Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

In the the late seventies and early eighties, I played background roles in thirty movies ... Woody Allen movies, Scorsese films, you name it.

Tobin Quotes By Matthew Tobin Anderson

I've always enjoyed that kind of thing - thinking about the production of narrative and why it is that when we read a novel, we don't notice the fact that someone who might be very close-mouthed or tight-lipped is perfectly willing to tell us a story in 600 or 700 pages. — Matthew Tobin Anderson

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Wilson

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

I'm an actor. The fact that I'm involved in Jigsaw, I don't approach Jigsaw any differently than I approached The Nordic in 'The Firm' or FBI Agent Stokes in 'Mississippi Burning.' It's the same deal. It's just that the effect is sometimes different. So I say, people ask me, 'How does it feel to be a horror icon?' I'm thrilled. It's great. — Tobin Bell

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Heath

I'm extremely blessed with my teammates. They're such an encouragement in my life. I have people praying for me and I'm praying for them as well. — Tobin Heath

Tobin Quotes By Betsy Tobin

Cats, I decided, had certain advantages over men. There were loyal without being sycophantic, independent without being absent, and affectionate without being rapacious. That they choke up balls of fur and leave dead rodents at my feet is unfortunate. But it is not grounds for divorce. — Betsy Tobin

Tobin Quotes By Tobin T. Buhk

The damn vermin are so numerous that I am afraid to sneeze, for fear the damned lice would regard it as gong for dinner, and eat me up - Robert Cobb Kennedy — Tobin T. Buhk

Tobin Quotes By Amy E. Tobin

The mirror of humanity always reflects the need for a Savior. — Amy E. Tobin

Tobin Quotes By Paul Tobin

Monsieur, please stay back. You are old and frail, and I would not have you hurt in this clash. — Paul Tobin

Tobin Quotes By James Tobin

At the same time it offered the hope, as it still does, that improved understanding could better the lot of mankind. For me, growing up in the 1930s, the two motivations powerfully reinforced each other. — James Tobin

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

Watching a child first learn to crawl on a carpet somehow has more significance to you as you get a little older. Perhaps it is that you have suffered more. — Tobin Bell

glorious, blush-worthy surprise. — Maureen Johnson

Most important, I have learned from my colleagues and students. — James Tobin

Tobin Quotes By R.S. Mollison-Read

Maven Gustav, what is that awful noise?" Tobin bellowed, holding his hands over his ears.
"Why, it's my very own creation!" Gustav replied, beaming with pride. "I made this spell to be activated in the event of a castle emergency. In all my tests, it never failed to wake everyone," he noted, proudly.
"Yes, Gustav. It's fantastically loud. Well done. But what is the emergency, and how do we turn the alarm off? — R.S. Mollison-Read

Tobin Quotes By Matthew Tobin Anderson

Occasionally people ask me how it is I write different types of things, and my answer to that is it's very natural. You get bored writing one kind of thing all the time. — Matthew Tobin Anderson

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Wilson

It is our tendency to look at people as opposed to looking into them. — Tobin Wilson

Tobin Quotes By Matthew Tobin Anderson

I write for teens partially to work out whatever it was that I needed to from my own teenage years. — Matthew Tobin Anderson

Tobin Quotes By Richard Rohr

We must approach the Scriptures with humility and patience, with our own agenda out of the way, and allow the Spirit to stir the deeper meaning for us. Otherwise we only hear what we already agree with or what we have decided to look for! Isn't that rather obvious? As Paul will say, "We must teach not in the way philosophy is taught, but in the way the Spirit teaches us: We must teach spiritual things spiritually" (1 Corinthians 2:13). As Tobin Hart says, this mode of teaching is much more about transformation than information. That changes the entire focus and goal. — Richard Rohr

Tobin Quotes By Matthew Tobin Anderson

A library is an adjustable wrench for opening the head. — Matthew Tobin Anderson

Tobin Quotes By Matthew Tobin Anderson

Certain elements of teen life that, 10 years ago, were very important to me still, are becoming less so as I get older. I mean, I've kinda gotten over, I guess I'm saying, the fact that I had trouble getting a date for the prom. — Matthew Tobin Anderson

Tobin Quotes By James Tobin

Yale places great stress on undergraduate and graduate teaching. I like teaching, and I do a lot of it. — James Tobin

