In America right now, we use words like ‘smart’ to talk about bombs. American rhetoric is grounded in ideas of capital-G Good, capital-E Evil, and it’s very clear who is on which side. But in a book you can do just the opposite. You can use all lower-case words.
Jonathan Safran Foer
When I seemed to be irritable or sad, my father would quote the learned Dr. Knight, and then say, ‘Just go to sleep.’ Like all smart aleck kids, I thought the advice was silly. But as I’ve grown older, I’ve realized just how smart Knight was.
Ben Stein
So key for making smart decisions is a mindset that actively monitors and is open to shifting tides and new information, one that is acutely aware that the interplay between our environment and its outcomes is ever in flux.
Noreena Hertz
But figuring out Saddam Hussein was one our greatest mysteries. He marched to his own drummer and frequently as this unfolded he made decisions which were sometimes inexplicable to us and sometimes didn’t look very smart.
Brent Scowcroft
I really can’t complain about actresses who get paid to be dumb. Most of us can’t get paid to be smart.
Aaron Allston
People are trying to be smart – all I am trying to do is not to be idiotic, but it’s harder than most people think.
Charlie Munger
I was a pretty nerdy kid. I was pretty nerdy. I’m still kind of nerdy. I have all of the worst qualities of being a nerd – all of the affect and none of the smarts. I’m a useless nerd! That’s pretty bad.
Claire Danes
Smart people, often times, are miserable people.
Sean Evans
A brain is a society of very small, simple modules that cannot be said to be thinking, that are not smart in themselves. But when you have a network of them together, out of that arises a kind of smartness.
Kevin Kelly
Let me tell you, Barack Obama is the most down dude in the world, but he’s so smart; so articulate, such an amazing speaker; such a passionate man. He’s humble.
Marlon Wayans
I won’t ever put myself in a bad position so that people can say bad things about me. I make smart decisions, and my friends and my family, they are all there for the right reason.
Derrick Rose
The venture business is a bit of an apprenticeship busi

The venture business is a bit of an apprenticeship business, so the firm I worked for didn’t let me make an investment until I was 30. That was probably a very smart thing.
Fred Wilson
I used to go around looking as frumpy as possible because it was inconceivable you could be attractive as well as be smart. It wasn’t until I started being myself, the way I like to turn out to meet people that I started to get any work.
Catherine Zeta-Jones
I was very young when we got married and I don’t know why it worked out like it did or how I was smart enough to know that this was the right guy, but somehow I got lucky.
Kyra Sedgwick
I called my business manager in California and said, ‘Sell all of my stock’ – what little of it I had – and it’s the only smart financial move I ever made.
Lauren Bacall
I have to be a lot more calculating because I’m a very private person. I actually really struggle with the attention; I’m generally a pretty shy kind of a person. So it’s tough figuring out how to manage it. But there are ways of managing it, and you just have to be smart.
Emily Watson
Virgin Galactic, which will be operating SpaceShipTwo, will be only one of several spacelines. The competitors for Virgin include the Russians, Bezos’s Blue Origin, and possibly Rocketplane Kistler. And likely a couple of others who are smart enough not to tell people what they are doing!
Burt Rutan
We do have very intelligent actresses in our country. They’re all very capable, smart and are managing their professions very well.
Soha Ali Khan
I felt ashamed about everything. Me dropping out of high school, me not, you know, just not being beautiful enough. I just didn’t feel like I was smart enough or beautiful enough, you know, for years.
Mary J. Blige
Well, I was lucky enough to be involved in about 19 failures at an early age, so I’m realistic about the success I’m having and how quickly it can go away. What’s important is to be smart about it.
Matthew Perry
Smart women love smart men more than smart men love smart women.
Natalie Portman
Bill Bakula was my angel. In one moment in my life, he was sent by God to make me and my message of love be known. He was very smart. He was the master.
Walter Mercado
Dick Van Dyke was my first idol. He’s an amazing physical comedian, like a classic clown, but also very smart and not afraid to show vulnerability.
Douglas Wood
A Smart City cannot be imagined without proper recycling.
Rajnath Singh
Well, Well, Well, its certainly a compelling provocative exciting delicious to think about idea, smart people say the universe is so big there must be something statistically it could be likely there could be something happening on some other world.
Jeff Goldblum
The thing about hip-hop today is it’s smart, it’s insightful. The way they can communicate a complex message in a very short space is remarkable.
Barack Obama
Our Fly Smart philosophy is about investing only on those points of differentiation that pay for themselves, that earn a revenue premium commensurate with what it costs us to provide that product or service.
Gerard Arpey
Billy Tauzin is one of the most interesting people in Washington. He is smart, funny, and interesting.
Tucker Carlson
People look at me, and they go, ‘You’re white, you’re smart, you must have went to college. You must have grown up with money.’
Adam Carolla
Whatever you do in life, surround yourself with smart people who’ll argue with you.
John Wooden
Every Southerner, I think, knows people like Bill Clinton, maybe not quite as smart and maybe not quite as liberal, but kind of a glad-handing, country-club yuppie Southerner. The problem is we don’t have labels for middle-class Southerners.
John Shelton Reed
The American people are smart. They’ve gotten sick of the predictable hyperpartisan talking points and canned anger.
John Avlon
I’m smart and I can be really funny and interesting and I can go toe-to-toe with anybody in a conversation.
Megan Fox
I love meeting fans. The people who are fans of my books are really smart and dedicated, because some independent comics are hard to get. I will drive all the way to Pittsburgh or Detroit to put it in their hands.
Brian Michael Bendis
It’s – the working class of San Francisco and the Bay Area is being pushed out of its old neighborhoods because of the skyrocketing cost of housing, and there’s no real working class left because these are jobs for engineers and managers and designers – very smart people.
George Packer
I’m the smart aleck. The class clown. I’m the guy who does the song nobody expects.
Brad Paisley
A woman who knows that she doesn’t have to get all decked out to look good is sexy. A woman who can make you feel smart with her conversation skills is also sexy. I believe the sense of humor is important.
Benedict Cumberbatch
Smart on Crime says if you commit violent crimes, you should go to jail, and go to jail for extended periods of time. For people who are engaged in non-violent crimes – any crimes, for that matter – we are looking for sentences that are proportionate to the conduct that you engaged in.
Eric Holder
I think it’s smart to always keep an eye on the companies that sit within incubator communities, which bring together the skills and expertise needed to grow an enterprise.
Whitney Wolfe Herd
What people don’t know about oppression is that the oppressor works much harder. You always grew up being told you were not smart enough or not fast enough, but we all lived from the time we were children to beat the system.
Hugh Masekela
Telly never has any smart, amusing intellectuals living on a council estate.
