I sing the hymn of the conquered, who fell in the battle of life, The hymn of the wounded, the beaten who died overwhelmed in the strife; Not the jubilant song of the victors for whom the resounding acclaim Of nations was lifted in chorus whose brows wore the chaplet of fame, But the hymn of the low and the humble, the weary, the broken in heart, Who strove and who failed, acting bravely a silent and desperate part.
It is acting inits purest form.You havetoact with youreyes.helena bonham carter
No passion so effectually robs the mind of all its powers of acting than fear. BurkeEdmund Burke
I think she's got a wonderful stillness in her performances, so that she never seems to be acting particularly. She just brought a terrific sense of tragedy to this part, a woman who has spent her life being so contained, with almost no ability to express herself.gillian anderson
If there ever was a case of clearer evidence than this of persons acting together, this case is that casewilliam arabin
Politics, when it is an art and a service, not an exploitation, is about acting for an ideal through realities.charles de gaulle
She is one of the most talented people that ever lived. I mean, either in stand-up comedy, or acting, or whatever you want, you can't beat Madeline Kahn.mel brooks
I wasn't driven to acting by any inner compulsion. I was running away from the sporting goods business.paul newman
There are multitudes in our congregations who are just waiting while they ought to be acting. They must work, if they would have God work in them. There can be no religion without obedience.ichabod spencer
This is faith, receiving the truth of Christ; first knowing it to be true, and then acting upon that belief.charles haddon spurgeon
The thing that I love about acting is the fact that I can help people feel things, know themselves or feel less alone. It's my form of expression, in the same way that someone might paint a picture or sing a song in that you're hoping that it moves somebody outside of their own way of thinking.naomi watts
Scientific discovery consists in the interpretation for our own convenience of a system of existence which has been made with no eye to our convenience at all.One of the chief duties of a mathematician in acting as an advisor to scientists is to discourage them from expecting too much of mathematicians.Norbert Wiener
I shall develop the thesis that anyone acting communicatively must, in performing any speech act, raise universal validity claims and suppose that they can be vindicated.jürgen habermas
Tears and fears and feeling proud, To say "I love you" right out loud, Dreams and schemes and circus crowds, I’ve looked at life that way. But now old friends are acting strange They shake their heads, they say I’ve changed Well something’s lost, but something’s gained In living ev’ry day.joni mitchell
My legal wife is to me dead; the only ecclesiastical authority I recognise pronounces me free; the attacks and threats of men do not disturb me. I am acting according to a clear conscience, and am doing hurt to no man. For my conduct, I will answer to my maker.william the silent
If we seek the liberation of the people by means of a lie , we will surely grow confused , go astray, and lose sight of our objective , and if we have any influence at all on the people we will lead them astray as well in other words , we will be acting in the spirit of reaction and to its benefit .
Christ does not save us by acting a parable of divine love; he acts the parable of divine love by saving us. That is the Christian faith.
No passion so effectually robs the mind of all its powers of acting and reasoning as fear.Edmund Burke
?Machines which do not receive their motion from heat... can be studied even to their smallest details by the mechanical theory. ...A similar theory is evidently needed for heat-engines. We shall have it only when the laws of Physics shall be extended enough, generalized enough, to make known beforehand all of the effects of heat acting in a determined manner on any body.
Enter Chanda, the multilingual call girl who can seduce in Hindi, Tamil, English and French. With her bee-stung lips, unusual face and refreshing lack of acting guile, Kalki Koechlin imbues the part with a touching fragility.
Hollywood no longer offers entertainment. Instead, activism has replaced acting, and sermons have supplanted stories. Instead of a good yarn, you get a yawn.
I had fresh confirmation that acting contrary to present outward interest, from a motive of Divine love and in regard to truth and righteousness, and thereby incurring the resentments of people, opens the way to a treasure better than silver, and to a friendship exceeding the friendship of men.
A complex adaptive system acquires information about its environment and its own interaction with that environment, identifying regularities in that information, condensing those regularities into a kind of "schema", or model, and acting in the real world on the basis of that schema.
Spy, give me zhe needle. You're acting crazy.
If you choose to represent the various parts in life by holes upon a table, of different shapes, some circular, some triangular, some square, some oblong, and the persons acting these parts by bits of wood of similar shapes, we shall generally find that the triangular person has got into the square hole, the oblong into the triangular, and a square person has squeezed himself into the round hole. The officer and the office, the doer and the thing done, seldom fit so exactly that we can say they were almost made for each other.sydney smith
acting is the expression of a neurotic impulse. It's a bum's life.Marlon Brando
acting doesn't bring anything to a text. On the contrary, it detracts from it.marguerite duras
acting is very competitive. There are few good scripts out there and the ones that are good are very competitive. You look at your options and often times they're not too appealing.matt dillon
