Words matter. These are the best Ted Quotes from famous people such as Shane Koyczan, Graham Linehan, Brendan Hunt, Cameron Russell, Nicholas Hammond, and they’re great for sharing with your friends.
Having seen TED from a distance, I always thought if ever there was a place for someone like me, the outcasts, people who maintained who they are despite being told what they were, it was TED.
I feel that shows like ‘Ted’ and ‘The IT Crowd’ are very much more enjoyable watching with friends around a telly.
The same thing that happened to Ted Lasso in the show, his expansion beyond those initial perceptions, happened to ‘Ted Lasso,’ the show. People thought it would be one thing, but no, it’s a whole lot more.
I haven’t done the profoundly impactful work many TED speakers have.
Ted Danson was wonderful, years before ‘Cheers.’
It has to be a partnership. I go back to Ted Thompson’s opening press conference, and he talked about partnership. We had a hell of a partnership for 12 years.
I should give a TED Talk about my TV-marathoning skills. It’s my sport.
When I go back to Texas, I travel the state, and I see people all the time who come up to me, men and women across Texas, and they grab me by the shoulder, and they’re afraid. They say, ‘Ted, you know, I just lost my health insurance. I got a child with diabetes. I’m scared. Please stop this from happening.’

We were thrilled and we were privileged to be part of a revolution, because make no mistake about it, Ted Turner changed the world with CNN.
People were always saying, ‘are you going to do a film of any of the characters in the TV show.’ The only ones that were appropriate were Kevin and Perry. There’s a precedent with ‘Wayne’s World’ and the ‘Bill And Ted’ films.
That said, I should also add that I learned a great deal from being allowed in these privileged circles and am grateful for the opportunity to have worked closely with some of the most powerful and successful people in the business including Steven Spielberg and Ted Turner.
I would love to do something with space. I’m obsessed with it. I just can’t stop reading about it or watching videos about it or listening to TED Talks about it.
Well, the senators I’ve enjoyed working with the most would be Ted Kennedy and Kent Conrad, because they were both either chairman or ranking member of the committee I was chairman or ranking member of. And in both instances they were just great people to work with.
Here’s what I think is good about ‘Ted Lasso’ and what I’m proud of in it, as a writer: It’s about kindness and teamwork and empathy, and being curious and not judgmental, but it does all of that through storytelling and plot.
The time that Ted and I spend talking about our careers is almost infinitesimally small. We mostly talk about our kids and our grandkids. I think we talk about our careers if something funny happened at work. We’re very childlike in many ways.
In making the jump from a local program to the showcase of a coast-to-coast broadcast, Ted Yates and I were determined to maintain the candid, sometimes combative style we’d introduced on ‘Night Beat.’ But that proved easier said than done.
Ted Cruz cut his teeth politically in Texas on disrupting the Republican establishment, and Texans love a fighter. It’s the same thing that has made me successful is that when people look at me, they see a fighter, somebody who takes on the establishment, who isn’t intimidated, and is willing to kick through doors.
I was a contact hitter my whole career but I learned how to handle the ball inside. And Ted Williams played a big part in that. He gave me the advice on how to handle inside pitches.
Ted Kennedy devoted his lifetime to protecting those most in need, and tens of millions of Americans have been the beneficiaries.
So when I got to be about 13 or 14, I started listening – even though my parents music was way cool – to contemporary hard rock at that time, which was Aerosmith, Cheap Trick, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Ted Nugent and all that, and that’s just where I came from.
I once had an extraordinary experience with former prime minister Ted Heath. Both of his eyes, including the whites, turned jet black, and I seemed to be looking into two black holes.
I have a fantasy where Ted Turner is elected President but refuses because he doesn’t want to give up power.
Whenever I get in a car and I’m going to or from the airport or the train station, I put on a TED Talk using the TED app. It makes the trip go by super fast, and it fills my sails.
I look at myself more as a storyteller than a screenwriter, as pretentious as that may sound, but that’s what really attracts me to TED Talks. For me, the really effective ones are being presented by expert storytellers.
