If a scene is three pages long, quite often people break it up and do a page, say ‘cut’ then move on to the next bit, they do it in cuts. I don’t really like doing that; I like to go through it all in one organic run, then give notes afterward. A little bit more like theater.

I love video games. I’m also slightly in awe of them. I’m in awe of their power in terms of imagination, in terms of technology, in terms of concept.

Of course you can’t ‘trust’ what people tell you on the web anymore than you can ‘trust’ what people tell you on megaphones, postcards or in restaurants. Working out the social politics of who you can trust and why is, quite literally, what a very large part of our brain has evolved to do.
The habit of breaking up one’s colour to make it brilliant dates from further back than Impressionism – Couture advocates it in a little book called ‘Causeries d’Atelier’ written about 1860 – it is part of the technique of Impressionism but used for quite a different reason.

Go on thinking that you don’t need to be read and you’ll find that it may become quite true: no one will feel the need tom read it because it is written for yourself alone; and the public won’t feel any impulse to gate crash such a private party.
‘The Ballad of Black Tom’ was written, in part, during the latest round of arguments about H. P. Lovecraft’s legacy as both a great writer and a prejudiced man. I grew up worshipping the guy, so this issue felt quite personal to me.

I think quite spiritually of myself. I feel like I’m here to support the human evolution.

II’m quite a successful musician, but I’m not sure if it’s my vocation.

I dream of working with iconic directors such as Tim Burton, Baz Luhrmann, Terry Gilliam and Wes Anderson – so I’m setting my sights pretty high! My perfect role would be in a fairy-tale period piece, and I’m quite upset all the Harry Potter movies have been made as I’d love to have been in those.

The standing ovation threw me… to be held in such regard in a town so full of talent is quite something.

It’s quite strange looking down the list of players who’ve won the young player award in the past and then thinking I’m in there too now. There’s some great names like Ryan Giggs, Craig Bellamy – and I can’t miss out Chris Gunter – and it’s a big boost to be included.

I am quite a down-to-earth person.
The idea of the sacred is quite simply one of the most conservative notions in any culture, because it seeks to turn other ideas – uncertainty, progress, change – into crimes.
I was quite shy. I found my way, I suppose, with food. It’s a confidence builder. How else in life do you get that opportunity for someone to say to you, ‘Wow, that’s really great’? You put food in front of someone and, ‘Ahhh, I really enjoyed that!’ It’s a lift.
It is often quite impossible to gauge the mood of the Chamber in advance, particularly on big occasions. One moment, it is relaxed and good-humoured; at the next, it can be angry and querulous, and the House in this mood can be a formidable arena.
Quite a few operas are still being commissioned around the world, although nothing apart from audience popularity can ensure more than a few performances.

Civil disobedience has an honourable history, and when the urgency and moral clarity cross a certain threshold, then I think that civil disobedience is quite understandable, and it has a role to play.

I was actually quite surprised how many more mythologies there are about mermaids than the ones our society knows. I was so pleasantly surprised for ‘Siren’ to add quite an original idea to that: One that is a predator. One that is very intelligent but still has to survive in the ocean with all of its challenges.
When I was in grade five or six, I just remember quite a lot of people were always talking about me like I was some kind of math genius. And there were just so many moments when I realized, like, okay, why can’t I just be like some normal person and go have a 75% average like everyone else.

When you’re making a psychological thriller, what you need to do is have an audience on shifting sand so they’re never quite sure where they are.
I said I’m going to vote for Hillary. But my philosophy is that everything’s workable. If Trump is president, I’ll work with that guy. I don’t know if he’s terrible or what. He’s refreshing in that he doesn’t speak in that political way. I don’t quite understand why everybody hates Hillary so much.
Being voted the world’s sexiest vegetarian is about as cool as it gets. It’s not quite as cool as Brad Pitt, but it’ll do.

I think that I am lucky and blessed to have the job that I have, and I am trying to create longevity. If that means that I transition into different things at different points in my life, then that’s fine. I also believe that if doors don’t open, make new doors, so I’ve also started producing quite a bit of things.
I find it quite hard to sum up my relationship in a sound bite. I feel that it trivializes it for other people’s pleasure. It’s an adventure.

It’s not just the kid who’s spent every penny from his job to upgrade his car to tell the world he cares about sports cars, it’s also the person driving around in a fuel-conscious hybrid electric car, because it’s more a message to the world than an effective means of saving fuel, to be quite honest.
I’m in this absolutely gorgeous manor house with acres of quite beautiful countryside. I’ve got trout in the river, an organic vegetable garden, I’ve got my work 40 yards from my home. I don’t mind being criticised, but where are they criticising from? Which hut are they criticising me from, exactly?
My father is a poet. He’s a literary giant of this country – writes in Hindi – and also quite unique because he has a Ph.D. in English Literature. He taught at Harvard University, which is one of the most prominent universities in the country.

