Television quotes by Issa Rae
#1. I don't think the mainstream media understands people of color are multidimensional. For some reason, there's an idea that only white people are relatable. I don't think it's necessarily racist. But it's odd, because the people who watch the most television are black women, so we should be represented in more ways. #Quote by Issa Rae
Television quotes by Morley Safer
#2. I really don't like being on television. It makes me uneasy. It is not natural to be talking to a piece of machinery. But the money is very good. #Quote by Morley Safer
Television quotes by Neal Stephenson
#3. But the television news cameras couldn't get anywhere near the action, so the coverage mostly consisted of journalists interviewing each other about how little they knew. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Television quotes by Charles Dance
#4. We get a successful television series or something, and next season they give you less time and less money, which is something I've never really understood. That doesn't happen with Game of Thrones. #Quote by Charles Dance
Television quotes by Amanda Schull
#5. The work that I have been doing on television has been important to me because I have had the opportunity to portray very strong, intelligent women. It has been such a privilege to depict a woman that is independent, unapologetic, and resilient on both shows. #Quote by Amanda Schull
Television quotes by Lee Siegel
#6. Television has to reflect back to you your own sense of security. It also has to mirror your sense of your own decency and your own limitations. #Quote by Lee Siegel
Television quotes by John Cheever
#7. They were delivered to mansions remodeled into country clubs, boarding schools, retreats for the insane, alcohol cures, health farms, wildlife sanctuaries, wallpaper factories, drafting rooms and places where the aged and the infirm waited sniffily for the angel of death in front of their television sets. #Quote by John Cheever
Television quotes by Jason Moore
#8. Ultimately, as a director, you try and tell people where to look, but unlike film or television, where you force them to look at something, you can't control it completely. #Quote by Jason Moore
Television quotes by Charles Krauthammer
#9. Consider the oddity of those drug commercials on television. Fifteen seconds of the purported therapeutic effort, followed by about 45 seconds of a rapidly muttered list of horrific possible side effects. When the ad is over, I can't remember a thing about what the pill is supposed to do, except perhaps cause nausea, liver damage, projectile vomiting, a nasty rash, a four-hour erection, and sudden death. Sudden death is my favorite because there is something comical about it being a side effect. What exactly is the main effect in that case? Relief from abdominal bloating? #Quote by Charles Krauthammer
Television quotes by William Shatner
#10. I did some professional radio acting as a teenager, and I essentially put myself through college with radio acting in Montreal. When I graduated, I got jobs in professional theatres, repertory, and stock theatres in Canada for a couple of years. And then I went to Stratford, Ontario, where I spent three years with a Shakespeare company. We took a classical play from Stratford to New York City, and I got some good notices there and essentially stayed and did live television. And that brings you to the beginning of filming. #Quote by William Shatner
Television quotes by Tom Selleck
#11. Television's grown up a lot. It's a little more adult, which I think is a good thing. It allows actors to tell more complex stories. I'm happy to see where it ends up. #Quote by Tom Selleck
Television quotes by Lauren Iungerich
#12. I think there's a lot of really good programming on television. What I've noticed, through the years of being a professional writer, is the watering down process of story. You have to market to the masses and not offend anybody. #Quote by Lauren Iungerich
Television quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#13. They reminded Ifemelu of television commercials, of people whose lives were lived always in flattering light, whose messes were still aesthetically pleasing. #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Television quotes by Kevin Spacey
#14. Kids aren't growing up with a sense of television as the aspirational place for their ideas. #Quote by Kevin Spacey
Television quotes by Robin Weigert
#15. Television has changed. Some feels like good old-fashioned TV, and some of it feels more filmic and more natural and more nuanced. I don't think there's any clear line any longer between film and TV. #Quote by Robin Weigert
Television quotes by Victoria Coren
#16. In 2000, John Duthie won the Poker Million on the Isle of Man. He was in the newspapers, he was on television. The first player to win £1,000,000 outside America. Knowing himself, Duthie had the cleverest idea of all time: he put a chunk of the money away, for mortgages and children's education, in a bank account that he opened jointly with his father-in-law. Brilliant. If it had been a joint account with his wife, he might have phoned her from a casino one desperate night and begged her to co-sign a big withdrawal slip. But a call like that to his wife's father? Never. #Quote by Victoria Coren
Television quotes by Jerry Springer
#17. I can't imagine anybody who has spoken to more, or presented more non-famous people on television in the history of the world. #Quote by Jerry Springer
Television quotes by Adolph Zukor
#18. Rather than lose the public because television is here, wouldn't it be smart to adopt television as our instrument? #Quote by Adolph Zukor
Television quotes by Craig Brown
#19. In real life, nothing would be more tedious than trailing around after two strangers as they went house-hunting in Hertfordshire. But for some reason, television is more compelling than real life. #Quote by Craig Brown
Television quotes by Clive Anderson
#20. If I ever had any vanity, then I definitely lost it by being on television. It doesn't do you any favours in terms of showing you what you look like and what your emotions are. #Quote by Clive Anderson
Television quotes by Robert Klein
#21. So it took me five years because in the interim I have been doing a lot of personal appearances and movies and some television series that went into the plumbing and I stopped writing for a while. #Quote by Robert Klein
Television quotes by Michio Kaku
#22. [On the practical applications of particle physics research with the Large Hadron Collider.]
