I’ve spent so many years talking about poverty and economic justice, I’m strongly tempted to get biblical. Jesus’ teachings are so radical; they’re just insanely generous and apocalyptic. Christians become more fascinated by the dead Jesus. They don’t like the living Jesus.
My most annoying habit is complaining about my aches and pains. It’s the new ones that I haven’t identified yet that make me nervous. According to my wife, I complain way too much. I may be a borderline hypochondriac, or you could say I am fascinated by the body – at least by mine.
Shakespeare fascinated me. He hardly ever left the country. His imagination was worldwide though reading.
Michael Tippett
We’re all fascinated by the way other people live their lives, how they cope with hardship and triumph, what they put in their home movies and family albums.
I want to fly a jet. I’d love to just be in the air and go mach 3 or mach 4. Or, I’d be an underwater salvager. I’ve always been fascinated with the Bermuda Triangle and Atlantis. I love chemistry, also. That’s why acting is so random for me!
While I circled around and around in my brown rental skates, I studied a group of skaters spinning in the center. I was fascinated! When my mom picked me up, I began a campaign for skating lessons.
Ever since I was a little girl, I have always loved animals and been fascinated with them.
Rich people are so eccentric, and I don’t think people really realize. Especially by the turn of the century, they were living like rappers, and there was no income tax. They are some of the most fascinating people, and I am endlessly fascinated.
Riki Lindhome
I’d read up on the history of our country and I’d become fascinated with the story of the Alamo. To me it represented the fight for freedom, not just in America, but in all countries.
I’ve always been fascinated by the Gold Coast. The homes themselves are spectacular, unlike anything you’ll see other than in Newport, Bar Harbor or Palm Beach. It’s a very special area that, because of local demographics, is not going to survive much longer.
Nelson DeMille
I’ve always been fascinated with Ireland, especially Northern Ireland, having lived in London in the ’80s when there was an Irish republican bombing campaign there.

Bruce Dern was fascinating. He’s an amazing character. If you put him in a room at a table, you will sit there for the next five days and listen to everything he has to say and be fascinated by it. He’s great.
Now I’m president. I get to meet a lot of other company presidents. They’re such weird people. I’m fascinated by them. I use some of them as enemy characters in our games.
I have always been fascinated by Kollywood because of the interesting scripts and genres that they come up with.
I’m not a big crime reader, but I’m reading Michael Connelly’s ‘The Reversal.’ I’m going back to his novels. I’m also reading Keith Richards’ ‘Life.’ I’m always fascinated by the transition from the innocent late ’60s and early ’70s and the youth culture becoming an industry.

I think I am fascinated with slightly tragic characters.
I have always been fascinated by chefs and I make it a point to meet them at all the hotels I visit.

Philip Reeve
I think we’re all fascinated and a little mystified by how the brain works. One of the most mysterious of the physical sciences is neurological science.
Alexis Denisof

Rich Mullins
I’m always fascinated by why a person becomes a writer.
I am fascinated by Omega’s history. Particularly the First World War stuff, when they made watches for the flying corps, and the NASA side of it.
‘Poltergeist’ was really the film that really scarred but fascinated me with puppets and dolls, clowns, and stuff like that. I’ve always been afraid of clowns, and then my fear of puppets came around, and ‘Poltergeist’ was the perfect combination to scare me with a clown doll.
I’m fascinated by furniture design and interiors, and I want to try designing all that stuff.
I was initially just fascinated by the Branch Davidians. This doesn’t really apply to Rachel Koresh because she was born into the church, and that was all she had ever known, but I was fascinated by the psychology of how people get to that place – a place like Mount Carmel and an FBI stand-off for 51 days.
I’ve studied psychology. I’m fascinated by the human mind, and I love people.
Berglind Icey
I have always been fascinated by the way music can completely change the way you watch film – and how you feel as you watch the images.

Katharine Ross
On the one hand, I’m this guy who grew up in the suburbs of New York City to very conservative parents, and the other side of me is fascinated by the peripheries of our culture, maybe because that’s where our culture is most in transition and where there’s likely to be conflict.
