I don’t happen to approve of plastic surgery. I think God put plastic surgeons on this earth for good reasons – people get burned or people might have a nose like Pinocchio and that has to be fixed.

Grown-ups and children are not readily encouraged to unearth the power of words.

We will literally send a van and a photographer to the home of anybody that can say they can’t get a picture made and a photo ID and we will do it… at the state’s cost and the taxpayer cost and not at the individual cost.
When they make a woman’s picture, they treat it like a ‘woman’s picture.’ In the ’40s, they didn’t treat Joan Crawford movies like that, but as the big movies of their year.

In Hollywood – in Hollywood, you’re as good as your last picture.

Acting is the physical representation of a mental picture and the projection of an emotional concept.
People just expect you to show up, be a cartoon character of yourself, take your money and go home. But don’t screw up to the point where you’re gonna be out of the picture.
Sometimes, if I see a picture and I can make it a bit better, then I will, like everyone else does. I’ve been Photoshopped in every picture since I started modelling.
I really never thought about the way I looked until boys came into the picture.
Supermodels are over, and the new picture girl has become the television actress.
It is the framework which changes with each new technology and not just the picture within the frame.
A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery.
I can assure you that it feels even stranger to me than it probably does to you to have seen so much written about me when I have done so little to paint a picture of myself.
I had only that one picture, Hitler, the Beast of Berlin, in which I had a part big enough to impress anyone. I tried for better roles over and over again.
I am an artist, you understand? For me, a picture is like poetry. When you make art, this is not coming from an intellectual place. It’s coming from the deep side of your unconscious, your soul.
If people don’t want to go to the picture, nobody can stop them.
I’ve made 122 movies, and I daresay there’s a picture of mine showing somewhere in the world every day.
I’ve seen it too many times in Hollywood. Talking about a relationship in public can jinx it. And if you have your picture taken together, you might as well start packing your bags.
When I was a kid, I used to do my homework in the living room, where there was a picture window. I was hoping that someone would walk by and see me looking very studious in my living room.
You return and again take the proper course, guided by what? – By the picture in mind of the place you are headed for.
I found out that you could audition by sending a picture of yourself and some information to Newsround.
Some theists in evolutionary science acquiesce to these tacit rules and retain a personal faith while accepting a thoroughly naturalistic picture of physical reality.
I’ve been watching politics for 35 or 40 years and you just never know. You can have one person win the Iowa caucus and then the whole picture changes ten minutes later. The same thing can happen again after New Hampshire. I have no idea what’s going to happen with our country in the future.
I keep a picture of my beloved children close by. Also, water and plenty of pads and pens.
I think you have a pact with an audience in every picture, and I think the pact is to try and be truthful and to be real.
My dad was an engineer and so I had this picture of science and technology and pursuits of the mind as being more impressive than artistic pursuits, which I saw a as kind of frivolous.
I picture Generation X as young adults living in a state of perpetual adolescence.
The larger picture here is that a North Korea with nuclear weapons adds to the larger proliferation risk.
No one painted a more accurate picture of military depredation than Vergil. Inspired though he was by the Latin spirit and by his pride in Rome, he nevertheless glorified Rome’s true mission as one of providing the world with the rules of peace and justice.
I like having my picture taken and being a glamorous person. Sometimes when I find myself getting impatient, I just remember the times I cried my eyes out because nobody wanted to take my picture at the Trocadero.
Forget it, Louis, no Civil War picture ever made a nickel.
I think the one thing this picture shows that’s new is the psychological disproportion of the kids’ demands on the parents. Parents are often at fault, but the kids have some work to do, too.
The great thing about making picture books is that you can make absolutely anything you want happen. It’s a bit like making a film, but you don’t need lots of money for actors and costumes – you just need pens, paper, and your imagination.
Too caustic? To hell with the costs, we’ll make the picture anyway.
Do not think that I have stopped painting, for at any moment, I am liable to paint a good picture.
Style is innate to who I am. My father gave me a picture the other day. I must have been about seven, and I had on wing-tip shoes and some cool pants. I thought, ‘Wow!’
The mindset that I have on every project I take on is, ‘How do I make this interesting enough for me to want to stop and look at it?’ So in that regard, what I do behind the camera, whether it’s still or motion picture, is the same.
The postman wants an autograph. The cab driver wants a picture. The waitress wants a handshake. Everyone wants a piece of you.
