It was easier to do Shakespeare than a lot of modern movie scripts that are so poorly written.
I don't think focus is in itself ever a bad thing. But focus of the wrong kind, or managed poorly, can be.
I play piano and drums very poorly and French horn and tuba all equally as bad.
I'm a slave to my dogs and go out with them almost every day. They are poorly behaved if they don't run. They really act up.
Human intelligence is a marvelous, subtle, and poorly understood phenomenon. There is no danger of duplicating it anytime soon.
Woodstock was a business. A very poorly run business.
There are few performers who would have had the audacity to even bring up the fact that they had been poorly reviewed.
If younger people see older people who haven't planned ahead and have to rely on charity, the young will be more likely to provide for the future. Today when someone plans poorly, the only consequence people see is a demand for more government.
There's so many things that can go wrong in the execution of a project like a television show or a movie, so many little elements, any number of things, all the way to marketing - like they could market it poorly and nobody finds it and down it goes.
There was a time when a musician was forced to act in a video. Seeing a singer step too far outside of his comfort zone to pour all of his high-school-drama angst into a poorly scripted scenario was a sight to behold.
For the average player, most three-putts happen because of a poorly judged first putt from long range.
Could I have worked under a system where there were Draconian controls on my creativity, meaning budget, time, script choices, etc.? Definitely not. I would have fared poorly under the old studio system that guys like Howard Hawks did so well in. I cannot.
Usually bands with violins - it's this little, poorly amplified looking kind of futile on stage, and that's not the way that my music is put together.
There are people who have tremendously important things to say, but they say it so poorly that nobody would ever want to read it.
Sports movies are a genre that I really respond to, but they can be done really poorly and really fall short. The good ones are just so good and inspiring and make you feel good.
The most fascinating powers don't mean a thing if the guy's poorly motivated or dull, and the most generic powers won't hurt a well-motivated character. Personality and motivation are what make Magneto, Magneto and not Cosmic Boy. The powers work for him, but it's his motivation that makes him the character he is.
I would rather read a poorly structured story that has fresh ideas than a tightly structured one with cliches.
I think feature films sell on the idea, and I think TV works based almost entirely on execution. I don't think anybody is going, 'Wow, that show is executed poorly, but the idea is so cool I just have to keep watching.'
IRS is very poorly equipped to make a distinction between what is a religion and what is not.
When I look back at it, I'm mostly amazed at how poorly it was shot. David Kelley is a great writer, and I thought the scripts were great, but it just looks so cheap.
I just can't stomach playing poorly. More than anything, I hate not getting the most out of my game.
When I putt well, I do very well. When I putt poorly, I struggle to be in the game.
Editors and their authors seldom form deep friendships for the same reason that psychiatrists and their patients keep their distance: The relationship requires candor that mixes poorly with intimacy.
I myself don't have Netflix. And recently, I was staying at a friend's place who did, and I was feeling rather poorly one morning, and I sat down and watched the entire series of 'The Killing,' the American version of 'The Killing' in one day. I just got hooked. I thought, 'Wow, I've never done this before.'
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