Today in Ukraine, many people struggle to survive, older ones often see the breakdown of the Soviet system as a loss of stability and security for average people, and therefore a certain hostility to quickly acquired wealth is from their point of view quite understandable at the first look.
We need to quit arguing about whether the glass is half full or half empty – and instead acknowledge that there’s not quite enough water to go around.
I do all my work by storyboard, so as I draw the storyboard, the world gets more and more complex, and as a result, my North, South, East, West directions kind of shift and go off base, but it seems like my staff as well as the audience, doesn’t quite realize that this has happened. Don’t tell them about it.
When I think about it, it is quite crazy to race against people like Fernando Alonso, when I remember watching him from the balcony in Monaco.
When a movie is being rolled out, the studio publicists and all our individual publicists get together and come up with bullet points and talking points – ‘Make sure you stay away from this,’ and ‘Don’t say that quite that way, because that quote can be taken out of context,’ and that kind of thing.
It’s funny. People often compare me to other humor essayists. They’re usually quite nice comparisons; I will accept those gladly. But I am always sort of appalled at the idea of being lumped with other, more chick-y female writers. And the truth is probably that neither comparison is accurate.
I play with a lot of intensity, and I’m quite strong in man-marking.

To be a Hottie you gotta have a lot of self-love, a lot of confidence, you gotta be able to put your foot down. Hotties are supposed to turn other people into Hotties too. If you see someone that’s not quite confident, you gotta be the Hottie to gas up your friend.
To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world.

I’ve spent most of my life trying to wear a persona that didn’t quite fit and when I started writing books, it was like finally becoming the right person.

For every successful actor or actress, there are countless numbers who don’t make it. The name of the game is rejection.

I do not truly consider myself an icon, but the Cube has been quite successful.

And I like the look on people’s faces when I say I’m doing this movie called Pride and Prejudice and they kind of smile, and then I say I’m in a movie called Doom and they kind of do a double take and try and put the two things together. And they never quite manage to.
The case is I talk for a living, so I should be able to say anything I want to say regardless of how you feel. What we’re starting to deal with now is your opinion matters, but to be quite honest, your opinion means nothing.

