quote by Tom Hanks

Growing up in northern California has had a big influence on my love and respect for the outdoors. When I lived in Oakland, we would think nothing of driving to Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz one day and then driving to the foothills of the Sierras the next day.

Memorable Cruz quotations

Most things can be fixed with duct tape and extension cords.

I wanted to be a marine biologist my whole life until I graduated high school.

The only school that let me in was U.

C. Santa Cruz, which is where I went. They didn't have a journalism program, so I took sociology, which is the closest thing to journalism.

I studied at UC Santa Cruz before going on to do a grad program at UCLA.

Santa Cruz was like an awesome hippie summer camp. I got to take a vacation from reality and hang out on beaches and in forests.

I've spent the past month in Washington D.C. and it is terrific to be back in America.

Republicans think that [Ted] Cruz would be like Barry Goldwater.

He'd lose in a landslide and pull the party down with him. They'd lose Senate and House seats.

I dislike Ted Cruz as much as the next everyone.

But that's no reason to be rude to Ted's loving wife and possible hostage.

If you will not stand with Israel, then I will not stand with you

I live in Santa Cruz. I moved here in 1974 and couldn't leave.

It's [Ted] Cruz and [Donald] Trump until the establishment or unless the establishment figures rally around one person. I still think the best person for them to rally around is Chris Christie. Chris Christie would be the most interesting.

Not so subtly putting [Ted] Cruz`s face inside that maple leaf there.

I wanted to be a marine biologist my whole life until I graduated high school.

And even now, I'm still like, 'Maybe I'll just quit the biz and go to Santa Cruz and study marine biology and have my own research center in the Bahamas.' Yeah, I'm sure it would be just that smooth.

Dan Coats, retiring senator from Indiana, a mild-mannered man, a former United States ambassador to Germany, former congressman, said of Ted Cruz he's the most self-centered, narcissistic, pathological liar I have ever seen.And he said, you can quote me on that.

Donald Trump is not the real deal. I think as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio made that very clear.

I believe Marco Rubio is going to win Florida, I think Ted Cruz is going to win his Alamo in Texas. I think old rules apply. John Kasich's going to win Ohio as well.

As one conservative intellectual said to me - he said if the choice is between [Joseph] Stalin and [Adolf] Hitler, I'd pick Stalin, meaning Ted Cruz because he's more predictable. So there's real civil war inside the Republican Party.

Senator [Ted] Cruz is not qualified to be president because he doesn't have the right temperament and acted like a maniac when he arrived in the Senate.

Ted Cruz who`s been gaining on [Donald] Trump in Iowa and is polling ahead of him in the latest Monmouth poll would be quite reluctant to criticize Trump`s plan saying simply it is not his policy.

I think the real, fundamental problem that the Republicans have is, 'How do we get meaner, how do we get nastier with immigrants, so that we can take a smaller group,' now apparently led by Senator Cruz - I mean, maybe he's gonna be the next Speaker of the House. Because it's quite clear that Mr. Boehner has no control over this conference.

I think the guy who gets the least chatter, given how high his chances are of winning the nomination, is Ted Cruz.

the Internet should not operate at the speed of government.

The redwood is the glory of the Coast Range.

I built a global brand Mugler, and we did things that inspired so many people.

I'm proud to have helped some amazing people express themselves in new ways. What I appreciate most in the world is to have met and befriended incredible geniuses, like David Bowie and Cyd Charisse and Celia Cruz, who was the goddess of salsa.

It`s been a long and tumultuous relationship between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz that started off more or less as allies during the Republican primary. As Trump took the early lead in polls, Cruz stuck with the strategy of drafting off of the front-runner waiting for the moment to make his move.
