Let us give Nature a chance; she knows her business better than we do.
For me, making films is like being on vacation, it's a nice walk. But theatre is like mountaineering. You never know whether you're going to fall off or make it to the top.
And I had a great time making Reloaded and Revolutions. It's great that people are coming out to see the films and I hope they enjoy them.
Making films is really hard, and if it has anything that's a little bit out of the mainstream, then it's really hard to get made.
One movie is only one movie. I want to have a lifetime of making films.
I feel it now... there's a power in me to grasp and give shape to my world. I know that nothing has ever been real without my beholding it.
What business do we have telling people who to vote for? They probably know more about it than we do.
I envy children who know that they're going to become doctors, know they're going to go into the forces or whatever. I think choice is one of the hardest things, but that's what I try to give my children, to say you can do anything.
I feel fine, I don't care who the director is. All you have to do is know what your doing - all of us - everybody in the business - that's all you ask anyone - you know your job, I know mine, let's go do it.
Being horrible in a big film is a quicker nosedive than doing an obscure film and making no money.
Now, after the communist take-over in 1948, the amount of feature films produced dwindled to three a year, while the school was, you know, every year another three, four, five students.
If my films don't show a profit, I know I'm doing something right.
I loved the material when I first read it, and the experience of making the film was a great one. So when we came around to complete the trilogy, I just signed on board without even reading the scripts because the experience of the first film was so good.
I'm very wary about giving advice. I think it's very dangerous to give advice to people, except if you know them very well.
I'd go from film to film and almost detach from one world and jump in another. I was living as these people and not having a self. I didn't know who I was. And things just get really dark.
I am not for the death penalty and so making this film did not change my point of view. I think it made me more aware of how ineffective it is.
The competitor to be feared is one who never bothers about you at all, but goes on making his own business better all the time.
One of the reasons I loved working with Tom is people feel they know who he is... I think working with an actor who the audience already has a relationship with actually helps you in a film like this.
For me the greatest source of income is still movies. Nothing - stocks, financial speculation, real estate speculation or businesses - makes more money for me than making movies.
You respect all of these people that you know in the business as actors. And they sort of turn around and say, we really like your work. It's a nice acknowledgment.
It's a required part of your film history to know who Woody is. His movies are so wonderful, and not just funny but so insightful about human behavior.
The secret of business is to know something that nobody else knows.
A child can teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.
Part of being a winner is knowing when enough is enough. Sometimes you have to give up the fight and walk away, and move on to something that's more productive.
I'd like to believe that the people that have supported me in my work or identified with me in films, the people that feel they know me, they do and they don't have misconceptions - they understand. I believe that.
