For me it would be unhealthy to be a method actor; I’m not mentally stable enough for that – I need to separate my two worlds.
Emily Browning
Piano was – well, all musical instruments were taught in this very rigid, formal, classical method when I was young.
Hugh Laurie
There are two schools of thought: There are those actors who explain to you that they know exactly how they’re going to do the part… And then there is the other method, which is to have no method at all. This is mine.

I’ve worked with Method Man and Shaquille O’Neil on multiple occasions. I’d never have thought. It’s like, ‘Oh, those guys. They’re my movie buddies.’

Molly Antopol
Reason and science allow us to properly think about the necessary data that are required in order to answer a given question. This is precisely why the scientific method is the most powerful framework for understanding the world.

The method of exposition which philosophers have adopted leads many to suppose that they are simply inquiries, that they have no interest in the conclusions at which they arrive, and that their primary concern is to follow their premises to their logical conclusions.
Morris Raphael Cohen
Shipping is the greenest method of transport. In terms of carbon emissions per ton per mile, it emits about a thousandth of aviation and about a tenth of trucking. But it’s not benign, because there’s so much of it. So shipping emissions are about three to four percent, almost the same as aviation’s.
Rose George
Google’s library plan was staggering and exciting – it wasn’t the idea I objected to, but the method.
Nick Harkaway
Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.
Carl Jung
My background is basically scientific math. My Dad was a physicist, so I have it in my blood somewhere. Scientific method is very important to me. I think anything that contradicts it is probably not true.

Judy Collins
Some directors are open to ideas, and some are rigid. And, some actors are into method acting, and some, instinctive.
Shriya Saran
I know war as few other men now living know it, and nothing to me is more revolting. I have long advocated its complete abolition, as its very destructiveness on both friend and foe has rendered it useless as a method of settling international disputes.
Ernest Hemingway
Science is a method to keep yourself from kidding yourself.
Edwin Land
I always try and use my jiujitsu to win fights. That’s my favorite method of securing victory.

Goldwin Smith
I wouldn’t say I’m a Method actor, but I do try to focus very deeply on what character I’m playing, and everything else goes out the window. I forget about everything. I try to get everything else out of my head.
Sean Bean

Feisal Abdul Rauf
I am a radical in thought (and principle) and a conservative in method (and conduct).

G. Edward Griffin
The method of magnitude estimation provided a direct measure of sensation.
Stanley Smith Stevens
You can find a product and be aware of all the other products out there in just seconds. That’s a very attractive method for companies and consumers. At the same time, it also creates a lot of competition.

For better or worse, I don’t necessarily categorize myself as a method actor; I’m not going to make claims that I stayed in character 24/7.

Robert Fortune
Basically everything I’ve done in art, I was in possession of when I was 20 years old. I use a waste retrieval method of working. I’ll go back and use something that disgusted me 15 years ago but that I had enough sense to think about. Some artists change dramatically. I see my work more like history being written.
Edward Ruscha
William McKinley Oswald was my high school football coach. He was a great coach and had a profound influence on my life. But I think he could have learned his method of motivating players from an army drill sergeant.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
I think that the Internet is going to be one of the major forces for reducing the role of government. The one thing that’s missing, but that will soon be developed, is a reliable e-cash – a method whereby on the Internet you can transfer funds from A to B without A knowing B or B knowing A.
Milton Friedman
I don’t shop beats. That was never my method coming up. I think it’s very strange to have a CD of 30 or 40 beats and then just pick one.

Cedric Richmond
I love Westerns and I remember as a kid climbing up on the couch and make it into a saddle and shoot guns and fall off. I would lay there after my death and my mom would tell me to eat lunch and I’d say, ‘I’m still dead, Mom!’ I was Method, even then.
Creed Bratton
I need to acknowledge the toll certain parts of my life are taking on me. I have to do that, even if it temporarily paralyzes me to suppress it. Otherwise, paradoxically, I can’t go on. When I can reside in that, and recoup, then I can continue. In a strange way it’s a survival method.
Margo Jefferson
The method of instruction in Scouting is that of creating in the boy the desire to learn for himself.
Robert Baden-Powell

James Ivory
Through affliction hath His light shone and His praise been bright unceasingly: this hath been His method through past ages and bygone times.
I decided right away that whomever was going to advise me had to be fundamentally interested in music.

Bryson Tiller
I think that it’s more important for an economist to be wise and sophisticated in scientific method than it is for a physicist because with controlled laboratory experiments possible, they practically guide you; you couldn’t go astray. Whereas in economics, by dogma and misunderstanding, you can go very sadly astray.
Paul Samuelson
I’m a method actor.
Seann William Scott
As for the method of making films, I would say that there are no rules as such. The only thing important is that you should have the confidence to do it and have a good story.
Mahesh Manjrekar
I do Bar Method – it’s, like, you’re there for an hour, and you get everything, and you’re done.

My method of getting a play across the footlights is like a revolver shooting: every line has a bullet in it and comes with an explosion.
George Bernard Shaw

W. Bruce Cameron
I use this method to bring emotion into my performance. I recite my lines in English first, and then switch back to the original lines when shooting begins.

