I studied as an actor at the theatre conservatoire in Q

I studied as an actor at the theatre conservatoire in Quebec, but by the time I got to my third year, I was more interested in directing. There’s more to it than helping actors get round a stage: it’s a wonderful way of telling stories.
Robert Lepage
I studied Shakespeare in college, but not theatrically, more in terms of literature, and then I kind of took a break from it. Now there’s resurgence in my appreciation for him. It’s amazing: there are so many book titles and song titles that come just from lines that he wrote.
Julia Stiles
I picked up a lot watching Ultimate Fighting. I studied martial arts. But I had an idea to be different, to portray a character people would like.
Bill Goldberg
Portland is the perfect weekend getaway. I studied acting in Portland and lived there for five years. It’s a small city with so much to do. There’s beautiful scenery, a great bar scene, and so many fabulous restaurants.
Kenneth Choi
I have never sat down and studied the Bible, never consciously echoed its language, and am, in reality, as ignorant of it as most brought-up Christians. All of the Bible that I use in my work is remembered from childhood and is the common property of all who were brought up in English-speaking communities.
Dylan Thomas
I get mail from people all over the world now from people who tell me that they didn’t really understand Down syndrome, but because of me they have read about it and studied it and now they know a lot more about it.

Elizabeth Banks
A really interesting and happy time was when I first went to Florence as a student and studied Italian. I was living in a pensione on an allowance of £40 a month, which was princely. I did a lot of work and enjoyed myself immensely.
James Fenton
What would I have studied at university? Football!
Danny Welbeck
I originally studied graphic design and video production. I had wanted to be a programmer – I loved development and coding – but it turned out that I really enjoyed doing the frontend more than backend development.

Terry Bradshaw
Whenever I didn’t have a job, I studied acting, I sent out tapes, went on auditions.
George Eads
I learned by watching my favorite shows. I would just rewind and say the words back, until they sounded right to me. I never studied the American accent, in terms of getting a teacher or taking phonetics classes. I’ve always been a good mimic. It really wasn’t that hard for me.
Adelaide Kane
I studied physics at university, and I’m still a sucker for an experiment or scientific theory.

Mandy Harvey
I studied Hindi in school and that’s come in handy.
When I was in college at the University of Pennsylvania, where I studied international relations and French, I studied abroad in Paris for a semester. I think when you’re there, you can’t help but be immersed in fashion because it’s such a part of the city.
Stacey Bendet
I never studied, but I had the best teachers.
Mstislav Rostropovich
Well, American dialects have been studied for a hundred years or so.
William Labov
I studied English literature in the honors program, which means that you had to take courses in various centuries. You had to start with Old English, Middle English, and work your way toward the modern. I figured if I did that it would force me to read some of the things I might not read on my own.
Jeffrey Eugenides
It was in the Papal States that I studied the Roman Question. I traveled over every part of the country; I conversed with men of all opinions, examined things very closely, and collected my information on the spot.
Edmond About
I started singing when I was five. I grew up the youngest of four kids who all studied classical piano, so you could say I’ve been listening to music ever since the moment of conception.
K. D. Lang
I studied homeopathy for years and years. Herbs and all kinds of acupuncture, acupressure, alternative medicine. I think it’s just better to treat the whole person.
Sissy Spacek
I studied history when I was at school, at A-level, actually. I wouldn’t profess to being very knowledgeable though, no.

I love visual art. I painted for many years when I was younger. I have studied modern/contemporary Indian art a bit and am very impressed with the talent in India.
Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
You can’t be Eazy-E and not move a certain way, basically. So, I studied the culture of it, and also, one of my uncles is from L.A., and he’s great. He was like my performance coach. He helped me get the lingo down pat. He helped me get a lot of things down pat because I would talk in that accent for 10 hours a day.
Jason Mitchell
My father was a diplomat and served as Pakistan’s ambassador to 14 countries. I was born in London and grew up there and studied and lived in a hostel throughout in London and became a barrister.
Adnan Sami
I studied Judaism a lot. I studied religion in general, and I have never imposed my Judaism on my kids. They are what they want to be. I think… you must care for others. That’s the correct religion, I think.
Kirk Douglas
I’ve studied a lot of great people over the years – Pete Seeger, James Brown – and tried to incorporate elements that I’ve admired, though I can’t say I dance like James.
John Fogerty
The Hawaiian language needs to be studied globally as a language of life.
Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa
The album ‘Kelis Was Here’ sucked the life out of me, and so I went off and studied to be a Cordon Bleu chef. What’s great about food is that it’s less about who you know and what you look like, and more about if you’re any good.
I had an amazing French teacher in high school – it was the one class that I enjoyed. And I studied opera for 11 years, so I did a lot of singing in French.

Jenova Chen
I studied theater in college, and I absolutely knew that I loved acting, and I knew that I loved theater.

I studied what happened in the bond and the stock markets during previous periods when the Fed stopped manipulating the bond market. In every single case, the moment the Fed announced that there would be a cessation of intervention, stocks declined and interest rates went up.
Porter Stansberry
I actually studied literature and philosophy. So, when I started making films, I didn’t really know what I was doing, and I was too proud and arrogant to learn.
Pawel Pawlikowski
I don’t know the names of any pop musicians. Pop music is standardised; it’s made to please the largest audience possible. I also compose to please a large audience, but when you listen to my music, you understand that I have studied and applied the whole history of composition.
Ennio Morricone
Of all classes the rich are the most noticed and the least studied.
John Kenneth Galbraith
All of our colleges are free in Sweden, but this acting program is the second most expensive education for the government. It’s difficult to get in. There are around 1,500 applicants, and 10-12 applicants are accepted each year. I was accepted, and I studied there for five years.
Joel Kinnaman
I’ve always been interested in the politics of war. War is one of those things that, the longer I studied it, the more illogical it seemed.
Kameron Hurley
I think the best thing I ever did was, years before I got the ‘Late Night’ show, when I first got out to Los Angeles to be a television writer, the first thing I did was I signed up to take improvisational classes… And I studied that for years, and I really loved it.
Conan O’Brien
We’re really focused on being ‘of no time.’ We studied the idea of timelessness, looking at what designs in history have become timeless.

Virgil Abloh
The first chance I had to go to Japan, which was in the early nineties, I went to a Noh play. I thought, ‘This is very, very slow.’ I noticed lots of people falling asleep. I didn’t really know what was going on; I was getting a little sleepy myself. Then the more I studied it, the more fascinated I got.
William T. Vollmann
My first ambition in life, I made up my mind I was going to become Miles Davis. I studied music, music theory. I played trumpet for nine years. One day, my mother explained, ‘You can’t be Miles Davis. There’s one, and he’s got that job.’
Chris Gardner
I went to the Technion and studied with Avram Hershko. I found it more exciting than practicing medicine.
Aaron Ciechanover
I’m a Muslim Egyptian-American, born in Cairo. I grew up in Kuwait until the first Gulf War, when my family relocated to the United Arab Emirates. As an adult, I studied and lived in the U.K. before moving to Boston.

I studied dance at a high school arts magnet program before moving on to Miami’s New World School of the Arts, and from there, I went on to study at The Juilliard School.
Robert Battle
I always did plays, and when I went to NYU – and I didn’t go to Tisch, the theater school, because I was like, ‘Well, acting’s not realistic. You can’t make a career out of it.’ So I just studied general studies and humanities at NYU, but I was doing plays while I was there. So I was sort of cheating.
Steve Zissis
You have students in America, in Britain, who do not want to be engineers. Perhaps it is the workload, I studied engineering, and I know what a grind it is.

I became enamored with photography when I was about 13 or 14 years old. I’ve been at it ever since. I studied seriously in the ’70s.

Winnie Holzman
I should have been a much better artist if I could have studied more and amused myself less.

I never studied dance, but if you look at ‘Wild At Heart,’ my mother saw that movie and said, ‘You are a dancer. Look at how you’re moving: all that strange energy is like modern dance.’
Nicolas Cage
I studied acting throughout high school, then modelling took over because it brought more opportunity. When I quit modelling, coming back to Vancouver, I registered at the University of Victoria.
Cobie Smulders
I could be happy doing something like architecture. It would involve another couple of years of graduate school, but that’s what I studied in college. That’s what I always wanted to do.
Parker Stevenson
The ultimate storyteller is Shakespeare, who was able to get the ‘groundlings’ to laugh at his bawdy humor and storylines but could still be studied by scholars to this day for the complexity of his language, meter, and symbolism. That’s the real guy.
Jon Favreau
I was born in Toronto and studied with the National Ballet of Canada. I went to school to study dance, slept on the floor, ate nothing, waitressed – and then there was a Mary J. Blige audition.
Laurieann Gibson
When I was growing up, there were a few musicians who would have regular gigs at restaurants, and I always thought it was so cool and unexpected how they would spontaneously perform. Being the ambitious kid that I was, I got into it and really studied it. I was so inspired by it.
I studied with Seymour Rosenfeld, who was first trumpeter of the Philadelphia Orchestra.
Frankie Avalon

Manoj Bajpayee
I’ve studied nutrition since I was 23 and I began to find that a lot of my eating habits were to do with boredom and frustrations rather than hunger. When I was thirsty I would eat rather than drink.
Toyah Willcox
As I have studied the Bible and the Book of Mormon, I have come to know through the power of the Spirit of God, that these books contain the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Clayton M. Christensen

Martin Feldstein
The studied, unquestioning pace of my family irritated me.
Emanuel Celler
Layering in different patterns will keep things from appearing too studied.

My dad grew up in a mud hut and studied by candlelight. He was 14 when he got a scholarship to Russia. He was super clever – the cleverest person. He landed in 5ft of snow, and was alone at 14, studying science and engineering. He didn’t have a bed, and he slept on a table.
Throughout history, people have studied pure science from a desire to understand the universe rather than practical applications for commercial gain. But their discoveries later turned out to have great practical benefits.

Phil Hellmuth
I worked at Mark Foy’s during the day and studied drama at night.
Rod Taylor
I went to the Performing Arts School and studied classical ballet. That attitude is something that’s put into your head. You are never thin enough.

While I was at community college, I studied industrial design because I thought maybe I’d be an automotive designer – I grew up in Detroit – and I also studied, geology because I was interested in science, a little bit.
Andrew J. Feustel
I approach dancing from a different angle than those who begin dancing at 8 or 9. Those who have studied from the beginning never question anything.
Rudolf Nureyev
As educators, we are only as effective as what we know. If we have no working knowledge of what students studied in previous years, how can we build on their learning? If we have no insight into the curriculum in later grades, how can we prepare learners for future classes?
Heidi Hayes Jacobs
My mom studied biology and my dad studied chemistry and some physics and he is a physician, but he had a very strong interest in astronomy and astrophysics and exploration in general.

