It is no secret that I have read 'The Da Vinci Code' several times. I genuinely believe that 'The Da Vinci Code' and 'Angels And Demons' are, by far, Brown's best works.
Some people say that practice makes perfect but I just feel that the repetition works against me and I start thinking too far ahead during a show.
I'm not angry, I'm not an angry person, but I do sometimes like playing with the perception of anger, as in pretending that I'm more angry than I actually am, and sometimes it works quite well.
Some say I'm an overnight success. Well, that was a very long night that lasted about 10 years. But while I do, of course, now feel the pressure having had books that have been very successful, I just know I have to concentrate on writing for myself. I can't worry about genres or markets or what might be commercial or not. That never works.
Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind is written large in his works.
It is the artist who realizes that there is a supreme force above him and works gladly away as a small apprentice under God's heaven.
Prayer is the medium of miracles; in whatever way works for you, pray right now.
Remember this: your body is your slave; it works for you.
Archimedes was my ideal. I admired the works of artists, but to my mind, they were only shadows and semblances. The inventor, I thought, gives to the world creations which are palpable, which live and work.
Logic works, metaphysics contemplates.
Laziness works. And the simple way to incorporate its health benefits into your life is simply to take a nap.
A man at work, making something which he feels will exist because he is working at it and wills it, is exercising the energies of his mind and soul as well as of his body. Memory and imagination help him as he works.
A film is sort of binary - it either works or it doesn't work. It has nothing to do with how good a job you do. If you bring it up to an adequate level where the audience goes with the movie, then it works, that is all.
Ignorant free speech often works against the speaker. That is one of several reasons why it must be given rein instead of suppressed.
The aim of all commentary on art now should be to make works of art - and, by analogy, our own experience - more, rather than less, real to us. The function of criticism should be to show how it is what it is, even that it is what it is, rather than to show what it means.
My faith foundation works to bring about a greater respect and understanding between different faiths. We basically work with six popular religions in the world which are the three Abrahamic religions, Hinduism and Buddhism and Sikhism.
Architecture has always been a very idealistic profession. It's about making the world a better place, and it works over the generations because people go on vacation and they look for it.
Rage only works if it is justified. That's the trick with rage. You gotta have a reason to be mad.
If you want to accomplish something in the world, idealism is not enough - you need to choose a method that works to achieve the goal.
When you play a videogame, you could be a completely different person than you are in the real world, certain aspects of the way your brain works can be leveraged for something you could never do in the real world.
In science, read by preference the newest works. In literature, read the oldest. The classics are always modern.
It works better if your lead character is complex and interesting and not perfect.
That's not how national security works... I don't care what the Supreme Court said 30 years ago or what some judge said 15 minutes ago. This is America, and our government is collecting way too damn much data on we the private citizens!
I have very little experience with dating websites. My feeling toward dating websites is what most people's is: If it works, great. If you're serious and legitimate about it and know what you're looking for, then from what I hear, it's definitely effective.
The whole drive of western culture, the part of it which is serious, is towards an extreme objectification. It's carried to the point where the human subject is treated almost as if it's dirt in the works of a watch.
I have never been sorry to see my sets being struck, provided they are well photographed. They're not works of art but part of making a film.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci

I am an idealist. I don't know where I'm going but I'm on my way.
