It’s true, I used to be so shy. I used to never talk, just sit back and do my thing. I was never bullied, though, and it was never like it was something that needed to be ‘fixed‘, like being shy is a bad thing.
If you make it anywhere in life, you owe that success to the people along the way who stuck up for you, or madesacrifices for you, and gave you a push when you needed it. In my case, those people were my family.
I think the first contest I did, I was somewhere just over 300 pounds. With my frame, I needed to add more weight and put more muscle on to get betterleverage and be more successful. Just to get stronger, really. I had to work really hard.
I realised those things my ego needed – fame and success – were going to make me terriblyunhappy. So I wrenched myself away from that. I had to. I had to walk away from America and say goodbye to the biggest part of my career because I knew, otherwise, my demons would get the better of me.
There were a couple of things in the intervention that made me know I needed help. One was a letter from my daughtersaying that she was ashamed she had the same last name as I did, which will shock you a little bit.
But that we didn’t have the level of experience in terms of working in the industry so you weren’t sure and you needed to see it and this is an industry that the more you work the better you get and that the more opportunities you have the better you get.
My mother stopped working when she had my brother. She was a full time mom until I started getting heavily into ice skatinglessons, and it got to the point where they really needed my mom to earn an income.
I think at that time I obviously wasn’t aware of what I really needed. But conversely, my wanting to prove something to everyone was beneficial ’cause if I hadn’t done it then, maybe I’d never have done it.
So I sat down with him and portrayed more the side of the character he needed to see. Which is what I do when I go in for an interview for a part I like. As much as you think you’re dealing with creative people, they see you for what your image is out there.
Well, the whole story is in the book, but the short answer is that I was the first informationarchitect in an organization that was traditionally design-oriented, and I felt I needed a tool to help me gain the trust and support of my colleagues.
I remember, when we first got married, the only money we had was what was in Chip’s pocket. He always had a wad of cash, but we were broke. If I needed to go groceryshopping, it’s whatever was in his pocket. That’s how we paid the bills.
I never would’ve thought in Homeland Security that you would see someone saying that we needed to have hearings on radicalization of Christianity because it’s a purported threat to America as much as radicalization of Islam.
I used to think I needed a man to define myself. Not any more.
Growing up in Canada, none of my family were performers or anything like that, but I was terrible at hockey, so they needed something for me to do on Saturdays for me to get out of the house. I signed up for theater school on Saturdays, and I’d go for four-and-a-half hours every Saturdaymorning and learn about theater.
A generation ago, or two, when there were threechannels, plus PBS, and when you needed – when you needed 15 million people to make a living, the media could focus on the broad country. And most people had no choice about getting political information. It was there at 6:30 whether you wanted it or not.
We were going to have to experiment, and we needed to develop our younger players. And a lot of the changes were because of injuries. But that’s where I give a lot of credit to the group in terms of being able to maintain things.
Their Internet usage is growing very rapidly, and even they can do the math: If everyone in China needed an IPv4 address – just one – this country would use up one third of the entire public IP address space.
Sometimes, a concept is needed to spark myself and the vocalist; sometimes a concept isn’t necessary for that spark. It all depends on the moment, because I don’t want to be that dude that every album has to be this story or that story.
Van Morrison is probably, at this point in time, my biggest influence as a vocalist. When we were making our last album I had a vinyl copy of ‘Veedon Fleece’ in the vocal booth in front of me, in the dorky sense. I think there were candlesaround, which is really tacky, but hey, I needed to channel Van the Man!
I love my job. I don’t find it stressful, and I only took a rest because I didn’t find another club after Real. It was not something that I needed because of stress, because that is not a problem for me. I don’t have pressure. I like my job, and I know how it is. I have experience.
When Ben and I first got married and we first had kids, I felt I needed to prove we could still do it and I could still work separately from Ben and I could still work with him. I just let go of all of that now. I said to him, ‘For me, a little bit goes a long way.’
Faith and doubt both are needed – not as antagonists, but working side by side to take us around the unknowncurve.
