Mark Twain
One of my favorite artists is Tom Waits, whom most people think of as a wonderful singer-songwriter and a great poet. I certainly think of him that way, but I also know him as a terrific actor. You know, that persona that he puts on when he’s doing his music comes from being an actor, figuring out a persona.
Jeff Bridges
Tom Tom Club has a whole different attitude and approach, not just musically but in performance. Some people said they liked it.
Tina Weymouth

Bonnie Raitt
Relying on the government to protect your privacy is like asking a peeping tom to install your window blinds.
John Perry Barlow
She broke up with me. Didn’t really tell me why. Luckily when you’re the guy, you can just tell people she’s crazy. ‘Hey, Tom, I heard you and Lucy broke up.’ ‘Yeah, man. Turns out, she’s crazy.’ That’s what they always do on Entourage.
Aziz Ansari
Another hero was Tom Swift, in the books. What he stood for, the freedom, the scientific knowledge and being and engineer gave him the ability to invent solutions to problems. He’s always been a hero to me. I buy old Tom Swift books now and read them to my own children.

Slavoj ЕЅiЕѕek
She scissored the curls away, and – toms, grow easily sentimental over their haircuts, but I remember this sensation very vividly – it was not like she was cutting hair, it was as if I had a pair of wings beneath my shoulder-blades, that the flesh had all grown over, and she was slicing free.
Sarah Waters
[Tom Cotton] has been an absolute champion of the idea of getting rid of Obamacare, scrapping the Affordable Care Act.
Rachel Maddow
Tom Hanks is a huge superstar. And people tell me he’s a very nice guy, not arrogant, not an entitlement guy. But very quietly, Mr. Hanks has become a left-wing power player in Hollywood.
Bill O’Reilly
The guy [Tom Cruise] is a machine.
Patrick Heusinger
I’m gonna see ‘Mission Impossible’ Part 9 because I like Tom Cruise movies! But just because the box office has that one receipt from the ticket I purchased, doesn’t mean it represents someone who liked it.
Sean Patrick Flanery
Men have a lot less to write about, unless you’re somebody like Tom Waits or John Lennon. And the female voice is much more suited to melody. Men have this barky thing – we’re domesticated apes with a microphone.
Brandon Boyd
Since I’ve been in the Senate, is that my work with people like Tom Coburn on opening up transparency in government, making sure that every dollar the federal government spends that’s out there – that that’s all posted on a searchable database on the Internet.
Barack Obama
I think Paul Newman had an amazing career. I also love what Tom Hanks has done. He has always made very grounded movies that have something to say. He has found a way to make blockbusters that are about something and that is what I want to do.
Josh Duhamel
There are certainly laws and elements that make a film more accessible to mainstream audiences. If you’ve got Tom Cruise as a strongman, I’m sure it would have larger audiences, but it wouldn’t have the same substance.
Werner Herzog
So, they had this 40-odd year friendship with each other and with Mr Harwood. So, when I came on it Albert, Tom and Maggie were in the cast. But then Albert wasn’t up for it, so he had to withdraw.
Dustin Hoffman

John Travolta
The White House encouraged Tom Brady to be more of a role model. They would’ve said more, but there was a drunken Secret Service agent streaking across the Rose Garden.
Jimmy Fallon
People always ask me, when I had the idea for TOMS, did it change my life? As romantic and noble as it is, no it did not change my life. But when I went to Argentina on that first shoe-drop, it did change my life.
Blake Mycoskie
I’d like everyone to imagine a world where you get a job as Tom, and then the next day you’re Tina. Imagine you’re in the world where you love what you do, but people say that you can’t be who you are.
Whoopi Goldberg
I can’t write story-songs, like I couldn’t write a Bob Dylan or Tom Waits song. I can only write whatever weird phrases come into my head, and hope that they’re good.
Jay Watson
If you start paying attention to Tom Hanks, you realize that he’s not the Jimmy Stewart of our age. He’s a very nice man. Everyone that I know that knows him says he’s a great father. But, let’s not pretend that he’s something that he’s not. He’s just like George Clooney. He’s a very radical leftist.
Bill O’Reilly
Too bad that Paul Ryan confessed to being a fan of Rage Against The Machine. By doing so, he not only begged for a bucketing by many of their fans but actually got one from the band’s guitar player, Tom Morello.
Henry Rollins
Like the rest of us, Tom Paulin is a bundle of contradictions. At its finest, his work is brave, adventurous, original and wonderfully idiosyncratic.
Terry Eagleton
Others have falsely claimed to be the inspiration for Tom Booker in The Horse Whisperer. The one who truly inspired me was Buck Brannaman. His skill, understanding and his gentle, loving heart have parted the clouds for countless troubled creatures. Buck is the Zen master of the horse world.
Nicholas Evans
Somebody says, ‘Do a Tom Bodett, a folksy kind of thing,’ and it sounds like something out of ‘Hee Haw,’ very insulting. They turn wry humor into disparaging sarcasm, and you get what amounts to insulting advertising.
Tom Bodett
Go on thinking that you don’t need to be read and you’ll find that it may become quite true: no one will feel the need tom read it because it is written for yourself alone; and the public won’t feel any impulse to gate crash such a private party.
Dylan Thomas
Tom Cruise’s pre-nup lets him keep his money, the kids and Katie Holmes.
Anthony Jeselnik
The best compliment I ever had is, one day I was in Nashville, some disc jockey said, Hey, that sounds like a Tom T. Hall song. Up until then there hadn’t been any such thing.
Tom T. Hall
I think he supersedes Peyton Manning but let’s not throw Tom Brady in the category with Joe Montana, who was 4-for-4. He’s royalty.
Deion Sanders
When I’m in the car sometimes it’s like, ‘Yeah, man, just put on the pop music.’ You know what I mean? I don’t want to listen to Tom Waits.
Max Greenfield
I was always going to act, literally ever since I was tiny. In fact, I have Doctor Who to thank for that. I wanted to become an actor after being obsessed with Tom Baker, the fourth Doctor Who, in the 1970s. His was the definitive performance of all time in anything.
David Tennant
I love all of his movies. I love all his movies. I love Tom.
Katie Holmes
There are a lot of writers from the South who would probably have once figured they needed to go to New York to make it who have stayed closer to home – people like David Joy, Tom Franklin, Sheldon Lee Compton, Wiley Cash, Mark Powell, and Alex Taylor.
Donald Ray Pollock
Satellite in my eyes
Like a diamond in the sky
How I wonder
Satellite strung from the moon
And the world your balloon
Peeping Tom for the mother station
Dave Matthews
For live you need a microphone for the snare and the high hat, the kick drum, a nice stereo overhead and one for the toms – you can get away with using four mikes.
Chad Smith
He hasn’t shown me anything but how he carries himself as a professional man, husband, father and athlete. Tom Brady is a pro’s pro. I love the man and everything he’s accomplished.

Show me a congenital eavesdropper with the instincts of a Peeping Tom and I will show you the making of a dramatist.
Kenneth Tynan
I wouldn’t want to be married to me, but luckily Tom Cruise does.
Nicole Kidman
Cameron threw her hands up in frustration. “What is this so-called ‘look’?” Whatever it was, she was going to have to start taking extreme measures to guard against it. Amy grinned. “You know the Tom and Jerry cartoon where Tom hasn’t eaten for days and he imagines Jerry looking like a ham? Kind of like that.
Julie James
[Tom Cotton] is known for his efforts to scale back legal immigration. Legal. He wants to stop legal immigrants from coming to this country. That`s very popular in Republican politics .
Rachel Maddow
If it comes from Tom Hauser, it’s the truth.
Roy Jones Jr.
‘In Search of Excellence’ – even the title – is a reminder that business isn’t dry, dreary, boring, or by the numbers. Life at work can be cool – and work that’s cool isn’t confined to Tiger Woods, Yo-Yo Ma, or Tom Hanks. It’s available to all of us and any of us.
Tom Peters
The guy I’ve never worked with that is pissing me off is Tom Hanks. I want to work with Tom Hanks more than anyone.

Don’t ask me who my favourite monster was because I’m sick of saying Tom Baker.
Lalla Ward
If Huck Finn or Tom Sawyer were alive today, we’d say they had ADD or a conduct disorder. They [boys] are who they are, and we need to love them for who they are. Let’s not try to rewire them.
Michael Gurian
My hope is to see Tom Cruise jumping on my couch.
Cristina Saralegui
Capitol Records were very keen for me to write and see how I got on; I think that is what defined my sound. The first session I had was with two young up-and-coming writers, Nick Atkinson and Tom Wilding, and I went into a session a bit nervous because I hadn’t written that many songs before.
Shane Filan
Giving feels good, but it’s also good for the bottom line. Charity is a viable growth strategy for a lot of companies. Our customers get excited to be a part of what we’re doing. If you ask anyone wearing Toms how they first heard about us, most won’t mention an advertisement; they’ll say a friend told them our story.
Blake Mycoskie
Whatever class and race divergences exist, top cats are tom cats.
Elizabeth Janeway
Senator [Tom] Cotton and his fellow lawmakers are back in D.C. and Republicans are split, they are divided about what to do with the repeal to feel Affordable Care Act. That`s topic that Senator Cotton was really berated for at that town hall event that almost did not happen.
Rachel Maddow
People ask me all the time if I’m from a family of writers. The literal short answer is no, but my father and his brothers and sisters and his mother are all people who would sit around with a Tom Collins and tell stories that seemed to get better and better each time they told them.
Anna Quindlen
My stern chase after time is, to borrow a simile from Tom Paine, like the race of a man with a wooden leg after a horse.
John Quincy Adams
Tom Osborne, Lou Holtz, Bobby Bowden were in our living room. My mom didn’t know who they were!
