I am a Ford, not a Lincoln.

Most of the people that I went to school with – I went to secondary school – we were educated to go and work in the line at Ford’s, and if we were lucky, technical skilled labor. I sort of rejected that, and thought I wanted to do something else.
Billy Bragg
Like many people, I only knew of Ford Madox Ford through a book called ‘The Good Soldier,’ which is everybody’s favorite Ford Madox Ford if they have one, but I came to read ‘Parade’s End’ when it was suggested via Damien Timmer of Mammoth Screen.

My proudest moments are beating Ferrari for the World Championship in 1965, and working with Ford to win Le Mans in 1966 and 1967.

Kellie Pickler

Douglas Coupland
I love Tom Ford loafers.
P. J. Tucker
There’s a Ford dealer in every city around the United States. They’re the fabric of the community. They’re either head of the chamber of commerce or the priest, or I mean they’re just the fabric of America, and they took care of us.
Alan Mulally
The Ford family wants the company to succeed. Period.
William Clay Ford, Jr.

George Vecsey
I can remember the first time I tried to drive into the garage of the world headquarters of Ford in a Camry. It was almost like they wouldn’t let me in. They said, ‘Why do you want to do that?’ I said, ‘Because we are going to make the best cars in the world, and we need to know everything about the competitor’s car.’
Alan Mulally
I met Gerald Ford. I met Richard Nixon. I met Jimmy Carter. I met Dwight Eisenhower when he was a general. George Bush senior. I haven’t met Bill Clinton or George W. Bush, although I got a letter from him.
Pete Rose
In 1958, my father invested everything he had in a business venture and became the largest automobile dealership in Chicago for Ford’s new Edsel line. But Edsel sales plummeted and my father fell into bankruptcy. I watched him struggle; working long hours to protect us from poverty.
Radhanath Swami
I liked the fact DAKS was an unknown quantity. It’s more like Gucci before Tom Ford got there. There’s a lot you can do.
Giles Deacon
The fact was, Ford kept stumbling around. I didn’t want him in the White House. I wanted Carter in, and I had a forum of 20 million people watching.
Chevy Chase
The John Ford pictures I made are highly regarded, but at the time they didn’t seem like that.
Gloria Stuart
One of our worst traits in journalism is that when we have a narrative in our minds, we often plug in anecdotes that confirm it. Thus we managed to portray President Gerald Ford, a first-rate athlete, as a klutz.
Nicholas Kristof
Doug Ford was one of the first of the old pros I saw during my first full year on tour, in 1963. To this day he’s the best chipper I’ve ever seen. One thing Doug did was get the ball onto the green and rolling right away, keeping it as low as possible. He never hit his chips higher than was absolutely necessary.
Raymond Floyd
The fashion world tells me how much they love my work, but they don’t hire me very often. Tom Ford did, and he hated it. Naturally, he wanted to Photoshop away the imperfections, which is perfectly understandable. They want their vision.
Marilyn Minter
The problem that we’ve had is four media companies run media, globally. And some say they’re on the Right and some say they’re on the Left; look, they’re all afraid of losing Ford as a client. So they’re all, by definition, huge companies that are going to be inherently conservative.
Shane Smith
I acted three times with Fred MacMurray, three times with Martin and Lewis, four times with Rock Hudson. Three times with Glenn Ford.
Dorothy Malone
I have decided never ever to put on weight again. Not even if Francis Ford Coppola were to offer me a role in exchange for putting on 25 kilos!
Ranvir Shorey
It doesn’t interest me to be Harrison Ford. It interests me to be Mike Pomeroy and Indiana Jones and Jack Ryan. I don’t want to be in the Harrison Ford business. I take what I do seriously, but I don’t take myself seriously.
Harrison Ford
The President has not created any Ford constituency, unique from that of any Republican President. The one exception to this is that he does show unique strength with young voters for a Republican.
Robert Teeter
My father, who was illiterate, smoothed iron for Ford Dagenham and we’d get up at 5;30 A.M. to give him a jump-start. My mother was a nurse and part of the Windrush generation. Growing up in east London, we were financially poor, but rich in hope and dignity, and we were happy.
Chris Eubank Sr.
Some things that I write, you’ll see a page with cartoon pictures or a drawing of a car – like a Ford – or a flag. I still do it on an occasion when a word is strange to me.
