Nothing is so discouraging to an actor than to have to work for long hours upon hours in brightly lighted interior sets.
A just and reasonable modesty does not only recommend eloquence, but sets off every great talent which a man can be possessed of.
Heredity is what sets the parents of a teenager wondering about each other.
Laurence J. Peter
My sun sets to rise again.
It is easy for Christians to have the false impression that once we have established a relationship with Christ, which we believe sets us right with God, the problems of life will somehow scoot away or they will slowly be removed from our lives.
Charles R. Swindoll
It is odd but agitation or contest of any kind gives a rebound to my spirits and sets me up for a time.
Hate controls everything it touches, but love sets everything it touches free.
Bryant H. McGill
For imagination sets the goal picture which our automatic mechanism works on. We act, or fail to act, not because of will, as is so commonly believed, but because of imagination.
Anyone who sets foot into the 'Watchmen' universe and isn't just a little nervous should be given a few days of electroshock therapy. I've always considered 'Watchmen' to be one of the best graphic novels ever written, and when it came out back in 1986 I was as blown away as everyone else. Just masterful.
J. Michael Straczynski
The wisest rule in investment is: when others are selling, buy. When others are buying, sell. Usually, of course, we do the opposite. When everyone else is buying, we assume they know something we don't, so we buy. Then people start selling, panic sets in, and we sell too.
Fondue sets, martini shakers and juicing machines: three things the world could live completely without.
When I fly in a helicopter, I insist there be two sets of controls, one for me in case something happens to the pilot. I'm no expert, but I know enough to at least get the thing on the ground. Nothing scares me like the thought of not being in control.
I like stand-up. But I'd also like a family and house and a yard. I want to work with a lot of people, have colleagues; and on good film sets, there's people there that work with the same people for years and years. I love that collaborative spirit in that medium. Comedy is a lot more solitary.
I went to a lovely school, and I got an incredible education. And I actually think that my education is what really sets me apart, 'cause I'm very smart.
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.
I never shot on sets, but if I was traveling somewhere or on location, I would always have my camera, and I'd always be - it's that kind of fly on the wall approach to photography, though. I don't engage the subject. I like to sneak around, skulk about in the dark.
Secrecy sets barriers between men, but at the same time offers the seductive temptation to break through the barriers by gossip or confession.
The kitchen is tough. It's one of the last bastions in civilized culture that sets out to crush the spirit.
As the sun sets, we've all had those nights where you question your choices and where your life is going.
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.
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.
Running fills the cup that has to pour out for others. Running feeds the soul that has a responsibility to nourish. Running sets the anchor that limits the drift of the day. Running clears the mind that has a myriad of challenges to solve. Running tends to the self so that selfishness can subside.
It's a simple fact: no individual can be good at everything. Everyone needs people around them who have complimentary sets of skills.
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.
C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
