God is a comedian, playing to an audience too afraid to laugh.

Voltaire

It takes generosity to discover the whole through others. If you realize you are only a violin, you can open yourself up to the world by playing your role in the concert.

Jacques Yves Cousteau

We're all just playing our own game. I don't see it as a rivalry. We're just trying to play our best.

Michelle Wie

It's fool's gold if you are winning games and are not playing the right way.

Antonio Davis

I don't remember my mother ever playing with me. And she was a perfectly good mother. But she had to do the laundry and clean the house and do the grocery shopping.

Patricia Heaton

Life is not a matter of holding good cards, but of playing a poor hand well.

Robert Louis Stevenson

I became a better listener than I ever had been as a result of playing Jean Luc Picard because it was one of the things that he does terrifically well.

Patrick Stewart

These young guys are playing checkers. I'm out there playing chess.

Kobe Bryant

Men reach their sexual peak at eighteen. Women reach theirs at thirty-five. Do you get the feeling that God is playing a practical joke?

Rita Rudner

That's the awesome part. Little girls now have a chance to look up and see women playing soccer, basketball, softball and now hockey - and know they can win a gold medal, too.

Angela Ruggiero

I think of life itself now as a wonderful play that I've written for myself, and so my purpose is to have the utmost fun playing my part.

Shirley Maclaine

Big companies are like marching bands. Even if half the band is playing random notes, it still sounds kind of like music. The concealment of failure is built into them.

Doug Coupland

I'm not playing for other people; if I start thinking in those terms I would put too much pressure on myself. I play basketball because that is what I love to do.

Jeremy Lin

I don't meditate before I play or compose, but I see playing and composing as meditative acts.

Steve Swallow

We do not quit playing because we grow old, we grow old because we quit playing.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

When I said I retired from basketball playing, I have retired. You will not see me play again. That is a promise.

Karl Malone

I've always been like that. I was a tomboy when I was a kid, so I was always playing baseball and basketball and football and stuff as a kid with the boys.

Catherine Bell

Punk is musical freedom. It's saying, doing and playing what you want. In Webster's terms, 'nirvana' means freedom from pain, suffering and the external world, and that's pretty close to my definition of Punk Rock.

Kurt Cobain

When politicians use fear, they are playing into the enemy's hand.

John Mellencamp

What comprises good performance? The ability through singing or playing to make the ear conscious of the true content and affect of a composition.

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach

Tennis players we're always playing in center courts that feel like arenas. And when we get on the court and the crowd cheers your name or salutes you - it's like you're a gladiator in the arena. And everyone is cheering - and you're fighting, you're screaming, during your strokes - it feels like you're an animal, fighting for your life.

Novak Djokovic

You don't win tournaments by playing well and thinking poorly.

Lee Westwood

There's something safe about playing a character, but then it's like, 'Who am I underneath it all?'

Emmy Rossum

I hate playing pretty or sane people. Most people are not attractive or all there.

Amy Sedaris

I liked the piano. I always liked playing. I just hated homework.

Mike Shinoda

I have often been asked why I am so fond of playing male parts. As a matter of fact, it is not male parts, but male brains that I prefer.

Sarah Bernhardt

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

George Bernard Shaw

When I started you were more in touch with the people you were playing to. There wasn't the distance or the separation that there is now.

Van Morrison

I think there's a natural chemistry between us as friends; and there's really no separation between the rapport that we feel when we're in conversation and when we're playing music, it's one in the same.

Benny Green

We were playing popular music, but we were doing our own arrangements because we were too lazy to sit down and figure out the originals.

Tommy Shaw

She was good at playing abstract confusion in the same way that a midget is good at being short.

Clive James

I'm not as surprised in going from playing 1,000 seats to 4,000 seats as I was from 100 to 500 seats.

John Mayer

A series of rumors about my attitude, as well as derogatory remarks about myself and my family showed me that the personal resentment of the Detroit general manager toward me would make it impossible for me to continue playing hockey in Detroit.

Ted Lindsay

I could always flip between emotions and be available to suddenly do something new. I think it's a part of playing, and you hang onto it when you're a kid.

Dominic Monaghan

I love playing villains.

