He was an open confuter of both Pope and King, the corrector of monks, the director of priests, the instructor of clerks, the supporter of scholars, a preacher to the people, a persecutor of the incontinent, the unwearied student of the Scriptures, a hammer and despiser of the Romans. At the table of bodily refreshment he was hospitable, eloquent, courteous, pleasant, and affable; at the spiritual table devout, tearful, and contrite. In the episcopal office he was sedulous , dignified, and indefatigable .
Notes on Recent Researches in Electricity and Magnetism , published in 1883, had won him enough acclaim at the age of twenty-seven that he was named director of the [Cavendish] laboratory the next year.j. j. thomson
What I do know is Theo is the kind of security genius that various state secret-service organizations would love to have on their side. If he were to waltz into the Department of Defense and promise to be a good boy, I think director of Central Intelligence George Tenet would probably jizz all over himself.theo de raadt
The best films are the best because of no one but the director.Roman Polanski
My sole inspiration is a telephone call from a director.Cole Porter
A director makes only one film in his life. Then he breaks it into pieces and makes it again.Jean Renoir
I have a final word of advice to our students. If you work very, very hard, this is the kind of actor, writer and director you may turn out to be, and if you work extra hard, this is the kind of person you may turn out to be.alan alda
...so unpopular, if he became a funeral director people would stop dyinglord stratford
Before you can steal fire from the Gods you gotta be able to get coffee for the director
People come up to me and say "Steve, what is film editing?" And I say "How should I know? You're the director."steve martin
... [Slave] trade … is the most shocking violation of the law of nature, has a direct tendency to diminish … liberty, and makes every dealer in it a tyrant, from the director of an African company to the petty chapman [peddler]…. It is a clear truth, that those who every day barter away other men's liberty will soon care little for their own.james otis
Twenty-one years between first and second films is longer than any director should have to wait. The case of Polonsky is one of the most dismal hangovers from the McCarthy period.abraham polonsky
I've had experiences before where a director is like, "Yeah, I wanted a blonde." Have you heard of hair dye?michelle trachtenberg
You get a script and you love it. You find a director that you trust, and it becomes all about how do I commit to this as fully as possible? And the last thing you can afford to have in your mind is what are other people going to think of this?james van der beek
The people who’ve done well within the [Hollywood] system are the people whose instincts, whose desires [are in natural alignement with those of the producers] — who want to make the kind of movies that producers want to produce. People who don’t succeed — people who’ve had long, bad times; like [Jean] Renoir, for example, who I think was the best director, ever — are the people who didn’t want to make the kind of pictures that producers want to make. Producers didn’t want to make a Renoir picture, even if it was a success.orson welles
[Referring to the radio station program director]: "I'll get him to call me some day, even if it means spilling cheese all over my brassiere at KFI, by gawd."april winchell
There was a great director who directed a picture that I wrote who barred me from the set quite appropriately and said, “I’m sorry, Jim. When you’re directing, you don’t need to know everything. You need the illusion that you do.” And, you know, and I WOULD be there behind him trying to signal the actors in, you know, in a way I wasn’t even aware of.james l. brooks
I had a hard time watching Wolf Creek. It is a film with one clear purpose: To establish the commercial credentials of its director by showing his skill at depicting the brutal tracking, torture and mutilation of screaming young women. When the killer severs the spine of one of his victims and calls her "a head on a stick," I wanted to walk out of the theater and keep on walking.roger ebert
I remember when hard-core first became commonplace, and there were discussions about what it would be like if a serious director ever made a porn movie. The answer, judging by Anatomy of Hell, is that the audience would decide they did not require such a serious director after all.roger ebert
When any president has to worry whether the deputy director of the FBI is sneaking around in dark corridors peddling information in the middle of the night, he's in trouble. There were times when I should have blown the whistle, so I understand his feelings. But I cannot approve of his methods.w. mark felt
The French East India Company (formed by Jean-Baptiste Colbert in 1666) established a settlement...in 1674 at Pondicherry. The company’s director, Francois Martin, made Pondicherry the capital of French posts.
When by habit a man cometh to have a bargaining soul, its wings are cut, so that it can never soar. It bindeth reason an apprentice to gain, and instead of a director, maketh it a drudge.
The clown company played by Atul Kumar, Kalki Koechlin, Sujay Saple, Neil Bhoopalam, Namit Das and Puja Sarup are outstanding in their role[s]. This is just outstanding casting by the director and The Company Theatre.
Another subpar growth in the year 2014 due to slow recovery, policy uncertainty and protectionism in developed countries. Asia-Pac developing economies face the prospect of a ‘new normal’ of lower growth in the coming years, underlining the need for forward-looking macroeconomic policies and intraregional cooperation. --Anisuzzaman Chowdhury, ESCAP director of Macroeconomic Policy and Development division when summarizing a report on Asia's Economy.
I can't remember ever feeling so glad that a movie was finally over. [director George] Lucas may have held my imagination hostage for two hours, but reclaiming it afterward wasn't hard at all.stephanie zacharek
Children of Men is a solemn, haunting picture, but it's also a thrilling one, partly because of the sheer bravado with which it's made. It left me feeling more fortified than drained. [director Alfonso] Cuarón, the most openhearted of directors, prefers to give rather than take away.stephanie zacharek
