Unless you love someone, nothing else makes any sense.
e. e. cummings
Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.
I place an enormous premium on loyalty. If someone betrays me, I can forgive them rationally, but emotionally I have found it impossible to do so.
Richard E. Grant
I think if someone gets kicked in the face it is their fault - they watched the foot come towards their face.
Whatever hardships there have been in my life I still live in a very privileged position. Fear is not knowing where your next meal is coming from. Fear is seeing a child get hurt. Fear is watching someone you love waste away. Fear is knowing you are going to die yourself. But there's no fear in what I do. I write books.
There's always going to be someone out there... who doesn't believe in you or who thinks your head is too big or you're not smart enough. But those are the people you need to ignore, and those are the times you need to just keep doing what you love doing.
The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.
Do more than is required. What is the distance between someone who achieves their goals consistently and those who spend their lives and careers merely following? The extra mile.
Gary Ryan Blair
There will always be a few people who just want to knock you down or are jealous or just want to be horrible for the sake of it. I don't know what drives someone to be nasty.
We need to understand the difference between discipline and punishment. Punishment is what you do to someone; discipline is what you do for someone.
When I fight someone, I want to break his will. I want to take his manhood. I want to rip out his heart and show it to him.
Acting is not about being someone different. It's finding the similarity in what is apparently different, then finding myself in there.
If you want to be successful, find someone who has achieved the results you want and copy what they do and you'll achieve the same results.
Before the Civil War, Canada was at the top of the underground railroad. If you made it into Canada, you were safe unless someone came and hauled you back. That was also true during the Vietnam War for draft resisters.
You can't live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.
Babies don't need fathers, but mothers do. Someone who is taking care of a baby needs to be taken care of.
It's not vanity to feel you have a right to be beautiful. Women are taught to feel we're not good enough, that we must live up to someone else's standards. But my aim is to cherish myself as I am.
I like my life alone. I mean, I love being with friends, and I love kissing and loving someone to pieces. But it's hard to find someone who doesn't ultimately start judging you and your choices.
I have an internal protectiveness where it's like, if it comes to just me, as frightened as I am of losing someone I love or things going sour or simply being alone, there is a dark place in my brain where I'm like, It could happen and I'm okay, I'm prepared.
When my wife and I met, I couldn't talk to her - and my defense mechanism is sarcasm. I belittle someone with verbal pokes and prods. I did it to her out of complete awe. When friends introduced us, I said 'Hi' - and turned my back. Later, I called my mom and best friend and said, 'I think I just met my wife.'
God never gives someone a gift they are not capable of receiving. If he gives us the gift of Christmas, it is because we all have the ability to understand and receive it.
You have to be someone.
For me, every hour is grace. And I feel gratitude in my heart each time I can meet someone and look at his or her smile.
I've always wanted to smash a guitar over someone's head. You just can't do that with a piano.
I think right now the way society's going, I think role models are important, and kids need direction. If I didn't have that direction growing up, who knows what I could be doing, because I've been lost many times in my life, and I've had to have someone guide me back on the right path.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
