Hearing Quotes

Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best Hearing Quotes from famous authors such as Clinton Sparks, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Greil Marcus, Marion Ross, Tyler Joseph. Let’s look at these pieces of wisdom. We definitely have something to learn from them!

Clinton Sparks
I was raised hearing music everywhere I went.
A Boogie wit da Hoodie
Sometimes you can listen to a song all your life without hearing it.

Hearing loss very often is such a gradual phenomenon that the person is in denial. You really have to be patient with them in getting them to come forward to get help.
Marion Ross
I guess when I first started writing music, I really had no idea if anyone was ever going to hear what I was writing and almost no intention of people hearing it. So, it was kind of this journal. It was pretty unfiltered.

We are proud of the history of our country; we learned it in school and have grown up hearing of freedom, justice and human rights.

Keith Barry
To turn the radio on and hear so much more diversity, it’s so refreshing. That voice that cuts through what you’ve been hearing, it’s inspiring.

Snapchat’s the place where people are hearing and learning about culture.
During my playing days, when I used to see the repeat telecast of my matches, I used to feel bad on hearing criticism of my game by the commentators.

Ben Okri
Of what use are all the codes in the world, if by means of confidential reports, if for trifling reasons, if through anonymous traitors any honest citizen may be exiled or banished without a hearing, without a trial?
Jose Rizal
I remember hearing the name… ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – what the hell is that?’ But I was hit by the bug as well. I used to watch the cartoon every morning before I went to school, played the video game at the arcades, and was a big fan of the comics.
Jamaican reggae is the style of music I always reach for when ranting to friends about how you could listen to one style of music exclusively for the rest of your life – and it would all be great and varied and worth hearing.
Jonny Greenwood
Since I am from Spain, once the morning has gone, I like to take a nap while falling asleep to black and white movies. It feels less lonely. There is a comfort in hearing their voices, like when you’re a child and your mother tells you a story before bedtime.
Jordi Molla
The letters were universally complimentary, and we designers loved hearing that our games were being enjoyed, but if they weren’t sending us a picture of their screens most of those writers would have spent their time playing the game rather than writing letters.
David Crane
A lady emailed me that her child had been diagnosed with autism and that hearing my material on the subject had helped her. To me, it just means that I’m making the right decision in talking about this.
Ron Funches
My dad and grandpa were in the army and as a country singer you’re constantly playing at military bases all across the country and meeting soldiers and their families and hearing their stories.

Abraham Lincoln
I enjoy hearing from different people who have turned their personal struggles into something that can inspire others and encourage people to push past hard times.
Merle Dandridge
Everything’s always about page-turning, right? What’s next? So, if you create questions for audiences, then they’ll want to know the answer. Or they begin to formulate possible outcomes. That’s the game we play when we’re hearing a story unfold. That’s part of what sucks us into a movie.
Ron Howard
‘Ex-Boyfriend’ is a really funny story that is that much funnier when you have visuals attached to it as opposed to just hearing it. I couldn’t let a song like that go un-videoed.
Lil Dicky
The hearing test, which involved sitting in a quiet room listening to noises of various pitch played through headphones, confirmed the worst. I had no hearing in my left ear whatsoever.
David Hewson
I didn’t think that the government would go as far as to include American citizens to be interned without a hearing.
Fred Korematsu
With any hallucinations, if you can do functional brain imagery while they’re going on, you will find that the parts of the brain usually involved in seeing or hearing – in perception – have become super active by themselves. And this is an autonomous activity; this does not happen with imagination.
Oliver Sacks
Listening is not just hearing what someone tells you word for word. You have to listen with a heart. I don’t want that to sound touchy-feely; it is not. It is very hard work.
Anna Deavere Smith
This hearing came about very quickly. I do have a few preliminary comments, but I suspect you’re more interested in asking questions, and I’ll be happy to respond to those questions to the best of my ability.
David Kay
You do not walk into any hearing or committee meeting and reveal confidential communications with the president of the United States, who’s entitled to receive confidential communications in your best judgment about a host of issues.
Jeff Sessions
When you are up close to an opera singer, hearing this incredible volume of noise coming from a human being – it’s beyond belief.
Eve Best
I hate this idea that I’ve somehow become detached. It’s like I can’t win. I’d been hearing all these years that I was too hands-on: that I was the guy writing out the lineup card. Now, I’m not present enough. How is it possible to be a detached micromanager?
Billy Beane
I love hearing about bad behavior. It’s just so funny to me. Especially, grown ups acting like weird, inconsolable babies over really stupid things, to me, is really funny.
Adam Scott
I have to constantly remind myself that I am communicating with a person with hearing loss.
Marion Ross
Whenever people hear that Kurt Cobain was a fan of my standup, it’s like hearing Jimi Hendrix loved Buddy Hackett or something.
Bobcat Goldthwait
Everywhere you go, there’s a soundtrack. You can’t really quite hear it. It’s just a little out of the range of hearing.
Linda Ronstadt
If hearing that the CEO of Apple is gay can help someone struggling to come to terms with who he or she is, or bring comfort to anyone who feels alone, or inspire people to insist on their equality, then it’s worth the trade-off with my own privacy.
Tim Cook
For years I’ve been hearing 20-somethings say they don’t expect Social Security to be around when they hit 65. Eventually, I came to realize that they really mean that they just don’t expect to be 65. Or 40. Neither did I, when I was 22.
Gail Collins
I love hearing the gym shoes squeak.
Jalen Rose
Be able to recognize when you’re reading or hearing material biased to your own side.
Marilyn vos Savant
I love hearing people laugh.
James Gandolfini
One of the first albums I can remember hearing was a Supertramp best of, with mostly ‘Breakfast in America’ songs on it. It’s kind of the same thing as the Flaming Lips, where there are these really melancholy lyrics and melodies, yet it’s extremely uplifting. They’re like a nonfuturistic version of the Flaming Lips.
Kevin Parker
Our small ears never had such a workout as on the Fourth of July, hearing not only our own bursting crackers but also those of our friends, and often the boom of homemade cannon shot off by daring boys of 16 years, ready to lose a hand if it blew up.
Paul Engle
I’m always thinking about songs and how I can sing a song that would resonate with my voice, my persona. I want it to be a pleasant experience that’s not just about hearing my voice. I remember some singers whose voices were so pretty, it didn’t matter what they sang – you loved it.
Johnny Mathis
Seek the lofty by reading, hearing and seeing great work at some moment every day.
Thornton Wilder
Both the Beatles and The Rolling Stones broke on the music scene the summer I was in England. I can vividly remember hearing ‘She Loves You’ in August 1963.
Gordon Lightfoot
From faith, hope, and love, the virtues of religion referring to God, there arises a double act which bears on the spiritual communion exercised between God and us; the hearing of the word and prayer.
William Ames
Ice Cube went straight outta Compton to hearing, ‘Are we there yet?’ Eddie Murphy blew up striding across the stage in a red leather ensemble that would have made Elvis Presley chuckle, yet is probably best known to anyone born in the 21st century as the overly chatty donkey from ‘Shrek.’
Elvis Mitchell
We have a tendency to assume or believe saying I love you means we are ready for love, or that hearing it from someone else means they are ready. We just assume that we are on the same page about what it means. We don’t know what someone else is thinking, projecting, assuming, expecting when they say that.
Jay Shetty
The first choral music I remember hearing was Handel’s ‘Messiah’ when the Mormon Tabernacle Choir broadcast it over the radio.
Dave Brubeck
I’ve always been involved with charities and things like that, but when I started communicating with the fans and hearing their stories about the lives they lead, it really made an impact on me.
Kat Graham
What’s great is that I keep hearing from people who are discovering ‘Friday Night Lights’ because of streaming and Netflix and Hulu and all of these things. Somehow… things don’t get old as fast as they used to. They stay vibrant.
Jason Katims
The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn’t said.
Peter Drucker
One day, my father brings a cassette. He’s showing me this, and he’s like, ‘Look at this guy, his name is Anthony Santos, like you.’ I popped it on and started hearing the songs, the music, and I was like, ‘Wow, this sounds great.’
Romeo Santos
People asking my teammates, ‘Is Arrieta a guy who’d try to cheat the system?’ Honestly, hearing that kind of stuff come from some of the best players in baseball is honestly a compliment. I view it that way.
Jake Arrieta
I think YouTube has been super instrumental in our success as well, because I think there’s something really important about seeing and hearing what we’re doing.
Kirstin Maldonado
Young people have decided they like to listen to music in a certain way, through ear buds, and that’s fine with me as long as it doesn’t bother them that they’re not hearing 90 percent of the music that way.
