Stage quotes by Robin Wasserman
#1. I try not to think too much about an audience when I'm writing the first draft of a book - at that stage, the prospect of anyone reading what I've written would be enough to scare me into setting my laptop on fire. #Quote by Robin Wasserman
Stage quotes by Vin Scully
#2. We survive our way through basketball hoping the # Lakers will survive and we hope for the # Kings and for the # Ducks and we want them all to succeed but if you are a true fan and especially if you are a # Dodgers fan deep down inside you are saying please get out of the way, get off the stage, here come the DODGERS! #Quote by Vin Scully
Stage quotes by Sue Halpern
#3. It was as if her mind were a theater where bad actors could be run off the stage by a pack of adorable, yelping dogs. #Quote by Sue Halpern
Stage quotes by Ben Jonson
#4. Soul of the age! The applause! delight! The wonder of our stage! #Quote by Ben Jonson
Stage quotes by Chris Lilley
#5. When I was in school, I was always writing scripts and dressing up as characters. I'd constantly be that guy who'd get up on stage. I used to write imaginary TV shows, like soap operas, for fun. #Quote by Chris Lilley
Stage quotes by Simon Sebag Montefiore
#6. Faced with Russian menace and Ottoman collapse, Britain and France threatened war. Nicholas stubbornly called their bluff because, he explained, he was "waging war for a solely Christian purpose, under the banner of the Holy Cross." On 28 March 1853, the French and British declared war on Russia. Even though most of the fighting was far away in the Crimea, this war placed Jerusalem at the centre of the world stage where she has remained ever since.f #Quote by Simon Sebag Montefiore
Stage quotes by Mike Nichols
#7. I had a high school girlfriend whose mother gave us theater tickets, so I saw the second night performance of 'A Streetcar Named Desire.' My girl and I could not get up during intermission, we were so stunned. To this day it's the only thing I've seen on stage that's 100 percent real and 100 percent poetic simultaneously. #Quote by Mike Nichols
Stage quotes by Kurt Cobain
#8. I'm all for stage diving, but just don't step on my pedals #Quote by Kurt Cobain
Stage quotes by Vir Das
#9. I am honestly very intimidated when I meet new people and they expect me to be the onscreen Vir. On stage, I say a lot of things I might never say in real life; I am never the life of the party. People are quite surprised to see that I am more of a quiet artiste off stage. #Quote by Vir Das
Stage quotes by Francois Hollande
#10. France wants Britain to remain in the E.U.; indeed, how can we imagine that friendly nation that is our ally and played a role on the international stage could be outside the E.U.? #Quote by Francois Hollande
Stage quotes by Orson Welles
#11. The two things you cannot do effectively on stage are pray and copulate. #Quote by Orson Welles
Stage quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#12. What is so rewarding about friendship?" my son asked, curling his upper lip into a sour expression. "Making friends takes too much time and effort, and for what?"

I sat on the edge of his bed, understanding how it might seem simpler to go at life solo.

"Friendship has unique rewards," I told him. "They can be unpredictable. For instance...." I couldn't help but pause to smile crookedly at an old memory that was dear to my heart. Then I shared with my son an unforgettable incident from my younger years.

"True story. When I was about your age, I decided to try out for a school play. Tryouts were to begin after the last class of the day, but first I had to run home to grab a couple props for the monologue I planned to perform during tryouts. Silly me, I had left them at the house that morning. Luckily, I only lived across a long expanse of grassy field that separated the school from the nearest neighborhood. Unluckily, it was raining and I didn't have an umbrella.

"Determined to get what I needed, I raced home, grabbed my props, and tore back across the field while my friend waited under the dry protection of the school's wooden eaves. She watched me run in the rain, gesturing for me to go faster while calling out to hurry up or we would be late.

