To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug.
Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know.
When I hear people talk about juggling, or the sacrifices they make for their children, I look at them like they're crazy, because 'sacrifice' infers that there was something better to do than being with your children.
Four hostile newspapers are more to be feared than a thousand bayonets.
You should hurry up and acquire the cigar habit. It's one of the major happinesses. And so much more lasting than love, so much less costly in emotional wear and tear.
Do not speak of your happiness to one less fortunate than yourself.
Most people would rather be certain they're miserable, than risk being happy.
Everybody that I was in school with had an uncle or father in the law, and I started to realize that I was going to end up writing briefs for about ten years for these fellows who I thought I was smarter than. And I was kind of losing my feeling for that.
It is far more difficult to murder a phantom than a reality.
It's better to burn out, than to fade away.
It's better to waste money, than it is to waste time. You can always get more money.

I think I could have consolidated what we achieved at Camp David with a treaty between Israel and the Palestinians.
People became more interested in my love life than in me, and that has a certain effect. You start to feel very empty and worth nothing, you start to become a piece in a board game you never wanted to play.

Social media is a giant distraction to the ultimate aim, which is honing your craft as a songwriter. There are people who are exceptional at it, however, and if you can do both things, then that's fantastic, but if you are a writer, the time is better spent on a clever lyric than a clever tweet.
With each new day in Africa, a gazelle wakes up knowing he must outrun the fastest lion or perish. At the same time, a lion stirs and stretches, knowing he must outrun the fastest gazelle or starve.

Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum
