The idea of it becomes a little freaky if you're dealing
by Adam Arkin

The idea of it becomes a little freaky if you're dealing
with someone who has trouble differentiating between fantasy and reality,
but that's a concern no matter what kind of movie you're dealing with.
- Adam Arkin

I think in the case of horror, it's a chance to confront
a lot of your worse fears and those fears usually have to do,
ironically, with powerlessness and isolation.
- Adam Arkin

You're going through the horror of it,
you're going through the isolation of it but you're
being empowered by reminding yourself that you're connected to everybody else.
- Adam Arkin

First and foremost, it was fun.
Everybody involved with it made you feel like they
were an important contributor to the process.
We were made to feel valued.
- Adam Arkin

 

To confront those fears, in a controlled environment,
where there's 300 people around you going through the same thing,
it's this weird sort of yin and yang.
- Adam Arkin

We all look to have transcendent experiences that lift us out of the everyday,
and fear is a good one.
But, I think it's the same reason why people want to laugh their heads off.
- Adam Arkin

I can't imagine that I would have been cast in the role,
without Jamie Lee giving me a thumbs up.
- Adam Arkin

I think that was the case here.
We just wanted it to be good for everybody.
- Adam Arkin

I feel like Josh, Michelle and Adam were all team players,
who wanted to be a part of an ensemble.
- Adam Arkin

sexual pleasure or have one too many drinks.
We all want to experience the other,
and to get out of our daily existence.
- Adam Arkin

What I had to say was, in general, I'm not really a
fan of any one genre of any kind of film.
- Adam Arkin

It's amazing that this is still news to people,
but that affects the final outcome of the film.
When people are treated well, and they're made to feel valued,
they give 110 percent.
- Adam Arkin

I'm always honored, but I think for every 100 of those that come along,
one of them is actually going to happen.
And, the fact that this was an offer on a major film that had a start date,
was pretty impressive.
- Adam Arkin

I want to continue doing as big a variety of things as I can do,
and if that means I have the honor of getting to do more feature work,
I would love that.
I know that if I make any other long-term TV commitments,
it's not going to be on a drama.
- Adam Arkin

It's a lot of work and I also feel like I've done it.
I miss comedy.
And I also think that, from purely a logistical standpoint,
that the day-to-day schedule on a comedy allows you to have a life,
much more of a life, than on a drama.
- Adam Arkin

I really would have been stupid not to have done it.
It was also a film that was actually happening,
I mean, Miramax was doing it, and it had a kind of legitimacy to it.
And once I read the script, I was there.
- Adam Arkin

The place was crawling with youngsters.
It was good, because the kids were good.
I can't make a general assumption.
Again, you're probably getting, as a general theme from me,
that I don't make a lot of broad, sweeping rules about movies.
- Adam Arkin

People can get obsessed with romance,
they can get obsessed with political paranoia,
they can get obsessed with horror.
It's isn't the fault of the subject matter that creates the obsession,
I don't think.
- Adam Arkin

I think that's created a healthy environment.
The comparisons to "ER" were maddening and there was
this assumption that the two of us were looking at
each other with rage and resentment,
which was also not the case.
- Adam Arkin

that I had to be guided by
some pattern or blueprint.
- Little Richard

its presence will induce.

what constitutes true happiness.

but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed
toward the hope of greening the landscape of idea.

Plant trees for your great-grandchildren -
for future generations.
Create the legacy of a better world.
Leave this world a better place than you found it.
Literally planting trees for
your great-grandchildren is a wonderful idea,
but far more important...
use this symbolism - this imagery -
to represent the kind of legacy
you want to leave to future generations.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Man's mind, once stretched by a new idea,
never regains its original dimensions.

However carefully we plan our future,

and that is good.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

to good ideas - whatever their source.
It is equally important to avoid accepting any idea
merely because we respect that person's
other ideas or accomplishments.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Sex education may be a good idea in the schools,
but I don't believe the kids should be given homework.

There is a secret wisdom-of-the-ages
that holds the key to breaking our
cycle of self-imposed suffering.
The secret wisdom is, "Life is not supposed to be fair."
This is not sad news. This is GLORIOUS news!
Life is not broken. Nothing is wrong.
God has not failed, died, or gone on vacation.
The world is working perfectly. We just misunderstood.
Somewhere along the way, someone got the idea that
life was "supposed" to be "fair,"
and all the trouble started -
expectation, disappointment, resentment, anger -
a whole cycle of suffering that began
with the belief that life is "supposed" to be "fair."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

so healing to my own sadness from my childhood.

Modern art is what happens when painters stop looking
at girls and persuade themselves that they have a better idea.
- John Ciardi

Beyond mind, there is an awareness that is intrinsic,
that is not given to you by the outside, and is not an idea -
and there is no experiment up to now
that has found any center in the brain
which corresponds to awareness.
The whole work of meditation is
to make you aware of all that is "mind"
and disidentify yourself from it.
That very separation is the
greatest revolution that can happen to man.
Now you can do and act on only that
which makes you more joyous, fulfills you,
gives you contentment, makes your life a work of art, a beauty.
But this is possible only if the master in you is awake.
- Osho

an idea whose time has come.

dries off and does something about it who makes a difference.

capsules in order to give those people living in the
next century or so some idea of what we are like.