I never imagined I could make it to the top of Mount Everest at age 80. This is the world’s best feeling, although I’m totally exhausted. Even at 80, I can still do quite well.
It was irritating to have one’s physical shortcomings pointed out quite so plainly twice in one evening, once by a beautiful girl and once by a dying badger.
Well, a daughter is someone you’ve grown up with, right? So you know her temperament, you know what makes her angry and how to deal with that person. You’re meeting your daughter-in-law when she is an adult already and you don’t quite know what her temperament is like, so it takes time to gel.
I don’t think that you can fake warmth. You can fake lust, jealousy, anger; those are all quite easy. But actual, genuine warmth? I don’t think you can fake it.
My personal tastes… I actually like quite a bit acoustic and more mellow kinds of things. I quite like American music, like The Fray, I’m a massive fan of them, and The Killers.
That Lana Del Rey is quite cute, isn’t she? I quite like her.
I don’t like to be too submissive in the way I dress. I like quite boyish things, so I hardly ever wear high heels.
No poet or novelist wishes he were the only one who ever lived, but most of them wish they were the only one alive, and quite a number fondly believe their wish has been granted.
I’m terrified about the world food shortages. Vegetables could quite easily become tomorrow’s currency.
Fishing is quite a good metaphor for life. You do your prep, you do your thinking, you put your bait out, and you wait, confident that you’ve done your groundwork. But a lot of life is luck.
I’ll cry anywhere because I can do it quite subtly. Walking, that’s a good time to have a cry.
In some cases, I quite like irritating people who need to be irritated.
Honestly, I feel like I spent the last 10 years just trying to work, just get my hands on the best material I could. I’d like to say that it was quite calculated and genius, my ability to take one step forward and two steps back.
I saw Al Foster with Miles Davis the other week. It was beautiful. But, the whole thing was, Al Foster played as well as everybody else, but all of them were quite brilliant under Miles Davis’ direction.
I’m a much healthier eater and I’ve lost quite a bit of weight over the years.
The idea of collaborating with anyone else was quite daunting. If Battles had any trepidation in asking me, I can assure you I had more after agreeing to do it.
My mother was quite poorly. She suffered from bipolar disorder, which at that time was called manic depression. She spent a lot of time in psychiatric hospitals, and my father was away a lot with the RAF and then with his job in civil aviation, so I was raised in part by my sisters and my godmother, Sylvia.
Words cannot express quite a lot of feelings, whereas a noise or tone or drone or sound, an accordion falling down a staircase, can somehow capture an emotion much better.
In ‘There’s Something About Mary’ and ‘Dumb & Dumber,’ I ended up improvising quite a bit of my scenes, and later I didn’t even remember what I’d said because I just winged it. When I went and saw the movie, I was as stunned as everyone else was.
If you wait for customers to tell you that you need to do something, you’re too late. Good business leaders should be half a step ahead of what customers want, i.e. they don’t actually quite know they want it. That’s what innovation’s about. With Plan A, we didn’t wait for the consumers to tell us.
Even though I am fantastic looking, I am still quite intelligent.
The voice will guide you-will tell you what to do. In order to do that, you must be quite sensitive with the instrument and accept this daily conversation with your voice.
My career is not well thought out. Every choice has been instinctive and, quite literally, impulsive in many ways.
My creative process is quite slow. I hear melodies in my head while I’m washing the dishes and I allow my subconscious to do the work.
When I played God Bless The Queen, I was wondering if they was gonna dig us, then quite naturally I’d go on and try to get it together.
I studied graphic design originally. I used to like drawing, and I was quite into technical drawing. I was always interested in the visual medium, but I thought I was going to be an architect or something like that, but it’s quite a lonely job.
I just never, ever want to give up. Most battles are won in the 11th hour, and most people give up. If you give up once, it’s quite hard. If you give up a second time, it’s a little bit easier. Give up a third time, it’s starting to become a habit.
When I was a child, I wanted to be a jockey. I love horses, but it’s not practical to have one in London. I also wanted to be an accountant, which isn’t glamorous at all, but my dad was one, and I quite liked maths.
London does two things for me: it makes me feel connected, and it also makes me feel very isolated and quite lonely at times, and that’s someone with two children in their family.
I’ve been devoting quite a bit of my time to harmonic studies on my own, in libraries and places like that. I’ve found you’ve got to look back at the old things and see them in a new light.
You’re never quite prepared for the inundation of stardom, or whatever you want to call it.
I have a really strong opponent in Randy Orton. A former multi-time world champion. He’s held just about every title under the sun. And he’s done it all in a major way. He’s basically wreaked havoc and ran roughshod over the WWE for quite some time. Some people might forget that.
I got into trouble a while ago for saying that I thought the internet led to increased literacy – people scolded me about the shocking grammar to be found online – but I was talking about fundamentals: quite simply, you can’t use the net unless you can read.
My mother was the greatest example to me of anyone I’ve ever known. She didn’t have an easy life. I adored her. She worked hard all her life, and she was the one who set my values. She was quite an amazing woman, although she wasn’t tough at all.
I am a camera with its shutter open, quite passive, recording, not thinking.
If you have the door to your office closed, you get more work done today and tomorrow, and you are more productive than most. But ten years later somehow, you don’t quite know what problems are worth working on.
On the whole, I have quite a low opinion of men.
We can write idiots quite well.
I’m quite an optimist, quite happy in life, quite smiley.
We’re living in a high-tech world. So much of our stimulus and entertainment comes from things that are quite abstract and disembodied.
And there are no stars and that you’re never really sure who’s doing what and what voice is what and, you know what I mean? It’s supposed to be quite elusive.
I did go through a phase where I played videogames quite often, but I haven’t in a few years.
Unquestionably, it was going to be highly dangerous. Yet I felt it was quite natural to jump at the task. After all, if you don’t like action and excitement, you don’t go into police work. And, what the hell, I figured, nobody lives forever!
It’s quite nice to see that I didn’t have to change who I was to reach two very different types of people.
A sympathetic friend can be quite as dear as a brother.
This taught me a lesson, but I’m not quite sure what it is.
Quite frankly, teachers are the only profession that teach our children.
Heath Ledger’s performance in ‘The Dark Knight’ quite simply changed the game. He raised the bar not just for actors in superhero films, but young actors everywhere; for me. His performance was dark, anarchic, dizzying, free, and totally, thrillingly, dangerous.
A shoe is not only a design, but it’s a part of your body language, the way you walk. The way you’re going to move is quite dictated by your shoes.
My mother is quite a woman. She would push me, and when I got tired of her pushing, I’d say: ‘Leave me alone. Don’t push so much.’
Fascism, the more it considers and observes the future and the development of humanity, quite apart from political considerations of the moment, believes neither in the possibility nor the utility of perpetual peace.
We now have the Black Lives Matter movement. I find that curious because this country is not quite the melting pot it’s purported to be. Black lives are unknown in some pla’ces.
Explorations into chemistry were done in our basement, sometimes with friends, and my parents must have had quite a bit of confidence in my abilities when they allowed me to experiment with explosive mixtures.
I have an image of Shanghai, which is quite different from other directors, I think. The story of Shanghai should happen in back alleys.
The Americans love Aussies, but they’re actually quite afraid of us at the same time because they think we’re insane. Then they see our sports – league, union, and AFL – and that makes them even more worried.