Hines Ward
Several of the actors I’ve had the good fortune of working with stand out in my mind as ‘ultimate’. I guess the obvious would be Tom Hanks, because he really is as fun and as genuine as he comes across in his films and interviews.
Barry Pepper
I don’t want to be Tom Cruise. I’m not after some movie blockbuster career. That’s not the kind of work I’m interested in. And frankly, it’s not the kind of work I’m ever going to get.
Randy Harrison
I greatly enjoyed Tom Reiss’s The Orientalist, for its mingled scholarship and sleuthing, and for so elegantly solving the puzzle of one of the Twentieth Century’s most mysterious writers.
Paul Theroux
If Bruce Springsteen, Harlan Howard, or Tom Waits can tell a character’s whole story in four minutes, maybe you don’t need as many words as you think to make an impact.
Tim Leffel
I had a guy come up to me once in the gym when I’m training arms and tell me that I should do curls this way. I looked at his arms and they were about fifteen inches. That would be like me walking up to Tom Platz and telling him how to squat!
Lee Priest
For me, I’m always looking for opportunities to work with people who are better than me, who are more experienced than me, people from whom I can learn. And who could I learn more from than someone with an unprecedented movie star career that has spanned over thirty years whose name is Tom Cruise?
David Oyelowo
When you talk about a great actor, you’re not talking about Tom Cruise. His whole behavior is so shocking. It’s inappropriate and vulgar and absolutely unacceptable to use your private life to sell anything commercially, but I think it’s kind of a sickness.
Lauren Bacall
I never feel more confident and comfortable than when I’m wearing a Tom Ford suit.
Matt Bomer
I’m not in a rush to do anything. And I wouldn’t say I pick and choose. When it comes to producers picking people for roles I don’t think it’s between me and Tom Cruise, do you know what I mean?
Matt LeBlanc
My buddy Tom… he’d been chasing a girl for two years, and he got her the old-fashioned way – dates and listening.
Greg Behrendt
You have the upper class Negroes who are the modern day Uncle Toms or the 20th century Uncle Toms. They don’t wear a handkerchief anymore. They wear top hats. They’re called Doctor, they’re called – Reverend, but they’re still – they play the same role today that Uncle Tom played on the plantation.
Malcolm X
Do I need to apologize for Mr.[Tom] Coburn’s statements? Because I certainly don’t agree with those, either.
Barack Obama
My childhood was influenced by the roles my father played in his movies. Whether Abraham Lincoln or Tom Joad in the Grapes of Wrath, his characters communicated certain values which I try to carry with me to this day.
Jane Fonda
I really love young Tom Hanks. He’s just one of my favorites. He’s a great, quirky every-man. I also love Zach Braff. I really love actors that are quirky and interesting, that sort of try to portray ‘normal’ people.
Jake Epstein
At the piping of all hands,When the judgment-signal’s spread-When the islands and the landsAnd the seas give up their dead,And the South and North shall come;When the sinner is dismayed,And the just man is afraid,Then Heaven be thy aid,Poor Tom.
John Gardiner Calkins Brainard
I have enormous respect for Tom Daschle. The NRA has not yet taken a formal position on which I’m aware of on this matter, and I think Tom may be just getting a little ahead of things.
John Dingell
I don’t use those terms [like Uncle Tom], and I would never speak in that kind of language.
Jill Stein
Tom DeLay ought to go back to Houston where he can serve his jail sentence.
Howard Dean
The second guy I met on the Internet was Tom, who I dated for around 6 months, which is by far the longest relationship I’ve ever had as an adult. We long distance dated mostly, chatting everyday for a long time on FB chat and Skype. It’s hard to imagine a more genuinely caring and kind individual. I owe a lot to him.
Marie Calloway
IT is mere coincidence that Cooper was born in the year which produced The Power of Sympathy and that when he died Uncle Tom’s Cabin was passing through its serial stage, and yet the limits of his life mark almost exactly the first great period of American fiction.
Carl Clinton Van Doren
My parents are my role models. I also love Halle Berry, Robert DeNiro, Eddie Murphy, Angela Bassett, Tom Cruise and Jennifer Lopez. When I see their work, I get engulfed in it. They really capture me.
I don’t remember any sibling rivalry growing up, because by the time I was really conscious, Tom was going away to college. My relationship with him, which is a very close one, really developed in more recent years.
David Hyde Pierce
I totally relate to Tom Cruise. He’s not crazy, it’s just the litany of the mid-life crisis.
Bret Easton Ellis
All I could think of was that the teachers must’ve found the illegal stash of candy I’d been selling out of my dorms room. Or maybe they’d realized I got my Essay on Tom Sawyer from the Internet without ever reading the book and now they were going to take away my grade. Or worse, they were going to make me read the book.
Rick Riordan
Dozens of members of Congress will be retiring next month, and some should be missed. But there is only one Tom Coburn, the Oklahoma senator the Christian Science Monitor has dubbed ‘a rabble-rousing statesman.’
John Fund
Not every actor is a Tom Cruise. They are not all used to doing big action movies and doing sliding bikes and cars and fights. So you’ve got to take actors who have maybe not done that kind of stuff and get them through some proper training first.
Wade Eastwood
I was leaving the hotel to get to the fight when my phone went and someone said ‘Hello Ricky, it’s Tom’. I said ‘Tom who?’ and when he said ‘Tom Jones’ I told him to eff off! I thought it was a wind-up!
Ricky Hatton
I think it was Columbia politics, Columbia Records politics that, that, Tom Wilson left [Bob Dylan] after “Like A Rolling Stone”.
Al Kooper
Tom Cruise is one of the most successful actors of all time.
Ezra Koenig
…Samuel rode lightly on top of a book and he balanced happily among ideas the way a man rides white rapids in a canoe. But Tom got into a book, crawled and groveled between the covers, tunneled like a mole among the thoughts, and came up with the book all over his face and hands.
John Steinbeck
Tom Brady rises up to the occasion and plays well. That is just who he is.
Deion Sanders
No, nothing,’ said Dumbledore, and a great sadness filled his face. ‘The time is long gone when I could frighten you with a burning wardrobe and force you to make repayment for your crimes. But I wish I could, Tom… I wish I could.
J. K. Rowling
I’m only two years older than Brad Pitt, but I look a lot older, which used to greatly frustrate me. It doesn’t anymore. I don’t have to fit into that category and get trounced by Tom Cruise and Brad.
George Clooney
I’ve been lucky that I’ve performed with a lot of the classical people I’ve wanted to work with so I’d like to do something that people didn’t see coming. Like Madonna, or being Welsh – the Tom Jones thing. Or somebody suggested N-Dubz – that would be brilliant!
Katherine Jenkins
Andy Harp’sВ RETRIBUTIONВ is a stunner: В a blow to the gut and shot of adrenaline. В Here is a novel written with authentic authority and bears shocking relevance to the dangers of today. В It reminds me of Tom Clancy at his finest. Put this novel on your must-read list-anything by Harp is now on mine.
James Rollins
I would just think that I would remember modeling for the cover of an album with Tom Waits, who I’ve always loved.
Cassandra Peterson
After seeing ‘Big,’ I wanted an elevator that opened directly into my apartment, just like Tom Hanks did.
Macaulay Culkin
Here was this man Tom Guthrie in Holt standing at the back window in the kitchen of his house smoking cigarettes and looking out over the back lot where the sun was just coming up.
Kent Haruf
In a perfect world, my tennis game gets better. I have kids and a beautiful wife and live on some hill somewhere that’s not in Los Angeles. And the script that Tom Hanks just barely turned down gets in my hands.
Matthew Perry
You must hold on to the sort of finger-painting aspect of music. That’s something I learned, particularly from listening to Neil Young. Tom Waits is another one, because Tom’s music is incredibly sophisticated and beautifully arranged, but he’s using a toolbox that’s unlike anybody else’s.
Elvis Costello
I want to be like Tom Freston. Tom just flies around everywhere, gets to make movies, gets to start TV shows, hang out with cool people and do whatever he wants.
Shane Smith
I don’t know many women who can relate to Sharon Stone and the kind of movies she does. I don’t know a lot of guys who can relate to Tom Cruise’s movies because they’re on a kind of fantastic level.
Kim Cattrall
I saw Brahms’s Hungarian Rhapsody on television when I was two. Tom and Jerry were playing it together. I thought, ‘Hey, if a cat can play like that, why can’t I?’
Lang Lang
It’s just weird that out of nowhere God said, May the three best-looking guys in Hollywood have babies – Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and me. It was bizarre that God said, I want to make the planet more beautiful, and I got the call.
Adam Sandler
Tom Paine was a great American visionary. His book, Common Sense, sold a couple of hundred thousand copies in a population of four or five million. That means it was a best seller for years. People were thoughtful then. Hope is one thing. But you need to have hope with thought.
Studs Terkel
I wish everyone would stop crying, Tom. Uncle Joe would be so angry about it.” But she’s crying herself now. “He’d be so angry at us, Tom, for crying so much when all he did was laugh.
Melina Marchetta
If you read the story of slavery and see the part that the Uncle Tom played in the plantation, and then you see how the white man today has changed his tactics, but he still occupies the same position, in that same context you find Uncle Tom. He has changed his tactics but he still occupies the same position.
Malcolm X
Harriet Beecher Stowe was thirty-nine when she began Uncle Tom’s Cabin. She had given birth to seven children and seen one die. She wrote her book to be serialized in an abolitionist newspaper. Much of it she composed on the kitchen table in between the cooking, mending, tending to her house.
Sophy Burnham
Bill Belichick and Tom Brady are the masters of finding something that you didn’t suspect.
Deion Sanders
Tom Hanks has been a huge idol of mine. I’d love to work with someone like him someday. You could learn a lot working with someone like that.
