Now, everybody always says there’s no ‘I’ in team, but there is an ‘I’ in win, because the individuals make the team what it is, and how they think and what they do is important to the team.

People who are exceptionally intelligent are often lonely because there are few people as intelligent as them. I have two little children, and everyone says: ‘I hope they’re doing well in school.

Political life is like this – elections go back and forth. Representative democracy can only be successful if one sits down and says, ‘That’s it.

Putin does not lie. When he says something, he means it.
When someone says to you, ‘Oh, I don’t take a good picture,’ what they mean is they haven’t come to terms with how they look. They take a fine picture, it’s just that their image of how they think they look is not in touch with the reality.

What I am saying, though, is that they should listen to public opinion, they should listen to the deep wounds and anguish that this is causing to so many good people.
Acting was a lot like football. When you’re a DB and you’re one on one with a receiver, you’re going to dance. It’s go-time in front of 100,000 people and everybody watching on TV.

You know what the Englishman’s idea of compromise is? He says, Some people say there is a God. Some people say there is no God. The truth probably lies somewhere between these two statements.

You know when something feels so good but you’re afraid to feel good about it? So you kinda hold back? Everyone says, Congratulations, you must be so happy. And you say something stupid like, I’m just doing what little I can with what little I have.
You and I are players, God’s our coach, and we’re playing the biggest game of all. We have a loving God that made us. We need to get on His team. It says in His word, there’s only one way to Him and that’s through Jesus Christ.
Since a politician never believes what he says, he is quite surprised to be taken at his word.
The world is moving so fast these days that the man who says it can’t be done is generally interrupted by someone doing it.

When Keats says: ‘Axioms in philosophy are not axioms until they are proved upon our pulses’, what he means is that we don’t necessarily believe what a poem is saying if it comes out and tells us in an absolutely head-on, in-your-face way; we only believe it to be true if we feel it to be true.
My wife says that I become different once I start to work with animals. My movements become different, my mood is different. It involves letting everything fall behind you, becoming intuitive in your dealings with wild creatures in a way that bypasses reason. Sometimes it’s more like a dance than anything else.
Father’s Day is hopefully a time when the culture says, ‘This is our moment to look at who our men and boys are.’
I miss ‘EastEnders.’ I loved it. But I was exhausted when I left. They asked me to go back recently – they’ve asked a few times. I am tempted! But my husband Scott says you have to really think about it. Because, towards the end, I was so exhausted and not sleeping at night. I’m not quite ready for it.
If someone says ‘grunge‘ or ‘punk,’ you know what the sound is, but if you say ‘No Wave,’ it’s kind of mysterious. That was the most interesting part and should have been the most inspirational thing about it… here’s this collective sonic insanity, and none of it sounds anything alike.
A good conversationalist is not one who remembers what was said, but says what someone wants to remember.
If someone who knows what’s going on comes up and says they liked the music, I appreciate that.

I will tell you, I feel very, very bad for Kanye West. He’s not well, and that is the very foundation of everything he says.
I am not a person who says I must talk the same way to every player, I don’t agree with this. Some are more introspective, we must act in a different way, the fuel of every player is different.

The existentialist says at once that man is anguish.
Words have power. Words created this universe… Everything started with the Word. The Bible says, ‘In the beginning was the word.’ In the same way, your words have creative power.

The Church is everywhere represented as one. It is one body, one family, one fold, one kingdom. It is one because pervaded by one Spirit. We are all baptized into one Spirit so as to become, says the apostle, on body.
My favorite thing about being famous… it’s not really as big of a deal as everybody says it is. Being on the road is tough, doing interviews, and all the stuff. It’s still pretty tough.

I worry from the moment I take a job. I worry about how I’m going to do it, if I can do it… Then I walk on set and the director says, ‘Roll’, and all of a sudden, all of it disappears and it’s all happening, and I relax, and I’m doing what I do, and I’m not even thinking about it.
Continuous persecution of widows and orphans is a crime. Even the Bible says there is a specific place in hell for those who oppress widows.
I’ve got high standards when it comes to boys. As my dad says, all girls should! I’m from the South – Tennessee, to be exact – and down there, we’re all about southern hospitality. I know that if I like a guy, he better be nice, and above all, my dad has to approve of him!
For instance, he says I let him play golf, and he says, he lets me be miserable in my job. Now – that doesn’t quite sound right, does it? But nonetheless, I think for the first time in my life, I’m not going to be miserable in my life when I come and work at CNN.

