Drawings help people to work out intricate relationships between parts.
On the one hand, you're the same person, but as you get older, you change somewhat, and you never know how it's going to affect your work.
Toil is man's allotment; toil of brain, or toil of hands, or a grief that's more than either, the grief and sin of idleness.
It's been hard to hand over the working design of Freedom Tower to another architect - although we're still a part of the team, and so is Larry.
Everything vanishes around me, and works are born as if out of the void. Ripe, graphic fruits fall off. My hand has become the obedient instrument of a remote will.
As I consider different ways of shooting a film, I draw images that come to me using the tools at hand.
Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art.
Even when I work with computers, with high technology, I always try to put in the touch of the hand.

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.
I worked very hard, but I think it's unfair to make it all sound like it's all David's fault.
I love working quickly. I don't like to do thousands of takes, and I don't want to do thousands of set ups.
