Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best Night Quotes from famous authors such as A. R. Rahman, Kit Williams, Samantha Bond, Helen Mirren, Lucius Annaeus Seneca. Let’s look at these pieces of wisdom. We definitely have something to learn from them!
For me, there is no day or night for music. I often work through the night – without phone calls disturbing me.

There is that awful moment when you realize that you’re falling in love. That should be the most joyful moment, and actually it’s not. It’s always a moment that’s full of fear because you know, as night follows day, the joy is going to rapidly be followed by some pain or other. All the angst of a relationship.
We should every night call ourselves to an account: what infirmity have I mastered today? what passions opposed? what temptation resisted? what virtue acquired? Our vices will abate of themselves if they be brought every day to the shrift.
People don’t come to my concerts because they know the program. They come because they love the atmosphere and because they know that when I offer them a program it will be a night they never forget.
I actually think the whole concept of retirement is a bit stupid, so yes, I do want to do something else.

I want to feel like I can dance or party all night and not be worried about people stepping on my dress.

On that road of the informer, it is always night. I cannot ever inform against anyone without feeling something die within me. I inform without pleasure, because it is necessary.

One in 200 stars has habitable Earth-like planets surrounding it – in the galaxy, half a billion stars have Earth-like planets going around them – that’s huge, half a billion. So when we look at the night sky, it makes sense that someone is looking back at us.
I got bullied in high school. A lot of girls were so mean to me because their boyfriends wanted to hang out with me and my girls, so they pretty much bullied me to the point where I was crying at night.
I used to think as I looked out on the Hollywood night, ‘There must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me dreaming of being a movie star.’ But I’m not going to worry about them. I’m dreaming the hardest.
I sleep for about four hours a night, or day really. I go to bed at, like, 9 A.M., sleep for four hours, then get up and start the day again. I don’t mind if that’s not healthy.
Few if any teenagers can relate to getting up for school and finding famous comics like Pryor and Williams hanging out in your living room after a hard night of partying. But that’s Hollywood.

When I step forward on the floor, I have the confidence that I’m the best player playing that night and that I am the most prepared at what I need to be doing.
As an actor, some of my favorite things to work on are night exterior scenes. Any time that we’re on location and shooting at night, it’s just magic. I got to do that so many times working on ‘Vampire Diaries’ that it filled my hat.
My mother was a very wonderful woman. When she and my dad divorced, she moved to California and worked two jobs in the cannery at night and as a waitress during the day. But she saved enough money to establish a restaurant.
My downtime tends to resemble my uptime. Weekends are workdays, but toned down. Over the whole weekend, I may have five meetings, as opposed to six on a weekday. I used to play piano for 30 minutes at night, but I had to pull that out of my schedule. I don’t have time for nonwork stuff.
I only listen to my own music when I’m playing an hour-and-half set each night. I don’t put it on recreationally.

On any given night, what allows me to get to that higher ground is the audience.
I go to bed angry every night, and I get up angrier every morning.
I think about baseball when I wake up in the morning. I think about it all day and I dream about it at night. The only time I don’t think about it is when I’m playing it.

We need society, and we need solitude also, as we need summer and winter, day and night, exercise and rest.
We always work at least a month to six weeks before we go on the road, usually for something like eight to 12 hours a night. It took six weeks to do it this time. We just play virtually everything we know.

Sometimes, things may not go your way, but the effort should be there every single night.
It’s always nerve-wracking when you’re hosting ‘Saturday Night Live.’ You either sink or swim.
I slept with faith and found a corpse in my arms on awakening; I drank and danced all night with doubt and found her a virgin in the morning.
You realize, as time goes on, there is a certain expectation now in 2018 where fans want to see cool, exciting, hard-hitting sports entertainment or hard-hitting pro wrestling, and there are ways to give them that without necessarily putting yourself in the hospital that night or not being able to move the next morning.
When you have a girlfriend, there are many things that are irritating every day, every night. I’m sure it’s different for everyone, but when you fight, it gets really annoying.

A conservative is a liberal who got mugged the night before.
Love is staying up all night with a sick child – or a healthy adult.
It takes more than driving to become an IndyCar driver. Gone are the days when drivers show up Friday morning and go home Sunday night. We’re all integral to our partnerships, commercially, motorsports. We’re as much champions in the boardroom as we are on the racetrack.

Do not go gentle into that good night but rage, rage against the dying of the light.
I was drafted by the New Orleans Saints, and quite frankly, I got worn out playing football. I got tired of it.

It was a different town 7 nights a week and twice on Sunday.

With the Monday Night Wars, it was almost a pay-per-view every single Monday between the two factions because they were trying to throw everything but the kitchen sink to win the ratings war.
When I was a teenager, I did a lot of pull-ups and push-ups. Every night before bed, I’d do 150 – in sets of 30 or so. Looking back on it now, I’m not totally sure that’s the best way to improve as a climber. But it did make me a lot better at doing pull-ups and push-ups.
We have ended the VIP culture in Delhi. We made additional night shelters for the poor. We have started the anti-corruption helpline. We are impartial and are not against anybody.
Last tour my bass rig was breaking down every other night. That was a pain. We would get on stage and Trey would count off the song, and I’d play the first note and nothing would be there. Those guys would just roll their eyes.
I spent many hours slaving away, day and night, bleary eyed, on multi-million pound takeovers, mergers and acquisitions, and the rest. It could sound glamorous (especially when it involved overseas travel) but often it wasn’t partly because, as a lawyer, you were not the one calling the shots.
The night I flew out from Rwanda, I landed in Nairobi, and I was on my way back home, and my left side started to paralyze and remained paralyzed with pain, and the stress and so on began to appear physically.
When I finished my residency in New Orleans, I went to L.A. where I would work as a doctor during the day, and then at night I would actually go to The Improv and do standup, all the while kind of cultivating my comedy resume.

My mom would always read a book to me at night from when I was three. Now, I can’t go to sleep without reading a book. At the same time, once I read, it’s difficult for me to go to sleep, as I have an overactive imagination and I start thinking.
Lack of sleep makes me less productive. I need a good seven or eight hours a night.
And one by one the nights between our separated cities are joined to the night that unites us.
The truth is, for highly competitive bodybuilders, everyone eats the same – oatmeal, chicken, rice – and everyone cuts carbs out at night.

That’s why I had to leave Hair on Broadway, because I did it for about a year, and one night I was doing the show, and I realized, well, this is not real. I told the director. He says, man, it was a killer show tonight.
My father is my idol, so I always did everything like him. He used to work two jobs and still come home happy every night.
I am addicted to cereal. I am one of those people who just loves their cereal morning, noon and night. Kellogg’s message is what I tell my kids every single day, which is: You’ve gotta start off your day right with a good, healthy breakfast to give yourself the potential for greatness.
I cook a little bit. I make a Hungarian dish called chicken paprikash that’s out of this world. I’ll give a heads-up to all of your readers that it doesn’t have to be between Thai and Mexican every night. Toss some Hungarian in every once in a while. You will not be sorry. Good, solid peasant food.
I see America spreading disaster. I see America as a black curse upon the world. I see a long night settling in and that mushroom which has poisoned the world withering at the roots.

