I think that if you’re on the same team, you should be pushing in the same direction.
The artist who gave me the most inspiration and direction, especially as a singer – and I absolutely consider myself a singer, 100 percent – is Nina Simone. She’s my ultimate pianist-singer-type person.

Now all oscillatory movements of such an electron can be conceived of as being split up into force, and two circular oscillations perpendicular to this direction rotating in opposite directions.

It was Vikram Bhatt and ‘Raaz’ that got me interested in the medium of cinema. Before that, I was like any other youngster dabbling with various things – modelling, films – without a definite direction or focus. Now that I’m working with all of them, life has come full circle for me.

Stupidity, outrage, vanity, cruelty, iniquity, bad faith, falsehood – we fail to see the whole array when it is facing in the same direction as we.

I kind of had my life planned out for me. I’d be married at some point, have, you know, 1.5 children, and be a principal possibly one day. But I think that that was kind of my problem. I allowed myself to plan out my life and didn’t let provident direction guide my life.

I always think that trying to push yourself as an actor in a direction that you’ve never been before, developing characters which are more difficult to get into the head of, or are more interesting and further away from yourself, is always a challenge.

If there is any message in the ‘Wimpy Kid’ books, it is that reading can be and should be fun.

I’m writing for entertainment, not to impress literary judges.

I have a really terrible sense of direction.
On the ‘Tom and Jerry’s,’ Joe and I would sit across a desk from each other and develop the story. Joe would do the storyboard and I’d do the timing and the direction of the animation.

I love improvisation. You can’t blame it on the writers. You can’t blame it on direction. You can’t blame it on the camera guy… It’s you. You’re on. You’ve got to do it, and you either sink or swim with what you’ve got.
When all the performances are excellent, critics understand it’s the direction.
I go to universities to talk to the students and teach them how to watch movies. Movies have so many elements – acting, music, art direction, costumes. I also tell them not to watch pirated movies. At the cinema, they can enjoy the big screen and the surround sound.
I enjoy scenes in films, which do not have the pressure of the story so much… and it flows. I’ve tried to go in that direction.

I was born in 1949, and by the time I was 10, I figured out that my hope chest was not aimed in the same direction everybody else’s was. And that life was going to be very, very complicated. And that I could either be provocative and declamatory, or shy, retiring and scared.

People think SEALs are cold-blooded, heartless, wound-up, brainwashed killers. They imagine you can just point a SEAL in a direction and say, ‘Go kill.’ The truth is you’re talking about a bunch of kind-hearted, jovial guys. The only thing that separates them is mental toughness.
Back then, we could drive a mile from home and there was nothing. Now it’s grown in every direction and is populated and modernized. I guess I have mixed feelings about it, but I’m not someone that thinks everything should stop growing.
I like to call it the scalar boson because this reflects an essential component of the theory – it means that the field the boson travels through has no preferred direction, unlike the way a magnetic field does.

If I want to do an orchestral record, if I want to do an acoustic record, if I want to do a death-metal record, if I want to do a jazz record – I can move in whichever direction I want, and no one is going to get upset about that. Except maybe my manager and my record company.
For me, everything is still possible and I am as determined as ever. I believe first that the project of a people does not die. It is the project of freedom for a people, it is a project of sovereignty. And since the nation exists, it has the right to its own state. I will work to advance it in that direction.
I want to write without shame or pride or over-compensation in one direction or another. To write freely.
I get a kick out of watching a team defense me. A player moves two steps in one direction and I hit it two steps the other way. It goes right by his glove and I laugh.
When you are a child, your father is God to you. Then, as you grow up, you have different gods. You change. But does it really matter?

When I turned 15, I left school having failed to make the minimum grade. With little direction I enlisted at the local culinary school. Here the academic demands were less rigorous.
