My obsessions stay the same – historical memory and historical erasure.

Before I even knew what that half of my family did, I was interested in performing. I remember being seven years old and up on a stage and loving it. I’ve always adored it. Not just acting, but the whole process of writing and directing movies, everything that has to do with that part of life. Maybe it’s in my blood.
I have dark skin. My nickname is El Negro. They call me El Negro in Mexico because even in my country, the dark skin is evidence of Indian blood, a sign that one technically belongs to a third class.

I haven’t watched ‘Mad TV’ a lot, but I have seen some stuff on there that is truly funny. You have to have some sort of attitude toward the subject, and they seem to have it. It depends on how much blood you want to draw.
I’ve always been able to cook Italian food. That’s in my blood because I’m half Sicilian.
The interesting thing about ‘True Blood’ is that its appeal is not contained to teenage girls. I get stopped in the street and questioned by 70-year-old men whose wives and daughters are making Bloody Marys and throwing ‘True Blood’ parties.
People get jaded in every profession, but for some reason, I feel as passionate as when I was 13 years old and just released my first album. I feel the same amount of adrenaline in my blood, and the same amount of curiosity as well. Curiosity about why I’m different.

Herbert Bayard Swope

Mary Tyler Moore

Well, here’s the thing with relationships on ‘True Blood’: Once they happen then you have to throw a monkey-wrench into them, because to have people be happy is not that exciting.
I’m not certain, but I have a little gypsy blood in me. And my mother always told me that her grandma could give someone the evil eye, and I’d better not cross her because she had some of that blood in her. Mother always believed that she could predict the future, and she had dreams that came true.
I don’t think you should ever say, ‘This is the last time’. Music isn’t like that. You’ll be sitting there not wishing to get onto a stage again for maybe two, three, four, five months, or maybe a year, then suddenly you’ll wake up and feel like you’ve got to do it again. It’s in the blood, and I never say never.
There is a great difference between Christianity and religion at the south. If a man goes to the communion table, and pays money into the treasury of the church, no matter if it be the price of blood, he is called religious.
Harriet Ann Jacobs
Usually after a shot, we look for a chair to rest our feet. In ‘Oopiri,’ it was the other way around. After every shot, I was on my feet, walking around the set trying to get the blood circulation in my legs working properly.
Why should I need a prescription to spit into a vial and get my DNA read? Why can’t I get my own blood drawn without a doctor’s permission? It’s my blood.

A tragedy need not have blood and death; it’s enough that it all be filled with that majestic sadness that is the pleasure of tragedy.
One of my motivations to become a blood specialist was to study malaria in red blood cells. But in science, you discover something and you want to go this way, but your work goes that way.
The very notion of Great Britain’s ‘greatness’ is bound up with empire. Euro-scepticism and Little Englander nationalism could hardly survive if people understood whose sugar flowed through English blood and rotted English teeth.

The blood of Christ covers all of our sins, but each of us must do personal business with God in order to experience his forgiveness.
Lewis B. Smedes
My father once said, ‘If you’re in the desert and you’re dying of thirst, are you going to drink a glass of blood or are you going to drink a glass of water?’ I think what he was trying to say, interesting coming from my blood father, is sometimes there are people in your family that can be toxic.
You walk off the plane in Rio, and your blood temperature goes up. The feel of the wind on your face, the water on your skin, the taste of the food, the music, the sexuality; Brazilians are very comfortable in their sexuality.
Myth is an attempt to narrate a whole human experience, of which the purpose is too deep, going too deep in the blood and soul, for mental explanation or description.
D. H. Lawrence
My professional life shouldn’t be an influence on whether I spend time at home. My career is my whole life’s blood. It’s my calling.
Danielle de Niese

You know you’re old if they have discontinued your blood type.
On ‘There Will Be Blood,’ I was cast at the last minute. I had 3 and a half to 4 days to get ready for the first day. I just went for it, threw myself in there and gave it everything I had. That was just guts and instinct, not a lot of preparation.
So why sign your name in blood for more? It seemed like a sensible arrangement for me. I didn’t sell large numbers of records and the record company paid advances they rarely recouped.

In France, successive waves of Gaul, Visigoth, and Frank have swept over the land and have dominated it. But the fair hair and blue eyes and the clear skin of the conquering races have been submerged by the rising and overflow of the dusky blood of the original population.
If you take 12 waters from the coconut – not the ones you buy in the store, although that’s good – but the fresh coconuts, the little brown ones with the three eyes, if you take 12 of those within 24 hours, your blood will go back to the way it was when you were born.
Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionists and rebels – men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, may we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
So-called ‘complex carbs’ may actually represent a more significant threat to health than simple sugar in that they may not only raise blood sugar, but keep it elevated for a more prolonged period of time.
I had a vision – and I saw white spirits and black spirits engaged in battle, and the sun was darkened – the thunder rolled in the Heavens, and blood flowed in streams – and I heard a voice saying, ‘Such is your luck, such are you called to see, and let it come rough or smooth, you must surely bear it.’
I don’t know what the strategy will be in Washington. The reality is, is, I have got to go down there, as my mentor, as people like Bill Bradley have told me to do, get to know your colleagues on both sides of the aisle, recognize that they, too, beat with the same heart and the same type of blood.
Who doesn’t like playing with a railway? I think we’ve all got Thomas the Tank Engine in our blood.

