Coming home, we stopped for a bite to eat and ran into a confused waitress.

I used to run away to New York from Baltimore all the time. I would get on the Greyhound bus and tell my parents I was going to some sorority weekend… I’d even make up fake permission slips, come to New York, and just ask people on the street if I could stay with them and go see midnight movies.

Now, the people that helped get Obama elected, who think Israel is a good idea, need to wake up and tell him they’re our friends, let’s preserve them. And then it would happen. Because that’s the only kind of thing he responds to. But he throws our friends under the bus and rewards our enemies.

I always said in my mind I wanted to be an All-Star and show four-year guys in the NBA can be good players as opposed to just one-and-done guys. If I left after my freshman year, I wouldn’t have gotten drafted, I probably couldn’t deal with D-League and travel on the bus.

I’d always thought pop stars had to be really sophisticated and grown-up. So I was enchanted by Bjork’s childlikeness. I’d never heard a voice like hers, with all its character and glottal pronunciations, or music recorded with background noises, like the sound of the city or a bus pulling up.

As a child, I lived through and survived the segregated South. I sat at the back of the bus at a time when America wasn’t yet as great as it could be.

My desire for my own sitcom began as a little girl – I spent hours lying on my belly on the shag carpeting getting lost in the world of the ’70s sitcom. All I wanted to do was run away to the Brady house, The Partridge Family bus; even the project on ‘Good Times’ seemed better than Clark, NJ.

In real life, the most important decision you ever make is, where does reality leave off and make-believe begin? If you make a mistake about that, you’re dead. You know, you’re out on the street corner. You think there’s no bus coming. You step out, you’re dead.
I used to dream of some kind of way that you could carry a phone with you – but I never thought I would see it in my lifetime.

The beauty standards had nothing to do with me in Mexico. It was such a bizarre, dire time for my hair. I was living in a small town where there was not any semblance of an African community.

I don’t go, ‘I’m in the papers all the time,’ because there are loads of people in the papers all the time. Sometimes I’m still like, ‘Ooh, look- there’s me!’ I’m never like, ‘Wow, look at me on the bus.’ You have to be a bit grounded about things like that.
When you see the fans supporting you even more passionately, arriving early to cheer you on the bus, it definitely gives you an extra boost.
Cooking, to me, it’s kind of therapeutic. It’s completely different from music as well. I’m not amazing at it, but I can cook myself a good meal. And I’m not just saying this, but anytime I’m on the bus or at home, I’m watching Food Network or cooking on TV just ’cause it’s interesting to me.
Personally I ride a bicycle, travel by train and bus and campaign tirelessly for a car taxation system that will hammer ignorant, selfish, petty, fat, spoilt, stupid car abusers into giving up their addiction and walking.

I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was a boy, though it seemed an unlikely outcome since I showed no real talent. But I persevered and eventually found my own row to hoe. Ignorance of other writers’ work keeps me from discouragement and I am less well-read than the average bus driver.
I think any girl would throw me under a bus to be within five feet of Robert Pattinson. I actually think he’s an attractive guy. And I watched most of ‘Twilight,’ and I think he was really intriguing.
I remember I could do – I did Bart Simpson once on the bus. I did, like, a really good Bart Simpson voice on the bus, obviously before I hit puberty. And everybody went, ‘Whoa, that sounds just like Bart Simpson.’
I think that more and more you’re going to see people of good will on their side of the aisle say you know what, we got to get off the bus here, this is not headed in the right direction.
Bus routes reach the most obscure corners of Paris. There’s also the Metro – and especially the great Line No. 1, which runs on tires under the Champs-Elysees and beyond.
I miss the times I hung out with my friends. Instead of taking the bus, we would just walk, talk and laugh a lot.
I’m not as much a fan of the venues as I am the comics who inhabit them. I don’t care if it’s a bomb shelter, a bus, or a theater, if I’m watching somebody who makes me laugh, I’m down.
I should be learning another language and working out more, but I’m just always saying, ‘Ah, I could get hit by a bus tomorrow.’

