About James

Alex, Quotable Quotes for $2,000!

=================================================================

"Don't wait for the dawn to arrive, search for the sun while it is still dark!"

===========================================================

Nobody said anything was easy. Life's not easy. Look at what's going on in Syria, for example. We can be thankful that that is not happening in our countries right now. But networking is an important part of putting things together and making things happen, and that is particularly true in this business. And what I have suggested is not that much different than looking for a job on an Internet Web site.

"We do these things not because they are easy, but because they are hard"
-John F. Kennedy, Rice University, Sept. 12, 1962

And whether it is putting someone on the moon or getting a role that no one else thought was possible, or a movie made against all odds, that is what we choose to do because we are artists and our souls will not let us escape that destiny.

=================================================================

"Life has a way of showing us our truth path even when we don't know what it is."

================================================================

Brilliance is often like a block of wood. It sits there waiting for the proper wood carver to start whittling until its hidden aspects are found. You may want to stop carving turkey, and start slicing on the wood. By the way, I believe this is what is often called writer's block (of wood)! ;-)

=================================================================

"Language is the essence of life and that which differentiates us from creatures of lesser intelligence. I'm sorry, but I will leave the art of the mime for others."

=================================================================

When I see a piece of great art, I am in awe. When I see a beautiful lady, I am inspired. I have learned that, to remain silent in the presence, virtual or otherwise, of either great art or great beauty, is a great mistake.

=================================================================

“Torches and towers, gone long ago...."

=================================================================

"There is nothing in this world more beautiful than a smile on a lady's face."
