Thank you, Hollywood, for allowing me to be part of your group.
Before I get out of bed, I am saying thank you. I know how important it is to be thankful.
People are expecting me to still be fourteen years old. It cracks me up, especially when people see me walk by with my husband. They’re like, ‘What? You’re married? You’re not old enough to be married.’ Thank you. I’m glad that you think that.
My hands are delicate and elegant, thank you very much. They’re well-kept my nails are clean.
Do we recognize the platform that Indian cinema has been given? Of course. And typically India of us, we gracefully acknowledge our host’s grace and we thank you for celebrating us and our cinema.
I wouldn’t want to be a talk show host. That’s another awkward compliment people make. ‘You should have your own talk show.’ And I think, no thank you.
Honestly, after about three years on a show, you’re like, ‘Thank you very much for giving me a step up. Now can I go do movies?’
I really have to say ‘thank you’ to our fans, because I think it’s difficult for European viewers to find and watch Asian movies, and I hope you enjoy our films.
I’ve always loved War’s Low Rider and Sly Stone’s Thank You, and I just wanted to put my take on them.
I thought that all of the sacrifices and blessings of the whole history of mankind have devolved upon me. Thank you, God.
And by the way, a piece of news, Israel is the one country in which everyone is pro-American, opposition and coalition alike. And I represent the entire people of Israel who say, ‘Thank you, America.’ And we’re friends of America, and we’re the only reliable allies of America in the Middle East.
Some people write a thank you note for a gift, and it’s three pages long, and some people write a thank you note, and it’s five sentences – that’s me. I like to pare away words because I don’t want to waste anyone’s time.
We get a ton of email everybody does now. It gives us a kind of a pulse that you can feel. We hear people saying, thank you for being fair, for being balanced.
I sing in key, thank you very much.
I’ve met men who’ve stood in long lines on my book tours, and they’ve said things like, ‘I’ve read your books and they’ve changed the direction in my life, and I want to thank you.’ I think they’re standing in line for their wife or their mother or their sweetheart or somebody, but no.
Men have made the world. And they’ve made a brilliant job of it. I love men. You know, men, you built Paris and you invented The Beatles, and, you know, and you’ve taught dogs to say ‘sausages.’ You know, I love your world. Thank you for it.
Feeling good about your life, but not expressing a heartfelt ‘thank you,’ is like wrapping a gift for someone and never giving it to them.
I thank you for your kind invitation to introduce me to the president of the Republic. Since I have not been out of my atelier for two months, I have no appropriate costume for this circumstance. Please excuse me.
I know plenty of people who don’t have children. And I also get a lot of people who say, ‘Thank you for speaking out my family don’t understand why I don’t want kids.’
I try to relish each of the roles I play in life. If I’m cooking dinner for the kids, I throw on my polka-dotted apron. I might don a smart blazer if I am doing a work presentation. If I play a rock show, there may indeed be glitter and fishnets involved. It’s my way of saying, ‘Thank you, I am glad to be here.’
One of the great changes wrought by the increased public awareness of Alzheimer’s – and thank you, Nancy Reagan, you wonderful tough old dame, you – is that people in the early stages of the disease are now speaking out while they still have the capacity to do so.
He was an original, an innovator, and his influence will forever live on in our culture. Whether they know it or not, all DJs have been influenced by him. Thank you, DJ AM.
The conservative movement was told to curl up in a fetal position and just stay there for the next eight years, thank you very much. Well, how things have changed.
The most wonderful thing I hear is people coming up and saying ‘Thank you for my childhood’, which still blows my mind but is very sweet.
Here’s what I tell people now when they come to my shows: ‘First of all, thank you for stimulating the economy, or at least my economic package.’
Whenever I see John Lewis, I invariably say, ‘Thank you.’ And I will never stop. I don’t know how he’s still standing, because what he endured took courage and strength that I don’t know that I have.
I don’t want any vegetables, thank you. I paid for the cow to eat them for me.
As soon as someone tells me: ‘You’re rather sexy,’ I wish I could disappear. If somebody says: ‘You were voted the world’s sexiest man,’ I have no idea what that means. How do I respond? ‘Thank you’ is the best you can do. George Clooney is the world’s sexiest man, anyway.
