Space Quotes

I actually don’t invest in anything that is social, mobile, deals or ad networks simply because those are areas where there are so many players and so many other smart people in the space, I feel like I don’t have a competitive advantage. So I tend to go after things that are e-commerce, like healthcare.

— Aaron Patzer

In my solitude I have pondered much on the incomprehensible subjects of space, eternity, life and death.

The wonderful thing about 48 fps is the integration of live action and CG elements that is something I learned from ‘The Hobbit.’ We are so used to 24 fps and the romance of celluloid… but at 48 fps, you cannot deny the existence of these CG creations in the same time frame and space and environment as the live action.

— Andy Serkis

— Adam Sandler

A city like London is sociable in a sense that there are people gathering in bars and restaurants, concerts and lectures. Yet you can partake of all these experiences and never say hello to anyone new.

You live in the image you have of the world. Every one of us lives in a different world, with different space and different time.

— Alejandro Jodorowsky

— Alicia Keys

Sometimes, to keep things exciting, I decorate my house as if I owned a child. I’ll toss a tiny pair of shoes in the hallway or lean small wooden crutches in what I refer to as ‘the baby’s room,’ which is actually a tiny space where I make things. I continue to call it the baby’s room because it confuses people and it’s creepy.

— Amy Sedaris

I think the American West really attracts me because it’s romantic. The desert, the empty space, the drama.

Vinyl is democratic, as surely as the iPod is fascist. Vinyl is representational: It has a face. Two faces, in fact, to represent the dualism of human nature. Vinyl occupies physical space honestly, proud as a fat woman dancing.

— Adam Mansbach

I write in two very different places: my desk in Palo Alto, California, is piled high with myriad jumbled books and papers whose stratigraphy is a challenge.

— Adrienne Mayor

— Alan Vega

I don’t think so much about verbal comedy. I always think about visual comedy. I was raised watching silents, and I’m always thinking about how to make cinema, not good talking – although I want good talking. I’m much more interested in framing, composition, and orchestration of bodies in space, and so forth.

— Alexander Payne

I’ is the word everyone uses to refer to themselves. On the one hand, it points to a specific person, but it’s also this blank space that you can insert yourself into it’s a chute into empathy.

— Alexandra Kleeman

A lot of the films I like are more than fantasies – they’re movies fascinated by the technology of space exploration, and they try to honor the laws of physics. I watched the Gregory Peck movie ‘Marooned’ over and over when I was a kid.

— Alfonso Cuaron

I produce the way I would love to be produced: In ways to create the best conditions to make your movie, but also to create a space in which the director calls the shots.

— Anita Elberse

I think that certainly the artists of the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s were fighting a very conformist society, which didn’t give them enough space to live or create, and they were bucking all kinds of spoken and unspoken rules.

— Antony Garrett Lisi

The Fuse is a solar energy station in orbit 22,000 miles above the earth. But it’s more than just a big solar panel array.

— Atom Egoyan

So we want an Islamic state where Islamic law is not just in the books but enforced, and enforced with determination. There is no space and no room for democratic consultation. The Shariah is set and fixed, so why do we need to discuss it anymore? Just implement it!

— Abu Bakar Bashir

I’m really hopeful about the future of space exploration and human spaceflight. Civilization as we know it has been defined by exploration. You know, we need to go off and find out what’s around the next corner and what’s just beyond what we already know. It’s part of our being it’s part of our moral fiber to go off and explore.

— Alan G. Poindexter

I feel privileged and honored to have flown. It’s been a tremendous ride, looking back on the legacy and accomplishments, like the Hubble telescope and the launching of the International Space Station in 1998.

— Alan G. Poindexter

Flying in space is risky. It will never be safe, and the best thing we can do is manage those risks. It’s important for people, for human beings, to be in space because they’re adaptable and because they’re not pre-programmed software that can go off and do tasks that are appropriate for machines.

— Alan G. Poindexter

Right up until the late 18th century, when the first weighted lines were used to probe the ocean depths, many people believed the seas were bottomless – the watery equivalent of infinite outer space.

Louis CK knows that just because a joke is using space as a resource instead of something to be crammed like a hamper, this doesn’t mean a story isn’t happening.

— Andrea Seigel

It was the corner sweet-shop in Australia that first piqued my interest in interior design. I went into this space with a mixture of apprehension and excitement as a child.

— Anouska Hempel

I don’t think I could live with anybody. I had roommates, and it’s not for me. I like my space!

— Adam Riess

Your chemistry high school teacher lied to you when they told you that there was such a thing as a vacuum, that you could take space and move every particle out of it.

— Adam Riess

To me, there is something superbly symbolic in the fact that an astronaut, sent up as assistant to a series of computers, found that he worked more accurately and more intelligently than they. Inside the capsule, man is still in charge.

— Adlai Stevenson

We have this interesting problem with black holes. What is a black hole? It is a region of space where you have mass that’s confined to zero volume, which means that the density is infinitely large, which means we have no way of describing, really, what a black hole is!

— Andrea M. Ghez

The decision to write full-time meant I couldn’t afford to buy a house. A friend kindly offered me the use of his apartment in a thirty-six-story building full of newlywed couples in the southern area of Jakarta. I didn’t like my working space at first, but the scenery and everything going on outside have worked their magic on me.

— Andrea Hirata

Here’s the thing: I did one episode of Deep Space Nine, and I loved everybody that I worked with. People couldn’t have been kinder… But I had a really, really difficult time with the prosthetics.

— Andrea Martin

After making a movie, maybe you weren’t able to shoot many of your ideas, because a movie is only 1 1/2 or two hours long, but TV gives you space to film a lot of things.

— Andrew Sullivan

I always tend to think, even in residential projects, about what a space is being asked to do – where is it located, what are the circumstances, where can I attack the problem, so to speak. How can you create a narrative for people moving through it? How can you convey its character?

— Annabelle Selldorf

To me, the nicest luxury would be to have a room where I could keep all my books in one place – and have space for more.

— Annabelle Selldorf

Hard systems are everything we’re using right now – computers, phones, planes, the clothes you’re wearing, the room you’re in. Everything there involves 100% use of technology and expertise to make it, and nothing we make – including space exploration vehicles and so on – is complex. Everything we make is complicated. Nothing is self-renewing.

— Allan Savory

I was a supporting character in other people’s lives, which seemed right and familiar to me. I was also an outsider: English in the U.S., American in England, dogged yet comforted by that familiar feeling of alien-ness, which occupied that space where my sense of self should have been.

— Allegra Huston

When I define polarities in my work, I actually create the space between things. I point to the question I am actually interested in, without naming it.

— Alva Noto

When I was super young, I had an Atari and used to play ‘Space Invaders.’ Then I fell in love with ‘Mario Bros.,’ ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ and ‘Yoshi’ on Super Nintendo. I was quite a bit of a gamer as a kid when I think about it.

— Amber Rose

You don’t have to live on a farm to have chickens in some places, you just need a little bit of green space and a tidy chicken coop. To me, they’re nearly ideal pets. They feed us more often than we feed them! We have 2 chickens, Goldie and Paprika, and they each produce 1 egg a day, sometimes more.

— Amy Robach

It’s so cliche, but I love the feeling you get from improv that anything can happen. The audience is already accepting that there are no props or costumes or furniture, so the performers can be anywhere doing anything cut from underground to space, and it doesn’t matter.

— Andy Daly

I think here in America the space programme was such an enticing thing to be going on, that the thought of a family being able to go into space and live up there was really kind of mind-bending at the time.

— Angela Cartwright

Personally, I’ve realized that the tradition I thought of as too safe, too pretty, and too conventional is the space where women have been able to gain some practical ground. The area of music where we thought the status quo was really being upset – specifically hard rock – has actually remained the most male-dominated.

— Ann Powers

I don’t read reviews and I don’t know what to do with opinions, so I just lose them. They take up space, they become a process of manufacturing a persona, which I want to avoid.

— Anne Carson

Growing up in the ’50s and being in the ’60s, in that revolutionary time space, I thought freedom was what I was looking for. Slowly but surely, it became clear that the last thing I was interested in was freedom. Because if you’re going to be free, you have to be free from something.

— Anthony Braxton

The best bands kept making records and had this evolution, where by the end, by their commercial phase or sellout phase, the records are from outer space.

— Ariel Rechtshaid

As a child, I spent a lot of time wandering around the prairies and in the hills, and there was a sense that it was such a wide-open space, and there was kind of a feeling of potential. I could imagine anything happening there.

— Arthur Slade

The more evident it is that a certain company is going to become the market leader in a big market space, then the higher the valuation goes because the risk has been dramatically reduced.

— Audrey MacLean

In the context of general relativity, space almost is a substance. It can bend and twist and stretch, and probably the best way to think about space is to just kind of imagine a big piece of rubber that you can pull and twist and bend.

— Alan Guth

Now, what space ultimately is – I should confess, I think most physicists believe – we don’t yet know.

— Alan Guth

Xerox did OK in moving to digital in the commercial space. They didn’t do well in the consumer market, but they’re not a consumer brand. They don’t even know how to spell consumer.

— Antonio Perez

For a long time, we’ve worked on detecting planets with whatever was at hand, making use of existing small telescopes or even amateur telescopes. It’s time to move on to the next stage.

— Andrew Gould

When I was younger, humans went to the moon when I was about 4 years old, and I imagined that as I got older and became an adult that traveling in space was going to be fairly common and something that we all did. So I grew up believing that I’ll be an astronaut just like these guys were that were going to the moon.

— Andrew J. Feustel

I grew up in Lake Orion, Mich. What was best about Lake Orion where, where we grew up was it was a suburb of Detroit but had a lot of open space around.

— Andrew J. Feustel

Not that the propositions of geometry are only approximately true, but that they remain absolutely true in regard to that Euclidean space which has been so long regarded as being the physical space of our experience.

— Arthur Cayley

We never waste space saying, ‘On the one hand.’ We just state an opinion in a Godlike voice.

— Arthur Christiansen

I’m convinced we all have a God-shaped space in us, and until we fill that space with God, we’ll never know what it is to be whole.

— Ann B. Davis

I had a book that was given to me as a kid that was called ‘Faeries.’ It was this dark, sinister book with pictures that used to scare me because they were these creepy little creatures. But, I was always really drawn to that fantasy world, more than a sci-fi world, in terms of outer space stuff.

— Anna Silk

The thing about hip-hop today is it’s smart, it’s insightful. The way they can communicate a complex message in a very short space is remarkable.

— Barack Obama

What you lose in blindness is the space around you, the place where you are, and without that you might not exist. You could be nowhere at all.

— Barbara Kingsolver

Before we had airplanes and astronauts, we really thought that there was an actual place beyond the clouds, somewhere over the rainbow. There was an actual place, and we could go above the clouds and find it there.

— Barbara Walters

As the earth spins through space, a view from above the North Pole would encompass most of the wealth of the world – most of its food, productive machines, doctors, engineers and teachers. A view from the opposite pole would encompass most of the world’s poor.

— Barry Commoner

We judge on the basis of what somebody looks like, skin color, whether we think they’re beautiful or not. That space on the Internet allows you to converse with somebody with none of those things involved.

— bell hooks

Oh, don’t let’s ask for the moon. We’ve already got the stars.

— Bette Davis

An awful lot of England is slowly eroding, in ways that I find really distressing, and an awful lot of it is the hedgerows… We’re reaching the point where a lot of the English countryside looks just like Iowa – just kind of open space.

— Bill Bryson

NASA is an engine of innovation and inspiration as well as the world’s premier space exploration agency, and we are well served by politicians working to keep it that way, instead of turning it into a mere jobs program, or worse, cutting its budget.

— Bill Nye

But investment in space stimulates society, it stimulates it economically, it stimulates it intellectually, and it gives us all passion.

— Bill Nye

— Buzz Aldrin

Bringing an asteroid back to Earth? What’s that have to do with space exploration? If we were moving outward from there, and an asteroid is a good stopping point, then fine. But now it’s turned into a whole planetary defense exercise at the cost of our outward exploration.

— Buzz Aldrin

Instead of planning the retirement of the Space Shuttle program, America should be preparing the shuttles for their next step in space: evolving, not shutting them down and laying off thousands of people.

— Buzz Aldrin

There may be aliens in our Milky Way galaxy, and there are billions of other galaxies. The probability is almost certain that there is life somewhere in space.

— Buzz Aldrin

Retain the vision for space exploration. If we turn our backs on the vision again, we’re going to have to live in a secondary position in human space flight for the rest of the century.

— Buzz Aldrin

If we can conquer space, we can conquer childhood hunger.

— Buzz Aldrin

The purpose of going to Mars is for humans to first begin to occupy, permanently, another planet in the solar system. The astronauts or pilgrims, whatever you might call them, are going to be very historically unique human beings.

— Buzz Aldrin

Before deciding what to do about national space policy, Obama set up an outside review panel of space experts, headed up by my friend Norm Augustine, former head of Lockheed Martin and a former government official.

— Buzz Aldrin

I came to dedicate my life to opening space to the average person and crafting designs for new spaceships that could take us far from home. But since Apollo ended, such travels were only in our collective memory.

— Buzz Aldrin

We should’ve asked China to be a portion of the space station. We should’ve worked out ways that we can… just give away the technology that we have that puts things up into space, with cooperation up above the atmosphere that’s needed to help each other.

— Buzz Aldrin

Absolutely the United States should lead in space, for the survival of the United States. It’s inspiring for the next generation. If we lose leadership, then we’ll be using Chinese capability to inspire Americans.

People come up to me and say, ‘It’s too bad the space program got canceled.’ This is not the case, and yet that is what most of the public thinks has happened.

— Buzz Aldrin

Can you imagine, in 2030, taking a space cruise on the very ship that carried the first human beings to Mars? I can’t believe that people wouldn’t line up for that possibility.

— Buzz Aldrin

There are many people talking about access to space and, ‘How can we make that cheaper? How can we turn that into a Southwest Airlines versus the big airlines?’

— Buzz Aldrin

In space, you don’t get that much noise. Noise doesn’t propagate in a vacuum.

— Buzz Aldrin

If you want poets in space, you’ll have to wait.

— Buzz Aldrin

Anthony and the Magic Picture Frame’ tells it like it really was in America’s early space program – the adventure, the risks, and the rewards.

— Buzz Aldrin

Landing in the ocean and waiting for the Navy to come alongside and haul you out of the drink is what space capsules require. And after the capsule is recovered, it would take weeks for the ship to return to port.

— Buzz Aldrin

When the time comes to start building deep space transports and refueling rocket tankers, it will be the commercial industry that steps up, not another government-owned, government-managed enterprise.

