I’m thinking about learning a few new things – like taking classical guitar lessons – and I’d like to bring what I learn into hard rock.
Friends often think it must be fun to be a painter… When it’s going well, it’s far more profound than mere fun; when it’s not, it’s not fun at all. In either event, painting is always deeply fulfilling.
If I have another child, I doubt I’ll get married again. I don’t think men particularly want to be with me.
A ghost would crawl up my leg and have sex with me at an apartment a long time ago in Texas. I used to think it was my boyfriend, and one day I woke up and it wasn’t. I was freaked out about it, but then I was, like, ‘Well, you know what? He’s never hurt me and he just gave me some amazing sex, so I have no problem.
For some reason, people think I am this terrible person and it really hurts me to hear that. I am just doing the best I know how to.
I finally feel like I’m becoming somebody. I really think like I can do something. I just know I’m going to be an actress. I want it so bad.
The man whose nature is such that by one path alone his chief desire will reach consummation will try to find it on that path, whatever it may be, and whatever the world thinks of it; and if he does not, he is contemptible.
Up to a certain point every man is what he thinks he is.
Thinking is trying to think the unthinkable: thinking the thinkable is not worth the effort.
But have you ever overheard two women discussing men? Men are crude liars, comparing their drabs, but women – I’d rather have [an] anatomist dissect me alive than to listen to the things the ladies say about us when they think they are alone.
I think 99 percent of women’s lib comes from technology making different kinds of lives possible, and then the social adjustment follows the technology – it doesn’t precede it.
This is important! But you have to stay absolutely cool. I may be completely off-base, and panicking prematurely." "I don’t think so. I think you’re panicking post-maturely. In fact, if you were panicking any later it would be practically posthumously. I’ve been panicking for days.
Never underestimate the human capacity for wishful thinking and willful blindness,’ said Miles. Such as a whole society of people who became so wrapped up in avoiding death, they forgot to be alive?
I do think, half of what we call madness is just some poor slob dealing with pain by a strategy that annoys the people around him.
Escapist literature gets a bad rap. But I think escape is important for a lot of people in a lot of places.
I’m an intellectual Thatcherite, just as I was an intellectual Powellite, and I think it important that the Conservative party should be in good hands and that it should win elections.
I’ve read The Satanic Verses and I thought it a nasty, sneering, free-thinking book… I can understand why the book is offensive and it didn’t seem to me to be anything but offensive when I read it.
Evil, and evil spirits, devils and devil possession, are the outgrowth of man’s inadequate consciousness of God. We must avoid thinking of evil as a thing in itself-a force that works against man or, against God, if you will.
Prosperity is not just having things. It is the consciousness that attracts the things. Prosperity is a way of living and thinking, and not just having money or things. Poverty is a way of living and thinking, and not just a lack of money or things.
I am not what I think. I am thinking what I think.
Prosperity is a way of living and thinking, and not just money or things.
We don’t change what we are, we change what we think what we are.
I was fighting for tennis, I was an evangelist for tennis, and it was literally just passion that kept pushing and pushing, and the amount of times that the word "no" was said to me was beyond logic. I think in life I’ve always been the guy who, if popular opinion is one thing, if common sense is one thing, I’ll go the other way.
Outside of a Grand Slam, I don’t think there’s a tournament in the world that has this many top players representing their countries. It’s really remarkable that we have this many No. 1’s. And with so many countries being represented, it’s going to give the fans from Las Vegas who are from those countries a chance to come out and root for their countrymen.
I don’t think there is a particular responsibility on designers that is not on other professions… I think there’s a responsibility for all of us to engage on all levels.
I think it’s ultimately inhuman to only see things for their functionality. We want things to be more than that. The desire for beauty is something that’s in us, and it’s not trivial.

What’s great is we actually have friends who belong or have previously belonged to the Amish community, so we got first hand stories and I was able to talk with them about visitors and visiting the Amish country. It was very enlightening to think this is very much going on as we speak. What was really interesting was that the upcoming Amish generation is actually closer to average American teenager in their use of the English language because of the use of technology.
I think that the success of the franchise is helpful for launching different aspects of my career. It’s sort of the reliable cousin that you can always count on for every family reunion. Because of ‘Step Up’ I’ve been able to really take my career to the next level. I have them to thank for a lot of my success.
