August Quotes:

Technology is transforming how we hold ourselves, contorting our bodies into what the New Zealand physiotherapist Steve August calls the ‘iHunch.’ I’ve also heard people call it ‘text neck,’ and in my work, I sometimes refer to it as ‘iPosture.’

Amy Cuddy

When I first started shooting ‘Sharpe,’ back in the early 1990s, I’d kiss my two elder daughters goodbye at the end of August – Evie wasn’t even born then – and I wouldn’t see them again until Christmas. That was tough. They were hard times.

Sean Bean

The owners said that they wanted the salary cap and refused to promise that they would abide by the rules of the just-expired contract after the season ended. Believing we had no choice, the players went on strike in August of 1994.

David Cone

In August 1961, I visited President Kennedy at Hyannis Port. The Berlin Wall was going up, and he was about to begin a huge military buildup – reluctantly, or so he said, as he puffed on a cigar liberated by a friend from Castro’s Cuba.

Gore Vidal

In August 1945, a former Army pilot with an artificial leg pitched five and a third innings for Washington against Boston. This would turn out to be Bert Shepard’s only major league game, and it remains one of the heartwarming moments in baseball history.

George Vecsey

My favourite Nice restaurant is in the market. It’s open mainly for the market people, and shuts in August.

Mary Quant

African-Americans are always forced to learn the other culture, but the other culture is not forced to learn ours. I went to acting school at Juilliard, and we learned Shakespeare and Shaw, but we never did the work of a single African-American playwright, not August Wilson or Ntozake Shange or Imir Baraka.

Tom Felton

It was the 31st of August in 1962 that eighteen of us traveled twenty-six miles to the county courthouse in Indianola to try to register to become first-class citizens. We was met in Indianola by policemen, Highway Patrolmen, and they only allowed two of us in to take the literacy test at the time.

Fannie Lou Hamer

‘Power’ came in August. February 2014, ‘Empire’ ended. That whole time, I was like, ‘You know what, let me just take a break from this and focus on music’ so in that time period, I did my whole EP. Got the single ‘Lotto.’

Rotimi

I kept having the producers of ‘Fog in August’ take out some of the Nazi terms and phrases. I don’t want audiences to look at this doctor and say, ‘He is a Nazi monster’ and think that it has nothing to do with our lives today.

Sebastian Koch

Today is the first of August. It is hot, steamy and wet. It is raining. I am tempted to write a poem. But I remember what it said on one rejection slip: ‘After a heavy rainfall, poems titled ‘Rain’ pour in from across the nation.’

Sylvia Plath

That smell of freshly cut grass makes me think of Friday night football in high school. The smell of popcorn and cigar smoke reminds me of the stadium. The cutting of the grass reminds me of the August practice.

Garth Brooks

Remember to be gentle with yourself and others. We are all children of chance and none can say why some fields will blossom while others lay brown beneath the August sun.

Chadwick Boseman

In New York, FEMA granted the Mamaroneck Beach & Yacht Club’s request to be remapped from the high-risk flood zone in August 2012 – just two months before the club was damaged and its outbuildings destroyed by Hurricane Sandy, which stacked up yachts at its docks like pick-up sticks.

Bill Dedman

In August of 2002, I survived a car accident. Although I can still see the van speeding toward us, I cannot bring to mind the crash itself – only its aftermath.

Siri Hustvedt

We opened the first Men’s Wearhouse in Houston in August 1973, then a store a year for 10 years in Texas. In the early 1980s I opened a store in the San Francisco Bay Area. Within the year, the Texas economy was in total disarray. We were facing Chapter 11, and if not for the California store, we might not have survived.

George Zimmer

Every year I go to Denver, usually between June and August. I hire a car and head up to the Rocky Mountain National Park, about a three-hour drive. It’s my idea of heaven on earth and just talking about it puts me in a good mood.

Gavin Esler

I think we will have a boy baby and he will be born on the 20th of August. Everyone else has a girl baby and at times I don’t believe I should mind having a little Phyllis Dawn but Dearest wants a boy and I do.

Dawn Powell

August used to be a sad month for me. As the days went on, the thought of school starting weighed heavily upon my young frame. That, coupled with the oppressive heat and humidity of my native Washington, D.C., only seemed to heighten the misery.

Henry Rollins

I was born in August, no July, 1908.

SATCHEL PAIGE

August is the month of the high-sailing hawks. The hen hawk is the most noticeable. He likes the haze and calm of these long, warm days. He is a bird of leisure and seems always at his ease. How beautiful and majestic are his movements!

John Burroughs

Nowadays, it is no longer possible to maintain that the Nazi-Soviet pact of 23 August 1939 was a fiction invented by bourgeois-imperialist enemies. Everyone has seen the film clips of Herr Ribbentrop landing in Moscow, and of Stalin smiling broadly as Ribbentrop and Molotov signed up side by side.

Gordon Lightfoot

Prayer is an august avowal of ignorance.

Victor Hugo

Yeah, early ’71 is when I got my record contract. I had a record come out by August of ’71. Things happened really fast.

John Prine

We used to play football on the levee, with no shirts on in the summer – August in New Orleans – and my skin would turn red. They’d call me Redskin, Red Apache, then it turned around to Apache Red.

