Yogi Berra – 12 Quotes

 

12 Quotes by Yogi Berra

Zach Braff – 11 Quotes

 

11 Quotes by Zach Braff

 

As a kid who wasn’t into sports, at school I felt almost alienated at times, whereas in the theatre community there was this amazing sense of camaraderie. Early on, we would go to rehearsals with my dad and I was like the mascot for the backstage crew. That was a big part of my childhood, so I dreamed of one day doing a play in London.

– Zach Braff


My mother’s a psychologist, my stepfather’s a psychologist, my stepmother is a therapist and my dad’s a lawyer. So it was all prominent in my life. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t know someone on some form of prescription medicine.

– Zach Braff


I had a very funny family.

– Zach Braff


I’m by no means condemning prescription medicine for mental health. I’ve seen it save a lot of people’s lives.

– Zach Braff


I went to film school and wanted to learn everything there was about making movies.

– Zach Braff


I’m a person who likes these sort of movies… sad but moving ‘art movies’ that normally are at a festival and then they go to a small art house theater and disappear.

– Zach Braff


In theater or movies you see either ‘I’m religious’ or ‘I’m an atheist.’ I’ve never seen too much discussion of ‘I believe there’s a higher power but I’m hesitant to reach out to him because I don’t know if I’m worthy of his attention.’

– Zach Braff


I have a great relationship with my parents. I have not been on lithium.

– Zach Braff

– Zach Braff


I want to take piano lessons, I want to study at university, I want to travel, I want to do other parts, make another movie.

Zoe Kazan – 9 Quotes

 

9 Quotes by Zoe Kazan

– Zoe Kazan

I find playwriting really painful. I love it, or I wouldn’t do it, but I don’t love the theater as much as I love movies.

– Zoe Kazan


I find playwriting to be incredibly difficult compared to screenwriting. Part of it is that I grew up watching movies and not watching plays.

– Zoe Kazan


I grew up in L.A., and I don’t think I’ve seen L.A. onscreen in a way that felt real to me. There are definitely movies, but they are few and far between.

– Zoe Kazan


I love bad movies, whereas going to the theater for me is a painful experience. I think it’s really hard to sit and watch actors do something live and have it not go well.

– Zoe Kazan


I think movies have much more magic than the theater. Theater can be a magical experience, but movies thrust their subjectivity on you in a more profound way.

– Zoe Kazan


Well, I have a sister that I’m very close with, and that relationship is probably the most intense relationship of my life to date, probably of my life, period.

– Zach Galifianakis


My dad doesn’t get any of my jokes. He laughs at them, but he doesn’t understand them. He’s just laughing because people around him are laughing.

Inappropriateness is funny to me. Rudeness is hilarious.

– Zach Galifianakis

– Zach Galifianakis


When I was in high school I used to sit by myself in the cafeteria – not necessarily by choice – but I thought it was funny to talk to people that weren’t there.

We talked about politics constantly in my family growing up in North Carolina. There were always debates. Being of Greek background, it’s in our blood to drink coffee and talk politics.

– Zach Galifianakis


Whether you are on the Right or the Left, everyone can agree that there are a lot of outside influences in American politics that are not good for the system. There’s just too much money.

Yo-Yo Ma – 9 Quotes

 

9 Quotes by Yo-Yo Ma

 

The thing that I’ve always been slightly frustrated with, was that the idea of a CD is kind of confined to a material possession that you can put on a shelf. And the idea of music, for me, is always about both the communication and the sharing of content. And so the interactive part is missing.

– Yo-Yo Ma


Things can fall apart, or threaten to, for many reasons, and then there’s got to be a leap of faith. Ultimately, when you’re at the edge, you have to go forward or backward if you go forward, you have to jump together.

– Yo-Yo Ma


Good things happen when you meet strangers.

– Yo-Yo Ma


I learn something not because I have to, but because I really want to. That’s the same view I have for performing. I’m performing because I really want to, not because I have to bring bread back home.

– Yo-Yo Ma


I love grocery shopping when I’m home. That’s what makes me feel totally normal. I love both the idea of home as in being with my family and friends, and also the idea of exploration. I think those two are probably my great interests.

– Yo-Yo Ma


The role of the musician is to go from concept to full execution. Put another way, it’s to go from understanding the content of something to really learning how to communicate it and make sure it’s well-received and lives in somebody else.

– Yo-Yo Ma


I think there are so many ways to become interested in music. I believe signs of sustained interest gives a sense of the right time. Music, if thought of as a language, would perhaps indicate that as early as possible is not so bad. I do believe that a really nurturing first teacher that makes the child love something is crucial.

– Yo-Yo Ma


My teacher, my great cello teacher Leonard Rose, was such a great cellist, and nurturing man, very patient. But I grew up not only admiring him, but obviously Casals, Rostrotovich, Jacqueline du Pre, and many others, including many of my peers and contemporaries.