Caitlin Moran
Truly smart technologies will remind us that we are not mere automatons who assist big data in asking and answering questions.
Evgeny Morozov
Hollywood views regular people as children, and they th

Hollywood views regular people as children, and they think they’re the smart ones who need to tell the idiots out there how to be.
Trey Parker
I have great people, smart people that are around me and we love the challenge. I guess it’s like climbing a mountain or building a building. It’s a challenge but you love every challenge that it brings or presents itself.
Ice Cube
Whenever I’ve done anything where I feel like, ‘Oh, it would be smart to do that,’ it’s always been a mistake. Whenever I do the ‘Oh, it would be fun to do that,’ it’s always paid dividends.
Justin Theroux
The smart thing in the art world is to have one good idea and never have another.
Brian Eno
To get past a rival you have to be smart.
Giorgio Chiellini
I love meeting fans. They’re always fun, they always have good things to say, smart questions to ask, and plenty of ideas for me to explore in the future.
Tamora Pierce
If you’re so smart, let’s see you get out of the Army.
Casey Stengel
In a certain sense, this guy – who is one of the most evil people in the book – he’s not really that bad at running the show, because he knows what he’s doing, he’s smart and he’s got the big picture in mind. He’s like the Godfather.
Kevin J. Anderson
Let’s just be smart this time. I’m looking for smart.
Joe Biden
Men are strong, women are smart, but no matter how smart, their bellies are always there to betray women and that’s their downfall.
Simone Schwarz-Bart
Girls have an unfair advantage over men: if they can’t get what they want by being smart, they can get it by being dumb.
Yul Brynner
I thought it was time for a tough, smart, likable female private investigator, and that’s how VI came to life.
Sara Paretsky
Whatever happened to books? Suddenly everybody’s talking about these 100-hour movies called ‘Breaking Bad’. People are talking about TV the same way they used to talk about novels back in the 1980s. I like to think I hang out with some pretty smart people, but all they talk about is ‘Breaking Bad.’
Douglas Coupland
You can be an absolute woman and also be smart and tough and not lose your femininity.
Priyanka Chopra
They say somebody’s ‘street smart.’ I feel like, if I got intelligence, it’s just a country smart.
Dolly Parton
We like to think about how smart we are. But I think talent as a writer is hard-wired in, it’s all there, at least the basic elements of it. You can’t change it any more than you can choose whether to be right handed or left handed.
Stephen King
For example, for me, my brother helped me get a manager, which I don’t take for granted. It’s tough getting a manager, let alone one that actually cares about you and is smart. But from there, no one’s going to cast me just because I’m James Franco’s little brother.
Dave Franco
How do you know what it’s like to be stupid if you’ve never been smart?
Lou Holtz
As a teacher, I’ve never seen anything like ‘Harry Potter.’ That’s why I smart when people talk about the ‘next’ ‘Harry Potter.’ There is no ‘next’ ‘Harry Potter.’
Rick Riordan
I like the Baldwin boys a great deal. Alec is super-smart, super-articulate, almost too smart to be an actor.
Anthony LaPaglia
You need a screwdriver for screws and a hammer for nails. Anybody that’s trying to screw in a nail with a screwdriver… that ain’t too smart.
apl.de.ap
I turned down ‘Some Like It Hot.’ See how smart I am? I felt I couldn’t bring anything funny to it. The outfit was funny. I don’t need to compete with the wardrobe.
Jerry Lewis
I talked about becoming stupid, but I’ve always been stupid. Fortunately I’ve been just smart enough to realize that I’m stupid.
Larry Wall
Being in politics is like being a football coach. You have to be smart enough to understand the game, and dumb enough to think it’s important.
Eugene McCarthy
In the first person, the readers feel smart, like it’s them solving the case.
Patricia Cornwell
I think Fast Company has a tremendously smart focus and execution.
James Daly
Sometimes I feel like if two parents were given $100, and a child-free person was given $100, everyone would assume that the parents would invest their money wisely because they’re smart. And people like me would just go buy candy.
Jen Kirkman
Smart, well-meaning people get it wrong when they start believing that the world owes them something and that the rules are different for them.
Guy Kawasaki
I was just a goofy little funny kid, who was always getting sent to the principal. It wasn’t serious because I was smart. I wasn’t like a true troublemaker, just rambunctious – like, talkative and trying to be funny. That was me in middle-school.
J. Cole
It’s so nice after 10 years as a blond actress in Hollywood to have people let you do smart things.
Emily Procter
Being in The Fall isn’t like being in another group. It isn’t a holiday. A lot of musicians are really hard to deal with. They aren’t as smart as me.
Mark E. Smith
I don't need someone with a hot body. He can be fat or

I don’t need someone with a hot body. He can be fat or overweight and have a belly. It’s very much about style and substance and humor, interest, curiosity and really being smart.
Kate Walsh
I’ve been smart with my money and own a property in London so I’m very happy, and I’ve got a nice car.
A. J. Pritchard
The launch of free Wi-Fi service is a step forward to smart cities to bring revolutionary change in the lives of the masses and to bridge the digital divide.
Shehbaz Sharif
Mentors provide professional networks, outlets for frustration, college and career counseling, general life advice, and most importantly, an extra voice telling a student they are smart enough and capable enough to cross the stage at graduation and land their first paycheck from a career pathway job.
Gerald Chertavian
When a man lacks mental balance in pneumonia he is said to be delirious. When he lacks mental balance without the pneumonia, he is pronounced insane by all smart doctors.
Martin H. Fischer
William Shatner has one style. We have completely contrasting personalities. We’re very good friends. I adore him, but we’re very different people, so they were smart enough to write characters that reflected that.
Patrick Stewart
I’ve learned that while I’d be a fool not to stay open to the advice and experiences of the smart, amazing people in my life, I also need to listen to what I have to say.
Alicia Keys
That’s what I think is smart about ‘Durham County.’ It’s not derivative of anything American. It’s more in the vein of the BBC miniseries I grew up with.
Michelle Forbes
Ninety percent of the research comes first. I mostly blunder around reading stuff and talking to smart people until an idea batters or oozes its way through to my narrative brain.
Scott Westerfeld
It doesn’t matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn’t matter how smart you are. If it doesn’t agree with experiment, it’s wrong.
Richard P. Feynman
Fortunately, as it pertains to guns, my dad and uncle introduced me to guns the way it needs to be done: smart, slow and safe.
Ted Nugent
I wonder if I ever thought of an ideal reader… I guess when I was in my 20s and in New York and maybe even in my early 30s, I would write for my wife Janice… mainly for my poet friends and my wife, who was very smart about poetry.
