I thought I’d be spending my life making brooms, mops, chairs and things. That’s fine for some blind people, but I wanted something more out of life. Music seemed the best way.

One reason I left local news was that I was tired of the constant musical chairs among news directors.

Ridley Scott

Anthony Marra
People rich enough to redecorate every 10 months are certainly careless with antique furniture. I found four 1760 French side chairs, tapestry seats intact. Claiming them proved easier than persuading any cabdriver to transport the things.

You know how on movie sets there are specific chairs for each person? I hate that. We don’t have names on our chairs. We have five chairs. Anyone can sit on them. I think the idea of names on chairs on a set is terrible. It’s so dumb. So we got rid of that.

I go to a wrestling match, and I love it. But at a wrestling match, on every level – that includes Division I – you go into an empty and cold gym, you roll out a mat, and you set 10 chairs up on each side. That’s a dual meet, and it’s very hard to act like it’s a big event.
Chael Sonnen

Marcel Wanders
I’m not going to throw chairs; I’m not going to cuss. I’m not going to do that kind of stuff, because you don’t have to do that. You don’t have to act like that, and you don’t have to live like that in order to be successful.

I have high heels in my bags if I need them for a shoot. But I like sneakers. I like being comfortable. I like to sit on the floor with my team and work. I don’t like to sit in fancy chairs. It’s really important to the culture of my company that people understand who they’re working for.
Bobbi Brown
If Jesus had been killed twenty years ago, Catholic school children would be wearing little electric chairs around their necks instead of crosses.

I feel pain everywhere. A lot of guys in chairs do feel their legs. But if you don’t, there’s a thing called disreflex, so you know if something happens, say, you can’t feel your foot or your leg and your body reacts. You know something’s not right and you survey what’s going on.
Mark Zupan

Douglas Adams
Dining rooms are really all about the table and the chairs.
Candice Olson
I learned how to cover race riots by telephone. They didn’t pay me enough at my first newspaper job to venture onto the grounds of South Boston High School when bricks were being thrown.

Gwen Ifill

I’ve got one of those over-stuffed leather chairs from the Pottery Barn. It faces north.

Mike Rowe
Musical chairs or Russian roulette? Sometimes there’s as much tense drama in the casting of a Hollywood movie as there is in the finished product.
Richard Corliss
The funny thing is that my husband couldn’t be sweeter. He looks like this bad boy. He’s got tattoos and earrings and a mohawk, but when you talk to him and he’s around you, he’s such a gentleman. He holds doors for ladies. He pulls out chairs. He cooks. He cleans.

Sheila Heti
I used to be a writer with superstitions worthy of a professional baseball player: I needed a certain desk chair and a certain armchair and a certain desk arrangement, and I could only get really useful work done between 8 P.M. and 3 A.M. Then I started to move, and I couldn’t bring my chairs with me.
