I was asked to act when I couldn’t act. I was asked to sing ‘Funny Face’ when I couldn’t sing, and dance with Fred Astaire when I couldn’t dance – and do all kinds of things I wasn’t prepared for. Then I tried like mad to cope with it.

I never starved. And you know, whatever talent I have, I’ve relied on that, versusimage or star. I have just said, ‘Hire me if you want somebody good.’ I tried to be as good as I could be every time out, and that’s kind of bridged the decades.
I’m not a virtuoso on an instrument. You know, I’m not always singing in pitch. I laugh sometimes my way through the shows, but I’m an honest songwriter who’s always tried to bring the audience with me on my journey in hopes that they see their own lives reflected in the work.

My first show was called ‘I Know I’ve Been Changed‘ in ’92. I tried to do this show for years and years. It kept failing over and over and over again. Every time I went out to do the show, nobody showed up. I was like, ‘What is this about?’

I was the guy who was friends with everybody. Yes, I had my core group of friends, but I wasn’t part of a clique that excluded people. I hope they thought I was a nice guy. I tried to be just friendly and outgoing. I was class president. I’m supposed to run my class reunion in 2013.
I tried to find a solution to the problem that I had, tried to find a way to start playing better.

I remember a distinct moment when it was my junior year of college, and the content I was making was changing and not really myself, and I tried to switch back to just putting me out there.

I would say at leaner times in the women’s division, I feel like there were certain girls who tried to keep the torch going for women’s wrestling. If I was one of those women then I feel like I did my job.

There are two rules I’ve always tried to live by: turn left, if you’re supposed to turn right; go through any door that you’re not supposed to enter. It’s the only way to fight your way through to any kind of authentic feeling in a world beset by fakery.
I tried singing. I tried playing a musical instrument. I really wanted to be a musician, but I never could quite pull that off. I liked entertaining, but I was always drawn to some kind of technical work – some kind of honest labor.
I learned to draw everything except glamorous women. No matter how much I tried to make them look sexy, they always ended up looking silly… or like somebody’s mother.
Players would empty their souls to me; you cannot fathom the stories I’ve heard, everything from the good to the bad. I tried whatever I could to work things out.

Stating my views on Islam has brought me to court on charges of ‘group insult’ and incitement to racial hatred.

Of course my goal at Duke was to win the national championship, but we were shorthanded, and lost one of our big guys that was very important to the team. By the end of the season we only played about six guys. But we tried our hardest and did our best and overall had a successful season.
The Iranians have shot down drones. They tried to destroy the Saudi oil fields. They tried to storm our embassy. So, when my Democratic friends say we need appeasement, well appeasement hasn’t worked. And I think that we’ve learned, with respect to Iran, that weakness invites the wolves.
I always did the cooking at home, and we always tried for balance. We’ve been vigilant about how and what our kids eat. For example, my son would just as soon go for the grapes as he would the chips… and the chips are baked.

Sometimes, growing up, I tried to be very Latina; I would change my voice… experiment with my hair a lot, trying to figure out who I was in a primarily white school.
I’d like to be more patient! I just want everything now. I’ve tried to meditate, but it’s really hard for me to stay still. I’d like to try to force myself to do it, because everybody says how wonderful meditation is for you, but I can’t shut my mind up. So patience and learning is the key.
I became comfortable with what I knew would be the process of trying to pick up the pieces of brain that were in the rubble and tried to make some mosaic out of the pieces and that that would be the trajectory.
A lot of my friends tried to talk me out of running.

I certainly tried to make the House a more open and effective place, and I believe I succeeded.
Whenever I’ve tried to ingratiate myself to an existing community, I tend to give too much, to become whatever it is they want me to be. It’s something I do automatically – I’ve learnt to immediately adapt.

