Guests Quotes

Guests Quotes by Freda Adler, Eleanor Roosevelt, Davy Jones, Ishmael Reed, Geert Wilders, Benjamin Franklin and many others.

What I love most about New York is that I can walk in the street and nobody is looking at me as if I’m different. In my country and in Italy, you have to choose sides. I was a famous journalist and I was also an immigrant and ultimately I never stopped feeling like I was a guest.

I prefer to leave standing up, like a well-mannered guest at a party.

Candice Olson
How many times have you wanted to make a chocolate cake from scratch or prove you can make a flakey crust as good as your grandmother’s….but you just don’t have the time! A snow day is the perfect day to enlist the kids with no time pressure, or worse, dinner guests to impress.

Think I’ll rub one off before I sleep.

Robert Englund
Tea with us became more than an idealisation of the form of drinking; it is a religion of the art of life.

Okakura Kakuzo

When we run out of them upstairs, I’ve been known to appropriate some from our greenroom, pocketing a few with one hand as I smile and greet our guests with the other.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Wear a gun to someone else’s house, you’re saying, ‘I’ll defend this home as if it were my own.’ When your guests see you carry a weapon, you’re telling them, ‘I’ll defend you as if you were my own family.’ And anyone who objects levels the deadliest insult possible: ‘I don’t trust you unless you’re rendered harmless’!
L. Neil Smith

E. V. Lucas
This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. Welcome and entertain them all!
I say don’t overreact; cool your jets. Focus on things that you can control: your business, your employees’ welfare, your guests, and the quality of the product that you dish up. Do that, keep your chin down, pay attention to business, and the sun will come up tomorrow. That’s the way I figure it.

We should have absolute control over our borders. If we want cheap labor to depress wages and disempower the unions, then we could have guest workers. But we have to face that issue.

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
I would guess that it might have made a difference. It certainly didn’t hurt us in any way. Feng shui creates a balance that I believe adds to the comfort zone of rooms and space, and that is felt by guests and residents.
Donald Trump
Don’t lick the guests, darling. Bad manners.

David Hepworth
The great distinction of a true Christian is the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. How careful should he be, lest anything in his thoughts or feelings would be offensive to the Divine Guest.!
Francis Schaeffer
In TV, when you’re doing guest roles, you’re gliding into a zone where people are already very comfortable. They go in and go to work every day. You’re coming in, and it’s a brand-new environment, so you have to get it… and then you’re gone again.
Stephen Root
We’re gonna try and bring on all the different aspects of horror movie making and bring on guests and show all these old ’50’s B movies. Not the real corny ones, the real cool ones.

Alain Ducasse

Tyler Florence
Every ‘Oprah Winfrey Show’ has about it the aura of Oprah’s own life, just as the rituals and sacraments of a religion are suffused with the life of the religion’s founder. Above the testimony of Oprah’s guests hovers what viewers know about Oprah’s experience.
Lee Siegel
I think that curiosity happened on these reviews where I was just a guest of the reviewer, because it introduced me to new cuisines and to the idea of cooking as a mechanism for studying other cultures and understanding other parts of the world.
Ted Allen
I did a guest appearance on The Practice and loved it.
Sharon Stone
It is my belief one should not belittle the artist; while, however glorious his fame may seem, his time on Mount Olympus as an honourable guest of Zeus is short. It’s a pity, but all too eager will the common folk drag him from this etherial heights to the low and trodden earth.
Ludwig van Beethoven
I’ve done festivals in the past where I’d be a guest, it was like, Wow, maybe someday I could play Town Hall – but that’ll be a long way off. So it’s very exciting.
John Mulaney
The number of guests at dinner should not be less than the number of the Graces nor exceed that of the Muses, i.e., it should begin with three and stop at nine.

Mary Dillon
Peace is a stranger to the rigid mind. Peace is a guest of the flexible heart.
Sri Chinmoy
I have the version of me where I’m interviewing someone, where I definitely am the straight man, and I like to show a lot of respect to my guest and let them take the reins. I don’t like to compete with my guests. I don’t like to be funnier than my guests or get into a ‘Who’s wackier?’ sort of thing.
Tom Green
I have a guest house because I don’t want people in my home.
Karl Lagerfeld

Marcus Samuelsson
For, after all, put it as we may to ourselves, we are all of us from birth to death guests at a table which we did not spread.
Rebecca Harding Davis
When I did TV, I only did little guest parts, and it hasn’t been that long. There is a kind of pressure in this job that comes from your work every day being there forever. But this is all part of the brand-new world that I’m discovering.
Emma Stone
A choral dance: an attempt to impose upon a chance gathering of a few dozen guests a communal feeling.

We have developed overlays for the keys of the cash registers with the help of the Braille Institute, so that blind crew members can take orders and help our guests.

It’s often the guests you don’t expect to be interesting who are the best. On ‘Light Lunch,’ I remember a guest called Ivor Spencer. He was the Royal Toastmaster and he was great, a real good-time guy.
Mel Giedroyc
When sociobiologists start shitting in their backyards with dinner guests in the vicinity, maybe their arguments about innateness over culture will start seeming more persuasive.
Laura Kipnis
Did I tell you I finally found the perfect page-cutter? It’s a pearl-handled fruit knife. My mother left me a dozen of them, I keep one in the pencil cup on my desk. Maybe I go with the wrong kind of people but i’m just not likely to have twelve guests all sitting around simultaneously eating fruit.
Helene Hanff
As long as you don’t practice it, this dying and becoming, You are only a dreary guest on this dark earth.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
A lot of people live much more simply than in the old days. That doesn’t bother me. Keeping busy is the problem. Television guest shot fees are going down. You can do a dozen guest shots a year, but you’re not making that much money.
Harry Morgan
A balanced guest list of mixed elements is to a successful party what the seasoning is to a culinary triumph.
Letitia Baldrige

Elizabeth Gilbert
Like when I host a party. I hope my guests get along. But if not, how interesting!
Andy Cohen
Unbidden guests Are often welcomest when they are gone.
William Shakespeare
When I entertain, I want to have fun. But I’m also a control person. I don’t go in for those everyone-in-the-kitchen cooking scenes. So if I want to be with my guests, I have to do everything – or nearly everything – in advance.
Geoffrey Zakarian
After spending the last 15 years guest hosting, I couldn’t be happier to get the opportunity to host my own show! I’m looking forward to talking sports, connecting with listeners, and interviewing amazing guests every day, while being a part of the FOX Sports Radio family. It was worth the wait.
Jay Mohr
Well, I don’t like your clothes. You look perfectly ridiculous in them. Why on earth don’t you go up and change? It’s perfectly childish to be in mourning for a man who is actually staying a whole week with you in your house as a guest. I call it grotesque.
Oscar Wilde
Hopes were wallflowers. Hopes hugged the perimeter of a dance floor in your brain, tugging at their party lace, all perfume and hems and doomed expectation. They fanned their dance cards, these guests that pressed against the walls of your heart.
Karen Russell

