Once you identify your inner genius, you will be able to take action, whether it's writing a check or digging a well.
Sue Monk Kidd

I think I have been stereotyped as an action director in Hollywood, so all I got were the action scripts.
There is absolutely no Wuxia or martial arts in 'Red Cliff.' I want all the action to look realistic.
Now here is a departure from the first principle of true ethics. Here we find ideas of moral wrong and moral right associated with something else than beneficial action. The consequent is, we lose sight of the real basis of morals, and substitute a false one.
Our religious belief usurps the place of our sensations, our imaginations of our judgment. We no longer look to actions, trace their consequences, and then deduce the rule; we first make the rule, and then, right or wrong, force the action to square with it.

Daniel D. Palmer

I have a lot of brothers. It's easy for me to do physical stuff. I had to survive. I really love it, and I'd love to do more of it. I want to do action films. I want to go and hang off of wires, and jump off of bridges, and hang on bungee cords. I've always really loved it.

I was always trying, even in pure action movies, to find what was sensitive about the character more than the pure action.
It may be a mistake to say this, but I know my limitations as an actor and I know what I can and can not do. Robert De Niro can do everything. I can't. A 'Highlander' movie is basically my thing.

Like the canary in the coal mine, the climate changes already evident in the Arctic are a call to action.