People who think about time travel stories sometimes think that going back in time would be fun because you would have all the information you needed to be much more astute than the people there, when the truth is of course you wouldn’t.
I knew that I needed to do something that I desperatelyloved. There was a period where I did question if it was acting because I knew that I would be making things hard on myself. I knew that there was going to be a little bit of a hullabaloo because of my dad being who he is and all that.
I think I’ve grown a lot in the last few years, and I needed to express myself as an artist on this. It wasn’t necessarily about going in and making an album chocked full of hit singles… there were a lot of things I did out of the joy and the want to do it.
Vox populi vox dei: the voice of the people is the voice of God. The slogan was useful for those who first attempted to substitute the people for God as the source of political authority. Their attempt was ultimately so successful that God no longer seems to be needed in government.
My father worked real hard. I admired him. My father taught me you needed to work with your brain and not your back. I’ve made that a passion.
I lived a sloppy life. So I took very small increments in my life. I started making my bed. I started cleaning my room. There were dishes in the sink. It started off with doing small house chores. I saw that the yard needed to be mowed. So instead of being told it needed to be mowed, I would mow it.
I was the guy who would go out and do whatever he needed to do, no matter what.
In Evita I wasn’t really hugelyinvolved with it. I gave a little bit of help but they needed a bit of technical help on the movie and so some of my music people went in at the end of the movie and helped out with it.
When I was in Taiwan, we were there for about 8 months, and I was 11 at the time, so it was definitely a culture shock. But it was a really interesting time to be there. I didn’t entirely realize how different it is from the States. I just accepted it because I was there and my parents needed to be there.
I feel respect is in your hands as an actor when portraying a character, particularly when it’s from the Indian subcontinent. I do make a conscious effort to do so and often talk to the directors especially about the heavy accent when it’s not needed.
So I went to Miami in ’74 with my family and while I was there it became obvious that we needed money and we needed to do something, because my family, we left without anything really, and we didn’t have any money to begin with.
I really try at least to come back and answer the question as to whether that was really the best way to do that and was I really thinking straight and how did my opponentsbehave and how did the judges behave was needed.
Oh, definitely and I talk about all the things that I really needed to make me happy at that point in time were outside of Mississippi, and now all the things that I need to make me happy are back there.
America always seemed to me this foreign land that I imagined I could escape to if I needed to get away – and I think that came both from the fact that I was born there and from watching so many American movies when I was a kid.
Very often a change of self is needed more than a change of scene.
A. C. Benson
So often at home in the West Village, I’m like, ‘Why aren’t I allowed a horse?’ I would keep a horse in a stable in my apartment, and I would fit him with rubbershoes, and we’d just roll him out. If I needed to go to a meeting somewhere, I’d just get on my horse and go acrosstown.
As a kid, I thought of myself as stupid because I needed remedial help. It was not until much later that I figured out that I was dyslexic and that my trouble with spelling and sounding out words did not mean I was stupid, but early impressions stuck with me and colored my world for a time.
Early on I did all the production for UGK, like on ‘Southern Way.’ Yeah, 90 percent of the production and not for any other reason then I couldn’t find anybody that would give me what I needed, so I had to make it myself.
I was writing a script about the Jokermenacing a regular person who had strayed into his path, and I needed to give him a gang of henchmen to work with him. The idea occurred to me, let’s put in a female henchperson, because that seemed like a fun variation on the regular big thug guys.
When I was a kid and I’d be in trouble. I’d ask God to help me, and then once the fire was out, I wouldn’t talk to Him anymore. When I got older, I began to find I needed some help spiritually, just to function.
Stephen Adly Guirgis
Iker Casillas is one of those keepers who always seems to be at his best in the really difficult games when he has hardly got anything to do but reacts when needed in those emergencysituations.
I was an electrician, and I started acting as a hobby because I needed a distraction – I was bored! And only when I started did I think, ‘Sheesh, what have I gotten into?’ I had to go after it fully; I just had to.
