‘Perfect Sense’ is a film about love and catastrophe, which I hope is a powerfully romantic and emotional take on the apocalyptic sub-genre. Its aim is to be a minimalist conceptmovie – where seismic events occur in simple ways that ask the audience to use their imagination.
Brethren, let usmind our own business – that is, the calling the Lord has called us to – to do everything we can to promote the good of the Cause of Truth, and never ask how big we are, or inquire who we are; but let it be, ‘What can I do to build up the Kingdom of God upon the Earth?’
To me, it’s about the Golden Rule, really at the end of the day. Treating people as you want to be treated. I just don’t feel like it’s that hard to do. It’s not that much to ask of someone to treat everyone with the respect they would want to be treated with. No matter what you look like or where you’re from.
If my grandchildren were to look at me and say, ‘You were aware species were disappearing and you did nothing, you said nothing’, that I think is culpable. I don’t know how much more they expect me to be doing, I’d better ask them.
I always tell Brock Lesnar the truth. I don’t appease Brock Lesnar. I don’t placate Brock Lesnar. When Brock Lesnar asks me for an opinion, I give to him an honest opinion that I’m willing to back up with facts, with theory.
The claims I’m making for art are simply the claims that we naturally make around music or around poetry. We’re much more relaxed around those art forms. We’re willing to ask, ‘How could this find a place in my heart?’
We don’t even know what our desire is. We ask other people to tell us our desires. We would like our desires to come from our deepest selves, our personal depths – but if it did, it would not be desire. Desire is always for something we feel we lack.
I don’t like to just talk about nothing, or less than nothing. If it’s something interesting, I’m fine with it, but, ‘Hey, Zack, how is your day?’ People ask that, and somebody actually tells them what happened in their day? I don’t have any real interest in that.
Once I hit 25, people started asking me about marriage and kids all the time. I remember hitting 35 and some would ask the same questions with a strange tone, as if my life was somehow over because I hadn’t yet settled into their version of happiness.
It’s not that I lead this oblivious life where I think I’ve got such a great personality that people want to spend time with me. If someone has a poster of you or asks for your autograph, clearly you can’t take them out on a date. It’s not that interesting if someone is just interested in you.
It’s funny, when bands or younger musicians ask me: ‘So, what does it take to make it?’ Well, first explain to me what you mean by ‘making it’: Do you want to be a rock star or do you want music to be your livelihood?
When I’m really stressed out, I go to church. I lightcandles and sit and pray. And I’ll ask myself, What’s the lesson? Why am I going through this? There’s got to be a reason I’m here. What am I supposed to learn?
Ever since I’ve been blessed with success, I’ve struggled a little with anonymity and even family. I’ve had people calling asking for money, and I have to ask them first, ‘Are you working? Have you been trying to help yourself?’ Then I feel like I can help.
The thing that I often ask startups on top of Ethereum is, ‘Can you please tell me why using the Ethereum blockchain is better than using Excel?’ And if they can come up with a good answer, that’s when you know you’ve got something really interesting.
The plan is to make money, and we know the fans are going to ask for mixtapes, and those mixtapes are going to hit. So when we put a tape out, we have more money coming in, that’s why we work hard at it.
I never stop reading. I read everything, and I read every day. If you never read anything, be curious. Curiosity is the true foundation of education, reading things that we’ve factually already agreed on, and I love reading books. With that said, it’s more important that you ask the question ‘why.’
I always want to say to people who want to be rich and famous: ‘try being rich first’. See if that doesn’t cover most of it. There’s not much downside to being rich, other than payingtaxes and having your relatives ask you for money. But when you become famous, you end up with a 24-hour job.
You know, I always when people ask me, like, what is my most favorite song, I quote Duke Ellington, when they would ask him, what’s his favorite composition? And I say, I haven’t written it yet. Because, you know, there are different songs for different occasions.
My parents have done a tremendous job, over the course of my career. They try to make every game and I think my rookieyear, my mom made every game… They’ve been really consistent and it’s all you can ask for as a kid.
