Favorite Roles In Life Quotes

1. "The writer is the duelist who never fights at the stated hour, who gathers up an insult, like another curious object, a collector's item, spreads it out on his desk later, and then engages in a duel with it verbally. Some people call it weakness. I call it postponement. What is weakness in the man becomes a quality in the writer. For he preserves, collects what will explode later in his work. That is why the writer is the loneliest man in the world; because he lives, fights, dies, is reborn always alone; all his roles are played behind a curtain. In life he is an incongruous figure."
Author: Anaïs Nin
2. "I carried with me into the West End Bar, the White Horse Tavern, a long list of things I would never do: I would never have my hair set in a beauty parlor. I would never move to a suburb and bake cakes or make casseroles. I would never go to a country club dance, although I did like the paper lanterns casting rainbow colors on the terrace. I would never invest in the stock market. I would never play canasta. I would never wear pearls. I would love like a nursling but I would never go near a man who had a portfolio or a set of golf clubs or a business or even a business suit. I would only love a wild thing. I didn't care if wild things tended to break hearts. I didn't care if they substituted scotch for breakfast cereal. I understood that wild things wrote suicide notes to the gods and were apt to show up three hours later than promised. I understood that art was long and life was short."
Author: Anne Roiphe
3. "Context and memory play powerful roles in all the truly great meals in one's life."
Author: Anthony Bourdain
4. "A person who is inherently and intuitively curious is often intellectually and distinctly very serious towards his roles and responsibilities in life."
Author: Anuj Somany
5. "In the time we spend reeling in confusion, grasping at straws trying to piece our egos together, we forget to acknowledge some things. Society created gender roles and categorizations and lifestyles and names and titles because we fear the unknown, especially when the unknown is us.It's as though we're stranded in the middle of an ocean, but we were promised the current would bring us back ashore. We're given all we need on the life raft. As far as we can see, we're being led back, slowly. We don't know when we'll approach the shore, but all evidence points to the fact that we will. But we don't spend our time looking around, enjoying the view, seeing who came with us, and riding out the waves. We sit and panic about what we're doing and why we came here.It doesn't matter where we started because we may never know. It matters where we're going, because that, we do. We begin and we end. We've seen one, so there's only one other option."
Author: Brianna Wiest
6. "Every life has various happier, better as well as agonising roles to enact, scripted by the creator, before it departs the physical being of the bearer. After all, life has never been a cakewalk for anyone!"
Author: Chandrababu V.S.
7. "I have played so many romantic roles that I don't know if I am really a romantic in real life. I get confused about the real me."
Author: Dhanush
8. "I watched them tearing a building down,A gang of men in a busy town.With a ho-heave-ho and a lusty yell, They swung a beam, and the side wall fell.I asked the foreman: "Are these skilled--And the men you'd hire if you had to build?"He gave me a laugh and said: "No, indeed!Just common labor is all I need.I can wreck in a day or twoWhat builders have taken a year to do."And I thought to myself as I went my way,Which of these roles have I tried to play?Am I a builder who works with careMeasuring life by a rule and square?Am I shaping my deeds to a well made Plan,Patiently doing the best I can?Or am I a wrecker, who walks the townContent with the labor of tearing down?"
Author: Edgar A. Guest
9. "It's much easier to play supporting roles because that's what I do in my life: I support my son."
Author: Frances McDormand
10. "Stars — spectacular representations of living human beings — project this general banality into images of permitted roles. As specialists of apparent life, stars serve as superficial objects that people can identify with in order to compensate for the fragmented productive specializations that they actually live. The function of these celebrities is to act out various lifestyles or sociopolitical viewpoints in a full, totally free manner. They embody the inaccessible results of social labor by dramatizing the by-products of that labor which are magically projected above it as its ultimate goals: power and vacations — the decisionmaking and consumption that are at the beginning and the end of a process that is never questioned. On one hand, a governmental power may personalize itself as a pseudostar; on the other, a star of consumption may campaign for recognition as a pseudopower over life. But the activities of these stars are not really free, and they offer no real choices."