A man is a very small thing, and the night is very large and full of wonders.
The original ‘About Last Night’ was phenomenal.
My favorite room in the house is my kitchen. It’s definitely the heart and soul of our home. It’s where we gather in the morning as a family to start the day, and it’s where we wind down at night over supper.

When I was 4 years old, I woke up in the middle of the night and told my parents there was a witch crying outside in the boxwood bushes. I didn’t know who she was or why she was crying, but I was terribly upset.
‘Apricot Princess’ is like an inside album. You can listen to the album and feel all of those emotions within one night.
I don’t care if it was 2 o’clock in the morning after a night game. I had to break down the film by myself before I watched it with the team. I wanted to see everything I did wrong and did right or I wouldn’t be able to sleep.
Good night, and good luck.
It’s not easy to run a social media account over a long period of time, but we love communicating with our fans every day and night.
Laughter is day, and sobriety is night; a smile is the twilight that hovers gently between both, more bewitching than either.

Marriage is good for those who are afraid to sleep alone at night.
Being famous used to just defeat me. I wouldn’t leave my house because I was worried about someone being like, ‘Oh, are you Mac Miller?’ and then the rest of the night I couldn’t be myself.
I put so much pressure on myself to be perfect. Between homework and sports and drama and being social, I slept about four hours a night through high school and college.
My dad was a congressman, and he taught me at a very early age, ‘They voted for me, they view me as theirs, and I am.’ Our family’s phone in Memphis was always listed. It rang all day and all night.
Poets say science takes away from the beauty of the stars – mere globs of gas atoms. I, too, can see the stars on a desert night, and feel them. But do I see less or more?
For life is but a dream whose shapes return, some frequently, some seldom, some by night and some by day.
Going out at night and having a fabulous social life takes a lot out of you, and I don’t know if I have that much to give, honestly. I would rather give that time to my kids or spend that time reading a book or watching a film. I am selfish and lazy.
I love Las Vegas. I like that Las Vegas has everything. Everything and anything you want to do, you can do in Las Vegas. You can pretty much do it all day and all night if you want to.
‘Friday Night Lights’ was an incredible show.
Cities, like cats, will reveal themselves at night.
As regards to personal safety, you do have to be careful not to put yourself at risk when travelling in South Africa. You don’t want to go out exploring at night, for example.
And New York is the most beautiful city in the world? It is not far from it. No urban night is like the night there… Squares after squares of flame, set up and cut into the aether. Here is our poetry, for we have pulled down the stars to our will.
The fact that Eddie Vedder likes to play 3 hour plus shows a night, I have to be ready for that.
Coconut oil is my best friend – I put it all over my body every night. And in the morning, I wash it off so I’m not all greasy.
On rare occasions, Dad used to reminisce about when he met Eisenhower and how Churchill would pop in, in the late hours of the evening or night, carrying a cigar, when he’d obviously had a good dinner.

I come from Beverley in East Yorkshire, and no one there would step outside their front door, or even their back door, on a Saturday night – or any other time, for that matter – unless they were dressed to the nines.
I pray every night, sometimes long prayers about a lot of things and a lot of people, but I don’t talk about it or brag about it because that’s between God and me, and I’m no better than anybody else in God’s sight.
Trying to be a leader in a sort of very atypical workplace like ‘Saturday Night Live’ forces you to realize that no one wants you to be their leader. If you can help them get their thing on TV or whatever, they want that. But no adult is looking for a role model.
I do not enjoy being away from Richmond, my friends of a lifetime, and my home… I do not enjoy working 6 days a week and almost every night at a time when I had planned to be tapering off. There are compensations which appeal to any lawyer who is proud of his profession. The Supreme Court is an awesome place.
When I meet thousands of fans of the comic – when I realize every one of them can recite the Lantern Corps oath (‘In Brightest Day, in blackest night…’) – I know how important this is to people.
There is a myth that Rahman sir only works at night. He works through the day and night, so it depends what time slot you end up working with him. Besides nights, I have sung for him in the morning and at noon, too. I think he’s the first composer to work at night, and that’s why it’s spoken about so much.
I never played against my own age, and I was one of the best players. That’s when I would get really nervous, maybe not sleep the night before a game.
My husband has the philosophy that if you can work a Nintendo control, you can chop an onion. So, we have our children in the kitchen. We sit down every night for dinner. We’re trying to give our kids a sense of what’s going into their bodies, and it’s also good for family time.
At night, what you see is a city, because all you see is lights. By day, it doesn’t look like a city at all. The trees out-number the houses. And that’s completely typical of Seattle. You can’t quite tell: is it a city, is it a suburb, is the forest growing back?
I hate leaving home. I love what I do, but I’d love to go home every night.
My parents were just constantly affirming me in everything that I did. Late at night, I’d wake up and hear my mother talking over my bed, saying, ‘You’re going to do great on this test. You can do anything you want.’
If I ever get looks on the street, which, for the record, is almost never, it’s rarely because they think I’m someone they saw in a movie. More often someone sees me and thinks, ‘Hey, was that guy my waiter the other night?’
If I look in the mirror when I get up or before going to bed at night, I see a man of average ugliness with stubble, an unruly mane of hair, a squint nose, slightly protruding ears, and bags under my eyes. But I also see a man who’s completely happy with the figure staring back at him.
Although I am not Jewish, I have been to many Friday night Shabbats at my friends houses, and I absolutely love it. It’s a great and inspiring tradition to keep the family close.
I have a lot of power. Here, I can decide: training at six in the morning! Training 11 in the night! But my style is not to impose. I would like to convince the players of what they are doing. This takes more time.
Work hard. I got tenure a year early. Junior faculty members used to say to me: ‘Wow, what’s your secret?’ I said: ‘It’s pretty simple. Call me any Friday night in my office at 10 o’clock, and I’ll tell you.’
I wear a lot of hair extensions because I’m doing a lot of shoots and things like that. But for me, a good edge control is really important, and then a headscarf at night.

