Jonathan Miller QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A lot of high-level scientists are in fact people of almost universal interest.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
After working as a creative marketing consultant for several independent publishers I could see that authors who self publish are often without the opportunity to get help in raising awareness of their work and obtaining support in an active way to promote themselves and their books.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
Argumentative exhibitions bring issues to life in a way that very much irritates traditional curators who want to see their pictures valued for themselves.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
As we know from the work of certain fundamental physicists, people like Einstein were very dependent upon conjuring up visual images in order to imagine things which otherwise were not easily formulated.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
Being a doctor has taught me a lot about directing. You're doing the same thing: You're reconstructing the manifold of behavior to the point where an audience says, yes, that's exactly like people I know.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
Besides, science creates its own agenda. There are problems leftover at the end of the day which you have to solve the next morning.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
But I don't think that the visual arts, or any art, have much to do with science.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
Errors of taste are very often the outward sign of a deep fault of sensibility.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
I became startled by the extraordinary difference between something whose surface is completely invisible which only makes itself present by virtue of what it reflects, and a window, which doesn't make itself apparent at all, in the ideal case.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
I spend a lot of my time trying to draw the attention of actors to the minute and subtle details of human behavior, which was the sort of thing I was looking at when I was a neurologist.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
I was trained as a neurologist, and then I went into the theater, and if you're brought up to think of yourself as a biological scientist of some sort, pretty well everything else seems frivolous by comparison.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
I wasn't driven into medicine by a social conscience but by rampant curiosity.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
I'm not against asking the audience to work, but I think what you have now is a sort of gratuitous deconstruction as a result of a fashion of literary deconstructionism indicating that there are no meanings.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
I'm not really a Jew; just Jew-ish, not the whole hog.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
It's not that Shakespeare is frivolous, but you spend your time just getting people to dress up in other people's costumes and pretending to be people that they're not, and you think, after the years go by, well, what on earth was all that about?
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
Now, that is in a way also what scientists are trying to do they're trying to get people to see that the world can be represented in an alternative way and that it's right.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
People are already self-selected by the time they've decided to become scientists.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
People can't draw now and don't feel it's necessary. Art students don't seem to want to draw.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
Science is a self-sufficient activity.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
Someone like Einstein was quite clearly a moralist, and he had a very highly developed political vision and was very spiritual in his way, and there are many biologists and physicists of the first order who are like that.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
The burden of the past is only, I think, oppressive when you've got to go on the experience of the avant garde.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
The entire nature of artmaking changed fundamentally. I mean everything changed between about 1890 and 1910. Science itself changed. Uncertainty crept into science.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
The great operas, and I'm thinking of the great musical dramas, draw your attention to what it's like to be human.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
The rules of composition and harmony and counterpoint are actually regarded as dead.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
The thing about science is that it's an accurate picture of the world.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
What I should have been, you see, is a neurologist.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
What makes literature interesting is that it does not survive its translation. The characters in a novel are made out of the sentences. That's what their substance is.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
What people want is not what some would call imaginative and often austere productions but very lavish productions which cast back into the auditorium an image of their affluence.
Quotation of Jonathan Miller
You spend ten years of your life being trained to do one thing, and you're being taught to think that it's the most serious thing that anyone could possibly do, and then suddenly you find yourself doing something that in some respects is the epitome of frivolity.
