Constant rejection. No security. Career paths being dictated by freelance reviewers. And of course, the terror of the writing desk, of the blank page. Why is it so hard for our non-writer friends to understand this - that it's a job?Darin Strauss Being Dictated To Sayings By Darin Strauss: Constant rejection. No security. Career paths being dictated by freelance reviewers. And of course, the
On Hayao Miyazaki
I told Miyazaki I love the "gratuitous motion" in his films; instead of every movement being dictated by the story, sometimes people will just sit for a moment, or they will sigh, or look in a running stream, or do something extra, not to advance the story but only to give the sense of time and place and who they are.
"We have a word for that in Japanese," he said, "It's called ma. Emptiness. It's there intentionally."
Is that like the "pillow words" that separate phrases in Japanese poetry?
"I don't think it's like the "pillow word." He clapped his hands three or four times. "The time in between my clapping is ma. If you just have non-stop action with no breathing space at all, it's just busyness, but if you take a moment, then the tension building in the film can grow into a wider dimension. If you just have constant tension at 80 degrees all the time you just get numb.
Roger Ebert Being Dictated To Sayings By Roger Ebert: On Hayao MiyazakiI told Miyazaki I love the "gratuitous motion" in his films; instead of
I can never consent to being dictated to.John Tyler Being Dictated To Sayings By John Tyler: I can never consent to being dictated to.
Plays are literature: the word, the idea. Film is much more like the form in which we dream - in action and images (Television is furniture). I think a great play can only be a play. It fits the stage better than it fits the screen. Some stories insist on being film, can't be contained on stage. In the end, all writing serves to answer the same question: Why are we alive? And the form the question takes - play, film, novel - is dictated, I suppose, by whether its story is driven by character or place.Israel Horovitz Being Dictated To Sayings By Israel Horovitz: Plays are literature: the word, the idea. Film is much more like the form in
In the beginning, I found myself dealing with a show business dictated by male white supremacists and chauvinists. As a black female, I had to learn how to tap dance around the situation. I had to ... find a way to present my point of view without being pushy or aggressive. In the old days, the only women I saw in this business were in makeup, hairdressing, and wardrobe departments. Now I'm surrounded by women executives, writers, directors, producers, and even women stagehands.Diahann Carroll Being Dictated To Sayings By Diahann Carroll: In the beginning, I found myself dealing with a show business dictated by male white
I loved doing all those costume dramas. I didn't think, 'Ooh I've got to avoid being typecast' - you can't ever be dictated to by what other people think. I just do things because I fancy the parts and the directors.Helena Bonham Carter Being Dictated To Sayings By Helena Bonham Carter: I loved doing all those costume dramas. I didn't think, 'Ooh I've got to avoid
I like the model of people getting together to make something when they want to do it and not being dictated to by a cycle.Babatunde Adebimpe Being Dictated To Sayings By Babatunde Adebimpe: I like the model of people getting together to make something when they want to
Baley tried to picture a world as a sphere being lit and unlit as it turned. He found it hard to do and felt scornful of the so-superior Spacers who let such an essential thing as time be dictated to them by the vagaries of planetary movements.Isaac Asimov Being Dictated To Sayings By Isaac Asimov: Baley tried to picture a world as a sphere being lit and unlit as it
For years, he's been listening to her complain about being ignored by Justin and assuring it her it was simply a matter of time until his friend saw the light. After all, if Henry was friends with Neerja and Henry was friends with Justin then, logically, Justin would be friends with Neerja. According to Henry, their eventual relationship was dictated by the transitive property.

But Neerja didn't want to be 'just friends' with Justin, and she was tired of waiting for the transitive property to jump-start her love life.
Sarah Strohmeyer Being Dictated To Sayings By Sarah Strohmeyer: For years, he's been listening to her complain about being ignored by Justin and assuring
Best followed now is this life, by hurrying, like itself, to a close.
Few things remain.
He was repulsed in efforts after a pension by certain caprices of law. His scars proved his only medals. He dictated a little book, the record of his fortunes. But long ago it faded out of print--himself out of being--his name out of memory. He died the same day that the oldest oak on his native hills was blown down.
Herman Melville Being Dictated To Sayings By Herman Melville: Best followed now is this life, by hurrying, like itself, to a close.Few things remain.He
any movement which is worth while, any action which has any deep significance, must begin with each one of us. I must change first; I must see what is the nature and structure of my relationship with the world - and in the very seeing is the doing; therefore I, as a human being living in the world, bring about a different quality, and that quality, it seems to me, is the quality of the religious mind.

The religious mind is something entirely different from the mind that believes in religion...A religious mind does not seek at all, it cannot experiment with truth. Truth is not something dictated by your pleasure or pain, or by your conditioning as a Hindu or whatever religion you belong to. The religious mind is a state of mind in which there is no fear and therefore no belief whatsoever but only what is - what actually is.
