Obviously, I've been very lucky in general in my career, but I feel that I've been very lucky in terms of having directors come along at the right times who have taken me to the next level of where I needed to be.
I'm more likely to lose my temper on a film set than almost anywhere. Often the level of idiocy is so exalted that it's impossible to comprehend.
Women have a level of outward compassion that a lot of men don't necessarily have. Guys feel as deeply as women, but they don't share it as much.
Any nominations a movie gets helps to raise the level of curiosity in the public, so in that sense awards and nominations are important.
I came to magic absolutely hating magic on a very, very deep level.
I grew up as a Christian. I suppose at some level I wanted to believe someone was watching over me.
I like movies where you feel like you're going into another world, and no matter how many times you watch it, you're gonna see something new in that world. That level of detail really inspires me.
Especially, I think, living in any fantasy or science fiction world means really understanding what you're seeing and reading really densely on a level that a lot of people don't bother to read.
Math and music are intimately related. Not necessarily on a conscious level, but sure.
President Obama's version of America is a divided one - pitting us against each other based on our income level, gender, and social status. His policies have failed! We are not better off than we were 4 years ago, and no rhetoric, bumper sticker, or campaign ad can change that.
I'm a much nicer person since my wife died. I found out what pain is, so on that level I'm much nicer.
Manufacturing capacity is not a rigid level against which one bounces. When you are dealing with a world economy, with a flexibility to employ production facilities other than one's own, then the concept of capacity is vaguer.
I suggest that going to Mars means permanence on the planet - a mission by which we are building up a confidence level to become a two-planet species.
I mean there's certainly a lot of progressive rock and metal that exists at the underground level, which has its own vitality, as it should. But it seems to have lost its ability to really charge up the hill.
I feel humiliated that I live in a country that demands more already. Why do we cling to the notion that not only must we maintain the current level of consumption, but that it must continue to grow by an exponential factor of 2 to 7 percent every year?
I did my English A level in England, and we studied Shakespeare. I had great, great high school teachers, and we parsed the text within an inch of its life.
I think we plan everything, somehow, on another level.
The World, thinking itself affronted by superior merit, takes delight to bring it down to its own level.
I took a Groundlings class in my 20s, and I was terrible. They didn't even pass me to the next level.
Humans have existed only for the last 0.001 percent of cosmic time. All of which says that - unless the Homo sapiens brain is the one-and-only instance of cogitating machinery - nearly all the intelligence that's out there is beyond our level. And that intelligence is more than just a little bit beyond.
On a practical level, poetry isn't something anybody has really made a great living at. I might sell some books and, once in a while, someone might pay to hear me read.
My whole mood or sense can change by virtue of the music that I'm listening to. It really does affect me on a visceral and emotional level.
My level of intervention in the press, trying to control stories, is zero. Subzero.
The other thing I knew I had was a high level of competitiveness.
Spending hours stressed out in front of the TV isn't the same as volunteering or donating. Feeling a high level of personal distress makes people feel agitated and emotionally drained, to the point that they lack the energy or detachment to help - or the energy to manage themselves.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy

Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.