Love and fear. Everything the father of a family says must inspire one or the other.
I don’t know anyone actually who does care what a critic says.
What I will say is that there is no governing body in strongman. There’s no federation. There’s no group of people or person that overlooks the sport, or says that this is a world record, or ‘we’ll count this as a world record.’
Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.
To anybody who says to me, ‘I’m in character,’ I say, ‘You should be in an asylum.’ If you don’t know that you’re pretending, then you should really seek medical help. I don’t have patience for that stuff.
Every government says they love small businesses, but what have they done for them? We should pull down all the barriers.
The moment comes when a character does or says something you hadn’t thought about. At that moment he’s alive and you leave it to him.

There is more hooey spread about the Second Amendment. It says quite clearly that guns are for those who form part of a well-regulated militia, i.e., the armed forces including the National Guard. The reasons for keeping them away from everyone else get clearer by the day.
I consider my music to be Progressive Synth Pop, which says nothing about what it sounds like, but does describe my basic approach.
Religion is run by thought police. ‘Obey. Listen. This is what you do. Don’t ask questions. Go die for your country.’ The spirituality says, ‘Okay, you can die for your country, but know what you’re doing while you’re doing it.’
My accent was horrible. In Mexico, nobody says, ‘You speak English with a good accent.’ You either speak English, or you don’t: As long as you can communicate, no one cares.
As a professional athlete, the small print says there could be a trade at some point in your career. Sometimes expected, sometimes not. You have to be able to handle that.
I have very good relations with Pope Francis. I read constantly what he says and follow his speeches. Pope Francis has come to renew the Catholic Church, and he has new air to renew the spiritual world. Now, Venezuela does not need mediation.
In this quest to seek and find God in all things, there is still an area of uncertainty. There must be. If a person says that he met God with total certainty and is not touched by a margin of uncertainty, then this is not good.
The United States brags about its political system, but the President says one thing during the election, something else when he takes office, something else at midterm and something else when he leaves.
The press doesn’t stop publishing, by the way, in a fascist escalation; it simply watches what it says. That too can be an incremental process, and the pace at which the free press polices itself depends on how journalists are targeted.
Advertising says to people, ‘Here’s what we’ve got. Here’s what it will do for you. Here’s how to get it.’
Saying nothing… sometimes says the most.
Nature says women are human beings, men have made religions to deny it. Nature says women are human beings, men cry out no!
In the story of Thetis and Achilles, it’s clear this isn’t really a safe environment. She’s gone down to the River Styx – the dead are being ferried across in the background. There’s something in this mythology that says that if you want invulnerability, if you want immortality, you pay a price.
I’m a very consistent leader, and people won’t find me different day to day. You won’t have to have the sort of conversation that says, ‘How is she today? Is this a good day to have this conversation?’ You won’t find that situation with me. I treat people with respect.
Censorship is saying: ‘I’m the one who says the last sentence. Whatever you say, the conclusion is mine.’ But the internet is like a tree that is growing. The people will always have the last word – even if someone has a very weak, quiet voice. Such power will collapse because of a whisper.
The smile on your face lets me know that you need me, there’s a truth in your heart that says you’ll never leave me, and the touch of your hand says you’ll catch me whenever I fall.
As Bob Marley says, ‘We must carry on.’ So he has left us a legacy of music to carry on for generations and generations into generations.
I think the American Dream says that anything can happen if you work hard enough at it and are persistent, and have some ability. The sky is the limit to what you can build, and what can happen to you and your family.
I’m working on a film called ‘Bonnie.’ Bonnie means water. It’s in English, and it’s dealing with a future world in a megacity – which is what the U.N. says we’re going to be – but in this megacity, a city that runs out of water.
People know Troy Aikman as a Super Bowl-winning quarterback. That carries tremendous weight. Because he really guards against overexposure, or just saying stuff for effect. When he really says something that’s critical, people notice.
From the first time someone says, Who do you think you are? we learn how to repress.
I have a simple life. I mean, you just give me a drum roll, they announce my name, and I come out and sing. In my job I have a contract that says I’m a singer. So I sing.
I am very clear that when I work with a director what he or she says is the last word.
