180222. Comedians are not usually actors, but imitations of actors. – Johann Georg Zimmermann

180227. War itself is the enemy of the human race. – Howard Zinn

180228. We need to decide that we will not go to war, whatever reason is conjured up by the politicians or the media, because war in our time is always indiscriminate, a war against innocents, a war against children. – Howard Zinn

180229. When people don’t understand that the government doesn’t have their interests in mind, they’re more susceptible to go to war. – Howard Zinn

180232. Dissent is the highest form of patriotism. – Howard Zinn

180235. Dialogue is a necessary evil. – Fred Zinnemann

180236. In the lead up to the Iraq war and its later conduct, I saw at a minimum, true dereliction, negligence and irresponsibility, at worse, lying, incompetence and corruption. – Anthony Zinni

180237. I was never the diplomatic diplomat. – Adolfo Aguilar Zinser

180238. We cannot pretend that reality is different from what it is. – Adolfo Aguilar Zinser

180239. Any Mexican, would recognise that Mexico was abused, undervalued and downgraded in international circles, most of all by the United States. – Adolfo Aguilar Zinser

180240. I hadn’t focused on mechanics since I signed professionally. – Barry Zito

180241. I do look forward to keeping in touch with the guys, because we’ll always be connected in people’s minds. – Barry Zito

180242. I just write mechanical things. – Barry Zito

180243. I think in the bullpen you can tell during your warmups, if you have a good feel for it. But anything can happen once you get into a game. Sometimes you just wind up throwing it better than ever before one day without knowing why. – Barry Zito

180244. I’m OK being the veteran, but I’m still just a kid. – Barry Zito

180245. It’s not like I’m some kind of veteran and there is this huge age gap. I identify with them more off the field. I need to set an example, which is great, and I look forward to doing just that. – Barry Zito

180246. Meyer and I have a bit in common because we’re both left-handed. I think it’s great that he seeks out that advice because he’s not too cool or too uncomfortable to ask for it. – Barry Zito

180247. Some people pray to a totem pole, some people pray to a sun, some people pray to a god. It all works for them. It all comes back to what you think. – Barry Zito

180248. The outfield is solid, so is the catching and the infield. – Barry Zito

180249. Big league defense is going to get outs most times. – Barry Zito

180250. So if one, or two, or a handful of guys sells drugs for their own personal gain and profit who just so happens to be a member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, we want that same consideration. – Chuck Zito

180251. See, I’m fortunate that I get around a lot because of my movie business. – Chuck Zito

180252. Now as far as the organization selling drugs, no. Individuals selling drugs is something else. – Chuck Zito

180253. So from an angry lawman’s mouth, the Outlaw Motorcyclists were born. – Chuck Zito

180254. So it just goes to show you that it was always the Hells Angels first. They were the originals and all other clubs try and imitate what the Hells Angels have already done. – Chuck Zito

180255. Sonny and another Hells Angel who was at the meeting thought they were beyond a little patch so they headed down to a local tattoo shop in Oakland and were the first to get the famous One Percent tattoos. – Chuck Zito

180256. Then we have a World Run, where representatives from all the charters meet. – Chuck Zito

180257. There was no club but the Hells Angels as far as I was concerned. – Chuck Zito

180258. Like I said, when I was a kid, they inspired me. – Chuck Zito

180259. When I was old enough to ride a motorcycle and got my license, I bought a ’69 Sportster. – Chuck Zito

180260. You get to know them, they get to know you and see if they like you. Then they’ll vote on you to become a prospect. You have to be sponsored by a Hells Angel. – Chuck Zito

180261. There’s probably about 150 charters in the world. We’re the biggest international club there is. – Chuck Zito

180262. Not exactly hit them, but I’ve restrained a few people. – Chuck Zito

180263. I belonged to another club, and liked the camaraderie. – Chuck Zito

180264. I was a stuntman for over fifteen years. – Chuck Zito

180265. I’m in California a lot; I go overseas sometimes and I meet more Hells Angels than other Angels do. – Chuck Zito

180266. I’ve been fighting my whole life. – Chuck Zito

180267. If the challenge to fight was there, I always took it. – Chuck Zito

180268. Let me tell you something: I have members in my charter who, after paying their rent and house bills and taking care of their families, don’t even have enough money left over to pay the fifteen dollars a week dues. – Chuck Zito

180269. Communists should be the first to be concerned about other people and country and the last to enjoy themselves. – Zhao Ziyang

