Bill Moyers
My mom had a job, and she also took care of us, and she also took care of Dad – I always saw her pulling triple duty, doing more than I ever felt like she needed to.

If a woman makes a unilateral decision to bring pregnancy to term, and the biological father does not, and cannot, share in this decision, he should not be liable for 21 years of support.

Karen DeCrow

Friedrich Nietzsche

Brian J. White

Allegra Goodman
They make three types of movies, and if you don’t make one of those three, you have to find independent financing: It’s either big-action superhero tent-pole thing, or it’s an animated film, or it’s an R-rated, raunchy sex comedy. They don’t make movies about real people.
Rob Reiner

Jenifer Lewis
Independent films are very hard to get made, but I’m lucky enough to get them made, so I’m going to keep doing it. I like my independence. I like being able to tell a story the way I want to tell a story. I don’t like developing it with a team. I like coming to a story and deciding whether I want to do it or not.
Paul Haggis
Giancarlo Giammetti has a lot of nervous energy. He’s a director, really. He was trying to direct the Valentino movie over my shoulder. I don’t blame him – that’s been his job for 50 years. But I had final cut in the movie by contract and I wouldn’t have made the movie if I had not been completely independent.
Matt Tyrnauer

Ada Lovelace
I have long been aware that when an independent intellectual stands up to an autocratic state, step one toward freedom is often a step into prison. Now I am taking that step; and true freedom is that much nearer.

This independent report clearly indicates that while we may differ among ourselves in government about what to spend money on, we have one of the most reliable and non-political processes for agreeing on how much money there is. We don’t play games with the numbers.
Ruth Ann Minner

Chris Ware
My experience and what I do in snowboarding is really quite independent of the industry and the more independent it is, the more pure and better I feel about snowboarding.

Howard Mumford Jones

Jill Stein
There’s no such thing as an independent person.
Peter Jennings

I’m about to go to Sundance for my 3rd year, and Sundance has never felt like a real independent festival at all. On the other hand, it might to start feel that way.

Wadah Khanfar
Independent labels take nothing and make something out of it. Major labels buy that something, and try to make more out of it.

This is what’s frightening!

Mikhail Gorbachev
When the publisher here in America wanted to put the word “memoir” on the title page [of ‘Winter Journal’] and on the cover, I said, “No, no, no, no, no, no.” No genre whatsoever. It’s an independent work not really connected to those things at all.
Paul Auster
The doctrine that the world is made up of objects whose existence is independent of human consciousness turns out to be in conflict with quantum mechanics and with facts established by experiment.

Venezuela is independent. It’s diversifying its exports to a limited extent, instead of just being dependent on exports to the United States.

Noam Chomsky

I’m just thinking of 2001, which I think is the most expensive independent film ever made – which is great, someday I hope I will do one. But I know the parameters when I got onto this project – I have to take care of everyone, make sure that they are all on board, and this process interests me.
Michel Gondry
I only pay to take my son to the movies, because most of the time I only watch European movies, independent movies, or screen them privately. But I like to go to movies with my son because it’s still fun; it reminds me of why I make movies.

John Legend
Do you press the “pause” button – the “until” button in life by saying “I can’t be happy until…”? All this accomplishes is a delay in your entry into your innate state of happiness, which is independent of outer circumstances. So press the “play” button and rejoice in the now-ness of the moment!
Michael Beckwith

Irene Joliot-Curie
In the U.S., blacks are 12% of the population but commit 50% of violent crimes; can anyone honestly think this is unconnected to the fact that they average 15 points of IQ lower than the general population? That stupid people are more violent is a fact independent of skin color.
Eric S. Raymond
A horrible human toll the Russian Orthodox Church suffered throughout almost the entire 20th century. The Church is just rising from its knees. Our young post-Soviet state is just learning to respect the Church as an independent institution.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Tucker Max

Slobodan Milosevic
No people without a government of their own can expect to be treated on the same level as people of independent sovereign states. It is far better to be free to govern or misgovern yourself than to be governed by anybody else . . .
Kwame Nkrumah
The theoretical idea … does not arise apart from and independent of experience; nor can it be derived from experience by a purely logical procedure. It is produced by a creative act. Once a theoretical idea has been acquired, one does well to hold fast to it until it leads to an untenable conclusion.
Albert Einstein
The independent route was the best move for me. But I think I’ve maximized everything I could do independently. I’ve done everything out the mixtape market. I think getting the big machine behind you is the next stage when you’ve maximized the independent level.
Two Chainz
No woman can call herself free who does not own and control her body. No woman can call herself free until she can choose consciously whether she will or will not be a mother.

Thinkin’ independent but I’m sayin’ something major.

Ho Chi Minh

Albert Einstein
The priceless heritage of the free and independent interchange of thought is not to be kept without ceaseless vigilance. Only by guarding the truth itself can we guard the greatest of all our liberties-the right to proclaim the truth. On that liberty rests the destiny of millions.
Julius Elias, 1st Viscount Southwood
In studio films, everything has to be boxed in, everybody needs to know beforehand – this is comedy, this is sci-fi, this is drama – and what’s the point of independent film if you don’t get to experiment?

Guillermo del Toro
Cry down materialism all you will, surely one of the thoroughly satisfactory sensations of this world is to feel financially independent.
Cornelia Parker
Let’s stop big government energy mandates like cap-and-trade, and instead trust the American innovator to make us energy independent.
Marco Rubio
I respond to powerful women. I’m not intimidated by that, I like that, it’s not something I shy away from, so I don’t want women who are looking for me to take care of them. To me, that’s a turn-off. I respond to strong, powerful, independent women.
Mike Colter
Loyalty is an asset, independent and scarce, parceled out among different contestants for power. No ruling government or nonruling group enjoys absolute loyalty – no contestant can have the whole pie.
Yossi Shain
I love meeting fans. The people who are fans of my books are really smart and dedicated, because some independent comics are hard to get. I will drive all the way to Pittsburgh or Detroit to put it in their hands.
Brian Michael Bendis
Many of us have created lives that give very little support for experimentation. We believe that answers already exist out there, independent of us. What if we invested more time and attention to our own experimentation? We could focus our efforts on discovering solutions that work uniquely for us.
Margaret J. Wheatley
We are very proud of the fact that we have such a low level of anti-Semitism – such a low level of anti-Semitism in independent Ukraine, which started its life in 1991.
Volodymyr Zelensky

Henry David Thoreau
On a number of occasions, I have made it clear that Sinn Fein policy was to argue for the establishment of an independent, international truth commission.

John Ruskin
The issue ultimately involved is whether there is a source of truth higher than, and independent of, man; and the answer to the question is decisive for one’s view of the nature and destiny of man.

