Give us the luxuries of life, and we will dispense with its necessaries.
John Lothrop Motley
Schools used to fund-raise for luxuries, like a trip to the water slides. Now, we fund-raise for things we have to have.
My grandmother lives with my mother in a gorgeous house in the San Fernando Valley. I am afforded these luxuries, and I'm very young.
Our generation in the west was lucky: we had readymade gateways. We had books, paper, teachers, schools and libraries. But many in the world lack these luxuries. How do you practice without such tryout venues?
The biggest difference for me is momentum. On a smaller film you get to shoot sometimes four or five scenes a day and you've got to do the tight schedule. I think I really feel the luxuries of a big budget film.
My background wasn't one blessed with all the luxuries in life. Nothing is forever and I realize that.
Even though I am fortunate to have certain luxuries, sometimes, I am even amazed by what people with money have and do. I want to remind people that just because you might be rich and famous, it doesn't mean you have to take yourself too seriously.
My stroller of choice is the Graco Classic. It's the '70s Buick of strollers, bulky with a complete absence of style. There are no good lines on the Graco. Yes, it has cup holders, like any self-respecting car or stroller does these days, but the luxuries stop there.
One of the big luxuries of being in Antwerp is that I can easily walk in the city. In Paris and New York, I am more recognized.
Dries van Noten
On a low-budget film, you don't have all the luxuries.
I don't need a trailer; I don't need to have the luxuries of what is Hollywood, which is why I'm probably not so desperate to get there.
The city has to do what any citizen or family does, when you have a dream. You tighten your belt. You sacrifice some luxuries. Above all, you don't waste a dime.
Oh my God, the luxuries we have in America. We just don't even realize because you live in it long enough and you come to expect it, but when you get to take a step outside of it you really, really get to recognize how blessed we are and how much we have.