Being chronically shy I needed to create a persona for myself and be involved with a band where I could be ruler of my own kingdom. Then Pulp became hugely popular and I lost control of it, which is when it all went wrong.
If I truly believe everything that’s in that book, God is in control. He is in control. He’s working for my good. Doesn’t mean everything’s going to be smooth, but that’s all I needed to know. There is a light at the end of the tunnel.
I brought a Border Collie back home to Vancouver from Wales – where some of my ancestors are from – and needed to challenge him in other ways than just being my pet. So I investigated sheep herding and took a few lessons, and decided I was probably learning more than my dog!
My father, Phillip Gilmore, was very talented. He was getting seriously into dancing. He was on ‘Soul Train’ and won $2,500. But the Bay Area was too small for him. I don’t think he had the space to do what he needed to do.
What I wanted to do and what I needed to do was something entirely different, and through reading Roussel I learned that I could do what I wanted all on my own and that I didn’t have to rely on what had actually happened in my somewhat limited life and reading.
Losing my father at a tender age was hard, and I felt it more so while growing up when I needed a father to talk to. Especially while pursuing an acting career where I would have loved his guidance and advice, since it was his passion as well.
In ‘Casino,’ there was this scene where BobDe Niro tape-records Sharon Stone’s phone call. Then he asks her about where she’s going, and he catches her in a lie. It was a great scene, especially for Bob’s work, but we found that, in light of the whole film, it wasn’t needed.
But I just felt at one point that I was on a hamster wheel, you know? Just doing movie after movie and thinking so much about career related things and I think missing out on hanging with my friends and family as much I needed to.
A few years after ‘Melrose Place,’ when the luster of ‘Melrose Place’ wore off and what was left was just the stink, and I was just doing bad TV movies, that was a personal low point. I felt I needed to stop doing those, and I did.
I had written a tune called ‘Shake, Rattle and Roll,’ but the white stationsrefused to play it – they thought it was low-class black music. We thought what we needed was a new name. But a white disc jockey named Alan Freed laid on it, and he thought up the name ‘rock n’ roll.’
Well, let’s assume the world is linear. If we required a certain amount of troops per 25,000 population in the Balkans, if the world is not radically different, something of the same extent is going to be needed in Iraq.
I started my career in parent education with the idea that we needed to let our kids go. I believed that parents were suffocating for their children. There was no room for individuality and personhood.
I grew up with nothing, so whenever I got to where I could have something I felt like I needed to have everything I couldn’t have when I was young.
I feel that the music that I do is somewhat of a lost art and it’s not as popular as dance or pop music and people are not as interested in it. But it’s something that I believe in and I feel that it’s needed, so that’s why I do it and I will keep doing it until everybody hears it and gets it.
During the 2000 election, the current administration told our military, help is on the way. That is clearly not the case. The administration has failed to request the funds needed for the defense of this Nation. We must give the Army what it needs.
Again, we saw in Bosnia – we had U.N. peacekeepers tied to trees, being taken hostage. The fact is they don’t have the type of deliberate and authoritative rule that I think is needed to get the job done.
You know what ‘FAILING’ stands for? It stands for ‘Finding An Important Lesson, Inviting Needed Growth.’
We needed time off from each other after our last tour because there was a lot of personal stuff we had to take care of. Eddie needed hip replacementsurgery. Al needed his back worked on. And I was going to have a baby.
Thinking about Amazon’s restraints – the company has never tried to introduce a social network or an email service, for example – you can understand something about the future Amazon seems to envision: A time when no screen is needed at all, just your voice.
Declining overseas admissions costs us not only much needed revenues for colleges and universities, but much more importantly, we lose the best opportunity we have to introduce foreign students to all that America has to offer the world.
When I left my parents’ home when I was 19, I went to the University of Florida, and within 24 hours was in the mental healthdepartment. And within 20 minutes, I was being told by the director there that they didn’t have what I needed there.
