Joseph C. Lincoln
My childhood ambition was to be an Olympic swimmer like my aunt, but that died a quick death when I discovered other sports. I swam very competitively till I was 15, then I swam for fun until I was 18. But athletics remain a very big part of my life.
Skateboarding was the only thing I was ever good at. Growing up, I was doing that from, like, dusk till dawn.
Let's face it. There is no setup in Pakistan to train and groom young players at the grassroots level in different sports. Those of us who did make a name for ourselves and became champions did it with our own initiative - there was no academy to back us till we reached a certain level on our own.
I went without health insurance until 'Roger & Me,' basically - from about age 20 till about age 35. With 'Roger & Me,' I joined the Directors Guild and the Writers Guild, and since then I've had excellent health care managed by the union.
Only nine States have been represented since my arrival 'till within three days. There are now Eleven States barely represented. This tardiness in the States or their Delegates, besides retarding the most important Business makes it exceeding fatiguing to those that do attend.
I write every day. I don't have a writing schedule. I write when I feel like it. Fortunately, I feel like it all the time. I am writing for hours. I do like to write in the morning. I start after breakfast, like 9 o'clock, and I'll write till lunch, about 1. And after lunch, I just have fun.
I tell people, and it's the truth, I could sit in my garage for a week and it won't make me a car. And you can sit in church till your bottom is flat and that won't make you a servant of Christ.
Books are like imprisoned souls till someone takes them down from a shelf and frees them.
Truth, after all, wears a different face to everybody, and it would be too tedious to wait till all were agreed.
James Russell Lowell
We don't have to think up a title till we get the doggone book written.
We never do anything well till we cease to think about the manner of doing it.
Men and women should stay apart, till their hearts grow gentle towards one another again.
D. H. Lawrence
No wild enthusiast could rest, till half the world like him was possessed.
Experience isn't interesting until it begins to repeat itself. In fact, till it does that, it hardly is experience.
You have to remember, I never became successful or wealthy till I was 30.
I believe that I am past my prime. I had reckoned on my prime lasting till I was at least fifty.

So you never get a sense of whether they're really well liked or how good they are. And you don't really know what the finished product is going to be like, because it's a director's medium.
When all is done, human life is, at the greatest and the best, but like a froward child, that must be played with and humored a little to keep it quiet till it falls asleep, and then the care is over.
From one till seven, when we moved to England, I spoke only Portuguese. But I can't speak a word of it now.
Turn resolutely to work, to recreation, or in any case to physical exercise till you are so tired you can't help going to sleep, and when you wake up you won't want to worry.

A lot of the fun lies in trying to penetrate the mystery; and this is best done by saying over the lines to yourself again and again, till they pass through the stage of sounding like nonsense, and finally return to a full sense that had at first escaped notice.
If I have to, I'll go and direct theater and talk till the cows come home.
I have followed holiness, I have taught truth, and I have been most in the main things; not that I thought the things concerning our times little, but that I thought none could do anything to purpose in God's great and public matters, till they were right in their conditions.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