Asking questions is what brains were born to do, at least when we were young children. For young children, quite literally, seeking explanations is as deeply rooted a drive as seeking food or water.
When I’m working on something, if I went to an exhibition of an artist I respect, then I usually come home quite depressed and look at what I’m doing and throw it all away and start again.
Man’s unhappiness, as I construe, comes of his greatness; it is because there is an Infinite in him, which with all his cunning he cannot quite bury under the Finite.
All my life I’ve felt quite misunderstood because of my personality.
Usually when I’m making a movie, what I have in mind first, for the visuals, is how we can stage the scenes to bring them more to life in the most interesting way, and then how we can make a world for the story that the audience hasn’t quite been in before.
Transgender casting is a kind of literalism. It is the same with racial casting. This means that you can now only play Othello if you are black. There is something quite tainted about it. It is a form of racism in itself.
I mean, I went to a Catholic boys’ school for a year, but that was to play hockey. Religion class was quite contentious for me.
I’m quite contradictory – a bit OCD, but quite untidy. I have piles of stuff everywhere, but they make sense to me. And I’ll find the one thing in the room that’s my boyfriend’s, and complain about him leaving it out.
Along the borders to Ethiopia and Somalia, anarchy reigns, the police and military have retreated quite some distance.
I wanted to be a veterinarian and go to school in Boston. It didn’t quite work out that way, and I ended up joining the Navy as a suggestion of my big brother. It was really awesome – and I didn’t realize it at the time, -but provided a lot of leadership and followership teamwork opportunities.
I was a sickly child, and it wasn’t until I was 19 that I realised I was quite a robust, vigorous person. Since then I’ve taken ill health to be an irritating interruption into what is a fairly reliable stream of good health.
I saw ‘The Exorcist’ at the cinema when I was quite young, maybe 14. When I went back home, my mum and dad weren’t in, so I had to wait for them on the main road. I were too scared to enter the house.
I’m one of those parents who are quite careful about documenting their children’s upbringing. I really try to actively observe. I write down the little things that happen.
I am not saying I am the best manager in the world. But I’m quite good.
The main reason for our achievements is teamwork. It’s quite simply the group of people that are here at Red Bull Racing and Red Bull Technology working as one unit.
At the beginning of the season, you’re still getting your fitness levels up, and those first few games are quite tough.
There is nothing quite like a freshly brewed pot of tea to get you going in the morning.
Quite often, I will do something and think, ‘Oh, no, she looks a little too much like me.’ I have tried to learn not to be afraid of that when that happens. I am not trying to obliterate myself and completely hide within the images like I used to.
Because of the accumulation of objects, things are never quite the way I want them to be. There has always been a lack of, well, clarity.
Happy is the novelist who manages to preserve an actual love letter that he received when he was young within a work of fiction, embedded in it like a clean bullet in flabby flesh and quite secure there, among spurious lives.
I’m often accused of saying some pretty rotten things about my mother-in-law. But quite honestly, she’s only got one major fault – it’s called breathing.
Sometimes I think we’re alone in the universe, and sometimes I think we’re not. In either case the idea is quite staggering.
The savage in man is never quite eradicated.
My private life’s quite sad.
I’m not a princess anyway so I find that quite weird to be labelled as one.
In a country where Americans sense, quite genuinely, that their freedoms have been taken away by the government – as in the U.S. Patriot Act, as in NSA surveillance – people feel powerless.
If you have the same drive and passions that everybody else has – for example, if you’re trying to do the right thing for your family and do the right thing for people you employ – then you can be forgiven quite a lot.
To me, a tax heaven is where everyone pays their fair share. In that respect, I am not quite sure we are in tax heaven yet.
The monarchy is foremost a business, and it’s important to them that the British public continue to finance the excessive luxurious lifestyles of the now quite enormous, wasteful and useless ‘royal’ family. I find it very sad.
I remember listening to Miles Davis in the car with my dad. I had just done my Grade 5 piano exam, and I was quite cocky. I said, ‘It sounds like he’s played the wrong note there.’ I remember the look of horror on my dad’s face, and thinking, ‘Wow, I have to figure out why that is not acceptable.’
The whole ‘studly womaniser’ thing, I mean, I quite enjoy the title – it’s just not very accurate.
You see your children growing. You look at your grandchildren, and you say to yourself, ‘What if I weren’t here? Have I done all I can to prepare them for their role in life?’ You realize that you never quite do everything, but you want to do better than what you have done.
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.
The holidays are a time to – not quite play it safe – but play it classic. You don’t want to be the girl in a head-to-toe sequin look, where you look like you should be an ornament on the tree.
The actual number of atheists is quite small outside of Europe and Manhattan.
Foreign languages was the only thing that interested me when I was at school, so playing in another language… it is quite demanding because if it is not your mother tongue, you are missing some connotations and some emotional depth of certain things.
If someone was making a movie about F1 in the last six months, they wouldn’t need to add a Hollywood ending. If they do make that movie, it’s got to be ‘The Curious Case Of Jenson Button,’ where I’ve lived my life backwards. I’d like Johnny Depp to play me but he wouldn’t be quite right.
When people tell me that I must get my maverick gene from my father, they are only half right. My father and I both have inherited our rebellious personalities from Nana. She has always lived her life on her own terms, something that was once considered quite scandalous, given the times she grew up in.
It’s true what they say: Nothing tastes quite like the East River.
I do chores around the house, but I don’t get an allowance for them. I wash the dishes and sweep the floor… I’m sweeping the floor quite a lot, and my mum always expects me to get a broom and swagger it across the floor all the time.
Maori get pigeonholed into the idea they’re spiritual and telling stories like ‘Whale Rider’ and ‘Once Were Warriors,’ quite serious stuff, but we’re pretty funny people, and we never really have had an opportunity to show that side of ourselves, the clumsy, nerdy side of ourselves, which is something I am.
There’s something about the water – that solitary kind of peaceful feeling. You’re on Earth but not quite.
I mean I have a project that I have been wanting to make for quite a while now; and basically, it’s a story of my parents growing up in the Lower East Side.
If one is rich and one’s a woman, one can be quite misunderstood.
People are interested in crime fiction when they’re quite distanced from crime. People in Darfur are not reading murder mysteries.
I get quite lazy about cooking because when I come back from work it is the last thing I want to do, really is spend loads of time cooking.
I have got a fantastic life and I just like to get on with it, and I am quite a private person.
I used to be indecisive but now I am not quite sure.
It would be easy for someone to think growing up in a small town would be like ‘Footloose’ or something, that it would be, ‘No dancing allowed!’ all the time, but it was quite the opposite. People always got excited for me and my successes and supported me even though I was a little weirdo goofball.
I am quite serious when I say that I do not believe there are, on the whole earth besides, so many intensified bores as in these United States. No man can form an adequate idea of the real meaning of the word, without coming here.
We have to rethink our whole energy approach, which is hard to do because we’re so dependent on oil, not just for fuel but also plastic. If plastic vanished, there would be total chaos. We have to think quite carefully about using oil and its derivatives, because it’s not going to be around forever.
