You can relax more when you’re playing a silly character than when you’re playing a really rigid character.

Anna Kendrick
I love doing comedy, and I don’t get a chance to much. I get to play lots of serious people, and killers, and people with a lot of… sheriffs. Good people and bad people, but lots of drama, and to get a chance to be genuinely silly is a great treat for me.

Anyone can write a story based on the kind of horror where you see a guy in car and then there’s the bad guy in the back seat. It’s infantile to rely on that for telling a story. That’s like going to bed and thinking there’s a monster under your bed. It’s silly.

Julian Barratt
Why does everyone think they need to be a star? It’s ridiculous. The celebrity culture is so silly, and the fact that people grow up thinking that it’s something to aspire to just seems wrong. I don’t mean to bash my life. I love my life; I just think it’s not the only way to go.
Jennifer Garner
I’ve always wanted to do a real comedy. I haven’t done enough, and it seems silly not to do more, considering the fact that people tend to laugh at me.

Whence it is somewhat strange that any men from so mean and silly a practice should expect commendation, or that any should afford regard thereto; the which it is so far from meriting, that indeed contempt and abhorrence are due to it.
Isaac Barrow
I’m interested in non-fiction, but a form of it which is very badly behaved, which doesn’t define itself as straight-ahead journalism or memoir. It blurs boundaries, plays fast and loose with the truth – not to be silly, whimsical or lazy, but to get greater purchase on what it feels like to be alive.
David Shields
Everyone thinks these are self-portraits but they aren’t meant to be. I just use myself as a model because I know I can push myself to extremes, make each shot as ugly or goofy or silly as possible.

I don’t want to make silly videos.

Twitter is just full of silly little people enjoying being sarcastic and rude and mocking.

Adam Granduciel
I hate the term ‘the future of drag.’ It’s so silly.
Bob the Drag Queen
If you think about 2Pac, Biggie, and Nas, all of those guys were teenagers or in their early 20s when they got started. Everybody acts like young people have to be silly and lack perspective. Those guys had incredible perspective, and everything that they said was before 25 years old.
No I.D.
There’s a difference between delivering real funny and just silly funny.
Lil Rel Howery
I am from Des Moines, Iowa - not even the city but out

I am from Des Moines, Iowa – not even the city but out in the country. I don’t have a lot of trappings, I think, in my personality. I’m just a simple person with a silly bone.
Cloris Leachman
There are a lot of people across the country, for as silly as this sounds, who obsess about hair loss.
Joe Buck

Rozonda Thomas
We are so aware of how silly our movies are as we’re making them.
Phil Lord
I was young and irresponsible, a silly woman laden with sin, not caring for anything except fame and fortune and self. But I have lived seeking truth in Jesus Christ and found it has made me free.
Generally, successful fads have some kind of play value, like the Frisbee, Slinky, Silly Putty, my Wallwalker. They’re generally inexpensive items, impulse items. They tend to be rather useless items, too. They provide a few minutes of amusement.
Ken Hakuta
Everybody’s got a silly side in them.
Rozonda Thomas

I’m childish and silly. Most people tease me because I’m a bit daft.
Harriet Walter
I’ve never been to Hollywood. I can count the number of times I’ve been to Los Angeles on my hands. I’ve never made a movie there and I’ve never been there for working reasons. The only reason to go there is for silly awards shows.
Stephen Daldry
I know it sounds silly, but in auditions for film or TV, the words aren’t as important – you need to get into the character and have the gist of the scene. But in theater, if you don’t do it word for word, then you throw off your scene partner.
Morgan Saylor
I’m a silly guy.
Flying Lotus
With fashion, my mother was an icon, but she never lived it in the sense that she was never obsessed with fashion. When I was a young girl, my sister wasn’t doing fashion, so I started fashion thinking, ‘I’m going to do something that they haven’t done yet.’ That was my silly scheme at the time.
Lou Doillon
Melanie Fiona is a singer, a songwriter, she’s a super-girl. I can be silly, goofy, really chilled. She’s like your cool chill girlfriend, sister-friend. I’m just like everybody else.
Melanie Fiona

I go where I think I can enjoy myself. Sometimes it’s on a big movie, and sometimes it’s even on a silly movie.
Stellan Skarsgard
The love affair between black folks and the Clintons has been going on for a long time. It began back in 1992, when Bill Clinton was running for president. He threw on some shades and played the saxophone on ‘The Arsenio Hall Show.’ It seems silly in retrospect, but many of us fell for that.
Michelle Alexander
You cannot make money with a hockey team. You cannot make money with a hotel, either, and you cannot make money with a golf club. I have all three of them. When you have a certain amount of money, you do silly things – because it’s pretty to have a golf course and it’s interesting to have a hockey team.
Hasso Plattner
We had a bunch of models for user adoption of Robinhood Gold. The data team had some silly names for a range of adoption levels: ‘Mediocre expectations,’ ‘middle-of-the-road expectations’ and ‘great expectations.’ The numbers we ended up with were significantly higher than ‘great expectations.’
Baiju Bhatt
I was always putting on plays for my family. Usually silly ones. I used my imagination a lot, and it was something that came naturally to me.

Tom Burke
Shaq is just a goofy dancer. He’s just silly.

