10 QUOTES WITH «NERVOUSNESS»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word nervousness.
1
Ben Brantley
It's nowhere near as intense as what I imagine an actor experiences backstage, but I feel a fluttering nervousness before a curtain goes up on a play. I mean, any play, anywhere - on Broadway or the Bowery or in a church basement.
2
Jessica Chastain
I think that with any emotion - fear, love, nervousness - if the actor's feeling it, then the audience feels it.
3
Goran Ivanisevic
It's fun to be there with the guys, to practice with them, arrange the balls, do this, do that, but when you play you can get some of this nervousness out of your system.
4
James Earl Jones
I think stutterers are funny. And I know it's rude and politically incorrect to laugh at stutterers. But I think it is okay because I know why they're funny. They make people nervous. People think, when on earth are they going to get the word out, so they start laughing out of their own nervousness.
5
Fran Lebowitz
There is no such thing as inner peace. There is only nervousness or death. Any attempt to prove otherwise constitutes unacceptable behavior.
6
Richard Lester
Nervousness was never something I would ever associate with the Beatles ever. A Hard Day's Night was relatively unscathed by marijuana, but even then they were quite relaxed about it.
7
Paul Lynde
If I ever completely lost my nervousness I would be frightened half to death.
8
James Maslow
Look, every guy is nervous when they talk to girls, but I find that little bit of nervousness to be kind of fun.
9
Rick Rubin
I've gotten to work with amazing people. I would say usually we get to a point before we get into the studio where there isn't that sense of anxiety or nervousness of who they are because I don't think it would be as productive in the studio if that was the case. But maybe meeting someone like Neil Young for the first time made me anxious.
10
Michaela Watkins
I do think non-linearly. So I think that comes off as nervousness or anxiety in a person.
