I don’t want to be 45 competing with 20-year-olds, running to go get Botox. I want to be an expressive actor hired for the age that I am, portraying women who are my age: 40. I’m just hoping I can find some of those roles to play. Otherwise, I have to find something else.
Debi Mazar
Work wise, as a stunt woman, I enjoy telly – or TV – because – and, as an actor – I kind of enjoy the urgency of it. I enjoy the problem-solving that’s happening.

Wong Kar-wai
I’ve always thought stability was suffocating and deadly. Like, when I read that the kids I went to law school with have stayed at the same firm, I feel like I’m reading an obituary. How much money do you need? Six million, seven million? Put that in the bank and do something else. Get out!
Glenn Greenwald
That’s all true, but there was something else going on for me as a kid, something about my gender identity that I haven’t figured out yet. And that’s one of the things I’m hoping to dissect and investigate in this memoir project.

Noam Chomsky
Nobody in this country goes around saying: ‘I’m feeling very oppressed by the E.U.’ Well, one or two people do, but they’re a bit odd. Ultimately, if they’re getting oppressed by the E.U., they’re going to start to feel oppressed by something else and just switch to a new subject of oppression.

Matt Cassel
I love what I do. I’m appreciative and I’m still competitive. I still love baseball, but it doesn’t consume me. If I can’t do it anymore, then I go home and do something else. It’s not the end of the world. It’s just the end of your career.
Dontrelle Willis

Shea Whigham
What’s amazing is that I’m recognized all over the world through ‘Red Dwarf.’ British fans are exceptional, but the American fans are something else. Some of them fly 500 miles to stand in line for three hours, just to meet me, then when they do they collapse. It makes you feel like a rock star!
Craig Charles
We are cannibalizing our audience by only giving them regurgitated material. Every movie is either a remake, a sequel, based on something else. Based on a former television series. Based on a successful videogame.

A. J. Pritchard
With Instapaper, I can take a few months off. I can’t stop publishing ‘The Magazine’ for two months and work on something else.

Ben Carson
I’m just riding this train as long as I can. As long as I’m having fun, I’ll do it. When it stops being fun, I’ll try something else. Maybe I’ll open up a chain of Popeye’s Chicken.
Gabrielle Union
Some people manage to make that transition from child a

Denis Leary
After 2000 or so, I started to realize I wanted to be doing something else. I didn’t want to be in front of a camera. I was frustrated. I didn’t think I would stop acting, but I didn’t want to be seen.

The first rejection that ‘Dexter’ got, I was like, ‘OK. This hasn’t worked. Let’s try something else. I’ll go get a teaching job or something.’

Jim Parrack
An artist is always thinking of something else. My father was like that. He had this feeling of abstraction, and I do, too.

Standup comedy is inordinately difficult. If doing something else for a living will make you equally happy, choose that instead. I’m serious. Comedy is punishing.
Aisha Tyler
My pug dog, Princess , is something else; she’s my baby. I’ve had her for about 14 and a half years. They usually don’t live any longer than 15, but I don’t believe that. As long as you treat them right, they will live a long time.
Jimmy Scott
My mother was a very beautiful lady, I thought. She was very good to me. I guess – she died when I was nine and a half, but if she had lived, I probably wouldn’t be trying to play guitar. She wanted me to be known, but as something else. Not a guitar player.
B. B. King
I like what I’m doing. If I didn’t like what I was doing, I’d be doing something else.

Maybe it is because of Facebook or something else, but I have been interested in journalism for a long time.

Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works. If it works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is the doing something else.
Tom Peters
I have chosen this job. If I didn’t like it, I would have chosen something else. I can’t go out and say that ‘I don’t like it.’
Disha Patani
I don’t understand if it was, like, Palestinians were here, then it was called Israel, and that’s the problem, or they never had their land. Everyone just goes back and forth. So it seems like everyone can just have a piece… call the whole thing something else.

I take time with my films and I want to work on every script properly before I move on to something else.

Trombone Shorty
I've become convinced that nostalgia is a fundamentally

I’ve become convinced that nostalgia is a fundamentally unhealthy modality. When you see it, it’s usually attached to something else that’s really, seriously bad. I don’t traffic in nostalgia. We’re becoming a global culture.
William Gibson
It’s like you always think that when you get to a goal, you’ll be happy. But then there is always something else that interests you.

When our career is over, when we retire and the basketball stops bouncing, we still have to find something else to do.
John Wall
By and large, the making of motion pictures is all about, ‘Let’s ratchet it up.’ And I always think, ‘We don’t need to ratchet this up.’ If you do, don’t call it ‘Captain Phillips’ or ‘The Maersk Alabama.’ Call it something else, and then you have carte blanche to do anything, down to sea serpents and aliens.
Tom Hanks
What I’m exploring right now is the subject of my own mortality. It’s an area that I’m curious about, and I’m researching it to see if there’s a photographic essay in it for me. If images don’t start to come, I’ll go to something else.
Leonard Nimoy
Money is misunderstood. The fact is if you want to be successful – the money will follow you. If you are a doctor, something else will follow you. If you are successful, there is an accompaniment. If your goal is just to make money, you won’t succeed. Money is a commodity to use, not to be dictated by.
Frank Lowy
If your current get-rich project fails, take what you learned and try something else. Keep repeating until something lucky happens. The universe has plenty of luck to go around; you just need to keep your hand raised until it’s your turn. It helps to see failure as a road and not a wall.
Scott Adams
Working harder is not a sustainable solution and it’s not how people meet their destiny. It’s time to get more creative. Instead of choosing one thing we love over something else we love, we must ask, ‘how can I do both?’ And, then, we can find solutions.
Maynard Webb
When I got to college, I used to run on top of everything else, because when you gain weight in swimming, you have to do something else, like bike or run, to maintain the weight or take the weight off.
Summer Sanders
You know how someone – something – surprises you. You wake up a little bit. That’s done through Chinese cuisine – for example, through dishes of artifice. That’s a whole sub-tradition in Chinese cuisine. To create a dish that comes to the table looking like one thing but actually is something else.
Nicole Mones
Ultimately, rugby players are like surfers. You look for the perfect wave, but you don’t always find it. And if you did, you’d probably pack up and try something else.
Alun Wyn Jones
His failures are as valuable as his successes: by misjudging one thing he conforms something else, even if at the time he does not know what that something else is.
Bridget Riley
I feel like if you read something, and it makes you so curious about a topic that you then go read something else, that’s exciting.
Curtis Sittenfeld
Then I became a mother and it just fills every space, that isn’t filled with something else important. It’s just like this incredible balloon that blows up and fills life up.
Thandie Newton
Practice quality, and you get better at quality. But quality takes time, so by working solely on quality, you end up losing something else that’s important – speed.
Jason Fried
When I first came to Playboy, I thought I would go on and do something else in a few years. But when the company got into trouble with political and regulatory challenges, I felt that I could really lead the turn around.
Christie Hefner
Risk is essential. There is not growth of inspiration in staying within what is safe and comfortable. Once you find out what you do best, why not try something else?
Alex Noble
The generation we live in, we’re constantly entertained – we turn our heads this way, and there’s something else to entertain us. Sitting down in one seat for two hours may not be enough anymore.
Ruthie Ann Miles
You have to find the place where you abandon everything of yourself. Then you can let something else happen.
Marion Cotillard
I wanted to stimulate thought instead of throwing things out or try to give a perspective. I just put stuff up and it’s up for two or three weeks and I get tired of it, so I take it down and put something else up.
Krist Novoselic
I often find that having an idea in my head prevents me from doing something else. Working is therefore a way of getting rid of an idea.
Jasper Johns
A hero that doesn’t look like you makes you want to be something else.
Jon M. Chu
You can give to Americans for Prosperity or something else – a variety of different ways to push back against the party of government.
Mitch McConnell
The only way that I can do better than someone else, maybe they’re better at something else, but they’ll never beat me at work.
Kevin McCarthy
Once the words of a book appear onscreen, they are no longer simply themselves; they have become a part of something else. They now occupy the same space, not only as every other digital text, but as every other medium, too.
Tom Chatfield
I was over-confident while growing up. I think when you look a certain way, you try and compensate by something else. I was always a strong child, was always confident, but looks never mattered to me.
Sonakshi Sinha
I feel strongly for the younger actresses when a lot of their career is based on how they look. That must be hard when your looks begin to go and you haven’t built up the wealth of character parts to get into something else.
Janet McTeer
As readers, we sense when the game is being played for real and when something else is afoot: pride, showmanship, the pursuit of power, self-aggrandizement, revenge, making money. Not that there’s anything wrong with any of that, but I dislike closing a book with the sense that I’ve been had.
Stacey D’Erasmo
In fashion design, you can divide people into two groups. You have people who come with an aesthetic that is there forever, even if it evolves. Then you have people I call ‘jumpers.’ One season it can be this; the next season it’s completely something else. I always knew I am more of a jumper.
Raf Simons
I was in ‘Seussical,’ and I was in a cage onstage in a purple yarn suit singing backup, and I was like: ‘I’ve had it. I can’t do this anymore.’ I will say for the record that I did love the show, but I was like: ‘I want to do something else. I need a little more.’
Casey Nicholaw
I love the game, but I'm not going to play the game for

