My friends are the ones I’ve had since primary school. They’re really cool and such a good bunch of people. They came to every one of my gigs before all of this happened, you know; they were there in the smoky pubs, wherever.
When I was really little I would sit in the back of my dad’s car when he’d be playing old-school music. He’d turn down the music and turn around and I’d be singing and know all of the words but I didn’t even know how to talk. From then on I’ve always wanted to be a singer.
I was the only one at stage school who wasn’t white.
Clark Kent grew not only out of my private life, but also out of Joe Shuster’s. As a high school student, I thought that someday I might become a reporter, and I had crushes on several attractive girls who either didn’t know I existed or didn’t care I existed.
In fact, if they didn’t let me commute, I would not have taken the role because I wanted to graduate high school with my classmates. I remember my agent’s jaw dropping when I told him if I couldn’t commute I didn’t want the role.
It has been my pleasure to speak at many Federalist Society gatherings around the country, and I think one thing your organization has definitely done is to contribute to free speech, free debate, and most importantly public understanding of, awareness of, and appreciation of the Constitution. So that’s a marvelous contribution, and in a way I must say I’m jealous at how the Federalist Society has thrived at law schools.
In any moment, I guess we could whip out a guitar and start playing old school.
Nowadays, with history not being taught anymore in American public schools, self-esteem is taking its place.
At some point you cannot be the kid in the glass bubble in this world. You might’ve heard throughout your grade school and high school years that it was a safe, nice, warm, fair, feeling place… but it can get brutal when it gets competitive. Especially when you succeed. Watch the detractors come out of the walls at that point.
America may be the best country in the world, but that’s kind of like being the valedictorian of summer school.
I have some memories of certain things that happened in high school when I was stoned out of my mind, but I talked with other people about them, and I trusted the aggregated memories.

I do like men and I had, you know, a guy in high school that I wanted to marry desperately. He’s the mayor of some small town in Texas. I could be the mayor’s wife right now.

I worked in the mail room at CAA when I was in high school. I worked in the literary department, too. That was my after school job, believe it or not: I would read manuscripts and then evaluations on whether or not I thought they’d make good movies. Which was fascinating and kind of hilarious to me at the time.
This Sunday School has been of help to me, greater perhaps than any other force in my Christian life, and I can ask no better things for you than that you, and all that shall come after you in this great band of workers for Christ, shall receive the same measure of blessedness which I have been permitted to have.
In school, I studied psychology, linguistics, neuroscience. I understand that there is a real lack of respect for the brain.

I read recently that all of us can be defined in adult life by the way others perceived us in high school. I know [people] who had the popular, good-looking path in high school; they tend not to do so well. It was a little bit too easy for them, where for those of us who struggled in every sense, perhaps our determination and self-reliance and discipline were reinforced by that.
I don’t know if this is advice, but I remember this guy in high school who came off like he’d been with a lot of women. He said, "Dude, what girls sometimes like is the unexpected." There were these girls who were always giving him tittie twisters, and he kept warning them, "I’m going to do it back." I’m thinking, There’s no way. But sure enough, one girl crossed the line and he did.
I’ve always written. When I was in school, the only teacher who ever liked me was my creative writing teacher. I used to enter poetry competitions, and I don’t think I ever lost one. So I had the idea for a while of being some kind of poet.
Id never heard of a hall pass until I came to America. It sounds like something at school.
I’m rather kind of old school, thinking that when an artist does his work it’s no longer his.
I went to a middle-class school, but my background is working class. I got the best of both worlds, I saw both classes, so I have a pretty fair idea of how people live and why they do it.
1961 was when I was really into clothes. I left school at 15 and started copying a bloke who used to go up on the train to London with me; Leslie, I think his name was. He was like, top mod of his own area. He wore Italian jackets with white linen jeans. Boy, was that cool! I mean, that’s in style now – it’s very much the L.A. look. But he was wearing it then, and it looked supercool.
I haven’t changed my views much since I was about 12, really, I’ve just got a 12-year-old mentality.When I was in school I had a brother who was into Kerouac and he gave me On The Road to read when I was 12 years old. That’s still been a big influence.