"The rain was pouring by that time which was added reason for me to move fast. I didn't want to look like a wet rat on stage in front of dozens of fellow students. Don't ask #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Stage quotes by Albert Einstein
#13. Most people go on living their everyday life: half-frightened, half indifferent, they behold the ghostly tragic-comedy that is being performed on the international stage before the eyes and ears of the world. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Stage quotes by Glen David Gold
#14. Each piece of the set was on a winch and pulley, bag-dropped, counterbalanced by nests of fifty-pound bags of sand. The setup was called a "Fairbanks," for the reason that when a stagehand so wanted, he could stand upon a knot on the rope, untie as few or as many bags of sand as he wanted, and ride nearly to the rafters like Zorro as the scenery lowered.
There was no particular reason to ride that way, but because Carter allowed it, the team of men did so all night long, trading places at the top, jumping onto the ropes and riding back down later. With the mighty Egyptian set descending in its many pieces, the audience was deprived of a behind-the-scenes tableau of beauty: Carter's team swiftly riding ropes up to the catwalk and down to the stage again, simply because they could. #Quote by Glen David Gold
Stage quotes by Shelby Harris
#15. So the deeper stages of sleep are really those times of quiescence, you're really restoring your body and we have a few different stages of sleep. #Quote by Shelby Harris
Stage quotes by Henry A. Giroux
#16. We live in a time that demands a discourse of both critique and possibility, one that recognizes that without an informed citizenry, collective struggle, and viable social movements, democracy will slip out of our reach and we will arrive at a new stage of history marked by the birth of an authoritarianism that not only disdains all vestiges of democracy but is more than willing to relegate it to a distant memory. #Quote by Henry A. Giroux
Stage quotes by Alex Sheshunoff
#17. Midlife crises are the best-funded stage of rebellion, because, finally, the rebel himself can lavish the amount of money he feels befits the depth of his self-pity. #Quote by Alex Sheshunoff
Stage quotes by Jennifer Tipton
#18. I've often called the lighting for the stage the "music for the eye", because it has the same way of making an atmosphere, making a landscape, changing fluidly from one place to another without seeming effort. #Quote by Jennifer Tipton
Stage quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#19. Every stage of human life, except the last, is marked out by certain and defined limits; old age alone has no precise and determinate boundary. #Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Stage quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#20. Life is a dark stage on which you were born to shine. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Stage quotes by Amos Bronson Alcott
#21. A friendship formed in childhood, in youth,
by happy accident at any stage of rising manhood,
becomes the genius that rules the rest of life. #Quote by Amos Bronson Alcott
Stage quotes by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
#22. Unless an action is rightly thought out and its steps rightly planned, every stage of its performance will probably remain vague and therefore unsatisfactory for the doer and all those concerned. #Quote by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Stage quotes by Eartha Kitt
#23. This is where you see the truth of entertainment, because it is not edited. You see it on stage as it is happening. Even if we fall down or forget our words, it's a part of live entertainment. #Quote by Eartha Kitt
Stage quotes by Laurel Ulen Curtis
#24. If you asked me, denial was the best stage of grief. If prompted, the Wicked Queen's mirror would definitely say it was the fairest of them all. #Quote by Laurel Ulen Curtis
Stage quotes by Dick Dale
#25. Kids don't see me as an oldies person when I go out on stage. They see me as an energy force. #Quote by Dick Dale
Stage quotes by David Hedison
#26. My plan was I just knew, I think the first time I was in a high school play, and I liked the feeling of that. Getting on the stage and entertaining and audience. Eventually, I went to New York and studied my craft, and I was in school for two years in the same class with Joanne Woodward and Steve McQueen. #Quote by David Hedison
Stage quotes by Edward Bond
#27. Art is the close scrutiny of reality and therefore I put on the stage only those things that I know happen in our society. #Quote by Edward Bond
Stage quotes by Ron Rash
#28. On the last drafts, I focus on the words themselves, including the rub of vowels and consonants, stressed and unstressed syllables. Yet even at this stage I'm often surprised. A different ending or a new character shows up and I'm back to where I began, letting the story happen, just trying to stay out of the way. #Quote by Ron Rash
Stage quotes by Debasish Mridha
#29. Life is the most beautiful dance on the most beautiful stage we call Earth. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Stage quotes by Susan Anderson
#30. The recovery task for this stage is to take hold of yourself one moment at a time, to recognize that you are a separate person, a fully capable adult, responsible for your own self-care. It is no one else's responsibility to meet your emotional needs; only you can do that. Emotional self-reliance involves accepting the intense feelings of the experience, taking stock of your present reality, and assuring yourself that you will survive. #Quote by Susan Anderson
Stage quotes by Isao Takahata
#31. Like it or not, a caterpillar must first live as a chrysalis before becoming a butterfly. Maybe I remember those days because I am going through a chrysalis stage. #Quote by Isao Takahata
Stage quotes by Alan Shearer
#32. Management interests me at some stage in my life, I have always said that. When that will be I really couldn't tell you. #Quote by Alan Shearer
Stage quotes by Gian Kumar
#33. Creativity is not any accumulated knowledge, coming from past to the present. The stage of creation is a spontaneous flash of intelligence, Energy merging with mind, to create a new beginning. Creativity and meditation are similar, as both are expressions of something beyond mind. #Quote by Gian Kumar
Stage quotes by David McCullough
#34. I believe there is no one principle which predominates in human nature so much in every stage of life, from the cradle to the grave, in males and females, old and young, black and white, rich and poor, high and low, as this passion for superiority. #Quote by David McCullough
Stage quotes by Rosa Luxemburg
#35. The railway trains full with reservists are no longer accompanied by the loud acclamations of the young ladies; the soldiers no longer smile at the populace out of their carriage windows; instead they slink silently through the streets, their packs in their hands, while the public follows its daily preoccupations with dour faces. In the sober atmosphere of the morning after, another chorus takes the stage: the hoarse cries of the vultures and hyenas which appear on every battlefield: ten thousand tents guaranteed to specification! A hundred tons of bacon, cocoa, coffee substitute, instant delivery but cash only, hand grenades, tools, ammunition belts, marriage brokers for the widows of the fallen, agencies for government supply--only serious offers considered! The cannon fodder inflated with patriotism and carried off in August and September 1914 now rots in Belgium, in the Vosges, in the Masurian swamps, creating fertile plains of death on which profits can grow. Hurry, for the rich harvest must be gathered into the granaries--a thousand greedy hands stretch across the ocean to help. #Quote by Rosa Luxemburg
Stage quotes by Alan Rickman
#36. You know, London is so sprawling, and you can sometimes forget that anybody else is on a stage anywhere else. #Quote by Alan Rickman
Stage quotes by Paul Murray
#37. I'll saw my hands off before I appear on stage with you and your Orchestra of Gays!' Dennis bellows. 'Do you hear me? I'll saw my hands off! #Quote by Paul Murray
Stage quotes by Frederick Lenz
#38. The later stages of the enlightenment process are trickier, and it is really essential to have a teacher then. You need correction, direction, and most of all you need a master's auric empowerment. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Stage quotes by Jan-Philipp Sendker
#39. Death is not the end of life, but a stage thereof. #Quote by Jan-Philipp Sendker
Stage quotes by Daisaku Ikeda
#40. The willingness to challenge hardships taps the power within human beings to transform even a place of tragedy into a stage for fulfilling one's mission. #Quote by Daisaku Ikeda
Stage quotes by Min Zhou
#41. We have received a dog with serious eye problems and a skin disease in hopeless stage. The person who brought it here demanded we cure it for free and refused the idea of euthanasia to end its pain. #Quote by Min Zhou
Stage quotes by Julia Sweeney
#42. I was on stage and I was like I will pay someone to do my time, not only will I expect NOT to be paid, but I will pay someone if I can run off stage right now. It was so bad. #Quote by Julia Sweeney
Stage quotes by Bo Burnham
#43. Then the challenge is, once you left brain it and build it, then when you're on stage you have to know it so well that you can get lost in it. I don't want to be onstage looking like a robot, I want to be at the end of the day very emotional and what feels like someone being up there rather than reciting things. That's always the challenge, to analyze and then somehow lose yourself in something you absolutely know backwards and forwards. And nothing's going to surprise you, but you have to be surprised by it and let it surprise you. #Quote by Bo Burnham
Stage quotes by Richard C. Carrier
#44. ...the naive forms of Christian moral motivation - bare threats of hell and the bribery of heaven - stunt moral growth by ensuring believers remain emotional children, never achieving the cognitive moral development of adults. Psychologists have established that mature adults are moral not because of bare threats and bribes (that stage of moral development typifies children, not adults), but because they care about the effects their behavior has on themselves and others. #Quote by Richard C. Carrier
Stage quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#45. Even in civilized communities, the embryo man passes through the hunter stage of development. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Stage quotes by Kage Baker
#46. If you want to see what stage comedians did to get laffs a century ago, watch the 1910 'Wizard of Oz.' I hope you have a high tolerance for pratfalls. #Quote by Kage Baker
Stage quotes by Phillips Brooks
#47. Those who help a child help humanity with an immediateness which no other help given to human creature in any other stage of human life can possibly give again. #Quote by Phillips Brooks
Stage quotes by Joseph Campbell
#48. The LSD phenomenon, on the other hand, is - to me at least - more interesting. It is an intentionally achieved schizophrenia, with the expectation of a spontaneous remission - which, however, does not always follow. Yoga, too, is intentional schizophrenia: one breaks away from the world, plunging inward, and the ranges of vision experienced are in fact the same as those of a psychosis. But what, then, is the difference? What is the difference between a psychotic or LSD experience and a yogic, or a mystical? The plunges are all into the same deep inward sea; of that there can be no doubt. The symbolic figures encountered are in many instances identical (and I shall have something more to say about those in a moment). But there is an important difference. The difference - to put it sharply - is equivalent simply to that between a diver who can swim and one who cannot. The mystic, endowed with native talents for this sort of thing and following, stage by stage, the instruction of a master, enters the waters and finds he can swim; whereas the schizophrenic, unprepared, unguided, and ungifted, has fallen or has intentionally plunged, and is drowning. #Quote by Joseph Campbell
Stage quotes by Mick Ralphs
#49. Put me on stage and I'm happy. #Quote by Mick Ralphs
Stage quotes by Frank Iero
#50. I feel like you have to make art because you have to make it. But the end result of it- that last stage- you have to show it to somebody else to hopefully get a rise or reaction out of them- [to see] if it'll affect someone else. #Quote by Frank Iero
Stage quotes by Patrick Stewart
#51. At 12 years old in the dangerous world that I was in, with a very difficult home life, I found the stage was the safest place to be. It was predetermined and predictable - and furthermore you got to be someone else. All the problems only began when you left the building. #Quote by Patrick Stewart
Stage quotes by Bootsy Collins
#52. Recording wasn't as important to me as actually being to get on stage and act the fool. #Quote by Bootsy Collins
Stage quotes by Stephen Merchant
#53. You hear some people saying, 'I'm alive on stage; it's where I feel most complete ... ' I don't understand that at all; I find that weird and depressing. I don't dislike the audience; it's just when I'm up there, they're in the darkness. There's just a sound of laughing or not. They're not 'people,' they're this big organism. #Quote by Stephen Merchant
