I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
A lot of people are crazy, cruel and negative. They got a little too much time on their hands to discuss everybody else. I have a limited amount of energy to blow in a day.

Just because you miss shots, you can't doubt yourself. It's easier said than done.
Big shots are only little shots who keep shooting.
Glamour invites us to live in a different world. It has to simultaneously be mysterious, a little bit distant - that's why, often in these glamour shots, the person is not looking at the audience, it's why sunglasses are glamorous - but also not so far above us that we can't identify with the person.
I design my shots. I walk the rehearsal as the camera and say 'this is where I want to be... I want this look.
I enjoy 'Life Aquatic.' I think that one, from a visual standpoint, is just such a fun, visual movie to look at, whether it's the shots of the ship cut down the middle, that set where you can see everyone in each of their rooms doing whatever and moving about - something like that, I could watch that on a loop for an hour.
When you hear my lyrics, you hear the shots that I throw at people. I throw shots because I always been the underdog. I got rejected so many times, and I say it in my lyrics constantly.
Exterior shots showing blue skies add a levity and brightness to each show.
Golf is a thinking man's game. You can have all the shots in the bag, but if you don't know what to do with them, you've got troubles.
Chi Chi Rodriguez
I've always believed no matter how many shots I miss, I'm going to make the next one.
I have to fight to keep my image really me... I rejected some gorgeous publicity shots because they just didn't look like me.

I got rabies shots for biting the head off a bat but that's OK - the bat had to get Ozzy shots.
On my left the shooting had the sharp explosion of the infantry artillery, on my right could be heard the sporadic cannon shots thundering from the front, and up above the sky was clear and the sun bright.
I go for my shots with no regrets, even if I play to the fence.
One of the main reasons I am so drawn to Hitchcock is that he planned his shots way in advance on story-boards, which he designed like classic paintings (he was an art connoisseur). It's why he found shooting on set boring - because he had already composed the film in his head.
