‘Bring down Mike Mann and we can bring down the IPCC, they reckoned. It is a classic technique for the deniers’ movement, I have discovered, and I don’t mean only those who reject the idea of global warming but those who insist that smoking doesn’t cause cancer or that industrial pollution isn’t linked to acid rain.’ – Michael E. Mann

‘Performing is a profound experience, at least for me. It’s not as if I sit down and play ‘Fire and Rain’ by myself, just to hear it again. But to offer it up… the energy that it somehow summons live takes me right back, and I do get a reconnection to the emotions.’ – James Taylor

‘The irony is that you can’t use real rain to make movies.’ – Greg Kinnear

‘When I was a kid, phone calls were a premium commodity; only the very coolest kids had a phone line of their own, and long-distance phone calls were made after eleven, when the rates went down, unless you were flamboyant with your spending. Then phone calls became as cheap as dirt and as constant as rain, and I was on the phone all the time.’ – Susan Orlean

‘Baseball calls it a curve ball for a reason: you just don’t know where some pitches will land. Your ace could get injured. Your golden glover could err. Your team could sit through a rain delay. Your manager could get ejected. Your bench must be broad and deep enough to overcome.’ – Christine Pelosi

‘I go running three times a week – outside in the park, come rain or shine, and I hate every moment of it. I hate everything about it.

‘Sense the blessings of the earth in the perfect arc of a ripe tangerine, the taste of warm, fresh bread, the circling flight of birds, the lavender color of the sky shining in a late afternoon rain puddle, the million times we pass other beings in our cars and shops and out among the trees without crashing, conflict, or harm.’ – Jack Kornfield

‘I used to listen to ‘Perfect Day’ by Hoku every single day in high school! ‘On this perfect day, nothin’ standin’ in my way… Don’t you try to rain on my perfect day.’ It pumped me up when I was feeling down or defeated, whether it was from the cool kids making me feel left out or feeling overwhelmed with homework and mean teachers.’ – Kara Lindsay

‘I was a daughterless mother. I had nowhere to put the things a mother places on her daughter. The nail polish I used to paint our toenails hardened. Our favorite videos gathered dust.

‘I have a very specific memory of watching ‘Singing in the Rain,’ and looking at myself in the mirror after watching it and perceiving myself as one of those people that I was just watching on T.V.

‘In England, rain was thin and cold, and made you hunch up inside your coat, walking home from the bus stop.

‘Even as global warming increases the frequency of El Nino and the Atlantic event, their effects are being amplified by the annual loss of an area of rain forest the size of New Jersey.

‘Meteorologists are pretty faces reading scripts telling you whether it’s going to rain tomorrow.’ – Noam Chomsky

References to Tay Zonday and ‘Chocolate Rain’ and allusions to ‘Office Space’ and ‘XKCD.’ It was a tongue-in-cheek nod to that crowd, and it kicked off a chain reaction.’ – Drew Houston

‘Added to the rooster of courses, ‘Tiger Woods 10′ adds in seven new courses from the pristine Bethpage Black, home of this year’s U.S. Open, to the legendary Pinehurst.

‘Being alone on the moors is scary; as the rain clouds settle in, it makes you realise your place in nature.’ – Dave Davies

‘With ‘Black Rain,’ I spent a lot of time with homicide detectives, and I spent a lot of time with different brokers on ‘Wall Street.’ It helps get the rhythm of the piece and the tone, and how overplayed or underplayed it might be. That’s also the magic of movies: You get to hang out and live these different lives.’ – Michael Douglas

And like true Oregonians, I don’t carry an umbrella anymore.’ – Reggie Lee

‘Older boys were allowed to beat younger ones at my 15th-century English boarding school, and every boy had to run a five-mile annual steeplechase through the sludge and rain of an October day, as horses do.

‘Having rain on your tuxedo is a pretty good reminder that you’re not James Bond.’ – Joel Edgerton

‘If we see a sad rain, it doesn’t mean the rain is sad, but it means we see it. That’s an easily dismissible kind of projection. But what I’m struggling to say, is that we take that rain in through our own hearts and emotions and senses and skin, and all those filters have an impact.’ – Karen Joy Fowler

‘I can recall, as a young adult, running through the rain forest at the Forest Reserve, at times feeling a sense of fear when I felt I was in danger. In danger of confronting an ugly snake or a coral snake, which represented the greatest fear of someone in a rural area when you traverse the forest.’ – Anthony Carmona

‘Encourage children to write their own stories, and then don’t rain on their parade. Don’t say, ‘That’s not true.’ Applaud flights of fantasy. Help with spelling and grammar, but stand up and cheer the use of imagination.’ – Gail Carson Levine

‘I like the ‘Blackwell’ adventure games, and I’m fond of some of Telltale’s games, like ‘Hector’ and ‘Puzzle Agent’ – simple stories, but fun. I thought ‘Heavy Rain’ was amazing.’ – Jane Jensen

‘The fans of ‘Speed’ are very different from the fans of ‘To Wong Foo,’ which are different from ‘Donnie Darko.’ Look at the classics I’ve been in: ‘No Country for Old Men’… ‘Little Miss Sunshine’… ‘Rain Man’ was my first big studio movie! How lucky is that?’ – Beth Grant

‘The Rio de Contas, a wide, almost delta-like river, was startling, a sudden big sky and a feeling of openness, and very bright. It was noisy with birds. The rain forest houses most of the earth’s plant and animal population. I hadn’t anticipated it would be so loud.’ – Bill Buford

‘Reading ‘The Third Sex’ feels a bit like flying in a veering helicopter over a rain forest that is disappearing before one’s eyes.’ – Stacey D’Erasmo

‘In ‘Blade Runner,’ the here is quite enough: a vision of dark, cramped, urban squalor. This is Los Angeles in the year 2019, when most of the earth’s inhabitants have colonized other planets, and only a polyglot refuse heap of humanity remains. Los Angeles is a Japanized nighttown of sleaze and silicon, fetid steam, and perpetual rain.’ – Richard Corliss

‘The music is something outside myself that’s also inside myself… Music and a sense of another presence always went hand in hand. Even when I was three, I would improvise music, and my maternal grandfather would act as an audience and used to applaud. I would imitate things like thunder and rain.’ – John Tavener

‘I spend a fair chunk of time in Los Angeles, and after about ten days of warmth and unbroken clear skies, you start to yearn for a bit of good old British gloom and rain!’ – Sean Bean

‘We love the sight of the brown and ruddy earth; it is the color of life, while a snow-covered plain is the face of death. Yet snow is but the mask of the life-giving rain; it, too, is the friend of man, the tender, sculpturesque, immaculate, warming, fertilizing snow.’ – John Burroughs

‘Remember the Y2K bug? Ahhh, those were the days… I’ll never forget that New Year’s Eve. My wife and I were in Golden Bay dancing with her parents to Abba songs when suddenly, the rain began to fall.

‘I remember the first vinyl I bought: ‘Purple Rain,’ my favorite Prince album, ever.’ – Jose James
