In this post, you will find great Otherwise Quotes from famous people, such as Shah Rukh Khan, Emo Philips, Brendan Gleeson, Johnny Vegas, Michel de Montaigne. You can learn and implement many lessons from these quotes.
I do have a close circle of friends and I am very fortunate to have them as friends. I feel very close to them I think friends are everything in life after your family. You come acrosslots of people all the time but you only make very few friends and you have to be true to them otherwise what’s the point in life?
Communication, that keeps everything cool. Not holdinganything back, you got to tell each other what’s on your mind, that’s really it. Otherwise when one gets mad at one, it can burst and you just let it out and it can just come out wrong.
Leisure time is only leisure time when it is earned; otherwise, leisure time devolves into soul-killing lassitude. There’s a reason so many new retirees, freed from the treadmill of work, promptly keel over on the golf course: Work fulfills us. It keeps us going.
I’m not quite that difficult, even though maybe I’m a little bitbossy. But you know, in order to get things done, you do have to be a little bit bossy sometimes or tell people what you really want. Otherwise, things just don’t get done, do they?
Play is always voluntary. What might otherwise be play is work if it’s forced.
I would say that nobody is going to work harder for your career than yourself – the one with the vision. No matterhow many people you hire, nobody is going to get is as much as yourself does. So it’s really important to be your own leader at all times and not hand it all off, otherwise the wholeempire will fall apart.
Ideas must be put to the test. That’s why we make things, otherwise they would be no more than ideas. There is often a huge difference between an idea and its realisation. I’ve had what I thought weregreat ideas that just didn’t work.
I just think I’ve always been sensitive and had difficulty containing my feelings, and I’ve always searched for outlets for that, because otherwise those feelings come out in chaotic ways that aren’t always great.
It may take practice to think more positively and more compassionately, but just as you must train a puppy to behave the way you want it to, you must train your mind to behave itself. Otherwise, like the puppy, your mind will just make a lot of messes.
Nations have always good reasons for being what they are, and the best of all is that they cannot be otherwise.
I think creative people need to do a bit of, you know, tuning into every radio station – you just do, otherwise you don’t know much about other people. You kind of have to learn a bit about yourself so you can work out how we all behave and why we do the things we do.
Danger is part of my job. It’s always there, but you can’t think about it too much otherwise you start to be too slow.
I am a professional actor, and I don’t go about moralizing about what the character does. Otherwise, seriously, why be an actor? You’re not making some kind of social statement. That’s not what actors do.
For me, exploration is about that journey to the interior, into your own heart. I’m always wondering, how will I act at my moment of truth? Will I rise up and do what’s right, even if every fiber of my being is telling me otherwise?
The bad part about being recognized is that when I walk into a restaurant and sit down, I’ve got to eat everything on the plate, whether it’s good or bad. People would take it as an insult if I did otherwise.
I used to be someone that needed nine hours of sleep; otherwise, I didn’t think I was going to sound good when I sang, and I was very disciplined and anal about my preparation. When you become a parent, there just isn’t that time, you know?
You have to have a strong sense of self in this business – otherwise they’re going to spit you out.
You’ve got to be able to pay your bills; otherwise, you’re not going to sleep at night. But beyond that, the world inside my head has always been a far richer place than the world outside it. I suppose that a lot of my art and writing are meant to bring the two together.
It’s a 12-hour cooking class for me on the set of ‘Chopped.’ You’d think I’d get sick of it, but it’s a source of endless interest to me. The only thing I don’t like about it is it’s a long day and my feethurt. Otherwise, I love it.
I come from a little island with the Caribbean Sea on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. I come from, really, nowhere, and for me, the fiction and the nonfiction, creative or otherwise, all come from the same place.
It is so gratifying to hear from people who look up to you and see you in these places that they never thought they could ever dream to be. It’s emotional. You really feel like you’re opening up people’s minds, who otherwise thought that they couldn’t dream big. That’s such a huge opportunity. It’s such a gift.
People love me when I do selfie videos, so I know they like me in music videos as well. Otherwise, I would have just been a playback singer.
It seems I have a hard time being attracted to someone unless I respect what they do on some level. Otherwise, I would feel disdain for them. Which is not always pleasant in a relationship. Sometimes it’s fun though.
