"In the end I think theatre has only one subject: justice."

Sam Claflin Quotes

"In England, when were at drama school, we spend a lot of time learning the craft from playwrights and stage actors, who are very well trained in the basics of acting because they need to get it right the first time - you cant have second or third takes when youre in front of a live audience, unlike in film."

"One day at a time, sweet Jesus. Whoever wrote that one hadnt a clue. A day is a fuckin eternity"

Morton Hunt Quotes

"Being a good psychoanalyst, in short, has the same disadvantage as being a good parent: The children desert one as they grow up."

Kenneth JW Craik Quotes

"If I ever conceive any original idea, it will be because I have been abnormally prone to confuse ideas ... and I have thus found remote analogies and relations which others have not considered! Others rarely make these confusions, and proceed by precise analysis."

Howard Crosby Quotes

"A wisely chosen illustration is almost essential to fasten the truth upon the ordinary mind, and no teacher can afford to neglect this part of his preparation."

Suge Knight Quotes

"I am in the penitentiary. The only thing that I do is my time."

Ari Berk Quotes

"The hours must be endured and those who cannot do so in life will most surely do so in death. You say you cannot face them? Lifes joys and pains both? You shall find them waiting for you, a world of ignored moments there to be explored. Then shall you know how long an hour can be, shall feel the awful depth and restlessness of even a single day, and all the days you fled from life while you were alive."

Quotes About Family Ancestors

"Being Southerners, it was a source of shame to some members of the family that we had no recorded ancestors on either side of the Battle of Hastings." - Author: Harper Lee

Quotes About Mans Intelligence

"Dogs (like rats) are multitalented but they are also not very smart the way humans are. A recent book, devoted to the intelligence of dogs, is 250+ pages long (Stanley Coren, The Intelligence of Dogs: A Guide to the Thoughts, Emotions, and Inner Lives of Our Canine Companions, 1994). Interestingly, despite careful qualifications by Coren regarding definitions, the ranking of breeds by intelligence literally made newspaper headlines. We are obviously fascinated by the notion that dogs - or at least certain breeds of dog - might, just might, be really, really smart. It all makes as much sense as evaluating humans on our ability to sniff for bombs or echo-locate." - Author: Jean Donaldson

Quotes About Mental Notes

"Once youre labeled as mentally ill, and thats in your medical notes, then anything you say can be discounted as an artefact of your mental illness." - Author: Hilary Mantel

Quotes About Shorthand

"But the trouble with sainthood these days is the robe-and-halo imagery that gets stuck onto it." Carl got that brooding look again. "People forget that robes were street clothes once... and still are, in a lot of places. And halos are to that fierce air of innocence what speech balloons in comics are to the sound of the voice itself. Shorthand. But most people just see an old symbol and dont bother looking behind it for the meaning. Sainthood starts to look old-fashioned, unattainable... even repellent. Actually, you can see it all around, once you learn to spot it." - Author: Diane Duane

Quotes About X Rays

"It was a woman in Minnesota who clarified this shift for me. She pointed out that her mother called herself a housewife. She, on the other hand, called herself a stay at home mom. The change in nomenclature reflects the shift in cultural emphasis: the pressures on women have gone from keeping an immaculate house to being an irreproachable mom … Back in the fifties, women were told to master the differences between oven cleaners and floor wax and special sprays for wood; today theyre told to master the differences between toys that hone problem solving skills and those that encourage imaginative play." - Author: Jennifer Senior

Quotes About Xav

"The water was lapping around my waist by the time Ivy and Gabriel found me. I was shivering, but I hardly noticed. I didnt move or speak, not even when Gabriel lifted me out of the water and carried me back to our house. Ivy helped me into the shower, and came to help me out half an hour later when Id forgotten where I was and just stood under the pounding water. Gabriel bought me some dinner, but I couldnt eat it. I sat on my bed, staring into space and doing nothing but thinking of Xavier and trying not to think of him at the same time. The separation made me realize just how safe I felt with him. I craved his touch, his smell, even the awareness that he was nearby. But now he felt miles away, and I couldnt reach him, and that knowledge made me feel ready to crumble, to cease to exist." - Author: Alexandra Adornetto

Quotes About Trojan

"I grabbed his hand and dragged him down the street to a convenience shop. I abandoned him once inside and went down the stationery aisle. Id already known I wanted to get him some colored pencils, but now I finally had the occasion to do it. Not long after Id picked out a big box of them, I heard Rafael call out from another part of the store, "Trojans? Like The Iliad?"I didnt waste a second finding him and pulling him out of that aisle." - Author: Rose Christo

Quotes About Roller

"Its been a rollercoaster ride. There have been some great moments and some low points... like when I was leaving Stax. Thats when I actually thought of getting out of the business." - Author: William Bell

Quotes About Bed Of Roses

"Renouncing false beliefs will not usher in the millennium. Few things about the strategy of contemporary apologists are more repellent than their frequent recourse to spurious alternatives. The lesser lights inform us that the alternative to Christianity is materialism, thus showing how little they have read, while the greater lights talk as if the alternative were bound to be a shallow and inane optimism. I dont believe that man will turn this earth into a bed of roses either with the aid of God or without it. Nor does life among the roses strike me as a dream from which one would not care to wake up after a very short time." - Author: Walter Kaufmann

Quotes About Intuition And God

"At times we have to step into Gods silence and patiently wait. We have to put out the fleece as Gideon did (Judges 6:37-40), and wait for the descent of the divine dew, or some kind of confirmation from God that we are on the right course. That is a good way to keep our own ego drive out of the way.Yet there are other times when we need to go ahead and act on our own best intuitions and presume that God is guiding us and will guide us. But even then we must finally wait for the divine backup. Sometimes that is even the greater act of faith and courage, and takes even more patience. What if the divine dew does not fall? What do we do then?When either waiting or moving forward is done out of a spirit of union and surrender, we can trust that God will make good out of it—even if we are mistaken! It is not about being correct, it is about being connected." - Author: Richard Rohr