It's silly to me to not be positive about rock advancin

John Gourley
As a kid in New Zealand, you play cricket in summer and rugby in winter. I played cricket and hockey. Not rugby. I wasn’t brawny enough for it. Or silly enough, perhaps.
Glenn Turner
Hanging out with my girlfriends is my sanity saver. We go out for a bad chick flick and dinner. I suggest you break free from the guys, see a really silly, girly movie, and get a little something to eat afterwards. It feels like a treat.
Tamara Taylor
We find it hard to believe that other people’s thoughts are as silly as our own, but they probably are.
James Harvey Robinson
I really thank my parents for giving me the good sense to not get into anything wrong. There are many people around who like controversies, and I actually wonder how do they do it. I don’t have the courage to get into controversies. There are people who love it; I find it silly.
Saina Nehwal
I think it’s like everything else; one shouldn’t dig too deeply. It’s silly to say that with a journalist, but sometimes there is not a truth to be found.
Alan Price

A lot of people who start work at a very young age never grow up because they never got that opportunity to be a child, so they hold on to that and still do a lot of childish, silly things.

Hannah Murray
I was doing this children’s theater play, and it was non-Equity. We were out of town to do it at the Kennedy Center, and it was always kind of, ‘Well, the producers may have to turn this into Equity,’ and that’s what happened. It was kind of a silly children’s theater play, but that’s how I got my card.
Bill Pullman
I like that ‘Scrubs’ is very funny and silly and broad, but also emotional and real – sometimes within the same scene.
Brett Goldstein
‘Seanan McGuire’ is my real name; if I’m being silly and third-person about it, she’s a frequently cranky, foul-mouthed Disney Princess on vacation in the real world, where she studies diseases, cuddles reptiles, watches lots of horror movies, and goes to as many corn fields as possible.
Seanan McGuire
One of the things that is very silly – and I hear from educators all the time – is that schools essentially teach kids to learn. They don’t need school for that. Learning is what they do best.

I love to make fun of fashion because it is just so silly.

Jonathan Brandis

It would be silly for me to work almost two and a half years chomping out whoever they put in front of me and for me to not capture that belt.
Tyron Woodley
Poor, dear, silly Spring, preparing her annual surprise!
Wallace Stevens

Elizabeth Gaskell
I know, when I was in film school, some of my films were silly, but a lot of them were more dramatic. I don’t think I intentionally set out to do comedy stuff. I guess that’s a consequence of coming up working with David O. Russell and skewing toward those sensibilities.
Jeff Baena
I’m very outspoken. I will ask a silly question, but I really am deadly serious. I’m like, ‘I want to know the answer.’
Millie Bobby Brown
Carlos Sosa, the saxophone player for Zac Brown Band, and I worked up two songs for ‘When You’re Feeling Sick.’ They were a blast to work on. The songs are real upbeat and silly.
Coy Bowles

Robert Ben Garant
I’m an eccentric, silly, observational guy, but I’m not gonna frighten off social conservatives.
Jim Gaffigan
It’s not like I’m advocating that we ban ‘Call of Duty’ or anything silly like that, I’m asking is for companies to look at their hiring practices, to hire more women… and make sure they portray women in their games in a socially responsible way.
Brianna Wu
I love sleeping in my son’s silly racecar bed. I love watching hours of ‘Yo Gabba Gabba.’ I love long playdates with his best friend Jack and traveling with Zev. Most of all I love coming home from work and seeing Zev run up to me saying, ‘My mommy’s home! My mommy’s home!’
Marissa Jaret Winokur
We would be silly to say that race issues don't exist i

We would be silly to say that race issues don’t exist in 2014.
Candice Patton
The one consistent character in all of this is Chelsea Green, and that’s how people know me, even as all else changes. I can go out and be the hot mess, or go hard in matches or be silly, and that’s still all me.
Laurel Van Ness
Oh, I’ve never been asked a silly question in my entire life.
Hillary Clinton
People like to pigeonhole and say, Well, I’m a Washington insider, and you know, that’s quite silly. What does that even mean?

Rachel Platten
Nationalism is a silly cock crowing on his own dunghill.
Richard Aldington
Probably only an art-worlder like me could assign deeper meaning to something as simple and silly as Tebowing. But, to us, anytime people repeat a stance or a little dance, alone or together, we see that it can mean something. Imagistic and unspoken language is our thing.
Jerry Saltz
The point with me is that it’s always been, even with the stand-up, that the music has to be right. You have to take it seriously. You have to try and play it as faithfully as possible. That way it helps the comedy. Rather than just playing it in a silly way.
Bill Bailey
My father said, If you want to do acting, you have to be successful, which is a silly thing to say.
Diane Cilento
There is always something I gain from watching a movie, whether it’s a silly romantic comedy or an art film.
Gia Coppola
Being funny with a funny voice is more my comfort zone, a broader character that I try to humanize, a kind of silly or wacky persona that I try to fill in.
Hank Azaria
‘The Muthaship’ was an experiment. All my friends are working at Endemol, so they just kind of pushed me into it to see if we could shoot a little web series on an iPhone – and that’s what we did: we shot it on an iPhone. So it’s so experiential and so silly.
Drea De Matteo
If I ever feel like, ‘Oh, my life!’ or get upset by silly things like a photographer, or if someone has written something nasty that’s upset me, I just think, ‘Worse things happen at sea.’
Cressida Bonas
I’m really silly. That’s the thing that people don’t get.
Taraji P. Henson
I thought maybe I’d be a farmer. That was another silly notion. I think I’d last about five minutes, being a farmer.
Matthew Rhys
I try to acknowledge both the sacred and the silly in my work. That goes for the live show as well. If I find myself in my head or dwelling in seriousness, I think of my friends back home and how they’d be laughing at me.
Jason Mraz
I grew up in the Bronx where you would stay up late with your girlfriends, just being silly in our bedrooms, whatever. And I was always the clown.

