When I first did 'The Fast and the Furious', I didn't want there to be a sequel on the first one. I thought, 'Why would you rush to do a sequel - just because your first film is successful?'
Some artists want to confront. Some want to invoke thought. They're all necessary and they're all valid.
Letting a hundred flowers blossom and a hundred schools of thought contend is the policy for promoting the progress of the arts and the sciences and a flourishing culture in our land.
Travel involves a lot of waiting. I thought, 'Wow, what a perfect time to do a pose or take a breath. Yoga is so portable.
They'd say, 'The Flaming Lips And you won't believe it They're from Oklahoma City' as if we're from outer space, ... And we thought, 'That's a good thing.'
History has been kinder to Churchill than many of his contemporaries ever were. Some may be surprised to learn that the following luminary from the field of science-fiction had anything political to say at all 'Winston Churchill, the present would-be British Fuehrer, is a person with a range of ideas limited to the adventures and opportunities of British political life. He has never given evidence of thinking extensively, or of any scientific or literary capacity.... His ideology, picked up in the garrison life of India, on the reefs of South Africa, the maternal home and the conversation of wealthy Conservative households, is a pitiful jumble of incoherent nonsense. A boy scout is better equipped. He has served his purpose and it is high time he retired upon his laurels before we forget the debt we owe him....'
Read the right kinds of books and don't let the author do all of your thinking for you. Interpret thoughts into something definite in your own life. How can you apply it in your work tomorrow If you can contribute one ounce of original thought, you have dared to dream.
Nicole probably feels like it's more important to get on with the rest of her life and what she wants to do. Nicole's a smart kid and obviously she put a lot of thought into it.
At first, the thought was we'd fix it up. But after a series of visitor studies in late 2000, early 2001, the institution got behind the idea of a full-scale renovation.
I thought, 'you're on tour leading a crazy life right now, but you've just asked me to make an album and I'm going to hold you to that'. He was really encouraging, which is nice because I doubt myself often.
This was a surprise to us, since most people assumed that you don't get periodontal problems until you are age 35 or 40. We found it's more prevalent than anyone believed at a much younger age than anyone had thought,
A creature of a more exalted kind was wanting yet, and therefore was designed Conscious of thought, of more capacious breast for empire formed and fit to rule the rest.
Most of the major research collections were looted or burned or at least their status is very much in doubt. So, on one hand we have to think about what is the future of thought and culture in Iraq. And we have to remember that Iraq is a very youthful country, the majority of the population is under the age of 21. So we're very concerned about the future of this generation, what kind of materials they are going to use.
This is the first evidence that things might be better than they thought, and I think traders don't quite know what to do. I think we've been conditioned to bad news -- it's like a beaten-up prize fighter. I think it's a dangerous time to look for more of the same, meaning looking for more negative.
Picture the prince, such as most of them are today a man ignorant of the law, well-nigh an enemy to his people's advantage, while intent on his personal convenience, a dedicated voluptuary, a hater of learning, freedom and truth, without a thought for the interests of his country, and measuring everything in terms of his own profit and desires.
The best thinking was the high school should be designed around the team concept, as were the middle schools.
I'm not trying to provide any information that has to do with theology here. All we've thought is about the natural process. What theologians or anybody else does with that it's their business so to speak.
We've spent the entire year going back and forth on that question and hearing from people, what they thought, people passionate on one side and another, and have only in the last couple of days made that decision. Which we certainly won't share with you because it would be no fun ... but we have passionate advocates for both candidates in the writers' room and in the producing group, and it's been quite the brawl we've had.
What the Puritans gave the world was not thought, but action.
You have an economy that has just turned out to be bigger than everyone thought. It's growing around 10 percent, and you have reserves growing to new record highs every month. That's providing a lot of arguments for China to move a bit quicker on the currency front.
I really wish I was less of a thinking man and more of a fool not afraid of rejection.
They read 'bring the troops home' and thought, 'oh that's good,' they didn't think about the implications of cut and run.
I am willing to accept thoughts I read when I have had similar ones myself. I am more willing to accept my own thoughts than those I read. Yet, having a new thought is not an action intended in advance we don't set ourselves to have that specific new thought. If our own thoughts just 'come to us' unbidden, why should we be less receptive to ones that come through reading Perhaps because we spontaneously have only those thoughts to which we are already receptive. This may lead me to miss out on learning from those who can teach me most, those who think in a way completely different from mine. Unfortunately however, my trust in them cannot grow in the way described, so I continue to read them from an adversary stance.
It offered the opportunity to learn in an environment that really facilitated thinking. We want her to become a lifelong learner, not just someone who went to school to have facts, you know, rote facts.
Freedom of speech and freedom of action are meaningless without freedom to think. And there is no freedom of thought without doubt.
The words 'stakeholder' upgraded China's status in foreign relations and the global system. The only uncertainty in Chinese circles is whether it represents the ideas of the administration. Does the key term 'stakeholder' also represent the ideas of Secretary (of State Condoleezza) Rice, or the thinking of the President himself.
As a coach, you remain optimistic. You go into every battle, every contest, thinking if we do what's right, we play hard, we got a shot. This is about the kids of West Virginia. If you consider this proposal in that vein, how can you not vote for it
They actually felt they had been robbed in our 1-0 win so we had to come out here and squash any thought they had of winning today and show them how good we are.
He's not afraid to not conform . . . and that can upset people, so it's pretty correct that there's two clear schools of thought on Connolly. He would have his enemies, but he'd have a lot of supporters as well.
I thought, we need to educate people and teach them how to fish. It just seemed natural.
