I think, with the S.H.I.E.L.D. 2.0, you’re seeing some of the first ripples of those different points of view on what S.H.I.E.L.D. should be when it’s rebuilt. I’m very, very curious to know which side Coulson will end up on in that struggle.
My mind was by no means easy about the need to carry out a clandestine action in the sovereign territory of a friendly country, and the question of whether it was permissible to do so — from both the ethical and political points of view — had to be faced in all its gravity.
Isser Harel
From a mental point of view, as I’ve had to rebuild my life from zero, it has been crucial I’ve never given up, that I’ve set achievable targets, not things that couldn’t possibly be achieved.
It absolutely helped – to write the father in both ‘Juicy‘ and ‘Beasts,’ I had to see the whole story from his point of view. All of a sudden I understood more of what my own father must be going through – the fear, the frustration, the anger… the hope that he’ll leave a legacy.
For the finale, I thought the audience deserved to get a close point of view on the monster, and to recognize him the way you recognize the heroes of ‘True Detective.’

Thanksgiving dinner‘s sad and thankless. Christmas dinner’s dark and blue. When you stop and try to see it From the turkey‘s point of view.

A new language always reflects a new point of view, and the gradual unconscious popularization of new words, or of old words used in new ways, is a sure sign of a profound change in people’s articulation of the world.
I think we are constantly asked day in and day out to find the things that we find frustrating or inspiring or that we’re passionate about, and attack it from that angle. I don’t like being lumped into the idea of being media, or liberal media for that point of view. I am not trained as a journalist.
Any social or cultural change has to be made openly and with people agreeing. You don’t get there by just pushing an outsider’s point of view.

Because of my age and because there’s more work on the small screen. What it’s missing in quality it makes up for in quantity. From an actor’s selfish point of view.
It’s the honest point of view of an artist: You have to please.I’d like viewers to come away from my films unsure whether they’ve understood them. I want to leave them wondering.
Jean-Pierre Melville

Being very, very honest, I’ve watched more Bill Clinton speeches than stand-up specials. Steve Jobs commencements. They’re just great orators. I love people who boldly share their point of view.
The world isn’t all happy, shiny people, and great art doesn’t come from vanilla. Great art comes from people with a point of view and are very passionate.
For ninety per cent of those who view him from outside, the Christian God looks like a great landowner administering his estates, the world. Now this conventional picture, which is too well justified by appearances, corresponds in no way to the dogmatic basis or point of view of the Gospels.

Some people have got a mental horizon of radius zero and call it their point of view.
‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith‘ – every scene is from those characters’ point of view. They’re in literally every scene, very unusual in a big studio film.
From the point of view of the species, death is part of this whole process. You could say that species have evolved in such a way that individual members last a certain time. Perhaps a certain kind of species would be better able to survive if the individuals didn’t last too long. Other kinds could last longer.
I was fascinated by a compelling character embroiled in a controversial topic that told the story from a different point of view.
With ‘If I Stay,’ I want you to feel that the whole story is being told from a larger, spiritual point of view. So the beginning is very theatrical.

I find the world just too complex to embrace a single ideological point of view.
I’m actually surprised how technical a lot of commercial wine production is. Things are done very much from an industrial chemistry point of view at certain price points, but that’s not the impression you get with wine.
You know, whatever it takes. It’s very important obviously from an economic point of view because of the need for innovation, for progress, to improve the standard of living of people. But I also think it’s a critical issue in geopolitics too.
Like works of literature, mathematical ideas help expand our circle of empathy, liberating us from the tyranny of a single, parochial point of view. Numbers, properly considered, make us better people.
From the long range point of view, I do not know of anything we can do more important than to make some contribution to the preservation of religion as a vital force in America.

I was with my dad 20 years ago as he was dying. I was there at the moment of his death, and I kept wondering the whole while what it must feel like from his point of view to still be there thinking, hearing all that was going on as people came and went, and life continued all around him.
From this point of view, science – the real game in town – is rhetoric, a series of efforts to persuade relevant social actors that one’s manufactured knowledge is a route to a desired form of very objective power.
We’re all undesirable elements from somebody’s point of view.
Prayer may seem at first like disengagement, a reflective time to consider God’s point of view. But that vantage presses us back to accomplish God’s will, the work of the kingdom. We are God’s fellow workers, and as such we turn to prayer to equip us for the partnership.
My point of view as a writer has to be a lot more ego-less than just like being some performer on stage with a hairdo.
I’m from the point of view there’s something important to deliver to the world. You can be an entertainer; I suppose I shouldn’t be down on the idea of going to see a film for the hell of it, but there’s too much of that.
Even the most meticulous historians work subjectively. The historian‘s point of view, his or her selection of subject and sources, the emphasis, the tone – all of these lead to subjective history, inevitably so. I do not say this as a criticism, merely as an observation.
What a poem can do is provide you this intimate eye that, for the length of a poem and hopefully a little bit after, can provide testimony or a point of view.
The women’s movement, from my point of view, was part of the larger sexual revolution that ‘Playboy‘ had played such a large part in. The reality is that the major beneficiaries of the sexual revolution are women.

Politically, I don’t care what party you’re from, offer a point of view and let’s see what happens and really debate the issues rather than use personal attacks. Really talk about it, talk about immigration, talk about education, talk about pollution.
The paradigm helps a person identify the thought system, which is almost always false, that is behind the rationale for the continuation of excuses. It helps them really look at excuses from an objective point of view and realize that everything they’ve been thinking is just as likely to be not true as it is to be true.
I thought fashion was just the pretext to do images with lots of freedom and get them published in magazines. You could express your point of view, make statements about women and about what you believe in.
At my years, and with my disposition, or rather, constitution, one gets to care less and less for everything except downright goodfeeling. Life is so short, and so ridiculous and irrational (from a certain point of view) that one knows not what to make of it, unless–well, finish the sentence for yourself.
What makes me laugh about politics, sometimes, is it seems like once we get to a point where our problems are seemingly unsolvable, it’s because we’re looking through a wrong point of view. If we turn the thing on its head, then maybe we might see it differently.
A definite purpose, like blinders on a horse, inevitably narrows its possessor’s point of view.
The DNA of the novel – which, if I begin to write nonfiction, I will write about this – is that: the title of the novel is the whole novel. The first line of the novel is the whole novel. The point of view is the whole novel. Every subplot is the whole novel. The verb tense is the whole novel.
I have this exercise where I force myself to look out from the flower‘s point of view at these great walloping humans coming down the path, and try, just try and feel it from their point of view because it’s a different world to them, a fascinating hard one.
But I don’t actually adopt the point of view that our subjective impression of free will, which is a kind of indeterminacy behavior, comes from quantum mechanical indeterminacy.
We do not receive wisdom, we must discover it for ourselves, after a journey through the wilderness which no one else can make for us, which no one can spare us, for our wisdom is the point of view from which we come at last to regard the world.
Sirkian films really aren’t – at least the way I see them, they’re not about identification. They don’t have voiceover. A lot of the love stories that are rooted, classic love stories rooted in point of view, use voiceover as a mechanism for locating you there.
In retailing, the formula happens to be a basic liking for human beings, plus integrity, plus industry, plus the ability to see the other fellow’s point of view.
I take a biocentric point of view. I look at things from the point of view of the Earth and the laws of ecology. As opposed to the anthropocentric point of view, where everything revolves around humanity.

