I’m an American songbook guy, though I’ve got eclectic tastes. I really love the American songbook.

It took me a lot of years to understand everything that it took to be at a high level. Not only on the court and in the weight room, but also making sure that I’m taking care of my body, that I’m recovering. It’s a year-round process. It’s not just in-season and then offseason and it’s over.
I don’t believe in pitfalls. I believe in taking risks and not doing the same thing twice.

I started taking my fiance, Justin, to some red carpet events I would go to, and a bowtie is often something that was required. We came across a lot of stylish bowties.

Everything I do, writing, touring, travelling, it all comes from the punk and hardcore attitude, from that expression – from being open to try things but relying on yourself, taking what you have into the battle and making of it what you will, hoping you can figure it out as you go.

A lot of people think international relations is like a game of chess. But it’s not a game of chess, where people sit quietly, thinking out their strategy, taking their time between moves. It’s more like a game of billiards, with a bunch of balls clustered together.

In terms of weapons, the best disarmament tool so far is nuclear energy. We have been taking down the Russian warheads, turning it into electricity. 10 percent of American electricity comes from decommissioned warheads.

We are always in a state of flux, and taking risks is important.

It’s so exhausting in the pocket taking shots when you know I can go. I don’t want to take that shot and maybe make a bigger play. To dedicate and discipline your mind that ‘I have to find a way, that’s the only way I can learn… ‘ That’s the challenge.
Government is taking 40 percent of the GDP. And that’s at the state, local and federal level. President Obama has taken government spending at the federal level from 20 percent to 25 percent.

A battery by definition is a collection of cells. So the cell is a little can of chemicals. And the challenge is taking a very high-energy cell, and a large number of them, and combining them safely into a large battery.

As a kid, I was just writing scripts and taking whatever film classes I could in college.

She could have become anything, but this was the 1930s, and she was forced into an arranged marriage.
A lot of women these days, a lot of young women don’t want to call themselves feminists. You have this cheap, hideous ‘girl power‘ sort of fad, which I think is pretty benign at best, but at worst, I think it’s a way of taking the politics out of feminism and making it some kind of fashion.

Ultimately, if you can say that I’m a bad owner and we’re winning championships, I can live with that.

So thoroughly and sincerely are we compelled to live, reverencing our life, and denying the possibility of change.

Kindle Singles is publishing on skates. It prints like lightning; our book meets readers in hours.

Unfortunately, the food industry has not yet faced this situation and begun taking measures to avoid exploiting our weakness for not knowing when we have had enough.

The objects that are of moderate energy, like our sun or most of the stars that we see in the night sky with the naked eye, are objects in which relatively moderate energy processes are taking place.
That’s the most beautiful thing that I like about boxing: you can take a punch. The biggest thing about taking a punch is your ego reacts and there’s no better spiritual lesson than trying to not pay attention to your ego’s reaction. That’s what takes people out of the fight half the time.

I guess taking a stand is valid for a commentator. But that’s not what I am.
‘Feminist comedy,’ practically an oxymoron, had a couple of good years after WWII.

If I took the 40 years of my dad talking to me about war and battles and taking me to battlefields and distilled it down into one question, it would probably be the idea of the necessary or unnecessary war.

I am not getting any younger and am taking a new approach to life.
Cancer has taught me a lot of things. Maybe it is the best thing that has happened to me. I can’t say right now, but maybe some years down the line, I would realise. When I was taking chemotherapy, there were a lot of elderly patients, and that would inspire me. I thought, ‘If they can be cured, why can’t I be?’
So many people condemn me for risk taking, but I find it sort of hypocritical because everybody takes risks. Even the absence of activity could be viewed as a risk. If you sit on the sofa for your entire life, you’re running a higher risk of getting heart disease and cancer.
I don’t believe in the term ‘guilty pleasure,’ because it implies I should feel ashamed for liking something. A real guilty pleasure would be, I don’t know, taking gratification in some stranger‘s ghastly death or something – which I guess I do enjoy, because I read a ton of true crime.

The very first big photo shoot I ever did was with Bruce Weber. I couldn’t believe this guy was taking my picture, so when he told me to get in the bathtub, I just did. It’s only now, looking back, that I realise, you don’t have to do everything people tell you.
Better educating our college students on the risks of high student debt and helping them to find alternatives to taking out student loans would help make the difference to their financial future.

When going out on a date, I think there are certain old-fashioned manners that I still enjoy. I don’t mean that as an anti-feminist comment. I just mean it as a pro-women comment. There must be a place for us to exist and our differences to exist without one taking away from the other.
Of course I’m schooled in the old school method: taking what I think the director wants, then reworking it through my own brain and heart.