Kenneth Koch
And I have a really great agent and I know it’s almost an oxymoron to say you have a smart agent. But she is and she has a beautiful aesthetic and she has guided me.
Patricia Clarkson
My fellow students there were very smart, but the really novel thing was that they actually seemed to put a lot of effort into their school work. By the end of my first semester there, I began to get into that habit as well.
Eric Allin Cornell
For me, the most important consideration is to choose attire that is functional, but looks stylish too. That means going for colors that are understated and use smart fabrics.
Chris Hoy
But here’s the deal: If I were smart, I could figure out curling. If I were even smarter, I could figure out why people would actually watch other people doing it. I have tried. I can’t. I can’t even figure out the object of the game. Is it like darts? I just don’t get it.
Bob Schieffer
Smart drafting is a wonderful thing. A smart free-agent signing is a wonderful thing. Smart trades are a wonderful thing, and that’s a function of management.
David Stern
Just because you eat doesn’t mean you eat smart. It’s hard to beat a $1.99 wing pack of three at a fast-food restaurant – it’s so cheap – but that wing pack isn’t feeding anyone, it’s just pushing hunger back an hour.
Mario Batali
My background really comes from geekdom and the idea of building a smart machine. If we’re going to build a smart machine, let’s have it read good books.
Brewster Kahle
Comedy is only as stupid as you are smart.
Brian Celio
I’d love to say I made the smart decision of picking projects that became hits, but with ‘The Good Wife,’ I read the script and something inside me said, ‘I love this, I want to do this.’
Archie Panjabi
I have surrounded myself with very smart people.
Dolly Parton
‘Smart power’ is the use of American power in ways that would help prevent and resolve conflict – not just send our military in.
Hillary Clinton
I don’t know if it’s a very smart idea to admire the living.
Douglas Coupland
There are many great writers out there and, actually, great scripts. The problem is – and this is what I’ve always felt, even when I got out of school and started reading scripts – the really smart, character-driven stuff tends to be smaller films, and they just don’t get made.
Paul Rudd
Smart, sustainable, inclusive growth is the key to job-creation and the future prosperity of Europe.
Jose Manuel Barroso
I had good coaches and mentors. They helped me a lot, and I trusted them when they tapped on my shoulder to move to the next level. And maybe I’ve been smart enough to always say yes more than no when I’ve been proposed a new and challenging jobs.
Pierre Nanterme
The future is going to require really smart people. What we think are crises today probably will be no big deal, and we have no idea what will really be crises in the future.
Dean Kamen
My parents wanted me to be smart and be a scholar, and the best I could do was graduate high school.
Levon Helm
Elephants are like humans. They are very smart, very logical.
Peter Beard
I think I am smart unless I am really, really in love, and then I am ridiculously stupid.
Taylor Swift
Sometimes things just fall out of your head on the pape

Sometimes things just fall out of your head on the paper, and if you’re smart, you learn not to touch them.
Laurie Halse Anderson
What I think is that Fox has done a very smart job of carving out their place.
Tom Brokaw
I want to be able to speak with errors in my wording, errors in my grammar. When you type things into Google search, it corrects your words. With speech, I want it to be general enough, smart enough, to know ‘No, he couldn’t have meant these words that I think he said. He must have really meant something similar.’
Steve Wozniak
Widowhood had done nothing to curb my smart mouth. So much for diplomacy.
Esther Williams
I grew up with plenty of smart people. They would beat me at chess; they could solve brain teasers before I could, but then they would struggle in algebra. These were incredibly smart people who simply did not have the foundation in math that I had.
Sal Khan
I mean, if you’re being directed very precisely by somebody who has admiration and who’s really smart, it’s great. If you’re being told what to do by a nincompoop – and luckily that hasn’t happened very often – it can be very frustrating.
Kristin Scott Thomas
Keeping your head down and just writing is only part of the equation, so I surround myself with smart people to help sell my books.
Michael Connelly
Rather than lose the public because television is here, wouldn’t it be smart to adopt television as our instrument?
Adolph Zukor
If you’re smart enough to go to college, you should be smart and creative enough to pay for it.
Jesse Ventura
My favorite moment is when someone says, ‘I like ‘Unleashed.’ ‘Now You See Me’ is so much fun.’ That’s what I want to do: smart, fun and big movies. I cannot lie, I love working with those big paint brushes. I have a blast doing these movies.
Louis Leterrier
The truth is when I went to graduate school I would’ve said I was among the least talented of the students, I was certainly the least smart, or less educated. But I worked very hard.
Mary Karr
McVay is a great coach and I think that he’s smart.
Aaron Donald
Fishing is a hard job. Fishing at night. Rain. Day, night. You have to be wise and smart. And quick.
Mariano Rivera
I’ve got to give Larry Bird his due; he was a great player. He knew the game and he was smart.
Dennis Rodman
I’m intrigued by smart people.
Vittoria Ceretti
If two smart, intelligent, clever guys sit together on a table, and you both want the same, where can be the problem? We all want to be successful.
Jurgen Klopp
You have to be smart enough not to dismiss where you came from. It may not be all we are, but it makes up for a great deal.
Julia Roberts
I guess I’ve got a smart wife.
Yogi Berra
I was a smart kid, but I hated school.
Eminem
One of the great perks of being an actor is you’re only as smart as the job you’re in, you know, and you’re only as informed as the job you’re in, and you do become an expert, and you read all the books, but then there’s a part of, like, you move on.
Amy Ryan
Give your kid some credit for being smart – just because they read about something doesn’t mean they will do it.
Lauren Myracle
I think it’s cool to be smart, and I think it’s sexy to be smart.
Stacey Farber
Common sense would suggest that having ability, like being smart, inspires confidence. It does, but only while the going is easy. The deciding factor in life is how you handle setbacks and challenges. People with a growth mindset welcome setbacks with open arms.
Travis Bradberry
For the past few years, I’ve been more selective than I have any right to be, but I think that’s finally starting to work in my favor. I think I get way too much credit for making what people consider to be smart choices, but it’s only because I made a decision to stop worrying about making money.
Lizzy Caplan
If you’re too smart it can limit you because you spend so much time thinking that you don’t do anything.
John Malkovich
When you live in America, it’s kind of insular – the news coverage that you get – unless you’re really smart about it and find more international news coverage. I’ve learned that from my husband. In the French culture, they talk politics.
Kim Raver
When a Mormon knocks, they say, ‘Can I teach you about Jesus Christ?’ And if you say no, they’ll say, ‘Then how can I be of service to you?’ So anybody who was smart would be like, ‘You can take out my trash and mow my lawn.’
