9717. Obviously there are times with acting when exactly what is required is just going through the motions, and when doing nothing is the best thing. But at other times, you have to make that leap beyond the immediate environment of people putting up lights on the set. – Christian Bale

9718. It’s got to do with putting yourself in other people’s shoes and seeing how far you can come to truly understand them. I like the empathy that comes from acting. – Christian Bale

9719. The point of having a director is that they make the final decision; it’s their point of view, they set the rhythm and they make the final decisions. – Christian Bale

9720. Nuclear apocalypse – who do you need? Actors are probably not top of the list. What can I do for you? I can pretend to be somebody who can grow you some nice crops. – Christian Bale

9725. It’s not who I am underneath but what I do that defines me. – Christian Bale

9726. There are movies that require fantasy and slightly more fantastical acting. Lines that are good for certain movies, in real life circumstances, would be absolutely unbelievable things to really say, and you would look at these people like they’re freaks for conversing that way. But somehow for certain styles of movies, it works, and it seems fine. – Christian Bale

9727. It’s about pursuing it rather than waiting to see what comes along. That’s partly because I found myself getting typecast, as everyone does unless they pursue roles that are very different from what they’ve done before. – Christian Bale

9728. In terms of the romantic kind of lead, I just never enjoy those movies very much. Maybe they’ll come to interest me more as I get older. I doubt it, but maybe. Romantic comedies tend to be, for me, an oxymoron. – Christian Bale

9729. In everyday life, my wife is the most wonderful. We’re in love with each other beyond belief. – Christian Bale

9730. If everyone really knew what a jerk I am in real life, I wouldn’t be so adored in the slightest. – Christian Bale

9731. I’ve had some painful experiences in my life, but I feel like I’m trivializing them by using them for a scene in a movie. I don’t want to do that. It just makes me feel kind of dirty for having done that. – Christian Bale

9733. The interesting thing about a movie is the movie. – Christian Bale

9735. What the hell kind of man decides to dress up as a bat and run around the city? There’s got to be something a little bit loose in there. – Christian Bale

9736. When it comes to films, people often don’t differentiate between the message of a bad central character and the message of the film itself. They are two separate things. – Christian Bale

9737. You’re creating a different world and the actor’s job is to be able to convince the audience to enter into that world, whether it be actually something that you recognize from your own life or not. – Christian Bale

9738. So yeah, a good director will be able to listen and hear everything, but have a confident vision of his own that he can say, ‘oh yeah – that’s a great point.’ And you never know; often you can help far more than you think you can, because there’s so much more that he’s juggling than an actor. – Christian Bale

9739. I tend to think you’re fearless when you recognize why you should be scared of things, but do them anyway. – Christian Bale

9740. I have this theory that, depending on your attitude, your life doesn’t have to become this ridiculous charade that it seems so many people end up living. – Christian Bale

9741. An actor should never be larger than the film he’s in. – Christian Bale

9742. I went backwards and forwards over it until I was 22. And then in the past few years I began to say to myself, OK, look, I’m not messing around. This is something I want to attack, instead of thinking, I’ll just see what happens with it. – Christian Bale

9743. I never want to turn something down because I’m afraid to do it, because of some idea of image or whatever. That was never anything I set out to do. In fact, the opposite, I always want to confuse people in terms of any kind of image and be unpredictable in any kind of movie I make. – Christian Bale

9746. I never want to feel that I’m playing it safe. – Christian Bale

9747. I mean, first of all, let me say whichever superhero first came up with the idea of wearing a cape, he wasn’t really onto anything good. The number of times I’m treading on that damn thing or I throw a punch and it ends up covering my whole head. It’s really not practical. – Christian Bale

9748. I will never say never, but I will say never to doing the more typical romantic comedies. You know, unless I’m getting audited and I’m on the street and I desperately need some dough and that’s the only thing that I’m getting. – Christian Bale

9749. I like the idea of movies having a magic element. How many times have you seen an actor in a movie who you know only as the character? It’s wonderful, isn’t it? – Christian Bale

9750. All of the muscles were gone, so that was a real tough time of rebuilding all of that. But you have a deadline, you have an obligation. You’ve said that you will commit to this part, and I just can’t live with myself for not really giving it as much as I can. – Christian Bale

9751. I have a fear of being boring. – Christian Bale

9752. I don’t think I’m like any of the characters I’ve played – they’re all really far from who I am. – Christian Bale

9753. I don’t personally look to my own life experiences for answers about how to play a scene. – Christian Bale

9754. Essentially, I’m untrained, so I just go with my imagination and try to put myself as solidly as I can into the shoes of whatever person I’m going to be playing. – Christian Bale

9755. But I learned that there’s a certain character that can be built from embarrassing yourself endlessly. If you can sit happy with embarrassment, there’s not much else that can really get to ya. – Christian Bale

9756. But I enjoyed getting sick, I didn’t mind it at all. So in that short amount of time, I did actually go from 121 right back up to 180, which is way too fast obviously. And that resulted in some doctors visits to get things sorted out. – Christian Bale

9757. ‘Batman’ took 10 months to film, and by the time I stopped working on it, it took a long time before my English accent came out again. I was actually having to try for it. – Christian Bale

9758. And being as I’m somebody who loves movies like The Machinist, I also love going along to big mass entertainment movies. I get in the mood for all kinds of movies, and so I like to try each of them. – Christian Bale

9759. A movie star is someone people look at and go, ‘I want to be like that person’. There’s the responsibility of desire. It’s not something I’m interested in trying. I would fail miserably at it, so why even bother? – Christian Bale

9827. In a completely sane world, madness is the only freedom! – J. G. Ballard

9847. We’ve grown from 18% of the profits of the top 25 companies in our industry to 23% of the profits of the top 25 companies in our industry over the last five years. Profits are up over 70%, where the industry profit is up about 35%. Pretty good. – Steve Ballmer

9848. Linux is a cancer that attaches itself in an intellectual property sense to everything it touches. – Steve Ballmer

9854. The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive.

9855. We can believe that we know where the world should go. But unless we’re in touch with our customers, our model of the world can diverge from reality. There’s no substitute for innovation, of course, but innovation is no substitute for being in touch, either. – Steve Ballmer

9856. We will make our products work out of the box. – Steve Ballmer

9857. I think our leadership team is a highly accountable leadership team. – Steve Ballmer

9858. What we’ve gone through in the last several years has caused some people to question ‘Can we trust Microsoft?’ – Steve Ballmer

9859. We don’t have a monopoly. We have market share. There’s a difference. – Steve Ballmer

9861. I’m very, very bullish about our prospects, and as I tell our board, as I tell our employees, this is the time to invest. There’s so much opportunity. Let’s just invest in that opportunity, and really get after it. – Steve Ballmer

9862. All companies of any size have to continue to push to make sure you get the right leaders, the right team, the right people to be fast acting, and fast moving in the marketplace. We’ve got great leaders, and we continue to attract and promote great new leaders. – Steve Ballmer

9865. Google’s not a real company. It’s a house of cards. – Steve Ballmer

9866. Great companies have high cultures of accountability, it comes with this culture of criticism I was talking about before, and I think our culture is strong on that. – Steve Ballmer

9867. I come back to the same thing: We’ve got the greatest pipeline in the company’s history in the next 12 months, and we’ve had the most amazing financial results possible over the last five years, and we’re predicting being back at double-digit revenue growth in fiscal year ’06. – Steve Ballmer

9868. I don’t know what a monopoly is until somebody tells me. – Steve Ballmer
