I ain't here to argue about his facial features. Or her
I ain’t here to argue about his facial features. Or here to convert atheists into believers. I’m just trying to say the way school need teachers the way Kathie Lee needed Regis that’s the way yall need Jesus.

Kanye West

Bryce Dessner
For years, I looked to Bruce Lee as a mentor as being a Chinese and Asian man living in this country.

Donnie Yen
The funny thing is I have known AJ Lee. She started in New Jersey; I worked in New York. We have crossed paths and she was always great with me and always sweet to me but obviously I went one way and she went to WWE.

Zelina Vega
Lee Chong Wei is no doubt the best men’s singles opponent I’ve played, and this gives me extra motivation to raise my game each time I play against him.

Lin Dan
‘Rent’ was a special project for me. It was my first notable screenplay job. I worked with two wonderful directors on it, starting with Spike Lee in the summer of 2001. I wrote a draft for Spike and he was really good to me.

Stephen Chbosky
I used to love, and I still do, Lee Ann Womack. And Alison Krauss. I mean, how many Grammys does she have? She’s just remained solid and true and great, and I respect that.

Kacey Musgraves
It’s ‘ow,’ like, you stubbed your toe. ‘Lee,’ like Bruce Lee. Then, you add an ‘e.’ Auli’i Cravalho.

Auli’i Cravalho
I’m a huge Ang Lee fan and a huge Larry McMurtry fan.

Linda Cardellini
I plug into a lot of old rock & roll. Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis – I love all that stuff.

Angus Young
Every child in every country in every small town should know who I am. There are a handful of people who have achieved that, and two of them are my idols Michael Jackson and Bruce Lee. I’d like to get to that level someday and touch as many lives as I can.

Tiger Shroff
Bobby Lee’s actions and his dealings with Bob Arum have convinced me that I am not being treated fairly by Bobby Lee.

Julio Cesar Chavez Sr.
One night I saw Jerry Lee, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and Elvis for a dollar, if you believe that, in an open-air concert. Presley, I got to meet and go into his house and so forth. My wife says I should quit tellin’ that story, ’cause they’ll know how old I am.

William Sanderson
When I think of Lee Rang, I also think of the death drive, ‘Thanatos.’

My first film that I got right after ‘Spring Awakening’ was called ‘Taking Woodstock,’ and Ang Lee was the director.

Jonathan Groff
Liberace – or Lee, as us friends called him – was great. He was gay, you know.

Debbie Reynolds
Pascal Lee is a true pioneer of Mars exploration.

Buzz Aldrin
Our love of kung fu goes back to the Bruce Lee days in the 1970s. Outside the action, we loved the interesting, heartfelt stories and the dialogue. It was RZA’s idea to draw all that in there as samples.

Lee Chang-dong, Park Chan-wook and Bong Joon-ho. I think the three filmmakers tell the stories that they really want to tell. Their movies always reveal what they think must be told. I have a lot of respect for that.

Lee Je-hoon
I absolutely love my cricket. I would watch it six, seven hours a day when Australia were playing. I grew up in a very spoilt era of Shane Warne, Adam Gilchrist, Glenn McGrath, Brett Lee, Ricky Ponting and others.

Neil Robertson
I was essentially raised on blues music. My dad was a blues musician around Dublin when I was a baby, so the only music I would listen to growing up was John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters. It’s music that feels like home to me.

It’s odd for me to compare my stuff to Lee Child’s, because I’m such of fan of his, and also because it’s curiously something I never did until I kept hearing about our protagonists’ similarities.

Nick Petrie
Spike Lee is one of my biggest influences. What I love about Spike, other than he’s just a fun guy to hang around, is that Spike is fearless. As much as people talk about him being politically outspoken, let’s not forget that he’s one of the best screenwriters, ever, in addition to being a visual master.

Cheo Hodari Coker
I’m 48, and I have been in love with vampires since I was six. I was born in 1962, so I’ve been through three or four waves of vampires. When I was growing up, we had vampire shows and movies. We were still dealing with Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff and the old Christopher Lee vampires.

Denis O’Hare
It is fun, I learned, to stroll around with Spike Lee and to gauge other people’s reactions. Everyone recognizes him.

Thomas Chatterton Williams
Patrick Henry aligned himself against ratification. So did Richard Henry Lee.

Douglas Southall Freeman
My girlfriend comes from a farming background and I spend a lot of time at her farm doing farming stuff. When you’re pulling lambs out, or weighing them or worming them or doing whatever you do to sheep you’re not thinking about Brett Lee.

