I think we're going to the moon because it's in the nature of the human being to face challenges. It's by the nature of his deep inner soul... we're required to do these things just as salmon swim upstream.
Art is the right hand of Nature. The latter has only given us being, the former has made us men.
Human beliefs, like all other natural growths, elude the barrier of systems.
What constitutes a real, live human being is more of a mystery than ever these days, and men each one of whom is a valuable, unique experiment on the part of nature are shot down wholesale.
Poetry is emotion put into measure. The emotion must come by nature, but the measure can be acquired by art.
The human consciousness is really homogeneous. There is no complete forgetting, even in death.
The natural cause of the human mind is certainly from credulity to skepticism.
Art is the human disposition of sensible or intelligible matter for an esthetic end.
What is tolerance? It is the consequence of humanity. We are all formed of frailty and error; let us pardon reciprocally each other's folly - that is the first law of nature.
Its unfortunate and I really wish I wouldn't have to say this, but I really like human beings who have suffered. They're kinder.
The really courageous and bold thing is to make movies about human behaviour.
Envy is human nature.
The structure of life I have described in buildings - the structure which I believe to be objective - is deeply and inextricably connected with the human person, and with the innermost nature of human feeling.
I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.
To insult someone we call him "bestial." For deliberate cruelty and nature, "human" might be the greater insult.
I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.
What is art? Nature concentrated.
The most momentous thing in human life is the art of winning the soul to good or evil.
I am really not of the school of naturalism. I like style, and you can use more style in theater than in film roles. I love to sink my teeth into a part.
The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art.
No man really knows about other human beings. The best he can do is to suppose that they are like himself.
Were I called on to define, very briefly, the term Art, I should call it 'the reproduction of what the Senses perceive in Nature through the veil of the soul.' The mere imitation, however accurate, of what is in Nature, entitles no man to the sacred name of 'Artist.'
The whole aspect of cinema and film festivals should be a moment to come together and celebrate art and humanity. It would be a shame if there was such a divide.
I wanted to make an Indian character who wasn't either a) the savage that must be eliminated, the force of nature that's blocking the way for industrial progress, or b) the noble innocent that knows all and is another cliche. I wanted him to be a complicated human being.
We discovered that education is not something which the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being.