The stats suggest that I’m not a dasher. It doesn’t mean I can’t play the shots, but when you find a method in four-day and Test cricket that works for you, you stick with it.
Alastair Cook
My method is much like choreography. I don’t sit at a table. I work in a room with people.
Robert Wilson
Unions, by and large, are democratic organizations with freely chosen leaders and policies determined by the membership. They concern themselves with individual dignity not only in their aims but in their method. We have no better example of what is worthy of emulation abroad than the workings of a good union.
Robert Kennedy
Since being in India, I am more convinced than ever before that the method of nonviolent resistance is the most potent weapon available to oppressed people in their struggle for justice and human dignity.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Shouldn’t the General Assembly adopt a declaration on the inadmissibility of interference into domestic affairs of sovereign states and nonrecognition of coup d’etats as a method of the change of power?
Sergei Lavrov
I didn’t just want to be a poster boy and sign on to publicize somebody else’s method of operations. If I was going to put myself out there, I wanted to make sure that it was to an end. So I got involved with this congressional hearing about Parkinson’s being underfunded.
Michael J. Fox
For Pleasure, Delight, Peace and Felicity live in method and temperance.
Margaret Cavendish
Between takes I find it difficult to switch off and then try and re-emerge myself in the part, so I try to stay in that frame of mine all day. It can be exhausting and you lose a sense of self, but it is the method that works best for me.
Hayden Christensen
Democracy is a political method, that is to say, a certain type of institutional arrangement for arriving at political – legislative and administrative – decisions and hence incapable of being an end in itself.

Violence is absolutely not our method.
Pope Shenouda III
People get the impression that we approach football without method: that we’re a bunch of skilled individualists. This just isn’t so. I’m all for individuality. But I personally go through every tactical plan before every match.
Matt Busby
I’m a Method actor. I spent years training for the drinking and carousing I had to do in this film.
George Clooney
As a sociolinguist, I want to know how cultural differences affect the ways people talk and listen. My research method, inspired by the work of Robin Lakoff and John Gumperz of the University of California at Berkeley, is sociolinguistic microanalysis. I tape-record and transcribe naturally occurring conversations.
Deborah Tannen
I don’t like this idea of Method. I come from that school, but what I was taught was that it’s your imagination. You do your homework, and you use your imagination.
Mark Ruffalo
I’m sort of a reverse Method actor. In my personal life, I become my characters. After ‘One Tree Hill’, I started dressing in Converse and ripped jeans and hoodies. On ‘Awkward’, it manifests in how I speak.
Ashley Rickards
But a science is exact to the extent that its method measures up to and is adequate to its object.
Gabriel Marcel
It’s to paint directly on the canvas without any funny business, as it were, and I use almost pure turpentine to start with, adding oil as I go along until the medium becomes pure oil. I use as little oil as I can possibly help, and that’s my method.
Edward Hopper
At the time when I was conducting my research there was no known method for taking the guinea pig’s temperature. I demonstrated a technique which is now widely used.
Charles Jules Henry Nicole
One of the big concerns is the increasing disrespect for the scientific method and for policies that aren’t based on facts and evidence.
Bill Foster
Of all the ways of acquiring books, writing them oneself is regarded as the most praiseworthy method. Writers are really people who write books not because they are poor, but because they are dissatisfied with the books which they could buy but do not like.
Walter Benjamin
I’m not into that method acting thing. I just turn up, say my lines and go home.
Marc Warren
I have my method when it comes to my work. I don’t think about who has done what, rather what I am doing is of utmost importance to me.
Diana Penty
If you want to accomplish something in the world, idealism is not enough – you need to choose a method that works to achieve the goal.
Richard Stallman
I believe in method acting. Whenever I’m working on a character, I start behaving like him. I start doing these things which the character would normally do. Maybe that’s the way I function as an actor, and I believe in it. And that’s how I try and portray a character.
Kartik Aaryan
I can play the character better because of the roundness of my experience – because of the things I’ve been through. All those method guys – like that De Niro, Stallone, and what’s his name, Pacino – they’re all the same.
Charles Bronson
I am not into method acting.
Ali Fazal
I’m not a Method actress. I work in the present, the day-to-day.
Your primary presumption that The Bridge was proffered as an epic has no substantial foundation. You know quite well that I doubt that our present stage of cultural development is so ordered yet as to provide the means or method for such an organic manifestation as that.
Hart Crane
In the beginning of the year 1665, I found the method of approximating series and the rule for reducing any dignity of any binomial into such a series.

I started to grow microbial cellulose to explore an ecofriendly textile for clothing and accessories but, very quickly, I realized this method had potential for all sorts of other biodegradable consumer products.
Suzanne Lee
Learning method acting might mess me up.
Kellie Martin
But my method of the pillar, as it throws the horse yet more upon the haunches, is still more effectual to this purpose, and besides always gives him the ply to the side he goes of.
William Cavendish
I’d love to be one of those guys who could be like, ‘Yeah, it’s really exhausting,’ but the truth is I’m not method. I don’t take roles home.
Justin Theroux
There’s no particular method or course of action that I take in order to decide who I’m going to work with besides feeling complete and total respect and admiration for that artist.
Kali Uchis
I wouldn’t say I’m a Method actor, but there are times where a role will require you to live in their world.
Jurnee Smollett-Bell
I’m not really into method acting – the way I was taught was the good old-fashioned British way of just doing your research and getting on with it.
Laura Donnelly
I don’t want my work to be heavy. The challenge is to make it interesting and engaging, keeping in mind the need for method acting. This is what I have learnt from Bharat Muni’s ‘Natya Shastra’ and from the Russian theatre legend Stanislavsky.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui
This means that to entrust to science – or to deliberate control according to scientific principles – more than scientific method can achieve may have deplorable effects.
Friedrich August von Hayek
I have a method of working on music: I’ll get up in the morning and throw down some drums on my drum machine, and then I’ll come back later and try to pop off rhythms to it.
Jeff Hanneman
If you wanted to dissect the structure of living cells, genetic analysis was an extremely powerful method, so my interest turned to that.
Joshua Lederberg
The best and safest method of philosophizing seems to be first to inquire diligently into the properties of things, and establishing those properties by experiments, and then to proceed more slowly to hypotheses for the explanation of them.
Isaac Newton
Traditional scientific method has always been at the very best, 20 – 20 hindsight. It’s good for seeing where you’ve been. It’s good for testing the truth of what you think you know, but it can’t tell you where you ought to go.
Robert M. Pirsig
There’s a competitive grief atmosphere in acting classes. Like, whoever has the biggest trauma is sort of like the winner of the day today or gets the A+. That, I could identify with from when I sort of dabbled with method acting classes when I was a teenager.
Sarah Goldberg
Peter Mullan is the least method actor around.
Harry Lloyd
When the scientific method came into being, it gave us a new window on the truth; namely, a method by laboratory-controlled experiments to winnow true hypotheses from false ones.

