I'm the kind of person who would have liked to have lived at the Plaza. I love crystal chandeliers and gold leaf, velvets and mirrors, Oriental rugs and marble.
The South is very beautiful but its beauty makes one sad because the lives that people live here, and have lived here, are so ugly.
I lived in the Republic of Ireland. I wrote a book about the North but as an outsider. The hatreds there were not mine. I never felt them. I liked how open in most ways Catalan nationalism was, compared to Irish nationalism. I disliked the violence and cruelty in Ireland.
I've traveled more than any human being who's ever lived.
I feel like I've lived a life of making mistakes and learning from them and doing my best to only make each mistake once.
We lived near a playground that had four baseball diamonds on it, and when I got to be 11, 12 years old, I was always over at the ballpark practicing or playing or doing something pertaining to baseball. And when I wasn't doing that, I was bouncing a rubber ball off the steps of my front porch at home.
That man is a success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much.
Robert Louis Stevenson
True life is lived when tiny changes occur.
I'm not the dumbest guy that ever lived.
I feel like I have lived all over the world since I get to go everywhere to film.
I lived in Vancouver, where they film so many things. So it gave me a good shot at it.
The first time I lived in L.A. I was too young. I really wanted to be back home in Vancouver.
I lived on my own when I was living in New York City when I was 18, working on a show. And that definitely kind of grows you up a little faster than a normal 18-year-old in college, so I think so. I think I've got some street smarts.
I went to a haunted house once, and I don't do well in situations like that, and I've lived my entire life not being scared or anything.
I learned how to get rid of the Southern accent when I was, like, 11 years old and living in New York for the summer doing modeling and commercials and auditioning for Broadway. The mother I lived with for the summer taught me how to drop my Southern accent.
I have no regrets. I wouldn't have lived my life the way I did if I was going to worry about what people were going to say.
I've made my share of mistakes along the way, but if I have changed even one life for the better, I haven't lived in vain.
Never throughout history has a man who lived a life of ease left a name worth remembering.
The truth is, I'm proud of the life I've lived so far, and though I've made my share of mistakes, I have no regrets.
This is the precept by which I have lived: Prepare for the worst; expect the best; and take what comes.
Humanity's legacy of stories and storytelling is the most precious we have. All wisdom is in our stories and songs. A story is how we construct our experiences. At the very simplest, it can be: 'He/she was born, lived, died.' Probably that is the template of our stories - a beginning, middle, and end. This structure is in our minds.
Your life changes. Everything has to be done perfectly, and I didn't follow that. I lived my life as if I wasn't in the public eye. I thought, 'I'm young. I have the right to experience new things, and if I want to go to a bar and get drunk, that's my prerogative.'
Once you've lived the inside-out world of espionage, you never shed it. It's a mentality, a double standard of existence.
John le Carre
Tomorrow is nothing, today is too late; the good lived yesterday.
Life must be lived and curiosity kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
