We all knew this. We all knew that it would take more time than any of us want to dig ourselves out of this hole created by this economic crisis.
I want a man who's kind and understanding. Is that too much to ask of a millionaire?
Zsa Zsa Gabor
I've never preached one sermon on money, on just finances. I want to stay away from it.
I just want to go through Central Park and watch folks passing by. Spend the whole day watching people. I miss that.
I don't want expensive gifts; I don't want to be bought. I have everything I want. I just want someone to be there for me, to make me feel safe and secure.
I find it strange the way human nature wants heroes and yet wants to destroy their heroes. It's a kind of mass insecurity people want something to look up to and get a buzz off but, at the same time, want to destroy it because it makes them feel insecure.
I wish President Obama had succeeded because I want America to succeed. But his promises gave way to disappointment and division. This isn't something we have to accept. Now is the moment when we can do something. With your help we will do something.
If you knew that your life was merely a phase or short, short segment of your entire existence, how would you live? Knowing nothing 'real' was at risk, what would you do? You'd live a gigantic, bold, fun, dazzling life. You know you would. That's what the ghosts want us to do - all the exciting things they no longer can.
If you dream the proper dreams, and share the myths with people, they will want to grow up to be like you.
After one look at this planet any visitor from outer space would say 'I want to see the manager.'
William S. Burroughs
It isn't sufficient just to want - you've got to ask yourself what you are going to do to get the things you want.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
If you want to give up the admiration of thousands of men for the distain of one, go ahead, get married.
The wish to acquire more is admittedly a very natural and common thing; and when men succeed in this they are always praised rather than condemned. But when they lack the ability to do so and yet want to acquire more at all costs, they deserve condemnation for their mistakes.
Do right. Do your best. Treat others as you want to be treated.
If I am not allowed to laugh in heaven, I don't want to go there.
If you want something done, ask a busy person to do it. The more things you do, the more you can do.
Marriage is a wonderful institution, but who would want to live in an institution?
H. L. Mencken
The burden of originality is one that most people don't want to accept. They'd rather sit in front of the TV and let that tell them what they're supposed to like, what they're supposed to buy, and what they're supposed to laugh at.
If you want to achieve things in life, you've just got to do them, and if you're talented and smart, you'll succeed.
You know, out-of-touch liberals like Barack Obama say they want a strong economy, but in everything they do, they show they don't like business very much. But the economy, of course, is simply the product of all the businesses of the nation added together. So it's a bit like saying you like an omelet, but you don't like eggs.
And Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values, like you work hard for what you want in life. That your word is your bond; that you do what you say you're going to do. That you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don't know them and even if you don't agree with them.
Only those who want everything done for them are bored.
If you want to gather honey, don't kick over the beehive.

Most comedy is based on getting a laugh at somebody else's expense. And I find that that's just a form of bullying in a major way. So I want to be an example that you can be funny and be kind, and make people laugh without hurting somebody else's feelings.
If you are not allowed to laugh in heaven, I don't want to go there.
