Grace is the beauty of form under the influence of freedom.
Delay is the deadliest form of denial.
C. Northcote Parkinson
A man's character always takes its hue, more or less, from the form and color of things about him.
I had been asking the universe and God to send me a way for me to help me. Show business has been so wonderful to me, and it came in the form of that. It's just so funny how things come into your life, and if you take a chance on them, it might give you a brand new life.
Deprived of the opportunity to judge one another by the cars we drive, New Yorkers, thrown together daily on mass transit, form silent opinions based on our choices of subway reading. Just by glimpsing the cover staring back at us, we can reach the pinnacle of carnal desire or the depths of hatred. Soul mate or mortal enemy.
If you bend a branch until it's horizontal, the sap will slow to a stopping point: a comma or colon, made of leaves grown into one another and over one another and hardened. Out of this pause comes a flower, which unfolds itself in spirals, as if the leaf form, unable to keep to its line, had begun to pivot.
I write on big yellow legal pads - ideas in outline form when I'm doing stand-up and stuff. It's vivid that way. I can't type it into an iPad - I think that would put a filter into the process.
Before machines the only form of entertainment people really had was relationships.
If one wants another only for some self-satisfaction, usually in the form of sensual pleasure, that wrong desire takes the form of lust rather than love.
Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what next or how. The moment you know how, you begin to die a little.
Agnes de Mille
That was when I realised that music is the most profound, magical form of communication there is.
I don't oppose hunting in any way, shape or form. If that's what you enjoy doing, you are free to do it.
Music is the most powerful form of communication in the world. It brings us all together. Even religion separates us, but a hit record unites us across religious beliefs, race, politics.
I think men, growing up, you have to go through some form of hardship. You've got to harden the metal.
My family's support and the negative environment of the day toward blacks in South Carolina became the forces that led me out of the South - first to New York, then to Philadelphia, where I found opportunity in the form of a PAL gym and my trainer, Yank Durham.
I really believe musical form will go on. There's got to be a way of making musical form in cinema live again.
Let's face it: professing a deep interest in movies, the absolutely dominant global art form of the last century, is at this point like professing an interest in air. Passion is nice. Erudition is admirable. But it's like that moment when good manners cross over into meaningless etiquette.
Hawaii is the best form of comfort for me. When I die, I want to be cremated, and I want half my ashes spread in the Pacific around the island, the rest on the property.
Trance is a very emotional and uplifting form of dance music. It appeals to many people in this way having such a strong connection with emotions. It makes people happy and ready to party.
I present myself to you in a form suitable to the relationship I wish to achieve with you.
We Protestants automatically assume that the Pharisees are the Catholics. They are the self-righteous people who have made Christianity a form of legalistic religion, thereby destroying the free grace of the Gospel. We Protestants are the tax collectors, knowing that we are sinners and that our lives depend upon God's free grace.
Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.
Imitation is the highest form of flattery, but clones kind of get it wrong because we are promoting individuality and being proud of being yourself.
Movies are like an expensive form of therapy for me.
Rewards and punishments are the lowest form of education.
So long as the human spirit thrives on this planet, music in some living form will accompany and sustain it and give it expressive meaning.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