Since coming out of jail, I still made mistakes daily. Don’t me wrong, I’m not an angel by any stretch of the imagination, but my mistakes are just normal ones now like forgetting to go to the shop when the missus asks or not putting the bins out, stuff like that.
I didn’t ask to be a hero, but I guess I have become one in the Christian community. So I accept it. But if I’m wrong about this, I guess I’ll become a bum.
The race of mankind would perish did they cease to aid each other. We cannot exist without mutual help. All therefore that need aid have a right to ask it from their fellow-men; and no one who has the power of granting can refuse it without guilt.
Everybody needs to show respect to each others’ ways and the cultural life that you get on this planet. Don’t get caught up on ‘I’m brown, black, white, red, blue, whatever.’ You gotta ask, what were you called before 1492? All these names we’re using now are just an illusion made to keep us fighting each other.
Without a sign, his sword the brave man draws, and asks no omen, but his country’s cause.
There ought to be an artistic depot where the artist need only hand in his artwork in order to receive what he asks for. As things are, one must be half a business man, and how can one understand – good heavens! – that’s what I really call troublesome.
What’s nice about experiments is that they are much more closelytied to what theorists think about the world than normal empirical research. You can design your experiment to exactly ask the question you want to ask. This is not true about normal empirical research.
I have sinned against You, my Lord, and I would ask that your precious blood would wash and cleanse every stain until it is in the seas of God’s forgiveness.
Newspapermen ask dumb questions. They look up at the sun and ask if it is shining.
Nowadays, people don’t ask you how you are, they say, ‘Are you busy?’ meaning, ‘Are you well?’ If someone actually does ask you how you are, the most cheerful answer, of course, is a robust ‘Busy!’ to which the person will reply ‘Good!’
Jo Ann Davis
An expert knows all the answers – if you ask the right questions.
I’ve been the luckiest man in the world because I’ve had friends, and to have the right friends is everything: people you can depend on, people who tell you the truth if you ask something.
A lost of people recognize me and maybe will ask for an autograph, but it’s nothing like if Elvis would’ve done something like that, ’cause he’s so popular, or maybe The Beatles ’cause they stirred up a lot of action.
Some people ask why people would go into a dark room to be scared. I say they are already scared, and they need to have that fear manipulated and massaged. I think of horrormovies as the disturbed dreams of a society.
Everything you want is out there waiting for you to ask. Everything you want also wants you. But you have to take action to get it.
Religion has nothing to do with God. It’s a fundamental attitude of human beings, who ask about the origins of life and what happens after death. For many, the answer is a personal god. In my opinion, it’s religion that produces God, not the other way round.
Religion is run by thought police. ‘Obey. Listen. This is what you do. Don’t ask questions. Go die for your country.’ The spiritualitysays, ‘Okay, you can die for your country, but know what you’re doing while you’re doing it.’
I don’t hate redheads! The millionaire men – wealthy men – never pick them. Every time I offer them they say no. I could say the most gorgeous redhead in the world and they’ll say no, they don’t want it. Now if you ask an Irish guy in Ireland, he says ‘yes,’ because that’s indigenous to that country.
I’m not a rock star. Sure I am, to a certain extent because of the situation, but when kids ask me how it feels to be a rock star, I say leave me alone, I’m not a rock star. I’m not in it for the fame, I’m in it because I like to play.
Take stock of your thoughts and behavior. Each night ask yourself, when were you negative when you could have been positive? When did you withhold love when you might have given it? When did you play a neurotic game instead of behaving in a powerful way? Use this process to self-correct.
I would never say yes to a fight that would take me out of the title picture if I’m in it. If I did it, I’d want to be compensated. That’s the important thing. If you ask me to do something like that, I need to be compensated correctly.
I try to ask a question rather than give a speech.
My mother imparted on me that I must be a good custodian of my father’s name and that is what I ask of my children. One should conduct themselves in the correct manner, respect one’s elders and do the right thing.
My wife never went to many Liverpool games but if she was out on a Saturday, she would always ask someone for the score. If we had won, she’d simply be relieved that I would be coming home in a good mood.
