I like to aim for significance over success because rarely can you be significant and also successful, but many people can be successful and not significant.
You can’t make everyone happy no matter what. All I can do is live my life and try to be successful and please myself. I have my own morals I live by. Bill Cosby once said, ‘I don’t know the key to success but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.’ I agree with that. I live my life my way. I try to do the right thing, but I know there are going to be people who aren’t happy with what I do or say no matter what, so I’m not going to worry about it.
There is absolutely no greater high than challenging the power structure as a nobody, giving it your all, and winning. I think I’ve learned that lesson twice now.

It’s about a singer who first sneered about my allegedly not authentic style but later she stole and copied it. And now she’s acting like I am the art project and she the true super artist. My God and people actually believe her, she’s successful! I shouldn’t continue ranting, it doesn’t get anywhere.
I was never successful in a noteworthy way, no one wrote about me, and I didn’t have recognition. I’ve met a lot of musicians along the way who thought I was good, and they knew that was important to me. Having a simple career as a musician who liked music was good enough for me.
I sort of do what I say and say what I do which I’m happy with because it makes my life real easy. When I was younger, people would say that I was inspired by David Lynch, so I went and watched his stuff and I was surprised. I thought it was smart, with what I was trying to do lyrically. So I started watching some of his stuff. I’ve never seen his movies in [their] entirety, I’m more interested in him as a person and how he came to be successful taking an alternative route, sort of a subculture icon.
Football used to be my god but no longer is. I still love it, I’m still aggressive, I still want to be very successful at it, I want to win a lot of football games. And my job is to be the best football player in the world, because it affords me a life; it pays, it’s my job, and so it hasn’t dulled my senses for the game or the love or the great excitement I get from the game. It’s just that I’m very much at peace with myself because of my faith.
It’s fine to have talent, but talent is the last of it. In an acting career, as in an acting performance, you’ve got to have vitality. The secret of successful acting is identical with a woman’s beauty secret: joy in living.
To be honest, I’ve made a game out of trying to live through my James Dean, Janis Joplin, Freddie Prinze, Jim Morrison period, those demons that we all have that we’re either successful or not at making work for us rather than destroy us.
The most successful people do not make up the rules as they go. They have a set of rules that they follow and they stick to them.

Instead of controlling the environment for the benefit of the population, perhaps it’s time we controlled the population to allow the survival of the environment.

Every Christian family ought to be as it were a little church, consecrated to Christ, and wholly influenced and governed by his rules. And family education and order are some of the chief means of grace. If these fail, all other means are likely to prove ineffectual. If these are duly maintained, all the means of grace will be likely to prosper and be successful.
As I said to Ringo, I was in a successful Rock N Roll band. He was in a band that changed the world. That’s the difference.
I think it’s part of being English, particularly if you are middle-class – you’re always looking to be reminded that you are no good and you are always actually embarrassed about being successful.
It’s difficult when you’re successful, to admit that you need help.
Smart writers never understand why their satires on our town are never successful. What they refuse to accept is that you can’t satirize a satire.
The only thing I really recommend, if you’re starting out in stand-up is to not try to copy anybody else. You can be influenced by people. I was influenced by Steve Martin and Bob Newhart and Woody Allen, but I never tried to be someone else. I always tried to be myself. And the reason people are successful is they’re unique.

You have to set a standard for yourself that’s.very, very, very high and you have to manage your thoughts to where they need to be allow yourself to be successful, at what your trying to do.
A successful tree pose probably won’t change your life. Learning how to keep your breath easy, long, and deep no matter what the circumstance? That absolutely will.
Am I Machiavellian? I don’t think I’m quite the mastermind people would have me be. Everything I do tends to be very successful and it may have something to do with the fact that I’m very good, not necessarily that I manipulate. But that doesn’t often occur to people.
a successful politician does not have convictions; he has emotions.
I have been accused of being a joker. But the most successful art to me involves humor.
