Since our society equates happiness with youth, we often assume that sorrow, quiet desperation, and hopelessness go hand in hand with getting older. They don't. Emotional pain or numbness are symptoms of living the wrong life, not a long life.
Life has been kind to me. I am happy with the love and appreciation that I have been getting throughout my career. I feel blessed.
I realize that I live on the bubble of insanity. I feel the weight of human suffering, loneliness and despair on me all the time. It's not getting easier; if anything, it's always right on the edge of my skin.
I think the whole world is dying to hear someone say, 'I love you.' I think that if I can leave the legacy of love and passion in the world, then I think I've done my job in a world that's getting colder and colder by the day.
There's nothing as exciting as a comeback - seeing someone with dreams, watching them fail, and then getting a second chance.
The biggest way I stay motivated is to run with a group of friends. Sometimes it's hard to get going by yourself, but if you have a plan and a meeting time, you know this run will happen for sure. It's a way to have fun - while also getting in a workout. Plus it distracts from pain, helps you fight fatigue, and gives you that extra push.
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.
My wife's jealousy is getting ridiculous. The other day she looked at my calendar and wanted to know who May was.
There's a big difference between falling in love with someone and falling in love with someone and getting married. Usually, after you get married, you fall in love with the person even more.
Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
You know you're getting old when you get that one candle on the cake. It's like, 'See if you can blow this out.'
In ninth grade, I came up with a new form of rebellion. I hadn't been getting good grades, but I decided to get all A's without taking a book home. I didn't go to math class, because I knew enough and had read ahead, and I placed within the top 10 people in the nation on an aptitude exam.
When you are not practicing, someone else is getting better.
Getting organized in the normal routines of life and finishing little projects you've started is an important first step toward realizing larger goals. If you can't get a handle on the small things, how will you ever get it together to focus on the big things?
No nice men are good at getting taxis.
I used to be really cute. I could send you earlier photos where I'm stunning. But I've gained about twenty pounds over the past two years, and the more weight I've put on, the more success I've had. If you drew a diagram of weight gain and me getting more work, a mathematician would draw some conclusions from that.
Success is falling nine times and getting up ten.
Jon Bon Jovi
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
I struggled with being a broke college graduate, and while all my friends were getting career jobs, I was working horrible part-time jobs. That's why now, even when I get tired, I think, 'This is what I asked for.'
Finding good players is easy. Getting them to play as a team is another story.
It would be fun to do a reunion show. I hope we do it some day, but it better be soon. We're all getting on.
Two things scare me. The first is getting hurt. But that's not nearly as scary as the second, which is losing.
Getting stress out of your life takes more than prayer alone. You must take action to make changes and stop doing whatever is causing the stress. You can learn to calm down in the way you handle things.
Right is right, and wrong is wrong, and when people start getting it confused, that means they need to sit down with some real people.
Life experience is what defines our character, even if it means getting your heart broken or being lied to. You know, you need the downs to appreciate the ups. Going on the adventure or taking that risk is important.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
John F. Kennedy
