Good fiction creates empathy. A novel takes you somewhere and asks you to look through the eyes of another person, to live another life.
When you make a decision, you need facts. If those facts are in your brain, they're at your fingertips. If they're all in Google somewhere, you may not make the right decision on the spur of the moment.
I like my home to be somewhere where my friends can feel like they can put their feet up on the couch and for it to feel like really easy living. I really love to have my friends over, cook dinner for them, catch up, and spend quality time with quality people in my life.
I've been out of my comfort zone a lot, and it makes me more vulnerable, but I have to draw the line somewhere, and don't think I would go skydiving!
We've lost control of this planet somewhere. There's an echo in that kind of tornado situation, where you're powerless facing those phenomena.
Cirque du Soleil means Circus of the Sun. When I need to take time to reenergize, I go somewhere by the ocean to sit back and watch the sunsets. That is where the idea of 'Soleil' came from, on a beach in Hawaii, and because the sun is the symbol of youth and energy.
We're electrical items and when we die the electricity goes somewhere else. When we die our energy goes into the galaxy.
Conservatism is, among many other things, a culture. The most important glue binding it together is a shared sense of cultural grievance - the conviction, uniting conservatives high and low, theocratic and plutocratic, neocon and paleocon, that someone, somewhere is looking down their noses at them with a condescending sneer.
One's family is the most important thing in life. I look at it this way: One of these days I'll be over in a hospital somewhere with four walls around me. And the only people who'll be with me will be my family.
If you want someone to miss you, go secretly and spray your fragrance somewhere.
I think the 24-hour news cycle has helped exaggerate the differences between the parties. You can always find someone on TV somewhere carping about something. That didn't happen 20 years ago.
George H. W. Bush
As long as you look for a Buddha somewhere else, you'll never see that your own mind is the Buddha.
News is what somebody somewhere wants to suppress; all the rest is advertising.
You can put a kidney in your body - and somewhere down the line, your body might reject it.
I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.
Hollywood is in somewhat the same position as Las Vegas these days. It went from being the capital of sin to Disneyland, and now it's landed somewhere in between. It tries to keep the sins hidden away and outwardly present itself as a defender of American virtues: justice, individual freedom, and the power of one innocent soul to save the world.
I would just like a woman someday, somewhere, at some point in my life to say to me, 'You're a great listener.' Haven't heard it yet, and that's a superior compliment to get from a woman. But I'm going to work on it.
Right now I'd love to be sitting on a Greek island somewhere because of being Greek American, eating great octopus salad and some fantastic lamb. Or sipping a little ouzo. I think the Mediterranean diet is one of the healthiest... Lots of nuts, vegetables, fruits, fresh fish, lean meats, yogurt.
I care much more about saving the lives of mothers and babies than I do about a fancy museum somewhere.
What could be more lonely than to be enveloped in silence, to be the last of your people to speak your native tongue, to have no way to pass on the wisdom of the elders, to anticipate the promise of the children. This tragic fate is indeed the plight of someone somewhere roughly every two weeks.
The one thing you shouldn't do is try to tell a cab driver how to get somewhere.
If it's a penny for your thoughts and you put in your two cents worth, then someone, somewhere is making a penny.
My singing voice is somewhere between a drunken apology and a plumbing problem.
That sense of failure, I don't know where people put it who don't write songs and aren't able to emote physically. It must go somewhere.
Love can consign us to hell or to paradise, but it always takes us somewhere.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