I have a ’72 Volkswagen bus and it’s lime green.
I mean I’ve seen so many kids on the street when we’re like in the bus, they’re screaming ‘go Nigeria, go Nigeria,’ so to represent them I’m just proud.
It’s not every day you see a bus with your own face on it.
The whole point of bike-sharing is to give New Yorkers another way to commute. A lot of folks in Bay Ridge work in downtown Brooklyn or other parts of the borough. For them, it would make more sense to hop on a Citi Bike than to wait for a train or a bus.
We did rent some houses in different hub cities which made it that we weren’t in hotels all the time. But we’re on the bus a lot. Isaiah, our 4-year-old, he loves it. He boots around on his scooter and he loves seeing all the people on tour that he gets to know.
In my neighborhood, people were truckers and teachers and store clerks and bus drivers and everything else under the sun. But what they all had in common was that everyone was dependable and worked really hard. We all got what we needed, but it didn’t always come easy.
I live in a bus and go from place to place and sometimes feel very detached from what’s going on.
Shaking hands with the Queen of England was a long way from being forced to sit in the colored section of the bus going into downtown Wilmington, North Carolina.

Although I have been pretty vocal about hating touring, the only part of touring I don’t like is being on the bus and bouncing around.
I started ‘Society’s Child’ on a bus in East Orange as I was going home from school. I saw a black and white couple sitting there and started thinking about it.

I guess getting used to sleeping on the tour bus has been the hardest thing – that and settling for whatever food you can get on the road.
I grew up in a bus, traveled with various circuses and freak shows. I was a trapeze artist, and that was my dream. We just traveled the whole world, me and my mom and my little brothers and sisters. It was an adventure.

I don’t have any reasons to be disrespectful or throw anybody under the bus.
Being sober on a bus is, like, totally different than being drunk on a bus.
Back in ’93 and ’94, when ‘Dookie’ was being made, my dad built this tour bus for us, out of a bookmobile. We toured in it for the first year. It was a really bad idea, by the way.
When Trump says no one loves women more than he does, what exactly is he referring to? Fantasizing about them on the ‘Access Hollywood’ bus? Placing them only in professional roles that answer to him?
People do more important jobs than acting in film that should be recognised, but for some reason it’s big money, so people are elevated in status. If I was a bus driver, I’m sure you wouldn’t be interviewing me.
I remember sitting on the back of the bus on the first day of the Social Experiment tour with my face in my hands. I emptied out my bank account, and before I did that tour, that was the number one thing I said I’d never do. I’ll never empty out my savings.
I think the first Broadway show that I saw was ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ and that was in 5th or 6th grade. Our school would take bus trips up to see shows, and so it was on one of their bus trips that I got to see ‘Beauty and the Beast.’
I was on the school bus telling Richard Pryor jokes. I was sneaking, listening to Richard Pryor albums and would go to school the next day, tell all the jokes, and get in trouble because I was cursing.
Because I’m on a tour bus, it’s so hard to wash your face – we have to use, um, water bottles. But you know what? It’s not about looking cute – it’s about staying hydrated.
Anything that could be conceived of that would separate black people from white people was devised and codified by someone in some state in the South. There were colored and White waiting rooms everywhere, from doctor’s offices to the bus stations, as people may already know.
In the Fifties, there were certain places we couldn’t ride on the bus, and now there is a possibility of a black man being in the White House. You have to feel good about it.
To be truthful, when I’d be on the bus when I was a little kid, like fourth, fifth grade, we’d always be free-styling and playing around.
‘Just Do It’ is exactly what you need to hear when you’re in a moment of doubt. When you’re struggling, especially with sport… just do it. Stop talking about it, stop complaining about the cellulite, or that you’re not able to run fast enough for the bus… just do it.
While journalists cannot right every wrong, champion every cause or fix every problem, they can – through the written word – lift someone’s burden for a day, make some elderly woman on a bus smile or let them know they are noticed by someone.
The practice days, the walkthroughs, the bus rides – all those things you can’t come back to. When you are getting into Year 15, you think about it. This thing is going to come to an end at some point.
The sad reality is that there are no purely domestic issues in Israel. Issues that would be dealt with by municipalities in other countries – such as how to deal with a dangerous bridge or how to resolve conflicts between religious and secular bus riders – become major international issues when they occur in Israel.
To win competitions you need a bit of luck and some talent. I think we have some talent on our bus.

