Shawn Michaels Quotes

What do I look for in a woman? Why the three B's of course- body, brains and bucks. Bucks are optional, however, because the Heartbreak Kid has plenty of his own! What would I consider a romantic date? I would have to say that ANY date with me is going to be romantic

When girls or chicks- whatever you prefer- scope me out, its just like bees on honey! They're all over me! Hugging me and kissing me as if I was God's gift to women. Who can blame them? Just take a look at this package.

All right, honey. The HB Kid gets the message. Bottom line: With or without the gruff, I'm still the sexiest man alive!

What would the guy be doing wearing a white bikini? See ya, wouldn't want to be ya!

What can I say? America Online is hip even for a cat like me. I mean, where else would I get the opportunity to talk to chicks all over the world- at the same time! I mean, I'm breakin' hearts from Seattle to St. Pete- all on the same night!

It was something that I had never really thought about. You break into this business wanting to achieve some goals and as I said before, there are a lot of times I don't realize the responsibility that goes along with that. I was made aware of that a couple of days ago in DC, I found it to be a very heavy responsibility, but a responsibility that I would be more than happy to bear

Paul Simon Quotes

Quotes by Paul Simon:

Some people never say the words 'I love you'. It's not their style to be so bold. Some people never say those words: 'I love you' But, like a child, they're longing to be told.

Why am I so soft in the middle when the rest of my life is so hard?

My whole artistic life has always been about change, change, change, move on, move on. It's the only thing I find interesting.

The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls and tenements halls and whispered in the sounds of silence

I'm more interested in what I discover than what I invent

Faith is an island in the setting sun, But proof is the bottom line for everyone

I fall to my knees, shake a rattle at the sky, I'm afraid that I'll be taken, abandoned, and forsaken in her cold coffee eyes.

She comes back to tell me she's gone. As if I didn't know that, as if I didn't know my own bed. As if I'd never noticed the way she brushed her hair from her forehead.

Steven Seagal Quotes

Favorite quotes by Steven Seagal:

I am hoping that I can be known as a great writer and actor some day, rather than a sex symbol.

It doesn't work if the bad guys kill his mother's uncle's friend's neighbor's pet dog. You've got to make the stakes high.

I think people are frustrated in this society, where predators prey upon normal, law-abiding citizens, and you never see justice in the courtroom. In my films, the predators don't get away with it.

You can take away the money and the fame. I don't look at myself as any of those things.

I have traveled the world creating this drink.

All I'm gonna do is just go on and do what I feel.

All I'm writing is just what I feel, that's all. I just keep it almost naked. And probably the words are so bland.

Blues is easy to play, but hard to feel.

Excuse me while I kiss the sky.

I have this one little saying, when things get too heavy just call me helium, the lightest known gas to man.

I just hate to be in one corner. I hate to be put as only a guitar player, or either only as a songwriter, or only as a tap dancer. I like to move around.

I'm the one that has to die when it's time for me to die, so let me live my life, the way I want to.

In order to change the world, you have to get your head together first.

Oscar Wilde Quotes

Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.

Whenever a man does a thoroughly stupid thing, it is always from the noblest motives.

A man can be happy with any woman as long as he does not love her

They spoil every romance by trying to make it last forever.

Only the shallow know themselves.

James Brown Quotes

Some Quotes by James Brown:

The one thing that can solve most of our problems is dancing

When I'm on stage, I'm trying to do one thing: bring people joy. Just like church does. People don't go to church to find trouble, they go there to lose it.

I taught them everything they know, but not everything I know.

Sometimes you struggle so hard to feed your family one way, you forget to feed them the other way, with spiritual nourishment. Everybody needs that.

Hair is the first thing. And teeth the second. Hair and teeth. A man got those two things he's got it all.

I've outdone anyone you can name - Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, Strauss. Irving Berlin, he wrote 1,001 tunes. I wrote 5,500.

Billy Joel Quotes

There's nothing better than good sex. But bad sex? A peanut butter and jelly sandwich is better than bad sex.

I would not leave you in your times of trouble. We never could have come this far. I took the good times, I'll take the bad times, I'll take you just the way you are.

I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints - The sinners are much more fun

I am, as I've said, merely competent. But in an age of incompetence, that makes me extraordinary.

The happiest times in my life were when my relationships were going well -- when I was in love with someone, and someone was loving me. But in my whole life, I haven't met the person I can sustain a relationship with yet. So I'm discontented about that. I'm angry with myself. I have regrets.

I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music.

