Actually Maddy is my name. But I feel that whenever you address somebody, there needs to be certain amount of dignity rendered to it – irrespective of whether it’s a film star or somebody you are fond of. I find it very pleasing when somebody refers to me as ‘Mr. Madhavan’ or ‘Sir’ or ‘Mr. Maddy.’

Freja Beha Erichsen

I hope that I dress for my age. Because there’s no need to be dowdy, is there? But I don’t go with all the colours that everybody is wearing. I’m not very fond of lime green or orange, so I don’t do that. I read all the fashion magazines, but most things are totally unsuitable for somebody of 79.

Steven Bauer
I’m not particularly fond of playing villains. I do want to be a working actor, and I’ve had to look at what was offered to me, what roles I could get, and what I could do with them.

Suzuka Nakamoto
I suppose I prefer kind of epic dramas like, oh, I don'

I suppose I prefer kind of epic dramas like, oh, I don’t know… ‘Lawrence Of Arabia’ or ‘Apocalypse Now’; those are the movies that I have a tendency to be most fond of.

A peasant becomes fond of his pig and is glad to salt away its pork. What is significant, and is so difficult for the urban stranger to understand, is that the two statements are connected by an and not by a but.
John Berger
I am really fond of accessorizing my car. If the world outside isn’t too good looking, at least the car should be nice and comfortable from within.

Peter Cushing
When at the CIA, I was fond of saying that many jihadis join the movement for the same reasons that young Americans join the Crips and the Bloods: youthful alienation, the need to belong to something greater than self, the search for meaningful identity. But it also matters what gang you join.

I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.

Ruth Rendell
I’m supposed to have a Ph.D. on the subject of women. But the truth is I’ve flunked more often than not. I’m very fond of women; I admire them. But, like all men, I don’t understand them.

Arijit Singh

I’m fond of my werecats, if only because I have four real-world felines staring at me as I type.
Cynthia Leitich Smith
I'm not fond of the idea of doing ballet for ballet's s

I’m not fond of the idea of doing ballet for ballet’s sake, because dancers get exploited and they’re not paid well. They do it for the love.
Sergei Polunin
I’m very fond of Amy Schumer. I think she’s terrific, an enormous talent.
Norman Lloyd
It’s true that at the time I was fond of Kurt Vonnegut and Richard Brautigan, and it was from them that I learned about this kind of simple, swift-paced style, but the main reason for the style of my first novel is that I simply did not have the time to write sustained prose.
Haruki Murakami
When I was growing up in New Jersey, my mom would regularly take my sister and I into the city to see shows. I have many fond memories of standing in the half-price ticket line in Times Square and going to matinees.
Trey Anastasio
I was warped early by Ray Bradbury and Edgar Allan Poe. I was very fond of Franz Kafka.
Margaret Atwood
I like the ‘Blackwell’ adventure games, and I’m fond of some of Telltale’s games, like ‘Hector’ and ‘Puzzle Agent’ – simple stories, but fun. I thought ‘Heavy Rain’ was amazing.
Jane Jensen
I don’t know why ‘Midsomer Murders’ is so popular; I’ve asked this many times and I’ve asked the Germans particularly because I’ve become very fond of them, to be honest. And they say it’s the irony, the sense of humour and so on.
John Nettles
I think sometimes I’m more fond of doing the research for the character because you learn so much. Sometimes shooting is really difficult because you wake up early and you’re always hurrying. And sometimes I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m here and there.
Bai Ling
I like cinema. I am very fond of it. But from time to time I feel like having some time on my own.
Patrice Leconte
I’ve always had fond feelings about Asia.
Nicolas Anelka
I have such fond memories of watching ‘Doctor Who’ when I was a kid and growing up, that if I’ve left anybody anywhere with memories as fond, then I feel like I’ve done my job.
David Tennant
We are so fond on one another because our ailments are the same.
Jonathan Swift
I love spending time with my grandkids, and Taimur is the youngest, so everyone is so fond of him. He is not cranky, but a bit naughty and, yeah, smart, too.
Randhir Kapoor
Living big and joyful and content is almost always the result of our finding satisfaction in life’s ordinary day-to-day pleasures. And God must be fond of them, too, for He made so many of them for us to enjoy.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
I eat healthy – I have never been fond of eating oily food right since childhood.
Suhasini Mulay
I see Calcutta as a place where I have a lot of memories… a lot of fond memories of coming back here and helping the children.
Saroo Brierley
True, the name of the product wasn’t so great. Kindle? It was cute and sinister at the same time – worse than Edsel, or Probe, or Microsoft’s Bob. But one forgives a bad name. One even comes to be fond of a bad name, if the product itself is delightful.
Nicholson Baker
I have grown fond of the food which is made in Barkas, and I try to go there at least once a week. Some of the food joints don’t even have a proper name, but it’s so different compared to rest of the places in Hyderabad.
Rana Daggubati
Every time I return here, I always have fond memories of my time with Fiorentina.
Roberto Baggio
I’ve been lucky to be a part of many blockbuster movies… in which it’s hard to get to that level of being memorable, but I still have fond memories of ‘Independence Day,’ to be sure. There are also many small ones I’ve had that give me many fond memories.
Bill Pullman
As a group, anthropologists are not too fond of people who work in the business world.
Helen Fisher
I am not fond of lengthy descriptions of phony artworks.
Rachel Kushner
I am not one who was born in the possession of knowledge; I am one who is fond of antiquity, and earnest in seeking it there.
I have fond memories of Chris Penn, who’s sadly not with us. He always made me laugh – it was great to be with him.
Kevin Bacon
I’m not particularly fond of Shoah jokes, yet there is one I cannot forget: Why was Auschwitz an optimistic place? Because all the pessimists were already in New York by then.
Yair Lapid
This is my philosophy since ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Battlestar’: You have to be willing to have fandom hate what you’re doing or love it and not care either way on a certain level, because you cannot become a slave to their emotion or their vote. It’s not a democracy, as I’m always fond of saying.
Ronald D. Moore
I was born in Den Bosch, where the painter Hieronymus Bosch named himself after. And so I’ve always been very fond of this painter who lived and worked in the 15th century.
Frans de Waal
I have very fond memories of swimming in Walden Pond when we lived in Boston. You’d swim past a log and see all these turtles sunning themselves. Slightly disturbing if you thought about how many more were swimming around your toes, but also rather wonderful.
Mark Haddon
I am fond of my writing in the film ‘Mondi Mogudu Penki Pellam,’ one of the first films to feature a mainstream actor like Vijayashanti speaking in Karimnagar-slang.
Tanikella Bharani
No jealousy their dawn of love overcast, nor blasted were their wedded days with strife; each season looked delightful as it past, to the fond husband and the faithful wife.
James Beattie
I have very fond memories of growing up in Greece, of my brothers and I causing chaos and climbing up trees, which is really cool. Back then, we didn’t have all the video games and all that stuff. We just had each other, and we played on the street.
Tracy Spiridakos
I don't know if this is the kind of retrospective analy

