You have a ready wit. Tell me when it's ready.
Most people live in a myth and grow violently angry if anyone dares to tell them the truth about themselves.
Robert Anton Wilson
Tell them to send everything that can fly.

We are reminded how short life really is, and how we are just passing through. So, all the people you haven't told you love lately, tell them, and live your days like you mean it.
Many who have spent a lifetime in it can tell us less of love than the child that lost a dog yesterday.
Bad directors will tell you they absolutely know how to do it, and how it has to happen; there's this insecurity that leads them to feeling like they have to control everything.
If some people didn't tell you, you'd never know they'd been away on a vacation.
I would love to sign on to do a movie if it was the right role and if it was the right script, because I would be taking time away from music to tell a big grand story, and spend all of my time and pouring all of my emotions into being someone else. So for me to do that, it would have to be a story worth telling.
I tell kids to pursue their basketball dreams, but I tell them to not let that be their only dream.
I'm completely unlike a lot of other performers in the past who have been forgiven or come to terms with the real world because they tell everyone their performance is 'just a show.' And so, people say, 'Oh, it's OK then. We don't care. He's not really a bad person.' It's not just a show for me. It's my life.
Tell me to what you pay attention and I will tell you who you are.
Jose Ortega y Gasset
The lies we tell ourselves are the most subtle of all lies.
Lewis B. Smedes

I wish I could do a lot of things different. I'm not going to tell you what they are, but if I had a list of all my films right now, I'd go, 'Okay, I'll cross that one out and cross that one out and cross that one out and cross that one out.' Really. But I've made over 40 films. How can I not have some losers in there?
Do you know because I tell you so, or do you know, do you know.
Don't let other people tell you what you want.
I've been & am absurdly over-estimated. There are no supermen & I'm quite ordinary, & will say so whatever the artistic results. In that point I'm one of the few people who tell the truth about myself.
T. E. Lawrence
The mind controls so much of the body. We are much more than flesh and blood; we are complex systems. Patients do better when they have faith that they're going to do better. That's why I always tell my patients and their families not to neglect their prayers. There's nobody I don't say that to.
The greatest weakness of most humans is their hesitancy to tell others how much they love them while they're alive.
Orlando Aloysius Battista
Whatever life we have experienced, if we can tell our story to someone who listens, we find it easier to deal with our circumstances.