– Yo-Yo Ma


One is that you have to take time, lots of time, to let an idea grow from within. The second is that when you sign on to something, there will be issues of trust, deep trust, the way the members of a string quartet have to trust one another.

– Yo-Yo Ma



Zachary Levi – 8 Quotes

 

8 Quotes by Zachary Levi

 

People don’t talk about religion a lot in Hollywood because it’s not an incredibly safe place to do it.

– Zachary Levi


I could probably give you a list of a dozen pet peeves I have about my own physicality and why I couldn’t get a second date.

– Zachary Levi


Films are really cool because, every couple months, or however many times you can get a job because there’s a lot of luck involved in that, you’re playing a different character.

– Zachary Levi


I believe in incentivizing people. If you can incentivize people in anything, whether it’s in politics in life in spirituality in business just take care of folks. Incentivize them and all of a sudden it’s amazing the difference that you’ll see.

– Zachary Levi


I’ll watch a Pixar movie over and over and over again. I’ll be with friends of mine who have kids, that want to watch ‘Finding Nemo,’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah, okay, let’s watch ‘Nemo’ again, for the seven billionth time!,’ because they’re amazing movies.

– Zachary Levi


Being nerdy just means being passionate about something, including everyone – the coolest people on Earth are passionate and therefore nerdy about something whatever it is, whether it’s sports, or gaming, or technology, or fashion, or beauty, or food, or whatever.

– Zachary Levi


There are a lot of people who consider themselves ‘spiritual,’ but that can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. I don’t really talk about it that often, because there’s too much talk in the world. Especially with Christians, there’s more proselytizing than there is actual living proof of it. That’s kind of sad.

– Zachary Levi


‘Aladdin’ was probably my favorite Disney animation when I was a kid. The animation was great and Robin Williams was unbelievable as the Genie. ‘Aladdin’ was an amazing adventure and the lead character was a hero for guys, which I loved. It wasn’t a princess or a girl beating the odds it was a street rat. That seemed really cool to me.

– Zachary Levi

– Youssou N’Dour


I’m a modern Muslim. I pray, and if I have a question, I ask someone who is more educated in the religion than me.

– Youssou N’Dour


In the West, you have always associated the Islamic faith 100 percent with Arab culture. This in itself is a fundamentalist attitude and it is mistaken.

– Youssou N’Dour


I look at my people, and I look at those who control them – the political elite. And the sad thing is that the elites are just not interested in the welfare of the people.

– Youssou N’Dour


I think that Sufism fits all over the world. The concept is not anything that fits standard Western ideas – it’s always related to culture, to music, to religion. It is a dominant religion in Senegal.

– Youssou N’Dour


I think people should know more of Africa in terms of its joie de vivre, its feeling for life. In spite of the images that one knows about Africa – the economic poverty, the corruption – there’s a joy to living and a happiness in community, living together, in community life, which may be missing here in America.

– Youssou N’Dour

You know golf is very lonely. When I’m in the States, I feel like if I just think about Taiwan, my friends, my fans, I won’t feel like I’m alone.

– Yani Tseng


At that time, I feel sad, and I feel no one knows how hard I work and how many tears. They only know the score. At that time, I feel very lonely because no one understands since they haven’t been world No. 1 before.

– Yani Tseng



Zack Snyder – 6 Quotes

 

6 Quotes by Zack Snyder

 

It’s more like Christmas, you know, when you get a shot in that looks great and it’s exactly what you want. It’s a great feeling, and there’s nothing like it.

– Zack Snyder


People always come up to me now and say, ‘Watchmen’ is the best superhero movie ever made.’ I’m always saying ‘That’s super cool. That’s nice of you to say.’ But it happens now, more and more and more than it did when it first came out.

– Zack Snyder


He’s this amazing ambassador for all superheroes. What we’ve made as a film not only examines that but is also an amazing adventure story. It’s been an honor to work on. As a comic book fan, Superman is like the Rosetta Stone of all superheroes.

– Zack Snyder


I always say, I’m certain I changed ‘Watchmen’ less than the Coen brothers changed ‘No Country for Old Men.’ I’m certain of it. But you don’t hear the Cormac McCarthy fans, like, up in arms about it. They should be. It’s like an amazing Pulitzer Prize-winning book.

– Zack Snyder


We tried to approach this as though there’s never been a Superman movie before, but at the same time respecting the canon and mythology. There are the pillars that you have to respect, and I’m not about to break them. But it is fun for me to bend them and mess with them.

– Zack Snyder


It’s interesting now that basically a CG set is the same cost as a real set. So like if you’re going to build a CG house in the suburbs, it costs you $200,000. And if you were going to build it in a computer, it’ll cost you $200,000. It’s the same… the relationship is exactly the same.

– Zack Snyder

The struggle to get weapons is continuous, but the United States will aid us, if it finds Israel displaying a willingness for peace.