Many people assume the diseases that kill us are pre-programmed into our genes. High blood pressure by 55, heart attacks at 60, maybe cancer at 70, and so on… But for most of the leading causes of death, our genes usually account for only 10-20 per cent of risk.
In the beginning I used to say, ‘I’m healthy, my cholesterol’s fine, I don’t have high blood pressure, I don’t have diabetes.’ By telling people that you see a doctor, and telling people that you’re healthy, it’s perpetuating the abuse against bigger bodies and the mindset that we owe it to people to be healthy.
There’s a thing called the ‘One Drop’ theory in African-American culture, which is if you have one drop of black blood in you, you’re black.
When I was recording music, I’d record all the parts myself, and I wouldn’t let other people in; that’s essentially what Blood Orange is the result of; me trying to find the most comfortable I can be with everything.
Blood is the leitmotif of ‘Black Swan.’
I want to judge the nannies that’s around my child. I don’t want to pay for a nanny that I never met, that I never got a chance to interview. That’s not the life I want for my child. I want to be involved 100 percent in all decisions made. This my flesh and blood.

Avoid fried foods, which angry up the blood.
Christ made the bread the sacrament of his body only: wherefore as the bread is no similitude of his blood, so am I not bound or ought to affirm, that his blood is there present.

They’re not willing to admit that I’ve also shed blood and tears and often paid dearly for my success. This makes me feel extremely sad.

The fact that I am blind is not what defines my life. It should be of no more interest than my blood type. People wonder if there is a relationship between my lack of sight and the way I sing. But there’s no connection.
I’m sure the feeling of fear, as long as you can take advantage of it and not be rendered useless by it, can make you extend yourself beyond what you would regard as your capacity. If you’re afraid, the blood seems to flow freely through the veins, and you really do feel a sense of stimulation.
I honor religion except when it gets into shedding blood.
I think to be in politics you have to have the taste for blood on that.
I was just very interested in the American frontier and the growth of capitalism – those enormous fortunes that were being made, more often than not, on the blood of poor people, black people, Indian people. They were the ones who paid very dearly for those great fortunes.

Since I left the wrestling business and got in the Jim Cornette business, my blood pressure is down considerably.
The way I see it, my blood, sweat, and tears are not just for me; it’s for Fifth Harmony as well. We have been blessed. Most groups have lead singers, but we don’t.
I grew up in the ‘hood around prostitutes, drug dealers, killers, and gangbangers, but I also grew up juxtaposed: On the doorknob outside of our apartment, there was blood from some guy who got shot; but inside, there was National Geographic magazines and encyclopedias and a little library bookshelf situation.
Strokes are categorized as either bleeding into the brain or a blockage in blood supply, known as an ischemic stroke. The latter are overwhelmingly more common, compromising about 87 percent of all stroke events.

I think the scripts for ‘Line of Duty’ and ‘Blood’ are both asking the audience to get involved in speculating as to what is going to happen next, or what should be happening next.

I literally pass out when I see blood.
Just do some kind of workout. Doesn’t matter if it’s going for a walk around the block, going for a jog, doing some calisthenics, lifting weights, going to a pool and swimming – you name it. But do something that gets your blood flowing and gets your mind in the game.
Jesus Christ… came into the world to vindicate the infinite worth of God’s holiness which had been desecrated by our sin and which seemed… to be taken lightly because it was being passed over for nothing more than the blood of bulls.