Johnny Vegas
I haven’t studied acting formally, so my ‘university’ was watching a lot cinema.
Ishaan Khatter
You see, I’ve never really studied acting.
Diana Ross
I studied music at school and played the recorder. Later in life music was a great way of supplementing my income because I was paid really badly as a young chef. Luckily an old friend – we did music at school together – and I formed a duo, The Calypso Beat, which later became the Calypso Twins.
Ainsley Harriott
For much of my career, I’ve studied health and how it’s intrinsically tied to lifestyle.
Dean Ornish
I’ve never been bored in my life, man. I’ve never been bored or lonely. Are you kidding? No way! I’m an orchestrator, a musician, a producer. I love everything. I’ve studied languages from Farsi to Greek to French, Swedish, Russian… How can you get bored?
Quincy Jones
So when my film career took off, I always felt like I was trying to play catch-up because I hadn’t studied acting before. I didn’t know how to manage money or my career. When I look back, I think I was a little bit shell-shocked.
Lea Thompson
I wanted to be Ronaldinho. I studied him a lot. He was my hero.
Sadio Mane
Hard science fiction, which is what I write, often is rightly criticized for having either negligible or unbelievable characterization, but the science I’ve actually studied most post-secondarily is psychology, and characterization is the art of dramatizing psychological principles.
Robert J. Sawyer
I studied at university for a term and a day, and then I dropped out.
Jack Garratt
I studied voice for about two years with an amazing coach, and I never rose above the level of mediocre.
Danny Strong
I was a professor at Princeton University. And, in that capacity, I studied for many years the role of financial crisis in the economy.
Ben Bernanke
Music is, of course, a universal emotional experience, cutting across cultures and languages. I studied piano for ten years as a child and consider that experience one of the most valuable in my life.
Alan Lightman
I studied with a blind teacher from about 5 until I was 16, at two different schools. From the age of 12 until 16, I was in a boarding school-which, I believe, at that time was compulsory for blind children.
George Shearing
People call me an instinctive actor. I used to consider that an insult early on, only because I had never studied. Now… I love it.
Danny Aiello
I have always studied my parts with the orchestral score and not with the piano reduction.
Placido Domingo
It’s weird because every movie that I do is always a role that reminds me of a role that ‘Pac would have done. And when ‘Pac did ‘Juice,’ he was young – probably like 21, 22 – something like that. And that’s my favorite actor. I know it might be weird to say, but he was talented on screen, and that’s who I studied.
Bow Wow
I never studied interior design, but I’m a creative person. And what we surround ourselves with is very important – what makes you feel happy, what makes your senses feel good.
Lynn Whitfield
Some Marines made fun of the fact that I had done plays and studied poetry, but then I won the award for physical training.
David Hunt
I went to Vassar College for undergraduate and studied literature and queer theory, and all of the above. And then I took a Fulbright scholarship in Russia.
Sasha Velour
In school, I studied psychology, linguistics, neuroscience. I understand that there is a real lack of respect for the brain.

I studied acting for 10 years before I went for an audition. I studied with Lee Strasberg and Actors Studio teachers, and went to the High School of Performing Arts.
Ellen Barkin
The Bay of Pigs is one of America’s most infamous Cold War blunders, and it has been studied, debated, and dramatized endlessly ever since.
Robert Dallek
I studied journalism and was idealistic as a student. In course of time, I learnt that there’s a lot of politics, and it’s not easy to put forth your point of view as an investigative journalist.
Nithya Menen
I went to graduate school with zero expectation. I kind of backed into it. I wanted to go back to school because I felt gaps in my literary background. I studied mostly twentieth-century English literature in college, so I thought, ‘Maybe I’ll go back for my writing.’
Susan Minot
I studied to be a chef as a side thing, a little hobby that I enjoyed doing, but I ended up falling madly in love with the food and the lifestyle.
Metaphorical tone deafness is when people are unable to discern what is of value in something. I think I’m tone deaf to poetry, for instance. Despite having studied it into a second year of university, most of it just leaves me cold.
Julian Baggini
I studied only till class VII at the Andhra Society High School, Wadala and dropped out when I realised that education was not my cup of tea.
Johnny Lever
As I studied in a girls’ school and a girls’ college, I am comfortable in the space where other girls are involved. If you see ‘Moggina Manasu,’ which was my first release, there were four of us girls sharing screen space.
Radhika Pandit
I’m a martial artist. I’ve boxed all my life. I work out. I studied Hwarangdo, which is a Korean style.
Laz Alonso
I loved New York. I made enough money and studied acting with Kenneth McMillan, which was my first formal training.
June Squibb
Josh Ozersky was a meat man. He knew meat, revered it, studied it, sang it, evangelized it, wrote about it, and, of course, ate it. Lots of it. Life, for Josh, was meat, and writing. Everything else was a side.
Tom Junod
I never actively went out and studied the American accent. I just came over here to the States, and it was something I was able to do. Like, I never struggled with it.
KJ Apa
I studied psychology at university.
Yasmine Hamdan
I studied natural resources planning and thought I could get a job at some marine park. But I was great at art and so-so at marine biology. It’s funny how the two eventually came together.
Stephen Hillenburg
From antiquity, Latin died but is still studied in seminaries and elite universities. So did Sanskrit in Asia. iI was replaced by Pali, but even Pali died, too. Linguists say the only ancient language which was resuscitated from the grave was Hebrew of Israel.
F. Sionil Jose
I studied violin when I was very young.
Lee Marvin
It might seem at first surprising that when I studied women and men talking at work, I found that women ‘interrupted’ each other more often than men did – when they were in all-women conversations.
Deborah Tannen
I studied classical music for a long time, maybe 10 years, and I realized finally I was never going to have the hands to play that stuff.
Leon Russell
The problem for me is that I’ve never actually studied photography, so it’s quite a steep learning curve. Cameras these days do so much for you automatically but I still think there’s a point where you should actually know the technical side.
Graeme Le Saux
And then we watched an amazing number of movies from the late ’60s and ’70s, which is my favorite time, and we studied their camera movements, their stocks, the way they lit stuff, the colors they used.
Ted Demme
I have a classical music background. I studied violin and trumpet.
Johnny Flynn
I watched a lot of Alessandro Nesta videos, as he had similar characteristics, studied carefully and applied myself.
Leonardo Bonucci
When I first heard the minstrel banjo – I played a gourd first – I almost lost my mind. I was like, Oh, my god. And then I went to Africa, to the Gambia, and studied the akonting, which is an ancestor of the banjo, and just that connection to me was just immense.
Rhiannon Giddens
I never had any social life, just played the piano and studied, studied, studied.
Imogen Heap
I was a Jewish rabbinical student for 12 years, and studied the Bible all the time.
Alan Dershowitz
Trauma and sexual abuse are two of our most pressing human and societal problems. They must be studied by unbiased scientific investigation rather than polarized by hysteria and politics.
Peter A. Levine
I moved out at 18. I always studied classes and trained a lot, you know. I think nowadays is such a different time because there’s so many channels promoting the celebrity aspect of things.
Vince Vaughn
I studied political science at the Ecole de Sciences Politiques in Paris.
Ingrid Betancourt
I had a drummer in my band who started teaching me tricks to come up with interesting rhythms. Because I don’t come from a musical background, I’ve never studied music, and I don’t know music theory at all, so a lot of stuff I discover on my own are things students would learn in the first grade of music.
Jens Lekman
We lived in a tough neighbourhood where there were gangs, and although my mum made sure I studied at school, they also allowed me to follow my dream to play football.
Roberto Firmino

Paul Stamets
I always liked clothes; since I was very, very young, I was interested. I studied costume as part of my theatre education.
John Malkovich
Some people just seem like they are up to no good. Like, in high school, I was a good student and got straight As. It was very strict, and you couldn’t do well there unless you studied very hard, but every time there was any trouble, I was the first person they would be talking to.
Elizabeth Wurtzel
I never studied anything, really. I didn’t study the drums. I joined bands and made all the mistakes onstage.
Ringo Starr
I didn’t go to university, and I always had in my mind that I hadn’t studied properly.
Elena Roger
I came from a really musical family. I studied classical piano because my grandparents were piano teachers, but started doing musical theater at age nine in Fresno, California, and went to a performing arts high school. That was my life.
Audra McDonald
What I always studied in screenwriting from my mentor John Glavin was that the most interesting characters are characters with shades of gray.
Mike Birbiglia
As a working-class girl, receiving free school dinners, I studied art history. Having never had the chance to visit art galleries, I devoured the knowledge, and it has served me well as a practising artist.
Cornelia Parker
Modern scientific knowledge appeared piecemeal. Historians wrote about human history; physicists tackled the material world; and biologists studied the world of living organisms. But there were few links between these disciplines, as researchers focused on getting the details right.
David Christian
I studied English at the College of Wooster in Ohio, and I did an M.F.A. in Poetry at Columbia.
David Means
My brother Gary, who was my coach, five years my elder, studied human movements at Queensland University in Brisbane. We used to train together every day, and we’d train for so long that at the end of a session, we would physically almost collapse.
Matthew Hayden
I had never written anything. And I had never studied writing. So my motives were pure: I had a great story… a courtroom drama that I sort of fictionalized, and that became ‘A Time to Kill.’
John Grisham
I studied to be a journalist, but I don’t think I would have made a very good one. I don’t have the work ethic.
Ben Howard
I studied performing arts at college and wanted to act.
Caroline Flack