Sometimes it happens that a man’s circle of horizon becomes smaller and smaller, and as the radius approaches zero it concentrates on one point. And then that becomes his point of view.

Once I decide to take on a role it’s because I find that guy to be really interesting to watch and very compelling to play. And from that point on I can no longer judge him. I can only take on his point of view in order to play him effectively. And his point of view is often not mine.
In my point of view, bad girl is not a villain. Like, people in the United States use ‘bad’ as referring to something cool. So it means ‘Cool girl.’ I wish CL was like that.
I have made decisions based from purely an actor’s point of view.
Mr. Breschnev says we will bury you, I don’t subscribe to that point of view. It seems like such an ignorant thing to do, if the Russians love their children, too.

From my point of view, photography never got any better than it was in 1840.

The reason I do this job is because I started to be a painter. Making money in art was difficult. The easiest way to make money was to use art for some other reason. One of the easiest and most interesting from an economic point of view was fashion. Fashion pays.
Franco Moschino
I’ve always approached acting from a passion point of view. It’s what I love to do. The fact that we get paid is just a bonus.
From the point of view of many scientists, gods represent an explanation for the unknown. Scientists are focused on trying to understand the unknown, so there is a fundamental conflict. That said, some scientists find religion useful and perhaps even fulfilling.
I’m a pretty feminized geek, you know? I have that point of view, I grew up around a lot of girls, so I’m pretty sensitive to that. But I don’t dare say ‘I know how women think.’
From my point of view, he can be called a remarkable man who stands out from those around him by the resourcefulness of his mind, and who knows how to be restrained in the manifestations which proceed from his nature, at the same time conducting himself justly and tolerantly towards the weaknesses of others.

Yu Chui Yee
Art is, from any point of view, the greatest of risks.

From a victim’s point of view, our justice system is hardly fit for purpose. No doubt individual failings by police and prosecutors provide part of the explanation.

I studied journalism and was idealistic as a student. In course of time, I learnt that there’s a lot of politics, and it’s not easy to put forth your point of view as an investigative journalist.
The most important thing as a filmmaker, the hardest journey you’ll have, is to find your point of view.
Utopias and dystopias can exist side by side, even in the same moment. Which one you’re in depends entirely on your point of view.

Joanne Lipman
When women age into their power, no wind can upset them, no hand turn aside their knowledge, no fact can deflect their point of view.
Because we put ourselves in a movie or on TV, then it must mean we want to be completely open to the world. Sometimes, people will run up to you as if this is Disneyland and I’m a character. I understand their point of view, but it’s difficult to explain how terrified it makes me. I’m so nervous.
I detest the masculine point of view. I am bored by his heroism, virtue, and honour. I think the best these men can do is not talk about themselves anymore.
All humans are storytellers with their own unique point of view. When we understand this, we no longer feel the need to impose our story on others or to defend what we believe. Instead we see all of us as artists with the right to create our own art.
Yeah, I think of what I do as a work of journalism. It’s more like the op-ed page, though. These are my opinions. My point of view. The opinions are mine and I let you make up your own mind.
Comedy is all about having a point of view, and it’s also about power.
I have a tendency to often share the point of view of the conspiracy theory.

All of the [Bob] Fosse-esque movements and point of view informed years and years of what I would do.
I write from what I take to be the realist’s point of view, looking at life as it really is – or the way I see it to be.

I’ve talked a lot about the discipline and high, high skills of the British actors as seen from my Danish point of view. But I also have to say that Peter is unusually intelligent, humble and a good friend to everyone.
It’s easier to change a law than an age-old mentality. Deep down, many prejudices, many hostilities, many fears persist. But if we take a look at all the peoples in the world, we have to realize that the condition of women is very backward and sometimes very sad, from both the social and psychological points of view.
I love the villains who are really hyper-smart. When at the end of the movie you find out what they were about, and it makes absolutely perfect sense from their point of view.
From my point of view, being out is not about anything political. It’s just because I can’t be bothered to be in.
It’s the weight of expectation that’s the hardest to deal with, really, from my point of view.
Some years ago, I wrote a book called the Emperor’s New Mind and that book was describing a point of view I had about consciousness and why it was not something that comes about from complicated calculations.
As a musician and a songwriter it is an act of the ego to believe that other people might be interested in your point of view. But it is usually an empathetic nature that gets you going in the first place. Music keeps the heart porous in many ways.
What Copernicus really achieved was not the discovery of a true theory but of a fertile new point of view.
The key to understanding my career is that I was never into technology. From the beginning, I brought an outsider’s point of view, which is why I write for a layman‘s publication.

I have a very simple point of view, which is, I’m going to be alive for some amount of time; I don’t know how long that’s going to be. Then I’m going to be dead for a really, really long time. Right? You need to squeeze everything you can out of this time when you’re alive.
Believing that navel-gazing in and of itself can transform itself into something that means something for society. I mean, we are communicative creatures. We desire to sort of understand each other’s experiences and points of view. Storytelling is what painting, literature, filmmaking is all about.
If you break things down to goodies and baddies, the baddies are always a bit more alluring in fiction, and that’s true from a narrative point of view. But I wanted to write a novel about real life, and real life is a bit more nuanced than that.
You don’t want to make a movie just to make a movie. You better have a point of view.
I now realize that I was very fortunate to have grown up in many different places, surrounded by all kinds of people, all kinds of points of view.

