When things go wrong or dont turn out the way you pictured them in your head, you just have to go with the best intentions defense. I have a lot of good intentions.
You think the world owes you something, and it just doesn't work that way.
I think fashion can always date, but I think if a woman has elegance, she doesnt date.

I believe for the first time in history, entrepreneurship is now a viable career.
You know, there are ways not to perform oral sex if you didn't want to do it.
You can have results or excuses. Not both.
When people go within and connect with themselves, they realize they are connected to the universe and they are connected to all living things.
I loved to get all dusty and ride horses and plant potatoes and cotton.
Bangalore has become a centre for healthcare.
To win in the game of life, we all need both a healthy mind and body. By involving children in the fun and dynamic fitness programs offered by Len Saunders, we help them maximize not only their physical potential, but more importantly their intellectual potential. You don't need to be an outstanding athlete to be physically fit - you just need to participate. This book is an outstanding reference for parents and educators alike who want to promote better health for our children.
That foolishness is what people call pride. That pride that you'd die to protect... why can't I have it? Did you pity me? Up until now, I was just powerless and pitiful to you. So you thought I'd take any helping hand offered to me. Right?
The whole world is in revolt. Soon there will be only five Kings left--the King of England, the King of Spades, The King of Clubs, the King of Hearts, and the King of Diamonds.
Maybe we need to re-engage our smart, energetic youth around the world to be farmers and find fresh, green technologies that will feed the world more fresh greens.
Child abuse casts a shadow the length of a lifetime.
Baking may be regarded as a science, but it's the chemistry between the ingredients and the cook that gives desserts life. Baking is done out of love, to share with family and friends, to see them smile.
Back when the Bible was written, then edited, then rewritten, then rewritten, then re-edited, then translated from dead languages, then re-translated, then edited, then rewritten, then given to kings for them to take their favorite parts, then rewritten, then re-rewritten, then translated again, then given to the pope for him to approve, then rewritten, then edited again, the re-re-re-re-rewritten again...all based on stories that were told orally 30 to 90 years AFTER they happened.. to people who didnt know how to write... so...
I’ve grown a lot as a player. I learned a lot, and I just have to keep building on that.
One can travel this world and see nothing. To achieve understanding it is necessary not to see many things, but to look hard at what you do see.
[D]emocracy will soon degenerate into an anarchy, such an anarchy that every man will do what is right in his own eyes and no man's life or property or reputation or liberty will be secure, and every one of these will soon mould itself into a system of subordination of all the moral virtues and intellectual abilities, all the powers of wealth, beauty, wit and science, to the wanton pleasures, the capricious will, and the execrable cruelty of one or a very few.
One way in which all of us can help to combat the current wave of public indecency which threatens to undermine Western civilization is to concentrate upon and increase the solidarity of the family. This solidarity begins with a child at the mother's breast.
I lay naked in furs a lot. I think I'm naked more than I talk.
Screenwriting involves an often un-personal process. Co-writers, directors, producers, everyone has a say in what you put on a page, and stories are constantly changing according to budget, actors, and commercial needs. Films are a collaborative process and are also inherently narrative and structured, so you are always working within very tight parameters. Short fiction unleashes a more intimate voice and a passion for language. I believe short narratives can have the same amount of danger and drama as any action film.
Blues, rock and hip hop are more about a lifestyle and culture than notes on a page.
It's important me as a musician and also as an occasional show goer to feel the presence of a band on stage, to hear a PA reverberating and slapping off the walls, the push and pull of an audience, the blood, sweat, and heat. It's a primal thing in a way.
Feel free to cover Amazon any way you want. Feel free to cover Jeff Bezos any way you want.
The object of my researches is the brain. The cranium is only a faithful cast of the external surface of the brain, and is consequently but a minor part of the principal object.
I just want to create amazing music that speaks and defines who I am. I want it to be based on my life and/or what I am going through at that specific time.
I think you just have to turn it around and say we are at this absolute historical moment. No generation has ever been as powerful as us. We have the future of our species in our hands. We could be the generation that people look back on and say, 'They bloody did it!', not 'They didn't bother.'
Perhaps everything lies in knowing what words to speak, what actions to perform, and in what order and rhythm; or else someone's gaze, answer, gesture is enough; it is enough for someone to do something for the sheer pleasure of doing it, and for his pleasure to become the pleasure of others: at that moment, all spaces change, all heights, distances; the city is transfigured, becomes crystalline, transparent as a dragonfly.
Heartbreak can definitely give you a deeper sensibility for writing songs. I drew on a lot of heartbreak when I was writing my first album, I didn't mean to but I just did.
Know when and how to get out of the way.
Before all, you need to know who you are, what you believe in, and what you stand for. Be how you want to be received.
I did 'The Grey,' and it was very intense and emotional because we're in the wilderness, and it was always 30 degrees. You kind of lose your sense of reality in the fact that you're filming a movie.
... good teachers, like Tolstoy's happy families, are alike everywhere.
Dominique Strauss-Kahn has always had a reputation as a man who cares for women, and even a libertine . . . There is a vast difference between [that] reputation . . . and the charge which he is the object, which is a serious, very serious crime or sex crime. This is something very different.
There are some places which, seen for the first time, yet seem to strike a chord of recollection. "I have been here before," we think to ourselves, "and this is one of my true homes." It is no mystery for those philosophers who hold that all which we shall see, with all which we have seen and are seeing, exists already in an eternal now; that all those places are home to us which in the pattern of our life are twisting, in past, present and future, tendrils of remembrance round our heart-strings.
I grew up in that world of power and politics in Washington, but when you grow up around it, you are completely unfazed by it.
Every work of art is about everything.