Andrae Crouch
I think if you play a character that is fearless, then it’s boring. I think that’s what was so incredible about Harrison Ford, is that he always seemed like he was never going to survive it, he’s always scared, and yet he always does survive it somehow.
Oded Fehr
I read Lorrie Moore and Marilynne Robinson and Jhumpa Lahiri and Richard Ford, John Updike, Anton Chekhov, Vladimir Nabokov – all of whom I really fell in love with.
Michelle Zauner
Harrison Ford has always been one of my favorite actors. I grew up with Han Solo and Indiana Jones, and ‘Regarding Henry’ is one of my favorite movies of all time.
Nolan North
I learned from Francis Ford Coppola to treat the company like your family.
Mary Stuart Masterson
When I turned 16, I got my driver’s license like the rest of my classmates, but I also got an extra present: a two-day practice session in a Formula Ford: my first open-wheel racing car and the first step on the ladder toward becoming a professional driver.
Charlie Kimball
The One Ford plan drives the business to get PGA, Profitable Growth for All, meaning that every year we increase the profits and cash flow. So how do we do that? We serve all the markets around the world with a complete family of vehicles and use the One Ford Plan.
Alan Mulally
Ever since Israel has been a nation the United States has provided the leadership. Every president down to the ages has done this in a fairly balanced way, including George Bush senior, Gerald Ford, and others including myself and Bill Clinton.
Jimmy Carter
We all obviously need others to look up to, and be inspirational to us. Ford did a great job as far as putting the presidency back where it belonged, getting the trust back after Nixon. And President Reagan has been one of the most influential presidents.
Steve Garvey
When Tom Ford asked me to consult for Gucci, I had never consulted in my life. I didn’t know what consulting was, and look, we made something amazing.
Carine Roitfeld
In my time, we served with noble and ethical leaders: Gerry Ford, Bob Michael, John Rhodes, men of impeccable honesty. We didn’t have anybody locked up for a violation of ethics.
Pete McCloskey
The only proper suit-and-tie job I’ve had in my life was the two years in the late 1980s when I ran a small corporate publishing company. I even had a Ford Sierra!
Will Self
In the post-Watergate atmosphere of 1975 and 1976, the just-plain-folks personalities of both Ford and Carter seemed the perfect antidote to Nixon’s arrogant, isolated presidency. But as alert history-minded readers know, Ford and Carter were both rebuffed by voters in their efforts to hold on to the presidency.
Jeff Greenfield
Not long ago I made a list of Doc Ford books I would like to do, and I came up with 11 pretty easily. I like to let the characters go their own ways and see what happens. I find them fascinating.
Randy Wayne White
I had pro offers from the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers, who were pretty hard up for linemen in those days. If I had gone into professional football the name Jerry Ford might have been a household word today.
Gerald R. Ford
My roots are in music. But Eileen Ford saw my high school graduation picture, and next thing I knew I was on a plane to New York. That’s what threw a monkey wrench in it. The modeling.
Bebe Buell
I met Harrison Ford at Barney’s Beanery. And I met Steve Martin at the bar at the Troubador. He said he wanted to be a stand-up comic. I thought that was the worst idea because he was so square, so Orange County.
Eve Babitz
In many ways when Jerry Ford pardoned Nixon, in a certain way, he did speak for the country.
Morley Safer
Driving a Model T Ford was extremely difficult. The pedals are reversed from the way they are now. It’s so crude, but that was the motorcar that started it all. It’s an incredible part of history.
David Jason
The kind of roles that Harrison Ford plays are what really interest me, like ‘Indiana Jones’ and ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark.’
Fabio Lanzoni
Other brands I like besides Versace… Tom Ford makes incredible suits. I love the glasses as well. I have a plethora of Tom Ford shades. Who else do I like? Dolce & Gabbana, Dior Homme.
Trey Songz
I would like to wish the England squad every success. I would also very much like to extend those wishes to Martin Johnson, Brian Smith, Mike Ford, John Wells, Graham Rowntree and the rest of the England 2011 World Cup management team who have been fantastic and deserve people to know that.
Jonny Wilkinson
It has to do with the fact that Ford, for all his greatness, is an Irish egomaniac, as anyone who knows him will say.