Jenna Johnson
One doesn’t want fashion to look ridiculous, silly, or out of step with the times – but you do want designers that make you think, that make you look at fashion differently. That’s how fashion changes. If it doesn’t change, it’s not looking forward. And that’s important to me.
Anna Wintour
All socio-political phenomena in the U.K. come laden with the baggage of a class-based theory or two attached to them. In the case of gay Tories, there is one particularly silly variant of the category, which asserts that gayness is bred in public schools and thus fits with Conservatism like hand in glove.
Evan Davis
The most fun about working with special effects is that you have to really rely on your imagination to build the scene. You can’t actually see how what you’re doing will fit in ultimately and you look silly while doing it but when you see the finished product it becomes something amazing!
Ser’Darius Blain
For years after ‘The Last Waltz,’ I got all kinds of silly movie offers – or, maybe, not silly, but parts that are not my calling… lots of offers to play some wonderful boyfriend.
Robbie Robertson
I do like writing. When I was a little kid, I used to love writing funny, silly stories – and my mom would always encourage it. I don’t know why I ever stopped!
Laurie Hernandez
In my father’s generation, the product was 80 percent of what you were putting into the world, and your personal life was 20 percent. It now seems that 80 percent of the product I put out is silly, made-up stories and what I’m wearing.
Angelina Jolie
When you start feeling silly, you start doing silly things.
You don’t remember people you love by the wise things they say but the silly things they do.
Howard Jacobson
While I prefer generally more personal dramas in which I can stretch myself… and while I’m not a science fiction buff, I consider ‘2001’ a great film, absolutely enthralling; at ‘Star Wars’ I had a fabulous time, and, at ‘Alien,’ while it was a silly story, I was knocked out.
Yvette Mimieux
A man that is ashamed of passions that are natural and reasonable is generally proud of those that are shameful and silly.
Mary Wortley Montagu
This is your silly web browser doing that. The file is correctly named.
Rasmus Lerdorf
What really ticks me off is how the public figures you automatically become the roles you play. What most people never see is the silly side of me.
Catherine Oxenberg
I’m a real street-ball player. I like to do silly tricks and show off.
Josh Blue
So many things happen for every event, and if you try t

So many things happen for every event, and if you try to manipulate it, it means you are struggling against the whole universe, and that’s just silly.
Deepak Chopra
At university, I used to write silly little sketches and monologues, but never fiction.
David Nicholls
My father was always a straight-up funny guy. He was silly. He was my inspiration.
Mike Myers
Lots of people do that silly tweeting.
Harry Redknapp
I grew up in an apolitical household. I never left the country. When I became an adult, I started traveling and became interested in politics, and I probably talked about things in a silly, ignorant way.
Jesse Eisenberg
Let’s be honest. The powers that be all of a sudden realize that there’s a lot of money to be made from the Latino market. It all comes down to economics. That’s what’s happening. So what! We’re in style. I mean, that’s silly, but I’m taking full advantage of that.
Paula Garces
I would look a little silly playing Casanova now.
Donald Sutherland
Career wise, I think the dream for many of us is some kind of late night type of show. Something where you’re allowed to be funny and you get to write, you have guests and you get to do silly skits. That is my ultimate, bucket list career moment.
Michelle Beadle
In comedy, you have to be unafraid to hang from the tree branch naked in the high wind and you have to be absolutely unafraid to look ridiculous and silly.
Matt LeBlanc
I don’t get embarrassed easily, and I do silly things all the time!
Emily Osment
A friend of mine once wrote a silly article about all these metrosexuals like David Beckham wearing sarongs, and she described me as a ‘heteropolitan.’ I don’t know what that means. I think it was a joke.
Kevin McCloud
I am always fully in tune with the interviewer, who is usually trying to make me look silly. My objective is quite the opposite during an interview: I never use my wit or my intellect to make the interviewer look silly.
Chris Eubank Sr.
We didn’t even think about it, you know? I used to collect laser discs, and you’d have some college professor analyzing It’s a Wonderful Life or Citizen Kane, and now it is pretty funny – the idea of commentary for a silly kid’s movie, you know?
Dana Carvey
I was able to grow up and do silly things and have a life with only a small amount of public scrutiny.
Keisha Castle-Hughes
Mother goddesses are just as silly a notion as father gods. If a revival of the myths of these cults gives woman emotional satisfaction, it does so at the price of obscuring the real conditions of life. This is why they were invented in the first place.
Angela Carter
Modelling is a silly, crazy business.
Helena Christensen
Jessie Wallace was the first time I erupted. She was late, she was young. She’s not like that any more. I lost my temper. It was silly and I burst into tears and ran up to the producer. I said I had been terrible and amateur.
Barbara Windsor
I only worked theater jobs, but they were all really silly when I first graduated. I was a line monitor at ‘Spamalot,’ which means I got there at 8 A.M. and told people how much the tickets were for standing room. I was an NYU Medical School fake patient, to teach doctors how to talk to patients.
Lauren Worsham
I think there’s nothing better than laughing in life, so that’s nice, to be thought of as someone who can make someone laugh. It’s ’cause I think life is hard. You know, my dad was a really silly man. A great Irish silly man. And that’s fine.
Joan Cusack
The best things in life are silly.
Scott Adams
Comedy chose me. I always had this urge to be silly that I couldn’t control. I remember my father having me read ‘The Three Little Pigs’ to him, and I would improv all around the story, like when one pig’s house got blown over, he put on his gym shoes and took off.
Craig Robinson
I am Nia – I have certain traits of my own, and I won’t mind telling people that I am a short tempered, immature, silly, normal girl who does mistakes very unlike the sanskari bahu on screen.
Nia Sharma
I’m a very, very silly girl.
Astrid Kirchherr
I think that any female who gets asked if she’s a feminist… it’s silly… it’s so interesting when people ask females if they’re a feminist. Of course every female wants to be equal!
Melanie Martinez
If you were to come out and hang out with me, just having fun at a nightclub or a party, that’s kind of the version of Harland you’d get – silly, kind of always saying wacky things.
Harland Williams
I think that ‘Full House’ is just a feel-good show. It’s not meant to be anything more than just a little silly, funny, heartfelt, and warm program.
Lori Loughlin
I’d like to say I’m a very silly man. But I’m not that silly. I’m not throwing any diamond ring down a toilet.
Michael Clarke
What I have never been afraid of is to be a little silly, and you can engage people that way. My view is, first you get them to laugh, then you get them to listen.
Michelle Obama
I want to be silly, and that’s being authentic just as much as being open and honest. It’s authentic to make weird clown horn noises when it strikes you.
Tig Notaro
I see bad stuff on the street all the time that I don’t do anything about. I do bad stuff myself all the time. The goal is not to somehow be perfect – that’s silly, that’s naive. The goal is to just recognize there are choices in front of us, and to try to make better ones.
Jonathan Safran Foer
Bieber is the first mega YouTube star, born inexplicably out of a novel and disruptive medium. It has, of course, always been so for pop culture: feverish bubbles, silly novelty acts and disconcerting new forces impose themselves on a reluctant and condescending media.
Michael Wolff
England is strictly class-based. What's surprising is h

