10 QUOTES WITH «GO IN FOR»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word go in for.
1
Sandrine Bonnaire
Our family makes us who we are, defines us totally. When you go to a therapist or have analysis, whatever reason you go in for, they will always bring you back to your family. We're strong or weak according to what family we have. You might have left them long ago, might not even talk to them, but something lingers; we have no choice.
2
Daniel Bruhl
I'm always nervous doing auditions - to be honest, I hate it. I always envy the actors who are so cool and cold-blooded when they go in for an audition, especially if it's for a part that you would really love to play.
3
Dana Brunetti
When you go in for any life rights, you always ask, 'Who would you have play this person, or who would you have direct?'
4
Eliza Coupe
I wish I knew that when I go in for an audition and I don't get the part, it actually doesn't have to do with me on a personal level.
5
Charles Edison
I have no desire to go in for tyranny or to play the part of King Charles. I hate tyranny in any field of human activity.
6
Paul Goldberger
I don't usually go in for reviews of buildings that aren't yet built, since you can tell only so much from drawings and plans, and, besides, has there ever been a building that didn't look great as a model?
7
Gattlin Griffith
I used to go in for Disney auditions, and they'd tell me, 'You're cute and nice but just not funny.'
8
Willie Mays
I was very blessed with a good body. Never got hurt. Never was in the hospital. The only time I was in the hospital was when I would get exhausted a little bit, and go in for a check-up or something.
9
Robert De Niro
I always tell actors when they go in for an audition: Don't be afraid to do what your instincts tell you. You may not get the part, but people will take notice.
10
Adrianne Palicki
With all the care that women do and all the money we spend to maintain our hair, men can at least take the time to wash their face with a simple inexpensive product that will soften their facial hair so they're not hurting us when we go in for a kiss. Trust me, guys, women will want to kiss you more if you take care of your facial hair.
