I've never run into a guy who could win at the top level in anything today and didn't have the right attitude, didn't give it everything he had, at least while he was doing it; wasn't prepared and didn't have the whole program worked out.
The only advice my Dad's given me is: If you ain't having fun, it ain' working, so always have fun with what you're doing. If you don't love it then there's no reason to do it. And don't do it for fame or money- do it because it's something that you feel is right.
Sometimes you choose the wrong actor, he could be the best actor ever, but he's not cast in the right part then it doesn't work.
Right now my career is totally schizophrenic, because when an American production like Hitchcock Presents asks to see my work I would never dream of showing them my independent films.
At the Carter Center we work with victims of oppression, and we give support to human rights heroes.
Don't waste life in doubts and fears; spend yourself on the work before you, well assured that the right performanceof this hour's duties will be the best preparation for the hours or ages that follow it.
Men do what is called a good action, as some piece of courage or charity, much as they would pay a fine in expiation of daily non-appearance on parage.? Thier works are done as an apology or extenuation of thier living in the world.-as invalids and the insane pay a high? board.? Thier virtues are penances.? I do not wish to expiate, but to live.? My life is for itself and not a spectacle.?I can not consent to pay for privilege where I have intrinsic right.
With Malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds.
I guess there are very few actors that I've worked with that I would like to work with again. You never think you'll have that chance and, if we didn't do Italian Job together, there wouldn't be another one that could be right.
There is a principle which is the basis of things, which all speech aims to say, and all action to evolve, a simple, quiet, undescribed, undescribable presence,dwelling very peacefully in us, our rightful lord: we are not to do, but to let do; not to work, but to be worked upon.
Hopefully, if not it's not working right. I'm like a navigator and I try to encourage our collaboration and find the best way that will produce fruit. I like fruit. I like cherries, I like bananas.
I wanted this, I wanted to do this, but my work is me, and it has to be right.
There is a saying that every nice piece of work needs the right person in the right place at the right time.

All things will be produced in superior quantity and quality, and with greater ease, when each man works at a single occupation, in accordance with his natural gifts, and at the right moment, without meddling with anything else.
I missed my home - like the physicality of my home, I missed my friends and my family mostly and just hanging out and being in your home country - culturally it feels right and that is what I miss.
Men are allowed to have passion and commitment for their work... a woman is allowed that feeling for a man, but not her work.
Europeans are incredibly negative about America at the moment. I think they lose sight of the fact that the country's a very divided place right now.
I had to take my makeup off at work every night. I wasn't allowed to do it at home because my mom said that when your work day is done, you're done with work.
I feel like I haven't done my best work yet. I feel like there's a world of possibilities out there.
It's funny that it all becomes about clothes. It's bizarre. You work your butt off and then you win an award and it's all about your dress. You can't get away from it.
Mix a little foolishness with your serious plans. It is lovely to be silly at the right moment.
Nothing can substitute for just plain hard work. I had to put in the time to get back. And it was a grind. It meant training and sweating every day. But I was completely committed to working out to prove to myself that I still could do it.
Man - a creature made at the end of the week's work when God was tired.
A good idea is about ten percent and implementation and hard work, and luck is 90 percent.
