Famous Tom Holland Quotes

Fame is a beast that you can’t control or be prepared for.  Tom Holland

A myth, though, is not a lie. At its most profound as Tolkien, that devout Catholic, always argued a myth can be true. To be a Christian is to believe that God became man and suffered a death as terrible as any mortal has ever suffered. This is why the cross, that ancient implement of torture, remains what it has always been the fitting symbol of the Christian revolution. It is the audacity of it  the audacity of finding in a twisted and defeated corpse the glory of the creator of the universe that serves to explain, more surely than anything else, the sheer strangeness of Christianity, and of the civilization to which it gave birth. Today, the power of this strangeness remains as alive as it has ever been. It is manifest in the great surge of conversions that has swept Africa and Asia over the past century; in the conviction of millions upon millions that the breath of the Spirit, like a living fire, still blows upon the world; and, in Europe and North America, in the assumptions of many more millions who would never think to describe themselves as Christian. All are heirs to the same revolution a revolution that has, at its molten heart, the image of a god dead on a cross. Tom Holland

Colombia is so different from what I know, and every aspect of the country is different from England, and I loved it. I loved the culture and the food, and the coffee was amazing. The place that we were was stunning, and it really was quite an amazing experience to film out there. Tom Holland

It was an article of faith to the Romans that they were the most morally upright people in the world. How else was the size of their empire to be explained? Yet they also knew that the Republic’s greatness carried its own risks. To abuse it would be to court divine anger. Hence the Roman’s concern to refute all charges of bullying, and to insist they had won their empire purely in self defense. Tom Holland

I loved doing ballet. I trained for two years. Tom Holland

The supreme achievement of the Jewish and Christian scholars of the age was to craft a history of their respective faiths that cast themselves as its rightful and inevitable culmination, and left anything that might have served to contradict such an impression out of the story altogether. Tom Holland

I went to an ordinary primary school, and then I started performing in a show called Billy Elliot on the West End, and that was sort of my drama school. Tom Holland

Whatever else it may be, the Qur’an is no work of history. Startlingly, were it not for all the commentaries elucidating its mysteries, all the biographies of the Prophet, and all the sprawling collections of hadiths none of which, in the form we have them, pre dates the beginning of the third century after the hijra  we would have only the barest reason to associate it with a man named. Tom Holland

Bullies now aren’t just jocks. They’re rich kids in nice cars with fancy clothes. Tom Holland

Gain cannot be made without loss to someone else. Tom Holland

Peter Parker can’t dance. He can flip and climb up walls and do backflips, but he definitely can’t dance. Tom Holland

Once the world of ideas has been transformed, reality cannot hold out for long. Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel. Tom Holland

I have a photographic memory. Tom Holland

Honour, in the Republic, had never been a goal in itself, only a means to an infinite end. And what was true of her citizens, naturally, was also true of Rome herself. For the generation that had lived through the civil wars, this was the consolation history gave them. Out of calamity could come greatness. Out of dispossession could come the renewal of a civilised order. Tom Holland

Peter Parker’s storyline hits every key point of growing up. Tom Holland

Venerable the scorn of the Jews for the Ishmaelites may have been; but it was nothing like so savage as their loathing for the Romans. Tom Holland

Adrenaline has always been my thing. Tom Holland

A history of Islam’s origins cannot be written without reference to the origins of Judaism and Christianity and a history of the origins of Judaism and Christianity cannot be written without reference to the world that incubated them both. The vision of God to which both rabbis and bishops subscribed, and which Muhammad’s followers inherited, did not emerge out of nowhere. The monotheisms that would end up established as state religions from the Atlantic to central Asia had ancient, and possibly unexpected, roots. To trace them is to cast a searchlight across the entire civilisation of late antiquity. Tom Holland

I feel like if you put something out into the universe, then you increase your chances of it happening. Tom Holland

Achievement was worthy of praise and honor, but excessive achievement was pernicious and a threat to the state. However great a citizen might become, however great he might wish to become, the truest greatness of all still belonged to the Roman Republic itself. Tom Holland

I was an ordinary student at school and, at the same time, an actor. But I was not the popular kid, which helped me to play Peter Parker better. Tom Holland

