Dwarf Quotes:

The force of the advertising word and image dwarfs the power of other literature in the 20th century.

Daniel J. Boorstin

‘Imposter Syndrome’ is the feeling of wearing a mask and playing a role that one does not feel at home in. It is when you feel like you or your work is a fluke and that you’re a dwarf amongst giants. Many of us have this, especially when we’re in some sort of creative industry.

Luvvie Ajayi

The more the technocrats programme it down to the smallest detail, the more the powerful manipulate it, football continues to be the art of the unforeseeable. When you least expect it, the impossible occurs: the dwarf teaches the giant a lesson, and a scraggy, bow-legged black man makes an athlete sculpted in Greece look ridiculous.

Eduardo Galeano

The plants which stand next to dwarf trees in importance with the Chinese are certainly chrysanthemums, which they manage extremely well, perhaps better than they do any other plant.

Robert Fortune

A dwarf who brings a standard along with him to measure his own size, take my word, is a dwarf in more articles than one.

Laurence Sterne

What’s amazing is that I’m recognized all over the world through ‘Red Dwarf.’ British fans are exceptional, but the American fans are something else. Some of them fly 500 miles to stand in line for three hours, just to meet me, then when they do they collapse. It makes you feel like a rock star!

Craig Charles

I have a friend who says, ‘The world doesn’t need another angry dwarf!’

Peter Dinklage

There was never any career plan. When ‘Red Dwarf’ started I thought we were doing a curious little sitcom on BBC2, I didn’t think I was becoming an actor. I didn’t see that 21 years later I’d still be talking about it, let alone filming a new one. For me everything’s always been an accident.

Craig Charles

I loved ‘Dungeons & Dragons.’ Actually, not so much the actual playing as the creation of characters and the opportunity to roll twenty-sided dice. I loved those pouches of dice Dungeon Masters would trundle around, loved choosing what I was going to be: warrior, wizard, dwarf, thief.

Michael Ian Black

My father was the doyen of the divorce barristers. He was an extremely erudite and very famous divorce barrister. So that, when I was a little boy in the nursery, instead of a story like ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,’ I used to get ‘The Duchess and the Seven Correspondents.’

John Mortimer

Tolkien made dwarf sign language because, you know, it’s too loud to talk in the mines.

Richard C. Armitage

I saw ‘Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs’ when it came out, didn’t like it too much. I found she was stupid.

Agnes Varda

Today, if you have an Internet connection, you have at your fingertips an amount of information previously available only to those with access to the world’s greatest libraries – indeed, in most respects what is available through the Internet dwarfs those libraries, and it is incomparably easier to find what you need.

Peter Singer

If each of us hires people who are smaller than we are, we shall become a company of dwarfs. But if each of us hires people who are bigger than we are, we shall become a company of giants.

David Ogilvy

I don’t like people being cautious and tentative and choosing their words carefully around me because I’m a dwarf.

Peter Dinklage

The entire elementary school in Rotan, Texas, presented a theatrical production of ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.’ And the part of Sneezy fell to me.

Tommy Lee Jones

The U.S. – E.U. economic relationship dwarfs America’s economic ties with China.

John Bruton

I have a friend – not a dwarf – who’s an alchemist of sorts. He concocted a men’s cologne… He gave me a bottle as a gift. I was thinking we should totally put this on the market. You know how Jessica Simpson and Beyonce have signature perfumes and make a mint? I’m thinking this cologne could be my ticket to fortune.

Peter Dinklage

Friends don’t care about issues like dwarf tossing.

Peter Dinklage

I am not a dwarf.

Jean-Claude Juncker

Tariq Ali

The mechanic could lift up the bonnet of the car and show me four dwarves strapped to a pair of tandems and tell me that the motor was actually dwarf-powered and that one of the little fellows had to be replaced, and I’d just be numbly writing out a cheque and scribbling ‘new dwarf – car’ on the stub.

John Niven

Whether you’re a dwarf, whether you’re a midget, it’s all branding.

Deep Roy

This little hobbit saves the world. The wizard kills the dragon and saves the town. So many people connect to that character; it doesn’t matter if it’s an elf or a hobbit or a dwarf. It doesn’t matter. They’re human in their heart and soul.

R. A. Salvatore

A lot of parts written for people of my size, dwarfs, are either foolish idiots or, like, these sages that are all-knowing, and they’re very, sort of, come-to-them-for-answers.

Peter Dinklage

Bigotry dwarfs the soul by shutting out the truth.

Edwin Hubbel Chapin

I think when average-size people start taking roles that were meant for dwarfs, that’s a little frustrating because there aren’t that many roles out there for height-challenged actors.

