Man is a special being, and if left to himself, in an isolated condition, would be one of the weakest creatures; but associated with his kind, he works wonders.
Anyone who works on a quilt, who devotes her time, energy, creativity, and passion to that art, learns to value the work of her hands. And as any quilter will tell you, a quilter's quilting friends are some of the dearest, most generous, and most supportive people she knows.
Companies are not charitable enterprises: They hire workers to make profits. In the United States, this logic still works. In Europe, it hardly does.
You know, there are artists who are 35 and up that still make rap and that still works for them. I don't know if I want to be that guy.
Sometimes a scene works and acting is the easiest thing in the world and you don't have to do much of anything - just enjoy yourself and listen to the other actor. When it doesn't work, then every actor has different ways of dealing with the impasse. Sometimes you use memories from the past. Whatever. It depends from job to job.
The forgotten man... He works, he votes, generally he prays, but his chief business in life is to pay.
William Graham Sumner
There is a lushness to how my mind works.
I would never complain about the position I'm in or the attention I get. At the end of the day, I'm very lucky to have what I have and do what I do, but I don't see myself as any different from anyone else who works hard and is a dad and a husband.
In many cases, the user interface to a program is the most important part for a commercial company: whether the programs works correctly or not seems to be secondary.
Nothing is a hobby - each discipline is its own world with its own high standards. Of course, every artist has 'minor works' that they do, but I don't think I have any 'minor disciplines.'
The goal in life is to be solid, whereas the way that life works is totally fluid, so you can never actually achieve that goal.
I'm a capitalist. I believe in capitalism. But capitalism only works if you have safety nets to deal with people who are naturally left behind and brutalized by it.
The aim of all commentary on art now should be to make works of art - and, by analogy, our own experience - more, rather than less, real to us. The function of criticism should be to show how it is what it is, even that it is what it is, rather than to show what it means.
I know that my works are a credit to this nation and I dare say they will endure longer than the McCarran Act.
I don't really premeditate what I write my songs about; you know, they just kind of happen, and I can't start writing songs to please a certain group of people or propagate a certain message all the time. That's just not how my songwriting works - it just sort of comes out, and the songs are what they are.
God in His wisdom has decided that He will reward no works but His own.
Most artists, you know, you spend their entire lives learning how to play music and write songs, and they don't really know how the music business works.
Put bluntly, the American church today accepts grace in theory but denies it in practice. We say we believe that the fundamental structure of reality is grace, not works - but our lives refute our faith.
What works in a relationship of very public people is not making the relationship public - keeping it as personal as it can be. It's the only way it is real.
Stockholm is surely an urban planner's dream. Everything works. Everything looks good.
Janine di Giovanni
Word of mouth works now, much more than ever. @-reply every single person.
I always felt that a marriage works best at a farm... where you're together and everybody has clear-cut roles; they have chores, 'you take care of this' and you know. But it's hard.
Chefs think about what it's like to make food. Being a scientist in the kitchen is about asking why something works, and how it works.
Most of the things at the zoo don't look like us. We're one design that works. Our chimp pals sort of look like us, so that's a different take on the same basic design. But fish don't look like us, and giraffes don't. They look a little like us, but not too much. And insects certainly don't look like us, and they work just fine.
When humor works, it works because it's clarifying what people already feel. It has to come from someplace real.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
