Adopting mannerisms is called mimicry. That is not a good way to do things. You don’t start to imitate somebody, the way he walks and talks, that is a very irrelevant element of acting.
When we talk to God, we’re praying. When God talks to us, we’re schizophrenic.
Jane Wagner

We understand what President Trump means when he talks about taking the country back. He does not see America as a country of people from diverse backgrounds united around values of freedom and respect. In his ‘American carnage‘ version of our country, immigrants and refugees are a threat.
Fame doesn’t make me any different. I am the same man now who grew up in the hard streets of Panama. I am just myself. I always will be. Whoever wants to talks to me, talks to me. Whoever loves me, loves me for who I am.
Roberto Duran
After reading the script I ask the director about my character‘s background, what does he do, how he walks, talks, what clothes he wears… I ask the director how he is looking at it.

Security Council can pass a resolution against Israel!
Yahya Jammeh
The job of the poet is to render the world – to see it and report it without loss, without perversion. No poet ever talks about feelings. Only sentimental people do.
Mark Van Doren
My mom is just authentically herself all the time. She loves herself. She loves her sense of humor. She brings people in when she talks. She brings people in when she laughs.

When one talks about six coaches in four seasons something‘s wrong, something bad’s going on.

I feel like great TED Talks are ones that are a little bit subject to interpretation, that do provoke further conversation – and potentially controversy.
However, I have a low opinion of people with narrow political horizons. Someone who talks about the environment and knows nothing about economics can make as many mistakes as someone who does the opposite.

Everybody always talks about it, about how you don’t know love until you meet your baby, and you really feel that. There are no words. It was a really wonderful surprise. And there is no way to prepare yourself for the sleep deprivation and what comes with it.
In the book of Colossians, it talks about that because of what Christ did, we are pure. We are without judgment on ourselves. And only through him can we do something like this.
I would say things like ‘I am the greatest! I’m pretty! If you talk jive, you’ll drop in five! I float like a butterfly, sting like a bee! I’m pretty!’ When white people heard me talking like this, some said, ‘That black man talks too much. He’s bragging.’
In the original introduction to the word meme in the last chapter of ‘The Selfish Gene,’ I did actually use the metaphor of a ‘virus.’ So when anybody talks about something going viral on the Internet, that is exactly what a meme is, and it looks as though the word has been appropriated for a subset of that.
Almost immediately, I remember right when Tikrit even fell, a few days after Baghdad fell, there was talks of insurgency, there was talks of jihad and of resisting the American occupiers, and slowly this turned into an organized movement.
Farnaz Fassihi
No stranger ever comes up and talks to me. I’m the invisible woman.

Think about ‘GoodFellas’: It could be a textbook on how not to write a screenplay.

That structure is so unusual that you don’t have any sense of what’s going to happen next.
As a serial entrepreneur, angel investor and public company CEO, nothing irks me more than when a startup founder talks about wanting to cash in with an initial public offering.

One always talks of surrendering to nature. There is also such a thing as surrendering to the picture.
Pierre Bonnard
Most of my friends are not actors. Most people have an idea of what an actor’s life is, and it’s pure glamour and excitement: it’s easy and free and everyone loves you. But with a certain level of fame, there’s a real level of paranoia and depression that comes with what you do, that nobody talks about.
I learned to impersonate the kind of person that talks about poetry. It comes from teaching, I think.
I think the good thing about Macklemore is that he is very precise about what he gets involved in. As you can tell, he’s very passionate about what he puts his name on, because he talks about things people don’t usually talk about, and his concepts are very, very passionate.
George W. Bush was a silver spoon dolt with no record to speak of other than bankruptcy and selling tropical plants, and we let him sail into the White House, but Barack talks about religious fundamentalism and guns being prevalent in poor areas, and we roast him for weeks?

I look at Samoa Joe, and I’ve told him a number of times that I see his stuff at ‘NXT’ and think to myself, ‘Man, I could have a great deal of fun with you.’ He’s a guy I have sort of enjoyed, and one of those sleeper guys that no one talks about.
When I started giving talks about women’s history, one of the things that bothered me was the tendency to say, ‘Well, everybody was totally oppressed and suddenly in 1964 we rose up, got our freedom, and here we are.’ It dismisses the women who fought for rights for several hundred years of our history up to that point.
The federal government gets a lot press, and that’s what the media talks about, but your state and local governments, in many ways, have more impact on your life than the federal government does.
Bore, n. A person who talks when you wish him to listen.
Being a medium, a lot of religious people are like, ‘ok. that’s talking to the dead.’ The bible talks about it in a very different context so I think there’s more stigma to being a medium.

