Ventriloquist Quotes By William Goldman

You're alive!" Fezzik cried.
The man in black sat immobile, like a ventriloquist's dummy, just his mouth moving. "That is perhaps the most childishly obvious remark I have ever come across ... — William Goldman

Ventriloquist Quotes By Nina Conti

So many actors are lively-minded, creative people who just tread water in this awful way, waiting for the phone to ring and doing their hair for auditions. It feels like a bit of a dreamer's life - as opposed to a sensible ventriloquist's life. — Nina Conti

Ventriloquist Quotes By Frederic Milton Thrasher

Indescribably filthy jokes are perpetrated by a ventriloquist with the aid of a puppet.

Ventriloquist Quotes By Virginia Morell

To demonstrate, Pepperberg carried Alex on her arm to a tall wooden perch in the middle of the room. She then retrieved a green key and a small green cup from a basket on a shelf. She held up the two items to Alex's eye. "What's same?" she asked. She looked at Alex nose-to-beak. Without hesitation, Alex's beak opened: "Co-lor." "What's different?" Pepperberg asked. "Shape," Alex said. Since he lacked lips and only slightly opened his beak to reply, the words seemed to come from the air around him, as if a ventriloquist were speaking. But the words - and what can only be called the thoughts - were entirely his. — Virginia Morell

Ventriloquist Quotes By H.G.Wells

I had seen the Magic Shop from afar several times; I had passed it once or twice, a shop window of alluring little objects, magic balls, magic hens, wonderful cones, ventriloquist dolls, the material of the basket trick, packs of cards that looked all right, and all that sort of thing, but never had I thought of going in until one day, almost without warning, Gip hauled me by my finger right up to the window, and so conducted himself that there was nothing for it but to take him in. — H.G.Wells

Ventriloquist Quotes By Gillian Flynn

My eyes flipped open at exactly six A.M. This was no avian fluttering of the lashes, no gentle blink toward consciousness. The awakening was mechanical. A spooky ventriloquist-dummy click of the lids: The world is black and then, showtime! 6-0-0 the clock said -in my face, first thing I saw. 6-0-0. It felt different. I rarely woke at such a rounded time. I was a man of jagged risings: 8:43, 11:51, 9:26. My life was alarmless. — Gillian Flynn

Ventriloquist Quotes By Dana Gould

No one has ever thought this: Now that I'm out of therapy and have fixed my mental problems, I think I want to be a ventriloquist. — Dana Gould

Ventriloquist Quotes By John Marsden

How strange it would now - like speaking without a voice. Is that what music is then, a ventriloquist with his doll ? — John Marsden

Just like every kid who comes into show business on some level, I used to put shows on in my basement. I even started with doing tricks and having a ventriloquist dummy. — Don Scardino

Ventriloquist Quotes By Nina Conti

I do laugh when I hear myself saying, 'I am a ventriloquist.' I am definitely suited to it, though. I took it and ran with it quite hungrily. It is not for everyone, but it is just the chance to write for a character. — Nina Conti

Ventriloquist Quotes By Gideon Defoe

It's like my old Aunt Joan always used to say: if you're going to end up fighting monsters, Pirate Captain, try to stick to ventriloquist's dummies who have gone alive. — Gideon Defoe

Ventriloquist Quotes By William Safire

To be accused of 'channeling' is to be dismissed as a ventriloquist's live dummy, derogated at not having a mind of one's own. — William Safire

Ventriloquist Quotes By Jarod Kintz

I'm like a ventriloquist chasing his own voice. I can whisper and shout at the same time, and this is the closest approximation I have to a description of love. I would offer you something to drink, but I'm not in the kitchen, even though it may sound like I am. — Jarod Kintz

Ventriloquist Quotes By Jeffrey Eugenides

Often he had the impression that the person answering questions from the scratchy armchair was a dummy he was controlling, that this had been true throughout his life, and that his life had become so involved with operating the dummy that he, the ventriloquist, had ceased to have a personality, becoming just an arm stuffed up the puppet's back. — Jeffrey Eugenides

Ventriloquist Quotes By Alan King

When I was a kid, I used to send away for those ventriloquist kits on the back of comic books. — Alan King

Ventriloquist Quotes By Aldous Huxley

Facts are ventriloquist's dummies. Sitting on a wise man's knee they may be made to utter words of wisdom; elsewhere, they say nothing, or talk nonsense, or indulge in sheer diabolism. — Aldous Huxley

Ventriloquist Quotes By Jeff Dunham

Ventriloquist Quotes By Octavio Paz

A silent concave of puppet buffoons
neither eagles nor jaguars
buzzard lawyers
wings of ink sawing mindibles
ventriloquist coyotes
peddlers of shadows
beneficent satraps
the cacomistle thief of hens
the monument to the Rattle and its snake
the altar to the mauser and the machete
the mausoleum of the epauletted cayman
rhetoric sculpted in phrases of cement — Octavio Paz