From our point of view, the most exciting thing would be if we discovered something really fundamental in our understanding was just off a bit – and that now we have a chance to revisit it
The state, frankly, could care less. Historically, the state has been able to use any religious point of view for its own ends. . . . The examples of government misusing religion are endless.
From our point of view having American, Canadian or British troops on a rotating basis in Poland and in the Baltics would be an enormous boon to our defence capabilities.
For a small island, the place is remarkably diverse. Writers tend to see things from their own points of view, looking in one direction very much.
I’ve found that from my point of view, the Chen style contained many things that I knew on a fairly superficial level from Eagle Claw, and that had Chen elements of what seemed to me the soft in Eagle Claw.

I think comedy has to come from your authentic point of view.
I’m constantly struggling with the futility and even sinfulness, from an antinatalist point of view, of creativity. And that struggle itself seems part of the creativity, though I sometimes suspect that it’s nothing but a burden and an obstacle.
I just really enjoy the process of working with other talented, creative people. There’s great power in bringing diverse points of view together. It can be incredibly stimulating.
There isn’t much room for an outsider point of view in print any more.
Making a film from the point of view of a young boy’s eyes opened the door to another universe with lots of freedom and to explore a new dimension. This was achieved as I started doing things that were close to what exists in a child’s universe.
What is extraordinary about contemporary art is the energy – it has our energy. New energy. Pieces hundreds of years old are beautiful from an aesthetic point of view, but without our modern energy.
Our problem, from the point of view of psychology and from the point of view of genetic epistemology, is to explain how the transition is made from a lower level of knowledge to a level that is judged to be higher.

The truth is that the whole life of the worker is simply a continuous and dismaying succession of terms of serfdom – voluntary from the juridical point of view but compulsory in the economic sense – broken up by momentarily brief interludes of freedom accompanied by starvation; in other words, it is real slavery.
The White Queen in many ways it is representative of the sort of drama that I’m talking about. The books by Philippa Gregory were best sellers and they specifically told the story of history from the point of view of women.
In Slumdog Millionaire when you are immersed in the point of view of children in the slum and the bustle of the city, the handheld camerawork is amazing. A handheld camera is perfect for establishing point-of-view and for instilling the feeling that you are there.
The result of this is that so-called peace propaganda is just as dishonest and intellectually disgusting as war propaganda. Like war propaganda, it concentrates on putting forward a ‘case’, obscuring the opponent’s point of view and avoiding awkward questions.
For some people, every door opens, and they meet just who they need to meet when they need to meet them, all the conditions come together. For other people, there is one problem after the other, even though they are so sincere. And from a Tibetan point of view, this is because of a lack of merit.
I don’t say I create. I copy, of course. I’ve never been interested in the point of view of the tailor or creator. Fashion is a visual impression. This is why I often refuse the name of fashion designer. It’s a superficial, stupid job. The social-psychological aspect is more interesting.
Franco Moschino
From a personal point of view, I wouldn’t have been happy with one cap but would always have been happy with two. I never counted on getting to 80.
Humor is not debatable. It’s like sex. Either you’re aroused or you’re not. Nobody can reason you around to their point of view.
Style is the perfection of a point of view.
I find it both fascinating and disconcerting when I discover yet another person who believes that writing can’t be taught. Frankly, I don’t understand this point of view
Give credence to everyone’s point of view.

A show can be artistically successful; a show can be financially successful; a show can be successful by the transformative experience the audience is having; a show can be successful from the point of view of what is experienced by the cast and the company on a daily basis.
David Binder
I think from an artist’s point of view, everything in art, in fact everything in the world is available as material.
Some men don’t gel when it comes to work – you have different work ethics, different opinions, different points of views, different methods of filmmaking – and we didn’t gel.
No amount of data will tell you if a feature should be in the product, because it doesn’t exist. You need to have a very clear leader with a clear point of view… otherwise, you get a mishmash of features and stuff that doesn’t make a lot of sense.
I think it’s interesting, from a creative point of view, to have witnessed the loss of consciousness on a national level and on a cultural level – Bush had 91 percent support in the polls after 9/11. We wanted to kick some ass!
From my own point of view, I went to college in the States. I am very comfortable on the PGA Tour. I have made my family life over there. It would be a big upheaval for me to play full time in Europe, which is why I have decided that I am going to play mostly in the U.S. but still support Europe when it is possible.
To be able to say that “if we change our point of view in the following way … things are simpler” is always a gain.
I love to see what they [Michelle Obama and Kate Middleton] wear but I am not interested. It’s not natural. If you are a girl dressing up in the morning thinking about the whole world having a point of view on what you are wearing, it takes the pleasure out of getting dressed.

What’s interesting is that younger characters just have a more vibrant, exciting point of view on the world. They are more emotional, they are more dramatic, and they are just electric.
Literature is my life of course, but from an ontological point of view. From an existential point of view, I like being a teacher.
I believe the role that people like myself have played in the transformation of public opinion has been by persistently presenting a different point of view, a point of view which stresses the importance of private markets, of individual freedom, and the distorting effect of governmental policy.
I try to write from a point of view with my faith being always present and always there. don’t want to write characters where everyone is saved. So this Madea character for me is not saved.

From a political point of view, there is but one principle, the sovereignty of man over himself. This sovereignty of myself over myself is called Liberty
From a personal point of view I want some medals because that is what you aim for when you start out playing.
Everything’s always got to be character-based. We know we can’t, if we’re sitting in the editing room, watch the sequence for more than 20 seconds without a character having a point of view or moving the action forward; my brain just shuts down, or I start thinking about my laundry.
You know of our sympathetic interest in this country in Iran‘s desire to control its natural resources. From this point of view we were happy to see that the British Government has on its part accepted the principle of nationalization.
I have issues with liberals, which includes many gay people. I have found some liberal gays to be extremely intolerant of other points of view.

In 2013, the week before I dropped ‘Crenshaw,’ ‘Complex’ wrote an article that said that Nipsey Hussle is one of the top 25 underperforming artists. I was so offended that I responded with my own opinion about these journalists – their point of view is not validated in our culture.

Public discourse requires making an argument for a point of view, not having an argument – as in having a fight.

Reality makes no sense at all, except possibly from God’s point of view
Lori Singer

One thing Tolkien does incredibly well – and this is from a lay person’s point of view; I am not scholar or anything – is that you don’t have to make an effort to envisage the worlds that he writes about.

What he has in addition is pure empathy and projection,” Dr. Bloom said. “He can assume your point of view, or mine – and maybe some other points of view that scare and sicken him. It’s an uncomfortable gift, Jack. Perception’s a tool that’s pointed on both ends.