I love the game, but I’m not going to play the game for the rest of my life, so you need something else you’re good at, another passion. You have to be well-rounded, or else you’re going to burn out, and you’ll lose passion for what you’re doing.
Willie Cauley-Stein
I wanted to show that pop music can be about something else other than the big love songs.
Sigrid
I love YA, and it’s been a really good fit for me. But at some point, I would like to try something else: a collection of short stories, or writing about something other than high school. A lot has happened to me since I was eighteen.
Sarah Dessen
Do something. If it doesn’t work, do something else. No idea is too crazy.
Jim Hightower
It is no good getting furious if you get stuck. What I do is keep thinking about the problem but work on something else. Sometimes it is years before I see the way forward. In the case of information loss and black holes, it was 29 years.
Stephen Hawking
I was at the mercy of somebody else to just give me a job in the years after ‘Boy Meets World’ ended, whereas if I had gone to college and had when a Plan B, and it was something else that I loved, I could’ve walked away at any point.
Danielle Fishel
It’s really interesting how music can knock down a wall and be an open connection between you and someone else where something else can’t. When music comes along, it just opens your heart a little more.
Phillip Sweet
A poem is true if it hangs together. Information points to something else. A poem points to nothing but itself.
E. M. Forster
Being a father taught me patience. And it taught me vulnerability. You don’t realize how vulnerable you are when you love something else more far more than yourself.
Dean Cain
When I don’t have a good time making music, I think of quitting a lot. I really do. I can create something else. I’ll do something else.
Danger Mouse
Every time you revisit a book, you get something else out of it.
Jacqueline Woodson
I’d rather play with 10 people and just get penalized all the way until we have to do something else rather than play with 11 when I know that right now that person is not sold out to be a part of this team.
Mike Singletary
As an actor, you express certain things because they need to be expressed, and then you don’t really feel a need to do it again. I want to feel something else, you know?
Chiwetel Ejiofor
My family wasn’t involved in the college. They were more of just your ‘white trash’ kind of family. And so I have that kind of background, but I always kind of aspired to be something else, and I made a lot of different friends over the years that were passing through.
Tom Petty
Luck? I don’t know anything about luck. I’ve never banked on it and I’m afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: Hard work – and realizing what is opportunity and what isn’t.
Lucille Ball
We all consume Netflix and other streaming services in different ways. Sometimes, it’s a movie you’re really going to focus on; other times, it’s background noise to something else, where you won’t really pay attention.
Ben Domenech
In each city there are different favorites. Whatever we do, we’ll come off the stage and somebody will ask how come we didn’t do ‘Pearl Necklace.’ At the next town, it’s something else we didn’t do that they wanted to hear.
Dusty Hill
Sometimes I think I’m real predictable to myself and other times… you always wonder, Is this really what I wanted to do? Did I make a mistake? Should I be doing something else?
Tom Berenger
The idea of designing something that is like something else is incredibly uninteresting and boring.
Yves Behar
People used to say everyone knows someone who’s had breast cancer. In the past few weeks, I’ve learned something else: Everyone has someone close to them who has had breast cancer.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Science would lead you to a more interesting life than something else.
Gregory Benford
You’d be surprised. Drummers ape each other. The way every rock n’ roll record sounds like something else but not all together. Everything other drummers play, if you’re playing drums, they all hear.
Miles Davis
Being a female guitar player back in school wasn’t great, and I had to change schools so many times. The male drummers and bass players thought it was cool, but male guitar players said, ‘It’s a guy’s thing. You should be doing something else, like playing the harp.’
Orianthi
If you fail doing one thing, then learn the lesson and move on and find something else.
Robert Green
You come to our stadium and look at the aura of 100,000 people. You look up there and see an Army tank coming at you. You see it on a TV screen, it’s one thing. You see it at a movie theater, that’s something else. When that thing’s coming at you 70 feet high and 180 feet long, now that looks like a tank.
Jerry Jones
That’s the insecurity with our job, because you never know where the next role is coming from. No matter how successful you are, there’s always a fear of someone not wanting me to play something else.
Suranne Jones
I had so much out there, the world was going crazy about ‘Comes Alive!’ I didn’t need to go and rush into something else. You’re only as good as your last record, so don’t put one out for a while.
Peter Frampton
I’m a big fan of ‘Glee.’ I think it’s really smart. And I think it’s well-timed. But you can’t not be surprised at the reception this show’s received. It’s really something else.
Cory Monteith
Yeah, exactly, you can talk about politics in music, you can talk about something else, but that’s always going to change, and love is never going to change.
Enrique Iglesias
I begin with an idea and then it becomes something else.
Pablo Picasso
Basically, hitters fall into a pattern, and once you know what they like, you can set them up for the putout with something else.
Tom Seaver
I haven't done much press for many reasons, but mostly

