William Quotes by Nicolas Cage, Bruce Dickinson, Kate Middleton, Dick Cavett, Patti Smith, Prince William and many others.

I wish my friends at William Morris Endeavor all the best.
William Shatner has one style. We have completely contrasting personalities. We’re very good friends. I adore him, but we’re very different people, so they were smart enough to write characters that reflected that.

I got to know the cast pretty well. Not so much Leonard Nimoy, I got to know William Shatner pretty well. They are a pretty good gang. The production company that made ‘Star Trek‘ is the kind of production company that likes to have fun.
Don’t feel embarrassed if you’ve never heard of William Lane Craig. He parades himself as a philosopher, but none of the professors of philosophy whom I consulted had heard his name, either.
Living and working for four decades in a Bologna apartment and studio he shared with his unwed sisters, Morandi painted little but bottles, boxes, jars, and vases. Yet like that of Chardin and the underappreciated William Nicholson, Morandi’s work seems to slow down time and show you things you’ve never seen before.
As a public servant, William H. Webster has an impeccable resume.

William Kittredge’s ‘Hole in the Sky‘ is one of my favorite books. Ian Frazier’s ‘Family’ I adore.
OK, I have a nickname. My family calls me ‘Trey’ because I’m William the third. My dad has the same name, which is always confusing because my dad is well known, and I’m also known.
William McKinley Oswald was my high school football coach. He was a great coach and had a profound influence on my life. But I think he could have learned his method of motivating players from an army drill sergeant.
I’ve done a lot of Shakespeare onstage, and I’m not convinced that the Earl of Oxford was the author of all those works, but I am convinced that the Stratfordian William Shakespeare was not. My feeling is that it was an amalgamation of many writers, in the same way that most films are a collaborative endeavor.
Harnessing steam power required many innovations, as William Rosen chronicles in the book ‘The Most Powerful Idea in the World.’
When economist William Beveridge dreamed up the postwar welfare state he wanted to fight five ‘giant evils‘ – want, disease, ignorance, squalor and idleness.

I’m not Gore Vidal or William Buckley.

Poetry itself is music. I’m just lucky that I can convert it into music. William Blake is my favorite poet of all time, and he said that he wasn’t quite familiar with the sounds of music. If so, he would have been a musician. All of his poems are all like songs, and that’s how I always try to start my thoughts.
William Regal has been the most influential person in my entire career.
The major poets of New Jersey have all suffered, whether it’s Whitman, who lost his job for ‘Leaves of Grass,’ or William Carlos Williams, who was called a communist, or Ginsberg, whose ‘Howl‘ was prosecuted, or myself. If you practise poetry the way I think it needs to be done, you’re going to put yourself in jeopardy.
But guys such as Allen and William are more supportive than most men.
The great thing that I appreciate – the fact that my godfather, William ‘Sticky‘ Jackson, was a Tuskegee Airman because my father was first born in Ozark, Alabama. The sacrifices and the commitment of those men made it possible for myself and many others.
The people I believed in were people like William Lever, the great philanthropic industrialist – self-made men who realised anyone could achieve.

When I was starting to write, the great influence was T.S. Eliot and after that William Butler Yeats.
American populism is no stranger to our political life. From the earliest anti-Federalists to William Jennings Bryan, Huey Long, and George Wallace, and many in between, we’ve sampled the populist temptation, often in times of national distress and dislocation.
The contribution of Anthony William Greig to English cricket has been underestimated because of his allegiance to Kerry Packer and his choice to recruit players for World Series Cricket while still the England captain. His critics hold that as a black mark against him, which rules out anything else he may have done.
Yes, William E. Dodd was the – became the – America’s first ambassador to Nazi Germany. Prior to that, he was a professor of history at the University of Chicago – mild-mannered guy.
I was born in Swansea in the Principality of Wales in September 1934 and named Clive William John Granger. The ‘William John’ names were traditional Granger boy’s names, and my mother liked the name Clive because some popular musician at the time had it.

I always like Iain Banks science fiction stuff and William Gibson’s cyberpunk stuff from the 1980s.
Even if I hadn’t been cast as Doctor Who, my acting would probably have been influenced by William Hartnell or Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, and all of the other guys. Because those were the actors that I really watched every moment of, as opposed to Laurence Olivier.
My name is William Shatner, and I am Canadian!

William Hartnell was one of the finest character actors of our time, and as a fan, I want to make sure that I do him justice.
When I was twelve, I started reading Eudora Welty, Thomas Wolfe, Flannery O’Connor, James Agee, and – do we dare breathe the name – William Faulkner.

I found out that superstars Winkler and William Shatner are real people, and I was so thankful for that.
In any long string of letters, one can find countless anomalies that will seem like convincing proofs of hidden meaning to the mind that wants to believe that the text is somehow special. Numerological tricks, for example, can demonstrate that William Shakespeare wrote the ‘King James Bible.’
My family always comes first. My world revolves around my husband, Peter, our daughter, Victoria, and our son, William, but not necessarily in that order. Then, it’s this fascinating world of publishing that devours most of my days and many nights.
I subscribe to William Faulkner’s’ view that history is not just about what we were before but who we are now.
My son William is only nine but he’s had four public schools so far, one in Cornwall, one when I was at Sheffield, one in Beckenham when I was at Palace.

The truth is, I love history and studied it in college, with a particular focus on early American history. My love is so deep, in fact, I went to school at The College of William & Mary in Colonial Williamsburg.
For Prince William, I focused more on doing a bad impression of a romantic lead than on Prince William himself.