I don’t know if this is the kind of retrospective analysis that people are fond of applying to their work or actions, but it feels like I knew I was going to be famous and I knew that an element of that would be traumatic, so that if I could make myself something big and otherworldly, it would be a kind of defence.
Russell Brand
When it comes to judicial nominations, President Barack Obama and Senate Democrats are fond of reminding Republicans that elections have consequences.
Ron Johnson
I am very fond of Jeb Bush. He’s a friend; he was a terrific governor of Florida. I worked with him on some immigration and education issues.
Condoleezza Rice
When I went to Egypt right after 9/11 I was very upset. I used to live in Egypt. I had a lot of friends there. I spent two years teaching there. I had very fond feelings for that part of the world, and the fact that a culture I liked so much had attacked my own culture was really very upsetting to me.
Lawrence Wright
I am fond of turkey with all the stuffing, which is my favourite!
Catherine Tresa
I have fond memories of my kabaddi exploits at Lawrence School. I also enjoyed tennis and swimming.
Anand Mahindra
You have to be very fond of men. Very, very fond. You have to be very fond of them to love them. Otherwise they’re simply unbearable.
Marguerite Duras
I really spent the better part of the first 12 years of my career wrestling for Mid South. Fond memories, but a grueling territory.
Ted DiBiase Sr.
Hrithik is a great help to me while I compose the music for our films. He gives his inputs to us. He sits with me and learns a lot about music too. He is very fond of learning and very involved in the filmmaking process.
Rajesh Roshan
None are so fond of secrets as those who do not mean to keep them.
Charles Caleb Colton
I happen to be quite fond of staying out late and sleeping the day away.
Rachel Nichols
My parents-in-law, brother-in-law and everyone else are so fond of my son, Kabir. I believe raising him in a joint family set-up will make him more mature and caring.
Amrapali Gupta
I am particularly fond of the late President Nelson Mandela. His speeches and courage changed my life and how I see myself. Mandela changed minds, changed lives, and changed the world.
Kenya Moore
I’ve done all my schooling at Chennai – it’s always home for me. All my growing up years have been spent here, and I have really fond memories associated with the city.
Dulquer Salmaan
It is well that war is so terrible, otherwise we should grow too fond of it.
Robert E. Lee
Reading is a form of prayer, a guided meditation that briefly makes us believe we’re someone else, disrupting the delusion that we’re permanent and at the center of the universe. Suddenly (we’re saved!) other people are real again, and we’re fond of them.
George Saunders
Ask a celebrity what social cause he or she wants to take up, and many would say utopic things. For me, however, the decision is very clear… I want to do something for children, a category of people I am genuinely fond of.
Sushmita Sen
1985 – That was my time in New York, and I have such poetic, fond memories.
George C. Wolfe
I’ll forever be grateful to NPR that they gave me such extraordinary freedom… It was 37 years of a fond relationship.
Frank Deford
My mum was always extremely political. I have fond memories of making signs as a child for the nuclear disarmament protests at Greenham Common, or helping her bake cakes for them.
Jess Phillips
From a child I was fond of reading, and all the little money that came into my hands was ever laid out in books. Pleased with the ‘Pilgrim’s Progress,’ my first collection was of John Bunyan’s works in separate little volumes.
Benjamin Franklin
I have fond memories from growing up in Switzerland and drinking a glass of warm milk with a spoonful of honey before bed.
Daniel Humm
I have never really been fond of animals. I certainly wasn’t an ‘animal lover’ when I became involved in the movement. I just came to be persuaded that animals should be treated as independent sentient beings, not as means to human ends.
Peter Singer
I’m very fond of Glasgow, particularly the West End. The whole stretch of the west coast of Scotland from Loch Lomond up through Mallaig to the Kyle of Localsh is so beautiful.
John Niven
I will never play in England again, but I still actually look back with fond memories at some moments.
Diego Forlan
In the aftermath of September 11, you can’t – as Tony Blair was so fond of suggesting – draw a line under historical events. They don’t go away. They come back.
Nick Harkaway
I’m not too fond of the typical Australian activities or culture. I’m not into surfing – that’s what I’m trying to say.
Jens Lekman
My favorite Luna disc is our third, ‘Penthouse,’ a sparkly, moody album that works from track one all the way to track 11. Tom Verlaine of Television and Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab make guest appearances. I am also fond of the final Luna album, ‘Rendezvous.’
Dean Wareham
I’ve always been fond of my heritage, particularly my Irish heritage. But I’m also from all over the world.
Eugene Simon
The heart of the matter is that everybody starts video games as a beginner. Then, after going through a lot of experiences and becoming more and more fond of video games, they become the experts.
Satoru Iwata
You’ll always be close to somebody that you worked with very intimately for so long, and you become really fond of each other.
Diana Rigg
I have some fond memories - a couple of the nights on t

