Anderson Quotes

Anderson Quotes by Stephen Thompson, Derek Brunson, Rick Famuyiwa, Jonathan Levine, Patrisse Cullors, Leonardo DiCaprio and many others.

Me coming from a karate and kickboxing background, Anderson Silva was like my idol, and so was Machida, especially with his karate background.
Stephen Thompson
I grew up watching Anderson. He was my favorite fighter.
Derek Brunson
‘Black cinema’ I don’t even know what that means. It’s just cinema. When Paul Thomas Anderson makes a movie, we don’t just say it’s ‘white cinema.’
Rick Famuyiwa
To be a director, you have to think you’re the best. Ever since I went to film school, I imagined that you have to think deep down that you want to be Martin Scorsese or you want to be P.T. Anderson. Like, am I as good as those guys? Absolutely not. I feel like I keep learning, and I feel like I keep getting better.
Jonathan Levine
Tamir Rice, Tanisha Anderson, Mya Hall, Walter Scott, Sandra Bland – these names are important. They’re inherently important, and the space that #BlackLivesMatter held and continues to hold helped propel the conversation around the state-sanctioned violence they experienced.
Patrisse Cullors
There are a lot of directors I’d still love to work with. Paul Thomas Anderson is someone I’d love to work with. I think Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu is very talented. Ang Lee is very talented. I mean, there are a lot of people. There are many great directors out there.
Leonardo DiCaprio
I beat Anderson Silva and then Luke Rockhold, who was, pound-for-pound, one of the best. Now I get to do Dan Henderson, who is a legend in the sport.
Michael Bisping
Conor McGregor knows how to control distance well, but Anderson does it like nobody else.
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
I’m a huge Wes Anderson fan. I literally love every single film. He hasn’t made a bad film; I’ve seen every single one. They’ve all been brilliant, from ‘Bottle Rocket’ up to ‘Moonrise Kingdom,’ they’ve all been wonderful.
Saoirse Ronan
I would love to work with anybody who has a good story to tell – Patrick Graham, Vikramaditya Motwane, Anurag Kashyap, Neeraj Ghaywan, Coen Brothers, Wes Anderson. I don’t know why I was not considered for that Indian guy’s part in ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel.’
Jim Sarbh
I’ll never doubt Anderson Silva.
Wanderlei Silva
I want to have the biggest challenges in front of me and conquer them. That’s why I wanted to fight Anderson Silva when nobody else wanted to fight him.
Chris Weidman
I wore No. 25 in college, so naturally when I arrived in Orlando, I wanted that number, but Nick Anderson had it. I decided to go with No. 1 because of my name, Penny.
Penny Hardaway
If you don’t watch ‘The Young Turks,’ you don’t know me at all. Whereas no one watches Anderson Cooper, but everyone knows him.
Cenk Uygur
I’ve got big respect for Corey Anderson. He’s a great fighter, he poses a big threat.
Jimi Manuwa
It doesn’t matter if I’m a rival of Anderson Silva’s or not; I’m also very objective. And I’m not going to take something from a guy that he earned. Anderson Silva earned the right to be called the greatest of all time. And those are just the facts.
Chael Sonnen
There’s no one type of film that I like watching. I loved ‘Tropic Thunder’ and the first ‘Austin Powers,’ and then ‘The Godfather Parts I’ and ‘II,’ ‘There Will Be Blood,’ Wes Anderson films.
Stana Katic
Obviously, in my past, I had a quite wild relationship with Pamela Anderson.
Bret Michaels
Well, PT Anderson sent me a script of Boogie Nights which I let lay around my house for about three months, then one day I’m cleaning my office and decided that I’d better read this before the guy calls me back. I never put it down, bro.
Luis Guzman
I love the fact that James Ivory made films about Britain, made ‘Howards End’ and ‘The Remains of the Day,’ or that Paul Thomas Anderson made ‘Phantom Thread.’ They’re about Britishness, but they’re from an American perspective. And I actually think they’re fantastic in the way that they understand Britishness.