The thing about World War II is that everyone knows about the concentration camps in Europe – in Nazi Germany and Poland and Auschwitz and the other camps – but, no one really talks about the camps that were here in the United States.
My wish is to be a catalyst, to push for solutions, to broker peace talks, to ensure accountability, especially for those who committed and are still organizing unspeakable crimes.
Ger Duany
Everybody talks about tariffs as the first thing. Tariffs are the last thing. Tariffs are part of the negotiation. The real trick is going to be increase American exports. Get rid of some of the tariff and non-tariff barriers to American exports.
Reading ‘IT’ again as an adult, you understand it from a different perspective. It is basically a love letter to childhood and talks about all of the treasures of that time, like imagination and belief, that are inevitably lost in adulthood.
Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.
Bollywod films run on the shoulders of its lead actors. The audience goes to watch the actors and talks about the story later. On the contrary, Punjabi films are now running on the shoulders of their stories and content, which is an achievement.
When anyone talks about lucha libre and that style of wrestling, the first person they think of is Mil Mascaras. The other man the true wrestling fan will think of is El Santo. These were the names that came to me when I was growing up.

Let’s face it: Russell Crowe is fat and no one ever talks about it.
I’m not going to be the artist that talks about a million dollar whip and ‘I just bought some red bottoms.’ That’s cool, but that’s not all there is to it. I’d rather talk about something everyone can relate to and feel.
When I hear Donald Trump say the American military is a disaster, I want to go through the screen and shake the guy. We ought to have a commander in chief who talks about our troops with respect and gratitude.
I remember my first scene with Alan Rickman, and I was anxious because he is a slightmethod‘ actor; as soon as he is in his cloak, he walks and talks like Snape – it is quite terrifying. But I really wanted to talk to him because ‘Robin Hood‘ was one of my favourite films.
I usually think to do pep talks on Twitter if I’m on the road, at home and my girlfriend is out of town, or if I’m at home and up later then my girlfriend and our dog Bizzy – like, if they’re both asleep but I’m kind of wired.
Stevie Wonder, he was in a party. They introduced me to him. I didn’t know that he had like a accent… or that is just how he talks. He was real cool. Kinda chopped it up… It was cool, good experience.

A man who is available for lunch, has no wife, is interested in everything, and talks well is socially invaluable.
Usually, when I give talks, I’m 100% there, 100% present.
I look at myself more as a storyteller than a screenwriter, as pretentious as that may sound, but that’s what really attracts me to TED Talks. For me, the really effective ones are being presented by expert storytellers.
I’m obsessed with insects, particularly insect flight. I think the evolution of insect flight is perhaps one of the most important events in the history of life. Without insects, there’d be no flowering plants. Without flowering plants, there would be no clever, fruit-eating primates giving TED Talks.
I have an audience of one, and that’s the Lord. And we’ve had plenty of talks, let me tell you. And I know my heart’s in the right place. And so I just have to stand firm on that.

People who ask us when we will hold talks with Pakistan are perhaps not aware that over the last 55 years, every initiative for a dialogue with Pakistan has invariably come from India.

One of my favorite books was ‘The Book of Immortality‘ by Adam Leith Gollner, which talks about cheating death and life extension and frames with a story that David Copperfield finds a fountain of youth on an island he bought.
Sonnen, to me, he’s a great athlete, but he created that image so much for himself that people don’t think he’s that good. They just think he talks. So I think it’s a risk you run when you do that.
The audience loves when the comedian talks to them. You’re creating inside jokes, which creates a community.
People forget how dominant Public Enemy became in the mid ’80s. No one talks about how transformative they were. And then that led to the ’90s and the sort of East Coast v. West Coast stuff, which is kinda when I came of age.
Gospel talks about life’s struggles, but you always feel like it recognizes these struggles and that you can overcome them.
I think people are understanding that I’m immensely proud of my father. If people talk to me about him, I’ll certainly respond. And there’s a certain generation that still talks about him right off. And I take that with gratefulness and with gratitude.

