I always have melodies flowing in my head – whether I’m just at home, at the mall, at a restaurant or wherever. I’m always humming along to the random melodies that form in my head. My friends always ask me, ‘What are you singing?’ and I’ll be like, ‘I don’t know!’

People be saying, ‘Watch – when she gets some money, she’s going to get a Gucci purse.’ But I don’t think that’s my style. I like finding random stuff and random brands. Maybe one day when I’m sophisticated and older I might settle down and invest in a nice leather handbag.

We can all fight against loneliness by engaging in random acts of kindness.

Ellie Goulding

Caitlin Moran
My career, definitely, the early years were a little scattershot, in terms of – it was a little regional theater, it was a lot of voiceovers, it was a lot of random day jobs. I mean, it was hard. It was hard to scrap around, and once ‘Hairspray’ happened, then it all kind of clicked into place.

Andrew Rannells

Aimee Osbourne

I don’t like accidental success. It’s what Bill Gates calls ‘random,’ a term he uses with the opposite of respect.

Masayoshi Son
I’ll see some random guy and really like how he’s locking his wrist when he’s shooting or how a guy is catching the ball. It can be a little reminder that that’s something I have to think about today.

Kyle Korver
I think that my ideas of the world are that it’s random and cruel but kind of quite comical really, and therefore the humour, in a sense, springs from that.

Alexei Sayle
My comedy notebooks are filled with random journal entries. It’s all the same. I can look back on old joke notebooks, and know exactly what was going on in my life.

Sarah Silverman
A favorite cooking method? I’m a fan of all of them! Anything that gets a pile of random ingredients into a cruelty-free dish works for me!

Rory Freedman
When I was a kid – and I don’t know why, it’s the most random thing – I wanted to be a speech therapist for little kids. I knew I wanted to do something with kids.

Haylie Duff
I buy a lot of random books, and it’s really hard to immediately fall asleep if I’ve been staring at a screen, so reading and trying to put my phone away maybe an hour before I go to sleep are two of my go-to strategies before bed.

Bria Vinaite
I know that a Christmas tree farm in Pennsylvania is about the most random place for a country singer to come from, but I had an awesome childhood.

Taylor Swift
I’m just trying to write a good story, strictly from imagination. People just think it’s random, they don’t see the rewriting, phrasing of characters, choosing the words, bringing the world to light in which the characters live in. That creates an illusion that this is real.

Eric Jerome Dickey
Anyone who attempts to generate random numbers by deterministic means is, of course, living in a state of sin.

John von Neumann
I always think about taking 10 random people off the street and trying to pair them. Probably a lot of them are not going to work out, but randomly one might. That’s basically what they’re doing on ‘The Bachelorette.’ Here’s 25 guys, see if you like one of them and it might work out.

Kaitlyn Bristowe
I was always playing the Hammond Organ back to front even during the days of the Nice, going back to 1968. Really what I was doing there, was choosing notes at random and trying to make some sense of them, improvising back to front.

Keith Emerson
I’m always much more inspired by random people on the street. I live down by NYU and The New School, and I’d almost say close your eyes and pull a student out, and they’re gonna be a little bit cooler than the average celebrity.

Michael Bastian
A great deal of creativity is about pattern recognition, and what you need to discern patterns is tons of data. Your mind collects that data by taking note of random details and anomalies easily seen every day: quirks and changes that, eventually, add up to insights.

Margaret Heffernan
It was not until I began to write a book called ‘Light Years’ that an editor really stepped in. The editor was Joe Fox at Random House, and he wound up editing a subsequent book.

James Salter
I’m not saying that players should go out and say random things, especially if they don’t know anything about it. But I think players do know more than people give them credit for. People do research, and people are entitled to their own opinions.

Jaylen Brown
With Joe Walsh, that was kind of random. I’d written ‘Hi-Roller Baby’ for myself while I was at Island/Def Jam; literally, four years later, it got cut. Songs can be around for a long time.

Everyone calls me ‘the male Jennifer Lawrence,’ because I just say things because I’m random, and I do things and I don’t care what people think. I think she’s hilarious.

Colton Haynes
Actually, I have this random fear, and it’s of bees and wasps. Bees and wasps actually scare me just a little bit. I’d rather have a snake or a crocodile, yes… I appreciate them, and I love them, but I have a slight fear.