America needs to be able to be energy-independent, and the electric vehicle, the battery technology is one way of getting there.
Jennifer Granholm
Fashion is temporary; fashion is a race. What it’s doing is giving you something that you say, “This is the outer wrapping of me.” Style is something else. It’s not quantifiable. Fashion is about selling. Fashion is about what’s in. Style is independent of that; style is individual.
Annie Lennox
… he who has independent ideas is hated by the mass[es].
Shang Yang
I think the thing that I got most from working with Frank Zappa is that I was able to see someone who completely independent. The most beautiful thing about Frank was that he was completely in the moment and present and eternally creative.
Steve Vai
I’m a pretty serious Independent.
Tommy Franks
The child can only develop fully by means of experience in his environment. We call such experience ‘work’.
Maria Montessori
The gold standard makes the money’s purchasing power independent of the changing, ambitions and doctrines of political parties and pressure groups. This is not a defect of the gold standard; it is its main excellence.
Ludwig von Mises
I don’t call myself an ‘independent filmmaker’. Either a concept works within a studio system or it doesn’t. If it does then you should try to get a studio budget so that you can use all of the tools they have to get what you want. If it doesn’t then you look elsewhere, or make it yourself.
Andrew Neel
Today it is difficult to find leaders who are independent of the forces that have brought us our problems: The Congress, the bureaucracy, the lobbyists, big business, and big labor.
Ronald Reagan
Homeschoolers are the ultimate do-it-yourselfers. They are self-motivated and self-directed, independent-minded and creative. They are not content to turn their education of their children over to the government.
Nancy Pearcey
There is a kind of woman who is economically powerful, professionally powerful, who threatens a white male grip on power that has a long historic precedent in the country. Independent women living outside of marriage threaten all kinds of things about the way power is supposed to work.
Rebecca Traister
I mean, I made The Phantom, although The Phantom was, believe it or not, an independent film. It was just a very large, expensive independent film.
Gerard Butler
Insofar as the universities are free and independent, they will also be “subversive,” in the sense that dominant structures of power and their ideological support will be subjected to challenge and critique, a counterpart to attitudes that are fostered in the hard sciences wherever they are taken seriously.
Noam Chomsky
A fundamental concern for others in our individual and community lives would go a long way in making the world the better place we so passionately dreamt of.
Nelson Mandela
I moved with my mom to Los Angeles for her to pursue her acting career, and she got a job casting atmosphere in some independent films.
Thomas Ian Nicholas
I knew nothing about the independent film industry. I didn’t know much about the industry itself. All I knew was how to watch movies, how to enjoy them, how to hate them, how not to like them.
Michelle Rodriguez
I can’t afford back up vocalists; they’re so expensive. Because I’m independent – I’m not signed to a major label, which a lot of people don’t know, and it doesn’t matter anyway. I can’t just have an eight-piece band touring. One day – definitely. That’s like a goal.
Nick Murphy
The man of Self-realization knows a bliss that cannot be compared to anything in this world. His joy is independent of any object or sensory experience. It is an incomparable happiness that cannot be described in words. Such joy is known as sattvik-ananda.
Paramahansa Yogananda
‘Sexy’ is being independent, being confident and having fun.
Mollie King
I didn’t know there were at least as many terrible independent movies as there are big-budget ones. Like, every single year. And bad in a worse way, too. They’re just parodies of themselves sometimes.
Kyle Parker
I’m not prejudiced about what type of movies I’m in, what form they take or whether they’re studio or independent. I just want to make films that are going to be good.
Michael Pitt
I came out of independent film, that’s my roots.
Nicolas Cage
India has progressed to a stage where a divorcee status hardly matters. What matters is that you raise a positive, independent, well-behaved and intelligent child.
Karisma Kapoor
God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion… We have had thirteen States independent for eleven years. There has been one rebellion. That comes to one rebellion in a century and a half, for each State. What country before ever existed a century and a half without a rebellion.
Thomas Jefferson
People want to start their own business or become financially independent. But you don’t end up a successful entrepreneur unless you find a way to love the risk, the uncertainty, the repeated failures, and working insane hours on something you have no idea whether will be successful or not.
Mark Manson
A Black man should be more independent and depend on himself for his freedom and not to take it for granted that someone would lead him to it. The blacks are tired of standing at the touchlines to witness a game that they should be playing. They want to do things for themselves and all by themselves.
Steven Biko
Catholic school gave me the tools to reject the very religion they wanted me to have. They taught me how to think for myself and to be independent.
George Carlin
All of my friends are independent in thought, that’s important.
Aeriel Miranda
An independent and free media is essential to ensure democracy.
Warren Christopher
I worked on three independent movies in close succession and I really learned from those directors how to stay on budget, make your days, get it done, keep everyone happy, which is a huge thing in a movie, and to steer the ship.
Michael Urie
I’ve done a lot of independent films that not a lot of people have seen.
Katia Winter
The idea of being a feminist-so many women have come to this idea of it being anti-male and not able to connect with the opposite sex-but what feminism is about is equality and human rights. For me that is just an essential part of my identity. I hope [Girls] contributes to a continuance of feminist dialogue
Lena Dunham
The female characters in my books tend to be independent, frisky, spunky, witty, emotionally strong, erotically daring, spiritually oriented and intellectually generous; in short, the kind of women I admire in real life.
Tom Robbins
I find beauty in a very independent state. It lives quietly. It’s there to be discovered.
Annie Lennox
My vision is to have an independent Kosovo, democratic, with a politically tolerant society and with a solid economy, integrated into the EU, the NATO and to continue with our good relations with the USA.
Ibrahim Rugova
I think it’s difficult for members of Congress to be as independent as they need to be in their voting.
Jim Moran
My children are grown now, they are more independent.
Vanessa Paradis
Tom DeLay fears independent thinkers and fighters. I am both.
Martin Frost
I’m always struck by the kids who turn up in New York and LA, and places in between. Chicago. Wanting to do theater, wanting to do independent film. Wanting to break into television or radio.
Frank Rich
I’m the most independent and conservative Democrat in New York State.
Brian Higgins
If necessary, I cry. I pray. I rest. I’m fortunate to have quite a few strong, independent, loving, and unbiased women in my life that I can talk things through with.
Grace Gealey
Yes it was we, are a few years back parted from our record company and took the album that we were making with them and released it independently in the United States had a number one Independent debut in the United States.
Isaac Hanson
Merciless criticism and independent thinking are the two necessary traits of revolutionary thinking.
Bhagat Singh
Java isn’t platform independent; it is a platform
Bjarne Stroustrup
If there is anything more dangerous to the life of the mind than having no independent commitment to ideas, it is having an excess of commitment to some special and constricting idea.
Richard Hofstadter
I made these Sierra trips, carrying only a sackful of bread with a little tea and sugar, and was thus independent and free.
John Muir
In the United States we have, in effect, two governments … We have the duly constituted Government … Then we have an independent, uncontrolled and uncoordinated government in the Federal Reserve System, operating the money powers which are reserved to Congress by the Constitution.
Wright Patman
We in the independent sector more than anybody need Netflix, because they care about what we do.
Harvey Weinstein
The excitement about independent filmmaking is that they’re a little more open to taking chances. The studios are a little more careful, as far as who they choose for their film and what they’re known for and staying in the genre because they know what works.
Malin Akerman
An independent Ireland would see its own independence in jeopardy the moment it saw the independence of Britain seriously threatened. Mutual self-interest would make the peoples of these two islands, if both independent, the closest possible allies in a moment of real national danger to either.
Eamon de Valera
Going to LSU was the right move for me. It taught me to be independent.
Seimone Augustus
Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got.
Janis Joplin
The rise of video on demand will make it possible for small movies to earn back costs via $9.95 24-hour rentals and for people in cities without independent cinemas to see the kind of movies they never have before. That’s great – but on the other hand, that’s TV.
David Edelstein
Democrats have laid out a program that, if adopted, would make us independent of Middle Eastern oil in ten years, and create a new economy especially for those in rural America. Our program invests in clean energy alternatives and provides energy assistance for those in need.
Jim Clyburn
Those of us who shout the loudest about Americanism, are all too frequently those who . . . ignore some of the basic principles of Americanism-the right to criticize, the right to hold unpopular beliefs, the right to protest, the right of independent thought.
Margaret Chase Smith
The beauty of New York is unintentional; it arose independent of human design, like a stalagmite cavern.
Milan Kundera
No idea is conceived in our mind independent of our five senses [i.e., no idea is divinely inspired].
Albert Einstein
I have not lived as a woman. I have lived as a man. I’ve just done what I damn well wanted to, and I’ve made enough money to support myself, and ain’t afraid of being alone
Katharine Hepburn
I don’t want you to think that I’m being willfully obtuse, but I’ve never really grasped how point of view could be regarded as a matter of choice independent of story. Point of view is intimately interwoven into the story that you want to tell – it is an aspect of it.
Zia Haider Rahman
For new bands, I think a major label is the safest place to be. Independent labels are the ones getting away with murder. A lot of them are hobbyists who rip-off young bands, taking advantage of people who would never get signed to a major.
Jack White
People are looking for a leader independent of powerful, wealthy special interests that always push to the front of the line.
Martin O’Malley
In my stories, I think, as I’ve gotten older, the characters have become stronger and more independent, and more capable of making unconventional decisions.
Emily Giffin
To be poor and independent is very nearly an impossibility.
William Cobbett
I think it’s very refreshing to see women in cinema having strength and their own independent storyline.
Haley Bennett
Agriculture is at the same time the most tranquil, healthy, and independent occupation.
Thomas Jefferson
As two proud and independent peoples, there is much that distinguishes us one from the other, but there is also much that we share: a vast continent, with its common hardships and uncommon duties; generations of mutual respect and support, and an abiding friendship that grows ever stronger.
Ronald Reagan
The work that I have been doing on television has been important to me because I have had the opportunity to portray very strong, intelligent women. It has been such a privilege to depict a woman that is independent, unapologetic, and resilient on both shows.
Amanda Schull
A person’s worth is quite independent of their usefulness to society.
Kjell Magne Bondevik
I love the life I live. The Lord blessed me to be independent. I am independent.
Charles Evers
That is why the Aethenian law makers so decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. I am asking your help in the tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people. Confident that with your help, man will be what he was born to be, free and independent.
John F. Kennedy
I believe employers should be aware that employees who earn under $10 an hour cannot lead an independent life. But I do not believe that government should dictate wages. We have seen this fail in Socialist and Communist countries. It will do irreparable harm.
Richard Riordan
Whereas money is a means to an end for a filmmaker, to the corporate mind money is the end. Right now, I think independent film is very confused, because there’s excess pressure in the marketplace for entertainment to pay off.
Robert Redford
One’s own independent judgment is the means by which one must choose one’s actions, but it is not a moral criterion nor a moral validation; only reference to a demonstrable principle can validate one’s choices.
Ayn Rand
I think men are afraid to be with a successful woman, because we are terribly strong, we know what we want and we are not fragile enough.
Shirley Bassey
Im a registered independent with a lot of libertarian leanings.
Tom Selleck
Paris is a woman but London is an independent man puffing his pipe in a pub.
Jack Kerouac
We would never accept a prime minister saying, ‘Well, maybe I’ll intervene and use a trade issue as a link to an independent investigation into criminal activity.’
Andrew Scheer
I like being independent. I don’t think that marriage means you’re not independent, but right now I’m very comfortable, and I’m probably the happiest I’ve ever been. I feel solid. I feel safe.
Sandra Lee
A free man – is a man who is free internally. As all other people, externally he or she depends on society. Internally he or she is independent. A society can become liberated externally – from oppression, but it can become free only when the majority of people are free internally.
Simon Soloveychik
In the end, does it really matter if newspapers physically disappear? Probably not: the world is always changing. But does it matter if organisations independent enough and rich enough to employ journalists to do their job disappear? Yes, that matters hugely; it affects the whole of life and society.
Andrew Marr
I’m not a member of a political party, and I feel very, very comfortable being independent. Even if I weren’t a journalist – if I were doing whatever – I would be an independent.
Jake Tapper
I want to do more independent film. I’m blessed to be working on really quality episodic television, which to me actually feels like a sort of 13-hour film.
Maggie Siff
Nature has made all her truths independent of one another. Our art makes one dependent on the other. But this is not natural. Each keeps its own place.
Blaise Pascal
There are perfectly good independent small nations.
David Attenborough
The world’s greatest city – New York City – deserves a government that works for all New Yorkers. That starts with a mayor who is independent from party bosses and special interests, who isn’t afraid to be honest with the people, and who is focused on the issues New Yorkers care about most.
Sal Albanese
The wealth and prosperity of the country are only the comeliness of the body, the fullness of the flesh and fat; but the spirit is independent of them; it requires only muscle, bone and nerve for the true exercise of its functions. We cannot lose our liberty, because we cannot cease to think.
Humphry Davy
There are always at least five good films at the end of the year to get nominated, but generally speaking nowadays, it’s more of the independent films that are recognized.
Mark Rydell
I signal with an independent label, Continuum. After that I put out a totally independent record, sold fourteen thousand of them from my basement, bought a house, started raising my kid, made a decent living.
Kid Rock
The vast majority of our film producers are independent producers who live hand to mouth trying to get projects made that they love. They are not owners, they’re not money people, and in fact, those who just have the money don’t always get a producer credit.
Marshall Herskovitz
Independent films in this country are in the same position. Miramax and Fine Line are not independent – they’re with Disney! Come on. Or they’re with Warner Brothers. They’re all with somebody.
Dennis Hopper
The simplest and most basic meaning of the symbol of the Goddess is the acknowledgment of the legitimacy of female power as a beneficent and independent power.
Carol P. Christ
“This – is now my way – where is yours”? Thus did I answer those who asked me “the way”. For the way – it does not exist!
Friedrich Nietzsche
Mobs may assemble, calumny may defame, but the work of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent.
Joseph Smith, Jr.
No, I think it taught me to be independent and never expect a handout and never wait for anybody to hand you anything in any aspect of my life.