James Lafferty
Tom Selleck brings in the babes of all ages, I have to tell you. You can be 60, 80, or 16 and still love that man.
Bridget Moynahan
[Bobby Tom] finally understood Gracie’s function in his life. She was God’s joke on him.
Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Old Tom Bombadil is a merry fellow, Bright blue his jacket is, and his boots are yellow. None has ever caught him yet, for Tom, he is the Master: His songs are stronger songs, and his feet are faster.
J. R. R. Tolkien
When you think about Peyton Manning, you think about numbers. When you think about Tom Brady, you think about championships
Ray Lewis
Among liberals and Democrats, there is this notion that the poor – especially the black poor – can do no wrong. If you criticize any poor and black person who displays inappropriate, boorish or egregiously bad conduct, you’ll be dismissed as a racist if you’re not black. And as an Uncle Tom or sellout if you are.
Gregory Kane
I have always really liked Tom Jones and I can’t wait to see him in action. One thing is for sure, I would rather be singing for a living than getting punched on the head.
Ricky Hatton
They’ve said I’m gay, they’ve said everyone is gay. I personally don’t believe in doing huge lawsuits about that stuff. Tom does. That’s what he wants to do, that’s what he’s going to do. You do not tell Tom what to do. He is a force to be reckoned with.
Nicole Kidman
No one ever grew up intending to be an umpire, except perhaps my friend Bill Haller. His brother Tom wanted to be a catcher, so an affinity for masks must run in that family.
Ron Luciano
When you talk about a great actor, you’re not talking about Tom Cruise. His whole behavior is so shocking.
Lauren Bacall
I don’t want to grow up,’ Tom Waits said it. I live it. I put myself in a position to be a kid as long as I want to. I play loud music and scream for a living.
Jason Newsted
Even Tom Sawyer had a girlfriend and to talk about adults without talking about their sex drives is like talking about a window without glass.
Grace Metalious
Also, an area that interests me – and it will probably take years to state what I mean – is the period of the rise of democracy, with Tom Paine, which is around the turn of the 18th century into the 19th.
Fiona Shaw
What I look for in music is artistry, sincerity, and simplicity, and Tom Waits has all of that. I want to make a connection to the creator.
Steve Vai
Tom always did anger well. Hid it well, but showed it even better
Melina Marchetta
I’m disappointed in you Tom Brady
Jerome Bettis
Not knowing all of the conventions of beauty, he [Tom Thomson] found it all beautiful.
A. Y. Jackson
When I lived in Las Vegas, I was meeting everybody: Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Engelbert Humperdinck, Tom Jones – we won’t go there – but all these people that were working in Vegas a million years ago, way before I was Elvira.
Cassandra Peterson
Former U.S. House Majority Leader, Tom DeLay, has been sentenced to three years in prison. One year for money laundering and two more for his performance on ‘Dancing with the Stars.’
Jay Leno
In Alien, Sigourney Weaver’s role was written for a man. In Salt, Angelina Jolie’s role was written for Tom Cruise. These things, when reversed, do prove to be just as exciting and entertaining with women in leading roles.
Olivia Wilde
Tom doesn’t have any principles, or if he does, he puts them aside whenever they’re inconvenient. The truth hurts, doesn’t it, Tom?
Charles Grodin
It’s like Scott Wolf, I never thought he looked like Tom Cruise until somebody said it and now that they’ve said it, I see it every time I look at him!
Jeremy London
I mean, there’s obviously only one Leo [DiCaprio] but I look at guys like Mark Wahlberg and Tom Cruise and think I’d like to have that type of career… that would be really great if I could have that.
Scott Eastwood
Tom Arnold and I, we have a huge firefight scene on top of a German tank. I get to shoot 50 caliber rounds. We shoot a helicopter out of the sky. That’s the only fight I’m in.
Anthony Anderson
Leonard Cohen can give you “Leonard Cohen” – the self-deprecating wit, the slow, considered speech, the perfectly-honed anecdote – Tom Waits is far more comfortable giving a journalist “Tom Waits” the character, whose conversation is really a series of strange tales, learned or ad-libbed.
Sylvie Simmons
Go watch (Minority Report) if you can bear Tom Cruise for that long
Kara Swisher
Because Tom Doherty and people like that are not stupid. If they could have streamlined their operation more to get more money out of it, they would have done it. It’s not like they’re a bunch of idiots.
Jerry Pournelle
Tom [McCarthy] said to me, “Buddy, you got an Oscar nomination through that haircut! That’s the real feat, man.”
Mark Ruffalo
He knew that these creatures were dead, that they were reanimated echoes who wore the disguise of the people they had once been, but Tom’s words rang in his mind. They used to be people. How could he strike them? How could he hurt them? Children, women, old people. Lost souls.
Jonathan Maberry
I don’t care what Tom Cruise says about therapy.
Mickey Rourke
I have some calls out to Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and Eddie Murphy. I said, ‘I won’t star in any blockbuster films if you stay out of animated films.’ They just won’t call me back.
Jim Cummings
I think aboutВ Aaron Rodgers, he’s like Chris Evans before he got theВ HGHВ injection inВ Captain America. But before he was super smart and was still witty and stuff. That’s how I seeВ Tom Brady.
Michael Bennet
What about Tom Jones? He’s made a million and he’s a bloody awful singer.
Prince Philip
There is no one who likes a challenge more than Tom Cruise. Believe me, there was never any discussion of lip syncing or another voice or anything like that, because if the guy’s going to hang out on the top of the Burj, he’s not going to let anybody do his singing for him.
Adam Shankman
It’s not just back-to-back Super Bowls – it’s back-to-back Super Bowls in his first three years, it’s back-to-back Super Bowls climbing over the backs of Tom Brady and Peyton Manning… If Russell Wilson wins back-to-back Super Bowls, there is no doubt it puts him amongst the top.
Michael Irvin
I would have played Tom Finney in his overcoat – there would have been four men marking him when we were kickin’ in.
Bill Shankly
Acting is not a science. Anybody who believes that their success exists in relation to their goals is deluding themselves; unless you think of a career in terms of financial goals. I have nothing against Tom Cruise, but he must have a large capacity to deal with the business side of movies.
Val Kilmer
When I was 16, the first book I ever actually purchased with my own money, in fact, and had read on my own time was “Hunt for Red October” by Tom Clancy…
Max Brooks
Tom Cruise only makes one or two film appearances a year. A baseball player can be the hero or the goat one-hundred and sixty-two times a year.
Dave Winfield
Tom Jones is funny to me, man. I mean, he really tries to ape Ray Charles and Sammy Davis, you know. He’s nice-looking; he looks good doing it. I mean, if I was him, I’d do the same thing. If I was only thinking about making money.
Miles Davis
Anne Lamott’s priest friend Tom, how to get through: “Left foot, right foot, left foot, breathe,” he said. “Right foot, left foot, right foot, breathe.” Salon April 25, 2003
Anne Lamott
Tom’s [Brady] personal preferences on his footballs are something he can take about in much better detail and information than I could possibly provide.
Bill Belichick
Tom Hanks hits a new career peak. One of the best films of the year.
Peter Travers
I love Tom [Waits] for the same reason I love Leonard Cohen, which is that they are both one-offs, templates; they both seemed old, or at least dressed old when they were young; both kind of lived their careers backwards.
Sylvie Simmons
Roger Goodell makes $40 million a year, which more than compensates him for the most difficult and sensitive decision in his nine years as commissioner: How hard to come down on Tom Brady, the best quarterback in NFL history, who Goodell told me last year is a “great ambassador for the game”
Gary Myers
The press was all over to get a picture of me. It got to the point where they were all over my house, following me to work… Then Tom Brokaw and everybody else was doing stories, ‘A star is born.’
Fawn Hall
All dancers have a cumulative tendency, because each beat of the tom-tom has an almost irresistible appeal. Soon, those who were just spectators would dance too.
Camara Laye
Tom, had you and I been 40 days with Moses, and beheld the great God, and even if God himself had tried to tell us that three was one … and one equals three, you and I would never have believed it. We would never fall victims to such lies.
John Adams
I don’t consider myself no attractive man. People like Tom Jones and Elvis Presley – I’m not nothing like that.
Muhammad Ali
“Thank You for Being Late” pinpoints 2007 as the year what he calls the, quote, great acceleration began, ushering in a dizzying and disorienting era of change – technological, economic, environmental. Dealing with that change, the challenge of our time, says Tom Friedman. He’s here to explain it right now.
Mary Matalin
I’m an old rock and roll buff. I love Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty.
Nick Carter
Ho! Tom Bombadil, Tom Bombadillo! By water, wood and hill, by reed and willow, By fire, sun and moon, harken now and hear us! Come, Tom Bombadil, for our need is near us!
J. R. R. Tolkien
TOMS is no longer a shoe company… we’re a one-for-one company.
Blake Mycoskie
I liked Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer, and that is the kind of character that I would like to have played. That would have been more in tune with who I really was.
Keith Thibodeaux
On the music side, I’m a cross between maybe that Texas songwriter and that Tom Petty feel.
Bryan Hayes
There are only three men in the world who are licensed to wear shorts: Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp and Tom Cruise.
Bill Nighy
First day working with Tom Hiddleston. He is my ideal as an actor: brilliant, reliable, human, decent, open, and friendly. He charmed my daughter as he has charmed me. I think my kid charmed him, too. This is a fellow I could joyfully spend the rest of my career working with. He’s that good and that generous.
Jim Beaver
George [Mitchell] introduced the idea that we’d go on a retreat [and] to really regularize caucuses. He’s the one who had I think [Tom] Daschle become the Democratic Policy Committee chairman, so I think it lived through with Tom.
Barbara Mikulski
I am not a member of the chamber of commerce for show business, believe me, but there are some really good people in the business, and [Tom] Hanks has this everyman decency onscreen, but he actually is that guy.