Film acting is really the trick of doing moments. You rarely do a take that lasts more than 20 seconds. You really earn your spurs acting onstage. I needed to do that for myself. I would hate to say at the end of everything that I never did a stage play.
When I was 15, I worked as a bag boy in a grocery store. I also needed to walk old ladies to their car and put their bags in the car, and they would give me two dollars. I felt like the richest man in the world.
I always felt like I needed to act. Not that I wanted to act, but I needed to. And I still feel that same way. There’s an expression that I get to have in acting that I can’t consciously express in my life. It has always defined me and it always will.
Sure we have skilled players, but the biggest thing might just be that we are so well conditioned and how we can play for 90 minutes at a high tempo which is needed in soccer at an international level.
I was very lucky. Things happened, both bad and good, but I never got into real, deep trouble. But it wore me down. By the time I was 18, I was done. I didn’t want to live the life any more. I needed to develop past the point that busking takes you to.
Also, it was a cultural moment that wasn’t being represented in terms of women who were successful and had choices they didn’t have before. They needed a show that they can watch that they felt like represented them.
When Def Jam wanted to sign Method Man, they wanted to sign Method Man and Old Dirty. And Old Dirty wanted to be on Def Jam – everybody, that was like the dream label. But if I had Old Dirty and Method Man on Def Jam, that’s two keypieces going in the same direction, whereas there’s other labels that needed to be infiltrated.
But on second thought, after I decreed the state of emergency, I came to the conclusion that that was impossible to achieve without bloodshed because the street protesters were full of anger and nearly out of control. This is why I thought we needed to find another way out.
While working hard for my career, I looked after my family and have been there for my mother and in-laws when they needed me around. They reciprocated in kind with their unconditional love and support for my career.
And what is needed to prevent them from joininggangs was amplerecreation for boys as well as girls, jobs and internships for training and money, and assistance to allow their families to live in decent homes.
In the case of my book, I don’t think it’s really the coming-out gay novel that everyone really needed, even though it was received as such. The boy is too creepy, he betrays his teacher, the only adult man with whom he’s enjoyed a sexual experience, etc.
Anyone who knows me, knows I don’t walk away from a commitment, but I had a commitment to myself. Yes, there were times Nickelodeon made it more difficult than it needed to be, but there were also times they made it easier.
The reason I’m not more political is because I have music. And from a young age, I needed it. After prison, my father came to America, joined the Army, fought in Vietnam – and was exposed to Agent Orange. He died a slow, horribledeath. Music was my escape.
The problem is that music is selfish in that you need to make it for yourself, so that you can give it away, and those two things don’t jive. I needed to find the right reason to play that had the magic and mystery and excitement that made me want to play in the first place.
I was coming back from Tel Aviv recently, and we had forty minutes of bumps. I got so scared I grabbed a paper and pen and put them in my pocket, just in case we crashed and I needed to write a letter from wherever we landed.
What I needed most was to love and to be loved, eager to be caught. Happily I wrapped those painfulbonds around me; and sure enough, I would be lashed with the red-hot pokers or jealousy, by suspicions and fear, by burst of anger and quarrels.
It used to be that you needed a $500-million-a-year company in order to reach a worldwide audience of consumers. Now, all you need is a Steamaccount. That changes a whole bunch of stuff. It’s kind of a boring ‘gee, information processing changes a stuff’ story, but it’s going to have an impact on every single company.
I suppose that every time there is difficulty. I remember about Space Mountain: It took us ten years before we found the technology that would allow such a ride. And during these ten years, I had a model that I kept, waiting for the technology we needed.
The growth of technology is such that it is not possible today for a nuclear physicist to switch into medical physics without training. The field is now much more technical. More training is needed to do the job.
Singles needed to come back. And what I tried to do in my online experiment was to change the rules for myself and make available at a more regular pace the fruits of my labour, for people who decided they wanted to support my recordings.
Googleattracts so much talent, it can afford to look beyond traditional metrics, like G.P.A. For most young people, though, going to college and doing well is still the best way to master the tools needed for many careers.