England is strictly class-based. What’s surprising is how many films are still made with a load of people in silly frocks running around gardens and talking in middle-class accents.
Stephen Daldry
People ask ‘do you make a conscious effort not to swear?’ – if you’re doing silly stuff you’re not tempted to put swearing in. All the comics from my childhood, who were funny without swearing, were the people that influenced me. What I do is quite traditional anyway.
Tim Vine
There are a lot of silly projects out there.
John Cameron Mitchell
I’ve been in silly movies and romantic movies and historic movies.
Kevin Bacon
I know that might sound silly coming from someone my age, but I remember on my 14th birthday having a crisis like my mom should be having. I kept thinking that I was getting older, and I haven’t really accomplished anything. I remember thinking that I better accomplish something real soon.
Q’orianka Kilcher
It’s silly to have a prototype, because one inevitably falls for someone unexpected. My only criterion is she shouldn’t just look nice; she must have a personality, too.
Arjun Kapoor
When a woman falls in love with me, I feel guilty. I am convinced that it’s pure obstinacy that keeps me from reciprocating her passion. As I explain to her that I’m gay, it sounds, even to me, like a silly excuse; I scarcely believe it myself.
Edmund White
I have grown up a lot over the years and now I can laugh about the silly mistakes I made on TV.
Megan McKenna
No, Jar Jar Binks was fine by me but probably went on a little bit too long. When they were in trouble and were battling, it should have been more serious and it became a bit too silly.
Jeremy Bulloch
I like to put on a wig or a fake mustache and do something silly with friends, do a little dance.
Tom Lenk
A very important part of my workday are the two Nunzillas on my windowsill. They keep me constant company. They’re little windup toys, and when they move across the desk, they spark from the mouth. I think of them as my editors. They sort of remind you that the world can be a silly place.
Erik Larson
My singing wasn’t horrible, but my dancing really made it look silly. It’s not like I’m a horrible singer that can’t sing. But I don’t have the consistency or the presentation skills that a good performer has.
William Hung
I placed some silly wagers, sixty grand here, eighty grand there. I’d ring up a bookie and bet £10,000 on something like who would be the first batsman out at Lord’s that day. I was that off my head.
Paul Merson
I don’t write listening to music, and in a way it seems silly that any writer should have to explain why not, as it’s possibly no different from saying you don’t eat gourmet dinners or play tennis while you’re at the keyboard.
Rachel Kushner
Superdelegates, first off, I think, are silly.
Jane O’Meara Sanders
Comfort is always a priority, but that doesn’t mean, just for the sake of comfort, I will wear some silly stuff and make myself look tacky.
Sonali Bendre
I’m not saying that comedy has to be a certain thing – I’m not trying to define comedy, where it’s like, it can only be silly things. But I think part of what makes a comedy is that at least part of the mantra of the show is trying to make people laugh.
Thomas Middleditch
It seemed silly to me I was getting all this recognition and attention for being with Howard. So I thought, ‘I have this platform, what can I do with it?’ Let’s put forth my passion of animal rescue.
Beth Ostrosky Stern
I’m sure in the history of Harvard, and the history of most schools, there’s been some pretty crazy parties that I’m not even sure you could even capture on film how silly and ridiculous they were.
Cameron Winklevoss
Sometimes it is claimed by those who argue that race is just a social construct that the human genome project shows that because people share roughly 99% of their genes in common, that there are no races. This is silly.
J. Philippe Rushton
Your basic, well-made novel by Ian McEwan or Jonathan Franzen just bores me silly.
David Shields
I’m not silly. I understand that, with age and at different parts of your career, you have different challenges.
Frank Lampard
I worry about everything, which is silly because there’s very little you can control anyway.
Maura Tierney
Witchcraft is one of the most baseless, absurd, disgusting and silly of all the humbugs.
P. T. Barnum
If there are signs that Americans bow to the gods of advertising, there are equally indications that people find the gods ridiculous. It is part of the popular culture that advertisements are silly.
Michael Schudson
At WSX the message was loud and clear consistently, even as a rookie signing a contract and kind of talking about things and getting into the nitty-gritty details. I felt like I was always given a lot of respect and in fact sometimes I thought they were almost tooting my own horn too loud I thought it was almost silly.
Matt Sydal
One night in a club in Boston, I tried the name Roger Duck. No laughs. The next night, I tried Orson Bean, putting together a pompous first name and a silly second name. I got laughs, so I decided to keep it.
Orson Bean
I don’t typically pay attention to most things in life, let alone award season. Not because I think it’s silly. I just don’t typically get caught up in it.
Thomas Middleditch
I was having a bad day, and my friend said, ‘Go wash your hair.’ I thought it was really silly – but it made me feel so much better. It might be a small thing, but it works. Washing it off and starting over.
Kaley Cuoco
You do silly things for love sometimes and not-so-smart things for love.
Queen Latifah
It’s silly to throw things out or label things. You know, is U2 a Christian band, or was Johnny Cash a Christian country singer? I don’t know, but they’re pretty open about their faith.
Mat Kearney
What am I doing in this silly showbiz life? I do wonder

