The Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford is an astonishing buil

The Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford is an astonishing building, designed by Christopher Wren. Its painted ceiling has just been restored so that the darkish miasma that was Robert Streeter’s original allegory of truth and light striking the university is now bright with playful cherubs and lustrous clouds.
Justin Cartwright
The appeal of travel books is also the sense that you are different, an outsider, almost like the Robinson Crusoe or Christopher Columbus notion of being the first person in a new place.
Paul Theroux
Not to sound too much like Christopher Guest in ‘Waiting for Guffman,’ but on Thanksgiving you’re putting on a show!
Ted Allen
I do admit to being slightly in love with Christopher Walken.
Imogen Poots
What Christopher Nolan and I have done with ‘Superman’ is try to bring the same naturalistic approach that we adopted for the ‘Batman’ trilogy. We always had a naturalistic approach; we want our stories to be rooted in reality, like they could happen in the same world we live in.
David S. Goyer
My perfect day would be to go on a picnic up Mt. Wilson with Christopher Isherwood, Greta Garbo, Aldous Huxley, and Bertrand Russell.
Janet Fitch
Christopher Hitchens and I were not friends or even acquaintances. We never met or spoke on the phone, just exchanged occasional brief letters – notes, really – hand-written and snail-mailed at first, e-mailed later.
Florence King
I think Christopher Daniels’ first championship reign with ROH is about 20 years too late, and I fully embrace the role that I’ve naturally been given here as spoiler for that reign.
Cody Rhodes
What people adore about superhero movies is the signal quality of the Christopher Nolan films – their complete lack of irony when it comes to the portrayal of heroism and the need for heroes to confront evil.
John Podhoretz
The lives of most authors – even, or perhaps especially, the great ones – are necessarily a catalogue of tedious inwardness and cloistered composition. Globe-trotting Hemingways and brawling Christopher Marlowes are the exception, not the rule.
Paul Di Filippo
I became a horror fan during the early 1960s, back when Hammer was putting out their groundbreaking ‘Dracula’ series with Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing, and grew up watching ‘Dark Shadows.’
Nancy A. Collins
I guess a lot of comic-book adaptations strive for realism. Christopher Nolan is making Batman seem very real and very serious.
Edgar Wright
For me, my party views don’t advance my narrative. Until I can find a way to write political satire like my idols Christopher Buckley or P.J. O’Rourke, I’ll simply say what team I play for and leave it at that.
Jen Lancaster
I like to think of Christopher Daniels as one of those who’s a great professional wrestler, but I like to think of myself as one of those people that’s great at everything.
Cody Rhodes
Few would argue that Richard Dawkins is the world’s most famous atheist, especially now that his friend and rival for the title, Christopher Hitchens, has now gone to meet his Maker.
Ray Comfort
There are so many amazing directors I would love to work with, like Christopher Nolan, who is a total pipe dream.
Italia Ricci
Christopher Nolan’s astounding third Batman feature, ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ represents the true maturation of the superhero movie – and provides the key to understanding the bottomless craving moviegoers have for these films, 34 years after the Christopher Reeve Superman gave birth to the genre.
John Podhoretz
I became very close with Charles Bronson and his wife, Kim. We did ‘Sea Wolf’ together along with Christopher Reeve. I’ve been lucky enough to work with some amazing, legendary actors. I worked with Rod Steiger twice, for instance.
Catherine Mary Stewart
There’s this weird kind of coming-in-from-left-field thing going on, and I love it – I am a huge fan of Christopher Durang.
Jane Lynch
As a kid, I was really into performing. I would do choruses, I would do musicals, whatever it was. And then, as a teenager, I got into an acting class at SUNY Purchase for gifted kids, and that really turned me on to material beyond musicals, Sam Shepard, and Christopher Durang plays.
Matisyahu
There are even more statues of Robert Burns than of any other figure in world literature. Indeed if we discount figures of religion, then only Christopher Columbus has more statues than he worldwide.
Len G. Murray
What a pity, when Christopher Columbus discovered America, that he ever mentioned it.
Margot Asquith
Even if the Bush Administration had flung open the gates to stem-cell research years ago, we would not be at the point of offering treatment today. Christopher Reeve would still have been taken from us. But we would be closer.
Patti Davis
Christopher Plummer once told me that he never orders a wine without first confirming that the restaurant has a second bottle in case he loves it.
Kenneth Cranham
Christopher Reeve understood that… everything begins with hope. His vision of walking again, his belief that he would be able to in his lifetime, towered over his broken body.
Patti Davis
Christopher Columbus discovered America in a blue-and-white sailor shirt, and since then, men have been wearing blue and white shirts.
Mickey Drexler
As the grandson of Italian immigrants, maybe I am biased, but I think Christopher Columbus, the man who is rightfully credited with bringing European civilization to the Western Hemisphere, deserves the national holiday enacted by Congress in 1934.
