Software constraints are only confining if you use them for what they’re intended to be used for.

As a screenwriter, you are so used to things going in directions that you wouldn’t have taken, so to be able to say, ‘This is how I intended it, this is how I want to shoot it, and these are the decisions that I’ll live by,’ I think directing is a logical conclusion of mine.

Babe and I are both great television fans, and we’ve been planning to do something on TV. But we certainly never intended to start out on an unrehearsed network show!

Stan Laurel
Film fixes a precise visual image in the viewer‘s head. In fiction, you just hope you’re precise enough to convey the intended effect.

The music you play, it’s never intended for other people, so it’s quite amazing dealing with stuff now, because obviously any tracks I write, a lot of folks are going to hear. It definitely plays on my mind quite a lot.

So many people view the war on drugs as a failure, as something that was perhaps intended and carried out with good intentions but very badly executed.

When steam first began to pump and wheels go round at so many revolutions per minute, what are called business habits were intended to make the life of man run in harmony with the steam engine, and his movement rival the train in punctuality.

Without any intended hubris, I’ve lead a pretty exciting life. What I’ve tried to do in Mission Compromised is draw on those experiences to create a sense of excitement and realism within the story.

I don’t think we use television the way we should or the way the inventors intended.

When you think about Twitter and you think what a dumb stupid throwaway technology, and then you have the Iranian elections and it actually saves the day – you can’t prejudge technologies now because they have effects you may not have intended.

Politics is when you say you are going to do one thing while intending to do another. Then you do neither what you said nor what you intended.

The reason I took on directing a film myself was because, no matter how skilful a director was or how much I liked the film, there’d always be beats where I’d go, ‘Oh… well, that’s skilful, in a way, but it doesn’t get the flavour I’d intended in the script.’

I had intended to have gone into Africa incognito. But the fact that a white man, even an American, was about to enter Africa was soon known all over Zanzibar.

Henry Morton Stanley
Every human being is intended to have a character of his own; to be what no others are, and to do what no other can do.

The audience too should be respected by being presented with a film as they remember it, and for those who have not seen it, as it was intended to be seen. Anything less is a degradation of the film and its audience.

George Stevens
Long Violent History’ is a collection of instrumental pieces intended to create a sonic soundscape for the listener to set the tone to reflect on the last track, which is my own observational piece on the times we are in.

I never intended for the Sex Pistols to be immeasurably successful.

I think all art is, by nature, intended to motivate society for change, and the only reason change doesn’t happen is because within the target population, courage is lacking.

I majored in political communications, so I intended to be a diplomat.

FDR created today’s 30 percent coalition. Obama wants to finish the job by turning it into a permanent ruling majority. There’s nothing new about the Obama Narrative. It is the FDR Narrative on steroids. It is intended to lead to greater statism and political gain.

Arthur C Brooks
At one point I intended to write precursor and sequel novels, about the establishment of the Web and its next evolution, but I am very unlikely to now; they would take place in a different universe.
