I went through a phase where people would introduce me at parties as a cartoonist, and everybody felt sorry for me. ‘Oh, Matt’s a cartoonist.’ Then people further feeling sorry for me would ask me to draw Garfield. Because I’m a cartoonist, draw Snoopy or Garfield or something.

I’m sorry I can’t speak very coherently.
Syd Barrett
But let’s be clear. We’re talking about a country where there’s no opposition. As leader he can ignore Parliament and – sorry that’s Tony Blair isn’t it? Um, so he doesn’t even have to ask the country before he goes to war – sorry that’s still Tony Blair.
There’s scenes where I really want to get things right, and all the kids know me as the person who says, ‘Sorry.’ I think I’ve gotten a lot better with that, but it’s still the thing that I’m still worried about, trying to get the scene perfect.
Sophia Lillis

Back then I just thought everyone hated me. But no, actually, they’re doing it because they feel bad about themselves. So now when I look at trolls being nasty, I feel a bit sorry for them.

I look to TJ for inspiration in so many ways. One thing I learned from him is not to feel sorry for yourself.
My name is on the door, and I care very much about the design that gets put out. I’m sorry, but it has to be my way. You learn that by working for people like I. M. Pei. You think he isn’t a design tyrant? Is Calvin Klein a tyrant? When it came to his dresses, he had to be.
I have never been sorry to see my sets being struck, provided they are well photographed. They’re not works of art but part of making a film.
Ken Adam

I’m sorry if the following sounds combative and excessively personal, but that’s my general style.
Ian Jackson
Television is an isolating experience, sadly enough. I’m sorry to say it. But as good as it ever gets, it’s still isolating. You sit in your home and visit with no one.
Peter Weller
If I’m president, there are going to be government vans that drive around and pick up people who shouldn’t be wearing certain clothing. Talk about lack of civil rights – I’m sorry, I’m pulling you right off the street, and we’re giving you clothes that you’re going to be O.K. in.
I’m not sorry for who I am.
My mom was practically in the vice principal‘s office all the time! Now I really feel sorry that my mom had to go through such embarrassment, but I was never a harmful person.

Bert Lance
I don’t care about Donald Trump. I mean, God is my president. So I just feel sorry for people it affects, but I don’t care about him.
Love is saying you’re sorry. It’s the opposite of those cherub posters that say, ‘Love is never having to say you’re sorry.’ Wrong! Love is three sorrys a day. If you haven’t met that quota, something’s wrong.
No one leaves the edit room thinking, ‘Yeah, I nailed that one!’ Everyone I know goes into their first premiere or their first screening thinking, ‘I screwed up so bad. I’m sorry, I messed up.’ It’s just a real common feeling.
We should not judge Islam by terrorists. All civilizations and cultures produce terrorists. Every time there is a flag-burning, killing, or provocative films, I’m worried, not because something radical will happen, and this time, some people are killed. We’re very sorry for that.
We’re in a new world. We’re in a world in which the possibility of terrorism, married up with technology, could make us very, very sorry that we didn’t act.
I can get a call at 2 A.M., and the person on the other end is like: ‘Sorry, did I wake you?’ and I’m like: ‘No, I’m wide awake.’
Products are a must – full stop. I’m sorry to say it, but that bob won’t look so sleek on its own – you need a little help. It doesn’t have to be the high-end stuff that they sell in the salon. Products you find in the supermarket are just as good, and sometimes better.
I just want to be myself, and I really, like, can’t say I’m sorry for it. I just can’t.

Jim Sheridan, the MP who wants to ban sketchwriters from the Commons for being rude about politicians, is a blithering idiot. Sorry, scrub that – clearly a very thoughtful person with whom I might conceivably disagree on some marginal issues. A blithering savant, perhaps.

I mean, Iceland is Iceland. It can’t do damage to anybody unless you’re Icelandic. But the United States can drag down the entire western economy. And I think what we are seeing is simply a reflection of reality. This is not, I’m sorry, but this is not a AAA nation.