Michael Mina
I can’t even tell you how many different shows I would love to guest star on because there’s just too many.
Brian Dietzen
If the guests want to wrest the check away from the host, because the host is also the guest of honor, then the guest who volunteers has to cover the whole thing. A guest can’t volunteer -all- of the guests to pay for the host/honoree.
Carolyn Hax
it is bad manners to contradict a guest. You must never insult people in your own house – always go to theirs.
Myrtle Reed
I have heard upscale adult U.S. citizens ask the ship’s Guest Relations Desk whether snorkeling necessitates getting wet…I now know the precise mixocological difference between a Slippery Nipple and a fuzzy navel.
David Foster Wallace
If you’re a guest [at my $113 million house], you’ll be able to call up on screens throughout the house almost any image you like – presidential portraits, reproductions of High Renaissance paintings, pictures of sunsets, airplanes, skiers in the Andes, a rare French stamp, the Beatles in 1965.
Bill Gates
My first appearance as a guest on The Tonight Show was in ’81.
Garry Shandling
Eating in Italy is essentially a family art, practiced for and by the family. The finest accomplishments of the home cook are not reserved like the good silver and china for special occasions or for impressing guests, but are offered daily for the pleasure and happiness of the family group.
Marcella Hazan
If his drunkenness had legs, it would be Alexander the Great and conquer the known world. Then it would puke for a week into a solid gold toilet it stole from Zeus’s guest room.
Richard Kadrey
I used to take a recorder around and interview my parents and do impressions of my classmates as guests on my show.
Iliza Shlesinger
Like all guests, after a fortnight, grief is best beyond the door.
Sandra Cisneros
When guests enter the room their entertainers rise to receive them; and in all meetings men should ascend into their higher selves, imparting to one another only the best they know and love.
John Lancaster Spalding
Popeyes is a powerful brand with a rich Louisiana heritage that resonates with guests around the world.
Daniel Schwartz
A gloomy guest fits not a wedding feast.
Friedrich Schiller
If I can make an economic deal with Amazon that works for them and works for me, OK – I’ll make it available. But I don’t want to be part of restrictions that make life difficult for my guests.
Gerry Lopez
many of the guests will eventually leave the table to watch football on television, which would be a rudeness at any other occasion but is a relief at Thanksgiving and probably the only way to get those people to budge.
Judith Martin
In a way, the Nobel Prize has been something of a pain in the neck, though there was at least one time that I got some fun out of it, Shortly after I won the Prize, Gweneth and I received an invitation from the Brazilian government to be the guests of honor at the Carnaval celebrations in Rio.
Richard P. Feynman
I wanted to go back on ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ I did it. One of my favorite shows is ‘Hawaii Five-0.’ I went on, guest starred. I wanted to be in a film, did ‘Tasmanian Devils’ in Vancouver. Wanted to host a show, boom, did it.
Apolo Ohno
The people I want are very famous and very rich, and all I can offer them is a bit of exposure on TV and a bit of cash, so it’s a miracle we get any guests at all. But we have been very lucky.
Graham Norton
You’ll see all other mortal sinners, the ones who flout the honor owed to gods or guests, or loving parents–you’ll see them get the justice they deserve. For Hades holds men mightily to a strict accounting down below the earth; he sees all things, inscribes them within the book of his remembering.
By insisting on having your bottle pointing to the north when the cork is being drawn, and calling the waiter Max, you may induce an impression on your guests which hours of laboured boasting might be powerless to achieve. For this purpose, however, the guests must be chosen as carefully as the wine.
Hector Hugh Munro
The coolest thing I’ve gotten to do in the past few years is guest star on Sesame Street.
Norah Jones
You know, what ‘New Girl’ is doing is they’re bringing in really cool people. These are home-run people who aren’t your typical guest-star-type people.
Jake M. Johnson
Enabling people to make and receive phone calls during flight demonstrated the flexibility of a high-speed connectivity system. We allowed our guests to make calls to the ground while we flew over international waters.
Christopher Peterson
The theme of the party was Neverland Ranch, so guests were asked to come as anyone or anything associated with Michael Jackson. It was all very disturbing.
April Winchell
And as pale sickness does invade, Your frailer part, the breaches made, In that fair lodging still more clear, Make the bright guest, your soul, appear.
Edmund Waller
In the end we’re all Jerry Springer Show guests, really, we just haven’t been on the show.
Marilyn Manson
Our life may look glamorous, but we scream at the kids, and I have to tell Jamie to tidy up if we have guests coming over.
Louise Nurding
Of course I knew The Band’s Canadian keyboard player, the late Richard Manuel, but I didn’t play that night because I was there as a guest with my record executives. People ask, “why didn’t you play?” If I had known I was going to be playing then I would have been prepared for it.
Gordon Lightfoot
Lance Guest in The Last Starfighter had such integrity and held himself to such a high standard that I just wanted to raise your own standard to meet it. He is a hard-working, giving actor. He made me feel secure and better in my role opposite him.
Catherine Mary Stewart
Thom is one of those wonderful people to cook for because he absolutely loves it,
just loves it.
He loves to eat and drink and he’d be a great guest at any dinner party.
Ted Allen
If the flu situation in your town is serious, cancel a large long-awaited party you had scheduled, but promise the guests in an e-mail that you will reschedule the party as soon as possible.
Letitia Baldrige
I actually never auditioned for ‘Full House.’ I had done a guest appearance on ‘Valerie’ as the next door neighbor’s niece, and from that I got into ‘Full House.’ I was only five years old, and I was on the show until I was 13.
Jodi Sweetin
As long as you have not grasped that you have to die to grow, you are a troubled guest on the dark earth”.
Mircea Eliade
When I make a feast, I would my guests should praise it, not the cooks.
John Harington
Any album that you pick up of mine, you know it’s an Akon album. The guests are very limited and you get to really feel the experience. You get the Akon experience when you get the albums. I always want to make sure that stays the way it is. I don’t want to flood the album to where you lose focus on why you bought it.
I’m a really good dinner party guest. I am always so appreciative, impressed that anyone has even managed to turn on the oven and cook for me.
Lucy Punch
Regular panelists on shows can be terrifying. They own that space, and many guest comics suspect they are favoured in the edit, while their own hilarious jokes end up being ejected into the ether.
Jo Brand
Perhaps host and guest is really the happiest relation for father and son.
Evelyn Waugh
True friendship’s laws are by this rule express’d,
Welcome the coming, speed the parting guest.
Alexander Pope
I do favor guest workers, H1B visas and student visas.
Jim Kolbe
One of my first gigs was as a guest star, and I was supposed to be a big imposing character.
David Giuntoli
When I do entertain, in the summer, which is rare, I receive my guests on the front porch, set up wicker trays found at Pottery Barn, and serve iced beverages. Anytime I do welcome friends, it’s always a tray of canapes or Planters peanuts, jellied candy from Paris, and a good bottle of Sancerre.
Andre Leon Talley
Ted Cruz supported a 500-percent increase in the number of H-1 visas, the guest workers that are allowed into this country, and Ted supports doubling the number of green cards.
Marco Rubio
Two elements enter into successful and happy gatherings at table. The food, whether simple or elaborate, must be carefully prepared; willingly prepared; imaginatively prepared. And the guests – friends, family or strangers – must be conscious of their welcome.
Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