On the one hand, young theatre directors were coming to television theatre, because they wanted to get closer to the cinema, despite having studied and worked for the theatre.
Andrzej Wajda
Over the years, I was lucky; right from the beginning, I studied with a lady who had a lot of… she was a classical singer, and of course, they’re a little bit more into, you know, preserving the voice, making sure your instrument is ready to perform.
Johnny Mathis
I studied in eight schools and did not get to be in a school for more than two years, as I was always requested to get out, even though I was not thrown out ever.
Ram Charan
I went to Maryland Institute College of Art, and I studied illustration there.
Noelle Stevenson
I started as a model in Mexico – I was traveling, but my base was in Mexico City. And then I studied acting for three years.
Stephanie Sigman
Even though I studied in New York and I know the American system, I come from France where I learned that with movies in France where the director is king. There’s no such thing as a studio edit. It’s the director’s cut, period.
Louis Leterrier
I studied harmony and composition in a very spontaneous manner.
Alejo Carpentier
Before taking up law, I studied medicine for six months and then tried my hand at fashion designing for another six months. I wanted to find something that excited me. Finally, it was law that captured my interest.
Mawra Hocane
I felt strongly that since the pursuit of good science was so difficult it was essential that the problem being studied was an important one to justify the effort expanded.
Paul Nurse
I studied English literature; I took 2 independent religion classes, but I wasn’t a religion major really.
Maggie Gyllenhaal
I’ve never studied anything formally. I was excluded from school at the age of 17, so I am an autodidact, which is a word that I have taught myself.
Alan Moore
It’s definitely thrilling to know that you studied for something, and then you went in, and tried to do your best, and then somebody dug what you did.
Paula Garces
I studied structured improv, where you start from one position and see where it takes you. I like spontaneity. If you set yourself up to do the same thing every night, you may not connect as well to a different audience.
Jillian Hervey
I studied architecture in New York. So, really I was very moved, like everyone else, to try to contribute something that has that resonance and profundity of it means to all of us.
Daniel Libeskind
It is not a question of whether I believe in voodoo. I am a scholar and, as such, I have studied the concept of voodoo. I have created the faculty of Afro-Haitian ethnology in our university where the concept of voodoo is taught. Voodoo is not superstition. It is a philosophy, a conception of God.
Francois Duvalier
I went to Elon University and studied musical theater. I usually did two musicals a year, but I also did a couple of plays. That was sort of always where I felt the most relaxation.
Chris Wood
I went to performing arts high school, and I took dance and acting every day. Then, I went to Marymount Manhattan College and I have a B.A. in acting, with a concentration in theater performance and a minor in musical theater. I studied there for three years.
Jenna Ushkowitz
The environment in which I studied was so safe, I thought I would die from the boredom of it.
Howard Jacobson
My dad owns a company that lends equipment to industrial projects. I’ve been obsessed with taking it over since I could talk. I’d follow him and repeat conversations about how many tons of cranes were arriving. He said it was a man’s world, so I studied electrical engineering because it was related.
Ruchi Sanghvi
In civilized life, where the happiness and indeed almost the existence of man, depends on the opinion of his fellow men. He is constantly acting a studied part.
Jeremy Collier
I was born in Seoul, South Korea; then I moved to New York City at the age of seventeen. In New York, I studied art and photography. I thought I would be a painter; then I saw Walker Evans when I was in college, and that had a great impact on me. Being in the darkroom making B&W prints was such a magical experience.
Sung Jin Park
If philosophy is practice, a demand to know the manner in which its history is to be studied is entailed: a theoretical attitude toward it becomes real only in the living appropriation of its contents from the texts.
Karl Jaspers
‘Othello’ was my first Shakespearean discovery. I was obsessed with drama at school, and I studied the play for my English GCSE. Desdemona is the part that everyone wants, but Iago’s wife Emilia is the one I’ve always been drawn to.
Michelle Dockery
I never studied jazz technically; I just know and love the music.
Mark Ronson
I studied philosophy at Columbia, then dropped out to do drama at the Lee Strasberg Institute.
Margherita Missoni
At school, we’d studied the Romans and the Saxons, and I was fascinated by it all. So I made my dad take me to the British Museum as often as possible.
Tony Bradman
The visual information of art history is going to students seamlessly, without the enormous trouble those of us who are older had when we studied art history many years ago.
Robert Nelson
I stay up on current events. I read ‘The New Yorker’ and ‘The Economist.’ I go to community meetings to see what concerns the people in my neighborhood. I studied literature in college, so I also continue to read poetry, literature, and novels.
Caterina Fake
I like to think that since I was about 19, I have studied human decision-making and problem-solving.
Herbert A. Simon
I’m big on story structure. I studied with John Truby, who mapped out story by means of moral wants and needs, and that’s what I do. Hey, so does John Irving.
Caroline Leavitt
As a graduate student I studied mathematics fairly broadly, and I was fortunate enough, besides developing the idea which led to ‘Non-Cooperative Games,’ also to make a nice discovery relating to manifolds and real algebraic varieties.
John Forbes Nash, Jr.
I studied all kinds of dance, all types of music. I got good grades. I started hitting the recording studio around 13.
Jason Derulo
I normally write on acoustic guitar, although piano is the instrument that I actually studied. Occasionally, I’ll write on the piano or sometimes with no instrument at all.
Adam Schlesinger
I came, I studied architecture in America, so my technical background’s completely western. But my seventeen years, the formative years of one’s life, and I can’t say that the Chineseness in me is not there.
I. M. Pei
I studied for my degree in London and consequently ended up spending five years away from Cornwall. I deliberately moved away from the coast to experience a different way of life.
John Dyer
I studied acting years ago; it was kind of a dream I had years ago, but I gave that up when I got married and had children.
Camille Grammer
I went to a college in New York called New Paltz. I studied theater there for four years. I also studied privately in NYC with a teacher named Robert X. Modica.
Aida Turturro
I studied political science and international relations and had the intention of becoming a journalist or work in foreign affairs. I had no intention of making a film.
Philippe Falardeau
I’ve never worked in my natural accent, having studied so hard to get rid of it when I moved to England as a child where I was bullied at school for ‘talking funny.’
Gina Bellman
I have been a scientist for more than 40 years, having studied at Cambridge and Harvard. I researched and taught at Cambridge University, was a research fellow of the Royal Society, and have more than 80 publications in peer-reviewed journals. I am strongly pro-science.
Rupert Sheldrake
I studied the philosophy and the discipline of non-violence in Nashville as a student. And I staged a sitting-in in the fall of 1959 and got arrested the first time in February 1960.
John Lewis
I studied history and English in college, got a master’s in writing, but I was always sort of an autodidact in science.
Anthony Doerr
When I was in my early 20s, I studied tae kwon do and hapkido. I earned brown belts in both of them.
Karen Bass
I finally overcame my phobia, and now I approach flying with a sort of studied boredom – a learned habit, thanks to my learn-to-fly-calmly training – but like all former flying phobics, I retain a weird and feverish fascination with aviation news, especially bad news.
Susan Orlean
I studied economics and thought I wanted to play with the stock market – my dad was a financial adviser – and I was going to go down that path. I was an intern at Smith Barney.
Jimmy O. Yang
I went to Princeton to major in comparative literature. I never went to film school, but I studied storytelling across mediums – poems, literature, film, and journalism.
Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi
At Oxford University, I studied languages so I could read the great novels as they were originally written. I took what in the United States would be a double major in Russian and French, but I have to admit that the pressure of getting through so many books spoiled reading for me.
Kate Beckinsale
I actually studied with The Groundlings.
Tyra Banks
Presidents need to be critically studied and analyzed.
Robert Dallek
The more the history of the World War and what led up to it is studied, the more clearly those tragic years become revealed as a vast collapse of civilization.
Arthur Henderson
I feel like I studied anthropology in college for a reason.
Zal Batmanglij
After the first exams, I switched to the Faculty of Philosophy and studied Zoology in Munich and Vienna.
Karl von Frisch
After high school, I moved to the U.S. and studied music in Boston, at the Berklee College of Music.
Ramin Djawadi
I studied drama in high school, and when I was 18, I studied at the Actors Studio in New York. Then I moved to London when I got engaged to Bryan Ferry, and I studied at the National Theatre there.
Jerry Hall
I’ve studied live shows and artists for so long. I got the tour documentaries and all that and watched them. I love a show. I love an artist that can do all of it.
Kelsea Ballerini
I have generally found that persons who had studied painting least were the best judges of it.
William Hogarth
I went to UCLA and studied studio art. I thought I was going to be a gallery painter, photographer, or ceramicist. Then, when I graduated, that didn’t happen immediately. I didn’t suddenly get solo shows in Chelsea, and I realized that is actually kind of difficult to break into.
Lisa Hanawalt
I started playing piano when I was eight, and I went on to study piano in school, so I have a background in classical piano and studied composition in school. Writing music came later.
Julia Holter
My parents had chosen the medical profession for me. I even studied a few semesters at St Xavier’s College, but at the back of my mind, I always wanted to be a musician like my father.
Zubin Mehta
I trained classically for 11 years and then studied musical theater at AMDA New York. My dad is a singer-songwriter, so I followed in his footsteps.
Madeline Brewer
When I was in New York after I left the Army, I studied for two years at the American Theater Wing, studied acting, which involved dance and fencing and speech classes and history of theater, all that.
James Earl Jones
I studied computer science and graphic design, yeah, so music was self-taught and a backburner thing, an obsessive hobby.
As a reporter in Israel, I have interviewed hundreds of people in its intelligence and defense establishments and studied thousands of classified documents that revealed a hidden history, surprising even in the context of Israel’s already fierce reputation.
Ronen Bergman
I studied acting in NYU’s graduate program, in which we covered everything from Ibsen and Chekov to August Wilson and David Mamet.
Andre Holland
I never studied anything about film technique in school. Eventually, I realized that cinema and theater are not so different: from the gut to the heart to the head of a character is the same journey for both.
Ralph Fiennes
I would have been an artist, because I studied art and history in school and college.
Gauri Khan
The reality of the music industry is that I was a 22-year-old college graduate who was able to walk into boardrooms and be the one in charge. It’s incredibly empowering. I wasn’t ready – I definitely was not ready – but I was prepared as I possibly could have been because I had studied the music industry.
Maggie Rogers
The Soviet Union had only one party. You couldn’t express yourself freely; you couldn’t admit belief in God. And yet this terrible regime understood that human beings have to express themselves, through music, even at a bad level. All kids studied music automatically, just as they did maths or languages or sport.
Andris Nelsons
The truth is I studied fine arts in Switzerland. I was just interested. I had no dream of being a movie star.
Sarah Carter
I don’t make things with my hands, although I studied woodworking and made furniture.
Frank Gehry
I studied jazz in college. I studied music history, and I have a degree in music engineering.
Lari White
I hate how things must be classified. How this is applied to musicians implies that they somehow contrive their products and have studied the demographics of the audience.
Trevor Rabin
I don’t think I’ve had any adversity. I mean, yeah, I studied hard in school, but that’s not adversity. Everyone in the Nuba Mountains has faced incredible adversity, every single one of them. Just to finish primary school is an incredible challenge.
Tom Catena
My father was not only a planetary scientist and a great popularizer of science, but he thought very deeply about the world. He was a scholar, he studied history. He taught a class in critical thinking, and he was very, very aware of the directions we might go.