What am I doing in this silly showbiz life? I do wonder that sometimes.
Saffron Burrows
I don’t think American family sitcoms are mean. I guess I really love ‘Arrested Development.’ I guess they are quite mean in that, but that is also a very silly, surreal, absurd show as well, and it has got a heart as well.
Simon Bird
‘Have fun’ is my message. Be silly. You’re allowed to be silly. There’s nothing wrong with it.
Jimmy Fallon
I hope I’m worthy in my dying. I hope I can maintain myself – that I wouldn’t become pathetic and needy, and the worst part of myself come out in adversity. But I’m not afraid of it. It’d be such a silly thing to do! To ruin the life you have by fearing its ending.
Brendan Gleeson
My goal is to be myself, and to challenge stereotypes, and to follow the rules, and break them, and make new rules. It’s not about doing something that’s already been done. That would be silly.
Sasha Grey
The ones doing that, counting me out, are going to look silly.
Liam Smith
If you are being weird or silly you can be excused because you are just playing a character.
Taryn Manning
Some very silly songs can have an almost melancholy feeling when you put it in a different perspective.
Jens Lekman
Schiff has pre-scripted a televised production titled ‘The Impeachment Inquiry Against President Trump.’ The story would likely be deemed too absurd and too boring to make it onto the silver screen as a drama, though it might succeed as a comedic farce – too silly to be taken seriously.
Kayleigh McEnany
Fame is a silly business. People who chase it are almost always going to be disappointed.
Tom Conti
There are a lot of myths about fat loss, and I wanted to explain how to do it properly, without obsessing over silly fads.
Chloe Madeley
If comedy can be both – silly and fun but also say something and start a dialogue – that’s the most you can ever ask for.
Lauren Ash
I think that a big part of comedy is being made fun of, and it is looking silly or looking stupid.
Alison Brie
I think if you’re gonna do something as silly and lighthearted as entertainment, then why not be interesting when you’re doing it?
Chelsea Handler
I do really silly dancing. I love dancing, but I’m not cool when I dance. It’s not about my moves, it’s not about how cool I am, it’s not about how slick I look on the dance floor, it’s about having a great time.
Imogen Heap
It’s really deep to me. Although it seems to many people that I’m making silly music, I’m really serious.
Youth is a silly, vapid state, Old age with fears and ills is rife; This simple boon I beg of Fate – A thousand years of Middle Life.
Carolyn Wells
I was always performing, doing silly voices. The teachers realized I could go one of two ways: be creative or destructive.
Benedict Cumberbatch
If you look at ‘Doctor Who,’ it’s a Time Lord in a blue box who travels around the universe. It’s a silly concept, but it’s one of the most brilliant, emotional experiences because it’s sort of about what is humanity.
Margaret Stohl
Being in a band is hard. Even if you like somebody, you start to argue over silly things.
Paul Gilbert
Hollywood comedy has gotten really silly and absurd, and I like that.
Alan Tudyk
For some reason, they always gave me a fat suit in high-school productions. If there was a character who needed to be robust, they gave me a fat suit, and I put on a silly voice.
Matt Bomer
My persona has always been what a man was never supposed to be. Outrageous, gregarious, crazy, silly, funny.
Richard Simmons
Sometimes those fears creep into the back of your head, but then you slap yourself and think, ‘Oh, woe is me! People actually like me.’ What a silly thing to worry about. This is a huge opportunity, and I’m excited.
Ben McKenzie
It’s very hard to respect people on holiday – everybody looks so silly at the beach, it makes you hate humanity – but when you see people at their work they elicit respect, whether it’s a mechanic, a stonemason or an accountant.
Alain de Botton
Showy displays of love don’t come naturally to everyone. They don’t come naturally to me. They also come with a risk: a risk of rejection, being made to feel silly, or making yourself into a spectacle.
Elizabeth Flock
Talking about Apple v. Microsoft without mentioning the Internet and the browser is like talking about WWII without talking about the nuke. Framing the conversation just in terms of open v. closed operating systems, the quality of the hardware or software or who the CEO was, is silly.
Michael Arrington
Sarah Palin is treated like a bimbo sometimes, but she has never given the public the respect they deserve. She acts silly and doesn’t know stuff. She didn’t even finish her term.
Gail Collins
While handling social media pages, my father accepted every friend suggestion that popped up on the screen. He’s shared some random videos and commented on people’s posts. I told him it’s silly paa ‘ and he laughed. Maybe on Father’s Day, I’ll teach him to order his favorite food on an app.
Pranitha Subhash
I was always silly in high school. I used to always get in trouble because I was laughing. I’ve always thought I was funny but never thought I could use it to make money. In 1996, I decided I was going to use my humor to get on TV to make money.
The love and passion I had for the game was my key. I never had that taken out of me by my parents or a silly coach.
Bobby Orr
It's silly to keep people alive who have a terrible dis

