Teaching is an art and a profession requiring years of training.
When I came into the acting profession, it was quite hierarchical. You didn't sit at the same table as the leading actor. Sir Laurence Olivier, Sir John Gielgud... these were very, very intimidating and powerful people.
I used to go over to Gene Kelly's house and play volleyball, and Paul Newman and Marlon Brando were always there. You kind of took it for granted because I was 20, 21, 22, and they were a bit older - well, Gene certainly was. But it was just part of daily living. They were in the same profession, and you didn't think that much about it.
As a comedian, I found this thing, this profession, that suits my mind and life force. To drop it to do something else? I just don't get that.
Study after study confirms that even when you control for variables like profession, education, hours worked, age, marital status, and children, men still are compensated substantially more - even in professions, like nursing, dominated by women. No wonder there's a gender gap.
Dee Dee Myers
The profession of being a creative thinker is not so obvious.
David M. Kelley
Politics is perhaps the only profession for which no preparation is thought necessary.
Robert Louis Stevenson
The best augury of a man's success in his profession is that he thinks it the finest in the world.
Writing is the only profession where no one considers you ridiculous if you earn no money.
Christ: I dislike him very much. Still, I can stand him. What I cannot stand is the wretched band of people whose profession is to hoodwink us about him.
People of genius do not excel in any profession because they work in it, they work in it because they excel.
I wasn't funny as a kid. I remember enjoying comedians, but I never understood it was a job choice or a profession.
I study the universe. It's the second oldest profession. People have been looking up for a long time.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Law is not a profession at all, but rather a business service station and repair shop.
Adlai E. Stevenson
I always treated writing as a profession, never as a hobby. If you don't believe in yourself, no one else will.
Laurell K. Hamilton
A man is a better citizen of the United States for being also a loyal citizen of his state and of his city; for being loyal to his family and to his profession or trade; for being loyal to his college or his lodge.
Louis D. Brandeis
We have indeed at the moment little cause for pride: as a profession we have made a mess of things.
Friedrich August von Hayek
I'll be damned if I am not getting tired of this. It seems to be the profession of a President simply to hear other people talk.
William Howard Taft
In elementary and high school, I never considered acting as a profession.
Money isn't a major motivating force in my life. Nor is my profession. There are other things that I care more about than being an actor.
Well, teachers have been profoundly demoralized in recent years and are often treated with contempt by politicians. There's a great deal of reckless rhetoric in Washington about the mediocrity of the teaching profession - and I don't find that to be true at all.
At some point in time, you definitely have to go drama. Not to say that you're going drama just because everybody else does it. You do it to challenge yourself. You do it because, naturally, in the profession of acting, you want to show growth. You want to say that you take the craft seriously.
I don't think any actor wants their children to follow them into the profession.
Helena Bonham Carter
If I didn't work in television or film, if I didn't have the right look, I never took it personally. Because there was always the theatre. I'm not a nihilist, I'm an optimist. And that has served me well in this profession.
I got into acting because my teachers kept nudging me into it. The power a teacher has to influence someone is so great. I can't think of a profession I have more respect for.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
