Do you have any idea how mad you sound?’‘Indeed I do. I have in moments of doubt considered the question of my sanity.’ (…)‘And?’‘Then I consider what a piece of work is man. How defective in reason, how mean his facilities, how ugly in form and movement, in action how like a devil, in apprehension...
I saved a girl from being attacked last night. I controlled myself.
I went to my last three years of high school in New Jersey. I just wanted to act, you know?
Oh, I just tend to believe in things when I’m writing them. For instance, when I was writing ‘Doctor Dee,’ I believed in magic. And when I wrote ‘Hawksmoor’ I believed in psychic geography. But as soon as I type the last full stop, I’m back to being a complete blank again.
Yesterday ended last night. Today is a brand-new day.
The last time I had a job that wasn’t an acting job was ’88, and I’m quite proud of that.
The lesson of the last year is this: foreign policy can’t be managed through the politics of personality, and our President would do well to take note of an observation John F. Kennedy made once he was in office – that all of the world’s problems aren’t his predecessor’s fault.

I am decidedly unfriendly during a golf game, from the first hole to the last.

Execute every act of thy life as though it were thy last.
Listen, I’m 41 years old. I’ve got two kids. I’ve got a career. The last thing I need to be doing is having a beef with A Tribe Called Quest. It’s silly and it was unnecessary. It ain’t the first time that a director hasn’t seen eye to eye with a subject and it ain’t...
I learned from my uncle that jazz, like symphony music, was built to last.
Truly the sadness will last forever, what a shame.
I just tend to do things to myself that I don’t realize I’m doing. Sometimes I bite my lip so that it splits and hurts, and yet I can’t stop. And sometimes I’d play shows on the last run, I’d scratch my neck while I was singing, and I’d horrified to see these red streaks...
The right to bear arms is because it’s the last form of defense against tyranny.
Great loves, to the last, have pulses red; All great loves that have ever died dropped dead.

I saw many people who begun their marathon races lately, but they eventually came up as top winners. I believe that your “lateness” does not account for your “lastness”. It’s not too late for you to make a start… Begin it now! No further delays!

Trivializing the Holocaust is the last thing I want to do.
