Had I not done Shakespeare, Pinter, Moliere and things such as ‘Godspell’ – I played Judas in a hugely successful production before I did ‘Elm Street’ – I’d probably be on a psychiatrist’s couch saying: ‘Freddy ruined me.’ But I’d already done 13 movies and years of non-stop theatre.
Robert Englund

I was born in Owerri and grew up in the east of Nigeria, in Imo state. You could say I was a ‘street boy’: we grew up on the street, played on the street, did everything out on the street. It was a difficult life altogether, but that’s how we grew up.

It isn’t enough just to scream at the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations. We need our political system to start reflect this anger back into, ‘How do we fix it? How do we get the economy going again?’
Colin Powell
There are just some really beautiful people in the world. When you’re walking down the street, or you’re at a restaurant, someone catches your eye because they have their own look.

James Spader
I’m just shocked and thankful that I’ve gotten away with everything – experimenting here, trying at this, failing at that, being good in some things, not so good in others. It’s kind of amazing that people are still sticking by me. When they come up to me in the street, I just want to write them all cheques.
Michael Keaton
It’s hard to encapsulate my inspiration because there are so many different looks, but I think it’s just like, sexy girl you see walking down the street in a cool outfit. A lot of eyelet, a lot of leather, playing with the hard and the soft, the good and bad inside of us all.
Chloe Sevigny
I like how fashion is becoming more like music. It’s more adaptive to young kids. It’s more adaptive to a more on-the-go lifestyle. More street vibe. But I’ve always been into it.
Travis Scott
I began singing in dive bars and really small clubs. I dragged my piano down the stairs, and I went down the street with my keyboard, and I would go to every different dive bar that I could get to agree to let me play. I’d call and pretend I was Lady Gaga’s manager.
Lady Gaga
I’m not scared of getting hurt. I’m not scared of, pretty much, anything. If you live your life scared, what’s the fun in living it? If you were scared of getting hit by a car, would you still cross the street?
Mark Zupan
‘Boyz-n-the-Hood’ was actually supposed to be written for Eazy’s group. He had a group out in New York called Home Boys Only, called HBO. One of them looked like LL Cool J.

We will keep the promise of Social Security by taking the responsible steps to strengthen it – not by turning it over to Wall Street.

Bertrand Russell
Freud was the son of a Jewish merchant who had to move his whole family to Vienna because he couldn’t get work. He, as a boy, had to watch his father be mocked and abused on the street for being Jewish… You develop a thick skin and you develop a certain kind of wit to defend yourself.
Viggo Mortensen
I’m not averse to helping Wall Street when it helps Main Street.

William Blake
From the streets of Cairo and the Arab Spring, to Occupy Wall Street, from the busy political calendar to the aftermath of the tsunami in Japan, social media was not only sharing the news but driving it.
Dan Rather
In Downing Street they called me ‘Boss’. Civil servants would always call me ‘Prime Minister’.

Bob Dylan
I grew up in Lucknow, which is famous for its street food and kebabs. It was the street food and Lucknowi kebabs that inspired me. The culture of the varieties of food that I tasted as a child inspired me to be a cook.

If you’re walking down the street and you smell a scent, it can take you right back to a memorable time in your life, whether it’s a moment with an ex-girlfriend or a childhood event.

Vanessa Hudgens
My hope is that 10 years from now, after I’ve been across the street at work for a while, they’ll all be glad they gave me that wonderful vote.
Sandra Day O’Connor
I will always fight for peace. But, unfortunately, it is war that drives us forward. It is war that makes the major turns. It makes Wall Street function; it makes all the bastards in the Balkans function.
Emir Kusturica
It always amazes me to think that every house on every street is full of so many stories; so many triumphs and tragedies, and all we see are yards and driveways.

Woody Harrelson

Zig Ziglar
I used to love it when I walked down the street and construction workers would whistle.
Eartha Kitt
Political correctness is a poison to our security and defenses. It imposes a willful blindness, both at the macro level when unwilling to engage with radical Islamism or whatever you want to call it – if you’re not willing to call it what it is – and at the micro level, at the street level.
Pete Hegseth
There are many random, unprotected sites online that appear safe to use and are ready to accept credit card information. You wouldn’t give a stranger off the street your credit card information, so be extra cautious about who you are sharing it with online.
Alexa Von Tobel
Livable neighborhoods with a vibrant street life will stimulate our economic life as well.
Gavin Newsom
I have very fond memories of growing up in Greece, of my brothers and I causing chaos and climbing up trees, which is really cool. Back then, we didn’t have all the video games and all that stuff. We just had each other, and we played on the street.
Tracy Spiridakos
I don’t like the collusion between high fashion design and high street. You have to know where you stand. I belong to luxury fashion. That’s what I’ve always felt and embraced.