We were playing a fair, and a few people were handing me stuffed animals and flowers, but one person handed me a paper sack. So I took all the stuff back to the bus. I put the sack in my lap and opened it, and a live iguana jumped out of the sack and onto my shirt. I screamed like a little girl!
I would suggest one to book a cab or take a bus from Birmingham and visit the coastline in Cornwall. Located in the southern part of the country, Cornwall has a coastline of over 400 miles.
Being in Ann Arbor, if I wanted to go from my apartment to the gym, I could get on the bus and it would be a two-minute ride, or a 20-minute walk.
When you’re on tour and you’re more or less attached to the hip with people, you’re sharing a bus, you’re next to one another at all times, for me it’s important to find my own space even it’s for an hour of the day just to reset.
I drove around New York when we did the upfronts and when we premiered ‘Fargo,’ and they crocheted a sweater for a double-decker bus and drove it around.
I firmly believe that we can protect taxpayer dollars, bus drivers’ jobs, and the safety of our students. We just need a mayor who actually cares about all three.
You know, I didn’t have enough money to quit my day job… the myth of the major label deal. Nowadays, you have a tour bus and a stylist and all this stuff. But back then, no way.
I wanted the young African-American girls also on the bus to know that they had a right to be there, because they had paid their fare just like the white passengers.
I sometimes think it ironic for an ex-seaman, longshoreman, truck driver, policeman, bus driver, etc… to find success writing children’s novels.
Young people think Rosa Parks just sat down on a bus and ended segregation, but that wasn’t the case at all.
Those days were very tough. All my teammates are white, and it was a different time. I couldn’t go out to eat with the white players; I had to wait until someone brought something out to the bus. We couldn’t stay in the same hotels.
Building a consistent experience and firm identity was instrumental in our ability to swiftly build our online presence, open four stores as well as a mobile store in a converted yellow school bus, and launch six shops-in-shops.
The walk between our house and the bus stop is marked by decay and wreckage. A row of shops, flats, community centres and an old cinema is boarded up, burned out, cracking and rotting.
The year the bus drivers went on strike in Pittsburgh, I was twenty-three and living on the edge of the city in a neighborhood that was on the verge of becoming a ghetto. I had just been fired from a good job as a cartographer in a design studio where I had worked for about four months.
Mum used to have my sister to look after, so I had to make my own way to training. I would get a bus to town and another one to Netherton. It would take about an hour.

I’m so hands-on, from the color of my tour bus to what I eat for dinner at 5 or the way the lights are hung.
On-demand ridesharing can make cities less congested and polluted and free up resources. Shared rides can become so affordable that they cost the same as a bus ride today.
After 50, the rock ‘n’ roll road is a little absurd. It’s very difficult to play these little places. You’re out there on a rickety old bus with no place to shower.

I try to make sure to get off the bus as much as I can, try to do something during the day that’s local to where I am, whether it’s hiking or fishing.

