All I am hoping for is to be able to work-I think my best work is still ahead of me-I think all that I have been through in the last several years have only made me a better, more interesting actor.
I think we have very steady records of President Putin, who inherited the country with democratic values.
Meditation means cleansing the mirror, dropping thoughts, letting thoughts disappear, attaining to moments when thinking ceases.
You think that it is because I have3 an income which exempts me from your day-labour, that I waste (as you call it) my time in sun-gazing and star-gazing.? You do not know me.? If my debts, as they threaten, should consume what money I have, I should live just as I do now: I should eat worse food, and wear a courser coat, and should wander in a potato patch instead of in the wood?- but it is I, not my twelve hundred dollars a year that love God.
This is where I have wasted the best years of my life.
I am sorry to think that you do not get a man's most effective criticism until you provoke him. Severe truth is expressed with some bitterness.
This is the manner of noble souls: they do not want to have anything for nothing; least of all, life. Whoever is of the mob wants to live for nothing; we others, however, to whom life gave itself, we always think about what we might best give in return... One should not wish to enjoy where one does not give joy.
If I'd had some set idea of a finish line, don't you think I would have crossed it years ago?
Roger and I are now in our 20th year and I think people tune in because they know that for better or for worse, these are our opinions.
You do the best job you can. You take it step by step. It's hard enough to make a movie. If it works, that's great. If it means something beyond the moment to somebody, they can take it and it lasts through the years, we'll see.
All political thinking for years past has been vitiated in the same way. People can foresee the future only when it coincides with their own wishes, and the most grossly obvious facts can be ignored when they are unwelcome.
I mean, the Constitution of this country was written 200 years ago. The house I was living in in Madrid is 350 years old! America is still a project, and you guys are working on it and bringing new things to it every day. That is beautiful to watch.
I did think for many, many years that because of my ability I could beat the system. And I was wrong.
A lot of great people have seen people portray them and loathed them. But I did my best and I don't think there is anything to be offended at.
The best augury of a man's success in his profession is that he thinks it the finest in the world.
I'm still number one and I just recently won a major tournament ahead of my toughest rivals so I think I had a few years ahead of me if I decided to stay.
I think it's still hard for me to turn down work if it's really good because for so many years I was so desperate to get a job and couldn't and so it's kind of an anathema for me to turn down work.
I think dress, hairstyle and make-up are the crucial factors in projecting an attractive persona and give one the chance to enhance one's best physical features.
I don't think the English like me. I sold a colossal best seller in America, and they never really forgave me.
Believe me, you can get into a lot of trouble being sixteen years old in a foreign country with no adult telling you when to come home.
I don't see women and think of them as competition or with judgment. Women really move me. I feel connected to all kinds of women. I am angry because I think we've been mistreated throughout history in different countries, including America. I admire women.
People must not think that all bad in man which is unleashed, the moment you impose censorship disappears from man.
After about 20 years of marriage, I'm finally starting to scratch the surface of what women want. And I think the answer lies somewhere between conversation and chocolate.
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.
No press conference announcing a last film. I'd just steal away. Best way because, if by chance after two or three years something interesting comes up, I would not - like Sinatra - have to say: "Well, I've thought it over and decided to come back."