Andrew Haigh
Here are the five guys I learned the business from: Barry Windham, Ricky Steamboat, Arn Anderson, Larry Zbyszko, and Bobby Eaton. Those guys taught me how to do everything in the ring. I learned so much from each of them.
My favorite fighter is Anderson Silva.
Ryan Guzman
Anderson Silva, Georges Saint-Pierre, and Rodrigo Nogueira are some of the top fighters in the UFC among many other great fighters. The UFC has many of the toughest fighters around.
Lyoto Machida
If you look at UFC champions: BJ Penn – terrifying! GSP – terrifying! Anderson Silva – terrifying! But I’m not terrifying.
Forrest Griffin
The best incarnation of The Four Horsemen was undoubtedly the unit comprised of Ric Flair, Barry Windham, Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard, along with talented manager JJ Dillon, which will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2012.
Jim Ross
At 185 in the UFC they had Rich Franklin and Anderson Silva, and I couldn’t go to 205 – they had Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell and all of those big guys. I just wasn’t mature enough, so if I hadn’t fought at 170 I probably wouldn’t have had the career I’ve had.
Anthony Johnson
I love storytellers. When I was growing up, my inspirations were watching Eddie Murphy, Dennis Wolfberg, and Louie Anderson. These guys were great at telling stories, and I made that my own style, talking about things that happened to me and trying to make them funny.
Jo Koy
My chief literary influences have been Paul Laurence Dunbar, Carl Sandburg, and Walt Whitman. My favorite public figures include Jimmy Durante, Marlene Dietrich, Mary McLeod Bethune, Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, Marian Anderson, and Henry Armstrong.
Langston Hughes
‘Anderson’ is what I’ve been called since I was a kid; my mom is about the only person who calls me ‘Mike.’
Anderson East
Tailor Made will help Ferrari’s clients tailor their cars in a very personal, specific way. It’s a bespoke service, like visiting Huntsman or Anderson & Sheppard or whoever your favourite Savile Row tailor is.
Lapo Elkann
You’re there to score runs. If you don’t do that over a period of time, people will look elsewhere. That hasn’t changed and that’ll never change, whether it’s myself or Jimmy Anderson, you’ve got to play to a certain level to be picked for England or even Essex.
Alastair Cook
It’s been good and a nice chance to work with some great actors and actresses – Natalie Anderson, Jeff Hordley, Emma Atkins, Charley Webb and Dominic Power.
Kelvin Fletcher
I had a project called ‘Cover Art,’ which was the first project I did under the new name Anderson .Paak. I went through this process where I was recording new music for about six months straight.
Anderson Paak
I want to work with Wes Anderson, Paul Thomas Anderson, the Coen Brothers, or Spike Jonze.
Thomas Middleditch
We expected to have a good time with Clive Anderson ’cause I’ve always liked him, his shows.
Maurice Gibb
Anderson’s muckraking is one of debatable ends constantly used to justify questionable works.
Thomas Griffith
There was a match in Alaska that I had with Beth Phoenix at a house show where we had a standing ovation from Ric Flair, Triple H, John Cena, and Arn Anderson. I got to work with her so much that we knew each other’s body language. Got a standing ovation from the entire locker room. It was amazing.
Mickie James
I’ve always been a fan of Anderson’s. Back when he was in Meca, I met his dad, and we talked. He always treated me very well.
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
My dream job is to be the Robin to Anderson Cooper’s Batman.
Sophia Bush
The difference between Marilyn Monroe and the early Pamela Anderson is not that great.
Hugh Hefner
I have no problem with people having plastic surgery. But I do find it bizarre we think it’s OK for women to have a foreign body put into them just for the sake of looking like Pamela Anderson.
Davinia Taylor
Coming from a different perspective on a society is really interesting. I love the Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘Phantom Thread,’ and that’s a version of Britishness and Englishness made by an American.
Andrew Haigh
Guys like Ole Anderson, Gene Anderson, Mad Dog Vachon, Johnny Valentine. I love them to death. I’ll love them forever.
