David Anthony Durham

Zac Posen
One of the things that we’re missing from our political dialogue right now is the idea that the United States is a home. It is more than an accounting sheet. It is more than the sum of its G.D.P., its total tax collections, or its total outlays. America is a family.
Stephen Miller

Tom Stoppard
I’m wary about this thing about being in the generation of social networking where people are like, ‘I am my musical taste.’ I am not just a collection of music. Or a collection of movies. I think that’s a thing that people romanticize: ‘Oh my God, she likes this band so she is a dream.’
Zooey Deschanel

Richie Hawtin

Madeleine Peyroux
Don’t try to impress God with your works” or “Don’t attempt to please God with your merits” or “Don’t try to keep the rules and regulations in order to earn your salvation.” He looked around at nearly slumbering collections of utterly casual Christians and wondered, “Who’s trying?

Antonio Damasio
If you’re a film fan, collecting video is sort of like marijuana. Laser discs, they’re definitely cocaine. Film prints are heroin, all right? You’re shooting smack when you start collecting film prints. So, I kinda got into it in a big way, and I’ve got a pretty nice collection I’m real proud of.
Quentin Tarantino
If atheism is to be used to express the state of mind in which God is identified with the unknowable, and theology is pronounced to be a collection of meaningless words about unintelligible chimeras, then I have no doubt, and I think few people doubt.
Leslie Stephen
I’ve got an amazing pair of Miu Miu green-mirrored platforms that I think were from one of their first collections. They’re pretty special. I wore them when I was younger, and I had no idea how precious they were.

Saint Jhn

John Mortimer

Ben Silbermann
Want to come back to the morgue with me after lunch? (Tate) I shudder at the thought of the pickup line you must have used the night you met LaShonda. Come with me, baby, and see my collection of stiffs. (Simone)

Ben Dolnick
I remember the first time I saw a CD, a technology guy brought one to my house and said we will be able to sell millions and millions of players, and people will have to restock their record collections. It was all about money. It was all about how much money we would make, “we” being “him.”
John Mellencamp
I really love to resurrect pieces from my past collections and wear them to fashion week parties.
Nanette Lepore
For a sampler, you could try my short story collection “Wireless”. Which contains one novella that scooped a Locus award, and one that won a Hugo, and covers a range of different styles.

Alain de Benoist
The terminal path may, to distinguish it from internuncial common paths, be called the final common path. The motor nerve to a muscle is a collection of such final common paths.
Charles Scott Sherrington

William S. Burroughs
A lot of my friends have been collectors, and I owe a lot to them. I’m always interested in sharing collections and learning that way. I used to trade tapes a lot. I still have a few friends who I trade music with, but it’s hard to find the time. I miss that.
Michael Dumontier
For me, more than general box-office collections, what really matters is that I am doing something that I enjoy and love.
Varun Dhawan
The U.S. Army cancelled an order for 600,000 black berets that were made in China. It’s not just that they were made by slave laborers. It’s that no soldier can feel good about himself wearing headgear from the Kathie Lee Collection.
Argus Hamilton
Heroin may be bad, but it sure as hell hasn’t hurt my CD collection.
Bill Maher
Museums have these great collections and the reality is they attract a regional audience not a national audience.
Scotty Cameron
Amplifying body-image issues, profiting from anxiety, and employing virtual slaves in sweatshops are bad enough, but the fashion industry is also actively hastening the destruction of the very Earth we walk on. It insists on launching fresh collections each season, declaring yesterday’s range obsolete on a whim.
Charlie Brooker
The haggard aspect of the little old man was wonderfully suited to the place; he might have groped among old churches and tombs and deserted houses and gathered all the spoils with his own hands. There was nothing in the whole collection but was in keeping with himself nothing that looked older or more worn than he.
Charles Dickens
I love men’s clothes better than women’s collections.
Tuesday night I reorganized my record collection. I often do this at periods of emotional stress. There are some people who would find this a pretty dull way to spend an evening, but I’m not one of them. This is my life, and it’s nice to be able to wade in it, immerse your arms in it, touch it.
Nick Hornby
I think the erotic is very spiritual, and I never see that spiritual dimension when you look at collections of erotica. That’s always missing for me.
Sandra Cisneros

Charles Babbage
But there, in that remarkable room, surrounded by a laughing, rollicking, unseeing collection of London’s brightest and wickedest, Pippa’s knowledge of anatomy expanded. It seemed there was such a thing as a broken heart.
Sarah MacLean
One of the issues in electronics is that we work only in two scales – transistors and collections of transistors – and that’s the device. But to take full advantage of nano, we’re going to have to think about that full hierarchy of levels of structure.
George M. Whitesides
A Miscellany is a collection without a natual ordering relation.
John Edensor Littlewood
I’m almost never serious, and I’m always too serious. Too deep, too shallow. Too sensitive, too cold hearted. I’m like a collection of paradoxes.
Ferdinand de Saussure
Where a love of natural beauty has been cultivated, all nature becomes a stupendous gallery, as much superior in form and in coloring to the choicest collections of human art, as the heavens are broader and loftier than the Louvre or the Vatican.
Horace Mann
I wouldn’t include a piece in my collection that I wouldn’t wear personally.
Lauren Conrad
The V&A is an amazing museum, and the collections have always been a great inspiration to me.
Matthew Williamson
An organization’s strategy is simply its plan for success. It’s nothing more than the collection of intentional decisions a company makes to give itself the best chance to thrive and differentiate from competitors.
Patrick Lencioni
A sad fact of life lately at the Museum of Modern Art is that when it comes to group shows of contemporary painting from the collection, the bar has been set pretty low.
Jerry Saltz
A collection of strong-minded individuals who have learned how to dismiss mistakes, disappointments and problems in their personal life make up a strong team. If the majority of the team have that then, as a unit, you are almost impossible to beat.
Gary Neville
History in general is a collection of crimes, follies, and misfortunes among which we have now and then met with a few virtues, and some happy times.
NASA’s training philosophy is “no surprises.” So what they did is put a simulator on Earth where it looks exactly the same as a shuttle toilet and they put a camera down in the bottom of the opening for solid-waste collection, with a light that basically illuminates your asshole.
Mike Mullane
Most of those who make collections of verse or epigram are like men eating cherries or oysters: they choose out the best at first, and end by eating all.
Nicolas Chamfort
In ideal form of social control is an atomised collection of individuals focused on their own narrow concern, lacking the kinds of organisations in which they can gain information, develop and articulate their thoughts, and act constructively to achieve common ends.
Noam Chomsky
Don’t underestimate the importance of having enough room to work. Grilling is much more relaxing when you are not trying to juggle a whole collection of plates and bowls as you do it. If your grill doesn’t have enough workspace – and they almost never do – set up a table right next to your grill.
Bobby Flay
What I can say is that there are some collections that come easily, and others that require more work.
Stefano Gabbana
Yet this is trash that the Church imposes upon the world as the Word of God; this is the collection of lies and contradictions called the Holy Bible! This is the rubbish called Revealed Religion!
Thomas Paine
Great collections of books are subject to certain accidents besides the damp, the worms, and the rats; one not less common is that of the borrowers, not to say a word of the purloiners
Isaac D’Israeli
For a writer, mail is not just a collection of bills and letters and offers to subscribe to Sports Illustrated. It’s an umbilical cord, a connection to the outside world, the giver of pleasure and pain. It shapes the day, is the moment, inexorable as the tide, toward which all the hours rise and fall.
Mameve Medwed
Different cultural and geological references inspire the collection as seen in ancient tribes and tradition.
Lubov Azria
The Bible was written not to satisfy your curiosity but to help you conform to Christ’s image. Not to make you a smarter sinner but to make you like the Saviour. Not to fill your head with a collection of biblicalfacts but to transform your life.
Howard G. Hendricks
I’d love to design my own swim collection for them (VS)… Heidi (Klum) does the lipsticks, I would love to one day do the bikinis.
Marisa Miller
People always ask me how I start a collection, and I tell them that I just look around. What am I tired of? What am I in the mood for? Real fashion change comes from real changes in real life. Everything else is just decoration.
Tom Ford
Thus, words being symbols of ideas, we can collect ideas by collecting words. The fellow who said he tried reading the dictionary but couldn’t get the hang of the story simply missed the point: namely, that it is a collection of short stories.
James Webb Young
I sketch literally all the time; constructing a collection is like building a family – you have to have a certain balance. I isolate myself – I need to be concentrated for this so I leave Paris, I leave to a place without a phone.
Christian Louboutin
The Old Testament is a chronicle of horrors, describing an egocentric collection of supernatural beings who were always doing rotten things to gentle souls like Job
John A. Keel
We sell in Moda Operandi, which, if you don’t know what it is, it’s a beautiful luxury site that does pre-trunk shows for designer collections. We got them to change their algorithm online to go up to a size 24.
Christian Siriano
A diverse and lively collection, the highest art of the interview.
Joyce Carol Oates
What the USA Freedom Act did is it did two things. Number one, it ended the federal government’s bulk collection of phone metadata of millions of law-abiding citizens.
Ted Cruz
The most important publication of WikiLeaks is that it has published more than 10 million documents. The most important single collection of material we have published is the US diplomatic cable series. We started with 251,000 in 2011, but are up to 3 million now and have more coming.
Julian Assange
Each man’s soul is a menagerie where Conscience, the animal-tamer, lives with a collection of wild beasts.
Austin O’Malley
I wanted to do a collection where the narrator is constant throughout, so that there’s a little unity.
Arthur Bradford
I’m reading George Saunders’s story collection, “Tenth of December.” He was my mentor at the University of Syracuse. The stories are mind-blowing like everyone says.
