Memory is a code to who we are, a collection of not jus

Memory is a code to who we are, a collection of not just dates and facts but also of epic emotional struggles, epiphanies, transformations.
David Grann
Tom Ford gave me high heels for the baby. They’re a little kitten heel with a velvet rope that you tie. It’s like a collection piece. I have to put it on the bookshelf, framed.
Julia Restoin Roitfeld
I grew up listening to my mother’s collection of Hank Williams, George Jones and Marty Robbins records.
Keith Whitley
There’s this perception that I’ve got this huge collection of old cars. I don’t.
James May
I’m just really happy. Really satisfied with my whole medal collection.
Nino Schurter
Quite a few of The Rolling Stones records have had a great honesty about them. In fact, I would put them side-by-side with a ‘Treasury of Folk Music’ collection, containing all the prison songs, the farm and road-gang songs that were recorded on the spot in the Deep South.
Henry Mancini
The distinction is large in my mind. The gay police captain is eventually going to be wearing hot pants and singing ‘YMCA.’ The police captain who happens to be gay is going to be a huge collection of personality characteristics and motivations.
Andre Braugher
I have a collection of vintage sundresses, and I’ve never worn them because for some reason I always opt for shorts and a t-shirt. I wish I could commit to them. I will. I have a few really great pieces I’ve been holding onto for years.
Tatiana Maslany
I think an art collection is a lot like a diary. Your taste evolves with time. I try to never sell anything, because it’s part of my journey.
Delphine Arnault
My contemporary art collection began with just needing to put things on the wall. I was looking around my Victorian house thinking, ‘What would be the coolest is contemporary art – it will make me look young and interesting.’ I’m more than 80 percent skeptical of the whole thing.
Hugh Grant
I love jeans and T-shirts, but for red carpets, I like Oscar de la Renta, who is timeless. Marchesa celebrates the female form in an ethereal way. Donna Karan does an Urban Zen collection, which is eco-friendly. I love socially conscious fashion.
Serinda Swan
Jeff Smith was the Julia Child of my generation. When his television show, ‘The Frugal Gourmet,’ made its debut on PBS in the 1980s, it conveyed such genuine enthusiasm for cooking that I was moved for the first time to slap down cold cash for a collection of recipes.
Alton Brown
I have this data bank garbage can in the back of my head that is an emotional collection of events that have occurred in my life.
Gary Sherman
The GRU is used for both tactical intelligence collection in the battlefield in support of Russian military operations and also strategic active measures or psychological warfare overseas.
Dmitri Alperovitch
I am a museum curator when I am not on the television and in our collection at Kensington Palace we have a book like Marie Antoinette’s, which belonged to the daughters of George III.
Lucy Worsley
After dinner I’ll catch up with emails. And when I’m lying in bed, I think about the next collection. That makes me sound insane, doesn’t it? That I’m getting into bed with David Beckham and thinking about clothes?
Victoria Beckham
In the absence of willpower the most complete collection of virtues and talents is wholly worthless.
Aleister Crowley
Almost every collection I do has 200 different references. I don’t have two of the same coat, two of the same dress. I have it in one color, in one fabric. I’ve tried to adapt the culture of couture, and the know-how and the heritage, but I try to update it.
Alber Elbaz
Whenever my dad wasn’t practicing, he was listening to music. He had an amazing jazz collection, and my mom had stuff like Chaka Khan to help balance it out.

Jean Paul Gaultier
No collection without compensation.
Jeff Rich
Science is not a collection of facts; it is a process of discovery.

Trump’s campaign is not a collection of ignorant statements. It is a candidacy of hate and fear that poses serious risks to people of color, women, people with disabilities, immigrants, and LGBTQ people.
Sarah McBride
My debut book is a collection of personal stories and advice about communication on the Internet. More specifically, the downfall of communication because of the Internet.
Franchesca Ramsey
I don’t collect books just because other people collect them, and I’m not going to have books in my collection if I think it’s badly written.
Richard Prince
My suit collection is very diverse. I love my suit collection. But yeah, my casual wear’s more me. I actually pick out what I wear casually. My stylist does all of my suits, I need help in that category.
Bradley Beal
My father’s record collection was full of New Orleans music of all kinds. I used to listen to the radio in New York, and all there was on it at the time was Madonna and Michael Jackson, so it sort of passed me by.
Madeleine Peyroux
I grew up reading Updike. I remember being alarmed to find that he had published short stories by the time he was 22. I think ‘Pigeon Feathers’ was the first collection of stories I read. Only much later did I discover his non-fiction reviewing and art criticism.
Justin Cartwright
If there is a record I don’t have, I haven’t heard it yet. My collection is always growing, but I can’t really play it anywhere – no promoter is willing to pay for my crates of vinyl to fly with me, so I have a team of people to digitise it all.
Grandmaster Flash
I am generally a nostalgic person and super into the pop culture that I grew up on – I’ve got a framed ALF poster above my bed and a Mickey Mouse poster, and I’ve got this big VHS collection.
Kyle Mooney
People are told their rights when they’re arrested. Consumers getting collection letters are entitled to the same courtesy.
Gary Weiss
I love Polaroids and I have a Polaroid camera collection from the ’50s.
Jennifer Jason Leigh
Hiding at the back of every woman’s wardrobe, regardless of her age or shape, you’ll find a sad and sorry collection of all her fashion howlers and regrets.
Kate Garraway
We don’t have to eat the best food to survive: a basic diet will get us through. We wear clothes to stay warm and hide our modesty, they don’t need to be the latest designer collection.
Laura Whitmore
I lived in Boston for three years, and during that time, I wrote my first collection of stories, ‘What the World Will Look Like When All the Water Leaves Us;’ other stories that didn’t make it into the collection; and several failed novel openings.
Laura van den Berg
But I’m interested in the Barnes Collection in Philadelphia. I hear there are some of the worst Matisses there. I like seeing bad art by good artists. It’s inspiring. I’m able to identify with them. It makes them real.
Jemima Kirke
My wardrobe is really colorful, and since hats are my favorite accessory, I have a big collection of them.
Sasha Pivovarova
When I was young we had a collection for the Welsh disaster at Aberfan and we also had a school campaign for Biafra. It is a wake-up call for kids – a way of understanding that it’s not all ‘Blue Peter’ for everyone and that maybe they can help.
Lenny Henry
I make 98% of my collection in New York City and am generating jobs, so fashion isn’t just frivolous for me. I understand levity about it. I also understand the depth of it.
Prabal Gurung
Look, have whatever in your collection at home, but everybody needs a little Friday night. And really, that is Chic.
Bernard Edwards
But in this case people have hundreds and hundreds of animals, they have a menagerie. You can’t possibly love that many animals. So, it’s more about the ego and the pride of having all of these things sort of like a car collection or a gun collection.
Eric Goode
The squat is ideal for building strength in the glutes, perhaps the most powerful collection of muscles in our bodies.
Gabe Kapler
Creating a book and creating a collection involve a lot of editing.
Anna Sui
My first collection of poems was published by Bloodaxe Books, which was then a very new imprint.
Helen Dunmore
Garnishments tend to happen when people hide from their debts and stop making even minimum payments. Eventually, creditors sell the debt to a collection agency.
Jean Chatzky
WCC is not an arbitrator, it’s a collection of people who represent and protect the interest of women in cinema. We are an organisation that facilitates solutions for a just work space and don’t see ourselves as arbitrators of justice.
Padmapriya Janakiraman
When Ralph Lauren creates a collection of clothes, he’s not really worried about a single tie or a single shirt or a single belt… he’s creating a movie, and the characters that he casts in his advertisements or the people that work in the stores are the actors in his life.