I haven’t done much press for many reasons, but mostly because it’s not an interesting dialogue about work that’s been done. It’s turned into something else. It’s become this ridiculous other thing.
Frances McDormand
Presidential campaigns are exhausting. Once they’re over, we all heave a sigh of relief that we have our lives back, the constant emails and news reports no longer harangue us, and the topic even turns at times to something else entirely.
Marianne Williamson
I’ll often get obsessed with something for about three days, and I’ll be utterly into it, and I’ll read every single thing about it possible. And then three days later, I’ll just forget about it, and I’ll be onto something else.
Ed Gamble
I would be trying to play hockey with my friends, but most of the time, the coach put me on the bench. Because I was too dreamy – I was dreaming all of the time. I was super bad on the ice because I was just thinking about something else.
Denis Villeneuve
Final pairing on Sunday in a PGA Tour event? If you can’t get up for that, you better find something else to do.
Graham DeLaet
In India, we say one thing, and we do something else.
Raghuram Rajan
Even a beautiful piece of work can be overshadowed, destroyed, by something else.
I. M. Pei
It is not easy to go away and come back. One year out of MMA is like five years out of MMA. When you leave and go do something else, like pro wrestling, you’re so far behind the times.
Ken Shamrock
We found what we could at that time – the truth. If somebody else can find something else which we didn’t find, that, of course, is a duty on their part, as is the truth. It will be the truth.
John Sherman Cooper
My real thinking and planning gets done when I’m doing something else like driving or walking or taking the shower.
Liane Moriarty
Timbaland’s so wishy-washy sometimes – he’ll hate a song at first and then love it, and then maybe go back to not liking it as much as something else.
Keri Hilson
An upbeat song, for example, means one thing, but when you hear it with really vibey, mellow ambience around it, suddenly the same words may mean something else. Music is so powerful that way: It dictates and soundtracks our moods.
Lights
A house is not a machine! It’s something else for living – but not a machine.
Moshe Safdie
You may not enjoy loneliness, because loneliness is sad. But solitude is something else; solitude is what you look forward to when you want to be alone, when you want to be with yourself. So, solitude is something we all need from time to time.
Ruskin Bond
Just remember that if you’ve lost something, you will be open to something else.
Paolo Nutini
I still think I’m going to do something else when I grow up.
Ron Silver
Although for some people cinema means something superficial and glamorous, it is something else. I think it is the mirror of the world.
Jeanne Moreau
Andy was not a hippie or rebel but more like a mischievous child. He was never out to destroy everything. He became a New Yorker, and New Yorkers know, like the media, what’s going on around them is a fashion thing that will change to something else.
Paul Morrissey
Honestly, I don’t recommend anyone get into music. If you have something else that you’re good at, do that instead. This is a really tough world to live in.
Skylar Grey
I think it’s no coincidence that people who are good at writing far-out fiction are also good at meta-fiction. Think of all the best Phillip K. Dick stories, where you experience a sort of dislocation, and suddenly what you think you’ve been reading is, in fact, something else entirely.
Paul Park
I certainly hope my music is in no way, shape or form influenced by anything that would be known as a jam band. If it is, then I’m going to do something else.
Charlie Hunter
The decision for me was whether to have ‘The Father’ be a book that told a story – from the point of view of this speaker, the daughter – without, as in the earlier books, then having a section on something else and a section on something else.
Sharon Olds
Common would come to my house and give me a freestyle verse. I’d make a new beat for it and put it with something else. That’s how I met Eminem – he came to my house back when he first started. He gave me a bunch of freestyles, and that’s how we built a relationship. Everyone came to my house.
Clinton Sparks
I think that’s what a lot of writers do, create a totally fantastical scenario that is a reflection of something else going on in their life.
Matt Bellamy
You see somebody on a football field make a great, athletic 70-yard run, but the athleticism is immeasurable. It’s undoubtedly athletic, but compared to somebody else who did something else, how do you compare it? That’s the great part of track and field. It’s a test, but with results that you can compare to others.
Ashton Eaton
I realize that some folks might not believe me in this – I didn’t run for Congress on the hopes that one day you’re going to run for something else.
Joe Kennedy III
What happens with a lot of leaders is that their leadership style is like ADD; they are all over the place with different ideas. They could be driving one idea forward but then move on to something else too soon.
Henry Cloud
I see a lot of women of every age trying to be something else. I see them trying to imitate behaviors that they think belong to successful people.
Anne Sweeney
Golf is such a big commitment, and so is acting. Sometimes you have to give up something to do something else, although, when I’m working on location, I always take my clubs.
Kathryn Newton
I think some people can’t understand why you wouldn’t want kids but I can’t see any advantages at all. We’re overpopulated as it is. Plus, I hate thinking the only reason I’m here is to pop out a kid or two. I’d rather leave something else behind.
Diane Morgan
If poverty persists in America, it is not for lack of resources. We lack something else.
Matthew Desmond
Everything is always coming from something else. Even i

Everything is always coming from something else. Even if you create something, it has to be inspired by something else. If you think of Apple and Steve Jobs, he had to be inspired by something that launched the ideas in his head.
Gza
When I started acting, everyone told me to get a backup in case it didn’t work out; if there was something else I could have done, I would have done it. Acting should never be your chosen path if you can help it.
Oliver Jackson-Cohen
There were many times during our career when he could’ve quit and done something else. But he knew that his power was with the Grateful Dead. He didn’t want to go solo. Jerry was a groupist. He loved to group.
Mickey Hart
My first trimester I was so exhausted. I could sleep 10 hours, then wake up, look in the mirror and still have eyes like a hound dog! I felt like the life was sucked out of me, no matter how much sleep I got. It was obvious that my body was really busy doing something else and ‘beauty sleep’ didn’t exist anymore!
Marisa Miller
When I’m working on a novel of my own, I try to read mostly nonfiction, although sometimes I break down and peek at something else.
Carl Hiaasen
Maybe I’ll paint, do photography, just something else. I can see that.
Steven Soderbergh
There was a time when I was practicing law in New York and I wanted to find something else to do. So I ended up leaving the practice of law to pursue my art and it just happened to be out of Lego bricks.
Nathan Sawaya
I told myself I’d stay in until I reached major, and then go on and do something else.
Russel Honore
Everybody right now, they look at the current technology, and they think, ‘OK, that’s what artificial neural nets are.’ And they don’t realize how arbitrary it is. We just made it up! And there’s no reason why we shouldn’t make up something else.
Geoffrey Hinton
To be an actor, it’s really tough to find your own voice because you’re always tied to other characters and going to auditions and trying to get a job, hoping they’ll pick you. And I think it’s just so important for an actor to have something else that’s creative, something that’s creative and you’re in charge of.
Gavin Creel
Comedy has allowed me to be my 100-percent-true self, as opposed to other places, where I feel like that’s been a hindrance. Whether it’s music or poetry or hosting, people want you to be something else: they want you to be packaged in a certain way.
Amanda Seales
I understand being alone. I understand not liking it, wishing for something else.
Richard Jenkins
But nothing in India is identifiable, the mere asking of a question causes it to disappear or to merge in something else.
E. M. Forster
I’ve always had this unresolved desire to prove that I could get a Ph.D., or contribute something else to the world.
Diane Lane
Experience is what you get while looking for something else.
Federico Fellini
Every thought and word that a novelist thinks or writes is part of that castle constructed from sands on the beach of Me, including the turret or rampart or moat he may have thought or written on behalf of someone or something else.
Steve Erickson
Retiring is one thing. Being retired is something else altogether.
Mike Wallace
There are certain expectations placed on writers if other people have put a value on their gender. I’m aware of the hundreds of tiny differences that happen when people are seeing your gender before they see something else.
Laeta Kalogridis
If we continue to tolerate this level of poverty in our cities, and go along with eviction as commonplace in poor neighborhoods, it’s not for a lack of resources. It will be a lack of something else.
Matthew Desmond
States seem to have a natural life cycle, and anything can occur to change them into something else, and that something might be no bad thing.
Norman Davies
If you join government, calmly make your contribution and move on. Don’t go along to get along; do your best and when you have to – and you will – leave, and be something else.
Peggy Noonan
Oxford also taught me something else – it taught me scepticism.
Frank Scott
I tend to navigate by indirection, meaning that most of the major things in my life have happened when I’ve been thinking about something else.
Lauren Willig
A lot of people think, ‘I’ll give acting or poetry or filmmaking a try. And if it doesn’t work out I’ll go get a law degree, do something else that’s more practical.’ For me I went the reverse way. I lived the back-up plan.
Brit Marling
I do give myself a break in my personal life but I think in work, if you don’t push yourself you get bored and want to do something else.
Diane Kruger
When I started playing basketball, they always would have me at the block, and I’m like, ‘Yo, I don’t want to play down here. I want to do something else.’ This is not entertaining to me, and whatever the guards do, I wanted to do.
Deandre Ayton
Many other countries in the region also have money and oil, but they haven’t done much good with it – at least not enough to stop the Middle East’s disastrous wars. Saudi Arabia at least has something else: stability, a scarce commodity in the region.
Jamal Khashoggi
If I’ve made something really serene… well, if everything is like that, it’s like having too much icing on your cake. You need something else under it, some kind of grounding. It’s like if you’re making a film, you can’t have only happy moments, or else they become meaningless.
Jon Hopkins
But I think it shortsells any idea when you say there’s a similar part to something else, like ‘aw man, ‘The Avengers’ is ripping off ‘Batman.’ You’ve got people running around in outfits.’ Of course, there are outfitted people and there’s superhero stuff, but it’s not just ripping off ‘Batman.’
Cory Barlog
Everywhere I went, people would tell me that trap and reggaeton was for men, not women. I wasn’t being taken seriously, and I was often being told to do something else.
Karol G
I never intended to go into the family business. I’ve always been drawn to wanting to do something else at some time in my life.
Christie Hefner
I'd love to just continue making original films from sc

