There is only one real sin and that is to persuade oneself that the second best is anything but second best.
For me, growing up in a ridiculously poor family living in dead-end neighborhoods, Superman was a deeply personal icon, one that said you can do anything if you put your mind to it. What he stood for formed the core of who I wanted to be as I grew up, and informed how I view the world and my responsibilities to other people.
J. Michael Straczynski
Obsolescence never meant the end of anything, it's just the beginning.
Meetings are a great trap. Soon you find yourself trying to get agreement and then the people who disagree come to think they have a right to be persuaded. However, they are indispensable when you don't want to do anything.
John Kenneth Galbraith
I'm opinionated, but I'm not a vindictive person and I never say anything unprovoked, either.
I've always been the kind of person who, if there's anything that can kill me, I want to know something about it.
You never have to change anything you got up in the middle of the night to write.
The fact of the matter is, you don't give up what's natural. Anything I've fantasized about, I've done.
I didn't watch much TV as a kid and I don' t watch it now. I don' t find anything beautiful or unique to the medium, and the only thing you can do on TV that you can't do in film is make a continuing story - which is so cool!
I go and see anything that's visually new, any technology that's about picture-making. The technology won't make the pictures different, but someone using it will.
No god ever gave any man anything, nor ever answered any prayer at any time - nor ever will.
Madalyn Murray O'Hair
If money titles meant anything, I'd play more tournaments. The only thing that means a lot to me is winning. If I have more wins than anybody else and win more majors than anybody else in the same year, then it's been a good year.
I grew up not really having anything, so the idea that I can take care of my family and my friends now is a really cool bonus.
What I had to prove was that I had a dedication and a desire and a passion to do the work and everything else would fall in place because I have a vision that I want to portray and it did and I do it. I don't sell anything.
It was either Voltaire or Charlie Sheen who said, 'We are born alone. We live alone. We die alone. And anything in between that can give us the illusion that we're not, we cling to.'
If you train people properly, they won't be able to tell a drill from the real thing. If anything, the real thing will be easier.
Repeating is harder than anything else.
I don't do anything in order to cause trouble. It just so happens that what I do naturally causes trouble. I'm proud to be a troublemaker.
I remember hearing Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, Big Bill Broonzy, Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley and not really knowing anything about the geography or the culture of the music. But for some reason it did something to me - it resonated.
My mother never made me do anything for my brothers, like serve them. I think that's an important lesson, especially for the Latino culture, because the women are expected to be the ones that serve and cook and whatever. Not in our family. Everybody was equal.
I don't want to do anything that I'm not passionate about.
If a guy is skilled at anything, that's attractive. There's something very primal about that and, sure, it can be as simple as figuring out the tip quickly. It's really cool when a guy tips 20 percent quickly and effortlessly so that when the check comes, he opens it and signs his name and done.
When one loves somebody everything is clear - where to go, what to do - it all takes care of itself and one doesn't have to ask anybody about anything.
Accounting was the course that helped me more than anything.
I don't think we're yet evolved to the point where we're clever enough to handle a complex a situation as climate change. The inertia of humans is so huge that you can't really do anything meaningful.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