Cheryl Strayed
Radar threw his books into his locker and shut it. Then the din of conversation around us quieted just a bit as he turned his eyes toward the heavens and shouted, “IT IS NOT MY FAULT THAT MY PARENTS OWN THE WORLD’S LARGEST COLLECTION OF BLACK SANTAS.
John Green
I did think reviewers were supposed to be polite about story collections – collections are rather delicate creatures in the literary environment – but not everybody got this memo, I guess.
Lorrie Moore
We are more than a collection of appetites – we are of God.
John Piper
While I enjoy and have enjoyed great success building my own personal apparel and accessories collections, my greatest passion has and will always be real estate.
Ivanka Trump
I don’t believe in doing collections anymore.
Tamara Mellon
Many things embarrass me, but reading isnt one of them. Im not ashamed of my slightly weird collection of prison memoirs. Nor the flaky meditation books. After all, I can pretend I never read those.
Tom Rachman
A lot of designers get caught up in the creativity, but you’ve got to think about the legs of your collection – essentially, how the line is going to move forward.
Alexander Wang
The Nature of Familiar Letters, written, as it were, to the Moment, while the Heart is agitated by Hopes and Fears, on Events undecided, must plead an Excuse for the Bulk of a Collection of this Kind. Mere Facts and Characters might be comprised in a much smaller Compass: But, would they be equally interesting?
Samuel Richardson
Most publishers seem very reluctant to publish short story collections at all; they bring them out in paperback, often disguised as novels.
John Thomas Sladek
Only life suffered can transform a symphony from a collection of notes into a message of humanity.
Dimitris Mitropoulos
A good collection is more than just the sum of its parts.
Tom Peters
I learned by transcribing songs out of the Library of Congress collection in Washington where I was working. I got a job when I just turned twenty in 1939 and Alan [Lomax] needed some help. I listened to hundreds of records every week.
Pete Seeger
Now it is much faster and cheaper to bring thedocument to the user, rather than ask the user to come to the document or collection.
Tom Peters
Good short-story collections, like good record albums, are almost always hit-and-miss affairs – successful if they include three or four great tracks, wildly successful if they have five. And that’s as it should be.
Walter Kirn
I know for a fact that – it’s just the way our biases work now in the industry of literature, but certainly a short story collection does not receive the same kind of attention as a novel.
Junot Diaz
I feel no disgust when I hear the confessions of those near their end, whose wounds are full of maggots…This may give you some idea of my daily work. Picture to yourself a collection of huts with 800 Lepers. No doctor; in fact, as there is no cure, there seems no place for a doctor’s skill.
Father Damien
As the Ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, I have been briefed since 2003 on a highly classified NSA foreign collection program that targeted Al Qaeda. I believe the program is essential to US national security and that its disclosure has damaged critical intelligence capabilities.
Jane Harman
Before I started LimoLand, I mainly bought my clothes in Harlem, where I found clothing my size in fun colors. I still like to go there and see the vibrancy and colors of the neighborhood. I am also very influenced by the colors of my contemporary African and Japanese art collections.
Jean Pigozzi
The museum spreads its surfaces everywhere, and becomes an untitled collection of generalizations that mobilize the eye.
Robert Smithson
I check to look at the collections and love to poke around some of the other fashion blogs to see what’s going on.
Ashley Olsen
A book collection is a cross between a Rorschach test and This Is Y our Life. It marks your life clearly like rings on a tree.
Margo Kaufman
While he bore no real resemblance to anyone in my family, his features were a collection of my mother’s and father’s best attributes, with a few of Gregory Peck’s thrown in.
Lisa Lutz
I do love the ceremony of putting on a record but I don’t have space for a vinyl collection.
Annie E. Clark
The true university of these days is a collection of books.
Thomas Carlyle
I’d probably say to my younger self, get yourself a whole collection of lawyers. Which is what I have now.
Mike Oldfield
The spirit of man is more important than mere physical strength, and the spiritual fiber of a nation than its wealth. The Bible is endorsed by the ages. Our civilization is built upon its words. In no other book is there such a collection of inspired wisdom, reality, and hope.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
I am a completely different person when I am working on different collections.
Karl Lagerfeld
Most teams aren’t teams at all but merely collections of individual relationships with the boss. Each individual vying with the others for power, prestige and position.
Douglas McGregor
I have made revenue collection a frontline institution because it is the one which can emancipate us from begging. If we can get about 22% of GDP we should not need to disturb anybody asking for aid; instead of coming here to bother you, give me this, give me this, I shall come here to greet you, to trade with you.
Yoweri Museveni
The idea that memory is linear is nonsense. What we have in our heads is a collection of frames. As to time itself-can it be linear when all these snatches of other presents exist at once in your mind? A very elusive and tricky concept, time.
Penelope Lively
People hang their hopes on you fitting into their CD collection in way that they have made a space for, but I’m playing a longer game than that.
Liz Phair
My sisters and I are very hands-on with our collections. I am really passionate about kids’ clothes.
Kourtney Kardashian
My next record I really just want it to be a collection of great songs, classic songs in a way.
Marc Almond
I am a collection of dismantled almosts.
Anne Sexton
You don’t value families if you force them to take up a collection to buy body armor for a son or daughter in the service.
John F. Kerry
But I’m interested in the Barnes Collection in Philadelphia. I hear there are some of the worst Matisses there. I like seeing bad art by good artists. It’s inspiring. I’m able to identify with them. It makes them real.
Jemima Kirke
The two offices of memory are collection and distribution.
Samuel Johnson
I am still taking care of the creation of the collection alongside my staff, and my daughter Nathalie Rykiel, is the artistic director of Sonia Rykiel, who takes care of a lot of things. We are very alike and also very close.
Sonia Rykiel
I do have a small collection of traditional SF ideas which I’ve never been able to sell. I’m known as a fantasy writer and neither my agent nor my editors want to risk my brand by jumping genre.
Lynn Abbey
I was watching a collection of vintage ’80s cereal commercials when I paused to wonder why cereal manufacturers no longer included toy prizes inside every box. It was a tragedy, in my opinion. Another sign that civilization was going straight down the tubes.
Ernest Cline
a society driven mainly by selfish individualism has all the potential for sustainability of a collection of angry scorpions in a bottle.
David Ehrenfeld
The users are not going to be in the position of accepting what’s been collected; they’re going to be in the position of being able to demand collection.
Stephen Cambone
We are facing a whole collection of crisis-like developments that we have to watch closely. But we also have to be careful what we point to as crisis indicators.
Wolfgang Schauble
The earliest dictionaries were collections of criminal slang, swapped amongst ne’er-do-wells as a means of evading the authorities or indeed any outsider who might threaten the trade.
Susie Dent
A golf swing is a collection of corrected mistakes.
Carol Mann
You don’t need money to look fabulous. There are so many awesome new designers, so many designers doing collections for mass retailers.
Stacy London
Some couture collections have everything including the kitchen sink! Everything gets thrown on to make it look expensive. I find it grotesque when clothes hit you in the face and there’s no room for fault. But I don’t expect to turn things around all by myself. I’m not a saint.
Alexander McQueen
My father’s record collection was all country. That’s how I was exposed to it.
Keith Urban
Philosophers of science have repeatedly demonstrated that more than one theoretical construction can always be placed upon a given collection of data.
Thomas Kuhn
Fashion is harder than the film industry. You have to constantly be able to crank out hit after hit after hit on demand and on a very tight calendar. I’ve come back, I’ve lost it, I’ve come back again. It’s really as good as your last collection.
Tom Ford
With the traditional six-month lead time on the delivery of international show content, designer collections can be outpaced by the so-called fast fashion chains. H&M, Topshop and Zara, or even Target and J. Crew, would have their versions for sale before the designer looks hit the stores.
Suzy Menkes
Muhammad sets the model for being a good statesman. He also sets the model for being a good warrior, for chivalry, of nobility, of all the things which the Quran and Hadith [The recorded collections of the sayings and traditions of the Prophet] says of treating your enemy with dignity and kindness.
Seyyed Hossein Nasr
The number of maternal deaths is significantly understated because of a lack of effective data collection both in the US and around the world.
Robin Lim
I am a collection of the family’s body parts.
Witold Gombrowicz
You can’t lie to kids about drugs. They know about drugs. You can’t say they’re just all bad. They know life is a little more complicated. I have never done heroin. I would never recommend heroin, but it hasn’t hurt my record collection.
Bill Maher
In the summer, the days were long, stretching into each other. Out of school, everything was on pause and yet happening at the same time, this collection of weeks when anything was possible.
Sarah Dessen
Of course I took something from the [Glee set]. I took my entire shoe collection, that’s all I would ever need.
Alex Newell
My dad has a really great record collection that basically went up to the year I was born: 1984.
Ezra Koenig
Any time I put together a story collection, I don’t know what it’s going to look like overall – or even what the title story is going to be. Over time, I end up with a dozen or so stories, and I start to see a shape to them, how they fit together, and then I write stories that complement or extend that shape.
Brian Evenson
I wasn’t writing stories with the intention of creating a particular collection. I simply wrote stories, and then discovered common themes among a good number of them.
Bonnie Jo Campbell
The music should highlight nuances within a collection. I always discard my initial music selection, but it’s important to get those more obvious ideas on the table, that way you can move on to something more abstract, yet still relevant.
Mia Moretti
To see cartoon-me positioned (alphabetically) amongst so many of my women heroes and role models … well, I just broke down and cried. Happy tears. I surely hope that this one-of-a-kind collection of radical American women reaches the hands of all children who want to grow up and become amazing women.
Kate Bornstein
I’ve got quite a varied iTunes, and I like to raid people’s CD collections and take on their music.
