Mann's Sayings By Charles C. Mann: Our visit to Calakmul did nothing to suggest that Folan's advice was wrong. Trees enveloped Our visit to Calakmul did nothing to suggest that Folan's advice was wrong. Trees enveloped the great buildings, their roots slowly ripping apart the soft limestone walls. Peter photographed a monument with roots coiled around it, boa constrictor style, five or six feet high. So overwhelming was the tropical forest that I thought Calakmul's history would remain forever unknown. — Charles C. Mann

Mann's Sayings By Michael Mann: Suffice it to say, every actor works differently. Laurence Olivier would put on his costume Suffice it to say, every actor works differently.

Mann's Sayings By Philip Kitcher: Sometime during the 1990s, when I was teaching philosophy at UCSD, my friend, colleague, and Sometime during the 1990s, when I was teaching philosophy at UCSD, my friend, colleague, and music teacher, Carol Plantamura, discussed the possibility of teaching a course together looking at ways in which various literary works (plays, stories, novels) had been treated as operas, and how different themes emerged in the opera and in its original. One of the pairings we planned to use was Mann's great novella and Britten's opera. Unfortunately, the course was never taught, but the idea remained with me. — Philip Kitcher

Schenback was inclined to Or was he merely a mollycoddled favorite, enjoying capriciously prejudiced love? Schenback was inclined to believe the latter.

Mann's Sayings By Michael Crichton: Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. In Murray's case, physics. In mine, show business. You read the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, the article is so wrong it actually presents the story backward - reversing cause and effect. I call these the "wet streets cause rain" stories. Paper's full of them.
In any case, you read with exasperation or amusement the multiple errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just read. You turn the page, and forget what you know. — Michael Crichton
Mann's Sayings By Michael Mann: There's a tired notion that the photojournalist has to be disengaged to be able to There's a tired notion that the photojournalist has to be disengaged to be able to shoot what he shoots, and that's such a cliched idea of what the experience is. Of course they're engaged, and they're not distanced. — Michael Mann
Mann's Sayings By Sally Mann: It's a touchy subject, but as a Southerner, you can't ignore our history any more It's a touchy subject, but as a Southerner, you can't ignore our history any more than a Renaissance painter can ignore the Virgin Mary.

Mann's Sayings By Lauren Miller: They didn't give you a glass for that?" I ask, nodding at the soda can They didn't give you a glass for that?" I ask, nodding at the soda can as I shake his hand. The old man laughs.

Mann's Sayings By Thomas Mann: The little hand on time's clock trips away as though measuring seconds; but God knows The little hand on time's clock trips away as though measuring seconds; but God knows how much time it is covering when it whisks round heedless of the divisions it passes over! So much is certain, that we have been up here for years. Our brains reel, surely this is an evil dream, though dreamed with nor hashish nor opium; a censor of morals would rebuke us for it. — Thomas Mann
Mann's Sayings By Aimee Mann: It's in the dictionary. And when I find what it is, I'll write it down It's in the dictionary. And when I find what it is, I'll write it down in case it comes up again, I'll be certain to avoid it. — Aimee Mann
Mann's Sayings By Philip Kitcher: The variety within Mann's fiction is impressive and fascinating. But Joyce is even more various The variety within Mann's fiction is impressive and fascinating.

My father is a college professor and that's about the extent of my college experience. I'm sort of a professional student forever.

Mann's Sayings By Edward Frenkel: It turned out that Evgeny Evgenievich indeed had a clever plan how to convert me It turned out that Evgeny Evgenievich indeed had a clever plan how to convert me to math.

"Yes, I've read about this in several popular books." "But do you know what was the basis for this model? How did he come up with these ideas?" "Well ... " "Have you heard about the group SU(3)?" "SU what?" "How can you possibly understand the quark model if you don't know what the group SU(3) is? — Edward Frenkel
Mann's Sayings By Barry Mann: There's so much fear involved in trying to do something you don't know how to There's so much fear involved in trying to do something you don't know how to do that drugs and alcohol can become a big part of your life if you have an addictive personality or are very unsure, which most songwriters are. — Barry Mann

Mann's Sayings By Murray Gell-Mann: Perhaps we see equations as simple because they are easily expressed in terms of mathematical Perhaps we see equations as simple because they are easily expressed in terms of mathematical notation already invented at an earlier stage of development of the science, and thus what appears to us as elegance of description really reflects the interconnectedness of Nature's laws at different levels. — Murray Gell-Mann

