When young I did my best to undo that bit of the British Empire I found myself in: that is, old Southern Rhodesia.
You’ve just got to do the best that you can.
I don’t think I ever got the hang of the writers’ room. I love collaborating with people, but I really do my best work alone, and I think I would want to – if I did something again, I think I’d want to take total ownership the way Aaron Sorkin or David Kelley does.
I believe that I often bring out the best in somebody’s talents.
Speaking of Twitter, I don’t even know if I composed a blog entry in 2009, as I was too busy parceling my every thought into cute 140-character sound bites. I used to only worry about being pithy for a living; now some of my best lines are wasted on a free app!
I have this theory that your first film is always your best film in some way. I always try to get back to that moment when you’re not relying on things you’ve done before.

The 1st period is won by the best technician. The 2nd period is won by the kid in the best shape. The 3rd period is won by the kid with the biggest heart.
As soon as someone tells me: ‘You’re rather sexy,’ I wish I could disappear. If somebody says: ‘You were voted the world’s sexiest man,’ I have no idea what that means. How do I respond? ‘Thank you’ is the best you can do. George Clooney is the world’s sexiest man, anyway.
There is only one real sin and that is to persuade oneself that the second best is anything but second best.
If being an attractive woman got you attention for directing, then the entire ‘best director’ category would be comprised of models. To me, that is just the most ludicrous connection that you could make.
If I am a cup maker, I’m interested in making the best cup I possibly can. My effort goes into that cup, not what people think about it.
Where I am today… I still have my ups and downs, but I take it one day at a time and I just hope that I can be the best that I can possibly be, not only for myself, but also young people that are out there today that need someone to look up to.
I was raised not to be rude, but I also try to get the best work out of people.
Italians know about human nature – they understand human nature perhaps better than anyone else does. They know that people are weak and greedy and lazy and dishonest and they just try to make the best of it; to work around it.

Your performance depends on your people. Select the best, train them and back them. When errors occur, give sharper guidance. If errors persist or if the fit feels wrong, help them move on. The country cannot afford amateur hour in the White House.
The best doctor is the one you run to and can’t find.
Expect the best, plan for the worst, and prepare to be surprised.
Sometimes you get the best light from a burning bridge.
I’m so in control of my life, you shouldn’t dislike anything I do-because I’m not only in the best place I’ve ever been, but it keeps getting better and better.
I have long since come to believe that people never mean half of what they say, and that it is best to disregard their talk and judge only their actions.
