If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen.
We seem to have a compulsion these days to bury time capsules in order to give those people living in the next century or so some idea of what we are like.
When you make a drama, you spend all day beating a guy to death with a hammer, or what have you. Or, you have to take a bite out of somebody's face. On the other hand, with a comedy, you yell at Billy Crystal for an hour, and you go home.
I remember that Jack Lemmon, who is one of my favorite actors of all time, says that the day he stops being nervous is the day he should leave the business.
I like to share my life, and spend time with someone I love. That has worked 100 per cent with my wife.
When I am getting ready to reason with a man, I spend one-third of my time thinking about myself and what I am going to say and two-thirds about him and what he is going to say.
Devote each day to the object then in time and every evening will find something done.
I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere to go. My own wisdom, and that of all about me, seemed insufficient for the day.
Every cliche about kids is true; they grow up so quickly, you blink and they're gone, and you have to spend the time with them now. But that's a joy.
I'm from San Salvador. It is small compared to Sao Paolo. We are really slow there. People work half a day and then go to the beach. People have time.
When I was younger, studying classical music, I really had to put in the time. Three hours a day is not even nice - you have to put in six.
Work is the order of the day, just as it was at one time, with our first starts and our best efforts. Do you remember? Therein lies its delight. It brings back the forgotten; one's stores of energy, seemingly exhausted, come back to life.
Time and the hour run through the roughest day.
I think women are natural caretakers. They take care of everybody. They take care of their husbands and their kids and their dogs, and don't spend a lot of time just getting back and taking time out.
I often buy myself presents. Sometimes I will spend $100,000 in one day in a posh boutique.
Time is shortening. But every day that I challenge this cancer and survive is a victory for me.
It is easier to be a lover than a husband for the simple reason that it is more difficult to be witty every day than to say pretty things from time to time.

Most people spend more time and energy going around problems than in trying to solve them.
An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with his fools.
During the day I force myself to at least eat some salads rather than rubbish, and a steak in the evening. In fact, I eat to basically satisfy my hunger. I hardly have the time to appreciate a meal, and I'm everything, but a gourmet.
Don't spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door.
I kissed my first girl and smoked my first cigarette on the same day. I haven't had time for tobacco since.
Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend.
I don't waste as much time at work because I'd rather spend it with my kids.