Bindi Irwin
My dream was to play in good films, no matter in what country. I always waited for a decent script, and nothing has changed. I’m just sure that nothing in life is random, and I believe in the fate which guides you. Probably my starring in ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’ is good proof of that.

Yuliya Snigir
I read pretty much every graphic novel I could lay my hands on. Not only ‘Batman’ or ‘Daredevil,’ but random ones like ‘Black AF’ and ‘100 Bullets.’

Vikramaditya Motwane
Here’s what I’m going to say about that: my personal thought about the brilliance of ‘Peeno Noir’ as proven by the fans’ appreciation is that, when watched back, what makes it so exciting is the random locations and the random costume changes and the multiple shots that we’ve done all over the city.

Tituss Burgess
Maybe life is random, but I doubt it.

Steven Tyler
I was actually with Conor Oberst on tour, and we were walking down the street getting a coffee. I walked into a random hipster-y coffee shop and I heard my own song, and I was so stoked.

Phoebe Bridgers
Technology has changed, and we need to figure out how to improve the archaic way of what makes a hit, or how to determine how many viewers are watching beyond some people with Nielsen boxes in a small percentage of homes in random areas.

Jim Rash
My pet peeves are people touching me a lot. Random dudes grabbing me and slapping me across the back. They’re not doing it on purpose, but it’s like they forget I’m a person. But you can’t do anything about it. What are you going to do?

Rob Gronkowski
In all natural disasters through time, man needs to attach meaning to tragedy, no matter how random and inexplicable the event is.

Nathaniel Philbrick
Whenever it was spring break, someone would always have a guitar down at the beach, and they’d play a random song, and I’d sing. Eventually, hearing compliments from people saying I sounded pretty good stuck with me.

Cole Swindell
I did an open call for some random show, and afterwards, they said they wanted to meet me for a thing called ‘Hamilton’s Mixtape.’ I was like, ‘What? That’s not what I auditioned for, but cool, I guess.’

Anthony Ramos
What’s cool about Twitter is that you can make a joke about something very of-the-moment or random that I wouldn’t be able to joke about in stand-up.

Aziz Ansari
There should be a law that no ordinary newspaper should be allowed to write about art. The harm they do by their foolish and random writing it would be impossible to overestimate – not to the artist, but to the public, blinding them to all but harming the artist not at all.

Oscar Wilde
I often think of random melodies. And I pretty much hear in my head what I want to do with the orchestra as I’m writing on the piano.

Andrew Lloyd Webber
When I was young, I went with my mum to see some really random independent films, which really spoke to me: ‘My Beautiful Laundrette,’ ‘Secrets and Lies’… It wasn’t all arthouse, though!

Emily Beecham
I suffer panic attacks, anxiety attacks, seemingly random triggers that immobilise me, render me useless but simultaneously unable to explain myself.

Jack Monroe
I guess Twitter is the first thing that has been attractive to me as social media. I never felt the least draw to Facebook or MySpace. I’ve been involved anonymously in some tiny listservs, mainly in my ceaseless quest for random novelty, and sometimes while doing something that more closely resembles research.

William Gibson
There are many random, unprotected sites online that appear safe to use and are ready to accept credit card information. You wouldn’t give a stranger off the street your credit card information, so be extra cautious about who you are sharing it with online.

Alexa Von Tobel
An Internet meme is a hijacking of the original idea. Instead of mutating by random change and spreading by a form of Darwinian selection, Internet memes are altered deliberately by human creativity. There is no attempt at accuracy of copying, as with genes – and as with memes in their original version.

Richard Dawkins
It is rather fantastic to realize that the laws of physics can describe how everything was created in a random quantum fluctuation out of nothing, and how over the course of 15 billion years, matter could organize in such complex ways that we have human beings sitting here, talking, doing things intentionally.

Alan Guth
At the risk of sounding pedestrian, I’ll be completely honest: the first thing I do in the morning is check Google News, partially because it seems sort of random and unbiased and partially because I tend to stay in hotels that don’t necessarily have the fastest Internet connections.

I take random inspiration from everywhere.

Edward Enninful
Only engineers would do something like random mutagenesis.

