Robert Greenwald
Newscorp has always been, for us, very easy to work with and they respect our opinions and let us run the site we wanted to. And, in fact, they wanted to keep us on.

When I hold a gun, I know how to be sensible about it. I’m not holding it to wild out or just to shoot somebody because I’m mad at him.

Ali Liebegott
The British establishment sold its soul long ago and welcomes any foreign villain, crook and gangster that has dirty money to invest in the UK, buying luxury homes to fuel the upward spiral of house prices.

Atul Gawande
The only real indulgence was buying a house. That was a pretty big step.

I look at my annual budgets for everything and anything, and I look to see where I can save the most money on those items. Saving 30% to 50% buying in bulk – replenishable items from toothpaste to soup, or whatever I use a lot of – is the best guaranteed return on investment you can get anywhere.
Mark Cuban
Since the littoral combat ship plays a vital role, we want to make sure we’re buying the correct version.

Krystle D’Souza
I certainly could’ve made a lot more money buying cheap ingredients, and people might not have been able to tell the difference. That was never a part of the calculus. It was not part of my DNA.
Steve Ells
Whatever the Victorians did right in England, we need to resuscitate over here. In the late 19th century, the entire English population were propagandised into buying into a certain code of morals. I would be happy if we could emulate that in some way in America.
Charles Murray
I was at the grocery store just buying lemons, and a person turns to me and says, ‘Hey, you’re the kid in the horror movie, right? Can I get a picture?’ It was really random.
Milly Shapiro

Emilia Wickstead
I went from buying my own condominium and a car for myself when I was 17 on ‘The Facts of Life’ to not being able to pay my rent. I was at the unemployment office all the time. I had to sell my record collection just to make ends meet. And then I started getting these voice-over jobs.
Pamela Adlon
Art is not an investment. Art is something you buy because you are financially solvent enough to give yourself a pleasure of living with great works rather than having to just see them in museums. People who are buying art at the top of the market as an investment are foolish.
Arne Glimcher
The music industry used to be able to control a single dance on the very smallest level of when people are supposed to hear it, and when they’re supposed to start liking it, and when they’re supposed to start buying it. And that’s trashed, you know, that big machine that takes control and works albums for a long period.
I think buying shoes is intimidating for a guy. Sitting down taking your shoes off, for men, it’s too much. But you should never be intimidated by anything.

If you keep on buying things made by child slaves in such conditions, you are equally responsible for the perpetration of slavery.

Steve Ells

Iggy Azalea
I find Facebook absolutely fascinating because I don’t think there’s ever been any one source that had so much information about each of us – who we talk to, who our friends are, what books we read, what we’re buying, what movies we saw, what our travel is.
Rick Smolan
The price of a commodity will never go to zero. When you invest in commodities futures, you’re not buying a piece of paper that says you own an intangible piece of company that can go bankrupt.
Jim Rogers
You gotta keep working, baby. You gotta work. I got kids, I got bills, I like nice things – always buying cars and watches. I’m a sneaker-head.
When I met T-Boz and Left Eye, they were buying jeans that were a size 38. Three little cute girls dressed like boys was cool back then. Our style was cartoonish but fly at the same time.
Rozonda Thomas
I’m always buying glasses and teacups. I have way too many to use, but I just love them, particularly anything vintage.
Katie Lee
I don’t think of the future too much. I am not very practical, I am a very emotional woman. My heart rules my life, not the mind. I don’t crave anything apart from buying a really good car. I am not greedy for anything in life.
Roopa Ganguly
Recession-resistant development produces things people need. Unsustainable growth churns out tinsel products that consumers have to be seduced into buying – until times get tough, when they quickly give them up.
Donella Meadows
Whether there is spec buying or not is not the greatest factor in the high cost of pharmaceuticals.
Stewart Rahr
Anybody who plays the stock market not as an insider is like a man buying cows in the moonlight.
Daniel Drew
Buying my new house in the country wasn’t about showing off or being something I’m not, like Madonna when she turned into the country lass with her tweeds on.
Craig Revel Horwood
You know, when I eat three peas, I’m pregnant. When I visit a city, I’m buying a house.
Vanessa Paradis
I started buying ill, obscure records, and then I saw Portishead and Air live, and my mouth was on the ground.
Adrian Younge
We work very closely with HSN’s buying team, to ensure that our products and demonstrations are as exciting, educational and as inspirational as possible.
Sara Davies
Buying a house is not an overnight decision, and people can wait for 3 to 6 months.
Ajay Piramal
Buying coffee on the street instead of in a Starbucks is the poor man’s way to get rich. In other words, you will never get rich by scratching out ten cents from your dollar.
James Altucher
Federal election laws bar candidates from the ‘personal use’ of campaign donations – a ban meant to stop candidates from buying things unrelated to their runs for office. If a purchase is a result of campaign activity, the government allows it.
David Fahrenthold
I’ve picked a camera up a few times. I remember buying my first camera when I was about 18 and really going wild with it, as you do as an 18-year-old, especially when you’re in college.
Aneurin Barnard
I have three very simple principles. I don’t like conflicts of interest; they should be eliminated or disclosed. I believe in transparency, that people have to really not just know but understand what they’re buying and selling. And that you have to have enough capital to back up your promises.
Eric Schneiderman
I would say television is a focus, and expanding our channel platform is a focus. As for buying libraries, when catalogs are going down in value, the answer is that it’s all about price!
Jon Feltheimer
I still think buying a home is the best investment any

I still think buying a home is the best investment any individual can make.
John Paulson
My fans are buying the DNA of Dave.
Dave Pelzer
Buy less. Choose well. Make it last. Quality, not quantity. Everybody’s buying far too many clothes.
Vivienne Westwood
You shouldn’t take a customer who’s buying an album, who’s happy buying an album, and try to tell them that what they’re doing is wrong.
Jimmy Iovine
I have always liked knives. Then somebody gave me one. Then somebody gave me another one. Then I liked having them and started buying them. I started finding ones I liked, ones with funky blades.
Tim Duncan
As I can testify, living in a foreign country takes you way out of your comfort zone. It’s the little things, like ordering food in a different language, buying petrol or learning to drive on the other side of the road, but they all add up to making you a more rounded, educated person.
Eniola Aluko
Buying books would be a good thing if one could also buy the time to read them in: but as a rule the purchase of books is mistaken for the appropriation of their contents.
Arthur Schopenhauer
When I was 18 years old and playing the drums, I never thought that I would have a website and that people will be buying my autographed picture and paying money for it.
Frank Vincent
I started buying bits of broken porcelain. I furnished our first flat with pieces of ‘junk.’ Some of that ‘junk’ is now worth an awful lot of money. What I was calling ‘junk’ in the ’60s people wouldn’t call ‘junk’ now.
Judith Miller
I didn’t know that buying expensive paint was a good thing and important. I always used whatever is cheapest, which I’m into, too.
I’m not really concerned so much with the industry, except in country music, as long as our fans keep coming to the shows and keep buying the records and we keep having success on country radio.
Jay DeMarcus
I spent 23 years in the military. I think I’m in a good position to make those judgments on what is necessary in the military and what is not necessary, without buying a lot of things that would not really add to our security.
John Glenn
‘The X-Files’ was a hard sell because people didn’t know what it was. The network didn’t understand what it was that they were buying, and at the beginning, they wanted us to have closure. They wanted us to put the cuffs on the bad guy at the end of each episode.
Chris Carter
I’m always astonished when I go into Barnes & Noble at the number of people buying books, of course, but also at the variety of books they do buy and the extent to which they are not the big bestsellers.
Michael Korda
I’m a writer. The more I act, the more resistance I have to it. If you accept work in a movie, you accept to be entrapped for a certain part of time, but you know you’re getting out. I’m also earning enough to keep my horses, buying some time to write.
Sam Shepard
I’m not against people buying clothes; I think clothes are wonderful, and I’m very materialistic myself – but there’s a way of finding a compromise. I just think we can buy less and pay more, to make sure people aren’t being exploited.
Lily Cole
Thanks to the social web, we can share and trade to use a whole universe of things we once had to buy ourselves. From cars to solar panels, people are realizing they can reap the benefits of ownership without the expense and hassle of buying.
Lynn Jurich
Men have been buying my women’s coats for years.
Issey Miyake
Can we all please – I don’t want anybody buying cryptocurrencies, okay? Stop it. Enough already. Or buy Bitcoin, don’t buy Ethereum.
Jensen Huang
Jon Miller would be amazing for Yahoo because he is extremely good at building display advertising businesses and buying young startups.
Jason Calacanis
Country fans need to support country music by buying albums and concert tickets for traditional artists or the music will just fade away. And that would be really sad.
George Jones
It’s very difficult to run a business when you’re buying something for $5 and selling it for $10.
Danielle Colby
Artists need a lot of collectors, all kinds of collectors, buying their art.
Charles Saatchi
I was kind of ashamed of my bourgeois family as a teenager, I guess – I had dreadlocks, shopped in thrift stores and pretended I had no money. At that time, I would have spat on a girl who was buying Yves Saint Laurent.
Lou Doillon
I always told myself I’d never be like my mother if I had a kid, but here I am, the same thing. I don’t know how this happened. The same type of disciplining, the same kind of forcing him to perform in front of people, not buying him things when I could afford whatever he wanted – it’s crazy!
Jo Koy
Studies have found that preparing your own food is usually healthier and less expensive than buying fast food. But most people just don’t have the time.
Eric Schlosser
I love buying things. I could be one of those crazy hoarders.
Anna Chancellor
I don’t want any country buying up Brazil, but we will do business with all countries, and China is an exceptional partner.
Jair Bolsonaro
I had to restrain myself from buying a book on 19th-century fruit knives.
Susanna Clarke
I’ve been working with my stylist for a long time, Cece Liu. We’ve gone from buying and returning clothing, to this point where maybe finally a designer will dress me without me having to buy and return it.
Michelle Zauner
The art world is never going to be popular like the NFL, but more people are buying art and I think that’s cushioning, to a great extent, our art-market cycles.
Larry Gagosian
I spend most of my time thinking about things like laun

