Greed has been with human beings forever. We have a number of things in our species that you would call 'the dark side,' and greed is one of them. If you don't put certain structures in place or restrictions on those parts of our being that come from that dark place, then it gets out of control.
I think self-discipline is something, it's like a muscle. The more you exercise it, the stronger it gets.
There is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in.
The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win.
I'm for whatever gets you through the night.
Life is hard and it gets worse and worse and worse.
I think if someone gets kicked in the face it is their fault - they watched the foot come towards their face.
When a man becomes a Christian, he becomes industrious, trustworthy and prosperous. Now, if that man, when he gets all he can and saves all he can, does not give all he can, I have more hope for Judas Iscariot than for that man!
Every society gets the kind of criminal it deserves. What is equally true is that every community gets the kind of law enforcement it insists on.
Motherhood has a very humanizing effect. Everything gets reduced to essentials.
I know that campaigns can seem small, and even silly. Trivial things become big distractions. Serious issues become sound bites. And the truth gets buried under an avalanche of money and advertising. If you're sick of hearing me approve this message, believe me - so am I.
If baking is any labor at all, it's a labor of love. A love that gets passed from generation to generation.
I'm a person who gets better with practice. Getting older is awesome - because you get more practice.
Law and order are the medicine of the body politic and when the body politic gets sick, medicine must be administered.
B. R. Ambedkar
Every religion is true one way or another. It is true when understood metaphorically. But when it gets stuck in its own metaphors, interpreting them as facts, then you are in trouble.
As a housewife, I feel that if the kids are still alive when my husband gets home from work, then hey, I've done my job.
I'm not the type of person to give up just because something gets rough. That's a coward. That's not me.
It's usually my mom who gets on me about my facial hair. I can't grow a good mustache, so I guess it's just a neck beard. I just have trouble growing up there.
The key to life when it gets tough is to keep moving. Just keep moving.
I don't want any title. I just say what I say, and hopefully somebody gets it, man. I'm not perfect, and I'm just here and trying to make a dollar, and being real at the same time, you know?
The news media are, for the most part, the bringers of bad news... and it's not entirely the media's fault, bad news gets higher ratings and sells more papers than good news.
I see what happens when one gets very attached to material things. That's just not what my life is.
I never decide if an idea is good or bad until I try it. So much of what gets in the way of things being good is thinking that we know. And the more that we can remove any baggage we're carrying with us, and just be in the moment, use our ears, and pay attention to what's happening, and just listen to the inner voice that directs us, the better.
It just seems to me that the world's kind of a mess, and the more messy it gets, the more interested I am in escapist fare. Having a good time is something that isn't about the war in Iraq or the Asian flu or the Kyoto protocol - things that are horribly depressing to consider in our real lives. I'm eager to get away from them.
Nobody gets justice. People only get good luck or bad luck.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
John F. Kennedy