Nick Sagan
I grew up reading the classic novels of Cold War espionage, and I studied Russian history and Soviet foreign policy.
Daniel Silva
I studied dancing for 13 years. And loved to dance. Always wanted to dance with Fred Astaire.
Lauren Bacall
For me, as a woman in one of the less diverse fields – electrical engineering, which is what I studied in college – it was hard to persist and really build a career. Some of the things I experienced were really scary, and they weren’t experiences that I wanted for my daughter.
Kimberly Bryant
At USC, when I studied film scoring my first year, one of my first friends that I met was Ryan Coogler. He was in the directing program at USC. He became one of my best friends at school.
Ludwig Goransson
I studied classical music in high school.
Lauren Ambrose
I didn’t find it that hard to channel the animalistic side of ‘The Woman’, I studied animals like apes and wolves, and researched how to throw off my feminine ways and just went out into the woods for a few days to learn how my body would feel if I had to do what she had to do.
Pollyanna McIntosh
I had actually studied political science in college. I had dreams of being a lawyer at one time.
Michael Kelly
Then I studied theology in college, and when I was getting a Ph.D. in literature, I took courses in New Testament studies and studied Greek versions of the Gospels.
Jay Parini
I haven’t studied history – I couldn’t give a discourse in medieval literature – but I am a personal historian, and I do a lot to take in the histories of the people around me.
Lucy Dacus
I studied and grew as a man so that the situation of being wrongly accused wouldn’t define me.
Brian Banks
I studied about the internment of Japanese Americans during the Second World War and about how the Constitution was written by men, many of whom were slave owners. So I suppose the travel ban strikes me as coming from an era I thought we’d left behind, but I guess we haven’t entirely left it behind.
Mohsin Hamid
I have studied and graduated out of Delhi. I moved to Mumbai after graduation.
Angad Bedi
Insurance firms have always carefully studied real-world data to figure out what, precisely, constitutes a risky activity.
Clive Thompson
I studied international relations in England, and I wanted to pursue higher education and be able to analyze what was going on in Iran politically, not only in Iran, but in the Middle East.
Shohreh Aghdashloo
I was born with a serious spiritual consciousness and for many years studied different paths.
Steven Seagal
I never studied art, but taught myself to draw by imitating the New Yorker cartoonists of that day, instead of doing my homework.
Bil Keane
Having studied in a girls school, I was always surrounded by women, all of who were strong-willed and came from army backgrounds, that played a very important role in my life.
Neeti Mohan
I really didn’t know how to eat until I studied nutrition in my second year of college.
Gail Kim
I am not a method actor, though I studied for a year with Lee Strasburg.
Ed Asner
I studied music formally. I was probably less formal about my study of acting than anything.
David Carradine
I studied with Strasberg, Elia Kazan. They raised the bar. They weren’t easy to please, and they made you achieve the best you could do. That’s what a teacher does: he infuses you with passion for something.
Martin Landau
I graduated with a B.A. from Goddard College in 1991 and then studied poetry for a year in the M.F.A. in Writing Program at Vermont College.
Jennifer McMahon
I’ve studied martial arts, but of course I’m not anywhere near the level of my father. Still, people assume I’m a lethal weapon anyway!
Shannon Lee
The more I have read the Bible and studied the life of Jesus, the more I have become convinced that Christianity spreads best not through force but through fascination.
Shane Claiborne
I studied B.Sc electronics to be an engineer and later did masters in communication and advertising. I loved engineering for what it could accomplish to make our lives easier. But, I realised that it was not my passion.
R. Madhavan
I studied law at university and was sort of grooming myself to go into that kind of career. I filmed ‘The Wedge’ while studying, which was very difficult, but I’m proud I completed my degree.
Rebel Wilson
Everyone knows what a curve is, until he has studied enough mathematics to become confused through the countless number of possible exceptions.
Felix Klein
I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior.
Hippolyte Taine
I studied theatre at Glasgow University and then was lucky enough to land a scholarship with a theatre group in Edinburgh.
John Tiffany
I almost got a psychology degree, I almost got a philosophy degree. I kept changing it so they couldn’t make me graduate. I studied anthropology and eastern religion, epistomology, and astronomy… I took every interesting course I could find for nine years.
Patrick Rothfuss
Gerald Boyd was a classic specimen of the self-made man. Born poor, he worked and studied his way up out of poverty under the guidance of his widowed grandmother.
Russell Baker
When I was 15, 16, I studied with Stella Adler at the Conservatory of Acting, then I stopped again and went to the Actors Studio when I was 18.
Robert De Niro
The thing to keep in mind is that’s how I started long before MTV and Twitter and Facebook. I studied at broadcasting school so I could learn how to shoot and edit videos, and tried to create my own television show so we could see through these wacky visions we had of funny bits we wanted to shoot.
Tom Green
I would like to give acting a go. I studied it for a long time; I just want to make sure when I do it I am able to put in as much effort as I do to modeling.
Adwoa Aboah
I moved to New York to be a theater actor. It’s what I studied and what I thought I wanted to do forever, as you do when you’re 18 and think you know exactly what you want. I was lucky enough to start working right away.
Stephanie Beatriz
I did some musical theater and studied a little bit of acting as well.
Kristian Nairn
My Uncle Nissim studied Kabbalah. Just before he died, he gave this tiny book, its pages yellow with age. He said it had special powers. I had a feeling that the book helped to keep me safe. My daughter is called Nissim after him.
Yossi Ghinsberg
I think race and racism is probably the most studied social, economic, and political phenomenon in this country, but it’s also the least understood.
Alicia Garza
I did study religion for a little while. I studied the Torah and the Holy Koran, Helios Biblos, which is considered by most people to be the Holy Bible. I just wanted to know, even with Buddhism and the Dalai Llama.
Kevin Gates
It’s funny because I never studied, I never took a class. So everything I do is very innate and organic; I don’t really have words for it. It is a communion with spirit. I don’t get in my own way and allow the character to do what it’s going to do.
Kimberly Elise
Designing was always something I was interested in. I studied fashion design in high school as well as how to sew.
Kourtney Kardashian
Most of the centenarians whom I have been able to see have been so defective mentally that all that can be studied in them are the physical qualities and functions.
Elie Metchnikoff
I did go to a film school in Sarajevo. I studied film and theatre directing. There was a war raging in the country while I was studying, and we did not have neither electricity nor cinemas for three and a half years.
Jasmila Zbanic
I studied for three years in the theater, and it was a very, very scary experience to direct live, being so vulnerable without the possibility to control things, to be so exposed.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
I wouldn’t have any fears about coming to England because I have played against English sides in the Champions League and studied the English game.
The market tends to pay as a wage what an individual laborer is worth. But the case last studied suggests the question how accurately the law operates in practice. May it not be an honest law, but be so vitiated in its working as to give a dishonest result?
John Bates Clark
My first contact with game theory was a popular article in ‘Fortune Magazine’ which I read in my last high school year. I was immediately attracted to the subject matter, and when I studied mathematics, I found the fundamental book by von Neumann and Morgenstern in the library and studied it.
Reinhard Selten
I studied music at Dakhhini.
Sharmila Tagore
As a teenage fisherman, I watched and followed terns to find fish. Later, I studied terns for my Ph.D.
Carl Safina
I studied music; I studied theater. I went to school for it, so I kind of treat it in that manner, that whether or not I can hang out, I’ve always been the one to go in my room and chill.
For a large number of problems, there will be some animal of choice, or a few such animals, on which it can be most conveniently studied.
August Krogh
It is not true that I invented what is called the Montessori Method… I have studied the child; I have taken what the child has given me and expressed it, and that is what is called the Montessori Method.
Maria Montessori
I’d studied English literature at university, but I was also far more enamored with Virginia Woolf, Katherine Mansfield, and James Joyce. That was my passion.
Felicity Jones
Nowadays, however, we recognize that simultaneously with the typical case of a chemical reaction a typical case of catalytic effect had been studied which constitutes a limiting case.
Wilhelm Ostwald
And so I have studied, I have to tell you, revolutions and uprisings for a long time. They are all slightly different, but what they all look for is some kind of a mechanism to go from an authoritarian system to an open, democratic system.
Madeleine Albright
But I studied art in Belgium from the age of 17 to 18, and I learned French when I was there. Very reluctantly so. I didn’t do a very good job. For the first six months I was very depressed and couldn’t speak to anyone, and then it kinda hits you.
Caroline Polachek
Although oyster mushrooms have been studied extensively and support health in a number of ways, it is also extremely important to always cook oyster mushrooms!
Paul Stamets
I’ve studied several guitar players and songwriters, mostly from Al di Meola to Dimebag Darrell, from Freddie Mercury of Queen to Kurt Cobain of Nirvana and Bradley Nowell of Sublime.
Mark Salling
I went to school and studied music for a year at USC, which unlocked a bunch of doors for me in terms of my relationship to music.
More and more NFL players have been willing their bodies to science so that their brains can be studied even if they die of other causes.
Jeffrey Kluger
The public library is where I studied. It’s where my grandfather taught himself English.
Gina Raimondo
I did plays because I liked plays. I studied psychology because I was fascinated by the subject, and I hope to keep doing films because I love the medium.
Jim Sarbh
It was fairly obvious to anyone who studied the situation that China was dumping bedroom furniture in the U.S. to the detriment of our American workers and manufacturers to gain market access and share.
Howard Coble
I went to college at Harvard, then did three years of graduate school at Yale. At both places I studied comparative literature. People find it odd that I went to both Harvard and Yale, and I guess it is odd, but that’s just what people did where I grew up.
Lev Grossman
Every fundamentalist movement I’ve studied in Judaism, Christianity and Islam is convinced at some gut, visceral level that secular liberal society wants to wipe out religion.
Karen Armstrong
The beginnings of my studies also came to me from my father, as well as from the Rabbinical Judge of our town. But they were preceded by three tutors under whom I studied, one after the other, from the time I was three and a half till I turned eight and a half.
Shmuel Yosef Agnon
I studied fashion at the London College of Fashion. I get involved in it as part of my own styling, so if I wasn’t a pop star maybe a fashion buyer or a stylist.
Rachel Stevens
I studied philosophy, religious studies, and English. My training was writing four full-length novels and hiring an editor to tear them apart. I had enough money to do that, and then rewriting and rewriting and rewriting.
Ted Dekker
Back in the day, I actually studied photography in Florence for a few months, and my photography teacher took away my digital camera and said, ‘No, use this – it’s analog and it’s square.’ It was a Holga camera, a very cheap $3 or $4 plastic camera. And that’s what inspired ‘Instagram’.
Kevin Systrom
I respect the fact that a director has studied the text and the road map of work before us, the subtleties, interconnections, underpinnings… His job is to paint the entire picture and knows all the colors that have to be in it.
Ruby Dee
I never studied writing, but I’d always been a reader and had a secret fantasy about being a writer.
Jon Krakauer
I graduated from the American Film Institute in 2010, where I studied as a director, and came out with a few features I really wanted to make.
Ari Aster
I’ve been a radio and television news person since I was 19 years old. I’m 57 years old now. But the advantage is that I have studied, investigated, and reported over those years on nearly every major story from wars and recessions to grass roots local issues.
George Noory
I was nerdy girl who went to Catholic school and wanted to be an engineer. I was all set to attend the Illinois Institute of Technology. And then I took a hard left turn and studied Liberal Arts at Northern Illinois University, majored in Communications. Then worked in radio as a disk jockey and as the weather girl.
