Strong I am one of those who never knows the direction of my journey until I have almost arrived.
Anna Louise Strong
Ignorance breeds antipathy. Until I got to know how computers worked, I didn't want anything to do with them. I said, 'Well, why do I need them? I write letters.' Which I still do.
Some of us must wait for the best human gifts until we come to heavenly places. Our natural desire for musical utterance is perhaps a prophecy that in a perfect world we shall all know how to sing.
I always thought of myself as some sort of athlete until I started playing golf a couple years ago.
In your 20s you can be pretty, but you don't accomplish real beauty until you find wisdom and depth.

Face it, I didn't become famous until I took my clothes off.
When I first moved to L.A., I discovered Roy London. I didn't know anything about the arts, the profession; I had no technique, I knew nothing, I'm fresh from Missouri. I sat in on a few classes, and they just felt a little guru-ish and just didn't feel right to me. Until I met Roy.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