Frances Arnold
Occasionally, chewing over some random letter writer’s dilemma, I’ll find myself imagining scenarios where the problem could be sidestepped by an innocent fib or series of evasive manoeuvres. Then, I slap myself on the wrist.

Lynn Coady
I have a giant baking book, so I close my eyes and pick a random page. Whatever it is, I try to bake it!

Nina Dobrev
Although I insist that God has always had the power to intervene directly in nature to create new forms, I am willing to be per-suaded that He chose not to do so and instead employed secondary natural causes like random mutation and natural selection.

Phillip E. Johnson
People say that New Yorkers aren’t friendly, but I think they’re more friendly than Londoners. Here there is a front-footed nature of Americans. You can go out on a night out and meet 10 random people and stay in touch with them, whereas that’s not going to happen in the same way in London.

Theo James
As a person, I am totally obsessed with the choices and decisions we make in our lives and how they dictate the course of our lives. Seemingly random choices that we make end up defining everything.

Andrew Haigh
If you take 10,000 people at random, 9,999 have something in common: their interests in business lie on or near the Earth’s surface. The odd one out is an astronomer, and I am one of that strange breed.

Martin Rees
If I stay in academia, I might end up going someplace random.

Lauren Willig
I get random meetings, like, ‘Ron Howard would like to sit down with you.’ ‘Really?’ If ‘Breaking Bad’ hadn’t happened, Ron Howard probably wouldn’t want to sit down with me. Because he would have no idea who I was.

Aaron Paul
The Internet is a big place where a lot of people can voice their opinions, and my mother chooses to pick fights with random people from all over the world who don’t have the nicest things to say about me.

Chris Evans
I actually think that the most efficacious way of making a difference is to lead by example, and doing random acts of kindness is setting a very good example of how to behave in the world.

Misha Collins
I miss people. I miss going anywhere and meeting a random person and saying ‘Hi’ and having a conversation about life. I love people.

Lady Gaga
I actually grew up watching ‘Survivorman’ and Bear Grylls. I know that pine needles are a good source of vitamin C and just random facts from watching the stuff.

Nick Robinson
I used to write random little stupid things when I was five, but then the first song I really wrote was one called ‘Fingers Crossed,’ which is on SoundCloud.

Billie Eilish
Online, I would never friend a random cute guy on Facebook or start liking his pictures on Instagram – even if I had a crush on him. But with Tinder, it’s like following or friending each other at the same time. The risk of revealing your feelings is removed.

Whitney Wolfe Herd
But I don’t want massive layoffs of anyone – public or private. We are planning on shrinking government through attrition and reform, not through random pink slips.

Scott Walker
A lot of things change when one is granted success: random people pop up, and a lot of the adjustments are rough. My way of coping with them is through focusing on the things that I have accomplished and the things that are yet to come.

Bibi Bourelly
At its best, entertainment is going to be a subjective thing that can’t win for everyone, while at worst, a particular game just becomes a random symbol for petty tribal behavior.

John Carmack
Scientific careers rely on inheritance, environment, and random events, like all biological phenomena.

Michael Rosbash
Most charter schools admit students by random lottery, making it impossible for them to pick only the best.

Rachel Campos-Duffy
I’ve never been convinced that experience is linear, circular, or even random. It just is. I try to put it in some kind of order to extract meaning from it, to bring meaning to it.

Toni Cade Bambara
One of the best things about paintings is their silence – which prompts reflection and random reverie.

Mark Stevens
One of my random skills is I have a very strong memory for dialogue and moments, and I don’t know why.

Jay Chandrasekhar
Random things are luxurious to people. It’s personal.

L’Wren Scott
It was tough times in Ohio when we lived there. My dad was between unemployed and just selling random knickknacks at a flea market. My mom was a cashier at a Chinese food restaurant. They both had awesome careers back in Taiwan, and they came here for my sister and I.

Chieh Huang
We may look back in horror that we allowed our children to be born of the random processes that nature provides.

Riccardo Sabatini
As a rookie you sort of don’t really know if you’re good enough, and then you start listening to a bunch of random things or just out looking for a bunch of random things that don’t help.

Xander Schauffele
I’ve outlasted many marriages at Random House.

