At the outset of the creation of the euro in 1999, it was expected that the southern eurozone economies would behave like those in the north; the Italians would behave like Germans. They didn't.

I seem to keep returning to my father in poems because his personality was so extreme, so driven. He did everything to excess.
Clearly, America's dysfunctional food culture must bear some of the blame for our excess pounds, but it's likely our walking-averse lifestyles contribute as well.
Television's escapist programming naturally continues to endorse living beyond one's means as the time-tested American Way and rarely depicts families or individuals wracked by the pressures and miseries that come with excess.

My theory is that balance is key - nothing in excess.
It is more rewarding to be complicit with scarcity than excess.

If you are in support of in vitro fertilization, then you have to recognize that human embryos are being created in excess of what can be used safely to reimplant for a pregnancy. So they're going to end up being discarded.
There must be an alternative between Hollywood and New York, between those two places psychically as well as geographically.

An artist has to go to every extreme, to stretch his sensibility through excess and suffering in order to feel and to communicate more.
Bubbles are best identified by credit excesses, not valuation excesses. And there's no bigger credit excess than in China.
The biggest thing for me with charity is awareness. Obviously as an athlete, I have an opportunity to make people more aware.

I'm a fan of Oliver Stone. I like his movies, I like his excess, and I think he has a great capacity for empathy and it comes out more powerfully in this movie than in any of his other films, even the formal 'I'm identifying with the underdog' movies like 'Born on the Fourth of July.'
I sort of leave the character at the end of the day. I don't carry anything around with me - no excess baggage or unnecessary thoughts. I think it's too exhausting to do that. To put things into perspective - your work is your work, and your leisure time is something else.