Author: Guy Debord
11. "We all have roles in life. I'm a dad, a husband, this and that, but basically I only feel justified in being alive when I'm on the stage."
Author: Jack Bruce
12. "And if that's the case—if we are our remembering selves—then it matters far less how we feel moment to moment with our children. They play rich and crucial roles in our life stories, generating both outsize highs and outsize lows. Without such complexity, we don't feel like we've amounted to much. "You don't have a good story until something deviates from the expected," says McAdams. "And raising children leads to some pretty unexpected happenings."
Author: Jennifer Senior
13. "I've been incredibly blessed with good roles the past few years, but none of them compares to the experience of playing Ellsworth on 'Deadwood.' There are times when I've had as much fun or had comparably great material, but as a body of work, playing Ellsworth tops anything else in my lifetime."
Author: Jim Beaver
14. "Girls see these defined roles they're supposed to follow in life, but when I was a young child, my parents told me I could be anything."
Author: Joan Jett
15. "If there are no other wonderful roles that come my way, I have a quite an interesting, dynamic life."
Author: Karen Allen
16. "You like to assign roles to the people in your life. And when they don't play their parts right, you have a hard time accepting that."
Author: Kasie West
17. "Oh, there are plenty of people," the Duc used to observe, "who never misbehave save when passion spurs them to ill; later, the fire gone out of them, their now calm spirit peacefully returns to the path of virtue and, thus passing their life going from strife to error and from error to remorse, they end their days in such a way there is no telling just what roles they have enacted on earth. Such persons," he would continue, "must surely be miserable: forever drifting, continually undecided, their entire life is spent detesting in the morning what they did the evening before. Certain to repent of the pleasures they taste, they take their delight in quaking, in such sort they become at once virtuous in crime and criminal in virtue."
Author: Marquis De Sade
18. "Whatever is said about roles drying up, I intend to keep working. Certainly now the roles couldn't be more interesting - playing mothers, divorcees. I think it's going to be exciting to play a mother of teenagers. The longer your life, the deeper it gets."
Author: Naomi Watts
19. "Last week I was in London at an awards show, then I flew home and was in an RV park with my wife and kids in our motorhome, this week I'm in NY doing a charity event, and tomorrow I'll be coaching my daughters soccer practice. I guess the range of roles I play on film stem from the range of roles I play in real life."
Author: Peter Facinelli
20. "LAW 25Re-Create YourselfDo not accept the roles that society foists on you. Re-create yourself by forging a new identity, one that commands attention and never bores the audience. Be the master of your own image rather than letting others define if for you. Incorporate dramatic devices into your public gestures and actions – your power will be enhanced and your character will seem larger than life."
Author: Robert Greene
21. "In the movies, they make you look good and tough, but in real life, it's completely the opposite. I do these ueber roles, I think, because in real life I'm quite shy and reserved. In real life, I'm a dork."
Author: Sam Worthington
22. "Even I don't know myself... In fact, I don't know if I really have a self at all, as I'm constantly playing different roles and pretending – not so much on stage as in real life..."
Author: Simona Panova
23. "The following evening John left with Lady Shorne for the south of France, without so much as a word to me."Alexa felt as if she were hearing that fateful cliche for the first time. "Without so much as a word." No matter how much she tried to see it from every point of view, its meaning was always clear. John was a coward. Anne was his victim. The roles were the opposite of what she had supposed. It was Anne who had been heroic, not John. John was a coward, a mere puppet into whom both Anne and Alexa had managed to breathe a semblance of life. He was as much the creation of one as of the other."
Author: Violet Trefusis
24. "It's hard to deny life's little ironies. Wrong place, wrong roles, but united in our commitment to life's young dream. And yet, our bodies were already tarnished and our minds beyond yelp."
Author: Weihui Zhou