In the deaf community, there is exactly that – a community. It’s like nothing I see in the hearing world. It’s old fashioned, I guess, and beautiful.
Rachel Shenton
I like being in warm weather. I find that relaxes me. I like being near water. I like sitting on a beach and sort of hearing the water, watching waves break, looking at the shimmering. I find that really relaxing.
Stephen A. Schwarzman
I am permanently a student of people who make great songs, but besides sort of learning by absorption, I just love listening to music, hearing what’s going on, hearing new things or new old things.
John Darnielle
For me, theory has always opened things up to where I can walk into a room and just by hearing something I know exactly where to go on the guitar. I have a better time playing because I have a variety of colors to bring to the table.
John Frusciante
We were interested in this notion of compression- a lot of the songs were really short so that you’d absorb them in memory rather than when you’re actually hearing them.
Arto Lindsay
I like having an idea, or hearing an idea, and getting it into a proper script.
Lauren Shuler Donner
The site of hearing was now known to be in the cochlea.

It must be a hellish thing to know what’s possible in music, to be hearing things all the time and not have an appropriate outlet for them.
Kurt Elling
I wanted to make something that I wanted to hear that I wasn’t hearing.
Kathleen Hanna
I have that huge print from Pollock by the piano because the influence is reciprocal. He was into hearing music while he created, and I sometimes do the opposite. I’m influenced by everything from an ant to a dream.
Jason Moran
To me, the object of practicing is to allow you to play what you hear. But you’re always hearing new things, so you never get to the end of it.
David Sanborn
The American people are tired of being told. They’re tired of being told that this is as good as it gets. They’re tired of hearing politicians in both parties tell us that we’ll get to that tomorrow while we pile a mountain range of debt on our children and our grandchildren.
Mike Pence
I’ve been able to work with some incredible voice talent, most of whom I grew up hearing in my favorite cartoons.
Drake Bell
I’ve been hearing from people saying they see me more than they do their city council member.
Gene Green
I try and create choreography that’s in conversation with the music that the audience is hearing.
Justin Peck
I liked tap, because I liked hearing the results of my movements.

My uncle is from Argentina, so I grew up hearing Spanish. My Spanish isn’t very good, but my pronunciation isn’t terrible.

John Wooden
I can remember standing in the middle of the field after the race and seeing the American flag raised and hearing ‘The Star Spangled Banner’ and all the people singing it. Then I walked off the field and just kind of enjoyed the feeling.
Elizabeth Robinson Schwartz
It’s tough hearing your voice on the radio, on a chorus, and knowing that people think it’s another artist.
Bebe Rexha
I was born deaf, and I gained my hearing back when I was six months old – it was a miraculous event.
Lindsay Pearce
My father was a very funny man, and one of my strongest recollections is hearing him laugh. He didn’t like people who had no sense of humour.
Mike Myers
You hear a lot about God these days: God, the beneficent; God, the all-great; God, the Almighty; God, the most powerful; God, the giver of life; God, the creator of death. I mean, we’re hearing about God all the time, so we better learn how to deal with it. But if we know anything about God, God is arbitrary.
Bob Dylan
I appreciate an audience that reacts to the music, even if they jump on stage and try to beat us up, I think that’s a fantastic reaction. I think that they’re really hearing something then.
Alice Cooper
I’ve been hearing fiddle music since I was in the womb, I’m sure.
Natalie MacMaster
I ended my journey with ‘Balika’… on a good note, but I’ve been hearing that I threw tantrums on the set and had an attitude problem.
Pratyusha Banerjee
I hate hearing in a UFC corner, ‘You won the first four rounds; just stay away from him this round.’
Chuck Liddell
I’m tired of hearing sin called sickness and alcoholism a disease. It is the only disease I know of that we’re spending hundreds of millions of dollars a year to spread.
Vance Havner
Hearing is a subjective experience, but I never really understood that it’s the same with seeing as well. I always thought that everything we see is the same for everyone. But having these more psychedelic experiences of being really, really sad made me realize how brittle reality can be.
For me, however, that beloved, glowing little word happiness has become associated with everything I have felt since childhood upon hearing the sound of the word itself.
Hermann Hesse
I think people could get obsessed with the idea of perfection. So with that, you kind of stray away from your raw imperfections. Like, I don’t think people realize that people are OK with you missing a note here or hearing the rasp in your voice.
I hate hearing me talk when I’m not in character, and I can barely deal with hearing me as a character.
Christopher McCulloch
For the next week, try the best you can to pay attention to sounds. You will start hearing all these sounds coming in. Once you let them in, you’ve already done the first and most critical thing, you’ve honored that information by including it. And by doing that, you’ve actually changed the world.
Robert Irwin
I grew up hearing about the walking undead. I had a fascination with it as a child.
Katherine Helmond
The more of what our music does violates the premise of its format that it’s presented in, the better. So, hearing our music in the supermarket, a Muzak version, is great.
Walter Becker
My love for dance music started when I was a child. Some of my earliest memories are hearing Trance music in the charts and later being heavily influenced by the eclectic tastes of my big brother, he quickly turned me into an avid Drum ‘n’ Bass head even though I was too young to rave.
Becky Hill
My sister and I had jointly heard the narration of ‘Revolver Rani’ in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s office. After hearing the narration, my sister was very scared and adamant that I should not do this film, as my character was twisted, neurotic, violent and abusive.
Kangana Ran
I don’t enjoy hearing the sound of my voice. The most important things for me are impossible to articulate extemporaneously.
Annie Baker
Before my teen years, I was losing my hearing pretty quickly, and I was getting very, very angry. I was beginning to become an angry person because of that.
Evelyn Glennie
I feel warm toward my Irish side, but I don’t know the country or the people. Hearing a traditional Irish fiddle, I feel very connected to Ireland, but that’s a nostalgia many people feel who aren’t Irish at all.
Daniel Hope
If you’re reading a novel that was written in 1964, you’ll find out more about 1964 than if you’re reading a nonfiction book written in 1964 because you’re hearing how language was actually used and hearing what people’s actual concerns were at the beginning of the 1960s.
Nick Hornby
Those minutes that I’m on stage are the best! Being there and looking at the crowd and seeing their faces, hearing them sing the positive words from the songs.
Miley Cyrus
I began telling stories as a volunteer in my daughters’ school. But I grew up hearing stories from Cuban and Southern storytellers, and I learned a great deal by just being quiet and listening.
Carmen Agra Deedy
I thought I wanted to go to drama school or university, and that would have been a completely different life. But what got me was the sound, and hearing it. Hearing everything so loud, I loved that back in the studio. I loved that from the very beginning.
Marianne Faithfull
For myself, for a long time… maybe I felt inauthentic or something, I felt like my voice wasn’t worth hearing, and I think everyone’s voice is worth hearing. So if you’ve got something to say, say it from the rooftops.
Tom Hiddleston
‘Kiss Land’ wasn’t about what people wanted to hear on the radio. It was the state of mind I was in – introverted, like David Cronenberg’s ‘Naked Lunch.’ You didn’t know if you were hearing a chorus or a verse. It was just my thoughts.
The Weeknd
I’ve had a lot of people tell me, ‘Yeah, sure, you’re good at slalom, but wait till you get to the real events like downhill or super-G.’ I don’t like hearing that.
Mikaela Shiffrin
I remember hearing stories from my mother and father about their parents and grandparents when they were taken off the reservation, taken to the boarding schools, and pretty much taught to be ashamed of who they were as Native Americans. You can feel that impact today.
Chaske Spencer
I’ve always been haunted by the devastating voice and beautiful songs of Tim Hardin. I can’t imagine anyone hearing him and not feeling the same.
Mark Lanegan
I grew up hearing my parents’ stories about how they had to fight for their right to vote in the Jim Crow South.
Stacey Abrams
It’s odd for me to compare my stuff to Lee Child’s, because I’m such of fan of his, and also because it’s curiously something I never did until I kept hearing about our protagonists’ similarities.
Nick Petrie
I’m particularly proud of my work with the Starkey Hearing Foundation for whom I raised a million dollars in one day on ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’ They do great work around the world helping deaf children in developing countries get proper attention and free hearing aids.
Marlee Matlin
Hearing a lot of early rock n’ roll records from a very young age was a huge influence.
Angus Young
The closer I get to retirement, the more I feel it will be a huge change, a shock, because athletics has been the core of my whole life. I know I’ll miss the feeling of running fast, the adrenaline rush, and hearing the crowd cheering me on.
Jessica Ennis-Hill
Steakhouses sort of have this old-school nature to them; they’re like museums full of good food. It’s fun hearing the waiter share his expertise on the different cuts of beef and how they’re going to cut up your baked potato.
