Once you start asking questions, innocence is gone.
The story being told in 'Star Wars' is a classic one. Every few hundred years, the story is retold because we have a tendency to do the same things over and over again. Power corrupts, and when you're in charge, you start doing things that you think are right, but they're actually not.
If you are going to write, say, fantasy - stop reading fantasy. You've already read too much. Read other things; read westerns, read history, read anything that seems interesting, because if you only read fantasy and then you start to write fantasy, all you're going to do is recycle the same old stuff and move it around a bit.
Right now people are interested in genetic engineering to help the human race. That's a noble cause, and that's where we should be heading. But once we get past that - once we understand what genetic diseases we can deal with - when we start thinking about the future, there's an opportunity to create some new life-forms.
The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician. Therefore the physician must start from nature, with an open mind.
I just think a hustler's ambition is that I never stop. I start off hustling and said I'll never stop hustling. An ambitious hustler is the one to hustle the hustlers. When I grew up, my heroes were hustlers. Now I'm their hero.
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 am interested in anything about revolt, disorder, chaos-especially activity that seems to have no meaning. It seems to me to be the road toward freedom... Rather than starting inside, I start outside and reach the mental through the physical.
Success is a state of mind. If you want success, start thinking of yourself as a success.
My doctor tells me I should start slowing it down - but there are more old drunks than there are old doctors so let's all have another round.
Baking makes me focus. On weighing the sugar. On sieving the flour. I find it calming and rewarding because, in fairness, it is sort of magic - you start off with all this disparate stuff, such as butter and eggs, and what you end up with is so totally different. And also delicious.
Old age is like everything else. To make a success of it, you've got to start young.
Humans have a light side and a dark side, and it's up to us to choose which way we're going to live our lives. Even if you start out on the dark side, it doesn't mean you have to continue your journey that way. You always have time to turn it around.
Taraji P. Henson
Today we often think that before we start living a religious life we have first to accept the creedal doctrines and that before one can have any comprehension of the loyalty and trust of faith, one must first force one's mind to accept a host of incomprehensible doctrines. But this is to put the cart before the horse.
What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.
T. S. Eliot
Language is a more recent technology. Your body language, your eyes, your energy will come through to your audience before you even start speaking.
When you start hiding things away, that's when the darkness creeps up. Sunlight is the best disinfectant.
Start wide, expand further, and never look back.
When you start using senses you've neglected, your reward is to see the world with completely fresh eyes.
I believe when you meet the right person it clicks, and you both know and you start making it work, you know?
If you have a bad day in baseball, and start thinking about it, you will have 10 more.
I work a little bit like a sculptor. When I start, my first idea for a building is with the material. I believe architecture is about that. It's not about paper, it's not about forms. It's about space and material.
There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality.
Right is right, and wrong is wrong, and when people start getting it confused, that means they need to sit down with some real people.
When you start out in a team, you have to get the teamwork going and then you get something back.
