10 QUOTES WITH «HUNGARIAN»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word Hungarian.
1
Jonas Armstrong
I was proud of 'Robin Hood,' even though critics wrote negative things. But I had to laugh when this big, shaven-headed Hungarian stunt guy first saw me. He said, 'You Jonas? You playing Robin Hood? You need to go to the gym today.' So I thought, 'I'm going to show people.'
2
Joseph Brodsky
This is the generation whose first cry of life was the Hungarian uprising.
3
Robert Capa
It's not enough to have talent, you also have to be Hungarian.
4
Carmen Dell'Orefice
Fashion is more about taste than money - you have to understand your body and tailor clothes to your needs; it's all about the fit. I do the alterations myself - I'm quite a seamstress - it's the influence of my Hungarian mother.
5
Tibor Fischer
Outside their country, Hungarian directors have had, from the critics at least, a friendly reception.
6
Tibor Fischer
It's true, some senior Hungarian writers are not known for their laughter. There is a strong Germanic influence - an attitude that if it's enjoyable it can't possibly be literature.
7
Tibor Fischer
One of my proudest achievements is that when an authoritative book about Hungarian literature came out about a decade ago, there was a little article about me which said I was a Hungarian writer but pretending not to be. Bearing in mind I can hardly write a cheque in Hungarian, I was delighted to be included in the pantheon of Hungarian writers.
8
Tibor Fischer
When I think of Hungarian films, I think of despair and bleakness, and what's more, despair and bleakness of indefensible duration.
9
Tibor Fischer
Because my name is Hungarian, everyone assumed I knew about Hungary. I didn't. They also assumed that if you knew about Hungary, you also knew about the rest of Eastern Europe.
10
Katharine Graham
One of my principal childhood memories is hearing one of the Liszt Hungarian Rhapsodies waft throughout the house.
