The picture has made its million back in four months; I have been overwhelmed by letters, hundreds of them, literally, begging me in my next production not to swing over the shallow trash of mother love, father love, sister love, brother love.
Erich von Stroheim
People see fashion as superficial and shallow, but it's actually not. As an industry, it can really change how things happen and change trade for countries that really need it.
It's a good thing Winston Churchill was around before the shallow age of television. He might never have become one of the greatest leaders of all time.
A text conversation is a short exchange of often grossly truncated language that corresponds to a thought made all the more shallow by the process.

Deep down, I happen to be very shallow.
I suddenly think the job of acting is a difficult one. It's not as flip, irrelevant and shallow a calling as I thought it was in the Eighties.

It's become something of a ritual - every year, Google publishes its year-end summary of what the world wants, and every year I complain about how shallow it is, given what Google really knows about what the world is up to.
We are shallow because our media are so horribly shallow. Every morning, I peruse the papers, and there is so little to read in them. It is the same with radio - all that noise, that artifice.
F. Sionil Jose
It's all very well setting up your own brand of face cream or exercise wear - but Christ, it's so shallow.
Workaholics typically have a lot of achievement with very little appreciation of what they have, whether it's cars or friendships or otherwise. That is a shallow victory.

One of the hardest things for me to do is watch myself.
