Nerve Wracking Quotes By Nina Conti

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Kenneth Branagh

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Tinsel Korey

I was sitting on top of people and it was just really uncomfortable. There was no place to move. And, I don't like auditioning, anyways.

The whole thing was just really nerve-wracking, but I ended up getting it. — Tinsel Korey

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Jill Douglas

You've given it some thought, you've tried to prepare as well as you can, but you're reacting to what you see so you can't really prepare that much.

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Vivian Swift

Anticipation. In love and travel, getting there is half the fun. The lustful impatience, the passionate daydreams, the nerve-wracking waiting... lovers and travelers are all alike when they find themselves on the brink of a new adventure. — Vivian Swift

Nerve Wracking Quotes By George Elliott Clarke

Donna E. Smyth - adventures with words; she is always doing something new and unique. Beginning with her visceral morality, her stories are startling, nerve wracking, provocative: she combines Angela Carter's beautiful style with Patricia Highsmith's malevolent atmospheres. Smyth shatters clichs and dismisses mere sociology. She knows that pleasure is besieged by terror. She tells us what we don't want to know, but need to know. Smyth's writing disturbs us, enrichingly, because truth can never be at peace with language. — George Elliott Clarke

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Yoko Ono

Some people get medals and awards and all that, and maybe not intentionally - maybe the world is making them do it - but they sort of just follow what they were doing. Repeat or follow what they were doing all their lives, in their style of music or whatever. In my case, I always try to start from scratch. It's very nerve-wracking actually, but it's interesting. — Yoko Ono

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Brian Henson

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Ilana Glazer

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Brian Henson

To anyone who's trying to be an artist, in any medium, it's a very odd and lonely and nerve-wracking and scary process when you let anybody see what you're working on. You have to learn to listen to your instincts. Absorb other people's advice, opinions, or whatever it may be from the outside world, but at the end of the day, you have to be true to whatever it is that you're trying to say in that work. — Brian Henson

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Diet Eman

It was always exciting, but it was also always dangerous. And fear takes a toll finally: when you live in danger from moment to moment, the constant tension becomes very wearying.

Nerve Wracking Quotes By John Oliver

I have occasionally - if ever I do interviews that are difficult or nerve-wracking - I take my wife's dog tags and have them in my pocket because it's a very quick way to realize that what I'm doing is not that important. It's not really worth getting stressed about because it's not, you know, war. — John Oliver

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Mehmet Murat Ildan

Man always behave like a snail on the railway! He thinks he has infinite time and moves accordingly, with the speed of unbelievable and nerve-wracking slowness! — Mehmet Murat Ildan

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Michael Jordan

It is nerve-wracking watching my kids' games. — Michael Jordan

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Seth Rogen

I have an unfortunate compulsion. I really would rather not do it, as it is very nerve-wracking and un-fun. But when it works, there is nothing like it. — John Hodgman

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Juliette Lewis

I don't know what's more nerve-wracking, job insecurity or job security. There's opportunities and things you compromise with both. When I had endless freedom of schedule, or when I commit to a movie for two months, then I could manage my music and go on the road. — Juliette Lewis

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Nicholas Brendon

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Oddny Eir

I wanted to tell it like it is, that they were right: it's nerve-wracking being a teenager. But instead, I explained to them the importance of being a trusted friend, and that friendship made the teenage years fun, when true camaraderie grew and developed. — Oddny Eir

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Brendon Urie

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Ray Romano

It was very nerve-wracking for me. I had to be drunk and have a threesome. I'm not that guy. Bobby Cannavale is that guy. But it was Vegas and things got crazy, and it happened. We go to Vegas to try to sign Elvis Presley and things get crazy. My character [in Vinyl] is stoned. — Ray Romano

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Courtney Cole

I squint my eyes and glare at him.
"I don't have a crush on Quinn anymore."
He raises a golden eyebrow.
I shake my head. "No."
"Why is that?"
I stare at him long and hard, trying to decide what to say. Should I be downright, painfully honest? I've always found that the best way to be, so I nod.
"Two words."
He waits.
"Dante. Giliberti."
I hear him suck in his breath and I smile. Sometimes, honesty is refreshing and so very worth it.
"Me?" He sounds so surprised, as though he doesn't know that he is practically a living breathing Adonis. I nod.
He studies me again and I fight the need to fidget as I wait for his reaction.
After a minute of nerve-wracking silence, he finally answers.
"So, will you keep the bracelet?"
I nod.
"Can I kiss you again?"
I nod.
So he does. — Courtney Cole