Oliver Sim
I lived in Calcutta for five months in 1999. While I was there, I read many journals, diaries, collections of letters and histories.
Susanna Moore
In my collection, to me at least, the theatre of the past lives again and those long-dead playwrights and actors have in me an enthralled audience of one, and I applaud them across the centuries.
Robertson Davies
You can define a net two ways, depending on your point of view. Normally you would say it is a meshed instrument designed to catch fish. But you could, with no great injury to logic, reverse the image and define the net as a jocular lexicographer once did: he called it a collection of holes tied together with string.
Julian Barnes
My favourite painting is often the one or the collection that I am currently working on. This is probably due to the fact that I don’t yet know where it will take me.
Joseph Pisani
I feel naked without jewelry. If I’m having a bad hair day, I pick something from my huge collection of hats.
Olivia Thirlby
I have a good collection of cookery books. This is not so much because I like cooking, but because I like eating.
Louise Brown
Herein find fiction full of whimsy, wit, hurt, and terror. Wicked, as in wickedly funny, is in the mix, too, along with a prose style both seductive and sly. Any one of Doug Watson’s first collection of stories, The Era of Not Quite, can mend a broken world.
Christine Schutt
Those of us who are in this world to educate-to care for-young children have a special calling: a calling that has very little to do with the collection of expensive possessions but has a lot to do with worth inside of heads and hearts.
Fred Rogers
I’m very interested in the idea of unusual museums, ones that are not necessarily contemporary art museums – more like historical collections or house museums.
Hans-Ulrich Obrist
First let me report that the art in the Barnes Collection has never looked better. My trips to the old Barnes were always amazing, but except on the sunniest days, you could barely see the art. The building always felt pushed beyond its capacity.
Jerry Saltz
Albert Camus was never abandoned by his readers. Camus is enormously read. He’s the highest selling author in the entire Gallimard collection, and has been for some years now. Sales haven’t ever stopped, so to talk about rediscovering him would suggest that he isn’t read anymore and that’s not true.
Catherine Camus
Words are the source of all power. And names are more than just a collection of letters.
Rick Riordan
Never before had she seen such creatures, though they looked much live very large, very shaggy white goats. Thin black horns punctuated the top of their long faces. You look like a collection of grandfathers, she thought, amused.
Tamora Pierce
A Pretty Mouth is a fine and stylish collection that pays homage to the tradition of the weird while blazing its own sinister mark. Tanzer’s debut is as sharp and polished as any I’ve seen.
Laird Barron
The people of the various provinces are strictly forbidden to have in their possession any swords, bows, spears, firearms or other types of arms. The possession of these elements makes difficult the collection of taxes and dues, and tends to permit uprising.
Toyotomi Hideyoshi
I think that with piracy and tighter funds being around, people are realising that the game to play is to try and win people’s respect with bold film making and then win a special place in people’s collections, rather than just having the biggest opening weekends.
Riz Ahmed
History, in spite of the occasional protest of historians, will always be used in a general way as a collection of political and moral precedents.
C. V. Wedgwood
I have equal parts film and digital cameras in my collection. I think that there are ways to Photoshop photos so that they look like you shot them on film, but is that as rewarding? It just depends on the person.
Dianna Agron
My main influences are pop and folk music – Bob Lind, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, the Motown collection, The Zombies, Elliott Smith, and a ton of 70’s AM radio hits. I love powerpop too.
Greta Salpeter
I published, privately, a collection of my serious poetry I had written over the years. I only published 50 copies, which I gave to friends, in a special deluxe edition. It was ridiculously expensive but I’m glad that I did it.
Tom Glazer
As a nation we have, over the past seven years, been rebuilding our intelligence with powerful capabilities that many thought we would no longer need after the Cold War. We have been rebuilding our clandestine service, our satellite and other technical collection, our analytical depth and expertise.
George Tenet
I’m inspired by different cultures around the world and love to incorporate these facets into my collection.
Rachel Roy
It’s rather grisly, isnt it, how soon a living man becomes nothing more than a collection of stocks and bonds and debts and real estate?
John Dos Passos
When I was growing up, I was regularly involved in local activities such as food collections, food kitchens, and other initiatives.
Rex Tillerson
Every time that I wanted to give up, if I saw an interesting textile, print what ever, suddenly I would see a collection.
Anna Sui
You know, many people believe that we archaeologists are just a collection of old fogies digging around in the ruins after old dried up skulls and bones.
Griffin Jay
DAYS THAT I’LL REMEMBER is a lovingly assembled and beautifully written collection of conversations, observations, and memories of music, friendship, and days gone by. It’s good to be back again with John Lennon, his beloved Yoko Ono, and his trusted chronicler and friend Jonathan Cott.
Martin Scorsese
My James Taylor albums sat quite comfortably next to my Rush and Aerosmith collections.
Tim Miller
We are always dying, all the time. That’s what living is; living is dying, little by little. It is a sequenced collection of individualized deaths.
Chuck Klosterman
An impressively researched and documented collection of the finest thought produced by writers throughout the African Diaspora. A magnificent achievement.
Henry Louis Gates
I had three older sisters whose record collections I borrowed, so I was listening to The Velvet Underground as well as Bach and brass band music.
Johann Johannsson
Those who draw their sustenance from science are blessed. It is for me to only derive an occasional pleasure. This is nothing worthy of conceit, but I am indeed touched by the joys. This book is an ode to such joys, a digest of my collections from various sources.
Rabindranath Tagore
Youth is above all a collection of possibilities.
Albert Camus
Although all spiritual teachings originate from the same Source, once they become verbalized and written down they are obviously no more than a collection of words-and a word is nothing more than a signpost.
Eckhart Tolle
On my birthday, I was in Milan for the collections.
Eva Herzigova
A lot of people do talk about the demise of the album, but I still believe that if an artist tries hard to make a great album, people will buy it and listen to it as an album, rather than just a collection of random songs.
The thing is, if you’re a designer, then you want to constantly push yourself and your designs. When we make a new collection, we’re changing shapes, we’re changing patterns. We get a dress on a model, and it’s our first time seeing what the dress really looks like on a woman’s body.
Christian Siriano
Cat lovers can readily be identified. Their clothes always look old and well used. Their sheets look like bath towels, and their bath towels look like a collection of knitting mistakes.
Eric Gurney
When you first assemble a group, it’s not a team right off the bat. It’s only a collection of individuals
Mike Krzyzewski
Then why don’t you and Bubba have girlfriends? (Nick) I don’t want the drama of it. After the last one burnt up all my clothes with my Jack Daniel’s Black Label collection and tried to decapitate me with my CDs, I decided I’d take a hiatus for a bit. (Mark)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
The problem with my balloon collection is that people always think there’s a party. Settle down. It’s not a party. It’s just balloons.
Demetri Martin
I’m interested in other animals too though. There’s the slug in “Mollusks”, and I wrote a story about bees and one about a cat which got thrown out a window by mistake, but those never made it into the collection.
Arthur Bradford
Success in the art world means getting invitations to exhibit in some great places. I had shown in contemporary art museums in Europe, America, New Zealand and Japan. I’d also been asked to curate shows, and had made work to go with my selections from historical collections.
Grayson Perry
A painting is a collection of a series of corrections.
Helen Van Wyk
Thus science must begin with myths, and with the criticism of myths; neither with the collection of observations, nor with the invention of experiments, but with the critical discussion of myths, and of magical techniques and practices.
Karl Popper
There were nude pictures… a lot of it is erotic or sexual. But I don’t view my collection as dirty in any way. I view it as art.
Paul Reubens
I’ve got a great cigar collection – it’s actually not a collection, because that would imply I wasn’t going to smoke every last one of ’em.
Ron White
At the end of the day, I want to create collections that, although I am inspired by very creative women, I want my customer to walk away with a silhouette that she doesn’t even know what collection it comes from. That it just lasts in her wardrobe and makes her feel strong and confident and hopefully happy.
Rachel Roy
I have learned so much making first collection that I am excited to use all of it towards making the next one even better! It’s been an amazing learning curve and experience.
Beth Ditto
I’ve stolen a couple of hearts and they are in my private collection!
Salma Hayek
As music migrates into our iPods, CD collections require less and less room, residing in our heads rather than resounding off the walls. The protracted labor of amassing a personal music library has lost its detective zeal.
James Wolcott
I do remember how sexy my collection was after I first got involved with Stephan [Weiss]. That’s one thing I don’t have in my life now and…if anything, that’s one thing I would love.
Donna Karan
A museum has to renew its collection to be alive, but that does not mean we give on important old works.
David Rockefeller
There’s not too much difference between writing a picture book and writing a collection of a hundred poems or so, except that the bigger books take a lot longer to do.
Jack Prelutsky
I think everyone shares a fear of failure – that you’re only as good as your most recent collection. That’s definitely a fear, but it’s a fear that fuels me, that makes me want to work harder, that makes me take on more challenges.
Alexander Wang
[M]odern society is indeed often, at least in surface appearance, nothing but a collection of strangers, each pursuing his or her own interests under minimal constraints.
Alasdair MacIntyre
My mother was a very big inspiration. She loved fashion. I loved art in school, and I was very good at drawing. I could sit at the table forever and just dream up collections and draw.
Nina Garcia
I don’t listen to music, actually. Obviously I go to clubs; I stand in elevators; a lot of my friends are musicians; I hear music all the time. But I don’t have my own collection of music.
Natalia Kills
The thing with me is I’d rather have my cult following than just have a huge song. I haven’t had one album or one official single release, but I probably got 500 songs out in people’s collection.
Richard Hilfiger
We have to call mass surveillance mass surveillance. We can’t let governments around the world redefine, and sort of weasel their way out of it by saying this is bulk collection.
