But I find with Francis Bacon, some of the things were

But I find with Francis Bacon, some of the things were in the place, and someone who was connected with these schools of thought, and someone who had a motivation that equals the scope of the comedy and the tragedy in the plays.
Mark Rylance
It’s not name dropping, but not many people can say, like me, that they spent the day with the likes of Francis Bacon or that boring drunk Dylan Thomas. You don’t forget things like that.
Jeffrey Bernard
I was influenced very much by St. Francis of Assisi, whose idea was to radically live the gospel. He was not a priest, or even a brother. He was a layperson. His whole concept was to emulate Christ through the gospels, and to live it in a radical way.
Tom Catena
Francis Underwood was entirely based on Richard III. When Michael Dobbs wrote ‘House of Cards’ in the original British series, Richard III is what he based the character on.
Kevin Spacey
The world, more suffering than sinning, turns toward Pope Francis as in a conversation people turn to the person who is making sense of things.
Eugene Kennedy
I have never seen Francis Crick in a modest mood. Perhaps in other company he is that way, but I have never had reason so to judge him.
James D. Watson
In Pope Francis, I see a leader who lives every day in the image of Jesus. Under his guidance, the church is focused once again on providing comfort, compassion and salvation for sinners, the poor, and those who seek peace in an increasingly complex world. That’s my Catholicism.
Donna Brazile
Francis Bacon is one of my giant inspirations. I just love him to pieces.
David Lynch
I had a great job at school, St. Francis Elementary, where they asked for somebody to deliver milk, and they said you get a free carton of milk… the thing that I learned was that every kid that was sick or absent from school, I got to drink their milk too. I never missed a day of school.
Jim Harbaugh
Pope Francis reminds us of Pope John XXIII because both men share the same lack of self-consciousness, and neither needs to keep his guard up through the use of psychological defenses such as rationalization, projection or intellectualization.
Eugene Kennedy
I, Joseph Francis Buck, became a hair-plug addict.
Joe Buck
I think Francis at half form is better than anybody else by 50%, you know? I think it’s just that he has never… he has a late pick of the things that are ambitious enough for him.
John Milius
At Tenafly High, I was lucky to have some dedicated teachers; I’m especially indebted to my calculus instructor, Francis Piersa, who opened my eyes to the striking beauty of mathematics.
Eric Maskin
From his first hours as pope, Francis has re-enacted or spoken of the great pastoral transformation of Vatican II as his own agenda.
Eugene Kennedy
The issue of the environment as seen by Pope Francis is not a matter of purely scientific or, indeed, theological debate: it involves economic and political views on how the world’s poor can be brought out of poverty while protecting the environment.
John Cornwell
For me, beating Alistair Overeem means a lot, but the fight I’m looking for is the Francis Ngannou fight.
Jairzinho Rozenstruik
Movies I liked growing up were like Francis Ford Coppolla movies and Scorsese movies.
Owen Wilson
I did my first film with Francis Ford Copploa, which spoiled the hell out of me.
Alden Ehrenreich
Trump’s defense of white Anglo-Saxon Protestantism is gathering those who support him into a strong solidified base. Since the election of Francis, Republicans have been very wary of the Pope, attacking his liberal statements on homosexuality, global warming, and capitalism.
Anthea Butler
I went to see ‘Francis Ha,’ which I could certainly relate to. She ends up wandering the streets of Paris all alone – something I’ve ended up doing a number of times in capital cities around Europe.
Kevin Macdonald
Pope Francis might turn out to be one of the most popular figures in the world today.
Brian Kilmeade
I have decided never ever to put on weight again. Not even if Francis Ford Coppola were to offer me a role in exchange for putting on 25 kilos!
Ranvir Shorey
Burleigh, absolutely; and a lot about Elizabeth. I mean I found when I play Henry V a lot of connections with the hidden history of the connection between Francis Bacon and Elizabeth.
Mark Rylance
Francis Lawrence is an astonishing filmmaker, an incredibly gifted visual filmmaker. I have great respect for his work.
David Slade
I think that was very important to Bacon… personally. I think he went to great efforts to get a house for the Stratford man, to make it so difficult for us to prove that it was Francis Bacon, because it is very difficult to prove.
Mark Rylance
I was studying Francis of Assisi for quite some time, when Benedict was still the pope. And I was studying it for a song that I did for my last album, ‘Banga.’
Patti Smith
My best chance is that, in a happy moment, I hit upon St Francis as the subject for a series of plays. Others might have written them better: but, as I have written them, the advantage will probably remain mine.
Laurence Housman
My cousin Francis and I are in perfect accord – he wants Milan, and so do I.
Charles V
Rarely has a new player on the world stage captured so much attention so quickly – young and old, faithful and cynical – as has Pope Francis.
Nancy Gibbs
Francis Ford Coppola did this early on. You tape a movie, like a radio show, and you have the narrator read all the stage directions. And then you go back like a few days later and then you listen to the movie. And it sort of plays in your mind like a film, like a first rough cut of a movie.