Henry Fonda
President Ford used humor a great deal.
Robert Orben
There may be little practical difference between a Ford Mondeo and a BMW three series, but in terms of perceptions of who you are and what you are, then they are worlds apart.
Martin Jacques
A Tom Ford three-piece makes you feel so confident, it’s bananas.
Dwyane Wade
Good intentions can often lead to unintended consequences. It is hard to imagine a law intended for the workforce known to Henry Ford can serve the needs of a workplace shaped by the innovations of Bill Gates.
Tim Walberg
The greatest rewards of Jerry Ford’s time were reserved for his fellow Americans and the nation he loved.
Tom Brokaw
Harrison Ford was pretty content as a carpenter who thought it would be nice to work on TV and ended up being the biggest film star in the history of cinema.
Dirk Benedict
Being first lady is a full-time job. Betty Ford worked full time and should have received a salary. Michelle Obama works full time and should be paid.
Karen DeCrow
I received a grant from The Ford Foundation to write a book for kids about urban perception, or how people experience cities, but I kept putting off writing it. Instead I started to write what became The Phantom Tollbooth.
Norton Juster
Sometimes people are looking for, ‘What’s the next Tesla car? What’s this really cool, super-specific thing that people are going to want?’ But I try to be just like a Ford truck. They sell a lot more Ford trucks than they do Tesla cars.
Luke Combs
Should Ford succeed in equipping all its cars with information that gets communicated back to its servers, it will become a ‘big data’ company, a beyond-vehicles opportunity that is as promising as it is murky.
Adam Lashinsky
Why pay $20 million to Harrison Ford? I don’t even understand that. They think they have to do it… If someone puts a price on himself, that suggests he is irreplaceable, then he better find somewhere else to work.
Michael Lewis
Being over at Ford offers a much clearer path in my development.
Hailie Deegan
I worked for John Ford, Howard Hawks, Henry Hathaway, Raoul Walsh – I worked for some real good directors.
Richard Farnsworth
Ford used to come to work in a big car with two Admiral’s flags, on each side of the car. His assistant would be there with his accordion, playing, Hail to the Chief.
Richard Widmark
There aren’t any real dumb people in my voices. It’s always irritated me about Hollywood dialogue – there’s so much dialogue that would just bore a Ford mechanic. This is not how people talk.
Jim Harrison
When How Green Was My Valley finally wrapped, I thought John Ford was a walking god.
Maureen O’Hara
For me, ‘The Crystal Skull’ was something I’d never done before, and I loved every minute of it. Working with Harrison Ford as well – he’s a cowboy from Montana, the most unassuming man you’ll ever work with, fabulous guy, and I loved it.
Ray Winstone
A couple of my teammates have the rare Ford F650 Super Truck, and they’re kitted out with everything – even flat-screen TVs for movies and video-game systems in the back.
Ndamukong Suh
At Ford, one of the behaviors is you listen, and you don’t have side conversations during the meeting. It’s just so important everybody stays focused.
Alan Mulally
In the movies, every crazy old fart needs a cool old car. Jack Nicholson drove a spiffy yellow 1970 Dodge Challenger two-door in ‘The Bucket List.’ In ‘Gran Torino,’ the cranky pensioner played by Clint Eastwood not only owned a 1972 GT Sport, he also used to build cars like that at the Ford plant.
Richard Corliss
While I do not believe Ford was wrong to pardon Nixon, the timing of the pardon was premature and may have cost Ford the margin of victory in the 1976 election.
Richard Ben-Veniste
A guy named Charlie Beacham was my first mentor at Ford. He taught me the importance of the dealers, and he rubbed my nose in the retail business.
Lee Iacocca
Oh my God… I worked with George C. Scott, way before ‘Chips,’ in ‘The New Centurion.’ I co-star in that movie. It was great working with him. I worked with Charlton Heston, Glenn Ford, Robert Mitchum. Stacy Each. The old Hollywood. I met John Wayne, and that was a thrill. I was working next door to him.
Erik Estrada
I believe it was seventh or eighth grade: I went to a Danny Ford football camp. A buddy of mine was a big Clemson fan, and coach Ford put on a camp, and we did actually enjoy ourselves.
Will Muschamp
I did my first film with Francis Ford Copploa, which spoiled the hell out of me.