Jiddu Krishnamurti Being Dictated To Sayings By Jiddu Krishnamurti: any movement which is worth while, any action which has any deep significance, must begin
Being a woman, I have found the road rougher than had I been born a man. Different defenses, different codes of ethics, different approaches to problems and personalities are a woman's lot. I have preferred to shun what is known as feminine wiles, the subterfuge of subtlety, reliance on tears and coquetry to shape my way. I am forthright, often blunt. I have learned to be a realist despite my romantic, emotional nature. I have no illusions that age, the rigors of my profession, disappointments, and unfulfilled dreams have not left their mark.

I am proud that I have carved my path on earth almost entirely by my own efforts, proud that I have compromised in my career only when I had no other recourse, when financial or contractual commitments dictated. Proud that I have never been involved in a physical liaison unless I was deeply attracted or in love. Proud that, whatever my worldly goods may be, they have been achieved by my own labors.
Joan Fontaine Being Dictated To Sayings By Joan Fontaine: Being a woman, I have found the road rougher than had I been born a
The problem a lot of writers have is that they really, really enjoy people saying, "You're brilliant." They let their self-perception be dictated by reader response. But if you're going to let other people make you feel good, you're going to end up feeling bad when they say the opposite. You've got to be a cultural stoic. Then you won't be devastated by people who respond negatively. Of course, the downside is that it sort of stops you from being able to enjoy people liking your work.Chuck Klosterman Being Dictated To Sayings By Chuck Klosterman: The problem a lot of writers have is that they really, really enjoy people saying,
The connection between imperial politics and culture is astonishingly direct. American attitudes to American "greatness", to hierarchies of race, to the perils of "other" revolutions (the American revolution being considered unique and somehow unrepeatable anywhere else in the world) have remained constant, have dictated, have obscured, the realities of empire, while apologists for overseas American interests have insisted on American innocence, doing good, fighting for freedom.Edward W. Said Being Dictated To Sayings By Edward W. Said: The connection between imperial politics and culture is astonishingly direct. American attitudes to American "greatness",
[On disagreeing with her husband about his slave-holding:] I cannot give my conscience into the keeping of another human being or submit the actions dictated by my conscience to their will.Fanny Kemble Being Dictated To Sayings By Fanny Kemble: [On disagreeing with her husband about his slave-holding:] I cannot give my conscience into the
As a Liberal of course I am very strongly committed to the notion of artistic freedom and very hostile to the idea of there being a single view of cultural policy dictated from on high.George Brandis Being Dictated To Sayings By George Brandis: As a Liberal of course I am very strongly committed to the notion of artistic
...but that very thought, that she might become his wife, had for some reason entered his head the very first time she sat in his study at a little round table, diligently taking down in shorthand the words he dictated in his muffled voice - and he had been purposely dry and sharp with her that day, so she would not feel the power she had already gained over him, but when, as he dictated to her, he imagined himself kneeling before her beneath the flickering light of a nearly spent candle and kissing her feet, with her unable to leave because she was his wife, and about to blow out the candle so they could plunge into the passionate, exquisite swim, then his voice became hoarse and he shut his eyes to blot out the sight of this little girl, as he purposely tried to picture her to help restrain his imagination, girl students being as untouchable as postulants...Leonid Tsypkin Being Dictated To Sayings By Leonid Tsypkin: ...but that very thought, that she might become his wife, had for some reason entered
It was a complex chain of oppression in Virginia. The Indians were plundered by white frontiersmen, who were taxed and controlled by the Jamestown elite. And the whole colony was being exploited by England, which bought the colonists' tobacco at prices it dictated and made 100,000 pounds a year for the King. Berkeley himself, returning to England years earlier to protest the English Navigation Acts, which gave English merchants a monopoly of the colonial trade, had said: . . . we cannot but resent, that forty thousand people should be impoverish'd to enrich little more than forty Merchants, who being the only buyers of our Tobacco, give us what they please for it, and after it is here, sell it how they please; and indeed have forty thousand servants in us at cheaper rates, than any other men have slaves. . . .Howard Zinn Being Dictated To Sayings By Howard Zinn: It was a complex chain of oppression in Virginia. The Indians were plundered by white
The strange idea of having to love God so that He does not punish me for my rebelliousness and disappointment, but instead rewards me with the love that forgives all, becomes just as much the expression of our childish dependency and insecurity as the assumption that, like our parents, God is in desperate need of our love. But is this not a completely grotesque idea? A higher being dependent on inauthentic feelings dictated by morality is strongly reminiscent of the insecurity displayed by our frustrated and disoriented parents. Such a being can be called God only by people who have never questioned their own parents or thought about their dependency on them.Alice Miller Being Dictated To Sayings By Alice Miller: The strange idea of having to love God so that He does not punish me
People, he had said, were always being looked at as points, and they ought to be looked at as lines. There weren't any points, it was false to assume that a person ever was anything. He was always becoming something, always changing, always continuous and moving, like the wiggly line on a machine used to measure earthquake shocks. He was always what he was in the beginning, but never quite exactly what he was; he moved along a line dictated by his heritage and his environment, but he was subject to every sort of variation within the narrow limits of his capabilities.