I’d love to just continue making original films from scratch, but it doesn’t mean I won’t try my hand at something else in the meantime.
Jeff Nichols
I’ve always been very ambitious, and I always knew that I wanted something else. Cuba was a good start, but I knew I wasn’t going to develop a real career, and I wanted to get closer to filmmakers that I wanted to work with.
Ana de Armas
Eight o’clock is hard no matter what network you’re on because people have to make a decision to sit down and start watching TV. Every other time slot is a time slot that happens after someone’s watching something else.
Dan Harmon
The worst evil is – and that’s the product of censorship – is the self-censorship, because that twists spines, that destroys my character because I have to think something else and say something else, I have to always control myself.
Milos Forman
As soon as one project is finished I like to go straight on to something else.
Marc Almond
One has a responsibility to clean up one’s space and make it livable as far as one’s own resources go. That includes not only material resources, but psychological resources: the commitment of time and a portion of your mind to something when you’d rather be doing something else.
Wole Soyinka
You have to live in order to have something to write about – you get caught up in moviemaking and celebrities and money, and it’s very intoxicating, but it doesn’t give you what you need as a writer. You have to do something else for that.
John Patrick Shanley
You know, Kiss can always go on as long as Gene and Paul want it to go on. Static-X is the same way. We’re the two founding guys and the two vocalists and the driving force of the band. We can go on as long as we want, as long as the two of us are together. If I ever lost Tony, I’m sure I’d start something else.
Wayne Static
People who care about records are always giving me a hard time. I mean, I would destroy records in performances, and break them, and whatever I could do to them to create a sound that was something else than just the sound that was in the groove.
Christian Marclay
I wanted to do another movie that could make us laugh and cry and feel good about the world. I wanted to do something else that could make us smile. This is a time when we need to smile more and Hollywood movies are supposed to do that for people in difficult times.
Steven Spielberg
He tried to convince me. He spoke to me: ‘You have to play for Belgium.’ He came to talk to me, he’s always talking to me. I told him ‘it’s difficult, Lukaku, can’t do it, it’s not the same. Playing for Belgium is something else. Playing for Selecao… It’s Brazil, I feel at home.’
Andreas Pereira
Even if you can be the world’s best at one thing, you’ll be the world’s worst at something else. Supermodels make pathetic sumo wrestlers.
Martha Beck
Everyone in L.A. talks about getting an agent or a manager in terms of getting on a sitcom or getting on a movie or doing something else.
Ari Shaffir
One of the things that always disappointed me as a kid, growing up, was when you could tell the singer had a fancy for something different and turned the band into something else.
Andy Biersack
The pollution problem is always seen as someone who was doing something bad that has to be stopped. To me, pollution is doing something bad and good. People don’t pollute because they like polluting. They do it because it’s a cheaper way of producing something else.
Ronald Coase
Paris. Toulouse. Malmo. Copenhagen. Brussels. Berlin. For most people, they are lovely cities where you might happily take a holiday. But for the world’s Jews, they are something else, too. They are place names of hate.
Bari Weiss
I’m always constantly doing something else.
EJ Johnson
Writing an adaptation is not so much a collaboration as it is a series of steps. You’re basically creating a blueprint for something else.
Susan Minot
My father was and is a great journalist. Thirty years ago, I was studying broadcasting in college, and the problem was I wasn’t nearly as good as my father. I wasn’t as quick or as smart as my old man, and I realized it would be a long time before I was ever going to be, and I decided to do something else.
George Clooney
We get done with the game, and it’s an absolute downpour 30 minutes later. That’s when I thought God was telling me that’s enough-time for you to go do something else.
John Elway
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.
Lance Armstrong
I’m glad about what’s happening to the music business. This last crop of people we had in the 90s, who are going away now, they didn’t like music. They didn’t trust musicians. They wanted something else from it.
James Taylor
Television is on a small screen, inside someone’s living room, so you have to grab their attention while they are having dinner or cooking or doing something else.
Sonali Bendre
If you’re in this business and you are scared, then you better do something else.
Karl Lagerfeld
If you want to be an actor and you love acting, you can do it whether you’re doing something else or not. You can be connected with community theater or make your own little movies. But if you want to be a movie star, you’ve got a tough road ahead of you.
Alan Arkin
I had a bunch of paintings around at my house, and someone said to me, ‘Why don’t you just put them on Instagram? Why don’t you show people these?’ And I didn’t want to – it was just something else I would have to do. But eventually, I was like, ‘What’s the harm?’ And the response was so insane!
Alison Mosshart
I didn’t read so much Japanese literature. Because my father was a teacher of Japanese literature, I just wanted to do something else.
Haruki Murakami
If I walk up to a can of Red Bull, I’m thinking about Formula One; I’m thinking about incredible athletic performances. And it helps me choose that can over something else to either side of it.
Nick Woodman
Sometimes you can’t write a novel for weeks and weeks, but it’s good for your self-esteem to work on something else.
Sheila Heti
You will never succeed while smarting under the drudgery of your occupation, if you are constantly haunted with the idea that you could succeed better in something else.
Orison Swett Marden
The beauty of Toronto is that it has not been shot a lot in movies, for itself at least. I mean, most of the time, Toronto is shot to portray something else.
Denis Villeneuve
I write at home. I like to be able to take a nap, watch

I write at home. I like to be able to take a nap, watch TV, make a sandwich, and if I wake up and don’t feel like working, I’m not going to bang my head on my desk all day: I’ll go out and do something else.
Colson Whitehead
I love to play chess. The last time I was playing, I started to really see the board. I don’t mean just seeing a few moves ahead – something else. My game started getting better. It’s the patterns. The patterns are universal.
Forest Whitaker
It is not real work unless you would rather be doing something else.
James M. Barrie
For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
There’s real peril in trying to repeat yourself, and apply rules that applied to something else to a new project.
Mitchell Hurwitz
Everything in my life has been a stepping-stone to something else.
Stacy Keibler
True terrorism, you know, weaponized fear. In defense of ourselves, we’re fighting – actively fighting something else. But if you’re going to fight terrorism, to me, you fight the root causes of terrorism.
Lupe Fiasco
I think a movie is a great date idea for younger couples. It takes the pressure off, since something else is entertaining you. It’s also good for couples in a very comfortable relationship.
Chris Carmack
In life, people talk at right angles. One asks a question, and the other replies in part, then uses that part to move the conversation to something else. Everyone has an agenda, has something they’re trying to say – or not say.
Jesse Ball
It seems like music gets put in this hub where you have to rap about this, and the minute you do something else, it’s like you changing. Nah, I’m being creative.
Big K.R.I.T.
There’s a high point in your career, and then people get bored; they want something else to come along.
Peter Temple
I’ve been talking to certain wrestlers on the phone lately, and certain female wrestlers that were huge stars ten years ago, and the first thing I ask them is ‘do you still want to work?’ Do they want to talk, or do they want to wrestle or do something else in the business?
Hulk Hogan
I’d love to do something else for Avatar after this.
Mark Millar
People at the top spend less money than those at the bottom, so when you have redistribution toward the top, aggregate demand goes down. Unless you intervene, you’re going to have a weak economy unless something else happens.
Joseph Stiglitz
When you get told that you have a disease, it’s like: ‘Really? Nah, it’s all right. I don’t believe that. It must be something else, I’m just making an excuse, let me push harder.’
Venus Williams
But I find the best things I do, I do when I’m trying to avoid doing something else I’m supposed to be doing. You know, you’re working on something. You get bugged, or you lose your enthusiasm or something. So you turn to something else with an absolute vengeance.
Norton Juster
Foucault is one of many who want a new conception of how power and knowledge interact. But he is not looking for a relation between two givens, ‘power’ and ‘knowledge.’ As always, he is trying to rethink the entire subject matter, and his ‘knowledge’ and ‘power’ are to be something else.
Ian Hacking
I thought I wanted to be a brain surgeon until I realized all the schooling it required. I didn’t like school very much so I had to come up with something else.
Lexa Doig
I have a strong sense of responsibility. I like to be directed, it’s true. If I didn’t like that, I’d do something else.
Catherine Deneuve
I’ve been really aware of how important it is to me to just stay in the moment and enjoy it while it lasts. Because that’s all you’ve got. If it ends, I’ll move on to doing something else. If it lasts, great.
Marketa Irglova
I didn’t make music videos in order to make a movie. Music videos were the goal for me, so it was never a step to something else. I approached it seriously.
Anton Corbijn
By the time you get what you always wanted, you want something else.
Logic
Most travel disasters turn into something else: a story of survival, a story of bravery, of heroism, sometimes villainy. You just don’t know when it starts where it’s going to go because they are unexpected events.
Mitchell Zuckoff
I listen to podcasts when I run because it means my mind still gets stimulated by something else.
Jack Garratt
I’ve always felt, and I think I’m qualified to say so because I’ve won a few awards, that it’s a terrible shame to put something in competition with something else to be able to sell something.
John Hurt
I know a lot of people at some point in their business careers decide they’ll just cash in and do something else, but for some reason, I’ve never had that feeling.
Fred DeLuca
I saw everyone else as ‘normal’ and myself as messed up in a way. And all of that made me so angry. Stealing allowed me to take my anger out on something else.
Gigi Gorgeous
You base your actions on a projected ending, which you actually don’t know. However, when you reach the crucial point, and the pinnacle event doesn’t occur, you just need to go on, and something else will happen.
Elif Batuman
In a play, you dictate pace, you dictate rhythm, you dictate when people look at you, when people should be looking at something else. In film, the editor does that.
Oscar Isaac
Reading a Lydia Davis story collection is like reaching into what you think is a bag of potato chips and pulling out something else entirely: a gherkin, a pepper corn, a truffle, a piece of beef jerky.
Kate Christensen
There was never anything I wanted to do more than play tennis. Never once walked out there and thought, ‘I wish I was doing something else.’ Not once.
Jimmy Connors
That's the great part about arts - someone taking your

