When I was growing up, my mother was always a friend to my siblings and me (in addition to being all the other things a mom is), and I was always grateful for that because I knew she was someone I could talk to and joke with, and argue with and that nothing would ever harm that friendship.
Leadership is getting someone to do what they don't want to do, to achieve what they want to achieve.
Few things can make us feel crazier than expecting something from someone who has nothing to give.
The conversational overachiever is someone whose grasp exceeds his reach. This is possible but not attractive.
Fatherhood is great because you can ruin someone from scratch.
Grief and memory go together. After someone dies, that's what you're left with. And the memories are so slippery yet so rich.
I think the best thing for you to do is just live your life. Live a life that's worth living, one where you do what you want to do, pursue your passions. That way, if you meet someone, they'll be joining a life that's already really good.
People often become actresses because of something they dislike about themselves: They pretend they are someone else.
I think the most attractive thing is a sense of humour. If someone can make you laugh, you've gotten a lot out of the way.
Others can challenge and motivate us, but we must reach down deep into our souls and call forth our God-given intelligence and capabilities. We cannot do this when we depend on the efforts of someone else.
James E. Faust
Offer someone the opportunity to rebuild a company or reinvent an industry as the primary incentive, and it will attract those drawn to the challenge first and the money second.
For me, the key is I always have to be the same person. If someone was to hear me say something on Fox and hear me say something different on NPR, they would say, 'The guy is a hypocrite.'
I think I find new idols every day - someone that says something really inspiring, is successful, has character.
Without hurting anybody, we all tend to laugh at others' discomfort. When someone slips on a banana skin and falls it's funny.
Shah Rukh Khan
You just want something else that someone else has, but that doesn't mean what you have isn't beautiful, because people always want what you have, and you always want what they have - no one is ever 100 per cent like, 'Yes, I'm the bomb dot com - from head to toe!'
Sarcasm is weird. Even not in acting, in life I feel like 'sarcastic' is a word that people use to describe me sometimes so when I meet someone, it's almost like they feel like they have to also be sarcastic, but it can sometimes just come off as mean if it's not used in the right way.
I think I'm a really good girlfriend, and I think that I could be a really good wife. I know that I love being able to give my love out to someone. I know there is somebody great out there for me.
Jennifer Love Hewitt
I think when two people get together, their past is their past. Their reputations are reputations. You can only take someone the way you find them... on face value.
I'm not that good looking. That's why 'Gangnam Style' works. If someone handsome uses that phrase it's just awkward. But if someone like me uses it, it's funny.
I really think that it's disgusting that Paris is the only place where it is illegal for paps to follow you around. It actually took someone losing their life - Diana, an inspirational woman - and then it changed, but they still won't change it in London! It's horrible!
Someone's energy and aura and soul are so much more important - they don't compare to what you have on.
Being a conductor is kind of a hybrid profession because most fundamentally, it is being someone who is a coach, a trainer, an editor, a director.
Michael Tilson Thomas
The nature of honesty is that if someone has information or knows something about you that you don't want heard, then they have power over you.
You have to be someone.
I know of no wars started by anyone to impose lack of religion on someone else. We have lethal Sunni v Shia, Catholic against Protestant, but no agnostic suicide bombers attack crowded atheist pubs.
Hate is always a clash between our spirit and someone else's body.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.
