The 'New Yorker' asked me to shoot a story on climate change in 2005, and I wound up going to Iceland to shoot a glacier. The real story wasn't the beautiful white top. It ended up being at the terminus of the glacier where it's dying.
I needed a concept of God that worked for me, and I wound up giving my life to Jesus Christ. I thought I was always going to have to wear skirts over my knees, not be able to listen to music, and have no personality. Fortunately, it's so completely opposite.
A definite highlight was doing 'The Brothers McMullen.' Shooting that movie was such a joy - and then we wound up winning the Sundance Film Festival. That big-break moment is visceral. It happens once in a decade, maybe once in a lifetime.
Sparky Lyle threw me a slider, and it wound up in the seats. We won, and it was a memorable moment.
A writer's main tool is his memory - his own memory, the collective memory of his people. And the strongest memory is the one that is created by a wound to the heart.
I danced growing up. I had two friends of mine that, actually, one of them wound up dancing with Alvin Ailey.
Lisa Ann Walter
I started getting into Internet technologies and computers. I wasn't especially interested in being a musician, but I wound up finding my way back to being interested in music through computers.
It's become fashionable these days to say that the writer writes because he is not whole, he has a wound, he writes to heal it, but who cares if the writer is not whole; of course the writer is not whole, or even particularly well.
Sometimes a great wound or concussion of the head, especially which happens by falling headlong from an high place, brings a prejudice and weakness to the animal faculty, dulling the understanding.
I initially got a job at Disneyland through a friend who was working there. He said, 'You would make a great princess there,' and that I should audition. So I just went on a whim to audition, and I wound up getting a job as Belle, from 'Beauty and the Beast,' at Disneyland. I did that for about a year and a half.
I have to admit I can be pretty high strung and tightly wound.
I almost became a political journalist, having worked as a reporter at the time of Watergate. The proximity to those events motivated me, when I wound up doing philosophy, to try to use it to move the public debate.
I started my teenage years singing in churches across America, and finally wound up on a big stage.
I have heard of many tragic cases of walking, talking, normal children who wound up with profound mental disorders after vaccines.
You have to give a wound time to heal and think of other people's feelings.
People talk about the pain of defeat, but I think defeat has a lot of value. I think the wound of victory can be even more damaging than defeat. Very few people really know how to win.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

I remember being inspired myself when smaller films, whether it's 'Beasts' or 'Winter's Bone,' wound up in the Oscars lineup.
I've had more misrepresentations than I can handle, and people have told the wickedest lies about me. A lot of them have taken their frustrations out on me, and I don't like that because it can wound. Not necessarily me, but those around me. Journalists can be so bad.
For me, it is just the total experience - from the time I first started as an assistant coach until I wound up at the University of Texas for 20 years.
I always wanted to be an anchorman, but after college I wound up working behind the scenes at CBS News for 10 years.
Oh, I have a few gay couples in my life, including Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his amazing partner Justin, actually. Those two get me into a little trouble every once in a while. Jesse is a very good old friend of mine, which is how I wound up on 'Modern Family' in the first place. We try to do dinner and have wine together as much as we can.
And I met Paul Simms while I was making 'It's Pat', and he later wound up casting me in 'NewsRadio.'
There's a lot of room for error with a wound in the rear. It's a wide target.
I'm never comfortable at theatre opening nights. If it's my own production I'm too wound up to be able to enjoy the performance and too wary to enjoy the event as a social occasion.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