Tobin Quotes By R.S. Mollison-Read

The horrifying sound of breaking glass, and a thunderous tirade of splintering pieces hitting the floor, stunned them all. Tobin spun around in shock. The massive Travelling Mirror, through which Tobin and Murphy had so recently arrived, shattered into hundreds of tiny pieces, cascading down the wall, and onto the floor in an enormous pile of jagged edges. The hall was still as everyone stared at the shattered mirror in shocked silence.
"Oh dear. Oh dear, dear, dear," whispered Elbert. — R.S. Mollison-Read

Tobin Quotes By Jacqueline L. Tobin

As William Ferris is fond of saying, "in Africa when an older person dies, a library burns. — Jacqueline L. Tobin

Tobin Quotes By R.S. Mollison-Read

Shaking his head, Tobin turned back to his picnic spread, and there, sitting on the end of the checkered cloth, and helping himself to one of Tobin's cupcakes, was a tiny brown squirrel.
Tobin blinked in surprise.
The squirrel was exceptionally bold. He made absolutely no move to leave, despite Tobin's frown, and merely stuffed more pink icing into his mouth with one tiny paw. His ears were tufted into small points, and he tilted his head to the side as he surveyed Tobin with bright, inquisitive eyes.
Tobin had to laugh. "Well, I suppose I don't mind sharing with you, little guy, even if you did eat one of my cupcakes," Tobin chuckled to himself.
"I should hope so. Frankly, I'm surprised that you thought you could even eat five cupcakes all by yourself," the squirrel replied airily. — R.S. Mollison-Read

Tobin Quotes By Cormac McCarthy

For let it go how it will, he said, God speaks in the least of creatures. The kid thought him to mean birds or things that crawl but the expriest, watching, his head slightly cocked, said: No man is give leave of that voice. The kid spat into the fire and bent to his work. I aint heard no voice, he said. When it stops, said Tobin, you'll know you've heard it all your life. Is that right? Aye. — Cormac McCarthy

Tobin Quotes By Matthew Tobin Anderson

Older teens tend to write to me and say, 'Thank you for not writing down to teenagers.' — Matthew Tobin Anderson

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Heath

Whenever you're working towards something greater than yourself, it's almost a selflessness that the Lord delights in when you're serving your teammate or your friend or your sister in Christ. — Tobin Heath

Tobin Quotes By Nelson DeMille

I thought again of how Tobin had already killed five good people and was about to be the cause of two more dying. I couldn't believe that this little turd had actually caused all this death and misery. The only explanation I had for it was that short people with beady eyes and big appetites were ruthless and dangerous. — Nelson DeMille

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Hart

When we fail to harmonize and integrate, living systems, from individuals to families and countries, tend to move toward either chaos or rigidity. — Tobin Hart

Tobin Quotes By Cormac McCarthy

No man is give leave of that voice. The kid spat into the fire and bent to his work. I aint heard no voice, he said. When it stops, said Tobin, you'll know you've heard it all your life. — Cormac McCarthy

Tobin Quotes By Jonathan S. Tobin

American friends of Israel as well as those who understand the grave threat that Iran poses to U.S. interests and security need to face the fact that this president has abandoned them. — Jonathan S. Tobin

Tobin Quotes By Matthew Tobin Anderson

All of my books, which are supposedly, I mean they're called YA novels, my hope is that adults would find no reason not to read them if they read them. — Matthew Tobin Anderson

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Wilson

After the shadows comes light. — Tobin Wilson

Tobin Quotes By Matthew Tobin Anderson

One of the series I like is D.M. Cornish's 'Monster Blood Tattoo,' in which he creates a whole language. Kids who are reading that are building a language in their heads. There's no real cognitive difference. I think kids are excited by language, and they're not always given credit for that. — Matthew Tobin Anderson

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Wilson

The only way to engage god is to meet one of the three in time. We meet the Father as Creator, the Son as Redeemer, and the Holy Spirit as the dispenser of God's grace. — Tobin Wilson

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

I learned that I could not do enough work; it's always incomplete. When you ask a question, the answer will raise four more questions, and those four will become eight. — Tobin Bell

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Wilson

To speak of mystery in a Christian sense means that the human mind is finite and not fully able to understand, deduce or even contain the deep structures of God's reality. — Tobin Wilson

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

'Saw' is a particularly popular film with 14-30 year olds, so I'll be at a playground and meet six or 10 skateboarders who just wanna talk about 'Saw.' — Tobin Bell

