HALLE BERRY ON ADJUSTING YOUR GOALS

“If you set out to do something and give it your all and it doesn’t work out, be willing to modify the goal slightly. Have the ability to look in another direction.   A small shift could guide you to the real purpose of your life.”

Halle Berry

TOM HANKS ON DISCIPLINE AND PASSION

“There isn’t any great mystery about me. What I do is glamorous and has an awful lot of white-hot attention placed on it. But the actual work requires the same discipline and passion as any job you love doing, be it as a very good pipe fitter or a highly creative artist.” – TOM HANKS

AMY ADAMS ON FINDING YOUR EDGE

“When I died my hair red the first time, I felt as if it was what nature intended. I have been accused of being a bit of a spitfire, so in that way, I absolutely live up to the stereotype. The red hair suits my personality. I was a terrible blonde!” -AMY ADAMS

MARTIN SCORSESE: FILMMAKING STRUGGLES

“There are two kinds of power you have to fight. The first is the money, and that’s just our system. The other is the people close around you, knowing when to accept their criticism, knowing when to say no.”

BRUCE LEE ON LIFE’S PATH

Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.

Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.

As you think, so shall you become.

If you love life, don’t waste time, for time is what life is made up of.

Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.

SIDNEY POITIER ON SELF EMPOWERMENT

“Okay listen, you think I’m so inconsequential? Then try this on for size. All those who see unworthiness when they look at me and are given thereby to denying me value – to you I say, I’m not talking about being AS GOOD as you. I hereby declare myself BETTER than you. ” SIDNEY POITIER

 

MORGAN FREEMAN ON GREAT ACTING

“It can be more effective to accomplish what you need to accomplish with the minimum effort. It’s what I learn from the great actors that I work with. Stillness. That’s all and that’s the hardest thing.” -Morgan Freeman