Tom Tancredo
I’ve always loved improvised movies like Christopher Guest and the ‘Spinal Tap’ era of comedy.
Matt Walsh
I was called Kit from day one; really, I only found out my name was Christopher when I was 11.
Kit Harington
It’s interesting to see how some of the womenswear designers that we have long worked with at Net-A-Porter are developing menswear collections – Christopher Kane, Jonathan Saunders and Richard Nicoll.
Natalie Massenet
Christopher Walken could literally read a phone book and fill a theater, and it would be interesting to watch. I’ve often wanted to produce a show and ask him if he’d do that. All week long, he could read the As on Tuesday, the Bs on Wednesday; we’d see how long it would last.
Gary Cole
I don't think I've ever had a mentor. The closest thing

I don’t think I’ve ever had a mentor. The closest thing is my friend Christopher Fowler, another writer. Chris kept me sane for a long time before I made it.
Joanne Harris
I feel like I am walking in some amazing footsteps of writers who have come before me, like S.E. Hinton, Walter Dean Myers, Christopher Paul Curtis, Richard Peck and Kate DiCamillo, who I love.
Jacqueline Woodson
When the photographer is nearby, I like to say, ‘Quick, get a photo of me looking into the camera,’ because I’m never looking into the camera. Christopher Nolan looks into the camera, but I think most directors don’t, so whenever you see a picture of a director looking at the camera, it’s fake.
Nicholas Stoller
Christopher Hitchens was a great warrior, a magnificent orator, a pugilist and a gentleman. He was kind, but he took no prisoners when arguing with idiots.
Richard Dawkins
I would like to work with Jean Reno, and I think it would be amazing to work with Jim Carrey. I would quite like to work with Robert De Niro and probably Christopher Walken.
Thomas Brodie-Sangster
I do look for openings where I can overturn popular misconceptions, but unlike Christopher Hitchens, I am neither a contrarian nor a lone heretic. I like to have a significant number of academics watching my back.
Steven Pinker
Who’s judging American Idol? Paula Abdul? Paula Abdul judging a singing contest is like Christopher Reeve judging a dance contest!
Chris Rock
I’m quite ignorant about fashion and I’m colourblind, so it’s all a tad tricky. My only knowledge of that world comes through Christopher Bailey, whom I first met in 2008 when I did a campaign for Burberry that featured musicians, artists, actors and sportsmen.
Eddie Redmayne
When your heart speaks to you about what you need to do to sustain life on this planet, listen to it, make a difference, and be an inspiration for generations to come. Be inspired by people like Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Christopher Reeve, Albert Schweitzer, Helen Keller, and many others.
Bernie Siegel
I love Christopher Bailey and Burberry, Mulberry for bags, and Hudson for jeans. I like a little bit of designer with a bit of vintage and High Street mixed in. I love it when you find those one-off key pieces, which end up becoming investment pieces. I always go for comfort, and like feeling confident and casual.
Cara Delevingne
Christopher Reeve will always be Superman in my mind.
Jason Behr
With Christopher Guest films, we have a lot of say.
Jennifer Coolidge
If I were to win the Nobel Prize in Literature – which I think it’s fairly safe to say is not going to happen – I would still expect the headline on my obituary to read: ‘Christopher Buckley, son of William F. Buckley, Jr., is dead at 78.’
Christopher Buckley
I saw ‘Othello’ with Christopher Plummer and James Earl Jones.
Eric McCormack
I like the acting. It’s how I started, and I sort of feel that if I don’t give it a little shot now, and I go back, then I’m pretty much done with it. I mean, at what age am I going to do it at? Although, when you see Christopher Plummer and Max von Sydow doing it, I guess the answer is 80.
Albert Brooks
When Christopher and Charles passed away, I was completely depressed, I felt rejected and real down, and so Roscoe invited me because he had this spirit of compassion, and we had gone to school together, were friends and everything.
Joseph Jarman
Right after graduation, I married Samuel Fisher Babbitt, an academic administrator. I spent the next ten years in Connecticut, Tennessee, and Washington, D.C., raising our children, Christopher, Tom, and Lucy.
Natalie Babbitt
I very much like Christopher Kane. He actually did a work placement with me, and you could spot his talent straight away.
Giles Deacon
Wynton and Christopher were really great experiences for me because they are both very gifted artists.
Kathleen Battle
I knew it was called ‘Dunkirk,’ Christopher Nolan was directing it, and it was a war film. That was all anyone knew.
Fionn Whitehead
Atheism is a moral position – a rather rigid one, if you’ve ever read the opinions of its highest-profile espousers, Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins.