Stage quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#54. However much the plays and the masks on the world's stage may change it is always the same actors who appear. We sit together and talk and grow excited, and our eyes glitter and our voices grow shriller: just so did others sit and talk a thousand years ago: it was the same thing, and it was the same people: and it will be just so a thousand years hence. The contrivance which prevents us from perceiving this is time. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Stage quotes by Helen McCrory
#55. When I was 14, I told my mother I intended to be in the House of Commons in the morning, in court in the afternoon and on stage in the evening. She realised then a fantasist had been born. #Quote by Helen McCrory
Stage quotes by Alex Grey
#56. There is a need for individuals to find ways of transcending their limiting identities, of periodically committing egocide. The submission to God by following transformative spiritual practices can more safely engage the death-rebirth transcendence axis. Some cultures have elaborate and cathartic rites of passage for every stage of life. Our culture has not fostered safe death and rebirth rituals. So people create their own, consciously or unconsciously. #Quote by Alex Grey
Stage quotes by Chris Pine
#57. I think the great thing about the Jack Ryan films is that the plot and the story always take center stage. If you've done your job as the actor portraying Jack Ryan, you are present enough to make an impact, but you let the story shine. #Quote by Chris Pine
Stage quotes by Richard Dawkins
#58. We humans are an extremely important manifestation of the replication bomb, because it is through us - through our brains, our symbolic culture and our technology - that the explosion may proceed to the next stage and reverberate through deep space. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Stage quotes by Muhtar Kent
#59. I've always believed in the importance of education and continuing to learn throughout every stage of life. #Quote by Muhtar Kent
Stage quotes by Rufus Sewell
#60. I've discovered that I've never had much respect for money, and that has meant that money has ended up ruling me a little bit more than it should have. So I'm trying to learn - at this late stage in life! - to actually control that. #Quote by Rufus Sewell
Stage quotes by Susan Ee
#61. I kick him in the face point blank with my high heel.
He wasn't expecting that.
The Angel flies back off the stage.
"It really is you,"says Raffe. #Quote by Susan Ee
Stage quotes by Adolph Green
#62. We've managed to keep a spirit of fun, I guess, of urban satire and finding new and odd interesting angles to the ways of life to put on the stage. #Quote by Adolph Green
Stage quotes by Ethan Hawke
#63. For me, the real goal is to integrate. The thing that I'm most happy with is the fact that I've been able to keep doing all of it - to keep writing, and to keep acting in movies, and to keep acting on the stage, to keep directing plays. I find that they feed each other, and that I learn about acting from directing and I learn about writing from acting. #Quote by Ethan Hawke
Stage quotes by Andy Serkis
#64. When I first did 'The Lord of the Rings,' I was acting on the set with the other actors, but then I had to go back and repeat the process on my own to do the physical capture on a motion capture stage. #Quote by Andy Serkis
Stage quotes by Andie MacDowell
#65. I'm in an unusual stage right now, because I haven't dated in so long. The sense of isolation turns it all into a bigger deal. Just taking the risk of opening that door is really hard for me right now. #Quote by Andie MacDowell
Stage quotes by Christopher Cross
#66. I'm now wearing suits on stage, so I've kinda stepped up my game as far as image. Which I have to admit is kind of a pain the butt, but it's fun. It gives you a certain amount of confidence to walk on stage and look nice, but I can't say that I'm totally buying into the whole image factor. #Quote by Christopher Cross
Stage quotes by Jimmy Tudeski
#67. How comes when a man likes an attractive female, is he helping to exploit women around the world, yet the moment he doesn't fancy the female in question, he only hates on her because she's empowering women? Seriously, I don't get it - Rihanna and Nicki do exactly the same thing as far as I can see. They both sing, dance and gyrate their sexy stuff on stage, yet one empowers women, the other is being exploited, depending on which one I fancy the most at the point of being asked the sodding question. How the fuck does any of this make sense? #Quote by Jimmy Tudeski
Stage quotes by Ivan Chtcheglov
#68. We are bored in the city, there is no longer any Temple of the Sun. Between the legs of the women walking by, the dadaists imagined a monkey wrench and the surrealists a crystal cup. That's lost. We know how to read every promise in faces-the latest stage of morphology. The poetry of the billboards lasted twenty years. We are bored in the city, we really have to strain to still discover mysteries on the sidewalk billboards, the latest state of humor and poetry. #Quote by Ivan Chtcheglov
Stage quotes by Nick Carter
#69. I'm most excited to see how I've grown as a performer. After Dancing With the Stars I really was able to evolve in a lot of ways and I'm excited to put that to use on stage. #Quote by Nick Carter
Stage quotes by Ian McEwan
#70. Blind luck, to arrive in the world with your properly formed parts in the right place, to be born to parents who were loving, not cruel, or to escape, by geographical or social accident, war or poverty. And therefore to find it so much easier to be virtuous. For a while, the case had left her numb, caring less, feeling less, going about her business, telling no one. But she became squeamish about bodies, barely able to look at her own or Jack's without feeling repelled. How was she to talk about this? Hardly plausible, to have told him that at this stage of a legal career, this one case among so many others, its sadness, its visceral #Quote by Ian McEwan
Stage quotes by Rachel Held Evans
#71. Psychologists say the best way to handle children at this stage of development is not to answer their questions directly but instead to tell them a story. As pediatrician Alan Greene explained, "After conversing with thousands of children, I've decided that what they really mean is, 'That's interesting to me. Let's talk about that together. Tell me more, please?' Questions are a child's way of expressing love and trust. They are a child's way of starting a conversation. So instead of simply insisting over and over again that the object of my son's attention is, in fact, an elephant, I might tell him about how, in India, elephants are symbols of good luck, or about how some say elephants have the best memories of all the animals. I might tell him about the time I saw an elephant spin a basketball on the tip of his trunk, or about how once there was an elephant named Horton who heard a Who. I might tell him that once upon a time, there was an elephant and four blind men; each man felt a different part of the elephant's body: the ears, the tail, the side, and the tusk . . . #Quote by Rachel Held Evans
Stage quotes by Dita Von Teese
#72. I prefer the competitive atmosphere of a classroom setting, like yoga or Pilates. That keeps me going. Although performing on stage is great exercise! #Quote by Dita Von Teese
Stage quotes by Yukio Mishima
#73. The period of childhood is a stage on which time and space become entangled. #Quote by Yukio Mishima
Stage quotes by Samuel Marquis
#74. The crowd roared as the man took the stage. Even through the glass, Skyler could hear the sound #Quote by Samuel Marquis
Stage quotes by Yamada Nanpei
#75. When I was up on stage, Hal-san pointed toward where you were seated. Hal-san knew the general area where you where seated but he said he couldn't find you because there were too many people. But I found you and I saw only you because you were beaming bright like a spotlight was shining upon you. That's how you appeared to me. #Quote by Yamada Nanpei
Stage quotes by Michio Kaku
#76. We have learned more about the brain in the last fifteen years than in all prior human history, and the mind, once considered out of reach, is finally assuming center stage. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Stage quotes by Matt Taibbi
#77. Greenspan's eventual explanation for the growing gap between stock prices and actual productivity was that, fortuitously, the laws of nature had changed
humanity had reached a happy stage of history where bullshit could be used as rocket fuel. #Quote by Matt Taibbi
Stage quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#78. In the usual progress of things, the necessities of a nation in every stage of its existence will be found at least equal to its resources. #Quote by Alexander Hamilton
Stage quotes by Rani Mukerji
#79. It's not humanly possible for anyone not to go through changes. Change is a constant in everyone's life, even in mine. I have enjoyed the change at every stage of my life. #Quote by Rani Mukerji
Stage quotes by David Sedaris
#80. The difference between writing where you know where to draw the line and writing where you're being way too mean is whether you can tell that the writer is not talking to family or friends anymore. Generally, if you say something bad about somebody on stage, you need to say two bad things about yourself. A lot of times, I think I'm the worst person in the room. #Quote by David Sedaris
Stage quotes by Jason Donnelly
#81. We're in the "I'm-still-comfortable-fucking-you" stage of our break-up. #Quote by Jason Donnelly
Stage quotes by Albert Camus
#82. And here are trees and I know their gnarled surface, water and I feel its taste. These scents of grass and stars at night, certain evenings when the heart relaxes-how shall I negate this world whose power and strength I feel? Yet all the knowledge on earth will give me nothing to assure me that this world is mine. You describe it to me and you teach me to classify it. You enumerate its laws and in my thirst for knowledge I admit that they are true. You take apart its mechanism and my hope increases. At the final stage you teach me that this wondrous and multicolored universe can be reduced to the atom and that the atom itself can be reduced to the electron. All this is good and I wait for you to continue. But you tell me of an invisible planetary system in which electrons gravitate around a nucleus. You explain this world to me with an image. I realize then that you have been reduced to poetry: I shall never know. #Quote by Albert Camus
Stage quotes by Mortimer J. Adler
#83. The first stage of elementary reading - reading readiness - corresponds to pre-school and kindergarten experiences. #Quote by Mortimer J. Adler
Stage quotes by Frances E. Willard
#84. In externals we advance with lightening express speed, in modes of thought and sympathy we lumber on in stage-coach fashion. #Quote by Frances E. Willard
Stage quotes by J.J. Abrams
#85. Directing's the best part. Whenever I've directed something, there's this feeling of demand and focus that I like. And secondly, it means that you've gotten through all the writing stuff, and the producing stuff, and casting, and prep, and all those stages that are seemingly endless. So directing is sort of the reward for all the work you put in before. And then there's the editing, which is another amazing stage of the process. It's incredible the moments you can create. #Quote by J.J. Abrams
Stage quotes by Cheyenne Kimball
#86. Even though I am going to miss out on my prom or I am going to miss out on walking across stage to accept my diploma, that's OK to me because I know I will have other perks in life. #Quote by Cheyenne Kimball
Stage quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#87. In one experiment, for example, Latane and Darley
had a student alone in a room stage an epileptic fit. When
there was just one person nest door, listening, that person
rushed to the student's aid 85 percent of the time. But
when subjects thought that there were four others also
overhearing the seizure, they came to the student's aid only
31 percent of the time. In another experiment, people who
saw smoke seeping out from under a doorway would report
it 75 percent of the time when they were on their own, but
the incident would be reported only 38 percent of the time
when they were in a group. When people are in a group, in
other words, responsibility for acting is diffused. They
assume that someone else will make the call, or they assume
that because no one else is acting, the apparent problem -
the seizure-like sounds from the other room, the smoke
from the door - isn't really a problem #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Stage quotes by Lindy West
#88. Art isn't indiscriminate shit-flinging. It's pure communication, crafted with intention and care. Every comedian on every stage is saying what he's saying on purpose. So shouldn't we be welcome to examine that purpose, contextualize it within our culture at large, and critique what we find? The #Quote by Lindy West
Stage quotes by Edmund White
#89. Do we regard language as more public, more ceremonial, than thought? Just as family men condemn the profanity on the stage that they use constantly in conversation, in the same way we may look to written language as an idealization rather than a reflection of ourselves. #Quote by Edmund White
Stage quotes by Haley Reinhart
#90. I believe a great performer is someone who sounds just as great live as they do in the studio and vice versa. They should know how to work the stage. #Quote by Haley Reinhart
Stage quotes by Wendy Mulford
#91. In my view
just
when you think you have it
all hanging clear
enter
a blue ballon off-stage left