I have written most of my melodies walking and I feel it is definitely one of the most helpful ways of sewing all of the different things in your life together and seeing the whole picture.
Now to consult the rules of composition before making a picture is a little like consulting the law of gravitation before going for a walk. Such rules and laws are deduced from the accomplished fact; they are the products of reflection.
I’m convinced that no one can amount to a damn in the arts if he becomes sweetly reasonable, seeing all sides of a picture, forgiving all sins.
I liked his ability to deal with a lot of the negativity that surrounded him. Even though he was in a world that he didn’t want to be in, he still saw the bigger picture.
Naturally, there are times when every woman likes to be flattered… to feel she is the most important thing in someone’s world. Only a man can paint this picture.
But you can’t show some far off idyllic conception of behavior if you want the kids to come and see the picture. You’ve got to show what it’s really like, and try to reach them on their own grounds.
I remember a picture on the front page of the ‘Sun’ during the Brixton riots: a rasta guy with a petrol bomb, and a headline saying something like: ‘The Future of Britain.’ And I thought: ‘Wow! Look at the power of that image,’ and I wanted to get behind the camera to make these people three-dimensional.
What is the use of good painting? We want a spell cast upon the optical part of our existence! We seldom really see the world, but when we do, we become as still as a picture.
When AI approximates Machine Intelligence, then many online and computer-run RPGs will move towards actual RPG activity. Nonetheless, that will not replace the experience of ‘being there,’ any more than seeing a theatrical motion picture can replace the stage play.
I am a bigger-picture manager because I’ve lived through something that’s a big picture.
I see all these posts saying, ‘I met Lewis Capaldi,’ and in the picture, I look like a melting hippo.
Everybody accuses me of moving fast when I direct a picture. I don’t move fast, but I just keep moving.
A conversation goes sometimes into personal things and that’s nicer. You look to each other and you have a different picture, you get into a relationship.
I seldom ever missed a Gary Cooper picture if I could manage to see it.
I really work. I like feeling that I’ve nailed it, and we’ve got the picture.
I, personally, think there is a really danger of taking food too seriously. Food should be part of the bigger picture.
Where I’m at in life, the women have got to come with something else, not just the body, but the mind and spirit. It usually trips them out, but that’s the way it’s going to be. I’m looking at the big picture.
I planted an orchard when I was 13. The impulse came from wanting to grow my own apples. That and the nursery catalog showed an apple tree with a beautiful girl standing under the fruit. Whether the flavor or the picture that did it, I’ve been hooked since.
I sincerely hope that I shall always be a credit to my race, and to the motion picture industry.
I can’t form a total picture of things. Because I’m not her.
Have a picture in mind of the kind of career you want, the kind of writer you want to be. This will help you make tough decisions when you reach crossroads – choosing an agent, deciding to accept deals.
I am impressed with what happens when someone stays in the same place and you took the same picture over and over and it would be different, every single frame.
People wonder why first-time directors can make a brilliant picture, then suck on the second one. It’s because they’re a little terrified the first time. So they listen to all the experts around them.
Players should know that if you can’t make the contribution of the winning shot, that your attitude every day when you come to practice, or the positive contribution you make through cheering and keeping up team morale, is just as important in the overall picture.
I’m always in my pajamas, unless I know for a fact that people are taking my picture.
With Connery, he does act. He is in complete command. He completely trusts the person first, then the instrument. I’ve worked with his son also, on a picture in Russia.
I did ‘Dirty Picture’ when I was only 24 years old. From there on, I kept on acting and learning about acting.
It’s nice to walk into a club and see your picture. Then you know you’ve done something good.
The ideal engine of a 3-D game is an intricate and elegant construct of code that allows players to speed through solidly built virtual worlds. The engine allows every picture on a monitor to be drawn there quickly enough to convince hand and eye that it is instantaneous.
For me, when I picture the person I want to end up with, I don’t think about what their career is, or what they look like. I picture the feeling I get when I’m with them.
There’s a picture of Christopher and the real Ken Titus and myself in my dressing room. He’s a great guy, by the way. I just think the real Ken is just super. And he’s so happy for his son’s success.
I enjoy photography. It’s a lot of fun. It keeps me on my P’s and Q’s and, when you think about it, most people think photography is just going to a game. But you start to think, dang, that would be a good picture. Or you’re driving along and see something and think, ‘that would be nice.’