Mann's Sayings By Brian Greene: According to string theory, if we could examine these particles with even greater precision - According to string theory, if we could examine these particles with even greater precision - a precision many orders of magnitude beyond our present technological capacity - we would find that each is not pointlike, but instead consists of a tiny one-dimensional loop. Like an infinitely thin rubber band, each particle contains a vibrating, oscillating, dancing filament that physicists, lacking Gell-Mann's literary flair, have named a string. — Brian Greene

Mann's Sayings By Philip Kitcher: Wilhelmine Germany was hostile to the expression of same-sex love - and, of course, Mann Wilhelmine Germany was hostile to the expression of same-sex love - and, of course, Mann would have known of the fate of Oscar Wilde. His early reading of Platen's poetry, and, probably when he was in his early twenties, of Platen's diaries, introduced him to a form of sexual expression he found profoundly congenial. It's not quite Platonic. — Philip Kitcher
Mann's Sayings By Thomas Mann: It's a craving that shouldn't even exist, and yet you can't wish it didn't exist. It's a craving that shouldn't even exist, and yet you can't wish it didn't exist. Once it has hold of you, you can't wish it away, because you'd have to wish your life away, it's so bound up with it, and you can't do that - what good would dying do? Afterward - with pleasure. In her arms - only too gladly. But before? That's nonsense, because life is desire, and desire is life, and life can't be its own enemy. — Thomas Mann
Mann's Sayings By Martin Scorsese: I was rather shaken by all the green trees. I always am. It gets me. I was rather shaken by all the green trees. I always am. It gets me. I don't want to be funny about it but I am. I loved seeing all the westerns, but I had asthma and couldn't go anywhere, but I loved watching them in Technicolor and seeing the cowboys and the landscapes of Monument Valley and you'd see the forests of the Anthony Mann films and think, 'wow, that's fantastic', but I could never go there! — Martin Scorsese
Mann's Sayings By Sally Mann: If I could be said to have any kind of aesthetic, it's sort of a If I could be said to have any kind of aesthetic, it's sort of a magpie aesthetic - I just go and pick up whatever is around. If you think about it, the children were there, so I took pictures of my children. It's not that I'm interested in children that much or photographing them - it's just that they were there ... — Sally Mann
Mann's Sayings By Gabriel Mann: Maybe that's partly why I'm an actor, I'm a fairly empathetic, emotional person, so I Maybe that's partly why I'm an actor, I'm a fairly empathetic, emotional person, so I get very, very involved when it's really, really great when I'm watching - so it takes me a second to click back into reality again. — Gabriel Mann
Mann's Sayings By Philip Kitcher: Read Mann's notes, which contain precise accounts of cholera and its symptoms, and observe how Read Mann's notes, which contain precise accounts of cholera and its symptoms, and observe how careful he is throughout his fiction in getting medical details straight - then you might begin to wonder whether cholera is the only candidate for the cause of Aschenbach's death. What results from this, I think, is a deeper appreciation of Mann's brilliance in keeping so many possibilities in play. The ambiguity is even more artful than people have realized. — Philip Kitcher
Mann's Sayings By Thomas Mann: The only religious way in which to regard death is to perceive and reel it The only religious way in which to regard death is to perceive and reel it as a constituent part of life, as life's holy prerequisite, and not to separate it intellectually, to set it up in opposition to life, or, worse, to play it off against life in some disgusting fashion
for that is indeed the antithesis of a healthy, noble, reasonable, and religious view. The ancients decorated their sarcophagi with symbols of life and procreation, some of them even obscene. For the ancients, in fact, the sacred and the obscene were very often one and the same. Those people knew how to honor death. Death is to be honored as the cradle of life, the womb of renewal. Once separated from life, it becomes grotesque, a wraith
or even worse. For as an independent spiritual power, death is a very depraved force, whose wicked attractions are very strong and without doubt can cause the most abominable confusion of the human mind. — Thomas Mann
Mann's Sayings By Leslie Mann: Women do not like CDs of live music. We only like the original recordings. If Women do not like CDs of live music. We only like the original recordings. If a song sounds different from the version we fell in love with, then it's awful. — Leslie Mann
Mann's Sayings By Thomas Mann: One always needs to be reminded; one is by no means always in possession of One always needs to be reminded; one is by no means always in possession of one's whole self. Our consciousness is feeble; only in moments of unusual clarity and vision do we really know about ourselves. — Thomas Mann
Mann's Sayings By Leslie Mann: I was teased relentlessly when I was a kid about my voice, so it's kind I was teased relentlessly when I was a kid about my voice, so it's kind of nice that now I'm making a lot of money with it. — Leslie Mann

