Common looking people are the best in the world: that is the reason the Lord makes so many of them.
The Lord commonly gives riches to foolish people, to whom he gives nothing else.
I prefer to be a dreamer among the humblest, with visions to be realized, than lord among those without dreams and desires.
And that if you become a star, people are going to go to see you. If you remain an actor, they're going to go and see the story you're in.
But this is a little different. This is the adult acting. This is a different crowd. It's more work and more good work. That's it. People will have their opinion regardless.
What I say now is that the way the world underestimates me will be my greatest weapon. People pat me on the head, and I go to myself, oh, and aren't they going to be surprised.
It's a waste of time for people to say things they think other people want to hear, or try and come off in a certain way. I try to be as honest as I can.
They say I can open movies, and that's nice in that it puts into people's minds that women can do it. It's not just Kevin Costner, not just Arnold Schwarzenegger. Not just the guys.
I'll accept being Phoebe to people for a while longer, given how much fun it was. That's totally fair.
It's true what people say - that actors are the closest thing there is to children. They play.
Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go so much further than people with vastly superior talent.
There are more people living in Lower Manhattan now than before the terrorist attacks. That's faith for you. There's such a strong spirit here.
I like to tell young people to work hard for your goals and live in the moment.
Time, which changes people, does not alter the image we have retained of them.
You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.
Polling is merely an instrument for gauging public opinion. When a president or any other leader pays attention to poll results, he is, in effect, paying attention to the views of the people. Any other interpretation is nonsense.
I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They always say because it's such a beautiful animal. There you go. I think my mother is attractive, but I have photographs of her.
Theater people are always pining and agonizing because they're afraid that they'll be forgotten. And in America they're quite right. They will be.
I don't want to offend people.
The whole film is about people being convinced that they can reduce themselves to their archetypes.
What the Dalai Lama had to resolve was whether to stay in Tibet or leave. He wanted to stay, but staying would have meant the total destruction of Tibet, because he would have died and that would have ripped the heart out of his people.
The Cuban people have an amazingly strong and unbroken spirit.
The greatest height of heroism to which an individual, like a people, can attain is to know how to face ridicule.
You should not believe your conscience and your feelings more than the word which the Lord who receives sinners preaches to you.
Sometimes I've gotten photographs back and people have literally shaven off pieces of me, and I tell them to put it back.