THE soul should always stand ajar, That if the heaven inquire, He will not be obliged to wait, Or shy of troubling her. Depart, before the host has slid The bolt upon the door, To seek for the accomplished guest, — Her visitor no more.
Emily Dickinson
I ended up living at OJ’s because Nicole bought a home that no longer had a guest house. OJ offered his guest house to me. Anybody in LA looking for a place knows the best places to live are guest houses.
Kato Kaelin
On being the guest of honor at an awards banquet: “Thank you for making this day necessary.”
Yogi Berra
I’ve ended up feeling fonder of ‘The Paying Guests’ than of any of my other novels.
Sarah Waters
Watching my mother welcome guests in Virginia, where I was raised, taught me that if someone is invited to your home, it is your duty to make them feel welcome and comfortable at all times.
Tinsley Mortimer
I’ve given parties that have made Indian rajahs green with envy. I’ve had prima donnas break $10,000 engagements to come to my smallest dinners. When you were still playing button back in Ohio, I entertained on a cruising trip that was so much fun that I had to sink my yacht to make my guests go home.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
The thoughts that occur to me while I’m running are like clouds in the sky. Clouds of all different sizes. They come and they go, while the sky remains the same sky always. The clouds are mere guests in the sky that pass away and vanish, leaving behind the sky.
Haruki Murakami
Whenever someone makes out a guest list, the people not on it become officially uninvited, and that makes them the enemies of the invited. Guest lists are just a way of choosing sides.
E. L. Konigsburg
I’m so thrilled to have been asked to guest in the Doctor Who Christmas Special, I’m such a fan of the show. The read-through was very difficult for me; I wanted to keep stuffing my fingers into my ears and scream ‘No spoilers!’ Every day on set I’ve had to silence my internal fan-boy squeals!
Nick Frost
To be an ideal guest, stay at home.
E. W. Howe
Brevity never fatigues; therefore, brevity is always a welcome guest.
Theophile Gautier
There’s was no pressure on it for me – I just went in and had fun. Whatever Jason Moore, the director, asked me to do, I did it! I ran around the room acting like a crazy guest on “Jerry Springer” and yelling at the audience. I just went for it.
Max von Essen
I once attended a birthday party where Danny Kaye dropped in to entertain the birthday boy and his guests; I was sometimes taken for lunch on Saturdays by my father to The Brown Derby; and my favorite meal is still the Cobb salad in the Polo Lounge of the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Michael Korda
My favorite birthday game is Pin the Cleanup on the guests.
Slaves were taught to be fine chefs, but they endangered their lives if they made a mistake or served an ill-prepared dish. Rather than being reprimanded, they were often hauled into the dining room and flogged in the presence of the guests.
Jeff Smith
Our profession is very much like going to a cocktail party, you check out the guest list.
Robert Stack
In time you shall see Fate approach youIn the shape of your own image in the mirror;Or you shall sit alone by your own hearth,And suddenly the chair by you shall hold a guest,And you shall know that guest,And read the authentic message of his eyes.
Edgar Lee Masters
If we take into account the existence of our planet, we have to recognise that we are guests that spend a short and very determined period in this world, and all we leave behind is nuclear waste.
Gunter Grass
I’m the only talk show host, I think, if there’s such a category in, what’s called, the book of records, to have a guest die while we were taping the show, yeah.
Dick Cavett
When hospitality becomes an art it loses its very soul.
Max Beerbohm
I’m just very interested in what my guests have to say. You have to be vigilant to stay ignorant.
Stephen Colbert
It is difficult sharing and capturing so many years of memories and the people behind the words-and even though that guest book can speak volumes, in between, the pages remain so silent.
Eugenie Anderson
We still lend our old house out to relatives. They keep a guest book for my fans to sign.
Loretta Lynn
Celebrating the holidays in the White House over these past eight years has been a true privilege. We’ve been able to welcome over half a million guests… our outstanding pastry chefs have baked 200,000 holiday cookies… and Barack [Obama] has treated the American people to countless dad jokes.
Michelle Obama
There are very sophisticated, very time-consuming dishes to prepare; always from scratch, and always in excess of what you could possibly need. You tend to kill your guests with kindness around here.
Anthony Bourdain
The Night is young & full of rest I can’t describe the way she’s dress’d She’ll pander to some strange requests Anything that you suggest Anything to please her guest.
Jim Morrison
She’s sent the crows out to blind the guests coming for dinner!” What?” She’s BLINDING THE GUESTS COMING FOR DINNER!” Well, that’s one way to avoid having to dust, I suppose.
Gregory Maguire
Misery is a guest that we are glad to part with, however certain of her speedy return.
Fanny Burney
The audience is the most revered member of the theater. Without an audience, there is no theater. Everything done is ultimately for the enjoyment of the audience. They are our guests, fellow players, and the last spoke in the wheel which can then begin to roll. They make the performance meaningful.
Viola Spolin
when happiness makes a guest appearance in one’s life,it’s important to make the most of it.It may not stay around for long and when it has gone wouldn’t it be terrible to think that all the time one could have been happy was wasted worrying when the happiness would be taken away.
Marian Keyes
Leigh [Bowery] would create fake guest lists and put the most ridiculous names on them – Joan Collins, or really naff soap stars who would never grace the door of Taboo.
Boy George
We also have a lot of people who are not Dutch, and who are in Holland as a guest, whether they are asylum seekers or others. I believe if you commit a crime you overstay your welcome, if we could extradite you.
Geert Wilders
I’m really interested in, who’s booked the guests, who’s decided to have Lena Dunham and to have the mothers of sons who were shot – sons and daughters who were shot by the police and, you know, the other performers, Paul Simon and Alicia Keys.
Terry Gross
Christopher Guest movies are my top of the line favorites.
Nina Blackwood
Guests are the delight of leisure, and the solace of ennui.
Agnes Repplier
O, once in each man’s life, at least, Good luck knocks at his door; And wit to seize the flitting guest Need never hunger more. But while the loitering idler waits. Good luck beside his fire, The bold heart storms at fortune’s gates, And conquers its desire.
John L. Bates
When we’re discussing who to invite to a dinner party, my wife Chaz and I sometimes use the shorthand, ‘good value for money,’ which indicates guests expected to be entertaining.
Roger Ebert
For a host, above all, must be kind to his guests.
Dr. Seuss
One whiff of a savory aromatic soup and appetites come to attention. The steaming fragrance of a tempting soup is a prelude to the goodness to come. An inspired soup puts family and guests in a receptive mood for enjoying the rest of the menu.
Louis Pullig De Gouy
At the restaurant, we strive to create an excellent experience for our guests, and in the kitchen, we could not do this without having access to the best ingredients, equipment and tools, including Victorinox Cutlery.
Daniel Humm
I had played many gay characters before, but they were finite – guest characters in TV shows or characters in plays.
Eric McCormack
Farewell, farewell! but this I tell
To thee, thou Wedding-Guest!
He prayeth well, who loveth well
Both man and bird and beast.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
You can judge a country by the way it treats its prisoners, and you can always judge a show by the way it treats people coming on to do these guest shots.
Donal Logue
If my life can inspire people, then a television show where guests talk about their challenges and what makes them unique would work.
Anupam Kher
We have forgotten how to be good guests, how to walk lightly on the earth as its other creatures do.
Barbara Ward, Baroness Jackson of Lodsworth
