stay mad for very long. He’s a transactional guy. If you can offer him something, he will take it. Or from a salesman
‘s point of view, if he’s not making the sale, you’re of no use to him. But if you suddenly come back into the showroom
and are willing to buy, he’s willing to sell
I find it to be easier to write from a man’s point of view.

is my absolute hero from that point of view. I literally will pay to see anything he does because I know it’s going to be something different than I have already seen.
When I’m doing the Justice League
stuff, my point of view is always coming through Buddy

I’m not good at standing on platforms
people to my political point of view. Nor would I seek to. My gift is completely different. It’s for presenting an imaginative version
of the world which I hope people would recognize and be affected
I love scoring
. Putting music to picture is a rewarding
challenge and one that relies on interpretation of emotion – as in, what is the pivotal
feeling in a scene and which character’s point of view is driving
it at any given moment?
For me, the music is always speaking from the point of view of the characters. Rarely do you score
I kind of look at things from a very common-sense point of view.
At times, to make progress, you end up offending
people. And people were offended by many things I have done over the years. But I did what I felt was right, especially from an art and creative point of view.
I like tough relationships. I think relationships with conflict are good for you – you learn. But you can’t listen too much. I have a strong point of view, and it’s important that I fight for my ideas.
I always thought that Seth [Rogen] was a fun, caustic
, sweet, underdog-type of person that I would root
for the way you used to root for Bill Murray or John Candy
in “Stripes.” Seth had something that very few people
have: he had a writer’s mind and he had his own comic point of view.

that is true to a certain point of view than to take something and make people try to like it when they’re not supposed
You get Don King’s point of view in what is almost a Shakespearean, classical technique
. He comes across almost like a lovable rogue
, like Iago in ‘Othello’ or Richard
III. He’s doing all these bad things
, but I kind of like him. It’s like ‘Pulp
Fiction’: Everybody’s a bad guy
, yet you like them.
I’m quite drawn
to women artists who use themselves in their work. There is a very feminine point of view, the use of female archetypes
. I love artists who play with those kind of things genuinely.

and terrible threats
, even as there are limits

was a challenge.

What has ‘The Patchwork
Girl of Oz’ got in its favor? Quite a lot, from our point of view in 2009. If you want to see how Oz’s creator envisioned

In the end, the only heritage
we have is our planet

, because it is the only thing
I know how to do.

, from a selfish point of view, was exploration
and going to places that I had never been to before and learning, you know, meeting the people and getting to know, new sights

through which you peer
or ideas, as points of view, instruments
of criticism, may help us to gather
up what might otherwise pass unregarded by us.
I’m actually happier
with my body now . . . because the body I have now is the body I’ve worked for. I have a better relationship with it. From a purely aesthetic point of view, my body was better when I was 22, 23. But I didn’t enjoy it. I was too busy comparing
it to everyone else
to me? There are things, points of view, uses of the language, habits
, ways of thought and believing
that came to me from my grandparents and came to them from theirs. Things that are of good use in any situation, no matter what the future
When I listen to an American singer, I wanna listen to his music in his language, because he’s more spontaneous

The last issue I remember where a president was involved was in the capital punishment

I understood Stephen’s point of view because if you had been given a death sentence
at the age of 21, would you find it easy to believe in a loving God? Also, Stephen’s work was taking him into the depths

that there wasn’t much room for God in his equations
I focus on characters as individuals with attitudes
and write each scene from a particular character’s point of view. That way, even narrative passages

you are in your own thoughts. How vehemently do you argue your point of view? With what disdain
do you view the other’s point of view?

But I’ve never made anything big to me, from my point of view. “Big” like John Ford or someone of that kind. I say John Ford because he is my favorite
Three of my novels and a good number of my short stories
are told from the point of view of men. I was brought up in a house

We [Virgin Group] have been successful not by wasting time
scrutinising our competitors but by looking at ourselves from the point of view of our customers

This year  we’re seeing a really strange upending [of the party]. The money was coming from these super-wealthy donors

There is no neutral
ground when it comes to the tolerance

, too, even people who consider themselves relativists.
I’m just coming from a more personal – and, I guess, more nostalgic
– point of view.
My point of view comes more from the literature I’ve read and the comedy of the era. When I was a kid, coming across National Lampoon

. I suddenly felt like there were other people that felt the way I did, and there was a way of expressing
And I used to assemble
the family to hear because I thought that they were so good that even from the point of view of enjoyment

When you read about the real history of where feminism
comes from, it came from a very political point of view. I don’t believe
in bringing any politics to an idea like feminism. I love the idea that women should be celebrated

There’s always something extremely personal in the songs, but I may change the point of view from what I actually experienced.
I think the harsh reviews
helped, in that I spent way more energy in the preproduction and development. From this point of view, I’m very thankful
for the harsh critics. I still think the critics were unnecessarily insulting
in a lot of things, but I think it helped.
From my point of view, I am the underdog going into this fight. I’m not saying I’m not. But I’m the underdog because I haven’t fought
at that level yet against anyone of Canelo’s level.

my message in the right way
so that what I’m telling them ends up getting translated
out on the pitch.
Movies and TV are America’s No. 1 export
. So if our No. 1 export is all male, all white, then there’s only one point of view. And I just think it’s really important that as Americans – I’m a new American, but I am an American – that we don’t portray
ourselves to the world so one-sided

between. It is possible for one side simply to be wrong.
When you make a war movie
, the other side has to be the enemy. You’re making a war movie from the point of view of a soldier
I don’t understand the whole concept of doubles
. They used to do that in the early sound films in Hollywood, but I thought we had gotten rid of that. Now not only do you have doubles, but as in Flashdance, you have triples, quadruples. From my point of view it is bad for the art.
Radical historians now the tell the story of Thanksgiving from the point of view of the turkey.
My life in Hollywood surrounded by celebrities

From a purely ethnological point of view, I was not a period-born Dada.
Reality is just a point of view.
As an actor, you can’t play a flashback

The way that you eliminate bad and ugly is either through activism
and policy making
that never tolerates evil — instead of the liberal politically
correct policy of accepting evil and accepting other points of views that destroy
lives. We the thoughtful
, productive people of American have got to take our freedom back.
No one, at any rate no English writer, has written better about childhood
. In spite of all the knowledge that has accumulated since, in spite of the fact that children are now comparatively sanely treated
, no novelist has shown
the same power of entering
into the child’s point of view.
As an actor, I started using dreams more, which is not mystical
or anything like that. I just found that I’ve been using that as a tool to give me
another point of view towards the work. It’s often surprising
but really helpful.
You will survive anything if you live your life from the point of view of truth.
Of all the mediums
that influence language, I think film is the one that has the most effect. Not so much from the point of view of pronunciation
. I don’t think we pick up very many sounds and grammatical instructions
from the films we see – but the catchphrases.
I will continue to look for opportunities to tell stories that speak to a fresh generational, topical
point of view.
When you have a fresh point of view that comes from the right side
of the heart, it’s just so valuable. You can take it or not take it, but just that perspective can give you a lot of strength
or make you reflect
on a lot of things.
Information, if viewed from the point of view of food, is never a production issue. … It’s a consumption
issue, and we have to start thinking about how we create diets
I don’t think my voice has changed very much when it comes to things that I create. It’s just my perspective, my point of view, and I guess that really hasn’t changed very much. Luckily
, it hasn’t had to change in order for me to work.
You don’t need to be partisan. CNN does need to stick to a nonpartisan point of view. That doesn’t mean there can’t be more passion and excitement

that the rest of us do.