And, of course, method is very important as is a high-quality specialist (trainer) working with you to keep you going in the right direction for your improvement and to help create results.
Sergei Bubka
There’s this whole list of old personalities that I can act, as corny as that sounds, or as method actor as that sounds.
Cedric Bixler-Zavala
I was a diction, speech and method acting professor before I became an actor.
Puneet Issar
If you’re against war, you’re against war regardless of what happens. It’s a wrong method of trying to settle a dispute.
Jeannette Rankin
There is no Benitez ‘method.’ We try to be more solid in defense without losing the quality in attack.
Rafael Benitez
Even though the method of ‘Harvest’ was a historical novel, its intentions were that of a modern novel. I’m asking you to think about land being seized in Brazil by soya barons. It’s also a novel about immigration.
Jim Crace
Take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly, and try another. But by all means, try something.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
I’m not a method actor. The techniques that I follow have been created and practiced in my own journey, ones that I have researched, formed and invented.
Neeraj Kabi
I insist on doing all my own film stunts, although they are often worked out in advance by a stunt man who then advises me on the best and safest method of performing it.
Jean-Paul Belmondo
What sort of person you grow into should not be achieved by default, and often that’s exactly what happens to kids. I see literature as a method of guidance, information, and contemplation, and consider it the greatest compliment possible when a reader tells me that a book of mine really made him/her think.
Wendelin Van Draanen
The best way to study is to go to the Cecchetti method for about a year and draw onto all the highest points and then put that into the general method.
Ninette de Valois
A favorite cooking method? I’m a fan of all of them! Anything that gets a pile of random ingredients into a cruelty-free dish works for me!
Rory Freedman
The first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him.
Niccolo Machiavelli
Outcome is simply the final score: Who won the game; what numbers came up in a roll of the dice; how high did a stock go. Outcome is the result, regardless of the method used to achieve it. It is not controllable.
Barry Ritholtz
Supporting people to stay in their homes is surely a better method of reducing homelessness than acting after the fact.
Dawn Foster
That’s the method: restructure the world we live in in some way, then see what happens.
Frederik Pohl
My dad’s method in his madness was to try every sport and then observe what I liked. I played football, tennis, golf, cricket but I loved my snooker.
Ronnie O’Sullivan
I do like to work on a Marvel method, so if I’ve got the opportunity, and the writer is happy to do it, I like to have a writer detail what happens on a page, but not saying what happens in every scene.
David Lloyd
We do not pray to God to instruct Him as to what He should do; neither for a moment must we presume to dictate the method of the divine working.
Charles Spurgeon
I really wanted to do a deep-dive into the idea that women are always called ‘crazy,’ and we are painted with such broad strokes because it’s so easy to stereotype women and write them off. I got tired of that, and I wanted to explain: We are not crazy. There’s a method to our madness.
Iliza Shlesinger
Influenced by him, and probably even more so by my brother Theodore (a year older than me), I soon became interested in biology and developed a respect for the importance of science and the scientific method.
Frederick Sanger
One day I discovered that one could get the barrier to internal rotation in ethane approximately right using this method. This was the beginning of my work on organic molecules.
Roald Hoffmann
First figure out why you want the students to learn the subject and what you want them to know, and the method will result more or less by common sense.
Richard P. Feynman
The most common way to grow a business is by overseeing each and every aspect of the company – the ‘ground up’ method.
Lynda Resnick
I could become very rich in Guatemala but by the low method of ratifying my title, opening a clinic, and specialising in allergies. To do that would be the most horrible betrayal of the two ‘I’s’ struggling inside me: the socialist and the traveller.
Che Guevara
The insidiousness of science lies in its claim to be not a subject, but a method.
Katharine Elizabeth Fullerton Gerould
Moms get their fair share of conflicting advice, with a heaping of unsolicited advice. Parents debate the pros/cons of different types of disposable diapers, whether the supposed carcinogens in Johnson & Johnson baby products hurt their kids who used it, which method of sleep training to use.
Christine Tsai
Create your own method. Don’t depend slavishly on mine. Make up something that will work for you! But keep breaking traditions, I beg you.
Constantin Stanislavski
It is human nature that when you see something work well, you do more of it. If, in its ceaseless quest for revenue, government sees a seemingly harmless method of raising funds without causing much inflation, it will grab on to it.
Murray Rothbard
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
I think England has to change the way they are teaching football because football is changing, and the method isn’t changing as much.
Patrick Vieira
There’s a method to the madness in filmmaking, where everything’s very specifically laid out, the shots and what they need – but there also can be a freedom to allowing the actors to find genuine moments.
Alexandra Daddario
Another method of eating burning coals employs small balls of burned cotton in a dish of burning alcohol.
Harry Houdini
We are more and more into technology. Everything is texting, and everything is instant. Flowers are completely impractical as a method of communication when you could just send a text.
Vanessa Diffenbaugh
He has a method that likens the musician to an athlete, so I do physical exercises designed to keep a musician in shape in order to perform the function, which is to play music.
Herb Alpert
There isn’t any formula or method. You learn to love by loving – by paying attention and doing what one thereby discovers has to be done.
Aldous Huxley
The scientific method is nearly perfect for understanding the physical aspects of our life. But it is a radically limited viewfinder in its inability to offer values, morals and meanings that are at the center of our lives.
Huston Smith
Technique is superficial. The method used in applying technique is what gives music its character.
Henry Mancini
I like listening to Method Man before fighting.
Forrest Griffin
The psychoanalytic method is essentially a historical method.
Erik Erikson
I work via the high-tension-wire method, which is maybe going for long periods without writing while the tension builds up – when am I going to write this, am I going to be able to write this, what is this image about – and I’m thinking about it all the time, but I’m not really inside it, inside the writing.
Jayne Anne Phillips
My career as an author began as I saw it as a natural progression from music, as both music and books are a method of storytelling.
Tom Fletcher
To mistrust science and deny the validity of scientific method is to resign your job as a human. You’d better go look for work as a plant or wild animal.
P. J. O’Rourke
My cameraman and I devised a method, which we started using from my second film, which applies mainly to day scenes shot in the studio, where we used bounced light instead of direct light. We agreed with this thing of four or five shadows following the actors is dreadful.
Satyajit Ray
Whatever the medium, there is the difficulty, challenge, fascination and often productive clumsiness of learning a new method: the wonderful puzzles and problems of translating with new materials.
Helen Frankenthaler
It is all nonsense, to be sure; and so much the greater nonsense inasmuch as the true interpretation of many dreams – not by any means of all dreams – moves, it may be said, in the opposite direction to the method of psycho-analysis.
Arthur Machen
Getting four people awake, fed, dressed, and out the door on time is a challenge. Add to that making a school lunch, and you can tilt over the edge. Unless you are well prepared and have a simple method to follow.
Tamra Davis
Do I provoke as a method of investigation? Of course. That’s the essence of architecture. Do I do it with gusto? I do.
Thom Mayne
We oppose occupation of land by force and we believe in dialogue as the method for regaining Arab rights. This is the spirit of the Great Arab Revolt.
Hussein of Jordan
The Swedish Academy of Sciences has seen fit, by awarding the Nobel Prize, to honour the method of producing ammonia from nitrogen and hydrogen.
Fritz Haber
More than an end to war, we want an end to the beginning of all wars – yes, an end to this brutal, inhuman and thoroughly impractical method of settling the differences between governments.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Comedy’s my first love. I love that so much. You play comedy in drama, too. The difference between genres doesn’t really change the method of acting.
Emma Stone
Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
I’ve really been enjoying The Bar Method because I’m not a sweaty mess when we get to my favorite part of class – the end.
Cobie Smulders
I like to think that I’m extremely method with my tactics on getting work.
Cobie Smulders
No one is an artist unless he carries his picture in his head before painting it, and is sure of his method and composition.
Claude Monet
The surest method of being incomprehensible or, moreover, to be misunderstood is to use words in their original sense; especially words from the ancient languages.
Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
Warfare is an utterly stupid method of settling differences of interest between different nations.
George Herbert Mead
Even as we ought to accept that each country would progress with a different method and speed toward that goal, the standard for the expected end-state should not be lowered.

