Alexander Hamilton started the U.S. Treasury with nothing, and that was the closest our country has ever been to being even.
Will Rogers
Under the leaden sway of Alexander III’s government, the silence of the graveyard prevailed. Russian society, equally discouraged by the collapse of all hopes for peaceful reforms and by the apparent ineffectiveness of the revolutionary movement, was in the grip of a mood of depression and resignation.

Patrick Kane
I’m for fighting a war on terrorism, not a war in Southwest Asia that Alexander the Great couldn’t win, the British Empire couldn’t win, the Soviet Union couldn’t win. That’s stupid. It’s a waste of resources; a waste of America’s best and brightest.
Kurt Schrader

Marvin Ammori
Find a poet whose style you like, emulate that style, then deal with things that you know about – don’t waste your time looking for your own style.’ I wish I could remember who told me that, because I’d like to congraulate him. I’ve emulated all the old guys – Tennyson, Alexander Pope.

Denise Lewis
I would have played any character in an Alexander Payne movie.
Judy Greer
Alexander Wang is a young designer, and his style is so profound. He took sports and street and kind of combined it into upscale high fashion. He made a white T-shirt a luxury.
Oh, Alexander Hamilton fell short of his best self every now and again, and he still managed to do these wonderful things – well, so do I. So what am I capable of?
Leslie Odom, Jr.
I want the little lassies who are thinking of going to a nightclub in Cardiff to stop to see what that guy’s screaming for, or Grandma to put her knitting down to see why that guy’s chatting about Alexander the Great. I’m after pulling in, whether it’s in Manila, Beijing or whatever, the biggest possible audience.
Sid Waddell
I think people will say, ‘You know what? That Shaun Alexander, he did all right when he was here.
Shaun Alexander
I love all Helmut Lang. I love Alexander Wang and Alice+Olivia.
Addison Timlin
Travis Alexander was a good guy. Was he a saint? No. But he was somebody who was really, really invested in helping other people and making this world a better place. Everything he did, even the car he drove, was a sign of him trying to be a force for good in this world.
Jane Velez-Mitchell
This was in June, 1866. Frank wrote for me to come to him at once, and although my own wound was still very bad, I started immediately and stayed with him at the house of Mr. Alexander Severe, in Nelson county, until he recovered, which was in September.
Jesse James
Listen to what I’m saying: I’m back. Junior Dos Santos, Alexander Volkov, or revenge against Stipe Miocic. That fight, I didn’t do well, and I really want to fix it.
Francis Ngannou

A movie that I’ve seen probably the most is ‘Fanny & Alexander,’ the Ingmar Bergman movie. I even dragged my friends to the super long version that had an intermission. I don’t know how much they liked me that day.
Gillian Jacobs
Lloyd Alexander’s tales were written and published when I was in diapers. Decades later, they remain utterly timeless for me. I cannot recommend them enough.
James A. Moore
I am a California girl, born and raised, so flip-flops and cutoff shorts are my go-to look. An easy Angeleno uniform, so to speak. But for my role on ‘Suits,’ I’m dressed in Alexander McQueen, Tom Ford, and Prada almost every day. And therein lies the difference. For work, I wear art; in real life, I wear clothes.
Meghan Markle
I like Stella McCartney, Chloe, Alexander McQueen, Aaron Featherstone, normal Chanel if I can ever afford it, I’d be wearing that all the time! I like to admire from afar.
Brittany Snow

Daniel Dubois
Fanny and Alexander’ blew me away. I was visiting my sister in her first year at university. It was my first foray into something dark.

Charles A. Beard
Walking the runway with Alexander McQueen, I really had to dig deep. You’re with Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. I was the first person out on the runway, but I thought, ‘I have done the Olympics, I can do this.’
Aimee Mullins
Alexander Wang has been one of my favorite designers since I was younger.
Selah Louise Marley
Alexander Graham Bell brought us the telephone. He owns the telephones in the buildings. Thomas Edison owns the lightbulb. Whether they took it and did things to improve it, he’s the guy. Now on the dance floor, that belongs to Chubby Checker.
Chubby Checker
One globe seemed all too small for the youthful Alexander.
‘Alexander, Who’s Trying His Best to Be the Best Boy Ever’ was inspired by a combination of my grandson, my son, and myself – all those times when each of us has decided that we’re just not going to get into trouble anymore. But it’s so hard to be good all of the time!
Judith Viorst
I’ve had two owners – Jim Dolan and Les Alexander in Houston. Both were terrific. They wanted to win badly and gave you the resources to win.
Jeff Van Gundy
Alexander Payne’s very specific. His scripts are always complete when you start working on them.
Kathy Bates
My favourite designer was Alexander McQueen. His lines were different every time.
Grigor Dimitrov
Daniel Tarullo has more power of the U.S. banking system than anybody since Alexander Hamilton. That’s not an exaggeration, by the way.

