I saw Tina Turner do ‘Proud Mary‘ on TV, and it was so electrifying and such a unique experience. I remember crying out of excitement, and I knew that I wanted to be a performer and make people feel excited and moved, and that’s why I gravitated towards it.

As a newspaper reporter, I covered and was around a fair number of crime scenes involving juvenile delinquents, and few things bothered me more than listening to their parents. Crying, ranting, proclaiming how great their children were despite being kicked out of school or previous run-ins with the law.

I hated singing, I hated being on stage; I hated being in the Cranberries. I was constantly crying. I was going insane. I wanted to be a shopkeeper, a hairdresser, anything. I was so desperate to have a reality, friends, a regular, boring life. I missed that.

I may do some cringey and crazy things, but for crying out loud, I have Nikki Bella calling me out.

I watch ‘Morning Joeoccasionally. I used to watch a lot more than I do now, but I watched it, and all of a sudden, there was this love fest, for crying out loud – this inexplicable love fest one morning – for The Donald.

I’m a crier. You won’t see me lashing out, but you will see me crying a lot.

My dad is amazing: he taught me everything I know about sales. He volunteered to be the Girl Scout cookie mom and gave everybody sales quotas, and basically, every girl went home crying because he was super intense.

Elizabeth Chambers
I just can’t wait to get out there on stage. There’s no anxiety at all. I love being able to take this journey with the audience, because we all have a ball with it – even if we’re crying.

When I was two, a dragonfly flew near me. A man knocked it to the ground and trod on it. I remember crying because I’d caused the dragonfly to be killed.

I was going out with a few girls and we were in a local. A girl started shouting ‘Gogglebox’ at me and became really intimidating. I left but I lay awake crying, wondering if the girl knew where I lived.

You cry the first tear because something is genuinely, singularly upsetting. And you cry the second tear because everybody is crying that first tear with you, and you know that.

When I began singing, it was the first time I was happy in my life. As a baby, I would stop crying when I heard a great singer.

So many people that I’ve wanted to work with have died. I was so crazy in love with Amy Winehouse. When she died, I felt like I lost my sister all over again. I couldn’t stop crying for weeks and weeks! It was horrible! She was so wonderful and so talented.

I’d love to do more comedy. It’d just be nice to go into work and not be crying every day. Some broad slapstick would be great. Falling over banana skins would be wonderful.

I think the whole movement of #MeToo is not just calling out the sexual harassers, which is really important, but also crying out that we want equal pay, equal representation, equal opportunities, and that we want to see more female directors and photographers.

My tolerance for tears is very little when you’re beautiful and crying over nothing.

I don’t want, under any circumstances, to see in ‘Haaretz’ a picture of a woman with a baby in her arms crying while policemen deport her.

Anybody that got in your way or stopped you or barred your success, you either push through them or work around them. I don’t have enough time for excuses or crying about people saying how someone wasn’t given a proper opportunity. Nobody gave me an opportunity.

Consider yourself your own kid. Take care of yourself the way you would your own child. You wouldn’t wait until your child was crying to take care of him/her.

Sometimes you have to lie to yourself to get through the criticism, and then you’re in your closet crying. It’s been like that for me a couple of times, but I only want to learn from those things.

I remember when I was that girl crying because I was so excited to finally meet Lita. To have girls crying over me is surreal.

My comedy is about, lift yourself. See reality. Change the reality if you don’t like it. But if you can’t, then deal with things as they are because crying about it isn’t going to change anything.

I was brought up as an only child, and we were very close. But when I was 14, we got evicted. We came home to a padlock, and I looked up at my mom and she was crying, and there was nothing to do.

Acting is not hiding to me; it’s revealing. We give you license to feel. ‘Hey, she’s crying, so it’s okay if I cry, too.’ That’s the most important thing in the world, because when you stop feeling, that’s when you’re dead.

The jobs crisis has reached a boiling point, which is why we see Occupy Wall Street protestors crying out for an America that lets all of us reach for the American Dream again – a dream that says if you work hard and play by the rules, you can have a good life and retire with dignity.