Ventriloquist Quotes By Dean Lilleyman

That night, I dream. And when I wake up I remember watching a film with Nannan about a ventriloquist who went mad, his dummy coming to life and speaking for itself. My dream is like the end of the film where the ventriloquist and the dummy are in the madhouse, all these mad devil-faces pressed against the iron bars of the cell door, laughing as the dummy gets up off his chair and walks towards the ventriloquist who screams. The dummy strangles him. I can't remember in the dream if I was the ventriloquist or the dummy. I'm in a funny mood all day. I don't say much. I don't feel like it. — Dean Lilleyman

Ventriloquist Quotes By Colson Whitehead

I feel about my phone the way horror-movie ventriloquists feel about their dummies: It's smarter than me, better than me, and I will kill anyone who comes between us. — Colson Whitehead

Ventriloquist Quotes By Larry Sultan

Like a ventriloquist who laughs at his dummy's jokes, I keep trying to make photographs that seduce me into believing in the image - all the time knowing better, but believing anyway. — Larry Sultan

Ventriloquist Quotes By Jeff Dunham

All through college, I was searching for characters that would make me unique and set me apart from the typical ventriloquist with the typical dummy that was the little boy, cheeky hard figure like Charlie McCarthy. — Jeff Dunham

Ventriloquist Quotes By Michael Summers

I had a dream about you last night. It wasn't until after you sold me the talking car, I realized you were the world's best ventriloquist. — Michael Summers

Ventriloquist Quotes By Henry Cloud

When we can't hold back, or set boundaries, on what comes from our lips, our words are in charge-not us. But we are still responsible for those words. Our words do not come from somewhere outside of us, as if we were a ventriloquist's dummy. They are the product of our hearts. Our saying, "I didn't mean that," is probably better translated, "I didn't want you to know I thought that about you." We need to take responsibility for our words. "But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken" (Matt. 12:36). — Henry Cloud

Ventriloquist Quotes By Jeff Dunham

I think there's a lot of, unfortunately, unfunny ventriloquists out there, so they've got a bad rap. It came after Edgar Bergen because everybody had a little cheeky boy dummy like Charlie McCarthy, and everybody decided to become a ventriloquist because Bergen had popularized it. He brought it back from the doldrums of vaudeville. — Jeff Dunham

Ventriloquist Quotes By Alexander Theroux

It's true, you can never eat a pet you name. And anyway, it would be like a ventriloquist eating his dummy. — Alexander Theroux

Ventriloquist Quotes By Norman Lock

In nearly everything I write, I am like a ventriloquist, throwing my voice into my characters, animating them by the slightest twitch as I register my anxieties and alarms. This is true even in my comedies. — Norman Lock

Ventriloquist Quotes By Gaston Leroux

But you would have lots of fun with me. For instance, I am the the greatest ventriloquist that ever lived, I am the first ventriloquist in the world! — Gaston Leroux

Ventriloquist Quotes By Caisey Quinn

If she could get into the one here at The Texas Player's Club, she'd drag Trace Corbin out by his ass, stick her arm up it, and do his entire set ventriloquist style if she had do. — Caisey Quinn

Ventriloquist Quotes By Paul Winchell

Children are so used to seeing puppets that when they see a real ventriloquist they don't understand it. — Paul Winchell

Ventriloquist Quotes By Thom Yorke

My uncle used to sit me on his lap and play "ventriloquist", only I wasn't wearing pants. — Thom Yorke

Ventriloquist Quotes By Ken Dodd

I had an idyllic childhood and when my parents bought me a Punch and Judy Show and a ventriloquist's dummy, I'd perform anywhere, anytime. My parents were wonderful when I told them I wanted to be an entertainer. — Ken Dodd

Ventriloquist Quotes By Wendy Liebman

My mom was a ventriloquist and she always was throwing her voice. For ten years I thought the dog was telling me to kill my father. — Wendy Liebman

Ventriloquist Quotes By Jeff Dunham

The only way a ventriloquist speaks differently is that he forgoes using his or her lips, and learns to reproduce sounds using the tongue, upper palate, and teeth only. Those 'difficult' letters are B, F, M, P, V, W, and Y. — Jeff Dunham

Ventriloquist Quotes By P.G. Wodehouse

I remained motionless, like a ventriloquist's dummy whose ventriloquist has gone off to the local and left it sitting. — P.G. Wodehouse

Ventriloquist Quotes By David Lodge

It is, as I say, easy enough to describe Holden's style of narration; but more difficult to explain how it holds our attention and gives us pleasure for the length of a whole novel. For, make no mistake, it's the style that makes the book interesting. The story it tells is episodic, inconclusive and largely made up of trivial events. Yet the language is, by normal literary criteria, very impoverished. Salinger, the invisible ventriloquist who speaks to us through Holden, must say everything he has to say about life and death and ultimate values within the limitations of a seventeen-year-old New Yorker's argot, eschewing poetic metaphors, periodic cadences, fine writing of any kind. — David Lodge

Ventriloquist Quotes By Nathan Englander

What interests me when I'm writing is being able to crawl into a character's head and speak from his or her mouth. It's not pulling the strings on a marionette, it's not playing ventriloquist, and it's not mimicry. It's about inhabiting a character, and, at the same time, being totally unaware of what you've become. — Nathan Englander

Ventriloquist Quotes By Russell Banks

No, because I am not a ventriloquist. — Russell Banks

Ventriloquist Quotes By Qwana M. BabyGirl Reynolds-Frasier