I care about affordable housing. I care about bus routes. I care about small business. I care about schools. These are not Muslim issues. Even protection of civil rights – that’s not just a Muslim issue. That is for everyone.
Girls and guys are like a bus stop – they come and go. You never know, like, who’s going to be the right one, and what I’ve been taught is you really gotta figure out who you are first before you can really give yourself to someone else.
When me and my brother Eagle-Eye were kids, life was about hitting the road, getting on the bus. We loved it.
I think I’m a fun flatmate. I’m always cheerful. I go on tour with my band so it’s 12 people on one bus and I feel like I’m the one who’s happy in the morning. I’m not a chaotic person, but I might slack off on doing the dishes from time to time.
Everyone told me to pass on ‘Speed’ because it was a ‘bus movie.’
Once I took a bus from my home in Maryland to Philadelphia to live on the streets with some musicians for a few weeks, and then my parents sent me to boarding school at Andover to shape me up.

The first time I ever went to Texas was on a bus with curtains draped over the windows. I just joined the military and got shipped off to basic training in San Antonio.

It’s hard to bury your head in Los Angeles. People come up to you and say, ‘Hey, I saw your picture on a bus.’ It’s tricky: You’re excited by the possibilities, but you don’t want to get too crazy.
My mother and my father have always supported me. Now in their eighties, they actually clamor onto the tour bus with me once or twice a year so they can watch the performances and hear the crowds. Traveling with eighty-something-year-olds on a tour bus… there has to be some sort of reality show in that.
If I got hit by a bus tomorrow, you’d get people going: ‘Oh, we should make ‘Mother’ into an opera, it’s what he would have wanted.’

If I’m on a bus and someone makes my blood boil, I’ll pocket those emotions and put them in a song.
When I was growing up as a young lesbian in the ’50s, I looked in vain for books about my people. I did find some paperbacks with lurid covers in the local bus station, but they ended with the gay character’s committing suicide, dying in a car crash, being sent to a mental hospital, or ‘turning’ heterosexual.
Getting on the bus and touring was my life. And when that was not around, I felt myself a bit lost at times, because that was all I had.
When I was a little girl, there was this unbelievably cool female bus driver who’d work near us. I remember thinking I’d like to be her when I grew up.
It was a nightmare. The band had to tour Greenland by bus.
You know what Oprah taught me? Unless you count as changing your life having a neighborhood dad say to you every morning at the school bus stop, ‘You sure don’t look as good as you did on ‘Oprah!’, being on ‘Oprah’ doesn’t change your life.
It’s hard either way, at home or on the bus, I think the hardest thing probably for me is going one second from being mom to right out on the stage and having to be that person too. It’s hard to switch gears.
Every day I have a tour bus that comes around my house and stops. You can hear them on their microphone. If you don’t embrace it, it’s going to destroy you.
I cannot live a life where I’m deprived. I’d much rather be five, 10 pounds heavier. With my luck, I’ll get myself to that perfect goal weight, and I’ll get hit by a bus. Then I’ll be like… looking at myself from some afterlife going, ‘You idiot. You could have had that agnolotti, dummy.’
I believe I am blessed with the ability to fall asleep just about anytime, anywhere. I can sleep on a flight, on a couch, and even on a bus.