I accept the Old Testament as more of an action movie: blood, car chases, evacuations, a lot of special effects, seas dividing, mass murder, adultery. The children of God are running amok, wayward. Maybe that’s why they’re so relatable.
Whenever you get to win, you feel the satisfaction of all of your hard work, all the sacrifices, all the blood, sweat and tears. It feels right and makes you realise that you are really doing the right thing.
I think for us as people, when we can help someone with a blood transfusion, when we can help somebody with a monetary donation that can go towards research, to know that you can possibly save a life, it’s huge.
I’m living to the edges of my fingernails, using everything I have. It’s impossible for me to look at things politically or in any way as a project, to further my career. You’re injected directly into the blood of the places in which you’re living and what’s going on there.
Living indoors without fresh air quickly poisons the blood and makes people feel tired and seedy when they don’t know why. For myself, I sleep out of doors in winter as well as summer. I only feel tired or seedy when I have been indoors a lot. I only catch cold when I sleep in a room.
All the soarings of my mind begin in my blood.
Rainer Maria Rilke
Running a start-up is like eating glass. You just start to like the taste of your own blood.
I love new writing, new blood, modern works by unknown writers.
I like porterhouse steak, rib-eyes and New York strip. This works for me because I have very low cholesterol and low blood pressure. It’s not good for everyone; you have to talk to your doctor about that. I also eat fish and cheese. I like clean food prepared as simply as possible.
I’m growing very talented at watching blood and guts on screen because I have zero emotional response.
First off, I could never become a doctor. Blood? Even the fake blood on ‘American Horror Story,’ I’m kind of ready to hurl.
There’s a lot of blood, sweat, and guts between dreams and success.
I was always a bit of a showgirl; it was in my blood. I never thought I would have a career as a singer, though.
Kids take work, effort, love, blood, sweat and tears and are a full time job. You have to commit, for better or worse and then give your all and hope for the best. The one thing you can never, ever do is give up and say, ‘Oooops, never mind, my bad, you can take this one back!’
Love is a sacred reserve of energy; it is like the blood of spiritual evolution.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

I know that I’m very lucky to be alive. For 35 or 40 years I’ve spilt my blood and broke my bones and spent years in hospitals.

Look at the average American diet: ice cream, butter, cheese, whole milk, all this fat. People don’t realize how much of this stuff you get by the end of the day. High blood pressure is from all this high-fat eating.
Poetry proceeds from the totality of man, sense, imagination, intellect, love, desire, instinct, blood and spirit together.
I love ‘True Blood.’ I love ‘The Walking Dead.’ Those are fantastic series.
When you’re doing a film, it’s your film and it’s, you know, your blood and – is in it along with everybody else’s, and it’s the greatest picture ever made when you’re shooting it. It’s only after the critics and then the public say you were wrong that you realize that you were wrong.
Richard D. Zanuck
I always start my campaigns early, and I run hard. Maybe it comes from the rough-and-tumble world of San Francisco politics, where it’s not even a contact sport – it’s a blood sport. This is how I am as a candidate. This is how I run campaigns.
Sometimes it’s fun to be the guy who doesn’t know that he’s bad, like the character I played in ‘True Blood’.
Character, to me, is the life’s blood of fiction.

Hunter S. Thompson
Football’s in my blood – and eventually I want to be the one making decisions.
It is so hard nowadays to find a movie that I like. I don’t mind blood and gore. But I mind when its a slasher film, and its some guy looking for women. I am opposed to that kind of thing. Blood and gore? I love that kind of thing.
Colombian culture has a lot of music – it’s in our blood; it’s in our DNA.
Language is the blood of the soul into which thoughts run and out of which they grow.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
I discovered that there is Indian blood in my ancestry on my father’s side – a fact that had not been talked about in my family. No wonder I’ve often been cast in exotic roles – Indian princesses, Russian revolutionaries, Algerians, Gypsies and Greeks.
While I’m driving, I’ve got speed, gear, lap time, water temperature, blood sugar, RPM, oil pressure. I’ve got car data and body data all together. It’s all on the dash.

Music is my breath, blood and food – without music I would perish; the actor in me would die.
But on average, I go to the gym about four or five times a week. Today, I’m so experienced in training – I’m actually listening to my body now. My body needs freedom. When I train I create serenity and I produce oxygen in my blood. It helps me to think better and relax. By training, you accentuate the problem.
Jean-Claude Van Damme
High blood pressure is a major health crisis in the black community.
For me, I can’t watch violence when it’s too grotesque, and it’s just like, that’s revolting to watch. I don’t enjoy it. But when it’s a Tarantino film, I’m lining up outside the door to see it, and I’m expecting to see something really crazy, a lot of blood, and for it to be funny.
I did not see his face, because he was all covered with blood.
Lizzie Andrew Borden
I love soccer. My father is from Argentina and my mother is from El Salvador. I grew up watching Argentinean soccer. I get really worked up watching soccer. It’s in my blood.
J. D. Pardo
My father’s family can be traced back to 1400. I’ve been told by gypsies that there is unmistakeably gypsy blood in me. Lee is a gypsy name, you know.
I just tend to do things to myself that I don’t realize I’m doing. Sometimes I bite my lip so that it splits and hurts, and yet I can’t stop. And sometimes I’d play shows on the last run, I’d scratch my neck while I was singing, and I’d horrified to see these red streaks of blood after.
I feel like a foster kid that’s been in the system for a long time, and then at 16, somebody adopted them and said, ‘You can go to college, and you ain’t got to pay no student loans.’ I feel happy. I feel accepted after all these years of blood, sweat, and tears.
I get a blood test every six months to narrow down what could be causing fatigue, exhaustion, dark thoughts, and obviously, eventually, how to be in my top shape. Blood doesn’t lie. From vitamins that I’m lacking to natural foods, it’s an educated guide to connect my physical internal and external look.
Like a lot of people, I love a bit of blood and gore.