Sometimes the public says, 'What's in it for Numero Uno? Am I going to get better television reception? Am I going to get better Internet reception?' Well, in some sense, yeah ... All the wonders of quantum physics were learned basically from looking at atom-smasher technology ... But let me let you in on a secret: We physicists are not driven to do this because of better color television ... That's a spin-off. We do this because we want to understand our role and our place in the universe. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Television quotes by John Sentamu
#23. As the week's events on reality television demonstrate, there is an ugly underbelly in society only too ready to point the finger at the foreigner, or those who might not fit in. [on celeb big brother #Quote by John Sentamu
Television quotes by Bernie Sanders
#24. I don't want to see kids in America being scared because they're hearing people on television and the radio saying really ugly xenophobic and racist things. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Television quotes by Christopher Eccleston
#25. I think film and television are really a director's medium, whereas theatre is the actor's medium. #Quote by Christopher Eccleston
Television quotes by Marcus Sakey
#26. Freedom is not a couch. It's not a television, or a car, or a house. It's not an item you can possess. You cannot put freedom on layaway; you cannot refinance freedom. Freedom is something you need to fight for, not once, but every single day. The nature of freedom is that it is fluid; like water in a leaking bucket, the tendency is for it to drain away. Left untended, the holes through which freedom escapes widen. When politicians restrict our rights in order to "protect us," freedom is lost. When the military refuses to disclose basic facts, freedom is lost. Worst of all, when fear becomes a part of our lives, we willingly surrender freedom for a promise of safety, as if freedom weren't the very basis of safety. #Quote by Marcus Sakey
Television quotes by Bo Derek
#27. We were on the island of Hawaii. I think I was there three months. It was fantastic. It is not much different than films. It depends on the television show but much of television today is as good or better than most films. #Quote by Bo Derek
Television quotes by Katherine A. Fowkes
#28. [A] new finding shows that while in the 1940s, three-quarters of those surveyed claimed to dream in black and white, today, three-quarters say the opposite, that they dream in color. This reversal is attributed to a change in the number of people who grew up watching color rather than black and white television ... another hint that our private dreams are intimately linked to our collective mediated experiences. #Quote by Katherine A. Fowkes
Television quotes by Sogyal Rinpoche
#29. Switch on the television or glance at the newspaper: You will see death everywhere. Yet, did the victims of those plane crashes and car accidents expect to die? They took life for granted, as we do. How often do we hear stories of people whom we know, or even friends, who died unexpectedly? We don't even have to be ill to die: Our bodies can suddenly break down and go out of order, just like our cars. We can be quite well one day, then fall sick and die the next. #Quote by Sogyal Rinpoche
Television quotes by Janis Ian
#30. I was interviewed for a Grammy television show, and they asked me about Nashville, and I talked for three minutes and when I finished, I was teared up. The whole room was crying. Nashville has given me a home, where I never had a home before. #Quote by Janis Ian
Television quotes by Nick Cannon
#31. We are already expected to be the goodie two shoes. I went through that during my junior high schools where I wasn't allowed to watch television. I wasn't allowed to listen to the radio. #Quote by Nick Cannon
Television quotes by Kelly Clarkson
#32. I'm sorry I'm crying again on national television. #Quote by Kelly Clarkson
Television quotes by Rosie O'Donnell
#33. The hope for me going back into television - after doing what will have been two years of radio - is to bring that authenticity with me. And, to not have the visual be overpowering the content. #Quote by Rosie O'Donnell
Television quotes by Greg Proops
#34. Oh, no! I haven't lost hope at all! Look, we're all here–we're all having a good time on Sunday night! I just read you a lot of depressing shit like that and talk about these things because you have to think about them sometimes. I haven't lost hope at all. There's going to be abortion; there's going to be health care; there's going to be medical marijuana; there's going to be peace in the world; there's going to be homosexual marriage: all this is going to happen, because all the generation that hates it and is against it and is fervent about it is going to die. I may not get to see it, but . . . The people who are young right now don't care about any of those things: they care about technology; they care about eating; they care about learning. They're curious; they want to find out things; they want the world to be bigger; they want to know about other people in other places; they want to inform themselves and use analytical thinking; they don't trust the traditional media sources that we've all been poisoned to fucking listen to like the television and the newspapers and all the shit that comes up on the Internet: they learn to fucking discern because they have to pick out pieces of information all the time. So, I have nothing but fucking hope for the world. #Quote by Greg Proops
Television quotes by Bob Uecker
#35. Not bragging by any means, but I could have done a lot of other stuff as far as working in films go and working in television ... I had chances to do that stuff, but I like baseball, I really do. #Quote by Bob Uecker
Television quotes by Emily Deschanel
#36. But actually my dad is a very talented director and not just his use of shots and camera, but he's very good with actors and he knows acting well. It's great to see him do that and be really good at it and he's been doing it for a while and he certainly knows how to make movies, and little movies I guess for a television show, and he's going to come back in November to direct a second episode, which I'm really excited about. #Quote by Emily Deschanel
Television quotes by Hank Bracker
#37. January 8, 1959; Castro enters Havana
On January 8, 1959, Fidel made his grand entrance into Havana. With his son Fidelito at his side, he rode on top of a Sherman tank to Camp Columbia, where he gave the first of his long, rambling, difficult-to-endure speeches. It was broadcast on radio and television for the entire world to witness. For the Cubans it was what they had waited for! During the speech, smiling Castro asked Camilo Cienfuegos, "How am I doing?" and the catch phrase "Voy bien, Camilo" was born. #Quote by Hank Bracker
Television quotes by Robert L. Millet
#38. It takes a pretty strong person, a rather unusual young person, to stand up to ridicule and refuse to give in to temptation. There are so many things today in modern music, on television, and in the movies that portray a life that is nowhere near the life the Lord would have us live. Consequently, we cannot afford to turn to the radio, television, or Hollywood to take our cues about what is right and what is wrong. It is scary to realize that the more we are exposed to Hollywood's version of life, the more we gradually begin to accept it. #Quote by Robert L. Millet
Television quotes by Elizabeth Janeway
#39. Television. It has changed the way that we perceive the world out there, and though we know that - have indeed been bombarded with analyses on the consequences for society, for the family, and for individual psychology - I don't believe that we have yet begun to appreciate the reach of its subliminal effects, of what we might call 'the slow viruses.' They not only get into our ways of seeing, they pervade the ways in which we weave our perceptions together into patterns that support and explain our thinking and our doing and both direct and hinder various kinds of relationships. #Quote by Elizabeth Janeway
Television quotes by George Orwell
#40. The instrument (the telescreen, it was called) could be dimmed, but there was no way of shutting it off completely. #Quote by George Orwell
Television quotes by John Hagee
#41. The battle against good and evil is raging now! Look at your television programming and movie advertisements presenting the occult ... the demonic ... the satanic ... the practice of witchcraft and sorcery in popular books ... the open hostility toward Christianity and the revival of anti-Semitism. The fight is on for the hearts and minds of our children in ours homes, our schools, our universities, and our society. #Quote by John Hagee
Television quotes by Dean Wareham
#42. My favorite Luna disc is our third, 'Penthouse,' a sparkly, moody album that works from track one all the way to track 11. Tom Verlaine of Television and Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab make guest appearances. I am also fond of the final Luna album, 'Rendezvous.' #Quote by Dean Wareham
Television quotes by Fatih Akin
#43. The Turks who live here in Germany don't get their information from German media. They read Turkish newspapers and watch Turkish television. A sort of parallel media world has developed in Germany, especially as a result of technological advances like satellite TV and the internet. #Quote by Fatih Akin
Television quotes by Al Franken
#44. When I first started writing for television in the seventies and eighties, the Internet didn't exist, and we didn't need to worry about foreign websites illegally distributing the latest TV shows and blockbuster movies online. #Quote by Al Franken
Television quotes by Tahar Ben Jelloun
#45. It is impossible to disregard such an important medium as television. We should know how to use it, learn to work in it and express new values in it. #Quote by Tahar Ben Jelloun
Television quotes by Vincent Kartheiser
#46. I don't really study television or how things do or don't change. So I don't know anything about that. I'm just a stupid actor. #Quote by Vincent Kartheiser
Television quotes by J. Michael Straczynski
#47. Captain John Sheridan: I wish I had your faith in the universe. I just don't see it.
