Building a set is like building a place, but it's a temporary place, because sets usually get torn down. Kind of unfortunate.
The kitchen is tough. It's one of the last bastions in civilized culture that sets out to crush the spirit.
I've always wanted to be a DJ so I could play the music I love for other people. That feeling hasn't changed, but my sets are always evolving. In terms of tailoring to a specific crowd, certainly I do play differently depending on the situation. It's a different feel, for example, in a small club versus a festival.
I'm always amazed at the way some actors' behaviour is truly disgusting. That's one thing that will never happen on one of my sets if I ever direct.
If I saw 'Virgin Suicides' or 'Eternal Sunshine,' I'm so proud to be in those movies. They are such great movies. I felt so free on those sets.
It's incredible how nature sets females up to take care of people, and yet it is tricky for them to take care of themselves.
Charity separates the rich from the poor; aid raises the needy and sets him on the same level with the rich.
My wife and I, unlike many intellectuals, spent five years working on assembly lines. We came to fully understand the criticisms of the industrial age, in which you are an appendage of a machine that sets the pace.
Everything that rises sets, and everything that grows, grows old.
I've been on sets where things weren't relaxed because someone was creating tension for no reason.
I grew up in the world of bad television, on my dad's sets and then as a young schmuck on dating shows and so on.
Directing is more what I would like to get into eventually. Frankly, I feel like it would be a waste if I didn't because I've spent so much time on film sets, and I know how they work, and I love them, and I love leading them. I would like to do that as a director definitely.
Limitations are something that I latch onto - like working in genre, or if you're writing TV, there are act breaks, there's a length of time it's supposed to be. The restrictions of budget and sets can be really useful. When you can have everything, it's very hard to make things feel real and lived in.
It's a simple fact: no individual can be good at everything. Everyone needs people around them who have complimentary sets of skills.
Everybody sets out to do something, and everybody does something, but no one does what he sets out to do.
George A. Moore
The moment a man sets his thoughts down on paper, however secretly, he is in a sense writing for publication.
The repose of sleep refreshes only the body. It rarely sets the soul at rest. The repose of the night does not belong to us. It is not the possession of our being. Sleep opens within us an inn for phantoms. In the morning we must sweep out the shadows.
When we leave the play saying how spectacular the sets or costumes were, or how interesting the ideas, it means we had a bad time.
One might as well try to ride two horses moving in different directions, as to try to maintain in equal force two opposing or contradictory sets of desires.
That's what sets apart one actor from another, and that you can't teach. You can't give someone that. When you're working, putting a character together, or in a scene, that's where things will happen that you have to have the intuition to notice them, and to register them.
I did an internship at the Ardent theatre company in Philly after dropping out of college. I was earning $165 a week building sets and cleaning the toilets. Cleaning toilets is a good way of getting in touch with your creativity. That's when you find out if you got anything going on in your head.
The first thing you have to do is accept that decay sets in and there's nothing you can do about it.
I'm a very lucky man in this chapter of my professional life, 'cause I get to do jobs with wildly different skill sets.
Neil Patrick Harris
As goofy as it sounds, I try to sing in the morning. It's hard both to sing and to maintain a grouchy mood, and it sets a happy tone for everyone - particularly in my case, because I'm tone deaf, and my audience finds my singing a source of great hilarity.
Our law is a Jordanian law that we inherited, which applies to both the West Bank and Gaza, and sets the death penalty for those who sell land to Israelis.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
