The work of healing is not my work, but by faith, healing is done. The work of deliverance, great and mighty deliverance, is not my work but is my faith in Him. It is not the works of righteousness which I have done, but according to His grace. I am a product of His grace.
I get facials. I get a manicure and pedicure every week. I get my hair cut, and I oil myself down from head to toe. I got that from my brother. I was so impressed with how high maintenance he was. When he left the room, you could still smell him for an hour.

Being young isn’t about age, it’s about being a free spirit. You can meet someone of 20 who’s boring and old, or you can meet someone of 70 who’s youthful and exciting. I met Fred Astaire when he was 72 and I was 21, and I fell in love with him. He certainly was a free spirit.

No one warns young people to follow Adam’s example. He waited till God saw his need. Then God made Adam sleep, prepared for his mate, and brought her to him. We need more of this ‘being asleep‘ in the will of God.
You can lead a man to Congress, but you can’t make him think.
Every human being has a bit of gangster in him.

When I hear a man preach, I like to see him act as if he were fighting bees.

I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.
When I played Robert Howard in ‘The Whole Wide World‘, I was struggling with it. There’s this dual thing where you feel real good about being able to play this juicy part, and then there’s constant shame: ‘Who am I to pretend to know who this guy was? Who am I to represent this guy for people who never knew him?’
A scientist in his laboratory is not a mere technician: he is also a child confronting natural phenomena that impress him as though they were fairy tales.
If there is anything that a man can do well, I say let him do it. Give him a chance.
Bill Gates has always been a mentor and inspiration for me even before I knew him. Just growing up, I admired how Microsoft was mission-focused.
The things that have always been important: to be a good man, to try to live my life the way God would have me, to turn it over to Him that His will might be worked in my life, to do my work without looking back, to give it all I’ve got, and to take pride in my work as an honest performer.
Once you accept the existence of God – however you define him, however you explain your relationship to him – then you are caught forever with his presence in the center of all things.
Silence may be golden, but can you think of a better way to entertain someone than to listen to him?
If T-Bone Walker had been a woman, I would have asked him to marry me. I’d never heard anything like that before: single-string blues played on an electric guitar.
How often it is that the angry man rages denial of what his inner self is telling him.
It’s the most exciting thing to watch God work when I’ve asked him about something, to listen to him and watch him work. It’s like this friendship, and it just grows and grows and grows and grows.
The first thing I do every day when I wake up is thank God for letting me make it through the night and giving me another day of life – just because sometimes I wake up, and I cannot believe I’m doing what I’m doing. I just thank Him. I don’t know how I deserve it, but it’s completely because of Him.
The reason there is no noblesse oblige about Dubya is because he doesn’t admit to himself or anyone else that he owes his entire life to being named George W. Bush. He didn’t just get a head start by being his father’s son – it remained the single most salient fact about him for most of his life.
The best place to find God is in a garden. You can dig for him there.
Die? I should say not, dear fellow. No Barrymore would allow such a conventional thing to happen to him.

The one excellent thing that can be learned from a lion is that whatever a man intends doing should be done by him with a whole-hearted and strenuous effort.

At Cornell University, my professor of European literature, Vladimir Nabokov, changed the way I read and the way I write. Words could paint pictures, I learned from him. Choosing the right word, and the right word order, he illustrated, could make an enormous difference in conveying an image or an idea.
I’m thankful to have Jesus as my Savior. My relationship with God has always been one to where I’m talking to him all day, every day, about anything and everything. It’s just a continuous ongoing conversation that I have with the Lord, and I feel like that’s brought me closer to Him.

If there is a God, atheism must seem to Him as less of an insult than religion.
What a man does defiles him, not what is done by others.
The Holy Spirit can be with you always and guide you back to Him, but in order to enjoy the benefits of this holy gift, you must truly receive it, and then you must use it in your life. How sad it would be to be given such a precious gift and then set it aside and never use it.
When a friend is in trouble, don’t annoy him by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it.
Our life is what our thoughts make it. A man will find that as he alters his thoughts toward things and other people, things and other people will alter towards him.
My dad was a Marine. He was one of the Montford Point Marines. Those are the equivalent of the Tuskegee Airmen for Marines. He’s a tough, tough guy. When I was 15 we had a fight, and I didn’t speak to him for 10 years.
Every religion is good that teaches man to be good; and I know of none that instructs him to be bad.

Unless a man believes in himself and makes a total commitment to his career and puts everything he has into it – his mind, his body, his heart – what’s life worth to him?
It’s only when you grow up, and step back from him, or leave him for your own career and your own home – it’s only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it. Pride reinforces love.
They say Elvis is dead. I say, no, you’re looking at him. Elvis isn’t dead; he just changed color.
My idol is Emile Zola. He was a man of the left, so people expected of him a kind of ‘Les Miserables,’ in which the underdogs are always noble people. But he went out, and found a lot of ambitious, drunk, slothful and mean people out there. Zola simply could not – and was not interested in – telling a lie.
I have faith in faith. God is there, whether we have faith or not, so why not have faith in him?

Kevin Systrom of Instagram used to work for us as a consultant in the early days of Mint. I knew him a long time ago. Maybe I could have gotten in there. But with photo sharing, I don’t know if there’s an obvious business model. I don’t think there’s a competitive, sustainable advantage.

The surest way to make a monkey of a man is to quote him.
I just want to be there for my husband. I don’t ever want him to think that he’s not getting everything at home – love, attention, encouragement, a meal. I just want him to feel the best he feels at home. I think that’s what a good wife is. Someone who is very attentive to her husband.

Man was created to praise, reverence, and serve God our Lord and in this way to save his soul. The other things on Earth were created for man’s use, to help him reach the end for which he was created.

If a donkey bray at you, don’t bray at him.
If I’m sure of a person and his potential in politics, and if I know he will live up to his promises, I wouldn’t mind campaigning for him. I believe in the dictum, ‘never say never.’ You never know, I might end up joining politics.

The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.
I think that is a better thing than thanksgiving: thanks-living. How is this to be done? By a general cheerfulness of manner, by an obedience to the command of Him by whose mercy we live, by a perpetual, constant delighting of ourselves in the Lord, and by a submission of our desires to His will.
If a lion could talk, we could not understand him.