But when they needed love or help or had a problem of any kind, they could always go to Roselle because she was always there for them. That was not always the case with me.
We should’ve asked China to be a portion of the space station. We should’ve worked out ways that we can… just give away the technology that we have that puts things up into space, with cooperation up above the atmosphere that’s needed to help each other.
State and local government, with financial support from the federal government, should offer a program to educate and train foster children for employment and provide them with financial assistance, as needed, until they reach age 21.
Let’s say music is needed for only 43 seconds of film. You have to score it so it is an entity, so it won’t bother anyone when it ends so quickly. Or if a song runs 2 minutes and 45 seconds, but the titles run a minute longer, you have to arrange that song so it doesn’t get repetitious.
Whatever the opposite of regret is best describes how I’ve always felt about that decision – it opened me up to a million creative opportunities I needed to experience away from the bull and distorting mirrors that fame engenders.
This was all very new to me and I did not want to ruin his film! So we worked hard on that basis of confidence that is needed to collaboratecomfortably.
Often we women are risk averse. I needed the push. Now, more than ever, young women need more seasoned women to provide that encouragement, to take a risk, to go for it. Once a glass ceiling is broken, it stays broken.
You’re convincing these big, tough football players to wear what was essentially women’s lingerie. There was a little bit of a Jedi mind trick that needed to take place. The product really spoke for itself once guys felt it and touched it.
Many years ago, it was my opportunity to serve as president of the Canadian Mission. There we had a branch with very limited priesthood. We always had a missionary presiding over the branch. I received a strong impression that we needed to have a member of the branch preside there.
I was so full of joy, the happiest kid. Things changed. I don’t want to talk about it. I needed attention. I was pathologically shy. I’d climb the highest tree or try to ski off the highest mountain. I’d get into fights. I wanted contact. I’d hit somebody, just for that.
My father was a tailor. He worked from seven o’clock in the morning until seven at night. At least when he got home, my mother always cooked him a very good dinner. Lots of potatoes, I remember; he used to knock them down like a dose of salts. He needed it, after a 12-hour day.
I felt so out of place at the Miss India pageant. I had just come back from America, and I was told I needed to lose my American accent and learn the Queen’s English, so I had to enunciate my vowels and speak well and eloquently. Giving up a New York accent is pretty hard.
But my father was also the one who told me I needed to clean up my mouth or I’d never find a man. What’s very important to him is manners. Show up on time. Always send thank-you letters. He is one of the more thoughtful humans I’ve ever met. He’s a great man and a very good dad.
People who are feeling bullied and people who feel like outsiders should talk to their parents and guardians about finding a place with likeminded people where they can feel accepted. That’s what I needed, and that’s what I found with musical theater.
I felt like I needed to come to terms with the decision I’d made to let go of my family. What do you do when you want to be loyal to your family but you feel that loyalty to them is in conflict somehow with loyalty to yourself?
I wanted to give things away or sell them somewhere, but I realized that some of the pieces are so special – limited editions, designergifts – and needed to be appreciated. When I started my own charityfoundation and was looking to raise money, I was like, ‘Boom. That’s it!’
I was in the room with, you know, more than a dozen Republicans trying to negotiate the stimulus. Most of them decided the politics of the situation meant they should walk away, even if it wasn’t responsible in terms of what our country needed right then.
Honestly, I never needed a mask to go onstage. It was me who was there, and it was always what I felt, based on what I had learned at home, in my religion, and from society. I clung to that: ‘This is me, it has to be me.’ And if I had an encounter with someone of the same sex, I looked away.
The question I asked Georges has now become a general one – You, who thought you were superfluous, who thought there was no place for you in society, not only are you not superfluous, you are needed and so those who were beggars become givers.
Proponents of privatizationargued that cities and states needed private capital to fund all the upgrades that our decaying infrastructure so desperately needed.
Will isn’t a screamingqueen – that’s Jack‘s part. They needed someone to play the part for America. It’s just not the same as Britain. To have a gay character as a lead is risky.