Alfred Molina

They changed the floor back to old school. They changed the uniform back to old school. Somebody tell the damn players to start playing like old school.

Karl Malone

I realised quite early on that, although I wasn't trying to make a career speciality of it, I was playing slightly asexual, sociopathic intellectuals.

I've been doing this since I was 10 years old, inhabiting different people and playing different roles.

Steven Wright

We want everybody to act like adults, quit playing games, realize that it's not just my way or the highway.

Barack Obama

My parents had us very young. We lived in a modest house. We built forts, we hiked, we went camping and they wanted us to be independent. It's how children grew up in the 1940s and 50s: outside all the time, playing in the dirt, riding your bike around.

Brooklyn Decker

We're playing the Superbowl this year, we're opening up before the coins drop.

Peter Criss

I don't think that a company should own a studio and the network, and program for their own network. It hurts the creativity - it is not a level playing field.

Scott Bakula

When you play music with someone who has a heart rather than playing with someone who is just doing it for money or is cynical it makes all the difference.

Greg Lake

I'd rather be running the game than playing it.

Steven Brust

If you're playing within your capability, what's the point? If you're not pushing your own technique to its own limits with the risk that it might just crumble at any moment, then you're not really doing your job.

Nigel Kennedy

You jot down ideas, memories, whatever, concerning your real life that somehow parallels the character you're playing, and you incorporate that in your scene work.

Chris Cooper

Men do not quit playing because they grow old; they grow old because they quit playing.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

It's like playing tennis, you play a different rally with different people. Every actor is different and the chemistry between actors is different.

I'm not playing a role. I'm being myself, whatever the hell that is.

Bea Arthur

Football is so barbaric. Sometimes I wonder what I was thinking by playing it. I feel almost like I escaped from boot camp.

Brian Bosworth

It doesn't matter who is playing or how old they are. I just worry about what I can control. It doesn't give me more or less motivation.

Monica Seles

Harpists spend 90 percent of their lives tuning their harps and 10 percent playing out of tune.

Igor Stravinsky

My background playing soccer gave me a natural advantage over many of the American-born players.

Hakeem Olajuwon

Very early in life I became fascinated with the wonders language can achieve. And I began playing with words.

Gwendolyn Brooks

Perfectionism becomes a badge of honor with you playing the part of the suffering hero.

David D. Burns

I'm not playing to prove anything to anybody.

Jeremy Lin

Every day I lugged my backpack through the halls, waiting for the final bell. Then I'd race home and hole up in my room, playing the drums and the piano, composing music.

Josh Groban

Achilles was like a rock star of his day so it made sense to have Brad Pitt playing him.

Wolfgang Petersen

I didn't plan on rock-n-roll. I wanted to learn jazz; I got to know some people doing rock-n-roll with jazz, and I thought I could make some money playing music.

Robby Krieger

I've been in the studio experimenting on making a CD of my own. I'm trying out different producers, styles, sounds. With music, as opposed to acting, you are not playing a character. You are showing people who you are. I really want to have my spirit in it.

Emily Rossum

I love this pedal to death. The only way you could keep me from playing one is by chopping off my legs!

Kirk Hammett

There's not a thing that any of you guys can say bad about me that would hurt my feelings... I'm not coming at you, what I'm saying is that, I'm willing to take that heat for my team, if we're playing well or if we're not playing well.

Vince Carter

I think you have to find the humanity in the character and then the deterioration is a part of the process - the journey of the character. It's like playing King Lear. You can start off as a nice old man who finishes up crazy.

David Wenham

So, through playing with Cop I realized that there is a potentially interested audience out in the world.

Jim Coleman

Comparisons are really no good in sport, especially if it is a comparison between different eras and generations, for there are so many variables that come into play, starting from the quality of the opposition to playing conditions.

Sunil Gavaskar

I enjoy some physical stuff. But if I had a choice between playing a scene where it's raining, it's terribly cold, I'm wet and I'm being drowned and playing a scene with dinosaur eggs in a laboratory, I'd probably take the latter. It's warmer and generally more comfortable!

Sam Neill

I like jazz, but I could never play it. You just sit there with a guitar the size of a Chevy on your chest, wearing a stupid hat, playing the same solo for an hour.