David Lauren
I’m not a fan of Dr. Seuss’s better-known work, but his fables leave me awe-struck. ‘Ten Tall Tales’ is a collection of stories where his trademark anarchy is combined with a tautness of writing that shines an affectionate yet uncompromising spotlight on some of the absurdities of human behaviour.
Giles Andreae
I’ve always dressed the same. I’ve never made a fashion mistake. I’ve always worn utilitarian. I started my collection because I wanted certain specific things, but before that it was vintage and classic Brooks Brothers.
Thom Browne
Since German reunification in 1990, historians and researchers have been free to work in the East, where the lost Nazi art collection disappeared.
Stephen Kinzer
A battery by definition is a collection of cells. So the cell is a little can of chemicals. And the challenge is taking a very high-energy cell, and a large number of them, and combining them safely into a large battery.
Elon Musk
The art galleries of Paris contain the finest collection of frames I ever saw.
Humphry Davy
My grandfather once ventured upon publishing a volume of hymns. I never heard anyone speak in their favour or argue that they ought to have been sung in the congregation. In that volume, he promised a second if the first should prove acceptable. We forgive him the first collection because he did not inflict another.
Charles Spurgeon
When you are proud of something you have done, and you have made a film you feel has merit, and it’s found an audience and is critically well received, that’s a pretty pleasurable place to be. I mean, you don’t want it gathering dust at the bottom of someone’s DVD collection.
Cate Blanchett
‘Super Troopers’ benefited from the old way of watching films, the way we watched at Colgate, when you went to someone’s house, looked at their DVD collection, and then just picked one.
Jay Chandrasekhar
I’ve always being interested in clothes – and I’m also the curator of a significant dress collection with 12,000 objects in it – the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection at Kensington Palace.
Lucy Worsley
I’d say that in place of a singular phobic-level terror, I keep a whole collection of running, yet manageable, fears.
Nathan Englander
Art, like real estate, is half science, half gut. We go to a lot of art fairs. We have two full-time art experts who help me make all the decisions about how to build the corporate and personal collection and what we put in our developments. We don’t let interior designers pick art for us.
Jorge M. Perez
At every turn, Molly Antopol’s gorgeous debut story collection, ‘The UnAmericans,’ is firing on multiple cylinders.
Jesmyn Ward
When developing intelligence assessments, initial tactical reports often require additional collection and validation.
Gina Haspel
I made a specific choice not to call my collection Ivanka. There’s so much value in the Trump name. And there’s such a deep connection to luxury and success.
Ivanka Trump
What else does anyone have except for a collection of slightly painful memories?
Ed Weeks
My dad is a guitar player with huge vinyl record collection. I loved listening to his albums, especially Cream and The Yardbirds.
I’m the farthest thing from a bibliophile. I purge my collection regularly: If I haven’t read a book in a couple of years, I try to give it to someone who will.
H. W. Brands
I love fashion as much as I love basketball! It is a great joy for me to express myself through designing my own collection.
Hakeem Olajuwon
When I had started commuting into London for theatre school, I’d had to sell my uncle’s stamp collection for £300.
Prunella Scales
I have the world’s largest collection of seashells. I keep it on all the beaches of the world… perhaps you’ve seen it.
Steven Wright
Intelligence collection is not confined to the communications of adversaries or of the guilty. Rather, it’s about gaining information otherwise unavailable that would help keep Americans safe and free.
Michael Hayden
HBOS had robbed me of my marriage, my family, my businesses, my longstanding friend and business partner, my income, my investments, my self-respect, my reputation, my privacy, my physical and mental health. It cost me my security, my image rights, my collection of classic cars – and very nearly my life.
Noel Edmonds
Each of us carries within himself a collection of instant insults.
Haim Ginott
An Army is a collection of armed men obliged to obey one man. Every change in the rules which impairs the principle weakens the army.
William Tecumseh Sherman
I’m into Incubus. Growing up, I was a huge Taking Back Sunday fan. I’m still a fan, but I don’t listen as much as I used to. When I was 13 or 14, I started getting into emo-pop-rock, so that influenced me. I also love Drake… I have a pretty diverse collection.
Kendall Schmidt
The museum spreads its surfaces everywhere, and becomes an untitled collection of generalizations that mobilize the eye.
Robert Smithson
I’ve waited for a novel from Charles Yu with eager anticipation since being bowled over by his 2006 short story collection, ‘Third Class Superhero.’
Sarah Weinman
I’ve got a great collection of photography.
Elton John
The users are not going to be in the position of accepting what’s been collected; they’re going to be in the position of being able to demand collection.
Stephen Cambone
The Diesel team has incredible passion. We work for ourselves and design for ourselves. When I see a new watch in our collection, I go crazy. I want one of everything.
Renzo Rosso
Well, Detroit Institute is kind of a key – probably the largest permanent collection of puppets in the US.
Jim Henson
A museum has to renew its collection to be alive, but that does not mean we give on important old works.
David Rockefeller
Having a collection of regrets when you hit your 40s is part of the deal.
John Rzeznik
My ideas for the next collection always happen a couple of months before the show. I have learned to shut up and not bother my assistants with it.
Raf Simons
‘Luncheon of the Boating Party,’ owned by The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., has served Americans as a symbol of France and French culture, both of which I love, and is as evocative and triumphant an image as that other emissary of France, the Statue of Liberty.
Susan Vreeland
We’re not waiting for the fashion cycle to have 180 buyers come in and see the collection and go, ‘We like it, we’ll buy it, and we’ll have it in June.’ The only one we’re selling to is Net-A-Porter, and the rest is through our site.
Matthew Williamson
I am making a collection of the things my opponents have found me to be and, when this election is over, I am going to open a museum and put them on display.
Lyndon B. Johnson
I have never had other kids in the house… I had a huge collection of marbles, and they all had names, which I think concerned my parents. I used to go and sweep outside and talk to myself, and my mum’s friends would be over and say, ‘Do you realise she is talking to herself?’
Alexandra Adornetto
I do myself up kind of like a doll. I have a doll collection and I look at their outfits and kind of imitate them.
Taylor Momsen
A dapper Canadian in his mid-fifties, Rob McEwen bought the disparate collection of gold mining companies known as Goldcorp in 1989. A decade later, he’d unified those companies and was ready for expansion – a process he wanted to start by building a new refinery.
Peter Diamandis
If you’re going dressier, something like the black dress from my Very collection is great, especially for a second date. It’s perfect for meeting his friends, because it’s nice and simple, but it has a cheeky waist to show him a little bit extra.
Rochelle Humes
I love theatrical props: a cup filled with solid fake tea, say, or a collection of fake food, including a rubber turkey, which, during the holidays, I wrap in tinfoil so it appears to have just come out of the oven.
Amy Sedaris
I think every celebrity that I love wears my shoes. I’m a particular fan of Julianne Moore, and I adore Jennifer Lawrence. There are so many beautiful women. I love Poppy Delevingne, of course; I even made a collection with her.
Edgardo Osorio
To be human is to have a collection of memories that tells you who you are and how you got there.
Rosecrans Baldwin
If my closet were burning, it’d be my collection of jackets I would save – they always make me feel pulled-together.
Nina Garcia
Hidden biases in both the collection and analysis stages present considerable risks and are as important to the big-data equation as the numbers themselves.
Kate Crawford
I do not represent any product or any collection.
Charlotte Casiraghi
If you looked at my music collection and saw an album that was a soundtrack to a musical, it’s probably because I had bought it to learn the music so I could go and audition.
Carmen Cusack
My dad has a really great record collection that basically went up to the year I was born: 1984.
Ezra Koenig
In 2013, I started playing Fara Sherazi on ‘Homeland.’ I love playing her, not just because she’s a strong woman, but because for the first time, a Muslim woman is being portrayed on television as a regular person, rather than a cliche or collection of stereotypes.
Nazanin Boniadi
I would never have thought my collection of short stories would win the Giller.
