Not every truth is the better for showing its face undisguised; and often silence is the wisest thing for a man to heed.
In films murders are always very clean. I show how difficult it is and what a messy thing it is to kill a man.
Hateful to me as the gates of Hades is that man who hides one thing in his heart and speaks another.
It is a base thing for a man among the people not to obey those in command. Never in a state can the laws be well administered when fear does not stand firm.
A man can do all things if he but wills them.
Love him or hate him, Trump is a man who is certain about what he wants and sets out to get it, no holds barred. Women find his power almost as much of a turn-on as his money.
When I was doing Bean more than I've done him in the last few years, I did strange things - like appearing on chat shows in character as Mr. Bean.
There are things which a man is afraid to tell even to himself, and every decent man has a number of such things stored away in his mind.
The things I want to know are in books; my best friend is the man who'll get me a book I ain't read.
Beware when the great God lets loose a thinker on this planet. Then all things are at risk. It is as when a conflagration has broken out in a great city, and no man knows what is safe, or where it will end. There is not a piece of science, but its flank may be turned to-morrow; there is not any literary reputation, not the so-called eternal names of fame, that may not be revised and condemned. The very hopes of man, the thoughts of his heart, the religion of nations, the manners and morals of mankind, are all at the mercy of a new generalization. Generalization is always a new influx of the divinity into the mind. Hence the thrill that attends it.
But on the whole, nothing requires unbearable energy for me, it's just a normal thing.
A man's manners are a mirror in which he shows his portrait.
I hate women because they always know where things are.
The only thing he ought to consider, if he does anything, is whether he does right or wrong, whether it is what a good man does or a bad man.
But O, how bitter a thing it is to look into happiness through another man's eyes.
A man in the house is worth two in the street.
A mathematical theory is not to be considered complete until you have made it so clear that you can explain it to the first man whom you meet on the street.
Before success comes in any man's life, he's sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to quit. That's exactly what the majority of men do.
All things must; man is the only creature that wills.
The plain man is familiar with blindness and deafness, and knows from his everyday experience that the look of things is influenced by his senses; but it never occurs to him to regard the whole world as the creation of his senses.
The cruelest thing a man can do to a woman is to portray her as perfection.
It is a waste of energy to be angry with a man who behaves badly, just as it is to be angry with a car that won't go.
Things have dropped from me. I have outlived certain desires; I have lost friends, some by death... others through sheer inability to cross the street.
This kind of pastry, yes. This is what my favorite thing, what I really like. Also, extremely fine French cooking was never the thing I preferred.
I hate the way market forces try to separate us out in to the appropriate demographic - basically in order to sell us things. We need to find stories that we can enjoy together, not separately.