The nature of making music and making art, what motivates me is that it’s interesting. It’s interesting to listen, to really listen to other people’s point-of-view. Take in their work. Listen to the way they sing. Listen to the way they write lyrics. What they are trying to express.
The way I look at stories is often from far outside, like a god’s point of view, and also very, very subjective.

I’m into looking at things from the other point of view. And if you look at who votes in the Oscars, mostly older Jewish guys, they’re going to vote for stuff they relate to. Do they relate to NWA? I doubt it.
I often give my wife Carol scripts I’m offered and want her opinion – because she’s a really smart lady, and she’s got nothing to do with this business, so I get the audience’s point of view.

What I know for sure is that what you give comes back to you. That’s not just my theory or point of view, it’s physics. Life is an energy of giving and receiving… Those that are greedy, hit a road block where they are alone. Give more than you receive and be grateful for those around you.
I prefer being known for my stand-up because I write it. I love being an actor, and saying other people’s words is great. But then, when I do stand-up, I love getting my own point of view out there.
I think so much of kids’ television, kids’ entertainment, is done by adults from a looking-back point of view. If we come up with a really great joke that will make me laugh hard and would make my friends laugh, we pitch it aside.
Every piece of music is a form of personal expression for its creator…If a work doesnt express the composers own personal point of view, his own ideas, then it doesnt, in my opinion, even deserve to be born.

From the point of view of the relative world, merit is very important.
Satire must not be a kind of superfluous ill will, but ill will from a higher point of view. Ridiculous man, divine God. Or else, hatred against the bogged-down vileness of average man as against the possible heights that humanity might attain.
From a Buddhist point of view, emotions are not real. As an actor, I manufacture emotions. They’re a sense of play. But real life is the same. We’re just not aware of it.

The filmmakers I really love are the ones that let me look through their eyes for a while. They have an aesthetic and social point of view.
The last thinkg I want to do is spend the rest of my life pretending to be 17 or 27. Now it’s pretty interesting to me to see what can be said in the point of view of where I am now.
Tristen Gaspadarek

When I was building the Vietnam Memorial, I never once asked the veterans what it was like in the war, because from my point of view, you don’t pry into other people’s business.
I write from my point of view.
Takudzwa Victoria Rosa Maidza

My aesthetic is derived from my point of view which is one of optimism and hope. The camera became a conduit for my need to create a more beautiful world around me.
Mike Ruiz
[On New York City:] From a dating point of view, it’s like a really large rummage sale – lots of strange items, but darned little that you’d want to take home.
In Iran I think nobody loses their job because of making a statement that reflects their opinion. From this point of view, conditions in Iran are far better than in many other places in the world.
With Vietnam, the Iraq War, so many American films about war are almost always from the American point of view. You almost never have a Middle Eastern character by name with a story.
Experiencing yourself out of context, divorced from your usual point of view, skews your perspective – it’s like hearing your voice on an answering machine. It’s almost like meeting a stranger; or discovering a talent you never knew you had.
All reactionaries are paper tigers. In appearance, the reactionaries are terrifying, but in reality they are not so powerful. From a long-term point of view, it is not the reactionaries but
the people who are really powerful.
In Iran I think nobody loses their job because of making a statement that reflects their opinion. … From this point of view, conditions in Iran are far better than in many other places in the world.
The truth is that I have never created a president to push a political point of view. I am often looking to create aspirational characters; that’s true.

After a great deal of discussion in Soviet literature about the correct definition of a combination, it was decided that from the point of view of a methodical approach it was best to settle on this definition – A combination is a forced variation with a sacrifice.
‘Hedwig’ was pretty much all the things I wanted to do that other people said I probably shouldn’t do: drag, punk rock, stand-up comedy… You know, combine them all in a thing that’s supremely uncommercial from the objective point of view.
I know one thing for sure that Salman Khan has crazy pointers about everybody and he has a very different point of view about things. He would think from every angle and I am always scared of those people who would control my mental balance and just make me doubt myself.

I believe in the directorial point of view and directorial choices.
Like all sciences and all valuations, the psychology of women has hitherto been considered only from the point of view of men.
He who is continually changing his point of view sees more, and more clearly, than one who, statue-like, forever stands upon the same pedestal; however lofty and well-placed that pedestal may be.
I have a very feminine voice when I write, a very womanly point of view. My last name feels strong and powerful. To me, it’s almost a bit masculine. I like the dichotomy of the two. Two sides perfectly represented within my name.

From an organisation point of view, I want the BJP to be the bright national political party in all the states of India and having an impact on social life.
One of the great awards from a chef‘s point of view are Michelin stars. The ultimate is three Michelin stars. For example, Gordon Ramsey has three Michelin stars. Having one Michelin star is a big deal, two is incredible and having three puts you in a bracket of maybe 30 chefs worldwide.
There are two methods for the literary study of any book – the first being the study of its thought and emotion; the second only that of its workmanship. A student of literature should study some of the Bible from both points of view.
If you are not the victim, don’t examine it entirely from your point of view because when YOU’RE not the victim, it becomes pretty easy to rationalize and excuse cruelty, injustice, inequality, slavery, and even murder. But when you’re the victim, things look a lot differently from that angle.
One of the problems I have always discussed is the refusal to distinguish between comment and fact. The newspaper wraps every fact into a comment. It is impossible to give mere fact without establishing point of view.
The free market is at its best when everybody works in a fishbowl and tells you their point of view.
Nothing is absolute any longer. There is a choice of beliefs and a choice of truths to go with them. If you choose not to choose then there is no truth at all. There are only points of view.
I write a lot of songs about my impressions from a man’s point of view.
The orthodoxy of America is as rigid as that of Soviet Russia. There is one point of view allowed. If you start a conversation from another point of view, the words dry in your mouth.
Let’s forget about themes and mood boards. Let’s start from a different point of view. You have to leave for two months all of a sudden. What would you put in your suitcase? What are the twenty essential pieces that you will need and how would you design it to be cool, and you’ll want to wear it?
Every film I’ve made has a kind of frustrated love story in the center of it. They were people who saw life from opposing points of view, which has been in every film I’ve ever done. It had all the ingredients of the kinds of films I like to do.
I find that here in the States, audiences are generally less knowledgeable, from the cognitive point of view, though they are emotionally more receptive.
Your funny gets developed pretty early on. Comedy requires that you understand as much as possible about the viewpoints of all people and everything that’s going on around you. It genuinely requires a true point of view, a real sense of your own view of things in the world.