Jackson Browne
Invention is totally independent of the will.
Benjamin Haydon
23andme is very independent and committed to focusing on transparency.
Anne Wojcicki
‘American Dream’ is a small little movie made for under a million dollars. Totally independent feature.
Janusz Kaminski
Rwanda, which is one of the younger independent states in Africa, must be regarded as a model of how great human trauma can be transformed to commence true reconstruction of people. Human trauma can lead to stunted growth and mass withdrawal.
Wole Soyinka
This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.
Elmer Davis
I graduated in ’91, so the ’90s for me were very much the first years out of school, so I can’t really look at that decade as independent of my own experience of my 20s, really.
Noah Baumbach
I’m trying to make enough money where I can be financially independent and be able to go and just pursue that thing that everybody really needs, just pursue my family and the cause of my family.
Terrence Howard
I’ve seen people who don’t have deals get features from people that labels can’t even get features from, because you gotta show face and be in-tune with these guys who still have that independent mind set as far how you hustle yourself. Because they only really care at the end of the day about the dollas.
Kid Ink
That’s what I’m doing. I’m trying to follow what I want to do as my dream. How do I become independent from everybody else?
Dennis Banks
Concentration of wealth and power has been built upon other people’s money, other people’s business, other people’s labor. Under this concentration, independent business has been a menace to American society.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
I was more independent than any farmer in Concord, for I was not anchored to a house or farm, but could follow the bent of my genius, which is a very crooked one, every moment.
Henry David Thoreau
With the spread of conformity and image-driven superficiality, the allure of an individuated woman in full possession of herself and her powers will prove irresistible. We were born for plenitude and inner fulfillment.
Betsy Prioleau
My films are personal-voice-driven films about human characters and the place we live. Technically, I’m an independent filmmaker.
Barry Jenkins
The basis, the corner-stone of this Government, was the perfect equality of the free, sovereign, and independent States which made it.
Robert Toombs
The independent role of morphology in mate choice is revealed by the rare instances where the usual association between song and morphology is disrupted.
Peter R. Grant
I grew up with just my mom. She and I were like best friends. She’s a very independent woman and I admire that about her. In my life, I’ve tried to be like that. To be okay with being on my own and being independent.
Emma Roberts
I just felt like I had to create a life for myself where I was more independent.
Karen Allen
Sexy is being independent, being confident and having fun.
Mollie King
Man can be an atheist only in theory, not in practice, because the universe is too frightening and too chaotic to be too independent!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
I want to be an independent woman who falls in love, finds a great partner for her lifetime, has kids and kind of does it all. I’d like to have it all.
Jennifer Love Hewitt
My tenure in the Senate was really as an independent and whichever, regardless of party label.
Arlen Specter
We have two choices: One is to continue to see a poor, ill, crying Africa, carrying guns, that depends on other people forever, or to promote an Africa which is confident, peaceful, independent, but cognizant of its huge problems and great values at the same time.
Zeresenay Alemseged
Grosvenor and Burke suggest that continually, though silently, a school building tells students who they are and how they should think about the world. It can help to manufacture rote obedience or independent activity; it can create high self-confidence or low self-esteem.
Alison Lurie
You are on your own in a big world, in which you are one of many nations, some small, some medium sized, some large. You are nobody’s boss and nobody is your boss.
Eric Williams
You know, honestly, acting in film is remarkably independent. You’re doing your thing and someone else is doing their thing.
Josh Hartnett
The lifeblood of my career has been independent film.
James Woods
I’m a very independent person, I love being alone, writing and doing music and stuff.
Julie Delpy
I’m single. I’m independent. And I’m dating. I think if you’re honest that you’re dating, there’s nothing wrong with that.
Jerry Hall
I think you’re intelligent and charming, and that you’re a person with a kind heart. I know that when you want to, you can look more beautiful than anyone I’ve ever met. You’re independent, you’ve got a good sense of humor, and you show surprising patience with children.” -Alex
Nicholas Sparks
Someone has said that it requires less mental effort to condemn than to think.
Emma Goldman
I’ve become a real housewife. Terry doesn’t mind me working, in fact he loves me to be independent. But I only get an allowance of $15 dollars a week, which doesn’t go very far.
Marta Kristen
Independent inquiry is needed in your search for truth, not dependence on anyone else’s view or a mere book.
Bruce Lee
The only place that I’d be worried about being typecast is the independent film world.
Michelle Rodriguez
There is little place in the political scheme of things for an independent, creative personality, for a fighter. Anyone who takes that role must pay a price.
Shirley Chisholm
Henceforth space by itself, and time by itself, are doomed to fade away into mere shadows, and only a kind of union of the two will preserve an independent reality.
Hermann Minkowski
Saving petrol is saving India’s money. This is a sense of patriotism. The country can be energy-independent by energy conservation. I appeal to the other ministers also to do this.
Veerappa Moily
When shopping was still connected to the street it was also an intensification and articulation of the street. Now it has become utterly independent – contained, controlled, surveyed.
Rem Koolhaas
In the early ’90s, when those little art films started coming out, we were introduced to Quentin Tarantino and guys like that, and independent cinema was something that everyone wanted to be a part of.
Ron Perlman
If I had my choice, I would do the same little independent films, but they would have $100 million budgets, so I could get paid a fortune and hang out in a huge trailer.
William H. Macy
For newspapers to continue to play an important role in civic engagement, they need more access to capital. Their decline has created a real threat to independent reporting at the state and local level.
Ajit Pai
As the Republicans run to the crazy Tea Party right, they leave behind the huge mass of genuinely moderate and independent Americans that make up the majority of voters. The ones that used to consider themselves now-extinct moderate Republicans. They’re up for grabs. And the Democrats have to grab them!
Jennifer Granholm
What other people think of me is none of my business. One of the highest places you can get to is being independent of the good opinions of other people.
Wayne Dyer
While there are still imperialist aggressors, the state that has no defense power of its own to protect its sovereignty against the internal and external enemies is, in fact, not a fully independent and sovereign state.
Kim Il-sung
Other women who flew were women of independent means. But I had to do something with it.
Nancy Bird Walton
My wife’s hip, beautiful and independent and never jealous.
Richard Lewis
I am fiercely independent and I probably wouldn’t be if it wasn’t for the way in which I was brought up
Tracey Emin
I am a hybrid. I do independent films and also do Hollywood films – I love them both.
Spike Lee
The corporation is not an independent “person” with its own rights, needs, and desires that regulators must respect. It is a state created tool for advancing social and economic policy.
Joel Bakan
Albania is going through a deep crisis because it lacks the rule of law, an independent judiciary, and freedom of the media. I don’t think if we stop protesting the problem is solved.
Edi Rama
One cannot escape the feeling that these mathematical formulas have an independent existence and an intelligence of their own, that they are wiser than we are, wiser even than their discoverers.
Heinrich Hertz
A film like ‘Kai Po Che!’, ‘Queen’, ‘Behen Hogi Teri’ and ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ are not really independent films.
Rajkummar Rao
With directing, you always have three or four things constantly on the go. It’s a tough industry and a tough time, particularly if you’re doing things a little outside the box or independent features.
Stuart Townsend
Our parents have always encouraged us to be independent and dream big.
Jenna Bush
A lot of people get stuck, like, “Oh, if it’s made by a studio, it can’t be independent.” Often they link it to the source of financing, or how it’s distributed, but I don’t really know how you can. A filmmaker will take his money from anywhere. It doesn’t matter.
Alexander Payne
He held to the idea that the Jewish people, so often victims of injustice and persecution, should have a state where they could be independent and free. Think good or ill of Arik Sharon, agree or disagree with him, but that calling – a noble one – was plain and unalloyed.
Ariel Sharon
By leveraging the Unicode Standard, Progress Software is enabling its ASPs (Application Service Providers) and ISVs (Independent Software Vendors) to quickly and efficiently deliver their business applications to the Internet and to users around the world.
Joseph Alsop
If we think of the field as being removed, there is no ‘space’
which remains, since space does not have an independent
Albert Einstein
I tend to get comfortable with the dialogue and find out who the person is in the script and try to hit that. People are sort of independent of their occupations and their pastimes. You don’t play a politician or a fireman or a cowboy – you just play a person.
Billy Campbell
A reality completely independent of the spirit that conceives it, sees it, or feels it, is an impossibility. A world so external as that, even if it existed, would be forever inaccessible to us.
Henri Poincare
You have to remember that in a state like Florida, independent voters will decide the election.
Jeb Bush
When you’re making an independent film and you care about it so much you do all the prep work beforehand.
Zoe Kravitz
Meaningful innovation can be an important catalyst in encouraging resilience in seniors, keeping them independent and engaged.
Frans van Houten
Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the dangers of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of ‘crackpot’ than the stigma of conformity. And on issues that seem important to you, stand up and be counted at any cost.
Chauncey Depew
The essence of neo-colonialism is that the State which is subject to it is, in theory, independent and has all the outward trappings of international sovereignty. In reality its economic system and thus its political policy is directed from outside.
Kwame Nkrumah
[Donald Trump] is his own man – distinctly American. And where else would an independent spirit like his find a following than in the land of the free and the home of the brave?
Mike Pence
Independent film is such a huge deal in the UK. There aren’t many big budget studio movies that get greenlit at all. The indie film industy is a great opportunity that I’m trying to seize.
Aml Ameen
Sarah Michelle Gellar’s made some really good choices. She’s had some bad breaks. She goes with the independent, interesting young filmmakers and then they get slammed, like ‘Southland Tales.’ I’m proud of what she’s trying to do. It’s hard.
Joss Whedon
My heart, independent of my logic, had reserved a place for my tormentor and my solace.
CJ Roberts
Mostly, the people in “the room” are paid lobbyists representing interests that could afford to pay them. No wonder policy isn’t being made that helps smaller, independent musicians or those unaffiliated with a larger entity.
Erin McKeown
Even though I didn’t know I was applying for the job, I have somehow become the spokesperson for independent book stores.
Ann Patchett
Often girls feel deeply cared about as small children but then find as we develop willpower and independent thought that the world stops affirming us, that we are seen as unlovable.
Bell Hooks
I do not want to see any of the people cringing supplicants for the favor of the Government, when they should all be independent masters of their own destiny.
Calvin Coolidge
I’m a registered Independent. But my brother says it’s obvious that I’m a Republican sympathizer. Once I get in the voting booth, it doesn’t matter.
Stephen Baldwin
People in independent film have a passion; they’re not in it for the money.
Gena Rowlands
You must be independent and able to do for yourself. Then you do not have to marry a rich man; you can marry a poor one. And if it is wrong, you can go.
Zsa Zsa Gabor
I think every American has a role in saving this country. Whether you’re Democrat, Republican, independent, it doesn’t matter. We all know the country’s in trouble. We may disagree on how to solve it, but we all know the country’s in trouble.
Glenn Beck
When you’re single, you’re very independent. Very independent women raised me. We didn’t have a lot of male figures as the head of our household, so I got, and took on, a lot of that strong spirit from the matriarchs in my family.
Tichina Arnold
You have more independent eyes scrutinizing the decision-making and financial statements of companies.
Steve Odland
As a woman I have no country. As a woman my country is the whole world.
Virginia Woolf
I do not wish women to have power over men; but over themselves.
Mary Wollstonecraft
I want to say to you who think women cannot succeed, we have brought the government of England to this position, that it has to face this alternative: either women are to be killed or women are to have the vote.
Emmeline Pankhurst
I simply want tomorrow to be better than today. I want Palestine to be independent and sovereign… Do not let the olive branch fall from my hand.
Mahmoud Abbas
The difference with a major label and independent is mainly resources. That’s the difference that I feel sometimes where I as an artist would have to be more creative and more patient.