My father taught me photography. It was his hobby, and we had a small darkroom in the fruit cellar of our basement. It was the kind of makeshift darkroom that was only dark at night.
As the Obama administration negotiates with the Karzai government and with Pakistan, we may be tempted to make commitments that, in the name of nation-building, restrict our ability to fight terrorists. If we must involve the Afghan government in every night raid, our operations will slow and targets will escape.
My luck is getting worse and worse. Last night, for instance, I was mugged by a quaker.
We were a very popular live band in London, packing in 6,000 people a night, and the record companies that came after us wanted us to be the flavor of the month.
Anger may repast with thee for an hour, but not repose for a night; the continuance of anger is hatred, the continuance of hatred turns malice.
The Detroit String Quartet played Brahms last night. Brahms lost.
Summer ends, and Autumn comes, and he who would have it otherwise would have high tide always and a full moon every night.
One night in 1974, I made the comment, ‘Here I am, this fat kid, the son of a plumber. I don’t look like a body builder; fist fight in a parking lot, it doesn’t matter. I’m getting ready to sell out this building. I’m going to sell out Madison Square Garden one day. This is the American Dream. I’m living it.’
It often happens that I wake up at night and begin to think about a serious problem and decide I must tell the Pope about it. Then I wake up completely and remember that I am the Pope.
You’ve just got to bring it every night. And that’s what makes the great players great.
I got the call to play Tony Manero in ‘Saturday Night Fever’ in Madrid, a role I’d always wanted, as it’s such a well-constructed show, and my background is in musical theatre. I’d been travelling back and forth between London and Spain for auditions and had been borrowing money from friends to do it.
The friendship I had with Elvis began to take shape in 1968 when I was recording in Memphis. I’d record during the day, and Elvis would send one of his guys over to bring me to Graceland at night. Everything you’ve heard about Graceland during Elvis’s glory days is true and then some.
I remember 9/11; we had ‘Comics Come Home’ about a month after those events. That night, even the comedians were concerned. Would the audience be ready to laugh? It was a release for everyone.
Being home alone at night makes me a bit nervous. If I’m at home alone, I have to sleep on the sofa – I can’t face going to bed. I’m there with the TV on and all the lights on. I’m not very brave about anything in life. In tennis, yes. In everything else, not very.
I used to work until two in the morning every night, then still get up at six. Now, I have to help my daughter with her homework, spend time with my wife.
When I decided to be a musician I reckoned that that was going to be the way of less profit, less money. I was sort of giving up the idea of making a lot of money. It was what I loved to do. I would have done it anyway. If I’d had to work at Taco Bell I’d have still been out at night trying to play music.
The jazz rhythm won’t be understood by the bulk of my audience. That’s the problem. We can get away with maybe one tune a night. It depends on where we place it. A song like ‘Beyond the Sea,’ the fans love that. It’s fresh.
I’ve always had this hyper kinetic energy, so I don’t really need much sleep at night.
When Thomas Edison worked late into the night on the electric light, he had to do it by gas lamp or candle. I’m sure it made the work seem that much more urgent.
Numerous have been the manifestations of God’s providence in sustaining us. In the gloomy period of adversity, we have had ‘our cloud by day and pillar of fire by night.’ We have been reduced to distress, and the arm of Omnipotence has raised us up.
I just want to say, good night, sweet prince, may flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.
There have been times – and not just on ‘The Newsroom,’ but on ‘The West Wing,’ ‘Sports Night,’ ‘Studio 60’… – where it was hard to look the cast and crew in the eye, when I put a script on the table that I knew just wasn’t good enough.
Night comes to the desert all at once, as if someone turned off the light.
I love sports – I am a die-hard fan of soccer, and I am always at Maracana Stadium in Rio watching Flamengo play. I am also a big fan of basketball; I stay up at night to watch Lebron James play whenever I can.
I grew up in the South under segregation. So, I know what terrorism feels like – when your father could be taken out in the middle of the night and lynched just because he didn’t look like he was in an obeying frame of mind when a white person said something he must do. I mean, that’s terrorism, too.
I’m always amazed by the people who work on stage who sing night after night, day after day, week in week out.
Things happen for a reason, and the only thing you can do is at night time get on your knees and ask God for forgiveness for anything that you did that you didn’t feel was right.
They say you don’t want to know how sausage is made. Book coverage is like sausage in that way: better not to know exactly how the gatekeepers of mainstream media choose which books to crown as must-reads each season – just swallow it down with a cold beer and call it a night.
It was incredible being on tour with Taylor Swift: she was the epitome of a professional, and she works so hard. For someone as successful as her to work that hard every night – truly inspirational.
You know, when you really connect with the instrument and everything just comes out on an emotional level very naturally through your playing. That’s, you know, a great night. And I think the reason I love touring so much is you’re chasing that high around all the time, trying to have another good night.
On a Friday night, I switch on my log burner, stick on ‘Gardeners’ World’ and I am so happy.
If we’re talking fantasy, I would love to host a late night talk show… More Fallon than Leno. Those guys always seem like they’re having way too much fun at their ‘jobs.’
Middle age is when you’re sitting at home on a Saturday night and the telephone rings and you hope it isn’t for you.
I’ll never forget that first night with the team. Going to the ballpark on the bus was the hardest 30 minutes of my life. I had to walk down that aisle between all the players. I really didn’t know too much about the Detroit Tigers at that time.
I think the best thing I ever did was, years before I got the ‘Late Night’ show, when I first got out to Los Angeles to be a television writer, the first thing I did was I signed up to take improvisational classes… And I studied that for years, and I really loved it.
I like to consider myself a star – a star, that when you look in the sky, it’s always there. And on a clear night… a shooting star comes by, and get a little thrill, and you make a little wish. You need both types of stars, the shooting and the constant stars. The heavens include them all.
My dinners at home are startlingly simple. Every night, I stop at the market near my hotel and pick up a steak, lamb chops or some liver, which I broil in the electric oven in my room. I usually eat four or five raw carrots with my meat, and that is all. I must be part rabbit; I never get bored with raw carrots.
Oh, the summer night, Has a smile of light, And she sits on a sapphire throne.
For me, painting is a way to forget life. It is a cry in the night, a strangled laugh.
I loved Riot Grrl. Not only was it a punk rock revolution, but it meant you could get dressed for a night out for less than two pounds!
Al Nuke is almost like a real brother to me. Our chemistry is crazy because we’re like night and day, but we blend so well.
The thing I like about astronomy is being outside at night and seeing the stars in a dark sky. It makes you feel small.

During the day, I eat a lot of carbohydrates, but at night I stay away from such stuff.
Nations, like stars, are entitled to eclipse. All is well, provided the light returns and the eclipse does not become endless night. Dawn and resurrection are synonymous. The reappearance of the light is the same as the survival of the soul.

Both read the Bible day and night, but thou read black where I read white.

In a real dark night of the soul, it is always three o’clock in the morning, day after day.
The relationship between ‘My Chemical Romance’ and Michael Pedicone is over. He was caught red-handed stealing from the band and confessed to police after our show last night in Auburn, Washington. We are heartbroken and sick to our stomachs over this entire situation.
Pride is a time to celebrate what makes us unique and the more we let young people know that those things that make us different are actually our greatest strengths, the more comfortable we are in our own skin and the more peacefully we’ll sleep at night.
Saturday night is your big night. Everybody used to fry up fish and have one hell of a time. Find me playing till sunrise for 50 cents and a sandwich. And be glad of it. And they really liked the low-down blues.
I used to stay up all night, roam around, drink, and carry on like everybody else. That all changed when I got older, started to exercise and play golf. I knew by the time the day was over I would not feel like exercising, so I made it a point to exercise early.
There’s a reason why the Foo Fighters don’t blast out Nirvana songs every night: because we have a lot of respect for them. You know, that’s hallowed ground. We have to be careful.

