You know you’re old when someone compliments you on your alligator shoes, and you’re barefoot.

It’s dangerous to think of yourself as a hero and someone else as a villain. It gets in the way of empathy.
If someone says something hurtful to you or makes you feel down on yourself, then you just gotta stay positive and keep moving forward because they might not know much about you, or they may not understand the situation.
If you have the opportunity to do amazing things in your life, I strongly encourage you to invite someone to join you.

Maybe true love isn’t out there for me, but I can sublimate my loneliness with the notion that true love is out there for someone.
I’ve never looked through a keyhole without finding someone was looking back.
Everywhere I look, someone is telling me, ‘You’re not good enough,’ or, ‘You can’t do this or that.’ You can only hear that so many times before enough is enough.
When you love someone, and you’ve lost that one, then nothing really matters.
No one can lie, no one can hide anything, when he looks directly into someone’s eyes.

Raquel Welch is someone I can also live without. We’ve got some love scenes together and I am dreading them!
There is always a place I can take someone’s curiosity and land where they end up enlightened when we’re done. That’s my challenge as an educator. No one is dumb who is curious. The people who don’t ask questions remain clueless throughout their lives.
I don’t think that every single case of sexual harassment has to result in someone being fired; the consequences should vary. But we need a shift in culture so that every single instance of sexual harassment is investigated and dealt with. That’s just basic common sense.
It’s nice to have a crush on someone. It feels like you’re alive, you know?
A great figure or physique is nice, but it’s self-confidence that makes someone really sexy.
Reading is an exercise in empathy; an exercise in walking in someone else’s shoes for a while.
Be stupid, be dumb, be funny, if that’s who you are. Don’t try to be someone that society wants you to be; that’s stupid. So be yourself.
If one app or news site or friend gets your attention, that means something or someone else loses it. It comes out of our sleep, our time with family or our reflective time with ourselves.
I personally believe that if you love someone, and you get your heart broken, and you can learn to love someone else just as deeply as the first, then that is the greatest lesson we can learn on this planet.
A thug is someone who stands on his own. He lives by the decisions he makes and accepts the consequences. A thug is comfortable in his own skin. I wear mine like a glove.
No matter what you do, people are always going to have something negative to say about it. You could spend your life constantly trying to seek people’s approval and validation, but there is always going to be someone that has something negative to say about what you’re doing.
For any young people looking for job opportunities, good grades and academic results are important, but what is more important may be showing you are someone who has the drive and capability and can fit in the company culture.

People think that it’s ok to degenerate and disrespect someone just because they’re in the public eye.
I like animals, all animals. I wouldn’t hurt a cat or a dog – or a chicken or a cow. And I wouldn’t ask someone else to hurt them for me. That’s why I’m a vegetarian.
If life is a checker game, someone else is moving the pieces. It isn’t us. Don’t be surprised by amazing coincidences. There are no accidents. Consider, as I learned to do, the incredible interconnectedness of all of life.
Monetary success is not success. Career success is not success. Life, someone that loves you, giving to others, doing something that makes you feel complete and full. That is success. And it isn’t dependent on anyone else.
The thing about social media is that someone’s going to hate what you do no matter what you do.
If you don’t know how great this country is, I know someone who does; Russia.
No one really knows what I’m really like, and you won’t unless you spend a day with me, or if you’re my friend. No one ever knows what anyone is really like. Read all the interviews you want on them, it’s just the media talking and you can’t really get to know someone that way, obviously.
I’m not one to take revenge. If someone does something wrong to me I leave it in the hands of the universe to take care of that person.

People often only see one side to someone’s personality, but there are levels.

There’s no better feeling than just going in and just working with someone and what comes out is something that the world knows about.
You want to stop playing ‘Fortnite,’ man, because you aren’t having fun anymore? Good. Go watch someone else. Go play another game.
A man always has to leave his homeland, go to another time zone, another culture, to get a different recognition – to be accepted as someone who’s following a different path, who’s moving into a different mode.
We need to understand the difference between discipline and punishment. Punishment is what you do to someone; discipline is what you do for someone.
To insult someone we call him ‘bestial. For deliberate cruelty and nature, ‘human’ might be the greater insult.
I’m a massive fragrance fan – I think fragrance is part of someone’s hygiene, and I’m a big believer in leaving an impression through scent.
Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.
The difference between a misfortune and a calamity is this: If Gladstone fell into the Thames, it would be a misfortune. But if someone dragged him out again, that would be a calamity.

