I owe my looks to my mum-which was 90 percent of getting my first job. And, some people would argue, 90 percent of my entire career. – Helena Bonham Carter

29406. People say, ‘You’re still breast-feeding, that’s so generous.’ Generous, no! It gives me boobs and it takes my thighs away! It’s sort of like natural liposuction. I’d carry on breast-feeding for the rest of my life if I could. – Helena Bonham Carter

29407. That’s the thing with animated films – I often feel that puppets get the better parts compared to us normal actresses. – Helena Bonham Carter

29408. The animators are absolutely extraordinary. It’s mind-boggling. – Helena Bonham Carter

29409. The problems come when your personal life and relationships come under scrutiny in the press and often very uncomplimentary things are printed about you. – Helena Bonham Carter

29410. I love changing what I look like because I always feel super strange whenever I do watch something that I’m in. – Helena Bonham Carter

29411. Usually I’m frustrated when I look at my films and I don’t believe that I’ve made a real transformation beyond my usual sets of gestures and expressions. I still have this nagging feeling that it’s me, that I didn’t create a unique character. – Helena Bonham Carter

29412. No matter how many modern parts I do, people still refer to me as Mrs. Costume Drama. Fight Club is a studio pic, and I’ve done very few of those. I’ve got a feeling it’s going to change things for me. – Helena Bonham Carter

29413. You learn to rely on a few basic movements and use your voice to the greatest extent possible to convey your emotions. So there was a technical challenge there and a responsibility to create a character from behind the mask. – Helena Bonham Carter

29414. Tim also has enough confidence so that it always looks like a Tim Burton film, but it really is collaborative. You’re allowed to do it your way but of course he’s always going to choose his way. – Helena Bonham Carter

29415. You become very angry and depressed that you keep getting offered only these exceedingly demure and repressed roles. They’re so not me. That’s why films like Fight Club were so important to me because I think I confounded certain stereotypes and limited perceptions of what I could do as an actress. – Helena Bonham Carter

29416. You can actually have a pitch button, you know, to get people on pitch. – Helena Bonham Carter

29417. With the number of people I ignore, I’m lucky I work at all in this town. – Helena Bonham Carter

29418. I was sad that Corpse Bride was so short. I would’ve liked to have had her around for way longer. She doesn’t actually have that many scenes. – Helena Bonham Carter

29419. What I loved about playing the corpse is that obviously somebody else got to do the physical part. It appeals to the part of me that likes playing character parts and getting the chance to get away from my own physicality. – Helena Bonham Carter

29420. Multitasking? I can’t even do two things at once. I can’t even do one thing at once. – Helena Bonham Carter

29421. I was like one of those nauseatingly nice children. I was very, very well behaved and boring. – Helena Bonham Carter

29422. I’m not dead and I don’t have blue hair but some people say there are similarities. It is usually intolerable to watch myself onscreen but this time it’s fine. I think it’s beautiful and a real work of art. – Helena Bonham Carter

29423. I’m the kind of actor who has ventured into escaping from me. – Helena Bonham Carter

29424. It didn’t matter what you look like. You don’t have to get up at 5:30 in the morning and there’s a lot to be said for that. Corpse Bride can just play all my parts from now on and I’ll just do the voice. – Helena Bonham Carter

29425. It took me so many years to move out. I’m definitely a bit of a Peter Pan, reluctant to grow up. It all seemed really nice at home-why change it? Part of me would prefer not to have any responsibility whatsoever. – Helena Bonham Carter

29426. I hate this image of me as a prim Edwardian. I want to shock everyone. – Helena Bonham Carter

29427. It was weird because I was pregnant, throughout that so it was weird being a pregnant witch. I was in a really bad mood but luckily, because I sleep with the director, he just sort of scheduled me so I only had to do it two nights. – Helena Bonham Carter

29428. I have to struggle to change people’s perceptions of me. I grew very frustrated with the perception that I’m this shy, retiring, inhibited aristocratic creature when I’m absolutely not like that at all. I think I’m much more outgoing and exuberant than my image. – Helena Bonham Carter