Fans insult me and call me ‘monkey.’ At first, I was quite shocked, but now I do not give it importance.
The ‘Wall Street Journal’ is quite irate that I rank them with industry front groups and cranks denying climate change. But they have a record whenever industrial pollutants are involved. Look at the ‘Journal”s commentary on acid rain, on the ozone layer, and on climate change.
Every moral teacher or spiritual adviser gives injunctions about how to live wisely and well. But life is so complicated and full of uncertainty that rules seldom tell us quite what to do.
Not every gay person recites poetry or has read Keats. You can get readers through anything if the characters are complicated. You can’t dismiss Josey Wales’ quite liberal worldview.
I started out as a high school teacher in inner-city Chicago and realized quite quickly that my students weren’t that motivated.
I’ve been on social media for quite a long time, maybe because I’ve been sending out nutrition information.
The lessons of history would suggest that civilisations move in cycles. You can track that back quite far – the Babylonians, the Sumerians, followed by the Egyptians, the Romans, China. We’re obviously in a very upward cycle right now, and hopefully that remains the case. But it may not.
What I love about Bridgerton’ though is that the women in it do have their own agency within the context of the time. In fact, Daphne is actually quite a feminist character because she’s in control of her destiny.
I sometimes got distracted easily and allowed my mind to wander when I needed to be focused. It’s quite subtle, really, and just being aware of it helps.
I don’t think it’s different to be a black girl in England than it is to be a black girl from America. We all collectively share in a pain of displacement and not feeling like we quite belong in places.
People say maybe we have a soul and chimpanzees don’t. I feel that it’s quite possible that if we have souls, chimpanzees have souls as well.
I’ve never quite understood that feeling: that you arrive in a strange place, yet you want to have nothing but familiar experiences.
I’ve always felt quite singular, even as a child. That I must stay on track to keep my purpose.
At the end of the day, the reality is we’re all losers, and we’re all uncoordinated. We’re the worst of all of the animals on earth, and there’s something quite endearing about that.
I eat only vegetables and fruit, and to me it’s the most aspirational diet because it’s so easy. It’s quite simple, the cooking I do.
I joined Genesis when I was 19. I’ve earned the right to actually do nothing. I don’t want to be a shadow of what I was, so I’ve kind of just quite willingly stood back.
Anyone who tries to diss me in comparison to Queen, it just renders all their criticisms completely futile. That’s quite pleasurable.
Quite frankly, Russian aggression in Ukraine and its illegal occupation of Crimea remind us that we still have a good deal more work to do to guarantee the strategic vision of a Europe whole, free and at peace.
To be quite honest, John Lennon had questionable politics. There was a flip side. He was all peace and love, but he was a very violent character.
When I used to return in the early morning after late-night programmes, the first people I see on the roads at the break of dawn are sweepers, newspaper vendors and milkmen. Since they were all from my hometown, I would stop to talk to them before going home. So I am quite used to their lifestyle and work.
One of the pleasures of being an actor is quite simply taking a walk in someone else’s shoes. And when I look at the roles I’ve played, I’m kind of amazed at all the wonderful adventures I’ve had and the different things I’ve learned.
I’m sick of having an opinion on everything. Getting older, you learn all sorts of things you’re supposed to, but I feel like it’s time, when you get older, through experience, to… I started to feel quite… what’s the word? … intimidated by seeing both sides of everything.
In my experience, it’s quite an empowering thing to forgive someone because you take control and take ownership of that feeling, of that resentment, and that power that they have taken from you, and in some way, you end up being able to turn it around.
When I’m ready to make a photograph, I think I quite obviously see in my minds eye something that is not literally there in the true meaning of the word. I’m interested in something which is built up from within, rather than just extracted from without.
I disappear from the public eye and get rediscovered quite often.
The world wide web has really been quite spectacular and not something I would have predicted.
If I’m not hungry and I’m busy, I am quite happy to skip a meal. It’s informal intermittent fasting. I feel strongly that this is one of the strongest areas of longevity research.
When we eat something at a restaurant, however simple it may look, there’s something in it that makes you think, ‘Well, I couldn’t quite do this from home.’
As a father, you want the best for your son, quite obviously. You want to create the best memories for your son.
Truth in drama is forever elusive. You never quite find it, but the search for it is compulsive. The search is clearly what drives the endeavour. The search is your task.
Although I grew up in London, I spent summers in Missouri, where my dad lived. It’s quite a liberal town, Kansas City. You’d be surprised.
When I was born, my parents and my mother’s parents planted a dogwood tree in the side yard of the large white house in which we lived throughout my boyhood. This tree I learned quite early, was exactly my age – was, in a sense, me.
History isn’t just the story of bad people doing bad things. It’s quite as much a story of people trying to do good things. But somehow, something goes wrong.
Mathematics was hard, dull work. Geography pleased me more. For dancing I was quite enthusiastic.
I’m not quite that difficult, even though maybe I’m a little bit bossy. But you know, in order to get things done, you do have to be a little bit bossy sometimes or tell people what you really want. Otherwise, things just don’t get done, do they?
It has been said that the love of money is the root of all evil. The want of money is so quite as truly.
Nothing in life is quite as important as you think it is while you’re thinking about it.
When I was 49, I posed for Playboy – I was very flattered to be asked. I was quite honoured, really, considering that most of the models they feature are in their twenties.
The universe can take quite a while to deliver.
In high school I had sex with girls quite a few times. They were straight women who I convinced to jump in the sack with me.
I do quite naughty things now. I do like to be a bit sexy.
My first winter was also quite hard because you are not used to how cold it is. But I just tried to adapt as quickly as I could and I think I did well. I was speaking English after six months.
When we are in love we seem to ourselves quite different from what we were before.
I don’t think the majority of people – to be quite honest – care. I think they see me as someone who was at one stage of my life in the IRA, but they see me in the round, as someone who was able to make peace.
How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.
Men’s moral principles are weak enough without their being made subordinate to selfishness; and their selfishness is quite active enough, without any such effort as Christianity makes to constitute it the mainspring of all their conduct.
It’s quite interesting that in my growing up I had several influences. We had gospel music on campus. R&B music was, of course, the community, and radio was country music. So I can kind of see where all the influences came from.
By definition, of course, we believe the person with a stigma is not quite human. On this assumption we exercise varieties of discrimination, through which we effectively, if often unthinkingly, reduce his life chances.
And new Philosophy calls all in doubt, the element of fire is quite put out; the Sun is lost, and the earth, and no mans wit can well direct him where to look for it.
Sculpture is like farming. If you just keep at it, you can get quite a lot done.
I’m quite into the idea of engineering being beautiful.
Dinosaur Jr. in their live capacity are a band that put me in a state of such overwhelming rock that it often takes quite a while to come down.
Death metal uses a lot of white face paint and black hair dye to make its point. I quite enjoy this genre for its intensity, extremism and underlying irony: You have to be alive to play it and listen to it.
I was interested in Prozac from a personal point of view because I can be a bit moody – things do get on top of me sometimes – so I was quite keen to find out what it would do to my personality.
I guess I’m quite used to not being understood rather than being understood.