Alastair Cook
Arnold and Jamie Lee must have worked over the years with directors that did 50 takes, because I’d get like three takes or so and say, Ok, that’s it, we’re done.

Penelope Spheeris
So many people – DPs, writers, and the assistants that go on to be directors and writers – come from the School of Spike Lee. He’s almost set up an Institution of Spike Lee.

John David Washington
I have played against many players, but I will always consider Lee Chong Wei as my toughest competitor.

Lin Dan
I fight like Bruce Lee. I train in his style of kung fu, wing chun. It’s all about fighting with controlled power, so you learn to punch correctly.

Lucy Griffiths
‘Boogie Chillen’,’ by John Lee Hooker – that is a riff.

Jimmy Page
Ang Lee is very precise. He will show you everything, and will let you know what he is thinking about the whole project. There are a lot of rehearsals before shooting, and you already reach a certain standard. Then he will ask for more.

Tony Leung Chiu-Wai
You can use martial arts to tell a different story. Ang Lee used martial arts in ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ to talk about love.

Jet Li
My favorite country blues player was Big Bill Broonzy. City blues was Freddie King, but I liked them all – Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Ralph Willis, Lonnie Johnson, Brownie McGhee and the three Kings, B.B., Albert and Freddie. Jazz-wise, I listened to Django, Barney Kessel and Wes Montgomery.

Alvin Lee
I don’t get it. If you’re saying, Tommy Lee, you don’t fit the image of the East Coast, social elitist wealthy people who comprise Harvard, the only thing I can say is you have no idea what comprises Harvard.

Tommy Lee Jones
I did a movie where my character was obsessed with Bruce Lee, so I learned everything about Bruce Lee, read everything, watched his movies.

Dakota Johnson
I always said I wanted to become a master of my game, like Bruce Lee. I mastered my art of football, because that’s what it truly is when you understand it.

Ed Reed
Just about every rock band and every guitar player from 1964 to 1984. To me, that’s the golden period of rock. From the first Beatles album hitting America to the last Van Halen album with David Lee Roth. That’s where all my favorite rock exists.

Paul Gilbert
If you like ‘The Nature of Things,’ or if you like ‘Quirks and Quarks’ you’ll certainly like Lee Smolin’s writing, and ‘Time Reborn’ is his latest nonfiction book, and it’s an absolutely compelling read. It’s worth the time.

Robert J. Sawyer
I bowled in tandem with Brett Lee, who produced some fast, fiery spells. When you’ve got someone bowling up above 90mph, it has a fear factor that not many people really enjoy.

Glenn McGrath
From Abby Lee Miller’s intensity and her students’ incredible performances to their devoted moms and its high drama, ‘Dance Moms’ has become one of the most compelling shows on television.

Nancy Dubuc
Rock n’ roll sounded like music from another planet. The first time around, we had people like Elvis, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis – all them people.

I was a pretty fit and physical kid, and my first interest was in martial arts and kung fu with all the Bruce Lee movies.

Dorian Yates
From our group, we’ve had joint ventures with a lot of international companies: Procter & Gamble, General Electric, Sara Lee, currently with Hershey’s and Tyson. We’ve learned a lot of the best practices.

Adi Godrej
The one thing Marvel does is think outside the box, going all the way back to Ang Lee directing the first ‘Hulk.’ They like to go outside the genre.

Anthony Russo
Until Lee Elder, the only blacks at the Masters were caddies or waiters. To ask a black man what he feels about the traditions of the Masters is like asking him how he feels about his forefathers who were slaves.

Calvin Peete
The thing about Spike Lee… that’s a deep experience to work with someone who is that intense and knows their vision that well. The character I play in ‘Red Hook Summer’ is super country and super loud. I suppose he is some version of myself.

Jon Batiste
I want to have a street named ‘Swae Lee.’ It doesn’t need to be a busy street.

Swae Lee
I couldn’t control Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Tom Watson or Lee Trevino. The only person I could control was me. The only person I could prepare for events was me. And if I didn’t play well, I didn’t play well, and I wasn’t going to compete.

Jack Nicklaus
The person that made me want to make movies, and the reason I do films, is Bruce Lee. He was an incredible actor, and he had a lot of charisma. Handsome, action, you know, everything was there. I loved Bruce Lee.

LL Cool J
I’m influenced by Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelly, Roland Kirk, John Coltrane, B.B. King, and then by bluegrass. But when I was 16, bluegrass wasn’t cool. We was rock n’ rollers then: Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis.