Lynn Coady
I have been obsessed with sunglasses for a very, very long time, so it was a natural fit for me to partner with Prive Revaux on my own collection.
Madelaine Petsch
A lot of designers get caught up in the creativity, but you’ve got to think about the legs of your collection – essentially, how the line is going to move forward.
Alexander Wang
I’m so excited – Bellamianta is a product I’ve used for years and years. I actually worked with Bellamianta even before Love Island so I’m really excited to have my own collection with them now. It is a dream come true really.
Maura Higgins
I’ve not been a prolific poet, and it always seemed to me to be a bad idea to feel that you had to produce in order to get… credits. Production of a collection of poems every three years or every five years, or whatever, looks good, on paper. But it might not be good; it might be writing on a kind of automatic pilot.
James Fenton
When I started at Loewe, I took a year out before we did a collection because I felt we needed to work out all the fundamentals. The pencils, the door handles, the style of the press release, the stone of the buildings, the choice of photographer.
Jonathan Anderson
The idea with a collection is sort of to begin with a kind of bang.
Robert Christgau
One of my great passions is the collection of historical trivia.
Lynn Abbey
Being deeply knowledgeable on one subject narrows one’s focus and increases confidence, but it also blurs dissenting views until they are no longer visible, thereby transforming data collection into bias confirmation and morphing self-deception into self-assurance.
Michael Shermer
I don’t have a collection, but I have a thing with jackets. I really like jackets. Whether it’s an ’80s motorbike jacket, or a Victorian jacket. I could wear the same jeans every day for months, but the jacket would be the thing that would change a lot.
Josephine de La Baume
I love YA, and it’s been a really good fit for me. But at some point, I would like to try something else: a collection of short stories, or writing about something other than high school. A lot has happened to me since I was eighteen.
Sarah Dessen
My goal is for a complete collection of ‘Squirrel Girl’ comics to be equivalent to a C.S. bachelor degree. Now there’s a comic that increases in value!
Ryan North
When we first began and I was 14, my influences were the stuff that was in my parent’s record collection like Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin.
Daniel Johns
The pret-a-porter collection will be the same as couture in essence: I love luxury, beautiful products, handmade with care, but at more accessible prices.
Stephane Rolland
I’m a fan of Adidas Originals. I love their Stan Smith collection.
Kartik Aaryan
The most terrifying thing I can think of is being alone – and I mean utterly alone, like no one else in the world alone – at night. That’s the nucleus of the first story in my collection and it’s also where the title came from for the book.
Paul Kane
My best sources are my travels and my collection of National Geographic.
Sergio Aragones
Almost any biographer, if he respects facts, can give us much more than another fact to add to our collection. He can give us the creative fact; the fertile fact; the fact that suggests and engenders.
Virginia Woolf
I’m not for the mass collection of data. I go the other way.
John F. Kelly
To love shoes is to love problems. Every season, starting a new collection is my greatest challenge. The blank slate in front of me, starting the process all over again, there is no greater challenge.
Giuseppe Zanotti
Science is not a collection of facts; it is a process of discovery.
Robert Zubrin
My design process never starts or finishes. I am always hoping to find something through the mere act of living my daily life. I do not work from a desk and do not have an exact starting point for any collection.
Rei Kawakubo
What we want Vrse to be is a collection of the best in class – the greatest cinematic VR that you can see, and a place that you can trust.
Chris Milk
I have quite a collection of ironic band T shirts.
Andrea Riseborough
I remember my mom had a big collection of copies of Saturday Evening Post magazines, and that was really my introduction to those great illustrators.
Thomas Kinkade
I have no idea what was the first record I ever bought, but I think I asked my mom to buy me… um… a collection of Beethoven when I was a little girl because I became very addicted to his music. It might have been piano sonatas.
Beth Hart
The idea of bringing color into the Super Brow collection was really inspired by seeing all our fans and followers posting colorful eyebrow pictures using our liquid lipsticks. I think that’s really cool because you know, the formula, although it’s not designed for the eye, it can work on an eyebrow.
Kat Von D
I made my final collection in college in London using Irish handwoven wool. That is how I discovered Ireland first; I just fell in love with it, really.
John Rocha
A sad fact of life lately at the Museum of Modern Art is that when it comes to group shows of contemporary painting from the collection, the bar has been set pretty low.
Jerry Saltz
I like to maintain my collection as a provocative collection that makes people think. While certainly my stamp will be visible on Black Fleece, it is meant for a wider audience.
Thom Browne
I’m super excited to be collaborating with JCPenney to create my first-ever capsule collection for that plus-size woman who needs that confidence and wants to be fabulous every day.
Ashley Nell Tipton
I think it’s important for whatever you are doing, even if it’s a collection, to seek outside advice. If your world becomes too insular, it limits your creativity.
Georgina Chapman
A good art collection is emblematic of the people collecting it.
David Furnish
I began by listening to my mother’s collection of Amelita Galli-Curci and Lily Pons records, and then was taken (at age eight) to hear Pons at a Met performance of Lakme. It was at that moment that I decided to become an opera star. Not just an opera singer, but an opera star!
Beverly Sills
I was 17 when I wrote a collection of short stories and wanted it published but it didn’t happen. A lot of publishing houses don’t allow young authors to enter into writing segments.
Kanika Dhillon
Though not a natural world by any means, more like a collection of living dioramas, a zoo exists in its own time zone, somewhere between the seasonal sense of animals and our madly ticking watch time.
Diane Ackerman
If I knew how to operate a DVR, you’d find episodes of ‘The Tavis Smiley Show,’ ‘Democracy Now!’ and lots of stuff from TV Land. What you can find now on my Hulu account are Korean soap operas, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and films from the Criterion collection.
T’Keyah Crystal Keymah
I was always pretty good with making deals. When I was in sixth grade, when Pokemon cards were hot, I might have started with, like, three or four cards, and then at the end of the year, through trading with my friends and everything, I ended up with the biggest card collection in my school.
Jimmy O. Yang
I like the idea of a fully realized collection with artists.
Virgil Abloh
I wanted to make a late-night-type show that happened to be in the morning for moms. Bravo was more interested in a blend of my books ‘Momzillas’ and ‘Sometimes I Feel Like a Nut,’ which is a collection of nonfiction essays.
Jill Kargman
In my experience, working as an intelligence analyst with my own pool of sources numbering close to 100, by far the most effective forms of human intelligence collection are rapport-building and direct questioning.
Chelsea Manning
I’ve come up with a bridal collection, and for Diwali, I’ve done really nice kadhas, long danglers, and fun-affordable daily wear pieces.
Neelam Kothari
A lot of new artists sign their deal and then go into a development stage for a year or two or sometimes never get out of it. For me, because I had been a working songwriter in town, I had a collection of songs that I was ready to make into an album. At the time, I didn’t realize it was becoming an album, but it was.
Maren Morris
I’m passionate and I travel the world not just as a tourist but to understand cultures… I’ve lived with Masai tribe… I travel the world and bring it back in the form of a research book that would become the starting point for the collection.
John Galliano
My film collection is all oldies.
George A. Romero
Dealers always like to sell chairs in sets of four, six, or eight. And they charge a premium for supplying the whole set. Individual chairs, though, go for much lower prices, and if you carry around a reference photo of the chairs you want, you may be able to build up a cut-price collection, chair by chair.
Judith Miller
I began by listening to my mother’s collection of Amelita Galli-Curci and Lily Pons records, and then was taken (at age eight) to hear Pons at a Met performance of Lakme. It was at that moment that I decided to become an opera star. Not just an opera singer, but an opera star!
Beverly Sills
To be human is to have a collection of memories that tells you who you are and how you got there.