I’d probably say I’m very strong. If somebody says something horrible, I’m like, ‘Okay, whatever.’
New Zealand was such a weird place in the 1980s. For instance, we used to have this commercial in the late 1970s where this guy drives this car and stops outside a corner store. He goes in to buy something, and when he comes out, his car is gone. He’s like, ‘Huh?’ Then a voice says, ‘Don’t leave your keys in the car.’
As soon as you go into merchandising, everyone nods sagely and says, ‘Ah, now we know why you are doing it.’
The President seems to extend executive privilege way out past the atmosphere. What he says is executive privilege is nothing but executive poppycock.
Nothing’s impossible, because in the word ‘impossible,’ it says, ‘I’m possible.’ Always know that no matter what, you can always do it, and don’t let anybody tell you differently.
The country I live in is never clear about its name. My passport says ‘the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland,’ and citizens of the U.K. may call themselves British, English, Scottish, Welsh or from Northern Ireland.
The only bipartisanship you ever see is when they finally sign a bill and everybody says, ‘Gee, isn’t that wonderful?’
The cynic says, ‘One man can’t do anything.’ I say, ‘Only one man can do anything.’
Say what you want about George W. Bush, but the guy is a man’s man. He means what he says, and he says what he means. Whether you agree with the Texan or not, at least one always knows where they stand with him.
You can draw inspiration from anything. If you’re a good storyteller, you can take a dirty look somebody gives you, or if a guy you used to have flirtations with starts dating a new girl, or somebody you’re casually talking to says something that makes you so mad – you can create an entire scenario around that.
The facts are plain: Religious leaders who preside over marriage ceremonies must and will be guided by what they believe. If they do not wish to celebrate marriages for same-sex couples, that is their right. The Supreme Court says so. And the Charter says so.
You can construct the character of a man and his age not only from what he does and says, but from what he fails to say and do.
I imagine an America that can actually change. That we become a nation that prospers again but without pillaging the resources of nations that make their people hate us. That we become a nation that, as the constitution says in its preamble, its very first paragraph, ‘promotes the general welfare‘ of its people.
Milton took vaudeville, which, if you look up ‘vaudeville’ in the dictionary, right alongside of it, it says ‘Milton Berle’ – and he made it just a tremendous party.
A doctor today would never prescribe the treatments my grandfather used in the Confederate Army, but a minister says pretty much the same thing today that a minister would have said back then.
Once the director calls for action, we act; we stop when he says ‘Cut.’ It is sort of like meditation – unknowingly, you are moving out of yourself, becoming someone else. That is why I consider acting a form of meditation.
If you’re honest about things, people will trust you, even if you’re a bad guy. That says something about where we are and who we are as people.
In a separation it is the one who is not really in love who says the more tender things.
Notice the difference between what happens when a man says to himself, I have failed three times, and what happens when he says, I am a failure.
If someone says that he can think or talk about quantum physics without becoming dizzy, that shows only that he has not understood anything whatever about it.
Somebody with a billion followers can tweet, ‘See my movie,’ and it can still tank. Followers don’t always translate into success because I think people are too savvy. When something takes off, it’s because people are connecting to it – not because someone with a lot of followers says to care about it.
I don’t mind what people say about me as long as it’s an opinion or the truth. If someone says, ‘He’s the worst comedian in the world,’ that’s fine. If someone says, ‘His face makes me want to punch the TV,’ that’s fine. But if they say, ‘Oh, and I know for a fact he hunts squirrels,’ I go: no, no, no… that’s a lie.
Well, I’m in my 60s now. I finally look it, I think. People until I was 60 would always say they thought I looked younger, which I think, without flattering myself, I did, but I think I certainly have, as George Orwell says people do after a certain age, the face they deserve.
I want to steer away from the stereotypes that Latina women are categorized in. I feel like there are so many more opportunities for us. I like going out for those roles that says ‘open ethnicity.’
It’s funny when someone says to you ‘you’re hot’ and all that, because I don’t think of it in that way.
I don’t care what anybody says about me as long as it isn’t true.
When Jesus says you must leave your family to follow Him, he doesn’t necessarily mean physically. He means leave your dependence on them, make an emotional break with them.
I don’t like it when a player says, ‘I like freedom; I want to play for myself.’ Because the player has to understand he is part of a team with 10 other players. If everyone wants to be a jazz musician, it will be chaos. They will not be a team, and nothing will be possible.
