136
The Rolling Stones have been the best of all possible worlds: they have the lack of pretension and sentimentality associated with the blues, the rawness and toughness of hard rock, and the depth which always makes you feel that they are in the midst of saying something.

I’ve never met any artist who illustrated one of my books, although I’ve corresponded briefly with one. I have always been impressed by the technical expertise involved in the covers, even if sometimes puzzled by the subject matter.
173
I’m not impressed by someone’s degree… I’m impressed by them making movies.
174
I’ve been impressed, obviously, with what Israel has done over the years, as it related to technology, agriculture, research in general.
175

176

Cleveland Abbe
178
I just see how Donald Trump treats other people, and I was impressed by that.
179
I’ve always done a lot of stunts in the past, and I sound like I’m tooting my own horn here, but I’ve always impressed the people I’ve worked with, and they’ve let me do more and more.
180
I’m very impressed by the imagery in the ‘Apologia’, which is a kind of sustained poem. It’s not just a piece of apologetics of the sort you find in Jesuit literature: ‘Why I came over’, and so on. It’s a tremendously rewarding book but requires perseverance on the part of the reader.

181
I left Birmingham for Wigan because I was impressed with what Paul Jewell was doing, but I ended up back with the gaffer at Villa.
182

183

184
I was really impressed by ‘2312.’
185
I wholeheartedly believe that Andy Biggs is the right man to take up the legacy that Matt Salmon is leaving behind. I have worked with Andy for a number of years, and I have been impressed by his commitment to the Constitution and the principles of conservatism.
186
People are impressed with me – because I can sleep for just 45 minutes – I’m used to it.
187
I would be lying I didn’t mention I saw Dominick Cruz‘s performance at UFC 178 and was impressed by his dominating performance.
188
For many years, I’ve always been attached to what they call the Great American Songbook, and Kern was a great leader of that because he had the classical training of Europe. He impressed all the greatest composers, like Cole Porter and Gershwin. They couldn’t believe he was writing the songs he was writing.
189
Lauren Bacall, James Garner, and Jack Lemmon – they’re all gone now, but I was so impressed by them.
John Heard
190
I’m really impressed every time Kanye comes to perform at ‘SNL‘ because he finds a new way to make that space work for him.

When I came to the United States, I saw a lot of Mike Tyson. I would stay up and watch all of the Mike Tyson fights. A friend here said, ‘You got to do Jiu-Jitsu. That’s the thing.’ I said, ‘C’mon, Jiu-Jitsu would never beat Mike Tyson.’ So, he showed me the Royce Gracie tape. I was so impressed with the thing.
192
Yeah, I’m very impressed with Lifetime, this is the first time I’ve worked with them. I really like the kind of programming that they’re into, so I’m hoping that I will.
Beau Bridges
193
My kids completely understand that I may be on a huge show or in a big movie, but most of the time, they are not terribly impressed.
194
I’m never impressed with myself!
195
Maharaj-ji, in my first darshan, my first meeting with him, showed me his powers. At that point I was impressed with the power. But subsequently, I realized that it was really his love that pulled me in. His love is unconditional love.
196
I’m particularly impressed by the creation of the character of Spock, which really was Leonard Nimoy’s singular creation. He used everything he had.
197
What has impressed me the most about the Italians whose tables we’ve sat at is that they are traditional cooks but also outrageously innovative. These people are wild improvisers.
Frances Mayes
198
I am always impressed by interviewers who can do the whole thing without notes. I can’t. I need reminders on my knee. Dates, first names, quotes in bold text.
199
From what I’ve seen he keeps his right side forward, he throws his left hand, throws his left leg and likes to throw a few elbows, but to be honest with you, I’m not very impressed by Darren Till – I think Masvidal is a better fighter. I think he brings more to the table than Darren Till.
200
I was surprised that when you get into electoral politics how scientific the analysis was in the electorate. You can identify on a state-by-state or district-by-district basis fundamental building blocks that behave in different ways. I was impressed in general with the sophistication of polling.
201
I myself am pathetically impressed when I meet writers of very long novels. How can they spend so many hundreds of hours at the miserable, lonely pastime of creating fiction?
202
But the first dish I ever learned how to cook outside of like family things was a dish called chicken bianco, white wine and chicken, and it was served over rice, like peppers and onions or something. It was super simple, but I was very impressed with myself.
203
Overall, I was extremely impressed with the fashion scene that Stockholm has to offer, both on and off the runways.
204
Number one, I am a true movie maker. And, you know, I am very much – I don’t want to say infatuated, but I’m impressed with the art of making a movie and invoking emotion. You know, when I started making movies, I thought it was easy, and then when I got into it, I was like, ‘This is not easy at all.’
205
I think Frank Ocean is a talented artist; I think he’s created material that made me know his name, that impressed me, with things he said on a song like ‘Novacane.’