Hedi Slimane
A dead end street is a good place to turn around.

Jonathan Agnew
What is not in the open street is false, derived, that is to say, literature.
Henry Miller
Jean Shrimpton was the most beautiful of all the models I have known. To walk down the King’s Road, Chelsea, with Shrimpton was like walking through the rye. Strong men just keeled over right and left as she strode up the street.

John Lydon
Both Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich supported the Wall Street bailout.
Michele Bachmann
I was a street dancer.
Eartha Kitt
I’m about 75 pages into a book on poetry. I don’t know if anybody wants to read it. It’s on any broad variety of subjects. I walk down the street and think of a topic and jot it down and say, ‘Okay, that’s another one.’ They go from the humorous to the serious to every topic imaginable.
Marv Levy
On ‘America’s Top Model,’ I’ve always told my girls to smile with their eyes. We call it ‘smizing.’ Over the years, it’s actually become part of pop culture. I would be walking down the street, and girls would say, ‘Smize!’
Tyra Banks
The street is a room by agreement.
Louis Kahn
Mulberry Street was the beating heart of the Italian-American experience, but you don’t find those gangsters now. I live with a bunch of yuppies and models.

Kamal Haasan
The leading cause of death among fashion models is falling through street grates.
Dave Barry
Our people went out every single night trying to stop crime before it happened, trying to take people off the street that they believed were involved in crime. That made us a very aggressive, proactive police department.
Daryl Gates
Gambling can turn into a dangerous two-way street when you least expect it. Weird things happen suddenly, and your life can go all to pieces.

Khaled Hosseini
Food Stamp recipients didn’t cause the financial crisis; recklessness on Wall Street did.
Barack Obama

In the house in Beverly Hills where our four children grew up, living conditions were a few thousand times improved over the old tenement on New York’s East 93rd Street we Marx Brothers called home.

Albert Camus
To me, acting is acting… I’d be happy working on a street corner in a mime troupe.

Etta James
When I was old enough to walk home alone from school, I loved seeing our house from a distance. It sat on the corner of South Muirfield Road and West 4th Street and had this proud, majestic look. But I rarely went through the front door. The back was more dramatic.
Natalie Cole
People still recognize me all the time on the street. The first thing they say when they stop me is, ‘Where have you been?’ The second comment they make is always, ‘Oh, you’ve grown up.’
Macaulay Culkin
Every black American is bilingual. All of them. We speak street vernacular and we speak ‘job interview.’
Dave Chappelle
I hate the hand that comes out of a car and just drops litter in the street. I hate that! For some reason, it just fills me with fury! It’s just utter laziness, lack of interest in other people, lack of interest in the planet, in the hedgehog who might eat the plastic bag, it’s a lack of concern.
Joanna Lumley
There were two very distinct voices going on in my head and I moved easily between them. One had to do with sports, street life and establishing myself as a male… The other voice, the one I had from my street friends and teammates, was increasingly dealing with the vocabulary of literature.
Walter Dean Myers
I couldn’t walk down any street in Britain without being laughed at. It was a nightmare. My children were devastated because their dad was a figure of ridicule.
David Icke
To be honest, busking was a massive part of becoming aware of homelessness. I used to run into a lot of ‘Big Issue’ sellers and a lot of people on the street. It really opened my eyes to the kind of life that they live and the options that are open for them – or not, actually.
Passenger
What is straight? A line can be straight, or a street, but the human heart, oh, no, it’s curved like a road through mountains.
Tennessee Williams
When I got to college, acting suddenly seemed like a very risky proposition and all my friends were going to law school or med school or Wall Street.
Wentworth Miller
I make documentaries from time to time to remind myself of reality. It’s like musicians doing scales to keep their fingers working: when you’re in the street, listening to people, you’re forced to be in the service of your subject.
Agnes Varda
I don’t know… Philly’s a little different. It’s a little bit more competitive. Everybody’s got something to prove. In Atlanta, you see stars every day walking down the street; it’s normal.
Lil Uzi Vert
I’m married to the street; I ain’t gonna switch over. I ain’t gonna go religion on nobody. I believe in God – God is for the thugs too – but the streets are in the most trouble. So I’mma keep it focused on the streets and the struggle. That’s what I’m mainly about.
Trick Daddy
We didn’t become the most prosperous country in the world just by rewarding greed and recklessness. We didn’t come this far by letting the special interests run wild. We didn’t do it just by gambling and chasing paper profits on Wall Street. We built this country by making things, by producing goods we could sell.
Barack Obama
Tyler Perry’s brand is faith, family and this whole thing that I’ve built, while my company, 34th Street Films, is like Disney’s Touchstone. We can do anything. People don’t know what to expect from me yet.
Tyler Perry
I have no illusions at all about being a sex symbol. None of my former girlfriends ever thought of me that way, and I don’t have any packs of women chasing me down the street like a Brad Pitt or someone like that.
Tobey Maguire
But, people are recognizing me more. Sometimes fans just approach me on the street and say how much they love the show. It’s great to get that kind of feedback.
Catherine Bell
Why, over her political career has Wall Street been a major – the major campaign contributor to Hillary Clinton? You know, maybe they’re dumb and they don’t know what they’re going to get, but I don’t think so.
Bernie Sanders
Violence against women is real and something I feel passionately about, and the gateway to all that is wolf whistling. It’s allowing a man to impose his will on a woman who is just trying to walk down the street and live her life. It’s all about unwanted versus wanted attention, and, of course, there’s a fine line.
Elizabeth Banks
There’s sadness to anyone that dies before their time, and specifically ones that seem to affect people in a positive way. It doesn’t matter if it’s Whitney Houston or a nameless, faceless person on the street. That’s just as big of a tragedy for me.
Chris Cornell
A citizen of America will cross the ocean to fight for democracy, but won’t cross the street to vote in a national election.