Jim Gaffigan
Americans aren’t good at accents, but the English are because their accents change. You go five or six blocks and the accent is different, so they are used to hearing different pitches. In America, you gotta travel maybe 10 states before you can really hear a difference.
Nick Nolte
We’re all used to hearing the word ‘authentic’ a little too often these days, but in Senator Gillibrand’s case, it’s entirely accurate.
Anna Wintour
One of the many misconceptions about the blind is that they have greater hearing, sense of smell and sense of touch than sighted people. This is not strictly true. Their blindness simply forces them to recognize gifts they always had but had heretofore largely ignored.
Rosemary Mahoney
When sermons start where people live – their questions, struggles, and concerns – and then offer a timely and helpful word from the Scriptures, people are more interested in hearing what else the Scriptures have to say.
Adam Hamilton
Close to birth… I lost, like, 80 percent of my hearing, and I had difficulty speaking.
Lou Ferrigno
That’s the one thing I don’t like hearing, when someone says, ‘We’ll see what happens, see what happens here, see what happens there.’ Forget all of that.
Raheem Sterling
I was born deaf. I was raised in a hearing world and in a deaf world at the same time. I can’t say that I like one better than I like the other. I like them both. I speak pretty well; I gesture. If I don’t understand something, you know, pen and paper, texting. I use it all.
Sean Berdy
I love tuning into Radio 1 on a Friday night after training and hearing the new stuff.
Adam Peaty
Whenever any great song or album gets lost in the ether, someone is deprived of the joy of hearing it, and the great effort of those who created and recorded the work is damaged.
Henry Rollins
Anurag Kashyap is someone whose projects I can take without even hearing the story.
Pankaj Tripathi
I am not a fool. I keep on hearing and seeing the way people misbehave with their coaches and seniors.
Wasim Akram
I have to remember that no matter how often I perform, there are certain songs that the audience truly wants to hear, and even though I’ve sung it 100,000 times, it may be their first time hearing them.
Johnny Mathis
I answer a fan with a hearing heart first.
Kent McCord
I look forward to their convention and look forward to hearing the President talk about what he will do for the next four years. He hasn’t done it up to this point.
Harold Ford, Jr.
I’m aware that as much as people like hearing and listening to my music, it’s also very therapeutic for me to be able to express myself some way – how I’m feeling, how I’m thinking, and just saying what’s in my heart and on my mind. I need to do that to maintain my sanity.
Little Simz
Ninety-nine percent of singing is listening and hearing, and so then 1 percent of it is singing.
Linda Ronstadt
I was the first spokesperson for the Better Hearing Institute in Washington. And that’s the message we tried to send out – there is hearing help out there, and the technology and options are amazing.
Norm Crosby
My hearing is out of the ordinary as others might see it, but not for me. I’m used to my hearing in the same way that I’m used to the size of my hands.
Evelyn Glennie
If I just want to ‘start a conversation,’ I don’t need to run for office. As a matter of fact, it could be argued that many people are more open to hearing you if you’re not running for office.
Marianne Williamson
It’s really important to me that my sound is a combination of beats and melody. I love hearing strong, confident beats in music because I love to dance. At the same time, melody is really important to me because I love singing.
I do love the Nat King Cole stuff, the classic Christmas records. There’s something about putting those records on and hearing his voice at Christmastime that brings back a lot of great memories of growing up.
Michael McDonald
In the deaf community, in order to play a role of someone with a hearing loss… you have to have hearing loss.
Katie Leclerc
When I was in the ring at the Olympics, it was my father’s words that I was hearing, not the coaches’. ‘I never listened to what the coaches said. I would call my father and he would give me advice from prison.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
When a crime is committed, only the victim and the victim’s close circle experience the event as pain, terror, death. To people hearing or reading about it, crime is a metaphor, a symbol of the ancient battles fought every day: evil versus good, chaos versus order.
S. J. Rozan
When I set out to write, I see it very visually. I almost feel like a reporter. I’m relating what I’m seeing and hearing, so it’s kind of watching a play for me.
Sandra Brown
The world I live in is benefiting from things like satellite radio. Jazz and blues fests are everywhere now, and Americana is going strong on college radio. What I’m hearing is an appreciation of real music.
Bonnie Raitt
I don’t know that hearing people have ever felt that experience of truly being left out. They have easy communication, while deaf people can’t join in. It takes more time to communicate with us.
Millicent Simmonds
I was asked three times directly in the hearing before the board of the judiciary whether or not I would continue to acknowledge God if I were to resume my position as chief justice. And I said I would.
Roy Moore
I want to be on set and die hearing those words: Where’s Peter?
Peter Fonda
Even if people say you look cool and you did well, it’s extremely cringey to watch yourself rocking out. It’s like listening to your own voice on an answering machine times a hundred, because you’re hearing your voice through a microphone outside of a PA at a hundred decibels.
Kevin Parker
All alone in a committee room of the Senate Office Building in Washington, I was reading the dry typewritten pages in an unpublished report of an almost forgotten congressional committee hearing.
Robert W. Welch, Jr.
If it’s genuinely new, when people are hearing it, they’re not really gonna be comfortable because they haven’t heard it a thousand times before.
Mike D
We respect the role of the Senate. We respect the authority of the Senate to look at the qualifications of Judge Roberts, and at the end of the day I’m optimistic that if given a fair hearing and a fair opportunity, that he will be confirmed.
Alberto Gonzales
What is interesting in Washington, D.C., is I’ve never missed a vote. The veterans’ committee keeps track of hearings, and I’ve never missed a hearing or a vote on the VA committee.
Mike Coffman
I don’t get tired of hearing that somebody liked my work.
Mary-Louise Parker
The relation between a poet and audience is really insignificant. What matters is the poet is hearing something that he is broadcasting. And whether there is anybody with a receiver isn’t the reason he does it. He hopes there is somebody receiving it.
Peter Davison
The earliest music I remember hearing is Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together.’ That was when my momma and my daddy were together, before they went their separate ways.
I want everyone to feel like I’m looking them in the eye, I’m hearing what they’re saying, I value their opinion because I do.
Victoria Monet
I’m tired of hearing it said that democracy doesn’t work. Of course it doesn’t work. We are supposed to work it.
Alexander Woollcott
When people get their mind made up about something, then it’s: ‘Don’t bother me with facts.’ They’ve got their minds made up and dismiss you out of hand. Some people don’t even give you a fair hearing.
Frank Peretti
In my first week as a U.S. senator, I had the privilege of participating in the Supreme Court confirmation hearing for Judge Sonia Sotomayor.
Al Franken
I was always good at hearing complete arrangements in my head.
Jimmy Page
People like to make fun of the fans who camp out but people have renaissance fairs; people do Civil War re-enactments; people do what they like. I’m tired of hearing people rage on the fans. If you don’t like ‘Twilight,’ don’t buy a ticket.
Anna Kendrick
There is something about hearing your president affirm your humanity that you don’t know what effect it has until you hear it.
Andrew Sullivan
I kept hearing all these rules: ‘You can’t say that in country music.’ ‘You can’t use that kind of beat.’ I became so frustrated. It may have slingshotted me, in a rebellious way, toward doing something different.
Sam Hunt
Hearing that people read my books when they were sick, or that the books helped them find an escape when they were having a hard time… stuff like that makes all the hard work pay off.
Sarah J. Maas
I don’t enjoy hearing myself talk.
Romeo Santos
I’m sure you’re used to hearing that when people get to Long Island for the first time, it’s a bit of a shock to the system. But I found Long Island people very endearing.
Katie Nolan
When I have to take phone calls, I start to sweat and panic. Being on the phone is so weird – hearing a voice without seeing the face so you can’t really know the intention behind the voice.
Christine and the Queens
I have a chip on my shoulder I pet every morning, a constant feeling like I have something to prove. Hearing that the canon can’t be diversified, there’s no room for more brown faces – that fueled my fire.
Jason Reynolds
I have serious hearing loss. I’m challenged if I don’t have my hearing aids in.
Al Jarreau
With seven boys and one sister, there was always a lot of music in the house. A few of my brothers were playing instruments, so it was from hearing that, coupled with discovering early rock, which triggered me to pick up a guitar and try to pick out the notes.
Angus Young
I so respect Sundance. I’d been hearing about it for years.
Craig Robinson
Hearing that the same men who brought us ‘South Park’ were mounting a musical to be called ‘The Book of Mormon,’ we were tempted to turn away, as from an inevitable massacre.
James Fenton
For me, it’s more powerful to hear people sing about God than love in most circumstances because I’ve been hearing people sing about love for most of my life.
Jim James
I was very shy. I didn’t really hang around with hearing people very much. Mostly I had deaf friends.