I have some fond memories – a couple of the nights on the town … a couple of songs I wrote when I was messed up that I’m sure wouldn’t have come out of me unless I was messed up. It’s kind of happy-sad about those days – I could do anything I wanted to. I did. And now I don’t want to do any of that.
Joe Walsh
I’ve always been very fond of animals.
Victoria Pendleton
There were few people, perhaps, more passionately fond of travelling, and seeing fresh places, and new scenes, than myself; but now, since, by the grace of God, I have seen beauty in the Lord Jesus, I have lost my taste for these things.
George Muller
I’m not too fond of really cool design. I’ve got quite kitsch taste really, in things like tableware. I’m quite a sucker for 1930s pressed glass.
Kevin McCloud
I have never used makeup in my life. I’m not fond of it at all. I love myself the way I am, and I try my best not to use it – the only things I use are sun screen and eyeliner.
Sai Pallavi
I’ve got a lot of very fond memories playing football from the ages of four.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
We were facing a financial crunch in the early 1970s because Mera Naam Joker’ didn’t work and we suffered huge losses due to that. My father was very fond of Mera Naam Joker’ and made it with a lot of passion, love and money according to those days. But it flopped.
Randhir Kapoor
I like Ranchi’s pleasant weather, more so because I am fond of the rainy season. Wherever I go, my visit ushers in the monsoons.
I’ve always been fond of acoustic music.
Ian Anderson
I started in theatre, in Liverpool, which is where I’m from, and which I love as a city. I acted at the Liverpool Playhouse, and I have very fond memories of it, but although I love the theatre I’m in love with film.
Rita Tushingham
I am very fond of Edith Wharton. She’s quite high brow but also a great storyteller. My favorite is ‘The House of Mirth.’ I also like ‘The Reef.’
Ken Follett
Most of us have fond memories of food from our childhood. Whether it was our mom’s homemade lasagna or a memorable chocolate birthday cake, food has a way of transporting us back to the past.
Homaro Cantu
