Other times you can get showy for three minutes,
and that's OK with certain films.

you have to fit right in.
You have to understand Ang, respect him and be part
of the team and not be in charge of it -
he is in charge of it.
- Dennis Muren

It goes beyond acting.

well there is such a sword called Green Destiny.
It is green because you keep twisting it,
it's an ancient skill, you keep twisting it and knocking
it and twisting it until it is very elastic and light.

Sometimes films ignore other points of view because
it's simpler to tell the story that way,

points of view and situations,
the more real the story is.
- Ang Lee

I think the book struck me in a few ways that I thought

- Ang Lee

On a Chinese film you just give orders,

Here, you have to convince people, you have to tell

Democracy.

Repressed anger still is anger, it just isn't expressed.
If you truly have no anger, you are blessed and joyful.
If you have repressed anger, know that you have anger,
you just haven't expressed that anger.
Go ahead, express your anger briefly,
pound pillows, scream, curse.
Then take a deep breath, and get over it.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Where there is no accusation of "fault,"
there can be no anger.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

During his training, a baseball player strives
to make each swing better than the last.
The repetition of a faulty swing would be worse than useless.
It would ingrain bad habits.
The same is true of emotional responses.
If we allow ourselves to continue to have the same angry responses,
we just entrench our anger habit.
But if we strive - through consciousness, visualization, and coaching -
to moderate our anger response,
over time, we can train ourselves to respond
to events as we choose - without anger.
You can't magically be free from anger tomorrow,
but you can put yourself on your own training program
that will reduce the frequency and intensity
of your anger response day by day, year by year.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Cry for the souls of the angry,
for they sleep the troubled sleep of the damned.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Anger is a destructive emotion
that becomes instinctive over the years.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Once you have seen the truth
you must make the decision to let go
of the pain, anger, and resentment you have been holding on to.
This requires you to take action.
If you are attached to your pain, resentment,
and self-righteousness, and addicted to your emotional reactions,
this will be a difficult step for you.
Taking action requires letting go of the very thing
you have been holding on to for so many years.
There is comfort in what we find familiar,
even if we are experiencing pain and suffering.
The pain and suffering itself becomes the familiarity we seek.
It takes absolute faith in yourself
plus courage, will, and discipline to let go.
But once you let go, it will be as if
the weight of the world has been taken off your shoulders.
In this process it is important to forgive
not just the others in our lives, but also ourselves.
For most people, giving ourselves
the gift of forgiveness is very challenging.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Man should forget his anger before he lies down to sleep.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

When one gets angry, it is always angry AT someone -
perhaps a friend or spouse, perhaps a stranger,
perhaps the nameless "they" - "those people at the bank wronged me,"
perhaps God, or perhaps oneself.
In any case, when one gets angry,
they want to find someone to be "responsible" for what happened.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Fair peace becomes men; ferocious anger belongs to beasts.
- Ovid

Anger is a wind which blows out the lamp of the mind.
- Robert Green Ingersoll

Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit.
Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever,
even if your whole world seems upset.
- Saint Francis de Sales

Keep cool; anger is not an argument.
- Daniel Webster

Whenever you're in conflict with someone,
there is one factor that can make the difference
between damaging your relationship and deepening it.
That factor is attitude.
- William James

It isn't the mountain ahead that wears you out;
it's the grain of sand in your shoe.
- Robert W. Service

When anger rises, think of the consequences.
- Confucius

Anger and jealousy can no more bear to lose sight of their objects than love.

Anger, if not restrained, is frequently more hurtful
to us than the injury that provokes it.

It eats upon the host.
But anger is like fire.
It burns it all clean.