Dan Reynolds
In Europe they call geeks ‘smart people,’ and frankly I think we live in a culture that doesn’t value intelligence enough; so I am very proud in saying that I am a geek.
James Marsters
I know, as an overachiever straight-A student in school, I always responded to smart, strong, women represented on screen.
Allison Scagliotti
I have not the smarts or patience for political office.
Henry Rollins
You should be smart enough to know that you don’t know everything. But you have to believe in yourself. I certainly do.
Diane Kruger
Show your kids that needs and wants are two different t

Show your kids that needs and wants are two different things. The best way to teach our kids to be smart consumers – and savvy savers – is to model good behavior for them.
Jean Chatzky
As athletes, we love to say, ‘Just one more; I’m going to figure it out on this next one.’ It’s tough to pull back the reins and do what is smart physically, listening to your body and always ending a workout or session feeling like I could have done more.
Ashton Eaton
Liberals are some of the most arrogant, condescending smart alecks, but they’re just pure ignorant, and they fit the bill of people who have no love and no respect for the founding of this country.
Rush Limbaugh
That is not all I need. I need dogs. A house filled with dogs and a smart, funny, kind, loving girlfriend or wife.
Moby
You know, I think British comedy is very smart comedy. You don’t get too much dumb comedy over here. Or at least I haven’t seen it. If I’m wrong about that, I apologize to all the dumb comedy makers over here.
Matt LeBlanc
We have Beast, our Hungarian sheep dog. And he is so talented. He’s so smart. He knows his daily schedule. He has an extracurricular activity. He goes herding. He herds sheep. And we’ve been told that he’s quite gifted.
Priscilla Chan
Between a fellow who is stupid and honest and one who is smart and crooked, I will take the first. I won’t get much out of him, but with that other guy I can’t keep what I’ve got.
Lewis B. Hershey
I’m old fashioned. I’m not one of these young guys who think they are so smart that they can prescribe what humanity ought to do. Humanity never learns any lessons. Prescriptions don’t matter. We already know exactly what to do. We just don’t do it.
Vaclav Smil
My talent isn’t so much in traditional research as in finding really smart people and badgering them with questions.
Maria Semple
If anyone tells you it’s impossible to be fabulous and smart and make a ton of money using math, well, they can just get in line behind you – and kiss your math.
Danica McKellar
After all those years as a woman hearing ‘not thin enough, not pretty enough, not smart enough, not this enough, not that enough,’ almost overnight I woke up one morning and thought, ‘I’m enough.’
Anna Quindlen
I don’t often think of Donald Trump, but his daughter is very smart. She’s a woman working in real estate, which is predominantly men, and she’s both savvy and articulate about her business and her business acumen.
Gayle Tzemach Lemmon
A smart model is a good model.
Tyra Banks
Nobody ever really thought of me as sexy, right? They thought of me as smart and quirky.
Cynthia Nixon
Nobody expects girls to do something smart or give one liners in a film.
Nushrat Bharucha
We’re all human beings, but some of us are more sophisticated at covering our flaws. We’re just smart enough to lie to ourselves that everything is OK.
Mehmet Oz
A smartphone is a computer – it’s not built using a computer – the job it does is the job of being a computer. So, everything we say about computers, that the software you run should be free – you should insist on that – applies to smart phones just the same. And likewise to those tablets.
Richard Stallman
I want girls to feel the confidence you get from being smart. They get so many messages that tell them the most important thing is to be beautiful.
Danica McKellar
A lot of TV is put together by teams, by writing staffs and several different directors. It’s a great, very smart way to make television. It’s worked for however long TV’s been around.
Louis C. K.
My own experience with being interviewed is mixed. I suppose they’re a part of my job, and as I would like readers to connect with my books, I do them. I’ve also made many lifelong friends whom I first encountered as interviewers – as a writer, they’re a terrific way to meet and add smart new people to one’s life.
Douglas Coupland
It doesn’t matter how smart you are; to audition for ‘Jeopardy,’ you just have to luck out and know what they’re asking you that day.
Drew Carey
ArcGIS Online is the complete hosted GIS in the cloud, supporting mapping and apps. Additions to this component have included smart mapping, formal metadata, better administration, and high-performance geocoding.
Jack Dangermond
Crows are incredibly smart. They can be taught five things on the drop.
Robbie Coltrane
I knew I wasn’t going to make money in the beginning, so I found another way to support myself – I was a receptionist. It’s quite smart to work that way. Otherwise, you get vicious and desperate, and no one wants to work with you. Build your career slowly; then people start to trust you and pay you well.
Pat McGrath
When I was in high school, there was ‘Superbad’ and ‘The Girl Next Door’ and ‘Wedding Crashers’ and all these great movies. You hope to be a part of something that’s smart, funny and in that Todd Phillips-vein. You want to make something like ‘Superbad.’ That movie was so good and so funny.
Miles Teller
I think the American people are very smart in understanding our country is very trustworthy with nuclear weapons. We’ve had them from the beginning. But they have also been critical for keeping the world more at peace than it would have been if it hadn’t been for the American nuclear umbrella.
Haley Barbour
I wanted to play a mother again. I thought it would be interesting to play the mother of an older child. And it was also the kind of part I’ve been looking for my whole career, actually, in film. You know, just to play a femme fatale who’s very smart, and wicked.
Sigourney Weaver
Am I going to complain about being typecast as smart? I don’t think so.
Aisha Tyler
You need to be smart about what you put in your body.
Stacy Keibler
Wherever smart people work, doors are unlocked.
Steve Wozniak
It’s really amazing that in the age of unbelief, as a smart man called it, there isn’t even more fraud. After all, with no God, there’s no one to ever call you to account, and no accounting at all if you can get away with it.
Ben Stein
I'm a smart guy, I know the history of this issue and w

I’m a smart guy, I know the history of this issue and why people care about it.
Gregg Easterbrook
I like to play smart, three-dimensional women. I also like to play roles where the women are a little crazy. I just have a feel for crazy people.
Lili Taylor
I think David Letterman is a genius. Night after night he is funny and smart. He seems to really enjoy his jokes. They seem connected to who he really is. I like watching him, and there is no one better at turning an awkward moment into something very funny.
Casey Affleck
I was okay with school. My sister Kourtney was extremely smart. I always read a little slower.
Kim Kardashian
The great person is ahead of their time, the smart make something out of it, and the blockhead, sets themselves against it.
Jean Baudrillard
I’m smart about the way I move. I’m smart about the way I conduct myself outside the Octagon, like who I associate myself with.
Israel Adesanya
A manager’s job is simple. For one hundred sixty-two games you try not to screw up all that smart stuff your organization did last December.
