I became really interested in the study of consciousness.~Alex Grey


Study Consciousness Really

Until I read Anne Frank's diary, I had found books a literal escape from what could be the harsh reality around me. After I read the diary, I had a fresh way of viewing the both literature and the world. From then on, I found I was impatient with books that were not honest or that were trivial and frivolous.~Alexandra Fuller


World Reality Me

Popular kids don't necessarily know who they are because they're so busy trying to conform. It's the outcasts who are more attuned to who they are. They're more self-aware, more real.~Alexandra Robbins


Busy Trying Real

I love all reality TV - Strictly, 'The X Factor.' I really don't see why people are so snobby about it.~Alexandra Roach


Love People Reality

You can never connect on a deeper level if you idolise someone - you don't see the real person.~Alexander Skarsgard


You Real See

But if, if you take a look at what would have happened, I mean, do we need to see soup lines down the street to figure out what would have happened? We avoided - and all economists will tell you that millions of jobs were saved because of the Recovery Act, and we avoided a second Great Depression. That, that is a reality.~Alexi Giannoulias


Depression Great Reality

Anybody who believes and experiences their life and doesn't have shades of gray in it doesn't live where I live and is simply not in touch with the reality of the human condition.~Alexis Denisof


Life Reality Live

Television studios bet the farm on reality shows, where they didn't need any actors and movie studios had no plans for any quality movies that required the presence of me.~Alfre Woodard


Reality Quality Me

In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.~Alfred Stieglitz


Reality Photography Real

Reality Difference Little

When I was 12 and met my real father for the first time, I was terrified I would lose the one I already had.~Allegra Huston

Children Dad Reality

I don't really like fairies.~Amanda Hocking

Writing Reality Gift

Your mind can't always tell the difference between pretend and reality if you pretend too long; or if you go too deep and really believe in what you're doing. If you're going to be that kind of actor and go way out there, it's really important to take care of yourself and have a safe place, whatever that is.~Annabella Sciorra


Deep Yourself Reality

I'm getting to be a real pro at coming into things midstream and trying to catch up.~Aaron Ashmore

My music lives because of real players.~Abel Korzeniowski

New York as an industry is the best city for real estate. You're in a very transparent market. If you need to liquidate, you make three phone calls and you could sell something, even in the worst market. It is also less forgiving; if you make a mistake you can lose money.~Aby Rosen


Best Money Real Estate

Theater represents to me this phenomenon in juxtaposition to real life, where there are all these imposed guidelines.~Adrienne Shelly


Life Me Real

Everybody uses mime and gesture in real life, though we don't realize it. It's very useful as a performance technique, though it can be boring to watch on its own.~Anthony Daniels


Life Performance Real

Relationship Real Someone

Conducting! A subject, truly, concerning which much might be written, yet scarcely anything of real importance is to be found in books.~Anton Seidl


Real Importance Anything

We all like going to the dark side of things; we all like dipping into worlds that we don't know anything about, or hopefully don't know anything about. I think 'Banshee' gives people a chance to do that pretty safely because we all know there's a solid buffer between the show and reality.~Antony Starr


People Reality Dark

Television has a real problem. They have no page two.~Art Buchwald


Television Problem Real

Sometimes the picture that emerges of the man seems no longer to agree with our conception of the musician. In reality, however, there is a glorious unity.~Alfred Einstein


Man Unity Reality

What I find most satisfying about photography is the way in which it allows me to document 'reality' while at the same time creating my own version thereof; in other words, the reality I present is a reality based upon what I choose to include in the frame and what I choose to leave out.~Alix Smith


Time Words Reality

I'm not a real blond... Shocking.~Alona Tal

The reality is that we are hated not because of our democracy, freedoms, and generous social security system; rather, we are hated because of our involvement in foreign conflicts and quarrels that were never our concern.~Amir Butler

Book Reality Serious

Latinos come from different countries, and they tend to segregate with only their country instead of embracing all the other countries, because in reality, all the Latinos are going through the same experiences of discrimination and racism.~Andrea Navedo


Racism Reality Experiences

So far, everything I've worked on has been deeply connected to reality. I'm not constitutionally opposed to working on something completely fictional, either. It just happens that a lot of these stories have crossed my path in a way that makes them intriguing, but I'm up for anything that's intellectually engaging.~Andrew Jarecki


Path Reality Working

I really don't have a guilty pleasure.~Ann Marie Buerkle


Guilty Pleasure Really
