Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best Christopher Quotes from famous authors such as Natalie Babbitt, Dale T. Mortensen, Gene Ween, Kit Harington, Ricardo Montalban. Let’s look at these pieces of wisdom. We definitely have something to learn from them!
Right after graduation, I married Samuel Fisher Babbitt, an academic administrator. I spent the next ten years in Connecticut, Tennessee, and Washington, D.C., raising our children, Christopher, Tom, and Lucy.
My co-winners, Peter Diamond and Christopher Pissarides, and I wish to thank the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and the Nobel Foundation for this very great honor. We each feel privileged and humbled to be named the winners of the 2010 Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel.
I want to sound like Christopher Cross in another ten years, and be totally proud of it.
I was called Kit from day one; really, I only found out my name was Christopher when I was 11.
And yet I think of Christopher Reeve who said he would pay two million dollars to be able to feel pain again. What a courageous man! So I have to think that pain is a blessing.
There is so much talent in British fashion: a real cookie jar of different aesthetics with designers like Mary Katrantzou, Erdem, Christopher Kane, J. W. Anderson, and Simone Rocha.
Now and again, an actor will blow my mind by doing something really unexpected, like Mickey Rourke or Christopher Walken – you have absolutely no idea what they’re going to do, which is really thrilling to watch.
My maternal grandmother had what might be described in a school report as a ‘lively imagination.’ She told us that she was a direct descendant of Sir Christopher Wren.
I don’t know why my lines that were cut from the film didn’t make it onto the DVD. I have offered to go into the editing room with Christopher and work shoulder to shoulder with him to fit all my lines in. I think he thinks I’m kidding. I’m only trying to help.
The first day of shooting I walk up to Christopher Walken, and I said, Should I call you Mr. Walken or Chris? He goes, ‘Call me Flash.’
Christopher Plummer showed this 14-year-old aspiring actor what acting really was. I idolized him as my film father, he was my role model for the years that followed.
I like the acting. It’s how I started, and I sort of feel that if I don’t give it a little shot now, and I go back, then I’m pretty much done with it. I mean, at what age am I going to do it at? Although, when you see Christopher Plummer and Max von Sydow doing it, I guess the answer is 80.
If we do the work that we can do in this country, the work that we will do when John Kerry is President, people like Christopher Reeve will get up out of that wheelchair and walk again.
My favorite of all time will always be Christopher Reeve. He’ll always be Superman in my eyes.
I don’t think I’ve ever had a mentor. The closest thing is my friend Christopher Fowler, another writer. Chris kept me sane for a long time before I made it.
There’s this weird kind of coming-in-from-left-field thing going on, and I love it – I am a huge fan of Christopher Durang.
Writing for me is not a premeditated act. It just happens – characters keep coming out of nowhere and doing things I never expected them to do. The most persistent and most productive of these has been Paul Christopher, whom I didn’t expect to see again after he appeared in ‘The Miernik Dossier.’
With Christopher Guest films, we have a lot of say.
Christopher Walken would make a bed time story pretty interesting I reckon.
My heroes were never scientists. They were Graham Greene and Christopher Isherwood, you know, good writers.
I read Christopher McDougall’s book ‘Born to Run.’ If running were a religion, this would be its bible. I actually scribbled my favorite passages on my arm to read during the race.
It’s something that people relate to – and I hope my kid doesn’t relate to – but there’s a level of believability in playing complex characters. You know, Christopher Walken has done some hilarious comedies, De Niro. There’s great room for complexity and darkness to do well in comedies.
Who’s judging American Idol? Paula Abdul? Paula Abdul judging a singing contest is like Christopher Reeve judging a dance contest!
I like to think of Christopher Daniels as one of those who’s a great professional wrestler, but I like to think of myself as one of those people that’s great at everything.
Christopher pushed the boundaries beyond anything anyone could expect from any human being.