Lynn Coady
I remember one time when all the nuns in my Catholic grade school got around in a semicircle, me and Mom in the middle, and they said, ‘Mrs. Farley, the children at school are laughing at Christopher, not with him.’ I thought, ‘Who cares? As long as they’re laughing.’
Chris Farley
My favorite of all time will always be Christopher Reeve. He’ll always be Superman in my eyes.
Dean Cain
Christopher pushed the boundaries beyond anything anyone could expect from any human being.
Dana Reeve
I love discovering new young brands and watching these fashion lines take off, like Peter Pilotto, Christopher Kane, and Clover Canyon.
Gillian Jacobs
I’ve been really lucky because I’ve managed to become wonderful friends with a handful of very talented British designers. Christopher Kane has become one of my very good friends – also Erdem. Jonathan Saunders is another brilliant talent who’s very kind. We all hang out.
Laura Carmichael
There’s only a handful of people who are just purely, inherently funny, and I’m not one of them. I need content and a situation. I don’t just walk on the screen, and people go, ‘Ha ha ha!’ There are people like that, and they can do almost anything. It’s the Christopher Walken Rule.
Gary Cole
You make yourself do the physical aspects for a Christopher Nolan film!
Fionn Whitehead
Writing for me is not a premeditated act. It just happens – characters keep coming out of nowhere and doing things I never expected them to do. The most persistent and most productive of these has been Paul Christopher, whom I didn’t expect to see again after he appeared in ‘The Miernik Dossier.’
Charles McCarry
Chris Hemsworth is like Christopher Reeve in that he can do two things: he can wear a big red cape without a shred of self-consciousness. But he’s also funny as hell, and he’s so sweet. So with all the fish-out-of-water stuff, he’s so funny. So he does almost two jobs in a way.
Tom Hiddleston
Working with Christopher, he convinced me he could fly, and he’s convinced me he’s going to walk again.
Richard Donner
Christopher Hitchens's autobiography, 'Hitch 22', is a

Christopher Hitchens’s autobiography, ‘Hitch 22’, is a poignant read and very interesting because I have a very poor knowledge of recent political history – or, for that matter, distant political history.
Tim Minchin
I’m an enormous admirer of Christopher Lee. He’s somebody, along with Vincent Price, who I celebrate, and I wanted my movies to show that celebration and that honoring of these great film stars that were unafraid to go into horror and Grand Guignol and the macabre.
Nicolas Cage
I discovered Christopher Isherwood in college. His writing style is so direct, warm, and inclusive.
Claire Danes
The first day of shooting I walk up to Christopher Walken, and I said, Should I call you Mr. Walken or Chris? He goes, ‘Call me Flash.’
Michael Rosenbaum
I just look back, and I say, you know, Christopher Guest just raised my whole career to another level.
Fred Willard
It was Christopher’s brilliant concept that he did not want this to become like every other sitcom where you do one take, and the audience gets bored with seeing it ten times, you know, over and over again.
Stacy Keach
Christopher Reeve did such an amazing job that to give him some kind of accent or more bravado would have been wrong. Audiences wouldn’t have responded to that either.
Brandon Routh
My co-winners, Peter Diamond and Christopher Pissarides, and I wish to thank the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and the Nobel Foundation for this very great honor. We each feel privileged and humbled to be named the winners of the 2010 Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel.
Dale T. Mortensen
The late Christopher Hitchens had the professional contrarian’s fixation on attacking sacred cows, and rather soon after his cancer diagnosis, he became one himself.
Alex Pareene
Christopher Finazzo had a great job that paid him millions of dollars, but this honest living was apparently not enough to satisfy his greed.
Loretta Lynch
I’m heavily involved in the creative with choreographer Christopher Scott. I go to rehearsals with ‘Glee’ and then practice with LXD till about midnight.
Harry Shum, Jr.
I wear a St. Christopher medal. On the back it says: ‘Good luck, good luck, good luck – Mama.’
Dinah Manoff
Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Prestige’ is an enthralling study of doubles, doubling and duplicity. Its twinned themes are obsession and the Secret: the Secret as objet-a, that which inspires, but which can never satisfy, obsession.
Mark Fisher
I love Maje, Rick Owens, Helmut Lang, Christopher Kane, Felder + Felder, and Sam Edelman shoes.
Amber Le Bon
London is a city of ghosts; you feel them here. Not just of people, but eras. The ghost of empire, or the blitz, the plague, the smoky ghost of the Great Fire that gave us Christopher Wren’s churches and ushered in the Georgian city.
A. A. Gill
I would love to interview Michael McKean and his wife, who wrote the songs for ‘A Mighty Wind,’ which is my favorite Christopher Guest movie. I’m just a sucker for any funny guy that has a wife who is intelligent and that he collaborates with.
Julie Klausner
No, well, my father’s definitely not Christopher Walken.
Josh Lucas
I would love to work with Christopher Nolan, 100 percent.
Jaden Smith
