'Dirty Rotten Scoundrels' is a good one because it not only turned out, I think, to be a really funny movie but it was also a delight to shoot. We were in the South of France, working with Glenne Headly and Michael Caine and Frank Oz the director - who were just fun.
'Larry Crowne' is about as bummed out a human being as one can be when he loses his job. What he is able to enjoy is something that may not be available to everybody. But it's about the value of being willing to get and willing to give good advice.
'The Dark Knight' is a really good movie that reached both critics and mainstream audiences.
'The Ecologist' has lost money from the day it was launched in 1970, and will continue until the last edition is printed. It was never set up as a business venture. It was set up as a campaign, and like all good campaigns, it costs. Its various backers have, over the years, been happy to pay that cost.
1913 wasn't a very good year. 1913 gave us the income tax, the 16th amendment and the IRS.
A bad book is as much of a labor to write as a good one, it comes as sincerely from the author's soul.
A bad man is the sort who weeps every time he speaks of a good woman.
H. L. Mencken
A bad manner spoils everything, even reason and justice; a good one supplies everything, gilds a No, sweetens a truth, and adds a touch of beauty to old age itself.
A beginner must look on himself as one setting out to make a garden for his Lord's pleasure, on most unfruitful soil which abounds in weeds. His Majesty roots up the weeds and will put in good plants instead. Let us reckon that this is already done when the soul decides to practice prayer and has begun to do so.
Saint Teresa of Avila
A big part of life is realizing what you're good at.
A black dress is beautiful! It's a good choice. It could be the wrong choice at certain events or situations, but it's very rare that you see a girl who looks bad in a black dress.
A book is good company. It is full of conversation without loquacity. It comes to your longing with full instruction, but pursues you never.
Henry Ward Beecher
A book tour is not a good opportunity to let your mind wander. You have to pay attention, remember salespeople's and interviewers' names, succinctly summarize your book in a 'selling' way, and so on.
A Buddha is someone who finds freedom in good fortune and bad.
A car is useless in New York, essential everywhere else. The same with good manners.
A celibate clergy is an especially good idea, because it tends to suppress any hereditary propensity toward fanaticism.
A chambermaid with her wits about her and a good pair of eyes knows perfectly well what goes on between her employers. She doesn't even need to listen at the door; the bathroom, the bedroom, the bedding and so many other things tell her everything. It's unbelievable how people make almost no effort to hide the signs of their dirty pleasures, yet at the same time they'll lecture others on morality, and insist on their servants being on their best behavior at all times.
A coach told my mum I had talent and I would make a very good skater.
A company is a group organized to create a product or service, and it is only as good as its people and how excited they are about creating. I do want to recognize a ton of super-talented people. I just happen to be the face of the companies.
A company is only as good as the people it keeps.