Chris Hemsworth is like Christopher Reeve in that he can do two things: he can wear a big red cape without a shred of self-consciousness. But he’s also funny as hell, and he’s so sweet. So with all the fish-out-of-water stuff, he’s so funny. So he does almost two jobs in a way.
What Christopher Nolan and I have done with ‘Superman’ is try to bring the same naturalistic approach that we adopted for the ‘Batman’ trilogy. We always had a naturalistic approach; we want our stories to be rooted in reality, like they could happen in the same world we live in.
For me, my party views don’t advance my narrative. Until I can find a way to write political satire like my idols Christopher Buckley or P.J. O’Rourke, I’ll simply say what team I play for and leave it at that.
When I was growing up, my favorite movie was ‘Somewhere in Time’ with Christopher Reeve, which is a hugely romantic, sappy movie. I couldn’t understand it when the guy didn’t get the girl or the girl didn’t get the guy in love stories. I was definitely a sap.
I became very close with Charles Bronson and his wife, Kim. We did ‘Sea Wolf’ together along with Christopher Reeve. I’ve been lucky enough to work with some amazing, legendary actors. I worked with Rod Steiger twice, for instance.
Christopher believed that to overcome any adversity, no matter how challenging, you need to go forward each day with strength, determination and compassion.
There’s different kinds of improv. There’s Second City improv where you try to slowly build a nice sketch. There’s stuff you do in college coffee houses where you just go joke, joke, joke. Bring another funny character with a funny hat on his head. Christopher Guest is more the line of trying to get a story out.
Christopher Reeve understood that… everything begins with hope. His vision of walking again, his belief that he would be able to in his lifetime, towered over his broken body.
I’m an enormous admirer of Christopher Lee. He’s somebody, along with Vincent Price, who I celebrate, and I wanted my movies to show that celebration and that honoring of these great film stars that were unafraid to go into horror and Grand Guignol and the macabre.
All the old school Young Adult novels inspired me. I grew up reading R.L. Stine, Christopher Pike, Richie Cusick, and so on. I loved how you never really knew who the ‘bad guys’ were in their works, and I wanted to capture that feeling with ‘Don’t Look Back.’
It’s interesting to see how some of the womenswear designers that we have long worked with at Net-A-Porter are developing menswear collections – Christopher Kane, Jonathan Saunders and Richard Nicoll.
I had some experience when I joined ‘The Sopranos’ in the last season. My character married Christopher, and everyone loved Adriana. I knew what it was like to join a very beloved, secretive show and following a very iconic character.
Christopher Columbus, as everyone knows, is honored by posterity because he was the last to discover America.
The lives of most authors – even, or perhaps especially, the great ones – are necessarily a catalogue of tedious inwardness and cloistered composition. Globe-trotting Hemingways and brawling Christopher Marlowes are the exception, not the rule.
I’m 48, and I have been in love with vampires since I was six. I was born in 1962, so I’ve been through three or four waves of vampires. When I was growing up, we had vampire shows and movies. We were still dealing with Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff and the old Christopher Lee vampires.
Christopher Nolan’s astounding third Batman feature, ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ represents the true maturation of the superhero movie – and provides the key to understanding the bottomless craving moviegoers have for these films, 34 years after the Christopher Reeve Superman gave birth to the genre.
There are even more statues of Robert Burns than of any other figure in world literature. Indeed if we discount figures of religion, then only Christopher Columbus has more statues than he worldwide.
Captain Cook discovered Australia looking for the Terra Incognita. Christopher Columbus thought he was finding India but discovered America. History is full of events that happened because of an imaginary tale.
I would love to work with Christopher Nolan, 100 percent.
I love discovering new young brands and watching these fashion lines take off, like Peter Pilotto, Christopher Kane, and Clover Canyon.
They didn’t have the money to keep Christopher Lee long enough to play his scenes with me.
I actually really like Christopher Walken. I find him a really interesting actor. He’s such a character that I love everything he’s in.
