Words matter. These are the best Blake Quotes from famous people such as Patti Smith, Kirstin Maldonado, Spencer Dinwiddie, Hozier, Adrian Mitchell, and they’re great for sharing with your friends.
I sang ‘O Holy Night’ with the Vatican orchestra, but also a Blake – a lullaby that William Blake wrote for the Christ child, and I set it to music, and the Vatican orchestra played the music.
The first artist that did it for me with just production was James Blake… I was just blown away… I feel like James Blake kind of was the one that introduced me into that world.
Steve Blake is a great vet, but when I’m sitting behind him it’s just like, c’mon, guys.’
I’d love to do something with somebody like James Blake.
There have always been poets who performed. Blake sang his Songs of Innocence and Experience to parties of friends.
I, Daniel Blake’ is a powerful and moving film. But it is a political polemic and is particularly unfair on the public sector professionals who work in Job Centre Plus, in my experience they are proactive and helpful. Completely at odds with their portrayal in the film.
I love Blake Lively. She’s one of my favorite actresses, and she’s got a really classy and beautiful look. She’s somebody that I really look up to and follow.
It’s been a slow steady climb since my solo band got together almost 20 years ago. Me and my manager Blake were just talking about this, how every show has a few more people at it, every record has done a little better.
A lot of poets too live on the margins of social acceptance, they certainly aren’t in it for the money. William Blake – only his first book was legitimately published.
A sure way to claim a bit of cool in Hollywood – if you’re an actress, at least – is to announce you don’t have a stylist. Some of the most consistently elegant, inimitable women on the red carpet, like Marion Cotillard, Blake Lively, and Diane Kruger, say they go at it alone.
It was a great time being with Blake & Murphy. I always made sure that, even if their matches weren’t going the way they wanted to, they went the way that I wanted to.
There can be no proof that Blake’s lyric is composed of the best words in the best order; only a conviction, accepted by our knowledge and judgment, that it is so.
I get the Swansea-Cardiff thing: I was a Swansea player; I loved playing against Cardiff. But when I played for Wales and played with Jason Perry or Nathan Blake, I never saw them as blue and white and me as black and white.
I really thought I was on the way out. My husband Blake saved my life. Often I don’t know what I do, then the next day the memory returns. And then I am engulfed in shame.
I can’t believe I beat James Blake.
Alan Moore’s first choice to be the Comedian… was Burt Reynolds. But I never saw myself as Burt Reynolds; I saw myself as Edward Blake.
I have no prejudice about which music is better. I listen to Vivaldi. I like Nick Cave. I love Travis Scott, James Blake, Lola Flores. Music can serve many functions. And so I listen to everything!
I totally think there was a country hair phase. If you look at all the mullets, and Dolly Parton, and Reba’s hair, Tim McGraw’s hair, Blake Shelton’s hair, they definitely had their moments.
I never would have thought I would be able to learn as much as I did from Blake Shelton, so I want to open up the doors to working with people that might not make sense on paper, collaborating with different artists like that, because you can never stop learning. That’s the most important thing.
Meeting Ryan Reynolds was really cool, and Blake Lively.
My top three personal best-dressed list: Lea Michele. I think she really knows how to dress. Blake Lively is great. And Rihanna. I really respect how bold and out-there she is.
It doesn’t bother me that people think that Blake Shelton made me go country, because I can understand it. My immediate past is pop-rock, and people don’t know a ton about me as a kid – yet. They will soon.
Blake is damned good to steal from.
Blake Lively is my style icon, and she always has rocking clothes and shoes. She keeps it really simple with hair and makeup, and I try to do the same thing. Onstage, I do a little smokier, a little more contouring, but I still always want to be an approachable and real artist, so I never try to go overboard.
I don’t really have any interest in doing Donald Blake stories. Maybe it’s just I don’t know what to do with that sort of alter ego.
Blake has always been a favorite, the lyrics, not so much the prophetic books, but I suppose Yeats influenced me more as a young poet, and the American, Robert Frost.
I am not a farceur. I am not Blake Edwards.
I did interviews with tennis greats, like James Blake and John Isner. I also interviewed tennis pros who aren’t well – known but who made all the same sacrifices but had just a little spark of a professional career and are now still orbiting the sport, either as a teaching pro or a coach.
I got into James Blake quite early, like when I was early teen, and that was really important for me.
After our first week of filming ‘Deadpool 2,’ Blake Lively got me a candle. It smells really good, and it said, ‘To Firefist’ on it.
I really liked Quentin Blake, who did all of Roald Dahl’s stuff. I don’t think I really got Quentin Blake as a kid, but as I grew older, I really appreciated the kind of knowledge and the skill that went into those seemingly effortless drawings, and I really wanted to capture some of that in my own work.
I actually am a country music fan. I listen to a lot of Blake Shelton and Carrie Underwood and Maren Morris and Keith Urban.
Blake Griffin has shown he can be an All-NBA performer.
Two more years were to go by before I knew anything about William Blake. Many years later, when his wife died, my godfather gave me the two books as a remembrance.
I think either Robert Blake wither pulled the trigger or hired someone to do it, but it will be a tough case to prove. I think there’s a very good chance he may take the stand, and that’s what I’m waiting for.
I remember me being that kid growing up. Me being the kid that grew up going to games and being a ball boy and wanting a high five from Blake Griffin or the other players.
Roald Dahl worked with other illustrators, but it was only when he teamed up with Quentin Blake that the chemistry began to fizz. Quentin Blake is Britain’s greatest living illustrator and has that special talent all the great illustrators have, of unobtrusive brilliance.
The people I really admire, like William Blake and John Coltrane and Richard Wagner, had these ridiculously full universes that took their entire lives to describe.
James Blake, Jai Paul, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Sohn, Kwabs, Sampha, Lil Silva, and Brandy, always. They all have soul. Deep soul.
Constance Wu is so dedicated, Anna Kendrick is ridiculously funny, and Blake Lively is magnetic.
I studied voice at Yale with Blake Stern from the music school, and he had me singing German lieder and Italian songs.
I have always been averse to theorizing about the art or craft of biography. Like Disraeli’s biographer, Lord Blake, who offers the cautionary analogy of the biographical centipede unsure of her next step because of too much cerebration, I have made it my practice to let the facts find the theory.
It’s true that Blake was emotionally disturbed – always has been – but he doesn’t have murder in his heart. If he was going to do any damage to anything or anyone, it would be to himself.
I haven’t seen a professional player come out of New York in over 20 years since my brother Patrick came out. Blake spent a few years in Harlem, but he moved to Connecticut when he was a kid.
I’d like to think the scientists need us – but do they? Did Newton need Blake?
