'Goodnight Moon' is a staple of any nursery bookshelf.

‘Goodnight Moon’ is a staple of any nursery bookshelf. So, too, are ‘Harold and the Purple Crayon’ and ‘Madeline.’ These books are just as much a part of mainstream reading culture as ‘The Catcher in the Rye,’ and they are passed down from generation to generation.
Rebecca Serle
Vita Sackville-West is one of my favorite female icons. She was a writer and a prolific gardener, but she also had a relationship with Virginia Woolf, and she was married to Sir Harold Nicolson. She was a woman who lived outside of norms.
Gwendoline Christie
We are quick to stick labels on others – especially those who don’t fit in with the norm. ‘Harold Fry’ is about a broken marriage; ‘Perfect’ is about a broken person. They are both about finding kindness where you least expect it.
Rachel Joyce
Harold Lloyd was not a comedian. But he was the finest actor to play a comedian that I ever saw.
Hal Roach
As a student, I had stayed with Winston Churchill; later, I had lunched with Harold Macmillan – in fact, had met most of the post-war prime ministers of Great Britain from Douglas-Home to Tony Blair.
Nigel Hamilton
When you watch it, you’re like, Wow. I look like that. But it doesn’t feel like that at all. It was about communicating with Gale Harold and getting across what I wanted to say about the character.
Randy Harrison
In writing about Harold and Maureen with their terrible unspoken secret, and all those people that Harold meets as he walks to save a friend’s life, I was trying to celebrate the ordinary people.
Rachel Joyce
I trained as an actor with Lee Strasberg, Elia Kazan, and Harold Clurman, and those guys set a very high bar.
Martin Landau
John Updike is always fun. And one of my former students, Tom Pynchon. And Harold Bloom, another former student.
M. H. Abrams
One of the pleasing things about science is that we do all climb towards the heavens on the shoulders of our predecessors. Economics, like physics, has its heroes, and the letter ‘H’ that I used in my mathematical equations was not there to honor Sir William Hamilton, but rather Harold Hotelling.
Paul Samuelson
The story of Harold Fry and his unlikely pilgrimage began as an afternoon play for radio. For many years, I have been writing plays and adapting novels for ‘Woman’s Hour’ and the ‘Classic’ series. So this was originally a three-hander play, broadcast one sunny afternoon on BBC Radio 4.
Rachel Joyce
Harold, like the rest of us, had many impressions which saved him the trouble of distinct ideas.
George Eliot
There was a best-selling book in the late ’60s and ’70s called ‘The Adventurers’ by Harold Robbins. The lead character’s name was Dax. Anyone that’s roughly my age that’s named Dax is named from that book.
Dax Shepard
It is actually getting much harder for someone from an ordinary background to break through the ranks. In the period from 1964 to 1997, every single Prime Minister – from Harold Wilson to John Major – was the product of a state school.
Andrew Neil
I’m a sucker for movies about uncommon friendships: ‘Midnight Cowboy,’ ‘Harold and Maude,’ ‘Scarecrow,’ ‘The Last Detail,’ ‘Y Tu Mama Tambien,’ ‘Jules and Jim,’ ‘Rushmore,’ ‘Stand by Me.’
Ryan Fleck
Harold and Maude’ is a film I just keep finding myself rewatching.
Peter Hedges
My first show in high school was ‘The Music Man.’ I was a junior. I played Harold Hill. I did the role at the University of Miami, too. I do love that musical. To do it in high school and college and then to do it professionally – I mean, come on!
Joshua Henry
I actually grew up around the corner from where Harold Pinter did. If you want a snapshot of my childhood, me and Pinter, we essentially grew up together.
Zawe Ashton
‘Master Harold’ is about me as a little boy, and my father, who was an alcoholic. There’s a thread running down the Fugard line of alcoholism. Thankfully I haven’t passed it on to my child, a wonderful daughter who’s stone-cold sober. But I had the tendency from my father, just as he had had it from his father.
Athol Fugard
I grew up on Harold Lloyd, Charles Chaplin, and Buster Keaton, and those were the ones who inspired me.
Navid Negahban
I think obviously the ‘Harold and Kumar’ stuff is trying to lean head first into the raunch.
John Cho
There are not many intellectuals left of Harold Pinter’s stature who dare raise their voices – and with such force – against the menace of U.S. and the unrestricted use of its power. Pinter’s voice is an unceasing thunder.
Gioconda Belli
I worked with Harold Pinter once as my first Broadway show. It was one of the most exciting things that ever happened to me.
F. Murray Abraham
Where I grew up, in Harold Hill, it was rough and it still is now. I used to live in a little council flat, next to the shops, and there was always trouble, people getting stabbed.
Jonjo Shelvey
In January 1962, when I was the author of one and a half unperformed plays, I attended a student production of ‘The Birthday Party’ at the Victoria Rooms in Bristol. Just before it began, I realised that Harold Pinter was sitting in front of me.
