I do not need the idea of God to explain the world I live in.
When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.
You don't need to pray to God any more when there are storms in the sky, but you do have to be insured.
I live and love in God's peculiar light.
Truth is the silliest thing under the sun. Try to get a living by the Truth and go to the Soup Societies. Heavens! Let any clergyman try to preach the Truth from its very stronghold, the pulpit, and they would ride him out of his church on his own pulpit bannister.
Last night the United States dropped four 2,000 pound bombs on Saddam Hussein. I don't know anything about explosives, but, my God, do those things even need to explode?
Again, it may be said, that to love justice and equality the people need no great effort of virtue; it is sufficient that they love themselves.
The human soul has still greater need of the ideal than of the real. It is by the real that we exist; it is by the ideal that we live.
For me, college wasn't a breeze. I had 8 o'clock classes, I worked from 3 to 11 at the Settlement House. On weekends, if Northwestern Bell needed me, I'd troubleshoot for them, and I had a steady girl. God!
Not only do I have to live, right, I have to get some cash for my troubles - it's a scary thing, and people need to start to think about the messages that they send in the movies.
If I be worthy, I live for my God to teach the heathen, even though they may despise me.
Find out how much God has given you and from it take what you need; the remainder is needed by others.
We all need to feel that we are contributing value to the lives of others.
God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.
I'm less needy about needing to express myself through acting. I have many different lives outside of this that are extremely fulfilling.
If I have any worth, it is to live my life for God so as to teach these peoples; even though some of them still look down on me.
No society has been able to abolish human sadness, no political system can deliver us from the pain of living, from our fear of death, our thirst for the absolute. It is the human condition that directs the social condition, not vice versa.
I don't have people following me around, like bodyguards. I don't know how people live like that. Maybe the young movie stars have to live like that, I don't know. But it seems a little crazy to me. I don't think you need all that stuff.
My mother used to tell me man gives the award, God gives the reward. I don't need another plaque.
We need God, not in order to understand the why, but in order to feel and sustain the ultimate wherefore, to give a meaning to the universe.
Progressive art can assist people to learn not only about the objective forces at work in the society in which they live, but also about the intensely social character of their interior lives. Ultimately, it can propel people toward social emancipation.
I was born out of due time in the sense that by temperament and talent I should have been more suited for the life of a small Bach, living in anonymity and composing regularly for an established service and for God.
But someone like Claude Chabrol tries to make a connection between the society in which we live and the social reasons which make monsters out of some people.
I am now quite cured of seeking pleasure in society, be it country or town. A sensible man ought to find sufficient company in himself.
Millions of men have lived to fight, build palaces and boundaries, shape destinies and societies; but the compelling force of all times has been the force of originality and creation profoundly affecting the roots of human spirit.