29429. It would be nice to really shed the corsets. – Helena Bonham Carter

29430. Most of my relationships were people in the business. Having said that, me and Tim don’t really talk that much about work. He comes into my bit of the house every so often to vent but we don’t really have very high, cultured conversations. – Helena Bonham Carter

29431. It’s different when you’re an actor and playing a part, but when it’s just you, you feel immensely vulnerable have strangers prodding and prying. – Helena Bonham Carter

29432. Journalists are always calling my features Edwardian or Victorian, whatever that means. I am small, and people were smaller in those times. I’m pale and sickly-looking. I look fragile-like a doll. But sometimes I just wish I had less of a particular look, one that was more versatile. – Helena Bonham Carter

29433. I think I’ve still got a bit of a sado-masochistic streak in me, because if I’m not going to be restricted by corsets and covered in lace, then I still wind up wearing an ape-mask over my face. I do wonder how I get myself in these situations! – Helena Bonham Carter

29434. It was a challenge to be able to create a character without being able to use one’s normal set of expressions. All the rubber and makeup attached to your face left you with only a modest range of facial movements. – Helena Bonham Carter

29435. Famous people come up to me, but I don’t know who they are because my sight is so bad. It’s always at the pool of the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills when I don’t have my lenses in and my glasses are in my room. – Helena Bonham Carter

29436. I drink booze, I smoke, and I’m hooked on caffeine. I actually have been known to swear at times and belch and even raise my voice when provoked. And I’m not physically repressed! – Helena Bonham Carter

29437. I enjoy those small chats you have when people come up and talk to you about your work. It only involves a few seconds of effort to be nice to those people, and I am very grateful for the kind words that people have taken the trouble to express to me in person. – Helena Bonham Carter

29438. Because I sleep with him he asked me to audition, you know? – Helena Bonham Carter

29439. I also get fed up with the fact that casting agents and directors have this impression of me as being frail and petite. I find it very patronizing. I’m quite beefy and strong. I was a gymnast in school and I have lots of muscles. – Helena Bonham Carter

29440. All the ancient classic fairy tales have always been scary and dark. – Helena Bonham Carter

29441. I don’t think kids have a problem with death. It’s us older ones who are nearer to it, that start being frightened. – Helena Bonham Carter

29796. If you’re doing something new you’ve got to have a vision. You’ve got to have a perspective. You’ve got to have some north star you’re aiming for, and you just believe somehow you’ll get there, which kind of gets to the passion point. – Steve Case

29797. I was not an outstanding student. I did a reasonable amount of work. I got generally good – pretty good grades, but I was not that passionate about getting straight A’s. – Steve Case

29831. To establish justice and to promote the general welfare, America does not need the abortion license. – Robert Casey

29850. Success is having to worry about every damn thing in the world, except money. – Johnny Cash

29851. You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space. – Johnny Cash

29852. I start a lot more songs than I finish, because I realize when I get into them, they’re no good. I don’t throw them away, I just put them away, store them, get them out of sight. – Johnny Cash

29863. I’ve flown out of character so many times. In that sense I’ve been lucky, because I’ve been given the liberty to do just about anything I’ve wanted to do in my lifetime. – June Carter Cash

29865. For the last 20 months, I’ve just been going from one hospital to another. – June Carter Cash

29866. He’s just like my father that way-my father just adored my mother and let her do whatever she wanted. John’s like that. He’s a very rare man, a very good man, and I’ve had a good life with him. I’m proud to be walking in the wake of Johnny’s fame. – June Carter Cash

29867. I chose to be Mrs. Johnny Cash in my life. I decided I’d allow him to be Moses and I’d be Moses’ brother Aaron, picking his arms up and padding along behind him. – June Carter Cash

29870. We always had Packards, until the war, when they stopped making them; then we had a Cadillac. – June Carter Cash

29871. I was never looking back in regret. I never thought, Oh, why didn’t I become an actress? or Why did I just go paddling along after John? I’ve always walked along right by his side, and he’s always supported everything I do. – June Carter Cash

29872. I stayed in submission to my husband, and he allowed me to do anything I wanted to. I felt like I was lucky to have that kind of romance. – June Carter Cash

