Top My Mentor Quotes

My Mentor Quotes By Chris Zylka

My mentor Jon Simmons introduced me to the Stanislavski system, which is so heavy on back-story. So you write and write and write these back stories about a character and then you throw it away. So then on set, if it doesn't come, then you didn't do your work. — Chris Zylka

My Mentor Quotes By Ravi Teja

My Mentor Quotes By Suzanne Collins

I got the idea from our family's plant book. The place where we recorded things you cannot trust to memory. The page begin's with the person's picture. A photo if we can find it. If not, a sketch or a painting by Peeta. Then, in my most careful handwriting, come all the details it would be a crime to forget. Lady licking Prim's cheek. My father's laugh. Peeta's father with the cookies. The colour of Finnick's eyes. What Cinna would do with a length of silk. Boggs reprogramming the Holo. Rue poised on her toes, arms slightly extended, like bird about to take flight. On and on. We seal the pages with salt water and promises to live well to make their deaths count. Haymitch finally joins us, contributing twenty-three years of tributes he was forced to mentor. Additions become smaller. An old memory that surfaces. A late promise preserved between the pages. Strange bits of happiness, like the photo of Finnick and Annie's newborn son. — Suzanne Collins

My Mentor Quotes By Anusree Basu

I could see myself in him. His imagination and creativity awed me. I decided to mentor him but soon he started sharing everything with me and I realized he was your son. I was dissuaded to guide him further, his face reminded me of my days of struggle, but I took things on my stride and continued helping him. — Anusree Basu

My Mentor Quotes By Gia Coppola

My mentor in college was Stephen Shore. I loved his color palettes and his taking mundane things but finding them fascinating. — Gia Coppola

My Mentor Quotes By Veronica Blade

My mentor used to say that no one can make us feel badly about ourselves unless we allow it. He lectured me endlessly that the biggest offenders to shrink our self-worth weren't others, but ourselves. — Veronica Blade

My biggest mentor is myself because I've had to study, so that's been my biggest influence. — Brendan Rodgers

My Mentor Quotes By Bresha Webb

Jamie Foxx. He's been very much a mentor and friend, and we've worked together several times. He's just been such an influence in my career. There's nothing that man can't do, and that's something I would like to reflect in my career. — Bresha Webb

My Mentor Quotes By Kathleen Grissom

What advice do you have for writers working on their first novels?
If you feel called to write a book, consider it a gift. Look around you. What assistance is the universe offering you as support? I was given an amazing mentor, a poet, Eleanor Drewry Dolan, who taught me the importance of every word. To my utter amazement, there were times she found it necessary to consult three dictionaries to evaluate one word. — Kathleen Grissom

My Mentor Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

I am highly indebted to all my mentors.
Every one need a mentor for guidance and support. — Lailah Gifty Akita

My Mentor Quotes By Oliver Bowden

Ah, I am weary of this fight, Claudia ... Weary not because I am tired, but because our struggle seems to move in one direction only ... towards chaos. Today I have more questions than answers. This is why I have come so far: to find clarity. To find the wisdom left behind by the Great Mentor, so that I may better understand the purpose of our fight, and my place in it. Should anything happen to me, dear Claudia ... should my skills fail me, or my ambition lead me astray, do not seek revenge or retribution in my memory, but fight to continue the search for truth so that all may benefit. My story is one of many thousands, and the world will suffer if it ends too soon. — Oliver Bowden

My Mentor Quotes By Jane F. Kotapish

I danced before I wrote. Everything my mentor, Marjorie Mussman, teaches about movement -- creating focus, taking chances, making an unequivocal statement -- is beautifully applicable to the craft of writing. — Jane F. Kotapish

My Mentor Quotes By Isobelle Carmody

My favourite mentor brother told me that there were three kinds of people: followers, leaders and scouts. Scouts are capeable of leadership, but they could not tolerate the responsibility of it. Disinclined to take orders either, they invariably flouted authority and fomented strife. This is why scouts, he said wryly, were the first to be sent into danger, It was half hoped they would be killed. 'I fear you are destined to trouble us as a scout, little sister' he said — Isobelle Carmody

