I visualize a time when we will be to robots what dogs are to humans, and I’m rooting for the machines.
My role 14 years ago in Richard III – that was the first time I played a bad guy and learned a lot about it – they have all the fun!
A time will come when a politician who has willfully made war and promoted international dissension will be as sure of the dock and much surer of the noose than a private homicide. It is not reasonable that those who gamble with men’s lives should not stake their own.
I like to share my life, and spend time with someone I love. That has worked 100 per cent with my wife.
The great thing about the business is how Darwinian it is. We have to swim or die – if you are found wanting over a period of time, you’ve either got to change what you’re doing or find something else to do.
In my time and neighborhood (and in my soul) there was only one standard by which a woman measured success: did some man want her?
In spite of the Depression, or maybe because of it, folks were hungry for a good time, and an evening of dancing seemed a good way to have it.
Life does not stand still for families and local communities when our brave men and women are deployed, but we can make their time apart more bearable by recognizing their sacrifice and fulfilling our commitments to them.
My youth passed at the time of the country’s reconstruction from the ruins and ashes of the war in which my nation never bowed to the enemy paying the highest price in the struggle.
Tim on the show does a lot of that posturing, of course, and feels sort of threatened by women. But even at that, you do see him cooking, and ultimately he’s a good father because he spends a lot of time with the boys.
For example, I spent a lot of time with Reagan, both before he ran for governor and when he was running for president. As a print reporter without the cameras, I was able to really test the quality of their minds and their knowledge base.
I don’t know if it’s a movement, but the only thing new that’s happening is that I think music and art and video and fashion are all kind of thrown into one big ball that’s on television, and people see that all the time – you see a fusion of all those things.
Movies are not about the weekend that they’re released, and in the grand scheme of things, that’s probably the most unimportant time of a film’s life.
For the first time in a while, I must be honest, I really genuinely look forward to coming to work every day.
Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.
Our passions are like convulsion fits, which, though they make us stronger for a time, leave us the weaker ever after.
And um, when I came back to England I put a very complex soundtrack on it, featuring everyone from Jimi Hendrix, right through to Neil Diamond, you know, everybody that was kind of popular who was kind of popular at that time.
We have to put in our time every day to try and achieve and learn so that we can develop our talents and each of you, thank goodness, have special talents; each of you are special persons.
Linda Hamilton is my hero. She was so tough and so strong and so vulnerable at the same time. I think that’s what woman action figures are allowed to be: vulnerable, in a way that women are.
It is all about being open and paying attention to the music in your head. I think most people have original music playing in their heads from time to time.
It was a joy to be a part of the team that created Round The Horne. I was involved with the show at a time of my life when I was very happy., and that happiness overflowed into the scripts.
I think that one of the nice things about the Yellow Submarine movie is that it seems to be perennial. People enjoy watching from each generation. And it was like the Beatles themselves. You know the Beatles seem to find new audience each time another generation comes along.
American time has stretched around the world. It has become the dominant tempo of modern history, especially of the history of Europe.
I don’t say we are a defensive team. I say we are a strong team in defensive terms, but at the same time lacking sufficient fluidity in attack because that will take time to come.
Jerry reversed the usual formula of the superhero who goes to another planet. He put the superhero in ordinary, familiar surroundings, instead of the other way around, as was done in most science fiction. That was the first time I can recall that it had ever been done.
I suppose the reason I chose electrical engineering was because I had always been interested in electricity, involving myself in such projects as building radios from the time I was a child.
You have to pack as much as you can in an hour or 70 minutes. This time around it was 15 songs, so it was a challenge to get them all the right length so you could get them all on.
In the family sandwich, the older people and the younger ones can recognize one another as the bread. Those in the middle are, for a time, the meat.
Honesty is the cruelest game of all, because not only can you hurt someone – and hurt them to the bone – you can feel self-righteous about it at the same time.
I learned early on, having known the most handsome, successful, Gary Cooper, Clark Gable, Robert Taylor, don’t ever spend too much time looking in the mirror.
It probably goes without saying that I enjoy the potato pancakes, delicious hams and so forth that maddeningly turn up at this time of year.
When George asked me to be the prequels, it was the same kind of meeting – it was very short and to the point. It was nice to see him after a long time, and we met in a hotel room.
This is an exciting time. I believe we stand at the edge of a new age – a Golden Age – of freedom that will rival any of the great eras of world history because it will be the entire world itself that is changing.