When you see an Alexander McQueen fashion show, you are taken on a journey. It’s surreal.
Josephine de La Baume
Would Alexander, madman as he was, have been so much a madman, had it not been for Homer?
Samuel Richardson
I honestly never wanted to direct. It was only when I started to work on ‘Alexander the Great’ that I realized I had to direct. I saw something so specifically in my mind, I could not leave it to someone else.
Christopher McQuarrie
Everybody knows that Alexander Hamilton was a founding father of the United States, a young father to be sure: only thirty at the time of the Constitutional Convention and just turned thirty-eight when he left behind his brilliant career as Secretary of the Treasury.
Edmund Morgan
I love designer stuff but like it will only be like, on a whim. I love Alexander Wang so much, but it’s expensive.
Ellie Goulding
My go-to shoes for everyday would probably have to be either my white Converse that I’ve had since high school or my black Alexander McQueen flats with the skull on the top. It depends on my day.
Katherine Schwarzenegger
He considers the theatrical version of Fanny and Alexander an amputated version of what his original film was, and he doesn’t really like the shorter film.
Bille August
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
In 1817, Czar Alexander I personally founded the Society of Israelite Christians but had less luck defeating Judaism than he’d had defeating Napoleon; gentile serfs and merchants in areas bordering the Pale even showed disturbing new signs of ‘Judaizing.’
Tom Reiss
Alexander II really used autocracy well to negotiate the freeing of the serfs in 1861.
Simon Sebag Montefiore
I, Alexander B. Campbell, make this statement of the cause of my death to relieve the coroner of the necessity of an inquest, and also let my friends know the motive that led me to take my own life.
Alex Campbell
Ultimately, Lloyd Alexander’s tales of Prydain were enough to make me come back and visit again and again, and each time, I laughed and I wept. Each time. No exceptions.
James A. Moore
I wasn’t creative enough to imagine my first novel becoming a film directed by Alexander Payne. Nor did I consider the possibility of seeing Hollywood stars moving through my personal version of Hanalei town: going to Tahiti Nui, rehearsing a scene in front of my cousin’s cottages, driving the snaky roads.
Kaui Hart Hemmings
When I started at Bloomingdale’s as a buyer, Alexander’s was a discounter across the street, and every time Alexander’s had something that we had at Bloomingdale’s, we’d have to meet price. I didn’t really want to be in a business where I had no control over my inventory, the value of my inventory.
Mickey Drexler
I have one coach and one coach only. His name is Alexander Vetrov. They brought him in for me when I joined the Bolshoi. He was a dancer with the Bolshoi, and we work very intensely together.
David Hallberg
I love so many directors. I love David O. Russell. I love David Fincher, I love Alexander Payne and Jane Campion and my aunt. Spike Jonze. There are just so many amazing directors.
Gia Coppola
I don’t have a favourite designer because I feel every designer offers something different and special, but I do really like Alexander Wang, Burberry, Stella McCartney and Balmain.
Jourdan Dunn
I love Alexander McQueen. I like the construction of his suits. I think it’s fantastic.
Donatella Versace
Today’s uses of the Second Amendment may invoke James Madison and Alexander Hamilton, but they have a lot more to do with interest-group politics.
Cass Sunstein
For me, back in Sydney, it was just being there and going out and beating Alexander Karelin, 13-time world champion and Olympic gold medalist. It was everything for me.
Rulon Gardner
Innovation really is the life blood of our American economy… looking back at the stories of Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, and the Wright Brothers, you look at emergence to technology innovation and what it has done for our economy. We need to continue that.
Dan Lipinski
Through the eight books in ‘The Treasure Chest’ series, readers will meet twins Maisie and Felix and learn the secrets and rules of time travel, where they will encounter some of these famous and forgotten people. In Book 1, Clara Barton, then Alexander Hamilton, Pearl Buck, Harry Houdini, and on and on.
Ann Hood
I played at RB Leipzig from 2013 to 2015, and my coach was Alexander Zorniger. He was a coach who was very focused on the details. He did a lot of analytics and we were focused at Leipzig on the play against the ball.