For one year, I want to do this thing where I guest-star on as many television shows as I possibly can. I love television. The fact that television ultimately made me famous was very gratifying for me.
Dave Chappelle
President and Mrs. Kennedy would walk into the East Room with their honored guests, preceded by the military color guard, who then posted their flags behind the receiving line. This ceremony never failed to move all of us, no matter how many times the staff witnessed it.
Letitia Baldrige
The most important thing for having a party is that the hostess is having fun. I’m very organized. I make a plan for absolutely everything. I never have anything that has to be cooked while the guests are there. The only thing I might have to do is take something out of the oven and carve it.
Ina Garten
To love God means to surrender, to trust, to be ready to die into Him, because dying in God is the beginning of a new life; it is resurrection. Love has to become such an intense flame that it bums you out, that you are not left behind, that you are consumed in it. If you are not, the Guest comes.
A courteous, yet harrowing Grace,
As Guest, that would be gone
Emily Dickinson
Concocting a good guest list is like seasoning a gourmet sauce. Too many similar ingredients and it’s bland. Too much variety in the seasoning and the result may be overpowering.
Sheila Ostrander
Every house guest brings you happiness. Some when they arrive, and some when they are leaving
Fish and visitors stink in three days.
Benjamin Franklin
It is equally wrong to speed a guest who does not want to go, and to keep one back who is eager. You ought to make welcome the present guest, and send forth the one who wishes to go.
In TV, kid roles are like this: You’re either in a couple minutes of an episode playing somebody’s kid, or you get in these procedurals where you’re crying or you’re playing a witness or you’re playing a crazy person. Every once in a while you get a big guest star role, but there’s a formula to those TV shows.
Kyle Gallner
If it were not for guests all houses would be graves.
Khalil Gibran
The good guest is almost invisible, enjoying him or herself, communing with fellow guests, and, most of all, enjoying the generous hospitality of the hosts.
Emily Post
I would love to be a guest on a talk show or a panel that shows women who have been on reality shows who’ve had success, to prove to audiences that you don’t have to be a fool to become successful.
NeNe Leakes
I have long been a proponent of a guest-worker program between the United States and Mexico, and in particular I have proposed that Arizona would be an ideal location for a pilot project.
Janet Napolitano
I’m sure the next time Piers Morgan asks me to host his show again I will ask President Obama to be my guest.
Harvey Weinstein
It only looks like I get to eat a lot of food on TV. I really just get the one bite and the crew and guests eat everything else.
Rachael Ray
I seem to myself, as in a dream, Am accidental guest in this dreadful body.
Anna Akhmatova
To-morrow! the mysterious, unknown guest,
Who cries to me: “Remember Barmecide,
And tremble to be happy with the rest.”
And I make answer: “I am satisfied;
I dare not ask; I know not what is best;
God hath already said what shall betide.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
And so, little by little, I gradually divested myself of pretty nearly all of the guest conducting I used to do, because I was at the same time working in the places like the Met, where I could work in this sort of depth.
James Levine
I don’t want to be the honored guest. I want to be the invisible person.
Paul Theroux
I don’t rehearse on either of my shows, ‘Family Feud’ or my talk show. I never rehearse with the guests. I don’t want to have any preconceived thoughts, notions, because that kills my creativity as a host and as a stand up.
Steve Harvey
I always feel that I have two duties to perform with a parting guest: one, to see that he doesn’t forget anything that is his; the other, to see that he doesn’t take anything that is mine.
Alfred North Whitehead
Do you realize, when Mandela was inaugurated president, he invited as his special guests the white jailers from his Robben Island prison? He literally did forgive everybody.
Rush Limbaugh
Seest thou how pale the sated guest rises from supper, where the appetite is puzzled with varieties? The body, too, burdened with I yesterday’s excess, weighs down the soul, and fixes to the earth this particle of the divine essence.
My appearance was always good and my ability to play on the piano, especially ragtime, which was then at the height of its vogue, made me a welcome guest.
James Weldon Johnson
I love albums that have guest performers that the audience will be happy to hear. It’s really a bonus!
Lisa Loeb
I think that the dying pray at the last not please but thank you, as a guest thanks his host at the door. Falling from airplanes the people are crying thank you, thank you, all down the air; and the cold carriages draw up for them on the rocks.
Annie Dillard
The poor of the United States and of the world are your brothers and sisters in Christ. You must never be content to leave them just the crumbs from the feast. You must take of your substance, and not just of your abundance, in order to help them. And you must treat them like guests at your family table.
Pope John Paul II
My zero-stress way to host a gathering: Make the guests do the cooking.
Katie Lee
I’ll have pot in my home for guests – I’m polite! – but I don’t sit around and smoke by myself, ever. Not like I did when I was young.
John Waters
As long as you are not aware of the continual law of Die and Be Again, you are merely a vague guest on a dark Earth.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
There’s such a gulf between yourself and who you were then, but people speak to that other person and it answers; it’s like having a stranger as a house guest in your skin.
Barbara Kingsolver
It’s called Two and a Half Men,” Dermot was telling his guest. “I understand,” Bellenos said. “Because the two brothers are grown, and the son isn’t.” “I think so,” Dermot said. “Don’t you think the son is useless?” “The half? Yes. At home, we’d eat him,” Bellenos said.
Charlaine Harris
Our enemies … seem always with us. The greater our hatred the more persistent the memory of them so that a truly terrible enemy becomes deathless. So that the man who has done you great injury or injustice makes himself a guest in your house forever. Perhaps only forgiveness can dislodge him.
Cormac McCarthy
Fish and guests in three days are stale.
John Lyly
The purpose of poetry is to remind us how difficult it is to remain just one person, for our house is open, there are no keys in the doors, and invisible guests come in and out at will.
Czeslaw Milosz
One of the reasons why ‘Here’s The Thing’, Alec Baldwin’s series of podcasts with ‘artists, policymakers and performers’, is so good is because he’s a big name, so the guests have to deliver.
David Hepworth
With guests who are ‘in the middle of the fight,’ we’re able to hear their point-of-view on the topics, as well as advance our own feelings.
Sean Hannity
CNN is getting smarter, and you can feel it in the stories, you can feel it in the depth with which they’re covered, the kinds of people in terms of guests who are brought on air, the way in which issues are discussed.
Fareed Zakaria
Certify border is secure; only then allow guest workers.
John McCain
No one can be so welcome a guest that he will not become an annoyance when he has stayed three continuous days in a friend’s house. [Lat., Hospes nullus tam in amici hospitium diverti potest, Quin ubi triduum continuum fuerit jam odiosus siet.
A guest should be permitted to graze, as it were, in the pastures of his host’s kindness, left even to his own devices, like a rational being, and handsomely neglected.
Louise Imogen Guiney
Mr. Rockefeller is due to entertain munificently at breakfast, and make his pitch. My advice to one invited guest was: Order caviar, and then say No.
William F. Buckley, Jr.
I suppose the White House thinks it’s doing what Big Business wants, but it will lead to vastly increased taxes, because all these guest workers are to be allowed to bring their children.
Peter Brimelow