Rosecrans Baldwin
Zaha Hadid’s Maxxi Museum is proof that Rome and contemporary architecture are no longer a paradox. The building is characteristic Hadid – with curving lines and organic shapes – and the permanent collection already boasts works by Francesco Clemente, William Kentridge, and Gerhard Richter.
Amanda Hearst
How many more school shootings do we need before we start talking about this as a social problem, and not merely a random collection of isolated incidents?
Jackson Katz
‘Avatar’ is the greatest, most comprehensive collection of movie cliches ever assembled, but it’s put together in a brand new way with a new technology, and tremendous imagination, making it a true epic and a kind of a milestone.
Joe Dante
Buenos Aires is easily one of the most stylish cities in the world with its eclectic collection of neighborhoods, each with its own unique charm.
Ben Elliot
I don’t listen to music, actually. Obviously I go to clubs; I stand in elevators; a lot of my friends are musicians; I hear music all the time. But I don’t have my own collection of music.
Natalia Kills
Film has always been a really good tool for me to communicate emotion about why I create a collection. I’m probably one of the first designers to make short films.
Ozwald Boateng
Intelligence is our first line of defense against terrorism, and we must improve the collection capabilities and analysis of intelligence to protect the security of the United States and its allies.
Saxby Chambliss
The New York Public Library is a wonderful gem. I go there to get away from the bustle of the city. They have an incredible collection of menus from all over the city.
Daniel Humm
My mother gave me a pair of diamond earrings when I was 13. It symbolised becoming a teenager. I also remember getting a collection of costume jewellery from my grandmother when I was in high school.
Erin Wasson
I have a collection of ukuleles. I meant to graduate to the guitar, but I never did.
Jacinda Ardern
When we first began and I was 14, my influences were the stuff that was in my parent’s record collection like Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin.
Daniel Johns
Every day, three times per second, we produce the equivalent of the amount of data that the Library of Congress has in its entire print collection, right? But most of it is like cat videos on YouTube or 13-year-olds exchanging text messages about the next Twilight movie.
Nate Silver
I have a collection of impractical vintage dresses and jackets. I guess I never grew out of the ‘playing dress up’ faze. It’s actually a bit of a problem.
Candice Accola
My parents’ record collection was the music I was hearing as long as I can remember, and I would play Otis Redding over and over again.
Jamie xx
The Lilac Rose Collection isn’t just about purple. It features dusty pinks and heather grays, which are more natural shades of purple and are perfect for creating a feminine smoky eye.
Bobbi Brown
After working on redesigning so many homes and using whatever furniture I could find, I am so excited to be designing my own collection of home furnishings that are stylish at a great price.
Christina Anstead
The men and women who occupied the east coast of North America between 1607 and 1800 have been more closely scrutinized than any other collection of people in American history.
Edmund Morgan
’12 Angry Men’ has a truly great collection of actors giving fantastic performances. It’s an acting masterclass.
David Harewood
Visible Faith is an expression of my Christian faith which must be visible to be real! I gave the name to the collection of musicians who worked with me on the record.
Ken Hensley
I’m super excited to be collaborating with JCPenney to create my first-ever capsule collection for that plus-size woman who needs that confidence and wants to be fabulous every day.
Ashley Nell Tipton
U.S. intelligence services routinely use collection methods against foreigners that foreseeably – with certainty – ingest high volumes of U.S. communications as well.
Barton Gellman
Binaries aside, we are the products of our relationships with our identities – cities we have built, bodies we have embraced, kindred souls we’ve cherished, our memories, our dreams, the fears we hide, the pain we hold – identities that cannot be reduced to a collection of labels.
Neri Oxman
Designers and musicians are primed to keep thinking forward. Once an album or collection launches, you can only think about doing the next one.
Chris Benz
Sultan Beyazid considered his father’s art collection decadent and ordered it sold at auction.
Stephen Kinzer
From a child I was fond of reading, and all the little money that came into my hands was ever laid out in books. Pleased with the ‘Pilgrim’s Progress,’ my first collection was of John Bunyan’s works in separate little volumes.
Benjamin Franklin
There’s a large percentage of mobile phones that now have a camera that’s with you a lot of the time, and there’s a lot of interest around those cameras as a data collection mechanism.
Rana el Kaliouby
My dad’s job was to manage apartment complexes, so when people would move out or when people would die or whatever, people left things in their apartments, he would always bring me home people’s collection of music that they left behind. I was excited because I didn’t really have money to go to the CD store all the time.
Kali Uchis
M*A*S*H’ was a collection of people, in front of and behind the cameras, that really clicked.
Alan Alda
I couldn’t afford to go to the record store to buy new tapes, so I’d tape everything off the radio. Just hit record when my song came on. I used to take my mom’s tapes and tape over them. I had a nice little collection. Had my own Stephen Jackson mixtapes off the radio!
Stephen Jackson
We had a really vast music collection and I was raised around rock’n’roll, it’s just the way it was.
If I’d been able to put the collection together in one go, say over two years, we’d have had a special team, most wouldn’t stay. One or two glory seasons and they were off. To them, the north-east was too far out. They wanted to be with the big hitters.
Bryan Robson
Growing up, I didn’t come from a musical family. Neither of my parents played an instrument, sang out loud, or listened to the radio with frequency. The record collection in the living room was only about 2 feet long – and that included 4 solid inches of Neil Diamond and Herb Alpert.
Amor Towles
One of the most untruthful things possible, you know, is a collection of facts, because they can be made to appear so many different ways.
Karl A. Menninger
No collection of people who are all waiting for the same thing are capable of holding a natural conversation. Even if the thing they are waiting for is only a taxi.
Ben Elton
I once knew a house rather like The Land of Smiles – an old house occupied by a varied collection of young people, mainly students. However none of these people were true models for the characters in the book, though their way of life may have been.
Margaret Mahy
Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen.
Albert Einstein
A collection of strong-minded individuals who have learned how to dismiss mistakes, disappointments and problems in their personal life make up a strong team. If the majority of the team have that then, as a unit, you are almost impossible to beat.
Gary Neville
The same time I’m designing my collection, I’m also designing my store. It has to have brand awareness, an identity. I’m also designing the racks and the hangers, and juggling a lot of things.
Kelly Wearstler
My favorite thing to do with my iPod was to shuffle my entire music collection and marvel at what songs came next. Sometimes the segues would be so perfect that it seemed a genius deejay was behind the wheel.
Steven Levy
The ‘Robben Island Bible’ has arrived at the British Museum. It’s a garish thing, its cover plastered with pink and gold Hindu images, designed to hide its contents. Within is the finest collection of words generated by human intelligence: the complete works of William Shakespeare.
Daniel Hannan
I love presentations more than fashion shows. I love speaking to people and walking them through the collection.
Christian Cota
We don’t want to bank all our risk on a small collection of big companies. We don’t want to lose 20 percent of our business if one big account goes away.
Jason Fried
I’ve always wanted to design a home collection line because growing up, I was obsessed with reorganizing my room.
Bethany Mota
You’re only as good as your last collection, which is an enormous pressure.
John Galliano
The AW14 collection is inspired by Film Noir. Elements of masculinity and femininity were reflected in the fabric, tailoring, and features.
Emilia Wickstead
I have on my bookshelf a series of books with opposite titles: ‘The Alpha Strategy’ and the ‘Omega Strategy’; ‘Asia Rising’ and ‘Asia Falling’; ‘Free to Choose’ and ‘Free to Lose’; ‘How to Win Friends and Influence People’ and ‘How to Lose Friends and Alienate People.’ Visitors love the collection.
Mark Skousen
I don’t put myself on Jeff Beck’s level, but I can relate to him when he says he’d rather be working on his car collection than playing the guitar.
Ritchie Blackmore
My grandfather once ventured upon publishing a volume of hymns. I never heard anyone speak in their favour or argue that they ought to have been sung in the congregation. In that volume, he promised a second if the first should prove acceptable. We forgive him the first collection because he did not inflict another.