Millicent Simmonds
I am often disgusted at hearing young people I know, declare that they are afraid of doing this or that, because they MIGHT be killed.
William John Wills
That job should not be a political job. We should not be hearing very publicly from the leader of the FBI.
Pam Bondi
Having a Nobel Prize or being a famous scientist will get you a week to a week and a half, metaphorically speaking, of a hearing for your new idea, but after that, it’s going to tank if you don’t have the evidence and support for it.
Michael Shermer
I had problems getting my words out. If people spoke directly to me, I understood what they said. But when the grownups got to yakking really fast by themselves, it just sounded like ‘oi oi.’ I thought grownups had a separate language. I’ve now figured out I was not hearing the hard consonant sounds.
Temple Grandin
I get really tired of hearing of all these old rockers whine and complain about how hard life on the road can be. Just stop if you don’t like it. I don’t think of it as work. I love it all.
Edgar Winter
For years now, we’ve been hearing about how China is the great copycat nation, the manufacturer of designs drawn up in other countries, and then an imitator for its own products. That’s been true, as the developing country followed a path that Japan and then Korea plowed before it.
Adam Lashinsky
Goethe died in 1832. As you know, Goethe was very active in science. In fact, he did some very good scientific work in plant morphology and mineralogy. But he was quite bitter at the way in which many scientists refused to grant him a hearing because he was a poet and therefore, they felt, he couldn’t be serious.
Stephen Jay Gould
I just want to encourage you all… to rethink the resettlement of refugees in this country, especially in the numbers I’m hearing.
Jeff Duncan
I come from a town of 800 people, and you just listen to Jay Z there. You never think about meeting him. Then suddenly, one day, you’re in his office, hearing stories about his whole journey.
Willie Cauley-Stein
I get to listen and enjoy music that is partially mine. Maybe influenced and guided. I created some simple outlines, but ultimately, I’m hearing a derivative work.
It’s hard for me to stay silent when I keep hearing that peace is only attainable through war. There’s nothing more scary than watching ignorance in action.
Tom Smothers
I like to paint and spend a lot of time doing art. For me, it’s about hearing yourself and putting it out there as art. It’s like a therapy thing.
Daniel Zovatto
There are lines that I know are going to get a belly laugh, but after a few shows I get sick of hearing myself say them so I drop them.
Sammy Davis, Jr.
For me, growing up and going to school and not seeing any anti-bullying posters and not hearing people talk about bullying was very desolate.
Shane Koyczan
I have been hearing gossip and lies since I began working. When I was 17, I used to get very angry because I opened a magazine and I saw myself in a picture on a motorcycle, and the headline was, ‘I’m getting married next month.’
Penelope Cruz
Some people are tired of hearing me tweet because they want me to stick to football but I like to use social media like I was a regular guy because I think I am.
Chris Long
The voice of the intellect is a soft one, but it does not rest until it has gained a hearing.
Sigmund Freud
I got this Christmas gift with the entire Beatles catalog. I had fun trying to duplicate what I was hearing on these records, only using the instruments I had at hand – an acoustic guitar, and that’s all. It was endlessly amusing to me to try to imitate John Lennon and Paul McCartney’s harmonies using the guitar.
M. Ward
We fill our lives with all sorts of things that make it easier for us to get along in the world: wheelchairs, crutches, grabber sticks, hearing aids, canes, guide dogs, modified vehicles, ramps, as well as other kinds of services and supports. Disability does not necessarily mean dependence on other people.
Stella Young
As long as my record stands in federal court, any American citizen can be held in prison or concentration camps without a trial or a hearing.
Fred Korematsu
I’m hearing from fans about how they got out of an abusive relationship. That’s why I tell people you’ve got to watch ‘The Real.’ We are about comedy and inspiration, but personal moments come up, and people are moved by it.
Loni Love
I was in Deadwood at the time and on hearing of the killing made my way at once to the scene of the shooting and found that my friend had been killed by McCall.
Calamity Jane
Every girl likes feeling hot and sexy and beautiful and likes hearing it.
Hayden Panettiere
I’ve been changed watching films or reading books or hearing music, and that helps you to live your life.
Juliette Binoche
Some people spend their time and thoughts in feeling, hearing, seeing, and listening. Whatever cannot be felt or experienced they will not accept. We call these people ’emotional.’
Mother Angelica
It’s too hard to present an opinion on something that’s not true to who you are. It’s much easier to base opinions and debates off of fact and your true heart on things. To me that just comes quite naturally, and it’s also about being open to what the debate is about and hearing the other side.
Elisabeth Hasselbeck
I remember going down the tunnel into the Olympic Stadium and getting a glimpse of all the people and hearing all the noise, all the people shouting for us. I’d seen Usain Bolt on the warm-up track, and then, as I walked into the stadium, I sort of realised how big it was!
Katarina Johnson-Thompson
I love talking to people, hearing people’s stories; I love honest things.
Tali Lennox
People who are for diversity of thought, actually, are okay with hearing some opinions that they don’t like. I quite literally see none of that on the Left.
Dave Rubin
I’m so happy that we’re finally hearing the stories and voices of women who make America. We do what we see, not what we’re told, so an incomplete story of this country damages everyone.
Gloria Steinem
Big Ben… hearing the chimes makes me feel at home.
Jane Birkin
Some of us believe, with good reasons, that the Republicans are ‘mad-dogging’ Hillary Clinton with the Benghazi hearing to damage not only her presidential prospects, but also to damage President Obama’s credibility.
Donna Brazile
You know, growing up, I lived in a neighborhood in Long Island where there was basically one black family. And I remember hearing all the parents and the kids in the neighborhood say racist things about this family.
Lorraine Bracco
You never really learn much from hearing yourself talk.
George Clooney
Early on, one of my favorites was Ray Charles. I remember hearing ‘I Can’t Stop Loving You’ in the early ’60s and thinking, ‘What an unbelievably soulful voice.’ In those days, the Deep South was extremely segregated.
Don Felder
One of the best things I get to do is meet people that have been to the shows and listened to the music. I still don’t indulge in the social media side of things, so that’s my way of starting conversations – actually hearing people talk.
Paolo Nutini
A lot of new artists, especially girl artists, feel pressure to be so ‘media perfect’ and ‘trained.’ I’m intelligent, but I don’t like hearing regurgitated answers in interviews that sound so rehearsed.
Maren Morris
I think everyone feels alone in their sadness, and there’s a certain value to hearing other people’s sad stories.
Brandon Stanton
It is my hope that during my brief passage through this universe, that I may share with you the joy of hearing the music of the stars… knowing that the composer was from a distant place and the songs were written eons ago, which now fall gently on this place for all to hear.
Richard Baker
The duty of rhetoric is to deal with such matters as we deliberate upon without arts or systems to guide us, in the hearing of persons who cannot take in at a glance a complicated argument or follow a long chain of reasoning.
I remember hearing songs from the Mother Love Bone album, and hearing Alice in Chains, and feeling like this is more than just a fad or moment.
Chris Cornell
My most powerful memory was hearing Earl Scruggs on ‘The Beverly Hillbillies’ as a 5 or 6 year old. That sound just blew me away, shook my head up.
Bela Fleck
We were constantly hearing it repeated, that we must never again look upon ourselves as our own; but must remember, that we were solemnly and irrevocably devoted to God.
Maria Monk
I started hearing people say, ‘There’s a blog about your hair, and there are all of these Tumblr accounts.’ I’m like, ‘What’s Tumblr?’ I’m pretty mystified by it, because I look around, and a lot of people have great hair.
Connie Britton
The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them.
George Orwell
Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Fear comes by hearing and a hearing by the word of the devil. The lies of Satan.
Kenneth Copeland
My mom did a great job because ever since I was born, she would put me into any type of sporting activity with hearing teams.
Nyle DiMarco
As a writer, I find it very satisfying when a lyric suddenly ties together more neatly than you expected it to. But for the listener, hearing a good lyric is not generally as exciting as hearing a great beat or a great riff or a great melody or even a distinctive singing voice for the first time.
Adam Schlesinger
The importance and influence of books on me has been cumulative: the result of hearing and reading lots of stories about interesting people and places.
Louise Brown
I come to writing from hearing great stories as a child in Louisiana, where the mark of a person was his or her ability to be a raconteur. I also come to writing as a professional actress whose body has been trained to listen and smell and inhabit characters without judgment.
Rebecca Wells
It’s not really that I’ve been an advocate for hearing aids for a long time, it’s just that I’ve been losing my hearing for a long time! So it’s actually very important for me because I’m actually hearing impaired and I simply want to hear better!