The character I play in Star Quality says acting is the be-all and end-all of her life. I’m not like that. I do enjoy working and I give every job my best shot but I never feel, What on Earth am I going to do now?
I go to conventions all the time. I’m not one of those actors who’s public-shy, meaning I don’t mind when someone comes up. It doesn’t happen often in the real world because people don’t recognize me because I was in makeup, but when it does, I don’t usually mind it at all if somebody says something.
College is something I’ve always said I wanted to do, but you’re going there to get a piece of paper that says you can get a job, but if I’m already working steadily and doing good work, it makes you question your priorities. Right now, I’m in my own film college: filming a TV show.
I never buy what someone says is ‘in’ or a ‘must-have.’ I buy what makes me happy.
When somebody says something stupid to me, I usually alleviate it with laughter and humour. I make light of it to educate people on why it’s inappropriate.
Well, my brother says Hello. So, hooray for speech therapy.
When Bush says democracy, I often wonder what he’s referring to.
I think that me as a person, and as a personality, even my name alone, ‘Machine Gun Kelly‘ – it is very loud, and it says a lot.
He who says there is no such thing as an honest man, you may be sure is himself a knave.
Curiously enough, it seems to be only in describing a mode of language which does not mean what it says that one can actually say what one means.
I’ve always believed in a rainbow diet. As many colors and foods as you can eat, the better, because if you focus on one food, there’s bound to be a report that comes out that says, ‘Broccoli actually… ‘ So I mix it up a lot. And I take vitamins, like Biosil, which I take for my hair, skin, and nails.
In a packed programme tonight, we will be talking to an out-of-work contortionist who says he can no longer make ends meet.
In a photo, you just do a click, but in art you have to put in so much energy. This concentration of energy and attention says something that other media cannot say.
President of the United States is you know, our boss, so you know, the President and the First Lady are kinda like the Mom and the Dad of the country. And when your Dad says something you listen.
Everytime a child says ‘I don’t believe in fairies’ there is a a little fairy somewhere that falls down dead.
Society can exist only on the basis that there is some amount of polished lying and that no one says exactly what he thinks.
You just have to do your own thing, no matter what anyone says. It’s your life.
But if you really love to write and you really love to tell stories and you really love to draw, you just have to keep doing it no matter what anybody says.
My dear friend Randeep Hooda says I am more a unionist than an actor. I reminded him I was a star and not just an actor.
Who says soul has only one colour?
We only need so much to survive, but this world we live in tells us we need more stuff to be happy. We’re inundated with our televisions, the Internet and advertising that says in order to be happy you have to have these things. When you say, ‘Gimme, gimme, gimme,’ you will always be in short supply.
I took one thing to heart that I heard from Sidney Poitier in ‘Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.’ And it resonated so much with me. He says: ‘Dad, you always looked at yourself as a black man. I look at myself as a man.’
What I relish most is when a member of my staff, who has worked with passion and patience towards achieving their dream of owning a restaurant, walks up to me and says, ‘Nobu! I have done it!’
My husband calls me ‘catfish.’ He says I’m all mouth and no brains.
What if these events the Bible says will happen, happens in our lifetime?
If you’re sitting across the table from someone, the geometry of the situation says ‘confrontation.’ If you’re walking with somebody, you’re heading in the same direction, and the spatial dance you’re doing is a little more cooperative.
I hate the way they portray us in the media. If you see a black family it says they’re looting, if you see a white family it says they’re looking for food.
I love being an enigma. Every time I’m tempted to respond to someone who tries to put me in a box, politically – you know, someone who gets on the Internet and says, you’re pro-gun, or you’re anti-gun – I stop and say to myself, ‘This is great; this is what I wanted. I wanted to be the guy you can’t figure out.’
As I said before, a big part of my strategy says – and the management team I think is in agreement with this – we don’t have to be out there with a lot of noise all the time. What we need to do is paint a vision for customers, promise them deliverables, and go hit at it.
Who says a center can’t make the pass into the post? Michael Jordan, effectively, was a post player and you saw with the championship teams players able to do multiple things.
I’m not guided by what Human Rights Watch says.
My son always says I like very weird music.
Sometimes I lie awake at night, and ask, ‘Where have I gone wrong?’ Then a voice says to me, ‘This is going to take more than one night.’
