Tags: Lost, Sometimes  ✍ Author: Dianna Agron

There is a need for aloneness, which I don't think most people realise for an actor. It's almost having certain kinds of secrets for yourself that you'll let the whole world in on only for a moment, when you're acting. But everybody is always tugging at you. They'd all like sort of a chunk of you.

Tags: Acting, Yourself  ✍ Author: Marilyn Monroe

Tags: Difference, Notice  ✍ Author: Salvador Dali

Meryl Streep's brilliant, just brilliant. I've been fortunate to do two movies with Meryl. And for an actor to go moment to moment like she does, there's no one better.

Tags: Between, Movies  ✍ Author: Jeff Daniels

Creating these messes that go from administration to administration and then you swoop in and clean them up - with that heroic Delta force - people not realizing that they were always there but doing different things than what we see them doing at the moment.

I'm a creature of adaptation. I take advantage of the second and the moment. My comedy breathes; it's not really that predictable.

Tags: Talk, Thinking  ✍ Author: Tommy Davidson

Tags: Car, Someday  ✍ Author: Evan Davis

Tags: Bad, Good  ✍ Author: Dale Earnhardt

Meanwhile the fact that the connection with the activity of memory in ordinary life is for the moment lost is of less importance than the reverse, namely, that this connection with the complications and fluctuations of life is necessarily still a too close one.

Tags: Life, Lost  ✍ Author: Hermann Ebbinghaus

Tags: Him, Peace  ✍ Author: Jill Eikenberry

I don't have a place that I call home at the moment because there's no point. I mean, I'm a traveling circus for a while. It's weird. Like, if I wanted to go home, there's nowhere to go. I just go to a hotel. But I've kind of gotten used to it.

Tags: Home, Mean  ✍ Author: Idris Elba

Now there are certain things you have to prepare - like dialect and special skills. But in the moment, interaction between two characters on the page doesn't need - for me, I don't need to prepare that.

Tags: Between, Special  ✍ Author: Idris Elba

In the beginning, everybody that gets to work with me, thinks I'm nice. But three weeks later, they hear a bell ringing. Then they realise I meant everything I said during that first week. It's not my fault people are not taking me serious from the first moment.

Tags: Memorable, Playing  ✍ Author: Jenna Elfman

Tags: Acting, Character  ✍ Author: Jenna Elfman

I've walked a lot in the mountains in Iceland. And as you come to a new valley, as you come to a new landscape, you have a certain view.

Tags: Big, Start  ✍ Author: Mircea Eliade

Tags: Living, Ungrateful  ✍ Author: Suzanne Farrell

Even though I am a professional, and I know what the steps are, I don't quite know how I'm going to do them, because I haven't lived that moment yet. I always feel very insecure and I get very excited.

Tags: Insecure, Though  ✍ Author: Suzanne Farrell

I definitely subscribe to the idea that 9/11, to use an overused phrase, was a wake-up call. There was a year-long national teach-in on Islam - everyone read books and suddenly talked about Islam, and that was very productive. But there's no doubt that moment has passed.

Tags: Doubt, Islam  ✍ Author: Bruce Feiler

There have been times I've planted stuff in songs where four years later I'll be singing it from a subconscious, kind of chameleon little lizard mind... and at a certain moment, all of a sudden, I'll hear a line from a different vantage point and it'll change its meaning. It's something I wrote but it changed because I did.

Tags: Change, Mind  ✍ Author: Feist

You know, I'm not a revolutionary.

Tags: Car, Wait  ✍ Author: Tom Felton

I don't like improv at all. It terrifies me. I like to know exactly what I'm going to say. Being surprised does make me a better actor. Anytime I'm afraid of something that makes me rise to the occasion, it scares me, but it's what makes great actors - being in the moment.

Tags: Afraid, Great  ✍ Author: Jesse Tyler Ferguson
