A Quote by James Broughton on cinema



"The Secret Name of Cinema is Transformation...Transform, transform, anything everything - stairways into planets, buttercups into navels, icebergs into elephants - everything, everywhere; the old scene renewed by seeing the unseen, seen anew; transformed."

A Quote by Ronald Wilson Reagan on cinema, leadership, learning, success, and vision

To grasp and hold a vision, that is the very essence of successful leadership-not only on the movie set where I learned it, but everywhere.

A Quote by Anthony (Tony) Robbins on books, change, cinema, decisions, and life

You must know that in any moment a decision you make can change the course of your life forever: the very next person stand behind in line or sit next to on an airplane, the very next phone call you make or receive, the very next movie you see or book you read or page you turn could be the one single thing that causes the floodgates to open, and all of the things that you've been waiting for to fall into place.

Tony Robbins (1960 -)

A Quote by Denis Waitley on cinema and life

Life is the movie you see through your own eyes. It makes little difference what's happening out there. It's how you take it that counts.

A Quote by William Raspberry on ability, anticipation, cinema, entertainment, life, and time

Our growing ability to eliminate the slow-moving aspects of entertainment and go hopping from one peak to another is not without cost. Stand-up comics, movie-makers and others who earn their living entertaining no longer "waste" time with setups and plot development, lest we reach for the remote and click them off our screen. The result is a loss of subtlety, anticipation and nuance and, in the process, a coarsening of our discourse.

A Quote by unknown on age, beginning, cinema, people, and television

Young people view an average of 16 to 17 hours of television weekly, beginning as early as age 2. When video games and video cassette movies are added, some teens may be spending as many as 35 to 55 per week. More families own a television than a telephone.

A Quote by unknown on cinema, clothes, ideas, imagination, justice, people, and songs

We ran out of new ideas somewhere around 1978, since then we've been repeating ourselves. Same songs, same movies, same clothes, even the same crimes. Like this Robie guy, no imagination. He's just part of the rhythm and the rhyme of all this repeating. This is 1996, here comes the millennium. But people are nervous, they're on edge, they're jumpy. This is supposed to be something new. But we can't look that in the face, can we? So what do we do? We grab a little something from one year in the fifties and a little of something else from some other year, maybe late sixties. We think we're creating something new and different, but really, all we're doing is just repeating the same old . . . nothing. We're all copycats.

A Quote by unknown on cinema and music

You know one of the ways that movies are still better than playback? Because the music comes up, there's credits, and you always know when it's over.