Edward Snowden
The art galleries of Paris contain the finest collection of frames I ever saw.
Humphry Davy
Hercules used noise! Brass bells! He scared them away with the most horrible sound he could-” said Percy “Percy… Chiron’s collection!
Rick Riordan
When someone walks into my room and goes ‘wow’ at my record collection, at that moment I could actually hate music and just want to go sit in the garden.
Erol Alkan
My sister had her own room. She also had innumerable boyfriends. I had a yo-yo collection that was beyond belief, and the reason I had it was mostly that I would stand in the doorway of the living room watching her and her boyfriend. Finally she caught on how to get this kid out of the way. Give him a yo-yo!
Maurice Sendak
collections are amusing only in the making; afterwards they are like sporting prints without the sport. The sons of collectors inherit only the corpse of their fathers’ satisfied passion.
Marthe Bibesco
Racing is bulging at the seams with pure nutball characters, men who can drink more, screw more, fight more, laugh more, joke more, than practically any collection of people in the world.
Brock Yates
First I have a collection of all of the albums I’ve ever done, on vax.
Gloria Gaynor
I worry very much that people won’t like it, or will think it’s simply silly. But I have a post-it note above my desk that says “What would you do if you weren’t afraid?” And if I weren’t afraid, I would do a poetry collection.
Theodora Goss
If I like a book, I tend to read the author’s entire collection. But I choose mainly through personal recommendations, general word of mouth and book reviews.
Randa Abdel-Fattah
God is found in the collection of Many. . . rather than in the One.
Dan Brown
It is a pity that my collection of trophies contains not a single Russian.
Manfred von Richthofen
For me, wearing a tie is a pleasure, a recherche one but a pleasure nonetheless. You could say that I’m avoiding tie avoidance. My own gorgeous collection runs into hundreds and I buy them the way I buy books – I simply can’t pass a shop. I have loved them since I could spend my own money on them.
Peter York
Character starts with the alphabet. Letters: words: sentences Character is a function of language—a collection of errors and deviations that resonate with certain behaviors. As with every other element in fiction, it is a record of a writer’s decisions.
Noy Holland
America is a great country, and we’ve done a lot of good in the world. But we are a collection of people, not saints. We have our own sins to atone for.
Marianne Williamson
A collection to which nothing can be added and from which nothing can be removed is, in fact, dead!
Sigmund Freud
I have the world’s largest collection of seashells. I keep it on all the beaches of the world… perhaps you’ve seen it.
Steven Wright
All my collections are based on something I like or something I’m dealing with. They are always deeply personal.
Kerby Jean-Raymond
The Bible is such a gargantuan collection of conflicting values that anyone can prove anything from it.
Robert A. Heinlein
All my collections are very personal. It’s also because I’m so involved in making the collections.
Dries van Noten
This group had a kind of dark glamour within the castle. They were a motley collection; a mixture of the weak seeking protection, the ambitious seeking some shared glory, and the thuggish gravitating toward a leader who could show them more refined forms of cruelty.
J. K. Rowling
In The Jack Daniels Sessions, folktales and modern landscapes collide, exploding and reforming in the form of an intriguing and intelligent collection. Cotman seizes the stories of tired tradition and galvanizes them, setting them to dance for us in wonderful, new interpretations.
Cat Rambo
You get the right collection of people together and you get the atmosphere together that it is very free where there is no judgment. If you create an atmosphere that is very open you steer the ship.
Stephen Chbosky
Magic is not science, it is a collection of ways to do things ways that work but often we don’t know why.
Robert A. Heinlein
I’m friends with Carla Olsen and she’s doing a lot of producing these days. She’s getting quite a little collection of records that she’s produced. She’s real busy.
Kathy Valentine
In the same way, I can wake up with a very positive idea of what I want to do for my collection, and be completely desperate at night regarding the same thing. And I do a lot of other things too: Writing for me is almost as important as drawing my collection.
Sonia Rykiel
There is as much difference between a collection of mentally free citizens and a community molded by modern methods of propaganda as there is between a heap of raw materials and a battleship.
Bertrand Russell
The word ‘God’ is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, and religious scripture a collection of honourable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation, no matter how subtle, can (for me) change this.
Albert Einstein
Almost any biographer, if he respects facts, can give us much more than another fact to add to our collection. He can give us the creative fact; the fertile fact; the fact that suggests and engenders.
Virginia Woolf
I designed collections around whatever struck my fancy… fruits, vegetables, politics, or peacocks! I entered in with no business sense.
Lilly Pulitzer
The librarian spoke in a reverential whisper. Corliss knew she’d misjudged this passionate woman. Maybe she dressed poorly, but she was probably great in bed, certainly believed in God and goodness, and kept an illicit collection of overdue library books on her shelves.
Sherman Alexie
Be aware of your infinite connection to your source. Know that you’re more than an encapsulated collection of bones, blood and organs in a skin and hair covered body.
Wayne Dyer
Certainly, it is more reasonable to devote one’s life to women than to postage stamps or old snuff-boxes, even to pictures or statues. But the example of other collections should be a warning to us to diversify, to have not one woman only but several.
Marcel Proust
Since I was a child, my whole life has revolved around music. It’s often while listening to a song that ideas for my fashion collections formed.
Hedi Slimane
A collection of a hundred great brains makes one big fathead.
Carl Jung
I hope that when girls see my clothes, my shoes, or my outrageous jewelry collection, they feel the thrill of wanting more for themselves too. I love what my friend Andre Leon Talley said: “If you are successful, people want to see it. They want to share in your dream”.
Kimora Lee Simmons
A lot of my collections are informed by nostalgia. I think that’s because I loved clothes early on. I remember, at maybe age five, being concerned about what I wore, right down to the underwear.
Jeremy Scott
The possession of a quantity of plants, however good the plants may be themselves and however ample their number, does not make a garden; it only makes a collection. Having got the plants, the great thing is to use them with careful selection and definite intention.
Gertrude Jekyll
New York is the biggest collection of villages in the world.
Alistair Cooke
London is like a collection of hills. There are lots of desirable spots and lots of space in between. The idea of elbowing people out of your way to get somewhere – literally or metaphorically – seems foreign here.
Vestal McIntyre
A meringue is really nothing but a foam. And what is a foam after all, but a big collection of bubbles? And what’s a bubble? It’s basically a very flimsy little latticework of proteins draped with water. We add sugar to this structure, which strengthens it. But things can, and do, go wrong.
Alton Brown
Day is just a collection of hours.
Serj Tankian
The subject matter… is not that collection of solid, static objects extended in space but the life that is lived in the scene that it composes.
Wallace Stevens
I think we’re all fans of Twilight. Being in this Saga, you become a fan. I have the whole DVD collection at home. I put it on every day and watch it at least five times a day. Is that weird?
Peter Facinelli
I think everyone shares a fear of failure-that you’re only as good as your most recent collection.
Alexander Wang
My art collection is dominated by tribal art from Nigeria where I taught school, from New Guinea where we’ve travelled, and by Canadian Haida pieces. My own art is either on exhibition or owned by other people!
Robert Bateman
Your home should tell the story of who you are, and be a collection of what you love brought together under one roof.
Nate Berkus
Most of my early records were not cohesive at all, just collections of demos recorded in different years. ‘Odelay’ was the first time I actually got to go in the studio and record a piece of music in a continuous linear fashion, although that was written over a year.
Creative burnout and physical burnout is real. I mean, there are moments when I get home – after overseeing, you know, almost 16 collections a year – where I can’t move.
Zac Posen
The Web is a vast collection of completely uncontrolled heterogeneous documents.
Larry Page
…in every religion the priest insists on five things –
First: There is a God.
Second: He has made known his will.
Third: He has selected me to explain this message.
Fourth: We will now take up a collection; and
Fifth: Those who fail to subscribe will certainly be damned.
Robert Green Ingersoll
History: a collection of epitaphs.
Elbert Hubbard
In prГЄt-Г -porter now we understandably need to make the collection satisfy the big market more, so couture is extra special.
Riccardo Tisci
I like thinking of the writer as a kind of curator; the collection as curiosity cabinet – in a non-demeaning, non-objectifying sense – but an array, a set of offerings.
Leslie Jamison
The life lessons taught by John Wooden have become legend. Here’s a collection of some of the greatest ‘Woodenisms.’
John Wooden
Avatar’ is the greatest, most comprehensive collection of movie cliches ever assembled, but it’s put together in a brand new way with a new technology, and tremendous imagination, making it a true epic and a kind of a milestone.
Joe Dante
I had a short story collection come out in 2006, and then I couldn’t work on large projects for a long time because I was finishing my doctoral degree.
Theodora Goss
Macy’s has severed ties with Donald Trump and no longer will carry his men’s wear collection. From now on, men who want to look like Donald Trump will have to hunt and kill their own hair piece.
Conan O’Brien
The Bible is a collection of honorable, but primitive legends which are still nevertheless pretty childish.
Albert Einstein
The individual is the true reality of life. A cosmos in himself, he does not exist for the State, nor for that abstraction called “society,” or the “nation,” which is only a collection of individuals.
Emma Goldman
I can see why you like it here,” he said,making a sweeping gesture that encompassed Kyle’s collection of movie posters and science fiction books. “There’s a thin layer of nerd all over everything.” said Jace. “Thanks. I appreciate that.” Simon gave Jace a hard look.
Cassandra Clare
If we mix only a moderate minority share of turds with the raisins each year, probably no one will recognize what will ultimately become a very large collection of turds.
Charlie Munger
My worldview comes from a collection of the books I have read, the people I have met, and my conversations with my dad.
Brian Kilmeade
The entire world is a collection of memoranda that she did exist, and that I have lost her.