As the ANC, we have got to condemn violence as a method of addressing our differences and disputes amongst us.
Cyril Ramaphosa
I watched what method Nature might take, with intention of subduing the symptom by treading in her footsteps.
Thomas Sydenham
I am not that big a method actor.
Ram Charan

Sherman Alexie
History has repeatedly shown that when a new method or material becomes available, new uses for it arise.
Wilson Greatbatch
Angelina Jolie was always a Method actress. She’d been nominated for Golden Globes before she ever did ‘Tomb Raider.’
Megan Fox
My method of praying does not meet the conventional standards as I don’t recite any specific prayers but rather indulge in conversations with God.
Tanushree Dutta
Most American actors are taught the Stanislavsky method… Method acting, but I really think that as an actor you have to develop what works for you. There is really not one way of doing anything. There are many ways of achieving the same goal.
Ving Rhames
‘Whatever it takes’ is my opinion of method acting and, indeed, any other kind of acting. Look at Brando and De Niro. But it’s not my cup of tea.
Ian Holm
I exercise three to four times a week, doing the Tracy Anderson Method, which involves toning and strengthening our small muscle groups.
Natalie Imbruglia
Method involves a slavish addiction to laws, and we can only aspire to anarchy.
Robert Pinsky
I take bits and pieces from everything. But I think the Method can be very isolating, and sometimes it’s more about ego than playing the character truthfully.
Maxine Peake
I guess I was an early method actress. I would go to a quiet part of the sound stage with my mother. I wouldn’t think of anything sad, I would just make my mind a blank. In a minute I could cry.
Shirley Temple
Naftali Bennett and I have a method in life: We believe in seizing opportunities.
Ayelet Shaked
There are two objectionable types of believers: those who believe the incredible and those who believe that ‘belief’ must be discarded and replaced by ‘the scientific method.
Max Born
Every conceivable cruel method of blackmail was used against me to obtain by force and at all costs confessions and statements both about comrades who had been arrested, and about political activities.
Ernst Thalmann
Statistics are the triumph of the quantitative method, and the quantitative method is the victory of sterility and death.
Hilaire Belloc
I used to really like Method Man and Redman for some reason. And Fabolous. A lot of New York rappers, too. Cam’ron. Jim Jones. Hurricane Chris.
Ski Mask the Slump God
Argument is conclusive, but it does not remove doubt, so that the mind may rest in the sure knowledge of the truth, unless it finds it by the method of experiment.
Roger Bacon
As a guitar player, I’ve been influenced by dance music – it was Crystal Method and The Prodigy back in the day. I would listen to those textures and try to approximate them on the electric guitar.
Tom Morello
Perhaps the original layaway angel knew from experience, or simply deduced, that people resorting to the old-fashioned installment method of layaway may be struggling financially.
Elaine Chao
Of course I’m schooled in the old school method: taking what I think the director wants, then reworking it through my own brain and heart.
Shirley MacLaine
When modern physics exerts itself to establish the world’s formula, what occurs thereby is this: the being of entities has resolved itself into the method of the totally calculable.
Martin Heidegger
What we observe is not nature itself, but nature exposed to our method of questioning.
Werner Heisenberg
The earlier you invest, the higher that attrition rate is because it’s compounded. We have a more scientific method of investment.
Dave McClure
I change my method and field of reference from book to book because I can never believe in the same thing two times running.
Italo Calvino
I do not use any set methods, not even The Method. The character after all is in the lines.
Donald Pleasence
I’m not a Method actor. I don’t believe acting should be psychodrama. I look within myself and see what I can find to play the role with. If I’m playing a blind man, I don’t go around blindfolded for days. A lot of good actors would, but I don’t go in for that very much. I like to just make it up as I go along.
John Malkovich
It is a fact that all women contribute more to marriage than men; for the most part they have to change their place of living, their method of work, a great many women today changing their occupation entirely on marriage; and they must even change their name.
Agnes Macphail
HQ kind of hearkens back to that old method of watching live television, when you couldn’t DVR it.
Scott Rogowsky
Our method of speaking is interrupted, hard-edged… a lot of consonants and noises.
Florian Schneider
Something my father dearly loved is the scientific method, and it’s founded in this element of humility. The idea is that you pursue the truth wherever it goes; you need to evidence, and you can – you see if it’s repeatable.
Nick Sagan
The biblical method of change begins in the heart of man with the Gospel. It transforms the mind of man and gradually works its way out. And it builds a nation from the bottom up.
Kirk Cameron
It’s a wonderfully democratic method, publishing a text on the Internet.
Elfriede Jelinek
I remember my first scene with Alan Rickman, and I was anxious because he is a slight ‘method’ actor; as soon as he is in his cloak, he walks and talks like Snape – it is quite terrifying. But I really wanted to talk to him because ‘Robin Hood’ was one of my favourite films.
Tom Felton
A work of art can start you thinking about some aesthetic or philosophical problem; it can suggest some new method, some fresh approach to fiction.
Francine Prose
I share a lovely relationship with Javed Saab. I understand his method of working.
Shankar Mahadevan
The entire educational process must be carried out with love, which is perceptible in every disciplinary measure and which does not instill any fear. And the most effective educational method is not the word of instruction but the living example without which all words remain useless.