I love just getting to experience the different types of fans and getting to perform in front of thousands of people every night; that is icing on the cake for me. That is the fun.

Do we care about these people that are HIV-positive whose lives have been ruined? Those are the people I’m the most concerned about. Every night I think about this.
On a Friday night in 1983, I was in a taxi in New York riding home from dinner with friends. A drunk driver ran a red light and hit the cab, and I was thrown toward the glass partition. I tried to duck, but my face hit the glass, and the impact fractured my cheekbone, my eye socket, my collarbone and several ribs.
I’ll watch a highlight tape of my kicks and I’ll play a song that I like the night before the game and then I’ll sing that song in my head to visually get myself ready and have positive thoughts.
It’s hard knowing who to trust with your personal life. When you cry in your room at night, you don’t always know who to call. So I am very close to my family.

I was sleeping the other night, alone, thanks to the exterminator.

Y’know, you can’t please all the people all the time… and last night, all those people were at my show.
For me, winning isn’t something that happens suddenly on the field when the whistle blows and the crowds roar. Winning is something that builds physically and mentally every day that you train and every night that you dream.
In the country the darkness of night is friendly and familiar, but in a city, with its blaze of lights, it is unnatural, hostile and menacing. It is like a monstrous vulture that hovers, biding its time.
Soup is really easy to make: you can take basil, celery, acorn squash and boil them and then put them in the blender with sea salt. It’s delicious and only takes about 15 minutes. You can make it the night before. It’s kind of like making baby puree, and there are a ton of super easy recipes.
One hot summer night in San Francisco, roughly 10 years ago, I was sitting in a crowded Pacific Heights restaurant when Alice Adams walked in with a man. She was about 60 at the time, and she was wearing a skirt that fell an inch or so above her knees and flat heels without stockings.
The times you have to get up in the middle of the night and hold one of your children because they’re scared of the lightning. Or changing diapers. That togetherness far outweighs the times you don’t get to sleep in.
I didn’t do this by myself, man. It was so many people, so many fans that came in there and cheered for me, night in and night out.
I got a chance to listen to and watch Thelonious Monk and his quartet play two shows a night, for six weeks. It was a great education. There was my university, man.

I was always stealing 40-gallon drums off the road at night, bringing them back to the workshop and cutting them up with a gas axe because I loved to weld. I would make creatures out of these old metal drums.
After a really hectic week, I hate going out on a Friday evening, so I’ll always opt for a night at home.
I stopped performing because I don’t have the temperament of a performer. You have to want to do the same thing over and over again. Once I got it right, I didn’t want to do it again. I always use the analogy of a novelist who has to read his novel in public night after night. I just didn’t want to do it.
The most efficient way to live reasonably is every morning to make a plan of one’s day and every night to examine the results obtained.
You don’t drive a NASCAR on the street, no matter how fun it might be, just like you don’t need an AR-15 to protect yourself when walking home at night. No one does.

Satire is what closes on Saturday night.
The moon looks upon many night flowers; the night flowers see but one moon.

I was born in London, and went to school in Scotland – I used to be dead tired when I got home at night.
Take stock of your thoughts and behavior. Each night ask yourself, when were you negative when you could have been positive? When did you withhold love when you might have given it? When did you play a neurotic game instead of behaving in a powerful way? Use this process to self-correct.
That smell of freshly cut grass makes me think of Friday night football in high school. The smell of popcorn and cigar smoke reminds me of the stadium. The cutting of the grass reminds me of the August practice.

There are pros and cons of experience. A con is that you can’t look at the business with a fresh pair of eyes and as objectively as if you were a new CEO. Fire yourself on a Friday night and come in on Monday morning as if a search firm put you there as a turn-around leader. Can you be objective and make the bold change?
The cowards and the impatient can enjoy one night stands as it takes a great deal of patience, unconditional love, trust, fearlessness and a deep sense of individuality to maintain relationships.

My idea of a romantic night is to watch action films.

I loved downers, almost any kind. Loved the colors of them. Loved them yellow… I did. I would just have a bouquet in my hands at night.

Music is moonlight in the gloomy night of life.
One morning, about four o’clock, I was driving my car just about as fast as I could. I thought, Why am I out this time of night? I was miserable, and it came to me: I’m falling in love with somebody I have no right to fall in love with.
Every night on the court I give my all, and if I’m not giving 100 percent, I criticize myself.

And hail their queen, fair regent of the night.

Medicine is my lawful wife and literature my mistress; when I get tired of one, I spend the night with the other.

A perfect weekend in London has to start on Friday night, by going to the theatre, the Donmar or the National. It’s a cliche for an actor, but I enjoy going as much as possible.

Sometimes I wake at night in the White House and rub my eyes and wonder if it is not all a dream.
The last thing you want to do is play a long gig on a hot night, pass out, and wind up in a hospital emergency room.
I could come home, and I would spend the rest of the night just lying on the floor or the sofa listening to albums. It was like a movie to me. I still do, really, and doing the radio show ensures that I’ll be sitting there listening.

I was very, very religious. And of course I wrote about it in ‘Night.’ I questioned God’s silence. So I questioned. I don’t have an answer for that. Does it mean that I stopped having faith? No. I have faith, but I question it.
Black Lives Matter started from a post that I put on Facebook after the acquittal of George Zimmerman. I woke up in the middle of the night sobbing, just trying to process what had happened and wanting to find community around being in a lot of grief and having a lot of rage.
During the day, I was a doctor. At night, you know, I was a comic. And it was really just to let off some steam. It just became my golf, you know, in many ways. Most doctors have golf as a hobby. Mine was doing comedy.

If you stare at a wall from four in the morning till nine at night, and you do that for a week, you are getting pretty close to nothingness.
I’m not a party person or someone who likes to sit and drink in clubs all night, and never really have been. I have a good time through work.
What people don’t understand is joining a gang ain’t bad, it’s cool, it’s fine. When you in the hood, joining a gang it’s cool because all your friends are in the gang, all your family’s in the gang. We’re not just killing people every night, we’re just hanging out, having a good time.
It is always consoling to think of suicide: in that way one gets through many a bad night.
I actually stop breathing, I think it’s 80 times a night, because I have sleep apnea. I’ve had it since I was a kid.
Uncle Matheson and my father would frequently argue long into the night about politics. Like me, he was all about socialism, togetherness and investing in people, whereas Matheson, to this day, holds very strong conservative views.
With the fearful strain that is on me night and day, if I did not laugh I should die.
My brother Art was a doo-wopper. He had a group that sat out on a park bench in New Orleans and sang harmonies at night, and they’d go around and win all the talent shows and get all the girls, you know.
It’s like gambling somehow. You go out for a night of drinking and you don’t know where your going to end up the next day. It could work out good or it could be disastrous. It’s like the throw of the dice.
Lynyrd Skynyrd is not a political band, but you know what? We believe in this country. We have a soft spot for our military. We love the red, white and blue, and every night we dedicate a portion of our show to our fighting men.

