Sunlight fell upon the wall; the wall received a borrowed splendor. Why set your heart on a piece of earth, O simple one? Seek out the source which shines forever.
With 'Black Rain,' I spent a lot of time with homicide detectives, and I spent a lot of time with different brokers on 'Wall Street.' It helps get the rhythm of the piece and the tone, and how overplayed or underplayed it might be. That's also the magic of movies: You get to hang out and live these different lives.
Did you ever notice that the first piece of luggage on the carousel never belongs to anyone?
A piece of wall can be visually disintegrated from the whole into a separate triangle by plunging a diagonal of light from edge to edge on the wall; that is, side to floor, for instance.
What is the appropriate behavior for a man or a woman in the midst of this world, where each person is clinging to his piece of debris? What's the proper salutation between people as they pass each other in this flood?
I feel as if I were a piece in a game of chess, when my opponent says of it: That piece cannot be moved.
Every decently-made object, from a house to a lamp post to a bridge, spoon or egg cup, is not just a piece of 'stuff' but a physical embodiment of human energy, testimony to the magical ability of our species to take raw materials and turn them into things of use, value and beauty.
You don't have to eat a whole cheeseburger, just take a piece of the cheeseburger.
A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece.
Actors are agents of change. A film, a piece of theater, a piece of music, or a book can make a difference. It can change the world.
When you look at the stars and the galaxy, you feel that you are not just from any particular piece of land, but from the solar system.
I guess we all like to be recognized not for one piece of fireworks, but for the ledger of our daily work.
I'm probably wouldn't do anything differently if I had to do it again. Every little thing that happens to you, good and bad, becomes a little piece of the puzzle of who you become. Every successful person you read about - Warren Buffett, Bill Gates - they all say pretty much the same thing. 'Do what you love.' I know I did.
People became more interested in my love life than in me, and that has a certain effect. You start to feel very empty and worth nothing, you start to become a piece in a board game you never wanted to play.
There is a saying that every nice piece of work needs the right person in the right place at the right time.
I stole a piece of the chess set on the first film. I took a piece of the treasure out of Bellatrix's vault on this film. And I've taken my wand and I've got my cloak.
I think it's brought the world a lot closer together, and will continue to do that. There are downsides to everything; there are unintended consequences to everything.

Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish.

Your body is like a piece of dynamite. You can tap it with a pencil all day, but you'll never make it explode. You hit it once with a hammer: Bang! Get serious. Do 40 hard minutes, not an hour and half of nonsense. It's so much more rewarding.
When you are having fun and creating something you love, it shows in the product. So when a woman is sifting through a rack of clothes, somehow that piece of clothing that you had so much fun designing speaks to her; she responds to it and buys it. I believe you can actually transfer that energy to material things as you're creating them.
What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god.
I put a piece of paper under my pillow, and when I could not sleep I wrote in the dark.
Henry David Thoreau
For me, the cinema is not a slice of life, but a piece of cake.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