180270. Men are different. When they are in love they may also have other girlfriends. – Zhang Ziyi

180271. When I watch a movie for the first few times I’m usually thinking about where I was in a given scene, who was next to me, what we were doing etc. But after I’ve gotten through all of this, when I’m really watching the film itself, then I get moved. – Zhang Ziyi

180272. Yes. Otherwise I could have done a lot of Hollywood movies. After Crouching Tiger I got a lot of offers, but I turned them down because they were all victim roles – poor girls sold to America to be a wife or whatever. I know I have the ability to go deeper, to take on more original roles than that. – Zhang Ziyi

180273. I wanted to escape so badly. But of course I knew I couldn’t just give up and leave school. It was only when I heard my mom’s voice that I came out of my hiding place. – Zhang Ziyi

180274. There was one very special scene at the end of the film. My character, Zhao Di, has been sick. She wakes up and her mother tells her that the man she loves has come back from the city and had spent the day by her bedside. – Zhang Ziyi

180275. There are films you see that only reach your eyes. Then there are films that you can watch… that reach down to your throat, or reach your heart. “In the Mood for Love,” though, reached all the way to my belly. – Zhang Ziyi

180276. There are actors who spend 20 years working and still don’t achieve what I’ve achieved so quickly. So I think my only course of action is to work as hard as I can, not just for the sake of the film, but also to prove to these people that I do have talent. – Zhang Ziyi

180277. The atmosphere at my school was very competitive. Young girls were competing with each other every day for status, for leadership, for the affection of the teachers. I hated it. – Zhang Ziyi

180278. That whole environment was just incompatible with my beliefs and my personality. It was a dark time for me. – Zhang Ziyi

180279. They’re not willing to admit that I’ve also shed blood and tears and often paid dearly for my success. This makes me feel extremely sad. – Zhang Ziyi

180280. Ordinarily if an actor gets chosen for the lead in a film, he or she has already built up a repertoire, and everyone knows what he or she is capable of. – Zhang Ziyi

180281. Most people spend their whole lives looking for the right job. There are others who never get an opportunity to do work that fulfils them. – Zhang Ziyi

180282. I’m not really interested in politics, because I think it’s just too removed from my own life. If there’s a war, though, or a disaster, I want to know what’s happening. – Zhang Ziyi

180283. We’re still working out the details, but I’d be delighted to do the film. The problem at the moment is my busy schedule. Shooting on this film has been extended by a month, but I need to be in the U.S. by Dec. 20. – Zhang Ziyi

180284. From beginning to end I worried that Ang Lee wouldn’t be satisfied with my work. So I worked as hard as I could to earn his trust, because you only get a chance like this once. – Zhang Ziyi

180285. When two people first meet, they can only have a very ordinary kind of friendship. But when you begin to understand each other, when you get close to them, you discover that you’re suddenly eager to know him or her even better. – Zhang Ziyi

180286. After I learn more English, I’ll work hard and make more films. – Zhang Ziyi

180287. Actually I ran away from school when I was 13. No one could find me, and the police were called. I was just hiding in a little thicket of grass at my school, and went to sleep. – Zhang Ziyi

180288. Absolutely not, because in acting I’ve found a domain that suits me perfectly. And that is so utterly rare. – Zhang Ziyi

180289. Obviously I’d love to work with any of these great directors because every time I’ve worked with them I’ve gained a tremendous amount as an actor. Each director has his own way of pushing you towards improving yourself. – Zhang Ziyi

180290. Today’s China is not in the least shut out from the rest of the world. Trends come to us from all over the world. And the Internet is really developed in China. We get news from all over the world. – Zhang Ziyi

180291. Zhang Yimou is always going to need young, pretty girls for his films. But I don’t really concern myself with what Zhang Yimou’s next starlet looks like. – Zhang Ziyi

180292. Wanting to be in a Western film won’t get me very far. Unless the opportunity arose, it doesn’t matter how much I want to be in one. But if an opportunity did arise, no actor would pass it up. – Zhang Ziyi

180293. I secretly think reality exists so we can speculate about it. – Slavoj Zizek

180294. Liberal democracy – as you know, in the old days, we were saying we want socialism with a human face. Today’s left effectively offers global capitalism with a human face, more tolerance, more rights and so on. So the question is, is this enough or not? Here I remain a Marxist: I think not. – Slavoj Zizek

180295. You could say, in a vulgar Freudian way, that I am the unhappy child who escapes into books. Even as a child, I was most happy being alone. This has not changed. – Slavoj Zizek

