In this post, you will find great Mine Quotes from famous people, such as Richard Brautigan, Emily Watson, John Hersey, James Longstreet, Nikola Tesla. You can learn and implement many lessons from these quotes.
People try to put ownership on things: ‘That’s mine, that’s my joke.’ No such thing. Like if you tripped or stumbled and people go, ‘Oh, that’s CharlieChaplin.’ You know what I mean? You can’t own a joke. You can be the guy that tells it the best, but you can’t own a joke. Nowhere can you own a laugh.
I’m a snowflake. And so are you. Your children are snowflakes. And so are mine. And those who protest the loudest about not being snowflakes? I can see your six-fold ice crystals from here! Because every person, empirically, is unique.
Whatever womanmay cast her lot with mine, should any ever do so, it is my intention to do all in my power to make her happy and contented; and there is nothing I can imagine that would make me more unhappy than to fail in the effort.
I don’t understand executives that pitwomenagainst each other, the fact that they brought in ‘Body of Proof,’ Dana Delaney is a friend of mine, and the two of us were just rolling our eyes, it’s like, of course, you finally have two great femaleleads and you’re going to put us on against each other.
Why would we want to keep a tax cut that’s failed? Why would we not want to go back to the Clinton tax code? And why would we not want to help every family more with a health-care plan like mine? Let’s help average people. Let’s be Democrats.
I’ve always thought that whether I’m writing or not, I’ve gotta pick the best songs, whether or not they’re mine. I’m not gonna sing them just because I wrote them. I’ve gotta find the best songs to make the best record I can.
When I go back and read my journals or fiction, I am always surprised. I may not remember having those thoughts, but they still exist and I know they are mine, and it’s all part of making sense of who I am.
For the most part, works of mine are untitled. There was a briefperiod where I had poetictitles for works, and they’re embarrassing now. I think, for the most part, it’s not something that I have talent for.
I got into gambling when I was playing a casino. I was a hermit in those days. I would go onstage, go to my room, or if we had to travel, I’d get in a car or a plane, whatever. But I didn’t do anything. One day, this friend of mine said, ‘Do you want to play some blackjack?’
Beto’s copy of the Bill of Rights goes from one to three. Mine includes the Second Amendment. But there are a whole host of people here in Washington… they would be happy to confiscate America’s guns. And if you don’t believe that, then you probably also still believe in Bigfoot.
I don’t really get to see a lot of other comedians, because I work with the same people all the time. The guy I really like is Nick DiPaulo. I love Nick DiPaulo, but again, he’s a buddy of mine. But I liked him for a long time. I liked him before he was a buddy of mine.
I’ve heard that I’ve gotten a lightercomplexion, as if I’ve bleached my skin. I think that is so stupid and ludicrous. For those who want to bleach their skin, that’s fine. I just didn’t bleach mine. I’m a black woman. I don’t want to be anything but a black woman.
I don’t ever want it to be about me. A friend of mine told me, ‘The difference betweenfame and notoriety is fame is when people know you, and notoriety is when people know your work.’ The first one is not respectable, but the second one is, because that leaves a legacy.
It is not important for me as a writer that you leave a piece of writing of mine with either an agreement or even a resonance with what I have said. What is important is that you leave with the resonance of what you have felt and what you thought in reaction to that.
My daughter’s name is Neesyn Dacey but everyone calls her Dacey. Her mom chose Neesyn and I chose Dacey after she was born. The mother is a good friend of mine who I was seeing a while ago. We are no longer together.
I was always really inspired by watching the older girls competing, just seeing other Olympians do great things, and I just really wanted to be a part of that whole experience. And to be able to represent USA was always a goal of mine.
It had always been a dream of mine to come to New York to work. Coming to New York and looking for work is one thing, but coming to New York and already having a job and feeling like you are already part of the city has been an amazing experience for me.
Your subconscious mind is trying to help you all the time. That’s why I keep a journal – not for chatter but for mostly the images that flow into the mind or little ideas. I keep a running journal, and I have all of my life, so it’s like your gold mine when you start writing.
Every time I listen back to solos of mine I’ll hear something I like and then another phrase that I can’t stand. You have to live with what you play. And the recordingmediumputs that on us. When I play live gigs I don’t think so much like that.
I’ll watch a Pixarmovie over and over and over again. I’ll be with friends of mine who have kids, that want to watch ‘Finding Nemo,’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah, okay, let’s watch ‘Nemo’ again, for the seven billionth time!,’ because they’re amazing movies.
