Peter Ustinov

We are not nouns, we are verbs. I am not a thing - an actor, a writer - I am a person who does things - I write, I act - and I never know what I`m going to do next. I think you can be imprisoned if you think of yourself as a noun.

Stephen Fry

Revenge is an act of passion; vengeance of justice.

Carlo Rubbia

Fearing death meant also fearing life, which stole all meaning from the act of living.