Alden Ehrenreich
I went to Europe with Spencer Tracy. What a thrill, working with John Ford when I was a kid.
Robert Wagner
I created ‘America’s Next Top Model’ one-hundred percent. I was in my kitchen making tea one morning, and I looked out the window, and the idea popped into my head. I wanted it to be ‘American Idol’ meets ‘Ford Supermodel of the Year’ meets ‘The Real World.’
Tyra Banks
My favourite designers always create a strong silhouette, like McQueen and Tom Ford and Alaia. I like structured things that you can throw on, and it’s almost like armour, and you’re, like, ready for the day.
Liberty Ross
It’s just cool to have lunch with Harrison Ford.
Alden Ehrenreich
I’m all about a big lash. I love a good mascara. I use Tom Ford lipsticks. I think he has the most vibrant colours, especially pink or orange or vampish reds, and that’s about it.
Poppy Delevingne
I definitely wear a lot of Tom Ford jackets on stage.
Matthew Ramsey
Lewis Booth and Derrick Kuzak represent the very best of Ford and our culture and built a legacy of leadership, integrity and commitment to excellence that will benefit us for years to come.
William Clay Ford, Jr.
I think I can speak for a lot of people in that they would be pretty nervous about meeting Harrison Ford, and I was definitely one of those people.
Asa Butterfield
If I could have anything, I would probably get an old Ford F-150 from the ’70s.
Theo Von
I was very young, and I remember this heated, passionate argument and trying to figure out some place called Vietnam, something called a Watergate, and some guy named Gerald Ford who my dad knew who had just become president, and how all these things fit together.
Bill Huizenga
Some people like to drive a Ford, not a Ferrari, and some people like to drink out of a red Solo cup, not out of a crystal stem.
Marsha Blackburn
I grew up in Hollywood. Saying my name here is like mentioning Ford in Detroit.
Tony Goldwyn
Ford Fairlane was one of those movies that was so much fun to make that it was bound not to be a big hit.
Renny Harlin
I drove the Ford Ranger until probably five years after college, till about 2001, when I was almost 30.
Chuck Liddell
My mom wanted me to model, and I was little shy about it at first. I signed with Ford Models at 18.
Kenya Kinski-Jones
The first day of ‘Liberty,’ I was hanging around waiting for Ford to come in. Everybody told me how tough he was and not to say anything, or he’d single you out and get on you the whole shoot. But as he walked in, I got up and saluted him.
Lee Marvin
The supposedly petty sexual harassment that so many women have to endure, from Hollywood studios to the factory floor at Ford, is a national outrage that needs to end. Period.
Bret Stephens
I was very involved in political satire, and I’d been writing parody for ‘Mad’ and ‘National Lampoon,’ so I made up some strange story about Gerald Ford.
Chevy Chase
When I arrived in Ford, a decision was made to sell many marquee brands. This was because 85 per cent of the sales were from Ford and Lincoln brands. We were clear that for the company’s strong future, we needed to focus on the Ford brands.
Alan Mulally
The standard rumor at the time was that Rumsfeld, as chief of staff, had persuaded President Ford to appoint George H.W. Bush as director of Central Intelligence, assuming that that got rid of a potential competitor for the presidency.
Bobby Ray Inman
I had a lot of fun bantering back and forth with Kennedy. But for ease and comfort, it would be Gerald Ford. He was a down-home type. I came from the Midwest and he came from the Midwest. He was nonaggressive and kindly.
Helen Thomas
I went with Tom Ford to a bunch of events one year, and he’s so wonderful and handsome and so much fun to be with; he made me look, like, 100 percent better in every single picture.
Julianne Moore
When you try to battle with John Ford, you have to give in.
Maureen O’Hara
In every phase of the automotive industry, certain factors have been more important than all others in relation to the way the automobile has looked. Phase One is really the Ford story. Function and production were the most important considerations. The automobile was an invention, and it looked like one.
Raymond Loewy
I really dig Tom Ford. It fits big dudes, but it’s the cleanest, most elegant-looking clothing ever.
P. J. Tucker
Great innovators like Thomas Alva Edison, Henry Ford, and Andrew Carnegie didn’t rely on government. There was hardly any of it in those days. More recently, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and Larry Ellison used genius to put brand-new ideas into production.
