Gay people got a right to be as miserable as everybody else.
I mean I think that when you've got a big brain, when you find yourself planted in a world with a brain big enough to understand quite a lot of what you see around you, but not everything, you naturally fall to thinking about the deep mysteries. Where do we come from? Where does the world come from? Where does the universe come from?
Failure is a great teacher, and I think when you make mistakes and you recover from them and you treat them as valuable learning experiences, then you've got something to share.
Most new jobs won't come from our biggest employers. They will come from our smallest. We've got to do everything we can to make entrepreneurial dreams a reality.
I've been a long time coming, and I'll be a long time gone. You've got your whole life to do something, and that's not very long.
I am a leader. Leaders always get heat. They're always going against the grain. Jimi Hendrix got heat; Bob Marley got heat; Miles Davis got heat. Every great artist got heat. Heat means you're doing something right.
I was striving to be the most muscular man, and it got me into the movies. It got me everything that I have.
You can't just sit there and wait for people to give you that golden dream. You've got to get out there and make it happen for yourself.
Let me explain something about guitar playing. Everyone's got their own character, and that's the thing that's amazed me about guitar playing since the day I first picked it up. Everyone's approach to what can come out of six strings is different from another person, but it's all valid.
You've got the sun, you've got the moon, and you've got the Rolling Stones.
Any active sportsman has to be very focused; you've got to be in the right frame of mind. If your energy is diverted in various directions, you do not achieve the results. I need to know when to switch on and switch off: and the rest of the things happen around that. Cricket is in the foreground, the rest is in the background.
Everything's got a moral, if only you can find it.
If you haven't got anything nice to say about anybody, come sit next to me.
Alice Roosevelt Longworth
Every day I've got to be thankful that I am alive, and you never know - the cliche is, I guess, you could get hit by a bus tomorrow, so you'd better be at peace with whatever you got going at the moment.
Grace is available for each of us every day - our spiritual daily bread - but we've got to remember to ask for it with a grateful heart and not worry about whether there will be enough for tomorrow.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
Just got back from a pleasure trip: I took my mother-in-law to the airport.
Oh, don't let's ask for the moon. We've already got the stars.

David Herbert Lawrence
Being an optimist after you've got everything you want doesn't count.
In baseball, you can't kill the clock. You've got to give the other man his chance. That's why this is the greatest game.
I got a feeling about political correctness. I hate it. It causes us to lie silently instead of saying what we think.
I will not retire while I've still got my legs and my make-up box.
Number one, like yourself. Number two, you have to eat healthy. And number three, you've got to squeeze your buns. That's my formula.
As soon as I got out there I felt a strange relationship with the pitcher's mound. It was as if I'd been born out there. Pitching just felt like the most natural thing in the world. Striking out batters was easy.
As a real person, he wouldn't last a minute, would he? But drama is about imperfection. And we've moved away from the aspirational hero. We got tired of it, it was dull. If I was House's friend, I would hate it. How he so resolutely refuses to be happy or take the kind-hearted road. But we don't always like morally good people, do we?
There are days when it takes all you've got just to keep up with the losers.