Delenn: Then I will tell you a great secret, Captain. Perhaps the greatest of them all. The molecules of your body are the same molecules that make up this station , and the nebula outside, that burn inside the stars themselves. We are starstuff. We are the universe made manifest, trying to figure itself out. And as we have both learned, sometimes the universe requires a change of perspective. #Quote by J. Michael Straczynski
Television quotes by Donald Jeffries
#48. Questions surround nearly every aspect of the assassination. The chain
of possession regarding each piece of evidence was tainted beyond repair.
The presidential limousine, which represented the literal crime scene,
was taken over by officials immediately after JFK's body was carried into
Parkland Hospital and tampered with. The Secret Service apparently cleaned
up the limousine, washing away crucial evidence in the process. Obviously,
whatever bullet fragments or other material that was purportedly found
there became immediately suspect because of this. On November 26, the
windshield on the presidential limo was replaced.
The supposed murder weapon - a cheap, Italian Mannlicher-Carcano
rifle with a defective scope, allegedly ordered by Oswald through a post office
box registered to his purported alias, Alex Hidell - is similarly troublesome.
The two Dallas officers who discovered the rifle on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository building, Seymour Weitzman and Eugene Boone,
both swore in separate affidavits that the weapon was a German Mauser. As
was to become all too common in this case, they would later each claim to be
"mistaken" in a curiously identical manner.
In fact, as late as midnight on November 22, Dallas District Attorney
Henry Wade would refer to the rifle as a Mauser when speaking to the press.
Local WFAA television reported the weapon found as both a German #Quote by Donald Jeffries
Television quotes by James Purdy
#49. No one looks at a television, and no one hears it. It's a poison. #Quote by James Purdy
Television quotes by Jessie Ann Foley
#50. Maggie sipped her drink with the cat draped across her lap and the dog curled at her feet. The only sounds in the room were the crackling of the fire and Dan Sean's shallow snores. There were no CD's to play, no radio, no television. There was nothing. She was just sitting there in silence, getting drunk. It occurred to her that a person's first drunken experience shoud be in the basement of a friend's house, in a forest preserve, behind the bleachers of a football field. Certainly not in the company of a sleeping ninety-nine-year-old man. She giggled a little and wondered what Uncle Kevin would make of it. "Hot port?" he would say. "Very impressive, Mags. I would have thought you'd be more of a wine cooler type of girl. #Quote by Jessie Ann Foley
Television quotes by Jeaniene Frost
#51. MTV and video games have solved that problem as far as most of humanity goes. That, and telly, as it were."
"Telly?" Who was that?
He grunted in amusement. "Television, of course. Don't you speak English?"
"You sure don't," I muttered.
Shaking his head, he frowned at me. #Quote by Jeaniene Frost
Television quotes by Joseph McGinty Nichol
#52. What's better these days, television or film? It's a dead heat. In fact, one could argue for television with more regularity. #Quote by Joseph McGinty Nichol
Television quotes by Nick Robinson
#53. I'd like to start trying different fields of work. I don't want to be stuck in just comedy, and I'd be interested to try to break into the movie business because it's so much different than television. #Quote by Nick Robinson
Television quotes by Pauley Perrette
#54. My whole goal was to be able to work in television and film and maintain a normal life, never be in a tabloid. #Quote by Pauley Perrette
Television quotes by Peter David
#55. What do we think of sex on television? Frankly, I think it's a pain. For one thing, the cable box gets wedged into your back and gets real uncomfortable ... #Quote by Peter David
Television quotes by Rocky Graziano
#56. It took me nine years to get through the fourth grade. When I got into television commercials, I had to take a crash course in reading. I was 32 years old, and I couldn't read the cue cards. #Quote by Rocky Graziano
Television quotes by Katrina Kaif
#57. I'm not a television anchor for a Hindi channel or a radio jockey. So I may not be able to have a spontaneous conversation in Hindi. I'm a Bollywood actress, and I can certainly speak my dialogue in Hindi. #Quote by Katrina Kaif
Television quotes by Kara DioGuardi
#58. Just because you're a star on television doesn't mean that you can be a music phenomenon or an artist. You have to have the material to back it, and it's all about hit songs. I can name you every 'Idol' winner and why they didn't go on to have success - their songs. The ones who have - their songs. #Quote by Kara DioGuardi
Television quotes by Betty White
#59. When we started in television, there was that magic box in the corner of the room, and 'Oh my gosh - look what it's doing!' #Quote by Betty White
Television quotes by Kristen Middleton
#60. I turned on the television and watched a movie about a girl who'd fallen in love with both a vampire and a werewolf. I'd already seen it a million times, so my eyelids grew heavy, fairly quickly. Ten minutes later I was out cold in my bed and dreaming of Duncan, who turned into a werewolf and was trying to kill my own vampire boyfriend. Every time I tried to see the vampire's face, however, it was a blur. #Quote by Kristen Middleton
Television quotes by Gore Vidal
#61. Since the reading skills of the American people are the lowest in the First World, the general public is always easy prey to manipulation by television. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Television quotes by Peter Jackson
#62. I fell in love with stories watching a British television puppet show called 'Thunderbirds' when it first came out on TV, about 1965, so I would have been 4 or 5 years old. I went out into the garden at my mom and dad's house, and I used to play with my little dinky toys, little cars and trucks and things. #Quote by Peter Jackson
Television quotes by Stephen Moyer
#63. I was the classic liberal, left-wing, 'Theater is going to change the world' kind of person. You know, very, very boring. #Quote by Stephen Moyer
Television quotes by Harlan Coben
#64. He tried to read, but the words swam in front of his eyes in meaningless waves. He put on the television. Nick at Nite, the cultural equivalent of aerosol cheese. #Quote by Harlan Coben
Television quotes by Jimmi Simpson
#65. I have a couple screenplays that are done, and I'm looking for the right people to help me make them. I do a lot of television writing to develop new ideas for shows. #Quote by Jimmi Simpson
Television quotes by Sharon Kay Penman
#66. I certainly know all about the Jersey jokes that amuse the rest of the country. You've probably heard them. Our state bird is the mosquito. Our state tree is dead. It doesn't help that we are represented on television by Tony Soprano and 'Jersey Shore.' #Quote by Sharon Kay Penman
Television quotes by Merri Lisa Johnson
#67. I bored myself to tears with the daytime television drama of confrontation (I've been wronged!). I winced at sluggish morning half-memories of wearing wrongness like a lampshade on my head (I'm mentally ill!). #Quote by Merri Lisa Johnson
Television quotes by Michael Gambon
#68. Television has dried up for my generation, so it's plays and films. You get used to being lazy doing films, but classical theatre's going to finish me off. #Quote by Michael Gambon
Television quotes by Kim Raver
#69. In this business, there is an insane amount of pressure, spoken and unspoken, to be thin. If you look at some of the television shows, eating disorders become like a competitive thing. #Quote by Kim Raver
Television quotes by Kiefer Sutherland
#70. I didn't realize that television has gone through immense changes and has become very progressive. #Quote by Kiefer Sutherland
Television quotes by Doug Wilson
#71. In May of 2010, the newest pitching phenom, Stephen Strasburg, played a minor league game in Syracuse. A huge crowd turned out, the largest in the history of the stadium. The game was broadcast on regional television. Gazing over the enormous crowd, the play-by-play man asked his partner on the air if he had ever seen a pitcher draw such a crowd all by himself. The color commentator, ex-Detroit Tiger pitcher Steve Grilli, answered without hesitation, "Yea, Mark 'The Bird' Fidrych - every time he went out. #Quote by Doug Wilson
Television quotes by Jack Valenti
#72. A huge parasite in the marketplace, feeding and fattening itself off of local television stations and copyright owners of copyrighted material. We do not like it because we think it wrong and unfair. #Quote by Jack Valenti
Television quotes by BD Wong
#73. In television, a sitcom is probably the closest thing to what it's like working in the theater. #Quote by BD Wong
Television quotes by William Bennett
#74. Nothing in recent years, on television or anywhere else, has improved on a good story that begins "Once upon a time ... " #Quote by William Bennett
Television quotes by Sherman Alexie
#75. My father was sleepless most of his life. So by the age of five, I was awake with him all night long, watching bad television or we'd lie in the same bed, and I'd read my comic books while he read his latest spy or mystery novel. #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Television quotes by Lewis Black
#76. I was home alone watching George Bush speak on television. So it was just really the two of us. And as I listened to him, I realized, that one of us ... was nuts! And for the first time ever, I went, 'Wow, it's not me!' #Quote by Lewis Black
Television quotes by Adam Rayner
#77. I don't devour huge amounts of television. I'm more naturally inclined to watch movies, but given my job, I need to have an understanding of what's on TV. #Quote by Adam Rayner
Television quotes by Don DeLillo
#78. How does a successful television commercial affect the viewer?"