Emily Bronte
There are two kinds of people in the world: the kind who alphabetize their record collections, and the kind who don’t.
Sarah Vowell
As I followed him along the sharp black stones, I could hear Link’s voice in my head. “Bad move, man. He’s gonna kill you, stuff you, and add you to his collection of idiots who followed him back to his creepy cave
Kami Garcia
Too often, a vast collection of possessions ends up possessing its owner.
Warren Buffett
We must never lose sight of the fact that shoes go on the feet, and if people can’t walk in them, they are worthless. Fashion designers who are not specialists need the help of technical people. We help decide the collections together.
Diego Della Valle
The first time I looked at Yammer, I thought I was on Facebook. Work is not a social network, with serendipitous communications and photo collections. Work is about managing tasks and responding to things quickly.
Dustin Moskovitz
The paintings by dead men who were poor most of their lives are the most valuable pieces in my collection. And if an artist wants to really jack up the prices of his creations, may I suggest this: suicide.
Kurt Vonnegut
Our society is not a community, but merely a collection of isolated family units.
Valerie Solanas
When I say art influences me, which it does, it’s not at all in a literal form. You go and see exhibitions or collections or meet an artist. It’s all a compilation. Every moment, at all times, all this information. Then all this information disappears, and it shows up later in the process.
Francisco Costa
I start every first draft with voice rather than theme or image or even character as such, so it isn’t like I’m ever rubbing my hands, cackling, “The dad is really going to take it on the chin in this one!” Not in terms of any given story, and certainly not in terms of the collection as a whole.
Roy Kesey
I could write another collection of personal essays from what has happened to me in the last year alone. I don’t seek out my material – it finds me. I am magnetic, somehow.
Augusten Burroughs
When I was quite young I came across a collection of [Franz] Kafka stories and read “The Judgment.” I was just floored by that story. I couldn’t understand it. I still don’t. I’m talking about something I read more than 50 years ago. That story left a little scar on me.
Stephen Greenblatt
Some writers keep a tighter rein on that than others. For short story collections I’m definitely in the loose-rein camp.
Roy Kesey
I still love pop music, I still have a huge pop music collection, and I like that juxtaposition of styles.
One of the most untruthful things possible, you know, is a collection of facts, because they can be made to appear so many different ways.
Karl A. Menninger
We have contributed through Indian culture; so many international collections are Indian-inspired. Why we don’t make an international impact? We have talent, but we have not leveraged it, not married commerce to design.
Priya Sachdev
No lepidopterist’s collection in the entire world…full if iridescent wings, is worth the life of a single butterfly.
Isaac Bashevis Singer
There’s no telling from poem to poem where this brilliant ‘conversation’ about maleness and gender will lead—there are poems about husbands and wives, parents and children, Elvis, Apollo, Walt Whitman, rhythms of its politics. Manthology is a remarkably honest and enormously heartening collection.
Nancy Eimers
I design for a woman who is on the go. Women are busier than ever, and I wanted to design a collection that can go from day to night and be fashionable. Sometimes I wear three outfits in one day.
Giuliana Rancic
This wasn’t the person he’d thought he was, or would have chosen to be if he’d been free to choose, but there was something comforting and liberating about being an actual definite someone, rather than a collection of contradictory potential someones.
Jonathan Franzen
As an artist, you dream about accumulating enough successful music to someday do just one greatest-hits album, but to reach the point where you’re releasing your second collection of hits is beyond belief.
Gloria Estefan
People who have car collections – I never understood that. I always thought that was unnecessary. It’s not beautiful, it’s not creative. It’s just showing how much money you’ve got.
Daniel Radcliffe
Memory works like the collection glass in the Camera obscura: it gathers everything together and therewith produces a far more beautiful picture than was present originally.
Arthur Schopenhauer
You might be a redneck if your beer can collection is considered a tourist attraction in your home town.
Jeff Foxworthy
When we first began and I was 14, my influences were the stuff that was in my parent’s record collection like Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin.
Daniel Johns
Which is why you chose to wear that delightful ensemble from the skank-wear collection at Hoes-n-Thangs?” -Tommy
Christopher Moore
The true church is not an organization controlled by the rules of men but a holy collection of living stones with Jesus Christ as the Cornerstone.
Brother Yun
When I first moved to L.A., I didn’t have a lot of money to join a gym or take classes, so I improvised. My sister and I went to the library and looked over their DVD collection and discovered Neena and Veena, these Egyptian twins who have a whole series of belly dancing routines. We did them all.
AnnaLynne McCord
Each of us carries within himself a collection of instant insults.
Haim Ginott
My dad went to medical school, and when he studied he listened to music so he has a ridiculous CD collection. That was always something we had growing up from him; there was always good music playing at the house.
William Clark Green
I like ‘Elle’ magazine. I love things online, like when all the big brands have a fashion show, I like to see the new collections.
There’s more to be learned here [St. Andrews] about course design than anywhere. Collection bunkers, false fronts, bump shots. The fundamentals of design became fundamental because of what’s here. And it happened accidentally. Or maybe accidentally on purpose.
Jack Nicklaus
Back in the day you wanted your albums to have a theme, and ‘Sports’ theme was really a collection of singles. It was really a record for its time.
Huey Lewis
I supported to reduce oil consumption in California by 50 percent, 50 percent in the next 15 years. They didn`t even bother to show up.
Jerry Brown
My ideas for the next collection always happen a couple of months before the show. I have learned to shut up and not bother my assistants with it.
Raf Simons
There’s so many people to see. So many people to check up on and add to your collection.
Elvis Costello
To me, you can’t have style without being inspired. When I design a collection, I am inspired by so many things. The color of a flower. The shape of a butterly’s wing. The juxtaposition of an old tenement building next to a shiny new skyscraper.
Isaac Mizrahi
You can’t learn how to be elegant; you can only learn how to avoid mistakes. The rest is instinct. Elegance is about the way you cross your legs, not the label or the newest clothes from the latest collection.
Carine Roitfeld
Hey! Who stole my collection of used bandages?! And they also got away with my nude pictures of Ernest Borgnine!
George Carlin
I’ve been asking myself: ‘Why put together these things – CDs, albums?’ The answer I came up with is, well, sometimes it’s artistically viable. It’s not just a random collection of songs. Sometimes the songs have a common thread, even if it’s not obvious or even conscious on the artists’ part.
David Byrne
We must leave the entire collection of conditioned thought behind and let ourselves be led by the inner thread of silence into the unknown, beyond where all paths end, to that place where we go innocently or not at all, not once but continually.
I don’t really have a domestic inclination. Even my apartment has a semblance of a storage facility. It’s just stacks, there are no bookshelves, just books and piles of stamp collections and weird little sewing and knitting projects.
Sufjan Stevens
Order and surprise: these are two intertwined elements that make for any great library or collection.
Michael Dirda
The collection is a labor of love and devotion, and whenever I found free time from my journalism work, I’d work on one story or another, or at least sketch out my characters, and research various issues related to my characters’ dilemmas.
Andrew Lam
A library is never complete. That’s the joy of it. We are always seeking one more book to add to our collection.
Catherynne M. Valente
A collection of huts surrounded by a barbed wire fence, and in the huts lived 500 of the original inhabitants of our area. And so it went with many country towns around Australia.
Phillip Noyce
Some couture collections have everything including the kitchen sink! Everything gets thrown on to make it look expensive.
Alexander McQueen
I was the kind of kid who liked omnivorously almost all kinds of science – rock collections, fossils – and I like leaves, I like plants, and I like biology.
Sandra Faber
Black, white and nude are my essential colors. Each time I start a collection, I start with these colors; they are the elemental colors we refer to from the beginning.
Narciso Rodriguez
Today’s Democrats are little more than a collection of narrow interest groups-unions, tort lawyers, minorities headed by an ossified leadership. They are clever, tenacious and increasingly nasty in defending their perks, as establishments typically are.
Robert L. Bartley
Almost every collection I do has 200 different references. I don’t have two of the same coat, two of the same dress. I have it in one color, in one fabric. I’ve tried to adapt the culture of couture, and the know-how and the heritage, but I try to update it.
Alber Elbaz
It would be very easy for us to do a collection that everybody would like and not criticize. But criticism is a part of life. You have to take it.
Donatella Versace
A novel is not a summary of its plot but a collection of instances, of luminous specific details that take us in the direction of the unsaid and unseen.
Charles Baxter
Life doesn’t have plots and subplots and denouements. It’s just a big collection of loose ends and dangling threads that never get explained.
Grant Morrison
No I or individual is better than the team. I’ve scored no goals just on my own. Every goal I’ve ever scored has been because of someone else on my team, their excellence, their bravery. And I’m kind of the end product of a collection of a really good vibe, and feeling, and creativity on the field.
Abby Wambach
The self is the class (not the collection) of the experiences (or autopsychological states). The self does not belong to the expression of the basic experience, but is constructed only on a very high level.
Rudolf Carnap
An enterprise is a community of human beings, not a collection of “human resources”.
Henry Mintzberg
Gender inequality is not one problem, it’s a collection of problems.
Amartya Sen
I’m so in awe of what visual artists do and I do understand the differences of what visual artists do. I have a small art collection I hope to expand.
Lena Dunham
At Age 11, I used to listen to Madonna’s Immaculate Collection every day
Amy Winehouse
Just the idea that we, these little collections of atoms and molecules, are part of the world, but a part that can look at the rest of the world and figure it out in a self-referential way, is kind of breathtaking.
Sean M. Carroll
I published my first book in 1982 – a collection of Irish folklore called Irish Folk & Fairy Tales. It is still in print today. My first young adult book was published a couple of years later, and I’ve been writing in both genres ever since.