You may also like  180000 famous quotes part 161 - 160001 to 161000

180296. I agree with Sophocles: the greatest luck is not to have been born – but, as the joke goes on, very few people succeed in it. – Slavoj Zizek

180297. I – and I still consider myself, I’m sorry to tell you, a Marxist and a Communist, but I couldn’t help noticing how all the best Marxist analyses are always analyses of a failure. – Slavoj Zizek

180298. Communism will win. – Slavoj Zizek

180299. Without the communist oppression, I am absolutely sure I would now be a local stupid professor of philosophy in Ljubljana. – Slavoj Zizek

180300. When I really love someone, I can only show it by making aggressive and bad-taste remarks. – Slavoj Zizek

180301. What if the Soviet intervention was a blessing in disguise? It saved the myth that if the Soviets were not to intervene, there would have been some flowering authentic democratic socialism and so on. I’m a little bit more of a pessimist there. I think that the Soviets – it’s a very sad lesson – by their intervention, saved the myth. – Slavoj Zizek

180302. My instinct as a philosopher is that we are effectively approaching a multicentric world, which means we need to ask new, and for the traditional left, unpleasant questions. – Slavoj Zizek

180303. I am what you might call abstractly anti-capitalist. For instance, I am suspicious of the old leftists who focus all their hatred on the United States. What about Chinese neo-colonialism? Why are the left silent about that? When I say this, it annoys them, of course. Good! – Slavoj Zizek

180304. As far as I can remember, every dime I ever had went to something extravagant. I would rather spend more, buy fewer items and have them forever. – Rachel Zoe

180305. Truthfully, I’ve never seen myself as being too thin. Sometimes I’ll look at photos and be like, ‘Oh, that’s not a good look.’ But generally speaking, I’m not too thin. – Rachel Zoe

180306. We’ve had Audrey Hepburn, we’ve had Twiggy, we’ve had Veruschka, we’ve had Kate Moss. I’m trying to figure out why I am to blame for skinniness. – Rachel Zoe

180307. When you look like you stepped out of a catalog, that’s never good. People shouldn’t succumb to trend, they should interpret trend. – Rachel Zoe

180308. Sexiness should not be overt. Something shapeless that drapes across your hip, hangs off the shoulder; something that cowls in the front, drapes low in the back, that’s sexy. – Rachel Zoe

180309. It’s really unfair to working women in America who read celebrity news and think, ‘Why can’t I lose weight when I’ve had a baby?’ Well, everyone you’re reading about has money for a trainer and a chef. That doesn’t make it realistic. – Rachel Zoe

180310. I’ve always been obsessed with style and glamor and if I want anyone to get anything out of my book, it’s how we can all have them in our lives. – Rachel Zoe

180311. I think that sexiness should be in the subtleties. – Rachel Zoe

180312. I don’t think that people should wear dresses two sizes too small. I just think that sexiness is better left to the imagination. It’s just more tasteful. – Rachel Zoe

180313. Every other day there’s something – I’m dealing drugs, I’m starving people. I have never done a drug in my life. – Rachel Zoe

180314. I did not have a van, or wear Birkenstocks and tie-dyes. – Rachel Zoe

180315. A million thoughts went through my mind. What little mind I have. – Fuzzy Zoeller

180316. Every shot makes someone happy. – Fuzzy Zoeller

180317. I am little concerned with beauty or perfection. I don’t care for the great centuries. All I care about is life, struggle, intensity. – Emile Zola

180318. If I cannot overwhelm with my quality, I will overwhelm with my quantity. – Emile Zola

180319. If you ask me what I came into this life to do, I will tell you: I came to live out loud. – Emile Zola

180320. If you shut up truth, and bury it underground, it will but grow. – Emile Zola

180321. In my view you cannot claim to have seen something until you have photographed it. – Emile Zola

180322. One forges one’s style on the terrible anvil of daily deadlines. – Emile Zola

180323. Perfection is such a nuisance that I often regret having cured myself of using tobacco. – Emile Zola

180324. The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work. – Emile Zola

180325. The fate of animals is of greater importance to me than the fear of appearing ridiculous; it is indissolubly connected with the fate of men. – Emile Zola

180326. The thought is a deed. Of all deeds she fertilizes the world most. – Emile Zola

180327. The truth is on the march and nothing will stop it. – Emile Zola

180328. There are two men inside the artist, the poet and the craftsman. One is born a poet. One becomes a craftsman. – Emile Zola