Stage quotes by Rick Perlstein
#92. One of the ladies asked about that awful Bobby Kennedy, and Goldwater responded by speaking about the attorney general with touching affection. (Mary) McGrory recalled how Jack Kennedy behaved at a similar stage in his campaign: spouting statistics, attacking carefully chosen enemies and puffing all the right friends, quoting dead Greeks, never cracking a joke lest he remind the voters how young he was. #Quote by Rick Perlstein
Stage quotes by Halford Mackinder
#93. For the first time we can perceive something of the real proportion of features and events on the stage of the whole world, and may seek a formula which shall express certain aspects, at any rate, of geographical causation in universal history. #Quote by Halford Mackinder
Stage quotes by Cory Booker
#94. 'Hamilton' is one of the best things I've ever seen on a stage, and for a guy who loves American history, hip-hop and theater, it was pure bliss. #Quote by Cory Booker
Stage quotes by David Steindl-Rast
#95. Among the many things that profoundly impress me about the Dalai Lama, quite high up on the list is his ability to say "I don't know". I've often wished that other people in prominent positions wouldn't feel the compulsion to have an answer for everything and would feel equally free to say "I don't know." It's a sign of wisdom to know that you don't know and a sign of stupidity to think that you know everything. I admire it enormously in him, and wonder why so few people in leading positions reach that stage. #Quote by David Steindl-Rast
Stage quotes by Gregory Hines
#96. One of the things about working on stage - actually, about working in show business, that is - is that it's such a collaborative effort. I suppose that everything in life is - every endeavor where people are able to be successful. #Quote by Gregory Hines
Stage quotes by Hegel Georg Wilhelm Friedric 1770-1831
#97. maternal love, the most successful object of the religious imagination of romantic art. For the most part real and human, it is yet entirely spiritual, without the interest and exigency of desire, not sensuous and yet present: absolutely satisfied and blissful spiritual depth. It is a love without craving, but it is not friendship; for be friendship never so rich in emotion, it yet demands a content, something essential, as a mutual end and aim. Whereas, without any reciprocity of aim and interests, maternal love has an immediate support in the natural bond of connection. But in this instance the mother's love is not at all restricted to the natural side. In the child which she conceived and then bore in travail, Mary has the complete knowledge and feeling of herself; and the same child, blood of her blood, stands all the same high above her, and nevertheless this higher being belongs to her and is the object in which she forgets and maintains herself. The natural depth of feeling in the mother's love is altogether spiritualized; it has the Divine as its proper content, but this spirituality remains lowly and unaware, marvellously penetrated by natural oneness and human feeling. It is the blissful maternal love, the love of the one mother alone who was the first recipient of this joy. Of course this love too is not without grief, but the grief is only the sorrow of loss, lamentation for her suffering, dying, and dead son, and does not, as we shall see at a later stage,[9] res #Quote by Hegel Georg Wilhelm Friedric 1770-1831
Stage quotes by Randeep Hooda
#98. During my theatre days, I was more comfortable doing comedy. It's such an irony. I have always played a buffoon on stage, and yet I don't have any comic role to my credit. #Quote by Randeep Hooda
Stage quotes by Grete Waitz
#99. Everyone wins the marathon. We all have the same feeling at the start-nervous, anxious, excited. It is a broader, richer, and even with twenty-seven thousand people-more intimate experience than I found when racing in track. New York is the marathon that all the biggest stars want to win, but has also been the stage for an array of human stories more vast than any other sporting event. #Quote by Grete Waitz
Stage quotes by Alex Turner
#100. I'm in a difficult position in the sense that, preposterous as this might sound, I don't like being the centre of attention. I get up on stage every night and play songs, but I almost feel the songs are the centre of attention. I don't like opening my birthday presents in front of people, either. #Quote by Alex Turner
Stage quotes by William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin
#101. When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meager and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarely, in your thoughts advanced to the stage of science. #Quote by William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin
Stage quotes by Paul Broun
#102. If passed by the U.N. and ratified by the U.S. Senate, the U.N. Small Arms Treaty would almost certainly force the United States to ... create an international gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun confiscation. #Quote by Paul Broun
Stage quotes by Herman Melville
#103. Passion, and passion in its profoundest, is not a thing demanding a palatial stage whereon to play its part. Down among the groundlings, among the beggars and rakers of the garbage, profound passion is enacted. And the circumstances that provoke it, however trivial or mean, are no measure of its power. In the present instance the stage is a scrubbed gun deck, and one of the external provocations a man-of-war's-man's spilled soup. #Quote by Herman Melville
Stage quotes by John Ridley
#104. As an ex-stand up, I can tell you that a comedy club isn't a place you go looking to get the abuse you just can't seem to find in daily life. The stage is a performer's domain. You protect that domain. You are not on stage to take what's given just 'cause you're getting paid. If you are attacked, you retaliate. #Quote by John Ridley
Stage quotes by Grace Jones
#105. I don't collaborate. You're born alone, you die alone, you get on stage alone. #Quote by Grace Jones
Stage quotes by John Adams
#106. Upon common theaters, indeed, the applause of the audience is of more importance to the actors than their own aprobation. But upon the stage of life, while concience claps, let the world hiss! On the contrary if concience disapproves, the loudest applauses of the world are of little value. #Quote by John Adams
Stage quotes by Cecil Beaton
#107. I have the worst ear for criticism; even when I have created a stage set I like, I always hear the woman in the back of the dress circle who says she doesn't like blue. #Quote by Cecil Beaton
Stage quotes by Buddy Hackett
#108. A comic, you have to be looking down at him. My favorite rooms, the audience is above the stage, stadium-style. #Quote by Buddy Hackett
Stage quotes by Kenneth Grahame
#109. The pageant of the river bank had marched steadily along, unfolding itself in scene-pictures that succeeded itself in stately procession.