From an operating system research point of view, Unix is if not dead certainly old stuff, and it’s clear that people should be looking beyond it.
If you want the film [La La Land ] to represent all things jazz, it does not. You’ll be disappointed by that. But, if you just see it as one guy’s point of view, one filmmaker’s point of view, and one story among many stories that can be told about jazz, then it’s not as much of an issue.
Smash creative blocks. Change the problem or sneak up on it from a different direction. Try something fresh – a new way with an old theme, a different point of view, unusual tool.

She is Cuba. If you want to love her, you have to be with her, but you can’t be with her in her current state. It’s the point of view of all exiles – you have to leave the thing you cherish most.
My lip curls in a snide reflex whenever I hear that a new novel is written from the point of view of a child or a monster, a lunatic or an animal. I immediately expect a nasty coyness of tone, cheesy artifice, the world through cardboard 3-D lenses.
If you’re going to make a statement, I think you should write it in prose and make a statement. If you have characters who are mouthpieces for a point of view, then you have to be very clever about disguising it.
From my point of view, the Dreyfus affair is most interesting because it was sparked by a single cause celebre. Just one court case – one disputed trial – plunged an entire country into an angry debate, creating unresolvable divisions between people who had previously not known that they disagreed with one another.
From a scientific point of view, we now know that the water is interlaced with the lunar soil in many locations, perhaps as remnants of comet collisions with the lunar surface.
There is nothing insignificant in the world. It all depends on the point of view.
Because I’m a dramatist, I’m allowed to take liberties, but I want my films to be based in truth, and it’s very important to me that the community we’re focusing on is happy with the film. From an ethical point of view, that’s everything.

If you see everything from the point of view of women being victims in some way, you don’t see the wood for the trees. It is better to be a person than a woman.
I do think, however, that there’s a very diverse point of view in the African-American community. There’s a lot of different voices that need to be heard. I don’t claim and pretend to know the thoughts and opinions and ideas of all African-Americans.
Religion promotes the hatred and spite against gays. From my point of view, I would ban religion completely. Organised religion doesn’t seem to work. It turns people into really hateful lemmings and it’s not really compassionate.
The driver of the power of intelligent systems is the knowledge the systems have about their universe of discourse, not the sophistication of the reasoning process the systems employ.
Edward Feigenbaum
If there’s a movie of Neuromancer, what I really want the special effects guys to do is make you see, from Case’s point of view, the little acid giggies: the little lines and trails coming off of things.
The greatest triumphs of propoganda have been accomplished, not by doing something, but by refraining from doing. Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth.

This must be your point of view: that the world and all it contains is perfect, though not completed.
Men use women sexually. They use them, mistreat them, even from the point of view of vocabulary, the use of words. It baffles me.
Our understanding of the thought of the past is liable to be the more adequate, the less the historian is convinced of the superiority of his own point of view, or the more he is prepared to admit the possibility that he may have to learn something, not merely about the thinkers of the past, but from them.
King Lear alone among these plays has a distinct double action. Besides this, it is impossible, I think, from the point of view of construction, to regard the hero as the leading figure.
I’m from the South. I’m a Southern Baptist. I have a conservative point of view. I’m a Republican.
My point of view is, I’m just a person, and there are times when I look at other people and think, ‘My God, they spend so much time thinking about things that seem so absurd.’ But I’m sure people must think the same thing about me.
When we can see things as they are, without projecting our mental models and fears, we are being objective. When we can understand and consider another person’s point of view, we are being objective.
Is it easy for me to write from a female point of view? Yeah, I am a female. I’m a very sensitive type of guy. I try to put my female hat on and think how a female would think. If I’m watching ‘The Notebook,’ I’m definitely gonna cry. I cried during ‘E.T.’ too.
Technologists come at a problem from the point of view that the system is working a certain way, and if I engage in that system and actually change the rules of the system, I can make it work a different way.
My point of view, while extremely cogent, is unpopular. . . . That the repressive nature of the legalities vis-a-vis drugs are destroying the legal system and corrupting the police system.
Communication starts with the understanding that there is my point of view (my truth) and someone else’s point of view (his truth). Rarely is there one absolute truth, so people who believe that they speak the truth are very silencing of others.
Politicians of all stripes are always in danger at looking at every problem from an abstract point of view or being briefed by officials, academics, or economists who know every science but the science of human nature.
‘The Last Of Us,’ to me, is just amazing storytelling, because everything’s from the character point of view, which even movies don’t really do successfully a lot of the time.
The Middle East would always be an important trading partner in just a market sense, like America is a big market for us, Asia is a big market, Europe is a big market. You are going to have hundreds of millions of consumers there, from just a standard market point of view, from a very narrow American point of view.
From an evolutionary point of view, most emotions – fear, desire, anger – serve some practical purpose, but nostalgia is a useless, futile thing because it is a longing for something that is permanently lost . . . .
When you can flatten entire cities at a whim, a tendency towards quiet reflection and seeing-things-from-the-other-fellow’s-point- of-view is seldom necessary.
The last thing an Englishman wants to hear is a man from Brussels trying to imitate his language – you want to hear a different point of view. You may not be able to understand the details, but you can understand the feeling.

The perfect life is the combination of great moments and bad ones, and under that point of view, my life is fantastic, because I’ve certainly hit more than one bump.