29874. There’s a lot of heartache because you don’t always win. You need loads of determination. – Pat Cash

29880. And I kind of said to myself if I get my voice back I’m not going to take back the old anxiety about it and just focus on the limitations. I’m really going to enjoy it. – Rosanne Cash

29889. Yeah, I was in the phase for the last ten years or so where every record I made I said OK, that’s the last one, I don’t want to record anymore, I don’t want to do this any more, I don’t want to have a public life. – Rosanne Cash

29890. I am so sick of reading about another car bomb, another suicide bomber, another 10, 20, 30, 70, 100 people dead in a day, both Americans and Iraqis. – Rosanne Cash

29894. When my dad died a lot of songs came, and they’re still coming. – Rosanne Cash

29896. Once your kids get older and get out of the house, it’s not like it stops. They’re on the phone with me every day; I’m intimately involved in their problems. – Rosanne Cash

29897. I think it is wrong that we went against The U.N. and that we have alienated our allies and invaded a country that hasn’t threatened us, that it is a pre-emptive strike. – Rosanne Cash

29898. My record label is treating me like I’m a new artist, which is exciting after all this time. – Rosanne Cash

29900. It is the people who scream the loudest about America and Freedom who see to be the most intolerant for a differing point of view. – Rosanne Cash

29901. But there’s nothing that gives me more thrill than when I’m writing and a couplet works. I find the right rhyme, or it’s just perfect. There’s nothing that exciting. – Rosanne Cash

29902. If a relationship is founded on love it doesn’t end. – Rosanne Cash

29903. The new record started out being about loss, but it’s morphed into being about how relationships go on even though one person is not in a body anymore. – Rosanne Cash

29904. I was down with Lucinda Williams and Mary Chapin-Carpenter. We did an acoustic tour, just the three of us, three chicks and three guitars. – Rosanne Cash

29905. The key to change… is to let go of fear. – Rosanne Cash

29906. Well, the first year I lost my voice I didn’t mind so much because I was going to have a baby and I was distracted with him anyway, I didn’t even think about it that much, well, OK, this is what’s happening. – Rosanne Cash

29907. I cannot say to a person who suffers injustice, ‘Wait.’ Perhaps you can. I can’t. And having decided that I cannot urge caution I must stand with him. – Sandra Casey Cason

29911. I alone, as the sharer of their way of life, presented a replica of childhood. – Neal Cassady

29912. Why do people so love to wander? I think the civilized parts of the World will suffice for me in the future. – Mary Cassatt

29913. I used to go and flatten my nose against that window and absorb all I could of his art. It changed my life. I saw art then as I wanted to see it. – Mary Cassatt

29914. I think that if you shake the tree, you ought to be around when the fruit falls to pick it up. – Mary Cassatt

29915. You must be willing to risk everything to really express it all. – John Cassavetes

29916. The most difficult thing in the world is to reveal yourself, to express what you have to. As an artist, I feel that we must try many things – but above all we must dare to fail. You must be willing to risk everything to really express it all. – John Cassavetes

29917. No matter how old you get, if you can keep the desire to be creative, you’re keeping the man-child alive. – John Cassavetes

29919. Well, I think that people are smart enough to understand the difference between a movie and real life. – Nick Cassavetes

29920. My Mom and Dad did it pretty good, so I know it can work. The foremost thing I would say about working with Robin and Sean is that they were devoted to this project and devoted to their characters. You can’t ask for any more from talented actors like that. – Nick Cassavetes

29921. We do have a problem in this country. You can either make a movie and ignore that, or you can acknowledge it and say, this is the water that we’re living in. You know this – the movie lives in this – it’s centered around this particular problem, and I chose to acknowledge it. – Nick Cassavetes

29922. My daughter, when she was a week old, was diagnosed with congenital heart disease. For the past thirteen years, she’s had four major heart surgeries. She’s a candidate for – and must have – heart replacement surgery in order to have a long life. – Nick Cassavetes

29926. The truth is, no matter how trying they become, babies two and under don’t have the ability to make moral choices, so they can’t be bad. That category only exists in the adult mind. – Anne Cassidy

