Before deciding to retire, stay home for a week and watch the daytime TV shows.
Three years ago, this week, a newly elected President Obama faced the American people and he said, look, if I can't turn this economy around in three years, I'll be looking at a one-term proposition, and we're here to collect! You know the results. It's been 35 months of unemployment above 8 percent.
Trust me, there's not one night a week I'm not in a theater somewhere. I adore theater, and I go out with friends, so I do have some nights off.
If you're working 50 hours a week to try to maintain family income, and your children have the kinds of aspirations that come from being flooded with television from age one, and associations have declined, people end up hopeless, even though they have every option.
I have to work really hard, eight shows a week, to get a nice check as an actor. But when I write a play, and it's a - knock wood - hit, the checks come in for many years.
America believes in education: the average professor earns more money in a year than a professional athlete earns in a whole week.
Even though we're a week and a half away from Thanksgiving, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
At home I have a copy of the April 21, 1986, issue of 'Sports Illustrated.' I'm on the cover with the blurb, 'Can Lou Do It?' I'd just arrived at Notre Dame, and with spring football underway, I was the focal point of that week's coverage.
It's a staggering transition for high school students that found they could study five hours a week and make As and Bs.

I put out one album one week, and I'm already worried about the next one. I feel a lot of emotion throughout the course of a day. But not to the point where you need to be worried about me.
I go to the gym three days a week. You have to or else - I don't want to be the guy that dies shoveling snow.
I do probably 60 concerts a year in the States. And I go out to clubs in the week. I'm doing new stuff all the time.
The key to a winning season is focusing on one opponent at a time. Winning one week at a time. Never look back and never look ahead.
I wouldn't want to go out six nights a week and watch somebody's reserves playing to check out a footballer to see if we're going to buy him.

They come together like the Coroner's Inquest, to sit upon the murdered reputations of the week.
The doctor said, 'He can't last a week.' And I did. And they said, 'There's no way this kid's going to last a month.' And I did. And so they said, 'Two years. He's not going to make it.' Two years. 'Five years. He can't do that.' I lived to be five years. 'He's never going to hit double digits.' And here I am, a new teenager.

People are still willing to do an honest day's work. The trouble is they want a week's pay for it.
A working woman could save a few shillings a week, and then every five weeks she'd come in and we'd cut her hair. She could shampoo it under the shower, swing it and dry it off or just let it dry by itself. It changed the lives of many young girls who'd never had the opportunity to be styled like that before.
