I had a good time working with Russell Crowe, Ron Howard and Ed Harris. It was a great cast and Russell worked really hard, doing tons of research and questioning everything.
A heart well prepared for adversity in bad times hopes, and in good times fears for a change in fortune.
First of all, the most important, that is to learn everything good that has survived from other times, and carefully to watch the bad - and throw it out.
The good of other times let people state; I think it lucky I was born so late.
It was the most fun I've ever had on a movie. It was one of the happiest times in my life. I was living in New York, and I really enjoyed acting at the time. Also, it's funny because that was also the time when I went downhill.
I am really not interested in the cinema. I loathed it when I started six years ago, and I don't enjoy it even now.
I understand what it feels like not to like aspects of yourself. There have been times that I have felt really terrible about the way I look. I have the seed of that feeling.
There are times when fear is good. It must keep its watchful place at the heart's controls.
Time alone reveals the just man; but you might discern a bad man in a single day.
It's a very small and select slice of all the people who have ever been born. I believe we've come back during this time, those of us who are here now, specifically to experience it. And to cause a 'quickening of the spirit.'
Experts say that Iraq may have nuclear weapons. That's bad news - they may have a nuclear bomb. Now the good news is that they have to drop it with a camel.
I can't really envision a time when I'm not shooting something.
The prejudice was so bad in the United States at that time that a dark person with a white person would not be served in a restaurant. My father, mother, and I would try it occasionally. We would sit there, and the food would never come.
It takes time to persuade men to do even what is for their own good.
The good man is the teacher of the bad, And the bad is the material from which the good may learn. He who does not value the teacher, or greatly care for the material, is greatly deluded although he may be learned. Such is the essential mystery.
To be ignorant of what happened before you were born is to be ever a child. For what is man's lifetime unless the memory of past events is woven with those of earlier times?
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.
It's good to experience Hollywood in short bursts, I guess. Little snippets. I don't think I can handle being here all the time, it's pretty nutty.
I know the only reason that I haven't gotten many good parts is because I am Latin - and they tell it to my face a lot of times.
Giving is good, but taking is bad and brings death.
There's good and bad in everybody. I wasn't looking for the good, or looking for the bad. This is a man who signed his pact with the devil 20 years ago, and he's learned to live with it. He's tried to protect his family from it.
For a long time now I have tried simply to write the best I can. Sometimes I have good luck and write better than I can.
When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That's my religion.
It is neither good nor bad, but thinking makes it so.
This time, like all other times, is a very good time, if we but know what to do with it.
