Oddly Quotes

The hour or so I spent with the ninety-year-old David Attenborough was one of the most beatific of my life. An oddly religious term, I know, for a man who doesn’t have much truck with religion, but it was the serenity of that time that will stay with me most.
Emily Maitlis
All my plays have these titles that are oddly tricky. I like that something can look like one thing but mean two different things. Language is really unstable in that way.
Branden Jacobs-Jenkins
When we began working on Parque Pumalin, rumours flew that we were establishing a nuclear waste site for the United States or, oddly for Episcopalians, which we both are, setting up a Jewish state. It would be funny if these theories weren’t being taken very seriously.
Douglas Tompkins
I love having a big family. I think it’s easier, oddly, in some ways, having three children as opposed to one.
Patrick Dempsey
I experienced a lot of loss after his death. I lost my city because of all the paparazzi descending upon us. I actually lost my journal during that time, oddly enough. I literally couldn’t hold on to anything.
Michelle Williams
I’m oddly comfortable in the ring.
Mustafa Ali
Analysis brings no curative powers in its train; it merely makes us conscious of the existence of an evil, which, oddly enough, is consciousness.
Henry Miller
One of my key realizations about happiness, and a point oddly under-emphasized by positive psychologists, given its emphasis in popular culture, is that outer order contributes to inner calm. More than it should.
Gretchen Rubin
I’m a bit of a coward, and lazy, oddly enough.
Stephen Fry
I think comedy’s harder to pull off on the screen than on the stage, anyway. Tragedy is easier on the screen… oddly enough.
Sam Shepard
With Boris Johnson, you don’t think of him as a politician, oddly. You think of him as a media personality because he’s a comic character. He’s basically Homer Simpson. That makes him strangely bullet-proof.
Charlie Brooker
It’s arguing, in a very good and positive way. It’s sort of sitting down and pulling an argument apart. I think that’s a very oddly Jewish thing. And it’s the chaos of family and a slight sort of cosy messiness of it all.
Emily Maitlis
I have really bad luck with my thumbs. It plagues me, actually. It drives me crazy! Both of them are very oddly shaped.
Kristen Stewart
Now I almost overly embrace how weird I am, how I look and how oddly camp I am. It’s almost too honest for me because I harboured ambitions to be quite a cool, good-looking guy.
Michael McIntyre
I do not like attention. Oddly enough, I do everything I can to avoid it.
Tituss Burgess
Mesh networking is an old idea. Oddly enough, the low-cost XO Laptop built by the ‘One Laptop Per Child’ organization – the so-called $100 laptop – was designed with built-in mesh networking. The idea with the XO machine was that many kids using those laptops would be out in rural areas without reliable Internet access.
Daniel Lyons
Although my life is far from perfect, the irony is that in a divorced parent’s custody schedule – with days on and days off – instead of like it was before, when I felt ragged and still oddly guilty all the time, now I feel guilty but not ragged.
Sandra Tsing Loh
I’m usually cast by people who are oddly goofy.
Martin Landau

Oddly, I’d been to most of the locations where I started photographing slavery many times before. I even considered some of them homes-away-from-home. But there can be dark corners in familiar places.
Lisa Kristine
What I love about comedy is that we’re this group of weirdos, and the only language that matters is, ‘Are you funny?’ And it really is this oddly cool American idea where comedy’s the marketplace of ideas. May the best idea win.
Hasan Minhaj
Oddly enough, my favorite genre is not fiction. I’m attracted by primary sources that are relevant to historical questions of interest to me, by famous old books on philosophy or theology that I want to see with my own eyes, by essays on contemporary science, by the literatures of antiquity.
Marilynne Robinson
Oddly enough, even though our show is structured around women, our target audience is women, I get more calls from men every night than women.
Americans will not buy irregular-looking or oddly shaped vegetables!
Alex Guarnaschelli
Oddly, the anti-heroes of both ‘The Chill’ and veteran comics writer Peter Milligan’s ‘The Bronx Kill’ share a first name, though their occupations and plights couldn’t be any more different.
Sarah Weinman
When you become successful on the level that Fleetwood Mac did, it gives you financial freedom, which should allow you to follow your impulses. But oddly enough, they become much harder to follow.