The makers love to show women being oppressed, and the audience also loves watching these stories. I’m sorry to say, but a large portion of the audience that watches these shows are women.

I’m sorry – I know America is supposed to be the land of the dreams and hopes, but it’s like, when was that actually a real thing?

It would be a sorry world in which corporations engaged in fraud could pull the screen of the First Amendment over any investigation of their scheme.

I am not sorry the CIA went to the edge of the law in the aftermath of 9/11 to prevent further mass-casualty attacks on the U.S.

Sophie Marceau
I feel sorry for people who have to edit me. Which is why book writing is by far the most enjoyable. Really the only thing it’s based on is whether it’s good or not. No book editor, in my experience, is getting a manuscript and try to rewrite it.
I eat very well. I cook for my family every night. We eat a variety of things, including chicken, fish, pork, lentils, all veggies, pastas, and salads. You name it, we eat it – except salmon, which I find disgusting. Sorry, salmon.

William Whipple
People who do not have funny in them are not funny when they read funny lines. Sorry. Just doesn’t work that way. Seriously, this is the biggest rule of all. You live and die with your casting decisions. Your actors are the heart and soul of the whole thing. Without brilliant actors, you will not have a brilliant film.
David Dobkin
This is going to sound strange, but I really didn’t think I would pass 30. I don’t know why or whatever, I just didn’t. That’s a very weird thing to say, I’m sorry. I don’t know. Maybe it’s because I was drinking so much as a youth.
After ‘Star Trek,’ I was the commander on ‘Stargate Atlantis,’ the final season, and once my character had become a good commander, I was sorry that the show didn’t last beyond that.

It may not be proper for me, perhaps, to let my feelings carry me further am therefore resigned to stop here, if sir, you think my particular reasons following too free, or will give offense to the House, which I would be sorry to be thought capable of intending.
Christopher Gadsden
Al Jolson was my first husband. He always used to boast that he was spoiling me for any man who might come after him.

I really feel sorry for society-labelled ‘pretty’ people who have to prove their personalities because no one can believe they bothered to make one based on how they look.
If I could reach down in my heart, I would say I’m sorry for every unkind word and thought I ever had.

I can wholeheartedly apologize for not being at all sorry. And it really is the least I can do.
April Winchell

Bob Einstein
I’m consumed with what I didn’t do. I know I should’ve come out sooner, and I’m sorry for that.
I like coming home because nobody knows who I am. In Cookville, I’m Rich. I’m not a big deal. People like Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, they just can’t live a normal life and you do feel sorry for those guys.
Girls blush, sometimes, because they are alive, half wishing they were dead to save the shame. The sudden blush devours them, neck and brow; They have drawn too near the fire of life, like gnats, and flare up bodily, wings and all. What then? Who’s sorry for a gnat or girl?

If you’re going to do something tonight that you’ll be sorry for tomorrow morning, sleep late.

Oscar de la Renta

No mother wants to hear her son say he’s gay. Those two words rip the picture of a daughter-in-law and grandchildren into pieces.

I am sorry to think that you do not get a man’s most effective criticism until you provoke him. Severe truth is expressed with some bitterness.
I think I felt very alone for a lot of my life, but once I was able to share my story more and more, and people wouldn’t say, ‘Hey, I felt sorry for you,’ but, ‘I get it, and I understand you,’ it kind of encouraged me to tell it more. I just don’t want people to feel alone.
Kids kill a show! It’s, like, a fun concept when the character is pregnant, but then if a show runs for a while, I’m sorry, but it gets annoying when it starts to talk. You get a child actor in there, and unless that child actor is freakin’ awesome, it’s going to be annoying.
A bunch of liberals wanted to outlaw men gazing at women because the gaze was said to objectify women. Sorry, liberals, it can’t be helped among the heterosexual crowd.