For me, every photograph is a portrait; the clothes are just a vehicle for what I want to say. You’re photographing a relationship with the person you’re shooting; there’s an exchange, and that’s what that picture is.
When you think of couponing, you picture a mom cutting coupons out of the back of the newspaper.
I’m appalled the word feminism has been denigrated to a place of almost ridicule and I very passionately believe the word needs to be revalued and reintroduced with power and understanding that this is a global picture.
I learned you have to fight for yourself in the picture business.
I realise that I had the best of serious picture journalism. There was an innocence in our approach, especially in the 1950s and 1960s when we naively believed that by holding a mirror up to the world we could help – no matter how little – to make people aware of the human condition.
I always have a camera now that I’ve got a kid, but I don’t think I’ve got one picture of anyone other than my daughter.
Half of me is very excited and the other half is ‘Haven’t we seen this stuff before?’ But I’m very impressed. I almost couldn’t picture it when it was being put together. I couldn’t picture it being in my hand, what it would look like.
I grew up in Hollywood, California. A lot of my parents’ friends were in the motion picture industry, but I saw their doctor friends as more solid. I admired them; there was a peacefulness in them, a sense of purpose that I liked. So I became very interested in being a surgeon.
We live in capitalism, and capitalism is defined by the production line, and the production line is defined by specificity. If you see yourself as an artist, which I do, then you can’t be limited by that. You can’t let somebody tell you, ‘Well, you can only draw this kind of picture or write that kind of book.’
I had a very weird, very vivid dream. Donald Trump and I were in some kind of room. It was an office with pictures on the wall behind us, and we were standing next to each other posing for a picture.
I put the storyboard down and came back to it like two weeks later and saw that I had written ‘Butt-Head’ next to the picture, and it kind of made me laugh and I thought, Well, might as well go for every laugh you can get.
All of my friends are like, ‘Look at me when I was a little kid. I was so cute!’ and it’s a picture of them in a tutu. I’m so terrified to show them my pictures, because it’s me in boy shorts and a ponytail and my brother’s shirt.
Growing up, I was a giant KISS fan, and the truth is the record I had was ‘Rock and Roll Over,’ and there wasn’t even a clear picture of them in the packaging! So I really had no idea what they looked like; I just loved their music.
I did learn that there’s a bigger picture than just being the best at your sport.
I just thought it was magic that you could stick a bit of paper in some coffee-type liquid and a picture comes out.
Basically we just created our own label, but again we just did it to document our own music and create our own thing, so the major labels were just always out of our picture, we’re not interested.
I think it’s such a powerful thing: Words and melodies, and you put them together. I couldn’t really picture a world without music. It would be quite boring.
We have a picture for how complexity arises, because if the universe is computationally capable, maybe we shouldn’t be so surprised that things are so entirely out of control.
We in the FBI have created a malware repository and analysis tool known as the Binary Analysis Characterization and Storage System, or BACSS, which provides near real-time investigative information. BACSS helps us link malware in different jurisdictions and paint a picture of cyber threats worldwide.
I shall cheerfully bear the reproach of having descended below the dignity of history if I can succeed in placing before the English of the nineteenth century a true picture of the life of their ancestors.
Most novices picture themselves as masters – and are content with the picture. This is why there are so few masters.
As an actor, you really want to respect and honor the script. You want to try to be in the moment and you also realize that you’re one part of a bigger picture and when they call action, you have your dance.
When I think about the songs I might record, I ask myself, ‘Can I picture anybody I know back home sitting in their truck cranking this up?’
My brother was a great audience, and if he liked the picture, he would laugh and laugh and laugh, and he would want to keep the picture. Making people laugh with an image I had created… what power that was!
At the same time, new concepts and abstractions flow into the picture, taking up the task of describing the universe without reference to such time or space – abstractions for which our language lacks adequate terms.
I love to read and decorate – most things that people would not picture Sable doing.
And I remember that the editors wanted to have a witness to say that this was really the case, because it was a very sharp picture of the just the face, the head of the fetus inside the womb.
My paintings have gotten to be pretty popular and I’ve taken a little bit more interest in painting the last few years. In fact, my novel that I wrote not too long ago, ‘The Hornet’s Nest,’ I painted the cover picture for it and I do a good bit of painting now.
I think I’m always adopting a persona. That’s how I look at pop music. I don’t feel like I have to be myself. I feel like I have to be true to myself, but I don’t have to show an exact picture of who I am.