It’s silly to keep people alive who have a terrible disease.
Imogen Cunningham
Don’t be silly and don’t waste your time.
Bob Newhart
‘Dance Dance Revolution.’ That’s a lot of fun when you’re having a dinner party and you just want to be a little silly.
Natalie Martinez
If people never did silly things nothing intelligent would ever get done.
Ludwig Wittgenstein
I have an almost entirely written correspondence with a few friends of mine who are really busy. We exchange quite long and sometimes quite whimsical, sometimes quite meaningful, sometimes silly letters.
Sue Perkins
I had six silly tattoos done when I was young and I bitterly regret them. I’ve thought about laser surgery, but that leaves a scar, so I’m just leaving them.
Andre Benjamin
You are in a strange world in pantomime, where you are allowed to step out and talk to the audience and do silly gags. Sometimes I feel like a cartoon character.
Roger Allam
I’ve been bitten by a python. Not a very big one. I was being silly, saying: ‘Oh, it’s not poisonous…’ Then, wallop! But you have fear around animals.
David Attenborough
It’s silly to work hard the whole week and then spoil it by not preparing properly before the game.
Arsene Wenger
I know this is silly, it’s shallow, it’s bad, I wish I wasn’t this way-but if I meet a girl with no teeth, I just don’t want to date her. It’s creepy of me, I wish I was a bigger person, but that’s my real turn-off.
Peter Farrelly
At a time when the GOP is playing games with the debt limit, a member of the Supreme Court is refusing to recuse himself from matters he has a financial interest in, and middle class incomes are stagnant, many want to change the subject. I don’t. This was a prank, and a silly one. I’m focused on my work.
Anthony Weiner
We learned a verse of this and that and we were having fun with the songs. Tommy would make up stories to go along with them and I would yell at him, ‘Hey, stupid, that’s not right,’ and he was like a silly kid trying to impress.
Dick Smothers
Well, I’ve always prefered playing spin off the back foot because, to my mind, it takes short leg and silly point out of the equation.
Nasser Hussain
It would be silly not to admit that there are some sections of the public who are unconvinced by the benefits or have doubts about the motives behind it. We have to be clear that GM is not all about profits for multinational companies.
Mark Walport
Even making clothes for Hollywood films, you do not get paid silly money. It is hard work and takes time.
Esme Young
I tried changing my swing because I thought it would make me better. I thought it would make me a world-class golfer. I was a bit naive and I was a bit silly and just got going the wrong way.
Tommy Fleetwood
My son is becoming me – just a silly, silly prankster guy.
Kevin Hart
The last thing that scared me… it was probably something stupid, like when someone jumped out at me, or I thought my new dog had gone to the toilet underneath my piano. Lots of silly things.
Rebecca Hall
What I’ve found I really like about sci-fi is it can look at philosophical questions about humanity but in a different context. It can really make you think. That’s what ‘Doctor Who’ does, even if it’s a bit silly some other times.
Sarah Snook
Don’t be afraid to look silly.
Tara Strong
Every actor has an obsession with their hair. You can see it on set, and you start to realize it’s completely silly. I can be very obsessed by my hair, but all these hours spent trying to style it are useless, because ultimately, you can’t change your haircut. It’s all the same.
Louis Garrel
I think that both parties should declare the debt limit as a political weapon of mass destruction which can’t be used. I mean, it is silly to have a country that has 237 years building up its reputation and then have people threaten to tear it down because they’re not getting some other matter.
Warren Buffett
Bolsonaro must relax, I do not plan to shut down the economy. It’s silly.
Alberto Fernandez
I skate all the time, but it’s silly for me to do contests when MTV is giving me a boatload of money.
Bam Margera
One of my favorite films is ‘Dumb and Dumber.’ I’d love to do some really silly comedy someday.
Paul Dano
People who are creative, who do it as a lifestyle, it’s kind of silly to make that claim you’re done, because you just never know when that spark is going to hit you again. You can’t necessarily predict how you’re going to feel. In ten years I’ll be 58, and I might still feel like making a punk record.
Greg Graffin
I love to have fun and goof around and be silly, so anybody who can also do that is good for me.
Taylor Lautner
When I was a little girl, I dreamt of winning grand slams and being No. 1 in the world. That dream stays the same as long as you’re doing the career that you’re on. I think it would be silly for that to change.
Johanna Konta
It’s much easier for me to be silly than it is to be serious on soap opera.
Doug Davidson
We live in a time where it’s very much in vogue, constant search for pure utopian equality, and which, on one level, is quite amusingly silly but also on another probably very important.
Nicolas Winding Refn
As silly as it sounds, I want to do some sort of superhero type of role. That’s always been something I’m interested in.
Meagan Tandy
I clean out my house weekly. I just keep a lot of silly

