"Charles Laughton, who's a great hero of mine, only ever made one film and it happens to be one of the great films ever, which is 'The Night of the Hunter.' It's full of his kind of imagination and creation and how you do things and just in the way he used the studio, I just thought it was a fantastical way of using the studio."
"Imagination is more important than knowledge."Brian Cox on Albert Einstein
"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities."Brian Cox on Dr. Seuss
"Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions."Brian Cox on Albert Einstein
"I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation and is but a reflection of human frailty."Brian Cox on Albert Einstein
"Can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can?"Brian Cox on Sun Tzu
"Feudal societies don't create great cinema we have great theatre. The egalitarian societies create great cinema. The Americans, the French. Because equality is sort of what the cinema deals with. It deals with stories which don't fall into 'Everybody in their place and who's who,' and all that. But the theatre's full of that."