I spend most of my time thinking about things like laundry and buying stationery supplies.
Wallace Shawn
With all this talk of Going Green, Buying Green, Living Green, and Green being the new whatever, I’ve come to realize that, although we had no green, my grandmother was actually the ‘greenest’ person I’ve ever known.
Joy Bryant
I picked and co-wrote the songs that if I was a guy who would be spending my hard-earned money buying an album I would want to hear.
Bo Bice
Broken! Busted! Everybody has something to repair. Before buying new, let Mighty Putty fix it for you.
Billy Mays
I’m always buying nice watches for my husband – Bentley Breitlings.
Bonnie Tyler
So, where are the robots? We’ve been told for 40 years already that they’re coming soon. Very soon they’ll be doing everything for us. They’ll be cooking, cleaning, buying things, shopping, building. But they aren’t here. Meanwhile, we have illegal immigrants doing all the work, but we don’t have any robots.
Hod Lipson
No one stopped buying I.B.M. because Tom Watson wasn’t there, but they stopped buying Elizabeth Arden because she wasn’t there.
Leonard Lauder
Before you begin designing or buying anything, you need to get real and ask yourself: What do you really want to use this room for? What do you want to do in this room but can’t now?
Nate Berkus
Buying books is probably my biggest vice when I travel.
Katie Melua
Oh my God – this is scary and sad all at the same time. I literally dream about buying my own groceries. Swear to God. Because it is something that is real and normal.
When I say dirt-poor, I mean Mom made maybe $25,000 a year. I remember buying milk with food stamps. Vividly. So, growing up, I was the minority.
Jason Sehorn
You don’t realize how hard it is to live on your own. But there’s no mom to do your laundry, and make you dinner and to do things for you, and you don’t think about little things like buying paper towels and salt.
Emma Roberts
I’m a professional with very little time on my hands. I’ve got better things to be doing than buying a pint of milk.
Bugzy Malone
GIS started on mainframe computers; we could get one map every five to 10 hours, and if we made a mistake, it could take longer. In the early ’90s, when people started buying PCs, we migrated to desktop software.
Jack Dangermond
Alimony is like buying hay for a dead horse.
Groucho Marx
I started off in 1993 with one lorry. I wasn’t one of those guys buying a business and gearing it up.
Sean Quinn
A person buying ordinary products in a supermarket is in touch with his deepest emotions.
John Kenneth Galbraith
One valuable lesson I learned is that buying cheap is very important. Buying without debt is also very important. Leverage is your enemy.
David Lichtenstein
If you go to a venture firm, what you’re doing is you’re buying money from them in exchange for equity. They have a commodity that they’re selling and they have to differentiate themselves.
Naval Ravikant
I can’t give money away to buy listeners. I can’t pay listeners off with phones or food stamps or anything. I can’t come by my audience by buying it.
Rush Limbaugh
Millennials aren’t buying cars anymore. They don’t want to drive. They don’t want to own these cars. They don’t want that inconvenience.
Travis Kalanick
Most people who are selling their mineral rights, this is a once-in-a-lifetime transaction. The people who are buying, the landmen who are coming in, do it every day. So there’s a little inequity there about knowledge.
Mike DeWine
Imagine your family finally making it from nothing to something, and finally getting things going, and finally buying a beautiful house and taking care of your children – and the next day, it’s completely all gone. Zero. Boom. Flat broke. So that’s when I had to man up.
DJ Khaled
The buying and selling of women, girls and boys is a frightening modern day form of slavery that must be stopped.
Chris Hansen
Since my mid-20s I have put more time than I would like to admit into keeping a youthful appearance. Most of that time was spent just buying random products, hoping some of them might actually work! Sadly that method resulted in a huge amount of time and money wasted.
Nick Viall
As a car lover, I ask myself, ‘What am I going to be buying in the future? Will it be a boring, underpowered, dorky car because the government tells me I shouldn’t pollute? Or do I come up with a cool-looking, sexy dream car that is also part of the future?’
Henrik Fisker
The ultimate goal is to be the leader in mobile commerce. I’m not just saying revenues; if you’re trying to find a good experience of buying something on your phone, I want you to automatically think, ‘Boxed has one of the best, if not the best, experiences of buying something on your mobile device.’
Chieh Huang
Real estate was one of the first things I was doing. I kinda like mistakenly fell into that. I bought a house early in my career, and in my head, it was like, if everything goes wrong, I own this one house, you know… As I started doing concerts and more concerts, I started buying more houses.
Yo Gotti
‘Independents’ – the industry term for companies that have more capital and know-how than the typical ‘wildcatter’ – can grow either by exploring and finding reserves or by buying a company that already has them.
Tahl Raz
We built a market at IEX that does not sell certain types of technology advantages to high-frequency traders, and as a result, the high-frequency traders that didn’t rely on buying those advantages trade on IEX.
Brad Katsuyama
It was exciting putting hundreds of millions of dollars to work buying and building wind farms in Texas.
Lynn Good
I was raised in California, so this whole New York wint

I was raised in California, so this whole New York winter thing is completely new for me. I’ve already justified buying seven coats!
Blake Lively
I used to carbo load. But then I ran my first marathon, actually on a whim. All I could think of was that I needed protein. I remember going to the grocery store and buying one of those roasted chickens. I remember downing a bunch of that and, yes, I had some carbs, but that’s what I felt I needed.
Summer Sanders
Buying reviews of ebooks that include downloads is a well-known way to ‘juice’ an ebook’s sales rank and attract new readers.
Andrew Shaffer
Everyone’s talking about how no one is buying records any more, but to me it’s quite logical. In the 1990s, music was so hardcore-marketed to a certain group of people that I think a lot of kids felt taken advantage of.
One of the challenges of buying local advertising is, how do you know if it worked? How do you know if it’s got value? We’re moving toward an e-commerce experience for local, an Amazon-like experience for local.
Jeremy Stoppelman
The real story in housing will be a recovery in the economy that will drive a recovery in housing, When people are working, when there are more jobs, more households forming and people go back to buying cars, they’re going to want their apartments and homes. And that’s when you’ll start to see a recovery in home prices.
Jamie Dimon
Whenever I made money I invested in myself… I bought whatever I needed to make my career better. I never really spent money on other stuff, like buying expensive cars.
We still live in a world where if you have nuclear weapons, you are buying power; you are buying insurance against attack.
Mohamed ElBaradei
The thought of buying a gift and wrapping is too much of an effort for me.
Gauri Khan
I’m very smart, and I have a great team of people around me investing my money. I’m not buying gold – yet.
Irina Shayk
The Federal Reserve can only buy Treasuries and agencies, and moreover quantitative easing typically involves buying longer-term Treasuries and agencies in terms of bills, for example.
Ben Bernanke
I like eating out. I like buying beautiful paintings and being surrounded by beautiful things. I have to finance that life. I can barely afford a pension scheme because I don’t make enough money.
Andrew Motion
Being a hungry artist, you don’t have the luxury of buying whatever you want. There were years of me doing a lot of odd jobs, this and that just to make ends meet.
Eric Nam
It is in all our interests that the government, when buying goods or services, pays the lowest price.
Jacob Rees-Mogg
When you’re buying a pair of TOMS, if you don’t feel like you’re part of a community, then I’ve failed.
Blake Mycoskie
For me, I’ve always been intimidated by the computer coming from the era of record industry and record stores and buying records and looking at album covers, waiting in line for records when they came out and then ultimately being successful in a band where we recording pre-computer era.
Tim Commerford
If I was a bajillionaire, I would spend a lot of time at Barneys just buying all kinds of great things all the time. I would have so many black cashmeres it would be out of control. I like the way nice things feel very much.
Natasha Lyonne
I came to terms with not fitting in a long time ago. I never really fitted in. I don’t want to fit in. And now people are buying into that.
Alexander McQueen
Every time you drop the price by a factor of two, you roughly get a 10 times pickup of the number of people who will seriously consider buying it.
Astro Teller
The way you support farmers is by shopping and buying raw ingredients.
Michael Pollan
Let me tell you, one of the most proud aspects of my career was buying Indymac during the financial crisis.
Steve Mnuchin
Good owners aren’t buying franchises because they think it’s a good economic deal. They’re buying franchises because they’re a huge fan of the sport and they want to be a steward of that team. If they just do it because of a good economic deal, they’re going to be bad owners.
Michael G. Rubin
Strategy is buying a bottle of fine wine when you take a lady out for dinner. Tactics is getting her to drink it.
Frank Muir
If you have a choice between buying something in Vietnam or China or buying something made in Virginia, why not buy it from people in Virginia? A lot of times, it’s not much more expensive or may even be less.
Beth Macy
Certainly there are things in life that money can’t buy, but it’s very funny – Did you ever try buying them without money?
Ogden Nash
I believe singing should be like being an actor. People shouldn’t have any problem buying an actor being in a comedy or a drama or a horror film. That should be the same way with music.
Darren Criss
Unfortunately, in collective bargaining one party or the other too often tries to gain an advantage – a bargain, like buying something in a store for less than it is worth.
Charles E. Wilson
I’m very much involved in art. I started buying art a few years ago and really like the work of T.C. Cannon, who is a native American artist. Then I was introduced to Soviet-era Russian impressionism and started collecting that, especially Gely Korzhev.
Ronnie Dunn
People get surprised when they see you out buying a DVD at Best Buy like somebody else should be doing it for you or something! They’re like, ‘What are you doing your grocery shopping for?’ Well, ’cause I’m starving!
Dale Earnhardt Jr.
I kept buying bucket hats. Next thing I knew, I felt like I didn’t look right without one.
Schoolboy Q
I have actually found myself buying up more and more old analogue gear. I have this strange obsession with old drum machines.
I get bored of carrying the same bag often. So, I end u