Cindy Morgan
Here’s the thing: I fell impossibly in love with the Internet from the minute I saw it in action in the early 1990s. From that moment on, I have studied it, analyzed it, reported on it, and, mostly, have not been without it as a part of my daily life since.
Kara Swisher
I’ve studied authoritarianism for a very long time – for 40 years – and they’re started by people’s attempts to control the ideological and linguistic territory.
Jordan Peterson
I studied realism when I was in art school.
Peter Max
None of us takes amending the Constitution lightly. The plain fact is this amendment has been exhaustively studied and it really is time to act.
Sam Brownback
For decades, scholars have studied the ways in which implicit biases affect how we perceive other people in this multiethnic society of ours. The data consistently shows that about 90 percent of us possess some implicit prejudices – and, unsurprisingly, people typically favor their own group.
J. D. Vance
I studied the short story as part of my creative writing course at university but then set off as a novelist. Generally, there is a sense that even if you want to write short stories, you need to do a novel first.
Sarah Hall
What truly gives me joy is when I get a letter from a young woman who says they saw a programme, then read a book, then went to an evening class, and then studied a history degree at the Open University – and now I want your job.
Lucy Worsley
I studied physics 12 in summer school after I completed grade 12. Did I enjoy it initially? No, I had found physics difficult since grade 11, and I struggled a lot. Did I learn from it? Yes, and as I improved, I started enjoying it more.
Ann Makosinski
That’s something I learned in art school. I studied graphic design in Germany, and my professor emphasized the responsibility that designers and illustrators have towards the people they create things for.
Eric Carle
I’ve studied various schools of thought… I acknowledge that some Muslims consider music prohibited, but I’ve found a lot of evidence from the life of the Prophet to show that he allowed certainly, but even encouraged, music at certain times.
Cat Stevens
Storytelling is a universal: every culture does it. There’s a reason our religious books aren’t simply a list of shall-and-shall-nots. Morals and teachings are contained in stories, which are studied, dissected, and passed down; we remember stories in a way we don’t remember lists of facts.
Kameron Hurley
In the evenings I studied chemistry at the University of Chicago, the weekends I helped in the family store.
Jack Steinberger
I studied politics and economics at Bristol, and people always assumed that I’d go into politics or a non-government organisation when I left. I might well do this later on. I’d love to represent a West Country seat in the House of Commons.
Ben Elliot
I have studied religion, and I have concluded that there is some power. We don’t understand it.
Kirk Douglas
I studied at a university in Florence and finished my degree. My mother was very strict about this recipe: You need to get your degree.
Donatella Versace
When I studied graphic design, I learned a valuable lesson: There’s no perfect answer to the puzzle, and creativity is a renewable resource.
Biz Stone
If you Google me, you’ll find plenty of ‘dumb blonde’ references – even though I graduated with honors from Stanford and studied at Oxford University. I don’t let it bother me.
Gretchen Carlson
I went to university in Colorado and studied art history. I did some photography classes there, although it felt really pretentious.
Pamela Hanson
I’ve studied classical singing, but not to a great extent.
Floor Jansen
I’m very sensitive to the English language. I studied the dictionary obsessively when I was a kid and collect old dictionaries. Words, I think, are very powerful and they convey an intention.
Drew Barrymore
I didn’t live at school, I lived where I could and studied what I enjoyed studying. I took what I wanted from that education but was making my first record at the same time. I don’t know anyone from school. I was just leading a different life. I was really interested in writing and other things.
Lana Del Rey
I studied opera for a year at Georgia State University, but I wasn’t interested in that meticulous, technical approach to music. So I left school and went back to jazz.
Lizz Wright
I studied photography at Bard, but I just felt tired of it. Someone asked me to be in a video but didn’t want to be in it, so they told me to make my own, and that seemed more fun to me.
Gia Coppola
There are no movie references that I can think of in ‘Robopocalypse.’ However, there are tons of personal references. For example, the IP address that Lurker tracks actually goes back to the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, where I studied robotics.
Daniel H. Wilson
I studied percussion as a music student, and I didn’t have the best of timing, so I could never make it as a professional, unfortunately.
Lorne Balfe
I studied what principles under-laid peace and prosperity and concluded the only way to achieve societal well-being was through a system of economic freedom.
Charles Koch
During ‘Manchurian Candidate’ – that role originated with Laurence Harvey, and I studied everything he did. I would never be able to reproduce that performance, but I got a lot of ideas from watching it.
Liev Schreiber
When I studied at the Parisian cookery school Le Cordon Bleu, making shortcrust pastry was one of the first techniques I learned.
Rachel Khoo
I studied engineering in the national university, the Universidad Autonoma, in San Ildefonso.
Carlos Slim
I am someone who food has been a constant in my life, and it’s been a passion – it’s something that I’ve constantly studied – and I’m constantly trying to better my craft, and that’s good enough for me.
Antoni Porowski
Throughout school I studied in Tamil medium schools but it was only when I got to college that I realized that not learning English was a great disadvantage as I didn’t understand even the simplest of sentences.
Suhasini Maniratnam
I sing in Hungarian. I read Hungarian. I do not pretend to speak Hungarian, but I sing in languages that I have studied as languages. And I find that to be central and very, very helpful. I think if you’re not really cognizant of what every single word means, I think that might be a little tricky.
Jessye Norman
Do you think it is possible to increase your intellectual ability? For decades, I have studied the power of this belief to become reality and watched as the concept of maintaining a ‘growth mindset’ has taken root in education and parenting circles.
Carol S. Dweck
I started in college as a business major and finally transferred to home economics and studied making clothes.
Phillip Lim
I never studied with Balanchine, but his work was very important to me.
Twyla Tharp
After going to a few Keith Urban concerts, I thought, ‘I’d really like to learn how to play guitar.’ I studied Keith Urban a lot and how he performed.
Chris Lane
My dad met my mom at Casper College in the orientation line. He studied business and eventually transferred to the University of Wyoming at Laramie.
Dana Perino
I had studied violin from age 7 to 14.
Amar Bose
I went to college in Pittsburgh at Carnegie Mellon University… studied acting there. Then I went to New York for about five years. I moved out here about 10 years ago.
Laura San Giacomo
I really studied her singing, trying to see what it was about her that made her such a natural, incredible singer. Because sometimes as a singer, you really have to work to reach a certain note. And for Donna Summer, it seemed effortless.
I kind of connected the dots, like, ‘Oh, we’re just saying stuff. We’re just saying things that make sense, so let’s just say them like you say them in real life.’ It was my first and one of my only acting lessons ’cause I never really studied acting.
Megan Mullally
I’ve deliberately studied many things that I know, going in, I won’t be able to assimilate. I read Plato, St. Thomas, the mystics, to exercise my mind.
Don Ameche
I studied really hard. But Hollywood never appreciated my talent.
Mamie Van Doren
I’ve forgotten a lot of things. I’ve forgotten how to play the piano and how to speak Arabic, though I studied it for two years.
Amy Sherald
I started in high school, and in college, I studied radio, TV, and film. The plan was to be a filmmaker, and it was always comedy.
Seth Meyers
Education is a cause very close to me. What matters is encouraging my fans to focus on their education, because only an educated generation can ensure a better future. Even when I was on tour, I did my homework and studied.
Martin Garrix
I think having musical training as a child was really, really important. I studied piano as a child. Piano is a great instrument to understand musical theory on. I think I have that in my brain somewhere.
Corin Tucker
Ideas emerge when a part of the real or imagined world is studied for its own sake.
E. O. Wilson
I’ve studied Chinese in college, but basically, I’m not bilingual.
David Henry Hwang
My dad is from the army, and so we studied all over. I had done an Onida campaign at the age of two, as my mom always had this inclination for me to model, but my dad was clear that I could model only when I turned 18, so immediately after school, I started modelling.
Rakul Preet Singh
Normally, I could hit hard enough, as anyone who studied my fights might have known. But the impression was that I was essentially defensive, the very reverse of a killer, the prize fighter who read books, even Shakespeare.
Gene Tunney
I just didn’t really know who I was, so I didn’t really know what I sounded like. And so I did a lot of writing, and I studied abroad, and I fell in love, and, like… I got to be like any other college student.
Maggie Rogers
It has always seemed to me that Barack Obama has studied intensely and learned a great deal from Lincoln.
Tony Kushner
I studied fine arts and architecture, but I decided to move into movie design because I grew up in a small town in the Marche region and spent a lot of time after school in the movie theater.
Dante Ferretti
I was born in Paris, and my mother was a French teacher, but then I rebelled against my upbringing and studied Spanish in school. So now I just speak bad French and bad Spanish.
Lydia Leonard
I’ve studied human psychology my whole life.
Betty Buckley
I actually studied literature at university, so I’m much more of an arts-based person, but I remember I actually did enjoy physics because you got to do weird experiments. I remember we did this thing with static where we all had to put our hands on this static ball to see that your hair would all stand on end.
Felicity Jones
It was very lucky for me as a writer that I studied the physical sciences rather than English. I wrote for my own amusement. There was no kindly English professor to tell me for my own good how awful my writing really was. And there was no professor with the power to order me what to read, either.
Kurt Vonnegut
I studied method acting for four years and I’m a big believer in the idea that it’s not about the actual experience itself. You don’t have to go through exactly what this character has gone through.
Sam Levinson
I didn’t go to university. I studied theatre in high school and worked with Canberra Youth Theatre and The Street Theatre and other theatre organisations in Canberra, and that’s how I got my training.
Liv Hewson
I wouldn’t call myself a method actor, but I have my own method. I do my own research. I come up with a background for the character. I’m not a club man. I don’t like isms. I’ve never really studied Stanislavski.
Jeremy Irons
I didn’t really know how to make a film when I made ‘Control’. I had to create my own language, just as I did when I started taking photographs. I never studied either one.
Anton Corbijn
I studied at the Piccolo Teatro di Milano; I was a theatre actor.
Franco Nero
The experiences associated with death were seen as visits to important dimensions of reality that deserved to be experienced, studied, and carefully mapped.
Stanislav Grof
In my junior year, I studied geology on Saturday mornings at the Museum of Natural History. Mineralogy has always been a major interest.
Janet Yellen
For the first ten years after I got out of graduate school, I studied success. I read every book I could get my hands on and took every training I could find, and that allowed me to become an expert in this area. I learned how to create high self-esteem and success in my own life and in the lives of others.
Jack Canfield
What I thought would be fun would be Squirrel Girl being this computer science student, working in STEM, because you don’t see a lot of characters there, never mind female characters. Also, I studied computer science, so it’s not too hard to write.
Ryan North
I did my English A level in England, and we studied Shakespeare. I had great, great high school teachers, and we parsed the text within an inch of its life.
Joss Whedon
While researching ‘Horse Soldiers,’ I conducted over 100 interviews in the U.S. and in Afghanistan, and in Afghanistan, I walked and studied key sites that appear in the book. I was able to capture not only the Americans’ point of view but the Afghans’ as well.
Doug Stanton
In my own house, I rigged up a laboratory and studied chemistry in the evenings, determined that there should be nothing in the manufacture of steel that I would not know.
Charles M. Schwab
