Even in high school I was very interested in history - why people do the things they do. As a kid I spent a lot of time trying to relate the past to the present.
Instead of worrying about what people say of you, why not spend time trying to accomplish something they will admire.
It's a waste of time for people to say things they think other people want to hear, or try and come off in a certain way. I try to be as honest as I can.
Most people spend more time and energy going around problems than in trying to solve them.
Feeling sorry for yourself, and your present condition, is not only a waste of energy but the worst habit you could possibly have.
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
Some of the things you read you get an immediate reaction to so I've stopped reading things now. I do worry about my family though. Some people do try some nasty things to get at them and try and get a reaction from them.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.
I think these movies are as much for people of that time as for people who weren't born. For people who weren't born, they see how leaders must act under a crisis situation, not trying to be re-elected or not trying to check polls, that they go from their gut check.
The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause.
People who don't know how to keep themselves healthy ought to have the decency to get themselves buried, and not waste time about it.
The right really dominates radio, and it's amazing how much energy the right spends telling us that the press is slanted to the left when it really isn't. They want to shut other people up. They really don't understand the First Amendment.
And I think both the left and the right should celebrate people who have different opinions, and disagree with them, and argue with them, and differ with them, but don't just try to shut them up.
Well, I think I've made 44 films and only like four times I've played real characters I'm just drawn to people who have a pioneer spirit, this extraordinary energy and commitment to their cause.
It has been my observation that most people get ahead during the time that others waste.
Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.
I certainly wasn't able to get it when I was a kid growing up on the Lower East Side; it was very hard at that time for me to balance what I really believed was the right way to live with the violence I saw all around me - I saw too much of it among the people I knew.
Many people worry so much about managing their careers, but rarely spend half that much energy managing their LIVES. I want to make my life, not just my job, the best it can be. The rest will work itself out.
It's vital that the monarchy keeps in touch with the people. It's what I try and do.
I've been around a long time. Maybe the people like me.
I don't think anyone has the right to intrude in your life, but they do. I would like people to separate the actress and the woman.
I think it's impossible to judge whether another person should come out. You just hope they will on their own time and their own terms.
These words dropped into my childish mind as if you should accidentally drop a ring into a deep well. I did not think of them much at the time, but there came a day in my life when the ring was fished up out of the well, good as new.
I interviewed survivors, I went to Poland, saw the cities and spent time with the people and spoke to the Jews who had come back to Poland after the war and talked about why they had come back.
