The conscious mind determines the actions, the unconscious mind determines the reactions; and the reactions are just as important as the actions.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
The four characteristics of humanism are curiosity, a free mind, belief in good taste, and belief in the human race.
E. M. Forster
I'm like a crockpot on low heat. My mind constantly comes up with ideas, but I abandon a lot of them after a week or two. It's the ones that keep coming to me, that keep picking up flavors, that haunt me, those are the ones that wind up getting written.
Laura Amy Schlitz
The thing I hate most in acting is asking permission to do things. What you really want to do is say, 'This is my need; this is what's going to get me further; this is what's going to be alive. I don't ever say, 'Do you mind if...?' I just come in and do it.
