Francis Ford Coppola
I used to love fine dining, but I lost my appetite for it to a degree because sometimes it is too much about the effort and too little about the result.
How individuals of the same species surpass each other in these sensations and in other bodily faculties is universally known, but there is a limit to them, and their power cannot extend to every distance or to every degree.
Shyness is inherently uncomfortable; introversion is not. The traits do overlap, though psychologists debate to what degree.
I can say with a solid degree of authority that I am a selfish person. I spontaneously forget the names of more people than not, unless I want to make out with them.

A degree of lying - you know, white lies - seems to be inherent in all languages and all forms of communication.
A lot of people don't know what I do. In the industry they take credit for work because to some degree it makes them feel worthy or greater.