I clean out my house weekly. I just keep a lot of silly little things that are meaningful to me.
Cassie Scerbo
When you’re a teenager, everything seems like the end of the world, and I don’t think that’s necessarily a silly thing. You’re waking up and becoming aware that the world has problems and those problems affect you, whereas when you’re young they don’t seem to affect you that much even if you’re aware of them.
Veronica Roth
To think that everybody’s like you is silly.
Charles Barkley
I like surprising my audiences, and it’s compulsory to have fun and be silly; I never take myself quite too seriously.
Rachel Tucker
All of our heroes did silly stuff early and got more serious as time went on. Steve Martin, Adam Sandler, Bill Murray. They got older, wiser, and made different choices.
Akiva Schaffer
My first, big, silly role at school was as Arthur Crocker-Harris in Rattigan’s ‘The Browning Version,’ where my job was to make school-masters’ wives weep with recognition.
Benedict Cumberbatch
I don’t like it when people say I was the best ever. It’s silly. I am not the best ever. I was the best of my time.
Eddy Merckx
My favorite app is ‘StumbleUpon,’ because it just gives you interesting things that are sometimes exactly the stuff I’m interested in and sometimes just silly and funny.
Christine Quinn
I had a moment where I realised I could do silly voices, that lots of people I knew couldn’t do silly voices, and that thus I must be able to make money doing silly voices.
Rob Brydon
Big Brother sounded like a silly stunt and that’s what it is.
Nigel Kneale
Cartoon violence is something very vivid and dark but made palatable for children in a fun way. That’s the kind of comedy I do – I try to take subjects that might seem deep and make them as silly as possible.
Michael Che
I was kind of the comic relief in my household. We had a chronic illness in the family. And so, a lot of emergency room visits, and my role was to be silly and add levity, and we’re Jewish. So every Passover is a performance. You kind of learn to role play and do voices at the Passover Seder.
Alex Borstein
I would never withhold information about the murder of my man Biggie, or anybody else. It’s just silly and ridiculous. The accusations are just flying out. All I’ve been trying to do all my life is to make great music.
Sean Combs
I’m not the religious-conspiracy-theorist go-to guy, particularly. But I think it’s really kind of silly to try to equate birds falling out of the sky with some kind of an end-times theory.
Kirk Cameron
When people ask me silly questions about my private life, I just say, I don’t discuss that.
Imogen Cunningham
Growing up, I held back a lot in fear of looking silly or thinking I wouldn’t make it.
Gemma Atkinson
I also found being called Sir rather silly.
Harold Pinter
I’m known for being silly and fun and lighthearted.
I’ve made some very silly mistakes.
James Arthur
You always have to be on at times, and occasionally people get upset if you say no to a picture when you’re eating dinner or something, and that’s kind of the hard part. Or if you get crazy rumors that swirl around you from time to time that are just silly.
Aaron Rodgers
Sometimes the stuff I come up with is so silly I feel like I need to apologize at the end of every one of them.
Will Sasso
I am doing my job and trying to win a game for my team. I shouldn’t be getting racially abused; it’s silly.
Jermain Defoe
When it comes to the acting stuff, I like to show up for a couple days and kind of be outrageous and silly, and go back to my day job.
Josh Groban
I think that weight divisions in wrestling is a little silly as we never adhere to them.
Austin Aries
I like to have fun, I’m silly, and I keep the mood light.
Kylie Jenner
Whereas ‘OddParents’ was slam-bam and silly all the way through, ‘Danny Phantom’ has more of a good-guy-vs.-bad-guy comic book feel.
Butch Hartman
I even do things sometimes just to get the crowd booing me, whether it’s smashing someone or doing something deliberately silly. It’s been part of my game for a long time now.
Robbie Savage
I know that there are a lot of sort of silly things that one thinks as a music listener about bands. I am a fan of many bands.
James Mercer
These poor women in academia have to talk this silly language that nobody can understand in order to be accepted, they think.
Gloria Steinem
Even now, I’m very superstitious, in silly ways. I always put my left boot on first. Or on set, I always tie my bow tie from right to left.
Matt Smith
Some comedies, they want you falling on your face and doing silly things.
Jason Statham
I have no real ambition or strategy. If this was all to

