With trans people, I just think you can’t help the way you are born, though. You know, it’s DNA, it’s genetics. I’m just glad people can do things about their own happiness. I think this thought process that they’re trying to wipe out women is a bit ridiculous – it’s a minority of people.
We in the Negro leagues felt like we were contributing something to baseball, too, when we were playing. We played with a round ball, and we played with a round bat.

Pain makes man think. Thought makes man wise. Wisdom makes life endurable.
Frankly I’ve never really subscribed to these adjectives tagging me as an ‘icon‘, ‘superstar‘, etc. I’ve always thought of myself as an actor doing his job to the best of his ability.

I been living down in Atlanta, but everyone back home has been in my thoughts, especially those doing something for the community and all the neighborhood heroes.

If a race has no history, if it has no worthwhile tradition, it becomes a negligible factor in the thought of the world, and it stands in danger of being exterminated.
Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives.
By playing games you can artificially speed up your learning curve to develop the right kind of thought processes.
You gotta be able to take criticism if you want to be anything close to great. Even if it’s not true. You use that as an advantage for yourself. You can use that negative energy and turn that into an energy that drives you to be something more than you thought you could be. That’s one thing I did.
All of my misfortunes come from having thought too well of my fellows.
I’ve never thought about songwriting as a weapon. I’ve only thought about it as a way to help me get through love and loss and sadness and loneliness and growing up.

A good boss makes his men realize they have more ability than they think they have so that they consistently do better work than they thought they could.

Intimacy is a wonderful thing. It’s frustrating that growing up I thought it was wrong. It isn’t. Exploring your sexuality is important when you’re growing up.
It’s my first record since my son is old enough to understand and I can’t even show it to him. Yes, it’s affected me, probably in the opposite of how anyone would have thought.
I had been very impressed with the voiceover of ‘Apocalypse Now,’ with Martin Sheen’s voice. That was a great voiceover; it really internalized the Martin Sheen character, who was essentially fairly low key and didn’t say a lot during the whole movie.

A couple years ago I was going to back off and actually thought about retiring, but it keeps calling me back, and I’m going to keep going back as long as it calls me.

The man who can smile when things go wrong has thought of someone else he can blame it on.

I got the idea for ‘Throne of Glass’ when I was sixteen. Music always inspires my books, and when I was listening to the ‘Cinderella‘ soundtrack, I thought, ‘What if Cinderella was actually an assassin who liked getting dressed up all pretty and going to the ball, but then she wouldn’t mind kicking butt?’
When I got sober, I thought giving up was saying goodbye to all the fun and all the sparkle, and it turned out to be just the opposite. That’s when the sparkle started for me.

I saw this new thing called television, and I saw people throwing pies in each other’s faces, and I thought, ‘This could be a wonderful tool for education!