Earl Weaver
I love working with smart people and being challenged. I also like working on stuff that’s relevant. That’s my adrenaline shot.
Anders Hejlsberg
I said yes to Smart because I know that connectivity plays a big role in linking K-Drama to Filipinos. I would not have felt this kind of reception from our friends in the Philippines if the fans did not have access to the content we offer.
Hyun Bin
If I could create a world where people lived forever, or at the very least a few billion years, I would do so. I don’t think humanity will always be stuck in the awkward stage we now occupy, when we are smart enough to create enormous problems for ourselves, but not quite smart enough to solve them.
Eliezer Yudkowsky
I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.
Woody Hayes
Some smart man once said that on the most exalted throne in the world, we are seated on nothing but our own arse.
Wendell Mayes
Zimbabweans are so smart and witty and able to weave together tons of situations and experiences into terminologies that are just utterly original.
Danai Gurira
You can hate me for being a woman, you can hate me for being smart, you can hate me for being funny, but you hate me because I am doing something you could never do. End of story.
Iliza Shlesinger
Guys don’t really don’t wanna hear if it’s really smart, and women feel uncomfortable if you reveal stuff they’re going to have to remember they did themselves.
Liz Phair
There’s a lot of smart women doing dumb things with their health, and I fell into that category as well.
Wendy Williams
Women are often worried about how they look, and that’s not superficial. We know that our appearance has nothing to do with how smart, creative, or hardworking we are, but it plays powerfully into what society decides we are worth.
Cameron Russell
I know it sounds weird, but my definition of ‘sexy’ has changed as I’ve gotten older. And being smart and informed makes me feel sexier than any outfit.
Sarah Shahi
My favorite subject was recess. Fortunately for me, I had a mother who believed I was smart.
Ben Carson
If you’re smart and you care about life, you’ll take driving seriously.
Victoria Justice
Smart energy policy is good for the economy and our environment.
Madison Cawthorn
It was a very cool thing to be a smart girl, as opposed to some other, different kind. And I think that made a great deal of difference to me growing up and in my life afterward.
Elena Kagan
I can’t say enough about how I’m against drugs. Be smart, think about it, look at what it does to people, look at how much you have to experience in life and be courageous enough to do everything you want to without that chemical help.
Erika Christensen
I don’t like to eat octopus. They’re so smart.
Patti Harrison
I like information. I love when smart people make me think of something in a new way.
Terry Francona
There is something exciting about being in an environment in which it’s really cool to be smart.
Freeman A. Hrabowski III
Something I’ve realized lately, to my shock, is that I am an optimist, in that I think humans are almost infinitely capable of self-change and self-modification, and that we really can build the future that we want if we’re smart about it.
Brian Eno
I never took my SAT’s. I never applied to college. I moved right out here and jumped into the thick of things. Whether that was the smart move or not, I’m sitting here talking to you now, so it paid off.
Scott Foley
I’m not that tough; I’m not that smart. I need life telling me who I am, showing me my mind constantly. I wouldn’t see it in a cave.
Richard Gere
I think it’s because it’s so different and it takes risks. Plus, it’s really smart humor. It gives the audience credit in terms of not needing to tell them when to laugh. I love that about the show. There’s no laugh track.
Sarah Chalke
I’m not suggesting that microbial cellulose is going to be a replacement for cotton, leather or other textile materials. But I do think it could be quite a smart and sustainable addition to our increasingly precious natural resources.
Suzanne Lee
Study how to write smart contracts, which is the basic

Study how to write smart contracts, which is the basic unit of programming a blockchain for business purposes. It is the equivalent of being taught HTML and Java during the early Internet days. And master how to create assets or tokenize existing ones on a blockchain.
William Mougayar
Greg Berlanti, David Nutter, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim are the people I wanted to work with. They’re smart, they’re funny, they’re cool, they’re edgy.
Katie Cassidy
When somebody tells you they’re not very smart, they’re saying exactly the opposite.
Tim Allen
Women I know are smart, educated, intelligent, capable of doing anything that anybody else can do.
Mike Huckabee
Unlike ‘real relationships’, ‘virtual relationships’ are easy to enter and to exit. They look smart and clean, feel easy to use, when compared with the heavy, slow-moving, messy real stuff.
Zygmunt Bauman
I think generally the heads of terrorist groups are very, very smart people. They’re also great manipulators. I would presume that cult leaders are identical. These sort of individuals are very strong, they have very strong charisma.
Loretta Napoleoni
I’m not smart, but I like to observe. Millions saw the apple fall, but Newton was the one who asked why.
William Hazlitt
Barack Obama is clearly a smart guy, talented.
Stephen Baldwin
‘MacGyver’ of course, that’s probably my favorite show of all time because it was a guy who was so, so smart and could use his wits, and his technical know-how could get him out of any situation.
Rhys Darby
Smart businesses do not look at labor costs alone anymore. They do look at market access, transportation, telecommunications infrastructure and the education and skill level of the workforce, the development of capital and the regulatory market.
Janet Napolitano
People typically only believe they’re in a negotiation when dollars are involved. And maybe sometimes they’re smart enough to see if there’s a commodity that you can count being exchanged. And, of course, the commodity that we most commonly exchange is money.
Christopher Voss
Sci-fi fans are awesome. They’re very smart, they like to be involved, they like to ask questions. I’ve been asked questions I don’t even know the answer to. I’ve never had any aggressive interactions. I’ve had lovely interactions.
Rachel Nichols
Smart people focus on the right things.
Jensen Huang
What’s nice about having an engineering degree is everybody thinks you are smart.
Ato Essandoh
I always try to be smart. I try to treat all the money I’m making like it’s the last time I’m going to make it.
Eminem
There’s a lot of potential that goes unused in places like South Central L.A., a lot of brilliant, smart people who just don’t have that chance to show it.
Ice Cube
There are a lot of smart honest, progressive people who I think can be good presidents.
Bernie Sanders
My parents moved around Stockton and Lodi. I had a lot of anxiety about jumping into another classroom. They were always putting me in special ed. But I was smart; I wasn’t like these kids in the special-ed classes. But it would make me feel a little bit stupid.
Nate Diaz
My message is: You don’t have to give up being popular, fun, or fashionable in order to be smart; they can go hand and hand. Doing math is a great way to exercise your brain; being smart is going to make you more powerful in life.
Danica McKellar
It’s very hard for a man to ask questions about sex. The smart ones do.
Betty Dodson
I always know how to play this game. It’s about being smart.
Ed Reed
If there are no stupid questions, then what kind of questions do stupid people ask? Do they get smart just in time to ask questions?
Scott Adams
Additionally, Smart Irrigation Month serves to recognize advances in irrigation technology and practices that produce not only more but also higher quality plants with less water.
