134370. We had the boy’s name picked out, but we didn’t have a girl’s. When he turned out to be a boy, we were so relieved. Literally, in the middle of contracting and pushing, and with my wife being drugged – out and half – lucid, we were still coming up with names. – Paul Reiser

134371. Nothing would make me happier if Peter Falk would finally win his Oscar for this. Not just as the writer but as a fan and a friend. It would be so great. – Paul Reiser

134372. We made this movie for $17, and nobody got anything. So it never dawned on me that we would get real people. – Paul Reiser

134381. Every time I see Peter Falk in the movie I think that would be great. We’d be fun together. – Paul Reiser

134382. But you get past that and realize you have to let go of what you think you want. There’ll be plenty of time for that later. Right now, go and be with that baby. Just play with this beautiful little boy. – Paul Reiser

134383. But the two of them together, broke my heart. Olympia and Peter, those scenes… When they’re kissing in their 20s and then kissing in their 70s, that’s what it is. And they had never met five minutes before they shot those scenes. – Paul Reiser

134384. But I really felt that, something about the lights going down, and the sense of community. I saw this movie at one festival, and there were 1700 people. – Paul Reiser

134385. But at the same time that the experience is pulling you apart, it’s also bonding you. You have this joint venture! You both made this baby. And that’s the thing I still can’t get over. – Paul Reiser

134790. You can only hold your stomach in for so many years. – Burt Reynolds

134791. I can sing as well as Fred Astaire can act. – Burt Reynolds

134792. I stopped making movies because I don’t like taking my clothes off. Maybe it’s realism, but in my opinion, it’s utter filth. – Debbie Reynolds

134793. You all know who she is. There’s very little she isn’t. – Debbie Reynolds

134794. Well, one of the things I did was recreate her home in my home. – Debbie Reynolds

134795. I wanted to be as comfortable in that environment as she was. I moved around those areas in character. – Debbie Reynolds

134796. I miss the movies. Still, I understood that my kind of movie has had its day. I thought it was over for me. – Debbie Reynolds

134797. I had the sets that meant so much to this character built – right in my home, especially the kitchen, which was important both for her character and for your introduction to her when Albert comes to visit. – Debbie Reynolds

134798. I gave it all that I had, and it’s gratifying that others seem to be receiving it so well. – Debbie Reynolds

134799. I wanted to get that sense of peace and even boredom that comes with long familiarity. – Debbie Reynolds

134800. I think your program has to reflect what your basic feelings are. I’ll plead guilty to that. – Frank Reynolds

134801. Let’s nail it down, let’s get it right. – Frank Reynolds

134802. The value and rank of every art is in proportion to the mental labor employed in it, or the mental pleasure in producing it. – Joshua Reynolds

134803. Words should be employed as the means, not the end; language is the instrument, conviction is the work. – Joshua Reynolds

134804. Invention, strictly speaking, is little more than a new combination of those images which have been previously gathered and deposited in the memory; nothing can come of nothing. – Joshua Reynolds

134805. The real character of a man is found out by his amusements. – Joshua Reynolds

134806. The greatest man is he who forms the taste of a nation; the next greatest is he who corrupts it. – Joshua Reynolds

134807. It is but a poor eloquence which only shows that the orator can talk. – Joshua Reynolds

134808. If you have great talents, industry will improve them: if you have but moderate abilities, industry will supply their deficiency. – Joshua Reynolds

134809. Few have been taught to any purpose who have not been their own teachers. – Joshua Reynolds

134810. Could we teach taste or genius by rules, they would be no longer taste and genius. – Joshua Reynolds

134811. All the gestures of children are graceful; the reign of distortion and unnatural attitudes commences with the introduction of the dancing master. – Joshua Reynolds

134812. A room hung with pictures is a room hung with thoughts. – Joshua Reynolds

134813. A mere copier of nature can never produce anything great. – Joshua Reynolds

134814. We gained his operational capabilities and he gained our marketing skills. – Mercer Reynolds

134815. That day, my first day on the job, was September 11, 2001! I was actually being recognized by Switzerland the very day that the World Trade Center was hit. – Mercer Reynolds

134816. Initially, I had two thoughts. First, this is a very large conspiracy; and second, our children in Washington. We knew there were a few unidentified planes that may have been headed for the White House or the Capitol Building. – Mercer Reynolds