I get bored of carrying the same bag often. So, I end up buying more.
Anita Hassanandani Reddy
I’m a firm believer that all this packaged stuff that Americans are buying up in gobs is making them fatter.
Michael Symon
Invest your money safely. Avoid the risky lure of spectacular returns; go for an investment that cannot lose its value. This is why I have put all my spare cash into buying not shares, but thousands of penny chews.
Dominic Holland
Kanye is going to have to decide early whether or not he’s a Baby Bjorn guy, because the minute you put on that Baby Bjorn, there’s no turning back. It’s like buying a minivan. You lose a little piece of yourself when you get that Baby Bjorn.
Willie Geist
I’m addicted to ‘Lonely Planet’ guides. Naturally, I’ll buy one whenever I take a trip somewhere, but it goes beyond that: I’ve begun buying them for cities and countries I just hope to visit one day.
Lauren Weisberger
Frankly, people buying a home to let should not be squeezing out families who can’t afford a home to buy.
George Osborne
Besides buying a mansion or something, everything I wanted I always got. I’m just ready to invest it and save it. Otherwise, life can hit you, but you can’t go back to working at Home Depot. That’s why I always just be stacking.
French Montana
Only now that I’m a mum can I fully understand the terrible pressure parents feel buying presents for their kids. My mum had four children plus all of the extended family and she not only had to feed us all but she bought presents for everyone, too.
Mel Giedroyc
My children’s favourite thing is to con me into buying them ice-cream if there’s not too big a queue at our local gelataria, Messina.
Catherine Martin
The Democratic Party now is an extension of this poisonous identity politics on college campuses and to be honest, I can only hope it continues because American by and large are not buying it.
Heather Mac Donald
Whether Congress decides to block GMO labeling is about more than the right to know what we’re buying and eating. It’s also about consumer confusion.
Mike Pompeo
I didn’t want to become a chocolatier among others, buying ready-to-use couverture. I wanted to take the same approach I follow in my cuisine: putting the product first, revealing the authentic taste of the products.
Alain Ducasse
I’m not a consumer. I hate buying clothes. I don’t have a mobile. I just don’t need things. I don’t like things.
Yann Martel
On the morning, Daddy and I get up at six o’clock because Christmas trees must be bought in the dark. We walk to the other end of town, as the big harbour is just the right setting for buying a Christmas tree. We spend hours choosing, looking at every branch suspiciously. It’s always cold.
Tove Jansson
If you’re following candidates in a campaign, you get on their plane, and what they’re generally doing is they’re dividing the cost of that charter flight by the number of reporters they’re carrying aboard. In effect, the press is buying them that campaign flight.
Richard Ben Cramer
So much value has been lost in the housing market that people are now buying. If there’s any activity in the housing market, it’s because values have plummeted to such depths that the 47% can now afford to live in a government-purchased house, or something like that.
Rush Limbaugh
I have a weakness for watches. I have to stop myself buying more.
Tom Jones
But if people are buying the products, naturally they’re gonna use them.
Oscar Robertson
My family have been wool merchants since the 19th century. My first job, aged 18, was buying fabric from my father to produce and sell ties. But I was also at university in Milan.
Pier Luigi Loro Piana
My granddaddy on my momma’s side, he was a romantic. He loved love songs. Every Valentine’s Day, I remember him buying a red carnation for my grandmomma, my momma and my sister. That was something you could count on every year.
Josh Turner
When you’re a kid that’s spent all your pocket money buying Spider-Man comics, and then as an adult, you’re in the Marvel Universe, and you get to meet Stan Lee – it’s wonderful.
Benedict Wong
I love reading fashion magazines, buying handbags, the usual things – but when you’re in the moment and focusing on setting up the car, how you look is so irrelevant.
Susie Wolff
Fiction writing, and the reading of it, and book buying, have always been the activities of a tiny minority of people, even in the most-literate societies.
Paul Theroux
I never thought that buying supplements and vitamins, it was going to hurt anybody’s feelings.
David Ortiz
I just want to thank all my fans for their loyalty and support-for coming out to the shows and buying the CDs.
Edgar Winter
When buying shares, ask yourself, would you buy the whole company?
Rene Rivkin
I feel like if I’m going to give you a book about my dad, then I really want to give you my dad, because he is interesting and he is funny and if you’re buying a book about him, I don’t want you to have to sit through stuff that’s not him.
Justin Halpern
I was happy buying and selling gold in bars, as it is easier and profitable.
Raj Kundra
When you’re doing a single-camera show, it’s more buying into a level of reality. I think a sitcom, a four-camera show, doesn’t require that so much. I think with a film show, you just need the characters to grow.
Darren Star
That’s what I paint, I paint people. They’re portraits, but you won’t always be pleased with the way you look in my paintings. Which is fine, I guess. Unless you’re buying it, and it’s of your kid!
Jemima Kirke
I think we did a great job of putting together a program that would have made good e-books available had people been buying e-books in any real numbers.
Thomas Perry
I love getting out of the Q train at Union Square. It's

I love getting out of the Q train at Union Square. It’s such a mix of people, like a party. There’s always an errand you can do along there, whether it’s picking up contacts or buying poker chips.
Colson Whitehead
My kids wouldn’t dream of buying a newspaper – and we are a newspaper household.
Andrew Marr
I’m more user-experience and technology-minded. James is good at knowing what the user is going to buy, and the creative world he’s buying them into.
Alexa Hirschfeld
I find any kind of ‘organizing’ very difficult. And that has irksome consequences when it comes to books, since I’ve often wound up buying books twice because I couldn’t find what I already have in all my mess.
Herta Muller
Every day, families in the United States face the stark choice between a roof over their heads and food on the table. Buying health insurance, owning a home, and saving up for college are just too far out of their reach.
Chris Van Hollen
A lot of people think that reptiles don’t feel, and they do. I think everyone should keep in mind what it is they are buying and if it is really worth it to them.
Laura Vandervoort
After all, the chief business of the American people is business. They are profoundly concerned with producing, buying, selling, investing and prospering in the world.
Calvin Coolidge
I love buying gifts for people who I am close to as I know their likes and dislikes.
Shibani Dandekar
Tokyo – still – offers the most tightly integrated infrastructure, where smooth, technology-driven experiences take place when engaging in everyday actions, such as verifying personal identity, paying for goods, and buying tickets.
Jan Chipchase
I have regular peels and Botox. It’s something I’ll always do. People redecorate their homes every few years, and I see this as no different. Changing my face is like buying a new sofa.
Pete Burns
The biggest mistake we made at in term of infrastructure was buying servers.
Matt Mullenweg
People think that buying something for their home which is up-to-date is chic, but often it’s a cliche. I call people who simply give clients the current ‘thing’ stylists not decorators.
Nicholas Haslam
There used to be rather serious firewalls between the artist and the buying public – the gallery, the publisher. And technology demolishes that wall and basically says, ‘Self-promote or die.’ And that is a bad head for any sort of artist to be forced into.
Jonathan Franzen
Buying a home is exciting, but it’s also a big financial commitment.
Drew Scott
I’m hands-on with everything. I approve the designs of everything we do because that’s my brand that people are buying. I want it to look good.
Cole Swindell
The shirt thing just started one day when I bought one with a really interesting pattern, and people laughed at it, so I thought, ‘I’ll keep buying daft shirts with flowers on.’
James May
Perhaps I should just motivate myself by buying trophy cabinets – so I have to fill them.
Adrian Lewis
I love everything about food; if you took it away you would be depriving me of one of my greatest pleasures. I love the whole process of it – buying it, cooking it, eating it, talking about it, talking over it.
Holly Willoughby
I want attractive stocks that will benefit from persistent institutional buying pressure.
Louis Navellier
The only thing that gives my mom pleasure in life is buying stuff off QVC, and I’m gonna pay those bills. I paid my mom’s house off. My wife’s family needs help? I’m gonna take care of that.
Forrest Griffin
If stock market experts were so expert, they would be buying stock, not selling advice.
Norman Ralph Augustine
I hate buying stylish clothes because I get dressed up so rarely that they inevitably go out of style before I can wear them again. So I rent them.
Molly Yeh
You work with people who are obsessive about shopping, obsessive about owning things and buying things, like this purchase is going to make them happy. And you want to say to them, ‘You know, no amount of real estate is gonna fill that void.’
David LaChapelle
Museums are interesting. This place where we’re almost buying admission to take a break from our lives.
Abbi Jacobson
People who get to express their voice are paid by the people who make profit from it. So they’re going to make you believe you have to spend your money buying these products otherwise you won’t be happy. This is really wrong. Especially the implication it carries.
Michel Gondry
Tweeting about objects means I don’t need to bid on them, which is a blessing. Buying something is a way of saying, ‘Look at this!’ So is tweeting. So, I guess, is writing fiction.
Elizabeth McCracken
I am actually not a big believer in buying properties.
Richa Chadha
Finally, I would like to remind record companies that they have a cultural responsibility to give the buying public great music. Milking a trend to death is not contributing to culture and is ultimately not profitable.
Tony Visconti
When you buy me, you are buying a Ferrari. If you drive a Ferrari, you put premium petrol in the tank, you hit the motorway, and you step on the gas.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Because we in the mainland didn’t have a youth. We were all busy being hard-working in our youthful years. We were studying hard, working hard, getting married and buying a flat, and striving to give the best education to our children.
Zhao Wei
We discussed buying a defender. The view was the priority at that time given the way we were playing was that we needed support up front and that is why we bought Louis Saha.
David Gill
There are plenty of people I've seen and thought that p

