My subject enlarges itself, becomes methodized and define, and the whole, though it be long, stands almost complete and finished in my mind, so that I can survey it, like a fine picture or a beautiful statute, at a glance.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The best part of beauty is that which no picture can express.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The true picture of the past flits by. The past can be seized only as an image which flashes up at the instant when it can be recognized and is never seen again.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The person with a fixed goal, a clear picture of his desire, or an ideal always before him, causes it, through repetition, to be buried deeply in his subconscious mind and is thus enabled, thanks to its generative and sustaining power, to realize his goal in a minimum of time and with a minimum of physical effort. Just pursue the thought unceasingly. Step by step you will achieve realization, for all your faculties and powers become directed to that end.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To create power is like a magnet, this is true because this creative power operates like a magnet. Give it a strong clear picture of what you want and this creative power starts to work magnetizing conditions about you -- attracting to you things, resources, opportunities, circumstances and even the people you need, to help bring to pass in your outer life what you have pictured.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The whole idea is to enable you to see mentally the picture at all hours of the day.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The Church cannot be content to live in its stained-glass house and throw stones through the picture window of modern culture.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Your purpose is to make your audience see what you saw, hear what you heard, feel what you felt. Relevant detail, couched in concrete, colorful language, is the best way to recreate the incident as it happened and to picture it for the audience.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What arouses the indignation of the honest satirist is not, unless the man is a prig, the fact that people in positions of power or influence behave idiotically, or even that they behave wickedly. It is that they conspire successfully to impose upon the public a picture of themselves as so very sagacious, honest and well-intentioned.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Vision -- It reaches beyond the thing that is, into the conception of what can be. Imagination gives you the picture. Vision gives you the impulse to make the picture your own.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Mr. Lely, I desire you would use all your skill to paint my picture truly like me, and not flatter me at all; but remark all these roughnesses, pimples, warts, and everything as you see me, otherwise I will never pay a farthing for it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The successful Accelerated Reader is able to read larger than normal blocks or bites of the printed page with each eye stop. He has accepted, without reservation, the philosophy that the most important benefit of reading is the gaining of information, ideas, mental picture and entertainment-not the fretting over words. He has come to the realization that words in and of themselves are for the most part insignificant.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No one who has seen a baby sinking back satiated from the breast and falling asleep with flushed cheeks and a blissful smile can escape the reflection that this picture persists as a prototype of the expression of sexual satisfaction in later life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
That which, perhaps, hears more nonsense than anything in the world, is a picture in a museum.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As a general truth, it is safe to say that any picture that produces a moral impression is a bad picture.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The explanation of the propensity of the English people to portrait painting is to be found in their relish for a Fact. Let a man do the grandest things, fight the greatest battles, or be distinguished by the most brilliant personal heroism, yet the English people would prefer his portrait to a painting of the great deed. The likeness they can judge of; his existence is a Fact. But the truth of the picture of his deeds they cannot judge of, for they have no imagination.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The mythology of science asserts that with many different scientists all asking their own questions and evaluating the answers independently, whatever personal bias creeps into their individual answers is cancelled out when the large picture is put together. This might conceivably be so if scientists were women and men from all sorts of different cultural and social backgrounds who came to science with very different ideologies and interests. But since, in fact, they have been predominantly university-trained white males from privileged social backgrounds, the bias has been narrow and the product often reveals more about the investigator than about the subject being researched.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We are all captives of the picture in our head -- our belief that the world we have experienced is the world that really exists.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For imagination sets the goal picture which our automatic mechanism works on. We act, or fail to act, not because of will, as is so commonly believed, but because of imagination.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You return and again take the proper course, guided by what? -- By the picture in mind of the place you are headed for...More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The truth is, as every one knows, that the great artists of the world are never Puritans, and seldom even ordinarily respectable. No virtuous man -- that is, virtuous in the Y.M.C.A. sense -- has ever painted a picture worth looking at, or written a symphony worth hearing, or a book worth reading, and it is highly improbable that the thing has ever been done by a virtuous woman.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I never hit a shot, not even in practice, without having a very sharp, in-focus picture of it in my head. First I see the ball where I want it to finish, nice and white and sitting up high on the bright green grass. Then the scene quickly changes, and I see the ball going there: its path, trajectory, and shape, even its behavior on landing. Then there is a sort of fade-out, and the next scene shows me making the kind of swing that will turn the previous images into reality.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
He who sacrifices his conscience to ambition burns a picture to obtain the ashes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The usual picture of Socrates is of an ugly little plebeian who inspired a handsome young nobleman to write long dialogues on large topics.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
That the outer man is a picture of the inner, and the face an expression and revelation of the whole character, is a presumption likely enough in itself, and therefore a safe one to go on; borne out as it is by the fact that people are always anxious to see anyone who has made himself famous. Photography offers the most complete satisfaction of our curiosity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is not the literal past that rules us, save, possibly, in a biological sense. It is images of the past. Each new historical era mirrors itself in the picture and active mythology of its past or of a past borrowed from other cultures. It tests its sense of identity, of regress or new achievement against that past.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Great living starts with a picture held in the imagination, of what you would like to do or be.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Understand that you, yourself, are no more than the composite picture of all your thoughts and actions. In your relationships with others, remember the basic and critically important rule: If you want to be loved, be lovable. If you want respect, set a respectable example!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Young Noah: It's not about following your heart and it's not about keeping your promises. It's about security.
Young Allie: What's that supposed to mean?
Young Noah: [yelling] Money. He?s got a lot of money!
Young Allie: You smug bastard. I hate you for saying that.
Young Noah: You're bored Allie. You're bored and you know it. You wouldn't be here if you weren't.
Young Allie: You arrogant son of a bitch.
Young Noah: Would you just stay with me?
Young Allie: Stay with you? What for? Look at us, we're already fightin'
Young Noah: Well that's what we do, we fight... You tell me when I am being an arrogant son of a bitch and I tell you when you are a pain in the ass. Which you are, 99% of the time. I'm not afraid to hurt your feelings. You have like a 2 second rebound rate, then you're back doing the next pain-in-the-ass thing.
Young Allie: So what?
Young Noah: So it's not gonna be easy. It's gonna be really hard. We're gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, for ever, you and me, every day. Will you do something for me, please? Just picture your life for me? 30 years from now, 40 years from now? What's it look like? If it's with him, go. Go! I lost you once, I think I can do it again. If I though that's what you really wanted. But don't you take the easy way out.
Young Allie: What easy way? There is no easy way, no matter what I do, somebody gets hurt.
Young Noah: Would you stop thinking about what everyone wants? Stop thinking about what I want, what he wants, what your parents want. What do YOU want? What do you WANT?
Young Allie: It's not that simple.
Young Noah: What... do... you... want? Whaddaya want?
Young Allie: I have to go now.More [07/13/2005 12:07:00]
Uncle Rico: We also need someway to make us look official, like we got all the answers.