My Mentor Quotes By Tina Weymouth

Richard Lloyd of Television is one of my favorite guitarists. His mentor was Jimi Hendrix when he was just 14. Jimi was always pounding everything he knew into that kid. — Tina Weymouth

My Mentor Quotes By J.D. Salinger

As nearly as possible in the spirit of Matthew Salinger, age one, urging a luncheon companion to accept a cool lima bean, I urge my editor, mentor and (heaven help him) closest friend, William Shawn, genius domus of The New Yorker, lover of the long shot, protector of the unprolific, defender of the hopelessly flamboyant, most unreasonably modest of born great artist-editors to accept this pretty skimpy-looking book. — J.D. Salinger

My Mentor Quotes By Nadine Velazquez

I have started my own foundation. It's called Follow Your Art. It's at its infancy but my goal is to mentor teenage girls through one of the most difficult times in their lives. — Nadine Velazquez

My Mentor Quotes By Lex Luger

When I saw that Wrestlemania had broken an indoor attendance record, I just walked into a wrestling office, Championship Wrestling in Florida, during the offseason, and they introduced me to Hiro Matsuda, who became my mentor ... and the rest is history! — Lex Luger

My Mentor Quotes By Winona Ryder

I was so lucky that I got to meet certain people. It came through Roddy McDowall, who had become a photographer and would do these portraits of celebrities. Then he would get another well-known person to write a thing. He photographed me when I was 15 or 16, and he got Jason Robards to write the thing because he was sort of my mentor. And Roddy would invite me to these dinner parties that were insane. Like, Elizabeth Taylor and Maureen O'Hara and people that were just crazy. I still can't really believe that I met them. — Winona Ryder

My Mentor Quotes By Sheryl Sandberg

Are you my mentor? If someone has to ask the question, the answer is probably no. When someone finds the right mentor, it is obvious. The question becomes a statement. — Sheryl Sandberg

My Mentor Quotes By Tony Dungy

The book is actually called 'A Mentor Leader, a Different Way to Lead.' It really talks about my experience in the way I tried lead our football team, things that I learned from, basically, the coaches that I played for and my parents about leadership. And it is a little bit different, counter to maybe what society says about great leaders. — Tony Dungy

My Mentor Quotes By Taron Egerton

I only act in films where I've got an A-lister as my mentor. — Taron Egerton

My Mentor Quotes By Heather Hemmens

I did my first play in fifth grade. This same fifth grade teacher asked me several years later what I wanted to do when I grew up.

I'm proud to be Archie's son. Being a quarterback, I had my mentor and hero living in the same house. — Peyton Manning

My Mentor Quotes By Michael Symon

My Mentor Quotes By Justin Bieber

When I hear him sing and see what he can do, though, it's always a reminder of why I look up to Usher as my mentor and why I will always be an Usher fan to my core. But I'm lucky to say that he's an even better friend to me than he's a mentor. He's truly the real deal. — Justin Bieber

My Mentor Quotes By Ram Shriram

My mother has been my mentor in my life. The number one attribute was discipline. To be on time to school, never miss a day at school, and then checking out homework and making sure I was doing it correctly and signing me up for lots of activities, extra tests and classes. — Ram Shriram

My Mentor Quotes By Terry J. Lundgren

My father was clearly a mentor. He told me if you work 10 years and you worked 40 hours a week, then you had 10 years experience. But if you worked 10 years and you worked 60 hours a week, then you had 15 years' experience. — Terry J. Lundgren

I vow to be everything you need, friend, lover, mentor, keeper of your mind, body, and soul. I vow my life and everything I am to you, my world. — Lena Black

My Mentor Quotes By Richard J. Roberts

My elementary education was at Christ Church infant school and St. Stephen's junior school. At St. Stephen's, I encountered my first real mentor, the headmaster Mr. Broakes. He must have spotted something unusual in me, for he spent lots of time encouraging my interest in mathematics. — Richard J. Roberts

My Mentor Quotes By Galen Rowell

My interest in photography did not begin with books or mentors, or with any burning desire to see the world through a camera. It evolved from an intense devotion to mountains and wilderness that eventually shaped all the parts of my life and brought them together. — Galen Rowell