If I want to tuck my son into bed and read him a story, but that means I have to take a red-eye to get to a concert – which I would never think of doing otherwise – that’s just the way it is. Even if I can’t hit the note that night, I got to tuck my child in!
The part of Stripe that I’ve always found most interesting is the idea of facilitating new commerce that wouldn’t otherwise happen. Payouts is turning out to be a big part of that. These new networks are efficient, intelligent replacements for offline behemoths.
Eventually, all of our impressions will be dead. That’s one of my favorite things about Paul F. Tompkins’ ‘Dead Authors‘ podcast is to be able to do impressions of people you’ve never otherwise think to do or get to do. I did Walt Whitman on there, and that was really fun.
I had a realyearning to make use of the opportunities I had at school. When I heard about the gap year of teachingEnglish at a Tibetan monastery, I knew I had to do something about it really quickly, otherwise it was going to get allocated.
I will give you three days to seek your shadow. Return to me in the course of that time with a well-fitted shadow, and you shallreceive a hearty welcome; otherwise, on the fourth day – remember, on the fourth day – my daughter becomes the wife of another.
I feel like every five to seven years I really need to put myself in this position of discomfort and exploration, just to survive. Otherwise I feel like I’m fallingasleep, like I’ll go crazy if I don’t do it.
When I write a novel, I want it to be completely different from a screenplay. I’m very conscious of the difference, and I want novels to work purely as novels. Otherwise I don’t see how they’ll survive – why don’t we just all go to the movies or watch television.
It was a good chance for us to play for people who would never have heard us otherwise.
I want to be helpful to the charities I support. I think you can dilute it, the more you do. You have to be a bit strong about what you do… otherwise, you risk spreading yourself a bit thin, and you can be less useful.
I get my most creative sort of energy after a show. So I love to go back to the hotel and compose new material. Generally in a rush, exactly. I have to get it out somehow, otherwise I can’t sleep, you know.
All my films have some kind of statement about something – but I have to coat it with entertainment to make it palatable. Otherwise it becomes a polemic, and people don’t want to see it. If you’re trying to get a message out to people, you’ve got to entertain them at the same time.
We have to support our local artists. It’s just that simple. Otherwise, we will have no art.
My father, OK, when we first got old enough to hunt, this was his rule: If you shoot it, you come home and eat it. Otherwise you do not shoot it, OK? You don’t just kill something for the sake of killing it, OK? If you kill it, you gottagrill it, so to speak.
At that point it certainly would be called abstract. That is to say, you had a model and there’d be one or two or three people there drawing the model but otherwise you had abstractions all around the room, even though the model was in front of you.
When I’m writing a song for another artist, I purposefully make it not for me; otherwise, I get too attached.
He that studieth revenge keepeth his own woundsgreen, which otherwise would heal and do well.
I don’t think there’s much point in bemoaning the state of the world unless there’s some way you can think of to improve it. Otherwise, don’t bother writing a book; go and find a tropical island and lie in the sun.
I tried to be just a singer of standards when I was starting out. And there was nothing special enough about my voice to make it that far. So I feel a bit like Rod Stewart. Once you’ve had that rock career, people will give you that chance where otherwise they might not.
This is a cause that musicians can take to heart because one of our main reasons for being is to share our music with other people, and this takes us to people who probably wouldn’t otherwise get to hear music on quite this level.
I drive with my knees. Otherwise, how can I put on my lipstick and talk on my phone?
I want to be able to still surprise myself, even shock myself, whether it be sexual content, whether it be about the theological content, whatever. I want to be able to knock myself sideways. Otherwise, what a waste of a life that would be.
I have too much respect for the characters I play to make them anything but as real as they can possibly be. I have a great deal of respect for all of them, otherwise I wouldn’t do them. And I don’t want to screw them by not portraying them honestly.
Yes. Otherwise I could have done a lot of Hollywood movies. After Crouching Tiger I got a lot of offers, but I turned them down because they were all victimroles – poor girls sold to America to be a wife or whatever. I know I have the ability to go deeper, to take on more original roles than that.
Literally’ – I’m not having it; people can’t go around saying ‘literally.’ Otherwise, what’s literal? There’s not another word for literally: if it isn’t figurative or metaphorical, what is it? It’s literal: there’s no substitute.
