Words matter. These are the best Roger Quotes from famous people such as Glen Campbell, Phil Gingrey, Henrik Lundqvist, John McEnroe, Bjorn Borg, and they’re great for sharing with your friends.
Roger Miller opened a lot of people’s eyes to the possibilities of country music, and it’s making more impact now because it’s earthy material: stories and things that happen to everyday people. I call it ‘people music.’
Roger Kahn is someone with a gazillion dollars who thinks that he can use his vast fortune to buy television spots, particularly network television, and boost up his positives, make him appear to be a gentleman farmer, and cover up his warts.
Last time I was starstruck was when I met Roger Federer. He is one of the few athletes that I really look up to – incredibly talented both on and off the track and a great role model for tennis.
If Roger stopped right now and never won another match, to me he’d already be one of the greatest players to ever play the game. To me, he’s the greatest all around talent that I’ve ever seen.
Roger Federer is stylish.
It’s really amazing. Novak, Rafa, Roger, they win couple times a year in a row all the grand slams.
After we covered Queen’s ‘Don’t Stop Me Now,’ Brian May and Roger Taylor sent us a bottle of champagne and asked us if we’d sing it on stage during the ‘We Will Rock You’ musical on what would have been Freddie Mercury’s 60th birthday.
A part of me feels very Swiss: I follow Swiss sports – curling, for example – and I support Swiss teams. I love Roger Federer.
I’ve known Roger Ailes for 15 years, and I have been treated with the utmost professionalism and respect.
I was at the Wimbledon some time back and I saw Roger Federer play.
I would say that Roger Federer is pretty amazing. And Manny Pacquiao – he’s such a tiny, little lightweight guy, but the way he fights makes people so excited.
I was in a band called Episode Six with Roger Glover, which was more of a harmony band, really. At one gig, there were a few dodgy characters leaning up against the wall of the venue – and we ended up joining their band. Purple was the talk of every musician in the country – they had something new and very exciting.
My closest friends are Roger Moore, who is an actor, Sean Connery, who is an actor, Terry O’Neill, who is a photographer, Johnny Gold, who was the boss of Tramp, and Leslie Bricusse, who is a composer.
To win against Roger was a big achievement for me.
The only actor who I think probably might have possibly taken a swing at me if he could have would be Burt Reynolds. He used to call Roger and me the Bruise Brothers, out of Chicago.
I am a big fan of players like Roger Federer, Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic and Leander Paes. I would love to see them play.
Roger Ailes champions women, whether it’s Paula Zahn, who worked for Fox, Greta Van Susteren – we’ve always had a woman in primetime – Megyn Kelly, myself; I had a primetime show.
I keep reminding myself I’m the same guy who was lucky enough to get my break because Roger Daltrey commissioned me to write the songs for one of his earlier albums.
For a while I was perfectly happy not performing with ‘The Who.’ From 1982 to 1989 I felt ‘The Who’ did not exist. I let the band go, in my heart. However, Roger Daltrey had other ideas. He would not let go.
It’s Roger Federer – this guy has about a million Grand Slams and done everything.
In my teens, I was very insecure. And so I invented Roger Moore.
I’ve never found a key to beat Roger.
If you lose three or four in a row, people start talking about retirement. They are not used to this sport like they are used to tennis. If you take a look at how many times Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer lost, it’s all part of the game. Soccer is no different: teams go through bad times and then rise again.
Roger Ailes, he’s incredible. He’s the one that created ‘The Five’ and came up with the idea for it.
It was a great privilege for me and my teammates to follow in the footsteps of sporting greats like Roger Federer and Tiger Woods.
I suppose Roger had the license to do anything that fitted the venue.
For years, my early work with Roger Penrose seemed to be a disaster for science. It showed that the universe must have begun with a singularity, if Einstein’s general theory of relativity is correct. That appeared to indicate that science could not predict how the universe would begin.
I did my acting performance in ‘Roger Rabbit.’ I think I did a voice-over also in ‘Osmosis Jones’ and I directed an episode of my show years ago, ‘Tales from the Crypt’ and that’s my endeavors in the non-producer oriented ranks.