Dickey Betts
Subliminally, I had always wanted to act. Although I had only performed in a couple of plays, I was serious about it and was subsequently trained by people like Lee Strasberg and Elia Kazan.

Martin Landau
My dad was more tensed than I was a day before the release. Having learned that ‘Bruce Lee’ has released to the highest openings in my career, he has settled down.

Ram Charan
Like other guys my age, I liked Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee really was the original mixed martial artist.

Bruce Buffer
Most of the great directors I’ve worked with – De Palma, Spike Lee – like rehearsals.

John Leguizamo
The opportunity, number one, to work with Ang Lee is an amazing thing for me.

Sam Elliott
I heard Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis, and that was it. I didn’t ever want to be anything else. I just started banging away and semi-studied classical music at the Royal Academy of Music but sort of half-heartedly.

Elton John
If you ask most high schoolers who Bruce Lee is, they will say that it someone they sit next to in English class.

Seth Rogen
My little niece used to call me and say ‘I like watching that Uncle Darren, can I have a T-shirt of AJ Lee’ and I went ‘they don’t make any’ and it just struck me. We have Rey Mysterio for little boys. But we don’t have anything for little girls.

William Regal
Every tour we do, everybody’s always wondering, ‘What’s Tommy Lee going to do next? What new, wild and crazy thing is he going to come up with?’

Tommy Lee
When people say Jerry Lee Lewis invented rock n’ roll, they forget Little Richard. People talk about Elvis Presley and forget he was singing black music. I don’t blame Elvis. It was the music business figuring it could make more money from this music if it weren’t presented from the original source.

Ato Essandoh
I think you can’t really beat Bob Marley, especially the stuff he was doing with Lee Perry. Just that kind of clubby and dark and crazy stuff, even with the Wailers… Some of the songwriting was phenomenal.

Spike Lee is obviously more stupid than anyone can be by accident.

Dick Armey
I believe Lee Harvey Oswald did not kill John Kennedy. I believe that.

Jesse Ventura
Being Bruce Lee’s kid, everyone wants you to be an action-film star. I took martial arts, and it’s fun to do those types of movies, but I wanted to act, not fight.

Shannon Lee
I’ve always admired Bruce Lee for his trailblazing efforts opening doors for Asians in entertainment and beyond.

Justin Lin
The only thing Kevin Lee does better than me is talk and sell fights like that. I sell fights my own way, inside the cage.

Charles Oliveira
I am very close to my mother-in-law, Lee, we see each other often.

Carole Radziwill
I’d travel to Alfreton for games, and my dad, Lee, would drive. I’d eat my pre-match meal in the back. Mam would make chicken and pasta, and she’d stick it in a tub.

Jordan Pickford
I’ve been influenced by so many great people , like Sam Moore, Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, John Lee Hooker, B.B. King, so many great blues and soul artists that I completely revere. So it’s strange for me, actually, to hear somebody say, ‘Oh, I was deeply influenced by your music.’

Paul Rodgers
I did this movie with Spike Lee called ‘Sucker Free City,’ and that would have to be my favorite role by far. It was just so much fun to work with Spike and shoot in San Francisco.

Anthony Mackie
What’s true of the Marvel brand is that we’re not as invested in the cape and the cowl as we are in the individuals. That goes all the way back to Stan Lee, from the very beginning.

Jeph Loeb
I never felt Lee Strasberg could act, and I fail to see how someone who can’t act can teach acting.

Paul Henreid
My god-father, Bob Wall, was in a couple of Bruce Lee movies, and he trained Bruce Lee when he came to America.

Freddie Prinze, Jr.
‘Rent’ was a special project for me. It was my first notable screenplay job. I worked with two wonderful directors on it, starting with Spike Lee in the summer of 2001. I wrote a draft for Spike and he was really good to me.

Stephen Chbosky
I’ve dedicated a lot of my life to running the Bruce Lee businesses and continuing his legacy. Some people say I’m doing that to make money or to emulate him. That couldn’t be further from the truth; I do it because I’m inspired by his message.

Shannon Lee
We saw David Carradine, who is not of Asian descent, playing an Asian man on the show ‘Kung Fu’ that originally should have, and was developed for, Bruce Lee. To have that be the legacy that quote-unquote inspired ‘Shang-Chi’ in the beginning obviously doesn’t put us off to a great start.

Simu Liu
Have a little protection if that helps your bowler – Brett Lee always wanted a cover and a midwicket because they helped him bowl his natural length and made him more effective as a result.

