Early in my career I was accused of being overconfident and even cocky, but I really was confident that I had done the training and didn't see any other reason to say otherwise.
The one thing I do know is that I'm the best Taylor Hawkins drummer there is, and that is all I can hope to be. And when it comes to music, musicianship and skill, there is no such thing as better or worse because so much is personal opinion, and I can see that now.
Children are so used to seeing puppets that when they see a real ventriloquist they don't understand it.
The writing of 'Topdog' was a great gift. I feel the play came to me because I realized that my circumstances, while causing me despair and heartbreak, also held great possibility, if only I could see it.
The only way to see a movie is in a big theater, on a big screen, with a big bag of popcorn.
I feel like contemporary art is everywhere now and with the rise of the internet, it's so much easier to see what artists are doing and to follow their careers.
I'd just like to be in films that I would like to see.
I'm afraid we'll see reporters stop chasing quotes around the same time dogs stop chasing cars.
In Christ we see a maturity of love that flowers in self-sacrifice and forgiveness; a maturity of power that never swerves from the ideal of service; a maturity of goodness that overcomes every temptation, and, of course, we see the ultimate victory of life over death itself.
And if you see me, smile and maybe give me a hug. That's important to me too.
Let's face it: Most of us don't realize it, but we are failing our kids as reading role models. The best role models are in the home: brothers, fathers, grandfathers; mothers, sisters, grandmothers. Moms and dads, it's important that your kids see you reading. Not just books - reading the newspaper is good, too.
There's a woman I see who's not my therapist, but she's like an old friend who's a therapist in profession. She lets me talk to her like a therapist once in a while, and she does a great thing. Whenever I have a big dilemma, like this is a big problem in my life, she always says, 'Wow, you're going to have to figure that out.'
Louis C. K.
All the lessons of history in four sentences: Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad with power. The mills of God grind slowly, but they grind exceedingly small. The bee fertilizes the flower it robs. When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.
Charles A. Beard
Coincidence is the word we use when we can't see the levers and pulleys.

The thing that lies at the foundation of positive change, the way I see it, is service to a fellow human being.
In looking back, I see nothing to regret and little to correct.
John C. Calhoun
When you're scared, when you're hanging on, when life is hurting you, then you're going to see what you're really made of.
If one can only see things according to one's own belief system, one is destined to become virtually deaf, dumb, and blind.
Robert Anton Wilson
A lot of people say they want to get out of pain, and I'm sure that's true, but they aren't willing to make healing a high priority. They aren't willing to look inside to see the source of their pain in order to deal with it.
I love wushu a lot and I would love to see it included in future Olympic Games.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