You're not the only one who's made mistakes, but they're the only things that you can truly call your own.

Johnny Cash Quotes

Johnny Cash Quotes, a true personality:

You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.

So, I learn from my mistakes. It's a very painful way to learn, but without pain, the old saying is, there's no gain. I found that to be true in my life. You miss a lot of opportunities by making mistakes, but that's part of it: knowing that you're not shut out forever, and that there's a goal you still can reach.

For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide.

How well I have learned that there is no fence to sit on between heaven and hell. There is a deep, wide gulf, a chasm, and in that chasm is no place for any man.

You've got to know your limitations. I don't know what your limitations are. I found out what mine were when I was twelve. I found out that there weren't too many limitations, if I did it my way.

Eminem Quotes

I hope you like Eminem, if you don't, just avoid these Eminem Quotes:

Anybody with a sense of humor is going to put on my album and laugh from beginning to end.

Infinite was me trying to figure out how I wanted my rap style to be, how I wanted to sound on the mic and present myself. It was a growing stage. I felt like Infinite was like a demo that just got pressed up.

I think my first album opened a lot of doors for me to push the freedom of speech to the limit.

There's a difference between realness and an act, and they're an act, and they know they're an act, and they even say they're an act, they even say they're cornballs, they admit it

My father? I never knew him. Never even seen a picture of him.

My family has never been there for me. They expect things because we're blood.

A bunch of girls, swinging from a nice chandelier, landing on top of me naked...while I lay in a pool of steaming hot water!

My earliest memory was raping the babysitter when I was 5...she was 15.

We just kept moving back and forth because my mother never had a job. We kept getting kicked out of every house we were in. I believe six months was the longest we ever lived in a house.

Golf Quotess

Here are some interesting Golf Quotes you might like:

Is my friend in the bunker or is the bastard on the green? - Anon

It took me seventeen years to get 3,000 hits in baseball. I did it in one afternoon on the golf course. - Hank Aaron

In general, the short game has been most effective. Besides working hard on it I always used my imagination with a touch of feel in my hands. You should hit the ball according to what your mind dictates but previously you should visualise the shot. This can be achieved with extremely high concentration. All the difficult shots are hit with the hands. I have hit shots simply by visualising the run of the ball. I had no problem in doing this because my mind clearly indicated I could not miss. I do not stand out any particular shot because it is necessary to believe in yourself to overcome any difficulties. - Seve Ballesteros

Every time a fellow golfer gives me a piece of advice I have thought about it. A different thing is that this advice can be introduced into my golfing routine. Jaime, O’Grady and others are good friends who have wished me the best and I am grateful for that. My best game has come from the strength of my mind. When you have a balanced and rhythmical swing you should exercise it with looseness and imagination. Finally I must say as long as I believed in my own movements I had the winning results. Moreover, I still believe my swing was the best. - Seve Ballesteros

Give me golf clubs, fresh air and a beautiful partner, and you can keep the clubs and the fresh air. - Jack Benny

Malcolm X Quotes

Curtesy of CelebreQuotes:

Time is on the side of the oppressed today, it's against the oppressor. Truth is on the side of the oppressed today, it's against the oppressor. You don't need anything else.

Power never takes a back step - only in the face of more power.

The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.

Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery.

You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.

Usually when people are sad, they don't do anything. They just cry over their condition. But when they get angry, they bring about a change.

Sitting at the table doesn't make you a diner, unless you eat some of what's on that plate. Being here in America doesn't make you an American. Being born here in America doesn't make you an American.

Rita Rudner Quotes

I got kicked out of ballet class because I pulled a groin muscle. It wasn't mine.

Before I met my husband, I'd never fallen in love, though I'd stepped in it a few times.

I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.

I was a vegetarian until I started leaning toward the sunlight.

My husband gave me a necklace. It's fake. I requested fake. Maybe I'm paranoid, but in this day and age, I don't want something around my neck that's worth more than my head.

Someday I want to be rich. Some people get so rich they lose all respect for humanity. That's how rich I want to be.

When I meet a man I ask myself, 'Is this the man I want my children to spend their weekends with?'

Attitude Quotes

Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space. - Edith Sitwell

Complaining is good for you as long as you're not complaining to the person you're complaining about. - Lynn Johnston

I happen to feel that the degree of a person's intelligence is directly reflected by the number of conflicting attitudes she can bring to bear on the same topic. - Lisa Alther

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. - Herm Albright

The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes of mind. - William James

Douglas Adams Quotes

Humans are not proud of their ancestors, and rarely invite them round to dinner.