Glenn McGrath
‘The Homesman’ is a really interesting movie that Tommy Lee Jones directed.

Marco Beltrami
Pamela Anderson Lee released a statement confirming that she has had her breast implants removed. Doctors say that Pamela is doing fine and that her old implants are now dating Charlie Sheen.

Conan O’Brien
I’m a huge Spike Lee fan. I saw ‘Do The Right Thing’ twice in the same night when it first came out and had long conversations with all my friends about the issues in it.

Joe Cornish
Jason Lee is the most famous actor from Hawaii I can think of.

Tia Carrere
I think one of the worst notes I think I’ve ever received was Ang Lee on ‘Brokeback Mountain.’ He came in on coverage, and he was like, ‘More, more handsome.’ I was like, ‘I’ll try that.’

David Harbour
My mom and dad played this music all the time when I was growing up, so to me songs by Jerry Lee and Fats Domino are the classics, they’re the best songs ever.

Chris Isaak
‘Bruce Lee’ is the fastest film in my career. But the quality is also very high. The last song was shot continuously for 24 hours. We worked like robots for that song, but the quality is outstanding.

Ram Charan
As a father, I always want my son to be perfect. When he was young, I tried to train him in martial arts, but he said, ‘I don’t want to become like Bruce Lee’s son, with everybody telling me how good my father was.’ I just think my son is too lazy.

Jackie Chan
The moment we finished shooting for ‘Bruce Lee,’ my wife Upasana reminded of a pending holiday.

Ram Charan
I was trained by, at the time, the toughest man in the world. Not according to him, either. His name is ‘Judo’ Gene Lebell, and he trained Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris. He’s the godfather of MMA.

Roddy Piper
I’ve always loved the blues, John Lee Hooker, Janis Joplin, Hendrix.

Eddie Money
I’ve been called ‘Bruce Lee.’ I’ve been called other less offensive, but equally stupid and racist kind of terms.

Randall Park
With almost no exceptions, art by men is much more expensive than art by women. Even great women artists, like Louise Bourgeois and Lee Krasner, are only fully embraced very late in their career.

Siri Hustvedt
Bruce Lee was just so lightning-fast. People try to emulate him in whatever way they can, but to try and do what he was doing… you’re just inspired by it; you’re not trying to say, ‘Look, I can do that.’ No one can do what he did.

Jason Statham
Yes, there were piano bands and great rock pianists, from Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard to Keith Emerson, Rick Wakeman, and Elton John. But something about the electric guitar speaks of more than music – it epitomizes and gives voice to the rebellion, power, and sexuality of rock.

Daniel Levitin
I grew up under the spell of London. Illustrator Kerry Lee’s evocative 1950 wall map of the city hung above our breakfast table at home in Canada. Over my corn flakes, I traced the capital’s high roads and medieval alleys.

Rory MacLean
I started out just as Elvis was going into the army, Jerry Lee Lewis married his 14-year-old cousin, and Little Richard became a priest.

Neil Sedaka
There’s so many players that I love and admire. Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, John Petrucci, Mike Landau, Robben Ford, Lee Ritenour, Jay Graydon, John Scofield, Warren Haynes – the list goes on and on.

Steve Lukather
When I got depressed, I watched Bruce Lee movies. I learned everything from Bruce Lee.

Jackie Chan
Today, one year after their divorce, Pamela and Tommy Lee announced they’re getting back together. You know what that means? There’s still hope for Ike and Tina Turner.

Jay Leno
My heroes are Robert Duvall, Forest Whitaker, Ed Harris, Tommy Lee Jones, Anthony Hopkins and Sean Penn.

Walton Goggins
Spike Lee gave me the greatest reaction to the fact that I was this athlete-meets-artist, because I think he saw that I was different. I learned that oftentimes, Spike directs in a sense that he might just stare at you and look at you in a telepathic way of communicating.

Omari Hardwick
There’s a lot of progress happening in TV. You have amazing shows like ‘How to Get Away With Murder.’ You have people like Shonda Rhimes, Lee Daniels with ‘Empire,’ and Jason Katims with ‘Friday Night Lights’ and ‘Parenthood.’ You have people behind the scenes writing complex women.

Jurnee Smollett-Bell
When I was growing up, there were so many things I thought were stylish. Jabo jeans, V Bombers, Clarks, Vikings, Nugget watches, Lee pants with the patches, leather hats – which I still wear now. All hip-hop stuff, all South Bronx stuff.