Edith Stein
The deductive method is the mode of using knowledge, and the inductive method the mode of acquiring it.
Henry Mayhew
Method acting is a label I don’t really understand, because there’s a method to everybody’s acting.
Dougray Scott
There is no method but to be very intelligent.
T. S. Eliot
Whether you are new to the scene or a long-time grillmaster, everyone has unique preferences when it comes to their cooking method of choice. From propane to charcoal to wood, people take their method of grilling quite seriously, and some argue quite passionately about the pros and cons of each method.
Homaro Cantu
My method is, I just sit down and write a book.
Karen Robards
I always have an item in mind that I want to wear; then, the next day, I put it on, and I love the 20-minute rush of frantically tearing clothes out of my wardrobe to go with it. And I honestly feel that’s the best way to do it; there’s no method to my fashion madness so to speak.
Poppy Delevingne
The last thing I want to do is use my comedy as a partisan tool or as a method for preaching.
Armando Iannucci
I think there is always going to be inspired music and there are always going to be inspired listeners and there is always going to be an inspired method of getting it from A to B.
Anthony Kiedis
Isolated decisions, however well-founded they might seem to the individual, and national go-it-alone moves must belong to the past. They should not be the 21st-century method of choice, particularly because the consequences of the European community’s actions must often be carried collectively.
Helmut Kohl
I studied method acting for four years and I’m a big believer in the idea that it’s not about the actual experience itself. You don’t have to go through exactly what this character has gone through.
Sam Levinson
There is a method to the madness when it comes to placing everything in your refrigerator.
Khloe Kardashian
I am convinced that the stratigraphic method will in the future enable archaeology to throw far more light on the history of American culture than it has done in the past.
Edward Sapir
I dress in my ‘uniform,’ or my own dress code, which reflects my personal method and work ethic. My belief is that my plain T-shirt – I have about 40 of them – or blue sweater helps focus others’ attention on me and on what I say.
Giorgio Armani
What is hypertext? It is a method of giving a text more depth, structuring it, and letting the computer help you explore it. Links, like we know today – you see some blue underlined word and you click on it and it takes you somewhere else. That’s the simplest definition of hypertext.
Robert Cailliau
The analysis of variance is not a mathematical theorem, but rather a convenient method of arranging the arithmetic.
Ronald Fisher
The true method of knowledge is experiment.
William Blake
I’m not a method actor because it refers to a certain kind or technique of acting that I have studied about, and I know I’m not one of them.
Ishaan Khatter
The method of producing comics in Japan is very hectic, but it’s also rewarding because it’s possible to do both the story and art all by yourself.
Akira Toriyama
To be honest, there are so many things I learned in acting school beyond the method; it was a safe place to practice. So acting school was about exercising that acting muscle and doing it every single day – and having people tell you that you’re bad every single day! Which pushes you to work even harder.
Jane Levy
I’m not a method actor, but I’m a big research kind of actor.
Ruben Santiago-Hudson
A common and highly effective method for challenging a statement is to compare it to the previous statements of the witness for consistency and to compare it with the physical evidence.
Robert P. McCulloch
Every human being must find his own way to cope with severe loss, and the only job of a true friend is to facilitate whatever method he chooses.
Caleb Carr
I think people have a misinterpretation of Method acting, because Method acting is a wonderful thing. The thing is, if you take it too seriously, it’s like religion. You start to think it’s the truth. But it’s not the truth. It’s just a way to get somewhere.
Vincent Cassel
If the leading Negro classes cannot assume and bear the uplift of their own proletariat, they are doomed for all time. It is not a case of ethics; it is a plain case of necessity. The method by which this may be done is, first, for the American Negro to achieve a new economic solidarity.
W. E. B. Du Bois
If we practice hard enough, we can become thoroughly interested in even the simplest things of daily life, the way a child would. The smallest things would become so meaningful, they might even be worth a few words or a photograph, whatever method you use to capture them.
John Dickerson
For my part, as a filmmaker, I’ve never been a fly-on-the-wall documentarian. I have no commitment to that method. I believe it’s a lie.
Joshua Oppenheimer
The secret for someone in my position is to keep it simple. Keep possession and keep the ball moving quickly so that you tire out your opponents; that’s my method.
Andrea Pirlo
It should now be clear why the method of Philosophy is so different from that of the natural sciences. Experiments are not made, because they would be utterly useless.
Charles D. Broad
Civilization is a method of living, an attitude of equal respect for all men.
Jane Addams
The discovery of deuterium and the marked differences in the physical and chemical properties of hydrogen and deuterium, together with an efficient method for the separation of these isotopes, have opened an interesting field of research in several of the major branches of science.
Harold Urey
I’m not a big method actor. I’m much more superficial.
Colin Quinn
Creation is not taking place now, so far as can be observed. Therefore, it was accomplished sometime in the past, if at all, and thus is inaccessible to the scientific method.
Henry M. Morris