Well, I – you know, the scripture says that God works by faith. And you have to have faith. You have to have trust in God so that God can work.
If you were to ask everyone what ‘Hamlet‘ was about, they might say, “It’s about a prince, and he says, ‘To be or not to be.'”
Over time, I have come to believe that ‘brave‘ does not mean what we think it does. It does not mean ‘being afraid and doing it anyway.’ Nope. Brave means listening to the still small voice inside and doing as it says. Regardless of what the rest of the world is saying.
My mother and father come from that post-Depression, middle-of-World-War -I kind of thinking that says, ‘Find a practical job. You know what I mean, Mr. Big Shot? So, you can sing a song …’
Anyone who says businessmen deal in facts, not fiction, has never read old five-year projections.
I’m a real simple person. I believe that the Bible means what it says, and says what it means.
When we have any function, whether it’s language or vision or cognitive functions like memory, we aren’t dealing with a straight line to the brain that says ‘This is what I do.’ The brain builds a network of connections, a network of neurons that have a particular role in that function.
If anyone reads about my story, and says, ‘Look, there’s a guy that struggled with a lot of stuff that I am dealing with now, and he got through it,’ then, yeah, I’d love that. If it helps one person, then that’s great.
Godard is incredibly brilliant, the things he says. Apparently here in France, the most interesting thing when a new film of his is going to come out are his press conferences, because he’s so brilliant.
The book of Revelation says that we no longer need the sun or the moon, for Christ is the light of the world.
You see a child play, and it is so close to seeing an artist paint, for in play a child says things without uttering a word. You can see how he solves his problems. You can also see what’s wrong. Young children, especially, have enormous creativity, and whatever’s in them rises to the surface in free play.
I think the meaning of abortion is what the woman says it is: For a woman who wants a child but can’t have this one, it can be sad; for a woman who doesn’t want a baby, it can feel like a huge relief, like having your whole life given back to you.
No war is over until the enemy says it’s over.
And so, I mean, he declared war right there and then in so many words and Alex says later in the book, nobody in the White House from that point on had any doubt that we were going to bomb the mainland of Asia.
I just don’t sleep enough. But I have never met someone very successful who, at the end of their life, says ‘I wish I slept more.’
A teacher is a person who never says anything once.
When you carry out acts of kindness you get a wonderful feeling inside. It is as though something inside your body responds and says, yes, this is how I ought to feel.
The Bible says, as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.
In radio, they say, nothing happens until the announcer says it happens.
Anyone who says you can’t do anything with short hair is wrong! Every day, my style turns into something new, and there are so many different ways you can wear it.
Nobody cares what any politician in Washington says.
I never listen to ‘Nevermind.’ I haven’t listened to it since we put it out. That says something.
Who says I am not under the special protection of God?
There’s an old maxim that says, ‘Things that work persist,’ which is why there’s still Cobol floating around.
My father was an absolutely wonderful human being. From him I learned to always assume positive intent. Whatever anybody says or does, assume positive intent.
I had a philosophy, which may have been proven right, that directing isn’t as hard as everyone says it is.
The ‘Course in Miracles‘ says one day you will realize that death is not the punishment but the reward. And it says that birth is not the beginning of life but a continuation. And physical death is not the end of life but a continuation.
The only time I’m not Hulk Hogan is when I’m behind closed doors because as soon as I walk out the front door, and somebody says hello to me, I can’t just say ‘hello’ like Terry. When they see me, they see the blond hair, the mustache, and the bald head, they instantly think Hulk Hogan.
Eroticism has its own moral justification because it says that pleasure is enough for me; it is a statement of the individual’s sovereignty.
Every person I have met who has gone vegan says it is the best decision they have ever made.
‘Do What You Gotta Do’ is a positive, inspirational song that says no matter what it is; whether you’re up against challenges or trying to get your dreams and aspirations met, you should do what whatever you have to do shy of killing yourself or someone else.
President Bush says he needs a month off to unwind. Unwind? When the hell does this guy wind?
Melody is the single most important thing to any song, period. I don’t care what anybody says, it trumps everything. Not because that’s my opinion but because I think it’s actually indisputable fact. The human brain retains melody easier than it retains words. It’s that simple.