The great questions of the day will not be settled by means of speeches and majority decisions but by iron and blood.
Otto von Bismarck
Your pantry is your first line of defense against food-borne illness and things like high blood pressure and cholesterol.
Already from your own cells scientists can grow skin, cartilage, noses, blood vessels, bladders and windpipes. In the future, scientists will grow more complex organs, like livers and kidneys. The phrase ‘organ failure’ will disappear.
A lot of modern horror can leave me cold, and I’m not good with blood and gore and all that stuff. It’s not fun for me. There’s nothing entertaining about watching a film like that.

I am an optimist because I want to change things for the better and I know that blood has to be spilled and disharmony and cruelty are necessary to do that.
It’s not just songs and glamour. It’s sweat, blood, broken toes, and mistakes… It’s life.
Mary J. Blige
It just didn’t seem to fit the story and lineage, I guess. So I just sort of surrounded ‘Blood Bank’ with three other songs that were very different from one other, and they all kind of came together as a palette cleanser for the last record. And I’m really excited about it.
Blood will tell, but often it tells too much.
I try to keep things as varied as possible in my career, and after playing something as fun and over the top as Maryann on ‘True Blood,’ I wanted to find something antithetical to that.
I am going to be on ‘True Blood.’ It was really exciting. I had a great time shooting it. I spent the last nine months shooting this season and it was very secretive, very sexy, a lot of blood and fangs.
It is women who bear the race in bloody agony. Suffering is a kind of horror. Blood is a kind of horror. Women are born with horror in their very bloodstream. It is a biological thing.
Life is not perfect. I’ve had my share of sweat, blood and pain.
One of the jobs I had was cutting out the blood clots on a side of beef.
I had a very big crush on Errol Flynn during ‘Captain Blood.’ I thought he was absolutely smashing for three solid years, but he never guessed. Then he had one on me but nothing came of it. I’m not going to regret that; it could have ruined my life.
Olivia De Havilland
I’m very aware of my own background. I’m Irish, French, and then a little bit of everything else thrown in, ranging from German to Native American. We’re talking about tiny drops of blood.
I have Algerian, Turkish, Swedish, Spanish blood: I feel like a citizen of the world. Life and cinema don’t have borders.
When I started ‘First Blood,’ back in 1968, I was deeply influenced by Geoffrey Household’s ‘Rogue Male.’
My life and the life of my family has to do with exploration, with adventure. My grandfather was the first man in the stratosphere, and my father was the first to touch the deepest point in the ocean… For me, adventure and exploration is something in the blood.
We can’t understand when we’re pregnant, or when our siblings are expecting, how profound it is to have a shared history with a younger generation: blood, genes, humor. It means we were actually here, on Earth, for a time – like the Egyptians with their pyramids, only with children.
In 1984, my mom gave birth to my older sister, Teresa. Due to a complicated delivery, she needed a blood transfusion, and at that moment, my mom had HIV+ blood put into her body.
I was born and brought up in South Mumbai. My father, Jagdeep, is a businessman and a Sindhi. My mother is half Brit and half Muslim. I am thus a cocktail of mixed blood. From the time I remember, I wanted to be an actress.
I live close to Hampstead Heath, so when I do have spare time, I like to raise my white blood cell count with a swim in the men’s pond. It’s an ambition of mine to swim in the ponds on every day of the year.

You’ll see a lot more blood in ‘Saw’ movies or something like that than you will in either of the ‘Last House’ movies. I kind of think it owes more to ‘The Virgin Spring’ which is the original source material, the Bergman movie.
I was made a sinner by deriving my being from Adam; I am made just by being washed in the blood of Christ and not by Christ’s ‘words and example.’
Flesh-meats will depreciate the blood. Cook meat with spices, and eat it with rich cakes and pies, and you have a bad quality of blood.
Ellen G. White
I would love it if people could look at chubby folks with all of our curves, bumps and ridges and just say ‘She’s beautiful’ just like that. You don’t have to get on a treadmill as long as your blood pressure is under control and you eat healthy, God bless.
Yvette Nicole Brown
I never tried to use anything besides my own sweat and blood and talent to get somewhere.

As you age, your blood pressure tends to get higher.
I am interested in the way that we look at a given landscape and take possession of it in our blood and brain. None of us lives apart from the land entirely; such an isolation is unimaginable.

I am, of course, directly descended from Brian Boru, the last king of Ireland, a fact certified by my mother and therefore beyond dispute.
