But the whole point of liberation is that you get out. Restructure your life. Act by yourself.
I think I have always tried to do the smaller films. I like to jump around and there is something really nice for acting in a smaller film. But I think now, Hollywood's movies certainly involve a younger generation for the most part and so... I love going back and forth.
To be doing good deeds is man's most glorious task.
Stupidity talks, vanity acts.
Acting... was the biggest charge I ever had. What other artist has it so good? Approval so quick?
When you are getting ready to become a mom, being in love with someone just isn't enough. You need to think about whether he would be a good parent and raise your children with similar beliefs.
Good actions ennoble us, and we are the sons of our deeds.
The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew.
The distinction between children and adults, while probably useful for some purposes, is at bottom a specious one, I feel. There are only individual egos, crazy for love.
During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
The attempt and not the deed confounds us.
No action is ever an isolated event. Always, it invites from the universe a reaction that corresponds exactly to the type and the force of energy behind the deed.
An acting assistant stage manager in a theater in Canterbury, a rep theater. A small wage but just enough to get by on, and I made props and I walked on, and I changed scenery, and I realized that I just loved it.
In the studio system, things are expected of a film. By the first, second, third act, there's a generic language that comes out of the more commercial system.
I like movies about longing and desperation, and dark and light things, stories about people struggling to raise children, and to have relationships and be intimate with each other.
Raising children is an uncertain thing; success is reached only after a life of battle and worry.
Little children are still the symbol of the eternal marriage between love and duty.
It is thought and feeling which guides the universe, not deeds.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
I am trying to teach my children to feel a responsibility for their fellow human beings and a sense of connection with... the world around them.
The secret of getting things done is to act!
Leave it as it is. The ages have been at work on it and man can only mar it.
A warrior must learn to make every act count, since he is going to be here in this world for only a short while, in fact, too short for witnessing all the marvels of it.
But if you ask what is the good of education in general, the answer is easy; that education makes good men, and that good men act nobly.
Begin thus from the first act, and proceed; and, in conclusion, at the ill which thou hast done, be troubled, and rejoice for the good.