There is an adage in business that says that you should only compete when you have a competitive advantage. When it comes to cybersecurity, Maryland has a whole host of competitive advantages.
Nature is based on harmony. So it says if we want to survive and become more like nature, then we actually have to understand that it’s cooperation versus competition.
I grew up writing thank-you notes. Real, honest-to-goodness, pen-and-ink, stamped and posted letters. More than simple habit, it’s about what the commitment to expressing your thoughts and feelings in writing says about the character of the writer. About the joy such notes bring to the reader.
It’s supposed to be fun, the man says ‘Play Ball’ not ‘Work Ball’ you know.
Every character I play is straight, which is unique, my agent says, because it’s not really been done before that someone who is completely out is able to play straight roles.
The Bible says that all things work together for the good of those who love the Lord and are called according to his purpose. I believe that. Because I’ve seen it all work.
The other part of outsourcing is this: it simply says where the work can be done outside better than it can be done inside, we should do it.
If you read the Freedom Charter carefully, you will find that – the clause that refers to education, and it says education must be free ‘on merit.’
Now my grandmother, who used to want sons, says that she does not really want boys anymore. She says I’m the lion of the family.
Music is like a conversation. One person says one thing that speaks with a harmonica, with a bass, with a drum. They’re all conversating, and we’re just trying to find a way to make conversation rather than blah, blah, blah. But it’s not really so hard a thing to do if you know the way to approach it.
They say not everyone can be MGR. I agree. MGR is a revolutionary. Not in a 1,000 years can there be another MGR. If anyone says he will be the next MGR, he is insane. But I have the confidence that I can give the government that MGR gave to the people of Tamil Nadu.
Never be possessive. If a female friend lets on that she is going out with another man, be kind and understanding. If she says she would like to go out with the Dallas Cowboys, including the coaching staff, the same rule applies.
The abortion controversy is important for what it says about our stance toward procreation and children altogether.
The Constitution says that government isn’t supposed to be infusing religion into our society, and so I asked to have that upheld.
We are always going to be influenced by America… I watched the word ‘bum‘ go out and ‘butt’ come in. And part of me says, oh that’s a shame, but Aussie boys are still Aussie boys.
She always says, my lord, that facts are like cows. If you look them in the face hard enough they generally run away.
So, I’m lying on the couch and Laura walks in and I say, ‘Free at last,’ and she says ‘You’re free all right, you’re free to do the dishes.’ So I say, ‘You’re talking to the former president, baby,’ and she said, ‘consider this your new domestic policy agenda.’
President Bush says he is concerned about the Iraqi people, but if Iraqi people are dying in numbers, then American policy will be challenged very strongly.
With so many serious issues and responsibilities before the United States Senate, I think New York needs an independent senator who thinks for herself, not someone who just rubberstamps the Obama agenda or checks with Chuck Schumer and says, ‘Me too.’
If a person never contradicts himself, it must be that he says nothing.
Trust that little voice in your head that says ‘Wouldn’t it be interesting if…’; And then do it.
If someone says Wes Anderson is an auteur, I’ll believe it 100 percent. Fine. He’s an auteur, but I’m not.
You have to sort of see the way that the character behaves, and what the character says and does, and claim it in the same way that you claim anything, really.
I don’t write for children. I write and someone says it’s for children.
This is my Bible. I am what it says I am. I have what it says I have. I can do what it says I can do.
You just have to keep on doing what you do. It’s the lesson I get from my husband; he just says, Keep going. Start by starting.
No matter what anybody says, relationships are based on physical attraction. The first time I saw my wife, it was pure animal whatever.
Some story appears in some newspaper that says that somebody said X, Y, and Z, and a customer says, I don’t understand what they’re talking about – we’re running that product, we’ve been using it for five years, what are they talking about?
I can’t find anything in the Constitution that says you prefer the life of the mother, or the convenience of the mother if it’s an abortion by choice, over the potential life of the fetus. Look, I think women, if they’re required to not have abortions, could die and could – so I favor a woman’s right to choose.
When cerebral processes enter into sports, you start screwing up. It’s like the Constitution, which says separate church and state. You have to separate mind and body.
My mom always says, ‘If you don’t believe in something, you’ll lose yourself completely.’
My father always says that heroism is in the Pashtun DNA.
Live in the moment and make the most of every single hour that you’re alive. Like it says on the sign outside the drop zone in front of the school: No Idling.