"It makes him want to change the way he lives."
"In what way?" I said.
"It moves him from first person consciousness to third person. In this country there is a universal third person, the man we all want to be. Advertising has discovered this man. It uses him to express the possibilities open to the consumer. To consume in America is not to buy; it is to dream. Advertising is the suggestion that the dream of entering the third person singular might possibly be fulfilled. #Quote by Don DeLillo
Television quotes by Alan Ball
#79. I'm used to American actors who have a movie career thinking television acting is beneath them. #Quote by Alan Ball
Television quotes by Mark Russell
#80. People are not in a good mood when any politician's face appears on television. #Quote by Mark Russell
Television quotes by Justin Trudeau
#81. I don't read the newspapers, I don't watch the news. I figure, if something important happens, someone will tell me. #Quote by Justin Trudeau
Television quotes by Jonathan Lethem
#82. To live in Manhattan is to be persistently amazed at the worlds squirreled inside one another, the chaotic intricacy with which realms interweave, like those lines of television cable and fresh water and steam heat and outgoing sewage and telephone wire and whatever else which cohabit in the same intestinal holes that pavement demolishing workmen periodically wrench open into daylight and to our passing, disturbed glances. #Quote by Jonathan Lethem
Television quotes by David Oyelowo
#83. I've been an actor for 14 years now and a lot of that time was spent in theatre and television. Then I moved to L.A. to try and build upon that and it's starting to pay off! #Quote by David Oyelowo
Television quotes by Bob Saget
#84. If you're a host of a video show and you're on the cleanest show on television for eight years, people want to say, 'Well, that's what that person does.' That was the dilemma for me, career-wise. #Quote by Bob Saget
Television quotes by Bernard Pivot
#85. This programme would only really make sense and work properly if it was also broadcast on France's international television channel TV5. So I ended up with a double production, on France 2 and TV5. #Quote by Bernard Pivot
Television quotes by Rita Mae Brown
#86. Art is moral passion married to entertainment. Moral passion without entertainment is propaganda, and entertainment without moral passion is television. #Quote by Rita Mae Brown
Television quotes by Jim Butcher
#87. I ... briefly wondered why I kept running into repeat uses of various locations around town. This wasn't the first time I'd dealt with the bad guys choosing to reuse a location different bad guys had used before them. Maybe there was a Villainous Time-share Association. Maybe my life was actually a basic-cable television show, and they couldn't afford to spend money on new sets all the time. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Television quotes by Henry Blodget
#88. People have been predicting the death of television for 20 years now, and so far it's been entirely wrong. But it does seem viewership habits are starting to change. #Quote by Henry Blodget
Television quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#89. David Epstein, the author of the best book on athletics in recent memory - "The Sports Gene" - wrote to me to say that he thinks I'm being overly generous. He points out that, for years, there used to be an "all-star challenge" on television, in which the best professional athletes from a variety of sports competed in a kind of makeshift decathlon. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Television quotes by Tariq Ali
#90. We have populations now in the West with a very short memory span. One reason for this short memory span is that television over the last fifteen years has seen a big decline in the coverage of the rest of the world. #Quote by Tariq Ali
Television quotes by Henry Miller
#91. Christ will never more come down to earth nor will there be any law-giver, nor will murder cease nor theft, nor rape, and yet ... and yet one expects something, something terrifyingly marvellous and absurd, perhaps a cold lobster with mayonnaise served gratis, perhaps an invention, like the electric light, like television, only more devastating, more soul rending, an invention unthinkable that will bring a shattering calm and void, not the calm and void of death but of life such as the monks dreamed, such as is dreamed still in the Himalayas, in Tibet, in Lahore, in the Aleutian Islands, in Polynesia, in Easter Island, the dream of men before the flood, before the word was written, the dream of cave men and anthropophagists, of those with double sex and short tails, of those who are said to be crazy and have no way of defending themselves because they are outnumbered by those who are not crazy. #Quote by Henry Miller
Television quotes by Janet Evanovich
#92. It was Lorraine in her nightie and Mo in his cap. They'd just settled their brains for a long winter's nap in front of the television. When out in the lot there arose such a clatter, they sprang from their recliners to see what was the matter. Away to the window they flew like a flash, tore open the blinds and threw up the sash. And what to their wondering eyes should appear, but Stephanie Plum and yet another of her cars burning front to rear. #Quote by Janet Evanovich
Television quotes by Fran Lebowitz
#93. All of television's appalling, but this is hardly a new statement. #Quote by Fran Lebowitz
Television quotes by Charlie Rose
#94. Gary Player and others have said all of us should all give Arnold Palmer a percentage of our earnings because without you there would be no television contracts and without you it wouldn't be as good for anyone. #Quote by Charlie Rose
Television quotes by Kathryn Bigelow
#95. My criteria for doing a television series never changed. I wanted more stability, I wanted more of a sense of family, I wanted to do light comedy. #Quote by Kathryn Bigelow
Television quotes by Rhonda Byrne
#96. Through being fired I was given the perfect circumstances to finally answer my calling and live my dream, and I remain grateful to this day for that television network firing me. Without them, I would have refused the call to follow my dream, and I would have missed living the most exciting and fulfilling journey of my life. #Quote by Rhonda Byrne
Television quotes by Marie Winn
#97. It is among the ranks of school-age children, those six- to twelve-year-olds who once avidly filled their free moments with childhood play, that the greatest change is evident. In the place of traditional, sometimes ancient childhood games that were still popular a generation ago, in the place of fantasy and make- believe play ... today's children have substituted television viewing and, most recently, video games. #Quote by Marie Winn
Television quotes by L'Wren Scott
#98. People often try to disguise televisions. I always think that makes it worse. It is what it is! #Quote by L'Wren Scott
Television quotes by Ron Perlman
#99. Look at the people who are coming to television Ridley Scott, Ang Lee or Guillermo del Toro - all these great filmmakers - actively put themselves back into TV. That's because the environment is very encouraging for bold storytelling, storytelling that you've never seen before. #Quote by Ron Perlman
Television quotes by Alan Arkin
#100. TV has taken reflection out of the human condition. People didn't use to have a ready answer for everything, whether they knew something about it or not. People think they have to have an answer for everything because the guys on TV have an answer for everything. #Quote by Alan Arkin
Television quotes by Michael J. Gelb
#101. Surrounded by noises from televisions, airplanes, subways and automobiles, most of us 'tune out' for self-protection. #Quote by Michael J. Gelb
Television quotes by Steve Allen
#102. If you pray for rain long enough, it eventually does fall. If you pray for floodwaters to abate, they eventually do. The same happens in the absence of prayers. #Quote by Steve Allen