John Garamendi
Making children cry for a photographer can be considered mean. But I would say that making children laugh and show off their jeans for an apparel ad is just as exploitative and less natural. Toddlers’ natural state, like, 30 percent of the time, is crying, and it doesn’t indicate pain or suffering.

Jill Greenberg
Growing up, I didn’t have great family dinners. We sat down every night, and my mother cooked food, but it was always about who was going to leave the table crying first.

Some of us are born with a weakness for music. As a baby, music would stop whatever thought I was having. If I was worried, it would stop me worrying; if I was crying, it would stop me crying. Music was a healing thing for me.

I really do prioritise humour in people. It’s a sign of intelligence. One of the most important things I heard that moulded me was Derek and Clive. That sense of release when I heard them for the first time, crying and laughing, was akin to seeing Sonic Youth for the first time.

I’m so moody all the time; I know I couldn’t be able to run a country, because I would be crying one day and yelling at people the next day, you know?

My problem starts when I see that in a situation when the girl is telling her feeling, say crying or laughing, the song is sung by a male singer.

It’s very tempting to go part-time and take up a number of non-executive directorships because everyone is crying out for talented women.

Every day, it gets harder and harder to even go outside. People start crying and stuff.

Lil Mosey
I was good at keeping my mother from crying.

My father longed for a better life for us, and when I was nine he got a job as a heart surgeon in Belfast. It was very bittersweet when we said goodbye to our relatives, and I remember crying my eyes out at the airport.

I don’t like crying. I’m a country boy, and we’re the product of our upbringing. As a boy, I was told that men don’t cry.

I’d always been the confident guy in school. I was good in math and English, but I was still shy. I couldn’t get up and speak in front of people. I was asked to do it when I was 10 years old and I burst out crying.

Chris Vance
I loved my mom so much because she had to work on a penny just to put food on the table… During the Depression in the United States, everybody had a tough time. And I was so hurt because she was crying that she didn’t have any food for us for Thanksgiving.

There’s nothing wrong with crying and letting it out, sometimes it is the best way.

When I was a model, I started with an opinion, but was encouraged to lose it. It began as play-acting, but then I lost sight of myself a bit: so when I did the audition for ‘Popworld’ and they asked my opinion, I felt like crying with happiness.

In the picture, I am crying from pain. Now, I cry for peace. I don’t want to see any more children suffer.

Now that was one thing, but from an actor’s point of view, this poor young man, crying from the moment I opened the door to the moment he left. Now if an actor did that they would say he’s over-acting.

I make fun of my dad all the time for crying, and I’m worse than he is.

I’d love to say that I’m this brave person doing this big adventure and that it’s easy. The truth is, the night before I left, I called my mom, crying and nervous, thinking, ‘What am I getting into? Can I really ride my bike across the country?’

Megan Shull
I used to go out with someone who was a really great diver, and we used to go to all the great dive spots all over the globealthough I would spend most of my time crying because I was often too scared to go into the water. But once I was in the water, I loved it.

I think what people are really crying out for is simple information they can trust when they’re bombarded by attack ads, fundraising pitchers and all sort of comment and opinion all over the place increasingly.

I’m the kind of person that if I see someone else crying, I cry too. I take on that emotion.

Dana Davis
Any time you can get Glenn Beck crying it’s a good thing.

It’s sad and upsetting when you see somebody crying hysterically, but at the same time it’s real funny.

I think that there are empty ecological niches in the literary landscape crying to be filled and when a book more or less fills a niche it’s seized on, even when it’s a far from perfect fit.

Please, please, please – I would love to do some comedy. Once you have a reputation for one thing – in my case, crying and dying – you are typecast.

During my grandma‘s funeral, I looked over once and saw my mom crying, and I felt so bad for her.

Everybody has been saying ‘Srimanthudu’ is the best film of my career. After watching the film, Dad told me that he’s never seen me perform like this. I just couldn’t stop myself from crying.

You know that melancholy feeling when you watch the end of a movie and you’re crying – but also there is hope? I wanted that feeling in ‘Monsoon.’ I don’t want people to be like, ‘This is a really depressing EP. I just want to cry the whole way through.’