Leslie Nielsen
A day off after a show with no agenda in a foreign city is about the most fertile creative situation I can imagine. Just walking with nothing to do, killing time and hearing the sights and sounds of an unfamiliar place.
Andrew Bird
Of course, I grew up hearing Latin music but, to be honest, aside from my personal circumstances, like most kids I wanted to rebel against what I considered to be such old fashioned fare.
Oscar Hijuelos
I won’t wear rings and jewelry on the stage because I don’t want you looking at my hands. I want you hearing what I’m saying.
Mavis Staples
If we had a keen vision of all that is ordinary in human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow or the squirrel’s heart beat, and we should die of that roar which is the other side of silence.
George Eliot
The total loss of hearing was a process that lasted more than a decade, but it was sufficiently gradual for me to attend Sydney Boys’ High School and to profit from the teaching there.
John Cornforth
One thing I always really enjoyed about Quincy Jones’ production technique was that there were so many layers to every song. Like, one week you’d hear a new trumpet-line, then the next week you’d hear – be hearing a new guitar-line.
Why not share with the world the way it is and tell them my feelings about my cat, and how I played with my kids, and how addicted to Christmas time I am, and the smell of pine needles and hearing my kids laugh.
Steven Tyler
The process of learning requires not only hearing and applying but also forgetting and then remembering again.
John Gray
That was something we were trying to figure out: Are we allowed to do a jazz song? Are we allowed to do cabaret? Just from hearing the Beatles, it was like, ‘Well, they did it. It’s okay to write something other than a standard rock song.’
Ryan Ross
I am a little deaf now. Without my hearing aids in, I miss a lot of peripheral sounds. I had tinnitus, too, for a while.
Roger Taylor
All our relationships are person-to-person. They involve people seeing, hearing, touching, and speaking to each other; they involve sharing goods; and they involve moral values like generosity and compassion.
Brendan Myers
Maybe it’s whiner’s fatigue, but I’m getting tired of hearing about how hard it is to start a company and be a CEO. It’s not that hard.
David Ulevitch
The thing about hearing loss is that no one can see it. Most people are so impatient; they just assume that the person with hearing loss is being rude, or slow-witted.
Marion Ross
The thing I try to do the most is to play in terms of the song and play in terms of what I’m hearing.
Jimmy Chamberlin
I love ‘hearing a person’s face’ in their music. I’ve been told by fans that they can tell when I’m smiling or feeling mischievous in my voice – that’s a huge compliment.
Alissa White-Gluz
I love hearing other people’s stories, and I freely admit I’m scavenging for material through their conversations, but really, at the same time, I’m living an ordinary life.
Liane Moriarty
I remember hearing Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, Big Bill Broonzy, Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley and not really knowing anything about the geography or the culture of the music. But for some reason it did something to me – it resonated.
Eric Clapton
I’m sick of hearing, thinking and talking about Woody Allen. Nonetheless, the allegations against him continue to capture our national attention because so much of the story is strange and sordid.
Roxane Gay
I love hearing my audience breathe.
I don’t think anything’s more rewarding than hearing that you’ve helped someone gain a love of reading.
James Dashner
There’s music every day. I don’t think I could write without it. Not that I listen while I’m writing. It’s more hearing a piece of music that I want to somehow convert into prose, as a creative inspiration.
Nick Hornby
Hearing things like ‘Wake Up’ by Lora Logic, or the Raincoats’ ‘In Love’ – that was something I wasn’t prepared for. I couldn’t hear anything that came before it in the music, and I didn’t want to. I was absolutely in love with its out-of-nowhereness.
Greil Marcus
One of my sensory problems was hearing sensitivity, where certain loud noises, such as a school bell, hurt my ears. It sounded like a dentist drill going through my ears.
Temple Grandin
As far as ‘Windup Girl’ becoming a hit – none of us expected that. ‘Night Shade’ was just hoping not to lose their shirts, and I had grown up hearing from everyone that science fiction didn’t sell, so all of our expectations were very low.
Paolo Bacigalupi
The only times during my religious instruction I remember hearing God’s name invoked with any sincere conviction at all was in the oft-repeated and breathtakingly chauvinistic claim that Israel’s ‘miraculous’ military victories over much-stronger enemies proved that He was ever on Zion’s side.
Rick Perlstein
We all identify with the people we see, and in a good documentary, we are not just reading an account of the world, we’re seeing and hearing our world.
Joshua Oppenheimer
I don’t necessarily think that having more money helps make you make a better film. Sometimes having less money is better. You’re forced into being more original; you’re forced into hearing something versus seeing it.
Doug Liman
I remember hearing that when Judi Dench was starting out at the Old Vic, she used to stand by the side of the stage watching the actors around her, and I can see why: That is where you really learn!
Jessie Buckley
I think it was, my parents got me a karaoke machine when I was about 9 years old. Even before that, they got me a tape recorder that I used to walk around my life with. And there was something about recording and then hearing myself back.
Leslie Odom, Jr.
That’s what this industry is all about – supporting artists and supporting storytellers and hearing the audience for what they want and need. There still is a lack of value for what black women want, yet we have proven to be one of the strongest consumers in the marketplace.
Mara Brock Akil
Acting is a win-win situation. There is no risk involved. That’s why I get tired of hearing actors who try to make out that there’s a downside to it. Fame is an odd thing. It bugs you a little bit, but it’s really not bad.
John Corbett
For some young people, their first experience ever hearing punk rock music was playing the Green Bay Packers on ‘Madden’.
Billie Joe Armstrong
I drink tons of water. It always sounds like the lamest thing, but there’s a reason you keep hearing this over and over again. It really works.
Rachelle Lefevre
I’m really tired, incredibly tired of hearing people say that fashion is behind anorexia.
Bianca Balti
Neymar is probably tired of hearing people talk about him.
Lucas Moura
People in general are equally horrified at hearing the Christian religion doubted, and at seeing it practiced.
Samuel Butler
You have to make time for fans, and you really need to appreciate them. You have to remember that if they weren’t buying, playing, or streaming your music, you wouldn’t be in the charts, and people wouldn’t be hearing your music.
The doctor said, ‘You have a lump on your breast’. Hearing those words was a reminder, a kick up the bum if you like, telling me that life is very unpredictable.
Jameela Jamil
It’s only when I’m on stage that I really come to terms with the fact that other people are hearing my most inner, darkest thoughts.
Bishop Briggs
Hearing Mr. Trump in person, I finally understood why millions of voters, especially voters who have been ignored and left behind in this economy, connect with him.
Mercedes Schlapp
During the four years I had spent in New York, I had achieved top status as a model and had worked for the best photographers and designers in the world. I had grown used to hearing that I was exotic and high-fashion.
Anjelica Huston
My mom loves the ’80s. I grew up hearing a lot about the ’80s.
Natalia Dyer
I’ve been a huge Gregg Allman fan since first hearing the Brothers’ live ‘Fillmore’ album.
Peter Frampton
‘Bob’s Burgers’ is done with the cast all together – not necessarily all together: some are in L.A. and some are in New York, but we’re hearing each other. So scenes are performed as a group. And ‘Archer’ is just me alone in a booth.
H. Jon Benjamin
As an Indian, and now as a politician and a government minister, I’ve become rather concerned about the hype we’re hearing about our own country, all this talk about India becoming a world leader, even the next superpower.
Shashi Tharoor
If, after hearing my songs, just one human being is inspired to say something nasty to a friend or, perhaps to strike a loved one, it will all have been worth the while.
Tom Lehrer
Rule number one is, make sure that you face the person with hearing loss when you are speaking to them.
Marion Ross
For all the import and message of ‘The Iliad,’ it’s ultimately a story that’s meant to be heard, and the person hearing ‘The Iliad’ determines what it means.
Denis O’Hare
I am producing sounds that people are not used to hearing from the harp.
Joanna Newsom
Tonight, you are hearing from the Democratic women of the Senate… We stand together on so many issues: economic prosperity, quality education for all, protecting a woman’s right to choose.
Barbara Boxer
Analytical clarity is the result of hard, syllogistic thinking, and that thinking has to be done alone. It’s not just being physically alone but also alone with your thoughts – not looking at your phone, not hearing the buzz of an incoming text message or email.
Raymond Kethledge
I’m a fan of all music, and probably my first – well, not the very first music I listened to, but back in the late fifties, when I first started hearing rock & roll, it was definitely tinged with doo wop and also Elvis and all those great songs.
Timothy B. Schmit
The ‘Agent X’ set was never boring. During the first few days, I had to adjust to the loud noise on set, which included gun shots and explosions. After we finished filming the season, I realized I missed hearing all the noise and driving on empty freeways.
Olga Fonda
Anytime I do a movie or a TV show, I make them aware of my hearing loss at the beginning, and that makes it much easier for all of us to communicate and get the job done.
