Action, reaction, motivation, emotion, all have to come from the characters. Writing a love scene requires the same elements from the writer as any other.

Nora Roberts

When written in Chinese, the word "crisis" is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represents opportunity.

John F. Kennedy

Basically the children who watch it just see the little characters they love, and so they're not discerning about whether it looks great or it's a great story or anything.

Don Bluth

I am the common man. I'm polite, I love my family and I play by the rules. And sometimes I get pushed around. That's my lifestyle, and that's what I try to bring to characters.

Eugene Levy

All cartoon characters and fables must be exaggeration, caricatures. It is the very nature of fantasy and fable.

Walt Disney

Dreams are the touchstones of our characters.

Henry David Thoreau

I start drawing, and eventually the characters involve themselves in a situation. Then in the end, I go back and try to cut out most of the preachments.

Dr. Seuss

You can't have virtue without sin. What I'm after is having my characters' virtues defined by how they operate in a very sinful environment. That's how you test people.

Frank Miller

My books are primarily plot driven but the best plot in the world is useless if you don't populate them with characters that readers can care about.

Jeffery Deaver

Batman and Superman are very different characters but they're both iconic and elemental. Finding the right story for them both is the key.

Christopher Nolan

A lot of my work has to do with not allowing my characters to have an ego in a way that the stomach doesn't have an ego when it's wanting to throw up. It just does it.

Matthew Barney

I like repressed characters. That gives me a lot of freedom to make a lot of different choices through subtleties.

Jeremy Renner

From Ernest Hemingway's stories, I learned to listen within my stories for what went unsaid by my characters.

Nadine Gordimer

I've never really understood that. It's a funny thing; people sometimes accuse us of condescending to our characters somehow-that to me is kind of inexplicable.

Joel Coen

All the characters I play are all inside of me in a way, and they're all different, the darkness, the lightness, whatever that is.

Alexander Skarsgard

Neither sex, without some fertilization of the complimentary characters of the other, is capable of the highest reaches of human endeavor.

Jean-Paul Sartre

If you will practice being fictional for a while, you will understand that fictional characters are sometimes more real than people with bodies and heartbeats.

Richard Bach

Each morning my characters greet me with misty faces willing, though chilled, to muster for another day's progress through the dazzling quicksand the marsh of blank paper.

John Updike

The language fictional characters use is chosen for effect, at least if the author is concentrating.

John M. Ford

Star Trek characters never go shopping.

Doug Coupland

It always takes awhile to find out who the characters are.

Rene Auberjonois

What I remember myself from films, and what I love about films, is specific scenes and characters.

Harmony Korine

Never argue with your characters; they know themselves better than you do.

Laurell K. Hamilton

Dr. Larry and Viki are the only original characters left on the show.

Michael Storm

It's really about, oh come on, this guy wouldn't say that or he wouldn't do that, you know, it's about the characters, about the story, about the situation.

Walter Hill

I think I'm drawn to characters with complexity or who are under duress in some way and have some conflict going on.

Emily Blunt

There are too many souls of wood not to love those wooden characters who do indeed have a soul.

Jean Cocteau

Sometimes the characters I find the most compelling are in independent movies. With independent scripts people can take more challenges.

Brittany Snow

Parents give birth to the body of their children, but not always to their characters.

African Proverbs

I've been very lucky in the characters I've chosen. Up until last year I was a nobody. I did jobs I booked because I needed to put food in my mouth.

Kristen Bell

I try to build a full personality for each of our cartoon characters - to make them personalities.

Walt Disney

Don't think for a moment that I'm really like any of the characters I've played. I'm not. That's why it's called 'acting'.

Leonardo DiCaprio

Ever since I was really little, I've had characters that were in my mind.

Terry Goodkind

I have friends who wear Star Wars costumes and act like the characters all day. I may not be that deep into it, but there's something great about loving what you love and not caring if it's unpopular.

Kristen Bell

I do what I do because of Walt Disney - his films and his theme park and his characters and his joy in entertaining.

John Lasseter

My comedy does not come from a place of deep cynicism, and I tend to play characters who are naive in some way.

Anna Faris

Travel provided many interesting experiences, but perhaps the most useful lesson I learned was that I really had no proficiency for learning the thousands of characters of the written Chinese language.