Swizz Beatz
Wong Kar-wai and Ang Lee are two Asian directors I’m really fond of.

Bai Ling
I’m an enormous admirer of Christopher Lee. He’s somebody, along with Vincent Price, who I celebrate, and I wanted my movies to show that celebration and that honoring of these great film stars that were unafraid to go into horror and Grand Guignol and the macabre.

Nicolas Cage
Tommy Lee Jones is hilarious. I would say, if you look at the body of his work, the character he is most like is the one in ‘The Fugitive.’ That’s how he talks and jokes. That is the type of energy he has.

Will Smith
I guess I feel like it’s a gift to meet those talented artists like George Lucas and Oliver Stone, Spike Lee and Richard Kelly. Even if it’s a small role, it’s a gift to be working that closely with them.

Bai Ling
We didn’t grow up in any sort of meaningful representation in media apart from, you know, Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Bruce Lee. But, of course, that was different still, because it always played to this narrative of the foreigner from the East.

Simu Liu
On a Spike Lee set, everybody seems to want to be there and is motivated to work in unison and do the best they can.

John David Washington
I was a big fan of martial arts movies – Bruce Lee in particular, as cringeworthy as it is. Jean-Claude van Damme was a big inspiration as well – it’s a little embarrassing.

Michael Bisping
It’s been a twisty-turny path for me. I was studying to be a history professor, and then I left that, went to film school, and tried to be like my heroes, like, Spike Lee and Hal Hartly.

Alan Taylor
Ang Lee was educated in the West and his English is good.

Zhang Yimou
I was a pretentious teenager, so of course I had, you know, ‘Raging Bull’ posters and all of that. ‘Raging Bull’ is not a pretentious movie, but me having the poster was a pretentious action. I even grew a goatee and had a Knicks cap, because I thought I wanted to be like Spike Lee.

Adam Scott
All I can say is Mike Lee is an embarrassment to the state of Utah. He’s been a tremendous embarrassment to our family, to our state, to our country to have him as a U.S. senator.

Jon Huntsman, Sr.
I’ll make a diet cheesecake, but I’ll put it in a Sara Lee box. Or I’ll have a huge bowl of pasta, but it’s actually just a cup of pasta – the rest is vegetables. It makes me feel less deprived.

Stephen Furst
My first western was ‘Death Hunt’ with Charles Bronson and Lee Marvin; that was where I learned to ride. The movie was based on a true story about a guy that eluded the Mounties in Canada. We were in Canada for six weeks riding horses.

William Sanderson
I think we have a good foundation which Mr. Lee Kuan Yew laid down, but you have to move forward. Now the question is what can Mr. Lee Hsien Loong and his team, and all our younger ministers can do now to build on the foundation which Mr. Lee Kuan Yew has built.

Tony Tan
Bruce Lee’s fast pace, Jet Li’s pretty style and Jet Li’s acrobatics combine with Muay Thai for my own style.

Tony Jaa
Working with Spike Lee was a dream of mine. It was amazing to be able to collaborate with such a visionary.

Teyonah Parris
When you think about the OG scream queens and all of the incredible women who have really defined this genre, such as Jamie Lee Curtis, they are all so talented and so multidimensional.

Jessica Rothe
Geddy Lee and I went to the same grade school. He moved away when we were still young, but I remember him like I do all my friends from back then. Then in 1982, Dave Thomas and I were approached to do a record as the McKenzie Brothers on Anthem Records, the same label that Rush was on.

Rick Moranis
Spike Lee listens a lot. He’s one of the quietest creative people I’ve ever met.

James McBride
Spike Lee’s been doing it for a long time now. We’re all standing on his shoulders.

John David Washington
I guess I’ve always been a groupie. My first date was a bull rider called Tommy Lee Bryant. We’d go to the rodeo every Saturday and Sunday. The bull riders were the cool guys.

Jerry Hall
Everybody watches Bruce Lee. That’s a legend. He’s the man!

I became a horror fan during the early 1960s, back when Hammer was putting out their groundbreaking ‘Dracula’ series with Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing, and grew up watching ‘Dark Shadows.’

Nancy A. Collins
On my radio show at night, people will sometimes – conservatives will call and say, ‘You know what, I’m really sorry I cast my vote for President Bush.’ And we play Brenda Lee and ‘I’m Sorry’ and ask them to sing along.