Orientalism has successfully built my critical awareness to question and see the big picture of knowledge, perspective or idea from a Western point of view and always see things from different perspective.
I think if we could turn the dial a bit, and try to take what the philosopher Henry Sidgwick called “the point of view of the universe”, and look from above, and realize that we are not special, none of us are, I think it would just cause a transformation.
I don’t approach my writing or my work from an academic or analytical point of view. I do it for myself.
Now, with the glamour of the past upon them we are inclined to look back on old world festivities with regret and consider present day dances as a poor substitute for the old. From an artistic point of view, they maybe, but in individual freedom and independence of spirit they mark a stage upward.
I think one important thing that happens in the studio is accepting yourself as the enemy and painting from that point of view. So instead of pointing the finger outward and passing judgment, instead, you start with yourself as your own worst enemy.
Basically, I feel inspired by any artist that seems to want to introduce the world to their likes and perspective rather than trying to shape their interests and point of view to fit better into the world around them.
Actually, since I’m gay I think I should count for two guys instead of just one. I mean, in me you get the male point of view and you don’t have to worry about me wanting to touch your boobies.
Learn to accept your spouse‘s point of view, and allow them their emotions because you’d expect the same thing in return.
Casting sometimes is fate and destiny more than skill and talent, from a director’s point of view.
I don’t feel burdened, but I do feel a little frustrated. Because I see the problem, and I can see the solution – but there are two strongly different points of view on this – like the Republicans and Democrats.
Taking the child’s point of view demands good will, time, and effort on the part of parents. The child is the clear beneficiary. Parents who make the effort to understand their children’s point of view are likely to treat children fairly and in an age-appropriate manner.
Cynicism is tough. A cynic’s point of view is really pitiful. I derive pleasure out of a lot of things in life. As long as I’m fairly healthy, it’s hard to stay dismal for very long.
Swallow My Gift’ is all about music being its own reward. I don’t do it to become more famous; I don’t do it to make money. I don’t do it from an ego-driven point of view.
I want to show the event at the very moment it takes place…. My body must be anchored to the ground and seek the best point of view, without any visual taboos. But then, at the heart of the event, my effort is to disappear, I introduce a distance that borders on indifference.
If I have to wear a hat as a producer to do that, then I’m willing to do that. An actor’s, producer’s and director’s point-of-view is all the same to me, as long as the story’s being told.
We are also trying to fight successfully in the European Union against anti-Semitism. Because of Austria‘s history, it is, from my point of view, our obligation to do that.
There are lots of artists in the world. But there’s only one you. And the only person who has your point of view is you. If you decide not to make things, all you’ve done is deprive the world of all the stuff that only you could have brought to it.
I define myself from a vision, from a point of view of life.
From the physical point of view, a man is nothing more than a system of cells, or from the mental point of view, than a system of representations; in either case, he differs only in degree from animals.
The worldly person is insane from the point of view of the spiritual person.
Poetry is partly sympathy, don’t you think? If it’s any good, it gets people to think about others’ points of view.
If you don’t allow people to contribute, to offer their point of view, or to criticize what has been put before them, then they can never like you. And you can never build that instrument of collective leadership.
The materialistic point of view in psychology can claim, at best, only the value of an heuristic hypothesis.
From a scientific point of view, our mission is to seek answers to the fundamental questions about the universe. Many are open – we don’t know about dark matter, which accounts for a quarter of the universe’s matter, nor do we know why there’s antimatter.
The perfect victim, from the sociopath‘s point of view, is the person who is smart enough and capable enough to do him some good in the world and who is also fun to manipulate. How much fun is it to manipulate someone who is stupid and incompetent?
I’ve always been interested in why do people behave in certain ways which are crazy from a normal point of view.
When you write for somebody else, you’ve got to write from their standpoint. You can’t really write from your own point of view.

