I’ve worked with a lot of gay and lesbian organizations. I sit on the board of the Empire State Pride Agenda. I’ve also done a lot of work for Broadway Care/Equity Fights AIDS.

Everything happens to me. I’ve never had a streak of luck in my life.
I try not to put anything political on the forefront of what I’m trying to do creatively. At the same time, I do think it’s wonderful when I hear people say that it’s inspirational that I’m an Indian woman on camera. My life is very diverse, and my friends are a diverse group of people.

If Alibaba cannot become a Microsoft or Wal-Mart, I will regret it for the rest of my life.
My interest is in the future because I am going to spend the rest of my life there.
I’m too tall. I am 6ft 7in, so I’ve been most people’s height at some point in my life, and 6ft 4in is the best. You’re tall, but you don’t have to bend when you go through a door.
One of the biggest obstacles I’ve overcome in my life was thinking I didn’t deserve to be successful. Artistically I’m not as much of a heavyweight as someone like Paul Simon or Joni Mitchell, because I’m not a creator of original music, and I worried about that for years.

To me, women have always been the sturdiest people in my life and have been incredible sources of energy.
My life has been such a blur since I was 18, 19 years old. I haven’t even had time to contemplate my own life. By forcing yourself to write your life story you learn a great deal about yourself.
I don’t care if someone wants to say something derogatory or spiteful anymore. As I’ve grown older I’ve become wiser to the fact that vindictive people take pride in trying to make other people feel bad. I enjoy my life. If someone doesn’t like what I do, that’s up to them, I really don’t care.
I know when you think about the South, you think about fried foods, but we eat a tremendous amount of vegetables. I have my own garden, so vegetables have always been a big part of my life. I love broccoli. I love fresh beets. It’s not all about the fried chicken and the biscuits.
Everything in my life I owe to God, my family, the Naval Academy, and the Marine Corps.

I try to live my life where I end up at a point where I have no regrets. So I try to choose the road that I have the most passion on because then you can never really blame yourself for making the wrong choices. You can always say you’re following your passion.
So if you stay ready, you ain’t gotta get ready, and that is how I run my life.
I have in sincerity pledged myself to your service, as so many of you are pledged to mine. Throughout all my life and with all my heart I shall strive to be worthy of your trust.
I, for one, am profoundly grateful to feel the hand of God at work in my life. But at the beginning and end of the day, when my default setting is to show kindness and love to others, I never regret it. And to me, that is what faith is all about.
My school days were the happiest days of my life; which should give you some indication of the misery I’ve endured over the past twenty-five years.
I am blessed to have so many great things in my life – family, friends and God. All will be in my thoughts daily.

If my life was a movie, no one would believe it.
I have lived a long life, and I am proud that I spend the whole of my life in the service of my people. I am only proud of this and nothing else. I shall continue to serve until my last breath, and when I die, I can say, that every drop of my blood will invigorate India and strengthen it.

No matter how tough my life was, I was always looking up at the sky and wishing for good things.
Money is often a matter of chance or good fortune and is not the mark of a successful life. It is not the thing that brings a throb of pleasure or a thrill into my life. And I would not pose as a successful man if that were to be the measure.
Whoever wants to be caught up in my life, first of all, you should be living yours because I’m damn sure not worried about your life.
Every musician, their goal in life is to play music that people love, and I’ve accomplished my goal. I was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and left that chapter of my life and those people in the past. Good and bad, I’ve loved and am thankful for that chapter.
I’m not searching for the meaning of life, but I’m looking for a meaning within my life.

There are a lot of things going on with my life right now that don’t just have to do with career. So I have a hard time making decisions about work. That’s really a luxury problem.
I have spent a great deal of my life being part of minorities. Some of the people I admire the most in the world have had the courage to defend, against wind and tide, minority viewpoints in those frightening times when any disagreement with universal conformity is identified as treason.
I have lived pain, and my life can tell: I only deepen the wound of the world when I neglect to give thanks the heavy perfume of wild roses in early July and the song of crickets on summer humid nights and the rivers that run and the stars that rise and the rain that falls and all the good things that a good God gives.