There’s plenty of great independent films to do, but you can’t support yourself making independent film as an actress.
Gaby Hoffmann
I can tell from the tone of his voice and the thought processes in getting to where he’s at that there’s no point in talking to him further. He wanted to make that decision independent of all other factors and we respect that. [on Damien Martyn retiring
Ian Chappell
Even if only one guerilla cub survives the prolonged struggle, I am confident that he will raise the flag of Palestine overJerusalem… Jerusalem is destined to be the eternal capital of our sovereign, independent Palestinian state under the P.L.O. leadership.
Yasser Arafat
I have a daughter who’s 11 years old. Maybe she’ll grow up independent and really really heavy and become a movie star and she’ll play me in my life story.
Patti Smith
I’m always looking for interesting stories, and I feel in independent film there’s more opportunity.
Cobie Smulders
Jamie Kilstein and Allison Kilkenny have created an important political radio show that balances humor and unreported news. At a time when media conglomerates dominate the airwaves, independent mediaВ like Citizen Radio is vital to national discourse.
Noam Chomsky
My mother was determined to make us independent. When I was four years old, she stopped the car a few miles from our house and made me find my own way home across the fields. I got hopelessly lost.
Richard Branson
I was brought up by my mum and my sister. I’ve always been around independent women; I like that. Anybody who’s a fake I don’t like and I don’t talk to.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson
One lives for the day, one lives very fast, one lives very irresponsibly: precisely this is called “freedom.”
Friedrich Nietzsche
I think that there’s a lot more freedom in the low budget, the independent films where, unfortunately, you don’t have the money, necessarily, to get the orchestras in there to play a lot of stuff. But, you have a lot more freedom, very often.
Danny Elfman
It’s only when journalists understand the role they play in this propaganda, it’s only when they realize they can’t be both independent, honest journalists and agents of power, that things will begin to change.
John Pilger
If you are looking for smart judging based on merit, skip the Academy Awards next year and pay attention to the Independent Spirit Awards.
Annie Proulx
I’d just as soon do a big-budget movie as an independent one.
Mickey Rourke
I’m definitely an independent person, and I don’t need boyfriends all the time.
Amanda Hearst
People are very independent. And what I have seen with all the unions is that you have members who, regardless of who their union choose to endorse, ultimately want to exercise their own judgment and want to vote for the person they feel is best.
Lucy Flores
They seem much rarer now, those auteur films that come out of a director’s imagination and are elliptical and hermetic. All those films that got me into independent cinema when I was watching it seem thin on the ground.
Toby Jones
Really, then, our problem is not weakness, but independence! And in covenant, you die to independent living.
Kay Arthur
Let the Black man go – stop lying to us that you love us. And if you really love us, let us go and give us some of this territory that we can call our own; and give us the billions of dollars that we can get started with land and with tractors and the things that will make us an independent nation.
Louis Farrakhan
We call my son’s role in the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy Sean’s little independent movie.
Patty Duke
No country without an atom bomb could properly consider itself independent.
Charles de Gaulle
I’m quite an independent person, and I had to be. As a boy and growing into a young man I had to look out for myself. And now I’m very family-oriented. It’s a big priority in my life.
Hugh Jackman
I’m also politically independent so I’m not a fan of either the Democrats in Congress or the Republicans in Congress.
Kal Penn
Extremists often derive their inspiration from literal interpretations of texts that should rightly be read not as Associated Press reports from the ancient world, but as theological and literary enterprises requiring independent intellectual assessment.
Jon Meacham
Cultivators of the earth are the most valuable citizens. They are the most vigorous, the most independent, the most virtuous and they are tied to their country and wedded to its liberty and interests by the most lasting bands.
Thomas Jefferson
Each State, in ratifying the Constitution, is considered as a sovereign body, independent of all others, and only to be bound by its own voluntary act. In this relation, then, the new Constitution will, if established, be a FEDERAL, and not a NATIONAL constitution.
James Madison
This softwood lumber dispute is a very old dispute that almost follows a dynamic entirely of its own that is actually somewhat independent of the issues of the issues that are bothering the president Donald Trump on NAFTA.
Donald Trump
For me, whether or not a film has some kind of massive budget or is an independent film, or however it’s getting made, it’s always about the filmmaker and, hopefully, being a vessel for the filmmaker’s vision. That’s what really attracts me to projects.
Bryce Dallas Howard
A lot of times, you do independent films for passion because you may even lose money doing one, but it doesn’t matter.
Sung Kang
I believe that every people and every nation has the right to be free and independent.
David Duke
The main activity of programming is not the origination of new independent programs, but in the integration, modification, and explanation of existing ones.
Terry Winograd
In the 19th century, when Muslims were looking at Europe as an example, they were independent; they were more self-confident. In the early 20th century, with the fall of the Ottoman Empire, the whole Middle East was colonized. And when you have colonization, what do you have? You have anti-colonization.
Mustafa Akyol
I financed and made my own films from the start. My path has been autonomous and independent, so I don’t have any horror stories about glass ceilings and expectations and tense studio meetings.
Ava DuVernay
I started to make my own films, however small and however independent they were, from the beginning. And so, even though I was nobody, I was always the master of my own work.
Mira Nair
Industry suffers from the managerial dogma that for the sake of stability and continuity, the company should be independent of the competence of individual employees.
Edsger Dijkstra
I went to the local schools, the local state primary school, and then to the local grammar school. A secondary school, which technically was an independent school, it was not part of the state educational system.
John Hume
You have the massive world that was created by Marvel, and then you have these very intimate actors around you. There was as much character work on this as there would be on a little independent film. So, I felt very fortunate in that sense.
Chris Hemsworth
I can never be what I ought to be untilВ you are what you ought to be.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
I never wanted an independent Bosnia. I wanted Yugoslavia. That is my country.
Emir Kusturica
If we really want children to grow into independent and resourceful adults, we should stop pouring their milk as soon as they have learned to pour it themselves and stop fastening their buttons as soon as they can fasten them without help.
Maria Montessori
Big-government liberals don’t like people with a sense of independence because independent people don’t need big government.
Neal Boortz
The way of Zen is to become independent and strong. Don’t rely on others for perceptions of life and truth. Do it individually. Go to a teacher of Zen to learn how to do that, not to get answers for individual life situations.
Frederick Lenz
I have learned that neither kindness or cruelty by themselves, or independent of each other, create any effect beyond themselves.
Edward Albee
The movie industry has collapsed into two types of film – the $100 million blockbuster or the small independent film of $1 million or less – and the huge middle ground has been lost. Cable is filling that void.
Jonathan LaPaglia
I have a lot of sides to my personality and what you see on ‘The Hills’ is a strong, independent woman, which I am. But I also have a sensitive side that I don’t show too much.
Kristin Cavallari
This attack has made it clear, beyond all doubt, that the international Communist movement is willing to use armed invasion to conquer independent nations. An act of aggression such as this creates a very real danger to the security of all free nations.
Harry S. Truman
Amy Rapp, my producing partner, and I are drawn to character-driven material. We’re developing and producing movies and TV, fiction and non-fiction, studio and independent, broadcast and cable, theatre, and web so our slate is really diverse.
Meredith Vieira
Texans are by nature independent people.
Joe Barton
Corruption is a huge problem and the poor and the powerless are often its most egregious victims. But it is not an accident that the most effective bureaucracies in the world rely much more on internal controls rather than on independent ombudsmen.
Abhijit Banerjee
It’s a terrible thing that we cannot really trust the FDA or NCI (National Cancer Institute). We need, therefore, an independent scientific investigation.
Paul Douglas
Be spiritually independent enough that your relationship with the Savior doesn’t depend on your circumstances or on what other people say and do. Have the spiritual independence to be a Mormon–the best Mormon you can–in your own way. Not the bishop’s way. Not the Relief Society president’s way. Your way.
Chieko N. Okazaki
Tennis is not like other sports where the coach is hired by an independent entity, and that makes a huge difference in the dynamic.
Ivan Lendl
It is surprising to notice that even from the earliest age, man finds the greatest satisfaction in feeling independent. The exalting feeling of being sufficient to oneself comes as a revelation.
Maria Montessori
Even if you’re independent, I think you get lonely.
Mia Wasikowska
I was a Democrat before I was a Republican before I became an independent and I never changed my principles.
Michael Bloomberg
My best business decision was to be independent as a musician and artist. My worst was compromising on certain aspects of a deal for the sake of other members of my group when I shouldn’t have, because I was right in the end.
Ziggy Marley
Acting never was about the money for me… Maybe in 10 years, I’ll be able to appreciate the fact that I am financially stable and independent and I don’t have to make bad choices. I can be very picky.
Emma Watson
Free market ideology – does anyone know where it first comes from? It comes from medieval Islam, and specifically, Shari’a. Because Shari’a provided this commercial law that is independent from the state.
David Graeber
Swapping out the nine-to-five for a more agile, independent working life brings with it one other huge benefit – a channel for self-actualization.
Leah Busque
Independent minded girls that are naked sounds like a great start to something.
Joshua Homme
When the object is perceived as particular and unique and not merely the member of a family, when it appears independent of any general notion and detached from the sanity of a cause, isolated and inexplicable in the light of ignorance, then and only then may it be a source of enchantment.
Samuel Beckett
I rarely return to characters. My characters, at least most of them, are much more a part of that superorganism that is the story than separate and independent creatures.
Etgar Keret
To look for a continuation in harmony between a number of independent unconnected sovereignties, situated in the same neighborhood, would be to disregard the uniform course of human events, and to set at defiance the accumulated experience of ages.
Alexander Hamilton
The largest bloc of voters now has divorced the Democratic and Republican parties, which are now minority parties and the plurality of voters now are independent. They’re looking for something else.
Jill Stein
It is wise to persuade people to do things and make them think it was their own idea.
Nelson Mandela
A marriage of two independent and equally irritable intelligences seems to me reckless to the point of insanity.
Dorothy L. Sayers
To be honest, you have to do a big Hollywood film to get enough money to do a good independent film!
Sean Bean
I’m totally independent. I don’t bear any responsibility to any system.
Ai Weiwei
My grandfather, as I said, was industrious. He’d had a variety of jobs and decided sometime in the 1940s that he would never work for anyone. He was also a very independent man.
Clarence Thomas
We will not regard any great power as necessarily right in a given dispute unless we are convinced of this, yet at the same time we will not view the great powers with perennial suspicion merely on account of their size, their wealth, or their nuclear potential. We will be friends of all, satellites of none.
Errol Barrow
We have got to nurture the spirit of independent journalism in this country, or we’ll not save capitalism from its own excesses, and we’ll not save democracy from its own inertia.
Bill Moyers
When you are making an independent film, money is never an issue.
Salman Rushdie
The message of Islam asks you to be intellectually, spiritually, socially, and politically independent
Tariq Ramadan
I mean, I like to think of myself as being strong and independent, but I definitely wasn’t like that at 14
Alison Lohman
I developed an interest in supporting independent journalists in a way that leverages their work to the greatest extent possible, all in support of the public interest.
Pierre Omidyar
I cannot overemphasise the value we place on a free, independent and outspoken press
Nelson Mandela
This is partly a function of approval ratings. People pay attention [to polls] and start saying, ‘Lets take a more independent tack.’ It is frankly self-interest, self-preservation.
John Thune
But that so many scholars are barbarians does not much matter so long as a few of them are ready to help with their specialized knowledge the few independent thinkers, that is to say the poets, who try to to keep civilization alive.
Robert Graves
I watch many, many, many independent films every year that you see once in a film festival and they’re never heard of ever again. Many of them are very, very good.
Karen Allen
