I think Raymond is very honest about human relationships.
Patricia Heaton
Right after ‘Raymond’ I had a world-is-my-oyster attitude, but I found out I don’t like oysters. I had this existential emptiness. ‘What is my purpose? Who am I?’ I had a big identity crisis.
Ray Romano
I like Raymond Carver’s poetry a lot.
Gord Downie
Down the years, I have always enjoyed playing Raymond van Barneveld. There is always a frisson of excitement in the air, an edge to the contest that makes the sap rise, but it stops short of pure enmity.
Phil Taylor
Late summer is perfect for classic mysteries – think of Raymond Chandler’s hot Santa Anas and Agatha Christie’s Mediterranean resorts – while big ambitious works of nonfiction are best approached in September and early October, when we still feel energetic and the grass no longer needs to be cut.
Michael Dirda
It’s not a terribly original thing to say, but I love Raymond Carver. For one thing, he’s fun to read out loud.
Ira Glass
Raymond Chandler I love a lot, and the Austrian writer Thomas Bernhard. I really love his voice.
Steve Toltz
I knew Dave Raymond, who was the original Phillie Phanatic.
Christopher Guest
I’m going to get hated for saying this, but honestly, fantasy is easy to write because you can do anything. It’s like when Raymond Chandler brings in a bloke with a gun when he’s stuck – in fantasy, up pops a wizard, and off we go.
Mal Peet
Boy, we’ll get Raymond out and we won’t go hungry anymore.
Bonnie Parker
Raymond Floyd. The man knows how to control situations. He was experienced. He didn’t let me get overly excited; he kept me in check. It allowed me to free myself up, and I played really well with him.
Payne Stewart
I can’t believe how blessed I am! I’m married to the most wonderful man, Gene Raymond, whom I’m deeply in love with, and, my career is right where I want it to be. I can live like this forever!
Jeanette MacDonald
It brings a smile to my face every time I look in the record book and see my name with the likes of Hutson and Lance Alworth and Raymond Berry, some of the fabled receivers of the NFL. It’s all like a dream to me. I can’t believe it’s true.
Steve Largent
I was very lucky with ‘Soap’ and ‘Who’s the Boss,’ which was great fun, and then went on ‘Coach’ and ‘Everybody Loves Raymond.’ I’ve been truly blessed, and the work has all been fun and a joy.
Katherine Helmond
My dad read, I think, the Perry Mason mysteries and Zane Grey and some humor compendiums… And then at one point, the bookmobile started coming to town. That was really cool. I mean, that was when I read my first Raymond Carver story. I think that was probably 1969 or so. I must have been 13.
Tom Drury
I am really into how words sound out loud, so I was always the kid who would, like, read the page of the book to herself in her room over and over and over. And Raymond Carver is great for that. Tobias Wolff is an author who is really good for that as well.
My act is a little raunchy. When people come to my club, I have to warn them it isn’t Robert from ‘Raymond.’
Brad Garrett
Raymond Chandler managed to write about L.A. his whole career. Should I keep going writing about New York? Is that what I should be doing? Songwriting doesn’t work that way.
Lou Reed
Cardinal Raymond Burke is a 66-year-old guy who lives in Rome, dresses like Queen Elizabeth, and talks like someone who majored in misogyny at some bogus, backwoods, Bible-banging tent school.
Mike Barnicle
My music is about where I am at the time. In ‘Raymond vs. Raymond,’ I was going through a lot of things, and it came out in my music. My marriage fell apart, and I was suddenly a single father.
I didn’t want to have to follow ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ with another sitcom. Let it be my sitcom legacy, and leave it at that.
Ray Romano
The Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute accepts people of any race. We don’t discriminate against anyone. We teach people to reach their highest potential. I set examples by the way I lead my life.
Rosa Parks
I wrote my graduate thesis at New York University on hard-boiled fiction from the 1930s and 1940s, so, for about two years, I read nothing but Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, James Cain and Chester Himes. I developed such a love for this kind of writing.
Megan Abbott
I’ve always been a sci-fi/fantasy guy. My book reports in school, whenever you didn’t have to do it on Shakespeare, I did it on, like, Piers Anthony and Raymond Feist.
Jonathan Hickman
I don’t much live my life as if I was living in a Raymond Chandler novel, which is probably a good thing.
William Gibson
I still love Carson McCullers and Raymond Carver and Toni Morrison and James Baldwin.
Jacqueline Woodson
Some of the greatest shows in history – ‘Seinfeld,’ ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ and ‘House’ – had puny starts but the benefit of schedule protection, increasingly scarce in today’s DVR world. Cable nets can tolerate small ratings, building hits in progress like ‘Breaking Bad,’ or marathon their way to a ‘Duck Dynasty.’
Kevin Reilly
I’m on my own when I say this, but I’m one of the few people that think that ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ is better than ‘Seinfeld.’
Lee Mack
I not only read Raymond Chandler but read all the crime fiction classics. I was hooked.
Michael Connelly
I was reading stories by Raymond Carver and some of his stuff sort of ended abruptly here and there, where in other short stories that I’ve read have a bit of an ending, a climax, a twist or something like that.
Some writers such as John Cheever and Raymond Carver seem to draw artistic energy from analyzing the realm of their own experiences – their social circles and memories and mores. I’m one of those who draw creative energy from the opposite.
Amor Towles
The same issue is happening on a show like Everybody Loves Raymond now, which is in its eighth year and struggling to come up with good stories. It’ll be interesting to see how they do. The bottom line is, it starts with the writers and ends with the writers.
William Devane
With ‘The Big Lebowski,’ we were really consciously thinking about doing a Raymond Chandler story, as much as it’s about L.A.
Ethan Coen
After ‘Raymond,’ there was this big feeling of, ‘What do I do next?’
Ray Romano
I sometimes fee like the spirit of the past resurrected… After all, didn’t cultural studies emerge somewhere at that moment when I first met Raymond Williams or in the glance I exchanged with Richard Hoggart? In that moment, cultural studies was born. It emerged full grown from my head!
Stuart Hall