Alan Colmes
I’ve been fortunate. I’ve worked in a lot of things where I had those kinds of experiences with actors who were perceived as very macho guys, everybody from Lee Marvin to Charlie Bronson to Harrison Ford to Robert Shaw.

Carl Weathers
It’s a hard thing when you’ve got guns pointed at you, to still stand up for what you believe in. Jimmie Lee and his family did that, and several others.

Lakeith Stanfield
I will not programme generic orchestrations but try to find original ones – when I play Richard Rodgers songs, for example, I have Peggy Lee’s original orchestrations that I got from her granddaughter for them.

Michael Feinstein
But Patsy, she was a great, great girl. And Brenda Lee is a wonderful person, and her mama Grace. I’ve known those folks for years and years and years.

Mel Tillis
I have gotten nothing but love since I was diagnosed from the whole metal community. I guess that is true about both David Lee Roth and Eddie Van Halen. David was very kind to me especially when I was limping and falling and when my hands started getting weak.

Jason Becker
I’ve played such good golf, and it was hard coming up and it wasn’t easy in any matches or any shots. It means a lot. I think hopefully it will mean a lot to New Zealand because I’m the next winner of the U.S. Amateur after Danny Lee.

Lydia Ko
I just remember Bruce Lee blowing my mind on the screen, and I thought to myself, ‘That’s what I want to do for a living when I’m older.’ Bruce Lee was so magnetic and charismatic and held the screen so well.

Scott Adkins
In so far as I have any beliefs, I suppose I’m like that old Peggy Lee song, ‘Is That All There Is?’ I want to believe there’s something else going on, but what that something else is I don’t pretend to know.

Peter Ackroyd
The only time I commit to conspiracy theories is when something way retarded happens. Like Lee Harvey Oswald acting alone.

Joe Rogan
In my 20s, when I was acting, I probably had a little bit of a personality crisis in the sense that everybody related to me as Bruce Lee’s daughter.

Shannon Lee
My mum lives in Boston; she’s famous for teaching wushu and t’ai chi. So from when I was young, my mum and aunt were like: ‘You’re training; you’re not playing baseball or football.’ Training every day was normal. Later, when I was almost a teenager, Bruce Lee became my idol.

Donnie Yen
I love all the shoe shops in Covent Garden. Laura Lee Jewellery on Monmouth Street for delicate gold jewellery. Every time I get a part in an English movie, I buy myself a piece of jewellery from there.

Caterina Murino
When I have struggled with things like being Bruce Lee’s daughter, it’s his words that have guided me: his words that said that I just need to have faith in myself, believe in myself, and express myself.

Shannon Lee
Over my dead body when I’m governor of Virginia are we ever going to take down the statue of Robert E. Lee or Stonewall Jackson or any hero of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Corey Stewart
Over the years, I’ve come to realize that writing ‘I Ain’t Living Long Like This’ was an exercise in combined musical influence, mostly that of Hank Williams, Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, the Beatles, and Bob Dylan – artists no one has ever heard of.

Rodney Crowell
I like movies made by Spike Lee – doing those films out of the U.S., that is really daring.

Fahadh Faasil
‘A Spy in the House’, the first of Y. S. Lee’s ‘The Agency’ novels, is pure confection, an historical romp through England at the height of The Great Stink that imagines a secret spy ring for women tucked away where few notice but powerful factions clamor for their services.

Sarah Weinman
While the scars of the monstrous Civil War still remain, the wounds have closed since 1865, in large part, because of the civility of Grant and Lee.

Douglas Brinkley
When Lee and Jack win, it is good for golf. When I win, it is better.

Chi Chi Rodriguez
Will and Tommy Lee are the only actors I’ve ever worked with where neither of them want to say any lines.

Barry Sonnenfeld
My first Mr. Olympia was 1991 and that was in Florida against the great Lee Haney, who became Mr. Olympia in 1984, and I started training properly in 1983.

Dorian Yates
Sometimes I’ve done small parts, like with Spike Lee, but it doesn’t matter because you want to work with the director.

Monica Bellucci
Throughout the ’50s, tons of unknown locals came through Sun to record their demos. Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and Jerry Lee Lewis all made their first recordings at the former Memphis Recording Service.

Shawn Amos
I saw Farrah Fawcett originally when she and her boyfriend, Lee Majors, came over to my house for a birthday party that I was having for my ex-wife, Leigh Taylor-Young.

Ryan O’Neal
People would call me Bruce Lee or Jackie Chan or whatever popular martial artist there was at that time. I also remember the other kids at the lunch table freaking out when I brought in Korean food.