There are plenty of people I’ve seen and thought that person is funny, or that person is really talented, and they’ve got something, but maybe the buying public doesn’t see the same thing I see, or the stars don’t align in the right way for them.
Wyatt Cenac
I’m not buying a boat because of writing skits.
Jason Sudeikis
I find buying a bicycle is a great way to stay in touch with people.
Jan Chipchase
I have the soundtrack for ‘A Clockwork Orange,’ which is kind of cool. I guess I don’t really end up buying a lot of modern soundtracks. Another soundtrack I love is from a French movie called ‘Betty Blue.’ it has some really melancholy piano work.
James Mercer
There’s a whole generation of women who never really heard the word investment before, when it came to fashion. They’ve been buying things because they were cheap.
Michael Kors
Buying into the hype can get you into a lot of trouble, believing your own press.
Philip Bailey
Buying from a local farmer can mean that he makes a two-hour extra truck drive, which can damage the environment more than a bunch of bananas on a boat.
Tyler Cowen
We can’t have investors buying four apartments while young couples struggle to raise another 5,000 shekels for a home. I appeal to investors: Think about these young couples, and invest your money elsewhere.
Moshe Kahlon
Less is more. I truly believe in buying a few pieces with better construction.
Stacy London
Every generation of rock musician will understand that we wouldn’t be anywhere without the support of teenagers buying the records.
Roger Daltrey
I’m saving up to buy art. Nothing famous, but every time I’m in a new city I wander into galleries and dream about buying great pieces one day.
Nicola Formichetti
I’m interested only in buying land in my native Hawaii so that one day I can live there and have the space to rescue animals.
Marie Helvin
I’m mostly into buying art from friends. I like to keep it vague – just whatever I find intriguing.
Virgil Abloh
In our modern world of interdependent nations, hardly any state can wage war successfully without raising loans and buying war materials of every kind in the markets of other nations.
Arthur Henderson
One of the reasons so many people get burned in the market is because they start buying as they see prices going up.
Robert Kiyosaki
I’ve spent more money on my theatres since I bought them than I did buying them.
Cameron Mackintosh
I wasn’t a big Air Force 1 person until I started buying custom ones.
Loren Gray
I ended up buying a van to chuck all my fishing gear in because I couldn’t keep using my car.
Mark Noble
A lot of TV people buy more than one of an item, in case they spot or stain it, but I don’t like buying duplicates – it’s wasteful.
Martha Stewart
If you’re indexing to the S&P 500, you’re buying the most expensive names in the market.
James O’Shaughnessy
When you pay for something, it’s not just buying something from the store. You are actually supporting the political and economic structures that provide you with that good.
Severn Cullis-Suzuki
I read a lot of news online, but I like buying a paper because I’ll read an article I wouldn’t normally read. And more often than not, the articles that you don’t expect to care about are the ones that grab you.
Eddie Kaye Thomas
After one has been in prison, it is the small things that one appreciates: being able to take a walk whenever one wants, going into a shop and buying a newspaper, speaking or choosing to remain silent. The simple act of being able to control one’s person.
Nelson Mandela
My grandfather came to Canada from Romania just before the Second World War, already in debt after buying his boat ticket on borrowed dime.
Craig Kielburger
Our daily habits of driving, drilling, buying and supporting all of the economic benefits a free economy demands has cost us dearly, but none more so than for the people of Shishmaref.
Amy J. Berg
I once had a long relationship with a lady, and wherever I went in the world, if I saw something she would look great in, a gown or gloves or a ring, I always knew what color she liked most. I knew her size, what material she appreciated most, and I spent the whole time buying gifts for her. And I loved her very much.
Raymond Burr
I’m constantly buying records.
You don’t change the world by hiding in the woods, wearing a hair shirt, or buying indulgences in the form of ‘Save the Earth’ bumper stickers. You do it by articulating a vision for the future and pursuing it with all the ingenuity humanity can muster.
Alex Steffen
Christmas is my favorite holiday because you spend time with family. I love the decorations, the music, and buying gifts for people. Everything about Christmas is the best.
Jessica Sanchez
A lot of people use a smiley face when they write letters. But it’s this huge insane compulsion, like ‘I’m happy! I swear!’ I’m not buying it.
Nate Lowman
If you’re able to help some people and make them smile and make them realize that life is good, then that’s worth so much more than buying a pair of shoes.
Maria Sharapova
Buying new books supports the writer by providing both

Buying new books supports the writer by providing both a royalty and an audience; a writer whose book sells well has a better chance of selling another.
Celeste Ng
The first time I thought about buying my own clothes was the first time I had money to do so.
Brad Rutter
I remember when I realised, as a child, ‘That stuff on the TV about nuclear bombs is real! Why isn’t everyone running around shouting ‘Aaarrgghh’? Why are people still buying bicycle clips?’
Charlie Brooker
With consumers buying two smartphones for every desktop computer they purchase, the demands, challenges and opportunities of the mobile space are reshaping our assumptions about design and user behaviour.
Jeffrey Zeldman
I missed my roots, so I ended up buying a home in Kansas City.
Jack Sock
I’m happy to work until I’m 70 if I’m able to. Actually, I’m happy to keep writing as long as people keep buying my books.
Nick Earls
The biggest criticism would be buying clothes that are too big or trying too hard. I tend to like things a little leaner and more formfitting. I believe personal style often outweighs fashion. Just be yourself.
Simon Spurr
It’s not just buying the company. Sure, we picked the right companies, and we picked the right management and, most importantly, we’ve given them the right incentive to perform.
Henry Kravis
People always worry that buying tech products today carries a risk of obsolescence. Most of the time, that fear is overblown.
Walt Mossberg
Supplying fuel for a Mars expedition from the lunar surface is often suggested, but it’s hard to make it pay off – Moon bases are expensive, and just buying more rockets to launch fuel from Earth is relatively cheap.
Henry Spencer
Anyway, in the mid 80’s I was spending a fortune buying old Golden Age books from the late 30’s and 40’s and I was making personal appearances at a lot of sci fi and comic book conventions all around the country here so that I could find books for my collection.
Bill Mumy
My mum says, ‘Go with your first instinct,’ but this can lead to impulse buying!
Lindsay Lohan
I waste a lot of money buying the same pair of shoes.
Big Sean
I’m actually a fan of all of the EA Sports titles like ‘Tiger Woods,’ ‘Madden,’ and I’m really looking forward to buying ‘NBA Street V3.’
John Cena
This is the paradox of thrift: belt-tightening causes people to lose their jobs, because other people are not buying what they produce, so their debt burden rises rather than falls.
Robert J. Shiller
There were days when I was on the last $10 in my account, and I was freaking out about paying rent or buying groceries. Then you book a commercial, and you’re good for another three months.
Colin Egglesfield
Many people think that buying a fake product is harmless, but counterfeiting is estimated to result in annual losses of over $20 billion dollars to American companies.
Tory Burch
Christmas is more stressful with present buying and making sure everyone gets included, but Thanksgiving is really not that. I don’t ever really get stressed out about the food.
Sandra Lee
Every year in the Premier League, every team is improving. Every team is buying new players.
Emre Can
Don’t buy anything online that you’d laugh at buying in real life.
Emily Ratajkowski
For me, all collecting must be done out of the love of the art. That being said, investment knowledge is absolutely mandatory so that you are really buying what you think you are buying.
Tim Matheson
Coconut oil mixed with olive oil is what I put on my body every day; I put rose hip oil on my face. If my hair feels dry, instead of going and buying something filled with chemicals, I put egg whites or avocados or mayonnaise in my hair. I leave it on there for an hour or two and I wash it out.
Nikki Reed
I love the idea of not being able to afford something and just making your own version or buying a cheap knock-off instead.
The whole purpose of CAFE standards is to make cars more efficient that people are actually buying.
Scott Pruitt
I do feel kind of guilty sometimes ’cause, like, I could buy myself a $5,000 dress or a $3,000 dress, and I’m buying these things, but I’m knowing that my cousin need money for the rent. And then I gotta tell myself, ‘Stop feeling guilty. You worked for this.’
Cardi B
Rock and roll music – people want records. For me, it’s the whole thing – the package. I don’t get satisfaction from buying an MP3.
King Tuff
When I first went to Paris in 1965, I fell in love with the small, family-owned restaurants that existed everywhere then, as well as the markets and the French obsession with buying fresh food, often twice a day.
Alice Waters
I just think of me in a supermarket planning what I’m going to cook for the evening, and buying maybe a bottle of wine, getting excited about putting on my new CD. That to me is, it’s a lovely, nostalgic feeling. Everybody needs to eat and live and shop, after all.
Nadine Coyle
The China Rich seem to be spending on a scale that’s just beyond anything we’ve ever seen before. They are building and buying an insane amount of luxury residences around the world, commissioning huge flying palaces from Boeing, and paying ridiculous amounts for art.
Kevin Kwan
The joy of doing ‘Sandman’ was doing a comic and telling people, ‘No, it has an end,’ at a time when nobody thought you could actually get to the end and stop doing a comic that people were still buying just because you’d finished.
Neil Gaiman
This city has many public squares, in which are situated the markets and other places for buying and selling.
Hernan Cortes
Many investors make the mistake of buying high and sell