‘Animal House’ was my first movie, so I didn’t have anything to compare it to. I was a sight gag more than anything else. So I can’t say it was one of those things where your life changes. When the movie came out, I had to ask for the night off at the bar.
I talk about weird stuff. What I do only works at night, only on the radio.
He travels safest in the dark night who travels lightest.

I go out there to steal the show every night.
I’ve chosen not to live in Hollywood, and instead I live in Brooklyn, New York. It’s how I like to live. I’d rather hang out with my kids and family when I’m not working. Going to premieres is not my idea of a fun night out.
Poetry is my cheap means of transportation. By the end of the poem the reader should be in a different place from where he started. I would like him to be slightly disoriented at the end, like I drove him outside of town at night and dropped him off in a cornfield.
Zombies let us explore notions of the apocalypse – no water, food, medical care, the government imploding – while letting us sleep at night.
A reporter asked recently, ‘What keeps you up at night?’ I replied that I generally sleep well, but if I ever do have trouble, I don’t have to count sheep. I count all the states I’m glad I’m not the governor of.
What I tell young couples that are getting married is: you’re going to have quarrels, and on some things, you’re just going to have to agree to disagree. And when you go to bed at night, kiss each other and tell each other that you love each other. Don’t go to bed mad. Life is too short. Keep it simple.
There’s not a lot happening on a Sunday night in Indian Wells.
One night stands are not for me. I think it’s gross when you just give it up.
I wanted to be the next Dana Carvey. This was my ultimate goal. If I ever cut into a birthday cake and made a wish, I would wish to be on ‘Saturday Night Live.’ If I threw a coin into a fountain, I would wish to be on ‘Saturday Night Live.’ If I saw a shooting star, I would wish to be on ‘Saturday Night Live.’
I cannot walk through the suburbs in the solitude of the night without thinking that the night pleases us because it suppresses idle details, just as our memory does.

What keeps me up at night is poverty and unemployment.
I do not believe a man can ever leave his business. He ought to think of it by day and dream of it by night.
For the day, keep it simple, basic, minimalistic, natural. Stick to peaches and pinks. For night, you can add colour to your eyes, make them smoky, and also use shimmer and bronzer. Night make up also calls for louder lip colours.
Sometimes in the middle of the night, I wake up with a song in my head, and I have to finish it so I can fall back asleep.
I didn’t feel the need for anonymous affection, for people in the dark applauding. To me, it would be like writing a novel and then getting up every night and reading your novel.
As a kid, there are some things you looked forward to. You looked forward to Charlie Brown during Halloween and you looked forward to Monday Night Football.
I used to take girls out on a date to Night Court. And I’ll tell you, most girls, they got a kick out of going to Night Court. ‘Cause you get a lot of laughs… and it’s cheap.

Before I became a writer, I was running a jazz bar in the center of Tokyo, which means that I worked in filthy air all the time late into the night. I was very excited when I started making a living out of my writing, and I decided, ‘I will live in nothing but an absolutely healthy way.’
Was there ever in anyone’s life span a point free in time, devoid of memory, a night when choice was any more than the sum of all the choices gone before?
On the Junior Boys’ ‘When No-one Cares’ beats are abandoned altogether, the track’s ‘endless night’ lit only by the dying-star flares and stalactite-by-flashlight pulse of reverbed electronics.

You literally can’t do any more than your best so that was always my attitude and that is still my attitude, which is to go out there and give it my best every single night.
Cities might become biological entities, walls hung with curtains of algae that glow at night and sequester carbon, and floors made from tweaked cellular material that strengthens like bones as we walk on it.
Jal Mahal, Jaipur, holds a special place for me and it is especially beautiful by night. I enjoy our stay at the old havelis in the region.
I am really a loner after all; I am really not a social person. Because of my job, people think I am out every night, but I really hate all that. I am somebody who likes to be alone and see some close friends. I am a shy and introspective person.
At night, when the curtains are drawn and the fire flickers, my books attain a collective dignity.
I’m tired of Italian gangsters. Not that I don’t watch ‘The Godfather’ every morning when I get up and ‘Goodfellas’ when I go to sleep at night. But I’ve just always been fascinated by Russia as a country, by the Russian personality. And now Russia is literally a gangster nation.
I always think back to that first night in Brooklyn, where I debuted, and it was this total surprise. I just remember thinking, ‘I hope they care. I hope they remember me.’ The way they embraced me that night, I knew it was the start of something special.
The less I behave like Whistler’s mother the night before, the more I look like her the morning after.
There are a lot of people who wait tables. And especially because you can do it at night and you can do your work in the day, she and I had a very similar experience.
I want to spend the night alone in a haunted mansion. I wouldn’t say I’m sceptical because that word implies the truth is out there when there is no truth out there.
Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime, and falling in at night. I miss you like hell.
I didn’t feel the need for anonymous affection, for people in the dark applauding. To me, it would be like writing a novel and then getting up every night and reading your novel. Everything I did is on the record and, if you want to hear it, just listen to the record.
I was 16. In the middle of the night, I took a taxi to the Detroit train station – or maybe it was the Pontiac train station? – and got on a train to Chicago, then transferred to a train to San Diego where my boyfriend was living at the time.
Every night, I have to read a book, so that my mind will stop thinking about things that I stress about.
Expressions of affection, like putting your arm around someone’s shoulder, holding hands, or giving a kiss good night, involve the principle of honesty.

I think the ‘Jaws’ shark and the ‘Shark Night’ shark would fall in love and make sweet babies.
I was up late last night yapping about the elections on CNN and up early this morning doing the same thing in my daughter’s kindergarten class.
The Beliebers have done some pretty crazy stuff. Last week, the night before I was due to do a show in Germany, four girls went into a dumpster so they could sneak into the building. They climbed in and hid. When the guys working on the truck started getting the garbage they found them straight away. It was crazy.
I was 18 when I started. I was hanging out with some friends and they asked if I had tried stand-up before. I hadn’t, but I thought: ‘What the hell?’ So I went to an open mic night, and I liked it.
I go to the British Comedy Awards and, you know, quite a few people were making jokes at my expense. It just made me feel awful, because I am there with my wife and she has gone out and bought a dress. And it is my big night and I won, and yet the overriding experience was that of nastiness.
I only type every third night. I have no plan. My mind is a blank. I sit down. The typewriter gives me things I don’t even know I’m working on. It’s a free lunch. A free dinner. I don’t know how long it is going to continue, but so far there is nothing easier than writing.
Night is the mother of thoughts.
It’s like driving a car at night. You never see further than your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.

