  3. Vincent Price:

    Suddenly in the '50s, a whole new group of actors came out: Marlon Brando, James Dean and Paul Newman, who were very moody and realistic. So actors like myself and Basil Rathbone and so on didn't really fit into those realistic dramas and we began to do costume pictures. This was really the only place we could go on working if we wanted to survive as actors. Most of the things of my later career have been costume pictures. They require a certain knowledge of the language, they require enunciation and a poetic approach to the language. Really, the one thing we have over the apes is our language, isn't it? That's about all.

  4. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    No condition of life is too bad to become good, better and even the best. As well, no human life is too damaged or beyond salvation. Besides, there is an iota or atom of sense right inside every so called nonsense. Yes of course, because when you remove non from every so called nonsense what remains is sense. Now, that is to say obviously, there is also always something in every nothing. Moreover, that signifies conclusively, your so called worst condition or circumstance isn't the worst actually. And your so called most miserable life isn't the most miserable in the real sense. For, God can effortlessly make up every so called worst condition to become the best. Even the most miserable life right here or out there, can become the most enviable life ever. In fact, God (almighty) can do all that and he will do even more than that. If only you do believe in his abilities and words undoubtedly. Because, it is ever meant to be unto you according to your own faith (Matthew 9:29). ~Emeasoba George