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.

In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

Life... is like a grapefruit. It's orange and squishy, and has a few pips in it, and some folks have half a one for breakfast.

You live and learn. At any rate, you live.

The last time anybody made a list of the top hundred character attributes of New Yorkers, common sense snuck in at number 79.

Nothing travels faster than the speed of light with the possible exception of bad news, which obeys its own special laws.

Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space.

  • “Some people tap their feet, some people snap their fingers, and some people sway back and forth. I just shorta do'em all together, I guess.”

Some Art Quotes

[Abstract art is] a product of the untalented, sold by the unprincipled to the utterly bewildered. - Al Capp

Art is the imposing of a pattern on experience, and our aesthetic enjoyment is recognition of the pattern. - Alfred North Whitehead

Painting: The art of protecting flat surfaces from the weather and exposing them to the critic. - Ambrose Bierce

Art is born of the observation and investigation of nature. - Cicero

Art forms of the past were really considered elitist. Bach did not compose for the masses, neither did Beethoven. It was always for patrons, aristocrats, and royalty. Now we have a sort of democratic version of that, which is to say that the audience is so splintered in its interests. - David Cronenberg

Works of art, in my opinion, are the only objects in the material universe to possess internal order, and that is why, though I don't believe that only art matters, I do believe in Art for Art's sake. - E. M. Forster

Illusions are art, for the feeling person, and it is by art that you live, if you do. - Elizabeth Bowen

I don't believe in total freedom for the artist. Left on his own, free to do anything he likes, the artist ends up doing nothing at all. If there's one thing that's dangerous for an artist, it's precisely this question of total freedom, waiting for inspiration and all the rest of it. - Federico Fellini

Metallica Quotes

Less jaws drop now, but I still see some and I like that.

Some guy was bowing to me at the Marguee the other night, seriously! And I was shouting at him, 'Stop it - let me buy you a beer.'

It's all fun and games 'till someone loses an eye, then it's just fun you can't see

I remember back when I stood in line for 3 hours waiting for autographs, and when the star just hopped into his limo, and took off, I'd think 'You dick, I hate you.' I'd go home, rip down all his posters...

People probably thought 'Oh, they're not going to do the heavy lyrics now because of what happened.' Man, those lyrics mean a lot more to me now.

I love my job, play softball and have a great life. Things are a hell of a lot better now than when I was 21.

When people start copying your style, you know that something must be happening.

This s@#$ (AIDS) scares me. You know, one time and you're dead! Touring is the dangerous part. A lot of bands are going to be in trouble the way they carry on. I mean, we've been pretty bad, but on the last tour, no way! It was kinda, 'Screw that!' Some of the roadies are pretty sick, as far as wearing rubbers or whatever. I don't know. I've never done that before...ha ha ha...and that's only MAYBE safe. It's very unhappening, this whole thing.

Requiem for a Dream Quotes

Here are some memorable quotes from the popular and yet unpopular movie "Requiem for a Dream":

Purple in the morning, blue in the afternoon, and orange in the evening. Just like that, one, two, three, four.

I love you Harry. You make me feel like a person.
Marion, you are the most beautiful girl in the world. You are my dream.

I love you, Harry. You make me feel like a person. Like I'm me... and I'm beautiful.
I love you, Harry. You make me feel like a person. Like I'm me... and I'm beautiful.

That's nice, Harry. Other people have told me that before, and it was meaningless. When you say it, I hear it.

Somebody like you can really make things all right for me.

That's the trouble with ya New York dope fiends. Ya got a rotten attitude.

I'm somebody now, Harry. Everybody likes me. Soon, millions of people will see me and they'll all like me. I'll tell them about you, and your father, how good he was to us. Remember? It's a reason to get up in the morning. It's a reason to lose weight, to fit in the red dress. It's a reason to smile. It makes tomorrow all right. What have I got Harry, hm? Why should I even make the bed, or wash the dishes? I do them, but why should I? I'm alone. Your father's gone, you're gone. I got no one to care for. What have I got, Harry? I'm lonely. I'm old.
You got friends, Ma.
Ah, it's not the same. They don't need me. I like the way I feel. I like thinking about the red dress and the television and you and your father. Now when I get the sun, I smile.

California, here we come.
It's Florida, Ty. Florida.
California, Florida, whatever. Either way, your pale ass is getting a tan.

Paris Hilton Quotes

The only rule is don't be boring.