What comes out when life squeezes you? When someone hurts or offends you? If anger, pain and fear come out of you, it’s because that’s what’s inside.
Just because someone tells you they love you, it doesn’t mean they actually do.
The moment you’ve convinced someone that you truly understand her dreams and feelings, mental and behavioral change becomes possible, and the foundation for a breakthrough has been laid.
I have a different vision of leadership. A leadership is someone who brings people together.

I am not someone who is ashamed of my past. I’m actually really proud. I know I made a lot of mistakes, but they, in turn, were my life lessons.
I would never marry a stupid man. Someone who argues, someone who fights, I cannot stand that.
I was so lucky because what I did in ‘Thor’ was I built the character from the ground up – the foundations of his spirit, really. He was someone who was born with an expectation that he would one day be a king, born with an entitlement.

Faith is much better than belief. Belief is when someone else does the thinking.
In old age we are like a batch of letters that someone has sent. We are no longer in the past, we have arrived.
The good writing of any age has always been the product of someone’s neurosis.
Superstore’ is the most amazing work environment ever. Every single person on set is someone you’d call a friend. We have the best crew, as well, and we all hang out even when we’re not working. We push each other to be better, and we bring it out of one another. I have learned and grown so much.
There is a saying, ‘Eyes are the windows to the soul.’ It means, mostly, people can see through someone else by eye contact in seven seconds.

I do have my own personal convictions and values, and I live by those. But as an artist, as a portrait photographer, my job is to tell the truth and to capture someone’s spirit on a certain day. And it’s never the whole truth; it’s the truth I experience in a very intense and intimate fashion.
Sometimes, magic is just someone spending more time on something than anyone else might reasonably expect.
I’ve always been really curious about things and slightly confused by the world, and I think someone who feels that way is in a good position to be the one asking questions.
Friendship is two-sided. It isn’t a friend just because someone’s doing something nice for you. That’s a nice person. There’s friendship when you do for each other. It’s like marriage – it’s two-sided.
All human beings are inherently good, so when someone goes off the rails, there must be some mitigating factor – he was bullied, was a loner, had an abusive father, or a domineering mother, etc.

When you fall head over heels for someone, you’re not falling in love with who they are as a person; you’re falling in love with your idea of love.
Changing someone else’s life positively changes yours for the better as well.
It’s one thing, holding open the door for someone at a grocery store, or the library, or just about anyplace else. But the doughnut shop is a different thing altogether. This is a get-in-and-out-as-fast-as-you-can operation. There’s no room for courtesy or chivalry here.
We write for the same reason that we walk, talk, climb mountains or swim the oceans – because we can. We have some impulse within us that makes us want to explain ourselves to other human beings. That’s why we paint, that’s why we dare to love someone – because we have the impulse to explain who we are.

I want someone that’s caring, funny, who’s similar to me – who doesn’t take life too seriously – keeps their private life private and is mature!
The pop-star thing bores me because it’s somebody programming someone else. Stand over here, sing that, no, sing it like this, talk like that, when they ask you this, don’t say that, say this, hold that, drive this, stay here, live there – you’re not even a human being. You’re a puppet.
If you can make me laugh, my heart is yours! I think there’s nothing more attractive than someone who doesn’t take themselves too seriously.
Teenagers ultimately don’t mind belonging to a group, because there’s always the opportunity to eventually become someone new. The elderly, by definition, are running out of opportunities for reinvention.

Anytime someone tells me that I can’t do something, I want to do it more.
It’s human nature to blame someone else for your shortcomings or upsets.
Sometimes getting something off your chest to someone else is an important step in coping – so you know that you’re not alone, you’re not failing, and that it is perfectly normal to feel overwhelmed or sad at times. Everybody does.
Sometimes it’s nice of someone to tell you what you smell like.
I know how to learn anything I want to learn. I absolutely know that I could learn how to fly the space shuttle because someone else knows how to fly it, and they put it in a book. Give me the book, and I do not need somebody to stand up in front of the class.
I feel like the world would be a better place if more people experienced a little bit of someone else’s experience.

God never gives someone a gift they are not capable of receiving. If he gives us the gift of Christmas, it is because we all have the ability to understand and receive it.

It’s much easier to get a reception from someone if there is an introduction versus randomly trying to get in front of people.
Never deprive someone of hope; it might be all they have.