Michael Scott
NASA should be at the forefront in the collection of scientific evidence and debunking the current hysteria over human-caused, or Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW). Unfortunately, it is becoming just another agency caught up in the politics of global warming, or worse, politicized science.
Walter Cunningham
Tantric Buddhism is just a collection of things that work by doing them. And sometimes we add new things. We have electronic music; we did not have it in Tibet.
Frederick Lenz
He doesn’t have to love your CD collection. He doesn’t have to love your shoes. But any good, mature guy better make an attempt to love your friends and family—especially when they’re great.
Greg Behrendt
Now I existed solely thanks to the quantum paradox, my brain a collection of qubits in quantum superposition, encoding truths and memories, imagination and irrationality in opposing, contradictory states that existed and didn’t exist, all at the same time.
Robin Wasserman
But the universe, as a collection of finite things, presents itself as a kind of island situated in a pure vacuity to which time, regarded as a series of mutually exclusive moments, is nothing and does nothing.
Muhammad Iqbal
The cookbooks I value the most in my collection are the ones where you hear the author’s voice and point-of-view in every recipe.
Anthony Bourdain
Morandi suggests we are all single in this world, hoping for independent repose. But our best opportunity for a community of excellence depends upon a collection of enlightened individuals.
Wayne Thiebaud
The Koran is a not ‘a product of Muhammad or even of Arabia,’ but a collection of earlier Judeo-Christian liturgical materials stitched together to meet the needs of a later age…A few scholars go even further, doubting even the existence of Muhammad.
Daniel Pipes
My collection of historical fashion consists of about 10,000 pieces – dresses and accessories, from 18th century to today. The main focus was initially Russian fashion, but now I have extended it to the whole European continent.
Alexander Vassiliev
There are endless planes of attention, endless realities and endless mind states. They’re like collections of atoms and protons and neutrons, nuclei. They just go on forever. They’re plasma, they’re fluid … they’re alive.
Frederick Lenz
Style is about fun. True style is not about having a closet full of expensive and beautiful things – it is instead about knowing when, where, and how to utilize your collection.
Nina Garcia
Collections aren’t really planned. I just keep writing short pieces until I have enough for a collection.
Lydia Davis
I listened to the radio, so I was influenced by everyone from Michael Jackson to Milli Vanilli. But thankfully my dad had a collection of Cat Stevens albums while my mom was listening to jazz.
Jason Mraz
I think I have more stamps in my passport than most stamp collectors have in their collections.
John Rhys-Davies
I’ve enjoyed photography, ever since I was a teenager, and I’m still at it. I’ve had shows in various cities, around the country, and I have a number of pieces in permanent collections in museums that I’m very proud of.
Leonard Nimoy
I might do a film someday for the collection. I love designing sets and creating environments, in film school and for my own presentations. I love telling stories.
Pamela Love
Pardon the plug, but what I like most about Toronto is Metro Morning’s audience. I think it’s got to be the most multi-faceted, multi-lingual, omni-curious collection of plugged-in people I’ve ever encountered.
Andy Barrie
I’m really into rocks. I have a really serious rock collection. Rocks and feathers and shells and strange found things in nature. I have a lot of those kinds of collections.
Brit Marling
The Grimm collections were never intended for children. Not because kids were excluded, but because the division we make today of children’s literature didn’t exist then. The idea of protecting children from tales with violence didn’t occur until the earlier part of the 19th century.
Jack Zipes
After twenty years and thirty stories, thirteen pieces were finally selected and the collection was born. So far, the blurbs from [authors] Maxine Hong Kingston, Gish Jen, Robert Olen Butler, Oscar Hijuelos and others, have been most encouraging.
Andrew Lam
The universe is a communion of subjects, not a collection of objects.
Thomas Berry
The Winnipeg Art Gallery has a good collection of Inuit art, and most of what I’ve seen I’ve seen there or in the few books I have. I should spend more time researching.
Neil Farber
When I design a collection I strive to make a woman feel as special as the delicate creation she is wearing; take her to an enchanted time and place where women are princesses and magnificent goddesses. In today’s modern world we need to pause and indulge in beauty.
Claire Pettibone
Well, Bradbury’s a genius. Fahrenheit 451 is one of my favorite books of all time, and The Illustrated Man as a collection of short stories ranks up there. When you read it you realize how influential it is on so many other stories and people.
Zack Snyder
Oh, yeah, I love DVD’s. I don’t have what you’d call an extensive collection, maybe a couple of hundred or so. But I have something on almost all the time.
David Fincher
Each season I strive to design a forward-thinking and effortless collection with a very clean minimalist aesthetic.
Francisco Costa
A store is just a collection of content. The Steam store is this very safe, boring entertainment experience. Nobody says, ‘I’m going to play the Steam store now.’
Gabe Newell
When I’m drawing, I’m drawing with the light, being completely open and creative. I can’t draw in the evening. I need light and I need warmth if it is a summer thing, and I need cold if it is a winter collection. The good thing is that I have houses to go to whenever I’m working. I draw according to the place.
Christian Louboutin
What I enjoy doing more than anything is, I have my little antique car collection, and when the weather is pretty I like to get out one of my old cars. I have a little route I run down in the country, down Nachez Trace Parkway. The loop down through there is just really relaxing, not much traffic.
Alan Jackson
I love the fact that H&M has created a new phenomenon in fashion through the pioneering concept of collaborating with high-end designers to create one-off limited-edition capsule collections. I am thrilled that my creations for H&M will be accessible to – and hopefully enjoyed by – so many people around the world.
Matthew Williamson
I remind myself of Einstein’s remark that common sense is nothing but a collection of misconceptions acquired by age 18.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
My first collection of poems was published by Bloodaxe Books, which was then a very new imprint.
Helen Dunmore
A collection of plants is not a landscape, any more than a list of choice words is a poem. The merit is in the design, not the material it is expressed in, and the best designs, like the best poems, make ordinary material significant by its arrangement.
Nan Fairbrother
I keep only a small edit in my wardrobe because I think it is important to keep things moving through, and I like to find out which pieces from my collections work and which could be reworked and improved.
Alice Temperley
I love theatrical props: a cup filled with solid fake tea, say, or a collection of fake food, including a rubber turkey, which, during the holidays, I wrap in tinfoil so it appears to have just come out of the oven.
Amy Sedaris
Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It’s about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.
BrenГ© Brown
A great product isn’t just a collection of features. It’s how it all works together.
Tim Cook
You are being suffocated by tradition… Why don’t you say, ‘I am going to build a life for myself, for my time, and make it a work of art’? Your life isn’t a work of art —it’s a thirdhand Victorian whatnot shelf, complete with someone else’s collection of seashells and hand-carved elephants.
Kurt Vonnegut
To many, mathematics is a collection of theorems. For me, mathematics is a collection of examples; a theorem is a statement about a collection of examples and the purpose of proving theorems is to classify and explain the examples.
John B. Conway
Science is built up with facts, as a house is with stones. But a collection of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house.
Henri Poincare
Every collection reflects the ideas andvalues and interests of the individual or group who developed the collection.
Tom Peters
I don’t spend a lot of money on clothes, which is weird because I am a fashion model, but when it comes to the new collections coming out, I am just praying designers send it to me for free.
Irina Shayk
Instagram is my favorite! It’s interactive and a fun way to stay connected to my friends, family and fans. I love posting photos from family trips, property visits, previews of my collections, everything!
Ivanka Trump
It’s interesting to see how some of the womenswear designers that we have long worked with at Net-A-Porter are developing menswear collections – Christopher Kane, Jonathan Saunders and Richard Nicoll.
Natalie Massenet
The Black Mamba collection of watches is me: It is my alter ego, so to speak. As I mentioned before, it is sharp, cutting edge and sleek which are characteristics I try to apply when I’m out there on the basketball court.
Kobe Bryant
Larger school library collections and longer hours increase circulation.
Stephen D. Krashen
Everyone has their parent’s [music] collection which is strongly influences what you listen to as a kid. You have no choice. You have to listen to whatever they’re bumpin. I grew up with what they listened to a lot.
Ryan Lewis
If you take something out of the freezer, it’s cold, but what happens when it melts? It’s a cool party, a cool person, a cool collection. What does that mean? I’m more interested in things that are uncool, things that have a certain individuality, a certain soul, a certain longevity, emotion, fragility.
Alber Elbaz
I didn’t come to Hollywood to get on magazine covers or start my Porsche collection or to enjoy that kind of lifestyle, to go to the right parties and meet the right people.
Wentworth Miller
Yeah, I’m thinking it’s a reunion or, since it is our classmates, a collection of idiots. Let’s call it a meese. Like geese, only with morons. (Caleb)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
We remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. We are and forever will be the United States of America.
Barack Obama
A collection of masks, depicting historical figures in life and what I like to call the eternal repose.
Wes Craven
Going to the Huntington gardens and libraries was radically important for me. They have one of the best collections of 18th- and 19th-century British portraiture that you can imagine in Southern California. One doesn’t think about Southern California as being the capital of great art.
Kehinde Wiley
I’ve never had a huge collection of records; I’ve never been a beat digga.
The rich bought wonderful clothes you recognized. The richest had their pople go to Paris and buy the entire new collection that no one outside of the fashion house has seen.
Cassandra Clare
I’m always the one on the carpet that will be wearing something that nobody else will pick from the collection. I feel like I have some style soul sisters out there, like Diane Kruger and Zoe Saldana, they feel very much kindred spirits when it comes to style.
Jaime King
I have too much product, and I’m trying to rein it in and sell more of my main collection. I wish you didn’t have to design so often; it would be good if you could keep on selling the same things for a few years and not have to do new things all the time.