How strange to have failed as a social creature—even criminals do not fail that way—they are the law’s “Loyal Opposition,” so to speak. But the insane are always mere guests on earth, eternal strangers carrying around broken decalogues that they cannot read.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Earth, receive an honored guest; William Yeats is laid to rest. Let the Irish vessel lie Emptied of its poetry.
W. H. Auden
It’s different as a guest as opposed to being a star of a series. A guest star is a whole different responsibility. It’s much different than being a regular. You come in, and it’s a lot of unfamiliar faces, and you want to try to fit in as best you can, but also you want to stay there without making waves.
Donnie Wahlberg
I used to chop up C-Span soundbites or interviews with politicians like John Kerry or Bill Clinton into a radio-esque show hosted by Awkwafina and her producer, Mookie. I would pitch down my vocals to have male guests and would send them to a small circle of friends after they were done.
None of my songs are written ‘about’ someone or something, they all just sort of tumble out unannounced, like the worst kind of house guest.
St. Lucia
I received most of my business education around the dinner table. Whether I listened to my father or brothers, or we had business people as dinner guests, I learned from everyone.
Dylan Lauren
I wanted to tell her not to entertain despair like this. Despaire wasn’t a guest, you didn’t play its favorite music, find it a comfortable chair. Despair was the enemy.” -white oleander
Janet Fitch
Visits are insatiable devourers of time, and fit only for those who, if they did not that, would do nothing.
William Cowper
Even today, well-brought-up English girls are taught by their mothers to boil all veggies for at least a month and a half, just in case one of the dinner guests turns up without his teeth.
Calvin Trillin
I would not ever try to be a show intellectual, which I was accused of doing a while on ABC. I thought you were supposed to read the guests’ books.
Dick Cavett
When you guest-star, you’re usually at the center of the dramatic arc, so that’s fun.
Bellamy Young
The good thing about ‘Have I Got News For You’ is it’s a compact show but it still gives everyone space to breathe, and everyone always gets a chance to say something if they want to. It’s a very difficult show to dominate, and guests who come on and dominate always fall foul.
Jack Dee
It’s as though some poor devil were to set out for a large dinner party with the knowledge that the following morning he would be hearing exactly what each of the other guests thought of him.
Cornelia Otis Skinner
Come in. And try not to murder any of my guests.
Cassandra Clare
We built a basic website, and Air Bed and Breakfast was born. Three lucky guests got to stay on a $20 airbed on the hardwood floor. But they loved it. And so did we. We took them on adventures around the city.
Joe Gebbia
You wake up one morning and there it is, sitting in an old plaid bathrobe in your kitchen, unpleasant and unshaved. You look at it, heart sinking. Madness is a rotten guest.
Marya Hornbacher
As my guests leave even my most simple parties, I consistently hear the same thing: ‘That was the best time I ever had,’ and it’s always me saying it. But I do know in my heart they all feel the same way, probably.
Amy Sedaris
Go now, verses, on your light feet, you have not trodden hard on the old earth where the graves laugh when they see their guests, the one corpse stacked on top of the other. Go now and stagger to her whom I do not know.
Hugo Claus
Receive a guest with the same attitude you have when alone. When alone, maintain the same attitude you have in receiving guests.
Soyen Shaku
I was producing things I was acting in, but I had never directed and I felt it was time. I was looking for a piece of material that was about behavior and feelings. When I read Judith Guest’s book, I thought, This is it.
Robert Redford
A pretty woman is a welcome guest.
Lord Byron
Fame is a fickle food Upon a shifting plate, Whose table once a Guest, but not The second time, is set. Whose crumbs the crows inspect, And with ironic caw Flap past it to the Farmer’s corn; Men eat of it and die.
Emily Dickinson
I have heard stories that it was love at first sight for both of us, that we disappeared to a guest room at Merle’s house, had our meals sent up, and didn’t emerge for several days. This is absolutely untrue. I would never behave like that as a guest in someone’s home. Carlos and I went to my beach house.
Martha Graham
We could think or feel as we wished toward the characters, or as the poet, discounting history, invited us to; we were the poet’s guest, his world was his own kingdom, reached, as one of the poems told us, through the ‘Ring of Words.
Janet Frame
I wandered through the stacks, running my hands along the spines of the books on the shelves, they reminded me of cultured or opinionated guests at a wonderful party, whispering to each other.
Janet Fitch
You get the feeling that many of my guests feel that the French language gives them entry into a more cultivated, more intelligent world, more highly civilised too, with rules.
Bernard Pivot
HOSPITALITY, n. The virtue which induces us to feed and lodge certain persons who are not in need of food and lodging.
Ambrose Bierce
Like hungry guests, a sitting audience looks / Plays are like suppers; poets are the cooks / The founder’s you; the table is this place / The carvers we; the prologue is the grace / Each act a course, each scene, a different dish.
George Farquhar
Being Jem, Tessa reflected, must be a great deal like being the owner of a thouroughbred dog that liked to bite your guests. You had to have a hand on his collar constantly.
Cassandra Clare
My father and I were never intimate in the sense of my coming to him with confidences or seeking advice. Our relationship was rather that of host and guest. Perhaps host and guest is really the happiest relation for father and son.
Evelyn Waugh
I feel like women are frequently seen as guests in the comedy world.
Chelsea Peretti
I can certainly see that you know your wine. Most of the guests who stay here wouldn’t know the difference between Bordeaux and Claret.
John Cleese
I remember cream cheese in celery, with a sprinkling of paprika, served at my dad and stepmum’s ‘soirees’ in the 70s, where people danced to Slade in long tartan dresses. I’d go down and eat the cheese cubes left over from cheese and pineapple on sticks, because guests would only eat the pineapple.
Zoe Ball
Guests love to be ‘wowed’ in Las Vegas. They enjoy and embrace new tastes, new flavors, and they come to expect the unexpected in Las Vegas.
Michael Mina
It is the personality of the mistress that the home expresses. Men are forever guests in our homes, no matter how much happiness they may find there.
Elsie de Wolfe
With foreign officials come foreign merchants, and with foreign merchants come foreign soldiers. They will usurp our authority and influence to begin with, and in the course of time, our guests will have become our hosts.
Zhang Zhidong
It seems to me that some releases these days are so collab heavy to the point the artist seems like a guest on their own album and then fans look out more for the collabs than the stand alone tracks from the artist.
Cise Star
Let the progress of the meal be slow, for dinner is the last business of the day; and let the guests conduct themselves like travelers due to reach their destination together.
Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
Sponsors obviously care more about a ninety-second commercial and want to pay you more than any guest star gets for a ninety-minute acting performance.
Barbara Stanwyck
Much did I rage when young, Being by the world oppressed, But now with flattering tongue It speeds the parting guest.
William Butler Yeats
You have to always remember who your guest is, and thats who we cater to.
Michael Mina
21 Jump Street is great. I just made that, and produced it and was a writer on it. It’s starring myself and Channing Tatum, and maybe some surprise guests.
Jonah Hill
Great kitchens are a must-have. A place to relax and cook for friends and family. A gathering place for family of all ages and guests is a staple for me as well.
Hilary Farr
Humanism is the philosophy that you should be a good guest at the dinner table of life.
A.C. Grayling
When you’re a guest star on TV shows – particularly in the 1960s – you’re always the villain.
Robert Vaughn