134817. In 1979 I teamed up with my friend and business partner, Bill DeWitt, and together we formed an oil and gas company that invested through limited partnerships in oil and gas exploration. – Mercer Reynolds

134818. When I exhale, I just turn right into Louie Anderson. – Ryan Reynolds

134819. I remember being upset because I was finally legal to drink in Canada, and I decided to throw that all away and move to America, where I had to wait another two years. I came here to do improv and to try to join the Groundlings. – Ryan Reynolds

134820. We started training a month before the movie started and then by five months in, we were at our peak shape. – Ryan Reynolds

134821. We might be too proud to admit it as guys, but we still need to learn how to manage responsibility, how to face our challenges. – Ryan Reynolds

134822. My father was a police officer before he retired. One of my brothers is also a police officer, and I think they kind of expected I would do something along those lines, like become a fireman or something. – Ryan Reynolds

134823. It’s a nice visual. I had just done Blade and I put on more weight for Blade and I thought I might as well use it so I kept it and added a little more. I wanted him to be a big bear. – Ryan Reynolds

134824. It was comical because you’re at a firing range, all these people are so seriously shooting their little guns. – Ryan Reynolds

134825. If you’re going to commit to that, you’re going to have to find some way to make it bearable and enjoyable. – Ryan Reynolds

134826. I remember that coming to America was scary for me because everything here is just bigger, better, shinier, you know? – Ryan Reynolds

134827. When I meet thousands of fans of the comic – when I realize every one of them can recite the Lantern Corps oath (‘In Brightest Day, in blackest night…’) – I know how important this is to people. – Ryan Reynolds

134828. Acting has given me a way to channel my angst. I feel like an overweight, pimply faced kid a lot of the time – and finding a way to access that insecurity, and put it toward something creative is incredibly rewarding. I feel very lucky. – Ryan Reynolds

134829. I love doing six versions of any joke, so if they’ll give me six takes, I’d love to do it. – Ryan Reynolds

134830. I just love bikes. It’s not the safest passion to have, but I guess it’s better than Russian roulette. – Ryan Reynolds

134831. I had to wear that suit, so I put in my required time in the gym. But I’m not one of those actors who romanticizes his trials working out and brags that he can bench press a panda now. – Ryan Reynolds

134832. I come from a family of cops, and all of them share that understanding that they put their lives on the line. They share and deal with that sense of risk every day, so I got to see that up close. – Ryan Reynolds

134833. I believe in energy like dark energies. I believe that when a family moves into a house where six murders took place, there’s going to be some bad juju in that house. But then again what the hell is wrong with you to be moving in that house to begin with? – Ryan Reynolds

134834. He has such a clear vision of exactly what he wanted out of each character, out of each set, out of each wardrobe change, out of each emotional beat, and action. – Ryan Reynolds

134835. Four months after we finished shooting, I’d been in New Orleans shooting another movie and my agent and I were having a bite to eat – actually in London – and he’s sitting there and goes, ‘Wow, I just can’t believe how ripped you are.’ – Ryan Reynolds

134836. Are you stalking me? Because that would be super. – Ryan Reynolds

134837. I never took acting classes, but I knew I could do it based on the skill with which I lied to my parents on a regular basis! – Ryan Reynolds

134838. The fingers of your thoughts are molding your face ceaselessly. – Charles Reznikoff

134839. I was up above it. Now, I’m down in it. – Trent Reznor

134840. I think there’s something strangely musical about noise. – Trent Reznor

134841. I feel uncomfortable because I’m insecure about who I am. – Trent Reznor

134842. I do actually believe in love. I can’t say that I’m 100 percent successful in that department, but I think it’s one of the few worthwhile human experiences. It’s cooler than anything I can think of right now. – Trent Reznor

134843. Bow down before the one you serve, you’re going to get what you deserve. – Trent Reznor

134844. Apparently, the image of our president is as offensive to MTV as it is to me. – Trent Reznor

134845. And when the day arrives I’ll become the sky and I’ll become the sea and the sea will come to kiss me for I am going home. Nothing can stop me now. – Trent Reznor

134846. Though I still have no semblance of a life outside of Nine Inch Nails at the moment, I realize my goals have gone from getting a record deal or selling another record to being a better person, more well-rounded, having friends, having a relationship with somebody. – Trent Reznor