Television quotes by Israel Horovitz
#103. 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
Television quotes by Stephen Fry
#104. What other developed democracy has such a ridiculous and squalid history of intolerance? From the imprisonment and roasting of heretics, witches and poachers, to the censorship of literature, art and television: from St Alban through Wilde, Joyce and Lawrence I think we can point with pride to as grim a catalogue of intemperate, bigoted repression as any nation on earth ... #Quote by Stephen Fry
Television quotes by Dick Cavett
#105. I've actually gotten so I don't associate television with entertainment very much. #Quote by Dick Cavett
Television quotes by David Frost
#106. Over the last half century the television interview has given us some of TV's most heart-stopping and memorable moments. On the surface it is a simple format - two people sitting across from one another having a conversation. But underneath it is often a power struggle - a battle for the psychological advantage. #Quote by David Frost
Television quotes by Fred Armisen
#107. I would really like to do a movie. Schedule-wise I don't know when exactly, but I think it would be great to do a Portlandia movie. Some of my favorite television shows have done it and they've been great. Like Monty Python. I think it would be great. #Quote by Fred Armisen
Television quotes by Conan O'Brien
#108. I think in future people will take television in eyedrop form. All media will be in eyedrops. #Quote by Conan O'Brien
Television quotes by Nolan North
#109. In 'Uncharted,' we do the scenes the same way you would do a film or television show. The motion capture - the performance-capture process - is what makes such a difference for this franchise. So I don't approach it any differently. The other actors and I go in and rehearse scenes together, and then we go in the next day and perform. #Quote by Nolan North
Television quotes by Aldous Huxley
#110. Take one sexually inept wage-slave,'" she went on, "'one dissatisfied female, two or (if preferred) three small television-addicts; marinate in a mixture of Freudism and dilute Christianity; then bottle up tightly in a four-room flat and stew for fifteen years in their own juice. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Television quotes by S.I. Hayakawa
#111. In the age of television, image becomes more important than substance. #Quote by S.I. Hayakawa
Television quotes by Studs Terkel
#112. Having been blacklisted from working in television during the McCarthy era, I know the harm of government using private corporations to intrude into the lives of innocent Americans. When government uses the telephone companies to create massive databases of all our phone calls it has gone too far. #Quote by Studs Terkel
Television quotes by Ted Kotcheff
#113. I have as much artistic freedom in my television work as I have in my films. #Quote by Ted Kotcheff
Television quotes by Jason Winer
#114. You have to move really fast, as a director in television. If you're able to keep things moving on set, everybody has more fun, and when everybody has more fun, the end result is funnier. #Quote by Jason Winer
Television quotes by Rob Lowe
#115. Television is populated with commitment-phobes. #Quote by Rob Lowe
Television quotes by Seth Meyers
#116. The first time I had disposable income, the two things I cared most about were a television and a couch. #Quote by Seth Meyers
Television quotes by George Carlin
#117. I gravitated toward being a funny guy. I liked the radio comedians. I lived in the Golden Age of radio, and the Golden Age of television came along when I was still in my early teens. #Quote by George Carlin
Television quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#118. We are the middle children of history, raised by television to believe that someday we'll be millionaires and movie stars and rock stars, but we won't. And we're just learning this fact, #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Television quotes by Robert Ashley
#119. I don't think there's any heroism anymore. The heroism has to be created out of the medium itself. Going back to the idea of television, all the current heros are sports heros because the medium creates the heros. There's nothing essentially heroic about being a good pitcher. #Quote by Robert Ashley
Television quotes by Mills Lane
#120. It was the economic benefit,You make a comfortable living in public service and you get a fairly comfortable retirement, if you watch your pennies and you're not extravagant. But in television, if a show goes, you make a substantial amount of money. So, economically it just didn't make sense for me not to. #Quote by Mills Lane
Television quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#121. Remember this," Tyler said. "The people you're trying to step on, we're everyone you depend on. We're the people who do your laundry and cook your food and serve your dinner. We make your bed. We guard you while you're asleep. We drive the ambulances. We direct your call. We are cooks and taxi drivers and we know everything about you. We process your insurance claims and credit card charges. We control every part of your life. "We are the middle children of history, raised by television to believe that someday we'll be millionaires and movie stars and rock stars, but we won't. And we're just learning this fact," Tyler said. "So don't fuck with us. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Television quotes by Trevor McDonald
#122. The thing about television is that you can't fake it. Your sense of discovery must be genuine; you can't pretend to be surprised. #Quote by Trevor McDonald
Television quotes by Jeff VanderMeer
#123. a television bomb would instantly blind you with its eruption of images as its icons burned through your flesh and imprinted themselves on your bones in tiny hieroglyphs that recounted the brief history of the body's destruction. #Quote by Jeff VanderMeer
Television quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#124. As recently as the grunge era, there remained a bohemian cachet in casually mentioning that you didn't own a TV. But nobody thinks like that anymore. Today, claiming you don't own a TV simply means you're poor (or maybe depressed). In one ten-year span, high-end television usurped the cultural positions of film, rock, and literary fiction. #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
Television quotes by Jessica Raine
#125. I don't want to sound too bleeding heart, because I know how lucky I've been, but I never knew how hard it was to be the lead in a television show. #Quote by Jessica Raine
Television quotes by Kim Basinger
#126. I never really saw my dad as entertained as when he was just completely blown away by somebody on the television screen or at the movies. I think that's the real reason that I went into acting. #Quote by Kim Basinger
Television quotes by Philip Glenister
#127. There are some very good people in television, but a lot of fools running it. #Quote by Philip Glenister
Television quotes by Jennifer Morrison
#128. When my hair was dark for 'House,' that was the hardest to maintain because it was like every three weeks my light roots would start coming in. And you can't really just dye your hair one color brown because then it looks like a helmet on television, so then I had to have four colors of brown woven into my hair every three weeks. #Quote by Jennifer Morrison
Television quotes by James Lileks
#129. The International Criminal Court, like most international institutions, is a wonderful idea. A noble idea. All it needs to work is planetary government, worldwide democracy and the triumph of reason over tribal loyalties, political doctrines and individual ambition. In other words, it requires that we all live in the world described by the "Star Trek" television shows. #Quote by James Lileks
Television quotes by Greta Gerwig
#130. I don't know. I think I'm sick.
