Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill.
Listen, global warming is a real problem, but it' s not the end of the world. A 30-centimetre sea level rise is just not going to bring the world to a standstill, just like it didn't over the last 150 years.
Whenever life's at a standstill, I need some action.
Success cannot come from standstill men. Methods change and men must change with them.
If you say, 'You've made it,' then you kind of come to a standstill, and I don't think any actor wants to do that.