Lindsey Buckingham

Hanya Yanagihara
I do think, oddly, that a comedic actor has a better chance of pulling off a dramatic role than a great dramatic actor has of being able to pull off a highly comedic role.
Lizzy Caplan
As an actor, you live a little bit of a cloistered life. It’s a lonely life. You oddly, strangely find yourself all alone, quite often, with a lot of time to think.
Melissa Leo
And now oddly I’m getting sexier parts than I’ve ever gotten.
Patricia Clarkson
After all, film is so porous, and to my mind, so oddly occult, that I think that film itself absorbs odd energies like a living skin.
Barbara Steele
I’ve done about six comedies. Oddly enough, the script came to me from one of the guys in Platoon.
Tom Berenger

Jonathan Pryce
Oddly, I feel more protected when I write in Italian, even though I’m also more exposed.
Jhumpa Lahiri
Oddly, when I started to make the record, I wasn’t aware I was making a record. I just was sort of disgusted with the whole thing and sequestered myself in the basement and started playing the piano just for something to do.
Paul Westerberg
Well, the wonderful thing about making movies, oddly enough, is that they’re sort of highly motivated graduate studies in one or another field.
Sydney Pollack
More than anything, falling in love causes a certain female thing in a man to manifest, oddly enough.
Sam Shepard
I’ve been shocked by film actors – 25 and under – having such confidence and cockiness to rewrite a scene. My background is more about the director being in control. It’s all about yielding. It’s an oddly submissive relationship in which you’re moulded, Pygmalion-style.
Anne-Marie Duff
Oddly, I believe that emotional proximity we feel to close loved ones makes it hard to be honest with them about feelings of depression.
Andy Dunn
I’m a Progressive. Much in the same way our founding fathers – who, oddly enough, wouldn’t get elected today – were Progressives.
Will Ferrell
There were points in my life where I felt oddly irresistible to women. I’m not in that state now and that makes me sad.
Jack Nicholson
Oddly enough, George Pal always began and ended something with The Bible. All his pictures had a religious undertone. God was always there, protecting us.
Ann Robinson
I guess I’m odd-looking. I’m skinny. But I’m not only skinny – I’m oddly shaped.
Andy Dick
Oddly enough, I find it quite engaging to be working with a female when I’m directing. It’s kind of interesting.
Ridley Scott
Here you have an incredibly ambitious, accomplished woman who comes up against some of the same problems that women in power come up against today. Cleopatra plays an oddly pivotal role in world history as well; in her lifetime, Alexandria is the center of the universe, Rome is still a backwater.
Stacy Schiff
Oddly enough, my grandfather probably had more of an influence on me than my father.
Jamie Wyeth
You write about what you know. It makes everything easier, and also more truthful. In this case, I grew up in Oklahoma, and I grew up in the Cherokee Nation and I’m a member of the Cherokee Tribe. Oddly enough, I know a lot about robots and Oklahoma, and so that’s what comes out in my writing.
Daniel H. Wilson
Humor is perhaps a sense of intellectual perspective: an awareness that some things are really important, others not; and that the two kinds are most oddly jumbled in everyday affairs.
Christopher Morley
As a songwriter, oddly enough, my influences were people like Bob Dylan, The Velvet Underground, and Buddy Holly. Some psychedelic stuff, too.
Ric Ocasek
Oddly, I think that a lot of the haters of EDM and DJs are actually within the world of electronic music.
Max Joseph
Besides Spiderman and Batman, ‘The Flash’ has, hands down, the best villains. You could do a TV show about The Rogues, and there’s enough depth and interest and oddly honor amongst those characters that I think people will watch that show.
Andrew Kreisberg
Trump was able to convey – oddly enough a message from a billionaire who lives in Manhattan – a genuine concern for people who felt kind of left off, who felt offended by all the political correctness they see around them.
Mitch McConnell
When you’re scared, you’re still hanging on to life. When you’re ready to die, you let it go. A sort of emptying out occurs, a giving up on the world that seems oddly familiar even if you’ve never done it before.
