No man can purchase his virtue too dear, for it is the only thing whose value must ever increase with the price it has cost us. Our integrity is never worth so much as when we have parted with our all to keep it.
It is better wither to be silent, or to say things of more value than silence. Sooner throw a pearl at hazard than an idle or useless word; and do not say a little in many words, but a great deal in a few.
You have to struggle a bit, hustle a little, and be willing to go bankrupt. Once you're willing to do that, everything opens up and you get the freedom. My joke is that next year, I'll make the first film that costs zero dollars.

Words do not express thoughts very well. They always become a little different immediately after they are expressed, a little distorted, a little foolish.
O conscience, upright and stainless, how bitter a sting to thee is a little fault!
False facts are highly injurious to the progress of science, for they often endure long; but false views, if supported by some evidence, do little harm, for every one takes a salutary pleasure in proving their falseness.
Stand a little less between me and the sun.
To suffer the penalty of too much haste, which is too little speed.
One must maintain a little bittle of summer, even in the middle of winter.
I was always a character actor. I just looked like Little Red Riding Hood.
You have to be a little unreal to be in this business.
If you add a little to a little and do this often, soon the little will become great.
Science, my lad, is made up of mistakes, but they are mistakes which it is useful to make, because they lead little by little to the truth.

Well, I was into music since I was a kid, ya know, back in Detroit. I say Detroit, but it was really a little suburb outside the city called Romeo.