It is never too late to change the way you eat – once you do, your body will thank you with a longer and healthier life.
When I met Bono at the Cannes Film festival while I was there for the film ‘United 93,’ he said to me, ‘That’s a great film, brother. Thank you for your courage in making it.’ I plotzed.
Democrats fought to get health insurance for more Americans. Democrats fought for a strong consumer agency so big banks can’t cheat people. We fought, we won, and we improved the lives of millions of people – thank you, President Obama!
For all the supporters of Tesla over the years, and it’s been several years now and there have been some very tough times, I’d just like to say thank you very much. I deeply appreciate the support, particularly through the darkest times.
Portia and I constantly say to each other, ‘We are so lucky.’ Sometimes it’s lying in bed at night before I go to sleep, and I just say thank you to whatever, whoever is out there.
Thank you’ is often an admission that you needed something that wasn’t being fulfilled or you couldn’t do on your own, so you needed someone else. There is also guilt. We think, ‘Well, too much time has gone by, and it doesn’t matter,’ but it does. It always matters.
I was offered a free villa in Hollywood, but I said no thank you, I prefer to live in Italy.
One Hundred Years of Solitude’ convinced me to drop out of Harvard graduate school. The novel reminded me of everything my Ph.D. program was trying to make me forget. Thank you, Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
Being a mom makes you far more compassionate. You have more empathy for people, more love. I was always taught to say thank you, and I’m very grateful. And my kids have that quality, too.
I don’t know if you can hear me, but I have heard you. I heard your willingness to change. Your force, your hope… and I want to tell you how grateful I am. Thank you, thank you, thank you, people of France.
Writing blurbs for books means you have to read the book, and it cuts into the business of bookselling. So every time I get a blurb from a bookseller, I try to write a thank you note.
We’re living in what I like to call the ‘Thank You Economy,’ because only the companies that can figure out how to mind their manners in a very old-fashioned way – and do it authentically – are going to have a prayer of competing.
You dear women, I say thanks to you. Thank you for being the kind of people you are and doing the things you do.
The first time someone tried to share the Gospel with me, I naively explained that I was Jewish and born in Israel, thank you… This was a big mistake. In certain parts of Christian America, admitting I was an Israeli-born Jew turned me into walking catnip.
None of us got to where we are alone. Whether the assistance we received was obvious or subtle, acknowledging someone’s help is a big part of understanding the importance of saying thank you.
I think retirement’s for old people. I’m still in the business, thank you. I have a young child of nine years old, and I want to live as long as I can to see him grow up. I’m enjoying my life and I want to stick around for as long as I can.
Secretary of State Colin Powell, thank you so much, as always, for joining us this morning.
Father, we thank you, especially for letting me fly this flight – for the privilege of being able to be in this position, to be in this wondrous place, seeing all these many startling, wonderful things that you have created.
First thing I did when I found out I made it into the top 13 is I tried not to faint and you know, I took it all in and I really looked at the crowd and said a big ‘thank you’.
When I was a teenager, I had a record company after me. They wanted me to be a pop act. They said they wanted me to be the next Sonia. I was 16 at the time. I said, ‘No thank you.’
Thank you, hard taco shells, for surviving the long journey from factory, to supermarket, to my plate and then breaking the moment I put something inside you. Thank you.
Thank you, people who say ‘Wow, you’re really photogenic,’ for not saying what you really mean: ‘Wow, you’re really ugly in person.’
Thank you… fat dude with giant headphones on the subway, for looking like what would’ve happened if Jabba the Hutt mated with Princess Leia.
Thank you… Apple, for adding a camera to the iPod Nano. Now it’s just like the iPhone except it can’t make calls. So basically, it’s just like the iPhone.
Thank you, yard sales, for being the perfect way to say to your neighbors: ‘We think we’re important enough to charge money for our garbage.’
Researches tested a new form of medical marijuana that treats pain but doesn’t get the user high, prompting patients who need medical marijuana to declare, ‘Thank you?’