Charles Spurgeon
If you have the opportunity to have the best of the artist, then if you overpay, it doesn’t matter. Eventually, the market will reward you. If it raises the value of our collection, we go for it.
Norman Braman
It could be that all awful dictators are frustrated artists – Mao with his poetry and Mussolini with his monuments. Stalin was once a journalistic hack, and I can personally testify to how frustrated they are. Pol Pot left a very edgy photo collection behind. And Osama seems quite interested in video.
P. J. O’Rourke
The Botanischer Garten in Berlin has one of Europe’s finer winter trails, leading in careful order from glasshouses devoted to African-American and Australian desert species, through a fine collection of tropical plants, and on to the orchid house.
John Burnside
I agree the SS 2014 collection from my own line comprising knee pads and polka dots didn’t feel too good but I’m proud of the fact that it was original.
Masaba Gupta
I often visit Maria Tatar’s ‘The Grimm Reader’ for a cold dose of courage. Her translations come from the Brothers Grimm, whose now-famous collection of ‘Kinder- und Hausmarchen’ (‘Children’s and Household Tales’) was first published in 1812. The book was not intended for young readers.
Kate Bernheimer
You get early inoculation against the idea of success if you’re a poet. When I published my first collection of sonnets, I sold about five copies; now kids study them for A level. Wanting to be successful in that other world of money or fame is not interesting. Poetry isn’t like that, and it never has been.
Tony Harrison
I was friends with all different people and all different groups. And that led me to being friends with a few people who didn’t even go to my school. Now I have the most amazing collection of friends of all ethnic backgrounds and upbringing and financial backgrounds.
James Maslow
I love things like the Criterion Collection DVDs. I think those are really well done. I like how far you can push the deluxe-ness of things like that.
Phil Elverum
My favorite days are the ones where I deal only with my own team, design, marketing, working on the next accessories collection.
Diane von Furstenberg
My mother and father are very involved with music. It’s completely part of their soul. They have an incredible record collection, all vinyl, of some of the best artists, in my eyes, that you can come across.
P. J. Harvey
‘Fitoor,’ in a way, signifies my journey through the years. It’s a collection of 10 songs that I have written. It’s basically about what I have been experiencing.
Mohit Chauhan
It is a pity that my collection of trophies contains not a single Russian.
Manfred von Richthofen
I didn’t grow up in one of those restrictive Christian households where you couldn’t do this or that. We were brought up with a great collection of good morals and good values, but we also had fun. We’d go to church on Sunday, but then have ice cream, roller skate or play in the park afterwards.
Yolanda Adams
I’m only waiting for Lindsay Lohan’s fashion collection to come out. Ten years from now, there may be no real designers left.
Vera Wang
John Updike’s first published book was a collection of poems.
Jonathan Galassi
My two goals are to read everything Edith Wharton has ever written and to have an art collection.
Kellie Martin
We must remember that North Carolina is more than a collection of regions and people. We are one state, one people, one family, bound by a common concern for each other.
Michael F. Easley
Back in the day you wanted your albums to have a theme, and ‘Sports’ theme was really a collection of singles. It was really a record for its time.
Huey Lewis
I wouldn’t include a piece in my collection that I wouldn’t wear personally.
Lauren Conrad
I felt Facebook had a lot of what I appreciated about government – being around a collection of really bright, thoughtful people motivated to have a positive impact.
Marne Levine
I have three libraries. As a gift, a friend alphabetized and organized my main library of novels, history books, and nonfiction. Then I have a photo-book collection. Then there’s this nearly whole room of my childhood books. I’ve also got cookbooks and a big collection of horse-related books.
Sally Mann
Evil is a miscellaneous collection of nasty things that nasty people do.
Richard Dawkins
I’ve always bought CDs and even when I was young and at primary school I had a massive collection of CDs. I just like the excitement of opening it, reading the book, learning all the words and things like that. Hopefully I’ll always be like that.
Amy Macdonald
If I have a collection of songs for an EP or mixtape, I create the narrative afterwards; but usually with an album, I have a concept and the name first.
Brent Faiyaz
I think Barbie and I are very similar in many respects. That’s why she made such a great muse for the summer Moschino collection.
Jeremy Scott
I want to create a collection, almost like a trilogy of sorts. Whereas ‘Milk and Honey’ was very much like holding a mirror up to yourself, the second book is turning that mirror around and fixing it on the world. The book is a reflection of the times we are in.
Rupi Kaur
Anyway, in the mid 80’s I was spending a fortune buying old Golden Age books from the late 30’s and 40’s and I was making personal appearances at a lot of sci fi and comic book conventions all around the country here so that I could find books for my collection.
Bill Mumy
Once the collection of conversations between the Israeli government and members of Congress occurred, had it been inadvertent, then they would have been destroyed instead of redacted for further use. Had they been inadvertent, then they would not have been forwarded to the White House for review in their redacted form.
Mark Meadows
I’ve stolen a couple of hearts and they are in my private collection!
Salma Hayek
The cold, commercial word ‘market’ disguises its human character – a market is a collection of our aspirations, exertions, choices and desires.
Rupert Murdoch
I don’t get stressed out about my films because the box-office collection is not in my control.
Prabhu Deva
I’ve never really thought of writing books. I’ve never thought about stories as a part of a collection.
Deborah Eisenberg
Each season I strive to design a forward-thinking and effortless collection with a very clean minimalist aesthetic.
Francisco Costa
At one point in time, you had to choose, ‘Do you want to do consumer or enterprise?’ But the reality today is a bit different: Enterprises are a collection of consumers.
Tim Cook
Cell-site data – like mailing addresses, phone numbers, and IP addresses – are information that facilitate personal communications rather than part of the content of those communications themselves. The government’s collection of business records containing these data, therefore, is not a search.
Raymond Kethledge
You know, albums are a funny thing. They’re not like an intellectual decision. It’s a collection of your kind of musings.
Glen Hansard
I can tell you every element of every single look from each collection – one to 30 – without looking at a picture: my label is all done by me.
John Rocha
Debt collection is a market with real, persistent, and disturbing problems.
Richard Cordray
Almost every collection I do has 200 different references. I don’t have two of the same coat, two of the same dress. I have it in one color, in one fabric. I’ve tried to adapt the culture of couture, and the know-how and the heritage, but I try to update it.
Alber Elbaz
To create a collection, you need a narrative – an explanation to tell the team.
Dries van Noten
From a child I was fond of reading, and all the little money that came into my hands was ever laid out in books. Pleased with the ‘Pilgrim’s Progress,’ my first collection was of John Bunyan’s works in separate little volumes.
Benjamin Franklin
Provision of facilities to the masses is linked with the collection of taxes.
Shehbaz Sharif
My closet is a sea of black pants, skirts, tops, and bags, so it’s great to come across a brand that makes me want to break out of my fashion rut! The Sequence Collection is an accessories line that is all about color, from funky woven bracelets to brightly-patterned bags.
Amanda Hearst
I’m working now on a collection of Shakespearean sonnets, about 100 of them, that I may publish if anyone’s interested. My take on life is a little different from the bard’s.
Jack Prelutsky
Debt collectors should be required to disclose the applicable statute of limitations in the body of their collection letters, in bold type. While it’s not illegal to dun a consumer for an old debt, it is illegal to sue for one.
Gary Weiss
Even when I was a little girl, I remember going to the Museum of Modern Art. I think my parents took me there once or twice. And what I really remember is the design collection.
Barbara Kruger
My father’s record collection was all country. That’s how I was exposed to it.
Keith Urban
When I started ‘Record Collection,’ I had no idea that it would come out sounding the way that it did, and that’s one of the best things about the creative process, taking turns with the things you didn’t know.