On a global scale, the way Trump talks about dealing with foreign policy is very scary.

Coming back to Tottenham, you feel confident with these players and the manager – the way he talks to you and wants you to play.
A way a woman walks and talks and moves and behaves is completely connected to how she looks.
DC will always talk. I just found out he just talks. I kind of figured it out. He talks just to hear himself talk. I know he wants to be that guy that’s a big time promoter and all this other stuff, but I think he’s his own biggest cheerleader and his worst promoter for sure.
And when Roger talks about the frightened ones running away from the bombs, I immediately thought of my days when I was young and I had to wear these gas masks.
Gerald Scarfe
Oxfam believes that any global talks to reform tax rules must include all countries, including the poorest.
No one ever talks about the moment you found that you were white. Or the moment you found out you were black. That’s a profound revelation. The minute you find that out, something happens. You have to renegotiate everything.
My dad talks about the times when we’d play backyard cricket: If I got bowled out, I’d just refuse to let go of the bat and swing it at anyone who tried to take it away from me. I like to think that’s been tempered a bit over the years.
On teams that have won championships and got to the big game, there’s a certain vibe and feel in that locker room. Everyone talks about how there’s a brotherhood in that locker room, there’s not a lot of dissent, there’s not guys that go off on their own. It’s a team atmosphere.

Marvel‘s storytelling is much wilder than ‘The OA’s,’ but no one talks about that.
Zidane’s success comes from transmitting calm and never changing that no matter what is happening. That serenity and tranquility conveys confidence and security. He talks little but when he does, it matters.
Myth is a powerful medium because it talks to the emotions and not the head. It moves us into an area of mystery.
‘Talks on the Gita’ is the story of my life, and it is also my message.
The Taliban has not, in my judgment, in any significant way changed their fundamental goal and objective, which is to take over Afghanistan and return to running that country. It doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t have negotiation talks with them. I think we should. But we’ve got to be clear-eyed about it.
Miss Rice talks very tough. We have gotten used to this nonsense. Miss Rice is a bit emotional about this, and we predicted that she would have a more emotional approach to this.
My work in books, films and talks lies almost wholly with children, and I have very little time to give to grown-ups.

If you’re in a meeting and a man talks loudly over you, rather than copying that behaviour and normalising it, what you could do is say ‘Can everybody stop doing this and instead put up a hand when we talk?’
I mean the idea of this is that it’s a good thing for the public to hear interviews like this and that there will be an inevitable amount of fewer interviews if people that the press talks to wind up thinking, well, it’s not really a CBS correspondent.
There are times when I consciously give the character something physical – a walk, the way he sits, how he talks, or his lack of physicality, which is like a physicality.
I treat my cat like she’s my therapist or something, because I talk to her all the time, and as she’s gotten older, she talks back. It’s pretty funny.

What’s funny in ‘The Mayor of MacDougal Street’ is how Dave Van Ronk talks a lot about the time and how exciting it was and how electric it was.

Kiana Tom
I’m a Brit, so I come from a country where in the run-up to a general election, no one talks about abortion.

Gregory Stock
At home, I’m the silliest cornball who talks way too much and wants to be quiet and left alone at the same time.

The way Jughead talks to Archie and vice versa is very much the way I would talk to my twin.

Everyone talks about how the anonymity of the Internet allows people to behave badly, but I think it’s the other way around, that the anonymity removes the ‘self’ from the people we’re talking to online. Other people lose their humanity in our eyes. The system is set up to dehumanize.
Anytime someone talks about your figure constantly, you get nervous; you get really self-conscious.
Money talks, and when it starts to say goodbye, humans listen and act accordingly.
I listen to a lot of TED talks and motivational speakers.
Spending time with Mexican-born writer and director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, you’d never guess that he’s the filmmaker behind a series of movies known as the ‘Death Trilogy.’ The way he dotes on his children and talks about his wife makes it clear that he has a crackling passion for life.
Everyone talks about immigrants taking jobs, but there are a lot of jobs that America needs.
I mean, Joel talks to the actors more than I do and I probably do production stuff a little more than he does.