— Buzz Aldrin

— Baba Kalyani

In 2014, we have some new activities and new order wins in the non-automotive space.

— Baba Kalyani

— Barry McGuire

Once music ceases to be ephemeral – always disappearing – and becomes instead material… it leaves the condition of traditional music and enters the condition of painting. It becomes a painting, existing as material in space, not immaterial in time.

— Brian Eno

Every moment is as real as every other. Every ‘now,’ when you say, ‘This is the real moment,’ is as real as every other ‘now’ – and therefore all the moments are just out there. Just as every location in space is out there, I think every moment in time is out there, too.

— Brian Greene

In any finite region of space, matter can only arrange itself in a finite number of configurations, just as a deck of cards can be arranged in only finitely many different orders. If you shuffle the deck infinitely many times, the card orderings must necessarily repeat.

— Brian Greene

In the far, far future, essentially all matter will have returned to energy. But because of the enormous expansion of space, this energy will be spread so thinly that it will hardly ever convert back to even the lightest particles of matter. Instead, a faint mist of light will fall for eternity through an ever colder and quieter cosmos.

— Brian Greene

I wouldn’t say that ‘The Fabric of the Cosmos’ is a book on cosmology. Cosmology certainly plays a big part, but the major theme is our ever-evolving understanding of space and time, and what it all means for our sense of reality.

— Brian Greene

If you move something 10 pounds through space and then stop suddenly, there’s a little overshoot. When you transfer weight from one leg to another, there’s a certain way that it happens.

If you look at a lot of animated movies, they don’t pay attention to how things move through space.

— Brad Bird

I think if you have a really big, heavy person, there’s a feeling of an invisible puppeteer jerking them around in space. They don’t feel like they are moving themselves.

— Brad Bird

When Facebook acquired Oculus, the game changed immediately. You saw big companies jumping in. You saw people like Google getting fully committed, and then Microsoft came along with HoloLens – there was a lot of stuff that people were doing before, but now the space really ignited.

— Brendan Iribe

When I was a child, I wanted to… go into space! To go to Mars. I wanted to explore and explore and explore. I wanted to go to the Lost World in South America – I was heartbroken to discover there were no dinosaurs I still don’t accept it.

— Brian Blessed

I’m a fully trained cosmonaut and have completed 800 hours training, which has made me the No. 1 civilian reserve ready to visit the International Space Station. I am determined to go up, and I want to explore the Moon, Mars and beyond!

— Brian Blessed

I loved dinosaurs, I loved space, and I thought maybe I’d be the first paleo-astronaut.

— Bill Maris

And of course, I absolutely loved making Lost in Space as a kid.

— Bill Mumy

From the age of four, I was a huge comic fan and still am. When Lost in Space came along it was like being in a huge comic so we jumped at the chance of being part of that project and it proved to be a good choice.

— Bill Mumy

Well, I’ve been a big fan of comic books since I was a little kid. In fact, I used to write and draw my own comic books when I was on the old Lost in Space series.

— Bill Mumy

I started playing the guitar when we started filming the pilot to ‘Lost in Space,’ which was way back in December of 1964, and there’s a little bit in the pilot that was used in the first season where Will Robinson is sitting around some bad foam rubber rock playing and singing ‘Greensleeves.’

— Bill Mumy

I think ‘Lost in Space’ certainly shifted from being an ensemble adventure series about a family facing the unknown alien environment to this trio of comedians – Dr. Smith, the Robot, and Will Robinson being the straight guy. It definitely changed its tone over the three seasons and 84 episodes we did.

— Bill Mumy

In my earlier paintings, I wanted the space between the picture plane and the spectator to be active.

— Bridget Riley

I think growing up in such a small town – before cell phones, before the Internet, before Facebook, before we had access to people’s interiors – there was a great deal of space between people’s lives. I spent a lot of time imagining into the lives of the people I grew up with.

— Bill Clegg

In some sense, prose fiction is just a way of unlocking a space. If I can unlock the space, it comes out and it’s vivid, I find that I care about it, and it’s part of me.

— Ben Marcus

To all the women that I’ve offended, I had no intention to be offensive, to violate any physical or emotional space. I was trying to establish personal relationships, but the combination of awkwardness and hubris led to behavior that I think many found offensive.

— Bob Filner

I steal props from ‘SNL’ a great deal. Almost every sketch I’m in, I try to grab something from it, so I have a storage space full of props.

— Bobby Moynihan

With any luck, by the time NASA’s space probe hits Pluto, you’ll be booking a spaceflight with a privately run suborbital airline.

— Burt Rutan

In the coming era of manned space exploration by the private sector, market forces will spur development and yield new, low-cost space technologies. If the history of private aviation is any guide, private development efforts will be safer, too.

— Burt Rutan

Space travel is the only technology that is more dangerous and more expensive now than it was in its first year. Fifty years after Yuri Gagarin, the space shuttle ended up being more dangerous and more expensive to fly than those first throwaway rockets, even though large portions of it were reusable. It’s absurd.

— Burt Rutan

The photographs of space taken by our astronauts have been published all over the place. But the eye is a much more dynamic mechanism than any camera or pictures. It’s a more exciting view in person than looking at the photographs. Of course, I personally am sick and tired of hearing people talk like that: I want to see it myself!

— Burt Rutan

Our goal is to show that you can develop a robust, safe manned space program and do it at an extremely low cost.

— Burt Rutan

In 12 or 15 years, there will be routine, affordable space tourism not just in the U.S. but in a lot of countries.

— Burt Rutan

To allow public access to orbit, we would need breakthroughs that would lower the cost by a lot more than an order of magnitude and increase safety by a factor of 100 as compared to every launch system used since the first manned space flight. I think airborne launch will be a significant part of the safety solution.

— Burt Rutan

As long as the plots keep arriving from outer space, I’ll go on with my virgins.

— Barbara Cartland

Point-to-point transit via low orbit could dramatically speed up international flights, connecting the world even further. And safe, consistent space travel opens up the possibility of commercial space stations, trips to the moon and exploration beyond.

— Ben Parr

With every inch of land on Earth now catalogued by our satellites, the stars are the next place we as a species must travel. And with a booming world population that will hit 9.1 billion in 2050, large-scale space travel may become a necessity.

— Ben Parr

Trending topics helped make Twitter a more relevant metric of what the world was talking about at any given moment. Google has worked for years in the space, most notably with Google Trends and Hot Searches, but Google+ offers the search giant the ability to see what is truly trending in real time.

— Ben Parr

Even if someone is already in your market space, ask yourself whether you can approach it from a different angle and thereby secure your own customer base.

— Benjamin Cohen

Grilling is an easy tradition to start at any age! To get started, one only needs a modest investment in equipment and a little bit of outdoor space.

— Barton Seaver

Directing is very close to choreography you deal with space, time, emotions, lighting, making beautiful images.

— Benjamin Millepied

At the same time, new concepts and abstractions flow into the picture, taking up the task of describing the universe without reference to such time or space – abstractions for which our language lacks adequate terms.

— Benjamin Whorf

I remember going to London with my father in 1968 to see ‘2001: A Space Odyssey.’ I just soaked in that movie. To me, that was real it was going to happen.

— Brian Binnie

Hollywood films are alienating to the spectator because they use too much dialogue, too much explication and leave no space for the viewer. They depress me.

— Bruno Dumont

I always sleep on my own. I can’t sleep with somebody else. Always separate bedrooms, bathrooms and closets. I’m very individual and I want my own space.

— Bruno Tonioli

Madonna can still produce a catchy pop song, but she hasn’t expanded her artistic vocabulary since the 1990s. Her concerts are glitzy extravaganzas of special effects overkill. She leaves little space in them for emotional depth or unscripted rapport with the audience.

— Camille Paglia

We must admit with humility that, while number is purely a product of our minds, space has a reality outside our minds, so that we cannot completely prescribe its properties a priori.

— Carl Friedrich Gauss

It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.

— Carl Sagan

When many astronauts go to space, they see the insignificant size of the earth and vastness of space, and they become very religious, because they have seen the Signs of Allah.

— Cat Stevens

With ‘Acid Rap,’ I allowed myself to be really open-minded and free with who I allowed into my musical space. I wanted to make a cohesive product, but I also just want to make a bunch of dope songs inspired by whatever sounds I liked.

— Chance The Rapper

There are moments of existence when time and space are more profound, and the awareness of existence is immensely heightened.

— Charles Baudelaire

The people you see in Nigeria today have always lived as neighbors in the same space for as long as we can remember. So it’s a matter of settling down, lowering the rhetoric, the level of hostility in the rhetoric is too high.

— Chinua Achebe

Any time you make a movie where you’re living in a certain head space for an extended period of time, it’s tough not to take a little piece home with you.

— Chris Evans

The majority of the world is empty space. Empty space, empty space, empty space. All that we see in the world, the life, the animals, plants, people – it’s all empty space. That’s amazing!

— Chris Evans

When we first get to space, we feel sick. Your body is really confused. You’re dizzy. Your lunch is floating around in your belly because you’re floating. What you see doesn’t match what you feel, and you want to throw up.

— Chris Hadfield

The world, when you look at it, it just can’t be random. I mean, it’s so different than the vast emptiness that is everything else, and even all the other planets we’ve seen, at least in our solar system, none of them even remotely resemble the precious life-giving nature of our own planet.

— Chris Hadfield

When I did my spacewalks, it was during space station construction. So the shuttle was docked to the fledgling ISS at the time. So we would always stay tethered.

— Chris Hadfield

I’m really looking forward to it, if you can imagine floating weightless, watching the world pour by through the big bay window of the space station playing a guitar just a tremendous place to think about where we are in history.

— Chris Hadfield

For the last several years and culminating in six months in orbit next year, I’ve been training for my third space flight. This one is almost in a category completely different than the previous two, specifically to live in on the space station for six months, to command a space ship and to fly a new rocket ship.

— Chris Hadfield

We have never lost a crew member on the space station, but of course, the Columbia accident. I was – I’d already been an astronaut for a decade when the crew of Columbia was killed. And I went through test pilot school. Rick Husband and I were out at Edwards at test pilot school together. He was the commander of Columbia.

— Chris Hadfield

One place that I looked at a lot from space and which looks alluring is New Zealand, especially the North Island. It’s a big broad valley with a river flowing through it, and you can see the wine-making dryness of the land.

— Chris Hadfield

If you don’t like airline food, you’ll probably have the same impression of space station food. I would not fly to space for the food.

— Chris Hadfield

In the late ’60s, I was seven, eight, nine years old, and what was going on in the news at that time that really excited a seven, eight, nine year old boy was the Space Race.

— Chris Hadfield

Almost everything worthwhile carries with it some sort of risk, whether it’s starting a new business, whether it’s leaving home, whether it’s getting married, or whether it’s flying in space.

— Chris Hadfield

The beauty of the space station, and of human spaceflight, is that it is now at a level of maturity where you can invite people on-board, which is what I worked so hard to do on social media and all the videos I made.

— Chris Hadfield

To be one of the world’s top space robotic arm operators is a necessary skill for an astronaut, but it doesn’t have much carry-over.

— Chris Hadfield

It was remarkable to see from space how predictable people are. Our homes and towns are almost all in places with moderate temperatures, and they generally have the same shape – a thinly occupied outer blob of suburb surrounding a densely populated core, all based around a ready source of water.

— Chris Hadfield

The International Space Station is a phenomenal laboratory, an unparalleled test bed for new invention and discovery. Yet I often thought, while silently gazing out the window at Earth, that the actual legacy of humanity’s attempts to step into space will be a better understanding of our current planet and how to take care of it.

— Chris Hadfield

Space is not a good place to mix foods because as soon as you take something out of the package, it becomes a flying object.

— Chris Hadfield

NASA was going to pick a public school teacher to go into space, observe and make a journal about the space flight, and I am a teacher who always dreamed of going up into space.

— Christa McAuliffe

If I can get some student interested in science, if I can show members of the general public what’s going on up there in the space program, then my job’s been done.

— Christa McAuliffe

I will have a one-hour program called the Mission Watch, where I will describe details of the mission and give additional information about the lessons from space.

— Christa McAuliffe

I told them how excited I would be to go into space and how thrilled I was when Alan Shepard made his historic flight, and when John Kennedy announced on the news that the men had landed safely on the moon, and how jealous I was of those men.

— Christa McAuliffe

The Twilight Zone’ wasn’t around with the kids. They think going up in space is neat. Within their lifetime, there will be paying passengers on the shuttle.

— Christa McAuliffe

Some people think happiness is a luxury, but it’s a necessity. You need to make space for it in your life.

— Christie Brinkley

Painting is a lie. It’s the most magic of all media, the most transcendent. It makes space where there is no space.

— Chuck Close

In 1966, NASA took over in space, and it has been a bureaucratic mess ever since.

— Chuck Yeager

The superior man does not, even for the space of a single meal, act contrary to virtue. In moments of haste, he cleaves to it. In seasons of danger, he cleaves to it.

— Confucius

I have on many occasions spoken my mind from stage. I have offered organizations table space by the merch booth. I have donated a dollar-a-ticket, or the entire guarantee, to different causes. I have registered voters. I have played on behalf of political candidates.

— Conor Oberst

The world is a nested space, and so we have our brain as a person, and people are members of teams, and teams are part of business units, and business units are parts of corporations, and corporations are part of industries, which are part of economies.

— Clayton M. Christensen

I try to keep the idea that there’s an audience in as little space in my mind as possible, but you can’t erase it entirely, the idea that when you’re sitting down to write a song, people are going to hear it.

— Conor Oberst

These false barriers that we’ve erected of space and race, all these illusions that we’ve allowed to infect us like toxins, we’ve got to rid ourselves of that. We are a better nation when we are ultimately united in a common purpose and a common cause.

— Cory Booker

I am absolutely certain that life can exist in outer space, move around, find a new aqueous environment.

— Craig Venter

Since my own genome was sequenced, my software has been broadcast into space in the form of electromagnetic waves, carrying my genetic information far beyond Earth. Whether there is any creature out there capable of making sense of the instructions in my genome, well, that’s another question.

— Craig Venter

Space X’s Elon Musk wants to colonize Mars with modules where earthlings can live. My teleporting technology is the number one way those individuals will get new information, new treatments of diseases that will occur on the planet, and new food sources.

— Craig Venter

Now that our kids are getting older, they need their space. We dug out the basement so they will have a place to go crazy in the wintertime. My son is already talking about how he’s going to make a skateboard ramp. It’s just a mosh pit down there, so they can do whatever they want. We’re not even going to finish it.

