Morality is not just any old topic in psychology but close to our conception of the meaning of life. Moral goodness is what gives each of us the sense that we are worthy human beings.
You can't regulate child labor. You can't regulate slavery. Some things are just wrong.
Tramping is too easy with all this money. My days were more exciting when I was penniless and had to forage around for my next meal... I've decided that I'm going to live this life for some time to come. The freedom and simple beauty of it is just too good to pass up.
I don't see myself being special; I just see myself having more responsibilities than the next man. People look to me to do things for them, to have answers.
No work or love will flourish out of guilt, fear, or hollowness of heart, just as no valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now.
Some people create with words or with music or with a brush and paints. I like to make something beautiful when I run. I like to make people stop and say, 'I've never seen anyone run like that before.' It's more than just a race, it's a style. It's doing something better than anyone else. It's being creative.
Over the holidays, and even during filming, I realized that I actually like my body, even if it's not perfect according to the book. I just feel sexy. For the first time, I don't want to get rid of the curves. I just want to tone it up. My body is comfortable, and it's not unhealthy, so I'm going to rock with it.
Endurance is not just the ability to bear a hard thing, but to turn it into glory.
Just really, really believe in what you're trying to do. Don't let people alter that. Let people advise you and lead you down paths to make smart business decisions. But trust your instinct and trust that overwhelming drive that made you put all your dreams and everything on the line.
You know, I just tend to grow my beard out for 'Parks and Rec.' As an actor it's always easier to shave or cut your hair for a role, but it's hard to put fake hair on or grow hair for a role. When you look at pictures of me, the longer my hair is, the longer my facial hair is, that's just the longer I haven't gotten a job.
Just because something doesn't do what you planned it to do doesn't mean it's useless.
Thomas A. Edison
Never give up, which is the lesson I learned from boxing. As soon as you learn to never give up, you have to learn the power and wisdom of unconditional surrender, and that one doesn't cancel out the other; they just exist as contradictions. The wisdom of it comes as you get older.
What I am is how I came out. No one's perfect and you just have to accept your flaws and learn to love yourself.
When I was about five, I gave my heart to Jesus Christ, and since then it's just been a stronghold in my life. Really, through the shark attack and all the hard times that my family and I went through, it gave us unity and perseverance to push through all this crazy stuff that we never knew was going to happen.
Just keep taking chances and having fun.
A strong sense of humor, a really awesome personality, and maturity is also really important in a boyfriend. I tend to only be attracted to older guys for that reason. I just love guys who have a really strong sense of who they are.
Follow your dreams. Just make sure to have fun too.
I know I haven't always done things the right way. I'm just trying to reflect on how to make myself better, how to become a better man, a better father, a better person, a better artist.
My favorite fruit is grapes. Because with grapes, you always get another chance. 'Cause, you know, if you have a crappy apple or a peach, you're stuck with that crappy piece of fruit. But if you have a crappy grape, no problem - just move on to the next. 'Grapes: The Fruit of Hope.'
Life can be pulled by goals just as surely as it can be pushed by drives.
Viktor E. Frankl
Have you ever been hurt and the place tries to heal a bit, and you just pull the scar off of it over and over again.
If you want to be successful, it's just this simple. Know what you are doing. Love what you are doing. And believe in what you are doing.
If my future were determined just by my performance on a standardized test, I wouldn't be here. I guarantee you that.
Just cause you got the monkey off your back doesn't mean the circus has left town.
Everything is political. I will never be a politician or even think political. Me just deal with life and nature. That is the greatest thing to me.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
