The lunar flights give you a correct perception of our existence. You look back at Earth from the moon, and you can put your thumb up to the window and hide the Earth behind your thumb. Everything you've ever known is behind your thumb, and that blue-and-white ball is orbiting a rather normal star, tucked away on the outer edge of a galaxy.
I may not have proved a great explorer, but we have done the greatest march ever made and come very near to great success.
Robert Falcon Scott
I'm not going to say I'm not a fan, but I'm a fan of house music, essentially, and kind of indie, and I was always into the kind of sub-pop Seattle Mud Honey and Pearl Jam kind of sound. But my kind of big love was house music ever since I was 15/16, going to raves when I was 15 or 16 years old and not going to school, like a naughty boy.
I don't know what my calling is, but I want to be here for a bigger reason. I strive to be like the greatest people who have ever lived.
Everyone who's ever taken a shower has an idea. It's the person who gets out of the shower, dries off and does something about it who makes a difference.
I've always traveled with a picture of my daughter from 1989, her kindergarten school picture, that has 'I love you, Daddy' written on it. She's always made fun of me because I never changed that picture out. It's like my resistance to her getting older. It was the first thing she'd ever written to me and it means the world to me.
I have loved movies as the number one thing in my life so long that I can't ever remember a time when I didn't.
I've only had two rules: Do all you can and do it the best you can. It's the only way you ever get that feeling of accomplishing something.
My own saying is: 'Create the hype, but don't ever believe it.'
The true treasure lies within. It is the underlying theme of the songs we sing, the shows we watch and the books we read. It is woven into the Psalms of the Bible, the ballads of the Beatles and practically every Bollywood film ever made. What is that treasure? Love. Love is the nature of the Divine.
There is one consolation in being sick; and that is the possibility that you may recover to a better state than you were ever in before.
Henry David Thoreau
Americans play to win at all times. I wouldn't give a hoot and hell for a man who lost and laughed. That's why Americans have never lost nor ever lose a war.
George S. Patton
I've never been a very prolific person, so when creativity flows, it flows. I find myself scribbling on little notepads and pieces of loose paper, which results in a very small portion of my writings to ever show up in true form.
Don't show off every day, or you'll stop surprising people. There must always be some novelty left over. The person who displays a little more of it each day keeps up expectations, and no one ever discovers the limits of his talent.
Have you ever heard the expression: Walk a mile in my shoes, and then judge me? And write your own books.
No one ever said that fighting the war against terrorism and defending our homeland would be easy. So let's support our troops, law enforcement workers, and our mission to keep our nation and our children safe in the days and years to come.
The monster was the best friend I ever had.
American history is longer, larger, more various, more beautiful, and more terrible than anything anyone has ever said about it.
James A. Baldwin
Why should I care about posterity? What's posterity ever done for me?
Getting married, for me, was the best thing I ever did. I was suddenly beset with an immense sense of release, that we have something more important than our separate selves, and that is the marriage. There's immense happiness that can come from working towards that.
You see a lot of smart guys with dumb women, but you hardly ever see a smart woman with a dumb guy.
Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed.
All theory, dear friend, is gray, but the golden tree of life springs ever green.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Nothing ever becomes real till it is experienced.
Life is far too important a thing ever to talk seriously about.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