— Candice Olson

I’ve dealt with a lot of couples over the years, and most cite the battle for closet and bathroom space as one of the most frequent causes of marital discord.

— Candice Olson

I am in the process of starting a nonprofit organization that gives rescued animals a home in a simulated wild environment and, for those who have been tested on, who are disabled, aggressive, etc., their own space to live out their days.

— Casey Affleck

I think a Moon base is not necessary to get to Mars, but I think it will be helpful. It would give you a chance to develop and mature some systems long duration, deep space stuff and you’re close enough to get some help, via radio from Earth.

— Charles Duke

Science fiction was rocket-mad for about 40 years until aerospace hit a brick wall about 1970. I would not write off space colonisation or exploration completely, but we are profoundly ill adapted for going boldly into outer space.

— Charles Stross

Look how far the human race has come in terms of air and space travel in the last hundred years. So in the next couple of thousand years, you’ve got to believe that we’re going to be able to do all kinds of amazing things.

— Chris Squire

Geez, all that money we waste on space exploration just think how many bombs that would buy!

— Craig Bruce

I have a theory that women are generally given space and appointed to jobs when the situation is tough. I’ve observed that in many instances. In times of crisis, women eventually are called upon to sort out the mess, face the difficult issues and be completely focused on restoring the situation.

— Christine Lagarde

I’ve always wondered what it would be like if somebody from outer space landed with three heads. Then all of a sudden everybody else wouldn’t look so bad, huh? Well, OK you’re a little different from me but, hey, ya got one head.

— Cyndi Lauper

I used to think about how nice it would be to visit the planets. Of course, I didn’t expect to see in my lifetime what has happened. I knew it would happen some day, but it came along faster than I at first thought.

— Clyde Tombaugh

Everyone who’s in America spends the first few years not experiencing it. The person is frightened by the newness of the place and doesn’t see things. Her emotional universe becomes the entire universe. And then when she thinks of home, her distance in space can seem like a distance in time.

— Colm Toibin

I had to redo my last house after the pipes burst, and something was lost in the renovation. The soul of the old space was compromised.

— Cindy Sherman

Decide where and when you want to write. I like space, and silence is an inspiration to me.

— Cecelia Ahern

I’m most happy when I am writing at night, because I need space and time to write.

— Cecelia Ahern

I feel like every time I start up, it’s like a truck you have to get into 15th gear, so you very solely crank into that mental space where you feel really immersed in the world of the book and then you can just kind of go. But there’s just that few days of frustration to get to that point.

— Chad Harbach

When the International Space Station is finally launched, it will be fitted with special nickel-hydrogen batteries weighing a total of several tons, with a lifetime of just five years, requiring spares to be brought up from Earth at literally astronomical expense.

— Charles Platt

And then as we played more and more as a trio, it became more and more of a situation where we realized we really knew how to use the fourth member of the group – that space. The thing about the trio is that it’s the biggest sound you can have with the smallest unit.

— Charlie Hunter

Ultimately, at the end of it, it’s just trying to get into that space where you feel like you’re hitting the right thing and you’re making music. And it feels intuitive rather than being counterintuitive.

— Charlie Hunter

The basic idea of ‘The Venture Brothers’ was taking the world of ‘Jonny Quest’ and jumping back into 30 years later, seeing how someone who grew up like Jonny – with that kind of space race enthusiasm and disregard for other cultures – would turn out. Dr. Venture is a boy genius who didn’t grow up to be what he should have been.

— Christopher McCulloch

So it’s really hard for a horn player to comp. But I’m totally into trying to switch those paradigms around and find a little magic space where that works, and try to mine that.

— Charlie Hunter

When you’re an expert in a subject, you can retain new factoids on your favorite topic easily. This only works for the subjects you’re truly passionate about, though. Baseball fans can reel off stats for their favorite players, then space out on their own birthday.

— Clive Thompson

If we stop exploring space, we’re going to lose the same part of us that found vaccines and penicillin, the part that searches for cures to cancer and AIDS.

— Corbin Bernsen

In Italy there’s perhaps a little less space than in Spain, but there’s certainly as much sunshine.

— Carlo Rubbia

Yet, upon the whole, the space I traversed is unlikely to become the haunt of civilized man, or will only become so in isolated spots, as a chain of connection to a more fertile country if such a country exist to the westward.

— Charles Sturt

Profound subject matter can be encompassed in small space – for proof, look at any sonnet by Shakespeare!

— Cynthia Ozick

If you’re playing your character and you’re running into all these people who know who you are and treat you in a way that doesn’t pertain at all to the character, it takes you out of it more, so when you’re alone in a city where people don’t know you, you can kind of pretend even more and get into the head space of where you need to be.

— Chris Messina

At the moment I’m doing this space movie, so I’m obsessed with physics and space travel. I know three months down the line it’s gone. Then I’ll be able to superficially say stuff about space.

— Cillian Murphy

On one hand, to be able to go from one direction in the sky to study such an object to another direction to study another object, and on the other hand to be able to maintain accurately the position in space.

— Claude Nicollier

The Next Generation Space Telescope, which will be located much further away from the Earth than the Hubble Space Telescope presently is, will also explore the infrared part of the spectrum.

— Claude Nicollier

It seems to me, thinking of it, that there must be some universal plan which set in motion the orbiting of the electrons about the nucleus and the slower, more majestic orbit of the galaxies about one another to the very edge of space.

— Clifford D. Simak

I was painfully shy, so my aunt suggested to my mum that me and my brother go to Stage 84, a performing arts school in Yorkshire. I’ve probably romanticised it in my head, but I seem to remember that in the space of an hour’s drama workshop, I was transformed. I went in really shy, and I came out full of confidence.

— Christian Cooke

A chair, it’s like a sculpture. It starts as a thought and then becomes an idea, something I might think about for years. When the time is right, I express it on paper, usually as a simple line in space. Finally, it takes shape.

— Charles Pollock

Basically, most good science in space flight has to do with the behavior of the human body in space. That is where we are lacking info, and where info can only be obtained by flying in space.

— Charles Simonyi

James’s expedition to Scotland is wholly imaginary, though there appears to have been space for it during Henry’s progress to the North to pay his devotions at Beverley Minster.

— Charlotte Mary Yonge

Life can be less mysterious than we make it out to be when we try to think about how it would be on other planets. And if we remove the mystery of life, then I think it is a little bit easier for us to think about how we live, and how perhaps we’re not as special as we always think we are.

— Chris Adami

An architect must remember that the people working or living in his building need space – to dream, to be quiet, to find beauty somewhere.

— Christian de Portzamparc

For NASA, space is still a high priority.

— Dan Quayle

Space is almost infinite. As a matter of fact, we think it is infinite.

— Dan Quayle

People need to be made conscious of a very simple reality: we have no choice but to share this planet, this small blue sphere floating in the vast reaches of space, with all of our fellow ‘passengers.’

— Daisaku Ikeda

Well, I think one doesn’t really have to invent this memorial space, because it is already there. And it is speaking with a voice and, you know, 4 million of us came to see the site.

— Daniel Libeskind

People tell me I look mournful. They say, ‘Cheer up, Dan, it’s not that bad!’ Sometimes I just look into space, which freaks people out. If I was ever required to do anything other than look haunted, I could. I’m a happy person.

— Daniel Radcliffe

The whole world appears to me like a huge vacuum, a vast empty space, whence nothing desirable, or at least satisfactory, can possibly be derived and I long daily to die more and more to it even though I obtain not that comfort from spiritual things which I earnestly desire.

— David Brainerd

I had always planned to make a large painting of the early spring, when the first leaves are at the bottom of the trees, and they seem to float in space in a wonderful way. But the arrival of spring can’t be done in one picture.

— David Hockney

It doesn’t matter the kind of music, it doesn’t matter whether it’s a cowboy hat or a yarmulke. I don’t care if it’s outer space or pop, the spirit is the same.

— David Lee Roth

Music deals with time and timing. It’s so magical, but when you get into it, every little sound and every little space between the sounds, it’s critical, so critical. And if it’s not there, it not only feels wrong, but it ruins things.

— David Lynch

Everyone is on the internet but they’re not all talking with each other. There are groups upon groups out there, but they don’t talk to one another. So while the internet brings everyone into a shared space, it does not necessarily bring them together.

— David Lynch

People need to know that they have all the tools within themselves. Self-awareness, which means awareness of their body, awareness of their mental space, awareness of their relationships – not only with each other, but with life and the ecosystem.

— Deepak Chopra

Consciousness, rather than being an epiphenomenon of matter, is actually the source of matter. It differentiates into space time, energy, information, and matter. Even though this view is an ancient view, an ancient world view, it is now finding some resonance amongst a few scientists.

— Deepak Chopra

Make an empty space in any corner of your mind, and creativity will instantly fill it.

— Dee Hock

MoMA is doubling its space, and I decided to raise the money for it.

— David Rockefeller

2001: A Space Odyssey’ is a movie that really impressed me as a teenager. And also ‘Blade Runner.’ And ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ is also one of my favorites. I’m always looking for sci-fi material, and it’s difficult to find original and strong material that’s not just about weaponry.

— Denis Villeneuve

We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the Earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow. A new national pride will stir our souls, lift our sights, and heal our divisions.

— Donald Trump

Space is big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the drug store, but that’s just peanuts to space.

— Douglas Adams

I don’t know how anyone gets anything done in cities. How can you live somewhere like London or New York, when there are 81 things to do every night? Awful. Give me solitude and space any time.

— Douglas Coupland

Writing is largely about time, while visual art is largely about space.

— Douglas Coupland

Most of us still haven’t grasped the fact that everything we commit to the digital space – not just our public blogs and broadcast tweets, but every private text message, email, and voicemail is likely to be stored and accessible. Forever.

— Douglas Rushkoff

The easiest way to figure out who the customer is in an online space is to figure out who is paying for the thing. Usually, the people paying are the customers. So on Facebook, the people paying are marketers. That makes them the customers. And it means we are the product being delivered to those customers.

— Douglas Rushkoff

To the casual observer, the Dropbox demo video looked like a normal product demonstration, but we put in about a dozen Easter eggs that were tailored for the Digg audience. References to Tay Zonday and ‘Chocolate Rain’ and allusions to ‘Office Space’ and ‘XKCD.’ It was a tongue-in-cheek nod to that crowd, and it kicked off a chain reaction.

— Drew Houston

If you’re going to go to the moon, you don’t shoot the rocket right at the moon. You have to go at it obliquely.

— Drew Houston

WWE is a space where I thrived, and I loved, and I still do. I love connecting with an audience that is the greatest thing about going back to WWE.

— Dwayne Johnson

Toasting is basically what you call rapping. It came off of playing the beats at the parties, however it be. You find a space in the beat, and you have somebody live just basically saying rhymes over the beat.

— Damian Marley

When you are playing with a few players in the pocket, it doesn’t leave me isolated. I have a bit more space to work and be higher up the pitch.

— Dele Alli

At the center of President Obama’s strategy for dealing with the Islamic State is an empty space. It’s supposed be filled by a ‘Sunni ground force,’ but after more than a year of effort, it’s still not there. Unless this gap is filled, Obama’s plan won’t work.

— David Ignatius

Empty political space will be filled by extremists unless the United States and its allies build strong local forces that can suppress terrorist groups and warlords both. When the U.S. creates such local forces, it must be persistent. If it withdraws from these efforts, as America did in Iraq in 2011, it invites mayhem.

— David Ignatius

I try to pack light with a folding leather suit bag. Anything more than five days, I need to check in my luggage. What takes the most space? Chef jackets, aprons and tools.

— Daniel Boulud

I went and worked at a TV station in Stillwater. I was actually account manager for commercial accounts, selling ad space and everything.

— Daniel Cormier

Yet another proposal would have us rocket the waste into the sun, but, as you’re probably aware, about one in ten of our space shots doesn’t quite make it out of the earth’s gravitational field.

— David R. Brower

Right now, I think I have time to be three things, in no particular order: a father, a husband, and a filmmaker. That’s why I don’t go out – I have no space for it. I feel like one of those main things would suffer.

— Derek Cianfrance

I believe Britishness is defined not on ethnic and exclusive grounds but through shared values our history of tolerance, openness and internationalism and our commitment to democracy and liberty, to civic duty and the public space.

— David Blunkett

Over the past 50 years we got versions of X-ray specs and space vacations, and even death rays. But the X-ray specs don’t fit on your face – they’re big things that screen your luggage for guns. Space vacations are real, but they cost $20 million. We have death rays, but you have to be a triple Ph.D. to play with them.

— Daniel H. Wilson

Right now, I think robots are where it’s at. And yes, I’m biased. Robots and space, because with home rocket kits and Lego Mindstorm sets, people can get involved. I was raised on Transformers and GoBots, so I can’t imagine what kids who are building real robots are dreaming about.

— Daniel H. Wilson

As people flock to urban centers where ground space is limited, cities with green walls and roofs and skyscraper farms offer improved health and well-being, renewable resources, reliable food supply, and relief to the environment.

— Diane Ackerman

Anyone working in the media can tell you that there seems to be an always-ready-to-explode segment of the populace for whom offense is a fate worse than anything imaginable. You’d think offense is one of the most calamitous things that could happen to a human being right up there with the loss of a limb, or just missing a parking space.

— Dick Cavett

I love building spaces: architecture, furniture, all of it, probably more than fashion. The development procedure is more tactile. It’s about space and form and it’s something you can share with other people.

— Donna Karan

Realizing this, I knew that the actual space of a room could be broken down and played with by planting illusions of real light (electric light) at crucial junctures in the room’s composition.

— Dan Flavin

For years, I longed to hear Armstrong describe what it was like to contemplate Earth from 238,900 miles away. Former Space Center director George Abbey once told me that many NASA astronauts felt that looking at Earth was akin to a religious experience.

— Douglas Brinkley

When I first joined the Irvine Company, I realized that less than 11,000 acres were designated as open space in the original master plan, and that just didn’t seem adequate to me. So, I began the lengthy process working with public and community organizations to add more open space.

— Donald Bren

My ultimate dream is for the Irvine Ranch to be known and celebrated as much for the outstanding communities we’ve planned and built as it is for what is not developed. The beneficiary being the 50,000 acres of undeveloped land that is now permanently preserved and conserved as Open Space and parklands.

— Donald Bren

To do a television show, one can be sort of spoiled. You get to have your own trailer, your own space – that sort of thing.

— Danielle Panabaker

My office has two buildings that function like the right and left sides of the brain. There’s a room where everything is being edited for an upcoming project, but you can pull out of that into a tranquil space to work in a different, more solitary medium. It’s an architectural unfolding of the process instead of just one chaotic structure.