Mark Ronson
It defies logic that protections against predatory debt collection practices don’t apply to debt collectors hired by the federal government.
Cory Booker
I’m in a business where no one cares about anything except how well your last collection sold.
Calvin Klein
I’m a jeans person; I love Abercrombie. My shoe collection is composed mostly of Chucks and a few pairs of girly ones.
I have no formal guitar training whatsoever, so it’s been fun learning sweep-picking techniques. Working on these types of licks has thrown a whole new collection of tricks into the mix.
Zacky Vengeance
Sometimes, the intelligence community does legal collection against a legitimate foreign intelligence target and that target interacts with U.S. persons, against whom our people thus end up collecting information as a collateral matter.
Benjamin Wittes
Ever since I learned about the concept of garbage collection in 6.001 at MIT in 1984 while using Scheme on HP Chipmunks, I’ve always thought of dreaming as the same as garbage collection for a computer.
Brad Feld
I feel similar to a lot of people. I don’t feel unique. So what I’m trying to do in my films is provide something for people like me, but also a collection of scenes that instigate.
Derek Cianfrance
I don’t think any one relationship in my life has wrecked me. I think I am a collection of wrecks.
Vikram Bhatt
There’s not too much difference between writing a picture book and writing a collection of a hundred poems or so, except that the bigger books take a lot longer to do.
Jack Prelutsky
I always have separated myself from my critiques of collections. My judgment is not about whether I would wear it – but how the collection stands in the lexicon of an established designer. As I am a maximalist, not a minimalist, I don’t wear Armani or Celine – but I so appreciate what they have achieved.
Suzy Menkes
Whether it’s color palettes for my apparel collection or materials for handbags and shoes or inspiration for fine jewelry, traveling expands your mind and opens you up to different things you haven’t seen before.
Ivanka Trump
Luckily there were no venomous snakes around Hoosick, N.Y., so I amassed quite a collection of milk snakes, garters, ribbons and ring-necked snakes.
Romulus Whitaker
Our partnership with Disney included a two-hour Cinderella list takeover that features supermodel Coco Rocha’s first-ever fashion collection, which incorporated behind-the-scenes footage and interviews to support her HSN debut.
Mindy Grossman
‘Knockemstiff’ is a collection of short stories set in the holler of the same name in southern Ohio where I grew up. I tried to link the stories together through the place and some recurring characters.
Donald Ray Pollock
California has set up regional collection offices around the world, staffed by California employees, specifically for out of state California businesses to collect the money and bring it back to California.
Craig Benson
One client’s wife managed to steam the labels off all of the several hundred bottles in her husband’s prestigious wine collection, so the collection was worthless. The husband hosted ‘What’s that wine?’ dinner parties.
Laura Wasser
I was a comic book nut. For real. I still have a collection in my closet.
Joe Russo
Designing kids clothes is something personal to me because I’m a mother. So to be able to see my kids wearing something I’ve designed is very fulfilling. With the kids’ collection, we really try to focus on great quality with an accessible price point in styles that appeal to both parents and kids.
Stella McCartney
Somebody made the statement that Donald Trump has built or owns the greatest collection of golf courses, ever, in the history of golf. And I believe that is 100 percent true.
Donald Trump
It was a lot of hard work, but everyone loved my Amy Childs’ Collection, so I decided to have a boutique as well as my salon. I love designing my own dresses, and everyone is loving the collection. I can’t believe how well the boutique and the clothing online is going.
Amy Childs
I remember watching the Blu-ray, and also when they first released it on DVD in the collection of all three movies of ‘The Godfather,’ and seeing all of those scenes that they cut out, and there wasn’t a single one of them that I wished they had kept it, but they were the most exciting thing to watch anyway.
Matt Reeves
I am very excited about the launch of my new collection with Superga UK. I really enjoyed creating for the brand and adding a piece of myself into the designs. I hope that everyone loves them as much as I enjoyed making them.
Suki Waterhouse
With data collection, ‘The sooner the better’ is always the best answer.
Marissa Mayer
Dot Hacker, to me, sounds like a collection of all my tastes. I hear four people trying to fill up as much space as they can.
Josh Klinghoffer
I want to create a collection, almost like a trilogy of sorts. Whereas ‘Milk and Honey’ was very much like holding a mirror up to yourself, the second book is turning that mirror around and fixing it on the world. The book is a reflection of the times we are in.
Rupi Kaur
Both of my parents were super music lovers when I was growing up – they had a massive record and tape collection. I think my dad even had a couple of laser discs, but that was a short-lived thing.
Madi Diaz
Society is completely unreasonable. People want everything and want to pay for nothing. They panic if they think about their taxes being raised, but if their garbage collection is a day late they scream and yell.
Michael Schur
Well, that’s what life is – this collection of extraordinarily ordinary moments. We just need to pay attention to them all. Wake up and pay attention to how beautiful it all is.
Alexander Payne
I’ve never liked to conceptualize too much about fashion, like it was art or science, which it is not. But it’s nice when there’s a clear idea behind a collection.
Marco Zanini
Even amid the shock of my diagnosis, I held onto the hope that I’d be able to make the most of my down time by catching up on reading or watching all those Criterion Collection movies I’d always meant to watch.
Suleika Jaouad
You can grow up without having to conform, stop going to shows, stop having a record collection, start being politically iffy.
Johnny Marr
For me, I’ve always wanted to be a nun. I mean, I think about what it’s like to be a nun. And I’ve always been fascinated with nuns, and I have a nun collection, I’ve been collecting nuns for 20 years. And I have a song that I wrote, ‘I Wanna Be a Nun,’ when I was 25.
Kate Micucci
It’s hard to find powder and things for my skin tone. I look at Rihanna’s collection, and I’m always in awe because there’s a shade that exists for every skin tone.
Tori Bowie
Strats are my favorite electric guitars, and I’ve got quite a collection.
Dan Fogelberg
At the age of 12 I won the school prize for Best English Essay. The prize was a copy of Somerset Maugham’s ‘Introduction To Modern English And American Literature.’ To this day I keep it on the shelf between my collection of Forester’s works and the little urn that contains my mother’s ashes.
Wilbur Smith
My autumn/winter 2011-12 collection embodies the bold and beautiful while reflecting an innovative style and passion for immaculate design. I believe that this collection radiates modern femininity and beauty in its purest form.
Emilia Wickstead
My grandfather was in the military, and I’ve been part of the Folds of Honor Foundation since 2009, so having the opportunity to wear Puma’s Volition America collection is the perfect fit for me.
Gary Woodland
I really like the Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony collection – all of those kind of laser-cut leather dresses.
Behati Prinsloo
I want to have my own line and collection.
Christian Siriano
In ideal form of social control is an atomised collection of individuals focused on their own narrow concern, lacking the kinds of organisations in which they can gain information, develop and articulate their thoughts, and act constructively to achieve common ends.
Noam Chomsky
I have a varied collection of music on my phone. I like a lot of the popular music that has a really energetic beat to it, as well as some classical things.
Chesley Sullenberger
I have a large collection of town cars because when I was just a snipe in the gutter, growing up in Los Angeles, a town car drove by. I remember running in the house to get my mother so she could see it. It was utterly magnificent.
Clive Cussler
The process of seeking fame is a process of seeking dehumanization. You are looking for it. You want it. But you only want the good parts of it. You want the part where people see you as just a collection of positive things and nothing else.
Hank Green
I don’t think I am that materialistic, actually. Obviously at home in the country the art collection is important, but we have one big room in the middle of the house where we do everything – the television, the kitchen, everything.
Andrew Lloyd Webber
There is something very cyclical about the way fashion designers work. They work and work and work, the collection is finally shown, and after those 15 minutes, they must start over from the beginning. This is not unlike the way I work creating new dances.
