Movement should be a counter, whether in action scenes or dialogue or whatever. It counters where your eye is going. This style thing, for me it’s all fitted to the action, to the script, to the characters.
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.
The person that made me want to make movies, and the reason I do films, is Bruce Lee. He was an incredible actor, and he had a lot of charisma. Handsome, action, you know, everything was there. I loved Bruce Lee.
The final upshot of thinking is the exercise of volition, and of this thought no longer forms a part; but belief is only a stadium of mental action, an effect upon our nature due to thought, which will influence future thinking.
Charles Sanders Peirce
Human beings must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it.
Whereas robocalls are ever-present, the problem of contraband cellphones in prisons – that is, cellphones illegally being used by inmates – is generally out-of-sight and too easilyignored. But the need for action is just as clear.
‘Brotherhood of the Wolf’ is a very important movie because it represents something new. The director Christophe Gans came up with the idea of taking a Frenchlegend and making it some kind of really strange, almost Chinese action movie. The result is something that I haven’t seen anywherebefore.
When you are thrown onto the stage at 17 in such an enormous way, it becomes living on the edge because every step you take, every word you speak, every action you do becomes headline news. And it became, for me, life or death.
If I have been of service, if I have glimpsed more of the nature and essence of ultimate good, if I am inspired to reachwiderhorizons of thought and action, if I am at peace with myself, it has been a successful day.
When I work with other people, I try to make up for their shortcomings with my strengths, and I let others make up for my flaws with their strengths. I try to co-operate with people around me when working in a group. I like to enhance team spirit on set. I try to get everyone involved in the action.
I think it’s a good thing for a president or political leaders to want to put their values or their faith into action. Desmond Tutu did that in South Africa. Martin Luther King Jr. did that here. This is a good thing.
A man who waits to believe in action before acting is anything you like, but he’s not a man of action. You must act as you breathe.
I look at the action scenes as placeholders when I arrive on a script, knowing that I’m going to expand on them when I understand the constraints of the movie, the locations of where we’re shooting, the abilities of the actors, and where we want to go with the characters.
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.
The real ‘action’ in the liturgy in which we are all supposed to participate is the action of God himself. This is what is new and distinctive about the Christian liturgy: God himself acts and does what is essential.
The sixth man, the position, I don’t have a problem with, but the award – it’s not that it’s not important, but being singled out, it’s like affirmative action or something like that to me. So, it’s like, whatever.
More and more businesses are seeing the potential of a more sustainable business model, driven both by the firm belief that business can be a force for good and by the realization that the cost of inaction often exceeds the cost of action – notably when it comes to the growing threat of climate change and water scarcity.
Assurance, action, and evidence influence each other in an ongoing process. This helix is like a coil, and as it spirals upward it expands and widens. These three elements of faith – assurance, action, and evidence – are not separate and discrete; rather, they are interrelated and continuous and cycle upward.
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thou.
To stop terrorists before the strike, we must do three things: deny them entry into the country, curtail their freedom of action inside the country, and deprive them of material and moral support from within the country.
Personal success or personalsatisfaction are not worth another thought if one does achieve them, or worth worrying about if they evade one or are slow in coming. All that is really worth while is action – faithful action, for the world, and in God.
Religion is simply one of a multitude of factors – economic political, cultural, social, tribal, racial – which shape and drive human action and reaction and often is the least important of those factors.
One of the first movies my dad took me to see was the original ‘Road Warrior.’ And I was kind of raised on the action movies of that era: ‘The Terminator’ and ‘Die Hard’ and, of course, all of the ‘Star Wars‘ movies.
Everybody was trying to put me in action movies and heroic roles, and I wanted to find more complex things. They just didn’t suit my taste, so I thought, ‘OK, I have to be brave enough to say no.’ And for a while, that hurt me immeasurably in the Hollywood world.
Rob Thomas, the Action Bronson and the Riff Raff. Both the musicians, they know who I am and they know I come from oldest country in the world and if I want my words like the music. I forever love them like the FrankSinatra.
Is fear preventing you from taking action? Acknowledge the fear, watch it, take your attention into it, be fully present with it. Doing so cuts the link between the fear and your thinking. Don’t let the fear rise up into your mind. Use the power of the Now. Fear cannot prevail against it.
We are not sent into this world mainly to enjoy the loveliness therein, nor to sit us down in passive ease; no, we were sent here for action. The soul that seeks to do the will of God with a pure heart, fervently, does not yield to the lethargy of ease.
Human beings are born solitary, but everywhere they are in chains – daisy chains – of interactivity. Social actions are makeshift forms, often courageous, sometimes ridiculous, always strange. And in a way, every social action is a negotiation, a compromise between ‘his,’ ‘her’ or ‘their’ wish and yours.