Nihilism in American comedy came along way before ‘The Simpsons.’ There was a fairly nihilistic point of view to ‘Saturday Night Live,’ for instance, back in the beginning, and a lot of really dark comedy had a really anti-sentimental take on life.
There’s a tendency to make more money at concerts. That’s from a financial standpoint. Night clubs have a better feel, better contact between the artist and the audience.
Every time we rock our babies in the night, we bring order back to a disordered world. Every time we look down at our children and cry, we make the world one shade brighter. That’s what children do to us – and for us.
I will be driving on the road after a show at night, and it will hit me that I am a WWE superstar, and this is what I dreamed about, and I get to live it.
Anyone who has a child knows the importance of not over-playing your hand. He was up all night playing some game on his smartphone and you feel like saying that if it happens again the phone is gone. Forever. Till he is old enough to buy his own. Till then he can have your old Nokia.
Zayn’s good to just sit down and chat to about pretty much anything. At the end of the night, we just sit around and talk about our life before One Direction, or anything at all, really.

I could be a model for one night. But I’m also a professional soccer player, and I like to be taken seriously on the field.

WrestleMania is a week of activities and family-oriented fun, and then there is the special night at the end of it where you can see history being made.
Every night, I say goodnight to the kids like Rajesh Khanna, muah muah, two kisses, say goodnight to my wife, and every night, I’d go to the recreation room and watch cricket with two old men.
Sometimes you don’t prepare much. I mean, when I did ‘Lonesome Dove’ way back I rode horses day and night for like three or four months, and that got me ready for that.
When I do an hour-and-a-half show, if I don’t improvise 20 minutes worth of new material each night, I feel I’ve let myself down.
I was with this girl the other night and from the way she was responding to my skillful caresses, you would have sworn that she was conscious from the top of her head to the tag on her toes.
It’s tough to go to sleep at night, and I wake up after five hours because I feel like I’m wasting time. I just sit up at night and think about what I can do next.
The truth is, this being errand boy to one hundred and fifty thousand people tires me so by night I am ready for bed instead of soirees.
The uncut diaries are 16 million words. It’s very tiring to do your diary every night before you go to bed.
I knew that my staying up would not change the election result if I were defeated, while if elected I had a hard day ahead of me. So I thought a night’s rest was best in any event.
A college experience is something everyone should have. Going to Waffle House late at night. Or the gym at midnight, until the wee hours of the morning. Just being kids. Hanging out.
I often lay on that bench looking up into the tree, past the trunk and up into the branches. It was particularly fine at night with the stars above the tree.
I see friends who are in different genres of music, and they say they’re so burnt playing the same stuff every night. That’s why you see a country act wanting to go out and play an old classic rock song. But what cracks me up is that they all want to be Jimmy Buffett. I can’t figure that out.
They say that truth is the first casualty of war. But there is another casualty as well: trust. As conflict escalates, trust between people and political leaders crumbles away as surely as night follows day.
To me, every hour of the day and night is an unspeakably perfect miracle.
You look at driving down the road, night after night, tryin’ to make a town, getting $25 – that’s hard times. It’s our duty to make it good times for the fans that pay their money to see us perform each and every night.
If you haven’t forgiven someone, it does not hurt that person. They’re sleeping at night. You’re holding onto that, and all the damage is being done to you internally.
I married a German. Every night I dress up as Poland and he invades me.
For ‘A Little Night Music,’ I did try to get little bit more beefed up for that because I thought that would help me carry myself around the stage in that character.
One night, militia tried to break into our home, and the exterior was riddled with bullets.
The last thing I want to come home to on Monday night after work is a mess.
I’ll take any excuse to have a get-together. For me, it’s all about the everyday occasions, whether it’s popping champagne to toast good weather, inviting the girls for brunch to rehash a night out, or just making snacks and watching a movie.
For myself, anyway, I think that recurring has been such a gift, because I’ve been able to work on a lot of shows that I’ve really had a lot of respect for before I went in, shows like ‘Friday Night Lights’ and ‘Nip/Tuck,’ for example.
Man, coaching is a hard job, and it requires a lot of time… I hear stories from coaches who tell me that players call them in the middle of the night not knowing where they parked their car.
One thing I’m working on is an episodic web series titled ‘One Warm Night.’ It’s a kinda crazy, quirky series, filled with a lot of misfits, oddballs… ninjas.
I have a night job driving tractors on biomass farms.
Worldly faces never look so worldly as at a funeral. They have the same effect of grating incongruity as the sound of a coarse voice breaking the solemn silence of night.
Buonaparte has often made his boast that our fleet would be worn out by keeping the sea and that his was kept in order and increasing by staying in port; but know he finds, I fancy, if Emperors hear the truth, that his fleet suffers more in a night than ours in one year.
Bleak Night’ presented my first lead role in a long feature.
Don’t sleep too much. If you sleep three hours less each night for a year, you will have an extra month and a half to succeed in.
Day and night cannot dwell together. The Red Man has ever fled the approach of the White Man, as the morning mist flees before the morning sun.
My earliest realization of the stir of national life was the torch parade in the Garfield campaign. On that occasion, I was not only allowed out that night, but I saw the lamps being filled and lighted.
One night Roger was in a foul mood and he threw his entire bloody drumset across the stage. The thing only just missed me – I might have been killed.
I keep track of my kids sometimes with social media. I have to check TMZ every morning to see what’s going on, and then at night, I go to bed with Snapchat.
When you’re a restaurant critic, you’re not home at night, so breakfast became really important for us.
I did a lot of things that I regretted and I certainly paid for my mistakes. You have to go and ask for forgiveness and it wasn’t until I really started doing good and doing right, by other people as well as myself, that I really started to feel that guilt go away. So I don’t have a problem going to sleep at night.
You just stay the course, and do what it is that you do, and grow while you’re doing it. Eventually it will either come full circle, or at least you’ll go to bed at night happy.
I don’t think my life would be significantly poorer if I don’t impersonate Nick Clegg. Life is short enough without sitting up night after night listening to tapes of him.
I have glaucoma, so use eye drops both morning and night.
The first real concert, other than going with my dad to see Three Dog Night, was Smashing Pumpkins and Garbage. I was fourteen or fifteen. I liked Shirley Manson because she reminded me of Annie Lennox. They both have these deep, sexy, powerful alto voices.
The night before Tilbury, the Cordon Bleu gourmet dinner turned out Cordon Brown. Six out of ten to the chef for trying and ten out of ten to us for eating it.
‘Until Friday Night’ is the first book in my new young adult series, ‘The Field Party.’
I lose sleep at night wondering whether we are intelligent enough to figure out the universe. I don’t know.
You never have to change anything you got up in the middle of the night to write.
When I got into college, I found what ultimately became my life’s work. I couldn’t sleep at night, I was so excited about it. So I’m attracted to people who play at that level. They actually want to play in their professional life.
Growing up in Texas and Oklahoma, Ben Johnson was more famous than John Wayne to some of us. I knew him. I worked with him on a low budget film years ago, and we’d sit around at night while waiting for a shot.
Depending upon my activities, I sleep between five and ten hours every night. I sleep in an extra-wide single bed, and I use only one heavy down comforter over me, summer or winter. I have never been able to wear pajamas or creepy nightgowns; they disturb my sleep.