Sebastian Junger
Reality does not easily give up meaning; it’s the biographer’s job to clobber it into submission. You’re meant not only to tame it but to extract substance, to identify cause and axiomatic effect. You subsist on the tactical omissions, the hollow words, the oddly unconnected dots.
Stacy Schiff
Anything that activates the joy center in the brain makes you happy, and therefore protects you. Oddly enough, that’s what they do in ‘Harry Potter’: The nurse gives the kids chocolates when they’ve been near the Dementors!
Jane Siberry
Paris, as always, is swarming with Americans, and these days, it’s also swarming with hamburgers. Oddly, though, it’s not typically the Americans who are pursuing the perfect burger on the perfect bun with the obligatory side of perfect coleslaw; the Americans are pursuing the perfect blanquette de veau.
Robert Gottlieb
Rock ‘n’ roll is not unlike love. You find it oddly strangely comforting that no matter how old you get, when it comes to matters of the heart, you’re always 15 inside.
Gord Downie
Oddly, I do have a problem with authority. I find it very difficult to knuckle down and follow rules. Which are the classic symptoms of someone who has a troubled relationship with their father. And yet, I never had a problem with my father.
Toby Young
Los Angeles was an impression of failure, of disappointment, of despair, and of oddly makeshift lives. This is California? I thought.
Joseph Barbera
Truth-tellers who expect others to believe them tend to speak naturally and un-self-consciously. But if they don’t expect to be believed, they may try too hard to seem honest. Unfortunately, the result makes them sound less believable. Obviously, then, not every oddly phrased statement is a lie.
Pamela Meyer
Carrying a movie is both a great privilege, it’s a great opportunity, but it can be a great pressure, and sometimes that can make people behave very oddly.
Kenneth Branagh
I used to have a theory in my mind that if no serious move had happened before I was 38 – not 40, oddly – then I would move into management or something. Fortunately, I was offered ‘The Frost Report’ when I was 37, so that was a close thing, too.
Ronnie Corbett
Oddly, I’m not a huge fan of Brisbane in Australia. I can’t quite put my finger on why – it just seemed to lack verve, and I don’t have any great desire to go back.
Christopher Timothy
Oddly enough, I have really bad stage fright – getting up in front of people. And I made a living going on live television.
Bill Hader
Oddly, a search for ‘jeggings’ in my email inbox shows that my first exposure to the phenomenon came from – wait for it – Mike Allen of ‘Politico,’ who helpfully explained the concept on December 20, 2009.
Rachel Sklar
I have, oddly, two ski houses – trying to sell one.
Nick Hanauer
I don’t speak Spanish, and I get so much crap for it. Oddly enough, it was the first language I learned, but somehow I lost it throughout the years. I can understand pieces of it, but I don’t speak it. I need to speak it. I want to teach my kids Spanish.
Ryan Guzman
Oddly enough you’d think, now that I wasn’t training professionally, I’d be able to enjoy a lie-in at the weekend, but I actually slept more when I was competing because I was so tired.
Victoria Pendleton
I learn new things about what ‘The Room’ does wrong or oddly every time I see it with a crowd.
Greg Sestero
I like the Victory rolls, beehive, pompadour – all of that stuff. It’s just cool. And actually, with ethnic hair, oddly enough, it works so well because I don’t have to tease my hair to get body.
Andra Day
My first inkling of what the Commonwealth might really mean came only when I escaped the oddly British-tinged Asia I had known and went to live in the Philippines.
Romesh Gunesekera
Oddly enough, MS has made my life so much better than it was before. I now appreciate what I have and I am not running around like a rat in a maze.
Teri Garr
Oddly enough, I’m not a particularly judgmental person. I just don’t have a lot of filtering when I’m in ‘tiger mother’ mode. I say what comes into my head.
Amy Chua
I got my first kiss while watching ‘Titanic’, oddly enough, so I think I was more focused on that than the actual movie.
Cristin Milioti
I think we have a long way to go in the entertainment industry, particularly in movies, but I feel like in television, there’s somebody is finally saying, ‘Hey, women have stories to tell, and oddly enough, women want to hear them.’
Miriam Shor
When you’re under stress as a human being, you behave oddly and your relationships with people become strained.
Viggo Mortensen