‘No’ is an entire sentence in itself. No means no, and when somebody says it, you need to stop.
When a woman is talking to you, listen to what she says with her eyes.
Most Christians are still living with an Old Testament view of their heart. Jeremiah 17:9 says, ‘My heart is deceitfully wicked.’ No, it’s not. Not after the work of Christ, because the promise of the new covenant is a new heart.
History says, ‘Don’t hope on this side of the grave.’
I didn’t lose weight for my career or a relationship – I did it to be happy and, as Oprah says, to live my best life.
A man can do what he ought to do; and when he says he cannot, it is because he will not.
For every person that says, ‘I love your work, and my daughter thinks you’re great, and we watch all your movies,’ and is very kind, there are 10 more that are like, ‘Who are you? What’s your name? Are you on ‘House of Cards‘?’
Who is that person that comes around and says, ‘You are OK, you are worthy, you are special?’ That makes all the difference in the world for many of us. Those are the people we appreciate the most.
I was doing all these hand exercises, trying to move things like other kids, catch things like other kids, and change my reflexes, and I guess I just didn’t stop. That’s why if somebody says to me, ‘Can I learn this?’ I will say, ‘Probably, if you can get the psychology right.’
When Rush Limbaugh says I’m not a scientist, I’m charmed – I smirk.
When doubt comes against us, we have to lift up the shield of faith. We do this when we open our mouth and say what God’s Word says, rather than grumbling and complaining about the problem.
I think when anyone says you look like a famous person you fiercely deny it, and then go around hoping other people will say it, too.
The correction of silence is what kills; when you know you have transgressed, and your friend says nothing, and avoids your eye.
The toddler must say no in order to find out who she is. The adolescent says no to assert who she is not.
There is always a type of man who says he loves his fellow men, and expects to make a living at it.
I’ve been reading this little book. It’s called the Russian constitution. And it says that the only source of power in Russia is the people. So I don’t want to hear those who say we’re appealing to the authorities. Who’s the power here?
George Foreman. A miracle. A mystery to myself. Who am I? The mirror says back. The George you was always meant to be. Wasn’t always like that. Used to look in the mirror and cried a river.
Doing Shakespeare in the Park has always been a dream. Everyone else says Hamlet, but I want to play Romeo.
Whoever says Real Madrid are dead is always proved wrong in the long term.
It’s rare to find a film that goes for broke and says, ‘To hell with the consequences.’
There’s no law of nature that says America must remain the most powerful country in the world.
It took me a while to understand the meaning of a franchise: the reasons why you see lawyer, doctor, cop shows. It’s not because anyone in their right mind says, ‘You know, what’s the most fascinating thing in the world?’ It’s because you need something new that happens every week in a frame.
I would love to see a march on Washington that says ‘Save our Social Security‘.
I want to play football until my body says, ‘You can’t run anymore: you’re dead.’
When a philosopher says something that is true then it is trivial. When he says something that is not trivial then it is false.
The final line in the Second Amendment says, ‘The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.’ That means not by the president, not by Congress.
I love writing but hate starting. The page is awfully white, and it says, ‘You may have fooled some of the people some of the time, but those days are over, giftless. I’m not your agent, and I’m not your mommy; I’m a white piece of paper. You wanna dance with me?’ and I really, really don’t. I’ll go peaceable-like.
Mr. Luskin also says that Rove did not knowingly disclose classified information and did not tell any reporters that Valerie Plame worked for the C.I.A.
My mother is very funny. She is from a village; she has a typical village kind of humour. Often she says a lot of things she herself isn’t aware is a punch line.
When you grow up your mother says, ‘Wear rubbers or you’ll catch cold.’ When you become an adult you discover that you have the right not to wear rubbers and to see if you catch cold or not. It’s something like that.
No man means all he says, and yet very few say all they mean, for words are slippery and thought is viscous.
Fascism says what you and I experience as facts or what reporters experience as facts are irrelevant. All that matters are impressions and emotions and myths.
Sometimes… I can’t believe what mum says or does when she’s being really dramatic.
The Bible says that Christians are the salt of the earth and the light of the world. On the job, in the grocery store, even among unsaved friends and family members, God’s people are there to bring seasoning to an unsavory situation.
The function of the killer and watching him – whatever that says about the world in which we live – it was always more about that world than it was about the actual watching.