Mann's Sayings By Michael Mann: I realized horses have personality when I bought one and I had one, who's now I realized horses have personality when I bought one and I had one, who's now out to pasture, a horse named Drifter.

Dogs, I knew, had personalities, but not horses. — Michael Mann
Mann's Sayings By Thomas Mann: ... But sometimes a person begins with opinions and judgments and valid criticisms, but then ... But sometimes a person begins with opinions and judgments and valid criticisms, but then things creep in that have nothing to do with forming opinions, and then it's all over with strict logic, and what you end up with is an absurd world republic and beautiful style. — Thomas Mann

Mann's Sayings By Philip Kitcher: I think the tone of mockery Heller finds is a part of Mann's irony, but I think the tone of mockery Heller finds is a part of Mann's irony, but only a part - a brilliant further touch consists in juxtaposing perspectives so that we're led to wonder whether the mockery itself is the last word. — Philip Kitcher
Mann's Sayings By Thomas E. Mann: I will keep faith with death in my heart ... For the sake of goodness, I will keep faith with death in my heart ... For the sake of goodness, for the sake of love, Let no man's heart be ruled by death ... The only religious way to think of death is as part and parcel of life; to regard it, with the understanding and the .emotions, as the inviolable condition of life. — Thomas E. Mann

"And I love that I can give away my books after I've read them. Think of the first edition of The Magic Mountain I'm giving Nico. It was printed along with the first copy that went to Mann himself. It's got a history. — Will Schwalbe
Mann's Sayings By Michael E. Mann: Keith's [Briffa] series ... differs in large part in exactly the opposite direction that Phil's Keith's [Briffa] series ... differs in large part in exactly the opposite direction that Phil's [Jones] does from ours. This is the problem we all picked up on (everyone in the room at IPCC was in agreement that this was a problem and a potential distraction/detraction from the reasonably consensus viewpoint we'd like to show w/ the Jones et al and Mann et al series). — Michael E. Mann
Mann's Sayings By Thomas Mann: Hidden away amongst Aschenbach's writing was a passage directly asserting that nearly all the great Hidden away amongst Aschenbach's writing was a passage directly asserting that nearly all the great things that exist owe their existence to a defiant despite: it is despite grief and anguish, despite poverty, loneliness, bodily weakness, vice and passion and a thousand inhibitions, that they have come into being at all. But this was more than an observation, it was an experience, it was positively the formula of his life and his fame, the key to his work. — Thomas Mann
Mann's Sayings By Michael Mann: I don't story board. I do something else, which is, I block it. We then I don't story board. I do something else, which is, I block it. We then train to the blocking. In other words, when everybody's training, they're actually training a lot of the moves that we are definitely going to use, and then, I do a lot of photography of that, and that becomes where the cameras go. — Michael Mann
Mann's Sayings By Gabriel Mann: I know when I watch a film at this point, if I completely lose myself I know when I watch a film at this point, if I completely lose myself in the characters and the story and the world of the film I know that it's at least in my opinion, that was great. Otherwise I'm thinking: "Oh I know they were just doing A, B and C, right before they walked into the scene, then the camera was there, then they probably took the shot from this reverse close-up and moved it into this." When all of that drops away then I'm like: "Okay this was phenomenal, this was fantastic." I mean, any film or TV performance in general is probably good. — Gabriel Mann
Mann's Sayings By Leslie Mann: It's always fun to think about winning an award. I thought about winning awards when It's always fun to think about winning an award. I thought about winning awards when I was a little girl. Everybody wants to win an award for something. — Leslie Mann

Mann's Sayings By Michael Mann: What I try to do - I mean 'try,' because you don't get there all What I try to do - I mean 'try,' because you don't get there all the time - is to have impact with content.