Many investors make the mistake of buying high and selling low while the exact opposite is the right strategy.
John Paulson
It’s honestly every time that I’m doing something, and every time I visit a station and hear my song on the radio and people buying my stuff, I’m like ‘Are you kidding me? This is insane!’
Jana Kramer
I haven’t done the milestoney things – getting married, buying a house, having children.
Eve Best
Millions of animals are euthanized every year because shelters can’t find homes for them. Buying animals from pet stores also tends to support puppy and cat mills, many of which have deplorable conditions for animals, which shouldn’t be tolerated.
Laura Mennell
It’s much more difficult running a business than buying one.
Martin Naughton
Buying a particular vintage because everyone tips it and then waiting for it to mature is like gambling. The thrill is in placing the bet. Once the race is run or the match is played, you’ll either win or lose. Until that happens, you’re caught in this wonderful, agonising sense of expectation.
Kenneth Cranham
As a child, I was always interested in building things. Instead of buying candy, I would purchase nails, which I used to construct things out of scrap wood. My mother always claimed that my spending my money on nails instead of on candy was why I was so skinny as a kid.
Robert H. Grubbs
At some point, the dollar has to give. You can’t just keep printing money, and monetizing debt, and buying bonds, without the dollar imploding.
Peter Schiff
It shouldn’t be easier for a company to get a tax break on buying another robot than training their employees to gain new skills for the modern economy.
Seth Moulton
Truth is, people like buying things for $0.99 and $1.99 for their digital devices. We know that from iTunes. We know that from the app store, and now we know that from publishing.
Jennifer Lee
Buying a home is a very emotional process. It’s important to remain rational and stick with your price limit while buying.
Scott McGillivray
You can cook a limited number of sous vide recipes in a beer cooler, but if the person you’re buying for wants to start cooking like the pros, they’ll need a dedicated circulator that’s designed to maintain the temperature of a water bath to within one degree.
J. Kenji Lopez-Alt
It’s super important that people use their significant buying power to pull companies like Ferrari and show them there is a market for sustainable fuel. So many other car companies would take notice if Ferrari made headway on this measure.
Petter Stordalen
I did throw a lot of eggs into one basket, as you do in your teenage years – ‘I am buying these records, I am wearing this’. I did quite a bit of that. You have to do it, wear your stupid shoes, wear your stupid hair.
Dylan Moran
The Fed’s buying is far more important to the market price of U.S. debt than any other economic variable. If the Fed stops buying, it doesn’t matter whether unemployment goes up or down. It doesn’t matter whether inflation is higher or lower. Its influence on the market is dominant.
Porter Stansberry
One of Britain’s big problems throughout history has been that we lust after consumer goods from elsewhere, but our friends overseas have been less enthusiastic about buying things we produce.
Kate Williams
The media try to make rank-and-file Americans feel guilty about buying a gun. The enemies of freedom demonize gun buyers and portray us as social lepers. But we know the truth. We know that responsible gun ownership exemplifies what is good and right about America.
Wayne LaPierre
There’s a lot of spaces that care about what kids are buying. There are a lot of spaces that care about what kids are watching. But there aren’t a lot of spaces that care about what kids are saying.
Daveed Diggs
When people pay taxes, they are buying a service and benefit for their community. Colorado Tax Tracks shows taxpayers what they pay and what they buy for their money.
Cary Kennedy
I have had big relationships. Three times in my life I have felt a special connection, but people talk about looking for love as if it’s just like walking into a Starbucks and buying a coffee when you feel like it. It’s rare, that special connection.
Cherie Lunghi
For me, Mother’s Day means giving undivided attention to my mother. It’s not about buying her luxurious stuff, it’s about giving her my complete attention when she is talking, discussing something, and I think it’s the best gift for her.
Meghana Raj
I ended up buying a restaurant. Already we had invested in a gas station and a metal products plant.
Esther Williams
‘Bradshaw’s’ is a lovely device for the time-travelling television presenter. I just hope that people buying it aren’t doing so with the intention of plotting a tour of 21st-century Europe. They’ll find quite a lot has changed since 1913.
Michael Portillo
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he’s buying.
Fran Lebowitz
Inequality saps the economy by draining the buying power of Americans whose incomes have stagnated, forcing them to rely on debt to fund education, housing, and health care.
George Packer
Buying a home today is a complex process, but that in no way excuses home buyers from their obligation for due diligence.
Henry Paulson
Instead of buying into the global agenda, which is using food as just industrial stuff, we would say we view food as biological, a living thing, that belongs in smaller communities.
Joel Salatin
If no one knows your book is out there, no one will think about buying it. It’s as simple as that.
M. J. Rose
Russia and China, when they were communist-like adversaries, they didn’t participate. They’re participating now in the world with us. They’re trading monetary instruments. We’re buying and selling goods back and forth, trading oil and so forth.
Wesley Clark
People are buying my life when they’re buying those records. I hate to sound bigheaded or something, but that’s the reality of it. Suddenly, everything you’ve been doing means something.
Peter Frampton
I mean, I love buying albums, I’m obsessed, but now you just click ‘add’, don’t you? And when do you actually listen to anything? You know, unless you’re in the car or you’ve got time to do that, it’s just not the same world any more in terms of concentration.
Robert Del Naja
We live in a world that tells us not to care, to consum

We live in a world that tells us not to care, to consume everything in sight. It tells us that being cool and being an individual actually means buying what everyone else is buying and doing what everyone else is doing.
Julia Butterfly Hill
We live in a capitalist society, so our power as people who consume is significant. I boycott unethical companies and avoid buying stuff made in sweatshops and stuff that will end up in landfills.
Corinne Bailey Rae
In a bubble, eventually people start saying, ‘Wait a minute… these prices are way too high! What is anyone buying anymore? What could they possibly be thinking?’ And then there’s a correction and a bursting.
Robert J. Shiller
Whether I’m doing music or I’m walking down the street or I’m in a record store buying a record or I walk into a comic store and I’m buying comics or having a drink with my friends, it’s the same me.
Glenn Danzig
Queen were the first western band I got hooked on. I got a bootleg – there was hardly any legal buying of CDs in Georgia.
Katie Melua
I love real books, paper books, but I also love buying online, and I think that people are more willing to take a chance to read something if it’s cheaper – sometimes books on the Kindle are $6. A hardback book is $25. For $25, it better be a really great book. Or you’re going to be mad.
Caroline Leavitt
Unless they’re a fugitive or a felon, or adjudicated mentally ill, we’re not against them buying guns at all.
Sarah Brady
I was very shocked to hear about Michael Jackson’s passing. He was a pioneer, and icon and a legend. I remember buying ‘Thriller’ when I was pretty young.
Adam Gontier
I have lots of clothes that I don’t wear because I’m bad for impulse buying. They sit in my cupboard looking forlorn, but if I haven’t worn something for a couple of months, I usually realise that it would be much better off in one of my friends’ wardrobes.
Bat for Lashes
I can never forget the thrill of buying my first Fiat.
In architecture, you arrive so late. I look at doctors, lawyers I know, and they’re all buying boats and bailing out at 62. My career is just getting started.
Thom Mayne
A bespoke shirt is one of the true luxuries that you can acquire. There’s nothing better than a fitted shirt. Once you’ve picked up your first one, you’ll never stop buying them – providing you can pay for it.
Jason Statham
We’re talking to every third-party supplier every day of the week, and our traders are talking to them and buying products from them. When we’re doing that, we see opportunities which no one else sees.
Ivan Glasenberg
From the first time I harangued my mother into buying me a pair of platform sandals at the irascible and persistent age of 11, I’ve worn heels.
Mary H.K. Choi
And you know, we did it as an independent film, and we weren’t expecting it to be on television, and Lifetime ended up buying it. And the viewers responded intensely to that film.
Jenna Elfman
Education is the tool. Even if we haven’t directly instructed a session, I think Wu-Tang has been an instructor of education to anyone who has been a fan, anyone who has supported our movement, whether its been from buying a Wu-Tang CD or coming to see a show.
I don’t want people buying my records for this summer’s hit. I want people buying them because they’re interested in what Ministry will have to say in the future.
Al Jourgensen
I can never leave a bookstore without buying a book. I read four or five at a time.
Mireille Guiliano
I’m not an overly material person. Sure, I like certain comforts in life. But buying a lot of ‘things’ doesn’t produce happiness for me.
Joe Mansueto
The women are at an advantage – we represent the buying power in this country.
Sandra Lee
They will be given as gifts; books that are especially pretty or visual will be bought as hard copies; books that are collectible will continue to be collected; people with lots of bookshelves will keep stocking them; and anyone who likes to make notes in books will keep buying books with margins to fill.
Susan Orlean
When I buy Windows 98, I’m not only buying something useful, I’m giving money to Bill Gates, which is a really good thing.
Penn Jillette
When buying vintage, it’s important to choose pieces that you feel like you’ve already owned for years.
Jeremiah Brent
And you can’t have an Allman Brothers gig without an Allman brother. I’ve heard people try to argue that you can, but I’m not buying it.
Derek Trucks
Tinned food can be cheaper than buying fresh stuff. Things like tinned carrots, tinned potatoes, mushy peas make a good base for a soup.
Jack Monroe
George of the Jungle is a cartoon. He’s a guy who swings around on a vine all day. Are you not buying that?
Brendan Fraser
My idea of splashing out would be buying a new spanner. I’ve got about 300 – you can’t have too many in my opinion.
Guy Martin
When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are legislators.
P. J. O’Rourke
You hear about women buying shoes? I buy DVDs. I definitely have a problem.
Derek Jeter
On what possible basis would I want to stop someone from buying BHS if I had tried to save it?
Philip Green
I hope they can see that as a consumer, if they express themselves, they may make an impact and leverage their impact on the brands, and the brands can leverage their buying power on tens of thousands of polluters – suppliers – in China.
Ma Jun
A whole new generation is looking at the videos, and go