This House cannot function without an open, accountable, and independent ethics process; and the molestation of that process by the majority is an abuse of power that cannot stand.
Louise Slaughter
I declare to you that woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself, and there I take my stand.
Susan B. Anthony
I prefer to work for my country in a free and independent way. I was born free, and I want to die free. I am always suspicious of ideology. Instead, I respect men with ideas.
Andrea Bocelli
To act in an independent manner, you must begin to initiate action that you want to occur physically by creating it in your own being. This is done by combining belief, emotion and imagination, and forming them into a mental picture of the desired physical result.
Time has no independent existence apart from the order of events by which we measure it.
Albert Einstein
Israel has to accommodate the Palestinian demands and aspirations for ending occupation and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state. That is the only answer. The Israeli aggression on Gaza does not bring peace to Israel. We know that. We want end of occupation.
Benjamin Netanyahu
I’ve always wanted to be independent and answer for myself. That probably is the part of me I would class to be feminist. I’d like to have children; marriage I have a bit of an issue with.
Kelly Brook
I’m in a position where I’m being continually knocked back for the kind of independent films I want to be in because people don’t know who I am.
Rufus Sewell
The point I am making is that in the more primitive forms of society the individual is merely a unit; in more developed forms of society he is an independent personality.
Herbert Read
I know that I have raised my sons to be big, strong, independent men who love God, themselves and care for others. I have to learn to let them have space and learn without me.
Kim Alexis
I’m a very independent woman.
Faith Hill
With the right person in place, a very distressing chapter in the Justice Department’s history can be closed and the process of restoring its credibility as a strong and independent department can begin.
Dianne Feinstein
I did four independent films during the break between ‘Twilight’ and ‘New Moon.’ I haven’t even really had time to sit back and process it all. But when you do finally sit back and think about it, it’s incredible.
Ashley Greene
I’m very independent, creatively, always trying to push myself – and I think that comes from my mother.
Felicity Jones
My philosophy is to make movies with the biggest possible budget that will allow it to be made in an independent fashion.
M. Night Shyamalan
I think independent movies are actually very challenging right now, because it was this huge scene and it was great for a few years. Then, it was totally co-opted by the studios. Now, it’s become very corporate, the independent scene.
Bob Odenkirk
The stronger the culture, the less corporate process a company needs. When the culture is strong, you can trust everyone to do the right thing. People can be independent and autonomous. They can be entrepreneurial.
Brian Chesky
I don’t think American independent films have ever really been particularly experimental, except for the original guys from the ’60s who were huge influences, like Stan Brakhage, Robert Breer, and Stan van der Beek. They were the true independents.
Gus Van Sant
‘Ouch’ is not independent of social training. One has only to prick a foreigner to appreciate that it is an English word.
Willard Van Orman Quine
He [Tony Blair] was always ambivalent about the [Rupert] Murdoch papers. But he gave other papers the chance to believe it was just about ‘The Independent.’ And that was wrong.
Alastair Campbell
Except when he has regressive tendencies, the child’s nature is to aim directly and energetically at functional independence.
Maria Montessori
For the first six years of my career I was independent. I got on to a major and did my thing there. I had platinum and gold records and all that.
I’m trying to make enough money where I can be financially independent and be able to go and just pursue that thing that everybody really needs, just pursue my family and the cause of my family
Terrence Howard
Apparently I work for free, look at some of the independent films I’ve done.
Patrick Warburton
You need to learn independence. You have to be independent – it builds character.
Mike Tyson
I still have auditions for independent films. I’ve been still working.
Creed Bratton
I get a lot of independent films from people who are starting out.
Loretta Devine
The first and the most important thing is to know that life is one and immortal. Only the forms, countless in number, are transient and brittle. The life everlasting is independent of any form but manifests itself in all forms. Life then does not die… but the forms are dissolved.
Sri Aurobindo
People are hungering for property — for a secure, permanent and independent link with spaceship earth that ownership represents and which only ownership can protect or defend. It is humiliating to possess nothing, to own nothing, and hence to produce nothing and to count for nothing.
Louis O. Kelso
There is no force inherent in living matter, no vital force independent of and differing from the cosmic forces; the energy which living matter gives off is counterbalanced by the energy which it receives.
William Thomas Councilman
Independent self-reliant people would be a counterproductive anachronism in the collective society of the future where people will be defined by their associations.
John Dewey
I am very much in favor of women’s rights, being a woman myself, and I support intelligent, successful, independent working women.
Gal Gadot
For more than 220 years – from the 1620s to the 1840s – most American schooling was independent of government control, subsidy, and influence. From this educational freedom the American Republic was born.
Marshall Fritz
I don’t think people in Hawaii like negative ads, whether it’s done by an independent group or whether it’s done by the campaign itself.
Colleen Hanabusa
I try to be as independent as possible.
Dries van Noten
I would prefer to be a citizen of an independent country rather than Emperor of an enslaved one.
Bao Dai
When you work on big commercial movies, of course there’s more money involved and you can still do some good work. But with an independent, you get films that are really close to the writers’ and directors’ heart. Somehow it becomes a little deeper. A little more meat and not as much flash.
Dennis Haysbert
I didn’t have a lot of independent film connections. It really took until the digital film revolution came along that I realized that I could do it myself.
Harry Shearer
Whenever a person strives, by the help of dialectic, to start in pursuit of every reality by a simple process of reason, independent of all sensuous information – never flinching, until by an act of the pure intelligence he has grasped the real nature of good – he arrives at the very end of the intellectual world.
So far no one had had enough courage and intelligence to reveal me to my dear Germans. My problems are new, my psychological horizon frighteningly comprehensive, my language bold and clear; there may well be no books written in German which are richer in ideas and more independent than mine.
Friedrich Nietzsche
The independent films are really where I kind of come from and where I feel comfortable. It’s never been about the blockbusters and making a huge tonne of money. It’s always been about wanting to do projects about the things that I think are important to be out there.
Mia Wasikowska
When you’re an independent wrestler, committing a lot of time and effort into honing your craft as much as possible in as many different places as possible will catch the WWE’s interest as far as the independent level goes.
Adam Cole
The state we find ourselves in is sinful quite independent of guilt.
Franz Kafka
I have an independent investment adviser that has full discretionary authority on my accounts. I do not direct any trades.
Marjorie Taylor Greene
It should be remembered, as an axiom of eternal truth in politics, that whatever power in any government is independent, is absolute also.
Thomas Jefferson
I firmly believe that the reputation of any country which is capable of defending the life and dignity of its citizens, and can conduct independent foreign policy will only improve in mid- and long-term perspective.
Vladimir Putin
I get to travel, see the world, meet people and be independent. I feel blessed.
Bar Refaeli
We cannot forbear suggesting one practical result which it appears to us must be greatly facilitated by the independent manner in which the engine orders and combines its operations: we allude to the attainment of those combinations into which imaginary quantities enter.
Ada Lovelace
It is unsound for an independent editor to be a financial contributor to any cause which would cause any type of special pleading.
Walter Annenberg
A man cannot tell whether a woman is in love with him or his security blanket until she is financially and psychologically independent enough to leave. Until a woman has learned how to leave, even she cannot be sure she has learned to love.
Warren Farrell
It is not our believing of the Gospel that makes it true. It exists as independent, true Truth.
Alistair Begg
This constitution we designate by the word genotype. The word is entirely independent of any hypothesis; it is fact, not hypothesis that different zygotes arising by fertilisation can thereby have different qualities, that, even under quite similar conditions of life, phenotypically diverse individuals can develop.
Wilhelm Johannsen
That DMC Act is a disgrace. And the problem with independent art in this country is that independent artists have been economically blacklisted.
Lloyd Kaufman
I just think that the independent voters are going to take their time and look at both candidates.
Jim Talent
Working with David Cronenberg or Darren Aronofsky or even Steven Soderbergh isn’t really like a typical Hollywood movie. These are true artists, and have a certain amount of freedom when they work, and they’re more like independent filmmakers making their way through big studios.
Vincent Cassel
In the rare event that the Supreme Court refuses to play along […] there is always a perfectly legal, extra-constitutional, quasi-legislative, quasi-executive, quasi-judicial, “independent” regulatory commission or executive agency to kill off or override constitutional protections.
Ilana Mercer
My husband believed that all women who want to should be free, equal, independent, creative, well informed, and lead stimulating, interesting lives. Except me.
Lucille Kallen
I grew up thinking there was something called ‘independent film,’ which I wouldn’t necessarily have had access to if there wasn’t Sundance.
Ira Sachs
I don’t have wild dogs chasing people with scripts away from my door. I get my share. I’ve done okay. But I usually do independent stuff because that’s mostly what I’m offered.
Billy Connolly
There is a great tradition of independent filmmaking in the U.S. that I absolutely respect. There’s some wonderful stuff that comes out in this country against all the odds.
Mike Leigh
I like being a strong, independent woman, and to be honest, I was never afraid to be on my own.
Dido Armstrong
Historically, if you look back at the struggle to end slavery, the struggle to gain womens’ right to vote, the labor movement – these were big social transitions in which there was a movement on the ground in which a lot of people died, but it also took an independent political party.
Jill Stein
I’ve always treated my career like independent. Everything that I got is because of myself, my own endorsements, my own touring myself.
When the small independent film, which depends on its artistic appeal rather than wide commercial distribution by an MPAA member, is now denied access, the playing field becomes unfair and uneven.
Norman Jewison
Forget the grand plan. Forget the master scheme. Forget control. That is the bleak but true basis of independent cinema. Inch by motherfuking inch we must, because we have no other choice.
Oliver Stone
First, say to yourself, ‘I’m totally independent of the good or bad opinions of others.’ Second: ‘I’m beneath no one.’ Third: ‘I’m fearless in the face of any and all challenges.’
Deepak Chopra
Ever since Binibini, I’ve really been hands-on since I’ve been an independent candidate. I’m hands-on in every single aspect of my preparations because I’m having so much fun.
Catriona Gray
There may be some difficulties during a period of adjustment. Specifically, picking up their life again and making their own truly independent decisions.
Rick Ross
Having long suspected that there was something alive in there, running the place, separate from everything else, absolutely individual and independent, we’ve celebrated by giving it a real name. My self.
Lewis Thomas
Freedom cannot be bestowed – it must be achieved.
Elbert Hubbard
My mother told me two things constantly. One was to be a lady and the other was to be independent, and the law was something most unusual for those times because for most girls growing up in the ’40s, the most important degree was not your B.A. but your M.R.S.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
I’m an old man, and all my life I’ve said that Notre Dame should remain independent because it’s a national school.
Lou Holtz
I might do my own independent film, that my husband wrote for me, if all the ducks are in a row.
Erica Durance
He saw the cause of his unhappiness in the family–the family as a social institution, which does not permit the child to become an independent individual at the proper time.
August Strindberg
I prefer younger men. In some ways, they are much more open to a woman being stronger and independent then some of the men my age.
Kim Cattrall
It is one of the aims of linguistics to define itself, to recognise what belongs within its domain. In those cases where it relies upon psychology, it will do so indirectly, remaining independent.
Ferdinand de Saussure
A situation is always comic if it participates simultaneously in two series of events which are absolutely independent of each other, and if it can be interpreted in two quite different meanings.
Henri Bergson
I believe it is important for both Russia and Europe that Belarus is a sovereign, independent state where Europeans can feel at home.
Alexander Lukashenko
I’m very independent.
Kate Bosworth
