10 QUOTES WITH «DETACH»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word detach.
1
Katie Aselton
As an actor, you're lucky if you get a month before a project starts. There are times when you get a day before a project starts. So to be able to really sit and inhabit that mind and the story is really beneficial, and it really helps for me to be able to then compartmentalize as we're shooting and detach and go somewhere else.
2
Robert Bresson
An old thing becomes new if you detach it from what usually surrounds it.
3
Francisco Costa
I'm so not interested in gossip. It just gives me the creeps. I love the work; I love what I do. If somebody sends me an interview that has any connotation of something that's not interesting or genuine, I'm not interested. I really detach myself from it.
4
Frank Darabont
I think once you've finished a movie you really have to detach from it so that you can come back and watch it as an audience member.
5
Laura Hillenbrand
I have to detach myself completely from aspirations. I hardly ever listen to music anymore because it arouses all of this yearning in me.
6
Stephen Merchant
The reason I keep talking about a wife and saying the word 'wife' on stage is because it seems a funny word to me. The more you say it, the more it seems to detach from that person and become this sort of abstract thing: that you would set out to find a wife, that it would be an objective like buying a new car.
7
Jack O'Connell
I was a youngster looking up to dudes like Vicky McClure, Joe Dempsie and Michael Socha - in fact, he was a big influence on how I was able to detach drama from the all-singing, all-dancing stigma.
8
Katey Sagal
You know, it's hard sometimes to just detach yourself from what you're doing.
9
Johannes Tauler
Man must do his part and detach himself from created things.
10
Lewis Thomas
We are told that the trouble with modern man is that he has been trying to detach himself from nature... In this scenario, Man comes on as a stupendous lethal force, and the Earth is pictured as something delicate, like rising bubbles at the surface of a country pond, or flights of fragile birds.