Kip: That's true, that's true.More [08/31/2005 12:08:00]
Rick: Why do these guys have to be black? No matter how we spin this thing, I'm either gonna lose the black vote or I'm gonna lose the law and order vote!
Karen: You know, I think you're worrying too much. You have a lot of support in the black community.
Rick: ll right. if we can't duck this thing, we're gonna have to neutralize it. What we need is a picture of me pinning a medal on a black man. The firefighter - the one that saved the camp or something - Northridge... what's his name?
Bruce: He's Iraqi.More [09/12/2005 12:09:00]
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 had to go to a mirror and look at it. I couldn't picture myself in my own head. I had no image beyond a stick figure. I wasn't a mean person as a kid, or dumb, and something has to be said to justify excluding you.More [10/30/2005 12:10:00]

Elena: Wait until you see this place, it's beautiful.
Claire Spencer: It is.
Norman: It's haunted.
Norman: Claire's hearing things.
Elena: What are you hearing?
Claire Spencer: I don't know, eh voices, whispering, and a picture fell.
Elena: You know completely believe in that stuff.
Claire Spencer: You do?
Elena: I do!More [01/02/2006 12:01:00]
OO Spool: My dog barks some. Mentally you picture my dog, but I have not told you the type of dog which I have. Perhaps you even picture Toto, from "The Wizard of Oz." But I warn you, my dog is always with me. WOOF!More [02/26/2006 12:02:00]

The freshness must be strictly internal, how we do little things. The big picture is not going to change that much.More [05/07/2006 12:05:00]
It was surprising for a picture called Elf. It was actually edgy. I think the nice thing about the film is that my mother laughed, my kids laughed, my friends laughed, and usually when they call something a family movie, I think, "uh-oh! I'll have to suffer through it."More [05/15/2006 12:05:00]

And I had known Peter O'Toole before in London. And I'd liked him very much. And the thought of being in a picture with him was very challenging to me. And he was playing the starring role.More [06/07/2006 12:06:00]

What it all really comes down to is reading a character that you think that you can do well. That's the hard part. finding that, and you hope that it falls into something like the war picture or the western.More [06/26/2006 12:06:00]
It started with having to slop on all this makeup to get my picture taken, and having to walk around all day looking like I was some hot thing.More [07/02/2006 12:07:00]
Right now, I love the fact that I have so many opportunities, but I know this privileged position cannot last. That doesn't mean that I'll stop working. I picture myself as an old actress doing cameos in films with people saying: "Isn't that that Bening woman?"More [07/26/2006 12:07:00]
There were days that I worked all the time, without a layoff, or a rest, finishing one picture and reporting for another sometimes on the same day.More [08/17/2006 12:08:00]
I've seen it too many times in Hollywood. Talking about a relationship in public can jinx it. And if you have your picture taken together, you might as well start packing your bags.More [08/20/2006 12:08:00]

“I mean it's weird because the thing that I love about acting is the fact that I can help people feel things, know themselves or feel less alone. It's my form of expression, in the same way that someone might paint a picture or sing a song in that you're hoping that it moves somebody outside of their own way of thinking.”More [09/26/2006 12:09:00]
“She had a great emotional journey in the first one and it was not just your classic genre picture with a damsel-in-distress kind of role. It was more than that and that's what drew me to the first.