134847. I’ve become impossible, holding on to when everything seemed to matter more. – Trent Reznor

134848. In my nothing, you were everything, to me. – Trent Reznor

134849. Sometimes we pee on each other before we go on stage. – Trent Reznor

134850. This isn’t meant to last. This is for right now. – Trent Reznor

134851. For me, acting was a way of releasing all of this stuff that I had inside – and a way for me to tell the stories of the people I knew, so that their spirit could live through me. – Ving Rhames

134852. I like to say that I didn’t choose acting – acting chose me. – Ving Rhames

134853. I saw how, when my brother smoked reefer, it made my mother cry. He was 16 at the time. And I saw that she broke down and cried. I never wanted to hurt my mother, so I kept away from drugs. – Ving Rhames

134854. You don’t have to make, you know, $3 Million dollars a movie, or $20 Million dollars a movie, but if you make a living doing what you love doing, then that’s success to me. – Ving Rhames

134855. Are you intimidated by me? Because if you’re intimidated by me, that’s something you’ll have to deal with. – Ving Rhames

134856. Being in therapy is great. I spend an hour just talking about myself. It’s kinda like being the guy on a date. – Caroline Rhea

134857. So little done, so much to do. – Cecil Rhodes

134858. I have found out one thing and that is, if you have an idea, and it is a good idea, if you only stick to it you will come out all right. – Cecil Rhodes

134859. The real fact is that I could no longer stand their eternal cold mutton. – Cecil Rhodes

134860. We must find new lands from which we can easily obtain raw materials and at the same time exploit the cheap slave labor that is available from the natives of the colonies. The colonies would also provide a dumping ground for the surplus goods produced in our factories. – Cecil Rhodes

134861. Remember that you are an Englishman, and have consequently won first prize in the lottery of life. – Cecil Rhodes

134862. Style has always been very important to us. We grew up in the ’70s. Music was glam rock, punk rock and a very stylish movement. – Nick Rhodes

134863. I got this idea about being afraid to let go of something and being afraid of sinking into a state of almost anesthesia, where you have to trust other people. Just the paranoia of it all. And it seemed to suit the frenetic track. So I just wrote it out and, you know, said it. – Nick Rhodes

134864. You can only sleep in one bed at a time. – Nick Rhodes

134865. Obviously with every new album we make, we always have to believe in it and feel we’ve gone in the right direction. – Nick Rhodes

134866. You listen to a piece of music and it will remind you of something-it might make you happy, it might make you sad, but it is very emotive. And I think that Duran Duran have always understood that. – Nick Rhodes

134867. I appreciate the additional additives and preservatives that help sell a project, but I’m sticking to what works best for me. I gotta sell the album live on stage and make people believe in the songs. – Busta Rhymes

134868. I want you to see that I’m looking. Look at me look at you. I’m cool with that. – Busta Rhymes

134869. Age seldom arrives smoothly or quickly. It’s more often a succession of jerks. – Jean Rhys

134870. Reading makes immigrants of us all. It takes us away from home, but more important, it finds homes for us everywhere. – Jean Rhys

134871. I often want to cry. That is the only advantage women have over men – at least they can cry. – Jean Rhys

134872. I like shape very much. A novel has to have shape, and life doesn’t have any. – Jean Rhys

134873. I enjoy looking at words on paper and visualizing how to make them come to life. As a director, the creative process is really amazing. – Alfonso Ribeiro

134874. I’ve been very fortunate in the things I’ve had in my life. But, at the same time, I wish I had the same types of memories as everyone else. – Alfonso Ribeiro

134875. If you want to be an actor, you have to do it because you love acting, not because you want to be a celebrity. – Alfonso Ribeiro

134876. We are all winners here. – Alfonso Ribeiro

134877. We went to – I guess it was a legitimate boiler room, and I sat in front of this guy who literally was on the phone with two people at once. They call it double fisting. – Giovanni Ribisi

134878. I used to shy away from publicity so as not to let it get in the way of the work. But it’s part of the job. The tabloids are a whole other arena. If fame happens, it happens. I just want to maintain focus. – Giovanni Ribisi

134879. Dostoevski was on to something. You are the path you choose. You are what your vocation is. – Giovanni Ribisi

134880. I grew up with Scientology – my parents at one point were clerical. It’s a pragmatic philosophy, not merely a belief system. Yeah, it’s had media exposure because certain luminaries do Scientology, but millions of people do it who are not celebrities. It’s not a threat or some cult. – Giovanni Ribisi