I heard we’ll get you a pass because we know you’re married to a black woman. You’re married to a sister so we’ll give you that pass but also, those who know me but also if they look at the body of work, it is the bigger picture.
A picture is a poem without words.
The most happy marriage I can picture or imagine to myself would be the union of a deaf man to a blind woman.
I think that commercials can really ruin a song. You know that the person sold the song for a good deal of money, and that was the tradeoff. But, music and picture can marry in a beautiful way, and the reverse also.
Beauty is in the character of a person. It’s about having an interesting face and about what’s inside. Anyone can take a good picture.
I did a picture for the First Barbie doll box.
The big picture doesn’t just come from distance; it also comes from time.
Humor expands our limited picture frame and gets us to see more than just our problem.
The technology is really where all of the changes have taken place, but the fundamentals of a good story being the basis of every good picture, and really the only basis still remains the rule, more so today, I think, because we’ve unfortunately weaned an audience from birth to kind of mindless movies.
The big picture is the Trials and Olympics. I just have to keep focused for that, keep moving forward.
I always have a good reason for taking something out but I never have one for putting something in. And I don’t want to, because that means that the picture is being painted predigested.
I think that one of the things that I can do is I seem to have the ability to zoom in super tight for very small details, but then jump back for sort of that big picture perspective. And I think that ultimately, that’s one of my strengths, because you have – every detail matters.
I put little goals in place every day, and I think if you can kind of keep to the small things it’s easier to capture the big picture at the end.
I don’t picture myself as a normal person when I play football, and I don’t think anyone else pictures me that way as well.
Every soldier must know, before he goes into battle, how the little battle he is to fight fits into the larger picture, and how the success of his fighting will influence the battle as a whole.
And even Moonstruck – for some reason the audience were just in the mood for a very romantic film, because it’s one of the few romantic comedies to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar.
I’m the type of person who would rather stay home than get my picture taken.
Press freedom has great virtues. It is not about irresponsible scandal-mongering, although that may be part of the picture. It is a means of revealing wrongdoing.
I’m never on Twitter. I’m never on Instagram. And that’s not by choice: it’s just that those things never really interested me. I might post a picture here and there, but that ain’t really been my focus.
Art consists of limitation. The most beautiful part of every picture is the frame.
When the news is good, the BBC view is: ‘Get the government out of the picture quickly, don’t allow them to say anything about it.’ When the news is bad: ‘Let’s all dump on the government.’
I don’t like food that’s too carefully arranged; it makes me think that the chef is spending too much time arranging and not enough time cooking. If I wanted a picture I’d buy a painting.
As long as designers want to dress me, photographers want to take my picture and companies think my face will help their products, then I won’t go anywhere until they’re done with me.
I mean, if you asked me what I’m going to be doing when I’m 85, I’d make a quick picture in my mind and, well, I’ll be singing.
Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world. Constantly color your picture gray, and your picture will always be bleak. Try adding some bright colors to the picture by including humor, and your picture begins to lighten up.
We must get into the picture business. This is a new industry and a gold mine. it looks like another telephone industry.
I believe that nationalism is a very strong force, but there are other forces operating; there are tendencies pushing towards a larger picture, especially in Europe, I think; but I still think nationalism is real.
No, I had the Levis guy on my wall, not a picture of William, sorry.
We’re not just being dramatic talking about a human extinction – that’s the pathway we’re on. We have to look at the bigger picture. If your child had cancer and it was unlikely they were going to survive, you’d do everything in your power to fight it.
I don’t have to run the Peace Corps. I could live without seeing my picture in the newspapers and without being interviewed.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
I’m a shadow whisperer: I hide in the shadows. And I tend to avoid places where I might get photographed and end up with my picture in the press.
If you ever see The Rock working out in the gym, don’t think you can just go up and disturb his workout and expect him to take a picture. He’s there to work, so kindly just pass the silverback on by or he’ll rip your face off.
The illustrations in picture books are the first paintings most children see, and because of that, they are incredibly important. What we see and share at that age stays with us for life.
A picture book is a small door to the enormous world of the visual arts, and they’re often the first art a young person sees.
It’s really sort of morbid, but she said her mother wanted to see me all her life. And when she died, she made just one request: that a picture of me be put into her casket. So somewhere in England, I’m in a casket.
Being a motion picture actress is the pitch of ecstasy.