Art is a point of view, and a genius way of looking at things.
The battle of Varus is an enigma, not in a military but in a political point of view – not in its course, but in its consequences.
The most fatal illusion is the narrow point of view. Since life is growth and motion, a fixed point of view kills anybody who has one.
It presents a really compelling case against the whole theory of anthropogenic global warming. From my point of view, it is a theory that has completely corrupted public policy making in most of the developed world.В It confronts all the dubious claims that the warmists have put outВ there.
I think it is the responsibility of critics to rely less strenuously on, to use a Hollywood phrase, “what they can live with,” and more on an examination of the works of art from an aesthetic and clinical point of view.
As one of my teachers, Buckminster Fuller, says, we were given a right foot and a left foot, not a right foot and a wrong foot. The point is that, there’s always two points of view out there, and we need to increase our ability to allow another point of view. Then we have a better chance for peace.
I remember periods where we didn’t even have beats in our club sets, but people kept dancing. The beat wasn’t even necessary, because it was a biokinetic experience – that’s our metaphor for the dance and the body and all its expressions. From today’s point of view, this would be totally impossible.
From the director’s point of view, it’s infinitely easier to do violence than to do a good dramatic scene.
You cannot live your life looking at yourself from someone else’s point of view.
From my point of view, this is the best time of the year. I don’t love heat. I’m a winter guy.
A unique relationship develops among team members who enter into dialogue regularly. They develop a deep trust that cannot help but carry over to discussions. They develop a richer understanding of the uniqueness of each person’s point of view.
When you look at nutrition from a purely scientific point of view, there is no place for consciousness. And yet, consciousness could be one of the crucial determinants of the metabolism of food itself.
I look for strong people. I don’t like people who’ll say yes to everything I might bring up. I want people who can argue and disagree and have a point of view that’s reflected in the magazine. My dad believed in the cult of personality. He brought great writers and columnists to ‘The Standard.’
From my point of view, things don’t have to change to get better. Things are fantastic.
Donald Trump doesn’t necessarily 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.
You don’t need the ‘voice of God’ commentary. Instead, by juxtaposing contradictory or confirmatory witnesses and archive material, your point of view becomes obvious.
Marcel Ophuls
It’s important for the children’s point of view. That they have parents who are equally unreasonable, but in different ways.
Guy Jenkin
There’s nothing wrong with a male’s point of view, obviously, but it’s just a different way of telling a story.
I’m called a folk singer, and I’m not too sure about that. I went about my life approaching music not from the point of view of a singer, but from the point of view of an actor. That’s how I first started to sing.
Politics in this country [USA] is always tough. It’s always contentious, because this is a big country and a diverse country, and people have strong points of view, and we’ve got a great diversity of interests.
I believe the path to a long career is to keep the audience guessing. Daniel Day Lewis 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. And he’s a dad, and there’s stuff about his life that I relate to with my life, and I can also take the abilities of animals, which a lot of people don’t know about me.
I’m not good at standing on platforms and persuading 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 by.
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 an event.
I kind of look at things from a very common-sense point of view.
From the point of view of the pharmaceutical industry, the AIDS problem has already been solved. After all, we already have a drug which can be sold at the incredible price of $8,000 an annual dose, and which has the added virtue of not diminishing the market by actually curing anyone.
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.
Dov Charney
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, bombastic, 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 you encounter have: he had a writer’s mind and he had his own comic point of view.
The final goal … is to grasp the native‘s point of view,
his relation to life, to realise his vision of his world.
My point of view and philosophy continues to change and grow. As the years go by you go through this evolution.
Seeing things from a different point of view can help us understand why other people act the way they do. We too often judge people without having all the facts.
Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
The things I’m making for Vero are very pure. They’re from my point of view, and I’m not pulling any punches.
I think in general, romantic comedies tend to take one person’s point of view, but every once in a while you get something that is balanced for two people.
Just watching the people on the streets of NY is inspiring, there are so many styles and unique points of views. Fashion is very much inspired by the streets, has always been and I’m sure it will continue to do so.
Man is pre-eminently endowed with the power of voluntarily and consciously determining his own point of view.
I assumed from the outset that photography was already art, and that I and other people working in photography were artists. I understand now that this was a minority point of view.
Comedy and tragedy co-exist. You can’t have one without the other. I’m of the school that anything can be funny if seen from a comedic point of view.
I think people have a right to their point of view.
I sometimes think it’s better to go with a bad movie 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 to.
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.
It is immoral from almost any point of view to refuse to defend yourself and others from very grave and terrible threats, even as there are limits to the means that can be used in such defense.
I will say that a lot of art, some of the best art, has very powerful and meaningful messages behind it, and the more you read the stuff on the walls, the more you learn the artist’s intention, and you have a totally new point of view of what it’s about.
I know from an editor’s point of view or a publisher‘s point of view it’s easier to slot me into a particular niche. But I know that I’d be bored unless I wrote a book that in some senses was a challenge.
When you are writing for an artist you are trying to get into that artist’s point of view. What does that artist want to say? What do they care about? And musically, you want to show off that artist.
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 his own work, here it is.
There’s a number of other things where people can advocate for their positions, from a faith point of view on right to life and a whole range of things, that don’t involve removing the rights of another Canadian.
Erin O’Toole
There are pretty girls all over the place. But there are still a lot of people standing strong, doing their thing in loving relationships, actually staying true. I wanted to write an honest love song from that point of view.
Nonsense is that which does not fit into the prearranged patterns which we have superimposed on reality…Nonsense is nonsense only when we have not yet found that point of view from which it makes sense.
The emergence of a new term to describe a certain phenomenon, of a new adjective to designate a certain quality, is always of interest, both linguistically and from the point of view of the history of human thought.
[L]ook at it from Vicente Fox‘s point of view. I mean if – if you had a renegade, potential criminal element that was poor and unwilling to work, and you had a chance to get rid of 500,000 every year, would you do it?
That’s what happens in three-dimensional animation, you tell the computer what the subject is like and the computer can figure what it would look like from any camera’s point of view.
In the end, the only heritage we have is our planet, and I have decided to go to the most pristine places on the planet and photograph them in the most honest way I know, with my point of view, and of course it is in black and white, because it is the only thing I know how to do.
Experimental evidence has now verified that nuclear reactions can be caused to occur in heavily loaded solids. It is premature to predict where this is headed from an applications point of view, but the basic science is clearly revolutionary.
George H. Miley
If you’re looking for investment you’ve got to think about what the investor gets from being involved with your business. A lot of people think about what they’re getting from their point of view but not about what the investor gets out of a deal.
And, one thing I definitely enjoyed personally, 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 and sounds, etc.
Writing is an act of empathy. You are occupying and understanding a point of view that might be alien to your own–and work is often the keyhole through which you peer.
Philosophical theories 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‘s.
What appeals to me? There are things, points of view, uses of the language, habits of dress, 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 may hold.
When I listen to an American singer, I wanna listen to his music in his language, because he’s more spontaneous – he’s more natural – and I need his point of view. And our point of view here in Brussels is French and Flemish.
There is no essential difference between the material of comedy and tragedy. All depends on the point of view of the dramatist, which, by clever emphasis, he tries to make the point of view of his audience.
The last issue I remember where a president was involved was in the capital punishment of 1993 blasts convict Yaqub Memon. Otherwise, in your life, in my life, how does a president make a difference? Has a president ever stated his point of view on anything?
Reagan loved and respected his father, Jack Reagan. But if there was a father figure to Reagan in the religious sense, it was Ben Cleaver. What Reagan’s father didn’t provide spiritually, from a fatherly point of view, Cleaver did.
If you have a certain point of view and reasons that you think are valid, then whether it’s pro or anti, you can only and should only express those views you honestly hold.
Steve Ditko
In America, dogs are viewed by their names first, breed second. And dogs live behind walls. It’s an unnatural point of view.
The decision for me was whether to have ‘The Father’ be a book that told a story – from the point of view of this speaker, the daughter – without, as in the earlier books, then having a section on something else and a section on something else.
A film is a film and it has to be good to be inspired. That’s number one. It can be Italian, French, German, American. It’s moving images in front of you and with a strong director who injects his point of view and artistry.
I don’t think people go to musicians for their political points of view. I think your political point of view is circumstances and then how you were nurtured and brought up.
The author’s opinions do not necessarily coincide with his point of view.
I am going to do my best to try to create a country in which children are not living in poverty, in which kids can go to college, in which old people have health care. Will I succeed? I can’t guarantee you that, but I can tell you that from a human point of view it is better to show up than to give up.
The stronger a brand’s point of view, the greater its voltage.
There is no truth. Only points of view.
From my point of view, the American financial system – including banks and investment banks – is far safer because of capital and liquidity requirements. Despite all the turbulence so far this year, I don’t think anyone’s questioning our system. And that, obviously, is a good thing.
From a scientific point of view, it’s hard for me to understand why someone in the Texas Panhandle should not have access to the same research funds that someone in the Oklahoma Panhandle can have.
From an over-arching point-of-view, in war there is heroism on both sides. Obviously, the victor gets the spoils, the victor gets to write history, but there’s heroism and compassion on both sides, and to me that’s very important.
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 of the universe, and it was, I thought, fairly understandable 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 take on the character’s sound. I don’t want the reader to be aware of me, writing.
From the point of view of the people who are using the platform, one of the most valuable things about Java is the consistency, the interoperability.
The ’60s may be idealized in the movie from a cultural point of view, but the decade was all about discord and a big generational split that was very painful.
Art should be like a holiday: something to give a man the opportunity to see things differently and to change his point of view.
I can understand why Christians call us heretics. But most important, who will God call a heretic? From God’s point of view, my revelation is deeply orthodox.
I think we are waiting for an e-book that even non-techies can be comfortable with. From my point of view, the biggest change is that I don’t have to spend most of the day printing out and packaging a manuscript. I think I almost miss that.
From a purely entertainment point of view, to create a movie with a female lead that is empowered with her own sexuality I think is a really powerful thing.
The imbalance between developed and underdeveloped countries – caused by the relationships of dependence – becomes more acute if the cultural point of view is taken into consideration.
The ‘squaring of the circle’ is one of the many archetypal motifs which form the basic patterns of our dreams and fantasies. But it is distinguished by the fact that it is one of the most important of them from the functional point of view. Indeed, it could even be called the archetype of wholeness.
Citizens and those elected to serve must also understand the point of view, the goals and the fears of those with whom we disagree.
Marriage is a reflection of your life in general: how you treat people, how you argue, how secure 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?
I don’t like my movies. I prefer John Ford’s movies. I’ve made some movies that are interesting, or that have some point, or are more or less beautiful. 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 director.
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 of women.
And obviously, from our own personal point of view, the principal challenge is a personal challenge.