Let a man behave in his own house as a guest.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Right now I am kicking around an idea to do a web talk show on a boat. Guests would come on and go fishing with me. I would like to take people who have never fished: You get them out on the water and they really open up.
Tom Colicchio
The latter end of a fray, and the beginning of a feast, Fits a dull fighter, and a keen guest.
William Shakespeare
When you’re entertaining, and I still haven’t accomplished this because I’m always stuck in the kitchen, but spend enough time actually with your guests. It allows you to chill with your friends and be an actual, normal human as opposed to being in the kitchen cooking all the time.
Antoni Porowski
We set up one rule in our house, which is, ‘Guests of guests cannot bring guests.’ That rule was required because that happened one weekend, and we finally said, ‘Okay, you know what? That’s a little too much.’
Elizabeth Gilbert
The suicide does not play the game, does not observe the rules. He leaves the party too soon, and leaves the other guests painfully uncomfortable.
Joyce Carol Oates
I mean, I can cook, but I’d get very nervous having my food being judged by dinner guests.
Prabal Gurung
Conversation is but carving! Give no more to every guest Than he’s able to digest.
Jonathan Swift
At home, we’re listening to TV or playing with our computers, so our entertaining is rusting. We don’t know how to be good hosts and guests in business situations.
Letitia Baldrige
I believe what makes cooking in Las Vegas different from cooking in most other cities are the guests that dine with you in Las Vegas.
Michael Mina
That is our vocation: to convert the enemy into a guest and to create the free and fearless space where brotherhood and sisterhood can be formed and fully experienced.
Henri Nouwen
He comes as a guest to the feast of existence, and knows that what matters is not how much he inherits but how he behaves at the feast, and what people remember and love him for.
Boris Pasternak
If you wou’d have Guests merry with your cheer, Be so your self, or so at least appear.
Benjamin Franklin
I think I must admit so fair a guest when it asks entrance to my heart.
Charlotte Bronte
You notice patterns. White guests often are mortified – that word again – when they learn their ancestors owned slaves. But I’ve never had a black guest who was upset to learn about white ancestry that probably involved forced sexual relations.
Henry Louis Gates
I think its a very strange question that I have to defend myself. I don’t feel that. You are all my guests, it’s not the other way around, that’s how I feel.
Lars von Trier
I look at each one of my restaurants, and I want my personality to come out. Some are serious, some are intense when it comes to food and wines, some are meat masters supreme. I enjoy all my guests.
Michael Mina
For I, who hold sage Homer’s rule the best, Welcome the coming, speed the going guest.
Alexander Pope
I had my one guest star on The Flash, and that became several guest stars, and then they mentioned this new show.
Wentworth Miller
At the end of the day, especially in retail, you’ve got humans serving humans. And really, the more engaged and happier the associates are, the happier our guests are. It’s not complicated.
Mary Dillon
Humiliation is a guest that only comes to those who have made ready his resting-place, and will give him a fair welcome. … no one can disgrace you save yourself.
I always did TV commercials and made great money to put myself through school. That became guest starring roles on TV shows.
Malin Akerman
We have a lot of guests who are trying to take over the house and the owner of the house doesn’t like it.
Pim Fortuyn
The podcasts that keep my attention are those where I can feel the hosts and guests are enjoying themselves or are really passionate about the subject matter.
Lauren Lapkus
All of the guests on ‘Faces of America’ were deeply moved by what we revealed about their ancestry. We were able to trace the ancestry of Native American writer Louise Erdrich back to 438 A.D. We found that Queen Noor is descended from royalty, and that’s before she married King Hussein of Jordan.
Henry Louis Gates
I’ve always loved playing dress up, so I wear party dresses for anything I’m hosting. I think you honor your guests by paying attention to every detail, and this includes your own appearance.
Tinsley Mortimer
Few enjoy noisy overcrowded functions. But they are a gesture of goodwill on the part of host or hostess, and also on the part of guests who submit to them.
Fannie Hurst
I was always prepared for my Fringe journey to end immediately. I had only signed up for a guest role but they kept bringing me back in the third season as a recurring character. So pretty much every time I went to film a ‘Fringe’ episode I kind of said goodbye to the show, but then they kept bringing me back.
Seth Gabel
A guest is a jewel on the cushion of hospitality
Rex Stout
I listen to WTF with Marc Maron, although I’m getting annoyed with him, he’s a bit too intrusive and fawning. But he’s done some great interviews in the past, like with David Simon, the writer of The Wire, and Bruce Springsteen. He gets fantastic guests. I just wish he let them talk more.
Ardal O’Hanlon
The glasses were half full, which meant that the guests were completely so
Guy de Maupassant
Any changes that I made to my line, I asked if I could make them, which I do in every movie. So far everybody’s been gracious enough to say yes. The only improvising I do is in the movies I do with Chris Guest, which is what we do.
Samuel L. Jackson
If a fan comes up and it is a middle-aged lady, it is probably from ‘Prime’; if it is a younger girl, it is probably from when I guest-starred on ‘One Tree Hill.’ And if it is, like, a skateboard kid or a hipster kid, I can tell they are ‘How to Make It’ fans.
Bryan Greenberg
Airbnb has grown thanks to our hosts creating memorable experiences and inspiring their guests to be hosts in their hometowns.
Joe Gebbia
Women’s eyes are wanderers, and too often bring home guests that are very troublesome to them, and whom, once introduced, they cannot get out of the house.
Samuel Richardson
With the long-format interview, I can get into really interesting conversations with my guests. You know what it’s like to get the opportunity to speak to really interesting people and pick their brain about things. To have time to let a guest actually speak and tell a story and get into detail is really exciting.
Tom Green
The main prank that we play with props is for people’s birthdays. The special effects people will put a little explosive in the cake so it blows up in their face – that’s always fun to play on a guest star, or one of the trainees or someone who’s new.
Catherine Bell
Japanese naval officers in dress whites are frequent guests at Pearl Harbor’s officers’ mess and are very polite. They always were. Except, of course, for that little interval there between 1941 and 1945.
William Manchester
Pleasantest of all ties is the tie of host and guest.
It would drive me crazy to be a guest in my own house.
Francesca Marciano
I love to have a dinner party. I love to have people over. I like the feeling it creates in my home – having guests laughing and telling their stories – and I put a lot of thought into it. I plan my menu kind of depending on whatever mood I’m in.
Katie Lee
I cant stand those food cult people who bring their own food into the house. All those little thermoses and paper bags-it makes the other guests uncomfortable.
Paul Lynde
Our concept of a family holiday was going to a guest house in the Lake district or Wales, where walking was part of the holiday.
Roger Bannister
I don’t do a lot of guest shots on television.
John Larroquette
I will gladly lecture for fifty dollars, but I’ll not be a guest for less than a hundred.
Elbert Hubbard
My heart was a habitation large enough for many guests, but lonely and chill, and without a household fire. I longed to kindle one! It seemed not so wild a dream.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
His faithful dog salutes the smiling guest.
Thomas Campbell
It has never been recommended to confuse “loving” with “seeking to please”… …Salome pleased Herod’s guests; I can hardly believe she was burning with love for them. As for poor John the Baptist… …she certainly did not envelop him in her love.
Jacques Maritain