I got my eye on you boy, and when I get my eye on something, it's like search and destroy.

A lot of women feel it's a man's world. Some people think all you need to do is marry a rich guy, and you don't need to do anything with your life.... I would hate that. I don't care whether he has money or he doesn't, because I don't need it, and that's a good feeling that I don't have to worry about that.

You should live everyday like it's your birthday.

Life is too short to blend in.

I'm judged because of something that an ex-boyfriend did to me. I'm not a slut at all. I've only had a few boyfriends. And I don't even do anything with anyone--it's just the media making stuff up ... I'm far less promiscuous than any of my friends.

I'm totally normal. I think it's obnoxious when people demand limos or bodyguards. I eat at McDonald's or Taco Bell. My parents always taught us to be humble. We're not spoiled.

At parties, everyone always thinks I'm drinking--but actually I rarely drink. I live on energy drinks, basically. I LOVE Vitamin Water. I have cases in my house. I drink energy drinks and Vitamin Water all night. That's how I manage to stay up late and never smudge my makeup or mess up my hair. You can see all these girls leaving a party at the end of the night, and they look terrible because they were too out of it to reapply their makeup or even glance in a mirror. This is a huge mistake. People remember how you look when you leave as much as they remember how you looked when you arrived.

Kanye West Quotes

Why everything that's supposed to be bad/Make me feel so good?

If you have the opportunity to play this game of life you need to appreciate every moment. a lot of people don`t appreciate the moment until it`s passed.

George Bush doesn't care about black people, ... They're saying black families are looting and white families are just looking for food...they're giving the (Army) permission to shoot us.

I don't know whats better gettin laid or gettin paid.

Keep your nose out the sky, keep your heart to god, and keep your face to the raising sun.

Now I can let these dream killers kill my self esteem-or use my arrogance as steam to power my dreams!

If you see a black family, it's looting, but if it's a white family they are looking for food.

Got a light skinned friend, look like Michael Jackson,
Got a dark skinned friend, look like Michael Jackson.

They say, he must had an angel, cuss look how death missed his ass. Unbreakable, what you thought they'd call me Mr. Glass?

Thank god im not too cool for the safebelt.

Hulk Hogan Quotes

Some Hulk Hogan quotes (real name something like Bolea but who really cares? - everybody knows him as Hulk Hogan). This are 5 of the most well known:

Hopefully I can become the Babe Ruth of the World Wrestling Federation and be the champion at the same time.

If I do hit that rope and do a hop, skip and a jump and get up as high as I can, I'm just going to hold my breath, because I know i'm going to hear all kinds of scar tissue popping.

I feel really good right now. It will really be a tough decision. It's so hard to give up what you love doing. Hanging up the boots will not be an easy thing to do.

To all my little Hulkamaniacs, say your prayers, take your vitamins and you will never go wrong.

We're probably the opposite of the Osbournes. We run a very tight ship.

Ozzy Osbourne Quotes

Here are some quotes by the prince of darkness, Ozzy Osbourne:

Bubbles! Oh come on Sharon! I'm fucking Ozzy Osbourne, I'm the Prince of fucking Darkness. Evil! Evil! What's fucking evil about a shitload of bubbles!?

Dogs smoke in France.

Every time I mention the vagina doctor, you get this little smirk on your face. What have you been up to?

I can honestly say, all the bad things that ever happened to me were directly, directly attributed to drugs and alcohol. I mean, I would never urinate at the Alamo at nine o'clock in the morning dressed in a woman's evening dress sober.

I got rabies shots for biting the head off a bat but that's OK - the bat had to get Ozzy shots.

I have a message for anyone coming to the Ozzfest this summer [Summer, 2000]: If you're planning to jump up onstage during my set, please do not give me any bear hugs, because they fucking hurt. Listen to me, I'm dead serious. On the first night of last year's tour, this enormous guy jumped up onstage and gave me a huge bear hug. He crushed 3 of my ribs and I had to do the whole tour in absolute agony. I couldn't believe it, the first fucking show!

Angelina Jolie Quotes

Here are some quotes by the very sensual Angelina Jolie

All women do have a different sense of sexuality, or sense of fun, or sense of like what's sexy or cool or tough.

Everyone got kind of crazy with me mentioning I was in love with a woman.

I am odd-looking. I sometimes think I look like a funny Muppet.

I don't believe in guilt, I believe in living on impulse as long as you never intentionally hurt another person, and don't judge people in your life. I think you should live completely free.

I don't think the money people in Hollywood have ever thought I was normal, but I am dedicated to my work and that's what counts.