Randall Park
My theory in the ’90s was that I didn’t want to take a Jane Austen book I loved and reduce it to a 90-minute movie. The Emma Thompson-Ang Lee ‘Sense and Sensibility’ was beautiful, but other ones, I didn’t think justice was being done. It’s not a slam dunk to adapt these books.

Whit Stillman
Most frontmen are not born hams like David Lee Roth. We’re more like Joey Ramone: awkward geeks who somehow find our place in the world on the stage.

Chris Cornell
Lee Marvin was my godfather and a very close friend of my father’s. My father directed the very successful ‘Point Blank’ in which Lee Marvin starred.

Charley Boorman
That a great battle must soon be fought no one could doubt; but, in the apparent and perhaps real absence of plan on the part of Lee, it was impossible to foretell the precise scene of the encounter.

Edward Everett
I trained as an actor with Lee Strasberg, Elia Kazan, and Harold Clurman, and those guys set a very high bar.

Martin Landau
We’d play the American bases and found all these wonderful records by Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino, Sam Cooke. Without American music, there would not have been a British Invasion.

Dave Clark
I could be hit by a Sara Lee truck tomorrow. Which is not a bad way of going: ‘Richard Simmons Found in a Freeway in Pound Cake and Fudge, With a Smile on His Face.’ Let’s face it. We don’t know anything.

Richard Simmons
It would have been tough for anyone to adapt ‘Push’ – an amazing but wrenching novel by Sapphire – for the screen, and I think director Lee Daniels made interesting choices, particularly with Precious’ fantasies. In my view, some of them work and some do not, but they are definitely provocative directorial choices.

Yance Ford
Is there one blues guy who was the most sophisticated and influential, like Duke Ellington or Louis Armstrong in jazz? Was it Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Lightnin’ Hopkins, John Lee Hooker, B.B. King, Robert Johnson, or all of them? I think you have to pick all of them.

Steve Miller
I think Jerry Lee is sad. As a musician, he was far more talented than Elvis Presley. Everybody down in Memphis knows that. Elvis became a movie star because he was beautiful. Not that Elvis wasn’t talented, but Jerry Lee Lewis was incomprehensibly talented as a musician.

Alec Baldwin
‘Freaky Friday’ was really fun. They had a ping-pong table on set because Jamie Lee Curtis is really good at ping-pong. She’s awesome at it. And they had a tournament, and we would play during filming. Whoever won the tournament would get to keep the table. I think it was Jamie who kept it.

Cayden Boyd
I was a student of Stella Adler and then later Lee Strasberg, and they were into sensory work. At its best, acting is not about words – even when the words are important.

Mark Margolis
Other times you can get showy for three minutes, and that’s OK with certain films. But that isn’t right with an Ang Lee movie, you have to fit right in. You have to understand Ang, respect him and be part of the team and not be in charge of it – he is in charge of it.

Dennis Muren
There is a real Harold Lee.

John Cho
Everyone reads Harper Lee personally. For me, ‘Mockingbird’ was about admitting my own hyphenated identity – about loving and hating my world, about both belonging and not belonging to the community I came from.

Margaret Stohl
I’m not Ang Lee who knows so much about western market and the taste of western audiences.

Zhang Yimou
They did offer me a chance of being a V in the crowd, but it’s not my scene. I think they just thought it would be fun for me to do that, but I don’t know. I heard that Stan Lee appears in every movie of his.

David Lloyd
Writers of all things speculative have played in alternate and parallel worlds for a long time – everyone from Stephen King to Philip Pullman to Tanith Lee – and it’s an obsession that likely isn’t going away any time soon.

Kameron Hurley
I don’t want to be remembered as ‘the son of Bruce Lee’.

Brandon Lee
If you go on the Internet and type in ‘Lee Ryan one liners,’ I think I’m on par with Gandhi.

Lee Ryan
I remember watching Regis and Kathie Lee interview celebrities, and my mom looked so happy. I just did the math. I wanted to make my mom happy, and I wanted to talk to celebrities. Basically, I wanted Kathie Lee’s job!

Ross Mathews
When Kevin Lee’s name was brought up, I told everyone I thought this fight would happen. This is a good fight for me. It surprised me because nobody wants to fight in Brazil.

Charles Oliveira
Between Alan Freed in Cleveland and Bob Horn and Lee Stewart in Philadelphia and George ‘Hound Dog’ Lorenz in Buffalo, they began to find out that white kids liked black music. It was a very significant period of time before I got there.

