No one knows if Saddam is still alive. They keep showing old footage of him on TV saying that it's live. You know, it's like the same thing we do with Dick Cheney.
And I was victim to that very early in my career, where I would go into auditions, and I'd be wearing a big T shirt, a big baggy T shirt and loose jeans. You know, to try and show people that there was more to me than just that.
I couldn't get as big as a bodybuilder. I tried to put on as much weight in the right places as I could. My weightlifting was impressive for me, but not for some of the guys I see down at the gym.
Before, being a model, it was just a job, and I was making fun of it. But today, I take my career more seriously. The fact that a reader may buy an Armani item because she'd seen it on me in a magazine is very important to me. So much so that I intend to launch my own label.
I remember I read this harsh review about my show, and one of my friends told me that this was the exact same stuff people said about Madonna. And it's like, she didn't care. Madonna just came out and was herself. I respect that a lot.
If you think that by threatening me you can get me to do what you want... well, that's where you're right. But - and I am only saying this because I care - there's a lot of decaffeinated brands on the market that are just as tasty as the real thing.
We all need somebody to talk to. It would be good if we talked... not just pitter-patter, but real talk. We shouldn't be so afraid, because most people really like this contact; that you show you are vulnerable makes them free to be vulnerable.
I've just gone through so much in my life that pulling my top up just doesn't seem like that big a deal.
We've seen in the last half century an incredible shift. This is just an extraordinary time to be alive.
The little people must be sacred to the big ones, and it is from the rights of the weak that the duty of the strong is comprised.
For a war to be just three conditions are necessary - public authority, just cause, right motive.
National film industries tend to move in cycles. In Australia right now, we're on a high, a feeling of potential, which as yet shows no sign of flagging. But the word "industry" is misleading. A small national cinema has no industry in the Hollywood sense.
My shows aren't about trying to save some place, because I don't feel that's the right venue for it. That's my politics right there: Don't bring politics to my shows.
Let the tutor not merely require a verbal account of what the boy has been taught but the meaning and the substance of it:let him judge how the child has profited from it not from the evidence of his memory but from that of his life. Let him take what the boy has just learned and make him show him dozens of different aspects of it andthen apply it to just as many different subjects, in order to find out whether he has really grasped it and make it part of himself,judging the boy's progress by what Plato taught about education. Spewing up food exactly as you have swallowed it is evidence of a failureto digest and assimilate it; the stomach has not done its job if, during concoction, it fails to change the substance and the form of what it is given.
Speak what you think today in hard words, and tomorrow speak what tomorrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradicts everything you said today.
I pretty much try to stay in a constant state of confusion just because of the expression it leaves on my face.
Eight shows a week is daunting, and it can be terrifying. But it just instills such a sense of confidence and growth.
I would love to be a player today. I had the right personality for it.
Every creature is better alive than dead, men and moose and pine trees, and he who understands it aright will rather preserve its life than destroy it.
I think what happened there was just the budget would be too big to build these sets because nothing really exists here in New York of that period; you have to build it all.
Nothing profits more than self-esteem, grounded on what is just and right.
I believe people who go into politics want to do the right thing. And then they hit a big wall of re-election and the pettiness of politics. In the end, politics gets in the way of the business of people.
Martin Luther King Jr. is remembered as our prince of peace, of civil rights. We owe him something major that will keep his memory alive.
I heard that chivalry was dead, but I think it's just got a bad flue.
The U. S. couldn't even get rid of Saddam Hussein. And we all know that the EU is just a passing fad. They'll be killing each other again in less than a year. I'm sick to death of all these fascist lawsuits.
