Edward Zwick Quotes and Sayings
Quotes by Edward Zwick

I hope you like these Edward Zwick quotes from my collection of quotes about life.

I think it's too easy often to find a villain out of
the headlines and to then repeat that villainy again and again and again.
You know, traditionally, America has always looked
to scapegoat someone as the boogie man.
- Edward Zwick

Sometimes when we weep in the movies we weep for ourselves or for a life unlived.
Or we even go to the movies because we want to resist
the emotion that's there in front of us.
I think there is always a catharsis that I look for
and that makes the movie experience worthwhile.
- Edward Zwick

Samurai culture did exist really, for hundreds of years
and the notion of people trying to create some sort of a moral code,
the idea that there existed certain behaviors that
could be celebrated and that could be operative in a life.
- Edward Zwick

but people have to understand why you're showing them
the things you are showing them.

is the opportunity to remain a kind of perpetual student.

the debasement of children or the destruction of a country.

There is a segment of the American population that
has been excluded from the national myth,
and that should be redressed.
- Edward Zwick

It seems that almost every time a valuable natural
resource is discovered in the world-whether it be diamonds,
rubber, gold, oil, whatever-often what results is a
tragedy for the country in which they are found.
Making matters worse, the resulting riches from these
resources rarely benefit the people of the country from which they come.
- Edward Zwick

There is something universal in the theme of a man
trying to save his family in the midst of the most terrible circumstances.
It is not limited to Sierra Leone.
This story could apply to any number of places where
ordinary people have been caught up in political events beyond their control.
- Edward Zwick

To me this movie is about what is valuable.
To one person it might be a stone; to someone else,
a story in a magazine; to another, it is a child.
The juxtaposition of one man obsessed with finding
a valuable diamond with another man risking his life
to find his son is the beating heart of this film.
- Edward Zwick

There is no reason why challenging themes and engaging
stories have to be mutually exclusive -
in fact,
each can fuel the other.
As a filmmaker, I want to entertain people first and foremost.
If out of that comes a greater awareness and understanding
of a time or a circumstance,
then the hope is that change can happen.
- Edward Zwick

It is what you think about.
- Dale Carnegie PHOTO

No written law has ever been more binding
than unwritten custom supported by popular opinion.
- Carrie Chapman Catt

Life does not consist mainly,

If I feel incompetent I will think of past success.
If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.
Today I will be the master of my emotions.
- Og Mandino

Men and women are not prisoners of fate,

The very nature of the world is constant change.
You set a goal and create a plan to achieve it;

The challenge is to retain your goals
while adapting your tactics.
Relax and stay flexible in order to reach
your goals and maintain your happiness.
