Crime is a very hard genre to feminise. If you have a female protagonist she is going to be looking after her mum when she gets older; she is going to be worried about her brother and sister; she will be making a living while bringing up kids.
Sometimes one pays most for the things one gets for nothing.
In my opinion, the only way to conquer stage fright is to get up on stage and play. Every time you play another show, it gets better and better.
Music begins to atrophy when it departs too far from the dance... poetry begins to atrophy when it gets too far from music.
One tradition I have with my friends is that when one of us gets married, we have a ton of fragrance oils and pretty bottles at the bachelorette party. Everyone puts a drop or two in a bottle for the bride and makes a wish, and the bride wears our creation on her wedding day.
No family gets rich from earning the minimum wage. In fact, the current minimum wage does not even lift a family out of poverty.
Life is hard and it gets worse and worse and worse.
Music drives you. It wakes you up, it gets you pumping. And, at the end of the day, the correct tune will chill you down.
Debt is a trap, especially student debt, which is enormous, far larger than credit card debt. It's a trap for the rest of your life because the laws are designed so that you can't get out of it. If a business, say, gets in too much debt, it can declare bankruptcy, but individuals can almost never be relieved of student debt through bankruptcy.
I think if someone gets kicked in the face it is their fault - they watched the foot come towards their face.
Much of the time, the things we feel guilty about are not our issues. Another person behaves inappropriately or in some way violates our boundaries. We challenge the behavior, and the person gets angry and defensive. Then we feel guilty.
Baseball is like driving, it's the one who gets home safely that counts.
If you're always strict with yourself, life gets miserable. And we're supposed to enjoy life.
When the fishbowl gets too small, it's time to pack up and leave and jump into the lake or ocean.
The early bird may get the worm, but its the second mouse that gets the cheese.
I love eating it - grilled chicken, pasta, rice, and other foods that give me long term energy. Every once in a while, my sweet tooth gets the best of me and I have to snack on some candy. Beverage wise, I stick to sports drinks, water, milk, and juice.
Who gets the risks? The risks are given to the consumer, the unsuspecting consumer and the poor work force. And who gets the benefits? The benefits are only for the corporations, for the money makers.
Sometimes the weekend gets hijacked by work, but as my mother would say, this is the right problem.
Pride slays thanksgiving, but a humble mind is the soil out of which thanks naturally grow. A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.
Henry Ward Beecher
The key to life when it gets tough is to keep moving. Just keep moving.
I believe that anybody who gets married should go to a counselor for months before the wedding. I think that's going to save guys a lot of money and the ladies a lot of heartbreak.
Healthcare should be between the doctor and the patient. And if the doctor says something needs to be done, the government should guarantee it gets paid for.
I gotta be honest with you. I'm kind of jealous of the way my dad gets to talk to my mom sometimes. Where are all those old-school women you can just take your day out on? When did they stop making those angels?

The tongue is the only tool that gets sharper with use.
John F. Kennedy