That’s the great part about arts – someone taking your work and making it something else; it’s becomes a true collaboration.
Tim Minchin
My dad’s whole family is in Madras and I was born in America so we didn’t have that big Indian community. I don’t really have anything interesting to say about it. When I talk about it people are like, ‘meh, let’s talk about something else.’
Mindy Kaling
We all want something else other than what we have and don’t realize what you got works. It works. It does work. You gotta work. Marriage is work. Marriage is a career. It’s not an adventure.
Sinbad
Nobody in this country goes around saying: ‘I’m feeling very oppressed by the E.U.’ Well, one or two people do, but they’re a bit odd. Ultimately, if they’re getting oppressed by the E.U., they’re going to start to feel oppressed by something else and just switch to a new subject of oppression.
Dominic Grieve
Any man who takes a job with the idea that it is simply a springboard for something else is a chump. His attention will be more on the other things than on the job at hand and so he will fail.
Charles Edison
I’d have been a filmmaker or a cartoonist or something else which extended from the visual arts into the making of narratives if I hadn’t been able to shift into fiction.
Jonathan Lethem
I’m old enough, by a long shot, to remember going to the library and spending days researching. If I was looking for a line from a poem or something else I needed, that would be the trip I would have to take.
Charlie Kaufman
A good listener is usually thinking about something else.
Kin Hubbard
I love acting, but being an actor for hire only serves so much, and then you want to fill your well up again and be charged by something else.
Jennifer Aniston
Everybody thinks if you do one thing, you can’t do something else. So I like the fact that I can be versatile if I want to.
Denise Van Outen
Don’t think you are going to go on forever because you are not and begin to plan something that will compensate as you reduce your capacities to leap or turn on this or that or the other, begin thinking of something else.
Katherine Dunham
Being funny is a symptom of what’s underneath. You’re pumping out all that energy because something else is going on inside you, some opposing force, something uncomfortable.
Faith Prince
I want people – especially young girls – to know that in life, nothing is going to be based on sex appeal. You’ve got to have something else to go with that.
Nicki Minaj
I think the most frustrating thing is when people… sometimes people are a bit lazy and they don’t listen to something, and they’ll just say you sound like something else and it’s quite clear that you don’t, I think that’s frustrating.
Ben Howard
I think that for the actors, the last thing that they want is a director that’s not watching, a director that goes ‘Okay, it sounded good to me,’ and they were doing something else or preoccupied with something else because they were worried about the light changing.
Gus Van Sant
For me, a holiday is doing something else apart from what I normally do.
Milind Soman
If you try to multitask in the classic sense of doing two things at once, what you end up doing is quasi-tasking. It’s like being with children. You have to give it your full attention for however much time you have, and then you have to give something else your full attention.
Joss Whedon
I don’t want to be normal. I want to be something else.
Ben Casnocha
I truly, truly believe that I was going in that direction and all of a sudden fate took me and put me here. It’s like something else has other plans for me.
Christopher Atkins
You got to make the most of your second life. I was born Nayvadius, but now I’m Future. Should I dwell on what Nayvadius was supposed to be? I get a chance to experience life as something else. I wasn’t supposed to be like this.
Future
If we are suffering illness, poverty, or misfortune, we think we shall be satisfied on the day it ceases. But there too, we know it is false; so soon as one has got used to not suffering one wants something else.
Simone Weil
I’m either going to have the career I want doing films, or I’ll do something else – I’ll be gone.
Matthew Fox
Weirdly, the past starts to be about something else. It becomes about style in a way that it wasn’t about, and I don’t mean writing style, but cultural style.
Eileen Myles
I feel like fashion is about being innovative and being able to turn something into something else, making it cool, and making it your own.
Kali Uchis
I defend my position. I am not Messi. I am not Ronaldo. I have something else. I am not the quickest, like Walcott. I have to be clever and read situations. If I didn’t have that, I wouldn’t be able to play Premier League. Everybody has a strength – this is mine.
Toby Alderweireld
It takes a lot of energy and a lot of neurosis to write a novel. If you were really sensible, you’d do something else.
Lawrence Durrell
The thing is I really struggle with commitments, so committing myself to six months to a year in a soap opera… I don’t think it would suit my lifestyle. A few days working on a project is enough for me, and then I get bored and am ready to move on and do something else.
Kelly Brook
If you don’t like something, talk about something else that’s great and maybe someone else will discover it and think it’s great too.
Elizabeth Olsen
I think a lot of actors, sometimes what happens I think is that actors finish a movie and they go, ‘Oh my god, I’m never going to work again,’ even big huge actors, and so they’ll take something thinking that something else will never come along.
Jonah Hill
I’m just glad that I’m the musical equivalent of a character actress, because blues singers can keep singing and having an audience at 35, and someone like Madonna’s gonna have to find something else to do, ‘cos I don’t care how pointy those bras are that she wears, they’re still gonna look a little odd when she’s 55!
Bonnie Raitt
Each child brings so much joy and hope into the world, and that is reason enough for being here. As you grow older, you will contribute something else to this world, and only you can discover what that is.
Sharon Creech
Everybody asks me, 'Lee when did you know it was time t