A whole new generation is looking at the videos, and going to the video shop and buying the re-release of the complete trilogy, which you can buy at a reasonable price.
Peter Mayhew
In 1990, I was in ‘The Three Sisters’ at the Royal Court and won the Clarence Derwent award for my supporting role as Natasha – the prize was £100. I could have paid the gas bill, but I ended up buying a porcelain and silver Bavarian coffee set in an antiques shop in Penzance.
Lesley Manville
We know what the customer wants, and so we’re buying in a totally different way.
Matthew Williamson
When I graduated college, I had a fairly successful weekly club gig and was buying more studio equipment and writing my own music. I realized I didn’t want to work.
It seems only reasonable that the people have a right to know virtually everything about the personality they are buying each time they put their money through the box office.
Alan Ladd
I’d like to work with horses, but it doesn’t pay very well. Maybe I’d like to go somewhere in the Middle East because they keep buying really nice horses for their Olympic teams – like, the Qataris.
Edie Campbell
Buying a company that is number one in its business is hard to do. When something is for sale, it’s often not a leader.
Michael Dell
I’ve been buying real estate because it’s an asset I can control, that I could finance extremely cheaply if I chose to. I do not choose to; I buy my real estate in cash. I’m not interested in making money on it. I just want to keep my money safe.
Porter Stansberry
What people really haven’t thought about with real estate is, if you get tax reform, you’re going to see real estate now… the velocity of selling and buying real estate will just kick.
Howard Lutnick
I’m a Virgo and I’m more – I don’t want to say ‘negative’ – but I’m the girl who thinks no one’s coming to my birthday party, no one’s buying my clothes, no one’s reading my book, no one’s watching my show – that’s just how I think.
Rachel Zoe
I’m very smart with my paper! I stopped buying things for myself a long time ago – now I just buy things for my kids or my wife.
The explosion in access to mobile phones and digital services means that people everywhere are contributing vast amounts of information to the global knowledge warehouse. Moreover, they are doing so for free, just by communicating, buying and selling goods and going about their daily lives.
Ban Ki-moon
Buying a matching blouse and skirt from the same store is a crime. A clever mix of chic and cheap hits the jackpot. Know how to mix styles and labels.
Ines de La Fressange
When I was 22, I wasn’t too proud to do anything. I was taking out trash, buying stinky vintage clothes, and pulling gross Kleenex out of the pockets.
Sophia Amoruso
I don’t like having debts. I don’t like buying anything that I can’t buy in cash.
CM Punk
I’m a suit guy. I like wearing them for the sense of completion they offer. I like buying them for the sense of near permanence – the knowledge that whatever I buy will be part of my life for the next ten years or so.
Tom Junod
Marrying a man is like buying something you’ve been admiring for a long time in a shop window. You may love it when you get it home, but it doesn’t always go with everything else in the house.
Jean Kerr
Many think of management as cutting deals and laying people off and hiring people and buying and selling companies. That’s not management, that’s deal making. Management is the opportunity to help people become better people. Practiced that way, it’s a magnificent profession.
Clayton M. Christensen
It’s expensive being in a band, way cheaper buying a laptop.
James Righton
When I was older and I first started working, I was obsessed with buying my first Chanel jacket. I saved up my hard-earned money, went to Barneys, and bought a little black Chanel jacket. It saw many, many job interviews and many, many events. I’m not fitting into it lately, but I still have it.
Nina Garcia
If you buy the Chromebook Plus and intend to use it mainly as a Chromebook, I expect you’ll have a good experience. But if you plan to rely heavily on Android apps, you’re basically buying into the start of a journey, replete with odd-looking presentations of familiar apps, bugs and crashes.
Walt Mossberg
Buying only what you know can end in disaster. Just think about Enron’s employees and business partners, the ‘locals’ who bought lots of its stock because they thought they were in the know.
Kenneth Fisher
Cash – in savings accounts, short-term CDs or money market deposits – is great for an emergency fund. But to fulfill a long-term investment goal like funding your retirement, consider buying stocks. The more distant your financial target, the longer inflation will gnaw at the purchasing power of your money.
Suze Orman
I’m not a good gift-giver, other than the fact that I like surprising people. I usually give what people ask for but I try to make it seem like I’m not buying it.
Trea Turner
I like buying clothes, especially as I get a tax-deductible allowance.
Wendy Cope
I was never stupid with my money, because I grew up without it. So when I started to make some, I was like, ‘Okay, first rule of thumb, I’m not buying it unless I’ve got the money to buy it,’ so I have no debt.
Make dinner with the goal of stretching it out for lunch in the back of your mind. Making more of one thing is cheaper than buying more varied ingredients for each meal.
Alex Guarnaschelli
To find a clear identity for the team – that is not about buying certain players for a lot of money. It is about getting players who want to play the right way.
Carlo Ancelotti
Fashion is not about product; it’s about an interesting idea that you can’t resist buying into.
Alessandro Michele
I think there’s a difference between having a bestselling book – meaning through marketing, PR and buying that first wave of customers – and writing a bestselling book. The second implies that the product propels itself to the best seller list.
Tim Ferriss
From a person whose living depends on other people buying her creative work, this may sound odd, but one of my favorite things about the steampunk subculture is its do-it-yourself attitude.
Kaja Foglio
I love Cheetos, those hot, spicy kind. And chocolate. E

I love Cheetos, those hot, spicy kind. And chocolate. Every time I’m in the airport I’m buying Cheetos and eating them on the airplane.
Alessandra Ambrosio
Upload Radio is a new venture offering content creators and bedroom DJs the chance to get their own programmes on the air by buying time.
David Hepworth
Buying books was a way anyone could acquire a work of art for very little.
Sol LeWitt
I never look at it like I’m wasting money when I’m buying gold.
Big Sean
Buying my pain aux raisins and someone wanting a selfie was so confusing.
Ncuti Gatwa
We can stop the cycle of animal homelessness and save lives by opening our hearts and homes to a loving cat or dog from an animal shelter instead of buying animals from breeders or pet shops.
Amy Jackson
A lot of people are buying things on the Internet – not just white men.
Harper Reed
People go shopping, we spend on so many things, and we just don’t know. We don’t know the prices of things. But gasoline, even when you’re not buying, it’s staring you in the face. Psychologists call this ‘salience.’
Sendhil Mullainathan
Even in the off season, people are streaming the show or buying the DVD sets, and new audience comes to ‘Leverage’ every year we’ve been doing it.
Timothy Hutton
Retirement shouldn’t be making the choice between buying much-needed medication or putting food on the table; making the choice between heating an apartment in the cold winter months or paying rent; making the choice between paying a phone bill or seeing a doctor.
Letitia James
I need to be performing. I need to be acting. I need to be designing a condo and ripping down walls and buying new plates and looking at fashion magazines. There always has to be some movement in the artistic department for me to not get really, really low.
Alanis Morissette
Taxpayers don’t want their money spent more than a very, very slender amount on actual buying art or paying for concerts.
John Hickenlooper
I remember the different things that were happening to my family as we were getting situated and buying our first home in southwest Detroit, watching my mother learn how to drive for the first time.
Rashida Tlaib
I prefer buying things and figuring out where to put them later than regretting not buying them.
Christian Louboutin
My guilty pleasure is I like to watch a lot of HGTV. I really like watching design shows about houses, like extreme homes. Like buying a bridge and turning it into a house or something like that. I really am interested in home design or something like that… architecture.
Taylor Schilling
Music is so hard. It’s a struggle to get people to care. It’s hard to make an impact in today’s world because people aren’t buying records anymore.
Juliana Hatfield
I adore Biarritz. I first went there in the Eighties, and my wife and I liked it so much that we ended up buying a holiday home there.
Tim Pigott-Smith
The experience is fundamentally different for buying from local businesses than it is for buying consumer goods.
Andrew Mason
A friend is someone who supports you. And these people are buying tickets at outrageous ticket prices. If that ain’t support, I don’t know what is.
Brantley Gilbert
If China has cheap labour, Africa has cheaper labour. This is why China started buying out poor countries.
Vivek Agnihotri
With approximately 75 per cent of our rubbish generated by packaging, a few simple steps – buying loose fruit and veg, choosing products with recyclable packaging, and avoiding individually wrapped portions – can have a big impact.
Sheherazade Goldsmith
When I put on my consumer hat, and I’m buying tickets to be entertained, I’m not interested in seeing, like, ‘Don Quixote.’ Unless someone really spectacular is dancing.
Justin Peck
As I saw more and more people buying the images that were happy buyers, and people selling the images that were happy with how the market was pricing them, I started to get the sense this could be the go-to place for businesses to get the images they need.
Jon Oringer
The true way generally when people don’t understand your plight is when you decide to exercise your buying power elsewhere.
Martin Luther King III
I’ve never met a budget that I couldn’t coax a few extra dollars from – and I’ll bet that you can do the same. For instance, you’re probably buying more minutes and more cable channels than you use. Oh, and how many black skinny jeans do I count in your closet? You have enough money, just the wrong priorities.
Jean Chatzky
Consumers may put off buying a car, but they don’t put off buying a vacation.
Dara Khosrowshahi
Where I am in Nottingham, there is a Sainsbury’s, and you see children going in there buying take away food – a sandwich, but more likely a packet of crisps, a fizzy drink – and that’s their breakfast.
Anna Soubry
Hot today, forgotten tomorrow. I’m not buying anything.
James Marshall
Capitalism is not about free competitive choices among people who are reasonably equal in their buying and selling of economic power, it is about concentrating capital, concentrating economic power in very few hands using that power to trash everyone who gets in their way.
David Korten
I had all kinds of fantasies, like a lot of girls, but did I actually go through the motions of planning a wedding and buying bridal magazines and imagining things and setting up who would play what role? No. Because as I grew up, I started to believe that I would be one of those gals that never got married.
Sara Ramirez
I always had a great history of comics. I’ve been buying them since I was six years old. I was a student of the craft.
Rob Liefeld
If you're buying animal products and can go to the farm