I don’t colour my hair, and I look like the back end of a bus, so I get asked to play old people.
I basically grew up on the road with my dad, on a tour bus every summer since I was a kid.
The authorized biographers – the ones hand-picked to write the sanitized version of a subject’s life – sit up front with the swells while the unauthorized biographer who writes without access or approval gets elbowed to the back of the bus.
We were orbiting around the idea of intent and context. We would take the bus into work, and if you said, ‘Here’s a shirt you might like,’ and I open it on my mobile phone, I’m not going to pull out my credit card and wallet. We thought, ‘How does someone do this? An e-mail to yourself, or you try to remember?’
Dee Dee Ramone was the one who would go to Rockaway Beach, and he wrote that great song about it. He was the beach boy; he loved getting a tan and stuff, and he would ride the bus down Woodhaven Boulevard to Rockaway.
In the public sector, there are a million people in the health service. There ought to be a couple of dozen or more on the Labour side, who learned their trade in different parts of the health service, and the public sector, and local government. And bus drivers, and people on the Underground.
I’m not a big TV guy, but I love either ‘Auction Hunters’ or those repo shows on truTV. It’s really just glorified ‘Jerry Springer’ is all it is. Every now and then, it’s just mindless entertainment. We’ll be on the bus, and we’ll laugh at it. Those are my guilty pleasures.
Al Gore, the former vice-president of the United States, lives in a mansion that uses more electricity than the average family’s bungalow! David Suzuki rides on a bus that uses more fuel than a Smart car to get across Canada! Oh my God! And this is just the tip of the vanishing iceberg!
You see kids walking to the bus, and they’re watching product on their phones. I’m positive that my grandkids and their grandkids are going to put on a pair of glasses and watch something.
Now I’m the father of three children; I’m not able to go live on a bus and do semesters around the country like I did when I was young.
Even in downtown office areas, people would probably beg for a shuttle bus service to ferry them swiftly to the railway stations and bus stations, instead of forcing them to travel squashed up in shared-taxis.
It’s never my goal to throw any of my peers under the bus.
On a bus, your eyes, ears, and pores are open absorbing in the variety, the wonder, and the magic of the city. It’s a wonderful way to get to know the city.
My first interview at ‘SI,’ I sat in silence next to Guy LaFleur for five minutes on the New York Rangers team bus until he finally broke the ice. Those early interviews, every one of them was like a terrible first date.

Vehicles are just something I have always felt connected to whether it is the bus or the plane.
If a lawyer, if a teacher, if a bus driver, if they’re on $40,000 and they get offered a lot more to go somewhere else, what do you think they’re going to do?
At Sunderland, our kit was five times too big, and we got the local bus to games; in America, I got bags of Nike kit, flew to away games, and played in front of thousands of fans. It opened my eyes to what women’s football could – and should – be.
I learned really late. I started leasing a tour bus, which I wish I had done a lot sooner.
I like to walk when I can. Otherwise, it’s the bus – while we still have them.

I listen to music on the bus or in the car on the way to a game.
Unfortunately, poetry is not born in noise, in crowds, or on a bus. There have to be four walls and the certainty that the telephone will not ring. That’s what writing is all about.
Teams need the opportunity to learn about each other’s capabilities and develop productive routines. So once we get the right people on the bus, let’s make sure they spend some time driving together.
I understand what it was to be out there on the road without a tour bus and without fans.
For us as entertainers traveling, the schedule gets really crazy – flying all the time, being on a bus tour, changing hotels every day. And it’s challenging.

Being liked by the boys and girls on the bus doesn’t necessarily earn you the respect of the people back home. Standing up to them, giving as good as you get, all that helps.
I can’t do something that I would not throw myself under a bus for.
I always say that, for me, writing a book is like a wacky Greyhound bus trip – I know where I’m starting and where I’ll end up, but I have no idea what will happen along the way.
Being an actress wasn’t a plan at all, so what’s happened to me is very strange. Life isn’t very normal, even though I’m still very much a normal girl. I ride the subway, I ride the bus, and all of that.
The summer before I started college, my parents walked everywhere instead of taking the bus. Once a week, they would hand over $10 to the university housing office, a deposit so I could move into the dorms in the fall.
People are released from prison so unprepared. They give you $200. We call it gate money. And you have to pay for a bus ticket back to L.A. You get off the Greyhound bus, downtown Skid Row, and you’re supposed to make a life from that.
Ninety years after slavery, blacks were still segregated from whites. They still had separate drinking fountains, separate restrooms, separate neighborhoods, and separate schools. They still were expected to sit at the back of the bus.
Once you start cycling, the city opens up for you. No longer are you fighting it, hot and frustrated; no longer are you at the mercy of bus drivers, roadworks, decisions made by others and over which you have no control. Believe me, once you’ve tasted this freedom, you’re hooked.
I’ve been so lucky with the people I’ve worked with, but I’m such a fan girl. When I moved to London at 16, I saw a man from a Dulux advert on the bus, and I asked for his autograph. I was so excited; you can imagine what I’m like now – I really need to control myself.
Old money in Southeast Asia is much more discrete and low key. It’s about not wearing brand names. It’s about being invisible, almost. The billionaire can be taking the bus with you.
My feet are giving out on me. But I have a wheelchair that folds out on my tour bus. I’ve also got this little tricycle, so if I want to go someplace, I get those out.
At 18, I took a Greyhound bus to New York City, and then I was in city after city, so I was just dying to get to the country. Everywhere I’d go, I’d just shoot out to a national park somewhere and reconnect.
I traveled to many countries when I played. But wherever I went, it was a journey between an airport, a hotel, a stadium and a railway station or a bus terminal and I didn’t have a chance to experience these places properly.
I have a bus that’s 40 feet long. When I was in training camp, I was scared to fly, so I used the bus.
We got rid of parallel ports, the serial bus, floppy drives, physical keyboards on phones – do you miss the physical keyboards on your phone?