To be hopeful, to embrace one possibility after another that is surely the basic instinct – crying out: High tide! Time to move out into the glorious debris. Time to take this life for what it is!

I don’t know what it’s like to be Cuban-American, but I know what it’s like to have family under Communism and to get up early in the morning and send medical supplies and try to send food and try to send money and have it intervened, and them calling and crying on the phone.

I can remember crying in the Kippax at Maine Road when City were relegated to the old First Division in 1996. Dropping out of the Premier League seemed like the worst thing imaginable – and what didn’t help was the fact United were winning just about everything going at the same time.

Having a crying baby is inspiration to get the job done quickly.

I wrote ‘Lakeside View Apartment Suites’ with Roman in my arms. He was about a month old. I was playing left-handed and finally handed him over. On the demo of it, you can hear him crying in the next room.

I wake up in the morning crying, and I’ll tell you why. It’s because I look at myself in the mirror, and then I say, ‘It’ll get better.’

I can adapt to any environment or any situation I need to, so I am ready to go to Russia. You take what you get or start crying about it, but I am re-doing ‘Rocky IV.’ I am doing the black ‘Rocky.’

Near the gates and within two cities there will be scourges the like of which was never seen: famine within plague, people put out by steel, crying to the great immortal God for relief.

I spent a lot of time readingCosmopolitan‘ and quietly crying.

There’s a photograph of me in the transplant unit where I have a vomit bucket under one arm, I have my laptop on my knees, and I’m crying, not because, you know, I’m about to have a bone marrow transplant, but because I’ve missed a deadline!

I remember ‘Hannah Montana‘ came out, and I was so depressed, I started crying because I was like, ‘I want to do that.’

You know how kids have a meltdown? They’re overtired or overstimulated? Every once in a while, Wayne, as Mickey, would say, ‘Aw, what’s the matter, little fella?’ And the kid would stop crying, his eyes would get big, and he’d look around, and the parents would say, ‘What just happened?’

Russi Taylor
Michael Jackson has a very good heart. He was crying when he was giving me the award, ’cause his mind went back over the early days.

I took ‘P.S. I Love You‘ thinking it was going to be a little funny, and I ended up crying every day on that film.

Hilary Swank
Directing is a whole series of things that would be awkward socially. But I love that. I love actors. Talking with them, touching, laughing, crying.

Justin Kurzel
I never imagined what it would be like to spend a 12-hour day crying and covered in blood.

Ally McBeal walks down the streets crying, looking for the right man. I don’t do that.

True wealth is not measured by how much money you’ve got in the bank or how many toys you’ve got. Some of the happiest people in the world don’t have a crying quarter, but they’ve got all the things that mean a lot to them.

I tend to wake up in the middle of the night with ideas crying to be documented.

I don’t fight with people – like, I can barely fight with my husband because I’ll just start crying instead.

I started crying, because there’s nothing like hearing that the artist who originally did the song likes your version.

I got bullied in high school. A lot of girls were so mean to me because their boyfriends wanted to hang out with me and my girls, so they pretty much bullied me to the point where I was crying at night.

I’m really emotional. I don’t fight with people – like, I can barely fight with my husband because I’ll just start crying instead. I’ve learned not to do that.

I have a really hard time watching my sister act in anything but especially anything where it’s a strong emotion. Whether she’s crying or she’s angry or she’s – whatever emotion she’s feeling I actually think that she’s feeling it and I want to hug her and make it all better.

Kay Panabaker
The body is a house of many windows: there we all sit, showing ourselves and crying on the passers-by to come and love us.

I remember for my Champions League debut against Anderlecht, my dad flew 27 hours to reach that game and he was crying all 95 minutes!

I often say that I want to write like Tupac rapped. I could listen to his album, and within a few minutes, I could go from thinking deeply to laughing to crying to partying.

You know, you only get to live life once, so there are two things that that yields. One is that there’s no point in crying over spilt milk, but secondly you hate wasting time, energy, and whatever talent you’ve got.

I went to theater school where there is a lot of holding each other’s faces and crying, and a lot of kid gloves.