— Doug Aitken

One of the core reasons for creating ‘Station to Station’ was to provide a space for exploration and cultural friction between different mediums. It should be natural for mediums like music, film and art to cross over, and we wanted to empower that process.

— Doug Aitken

I’m looking forward to coming back, back to Earth, the landing, the views.

— Duane G. Carey

Being in space, I’m really looking forward to working with this team of folks that I’m with.

— Duane G. Carey

Now, I’ve never flown in space but the folks who have say that on landing day, you know, you’ve just spent maybe a week and a half, sometimes two weeks in orbit and you’re used to the things happening slowly in space.

— Duane G. Carey

The question we ask is – if there is life on other planets, should we expect it to be based on the same molecules, i.e. be universal – or should we expect it to depend on the local conditions, i.e. on the planet’s geochemistry. So to find out, we try experiments on biomolecules, starting with such geochemistry conditions.

— Dimitar Sasselov

Harlem was a development, a developer’s dream and a place where residents had more space and more amenities than ever before. The subway reached 145th street about 1904, and it seemed that Harlem’s destiny was to become largely a preserve of successful ethnics relocating and arriving. Then, overnight, the bust took place.

— David Levering Lewis

It was only when I started to dig my heels in that I started to realize that’s what I needed to do – that nobody was going to open the door for me, that I had to make some space.

— Dave Holland

I don’t know… it’s just too much fun to wonder about what life would be without gravity. I just started thinking about outer space more as an adult than I probably ever did as a kid. That was also inspiring, the concept of being stuck to the earth.

— Dave Pirner

It was the point where things became much more abstract and less literal than in the bulk of the film, which was hardcore rockets and space and planets – all a fairly straightforward evolution from what I had been doing before.

— Douglas Trumbull

You look at women like Lena Dunham, you look at how women are kind of crafting their own space on the screen. I want to add to that.

— Danai Gurira

I’m obviously really opinionated, but as a producer, you don’t necessarily want the person you’re working with to try to impress you – you want them to just be themselves. Then you can edit or mess around with what they’ve come up with. But you have to allow the artist that space.

— Danger Mouse

I love the freedom of having my own space and my own place and doing things on my terms, and not really having to think about anybody else’s schedule.

— Danielle Fishel

Not long after I got my test pilot qualification, I realised there was no manned space flight programme in the U.K., and there was unlikely to be one.

— David Mackay

It’s very sad that there’s going to be a hiatus in manned space flight from the U.S. The Shuttle was a fantastic, hugely complex vehicle. It was inevitable it would come to an end, but this is the opportunity for the commercial world to get involved. As the Shuttle era ends, another window of opportunity opens.

— David Mackay

We go up just into space – space is most commonly accepted to be 100 kilometres above the earth’s surface, and we go up just beyond that to about 350,000 ft.

— David Mackay

I watched the moon landing as a boy, and I thought that was the most exciting thing ever, going into space, orbiting Earth and exploring other planets. That looked fantastic.

— David Mackay

For Virgin Galactic’s customers, it is transportation to the most amazing experience of their lives. I very much look forward to sending some Scots into space.

— David Mackay

As you get older, the physical abilities decrease, which is particularly frustrating because your brain gets so good! So as you are becoming less technically or physically able, younger dancers are emerging who need the space to perform.

— Deborah Bull

Even up here on Vancouver on the weekends, I go work out in a studio space.

— Dule Hill

My parents wanted to name me Karim Hill. My aunt always liked the name Dule, from this actor Keir Dullea, who was in ‘2001: Space Odyssey.’ That’s how I got the name Karim Dule Hill. Growing up, I never liked the name Karim because people would ask me, ‘Could you dunk like Kareem Abdul Jabbar?’

— Dule Hill

I just don’t think there are any rules to color. You have a small space with no windows? Put lamps in there, make it dramatic, paint the ceiling black. Do something with it. If it’s dark, accentuate the darkness.

— David Bromstad

I grew up with horses and cattle, running around on dirt hills with this real sense of space. We didn’t have neighbours – well, the nearest ones were kilometres away.

— Deborah Mailman

Star Wars,’ ‘Doctor Who,’ ‘Forgotten Realms,’ even ‘Firefly’ and ‘The X-Files’ have shared world novels and other media. I can’t help but notice these settings have large shelf space in bookstores, so their publishers and authors are getting something right.

— David Conyers

For days after the launch, Sputnik was a wonderful curiosity. A man-made moon visible by ordinary citizens, it inspired awe and pride that humans had finally launched an object into space.

— David Hoffman

Today’s particle physics describe light as a crumple in space, and we may have deformed space in such a way that they noticed something peculiar – and they had the ability to investigate it.

— Dwight Schultz

The atom was unleashed in 1946, right when all this stuff was occurring. And the bomb’s incredible release of energy and light may have signalled somebody in a dimension which is sharing space with us very closely.

— Dwight Schultz

I don’t think it’s too late for ‘The War of the Worlds’ to come true. I’m talking about it from the standpoint that which you need to have and own things – to breed, to think, to create – is going on everywhere, not just on this planet or in the space around it.

— Dwight Schultz

When I played in Holland, I always tried to lob the goalkeeper. People used to say, ‘Oh, you’re always only trying to make a nice goal’. But I said, ‘Listen, if the goalie is a little bit off his line, how much space do you have on his left or right?’ It’s not a lot. ‘And how much space do you have above him?’

— Dennis Bergkamp

Although as a boy I had dreamed about going into space, I had completely forgotten about that until one day I received a call from an astronaut, who suggested that I should join the program.

— David M. Brown

In an endless jungle of websites with text-based content, a beautiful image with a lot of space and colour can be like walking into a clearing. It’s a relief.

— David McCandless

For Web-based services, owning the .com is very important when considering search and discovery. But consider your channel. For companies playing in the mobile app space, the dot com may be less important – it’s about status and searchability in the app store.

— David Rusenko

I think it’s like that for people who don’t remember 1969 first-hand. It’s that sense of ‘old hat.’ Of ‘been there, done that.’ Space shuttles, space stations, communications satellites, GPS – they’re all part of our everyday, taken-for-granted world in 2009, not part of an incredible odyssey.

— David Weber

Pleasure is a shadow, wealth is vanity, and power a pageant but knowledge is ecstatic in enjoyment, perennial in frame, unlimited in space and indefinite in duration.

— DeWitt Clinton

It helped me in the air to keep my small mind contained in earthly human limits, not lost in vertiginous space and elements unknown.

— Diana Cooper

Yes, people do come across the street to say hi, but as they approach and get near, my perception of space begins to dissolve, and a new interest takes over that is primarily emotional, and with it comes a desire to touch, which may be a human interest, but not the interest of my work.

— Diego Giacometti

We see parts of each other, and we put them together. But if I want to see you in totality, you need to move away we need space between us. Across the street, I can see all of you at once, but then I also see this huge vista of space surrounding you, coming in and compressing you.

— Diego Giacometti

You can’t do opera when already from the 10th row you can only see little dolls on the stage. In such an enormous space you can’t put much faith in the personal presence of the individual singer, which is reflected in facial expressions, among other things.

— Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau

I don’t think poetry will die, but I think that poetry does demand a certain kind of attention to language. It does demand a certain space in order to read it, and I think that space is somewhat threatened by the lack of attention that people have and the amount of time that they give to things.

— Edward Hirsch

A couple of games, I played up front when Diego Costa was not there. We know to create movement – not even to get the ball, but create space for others. Now I understand football is not always with the ball at my feet.

— Eden Hazard

I like to play as a No. 10. I think I have more freedom offensively. For Belgium, we have full backs who run hard and create a lot of space, which is good, and I like to play there.

— Eden Hazard

I’ve become convinced that Los Angeles is going to become the next contemporary art capital – no other city has more contemporary gallery space than Los Angeles. We’ve come into our own, finally.

— Eli Broad

I have the infinite galaxy from ‘2001’ as my screensaver – so if I space out while I’m writing and it goes to screensaver, I can just stare off into the stars.

— Eli Roth

Two things I’m obsessed with are the countryside and fields and being in the open space and body parts, so you’ll hear me mentioning body parts and human anatomy. I’ve listened to my songs and I think I am quite visual and I talk about bones and flesh a lot.

— Ellie Goulding

I started doing sculpture in 1959. I had no commissions then. They were painted, similar in style to the paintings… At a certain point, I decided I didn’t want an edge between two colors, I wanted color differences in literal space.

— Ellsworth Kelly

In order for us to have a future that’s exciting and inspiring, it has to be one where we’re a space-bearing civilization.

— Elon Musk

I would like to fly in space. Absolutely. That would be cool. I used to just do personally risky things, but now I’ve got kids and responsibilities, so I can’t be my own test pilot. That wouldn’t be a good idea. But I definitely want to fly as soon as it’s a sensible thing to do.

— Elon Musk

The space shuttle was often used as an example of why you shouldn’t even attempt to make something reusable. But one failed experiment does not invalidate the greater goal. If that was the case, we’d never have had the light bulb.

— Elon Musk

What I’m trying to do is, is to make a significant difference in space flight. And help make space flight accessible to almost anyone.

— Elon Musk

If anyone has a vested interest in space solar power, it would have to be me.

— Elon Musk

It is theoretically possible to warp spacetime itself, so you’re not actually moving faster than the speed of light, but it’s actually space that’s moving.

— Elon Musk

If you look at space companies, they’ve failed either because they’ve had a technical solution where success was not a possible outcome, they were unable to attract a critical mass of talent, or they just ran out of money. The finish line is usually a lot further away than you think.

— Elon Musk

Land on Mars, a round-trip ticket – half a million dollars. It can be done.

— Elon Musk

If we drive down the cost of transportation in space, we can do great things.

— Elon Musk

In Google’s world, public space is just something that stands between your house and the well-reviewed restaurant that you are dying to get to.

— Evgeny Morozov

You can plant a church and grow a church. That’s not that hard to do, but it’s harder to be a viable source of transformation in a city or your time or space.

— Erwin McManus

If there is enough space on radio for Busted and McFly, who are basically the same band, or for 50,000 versions of Stereophonics and Coldplay, there must be enough room for all of us.

— Estelle

Some astronauts describe the routine flushing of urine into space, where the freezing temperatures turn the droplets into a cloud of bright, drifting crystals, as being among the most amazing sights they saw on an entire voyage.

— Eugene Cernan

I do believe there is life in outer space. Mathematically, there has to be, and if you believe as I do that there is a creator of the universe, then how can we be so arrogant to believe he created life here and nowhere else?

— Eugene Cernan

We don’t have the capability today to put a human being in space of any kind, shape or form, which is absolutely, totally unacceptable when we got the greatest flying machine in the world sitting down at Kennedy in a garage there with nothing to do.

— Eugene Cernan

After Apollo 17, America stopped looking towards the next horizon. The United States had become a space-faring nation, but threw it away. We have sacrificed space exploration for space exploitation, which is interesting but scarcely visionary.

— Eugene Cernan

When we’re in that kind of childish space, we’re more genuine and feel more comfortable with our friends.

— Evan Spiegel

We find them smaller and fainter, in constantly increasing numbers, and we know that we are reaching into space, farther and farther, until, with the faintest nebulae that can be detected with the greatest telescopes, we arrive at the frontier of the known universe.

— Edwin Powell Hubble

Plan Nine From Outer Space’ for a new generation, ‘Battlefield Earth’ is set in the year 3000, after the beings from the planet Psychlo have conquered our planet in only nine minutes.

— Elvis Mitchell

Having gone through so many of the personal things I’ve gone through, its about creating an (online) space for girls to be heard. I don’t profess to have all the answers. But Ask Elizabeth is a space where girls are not alone.

— Elizabeth Berkley

When we are fully conscious and aware, we actually know when we are about to overreact. When we are mindful, we have the mental space and are aware of when our moods change. When we are mindful, we are aware of when our mental models are being challenged and when expectation does not meet with reality, which can trigger an emotional response.

— Elizabeth Thornton

If you live in a small space, you should do the things that make it feel luxurious.

— Emily Procter

Astronauts are very professional and when they’re preparing for launch, they prepare for it as the most serious endeavor of our lives.

— Ellen Ochoa

I’ll tell you, being involved in human space flight, it is an emotional endeavor. I think it brings in the highest highs and the lowest lows.

— Ellen Ochoa

That’s what we want to do here at Johnson Space Center. I think what we have always brought to NASA and brought to the country is trying to push the boundaries, trying to go to the next level.

— Ellen Ochoa

Well, with so many space shuttle missions that we’ve done, I think it’s just sort of natural that each one hasn’t necessarily gotten the attention that the early ones did.

— Ellen Ochoa

One of the big things about space exploration is that it is as expensive as it is complicated, and you need all the countries of the world to help if you want to accomplish big goals.

— Ellen Stofan

With the mission to Mars, the whole world wants to get involved. So we actually have 13 different space agencies from around the world working on the global exploration road map.

— Ellen Stofan

In the space of three weeks, I met a fair bunch of the guys who were just starting those little programmers’ co-ops, and everybody was talking about starting businesses.

— Esther Dyson

The newspapers loved pinup pictures of pretty young swimmers, and as a national champion, I got more than my share of space in the sports pages.

— Esther Williams

The Internet has become a bunch of interlinked but linguistically distinct and culturally specific spaces. There’s some interface between them, but there’s a lot less than there was years back when we were sort of pretending that this was one great global space.

— Ethan Zuckerman

Hierarchical formulations died because their wedding cake levels posited a multiply fractured cosmos that does not match the Space Age revelation of a unified universe in which the earth is clearly in, rather than separated from, the heavens. Hierarchical representations do not reflect what either the world or we are like.

— Eugene Kennedy

Most people hugely underestimate the amount of ’empty space’ we have in our country. Fly over the U.K., and you see that human settlement does not fill up the U.K. at all. It accounts for something of the order of 15 per cent of the landmass.

— Evan Davis

Boundaries are actually the main factor in space, just as the present, another boundary, is the main factor in time.

— Eduardo Chillida

Moreover, all our knowledge of organic remains teaches us, that species have a definite existence, and a centralization in geological time as well as in geographical space, and that no species is repeated in time.

— Edward Forbes

That space between the white lines, that’s my office. That’s where I conduct my business.

— Early Wynn

The 13-episode model lends itself to a more serialised format, which is nice and gives writers a chance to breathe some space into it.

— Eddie Cahill

I’m always looking for complicated characters in fiction about whom I can feel a dozen feelings at once – in the space of a single paragraph, even.

— Edan Lepucki

I wrote in the cellar for a number of years. I needed a private space, and it had a furnace, so it was always warm.

