I had no idea of the character. But the moment I was dressed, the clothes and the make-up made me feel the person he was. I began to know him, and by the time I walked onto the stage he was fully born.
By recollecting the pleasures I have had formerly, I renew them, I enjoy them a second time, while I laugh at the remembrance of troubles now past, and which I no longer feel.
I believe that time destroys everything. You can take one beautiful apple, red. After a while, it becomes shrivelled and full of worms, just like what happens to us.
We praise a man who feels angry on the right grounds and against the right persons and also in the right manner at the right moment and for the right length of time.
Paris Hilton, that's very interesting what she did. I've never done that. I haven't really sort of ever got into that. As time passes, maybe I should record it and put it in a vault so that when I get a little old don't have the energy I can remember how life used to be.
I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.
It is about this very abstract sense of displacement that he feels the moment he turns off the television.
I never quite understood these actors - though I envy them sometimes - who can lie out for a year or two. I feel as though time is a real pressing issue, and I want to get as much work done in the time that I have left.
I'm more focused and have a greater sense of challenge, because I constantly feel the weight of time.
But each time I seemed to be climbing into a roller coaster and finding myself coming through the downhill run with that sort of dazed feeling that we all know.
Being a famous actress may give you a sense of being important, but believe me, it's just an illusion.
The difficult is what takes a little time; the impossible is what takes a little longer.
People think of these eureka moments and my feeling is that they tend to be little things, a little realisation and then a little realisation built on that.
Be sure what you want and be sure about yourself. Fashion is not just beauty, it's about good attitude. You have to believe in yourself and be strong.
Believe that with your feelings and your work you are taking part in the greatest; the more strongly you cultivate this belief, the more will reality and the world go forth from it.
Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.
My concern is to continue respecting my work as I've done since I began as an actor and I could only do that if I'm strong enough to keep on doing what I think best in an artistic way.
All that prosthetic makeup drains you. By the time it's lunch, you're done.
I love the look of planes and the idea of how a plane flies. The more I learn about it the better I feel; while I still may not like it, I have a sense of what is really happening.
Lose not yourself in a far off time, seize the moment that is thine.
Some people feel that what we're doing makes no sense, that it's just a waste of money. But it's working.
I'd done a fragrance before, but in a small way, and now I wanted to wait for the right time to make an important fragrance statement.
Having felt people's love and support first hand through difficult moments in my life makes me feel it's our responsibility to help one another.
We conceal it from ourselves in vain - we must always love something. In those matters seemingly removed from love, the feeling is secretly to be found, and man cannot possibly live for a moment without it.
Our moods do not believe in each other.?To-day I am full of thoughts, and can write what I please.? I see no reason why I should not have the same thought, the same power of expression, to-morrow.? What I write, whilst I write it, seems the most natural thing in the world; but yesterday I saw a dreary vacuity in this direction in which now I see so much; and a month hence, I doubt not, I shall wonder who he was that wrote so many continuous pages.? Alas for this infirm faith, this will not strenuous, this vast ebb of a vast flow!?I am God in nature; I am a weed by the wall.
