You may call God love, you may call God goodness. But the best name for God is compassion.
What we call wisdom is the result of all the wisdom of past ages. Our best institutions are like young trees growing upon the roots of the old trunks that have crumbled away.
Henry Ward Beecher

When people call me God, I say, no, I'm still an angel or saint of acting. I still have a long way to go.
Everywhere I go, the kids call me 'the book lady.' The older I get, the more appreciative I seem to be of the 'book lady' title. It makes me feel more like a legitimate person, not just a singer or an entertainer. But it makes me feel like I've done something good with my life and with my success.
Turkeys know their names, come when you call, and are totally affectionate. They're better than teenagers.

J. C. Watts

What other people call dark and despairing, I call funny.
A vision of truth which does not call upon us to get out of our armchair - why, this is the desideratum of mankind.
John Jay Chapman
It's about taking advantage of the opportunities you have right now, and right now we're in a position where you call somebody and they're willing to pick up and take the call because they're a fan, you have to take advantage of that and have a chance to capitalize on your ideas.

I've always really just liked football, and I've always devoted a lot of time to it. When I was a kid, my friends would call me to go out with them, but I would stay home because I had practice the next day. I like going out, but you have to know when you can and when you can't.

I love my Force Fins, which are the kind of fins Special Forces use and really are adapted from the fins of fish. They're very efficient. They are so beautiful, a pair is in the Museum of Modern Art. The set I have are ruby red. I call them my ruby flippers.
I won't call my work entertainment. It's exploring. It's asking questions of people, constantly. 'How much do you feel? How much do you know? Are you aware of this? Can you cope with this?' A good movie will ask you questions you don't already know the answers to. Why would I want to make a film about something I already understand?
I'd rather spend my leisure time doing what some people call my work and I call my fun.
Our milk chocolate is very chocolaty. In fact, we don't call it milk chocolate - we call it milky chocolate.

C. S. Lewis
