Text Quotes
The glory of American television is Dennis Franz  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) Just because it’s a bad job doesn’t mean I need to do it badly  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) I think there is a basic comfort in clever people who know things  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) I don’t like the act of talking; it makes me slightly light-headed  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) Unhappiness is an unfinished state; happy people don’t need our help  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) Every day is the opportunity for a better tomorrow  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) Driving a motorcycle is like flying. All your senses are alive  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) I get anxious about a lot of things, that’s the trouble. I get anxious about everything. I just can’t stop thinking about things all the time. And here’s the really destructive part - it’s always retrospective. I waste time thinking of what I should have said or done  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) I grew up with an impatience with the anti-scientific. So I’m a bit miffed with our current love affair with all things Eastern. If I sneeze on the set, 40 people hand me echinacea. But I’d no sooner take that than eat a pencil. Maybe that’s why I took up boxing. It’s my response to men in white pajamas feeling each other’s chi  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) I personally believe that the iPod is a frankly corrosive device because it encourages you to surround yourself with your favorites. The whole idea of a playlist is to surround yourself with your favorite things, and the interesting thing is that when you do that, they cease to be your favorites  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) Celebrity is absolutely preposterous. Entertainment seems to be inflating. It used to be the punctuation to your life, a film or a novel or a play, a way of celebrating a good week or month. Now it feels as if it’s all punctuation  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) Clive Dunn, as I understand it, retired to the south of Spain, where he worked extensively in watercolours. I don’t own any of Clive Dunn’s watercolours. I loved him in ‘Dad’s Army,’ loved him. But not enough to actually seek out his watercolour work  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) I never went to drama school, I don’t have any certificates saying: ‘He’s a qualified actor.’ But I did think that ‘House’ was something I didn’t have to apologise for. It was something I was really proud of and it was sort of... whether you liked it or not, it was undeniable  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) I think pain is a very - it’s an extremely hard thing to empathize moment to moment. And you often don’t remember your own pain, you know, that moment that you broke a limb or you burned yourself or, I think, this is a common thing that women talk about with childbirth, that the memory of the pain is hard to summon up and relive, thankfully  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) I was too shy, I think, to sing publicly. It takes a particular kind of person. And when I was young, I was not that person. In the first instance, when a record company said to me, do you want to try and make your record, my first reaction was, no, I’m not worthy - I couldn’t possibly, and so on and so forth  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) One great benefit of not being on TV every week is that people will be a lot less interested in what I have in my supermarket basket. I could even un-tint my car windows - or at least opt for a lighter shade  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) Humility was considered a great virtue in my family household. No show of complacency or self-satisfaction was ever tolerated. Patting yourself on the back was definitely not encouraged, and pleasure or pride would be punishable by death  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) I have a reverence for medicine because I hero-worshiped my father [a former doctor], and because I admire doctors, I admire study, empiricism and rational thought. I don’t study, empiricize or think rationally myself - but I admire it in others  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) Winning a rowing race is not like winning anything else. Here’s my theory: you’re facing backwards, so you’re looking at the people you’re beating--and there’s something exquisite about that  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) People are falling all over themselves to send you free shoes and free cufflinks and colonic irrigations for two. Nobody ever offers you a free acceptance speech. There just seems to be a gap in the market. I would love to be able to pull out a speech by Dolce and Gabbana  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) It alarms me to think of all that I have read and how little of it has stayed with me  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) I suppose actors crave attention of some kind or they have suffered some form of arrested development and are still living in a sort of child’s fantasy existence at some level in their psyche.  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) Music is one of the noblest callings I can think of. It’s the highest of all the art forms to me. For example, if my kid said to me, ‘I want to give it all up,’ whatever it is that they’re doing, ‘and I want to take my saxophone and go out,’ I would say, ‘May God go with you. This is a great and noble thing that you’re doing.’  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) The financing of all TV shows is dictated by finding an audience between 18 and 49. I have now passed beyond 49, so probably, I am no longer a desirable commodity for TV. And I am at peace with that; that’s fine.  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) I think actors are attracted to the idea of other identities and concealing themselves behind some other identity.  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) I hate menus, I hate choosing food. I just want to be brought. Bring me dinner!  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) There’s an undeniable pleasure in stepping into an open-top sports car driven by a beautiful woman. It feels like you’re climbing into a metaphor.  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) I think maybe even one of the reasons I became an actor was actually to hide. I mean, it sounds paradoxical because, of course, people are standing up in a public place and encouraging other people to look at them. So that’s not the conventional definition of hiding.  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) I’m reasonably easygoing. Messing up my lines or making a fool of myself is where you find my fears. Like a lot of English people, I’m prey to embarrassment - the dread that everyone’s sort of sniggering at you, that you’re going to look like an idiot. I think that sort of halts us all.  (Hugh Laurie Quotes) When I was a small boy, 10, 11, 12, probably somewhere around there, when I first heard a blues song on the radio, it was a jolt of electricity. It grabbed me by the throat, it made me shiver. And I knew from that moment that this was for me and this would be with me for the rest of my life.  (Hugh Laurie Quotes)