As an international sportsman, I am very lucky to be supported by people all over the world, many of who treat me as one of their own, no matter what their nationality, or indeed mine. This is the way sport should be.
All lives have triumphs and tragedies, laughter and tears, and mine has been no different. What really matters is whether, after all of that, you remain strong and a comfort to your loved ones. I have tried to meet that test.
So there was something of a learning curve with doing your own thing and people seeing you outside of the band. I mean, people have never really heard my voice before – or heard a whole record of mine before. So it was a completely new experience.
Chris was a friend of mine, I loved him. I didn’t see him for 18 months before he died, but I’d met him several times after the accident. What was remarkable was his personal growth in his interior life.
I was in a group called Wild Orchid and it just wasn’t working. I wasn’t being myself. What I should have done was say. ‘Girls, it’s really time for me to go on my own. I need to fulfill this dream of mine to have a solo album.’ And I didn’t know how to do that. I wanted to please them.
My party was the only party that opposed the bifurcation of the state in Parliament, and I was suspended from the House along with the other MP from my party. TDP supported and voted for bifurcation, as did the Congress and BJP. Every party barring mine voted.
I think Michelle Obama ought to wear her hair exactly the way she wants to wear her hair. I am not looking for Michelle Obama to cut her hair off like I have mine, very short. I’m not looking for her to do twists. I’m looking for her to wear what’s comfortable for her.
Nicki Minaj, I’m at MTV. I’m going to be honest with you: I love you. I like you. I want you; I want you to be mine. Only reason I’m not telling you this face to face is because I understand that you’re busy.
It’s always been a dream of mine to get somewhere and to have my mom and dad with me up there.
I’ve been in love with the cinema since childhood and it’s a fantasy of mine to appear in a Hollywood movie.
Playing Mark Antony in ‘Rome‘ will always be a favourite of mine because he was such an outrageously big and interesting character to play. Also, the fact that we were able, with that character, to find out and present the public with a biography of that man that had not been really seen before.
That’s a dream of mine, to be able to coach at the NBA level.
A friend of mine, that I had known for some time, came up one day with an old guitar. I don’t know where he got it, I don’t know how long he’d had it, but he knew about two chords on it. He proceeded to teach them to me, and then we proceeded to go crazy over music.
Animals have always been a passion of mine, being able to help them because they can’t help themselves, and I think that people have treated them so badly over the years and it’s just not fair. It’s something I feel like I can help make a difference.
I’m funny with food, even if it’s vegan. I like it well well, well, well done. I don’t want anything there that reminds me of blood. I get mine extra well done. That way, when I look at it, I’m like, ‘Okay, cool.’
I loathe my name because it is mine and also because it is not mine; it is at once too intimate and seems to have no connection with me. Perhaps because the name is quite common, it never seems to fit me, or fit me alone. Nevertheless, when I see the name, I always feel a peculiar sense of shame.
I grew up in a home where I was literally told from a young age, ‘No daughter of mine will ever wash a man’s socks,’ and I am pleased to say I never have. It was made clear that whatever I wanted to do I should aspire to, regardless of my gender.
And a friend of mine in the Christys, we used to sit up at night and talk and read and wonder if reincarnation, and if it wasn’t reality, what would happen to the human spirit when the body dies? Is there an afterlife? Just questions like that.
The more you get into any religion, it becomes the same. It really becomes how you treat other people and how you get outside yourself. How you look to help other people, and how you get out of this ‘I, me, mine’ type of thing.
I really gravitatetoward having all different styles in my closet because I feel like I always want to dress to fit my mood or where I am going. I do love Jason Wu; he is also a really good friend of mine, and I love what he is doing for HugoBoss these days.
When you start out with goals – mine were to play polytonally and polyrhythmically – you never exhaust that. I started doing that in the 1940s. It’s still a challenge to discover what can be done with just those two elements.
During the day, I was a doctor. At night, you know, I was a comic. And it was really just to let off some steam. It just became my golf, you know, in many ways. Most doctors have golf as a hobby. Mine was doing comedy.
People have come up and told me they were WCW fans from the early ’90s, or they were watching my work in FCW when I first started in the late ’80s, and they’ll spit out a match of mine that they still remember. I stand there in awe, shocked that someone still remembers.
I wouldn’t like to see a chick of mine taking her clothes off and kissing a fellow on screen. And my girls must get very hurt when they see me doing it.