134881. I love talking about Scientology. – Giovanni Ribisi

134882. I’m old fashioned with my cell phone. I like that human contact and I think it’s important. – Giovanni Ribisi

134883. I’m so critical of myself. I’m actually really, really proud of the film. It’s really cool to see a movie at Sundance because everybody is so supportive. – Giovanni Ribisi

134884. I’ve been allowed to grow over the past twenty years. I’ve managed to avoid being trapped in one moment of my career and for that, I’m very thankful. – Giovanni Ribisi

134885. If I had to choose criteria, for me, it’s about first the director. I want to be a part of something that’s good and intellectually challenging. After the director it’s the character and the story. That’s the deal for me. – Giovanni Ribisi

134886. My mother told me I was begging her to be an actor when I was four. My father and my grandfather saw at least one or two movies a week; they were film buffs, so I guess it just rubbed off on me. And now it’s kind of become a way of life for me. – Giovanni Ribisi

134887. Those people are unabashedly ruthless as far as money is concerned. – Giovanni Ribisi

134888. What’s sad is that there is an addictive quality to that, to believing your own hype; to allowing yourself to become validated by others and no longer by yourself. That’s the danger of celebrity. – Giovanni Ribisi

134889. You have to take into account it was the cell phone that became what the modern-day concept of a phone call is, and this is a device that’s attached to your hip 24/7. Before that there was ‘leave a message’ and before that there was ‘hopefully you’re home.’ – Giovanni Ribisi

134890. There’s the concept that if I do this big budget project, then that will help me do the things I really want to do and bring more money to those films. – Giovanni Ribisi

134891. I hate nostalgia, I want nothing to do with it. – Marc Ribot

134892. Jazz is a music of great achievements but speed and chops serve a different function in jazz. – Marc Ribot

134893. Modern instruments were designed to throw sound all in one direction. – Marc Ribot

134894. I’m not a really good classical guitarist by any means, but what I learned from this is a way of working very slowly on solo pieces and I enjoyed working on these pieces of John’s. They were not written for solo guitar but a lot of them were easy to adapt. – Marc Ribot

134895. Influence, people think about it as someone you like but influence is also what you’re revolted by. In fact, often it’s what you’re running away from. – Marc Ribot

134896. Good is the director who lets you do what you have to do. – Marc Ribot

134897. I claimed identity as Jewish musicians for political reasons, because most of us were touring in Germany and, at this time, twelve years ago, there was a strong resurgence of Nazism in the places we were touring and part of that was on the music scene. – Marc Ribot

134898. By far the greatest part of those goods which are the objects of desire, are procured by labour; and they may be multiplied, not in one country alone, but in many, almost without any assignable limit, if we are disposed to bestow the labour necessary to obtain them. – David Ricardo

134899. In comparing therefore the value of the same commodity, at different periods of time, the consideration of the comparative skill and intensity of labour, required for that particular commodity, needs scarcely to be attended to, as it operates equally at both periods. – David Ricardo

134900. If we were left to ourselves, unfettered by legislative enactments, we should gradually withdraw our capital from the cultivation of such lands, and import the produce which is at present raised upon them. – David Ricardo

134901. If then the prosperity of the commercial classes, will most certainly lead to accumulation of capital, and the encouragement of productive industry; these can by no means be so surely obtained as by a fall in the price of corn. – David Ricardo

134902. If the quantity of labour realized in commodities, regulate their exchangeable value, every increase of the quantity of labour must augment the value of that commodity on which it is exercised, as every diminution must lower it. – David Ricardo

134903. If the demand for home commodities should be diminished, because of the fall of rent on the part of the landlords, it will be increased in a far greater degree by the increased opulence of the commercial classes. – David Ricardo

134904. Gold and silver are no doubt subject to fluctuations, from the discovery of new and more abundant mines; but such discoveries are rare, and their effects, though powerful, are limited to periods of comparatively short duration. – David Ricardo

134905. If a commodity were in no way useful, – in other words, if it could in no way contribute to our gratification, – it would be destitute of exchangeable value, however scarce it might be, or whatever quantity of labour might be necessary to procure it. – David Ricardo

134906. Gold and silver, like other commodities, have an intrinsic value, which is not arbitrary, but is dependent on their scarcity, the quantity of labour bestowed in procuring them, and the value of the capital employed in the mines which produce them. – David Ricardo

134907. In stating the principles which regulate exchangeable value and price, we should carefully distinguish between those variations which belong to the commodity itself, and those which are occasioned by a variation in the medium in which value is estimated, or price expressed. – David Ricardo