180329. I am an artist… I am here to live out loud. – Emile Zola

180330. Those days if you drove cross country and you broke down on the side of the road, and the sign says 200 miles to the next gas station, you knew you were so screwed. – Rob Zombie

180331. Probably the biggest thing that surprises people is that I am obsessed with hockey. I grew up in the Boston area so I am obsessed with hockey since I was a little kid. – Rob Zombie

180332. By the time we got to MGM, and Lions Gate the movie was done there was nothing else to say. It was done. Just as at Universal, it was art by committee. – Rob Zombie

180333. I am like the Jack Nicholson of the Kings – every single game. If there was a game tonight I wouldn’t be here. I used to play hockey. That was my original thing. My first thing, I wanted to play professional hockey. – Rob Zombie

180334. I like 1977 because it is more primitive. If it were modern day, like one Universal guy was like wouldn’t they just use their cell phone? I guess he did not read that it was 1977 in the script. – Rob Zombie

180335. I remember, especially like when I was in high school, going to see like Dawn of the Dead and it was like mayhem in the theater and you could barely even watch the movie. It was so fun. – Rob Zombie

180336. I think it is good escapist entertainment even though it’s bad. – Rob Zombie

180337. I understand why some kid in his bedroom in Wisconsin thinks downloading songs couldn’t hurt anyone. True fans will buy the CD or go see the movie after downloading, but to say it doesn’t affect anyone – come on. – Rob Zombie

180338. I wanted it to be like a high quality, drive-in movie. – Rob Zombie

180339. It was like fighting with the MPAA… to me it was like this is an R easy… but it was NC 17 over and over and even with this cut they were like, you are right on the edge buddy, one more thing and it’s NC-17. – Rob Zombie

180340. It’d be like what would happen if Hollywood took over porno: ‘If we keep their clothes on and they didn’t have sex, we’d be able to sell it to a lot more people’. – Rob Zombie

180341. You know… the only person I really had to please after a point was the MPAA. Because Lions’ Gate was like, hey, whatever you can get away with is fine, we don’t care. – Rob Zombie

180342. NC-17 means that you get it in like 3 theaters. They won’t run the spots on MTV, won’t run the advertising. It’s the kiss of death so there was really no other choice. – Rob Zombie

180343. The hardest part was convincing people that I was serious. The people were like ‘you want to do this again’? – Rob Zombie

180344. The pirating thing is bad. The people it hurts the most are the ones you least think it hurts. It’s not the big Britney Spears albums that are being pirated; it’s the indie bands that don’t have two cents to their name. – Rob Zombie

180345. Things like that become a blur – shot at some soundstage, somewhere – that’s as much as I can remember. – Rob Zombie

180346. White Zombie was a bunch of kids with the worst equipment playing in a basement. But that is what is so great about it. There is no reason to think that you can’t do it. – Rob Zombie

180347. You might like it as a joke or because you liked it then, but there isn’t a whole new generation discovering Wham!. – Rob Zombie

180348. It’s never been about making money. – Rob Zombie

180349. Not so cold, some snow fell. I went inside the log cabin and said goodbye to Mother, she was so alike grandmother, just younger. – Anders Zorn

180350. Now, finally has the elevator arrived. The stairs was about to become a personal inferno. – Anders Zorn

180351. You can’t buy time or save it, common idioms notwithstanding. You can only spend it. – Eric Zorn

180352. There’s no sense talking about priorities. Priorities reveal themselves. We’re all transparent against the face of the clock. – Eric Zorn

180353. I have wit in my work and a sense of humor, but I do not use irony in any way. – John Zorn

180354. Like you have seven people with their hands up. I gotta make a choice. Y’know, that’s tough. Sometimes I gotta go with someone that has an idea and make several calls in a row, because they got an idea. – John Zorn

180355. And I try to be as diplomatic as I can, but it always ends up being a psychodrama up there on stage. – John Zorn

180356. As soon as you get a certain amount of attention, then everybody kinda wants to start taking pot shots at you. All your old friends that supported you don’t support you any more. – John Zorn

180357. Eye was a great discovery. He is one of the great vocalists of all time. – John Zorn

180358. For about seven years. I really like it there. There are a lot of great musicians. The scene is very open. A lot of stuff going on. People’s ears are really open, they are not closed. A lot of scenes here, people just get tunnel vision and are into one thing. – John Zorn

180359. Great musicians accept everything that they hear and find something good. They take what they like and they throw away what they don’t like. – John Zorn