Justin Peck
Movies, to a large extent, stand or fall on the strength of their scripts. But a documentary is a collection of found objects: fragments you’ve collected, accidents of interview and happenstance, pieces of stock footage that surface in the course of six to nine months of research and production.
David Fanning
I get really frustrated when people say that a collection is not very ‘Armani.’ Iconic status can be like a pair of handcuffs, especially if, like me, you wish to continually stretch yourself creatively, as Warhol did.
Giorgio Armani
Companies that rely on licensing a proprietary dataset should expect to be outpaced by competitors using modern data collection techniques and more frequent updates and greater accuracy.
Hilary Mason
Women who are paid to look hot get hit on all the time, so don’t roll up on a restaurant hostess with your non-iron Trump Collection shirt and expect anything to pop off.
Sean Evans
Comedy is good at analysing and dealing with evil because it doesn’t present it as evil but a collection of banalities.
David Farr
Most of my life, I feel I have been Unicycling at the Edge of the Abyss! If fact, this will be the name of my book if I ever write one, or a one man stand up routine. I have used it as the name of a collection of my musical compositions written during the ’90s. It fits the scary journey I feel I’ve been on.
Jon Polito
The budget is not just a collection of numbers, but an expression of our values and aspirations.
Jack Lew
I like to find those shirts that they only made one of. That’s my approach to style. But my vintage T-shirt collection is a little ridiculous.
Josh Henderson
The two offices of memory are collection and distribution.
Samuel Johnson
New York has the biggest, most eclectic collection of people in the world.
Brandon Stanton
Every time that I wanted to give up, if I saw an interesting textile, print what ever, suddenly I would see a collection.
Anna Sui
Regardless of how good or bad a collection might be, it’s a letdown after the show is over. It’s done. Something you’ve worked on for months is just over.
Oscar de la Renta
When I was 9 years old, growing up in Denver in the 1960s, I’d spend hours listening to my friend’s mother’s record collection.
Philip Bailey
There is no longer any anonymity on the Web – unless we mandate it. The most personal information about your online habits is collected, bought and sold, often instantaneously and invisibly. Data collection is a business driven by profits at consumers’ expense.
Jackie Speier
Our society is not a community, but merely a collection of isolated family units.
Valerie Solanas
I have a storage unit, as I moved out of a bigger house into a smaller house in L.A. I put all my stuff in a storage unit, where I have the most amazing collection of bad paintings, which took me 10 years to put together.
Jennifer Coolidge
‘Soulfire’ is a collection of stuff I’ve done in the past. Each song is an element of who I am: There’s a doo-wop song on the album; a blues song, R&B and some jazz. For people who are going to be hearing me for the first time, it’s an introduction to who I am.
Steven Van Zandt
Today, if you were to look at my CD collection, it might scare some people.
Gretchen Wilson
I bought tiny infant onesies while still in college and compiled a killer toy collection throughout my 20s and 30s.
Kara Swisher
I’ve been asking myself: ‘Why put together these things – CDs, albums?’ The answer I came up with is, well, sometimes it’s artistically viable. It’s not just a random collection of songs. Sometimes the songs have a common thread, even if it’s not obvious or even conscious on the artists’ part.
David Byrne
Cancer is a collection of many diseases with common principles, and each disease will have to be understood and more effectively controlled on its own terms.
Harold E. Varmus
Designer Marc Jacobs ended his sixteen-year tenure at Louis Vuitton with a spring 2014 collection that celebrated fashion in its purest and least complicated form – as majestic, superficial beauty.
Robin Givhan
I may not be in the office as much as I was at the start of the business but when a new range is launched – and we have two, a spring/summer and an autumn/winter collection – each year, all designs come through me first to make sure I am happy with them.
Ian Poulter
Jean Thompson’s short-story collection ‘Who Do You Love’ is a beautiful book, but a hell of a sad one.
Jeff Giles
Brittany might not boast the biggest collection of Michelin stars in France, but when it comes to produce, you quickly realise that some of the key building blocks of French cuisine have their roots here.
Rachel Khoo
I have a huge Lego collection – I have a really big Lego collection. We’re talking pretty darn large. I also have a huge collection of original stainless steel Thomas the Tank Engine train toys. Beautiful little trains; they’re my favorite thing in the world.
Callan McAuliffe
Demands for equal financing of sewers, streets, and garbage collection would make more sense than proposals for equal financing of the schools, since some plausible connection may be inferred between the amount of money expended, e.g., for roads, and the quality of service resulting to the taxpayer.
M. Stanton Evans
The real power of mass data collection lies in the hand-tailored algorithms capable of sifting, sorting, and identifying patterns within the data itself. When enough information is collected over time, governments and corporations can use or abuse those patterns to predict future human behavior.
Chelsea Manning
‘I Met You When I Was 18’ is a collection of songs, a story about moving to New York City when I was 18 and falling in love for the first time. A story about trying to figure out your own identity whilst being deeply intertwined with someone else’s.
Dolce & Gabbana is like our child. The editing of a collection before a show is a tough call, as we would like to show everything!
Stefano Gabbana
Apple, iTunes, and streaming services have made the single a more easy thing to access. What that’s done has made the album as a collection of songs almost meaningless. But an album that has a concept or story or reason to be an album, if anything, has more meaning now than it ever has.
Matt Bellamy
HERE’s leadership was recognized by Frost & Sullivan, who noted that HERE stands apart for its knowledge and industry experience, impressive data collection ability, high level of personalization, revolutionary products, and wide ranging partnerships with nearly every OEM and system vendor.
Rajeev Suri
What we become depends on what we read after all of the professors have finished with us. The greatest university of all is a collection of books.
Thomas Carlyle
Nothing scares me more than people with some doll collection.
Karl Lagerfeld
There’s nothing wrong with having a collection, but it becomes a problem when it overwhelms your space. When you’re not displaying it properly, you’re not enjoying it and it turns into clutter.
Niecy Nash
I traveled to a library in South Africa called ILAM (International Library of African Music), which has a collection of about 500 different instruments that don’t really exist anymore.
Ludwig Goransson
I have a collection of lucky pennies, and I like to carry some of them with me. So far, they seem to be working!
Joanna Garcia
I’m always fetishizing the French woman and French taste and style. My assistant will make fun of me because every time we’re picking the direction of a collection, I say the same thing: ‘I want it to be really French.’
Joseph Altuzarra
It’s all cyclical. Sometimes things just come in packs. At one point you had this collection of great choreographers where you would see eight bars and you would know definitely who did it.
Ann Reinking
I live at Gap Kids; I think they have the cutest stuff. I barely buy anything for myself, but my daughter has quite the collection.
Joanna Garcia
The Fair Debt Collection Act was passed in 1977, and there were never any provisions for rules to be written under it, so it hasn’t kept pace with the times.
Richard Cordray
I like wearing the things from Japan, because they usually get a different collection than we do.
AJ Tracey
You can tell a lot about your cooks’ personalities by their music collection. I personally have such an eclectic collection, partly due to the combining of music libraries with girlfriends past.
Johnny Iuzzini
I’ve always liked street lights, and I’ve always photographed them. I probably have a collection of two to three thousand photographs of them, just around the city, mainly at night.
Harmony Korine
There was a substantial vinyl collection in my home, and my mom played piano. We, the children, were enrolled in piano lessons very early on.
Julie Payette
I kept a notebook, a surreptitious journal in which I jotted down phrases, technical data, miscellaneous information, names, dates, places, telephone numbers, thoughts, and a collection of other data I thought was necessary or might prove helpful.
Frank Abagnale
My debut album is like a collection of work over the past nine or ten years that I’ve been writing since I was 18-years-old, and when you’ve had that long writing music you get to select the music that has worked really well.
Becky Hill
I tend to have a lot of songs ready for each record I do anyway. I always have. I was thinking, the more you write, the better chance you’re going to come up with a collection of stuff that is going to work together.
