The American people are sheep. They're comfortable, rich, working. It's like the Romans, they're happy with bread and their spectator sports. The Super Bowl means more to them than any right.
Some teachers just have a knack for working with autistic children. Other teachers do not have it.
If your working television sits on top of your non-working television, you might be a redneck.
I was not naturally talented. I didn't sing, dance or act, though working around that minor detail made me inventive.
We have to go into the despair and go beyond it, by working and doing for somebody else, by using it for something else.
What's really important in life? Sitting on a beach? Looking at television eight hours a day? I think we have to appreciate that we're alive for only a limited period of time, and we'll spend most of our lives working.
I had always loved John Ford's pictures. And I came to love him, too, but I was frightened to death working for him. He used the shock treatment while directing me.
I was a pizza delivery boy at the Pizza Oven in Canton. I wanted to get fired so bad, I actually wrecked the delivery car, but they wouldn't fire me because I was the only person they had working there.
When I get up and work out, I'm working out just as much for my girls as I am for me, because I want them to see a mother who loves them dearly, who invests in them, but who also invests in herself. It's just as much about letting them know as young women that it is okay to put yourself a little higher on your priority list.
I missed my dad a lot growing up, even though we were together as a family. My dad was really a workaholic. And he was always working.
I tell you the solemn truth, that the doctrine of the Trinity is not so difficult to accept for a working proposition as any one of the axioms of physics.
It is not always by plugging away at a difficulty and sticking to it that one overcomes it; often it is by working on the one next to it. Some things and some people have to be approached obliquely, at an angle.

In the aftermath of September 11, and as the 9/11 Commission report so aptly demonstrates, it is clear that our intelligence system is not working the way that it should.
There's no pleasure in working if you don't do the things you want to do.
Work is so much fun that it doesn't really seem like downtime when I'm not. But cooking, spending time with my family, friends and dog are what I'm usually doing when I'm not working on something.
I was interested by the idea that artists working in a totalitarian dictatorship or tsarist autocracy are secretly and slightly shamefully envied by artists who work in freedom. They have the gratification of intense interest: the authorities want to put them in jail, while there are younger readers for whom what they write is pure oxygen.
Life isn't about the final moments, it's about the journey, it's about process. What makes 'Rocky' work as a movie is seeing him working his way up from the streets to the arena and the fight of his life. You could just show that fight, and it would be great, but seeing that journey illuminates that fight and adds profound meaning to it.
J. Michael Straczynski

Women love working together. That's my experience anyway.
God requires his servants to walk in the light, and not cover their eyes that they may not discern the working of Satan.
Ellen G. White
You know I love pot, and I love beer, but I am totally sober, just because it completely stopped working for me.
I'm just an individual who doesn't feel that I need to have somebody qualify my work in any particular way. I'm working for me.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