Lou Ferrigno
I always had a love for the business. I remember hearing the stories about the patriarch of our family, ‘High Chief’ Peter Maivia, starting out wrestling in a rundown gym back in Auckland, New Zealand, then traveling the world, wrestling all over.
Nia Jax
The biggest thing I’ve had to overcome was clinical depression. Your mind is the most powerful weapon you have once you can get control of your mind… I had to stop hearing the negative voices where Jennifer was not worthy of love or living.
Jennifer Holliday
For me, my first hearing of the script matters. It has to excite me as an actor and as an audience.
Kriti Sanon
I made myself into what I thought was a big-time player, and nobody in L.A. seemed to care or believe I was any good. When I started hearing I wouldn’t play in college, I would just let it simmer inside me and then be like, ‘Okay. That’s what you think? Okay.’ The number zero was the only way I could express that.
Gilbert Arenas
Schizophrenia is hearing voices, not doing voices.
Maria Bamford
There’s nothing better than hearing someone laugh.
Billy Magnussen
I was taking care of people my age who were dying. The constant feeling, hearing from them, was that life is transient and can end very quickly, so don’t postpone your dreams.
Abraham Verghese
One feels the excitement of hearing an untold story.
John Hope
I didn’t spend a lot of time with prison guards, but my father was an assistant district attorney for a long time so I was always hearing stories about prisoners and prison guards.
Taylor Schilling
It always struck me as pretty cool that people who changed the world often knew each other. After reading them separately, hearing that David Hume and Adam Smith were friends made sense.
Joe Lonsdale
I really like to hear actors talk about acting, but I don’t really like hearing myself talk.
Michael Keaton
Sometimes when troops are overseas working these incredibly long hours in a difficult situation, they’re not always hearing how much they’re appreciated.
Kyrsten Sinema
I’ve always, always, always listened to music since I was, like, 7 years old and made up stories in my head based on what I was hearing.
Michael Giacchino
Russian children typically hear racist and ethnic slurs against Caucasus natives at home before hearing it on the streets.
Margarita Simonyan
You’re going to hear a lot from President Obama and yes, from Joe Biden, you’re hearing a little bit about Medicare these days. What they will not tell you is they turned Medicare into a piggybank to fund ‘Obamacare.’ They took $716 billion dollars to pay for the ‘Obamacare’ program.
Paul Ryan
I guess artists are living inspiration. There’s something very pure about a person that fantasizes. I like hearing their stories, watching them work. Their take on the world interests me. It’s not unified.
Dasha Zhukova
When I talk of hearing a poet’s voice speaking, I always think of it as in the presence of the man.
Norman MacCaig
What I saw when I was doing research is that in pursuit of a middle ground, people will kind of split the difference between the two extremes that they’re hearing. And I think what’s problematic is that people are seeing vaccinating on schedule, on time, as an extreme position.
Eula Biss
When the script is finished, and you’re sitting around at a table read, and all the actors are reading the words that you’ve written, and you’re hearing it out loud for the first time, that is always, every single time, no matter what, a magical process.
Shonda Rhimes
After all those years as a woman hearing ‘not thin enough, not pretty enough, not smart enough, not this enough, not that enough,’ almost overnight I woke up one morning and thought, ‘I’m enough.’
Anna Quindlen
I’m often reading a magazine and hearing about someone’s new record, and I think, ‘Oh, boy, that’s gonna be better than me.’ It’s a very common thing.
Paul McCartney
In the 1980s, there was no category to stick me in. ‘He sounds too smart’ is what I was hearing. I realized that I had to become a member of the school of what I call ‘ugly acting.’ Which meant I wanted to do what Dustin Hoffman did very successfully: to play character roles, but lead character roles.
Joe Morton
I’m a voracious reader. What that does is keep your mind fresh and active and hearing different voices and different styles. TV can be derivative, and if you just watch TV, you’re not widening the circle.
Nina Tassler
The long irons are the nemesis of the average golfer. I’m convinced that the underlying reason for this is that he keeps hearing how hard they are to handle. They’re not that difficult, truly.
Jack Nicklaus
I get so many different types of people emailing me how much my story impacts them. Hearing that inspires me every day to keep going and going.
Ashley Nell Tipton
I’m used to hearing myself. My own voice.
Billy Eckstine
Test ideas in the marketplace. You learn from hearing a range of perspectives. Consultation helps engender the support decisions need to be successfully implemented.
Donald Rumsfeld
What we’ve been hearing over and over again is that the reason Republicans are opposed to the surtax is because of the concern of its impact on job creation. Well, if you carve out employers, you take away that argument.
Susan Collins
I think recordings have been a terrific advance because now, when you have a piece of music, particularly something that appears to the listener very complicated, there’s really a push to the world to try to figure out what it was that he was hearing.
Leo Ornstein
I just wanna give a big shout out to all the fans out there who have followed my work up until now. You guys are amazing!! Hearing from fans is the best feeling in the world.
Lindsey Shaw
It was amazing to me that, all of a sudden, I was hearing my music on the radio and coming out of cars.
Lenny Kravitz
I’m not a very spiritual guy when it comes to music. I remember hearing Carlos Santana say that angels helped him write his songs. And I thought, ‘Really, angels?’
Chris Isaak
Vaccines save lives; fear endangers them. It’s a simple message parents need to keep hearing.
Jeffrey Kluger
I haven’t always voted for the same party, mostly because I find that strange. One thing I’ve never quite understood is when people say ‘I’m a Conservative’ or ‘I’m Labour,’ before even hearing what the person running stands for or wants to change.
James Corden
Being respected by people on both sides of the aisle is really important to me – even in an age when giving a hearing to ‘both sides’ is considered a smear in some corners.
Kasie Hunt
Cable’s on fire. Traditional broadcast TV’s hearing a death knell. I sample as much television as possible. I like ‘Homeland,’ ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Veep.’ Now reinvention’s important.
Darren Star
I met the Gallagher brothers, and Noel was quoting my ‘Fonejacker’ catchphrases. Hearing your heroes quote you is incredible.
Kayvan Novak
Hearing a whole entire room sing back to me, ‘I guess it’s true I’m not good at a one-night stand,’ you know, I just can’t explain the feeling. It’s unreal. You feel like you’ve just read your diary to thousands of people and they’ve gone, ‘It’s okay. We still love you.’
Sam Smith
That was very flattering, meeting Steve Vai and hearing his stuff, because he was kind of a fan, even though we kind of dumbed down what he was doing and what people were doing in the ’80s. We weren’t doing solos; we were doing sounds and all this creepy, trippy stuff.
Brian Welch
My fondest memory of Tupac is my father producing ‘Toss It Up’ for him when I was 7 years old and hearing that.
Demetrius Shipp, Jr.
Things are going better now than ever, but in 24 months? I could be hearing crickets.
Jason Bateman
I kept hearing about my 54-hole record and I kept telling myself that records are made to be broken.
Gary Woodland
I listened to Pablo Casals, which was a big change for me. Without hearing Casals, I would never have advanced as I did.
Mstislav Rostropovich
When I write, I can become this ecstatic, crazy fellow, hearing the voices and just loosening up and letting them grow.
Ethan Canin
If I’ve had a bad game, I know I’ve had a bad game, and I don’t mind hearing it.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
I remember seeing the Olympics when I was 13. I always wanted to know how it felt to stand on top of the podium hearing your country’s anthem while watching your flag being raised in something you poured your heart and soul into.
Oksana Masters
When we improvise freely – that is, without a structure – it tends to sound more like 20th century classical music, more like a classical ensemble improvising, as opposed to a free-jazz group, where you’re more used to hearing saxophones honking.
John Abercrombie
People are always warning me that I’m going to burn out. But the truth is, the only thing that tires me out is hearing people tell me that. Opposite shows, opposite coasts, opposite demographics, opposite everything – I love it, man!
Michael Strahan
I search for different tonalities in my taps. But my greatest pleasure is hearing a note I haven’t heard before, hearing a chord that sparks something new.
Savion Glover
I have incredibly sensitive hearing. I often hear people talking about me. Sometimes it’s amazing and sometimes you hear gossip you’d rather not.
Dustin Lance Black
We are a nation of immigrants. We are the children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the ones who wanted a better life, the driven ones, the ones who woke up at night hearing that voice telling them that life in that place called America could be better.
Mitt Romney
I’m hearing echoes of Bill Clinton, circa 1996, in President Obama’s reelection rhetoric.
Ron Fournier
Sometimes a break-up song is perceived as that because that’s what the person who’s hearing it needs.