My Mentor Quotes By Seth Moulton

The late Rev. Peter Gomes at The Memorial Church at Harvard was a true mentor to me when I was in college. He instilled in me a commitment to service, saying that it's not enough to believe in service, or support those who serve-you ought to find a way yourself to serve. When I looked at different options after college, nobody inspired me more than the 18- and 19-year-olds who serve on the front lines of our nation's military. Serving with them in the Marines as we together served our country was the greatest honor of my life to date. — Seth Moulton

My Mentor Quotes By Jordin Sparks

I'm excited about the new judges on 'American Idol.' Jennifer Lopez was a real mentor to me my season and I admire her so much. And I kind of have a crush on Steven Tyler. It's going to be interesting to see is one person going to stand out among the judges or if everyone will sort of be equal. — Jordin Sparks

My Mentor Quotes By Gloria D. Gonsalves

I aspire to be an inspirer, not a mentor. As such it would be fulfilling to know that someone read what I wrote and tailored it creatively to serve positively their divine purpose. — Gloria D. Gonsalves

My Mentor Quotes By Tom Wolfe

Sir Gerald Moore: I was at dinner last evening, and halfway through the pudding, this four-year-old child came alone, dragging a little toy cart. And on the cart was a fresh turd. Her own, I suppose. The parents just shook their heads and smiled. I've made a big investment in you, Peter. Time and money, and it's not working. Now, I could just shake my head and smile. But in my house, when a turd appears, we throw it out. We dispose of it. We flush it away. We don't put it on the table and call it caviar. — Tom Wolfe

My Mentor Quotes By Condoleezza Rice

I know that people look at my life and ask, "How can I achieve some of those things?" So, I suppose in that sense, yes, I'm a role model. But I try to think of myself more as a mentor, as somebody who I hope young people feel comfortable approaching or writing to. — Condoleezza Rice

My Mentor Quotes By Mary Pope Osborne

While I was drawn to the Renaissance, my first (unpublished) novels took place in modern times. When the subject of alchemy started creeping into my stories, an astute mentor observed that the bits about alchemy might fit better in another time frame. When I finally decided to weave the pieces about the medieval science into historical settings, a successful novel began to emerge. (And I dusted off that art history book, and put it to use once again.) — Mary Pope Osborne

My Mentor Quotes By Jim Rohn

I remember saying to my mentor, 'If I had more money, I would have a better plan.' He quickly responded, 'I would suggest that if you had a better plan, you would have more money.' You see, it's not the amount that counts; it's the plan that counts. — Jim Rohn

My Mentor Quotes By John Wooden

While I made my living as a coach, I have lived my life to be a mentor-and to be mentored!-constantly.Everything in the world has been passed down. Every piece of knowledge is something that has been shared by someone else. If you understand it as I do, mentoring becomes your true legacy. It is the greatest inheritance you can give to others. It is why you get up every day-to teach and be taught. — John Wooden

My Mentor Quotes By Michelle Phan

I am first a creator, but my ongoing objective is to leverage my personal success to help mentor new and existing talent and further help them achieve their goals. Endemol Beyond shares this vision, and together, we will drive the future of original content for generations to come. — Michelle Phan

My Mentor Quotes By Richelle Mead

I was crushing on my mentor. Crushing on my older mentor. I had to be out of my mind. He was seven years older than me. Old enough to be my ... well, okay, nothing. But still older than me. Seven years was a lot. He's been learning to write when I was born. When I'd been learning to write and throw books at my teachers, he's probably been kissing girls. Probably lots of girls, considering how he looked. — Richelle Mead

My Mentor Quotes By Margaret Mead

I was a child that both my parents wanted. I was told from the time I was born that I was totally satisfactory. I had a chance to be what I wanted to be. — Margaret Mead

My Mentor Quotes By Allyson Felix

When I was younger, Jackie Joyner-Kersee was a mentor to me and gave me great advice. The best was to 'work 100 percent, but enjoy every moment along the way.' Sometimes you get so in the zone, you forget to enjoy your passions. I love running - but I also love the movies, relaxing on the beach, shopping and spending time with my friends. Enjoying my life helps me enjoy my running. — Allyson Felix