The homosexual community wants me to be gay. The heterosexual community wants me to be straight. Every writer thinks, I’m the journalist who’s going to make him talk. I pray for them. I pray that they get a life and stop living mine!
I have songs that define characters from each film of mine. It can be a song from that particular film or something that just goes with the wavelength of the film; you listen to it, and it gives you that rhythm. I can’t articulate how it helps, but it somehow gives you an understanding of the character.
‘The Movie’ is something that I made with some friends of mine in L.A. My friend, Luke Eberl, is the filmmaker. He shot this movie and asked a bunch of his friends to be involved with it. I just saw him the other day and there is no money to finish the film. But, you know, I literally have a cameo in it.
This mug of mine is as plain as a barndoor. Why should people pay 35 cents to look at it?
Hunger is a deep concern of mine, and I feel that no one should go without food in this world as long as there are caring people to lend a hand. I’ve had to struggle in my past and I know what it’s like to go without, so I try to do as much as I can to help bringawareness to an issue that hits very close to home for me.
I stand on the sidewalk watching it because the responsibility is mine and I must, I take a very firm hold on the handles of the baby carriage and I wheel it into the traffic.
Just once I would like to persuade the audience not to wear any article of blue denim. If only they could see themselves in a pair of brown corduroys like mine instead of this awful, boring blue denim.
A friend of mine has a big farm in the desert, and she picks up feathers and roadkill for me, then makes it into clothes. I think it’s cool to wear roadkill. If I died and somebody wanted to wear my teeth around their neck to VMAs, I’d feel honored.
The ideas I stand for are not mine. I borrowed them from Socrates. I swiped them from Chesterfield. I stole them from Jesus. And I put them in a book. If you don’t like their rules, whose would you use?
‘Funny Games’ was conceived as a provocation. My other films are different. If people feel my other films are, or respond to them as provocation, then that’s quite different. ‘Funny Games’ is the only one of mine where my intention was to provoke the audience.
I’ve lost a few notes on the top. But I’ve gained a little insight about what makes people comfortable when they’re listening or watching a performance of mine. It usually has to do with singing something that isn’t vocally too strenuous.
I never get recognized for ‘Mean Girls.’ I can be walking around with Daniel Franzese, who’s in the movie and a friend of mine, and people will come up to him and start freaking out and have no idea who I am.
Today I’m committed to take care of your families like I’ve taken care of mine. I want to make Mexico the best country to live in.
Josefina Vazquez Mota
Lauryn Hill’s always been a hero of mine. And Bruno Mars, Janelle Monae and Adele, those are the current artists I would reference in terms of who’s been able to do really amazing pop records with really cool, organicthrowback elements of soul in there as well.
I have been blessed with some incredible compositions to record and perform and all of my songs have had the ability to grow as I and those who have supported this career of mine for these 50 years have.
I played the cello from when I was ten, and then I bought a guitar from the father of some friends of mine and played that for a while. And then when I was fourteen or so, I bought a guitar – a real nice one – in Durham, North Carolina, that I worked with up until I was about twenty-five.
Whoopi Goldberg looked like me, she had hair like mine, she was dark like me. I’d been starved for images of myself. I’d grown up watching a lot of American TV. There was very little Kenyan material, because we had an autocraticruler who stifled our creativeexpression.
It was always a fantasy of mine growing up – my favorite program was always ‘Little House on the Prairie‘ – so I always wanted to wear those looks. When I was a child, I wouldn’t let my mom put me in anything but calico dresses and now… whaddaya know, every day I’m in a calico dress, basically, so it’s kind of funny.
I think we all have madness in us, it’s just that I’ve realized mine and found a way to let it out.
I had never thought of hosting, but a really good friend of mine said, ‘This is the most empoweredplatform to speak to young people about the issues that you care about, which is why you’re in this in the first place.’ So I was like, ‘Yeah, no, it makes perfect sense.’ And so that’s what I started doing.
The term ‘new queer cinema’ and the films of mine that were associated with that term are from a very, very different time, one almost entirely defined by the AIDSera. It was a very different social and cultural regard for the lives, the experiences, the worth of gay people.
Part of the beauty of Victoria’s Secretmodeling is that they are called ‘Angels‘ for a reason – because they’re aesthetics are supposed to be unobtainable. But so are mine. No one could ever be me. Look exactly as I do. Be exactly as I am.
Any album that you pick up of mine, you know it’s an Akon album. The guests are very limited, and you get to really feel the experience. You get the Akon experience when you get the albums. I always want to make sure that stays the way it is. I don’t want to flood the album to where you losefocus on why you bought it.