— Edith Pearlman

Each organism, no matter how simple or complex, has around it a sacred bubble of space, a bit of mobile territoriality which only a few other organisms are allowed to penetrate and then only for short periods of time.

— Edward Hall

I certainly remember building model rockets. It was fun to watch the rocket blast into the air, suspenseful to wonder if the parachute would open to bring the rocket safely back.

— Eric Allin Cornell

I was born in 1960 and can still tell you the name of every astronaut from Mercury to Apollo. If I had a chance, I’d love to go into space on one of the privately developed space crafts.

— Eric Betzig

In the army you feel violated – there’s no private space. Writing was a life-saver, a way of recovering private territory.

— Etgar Keret

When you have a couple hundred people in one huge space, that’s gonna lead to jokes and it’s a breeding ground for practical jokes and teasing.

— Erin Duffy

Hence, within the space of two generations there has been a complete revolution in the attitude of the trades-unions toward the women working in their trades.

— Florence Kelley

If you work in a public space, you have to be aware that no one is buying a ticket.

— Florentijn Hofman

I want people to get inspired by public space – their space. People tend to forget about it because they do the daily thing, but putting up these sculptures breaks the routine.

— Florentijn Hofman

In Holland, we have a saying: ‘A knife cuts on two sides.’ With the rubber duck, I’m trying to show people what they haven’t been seeing in their public space. When the rubber duck is there and when it’s gone, you know.

— Florentijn Hofman

Human uploads have such a natural advantage over present-day people in the environment of space, it’s exceedingly unlikely flesh-and-blood beings will ever engage in interstellar travel.

— Frank Tipler

And what we know, or think we know, about the universe of space and time is changing very quickly.

— Fred Saberhagen

I wanted to get us a place of our own with a little bit more space. The kitchen is just huge, because my mom… lives there, man, and she loves being in the kitchen.

— Freddy Adu

Most architects think in drawings, or did think in drawings today, they think on the computer monitor. I always tried to think three dimensionally. The interior eye of the brain should be not flat but three dimensional so that everything is an object in space. We are not living in a two-dimensional world.

— Frei Otto

If I were to do a movie about Apollo 13, I’d be at NASA studying what it took to go into space. It’s part of your job to go deep, to interview the right people.

— F. Gary Gray

Aviation – and space travel, in particular – have always been especially captivating.

— Felix Baumgartner

There is so much to do in my house, in every little corner. It’s just like anybody, it’s like one step at a time. I try to decorate one space and a pipe breaks or whatever – you know how it is.

— Fergie

I love my music, so I want to produce, write, and serve my music. I’ve had to learn about EQ frequencies and programming and space and clutter and how to be a better piano or bass player – everything.

— FKA twigs

Los Angeles County is one of the most park-poor urban areas in the nation, and the San Gabriel Valley – stretching from Pasadena to Pomona – is especially starved for open space.

— Frances Beinecke

The San Gabriel Valley, stretching from Pasadena to Pomona, is especially starved for open space. The valley has a rich array of ethnically diverse communities, but it also has some of the highest rates of childhood obesity and diabetes in the state.

— Frances Beinecke

We need new medical approaches to preventing and/or curing disease. We need new scientific approaches to generating, storing, and being more efficient with energy. Maybe we need more space exploration. Maybe we need more undersea exploration.

— Fred Wilson

Shooting on location and dressing locations in Los Angeles is shockingly expensive, especially when you’re talking about webseries-level budgets, so the opportunity to build our sets in YouTube’s space gives us a lot more room in our budget in being able to create the world of ‘VGHS’ properly.

— Freddie Wong

It’s not going to be just humans colonizing space, it’s going to be life moving out from the Earth, moving it into its kingdom. And the kingdom of life, of course, is going to be the universe.

— Freeman Dyson

But, after all, the aim of art is to create space – space that is not compromised by decoration or illustration, space within which the subjects of painting can live.

— Frank Stella

If someone comes up to me, 90 percent of the time it’s about Office Space.

— Gary Cole

But generally speaking, people weren’t fired, art jobs were very hard to get, so something really calamitous had to happen to a person who was working there in order for you to find a space.

— Gil Kane

San Francisco lags behind other communities in providing a vital, vibrant and ecologically sustainable urban canopy, as well as open space in the city.

— Gavin Newsom

I will waste an extraordinary amount of time, you know. And if it’s not watching television, I’ll be sitting staring out of the window. And yes, I know there’s the idea of the artist, sitting there doing nothing while things are going on, but actually, no. It’s vacant space. I’m thinking about the laundry.

— Glen Duncan

The Lamb’s Club is going to be a luxury bar and grill we’re not doing an overly fancy restaurant. We wanted to make a space that people will come to every day, almost like a very high-end bistro.

— Geoffrey Zakarian

It’s a mistake for Hollywood to impose themselves on the gaming space. Not only is it arrogant, but it hasn’t really worked.

— Gore Verbinski

When I was a teenager, I was a huge computer nerd. I went to computer programming camp. I went to space camp.

— Graham Moore

Seeing the space future through science fiction can be difficult. Much science fiction of the early era, the 1950s through the ’70s, took an expansionist view.

— Gregory Benford

Science fiction writers didn’t predict the fade-out of NASA’s manned space operations, and they weren’t prepared with alternative routes to space when that decline became undeniable.

— Gregory Benford

Because of my job, my hair gets played with a lot on set, so I try to give it little bit of breathing space when I’m not working.

— Gugu Mbatha-Raw

As many have noted, the peril for authors is that our work space is too easily our play space.

— Guy Gavriel Kay

We think of divinity as something infinitely big, but it is also infinitely small – the condensation of your breath on your palms, the ridges in your fingertips, the warm space between your shoulder and the shoulder next to you.

— G. Willow Wilson

I think Windows 8 is a catastrophe for everyone in the PC space. I think we’ll lose some of the top-tier PC/OEMs, who will exit the market. I think margins will be destroyed for a bunch of people.

— Gabe Newell

A broad trend I’m completely obsessed with is mobile commerce. Like completely. I’m completely convinced that everybody’s going to be buying from their mobile devices. Whoever can claim that space or be in that space, I’m very interested in.

— Gary Vaynerchuk

I’m not the best audience for that because I’m not a great science-fiction fan. I just never got off on space ships and space costumes, things like that.

— Gary Oldman

The ocean is 90% unexplored. It’s a great canvas to paint Aquaman stories across, just like Green Lantern has space. It’s more organic, which makes it different and interesting. It’s alien, but it’s terrestrial.

— Geoff Johns

We have the ability to completely change our environment to go… to take on… to inherit, in a certain sense, things far beyond our DNA, and that’s inheritable. And we can see evolution in action as our ideas evolve and undergo a kind of Darwinian selection not at the DNA level. And we can go off into space.

— George M. Church

If we go into space, we need enhancements that handle radiation and osteoporosis… or else we’re dead. So what seems like an enhancement in one generation becomes life and death in another generation.

— George M. Church

You really have to try hard to create space and, at least for a time, stop the political world from rushing in. The important thing is to remain sane.

— George Osborne

A pedestal is as much a prison as any small, confined space.

— Gloria Steinem

We will build new ships to carry man forward into the universe, to gain a new foothold on the moon and to prepare for new journeys to the worlds beyond our own.

— George W. Bush

Innumerable spirits and souls, when spread out through the same space, do not interfere with each other such that the diffusion of one would affect the diffusion of an infinity of others.

— Giordano Bruno

My home kitchen is airy, with a gas stove, a stainless-steel island table in the center and granite countertops. It’s very modest but there’s tons of counter space, so you can slap down three or four cutting boards.

— Grant Achatz

While American football is very structured and linear and static – where everyone lines up, and there’s a burst, and it happens – soccer is like the cosmos. It’s like constellations. It’s bodies moving in space. It’s a very spherical game.

— Gabriel Luna

I always think of space-time as being the real substance of space, and the galaxies and the stars just like the foam on the ocean.

— George Smoot

I’ve always been interested in the idea of space exploration. When I was younger it was just a dream, but the theory of rockets being able to travel through space was very much alive. I found it very exciting.

— Gerry Anderson

It’s more fun having him as everyman in the 25th Century. It is better to concentrate on what this planet will be like 500 years from now, and not be dealing with little aliens in space and all that related stuff.

— Gil Gerard

In any culture, if information is to maximise in a contextual space, and new meanings be born, the original story has to have substance – there’s gotta be gold in them thar hills.

— Giles Foden

Space exploration promised us alien life, lucrative planetary mining, and fabulous lunar colonies. News flash, ladies and gents: Space is nearly empty. It’s a sterile vacuum, filled mostly with the junk we put up there.

— Graham Hawkes

In football, time and space are the same thing.

— Graham Taylor

Now, in the space of a year, we’ve spent 450 percent more for power than we did the year before, and bought essentially the same amount of power. This year, that number’s likely to go up. That can’t go on forever and have us continue to be the economic engine for America.

— Gray Davis

253′ has a little bit of time in it, but basically, everything’s happening at once in a small space, and you’re exploring the space. ‘What happens next?’ is not the question that you’re asking or answering. It’s where do you go, and why should you go there?

— Geoff Ryman

My first date was with Endeavour, and my last date is going to be with Endeavour, as far as space shuttles are concerned.

— Gregory H. Johnson

The building of the International Space Station is something wonderful, and it will show us how to take the next step beyond low-Earth orbit.

— Gregory H. Johnson

I left Aerospace because I wanted to go build, and put spacecraft together.

— Gwynne Shotwell

My type of basketball is about how to create space, how to maneuver, how to get your shot off.

— Hakeem Olajuwon

I archive a lot of my clothes and have them wrapped up and in boxes. I call them ‘little tombs’ and keep them in a storage space… I would never get rid of the dress I wore on the night I won my Oscar. When I die, someone can have it, but not a minute before!

— Halle Berry

It’s hard because I think I fall into this in-between space where there’s something that’s innately feminine about me, and there’s also something that’s kind of androgynous. I carry myself somewhere in between, and I think my music lends itself to that as well.

— Halsey

The idea of ‘Badlands’ was creating a space with sound, which is a really difficult thing to do.

— Halsey

But I have to add – and this answers your other question – this catholicity in time and in space is only meaningful for me if there is, at the same time, a concentration on the Gospel.

— Hans Kung

I always liked the visuals to be choice and at the same time minimalist. And, I love black boxes. After all, that’s what theatre is, it’s an empty space, and it’s both limited and unlimited because the space is the space, but what you can do with people’s imaginations is really endless.

— Harold Prince

The way the Establishment deals with people like me is to ignore them. When you become unignorable, they will try to smear you, and that’s what I feared for a long time. Now I have somehow vaulted into this space where it’s difficult for someone to smear me because it would look as though they were being vindictive and spiteful.

— Heather Brooke

Working away from my husband for long periods is good and bad. It stops us taking each other for granted and gives us space, but I miss him terribly.

— Helen Mirren

In any relationship, after the first year is over, you can’t help but want your own space.

— Helena Bonham Carter

We call the fates of the Titanic and the Concordia – as well as those of the space shuttles Challenger and Columbia – ‘accidents.’ Foreseeing such undesirable events is what engineers are expected to do. However, design trade-offs leave technological systems open to failings once predicted, but later forgotten.

— Henry Petroski

When a young non-white male is stopped and searched at the whim of a police officer, his idea of personal space, privacy and self esteem are shattered, to say nothing of his Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment protections. The damage goes deep quickly and stays. Stop & frisk, as well as a tactic, is also an incitement.

— Henry Rollins

Now and then, someone is able to look at an empty space, conclude it would be a great place to start a revolution, and bravely go forward.

— Henry Rollins

In any game, you have an enemy coming at yourself that you have to shoot. If you go back to ‘Space Invaders,’ they shoot at you when they come at you, so how are you going to protect yourself? You’re going to shoot, and that is a typical videogame.

— Hideo Kojima

We were young, we were pilots, and we were hungry to test the new technology of ‘space machines.’ And we all wanted to be first.

— Gherman Titov

It’s a pity I flew only once. A space flight is like a drug – once you experience it, you can’t think of anything else.

— Gherman Titov

The sports space is so full of opinion that you aren’t hearing from the athletes just speaking for themselves. We are such a Twitter-oriented society with radio talk shows, TV talk shows and social media – what you are missing is the authentic, unfiltered aspect of who these people are.

— Hannah Storm

If the chain symmetry is maintained in the crystal lattice, the possible occurrence of different space groups is considerably restricted.

— Giulio Natta

The government only makes restrictive rules, they don’t show you what to do so you know, OK, here’s where we need this many apartments, with open space, playgrounds, kindergartens.

— Harry Seidler

I think, as journalists, we sometimes are afraid to enter into the emotional lives and the complications of the lives of the people we write about – we don’t really have the space and the room to deal with those things. But as a novelist, that’s precisely what you’re writing about.

— Hector Tobar

The city of London, within the walls, occupies a space of only 370 acres, and is but the hundred and fortieth part of the extent covered by the whole metropolis.

— Henry Mayhew

Because there is a larger awareness that transcends time and space, an awareness is available after death.

— Henry Reed

Not until the space shuttle started flying did NASA concede that some astronauts didn’t have to be fast-jet pilots. And at that point, sure enough, women started becoming astronauts.

— Henry Spencer

Whether solid rockets are more or less likely to fail than liquid-fuel rockets is debatable. More serious, though, is that when they do fail, it’s usually violent and spectacular.

— Henry Spencer

Sometimes people wonder why aeroplanes are so cheap and rockets are so expensive. Even the most superficial comparison shows one obvious difference: aeroplane engines use outside air to burn their fuel, while rockets have to carry their own oxidisers along.

— Henry Spencer

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

You don’t go into space just for the science. Economically, it is not worth it. I think the reason we should be in space is for the exploration it’s the human endeavour.

— Helen Sharman

I’d love to go back to space, I don’t know any astronaut who doesn’t want to.

— Helen Sharman

Politicians and the government have become too interested in short-term gains. Of course, if you look at the direct financial returns in the short term, human space flight is expensive. But they need to look longer term.

— Helen Sharman

People are fascinated by space flight. It makes them interested in science, gets them asking questions and motivates them.

— Helen Sharman

I still dream about being on the space station with the feeling of being weightless. The weightlessness is the most amazing, relaxing and natural feeling.

— Helen Sharman

I wanted to improve the suburban office building to create a great urban space in a suburban environment with all that implies about interaction, collaboration and creativity.