Beth Hart
What is all wisdom save a collection of platitudes?
Norman Douglas
My step dad’s from Nigeria, so he listened to Highlife music from Africa. He was also into hip-hop and R&B, and from that, I started to listen to music from his collection and liking it, developing my own taste.
Jax Jones
I collect handkerchiefs. I know that’s sort of old-timey, but my mom started the collection for me, and now I have a bunch. Basically, I have a myriad of beautiful handkerchiefs, and I carry them like a grandmother in my purse. And I opt for hankies in any situation.
Lake Bell
I consider a CD or a comedy collection as a record of what I’ve been doing, and I try to wrap it up and start new material.
Kate Clinton
I have the largest collection of Hulk memorabilia in the world – everything from toilet paper, wallpaper, bicycles – all boxed up at my house in Northern California. I’ve had it for so long, I think it might be time to sell it.
Lou Ferrigno
If atheism is to be used to express the state of mind in which God is identified with the unknowable, and theology is pronounced to be a collection of meaningless words about unintelligible chimeras, then I have no doubt, and I think few people doubt.
Leslie Stephen
I’ve managed to get some beautiful bags. I have a great collection, and so does my mother. My favourite is a purple one by Gucci, which I take everywhere!
Becki Newton
Whenever I’m doing a collection, I’m inspired by the world around us.
Virgil Abloh
When I started working in fashion, I didn’t have money to buy photographs, so I’d Xerox pictures from magazines and put them in notebooks. When I’d start a collection, I’d sit with my old notebooks and look through them for inspiration.
John Varvatos
I’m a huge, huge fan of photography. I have a small photography collection. As soon as I started to make some money, I bought my very first photograph: an Henri Cartier-Bresson. Then I bought a Robert Frank.
Annie Leibovitz
The Internet is not just one thing, it’s a collection of things – of numerous communications networks that all speak the same digital language.
James H. Clark
I have too much product, and I’m trying to rein it in and sell more of my main collection. I wish you didn’t have to design so often; it would be good if you could keep on selling the same things for a few years and not have to do new things all the time.
Vivienne Westwood
The Learning Hub is a collection of handmade concrete towers surrounding a central space that brings everyone together, interspersed with nooks, balconies and gardens for informal collaborative learning.
Thomas Heatherwick
New York is this cacophony – a collection of radical differences, an agreement of non sequiturs. The diversity and intensity are startling.
Thom Mayne
Even the most left-wing politicians worship wealth creation – as the political-action-committee collection plate is passed.
P. J. O’Rourke
One of my favorite things about America is our breathtaking collection of national and state parks, many of which boast wonders the Psalmist would envy.
Eric Metaxas
San Francisco is a city; L.A. is a collection of suburbs that have very little in common with one another.
Orson Bean
I have created a capsule collection for Genetic inspired by memories of growing up in LA. Denim has always been my go-to, especially during my modelling days. I discovered Genetic Denim about five years ago – they are so comfy, you could almost be wearing your pyjamas.
Liberty Ross
I have a passion for luggage – trunks and so on. I have a collection of them, but I can never resist buying another piece.
Alain Ducasse
I have a lot of sapphires in my collection.
Erika Jayne
I have a knife collection.
Taylor Momsen
I’m inspired by different cultures around the world and love to incorporate these facets into my collection.
Rachel Roy
The book that first made me want to be a writer is Flannery O’Connor’s short story collection ‘A Good Man Is Hard To Find.’
Karin Slaughter
I’m wary about this thing about being in the generation of social networking where people are like, ‘I am my musical taste.’ I am not just a collection of music. Or a collection of movies. I think that’s a thing that people romanticize: ‘Oh my God, she likes this band so she is a dream.’
Zooey Deschanel
Collection is an addiction.
Judith Miller
I have what is probably the largest big bike collection in the city: a Fat Boy, a sportser Harley Davidson and two Yamahas. All these are 1200cc-plus bikes. Riding these bikes is something I still do and some trekking as well.
Baba Kalyani
I was a comic book nut. For real. I still have a collection in my closet.
Joe Russo
I think a lot of women would be impressed by my shoe collection.
Matt Harvey
Even before I was discovered in 1966, I used to make my own clothes. I learned how to sew early on, and it’s still my passion now. I constantly have ideas in my head about clothes so jumped at the chance to do my own collection and am very hands-on. Everything I design, I wear and I love.
If I like a book, I tend to read the author’s entire collection. But I choose mainly through personal recommendations, general word of mouth and book reviews.
Randa Abdel-Fattah
A battery by definition is a collection of cells. So the cell is a little can of chemicals. And the challenge is taking a very high-energy cell, and a large number of them, and combining them safely into a large battery.
Elon Musk
I feel naked without jewelry. If I’m having a bad hair day, I pick something from my huge collection of hats.
Olivia Thirlby
Every collection that I work on, I always think, Is this cool enough to wear to a concert?
Anna Sui
Fabric is the foundation of a collection.
John Rocha
I’ve just finished my next collection, Possible Side Effects, and I’m now working on a collection of holiday stories as well as a memoir about my relationship with my father.
Augusten Burroughs
‘Passione’ is a selection of the music moments that have accompanied my youth; a collection of cherished memories, of moments, of fleeting emotions, of sleepless nights.
Andrea Bocelli
After taking a retreat into the woods of the Russian River Valley to write, reflect, and commune with nature and one another, ‘Amethyst Journey’ was born. The album is a collection of songs that are a combination of our outlook and inspirations – a response to current issues and the state of our planet.
Creating a bridalwear collection was a natural progression from my evening wear collections, which are well known for their softly draped and diaphanous silk gowns.
Matthew Williamson
I really believe in the power of the individual to make change, and our family is a real collection of individuals.
Christie Brinkley
I have the world’s largest collection of seashells. I keep it on all the beaches of the world… perhaps you’ve seen it.
Steven Wright
I would like here to announce to all Indonesian Muslims that I, as a private citizen, am prepared to take charge of the massive national effort of zakat collection… From now on, I am personally willing to receive zakat payments made in the form of money orders from every single Muslim in the country.
When we talk about emotion, we really talk about a collection of behaviors that are produced by the brain. You can look at a person in the throes of an emotion and observe changes in the face, in the body posture, in the coloration of the skin and so on.
Antonio Damasio
I’ve been into short stories ever since I read an Angela Carter collection when I was a teenager.
Lauren Mayberry
I love herbal teas and have quite a collection.
Denise Lewis
I had the honour and the privilege to launch the brand Dodo and Moa together with Amazon Fashion at the Amazon Fashion Studio. The brand is a brainchild of Zashed Fashiontech. It is a new age brand for women with a collection that is contemporary, fun and modern.
Vaani Kapoor
I’m always looking to make something that didn’t exist before, fumbling about in the dark, not just while making a collection. The search for something new is a constant in my everyday life. But constantly searching for something new is like looking for a well in a desert.
Rei Kawakubo
Because of the long, long history of British shipping, immigration, trade, empire, missionaries, you can have a better shot at telling a worldwide story in the British Museum’s collection than any other. Britain has been more connected with the rest of the world than any other country, for longer.
Neil MacGregor
What I enjoy doing more than anything is, I have my little antique car collection, and when the weather is pretty I like to get out one of my old cars. I have a little route I run down in the country, down Nachez Trace Parkway. The loop down through there is just really relaxing, not much traffic.
Alan Jackson
I’ve jokingly painted some of my favorite collectors as black men, so there’s a really great portrait of David LaChapelle, the photographer – my version of him – that’s in his collection.
Kehinde Wiley
My uncle has a VHS collection of over 20,000 films.
Sayani Gupta
I have my own personal collection of Super Soakers in various sizes.
Dawnn Lewis