Lose your complacency, once betray your own self-contempt and the world will unhesitatingly endorse it. — Thomas Mann
Mann's Sayings By Philip Kitcher: To my mind, Death in Venice represents an enormous advance in Mann's literary development, not To my mind, Death in Venice represents an enormous advance in Mann's literary development, not simply for the commonly appreciated reason that he crafted a superbly supple and elegant style, apparently well suited to the kind of prose Aschenbach is supposed to write. — Philip Kitcher

Mann's Sayings By Michael Mann: HBO is not an advertiser-based model, it's a subscription model. So what's significant to HBO HBO is not an advertiser-based model, it's a subscription model. So what's significant to HBO is not necessarily the debut of an episode, it's the cumulative numbers. — Michael Mann
Mann's Sayings By Vladimir Nabokov: Ever since the days when such formidable mediocrities as Galsworthy, Dreiser, Tagore, Maxim Gorky, Romain Ever since the days when such formidable mediocrities as Galsworthy, Dreiser, Tagore, Maxim Gorky, Romain Rolland and Thomas Mann were being accepted as geniuses, I have been perplexed and amused by fabricated notions about so-called "great books." That, for instance, Mann's asinine "Death in Venice," or Pasternak's melodramatic, vilely written "Dr. Zhivago," or Faulkner's corn-cobby chronicles can be considered "masterpieces" or at least what journalists term "great books," is to me the sort of absurd delusion as when a hypnotized person makes love to a chair. My greatest masterpieces of twentieth century prose are, in this order: Joyce's "Ulysses"; Kafka's "Transformation"; Bely's "St. Petersburg," and the first half of Proust's fairy tale, "In Search of Lost Time. — Vladimir Nabokov
Mann's Sayings By Philip Kitcher: I suggest in my own discussion of this episode, Mann invites us to set the I suggest in my own discussion of this episode, Mann invites us to set the attempt to philosophize about his predicament in the context of Aschenbach's life. The literary presentation thus adds to the naked philosophical skeleton. — Philip Kitcher
Mann's Sayings By Michael Mann: Blu-ray and the technologies emerging around it are the premiere format for reproducing what we Blu-ray and the technologies emerging around it are the premiere format for reproducing what we do as filmmakers. There's more space on the disc, more bit rate. — Michael Mann