Lawrence Kudlow
My go-to products are a Tom Ford tinted moisturiser, an Armani foundation and a Smashbox mascara.
Sara Cox
I wear Tom Ford Traceless Foundation.
Daisy Lowe
I had a Ford F-250. It was a big ol’ farm truck, but it wasn’t a rig. That’s about the biggest I’ve ever driven. That’s what I drove back and forth to high school. I was a poor guy, and it was a truck that my uncle owned and let me drive because I had no money.
Nathan Fillion
I put headlights in Ford vans. I still drive a Ford.
James McBride
I love Tom Ford. I love Harrison Ford, too.
Riff Raff
President Ford was a devoted, decent man of impeccable integrity who put service to his country before his own self interest. He helped heal our nation during a time of crisis, provided steady leadership and restored people’s faith in the presidency and in government.
Mark Udall
When Henry Ford founded the company bearing his name in 1903, he saw the car as a means of providing freedom of mobility to people around the world.
William Clay Ford, Jr.
I’ve been fortunate. I’ve worked in a lot of things where I had those kinds of experiences with actors who were perceived as very macho guys, everybody from Lee Marvin to Charlie Bronson to Harrison Ford to Robert Shaw.
Carl Weathers
If you think about jeans or phones or television, we are used to new brands popping up right and left. But in the car industry, we grew up with Mercedes, BMW, General Motors, and Ford, and nobody can remember during his or her upbringing a new car brand coming to life.
Henrik Fisker
I’ve known I wanted to do this ever since I was four years old and watched ‘Star Search’ for the first time. I mean, Harrison Ford in ‘Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark?’ My hero.
Joey Lawrence
Early influences included Lorrie Moore, Amy Hempel, Charles Baxter, Richard Ford, Alice Munro, Denis Johnson – writers who are important to me still and who I discovered through my teachers.
Laura van den Berg
Frank Capra was a prop man, I think. John Ford was a prop man. It was a little bit of a father and son thing, and you kind of worked your way up.
Francis Ford Coppola
Historians will look back and say, ‘Foreign policy in the Ford presidency was very much dominated by Kissinger, with a kind of continuity from the Nixon period.’ Ford is not going to be remembered as a really significant foreign policy maker.
Robert Dallek
It’s called ‘Night Moves,’ and it’s my favorite ‘Doc Ford’ of all times. It’s way too complicated, but it worked.
Randy Wayne White
I worked with Glen Ford.
Van Heflin
Within the narrow confines of Permanent Washington – the journalists, lobbyists, and congressional lifers who are the city’s avatars of centrism and continuity – Ford is considered the beau ideal of American leadership.
Timothy Noah
When Richard M. Nixon resigned and Ford became the 38th president of the United States, the Watergate Special Prosecutor’s Office, of which I was a member, was preparing for the criminal trials of Nixon’s top aides – H.R. Haldeman, John Ehrlichman and John Mitchell.
Richard Ben-Veniste
I used to be a huge fan of Francis Ford Coppola.
Sudha Kongara
The man does not beat your head because you got a Cadillac or because you got a Ford; he beats you because you’re black!
H. Rap Brown
I didn’t understand anything about fracking or horizontal drilling until about 2010, when I first learned about the Eagle Ford.
Porter Stansberry
As soon as I got my driver’s license, I went crazy, and I got the Ford Cosworth, which was this limited edition street racing turbo. It was like this 200-miles-an-hour monster.
Rob Halford
You never know when or where you will find the next new model, but you can bet someone from Ford Models will be looking.
Eileen Ford
Honestly, the All In women’s locker room was such an inspirational group of women. What I love about all the women involved – Chelsea, Britt, Madison, Jordynne Grace, Brandi Rhodes, Tenille Dashwood, Penelope Ford, Mandy Leon – is we all bring something so different to the table for a common vision.
Tessa Blanchard
Dr. Kissinger was a former child. Jerry Ford was a former child. Even F.D.R. was a former child. I retired from the movies in 1949, and I’m still a former child.
Shirley Temple
Once Michigan stood proud. In addition to GM, Ford and Chrysler, it was home base for the United Auto Workers, a powerful escalator transporting hundreds of thousands of blue-collar workers into America’s middle class.
Kevin O’Leary
I really fancy Harrison Ford. I’ve got to say I think he’s really divine. He’s, like, an older man, I guess, although he’s not really that old, obviously. I don’t want to offend him.