One guy that I wish was here right now, Ted Williams, helped me so much, our long talks, not about hitting but about fishing, one of Ted’s passions, and I wish he was here today to share this with me because I owe so much to Ted Williams.
Scientology is completely irrelevant to any of the talks that have been given to me.
It seems like whenever a big newspaper or TV show talks about teen literature, they focus on dark books or vampire books. It’s kind of this cliche. It seems like the only time adults pay attention is with that angle.

Nursultan Nazarbayev
If someone has given a hit in the industry, and everyone talks about the song and artist, that’s a hit.

No one ever really talks about the punk-rock involvement in hip-hop, which influenced Afrika Bambaata.
Science will explain how but not why. It talks about what is, not what ought to be. Science is descriptive, not prescriptive; it can tell us about causes but it cannot tell us about purposes. Indeed, science disavows purposes.
History has proved that the most ardent enemies have settled their differences through talks and not war.
I’m a huge fan of Giuliani, as a person. Down-to-earth, talks to you like a human.

I’ve given a lot of talks over the years on the subject of entrepreneurship. The first thing I find I have to do is to dispel the persistent myth that entrepreneurial success is all about innovative thinking and breakthrough ideas.
I look upon meself as… You take a band that’s made up of arms, legs, bodies… I happen to be the piece that talks. And does all that area of it, you know? I’m also very easy to recognize; the darkie in the middle jumping around with the guitar, you know. Dat boy‘s got rhydm!!!
Phil Lynott
When Kobe talks, I shut up and stay out of his way.
Everyone talks about the elusive thing with chemistry. If you have a romance on screen or anything, the first thing you have to do is become friends with the person. It’s not necessarily about falling in love.
Seamus Dever
Everybody who talks about ‘Strictly‘ talks psychobabble. They say they’re going on a journey, or trying to build their confidence, or getting over a divorce or something. People say there must be a deep reason to do these things. But there isn’t! I’m just having fun.
Obama is the rare Democrat who talks easily about faith and values and who does so without upsetting those offended by the mixture of religion and politics.

Hilaire Belloc

Everybody’s gone through some kind of struggle in their life, and I’d like to be the type of voice who talks about it.
It doesn’t matter my size. It’s more a mindset. That’s what people don’t understand. It’s the size the media talks about, but they don’t know my heart.
I’ve already engaged in talks with the textile sector, where we hope to create tens of thousands more jobs.
Arrival‘ talks very little about language and how to precisely dissect a foreign language. It’s more a film on intuition and communication by intuition, the language of intuition.
Nobody talks about housewives anymore! This is what we were supposed to do in the ’50s. Not everybody, but in my milieu. My crowd. You went to college, and you got a degree in case, God forbid, you ever had to work. And you better find somebody to marry while you’re there, because otherwise, what’s going to become of you?
Literally, there is a lot of talk about sparks in the Kabbalah. It talks about when God created the world initially, there was an explosion that happened like a Big Bang but based on vessels and light.

