The movies I respond to are by guys like the Coen broth

The movies I respond to are by guys like the Coen brothers and Edgar Wright, where it’s hard to fit them into any one box.
Drew Goddard
Lizz Wright, we call her lovingly ‘Amazing Grace.’ She has a folk and gospel kind of approach to the music, and she writes beautiful lyrics and songs. She’s like this balm that is really full and very rich and deep.
Dianne Reeves
When I was in high school I saw Steven Wright, a brilliant one-liner comedian, and I thought: ‘That’s what I should do; I should write one-liners.’ And I did. My first album is mostly one-liners.
Mike Birbiglia
You could put all of Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s angry sermons on to one loop. You could put that loop up on the big screen at Radio City Music Hall and let it play there 24 hours a day, seven days a week and Barack Obama will still emerge as the next president of the United States.
Gary David Goldberg
I actually think I need ‘Homeland’ rehab. And that Ray Donovan. I think I’ve watched every episode more than once. Liev Schreiber, Jeffrey Wright and Jon Voight have made me fall in love with acting again.
Tasha Smith
The reason why the Wright brothers were successful wasn’t because they had the most resources, but because they understood how invention works. You have to iterate quickly, and you should be prepared to fail. Because things often don’t go as planned.
Boyan Slat
I do not regret the years I spent reading the traditional canon of white male writers in school. I do regret reading so little else there: Austen, George Eliot and occasionally Woolf, likewise Wright, Ellison, Hughes and Gwendolyn Brooks.
Margo Jefferson
I love Robin Wright’s character in ‘House of Cards’ because she’s a bona fide villain. She’s a not-nice person in a believable way; you can see her working in the world.
Gillian Flynn
Jeremiah Wright is one of the greatest prophetic preachers that black America has produced. What I find striking is that many white brothers and sisters miss the fact that there would be no black church if the white church wasn’t political and racist in refusing to worship with us.
Michael Eric Dyson
I got to work with Jeffrey Wright, which is fantastic. I started out starstruck, but he’s so cool, so it was all OK.

If the Wright Brothers were alive today, Orville would have to lay off Wilbur.
Robert Crandall
I was walking down First Avenue, heading to CVS. And two police cars pulled over and stopped, and rolled down the window and one of them asked, ‘Are you Isaac Wright?’ When I said yes, they immediately got out and asked me to take pictures with them in front of the police car.
Isaac Wright Jr.
Jay Wright is class personified. He wins with class, loses with dignity when he does, which is not often.
Chris Mullin
When I was captain, John Wright was making all the decisions and I followed like an obedient student.
Sourav Ganguly
As I went through ‘This Progress,’ one of two performance pieces by Tino Sehgal that transform Frank Lloyd Wright’s emptied-out spiral into a dreamy Socratic-purgatorial journey, the museum literally fell away. I was suspended in some weird nonspace.
Jerry Saltz
Those who closely watched the campaign should not be surprised by Obama’s hostility toward Israel, given his relations with pro-Palestinian, virulent critics of Israel and his voluntary membership in Reverend Wright’s decidedly anti-Semitic church. Furthermore, his campaign website featured anti-Semitic posts.
David Limbaugh
If the Wright brothers hadn’t put their lives on the line, we would not be flying around the world these days. So we need pioneers.
Felix Baumgartner
Technically, my first acting job was in one of my videos for a song called ‘Retrospect For Life,’ which Lauryn Hill directed and featured an actress by the name of N’bushe Wright, who played my girlfriend who was about to be pregnant. I remember being so nervous about it, but now I feel like I can conquer the world with it.
The first conversation I ever had about the Internet was in 1993 with Robert Wright, who was then a colleague at the ‘New Republic.’
Jacob Weisberg
Frank Lloyd Wright made houses right up until the end. I think that’s important because it gives you a direct connection to all the basic aspects of architecture – the spatial energy of the place, the construction, the materials, the site, the detail.
Steven Holl
Something I’ll always remember – when I was a kid, I shook hands with Orville Wright. Forty years later, I shook hands with Neil Armstrong. The guy that invented the airplane and the guy that walked on the moon. In a lifetime, that’s kinda wild when you think about it.
Jonathan Winters
And, finally, as a Republican, I believe it is important to keep our word and keep our covenant, and that is exactly what we should do with the Wright amendment today.
Michael C. Burgess
I’ve always loved Don Cheadle and Jeffery Wright and even Sam Jackson.

I loved playing for Coach Ambrose, and I definitely love playing for Coach Wright.
Jalen Brunson
Well, I called him and I said, Mr. Wright, what can I do? Universal offered me a contract $300 a week. He says take it. You’ll never get that money from me.
Anthony Quinn
As Fallingwater demonstrates, Wright’s genius was always specific, but also always lively, always daring.
Jane Smiley
There is something deeply disturbing about a popular culture that will not forgive the sins of the Confederacy seven generations past but celebrates the teachings and legacies of Che Guevara, Mao Zhe-Dong, and Jeremy Wright.
Tom Tancredo
A turning point in the public’s perception of the building art came with the publication of Frank Lloyd Wright’s ‘An Autobiography’ of 1932, a picaresque narrative that captivated many who hadn’t the slightest inkling of what architects actually did.
Martin Filler
Steven Wright can do Steven Wright very well. Not everyone can do Steven Wright’s jokes with the same results.

Ron Funches
The first play I ever did was with Michael Langham, Brian Bedford, and Colm Feore, at Stratford Festival. That was my first professional job, and I got to work with Garland Wright and so many great artists.
Elizabeth Marvel

Anthony Quinn
It seems to me that if Mr. Obama wins the presidential election, then Messrs. Farrakhan, Wright, Ayers and Pfleger will gain power for their need to demoralize this country and help create a socialist America.
Jon Voight
I think a lot of people have the Frank Lloyd Wright model in their brains. The architect comes in with this act of creation and lays it down, and that’s it. But that’s not me.
Thom Mayne
The Wright brothers flew through the smoke screen of impossibility.
Dorothea Brande
Work by Maria Blasco, Calvin Harley, Michael Fossel, Woodring Wright and Shay and Ronald Depinho in particular are of interest but there are literally thousands of articles relating to telomerase, telomeres and the biology behind it.
Liz Parrish
We spent a month in LA using a pool of musicians, a string arranger called Benjamin Wright, some great backing singers, and it gave tracks like Dynamite, which was written there, that kind of flavour.
Jay Kay
Obama is no different than Jeremiah Wright Jr., Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton – he’s just more polished and better at hiding who he is.

Marian Wright Edelman is a mentor and hero of mine.
Jurnee Smollett-Bell
The Wright brothers flew right through the smoke screen of impossibility.
Charles Kettering
I love Robin Wright so much. She’s one of my favorite actresses; she’s incredibly powerful.

No-one can replace Richard Wright – he was my musical partner and my friend.

That character called ‘Robin Wright’ in the movie called ‘The Congress’ has nothing to do with me… I’ve never felt that way about life choices, career, etc.