Nothing is ever truly gone… Not for me, nor for any human being. We can only go forward, unless we are guests in some enchantment that is not is ours. We are condemned to an endless present, and we can never go back-the source of all our joy, and all our sorrow.” -Hem at Zelika’s grave
Alison Croggon
What the bride should do is call guests who have young children and say: ‘I’d love to have the kids at the wedding, but we won’t have room. Would you get a baby sitter, and when we get back from our honeymoon, we’ll have you guys over?’
Letitia Baldrige
I really admire Airbnb as a pioneer of the sharing economy and for building community. They’ve found an elegant way to help hosts make more money and for guests to have authentic experiences. It brings those people together in a unique way.
Logan Green
I am merely a guest, born in this world to know the secrets that lie beyond it.
My first role in catering was front-of-house, at five or six, at my parents’ restaurant in Leicester. Me and my brother were dressed in tuxedos and we’d greet guests and be paraded around like show ponies.
Gok Wan
Chris Guest has his own form. It’s a way of working that is really intense and you can commit a lot and you focus a lot. You get to bring a lot. You get to bring things maybe you haven’t seen before. You’re asked to care a great deal for these people who you’re playing and create heart and empathy.
Parker Posey
To dismiss a guest is a more ungracious act than not to admit him at all.
Every house where love abides
And friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, and home sweet home
For there the heart can rest.
Henry Van Dyke
In the course of interviewing, I’ve discovered that if you don’t give your guest something to react to, they don’t react. They simply say what they’ve been saying every time they’ve been interviewed. The last thing you want is to have people say to you what they’ve said to someone else.
Michael Silverblatt
Paper should be edible, nutritious. Inks used for printing or writing should have delicious flavors. Magazines or newspapers read at breakfast should be eaten for lunch. Instead of throwing one’s mail in the waste-basket, it should be saved for the dinner guests.
John Cage
In order to prove a friend to one’s guests, frugality must reign in one’s meals; and, according to an ancient saying, one must eat to live, not live to eat.
No doubt there are people who are our guests [ in Oh, Hello] who are more famous, but to me, Mel Brooks is the most famous person. So that was really cool.
Nick Kroll
I always want my guests to be happy and impressed.
Gail Simmons
Anybody who believes in Allah and the Last Day should not harm his neighbor, & should entertain his guest generously.
There is one way to understand another culture. Living it. Move into it, ask to be tolerated as a guest, learn the language. At some point understanding may come. It will always be wordless. The moment you grasp what is foreign, you will lose the urge to explain it. To explain a phenomenon is to distance yourself from it.
Peter HГёeg
The Indian…stands free and unconstrained in Nature, is her inhabitant and not her guest, and wears her easily and gracefully. But the civilized man has the habits of the house. His house is a prison.
Henry David Thoreau
I’ve been obsessed with words since I was a little girl, and I am fortunate that each week as resident word expert on ‘Countdown’ I am ideally placed to quiz my guests in dictionary corner about the words and phrases they use.
Susie Dent
I love going on other people’s podcasts – in my opinion not enough people ask me to be guests!
Bert Kreischer
Earlier this month the State Department gave the umpteenth performance of its popular play, Please Tread on Me, with Ceylon as guest star, and the usual cast.
William F. Buckley, Jr.
Guests can be, and often are, delightful, but they should never be allowed to get the upper hand.
Elizabeth von Arnim
Come in. And try not to murder any of my guests.” Jace edged into the doorway, sizing up Magnus with his eyes. “Even if one of them spills a drink on my new shoes?” “Even then.
Cassandra Clare
Guests who shop at Ulta know exactly what we’re about. People who have not shopped at Ulta or have not shopped at Ulta for a long time have a fuzzy image. And that’s what I’m all about sharpening and elevating.
Mary Dillon
Not everyone knows how to be silent or to leave in good time. It happens that even people of good breeding fail to notice that their presence provokes in the weary or preoccupied host a feeling akin to hatred, and that this feeling is tensely concealed and covered up with lies.
Anton Chekhov
Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days.
Benjamin Franklin
Whereas the work is understood to be traceable to a source (through a process of derivation or “filiation”), the Text is without a source – the “author” a mere “guest” at the reading of the Text.
Roland Barthes
Business owners have made a strong case to me that they need guest workers. But none has suggested that these workers should be placed on a path to citizenship.
John Shadegg
The reality is that ‘Westworld’ is designed so that guests can indulge with impunity their every fantasy – be it light or dark. So the hosts experience the extremes in human behavior, good and bad.
Lisa Joy
One of the traps of auditioning is walking into that room feeling as though you’re a guest in someone’s house, and being really careful not to spill wine on the carpet. What you have to do is walk in there as though you’re the host.
Wentworth Miller
Of course, the guests were also staring because they know of my relationship with Camille, and are wondering what we might be doing here in the library… alone.” He wiggled his eyebrows at Tessa.
Cassandra Clare
When I first was conducting as guest conductor in Europe 25 years ago, I would propose doing American pieces and grudgingly it would be accepted from time to time.
Michael Tilson Thomas
The world’s an Inn; and I her guest.
Francis Quarles
Pot lucks are fun, especially when you encourage your guests to bring dishes that represent their families or cultures.
Marcus Samuelsson
The rule for hospitality and Irish “help,” is, to have the same dinner every day throughout the year. At last, Mrs. O’Shaughnessylearns to cook it to a nicety, the host learns to carve it, and the guests are well served.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you are not proud of your cellar, there is no thrill of satisfaction in seeing your guest hold up his wineglass to the light and look judicial.
George Eliot
I’m not sure if the audience can smell tuna but the special guest each show definitely can.
Alex Timbers
I knew ‘Be Our Guest’ would be performed on a set and in costume, but anyone with a history in Theatre In Education will know that can mean anything.
Pippa Evans
A lot of people said to me, ‘Enough with the guest vocalists for a while. We want to hear the Mexican play the guitar!’
Carlos Santana
I have 4 bedrooms in my house. 1 is for guests, the other 3 are for closets.
Andre Leon Talley
The irrational may be attractive in the abstract, but not in cab drives, dinner guests, or elderly relatives.
Mason Cooley
I learned that I never really know the true story of my guests’ lives, that I have to content myself with knowing that when I’m interviewing somebody, I’m getting a combination of fact and truth and self-mythology and self-delusion and selective memory and faulty memory.
Terry Gross
My secret for feeding a bunch of guests without seeming stingy is pork tenderloin. It’s an inexpensive cut that looks impressive and is full of flavor. Plus, guys love it.
Katie Lee
Why dost thou not retire like a guest sated with the banquet of life, and with calm mind embrace, thou fool, a rest that knows no care?
The future comes like an unwelcome guest.
Edmund Gosse
It’s a fascinating job, to come in and be the most interesting person in an episode. Whoever the guest star is, that’s the job – to maintain the interest and the focus for that 42 minutes or whatever, and it should be a huge relief to those people that are the leads in the shows.
Mark Sheppard
Good thoughts are blessed guests, and should be heartily welcomed, well fed, and much sought after. Like rose leaves, they give out a sweet smell if laid up in the jar of memory.
Charles Spurgeon
When I did the film Generations, in which the character died, I felt like a guest for the first time. That made me very sad.
William Shatner
I’В’ve been a Hip-Hop head forever. So when it turned out that we were gonna start getting celebrity guests for every show, I wanted rap guys from the get-go.