Michael Bisping just speaks to speak; he just talks to talk. He just tries to open his mouth so that something can be heard, but nothing’s going to come out.
The thing that nobody talks about with nurseries is that it’s also about creating a beautiful place for you. You spend so much time there, it needs to be a soft place to land.
I write traditional drama, and the small enclosed communities work well with this form. I enjoy exploring secrets. On small islands, privacy is important, and there are secrets that everyone can guess but nobody talks about.
Ann Cleeves
Blanche talks about aging, and why should she be considered poor, because physical beauty is transitory and fading and she has such richness of the soul. I think that speech is so beautiful, and so telling and so true.
When Napoleon abdicated in April 1814, Britain expected that America would soon lose heart and surrender, too. From then on, London‘s chief aims were to bring a swift conclusion to the war and capture as much territory as possible in order to gain the best advantage in the inevitable peace talks.
When a writer talks about his work, he’s talking about a love affair.
Alfred Kazin
‘Lost Vikings’ and ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Racing‘ were pretty critical games to us. We got some acclaim as a result, some video gaming awards. Those are the games that impressed Davidson and Associates and led to the merger talks.
Nobody talks about the poor. Everybody talks about the middle class and just kinda want to ignore that the poor exist. And you cannot ignore that they exist if you want to help them.
A gentleman never talks about his tailor.
When someone talks about Western films, you probably think of those old black and white cowboy films your granddad likes. But the Western is a wonderful genre because it is usually a story of a lone hero fighting against corruption in a dangerous world.
Caroline Lawrence
Condi Rice talks tough but she cannot be tough herself.
In L.A., unless you’ve just won an Oscar or you’re Mr. Studio Head, no one talks to you. Even at parties.
I want to prove myself and get in talks for a title shot. It’s hard because people don’t want to risk themselves against me.
Everyone just talks about the problems our teenage girls are facing and what they’re dealing with. But there was, to me, a void in how they were being served or helped. I thought, ‘Wow, I’d love to create something.’
Playing in Barca is impressive: they’re in the Champions League; everyone talks about this team. You will not find another club like it in the world.
I love Ric Flair. He’s a great person with me, he talks, texts me, sometimes we have dinner.
I wrote that song ‘Black,’ and it was just this idea that I had been married for 10 years. Everyone talks about ‘happily ever after,’ but there’s so much more to it than that.
I’m not one of those players who talks about things off the field. It’s about what trophies and titles and cups you’ve won.
If you go overseas and meet people, you can detect a Singaporean from across the street – the way he dresses, slightly; the way he talks; the way he acts. There is a persona which is recognizable and which we are proud of.
I don’t disagree with Senator McCain when he talks about the earmark process.
Cardinal Raymond Burke is a 66-year-old guy who lives in Rome, dresses like Queen Elizabeth, and talks like someone who majored in misogyny at some bogus, backwoods, Bible-banging tent school.
I just want to be really clear about this: Anyone who has read Colin Powell’s biography – there’s an entire section where he talks about experiencing segregation. Colin Powell did not appear when he became head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. That’s not how it happened.
Globalisation means many things. At one level, it talks of trade, which since the 16th century has exchanged goods and now, increasingly, ideas and information across the globe. But globalisation is also a view of the world – it is an opinion about man and why men are on the world.
Some folks actually talk a whole lot more than me, so I’m grateful for the people like Cliff Bleszinski. He talks about our games, and Mark Rein talks about our business strategy. I’m the shy programmer myself.
I’ve often thought books give you – put you in a world that you never thought you could go. And I often would say, I don’t need to go to California. Give me a book that talks about California. And I can put it in my head and imagine what it looked like.
Blessed is he who talks in circles, for he shall become a big wheel.
Frank Dane
Returning to England is definitely not in my plans. I had talks with Liverpool, a club I admire a lot, but like I said it’s not in my plans, although life takes many turns.
Initially, I was worried about playing Hansa, because Hansa is someone who talks a lot but does nothing. But after I started playing the character, it was such a relief.

In his new autobiography, ‘Capital Gaines,’ Chip talks about the farm work – and he says he does, in fact, do it himself.

Everybody talks. Anthony Pettis talked before the fight. Donald Cerrone talked before the fight. See what happened?
The Pentagon talks about our power to ‘overkill’ Russia ten times, twenty times, perhaps forty-eight times. For my tax money, it is sufficient to overkill them once.

Catty is not cool. I can’t think of anything less becoming than a man who talks about people behind their backs.
‘The Ways of a Woman in Love’ is one of my very favorite early Johnny Cash songs. I like the way the lyric talks about the character walking by the girl’s house and wishing he was the one in her arms.
My first year in Japan was very tough, just like my first year in the minors. But at least there I had a lot of Dominican people and Latin people I can talk to. If you don’t have anybody to talk to, you can get depressed. But if you find someone who talks your language, it’s easier.
Alfonso Soriano
‘In Another Time‘ talks about our addiction to technology.
You travel across the country, you visit departments, you give talks, you talk about the work at your laboratory – what’s going on, what the opportunities are there – you talk about your own research.

I have healed myself through sharing my birth story as well as others’ stories in my film ‘No Woman, No Cry,’ and in various writings and talks about maternal health.

On television, everyone talks and they don’t care about the mechanics.
Paul Winchell
When Zidane talks to you, you know you are being spoken to by one of the greatest players in the history of the game. He has been there and done it. You never stop learning from him.

