Philip Rivers, I think he’s pretty good.
To me Prince Philip was a hero and a role model – and a friend.
In 1995, I founded The Molecular Sciences Institute with a gift from the Philip Morris Company where I hoped that we could create an environment where young people could pursue science in an atmosphere of harmonious purpose and high intellectual challenge.
I’m trying to use people like Meredith Monk and Philip Glass and Terry Riley as the backing tracks for new pop songs. It’s really hard trying to use the format and write a pop song on top of avant-garde music, so we’ll see. It could be cool, or it could totally flop.
The name of the show was ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,’ not ‘Philip and Viv of Bel-Air.’ If you didn’t want to walk away from the best job in the world over a petty issue, you accepted the way it was.

I’ve got a better background than anyone else who married into the royal family since the war, excepting Prince Philip.
In terms of pure acting, my role model has always been Philip Seymour Hoffman; I really always loved what he did. I love what Mark Ruffalo does. When I was younger, I liked Cate Blanchett a lot. These are all actors who are given stories and allowed to carry the whole story.
Prince Philip prides himself on being a realist. He knows he is not going to live for ever.
Reality, by itself, becomes a story by Philip K. Dick.
I loved literary science fiction. In fact, as a kid, when I was reading science fiction, I thought ‘I can’t wait for the future when the special effects are good’ to represent what was in these books by Arthur C. Clarke, Alfred Bester, Philip K. Dick, J.G. Ballard, Jack Vance.
I was lucky enough to know Prince Philip in his prime – the most dynamic man I have ever met. And I was privileged to know him almost to the end.
There are some novelists who can get away with writing about sex – Philip Roth, Ian McEwan – but they are rare.
A room containing Philip Roth, I have noticed, begins hilariously to whirl and pulse with a mix of rebelliousness and constriction that I take to be Oedipal.
I always wanted to be an actor, but my top three favorite actors of all time are Al Pacino, James Dean and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
We don’t often look into these unpleasant details of our great struggle. We all prefer to think that every man who wore the blue or gray was a Philip Sidney at heart.

Guys like Philip Seymour Hoffman or Sam Rockwell are the guys I look up to and have the kind of career I’d like to emulate.
I was completely dumbfounded because not only am I a huge fan of David Simon, but I’m a huge fan of Philip Roth.
I have a particular interest in corporations that give themselves a cultural aura and are in other areas suspect. Philip Morris presents itself in New York as the lover of culture while it turns out that if you look behind the scenes, it is also a prime funder of Jesse Helms, someone who is very hostile to the arts.