Vivienne Westwood
I love reference books, especially collections of memorable quotations, almanacs, and atlases. Facts to me are like candy or popcorn – small, tasty delights – and I like to gorge on them now and then.
Walter Kirn
It is the tragedy of other people that they are to us merely showcases for the very perishable collections of our own mind.
Marcel Proust
Depending on the season, between 20 and 30 percent of my collections contain some sort of eco or sustainable element, whether it’s a beautiful organic fabric or a natural dye. And obviously I don’t use animal skins or fur of any kind.
Stella McCartney
As far as preference between fall and spring collections, I have none that I prefer to design. With fall you have a lot more items, but of course I am from the Dominican Republic, so I love the warm weather.
Oscar de la Renta
Visible Faith is an expression of my Christian faith which must be visible to be real! I gave the name to the collection of musicians who worked with me on the record.
Ken Hensley
I’m always fighting either to have a house work with us or to head a house. It’s a lifestyle I can totally see: the future, modern Versailles, modern Versace, modern Calabasas, paparazzi, celebrity language. I just want to build a collection that’s around me and my wife and my kids.
Kanye West
My favorite books to give or get are short story collections. And always paperbacks because they are easy to carry as you travel.
Chuck Palahniuk
Every day of my adult life, I have worn at least one piece of jewelry from my maternal grandmother’s collection, all of which were manufactured by famed Danish silversmith Georg Jensen. To the naked eye, I am either a Jensen loyalist or a grandmother loyalist. Really I am just a Pretty Things loyalist.
Sloane Crosley
Lizzie Harris’s debut collection, Stop Wanting, crafts images and lines of such arresting splendor that I am very often driven to joy at the feats of beauty and healing that language is capable of bringing into being.
Tracy K. Smith
The Destiny of Man is to unite, not to divide. If you keep on dividing you end up as a collection of monkeys throwing nuts at each other out of separate trees.
T. H. White
I would just sketch everything that was being made for the collections.
Stephen Sprouse
Great armies are nothing but a collection of weakness.
Christina, Queen of Sweden
Well, my own men’s collection always felt very free back in the days before Jil. Once you make it this kind of dialogue with other people, with a fashion show and clients and whatever, it becomes something else. Free meets not so free.
Raf Simons
There is no history worthy attention save that of free nations; the history of nations under the sway of despotism is no more than a collection of anecdotes.
Nicolas Chamfort
I love collections of things, but always in moderation.
Sandy Gallin
What really matters is not how well a character fits a definition, but how strongly he or she resonates. Characters with strong, resonant ideas at their core will have more of an impact on the cultural consciousness than a character who’s just an empty collection of attributes.
Kurt Busiek
There is a sense that science and politics are incompatible. I don’t think so at all. I think it’s important that scientists take great pains to make sure that ideology and personal bias and wishful thinking do not contaminate the collection and analysis and evidence.
Rush D. Holt, Jr.
Audiences don’t come to theatres going by reviews. Even if a film is rated low, the collections won’t get affected.
Akkineni Nagarjuna
A good life is a collection of happy memories.
Denis Waitley
Today, if you were to look at my CD collection, it might scare some people.
Gretchen Wilson
I’m not sure what I am anymore… Sometimes I think I’m nothing but what other people have done to me―a big collection of brainwashing, surgeries, and cures… That, and all the mistakes I’ve made. All the people I’ve disappointed.
Scott Westerfeld
For a while I was collecting Satan and devil stuff – you know, anything that had to do with old Beelzebub or Lucifer. But I had to put the brakes on it, because there’s a lot of stuff out there, and the collection was just growing too quickly.
Kirk Hammett
The rest of my work, besides sketching and keeping a diary, which was the most troublesome of all, consisted in making geological and zoological collections.
John Hanning Speke
My mind seems to have become a kind of machine for grinding general laws out of large collections of facts.
Charles Darwin
Sometimes when I speak to groups or I’m interviewed by a journalist, I ask them to imagine their communities without Girl Scouts – to imagine the thousands of food drives and clothing and toy collections that would never take place if not for Girl Scouts.
Anna Maria Chavez
I have a lot of different collections of cards at home. It’s hard to say my favorite deck, but there is a deck called the medicine cards, and it’s Native American animal cards.
Valerie June
In the psalms, we have a collection of 150 prayers that were inspired originally by the Holy Ghost. If you want to know how God is pleased and honored in prayer, why not immerse yourself in the prayers that he himself has inspired?
R. C. Sproul
More than print and ink, a newspaper is a collection of fierce individualists who somehow manage to perform the astounding daily miracle of merging their own personalities under the discipline of the deadline and retain the flavor of their own minds in print.
Arthur Ochs Sulzberger
Doing collections, doing fashion is like a non-stop dialogue.
Karl Lagerfeld
Life is a musical influence in my experience. But as far as actual music and actual bands, uh, I’ll just look at my little collection here. Let’s see. Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, U2, The Talking Heads, Prince and the Revolution, Michael Jackson’s Thriller was a huge one.
Jeremy Enigk
Life is but a collection of habits.
Ida Tarbell
Winnipeg has the largest collection of Inuit art in the world, I believe. They can be quite simple in a great way and often have sparse backgrounds and isolated characters. They often have a really great look to them.
Marcel Dzama
They are works of art that can be considered works of artВ but don’t have to be in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum.
Michael Heizer
I’m always very interested in breeding. Raising cacti is breeding. My lotus plant collection is breeding. The insects are breeding.
Takashi Murakami
There are rhythmic ideas which sometimes only work up to a point. In writing there are moments when it just comes off the page, it’s not just a collection of notes.
Harrison Birtwistle
Church tax exemption means that we all drop our money in the collection boxes, whether we go to church or not and whether we are interested in the church or not. It is systematic and complete robbery, from which none of us escapes.
E. Haldeman-Julius
I’d make my whole collection with just one square of fabric. I wouldn’t do anything else; everything had to be made from one square. This is just one example.
Rei Kawakubo
My bedroom was my executive office. Buyers came to my apartment and that’s where they saw the collections.
Kenneth Cole
It’s our job as curators to open up Hampton Court to visitors, and to look after the buildings and collections for the future.
Lucy Worsley
We usually start by asking the collaborators to submit a couple of ideas. Then, Larry and I will sort through all the submissions and choose the ones based on what we think will add most to the collection. Once the scripts are written, the stages are: rehearse, record, edit, sound design, foley and finally, the mix.
Glenn McQuaid
I woke up one day and I was like, “I don’t have anything to save for myself for the future.” That’s when I started archiving things. I take four or five things that are really key to each collection, and I restore them or, in some cases, remake parts of them, and archive them.
Jason Wu
You become an expert by working hard. We’ve got fantastic museums, collections and antique shows. You can go and just start looking. That’s the great thing about knowledge. If you collect Doulton figures, you know about the rare ones.
Judith Miller
A wonderful story collection set between one place and another and shaped by a fearless sense of comedy.
W. G. Sebald
Lots of the time, we just think of the Bible as history or life lessons or poetry or – unfortunately – a collection of ‘thou shall’ and ‘thou shalt nots!’ All those elements are part of Scripture.
Jennifer Rothschild
My love is a thousand French poets puking black blood on your Cure CD collection.
Henry Rollins
There’s nothing wrong with having a collection, but it becomes a problem when it overwhelms your space. When you’re not displaying it properly, you’re not enjoying it and it turns into clutter.
Niecy Nash
Cincinnati has one of the most diverse animal collections in the world, with more than 500 species represented. They also have a really good insect exhibit.
Newt Gingrich
I have the largest private collection in the world [of Hollywood memorabilia].
Debbie Reynolds
These small shows were decidedly a success. The exhibitions were not too large to be seen easily. It was not an effort, as larger collections of pictures usually are.
Childe Hassam
I want to write a play. I’d like to do an original musical. I should probably put together a poetry collection.
Neil Gaiman
An Active mind didn’t need distraction in its physical environment. It needed a collection of outstanding books and a good lamp. Maybe some cheese and crackers.
J.R. Ward
There’s a lot of work that goes into it – if you think about how many collections a year that Karl Lagerfeld has to do, with Chanel and all the other things he does – you can’t do that unless you are working 18 hours a day. It’s really a lot of hard, hard work.
Penelope Cruz
The red library is Sui’s tribute to fashion maven Diana Vreeland, who served as editor for Harper’s Bazaar (1939-1962) and Vogue (1963-1961). My most precious collection is my bound Vogue magazines, .. and they’re kind of like my Bible. I look at them all the time when I’m trying to inspire myself for a collection.
Anna Sui
My pictures are not that interesting, nor the subject matter. They are simply a collection of facts; my book is more like a collection of Ready-mades.
Edward Ruscha
[On her use of quotations:] When a thing has been said so well that it could not be said better, why paraphrase it? Hence my writing, is, if not a cabinet of fossils, a kind of collection of flies in amber.
Marianne Moore
I felt my design point of view was more welcomed in New York, that I could show my collections in the way I wanted to show them.
Jenny Packham
My very first book was a games collection of Anatoly Karpov. On the whole I was attracted by positonal play with some tactics, and already then I was aiming for universality.
Vladimir Kramnik
I have lots of records, quite a collection, actually, that I stole from my mom. I have the original ‘Thriller’ album and I have a really great ‘Elton John’s Greatest Hits,’ and I also have a N.E.R.D. album. Records sound more original. They have more edge.
Elisha Cuthbert
It’s no good pretending that any relationship has a future if your record collections disagree violently or if your favorite films wouldn’t even speak to each other if they met at a party.
Nick Hornby
The customer moved on long before the industry reacted to what she wanted. She doesn’t want to buy things four months in advance, she wants to buy something today and wear it tomorrow. She cares less about seasons and collections and really what she’s looking for is price, quality, and convenience.