I love cereal. I eat several bowls a day, mostly a few late at night.
I’m guilty of eating Magnum bars before I go to sleep at night.
Nighttime frequently increases alertness, and each mission should consider the ramifications of a night assault. Several of the most successful special operations were conducted in daytime and achieved a high degree of surprise.
You find how you feel your best, whether you feel better when you’re eating gluten-free or whatever it is. I feel better when I eat a burger every other night.
All work is a process of failure. Every single thing I write, I look at it and go, ‘Do better. That’s not good enough. Do better.’ And so, that keeps me up at night.
When I moved to New York, I was waiting tables, painting in the daytime and working at night, and I felt it was possible to find a balance and just about get by.
After you do a joke a few times, you have material that you know works. Although sometimes I have a joke that has worked a bunch of times, and then one night it’ll flop.
Sleeping at night is not a specialty of entrepreneurs. The entrepreneur who is sleeping soundly, something bad is happening to that person; they just don’t know it’s happening yet.
They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.
I read the book of Job last night, I don’t think God comes out well in it.
Playing Risk – it’s a perfect night before you go to bed.
Look out into the universe and contemplate the glory of God. Observe the stars, millions of them, twinkling in the night sky, all with a message of unity, part of the very nature of God.
I like to be home on a Friday night. I don’t go out. I don’t go to clubs. It’s not my thing. I sit at home with my glass of wine and watch hours of reality TV.
I was released by Chelsea at 14 years old. I remember it, a Tuesday night. On the Wednesday, I was training with Fulham, five minutes from my house, and then on the Thursday, I was training with West Ham. After one session at both clubs, they both wanted me.
At night, when the sky is full of stars and the sea is still you get the wonderful sensation that you are floating in space.
Late night television is ready for someone like me… standards have gone to an all-time low.
There is a part of me that will forever want to be walking under autumn leaves, carrying a briefcase containing the works of Shakespeare and Yeats and a portable chess set. I will pass an old tree under which once on a summer night I lay on the grass with a fragrant young woman and we quoted e.e. cummings back and forth.
I recall the night that President McKinley died. I was working at the time at a theatre in St. Louis. The oppressive feeling was in the air. I could not make the people laugh.
Not the torturer will scare me, nor the body’s final fall, nor the barrels of death’s rifles, nor the shadows on the wall, nor the night when to the ground the last dim star of pain, is hurled but the blind indifference of a merciless, unfeeling world.
From the night, his solitude, the poet finds day and starts a diary that is lethal to the inert. The dark landscape yields a dialogue.
Last night I dreamt I ate a ten pound marshmallow. When I woke up the pillow was gone.
I prefer a long day of starting in the morning over working late into the night.
The problem with marriage is that it ends every night after making love, and it must be rebuilt every morning before breakfast.
This is just what I have thought when I have seen slaves at work – they seem to go through the motions of labor without putting strength into them. They keep their powers in reserve for their own use at night, perhaps.
I’ve always loved flowers, as a little girl I’d collect flower objects and little flower books. Now I love flowers on my night table and on my desk.
When I hit my 20s, I struggled to make it. I got married at 19, and my daughter, Je’Niece, was born a year later. I worked blue collar jobs during the day and comedy clubs at night, and I was earning about $25 a year doing stand-up.
President Bush spent last night calling world leaders to support the war with Iraq and it is sad when the most powerful man on earth is yelling, ‘I know you’re there, pick up, pick up.
I learned never to empty the well of my writing, but always to stop when there was still something there in the deep part of the well, and let it refill at night from the springs that fed it.
Open your refrigerator door, and you summon forth more light than the total amount enjoyed by most households in the 18th century. The world at night, for much of history, was a very dark place indeed.
It is a common experience that a problem difficult at night is resolved in the morning after the committee of sleep has worked on it.
Our religion is the traditions of our ancestors – the dreams of our old men, given them in solemn hours of the night by the Great Spirit; and the visions of our sachems, and is written in the hearts of our people.
When I went to college, I did clothing and textiles. It really wasn’t until I moved to New York, my second night in, I did stand-up. I took a wild left turn, and instead of going back and finishing school at FIT, I started doing stand-up and acting.
Whether it’s eight o’clock in the morning or eight o’clock at night, I always try to greet others before they have a chance to speak to me.
Dying is a wild night and a new road.
Television won’t be able to hold on to any market it captures after the first six months. People will soon get tired of staring at a plywood box every night.
I was around when there was only one channel and when that second channel arrived, it came with the wonderful world of Disney on a Sunday night. We would drop our bicycles and run home to see it, it was just pure escapism.
Nobody wants to make me a rich man. In fact, most people want to make me a very poor man. I can guarantee some people fantasize at night about how poor they can make me.
I have a lot of respect for PM Narendra Modi, as he works hard day and night and doesn’t sleep more than 4 hours. So I am thinking of gifting him chewing gum, as he will chew that and will take rest and take care of his health.
There are those who love to get dirty and fix things. They drink coffee at dawn, beer after work. And those who stay clean, just appreciate things. At breakfast they have milk and juice at night. There are those who do both, they drink tea.
I’ve become very interested in the spectrum of political discourse as seen on the cable news channels that are conveniently right in a row on my cable provider’s dial. I can flip from Fox to CNN to HLN to MSNBC, and I find myself at night flipping it back and forth through them, and it’s something of an addiction.
I want to make movies that pierce people’s hearts and touch them in some way, even if it’s just for the night while they’re in the cinema; in that moment, I want to bring actual tears to their eyes and goosebumps to their skin.
The night of Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao. I woke up that morning with a very, very bad case of laryngitis and couldn’t speak at all. I had no voice. And I was able, just by having chicken soup and barley and salt water, to have just enough for that one fight.
I had to learn to forgive. I couldn’t sleep at night. I got ulcers. I had to let go, to let God deal with it. No one wants to be mad in their own house. I didn’t want to be angry my whole life. It takes so much energy out of you to be mean.
‘Little Night’ comes from deep in my heart, and tells about the lengths people will go for love.
Men know not the gold which lies in the mine of Christ Jesus, or surely they would dig in it night and day. They have not yet discovered the pearl of great price, or they would have sold their all to buy the field wherein it lies.
My parents were very, very good about not separating us as kids from their adult friends. So on any given night, we’d have, like, this kind of freak show – artists and art dealers coming over. And these are the people I feel like I learned from.
To me, the most romantic gesture is a quiet night with my girl. I like to cook for her. I’m a meat eater and a griller – I do steaks, I do chicken, I do fish. I have a broad palate!
I’m a total Twihard. I read all the books and saw every movie on opening night with my mom.
The ‘Day Shift’ songs are things that would unfold during the daytime. ‘Night Shift’ is what would unfold during the nighttime. So, that’s how I put that whole thing together. I did both all on one album budget.
If Confucius wasn’t born, the long night would have no bright lamp.