Eric Allin Cornell

We've carried that over into the visual development as well. We've designed quite an exotic cast of characters, but the last thing we want is to dictate to the players how their PCs should look. What we want to do is inspire.

Sam Wood

I'm a geeky toy collector, and to have toys of your own characters is unbelievably cool.

Craig McCracken

Aaron Echolls is one of the best characters that I've ever played.

Harry Hamlin

Television provides the opportunity for an ongoing story - the opportunity to meld the cast and the characters and a world, and to spend more time there.

David Lynch

A lot of my characters in all of my books have a self-destructive urge. They'll do precisely the thing that they know is wrong, take a perverse delight in doing the wrong thing.

Richard Russo

All the great writers root their characters in true human behaviour.

Ben Kingsley

It's sad that women characters have lost so much ground in popular movies. Didn't 'Thelma and Louise' prove that women want to see women doing things on film? Thelma and Louise were in a classic car; they were being chased by cops; they shot up a truck - and women loved it.

Robin Quivers

Science fiction writers put characters into a world with arbitrary rules and work out what happens.

Rudy Rucker

Testing of self is a regular part of our own lives, so it seems natural to make it a part of the lives of my characters, as well, albeit on a much different level.

Terry Brooks

When the venture has been made of dealing with historical events and characters, it always seems fair towards the reader to avow what liberties have been taken, and how much of the sketch is founded on history.

Charlotte Mary Yonge

I like doing them and they're ridiculous and the actors can improvise a lot, and they don't have to be really realistic characters that hit a very specific tone as in a feature film. They're really fun, I want to make more of them definitely.

Jim Jarmusch

He always describes his characters' voices and their physique so brilliantly. As people have said, they are cartoons, caricatures. They're grotesques really.

Simon Callow

My job is to help the functioning of the story, not to draw attention to myself, but to make my characters function within the story, to work for the benefit of the story, to make the whole thing work.

Jeffrey Jones

If you got a good imagination, a lot of confidence and you kind of know what you are saying, then you might be able to do it. I know a lot of colorful characters at home that would make great actors.

Jason Statham

The relationship between reader and characters is very difficult. It is even more peculiar than the relationship between the writer and his characters.

Guillermo Cabrera Infante

I like working closely with artists. I think that's very important in fantasy and science fiction - the visual aspect of the worlds and the characters.

Margaret Weis

I think the sense of community that exists with all the characters - that's the answer. The fact that they have found a family in their friends. It does give some depth and meaning to their lives.

Randy Harrison

That is what I define as a novel: something that has a beginning, a middle and an end, with characters and a plot that sustain interest from the first sentence to the last. But that is not what I do at all.

Guillermo Cabrera Infante

I don't much believe in the idea of characters. I write with words, that is all. Whether those words are put in the mouth of this or that character does not matter to me.

Guillermo Cabrera Infante

It is for the latter that I always wanted to be an actor: to play characters who are always on the move.

Tony Curtis

My fictitious characters will take the bit between their teeth and gallop off and do something that I hadn't counted on. However, I always insist on dragging them back to the straight and narrow.

Colleen McCullough

Once I've got the first draft down on paper then I do five or six more drafts, the last two of which will be polishing drafts. The ones in between will flesh out the characters and maybe I'll check my research.

Colleen McCullough

My characters have undergone the same process of simplification as the colors. Now that they have been simplified, they appear more human and alive than if they had been represented in all their details.

Joan Miro

I only work with actors who take full responsibility for their characters.

Jonathan Demme

My characters aren't losers. They're rebels. They win by their refusal to play by everyone else's rules.

Harold Ramis

My father was always very interested in space. I watch Star Trek and all those things, but I always had a different picture in my mind... maybe closer to Alien. I don't see it in space as much as I do see it in different planets, with each having its own strange characters.

Sigourney Weaver

I try to always stretch myself to fit the characters that have been presented.

Kathy Bates

I would take lots of falls and you know, get shot three or four times and this sort of thing, so all that sort of stuff. And there are tussles with various characters. I like that kind of thing.

Marton Csokas

Psychology is the science of the intellects, characters and behavior of animals including man.

Edward Thorndike

This is one of his most human and most amusing and witty novels. The characters are very Indian. I decided that I wanted to do a comedy, so this was just the right one.

Ismail Merchant

All the characters and plots were predetermined. Games make bad plots.