Joshua Kimmich
I was an early reader, reading even before kindergarten, and since we did not have books in my home, my older brother, Alexander, was responsible for our trip every week to the public library to exchange books already read for new ones to be read.
Rosalyn Sussman Yalow
ThinThread was not the program of record of my predecessor, Ken Minihan, OK. I did not make ThinThread the program of record while I was director. After I left in 2005, Keith Alexander also chose not to make ThinThread the program of record.
Michael Hayden
It’s good to see Graham Alexander back in the game. He was such a tremendous professional as a player so I know he’ll give management his best shot.
Neil Warnock
One of my fantasies in my life has been that I was granted access with a camera to go back in time, and to film the actual campaign of Alexander crossing into India through Iran and Persia.
Oliver Stone
Normally, if someone’s legacy will outlast their life, it’s apparent when they die. On the day when Alexander the Great, or Caesar Augustus, or Napoleon, or Socrates, or Muhammad died, their reputations were immense. When Jesus died, his tiny, failed movement appeared clearly at an end.
John Ortberg
The first devices to record and play back music were the phonograph and the gramophone. The gramophone’s inventor: Alexander Graham Bell.
Marvin Ammori
I love Alexander Wang!
Taylor Momsen
I will not become a Napoleon nor an Alexander, and labour for my own ambition; but I will labour for freedom and for the moral well-being of man.
Lajos Kossuth
I shop everywhere from Maxfield to antique stores. I love Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood, and I love vintage. Golyester has the best selection of mint things and dead stock. I collect 1940s to 1970s platform shoes, and that’s where I got a few of my best ones.
Kat Von D
I live in a lot of Alexander McQueen.
Stephanie Winston Wolkoff
Many people suggest using mathematics to talk to the aliens, and Dutch computer scientist Alexander Ollongren has developed an entire language (Lincos) based on this idea. But my personal opinion is that mathematics may be a hard way to describe ideas like love or democracy.
Seth Shostak
Alexander at the head of the world never tasted the true pleasure that boys of his own age have enjoyed at the head of a school.
Horace Walpole
Alexander Rusev is one of the most incredible things I’ve seen in my entire 30-year career. He’s a ferocious monster.
William Regal
Alexander Wang, Saint Laurent, Balmain, and Goyard are my designers of choice.
I’m not really in touch with those ‘Seinfeld’ lads except Jason Alexander.
Wayne Knight
I like edgy but classic looks – like Chanel mixed with Alexander McQueen. My personal style is edgier. My closet is just black, gray, and white. I’m more comfortable in darker colors and leather jackets.
Ashley Benson
To have come here as an intern for the ‘Today’ show, to shoot that reel – I looked so serious. To be terrified like that and then to come and sit at this desk, to sit next to my friend Peter Alexander every Saturday, it is the honor of a lifetime.
Kristen Welker
I love working with Alexander Skarsgard. He brings such gravity to a scene.
Nelsan Ellis
The team I support is Manchester City. And that’s because a friend of mine, who I visited when I was in England, Alexander Zinchenko, plays for them.
Oleksandr Usyk
Let’s see: I’m into a whole bunch of different people – Alexander Wang… that’s my dude.
Theophilus London
Alexander Payne is one of those directors who is completely in charge and knows exactly what he wants, which is really fun. It’s fun when a director is very specific. He knows totally the tone that he’s going for. It makes it easier than if everyone’s just guessing and trying to figure it out.
Rob Huebel
I’m sure there are many more people who can identify with failure and hardship in life than with the success of an Alexander Hamilton or a John D. Rockefeller.
Ron Chernow
Definitely, I did not, after ‘SNL,’ say, ‘OK, first I’ll go be in Alexander Payne’s movie.’ I thought I might go back to writing, to be honest.
Will Forte
I tend to gravitate toward Proenza Schouler and Alexander Wang. Their designs are accessible and easy.
Liya Kebede
There are certain people who elicit a really passionate response. It’s crazy. That’s my Alexander Wang theory.
Taylor Swift
I think my heart always goes out to men at the peak of their celebrity who checked out. There’s such an odd, horrible trend in my lifetime for it – Kurt Cobain, David Foster Wallace, Alexander McQueen, Heath Ledger.
