Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.
It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary.
We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love.
It takes more than just a good looking body. You've got to have the heart and soul to go with it.
When we ask for advice, we are usually looking for an accomplice.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Music is only love looking for words.
You can talk about what you see from the outside; it's hard to tell me who I am when you're just looking at me with a football uniform on. That's a totally different person. That's my job, that's it.
Why do the Yankees always win? The other team can't stop looking at the pinstripes.
I believe that the role of limited government should be looking after the needs of veterans, the elderly, children and those institutions that improve the quality of life for struggling families - I don't believe that government should bend to serve the needs of subsidized multi-national corporations and entitled billionaires.
People create their own questions because they are afraid to look straight. All you have to do is look straight and see the road, and when you see it, don't sit looking at it - walk.
I would like people to recognize in looking at my story that the person who has the most to do with what happens to you is you.

I think what they're looking for is for us to keep our promises and to do the simple things, like cutting spending and being responsible.

Leonardo da Vinci