Hollywood has got technology, method, and discipline.
Ali Fazal
I have no idea what ‘method actor’ means.
Viggo Mortensen
An infallible method of conciliating a tiger is to allow oneself to be devoured.
Konrad Adenauer
I used to think there was a scientific way to do things. Like a proper way to answer a question or that kind of stuff. It’s like, there’s not! There’s not a method, there’s not a science to it.
Hunter Hayes
Law is when you don’t have a method of solving a problem… It’s just nailing a proclamation on a wall saying, ‘Don’t do this.’
Jacque Fresco
For someone who claimed to have found the true method for seeking reliable knowledge, it is remarkable how wrong Descartes was about so many aspects of nature.
Steven Weinberg
James Franco is a Method actor. I respect Method actors, but he never snapped out of character. Whenever we’d have to get in the ring for boxing scenes, and even during practice, the dude was full-on hitting me.
Tyrese Gibson
X-Ray crystallography is nowadays an accurate and rapid method of determining conformation in the crystal lattice, which conformation usually corresponds to the preferred conformation in solution.
Derek Harold Richard Barton
After writing quite a few songs now, I have not a method but a way of being patient with a couple of verses or a certain set of chords. I can match them up quicker now than I used to. The one thing you do improve is songwriting.
Rory Gallagher
I am neither a method actor nor a trained one. So, I don’t generally prepare for any role. Becoming the character and being in that moment are most important.
Shruti Haasan
Paternalism is the method of government activism most amenable to an impoverished public sector.
Jacob Weisberg
I think I’m more the method acting school.
Morena Baccarin
The basic method to find asteroids hasn’t changed much in hundreds of years. So asteroids in a telescope look just like stars with one exception: They move with time.
Carrie Nugent
I guess maybe my method is to take self-care where you can – even if it is something sort of small and it’s not a whole routine. It’s this idea of resetting, shutting down, stepping away.
Meena Harris
We know we have a method of reaching people, but we have never wanted to preach. We like to make our views palatable, music that is easy to swallow, and I think we’ve done that.
Curt Smith
I give myself limits – not only financial limits, but I also limit my method of expression, and from within those limits, I try to come up with something new and interesting.
Rei Kawakubo
The reality is the Lean Startup method is not about cost, it is about speed. Lean startups waste less money, because they use a disciplined approach to testing new products and ideas.
Eric Ries
From Roger Bacon, the 13th century Franciscan who pioneered the scientific method, to George Lemaitre, the 20th century Belgian priest who first developed a mathematical foundation for the ‘Big Bang,’ people of faith have played a key role in advancing scientific understanding.
Kenneth R. Miller
I regard the endorsement of both the objective and a method – which can differ from one country to another- of democratization by the parties in the region as a basic requisite of democratization in the Middle East.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan
Hence, even in the domain of natural science the aid of the experimental method becomes indispensable whenever the problem set is the analysis of transient and impermanent phenomena, and not merely the observation of persistent and relatively constant objects.
Wilhelm Wundt
In politics, religion and other areas of culture, people disagree on the worth of competing ideas. There is no equivalent to the scientific method that can determine in a robust way which ideas match the real world, and which ones can be ruled out. So conflicting ideologies persist indefinitely.
Nathan Myhrvold
I am convinced there is no more effective method of preventing a war than a decisive stance illustrating that we are ready at any moment to repel possible attack.
Andrzej Duda
Let it be your constant method to look into the design of people’s actions, and see what they would be at, as often as it is practicable; and to make this custom the more significant, practice it first upon yourself.
Marcus Aurelius
The one effective method of defending one’s own territory from an offensive by air is to destroy the enemy’s air power with the greatest possible speed.
Giulio Douhet
I think equation guessing might be the best method to proceed to obtain the laws for the part of physics which is presently unknown. Yet, when I was much younger, I tried this equation guessing, and I have seen many students try this, but it is very easy to go off in wildly incorrect and impossible directions.
Richard P. Feynman
I want to do very useful buildings and I would like to find a method of producing these buildings through our technology because I think that this is the only way that we will gain wonderful environment easily in the future.
Minoru Yamasaki
If I took my characters home with me, half of my life would be a misery, I think. No, I tend to compartmentalize work from my life. I’m not terribly method.
Claire Danes
My first concert was Method Man and Redman because they came down to Kosovo.
Dua Lipa
Science is fun. Science is curiosity. We all have natural curiosity. Science is a process of investigating. It’s posing questions and coming up with a method. It’s delving in.
Sally Ride
I bake bread nearly every day; I use Jim Lahey’s no-knead method and leave it to rise overnight.
Ruth Reichl
There’s a lot of romanticisation of the intuitive actor and method acting and all kinds of notions about getting inside a character and coming out from there.
Edward Norton
When dealing with the insane, the best method is to pretend to be sane.
Hermann Hesse
They also explained how the sensors can monitor the levels of acetone on people’s breath, and this can be used to tell people who suffer from diabetes when their next insulin shot is due. This is a more discreet method than what is currently on the market.
