We’ve sourced some of the most interesting and thought-provoking Genesis Quotes from Ted Cruz, Panos Cosmatos, Peter Gabriel, Franklin Foer, Jay Samit. Each of the following quotes is overflowing with creativity, and knowledge.
I grew up listening to classic rock – the Kinks, Genesis, The Who, Pink Floyd.
When I was a kid I wasn’t allowed to watch horror movies at all. And actually, one of the genesis points for ‘Mandy’ and ‘Black Rainbow’ was this memory I have of being in video stores, reading the backs of videos and looking at the art, imagining some kind of non-existent imaginary film based on that.
I really wanted the first record to be different from what I’d done with Genesis, so we were trying to do things in different styles.
The genesis of Donald Trump’s relationship with Paul Manafort begins with Roy Cohn. That Roy Cohn: Joe McCarthy’s heavy-lidded henchman, lawyer to the Genovese family. During the ’70s, Trump and his father hired Cohn as their lawyer to defend the family against a housing discrimination suit.
The greatest challenge to most innovation centers around the world is many nations’ punitive attitudes towards failure. In most of the world, if your first business fails, no one will work with you again. But, trial and error is the genesis of innovation.
Being closer to the genesis of this whole period, it captured the importance of the concept of making contact and accurately depicted the paranoia of the time. It’s an excellent film.
When I went to high school in Australia, I was exposed to textbooks that outlined evolutionary ideas – such as ape-like creatures turning into people. I recognized the conflict between evolutionary ideas and a literal reading of the book of Genesis.
I joined Genesis when I was 19. I’ve earned the right to actually do nothing. I don’t want to be a shadow of what I was, so I’ve kind of just quite willingly stood back.
I’ve always been interested in film, so to get involved in any way in the genesis of making a film or music for a film is fascinating to me.
While I began writing ‘Rules of Civility’ in 2006, the genesis of the book dates back to the early 1990s, when I happened upon a copy of ‘Many Are Called,’ the collection of portraits that Walker Evans took on the New York City subways in the late 1930s with a hidden camera.
GN’R was five guys who were all into different things. I liked pop and disco, Izzy was into New York rock, Slash loved Aerosmith and Led Zeppelin, Axl was into Genesis and Elton John, and Duff was a punk rocker. We all blended that stuff together.
The earliest stories in Genesis were not written to tell primeval history. They were written to tell readers about themselves and about God.
The signing of the Sex Pistols was a turning point for Virgin. It put the company on the map and, over the years, attracted bands such as Genesis, the Rolling Stones, Lenny Kravitz, and Janet Jackson. It also attracted Culture Club, who were ground-breaking.
It seems to me that readers sometimes make the genesis of a poem more mysterious than it is (by that I perhaps mean, think of it as something outside their own experience).
Individual stories from the Bible had been made into movies, but no one had taken on the arc of the Bible story as one meta-narrative from Genesis to Revelation.
Creation stories, so central in the religions of the Middle East, play a surprisingly marginal part in Greek myth. The Greeks had nothing to set alongside the resounding ‘In the beginning’ in the book of Genesis, where one eternal God creates the universe out of nothing.
The Bible is pregnant with politics. You cannot read the Bible from Genesis through Revelation and go through too many chapters that are not involving politics.
Each thing leapfrogs. I do a Genesis project – like now, we’re just finishing off an album – and then by the time the album is doing its thing, I could do nothing or I could do a film.
When I was a tiny tot, we only had one record player in the house, so there was either Genesis on it or the Jungle Book or The Beatles as well, and various other things.
I grew up with video games. My generation kind of grew up with the Nintendo and the Sega Genesis. Then, I had a Dreamcast and, finally, the PlayStation. So yeah, I’ve always been a big gamer.
The genesis of a poem for me is usually a cluster of words. The only good metaphor I can think of is a scientific one: dipping a thread into a supersaturated solution to induce crystal formation. I don’t think I solve problems in my poetry; I think I uncover the problems.
Genesis 9 is where the animals went wild, and God gave them wildness. After the flood, that’s when he made animals wild. Up until that time, everybody was vegetarian.
A lot of Christians have been taught a story that begins in chapter 3 of Genesis, instead of chapter 1. If your story doesn’t begin in the beginning, but begins in chapter 3, then it starts with sin, and so the story becomes about dealing with the sin problem. So Jesus is seen as primarily dealing with our sins.
Passion is the genesis of genius.
The idea of the split personality is as old as Genesis. For a start, Eve was manufactured from Adam’s rib. Then there’s Cain and Abel, twins at war. They were followed by Esau and Jacob, likewise divisible into hairy and smooth types.