...
She shut her mind on that too. There was danger in looking at people as lines. The past spread backward and you saw things in perspective that you hadn't seen then, and that made the future ominous, more ominous than if you just looked at the point, at the moment. There might be truth in what Bruce said, but there was not much comfort.
Wallace Stegner Being Dictated To Sayings By Wallace Stegner: People, he had said, were always being looked at as points, and they ought to
These so-called big stars are people we are supposed to be looking up to. Well they are weak and soft. Priorities have changed in football and they are being dictated to by their wives.Roy Keane Being Dictated To Sayings By Roy Keane: These so-called big stars are people we are supposed to be looking up to. Well
Wheels have been set in motion, and they have their own pace, to which we are ... condemned. Each move is dictated by the previous one - that is the meaning of order. If we start being arbitrary it'll just be a shambles: at least, let us hope so. Because if we happened, just happened to discover, or even suspect, that our spontaneity was part of their order, we'd know that we were lost. A Chinaman of the T'ang Dynasty - and, by which definition, a philosopher - dreamed he was a butterfly, and from that moment he was never quite sure that he was not a butterfly dreaming it was a Chinese philosopher. Envy him; his two-fold security.Tom Stoppard Being Dictated To Sayings By Tom Stoppard: Wheels have been set in motion, and they have their own pace, to which we
The majority of men cannot be made disinterested for life by exhortation, by religious services, by any expenditure of subsidized works, or even by grave and manifest public need. They can be made permanently unselfish only by being helped to become disinterested in their individual purposes. In the complete democracy a man must in some way be made to serve the nation in the very act of contributing to his own individual fulfillment. Not until his personal action is dictated by disinterested motives can there be any such harmony between private and public interests.Herbert Croly Being Dictated To Sayings By Herbert Croly: The majority of men cannot be made disinterested for life by exhortation, by religious services,
What is success? What does it mean that someone is successful?
Success can be different things to different people. For us being successful is a conscious choice to be oneself. Success does not have to be dependent on any external circumstances and rules dictated by the mainstream society.
It does not matter where we live and what we possess. When we love and support ourselves unconditionally choosing to be ourselves as much as we can, this is for us, Being Successful.
Raphael Zernoff Being Dictated To Sayings By Raphael Zernoff: What is success? What does it mean that someone is successful? Success can be different
America was founded on the principle of inalienable rights, not dictated duties. The Declaration of Independence states that every human being has a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It does not state that he is born a slave to the needs of others.Alex Epstein Being Dictated To Sayings By Alex Epstein: America was founded on the principle of inalienable rights, not dictated duties. The Declaration of
THIS law of nature, being co-eval with mankind and dictated by God himself, is of course superior in obligation to any other. It is binding over all the globe, in all countries, and at all times: no human laws are of any validity, if contrary to this; and such of them as are valid derive all their force, and all their authority, mediately or immediately, from this original.William Blackstone Being Dictated To Sayings By William Blackstone: THIS law of nature, being co-eval with mankind and dictated by God himself, is of
In one respect, I like the freedom of using all the people that I love instead of being dictated by the studio to use the hot person of the moment.Amy Heckerling Being Dictated To Sayings By Amy Heckerling: In one respect, I like the freedom of using all the people that I love
When you have somebody that's smart and you're not so smart, to me that's modern day slavery because you're being dictated to.Bernard Hopkins Being Dictated To Sayings By Bernard Hopkins: When you have somebody that's smart and you're not so smart, to me that's modern
Bipolar robs you of that which is you. It can take from you the very core of your being and replace it with something that is completely opposite of who and what you truly are. Because my bipolar went untreated for so long, I spent many years looking in the mirror and seeing a person I did not recognize or understand. Not only did bipolar rob me of my sanity, but it robbed me of my ability to see beyond the space it dictated me to look. I no longer could tell reality from fantasy, and I walked in a world no longer my own.Alyssa Reyans Being Dictated To Sayings By Alyssa Reyans: Bipolar robs you of that which is you. It can take from you the very
The thing about fashion - it's like ducks going quack, quack quack. It's being dictated from above, and it just makes me want to rebel against it.Sara Blakely Being Dictated To Sayings By Sara Blakely: The thing about fashion - it's like ducks going quack, quack quack. It's being dictated