Johnny Weir
I’ve been in and out of Wall Street since 1949, and I’ve never seen the type of animosity between government and Wall Street. And I’m not sure where it comes from, but I suspect it’s got to do with a general schism in this society which is really becoming ever more destructive.
Alan Greenspan
My mom and pop took me to the Apollo Theater on my thirteenth birthday to see Heavy D and Keith Sweat. It was late at night, up on 125th Street, and it was crazy!
Jadakiss
If you look at landscape in historical terms, you realize that most of the time we have been on Earth as a species, what has fallen on our retina is landscape, not images of buildings and cars and street lights.
Bill Viola
In Taiwan, I’d be like Michael Jordan walking down the street.
Ang Lee
Ideally the world would look like Davos, where there’s more security than we can even see on the street.
Bill Owens
With stand-up, I can have an idea, go down the street to a comedy club and work on it, flesh it out, book a venue, people will come, then film it. I do all that myself; I never have to answer to anybody.
Aziz Ansari
A positive attitude is a choice, like walking to the other side of a street to avoid trouble or making a 180-degree turn when you feel you’re heading in the wrong direction.

God did not want me to be a blind beggar on the street, alone and bitter. He gave me music, first to be my companion and then to be my salvation.
Jose Feliciano
Nahmir is just an idiot. He just glorifies street life. He idolizes it.
Cordae
You can take for granted that people know more or less what a street, a shop, a beach, a sky, an oak tree look like. Tell them what makes this one different.
Neil Gaiman
Quality of life actually begins at home – it’s in your street, around your community.
Charles Kennedy
Idealism, unrealistic idealism, is always contrasted with the reality of the people, of the man in the street. The details of daily life are always more convincing than the political fantasies of the earlier generations.
Orhan Pamuk
As far as my street cred goes, I’ll always have that, because I always hang with the kids. I’ll jump right off the stage and buy them a beer. I’ll be a star on stage, but I’ll always hang with the kids.
Kid Rock
I don’t think my wheelhouse is comfortable in Wall Street. My wheelhouse is small-town America.
Jimmy John Liautaud
It’s important to choose initial investors who are not twitchy and rushing for an exit. Wall Street’s quarter-by-quarter lens may make the CEO make sub-optimal long-term decisions.
Roelof Botha
I never hide, when I walk down the street, someone’s going to take my picture, that’s what I look like.
Carnie Wilson
DJs and people in the street know what they like.
Roy Ayers
I would often find myself, at the age of 21, at midnight, running down a dark street on my own with 10 men chasing me. And the fact they had cameras in their hands made that legal.
Sienna Miller
I like Burton Malkiel’s ‘A Random Walk Down Wall Street.’ He comes to the same conclusion that I do – that indexing is the way. My ‘Little Book of Common Sense Investing’ says pretty much the same thing.
John C. Bogle
My attitude about Hollywood is that I wouldn’t walk across the street to pull one of those executives out of the snow if he was bleeding to death. Not unless I was paid for it. None of them ever did me any favors.
James Woods
There are just some really beautiful people in the world. When you’re walking down the street, or you’re at a restaurant, someone catches your eye because they have their own look. It goes way beyond what they’re wearing – into their mannerisms, the way they smile, or just the way they hold themselves.
Mary-Kate Olsen
I wrote poems in my corner of the Brooks Street station. I sent them to two editors who rejected them right off. I read those letters of rejection years later and I agreed with those editors.
Carl Sandburg
I find inspiration in what artists and regular people on the street wear, but I’m also very influenced by what I like to wear since I style myself.
Kygo
Blockchain technology has such a wide range of transformational use cases, from recreating the plumbing of Wall Street to creating financial sovereignty in the farthest regions of the world.
Perianne Boring
Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Growing up, if I hadn’t had sports, I don’t know where I’d be. God only knows what street corners I’d have been standing on and God only knows what I’d have been doing, but instead I played hockey and went to school and stayed out of trouble.