When I speak of artistic universals, I am not denying the enormous role played by culture. Obviously culture plays a tremendous role, otherwise you wouldn’t have different artistic styles – but it doesn’t follow that art is completely idiosyncratic and arbitrary, either, or that there are no universal laws.
I just realized quite early on that I’m not going to be the type who can write a novel every two years. I think you need to feel an urgency about the act. Otherwise, when you read it, you feel no urgency, either. So I don’t write unless I really feel I need to, and that’s a luxury.
Stand-up is still my favorite, but the podcast is a close second. It’s so fun, and it’s given me the opportunity to have three-hour conversations with people I wouldn’t have otherwise been able to talk to. When I talked to Maynard Keenan from Tool, I almost couldn’t believe it was happening.
My performance outfits are very Marie Antoinette, sparkly corsets… and full skirts. And then we do another look that’s ’50s-inspired. Poufy skirts, big bows. Very fun, girlie and young, but otherwise, when I’m not in costume, I dress really normal.
Most cases, I would say, in a huge amount of cases, countries that have worked with us and have used our financial facilities have come out quick… more quickly and in a better shape from a crisis than would have come out otherwise.
I definitely I prefer to sing in the car. I don’t sing in the shower, maybe its because that’s the one time I don’t need to talk to anyone so I should just shut up, otherwise I’m just, you know, jibber jabber.
Since I have difficulty definingmerit and what merit alone means – and in any context, whether it’s judicial or otherwise – I accept that different experiences in and of itself, bring merit to the system.
Bob Weir calls me a saint, but I’m ‘Saint Misbehavin’.’ They’re making a documentary about my life, and that’s the current shootingtitle. I can roll with that, but otherwise the s-word makes me really paranoid.
I trust work, directors – I don’t live in fear. All good experiences have come from trusting the universe. There is no other way to live or love. Otherwise, you create your own prison.
If you’re wearingsmoky eye makeup, a little beige or goldpencil on the inner eye corners will open up the area, but you only want to do it if the shadow is really dark. Otherwise, light pencil makes your eyes look too far apart, like a fish.
I was foreign and Jewish, with a funny name, and was very small and hated sport, a real problem at an English prep school. So the way to get round it was to become the school joker, which I did quite effectively – I was always fooling around to make the people who would otherwise dump me in the loo laugh.
Probably the only type of cosmeticsurgery I’d consider is having my bustreduced. It’s alright for my current role in ‘The Marquise’ because it’s a costume drama, which means boned corsets and a bit of cleavage, but it’s a drag otherwise.
For kind of sophisticated art I’m interested in, the largerstructuralrebuke has to be so subtle that it has to be distributed at an almost sub-atomic level. Otherwise, you fall into the kind of preachy, moralistic fable that I don’t think makes for good literature.
See, heroes never die. John Wayne isn’t dead, Elvis isn’t dead. Otherwise you don’t have a hero. You can’t kill a hero. That’s why I never let him get older.
I write all the time, but you just want to be careful what you put out. That’s all. You want to have the confidence that you’ve done what you need to do to it, because otherwise it’s an exercise in vanity.
Mind you, I’ve always been a very off-message type of fat broad; one who gladly admits she reached the size she is now solely through lack of discipline and love of pleasure, and who rather despises people (except those with proven medical conditions) who pretend that it is generally otherwise.
If I go to someplace like Switzerland, I find a lot of uptight people because they’re living amongst so much beauty; there’s no urgency in trying to find the beauty within themselves. If you’re stuck in New York, you have to somehow look within yourself – otherwise, you’d go crackers.
Otherwise, we will not be able to defeat the U.S. imperialists who boast of their technological superiority.
I have no choice about whether or not I have Parkinson‘s. I have nothing but choices about how I react to it. In those choices, there’s freedom to do a lot of things in areas that I wouldn’t have otherwise found myself in.
I do sometimes strongly hope that in a past life, my most recent life before this, I was absolutely horrible, evil, hideous. Because otherwise – well, hell, to even things up next time around, I’m going to have to pay for this one, am I not?
I’d buy joke books and try doing them at school; I always had jokes. That would be my go-to thing at parties: I’d be able to get through them if I just told enough jokes. Otherwise, I wouldn’t end up talking to anybody.
