Most Powerful Cecile quotations
What I learned with Cecil Taylor was strategy and survival and how to resist temptations and resist getting discouraged.
I want to be the Cecil B. DeMille of science fiction.
I've mainly been in dramas, so this is one of my first comedy kind of performances in Cecil B. Demented.
I think I came across Cecil Taylor a bit later, in 65 or 66.
That really impressed me - Cecil Taylor is an amazing character... Both his music and the way he approaches the instrument are astonishing.
And when I met Cecil Taylor it was a complete transformation of musical identities. All the tenets that I had grown up with were thrown out the window.
Cecil Castellucci is writing Shade, who is the perfect writer for it.
I love her young adult stuff, and it's pretty hardcore and visceral, so I knew she was going to bring that to the book.
You know what we can be like: see a guy and think he's cute one minute, the next minute our brains have us married with kids, the following minute we see him having an extramarital affair. By the time someone says, 'I'd like you to meet Cecil,' we shout, 'You're late again with the child support!'
Here is the operating motto of the Obama White House: 'So let it be written, so let it be done!' Like Yul Brynner's Pharaoh Ramses character in Cecil B. DeMille's 'The Ten Commandments,' the demander in chief stands with arms akimbo issuing daily edicts to his constitution-subverting minions.
I worked with Cecil B DeMille quite a few times.
I had starred in more than 30 successful films, six in a row directed by Cecil B. De Mille.
I saw [ that I and my father, Cecil end our careers with 319 home runs] after I retired. It was just weird. With all the games we played, neither one of us could hit one more home run? Obviously, it was supposed to go that way. It's a pretty cool thing, I guess.
I had a fantastic teacher in high school.

I was talking to Cecil [Castellucci], who writes Shade, and I was saying to her, and she was saying the same thing, that I'm not even the same person who wrote the first issue of Doom Patrol, and that was six months ago. I'm a totally different person now, already. It's weird to look back at stuff, but it's an honor that there's a legacy of people who still keep it in their heads. It's really cool!
Normal people, fear the day their parents die.
Screwed up people, fear that their parents are going to live forever. Showing up at your house at weird hours of the night, smelling all funny, with a bunch of their friends. Hey boy, this is Harold, Cecil and Dicky. Dicky lost his wife about a year ago. I hear Erin made cookies. Where can I put my shoes ? If that doesn't scare you, you're not human.
My brother, Cecil Edward Chesterton, was born when I was about five years old;

For William Cecil and others in Elizabeth's Council, whose sense of Catholic conspiracy and threat governed their political thinking, England's security lay in the creation of a united and Protestant British Isles, which could stand alone, ready to resist invaders. Divine providence had set the islands apart from the rest of the world by encircling seas, 'a little world by itself'.

How long could you love a woman who didn't love you, Cecil? A woman who didn't love me? Oh, all my life!
It is obvious enough for the reader to conclude, "She loves young Emerson.
" A reader in Lucy's place would not find it obvious. Life is easy to chronicle, but bewildering to practice, and we welcome "nerves" or any other shibboleth that will cloak our personal desire.

He scooped up my arm, swung me round.
“Let go, Cecil,” I said. “I’ve a strange dislike of being forced.” “But Briony,” he said, “I’m so full of good spirits. I could walk to London, I think!” Why didn’t he?
You don’t mind when he stares at you.
” Cecil jerked his head toward Eldric. "He doesn’t stare,” I said. “He looks.
The boy shall have a proper beating,' said Cecil.
'But I beat him already,' I said, 'and don't tell me I didn't do it properly. I'm touchy about these things.
