Jay Williams
‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ breaks my heart. It’s a show based on the book written in the ’80s by Margaret Atwood – who is a spectacular talent. That book is a work of art.

Advertising seemed almost natural to me because it was a business where you had to inform, persuade and educate. And so from being a junior copywriter to being the creative director of one of the largest advertising agencies in the country took me 4.5 years, which is, well, a fairly spectacular rise.
Bryce Courtenay

Motsi Mabuse

Linwood Barclay
Turnberry is truly one of the most spectacular properties on earth. The views, the setting, and grandeur of the hotel – there’s just nothing else like it. We’ve respected the architectural history of the hotel first and foremost, but most of all, we’ve respected the tradition of golf at Turnberry.
Eric Trump
I knew if I were ever to leave ‘Godspell,’ which I loved so much, it would have to be for something really spectacular.

Shawn Kemp
New York is a spectacular place, and those who are jealous of the way we live our lives are always going to, you know, to strike out, and, you know, we’re always going to be a target, sadly. London is going to be a target. You know, anywhere in the West, you’re a target.
Howard Lutnick
We used to see spectacular things with Jon Jones when he fights.

Jason Whitlock
When I dive for a ball I’m not diving because it looks spectacular – I’m trying win the point. When I jump it’s because it’s easy for me to jump. I’m not being cocky but because I can jump higher than other people it looks more spectacular. Other players smash but I go higher so it looks different.
Gael Monfils
I had a spectacular four years as OpenTable CEO and remain an active executive chairman. I think, for me, some of the interesting observations there are, you know, global is important, mobile is extremely important. And then, network businesses are very attractive.

Jon Postel

Steve Carell is the most spectacular ad-lib improviser ever. And just doing a scene with him, it’s just one incredible topping himself on every take.
Lucy Punch
The spectacular catches are the ones that you remember detail for detail. The ones with two hands, it’s kind of routine.
DeAndre Hopkins
There was a big thing in the Behan family of achieving and wanting to be something special. There was a big drive in the family, even though it was poor and working class, to do something important, to contribute something to Irish culture. He certainly achieved that in a spectacular way.

When you work on something that combines both the spectacular and the relatable, the hyperreal and the real, it suddenly can become supernatural. The hypothetical and the theoretical can become literal.

Brian Stokes Mitchell
Discovering L.A., in particular in the early ’80s, was pretty spectacular; it was fun and carefree, and there was not nearly as much traffic as exists today. It was very much the last gasps of the Beach Boys’ ideal view of L.A.: sun, the beach, cars, blondes, etc.
Zach Galligan
I live and die with the Indians. The first game I attended back in the mid-’90s was almost a religious experience. We were down by six and won by two, and it was glorious. The stadium is so beautiful, and the way it frames the city when you’re sitting high above the second base line is spectacular.
Mary Doria Russell

Anthony Yarde
Please get on an airplane or a horse, because it’s pretty spectacular.
Kelly Ripa
Technology is a major tool in exploring and challenging your creativity, but it can also overtake your creativity… My mind goes very fast, and I can see all kinds of images that would be spectacular on the screen. But they would cost so much money, and would they really make the story that much better?
Jan de Bont
I like to be glamorous so I love the clothing and the big entrances. It needs to be spectacular!
Paulina Rubio
The thing about a plant is, let’s say it will have 50 or 100 little points of bright red. If you look at the thing as it goes down, it becomes green in a way… It is way more spectacular than pointillist paintings where these things are played with, but never to the level of what happens in nature.
Robert Irwin
Because of its gradient, it is the site of many spectacular waterfalls, like the Unchalli Falls, near which, on a full moon night in winter, you might even glimpse a moonbow – a rainbow generated from the moonlight. This is the river Aghanashini – ‘the cleanser of sins.’
Rohini Nilekani
Most people went to dance shows, but it was basically a table and a DJ playing and not really a spectacular thing. I brought the whole production with the effects – the best sound, the best lighting to blow the fans away.
I’m not a big metal fan. I love and respect the musicianship, which is spectacular.
Steven Adler
Coral reefs represent some of the world’s most spectacular beauty spots, but they are also the foundation of marine life: without them many of the sea’s most exquisite species will not survive.
Sheherazade Goldsmith
And then, build a bustling wonderful city of the 21st century, with a restoration of a spectacular skyline, which Manhattan, of course, needs. So, that is really the design as a whole.

Kevin O’Leary
Great Wass Island Preserve is a 1,579-acre Nature Conservancy jewel, a place of spectacular botanical interest, and Jonesport is situated on a postcard-pretty harbor.

Sue Hubbell

Jalen Rose

Stephen Kinzer
‘White Rabbit’ was mostly done in about two days, the music in about half an hour. The music is a ‘Bolero’ rip-off and the lyrics a rearrangement of ‘Alice in Wonderland.’ You take two spectacular hits and throw them together, and it’s hard to miss.
Grace Slick
Invest your money safely. Avoid the risky lure of spectacular returns; go for an investment that cannot lose its value. This is why I have put all my spare cash into buying not shares, but thousands of penny chews.
Dominic Holland
I could jump out of this window feet first, which would be the safe way. But the way I’d do it would be to use a ramp, get a running start, dive through head first and maybe throw in a little roll at the end. Doing it that way makes it more spectacular.
Hal Needham
As an actor, I’m always critical watching others; it’s just the nature of the beast. For me, any performance that doesn’t cause my ego to say, ‘I can do that’ really signifies that it’s spectacular.
David Alan Basche
Lowbrow ingredients don’t equal inexpensive or not tasty food. In fact, it requires even more skill to make something simple into something spectacular.

