Michael Mann Quotes

"As filmmakers, we want the audience to have the most complete experience they can. For example, I interviewed Stanley Kubrick years ago around the time of 2001: A Space Odyssey. I was going to see the film that night in London, and he insisted I sit in one of four seats in the theater for the best view or not watch the film."

Dakota Fanning Quotes

"ER was one of my favourites. I played a car accident victim who has leukemia. I got to wear a neck brace and nose tubes for the two days I worked."

David Agus Quotes

"I want doctors to treat toward health and not treat toward disease."

Daniele Sallenave Quotes

"Malgré les fanatiques, il serait extrêmement dangereux dimporter en France la thèse dun «choc de civilisations» entre le monde musulman et nous. Ne faisons pas de lIslam le miroir où toutes nos difformités seffacent. Ne renouvelons pas lerreur de nous forger un ennemi pour éviter de nous interroger sur nous-mêmes.Or, quel modèle proposons-nous ? Un monde dominé par largent et le sexe. Des sociétés dépolitisées, sans défense contre la montée des communautarismes. Des sociétés délaïcisées, où sévit lalliance explosive de la religion et de la techno-science. Il nous faut retrouver une parole libre. Désigner haut et fort la menace que font peser les communautés, les identités collectives, les religions — toutes les religions —, sur la paix civile et la liberté individuelle. Refuser le scandale dune pensée asservie à des dogmes. Osons être en toutes choses des athées résolus, méthodiques et gais."

Monica Edwards Quotes

"We are in an electronic technology age now and its about time we put away the old stuff."

Ankur Kumar Shah Quotes

"Dreams and Happiness are...drugs. And the pain that follows is not less than a sharp knife...or a sharp-nail. It bleeds without blood. You just feel it. With every sense you have got, on every single inch of earth, in every tiny part of the minute you live. It compels you to feed...yourself..."

Catherine Keller Quotes

"The abiding western dominology can with religion sanction identify anything dark, profound, or fluid with a revolting chaos, an evil to be mastered, a nothing to be ignored. God had made us master organizers of the world to establish system where chaos reigns. He has made us adept in government that we may administer government among savages and senile peoples. From the vantage point of the colonizing episteme, the evil is always disorder rather than unjust order; anarchy rather than control, darkness rather than pallor. To plead otherwise is to write carte blanche for chaos. Yet those who wear the mark of chaos, the skins of darkness, the genders of unspeakable openings -- those Others of Order keep finding voice. But they continue to be muted by the bellowing of the dominant discourse."

Bob Graham Quotes

"Today 80 percent of all the oil that comes out of the Gulf is from 1,000 feet or more and today almost a third of it is more than 5,000 feet below the surface. What hasnt happened is the safety and the ability to respond to a negative event such as this blowout, has been far outrun by the technology of drilling itself. We need to close that gap."

Lloyd John Ogilvie Quotes

"But one of the saddest, most deprecating misuses of power is the withholding of love, affirmation, and delight from other people. Few things keep people in line with our wishes more than an attitude of reserve or aloofness. It is paradoxical that in the power struggle of relationships, the one who loves and encourages the least, gains the most power. This puts people on edge, keeps them guessing, and plays on their need for assurance about their worth."

Dylan Thomas McCall Quotes

"If Id been a cowboy, it mightve ended well.Somewhere on the ramble, Im sure Id have to sellMy guns along the highway. My coins to the table To make a gamblers double, Id double debts to pay.Probly shrink and slink away, It mightntve ended well.What If Id been a sailor? I think it mightve ended well.From August to MayFor a searat of man drifting through eternal blue, aboard the finest Debris.I mightve called the shanties. From daybreak to storms set, lines stay Taught, over rhythm unbroken.But, oh, theres a schism unspoken, a mighty calling of the lee.An absentminded Pirate, unaccustomed to the sea;To the land, a traitor. I think it mightntve ended well. What mightve worked for me? What mightve ended well?Soldier, to bloody sally forth through hell?Teacher of glorious stories to tell?Man of gold, or stores to sell?Lover to a gentle belle? Maybe a camel;A seashell.What mightntve been a life where it mightntve ended well?"

Quotes About The Fantastical

"Atoms, in short, are very abundant. They are also fantastically durable. Because they are so long lived, atoms really get around. Every atom you possess has almost certainly passed through several stars and been part of millions of organisms on its way to becoming you. We are each so atomically numerous and so vigorously recycled at death that a significant number of our atoms-- up to a billion for each of us, it has been suggested-- probably once belonged to Shakespeare." - Author: Bill Bryson

Quotes About Ultimate

"Cosmologists have attempted to account for the day-to-day laws you find in textbooks in terms of fundamental superlaws, but the superlaws themselves must still be accepted as brute facts. So maybe the ultimate laws of nature will always be off-limits to science." - Author: Paul Davies

Quotes About Deception Of Love

"We tend to be taken aback by the thought that God could be angry. how can a deity who is perfect and loving ever be angry?...We take pride in our tolerance of the excesses of others. So what is Gods problem?... But love detests what destroys the beloved. Real love stands against the deception, the lie, the sin that destroys. Nearly a century ago the theologian E.H. Glifford wrote: Human love here offers a true analogy: the more a father loves his son, the more he hates in him the drunkard, the liar, the traitor.... Anger isnt the opposite of love. Hate is, and the final form of hate is indifference... How can a good God forgive bad people without compromising himself? Does he just play fast and loose with the facts? Oh, never mind...boys will be boys. Try telling that to a survivor of the Cambodian killing fields or to someone who lost an entire family in the Holocaust. No. To be truly good one has to be outraged by evil and implacably hostile to injustice." - Author: Rebecca Manley Pippert

Quotes About Semblance

"So successfully have we disguised from ourselves the intensity of our own feelings, the sensibility of our own hearts, that plays in the tragic tradition have begun to seem untrue. For a couple of hours we may surrender ourselves to a world of fiercely illuminated values in conflict, but when the stage is covered and the auditorium lighted, almost immediately there is a recoil of disbelief. "Well, well!" we say as we shuffle back up the aisle, while the play dwindles behind us with the sudden perspective of an early Chirico painting. By the time we have arrived at Sardis, if not as soon as we pass beneath the marquee, we have convinced ourselves once more that life has as little resemblance to the curiously stirring and meaningful occurrences on the stage as a jingle has to an elegy of Rilke." - Author: Tennessee Williams

Quotes About Partying With Family

"That time period is clearly a season of holidays. A holiday season. No matter what faith you belong to or what tradition you follow, everyone is partying. Youre shopping, youre cooking, youre getting together with family, youre eating food thats bad for you, youre eating more food thats bad for you, and of course youre eating food thats bad for you." - Author: Jim Gaffigan

Quotes About Fear In Things Fall Apart

"There is a mirror across from me, and I check my reflection in it before heading home. Despite the bone-deep fatigue and the growing fear and frustration, I look…fine. Da always said hed teach me to play cards. Said Id take the bank, the way things never reach my eyes. There should be something—a tell, a crease between my eyes, or a tightness in my jaw. Im too good at this. Behind my reflection I see the painting of the sea, slanting as if the waves crashing on the rocks have hit with enough force to tip the picture. I turn and straighten it. The frame makes a faint rattling sound when I do. Everything in this place seems to be falling apart." - Author: Victoria Schwab