In the split second from the time the ball leaves the pitcher‘s hand until it reaches the plate you have to think about your stride, your hip action, your wrist action, determine how much, if any the ball is going to break and then decide whether to swing at it.
For any movement to gain momentum, it must start with a small action. This action becomes multiplied by the masses, and is made tangible when leadership changes course due to the weight of the movement’s voice.
The action we take and the decisions we make in this decade will have consequences far into this century. If America showsweakness and uncertainty, the world will drift toward tragedy. That will not happen on my watch.
Originals are nonconformists, people who not only have new ideas but take action to champion them. They are people who stand out and speak up. Originals drive creativity and change in the world. They’re the people you want to bet on.
I like to treatpaint as material – to daub it, drop it, let it slide. There was Action Painting, but I also compare it to paint effects found on the streets. This approach is superimposed on a sculptural surface that is also ‘painterly.’
I have long argued that ISIS and Assad are not separate problems to be chosen between, but are action and reaction, cause and symptom, chicken and egg: impossible to untangle no matter how much we might like to.
When you have enough understanding and compassion in you, then that amount of understanding and compassion will try to express itself in action. And your practice should help you to cultivate more understanding and compassion.
I think it’s very important to get ego out of the room. I think it’s important to realize it takes two hands to clap – stop the pointing, stop the blame game. I think we’ve seen enough of that, I think the country is tired of it. I think they want to see Washington function, they want to see action.
WWE prepares you for everything in entertainment. It’s the truth. You need a host? Get a WWE Superstar. You need someone for an action movie, a comedy movie, a drama movie, you get a WWE Superstar. Because these guys are the most well-versed, well-trained, and hardest working guys out there.
Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limitsdrawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant‘s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.
When James Cameron brought me the script, which I developed with both Cameron and Jay Cocks, I wanted to make it a thriller, an action film, but with a conscience, and I found that it had elements of social realism.
We have the ability to completely change our environment to go… to take on… to inherit, in a certain sense, things far beyond our DNA, and that’s inheritable. And we can see evolution in action as our ideas evolve and undergo a kind of Darwinian selection not at the DNA level. And we can go off into space.
Although… the Chief Magistrate must almost of necessity be chosen by a party and stand pledged to its principles and measures, yet in his official action he should not be the President of a party only, but of the whole people of the United States.
As for me, it is interesting to play a role that is not human; it is nice to be all powerful without fancy action scenes. But, it is not funny to play God, even on film. You don’t speak much and just smile beatifically.
Prior to ‘Action’ and ‘Justice League 1,’ there was no label ‘superhero’ for a superpowered being. It’s really the emergence of Superman and the Justice League that gets the public comfortable with the idea of people amongst us who have extraordinary power and that they’ve agreed to be our champions.
I think paranormal experiences are very personal, again, if they are that. Yes, sometimes I’ve felt that some things I would personally believe enough for me to take action on it… like, you know, I felt something happen in a hotel once that made me never stay there again.
Concern should drive us into action, not into a depression.
Act as if the maxim of your action were to become through your will a be general natural law.
I see the first ‘Bourne’ movie as really kind of a fulcrum in changing the modern action film, where things are really gritty and really character-driven. Think about how the entire Bond franchise was completely radicalized by Bourne.
Only through the conscious action of the working masses in city and country can it be brought to life, only through the people’s highest intellectual maturity and inexhaustible idealism can it be brought safely through all storms and find its way to port.
The science of politics is the one science that is deposited by the streams of history, like the grains of gold in the sand of a river; and the knowledge of the past, the record of truthsrevealed by experience, is eminently practical, as an instrument of action and a power that goes to making the future.
We have adopted a multi-pronged strategy against the attempts to radicalise the youth of the country. On the one hand, we have successfully de-radicalised our youth, and on the other hand, our security agencies have also taken action against certain individuals for their links and association with terror organisations.
Women tell things in more interesting ways. They live with more feeling. They observe themselves and their lives. Men are more impressed with action. For them, the sequence of events is more important.
It is energy – the centralelement of which is will – that produces the miracle that is enthusiasm in all ages. Everywhere it is what is called force of character and the sustaining power of all great action.
Mostly, when you are shooting for action or intimate scenes, and you need to hold them, it takes away the mood if you both are not in sync. I have faced such situations and I think having a good bond with your co-stars only adds value to the scene.
Audiences like me doing action and comedy. I am a jovial person and have been so from childhood. I like to laugh my way through my work, and that attitude reflects in my roles. Even women hate me doing rona-dhona roles. So I don’t do emotional films.