If you’re buying animal products and can go to the farm and actually see how the animals are looked after, yes, that’s an important point. That’s definitely the best way of assuring yourself that the animals are being well treated.
Peter Singer
Since I was 13, I’ve been buying things because they are ridiculously cheap.
Ronald Burkle
I don’t think the art market is for everybody. Yeah, of course we have a global gallery. But we’re like the one-tenth of the one-tenth of the one-tenth. OK? Not just who’s buying but who’s really seriously engaged with art.
Larry Gagosian
This sounds weird, but when you have a male fan base, you pretty much know you are going to be okay until you’re an old, crispy dude, because they’re not buying your films because you’re sexy.
Luke Goss
Too many people are buying gifts for themselves when they pick out a gift for a friend.
Phoebe Cates
I’m pretty conservative. I believe that buying good quality is a good investment. I buy fewer things but of better quality.
Robin S. Sharma
Why are people unemployed? Because there is no work. Why is there no work? Because people are not buying products and services. Why are people not buying products and services? Because they have no money. Why do people have no money? Because they are unemployed.
Craig Bruce
We are a nation of immigrants, and if the truth be known, don’t we need a whole lot of immigrants to be buying homes and to drive our economy and to take jobs that U.S. citizens don’t want?
Gary Johnson
I just love buying myself presents. Is that a crime?
Nish Kumar
I like shopping at retail places like JC Penney or Macy’s, and maybe buying a top or a shirt, and then buying a skirt from Rue 21 or Forever 21 because they have the maxi skirts, which I appreciate so much, and then topping it off with something that I buy from a Somali shop.
Halima Aden
It got to the point in the late 70s and early 80s that I was spending so much money buying golden age comics that I could only justify it if I got work in the media.
Bill Mumy
I’m always buying gadgets, especially at airports.
Tom Felton
It’s horrible when people are only interested in buying labels, because it doesn’t bring them the happiness they think it will.
Miuccia Prada
Do we value privacy in any real way? Thinking about blogs, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace… all these suggest we value exposure rather more. And instead of challenging this transformation, as they are supposed to – certainly at the more thoughtful edges of the art – novelists are buying into it wholesale.
Guy Gavriel Kay
Buying an aggregator and calling it a content play is a little like a company’s announcing plans to improve its cash position by hiring a counterfeiter.
Bill Keller
Do not go out first thing after signing a contract and buy assets that are huge compared to the contract signed. Just because you have money for the first time doesn’t mean you have to spend it before you know all the ramifications of buying the assets.
Mark Goulston
I have an expensive hobby: buying homes, redoing them, tearing them down and building them up the way they want to be built. I want to be an architect.
Sandra Bullock
Fashion is not an investment. If you wear a dress and don’t get many compliments, you won’t wear it again. It’s not like buying bonds.
Carolina Herrera
A book worth reading is worth buying.
John Ruskin
The thing to do with mutual funds is to buy a couple of decent ones, set up an investment plan and then never, ever think about them again, except maybe once a quarter or so when you take a peek at your statements to make sure that you have not accidentally been buying the Fidelity Peace-in-the-Middle-East fund.
Alex Berenson
I have many creative outlets. I sing, I like music, I like art, I paint, I draw. I like buying art. I read a lot, too. I love books. And I’m working on a clothing line, too.
Evan Ross
I don’t want to tell you what to buy. I just want to help you think about why you’re buying it.
Alexa Von Tobel
Actors are sellers, and I figured out a long time ago that if you wanted to work a lot, you had to be on the buying side.
Jason Bateman
You see politicians talking about negative gearing or tax on your second home – most people I knew growing up couldn’t afford the rent, let alone buying a house, or a second house.
Jimmy Barnes
When no one’s buying your records, it’s easy to justify selling a song. But once you start selling records, you can’t really justify having two songs in Cadillac commercials. It looks greedy. And it is greedy. This whole music thing should be about music.
Patrick Carney
In 2005, MTV Networks considered buying Facebook for seventy-five million dollars. Yahoo! and Microsoft soon offered much more. Zuckerberg turned them all down.
Jose Antonio Vargas
The media and marketing deluge has spawned a new type of Wall Street loser: the armchair momentum player. These are novice investors who engage in short-term stock buying and selling based on media reports or an expert’s enthusiasm.
Gary Weiss
When I was a kid, and the Hockey Night in Canada theme issued from our black-and-white Sylvania TV, I disappeared to the basement to listen to 45s and read the encyclopedias that my parents kept buying from travelling salesmen.
Neil Macdonald
I don’t know how much of a market there is for space opera. Just because it’s in the movies doesn’t mean magazines are buying it.
Octavia E. Butler
I have been blessed with a family, mother especially, who started buying me fancy shoes from the time I took baby steps.
Madhura Naik
Everything changes all the time, and unfortunately, everyone who knows what you do by buying records only hears a small amount of what’s going on in your life.
Pat Benatar
I watched my parents go from having very basic jobs to

I watched my parents go from having very basic jobs to educating themselves, to buying a house. They set a really good bar for what they wanted their kids to achieve.
Tinie Tempah
I’m afraid of buying a house or anything, ’cause if there’s one paparazzi outside for one day, then they’ll never leave.
Robert Pattinson
The thing about Paris, it’s a great city for wandering around and buying shoes and nursing a cafe au lait for hours on end and pretending you’re Baudelaire. But it’s not a city where you can work.
Malcolm Mclaren
The COVID-19 crisis has highlighted the importance of shopping and buying local.
Mike Parson
A surprising number of government committees will make important decisions on fundamental matters with less attention than each individual would give to buying a suit.
Herman Kahn
For instance, we’re always fighting amongst each other. Who gives us the arms? And then we become indebted to wherever we are buying them from – with what? The very resources we need to keep there.
Miriam Makeba
We discovered that there are actually fewer companies actually buying data.
Noam Bardin
Until Americans feel that their core asset – their homes – are stabilized, they are not going to have the animal spirits and they will continue to have less buying power.
Kevin O’Leary
We’ve learned that when a consumer moves from a relationship rooted in ‘me’ to one powered by ‘we,’ a new world of buying and advocacy opens up for a brand.
Richard Edelman
Haven’t read a book for years – keep buying them and never getting round to reading them – I never seem to have the time.
The original idea before Mint was a life and goal planning system I called Carpe Viva. The idea was that all of life’s goals, from buying a house, getting an MBA, or learning Spanish could be quantified in both time and money.
Aaron Patzer
I try to stress to my children that buying something never leads to true happiness.
Harlan Coben
Individual investors have become far more powerful than anyone gives them credit for. Today, 85 million Americans invest in stocks. Collectively, that kind of buying and selling power can move markets.
Maria Bartiromo
I think you have to plan ahead. When I go to the market on a Saturday, and I’m buying for family and friends, I’m thinking about what I’m going to eat on the weekend but also about what I’m going to make for the following week.
Alice Waters
People will buy a good electrical car instead of buying a fossil-fuel one, and you get a much better standard of car.
Erna Solberg
Buying art is not understanding art.
Anselm Kiefer
If people had good albums, they’d be buying albums. But people are buying singles because they only have good songs.
Kid Rock
We’re constantly buying airplane tickets; we travel on the Concorde.
Eva Herzigova
I take my kids to the farmer’s market – knowing I’m buying local and fresh makes the humiliation of the little choo-choo train ride worthwhile.
Sara Gilbert
My parents came from little, so they made a choice to give a lot: buying turkeys for homeless shelters at Thanksgiving, delivering meals to people in hospices, giving spare change to those asking for it.
Meghan Markle
I never cared about buying things for myself, like clothes. And then all of a sudden I realized how great it is to be very precise about the shirts that I wear and all the things that are a part of my closet. So the ritual of fashion and shopping became very personal to me.
Marc Jacobs
When we do an investment, we always ask, ‘Can we affect the outcome? When buying a company, can we have an impact?’ That’s a different style of investing than a passive investor in the stock market. To me, that’s how you’re taking the risk out of it. You know what your capability is and how you can enhance value.
Dan Gilbert
When the farmer can sell directly to the consumer, it is a more active process. There’s more contact. The consumer can know, who am I buying this from? What’s their name? Do they have a face? Is the food they are selling coming out of Mexico with pesticides?
Jerry Brown
I know exactly what I want to buy and I spend very little time, maybe 15 hours a year, buying stuff. I’ll go in and out of Dunhill in 45 minutes and pick out a few suits. Boom. And I’m gone. I get my shirts at Charvet. I go in there – woosh – and buy 12 shirts and some ties; once a year and that’s it.
Edward N. Ney
Buying is a profound pleasure.
Simone de Beauvoir
My own interest in art was because of my mother. My father didn’t like contemporary art, so he didn’t give her large sums to spend. So, she began buying prints and drawings. During my school days, I remember sitting in on many of the early meetings.
David Rockefeller
We have been sold a Muslim boogeyman. We are buying into it, and we are terrified, and that terror is causing people to lash out at comedians like myself or women wearing hijabs, or anyone who seems to defend equality for Muslims worldwide.
Maysoon Zayid
There are all sorts of cute puppy dogs, but it doesn’t stop people from going out and buying Dobermans.
Angus Young
I am at my impulsive best every time I am at airports. I end up buying a lot of stuff, and pamper myself from the duty-free stores.
Shakti Mohan
As long as people are buying music, it’s good for everybody.
Chris Stapleton
One day we will have more inflation, and our bonds will bleed like a pig. The only reason for buying long bonds is short-term or as a desperate haven for terrorized investors. But the potential to make longer-term real money is naught.
Jeremy Grantham
I love buying hair clips.