Roddy Piper
During a fight with Anderson Silva, I slipped on an imaginary banana peel.
Forrest Griffin
Anderson Cooper is fine. He is a smart, conscientious guy, and he seems to want his show to produce and highlight good journalism. But he also seems to want to replace Regis, or maybe even Oprah.
Alex Pareene
I went to this vocal coach, Ron Anderson, who has worked with Axl Rose and Chris Cornell, to train my voice and learn a whole new way of singing.
M. Shadows
I’m just very impressed with the way Jimmy Anderson goes about his business.
Glenn McGrath
I love what Paul Thomas Anderson did with ‘The Master’ with putting out those teasers made up of footage that’s not in the movie.
David Lowery
I’m very fortunate to have the privilege of working with directors like Bill Condon and Paul Thomas Anderson, who I think is one of the greatest filmmakers of our time.
Rami Malek
That would make a great Instagram photo – me and David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson.
Alexandra Daddario
I have the same pet peeve as Anderson Cooper, which is bare feet in public. I hate it. It so grosses me out, especially in New York. Oh my God, New York in the summer with people and their feet in their sandals and their flip-flops, like get it away!
Busy Philipps
Anderson Silva I think is extraordinarily talented, but I don’t think his submission game is great. We’ve seen him get caught in heel hooks.
Frank Mir
I didn’t write any music at all, and then, I remember Jon Anderson being very insistent saying that there were two kinds of musicians: the ones who wrote music and the ones who didn’t.
Bill Bruford
Honestly, I don’t think anyone confuses me with Wes Anderson. He’s in his own terrific universe, but not the kind anyone would mistake for mine.
Paul W. S. Anderson
I was born in Lagos, Nigeria, and I moved to Anderson, Indiana, in 2003 to go to school. I finished high school in America, then I went to college.
Dayo Okeniyi
I went out there, and I fought Anderson Silva, and you know what? I got a big W, and that’s massive for my career going forward.
Daniel Cormier
I think the more common players who have been around for a while – Joe Root, Alastair Cook, Jimmy Anderson, Stuart Broad – those guys I know of, they’re fantastic players.
Dale Steyn
People forget, I was 9-0, I was fighting Anderson Silva. I was fighting the best guys this sport has ever seen, one after the other, with no experience.
Chris Weidman
I’m a big fan of Anderson Silva.
Jimi Manuwa
I’ve worked with David Lynch since I was 17, and working with him is home and family; being around Alexander Payne is home and family, Jonathan Demme. There are directors… Robert Altman, Paul Thomas Anderson… They are directors where I create homes.
Laura Dern
Jon Anderson and I, we really liked a lot of classical music, and we wanted to get some orchestral arrangements going on ‘Time And A Word.’
Chris Squire
Anderson Cooper’s on-air reaction to Bob Simon’s death; Wolf Blitzer personalizing his experience in going back to Auschwitz where his grandparents lost their lives – I think that has all made our air more authentic.
Jeff Zucker
I grew up in St. Louis in a tiny house full of large music – Mahalia Jackson and Marian Anderson singing majestically on the stereo, my German-American mother fingering ‘The Lost Chord’ on the piano as golden light sank through trees, my Palestinian father trilling in Arabic in the shower each dawn.
Naomi Shihab Nye
I expect the best Anderson Silva. I don’t think he’ll toy with me like he toyed with other guys, I can explode in and touch his chin, and all it takes is one shot.
Derek Brunson
I don’t think Paul Thomas Anderson has a standard approach to anything.
Katherine Waterston
I’m a huge Paul Thomas Anderson fan.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Things can change quickly in the UFC. I lost to Nate Marquardt in my first loss as a middleweight and then I defeated Dan Miller and fought for the title against Anderson Silva.
Demian Maia
I’m topical as hell. That’s not going to change if I lose weight. There are a lot of comics that do ‘fat jokes’ better than I do – Louie Anderson, John Pinette, Gabriel Iglesias. These guys are phenomenal.