Kurt Fuller
A handful of works in history have had a direct impact on social policy: one or two works of Dickens, some of Zola, ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin’ and, in modern drama, Larry Kramer’s ‘The Normal Heart.’
Tony Kushner
Tom Cotton voted against preparing America for pandemics like Ebola.
Mark Pryor
There are two kinds of people in boxing. Those who say, ‘Oh, boy; Tom Hauser is writing an article about me,’ and those who say, ‘Big problem; Tom Hauser is writing an article about me.’
Jim Lampley
Writers vary tremendously. Was it Tom Wolfe who stood up or was it [Ernest] Hemingway who had to stand up? I don’t know.
Rod Serling
I wanna get on TV and just let loose. But can’t, but it’s cool for Tom Green to hump a dead moose.
This is truly a blessing. Breyon Prescott, Peter Edge and Tom Corson believe in me and have introduced me to a home that also believes and knows exactly what to do with the type of music I’m doing.
Brandy Norwood
I’m a big fan of Tom Stoppard’s work, and have been since I was in school where I studied him.
Adelaide Clemens
Tom Cruise has-we all have-the right to practice how we feel…don’t judge someone until they have tossed your salad.
John Travolta
What else don’t women like besides the Three Stooges? Tom Waits. Being hurt physically or emotionally.
Julie Klausner
The “Highway 61” album [of Bob Dylan] was produced by Bob Johnston if I’m not incorrect. And Bob Johnston was an entirely different producer than Tom Wilson. Tom Wilson had produced jazz records and was a Harvard educated.
Al Kooper
I am someone who thinks that if you’ve got an actor like that who wants to perform your work, then you should do it, and hopefully Tom [Hardey] likes to do the work that I do, so long may it continue.
Steven Knight
I did not write it (Uncle Tom’s Cabin). God wrote it. I merely did his dictation.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
I don’t like to be described as a Southern writer. The danger is, if you’re described as a Southern writer, you might be thought of as someone who writes about a picturesque local scene like Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Gone With the Wind, something like that.
Walker Percy
You know how many movies it took Tom Cruise before he was making 5, 6 million dollars? It probably took a billion dollars in box office.
Jason Patric
When I look at great singers like Sinatra, Bennett and (Tom) Jones, I see great performers that can really move an audience. I really consider myself a troubadour privately and a song-plugger publicly.
Tiny Tim
If you’re thinking about coming to Tom Savini’s Special Make-Up Effects Program just STOP. Stop THINKING about it and just DO it. Aren’t we talking about making your dreams come true? Our students’ attitude is ‘This is school?’… because they are having so much fun every day doing what they love… and… they get a degree!
Tom Savini
Tom Brady says he wants to give the truck he was given as the Super Bowl MVP to the guy who won the Super Bowl for the Patriots. So Brady’s giving his truck toSeahawks coach Pete Carroll.
Conan O’Brien
There’s no drugs, no Tom in a dress, no psychiatrists.
Nicole Kidman
I don’t need to be Tom Cruise. I just need to work forever.
Jodie Foster
I don’t really know a lot of famous people. I’ve met a lot of famous people. If I ran into Tom Hanks today, I would have to remind him who I was and he would then remember me. But he wouldn’t come up to me and say, ‘Hi Dave!’
David Zucker
but I felt that Tom would drift on forever seeking, a little wistfully, for the dramatic turbulence of some irrecoverable football game
F. Scott Fitzgerald
There are a lot of actors that I really love to watch, actors who I have fun watching – I think Johnny Depp is phenomenal. But I wouldn’t want that career as much as I’d like a career like Tom Hanks – he kind of represents the everyman.
Jared Padalecki
It’s no wonder we’re all such a mess, is it? We’re like Tom Hanks in Big. Little boys and girls trapped in adult bodies and forced to get on with it.
Nick Hornby
Archaeology is the peeping Tom of the sciences. It is the sandbox of men who care not where they are going; they merely want to know where everyone else has been.
Jim Bishop
The first grave. Now we’re getting someplace. Houses and children and graves, that’s home, Tom. Those are the things that hold a man down.
John Steinbeck
Do you reckon Tom Sawyer was satisfied after all them adventures?
Mark Twain
I couldn’t watch Tom and Jerry. The cruelty was too much. I had all these strange images, of tiny animals, all mixed up.
Julie Walters
I’m certainly not Tom Cruise or Brad Pitt.
Jason Statham
I cling to the basic set of tenets laid out in Tom Wolfe’s ‘New Journalism’ – to get out there like the great French novelists of the 19th century and study life. I am a Tom Wolfe fan of the first order.
Peter York
The climate change plan set out a few days ago by federal NDP leader Tom Mulcair will get us there, which is why I strongly support it.
Rachel Notley
I don’t know why people called me Tom. My name is THUMB.
Thom Yorke
Never have your wallet with you onstage. It’s bad luck. You shouldn’t play the piano with money in your pocket. Play like you need the money.
Tom Waits
Mike, did you ever see the movie ‘Cast Away?’ In that movie, Tom Hanks’ only friend was a ball named Wilson. In this game, Russell Wilson’s only friend is a football.
Jon Gruden
Nothing is wrong with Tom Brady. When you look at the New England Patriots, they are going to have to readjust how they evaluate talent…You have to bring in some heavy hitters to protect Tom Brady at 37 years old and help him get the ball out of his hands.
Sterling Sharpe
Basher shook his head. “No, we climbed in through a ground-floor guest bedroom all ninja-like. Snuck up the back stairs.” “Then you might be the cavalry,” said Tom, “but I’m Santa Claus. Let’s go downstairs and open some presents.
Jonathan Maberry
… the hardest studio music to play is Tom & Jerry – cartoons. The music makes absolutely no sense, as music. You can’t get into hearing it. There’s nothing to hear-‘bleep!, blop! scratch!’ and it comes fast; everything’s first take. That’ll change the way you look at life.
Howard Roberts
Tom, my husband, who converted to Judaism when we got married, and as a consequence, we were learning about historical conversions to Judaism. Really, every time it pops up, it’s very strange.
Emily Barton
If I could write a story that would do for the Indian one-hundredth part what ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin’ did for the Negro, I would be thankful the rest of my life.
Helen Hunt Jackson
I always wanted to sound like a man, like Jeff Buckley or Tom Waits.
Florence Welch
Nobody becomes Tom Wolfe overnight, not even Tom Wolfe.
William Zinsser
The quad toms are a completely different animal than the standard drum set/trap kit. Playing wise and stylistically, they are two different beasts.
Tommy Lee
Tom Carnegie will never be replaced.
Mario Andretti
I think, Tom Friedman is right, and I think that we have to – we have to have a serious public dialogue to try to shift public policy in that regard.
Cornel West
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes had the baby. He was there for the birth. It would’ve been nice if he was there for the conception.
Joan Rivers
With the right information at our fingertips, we can always make better decisions. That is one of the reasons I’m working with Tom’s of Maine, in particular. For decades they’ve provided information about ingredients, their purpose and source.
Sophie Heyman Uliano
What’s the difference between a pickpocket and a peeping tom? A pickpocket snatches watches.
Redd Foxx
I was particularly stunned by the casting of Cruise, who is no more my Vampire Lestat than Edward G. Robinson is Rhett Butler.
Anne Rice
The same thing that Uncle Tom did on the plantation before [Abe] Lincoln issued the so-called Emancipation Proclamation.I have no thinking on the matter. But he’s teaching the black people to suffer peacefully, patiently, until the white man makes up his mind that you’re a human being the same as he.
Malcolm X
The mission of Tom Peterson and Catholics Come Home to bring souls home to Jesus and the church is critically important during this challenging time in our history. I fully support this New Evangelization project.
Rick Warren
Tom Kealey might be my favorite short story writer and this astonishing collection is long overdue.
Stephen Elliott
John Kerry told Tom Ridge he was too busy to receive a Homeland Security briefing. I thought that was odd, since you’re not supposed to ignore terrorist threats until after you become president.
David Letterman
I think Tom Paine is one of the greatest men that’s ever lived.
Richard Attenborough
There’s a rumor that NBC is going to have Tom Brokaw fill in temporarily as the NBC News anchor. When asked why, a network spokesperson said, ‘Because the only other NBC person we have is Bill Cosby.’
Conan O’Brien
I’m a big fan of Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty, they’re my two favorites.
Andrew Shue
I love Tom Cruise. When Penelope Cruz is through with him, I’m next.
Christina Aguilera
It’s nice to finally get scripts offered to me that aren’t the ones Tom Hanks wipes his butt with.
Jim Carrey
I have Tom Ford, Gucci, Saint Laurent, McQueen, and odd pieces that Ive just acquired because I happened to have come across them and felt they have some historical resonance.
Hamish Bowles
Tom Hanks has taken George Clooney’s place as the big-hitter driving a lot of liberal causes.
Bill O’Reilly
Be careful how you live; you will be the only Bible some people ever read.
William Thoms
I am 1,000 percent for Tom Eagleton and I have no intention of dropping him from the ticket.
George McGovern
I like men who are very cool but also so brilliant that they are almost insane. Sean Penn, Gary Oldman, Tom Waits – men who would be flipping burgers if they hadn’t found an outlet for their brilliant mind-sets. I also like men who have hands with big masculine veins that you can squish and move.
Jolene Blalock
The Democrats continue to snipe at Bush. They’ll never give it up to him. You know Teddy Kennedy and Tom Daschle pick more nits than a father and son spider monkey team who know they’re being followed by a National Geographic film crew.
Dennis Miller
If your opponent has you by fifty pounds, winning a fight against him is a dubious proposition, at best. If your opponent has you by eight thousand and fifty pounds, you’ve left the realm of combat and enrolled yourself in Road-kill 101. Or possibly in a Tom and Jerry cartoon.
