Books are masters who instruct us without rods or ferules, without words or anger, without bread or money. If you approach them, they are not asleep; if you seek them, they do not hide; if you blunder, they do not scold; if you are ignorant, they do not laugh at you.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The most important service rendered by the press and the magazines is that of educating people to approach printed matter with distrust.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Surviving and thriving as a professional today demands two new approaches to the written word. First, it requires a new approach to orchestrating information, by skillfully choosing what to read and what to ignore. Second, it requires a new approach to integrating information, by reading faster and with greater comprehension.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The minute you try to talk business with him he takes the attitude that he is a gentleman and a scholar, and the moment you try to approach him on the level of his moral integrity he starts to talk business.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The Inside-Out approach to personal and interpersonal effectiveness means to start first with self; even more fundamentally, to start with the most inside part of self -- with your paradigms, your character, and your motives. The inside-out approach says that private victories precede public victories, that making and keeping promises to ourselves recedes making and keeping promises to others. It says it is futile to put personality ahead of character, to try to improve relationships with others before improving ourselves.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Literature transforms and intensifies ordinary language, deviates systematically from everyday speech. If you approach me at a bus stop and murmur Thou still unravished bride of quietness, then I am instantly aware that I am in the presence of the literary.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Martti: Very good, excellent! Let's take a couple a bit closer. But I can't be done without light. Everything is based on light. Even colors are made of light. There are no colors in the dark, only black and white. A lens can bring you close to distant things. It is easier to approach a person that way too, isn't it? You must understand what you're shooting. You have to find the soul of your object.
Jukka: I thought you didn't believe in souls.
Martti: Only in photography. Just as there is a dark side to every soul, every picture craves shade.More [10/16/2005 12:10:00]
I actually don't meet very many men because they are, I guess, afraid to approach me or think that I'm from another planet.More [10/24/2005 12:10:00]
Peter Marwood: Right, now we're going to have to approach this scientifically. First thing we've got to do is get this fire alight, then we split into two fact finding groups. I'll deal with the water and the plumbings, you check the fuel and wood situation.
[Later, Withnail re-enters the cottage holding a short stick]
Peter Marwood: What's that?
Withnail: The fuel and wood situation. There's nothing out there except a hurricane.More [11/18/2005 12:11:00]
Lt. Colonel Hal Moore: Our Father in Heaven, before we go into battle, every soldier among us will approach you each in his own way. Our enemies too, according to their own understanding, will ask for protection and for victory. And so, we bow before your infinite wisdom. We offer our prayers as best we can. I pray you watch over the young Jack Geoghegan. That I lead into battle. You use me as your instrument in this awful hell of war to watch over them. Especially if they're men like this one beside me, deserving of a future in your blessing and goodwill. Amen.
2nd Lieutenant Jack Geoghegan: Amen.
Lt. Colonel Hal Moore: Oh, yes, and one more thing, dear Lord, about our enemies, ignore their heathen prayers and help us blow those little bastards straight to Hell. Amen.More [12/12/2005 12:12:00]
Board President: So, we've covered abortion, church and state, predestination, drug abuse, prostitution -- ah, yes, homosexuality. How do you approach the homosexuality problem, Camille?
Camille: Well, um, I'm not really sure I'd consider it a problem.
Martin: I like what you said over at Tom's, Camille said that it's important to love the sinner but hate the sin, so that you're allowed to feel the desire but not act on that desire.
Camille: Well, in hetero-- in retro-spect, sorry -- I've come to think that there's a lot of room for multiciplicity in God's creation.
Reverend DeBoer: You are aware that that is contrary to doctrine in this matter.
Camille: God... God cannot be so cruel as to decree that people like... like that can never, ever be contented. I mean, one's devotions are not entirely chosen.More [01/09/2006 12:01:00]