What’s brilliant about the United States system of government is separation of power. Not only the executive, legislative, judicial branches, but also the independence of the military from civilians, an independent media and press, an independent central bank.
Feisal Abdul Rauf
I always feel this pressure of being a strong and independent icon of womanhood, and without making it look my whole life is revolving around some guy. But loving someone, and being loved means so much to me. We always make fun of it and stuff. But isn’t everything we do in life a way to be loved a little more?
Julie Delpy
Here in the enclave, one didn’t prosper by demonstrating too much independent thought.
Ann Aguirre
Without Socialism the working class is a heterogeneous mixture of different categories, some of which have independent, varying interests, sometimes opposed to each other.
Karl Radek
Early on it was much easier to play leads, but now independent movies are being co-opted by the studio system, and they want bigger names to guarantee more audience and more numbers.
Parker Posey
Jane, be still; don’t struggle so like a wild, frantic bird, that is rending its own plumage in its desperation.” “I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being, with an independent will; which I now exert to leave you.
Charlotte Bronte
My greatest inspiration… is my mum, who had a baby at the age of 42 and is still so fit, independent and beautiful.
Jaime Winstone
Since an informed citizenry is the basis for a healthy democracy, independent, non-corporate media are more crucial today than ever before
Dahr Jamail
I’m an independent, but I got to admit I lean Democratic.
Chris Rock
It is not wealth one asks for, but just enough to preserve one’s dignity, to work unhampered, to be generous, frank and independent.
W. Somerset Maugham
It is the first responsibility of every citizen to question authority.
Benjamin Franklin
…it is fairly well agreed that the surface temperature will rise about 1В°C as a modest response to a doubling of atmospheric CO2 if the rest of the component processes of the climate system remain independent of this response.
John Christy
And now the really difficult part: We have to rebuild Iraq into a strong and independent nation that will one day hate the United States.
David Letterman
For any movement to emerge, it has to be innovatively independent from the mainstream cinema, and I don’t see that much.
Haile Gerima
Some of the best roles are for women in these independent, smaller movies.
Kyra Sedgwick
You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.
Mahatma Gandhi
In today’s world, both men and woman need motherhood, the nurturing motherly feeling, the feminine energy. By receiving this energy, it will make them independent and free.
Mata Amritanandamayi
For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.
Nelson Mandela
There could be great thrillers or great dramas or great comedies made in that world but everyone’s afraid of it. So you have to do them as these crazy little independent movies.
George Ratliff
The number of lines of code a programmer can write in a fixed period of time is the same independent of the language used.
Fernando J. Corbato
It is a misnomer to call a government republican in which a branch of the supreme power is independent of the nation.
Thomas Jefferson
It is easy to be independent when all behind you agree with you, but the difficulty comes when nine hundred and ninety-nine of your friends think you are wrong.
Wendell Phillips
There is in fact no such thing as art for art’s sake, art that stands above classes, art that is detached from or independent of politics. Proletarian literature and art are part of the whole proletarian revolutionary cause.
Mao Zedong
We said we are ready to establish our independent state in any part from which the Israelis withdraw or which is liberated. Any part. The moment they withdraw from Gaza, I will establish my state there in Gaza.
Yasser Arafat
I’m proud of the fact that I made my way in life very rigorously. I was a bit too stubborn when it came to certain things, which was unnecessary, like getting independent from and leaving Germany.
Thomas Kretschmann
Memories have ways of becoming independent of the reality they evoke. They can soften us against those we were deeply hurt by or they can make us resent those we once accepted and loved unconditionally.
Azar Nafisi
I’m definitely a fan of sort of dramas, independent sort of social dramas where you play really challenging roles. Every actor wants to play those dark roles and it’s definitely true for me and I’d love to kind of challenge myself in any way possible.
Nathalie Emmanuel
The great revolution in the history of man, past, present and future, is the revolution of those determined to be free.
John F. Kennedy
I believe that an independent and impartial judiciary is essential to our constitutional republic.
Brett Kavanaugh
People say to me, ‘You seem to have made this conscious decision to do independent films’. In reality, I haven’t. After each movie, I always think, ‘how different can I possibly be? Is this going to challenge me, is this going to inspire me, and is this going to make me love my job more than I already do?’
Kate Winslet
As long as mankind is made up of independent individuals with free will, there cannot be any social status quo. Men will develop new urges, and these will give rise to new problems, which will require ever new solutions. Human life implies adventure, and there is no adventure without struggles and dangers.
Rene Dubos
There’s a strange sense of accomplishment in making an independent film. Everything’s against you; there’s no time, and even less money – you bring a bottle of glue, chip in twenty bucks, and hope you all make it through the day. If you manage to finish it and it actually turns out to be pretty good, it’s thrilling.
Eric Stoltz
Making an independent documentary film is so hard that usually, the usual model is that your film becomes a model for advocacy, so you can enlist that support group and get as much juice out of your film as possible. That’s just practically, financially, what you need to do.
Tim Hetherington
The emancipation of women must be the work of women themselves, independent of the class struggle.
Simone de Beauvoir
Surrender goes against our very nature to be independent. Surrender indicates we willingly choose to rely on others. We must rewire our thinking to recognize that needing another person (and being the person someone else needs) is not a weakness; it only strengthens us.
Anne Marie Miller
From first to last it is a dish of rank materialism cleverly cooked up … . And why is this done? For no other reason, I am sure, except to make us independent of a Creator.
Adam Sedgwick
Kids are a great analogy. You want your kids to grow up, and you don’t want your kids to grow up. You want your kids to become independent of you, but it’s also a parent’s worst nightmare: That they won’t need you. It’s like the real tragedy of parenting.
Jonathan Safran Foer
The more baseball the better. It is a healthful sport and develops team play and initiative, plus an independent attitude.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
The question is not whether Tibet should be independent but the extent of the autonomy that it is allowed. Tibet has been firmly ensconced as part of the Chinese empire since the Qing dynasty’s military intervention in Tibet in the early 18th century.
Martin Jacques
It is our dream that by the time we celebrate the 75th year of independent India, all the slums are replaced by cemented houses.
Narendra Modi
I don’t necessarily support Romney, I don’t consider myself a Republican. I’m pretty much an independent.
Sean Duffy
As an independent artist, there can be nothing better than the fact that your song will be played and heard in different corners of the world.
Guru Randhawa
Despite his consistent party-line voting record, some independents and Democrats still think of Senator McCain as the most palatable, independent-minded Republican. But this is the sort of empty compliment a friend of mine once compared to being called “the coolest Osmond.
Sarah Vowell
A lot of independent films offer a harsh reality check.
Aubrey Plaza
There are two different conceptions about the nature of the universe: (1) the world as a unity dependent on humanity; (2) the world as a reality independent of the human factor.
Albert Einstein
A motorcycle is an independent thing.
Ryan Hurst
The greatest danger to the State is independent intellectual criticism.
Murray Rothbard
There’s no independent satisfaction without the success of the film itself. The feel that you have done the best you can to support the film.
Harrison Ford
We have the self-evident right to regulate our trade according to our own will and our own interest . . . . This right can be denied to no independent nation.
James Madison
No employer today is independent of those about him. He cannot succeed alone, no matter how great his ability or capital. Business today is more than ever a question of cooperation.
Orison Swett Marden
The principle that a central bank, charged with controlling inflation, should be independent from the government is unassailable. It may also be true that it’s easier for the central bank to guard its independence from political pressure when it mainly holds government securities.
Janet Yellen
The error is in the assumption that the General Government is a party to the constitutional compact. The States … formed the compact, acting as sovereign and independent communities.
John C. Calhoun
No government likes the clever and the honorable men, because it is impossible to bridle them; they are independent!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
Sometimes it’s hard for me to tell the difference between independent filmmaking and studio filmmaking because all the studios have these little independent satellites. It’s interesting.
Kerry Washington
The 2016 presidential election is ripe for the emergence of a game-changing political leader who either dramatically reforms one of the existing parties or mounts an independent bid.
Ron Fournier
I have nothing but the highest regard for ‘Salon’ and its commitment to independent and provocative journalism.
Glenn Greenwald
I really love the independent movies and I just think that sometimes when they throw a lot of money into it and a lot of special effects and a lot of stunts that you lose the connection, the human connection and I personally love movies that are about the human connection.
Jane Seymour
When I am in India, I feel pampered. However, when I am In Georgia, I am on my own, as I have to cook and do things all by myself. However, that gives me an independent feeling.
Sai Pallavi
The culture of independent film criticism has totally gone down the drain and this seems to come with the territory of the consumer age that we are now living in.
Wim Wenders
in today’s world no country can be absolutely independent of another. It is a world of interdependence.
Indira Gandhi
Cuba ought to be free and independent, and the government should be turned over to the Cuban people.
William McKinley
The studios aren’t lining up to make films about black protagonists, black people being autonomous and independent.
Ava DuVernay
I – it’s simply not for me to evaluate an independent rating agency’s processes. But I will say that there was reason to be anxious – absolute reason to be anxious.
Jay Carney
Happiness is not the whole aim of education. A man must be independent in his powers and character; able to work and assert his mastery over all that depends on him.
Maria Montessori
Children are taught to fear and obey; the avarice, pride, or timidity of parents teaches children economy, arrogance, or submission. They are also encouraged to be imitators, a course to which they are already only too much inclined. No one thinks of making them original, courageous, independent.
Luc de Clapiers
Yes, I definitely believe that it has some good cross-platform properties. Object orientation was one of the techniques I used to make Python platform independent.
Guido van Rossum
A man is not a financial plan.
Robert Kiyosaki
I hate this life of the fashionable world, always ordered, measured, ruled, like our music-paper. What I have always wished for, desired, and coveted, is the life of an artist, free and independent, relying only on my own resources, and accountable only to myself.
Alexandre Dumas
Money is not an invention of the state. It is not the product of a legislative act. Even the sanction of political authority is not necessary for its existence. Certain commodities came to be money quite naturally, as the result of economic relationships that were independent of the power of the state.
Carl Menger
She thought she was independent and strong, but she got one small taste of love and she was hungrier than anyone. She was ravenous.
Ann Brashares
I’m not prejudiced about what type of movies I’m in, what form they take or whether they’re studio or independent. I just want to make films that are going to be good. The main reason is not to make money, although at some points it’s really difficult when you’re broke.
Michael Pitt
Our brains are separate and independent enough from our genes to rebel against them.. we do so in a small way everytime we use contraception. There is no reason why we should not rebel in a large way too.
Richard Dawkins
The liberal arts inform and enlighten the independent citizen of a democracy in the use of his own resources…. They enlarge his capacity for self-knowledge and expand his opportunities for self-improvement…. They are the wellsprings of a free society.
Alfred Whitney Griswold
It’s a very independent male creature that lives alone, and a lot of independent females who live alone. It’s all very sad but it’s much easier for both sexes to do it this way nowadays.
Bette Davis
I’m also working on another independent film called Roxanne, Roxanne, about Roxanne Shante, who was one of the first African American battle rappers from Brooklyn. It is produced by Forest Whitaker and Pharrell [williams], so I’m really in great hands.
Nia Long
You can do more of independent films. A Hollywood picture, you’ll do one a year, one of those big blockbusters, right? Then you’ve gotta go to the gym to get in shape to do all of the running and shooting and diving and falling and hitting and all that stuff they do today.
Ben Gazzara
A man unconsciously imagines that where he is strong, where he feels most thoroughly alive, the element of his freedom must lie.
Friedrich Nietzsche