Anne Campbell
I’ve said that I would play anything to do with ‘Star Wars.’ But really, deep down, I would love to come back as Darth Maul – that’s what I want to do. I would go crazy, go mental, lock myself in a cabin, you know. Do the whole ‘method’ for two or three months, spear-fishing and stuff, just to play the character again.
Ray Park
The marginalized did not create identity politics: their identities have been forced on them by dominant groups, and politics is the most effective method of revolt.
Stacey Abrams
Insurrection by means of guerrilla bands is the true method of warfare for all nations desirous of emancipating themselves from a foreign yoke. It is invincible, indestructible.
Giuseppe Mazzini
I’ve never been a method actress; I’ve never been that person that wants to imagine horrible things happening in your own life in order to exploit them for your emotional being in the movie. I’m just not good at doing that.
Isla Fisher
I really don’t have a method. I gravitate towards the organic/acoustic, but I still often complete songs musically before attempting to find the lyric.
Lou Barlow
I tend to solicit opinions from all those around me. I like to hear opinions and the rationale behind it from everybody in the room. Perhaps it’s the result of going to law school and using the Socratic method.
Theo Epstein
There’s this Method Man album called ‘Tical.’ It’s his first album. I would just listen to that every day, because the album feels like, if it were a film, it would be black and white. It feels like there’s a war percolating throughout the album itself. It’s dark, and it has a nice forward pace to it.
Mahershala Ali
Juilliard is wonderful in that they don’t pick just one way of working. They give you a palette. There is method acting. There is a lot of attention to Shakespeare and verse.
Christian Camargo
It will be thought that I am acting strangely in concerning myself at this day with what appears at first sight and simply a well-known method of fortune-telling.
A. E. Waite
Sequestration was not designed to be anyone’s ideal method for getting our hands around government spending, and it certainly isn’t mine.
Johnny Isakson
My method of helping someone is saying, ‘Wow, you look amazing. Let me help you look even better.’ I think tearing someone down is an awful thing to do. It has a lasting impression on people.
Carson Kressley
I have no sense of a model or predecessor when I write a memoir: For me, the form exists as a method of processing material that retains too many connections to life to be approached strictly and aesthetically. A memoir is a risk, a one-off, a bastard child.
Rachel Cusk
I’m not what you’d call a Method actor.
Bob Newhart
Tracking action without cutting is the least jarring method of placing the audience into a real-time experience where they are the ones making the subtle choices of where and when to look.
Steven Spielberg
I there represent that I sent notice of my method to Mr. Leibnitz before he sent notice of his method to me, and left him to make it appear that he had found his method before the date of my letter.
Isaac Newton
It must be able to assist in devising the method of solution of problems and not merely solve them.
Cliff Shaw
In England, literary pretence is more universal than elsewhere from our method of education.
James Payn
The country needs and, unless I mistake its temper, the country demands bold, persistent, experimentation. It is common sense to take a method and try it, if it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
Anthony Burgess
In order to keep the judiciary independent of the executive, the constitution provided impeachment as the only method for disciplining errant judges.
Prashant Bhushan
One of the most important things for me in terms of my working method is doubt. I get very insecure about my ideas. And I don’t say ‘insecure’ in kind of a paranoid way. I mean just: ‘Are they good enough?’ ‘Is this the right thing to do?’ I really beat myself up over that.
Bill Viola
Our nation is not a fully representative democracy if we do not have a one-person, one-vote method of directly electing our president. It disproportionately tilts favor to smaller states with smaller populations.
Shaun King
As a reward for their efforts, however, those early Christians were beaten, stoned to death, thrown to the lions, tortured and crucified. Every conceivable method was used to stop them from talking.
Josh McDowell
I’d done the method bit before from, like, age 15 to 19. I was a Civil War re-enactor.
Cary Fukunaga
It was sort of his ‘Brando’ moment – his very ‘method’ moment. He just absorbed it and continued on.
Barry Pepper
I speak onstage to try to establish some method of communication. The songs are supposed to be a way of communicating. But speech and drinks and sometimes chocolates are also a way of communicating.
Jarvis Cocker
I’m not a classically trained actor. I’m not a product of Stavlovski method or anything like that.
Bob Newhart
No delusion is greater than the notion that method and industry can make up for lack of mother-wit, either in science or in practical life.
Thomas Huxley
There are some enterprises in which a careful disorderliness is the true method.
Herman Melville
There is a method in man’s wickedness; it grows up by degrees.
Francis Beaumont
A lot of male actors are method actors and they become the characters which they both were.
Izabella Scorupco
It’s really important when we’re writing our opinions to be transparent about what our decision method in the case is and how we get from Point A to B to C in the analysis.
Diane S. Sykes
Irregularity and want of method are only supportable in men of great learning or genius, who are often too full to be exact, and therefore they choose to throw down their pearls in heaps before the reader, rather than be at the pains of stringing them.
Joseph Addison
Art and science have their meeting point in method.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