Jim Costa
For a crowd to be smart, the people in it need to be not only diverse in their perspectives but also, relatively speaking, independent of each other. In other words, you need people to be thinking for themselves, rather than following the lead of those around them.
James Surowiecki
I didn’t grow up identifying with beauty. I grew up thinking I could be smart and funny – those are the things I got feedback on.
Lauren Graham
I think to be a successful comic, you have to be exceptionally smart and exceptionally perceptive.
Christopher Meloni
No way can you ever, ever, ever evidence confusion, concern, lack of understanding. You have to be in charge. You are the guy. You have to be cooler than cool, smarter than smart.
Gene Kranz
My grandfather was smart and had a whole lot of pride. He didn’t speak a terrible amount, but you could tell there was a ton on his mind – like a quiet acceptance of how life had turned out.
Frank Ocean
It’s all about trying to be very careful about what your next role or what your next move is gonna be. It’s all about trying to have longevity in this business and make smart choices.
Aaron Paul
I was miserable in West Side Story. They really miscast me. I came from the Midwest; what they really needed was a guy that was street smart. The first time I saw the movie, I had to walk out. I looked like the biggest fruit that ever walked on to film. My character was so weak.
Richard Beymer
When I was 14 or 15, a camp counselor told me I was smart. I had never been very good in school, but he told me once that I was smart but my mind operated a little differently.
Alan Dershowitz
I couldn't be as charming as my mother or as smart as m

I couldn’t be as charming as my mother or as smart as my father. So I decided to be bad.
Markie Post
Some guys play with their heads. That’s okay. You’ve got to be smart to be number one in any business. But more importantly, you’ve got to play with your heart, with every fiber of your body.
Vince Lombardi
I like to think I’m pretty smart with what I was able to do academically, but whenever I get on the field I turn into the Incredible Hulk and I am unstoppable.
Robert Griffin III
If I’m really considering doing film from now on then that is the smart thing to do, or you can go either way. You can just do the same character over and over again and make a different comedy like over and over again.
Ray Romano
I like playing smart women very, very much because I definitely learn from them.
Autumn Reeser
I think one problem we’ve had is that people who are smart and creative and innovative as engineers went into financial engineering.
Walter Isaacson
Alan Moore’s writing is almost novelistic. It’s very intricate and wordy and smart.
Adrianne Palicki
If we’re going to compete in this century, we have to compete on the basis of how smart we are.
Anthony Albanese
People say sometimes that I’m distracted. I’m not distracted. I’m being smart. I’m capitalizing while the iron is hot. That’s why I’m trying to do movies. I do the podcast. I do a radio show. I work on FOX. I have a gym; I have a lot of things going on. That’s because when I’m done, I want to be set up.
Michael Bisping
I was always the youngest person in class, skinny, scrawny, no good at sports. I asserted myself by being smart. But then I got to college and started to get C’s and D’s. That was fantastic. I no longer had to be the smartest person in the room.
Douglas Coupland
I do not believe that artists or actors and people should be out there like voicing their full-blown opinions on politics because, let’s face it, at the end of the day, I’m not that smart of a guy.
Kid Rock
The smart way to improve broadband is not to junk the existing network but to make the most of it. It’s to let a competitive market deliver the speeds that people need at an affordable price with government improving infrastructure in the areas where market competition won’t deliver it.
Tony Abbott
It’s a very smart and heartfelt movie and that’s why, I think, we’re all drawn to it. We really showed up for this with this collective idea that it was really ambitious, but we felt we all really had something to gain from it.
Robert Downey, Jr.
I think a smart person today realizes that you have to be part of the art films that are done just for the sake of the art.
Halle Berry
Hire sales people who are really smart problem solvers, but lack courage, hunger and competitiveness, and your company will go out of business.
Ben Horowitz
I think there ought to be some serious discussion by smart people, really smart people, about whether or not proliferation of things like The Smoking Gun and TMZ and YouTube and the whole celebrity culture is healthy.
Stephen King
Pigs are not that dirty. And they’re smart, strange little creatures. They just need love.
Shelley Duvall
A teacher is never too smart to learn from his pupils. But while runners differ, basic principles never change. So it’s a matter of fitting your current practices to fit the event and the individual. See, what’s good for you might not be worth a darn for the next guy.
Bill Bowerman
When you get to that level, it’s not a matter of talent anymore – because all the players are so talented – it’s about preparation, about playing smart and making good decisions.
Hakeem Olajuwon
We shouldn’t have to be burdened with all the technicalities that come up from time to time with shrewd, smart lawyers interpreting what the laws or what the Constitution may or may not say.
Dan Quayle
I don’t analyze what I’m doing. I’ve read convincing interpretations of my work, and sometimes I’ve noticed something that I wasn’t aware of, but I think, at this point, people read into my work out of habit. Or I’m just very, very smart.
Cindy Sherman
The other guy I dug a lot was Burroughs because he was a smart man already; he learned it through the druggie pool – the street scene of an old aristocratic kind of man.
Gregory Corso
Smart beauty is about looking your best and feeling your best and never overpaying for it.
Stacy London
The stereotypes of feminists as ugly, or man-haters, or hairy, or whatever it is – that’s really strategic. That’s a really smart way to keep young women away from feminism, is to kind of put out this idea that all feminists hate men, or all feminists are ugly; and that they really come from a place of fear.
Jessica Valenti
Kerry Washington is a mentor to me. She is so strong and smart. She’s also so giving and supportive.
Katie Lowes
I was pretty smart in school in terms of grades and stuff. I just got the bug to do music.
Jax Jones
The good news about showcasing chefs and the TV shows is they’ve attracted a lot more smart kids to the profession than 30 years ago. On the downside, though, these young chefs all say they want their own restaurant and their own TV show.
Wolfgang Puck
Remember to be as smart as you are.
Judd Nelson
I adored my mother. She was beautiful, smart, sexy and funny.
Orson Bean
Some of these kids just don’t plain know how good they are: how smart and how much they have to say. You can tell them. You can shine that light on them, one human interaction at a time.
Dave Eggers
Oftentimes, actors are looked at as court jesters. They are not looked at as deep-thinking, smart people who do many other things or have gifts in other areas.
Goldie Hawn
There'll never, ever be another Vince McMahon. Whether

There’ll never, ever be another Vince McMahon. Whether you like him, dislike him, love him, or whatever, the guy was a smart man. He knew what to do, and he knew how to do it.
Paul Orndorff
You could go crazy thinking of how unprivate our lives really are – the omnipresent security cameras, the tracking data on our very smart phones, the porous state of our Internet selves, the trail of electronic crumbs we leave every day.
