Reckoning Hopkins quotations

Glory be to God for dappled things.


Lightnin' Hopkins taught us, "the rubber on a wheel is faster than the rubber on a heel" and Muddy Waters taught us "you don't have to be the best one; just be a good 'un" .. that just about says it all, always strive to be a good 'un.

Nothing is so beautiful as spring- When weeds in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush.

Sending us Ebola bombs in the form of sweaty Glaswegians just isn't cricket.

Sometimes the little things in life mean the most.


I wanted to do - there was this film called 'Magic' that Anthony Hopkins did.

And the director wanted me. The writer wanted me. Joe Levine said no, I don't want any comedians in this.

ZZ Top did get a chance to play with Lightnin' Hopkins and Jimmy Reed, there's still that one, single song we just can't shake... J.B. Hutto's "Combination Boogie".

Look at the stars! Look, look up at the skies! Oh look at all the fire-folk sitting in the air! The bright boroughs, the circle-citadels there!

I have desired to go Where springs not fail, To fields where flies no sharp and sided hail And a few lilies blow.

After working as a journalist I went to a writing program at Johns Hopkins.

It was interesting because it was neither journalistic nor historical, but it emphasized writing style, and afterwards I was asked to write my first book.


Still, it can be more effective to accomplish what you need to accomplish with the minimum effort. Watch Anthony Hopkins. He doesn't appear to be doing anything. He is so still that you can't see him working, but you are drawn into his character through his very stillness.

Grief. The pain now is part of the happiness then. That's the deal.

Rhythm to me is essentially what Hopkins called the taste of self. I taste myself as rhythm.

Anthony Hopkins says you just keep acting.

Do it all the time and eventually it will happen. He got his break, after all, by taking a role nobody else wanted. A cannibal!

And the headbonny ash that sits over the burn.

What would the world be, once bereft Of wet and of wildness? Let them be left, O Let them be left, wildness and wet: Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet.


Lightnin' Hopkins was something of a fixture on the Houston coffee house scene so we were witness to eccentric blues brilliance close up. Then, believe it or not, along came the wave of the English cats like John Mayall, Eric Clapton and the Stones embracing the great American art form - the blues.

The man who inspired me most, I think, was Dr.

Alfred Blalock, who was professor of surgery at Johns Hopkins. He was a rather simple man with a burning curiosity. It was through his curiosity that he made many real contributions to medical science.

The effect of studying masterpieces is to make me admire and do otherwise.

It's always been my dream to do a dance scene with Anthony Hopkins.

Every time I see Anthony Hopkins I think that, to some extent, he has just been getting away with it all these years.


MAKE STATEMENTS also applies to us women: Speak in statements instead of apologetic questions. No one wants to go to a doctor who says, “I’m going to be your surgeon? I’m here to talk to you about your procedure? I was first in my class at Johns Hopkins, so?” Make statements, with your actions and your voice.

I didn't know what I was doing in New York.

It costs $30,000 to $50,000 per year to send someone to jail.

You don't have to pay so much to send someone to school at Johns Hopkins.

The Department of Cell Biology at Johns Hopkins was founded and directed by Tom Pollard, an engaging young scientist with remarkable energy and enthusiasm.

Getting to share a project with Anthony Hopkins is incredible.

It's like watching Da Vinci paint or something - you're reminded why you do what you do.


I would love to work with Sir Anthony Hopkins.

How and why that would happen in a comedy I'm not sure - why he would be dragged over to my side, or I'd be be dragged over to his side.

Beauty is a relation, and the apprehension of it a comparison.

I did get to work with Anthony Hopkins on 'The Human Stain.

' If I ever manage to accomplish a quarter of what he's achieved, I'll have had one hell of a career.

I wanted to be Anthony Hopkins and ended up being neither a film star nor having a career on the stage.

I still have not given up the idea of becoming a journalist, but at 17 I decided to follow my heart and stay in Los Angeles with my girlfriend as opposed to going to Johns Hopkins.


I play Hopkins' daughter. Brad Pitt plays Death. He's a very-good looking Death. With him, dying isn't so bad.

When people call me Sir Anthony I just think oh, that's a bit odd.

But I'm not cynical about it. Um, I just feel more comfortable being called Tony or Mr. Hopkins, whatever name I'm called.

I'm cheaper than Anthony Hopkins. The other actors they asked to play Gandalf wouldn't go to New Zealand on that money for that length of time. I thought it would be a bit of an adventure. Tony Hopkins didn't think it would be an adventure. Tony is part of Hollywood. I'm an eccentric English actor, and there's a lot of us around.

Some of the best actors in the world are very exterior actors, Anthony Hopkins being one of them. He knows exactly how to turn his face to get a certain expression. He knows exactly what to do with eyes, and with his voice. It's very exterior.