Chuck Palahniuk
I felt somehow for many years that George Washington and Alexander Hamilton just left me out by mistake. But through the process of amendment, interpretation, and court decision, I have finally been included in ‘We, the people.’
Barbara Jordan
When I was asked to do a song from ‘In the Heights’ at the White House in 2009, I chose instead to do ‘Alexander Hamilton’ because I felt like I was meeting a moment.
Lin-Manuel Miranda
It was also wonderful to have the prospect of playing with Jack Nicholson. It was a terrific part, a terrific script, with Alexander Payne and Jack Nicholson. You can’t get any better than that!
Kathy Bates
In the fall of 1943 we brought home our second son, whom we named Alexander.
Harpo Marx
‘Born to play? Hmmm. Probably Romeo… or Hamlet, I guess. Also, I’d be a great Alexander the Great.
David Carradine
I have three man crushes: Kit Harington, Ryan Gosling, and Alexander Skarsgard.
Ryan Hurd
My partner, Beth Alexander, and I want to produce smaller films, but commercially viable films that will enable me to make the kinds of movies I want to make.
Stanley Tucci
Pergamon, a prosperous city in western Anatolia, was fabled to have been founded by Hercules’ son. Like many Hellenistic cities populated by Greeks who intermarried with indigenous people, Pergamon after Alexander the Great’s death (323 B.C.) had evolved a hybrid of democracy and Persian-influenced monarchy.
Adrienne Mayor
When I said I could beat Alexander Gustafsson in a standup fight, people laughed at me. They thought, ‘No way.’ But I believe in what I’m seeing every day.
Daniel Cormier
You’re only great if you win. I mean, Alexander wasn’t Alexander the Mediocre or Alexander the Average. He was Alexander the Great, and there’s a reason for it.
Shannon Sharpe
If we are going to remove someone, which I have no problem with doing, then let’s do the 20, not the 10, the very first secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton.
James Lankford
Yes, I am Canadian, having sailed here from England on a Russian boat called the Alexander Pushkin when I was the ripe old age of 4.
David Hewlett
When you look at the light bulb above you, you remember Thomas Alva Edison. When the telephone bell rings, you remember Alexander Graham Bell. Marie Curie was the first woman to win the Nobel Prize. When you see the blue sky, you think of Sir C.V. Raman.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
The story of Alexander Hamilton lends itself to hip-hop treatment. Hamilton’s personality is driven and unrelenting, and the music has that same quality. The music and the man mirror each other.
Ron Chernow
Conservative statesmen from Alexander Hamilton to Ronald Reagan sometimes supported protectionism, and at other times, they leaned toward lowering barriers. But they always understood that trade policy was merely a tool for building a strong and independent country with a prosperous middle class.
Robert Lighthizer
I loved ‘About Schmidt’. I like Alexander Payne’s work a lot.
Meghan Daum
The new generation of designers, like Prabal Gurung and Alexander Wang, have hundreds of thousands following them on social media who will probably never be able to afford their dresses but still feel a loyalty to them. So when that designer writes a book or launches a beauty line, they might pick that up.
Eva Chen
I would love to work with Quentin Tarantino – he’s my number one. My ultimate. I would love to work with Paul Thomas Anderson, Alexander Payne – Pedro Almodovar wouldn’t be too shabby. There are so many good directors, but those are some of my favorites.
Kirsten Dunst
I have this arsenal of high-waisted wide-leg ’70s pants and overalls. They are more roller-disco than Alexander Wang overalls.
Sophia Amoruso
I think someone like Khandi Alexander, who’s now on ‘Treme,’ is one of the most extraordinary actresses I’ve seen in years. But she’s dependent on someone brilliant like David Simon to realize that and to give her a forum. Tyler Perry’s not interested in that kind of nuance because it doesn’t sell.
Hilton Als
As Alexander Hamilton said in ‘The Federalist Papers,’ law is about the exercise of judgment and not will. Judicial activism is best understood as substituting judicial opinion for the command of law. The law is not an infinitely malleable tool.
Edwin Meese
Alexander Gonzalez Inarritu is a great director. He’s the one I first worked with. He’s amazing.
Gael Garcia Bernal