Purple loosestrife arrived early, shaking luxuriant locks along the edge of the mirror whence its own face laughed back at it. Willow-herb, tender and wistful, like a pink sunset-cloud was not slow to follow. Comfrey, the purple hand-in-hand with the white, crept forth to take its place in the line; and at last one morning the diffident and delaying dog-rose stepped delicately on the stage, and one knew, as if string music has announced it in stately chords that strayed into a gavotte, that June at last was here.

One member of the company was still awaited; the shepherd-boy for the nymphs to woo, the knight for whom the ladies waited at the window, the prince that was to kiss the sleeping summer back to life and love. But when meadow-sweet, debonair and odorous in amber jerkin, moved graciously to his place in the group, then the play was ready to begin. #Quote by Kenneth Grahame
Stage quotes by Olivier Magny
#110. Just like literature, wine takes time to learn. Before having access to the emotion of a stunning poem or to the vigor of a captivating novel, we all had to go through a long initiation. First, we need to learn the alphabet, the sound of each letter. In wine, that would be learning about the grapes and their characteristics. Then, once we master our letters, we need to learn the arrangements of letters, the pronunciation, the grammar, the structure of sentences. Now we can read. In wine, that would be the stage when we start noticing differences between two reds. You no longer drink wine: you start drinking this wine. #Quote by Olivier Magny
Stage quotes by Emma Stone
#111. The last thing in the world my parents would want to do is get on a stage or do a movie. They would probably rather die. But they let me be who I was, and they supported me. #Quote by Emma Stone

Stage quotes by Robert Pinsky
#113. A reflection on Robert Lowell


Robert Lowell knew I was not one of his devotees. I attended his famous "office hours" salon only a few times. Life Studies was not a book of central importance for me, though I respected it. I admired his writing, but not the way many of my Boston friends did. Among poets in his generation, poems by Elizabeth Bishop, Alan Dugan, and Allen Ginsberg meant more to me than Lowell's. I think he probably sensed some of that.

To his credit, Lowell nevertheless was generous to me (as he was to many other young poets) just the same. In that generosity, and a kind of open, omnivorous curiosity, he was different from my dear teacher at Stanford, Yvor Winters. Like Lowell, Winters attracted followers - but Lowell seemed almost dismayed or a little bewildered by imitators; Winters seemed to want disciples: "Wintersians," they were called.

A few years before I met Lowell, when I was still in California, I read his review of Winters's Selected Poems. Lowell wrote that, for him, Winters's poetry passed A. E. Housman's test: he felt that if he recited it while he was shaving, he would cut himself. One thing Lowell and Winters shared, that I still revere in both of them, was a fiery devotion to the vocal essence of poetry: the work and interplay of sentences and lines, rhythm and pitch. The poetry in the sounds of the poetry, in a reader's voice: neither page nor stage.