But, people are recognizing me more. Sometimes fans just approach me on the street and say how much they love the show. It's great to get that kind of feedback.More [03/23/2006 12:03:00]
I learned in the last few years that it's really unhappy and really unsustainable to try and base your well being on something as arbitrary as record sale and critical acclaim and the interests of the public. All of those things are so fickle. So my approach now to music is I want to make records that I love, and I hope that other people love them, then that's OK.More [04/01/2006 12:04:00]
It's all a learning process for me. This is only the second film that I've starred in and I'm learning every time how to talk to people, how to get my point across without being too strong, but making sense -- all of the things that you learn as an actor coming up in the business. There's different ways to approach different people. I think as a lead in the film you have to be smart in the way you do that.More [04/21/2006 12:04:00]
It had a profound effect on me. To read first the script and then Kazantzakis's novel, uhm, it sort of came at a time when I was questioning my own approach to knowing who I am, what I am, to knowing about my spiritual side.More [05/10/2006 12:05:00]
People are sheepish when they approach me.More [06/09/2006 12:06:00]
I had no idea of humor and self-deprecation those many years ago, so I took a very serious approach on The Transformed Man, whereas I saw the value of alternating emotions and aspects of life in this album.More [06/21/2006 12:06:00]
“I think a lot of the instincts you have doing comedy are really the same for doing drama, in that it's essentially about listening. The way I approach comedy, is you have to commit to everything as if it's a dramatic role, meaning you play it straight.”More [07/11/2006 12:07:00]
I always try to make myself be very approachable and easy to talk to, so hopefully people will feel that they can approach me.More [09/05/2006 12:09:00]
Now, Marty's humor is a bit different and he has a different approach to humor than Jack did, but Jack wanted to be a stand-up comic.More [10/06/2006 12:10:00]
I approach my character with the question: What would an animal think? How would an animal respond? A lot of times, it's quick action and no fear, and sometimes it's irrational fear. You don't always know.More [10/15/2006 12:10:00]
I think it all comes back to being very selfish as an artist. I mean, I really do just write and record what interests me and I do approach the stage shows in much the same way.More [11/08/2006 12:11:00]
I'm still hopeful, that those people will take an open-minded approach to allowing an artist to create and produce... ..and not get in the way if they don't need to.More [11/09/2006 12:11:00]
My relationship with Music Row has always been, from my end, optimistic and hopeful that there is more than one way to approach the writing, recording, and marketing of an album.More [11/09/2006 12:11:00]
My opinion is that music is music. As long as you approach doing a remix with truth, I don't see the dance remixes being any different than an hip-hop remix- it's really a different version of the song.More [11/09/2006 12:11:00]
But the approach to recording this album was kind of an organized, chaotic approach where I wanted to maintain and preserve that wild abandon to creating.More [11/12/2006 12:11:00]
“I am in awe, in admiration of the man who Gaius Julius Caesar was. I don't actually do him as the man himself. He is maybe a distant relative. It's hard to approach the real man because he is such an awesome icon.”More [11/23/2006 12:11:00]
“A sense of freedom is something that, happily, comes with age and life experience. In 'The Second Sex,' Simone de Beauvoir says that as they approach 50, a lot of women are set free from the anxiety and the mortification and the humiliation of intimate relationships with men - the opposite sex. For some reason, you are suddenly free from it. And thank God for that. It's the upside of sticking around this long.”More [12/04/2006 12:12:00]
“With so much uncertainty about the eventual positioning/future of Liz Claiborne's department store partners (former May Department Stores door closures, potential spin-offs of Saks Fifth Avenue and Lord & Taylor, repositioning of Sears), we would not be surprised to see Liz Claiborne management take a cautious approach to 2006 guidance.”More [01/07/2007 12:01:00]
[Spider-Man finally stops the train. Exhausted, he falls unconscious and almost falls off, but for the train passengers, who grab him and pull him to safety inside the carriage]
Train Passenger: He's... just a kid... no older than my son...
[Spider-Man regains consciousness, then finding the passengers seeing him unmasked, sits up abruptly]
Train Passenger: [reassuringly] it's all right...
[Two young boys approach Spider-Man]
Boy with Mask: B: We found something...
[Spider-Man is given his mask]
Boy with Mask: We won't tell nobody - it's good to have you back, Spider-Man...
[Slowly, Spider-Man dons his mask and gets up, but then... ]
Doc Ock: [entering the carriage] He's MINE!
Train Passenger: You want to get to him, you gotta go through me!

Doc Ock: Very well...More [03/18/2007 12:03:00]
Mary Jane Watson: [sees Peter Parker approach her] Oh... you.
Peter Parker: Listen, I'm sorry, but there was a disturbance.
Mary Jane Watson: I don't know you and I can't keep thinking about you. It's too painful.
Peter Parker: I've been reading poetry lately.
Mary Jane Watson: Whatever that means.
Peter Parker: Day by day he gazed upon her, Day by day he sighed with passion, Day by day...
Mary Jane Watson: [Interrupts Parker] Don't start.More [03/18/2007 12:03:00]

Addison: [Xavier is repeatedly whacking a door with a baseball bat with nails on it - it isn't working, everyone's watching]
Addison: Well we've established that the macho bullshit approach isn't opening the door. Any other suggestions?
Xavier: [turns round to Addison] Look who's talking, the only door you know how to open is between ya' legs!
Addison: [lunges towards Xavier in anger] Why don't you shut the hell up all right!
Xavier: [shouting] Why don't you shut the hell up?
Addison: [she lunges towards him and they begin fighting] I'm sick of your bullshit. You'd best bend over before I land one on the back of your cheek, asshole.
[they begin to fight more, but Jonas steps in and grabs Addison]
Addison: Get the fuck off me!More [06/26/2007 12:06:00]
Graham Hess: Lionel Prichard and the Wolfington brothers are back.
Merrill: It's time for an ass-whupping.
Graham Hess: This is not an intelligent way to approach this. Lee is a friend of mine. This is his son.
Merrill: Yeah, we'll be doing Lee a favor. All right, listen, we both go outside, move around the house in opposite directions. We act crazy, insane with anger, make them crap in their pants, force them around till we meet up on the other side.
Graham Hess: Explain "act crazy".
Merrill: You know, curse and stuff.
Graham Hess: You want me to curse?
Merrill: You don't mean it. It's just for show. What?
Graham Hess: Well, it won't be convincing. It doesn't sound natural when I curse.
Merrill: Just make noises, then.
Graham Hess: Explain "noises".
Merrill: Are you gonna do this or what?
Graham Hess: No, I'm not.
Merrill: All right, you want them stealing something in the house next time?
[outside light comes on]
Merrill: On the count of three. One...
Graham Hess: All right.
Merrill: two... three!
Graham Hess: Ahh! I'm insane with anger!
Merrill: We're gonna beat your ass bitch! We're gonna tear your head off!
Graham Hess: I'm losing my mind! It's time for an ass-whupping!
[Merrill and Graham meet each other]
Graham Hess: I cursed.
Merrill: I heard.

Merrill: How did he get... Are you sure this is Lionel Prichard?More [06/28/2007 12:06:00]
