119371. Once the smoke of the market crash clears off, you know, the Internet will pick back up and go. Take a look at what’s happening to some of the big companies like eBay and Yahoo, the publicly traded stocks. You know, they’re all coming back up off the mat now. – Michael Nesmith

119381. I don’t quite know what a record is anymore. I don’t quite know how to describe it. Don’t know how to define it yet, so I’m just letting it gestate, and grow and see if maybe I’ll get a better sense of what a record is. – Michael Nesmith

119382. I coined a word the other day, but I forgot what it was. It was a good one, it came to me in a dream. – Michael Nesmith

119384. Interviews are usually a follow-up, like a press junket or a publicity junket, or something like that, and I’m not doing any of that right now. I don’t have any axes to grind. – Michael Nesmith

119385. Multimedia scares me off. – Michael Nesmith

119386. Unquestionably, it was going to be highly dangerous. Yet I felt it was quite natural to jump at the task. After all, if you don’t like action and excitement, you don’t go into police work. And, what the hell, I figured, nobody lives forever! – Eliot Ness

119881. Most people are nice and just want to have a chat. – Ben Nicholas

119882. I copied my brother. He was a natural dancer. Graceful. People always asked did we study ballet. We never did. – Harold Nicholas

119947. Most of the early part of an actor’s career, you do the jobs you get. – Jack Nicholson

119958. Just let the wardrobe do the acting. – Jack Nicholson

119959. In this industry, there are only two ways up the ladder. Rung by rung or claw your way to the top. It’s sure been tough on my nails. – Jack Nicholson

119960. In other words, I wouldn’t like to be an actor if I could only be real. I like to get wild, behaviorally wild, and it’s crazy to think of any form where it’s just one way. – Jack Nicholson

119963. I think that’s what distinguishes Schmidt, really. In the movies now, so much of what is appealing to an audience is the dramatic or has to do with science fiction, and Schmidt is simply human. There’s no melodrama; there’s no device, It’s just about a human being. – Jack Nicholson