I do love directing. I’m only comfortable working in the independent film arena for a very small budget where I have creative control and I can put my stamp on it.
Vera Farmiga
The independent girl is a person before whose wrath only the most rash dare stand, and, they, it must be confessed, with much fear and trembling.
Lou Henry Hoover
My British publisher has this independent press. It’s pretty small; they actually won last year. And she’s got this great energy, and she’s fiercely independent, and you know this book was a hard sell. No one wanted to buy this book. But she did, and so it’s paid off for her, I hope.
Paul Beatty
The most strongly enforced of all known taboos is the taboo against knowing who or what you really are behind the mask of your apparently separate, independent, and isolated ego.
Alan Watts
Reality manifests itself as constant and objective – independent of us, but as changeable in space and time. Consequently, its reflection in us contains both properties. Mixed up in our mind, these properties are confused and we do not have a proper image of reality.
Piet Mondrian
I love making independent movies, and that’s pretty much what I’m going to be doing for the rest of my years.
Milla Jovovich
Within speech, words are subject to a kind of relation that is independent of the first and based on their linkage: these are syntagmatic relations, of which I have spoken.
Ferdinand de Saussure
None of you speaks for me. I speak for me. I am a judge. I am independent. I make up my own mind.
Neil Gorsuch
The greatest thing about being a mother so young, I had my first child at 24, is that I cook, I clean, I love to be independent and kind of hate to be waited on and hate to be taken care of. So, I guess that demonstrates my fiercely independent nature which is kind of anti what I portray on a weekly basis.
Vanessa L. Williams
The standard that measures two things is something different from either. You are, in fact, comparing them both with some Real Morality, admitting that there is such a thing as a real Right, independent of what people think, and that some people’s ideas get nearer to that real Right than others.
C. S. Lewis
A cultural fixation on female thinness is not an obsession about female beauty but an obsession about female obedience.
Naomi Wolf
Al-Qaeda has a kind of loose, almost entrepreneurial structure with lots of cells in various countries that are semi-independent.
Ron Suskind
I went to the Independent Spirit Awards and won.
Lupita Nyong’o
If a woman makes a unilateral decision to bring pregnancy to term, and the biological father does not, and cannot, share in this decision, he should not be liable for 21 years of support… autonomous women making independent decisions about their lives should not expect men to finance their choice.
Karen DeCrow
I’ve always loved independent women, outspoken women, eccentric women, funny women, flawed women. When someone says about a woman, ‘I’m sorry, that’s just wrong,’ I tend to think she must be doing something right.
Diane Keaton
Definition of an independent film is torture with less money and time.
Joey Lauren Adams
I think it’s very important that LGBT narratives are spoken from LGBT perspectives. I think that what I do is important as far as creating a lane for myself to be independent.
Cakes da killa
People working for a news organization, even those with a point of view, are supposed to exercise independent judgment.
David Folkenflik
There is a bond, it appears, between mother and child which endures as long as they do. It is independent of love; reason cannot weaken it; hate cannot destroy it.
Margaret Deland
The child’s conquests of independence are the basic steps in what is called his ‘natural development’.
Maria Montessori
If a book I’ve committed myself to review turns out to be ‘disappointing’ I make an effort to present it objectively to the reader, including a good number of excerpts from the text, so that the reader might form his or her own opinion independent of my own.
Joyce Carol Oates
Zamunda represent everything that is kewl and real about vagabonding….being the person that discovered Zamunda (for independent travelers) during the research of my book, Vagabonding, I am happy to see a well written guide done by the boyz and girl at BootsnAll
Rolf Potts
Every human has four endowments – self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom… The power to choose, to respond, to change.
Stephen Covey
As long as a branch of science offers an abundance of problems, so long it is alive; a lack of problems foreshadows extinction or the cessation of independent development.
David Hilbert
Without free, self-respecting, and autonomous citizens there can be no free and independent nations.
Vaclav Havel
That stupid people are more violent is a fact independent of skin color.
Eric S. Raymond
There is nothing to fear from truth….Being truthful is essential to being an independent thinker and obtaining greater understanding of what is right.
Ray Dalio
I’ve had years of bizarre hallucinogenic magical experiences in which I believed I had communicated with entities that may well have been disassociated parts of my own personality or conceivably some independent entity of a metaphysical nature. Both would seem equally interesting.
Alan Moore
A wise parent humors the desire for independent action, so as to become the friend and advisor when his absolute rule shall cease.
Elizabeth Gaskell
I’ve always been independent, and I don’t see how it conflicts with femininity.
Sylvia Porter
No one can be free unless he is independent. Therefore, the first active manifestations of the child’s individual liberty must be so guided that through this activity he may arrive at independence.
Maria Montessori
You know, independent films have been institutionalized, practically. Every studio has got a boutique arthouse label.
Edward Norton
I am the longest- serving independent in the history of the United States Congress. People of Vermont sent me to Washington as an independent. That is true.
Bernie Sanders
I love the art house, and when I say the art house, I don’t just mean little, independent movies but movies that really aim to be about something and say something and I love those movies.
Justin Simien
I come from a background of independent films.
Mia Wasikowska
‘Independent’ means one thing to me: It means that regardless of the source of financing, the director’s voice is extremely present. It’s such a pretentious term, but it’s auteurist cinema. Director-driven, personal, auteurist… Whatever word you want.
Alexander Payne
In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.
Galileo Galilei
There aren’t that many galleries in Havana. There are a few state galleries and an ever-increasing but still limited number of independent galleries; there’s no comparison with the number in New York.
Rachael Price
There is a real world independent of our senses; the laws of nature were not invented by man, but forced on him by the natural world. They are the expression of a natural world order.
Max Planck
Children have as much mind to show that they are free, that their own good actions come from themselves, that they are absolute and independent, as any of the proudest of you grown men, think of them as you please.
John Locke
If film making is magic, there’s a difference between close up magic and David Copperfield. If you’re doing close up magic, which independent filmmakers do, it is a very delicate craft, interpersonal relationship, and being able to enrapture a very small audience.
Guillermo del Toro
If there will be a serious Palestinian prime minister who makes a 100 percent effort to end terrorism, then we can have peace. Each side has to take steps. If terror continues, there will not be an independent Palestinian state. Israel will not accept it, if terror continues.
Ariel Sharon
My good films were independent and my bad films were not.
Ralph Bakshi
I don’t want to produce anymore small or independent movies because it’s just too hard these days.
John Cusack
Without independent corroboration, little can be done to tell a false memory from a true one.
Elizabeth Loftus
The first aim of the prepared environment is, as far as it is possible, to render the growing child independent of the adult.
Maria Montessori
Created man cannot become a son of God and god by grace through deification, unless he is first through his own free choice begotten in the Spirit by means of the self-loving and independent power dwelling naturally in him.
Maximus the Confessor
We feel free. We’re independent. People can be openly proud of being Estonian. I have a lot of belief in Estonia.
Carmen Kass
. . . we have overcome the notion that mathematical truths have an existence independent and apart from our own minds. It is even strange to us that such a notion could ever have existed.
Edward Kasner
What I find interesting as a 40-year-old is the idea of trying to be a part of a pronounced, continuing independent culture. The basic tenet of America is that you rebel and then you get real.
Ian MacKaye
TV’s sameness has destroyed many things, such as the American urge toward independent thought.
Bennett Cerf
There will never be a really free and enlightened State until the State comes to recognize the individual as a higher and independent power, from which all its own power and authority are derived, and treats him accordingly.
Henry David Thoreau
Fortunately, I was given an incredible foundation from my independent mother. She showed me what was possible from a strong, loving woman.
Laird Hamilton
Never seek financial independence in independent cinema since independent cinema doesn’t make money.
Mitra Farahani
She’s the ulimate heroine, strong-willed and independent, intelligent, loyal, but at the same time, she’s not flawless, she’s not above mistakes, or falling in love.
Tammara Webber
One of the chief symptoms of every revolution is the sharp and sudden increase in the number of ordinary people who take an active, independent and forceful interest in politics.
Vladimir Lenin
An editorial writer might consult a reporter to see what she thinks, if it is what she covers. But they are entirely independent.
Gene Weingarten
The ideal of helping is to make others independent of you. You help them to become more independent rather than making them addicted to you.
Chogyam Trungpa
I used to take hostages in my relationships and not let people be independent. It always ended in disaster, because you take away people’s identity and they end up full of resentment.
Elton John
When you sing R&B songs in front of an audience, you look out and there’s 85% women. I think R&B music is sort of designed for a man singing to a woman. I don’t sing it like the sexy thing, but sort of pseudo-sexy. We rally the women together because it’s about being independent and things like that.
Jamie Foxx
I always had that yearning, that hunger, to one day be independent and be my own person and build my own world. The most fulfilling thing is to live a life where you have freedom.
Michelle Phan
The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity.
John Quincy Adams
Information is Power. Think For Yourself. CAUTION: proper use of the brain is not endorsed by federal governments nor huge corporations involved in serious financial profit from a brainwashed and enslaved population. Mild discomfort may occur as confusing independent thought challenges popular views of the world.
Timothy Leary
We want to end this misery of the Palestinian people in order for us really to live with dignity as human beings in an independent state side by side with the Israeli state.
Benjamin Netanyahu
In a sense I feel very much a part of the cinema now in a way where when I come back to the theater now I feel like a visitor. The cinema is really what I enjoy. I want to do more independent movies.
Brian Cox
I was lucky enough to come in at the beginning of the independent film movement, and it’s really shaped my life and my career.
Julianne Moore
I moved to New York in the 1970s and started writing when I was at the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program.
Jenny Holzer
Id like to do an action film or a dark sort of independent piece.
Devon Sawa
All mankind… being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty or possessions.
John Locke
I’m a bit of a shopaholic. I’ve been working in the Bollywood film industry since I was 17, and I have always been financially independent, but I think I would be useless looking after my own money.
Shilpa Shetty
The Reagan years showed us that expanding economic freedom should be the North Star – the guiding light – of U.S. policy, because it is the best way to achieve sustained and broad-based prosperity for all.
Jon Kyl
My message to women is it’s okay not to toe the party line on every issue. You don’t have to be a puppet or a mouthpiece for your party on every issue. You can be an independent thinker; you can take it issue by issue, and that’s okay. You shouldn’t be told, ‘You can’t sit with us.’
Tomi Lahren
I was on the wrong side of colonization. My ancestry is mostly mired in having the colonial experience as colonized subjects, first as slaves and then as independent subjects with a post-colonial experience.
Fred D’Aguiar
Being culturally ambiguous and having to deal with bullying made me strong and independent.
Shanina Shaik
There’s a consistency in my work that pops up independent of the limitations of the technology.
Douglas Trumbull
That became a big time in comic books because it’s when people were starting to break out into independent stuff, the market was getting choked with speculators and everybody was trying to do their own trick covers.
Todd McFarlane
From my mom and dad, because they’re happily married for a long time: Just listen. Listen to him. I’m so independent and driven and stubborn. Just let him talk. It’s about not being so stubborn and having to win every argument. My parents set a great example. They love each other and take care of each other so much.
Erin Andrews
I should be able to pick which applications I use for managing my life, I should be able to pick which content I look at, and I should be able to pick which device I use, which company I use for supplying my internet, and I’d like those to be independent choices.
Tim Berners-Lee
Few developments in campaigning have been as vilified and misunderstood as independent expenditure PACs, or, as they are colloquially known, super PACs.
Bradley A. Smith
The Commission has five commissioners from each side, plus three alternates, so all together sixteen members, people who are independent from the two governments, who have a lot of integrity, professional competence, and who have credibility in their respective countries.