Ryan Adams
When you listen to stereo on your home system, your both ears hear both speakers. Turn on the left speaker sometime and notice you’re hearing it also in your right ear.
Woody Norris
And I understand that, I testified in closed hearings over eight years because there are intelligence matters, there are sensitive matters that should not be held in a public hearing.
Louis Freeh
The danger in having modern music tied to a period piece is that hearing something may take you out of the moment.
Aldis Hodge
I have defined values and I’m honest about those leanings. But I have no allegiance to any particular political team. I only have an allegiance to those values and the truth. And I’m open to hearing how I’m wrong and I’m open to being the butt of the joke.
Will Cain
Even as a kid, I’d have a recorder, and I’d lean it up against a TV and record ‘I Love Lucy.’ I loved hearing the audience laughing. It was really exciting to me.
Randall Park
When I moved to Beijing in 2005 to write, I was accustomed to hearing the story of China’s transformation told in vast, sweeping strokes – involving one fifth of humanity and great pivots of politics and economics.
Evan Osnos
I’m not really a knob-twiddler. I always work with an engineer; I’m not super hands-on when it comes to mixing boards and computers. I’m much more about what I’m hearing and what it needs to be like. I deal with songs and ideas and instruments.
Danger Mouse
When you say something, and a thousand people are hearing it, you hope you leave an impression.
Mickey Drexler
It’s a great way to start the day, hearing you’ve been nominated for an Emmy. It’s just thrilling.
Allison Janney
When it was announced I had won the Tony Award, I was in Bangkok doing a movie with Judi Dench. I remember coming back from the location to the Oriental Hotel and hearing someone yelling across the reception area, ‘You’ve won the Tony!’ It was wonderful and strange to be halfway around the world.
Roger Rees
Social media is a really cool way to tell your story to people who are interested in hearing it. It’s not getting put through the filter of a television executive who’s decided you’re too old to justify the expenditure.
Greg Behrendt
People know there is a difference between what you do and what you accept. There is a difference between me knowing that people swear, me hearing people swear and me swearing, and everyone accepting that this is something you can do as much as you like.
Steven Pinker
I don’t have synesthesia, but I think when music is really intense, it’s almost like it’s more than just hearing. If you’re at a gig, and there’s just something amazing going on, it’s not really just hearing: it’s more of a total body sense, isn’t it? You get transported, and all your senses kind of join up.
Max Richter
On a day-to-day level, I love watching my kids accomplish the little things that seem trivial but are really milestones: seeing my son hit a baseball or watching my daughter draw something that actually looks like what she says she’s drawing. Or hearing them say ‘I love you.’
Matt Lauer
That was my way, and I also use the music after five years, I started hearing opera, opera, it was very good instrument to keep the spirit very strong because you feel like you are yourself singing opera, and I used to hear a lot of opera, they send me tapes.
Mordechai Vanunu
What makes me laugh is hearing the stuff about my son or the stuff about my mom. I was a big fan of Bill Cosby, Eddie Murphy; they talked a lot about their moms and their kids. Those are the things that inspired me to do stand-up.
Jo Koy
What I find is really interesting is the Ear-Nose-Throat doctor thing, which I know would take a lot of work and education, but it’s something that really interests me, because it’s something that helps people who’ve had the same problems as me, with the whole hearing and nose congestion and problems with your voice.
David Archuleta
And therefore we must seek dialogue in this networked world. We must ask which voice was actually attempting to make itself heard and saw no other possibility of gaining a hearing. To that extent, for a while this also represented a forced opening of a cosmopolitan view.
Ulrich Beck
There is Rio in 2016, but it won’t be the same as going to London and hearing 24,000 people – nearly all British – cheering, stamping their feet, and screaming your name.
Charlotte Dujardin
Sober up, and you see and hear everything you’d been able to avoid hearing before.
Sammy Davis, Jr.
I know it’s corny, but laughter is a two-way gift, and hearing people laugh just warms me through and through.
Andy Dick
I think the key to improv is always listening. It’s embracing. It’s positivity. It’s hearing things and not shutting them down.
Chris Gethard
Fear is static that prevents me from hearing myself.
Samuel Butler
I’ve had versions of disability my whole life, first with my hearing and then when I couldn’t walk for over a year.
Jameela Jamil
I hadn’t really noticed that I had a hearing problem. I just thought most people had given up on speaking clearly.
Hal Linden
In America, you keep on hearing productivity is low; secular stagnation, it’s a new normal. It’s just not true: We’ve had multiple wars; we’re not educating our kids. We had government shut downs, badly-spent money, failures in the health system, failures and an extreme amount of regulation – that’s why we’re going slow.
Jamie Dimon
Several people have told me that Queen Elizabeth made slighting comments about Philip within their hearing, and referred to him – not entirely humorously – as ‘the Hun.’
Gyles Brandreth
A moment for me that changed everything was hearing my song on the radio for the first time.
Chris Lane
When there is a voice in a piece of music, we tend to focus on the voice. That is probably something from when we were babies and we depended on hearing our mother’s voice.
Robert Wyatt
We were so limited on time for ‘No Burden’ that we didn’t get to overthink anything. There was no going for the perfect take, or even going for three takes. It was kind of nice because what you’re hearing is our first impulse.
Lucy Dacus
We were kept at work, and permitted to speak with each other only on such subjects as related to the Convent, and all in the hearing of the old nuns who sat by us.
Maria Monk
They have been deprived nutritionally, or some illness has not been picked up, or they have not been screened for vision or hearing defects, or they have not had some kind of a chronic illness or error of metabolism picked up.
C. Everett Koop
I’m very, very used to hearing no – repeatedly! – and through my experience founding startups, I’ve learned to view those two little letters not as a final roadblock but as a problem to be solved.
Naveen Jain
I started writing songs by myself. That always came from whatever I was feeling and being honest about that because I never had any intention of anyone ever hearing them.
Kelsea Ballerini
Everything about filmmaking is incredibly weird, and there’s nothing natural about watching yourself on the big screen or hearing your voice. It’s that same thing that you feel when you watch yourself on a video camera and you hate the sound of your voice – it’s that times 800.
Eddie Redmayne
So the next thing I assume I’ll be hearing from Republicans, they want to change rules some way, as they do on the House when you get a problem with ethics, they just change the rules.
Harry Reid
At the end of the day, the numbers that we’re hearing are not going to be totally correct or not correct at all.
Eugene Levy
I want lot of luck and want all my films to be really super hits. I don’t want to hear that the film is not good, but you did a good job. I am tired of hearing that. I am hoping for little luck so that my films do really well.
Shahid Kapoor
Since I knew my deaf identity since birth, it wasn’t hard for me to be comfortable, confident, and independent in a hearing world.
Nyle DiMarco
Whenever you listen to a CD or an album, it gets tiresome hearing the same thing over and over and over again.
John 5
For me, hearing my voice is sometimes a little nauseating, especially at Christmas.
Johnny Mathis
In 1967, I found out I was losing my hearing. I went 10 years without any help. I had otosclerosis – hardening of the bone in the middle of the ear.
Frankie Valli
I miss the ring and look forward to hearing the opening bell ring again.
Oleksandr Usyk
We moved to Baltimore, Maryland, in 1979, when I was five. The funny thing is that, even though Baltimore had one of the top murder rates in the country in those days, I grew up hearing about how dangerous New York was.
Philipp Meyer
I heard about the Holocaust before hearing the ‘Cinderella’ story or watching ‘Peter Pan.’
Joshua Oppenheimer
New York is great because it’s such a cross-section of the world, and when you’re used to people being shoulder-to-shoulder all the time – in the street, on the train – you become a people person. People are very open to hearing a lot of different perspectives, and they aren’t as sensitive.
Erik Griffin
Part of what I like to do with Brainfeeder is to get the younger kids hearing jazz, because they don’t know where to go to really hear it. Brainfeeder gives me a platform to put out people like Kamasi Washington or Austin Peralta.
Flying Lotus
I think you can appreciate different interpretations. Art is not a contest. I can even appreciate hearing someone play something in a way that I wouldn’t.
Joshua Bell
Asked at the hearing why she hadn’t pressed the FBI more closely about what it knew, or didn’t know, about domestic terrorist threats, Rice acted as though the question was an odd one: it wasn’t her job. Well, in retrospect, it was and now certainly is.
Howard Fineman
I was blown away by the control and the range that I was hearing. I’m listening to Pavarotti and thinking, What the hell have I been doing with my voice all these years?
Michael Bolton
I grew up listening to AM radio in the ’70s and hearing all of that great soul and rhythm and blues music, which definitely influenced the way I sing. But singing gospel has made me a much more humble person. There are so many people who were geniuses who only a few people knew about when they were alive.