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 do and seeking feedback through listening.
There is no society that protects freedom of religion more than secular democracies, because in societies where one religion rules, different viewpoints will be labelled as heresy and blasphemy. Why? Because the society is built on religion – not freedom for all points of view.
The horizon of many people is a circle with a radius of zero. They call this their point of view.
This year [2016] we’re seeing a really strange upending [of the party]. The money was coming from these super-wealthy donors who were really on the far, hard right, people like the Kochs. So the party and the candidates moved so far to the right that a lot of people who don’t share their point of view were unhappy.
From the point of view of a tapeworm, man was created by God to serve the appetite of the tapeworm.
Sometimes I like to list the strongest arguments I can find to support a point of view I think is wrong. When I have them before me, I am up against a real opponent rather than a hypothetical one that is an easy target for me to hit.
I come to the table from a conservative or libertarian point of view, and I admit that. I’m a commentator. I’m not a journalist or anything else.
There is no neutral ground when it comes to the tolerance question. Everybody has a point of view she thinks is right, and everybody passes judgment at some point or another. The Christian gets pigeonholed as the judgmental one, but everyone else is judging, too, even people who consider themselves relativists.
I’m just coming from a more personal – and, I guess, more nostalgic – point of view.
All men are our brothers. As far as the discovery of the truth is concerned, they are all working for the same purpose; they may be separated by the accidents of space and time, and by the exigencies of race, religion, nationality, and other groupings; from the point of view of eternity they are working together.
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 Magazine, that was a big thing. I suddenly felt like there were other people that felt the way I did, and there was a way of expressing and communicating this worldview.
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 people shouldn’t miss them, and I got every word of his that I could, and I could see by hard argument there was only the one way for it.
You’re a white South African, and right away you have to explain yourself. Occasionally, I get hassled until I explain my point of view. I have to make it clear that I don’t live there anymore, and I don’t approve of the brutal racial policies.
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, but I also believe men should be, too. We need both – yin and yang.
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.
The smartest people are constantly revising their understanding, reconsidering a problem they thought they’d already solved. They’re open to new points of view, new information, new ideas, contradictions, and challenges to their own way of thinking.
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.
Aaron Copland was a man that had a very specific point of view about what music should be which was that, he felt that new music should have the composer should show a personality in his music.
I develop my work in a time that, from my point of view, is much more #‎ romantic than the present day
Fabian Perez
Evil is a point of view.
I think from the business point of view, Taiwan and China tied together brings mutual benefit. And we don’t see any reason for stopping that progress, unless they have a political reason.
I’m not an extroverted person, nor am I hyper-confident in my point of view. I just don’t have that personality.
I paint inspired by my father, a well known character of the nightlife; a clandestine gambling capitalist and owner of three brothels in Argentina. I develop my work in a time that, from my point of view, is much more romantic than the present day.
Fabian Perez
From a certain point of view our real enemy, the true troublemaker, is inside.
After 20-plus years of looking purely from an individuals point of view as a player, now I have to look at it from a coachs perspective, getting into players heads, delivering 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 and exclusive.
The best movies are made from a point of view of an understanding of human nature and an understanding of history and an understanding of what motivates people, of what makes a good movie from an emotional place.

I deal with football from a realistic, logical point of view.
‘Vicky Donor’ is now seen as a case study and the intelligentsias are looking at it from a strong academic point of view. I keep getting calls from medical practitioners who constantly thank me for making this film.
When two opposite points of view are expressed with equal intensity, the truth does not necessarily lie exactly half way 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 fighting it.
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.
From the point of view of being in the public radar, comedians have less problems than other actors. Action movie stars like Stallone or Schwarzenegger usually attract the more aggressive fans.
Radical historians now the tell the story of Thanksgiving from the point of view of the turkey.
My life in Hollywood surrounded by celebrities became a point of view for me – sports, fashion, music, film, arts, and politics as a media play.
Spending time with the horses was also a good place to escape to if you were having a bad day, so it was good from a mental point of view.
I’m drawn to girls with a certain self-effacing, humorous quality and an innate independence and point of view. I love the notion of never taking yourself too seriously or being too put together.
I’m not a mean comic, I don’t want to turn anybody off – I just want to give a point of view or my take on things that everyone can laugh at.
Gary Owens
When I create a collection, I approach it with a cinematic point of view-I am not designing clothes, I’m creating a world.
Gray and overcast from my earthly perspective, but it’s sunny above these storm clouds. Grace lets us see life from God’s point of view.
Modern man has so long preached a doctrine of false tolerance; he has so long believed that right and wrong were only differences in a point of view, that now when evil works itself out in practice he is paralyzed to do anything against it.
Catalan language is one of the most complete and perfect expressions that I know from the point of view regarding language, I not only read it since many years ago, but I understand it. Moreover, I speak it intimately too.
Eventually the consumer will come to appreciate the editorial point of view of every different brand. User-generated content without editorial oversight will simply be background noise.
As the Chinese will tell you, history depends on your point of view.
And then modelling, because it pays you really well and you get to travel, I was forced to get used to the idea of standing in front of a camera and having six or seven people watching me and that actually allowed me to loosen up from an acting point of view.
I don’t look forward to a time when every politician, every legislator goes to Washington absolutely committed to an extreme point of view. Elected representatives are sent to Washington to compromise, not to never compromise.
From a purely ethnological point of view, I was not a period-born Dada.
Depression means that you have no point of view.
Reality is just a point of view.
As an actor, you can’t play a flashback; you can’t play someone’s memory. You just have to play each circumstance as if it was real and understand that person’s point of view.
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 than Dickens. 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 and grammar. 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 and multicultural 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.