Any necessary truth, whether a priori or a posteriori, could not have turned out otherwise.
I think Americans are weirdly puritanistic about psychopharmaceuticals. There are millions of people out there who would otherwise be dead or rocking by themselves in a corner who now lead full and normal lives because of amazing and wonderfulscientificadvances.
What you don’t want to do is to hang on to the aging superstar past his prime and take resources away you can otherwise use to build a better overall team.
I’m a pretty driven person, and I’ve accepted that about myself. For a long time, I was like, ‘I’m a very laid-back person, I grew up in the country,’ but I’m also very driven, otherwise I wouldn’t be where I am right now.
I try to combine my work with my family, that’s what I aspire to. I don’t say that’s the only thing. It’s not all work and family, because otherwise you would be saying no to the many other things in life and there are many other things.
To survive, China had to open up to the West. It could not survive otherwise. This was after many millions have died of hunger in a country that was like North Korea is today. Once we became part of global competition, we had to agree to some rules. It’s painful, but we had to. Otherwise there was no way to survive.
Being a parent has taught me a lot of things already, you know, though it’s only been a year and half, and has made me address parts of myself that I would otherwise live in comfortable denial of, or you know and – you know, for instance, my self-loathing.
Besidesbuying a mansion or something, everything I wanted I always got. I’m just ready to invest it and save it. Otherwise, life can hit you, but you can’t go back to working at Home Depot. That’s why I always just be stacking.
Any new ideas go into PiL. My inspiration is everything that the human being gets up to. I don’t listen to any music when I’m in PiL-zone, because influences can poison your well. Otherwise, I listen to anything.
People ask me if I ever thought of writing a children’s book. I say, ‘If I had a serious brain injury I might well write a children’s book’, but otherwise the idea of being conscious of who you’re directing the story to is anathema to me, because, in my view, fiction is freedom and any restraints on that are intolerable.
For us, the most important thing we can do is raise people up – that is, either by giving the ability to do things they could not otherwise do, allow them to create things they couldn’t otherwise create. It’s about giving them tools; it is about empowering people.
If you want to write about people, you can make it up. But if you spend time talking to someone and examining what it is you want to write about, you discover a level of detail that you wouldn’t have noticed otherwise.
I can’t think of a story that doesn’t have something terrible in it. Otherwise, it’s dull. So when I embarked into the world of picture books, my first thought was to do something about the dark.
They were totally supportive, always saw everything I did. One of the thrills of my life was when they went to the theater to see something that I wasn’t in. It opened doors for them that otherwise would have been totally closed.
You should never ever buy a car in a panic – otherwise you’ll buy the first car you see without knowing what you’re getting.
There is a certain ancientcivility about tailors that is welcome – especially in modernLondon, which is now very much an international city, not an English city. They’re still a little vessel of Englishness in what is otherwise a pretty rambunctious place.
So many large movies come to you with a huge marketing campaign and it’s like you have to see this movie this weekend, otherwise you’ll be culturally bankrupt and can’t converse with your friends.
Reproductive choice has to be straightened out. There will never be a woman of means without choice anymore. That just seems to me so obvious. The states that changed their abortion laws before Roe are not going to change back. So we have a policy that only affects poor women, and it can never be otherwise.
I have to be fully committed to do a projectnowadays, because if I say yes to something, it means the whole family are going to have to move for the job. It’s a lot of upheaval. So, it has to be really worth it. Otherwise, I’d just as well not bother.
We’re in a good position with the Red Bulljuniors. When I look around at what other schemes there are, Red Bull has invested a huge amount in youth and should be commended for giving these guys the opportunity that might otherwise have gone missing.
I think I probably have a creepy kind of scary quality. Otherwise, I wouldn’t get jobs. But I also think it has a little bit to do with, you’ve done it a couple times, and then people see you that way.
I accept that speculation, cheerful or otherwise, about the private life is something public figures must expect, but I am lucky enough to continue to enjoy the love and support of Victoria and my children, Claudia and Freddy, and to finally be at ease with myself.
I’m not of the American ilk that, you know, your lover needs to be your best friend and know you inside out. I think he should know you well enough to please you. Otherwise, what secret will there be to tell him when you’re ninety?