I was quite pleased that Prince Philip didn’t say anything like, I hate queers! He was quite well behaved.
I love the Kerastase Hair Oils and the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer. They’re great for making my hair really soft, but to be honest, any cheap conditioner works. Just leave it on and let it soak in, and it really helps, whatever you use.
I’ve never seen anyone – and I’ve had the opportunity to work with some really terrific actors in my time – but Philip Seymour Hoffman is definitely the best I ever had the opportunity to work with.
I’ve always been a big fan of Philip K. Dick; I love his work. There’s a returning theme of identity and the fragility of our identity. Even when we are looking at what we think is a stark reality, it might actually be something completely different.
My father Philip was an actor and appeared in everything from ‘The Onedin Line’ to ‘Hedda Gabler’ with Dame Diana Rigg.
Prince Philip had formally ‘retired’ in the summer of 2017, a couple of months after his 96th birthday, because the Queen encouraged him to do so. She wanted to stop him ‘pushing himself all the time’. She had become anxious about him.
I, Philip Kearny, an old soldier, enter my solemn protest against this order for retreat.
There was never any question of Prince Philip’s four sisters being invited to his wedding to Princess Elizabeth. King George decided their connection to Nazi Germany was still too shaming.
Philip Larkin has a tough honesty and sense of humor that I find irresistible, as a contemporary poet.
The next time a news outlet complains about the state of our political rhetoric or the uninformed U.S. voter, we should promptly point them to the video of Ashley Parker raucous in a Polish cemetery or Philip Rucker’s diatribes on party invitations.
I was enamored of New York City intellectual life and was really into Philip Roth because I was raised by self-loathing Midwesterners who were from southern Illinois, who felt like fish out of water when they came to the East Coast when I was a kid.
If the Conservative party hasn’t got room for Ken Clarke and Philip Hammond and 19 others, there is also a message there to millions of people who vote Conservative, that it’s not a party for them. If you go down a divisive route, the scars will be very deep.
When I was starting out, I thought I would go into comedy and there would be a mentor, like the Philip Seymour Hoffman character in ‘Almost Famous,’ in my life, and there just wasn’t. It was really frustrating for me because I desired that so much.
It was really great to be part of the Philip Roth story as a woman in a very complete way.
I didn’t speak English until I was ten, when Philip Burton, the schoolmaster who became my guardian, took me under his wing.
Now, I think perhaps I got it wrong over Prince Philip. I think he loves pretty women, and he likes flirting, but I’m not sure how important actual sex is to him, put it that way.
Philip Roth has been a huge influence on me. The early books I read in my teens and twenties.
I like Philip Larkin an awful lot; I really like his view on life, and I really connect to it.
To my mind, the best SF addresses itself to problems of the here and now, or even to problems which have never been solved and never will be solved – I’m thinking of Philip K. Dick’s work here, dealing with questions of reality, for example.
Prince Philip protected the Queen and made her laugh.
I love ‘Capote.’ Huge fan of Philip Seymour Hoffman; if he’s not my all-time favorite actor he’s definitely in my top five. I just love him so much.
I use the Philip Kingsley range of shampoos, and they’ve got a great elasticiser, which is fantastic. I wrap my hair in cling film and put that on.
A good choreographer is one that’s going to collaborate, teach, guide – everything. The wonderful thing on ‘Brotherhood of the Wolf’ was that we had Philip Kwok – he choreographed John Woo’s ‘Hard Boiled,’ and in the ’70s, he was a martial arts actor, stunt man, fighter, choreographer in Hong Kong.
Prince Philip’s principal role since 1952 has been to support the Queen. Alongside that, he has created his own working life as founder, fellow, patron, president, chairman, or member of at least 837 organizations – as well as a Colonel or Colonel-in-Chief, Field Marshal, Admiral, Air Commodore 42 times over.
Among contemporaries, I hugely admire Alice Munro, our Chekhov, Saul Bellow, Philip Roth, and John Updike, American masters all. I also believe that the voice of Gordon Lish is astoundingly original and sorrowful.
He caressed my backside. I had heard that he was famous for his ‘admiration’ of the ladies, but I didn’t expect him to be handling my booty. As handsome as Prince Philip is, I wasn’t sure if he was making a pass or just exercising some royal rights to squeeze the foreigners.
A couple of my favorite actors are Don Cheadle, Jeffrey Wright, and, may he rest in peace, Philip Seymour Hoffman. I’ve had an opportunity to see all of them onscreen and onstage.
My heroes are Bill Murray and Dustin Hoffman. Those are the two actors that both do comedies and dramas, seamlessly. Also John C. Reilly and Philip Seymour Hoffman. They’re all just great actors, neither comedic nor dramatic. They’re just great actors.
I’ve met Prince Charles and Prince Philip.
The Queen has well-informed opinions of many of her bishops and likes those who are straightforward and intelligent. Both she and Prince Philip believe Christianity is as much about forgiveness as morality.
In science fiction, basic doubts featured prominently in the worlds of Philip K. Dick. I knew Phil for 25 years, and he was always getting onto me, a scientist. He was a great fan of quantum uncertainty, epistemology in science, the lot.
I think it’s really difficult for a young team to beat an experienced quarterback like Philip Rivers twice in one season.
There must be a dozen films now based on Philip K. Dick novels or stories, far more than any other published science fiction writer. He’s sort of become the go-to guy for weird science fiction notions.
I’m a huge fan of Philip K. Dick.
Throughout his work, Philip Levine’s most powerful commitment has been to the failed and lost, the marginal, the unloved, the unwanted.
Clipping is a very specific, concept-y thing. We have all these rules: we don’t sample drums. We create all our own sounds. I don’t speak in the first person. We come from a background of experimental music like John Cage… Philip Glass.
