Quote of the Day
What I am really concerned about is what art is supposed to be - and can become.
Michael Arndt, that guy - you're just supposed to say nice things about other writers, but I worship Michael Arndt.
I know you're not supposed to have TV in your room, but I like watching a little. I need something mindless.
I do not know that any writer has supposed that on this earth man will ultimately be able to live without food.
I have so much residue crap in my hair from years and years of not washing it and not having any sense of personal hygiene whatsoever. Even today, I go into these things where I'm supposed to be this sexy guy or whatever, and I'm literally asking, 'If I get plumes of dandruff on me, can you just brush it off?'
The trouble with the jokes is that once they're written, I know how they're supposed to work, and all I can do is not hit them. I'm more comfortable improvising. If I have just two or three ideas and I know how the character feels, what the character wants, everything in between is like trapeze work.
The past is where its supposed to be.
I categorically resist this idea that films are supposed to be autobiographical and the only stories you tell are about your own life.
I don't know if it's responsible for kids of my age to be so aggressively pursuing monogamous binds, because I don't think we're ready for them. The romanticism within our culture dictates that that's what you're supposed to be looking for.
They're not supposed to show prison films in prison. Especially ones that are about escaping.
There is a rule of Sharia: If the enemy wants to suppress you, you are supposed to put up a strong resistance.
We thought that's the way you were supposed to be if you were in a rock 'n' roll band. Flamboyant.
As might be supposed, my parents were quite poor, but we somehow never seemed to lack anything we needed, and I never saw a trace of discontent or a failure in cheerfulness over their lot in life, as indeed over anything.
Albert J. Nock
Back then, I was doing more of my impression of what a comic is supposed to do.
This young wine may have a lot of tannins now, but in five or 10 years it is going to be spectacular, despite the fact that right now it tastes like crude oil. You know this is how it is supposed to taste at this stage of development.
The thing about all good horror movies is that the fans expect a couple of inside jokes. Maybe I'm supposed to be saying how terrified I was while making it, but it was really fun.
If I'm with a man, is that going to prevent me from achieving my goal? What sacrifices will I have to make in terms of being myself, if I'm with a man? Something that young women find out really quickly is that when you start dating, all of a sudden you're supposed to have a role. You're not allowed to just be yourself.
What is supposed to be the very essence of Judaism - which is the notion that it is by study that you make yourself a holy people - is nowhere present in Hebrew tradition before the end of the first or the beginning of the second century of the Common Era.
Everybody believes in psychiatry; it's supposed to be for our own good. Let psychiatry prove that anybody has an illness, and I'd concede, but there is no physical proof.
I'm supposed to be taking time off. But I'm still writing and I have this Gap advert lined up.
If you give yourself too much time, you kind of over-obsess about the music. It's not supposed to be like that.
Making a film that's supposed to be fun to watch is really hard - that's the weird irony of it.
I like knowing where I am in action sequences if I'm supposed to.
Most performers don't admit this, because it sounds negative and performers are not supposed to be negative, but when I was on the road, I was lonely.

I think my job is to try and be as honest as I can with what is in my mind and how I feel - I think that's what you're supposed to do, if you're a good writer. So I try to do that. I know I do that. I do do that.
Paul Thomas Anderson
Music is supposed to be an escape. It's supposed to be somewhere you go, where you can be yourself, or be whatever you want to be.
Someone who does an act. In a democratic society, you're supposed to be an activist; that is, you participate. It could be a letter written to an editor.
The internet was supposed to homogenize everyone by connecting us all. Instead what it's allowed is silos of interest.
Hawking has violated the unspoken rules of atheism. He isn't supposed to use words like 'create' or even 'made.' They necessitate a Creator and a Maker. Neither are you supposed to let out that the essence of atheism is to believe that nothing created everything, because it's unthinking.