I love buying hair clips.
Nushrat Bharucha
Many a man thinks he is buying pleasure, when he is really selling himself to it.
Benjamin Franklin
I’ve set aside a nice chunk of my advertising revenue each month for giveaways, like a KitchenAid mixer. I like buying them for the audience, because without the audience I wouldn’t have the blog or the revenue in the first place.
Ree Drummond
Combining technology and fashion shouldn’t be about PR gimmicks – they should genuinely enhance the experience of buying, owning and experiencing a luxury product.
Imran Amed
If I am out in the street or buying bread or taking a taxi, no one knows who I am.
Sylvie Guillem
Large-caps were safe in 1996, ’97, ’98. Everybody was buying index funds and Nifty Fifty funds. As long as money was pouring in, it was great.
Louis Navellier
Because of economics, you have to feed the demographics that are buying your product. So, as Asia becomes a much more economic influence on the products that are being made from America, I think people have to be sensitive.
Sung Kang
There’s been a big spur in downtown development with new business, restaurants and a lot of loft buying. The buses run, and there’s a subway that runs through downtown.
Michael Ritchie
I don’t like conflicts of interest; they should be eliminated or disclosed. I believe in transparency: that people have to really not just know but understand what they’re buying and selling.
Eric Schneiderman
Instead of reading a paper, we now read the news online. Instead of buying books at a store, we buy them on-line. What’s so revolutionary? The Internet has mainly affected our leisure life.
Ha-Joon Chang
There’s a difference between buying a few places yourself and getting into the property game.
Louis Walsh
When I started buying my mother all these homes, like a second home in Kentucky, where I moved most of my family, they began to rely on my wallet.
Wilson Pickett
Time is money, especially when you are talking to a lawyer or buying a commercial.
Frank Dane
Our entire political system is financed by wealthy private interests buying politicians and making sure the rules are written in their favor.
Michelle Alexander
Buying a banner, you have no control whether ten different people see your ad once, or one person sees it ten times.
Gil Penchina
If the parties would brand themselves the way Coke and Pepsi and other products do so that you knew what you were buying, it had quality control. I vote for the Republican. He or she will not raise my taxes. I’ll buy one. I’ll take that one home.
Grover Norquist
Valuations are actually quite simple to grasp. A company is only worth what two acquirers are willing to pay for it. Don’t you just need to find that one buyer? If there is only one potential company interested in buying your startup, chances are you won’t be hearing the word ‘billion’ in the offer.
Jay Samit
Music is the one part of the entertainment business where you can’t fool anybody into buying a record.
Nile Rodgers
Supermarkets have contributed as much to increasing the standard of living in the United Kingdom as almost any government policy. They bring a level of convenience and quality that was unknown to previous generations at a highly competitive price because of their buying power.
Jacob Rees-Mogg
The truth is, if I was maybe better or funnier or prettier, wouldn’t I have starred in a movie? I can see it objectively as a businesswoman – if no one’s buying your product, then there’s not a desire for it.
Judy Greer
Since M.O.’s trunk shows will run during a brand’s market week, designers can get immediate feedback from our high-end customers to help better shape their buying and production decisions. This keeps our members happy and can improve each brand’s bottom line.
Aslaug Magnusdottir
The reliable way great conglomerates grew over time was by adding new products and buying new companies. IBM moved from mainframe to PCs.
Adam Lashinsky
Whether it’s buying products or researching what you’re buying, or just becoming aware of what you’re buying, you’re saying so much with the money that you’re spending.
Jayma Mays
Whatever you do needs to be sustainable over time, and taking the money in the short term and taking it in a bubble – like buying an Internet stock in 2000 – may not be sustainable.
Gary Bettman
Middle-class mothers and fathers turned out to be a very well-defined consumer group, easily gulled into buying almost anything that might remedy their parental deficiencies.
Jill Lepore
It was such an idyllic time when I grew up in Hong Kong. It was a British colony and very much geared towards buying the best of Britain. My childhood does have a huge influence on how we design. There must be a little bit of that nostalgia – childhood is so special.
Marie-Chantal Claire
I never download anything; it’s crazy! We must keep buying albums and DVDs.
Caterina Murino
Sometimes I can’t stop myself from buying things just because I see them – even when I don’t really need them.
Angela Merkel
How much you accumulate is a byproduct of what you enjoy doing in life. And I enjoy buying companies.
Michael Heisley
Buying phosphate-free soap allows you to say, ‘My detergent doesn’t have the harsh chemicals others do.’ The question is, how are you washing with it? The very worst thing for the Earth about detergent is that we heat water to use it.
Daniel Goleman
Leaders cling to power in a socialist state like Venezuela by buying votes and manipulating elections.
Trish Regan
My woman, the person who's buying the clothes, is from

My woman, the person who’s buying the clothes, is from all walks in life. She’s from different countries and cultures. She’s going to be different sizes.
Christian Siriano
The writing life is one long, never-ending search for narrative. Well, it’s not even a conscious searching. It happens even while you’re busy buying groceries and when you’re fast asleep. It’s a curse.
Miriam Toews
Yeah, I’ve always been someone to celebrate a win, whether it’s enjoying it with people or doing something or buying myself something that I wouldn’t buy myself.
Justin Thomas
I carry cash around with me all the time as I like buying dancers I’m working with snacks and drinks, but I also use my Amex card and a Coutts Visa card, which I always pay off in full every month. I hate the idea of being in debt.
Arlene Phillips
It doesn’t matter how good you are as a band or how good your music may be; if the fans aren’t supporting it and buying your music, it’s hard to make it.
Chris Daughtry
We should teach our children about the reality of failure. Instead of buying them iPhones and iPads, we should teach them values and reality.
I may not be much good at most things, but if I didn’t have the pleasure of planning and installing shows, and doing it better than anyone else, I would have stopped buying art many years ago.
Charles Saatchi
Trendy gadgets and edgy pitches inevitably get replaced due to the fickle nature of the buying public, but a business designed from the start to play big has the ability to weather trends and redirect itself to venues and products that its customers want and need.
Michael Gerber
I don’t like ads: I’m too susceptible. I find myself in the supermarket buying Ronseal, and I don’t even have a shed.
Claudia Winkleman
Gemini is a spot bitcoin exchange. To use it, you sign up with and undergo the initial standard review process, similar to what you’d encounter at a traditional bank. Once you’re through, you can ACH or wire cash to the platform, then begin buying and selling bitcoin.
Tyler Winklevoss
Yves Saint Laurent will never go out of business so long as I’m buying mountains of Touche Eclat.
Deirdre O’Kane
If you’re buying an album because of the face on it, you’re stupid.
Enrique Iglesias
People were buying two, three and four houses to be sold on and rented out. Then the money ran out. To this day you see a lot of what we call ghost estates around Ireland, which have not been finished.
Sarah Greene
I ran my own business when I was 19, buying condos and renovating apartment buildings.
Jared Kushner
Your money is power, so be aware of the products you’re buying and the companies you’re supporting to make sure you’re helping the companies that are leading the way in sustainability.
Gretchen Bleiler
In China, you’ve got six people buying for one child. But the thing is, you’ve got the largest rising upper-middle class in the world.
Angela Ahrendts
When I first started buying shoes with my own money, I would always get them from eBay. I used to hack my mum’s account, and suddenly these white cowboy leather boots would arrive.
Suki Waterhouse
The first guitar I ever had was a gut-string Spanish guitar, and I couldn’t really get the hang of it. I was only 13, and I talked my grandparents into buying it for me. I tried and tried and tried, but got nowhere with it.
Eric Clapton
Buying found objects means repurposing something that was already made years before, sometimes decades before. It strikes a nice balance between the new and used equation we should strive for in our lives.
Nate Berkus
What’s encouraging is that the early new platforms – Kindle and iPad – are clearly leading to people buying more books. The data is in on that.
Steven Johnson
Just ’cause something’s popular, it can still be good. In fact, if more people are buying it, then you must be doing something right. People look down on stuff that sells. What do you call that? Downward snobbery, I guess.
I love kitchenware. I’m very frugal and I don’t buy a lot of things, but I’m frivolous when it comes to buying groceries and kitchenware.
Michelle Zauner
Even when it comes to zippers and buttons, Italy reigns supreme. The luxury market is ours, as demonstrated by the voracity with which various foreign conglomerates are buying up the jewels of our manufacturing sector.
Lapo Elkann
Buying involves decision-making. It’s a performance activity, like sports or acting.
Mark Goulston
There is actually quite a lot of crossover between the quacks and drug companies. They use the same tricks and tactics to bamboozle people into buying their pills, but drug firms can afford to use slightly more sophisticated versions.
Ben Goldacre
I still feel guilty buying something without asking my mother first. It’s ridiculous. I’ll call her and be like, ‘I saw this dress, can I get it?’ And she’ll say, ‘Margaret, whatever. Get the dress.’
Margaret Qualley
In the area we’re discussing, leadership begins on Madison Avenue, on the desks and in the offices of people who spend hundreds of millions of dollars buying what will get them ratings.
Norman Lear
I saw clearly that war was upon us when I learned that my young men had been secretly buying ammunition.
Chief Joseph
With my adult books, for the first six weeks or so, it’s about 60 percent ebooks in terms of sales. The kids’ books, it’s like 5 percent. Which means that the parents, the ones that aren’t going into stores now, they’re no longer buying books for their kids, which is not great.
James Patterson
When buying beauty products, I always check the ingredients. The product should be sourced from natural ingredients. It should have not been tested on animals, as I am against animal testing, and it should be soft on the skin.
Jacqueline Fernandez
I think I learned a lot about not buying into a lot of hype. I wanted to be a kind of faceless entity; I didn’t want to be Dhani Harrison and the Muppets or something like that.
Dhani Harrison
Because of piracy there has been a massive downturn in

Because of piracy there has been a massive downturn in people buying music, which makes it more difficult for artists to make money from the sale of records.
Lily Allen
I myself don’t know what makes my books work. I enter a bookstore and I’m frankly overwhelmed by the number of books in most of them, and I know people are buying mine.
Chetan Bhagat
For too many families in St. Louis and across the country, the high cost of energy means having to choose between keeping the heat on in the winter or buying groceries. I, myself, have had to make that choice.
Cori Bush
I’ve had some bad business lessons and learned some things. It’s not always about going platinum. So long as I know who is buying my records and I generate revenue that’s mine, then it’s cool.
Mannie Fresh
I am buying the most unpopular, most battered stocks, but then who knows?
Rakesh Jhunjhunwala
You have to make time for fans, and you really need to appreciate them. You have to remember that if they weren’t buying, playing, or streaming your music, you wouldn’t be in the charts, and people wouldn’t be hearing your music.
When people come to my act any time after Thanksgiving, I usually say, You shouldn’t be here. You should be shopping. Our economy depends on you! You should be out there buying stuff.’
Lewis Black
Overwhelming, student loan payments are holding millions back from buying homes, starting families, and saving for retirement.
Elise Stefanik
People aren’t buying records like they used to, so it’s nice to try to figure out a way to make them do it. I would enjoy the same thing to own an old movie house, to try to trick people to come in – like having 3-D or Smell-o-Vision or Vibra-Vision or something. Mcguffins to get people interested.
Jack White
I was against getting Beats cause I know they’re kind of really popular and you know, hey’re such a well known brand. But, I ended up buying them and they have changed my life, and the best thing about these is the battery life.
Charlie Heaton
One of the great joys of being able to write something you can make, if you get certain actors you want and love, you’re kind of buying yourself a front row seat to watch them work.
Joel Edgerton
Why are cancer patients so hard to buy for? This question always puzzles me. When people are healthy, things are so simple, including gift buying. A jaunt to the local mall or a day in front of the TV watching QVC can be just enough for all the loved ones on your list.
Jenna Morasca
I met this wonderful girl at Macy’s. She was buying clothes and I was putting Slinkies on the escalator.
Steven Wright
One of the things which make any company successful, in particular the Home Depot, was that we understood and catered to the customer. If it didn’t sell, it didn’t make a difference what we thought or our research told us. They told us if it was successful by buying it or not.
Bernard Marcus
I have a very big family and a lot of friends, and buying presents is one of my favorite things to do.
L’Wren Scott