Remember who you are and where you come from; otherwise, you don’t know where you are going.
The Relation we bear to the Wisdom of the Father, the Son of His Love, gives us indeed a dignity which otherwise we have no pretence to. It makes us something, something considerable even in God’s Eyes.
It’s an ancient idea that the leader of a democracy should not be the cleverest but the most average. That’s an arguable point, but the world has decided otherwise – except in America, where it still divides the country right down the middle.
As long as you keep a person down, some part of you has to be down there to hold him down, so it means you cannot soar as you otherwise might.
To me, the job of the artist is to provide a useful and intelligent vocabulary for the world to be able to articulate feelings they experience everyday, and otherwise wouldn’t have the means to express in a meaningful and useful way.
I want to avoid locking people into solutions that work only with Postfix. People should have a choice in what software they want to use with Postfix, be it anti-virus or otherwise.
At the bottom of the ocean, bacteria that are thermophilic and can survive at the steamvent heat that would otherwise produce, if fish were there, sous-vide cooked fish, nevertheless, have managed to make that a hospitable environment for them.
Harvey V. Fineberg
Humor has to surprise us; otherwise, it isn’t funny. It’s a death knell for a writer to be labeled a humorist because then it’s not a surprise anymore.
The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem.
Theodore Isaac Rubin
The fact of being an underdog changes people in ways that we often fail to appreciate. It opens doors and creates opportunities and enlightens and permits things that might otherwise have seemedunthinkable.
If people love what I do, that’s fantastic. And there’s always going to be people who don’t, and if I focus on that, then it’ll destroy me. I have to just worry about my own opinion and the opinions of the people I’m working with and people who are close to me. Otherwise, it’ll drive me crazy.
You can’t run a business based on sympathies; otherwise our business would be hampered.
If you are not a feminist in love, you fail to recognise someone who does not love you. Feminism makes love easier. Otherwise, there is the danger of feeling romantically drawn to someone who does not see you as an equal.
It is not by augmenting the capital of the country, but by rendering a greater part of that capital active and productive than would otherwise be so, that the most judiciousoperations of banking can increase the industry of the country.
Otherwise we get off the track and we do not fulfil the historical role which we want to fulfil: to help the masses, the exploited and the oppressed of the world, build a classless society, a world socialistfederation.
Such discussions help us very little to enjoy what has been well done in art or poetry, to discriminate between what is more and what is less excellent in them, or to use words like beauty, excellence, art, poetry, with a more precise meaning than they would otherwise have.
The heart of the matter seems to me to be the direct interaction between one’s making a poem in English and a poem in the language that one understands and values. I don’t see how you can do it otherwise.
If you’re serious, you really understand that it’s important that you laugh as much as possible and admit that you’re the funniest person you ever met. You have to laugh. Admit that you’re funny. Otherwise, you die in solemnity.
The child is pronounced pretty. I think it quite otherwise.
Salmon P. Chase
Hollywood, young or otherwise, is a very trend-driven town, and that can get a little out of hand at times. I just try to stay true to my own personal taste – incorporating my personality while not taking myself too seriously.
This is my way of living, and nobody’s gonna tell me otherwise.
Behind it all is surely an idea so simple, so beautiful, that when we grasp it – in a decade, a century, or a millennium – we will all say to each other, how could it have been otherwise? How could we have been so stupid?
John Archibald Wheeler
We must always set the bar high, otherwise we do not progress.
Regardless of what kind of film, the number one rule of comedy is to never take yourself too seriously and then the next rule is you can’t have any self-consciousness, otherwise it kills the laugh, and that will never change.
The inherent purpose of American government is let people seek their own goals and to encourage them to be responsible on the various adventures they have on their way to those goals, good, bad, and otherwise.
The idea of going on tour for the rest of my life with old works is not that exciting. As an artist I definitely think the work in future is going to be better than the work in the past, otherwise why do it?
I’m glad I’m a comedian. Otherwise, my life would just be a series of undocumented lowpoints.
Now the only thing I miss about sex is the cigarette afterward. Next to the first one in the morning, it’s the best one of all. It tasted so good that even if I had been frigid I would have pretended otherwise just to be able to smoke it.