Susan Orlean
None of us are really dumb and none of us are really smart. We’re in the middle.
Daniel Johns
Edward Norton and I have known each other awhile. I just think he’s the real deal, supremely talented and smart. He’s got a great sense of humor.
Kevin Spacey
I’m not just offensive, I’m very smart about the way that I do it, and that takes a lot of time. People say that young comics shouldn’t be trying these things. That’s ridiculous. You should try everything and see what sticks.
Anthony Jeselnik
When I got out of the Navy… all those hotshots, the guys that were really smart and attractive and all that, guess where they were going? They were going into advertising. That was the hot thing then.
Julian Robertson
You write for two people, yourself and your audience, who are usually better educated and at least as smart.
Tony Hillerman
Sydney is rather like an arrogant lover. When it rains it can deny you its love and you can find it hard to relate to. It’s not a place that’s built to be rainy or cold. But when the sun comes out, it bats its eyelids, it’s glamorous, beautiful, attractive, smart, and it’s very hard to get away from its magnetic pull.
Baz Luhrmann
When I came to Berkeley, I met all these Nobel laureates and I got to know that they were regular people. They were very smart and very motivated and worked very hard, but they were still humans, whereas before they were kind of mythical creatures to me.
George Smoot
There’s something quite joyful about doing comedy which doesn’t really need much analysis. I’m not elitist. I like to do crowd-pleasing stuff which is a bit smart, but is just about belly laughs.
Steve Coogan
We are the greatest computers in this world, but now we’ve created the smart phone which is smarter than us now, but we’re still making dumb decisions. We have given our creations more power than we have, and that to me is dumb.
Bootsy Collins
Why is it that if you take advantage of a corporate tax break you’re a smart businessman, but if you take advantage of something so you don’t go hungry, you’re a moocher?
Jon Stewart
Dogs really are perfect soldiers. They are brave and smart; they can smell through walls, see in the dark, and eat Army rations without complaint.
Susan Orlean
In the corporate world, there is no ground more fertile for appearing smart than the rich earth that is electronic communication. Your email writing, sending and ignoring skills are just as important as your nodding skills, and even more important than your copying and pasting skills.
Sarah Cooper
You don’t have to be dead to write a classic, and you don’t have to be literary to be smart.
Lisa Scottoline
To be a good actor, you have to be very smart. But to be a great actor, you also have to have a streak of, ‘I’m an idiot, a complete lunatic.’
Lena Olin
The things that make me laugh are considered smart or whatever, I guess. But stuff that’s self-consciously intelligent or self-consciously hip or cool, that doesn’t do it for me either. You just try to be funny.
Greg Giraldo
Obscenities… I think a lot of dumb people do it because they can’t think of what they want to say and they’re frustrated. A lot of smart people do it to pretend they aren’t very smart – want to be just one of the boys.
Andy Rooney
I’m going to college. I don’t care if it ruins my career. I’d rather be smart than a movie star.
Natalie Portman
As a pop star, you don’t have to be that smart for people to think you’re intelligent.
Adam Levine
I’m certainly not very book smart, but I started traveling at 16, and it has enriched me in ways I could never begin to explain.
Hilary Swank
Smart infrastructure can provide cost-saving ways for municipalities to handle both infrastructure and social needs. And we want to shift the systems that open the doors for people who were formerly tax burdens to become part of the tax base.
Majora Carter
Liberals are some of the most arrogant, condescending smart alecks, but they’re just pure ignorant, and they fit the bill of people who have no love and no respect for the founding of this country.
Rush Limbaugh
Shakespeare in Love… such smart writing of an alternative view of history, and such beautiful acting. Like most Americans, I’m a sucker for the accent.
Anita Diament
Widespread use of antibiotics promotes the spread of antibiotic resistance. Smart use of antibiotics is the key to controlling its spread.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
When I think about somebody like Keira Knightley, whom I don’t particularly know, I see somebody who is working hard, really trying to challenge herself and make smart choices in spite of people criticising her size and performances.
Kate Winslet
Wikipedia, every day, is tens of thousands of people inputting information, and every day millions of people withdrawing that information. It’s a perfect image for the fundamental point that no one of us is as smart as all of us thinking together.
James G. Stavridis
When you go into court you are putting your fate into the hands of twelve people who weren’t smart enough to get out of jury duty.
Norm Crosby
Audiences are always better pleased with a smart retort, some joke or epigram, than with any amount of reasoning.
Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Well, just being stupid and politically incorrect doesn’t work. You can be politically incorrect if you’re smart.
Mel Brooks
The nice thing about Squirrel Girl is that she’s smart, and she looks for situations that don’t necessarily involve punching people all the time.
Ryan North
We must respect the other fellow's religion, but only i

We must respect the other fellow’s religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.
H. L. Mencken
I don’t think I was funny until college. I lived with some Harvard MD/PhD students – they were so smart, and what I contributed to the house was, I was the funny one.
Wendy Liebman
You have to be smart. The easy days are over.
Robert Kiyosaki
I was raised that way: don’t get mad, get smart.
Andrew Young
Look, the American people are smart.
John Kennedy
I understand that it would be smart, career-wise, to line up something, but it wouldn’t be smart for my personal life or my sanity. Some people thrive when they’re working. I thrive when I’m hanging out with my friends and doing yoga.
Courtney Thorne-Smith
It’s better to get smart than to get mad. I try not to get so insulted that I will not take advantage of an opportunity to persuade people to change their minds.
John H. Johnson
I always hear, ‘Oh, she’s really beautiful.’ I’d die to hear, ‘Oh, she’s really smart.’ I’m not as dumb as I look.
Paulina Porizkova
When I grew older and awkward, when my parents divorced and life had gone all to hell, Demetrie stood me at the wardrobe mirror and told me over and over, ‘You are beautiful. You are smart. You are important.’ It was an incredible gift to give a child who thinks nothing of herself.
Kathryn Stockett
I never met anyone who didn’t have a very smart child. What happens to these children, you wonder, when they reach adulthood?
Fran Lebowitz
It’s important for women to embrace their beauty and sexuality. Females are victimized and made to feel ashamed of their bodies, or they can’t be smart and beautiful, and I try to work against that.
Melina Matsoukas
I don’t like being called ‘macho.’ Macho basically means stupid and a real Italian man is not macho, he’s smart. That’s smart in both senses: elegant and clever.
Andrea Bocelli
When you’re a politician, someone always wants something from you, so they’re constantly telling you how smart or great you are, and that can warp people! Exercising humility is important to me. My friends back home treat me like the same person I was when I was waiting tables.