— Helmut Jahn

For me, what takes up most of the space in my closet are suits. I wear a lot of suits and jackets. But I think every man needs a black suit at home. You can never go wrong in a black suit. But in terms of style, I think it’s about being comfortable in what you wear.

— Henrik Lundqvist

We want to stay on this tour bus together as long as we possibly can. I’m sure a lot of bands are like, ‘I need my own space.’ But we don’t. I want to be with these guys forever.

— Hillary Scott

Everything that exists is information, and everything that is informative also exists. The infosphere is not a virtual space that is distinct from the real world. Rather, the world itself is increasingly being considered an information space and part of the infosphere.

— Hubert Burda

As a designer, the mission with which we have been charged is simple: providing space at the right cost.

— Harry von Zell

Think of a forest, then imagine taking 10,000 trees and squeezing them together until there is essentially no space between them. That’s what the neocortical column looks like.

— Henry Markram

If you gave kids peas that didn’t look like peas and said they were a space shuttle, they’re much more apt to eat them because it’s now playtime.

— Hod Lipson

I’ve always written. At the age of six or seven, I would get sheets of A4 paper and fold them in half, cut the edges to make a little eight-page booklet, break it up into squares and put in little stick men with little speech bubbles, and I’d have a spy story, a space story and a football story.

— Ian Rankin

The negotiation of city space has been made more difficult with the idea that redevelopment is an improvement for some vague future – but it’s never like that, is it? Once you get there, for economic reasons you have to generate the next project – so you’re immediately starting to dig up something else, and so it goes on.

— Iain Sinclair

I think we always view people who make us feel uncomfortable and appear to intrude on our middle-class cozy space, we view them with, if not hostility, at least suspicion, discomfort, embarrassment.

— Ian Anderson

Her death has had a huge effect on me. It felt like a big hole appeared on my left side – apparently your left side is your mother – which I thought could never be filled. Now I think what you have to do is fill it with yourself because your mother is part of you. I’m easing into that space, using it and being comforted by it.

— Imelda Staunton

I don’t mind solitude. I love talking to other people, but I do need my space.

— Iris Chang

Absolute space, in its own nature, without regard to anything external, remains always similar and immovable. Relative space is some movable dimension or measure of the absolute spaces, which our senses determine by its position to bodies, and which is vulgarly taken for immovable space.

— Isaac Newton

From journalism I learned to write under pressure, to work with deadlines, to have limited space and time, to conduct and interview, to find information, to research, and above all, to use language as efficiently as possible and to remember always that there is a reader out there.

— Isabel Allende

I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.

— Jack London

Well, I think that Augusta is not the same golf course that I grew up on. Bobby Jones’ philosophy was giving you space off the tee if you put it in the right side of the fairway, you ended up getting the right angle to the green.

— Jack Nicklaus

Yes, he wanted me to do Funny Games before, which I didn’t want to do because the film was very theoretical – the way people experience violence on screen. There was very little space for fiction, it was more like a sacrifice for the actors than anything else.

— Isabelle Huppert

Firstly I did it in this huge theatre in Avignon, then to smaller places, then bigger places. You have to change the volume of the voice, give more or less. The way you have to relate to space makes it like sculpture.

— Isabelle Huppert

From the beginning I thought about working with the body in movement, the space between the body and clothes. I wanted the clothes to move when people moved. The clothes are also for people to dance or laugh.

— Issey Miyake

The modern artist is working with space and time, and expressing his feelings rather than illustrating.

— Jackson Pollock

My fascination has been the space between cloth and the body, and using a two-dimensional element to clothe a three-dimensional form.

— Issey Miyake

Puffy produced four of the tracks on the album. Those are the four songs that are collaborations between Puffy and me. And he gives me my space to work even when we work together, like with my producer and my vocal coach.

— Jennifer Lopez

When it comes to space, I see it as my job, I’m building infrastructure the hard way. I’m using my resources to put in place heavy lifting infrastructure so the next generation of people can have a dynamic, entrepreneurial explosion into space.

— Jeff Bezos

I start from one point and go as far as possible. But, unfortunately, I never lose my way. I ‘localize,’ which is to say that I think always in a given space. I rarely think of the whole of a solo, and only very briefly. I always return to the small part of the solo that I was in the process of playing.

— John Coltrane

We had 83 different space research projects on my last space flight in ’98, and they covered the whole gamut.

— John Glenn

An end of something means the beginning of something else, and I don’t think that something else is going to be the death of the manned space program.

— John Glenn

The space station is the most unique laboratory we’ve ever built. The reason we have it is to do research on materials, people, medical matters, pharmaceuticals – the possibilities are nearly endless.

— John Glenn

I have values. But morals are Christian. There’s no religion here. Values. Don’t hurt when you don’t need to, but don’t let anybody step over that line – it’s an invisible line, but it’s respect for somebody’s space.

— John Lydon

Trees go wandering forth in all directions with every wind, going and coming like ourselves, traveling with us around the sun two million miles a day, and through space heaven knows how fast and far!

— John Muir

At the very least we should be given a bit of credit and a little bit of space, and maybe the media should think we could help them discover why English teams do not win European competitions.

— Jose Mourinho

The novel is not so much a literary genre, but a literary space, like a sea that is filled by many rivers.

— Jose Saramago

A word carries far, very far, deals destruction through time as the bullets go flying through space.

— Joseph Conrad

One trick, known as the journey method or ‘memory palace,’ is to conjure up a familiar space in the mind’s eye, and then populate it with images of whatever it is you want to remember.

— Joshua Foer

If somebody comes up to me, it’s because they’re moved by something I’m moved by. I’ve never taken a job I didn’t love… So when somebody’s coming up to me, or they’re writing, they’re in the same space I am in.

— Joss Whedon

If it hadn’t been for the Cold War, neither Russia nor America would have been sending people into space.

— James Lovelock

Technology is supposed to make our lives easier, allowing us to do things more quickly and efficiently. But too often it seems to make things harder, leaving us with fifty-button remote controls, digital cameras with hundreds of mysterious features and book-length manuals, and cars with dashboard systems worthy of the space shuttle.

— James Surowiecki

We have spent billions to go to the moon – we go to this lesser satellite called the moon and say we are in space, but we are in space right now we just don’t feel ourselves to be in space. Some forms of art and some forms of spirituality do give us that sense.

— James Turrell

Generally, we use light to illuminate other things. I like the thingness, the materiality of light itself. So it feels like it’s occupying the space, making a plane, being something that was there, not just passing through. Because light is just passing through. I make these spaces that seem to arrest it for our perception.

— James Turrell

I’ve always been interested in arrival, and coming to a space, and even to looking back at where you were.

— James Turrell

When you write a song, it may come from a personal space, but it very seldom actually represents you. It comes out of a sort of mood of melancholy, somehow. It’s almost theatrical.

— James Taylor

If I have to point to something specific with the way I move my camera, I love to do it with a wide lens. I like to show you as much of the space as I can, even if I’m following a character.

— James Wan

Lest those islands still seem to you too remote in space and time to be relevant to our modern societies, just think about the risks… of our increasing globalization and increasing worldwide economic interdependence.

— Jared Diamond

The more space and emptiness you can create in yourself, then you can let the rest of the world come in and fill you up.

— Jeff Bridges

When all of us are acknowledged as the human equals that we really are, there will be no space left for bullying. It will no longer be wrong to choose one thing over another.

— Jason Mraz

I’ve played Madison Square Garden and Jones Beach several times, but I personally don’t enjoy those larger venues. I much prefer theater or a performance space.

— Jason Mraz

Television programming is the number one topic on Twitter, and dozens of start-ups in the social space are linking second-screen experiences. People no longer need to sit on the same couch to enjoy a show together.

— Jay Samit

Even in making objects, as soon as you start to get the feeling that some form of craft is coming into place, you realize that everything is wrong. Because craft is really just a fetish. It is wasted energy. It’s about the object, some space which has nothing to do with the human.

— Jeff Koons

When someone lives as a minority, they experience the world differently than those of us who live in the majority. We may occupy the same physical space, but we don’t occupy the same psychic space.

— Jennifer Granholm

When museums are built these days, architects, directors, and trustees seem most concerned about social space: places to have parties, eat dinner, wine-and-dine donors. Sure, these are important these days – museums have to bring in money – but they gobble up space and push the art itself far away from the entrance.

— Jerry Saltz

The most powerful argument of all for saving open space is economics in most states, tourism is the number two industry.

— Jim Fowler

Regular panelists on shows can be terrifying. They own that space, and many guest comics suspect they are favoured in the edit, while their own hilarious jokes end up being ejected into the ether.

— Jo Brand

The lunar flights give you a correct perception of our existence. You look back at Earth from the moon, and you can put your thumb up to the window and hide the Earth behind your thumb. Everything you’ve ever known is behind your thumb, and that blue-and-white ball is orbiting a rather normal star, tucked away on the outer edge of a galaxy.

— Jim Lovell

Houston, we’ve had a problem.

— Jim Lovell

The fascination to go into space has existed for hundreds of years. But as we do things and they’re successful, people get bored.

— Jim Lovell

If you’re going to go into space, you have to have an objective, a mission. Where do you want to go? Earth orbit? The moon? Mars? What’s the technology to get there? You develop the technology for the mission.

— Jim Lovell

A cigarette is a breathing space. It makes a parenthesis. The time of a cigarette is a parenthesis, and if it is shared, you are both in that parenthesis. It’s like a proscenium arch for a dialogue.

— John Berger

There is no such thing as an empty space or an empty time. There is always something to see, something to hear. In fact, try as we may to make a silence, we cannot.

— John Cage

I also administer the Internet Assigned Names Authority, which is the central coordinator for the Internet address space, domain names and Internet protocol conventions essential to the use and operation of the Internet.

— Jon Postel

If you’re in charge of managing domain name space you should treat everybody who asks for a registration the same. Whatever that is – whether it’s nice or ugly or whatever – just be fair, treat them all the same.

— Jon Postel

On the whole, books are indeed less finite than ourselves. Even the worst among them outlast their authors – mainly because they occupy a smaller amount of physical space than those who penned them. Often they sit on the shelves absorbing dust long after the writer himself has turned into a handful of dust.

— Joseph Brodsky

Prison is essentially a shortage of space made up for by a surplus of time to an inmate, both are palpable.

— Joseph Brodsky

I mean, movies in general tend to sort of portray time, space and identity as these very solid things. Time moves forward. Space is what it is. You are you, and you’re always you.

— Joseph Gordon-Levitt

When I enter that higher-order space that’s required to write, I’m a better human. For whatever my writing is, wherever it’s ranked, it definitely is the one place that I get to be beautiful.

— Junot Diaz

I do think that books are invaluable as a reservoir of what we call the human space. And this is why I think that, even if they’re threatened, the work that they do has an incalculable merit.

— Junot Diaz

A lot of the futuristic space stuff seemed to me to be a very cool form of science-fiction, so that was my first real baptism in the genre.

— J. Michael Straczynski

When you’re writing a story in bits and pieces, month in and month out, there really isn’t time or space for reflection, no room to learn what those scripts had to teach you.

— J. Michael Straczynski

Once you digitize data, you can actually analyze patterns and relationships in geographic space – relationships between certain health patterns and air or water pollution, between plants and climate, soils, landscape.

— Jack Dangermond

We aren’t into the consumer space because that space is largely dominated by search and advertising, and it has a consumer face to it.

— Jack Dangermond

When you’re interviewing someone, even your mother – you have to sort of deal with you have to get some objective space from yourself and the person but you also have to find what’s the best way to get the information from that person.

— James McBride

When we developed written language, we significantly increased our functional memory and our ability to share insights and knowledge across time and space. The same thing happened with the invention of the printing press, the telegraph, and the radio.

— Jamais Cascio

This is what rhyme does. In a couplet, the first rhyme is like a question to which the second rhyme is an answer. The first rhyme leaves something in the air, some unanswered business. In most quatrains, space is created between the rhyme that poses the question and the rhyme that gives the answer – it is like a pleasure deferred.

— James Fenton

I didn’t really watch ‘Beavis & Butt-head’ that much or ‘King of the Hill,’ but I was a huge ‘Office Space’ fan.

— Jason Bateman

If you work in a home office, you can likely write off that space, as long as you use it only for work.

— Jean Chatzky

Who among us has never looked up into the heavens on a starlit night, lost in wonder at the vastness of space and the beauty of the stars?

— Jeb Bush

At East Side Jews, we can take a risk because it isn’t all about the rules. I started it to create a space for all those people who wouldn’t go to temple because they were scared of getting the rules wrong.

— Jill Soloway

The first time I drew a Superman story was ‘For Tomorrow’ with Brian Azzarello in 2004. It didn’t really hit me how important it was until I drew a scene early-on in the book that featured Superman crossing paths with a giant, intergalactic space armada.

— Jim Lee

The video game market is huge, and the ability to tell stories, and tell different kinds of stories in the gaming space is quickly evolving and changing for the better.

— Jim Lee

My acting has always been in the world of comedy, but in my writing, other than writing sketches, I really am drawn to the balance between comedy and drama. I like things that sort of toe that line of one minute you’re in this emotional space and then all of the sudden something happens.

— Jim Rash

I’ve hidden behind the camera my whole life because I much, much, much prefer shooting. Being behind the camera is my safe space, and it’s my creative space, too.

— Jimmy Chin

I’ve always been interested in working with top athletes, athletes who are pushing the edge and are really progressive in the outdoor space and adventure world.

— Jimmy Chin

In Sweden, there’s a lot of talk of gender equality. That discussion isn’t as prevalent in the U.S. I feel that successful American women are tougher than Swedish women – they create their space.

— Joel Kinnaman

Drones ply the liminal space between the physical and the digital – pilots fly them, but aren’t in them. They are versatile and fascinating objects – the things they can do range from the mundane (aerial photography) to the spectacular – killing people, for example.

— John Battelle

I have never understood why so many gardeners favour straight lines and narrow, regulated borders perhaps they think wildness could work only in a larger space.

— John Burnside

You get this really cool groove when you’re playing just piano, bass, and drums where everyone’s sort of feeling each other’s space, which is the only way to put it, but it really is true, and everyone’s sort of sitting in their own pocket. It’s kind of jazz-like.

— John Darnielle

Antarctica has this mythic weight. It resides in the collective unconscious of so many people, and it makes this huge impact, just like outer space. It’s like going to the moon.

— Jon Krakauer

I wanted a CFO with public company experience I needed an HR department, new office space, and a board which could help me grow the business. Insight, the private equity firm I chose, helped me with all that.

— Jon Oringer

Growing up, when I was at live shows, I was always hoping someone would come out on stage and say, ‘The guitarist is sick and couldn’t make it… does anybody know how to play all the songs?’ That was always my little dream. It was a massively inspiring thing to be in a space with live shows.