If you were out of a job and your kid needed diapers and your husband just left you, you would be so confused.
I dream that someday the step between my mind and my finger will no longer be needed. And that simply by blinking my eyes, I shall make pictures. Then, I think, I shall really have become a photographer.
I needed to be pushed as an artist and as a person.
It’s quite ironic I suppose, it’s that thing about being in a group when you all start out as friends and then invariably end up hating each other. So I just thought they needed telling really, in case they were labouring under the apprehension that they were still friends.
They thought we were going to hurt the game, but we just wanted to help ourselves, because the players needed to get together to protect their interests.
When I was 13 years old, a professional theater company in my town needed a kid actor. I auditioned, and I got the part, so for just a few weeks I became a member of the company and I met some professional actors.
When we got with George, he didn’t care what was happening. He liked how crazy we were looking and dressing. I kinda liked being with George more so at the time, because George let us do what we wanted to do. But I needed both lessons.
I’ve always overworked in the weight room. I love working with weights. I knew they’d give me the strength I needed.
Florence Griffith Joyner
In the media, I always seemed to come across as someone who was poking fun at the Scots and their football. I guess the Scottish public needed someone to blame for their international defeats, and I fitted the bill perfectly.
As the U.S., the world is questioningwhy not end it, and so if, in fact, we were to pull out, the world would definitely question why we did this to begin with. But I still believe the world would call upon us for help if they needed it.
For a long time I thought I could deal with my anger and hostility on my own. But I couldn’t. I denied that it had affected me, and yet I was so frantic on the inside with other people: I needed to be constantly reassured.
You read a book, write a detailed review as proof you’ve read it, and they give you a badge. That’s where my competitive nature came out. Give me the badges! I would sit in the library all day, not ‘cos I loved reading, just because I needed those badges.
Giving a 10-year mandatoryminimum for a second offense fist fight is not going to reduce the chance that someone will be stabbed 16 times when you are not funding any of the programs that are desperately needed to actually reduce juvenile crime.
When the government takes video of people in public places, the images should only be kept as long as they may reasonably be needed to investigate a crime. After a few days, if there has not been a report of a crime, they should be destroyed.
I needed more stuff that glowed so when the lights went out, you could actually see me the whole time. So I slowly built it from there. I wanted everything to glow. I want my hair to glow, I want my nails to glow, I want my eyes to glow, I want my lips to glow, you know?
The president is entitled to try to persuade Congress and the American people to pursue whatever policies he thinks are needed. But he is not entitled to shut down the government when he fails to persuade us.
I started rapping at the age of 12. That’s when I wrote my first song, but I was more intrigued on learning how the recording process works: how do you create music and what materials I needed. So I educated myself musically so that I could focus on creating my own.
Failed plans should not be interpreted as a failed vision. Visions don’t change, they are only refined. Plans rarely stay the same, and are scrapped or adjusted as needed. Be stubborn about the vision, but flexible with your plan.
I took every chance I could to meet with U.S. soldiers. I talked with them and read the books they gave me about the war. I decided I needed to return to my country and join with them – active duty soldiers and Vietnam Veterans in particular – to try and end the war.
I’ve never been very good at manipulating my career, but fortunately I haven’t needed to.
I like the detail work of telling a story in small pieces, as is done in movie-making, and also the long leap of faith needed to see a theatre performance through each night. Both require focus and self-discipline.
Moreover the incorporation requires the same components needed for protein synthesis, and is inhibited by the same inhibitors. Thus the system is most unlikely to be a complete artefact and is very probably closely related to genuine protein synthesis.
I learned in my Ph.D. the discipline I needed to be successful. Most boxers are not that disciplined. They have talent, but the self-organization – the ability to schedule yourself and your priorities – is lacking. My studies were about the control of training on both the psychological and the physical side.
I am certain more emergency supplemental bills will be needed before this process is concluded. In fact, there is a point I have repeated several times recently which keeps the enormity of this situation in perspective.