Dick Clark
I’m sure everyone that has ever done an action movie has just drooled over how full of talent Bruce Lee was and how unique he was.

Jason Statham
Well, Tommy Lee Jones is a little bit more intimidating. He’s definitely a cowboy. He’s from Texas.

Christina Milian
Many people we consider legends, such as Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry, remain so scarred by scandals, injustices and regrets from decades earlier that they’re barely able to appreciate their accomplishments.

Neil Strauss
I look at the stories that Spike Lee tells… Great stories. Great director, great storyteller.

Tyler Perry
I’ve made my own music, and the way I’ve always described it is Peggy Lee with an electric guitar, or Billie Holiday with some PJ Harvey in there.

Evan Rachel Wood
The incurably suspicious Arthur Lee, youngest brother of Richard Henry, was of opinion that what others termed ‘errors’ in the Constitution were a deliberate scheme to create an oligarchy.

Douglas Southall Freeman
I’m connected to a Wesley Snipes, and I’m connected to Giancarlo Esposito because of the history of films that we’ve all been a part of with Spike Lee.

John David Washington
As ‘Warrior’ comes together, I can’t help but feel the pride of correcting a wrong and helping bring Bruce Lee’s dream project to life.

Justin Lin
Annie Lee Moss was a black woman who worked for the Army as a code clerk in the Pentagon. She was identified by an undercover agent of the FBI as a member of the Communist Party. Moss denied it, the Democrats sprang to her defense, and she has been treated ever since as an innocent victim of McCarthy.

M. Stanton Evans
On a day when you’re tired, it’s important to just say good morning to everyone so they’re kind of aware that it’s gonna be a good day. Jamie Lee Curtis told me that.

Lindsay Lohan
I am what I am as a writer because of Norman Lear and Spike Lee. Norman Lear in particular.

Kenya Barris
‘Malcolm X’ is my favorite Spike Lee movie.

Ron Stallworth
It’s the state of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. That is our heritage. It is what makes us Virginia.

Corey Stewart
The work I did on ‘Killing Kennedy’ was very meticulous and, in some ways, actually tedious. It was hard work because there is so much known about John F. Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald. To try to distill that into a clear narrative that’s interesting and tells two great stories was a real challenge.

Kelly Masterson
I have six sisters and two beautiful daughters – that’s eight women who mean the world to me. I support the Entertainment Industry Foundation and Lee National Denim Day because they fund programs that are making huge strides in breast cancer research and support.

Felicity Huffman
Not a moment had been lost by General Hooker in the pursuit of Lee.

Edward Everett
There is a battle between me and Lin Dan and Lee Chong Wei. We always do our best.

Chen Long
My musical education was grounded in blues and Chicago blues – John Lee Hooker and Otis Redding.

I remember when I was a kid, I’d watch ‘Kung Fu Theater’ on TV, and all the movies would star guys named things like ‘Bruce Lai’ – you’d never get the real Bruce Lee films. So when I finally saw ‘Enter the Dragon,’ I was like, ‘Holy cow, who is this guy?’

Justin Lin
I used to listen to country and western and blues, John Lee Hooker, spirituals, the Bluegrass Boys, and Eddie Arnold. There was a radio station that come on everyday with country, spirituals, and the blues.

Otis Rush
Bruce Lee was an artist and, like him, I try to go beyond the fundamentals of my sport. I want the public to see a knockout in the making.

Sugar Ray Leonard
I started working with Timely in 1946. Stan Lee hired me.

Dan DeCarlo
I would like to have a filmography of the late Lee Je-hoon’ list on Netflix or to have a DVD collection of my works. It would be a great honor.

Lee Je-hoon
But the courts have dismissed the lawsuits against me and Lee Brown.

David Dinkins
I’m John Lee Hooker in the sense that he was a blues man and he played blues his whole life. I’m a rock guy and I’m going to play rock music my whole life.

Sammy Hagar
Lee is such a brilliant rival. I treasure the opportunities we have to play each other.

Lin Dan
In Halloween, I viewed the characters as simply normal teenagers. Laurie, Jamie Lee’s character, was shy and somewhat repressed. And Michael Myers, the killer, is definitely repressed. They have certain similarities.

John Carpenter
Out of nowhere, they made an interim belt and had Lee fight Ferguson. This is very odd for me; what went on there? You know. I don’t know what went on there.

Eddie Alvarez
There’s a whole network of people, particularly in New York, obviously, that came up through the Spike Lee School. I’m one of them. That’s big!