Jim Butcher
The book that I wrote is called Dark Money, and it’s about secret spending that is very hard to follow. [George] Soros’s whole thing is about government transparency, so he spends very much in the open, and the same with [Tom] Steyer.
Jane Mayer
I really want to work with Tom Hardy. Christian Bale and Russell Crowe are also on my list. Those are my top three actors. As far as actresses go, Kate Beckinsale, because she’s so smokin’ hot.
Ryan Guzman
I wouldn’t put myself in that bracket, but it’s one of those things. I think what helps is that we [with Tom Hardey] don’t socialize, we don’t really know each other, we purely work together.
Steven Knight
They [Tom Hanks and Paul Newman] were simply always high level masters, and taught me as a kid actor never to be an a*shole to anybody, because it would be very tough to get past where they are.
Tyler Hoechlin
You have to look inside yourself and you have to say, well, what am I about? Why does anyone need this? Why does anyone need a ‘Tom Ford’ jacket? What do I believe in?
Tom Ford
Tom DeLay fears independent thinkers and fighters. I am both.
Martin Frost
I come from that earlier time in America when palm pilot was a nickname you recieved upon entering puberty! I was more than a palm pilot I was the palm Chuck Jager. Tom Wolfe wrote a book about me called The Right Hand Stuff. I was the only guy in my class hip enough to move to the European grip.
Dennis Miller
Russian directors, we are shooting the same streets. The same things. Tom Jacobson has a fresh eye and found very interesting and very cool locations and angles and characters.
Timur Bekmambetov
Who are you, Master?’ he asked. ‘Eh, what?’ said Tom sitting up, and his eyes glinting in the gloom. ‘Don’t you know my name yet? That’s the only answer. Tell me, who are you, alone, yourself and nameless?
J. R. R. Tolkien
What she needs,’ Tom said aloud ‘is a husband.’ Agnes said crisply, ‘Well, she can’t have mine.
Ken Follett
Anyone can see that to write Uncle Tom’s Cabin on the knee in the kitchen, with constant calls to cooking and other details of housework to punctuate the paragraphs, was a more difficult achievement than to write it at leisure in a quiet room.
Anna Garlin Spencer
You always ought to have tom cats arranged, you know – it makes ’em more companionable.
Noel Coward
Tom Cruise, he’s a lot more famous than me.
David Beckham
I don’t want to sound superficial, but when I go see a movie myself, I’d rather look at Tom Cruise than some shmo with a beer belly
Natalie Portman
Most vagabonds i knowed don’t ever want to find the culprit that remains the object of their long relentless quest. The obsession’s in the chasing and not the apprehending, the pursuit you see and never the arrest” – Tom Waits “Foreign Affairs
Tom Waits
Tom Ridge announced a new color-coded alarm system. … Green means everything’s okay. Red means we’re in extreme danger. And champagne-fuschia means we’re being attacked by Martha Stewart.
Conan O’Brien
I’m never going to be a Tom Clancy. And I wouldn’t really want to be – not that I have anything against him, and I wish him continued success – because that’s not why I’m writing novels. I’m doing it because I have to. I feel like I have to, anyway.
Michael Chabon
At the end of the playback of the take of “Like A Rolling Stone”, or actually during the thing, Bob Dylan said to the producer, turn up the organ. And Tom Wilson said, oh man, that guy’s not an organ player. And Dylan said, I don’t care, turn the organ up, and that’s really how I became an organ player.
Al Kooper
Schwarzenegger said last night on the show he expects his opponents to throw all kinds of dirt at him. And you know, it’s started already. Today, they released the one thing that could really hurt Arnold. Turns out he once starred in a movie with Tom Arnold.
Jay Leno
Once upon a time there were three kittens, and their names were Mitten, Tom Kitten, and Moppet. They had dear little fur coats of their own; and they tumbled about the doorstep and played in the dust.
Beatrix Potter
He’s managed to make himself something highly unusual for a man at this stage of his career: unclassifiable. Unpredictable. Tom Jones is no joke
Ken Tucker
I often ask students: ‘Is this what you would show Tom Ford?’ and they say: ‘No, we’d have done more work’ or ‘We’d have dressed better.’ So I say: ‘Why don’t you do that here?’
Louise Wilson
I’m not fast. But there are a lot of guys that are a hell of a lot slower than I am. Somebody wants to do a pay-per-view race between me and [Tom] Brady, sign me up.
Drew Bledsoe
You get to shoot things, and things blow up, and you’re jumping off of buildings. It’s insane! And hot girls. And you get to dress cool. And you’re in a movie with Tom Cruise, come on! So it’s a dream come true. Truly.
Josh Holloway
When you translate the American writers who are best with dialogue into German – someone like Elmore Leonard, or Tom Wolfe, who’s also quite good with dialogue. It’s very hard to translate them well.
Daniel Kehlmann
Created for MTV in 1990, the sharply observed, pop-conscious Ben Stiller Show – featuring its star’s lacerating impersonations of Bono, Tom Cruise, and Eddie Munster, among others – subsequently moved to Fox TV and copped an Emmy for writing.
Manohla Dargis
I think it would be ridiculous to work with Tom Hardy. I hear some crazy things about him, and he’s also really good.
Ansel Elgort
They thought they were Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall. In fact, they were more like Tom and Jerry
Bob Geldof
Jackson Pollock said once, “I don’t really feel that many people in this world are alive.” He said, “That’s why I like you, Tom. You’re alive.”
Tom Robbins
Donald Trump tweeted out to the world a quote allegedly from Senator Tom Coburn impugning my honesty. Within hours, Tom Coburn came out publicly and said, “That quote was an utter fabrication.”
Ted Cruz
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady says he thinks it would be great if Donald Trump was president. Which is really weird because I thought Brady didn’t like things that are filled with too much air.
Conan O’Brien
In other words, science tells us that Adam and Eve are fictions. That Saint Paul or Uncle Tom Cobley and all thought otherwise is irrelevant. They were wrong.
Michael Ruse
I didn’t have time. I was too busy breaking up Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman’s marriage. (on rumours he was responsible for Julia Roberts and Benjamin Bratt’s break-up)
George Clooney
That’s my No. 1 goal. I want to be part of (captain) Tom Lehman ‘s team.
Fred Funk
[Tom Cotton] is seen as a real rising star in the Republican Party. He`s the youngest member of the United States Senate, routinely described as an up and comer.
Rachel Maddow
Right after graduation, I married Samuel Fisher Babbitt, an academic administrator. I spent the next ten years in Connecticut, Tennessee, and Washington, D.C., raising our children, Christopher, Tom, and Lucy.
Natalie Babbitt
For the first two movies, I had a huge crush on Tom Felton. He was my first crush. He totally knows. We talked about it – we still laugh about it. We are really good friends now, and that’s cool.
Emma Watson
Kermit was the Everyman, the original Tom Hanks, but I have a special place in my heart for Fozzie Bear. The classic borderline hacky entertainer.
Jason Segel
Tom [Collins] was a great influence on me. He really pushed me…constantly demanded rewrites. And, as much as I despised them, it was the best thing that could have happened because he just wouldn’t settle for less. It had to be right, and it had to be good.
Dean Dillon
I was never the best-looking guy; I was never the Tom Cruise-looking guy.
Craig Sheffer
I don’t think political reform is likely to succeed. [Senators Tom] Udall and [Ron] Wyden, on the intelligence committee, have been sounding the alarm, but they are a minority.
Edward Snowden
My relationship with Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm reaches far back into my childhood. I grew up with Grimm’s fairy tales. I even saw a theater production of ‘Tom Thumb’ during Advent at the State Theater in Danzig, which my mother took me to see.
Gunter Grass
She can take a year to read something, whereas I like a book that becomes more important in my life that life itself. When I was in the middle of ‘Red Storm Rising’ by Tom Clancy – which was not selected for the Man Booker shortlist – you could have taken my liver out and fed it to the dog. And I wouldn’t have noticed.
Jeremy Clarkson
That is a beautiful tuxedo,” Phury announced as he and Z pushed the door wide. “I have one just like it .” “Fritz has the candles lit,” Rehv said from behind the twins. “Hey, nice tux. I haveone just like it.” “Me, too,” Phury agreed. “The fit is fantastic, isn’t it.” “The shoulders, right? Tom Ford is the best—
J.R. Ward
Truth is, we offered it to Tom Hanks, which pretty much every movie in America does, but Tom passed. Billy Bob said that Hanks recently called and said he’s voting for all of us for Oscars, he loved the film.
Peter Berg
One day in 1959, when Huddersfield were playing Cardiff City, Tom (T.V.) Williams, who was then chairman of Liverpool, and Harry Latham, a director, came down the slope at Leeds Road to see me.
Mr Williams said, ‘How would you like to manage the best club in the country?’
‘Why, is Matt Busby packing it up?’ I asked.
Bill Shankly
I spoke to Tom’s [Hardy] manager and said, “While we’re talking about Taboo, do you mind if I also mention this film project that I’ve got, which is called Locke, and I need Tom to play the lead.” And we spoke about both in that meeting and in the end the deal was that I would do Taboo if he did Locke and vice versa.
Steven Knight
I’ll be darned!” said Douglas. “I never thought of that. That’s brilliant! It’s true. Old people never were children!” “And it’s kind of sad,” said Tom, sitting still.”There’s nothing we can do to help them.
Ray Bradbury
I never got tired of Tom and Jerry, but I did have a dream of doing more with my life than making cartoons.
Joseph Barbera
My current novel, Pallas, is all about that culture war – in fact it’s been called the Uncle Tom’s Cabin of the Sagebrush Rebellion – and yet what I hear all too often from libertarians is that they don’t read fiction.