Of course, the genesis of a good portion of the gridlock in Congress does not reside in Congress itself. Ultimate reform will require each of us, as voters and Americans, to take a long look in the mirror, because in many ways, our representatives in Washington reflect the people who have sent them there.
I put on close to 60 pounds for ‘Genesis,’ an independent movie from New Zealand.
In Genesis we saw ourselves as song-writers. After Peter Gabriel left I was the first to say: ‘It’s OK – we can just do instrumentals.’
There is a strong tendency in explanatory prose to invoke quantities of tension, energy, and whatnot to explain the genesis of pattern. I believe that all such explanations are inappropriate or wrong.
All the great crimes of history, lest we forget, have their genesis in the moral wilderness of their times.
Being at the genesis of the creative process is definitely something I want to keep doing. It’s just such a great buzz.
The prominence given to our nation as a rainbow country has its genesis and credence in our ‘Calaloo culture’ of which our East Indian brothers and sisters have played a principal part.
In the most important sense a creationist is a person who believes in creation, and that includes people who believe that Genesis is a myth and that creation involved a process called evolution and consumed billions of years.
My very first system was the Sega Genesis back when I was 7 or 8 years old. I played that into the ground. Like, my parents had to confiscate it and put it in attic, the whole thing.
When I was growing up, I was an ’80s baby, so I remember the Sega Genesis and the first Nintendo. I grew up in a time when we first started playing video games on a computer screen. Now there are headsets and your body’s the controller.
In Genesis 6:3, it says man can live to be 120, but there is no scientific basis for it.
The advantage of the Genesis is that it’s a rock-solid camera, made by a company with an enormous history and a huge support base. Plus, it’s very good in low light using all the Panavision lenses. The downside is that you’re recording on tape.
Genesis fans are a religious group!
My taste comes from when I was 12 years old and saw Genesis or Laurie Anderson or some performance artist who had put paint on himself. I’ve seen a lot of theater, but that’s not what woke up my taste to become a director; nontheatrical things were much more theatrical than the theater I was seeing.
I think the last game console I had was Super Nintendo. I remember once I played the Sega Genesis. But Super Nintendo was my last game device. I played outside more. I liked kickball and baseball.
My greatest reward is knowing for certain, as I do with many other acts and artistes, that without Jonathan King being alive and involved, Genesis would not exist, and the guys would have had careers as intended – as accountants and lawyers!
I love video games. I had a Sega Genesis and a Nintendo 64 growing up, and I’ve had every ‘NBA Live’ that has ever come out.
I was very nervous interviewing Genesis on Radio 2. I felt out of my depth and somebody tweeted afterwards: Sara Cox interviewing Genesis – what a waste. I was crushed, because I kind of knew it was true.
Oh yeah, I love Peter Gabriel’s stuff. I mean, I even have the Genesis records. He’s incredible.
The genesis of Public Interest Litigation in listening to the voice of the voiceless and giving access to the poor, the marginalised, and the weak is a unique experiment to be lauded.
I remember going to a son’s friend’s bar mitzvah, and the text that he chose to explicate was right at the beginning of Genesis. It was not about a fall from grace or a fall from perfection; it was about an awakening into consciousness, which is what it means to be human.
When we were making games in the early ’90s for the Super Nintendo and the Sega Genesis, popular games didn’t have any real story.
Jazz is all about being in the moment. Whatever the music is making you feel, jazz gives you the freedom. That’s the same genesis as hip-hop.
The story of Noah, like other stories in the first 11 chapters of Genesis, are archetypal. Noah’s story tells us that human beings have an inherent tendency towards violence both towards their fellow human beings and towards the creation itself. The story tells us that this violence grieves God.
You know, the Bible is so clear. Go to Genesis chapter nine and you will find the death penalty clearly stated in Genesis chapter nine… God ordains the death penalty!
I always look for genuineness. If I feel I can connect with the audience, I will try to develop it. For example, the genesis of ‘Kannathil Muthamittal’ was an article published in a magazine.
The things that converge in the writing of a play come from a complex of motives, a genesis shrouded in a certain kind of mystery.
Oklahoma City, Katrina… those happened to other unfortunate people. But 9/11, that happened to us all. And that was pretty much the genesis of ‘Reign Over Me.’
The doctrine of marriage depends on Genesis being true. If there’s an absolute authority, and if God’s the Creator, He made one man and one woman. Jesus came and said that marriage is between a man and woman. If Genesis is not true, we’re just animals, and marriage is just whatever you want to make it to be.
I am humbled and honored to receive the Genesis Prize, recognizing not just my professional achievements and my desire to improve the world, but also my commitment to my Jewish identity, Jewish values, and Jewish culture.