Minnie Driver
There needs to be a planned series of speeches, interviews, etc., over the next two or three months by administration officials and other public figures talking about President Ford, what he is trying to do and what he has accomplished.
Robert Teeter
I’m more convinced than when I accepted this job that we can create a viable Ford Motor Co. that makes cars and trucks that people really do prefer. And we can make them using minimum resources and minimum time and be competitive with our competition.
Alan Mulally
It’s hard not to think of Jack Ford when you’re making a Western. Hard not to think of him when you’re making any picture.
Howard Hawks
My roommate at Yale University introduced me to the auteur theory of filmmaking. I soon became a big fan of the works of John Ford, Kenji Mizoguchi, Ernst Lubitsch, and Stan Brakhage. I then decided to make my own films!
Lloyd Kaufman
I never feel more confident and comfortable than when I’m wearing a Tom Ford suit.
Matt Bomer
Movies I liked growing up were like Francis Ford Coppolla movies and Scorsese movies.
Owen Wilson
I have known Harold Ford Jr. since before he was born, in that his father was my driver in the 1966 governor’s race, and has remained a friend of mine all these years.
John Jay Hooker
Democracy is about institutions: it’s about having things like schools and judiciary and the Ford Foundation, or ‘The Nation’ magazine – you need progressive institutions, you know what I mean? Those are important institutions to make sure that the government functions.
Robert Kennedy, Jr.
When we say ‘cinematic’, we tend to think John Ford and vistas and wide-open spaces. Or we think of kinetic camera movement or of a certain number of cinematic styles, like film noir.
Lenny Abrahamson
Ford had a number of different strategies over the years that they thought obviously made sense at the time, just like all the different brands, and also the regional operations.
Alan Mulally
Nixon was a good president on the environment. Gerald Ford was good.
Stewart Udall
Han Solo would never wear the earring Harrison Ford wears.
Margaret Stohl
In Gerald Ford, the man he was in public, he was also that man in private.
Tom Brokaw
The punk rockers said, ‘Learn three chords and form a band.’ And we thought, ‘Why learn any chords?’ We wanted to make music like Ford made cars on the industrial belt. Industrial music for industrial people.
Genesis P-Orridge
I mean there are tons of reasons. Well first of all. I write my own record. I don’t take other people’s materials. And I have a job which is being Willa Ford on top of getting back in the studio and writing and recording.
Willa Ford
We want people to still have choices – Ford cars and trucks, whatever works for their lifestyle.
Alan Mulally
Ford made some of the most progressive pictures.
Karen Morley
Steve Jobs was the greatest manufacturer of consumer products of his age. His marketing vision put him on par with Henry Ford, and his grasp of the aesthetic component to industrial design far surpassed Ford’s.
Timothy Noah
Ford, as I understand it, had done away with the concept of regional management, and now they’ve re-introduced that in Europe, so it’s kind of a two-way street.
Rick Wagoner
If I tried to somehow wrap my head around the fact that Francis Ford Coppola directed my first movie, there’s never a slot into which that ever fits in your mind.
Alden Ehrenreich
My dad’s first-ever real true job was at Ford Motor Company. He was a UAW member.
Rashida Tlaib
The world runs on individuals pursuing their self interests. The great achievements of civilization have not come from government bureaus. Einstein didn’t construct his theory under order from a, from a bureaucrat. Henry Ford didn’t revolutionize the automobile industry that way.
Milton Friedman
‘Paranoia’ was pretty awesome because it was the cast of ‘Air Force One,’ Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford back together, pitted against each other again, so that was pretty neat.
Lucas Till
Tom Ford gave me high heels for the baby. They’re a little kitten heel with a velvet rope that you tie. It’s like a collection piece. I have to put it on the bookshelf, framed.
Julia Restoin Roitfeld
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
Ford’s federal income tax rate was just 2.3 percent in 2009 even though it made $3 billion in profits.
Bernie Sanders
When I was a kid, I loved Elvis, and Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. But I had no connection to Hollywood – and being a movie star was such a far-fetched idea, growing up in Hawaii.
Dwayne Johnson
My favorite expression is a tag line or an advertising and marketing campaign that Ford ran a number of years ago. They ran it for almost 12 years, and it was, ‘Have you driven a Ford lately?’