I have likened writing a novel to going on a journey, with some notion of the destination I will arrive at, but not the whole picture – which emerges gradually as a series of revelations, as the journey goes along.
Early on, I found the attention completely embarrassing. I’d cringe if I saw my picture on the cover of a magazine.
Seeing the bigger picture opens your eyes to what is the truth.
I guarantee you that two directors that are any good can take the same story, change the name of the characters, change the name of the town, and make an entirely different picture.
When I was 17 I sent a picture up to an agency, and within a week I was in The Sun five days in a row.
When I stop working, I go out and start working again. Most people paint a picture, or whatever they do, and go home. For me, it has to be continuous.
We are all captives of the picture in our head – our belief that the world we have experienced is the world that really exists.
I was walking around with the babies so much that when I got to the Sidney Lumet picture, I would be on set in between takes and I’d be rocking back and forth. Just standing like this rocking back and forth, and Sidney would say, Why are you walking like that in between takes?
Men will shop, but they only shop when they need something. Women shop with passion and because it’s enjoyable, and for some, it’s even entertainment. All you have to do is step into a mall and see how many stores are geared towards men and how many are geared towards women, and you’ll get the picture.
To sum it all up: It was a great picture to do; I just wish it had never been released.
When we are out there selling a new picture, when did it become part of the deal that you have to sell the family? To use the juicy part of your life to get attention? I’m not blaming the reporters. It’s the system.
I’ve been in beautiful landscapes where one is tempted to whip out a camera and take a picture. I’ve learned to resist that.
Your characters have to remain innocent of what your picture is after.
It’s not an epitaph. I felt I could look back at my life and get a good story out of it. It’s a picture of somebody trying to figure things out. I’m not trying to create some impression about myself. That doesn’t interest me.
I understand what it can feel like when people are bullying you, and you can’t just seem to catch a break, and people don’t see who you are. And people completely paint their own picture. And you’re supposed to zip it and just go along with whatever they say.
Atmosphere, not action, is the great desideratum of weird fiction. Indeed, all that a wonder story can ever be is a vivid picture of a certain type of human mood.
There are hundreds of books about Woodrow Wilson, but I have an image of him in my mind that is unlike any picture I have seen anywhere else, based on material at Princeton and 35 years of researching and thinking about him.
I don’t have an interest in any car that isn’t good for the environment, other than maybe an aesthetic quality in a picture book.
I think ‘Lost Boy’ is more of a metaphor for oneself. When I listen to that song, I don’t picture someone else. I kind of wrote it from a very honest place.
Know what you’re trying to do before you do it. Turning knobs at random isn’t enlightening any more than throwing paint at a wall blindfolded will let you paint a nice picture.
I had done my first picture and I didn’t have anything to do for awhile. I was asked to come back to New York and do Bus Stop in the role of the cowboy opposite Kim Stanley.
Actually, the camera was never overhead at any time. It was always a side view of me. Subsequently, after the picture was released, I saw some scenes from above and my clothes being pulled-and I think that was added later.
When in doubt, wear a suit. Look at male politicians: you see them in a suit, and they look fine. But if you see a picture of them on the weekend or on vacation, there’s a good chance they look terrible and unstylish.
If you could draw a picture of the best high school in the world – where all the teachers are wonderful and all the classrooms are beautiful, it would be my high school.
If you look at the big picture, you start losing your focus on the little things.
I met a lot of young girls modelling and they were like, ‘Oh, I’m running around town and people are taking my picture’, while I was saving receipts and learning how to be self-employed.
The movements which I make I cannot possibly repress because, at the time, I am actually the idea I am interpreting, and naturally I picture my players and auditors as in accord with me. I know, of course, that my mannerisms have been widely discussed.
I maintain that if you’re a novelist and you go into an art museum, you’ll come out a better novelist. And if you paint a picture for an hour you’re a better actor at the end of it.
My dream concept is that I have a camera and I am trying to photograph what is essentially invisible. And every once in a while I get a glimpse of her and I grab that picture.
In France we have a law which doesn’t allow the press to publish a photo that you didn’t approve. It lets the paparazzi take the picture, but if they publish this picture, you have the choice to sue the newspaper. So me, I always sued them.
Wrestling needs to be about the art form again. It needs to be about painting a picture and having a really good match.
You always have to be on at times, and occasionally people get upset if you say no to a picture when you’re eating dinner or something, and that’s kind of the hard part. Or if you get crazy rumors that swirl around you from time to time that are just silly.