What I do have is an appreciation for the fact that I’ve been very blessed and fortunate with timing, in getting opportunities that I wouldn’t have otherwise gotten, if I weren’t from a football family where my grandfather had so much success. I’m not naive enough to think otherwise.
I believe that music is a spiritual language. My everyday self is pretty mundane and boring, but when I’m making music it allows for me to communicate a kind of transcendence that I can’t communicate otherwise.
Once I was walking from The Mercer in New York – because otherwise I don’t walk anywhere – and this woman paparazzo who was following me fell over a fire hydrant and her whole tooth went through her lip. I leant over her, saying, ‘Are you all right?’ and she was still taking pictures.
If something comes that it is so extreme that you have difficulty thinking of it as a good thing, don’t think of it as a good thing and kid yourself. To the extent that you can, don’t label it a bad thing. Refusing to label something a bad thing opens you up to possibilities you would not have even considered otherwise.
These technologies can make life easier, can let ustouch people we might not otherwise. You may have a child with a birthdefect and be able to get in touch with other parents and support groups, get medical information, the latestexperimental drugs. These things can profoundly influence life. I’m not downplaying that.
Because a human being is endowed with empathy, he violates the natural order if he does not reach out to those who need care. Responding to this empathy, one is in harmony with the order of things, with dharma; otherwise, one is not.
I was lucky enough to occasionally break out of that racist situation that prevails in the Hollywood film production community. But it was racist then and it will always be that way. It will never be otherwise.
J. J. Johnson
Generally, I don’t like to walk out of a movie. It’s like a relationship – you want to see it to the end; otherwise, you won’t know if you left early or not.
It’s evolve or die, really, you have to evolve, you have to move on otherwise it just becomes stagnant.
It’s still an escape for me, painting, so it also takes me elsewhere. I don’t think I would do it otherwise.
It’s not about the past; it’s about knowing your history so that you can fight in the present. Otherwise, you don’t know who the real enemy is, what the real issue is, because it had been covered by many layers of bad information, of lies, and manipulation.
The daily press, the immediate media, is superb at synecdoche, at giving us a small thing that stands for a much larger thing. Reporters on the ground, embedded or otherwise, can tell us about or send us pictures of what happened in that place at that time among those people.
I hate when a movie just sort of ends and is so open-ended you feel like it wasn’t finished. I appreciate leaving things up to the interpretation of the audience and letting them make decisions about where things will go in the future – but the director has to make a decision; otherwise it is sort of a cop-out.
Offers come all the time, but I’m pretty particular. I really have to be wowed by a character I encounter in a script, or a storyline. I really do need to feel inspiration, otherwise I’m just happy planting perennials and making goatcheese.
I allowed the scriptwriter to come to my parties for research and it’s a good thing he did otherwise I don’t think Personal Services would’ve been so good.
I don’t get to watch a lot of TV, mainly because I’m busy working. And I pretty much try not to watch very much television at all, even American television, until I’m done with a season, because things start to creep into my head otherwise.
I am absolutely a free marketeer and I believe the creation of wealth is a good thing and anyone who doesn’t really needs to have their head examined – otherwise where are we going to get the schools, the roads, the universities, the third runway, dare I say it?
The music that I chose during my life, it wasn’t arbitrary. It was all in my family home when I was growing up. I never tried to record anything I hadn’t heard before the age of 10. Otherwise, I couldn’t do it authentically.
Growing up, I never gave a thought to being a writer. All I ever wanted to be was a traveler and explorer. Science-fiction allowed me to go places that were otherwise inaccessible, which is why I started reading it. I was going to be a lawyer, but I got saved.
For a rich and reasonablysuccessfulguy, it is impossible not to enjoy your job; otherwise, why would you spend so much time and effort doing it? I am a great fan of Norilsk, and I like this kind of challenge.
At various stages in my life, I could have stopped, or took the long rest. For some reason, my heart told me otherwise. I just kept going. Half of the time, I wasn’t sure where I was heading. The other half, I was probably taking the wrong turns. No matter.
I don’t really… go to ‘the opening of an envelope.’ I don’t really turn up to all the events, you know what I mean? If I’m involved, I’ll go, and if there’s a good friend who needs support, I’ll go, but otherwise… I don’t go. I’m probably just a bit like my grandparents; I like staying in.