L. Neil Smith
Have a drink Tom and then you won’t feel so foolish to yourself.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
I Hated Duke. I Felt Like They Only Recruited Black Players That Were Uncle Toms.
Jalen Rose
If it makes Tom Cruise happy, I don’t care if he prays to turtles, … And I don’t think anybody else should.
Madonna Ciccone
I really liked Tom & Jerry. That was huge for me. I watched it every morning, before I walked to school. Even as a kid, I thought there was something really smart about it. I thought it was very clever.
Jason Lee
I used to stay at my hotel… I remember looking out of the window once and I saw (GB boxers) Tom Stalker and Kal Yafai skipping out of the Premier Inn and they jumped into a Range Rover to go to training.
Anthony Joshua
To Tom Carlson or his dog-depending on whose taste it best suits.
Ogden Nash
I always think I’m the Tom Cruise of music – a lot of success and fans, but no critics, darling.
Jon Bon Jovi
I don’t have the Tom Hanks fans. When you make the kind of movies I make, you get weird letters from people.
David Fincher
A stunner…reminds me of Tom Clancy at his finest.
James Rollins
Everybody has their own style. If you went to the movies every week and everybody acted the same way Tom Cruise did, boy, wouldn’t that suck?
Carrot Top
There are so many people I would love to work with, like Al Pacino, Paul Newman, Gary Oldman – maybe Tom Cruise. I wanna play his brother in something – so call my agent!
Scott Wolf
What led me to that was I have never – I mean, I watch movies and I don’t care who is the protagonist. I feel what that guy is feeling. You know, if it’s Tom Cruise leaping over a building – I want to make it, you know? And I’m going to – yes, I made it. And yeah, so I get that.
Meryl Streep
Harriet Beecher Stowe thought Uncle Tom’s Cabin was written through her by Another Hand, so little did she know what was going to happen from moment to moment in the book. She herself was amazed at what she was writing.
Sophy Burnham
[Tom] Wolfe’s books offered a whole new world to step into, and whilst at times you could accuse him of being somewhat long-winded, he had an incredible quality of prose and a bravery of writing from the heart. He believed in being autobiographical at all times.
Jude Law
Jazz is an Uncle Tom word. They should stop using that word for selling. I told George Wein the other day that he should stop using it.
Miles Davis
At this point I feel like I could go out and accomplish anything. I’d just love to see Will Smith’s face if he found out I, Z-Braff, have the number one rap album in the country. That’d show that no-talent uncle tom.
Zach Braff
I wasn’t getting obliterated, but I was getting a kick. I was very method on that. That’s why I’d have gone along with it [if Tom had hit her]. But Tom was like: ‘Oh my God – I hope you don’t murder me!’
Kierston Wareing
Tom’s great yellow bronze mask all draped upon an iron framework. An inhibited, nerve-drawn; dropped face – as if hung on a scaffold of heavy private brooding; and thought.
Virginia Woolf
I believe we can balance the scales if Tom Cruise would lower his quote by a mere $29 million… I assure you my salary would not make a difference. My annual salary is the budget for Altoids on one of Tom’s movies.
Alec Baldwin
I never tire of reading Tom Paine.
Abraham Lincoln
There’s a difference between those two [George Soroses and the Tom Steyers] and the Kochs that I think is important.
Jane Mayer
The left no longer stands for common sense, as it did in the days of Tom Paine.
Christopher Lasch
Audiences will get just as tired of people wrestling on a bed as they did of Tom Mix kissing his horse.
Mary Astor
Tom appeared on the sidewalk with a bucket of whitewash and a long-handled brush. He surveyed the fence, and all gladness left him and a deep melancholy settled down upon his spirit. Thirty yards of board fence nine feet high. Life to him seemed hollow, and existence but a burden.
Mark Twain
Hanks is a good man, and he produced the “John Adams” series as well. He does good work. But I’m more worried about a Tom Hanks when we’re at war against radical Islam than I am against a caricature like Sean Penn. He’s a completely marginalized soul.
Bill O’Reilly
My first writing jobs were writing Tom Arnold specials for HBO, so I love working there.
Judd Apatow
Homeland Security Chief Tom Ridge raised security alert to a code red. Apparently Howard Dean has escaped. Did you see Dean’s crazed speech the other night, yelling? I see why his wife won’t campaign with him. In fact, Dean has a new slogan: ‘Aaghhhh.’
Jay Leno
I wish I was as cocksure of anything as Tom Macaulay is of everything.
William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne
How I longed to see these things; how I longed to see the Liberty Bell and walk on the streets where Thomas Jefferson, Tom Paine and Benjamin Franklin had walked.
Burl Ives
If girls were going after me, I would not only admit it, but I would probably exaggerate about the swarming masses. I can flirt and have fun, but at the end of the day, I’m not Tom Cruise. Girls are not falling all over me.
Joshua Jackson
I think my manager of 30-some odd years now, Tom Hammond. He’s as fine a person as you could ever meet. And he’s had great theatrical taste and has influenced me that way.
Bernadette Peters
It’s like, once you’ve seen Tom Hanks win the Golden Globes, the Oscars, you’ve seen his wife, what kind of car he drives, when you watch his movies, you can’t fully get really lost in them.
Justin Theroux
Tom Cruise shouldn’t try to win Oscars. He should just smile and kick people in the face and leave the acting to Hugh Jackman. Why Hugh Jackman? I dunno; come up with your own example, smart-ass.
Doug Benson
‘Doc, I can’t stop singing the green green grass of home. ‘That sounds like Tom Jones syndrome’. ‘Is it common?’ ‘It’s not unusual.’
Tommy Cooper
People are like, “Why are you all dressed up? Did you dress up just for me?” I’m like “No, I dressed up because I’m an adult and I felt like putting on my suit.” But I love it. Tom Ford and Ralph Lauren are my two heroes of clothing designers.
Paul Feig
If you’re asking me where my heart and where I’m happy is, I love playing with Tom Brady. I love being coached by Bill Belichick.
Randy Moss
Now, after divorce with Tom Cruise, I can wear heels.
Nicole Kidman
We got on American Bandstand, where kids would dance to a record and then rate it. We called ourselves Tom and Jerry. I was Jerry.
Paul Simon
People tend to believe that I want to make soul music, which is not entirely untrue but, really, I want to be like the black Tom Waits – I don’t want to make one kind of sound.
Willis Earl Beal
My idea of managing is giving the ball to Tom Seaver and sitting down and watching him work.
Sparky Anderson
The Great Gatsby’ […] was my ‘Tom Sawyer’ when I was twelve [….]
J. D. Salinger
Today Homeland Security Chief Tom Ridge lowered the terror alert from orange to yellow. Does anybody need 16 miles of duct tape?
Craig Kilborn
I wrote for Roseanne. I wrote her stand-up act with her. I wrote with Tom Arnold. There was a period when I was working with them pretty steadily. But I would take brief gigs here and there.
Judd Apatow
Richard Burton was Welsh; Tom Jones is Welsh, and we Welshmen like to think of ourselves as heroes – on screen and off!
Timothy Dalton
I had met [Donald] Trump once before, when he testified before a committee that Tom Coburn – Senator Coburn – and I hosted, to deal with excessive expenditures to refurbish the UN building in New York.
Jeff Sessions
You mean the fact that Tom Arnold would spend more time with the hair and makeup people than I would?
Lisa Guerrero
I won’t rest until Tom Chaney’s barking in hell.
Kim Darby
In a small village near Calcutta, in 1998, a villager who could not speak English sang me What Did You Learn In School Today? in Bengali! Tom Paxton’s songs are reaching around the world more than he is, or any of us could have realized. Keep on, Tom!
Tom Paxton
Tom had traveled around the sun eleven times when the delivery truck brought his mother’s newest fridge, but a number doesn’t really describe his age.
N.D. Wilson
They swoon over Tom, who preens for them, bowing, which sets them to blushing and giggling. God help us all.
Libba Bray
I dress for the occasion. I like Tom Ford for more formal, especially his suits, and I wear a lot of Under Armour for my athletic gear. I also love Rag & Bone.
Tom Brady
Obviously, I’m kind of loyal to Tom [Welling] because that’s who I work with so to me he’s my Superman.
Erica Durance
At the drabber moments of my life (swilling some excrement from the steps, for instance, or rooting with a bent coat-hanger down a blocked sink) thoughts occur like ‘I bet Tom Stoppard doesn’t have to do this’ or There is no doubt David Hare would have deputed this to an underling.’
Alan Bennett
A Tom Ford three-piece makes you feel so confident, it’s bananas.
Dwyane Wade
I happen to be immature, undisciplined, and self-centered, pretty much a little boy in a man’s body, although I’d appreciate it if you didn’t quote me on that. -Bobby Tom
Susan Elizabeth Phillips
I am going to work with Tom Daschle. And I’ll work with the Republican leaders and the president to try and come up with something that we can all be proud of.
John Breaux
The fact is that I’m also friendly with Tom Coburn, one of the most conservative Republicans in the United States Senate, who, during his campaign, once said that it might be appropriate to apply the death penalty to those who carried out abortions.
Barack Obama
Amen, sister, … All apologies to Tom Cruise.
Libba Bray
My dear Tom, Delighted to get your letter. Do write again. This life is terrible and I don’t understand how it can be endured.
Samuel Beckett
One of the things that’s kind of persistent is that I am the model on the cover of Tom Waits’ album, Small Change.
Cassandra Peterson
Anyone who thinks it’s funny to name their network “Tom’sHugeEtc” is going to think it’s funny that one of his neighbors is also named Tom and is embarrassed by it.
Mallory Ortberg
I read a lot of graphic novels – some of my favorites graphic novelists or artists are Rebecca Kraatz, Gabrielle Bell, Graham Roumieu, Tom Gauld, and Renee French.