Verne Troyer

I am technically not a midget. I’m a dwarf, or a little person, but I consider myself a midget. I just don’t care enough to, I’m not going to waste anger on the word midget.

Hornswoggle

For a nation, the choices that determine whether income doubles in one generation or two dwarf all other economic policy concerns.

Paul Romer

The bronze dwarfs give you the first clue that Wroclaw is no ordinary city. They lurk all over the place, carousing outside pubs, snoring at the doors of hotels, peeking out from behind the bars of the old city jail.

David Hewson

Apparently, there’s a little red demon dwarf that haunts the city, and before every major bad thing that’s happened, it’s appeared to somebody. Last time, he appeared in a Cadillac.

Meg White

The words ‘fairy tales’ must accordingly be taken to include tales in which occurs something ‘fairy,’ something extraordinary – fairies, giants, dwarfs, speaking animals.

Joseph Jacobs

They don’t always use dwarfs, unfortunately. They shouldn’t be allowed to do that! How dare they do ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ and not have dwarfs!

Kenny Baker

There just aren’t many little guys who are good actors. They don’t get the training; they don’t go to RADA. There just aren’t the parts for dwarfs, and if you like it or not, you’re typecast as a dwarf.

Kenny Baker

I’m playing an Amazon warrior princess in a new radio comedy series called ‘Elvenquest,’ and I’m playing a Russian genius in the comeback of ‘Red Dwarf.’

Sophie Winkleman

I was taught to do math and read at the same time. So you’re six years old, you’re reading ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ and it becomes rapidly obvious that there are only two kinds of men in the world: dwarves and Prince Charmings. And the odds are seven is to one against your finding the prince. That’s why little girls don’t do math.

Emily Levine

As actors, we have a philosophy, which is this: great fun. That has transmitted itself into the dwarf philosophy of life. We’re up for a brawl, we’re up for a bloody good feed, and if you’ve got food, well, we share what we’ve got, and so should you.

John Callen

A dwarf standing on the shoulders of a giant may see farther than a giant himself.

Robert Burton

How can an adjective in front of a noun not describe the noun? There are dwarf stars, but they’re still considered stars.

Alan Stern

One thing I hate in ethnic comedy is giving the audience the opportunity to laugh in a racist way at a thing. A lot of times dwarf comedians will do that, Arab comics, and gay comics will do it; everyone is laughing, but they’re not laughing at the joke, they’re laughing at this crazy character.

Ari Shaffir

There’s very few comedy sci-fis that have worked for me other than the classics, like ‘Red Dwarf’ and, of course, ‘Hitchhiker’s Guide.’

David Hewlett

Just because Pluto orbits with many other dwarf planets doesn’t change what it is, just as whether an object is a mountain or not doesn’t depend on whether it’s in a group or in isolation.

Alan Stern

I’m the one who originally coined the term ‘dwarf planet,’ back in the nineteen-nineties.

Alan Stern

Where talent is a dwarf, self-esteem is a giant.

John Petit-Senn

I started a novel back in high school. It wasn’t very good. It was the opposite of good. The writing itself wasn’t too bad, and the characters were interesting. But the story was a mess, and it was full of fantasy cliches. Dwarf with an axe. Barbarian warrior. I don’t ever think I’d bother finishing that. It’s just not worth my time.

Patrick Rothfuss

We really just didn’t realize the diversity of planetary types in our solar system. Pluto looked like a misfit because it was the only one we saw. And just as a Chihuahua is still a dog, these ice dwarfs are still planetary bodies. They’re large enough to make themselves round by self gravity, and they surely pass the test of planethood.

Alan Stern

How many mothers have emerged from a family trip to a Disney movie and been obliged to explain the facts of death to their sobbing young? A conservative estimate: the tens of millions, since the studio’s first animated feature, ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ premiered in 1937.

Richard Corliss

I remember seeing re-releases of ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ and ‘Bambi’ in the theater very young. They had huge impacts on me, particularly the dark aspects.

Robert Eggers

Ever since I’ve jumped in a Legends or Dwarf car, I’ve always tried to win. I’ve been able to win in every race car I’ve ever driven.

Kyle Busch

My idea is to play with the people who you know want to get it right. Then it’s fun and easy to record, and you can get down to details, like taking out cymbals so the verse doesn’t dwarf the chorus, something like that.

Ben Folds

I kind of figured if I couldn’t get a job as a dwarf, looking as I do, I should just give up acting.

Stephen Hunter

Discovering that our solar system has many more planets than we ever expected, and that most of them are ice dwarfs rather than like Earth and the other rocky terrestrials, is just another step in the revolution in viewpoint that removed the Earth from the center of the physical universe and makes Earth all the more special.

Alan Stern