E. L. Doctorow
The touring comic is a lonely soul, sometimes dabbling into conversation with a colleague in the green room, but on the whole, we just stand around and try to cope with the random diversity that comes with the ‘job.’

Rhys Darby
Wherever I go, people complain about what they see on television. Yet, if you are lapping this up because it’s random entertainment or from morbid fascination, you are enablers.

Barkha Dutt
The stock market is an exploitable market where being right means you get rich and you help the overall system error-correct which makes it harder to be right (the mechanism pushes prices close to random, they’re not quite random but few can exploit the non-randomness).

Dominic Cummings
If you’re not that big player, then nobody’s really gonna know who you are to promote the brand. If LeBron says, ‘Go buy this shoe, it’s amazing,’ I would probably go buy it. But if some random person on the street was like, ‘Hey, go buy this shoe,’ I probably wouldn’t.

Brittney Griner
I’m loving being part of the ‘Saturday Night Takeaway’ family. I’m in my element chatting to random strangers and taking them back to the studio – in a helicopter of all things.

Scarlett Moffatt
You can’t ever get sick on a soap: we work really long hours, the show is on TV five nights a week, and it’s random and chaotic.

Samara Weaving
The thing I love to do is take a good bath. I know it’s random but I love a good bath, a good face mask and just really take time for yourself to decompress.

Jordyn Woods
I have a Woody Allen Jewish attitude to life: that it’s all going to be disastrous. That it hasn’t all been that way is simply down to some random quirk of fate.

Antony Sher
It is necessary to fall in love… if only to provide an alibi for all the random despair you are going to feel anyway.

Albert Camus
If I’m on the road for Random House, I’m presenting a book with the hope people will buy it.

Elizabeth Berg
The world, when you look at it, it just can’t be random. I mean, it’s so different than the vast emptiness that is everything else, and even all the other planets we’ve seen, at least in our solar system, none of them even remotely resemble the precious life-giving nature of our own planet.

Chris Hadfield
I’ve worked at a lot of random places, which weirdly has influenced ‘Loki’ in some ways because we have this office culture kind of running through it. I’ve worked in a lot of offices.

Kate Herron
That’s the essence of pro wrestling to me, is the traveling, the road, going from Kalamazoo to the next random town.

Big E
The original concept for JTV was that we would give people a window into other people’s lives. The problem is that if that window is 24/7, when you look in at any random moment, odds are you are going to be bored.

Justin Kan
You cannot provide random content.

Vatsal Sheth
We’re tired of band videos where all you see is musicians playing in some random church or out in a desert.

Ivan Moody
Gawker thrived on embarrassment and shame, seeking to demolish not just celebrities or politicians but average random people whose sins it would expose for traffic and commenters who gloried in its actions.

Ben Domenech
I mean, French pharmacies are, I love walking in and just, I buy a lot of random stuff. There’s more pharmacies than bakeries, even in Paris.

Camille Rowe
I want to fly a jet. I’d love to just be in the air and go mach 3 or mach 4. Or, I’d be an underwater salvager. I’ve always been fascinated with the Bermuda Triangle and Atlantis. I love chemistry, also. That’s why acting is so random for me!

Kellan Lutz
The human brain has evolved the capacity to impose a narrative, complete with chronology and cause-and-effect logic, on whatever it encounters, no matter how apparently random.

Robin Marantz Henig
I was travelling a lot, during the release of ‘Dilbar,’ to various countries, and the song would be played at random places like lounges, coffee shops, streets, and I realised the song had reached levels that was beyond India.

Nora Fatehi
My favorite nights out are the most random ones – when they start at a bowling alley and end up someplace you don’t even know where. Those are my favorite – the most random ones that you don’t plan, when you meet up with friends, and you’re supposed to do something and end up doing something else.

Sara Sampaio
I want to make sure that when I walk down the aisle, I can see all my best friends, and I want to see their faces smiling back at me and not any random people.

Holly Branson
The days I’m not doing videos, I always have random stuff. We do production meeting stuff. Those are so stupid. Everyone’s like, ‘We like you; we don’t know what to do with you.’ I’m like, ‘Cool.’

