An exit is only a success if you set an exit as your primary goal. My primary goal was to build a globally influential tool, to build something from the ground up that could literally change how we communicated in business and individually.
When I was younger, I used humour as a tool to avoid getting too serious with people - if there was deep emotional stuff going on, then I would crack a joke to defuse the situation.
The story is a machine for empathy. In contrast to logic or reason, a story is about emotion that gets staged over a sequence of dramatic moments, so you empathize with the characters without really thinking about it too much. It is a really powerful tool for imagining yourself in other people's situations.
The Internet is the most liberating tool for humanity ever invented, and also the best for surveillance. It's not one or the other. It's both.
John Perry Barlow
We were a very funny family. Humour was the tool with which my brother and I tried to get attention. We were always trying to be the funniest.
Guantanamo is a chief recruiting tool for al-Qaida. It has put a wedge between the United States and at least some of its allies.
Film is built for kinetic movement and crash and burn. It's a great tool for spectacles. But if it's not rooted to something a little higher, you're just kicking your butt around the corner. You can only take so much of that. You have to have some sort of foundation to explode from.
My manager came up with the idea of taking a Pro Tool rig out on the road to record every night and I thought it was a great idea. I felt like it would be good to record over a certain period of time and then take the best performances of that collection of recordings. It appealed to me that it wasn't going to be from just one location.
The Internet has become a tool to pick on people and ruin someone's life. I don't think parents realize what's going on.
The mistake people keep making is that if they find a wonderful new tool, like email, they have to give up all others. They don't. You have simply added another very useful means to your communications repertoire.
In an information society, education is no mere amenity; it is the prime tool for growing people and profits.
The Internet is both great and terrible. As a source of information, a tool for delivering music and art, it's great. But spamming ads and piracy of music is terrible. It's stealing.
I don't get tripped up in technology. I use technology as a tool. 'Oldboy' we shot Two Pro 35mm. For 'Da Blood of Jesus,' we shot digitally. We shot the new Sony F55. It's a 4K camera.
Stopping crime before it occurs is the most effective crime fighting tool of all.
The body is an actor's tool, like the face, malleable. I never thought that being naked was immoral or outrageous.
All over the world when you test men and women for facial cue recognition, women test... better. It's a negotiation tool.
Voice acting is very different from live-action. You only have one tool to convey emotion. You can't sell a line with a look. It's all about your vocal instrument.
I think that reality TV is so bad. It is a tool by the media to not make people think.
Money is the great tool through whose means labor and skill become universally co-operative.
Songwriting helps me sort out my personal problems. With acting, you're just a tool for someone's ideas.
I'm my own biggest marketing tool. I know the history of the business and I might as well capitalize on it.
When I'm out and about, I'll text or email myself from my phone. A smart phone is a great tool for a writer.
I think a lot of people overlook the importance of the menu as a marketing tool and a way of communicating to the customer what the ambition of their restaurant is. Not only the typeface and the design, but what is it printed on? Is it cheap-looking? Is it the right kind of paper for that restaurant?
Magic is the oldest part of the show business profession. It can now be used as a forward-thinking tool to build a child's confidence. It has been an amazing part in many entertainers' lives, including Steve Martin and the late Johnny Carson.
There's no bigger gaming franchise on the console than 'Call of Duty', and we can't wait to see what the community can create with this new tool.
C. S. Lewis
Leonardo da Vinci