Winters criticizing the violence of Lowell's #Quote by Robert Pinsky
Stage quotes by Robert H. Schuller
#114. The classical error of historical Christianity is that we have never started with the value of the person. Rather, we have started from the 'unworthiness of the sinner,' and that starting point has set the stage for the glorification of human shame in Christian theology. #Quote by Robert H. Schuller
Stage quotes by Olaf Stapledon
#115. The truth of the matter was something much more subtle and tremendous than any plain physical miracle could ever be. But never mind that. The important thing was that, when I did see the stars (riotously darting in all directions according to the caprice of their own wild natures, yet in every movement confirming the law), the whole tangled horror that had tormented me finally presented itself to me in its truth and beautiful shape. And I knew that the first, blind stage of my childhood had ended. #Quote by Olaf Stapledon
Stage quotes by Alice Eve
#116. In film, the camera can get an array of shots so the audience can see the emotion the character is giving off. Using close-ups on the character's face really helps get the message across. On stage, you can't do that. But the stage has that live feeling that you can't get anywhere else because the audience is right there. #Quote by Alice Eve
Stage quotes by Neal Cassady
#117. Like here it was that I entered that stage when a child overcomes naivite enough to realize an adult's emotional reaction as somethimes freakish for its inconsistencies, so can, on his own reasoning canvas, paint those early pale colors of judgement, resulting from initial moments of ability to critically examine life's perplexities, in tentative little brain-engine stirrings, before they faded to quickly join that train of remembered experience carrying signals indicating existence which itself far outweighs traction effort by thinking's soon slipping drivers to effectively resist any slack-action advantage, for starting so necessitates continual cuts on the hauler - performed as if governed lifelong by the tagwork of a student-green foreman who, crushed under on rushing time always building against his excessive load of emotional contents, is forever a lost ball in the high weeds of personal developments - until, with ever changing emphasis through a whole series of grades of consciousness (leading up from root-beginnings of obscure childish inconscious soul within a world), early lack - for what child sustains logic? - reaches a point of late fossilization, resultant of repeated wrong moves in endless switching of dark significances crammed inside the cranium, where, through such hindering habits, there no longer is the flexibility for thought transfer and unloading of dead freight that a standard gauge would afford and thus, as Faustian Destiny dictates, is an inept mink, #Quote by Neal Cassady
Stage quotes by Daphne Du Maurier
#118. I feel it's all wrong to be nervous," said Maria. "I feel it's lack of confidence. One ought to go right ahead, never minding."
"Some people do," he said, "but they're the duds. They are the ones that win prizes at school, and you never hear of them again. Go on. Be nervous. Be ill. Be sick down the lavatory pan. It's part of your life from now on. You've got to go through with it. Nothing's worth while if you don't fight for it first, if you haven't a pain in your belly beforehand. #Quote by Daphne Du Maurier
Stage quotes by Bob Marley
#119. I have got a running stream of love you see. So no matter what stages.. they put us through, we'll never be blue. #Quote by Bob Marley
Stage quotes by China Anne McClain
#120. Music and dance influence my style in a lot of ways. Sometimes I go off to work dressed up like I'm going to hit the stage and perform. #Quote by China Anne McClain
Stage quotes by Sam Worthington
#121. Any acting is a stretch of the imagination. That's your job. Acting is truth in imaginary circumstances. Acting with green screen or a motion capture stage, you're striving for absolute truth in absolutely imaginary circumstances. #Quote by Sam Worthington
Stage quotes by Howard Shore
#122. It is very gratifying to see the music from 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy find a new life on the concert stage as it is performed by different orchestras and choruses throughout the world. #Quote by Howard Shore
Stage quotes by Suzanne Farrell
#123. That the work involved, the willingness to take chances, the commitment, the opportunity to get on stage and make people happy, was more important than becoming famous, or even what I was dancing. #Quote by Suzanne Farrell
Stage quotes by Margaret Mahy
#124. At this stage I am not involved with young adults as closely as many other writers. My children are grown up and my grandchildren are still quite young. #Quote by Margaret Mahy
Stage quotes by Mark McGrath
#125. You might be feeling sick or a little down, but the second you hit the stage and hear the crowd, you're ready to perform. That's what a true performer is. #Quote by Mark McGrath
Stage quotes by Lynn Thomson
#126. I was conscious of that moment of stepping into the woods and leaving everything else behind. That one instant when all the sounds of people, of traffic, of doors opening and closing, were suddenly gone, swallowed up by trees and ferns. It was like a curtain falling on a stage, and I waited for that moment every time. My heart opened just a little bit wider. #Quote by Lynn Thomson
Stage quotes by Lorrie Moore
#127. Her body was a mix of thin and plump, her skin lined and unlined, in that rounding-the-corner-to-fifty way. Age and youth, he chanted silently, youth and age, sing their songs on the very same stage. #Quote by Lorrie Moore
Stage quotes by Loretta Lynch
#128. We are all just here for a time-whether in this building or even on this earth. But the values we hold dear will live on long after we have left this stage. Our responsibility, while we are here, is to breathe life into them; to imbue them with the strength of our convictions and the weight of our efforts. #Quote by Loretta Lynch
Stage quotes by Mike Tyson
#129. On stage it's just a wild setting - we have a big screen - hecklers, I'm fighting. It's entertainment, but I want to pierce [the audience's] souls and have them think about what I have to say. #Quote by Mike Tyson
Stage quotes by Maria Montessori
#130. With younger children the greatest reward is to be able to pass on to a new stage in each subject. It is a punishment to a young child not to be allowed to use the apparatus but to sit still and do nothing. #Quote by Maria Montessori
Stage quotes by Freddie Mercury
#131. Jimi Hendrix is very important. He's my idol. He sort of epitomizes, from his presentation on stage, the whole works of a rock star. There's no way you can compare him. You either have the magic or you don't. There's no way you can work up to it. There's nobody who can take his place. #Quote by Freddie Mercury
Stage quotes by Israel Horovitz
#132. Plays are literature: the word, the idea. Film is much more like the form in which we dream - in action and images (Television is furniture). I think a great play can only be a play. It fits the stage better than it fits the screen. Some stories insist on being film, can't be contained on stage. In the end, all writing serves to answer the same question: Why are we alive? And the form the question takes - play, film, novel - is dictated, I suppose, by whether its story is driven by character or place. #Quote by Israel Horovitz
Stage quotes by Matthew Lillard
#133. The stage is a training ground and it's where you learn what's funny and what's successful. #Quote by Matthew Lillard
Stage quotes by Johnathan Mun
#134. The strategic optionalities may include, among other things, the option to expand, contract, abandon, switch, choose, and so forth. Based on the identification of strategic optionalities that exist for each project or at each stage of the project, the analyst can then choose from a list of options to analyze in more detail. #Quote by Johnathan Mun
Stage quotes by Louis Menand
#135. I think at a place like Harvard, our experience, I was involved with, at various stages, in trying to implement a new general education curriculum, our experience was that Harvard's all about specialization, that's not just true of the professori, it's also true of a lot of the undergraduates, too, and they come, they kind of know what they want to do, they select it because they have a strong aptitude for something in particular. #Quote by Louis Menand
Stage quotes by Mike Love
#136. I love playing the Hard Rocks; they've got a great stage, great lighting, great sound, and not so humongous; its more intimate, so we love playing theaters and clubs where the audience has a really good chance to see and hear the group and where the acoustics are good. I like it when we can hear what we're doing. #Quote by Mike Love