Margaret Weis

It can certainly happen that characters in more sophisticated stories can "take over" as they develop and change the author's original ideas. Well, it certainly happens to me at times.

Margaret Mahy

One of the ways I think I gain fodder for characters is by watching people.

Edie Falco

I couldn't do any of my other characters, you know? But I could have done the lady. Church Lady's Malibu Beach party is an idea I have for a movie, too. Yes.

Dana Carvey

There are certainly times when my own everyday life seems to retreat so the life of the story can take me over. That is why a writer often needs space and time, so that he or she can abandon ordinary life and "live" with the characters.

Margaret Mahy

I came across awful characters when I got some kind of status and came to Hollywood. Then you have directors trying to sleep with you, assuming that you will do things because of the way you dress.

Stacey Dash

But I also wanted to give them an intelligent emotional journey, without having to suspend reality - to be able to look at those characters and see reasons for the relationships and why what happens happens.

Graeme Murphy

But I guess I like playing flawed guys 'cause it gives a place for the characters to go.

Aaron Eckhart

It's more like can I build a group of characters and can I tell some universal truths that feel real and aren't formulaic in the spirit of filmmakers gone by who've told American stories that were personal and universal as well.

Cameron Crowe

I haven't seen the film yet because I just got in from London. In the scenes where the two characters are bantering with each other, it is like bobbing at the net in tennis.

Albert Finney

In a way, the characters often do take over.

Margaret Mahy

Storylines are how characters create the plots involved in their stories.

Chelsea Quinn Yarbro

When you're working with a smaller budget I suppose one of the things that has to be in your mind when you are writing is that you have to keep the characters down to a minimum.

Atom Egoyan

I once knew a house rather like The Land of Smiles - an old house occupied by a varied collection of young people, mainly students. However none of these people were true models for the characters in the book, though their way of life may have been.

Margaret Mahy

We're showing kids a world that is very scantily populated with women and female characters. They should see female characters taking up half the planet, which we do.

Geena Davis

And I'd like to believe that's true, you know, kind of showing gay people in this kind of light and - where it's not about that, it's just about the characters for the first time, like those shows were.

Sean Hayes

You've either got to find a way to make your continuing characters insteresting without making them maudlin or overwrought, or you've got to put more emphasis on the suspects.

Jane Haddam

It's very witty and it's great to see teenage characters have control that way. And you can actually hear about sex and pot and it's okay, it's not completely bad and you can't say that to teenagers.

Caroline Dhavernas

The man I lived with is a Christian, so I would talk to him about it. What would this person do in the Bible? What's the story around this person? Generally, when people talk about characters in the Bible, there's one thing they're known for, like Job.

Lucinda Williams

In each of my characters there is a little of me. Not strictly autobiographical but a little piece of my soul.

Dario Argento

Few characters in history are indispensable.

Albert Bushnell Hart

I saw Tequila Sunrise as a romantic picture with complex, bigger than life characters.

Conrad Hall

The audience has to understand that if the film is going to have any meaning for them. If they are going to empathize with the characters, they have to visualize the process of concentration involved in making every move.

Conrad Hall

Basically, I think that there are some characters that you can just allow the truth of your character as a human being in your real life to come through.

Edward James Olmos

I think in Vice and American Me I played very silent, rigid characters and people remember them.

Edward James Olmos

And I've been acting for 39 years, so I define characters differently than I did in say Miami Vice.

Edward James Olmos

I probably read 100 times more than I write, but that way when I move my characters through it, I know.

Jean M. Auel

I can move my characters through it easily, because I understand the background; I've really studied it.

Jean M. Auel

I start with the story, almost in the old campfire sense, and the story leads to both the characters, which actors should best be cast in this story, and the language. The choice of words, more than anything else, creates the feeling that the story gives off.

Donald E. Westlake

Watergate is an immensely complicated scandal with a cast of characters as varied as a Tolstoy novel.

Bob Woodward

Whatever your relationship is to your sacred tradition in the West, you have some relationship to the Bible if only through the names of the characters.

Anita Diament

Actually, I find it great fun to develop family series with lots of characters.

Nora Roberts

I remember the guest stars who came, they were always trying to find a new plot for their characters because they wanted to stay. It was really a great working environment.

Caroline Dhavernas