I like someone who is a little crazy but coming from a good place. I think scars are sexy because it means you made a mistake that led to a mess.

I like to hide behind the characters I play. Despite the public perception, I am a very private person who has a hard time with the fame thing.

Britney Spears Quotes

Christina Aguilera and I are friends no matter what the media makes up.

Every night, I have to read a book, so that my mind will stop thinking about things that I stress about.

I always call my cousin because we're so close. We're almost like sisters, and we're also close because our moms are sisters.

I always wanted to be a singer, it's what I wanted to do since I was little. I'm doing it now and I couldn't be happier.

I don't really have time to sit down and write. But when I think of a melody, I call up my answering machine and sing it, so I won't forget it.

I don't understand the whole dating thing. I know right off the bat if I'm interested in someone, and I don't want them to waste their money on me and take me out to eat if I know I'm not interested in that person.

I want to be an artist that everyone can relate to, that's young, happy and fun.

Bill Gates Quotes

640K ought to be enough for anybody.

AIDS is a disease that is hard to talk about. The ideal thing would be to have a 100 percent effective AIDS vaccine.

As you improve health in a society, population growth goes down. You know, I thought it was... before I learned about it, I thought it was paradoxical.

At Microsoft there are lots of brilliant ideas but the image is that they all come from the top - I'm afraid that's not quite right.

Hey, I never told anyone to buy my stock! Besides, no one is less happy than I am with the performance of Microsoft stock! I've lost tens of billions of dollars this year-if you check, you'll see that that's more than most people make in a lifetime!

I do think this next century, hopefully, will be about a more global view. Where you don't just think, yes my country is doing well, but you think about the world at large.

I have 100 billion dollars... You realize I could spend 3 million dollars a day, every day, for the next 100 years? And that's if I don't make another dime. Tell you what-I'll buy your right arm for a million dollars. I give you a million bucks, and I get to sever your arm right here.

Some George W Bush Quotes

A dictatorship would be a heck of a lot easier, there's no question about it.

After the chaos and carnage of September 11th, it is not enough to serve our enemies with legal papers.

America is a friend to the people of Iraq. Our demands are directed only at the regime that enslaves them and threatens us. When these demands are met, the first and greatest benefit will come to Iraqi men, women and children.

America is a Nation with a mission - and that mission comes from our most basic beliefs. We have no desire to dominate, no ambitions of empire. Our aim is a democratic peace - a peace founded upon the dignity and rights of every man and woman.

America stands for liberty, for the pursuit of happiness and for the unalienable right for life. This right to life cannot be granted or denied by government because it does not come from government, it comes from the creator of life.

Any government that supports, protects or harbours terrorists is complicit in the murder of the innocent and equally guilty of terrorist crimes.

Every nation in every region now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.

Great tragedy has come to us, and we are meeting it with the best that is in our country, with courage and concern for others because this is America. This is who we are.

To have enjoy'd the sun,
To have lived light in the spring,
To have loved, to have thought, to have done..." - Matthew Arnold

"Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers today;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year." - Robert Frost

J. Robert Oppenheimer Quotes

J. Robert Oppenheimer is a renowned American physicist that is known because he was the director in charge with the Manhattan Project. It was the World War II effort to creat the first nuclear weapons. Basically he is known as the "father of the atomic bomb"

"Any man whose errors take ten years to correct is quite a man."

"I am become death, the destroyer of worlds."

Both the man of science and the man of action live always at the edge of mystery, surrounded by it."

"No man should escape our universities without knowing how little he knows."

"In some sort of crude sense, which no vulgarity, no humor, no overstatement can quite extinguish, the physicists have known sin; and this is a knowledge which they cannot lose."

"The atomic bomb made the prospect of future war unendurable. It has led us up those last few steps to the mountain pass; and beyond there is a different country. "

"The open society, the unrestricted access to knowledge, the unplanned and uninhibited association of men for its furtherance - these are what may make a vast, complex, ever growing, ever changing, ever more specialized and expert technological world, nevertheless a world of human community."

The optimist thinks this is the best of all possible worlds. The pessimist fears it is true."

"There must be no barriers for freedom of inquiry. There is no place for dogma in science. The scientist is free, and must be free to ask any question, to doubt any asssertion, to seek for any evidence, to correct any errors."

"There are children playing in the streets who could solve some of my top problems in physics, because they have modes of sensory perception that I lost long ago."

"When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and you argue about what to do about it only after you have had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb."