I have no real ambition or strategy. If this was all to finish, it’s totally fine. There’s a lot more to do out there than put on silly frocks and shout for a living. I could always go back to, ‘Would you like soup with that?’
Michelle Gomez
The whole time that I was doing the voice of Korra, I would always joke around saying that nobody’s gonna give me a job as an action star or a hero. I just do silly comedy.
Janet Varney
I turned down a movie this summer because it was nine weeks in Vancouver and my oldest daughter is 14. I’ve got four more summers with her. I’m not giving away nine weeks of her summer to go do a silly movie.
Jeff Foxworthy
When I was six years old, I fell in love with magic. For Christmas, I got a magic box and a very old book on card manipulation. Somehow, I was more interested in pure manipulation than in all the silly little tricks in the box.
Philippe Petit
It’s very easy for me to play silly, but to reveal something closer to you, that’s so much harder.
Will Ferrell
Those who claim to have had happy lives seem to be silly fools.
Taylor Caldwell
I’ve been called fat my whole life. I am fat, so it’s kind of silly to get mad about it.
Tess Holliday
There’s this idea that if you want to write, you shouldn’t study literature because then you’re dissecting what you love, and you should keep your love of literature pure. I think that’s kind of silly.
Elif Batuman
The silly antics that would get me in trouble at school have put me on the best-seller list. So I guess the moral here is ignore your teach… never mind. That’s not the moral. Probably.
MaryJanice Davidson
I really, really, really want to do a silly romantic comedy where I can just have a crush on the guy, trip over myself, and laugh and be goofy. I just feel like all I do is cry, sob, and fight zombies and the bad guys.
Laurie Holden
Girls groups tend to break up more because sometimes it’s hard for women to get along. And everybody is like, ‘They’re breaking up over silly stuff.’ That’s not the silly thing to me – to break up. The silly part is that you couldn’t get back together. It’s about working out, because everyone has their differences.
Lisa Lopes
What a dichotomy. What conflicting ideas that we love and embrace these women, and entrust them to raise our children and to feed us and to bathe us, but we keep something as silly as a bathroom separate.
Kathryn Stockett
It’s almost embarrassing, but I do have one trick for taking portraits on commission. I carry one of these little bicycle horns in my pocket, and once in a while, when someone is sour-faced or stiff, I blow my horn. It sort of shatters the barriers. It’s silly, but it works.
Elliott Erwitt
Most of my characters are silly little boys. It’s human. Everyone is badly behaved.
Harry Enfield
Every day, my mom and I would watch a different Judy Garland VHS. I love how she tells a story when she sings. It was just about her voice and the words she was singing – no strings attached or silly hair or costumes, just a woman singing her heart out. I feel like that doesn’t happen that much anymore.
Ariana Grande
Part of my life’s thesis is that we live in a culture that has bought into the patently silly idea that there is a divide between the secular world and the faith world.
Eric Metaxas
I do revel slightly in the fact that I am what I am – an English, middle-class, public-school-educated bloke. There is a reputation with that of being slightly stiff, but whoever gets to know me will see some other element – whether it be vulnerable or silly or camp.
Elliot Cowan
I honestly don’t understand the big fuss made over nudity and sex in films. It’s silly.
Sharon Tate
A lot of the stuff that I want to create personally is usually pretty absurd or silly comedy stuff.
Patti Harrison
When you repeat yourself so many times, even if you’re speaking the truth, the repetition starts to feel false. Sometimes, you just feel like the words you’re speaking, even if they once had meaning, have lost it. And that makes you feel kind of silly.
Paul Dano
The most important item on my desk is a picture of my husband and three kids making kooky faces at my niece’s wedding. We all look silly and happy.
Shira Goodman
I think the No. 1 universal thing is that everybody’s got that silly thing in their closet that they think could be worth money. There’s always a chance you could turn on ‘Pawn Stars’ one day and that’d be on there.
Corey Harrison
I like being absurd. Being silly.
Jimmy Fallon
The pressures on younger players now are greater. You’ve just got to be on your toes all the time with social media and stuff. Now you just go to fill your car up, and there will be somebody wanting to film you trying to do something silly like that.
Gareth Barry
Of all the things I do, acting is the thing that grabs most, but there’s another level on which it strikes me as being a little silly. In the end you’re dressing up and deciding to be somebody.
Jane Asher
Saying someone’s a fan of animation is as silly as saying someone’s a fan of live action. That can mean anything.
Raphael Bob-Waksberg
I loved practical jokes. I loved being goofy on the playground, and I loved doing silly cartoons, but I was not this subversive little delinquent. I am an Eagle Scout, after all.
Steve Breen
Life is all about the friendship and the love and the music. It sounds silly, but it is. I want to have that experience as much as I can as an adult, not as a kid doing something that people are telling her she has to do. If anyone gets in my way, I’m going to get them out of my way.
Fiona Apple
You know how when you’re alone with your cat, your cat is kind of silly and goofy and kind of crazy? And as soon as people come over, your cat is like someone you’ve never met before? You know, poised. That’s sort of what it’s like working with Jennifer Lopez.
Michaela Watkins
It took me a long time to learn how to be brave enough to put myself out there and try everything, no matter how strange or silly. If I can impart that same wisdom to other folks – no matter what age – it would be an honor.
Alethea Kontis
Oh, my God. I want to be a mother, and I anticipate loving my children quite fiercely. I think about it all the time, though it’s a silly thing to think about because the kind of mother I’ll be depends on the kind of children I have. I can’t wait to meet them.
Anne Hathaway
Getting divorced just because you don't love a man is a

Getting divorced just because you don’t love a man is almost as silly as getting married just because you do.
Zsa Zsa Gabor
He didn’t even have the satisfaction of being killed for civil rights. it had to be some silly little Communist.
Jackie Kennedy
You can use up all the slums for new development. In all the cities of the world, there are large areas of these. Also, you can avoid the spread of these silly suburban houses. Chicago has thousands of them all over the place.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
I think it’s silly for anyone to think you could write under the influence, but if they’d like to think that, I’d like to keep the legend alive. Maybe I was under the influence when I wrote Jesus’ Son and I just didn’t know it.
Denis Johnson
Now, everybody, I suppose, is aware that in recent years the silly business of divination by dreams has ceased to be a joke and has become a very serious science.
Arthur Machen
It’s silly talking about how many years we will have to spend in the jungles of Vietnam when we could pave the whole country and put parking stripes on it and still be home by Christmas.
Ronald Reagan
I think I always wanted to be an actor – sounds a bit boring, doesn’t it? And I pretended once that I wanted to be a vet because one of the teachers asked me and saying you want to be an actor sounds a little bit silly. And I do still feel a bit silly saying it. You feel a bit fraudulent.
Sophie Thompson
Once again, the ‘New York Times’ has chosen to purposefully ignore facts and professional journalism to fit their political agenda, choosing to attack my character and reputation rather than present an honest report. The suggestion that I accepted cash payments is unfounded, silly, and nonsensical.
Paul Manafort