Alan Mulally
Ford comes first before everything else I do in my life.
William Clay Ford, Jr.
I prefer the old masters, by which I mean John Ford, John Ford, and John Ford.
Orson Welles
I like to stay away from that red carpet world unless I absolutely have to do it. I’d rather put on my Tom Ford suit and take a few pictures at home.
Grigor Dimitrov
I did a film called ‘Patriot Games’ with Harrison Ford, and we actually shot three different versions of my death. And they settled on the third.
Sean Bean
I knew Tim Pastoor. I knew Sherry Ford. I knew many of the individuals who would follow me around. I knew who they were. I knew they had access to my email.
Tyrone Hayes
I liken myself to Henry Ford and the auto industry, I give you 90 percent of what most people need.
Adam Osborne
When I was younger, all my friends were older – John Ford, Howard Hawks, Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, Jimmy Stewart and Cary Grant. I loved talking to those people.
Peter Bogdanovich
Gerald R. Ford was a decent and honorable man. Under his steady hand, the nation began the process of recovering from the terrible trauma of Watergate – the lies, distortions, cover-ups, misuses of federal agencies to exact political revenge, illegal wiretapping, burglaries.
Richard Ben-Veniste
John Ford was so funny that I couldn’t wait to go to work in the morning.
Richard Widmark
I read ‘The Good Soldier’ by Ford Madox Ford again every so often.
Ned Beauman
Now, if most Americans want to go out and buy a car, they don’t say, you know, ‘I think I’ll call the chairman of the board of Ford Motor Company and see what kind of deal we can make here.’
Jeb Hensarling
I am probably the last of a generation able to gain an education in country music by osmosis, by sitting in a ’64 Ford banging the buttons on the radio.

Bill Gates recently picked up the ukulele. And Warren Buffett is a huge ukulele fan. I even got to strum a few chords with Francis Ford Coppola. It blows my mind that these people, who have everything in the world they could want, have picked up the ukulele and found a little bit of joy.
Jake Shimabukuro
My dream was to go to Nashville. I had my sights set on my dream. I used to have an ’89 Toyota Ford truck. On the front of the truck, I had this license plate with cowboy boots and a guitar that I had airbrushed at Wal-Mart. It said ‘Chasin’ A Dream.’ That was kind of my motto.
Josh Turner
From a small child to right now – I mean, when I was five years old, Red Norville, Tal Farlow, Charles Mingus, Les Paul, Mary Ford, people like that were coming over to my house. So I was around professional adult mature musicians who had had big careers.
Steve Miller
At Ford Motor Company, we believe the arts speak a common language that weaves a common thread among all people.
William Clay Ford, Jr.
I really like a lot of Tom Ford. His leather sneakers are my most worn shoes.
P. J. Tucker
I love heels, and as a size 36, I’ve accumulated a wall of amazing high heels from catwalk shows over the years where designers had to make especially small shoes. Tom Ford’s golden versions are my favourite. I do, however, also live in my flat Saint Laurent Chelsea boots or Givenchy sneakers.
Liberty Ross
At bottom, the decision to pardon Nixon was a political judgment properly within the bounds of Ford’s constitutional authority. The specter of a former president in the criminal dock as our country moved into its bicentennial year was profoundly disturbing.
Richard Ben-Veniste
It is very hard for me to think of Logan without thinking of Hugh Jackman and I have no idea who out there could take over from him if they moved ahead. It’s like thinking of anyone other than Harrison Ford playing Han Solo or Indiana Jones.
Chris Claremont
The Ford Motor Co. should stand for something more than cars and trucks. There is a Ford way of doing things that we cannot lose… We need to be continuously polishing that Ford oval.
William Clay Ford, Jr.
We should not forget what it felt like to watch Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testify, and what it meant to so many of us.
Mazie Hirono
My mental analogy for TalkTalk is an ageing Ford Cortina going flat out in the fast lane of the M4 in the pouring rain. We are always hammering along faster than anybody thinks is sensible, with things not quite working, but huge enthusiasm.
Dido Harding
I was driving to school at Reseda High School – I was a junior, and it was early 1956. I had a ’49 Ford. I was listening to the country station, and ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ comes on… It didn’t sound like the stuff I was hearing on the pop stations.
