No matter where you go or what you do, you live your entire life within the confines of your head.
My parents never condescended to me. As a child, I always sat at the head of our dinner table. I was always given a lot of responsibility.
My mom and dad got divorced when I was very young, and growing up in a family where the head of the household wasn't a man made a big difference.
I am sensible of the velocity of the moments, and entering that part of my head alert to the motion of the world I am aware that life was never perfect, never absolute. This bestows contentment, even a fearlessness.
I don't want to force anything on anyone. I'm not trying to bust you over the head and make you buy this record or this song or whatever. I'm presenting it to you so you can take it in. You know, it's like trying to force a kid to eat broccoli. If I present it as trees that make your muscles grow, my son is like, 'I'm down with getting muscles.'
I really want to play Princess Leia. Stick some big pastries on my head. Now that would be interesting.
Women need to attack those negative voices they have in their head.
Jada Pinkett Smith
There's the tradition in jazz of having the Battle of the Bands, and you do not want to get your head cut when you're playing.

Something will pop up in my head. It could be like the weirdest thing. Like all'a sudden like I have like a jumping banana in my head.

I was hired as a sous-chef at a restaurant on the Upper East Side. The chef liked to drink - some mornings we would find him sleeping. Two weeks after its opening, I became the chef. I was 20 years old, and way over my head. I had to hire the cooks and do the menus.
The good things never stay in your head. Only the bad things live on.
You know, everybody has a slogan, and once you beat people over the head with it so much, then that's what you'll eventually be called once you retire from the sport or whatever.

I think about all my successes and failures, and sometimes the failures stick in your head as much as the wins. But you do move on.
Humor is merely tragedy standing on its head with its pants torn.
Irvin S. Cobb
A particularly fine head on a man usually means that he is stupid; particularly deep philosophers are usually shallow thinkers; in literature, talents not much above the average are usually regarded by their contemporaries as geniuses.
I might have faults but I'm not a big head.
I got to read some writings by serial killers, and they got inside my head. They were quite disturbing. I read disturbing stuff about that very detached way of manipulating people to do things.
You're not going to eliminate concussions. Anytime you hit your head, you have a chance of getting a concussion, in any sport, too. I think we have to learn more about it. Part of it is rules, part of it is equipment, part of it is medical studies, knowing more about the brain.
I have been through two wars in my 24 years, and I know what it's like to be without anything, to see the bombs flying above your head.

I get a much more extreme reaction when I have my hair really short. I look thuggish when I shave my head and wear big boots. I walk into a newsagent and people think I'm going to jump the counter. It's a much more extreme reaction.
My act is sort of improvisational. I have a skeleton in my head, but no fat or skin on it.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