Ralphie May
A lot of Knxwledge’s instrumentals just brought out this tone and swagger that I had played with before but had never really pinpointed before on my Anderson .Paak stuff. But then it just came so easily.
Anderson Paak
I say over and over again that I am just standing on the shoulders of so many who have set this path for me, and they may not be seen or recognized or have been given an opportunity to have a voice, but I’m here representing all of those dancers. Dance Theatre of Harlem Virginia Johnson, Tai Jimenez, Lauren Anderson.
Misty Copeland
I wanted to be Buck Owens and Bill Anderson and Roger Miller. With a higher-resolution video screen. And lasers.
Brad Paisley
I would love to meet or work with Sofia Coppola. Or Wes Anderson or Spike Jonze. I’d love to meet them. The way they film, it’s all so geometric.
I think that if you put me and Sebastian Stan as Ric Flair and Arn Anderson in a Four Horsemen movie, and then you cast Ethan Suplee as Ole Anderson. Then you get someone wacked out of their head like Ben Foster or Emile Hirsch to play Tully Blanchard. It could be really cool.
Paul Walter Hauser
My favorite Wes Anderson movie is ‘The Darjeeling Limited,’ because I have two other brothers, and I just feel that connection so well. All of his films have something so great and unique about them, that I don’t know how I would be if I don’t like them. I wouldn’t be me. My personality is his sensibility.
Tony Revolori
If someone says Wes Anderson is an auteur, I’ll believe it 100 percent. Fine. He’s an auteur, but I’m not.
Alex Garland
Funny enough, the first time I watched ‘Arrow’ was because Audrey Marie Anderson, who plays Lyla, was in my episodes of ‘The Walking Dead’ with me.
Juliana Harkavy
We learned about people like Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Booker T. Washington and Marian Anderson. Harriet Tubman was my favorite.
Claudette Colvin
There is no way in my right mind I would contemplate running 26 miles-plus unless it involved a chase with Pamela Anderson.
Jasper Carrott
When I started, I just put my nose to the grindstone, had great trainers and opponents like Fit Finlay, Arn Anderson, Booker T, Umaga and Bob Holly, and good things started to happen.
Bobby Lashley
I think both Georges St-Pierre and Anderson Silva are establishing legacies just by how long they’ve maintained their championship runs. I think both of them still have a lot left in their careers.
Randy Couture
In order to make Alma innocent and open, I had to forget that I’m stressed as an actress because I’m making a film with Paul Thomas Anderson. I had to let go of everything and hold onto the text. The language was like a rope I could cling onto and make my way blindfolded through the shooting.
Vicky Krieps
Anderson knees people in the face from the clinch. That guy is a world class Muay Thai fighter.
Derek Brunson
I like Fox, but I also like Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon.
Jim Norton
There are a few directors as a young person where I was kind of like, ‘Well, these are a sure bet.’ The Coens, Paul Thomas Anderson, Wes Anderson.
Allison Tolman
Although ‘The Anderson Platoon’ was what we would now call an ’embedded film’ – with all the ambiguities that term implies – somehow Schoendoerffer got away with showing things as they really were from a grunt’s perspective.
Kevin Macdonald
I’m Arn Anderson, and I’d be damned if I’m going to coach a loser.
Arn Anderson
Louie Anderson thinks my thing is the absurdness of reality. That’s what we do on ‘Portlandia’ all the time. I try to bring that absurdness of reality to everything.
Jonathan Krisel
Wes Anderson’s films, 6-year-olds are crazy about them.
Noah Baumbach
I have this original style that I want to show to the world. I don’t want to be kind of this beat down, bruise-you-up kind of dude and have Karl Anderson cut all my promos for me. I don’t want to have to do that.
Kenny Omega
I love what many of my contemporaries are doing, especially people like Terry Gilliam, David Cronenberg, P. T. Anderson, and Alfonso Cuaron.