The hardest part was when I was in high school not having a job and always being broke. I had to get to auditions without a car. I either took the bus or walked.
I’m the type of person, you know, I don’t throw nobody under the bus for nothing.
The problem with writing a monthly book is that you’re going through your work like a man running for a bus, red-faced and out of breath. There isn’t time for reflection or critical self-examination.
When I was really little, I wanted to be a taxi driver or a bus driver; I loved the fact that I could play my own music when I wanted. But I can’t imagine actually doing that now; I think I’d get bored.
There were times we were kept in our dressing room until late at night because it wasn’t safe to go home. Our bus would get attacked, the tires slit.
Well, they had a lot of the things they found in his possession. They had the map, you know, that marked the route of the parade. They had statements from the bus driver and the taxicab driver that hauled him somewhere.
Sometimes it feels like I’ve been in the business forever, but then other times, it feels like kind of a flash. Growing up, all I wanted to do was sing. All I wanted to do was get on a bus and ride around the country and sing for people and be a household name.
Normally I’m really lucky because I can go down to my local shops and no one cares. I take the Tube and the bus so it’s kind of the perfect balance.

If you look there is humor in every situation like your Aunt eating up all the food at the funeral or the lady sitting next to you at the bus stop.

I came to theatre as a teenager by going to the National Theatre when it was at the Old Vic and sitting on padded seats in the gallery for 15 pence, which was the price of a bus fare.
A paparazzo once jumped out of a car and started running backward with me. I slowed down out of courtesy because she started drifting into the street. I reached out my hand and moved her back so she didn’t get hit by a bus.
I actually think storyboards are great. I don’t draw well enough to do them myself. I’ve only used storyboards a couple of times. We used two storyboards in ‘Margaret’: one for the bus accident and for the opera sequence at the end.
I was the guy on the swim team entertaining the bus on the way to the meets.
Moms don’t just sit there cooking everyday and aren’t always there to greet their kids at the school bus.
My mum was no pushy parent. She would drop me off for auditions when I was in my teens at the Lyric Theatre, then give me my bus fare and say she would see me later at home. She wasn’t hanging around in the wings geeing me on. I had to do it on my own; it was up to me.
As soon as I walk outside, I get depressed. If I see a dog, I’ll get upset about how much it must suck to be on a leash. I’ll get on a bus and tear up at the thought of how the driver has to go back and forth on the same street for eight hours in mind-numbing traffic.
I remember, after the New Year’s Eve 1991 show, somebody running onto the bus and saying Nirvana had just hit No. 1. I remember thinking, ‘Wow; it’s on now.’ It changed something. We had something to prove – that our band was as good as I thought it was.
I always loved hip-hop, being a black little kid. I always used to freestyle on the bus when I was young. It was always a part of my life.