Everybody asks me, ‘Lee when did you know it was time to retire?’ I said, ‘when they quit asking me to coach.’ After the Orlando Renegades, not many people were busting down my doors to coach, so why not do something else.
Lee Corso
I think that at one moment you’re apt for one thing, and at the next moment you’re apt for something else.
Concha Buika
Disruption is a process, not an event, and innovations can only be disruptive relative to something else.
Clayton M. Christensen
I think the universe is just so big that there has to be something else out there.
Alexander Ludwig
Since the beginning, I have always tried to just be me. There have been moments in my career as a YouTuber where I’ve recognized that I’m trying to emulate something else, or I’m being heavily influenced by a YouTuber or something like that, and I realize that’s not what I want to be putting out.
Tyler Oakley
I have made bouquets of pleats, bouquets of flowers, bouquets of ruffles, bouquets of feathers. Often I design in mousseline, held tightly around the waist, and with something else going on all around.
Giambattista Valli
To be the first British athlete to win a gold is amazing, but to win it in the U.K. is something else. Also, having my family here with me has made it extra special, and I know all my friends back home have been cheering me on and putting posters in their windows. I want to thank them all.
Jade Jones
It seems that every time I stick my neck out, I get my foot into something else.
Patsy Cline
Now as far as the organization selling drugs, no. Individuals selling drugs is something else.
Chuck Zito
If you write a book that’s as powerful and successful as ‘Bastard,’ there’s a strong desire to prove there’s something else.
Dorothy Allison
You see something, then it clicks with something else, and it will make a story. But you never know when it’s going to happen.
Stephen King
Whatever comes my way, I appreciate and do my best at, and if it were to fade someday, I guess I would find something else. But I just don’t plan the future, I guess.
Leah Pipes
I used to draw a lot. If my mother would ask me to do something else, I’d have a hairy conniption. I’d just go crazy.
Jim Carrey
The audience wants to hear ‘Rock n’ Me,’ ‘Space Cowboy,’ ‘Living in the U.S.A.’ When you start to play something else, you can feel the interest and enthusiasm go; the steam goes out of room. They are really ‘Greatest Hits’ fans and that’s what they want to hear. It’s disappointing that it’s this way in the U.S.
Steve Miller
I’ve played a ghost, cat, snake. I’ve been funny, sad. I’ve been filmed flying on screen. So why not spend time on something else? I don’t need to accept everything I’m offered.
Maggie Cheung
I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t want to do a TV show or movie, but life comes first, and then there’s business. If this business doesn’t allow me to have my life, then I’ll do something else and be a happier man.
Gavin Creel
I think politicians nationwide have earned a reputation sometimes that is very unfavorable because they will say things and then do something else when they get into office.
Susana Martinez
I feel bound to respect Ronald Reagan, as every American should – not least because he chose a career of public service when he could have made a lot more money doing something else, and not least because he took genuine risks for peace.
Rick Perlstein
I’m such a magpie. I’ll get halfway through one thing and pick up something else. I always have 5 or 6 books open and spine-up by my bed: it’s like a row of tents. I don’t finish nearly as many books as I should.
Steven Hall
I read till I fall asleep. Daytime actually I feel guilty reading – I always feel I should be doing something else!
Rajkumar Hirani
The sound of ‘Take Her Up to Monto’ and ‘Hairless Toys’ is the sound of me and the producer in the studio doing whatever we like. There is no reference. It’s too easy to be referential now; I’m trying to find something else.
Roisin Murphy
When I came in at United, I’d seen what the manager set, how the players lived their lives, how they trained, how they lived with the expectation and all sorts, playing three games a week at that level. And that is when I thought ‘woah – this is different, this is something else.’
Michael Carrick
We all agree now – by ‘we’ I mean intelligent people under sixty – that a work of art is like a rose. A rose is not beautiful because it is like something else. Neither is a work of art. Roses and works of art are beautiful in themselves.
Clive Bell
Prior to the App Store, the chances of that happening, of somebody really young forming a company and in a period of no time really becoming a global provider of a game or something else, it really didn’t happen. Now there are these success stories popping up everywhere.
Tim Cook
I had the idea to spend the year off in 2008 and start writing a rock album. I wanted to do something else other than melodic metal after more than ten years of After Forever. I thought it would be nice to sidestep into rock.
Floor Jansen
The language can be different, but the emotional lives are the same no matter whether you’re doing Shakespeare or Stoppard or something else… The emotional life is all the same.
Ari Graynor
It doesn’t matter what I’m doing – I wish it was something else. If I’m producing, I wish I was directing. If I’m directing, I wish I was doing almost anything else!
Sydney Pollack
When I finish a book, I always fear that I’ll never write again. It takes a lot of time. You always think if you could just do something else – but nothing else makes me as happy.
Claire Messud
I’m always polite in auditions, but I wasn’t like, ‘Oh, please give me the job,’ for ‘Robin Hood’ because I didn’t think I’d get it. I got told about the audition just a few days before I went to India to film something else. I must have been a bit cocky with it.
Jonas Armstrong
My taste changes radically all the time, and I listen to whatever feels good. Another thing is that I’m in the studio so much of the time, and I listen to so much loud, aggressive music for work, that for pleasure, I’ll listen to something else.
Rick Rubin
I know what it’s like to access the privilege of a ZIP Code but also be born in one that could have destined me to something else.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
The great thing about jamming is that you come in with

The great thing about jamming is that you come in with zero preconceptions. Someone might want to play something that suggests something else to you, and the next thing you know you’re on a 20-minute adventure.
Chris Thile
Al Green is something else.
Nicky Jam
If hip-hop is dead, then let it rest in peace and let’s move on to something else.
Black Thought
For purposes of marketing, writers are designated as poets, novelists, or something else. But writing is about matchmaking, an attempt to marry sensations with apt words.
Teju Cole
Many people know that Ethiopia is poor. When I break a world record, maybe people get to know something else about Ethiopia, something good. We can’t make planes or cars, we don’t have the materials. We do what we can.
Haile Gebrselassie
I sort of leave the character at the end of the day. I don’t carry anything around with me – no excess baggage or unnecessary thoughts. I think it’s too exhausting to do that. To put things into perspective – your work is your work, and your leisure time is something else.
Sean Bean
I can create clothes for so many different time periods. I’ve always tried to avoid being pigeonholed. Plus, everything I learn about design and costume from one movie somehow works its way into something else.
Colleen Atwood
And it’s one thing to give people freedom and something else to deny the rights of Christians to assert their faith in order to keep Hindus from feeling upset.
Pat Robertson
To be offended is a choice we make; it is not a condition inflicted or imposed upon us by someone or something else.
David A. Bednar
I achieved what I want to achieve and I want to continue doing something else.
Marat Safin
I don’t see myself in politics at 51. I definitely want to do something else.
Leo Varadkar
As a sports person, you are always aware that at some point your career is coming to an end and you have to do something else. I always knew it had to end one day, and I was very determined to make sure I wasn’t going to be known as an ex-racing driver.
Susie Wolff
In so far as I have any beliefs, I suppose I’m like that old Peggy Lee song, ‘Is That All There Is?’ I want to believe there’s something else going on, but what that something else is I don’t pretend to know.
Peter Ackroyd
I feel like everything is inspired by something else. There is no 100 percent original thought.
Ne-Yo
I think you can have moderate success by copying something else, but if you really want to knock it out of the park, you have to do something different and take chances.
Lee Ann Womack
When I left high school – I was younger than my classmates, just 17 – I knew I wanted to be an actress, but I thought, ‘When I go to college, I’d rather study something else.’
Glenne Headly
We stress out over things we can’t control. So if something is a stressor, you can just simply take the power away from it by focusing on something else.
Christen Press
Part of me, even when I was trying to get acting jobs, I was still kind of thinking, ‘Oh I should do something else with my life.’
Hong Chau
I had kind of left college. I wanted to study to be a sports teacher, but I had that little inner voice within me that said, ‘You should be doing something else,’ and I followed that gut instinct.
Alesha Dixon
Rare is the human being, immature or mature, who has never felt an impulse to pretend he is some one or something else.
George Pierce Baker
We believed that there’s no such thing as good art or bad art. Art is art. If it’s bad, it’s something else. It was a much, much harder line in the ’50s and ’60s than it is now, because the idea of art education didn’t exist – they didn’t have a fine arts program when I was a kid.
Billy Al Bengston
I am an Obamacare agnostic – if it works, as I hope it will for the good of the nation, then it’s a great thing. If it doesn’t, then that is a disappointing thing, and we need to try something else.
Kurt Eichenwald
Because I’m pretty, everybody thinks I’m stupid. But it is like a mask, and you have to break the mask to show that there is something else behind it. You have to show who you are to make the others come to discover you.
Monica Bellucci
Once I accomplish one thing and I’m satisfied, I try something else. I may be 50 and doing something totally outside of music and acting. Maybe I’ll become a kindergarten teacher.
Kid Cudi
I’ve worked in television long enough to know that when you stop enjoying that type of thing you go home and do something else.
Mark Haddon
There had to be something else out there that would help me change. I wanted to live.
John Sweeney
GSP, that little syrup sucker, he can come get this. He thinks he’s the greatest welterweight of all time. I have something else to say about that. I’ll destroy him.
Colby Covington
Hollywood is something else. It’s such an exaggerated idea. The concept of what ‘beautiful’ really is is ludicrous.
Amanda Schull
Without audiences, artists would be doing something else, and their creative and technical skills would fall on absent eyes.
Ryan Kavanaugh
I was preparing myself for the theater, and… I got a little job here and a job there, but it wasn’t going well, and I considered some time before the mid-60s that maybe I should consider something else.
James Earl Jones
Branding says a lot about luxury and about exclusion and about the choices that manufacturers make, but I think that what society does with it after it’s produced is something else. And the African-American community has always been expert at taking things and repurposing them toward their own ends.
Kehinde Wiley
But we will say something else. That for far too long i

