In The Touch, the love scenes are the same as they were in The Thorn Birds or anything else I’ve ever written. I find a way of saying that either it was heaven or hell but in a way that still leaves room for the reader to use their own imagination.
I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success… such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything.
While I’m quite happy and love doing the atmospheric and quirky stuff, the melodic stuff, I’ve done quite a lot of. It’s also another reason why I try not to do two or three at the same time.
I remember growing up always loving the guitar. I used to love to watch the people play on the Country Western shows on TV. My folks told me that when I was just a toddler, I used to pretend I was playing a guitar on a toothpick.
Let me tell you who we conservatives are: we love people. When we look out over the United States of America, when we are anywhere, when we see a group of people, such as this or anywhere, we see Americans. We see human beings. We don’t see groups. We don’t see victims.
Love is the word used to label the sexual excitement of the young, the habituation of the middle-aged, and the mutual dependence of the old.
I love writing about my job because I loved it, and it was a particularly interesting one when I was a young man. It was like holidays with pay to me.
We can do without butter, but, despite all our love of peace, not without arms. One cannot shoot with butter, but with guns.
I doubt that the Lord cares much which honorable vocation you choose. But He does care if you love one another and serve one another.
A lot of the powerful religious leaders, from Jesus to Buddha to Tibetan monks, they’re really talking about the same things: love and acceptable, and the value of friendship, and respecting yourself so you can respect others.
Setting my mind on a musical instrument was like falling in love. All the world seemed bright and changed.
I had Courtney Love’s left bosom out of her dress on my plate in front of me. It was extraordinary. I didn’t know where to look.
Love of man for woman – love of woman for man. That’s the nature, the meaning, the best of life itself.
I love to fly. I always wanted to fly. It’s been one of my dreams since I was 3 years old. I remember saying to my mom, 3 years old, every day, ‘I can fly!’ Living on the ninth floor, it was dangerous.
Neatness begets order; but from order to taste there is the same difference as from taste to genius, or from love to friendship.
I love working with children and this young boy, Thomas Sangster, is quite a remarkable young actor. He raises your game, you know. He certainly raised mine.
Hopefully this movie will help people understand that if a child is never given the tools to know how to love others and love and respect themselves, this is what happens.
I really love the internet. They say chat-rooms are the trailer park of the internet but I find it amazing.
Therefore we examine with considerable diligence the consensus of the true, learned, and purer antiquity, and we love and praise the testimonies of the fathers which agree with the Scripture.
I listen to archival and historic recordings. I love watching singers. I learned a lot from watching videos.
People who talk about revolution and class struggle without referring explicitly to everyday life, without understanding what is subversive about love and what is positive in the refusal of constraints, such people have a corpse in their mouth.
You know, I have some issues. But I just love to play different characters all the time, and I try not to repeat myself too much.
I really fall in love with my characters, even the bad ones. I love getting together with them. They tell me what to do; they take me on a wild and wonderful trip.
I think the biggest disease the world suffers from in this day and age is the disease of people feeling unloved. I know that I can give love for a minute, for half an hour, for a day, for a month, but I can give. I am very happy to do that, I want to do that.
And then it was working with Bob Hoskins, who I had never worked with before – except radio. It was like being given a wonderful meal – full of the things you love most.
If it is a crime to love the South, its cause and its President, then I am a criminal. I would rather lie down in this prison and die than leave it owing allegiance to a government such as yours.
New England has a harsh climate, a barren soil, a rough and stormy coast, and yet we love it, even with a love passing that of dwellers in more favored regions.
The Singapore Open is the flagship event of the Asian Tour, it is a massive event and it is being played in a great place. I love coming here and it is good to be back.
As far as more recognition goes, I am happy with the amount of love and respect I have received from other artists and the public. Of course, I would love more, and think I deserve it.
There was always a love-hate relationship with New York in the rest of the country, but I made them feel more love than hate.
None of us feels the true love of God till we realize how wicked we are. But you can’t teach people that – they have to learn by experience.
We have to be able to criticise what we love, to say what we have to say ’cause if your not trying to make something better, than as far as I can tell, you are just in the way.
America’s most dangerous diseases have developed an immunity to politics. We suffer not from a failure of political organization or power, but a failure of love.