Guillermo del Toro
Besides kind of like the Wes Anderson, or, of course, a lot of the European movies, most everybody in the States, the big studios, make pretty much the same film. And we’re kind of held to Pixar standards, or Disney standards, as it’s kind of always been in the animation industry.
Genndy Tartakovsky
Someone said Anderson Silva and GSP would be a $12 million fight. I told people that for $12 million, I’d fight them both right now. At the same time. People took that as ‘He’s going to fight again.’ It was a joke. But if you came up with $12 million, yeah, of course I will fight again.
Chuck Liddell
Sparky Anderson taught me this a long time ago: ‘There’s three ways you can treat a person. You can pat ’em on the butt, you can kick ’em in the butt, or you can leave ’em alone.’
Pete Rose
All of Wes Anderson’s films are confections, memoirs created in cinematic snow globes, with the subtext that memory is the most extraordinary confection of all.
Steve Erickson
A guy called Arthur Brown… was a big influence of mine… and also Ian Anderson from Jethro Tull.
Bruce Dickinson
When you have the chance to work with Wes Anderson, with Stephen Frears and Chris Weitz and Roman Polanski and Terrance Malick you don’t say no.
Alexandre Desplat
It’s not just the light weights that give a long toned look with the Tracy Anderson Method, it’s using the body in different rotations while contracting and releasing the muscle, causing it to stretch and lengthen.
Tracy Anderson
I’ve always loved old school wrestling: Tully Blanchard, Arn Anderson, Ric Flair, Sting, Hot Stuff Eddie Gilbert. To me, that’s the golden age of professional wrestling.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman
I remember Kenny Anderson. He’s got these huge stacks of Fed Ex envelopes. They were super-packed and he’d open it up and it would be all checks. He was always signing his own checks. He would always call me Kid.’ He’d say, Kid, always remember to sign your own checks. Don’t allow anybody to sign your checks.’
Jermaine O’Neal
I’ll beat Johnny Walker, and everybody will say he was a one-trick pony, he wasn’t as good as we through he was, and Corey Anderson still sucks. That’s just how they do me.
Corey Anderson
When I was 16 or 17, I remember kissing one of my first girlfriends, Kim Anderson, under a stairwell at Disneyland. I’ll never forget that feeling.
John Stamos
Look what happened when I fought Anderson Silva. It can’t possibly get worse than that. I’ve already seen the bottom and it wasn’t that bad. I made it through. I survived. It’s fighting. It’s not the end of the world.
Forrest Griffin
Derek Brunson is aggressive, knows how to close the distance, but couldn’t do anything against Anderson.
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
I know Bea Arthur left the Pam Anderson roast really early, but it could have been because she was half dead; I don’t know.
Lisa Lampanelli
There’s a camaraderie that comes with this sport, but fighting Anderson Silva is a lot like eating Chinese food: twenty minutes after I do it, I’m going to want to do it again.
Chael Sonnen
I think Woody Allen calls it ‘anxiety of influence.’ When you’re in your formative years and you watch a movie that makes you want to make movies… For Wes Anderson, it’s Truffaut. I’m sure for P.T. Anderson it was Scorsese and Jonathan Demme.
Max Winkler
If Katie Couric or Anderson Cooper asked me to come on to their shows and give them content every single day, I would do it because that gives me access to a huge population of people that I can hopefully, in some way, plant seeds in fertile soil, and those seeds would grow into oak trees of freedom.
Tim Kennedy
What’s nice about a lot of Wes Anderson’s films is that there’s a patience to it. I think that patience brings out a lot more funny things that you would miss otherwise if you just had to make quick cuts and keep the pace, whatever that pace is that bigger budget comedies have to have.
Wyatt Cenac
I had an issue with dyslexia before they understood what dyslexia was. One of my teachers, Mrs. Anderson, taught me to look at it like a curveball. The ball breaks the same way every time. Once you get used to it, you can handle it pretty well.
John T. Chambers
I love movies where you can tell who’s directed it even before the credits roll in, like Wes Anderson or Quentin Tarantino. People who make very stylized types of film.