And I don't know if my ailment has a name
- it's just me sitting and staring at the internet or the television for long periods of time interspersed by trying to not do that and then lying about what I've been doing. Then I'll get so excited about something that the excitement overwhelms me and I can't sleep or do anything - and then I just am in love with everything but can't figure out how to make myself work in the world #Quote by Greta Gerwig
Television quotes by T. J. MacGregor
#131. It was Tark's experience that TV addicts were usually addicted to something else as well. Food, booze, drugs, sex, money, take your pick. #Quote by T. J. MacGregor
Television quotes by Linda Ellerbee
#132. Putting people in a room and strapping wires to their wrist to find out if I make them tingle when I'm telling them about Beirut is a long way from Edward R. Murrow. #Quote by Linda Ellerbee
Television quotes by Alan Moore
#133. A choking dry-ice smog of disappointment, pooling in the drops and troughs of suddenly uncertain ground. Mudyards, wit here and there the smoking wrecks of ideologies, their wheels and radios gone. River of litter rustling in a swollen course below the sky's black drag and in the ditches mustard gas, a mulch of sodden colouring books, imploded television sets.

These are the fretful margins of twentieth century, the boomtowns ragged edge, out past the sink estates, the human landfill, where the wheelchair access paving quakes, gives way like sphagnum moss beneath our feet. It's 1999, less like date than like a number we restore to in emergencies. pre-packaged in its national front hunting. It's millennial mummy-wraps. The zeitgeist yawns, as echoing and hollow as the Greenwich dome.

It's April 10th; we find ourselves in red lion square....caught in the crosshairs of geography and time like sitting ducks, held always by surface tension of the instant, by the sensory dazzle. Constant play of light on neural ripples. Fluttering attention pinned to where and when and who we are. The honey-trap of our personal circumstance, of our familiar bodies restless in these chairs. #Quote by Alan Moore
Television quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#134. I remembered a time when my grandmother had asked me to explain television to her - the guts, not the funny pictures. There are things which cannot be taught in ten easy lessons, nor popularized for the masses; they take years of skull sweat. This be treason in an age when ignorance has come into its own and one man's opinion is as good as another's. But there it is. As Star says, the world is what it is - and doesn't forgive ignorance. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Television quotes by Seth Godin
#135. Difference between TV and the internet was how far you sat from the screen. TV was an 8 foot activity, and you were a consumer. The internet was a 16 inch activity, and you participated. I think the sitting down thing is similar. You're not going to buy an armoir while standing on the subway. #Quote by Seth Godin
Television quotes by Charley Pride
#136. Redd Foxx was the same gruff old codger you saw on television. #Quote by Charley Pride
Television quotes by Krzysztof Kieslowski
#137. I wanted to describe the world at the same time, through image, express what I felt. It was the time of the great documentary filmmakers: Richard Leacock, Joris Ivens. Today, television has put an end to this type of filmmaking. #Quote by Krzysztof Kieslowski
Television quotes by Paloma Faith
#138. Anything that's on television as often as someone on 'The X Factor' is what's successful. That doesn't mean that I condone that or think that it's right. To be honest, I'd be the first to say I think it's a shame. But if that's the way it is then that's the way it is. #Quote by Paloma Faith
Television quotes by Gerald McRaney
#139. We're one of the forces that causes actors to fasten seat belts before they take off chasing the bad guy in the car ... or removes some of the cigarette smoking on television. #Quote by Gerald McRaney
Television quotes by Carol Vorderman
#140. After 30 years of television, I want to play more than I used to. #Quote by Carol Vorderman
Television quotes by Rick Moranis
#141. I think that I recall the nostalgic '50s: the start of early television and rock-and-roll, and I think everything seemed to get very generic. Not much has changed. #Quote by Rick Moranis
Television quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#142. Every generation wants to be the last. Every generation hates the next trend in music they can't understand. We hate to give up those reins of our culture. To find our own music playing in elevators. The ballad for our revolution, turned into background music for a television commercial. To find our generation's clothes and hair suddenly retro. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Television quotes by Phil Keoghan
#143. After more than twenty-five years in television, there are days when I feel like I'm just beginning, because I'm learning new things. I want to be better all the time. #Quote by Phil Keoghan
Television quotes by Christopher Bollen
#144. We've come under the influence of television, where in all honesty we can follow a show that could just get cancelled midway through the season and the entire plotline never resolves itself. #Quote by Christopher Bollen
Television quotes by Groucho Marx
#145. I read in the newspapers they are going to have 30 minutes of intellectual stuff on television every Monday from 7:30 to 8. to educate America. They couldn't educate America if they started at 6:30. #Quote by Groucho Marx
Television quotes by Howard Shore
#146. I grew up in repertory theaters, so it was comedy one night, drama the next. I'm used to going from one to the other. And I worked for years in television as well. So, I like the interrelationship of it and having a good relationship with a group of artists creating something really where the sum is greater than all of our individual contributions, our parts. #Quote by Howard Shore
Television quotes by Trey Parker
#147. How many times have you been watching an episode of 'South Park' and thought, 'I'd like to be able to watch this on my television while hooked into my mobile device, which is being controlled by my tablet device which is hooked into my oven, all while sitting in the refrigerator?' #Quote by Trey Parker
Television quotes by Sean Berdy
#148. The deaf community is nearly never portrayed accurately on television/film because most writers never took the time to immerse themselves in the deaf culture before portraying it on television. They also never got to know their deaf actors. #Quote by Sean Berdy
Television quotes by Linda Ellerbee
#149. It's not brain surgery. It's not nuclear physics. It's television. It's only television. #Quote by Linda Ellerbee
Television quotes by Lauren Graham
#150. The thing I don't like on television is when somebody does something that makes absolutely no sense just for the shock of it. #Quote by Lauren Graham
Television quotes by Peter De Vries
#151. My father hated radio and could not wait for television to be invented so he could hate that too. #Quote by Peter De Vries