Matthea Harvey
I can’t do that wonderful thing that Tom Waits and Bob Dylan do – to do imagery. I’m not good at that. I just write from the heart.
Rod Stewart
What’s wrong? Has Francis been rude? Then you must try to overlook it. I know you wouldn’t think so, but he is thoroughly upset by Tom Erskine’s death; and when Francis is troubled he doesn’t show it, he just goes and makes life wretched for somebody.
Dorothy Dunnett
Tom Brady is good, real good…but he plays in same league as I do.
Cam Newton
A tom cat hijacked a plane, stuck a pistol into the pilot’s ribs and demanded: ‘Take me to the canaries’.
Bob Monkhouse
In the 1998 Oscars, I found myself in the bathroom in a stall, next to Tom Selleck. So I leaned over and I said ‘looks like we’re a couple of peeing Toms.’ His angry silence is something I’ll never forget.
Tom Hanks
Tom Regan’s now classic Case for Animal Rights blends careful argument with intense moral concern. For two decades, where Regan has been taken seriously, animals have been better off and people have become better persons. This new edition is a welcome sign of this influence continuing.
Holmes Rolston III
The ultimate freedom for creative groups is the freedom to experiment with new ideas. Some skeptics insist that innovation is expensive. In the long run, innovation is cheap. Mediocrity is expensive—and autonomy can be the antidote.”   TOM KELLEY General Manager, IDEO
Daniel H. Pink
You don’t need Tom Wolfe to tell you that the Buckhead section of Atlanta is the jewel of the city, an area of gracious homes, elegant hotels and shopping centers, as well as some of the best restaurants.
Florence Fabricant
Scientists are peeping toms at the keyhole of eternity.
Arthur Koestler
I suppose the latest thing is to sit back and let Mr. Nobody from Nowhere make love to your wife.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
When you’re a kid, Kermit is Tom Hanks. He’s Tom Hanks for kids or Jimmy Stewart for kids. He’s truly the every man.
Jason Segel
I talked with Tom Hanks. I saw that movie ‘Turner and Hooch’ at least 50 times. It took all my guts to go up to him. I went up to him, I was like, ‘Can I have a picture?’ We talked acting; he wanted to know what I was doing. We talked a little tennis. I mean, he knew all about myself and my sister.
Serena Williams
Who knows, he may grow up to be President someday, unless they hang him first!” Aunt Polly about Tom Sawyer
Mark Twain
Whenever I see Tom [ Cavanagh] – we’re good friends – we just mourn that we didn’t get a longer shot.
Eric McCormack
Tom Hyde, the tinker, standing on the gallows, was asked if he had anything to say. “Tell the tailors,” said he, “to remember to make a knot in their thread before they take the first stitch.” His companion’s prayer is forgotten.
Henry David Thoreau
I’m a fan of Tom’s of Maine natural oral care line for those very reasons; they deliver on both healthy and environmental goodness. The beauty of it is you’ll feel even more empowered knowing you’re doing something good for yourself and the environmental footprint of your beauty routine.
Sophie Heyman Uliano
Even the White House is weighing in on the deflate-gate scandal. Yesterday they encouraged Tom Brady to ‘be mindful of the way he serves as a role model.’ And then President Obama stuffed out his cigarette and went golfing at noon on a weekday.
Jimmy Fallon
If you ask people in England where does Tom Wright sit on the theological spectrum, they say, “Well he’s an evangelical of course,” as though, come on, get used to it.
N. T. Wright
My mum was never too keen on TV, so we kids all went to the library and got books out. Right from the start, I loved the works of Mark Twain. Every time I read about Tom Sawyer, I’d go out and do something low-level naughty, just like him.
John Grisham
We believe Skype in the Classroom will be a milestone in inspiring the next generation of social entrepreneurs and we can’t wait to connect students with TOMS partners.
Blake Mycoskie
The man that hails you Tom or Jack, and proves by thumps upon your back how he esteems your merit, is such a friend, that one had need be very much his friend indeed to pardon or to bear it.
William Cowper
On a good night, I get underwear, bras, and hotel-room keys thrown onstage… You start to think that you’re Tom Jones.
Keanu Reeves
I hadn’t read or heard a lot about [Tom] Wolfe until I read this script, and in that way I think it was really clever to write a piece about him instead of Max Perkins,[Ernest] Hemingway, [John] Fitzgerald, or others that people have strong opinions of already.
Jude Law
We know more about Tom [Cruise] and Katie [Holmes] than we do about global warming. We’re the most entertained, least informed people in the world.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
And to Tom Cruise, for if you had won this, your asking price would have gone down so fast. Do you have any idea what supporting actors get paid? We get only one trailer, a small one, in the back.
Michael Caine
Ah,” she cried, “you look so cool.” Their eyes met, and they stared together at each other, alone in space. With an effort she glanced down at the table. You always look so cool,” she repeated. She had told him that she loved him, and Tom Buchanan saw.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
I have never been able to understand the compelling phrase, ‘keeping up with the Joneses.’ It does not matter very much whether I keep up with Tom Jones or anybody else; what is important is to keep up with myself by making my today a little better than my yesterday.
Eknath Easwaran
All these rumors about [Tom Cruise] being gay. I don’t believe it. I don’t believe it for one minute. He hasn’t been to one of my shows.
Bette Midler
I don’t want to be quoted as ‘Tom Hiddleston, psychologist says…’ But there is a psychological aspect to being an actor. We are particular students of human nature – not every actor is, of course, but that’s what fascinates me about being an actor.
Tom Hiddleston
My real life’s not like the fantasy Tom Ford world – with naked girls pouring perfume everywhere. It’s more staying in and watching Friends on television.
Tom Ford
[Dalton] Trumbo wrote this incredible pamphlet, almost on the level of Tom Paine’s ‘Common Sense,’ called ‘The Time of the Toad.’ It’s an exquisitely written treatise regarding the black list era.
Jay Roach
Like Tom Dorrance said, ‘It boiled down to one thing: observe, remember, and compare.’ Do something, observe what you did, remember what you did, compare it to what you were doing before, and adjust.
Buck Brannaman
Tom DeLay himself has never been the issue. DeLay is a symptom of a larger disease?a sick Republican culture of corruption that touches everyone who took his dirty money, voted for his corrupt leadership, or sat silently while their party has sold our government to the highest bidder.
Howard Dean
Getting hurt and watching Tom Brady take over and beginning what’s been just a spectacular run of his, and to come back and play in the AFC Championship Game against the Steelers in Pittsburgh, and help us win that game, is a memory that stands out very clearly.
Drew Bledsoe
I wouldn’t trade my career with anybody’s. I’d trade a few movies with Tom Hanks – ‘Apollo 13 and ‘Forrest Gump’ – but other than that, I love my career.
John Travolta
I told Leonard, in the immortal words of Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible 2, ‘I’m going on vacation. If I tell you where I’m going, then it won’t be a vacation.’
Shaquille O’Neal
Public service announcement: In case of a terrorist attack, bottled water and duct tape are not going to do a damn thing. So do what Homeland Security Dir. Tom Ridge does: Get really drunk, and pick up a hooker.
David Letterman
Sometimes I feel like the Tom Hanks character in Big. But my life is not a movie. I never have to go back to Coney Island to find the fortune-teller machine so I have to grow up again.
Shaquille O’Neal
Weirdly, I was still trying to be the older brother, and trying to get him [Tom Berninger] to try to be more like me a little bit. Or not be more like me but… I was frustrated that he sometimes let things stop him in his life, and he let the wind get knocked out of his sails a few times.
Matt Berninger
Mark Twain didn’t psychoanalyze Huck Finn or Tom Sawyer. Dickens didn’t put Oliver Twist on the couch because he was hungry! Good copy comes out of people, Johnny, not out of a lot of explanatory medical terms.
Samuel Fuller
I’ve worked with Jack Nicholson and Robert De Niro and Tom Hanks. I’ve worked with some really good directors: Woody Allen, Paul Schrader… My God, I’ve really worked with a lot of people. But I’m intimidated by them, and I’m always thinking, “Oh, my God, he’s not going to like me, and I’m going to get fired.”
Kurt Fuller
I like a lot of Tom Cruise’s roles, he’s this action hero.
Scott Eastwood
We were only there for five days and during that time Tom was a bit annoyed that the French were more interested in me and my schoolgirl outfit than him and his long scarf.
Lalla Ward
I would love to work with Tom Hardy. Maybe do something crazy or dramatic that is different for me.
Ryan Guzman
My favorite politician was Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater, who reminded me of Tom Mix, and there wasn’t any way to explain that to anybody.
Bob Dylan
[ Tom Cruise] that kind of employee that’s first to arrive, last to leave.
Patrick Heusinger
Tom is the most eccentric person I have ever worked with. We get on very well and I am most impressed with how he can hold an audience in the palm of his hand.
Louise Jameson
All the kids are gone. It’s the greatest thing that has ever happened to Mr. and Mrs. Tom Hanks. I’ll tell you that right now. Second greatest after having the kids in the first place. When they go, holy smoke, it’s like you’re dating again. It’s fantastic. Also, we were doing an awful lot of work.
Tom Hanks
I think it may have been Tom Wolfe (if it wasn’t, my apologies, Tom, and my apologies to whoever it was) who said in print once, ‘David Carradine lives the life that Hunter Thompson only writes about.’
David Carradine
I want to be like Tom Cruise from ‘The Outsiders’ and go on and do amazing movies for a long time.
Ashton Kutcher
There are women named Faith, Hope, Joy, and Prudence. Why not Despair, Guilt, Rage, and Grief? It seems only right. ‘Tom, I’d like you to meet the girl of my dreams, Tragedy.’ These days, Trajedi.
