Work can be hard sometimes - acting - the arts can be hard sometimes in that way - hard to give yourself that inspiration if you don't have a job.
I used to be very shy. When I first started, I had to go to a casting, and I had to go in a bikini. I thought I was too skinny. But I went in and got the job! And that's how I started.
I actually thought that it would be a little confusing during the same period of your life to be in one meeting when you're trying to make money, and then go to another meeting where you're giving it away.
One thing above all gives charm to men's thoughts, and this is unrest. A mind that is not uneasy irritates and bores me.
Don't be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
We seal our fate with the choices we take, but don't give a second thought to the chances we take.
We read on the foreheads of those who are surrounded by a foolish luxury, that fortune sells what she is thought to give.
Let the tutor not merely require a verbal account of what the boy has been taught but the meaning and the substance of it:let him judge how the child has profited from it not from the evidence of his memory but from that of his life. Let him take what the boy has just learned and make him show him dozens of different aspects of it andthen apply it to just as many different subjects, in order to find out whether he has really grasped it and make it part of himself,judging the boy's progress by what Plato taught about education. Spewing up food exactly as you have swallowed it is evidence of a failureto digest and assimilate it; the stomach has not done its job if, during concoction, it fails to change the substance and the form of what it is given.
Reason is a supple nymph, and slippery as a fish by nature. She had as leave give her kiss to an absurdity any day, as to syllogistic truth. The absurdity may turn out truer.
It's not my job to try and alter the director's style - he's in charge, and I'll always give him my trust.
My job in this life is to give people spiritual ecstasy through music. In my concerts people cry, laugh, dance. If they climaxed spiritually, I did my job. I did it decently and honestly.
They didn't accept me theory - not a theory, but just a thought I had about this character. I noticed that this man only exists when the boy comes into the grocery.
We are formed and molded by our thoughts. Those whose minds are shaped by selfless thoughts give joy when they speak or act. Joy follows them like a shadow that never leaves them.
I like meeting all my fans and signing autographs, although it can all get a bit crazy. Yesterday, for example, a boy just came over and planted a big kiss on my face! I was like, 'Hello?'
A subtle thought that is in error may yet give rise to fruitful inquiry that can establish truths of great value.
To my mind the boy who gives least promise is one in whom the critical faculty develops in advance of the imagination.
Give thy thoughts no tongue.
My soul is not my own any more. I cannot live like I want to. I am going to give up films.
Before I thought there was a common denominator between my films - as if all my characters were sisters - but I'm not so sure now.
You can learn so much from children, and you can give them so much.
Among mortals second thoughts are wisest.
As a boy, because I was born and raised in Ohio, about 60 miles north of Dayton, the legends of the Wrights have been in my memories as long as I can remember.
It is never too late to give up our prejudices.
Concision in style, precision in thought, decision in life.
Right now, my job is that I'm like an ambulance chaser. I've got to look for movies with white guys falling out of them.
