Why, except as a means of livelihood, a man should desire to act on the stage when he has the whole world to act in, is not clear to me.
George Bernard Shaw
Fear doesn't exist anywhere except in the mind.
The battle is all over except the 'shouting' when one knows what is wanted and has made up his mind to get it, whatever the price may be.
There is no possible source of evil except good.
It's a great country, where anybody can grow up to be president... except me.
But whoever gives birth to useless children, what would you say of him except that he has bred sorrows for himself, and furnishes laughter for his enemies.
The great work must inevitably be obscure, except to the very few, to those who like the author himself are initiated into the mysteries. Communication then is secondary: it is perpetuation which is important. For this only one good reader is necessary.
There is little for the great part of the history of the world except the bitter tears of pity and the hot tears of wrath.

Joyce Carol Oates

I have never described the time I was in Doctor Who as anything except a kind of ecstatic success, but all the rest has been rather a muddle and a disappointment. Compared to Doctor Who, it has been an outrageous failure really - it's so boring.
