Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly until you learn to do it well.
If a job is worth doing, it's worth doing poorly first.
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.
There are few performers who would have had the audacity to even bring up the fact that they had been poorly reviewed.
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.
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.
As the years passed in my village, I witnessed poorly educated young men leaving to seek the greater comforts and liberations of big cities. I would see them on my visits to Delhi.
I would rather read a poorly structured story that has fresh ideas than a tightly structured one with cliches.
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.
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.

There are people who have tremendously important things to say, but they say it so poorly that nobody would ever want to read it.
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.
Cable boxes are, almost without exception, awful. They're under-powered computers running very badly designed software. Their channel guides are slow, poorly laid out, and usually riddled with ads.

Now, as Global Ambassador for Starlight Children's Foundation, which brightens the lives of poorly children, I visit hospitals and tell stories to the young patients. Sometimes I read. Sometimes I draw.
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.
What offends me more than something sexist is something poorly written or unfunny or cliched.
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.'