180360. I don’t control it at all. It’s all up to the musicians in the group. They control it. They make all the cues, and they tell me what they want, and then I act like a mirroring device so that everyone can see what the cues are. – John Zorn

180361. I have about two or three people, we don’t have an office, we don’t even have a dedicated phone line. We do it out of our own homes, and we make it work. – John Zorn

180362. I put together the influences of my life in as clear a way as I possibly can, in the same way that Beethoven or Schoenberg or Bach put their influences together. – John Zorn

180363. I see myself and many artists like me as the torchbearers through these dark ages. – John Zorn

180364. I’m getting ready to write a piece now, and it’s been six months thinking about it, changing the instrumentation, changing the name, doing more reading. – John Zorn

180365. It breaks even. We lose ten, twenty grand every year. But then the people who are working say, Look, I’ll kick this back in, I don’t need to take this profit share. It’s very cooperative. – John Zorn

180366. I run around, I listen to a lot of music, go to a lot of concerts. And when I see someone that gases me, I try to go out of my way to involve them somehow in what I’m doing or get involved in what they’re doing. – John Zorn

180367. It’s a matter of keeping people on a spontaneous edge. – John Zorn

180368. One of the reasons I started Tzadik, which is my own label, is to keep things in print. I got tired of labels dropping things out of print when they don’t sell. – John Zorn

180369. That is a lot of the reason I do what I do, to really spread the word and spread information and turn people onto different things they may not be, y’know, aware of. That is what Naked City is certainly about. – John Zorn

180370. That was my challenge as a composer. Like with anything, to keep yourself interested in doing what you do, you set yourself challenges. So I said, Okay, I’ll try to write a hundred tunes in a year. – John Zorn

180371. That’s where I began to ask questions that maybe don’t have one specific answer. And the more people you get answers from, the richer the environment becomes. – John Zorn

180372. The idealists will always be in society, and we will survive. – John Zorn

180373. Well, in Japan, I have got a group of musicians that I have worked with a lot, that concentrate just on the hardcore stuff, say, that Naked City has been working on. We have like a repertoire of sixty songs now. – John Zorn

180374. When I’m writing, sometimes it gets to that place where I feel like the piece is writing itself and I’m trying not to get in the way. – John Zorn

180375. You can’t be idealistic in this world and not be crazy. – John Zorn

180376. You know, when we were kids, we had to go to a theater to see a movie. And then television came in and you had to wait until midnight to see the one you wanted to see. Now, all you’ve got to do is go to a store and buy it and you can watch it whenever you want! – John Zorn

180377. It’s a blast to watch. It’s a lot more interesting live than it is on record. I mean, it really is a theatrical event. It’s a sporting event! Cause you never know what’s gonna happen. – John Zorn

180378. Technology makes the world a new place. – Shoshana Zuboff

180379. The civilizing process has increased the distance between behavior and the impulse life of the animal body. – Shoshana Zuboff

180380. Activities that seem to represent choices are often inert reproductions of accepted practice. – Shoshana Zuboff

180381. As information technology restructures the work situation, it abstracts thought from action. – Shoshana Zuboff

180382. Awareness requires a rupture with the world we take for granted; then old categories of experience are called into question and revised. – Shoshana Zuboff

180383. I think up until the point when we started in the business, which was in the early ’70s, most of the humor was political. The smart humor was political satire. – David Zucker

180384. Everything about it worked, and I don’t mean just the movie, but in our experience, we realized there’s also a component of luck involved in this business. We had absolutely the most competent people in the studio working on the release and ad campaign. – David Zucker

180385. Quit now, you’ll never make it. If you disregard this advice, you’ll be halfway there. – David Zucker

180386. Our producer Jon Davison thought it would be a good idea to put in additional TV scenes. So, they sent me a tape of these additional TV scenes, and I watched them, and I didn’t think they were that great. I didn’t think it was worth putting them in. – David Zucker

180387. Our fathers were actually business partners in the same real-estate firm, and we got together and thought, How can we get a movie together and get distribution and create a new movie genre? We started by making satires of commercials. – David Zucker

180388. Oh yeah, I believe in God. I think there’s much more evidence that there is a God than that there isn’t. I don’t believe that Mother Theresa and Hitler go to the same place. – David Zucker

180389. It’s useless to try and make rhyme or reason of it, because one guy thinks one thing and the other guy sees a whole other thing. So I try not to take them too seriously. Lately I have them screened so I only read the positive ones. – David Zucker