The picture of Prince Charles meeting Gerry Adams is inexpressibly sad.
The hard part is how to plan a picture so as to give to others what has happened to you. To render in paint an experience, to suggest the sense of light and color, of air and space.
I start a picture and I finish it.
When I’m singing a song, I picture somebody in particular. A lot of it is to a guy.
In most films music is brought in at the end, after the picture is more or less locked, to amplify the emotions the filmmaker wants you to feel.
I think words come between the spectator and the picture.
Painting picture by picture, I followed the impressions my eye took in at heightened moments. I painted only memories, adding nothing, no details that I did not see. Hence the simplicity of the paintings, their emptiness.
I would sooner play in a good British picture than in the majority of American pictures I have seen.
I think in every picture that I’ve ever made. Everything that I’ve done torments me. I really would like another chance except I’d be too embarrassed to ever really try to do them again and no one would want to see the same movie just done differently.
I cannot tell you much about the picture- it depends on so many things, the first of which that comes to my mind is: splendid as he is, is there too much of Spencer Tracy.
Places are part of nature, of the bigger picture. We are interrelated. When we contemplate them in their own right, they can sometimes change our lives; they can become spiritual experiences.
The model today is that as much as 70 percent of the financing of the picture would come from overseas. Now we’re beginning to run out of suckers, because there are not that many people overseas who are willing to put up more than half the money for a movie.
As a midfielder, you have to have vision. If you see an opening that might create an opportunity, you have to believe in yourself and go for it; a 40-yard pass or an eye-of-the-needle ball. You have to feel you are going to make it. That’s the way I play. I have a picture in my mind, and I go for it.
Quite often I can be in a bookshop, standing beneath a great big picture of myself and paying for a book with a credit card clearly marked John Grisham, yet no one recognises me. I often say I’m a famous author in a country where no one reads.
I believe human beings mark a threshold in the development of the planet, of course, but it is only part of the picture. What Big History can do is show us the nature of our complexity and fragility and the dangers that face us, but it can also show us our power, with collective learning.
I know of no scholar more dedicated to bringing a thorough and accurate portrayal of America’s involvement in Vietnam than Mark Moyar. Everyone who is interested in a full picture of that oft-misunderstood war should be grateful for his effort.
Always point your finger at the chest of the person with whom you are being photographed. You will appear dynamic. And no photo editor can crop you from the picture.
More and more people are seeing the films on computers – lousy sound, lousy picture – and they think they’ve seen the film, but they really haven’t.
Every picture has been a learning opportunity for me.
I usually create sounds and have different generators running over it. You know you can open a word-file as a picture or the other way round. I do the same with sounds.
I saw Tequila Sunrise as a romantic picture with complex, bigger than life characters.
The days, months, and years eventually reveal, like a Polaroid, a clear picture of how significant events and decisions ultimately shape our lives.
People take the little bit of information they’re fed, and they draw a picture of who you are. Most of the time, it’s wrong.
My friend Quincy Jones says we won our first Grammys together in 1963. I have no recollection. I don’t even remember the room. When he showed me the picture, I remembered what I wore. But it’s like awards don’t mean anything.
I have had fans make me the big picture collages of the photo books; I have had fans send me birthday cakes… sing to me on my voicemail. I have had fans flash me. I have had older fans give me their bras and underwear onstage.
‘The Lion’ all began with a picture of a faun carrying an umbrella and parcels in a snowy wood. This picture had been in my mind since I was about sixteen. Then one day, when I was about forty, I said to myself, ‘Let’s try to make a story about it.’
I’d like to think a baseball picture is somewhere in my future.
Natalie’s estate is handled by Global Icons, and they police the world so her picture isn’t on a T-shirt or coffee cup unless we approve of it.
Women are not in love with me but with the picture of me on the screen. I am merely the canvas on which women paint their dreams.
So is civil society prepared for the future? Probably not. Most organisations have to live hand to mouth, juggling short-term funding and perpetual minor crises. Even the bigger ones rarely get much time to stand back and look at the bigger picture. Many are on a treadmill chasing after contracts and new funding.
As soon as people see my face on a movie screen, they knew two things: first, I’m not going to get the girl, and second, I’ll get a cheap funeral before the picture is over.
Now they call in all of the authority figures they can find and hire them – the cost has gone up. The picture may or may not get better, but definitely, it gets more cumbersome.