Robert Blaha
One of the most comical comments that my ‘Wendy’ watchers said is, ‘She talks too much!’ Duh, I’m a talk show host!

Leonard Lauder

Kurt Student
You don’t talk to Richard Petty unless he talks to you.
If the British government is prepared to say that the Unionists will not have a veto over British government policy and that guns, vetoes and injustices will all be left outside the door, then there is no good reason why talks cannot take place in an appropriate atmosphere.
You sit there waiting for the RED LIGHT to go on. You could be sitting there for five minutes, waiting, while the producer talks to the engineer. Then the light goes on you know that you mustn’t make a mistake for at least 4 minutes.
Jim Sullivan

Prince Andrew
‘I Was There Too’ talks to people who played non-starring roles in big movies. That means the likes of comedian Jimmy Pardo, who didn’t make it to the finished ‘Dreamgirls.’ Still, he recalls that when an actor is put on hold for a movie, he gets paid for two weeks just for sitting at home waiting to be called.
Have very frequent talks with employees because they are your best allies.
The person who talks most of his own virtue is often the least virtuous.

I prefer if friends come over to my office and we talk our heart out over a cup of coffee. I feel that no one talks freely at industry bashes. Everyone has to behave in a certain way, and I think no one is real there. We can’t have heart-to-heart conversations, and I start feeling uncomfortable at such dos.
Either Trump only talks to those who play up to his delusion, or he simply doesn’t listen to those who might burst his bubble. Either way, that is a cause for worry.
I’m not someone who enjoys long talks, long rehearsals. I’m very technical: I tell my actors, you come in, you sit down, you pick up a coffee, you look here, you say the line. We try it with the cameras rolling, and if it doesn’t work, we adjust it until it does. It’s very simple.
It’s funny that everyone talks about Women’s Revolution and I’m the first one to be behind all of them and be with them, but you can’t forget that behind every Women’s Revolution, there was a pack of women before them and before every single generation fought for something.

Nobody talks so constantly about God as those who insist that there is no God.
I am quite surprised, that with all my work, and some of it is very, very good, that nobody talks about The Miracle Worker. We’re talking about Mrs. Robinson. I understand the world… I’m just a little dismayed that people aren’t beyond it yet.
Anne Bancroft

Everybody talks about Bolt. Now they can talk about the ladies who are running some really wonderful times.
Everyone talks about the good old days, when guys were tough and quarterbacks got crushed all the time, but back in the day, there weren’t defensive ends that were Mario Williams – 6-7, 300 pounds, 10 percent body fat, running a 4.7 40.
Border security is a comprehensive issue and doesn’t boil down to a ‘wall‘ or even barriers. Trump knows and recognizes this, which is why he repeatedly talks about all of the aspects and challenges federal immigration officers face.
I do know Joe Lansdale has the most extraordinary voice you’ve ever heard in your life in terms of an accent that, when I started doing it, they had to go, ‘Whoa, we need less.’ But that’s how he talks.

The lonely wanderer, who watches by the seashore the waves that roll between him and his home, talks of cruel facts, material barriers that, just because they are material, and not ideal, shall be the irresistible foes of his longing heart.
Kanye is the best. I’m obsessed with him to the nine. There’s nobody smarter, cooler. I sit for hours talking to him sometimes. There’s nobody more amazing, brilliant, innovative. He talks to me and I leave him and I’m like How am I going to talk to regular people now?
You know it’s funny that none of the regular late-night shows now use guest hosts the way Johnny did. No one talks about it much, but it’s curious that they don’t do it. They would each have to be asked the reason why they don’t.
If the Government can talk to China, which has been infiltrating into our territories and grabbing our land for months now, why should they suspend talks with their own farmers, our own people?
Our talks in Paris tackled economic, democratic, security and political issues; we talked on means for combating terrorism, in addition to latest regional and international developments of mutual interest, especially those in region.

Cliff Stearns talks about what he did to Planned Parenthood, making Solyndra a household name – why didn’t he do this sooner? Why didn’t he see it coming? It’s the oversight committee, not the hindsight committee.
I’m tired of high policy talks. I want to focus on nuts and bolts.
Dave Freudenthal
One of the reasons I think the ultra right-wing has such power in this country is that no one talks out.