Thank you… adjustable baseball caps with no logo on the front and mesh netting in the back, for being a great way to say, ‘Hi, I’m over 80 years old.’
Thank you… ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ for demonstrating a universal truth: Idiots like me will always watch idiots like you fight on TV. You will forever be in my TiVo.
Thank you… motion sensor hand towel machine. You never work, so I just end up looking like I’m waving hello to a wall robot.
Thank you… fantasy football draft, for letting me know that even in my fantasies, I am bad at sports.
I could never be a member of a single party. I want the best of all worlds, thank you.
Take care of yourself by eating right, sleeping right, and exercising regularly! These are the only rules I swear by. If you follow this religiously and use the right products, your skin and hair will thank you.
When you’re in New York, people don’t say, ‘We’re happy you came to New York.’ In D.C., people thank you for coming here and bringing art here.
If I should get selected into the Hall of Fame, I’d be able to say ‘thank you’ to all the legends that are in the Hall of Fame. And also say thank you to my teammates, and also to all the fans. It’s going to be like a dream come true.
A woman in Mexico wanted me to heal her. But I can’t heal anybody. I just put my hand on her and said, ‘Thank you for seeing the film.’
My family, the support of my friends, the amount of people that have written and come up to me on the street and said, ‘Thank you for representing us,’ and Adam Lambert, and Lady Gaga, that’s been amazing.
This arrogance thing… I’ve had that my whole life. I flip between, ‘Oh really? Oh, thank you. Wow. That’s amazing’ and, ‘Yeah! Of course I am.’ They’re both varying degrees of a self-defence mechanism. It can be from minute to minute that I change.
I literally will write Shonda Rhimes, the creator of ‘Grey’s,’ an e-mail once a month or so and just say, ‘Hey, I love you and thank you.’ That was my moment. Because of that, I’m doing ‘Magic City.’
That ‘who’s the sexiest’ business is a crock that the media cooked up to sell magazines, so while I say thank you very much, I don’t put much stock in it.
I need to find a church on Sunday. I need to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you,’ ‘yes sir’ and ‘no ma’am.’ Do the little things because that’s part of being an adult.
It may seem strange, but the most grateful I’ve ever felt was when I was held up at gunpoint. After I handed over my wallet and the mugger ran off into the woods, I thought, ‘Thank you for not shooting me.’ I was overwhelmingly glad to be alive and unharmed.
I keep all of my letters, postcards, and thank you notes. I’ll keep them forever!
Thank you for accepting me as I am, with my virtues and defects.
I suppose, counting back, if the Beatles had been influenced by music in the same length of time ago – you’d have to put that into better English for me, thank you – they would have been like a banjo orchestra. They would have been doing show tunes.
Give it up for Ray Charles and his beautiful legacy. And thank you, Ray Charles, for living.
And the biggest improvement I see between ‘Up in the Air’ and ‘Juno’ and ‘Thank You for Smoking’ is that ‘Up in the Air’ deals with the complicated human stuff in a way that my other films have not. It’s a more articulated film, and because of that, I’m most proud of it.
If someone else made ‘Up in the Air’ or ‘Thank You For Smoking’ or ‘Juno,’ I would have wanted to rip their head off. I need that same sort of passion for every project I take on.
I wasn’t born Austrian I wasn’t born German. My roots are from Africa, and I do not have any reason for not wanting to celebrate that. Every time that I can, I like to kind of mention it, you know, just to keep people sort of knowing exactly what’s going on. My French is pretty good, but I’m still African, thank you very much.
I get a lot of calls from families and people who have served time and they say, ‘Thank you, Sheriff. I hate the tents.’ That’s music to my ears.
A day does not go by when I am not in a line at a store or at a McDonald’s, and someone will touch my hand, and they will say, ‘Thank you.’
Office holders are a self-selected group you don’t get elected if you don’t put your name on the ballot. There are many people who would do a great job, but who would never think to run. Find them. Badger them. Get them elected. They might not thank you for it, but a lot of other people will.
I just want to say thanks to everyone who has been a part of ‘iCarly’, and that includes the fans. Thank you for sticking with us and staying loyal for six years of the show.
