When a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully.
If you ever go to a music session, you'll notice that the musicians can sit down and start playing right away, and everyone knows what to do. Of course they're reading it, but the conductor can tweak little things, and you can take that back to directing motion pictures.
He knows not his own strength that hath not met adversity.
A lot of good arguments are spoiled by some fool who knows what he is talking about.
Miguel de Unamuno
Whoever knows it also knows that in love there is no More and no Less; but that he who loves can only love with the whole heart, and with the whole soul; with all his strength and with all his will.
The imagination is the spur of delights... all depends upon it, it is the mainspring of everything; now, is it not by means of the imagination one knows joy? Is it not of the imagination that the sharpest pleasures arise?
Marquis de Sade
If I don't practice one day, I know it; two days, the critics know it; three days, the public knows it.