Bobby Orr
The world of Manhattan is small and tightly knit, and the man on top retains a certain humility. He knows how far and fast he can fall by looking at the guy across the street. The view from the $250,000 apartment covers a lot of ground, most of it condemned.
Herb Caen
Natural gas is better distributed than any other fuel in the United States. It’s down every street and up every alley. There’s a pipeline.
T. Boone Pickens
My mother wasn’t rich, and I never seen my father. I was a street performer. I’ve been shot. And now I’m known around the world, and I’ve touched a lot of people with my music. That’s one of the great testimonies that’s gonna go down in history.
R. Kelly
I agree that there are some bad apples on Wall Street. I spent about ten years exposing corporate and financial fraud for ‘Barron’s’ magazine and I found a lot to write about.
Ben Stein
Thank you, Occupy Wall Street. With your vivid example of anticapitalist squalor, I’ve been able to convince all three of my children to become investment bankers.
P. J. O’Rourke
I don’t really care what the man on the street thinks. I never did anything to please him in the first place, and I’m not going to start now.
Boris Becker
I always like to see if the art across the street is better than mine.
Andy Warhol
When it comes to America’s economy, the truth is that Mitt Romney believes that the key to our country’s economic future lies in the failed policies of the past, the same ones that put banks before people, Wall Street before Main Street, plunging us into recession and devastating the middle class.
Charlie Gonzalez
We had a tiny budget for ‘The Greatest,’ which was the opposite of ‘Wall Street.’ We just kind of went in and did it. You’ve got four or five takes and then you’ve got to move on. We didn’t even have trailers to stay in or anything.
Carey Mulligan
What happens if you stand passively by the side of the road with a placard saying, you know, ‘Stop climate change’ is you just get ignored. When you get on the street and block it, people start to have a conversation about this existential situation that we’re in.
Gail Bradbrook
I’m not a person that’s walkin’ down the street looking mean all day.
Missy Elliott
During the winter of 2013, we were running ‘Comet’ up in midtown – as opposed to downtown – and across the street in the Standard, and that was, like, our third time going at it, from Ars Nova to downtown to near Broadway. We weren’t on Broadway. We were near Broadway, as we said.
Phillipa Soo
I worked on the line, I’ve been an executive chef, I’ve worked for the Mets, I’ve worked for various steakhouses, vegetarian restaurants, a lot of Middle Eastern stuff. I’ve worked my fair share of a lot of different things. I’ve worked at festivals and street fairs, you know? I’ve been through it all.
Action Bronson
I have worked on Wall Street and on Bay Street. I started a charity and I’ve been doing it while raising four children. And I think that’s the kind of experience people want to see from their political leaders. It’s real life experience.
Caroline Mulroney
If you see somebody running down the street naked every single day, you stop looking up.
Stevie Nicks
Always live in the ugliest house on the street – then you don’t have to look at it.
David Hockney
I just use my muscles as a conversation piece, like someone walking a cheetah down 42nd Street.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
Right now the long-term investors are telling us that they’re not as concerned about inflation and so we’re seeing these rates now move into the marketplace and out to the street – rates that individuals can get.
Franklin Raines
You know, I do speak the Queens English. It’s just the wrong Queens that’s all. It’s over the 59th Street Bridge. It’s not over the Atlantic Ocean.
Cyndi Lauper
In a polling conducted by the Wall Street Journal, 11 out of 12 Americans said they oppose the taking of private property, even if it is for public economic good.
Jim Ryun
I supported myself by delivering the ‘Wall Street Journal’ and doing odd jobs. I love plumbing and carpentry.
David Lynch
I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things… I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind.
Leo Buscaglia
I asked my daughter when she was 16, What’s the buzz on the street with the kids? She’s going, to be honest, Dad, most of my friends aren’t into Kiss. But they’ve all been told that it’s the greatest show on Earth.