To my three sons, Peter, Scott, and Alexander who pulled me from the 18th Century and back into the present on a regular basis and therefore made me a better person, thank you. And to my wife, who sits at the table there. Who is right about almost everything.
Inspire your children. I promise, your kids will think you’re cool if you do this. They may not tell you that now, but they’ll thank you later in life.
Lionel Richie, love song, OK, thank you very much, good-bye. And all of a sudden I realized that, in my career, what has made my career has always been the surprises.
That’s nice, to be compared to Joanna Lumley. She played my mother once in ‘Ella Enchanted.’ I was one of the ugly sisters, and she was the stepmother, so that was great. I’ll take that comparison, thank you.
I always find it funny when I watch actors talking about, ‘I chose to do this part.’ A lot of times it’s ‘you’re lucky to get the job.’ We’re like, ‘Thank you so much.’
If you have someone in your life that you are grateful for – someone to whom you want to write another heartfelt, slanted, misspelled thank you note – do it. Tell them they made you feel loved and supported. That they made you feel like you belonged somewhere and that you were not a freak. Tell them all of that. Tell them today.
Thank you for the confidence put in my by the motherland and the people, for giving me this chance to represent China’s millions of women by going into space.

I just don’t like when there’s a rumor that says I’m dating someone who is below my standards. But when I got divorced, my ex-wife said I was spending all my time with Lindsay Lohan and Angelina Jolie. I was like, ‘Thank you for the big ups!’
The man upstairs is pushing the buttons, and if your name happens to be on that button, well, thank you.
Everything I’ve ever taught in terms of self-help boils down to this – I cannot believe people keep paying me to say this – if something feels really good for you, you might want to do it. And if it feels really horrible, you might want to consider not doing it. Thank you, give me my $150.
I have less than no interest in trying to replicate another brilliant actor’s work, thank you very much.
When someone bestows something on you, no matter how true it is, when someone says, ‘Sexiest Man Alive,’ I’m honestly going, ‘Thank you. Right on.’ For me, it’s never canceled out anything, it’s never made me go, ‘Does this make me less talented of an actor?’
I’ve gotten books published. I’ve met famous people that are very nice. I look back and I say, ‘Wow. Thank you, God, for giving me this gift. And thank you for helping me to keep going.’
Whenever I want to laugh, I read a wonderful book, ‘Children’s Letters to God.’ You can open it anywhere. One I read recently said, ‘Dear God, thank you for the baby brother, but what I prayed for was a puppy.’
If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.
The people who are backing the Remain campaign are people who have done very well, thank you, out of the European Union.
Jamie Dimon and J.P. Morgan are contributing millions to the Remain campaign because they do very nicely, thank you, out of the E.U.
The laughs mean more to me than the adoration. If two girls walk up to me and one says ‘you’re cute’, I’ll say thank you, but I appreciate it much more when the other one says ‘you make me laugh so much’.
People come up to me and say, ‘Can I just thank you for writing my life?’ And I reply, ‘I’m glad someone else is as idiotic as I am.’
And a special thank you to the citizens of Massachusetts: You are paying all the taxes, creating all the jobs, raising all the children. This government is yours. Thank you for letting me serve you. I love this job.
What a perfect way to end the home stand, by hitting sixty-two for the city of St. Louis and all the fans. I truly wanted to do it here and I did. Thank you St. Louis.
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.
When I see someone in a military uniform I make it a point to approach them, shake their hand and say five words… ‘thank you for your service.’ ‘Stars Earn Stripes’ is a high energy, fun, action show, but at its heart it is all about those five words.
I feel so grateful when I see a movie and there’s a woman who looks somewhat like me. I’m like, ‘Thank you, Samantha Morton!’ You know, a woman who feels like a human being. That means so much to me.
I don’t want to be the flavor, the passing thing that the girls scream at. I think that it’s more important for me, honestly, that the guy who gets dragged to the show, you know, looks at his wife and says, thank you, that was great and tells his buddies.
Older teens tend to write to me and say, ‘Thank you for not writing down to teenagers.’
Older teens tend to write to me and say, ‘Thank you for not writing down to teenagers.’ And then there are the letters from adults who say, ‘This is such a good book why did you write it for teens?’
