„Roger: It’s a little more freedom, sort of, but it’s more work, too, to keep up with all the little things. It’s kinda worth it, I guess; nobody really buys CDs so it really doesn’t matter.“
— Alain-René Lesage French writer 1668 - 1747
Book VII, ch. 4.
„Every man should have a college education in order to show him how little the thing is really worth.“
— Elbert Hubbard American writer, publisher, artist, and philosopher fue el escritor del jarron azul 1856 - 1915
Context: Every man should have a college education in order to show him how little the thing is really worth. The intellectual kings of the earth have seldom been college-bred. Little Journeys to the Homes of Eminent Painters (1899), p. 186.
„I mean, it's very subtle and a little embarrassing to me, but I really believe there are things which nobody would see unless I photographed them.“
— Diane Arbus American photographer and author 1923 - 1971
„"I remember when I was eight, my friends thought it was a little bit unusual that I was going off to Europe or to Asia, and playing concerts. And they would go to Tower (Records) and see my CD out. So that was a little different! But, I guess they've gotten used to it now, and really could not care less," she asserted. "It's nice because most of my friends are not musicians, and it keeps me grounded."“
— Sarah Chang violinist 1980
„Things keep changing and things keep happening. I never really run out of ideas. I guess as long as I'm interested, I'll be interesting.“
— Ellen Goodman American journalist and writer 1941
„"What really is the point of trying to teach anything to anybody?"
This question seemed to provoke a murmur of sympathetic approval from up and down the table.
Richard continued, "What I mean is that if you really want to understand something, the best way is to try and explain it to someone else. That forces you to sort it out in your mind. And the more slow and dim-witted your pupil, the more you have to break things down into more and more simple ideas. And that's really the essence of programming. By the time you've sorted out a complicated idea into little steps that even a stupid machine can deal with, you've learned something about it yourself."“
— Douglas Adams English writer and humorist 1952 - 2001
„I guess that singing is probably a very selfish thing. I guess it doesn't matter what you do. It's selfish in a way 'cause there's satisfaction involved and so. As a singer, you sometimes have to justify your reason for existence in a sort of a way because: what really are you doing for people, they say?“
— Anne Murray Canadian singer 1945
On singing as a job, as quoted in a 1971 CBC interview: "Anne Murray thinks singing is selfish: The Vault", CBC/Radio-Canada, CBC.ca, 14 February 2018 http://www.cbc.ca/player/play/1161696323776
„Roger: Umm.. I don't know! It's kind of um.. a little more.. it's more in the darks of being really singy songy. It's nothing super blazing fast. There's not any super slow reggae kind of thing that we've done before. It's not like that. It's sort of in the tempo and sort of really poppy and really catchy. There's some really good stuff. There are some songs I'm really excited about. It's always been melody based I think. When we did our last record, we wrote like 32 songs and they ended coming out on two separate CDs. And this time we didn't really do that! We kind of just took 15 ideas and used those as the focal point and then we wrote around those and just improved on those 14 and kept bringing things in and out of those songs as opposed to having a whole bunch of songs. Whether that's better or not, I don't know. It definitely seems a bit more focused. We don't have a bunch of extra songs or anything like that. When is was time to actually record, we have everything pretty well sorted and that was cool. There's definitely some good stuff on there.“
— Roger Manganelli American musician 1973
„Everybody's a little more worldly now, and there's more exposure to things. When I made Fun House, back in 1970, nobody wanted to interview me. It was wonderful.“
— Iggy Pop American rock singer-songwriter, musician, and actor 1947
Context: Everybody's a little more worldly now, and there's more exposure to things. When I made Fun House, back in 1970, nobody wanted to interview me. It was wonderful. I was like one of those little white things you find living under rocks, that every once in a while people pull up by mistake and go, "aagh!" But now everybody has a video camera, and that may have changed the nature of "the message from below," as it were.