Now, I think that I should have known that he was magic all along. I did know it – but I should have guessed that it would be too much to ask to grow old with and see our children grow up together. So now, he is a legend when he would have preferred to be a man.
Sometimes I lieawake at night and ask why me? Then a voice answers nothing personal, your name just happened to come up.
Charles M. Schulz
We do not wish to have nuclear weapons on New Zealandsoil or in our harbors. We do not ask, we do not expect, the United States to come to New Zealand’s assistance with nuclear weapons or to present American nuclear capability as a deterrent to an attacker.
I have nothing to ask for, thanks to God. Everything I have, God has given me.
I want film stories to provoke a question in people about what’s going on emotionally around them and empower them in some way or ask them about themselves.
Wear what you want to wear. Do what you want to do. Be who you are. Pick out your own clothes. Be a man. And if that’s too much to ask, as it almost always is for me, think of someone you consider to be a man and pretend to be like him. I pretend to be like my dad.
Until Lee Elder, the only blacks at the Masters were caddies or waiters. To ask a black man what he feels about the traditions of the Masters is like asking him how he feels about his forefathers who were slaves.
I think I am really easygoing. Well… as I was about halfway through that sentence, I thought, ‘No, actually you’re really picky.’ But the things I ask for are really simple to do.
It doesn’t matter my political views, who I like or dislike: If a president ever asks me to do anything, I’m going to say yes.
People ask me if there are going to be stories of HarryPotter as an adult. Frankly, if I wanted to, I could keep writing stories until Harry is a seniorcitizen, but I don’t know how many people would actually want to read about a 65 year old Harry still at Hogwarts playing bingo with Ron and Hermione.
We want to get people of color out to vote, because their vote matters. Every politician tries to capture it. But it’s More Than a Vote because we want to come up with what’s our ask, and hold these politicians‘ feet to the fire to make real change.
Of course, getting to be No. 1 keeper in the world is a tough ask because there are loads of goalkeepers out there and some very good ones, too. But I always try to give my very best to reach that standard.
Here’s what happens in a play. You get involved in a situation where something is unbalanced. If nothing’s unbalanced, there’s no reason to have a play. If Hamlet comes home from school, and his dad’s not dead and asks him if he’s had a good time, it’s boring. But if something’s unbalanced, it must be returned to order.
Muhammad Ali was a god, an idol and an icon. He was boxing. Any kid that had the opportunity to talk to Ali, to get advice from Muhammad Ali, was privileged. He’s always given me time to ask questions, although I was so in awe that I didn’t ask questions.
The cinema is not a craft. It is an art. It does not mean teamwork. One is always alone on the set as before the blank page. And to be alone… means to ask questions. And to make films means to answer them.
I’ve just done a commercial in the U.S. in which I talk about stocks, shares and bonds. Everyone is amazed. They ask me: ‘You really know about that stuff or did you just learn it for the commercial?’ I tell them I wouldn’t do it unless I understood and had an interest.
The question I ask myself is: have I really just become a squeamish middle-aged man, or has something happened to the horror genre that shows a growingappetite for watching torture, or at least a desire to explore it on film? And if so, why would that be? I can’t pretend I know. I just know I don’t like it.
I believe it matters how you treat people. I believe in Heaven. I don’t believe that this is it, and then we’re done. I have a lovely relationship with God, although when I’ve lost someone or I’ve seen a sick child, I’ve had conversations with Him in which I’ve had to ask, ‘How can that be right?’
People always ask me, ‘What is it that you regret?’ And I say, ‘nothing, because I could not buy what I’ve learned.’ And I apply those things to my life I learn. And hopefully, hopefully it helps me to be a better human in the future and make better choices.
I feel fine, I don’t care who the director is. All you have to do is know what your doing – all of us – everybody in the business – that’s all you ask anyone – you know your job, I know mine, let’s go do it.
My son, Wolf, was born when I was past 40 and the author of a best-selling novel. That means he has grown up a middle-class child – one who sometimes asks me for stories of my childhood but knows nothing of what it means to grow up poor and afraid. I have worked to make sure of that.