134908. In the same manner if any nation wasted part of its wealth, or lost part of its trade, it could not retain the same quantity of circulating medium which it before possessed. – David Ricardo

134909. It is not by the absolute quantity of produce obtained by either class, that we can correctly judge of the rate of profit, rent, and wages, but by the quantity of labour required to obtain that produce. – David Ricardo

134910. Profits might also increase, because improvements might take place in agriculture, or in the implements of husbandry, which would augment the produce with the same cost of production. – David Ricardo

134911. The exchangeable value of all commodities, rises as the difficulties of their production increase. – David Ricardo

134912. During the period of capital moving from one employment to another, the profits on that to which capital is flowing will be relatively high, but will continue so no longer than till the requisite capital is obtained. – David Ricardo

134913. The proportions, too, in which the capital that is to support labour, and the capital that is invested in tools, machinery and buildings, may be variously combined. – David Ricardo

134914. Whenever, then, the usual and ordinary rate of the profits of agricultural stock, and all the outgoings belonging to the cultivation of land, are together equal to the value of the whole produce, there can be no rent. – David Ricardo

134915. The rise or fall of wages is common to all states of society, whether it be the stationary, the advancing, or the retrograde state. – David Ricardo

134916. There can be no rise in the value of labour without a fall of profits. – David Ricardo

134917. But a rise in the wages of labour would not equally affect commodities produced with machinery quickly consumed, and commodities produced with machinery slowly consumed. – David Ricardo

134918. Gold, on the contrary, though of little use compared with air or water, will exchange for a great quantity of other goods. – David Ricardo

134919. The facility of obtaining food is beneficial in two ways to the owners of capital, it at the same time raises profits and increases the amount of consumable commodities. – David Ricardo

134920. A rise in wages, from an alteration in the value of money, produces a general effect on price, and for that reason it produces no real effect whatever on profits. – David Ricardo

134921. A rise of wages from this cause will, indeed, be invariably accompanied by a rise in the price of commodities; but in such cases, it will be found that labour and all commodities have not varied in regard to each other, and that the variation has been confined to money. – David Ricardo

134922. After all the fertile land in the immediate neighbourhood of the first settlers were cultivated, if capital and population increased, more food would be required, and it could only be procured from land not so advantageously situated. – David Ricardo

134923. Again two manufacturers may employ the same amount of fixed, and the same amount of circulating capital; but the durability of their fixed capitals may be very unequal. – David Ricardo

134924. As the revenue of the farmer is realized in raw produce, or in the value of raw produce, he is interested, as well as the landlord, in its high exchangeable value, but a low price of produce may be compensated to him by a great additional quantity. – David Ricardo

134925. This is my costume. I’m a homicidal maniac. They look just like everyone else. – Christina Ricci

134926. My dream role would probably be a psycho killer, because the whole thing I love about movies is that you get to do things you could never do in real life, and that would be my way of vicariously experiencing being a psycho killer. Also, it’s incredibly romantic. – Christina Ricci

134927. I’m an actor who hates dialogue and the present day and reality. – Christina Ricci

134928. I like the way my own feet smell. I love to smell my sneakers when I take them off. – Christina Ricci

134929. If I know I have everything prepared for when I get killed by a stalker, then I can go to sleep. – Christina Ricci

134930. I don’t think there’s a problem at all with steroids in the NHL. I can say that. – Mike Ricci

134931. In the summertime, we do a lot of video work. With that, I can show them if their head is moving too far or if the ball position or alignment isn’t right. – Mike Ricci

134932. A good interpreter can take a piece of bad music and make it sound pretty decent, while a bad interpreter can take good music and make it sound cheap. I can tell that some people have a bad taste, and unlike on the piano, they smear around a lot, that is bad taste. – Ruggiero Ricci

134933. Well, rhythm is 90 percent of the interpretation. – Ruggiero Ricci

134934. When you can hear a violinist, that is better than you, then you learn from him, because if you play with somebody who is worse than you, then you go down. – Ruggiero Ricci

134935. A specialist is someone who does everything else worse. – Ruggiero Ricci

134936. Colour does not make so much difference. Look at the Bach Chaconne: There is not one dynamic mark in the whole Bach Chaconne. Colours do not make so much difference. – Ruggiero Ricci

134937. I don’t have favourites, I think, when you play, you have to be like a prostitute, you have to love the piece you are playing. Even if you don’t like it, you have to play it as if you would like it. Then you are a good interpreter. – Ruggiero Ricci