I realised quite early that by the time I articulate my thoughts into words, I’m on to another thought. And what comes out wasn’t what I thought of exactly. So not talking was a better option.
It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent.
I can speak Tamil fluently, and the sentence structures in Telugu are quite similar.
I love Lars von Trier. ‘Dogville’ is my favourite movie of the last 20 years. ‘Nymphomaniac’ and ‘Melancholia’ aren’t quite as exciting as ‘The Kingdom’, ‘Breaking the Waves’, or ‘The Idiots’, but I’ll always love him for being him.
On ‘Game of Thrones,’ all of my closest friends are 30 upwards, which is quite strange.
I was in sixth grade the first time I was required to speak in front of an audience. I had terrible stage fright and felt quite ill, in fact, by the time I had to give my little talk to students in another class across the hall.
I always kind of think if The Beatles were still around now, people would’ve lost interest quite a long time ago. Seven years of recording – it’s there forever. I think not outstaying your welcome is a vital ingredient.
You make the movie through the cinematography – it sounds quite a simple idea, but it was like a huge revelation to me.
I have been told I say ‘shucks’ quite frequently… Shucks, I’ll have to work on that.
There was a time in my life when I was going in and out of houses that were extraordinarily different – from a working-class terrace in Northampton to the homes of friends who were really very wealthy. It was quite an odd position to be in, I realise looking back, and quite a nice one.
I used to be quite a big video game player at university and post-university in that weird moment in life before you have a proper job and you’ve got a lot of idle time.
It’s very true that you can be both selfless and selfish at the same time. What we tend towards, particularly in filmmaking, is this binary sort of, ‘This is a good guy, this is a bad guy.’ And I quite like the fact that life is a bit more complex than that.
Things may not be immediately discernible in what a man writes, and in this sometimes he is fortunate; but eventually they are quite clear, and by these and the degree of alchemy that he possesses, he will endure or be forgotten.
We would like to make it quite clear that we are not migrants into the U.K. But we are the citizens of a state that belongs to the European Union who can take jobs anywhere freely within the European Union.
There is more hooey spread about the Second Amendment. It says quite clearly that guns are for those who form part of a well-regulated militia, i.e., the armed forces including the National Guard. The reasons for keeping them away from everyone else get clearer by the day.
Not a lot of people know me outside of athletics and believe it or not I am actually quite shy. The exhilaration of a win or tears after falling are the extremes. It takes me a while to get to know someone, but once I do I am very loyal to my old friends.
Character robotics could plant the seed for robots that actually have empathy. So, if they achieve human level intelligence or, quite possibly, greater than human levels of intelligence, this could be the seeds of hope for our future.
Writing is finally about one thing: going into a room alone and doing it, putting words on paper that have never been there in quite that way before.
I tried singing. I tried playing a musical instrument. I really wanted to be a musician, but I never could quite pull that off. I liked entertaining, but I was always drawn to some kind of technical work – some kind of honest labor.
Rugby gave me a confidence. I was quite shy and relatively timid, but it gave me the confidence to be a little bit more out-going and back myself a bit more.
I’ve always wanted to live really high up, and this is the only flat in the building with a balcony, so I feel quite smug up here.
I believe alien life is quite common in the universe, although intelligent life is less so. Some say it has yet to appear on planet Earth.
Changes which are slow and gradual can be hard to notice even if their ultimate impact is quite dramatic.
‘Bombing Afghanistan back into the Stone Age’ was quite a favourite headline for some wobbly liberals. The slogan does all the work. But an instant’s thought shows that Afghanistan is being, if anything, bombed out of the Stone Age.
I think I am more determined than ever in my future plans, and I have quite made up my mind that nothing must be suffered to interfere with them. I intend to make such arrangements in town as will secure me a couple of hours daily (with very few exceptions) for my studies.
Quite frankly, the financial community has to improve its image. The financial community has to be much more transparent than it is.
There’s something quite shocking in this idea that everything is disposable and that people don’t care for things anymore.
A child’s fear is a world whose dark corners are quite unknown to grownup people; it has its sky and its abysses, a sky without stars, abysses into which no light can ever penetrate.
To have a broad range is one thing, but to still have the Simple Minds identity is quite remarkable.
Abroad, they have covered pretty much all subjects, explored every possibility, every twist. So similarities between ideas you have and those filmed abroad are quite possible.
It’s very important to like the people you work with. Otherwise, your job is going to be quite miserable.
The Senate is a remarkable institution. It is unique. There is no other body, no other political body, no other democratic legislature in the world quite like the U.S. Senate.
It’s quite complicated and sounds circular, but we’ve worked out a way of calculate a Web site’s importance.
I am now quite cured of seeking pleasure in society, be it country or town. A sensible man ought to find sufficient company in himself.
The arts, quite simply, nourish the soul. They sustain, comfort, inspire. There is nothing like that exquisite moment when you first discover the beauty of connecting with others in celebration of larger ideals and shared wisdom.
Social etiquette dictates that when in mixed company, one should avoid discussing politics and religion. As someone who is quite active on various social portals, I can attest to the visceral emotions that are triggered when these topics are broached!
Going to Belgium proved to be quite a cathartic experience for me because it eventually helped to heal the situation of leaving Leicester too.
My morning routine is quite common: I have breakfast at home while reading the newspaper, I take a shower, get dressed, a spray of cologne, and I am ready to go!
Both my mom and dad were quite supportive. They never ever stopped me in realizing my dreams in the film industry.
If you look in general at people who live in anarchy, they have quite high rates of death from either homicide or warfare or both. Anarchy is one of the main reasons for violence, and it may be the most important.
I got quite annoyed after the Haiti earthquake. A baby was taken from the wreckage and people said it was a miracle. It would have been a miracle had God stopped the earthquake. More wonderful was that a load of evolved monkeys got together to save the life of a child that wasn’t theirs.
There is no celebrity quite as powerful as the local, homegrown celebrity.
Facebook is quite entrenched and has a network effect. It’s hard to break into a network once it’s formed.
The inspiration came suddenly again to surrender to the Mother. It was quite unexpected: And so somehow I made a surrender to the Mother. Then I had an experience of overwhelming love. Waves of love sort of flowed into me.
The first reactions from Germany and German industry was quite negative. People right from the start were saying that we will steal technology and take it away and move the plant to India and use low cheap labor to compete.
Intellectual comradeship requires that you think your thoughts through to the place where you can make the complex seem simple, the obscure quite clear.
My mother and father were fantastic, very active. I find it difficult to say this, but I’m quite a loving person and I’ve always been loving to my friends. In the long run, that pays off. I’m very interested in other people, and if you are, they’re interested in you.
I did quite a lot of menial jobs. I was a waiter, an inventory clerk touring round properties listing cups and saucers, and a laserquest marshal.
People are often quite lazy. We like taking the easy way out – we like handing over responsibility, we like being offered shortcuts that mean we don’t have to think.
I went to a very academically competitive high school. So I was always quite studious and quiet, just to keep up with the other geniuses who were in my school.