I am a method actor, but I’m also a film actor as well as a method actor. Characters that don’t have humility, whether they are heroes or villains, are hard to relate to. All characters in every aspect of what we do should have humility. If they don’t, then they’re a cartoon character.
Vincent D’Onofrio
The method in which ‘Vadachennai’ is narrated gives a feeling as if you are travelling with the characters to the different eras where the various situations happen.
Aishwarya Rajesh
Since my mid-20s I have put more time than I would like to admit into keeping a youthful appearance. Most of that time was spent just buying random products, hoping some of them might actually work! Sadly that method resulted in a huge amount of time and money wasted.
Nick Viall
What this means is that we shouldn’t abbreviate the truth but rather get a new method of presentation.
Edward Tufte
I’m wide open to getting married, but actors are not easy people to date. You end up sharing that person with this other mistress that is their career. I very much like the traditional courtship method of making a date. That’s what they do in normal places, but Hollywood’s not normal.
Seth MacFarlane
Walking is my main method of relaxation. I don’t go over my lines or try to solve the world’s problems, I just enjoy the scenery and the wildlife.
Kevin Whately
You know, I’ve never been much of a method actor. I feel like, with every project I go in extremely prepared and I like to have a good time.
Elisha Cuthbert
I’m not a method actor; I hope you know that!
Jason Statham
I’m all for ‘tools,’ not ‘schools,’ of therapy. To me, the schools of therapy compete much like religions, or even cults, all claiming to know the cause and to have the best method for treating people.
David D. Burns
In one of the largest studies ever done on the effects of executive coaching – over 70,000 respondents – we learned that the biggest mistake coaches make is in not following up. It didn’t matter who the coach was or what method they used. Failing to follow up made any approach to coaching ineffective.
Marshall Goldsmith
When I listen to a basic thought, I try to visualise the cinema in it. Sometimes it is dark, sometimes boyish, sometimes amateurish. It is a trial and error method. But the bottom line is that I want to entertain the audience.
Fahadh Faasil
Impeachment is not a remedy for private wrongs; it’s a method of removing someone whose continued presence in office would cause grave danger to the nation.
Charles Ruff
The goalposts are still very different. As an actress, you have to earn people’s respect, be professional, turn up on time. Whereas guys can get away with a lot and pass off bad behaviour as, ‘Oh, he’s so method!’
Phoebe Fox
Some of my colleagues seem more interested in using every procedural method possible to keep the Senate from doing anything than they are in creating jobs or helping Americans struggling in a difficult economy.
Al Franken
I’m not a method actor. I try to stay separate but to imagine what they’d feel, to put myself in their shoes.
Tuppence Middleton
You can tell the depth of a person based on the quality of the questions they ask. We can measure the depth of humanity by a similar method. Space compels us to ask deeper questions.
Dylan Taylor
In Washington, the accepted method for passing along information about how the government fails to meet real-world needs is to leak it.
Timothy Noah
For film and games, there is now a fantastic method of actors portraying characters which don’t necessarily look like themselves. And yet you’ve still got the heart and soul of the performance.
Andy Serkis
Every actor comes with their own experience, method, methodology.
Todd Haynes
People use the Method as a shield; it shields them from being vulnerable. I hear all these young actors who are like, ‘I’m Method, I’m gonna go live in the house, you know, I totally get it, I’ve done it, I’ve been there’, but one thing I know is it kills spontaneity.
Mark Ruffalo
Maybe I’m secretly in my soul a method actor.
Poppy Montgomery
With the phase-contrast method still in the first somewhat primitive stage, I went in 1932 to the Zeiss Works in Jena to demonstrate. It was not received with such enthusiasm as I had expected.
Frits Zernike
I am spontaneous and not a method actor.
Rishi Kapoor
I just want to be told a story, and I want to believe I’m living that story, and I don’t give a thought to influences or method or any other writerly concerns.
Anne Tyler
I’m a method actress in my songs, which is why it’s hard to sing them.
Joni Mitchell
Can you explore real issues as a fake character? Yes – it’s called acting. Or fiction. But acting is not a method of engaging with the actual world, just as pretending to know what a character might eat does not a novel make – much less make that make-believe real.
Kevin Young
I know no method to secure the repeal of bad or obnoxious laws so effective as their stringent execution.
Ulysses S. Grant
I’m dirty in an argument; I’ll win by any method. But I change my mind all the time and I will admit when I’m wrong.
Sheila Hancock
I’m no Method actor. I’ve tried staying in character, and it’s just exhausting.
Cara Delevingne
While the notion that torture works has been glorified in television shows and movies, the simple truth is this: torture has never been an effective interrogation method.
Jerrold Nadler
There is a reason it is called fossil fuel-it is an outdated method of getting power.
Alexandra Paul
People who have no hold over their process of thinking are likely to be ruined by liberty of thought. If thought is immature, liberty of thought becomes a method of converting men into animals.
Muhammad Iqbal
There’s no such thing as The Method. The term ‘method-acting’ is so much nonsense. There are many methods, many techniques.
Susan Strasberg
Unlike fuel-economy standards, the most common method of reducing demand for oil over the past thirty years, a gas tax doesn’t tell people what kind of car to drive. It simply raises the price of gasoline and lets people adjust their behavior accordingly.
James Surowiecki
