45394. You break her heart, I’ll break your neck. – Vin Diesel

45409. If you take my performance or my understanding of the role and my appreciation for story and then dress it in CGI, that I guess becomes an action film. – Vin Diesel

45410. If you’re the type of person who has to fulfill your dreams, you’ve gotta be resourceful to make sure you can do it. I came out to California when I was 21, thinking my New York credentials would take me all the way. I came back home a year later all dejected and a failure. – Vin Diesel

45411. It would be flattering to call it a modern Dirty Harry, but I think this film deals more with the loss of his wife than the traditional revenge vigilante films. – Vin Diesel

45416. Unfortunately, it happens all too seldom that you really disappear behind a work, that you are no longer audible as an interpreter. – Dietrich Fischer Dieskau

45419. You can’t do opera when already from the 10th row you can only see little dolls on the stage. In such an enormous space you can’t put much faith in the personal presence of the individual singer, which is reflected in facial expressions, among other things. – Dietrich Fischer Dieskau

45426. All music has to speak in some form or other. – Dietrich Fischer Dieskau

45428. Anyone who draws attention to himself as an individual, is viewed with suspicion. We acquired this tendency, of course, from America, and we must resist it: levelling, and imitation of what others are already doing. – Dietrich Fischer Dieskau

45429. Admittedly, it is really our duty, as artists, to hold up a mirror to our own era; but, on the other hand, these works have lives of their own, and they’re still alive today. – Dietrich Fischer Dieskau

45430. But the thing that will always occupy me the most is music. – Dietrich Fischer Dieskau

45431. But, on the other hand, if Schubert were alive today, he would find even richer fields to plow. – Dietrich Fischer Dieskau

45432. I came together with younger musicians and tried to pass on my own experiences. In the process, I always tried to maintain my curiosity and spontaneity. – Dietrich Fischer Dieskau

45433. If you only do little clusters – three or four songs by one, and another, and then yet another – you lose the opportunity to think your way into the composer’s mind, since, after all, most of these pieces are quite brief. – Dietrich Fischer Dieskau

45434. In fact, the element of play has an important role in my life, and I think that should be the case in the life of every artist. Our life is occupied with playing, whether we play an instrument or a role. – Dietrich Fischer Dieskau

45436. It is desirable that people make music on the breath, with the breath. – Dietrich Fischer Dieskau

45437. And what unity is to be had, at a time when orchestras are dying out, and when opera houses are about to close their doors; what’s going to come next – when nothing new in music, for the orchestra, is truly lasting: pieces are performed once, and then they’re thrown away. – Dietrich Fischer Dieskau

45438. Most women set out to try to change a man, and when they have changed him they do not like him. – Marlene Dietrich