Dave Mustaine

Personally, I would say the 'master' of this whole thing is fate... Whoever is on the playing field is fair game, and it's up to them to avoid being used.

Cliff Burton

I liked playing Morph in Mash and Peas and doing Phil Daniels in the Blur Rock Profile was a giggle too.

Paul Putner

I enjoy playing the game. It's hard for me to just watch it, even while broadcasting.

Lynn Swann

I now want to be playing parts more interesting to me and more exciting to me.

Frank Langella

I enjoy playing the band as the band. I 'be' the whole band and I'm playing the drums, I'm playing the guitar, I'm playing the saxophone. To me, the most wonderful thing about playing music is that.

Chick Corea

I'm tired of the industry, tired of playing the whole game - the dressing up, the red carpet. I hate talking about myself.

Drea De Matteo

I like to grow as an actor, and you can do that by playing parts that are unfamiliar to you and uncomfortable.

David Schwimmer

There were so many great music and political scenes going on in the late '60s in Cambridge. The ratio of guys to girls at Harvard was four to one, so all of those things were playing in my mind.

Bonnie Raitt

I don't care what stage or what reason, as long as we're playing.

Billy Idol

Back then, my idol was Bugs Bunny, because I saw a cartoon of him playing ball - you know, the one where he plays every position himself with nobody else on the field but him? Now that I think of it, Bugs is still my idol. You have to love a ballplayer like that.

Nomar Garciaparra

The photograph, the clothes, the sets - this was about 1974, and I started hanging out with my friend Richard Sold, who was playing in a band with Patti Smith.

Stephen Sprouse

My early influences were the Shadows, who were an English instrumental band. They basically got me into playing and later on I got into blues and jazz players. I liked Clapton when he was with John Mayall. I really liked that period.

Tony Iommi

In horror movies today it's lots of fast cut shot and lots of loud noises on the soundtrack. I tried to do the opposite. Playing with silence for instance.

Alejandro Amenabar

The music field was the first to break down racial barriers, because in order to play together, you have to love the people you are playing with, and if you have any racial inhibitions, you wouldn't be able to do that.

Oscar Peterson

I've made a career over the last seventeen years of mostly playing men in uniform, especially cops. The one thing for an actor that is death, is if you're bored. The boredom will show in your work.

Benjamin Bratt

WIth football you can have up to 28 guys you consider starters, and if they can pick up the slack when some aren't playing so well, you don't have to turn those two game losing streaks into six-game losing streaks.

Tom Brady

Why did I spend all these years playing boring Europeans? I was made for action movies.

Asia Argento

I think that I've still not been successful at playing the role of the retired actor, and I'd like to work on that.

Sean Penn

However, I don't by any means suggest that I'm always playing myself.

Frank Langella

I'm tired of playing the brat.

Casey Affleck

I didn't want to see George Hamilton playing me, I wanted the real thing.

Robert Evans

Hey, look at this guy Kenny G. with his thing, walking up and down the aisles of the concert hall and running off the stage and playing the same time. It's old hat!

Jerome Richardson

I amused myself playing with the journalists.

Brigitte Boisselier

I grew up playing war. We threw dirt and rocks at each other. We'd lead attacks. We'd break up into squads. It became a neighborhood thing for a while, our neighborhood against the other neighborhood. There was always a war breaking out somewhere.

David James Elliott

When I die, just keep playing the records.

Jimi Hendrix

I suddenly realized that comedy, for me, was just being honest, and playing it for real. I've seen so many wonderful actors who turn into creatures from another planet when they're told they are supposed to be playing comedy.

Bea Arthur

We are excited about the music, past and present and future, and are really looking forward to playing.

Graham Nash

I'm 42 and the age of a guy who has kids, so I guess I'm playing right where I'm supposed to be. I'm comfortable with that, but in the same breath I'd do something edgy. If someone came to me and offered me an edgy and funny story, then I'd do it.

Eddie Murphy

I don't see any reason to quit playing. I'll be doing this at least till I get to a hundred and something. You know, I ain't got far to go. But I'm still going to be playing, as long as I have good ideas, and can play as I do.