I get up at 7:30 and work four hours a day. Nine to twelve in the morning, five to six in the evening. Businessmen would achieve better results if they studied human metabolism. No one works well eight hours a day. No one ought to work more than four hours.
Kurt Vonnegut
I’ve studied the lives of the 20th century’s great businessmen and concluded self-confidence was instrumental in all their success.
Alex Spanos
Jazz is all about improvisation and it’s about the moment in time, doing it this way now, and you’ll never do it this way twice. I’ve studied the masters. Why would I want to play ball after the guys who sit on a bench? I want to play like Michael Jordan.
Brian McKnight
My background is economics and maths. I think one of the reasons I studied humanities at all, or even went into journalism, is because, like, science and maths wasn’t cool in England when I was growing up. No one ever talked to the engineering students at Oxford.
Nick Denton
I studied economics with some teachers from ESADE. It’s a really good school here in Spain. They helped me to understand a little about numbers, stats, economics, etc.
Gerard Pique
I studied jazz at home with my grandparents. They always had jazz dudes at the house, but I didn’t study formally. I just hung around a lot of musicians.
I studied poetry in college and for a year in an MFA program. As time went on, my poems got more and more complicated. What I was really trying to do was tell stories.
Jennifer McMahon
I studied communications, only because I could get my own show on the campus radio station. I never thought of it as a career. Music was always a really passionate hobby – it was like collecting DVDs or stamps.
I studied acting in school and then, of course, couldn’t get an acting job.
Denis Leary
Our military leaders have studied the climate change issue and now believe that mitigating climate change is an urgent national security issue.
Ted Lieu
So many able historians have worked over seventeenth-century New England that one would think there was little left to be learned from the people who lived there – fewer than 100,000 at the end of the century. Seldom, apart perhaps from the Greeks and Romans, have so few been studied by so many.
Edmund Morgan
In 1956, when I began doing theoretical physics, the study of elementary particles was like a patchwork quilt. Electrodynamics, weak interactions, and strong interactions were clearly separate disciplines, separately taught and separately studied. There was no coherent theory that described them all.
Sheldon Lee Glashow
I’ve studied documentarians extensively to come up with my own in-house style. I’m a student of Michael Moore’s films, of Eisenstein, Riefenstahl. Leave the politics aside, you have to learn from those past masters on how they were trying to communicate their ideas.
Steve Bannon
Harry Dean Stanton, Anjelica Huston – a lot of people have studied with me. It’s paying my dues.
Martin Landau
I studied classical guitar in school, and that type of stuff has led to writing for Kronos.
Bryce Dessner
I acted in high school and studied at the British American Drama Academy in Oxford for one summer. I minored in theater, and I was always acting growing up, but really, I was just more interested in the comedy of it all.
T. J. Miller
I have a degree in European history, which didn’t necessarily have any direct impact on my career, but I’m grateful I studied something other than acting in college.
Becki Newton
I studied, gained friends, became a father, faced the clipboard unexpectedly for the first time, earned some beautiful moments with family and buddies in Thiruvananthapuram.
The more science I studied, the more I saw that physics becomes metaphysics and numbers become imaginary numbers. The farther you go into science, the mushier the ground gets. You start to say, ‘Oh, there is an order and a spiritual aspect to science.’
Dan Brown
I studied voice at Yale with Blake Stern from the music school, and he had me singing German lieder and Italian songs.
Michael Cerveris
One of the cool things about traveling and being a musician is that you meet so many people who have studied different things and have different careers.
Frankie Cosmos
In fall 2007, I stood at the midway point of completing my undergraduate studies at Columbia. I studied every moment that I wasn’t sitting in class. I was very focused on maintaining a solid GPA, so I could go on to law school.
Ray William Johnson
I took up French boys and wine and I studied psychology.
Joely Fisher
My daughter has studied in London and when she came back, she wanted to be a stand up comedian.
Johnny Lever
I haven’t actually studied acting at all.
Kat Dennings
I studied religions and all kinds of other things in college. I took a Shakespearean villain course for English literature. It was really intense. I think that sort of rounds a person. In this business, it’s really important for us to be interesting… and have interests.
Chris Wood
To me, all writing is like music. And especially dialogue. I studied music in college; that is what I wanted to be, a composer. Acting got me sidetracked.
Dirk Benedict
I had studied at the NYU School of the Arts under Lloyd Richards, who also worked with the Negro Ensemble Company.
Bill Duke
Class I to XII wasn’t much help; I was always a mediocre student. But when I pursued higher education and studied economics with theatre or psychology with science fiction, I got a whole new world view.
Vir Das
The long view of the Census bureau allows some changes that are taken for granted to be studied in more detail. Everyone knows, for example, that people get married later than they used to.
Bill Dedman
I studied psychology in school, and I learned how to understand people’s feelings, how to get along with people and relate to people.
Vittoria Ceretti
I did theatre a lot when I was a kid. Then I went to acting school in New York. I did a lot of behind the scenes in college. I wanted to learn while I had the time. I studied theatre and film in different capacities.
Justin Bartha
I grew up in Muenchen where my father has been a professor for pharmaceutic chemistry at the university. He had studied chemistry and medicine, having been a research student in Leipzig with Wilhelm Ostwald, the Nobel Laureate 1909. So I became familiar with the life of a scientist in a chemical laboratory quite early.
Wolfgang Paul
Improv is mostly what I’ve studied.
Ellie Kemper
I studied acting at Carnegie Tech in Pittsburgh because I figured a good comedian certainly could act.
Albert Brooks
I didn’t just want to be Frank’s daughter who sang Boots. I take my music very seriously and studied very hard. It’s not a joke to me.
Nancy Sinatra
I studied carpentry for three years and passed all my qualifications. If it wasn’t for football then I would still be doing that. I honestly really enjoyed it.
Dwight Gayle
I was very shy and somewhat awkward. I studied too hard. And to have this exciting dorm life was a whole new thing.
Nicholson Baker
I decided to start acting in my mid-twenties. I studied pre-med, and I have a bachelor’s degree in Biology, so when I decided to pursue a different career, I got a lot of, ‘What on earth are you doing?’ But, I gave myself a year and thought, ‘You know what, I’m going to just beat the odds.’
Nazanin Boniadi
Yes, I mean like you know, having studied with Yehudi Menuhin that is like some direct route into Bach, because he was one of the foremost interpreters of Bach for the violin.
Nigel Kennedy
The issue of civil rights was too much for the establishment to handle. One of the chapters of history that’s least studied by historians is the 300 to 500 riots in the U.S. between 1965 and 1970.
Tom Hayden
For many years, I have sought and studied Agarikon, an unusual mushroom native to the old growth conifer forests of North America and Europe.
Paul Stamets
Most great leaders in history that I’ve studied always need to get as wide a range of opinions as possible so that they can have sufficient information to make the right decisions.
John McCain
I studied law, so perhaps I might have made it to the Bar, though I gave up that idea when I suspected playing a barrister was probably much more fun than being one.
Mark Strong
As an undergrad, I studied engineering physics at the University of Oklahoma, and all my degrees are from engineering departments. My father wanted me to join him in the oil-field business in Oklahoma, but I wanted to be a scientist.
Paul McEuen
The bubble, as investing phenomenon, has been well studied ever since the 17th-century tulip bulb frenzy. Its counterpart in bear markets is not well understood.
Kenneth Fisher
I studied music at the most remedial level when I was a kid, through the Los Angeles public schools, with a little private instruction.
I studied science. And I had a group of friends who were heavily into music and theatre.
Mohit Chauhan
I am an ocean lover and fish watcher and had studied marine biology and even taught marine sciences before I got into animation.
Stephen Hillenburg
I have always been restless. I have always been a seeker. It is one of the reasons that I train as hard as I do and I have studied as many disciplines as I have. I need to be challenged.
Frank Grillo
I did drama school in Delhi. I am glad I studied in a school where cultural activities were significant.
Pankaj Kapur
A book I would take with me to a desert island is ‘Paradise Lost,’ which I studied in college and hated so much by the end of the class that I never wanted to see it again.
Karin Slaughter
At Moscow’s Bolshoi Ballet Academy, I studied under a brilliant and fiery teacher. This tiny, stuttering old man flew into a rage if his students’ white socks failed to reach mid-calf level. Nor could he tolerate floppy hair. We wore hairnets to class – an athletic brigade of short order cooks.
Sascha Radetsky
My entire life, I’ve always known that I wanted to be a performer, but I didn’t know exactly how, where or when. I never learned or studied the craft, formally. I grew up doing martial arts and playing piano. But, something inside of me always said that I was going to do this, as far back as I can remember.
Laz Alonso
I had a normal upbringing, studied in Chaitanya Vidyalaya till class VIII, went to Australia for two years, returned and did my Inter at Oakridge. I wasn’t inclined towards academics. I barely scraped through.
Akhil Akkineni
I’ve always studied our empires to empower myself, you know, and to have ammunition against anybody who could try to put me down.
John Leguizamo
The DC 9/11: Time of Crisis film was hard to get the part; I had to audition three times. It was very serious and very sobering. We studied and tried to re-create all the stuff that we all saw that day.
Timothy Bottoms
I studied engineering in the national university, the Universidad Autonoma, in San Ildefonso. There is art everywhere, murals on the walls. It’s beautiful.
Carlos Slim
I went to uni, and I studied commerce on a scholarship, and that was crazy and wild in and of itself.
Cody Fern
I studied digital arts and graphic design, and then, at the same time I was studying, I was still doing auditions.
Nicole Maines
I studied mass media and brand management and was looking to do an MBA. When an acting offer came by, I thought I’ll do one film so that it would look good on my CV. Films happened one after another, in different industries. I’m so glad things turned out the way they did.
Kajal Aggarwal
I studied at the Hebrew University Medical Faculty, graduated, and was an Israel Defense Forces’ combat physician on a Navy ship.
Aaron Ciechanover
I loved statistics from a young age. And I studied very much in Sweden. I used to be in the upper quarter of all courses I attended. But in St. John’s, I was in the lower quarter. And the fact was that Indian students studied harder than we did in Sweden. They read the textbook twice, or three times or four times.
Hans Rosling
I grew up in Jerusalem and went to school here. I studied at the Hebrew University – mostly Islam and Arabic: Arab literature, Arab poetry and culture, because I felt like we are living in this region, in the Middle East, and we are not alone: There are nations here whose culture is Arab.
Yitzhak Navon
I was raised in a Bronx public housing project, but studied at two of the nation’s finest universities. I did work as an assistant district attorney, prosecuting violent crimes that devastate our communities.
Sonia Sotomayor
I have a degree in vocal performance, I’m a classically trained singer, and I studied musical theatre.
Shannon Lee
I studied dancing a little bit when I was young.
Stephanie Zimbalist
I fought as an infantry Marine on one of the Vietnam War’s harshest battlefields. After leaving the Marine Corps, I studied law and found a fulfilling career as an author and journalist. But again and again, I came back to the personal fulfillment that can only come from public service.
Jim Webb
I loved theater and went to Circle in the Square’s post-graduate program for two years and studied acting and directing and I loved it. I loved acting and directing – I really like directing a lot. Some days I think maybe someday I’ll go back and direct something.
Martha MacCallum
As a child growing up during the Korean War, I knew poverty. I studied by candlelight.
Ban Ki-moon
When I was younger, I was in love with everything about the British Isles, from British folklore to Celtic music. That was always where my passions were as a young girl, and so I studied folklore as a college student in England and Ireland.
Terri Windling
I have studied Freud and that kind of thing. I just never thought I would need it.
Margaret Trudeau
I was used to theatre classes. I studied with my mother; she was a theatre teacher and directed, too, so it was very family-like. Then I studied with a great teacher in Paris, and she was wonderful; she pushed me, but she was a warm soul.