Aaron Neville

I arranged ‘DT Suga,’ which I previously used in lyrics, backwards. ‘DT’ is D Town and refers to my hometown. I like the meaning, and it sounds cool when I say it, so I think I’ll continue using this name when I work externally. I also like how the mixtape came out in August.

Suga

I never admit to wishing I’d written something by another author, but if my name mysteriously appeared on the title page of ‘The Guns of August,’ I wouldn’t complain.

H. W. Brands

For eight months, from January to August of 2007, I filmed with Anna Wintour and her team at ‘Vogue’ as they created the September 2007 issue of the magazine.

R. J. CUTLER

Both the Beatles and The Rolling Stones broke on the music scene the summer I was in England. I can vividly remember hearing ‘She Loves You’ in August 1963.

Gordon Lightfoot

My first app was released in July or August of 2008. It was a ‘fingermill’ – a treadmill for your fingers. My level of programming was quite basic to begin with, so it was more gimmicky to start with. Day one it was up there, I had 79 pounds worth of revenue.

Nick D’Aloisio

When I think of Xabi, my mind goes back to the first training session he had at Melwood in August 2004. And the same word always leaps out: wow! Rafa Benitez had talked him up before he arrived and immediately you understood.

Jamie Carragher

In August 2008, I moved with the man who would become my husband from Boston to a cabin in rural North Carolina.

Laura van den Berg

I miss the archipelago, the islands outside of Stockholm, the most. That’s where I spent my summers as a kid. Going on a boat and island-hopping. In August, we have a crayfish party.

Elsa Hosk

What happens is that every August photographers camp out in Hyannis Port. So anytime I go down to the beach, or go to the pier or whatever, there’s no avoiding them.

John F. Kennedy Jr.

August brings into sharp focus and a furious boil everything I’ve been listening to in the late spring and summer.

HENRY ROLLINS

I don’t have to get up in the morning and go beat up my body like I used to. I don’t have to be out there in August in 108 degree weather down in Texas.

Emmitt Smith

August, the summer’s last messenger of misery, is a hollow actor.

Henry Rollins

American naturalism is what my indulgent actor side loves: a bit of Tennessee Williams, a bit of Clifford Odets, August Wilson – I would just love to tackle some of that.

Emilia Clarke

The PGA Championship, last of the majors each year, might well be accustomed to having fun poked at it by the print press for being mired in August, but this isn’t fair.

Dan Jenkins

Mustard saw my Instagram probably, like, August of 2015. He just reached out to me by DM on Instagram.

Ella Mai

I was very upset in August of 2012 when President Obama declared a red line against Syria and said if these chemical attacks continue, that’s it, we’re done, we’re getting involved and we did nothing. When you’re the commander in chief, the buck stops with you.

Jedediah Bila

My career highs were definitely in 1983 and 1984, because Kajagoogoo’s ‘Too Shy,’ which I co-wrote, went to number one in many countries and was top five in America. However, the band fired me in August 1983, so I was suddenly on my own as Limahl.

Limahl

I’ve been sober for two-and-a-half years, My children are happy. In August, my wife and I will celebrate our fifteenth wedding anniversary. My band is back together with a sold-out tour.

Trey Anastasio

I grew up when one of America’s greatest black playwrights, August Wilson, was writing about life in Pittsburgh, but I never saw myself in any of his straight-male plays. And then I see ‘Angels,’ which was so honest and painful, and it had this black drag queen in it, Belize, with a big heart. I finally had a character to relate to.

Billy Porter

I was born in Cochin August 27, 1980. Since my father is in the Navy, he was often transferred to other cities. When I was nine years old, we moved on to New Delhi.

Neha Dhupia

When I first arrived, I likened Congress to being back in school again as a freshman. Well, just like school, we have an ‘August recess,’ but don’t let the name fool you – it’s not even close to a vacation.

Jared Polis

August Wilson is the one writer that writes about men like my father, who had a fifth grade education, who was a janitor at McDonald’s.

Could you let me have the 3 weeks due to me now and if I work again before August I must of course repay you at the rate of exchange you let me have it at now if you kindly will.

Basil Rathbone

I love the little garden in the back of my family’s brownstone in Brooklyn. Digging out there in the dirt is a joy for me, although by the time August rolls around and my roses have black spot, I need the break winter provides.

Siri Hustvedt

We have to stop thinking about diversity and start thinking about inclusion. That’s what you can take from August Wilson. That there are whole cultures out there living experiences exactly like yours, and their stories can be just as dynamic, sold in the foreign market, put as many butts in the seats as any Caucasian movie out there.

Viola Davis

The difference between mediocre, good and great is you’re able to have the enthusiasm for prep, to work to prepare to win the same in January that you do in August, when everybody says they’re excited.

Brad Stevens

I was in Vienna in August 1968 for a meeting of the International Federation of Multiple Sclerosis Societies, of which I was co-founder, and we wanted a 20th country to join. They asked for a volunteer to go to Prague to get Czechoslovakia to do it, and my hand always goes up first.

John Mackey

It must be the PGA Championship if it’s August and you can sit down and talk to the heat or reach inside your shirt, where it’s 110 degrees, and grab handfuls of humidity.

Dan Jenkins