Television quotes by Carl Sagan
#152. Humans are very good at dreaming, although you'd never know it from your television. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Television quotes by Richard Taylor
#153. 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
Television quotes by Hugh Hewitt
#154. Donald Trump has been practicing the chords of reality politics for 11 years doing reality television. And so he's clearly the frontrunner and he is clearly dominating. But I still believe in some old rules. #Quote by Hugh Hewitt
Television quotes by Jenna Fischer
#155. I studied theater in college, and I really wanted to be an actress and play a lot of different roles. Then I made landing on a television comedy my main focus. #Quote by Jenna Fischer
Television quotes by Walker Percy
#156. I subscribe to Consumer Reports and as a consequence I own a first-class television set, an all but silent air conditioner and a very long lasting deodorant. My armpits never stink. #Quote by Walker Percy
Television quotes by Allyse Near
#157. Once upon a time, Isola Wilde was watching late-night television with her eldest brother, Alejandro, when Channel 12 broadcast a live suicide. #Quote by Allyse Near
Television quotes by Raoul Vaneigem
#158. The millions of human beings who were shot, tortured, starved, treated like animals and made the object of a conspiracy of ridicule, can sleep in peace in their communal graves, for at least the struggle in which they died has enabled their descendants, isolated in their air-conditioned apartments, to believe, on the strength of their daily dose of television, that they are happy and free. The Communards went down, fighting to the last, so that you too could qualify for a Caribbean cruise. #Quote by Raoul Vaneigem
Television quotes by Colin Mochrie
#159. As a kid I watched television 24 hours a day and loved every minute of it. The two shows that always make me laugh and are therefore my favourites are The Dick Van Dyke Show and Fawlty Towers. #Quote by Colin Mochrie
Television quotes by Matt Taibbi
#160. America is ceasing to be a nation, and turning into a giant television show. And this Republican race is our first and most brutal casting call. #Quote by Matt Taibbi
Television quotes by Polly Berrien Berends
#161. We cannot spare our children the influence of harmful values by turning off the television any more than we can keep them home forever or revamp the world before they get there. Merely keeping them in the dark is no protection and, in fact, can make them vulnerable and immature. #Quote by Polly Berrien Berends
Television quotes by Gerry Spence
#162. In America, we have achieved the Orwellian prediction - enslaved, the people have been programmed to love their bondage and are left to clutch only mirage-like images of freedom, its fables and fictions. The new slaves are linked together by vast electronic chains of television that imprison not their bodies but their minds. Their desires are programmed, their tastes manipulated, their values set for them. #Quote by Gerry Spence
Television quotes by Tom Rath
#163. An Australian study of more than 12,000 adults estimated that every single hour spent watching television after the age of 25 decreased the viewer's life expectancy by 22 minutes. #Quote by Tom Rath
Television quotes by The Invisible Committee
#164. We have been expropriated from our own language by television, from our songs by reality TV contests, from our flesh by mass pornography, from our city by the police and from our friends by wage-labor. #Quote by The Invisible Committee
Television quotes by Mohsin Hamid
#165. When the machine of a human being is turned on, it seems to produce a protagonist, just as a television produces an image. I think this protagonist, this self, often recognizes that it is a fictional construct, but it also recognizes that thinking of itself as such might cause it to disintegrate. #Quote by Mohsin Hamid
Television quotes by Laura Bell Bundy
#166. I was kind of going that route with my country music. Indie country. Which would work, if I was playing on Americana stages. Unless I had a television outlet like 'Glee'. #Quote by Laura Bell Bundy
Television quotes by Michael Medved
#167. If we wait for the entertainment industry to change its fundamental values, we may be waiting a long time. But we don't have to wait another day to scale back our own private consumption of television. #Quote by Michael Medved
Television quotes by Ellen Goodman
#168. Even if every program were educational and every advertisement bore the seal of approval of the American Dental Association, we would still have a critical problem. It's not just the programs but the act of watching television hour after hour after hour that's destructive. #Quote by Ellen Goodman
Television quotes by Michael Jai White
#169. My favorite TV couple is Edith and Archie Bunker. Because they were such individuals that I can't imagine anyone else playing them. And I think that Archie was one of the greatest characters ever on television. Even with his flaws, you loved him. #Quote by Michael Jai White
Television quotes by Loretta Young
#170. In 1949 there was a new thing called Television, to which my agency and advisers opposed as a performance medium. #Quote by Loretta Young
Television quotes by Dean Ornish
#171. If I eat mindlessly while watching television, reading, or talking with someone else, I can go through an entire meal without tasting the food, without even noticing that I've been eating. The plate is empty but I didn't enjoy the food - I had all of the calories and little of the pleasure. #Quote by Dean Ornish
Television quotes by Tori Amos
#172. If you think a child is going to be your accessory ... it's not like a micro pig. It's not about putting them in front of the television. You need to read to them at night. #Quote by Tori Amos
Television quotes by Randy Alcorn
#173. By eroding their sense of shame we've made immorality normal, not only in the world but also in the forbidden squadron.
...their new Christian friends recommended some of the movies Fletcher had been wondering if he should now avoid. I was delighted one of them said, "This is a great movie--only one sex scene, and the f-word's only used a few times."
'Titanic' is one of my favorites. How many Christian young people have watched it in their own homes? Think of it, Squaltaint. Suppose someone in the youth group said to the boys, 'There's an attractive girl down the street. Let's get together and go look through her window and watch her undress and lay back on a couch and pose naked from the waist up. Then this girl and her boyfriend will get in a car and have sex--let's get as close as we can and listen to them and watch the windows steam up.'
The strategy would never work. They'd know immediately it was wrong. But you can get them to do exactly the same thing by using a television instead of a window. That's all is takes! Think of it, Squaltaint. Every day Christians across the country, including many squadron leaders, watch women and men undress and commit acts of fornication and adultery the Enemy calls an abomination.