I was never consciously rebellious but I suppose comedy is a sort of act of rebellion isnt it? Coming from a quite liberal background, it never occurred to me that there was anything to rebel against because you were allowed to say what you wanted to say.

Nothing happens quite by chance. It’s a question of accretion of information and experience.
I’m not a quick wit. I’m only funny on paper. I mean, I’m not totally humorless! It’s just that in person, I’m not quite the way I am on paper.
We believe that unilateral sanctions violate international law, in fact. They violate free trade. They violate human growth and development, human development, and that when you actually sanction a bank of a country, the meaning of it is quite clear. You’re sanctioning medicine for the people.
I’ve always been quite scared about talking about race. You don’t wanna rock the boat because you want to keep working.
I’m quite a studious person, I think.
I did theater summer camps when I was a kid, and I enjoyed them, but they never felt quite right. But then there would always be a tiny improv workshop towards the end of camp, and I would always feel like I liked it so much better.
Like everybody at that age, I read an awful lot of pulp fiction. But at the same time, I also read quite a bit of history and read that as much for pleasure as part of a curriculum.
You can be surrounded by many people but still feel quite lonely if you don’t have strong connections and if you feel you can’t be yourself with them. Conversely, you can just be around a few people, but feel deeply connected to them.
Being an only child, I didn’t have any other family but my mom and dad really, since the rest of my family lived quite far away from London.
Colombia is so different to what I know, and every aspect of the country is different to England, and I loved it. I loved the culture and the food, and the coffee was amazing. The place that we were was stunning, and it really was quite an amazing experience to film out there.
I’m really quite normal. My imagination has some serious kinks in it, that’s all.
People who have tried it, tell me that a clear conscience makes you very happy and contented; but a full stomach does the business quite as well, and is cheaper, and more easily obtained.
One thing I am quite passionate about is the absence of dark-skinned women in the media, so I have a passion to show dark-skinned women as beautiful, as vulnerable, as people who can be sexually desired and loving people, because it is never really seen on TV.
I try and have a relaxed attitude and stay quite switched off until about an hour before kick-off.
Whether the angels play only Bach praising God, I am not quite sure. I am sure, however, that en famille they play Mozart.
It seems that when you have cancer you are a brave battler against the disease, but when you have Alzheimer’s you are an old fart. That’s how people see you. It makes you feel quite alone.
My inbox and doormat are full with emails and letters from people who want me to endorse their Higgs board game or to inaugurate the walkway of their new office atrium. There’s even a microbrewery in Barcelona which wants to know what my favourite beer is so they can brew a similar one in my honour. It is quite mad.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with so many great directors. Different styles, as well, like Gus Van Sant. He just does the casting and the milieu and let’s you do your thing, quietly. Bertolucci, who can talk to you about your internal world in quite a creative way or just say, ‘Well, put your hand over here.’
Things are not quite what they seem always. Don’t start me on class, otherwise you’ll get a four-hour lecture.
Many people, including some conservatives, have been very impressed with how brainy the president and his advisers are. But that is not quite as reassuring as it might seem.
I met Madonna when I was 22, and I danced with her until I was 28. When I met her, I was a tomboy! Every time I see her, she really inspired me about one thing or another, so she’s quite important and significant person in my life.
My dad had a personal style which was very attractive. It was quite reserved and quite elegant, and it was infectious.

