When I work on a movie, I never aim for records, collections or the number one position. I always concentrate on my work and look for ways to improve my acting abilities. I also advise my co-stars not to concentrate on these pretty issues and just focus on acting.
I love collections of things, but always in moderation.
Sometimes when I speak to groups or I'm interviewed by a journalist, I ask them to imagine their communities without Girl Scouts - to imagine the thousands of food drives and clothing and toy collections that would never take place if not for Girl Scouts.
Anna Maria Chavez
People who have car collections - I never understood that. I always thought that was unnecessary. It's not beautiful, it's not creative. It's just showing how much money you've got.
The universe is incredibly wondrous, incredibly beautiful, and it fills me with a sense that there is some underlying explanation that we have yet to fully understand. If someone wants to place the word 'God' on those collections of words, it's OK with me.
There's a lot of work that goes into it - if you think about how many collections a year that Karl Lagerfeld has to do, with Chanel and all the other things he does - you can't do that unless you are working 18 hours a day. It's really a lot of hard, hard work.
On my birthday, I was in Milan for the collections.
Good short-story collections, like good record albums, are almost always hit-and-miss affairs - successful if they include three or four great tracks, wildly successful if they have five. And that's as it should be.

I check Style.com to look at the collections and love to poke around some of the other fashion blogs to see what's going on.
As music migrates into our iPods, CD collections require less and less room, residing in our heads rather than resounding off the walls. The protracted labor of amassing a personal music library has lost its detective zeal.
Since I'm a fan of collections and anthologies, believe that the best writing often shines in shards and galloping stretches, I never find myself lobbying for a writer I enjoy reading regularly to hole up in Heidegger's hut for four or five years to bring forth a mountain.
Our albums just tend to be collections of songs really, because we all write in the group, all four of us.
You know, it's sort of common wisdom among New York publishers that short story collections don't make money.
I designed collections around whatever struck my fancy... fruits, vegetables, politics, or peacocks! I entered in with no business sense.
I'm not a builder of buildings, I'm a builder of collections.
Since I was a child, my whole life has revolved around music. It's often while listening to a song that ideas for my fashion collections formed.
The older I get, and the more collections I do, the more I'm driven by real style and beauty. My aim is to reveal and not to display women.
Each of our collections is like a movie. We write the script, and this Sicilian woman who has traveled around the world plays the lead role.
In designing my bridal collections, I love mixing luxe fabrics, which give the most beautiful texture and dimension to my creations.
Depending on the season, between 20 and 30 percent of my collections contain some sort of eco or sustainable element, whether it's a beautiful organic fabric or a natural dye. And obviously I don't use animal skins or fur of any kind.
I would just sketch everything that was being made for the collections.
I find some collections to be more vibrant than others, but the designers who last are those who are able to continue to be creative within the mold they have cast, usually right at the beginning of their careers.
With the traditional six-month lead time on the delivery of international show content, designer collections can be outpaced by the so-called fast fashion chains. H&M, Topshop and Zara, or even Target and J. Crew, would have their versions for sale before the designer looks hit the stores.
The Metropolitan Museum has all of our collections online, all our scholarly publications and catalogues since 1965. We have online features like the timeline of art history.