Lawrence Summers
The first ‘Wii Fit’ games I tried were the slalom and ski jumping. I believe my spectacular failures here had more to do with the board resting on thick carpet than my shoddy balance.
Jen Lancaster
My own fantasies of what life would be like at 24 tended to the more spectacular.
Joan Didion
I love Charlie, Billy Burke’s character. Writing for him is so spectacular, he’s so funny and wry and every scene he’s in he just takes. There’s a scene in ‘Eclipse’ where Bella tells him she’s a virgin, and it’s the funniest, most awkward scene I’ve ever seen on film.
Melissa Rosenberg
There’s nothing worse than an ostentatious shot. Or some lighting that draws attention to itself, and you might go, ‘Oh, wow, that’s spectacular.’ Or that spectacular shot, a big crane move, or something.

Nicki Minaj
It is spectacular. From about five minutes in, when we knew for sure that we were going to have the weather to go, the smile on my face just got bigger and bigger, and I was just beaming through the whole launch. I mean, it is just an amazing ride.
Chris Hadfield
When you do a movie as opposed to a TV show, it’s always tempting to think everything has to be big and exaggerated and spectacular. And in fact, a lot of the funniest comedy films have been very intimate.
Armando Iannucci
September 11, 2001, was a terrible tragedy by any measure, but it was not a historical turning point. It did not herald a new era of international relations in which terrorists with a global agenda prevailed or in which such spectacular terrorist attacks became commonplace.
Richard N. Haass
I always wanted to meet Nelson Mandela, and I have friends who knew him, but I didn’t get to meet Mandela. I always thought he was a spectacular character.

Bill Veeck
To kind of go through life not caring is a spectacular attribute. It’s one I wish I had.
Neil Cross
There’s a lot of indigenous wrestling styles there that used to be a lot more popular and stronger within the European continent. Although, there’s still quite a few countries over there that produce pretty spectacular Greco and freestyle wrestlers.

Jeremy Grantham
Thanks to the arrival of such spirited and purposeful groups as X, the Blasters, R.E.M., and the Replacements, American rock has made a spectacular comeback.
Robert Hilburn
I’ve never seen anywhere in the world as beautiful as Kashmir. It has something to do with the fact that the valley is very small and the mountains are very big, so you have this miniature countryside surrounded by the Himalayas, and it’s just spectacular. And it’s true, the people are very beautiful too.
Salman Rushdie
A. J. Styles is an incredible performer; very spectacular.
Kevin Owens
After my spectacular failures, I could not be satisfied with an ordinary success.
Mason Cooley
During the New Deal, liberals recognized that the ballot box and elected branches are generally the appropriate engines of social reform, and liberals used both to spectacular effect – instituting profound social changes that remain deeply ingrained in society today.
Neil Gorsuch
There are so many elements that make ‘Orange’ spectacular – the writing, the acting, what we talk about – but we can’t neglect the music of the show. It sets a fantastic tone.
Adrienne C. Moore
The history of Guitar Hero is pretty spectacular. Really, I don’t know of another franchise that has captured the imagination of the world so quickly and so powerfully and so positively in such a short period of time.
Dan Rosensweig
Just as China achieved much more than India in the realm of public health and education under an austere Communist regime, so its economic growth under a capitalist-friendly government strikes a visitor from India as nothing less than spectacular.
Pankaj Mishra
Over the years, I played with a couple of spectacular guitar players, and playing with them has made me play better than I knew how to play. I hope the same thing is true with acting.
Alan Arkin
When you look at what you get in a cable subscription, it is a spectacular value. For $70 or $80 a month is what it would cost a family of four to go to the movies one time.

Busy Philipps
With the discovery of Zinjanthropus at Olduvai Gorge in 1959, my grandmother Mary Leakey pioneered the research in East Africa with my grandfather Louis. Many more spectacular fossil finds have since been made, both in Africa and elsewhere, by many researchers driven to understand our past.
Louise Leakey
The only movie that I would ever even consider retrofitting is the first ‘Jurassic Park,’ which I think would look pretty spectacular in 3D. That’s the only one of my films that I would consider doing in 3D.
Steven Spielberg
The night sky, seen from a deserted foothold where no man-made light shines, is more spectacular than any giant cinema screen could ever display.
Steve Backshall

Karan Johar
In the hands of great school leaders, Teach First can make a spectacular difference.
Andrew Adonis, Baron Adonis

Chelsea Cain
Football is spectacular and it has to stay spectacular in every sense.
Marco van Basten
Being a part of ‘Hamilton’ is remarkably special. It’s a very powerful show that has spectacular emotional and political relevance.
Jordan Fisher

Laura Marano
I signed up for ‘Brothers & Sisters’ because I think it’s a really great show. I like my character, and I’m really interested in what he has to do every day – and this cast is so spectacular. I really wanted to work with this particular group of people.
Rob Lowe
I’m thrilled to continue the tradition of the spectacular, cinematic, horrifying, exciting and emotional storytelling of ‘The Walking Dead.’ I’m a huge fan of the comics, and started with the show on the other side of the set, as an avid viewer.
Scott M. Gimple
People put themselves in difficult situations in lots of different areas. What you count on is people taking every precaution. The aerospace industry is unique in this aspect because a thousandths-of-an-inch mistake can cause spectacular failures.
Mae Jemison