Aaron Schock
What I’m saying is individuals have better ideas if they’re connected to rich, diverse networks of other individuals. If you put yourself in an environment with lots of different perspectives, you yourself are going to have better, sharper, more original ideas. It’s not that the network is smart.
Steven Johnson
For me, I was somebody who was a smart young guy who didn’t do very well in school. The basic system of education, I didn’t fit in; my intelligence was elsewhere.
Bruce Springsteen
Ice T was just a pleasure to work with. He was a smart gentleman.
Judd Nelson
Being with someone who is smart and gives good advice adds tremendously wonderful elements to your life.
Patricia Cornwell
Just really, really believe in what you’re trying to do. Don’t let people alter that. Let people advise you and lead you down paths to make smart business decisions. But trust your instinct and trust that overwhelming drive that made you put all your dreams and everything on the line.
Luke Bryan
The poor North has much to do with slavery. It staggers under its load and smarts under its lash.
Gerrit Smith
Teenagers are extremely smart, and if they think for even a second that an author is ‘writing down’ to them, or mimicking their voice poorly, or condescending to them in any way, they will throw the book across the room.
Ransom Riggs
You can be plain and smart, or pretty and smart. You can even be plain and dumb! You just have to be yourself.
Ashley Tisdale
The American people overwhelmingly want to see smart policy that secures our families, our borders, and our economy.
Luis Gutierrez
If you want to ask about my drug problem, go ask my big, fat, smart, ten pound daughter, she’ll answer any questions you have about it.
Courtney Love
I always felt that I was, you know, smart. I just didn’t have a lot of the resources that everybody else had… It was tough for me to catch up.
Michael Oher
There’s a great appetite for smart television. Every day I get up and there are interesting stories I want to do.
Charlie Rose
‘TV Guide’ is smart to aim toward women. More women will go there to find out what’s on – just like when guys won’t ask for directions, a woman will break out the map.
Kate Flannery
Mostly I’ve never let record companies become involved with my music, which was a very smart thing that my first manager Dave Robinson did, to keep them out of it.
Graham Parker
Nobody knew they needed a smart phone, an automobile, or even a cheeseburger from a drive through window.
Michael Gerber
Consumers don’t need to be forced to pay billions for so-called smart technology to know how to reduce their utility bills. We know to turn down the heat or air conditioning and shut off the lights.
Lisa Madigan
In the developed world, we are surrounded by electronics – from the computers on our desks to the smart phones in our pockets to the thermostats in our homes to our data in the virtual cloud.
Joe Kaeser
Don’t dumb it down. The audience is smart and gets what you are doing.
Bruce Paltrow
Information flow is what the Internet is about. Informa

Information flow is what the Internet is about. Information sharing is power. If you don’t share your ideas, smart people can’t do anything about them, and you’ll remain anonymous and powerless.
Vint Cerf
Work smart. Get things done.
Susan Wojcicki
People don’t like when you point out to them and remind them that they’re not very smart.
Brian McKnight
Just because I don’t have a college degree doesn’t mean I am not smart!
Emma Stone
My guess is more reporters probably vote Democrat than Republican – just because I think reporters are smart.
Jerry Springer
Everybody can be smart.
Jose Mourinho
My mom always said, ‘Marry someone smarter than yourself, Katee, because No. 1, you’re not that smart. And No. 2, then you’ll have smart babies.’
Katee Sackhoff
Every time a U.S.A. Today slides underneath my door, it’s like they’re saying, ‘Hey, you’re not that smart, right?’
Hasan Minhaj
Engineering serendipity is this idea that we can help people come across unexpected but helpful connections at a better than random rate. And in some ways it’s based on trying to reassess this notion of serendipitous as lucky – to think of serendipitous as smart.
Ethan Zuckerman
Smart writers really take their time in investing in backstories and characters. As a viewer, you have to invest in them and love them before you can chip away at what’s going on more on a deeper level with secondary characters.
Liza Weil
My mother is very, very smart and commands respect because she has a lot of respect for herself.
Jared Leto
I was never into smart college boy music.
Gene Ween
The dissemination of advanced implantable technology will likely be just as ruthlessly democratic as the ailments it is destined to treat. Meaning that, someday soon, we may have a new class of very smart, very fast people – yesterday’s disabled and elderly.
Daniel H. Wilson
The dumb-manager theory of business problems just didn’t hold water for me. There had to be a deeper reason why smart people would make decisions that lead to failure.
Clayton M. Christensen
Odds are you know some narcissists. Odds are they’re smart, confident and articulate. They make you laugh, they make you think; the first time you met, they probably charmed the pants off of you – perhaps even literally. The odds are also that that spell didn’t last.
Jeffrey Kluger
The biggest mistake I’ve seen people make with their careers is, when they’re good, after two or three years – and they happen to be smart – they announce that they’re going out to start their own firm.
Stephen A. Schwarzman
The way my brain processes information is quite odd. I mean, I have Attention Deficit Disorder and another learning disability I can’t even spell. I don’t even have a high school diploma. I’m smart, but you can’t prove it on paper.
Ron White
I love reality TV shows like ‘Big Brother’ where it’s smart game to vote off the strong competitors, especially early on to give the other people a fighting chance. From a game stance, it’s totally acceptable.
Manila Luzon
I care about this state… and I feel a responsibility to get things done. If we stay healthy and play smart we can be a playoff team. I think we’re on the right track.
Steve Mariucci
Most of the shows I want to do I’m not smart enough to figure out how to watch.
David Spade
‘Getting smart on crime’ does not mean reducing sentences or punishments for crimes.
Kamala Harris
Often, in the real world, it’s not the smart that get ahead but the bold.
Robert Kiyosaki
The America that I think most Americans would want, most economists on the right or left would want, is one in which a smart, ambitious, hardworking person without a huge amount of resources has a pretty good shot, in the end, of beating out a less smart, less ambitious, less hardworking rich person.
Adam Davidson
I never cut class. I loved getting A’s, I liked being smart. I liked being on time. I thought being smart is cooler than anything in the world.
Michelle Obama
When you’re on a series, it’s tough to go on and do something else afterward. If you’re smart, save your money and you can wait out the bad times, until something else comes along.
Michael Dorn
You’re not too smart, are you? I like that in a man.
Lawrence Kasdan
Pigeons are gentle and smart and have complex social relationships. Their hearing and vision are both excellent.
Ingrid Newkirk
I think smart is sexy. I like smart people. People that are comfortable with themselves I think is very sexy. My cat is really sexy.
Gina Gershon
I don’t think women should look like costumes. I don’t think they should look like fashion victims. I think these (clothes) are for women that want to look sexy. They want to look smart.
Ralph Lauren