Media reporting denied privacy to anybody doing what I do for a living. It was no longer possible to work on your picture in privacy.
Tech companies approach you to hold something in a picture and then say, ‘This is what I want you to write on your Twitter.’ There are people who get away with that and look really cool doing it, but I’m just not one of them.
As leaders, we become whole when we see that our focused, singular commitment to making the numbers and the metrics cannot be effective on its own, but only when it is part of the whole picture – only when we see that it takes more than metrics to make up the whole.
It takes me about two hours to run into Target. People always want a picture. They hem and haw, and they can’t spit the words out, so they waste about five minutes of my time just standing there getting ready for a picture. Just do it!
I feel like the quality of privacy and respect of people’s personal space has been completely disintegrated. You can ask to take the picture. I will be so glad to take the picture and pose and look good for the picture.
In hip-hop, as in neoliberalism, economics bullied politics out of the picture.
The creative artist seems to be almost the only kind of man that you could never meet on neutral ground. You can only meet him as an artist. He sees nothing objectively because his own ego is always in the foreground of every picture.
Regardless of whether you speak the language or are familiar with a culture, the picture should hold up.
That was one of the great successes of removing Saddam Hussein, as we took Iraq out of the picture of having a sovereign nation from which the terrorists could operate. But this war has not gone perfectly.
I do not believe the picture that some people paint of Scottish towns dependent on welfare. Every time I come here, I meet people who are determined to get into work. Who, with the right help are desperate to get off benefits, support their family and set an example for their children.
The only thing Martha and I have in common is that we both used to model. Martha Stewart is extremely talented. Her designs are picture perfect. Our philosophy is life is messy, and rather than being afraid of those messes we design products that work the way we live.
For sure, all over Poland, kids had my picture of a lemur on their bedroom wall – but the chances are they may never get to see a real lemur in Madagascar. I thought this was great and it really meant a lot to me.
I saw a picture of Elvis in blue lame, and thought that if I could recreate that suit and walk down the King’s Road in it, someone might pick me up and take me off on a crazy adventure.
I’m always looking for a kind of new musical entity to sort of move into a motion picture venue.
I don’t believe in careers. I believe in work. I’m not interested in some ‘big picture that would be really good for me’.
Actually, I’m not all that interested in the subject of photography. Once the picture is in the box, I’m not all that interested in what happens next. Hunters, after all, aren’t cooks.
If you like a wine that you drink, now with your phone, it’s so easy. Just take a picture of the label. You learn about it. You learn where it comes from and what the soil is like and why you like it. And that’ll lead you to another wine.
U.S. Government propaganda tries to give the impression that aerial bombardment achieves near-surgical accuracy, so that military targets can be destroyed with minimal effect on civilians. Technical documents give a different picture.
Drawing a good picture is like telling a really good lie – the key is in the incidental detail.
I kept the same suit for six years and the same dialogue. They just changed the title of the picture and the leading lady.
You always want to play for your national team whenever you can, so hopefully I can keep my form up and be in the picture.
The economic picture in the States today doesn’t allow for jazz concerts in a tour fashion. People now are too used to the Festival, which gives them more names for the same price.
It’s New York City, you want to be shown in Times Square. you want your picture there. You want those kind of things. To inspire people, that’s really what it’s about.
We also have to make sure our children know the history of women. Tell them the rotten truth: It wasn’t always possible for women to become doctors or managers or insurance people. Let them be armed with a true picture of the way we want it to be.
Men are recognizing that they have been forced to conform to a very narrow and rather two-dimensional picture of maleness and manhood that they have never had the freedom to question.
I am a huge admirer of Elizabeth I, and this intriguing biography gives a wonderful picture of the era.
I know dock leaves pretty well, but I should not attempt to introduce them into a picture without having them before me.
You go down some street – no doubt it’s there, and we have to do something about it, and our programmes are designed to do that – but if that’s a picture of Newcastle, it’s not the one I recognise and I bet none in the North East do either.
I think the motion picture industry is a stupid business and I despise acting the scenes in short snatches, one at a time. I hate this film work. I am disgusted with myself. On the stage I could never play a part unless I felt it with all my heart and soul.
An actor would be foolish to do something that might hold up the picture, or more importantly incapacitate him. If an actor does do a stunt he needs to make sure a stunt man stands by to see that it’s done correctly.
I enjoy trying to figure out the best way to compliment the picture and not overpower it.
