I think it's fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we've ever created. They're tools of communication, they're tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their user.
You sit at the board and suddenly your heart leaps. Your hand trembles to pick up the piece and move it. But what chess teaches you is that you must sit there calmly and think about whether it's really a good idea and whether there are other, better ideas.
You play the hand you're dealt. I think the game's worthwhile.
One is not idle because one is absorbed. There is both visible and invisible labor. To contemplate is to toil, to think is to do. The crossed arms work, the clasped hands act. The eyes upturned to Heaven are an act of creation.
I'm a very restless person. I'm always doing something. The creative process never stops.
This hand is not very active always, because it was in this hand that I carried my books. My carrying hand was always my strongest. Now I think my other hand has developed more muscles from signing all those autographs.
I think I am a creative person, but I'm slightly more kind of visionary... I prefer to guide writers, than to claim to be one of them.
When I played Robin Hood, I knew the great role was Alan Rickman's and it didn't bother me. I always think that leading actors should be called the best supporting actors.
I try to do as many stunts as they'll let me do. I think it's important for an audience to feel that the actor's really doing it.
I think everyone has a certain kind of formula in their life. When you deviate from that formula, you're going to fail big or you're gonna win big.

It really helps you to go through difficult situations by just thinking about it as being a big amount of work which you have to solve how to do. For example, I don't feel very inspired when I act, I just act. That's it.
I think any girl who comes to Hollywood with sex symbol or bombshell hanging over her has a rough road.
Somewhere along the line I made the switch and was able to look at the bight side rather than the dark side all the time. Now I look at everything I have and think how lucky I am.
I think it's not a femme fatale when someone is not doing it to manipulate men or be like a black widow. She loves him. She does it out of love. She wants him so badly to stay with her.
It is godlike ever to think on something beautiful and on something new.
Marriage is like putting your hand into a bag of snakes in the hope of pulling out an eel.
If I didn't swim my best, I'd think about it at school, at dinner, with my friends. It would drive me crazy.
My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.

A creative artist works on his next composition because he was not satisfied with his previous one.