My desk, most loyal friend thank you. You’ve been with me on every road I’ve taken. My scar and my protection.
Thank you for allowing me to use colors as rich and deep as you please. I had always wanted to do so, yet was never allowed because of the color capabilities of our lithographers. Now that I have done it, I don’t think I’ll ever go back.
We say to the British government: you have kept those sculptures for almost two centuries. You have cared for them as well as you could, for which we thank you. But now in the name of fairness and morality, please give them back.
Paddington Bear was a refugee with a label – ‘Please look after this bear. Thank you’, and he had a little suitcase.
I know it’s fashionable to blame your childhood for everything nowadays – thank you, Freud. The thing is, though, I really don’t feel scarred by mine. But perhaps if I’d been in therapy for 10 years, and you were able to read the records, you’d disagree.
I felt very grown up when I was wearing makeup, thank you very much.
Life is such a gift, I just say thank you all day.
I prefer to connect with fans from the stage. Like, I don’t have a Twitter page, or anything like that. So for me, that’s what the show is about. For me – is a way to interact with fans being up onstage and showing them, through music – which is all I really know – the best way to say thank you.
Cinema is a director’s medium, so you’re saying, ‘What do you want?’ Being an actor is about adapting – physically and emotionally. If that means you have to look great for it and they can make you look great, then thank you. And if you have to have everything washed away, then I’m willing to do that too.
Thank you, Occupy Wall Street. With your vivid example of anticapitalist squalor, I’ve been able to convince all three of my children to become investment bankers.
If only I had grown up worshipping Julia Child. I was already grown up – thank you very much – when Julia Child’s book was published. When I moved to New York in 1962, you had to own it.
Well, thank you and that’s for them, but for me, I want to look back at a body of work where when you do the research and you explore the psyche of a character, where she’s been, where she is and where she’s going.
When I grew up in America, I didn’t see anyone who looked like me on TV. I feel overwhelmed with the things that people have said to me. When I meet Indian Americans who’ve lived here all their lives, it’s overwhelming people holding me and crying. Someone said to me, ‘Thank you for making us relevant.’ It’s such a big thing.
I don’t live with people, that’s why my relationships last. I’m not romantic. Even when I was a teenager if somebody asked if they could hold my hand I’d say, – no, it’s not heavy, I can hold it myself, thank you’.
Thank you to everyone that has made me the athlete I am! God, family and friends, my competitors and supporters! You have all had a hand!

I’m the best in the world thank you, Jesus, for that.
I want to thank America. You opened your heart so I could enter. Thank you everybody who lives in the United States, who saw me grow into becoming a world champion.
I always thought every day was a gift, but now I am looking for where to send the thank you note.
What if you gave someone a gift, and they neglected to thank you for it – would you be likely to give them another? Life is the same way. In order to attract more of the blessings that life has to offer, you must truly appreciate what you already have.
I suppose if I went to Turkey – I mean, I can’t imagine going that far away, but if I did go to Turkey, yes, I would probably try to know ‘please’ and ‘sorry’ and ‘thank you’, and ‘a beer please’, and all the useful words.

I truly loved Jason Reitman. I was there on his first film, ‘Thank You For Smoking,’ and I’d go work with him to do anything.
Insomniacs tend to fall into two general categories – those who give up and those who don’t. I don’t. I refuse to admit defeat by turning on the light. I will not try to read or watch a movie, thank you. Productivity is a crutch of the weak.
Unless we’re talking about old-school, witchcraft-trial violence, can we please phase out the phrase ‘girl crush?’ While we’re at it, if we can axe ‘like, total girl crush’ unless Total Girl Crush is the name of a fizzy soft drink, in which case I’ll take two, thank you.
Ohio workers and Ohio manufacturers already know that we are, in fact, in a trade war, and the Chinese have done very well, thank you.

My function is, as objectively and accurately as I can, to present reality to people out there, and doing that as quickly as we do is quite difficult enough, thank you.

I’d like to say to all my fans out there, thanks for the support. And to all my doubters, thank you very much because you guys have also pushed me.