Your purpose is to make your audience see what you saw, hear what you heard, feel what you felt. Relevant detail, couched in concrete, colorful language, is the best way to recreate the incident as it happened and to picture it for the audience.
I landed a job with Roger Corman. The job was to write the English dialogue for a Russian science fiction picture. I didn’t speak any Russian. He didn’t care whether I could understand what they were saying; he wanted me to make up dialogue.
I think my wife saw a picture of the rock group Journey, and they’re kind of aging, and the one guy had dyed blonde hair with black roots, and… my idea was to get a little earring, I wanted to have a dangling earring.
Sliding headfirst is the safest way to get to the next base, I think, and the fastest. You don’t lose your momentum, and there’s one more important reason I slide headfirst, it gets my picture in the paper.
My father? I never knew him. Never even seen a picture of him.
I no longer look at my life and times in the motion picture industry as my career. I just look at it now as something I like and want to do.
There’s this index that tallies up how much your movies have made, and if they haven’t grossed a certain amount, then you’re not bankable. I know I’m not Will Smith but, you know, my ranking’s pretty low. The only studio picture I’ve done is ‘Zodiac,’ and that didn’t perform that well.
And they talk about their bona fide doctors. They have a list of doctors that signed affidavits from looking at a picture of Terry. That’s where they get their information from, by looking at a picture.
I realize that I had the best of serious picture journalism.
Making a pretty picture, an image, is a completely different thing from acting to camera.
I really like science because it seems to be that place where you get the big picture, everything connects.
They shaved my head, eyebrows. This is not a sci-fi picture. It’s not a fantasy picture. You’re dealing with something that’s supposed to be in reality. But we had a genius makeup artist.
If the picture needs varnishing later, I allow a restorer to do that, if there’s any restoring necessary.
I knew when my career was over. In 1965 my baseball card came out with no picture.
Many of the articles printed over the last few months have ended up painting a picture of me that is more than a little distorted.
I know I didn’t like that dress ’cause it didn’t fit but I thought it was a great picture. We weren’t the first band to do a picture in drag; The Rolling Stones were. If it was good enough for them then it had to be good enough for us.
I associate my motion picture career more with being unhappy and scared, or being under the gun, than with anything pleasant.
I took it upon myself to paint a better picture of rural life and what it is all about.
For ninety per cent of those who view him from outside, the Christian God looks like a great landowner administering his estates, the world. Now this conventional picture, which is too well justified by appearances, corresponds in no way to the dogmatic basis or point of view of the Gospels.
People have to understand what my game is. It’s not all about numbers. There’s a bigger picture here. I don’t create off the dribble. I rely on my teammates; my role is to set screens and get rebounds.
Everything in my career is my decision – every picture, every outfit. You get one chance at this, and I never saw myself as being a puppet.
I saw a picture of myself when I came out of the hospital. I didn’t recognize myself.
There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.
A small silence came between us, as precise as a picture hanging on the wall.
Our dog died from licking our wedding picture.
The picture is a self-sufficient work of art. It is not connected to anything outside.
I’ve always put a lot of stock in aesthetics and visuals. I truly believe a picture is worth a thousand words and that fashion and glamour have the power to transport and transform someone.
I was astounded to learn that Alaskan caves might be hiding secrets about the earliest people ever to enter the Americas. That’s when I began to picture a story that would start with kayaking and lead into the caves.
I’m not someone who likes to have my picture taken, let alone see it plastered all over the place.
By 1951, television had already made such inroads on the income garnered by motion picture companies that the Golden Era which had prevailed until then was beginning to disintegrate. And by 1953, it had come to an end. Hollywood was a dismal, tragic place.
I follow the director’s lead because they generally know more about the big picture, but I also trust that the director will give me enough freedom to play.
If you paint in your mind a picture of bright and happy expectations, you put yourself into a condition conducive to your goal.
Everything rational and sensible abandons me when I try to throw out photographs. Time and time again, I hold one over a wastebasket, and then find it impossible to release my fingers and let the picture drop and disappear.
I feel like if I can help somebody look at money differently or manage their finances differently or spend a little differently, then I feel like I’m doing my job. So I’ll try to help them see the bigger picture and think longevity versus the temporary spending that we’re kind of accustomed to.
To say of a picture, as is often said in its praise, that it shows great and earnest labour, is to say that it is incomplete and unfit for view.
A picture is worth a thousand words. An interface is worth a thousand pictures.