I read and walked for miles at night along the beach, writing bad blank verse and searching endlessly for someone wonderful who would step out of the darkness and change my life. It never crossed my mind that that person could be me.
I’ve had so many cool moments on ‘Monday Night Raw.’
With me, nothing goes right. My psychiatrist said my wife and I should have sex every night. Now, we’ll never see each other!
I was on stage last night, and I gave a medical report about Donald Trump. I said he was hospitalized for an attack of modesty.
Black people lived right by the railroad tracks, and the train would shake their houses at night. I would hear it as a boy, and I thought: I’m gonna make a song that sounds like that.
Moisturizing every night is important. When you’re 50 or 60, it’s going to show if you don’t take care of it. You have to prepare when you’re young, so you still have that healthy, glowing skin when you’re 60 or 70.
I like to have glasses for day and night.
I’m Jewish, but not overly religious, and have certainly never formally observed the Fourth Commandment, other than via the tradition of wearing white on Friday nights at summer camp, which never seemed to dovetail with the fact that Fridays were also the night for grape juice.
You cannot look up at the night sky on the Planet Earth and not wonder what it’s like to be up there amongst the stars. And I always look up at the moon and see it as the single most romantic place within the cosmos.
After having supplied myself with provisions from Mr. Travis’s, I scratched a hole under a pile of fence rails in a field, where I concealed myself for six weeks, never leaving my hiding place but for a few minutes in the dead of night to get water, which was very near.
Before I had kids, I was out every night of the week.
I remember driving the tractor on our farm, and Tim McGraw would be on the radio. I’d find myself walking out of class, singing his songs. And then Tim ended up playing my father in ‘Friday Night Lights.’ It was surreal.
Dread of night. Dread of not-night.
I saved a girl from being attacked last night. I controlled myself.
My evening really begins when I take a long, hot bath. I light a candle, and I turn on the news and try to catch up. It’s when I can breathe from the day to the night, and that means a lot to me.
All music is escapism for me, but I like the way that, on a good night, that sense of escapism can be shared.
I spent the night on a sliver of rock high up on the east face of Long’s Peak, climbing with Tom Frost, and slept at the icy feet of the Dru, listening to the lightning crack above me and the thunder roll down. I only did it to write about it. I would never go up on the Grotto Wall for fun.
It really doesn’t matter who I fight. It’s about me putting on a good performance and just looking good overall that night.
Stand-up comedy is something that you have to strive to do, multiple times a night, every night, to be good.
‘Who are we?’ And to me that’s the essential question that’s always been in science fiction. A lot of science fiction stories are – at their very best – evocations of that question. When we look up at the night sky and wonder, ‘Is there anyone else out there?’ we’re also asking who we are we in relation to them.
Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow.
Women’s tennis? I think it stinks. They hit the ball back and forth, have a lot of nice volleys, and you can see some pretty legs. But it’s night and day compared to men’s tennis.
The Grateful Dead played for three hours on a given night, plus sound check.
’25th Hour,’ like a lot of my films, takes place in New York City. I’ve been very fortunate to make films in the city that I live. I mean, it’s great going home at night instead of being on location.
The streets were dark with something more than night.
I like a spirituality with a God that knows how to drive a car, that knows how to take his girl to the dance club, dance all night, have a little drink, kiss the kid when they come back in and go to sleep. God doesn’t need a chauffeur – he needs to drive himself.
My father was a tailor. He worked from seven o’clock in the morning until seven at night. At least when he got home, my mother always cooked him a very good dinner. Lots of potatoes, I remember; he used to knock them down like a dose of salts. He needed it, after a 12-hour day.
Last night I neglected to mention something that bears repeating.
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn’t work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.
No man knows till he has suffered from the night how sweet and dear to his heart and eye the morning can be.
I think ‘Saturday Night Live’, starting in the 1970s, really gave women an outlet to be funny. A lot of those women went on to have film careers, from Kristen Wiig now to Tina Fey and Gilda Radner.
You create a blueprint of your best performance, and you’re happiest the night you surpass that blueprint. That won’t happen that often, but it will happen. It’s like sculpting: you keep refining. When you have a piece that is yours, that is just you, that becomes obsessive; you think about it all the time.
I prefer face-to-face conversation as opposed to texting. You need to go out of your way to spend good time with one another; you need to have a date night. Whether you have kids or a career or whatever, for a relationship to thrive, it’s about making time for each other.
Prepare for death, if here at night you roam, and sign your will before you sup from home.
There are a lot of things I can take, and a few that I can’t. What I can’t take is when my older brother, who’s everything that I want to be, starts losing faith in things. I saw that look in your eyes last night. I don’t ever want to see that look in your eyes again.
The first thing I do every day when I wake up is thank God for letting me make it through the night and giving me another day of life – just because sometimes I wake up, and I cannot believe I’m doing what I’m doing. I just thank Him. I don’t know how I deserve it, but it’s completely because of Him.
There is only one thing people like that is good for them; a good night’s sleep.
I prayed like a man walking in a forest at night, feeling his way with his hands, at each step fearing to fall into pure bottomlessness forever. Prayer is like lying awake at night, afraid, with your head under the cover, hearing only the beating of your own heart.
Things are as they are. Looking out into it the universe at night, we make no comparisons between right and wrong stars, nor between well and badly arranged constellations.
Wearing sunglasses at night hurts your eyes after a while.
I had dreams of conehead aliens when I was little. Before ‘Saturday Night Live’ did it. And then they came out with them, and I went on to be a glorified extra in the movie. When everyone else was laughing, I was scared.
Instead of going out, I’m trying to encourage people to have a memorable experience in their own home. We call it ‘Delicioso Night In.’ I invite the people I care about the most. Then, when I get a lot of people together, I like to have finger foods.
No place is boring, if you’ve had a good night’s sleep and have a pocket full of unexposed film.
I understand entertaining. You want people to walk out saying, ‘I spent a night with interesting people.’
One night all the James Brown band was playing on stage and I look in the back and I could see Mick Jagger and Keith Richards trying to get in the club and they couldn’t get in cause it was to crowded.
I told Celine Dion not to record that ‘Titanic’ song. That’s about as big as you can get. ‘Flashdance?’ I thought, ‘Welder by day, disco dancer by night – who wants to see that?’
Does the road wind up-hill all the way? Yes, to the very end. Will the day’s journey take the whole long day? From morn to night, my friend.
Time flies so quick. I remember my second year in business when Bullocks Wilshire did a whole window of my white dresses. I was so excited, I went there at night and took pictures.
Every night when I go out on stage, there’s always one nagging fear in the back of my mind. I’m always afraid that somewhere out there, there is one person in the audience that I’m not going to offend!
I always thought Johnny Carson was just brilliant, and I used to watch him and all the comics that would be on the show every night – and I’d dream about it being me.
I’m a minimalist Jew, but on Friday night, I celebrate Shabbat. At sundown, we light candles, say the blessing, and I don’t turn on my computer for 24 hours.
To my ears, jazz sounds better in warm weather and after the sun has gone down. While I will listen to some of my favorite jazz records in cooler weather, it’s the warmer nights that really make them come alive. Something about those sounds and the heat of the night really makes it happen for me.