180390. It didn’t happen every time for every movie. Ruthless People was a good movie, but we didn’t get a good release or marketing. They completely blew the opening. – David Zucker

180391. I’ve always thought those guys are really funny. And I love Dumb and Dumber, Kingpin and Mary. – David Zucker

180392. Sometimes, if you really want to try something original, you step a little too far out of bounds. I mean, there’s a market force that kind of unconsciously keeps you in line a little bit. – David Zucker

180393. I think we grew up thinking that the funniest things on TV were the old, serious movies. I always liked the Marx Brothers, but the thing that always made us laugh were movies like Zero Hour. That’s what inspired us. – David Zucker

180394. The only one that got through was Jimmy Walker, because he plays the gas station attendant. I mean, there’s nothing wrong with it, it’s just that we were kind of purists at the time, and we didn’t want any comedians. – David Zucker

180395. I think that came out of watching all those serious movies for all that time. If you watch a movie like Zero Hour, Sterling Hayden is pretty funny, and so are the guys in the cockpit. – David Zucker

180396. I think once we started directing separately – we each have different kinds of interests now, and the kinds of movies we want to do. I wouldn’t hold your breath for that one. – David Zucker

180397. I lose tons of stuff on the cutting room floor. For Scary Movie 3, for example, we had a lot of Matrix spoofs, a Hulk scene, and some of that stuff just doesn’t hold up – it’s too much plot, audiences just didn’t want to hear about it. – David Zucker

180398. I don’t think there has been any increase in sophistication in the audience. When people are aware of a concept that’s easy to understand, and there’s an actor who will attract them to the theater and it’s a movie that’s funny three-quarters of the time, it will be successful. – David Zucker

180399. I don’t take reviews very seriously, but in their totality I think they are representative of how the audience feels, and of what their reaction is. There’s always one guy who doesn’t get it. – David Zucker

180400. I don’t really know a lot of famous people. I’ve met a lot of famous people. If I ran into Tom Hanks today, I would have to remind him who I was and he would then remember me. But he wouldn’t come up to me and say, “Hi Dave!” – David Zucker

180401. I don’t know if I’d want to do that anymore, because you always get bigger laughs on college campuses. So, when the film plays in front of a city audience, you’ve probably cut too loosely. – David Zucker

180402. I believe in justice, maybe not in this life, but there has to be justice. And if there isn’t a God, I think it would be very depressing. I’d prefer to believe there is. – David Zucker

180403. Chevy Chase and Bill Murray – we thought those guys were funny. We love Bill Murray, but we didn’t think they were right for Airplane! because it would step on the joke if there was a known comedian. – David Zucker

180404. I would love to work with Adam Sandler. Because then all I’d have to do is just turn the camera on and off. – David Zucker

180405. There would always be a vote. There were always conflicts and arguments for years and years – that’s why we’re not together anymore. But there was always a vote. It was always two out of three. – David Zucker

180406. Tim Burton is underrated. I loved Big Fish, loved that movie, think it’s the best movie of the year, hands down. Really impressed with that. – David Zucker

180407. We didn’t realize it at the time, but the release date, the ad campaign and the poster are so important. – David Zucker

180408. We’re producing a movie now, ‘The Onion’ Movie, and it’s very difficult for me to be on the set. If I’m not right in the trenches, it’s very difficult for me to watch another director, because I’m not involved and it’s not exciting. – David Zucker

180409. What I would do is a 10-minute short of some kind on video, and if it’s good enough, you get it passed around town and just get some attention, so then they’ll read what you have. – David Zucker

180410. Woody Allen has done some excellent serious movies, too, like Crimes And Misdemeanors. Very overlooked movie, I think, and really his best. And currently I like Big Fish! – David Zucker

180411. You know, OJ was a really nice guy, and he knew his lines. He was nice to everybody on the set. He got to be a better actor, I thought, with every movie. – David Zucker

180412. So, it didn’t do well. But now when I talk to kids who are first seeing it, they’re surprised to hear the movie failed at the box office. Sometimes that’s what happens. – David Zucker

180413. It’s a growing trend. Viewers are our customers, but so are advertisers. And advertisers want different ways to reach our viewers. – Jeff Zucker

180428. These days, government employees are better off in almost every area: pay, benefits, time off, and security, on top of working fewer hours. They can thrive even in a down economy. – Mortimer Zuckerman

180429. Americans cannot maintain their essential faith in government if there are two Americas, in which the private sector’s work subsidizes the disproportionate benefits of this new public sector elite. – Mortimer Zuckerman