My Mentor Quotes By Lisa Anderson

But here's the problem: fewer and fewer folks are willing to do this. I'm constantly railing on my Boundless audience to go out and get a mentor. I think I've finally driven it far enough into their skulls. The problem is, they're coming back to me, saying, "Lisa, we're trying, but no one's willing to take us on." Seriously? Empty nesters, where are you? Retirees, surely you have some time. — Lisa Anderson

My Mentor Quotes By Donna Karan

I did Urban Zen for myself, to make clothes for me and my friends, a similar philosophy to when I started Donna Karan. Except this time I hope it will stay that way so that I will be able to support young designers and mentor them. — Donna Karan

It was very challenging to mentor the mentors, and yes, you do see more sides of my personality. — Tim Gunn

My Mentor Quotes By Tony Dungy

I am thankful that in my current role I can mentor other coaches. I interact directly with seventeen coaches on my staff but I'm also trying to be an example to others outside the organization. I want to prove that it's possible to win or lose while maintaining a calm dignity and respect toward your players, officials, and the opposition. My hope is that my profession can have an impact on countless youth who are looking to their coaches for guidance on sportsmanship, how effort pays off, and the other life lessons that come from competing. — Tony Dungy

Tommy Smothers is my longest mentor, and Dave Eggers is my youngest. — Don Novello

I'm really thankful to have my own record label. I've always looked up to people like Madonna when she launched Maverick Records.

He came to my show, and he said, "I just want people to know about you." — Janelle Monae

My Mentor Quotes By Christian Kachel

Who is the more righteous? The stoic farmer who dutifully tends his fields while the world burns? Or the man who brings merciless violence to the enemies of peace? Is the common criminal an equal villain to the agent who kills on behalf of a cause greater than himself? I've answered these questions and made peace with their consequences. As I mounted my horse alongside Vettias, my mentor in the dark arts, I would need to draw on the fortitude these answers provided more than ever. We — Christian Kachel

My Mentor Quotes By Cory Booker

I don't know what the strategy will be in Washington.

Lucy Mercedes Martinez, my mother, was probably my first mentor. She really tried to take care of me in spite of myself, and in spite of her own struggles with alcohol.

My Mentor Quotes By Benigno Aquino III

Without my mentors, there is no Misty. — Misty Copeland

My Mentor Quotes By Mike Birbiglia

My Mentor Quotes By Condoleezza Rice

Search for role models you can look up to and people who take an interest in your career. But here's an important warning: you don't have to have mentors who look like you.

Most of my mentors have been old white men, because they were the ones who dominated my field. — Condoleezza Rice

My Mentor Quotes By David Halberstam

Among those dazzled by the Administration team was Vice-President Lyndon Johnson. After attending his first Cabinet meeting he went back to his mentor Sam Rayburn and told him with great enthusiasm how extraordinary they were, each brighter than the next, and that the smartest of them all was that fellow with the Stacomb on his hair from the Ford Motor Company, McNamara. "Well, Lyndon," Mister Sam answered, "you may be right and they may be every bit as intelligent as you say, but I'd feel a whole lot better about them if just one of them had run for sheriff once." It is my favorite story in the book, for it underlines the weakness of the Kennedy team, the difference between intelligence and wisdom, between the abstract quickness and verbal fluency which the team exuded, and the true wisdom, which is the product of hard-won, often bitter experience. Wisdom for a few of them came after Vietnam. — David Halberstam

My Mentor Quotes By Gus Van Sant

My art teacher in junior high was a very out gay man and a mentor to me. He would tell us about Greenwich Village and show us the 'Village Voice' and describe his life, but it was all sort of subversive and below the radar. — Gus Van Sant

My Mentor Quotes By Mike Tyson

My Mentor Quotes By Rico Lebrun

Occasionally, I like to select a mentor, a master, and let him guide me through a revision of one of my paintings ... I try to move into his terrain, bringing my own ammunition ... I do not believe ... that this belittles my own personality. — Rico Lebrun

My Mentor Quotes By Naomi Campbell

So when this opportunity came up through Elisabeth Murdoch and her company Shine, to be an executive producer and actually be part of the show, I liked the idea because I like the word mentor. I don't want to judge someone. I like sharing my knowledge with my girls, and anything they ask me I'll try to do to help them. Any of my real friends who know me, know that's how I really am. — Naomi Campbell