I had no album title, and the album is like a journey in that it’s a complete body of work. It’s not just a couple of catchy songs and filler, so I felt that I needed to capture the essence of the album.
Over the last five years, the Administration and the majority in Congress have appropriated less than $900 million for port security grants – despite the Coast Guard‘s determination that $5.4 billion is needed over 10 years.
I think the basic thing that home cooks can learn how to do is just season properly… If the home cook realized how little salt they use compared to what’s needed, it would make their food taste better.
The thought for a long time was that banks needed to be too controlled, too regulated to be turned over to the Wild West of the Net. Then the credit meltdown hit, and we saw just how reckless these so-called safe and regulated institutions were.
I could count my modeling jobs on my hands and toes. When I graduated from college, I moved to New York specifically to study acting, and I needed to pay the bills, and it’s better to make a couple thousand dollars in one day than to wait tablessix days a week.
We do not have a functioning market in the true sense of the word in health care. That’s a layer of transparency that’s sorely needed in America.
One of the first things I did as a new Member of Congress was help form a bipartisan Mississippi RiverCaucus so we could work together from both the North and the South in order to draw attention to the resources that are needed along the Mississippi River.
I needed an opportunity to get back in the studio and get my recording chops back together.
This is a very difficult question. If you take a look at the aging population and demographics, we are going to have a big increase in the number of health care jobs needed in the state and in the country.
I thought that the administration needed bipartisan support, and I was for our commander-in-chief. Because I felt at that time it was the right thing do. If I knew then what I know now, I would have never voted for the war.
As for the assertion that nuclear weapons prevent wars, how many more wars are needed to refute this arguments? Tens of millions have died in the many wars that have taken place since 1945.
I don’t think that much about my relationship with my mother and what it did to me. I sometimes feel terrible regret about her, what her life must have been like. Often, when I’m enjoying something, I think of how meager her rewards were and how much courage, in a way, she needed to go on living.
I used Jimmy to give me what I needed to keep going and to know that I was on the right path with it. I thought I saw Jimmy’s soul all the time we worked. He never covered his soul and I never covered mine. We saw into each other’s souls, very definitely.
I don’t know that I can give a definitive answer to that, I can only say that if we create the right climate those who are producing those products will have the opportunity to move into a higher value product if changes are needed if we get this right.
Overcoming fear is the first step to success for entrepreneurs. The winners all exemplify that, and the hard work and commitment they have shown underlines what is needed to set up a business.
As a novelist, I mined my history, my family and my memory, but in a very specific way. Writing fiction, I never made use of experiences immediately as they happened. I needed to let things fester in my memory, mature and transmogrify into something meaningful.
Every film for every actor is a make-or-break film. I believe every film has the power to break you or make you. So, an actor will treat every film like his last film. That’s the way we need to work, and that’s the way you can drum up that passion needed to do good work.
Think of Virginia Woolf, ‘A Room of One’s Own’ – that’s what women have always needed under patriarchy and can’t be creative without. They took away my classroom and my status to teach, and now they have taken away my office, and all of it is giving the message that Virginia Woolf and I are losing what I call ‘womenspace.’
I could only try to comfort the women that I came face-to-face with. I was really moved by how much they wanted to talk, how much they needed to be comforted, and how happy they were that we were there.
I do not want medical men to discuss whether or not my work is valuable, because I know what it will do. I want them to tell me how best this new knowledge of rapidly restoring paralysed people to health and strength can be applied where it is needed.
The Almighty, if necessary, may have to shake the nations to humble them and cause them to listen to the servants of the living God. Whatever is needed will come to pass.
I loved music, and in my ninth year at MIT, I decided to buy a hi-fi set. I figured that all I needed to do was look at the specifications. So I bought what looked like the best one, turned it on, and turned it off in five minutes, the sound was so poor.
I guess I wanted to leave America for awhile. It wasn’t that I wanted to become an expatriate, or just never come back, I needed some breathing room. I’d already been translating French poetry, I’d been to Paris once before and liked it very much, and so I just went.