But we will say something else. That for far too long in this country, people who can work, people who are able to work, and people who choose not to work: you cannot go on claiming welfare like you are now.
David Cameron
I cannot lead you into battle. I do not give you laws or administer justice but I can do something else – I can give my heart and my devotion to these old islands and to all the peoples of our brotherhood of nations.
Queen Elizabeth II
I’m unable to do the thing that Broadway actors do in plays, sometimes for years. The same exact blocking, the same exact lines. I’m a little bit uncomfortable with that. Every night I’m looking for ways to try something else.
Mike Birbiglia
Women come to a time in their lives where they raise their kids, they’ve had their careers, their kids leave home, and they’re deciding, ‘Am I recommitting to my relationship? It’s been a great ride. Do I want to stay here? Maybe there’s something else.’
Gabrielle Carteris
As my guitar playing dwindled, something else in my music got better.
Jason Becker
If a man is going to be an American at all let him be so without any qualifying adjectives, and if he is going to be something else, let him drop the word American from his personal description.
Henry Cabot Lodge
I don’t know why I started writing. I don’t know why anybody does it. Maybe they’re bored, or failures at something else.
Cormac McCarthy
When you do make losses, or you have businesses that don’t succeed, it’s about knowing when to stop and do something else.
Peter Jones
Kids definitely go into bookstores after reading ‘Twilight’ and want something else like it.
P. C. Cast
Over the years, many young actors have approached me: Vusi Kunene, Sello Maake ka Ncube, and Seputla Sebogodi. They all said, ‘Hey Bra John, let’s do ‘The Island and we want you to direct.’ But somehow, my heart was not in it or I was busy with something else, so I’d say, ‘ja, ja, we’ll do it.’
John Kani
When you play a lot of games in a row, and you come off the pitch thinking, ‘I can’t do this no more,’ then it is time to look at something else, whether you have six months left on your contract or four years.
Gareth Barry
You have to force yourself to give up and to move onto something else. That’s the way you grow as a writer, by trying new things and tackling new subjects. But it’s difficult. There’s part of you that doesn’t want to give up because you realize that, in some way, you’re surrendering.
Karl Iagnemma
So few people vote these days, and I think it’s partly because they don’t feel like the institution really means anything to them. If you want them to vote, give them opportunities to do something else other than vote, to help.
Jennifer Pahlka
It’s really good to be forced to get away and try something else, find something that’s exciting.
John Scofield
Our guts can really mislead us. Sometimes, what we think of as our gut is something else, like an outside influence. If you’re going to buy an apartment and it smells of freshly baked bread, you’re more likely to want to buy it.
Noreena Hertz
I’ve always considered myself a little more fluid along the spectrum. So even being called bisexual… I remember, in my early twenties, I was like, ‘But bisexual means I can only like girls and guys. What if I like something else?’
Antoni Porowski
So if I think of something in my head I don’t have to do it. If I can’t do I don’t do it, I do something else.
Marian McPartland
I don’t know how anyone can see the Hubble ‘Deep Field’ image and not feel like something else is going about its business out there.
Tracy K. Smith
I can read a newspaper article, and it might trigger something else in my mind. I often like to choose in historical fiction things or subject matter I don’t feel have been given a fair shake in history.
Kathryn Lasky
I think that for the actors, the last thing that they want is a director that’s not watching, a director that goes ‘Okay, it sounded good to me,’ and they were doing something else or preoccupied with something else because they were worried about the light changing.
Gus Van Sant
I have no time for the endless nostalgia: ‘Oh gosh I used to . . . ‘ Life is too short; I don’t have any time for sitting and saying I miss things. What’s the point? Go and do something else.
Kate Adie
If you don’t have trouble paying the rent, you have trouble doing something else; one needs just a certain amount of trouble.
Robert Rauschenberg
I’ll tell you what 20 years teaches you – is that if one thing doesn’t last something else will come down the pipe and to go from that and to do these films now.
Blair Underwood
There’s something else that my mother taught me, public service is about service. And, as her daughter, I’ve had a special window into how she serves. I’ve seen her holding the hands of mothers, worried about how they’ll feed their kids, worried about how they’ll get them the healthcare they need.
Chelsea Clinton
I just want to be in the studio. When you’ve got all the gear you want in your own house, it’s difficult to go out and do something else, you know?
Jeff Lynne
Every black film feels like it’s Tyler Perry, and that just needs to stop. But people seem to slowly be looking for what else is out there – ‘Is there something else besides this type of humor?’ ‘I’m tired of seeing men in dresses.’
Issa Rae
As an athlete, that’s something I always take with me. You fall every day, whether it’s in a job, or you miss something else, but you learn how to do it better next time. You learn it in sports. That’s a life lesson.
Michelle Kwan
But post my victory in Beijing, I actually wanted to quit sport and move on to something else in life.
Abhinav Bindra
You know, my point in being an actor is to get people to believe that this is not about me, but something else.
Jim Caviezel
It’s very refreshing to go away and take a break, to clear your head, and just get into something else.
Francois Nars
My problem is: as a singer and a dancer, if I get it in my body one way, it is harder for me to be open to something new – to something else; to something that is really organically connected to the piece and not just to my perception of it.
Sharon Lawrence
I was trying to create products to complement the pop-u