When James Bond presses the watch and the car explodes, the writer doesn’t go into the science of it. One should leave it to the leap of faith. I have tried to explain as much as possible, and what I can’t, I have left it to people’s imagination.
A lot of times when I ran, to be honest, I didn’t know where I was in the race. So I always was looking up at the scoreboard to say, ‘Just call my name to see where I am,’ because I tried to have such tunnel vision not to distract myself.
I was gifted at birth with this talent, and I’ve tried to honor it all my life. And I did – through hell and storms and tsunamis and earthquakes. I’ve been through too much not to know that giving back is everything.
I tried every diet, from living on cabbagesoup to fasting to Weight Watchers, and then came the frozenmeals and the shakes. I realized that the more I took care of my body, eating what was good for me, then I felt happy and whole.
I didn’t really like my Sydneyaccent – nobody likes the sound of their own voice – and when I was a little younger tried to change my accent gradually. But I’ve only ever really lived in Sydney and Los Angeles, so I haven’t been influenced by the accents of some far-off land.
Then I decided I couldn’t just crawl in the corner and die, so I started putting pen to paper and wrote some songs. I had no idea what for or who I was going to work with. I tried to find my way and direction.
It has worked great good in other communities in the state where it has been honestly and faithfully tried, and I feel confident it will do the same in Pitt, if we faithfully administer the law, and that it will bring gladness and joy into the homes of the people.
Thomas Jordan Jarvis
However much I have frequented the mystics, deep down I have always sided with the Devil; unable to equal him in power, I have tried to be worthy of him, at least, in insolence, acrimony, arbitrariness and caprice.
This Department of Treasury, run by this administration, using the same tried and true accounting methods that every business in America uses, cast new light on the fiscalseverity that our Nation is facing, what some would call a mess.
I tried Botox one time and was permanentlysurprised for a couple of months. It was not a cute look for me. My feeling is, I have three children who should know what emotion I’m feeling at the exact moment I’m feeling it… that is critical.
It was most exciting when people first came up on the stage and then when they came back for the encore. We wanted to make a show that kept on developing, that was interesting, so we tried to do that with our live shows.
Maybe now, instead of being afraid and saying, ‘Look how hard Terry tried, and he still got cancer,’ instead people will say, ‘Look at the effort he put in, and he died of cancer. We’re really going to have to try hard in order to beat it – harder than we ever have before.’
He tried to convince me. He spoke to me: ‘You have to play for Belgium.’ He came to talk to me, he’s always talking to me. I told him ‘it’s difficult, Lukaku, can’t do it, it’s not the same. Playing for Belgium is something else. Playing for Selecao… It’s Brazil, I feel at home.’
You must accept that you might fail; then, if you do your best and still don’t win, at least you can be satisfied that you’ve tried. If you don’t accept failure as a possibility, you don’t set high goals, you don’t branch out, you don’t try – you don’t take the risk.
I can remember the first time I tried to drive into the garage of the world headquarters of Ford in a Camry. It was almost like they wouldn’t let me in. They said, ‘Why do you want to do that?’ I said, ‘Because we are going to make the best cars in the world, and we need to know everything about the competitor’s car.’
When I look back on my life, I overpaid for my big successes every time. And when I tried to get a bargain, get it a little cheaper or get a better deal on it, I ended up usually either getting it and not happy I got it. Or missing it.
Isn’t that what we come into politics for? To say to people: ‘You can do it, too – there is a chance to serve your community. There is a chance to shape it co-operatively and democratically, without fear or favour.’ And that is what I tried to do.
The leadership lost its nerve. Instead of taking the lead in the reform movement… they pulled the plug on it. They tried and are still trying to return the church to the dry ice of the previous century and a half.
I didn’t want to play a rancher. I didn’t want to have a cowboy hat on; I wanted to get away from that in the things I do. But I read the script and fell in love with it. As hard as I tried to say no, I couldn’t.
I think he Oswald felt he was a failure and for the United States and for President Kennedy and all of us. He knew he was a failure at everything he tried, frustrated, with a very sad life, but he was a Marxist.
There are so many beautiful things that are a part of the world, and I’ve always looked at life that way; I’ve always tried to put on a smile and a brave front, not just for my kids but in my own life and all the difficulties that I’ve gone through.

A month after the scandal broke, I tried to go back to work at the pharmaceutical company after a leave of absence. But because of all the publicity and resulting pressure and stress, I finally resigned.
We didn’t try to raise QBs we just tried to raise kids.
Good food and a warmkitchen are what makes a house a home. I always tried to make my home like my mother’s, because Mom was magnificent at stretching a buck when it came to decorating and food. Like a true Italian, she valued beautification in every area of her life, and I try to do the same.