Tamara Mellon
I have some weak poems in that new collection, which is why I’m not ready to send the collection out yet.
Shirley Geok-lin Lim
I did this whole series on the buffalo soldiers-on black soldiers-I did another series on black cowboys, and I presented myself to the gallery system, and all these people with these massive collections didn’t know there were black cowboys or black soldiers. I ended up hitting a niche I didn’t know was there.
Ed Dwight
The older you get, the more you have to talk about, and music is a really good outlet. I’ve chilled on it a little bit, and I can’t wait to see what I’m going to step into, now that I have this collection of things.
Selena Gomez
I had this fantastic collection of Grateful Dead T-shirts and live concert music the band had give me over all these years, decades of material, and when our boys became teenagers they started going through everything and wearing the shirts and listening to the music and that’s what the Grateful Dead is all about.
Bill Walton
I’m honored and thankful to be partnering with the prestigious CFDA as one of the men’s wear ambassadors for fashion week. My interest in fashion is only matched by my love for music, and I’m blessed to be given an opportunity to learn about some of my favorite designers from a firsthand look at their latest collections.
J Balvin
I don’t think bulk data collection was an enormous factor here, because generally, that deals with overseas calls to the United States. But what bulk data collection did was make the process more efficient. So there were no silver bullets there.
Michael Leiter
I think we’ve made the collection haystack so big, no one’s ever getting through the haystack to find the needle. What we really need to do is isolate the haystack into a group of suspicious people and spend enormous resources looking at suspicious people, people who we have probable cause.
Rand Paul
I’m passionate and I travel the world not just as a tourist but to understand cultures… I’ve lived with Masai tribe… I travel the world and bring it back in the form of a research book that would become the starting point for the collection.
John Galliano
Every man, and every body of men on earth, possesses the right of self-government. They receive it with their being from the hand of nature. Individuals exercise it by their single will; collections of men by that of their majority; for the law of the majority is the natural law of every society of men.
Thomas Jefferson
For everyday, Rebecca Minkoff’s collection is chic and comfortable at the same time.
Shay Mitchell
The collection under my name is an exciting opportunity to really express my own aesthetic and connect with a very different consumer.
Reed Krakoff
There’s so much more work that goes into developing a makeup line than one would imagine. Personally, I like to be involved in the entire creative process – everything from art direction, collection concepts, formula testing, packaging artwork, to naming the shades and also the marketing side of things.
Kat Von D
Industry is not a collection of machines and tools and buildings. It is a social entity that has the responsibility of realizing the happiness of those who work in it.
Luis A. Ferre
By examining characters lighting the way to hell, as it were, are readers spared iniquity? Are stories a heeded warning, or merely an entertainment? Each story in the collection tries to wrestle with these questions.
Adam Ross
You might be a redneck if…the most serious loss from the earthquake was your Conway Twitty record collection.
Jeff Foxworthy
I’ve got a great collection of photography.
Elton John
Why don’t I like crowds? I suppose the worst possible thing I could say is that I don’t like people, and that crowds are just collections of people. That seems like a very nihilistic way to look at the world.
Chuck Klosterman
Indeed. That pony collection isn’t nearly complete,” Carter mused. When I dared a look back at him, I saw that the angel was smiling at me. “You see? You aren’t lost. No matter what happens to you, you have a plan. There’s still hope.
Richelle Mead
This is a collection of dexterous, loving, beautifully optimistic work that left me breathless and delighted…. Hannu Rajaniemi’s magnificent science fiction – as is paradoxically appropriate – is pure magic.
Amal El-Mohtar
The point is, this is what happens when advertising and data collection is the dominant business mode. We are encouraged to be compulsive. It’s not that we’re terrible addicts who need to go to an AA meeting and get off our gadgets.
Astra Taylor
I had the fortune to evolve at a time when fashion was very important, and women dressed themselves very well. A woman who dressed very well also had a husband who would have beautiful collections of art and decorative objects.
Hubert de Givenchy
It is hard for many people to give up the religion in which they were born; to admit that their fathers were utterly mistaken, and that the sacred records of their country are but collections of myths and fables.
Robert Green Ingersoll
Los Angeles had no culture of its own, just a large collection of misreadings of the artistic histories of other, proper cities.
Warren Ellis
I’ve got a collection of songs that I’ve had, I keep adding to and they’re all great American composers. I wanted to showcase American composers and I’ve done that on a lot of my records and played things by American composers that I really respect.
Charlie Haden
Creating a book and creating a collection involve a lot of editing.
Anna Sui
When I was younger, I had no interest. But after I went to Paris to see the collections for the first time a few years ago, they made a huge impression on me. I realized that fashion is an art form, like acting or painting.
Camilla Belle
A restaurant wine list is praised and given awards for reasons that have little to do with its real purpose, as if it existed only to be admired passively, like a stamp collection. A wine list is good only when it functions well in tandem with a menu.
Gerald Asher
He deserves ten out of ten for doing what he does. He is a sensation, but still he can improve. He must know when to move the ball on quickly and when to try the impossible mission. When he learns this, he won’t win a single Golden Ball, but an entire collection.
Johan Cruijff
After all these years of creating my collections, I still doubt my decision even until the last minute before the fashion show, I keep questioning myself and wondering if I did the right thing.
Sonia Rykiel
Women are outside the law; they make nothing, they say yes or no to some collections of whereases.
Christina Stead
I find inspiration for my line of jewelry from traveling and from my lifestyle. I have three collections: New York, Palm Beach, and Paris.
Melania Trump
I’m not looking for people to bow down to me or do things in my name or even pass around a collection plate for me. I say that I’d like to be God for a while because He really can get away with anything. I mean, ANYTHING.
Paul Feig
No collection of people who are all waiting for the same thing are capable of holding a natural conversation. Even if the thing they are waiting for is only a taxi.
Ben Elton
People give me money and I don’t know why, my real collection plate is an empty cup held by a homeless guy.
Bo Burnham
Jeff Smith was the Julia Child of my generation. When his television show, ‘The Frugal Gourmet,’ made its debut on PBS in the 1980s, it conveyed such genuine enthusiasm for cooking that I was moved for the first time to slap down cold cash for a collection of recipes.
Alton Brown
Now that Mr. Carter has made a book of his diary, an adoring memoir entitled Keeping Faith, the notes read like a collection of letters sent from scout camp.
Lewis H. Lapham
What I do is look at ancient African tribes, and the way they dress. The rituals of how they dress. . . . There’s a lot of tribalism in the collections.
Alexander McQueen
My collections are a reflection of my personal style and interests. All the textiles, fabrics and patterns are of my personal choice.
Ashley Purdy
I think most people’s record collections are more interesting than radio generally gives them credit for. You’re likely to be as interested in the Grateful Dead as Palestrina. It pisses me off how compartmentalised music is. I used to be in a punk band, you know?
Charles Hazlewood
I didn’t see an abstract painting until I was 18, when I went to Vincent Price’s house and saw Richard Niebencorn, Wolff, Jackson Pollack. He had an amazing collection. I didn’t know people painted abstractly, I thought I was just doing something wholeheartedly.
Dennis Hopper
I cannot imagine how I will cope when I discover that my life is behind me, has already happened, and I have nothing to show for it. No treasure house of collection, no wealth of experience, no accumulated wisdom to pass on. What are we, if not an accumulation of our memories?
S.J. Watson
Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen.
Albert Einstein
A man who risks his life in shooting big game in order to secure good specimens for natural history collections, or to rid a district of a man-eater or other dangerous neighbor, is a sportsman in the true sense.
Robert Baden-Powell
What if he wakes up before you get home and steals you blind? (Wayne) Steals what? My clothes won’t fit him and I have nothing of any value. Not unless he likes my Peter, Paul, and Mary collection anyway. (Sunshine)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
When I work on a movie, I never aim for records, collections or the number one position. I always concentrate on my work and look for ways to improve my acting abilities. I also advise my co-stars not to concentrate on these pretty issues and just focus on acting.

Behind every open heart is a story. Tell yours with my Open Heart collection. There are millions of reasons to give one, but the message is always the same: Keep your heart open and love will always find its way in.
Jane Seymour
Of course, I started as a collector. A true collector. I can remember as if it were only yesterday the heart-pounding excitement as I spread out upon the floor of my bedroom The Edward G. Robinson Collection of Rare Cigar Bands. I didn’t play at collecting. No cigar anywhere was safe from me.
Edward G. Robinson

Creating a bridalwear collection was a natural progression from my evening wear collections, which are well known for their softly draped and diaphanous silk gowns.
Matthew Williamson
Real myths are often strange and startlingly unfamiliar, and don’t always give up their meanings easily; you have to tease them out, and for me, that’s one of the pleasures of reading older collections of lore.
Elizabeth Hand
With this blistering salvo of poetic gutshots Lawson has proven himself Bizarro’s true bard, its mad laureate. Switching from dark whimsy to retina-blast shock to political outrage without missing a beat, The Troublesome Amputee is a powerful collection of pitch-black verse.
Jeremy Robert Johnson
I like to think I play rugby as it should be played – there are no yellow or red cards in my collection – but I cannot say I’m an angel.
Jonny Wilkinson
Jazz is not a ‘form’ but a collection of tags and tricks.
Ernest Newman
The heaping together of paintings by Old Masters in museums is a catastrophe; likewise, a collection of a hundred Great Brains makes one big fathead.
Carl Jung
MIDI made a natural transition to the PC. The MIDI messages that make up a musical composition can be saved as MIDI files, which are collections of MIDI messages with timing information.
Charles Petzold
We live in a world so utterly infused with digitality that it makes even the slightest action ripple across the collection of data bases we call the web.