I was trying to create products to complement the pop-up blocker. All these people were giving me their credit cards. I figured I could sell them something else.
Jon Oringer
It seemed to me that I could write commercial fiction. I wasn’t sure whether I could, or whether I wanted to write serious fiction at that point. So I said, ‘Let me try something else,’ and I wrote a mystery – but I didn’t know much about it.
James Patterson
Like everyone else, I want to go on dancing forever, but I know the day is going to come when I will have to be doing something else.
Karen Kain
Sometimes I feel like both; sometimes I feel like neither. Sometimes I feel like something else completely. Gender-wise, I identify as a non-binary person, which means not male, not female.
Liv Bruce
First off, I absolutely hate the term ‘trip-hop.’ It was a term that made it seemed like I was trying to turn the music into something else. I was always influenced by New York hip-hop, since forever, since I was a kid.
Tricky
When the blues came out, it was something pure and undefined, but when all these white groups got hold of it, it became something else that didn’t sound anything like the original. So you had Led Zeppelin doing their thing, which had come all the way from the blues.
Genesis P-Orridge
I’ve always said I was born in the storm. I just had to find a way out of it, find the clearing, and believe the clouds would blow away and the darkness would become something else.
Aaron Pedersen
I take the sexy girl parts and try to give them something else and make them a character.
Amber Heard
I’ve done a lot of television over the last years, and you know, with some television productions, if you can do with just one take, you can move on and do something else.
Claes Bang
‘Moonlight’ changed me. To see people so moved by this movie inspires me to find something else to offer. And maybe the next one touches only five people or maybe just one person. To me, you know, that would still be worth it.
Barry Jenkins
When you make a movie, it’s just so personal and then you put it out in front of people and it becomes something else.
Jennifer Yuh Nelson
I mean, you know actors, we always want to do something else, something different.
Lance Reddick
I remember when I was in my late teens just getting rid of lots of records, realizing I only ever listened to them when I was reading, or watching TV, or doing something else.
Jonny Greenwood
Saddam spent 35 years stealing and wasting money, and all of these systems are very fragile and brittle, and you try to fix one thing and something else gets in trouble.
Paul Bremer
I think a lot of people miss out on opportunities, they miss out on achieving their dream, and they miss out on doing what they love to do because they’re allowing something else, something outside of them and outside of God, to dictate what their life’s going to look like.
Kurt Warner
For pity’s sake, if you don’t take a shine to a novel, there are loads more in the world; read something else. Continue suffering, and it’s not the author’s fault. It’s yours.
Lionel Shriver
When I heard ‘Jesus, Take the Wheel,’ I was like, OK. Some people look at it as a song written for an American Idol, Carrie Underwood, who is wonderful. But when you’re a songwriter listening to a song, you hear something else. I heard that song, and wow.
Lady Gaga
The public debate about evolution itself, as opposed to whether to teach it, is something else. It is boring, demeaning, and insufferably dull.
Ian Hacking
I have not held a singles title in New Japan or Ring of Honor, whether that’s the TV title or the world title or something else.
Adam Page
Whatever the issue is, whether it’s Ebola or something else, I just want to get involved. Sometimes, even if it’s just my time or my words, if my involvement changes people from donating $1 to $2, then I’ll do it.
Luol Deng
Reggaeton is something else – it is part of pop culture. It is something very big that I don’t believe will ever die.
Bad Bunny
When a nanotech company matures and becomes a real business, it becomes something else. It becomes a biotech company or a cleantech company or a memory chip company. Nanotechnology has fueled the core innovations in electronics and energy.
Steve Jurvetson
By the time you do what somebody else is doing, everybody has moved on to something else.
Tyler Joseph
Convention serves a purpose: It gives life meaning, and without it, one is in a constant existential crisis. If you don’t have the imposition of family to remind you of what is at stake, something else will.
Elizabeth Wurtzel
I think I understand passion. Love is something else.
Paul Theroux
Now, if they’re there to talk about something specifically, and I determine through my own editorial judgment, that another area isn’t germane, or isn’t an important part of it, that’s something else. But we never agree to anything in advance, absolutely not.
Katie Couric
I’m extremely straightforward. And I can’t do that sort of traditional girl thing of saying one thing that actually means something else. I never understood it, and I still don’t understand it.
Susanne Bier
I went to university every day for five years. I thought, ‘I must – must – go to school.’ Look, my hands, these are like guns. When you have guns, you can relax. But in the future, you need something else.
Gennady Golovkin
It is much easier to imitate something else that you know is accepted and loved than it is to look inside and follow your own compass, because you have no idea if you’ll be accepted, if you’ll be right, if your ideas are good, if your way is a path to success.
Shannon Lee
Usually I do a job, and, like, two weeks later, it disappears and is replaced with something else, but ‘Get Out’ kept growing and growing and growing, and it keeps taking me to rooms I could never get in before.
Daniel Kaluuya
If people come to a record store, and they can’t find your album, they buy something else.
Boots Riley
I went to a good school, played sports; things came rel

I went to a good school, played sports; things came relatively easy for me. Whenever I would get faced with adversity, I would always go do something else.
Lauren Gibbs
What I did sign was a tentative contract with Impact Wrestling when they were still Impact. That contract had a clause for me, because I was already working on some stuff in other areas of television. That clause basically said that if something else in television were to happen for me, they can’t be uncooperative.
Brandi Rhodes
I was born and raised to play rugby. I have two parents who are hugely proud of my rugby achievements, but even they say that maybe it was just a platform to give me a voice to do something better, and rugby wasn’t what I was all about. Something else was.
Gareth Thomas
I’m producing more, but I think to direct, one has to have a burning desire, and that’s not me. I’d rather do something else.
Vincent Cassel
At the outset, at least, all three groups had something else to recommend them, as well: They were headquartered 3,000 miles away from the East Side of Manhattan.
Tom Wolfe
Sometimes the worst thing that can happen is, ‘Oh, I’m on stage playing a song,’ because you’re daydreaming about something else, you’re on autopilot. You have to fight that.
Trent Reznor
I like zombie movies. I like ‘The Walking Dead;’ I like the metaphor of it, simply because when we go with the zombie concept – if you’re bitten by a zombie, you don’t transform into something else like a vampire or a werewolf or whatever. You become something that’s not you.
Marilyn Manson
I’m quite confident with the way that I look but you find something else to focus on don’t you if, I mean I, I have body issues that’s my thing so you find something to focus on when you’re a perfectionist, I think.
Natalie Imbruglia
In economics, one of the most important concepts is ‘opportunity cost’ – the idea that once you spend your money on something, you can’t spend it again on something else.
Malcolm Turnbull
I think my family needs me more than anybody else, and tennis doesn’t need me anymore. I respect my wife a lot for taking all that in. She said, ‘I didn’t marry a tennis player; you’d retired.’ Now it’s time to do something else.
Thomas Muster
I certainly never intended for myself an academic career and, were the academy to suffer, I’d just go do something else. I don’t have a commitment to it or to really, frankly, almost any institution that assumes that it has to be stable forever.
Clay Shirky
A lot of tragedy can befall us, but there’s always something else; there’s always hope.
Chris Pine
Demagoguery sells. And therefore radio stations will put it on. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t do something else and also make it sell. You know, when I look at an Ann Coulter or I look at a Rush or I look at a Sean Hannity, I think to myself, ‘What kind of self-image do you have?’
Al Franken
I’m gonna make my records, whether I release them as Bleachers or something else.
Jack Antonoff
It would’ve been hard to do something else, to as it were, run away from the circus and become an accountant.
Samuel West
If I was freer than I had ever been in my life, I was not yet entirely free, for I still hung on to an idea that had been set deep in me by all my schooling so far: I was a bright boy and I ought to make something out of myself… something else that would be a cut or two above my humble origins.
Wendell Berry
I don’t want to spend all my time working as an activist. I don’t get satisfaction out of it. I’d rather be doing something else. I’m a musician.
Serj Tankian
I really do see the good in people, and I don’t want to change that. That’s really how I view things, so sometimes I’ll look past a lot of huge red flags because I see something else in someone. Then, of course, it always comes back to haunt me in the long run.
Jennifer Morrison
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Work takes different forms. I can spend two or three days without completing anything, and it’s choppy: it’s filled with all kinds of irrationalities and stupid actions. I have some notion, and then I drop it because something else comes along. I’m forever darting from one side of the room to the other.
Edward Ruscha
It’s challenging to take on something else that is not you and make it very real and have others be able to associate with it. It’s wonderful to provoke thought.
Dash Mihok
I didn’t think I was going to be an actress. Everybody in my family was in films, and they succeeded so much, I thought, ‘It’s better for me to do something else,’ and they agreed.
Isabella Rossellini
I think it’s incumbent on actresses to bring something else to the part which isn’t in the script.
Natascha McElhone
I was very much on the mathematical side, where you probably do your best work before you’re forty-five. Having passed that significant date, I thought I would do something else.
