I'm just into making quality stuff if I can, with interesting people and good scripts. But it's very important that it's about something and that it says something. Otherwise, I don't know what the point is, really.
There are always protests, whether you do something good or bad. Even if you do something beneficial, people say you do it because it's advertising.
And trust, yes, which is important, but that is what I aim towards. Now that is difficult for some people, and with that desire to get things as good as possible, I would say that I'm probably regarded as quite prickly to work with.
It's funny when people say, 'I don't think Julia likes me.' Honey, if I don't like you, you're going to know about it.
One can know a man from his laugh, and if you like a man's laugh before you know anything of him, you may confidently say that he is a good man.
You shouldn't say it is not good. You should say, you do not like it; and then, you know, you're perfectly safe.
Know one knows whether death, which people fear to be the greatest evil, may not be the greatest good.
You say that you are my judge; I do not know if you are; but take good heed not to judge me ill, because you would put yourself in great peril.
Of course, some would say if you have a performing inclination, then you should become a lawyer. That's a platform we use, or a priest. You know, anywhere you lecture and pontificate to people.
Movie directors, or should I say people who create things, are very greedy and they can never be satisfied... That's why they can keep on working. I've been able to work for so long because I think next time, I'll make something good.
You know what the Englishman's idea of compromise is? He says, Some people say there is a God. Some people say there is no God. The truth probably lies somewhere between these two statements.
When the people of the world all know beauty as beauty, There arises the recognition of ugliness. When they all know the good as good, There arises the recognition of evil.
There is a lot I haven't said that I actually could say. I hope people would find it interesting. I know a lot of people could relate to it.
I don't want people kissing my butt. If I had a bad show and I know it, don't tell me I had a good show. I hate that. I guess because I'm 17, people think I don't see stuff like that.

'Know thyself' is a good saying, but not in all situations. In many it is better to say 'know others.'
To say that a work of art is good, but incomprehensible to the majority of men, is the same as saying of some kind of food that it is very good but that most people can't eat it.
If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love. Don't be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning 'Good morning' at total strangers.
I was told to avoid the business all together because of the rejection. People would say to me, 'Don't you want to have a normal job and a normal family?' I guess that would be good advice for some people, but I wanted to act.
Few people know how to take a walk. The qualifications are endurance, plain clothes, old shoes, an eye for nature, good humor, vast curiosity, good speech, good silence, and nothing too much.
People always make war when they say they love peace.
My biggest nightmare is I'm driving home and get sick and go to hospital. I say: 'Please help me.' And the people say: 'Hey, you look like...' And I'm dying while they're wondering whether I'm Barbra Streisand.
People talk worse about people than they talk good about people, because a lot of people like drama.
No human being will ever know the Truth, for even if they happen to say it by chance, they would not even known they had done so.
People tend to believe the bad rather than the good.