I had the great good fortune of working with Christopher Plummer, Frances Sternhagen, and Arthur Hill early in my career, and it set a standard for the kind of work I want to do.
I have tremendous respect for Christopher Darden, and I recognize him as an individual of integrity, who did his job to the best of his ability, and I want to tell him thank you. Thank you for enduring hatred from his own community, for being ostracized and called an Uncle Tom and a sellout.
There are moments in time when the coincidence of art and reality interact to allow us a glimpse into the context of history. The release of the Christopher Nolan film ‘Interstellar’ a few days after two catastrophes in our space endeavor gives us one of those moments.
I think Christopher Daniels’ first championship reign with ROH is about 20 years too late, and I fully embrace the role that I’ve naturally been given here as spoiler for that reign.
Christopher Columbus discovered America in a blue-and-white sailor shirt, and since then, men have been wearing blue and white shirts.
Christopher Finazzo had a great job that paid him millions of dollars, but this honest living was apparently not enough to satisfy his greed.
When your heart speaks to you about what you need to do to sustain life on this planet, listen to it, make a difference, and be an inspiration for generations to come. Be inspired by people like Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Christopher Reeve, Albert Schweitzer, Helen Keller, and many others.
My perfect day would be to go on a picnic up Mt. Wilson with Christopher Isherwood, Greta Garbo, Aldous Huxley, and Bertrand Russell.
I very much like Christopher Kane. He actually did a work placement with me, and you could spot his talent straight away.
When Christopher and Charles passed away, I was completely depressed, I felt rejected and real down, and so Roscoe invited me because he had this spirit of compassion, and we had gone to school together, were friends and everything.
I love Christopher Bailey and Burberry, Mulberry for bags, and Hudson for jeans. I like a little bit of designer with a bit of vintage and High Street mixed in. I love it when you find those one-off key pieces, which end up becoming investment pieces. I always go for comfort, and like feeling confident and casual.
What a pity, when Christopher Columbus discovered America, that he ever mentioned it.
Christopher Hitchens and I were not friends or even acquaintances. We never met or spoke on the phone, just exchanged occasional brief letters – notes, really – hand-written and snail-mailed at first, e-mailed later.
I’m a comedic actor, not to mix words, but it’s something I think about. A comedic actor. I like to think that Christopher Guest, Phil Hartman, Peter Sellers and Alec Guinness are comedic actors. And Dan Aykroyd, too. Those are my heroes.
Each of us should think of the future. Every puff on a cigarette is another tick closer to a time bomb of terrible consequences. Christopher Hitchens didn’t care about the consequences of smoking cigarettes. Tragically, he died of throat cancer in December 2011.
I grew up watching Marlon Brando, Christopher Walken, Robert de Niro, and Al Pacino and even Robert Duvall and was impressed by their caliber of work.
Even if the Bush Administration had flung open the gates to stem-cell research years ago, we would not be at the point of offering treatment today. Christopher Reeve would still have been taken from us. But we would be closer.
I never consciously choose what I’m going to work on next; I don’t have an agenda beyond that attraction. Fortunately, my wonderful agent, Christopher Schelling, knows how I think and points me toward things I might like, which is how I started writing Y.A.
Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Prestige’ is an enthralling study of doubles, doubling and duplicity. Its twinned themes are obsession and the Secret: the Secret as objet-a, that which inspires, but which can never satisfy, obsession.
Christopher Hitchens, the late essayist and sot, was a man who purposefully cultivated a lot of friends of a certain type – rich, self-important, generally dim-witted and hence easy for a well-spoken Oxbridge debater to impress – and he electrified Washington D.C. society mainly by not being a completely charmless bore.
The mystery of Christopher Wheeldon deepens. Yes, he’s the most talented of the younger ballet choreographers – indeed, where’s the competition? Yes, he’s particularly good at nurturing dancers and identifying their essential qualities.