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

One never wants to do anything that's going to break that 'sculpture of the character' that's been done so far, or make anything that's been done so far become illogical in any way, so you always want to try to connect when you're doing a series of films that has a continuous character. — Tobin Bell

Tobin Quotes By Cormac McCarthy

You dont get your black ass away from this fire I'll kill you graveyard dead. He looked to where Glanton sat. Glanton watched him. He put the pipe in his mouth and rose and took up the apishamore and folded it over his arm. Is that your final say? Final as the judgement of God. The black looked once more across the flames at Glanton and then he moved away in the dark. The white man uncocked the revolver and placed it on the ground before him. Two of the others came back to the fire and stood uneasily. Jackson sat with his legs crossed. One hand lay in his lap and the other was outstretched on his knee holding a slender black cigarillo. The nearest man to him was Tobin and when the black stepped out of the darkness bearing the bowieknife in both hands like some instrument of ceremony Tobin started to rise. The white man looked up drunkenly and the black stepped forward and with a single stroke swapt off his head. — Cormac McCarthy

Tobin Quotes By L. Tobin

The hurt that troubled children create is never greater than the hurt they feel. — L. Tobin

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

An actor puts himself in the hands of a director. And the director's first responsibility, obviously, is to tell the story, but the smallest thing that's not true reads on the screen. So if a director sees that an actor is not believable, he needs to help him become believable. — Tobin Bell

Tobin Quotes By Cormac McCarthy

I aint heard no voice, he said. When it stops, said Tobin, you'll know you've heard it all your life. Is that right? Aye. The kid turned the leather in his lap. The expriest watched him. At night, said Tobin, when the horses are grazing and the company is asleep, who hears them grazing? Dont nobody hear them if they're asleep. Aye. And if they cease their grazing who is it that wakes? Every man. Aye, said the expriest. Every man. — Cormac McCarthy

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Heath

Your teammates see you through the good and the bad. They see where your foundation lies. — Tobin Heath

Tobin Quotes By Lauren Myracle

Tobin turned to Angie. "I'm such an idiot. Why didn't you remind me?"
She smiled drowsily. "That you're an idiot? Okay: you're an idiot."
"Oh that's great, thanks," he said. She giggled. — Lauren Myracle

Tobin Quotes By James Tobin

A long decade ago economic growth was the reigning fashion of political economy. It was simultaneously the hottest subject of economic theory and research, a slogan eagerly claimed by politicians of all stripes, and a serious objective of the policies of governments. The climate of opinion has changed dramatically. Disillusioned critics indict both economic science and economic policy for blind obeisance to aggregate material "progress," and for neglect of its costly side effects. Growth, it is charged, distorts national priorities, worsens the distribution of income, and irreparably damages the environment. Paul Erlich speaks for a multitude when he says, "We must acquire a life style which has as its goal maximum freedom and happiness for the individual, not a maximum Gross National Product." [in Nordhaus, William D. and James Tobin., "Is growth obsolete?" Economic Research: Retrospect and Prospect Vol 5: Economic Growth. Nber, 1972. 1-80] — James Tobin

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

There's the moment in 'Saw' where I get up off of the floor at the end. That was shocking, because no one expects it. I thought they did that really, really well. — Tobin Bell

Tobin Quotes By Matthew Tobin Anderson

I completely love music. I used to be the music critic at 'The Improper Bostonian.' It's just something I've always loved very deeply. — Matthew Tobin Anderson

Tobin Quotes By Jonathan S. Tobin

By releasing these five top Taliban commanders, the U.S. is demonstrating that it is throwing in the towel in the long struggle against the Taliban and its al-Qaeda allies in Afghanistan. — Jonathan S. Tobin

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

It's a great challenge and a wonderful journey how to figure out how to be an artist and to carve my way. — Tobin Bell

Tobin Quotes By James Tobin

My father also happened to be an intellectual, as learned, literate, informed, and curious as anyone I have known. Unobtrusively and casually, he was my wise and gentle teacher. — James Tobin

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

There are a lot of considerations that come into play when you craft one of these 'Saw' scripts, and there's only so much you can put into them. — Tobin Bell