— James Bay

Me being a shy kid, very closed off, showing vulnerability in a character was sort of a safe space on stage. It’s always been in my toolbox, there for me when I need it.

— Jesse Tyler Ferguson

Comics have a problem, and that is continuity – the obsession with placing the characters in an existing world, where every event is marked in canon. You’re supposed to believe that these weepy star boys of now are the same gung-ho super teens fighting space monsters in the ’60s, and they’ve only aged perhaps five years.

— John Hodgman

You can’t ignore mobile. We are doing a lot of stuff in the game space, mostly nonconsole stuff, and those are primarily mobile/pad games.

— Jon Feltheimer

That’s what I’m interested in: the space in between, the moment of imagining what is possible and yet not knowing what that is.

— Julie Mehretu

Many cities end up putting off things because they want to understand everything. They don’t understand that innovating is about starting. Taking care of a city is a process that you start, and then give the population space to respond.

— Jaime Lerner

Growing up in Chadds Ford, Pa., I shuttled between studio space in my parents’ house and my grandfather’s studio just up the hill. It was a solitary childhood, but I loved it.

— Jamie Wyeth

Because there is that sort of feeling that people don’t know what to do with gaps in their lives. It’s a scary notion, but actually, if you can stand in space just for a little while, a new door will open, or you’ll be able to see in the dark after a while. You’ll adjust.

— Jane Campion

I think it comes from really liking literary forms. Poetry is very beautiful, but the space on the page can be as affecting as where the text is. Like when Miles Davis doesn’t play, it has a poignancy to it.

— Jim Jarmusch

I get to pretend I’m flying into space, and hang out with my friends. That’s what I do for a living.

— Jeri Ryan

Television news was expanding to an hour, and producers did not know how to fill the space and time.

— Joel Siegel

I hate it when people slag us off. We had done three tours during 1970 and we finished off feeling we had just about had enough. We had done so much in that short space of time, we were drained.

— John Bonham

To put it crudely, ‘The Act of Killing’ would blast open the space for the more delicate film, ‘The Look of Silence,’ to do its work.

— Joshua Oppenheimer

Science Fiction is not just about the future of space ships travelling to other planets, it is fiction based on science and I am using science as my basis for my fiction, but it’s the science of prehistory – palaeontology and archaeology – rather than astronomy or physics.

— Jean M. Auel

You feel different every day of your life. You just have to create your own space to survive, personally and professionally.

— Jerry Cantrell

It doesn’t seem as if there’s that much of a difference between a big production and a little production, other than you have a smaller space in which to get dressed and you have a shorter waiting time.

— Jennifer Beals

I’m kind of in a middle space, being marketed as a biracial actor. Roles are written either stereotypically black, or they’re written ‘normal,’ which is just code for white.

— Jesse Williams

As the scene of life would be more the cold emptiness of space than the warm, dense atmosphere of planets, the advantage of containing no organic material at all, so as to be independent of both these conditions, would be increasingly felt.

— John Desmond Bernal

I grew up in a two-bedroom house with my grandfather, my mom and dad and four kids. I slept on the couch or on the floor, and I always wanted to have my own space.

— John Searles

After being boxed in by man and his constructions in Europe and the East, the release into space is exhilarating. The horizon is a huge remote circle, and no hills intervene.

— Jacques Barzun

We think the managed security services opportunity is enormous and so we have been an active participant and probably the largest firm in this space outside of an IBM or EDS, which does large outsourcing contracts.

— John W. Thompson

A golf course is the epitome of all that is purely transitory in the universe a space not to dwell in, but to get over as quickly as possible.

— Jean Giraudoux

There are people who have too much space between their ears, and given the time, do nothing but free fall forever inside their head. It’s a spooky thing to be left alone inside an angry inner-verse.

— James St. James

In the 19th Century people were looking for the Northwest Passage. Ships were lost and brave people were killed, but that doesn’t mean we never went back to that part of the world again, and I consider it the same in space exploration.

— John L. Phillips

I think it’s going to be a very important, unique data set in terms of measuring the behavior of your lower body in space and trying to figure out what we can do to preserve bone and muscle density.

— John L. Phillips

Since the Columbia accident, the Russian space agency, or the Russian space program, has been literally carrying the load bringing us all the supplies we need on the Progress vehicle, smaller amounts on the Soyuz vehicles.

— John L. Phillips

The cynical part of the answer is that I expect to see a good deal more space opera, set far enough in the future as to be disconnected from contemporary issues.

— John M. Ford

I firmly believe in what Stephen Hawking says – that if we don’t get off this planet, we’re going to go berserk. We have to have more space.

— Jolene Blalock

I think my darkest days were probably when I was catering. I would go to these parties and pass out hors d’oeuvres, and it’s like you’re invisible. I remember one catering captain told me that all you are is a tray that comes into their space for a moment and then you leave. It was one of the most depressing things I’ve ever been told.

— Jack Falahee

I plan less and less. It’s a great benefit of writing lots, that you get good at holding long narratives in your head like a virtual space.

— Jonathan Lethem

For a production that suggests a mysterious dreamscape, I have a particular affection for the Vivian Beaumont Theater. It is the largest dramatic space available in New York City in terms of plays, although musicals have been done there very successfully as well.

— Jack O’Brien

We live with incessant music, all the time. It’s like some weird musical purgatory, there is absolutely no rest for the ears, no space to absorb and reflect.

— James Blake

Psychology is still trying to explain the perception of the position of an object in space, along with its shape, size, and so on, and to understand the sensations of color.

— James J. Gibson

I usually write in my underwear, with a space heater running full blast, and three dogs sleeping at me feet.

— Jonathan Evison

Well, by the end of the millennium, five, six months from now, we hope to somehow manage to move into a new location where we have the whole building, so we can devote space to all our activities.

— Joseph Jarman

I grew up like Huck Finn, always outdoors, exploring, collecting frogs – there was space everywhere. I want my kids to experience that too. I love being outside.

— Josh Duhamel

The point is the ‘me’ that you see before you is not the ‘me’ in my private little space, shape-shifting into the writing role, nor is it the ‘me’ that works with the actors. Here, at the end of the film doing interviews, I feel like I’m in disguise.

— Julia Leigh

I am impressed with the innovation in the wireless marketplace. The Blackberry, the iPhone, the Pre, and other smart devices are breakthrough technologies that have helped revolutionize the wireless space.

— Julius Genachowski

I would go to bed every night and have dreams about having a time machine and somehow I’d have the ability to move through time and space freely, and save Anne Frank.

— Jeff Mangum

I keep up with James Kochalka’s online strip, and if I see a link somewhere or someone tells me about something, I’ll look at it, but I don’t usually keep up with any sites other than the ‘American Elf.’ I always have this feeling that there’s not enough space in the screen, like everything’s always getting cut off.

— Jeffrey Brown

Earlier generations of stars in the galaxy could well have had planets. But really, there was only hydrogen and helium to work with, so they’d all be gas giants and not small, rocky planets.

— Jill Tarter

The thing about places like Trinidad and Jamaica is that they can be very musically insular. There isn’t much space for kids making hip-hop, electronic music, or hybrid genres.

— Jillionaire

Dot Hacker, to me, sounds like a collection of all my tastes. I hear four people trying to fill up as much space as they can.

— Josh Klinghoffer

In this movie they took them up in space. They’re floating around and doing zero gravity stuff. Well, they had to do it all on wires. All the wires had to be painted black against this black background. If you didn’t light it properly you could see the wires. Drove them crazy!

— John Badham

Nowadays, people send rockets into space, and I think it does make you question if there’s a God. They can make babies in a dish now! Everything we’re seeing goes against what people always believed in.

— Judy Parfitt

The ballet makes us look at those bodies, it makes us listen to that music, it makes us wonder at the geometry, of the way they come together. The way that extraordinary space is controlled and given such emotional force.

— John Guare

When your voice contradicts reality and truth, the only way to create space for it is to discredit reality and truth.

— John Yarmuth

The Earth reminded us of a Christmas tree ornament hanging in the blackness of space. As we got farther and farther away it diminished in size. Finally it shrank to the size of a marble, the most beautiful marble you can imagine.

— James Irwin

Put three grains of sand inside a vast cathedral, and the cathedral will be more closely packed with sand than space is with stars.

— James Jeans

If I hadn’t been inside of Biosphere 2 and really lived a biological life-support system, I definitely would not be involved in life-support systems for space.

— Jane Poynter

We have never observed infinity in nature. Whenever you have infinities in a theory, that’s where the theory fails as a description of nature. And if space was born in the Big Bang, yet is infinite now, we are forced to believe that it’s instantaneously, infinitely big. It seems absurd.

— Janna Levin

I’d like to convince you that the universe has a soundtrack and that soundtrack is played on space itself, because space can wobble like a drum.

— Janna Levin

I grew up down in Florida, and in the Keys, there’s this place called Sea Camp which was not unlike Space Camp, except you explored the sea. And so that kind of whetted my appetite for that. But then I ended up swimming in a lagoon full of Cassiopeia jellyfish, and that quickly quashed that desire to be a marine biologist.

— Joe Lo Truglio

When I’ve pictured what Heaven would be like, I’ve always imagined myself free to explore the outer reaches of space.

— Jeremy Robinson

My drawing, like that of most cartoonists, is intended first of all to be functional: to create believable space and communicate information. My strongest point in drawing has always been my ability to show characters’ nonverbal communication through facial expression and posture.

— Jessica Abel

When we started with ‘Big Brother’ and created the reality genre, no one could ever foresee that there was so much space in the genre that it could deliver so many formats. There will be periods where there is not enough new stuff to keep the genre alive. But it will never die.

— John de Mol, Jr.

If we descended from space aliens, that’s just as viable as Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, as far as I’m concerned.

— Jon Gries

Most people are completely unaware of their breath. They violate your space, they have no idea that they have halitosis.

— Larry David

I’m private in the sense that I like my personal space and only want people in the parts of my business that I choose to share. Anything I feel is too personal to share publicly, I keep to myself.

— Laila Ali

Empty space is a boiling, bubbling brew of virtual particles that pop in and out of existence in a time scale so short that you can’t even measure them.

— Lawrence M. Krauss

I was 28, and my mom was living with me. I had to decide. You have to claim it you can’t ask permission. After a gig in Singapore, she went home, I went to New York on my own, I packed her stuff in boxes and sent it home. I don’t think she liked me for a while for doing that. It was something I needed to do to carve out my own space.

— Lea Salonga

When I first started YouTubeing, the idea was, ‘Oh, YouTube is going to be a stepping stone to get to other places,’ and I just totally don’t agree with that. I think YouTube is amazing. The digital space is amazing.

— Lilly Singh

I’ve spent a long time learning my way around a stage as an actor, but this I don’t know as well. Humbly, I’m excited to get with a band and perform regularly as an artist and see what I can learn and how I can grow in that space.

— Leslie Odom, Jr.

A father and two sons run Adelphia. It’s a cable company. And they took from that company a billion dollars. A billion. Three people – three people took a billion dollars. What were they gonna do, start their own space program? ‘Let’s send the monkey to Mars, Dad!’

— Lewis Black

You have to say now that space is something. Space can vibrate, space can fluctuate, space can be quantum mechanical, but what the devil is it?

— Leonard Susskind

Space can vibrate, space can fluctuate, space can be quantum mechanical, but what the devil is it? And, you know, everybody has their own idea about what it is, but there’s no coherent final consensus on why there is space.

— Leonard Susskind

In awe, I watched the waxing moon ride across the zenith of the heavens like an ambered chariot towards the ebony void of infinite space wherein the tethered belts of Jupiter and Mars hang, for ever festooned in their orbital majesty. And as I looked at all this I thought… I must put a roof on this toilet.

— Les Dawson

I always wanted to be a cowboy, and Jedi Knights are basically cowboys in space, right?

— Liam Neeson

It’s not completely obvious what gravity is, fundamentally, or what dimensions are, fundamentally. One of these days we’ll understand better what we mean, what is the fundamental thing that’s given us space in the first place and dimensions of space in particular.

— Lisa Randall

People hang their hopes on you fitting into their CD collection in way that they have made a space for, but I’m playing a longer game than that.

— Liz Phair

The ostensible subject of my photographs may be motion, but the subtext is time. A dancer’s movements illustrate the passage of time, giving it a substance, materiality, and space. In my photographs, time is stopped, a split second becomes an eternity, and an ephemeral moment is solid as sculpture.

— Lois Greenfield

I think people are so immersed in the anti-Scientology mindset by consuming tabloid media and stories about space aliens. It’s baffling. When I say I want to see a more positive side of the church, all I’m saying is I want to get past these headlines that talk about aliens and Tom Cruise jumping on a sofa.

— Louis Theroux

Architecture is the will of an epoch translated into space. Living, Changing, New. Not yesterday, not tomorrow, only today can be given form. Only such architecture is creative.

— Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

I just downloaded ‘1984’ for my iPod, but I’ve read that before. It just hearkens back to the ‘romance’ of my high-school days. I really liked the space I was in when I was reading it.

— Lupe Fiasco

Fiction should be an ethically safe space, free of fancy ideas. It should be dedicated modestly to relationships or escapism or the needs of luscious voyeurs.

— Lydia Millet

Thus the sum of things is ever being reviewed, and mortals dependent one upon another. Some nations increase, others diminish, and in a short space the generations of living creatures are changed and like runners pass on the torch of life.

— Lucretius

There is no scientific reason to think that we, even with space travel, are going to survive as a species for ever, certainly not by biting off the hand that feeds us, which is exactly what we are doing.

— Lynn Margulis

Notwithstanding the fact that the most innovative and progressive space we’ve seen – the Internet – has been the place where intellectual property has been least respected. You know, facts don’t get in the way of this ideology.

— Lawrence Lessig

You were told how much space so it was a matter of whether you could send in two paintings or three paintings, you know, pending where the show was being held. You did submit work to be accepted. Once you were accepted that was it. You did your own selection of what went in.

— Lee Krasner

When I pull my white Range Rover into disabled parking bays, the abuse that I get until I actually get out on my crutches is phenomenal, because people presume that you couldn’t possibly be disabled and reverse a white Range Rover into that parking space.

— Lee Pearson

From the way that we build cars or going after space travel, I get excited about the transportation space because it’s the second-highest household expense after housing.

— Logan Green

I grew up watching a lot of the coverage of the early U.S. space program, all the way back starting with Mercury and then through Gemini and Apollo and of course going to the moon as the main part of the Apollo program.