When I think about athletes, probably my favorite guest of all time among baseball players was Ted Williams.
I’m not Ted Nugent. My house is run, essentially, by an adopted, fully clawed cat with a mean nature. I would never hunt. I would never wear fur. I would never go to a bullfight. I’m not really a meat and potatoes guy.
They say ‘Ted Cruz can’t win.’ Really? Have you talked to Ted?
Ted Geisel was trying to make a statement about awareness and personal responsibility. He was very clear about that. But the ideas and themes in ‘The Lorax’ go beyond a love of trees. It’s also a story about the dangers of greed and the power of redemption. That’s what makes it a timeless tale.
Jeb Bush has been labeled ‘low energy,’ and he will be so for the rest of his life, because Mr. Trump labeled him that way. He’s a master brander. Marco Rubio is going to be ‘Little Marco’ forever. Ted Cruz is ‘Lyin’ Ted,’ because that’s what people understand.
I don’t think I’ve ever been accused of being faddish. I’m more Marks & Spencer than Ted Baker.
I read a lot of true crime growing up – ‘The Stranger Beside Me’ by Ann Rule about Ted Bundy.
I attended TED in 2007 and 2008, the last two years the conference was held in Monterey.
A white male Mormon millionaire was not gonna beat Ted Kennedy in Massachusetts, but someone deserved to go out there and give him a real run for his money.
Something I think is amazing about ‘Ted Lasso,’ and we didn’t know if it would work, but it’s funny when you think about it, in that it’s quite unique, but from the responses that we’re getting, it seems to be a show that people watch with their families.
When I first arrived in WWE after having a somewhat high profile on-air role in WCW, it was WrestleMania season. In a way, I was perceived to be the voice of WCW after the Ted Turner/TBS buyout of Jim Crockett Promotions. That ‘claim to fame’ did not endear me to many WWE personnel.
You’ve heard this phrase and I don’t think I understood it until I was making ‘Ted Lasso,’ this thing of ‘the sandbox.’ It’s like we build the sandbox, we have the characters, we’ve got the action figures, and Season 2, we get to play with them and move them around.
Ted Williams, an extraordinary hitter in his day, has said the swing starts in the hips, and Sosa arrived with one of the strongest lower bodies in the game.
A man has to have goals – for a day, for a lifetime – and that was mine, to have people say, ‘There goes Ted Williams, the greatest hitter who ever lived.’
I loved 1990s television: ‘The Fast Show,’ ‘Father Ted,’ ‘Harry Enfield.’ ‘Clive Anderson Talks Back.’
When I came back from my first TED, very few people knew what it was. But around the time I was sitting down to write ‘Where’d You Go, Bernadette,’ in 2010, TED was exploding.
I believe Ted Cruz is the right candidate for the right time in our country’s history. A proven leader and a consistent conservative who will fight the Washington cartel and stand up for the American people.
Father Ted’ was written by Irish people, so that was fine, but around the time we were shooting it ‘EastEnders’ went to Ireland and represented it as this terribly backward society where people were going around with one eye and drunk.
I did around 100 episodes as Ted without the band, but the 20 I did with The Blanks are the only ones anyone ever seems to remember.
I’m over the moon to play an iconic character like Ted Hastings and for my career to be defined by this role – that’s a place very few actors get to.
My father is a well known artist, Ted Dyer, who has been painting for many years. Our work is very different, but growing up surrounded by paintings, paints, easels and art books does have an effect.
In light of the exit from the race by Ted Cruz and John Kasich, it is now clear that Donald Trump will accumulate the delegates necessary to be nominated by the Republican Party.
My all-time favorite TED talks are Brene Brown’s ‘The Power of Vulnerability’ and Sir Ken Robinson’s ‘Do Schools Kill Creativity.’
In terms of being typecast, if you do something like Father Ted that infiltrates the public’s imagination to the extent that it did, I think realistically you’re not going to be asked to do something radically different from that very often. But it’s not a problem.