With Frat House, at times I needed to make music that would reflect what these fraternitybrothers might actually listen to, but still keep it within the realm of a score; it still had to lead the viewer through the scene, or just help create the mood.
I wanted to get my coaching badges after retiring, and I asked to take the exam, but they told me I needed to study for four years. I told them they were crazy. Who is going to study for four years? How is someone going to teach me technical things when I know more than they do?
It’s stupid to say that I don’t like being in the public eye, but I don’t like doing stuff that’s not needed.
I signed schoolboy forms for Watford when I was 12, but then my parents got divorced, and I never kicked a ball for three years. I rebelled, I left home, but getting back into football sorted me out. It was the second chance I needed.
As I said a moment ago, there is no higher priority in our budget, or certainly in the budgets of the past few years, than providing for what is needed for the protection and security of our country and support of our troops.
I think it’s very important to send the message that, while parents are needed to remind you to practice and occasionally force you to finish things… they also need to learn to respect you. You as an individual, ultimately, are the captain of where you’re going.
They said you’d really have to be something to be like Babe Ruth. But Babe Ruth was an American player. What we needed was a Puerto Rican player they could say that about, someone to look up to and try to equal.
Computer science teaches and nurtures the type of thinking that 21st century citizens will need to address 21st century issues. We cannot know with any certainty what those challenges will be, but we can arm our students with the tools needed to address them.
When I started studying acting in New York, I didn’t plan to be an action hero. I just wanted to learn acting because I felt it was something I needed to try to do for myself, to express something, my inner pain, or something I couldn’t get out.
I was scared by social media – just scared of what I might attract. Once I broke onto that thing, because I needed it for my band to tell people about shows, I realized, 99 percent of the time, people are funny, clever, inventive, beautiful.
I wanted to study to be a petroleumengineer and get my engineering degree and fight in the UFC at the same time. But unfortunately, to be the best I can be at the UFC, I needed all focus to be there, and more focus, also.
No Congress ever has seen fit to amend the Constitution to address any issue related to marriage. No Constitutional Amendment was needed to ban polygamy or bigamy, nor was a Constitutional Amendment needed to set a uniform age of majority to ban child marriages.
I founded the Me Too Movement because there was a void in the community that I was in. There were gaps in services. There was dearth in resources, and I saw young people – I saw black and brown girls – who are hurting and who needed something that just wasn’t there.
I think this is one of the greatest strengths of this school. Not only do the students go on to achieve great milestones in their own lives, they never forget their roots and the school that gave them the chance they needed to improve their lives and their families’ lives.
When Kenny first came to me, I think he was thinking of making a nice little folk record, but in my opinion, folk music had come to an end and I felt he needed to go to the next step, the next generation.
I used to be one of those students who needed to see something bigger, and God brought people into my life who gave me a bigger vision than the circumstances that surrounded me.
At 15 I auditioned for 42nd Street in Australia. Dein Perry was in that show. I actually got the job but I couldn’t do it because I was only 15. Legally I needed to have another 15-year-old to cover consecutive nights.
I’m obsessed. I’ve always needed to know what’s going on but now it’s a must.
Once I had a better beat, I needed to have an even better one. And somewhere in that climbing, I lost sight of, sort of, my moral and ethical underpinnings.
I’d go down to the end of my street, to a garage that had a certain feeling about it, or a particular light; I’d take a picture of a friend who needed a head shot. That’s how I learned, instead of having school assignments and learning camera techniques.
I was a hostess in a restaurant in New York when I was 21, and I was too good of an employee. I was putting most of my energy into that instead of acting. But my father told my sister and me to look at whatever needed to be done and do that job well, no matter what it was.
The game of basketball has been everything to me. My place of refuge, place I’ve always gone where I needed comfort and peace. It’s been the site of intense pain and the most intense feelings of joy and satisfaction. It’s a relationship that has evolved over time, given me the greatest respect and love for the game.