Patty Griffin
I love to vacuum. There’s just something so satisfying about hearing detritus sucked up into a vacuum. Sand makes such a great sound when being vacuumed off a hardwood floor.
Rachel Nichols
I remember hearing other models talk about going to castings for Givenchy, and I was like, ‘What are they saying?’ And then I realized and was like, ‘Oh, the Give-in-chee one.’ I had been calling it Give-in-chee the whole time. I was shocked.
Jacquelyn Jablonski
Sometimes you do a sound installation, and the first day or two it is very exciting. Then you are hearing this every day for a month, and it becomes like a torture.
Jeffrey Deitch
There is no situation like the open road, and seeing things completely afresh. I’m used to traveling. It’s not a question of meeting or seeing new faces particularly, or hearing new stories, but of looking at life in a different way. It’s the curtain coming up on another act.
James Salter
The terms of poetry – some simple, some complicated, some ancient, some new – should bring us closer to what we’re hearing, enlarging our experience of it, enabling us to describe what we’re reading, to feel and think with greater precision.
Edward Hirsch
Personally, it was a big honor for me meeting so many families of the fallen soldiers and hearing their stories.
Dan Quinn
Traveling around the country, meeting fans and hearing their stories in person and on my radio show has reenergized my commitment to creating honest and inspirational content that not only serves my own creative purposes but can help and touch others as well.
Nikki Sixx
People who are deaf or hard of hearing need all the support we can give them.
Ken Loach
I myself have suffered periodically from hearing voices at night when I’m trying to sleep.
Elizabeth George
I was talking to Marylanders… What we were hearing, everywhere, was an overwhelming sense of frustration. People felt a huge disconnect between Annapolis and the rest of Maryland.
Larry Hogan
Similarly, many a young man, hearing for the first time of the refraction of stellar light, has thought that doubt was cast on the whole of astronomy, whereas nothing is required but an easily effected and unimportant correction to put everything right again.
Ernst Mach
I’ve been hearing it for years now, the Knicks. Every time I come home, it’s, ‘When are you coming home to the Knicks?’
Kemba Walker
If I were offered a cochlear implant today, I would prefer not to have one. But that’s not a statement about hearing aids or cochlear implants. It’s about who you are.
Marlee Matlin
I was taught that Jesus the Son of God was a white man, and hearing black people singing, ‘Lord, wash me, and I will be whiter than snow,’ made me sick.
Peter Tosh
I had seen ‘Do the Right Thing’ when I was at college, and it was incredibly inspiring as a piece of cinema. Just brilliant, I thought. But saw ‘Malcolm X’ with a crowded audience. It was my first time in an American cinema, hearing an audience respond. You know, in England, everyone is so restrained.
Justin Chadwick
I don’t even like hearing my own voice on an answering machine.
China Chow
I lost my spleen, I lost the hearing in my left ear, so I had a lot of internal organ damage.
Amy Purdy
Pigeons are gentle and smart and have complex social relationships. Their hearing and vision are both excellent.
Ingrid Newkirk
Since I was a kid, I’d wake up every morning hearing a voice say, ‘You’re the greatest rapper ever.’ I’m trying to prove that voice right.
Danny Brown
I’m tired of hearing about money, money, money, money, money. I just want to play the game, drink Pepsi, wear Reebok.
Shaquille O’Neal
I sing all the time. But maybe nobody’s hearing it, because I’m singing in my car or in my house or whatever. I don’t need the roar of the crowd, and I don’t need to hear cheers to feel validated.
Natalie Maines
We speak about understanding each other, having those conversations nationwide – culturally, historically – and yet there’s a lot of gaps. So I want to assist with closing the gap of knowing about and hearing about our Latino communities in terms of literature, in terms of writing.
Juan Felipe Herrera
I don’t really listen to contemporary R&B with an ear for hearing my influence. Music is a spirit unto itself, and all of us musicians influence each other all along the chain.
Maurice White
The doctors told me my hearing would get worse if I continued swimming, but I loved the water so much, I just couldn’t stop.
Gertrude Ederle
Although becoming a singer was my plan A after first hearing Whitney Houston when I was 17, I started off with plan B by going to the teacher-training college that my dad went to. It was a slow coming of age.
Toni Braxton
The irony of the Supreme Court hearing on these cases last week and of the outright hostility that the Court has displayed against religion in recent years is that above the head of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court is a concrete display of the Ten Commandments.
Cliff Stearns
Valuations are actually quite simple to grasp. A company is only worth what two acquirers are willing to pay for it. Don’t you just need to find that one buyer? If there is only one potential company interested in buying your startup, chances are you won’t be hearing the word ‘billion’ in the offer.
Jay Samit
To seek after any shape of God, and to assign a form and image to Him, is a proof of man’s folly. For God, whosoever he be (if haply there be any other but the world itself), and in what part soever resident, all sense He is, all sight, all hearing: He is the whole of the life and of the soul, all of Himself.
Pliny the Elder
If I could ever be on a Missy Elliott record, I could then die. Missy Elliott, Mary J. Blige – I love hearing them interviewed, I love the way they talk about their art. They’re very self-assured, they’re funny, they’re inviting. I love it.
Neko Case
I grew up hearing stories about my grandmother – my mother’s mother – who used to go to villages in India in her little VW bug. My grandmother would take a bullhorn and make sure women in these villages knew how to access birth control.
Kamala Harris
I started crying, because there’s nothing like hearing that the artist who originally did the song likes your version.
Kelly Rowland
I had given up the guitar between ’75 and ’78. I completely lost interest. I was sick of hearing other guitar players and I was tired of my tunes.
Ritchie Blackmore
Religion doesn’t play any part in my life in terms of how I live my life. But I don’t think I’ve ever gone through a day in my life without hearing someone say the word ‘Jew’ or saying it myself.
Larry David
While taking sign language in high school, one of our assignments was to go out and participate in the deaf community, so I really got to know a lot of the group from that. I felt like they needed a little bit more of a voice because people treat them different just because they’re hearing impaired.
Zach LaVine
Hearing ‘This Is How It Feels’ on the radio was an amazing feeling, like starting again. But I believe that, in the end, my name will be bigger then the Verve because of all those great tunes and the power of what I stand for.
Richard Ashcroft
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
When I was 9, I was into T. Rex, Gary Glitter, and Alice Cooper. I knew The Beatles because my nan introduced me to them, but T. Rex was the first band I got into myself. I got ‘Metal Guru’ a few months after hearing ‘Children of the Revolution’ in Pwllheli in North Wales at a market.
Ian Brown
I haven’t tweeted once in my life, but I’m sick of hearing about it already. What once may have been the cool way of letting a hundred people know that you’re about to go mow your lawn now has the feel of a used-to-be-fresh means of communicating. So yesterday, like two-way pagers. And AOL.
John Ridley
For the first three years of his life, my son insisted on hearing ‘Goodnight Moon’ before bedtime. Like most babies, he was not a good sleeper by disposition – but reading seemed to help, and this book specifically became part of his whole wind-down ritual.
Celeste Ng
I loved my 17 years with R.E.M., but I’m ready to reflect, assess and move on to a different phase of my life. The four of us will continue our close friendship, and I look forward to hearing their future efforts as the world’s biggest R.E.M. fan.
Bill Berry
Hearing Radney Foster was big for me, like hearing Al Green or R.E.M. for the first time.
Darius Rucker
The conception that, instead of this, contemporary society is at or near a turning point is very prominent in the views of a school of social scientists who, though they are still comparatively few, are getting more and more of a hearing.
Talcott Parsons
I take chances. I don’t limit myself. I don’t think anybody who listens to Boston would have predicted hearing a female rapper on the beginning of the song ‘Sail Away.’ But that’s what fit.
Tom Scholz
My hearing loss was essentially due to noise exposure during my military service. I was on an anti-submarine sub-chaser in WWII, and we had lots of depth charges going off all around us. There were plenty of explosions, and they were loud!
Norm Crosby
When I work out, I wear two in-the-ear hearing aids for comfort, and then I wear the behind-the-ears for my day-to-day non-physical activities, when I need maximum hearing and to communicate with people and do interviews!
Lou Ferrigno
I’ve always tried to do things a little bit before they were being done by the mainstream. I challenge myself to do that in stand-up also, to talk about things that I’m not hearing anybody talk about onstage and in the media.
Tom Green
I enjoyed hearing people do their own songs. I became attracted to singer-songwriters. I became interested in them as people; was curious about what they wanted to say.
Lyle Lovett
My friends and family have always been extremely supportive, but the support I’ve received from fans has been so overwhelming. I love hearing all of their ‘Fight Song’ stories; I have been so inspired by so many of them.
Rachel Platten