Ace Frehley
Of course a poem is a two-way street. No poem is any good if it doesn’t suggest to the reader things from his own mind and recollection that he will read into it, and will add to what the poet has suggested. But I do think poetry readings are very important.
James Laughlin
Although we work through financial markets, our goal is to help Main Street, not Wall Street.
Janet Yellen
The skyscraper establishes the block, the block creates the street, the street offers itself to man.
Roland Barthes
I think we all have our own personality, unique and distinctive, and at the same time, I think that our own unique and distinctive personality blends with the wind, with the footsteps in the street, with the noises around the corner, and with the silence of memory, which is the great producer of ghosts.
Octavio Paz
What I’m fighting for now in my work… for an expression relevant to all manner of blacks, poems I could take into a tavern, into the street, into the halls of a housing project.
Gwendolyn Brooks
I was for two years a pupil at the Model School in Fort street which was then conducted upon the Irish national system, and if any special religious instruction was given in connection with that system, I do not recollect it.
Edmund Barton
We have these weapons of mass destruction on every street corner, and they’re called donuts, cheeseburgers, French fries, potato chips, junk food. Our kids are living on a junk food diet.
Joel Fuhrman
For me, music was the only reason I went to school. I was kind of a street kid, in a lot of trouble committing crimes and stuff. Music gave me something to focus on.
Flea
When I was a kid, I was surrounded by girls: older sisters, older girl cousins just down the street… except for an older boy named Vito who threw rocks. Each year I would wish for a baby brother. It never happened.
Wally Lamb
The road to Easy Street goes through the sewer.
John Madden
Like, people recognizing me on the street never interested me.
Meg White
I’m so easily inspired – if I like someone in the street’s clothing, I always say ‘You look amazing.’
Lady Amelia Windsor
You never see a man walking down the street with a woman who has a little potbelly and a bald spot.
Elayne Boosler
Last time I was in London, I visited Number 5, Bruton Street, which is the address I gave to Violet Bridgerton, the matriarch of the Bridgerton clan in my novels. It was a bit disconcerting to learn that it’s actually a pub.
Julia Quinn
I talk about things that real street cats can relate to.
E-40
I left Northwestern University after a year and was in New York playing piano in a little bar on 58th Street, and I didn’t know whether to go back.
Warren Beatty
Since I was two or three years old, I remember always being with the ball. I would see kids playing on the street, and would join them.
Sadio Mane
It was a time after ‘Lady Sings the Blues’ and ‘Mahogany’ and all those romantic movies: I became this romantic figure on the street in a very special way.
Billy Dee Williams
The best fashion show is definitely on the street. Always has been, and always will be.
Bill Cunningham
I can, and do, walk the street. No one bothers me or anything, because most people wouldn’t know who I am.
Paul Rudd
I’m not a hermit, but I definitely stay in a lot more than I used to. There’s more attention now then there ever was. You walk down the street with someone and it’s a story. It becomes national news, you know what I mean? So, I still do things, but I stay home a lot more.
Derek Jeter
I’m the greatest game-spitter of all time. I talk about the swell, the block, the ‘hood. I’m a street commentator. I narrate how people live. That’s E-40.
E-40
I was a dog in a past life. Really. I’ll be walking down the street and dogs will do a sort of double take. Like, Hey, I know him.
William H. Macy
In order to survive, I created a certain type of aura about myself that I was the baddest chick walking down the street. Anytime somebody underestimates me, Thug Rose comes out.
Rose Namajunas
Every day, I was on the street dribbling, doing skills. I wasn’t in an academy till I was 19.
Riyad Mahrez
I don’t want people following me around, everywhere I go, people talking to me and stuff. I don’t want to be walking down the street with a bodyguard. I don’t think that will be an issue playing in L.A.
Zack Greinke