There’s nothing quite like a quiet corner in a coffee shop to gather your thoughts and begin writing.
It is true that short forms of poetry have been cultivated in the Far East more than in modern Europe; but in all European literature short forms of poetry are to be found – indeed quite as short as anything in Japanese.
I felt the most intense pleasure in piercing the stone in order to make an abstract form and space; quite a different sensation from that of doing it for the purpose of realism.
I knew from an early age that people didn’t see the different sides of me. I formulated a kind of bi-cultural identity quite early, and I was always very comfortable with it, but I knew people didn’t quite see that.
I liked the koala, wallaby, and I chilled with a kangaroo a bit. There was a wombat that I quite enjoyed also.
There are things around, and I know where they can be got quite easily, but I quite like waking up to the sunshine.
I just grew up watching a lot of movies. I’m attracted to this genre and that genre, this type of story, and that type of story. As I watch movies I make some version of it in my head that isn’t quite what I’m seeing – taking the things I like and mixing them with stuff I’ve never seen before.
If one could only teach the English how to talk, and the Irish how to listen, society here would be quite civilized.

Many dotcoms recruited people from existing companies who were quite experienced in finance, marketing, distribution and other disciplines but not necessarily experienced in the Web culture.
As things are, and as fundamentally they must always be, poetry is not a career, but a mug’s game. No honest poet can ever feel quite sure of the permanent value of what he has written: He may have wasted his time and messed up his life for nothing.
I was a mixture of being incredibly old for my age and incredibly backwards. I was born quite old, but then I stopped growing. I lived with my mum and dad till I was 30.

My body is quite tiny, but a lot of the emotions I feel are pretty explosive. They have to come out.
The first time I crawled into the octagon, I just felt like an animal, you know? Like a creature, like I wasn’t quite human.
My experience of Chinese culture is indirect, through echoes. When I approach the cashier at my local Chinese supermarket, they switch to English before I’ve even said a word. They somehow know that I’m not quite Chinese enough.
