I love having my hands in the dirt. It is never a science and always an art. There are no rules. And if it comes down to me versus that weed I'm trying to pull out of the ground that doesn't want to come out? I know I'll win.
We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.
Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science.
Science knows only one commandment - contribute to science.
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.
Without philosophy man cannot know what he makes; without religion he cannot know why.
Science does not know its debt to imagination. Goethe did not believe that a great naturalist could exist without this faculty.
It is not enough to know your craft - you have to have feeling. Science is all very well, but for us imagination is worth far more.
You can't be as old as I am without waking up with a surprised look on your face every morning: 'Holy Christ, whaddya know - I'm still around!' It's absolutely amazing that I survived all the booze and smoking and the cars and the career.
I've told Billy if I ever caught him cheating, I wouldn't kill him because I love his children and they need a dad. But I would beat him up. I know where all of his sports injuries are.
I know I can handle dramatic roles, but I don't think I should have to play a young mother on crack to prove it.
Each new film is like a trial. Before I step in front of the camera, I do not know whether I am going to fall or whether I am going to fly - and that is exactly the way I want it to stay.
And you know, life is a constant learning experience. I learn so much with my kids. I read tons of books and study what they're studying.
For know that no one is free, except Zeus.
Men may know many things by seeing; but no prophet can see before the event, nor what end waits for him.
You know, I want to help my country. Definitely I can help them, simply by winning races. Sure, they can follow my path to a good career. But for me it is not enough. I want to be more than that. In everything I want to be a role model.
Everybody knows that the great reversed triangle of land, with its base in the north and its apex in the south, which is called India, embraces fourteen hundred thousand square miles, upon which is spread unequally a population of one hundred and eighty millions of souls.
Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace. The soul that knows it not, knows no release from little things; knows not the livid loneliness of fear.
You have to stay in shape. My grandmother, she started walking five miles a day when she was 60. She's 97 today and we don't know where the hell she is.
How do I do it? I don't know how I wouldn't do it - that's the thing.
Tact in audacity consists in knowing how far we may go too far.
I don't know if there will ever be an ideal way of selling an original picture. Because everything you're doing, you're inventing.
I am the only person in the world I should like to know thoroughly.
Science always has its origin in the adaptation of thought to some definite field of experience.
Politics is not an exact science.
