Quote of the Day

Rock guitarists usually do not wish to think trains of thought about anything but their own guitar playing during a long solo, and I could not play this way if I were not able to divide my attention between my ever changing musical environment and my instrument itself.
I wish I was more stupid because I'm either completely ecstatic and joyous and absolutely high as a kite or I'm a bit morbid. There's never anything in between.
I think one thing that kids who grow up on farms really have going for them is they have exposure to death and birth in a totally different way. I think it takes away a little bit of the mystery and a little bit of the fear, and I do wish I had that. And I wish I was able to grow my own food.
Who you are vs. who you wish you were: Who wins?
Never answer the question that is asked of you. Answer the question that you wish had been asked of you.
There's only one thing I never did and wish I had done: climbed over a fence.
I would say that one of the things I wish I could do differently would be to be more outgoing.
Ah, well, do I wish that we lived in a world where gender didn't figure so prominently? Of course. Do I even think about myself as a woman when I go to make art? Of course not.
I wish my teammates, coaches and the entire Lions organization all the best.
These things were happening in my life where I was like, 'Man, I wish my pops was here to see this.' I never had those thoughts before fame, when my life was just a regular life. I wasn't saying, 'I wish my dad could be around and see me working at Applebee's.'
The 'low' quality of many American films, and of much American popular culture, induces many art lovers to support cultural protectionism. Few people wish to see the cultural diversity of the world disappear under a wave of American market dominance.
A girl came up to me in a bar and said she wanted to be my apple pie. I wish I'd said something cool, but I was stunned.
There aren't enough good roles for strong women. I wish we had more female writers. Most of the female characters you see in films today are the 'poor heartbroken girl.'
Are you trivialising the sisterhood if you dye your hair or have your eyebrows threaded? I'd say the answer to that is no. But equally, it's a perfectly valid feminist thing to say there is a certain amount of attention on a woman's appearance, and I don't wish that to be the focus or a distraction.
I wish people would spend their money on hybrid cars.
I do see things that are funny on the net. I Googled myself the other day and found out that I was worth $250m, and that I was the highest-paid guy in show business! I wish so hard it was true. It is, of course, the complete opposite. I'm neither rich nor do I make a lot of money.
I don't want to be a great executive without being a great mum and a great wife. I don't want to look back and say I wish I had done things differently. 'Balance' is a really big word for me.
There's a lot of times that both myself and my brother wish, obviously, that we were just completely normal.
Peace and friendship with all mankind is our wisest policy, and I wish we may be permitted to pursue it.
Children wish fathers looked but with their eyes; fathers that children with their judgment looked; and either may be wrong.
A lot of people don't realize that depression is an illness. I don't wish it on anyone, but if they would know how it feels, I swear they would think twice before they just shrug it.
There is not a truth existing which I fear... or would wish unknown to the whole world.
I have seen enough of one war never to wish to see another.
I realize that I'm black, but I like to be viewed as a person, and this is everybody's wish.
I wish to preach, not the doctrine of ignoble ease, but the doctrine of the strenuous life.
Leonardo da Vinci