Christopher Lloyd was actually the first person – or certainly one of the first few – who ever spoke to me on film.
Atheism is a moral position – a rather rigid one, if you’ve ever read the opinions of its highest-profile espousers, Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins.
The Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford is an astonishing building, designed by Christopher Wren. Its painted ceiling has just been restored so that the darkish miasma that was Robert Streeter’s original allegory of truth and light striking the university is now bright with playful cherubs and lustrous clouds.
I also hate those holidays that fall on a Monday where you don’t get mail, those fake holidays like Columbus Day. What did Christopher Columbus do, discover America? If he hadn’t, somebody else would have and we’d still be here. Big deal.
There’s only a handful of people who are just purely, inherently funny, and I’m not one of them. I need content and a situation. I don’t just walk on the screen, and people go, ‘Ha ha ha!’ There are people like that, and they can do almost anything. It’s the Christopher Walken Rule.
No, well, my father’s definitely not Christopher Walken.
The first martial art my son learnt aged around ten was jiu-jitsu so he can already wrestle. I’d have no concerns about Christopher boxing someone from MMA.
Christopher Reeve will always be Superman in my mind.
Not to sound too much like Christopher Guest in ‘Waiting for Guffman,’ but on Thanksgiving you’re putting on a show!
Christopher Daniels does not do Facebook. I have a Facebook page but I very rarely use it, because I don’t go on the computer a lot at home.
Almost every college playwright or sketch or improv comedian was sort of aware of Christopher Durang – even kids in high school. His short plays were so accessible to younger people and I think that was inspirational to me.
‘Interstellar’ is a thematic sequel to Christopher Nolan’s last original film, ‘Inception’. It drops us into a dark future full of otherworldly landscapes and time distortions.
As the grandson of Italian immigrants, maybe I am biased, but I think Christopher Columbus, the man who is rightfully credited with bringing European civilization to the Western Hemisphere, deserves the national holiday enacted by Congress in 1934.
I’ve always loved improvised movies like Christopher Guest and the ‘Spinal Tap’ era of comedy.
Christopher Gore is a great character, portrayed with wisdom and understanding.
When I’m applying for a new passport or something, someone will call me Christopher. Other than that, no one ever calls me Christopher.
Christopher Hitchens was a wit, a charmer, and a troublemaker, and to those who knew him well, he was a gift from – dare I say it – God.
I would love to interview Michael McKean and his wife, who wrote the songs for ‘A Mighty Wind,’ which is my favorite Christopher Guest movie. I’m just a sucker for any funny guy that has a wife who is intelligent and that he collaborates with.
There are so many amazing directors I would love to work with, like Christopher Nolan, who is a total pipe dream.
The late Christopher Hitchens had the professional contrarian’s fixation on attacking sacred cows, and rather soon after his cancer diagnosis, he became one himself.
Some of the Christopher Guest movies, when I’m not really like myself, when I have my hair dyed blonde or had a faux-hawk haircut. Those I like to watch because it takes you away from your real self.
I liked working with Tom Christopher as he was great as Hawk, and Wilfred Hyde White but I wished it were in a different context as the changes really tuned off the audience.
I guess a lot of comic-book adaptations strive for realism. Christopher Nolan is making Batman seem very real and very serious.
I’m heavily involved in the creative with choreographer Christopher Scott. I go to rehearsals with ‘Glee’ and then practice with LXD till about midnight.
I’m a Christopher Nolan fiend. I love ‘Inception,’ ‘Interstellar,’ ‘The Prestige,’ ‘Memento’ and of course the Batman trilogy. I love all his movies.
What people adore about superhero movies is the signal quality of the Christopher Nolan films – their complete lack of irony when it comes to the portrayal of heroism and the need for heroes to confront evil.
I have immense respect for Christopher Nolan for taking a character called ‘Batman’ – taking a comic book – and making people believe in him in a real world context.