Jenna Marbles
Once or twice, I’ve taken the Gideon Bible out of the drawer, opened it at random, and found myself stuck in the middle of a genealogical list. And that’s when I thought: why not cherry-pick the best bits, passages that people can actually use?

Stephen Hough
I was driving along and I got a random call on my way to my mother in law’s for dinner and it was Drake. He wanted to help and he said he’d do anything to get ‘Top Boy’ back on screens and then got a call from Netflix, who wanted to do the show. For U.K. culture, it’s a huge thing.

Ashley Walters
It’s a lot of random situations that combine in a certain volatile form and create a bigger-than- the-whole situation that nobody could have predicted.

Paul Kantner
Big companies are like marching bands. Even if half the band is playing random notes, it still sounds kind of like music. The concealment of failure is built into them.

Douglas Coupland
Indeed, eventually, random outcomes all revert to the mean, meaning that streaks eventually end. Understanding this is a key part of intelligent and rational investing.

Barry Ritholtz
I just do a random roulette wheel version of what I’ve recorded or sometimes tunes I haven’t recorded. It’s a collection of whatever happens, happens.

Leon Redbone
But you know, I really like to present the songs on an album as a story, as something thematic, rather than something you’d put on a random shuffle.

Pegi Young
When I have a bad day, I dream about opening up a gelato stand on the streets of Sydney, Australia. Doesn’t everyone have a random escape fantasy?

Nancy Lublin
I don’t want to be one of those people that’s constantly promoting myself on Twitter. I think the fun thing about Twitter is being able to share all the little random things that happen in my life.

Bridgit Mendler
But in fact, when you try to model that on a computer you find that because of the very structure of matter and of the chemical bonds that are the basis of every organism, evolution is not random at all. It will tend to follow certain paths.

Kevin Kelly
I often do crazy siren noises, or, like, a high-pitched dolphin, just to make sure that all my range is there. I make random noise and blurt out random sounds, to make sure I get rid of any bad nerves. I want to make sure to feel as confident as possible.

Ella Henderson
I look a lot busier than I am, as I’m actually a rather sporadic, random person and I’ll play a few gigs and then disappear for a while.

Paul McCartney
For me, all fiction is about prizing the logic of metaphors – which is the logic of narratives in general – over reality, which is irreducibly random and senseless.

Ken Liu
When I started to pick up the bass, it was purely by random chance.

Eberhard Weber
The right numerical balance is not just random number, it is an inherent checking mechanism in our parliamentary democracy against any ruling party that chooses to put its political interests first.

Pritam Singh
The name America has definitely grown on me. I wish there was a big patriotic story behind it, but the truth is that my grandfather was a librarian who knew all sorts of random facts.

America Ferrera
I’m a real magpie when it comes to music; it’s all random, and there’s no pattern to what I like.

Rhys Ifans
Whenever I see a camera, I just want to perform for some reason. If I was getting paid for it or not, I would still be posting random videos of me on the Internet.

Bretman Rock
There’s good random, and there’s bad random. There’s good silly and there’s bad silly, and you’ve gotta know the difference.

Conan O’Brien
You write these songs which are really dear to you about your family or friends, loved ones, and then you get this call, and they say, ‘It’s perfect for two vampires making out in the back of a car.’ It’s some random TV show, and so I say, ‘Oh, yeah, perfect – that’s what I meant it for.’

Mat Kearney
O! many a shaft, at random sent, Finds mark the archer little meant! And many a word, at random spoken, May soothe or wound a heart that’s broken!

Walter Scott
Our time on Earth is so random.

Lisa Ling
I have never accepted any random offers for the sake of being a regular face in the film industry.

Atul Kulkarni
Oh, I sat by Grumpy Cat once. You know that cat everyone is obsessed with? That’s pretty random. She’s not allowed to be touched. Are you kidding? You can’t put a cat next to me and expect me not to touch it.

Chrissy Teigen
No matter where I am, especially when I’m on tour around the country, Caesar salad is my standby. In a random city and eating in random to-go restaurants, you’re kind of scared about trying things, but you can always count on a Caesar salad.

Sasha Cohen
Besides, wouldn’t it be wonderful if no one ever had to worry about the random cruelty of fatal illness or the woes of old age attacking them or their loved ones?

Joan D. Vinge
