A writer should have this little voice inside of you saying, Tell the truth. Reveal a few secrets here.
I speak the truth, not so much as I would, but as much as I dare; and I dare a little more as I grow older.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more honourable but more useful than a life spent in doing nothing.
When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.
I like someone who is a little crazy but coming from a good place. I think scars are sexy because it means you made a mistake that led to a mess.
A good man often appears gauche simply because he does not take advantage of the myriad mean little chances of making himself look stylish. Preferring truth to form, he is not constantly at work upon the facade of his appearance.
Science is properly more scrupulous than dogma. Dogma gives a charter to mistake, but the very breath of science is a contest with mistake, and must keep the conscience alive.
Any road followed precisely to its end leads precisely nowhere. Climb the mountain just a little bit to test it's a mountain. From the top of the mountain, you cannot see the mountain.
False facts are highly injurious to the progress of science, for they often endure long; but false views, if supported by some evidence, do little harm, for every one takes a salutary pleasure in proving their falseness.
There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.
Now, there is always a tremendous fear of science and progressing forward into areas of the unknown and it is a valid fear. Some of the genetic alterations of food are a little edgy.
I love rehearsing because in rehearsals there are no mistakes, nothing is wrong, some things apply or lead you to focus on the character and the things that don't apply are equally valuable because they lead you to towards what does.
Why does this magnificent applied science, which saves work and makes life easier, bring us little happiness? The simple answer runs: because we have not yet learned to make sensible use of it.
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.
I like science fiction movies, but I think they are useful for giving us ideas and I think science fiction is very good at giving ideas.
I did, although I didn't read from page 1 to page 187 but I read chunks of it. I did a little bit of science when I was in the university so I was able to understand the graphs and pie charts and stuff like that. It was extremely dry.
It is not because the truth is too difficult to see that we make mistakes... we make mistakes because the easiest and most comfortable course for us is to seek insight where it accords with our emotions - especially selfish ones.
The great thieves lead away the little thief.
Science has not yet mastered prophecy. We predict too much for the next year and yet far too little for the next 10.
Actually I did, because I saw the film like everyone else, ten years ago and I remembered some of it. I just wanted to see it, to kind of remember the tone a little bit.
Making films is really hard, and if it has anything that's a little bit out of the mainstream, then it's really hard to get made.
I would rather be first in a little Iberian village than second in Rome.
No human being will ever know the Truth, for even if they happen to say it by chance, they would not even known they had done so.
No face which we can give to a matter will stead us so well at last as the truth. This alone wears well.
When in doubt tell the truth.
