Although it’s not something I’m particularly proud of, I’m willing to admit that, in addition to whiling away the long stretches of time in the air and waiting in airport lounges reading the ‘New Yorker’ and ‘New York Times’ on my Kindle, I’ve picked up the occasional tabloid magazine.

When we were scared about 9/11, we federalized the airport security, we spent millions for body armor for dogs in Ohio. All that over-reaction comes from fear and government – bad combination.
When checking in at an airport, no matter how rude the check-in person is to you, always smile and be nice because you don’t know what kind of day they’ve had.

I don’t need the water to be inspired. My stories inspire me, not the location of where I’m parked. And good thing, since I’ve had to finish books in airports, in the RV we used to have, the lake house, while on vacation, at home, in the kitchen when my office PC was on the fritz.

I remember, once I was going through Nice airport with Roger Moore, and these kids came up and asked for our autographs. Afterwards, Roger said, ‘It must be very strange for you.

Whenever I am at the airport, I always manage to get a hug from the security personnel present at the security check.

My family and I have a little joke that if I’m feeling particularly blue, and nobody cares about me, I should just go to the airport! That is where I am most recognized.
We will build new roads, and highways, and bridges, and airports, and tunnels, and railways all across our wonderful nation.
I am a pretty recognizable, like, I walk through the airport or something, you are going to spot me right away.
We know that the airports are not protected as they should be protected. The terminals are public areas, wide open – anyone can go and walk at any terminal he wants.
The impact that you can leave on the other person through your films holds way more weight than just being seen at a party or any other appearance, or being seen at a freaking airport.
I wrapped a movie called ‘Zombieland,’ in which I was constantly under assault by zombies, then flew to New York, still very much in character. With my daughter at the airport I was startled by a paparazzo, who I quite understandably mistook for a zombie.
There are twice as many knitters as golfers in North America. Still, if you walk into any airport in North America, you can find a golf magazine but not a knitting magazine, even though you can’t golf on a plane.
Donald Trump wouldn’t work on paper. Obnoxious, crass, boastful, and vulgar, with garish tastes and a Stepford wife – as a fictional character, he’d seem too crudely drawn. Even in a trashy airport thriller, readers wouldn’t buy such a boor as president.
From the time I was a little itty-bitty kid, I was going to the airport every day. I began to study all the airplanes, and I’d draw all the airplanes.
Anticipating that most poetry will be worse than carrying heavy luggage through O’Hare Airport, the public, to its loss, reads very little of it.
I can tell you, I was in Seoul, Korea, and I had people come up to me in the airport and say ‘Congratulations on your induction into the WWE Hall of Fame.’ Of course, I can go to Garden City, Kan., and get the same kind of reception. It truly is an honor.
Egyptian drumming happens to be a favorite of mine. It’s a really simple instrument, but it’s really difficult to play. You can take it anywhere with you – you can play it in your room, in an airport. It’s very quiet, so you explore the quiet side.
When you go for business, you just see the airport, the offices, cities. You never see what 80 per cent of the population does in a country, so if you want to understand what Indonesia is made of, or the depths of China or India, you have to go and see.
I don’t like getting patted down and taking off my shoes at the airport.
So many of our businesses rely on green card holders – how are we supposed to attract these people if they think they’ll be detained at the airport if they go abroad for a wedding or just to show their baby to relatives?
Naming me ‘Twinkle’ was a foolproof way of making sure that I would get teased throughout my life, have immigration officers at various airports stare at my passport and shake with hysterical laughter, and strangers stalk me with WhatsApp messages like, ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, little star, I hope you get hit by a car!’
I’ve travelled the world with football, but probably in a privileged way. We’ve travelled, and travelling means going from an airport to the pitch to the hotel. I haven’t really seen or explored things.
You show up in Paris, and on the drive from the airport to the hotel you’re like, ‘This is so cool! I want to see something! I want to go to the Eiffel Tower!’ And then you leave the next morning. You think, Oh, I didn’t get to do anything. I tell people: I’ve been just about everywhere, but I’ve seen nothing.
You know what I’ve always wanted to do? I’ve always wanted to put a lung in a suitcase and send it through an airport security check. In effect, the guard would be looking at an X-ray of a lung.
I often find there’s an equal benefit to being in a comfortable, well rested studio session, but also the more pressured headspace of being in an airport or working at 7 A.M., fresh from the club with the music still ringing in your ears.
Sometimes it feels like I spend half my time in planes or airports.
I mostly get noticed in shopping malls, airports, red states. The Cheesecake Factory. I am more likely to get stopped in San Antonio or Oakland than in New York or L.A.
I have a following, but it’s small. I have this level of fame where people spot me in the airport, consistently, but they always think they’re the only one who ever has. People will think they win a prize when they recognize me.
Everything has changed. The flying changed. The airports have changed.
I truly believe that at some point they’re going to have kiosks in every NBA arena, like they do at the airport when you get your boarding pass, so you can bet on the games.
Anywhere I go, there is always an incredible crowd that follows me. In Rome, as I land at the airport, even the men kiss me. I love Rome.
A witticism in an airport security line is like a Swiss tap – turn it on, and you instantly find yourself in hot water.
I would vote for Bush if for no other reason than to be at the airport waving off all the people who say they are going to London if he wins again. Someone has got to stay behind.
I have learnt that I am incapable of packing the right amount of clothing, probably because I start 10 minutes before I’m supposed to leave, and that I truly hate airports.
It’s funny, when I’m in airports and I’m walking around, maybe feeling a little tired in my sweatpants and not wanting to talk to folks, I just put on my sunglasses. And usually it works every time.
Who can guarantee that if we allow the Palestinians to establish a state, we won’t find rockets there as well, half a mile from the airport or 10 miles from Tel Aviv?
If, by chance, you were to meet me at the Casablanca airport or on a boat sailing from Tangiers, you would think me self-confident, but I am not. Even now, at my age, I am frightened when crossing borders because I am afraid of failing to understand strangers.
I’m constantly complimented for my voice, even by random people at the airport!
I have to put my father over because he really taught me a lot, especially when it comes to out-of-the-ring psychology and how to react when you’re approached by fans after a show or in the airport. It might sound silly, but a lot of those things come into play when you’re playing a character.
I remember I’d be sleeping in the airport at 5 o’clock in the morning, traveling three hours, and playing a game that day. We never even chartered until my third year in the NBA.
Yeah, people following me down the street and at the airport and all that. I can’t imagine what it must be like for people who are, you know, actually famous.
When you’re standing in line at the airport, and your shoes are off, your belt is off, and your personal belongings are being closely scrutinized, and you’re standing with your hands in the air, waiting to be patted down, do you feel protected? I don’t. I feel like I’m the enemy.