180430. For the baby boomer generation, a home is now seen not as the cornerstone of advancement but a ball and chain, restricting their ability and their mobility to move and seek out a job at another location. – Mortimer Zuckerman

180432. Millions of public workers have become a kind of privileged new class – a new elite, who live better than their private sector counterparts. Public servants have become the public’s masters. No wonder the public is upset. – Mortimer Zuckerman

180433. Natural erosion had reduced the critical barrier islands in the Gulf, the result of the destruction of some 300,000 acres of wetlands. This amounted to 30 miles of marshlands. – Mortimer Zuckerman

180435. These days the American dream of home ownership has turned into a nightmare for millions of families. They wake every day to the reality of a horrible decline in the value of the home that has meant so much to them. – Mortimer Zuckerman

180436. The most critical factor subduing the demand for housing is that home ownership is no longer seen as the great, long-term buildup in equity value it once was. – Mortimer Zuckerman

180437. One-half of life is luck; the other half is discipline – and that’s the important half, for without discipline you wouldn’t know what to do with luck. – Carl Zuckmayer

180438. The public is never wrong. – Adolph Zukor

180439. Rather than lose the public because television is here, wouldn’t it be smart to adopt television as our instrument? – Adolph Zukor

180446. For an event that was wholly created in the poisonous psychological warfare kitchens of the Second World War, run by the ministries of propaganda in many countries, not just by the British or the Americans, but also the Russians and undoubtedly the world Jewish organizations. – Ernst Zundel

180451. Had I been in Toronto, I would certainly have been killed in this attack. In the room where I normally sleep, the flames and the smoke and the soot is such that the gases would have killed me. – Ernst Zundel

180452. The trial of Ernst Zundel has gone down in Canadian history. – Ernst Zundel

180453. The unfortunate thing is, for the contents of the building I could not get any insurance anywhere in Canada. – Ernst Zundel

180454. They have accorded me my constitutional rights, and that is to their credit because the media hate campaign against me has been so intense and so vicious that it’s a miracle that the police have taken such a professional approach. – Ernst Zundel

180455. What we have to do now is to make the public at large aware that what we’re looking at is not a historical event but – and I have to be brutal and I am going to say it – a racket. – Ernst Zundel

180456. You cannot stoke the fires of prejudice against German people and then not find that somewhere, sometime down the road it doesn’t discharge. – Ernst Zundel

180457. You know, many people have called me, friends from the nationalist camp, revisionists and so on, from around the world, have called me over the years – and now again because of what happened – and they are all very cynical about the police and the authorities. – Ernst Zundel

180458. The reason why I have survived as long as I have survived is what my friends, comrades and supporters thought was an extraordinarily cautious approach. – Ernst Zundel

180459. I am, as a European, absolutely shocked by European people. I am also shocked by European nationalist people. They have allowed themselves to be so emasculated so silently. – Ernst Zundel

180476. I’ve been on shows that go for shock value. – Daphne Zuniga

180485. One must be convinced to convince, to have enthusiasm to stimulate the others. – Stefan Zweig

180486. Fate is never too generous even to its favorites. Rarely do the gods grant a mortal more than one immortal deed. – Stefan Zweig

180487. In history, the moments during which reason and reconciliation prevail are short and fleeting. – Stefan Zweig

180488. It would be foolhardy to count on the conscience of the world. – Stefan Zweig

180489. Never can the innate power of a work be hidden or locked away. A work of art can be forgotten by time; it can be forbidden and rejected but the elemental will always prevail over the ephemeral. – Stefan Zweig

180495. There is no sense to a sacrifice after you come to feel that it is a sacrifice. – Stefan Zweig

180499. Only the misfortune of exile can provide the in-depth understanding and the overview into the realities of the world. – Stefan Zweig

180500. Sometimes when we weep in the movies we weep for ourselves or for a life unlived. Or we even go to the movies because we want to resist the emotion that’s there in front of us. I think there is always a catharsis that I look for and that makes the movie experience worthwhile. – Edward Zwick

180501. To me this movie is about what is valuable. To one person it might be a stone; to someone else, a story in a magazine; to another, it is a child. The juxtaposition of one man obsessed with finding a valuable diamond with another man risking his life to find his son is the beating heart of this film. – Edward Zwick

180502. There is no reason why challenging themes and engaging stories have to be mutually exclusive – in fact, each can fuel the other. As a filmmaker, I want to entertain people first and foremost. If out of that comes a greater awareness and understanding of a time or a circumstance, then the hope is that change can happen. – Edward Zwick

