quote by Bell Hooks

All of us in the academy and in the culture as a whole are called to renew our minds if we are to transform educational institutions-and society-so that the way we live, teach, and work can reflect our joy in cultural diversity, our passion for justice, and our love of freedom.

— Bell Hooks

I studied at the Budapest Academy of Theatrical Arts for four years and emerged with a degree.

Without a decisive naval force we can do nothing definitive.

I was invited to join the newly established Central Chemical Research Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 1954 and was able to establish a small research group in organic chemistry, housed in temporary laboratories of an industrial research institute.

You will also allow me to thank the Academy for inviting me to lecture in Stockholm, for its hospitality, and for the opportunity afforded me for admiring the charm of your people and the beauty of your country.

When I first encountered the name of the city of Stockholm, I little thought that I would ever visit it, never mind end up being welcomed to it as a guest of the Swedish Academy and the Nobel Foundation.

Most of all, I want to thank my father, up there, the man who when I said I wanted to be an actor, he said, 'Wonderful. Just have a back-up profession like welding.'

When it comes to Iran and ISIS, the enemy of your enemy is your enemy!

Academies that are founded at public expense are instituted not so much to cultivate men's natural abilities as to restrain them.

You see something you like?

No one had ever called me unnatural before, except for the time I put ketchup on a taco. But seriously, we'd been out of salsa, so what else was I supposed to do?

The (Academy Award) ceremonies are a two-hour meat parade, a public display with contrived suspense for economic reasons.

Naturally, I was thrilled but being the first year, the Academy Awards had no background or tradition, and it naturally didn’t mean what it does now. Had I known then what it would come to mean in the next few years, I’m sure I’d have been overwhelmed. At the time, I think I was more thrilled over meeting Douglas Fairbanks.

The only thing better than imagining Dimitri carrying me in his arms was imagining him shirtless while carrying me in his arms.

None of you appreciate me. Why is it so hard to believe that I could make a real contribution in these dark rimes?

You're only two years older than me, darling. Where have you been all my life?

I run an academy in Spain for young footballers who are released by their clubs and who, in my opinion, deserve a second chance. It is a rewarding job for me, but one that also reveals many of the faults in the English game.

White people are very good at acting like they're not racist.

They deserve an Academy Award for that.

I would like for this moment to be for that kid out there who feels like she doesn't fit in anywhere. You do. Stay weird. Stay different, and then when it's your turn and you are standing on this stage please pass the same message along.

You forgot my first lesson: don't hesitate.

The other problem in my life is Dimitri.

He's the one who killed Natalie, and he's a total badass. He's also pretty good-looking. Okay—more than good-looking. He's hot—like, the kind of hot that makes you stop walking on the street and get hit by traffic.

I'm really not good with impulse control.

Unlike most youngsters who have school as their second home where they meet and make friends, for me playtime has been at the Gopichand Badminton Academy in Hyderabad. When I am not playing a tournament, my days are spent at the Academy with my coaches, physiotherapists and colleagues, who are like family. We laugh and have so much fun.

It's a scientific fact that gratitude reciprocates.

I fought against her, trying to mount some kind of defense, but it was like fighting Dimitri on crack.

I learned to read at the age of five, in Brother Justiniano's class at the De la Salle Academy in Cochabamba, Bolivia. It is the most important thing that has ever happened to me.

The 1911 pistol remains the service pistol of choice in the eyes of those who understand the problem. Back when we audited the FBI academy in 1947, I was told that I ought not to use my pistol in their training program because it was not fair.