Drink to me only with thine eyes, And I will pledge with mine; Or leave a kiss but in the cup And I’ll not look for wine.
I raise quarterhorses. Mine are mostly thoroughbred cross horses, a little bigger horses than some people like. I sell them or use them on the ranch. A lot of them go to the rodeoarena and some of them go to racetracks.
As an actor there’s a lot of scrutiny and, even when you’ve had success, it becomes about sustaining that success. A friend of mine described it as a peakless mountain. Even for De Niro there’s Pacino and for Pacino there’s De Niro.
A movie of mine is going to be released in Japan next year. I play a waitress who’s a really regular girl in this movie. The English title isn’t decided yet, but in Japanese it’s I’ll Get on the A Train Sometime.
Let my body be delivered to the earth without attention to the place where it lies; nothing should be associated with my dusty remains. Shame on him who draws any attention to a rotted flesh that is already no longer mine: he is worshipping the worms nibbling it.
I make films from the heart. I want to concentrate on the job of doing great and honest performances, and I’m gonna get better with every performance of mine, with every film of mine.
I was friends with Cube; he was also a fan of mine, and I a fan of him. Even before Balistyx happened I was hanging out with him, taking him to ‘The Arsenio Hall Show’ for his first time. I was like, ‘Ice Cube, I’ve got a plus 1, you should go,’ and I took him. Cube wasn’t known at all yet.
I want to be able to work on a project that will give people around the world the chance to represent their own people, their own culture, their own stories, rather than just Hollywood – really, you know, dominated Hollywood. And that’s a dream of mine.
Work less than you think you should. It took me a while to realise there was a point each day when my creativity ran out and I was just producing words – usually lousy ones – for their own sake. And nap: it helps to refresh the brain, at least mine.
But in my heart of hearts, this is the kind of thing… this is what everyone is struggling with in their lives – relationships and family. To me, it’s always an interesting area to mine. I’m drawn to it.
St. Michaels Mount is a favourite place of mine; people will walk across to the Mount all day and assume they will be able to walk home. The spectacle of hundreds of people realising that the path they walked over on is disappearing under several feet of water is very amusing.
As I grew up, I was interested in other areas, too, especially literature. It became a major love of mine. Later, it became a difficult choice for me as to whether to major in music or literature. It wasn’t until my 30s that I began a profession in music.
When I think of the future, I think of my 15 year old son Connor and my 12 year old daughter Meghan. I worry about their future because your kids are as important to you as mine are to me. And I am unwilling to leave our children with so much debt.
If at the end of May we don’t, we’ll reform, regroup, decide how we’re going to go about it, but if the task force can’t come up with the bill, I’m going to push mine, and go ahead and make the changes in it that we’ve been working on now for a year or two and just go for it.
I have a hard time watching the shows now. It is like opening up a yearbook when you were in junior high. I think everybody looks back at their photos and cringe, and I get to experience it with everybody else in the world looking at mine.
However far fiction writersstray from their own lives and experiences – and I stray pretty far from mine – I think, ultimately, that we may be writing what we need to write in some way, albeit unconsciously.
Mine is only one of the millions of hearts broken over the death of Whitney Houston, I will always be grateful and in awe of the wonderful performance she did on my song, and I can truly say from the bottom of my heart, ‘Whitney, I will always love you. You will be missed.’
I was never a part of the Actor’s Studio, because two friends of mine started it in 1947 and by that time I’d gone to California.
I don’t want to know movie directors. I don’t want to be close to them. I don’t want to interfere with their work. I don’t want them to interfere with mine.
I used to do the beat box. A friend of mine, he was the rapper and after, we’d be doing a block party or something or a house party, and he’s gettin’ all the attention and I’d end up with a handful of spit, you know, from doing the beats.
Women and men grow up with both sexes. Our mothers and fathers mean a lot to us, so it’s just a question of finding a balance between their influences. I’ve found mine. And it tends to be more on the male side. I mean male side the way we understand it in the West.
There are two schools of thought: There are those actors who explain to you that they know exactly how they’re going to do the part… And then there is the other method, which is to have no method at all. This is mine.
Everyone’s got skeletons in their closet, and I’ve got a million in mine, believe me. I tested the envelope; I pushed it. Whenever somebody in authority told me not to do something, I did it just to find out why they said not to do it.