Al Pacino
I get creeped out by Francis Bacon’s paintings, and I can’t say exactly why. They’re all really disturbing, and there is an almost nimbus-like quality behind some of his frightening characters and stuff.
Jonathan Demme
The process of my transformation came to a head with my discovery of St. Francis of Assisi during a pilgrimage I went on with a scout troop from my school.
Abbe Pierre
If you ignore the murdering and the conniving, Francis Underwood is an effective politician.
Kevin Spacey
The American political scientist Francis Fukuyama has argued that liberal democracies, with their political freedom and economic success, have three important pillars: a strong government, the rule of law, and democratic accountability. I would add a fourth: free markets.
Raghuram Rajan
The traditions of a nation are very important and the anthem written by Francis Scott Key in the early days of our nation should always be revered.
Lee Greenwood
Through his deferential yet decidedly determined demeanor, Pope Francis is not only setting a superior spiritual standard, but he is also leading a thorough transformation of the Catholic Church – rivaling any brand revitalization or corporate turnaround you could name.
Denise Morrison
When I criticize Joseph Beuys or Francis Bacon, nobody calls those opinions anti-male. Putting female artists or their subject matter off-limits is itself sexist and limiting.
Jerry Saltz
You cannot just be working in a vast, air-conditioned loft space and think you are going to make a decent painting. Francis Bacon had a special studio built, and he felt completely emasculated in there. I have to be somewhere comfortable.
Peter Doig
When Pope Francis touched down on French soil for the first time in his papacy with a visit to the European Parliament in Strasbourg last November, Ms. Royal was the senior French official there to greet him.
Elaine Sciolino
Few cities have been more definitely impressed upon the imagination of the world than San Francisco, this gray-hilled city on the peninsula by the hospitable bay, where Saint Francis protects the ships as he protected the birds of Assisi.
Edwin Markham
I like people like Andre Malraux, Edmund Wilson, Willa Cather, Robert Graves, Erik Erikson, and Francis Steegmuller.
Lee Radziwill
I love Disclosure. Dillon Francis. Bauuer. Flosstradamus. I listen to a lot of different genres.
Martin Garrix
‘Amoris Latetia’ reiterates that Pope Francis is interested in changing both the tone and reception of people and families in the church to a more hospitable, less judgmental environment.
Anthea Butler
I used to be a huge fan of Francis Ford Coppola.
Sudha Kongara
As much as I loved the model of St. Francis, I realized that I couldn’t afford to be poor, because unlike St. Francis, I’m not celibate. I was enlightened that God’s call to me was not poverty but generosity and simplicity. And I had to go back to the lesson I learned from my parents: that is, simplicity.
Bo Sanchez
While I fundamentally reject the notion that anyone who owned other human beings was either good, moral, or decent, Francis Scott Key left absolutely no doubt that he was a stone-cold bigot. He came from generations of plantation-owning bigots. They got wealthy off of it.
Shaun King
I did a film called ‘The Escape Artist’ for Francis Coppola. I had the title role.
Harry Anderson
Bill Gates recently picked up the ukulele. And Warren Buffett is a huge ukulele fan. I even got to strum a few chords with Francis Ford Coppola. It blows my mind that these people, who have everything in the world they could want, have picked up the ukulele and found a little bit of joy.
Jake Shimabukuro
Others too would occasionally entertain and privately express such doubts; though we all had been most solemnly warned by the cruel murder of Saint Francis.
Maria Monk
Just personally, I’ve been attached to ‘On the Road’ since 2007 and it was the greatest thing in my life when I got cast in it. I couldn’t believe it. When I was 17 and read the book, I looked it up on IMDb and it said that Francis Ford Coppola was going to direct it.
Garrett Hedlund
Pope Francis is not the first religious leader who has endorsed evolution and the Big Bang, but he is certainly one of the most influential.
Ken Ham
I learned from Francis Ford Coppola to treat the company like your family.
Mary Stuart Masterson
I grew up on film sets and I had a ball. It wouldn’t have had nearly as much fun if my dad had been working behind a desk somewhere. I remember being on the set of ‘The Godfather: Part III,’ and all the kids were running around and doing crazy things, and Francis Ford Coppola just embraced that.
Dominik Garcia-Lorido
It is my hope that Pope Francis realizes his time is better spent focusing on matters like religious tolerance and the sanctity of all life.
Paul Gosar
I really want to fight this big scary guy, Francis Ngannou.
Jairzinho Rozenstruik
I worked under Francis Schmidt, and he was the biggest influence on my coaching career.
Sid Gillman
Larry Brown thought Steve Francis was a Larry Brown type of player.
Isaiah Thomas
In Pope Francis’s ‘Amoris Laetitia’ (The Joy of Love), an apostolic exhortation on Catholic family life, he does not make earth-shattering doctrinal changes with regards to divorced Catholics, same-sex married Catholics, or the church’s stance on homosexuality.
Anthea Butler
Francis Ngannou is a fighter that has athletic ability. He’s not an athlete.
Greg Hardy
