One of my favorite places is Seattle. Growing up, I never thought I'd be able to go to Seattle. I grew up in eastern South Carolina, so that's as far as you can get from Seattle, unless I lived in Miami.
We have a finite amount of time. Whether short or long, it doesn't matter. Life is to be lived.
For me, a novel is always the result of my attempt to impose myself on raw circumstances. It is a concrete form of lived experience.
I lived in Los Angeles in the '80s, which was not the best place to be.
I have lived a carnal life.
I lived through the Fifties in the Midwest when everything that was happening - the repression of homosexuality, for instance, the demonization of the Left, the giggly, soporific ordinariness of adolescence, the stone-deafness to the social injustice all around us - seemed not only unobjectionable but also nonexistent.
Then I left school at 16 and worked in Perth Repertory Theatre, which was quite nearby where I lived. And I worked there for about six or seven months, as part of the stage crew.
I have been to the theater more since I have lived in New York than I ever really did in London working on a television show.
Richard C. Armitage
I have lived in the only decades I could have lived in, and hope to live through at least a few more.
Orson Scott Card
Growing up, I lived a moderate lifestyle with my family.
I don't know where my father is from. I just don't. He's lived in so many countries.
I would find myself getting deeply distressed if I lived in hindsight all the time.
I would like to do my own daily talk show. Wisdom is the gift of ageing; no young person can have or buy it. My success was and is self-evident. I'm alive. I've lived. I've thrived and have grown as a person. I'm now healthier than ever. Who can argue with that?
I don't write anything that I haven't lived. In terms of integrity, you have to write what you live. And if you write beyond what you live, it is theory. And theory is not helpful. It is just not.
I don't think I was funny until college. I lived with some Harvard MD/PhD students - they were so smart, and what I contributed to the house was, I was the funny one.
Inauthenticity is endemic in American politics today. The political backrooms where I spent much of my career were just as benighted as my personal life, equally crowded with shadowy strangers and compromises, truths I hoped to deny. I lived not in one closet but in many.
I was fat because I lived in the Midwest in the 1970s, and everyone was a little fat then and only getting fatter.
Since its first day as a nation, Israel has lived under a cloud of aggression from militant extremists and hostile neighboring governments.
I've lived nearby since 1981 and probably have averaged one run a week there. That's more than 1,000 repetitions, and I have yet to tire of this course.
I lived in L.A. for a few months. It seemed like no one there had parents. Or if they did have parents, they would deny it.
A life lived in fear is a life half lived.
I lived in America for a long time before I started working as an actor. Some actors show up on set and have never done an American accent before, so they rely on a slew of technical mechanisms. Part of what makes an accent is understanding why people speak that way - you have to understand the culture.
I have been interested in fashion since I was a kid. Then I lived in London, where it was more about costume and a personal statement of who you are than about fashion.
For years I had lived in my body half-consciously, ignoring it mostly, dismissing its agendas wherever I could, and forever pressing it into the service of mental conceptions that resulted, almost as a by-product, sometimes in its pleasuring and sometimes in its abuse.
We lived the life with Keith Moon. It was all Spinal Tap magnified a thousand times.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