29927. Seeing to it that a youngster grows up believing not just in the here and now but also in the grand maybes of life guarantees that some small yet crucial part of him remains forever a child. – Anne Cassidy

29928. In California, of all places, entertainment is the key to a vibrant economy. If we do not develop young adults capable of entering that world, the financial base of this state is sure to suffer and impact all of us. – David Cassidy

29929. I’ve been able to go on and have a successful career on Broadway and certainly the last five years in Las Vegas have been amazing. – David Cassidy

29930. I have an audience that goes from kids to seventy year olds. – David Cassidy

29931. I don’t play nostalgia acts. I don’t play nostalgia shows. – David Cassidy

29932. For me to go back and to play for audiences some of whom have been following me for thirty years and some who have found me in the last five or six years, that’s really an interesting thing. I have an audience that goes from kids to seventy year olds. – David Cassidy

29937. I had a kind of Dickensian childhood. – Shaun Cassidy

29939. The propensity to do good things is a choice. – Shaun Cassidy

29940. I’m not a big fan of religion for that reason. But I am a true believer in God, and I have great faith, and I think that a spiritual connection with something is a really important part of our experience. That doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with the church. – Shaun Cassidy

29941. The other salient characteristic of the Declaration is its universality: it applies to all human beings without any discrimination whatever; it also applies to all territories, whatever their economic or political regime. – Rene Cassin

29942. The Covenant of the League of Nations had envisaged sponsoring only the protection of certain categories of men: national minorities and populations of territories controlled by other countries. – Rene Cassin

29958. The only thing that is real is the being in you that is going to die. – Carlos Castaneda

29959. To achieve the mood of a warrior is not a simple matter. It is a revolution. To regard the lion and the water rats and our fellow men as equals is a magnificent act of a warrior’s spirit. It takes power to do that. – Carlos Castaneda

29960. The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same. – Carlos Castaneda

29961. A man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting. – Carlos Castaneda

29962. Look at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves this crucial question: Does this path have a heart? If it does, then the path is good. If it doesn’t, it is of no use. – Carlos Castaneda

29963. All paths are the same, leading nowhere. Therefore, pick a path with heart! – Carlos Castaneda

29964. The nice thing is that, at least in Los Angeles, I’m known as a character actor and I do auditions for other things besides just cartoon shows. – Dan Castellaneta

29965. It’s a different way of getting across an emotion. You’re trying to get it across to the animator because the animator is inspired by the voicetrack in terms of how to animate the character. – Dan Castellaneta

29966. It’s hard to find a play that’s right for me to do. Rather than waiting around for the right script to come along, I decided to write one myself. – Dan Castellaneta

29967. It’s the cushiest job, but some lines are so funny that I crack up. – Dan Castellaneta

29968. It’s the weirdest thing. When you go into acting, you expect to be a huge star and to be recognized… It did happen, but not in the way you expect it to… In L.A., I’m just another character actor. – Dan Castellaneta

29969. One of my favorite episodes was the one in which Homer grew hair. That was a very unique episode, since there was a gay secretary, but that wasn’t even the issue of the show-the issue was Homer’s image changing because he had hair. – Dan Castellaneta

29970. The humor is essentially dark for a cartoon and sophisticated. But at the same time, being a cartoon gives the writers more freedom than in a normal sitcom. It always pushes the line that, despite human failings, the Simpsons are really decent people. – Dan Castellaneta

29971. The Simpsons can go anywhere in the world and not worry about any budgetary issues. However, even when the show has had its run, I think the characters can go on in perpetuity. – Dan Castellaneta

29972. To many, Homer may appear lazy and a loser, but he’s just much misguided. He’s boorish, sure, but well meaning and, I guess, the one thing we have in common is the pursuit of lousy diets. – Dan Castellaneta

29973. The voice doesn’t take a lot of effort now, but in the beginning it was hard to try to find a voice. The one I settled on was just easier to do for a half-hour. – Dan Castellaneta

29975. It is better to watch things then to do them. – Dan Castellaneta

29976. Sometimes the only way you can feel good about yourself is by making someone else look bad. And I’m tired of making other people feel good about themselves. – Dan Castellaneta
