We have collected the best Jacques Quotes by famous authors including Alexandre Desplat, Walid Jumblatt, Norman McLaren, Laurent Fabius, Karl Lagerfeld and many others, we hope that among them you will find the right thought.
I’ve scored all the movies that Jacques Audiard has directed. It’s a long love story between us, trying to find a voice that would belong to his films only.
I condemn what happened in Madrid, but it is suspicious. If tomorrow there will be another bombing, in France for example, who will gain power? Of course not Jacques Chirac, but Le Pen.
Take a film of Jacques Tati like Mon Oncle which has something quite new – for me, unique – in it.
This assumes an upward revision of the European Budget, which is precisely what Jacques Chirac refuses to do. On the contrary, he has demanded a reduction.
I’m a total puritan, but I found Jacques’ adventures amusing. We couldn’t be further apart. I am a Calvinist toward myself and totally indulgent toward others.
It was Jacques Chirac and Schroeder both, who pushed us into a conflict to remove Milosevic.
I became fascinated by the then-blossoming science of molecular biology when, in my senior year, I happened to read the papers by Francois Jacob and Jacques Monod on the operon theory.
Right from the start of my career I was surrounded by people like Jacques Kallis, Mark Boucher and Graeme Smith, who gave 100 percent in every performance.
I do like musical films more than big Hollywood films, especially those by Jacques Demi and Vincent Minelli.
People look up to Jacques Mesrine as if he were a Robin Hood, stealing from the rich, but he never gave anything back to anybody.
I wear a lot of wigs as Jacques Mesrine. He’d wear multiple wigs and take them off one at a time to rob three banks in one hour.
I can’t summarize my favorite movie, Jacques Tati’s ‘Play Time.’ You just have to see it.
I was into Jacques Cousteau as a kid and started scuba-diving around 14, which blew my mind. It was all colour, another world.
I hooked up with director Jacques Audiard for this film called ‘Rust & Bone’ with Marion Cotillard. I loved that experience so much I’m truly sad that it’s over!
When I was a kid, Jacques Cousteau was my hero and the person who inspired me to become an underwater explorer. I have many other people who inspired me after him, but he is still my all-time hero.
Jacques Audiard has always been an outlier in a French film industry that is starkly bifurcated between high and low.

I’m quite a confident person in many ways, but there’s only so much you can hear about being compared to Hattie Jacques. For the record, she was a comedy goddess, but she was 25 stone. I hope I’m right in saying I’m not in any way nearly 25 stone.
I was reading a lot of Jacques Derrida at the time, writing ‘Beth.’ He actually talked about zombies.
The Jacques Cousteau shows actually got me very excited about the fact that there’s an alien world here on Earth.
We’re probably close to reaching 2,000 shows, which is more than Julia Child and Jacques Pepin together.
If I were living in France, I’d vote for Jacques Chirac, despite the fact that he can’t seem to keep his hands out of the cash till.
I want to be Jacques Pepin. I want to have a nice 50-, 60-year career. I want to be on PBS when I’m 70-something, still kicking it, having a great time, showing up in Aspen to sign cookbooks. I just want to have a nice, big, long career.
Jacques Cousteau was my hero.
When I bowled to batters like Michael Vaughan or Jacques Kallis who were classical, technically perfect, sound batters, I always found that I could get them out.
I don’t really listen to Jacques Villeneuve anymore.
No matter how many great things you say about Jacques Pepin, there’s always more. Through his books and videos, he taught me the importance of technique in the kitchen, but, more significantly, he showed me what it means to be a great teacher and educator.

It’s funny, I started by making fake American movies, ‘The Transporter’ and stuff like that. I was shooting in France, but everything was in English. But then afterwards, I was looking at real French movies like the Jacques Audiard movies.
I used to listen to my music on the bus. It was one of my favourite things, to look out the window and over at the Jacques Cartier Bridge and Parc Jean-Drapeau.
I think my best work has been in France with great men. It’s been my great fortune to work with really great men – with Olivier Assayas, Raoul Ruiz, Jacques Rivette. I am tutored by them.
I feel that if Jacques Pepin shows you how to make an omelet, the matter is pretty much settled. That’s God talking.
I would also point out that many governments that chose not to support this war – certainly, the French president, Jacques Chirac, as I recall in April of last year, referred to Iraq’s possession of WMD.
My art teacher was really encouraging me, because he really liked that I could draw. I felt very torn. At that time, I had to pick one, and I felt much more confident in the arts than I did in chemistry. My big thing was that I actually wanted to be like Jacques Cousteau.
I taped my first series for PBS in 1982 at WJCT-TV in Jacksonville, Florida. The show, called ‘Everyday Cooking with Jacques Pepin,’ was about saving time and money in the kitchen – and it was a celebration of simple and unpretentious food.
Of the people who cook on television, I have admired people like Jacques Pepin, Julia Child, Mario Batali, Jamie Oliver and a few others because they are free of drama, display good taste and masterful technique, and use clear exposition to bring you up to speed.
I was 14. I went to see a production of ‘Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris,’ and when they got to that final song, ‘If We Only Have Love,’ it was like the top of my head had blown off.
