J. C. Watts
The trouble with organizing a thing is that pretty soon folks get to paying more attention to the organization than to what they're organized for.
Laura Ingalls Wilder

When school children start paying union dues, that 's when I'll start representing the interests of school children.
If you followed this economic crisis and you do not think that the world is getting flatter, you are not paying attention. We saw the entire global economy at one time acting totally in sync.

I don't think we need to extend unemployment any further without paying for it, and without making some modifications such as turning it into a loan at some point. It then encourages people to go back to work.
Ah, the power of two. There's nothing quite like it. Especially when it comes to paying utility bills, parenting, cooking elaborate meals, purchasing a grown-up bed, jumping rope and lifting heavy machinery. The world favours pairs. Who wants to waste the wood building an ark for singletons?
Marriage is like paying an endless visit in your worst clothes.
J. B. Priestley

The middle and working classes are paying the debt that the financial markets created.

When I got a deposit on my very first cake, I took that deposit and I bought some cake mix with it. I've never taken a loan - ever. And we're doing this expansion just like everything we've done in this bakery as we've grown. If we weren't able to afford paying for something cash, we didn't buy it.
A lot of what acting is paying attention.
Both conservatives and liberals watch 'Parks and Recreation,' and they each think the show is for them, which is really cool. 'SNL' was totally different. It was exciting because everyone was paying attention. Political humor works when people know what you're talking about.
You may not have any extra talent, but maybe you are just paying more attention to what you are doing.