I sat with myself one day and asked, ‘Who is in those prestigious literarycircles? Do they represent me? Do they appreciate the topics I write about and the style in which I write? Do those gatekeepers let a demographic like mine through the door?’ And the answer was no.
I’ve had to deal with everything but everyone has helped me, including Sir Alex Ferguson, to get through. George Best was a good friend of mine. We loved each other, we both knew where we were coming from.
If we had pursued what President Nixon declared in 1970 as the war on cancer, we would have cured many strains. I think Jack Kemp would be alivetoday. And that research has saved or prolonged many lives, including mine.
It is difficult to describe in short the enthusiasm and devotion provoked by and given to my research. We lived almost in poverty. I used pencils, two for a nickel, and could not buy a fountain pen, when I lost mine.
Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy, I knew Jack Kennedy. Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you’re no Jack Kennedy.
I think everybody has their own way of looking at their lives as some kind of pilgrimage. Some people will see their role as a pilgrim in terms of setting up a fine family, or establishing a business inheritance. Everyone’s got their own definition. Mine, I suppose, is to know myself.
A few nights ago I went to a Hollywood screening of a small independent film made by Sally Kirkland, an old friend of mine who also did terrific job acting in it. There were other actors in it and they were all terrific.
In high school, my English teacher Celeste McMenamin introduced me to the great novels and Shakespeare and taught me how to write. Essays, poetry, critical analysis. Writing is a skill that was painful then but a love of mine now.
Tonya Verbeek is a rival of mine I always come up against in the semis or the final of the Olympics. We have been fighting each other for a long time, so she knew my wrestling, and I knew hers… I was thinking that the only thing I could do was somehow to deceive her, anticipate her and get in my tackles.
A friend of mine that I was in a band with started me on Kafka, which in turn led to Camus and Sartre.
I grew up around a whole bunch of girls, and one thing I realized is what they had on their plate was very different than what I had on mine. The things girls are made to be responsible for is a heavy burden – take care of your younger siblings, do good in school, have some extracurriculars. The pressure is intense.
Like any parents, mine wanted me to have a secure job with a regular wage and career prospects. And the one job my father knew of, that he’d had experience of himself, was the army, so he could help me in that direction.
While writing ‘City Boy,’ I relied mainly on my own memories. In particular, I was able to describe the effect of gay liberation on an individual life (mine) as events paralleled my own growing self-acceptance; in this case, the political truly was the personal.
Marc Lore has been a mentor of mine for a long time. He taught me how to hire people and how to do the hardest thing in business, which is to make a great culture. I believe Marc is the most innovative and ambitious e-commerce entrepreneur on the planet.
People make mistakes and I’ve probably made a few more than others, but unfortunately mine are also a bit more public. That’s the way it is. You’ve just got to get on with life. After all, it’s not a rehearsal.
I do a job and am lucky enough to do a job that I love, but it is a hard one. I’m not saying it is as hard as working in a coal mine, but it is still difficult in a different way. Sometimes you have to go through very strong emotional journeys and then come back to yourself. And that can be difficult to control.
I’ve read a lot of books on the laws of attraction, and in my home, I have a big book on Muhammad Ali, which I’ve read because he is, like, a hero of mine, but other than that, no, I’m not a big reader.
In ordinary detective novels you never see the consequences of what happens in a story in the next book. That you do in mine.
Down the mine I dreamed of cricket; I bowled imaginery balls in the dark; I sent the stumps spinning and heard them rattling in the tunnels. No mishap was going to stop me from bowling in the real game, especially this one.
Perhaps the greatest challenge has been trying to keep my time to myself and my private life private in order to do my job. Everything that is most mine belongs to everyone now.
My first job was on Broadway. Then I went into the Navy. When I came out of the Navy, I went back to Broadway and a friend of mine, Lauren Bacall, was in Hollywood filming with Humphrey Bogart. She told one of her producers I was great in my play, and he saw it and cast me in ‘The Strange Love of Martha Ivers’.
I love acting. Acting is a true love of mine, acting and math. Although they are both creative, they use very different sides of your brain. And I love both. Acting is my first love, and that’s my main career, it really is.
And I like to keep whatever is mine remaining that way. It’s a funny little game to play and it’s a slipperyslope. I always say to myself I’m never going to give anything away because there’s never any point or benefit for me.
I got the pilot for ‘Scrubs’ sent to me, and in the margin for Dr. Cox, it said ‘a John McGinley type.’ So when I went in to audition, I said to BillyLawrence, who’s a dear friend of mine, I said, ‘Well, I’m John McGinley.’