Stage quotes by John Gardner
#140. Don't be fooled by clever hands, sir" the Sunlight Man said. He'd be lying with the back of his head on his hands, as he always lay. "Entertainment's all very well, but the world is serious. It's exceedingly amusing, when you think about it: nothing in life is as startling or shocking or mysterious as a good magician's trick. That's what makes stagecraft deadly. Listen closely, friend. You see great marvels performed on the stage - the lady sawed in half, the fat man supported by empty air, the Hindu vanishing with the folding of a cloth - and the subtlest of poisons drifts into your brain: you think the earth dead because the sky is full of spirits, you think the hall drab because the stage is adazzle with dimestore gilt. So King Lear rages, and the audience grows meek, and tomorrow, in the gray of old groceries, the housewife will weep for Cordelia and despair for herself. They weren't fools, those old sages who called all art the Devil's work. It eats the soul. #Quote by John Gardner
Stage quotes by David Levithan
#141. Along the way, they didn't say much, but their relationship has reached that stage where silence is comfortable, not threatening. Silence only harms when there are things that aren't being said, or when there's the fear that the well is empty and there's nothing left to say. Neither is the case here. They still have plenty to say to each other, just not anything right now. #Quote by David Levithan
Stage quotes by Kim Hyo-yeon
#142. It doesn't matter where I stand; whether at the front or at the back, in the middle or at the side. As long as I can get on stage and do what I love, that's enough for me. #Quote by Kim Hyo-yeon
Stage quotes by Joan Cusack
#143. Because I don't think it's very healthy to hold people to idealized views. I think that's a certain stage in life, something kids do. You have to go through that idealistic phase with your parents, but at a certain point, you need to see people as just people. #Quote by Joan Cusack
Stage quotes by Harry Connick, Jr.
#144. When I'm acting, I'm in a different place, singing is the last thing on my mind, and when I'm on stage, there's no acting at all involved, not even presentation, it's just who I am. #Quote by Harry Connick, Jr.
Stage quotes by Robert Musil
#145. In earlier times, one had an easier conscience about being a person than one does today. People were like cornstalks in a field, probably more violently tossed back and forth by God, hail, fire, pestilence, and war than they are today, but as a whole, as a city, a region, a field, and as to what personal movement was left to the individual stalk – all this was clearly defined and could be answered for. But today responsibility's center of gravity is not in people but in circumstances. Have we not noticed that experiences have made themselves independent of people? They have gone on the stage, into books, into the reports of research institutes and explorers, into ideological or religious communities, which foster certain kinds of experience at the expense of others as if they are conducting a kind of social experiment, and insofar as experiences are not actually being developed, they are simply left dangling in the air. Who can say nowadays that his anger is really his own anger when so many people talk about it and claim to know more about it than he does? A world of qualities without a man has arisen, of experiences without the person who experiences them, and it almost looks as though ideally private experience is a thing of the past, and that the friendly burden of personal responsibility is to dissolve into a system of formulas of possible meanings. Probably the dissolution of the anthropocentric point of view, which for such a long time considered man to be at the cente #Quote by Robert Musil
Stage quotes by Joe Slovo
#146. No movement finding itself in this stage of struggle can operate by getting authority from the leading body of the political organs for even minor action that is taken and we don't even know in the case of the actions which have publicize whether they are in fact our people. #Quote by Joe Slovo
Stage quotes by Ajit Harsinghani
#147. While American roads offer predictable safety, Indian roads compensate by providing unending entertainment, and even some opportunities for self growth. An Indian road is a stage where Life seems to be unabashedly living itself out. #Quote by Ajit Harsinghani
Stage quotes by Paul Eenhoorn
#148. I did some stage when I was a kid, around 16 or so. I was living in Melbourne and had a band. I was quite young. We weren't very good. Then I found a band in Perth. We played around for three years. We're in the 'History of Rock'N'Roll,' a book about Perth music. #Quote by Paul Eenhoorn
Stage quotes by Matisyahu

Stage quotes by Tracy Letts
#150. Some people do stage and film. Some people are film actors, and some people are stage actors. I'm quite sure that any of the actors who did the original production of 'August' could have done the film of 'August.' I don't think any of them were particularly surprised when they didn't wind up doing the film. #Quote by Tracy Letts
Stage quotes by Roger Daltrey
#151. I don't think you should ever say, 'This is the last time'. Music isn't like that. You'll be sitting there not wishing to get onto a stage again for maybe two, three, four, five months, or maybe a year, then suddenly you'll wake up and feel like you've got to do it again. It's in the blood, and I never say never. #Quote by Roger Daltrey

Stage quotes by Anne Sweeney
#153. Pages were always supposed to be off-camera - we were supposed to be invisible. But I had a moment where I saw a kid who was ready to flip himself out of the balcony, so I ran down and grabbed him and put him back in his seat. I remember the stage manager taking me aside and saying, "Can you please never do that again? I know you were saving his life, but we have you in the shot." #Quote by Anne Sweeney

Stage quotes by Terence McKenna
#156. What we really are is a community of mind, knitted together by codes and symbols, intuitions, aspirations, histories, hopes - the invisible world of the human experience is far more real to us than the visible world, which is little more than a kind of stage or screen on which we move. #Quote by Terence McKenna

Stage quotes by Sam Harris
#158. I want those in what I call the regressive left who are reading this exchange to understand that the first stage in the empowerment of any minority community is the liberation of reformist voices within that community so that its members can take responsibility for themselves and overcome the first hurdle to genuine empowerment: the victimhood mentality. This is what the American civil rights movement achieved, by shifting the debate. Martin Luther King Jr. and other leaders took responsibility for their own communities and acted in a positive and empowering way, instead of constantly playing the victim card or rioting in the streets. Perpetuating this groupthink mind-set is both extremely dangerous and in fact disempowering. #Quote by Sam Harris

Stage quotes by Bayard Rustin
#160. For generations the status quo has been based on violence, with the Negro as victim. A few whites have managed to be liberal without feeling a direct threat to their social position. Now, as the Negroes reach the stage where they make specific, if minimum, demands, a new and revolutionary situation has developed. There is little middle ground on which to maneuver and few compromises that are possible. For the first time, the white liberals are forced to stand for racial justice or to repudiate the liberal principles which they have always wanted to believe in. #Quote by Bayard Rustin
Stage quotes by Katie Couric
#161. The whole culture of wearing flags on our lapel and saying 'we' when referring to the United States and, even the 'shock and awe' of the initial stages, it was just too jubilant and just a little uncomfortable. #Quote by Katie Couric
Stage quotes by Steve Kluger
#162. It would have served me right if I'd had a cerebral aneurysm on the spot. Instead, I forgot all about my foot

Stage quotes by Paul Dano

Stage quotes by Kristin Kimball
#167. Everything ends. The natural order of things is immutable. Seed, flower, fruit, decline, death, decay. Seed. Each stage has its own drama and its own particular beauty. If you can see it, you can accept it. The parts are graceful, and so is the whole. #Quote by Kristin Kimball
Stage quotes by Neil Tennant
#168. At one time musical theater, particularly in the '40s and '50s, was a big source of pop songs. That's how musical theater started, really - it was just a way of linking several pop songs for the stage. #Quote by Neil Tennant
Stage quotes by Danny Fox
#169. A lot of my words come to me when I'm out and about as well, riding the bus or sat in the pub. I went through a stage of going to a strip bar called the White Horse at lunch times and did a lot of writing in there. They were fine with that but I don't know how they would feel about me setting up the easel. #Quote by Danny Fox
Stage quotes by Wu Han
#170. If you're dreaming of being a great soloist, walking on stage, receiving ovations night after night, having money thrown at you, girls chasing after you and your beautiful picture - that's wonderful. But what exactly does that have to do with the practice of music ? #Quote by Wu Han
Stage quotes by Richard Taylor
#171. Most people are, in the most ordinary sense, very limited. They pass their time, day after day, in idle, passive pursuits, just looking at things - at games, television, whatever. Or they fill the hours talking, mostly about nothing of significance - of comings and goings, of who is doing what, of the weather, of things forgotten almost as soon as they are mentioned. They have no aspirations for themselves beyond getting through another doing more or less what they did yesterday. They walk across the stage of life, leaving everything about as it was when they entered, achieving nothing, aspiring to nothing, having never a profound or even original thought... This is what is common, usual, typical, indeed normal. Relatively few rise above such a plodding existence. #Quote by Richard Taylor
Stage quotes by Jacques Santer
#172. It is now up to us to see that we embark on the next stage leading to political unity, which I think is the consequence of economic unity, so that Europe can in the future also play a political role on the international stage, leading even as far as a common defence policy. #Quote by Jacques Santer
Stage quotes by Steve
#173. My demon is hating to have to do a regular day job. Being up on stage really helps me forget I have a life like that - when I did have a life like that. I find complete contentment and happiness when I'm playing in front of an audience. #Quote by Steve "Lips" Kudlow
Stage quotes by Vladimir Odoevsky
#174. At that shameful stage in the development of our criticism, literary abuse would overstep all limits of decorum; literature itself was a totally extraneous matter in critical articles: they were pure invective, a vulgar battle of vulgar jokes, double-entendres, the most vicious calumnies and offensive constructions. It goes without saying, that in this inglorious battle, the only winners were those who had nothing to lose as far as their good name was concerned. My friends and I were totally deluded. We imagined ourselves engaged in the subtle philosophical disputes of the portico or the academy, or at least the drawing room. In actual fact we were slumming it. #Quote by Vladimir Odoevsky

