J. B. Priestley
I do not want to admit to the world that I can be a bad person. It is just that I don't want anyone to have false expectations. Moviemaking is a harsh, volatile business, and unless you can be ruthless, too, there's a good chance that you are going to disappear off the scene pretty quickly.

Some people have a mistaken idea that all thoughts disappear through meditation and we enter a state of blankness.

It's important not to blame yourself.
Israel, as the Jewish state, must disappear from the map.

Robert Staughton Lynd

As soon as someone tells me: 'You're rather sexy,' I wish I could disappear. If somebody says: 'You were voted the world's sexiest man,' I have no idea what that means. How do I respond? 'Thank you' is the best you can do. George Clooney is the world's sexiest man, anyway.
When DVDs finally disappear, I'm going to be sad. I'll miss the commentaries.

It's not very fashionable, but I love life, and I believe that things disappear and reappear and nothing ever solidifies, no matter how middle-class, housebroken, staid, and solitary someone's life seems to be. That, I think, is what I'm writing about.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