The first voice they hear is mine, the first touch they feel is mine, the first human face they see is mine. They just think I’m a strangetiger who walks on two legs.
I was the eldest daughter with these four beautiful younger sisters with ringlets and pretty faces, and I used to dress them up in Victorian clothes and take them out for the day and pretend they were mine.
The number one mistake is givingpets table scraps. I made the mistake thinking I was showing my dog love by giving her food and treats. You see a tiny 4 oz. piece of cheese, but for a Boston Terrier like mine, that’s like one and a half hamburgers. That’s unhealthy.
I had, toward the last, been shut off from all visitors, and so when the lawyer, Peter A. Hendricks, came and told me that friends of mine were willing to take charge of me if I would rather be with them than in the asylum, I was only too glad to give my consent.
I started out doing something little. I went to Africa to spend five weeks putting roofs on a building. I seen the small child that stepped on a land mine. Three months later, I’m back helping pull the land mines out. Little things just kept getting bigger and bigger and bigger.
Asian parents, or a lot of parents in general, they have no idea what goes on in this industry. Mine were born in the Philippines, where it’s different, because it is about who you know, and who knows what you have to do to get to the top? So they had a lot of that skepticism.
A lot of my colleagues at school became great friends of mine.
Each generation doubtless feels called upon to reform the world. Mine knows that it will not reform it, but its task is perhaps even greater. It consists in preventing the world from destroying itself.
I was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award 19 times before I won. The first nine years, I heard someone else’s name called; after that – I think it was a protective thing – I didn’t hear whose name was called, but nobody was making eye contact with me, so I knew that it wasn’t mine.
I just have to be very clear. Whether or not I lose weight or stay the same, it’s purely a choice of mine for health. Not because I think that plus size, curvy, voluptuous, big bodies aren’t attractive – because I think they’re awesome and sexy.
Some comedians love their characters. I don’t fall in love with mine. In fact, I get tired of them very fast. You have to be willing to throw it all away.
A friend of mine once told me that I can’t screw up when I play my own music. I also take voice lessons, play other peoples’ songs out of music books, and occasionally figure out how to play other people’s music from records. This keeps my ears, fingers, and mind working.
De Niro was a hero of mine. And Sean Penn. But I’ve realized I can’t operate at that level of intensity. That’s okay for movies. On TV, when you live with horror day in and day out, you have to protect yourself.
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.
I remember, I was doing ‘Jesus Christ Superstar‘ in London in the early ’70s, and friends of mine had come over from Dublin, and they’re knocking on the stage door after the show saying, ‘Colm, come on, let’s go for a drink.’ I knew that if I went with them, I wouldn’t be able to do my job the next day.
If you want to maintain a sustainablesupply of fish you have to farm the fish, rather than mine them. So putting your money into fishing fleets that are going to exacerbate the problem by over-fishing is not the way to preserve the underlyingasset.
It was in New York, and I’ve always wanted to film in New York. And the writer was a teenage friend of mine. We did youth theatre together when we were 16 and always had a dream of making a film together. And ten years later, we’ve done it. So it’s great.
I came in on the decline. Phil Elliot was in first, he got his book out, he soldthirteen thousand, I think he got two issues out before I got mine in, this was March ’87. He was out in December ’86.
I’ve had to do all kinds of jobs to pay the rent. I’ve even worked in a Cornish tin mine.
There’s a line I have that our family was designed more for public than for private. But there are definitely some things that are only mine. I am someone who dreams at night, and you don’t know what I’m dreaming.
A friend of mine described it this way: When they were born it was like a meteor landed in our house and blew everything apart. We had to just put all the pieces back.
John Cena’s match with me, the one that kind of got him hired with WWE, I remember they were there to look at John, obviously. He looked great – he was like the blue-chipper – and John was a good friend of mine, so I had no problemwhatsoever helping him kind of highlight and do his thing.
Well, you know, the best compliment I’ve ever gotten from a coworker is Anna Drezen, who is a longtime friend of mine from college, which she was like – one day she turned to me and she said, you know, Bowen, you make video games seem accessible or you make it seem – you make them seem less esoteric or whatever she said.
The other thing is that doctors test only the most common estrogen level. There are three kinds of estrogen in a woman but they don’t test the other two because they are so rare; mine was the third kind of estrogen.
If two-three films of mine release at the same time and if all of them feel like they are from the same lyricist then something is not quite right. The language of all has to be different if they are different stories.
