Charlie Chaplin and I would have a friendly contest: Who could do the feature film with the least subtitles?
The only way it would work for me is if it was a full-length feature film directed by Joss Whedon or Tim Minear or David Greenwalt.david boreanaz
I'd be surprised if Ronald Reagan doesn't run again. To us it's a second term. To him it's a double feature.robert orben
Shakespeare ’s plays feature many soliloquies, some of which are his most famous passages. Perhaps the most famous is Hamlet ’s ‘to be or not to be’ soliloquy, where Hamlet contemplates suicide . The audience is taken through his thought processes, where he balances the pros and cons of ending his life – an all time classic soliloquy.No Sweat Shakespeare, in "Definition of Monologues & Soliloquies In Shakespeare".
I'm gonna miss your face. Your... beautiful face. Every feature an' facet an' bump an' [groans] G'byeWho: David "Walky" Walkerton
The economy - once a great scatter of small productive units in autonomous balance, has become dominated by two or three hundred giant corporations, administratively and politically interrelated… The political order, once a decentralized set of several dozen states with a weak spinal cord, has become a centralized executive establishment which has taken up into itself many powers previously scattered… The military order, once a slim establishment in a context of distrust fed by state militia, has become the largest and most expensive feature of government.c. wright mills
The intention of the US found its feature through a clear formulation in the Agreement for the IBRD. The “purposes of the Bank” were defined as follows: “To promote private foreign investment by means of guarantees or participations in loans and other investments made by private investors; and when private capital is not available on reasonable terms, to supplement private investments by providing, on suitable conditions, finance for productive purposes out of its own capital, funds raised by it and its other resources”Nico Perrone The international economy from a political to an authoritative drive p. 130
The desire to take medicine is perhaps the greatest feature which distinguishes man from animals.Quoted in H Cushing Life of Sir William Osler (1925), vol.1, ch.14.
When we first began, Ruth told us she had never written a screenplay. That was not a problem since I had never produced a feature film and Jim had never directed one.ismail merchant
What more felicitie can fall to creatureThan to enjoy delight with libertie,And to be lord of all the workes of Nature,To raine in th' aire from earth to highest skie,To feed on flowres and weeds of glorious feature.Edmund Spenser
Competition-ruthless, unforgiving, to-the-death competition-is a crucial feature of capitalism.jim stanford
The fictitious deities of all races in all worlds once more crowded themselves upon me, symbols of majesty and tenderness, of ruthless power, of blind creativity, and of all-seeing wisdom. And though these images were but the fantasies of created minds, it seemed to me that one and all did indeed embody some true feature of the Star Maker's impact upon the creatures.Olaf Stapledon
Organisms [...] are directed and limited by their past. They must remain imperfect in their form and function, and to that extent unpredictable since they are not optimal machines. We cannot know their future with certainty, if only because a myriad of quirky functional shifts lie within the capacity of any feature, however well adapted to a present role.stephen jay gould
All life on earth - everything from bacteria to mushrooms to hippos - shares an astonishing range of detailed biochemical similarities, including the structure of heredity in DNA and RNA , and the universal use of ATP as an energy-storing compound. Two possible scenarios, with markedly different implications for the nature of life, might explain these regularities: either all earthly life shares these features because no other chemistry can work, or these similarities only record the common descent of all organisms on earth from a single origin that happened to feature this chemistry as one possibility among many.stephen jay gould
The film begins with a visual list of eight and a half Japanese Pachinko Parlours filmed in several Japanese cities -- Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto. These buildings are just right for the excesses of post-modernism -- decorative, frivolous -- serving to obviously excite and attract -- every feature using the architectural vocabulary freely without too much regard for serious function -- open glass atriums and shining metals and expensive and artificial marbles, zany letterings and excess neon. "Then I think you have a choice -- please your mother or face criminal charges." "To a man of honour that is no choice."Peter Greenaway
The next simplest feature that is common to all that comes before the mind, and consequently, the second category, is the element of Struggle.charles sanders peirce
Metaphor... is, as a common feature of linguistic practice, an incidental expediency, a homely administering of first-aid by mother-wit to jams or halts in expression suddenly confronting speakers, with no respectable linguistic solution immediately in sight.laura riding
Er, Tom, I hate to be the one to point this out, but your fix list is starting to resemble a feature list. You must be human or something.larry wall
He is complete in feature, and in mind, With all good grace to grace a gentleman.william shakespeare
A critical feature of the EU(European Union) in general and EMU in particular is that there is no legitimate way for a member to withdraw... The American experience with the secession of the South may contain some lessons about the danger of a treaty or constitution that has no exits.Martin Feldstein, "EMU and international conflict", Foreign Affairs, vol. 76, n. 6, p. 72, November/December 1997
Production for sale in a market in which the object is to realize the maximum profit is the essential feature of a capitalist world-economy. In such a system production is constantly expanded as long as further production is profitable, and men constantly innovate new ways of producing things that will expand the profit margin.Immanuel Wallerstein (1979) The Capitalist World-Economy. p. 15
Fraternities and the fraternity system are a distinctive and praiseworthy feature of American college life. Both as a fraternity man and as an educator, I firmly believe in the value of fraternities when they are properly managed and under good leadership.Dr. Walter C. Langsam; Former President, University of Cincinnati (p. 11)
Beautiful in form and feature, lovely as the day. Can there be so fair a creature formed of common clay?Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
There's nothing bright above, below, From flowers that bloom, to stars that glow, But in its light my soul can see Some feature of Thy Deity.Thomas Moore, p. 429 (Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895))