When I interviewed profilers in 1984 in the basement of the FBI Academy at Quantico, VA., there were just four of them – Roger Depue, John Douglas, Roy Hazelwood, and Robert Ressler.
Roger Stone is one of my personal heroes.
I love Roger Deakin’s writing, and enjoyed making a programme about wild swimming for BBC4, inspired by his book about his own aquatic adventures, ‘Waterlog’.
‘Red Robin’ was just another audition, like a lot of other auditions. I just lucked out, and I got it. It’s a great group of people I get to work with. Roger Craig Smith and Will Friedle and a bunch of guys. It’s fun!
I really liked them, not just Syd, but all of them. Roger was very important, I thought, his contribution. And so was Rick’s organ playing. It was a good band. It became something else completely, obviously.
Roger. Clear the tower. I got a pitch and a roll program, and this baby’s really going.
Against Rafa or Roger or Novak, it’s about getting over that intimidation, believing you deserve a chance to take them out.
I would have loved to have met Roger Federer.
I was not athletically inclined. I was very quiet, introverted, non-confrontational. My three older brothers were athletes – basketball, football – but I was kind of a momma’s boy. Then one day, my brother Roger encouraged me to go to the boxing gym with him. I tried the gloves on, and it just felt so natural.
Roger Maris was as good a man and as good a ballplayer as there ever was.
I’ve been writing on my own. It’s like Roger Miller used to say, every now and then, like a dog having puppies, you have to crawl under the house and do it yourself.
Outside cricket, I idolise Roger Federer and in the gentleman’s game, I look up to Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid. Not only were they great players, but the way they conducted themselves off the field evoked respect.
I remember, once I was going through Nice airport with Roger Moore, and these kids came up and asked for our autographs. Afterwards, Roger said, ‘It must be very strange for you. I’m an actor, and signing autographs is part of what I do. But you’re a public figure who people don’t really know.’ He was right.
And that’s the mistake that was made with Steel Pier. Roger was caught between a rock and hard place. It would have cost a couple of million dollars more to take it to Boston or someplace first. So we opened about a month too early.
I think reviewers have become particularly venomous because, in a way, the power has been sucked from them. A 15-year-old can write a review on the Internet and it means as much as Roger Ebert’s review, and that just makes Roger Ebert mad, so he comes out harder and stronger.
But you know, really, if you think about it Roger and I and all critics really have one absolute essential part of our credentials and that is that you believe that that is actually what we think.
Guys like Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal know how to win matches, they don’t need to have as much confidence as other players.
Against Novak and Rafa, you have balls to hit, but they are so physically really tough. And Roger, he just takes position in the court. He tries to go forward all the time, go for the winners. Then you just don’t play tennis against him.
My first exposure to what Hollywood was like, behind the scenes, was when Joel Silver started screaming at Roger Rabbit at the beginning of ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit.’
I used to read a lot of Steinbeck, and I admired Roger Miller and Bob Dylan.
Roger Corman exploited all of the young people who worked for him, but he really gave you responsibility and opportunity. So it was kind of a fair deal.
All the coaches I’ve had have been important for me, whether it was Joel Muller at Metz, Rolland Courbis at Marseille, Manuel Pellegrini at Villarreal or Roger Lemerre with Les Bleus. All of them were important along the way, and each of them had faith in me and let me play.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ is one of my favorite movies of all time, and in fact it is maybe the first movie that I really loved in an adult way.
I got a couple on per album but my problem was that I wanted to sing the songs and not let Roger sing them.
I would love to have written Roger Zelazny’s first five books of ‘Amber.’ What a great idea he had about the shadings of reality!
I love Roger Stone. He’s very provocative, and I like that about him. He’s not afraid to take risk, and he’s not afraid to say things.
Oh, I like Roger Moore – he’s cheeky.
Greatest hits is easy because one has nothing to do – except that we both, Roger and I, felt that new songs should be there because I’ve been away for awhile.
I used to dress like Roger Taylor when I was ten because I thought he was cool. In high school, I used to dress like Stephen Perkins from Jane’s Addiction because I thought he was cool. You just want to be those guys when you’re that age.
