One effect that the Nobel Prize seems to have had is that more Arabic literary works have been translated into other languages.
In the Old Testament, we are continually told that our good works are not enough, that God has made a provision. This provision is pointed to at every place in the Old Testament.
My kids probably stay up too late. My wife goes to bed around 3 A.M., and I follow around 7 A.M., but it works.
I want witchcraft so bad that I can't stand it. I have wands in my apartment. And I use them sometimes. I walk into the kitchen with my wand, and I come out with something on a platter and I say, 'See, magic happens.' Works every time.
Art is very tricky because it's what you do for yourself. It's much harder for me to make those works than the monuments or the architecture.
I don't ever go on the Internet. I don't even know how it works.
You want to put out a TV show? If you have the money to do it on your own, by yourself, and you have a TV network, you can do it by yourself. But the nature of the beast is, art needs finance. That's how this industry works. So until the Internet becomes our source of entertainment - and watch it, I believe it will - this is how things go.
Skyping with your spouse works well enough, but apparently it is hard to get the kids to hang out on Skype for long.
What I often do is just think of a completely obtuse thing to do, almost the wrong thing to do. That often works because you start a different approach, something no one has tried.
Newspapers with declining circulations can complain all they want about their readers and even say they have no taste. But you will still go out of business over time. A newspaper is not a public trust - it has a business model that either works or it doesn't.
The amateur tweets. The pro works.
An actor works with their soul and their thought.
As a kid, I always loved serialized books. It's the reason why people love 'Harry Potter.' Serialization is amazing. It works in television. It works in film and it works in books. Especially when you're a young kid, you get attached to these characters.
You launch a site, and you see what works, and you continue to make it better.
I always wear a dinner jacket. I never have this definition of what goes for the morning or the evening or what works for the weekend.
Everything comes out of what works for me.
One works without thinking how to work.
Everything for me is visual. That's just how my head works.
Society has arisen out of the works of peace; the essence of society is peacemaking.
Ludwig von Mises
People negotiate their way around how a human mind works and find blind points. That's how people steal effectively.
Whether it's a double take or a spit take or an extra-long pause before a reaction or a line, I try to be as cognizant as possible about the technical end of it. So I think the physical stuff works easier for me than maybe for others who are more just going on instinct.
Neil Patrick Harris
All I try to do is create an atmosphere that seems comfortable enough, that it removes tension and everyone feels free. If they feel free then behaviour happens, small moments happen and that's what ultimately works the best for me.
I think a lot of times people design restaurants with flash in mind. I think you should design restaurants with function in mind. Make sure it's functional and works with what you're trying to accomplish. Design can come later.
I like to think about stringing songs together like a string of pearls, or a string of beads, but ultimately it has to be stuff that really works with the band, and gives a spin to the older material.
Someone once told me that if you respect a person, listen to their opinion. And if you do not respect someone, then do not listen to their opinion. And that works both ways.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