We've made them a bunch of voyeurs! Churches full of peeping toms. #Quote by Randy Alcorn
Television quotes by Timothy Snyder
#174. After Tony [Judt]'s death, in August 2010, I toured to discuss the book we had written together, which he had entitle 'Thinking the Twentieth Century.' I realized as I traveled around the United States that its subject had been forgotten all too well. In hotel rooms, I watched Russian television toy with the traumatic American history of race, suggesting that Barack Obama had been born in Africa. It struck me as odd that the American entertainer Donald Trump picked up the theme not long thereafter. #Quote by Timothy Snyder
Television quotes by Eric Kripke
#175. Television showrunners are a foolishly optimistic bunch. #Quote by Eric Kripke
Television quotes by Bob Woodward
#176. I'm not going to name some of my colleagues who are very well-known for their television presentation, but they wouldn't know new information or how to report a story if it came up and bit them. #Quote by Bob Woodward
Television quotes by J.J. Abrams
#177. The ability of a television series to make adjustments is something you've got to take advantage of. #Quote by J.J. Abrams
Television quotes by Glenn Close
#178. I also have always felt that television has a huge potential for the kinds of audiences that some films would never dream or ever be able to have. So that potential is very exciting to me. #Quote by Glenn Close
Television quotes by Freddy Rodriguez
#179. I'm drawn more to quality, and so if the quality is in television, I go in that direction. If it's in film, I go in that direction. But I don't limit myself or discriminate against any of the mediums. #Quote by Freddy Rodriguez
Television quotes by Monica Ali
#180. We open a book, we turn a newspaper page, we allow the television and the radio to come into our homes. All the things we are told every day - are the true? #Quote by Monica Ali
Television quotes by Daniel Tosh
#181. I have high-definition television, because I felt the lack of resolution was affecting my ability to solve cases on C.S.I. #Quote by Daniel Tosh
Television quotes by Rory Cochrane
#182. I try to enjoy a movie or a television programme just like anybody else. I'd love to be emerged into the story and watch it, but if you work a lot as an actor, in any aspect of the industry, things might arise in a programme that somebody might miss, whereas it might catch your attention. #Quote by Rory Cochrane
Television quotes by E.L. Konigsburg
#183. She was bored with simply being straight-A's Claudia Kincaid. She was tired of arguing about whose turn it was to choose the Sunday night seven-thirty television show, of injustice, and of the monotony of everything. #Quote by E.L. Konigsburg
Television quotes by Jaimie Alexander
#184. Television is competitive now, and the great stories live on television right now. I'm finding that I'm enjoying television more than film, these days. That was my motivation to take a TV show. #Quote by Jaimie Alexander
Television quotes by Steve Erickson
#185. The ritual of families watching TV together passed into antiquity around the time I was my son's age; that was when households tended to have a single television and when the choices of what to watch were manageable. #Quote by Steve Erickson
Television quotes by Steven Spielberg
#186. The internet is watching us now. If they want to. They can see what sites you visit. In the future, television will be watching us, and customizing itself to what it knows about us. The thrilling thing is, that will make us feel we're part of the medium. The scary thing is, we'll lose our right to privacy. An ad will appear in the air around us, talking directly to us. #Quote by Steven Spielberg
Television quotes by Michael J. Fox
#187. I got sick of turning on the TV and seeing my face. #Quote by Michael J. Fox
Television quotes by David Gergen
#188. Ronald Reagan is clearly to television what Franklin Roosevelt was to radio. #Quote by David Gergen
Television quotes by Paul Copperman
#189. Consider what a child misses during the 15, 000 hours (from birth to age seventeen) he spends in front of the TV screen. He is not working in the garage with his father, or in the garden with his mother. He is not doing homework, or reading, or collecting stamps. He is not cleaning his room, washing the supper dishes, or cutting the lawn. He is not listening to a discussion about community politics among his parents and their friends. He is not playing baseball or going fishing, or painting pictures. Exactly what does television offer that is so valuable it can replace these activities that transform an impulsive, self-absorbed child into a critically thinking adult? #Quote by Paul Copperman
Television quotes by Catherynne M Valente
#190. She is sad. She does not speak Japanese. Her husband went to the desert months and months ago. Every day she goes to the market and brings back chocolate, a peach, and a salmon rice-ball for her dinner. She sits and eats and stares at the wall. Sometimes she watches television. Sometimes she walks three miles to Blue Street to look at necklaces in the window that she wishes someone would buy for her. Sometimes she walks along the pier to see the sunken bicycles, pinged into ruin by invisible arrows of battleship-sonar, crusted over with rust and coral. She likes to pet people's dogs as they walk them. That is her whole life. What should she dream of?"
"Something better. #Quote by Catherynne M Valente
Television quotes by Steven Moffat
#191. I think that's the way people absorb television. All the explanations in Doctor Who are there if that's your bag, but they're not essential to your enjoyment of it. An awful lot of storytelling isn't really about making people understand - it's about making people care. #Quote by Steven Moffat
Television quotes by Ann Patchett
#192. The President's unwavering devotion to his television set was so potentially embarrassing his cabinet would gladly have traded it in for an indiscreet mistress. #Quote by Ann Patchett
Television quotes by Jack Jason
#193. Sign language is my first language. English and Spanish are my second languages. I learned Spanish from my grandparents, sign language from my parents, and English from television. #Quote by Jack Jason
Television quotes by Richard Dawkins
#194. It's been suggested that if the super-naturalists really had the powers they claim, they'd win the lottery every week. I prefer to point out that they could also win a Nobel Prize for discovering fundamental physical forces hitherto unknown to science. Either way, why are they wasting their talents doing party turns on television?
By all means let's be open-minded, but not so open-minded that our brains drop out. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Television quotes by Bruce Vilanch
#195. I mean, if they're doing a television show every night like Jon Stewart, or Ellen, or David Letterman, then they have their bunch of people who are sitting on a payroll someplace, who are coming up with material every day of the week. Those are the people who wind up doing the bulk of the work for them when they host the thing, because that's their team. #Quote by Bruce Vilanch
Television quotes by Teresa Medeiros
#196. Others may prefer mindless entertainment, but on Sunday nights, you'll find me parked right in front of my television, munching popcorn and improving my intellect by watching 'Masterpiece Classic.' #Quote by Teresa Medeiros
Television quotes by Lee Greenwood
#197. When I'm through with the Lee Greenwood Theatre, I won't do anything else in entertainment. Maybe I'll become an ambassador for the United States maybe I'll get into television, some news anchoring or something in a major city. Certainly the visibility would interest me a little bit. But someplace that would allow me to sit still certainly. #Quote by Lee Greenwood
Television quotes by Abigail George
#198. Yes, I know that now that there is truth in beauty and beauty in truth. My nature is to be depressive and come out of it and write, and enjoy writing and feeling as if I have a passion and excitement and love and euphoria for it and then I go 'back to sleep again' where I can eat and watch television and not work, not be productive and then just as if a magic switch is turned on I can do it all over again. I don't mind the being depressed part. Sometimes it seems to fuel me. The anger though is gone now that was there in my twenties and even earlier in my youth. Your voice is Tolstoy's, Hemingway's, Updike's, Styron's, Mcewan's, Greene's, Fugard's, Kundera's, Rilke's while I am the incarnate of Radcliffe Hall crossing both genders effortlessly. You betray nothing. There is son in the picture. A small boy but you don't introduce him to me. Obsessions are unhealthy creatures. They make you mentally ill, emotionally unstable; leave you with a chemistry of deep sadness in your life. I have my writing. It keeps me from disintegrating into fractions. I should stop now before I begin to make myself cry. #Quote by Abigail George