I’ve always been good at putting things behind me – I fall apart, do my crying bit and then put it away and move it.

I don’t want any injustice brought against the bullies. Bullies just don’t know any better. Anyone who is crying about police brutality or victimization as an adult needs to stop it and realize the privileges we have in this country.

I have lunches with my girlfriends, who just turned 40, and some of those lunches, we’re crying and screaming about our husbands, saying we want to leave them and run away. And then, other lunches, we’re fine and love our husbands and are happy with our lives.

I am also lucky that I can forget about any character I do within 24 hours. I can laugh heartily within minutes of doing a crying scene.

Being on Oprah? You realize that there are a couple of types of audience members. There are like the cult people in the audience who are just crying before she gets on. And then there are the people who are playing it cool. I definitely was somewhere in the middle.

Many nights I wake up not able to breathe. I think I’m in Guantanamo Bay. I’m crying and shouting and making it very hard for the people that are with me in the room to sleep.

What people fail to understand coughing up sin and confessing it and giving it to the only one that can remove it, for crying out loud, we’re all sinners.

I can’t go on the court crying because then it’s a big advantage for my opponent, so I have to wipe my tears, have a good warm-up, feel the ball and then start grooving in the game.

I guess I worry about weird existential things, like how do we spend our final act. This is a very emotional question. I can’t answer it without crying. I think, You’re 56 years old, what did you do? You raised two good kids. What am I going to do now that is as meaningful as that? I don’t know the answer yet.

I was home-schooled, was always very close with my mom, and was very straight-laced and square. I was never the rebellious one, and I never threw hissy fits. I was the type of person that would show a Powerpoint presentation about why I should do something versus crying and screaming over it.

It’s quite something to see that what I was doing was affecting people in that respect: people jumping up and down on their couches, screaming, yelling, crying.

If I was misogynist, would I hire a woman as my CEO? Probably not. I grew up in Denmark, for crying out loud. Denmark is probably one of the places where equality is actually fully achieved. Our political system is practically a matriarchy.

I was crying because I was making my Broadway debut and there’s nothing like that. It’s the absolute mountaintop for a nerd like me that’s loved it forever.

As a kid, I’d go into the bathroom when I was having a tantrum. I’d be in the bathroom crying, studying myself in the mirror. I was preparing for future roles.

Especially in front of my dad, I don’t like being weak. I don’t like crying in front of my dad because I don’t want to make him cry.

I have embraced crying mothers who have lost their children because our politicians put their personal agendas before the national good. I have no patience for injustice, no tolerance for government incompetence, no sympathy for leaders who fail their citizens.

Donald Trump
I believe there were things I probably should have done differently. But I’m not going to spend a lot of time crying over spilt milk.

During the first couple of years of being in the band, I did feel invisible. I remember crying to my manager regularly, I just couldn’t seem to find my place and didn’t know why.

Consolation of music is different from the one of words. It starts from the inside… It cries with you instead of telling you to stop crying.

Ji-Hae Park
When I’m writing, I look like a fool because the parts are moving through me and I’m crying and laughing and making faces.

I feel like crying and sadness has brought an actual change to the shape of my mouth.

Promises are like crying babies in a theater, they should be carried out at once.

I had an injury that just dug away at me. I would spend every track session crying, attempting to run and breaking down when I couldn’t.

Sometimes you almost have to laugh to keep from crying to deal with the pain associated with the ‘hood.

Gucci Mane
On Towie’ everyone is like ‘Oh look at Megan she’s having a meltdown, she’s crying over someone’ but no, I just want them to see me not doing stupid things.

There was a scene early on during the first season of Roswell and I broke down crying. Since then, I’ve always just been able to do it.

There’s nothing like the buzz of live theater. You put it out there and receive an instant reaction: laughing, crying, yelling, applauding.

I remember when we were going to release ‘Dancing On My Own,’ and I went into the record label crying to them that I was terrified people wouldn’t support me anymore if they knew I was gay.

I love every minute of fatherhood, staying up all night, changing nappies, kids crying, I find it really funny and inspiring. It connects you to the world in a new way.
