1.I get the biggest enjoyment from the random and unexpected places. Linux on cellphones or refrigerators, just because it’s so not what I envisioned it. Or on supercomputers.
2.There should be a law that no ordinary newspaper should be allowed to write about art. The harm they do by their foolish and random writing it would be impossible to overestimate – not to the artist, but to the public, blinding them to all but harming the artist not at all.
3.O! many a shaft, at random sent, Finds mark the archer little meant! And many a word, at random spoken, May soothe or wound a heart that’s broken!

8.An Internet meme is a hijacking of the original idea. Instead of mutating by random change and spreading by a form of Darwinian selection, Internet memes are altered deliberately by human creativity. There is no attempt at accuracy of copying, as with genes – and as with memes in their original version.
9.I look a lot busier than I am, as I’m actually a rather sporadic, random person and I’ll play a few gigs and then disappear for a while.

17.With police wielding unprecedented powers to invade privacy, tap phones and conduct searches seemingly at random, our civil liberties are in a very precarious condition.
18.I was in art school, and we had all these random classes. We’d listen to a lot of Bollywood. I’d listen to Spanish music – and I don’t even speak Spanish, but Hector Lavoe is amazing – we listened to French music like Edith Piaf. She’s tight. I like cool vocal inflections; I like cool sounds. I pretty much listen to anything I think is good.

24.Game shows are designed to make us feel better about the random, useless facts that are all we have left of our education.
25.I’ve been asking myself: ‘Why put together these things – CDs, albums?’ The answer I came up with is, well, sometimes it’s artistically viable. It’s not just a random collection of songs. Sometimes the songs have a common thread, even if it’s not obvious or even conscious on the artists’ part.
26.I care most about what rappers think about me as a rapper, and I’ve gotten a lot of praise. I think rappers understand I’m a really good rapper, and that means more to me than a random person, you know, ’cause they know what goes into making rap music.
27.Maybe life is random, but I doubt it.

32.Big companies are like marching bands. Even if half the band is playing random notes, it still sounds kind of like music. The concealment of failure is built into them.

34.I don’t believe that if you do good, good things will happen. Everything is completely accidental and random. Sometimes bad things happen to very good people and sometimes good things happen to bad people. But at least if you try to do good things, then you’re spending your time doing something worthwhile.

41.Moving and motion tends to make things pop up. But things pop up for me, really, at just odd intervals or at random times that aren’t really convenient, so I’m a big fan of the voice memo recorder on my phone. That’s the only way I can remember things.
42.Why trip off some random person in Idaho that doesn’t feel my vibe? Like, no thank you. Stay in your life; I’ll stay in mine.
43.I’ve done some really weird gigs. The ones where no one turned up – they’re probably not the interesting ones to talk about. I played some pretty random ones in L.A. I signed to play all-R&B nights or an all-comedy night where I’d be the only white person there. They were fun.

46.This wretched brain gave way, and I became a wreck at random driven, without one glimpse of reason or heaven.
47.I find it funny how people from Boston and New York hate each other because of pro teams. But, like, everyone on the Red Sox is a random millionaire athlete from somewhere else.

53.I’d rather kiss my best friend than kiss some random guy.
54.One thing I’ve been doing at Baidu is running a workshop on the strategy of innovation. The idea is that innovation is not these random unpredictable acts of genius but that, instead, one can be very systematic in creating things that have never been created before.
55.Sure, being good at your job is really important, but in acting, so much of the decision’s already made the minute you walk in the room because they’re like, ‘His hair’s good or she’s got the right skin color’ or whatever. It’s so random, but it’s so physically oriented.
56.I’m not a Starbucks guy. I’m a Dunkin Donuts guy, but I like to pay for the coffee of the other folks behind me in line. It typically costs me less than $10, and makes the other people feel good, but more importantly, it makes me feel so good, and random acts of kindness change the world one person at a time.
