I can't believe people got so upset at the sight of a single breast! America is so parochial, I may just have to move to Europe where people are more mature about things like that!
View quotes by Janet Jackson

The dust of exploded beliefs may make a fine sunset.

On his own history with mathematics, and connection with John Nash: 'I had a bit of a hiccup in the third year of high school. The school I was at hired a non-English speaking Hungarian who was a professional of some great standing in Eastern Europe. But he hadn't learned the English language yet. He probably is a great asset to the teaching staff now, but we were his first class. That was when mathematics and I parted ways.

'There's a lot of mathematics in music. It's all in groups of eight, mate, y'know. The one thing that I may have in common with John is that the subject matter I do know, the driving part of my life, my work life, there's a point where structure and scaffolding is left behind and intuition takes over. That's the difference between John and the next 100 mathematicians. He's fully prepared to leave the scaffolding behind and get into the ether of the equation and find the answer quicker. The bane of his existence, however, is finding the proof.'

I don't know. People always think that there has got to be a dark side to everyone, a closet with skeletons, demons under the bed. People think all kinds of things about one another. They feel compelled to make up fears and false assumptions about their closest friends. Truth is, I'll never know all there is to know about you just as you will never know all there is to know about me. Humans are by nature too complicated to be understood fully. So, we can choose either to approach our fellow human beings with suspicion or to approach them with an open mind, a dash of optimism and a great deal of candour.

On husband Antonio: "Angelina Jolie may get him in bed for eight hours on a movie set, but I get him in bed everyday."
View quotes by Melanie Griffith

With my name in cement, I feel actualised. - On cementing his hand prints on Sunset Boulevard

I don't believe in the so-called Latino explosion when it comes to movies. Jennifer Lopez doesn't have an accent. She grew up in New York speaking English not Spanish. Her success is very important because she represents a different culture, but it doesn't help me. I grew up in Mexico, not the US, and the fact is that there just aren't any parts for Latin actresses. I have to persuade people that my accent won't be a problem, but an asset.
View quotes by Salma Hayek

Just remember, you can do anything you set your mind to, but it takes action, perseverance, and facing your fears.
View quotes by Gillian Anderson

She's safe just like I promised. She's all set to marry Norrington just like she promised, and you get to die for her just like you promised... So we're all men of our word really... except Elizabeth who is, in fact a woman. - Pirates of the Caribbean
View quotes by Johnny Depp

When the sun sets, shadows, that showed at noon But small, appear most long and terrible. (Oedipus)
View quotes by Nathaniel Lee

On the set of movie "Enemy At The Gates": "There was dirt under your nails and in your ears and up yer bum - we got into it."
View quotes by Rachel Weisz

On corsets: "I said, 'You have got to be kidding. I am an ape and yet I am still expected to squeeze myself into one of those damn things.'"
View quotes by Helena Bonham Carter

I draw on my memories but blended with a lot of fantasy...but let's set the record straight on something! The Summer of '69 has nothing to do with the actual year 1969. It's about making love (69 - get it?) and looking back at the good old times.

Bring thou this fiend of Scotland and myself; Within my sword's length set him; if he 'scape, Heaven forgive him too!
View quotes by William Shakespeare

First witch: When shall we three meet again,
Second witch: In thunder, lightning, or in rain?
When the hurly-burly's done,
When the battle's lost and won.
Third witch: That will be ere the set of sun.
First witch: Where the place?
Second witch: Upon the heath.
Third witch: There to meet with Macbeth.
First witch: I come, Greymalkin!
Second witch: Paddock calls.
Third witch: Anon!
All: Fair is foul, and foul is fair:
Hover through the fog and filthy air.
(Macbeth, Act 1, Scene 1)
View quotes by William Shakespeare

Some people regard discipline as a chore. For me, it is a kind of order that sets me free to fly.
View quotes by Julie Andrews

Several tons of dynamite are set off in this picture - none of it under the right people
View quotes by James Agee

"Life has a way of setting things in order and leaving them be. Very tidy, is life."
View quotes by Jean Anouilh

If you have anything really valuable to contribute to the world it will come through the expression of your own personality, that single spark of divinity that sets you off and makes you different from every other living creature.
View quotes by Bruce Barton

I put for the general inclination of all mankind, a perpetual and restless desire of power after power, that ceaseth only in death. (Leviathan)
View quotes by Thomas Hobbes

Of all the stages in a woman's life, none is so dangerous as the period between her acknowledgement of a passion for a man, and the day set apart for her nuptials.
View quotes by Hugh Kelly

The great questions of the day will not be settled by means of speeches and majority decisions... but by iron and blood.
View quotes by Otto Von Bismarck

The United Nations was not set up to be a reformatory. It was assumed that you would be good before you got in and not that being in would make you good.
View quotes by John Foster Dulles

That's one of the best sets I've seen him play (Tomas Zib) - although I should preface that by saying I haven't seen him play before
View quotes by John McEnroe

It's 20 - 19 in the final set, and I think he might be showing some signs of tiredness
View quotes by Frew McMillan

'I'm a perfectionist. I can't help it, I get really upset with myself if I fail in the least.'
View quotes by Justin Timberlake

The world cannot afford the loss of the talents of half its people if we are to solve the many problems that beset us.
View quotes by Sussman Yalow

What kind of society isn't structured on greed? The problem of social organization is how to set up an arrangement under which greed will do the least harm; capitalism is that kind of a system.
View quotes by Milton Friedman

Sleep is when all the unsorted stuff comes flying out as from a dustbin upset in a high wind.
View quotes by William Golding

We have the highest authority for believing that the meek shall inherit the earth; though I have never found any particular corroboration of this aphorism in the records of Somerset House.
View quotes by F E Smith (first Earl Of Birkenhead)