When scholars in Europe sought to justify the Spanish conquest of the New World, they reached not for the Church Fathers, but for Aristotle. As the Philosopher says, it is clear that some men are slaves by nature and others free by nature. 17 Even in the Indies, though, there were Spaniards who worried whether this was truly so. Tell me, a Dominican demanded of his fellow settlers, eight years before Cortés took the road to Tenochtitlan, by what right or justice do you keep these Indians in such a cruel and horrible servitude? On what authority have you waged a detestable war against these people, who dwelt quietly and peacefully in their own land? 18 Most of the friar’s congregation, too angered to reflect on his questions, contented themselves with issuing voluble complaints to the local governor, and agitating for his removal; but there were some colonists who did find their consciences pricked. Increasingly, adventurers in the New World had to reckon with condemnation of their exploits as cruelty, oppression, greed. Tom Holland

I go to The Brit School, which is where Adele, Amy Winehouse, and Jessie J went. Tom Holland

While he may forget that he is Caesar, I never forget that I am Caesar’s daughter. Tom Holland

Peter Parker is probably the most relatable superhero maybe ever  because he goes through something that basically everyone has to go through. Whether it’s puberty or talking to girls or doing homework, he does it in such a human way. That’s why he’s such a beloved character because so many people can relate to him. Tom Holland

Never before had Jewish morality and Greek philosophy been fused to such momentous effect. That the law of the God of Israel might be read inscribed on the human heart, written there by his Spirit, was a notion that drew alike on the teachings of Pharisees and Stoics and yet equally was foreign to them both. Tom Holland

I feel like I’ve been playing Spider Man my whole life. He’s a character I’ve been pretending to be in my bedroom since I was a kid so I’ve been preparing for this forever, I think. Tom Holland

History, unlike faith, cannot be built upon foundations of sand. Tom Holland

Zendaya is the one. At serving looks, she is the one to go to for tips. Tom Holland

The Roman character had a strong streak of snobbery effectively, citizens preferred to vote for families with strong brand recognition, electing son after father after grandfather to the great magistracies of state, indulging the nobility’s dynastic pretensions with a numbing regularity. Tom Holland

Marvel actually sent me to a school in the Bronx where I had a fake name, and I put on an accent, and I went for, like, three days. I basically had to go to this science school and blend in with all the kids, and some of the teachers didn’t even know. Tom Holland

The greater the sense of awe with which a text was regarded, the more complete might be the amnesia as to the original circumstances of its composition. Tom Holland

Spider Man was the best time of my life. I was there with my best friend. We shot in Atlanta. We shot every day and just had an absolute blast. Avengers was crazy because you’re on set every day with actors I never dreamed I would work with. I’m as much a fan as anyone else. Tom Holland

Harmony enables small things to flourish while the lack of it destroys the great. Tom Holland

If I can bring happiness to people all around the world, then I will try my best to do so. Tom Holland

In a city famed for its wealth, Paul proclaimed that it was the low and despised in the world, mere nothings,34 who ranked first. Among a people who had always celebrated the agon, the contest to be the best, he announced that God had chosen the foolish to shame the wise, and the weak to shame the strong. In a world that took for granted the hierarchy of human chattels and their owners, he insisted that the distinctions between slave and free, now that Christ himself had suffered the death of a slave, were of no more account than those between Greek and Jew. Tom Holland

The ulama, by tightly controlling what went into the history books, were able to propagate an understanding of their own dazzlingly rich and complex civilization that attributed almost every single thing of value within it to the Prophet, and the Prophet alone. There was no question of acknowledging the momentous roles played in the forging of Islam by countless others  be they autocrats such as Abd Al Malik or scholars such as themselves. Tom Holland

There’s too much we don’t know about the ocean to make me feel comfortable around it. Tom Holland

Time erodes both steel and stone. So Ovid had written in the months before his death. Tom Holland

I’m never quite cool if you know what I mean. I’m basically the worst, best superhero. Tom Holland

The concept of natural law had no place in Torah. Yet Paul as he struggled to define the law that he believed, in the wake of the crucifixion and the resurrection, to be written on the heart of all who acknowledged Christ as Lord did not hesitate to adapt the teachings of the Greeks. The word he used for it syneidesis clearly signalled which philosophers in particular he had in mind. Paul, at the heart of his gospel, was enshrining the Stoic concept of conscience. Tom Holland

It’s very easy to relate to a kid who is having trouble in high school less so to relate to a billionaire whose Lamborghini broke down. Tom Holland

Only centuries after the death of Jesus by which time, astonishingly, even the Caesars had been brought to acknowledge him as Christ did his execution at last start to emerge as an acceptable theme for artists. Tom Holland