That's the important thing. The other stuff you want to say about it, I don't care. — Aimee Mann
Mann's Sayings By Thomas Mann: Thomas Buddenbrook's existence was no different from that of an actor - an actor whose Thomas Buddenbrook's existence was no different from that of an actor - an actor whose lfe has become one long production, which but for a few hours for relaxation, consumes him unceasingly. — Thomas Mann
Mann's Sayings By Randall Mann: Some reviewers have read this as cynicism but I don't see it that way. When Some reviewers have read this as cynicism but I don't see it that way. When I say "I am so sick / of pretending to be me," it's exhaustion at the everyday performance, in life, in art, even in our most intimate encounters. — Randall Mann
Mann's Sayings By Aimee Mann: It's funny, because my last record was a lot about isolation and people living in It's funny, because my last record was a lot about isolation and people living in separate worlds that other people can't even understand, which drug addiction is the perfect negative example of. — Aimee Mann
Mann's Sayings By Thomas E. Mann: Today's Republican Party ... is an insurgent outlier. It has become ideologically extreme; contemptuous of Today's Republican Party ... is an insurgent outlier. It has become ideologically extreme; contemptuous of the inherited social and economic policy regime; scornful of compromise; unpersuaded by conventional understanding of facts, evidence, and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition, all but declaring war on the government. The Democratic Party, while no paragon of civic virtue, is more ideologically centered and diverse, protective of the government's role as it developed over the course of the last century, open to incremental changes in policy fashioned through bargaining with the Republicans, and less disposed to or adept at take-no-prisoners conflict between the parties. This asymmetry between the parties, which journalists and scholars often brush aside or whitewash in a quest for "balance," constitutes a huge obstacle to effective governance. — Thomas E. Mann
Mann's Sayings By Philip Kitcher: Mann is widely recognized as a master of irony and ambiguity, yet it's remarkable how Mann is widely recognized as a master of irony and ambiguity, yet it's remarkable how quickly people foreclose options he carefully leaves open. Lots of readers - including eminent critics - jump to conclusions: that Nietzsche's Birth of Tragedy is a central background text, that Aschenbach is an inferior writer, that he's never been attracted by pubescent male beauty before, that he dies of cholera. — Philip Kitcher
Mann's Sayings By Marlene Van Niekerk: Read non-fiction. History, biology, entomology, mineralogy, paleontology. Get a bodyguard and do fieldwork. Find your Read non-fiction. History, biology, entomology, mineralogy, paleontology. Get a bodyguard and do fieldwork. Find your inner fish. Don't publish too soon. Not before you have read Thomas Mann in any case. Learn by copying, sentence by sentence some of the masters. Copy Coetzee's or Sebald's sentences and see what happens to your story. Consider creative non-fiction if you want to stay in South Africa. It might be the way to go. Never neglect back and hamstring exercises, otherwise you won't be able to write your novel. One needs one's buttocks to think. — Marlene Van Niekerk
Mann's Sayings By Philip Kitcher: Conclude, what Thomas Mann really wanted was a limited physical relationship with beautiful young men: Conclude, what Thomas Mann really wanted was a limited physical relationship with beautiful young men: the opportunity to gaze at them, an occasional touch, a restrained kiss. That isn't a surrogate for what he'd like to have if he were somehow free from social constraints. It's what the young Platen wanted, it's what he wanted - and it's what his Aschenbach wants. — Philip Kitcher
Mann's Sayings By Sally Mann: There's always a time in any series of work where you get to a certain There's always a time in any series of work where you get to a certain point and your work is going steadily and each picture is better than the next, and then you sort of level off and that's when you realize that it's not that each picture is better then the next, it's that each picture up's the ante. And that every time you take one good picture, the next one has got to be better. — Sally Mann
Mann's Sayings By Will Schwalbe: MOM LIKED THE Ritalin. And she found it had a terrific and unexpected side effect MOM LIKED THE Ritalin. And she found it had a terrific and unexpected side effect - it helped her read. The day she first tried it, she was tired and uncomfortable and having trouble concentrating. She popped the Ritalin right before she sat down with Thomas Mann's Joseph and His Brothers, a fifteen-hundred-page book that she'd been attempting to read after a friend gave it to her. — Will Schwalbe
Mann's Sayings By Charles C. Mann: A smartphone links patients' bodies and doctors' computers, which in turn are connected to the A smartphone links patients' bodies and doctors' computers, which in turn are connected to the Internet, which in turn is connected to any smartphone anywhere. The new devices could put the management of an individual's internal organs in the hands of every hacker, online scammer, and digital vandal on Earth. — Charles C. Mann
Mann's Sayings By Thomas Mann: It is most certainly a good thing that the world knows only the beautiful opus It is most certainly a good thing that the world knows only the beautiful opus but not its origins, not the conditions of its creation; for if people knew the sources of the artist's inspiration, that knowledge would often confuse them, alarm them, and thereby destroy the effects of excellence. strange hours! strangely enervating labor! bizarrely fertile intercourse of the mind with a body! — Thomas Mann
Mann's Sayings By Aimee Mann: I certainly understand that we're all trying to make a living, but I'm not thinking I certainly understand that we're all trying to make a living, but I'm not thinking about that when I'm making it. And if that's your sole motivation, it's going to reflect that narcissistic greed, and you're going to hear it in the music. — Aimee Mann
Mann's Sayings By Gabriel Mann: One thing I loved about New Zealand was the indoor/outdoor lifestyle of the place. I One thing I loved about New Zealand was the indoor/outdoor lifestyle of the place. I remember going from Xboxing, jamming out on guitars and drum machines in my buddy's apartment, to a bike ride through the parks and up and down the streets all over the city, to the ocean, right into the water. I remember we were swimming outer ways and we got to a certain place where we wanted to see - or I wanted to see - how deep the water was. — Gabriel Mann

Mann's Sayings By Jen Mann: Besides shopping at garage sales, I love hosting garage sales. Every year my mom and Besides shopping at garage sales, I love hosting garage sales. Every year my mom and I dig through our houses and find a bunch of crap (I mean really terrific stuff) to sell so we can earn some money so we can go back out and buy some more crap (I mean really terrific stuff) that we'll use for a bit and then turn around and garage-sale in a couple of years. It's the circle of life suburban style. — Jen Mann