Summer ends, and Autumn comes, and he who would have it otherwise would have high tide always and a full moon every night.
You see I don’t like to be really too commercial about things but in this business you’ve just got to be commercial otherwise the films don’t make money and you don’t make films and as a long as a commodity is selling it’s silly to kill it dead.
Space is something that you have to define. Otherwise, it is like anxiety, which is too vague. A fear is something specific. I like claustrophobic spaces, because at least then you know your limits.
I’m not saying that putting on makeup will change the world or even your life, but it can be a first step in learning things about yourself you may never have discovered otherwise. At worst, you could make a big mess and have a good laugh.
Every time I sit down to write, I need to commit to a word count goal, otherwise I waste too much time editing and re-editing my previous work, staring dreamily off into space, pretending that I’m thinking profound, poetic thoughts when really I’m just thinking, ‘Look at me being a writer! I’m so happy I’m a writer!’
For me, acting is all about the aesthetic. I just want to keep honing my craft. Not that I’m taking myself too seriously, but every artist should consider himself Picasso. Otherwise, you’re doing yourself an injustice.
I realised those things my ego needed – fame and success – were going to make me terriblyunhappy. So I wrenched myself away from that. I had to. I had to walk away from America and say goodbye to the biggest part of my career because I knew, otherwise, my demons would get the better of me.
The historian must have some conception of how men who are not historians behave. Otherwise he will move in a world of the dead. He can only gain that conception through personal experience, and he can only use his personal experiences when he is a genius.
Acting is so exciting to me. It’s a thrill; otherwise I wouldn’t do it. Not to be hokey, but I think life is definitely worth living, whether you’re working or not. For an actor, the character is the thing… it doesn’t matter what medium you’re in. as long as you have something to do.
Divorce is not easy, but if you genuinely put your kids first, that dictates the civility you should show each other. What example are you otherwise?
When you get quick fame and success and exposure, it makes you feel dizzy, and I didn’t want to lose my balance ’cause that’s something I’ve been struggling with for so many years. I’m not fond of the idea of making it in Hollywood. That’s not my aim; otherwise, I would have settled down in Los Angeles.
This is the person you think is your antagonist, who ends up being your greatest ally: the person who pushes, criticizes, and challenges you to meet a standard of excellence you might not otherwise achieve.
I enjoy performing, always, but when you’re taping a gig, you’ve got to blank out this mass apparatus of self-consciousness that’s surrounding you, this invitation to drown in self-consciousness. Otherwise you just won’t be able to do anything.
A message I’ve been telling myself: the cinema is very conservative, and unless you have a story that satisfies you, that is within the unchallenging zone, but you love it, you can’t do it as cinema. Otherwise, you better go do it for television, which is more daring now.
There are people with otherwise chaotic and disorganized lives, a certain type of person that’s always found a home in the restaurant business in much the same way that a lot of people find a home in the military.
I can’t comment on any outside perception. I’m happy to come out and talk about movies that I’ve worked on in a setting like this. Otherwise, I have my own life that I live which is very different and private.
Interest rate cuts have an effect in stimulating an economy by directly or indirectly making someone, somewhere, spend more than they otherwise would. That extra spending increases demand and ensures that we all carry on with work to do, without us having to slash our prices or our wrists.
I found college useful for a lot of other reasons. It exposed me to a great many influences I wouldn’t otherwise have encountered, and gave me a lot of time with some very intelligent people whose thoughts are still with me.
Overwhelmingly, Israel‘s political and military establishment want the rest of the world to act diplomatically or otherwise to stop Iran. But if that doesn’t happen, then the impulse toward the use of force will become quite strong.
I really believe at the end of the day, regardless of how noble you are or how patriotic the film might be, it has to serve as entertainment in order for your audiences to come into the theatre and watch it. Otherwise, audiences will wait and see it a few months later when it is premiered on television.
If you’re not the brightest or if you’re not great at sports, or if you’re not artistic, then you’ve got to find a way to make your mark; otherwise you’re just this tiny little insignificantdot. I didn’t want to be insignificant, so I made people laugh.
In well-functioning markets, price equals opportunity cost. Meaning that the proper way to price out and charge us for things is to charge us what those resources could otherwise have produced. This is a lesson the Soviet Union never learned at all, and the rest is history.