Jose Ramos-Horta
Nations, like individuals in a state of nature, are equal and independent, possessing certain rights and owing certain duties to each other.
Millard Fillmore
Any contemporary political re-statement of liberal and socialist goals must include as central the idea of a society in which all men would become men of substantive reason, whose independent reasoning would have structural consequences for their societies, its history and thus for their own life fates.
C. Wright Mills
The world should commit Israel to withdraw from our territories and stop occupation and aggression, and allow the Palestinian people to establish their independent state.
Khaled Mashal
Thinking is hard work, which is why you don’t see many people doing it.
Sue Grafton
The material universe must consist … of bodies … such that each of them exercises its own separate, independent, and invariable effect, a change of the total state being compounded of a number of separate changes each of which is solely due to a separate portion of the preceding state.
Arthur David Ritchie
None of the constitutional, legal or other principles bars me from returning to the judiciary, since the judiciary remains independent if the actors remain independent and fair.
Khil Raj Regmi
What man wants is simply independent choice, whatever that independence may cost and wherever it may lead.
Fyodor Dostoevsky
As much as I cherish your [McCarthy’s] right to a platform as an independent candidate I am not going to sit here quietly and listen to you denigrate the two party system. It has served our country well over the last two hundred years.
John Anderson
I’m not a Democrat, I’m an Independent, but I caucus with the Democrats.
Bernie Sanders
The same rule that teaches the propriety of a partition between the various branches of power, teaches us likewise that this partition ought to be so contrived as to render the one independent of the other.
Alexander Hamilton
Far from creating independent thinkers, schools have always, throughout history, played an institutional role in a system of control and coercion. And once you are well educated you have already been socialized in ways that support the power structure, which, in turn, rewards you immensely.
Noam Chomsky
Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.
Abraham Lincoln
It’s always fun to get to do independent film because I believe that that’s the life blood of film. It’s about writers and directors who truly have their own vision, and that’s hard.
Steve Buscemi
Kids raised to be pampered and spoiled don’t really end up being good leaders. Leaders need to be independent minded and confident.
Amy Chua
Women are the volatile vote at the end-particularly independent, non-college-educated married women.
Celinda Lake
One of the things that separates climbing from other sports is how independent and personal it is. With most sports, you either win or lose, but climbing is about your own personal experience.
Chris Sharma
I like independent movies, documentaries. There’s not a lot of movies that are commercially made that I dig.
Jeff Garlin
Farther I could find it in my heart to wish that you had been at the head of a hundred thousand Israelites . . . & marching with them into Judea & making a conquest of that country & restoring your nation to the dominion of it. For I really wish the Jews again in Judea an independent nation.
John Adams
Bill Ford, Jr., is somebody who wants to move this industry, to lead the nation in making us independent of foreign oil, of making the green vehicle.
Jennifer Granholm
[‘American Dream’ will be released] probably never.Never in the United States because there’s no room for independent cinema.
Janusz Kaminski
Love is a balance between independence and interdependence. In love, you want to be independent and interdependent. You want to be a little bit selfish and a little bit selfless. Love can be an antidote to loneliness, as long as there is some aloneness in it.
Bruce Feiler
The lesbian is the archtypical feminist, because she’s not into men – she’s the independent woman par excellence.
Kate Millett
The whole educational and professional training system is a very elaborate filter, which just weeds out people who are too independent, and who think for themselves, and who don’t know how to be submissive, and so on — because they’re dysfunctional to the institutions.
Noam Chomsky
Not on the outer world For inward joy depend; Enjoy the luxury of thought, Make thine own self friend; Not with the restless throng, In search of solace roam But with an independent zeal Be intimate at home.
Lydia Sigourney
I believe that companies that are independent are more competitive, ultimately.
Evan Williams
I’m independent. I use my own money. For everything.
Aaron Dontez Yates
I didn’t think I was going to change the world for women; I just did what I did. My big thing was that I didn’t change who and what I was to become successful. I will not be told what to do; I’m a real independent girl.
Suzi Quatro
The constancy of the internal environment is the condition for free and independent life: the mechanism that makes it possible is that which assured the maintenance, with the internal environment, of all the conditions necessary for the life of the elements.
Claude Bernard
I want to do a movie, but it has to be the right movie, whether it’s independent or a studio movie. I’m much more open to being a supporting actor. At the age of 60, I’ll be second fiddle. Fine. I’m happy to do it.
Robin Williams
I needed to grow up and do things all adults do. It was time to stop having everything spoon fed to me. It was about being independent.
Paula Creamer
An instinct is a blind tendency to some mode of action, independent of any consideration, on the part of the agent, of the end to which the action leads.
Richard Whately
To make independent films, you can’t think about them too much, ponder on them too much, get overwhelmed by the enormity of it.
Michael Rapaport
The development of general ability for independent thinking and judgment should always be placed foremost, not the acquisition of special knowledge.
Albert Einstein
And I’ll tell you another thing, you won’t find any candidate that supports prayer in school and gay marriage. For that reason alone, people should vote for an independent-thinking person.
Kinky Friedman
I take up the standpoint that the tendency to aggression is an innate, independent, instinctual disposition in man, and I come back now to the statement that it constitutes the most powerful obstacle to culture.
Sigmund Freud
The value of ‘Made in Italy’ must necessarily be up-to-date. This is the philosophy that Italia Independent has embraced. We decided from the outset to do away with stereotypes and attune ourselves to the extreme pace, to the incessant metamorphoses of the globalized world.
Lapo Elkann
As an independent filmmaker, to develop the money and the financing and the structure and the whole process, and then promoting them and traveling with them, which is a part of the process that I’ve always enjoyed and I’ve learned a great deal from.
Todd Haynes
Truth lies at the confluence of independent streams of evidence.
Karl Deutsch
Yesterday, the greatest question was decided which ever was debated in America; and a greater perhaps never was, nor will be, decided among men. A resolution was passed without one dissenting colony, that those United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States.
John Adams
The real issue is not talent as an independent element, but talent in relationship to will, desire, and persistence. Talent without these things vanishes and even modest talent with those characteristics grows.
Milton Glaser
Apparently, the most difficult feat for a Cambridge male is to accept a woman not merely as feeling, not merely as thinking, but as managing a complex, vital interweaving of both.
Sylvia Plath
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.
Winston Churchill
I don’t think I could ever have a desk job, so I get to be mobile. I’m on set. I get to walk around kind of doing my own thing, being independent – it’s just a really good vibe. Everyone on a film set is very happy, and they all love their jobs, so it’s a cool environment to be a part of.
Jean-Luc Bilodeau
I try to balance independent films with commercial films, and I’ve done a pretty good job of it over the years.
John Travolta
Independent bread gives independent morals: – while pecuniary dependence makes moral subserviency; – So get money – get wealth
Susan B. Anthony
After a subsequent interview at Brooklyn Poly, I was hired, and life as a fully independent researcher began.
Rudolph A. Marcus
A part of me is a liberal New Yorker involved in politics and certain attitudes about movies. I kind of lost my indie credibility over ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith.’ I know I haven’t lost it. I just have to go make an independent movie. I just have to do it. Just for me.
Doug Liman
We have this day restored the Sovereign to Whom all men ought to be obedient. He reigns in heaven and from the rising to the setting of the sun, let His kingdom come.
Samuel Adams
This fall I’m doing something I’ve never done before. I’m starring in a film, an independent film.
Michael W. Smith
I am not a part of Bollywood. Nobody cares about me in Bollywood and I have mentally resigned from Bollywood long ago. I am an independent filmmaker.
Vivek Agnihotri
There’s a massive part of me that can be bold and courageous…very strong and very assertive and independent, almost to a fault sometimes.
Evangeline Lilly
Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.
Like all independent movies, the first thing you’re looking for is a name actor who will justify your financing.
Steven Shainberg
The creative ability of an artist is manifested only if he succeeds in transforming the natural phenomena into ‘another reality.’ This part of the creative process as an independent element, if conscious and developed, hints at the possibility of creating a painting.
Frantisek Kupka
I’ve always – honestly – never thought of myself as an independent director.
Harmony Korine
I mean, I like to think of myself as being strong and independent, but I definitely wasn’t like that at 14.
Alison Lohman
My office in Milan is in an old factory. I have all my companies here, including Italia Independent and Independent Ideas.
Lapo Elkann
If you need to be bound to someone, then it’s important to be married. If you are independent, then it’s important to not be married.
Goldie Hawn
Strive to realize a state of inward happiness, independent of circumstances.
James Pierrepont Greaves
A mind cannot be independent of culture.
Lev Vygotsky
The war against terrorism should not be used to interfere with an independent, sovereign state.We need to identify concrete terrorist targets and do no harm to civilians.
Nong ?uc Manh
Justice has no independent existence; it results from mutual contracts, and establishes itself wherever there is a mutual engagement to guard against doing or sustaining mutual injury.
The war against terrorism should not be used to interfere with an independent, sovereign state. We need to identify concrete terrorist targets and do no harm to civilians.
Nong Duc Manh
I like working in both movies and television. Television is faster, not very much rehearsal and a lot of material is shot in a day. Big budget movies are luxurious in terms of the schedule. Independent films often shoot fast as well.
Juliet Landau
Europe has shown how government can be organised in a network. Its institutions both compete and co-operate and include a directly elected parliament that does not appoint the executive, independent judiciaries and a complex set of relationships between the Commission, the Council of Ministers and the Parliament.
Geoff Mulgan
Independent film making is very collaborative. You feel like it’s you, the director and other actors and you really feel like you have the final say. When you do the bigger films, the studio has to give the final thumbs up and they’re usually not big on risk taking because they’re trying to make money.
Michael B. Jordan
Iraq may get peace and stability through restoring it’s sovereignty under participation of all Iraqi factions and sectarian groups, who must rebuild a new democratic, free and independent Iraq.
Ali Abdullah Saleh
Fixing things around the house was the last bastion of manliness. But now, even that is getting taken away. As women become more economically independent, they are starting to fix things around the house for themselves.
Hanna Rosin
It would be wrong to suggest that Scotland could not be another such successful, independent country.
David Cameron
I’ve made three musical movies which is pretty good considering that not many are made but I was lucky in other ways. I came along when independent movies were starting to boom.
Christopher Walken
When you go independent, if you fail, you’re totally responsible for it. If you succeed, you’re totally responsible for it. You are responsibly for who you are… and what you do and what you make.
Nature never said to me: Do not be poor; still less did she say: Be rich; her cry to me was always: Be independent.
Nicolas Chamfort
If I’m going to do a big film, I’m very choosy about what I do, because I think I want to continue – in fact I’m sure I want to continue – to stay in the realm of independent films with directors and writers who are just emerging with new ideas and a different vision that hasn’t really been expressed yet.
James Duval
Because GMOs aren’t labeled, it’s very hard to prove causality in terms of health effects. It’s even more difficult because the seeds are patented, so independent researchers have a hard time gaining access to them.
Zoe Lister-Jones
I will never deny that life isn’t fair. It seems as though when a woman leaves a man she is strong and independent, but when a man leaves a woman he is a pig and a jerk.
Criss Jami
Human societies vary in lots of independent factors affecting their openness to innovation.
Jared Diamond
Tiger parenting is all about raising independent, creative, courageous kids. In America today, there’s a dangerous tendency to romanticize creativity in a way that may undermine it.
Amy Chua
I’ve been misunderstood when it comes to women. I’ve got a big heart and a little brain. But I love women being women; there’s something about their skin. I do love strong, independent women, but they are definitely complicated.