Juliette Binoche
I was born in Beijing and raised in England and America. I studied political science in college and film in graduate school in New York.
Chloe Zhao
Eisenhower is my choice as the American of the 20th Century. Of all the men I’ve studied and written about, he is the brightest and the best.
Stephen Ambrose
I studied with Felix Blumenfeld, who had studied piano with Anton Rubinstein and composition with Tchaikovsky. Felix, my professor, was the right hand of Anton Rubinstein. Blumenfeld knew his playing by heart, from every angle.
Vladimir Horowitz
When I was first starting to write plays, I quite literally had never heard of the idea of studying playwriting. I wouldn’t have studied it even if I had heard of it.
Wallace Shawn
I studied at a grammar school and later at the University of Vienna in the Faculty of Medicine.
Karl von Frisch
I studied technique for ten years, from age 7 to 17. I guess you could say I went more on the Stanislavski side than the Meisner side – there’s always that wide divide among actors when it comes to technique.
Thomas Ian Nicholas
This is something I haven’t told many people, because it’s embarrassing. We always used to catch flies with our hands. I was the only one who could catch ’em. One-handed, two-handed. I actually studied flies. I’d watch ’em. How do you catch flies? They fly up. If I can catch that, I can catch anything.
DeAndre Hopkins
My childhood was spent in a typical Mumbai chawl at Girgaum and I studied at the nearby St. Sebastian School.
The current leadership of the Labor party react to the idea that working-class students might study the subjects they studied with the same horror that the Earl of Grantham showed when a chauffeur wanted to marry his daughter.
Michael Gove
I studied a truckload of true crime, praying for illumination, but most true crime relies on luridness and voyeurism for effect.
Poe Ballantine
I can move my characters through it easily, because I understand the background; I’ve really studied it.
Jean M. Auel
The September 11th, 2012, attacks on the State Department compound in Benghazi, Libya, is important and should be studied because in the big picture, it represents a failed foreign policy that spans across both Bush and Obama Presidencies.
Brandon Webb
Economists who have studied the relationship between education and economic growth confirm what common sense suggests: The number of college degrees is not nearly as important as how well students develop cognitive skills, such as critical thinking and problem-solving ability.
Derek Bok
I had great grades. Why? Because I studied twice as long and twice as hard as everybody else.
Adam Vinatieri
I studied journalism at Binghamton University, even interning for NBC’s longtime anchor Carol Jenkins. Before graduation, I told my parents I wanted to pursue broadcast journalism.
Sunny Hostin
I studied English at Princeton in the early eighties in what I consider a period of high obscurity. Professors and students ran around discussing the work of critics and philosophers that I doubt they’d read or understood.
Walter Kirn
Searching for alternative life on Earth might seem misconceived, because there is excellent evidence that every kind of life so far studied evolved from a common ancestor that lived billions of years ago. Yet most of the life that exists on Earth has never been properly classified.
Paul Davies
I studied theater in college, and I really wanted to be an actress and play a lot of different roles. Then I made landing on a television comedy my main focus.
Jenna Fischer
I was probably a B student in high school, but it wasn’t until I got to college that I said, ‘Oh! This is what it’s all about.’ And then I became an A student. I studied journalism in college and that’s what really kicked it into high gear for me.
Giuliana Rancic
One thing I learned particularly at Yale was how to work with others. Having studied so long trying to master myself, the biggest challenge was learning about the other person’s work.
Trai Byers
Love-making is an art which must be studied.
Ivor Novello
I got involved with an acting school and studied for a couple years. They used to have improv exercises that you would work on and you would do improvs.
Barry Levinson
On my first days here I did not start work immediately but, as planned, I took it easy for a few days – flicked through books, studied Japanese art a little.
Gustav Klimt
I’m an engineer. I studied physics and engineering. In fact, in 1978 I started working as an aerospace engineer with General Dynamics. I used to test cruise missiles, space systems, I worked on the first generation of cruise missile.
Edwin Moses
I studied business in the U.S. and later worked in Dubai.
Dulquer Salmaan
For years before my Navy enlistment, I had studied the Soviet Union and the KGB’s history of political intrigue in preparation for a career in intelligence.
Malcolm Nance
Like, in high school, I was a good student and got straight As. It was very strict and you couldn’t do well there unless you studied very hard, but every time there was any trouble, I was the first person they would be talking to.
Elizabeth Wurtzel
I studied chord theory and started playing the piano.
In no culture ever studied have women repeatedly preferred to mate with pear-shaped, low-status, tepid men possessing high-pitched, nasal voices.
Gad Saad
In a perfect world, you make a seamless transition from one great era to the next, but that rarely happens. I’ve studied these things: how do you go from the Aikman-Irvin-Smith Cowboys to the next era? I’m all for continuity. I wish we could have done it that way with Bill Polian, Jim Caldwell, Peyton.
Jim Irsay
I’ve studied a technique called the Sanford Miesner technique, that teaches you how to focus. It’s mainly about daydreaming. And the technique’s really about imaginary circumstances. Using your imagination to sort of daydream about stuff. It makes you emotional in a scene.
Sam Rockwell
Pauley Perrette: I was a criminal science fanatic and went to study it in college as well and I think that helped me on NCIS because I was comfortable with the language, I had studied criminal science in school for years.
Pauley Perrette
My favourite book – ‘The Good Soldier’ by Ford Madox Ford, which I have read about 20 times – is different from my favourite author, who is Iris Murdoch. I find her books exciting and unputdownable. Her characters are so carefully studied and in-depth; I love that.
Ruth Rendell
Having studied politics doesn’t necessarily give you political nous.
Jo Swinson
The talk-box thing that T-Pain does is something new and different for this generation because they don’t know about Zapp or Teddy Riley. I think he’s creative and has made the talk-box his own in the hip-hop world, but if these young ones studied their musical history, they’d know that.
Keith Sweat
I don’t want to be an art-house movie guy, where people who go to film school can discuss your work, but people who haven’t studied cinema can’t appreciate it. By the same token, I don’t want to be the guy who’s making this commercial pap that people lap up but that disappears the minute you leave the theater.
Jon Favreau
I tend to bristle at people praising alt comics as some kind of perfect comics paradigm, because there’s quite a lot of misogyny in its history as well. Like, in my first comics class, every single great comic creator we studied was male.
Noelle Stevenson
Growing up I studied classically and did lots of shows in school.
Idina Menzel
We all studied math, but we don’t go around spewing numbers. Religion should be used in the appropriate way.
Chris Ofili
When I met Bob Dylan, I was definitely impressed. This guy had come from the American folk world, but he was very schooled in poetry, too. He’d studied the Beat poets, of course. I grew up in the British bohemian scene. Dylan grew up in the American bohemian scene. So I was very pleased to meet such a guy.
I went to college at QUT: Queensland University of Technology. I studied for a Bachelors in finance and acting.
Brenton Thwaites
It was because of my deep concerns about nuclear weapons that I went to Hiroshima. And then I was astounded in Hiroshima to find that nobody had really studied it.
Robert Jay Lifton
I grew up in the hills and studied in college in Himachal Pradesh.
Mohit Chauhan
Even before I got to WWE, I studied Triple H. He was one of my favorite superstars; his wrestling was ruthless, and I think a lot of his style you can see in me a little bit.
I studied audio engineering at university. The background I am from, music was never seen as a viable career; it was always a hobby.
Chet Faker
I think of myself as a Russophile. I speak the language and studied the nation’s literature and history in college.
Chrystia Freeland
When I was 17, I studied at RADA in London for the summer. I wanted to live abroad and to pursue drama, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity. I thought I may as well throw myself in at the deep end. My first big role is in ‘Starlet.’
Dree Hemingway
When I was at N.Y.U., I studied abroad in Prague, and I learned about some of the European animators, like Jan Svankmajer and Jiri Barta. I didn’t think at the time that I would end up doing anything like that, but I certainly thought it was very cool.
Duke Johnson
I always liked photography in film – I studied photography growing up. I like the medium of film; I like physically holding 35-mm film. I like the way it looks, the quality when it’s projected. I like the way it frames real life.
Doug Liman
I had studied theater for three years in London when someone suggested me for the role.
Orlando Bloom
In particular, I studied German and Russian biomechanics.
Edwin Moses
After I began to explore what an actor actually is, I studied for three years before I had the guts to go on an audition.
Gale Harold
I’ve studied the game in every different aspect that I can.
Masai Ujiri
When I went to Harvard and studied planning, I found I didn’t have the skills or the strength to become the kind of public person who could go out and lobby government agencies.
Frank Gehry
I studied economics and made it my career for two reasons. The subject was and is intellectually fascinating and challenging, particularly to someone with taste and talent for theoretical reasoning and quantitative analysis.
James Tobin
I taught myself how to play the guitar. I never studied music.
Dan Hawkins
When I started out as a novelist, I thought I was going to be a private-eye writer. That was my intent, and that’s what I studied, I mean, scholarly.
Greg Rucka
I’ve always cared about how certain songs fade into other ones and which songs should follow others. I studied that as a consumer and fan before I even got into music.
DJ Premier
When I grew up, I studied karate for years. I got pretty strong, but eventually I had to acknowledge that I really didn’t like fighting at all, so I quit.
Alison Bechdel
My mother Elizabeth Ivey Brubeck was a pianist who studied with Dame Myra Hess and Tobias Matthey. As a child in California I used to listen to her play Chopin.
Dave Brubeck
After high school, I went to the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point for a year, and I studied musical theatre. By that point, I was like, ‘This is what I want to do.’
Laura Osnes
I’ve studied dance since I was very young, and I continue to study ballet.
Sarah Gadon
One day, I woke up, and I was on CBS in front of millions of people, and I’m like, ‘Oh man, I don’t know anything.’ The only thing I’d ever technically studied was filmmaking.
Matthew Gray Gubler
I studied French and English literature because I liked it.
Chris de Burgh
Bin Laden comes out of a business background – he studied public administration and economics at university, and he worked for his family company, which was obviously a rather successful enterprise.
Peter Bergen
I have a degree in music, yeah, from the University of Montana. I studied voice and composition and conducting and all that.
J. K. Simmons
It took me forever, learning improvisation, because I had studied with Lee Strasberg – I dropped out of Chicago and went to his classes in New York for a couple of years, once or twice a week. What I didn’t realize was I was learning directing because he wasn’t all that good about acting, not for me.
Mike Nichols
I studied in London, so I was high street fashion conscious. For me it was more about fitting in rather than standing out.
Soha Ali Khan
I grew up writing songs and producing music, and I studied music production in college.
Maggie Rogers
When I was young, I played the piano and studied classical music and jazz. I wanted to be a concert pianist, and if I’d devoted myself to it, I could have been. But it would have been too much work and a very lonely life.
Christopher Plummer
I arrived from Harvard, where I had studied philosophy and the history of ideas, with a bias toward literature and formal thought.
Robert Darnton
Good acting is good acting, however you learn it. Some people who haven’t studied are amazing. Some people like Leonardo DiCaprio are naturally gifted – he’s learned technique by working with people early on.
Sam Rockwell
When I first moved to New York, all I did was musical theater. That’s what I studied at Carnegie Mellon University.
Tamara Tunie
I studied a lot from bossa nova, and I used to listen to it a lot as a kid because my mum would play it. I even wanted to learn Portuguese in high school so I could sing in it.
Amber Mark