#181. Self-love is meant to be your foundation. It is your birthright. Once you get it – once you really feel what it is like to love yourself… to fall in love with yourself – you might never want to leave this stage. #Quote by Annette Vaillancourt
Stage quotes by Hope Solo
#182. On a global stage, I have respect in the goalkeeping world. #Quote by Hope Solo
Stage quotes by Sylvia Plath
#183. There are a few times when the songs that are written, the poems that are written, the plays that are written, come alive. By accident you fall onto a stage-set put aside for a tragedy for the lesser gods, and you utter words that were in the script written in the leaves and in the grass for some heroic cast. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Stage quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#184. There are two famous quips of Stalin which are both grounded in this logic. When Stalin answered the question "Which deviation is worse, the Rightist or the Leftist one?" by "They are both worse!", the underlying premise is that the Leftist deviation is REALLY ("objectively," as Stalinists liked to put it) not leftist at all, but a concealed Rightist one! When Stalin wrote, in a report on a party congress, that the delegates, with the majority of votes, unanimously approved the CC resolution, the underlying premise is, again, that there was really no minority within the party: those who voted against thereby excluded themselves from the party... In all these cases, the genus repeatedly overlaps (fully coincides) with one of its species. This is also what allows Stalin to read history retroactively, so that things "become clear" retroactively: it was not that Trotsky was first fighting for the revolution with Lenin and Stalin and then, at a certain stage, opted for a different strategy than the one advocated by Stalin; this last opposition (Trotsky/Stalin) "makes it clear" how, "objectively," Trotsky was against revolution all the time back.

We find the same procedure in the classificatory impasse the Stalinist ideologists and political activists faced in their struggle for collectivization in the years 1928-1933. In their attempt to account for their effort to crush the peasants' resistance in "scientific" Marxist terms, they divided peasants into three categories #Quote by Slavoj Zizek

#185. Music is like a really sacred, awesome thing. That first 45 minutes to two hours that you're on stage spending time with music every night is always really great. #Quote by Tift Merritt
Stage quotes by Dave Chappelle
#186. When I'm on stage, I get real happy there. Maybe that's the only time in my adult life I feel like myself. #Quote by Dave Chappelle
Stage quotes by Tamera Mowry
#187. I'd rather marry my husband in the stage where I know what I'm getting into and what it's going to be like for our life together. #Quote by Tamera Mowry
Stage quotes by Anyaele Sam Chiyson
#188. Set your stage of successful leadership so that your team will have a place to operate from and lead with you. #Quote by Anyaele Sam Chiyson
Stage quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#189. You know ... it's a hard age. Kids are in that stage where they're beginning to understand the world of adults, without having the maturity of adults to deal with everything going on around them. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Stage quotes by Rick Perry
#190. There is no one who's gonna be sitting on that stage who has the record of job creation I have. There's one in particular who's created jobs all around the world. While he was the governor of Massachusetts he didn't create many jobs. #Quote by Rick Perry
Stage quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#191. Predilection, n. The preparatory stage of disillusion. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Stage quotes by Philip Pullman
#192. Waste of time," said the leper. "There's a dozen or more beggars who come here every day, pretending to be cripples, hiring themselves out to the holy men. A couple of drachmas and they'll swear they've been crippled or blind for years then stage a bloody miraculous recovery. Holy men? Healers? Don't make me laugh."
"But this man is different," said Christ.
"I remember him," said the blind man. "Jesus. He come here on the sabbath, like a fool. The priests wouldn't let him heal anyone on sabbath. He should've known that."
"But he did heal someone," said the lame man. "Old Hiram. You remember that. He told him to take up his bed and walk."
"Bloody rubbish," said the blind man. "Hiram went as far as the temple gate, then he lay down and went on begging. Old Sarah told me. He said what was the use of taking his living away? Begging was the only thing he knew how to do. You and your blether about goodness," he said, turning to Christ, "where's the goodness in throwing an old man out into the street without a trade, without a home, without a penny? Eh? That Jesus is asking too much of people."
"But he was good," said the lame man. "I don't care what you say. You could feel it, you could see it in his eyes."
"I never saw it," said the blind man. #Quote by Philip Pullman
Stage quotes by Neve Campbell
#193. There's a feeling of elation that comes after getting off stage and then there's a feeling of utter sadness that comes after getting off the stage. #Quote by Neve Campbell
Stage quotes by Charlie Chaplin
#194. I had no idea of the character. But the moment I was dressed, the clothes and the make-up made me feel the person he was. I began to know him, and by the time I walked onto the stage he was fully born. #Quote by Charlie Chaplin
Stage quotes by Caitlin Thomas
#195. I had got to the dawn of the beautiful not caring, but fully aware, stage, which degenerates so imperceptibly into the doing something unpermissible stage. #Quote by Caitlin Thomas
Stage quotes by Lloyd Alexander
#196. We don't need to have just one favorite. We keep adding favorites. Our favorite book is always the book that speaks most directly to us at a particular stage in our lives. And our lives change. We have other favorites that give us what we most need at that particular time. But we never lose the old favorites. They're always with us. We just sort of accumulate them. #Quote by Lloyd Alexander
Stage quotes by Evelyn Underhill
#197. All men, at one time or another, have fallen in love with the veiled Isis whom they call Truth. With most, this has been a passing passion: they have early seen its hopelessness and turned to more practical things. But others remain all their lives the devout lovers of reality: though the manner of their love, the vision which they make to themselves of the beloved object varies enormously. Some see Truth as Dante saw Beatrice: an adorable yet intangible figure, found in this world yet revealing the next. To others she seems rather an evil but an irresistible enchantress: enticing, demanding payment and betraying her lover at the last. Some have seen her in a test tube, and some in a poet's dream: some before the altar, others in the slime. The extreme pragmatists have even sought her in the kitchen; declaring that she may best be recognized by her utility. Last stage of all, the philosophic sceptic has comforted an unsuccessful courtship by assuring himself that his mistress is not really there. #Quote by Evelyn Underhill
Stage quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#198. The real meaning of persona is a mask, such as actors were accustomed to wear on the ancient stage; and it is quite true that no one shows himself as he is, but wears his mask and plays his part. Indeed, the whole of our social arrangements may be likened to a perpetual comedy; and this is why a man who is worth anything finds society so insipid, while a blockhead is quite at home in it. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Stage quotes by Al Jarreau
#199. It's a wonderful thing to have life and to look at all this creation and say thank you. I even say it on stage. #Quote by Al Jarreau
Stage quotes by J. W. N. Sullivan
#200. We have reached one of the great stages in the adventure of thought ... We are required to see the universe with new eyes, and it is because it makes such demands and also holds out the promise of realizing them, that the study of science is so supremely worth while. #Quote by J. W. N. Sullivan