I used to go to Sheen High Street with my dad on a Saturday, and there was a butcher next door to the fishmonger. I hated the smell of the fishmonger, but I found the smell of the butcher’s much more appealing. And I liked the big knives. I thought it looked like a decent job.
Rory Kinnear
I am a psycho therapist and I used to teach street children.
Manini Mishra
In Italy, one game you win and score, you cannot go in the street because the people are so enthusiastic, and when you lose they go crazy. After the game they wait for you.
Bojan Krkic
I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things… I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind.
Leo Buscaglia
Intelligent people should learn from their experiences. With people on the street, the bad experience has beaten them.
Robert Kiyosaki
When I walk down the street in a dress, people think I’m transgender. The issue isn’t that I’m embarrassed to be thought of as transgender: the issue is that people treat transgender individuals so violently, especially if they think it’s male to female.
Rain Dove
But I’m not a tough guy or a street fighter for real. I’m just an actor.
Channing Tatum
When we have spiritual reading at meals, when we have the rosary at night, when we have study groups, forums, when we go out to distribute literature at meetings, or sell it on the street corners, Christ is there with us.
Dorothy Day
Not trying to be arrogant, but if I walked down the street and a girl saw me, she might take a look back because maybe I’m good-looking, right?
Justin Bieber
No one expects the doormat to stand upright, shake itself off, and amble down the street to seek its own happiness.
Lynn Coady
The design of a dress, furniture, a house, a room, a street and a city are all the same process.
Gianfranco Ferre
Time is a beautiful thing. It’s like when you meet an old lover on the street six years later and they don’t look so ugly anymore.
Sarah McLachlan
Sometimes I walk down the street and hear people whisper ‘that’s Tricky’ and I look back, and I see them looking back, then that affects everything I do – the way I walk the way I talk. It stops you being real.
Tricky
Not a day goes by where I’m not reminded of Gollum by some person in the street who asks me to do his voice or wants to talk to me about him. But because ‘The Hobbit’ has been talked about as a project for many years, I knew that at some point I’d have to reengage with him.
Andy Serkis
If I looked good in ‘Wolf of Wall Street,’ I cannot take full credit; it was because of the hair extensions and makeup.
Margot Robbie
Growing up on the plantation there in Mississippi, I would work Monday through Saturday noon. I’d go to town on Saturday afternoons, sit on the street corner, and I’d sing and play.
B. B. King
I describe myself as an environmentalist not because I’m marching in the street with placards but because I like to be in the woods by myself.
T. C. Boyle
The only good political movement I’ve seen lately was Occupy Wall Street. They had no leaders, which was genius. But unfortunately it always ends up with some hippy playing a flute.
John Lydon
I like to mix the street look with classy and sexy. I call it ‘hood chic.’
Justine Skye
Unfortunately, the average guy on the street believes that studying evolution leads to atheism.
Greg Graffin
Once Wall Street starts putting money into Bitcoin – we’re talking about hundreds of millions, billions of dollars moving in – it’s going to have a pretty dramatic effect on the price.
Barry Silbert
Learning a new trick will just happen randomly when I’m skating and if I feel good doing it, I take it to a street spot. If I’m really confident in it I practice it a lot, so I can do it in a contest.
Nyjah Huston
The smartest billionaires I know never finished high school. I got my degree and my doctorate on the street and an advanced degree in jail.
Tommy Chong
While I oppose the death penalty as a policy matter, in a legal culture in which we reserve the right to execute people for relatively routine street crimes, it seems quite absurd for the justice system to get squeamish about executing the operational masterminds of Sept. 11.
Benjamin Wittes
Everybody that I meet inspires me. You can learn so much from any person that you meet any day on the side of the street.
Nick Carter
It doesn’t matter what famous person I’ve come across in the street, I don’t think I’ve ever shouted.
Lewis Hamilton
English usage is sometimes more than mere taste, judgment and education – sometimes it’s sheer luck, like getting across the street.
E. B. White