Tobin Quotes By Matthew Tobin Anderson

I eat broccoli. I think about the plot. I pace in circles for hours, counter-clockwise, listening to music. I try to think of one detail in the scene I'm about to write that I'm really excited about writing. Until I can come up with that one detail, I pace. — Matthew Tobin Anderson

Tobin Quotes By Betsy Tobin

It takes more than wings to release one from the bonds of kinship. — Betsy Tobin

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Heath

My platform might be a little bigger than someone else's, but everyone has a purpose. For me, that purpose in my life right now is soccer. There's a cool, personal testimony that goes along with it. — Tobin Heath

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Hart

Creation is not restricted to the artist but instead is about how we bring ourselves authentically into the world both through our doing and being. — Tobin Hart

Tobin Quotes By James Tobin

After the United States entered the war, I joined the Naval Reserve and spent ninety days in a Columbia University dormitory learning to be a naval officer. — James Tobin

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

Horror fans are very passionate people, and they are very much into the 'Saw' thing. So they watch sometimes as carefully as the writers and producers do, in terms of the way the story plays out. — Tobin Bell

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Heath

Even with my non-believing teammates, there is a great amount of unity and I truly believe that's God working. It's really cool in team sports when you're united around a belief or something you want to accomplish. — Tobin Heath

Tobin Quotes By James Tobin

At the time, my personal research objectives were to provide Keynesian economics with more rigorous foundations and to tighten and elaborate the logic of macroeconomic and monetary theory. — James Tobin

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

Anything that exists on the human palette is, from my point of view, fair game for artists to portray. You don't have to go see it if you don't want to, so don't go. — Tobin Bell

Tobin Quotes By Andrew Solomon

There is something ironic in prejudice against the disabled and their families, because their plight might befall anybody. Straight men are unlikely to wake up gay one morning, and white children don't become black; but any of us could be disabled in an instant. People with disabilities make up the largest minority in America; they constitute 15 percent of the population, though only 15 percent of those were born with their disability and about a third are over sixty-five. Worldwide, some 550 million people are disabled. The disability-rights scholar Tobin Siebers has written, The cycle of life runs in actuality from disability to temporary ability back to disablity, and that only if you are among the most fortunate. — Andrew Solomon

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

'Buried Alive' is a little scary, but also a comedy at the same time. — Tobin Bell

Tobin Quotes By Amy E. Tobin

May the fullness of God's love and His mercy shine as treasures to be found in every horizon. — Amy E. Tobin

Tobin Quotes By Matthew Tobin Anderson

I don't want to go out hunting for dismal topics to write about. — Matthew Tobin Anderson

Tobin Quotes By Bree Despain

He's not even singing," Tobin whispers to Daphne. They sit on the other side of the half circle of chairs in the music room. It's amusing that he thinks I don't know what he's saying. I can't actually hear their words over the singing, but I have spent the weekend mastering the art of lipreading. What isn't amusing, however, is that Tobin has caught on to the fact that I'm merely moving my own lips along with the rest of the choir. Daphne looks up at me. I stare down at the songbook in my hands. Maybe I should try singing along, but I don't know how to make my voice do what hers does, even if I want to. I feel her gaze leave me and I glance back at her.
"Maybe he's just intimidated," Daphne says. "It's his first day in the program."
My hands grow hot at the idea that she thinks I am afraid. I take a deep breath, tempering myself before I set the songbook on fire. — Bree Despain

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Wilson

The problem with modernism is that we actually believe, naively and arrogantly, that we can in some way hold any concept and grasp it - and if we cannot, they it is absurd and impossible and therefore nonexistent. — Tobin Wilson

Tobin Quotes By Matthew Tobin Anderson

It's insulting to believe that teens should have a different kind of book than an adult should. — Matthew Tobin Anderson

Tobin Quotes By Lee Tobin McClain

You can either trust God, or try to be God. Now which one do you think will be more successful?" He — Lee Tobin McClain

Tobin Quotes By Jessica Day George

We should do that," he whispered. "Wear flowers in our hair?" I was watching the ceremony and not really paying attention to Luka, despite the warmth of his arm. Tobin's eldest brother, the head of the household since their father's death some years ago, had come forward. Skarpin had surprised us by being as garrulous and emotional as Tobin and Ulfrid were silent and controlled. His red beard was a sharp contrast to his shaved head, and he had six earrings in each ear, a sign that he was a wealthy landowner. He took the loaf of bread from the priest and began the traditional praising of the bride's skills. "No," Luka said. "We should get married." Now I gave him my full attention. "What? — Jessica Day George

Tobin Quotes By John M. Tobin Jr.

