I believe veganism can be beneficial for the individual and the world, and of course the animal, but belief is like laying in the dark with someone and telling them you love them and hearing nothing back. So I’ve never had the confidence to get on a soapbox and tell someone else what to do.
Casey Affleck
The use of violence in movies is a subject that’s worth addressing. I’m not standing on a soapbox or wagging a finger, but I’m interested in those subjects for sure.
Naomi Watts
I’m enjoying the opportunity that ‘Parks And Recreation’ affords me to exploit my own soapbox agenda, which is to try to encourage people to make things with their hands.
Nick Offerman
The bar for a chief executive of a public corporation to repudiate a United States president is extraordinarily high. Corporate leaders aren’t given their power, prestige, responsibility, and nine-figure pay packages to use the corner office as their personal soapbox.
James B. Stewart
Instead of going to a GLAAD event and standing on a soapbox, I am writing roles that I feel will change the narrative and open doors.
Tommy Dorfman
It’s a very short walk to go from making jokes to getting on a soapbox and going on a diatribe.
Wyatt Cenac
I have to say, without getting up on a soapbox, I find these reality shows absolutely disgusting.
Terry Wogan
There’s a lot of talk now about the PC police, and ‘why is everything bad?’ It isn’t. What it is, is that marginalized and oppressed people who have never had a soapbox, who have never been given a microphone, suddenly have a microphone.
Lexi Alexander
Oliver Stone should be given a helping hand – indeed, a vigorous shove – into the land of forced retirement. There, in the professional wilderness where he belongs, standing on a splintered soapbox right next to Mel Gibson’s, he can preach his anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism into the wind.
Haim Saban
I don’t like beating people on the head with the message. I don’t like standing on the soapbox.
Lena Waithe
I believe every editor should stand to edit. That’s just my particular soapbox. Some things are so delicate and depend on such fine, delicate work. One frame in one direction or another can make such a difference and it is, in that, like brain surgery.
Walter Murch
My humour has always come from anger, but I have to make sure I don’t just get angry and jump on a soapbox.
Carl Hiaasen
The wheelchair and the prosthesis give me a soapbox to stand on. If it helps me get my message across, I’m glad; then we need to talk about what we need to do for this country.
Tammy Duckworth
From my experience, politicians are much more uncomfortable being made fun of than they are being preached at and screeched at – you know, and the soapbox routine. They’re much more uneasy knowing they’re a target of ridicule.
Carl Hiaasen
I think cinema should provoke thoughts, sure, but using it as I soapbox I think is the wrong place. I never want to be part of something like that, where there’s an agenda there that’s not about telling a story, where its someone getting on a soapbox and preaching their own beliefs onto somebody.
Jeremy Renner
I’m not sitting on a soapbox telling women what they should and shouldn’t do, but I know what works for me.
Cate Blanchett
I have no desire to get on a soapbox or be preachy. I don’t think comedy needs to be ‘brave’ or ‘important.’
Chris Gethard
If you stand on a soapbox and trade rhetoric with a dictator you never win.
Mel Brooks
A theatre is not a blank page for editorial, it is not a soapbox or a Tannoy system: it is a conscience that wakes with what is happening in the space, and wakes further still in response to what people are making of it.
Andrew O’Hagan
I’m really not big on nationalism, to be honest with you. I really don’t think it gets people anywhere except near a pile of dead bodies. I’m Irish, yeah, but I don’t need to get up on a soapbox about it.
Dylan Moran
Not to get too deep, but I was brought up by these women who if you wanted to label them, maybe they were feminists, but you know what? They never asked for that or wanted it and they never got up on a soapbox and spoke about it, they just did it. They did their work, they did their jobs, they were who they were.
Chris Harrison
If I had a choice, I would rather watch a comedian not involve themselves in politics at all but be hilarious than someone who doesn’t really know what they’re talking about getting on their soapbox and complaining.
Jon Richardson
Who has to have a soapbox when all you’ve ever needed is your voice?
Clint Smith
I always enjoy rhythms and melodies, but I always use my voice as more of an instrument and less of a soapbox for me to say or to preach.
Chino Moreno
I don’t want to be on a soapbox, but I feel like a lot of documentary filmmakers are part of the ancient tradition of writing down notes, of saying, ‘Hey people, hey people!’