When I first started working, I was very aware of the fact that I’d been to university and studied Russian and French and not acting. So when I started working, I’d started working quite young, I felt like it was important to treat myself kind of like an apprentice and do as many different types of things as I could.
Kate Beckinsale
What I love more than anything in the entire world is making music. It’s what I studied in school.
Maggie Rogers
Initially, I studied philosophy, because it claimed to give you answers to the meaning of existence, but it didn’t: It was basically a semantics game.
Talulah Riley
I studied the Ghanaian drums and bongo drumming.
Ricky Reed
When I entered college, it was to study liberal arts. At the University of Pennsylvania, I studied English literature, but I fell in love with broadcasting, with telling stories about other people’s exploits.
Andrea Mitchell
I have studied at the school of the world.
Youssou N’Dour
When I was in college, I studied business because I thought I wanted to be a director and producer.
Manish Dayal
I grew up with another pretty darn good writer: Glenn Frey of the Eagles. We were very good friends, and we kind of studied it together.
Bob Seger
If I hadn’t spent many years trying to be as compassionate as Mother Teresa, as positive a thinker as W. Clement Stone, as prolific a writer as Stephen King, and as good a speaker as many of the legends I have studied, I would not be as successful as I am today.
Jack Canfield
It is clear that while our Army was engaged in Afghanistan and Iraq, Russia studied U.S. capabilities and vulnerabilities and embarked on an ambitious and largely successful modernization effort.
H. R. McMaster
I studied everyone in the business of entertainment: Dr. Dre, Diddy, everyone. Rob Dyrdek was big for me. He would get 2 million views a week on ‘Rob and Big,’ and from that sprung everything: DC shoes, Monster Energy, ‘Fantasy Factory,’ everything.
Jake Paul
I originally wanted to be an opera singer. I studied classical voice at the University of Washington but soon realised I didn’t have the instrument or the discipline. The road for opera singers is more difficult than for actors.
Kyle MacLachlan
I knew that the most important thing a man has is in his head, and from a young age, I often studied the head structure of each person, hoping to crack his codes. I considered a high forehead a gift from God.
Shimon Peres
To be taken into account were some years of schooling, where I studied with diligence Neptune’s laws, and these laws I tried to obey when I sailed overseas; it was worth the while.
Joshua Slocum
We studied the light source in the direction of the magnetic force, we perforated the poles of the magnet; but even in the direction of the magnetic lines of force we found that our result was confirmed.
Pieter Zeeman
Ultimately, the problem is that sex is perceived as a personal, intimate thing, not in the realm of science. But that’s not true. It’s physiology; it’s anatomy. It deserves to be studied.
Mary Roach
I studied the Bible and philosophy in college, and I think in a certain sense that’s the kind of stuff that still makes my brain work.
Win Butler
I studied martial arts before I studied dance.
Robert Battle
I don’t think I am an actor, because I haven’t studied to be an actress.
Yalitza Aparicio
To try to be at once a Lithuanian yeshiva and a New England prep school: that was the unspoken motto of the Maimonides School of Brookline, Mass., where I studied for 12 years.
Noah Feldman
When you’re working with the best of the best, I’m not gonna put that on hold so I can work with people who studied the best of the best.
Shia LaBeouf
I’m using my degree. You know, I studied English and American literature in college, and now I’m an American poet.
Eileen Myles
I feel really honoured and happy to be part of the P. C. Chandra team. It’s my first jewellery endorsement, and because I have also studied jewellery design, it’s something very close to my heart, and I feel very happy being associated with the brand.
Kriti Kharbanda
I studied English literature in university, and then I went straight into radio.
Miriam Margolyes
I never had any film training. I went to Northwestern. I studied education and theater. So it was all theater training.
Zach Gilford
I’d studied acting in New York when I left Pierre – that was the big thing that I did. I worked very hard at it, actually.
Margaret Trudeau
I actually wanted to be a doctor. But doing all those horrid rat dissections made me faint. I studied science till the 12th standard and later took up commerce. I was planning to do chartered accountancy, but fate had something else in store for me.
Bipasha Basu
My father was a great connoisseur of music and arts. He said, ‘I will encourage you in anything you do, but make sure you get a solid education.’ So, I studied in the finest schools and went on to become a qualified barrister but didn’t take up law because my music was my area of interest.
Adnan Sami
My family wanted church to be a place where we all went together. My dad was always traveling, and my mom was always working. School is where I did Bible classes and studied God.
Sofia Richie
NASA has hit a comet with an impactor, during the Deep Impact mission. The goal of that mission was to study the surface by making a crater and stirring up the surface material so it could be studied.
Carrie Nugent
I can walk into a room and create a good ambience. I was taught all about this back when I studied acting. One of the things they would teach you is how to send out positive signals when you enter a room. I am glad I learned this.
Jean Reno
I studied the cello for a long time, from when I was little up through college.
Lev Grossman
I come from a theater background. I studied acting at NYU and also the Groundlings in L.A.
Ashley Bell
I didn’t go to film school; I studied fine art – I learned how to be a filmmaker on everybody else’s money.
Steve Carr
Saddam Hussein admired, studied, and copied Stalin, the paragon of modern dictators.
Simon Sebag Montefiore
I wasn’t very good in academics, but I could have been if I could have studied well. I was a smart kid.
Virat Kohli
I acted in high school and studied at the British American Drama Academy in Oxford for one summer. I minored in theater, and I was always acting growing up and stuff, but really, I was just more interested in the comedy of it all. So for me, it’s always comedy, and then acting is just one medium of comedy.
T. J. Miller
I studied a month in Costa Rica and loved it. I’m not scared to go abroad. I feel like I can figure things out and I know what to do.
Kevin Olusola
Alice Munro is not only revered, she is cherished, her stories handled lovingly, turned over and over, gazed at and studied and breathed in with something approaching awe. She has never, over the years, written the way any of her contemporaries have.
Cathleen Schine
I went to Mexico for three months after college and studied Spanish there. And I went to Cuba and studied at the University of Havana. I loved studying in other countries.
Andrea Navedo
I studied broadcast journalism at Pepperdine University. After a short career in television with MTV and later on at FX Network, I found my true calling in Eventbrite.
Julia Hartz
As with other phases of nature, I have probably loved the rocks more than I have studied them.
John Burroughs
I studied Paul Simon’s ‘Slip Slidin’ Away’ and ‘Still Crazy After All These Years.’ I wanted to explore adult themes, portraying the hurt that’s in even a good relationship.
Being an actress wasn’t realistic. I knew that I was going to have to do it in a way that would speak to my parents. So I went to NYU Tisch School of the Arts for theater, and I studied at the conservatory.
Gina Rodriguez
The sense of acting being teamwork was a mentality that I took from school: I studied with wonderful people, and I wanted them to be proud of me.
Susan Lucci
When I got to college, my sister was starting work, and she realized she had two weeks of vacation a year, so she called me and said, ‘Go abroad.’ So right after my freshman year, I went and I studied in Guatemala, and I studied in Kenya, and I studied in Italy, and it was incredible.
Stephanie Ruhle
I was a dancer, so it was easy for me to dance in films. I had studied Kathak, Bharatnatyam, Kuchipudi, Odisi and Kathakali much before I even thought of becoming an actor.
Asha Parekh
My father was a musician, so I have a bit of rock n’ roll in me, but I’ve studied so many different styles of dance, and I have so many facets to my personality; I like to play around with fashion.
Ashley Roberts
I went to acting school in New York City for two years. I studied with Stella Adler.
Judd Nelson
One hero in my life that I’ve had from college on to now was Muhammad Ali. I studied his quotes, his style, and his strength. He was a revolutionary in every sense of the word.
Jalen Rose
I was fascinated by each area I studied, whether neurology, urology or surgery.
Tabare Vazquez
I studied and performed and even taught mime years ago.
Tom Bergeron
I studied neuroscience at the cellular level, so I was looking at learning and memory in the visual cortex of rats. Neuroscience mainly exposed me to a way of thinking – about experimentation, about what you believe to be true and how you could prove it – and how to approach things in a methodical manner.
Ze Frank
I studied really, really hard, rather boringly.
David Furnish
I studied classical percussion for ten years.
Alycia Debnam-Carey
I’ve never studied the classics, but I’d like to. My teacher offered to show me how the Greeks were able to sculpt someone perfectly. From there, you can go off and experiment – sort of like jazz. Once you learn to play anything, you can break the form and go and do something even bigger.
Channing Tatum
I went to college and studied writing, and I got involved in theater. It’s always been my passion.
Raymond Cruz
My parents came to America in the late 1960s because my father studied for a Ph.D. in Indiana. My mother joined him later. We had ancestors who came over at the turn of the century. One worked in a laundry, as is typical of Chinese-American immigrants.
Celeste Ng
I never studied sculpture, engineering or architecture. In fact, after college I applied to seven art schools and was rejected by all seven.
Janet Echelman
Every view, and every object I studied attentively, by viewing them again and again on every side, for I was anxious to make a lasting impression of it on my imagination.
Karl Philipp Moritz
My favourite actor is Daniel Day Lewis. He’s the finest actor in Hollywood. I’ve studied his performances.
Sushant Singh Rajput
I’ve stayed away from Twitter for a long time because I sort of didn’t trust myself with such an intimate but very public way of relating to the world, but I feel like I’ve studied it enough.
Elizabeth Reaser
In high school, we studied a lot of poetical forms. I was really interested in the math that was involved and the strange live break ups. That gave me a great amount of respect for a rhymed stanza.
Joanna Newsom
I had neither expert aid nor advice. I studied no courses in writing; until a year or so ago, I never read a book by anybody advising writers how to write.
Robert E. Howard
The world needs yoga. This stuff is powerful and intense. It has the power to harm when held tightly, studied without practice, and posed rigidly. Done right, it also has the ability to heal and cure.
Tara Stiles
I would say out of all the things I studied growing up, math was probably one of the things that I liked the least.
Hikaru Nakamura
When people ask where I studied to be an ambassador, I say my neighborhood and my school. I’ve tried to tell my kids that you don’t wait until you’re in high school or college to start dealing with problems of people being different. The younger you start, the better.
Andrew Young
I’d studied theater growing up and loved that, but didn’t have many examples of artists around me.
Brit Marling
I continued to suffer from anxiety and obsessive thoughts, although the thoughts stopped centering on hell. I moved into an ashram called the Himalayan Institute after college and studied meditation, which made an enormous difference.
Maggie Rowe
The first writer that I think of immediately that I studied with at Michigan is Peter Ho Davies. He was really important to me, tackling that first novel. Just writing it.
Jesmyn Ward
I went to high school in Columbia. I met my first wife, Richards, whom I married while I was working on a B.S. in chemistry at Georgia Tech. She bore Louise, and I studied. I learned most of the useful technical things – math, physics, chemistry – that I now use during those four years.
Kary Mullis
I’ve been dancing all my life and studied at Joffrey Ballet when I was 13 and singing all my life.
Melora Hardin
I studied social studies at Harvard, which makes it sound like I was in seventh grade. It was a choose-your-own-adventure major, where you could decide what you were going to focus on.
Jennifer Hyman
I’ve always been interested in beauty. I studied it when I was 16 and 17, and I know it’s a good idea to invest in something alongside my music.
Rebecca Ferguson
Since the days of Abraham many men of unusual intellect not only have diligently studied the divine plan, but have devoted their lives to having a part in making it known to others.
Joseph Franklin Rutherford
I never minded giving my opinions. They are just opinions, and I had studied music and I had strong feelings. I was happy for my opinions to join all the other opinions. But you have to be prepared for what comes back, especially if you don’t agree with the dominant mythology.
Wynton Marsalis
I studied business and also studied film, then I graduated, and I worked at a network. I was able to use my business skills there – I was an associate producer for a little bit.