— Linda M. Godwin

We launch when we’re kind of in the same orbit that they are in terms of being matched up in inclination in space, and we’re just in a little different altitude.

— Linda M. Godwin

A lot of these things will fly in later forms on the space station themselves, or a later form of that research will, once they kind of find out some of the basics from flying it on shuttle.

— Linda M. Godwin

It’s really a good feeling to know that we put this up there, that it’s working, that all these people’s plans that worked so hard came together and things fit and we’ve got a real space station.

— Linda M. Godwin

I think that the ideal space must contain elements of magic, serenity, sorcery and mystery.

— Luis Barragan

I’ve been asked a lot why didn’t ‘Ruined’ go to Broadway. It was the most successful play that Manhattan Theatre Club has ever had in that particular space, and yet we couldn’t find a home on Broadway.

— Lynn Nottage

Any rehearsal process – I find, anyway – does have quite an effect on me, and I very much live in that world for the whole period of time that I’m involved with the production. But normally, afterwards with a little bit of space, I can come right back out of it again.

— Laura Donnelly

We’re looking at Earth science, observing our planet. Also space science, looking at the ozone in the atmosphere around our Earth. Also looking at life science. And on a human level, using ourselves as test subjects.

— Laurel Clark

Gravity pulls our bodily fluids down, like water in a glass goes to the bottom part of a glass. In space, the water doesn’t stay in the bottom of the glass. It distributes itself evenly over time throughout the entire volume of the glass.

— Laurel Clark

I can’t think of anything that’s as exciting as I’m sure this mission will be, and actually being in space. But, we did some training as a crew together.

— Laurel Clark

Life science research can be done on multiple platforms. Since we have a very small number of people flying into space, the more people you have, the better.

— Laurel Clark

Some things are only capable of being done in space. Examples of that are looking at our Earth from that far away, and understanding the entire processes of storms and weather patterns, and oceans, and coastlines.

— Laurel Clark

The microgravity or the very, very low amount of gravity that we have up in space forces some changes in different processes. It forces changes in us as human beings.

— Laurel Clark

This has been a great experience for me. The first couple of days you don’t always feel too well. You adjust to the fluid shifting, how to fly through space without hitting things or anybody else. But then you get in a groove.

— Laurel Clark

The wings are moved several times by hand to charge the crank chamber with mixture, which flows on through the external pipe and inlet valve to the compression space and cylinder.

— Lawrence Hargrave

What I have always loved about modelling is the chance to play a part. I am quite shy naturally, but I like getting into somebody else’s head space, understanding how people work and the psychology behind their actions.

— Liberty Ross

The Mesh difference is that with GPS-enabled mobile Web devices and social networks, physical goods are now easily located in space and time.

— Lisa Gansky

My habit of glorifying things far away in space and time, also contributed to my social isolation.

— Luke Ford

Being in a space that’s not a studio, it kind of creates an openness of ‘We can do whatever we want here we’re not on the clock.’

— Lia Ices

I would say keep supporting space flight, keep telling the public and the politicians why it’s important to advance science and explore the galaxy. I encourage the Japanese to keep doing what they’re doing.

— Leroy Chiao

I’m Chinese-American, of course, and so it’s very interesting to see China actually launch their own astronauts, becoming the third nation, following the United States and Russia, to do so.

— Leroy Chiao

Of course, you’ll have to meet the physical and psychological demands. A space walk takes a lot of energy.

— Leroy Chiao

One day, people will be able to buy tickets to visit space.

— Leroy Chiao

Well, it’s still a bit uncertain, but I will do the consulting, and I’ll see how I can contribute. But I’m sure whatever I do will involve the space program. That’s where my passion is.

— Leroy Chiao

In Beverly Hills, it’s very spoiled in terms of the quality of life. I think the climate and the space and the quality of life in Beverly Hills is exceptional.

— Lisa Vanderpump

Space is something that you have to define. Otherwise, it is like anxiety, which is too vague. A fear is something specific. I like claustrophobic spaces, because at least then you know your limits.

— Louise Bourgeois

I think it’s one of my favourite theatres ever, so quirky and wonderful and steeped in history. The space is wonderful and the acoustics are brilliant.

— Louise Jameson

We’ve all heard about space and landing on the moon, but somehow it’s a very tom-boyish adventure. It’s planting the flag on the moon by Neil Armstrong, and it has this very male-hero edge to it.

— Lily Koppel

In our era of celebrity, where every life is made public through email, blogs and Facebook, one of the greatest oddities may be that there is not a livelier discussion about the individual’s basic need for a more private space.

— Lily Koppel

We have lost one shuttle for every 57 flights and that is not a good ratio. I do believe we need to continue space flights, but maybe we can follow the example of the Russians and use unmanned vehicles to transport hardware into space.

— Lincoln Davis

Any person, brought into the presence of this fact, stops for a few moments and remains pensive and silent and then generally leaves, carrying with him forever a sharper, keener sense of our incessant motion through space.

— Leon Foucault

From day one, I have been told I am no different from the male astronauts. As a pilot, I flew in the sky. Now that I am an astronaut, I will fly in space.

— Liu Yang

Tiangong 1, our home in space, was comfortable and pleasant.

— Liu Yang

When you look at the stars and the galaxy, you feel that you are not just from any particular piece of land, but from the solar system.

— Kalpana Chawla

I trust my hand. If I go into a space with a roll of paper, I can make a work, some kind of work, and feel pretty satisfied.

— Kara Walker

The promise of any artwork is that it can hold us – viewer and maker – in a conflicted or contestable space, without real-world injury or loss.

— Kara Walker

We discount the physical, when, in fact, much of life is physical. People’s personalities are partly formed by, or in response to, how they take up space the physical mask has some relation, howsoever obscure, to the mental work happening underneath.

— Karan Mahajan

If India hadn’t become a troubled space for me, somehow I wouldn’t have any reason to write about it. So the fact that it’s a lost love, or something, is why I keep thinking about it obsessively.

— Karan Mahajan

Well, I met Frank Sinatra and Bob Dylan in the space of 15 minutes. Frank Sinatra kissed me on the lips. He kissed me on the lips. And then he gave me a filterless cigarette. And then I met Bob Dylan. I came off all lightheaded and had to go sit on his dressing-room steps.

— Kate Moss

Then finally I said, ‘Okay, well, I want to know all the details. I want creative input. I want to be consulted. I want to know what they’re doing and who’s involved. And I want to see the space.’ So they took me to see it, and then I realized it was major! All these red flags on the Rue de Rivoli with my name on them right by the Louvre!

— Kate Moss

Since I loved underground music, I tried to carve a space for feminism within it. Those were my hopes.

— Kathleen Hanna

I started realizing that music is the one area where I’ve always let go. When that saxophone goes into my mouth, I get into a space where I never think about the notes I’ve already played or anticipate the notes ahead.

— Kenny G

Earlier in my career, I was much more super-sharey. There were moments when I wanted to process things that were happening to me more privately, and I didn’t have the space to do it, because once you let people in, they’re in, and you don’t get to say, ‘Oh, I want this for myself.’

— Kerry Washington

What happened in 2008 stopped people in their tracks. People stopped looking at their homes simply as commodities to exploit and starting thinking about how they might personalise that space and make them less bland and more autobiographical, and that’s healthy, I think.

— Kevin McCloud

Any type of operating system that I wanted to be able to hack, I basically compromised the source code, copied it over to the university because I didn’t have enough space on my 200 megabyte hard drive.

— Kevin Mitnick

I feel like I’m at a really happy, good space.

— Kim Kardashian

If I had unlimited funds, wall space and storage, I would collect a lot more things, like ‘Planet of the Apes,’ ‘Star Wars,’ science fiction stuff, autographs, and prop guns and weapons. I have to draw the line somewhere.

— Kirk Hammett

The problem with being a film actress or a movie star is that people see you so huge that somehow you’re visually massive or somehow you’re in some removed space, which is a television or wherever. It somehow takes your humanity.

— Kristin Scott Thomas

Chicago has a burly, action-oriented but still self-assured and relaxed confidence to its stride. The city has a lot of wide-open space and all the possibilities that suggests. There’s a lot of horizontal grandeur here.

— Kurt Elling

As an individual, I need space and can’t be locked in a house with strangers. I would do ‘Bigg Boss’ if I get to co-host it with Salman Khan.

— Karan Singh Grover

I have this habit to bow my head, as to look shorter, maybe as a result of an unconscious demand of not taking up so much space.

— Karl Ove Knausgaard

When you gradually add in nutrient-dense, fiber-rich foods, you simply stop feeling cravings. You run out of space in your belly for the old junk. Instead of craving, you feel full, fulfilled, and content.

— Kathy Freston

People are using GPS systems to find millions of little hidden objects throughout the world – often as simple as a piece of Tupperware hidden in the woods. You go to a website, you get the latitude and longitude to get the specific location of a certain specific hiding space, and then you go there and see if you can find it.

— Ken Jennings

Of course you don’t make any noise in space, because there’s no air.

— Kevin J. Anderson

After ‘Memory Keeper’s Daughter,’ it took me a few months to shut out the world. I really had to turn off the Internet and sort of cloister myself away from the world again and sink into that psychic space to write again.

— Kim Edwards

I do know what my family has done for me, but they do need to give me some space to let me be myself. There would be some things I would handle differently.

— Kim Wilde

A black hole really is an object with very rich structure, just like Earth has a rich structure of mountains, valleys, oceans, and so forth. Its warped space whirls around the central singularity like air in a tornado.

— Kip Thorne

Each black hole spins on its axis like the Earth spins. That spin creates two vortexes of twisting space, somewhat like vortexes in a bathtub or a whirlpool.

— Kip Thorne

We have to have a combination of general relativity that describes the warping of space and time, and quantum physics, which describes the uncertainties in that warping and how they change.

— Kip Thorne

When gravitational waves reach the earth, the waves stretch and squeeze space. This is a tiny stretch and squeeze. Far too small to detect with ordinary human senses.

— Kip Thorne

My style can’t be held within a pixel medium. Like, it needs to be performed in a living, breathing space. People need to have all their senses ready to take on my comedy, and unfortunately, TV alienates at least their sense of touch, taste, smell.

— Kristen Schaal

For me, California is all about rest, relaxation, space.

— Karen O

I made about fifty-four dollars a week and spent it on two flying lessons every week at the age of sixteen and was able to get a license then pretty early and knew that that’s what I wanted to do, some kind of a career in aviation. I did know about space flight, but at that point, it was still pretty far out there.

— Kevin A. Ford

A lot of scientists on Earth think of things that they could do in zero g. Things like the way metals cure, for example, and the way fluids react in space can tell us a lot about some of the unknowns we have on Earth.

— Kevin A. Ford

I think someday, out in space, perhaps, some people might be able to grow some of their own food or hopefully on another planet.

— Kevin A. Ford

I enjoy going out to the plants, the factories where just some sub-element maybe of the orbiter or the space station is built. Those people take such pride in that component, and they build it to perfection, and it’s just a pleasure to see that.

— Kevin A. Ford

When the guys come back in from the spacewalk, there really is a distinct smell of space it’s something I will never forget.

— Kevin A. Ford

The ability of the humans to not only function in space but be very functional when they arrive at their destination, those are the kinds of things we’re learning from the science. Fuel transfer technologies and all the things we can learn about the space environment are all valuable to us for pressing on out.

— Kevin A. Ford

Life as an astronaut in space is a very interesting one. There are things we all take for granted here on earth, like gravity, that can make things a bit challenging. One of the fun things about getting here is the zero gravity and floating around. But it also makes things very difficult.

— Kevin A. Ford

It’s much easier for me to sleep in space than it is back home. We sleep in a cabin, and you can float inside.

— Kevin A. Ford

Sometimes I gotta look in the mirror and say, ‘Hey, they’re still saying you’re too fat, but you’re here! They gotta take it or leave it.’ And in most cases, if they leave it, it’s all good because they don’t need to be in my space anyway.

— Kelly Price

What I love about L.A. and Washington, D.C. is that they’re almost the opposite of each other. L.A. is a very creative space while D.C. is a very cerebral space. So, they’re the ying and the yang in my world. I like them both for their own reasons.

— Kal Penn

I started writing because it was hard to find acting jobs. I didn’t like any monologues in auditions, so I started to write my own things. Since then, I have written a couple of shows. I was nominated for playwright of the year for a play I wrote called ‘Potential Space.’

— Kirsten Vangsness

From the Berlin tenement reform law of 1897 to H. P. Berlage’s plan for Amsterdam South of 1917, designers and theorists in Germany and Holland moved toward the development of a perimeter residential block that would preserve the plastic continuity of the street while opening up the resultant courtyard for use as an enclosed semi-public space.

— Kenneth Frampton

When I do outdoor scenes, I tend to find a quiet space where I can sit and carve a walking stick that can turn out to be interesting for me.

— Mads Mikkelsen

Some people say they feel very small when they think about space. I felt more expansive, very connected to the universe.

— Mae Jemison

Sooner or later, I hate to break it to you, you’re gonna die, so how do you fill in the space between here and there? It’s yours. Seize your space.

— Margaret Atwood

Science fiction is filled with Martians and space travel to other planets, and things like that.

— Margaret Atwood

I found literary idols in Adrienne Kennedy, Nella Larsen, and Ntozake Shange, writers who’d dared to locate a sanctioned, forbidden space between white vulnerability and black invincibility.

— Margo Jefferson

Once you learn to choose your belongings properly, you will be left with only the amount that fits perfectly in the space you own.

— Marie Kondo

I can’t tell you how much we laughed on the set to have Alec Guinness in a scene with a big, furry dog that’s flying a space ship.

— Mark Hamill

I think we basically saw that the messaging space is bigger than we’d initially realized, and that the use cases that WhatsApp and Messenger have are more different than we had thought originally.

— Mark Zuckerberg

A lot of my works deal with a passage, which is about time. I don’t see anything that I do as a static object in space. It has to exist as a journey in time.

— Maya Lin

I go to a lot of movies where people are all around me laughing, and I feel like I’m from outer space because I find it dangerous and stupid and horrible and degrading to women and all these things.

— Meryl Streep

There are improbable things suspended in space, like the earth.

— Meryl Streep

Sadly, semi-consciousness, along with daydreaming, is a capacity that is actively discouraged among children in schools, and our society is much poorer and harsher as a consequence. The value of liminal space and transitional imagination remain personally and culturally undeveloped.

— Michael Leunig

As I grew steadily more comfortable in the kitchen, I found that, much like gardening, most cooking manages to be agreeably absorbing without being too demanding intellectually. It leaves plenty of mental space for daydreaming and reflection.

— Michael Pollan
