People think that what I see diving must drive what I put into films, but that isn't really the case. When I am making a Hollywood production, I am telling a different kind of story. Of course, if I see something interesting that works, we will look at it, but they are different things.
All I try to do is create an atmosphere that seems comfortable enough, that it removes tension and everyone feels free. If they feel free then behaviour happens, small moments happen and that's what ultimately works the best for me.
You'd never look at a Rembrandt and say, 'That's just wood and canvas and paint - how much?!' It's all about how many people want it. It works on a pair of jeans as well - they're just material and stitching, and as soon as you walk out of the shop, they're worth nothing.
I think that internal conflict works very well, because, after all, all the best drama is fuelled by conflict.
Richard C. Armitage
If we ever find out how the brain works, with all its complexity, then we will be able to build a machine that has consciousness. And if that happens, that is a road to planetary disaster because everything we've thought about ourselves, since the Bronze Age, the Bible, all of that will be gone.
E. L. Doctorow
I think the kick to doing comedy is just to get in a film with really funny people and let them do their jobs. I find that in most comedies, I'm not the funny one, which works out great.
I don't ever go on the Internet. I don't even know how it works.
You want to put out a TV show? If you have the money to do it on your own, by yourself, and you have a TV network, you can do it by yourself. But the nature of the beast is, art needs finance. That's how this industry works. So until the Internet becomes our source of entertainment - and watch it, I believe it will - this is how things go.
Skyping with your spouse works well enough, but apparently it is hard to get the kids to hang out on Skype for long.
Learning ballroom dancing is great for your brain. But it only works for three to six months. After that, you've got all the benefit you can get, and so you have to move on to yoga, and then Tai Chi, and then bridge, always keeping on the steep part of the learning curve.
You launch a site, and you see what works, and you continue to make it better.
Society has arisen out of the works of peace; the essence of society is peacemaking.
Ludwig von Mises
When you look at a commodities market you need hedgers and speculators. If you don't have one, you don't have a market. That's how it works.
T. Boone Pickens
Surely in a world of email, video conferencing and virtual assistants, isn't being expected to show up at the office extremely anachronistic? Yet to date it seems that where one works does matter. That creativity and innovation do feed off physical interactions between people.
Comedy works best when people recognise themselves.
The Dewey decimal system really works. So that's all I needed to know. Elementary school taught me that.
I like to think about stringing songs together like a string of pearls, or a string of beads, but ultimately it has to be stuff that really works with the band, and gives a spin to the older material.
We believe that government works for the benefit of private life, and not the other way around.
My kids probably stay up too late. My wife goes to bed around 3 A.M., and I follow around 7 A.M., but it works.
I think every fantasy reader secretly believes they know how magic works.
I think a lot of times people design restaurants with flash in mind. I think you should design restaurants with function in mind. Make sure it's functional and works with what you're trying to accomplish. Design can come later.
I believe in capitalism for everybody, not necessarily high finance but capitalism that works for the working men and women of this country who are out there paddling alone in America right now.
The amateur tweets. The pro works.
I don't dress for effect, and I think that it never works out when someone does.
Run with what works: Sell to the people who believe in you and are willing to take the chances and make the experience happen.
Thomas P.M. Barnett