Ella Purnell
Imagine Chael Sonnen walking into Chute Boxe and training with Wanderlei Silva, Anderson Silva, or any of the coaches. Do you think they would have let him train after all the things he said about Brazil? No. They would have defended Brazil’s honor.
Cris Cyborg
Myself, Karl Anderson, and Luke Gallows are best friends. We travel together, we train together, we eat together, and we do a lot of things together.
Finn Balor
I always watch Anderson Silva and I always watch his fighting style.
Derek Brunson
I remember watching Anderson Silva fight Dan Henderson at UFC 82. I had never really watched MMA, but I looked up to Dan Henderson. He was a wrestler, like me, but also a tough, powerful mixed martial artist.
Chris Weidman
You can’t ever really replace Jon Anderson because he’s been such a force in the music business.
Chris Squire
I’m not besotted with the notion of being on CNN to the point that I’m going to suddenly morph into Anderson Cooper or Christiane Amanpour. I’m not a foreign correspondent.
Anthony Bourdain
Uriah Hall is on the level of Anderson Silva’s striking.
Derek Brunson
To become a world champion, to defeat Anderson Silva, to accomplish my goal in one night, it was a super surreal feeling.
Chris Weidman
If you’re on TV regularly, doing a thing regularly, whether you’re Anthony Anderson on ‘Black-ish’ or Don Lemon, an hour a night, you have to turn into, ‘What’s the delivery system through which I can deliver information?’ I don’t mean they are being fake or that they are doing something that’s disingenuous.
W. Kamau Bell
Like the way Anderson Silva does it – have a fight at 205 every once in a while and always make 185, his weight class.
Benson Henderson
I never have met any heroes – except one. The exception is Ian Anderson, flute player extraordinaire, creative musical talent for more than 40 years, and the man most associated with the band Jethro Tull.
Gavin Esler
I like to watch batsmen who will entertain and, as things stand, an opening spell from Jimmy Anderson is about as good as it gets.
Paul Scholes
They’re both southpaws, Anderson is good with counters and McGregor is good at straight punches.
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
I remember, after the Pamela Anderson roast, being told, ‘You’re sold out – you can add two more shows.’
Lisa Lampanelli
You can come up with all the gameplans that you want but the guys in the middle have to execute those plans. If Jimmy Anderson or Stuart Broad serves up a leg-stump half-volley, you can’t turn round and blame Andy Flower.
Glenn McGrath
There are lot of people I’d wanna work with, but Wes Anderson, I would just wanna sit down with the guy. If he would ever put me in one of his movies, that would be the end.
Thomas Middleditch
Sports-entertainment has provided me with many blessings, but nothing was ever more unpredictable and fun than hanging with Ric Flair, Barry Windham, Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard, who, in my opinion, are the greatest incarnation of The Four Horsemen and the most important faction to ever step into the ring.
Jim Ross
My friend Anderson Cooper is the scion of one of America’s great shipping and railroad families, the Vanderbilts.
Kathy Griffin
When I first came in the league I wasn’t a really big watch guy. But then Ryan Anderson, who was really into watches, kinda got me into collecting them.
Brook Lopez
I would like to wrestle some guys again like Dolph Ziggler, Ken Anderson, and many others in the business.
Alberto Del Rio
I did a musical that I don’t think anybody ever saw, called ‘One Shining Moment,’ and in that cast was Megan Mullally and Kevin Anderson.
Alan Ruck
I really like dramas that have a tone of comedy in them or the opposite, and those are done by people like Alexander Payne and Jason Reitman but also Spike Jonze and David O. Russell and Paul Thomas Anderson, the Coen Brothers.
Jason Bateman
The difference between Marilyn Monroe and the early Pamela Anderson is not that great. What’s amazing is that the taste of American men and international tastes in terms of beauty have essentially stayed the same. Styles change, but our view of beauty stays the same.
Hugh Hefner
Anderson is a really lively guy, a really cheerful guy.