Andy Milonakis
If matter mute and inanimate, though changed by the forces of Nature into a multitude of forms, can never die, will the spirit of man suffer annihilation when it has paid a brief visit, like a royal guest, to this tenement of clay?
William Jennings Bryan
As when the dove returning bore the mark Of earth restored to the long labouring ark; The relics of mankind, secure at rest, Oped every window to receive the guest, And the fair bearer of the message bless’d.
John Dryden
I think it’s so much fun to create a space. As the world has gotten more and more hectic – with these horrible catastrophes [happening] – people are going out less, ordering in, [having guests over]. People love to be in their homes.
Aerin Lauder
My dream was maybe someday, one night I can be a guest on a talk show, and then I will have achieved everything I want.
Dick Cavett
You must strive to multiply bread so that it suffices for the tables of mankind, and not rather favor an artificial control of birth, which would be irrational, in order to diminish the number of guests at the banquet of life.
Pope Paul VI
What makes an interview ‘difficult’? Well, there are many reasons, but the end result is usually the same: The guest just doesn’t seem comfortable answering the question.
Michael Leunig
As a kid I would be put to bed when my parents had guests and because I was such a show-off I would go to my mum’s room, put on her nightdress and Jackie Onassis shawl, run downstairs, go outside, ring the doorbell and pretend to be one of the guests. I’d say, ‘Hello, I’m Mrs. So-and-So.’
Rupert Everett
Not to sound too much like Christopher Guest in ‘Waiting for Guffman,’ but on Thanksgiving you’re putting on a show!
Ted Allen
The only thing I’m nervous about is talking to guests like human beings, because all of my interviews so far have been attacking people. I have a genuine concern about sitting across from an actor whose movies I obviously haven’t seen.
John Oliver
For whom he means to make an often guest, One dish shall serve; and welcome make the rest.
Joseph Hall
You probably should get back out there. You’re ignoring your other guests.” “Screw them.” “I’m sure that many of them, you already have.
Julie James
I’ve done so many television pilots. I’ve done eleven I think and I’ve never had one get picked up. There was never one that I was a guest star on. It’s just fascinating, but I don’t think it would be fun to be recognized all the time.
Missi Pyle
The truly essential bargain between host and guest requires the guest only to respond promptly, show up on time, socialize with other guests, thank the host, write additional thanks and reciprocate. You needn’t bring anything.
Judith Martin
For summer soirees, I recommend being bold. Add a flavorful herb or a fresh, exotic fruit or vegetable to transport your guests to another place.
Jeremiah Brent
if you live in New York and you have a guest room, you have guests. So I think it’s best not to have a guest room.
Fran Lebowitz
You know it’s funny that none of the regular late-night shows now use guest hosts the way Johnny did. No one talks about it much, but it’s curious that they don’t do it. They would each have to be asked the reason why they don’t.
Garry Shandling
I don’t think sleeping with you is going to solve anything,” she said, stopping at the guest bedroom door. “I don’t really care what you think.
Cindy Gerard
Objects of charity are not guests.
Henry David Thoreau
A talk show is difficult because the formula is always the same: there’s a host and there’s guests. Really what you can change is only so much. So, I don’t have any pre-interviews, which forces real conversation.
Jenny McCarthy
A free-loader is a confirmed guest. He is the man who is always willing to come to dinner.
Damon Runyon
We may sing ‘welcome, welcome, Holy Spirit’, but He does not come because of our welcome. He is no guest, no stranger invited in for an hour or two. He is the Lord from heaven and He invites us into His presence.
Reinhard Bonnke
The most welcome guest in society will ever be the one to whose mind everything is a suggestion, and whose words suggest something to everybody.
Sarah Josepha Hale
Before, I was always the kid that was in the background. It was hard for me to get casted in even one program, and when people thought that I was a guest on a show for the first time when I had been on before, it saddened me. Suddenly getting the spotlight? That’s! Not! True!
As a kid I would be put to bed when my parents had guests and because I was such a show-off I would go to my mum’s room, put on her nightdress and Jackie Onassis shawl, run downstairs, go outside, ring the doorbell and pretend to be one of the guests. I’d say, ‘Hello, I’m Mrs. So-and-So.
Rupert Everett
Broadway is like a club I haven’t been invited to, and I’m hoping that maybe they will give me a guest pass one of these days.
Merritt Wever
I like when the ice gets thin, the going gets rough, the guests get edgy.
Dick Cavett
Jessica Seinfeld made a toast. She turned to the assembled guests. ‘And you are all so lucky to be part of Gwyneth’s world. Because this is the real deal. And she’s invited all of you good people in here. I would never do that.’
Gwyneth Paltrow
Wherever the storm carries me, I go a willing guest.
My friend Jerry Falwell was the one who said it, and he was a guest on my show, and it’s hard to take the blame for everybody who shows up on your show.
Pat Robertson
Inspiration is a guest that does not willingly visit the lazy.
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
I love having the ability to do podcasts because of the long format, informality, and the opportunity to decide what is said, how the show is laid out, and who the guests are.
Rich Eisen
A hotel isn’t like a home, but it’s better than being a house guest.
William Feather
I do whatever pushes me hardest. It’s coming at me and I try to… it’s like uninvited guest and I have to wrestle them out the door or through the window – get them out and get over with them quickly.
Werner Herzog
I’ve been looking to do TV for a while. I’ve always done guest starring stuff. I’ve done a couple of multi-episode arcs, and I’ve always loved the experience.
Christina Ricci
A true critic, in the perusal of a book, is like a dog at a feast, whose thoughts and stomach are wholly set upon what the guests fling away, and consequently is apt to snarl most when there are the fewest bones.
Jonathan Swift
Comfort comes into your house first as guest, then as a host, then finally as the master.
David Bowie
Of the many guests we welcomed to the Mickey Mouse Club, my absolute favorites were the Lennon Sisters.
Annette Funicello
We do believe in an inside-out culture. If we hold our hosts and guests to an expectation of acceptance and belonging, it has to start within our company. Otherwise, how on earth do we have the credibility to hold them accountable if we’re not doing it to ourselves?
Joe Gebbia
There’s fierce competition between all the networks to get the guest who can bring the most pertinent information about whatever the story of the moment happens to be.
Bob Schieffer
And as a mother of three with a full-time job, podcasts gave me the illusion of having a vibrant social life. I was constantly ‘meeting’ new people. My favorite hosts started to seem like friends: I could detect small shifts in their moods and tell when they were flirting with guests.
Pamela Druckerman
The gods are fugitive guests of literature.
Roberto Calasso
We shall never deny a guest even the most ridiculous request.
Mr. Krabs
Ask yourself constantly, “What is the right thing to do?” Behave toward everyone as if receiving a great guest.
My parents never pushed me towards music. I feel like, growing up in a musical household and always being surrounded by it, I was always kind of a performer child. I remember my parents would have guests over, and they would bring their kids, and I would make sure that we were ready to put a show on.
Dua Lipa
House guests should be regarded as perishables: Leave them out too long and they go bad.
Erma Bombeck
There’s one sad truth in life I’ve found While journeying east and west – The only folks we really wound Are those we love the best. We flatter those we scarcely know, We please the fleeting guest, And deal full many a thoughtless blow To those who love us best.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