She 's adorned Amply that in her husband's eye looks lovely,- The truest mirror that an honest wife Can see her beauty in. — John M. Tobin Jr.

Tobin Quotes By James Tobin

I studied economics and made it my career for two reasons. The subject was and is intellectually fascinating and challenging, particularly to someone with taste and talent for theoretical reasoning and quantitative analysis. — James Tobin

Tobin Quotes By Clara A. Tobin

Our world is like an enraged teen threatening to explode if an adult even raises a finger. — Clara A. Tobin

Tobin Quotes By Jolene Perry

Tobin's just a guy - like a ton of guys. Even as I run those words through my head, trying to convince myself, I know it's a lie. Tobin will never be just a guy. Not to me. And he shouldn't be just a guy to anyone who meets him or to anyone else that's lucky enough to love him. — Jolene Perry

Tobin Quotes By Matthew Tobin Anderson

The bedroom in my apartment is far too small to hold a nightstand. There is, however, this bookshelf. Yes, I stow whatever I'm reading on the lower shelf, but more importantly, it's where I keep a collection of ghost books. — Matthew Tobin Anderson

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

'Saw VI' has a really interesting theme about the ripple effect. Everything you do affects the guy next to you, which affects the guy next to him, which affects her over here. And you might think that what you're doing is not that significant, but just the way you respond to other people makes the world the way it is. — Tobin Bell

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

I was raised on Westerns. They were part of what going into the movies was. — Tobin Bell

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

If you're an impressionistic painter and you want to paint expressionism, you've got to change. You've got to figure out a way to do it and do it. If you've been playing jazz all your life and you want to start to play rock n' roll, blues, then do it. — Tobin Bell

Tobin Quotes By Amy E. Tobin

Choices are always with us. Faith, hope and love are decisions we make. They will leap over our barriers, tear down our walls and make the impossible -- possible. — Amy E. Tobin

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

Saw fans are manic, when it comes to details, so they're going to say, "Wait a minute! Why is that like that? It wasn't like that before." And, they're right. — Tobin Bell

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

I've worked with multiple directors throughout the 'Saw' series with a lot of conversations as they bring their particular installment to the screen. If I've been able to do anything throughout the course of these films, it's been to help shape dialogue and to try to make things as delicate and as intelligent as I can. — Tobin Bell

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Heath

Like anyone who has a relationship with Jesus knows, the coolest thing about it is that it's infinite how much you can learn and begin to understand. It's something that grabbed me. — Tobin Heath

Tobin Quotes By Matthew Tobin Anderson

A lot of the drive to make narratives came from having to play by myself as a 5- or 6-year-old in the woods. — Matthew Tobin Anderson

Tobin Quotes By Matthew Tobin Anderson

I was someone who really loved fantasy novels and science fiction novels. — Matthew Tobin Anderson

Tobin Quotes By Becca Tobin

I was a 'Glee' fan before I joined the show! Since my background is musical theater, it was exciting to see a TV show that incorporated music so much and in such a genius way. — Becca Tobin

Tobin Quotes By Amy E. Tobin

Your faithfulness and mercies forever abide,we trust in You Jehovah - Ahavah, The Lord is love. — Amy E. Tobin

Tobin Quotes By Amy E. Tobin

I, alone, can decide what my relationship with Christ becomes. — Amy E. Tobin

Tobin Quotes By Amy E. Tobin

A gift from God may not always be easy. However, every gift will hold treasures of God all its own. — Amy E. Tobin

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

All I can do is do my best work, try to create the best kind of moment to moment reality that I can do. That's what I do. I'm an actor. And all the rest of it is like baseball. You hit the ball. Sometimes it goes in the hole. Sometimes it goes to the player. — Tobin Bell

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Wilson

I want us to enter into the laughter of the God that is before, during and after the experience of being human, to swim in grace, to revel in messiness, to find joy in the suffering and love in the chaos. — Tobin Wilson

Tobin Quotes By Tobin Bell

I'm very happy to be a part of a very successful piece of art, as the 'Saw' films have been. One gets into this to participate. It's the coming together of a good story. So, that aspect of it has been just splendid. It really has nothing to do with me or my popularity. I'm fascinated. — Tobin Bell