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Aaron Ashmore

With a popular show, you know that there's expectations there, so that's a little nerve-wracking when you're new and you're just trying to find your legs on something, but it's exciting, too, because that's what we work so hard for. — Aaron Ashmore

Sometimes, as a guest actor, when you come on, you're coming into a show that's already been established, and the wheels are already in motion. It can be very nerve-wracking, jumping in as a newcomer, but everyone on 'Saving Hope' was so welcoming. — Erin Karpluk

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Florence Welch

The stage is the place I feel comfortable - it's almost as if real life is where I feel most nervous. Conversations are a lot more nerve-wracking. — Florence Welch

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Donal Logue

I played on this soccer team, called Hollywood United, and there were a lot of old ex-international pro-players. We played this benefit match at the Rose Bowl, and the crowd streamed in.

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Dave Franco

On the flip side, no one has any idea who the hell I am. I felt like I had to prove myself to them. On any new project I'm working on, the first week is nerve-wracking, but especially with these people that I admire so much and who I just want to be equal with. — Dave Franco

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Ethan Hawke

Whenever actors tout off about doing their own stunts, it's always ... they're so protective of you that I always know these stunt guys are so good [and] they're never going to put you in danger. But it's fun to do something kind of exciting, even something as simple as driving 70 through a tunnel with five motorcycles ... it sounds simple, but it's actually really nerve-wracking. — Ethan Hawke

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Christopher Mintz-Plasse

I am always nervous about doing voice-over work. I'm always clammy and I worry, "What if my voice squeaks? What if I don't deliver it right?" Until you start saying the lines, it's always nerve-wracking, for some reason, and I've never gotten over that. — Christopher Mintz-Plasse

Nerve Wracking Quotes By James Scott

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Nellie McKay

It's always so nerve-wracking being up there on stage. It's even harder playing in your hometown - and I have a couple of home towns - but, you're playing for all the people you knew in high school, so it causes no small degree of panic in my mind. — Nellie McKay

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Kate Beckinsale

It's frightening enough with a male actor and not a stunt person. If you accidently punch him with the wrong hand, then you've cost them a week's work and they've got a black eye or a lot of money goes on CG to get rid of it. That was nerve wracking, but it was very civilized. Women tend to immediately take responsibility if somebody messes up with both of us saying it's our fault. Men are quite happy for it to be your fault it seems like. — Kate Beckinsale

Nerve Wracking Quotes By George Saunders

Morse found it nerve-wracking to cross the St. Jude grounds just as school was being dismissed, because he felt that if he smiled at the uniformed Catholic children they might think he was a wacko or pervert and if he didn't smile they might think he was an old grouch made bitter by the world, which surely, he felt, by certain yardsticks, he was. Sometimes he wasn't entirely sure that he wasn't a wacko of sorts, although certainly he wasn't a pervert. Of that he was certain. Or relatively certain. Being overly certain, he was relatively sure, was what eventually made one a wacko. So humility was the thing, he thought, arranging his face into what he thought would pass for the expression of a man thinking fondly of his own youth, a face devoid of wackiness or perversion, humility was the thing. — George Saunders

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Charlie Huston

I wish that the act of publishing a book was less of a nerve-wracking experience. — Charlie Huston

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Tessanne Chin

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Emily Deschanel

The first day working with my father was nerve wracking. I was terrified that I would embarrass him or he would embarrass me and it was probably one of the more tortuous days of my life. After the first day was under our belt, it was a great opportunity and I'll always look back on that experience fondly. — Emily Deschanel

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Edward Abbey

Instant communication is not communication at all but merely a frantic, trivial, nerve-wracking bombardment of cliches, threats, fads, fashions, gibberish and advertising. — Edward Abbey

Nerve Wracking Quotes By Ray Romano