180503. Samurai culture did exist really, for hundreds of years and the notion of people trying to create some sort of a moral code, the idea that there existed certain behaviors that could be celebrated and that could be operative in a life. – Edward Zwick

180504. It seems that almost every time a valuable natural resource is discovered in the world-whether it be diamonds, rubber, gold, oil, whatever-often what results is a tragedy for the country in which they are found. Making matters worse, the resulting riches from these resources rarely benefit the people of the country from which they come. – Edward Zwick

180505. I think it’s too easy often to find a villain out of the headlines and to then repeat that villainy again and again and again. You know, traditionally, America has always looked to scapegoat someone as the boogie man. – Edward Zwick

180506. I look at modern life and I see people not taking responsibility for their lives. The temptation to blame, to find external causes to one’s own issues is something that is particularly modern. I know that personally I find that sense of responsibility interesting. – Edward Zwick

180507. I have nothing against diamonds, or rubies or emeralds or sapphires. I do object when their acquisition is complicit in the debasement of children or the destruction of a country. – Edward Zwick

180508. There is something universal in the theme of a man trying to save his family in the midst of the most terrible circumstances. It is not limited to Sierra Leone. This story could apply to any number of places where ordinary people have been caught up in political events beyond their control. – Edward Zwick

180509. I don’t think movies can ever be too intense, but people have to understand why you’re showing them the things you are showing them. – Edward Zwick

180510. There is a segment of the American population that has been excluded from the national myth, and that should be redressed. – Edward Zwick

180511. I think one of the privileges of being a filmmaker is the opportunity to remain a kind of perpetual student. – Edward Zwick

180512. Every evening, I come home tired and have just enough energy to fill out the endless tax forms, to pay bills, not to let my house neglected and to hear the radio concert for an hour. – Fritz Zwicky

180513. I have a good idea every two years. Give me a topic, I will give you the idea! – Fritz Zwicky

180514. Mountains were once my big adventure but is is over since a long time; I still dream from the wonderful days sometimes, read also a few pages from a mountain book. But the thought of doing again active mountain climbing has faded. – Fritz Zwicky

180515. I soon became convinced… that all the theorizing would be empty brain exercise and therefore a waste of time unless one first ascertained what the population of the universe really consists of. – Fritz Zwicky

180516. It makes it difficult to decide which to go see, since no film about say, some tragic genocide in Africa is going to get a bad review even if it’s poorly made. – Terry Zwigoff

180517. That would be getting up at 5 am… I don’t understand why film’s shoot such brutal hours. I think it’d be worth it to not be so strictly cost-effective and have an 8 hour day. The film’s would benefit in the end. – Terry Zwigoff

180518. Well, that was certainly – to me, until we could film in Charles’ room, I didn’t even want to bother filming anything else. And in fact, I did hold off and that was the first thing we filmed. – Terry Zwigoff

180519. So I told Robert from the start that if we couldn’t get Charles and Max to take part, but especially Charles, that I didn’t want to make the film. So would he call his mother and talk to Charles and see if Charles would at all be interested. – Terry Zwigoff

180520. Luckily, he was in the process of moving to France at the time, anyway. But if he had stayed in the States, I don’t know how he would have handled that, because it was getting pretty crazy. I mean, a celebrity which he really did not welcome. And I can’t blame him. – Terry Zwigoff

180521. I was inspired to do anything I could to get out of what I was doing… today, I’m motivated to pay the bills. – Terry Zwigoff

180522. I think the other misconceptions when the film came out, he was very upset that it was so widely released and so widely seen. And neither one of us – well, I think I had hopes it would be, ’cause I really did think it was something special. – Terry Zwigoff

180523. I hope they get something of interest out of it, but I’d rather they all hate it and I like it, instead of vice versa… I make films to please myself first, and if the audience likes them, all the better. – Terry Zwigoff

180524. And I sense it was a rather constructed, almost half narrative fiction film in some ways. A lot of it was staged and manipulated to get those things in there that I knew to be strong. – Terry Zwigoff

180525. Whereas my producer literally worked on this thing for 10 years and because I gave that presenter credit to David Lynch, she to this day never gets credit. It really kills me. – Terry Zwigoff

180526. Because I found myself telling the story of his family to people without the visual aids that I was able to employ by filming them eventually. But I very much knew exactly what I was going to do. – Terry Zwigoff