134938. So, first you have to be able to play with a metronome. Then you take your freedom. If you play in an orchestra, you got to watch the conductor, he is like a metronome, but it is more difficult because he can change rhythms. – Ruggiero Ricci

134939. Of course the most difficult thing on the violin is always intonation. The second one is rhythm. If you play in tune, in time with a good sound that’s already high level. Those three are the main things. – Ruggiero Ricci

134940. It would be easier to say, what was the difference in style from many years ago. Many years ago, the old violinists, they also had a good technique, they were not tonally as good. – Ruggiero Ricci

134941. You have to do a lot of listening, you don’t just learn out of yourself. – Ruggiero Ricci

134942. Every violinist has a different style, so it’s important to be able to recognise their styles. You don’t have to like everyone’s style but you have to know these styles. – Ruggiero Ricci

134943. First-person narrators is the way I know how to write a book with the greatest power and chance of artistic success. – Anne Rice

134944. Dickens is a very underrated writer at the moment. Everyone in his time admired him but I think right now he’s not spoken of enough. – Anne Rice

134945. Evil is always possible. Goodness is a difficulty. – Anne Rice

134946. I’m fascinated by almost any mythology that I can get my hands on. – Anne Rice

134947. I loved words. I love to sing them and speak them and even now, I must admit, I have fallen into the joy of writing them. – Anne Rice

134948. I’m going to keep on dealing with the supernatural in a lot of ways. – Anne Rice

134949. I thought The Shining was just absolutely wonderful. Stephen King reaches all kinds of people. In the beginning he was just dismissed out of hand, which was terrible. – Anne Rice

134950. I read The Old Curiosity Shop before I began Blackwood Farm. I was amazed at the utter madness in that book. – Anne Rice

134951. I was obsessed with religious questions, the basics: Why are we here? Why is the world so beautiful? – Anne Rice

134952. I wish we had more visible Christian and Catholic leaders who talked about love. – Anne Rice

134953. I’m definitely more influenced by European writers than I am by American writers, there’s no doubt about that. – Anne Rice

134954. I love New Orleans physically. I love the trees and the balmy air and the beautiful days. I have a beautiful house here. – Anne Rice

134955. I’m always looking, and I’m always asking questions. – Anne Rice

134956. I gave up on the big screen. The Witching Hour was at Warner Bros. for 10 years and it just didn’t work out. – Anne Rice

134957. I feel like an outsider, and I always will feel like one. I’ve always felt that I wasn’t a member of any particular group. – Anne Rice

134958. I enjoy the Web site a lot and I like being able to talk to my readers. I’ve always had a very close relationship with them. – Anne Rice

134959. I do want to go another way – to write something completely different. – Anne Rice

134960. I do not read the ancient languages, but I am beginning to study Greek. – Anne Rice

134961. I claim Dickens as a mentor. He’s my teacher. He’s one of my driving forces. – Anne Rice

134962. I can’t keep up with Stephen King’s output. – Anne Rice

134963. I can’t get very far away from Christianity, I can’t get very far away from the angels and the saints. I work them in always, in some way. – Anne Rice

134964. I broke with my religion in college. – Anne Rice

134965. I know nothing of God or the Devil. I have never seen a vision nor learned a secret that would damn or save my soul. – Anne Rice

134966. I want to love all the children of God – Christian, Jew, Moslem, Hindu, Buddhist – everyone. I want to love gay Christians and straight Christians. – Anne Rice

134967. The world doesn’t need any more mediocrity or hedged bets. – Anne Rice

134968. We have to become saints. We have to become like Christ. Anything less is simply not enough. – Anne Rice

134969. You reach deep down and bring up what feels absolutely authentic to you as you move along with the book, but you don’t know everything about it. You can’t. – Anne Rice

134970. You can look at the New York Times Bestseller List and you can be pretty sure that the writers on that list don’t know each other very well. – Anne Rice

134971. Writers, as they gain success, feel like outsiders because writers don’t come together in real groups. – Anne Rice

134972. When you make his sandwiches, put a sexy or loving note in his lunch box. – Anne Rice

134973. When I write something, every word of it is meant. I can’t say it enough. – Anne Rice

134974. What I did was take the Jesus of the Gospels, the Son of God, the Son of the Virgin Mary, and sought to make Him utterly believable, a vital breathing character. – Anne Rice
