Jason Bateman
Movies require a lot of patience. I like instant results. If I have done something that’s not funny at all, the audience will let me know in two seconds. With the movie, I will have to wait nine months to know if I was that bad.
Vir Das
Reading is a heady thing. You can be into the action of someone’s thoughts and take a whole trip down someone’s ruminations while seconds tick by in the world that they’re in, but you can’t really do that in film.
Alan Tudyk
I don’t feel the obligation to have a big explosion in the first 20 seconds so the audience doesn’t turn on another channel. We are trying to make something that looks like a feature film that was bought for television and I think we are succeeding.
Tom Selleck
As far as I’m concerned, attraction, in its most rudimentary form, comes from the way a person naturally smells. I’d say that within the first five seconds of ‘inhaling’ someone, I know if there’s an attraction or not. This may sound animalistic – and it is.
Rachel Nichols
I think you develop strong instincts when you’re a comedian. You have to pay your bills by making people laugh every six seconds… or not. I had to do that for 22 years.

Misty May-Treanor

Paulo Coelho
When I arrived in Manchester for the first time, it took me five seconds to realize that it was a very different place than where I come from. It is cold, yes, but people also do things very differently than we do in Nigeria. The culture was different, and everything looked different.
Kelechi Iheanacho

I tried bull-riding… I wasn’t good at all: I don’t think I ever got eight seconds anywhere. But then, after that, I discovered acting through community theater.
Wes Studi
I would say Tracy Chapman was the first time I obsessed over an entire record. I knew every song; I knew the exact amount of seconds between each song. That’s the level of obsession that I had.
I remember my first ever gig in town, I was very nervous. I had a big red shiny face. But that all disappeared after 30 seconds and I settled down and got a great lift from that.
Ardal O’Hanlon
Film scores are often based on short themes, and it helps if you’ve got some way of developing these themes and making them sometimes last 4 minutes and sometimes last 40 seconds. One ends up doing it subconsciously.

Anita Baker
I’m the type of person where, at the end of the game, if there’s 10 seconds left, and you need to get somebody the ball, and you’re behind by one, give me the ball. Get me the ball every single time.
Bobby Lashley
It’s not that I can’t find art beautiful. I just don’t know what to do, standing there in the gallery. I don’t know what to think about. Once I’ve seen it, I’ve seen it; that takes about two seconds. I am interested and then immediately bored, immediately.
Victoria Coren Mitchell
I hope each day to have done 10 seconds of good work that they can use in the film. And I’m always afraid I didn’t get those 10 seconds.
Louis Garrel
When you do ‘Strictly,’ you’re kind of restricted. You have to dance for 90 seconds, you have to choreograph for your partner.
A. J. Pritchard
Most of my videos are 60 seconds long. They can only fit about 200 words. There are a lot of things that I wanted to discuss about a given topic – my feelings behind it, how I ended up making a video, what happened before and after – that I couldn’t because I had this 60-second limit.
Nuseir Yassin

If I’m looking at a client, I can say, ‘Oh, wow, this is where you’re weak; this is what you need to work on.’ I can correct her in a matter of seconds, and then she’s practicing specifically on the thing she needs to work on instead of repeating the same mistakes. Having that feedback is essential for beginners.
Jillian Michaels
Plainly, when perfusate from an organ or blood from an animal is used for superfusion, substances can reach the assay tissues within a few seconds of generation or release.
John Vane
It is not a computer generated image, like you see on T

It is not a computer generated image, like you see on TV or some movie in Hollywood – this is the real thing a guy built, a rocket he’s sitting in it and he can be dead in 10 seconds.
Mike Hughes
In a fighter, you can’t hold 4 G’s for several minutes, not most aircraft. I’ve been able to feel that for a few seconds. But to have that for an extended period was just truly amazing.
Victor J. Glover
There are no more heroes in America. Because of the Internet, heroism has become momentary and within seconds someone who we should be thinking about will be replaced in people’s minds with news that Beyonce lip-synched at the inauguration.
Tommy Mottola

Every time you jump to another format in the ‘picture business,’ meaning film, television, commercials, the people in the other format go, ‘Ah, yeah, you made a lot of features, but you don’t know how to do TV’ or the commercial people go, ‘Oh, you can’t do 30 seconds.’
Jay Chandrasekhar
Let’s say music is needed for only 43 seconds of film. You have to score it so it is an entity, so it won’t bother anyone when it ends so quickly. Or if a song runs 2 minutes and 45 seconds, but the titles run a minute longer, you have to arrange that song so it doesn’t get repetitious.
Marvin Hamlisch

Phillip Phillips
I’m not limited by my gender, and I don’t think anyone else should be either. Because I am the age I am and I sort of rode the crest of the first profound post-suffragette feminists, I wasn’t fighting to burn my bra. Those women fought that fight just seconds before I came into womanhood.
Ellen Barkin
The first thing I saw was that Brett Rogers had his way very quickly – in 20 seconds – with a UFC champion, Andrei Arlovski.

Henry Selick

When you play piano, your left hand and right hand are synced. Your brain basically has a clock, so that the right hand knows that 0.3 seconds after I hit this key, I need to hit that one. And the right hand knows not to hit keys that the left hand is playing, so the hands do not collide.