George Carlin
Authors are sometimes like tomcats: They distrust all the other toms but they are kind to kittens
Malcolm Cowley
Gracie: You have an unusual house. Have you lived here long? Bobby Tom: A couple of years. I don’t much like it myself, but the architect is real proud of it. She calls it urban Stone Age with a Japanese Tahitian influence. I sort of just call it ugly.
Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Here’s Tom with the Weather.
Bill Hicks
I wrote ‘Tom Sawyer’ and ‘Huck Finn’ for adults exclusively, and it always distressed me when I find that boys and girls have been allowed access to them. The mind that becomes soiled in youth can never again be washed clean.
Mark Twain
I mean, you could have said Elvis Presley was new wave when it happened. I heard Willy DeVille and Tom Petty and to me they were new wave really because they were new.
George Thorogood
I always carry a Tom Ford lipstick and Tachta face blotters to get me through the day.
Rachel Zoe
What I’m worrying about is what Tom is going to say when he starts talking.” “Uncle Tom?” “I wish there was something else you could call him except ‘Uncle Tom,’ ” Aunt Dahlia said a little testily. “Every time you do it, I expect to see him turn black and start playing the banjo.
P. G. Wodehouse
One feature film that I am most proud of is Forrest Gump which starred Tom Hanks. Once you are called out to work in film, yes it is a small industry and your name gets around pretty fast.
Leland Sklar
Each man too is a tyrant in tendency, because he would impose his idea on others; and their trick is their natural defence. Jesuswould absorb the race; but Tom Paine or the coarsest blasphemer helps humanity by resisting this exuberance of power.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
With a novelist’s sense of drama and a historian’s understanding of the social forces that shape our lives, Tom Gjelten has captured vividly — through the chronicle of a powerful family’s fortunes — one of the great political dramas of our time.
Ronald Steel
There are no words to express the extraordinary strength and character of this breed of people we call American. They are the kind of men and women Tom Paine had in mind when he wrote, during the darkest days of the American Revolution, we have it in our power to begin the world over again.
Ronald Reagan
I think people somehow get a skewed view of Tom Brady. That he’s just a clean-cut guy that does everything right and never says a bad word to anyone. We know him to be otherwise.
Richard Sherman
You don’t know about me, without you have read a book by the name of ‘The Adventures of Tom Sawyer,’ but that ain’t no matter. That book was made by a Mr. Mark Twain, and he told the truth, mainly.
Mark Twain
I hope people will put aside Tom Ford the fashion designer and think about Tom Ford the filmmaker.
Tom Ford
The disruption caused by globalization and technology (what Tom Friedman calls hyperconnectedness) will be around for the rest of our professional lives.
Lewis Schiff
Who is Tom? There is no Tom. If we sell a pair of shoes today, we give away a pair of shoes tomorrow. Originally we thought of “Tomorrow’s Shoes,” but I could only fit “TOMS” on the label. I had no idea everybody would want to meet him. There is no Tom; it’s an idea for a better tomorrow.
Blake Mycoskie
When we get christened or married or die, we drift naturally in the direction of the church. And in moments of crisis, when our spiritual Tom-Tom is no longer telling us what to do, we find ourselves scrabbling at the vicarage door.
Tom Hollander
I’m a bad lover. Once I caught a peeping tom booing me.
Rodney Dangerfield
One of the nicest things about NBC is that Tom Brokaw is not Dan Rather.
Michael Gartner
I’m playing 10 feet from Mike Campbell every night. I look across the stage, there’s Howie. Tom’s in the middle and we’re playing all this stuff I love. It’s great.
Benmont Tench
Say I had been with a guy like Tom Brady, Peyton Manning or Drew Brees all of my career. Are you kidding me?
Terrell Owens
I don’t want to go to work and get into bed with someone else, not even Tom Cruise. It’s not like I enjoy it.
Cameron Diaz
[Reviewing a production of Uncle Tom’s Cabin] The dogs were poorly supported by the cast.
Don Herold
I saw a sneak preview of Jack Reacher and give two thumbs up to Tom Cruise. He did a great job with the role.
Michael Connelly
At some point in my career, I was thinking, “Why am I not a star? Why am I not Brad Pitt? Why am I not Tom Cruise?”
Patrick Fabian
There is no better leader in collegiate athletics than Tom Brady.
Lloyd Carr
Well, when you’ve had Tom Cruise play you, anything else is a comedown.
Leigh Steinberg
One cannot underestimate how widely admired Tom Daschle is in Washington for his integrity.
David Gergen
Tom Hanks, who starred in ‘The Da Vinci Code,’ turns out to be related to a number of the historic characters that feature in ‘The Da Vinci Code,’ including William the Conqueror and Shakespeare.
Steven Pinker
I get inspired when I look at Tom Lennon, who did Reno 911! for six seasons while writing huge movies and directing, and also doing other pilots; he did that FX pilot, the Star Trek thing.
Scott Aukerman
I happen to think nearly everybody – especially those one might find in the odd issue of ‘People’ magazine, including me – is frightfully boring, especially me. And Tom Cruise. Tom and I are alike in only this way.
Berkeley Breathed
Ground control to Major Tom.
David Bowie
I have no TV, thank God. I haven’t heard anything about Tom Cruise, except that he had a baby, I think.
Emmanuelle Beart
We all believe what we read. I read how Tom Cruise and I were two big egos holding up shooting. I know that isn’t true – but if I wasn’t making a movie with him and I just picked up the paper, I’d believe it. That’s interesting, isn’t it?
Dustin Hoffman
I’ve been fortunate to view the world as if Tom Cruise is constantly walking in front of me on his way across a tarmac before an aerial dogfight. I’m speaking cinematically here. The homoeroticism was an accident that I wont dismiss.
Jason Mraz
John Updike is always fun. And one of my former students, Tom Pynchon. And Harold Bloom, another former student.
M. H. Abrams
My name is “A Pimp named Slickback” Wait… A Pimp?? … Named Slickback. Yes, please say the whole thing if you would. Yes, that includs the “A Pimp Named” part. Yes Tom, everytime.
Katt Williams
I still get excited by working with big names. You have that initial moment of, ‘Oh my goodness, I’m going to work with Tom Cruise!’
Malin Akerman
We have two dogs, Mabel and Wolf, and three cats at home, Charlie, George and Chairman. We have two cats on our farm, Tom and Little Sister, two horses, and two mini horses, Hannah and Tricky. We also have two cows, Holy and Madonna. And those are only the animals we let sleep in our bed.
Ellen DeGeneres
I see now that this has been a story of the West, after all–Tom and Gatsby, Daisy and Jordan and I, were all Westerners, and perhaps we possessed some deficiency in common which made us subtly unadaptable to Eastern life.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
I don’t want to direct. I have no directing ambition whatsoever. And as long as I meet filmmakers like Tom Hooper, Stephen Frears, and others who allow that collaboration, I can’t see why I would ever want to direct.
Peter Morgan
A cartoon character isn’t a specific person. It isn’t Tom Cruise or George Clooney playing the part, it’s a character that could be you. It’s easier for you to get drawn into it in a special way.
Tomm Moore
I definitely want to do more movies, and I’m also a writer, so I have a few screenplays that I’m working on, one of them based off my one-woman show that I used to do in New York. Two of the screenplays I’ve written by myself, and then I’m also working on one with my writing partner, Tom Riley, who’s in London.
Eliza Coupe
I use to believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and Tom Cruise too.
Barbara Bretton
Magicians disappear all the time, but as soon as a regular person does it, everyone is all scared. “Tom’s gone!” “Is he a magician?” “No.” “Then let’s print up some flyers!”
Mitch Hedberg
We always thought the Tom Tom Club could change to anything, but it acquired this image, which was cartoon animation and this real light-hearted dance music.
Tina Weymouth
When it comes to federal elections law, Tom DeLay and his special-interest friends live by one set of rules, and everyone else lives by a very different set.
Rahm Emanuel
The Dain Curse [Tom Fink] was a great job. I was in New York, and I was young – I think I’m 28 years old in that – and I got to work with James Coburn and Jean Simmons and Jason Miller. Plus, it was a Dashiell Hammett story, and I had a great character. It was fantastic to shoot.
Brent Spiner
I used to pretend that I was Tom attacking Jerry, who was drawn on the ball
Monica Seles
Sometimes one sees people butter their slices of bread with long, slow, admiring strokes in the same way in which Tom Sawyer’s friends whitewashed the fence. Never butter an entire slice of bread at one time.
Mary Elizabeth Clark
Tom Ford just started at Gucci and was getting great notoriety – like Madonna wearing that head-to-toe velvet suit at the MTV awards. I remember it like it was yesterday.
Roopal Patel
There are more than enough people with serious mental issues who really do need professional help without all the other Toms, Dicks and Harriets rushing to the therapist’s couch.
Mariella Frostrup
Normally you’re 21 years old and you look like Tom Cruise and you do a couple underwear commercials first and then you’re a movie star. That didn’t happen for me. So it was all quite overwhelming.
Billy Bob Thornton
If I were a girl for a day I would try to sleep with Tom Kaulitz.
Tom Kaulitz
Back in 1998, he [Tom Hanks] gave the maximum amount of money that he could to Bill Clinton’s defense fund. This is a man who was against gay marriage, as was Hillary Clinton.
Bill O’Reilly
You fainted,’ Tom said. Reg coughed. No, I didn’t,’ he said. ‘Women faint. People afraid of needles faint. Men black out.
N.D. Wilson
They said that I had sold out and (am an) Uncle Tom. And I said well, they deserve to have that view. But I have my thoughts. And I think they’re race-hustling poverty pimps.
J. C. Watts
I studied Tom Cruise running in all the Mission Impossibles. I think he’s one of the best screen runners.
Ben Stiller
