Secrecy, once accepted, becomes an addiction.
Almost everyone will find something in our services worth paying for.
Definitely, it's a fear of failure that drives me.
I used to sketch - that's the way I thought out loud. Then they made a book of my sketches, and I got self-conscious, so now I don't do it much.
Everyone has to do their part, too. No one is disconnected. And everyone has to improve their skills, take care of their own health to the extent they can and contribute their time and talents to the community and country.
Who has words at the right moment?
I feel in me the vocation of the Priest. I have the vocation of the Apostle. Martyrdom was the dream of my youth, and this dream has grown with me. Considering the mystical body of the Church, I desired to see myself in them all.
I just want to be known as a very normal person and be treated as that and be able to walk down the street like anyone else.
The kiss always gets a hell of a reaction.
I don't know anything about life, but everything about cinema.
I think there's something about wanting to stand in the spotlight. I think the ball is a spotlight, for example, and I think they want to stand in that. I a lot of times see - LeBron is a guy that vacillates between wanting to do that and then wanting to get somebody else involved.
I've kind of banned myself from motorcycles. I've had broken ribs, broken shoulder, wrists, leg, broken collarbone - and it was all from motocross or rugby. All of my injuries have come from outside of sailing.
My favourite part of writing a book is thinking up the ideas, and that can start a long time before I actually sit down at my desk.
There are many critics who think the megachurches thrive on people who enjoy dramatic Sunday services with fine music but don't wish to become very 'religious' on a day-to-day basis - that the megachurch appeal is a mile wide and an inch deep.
I just don't want to be famous. I feel like there's a lot of sacrifice in that I'm not really willing to make.
I went to a motivational training course once, a course of self-discovery, and I found out after a week that my fear - it was not a fear of not being accepted - was a very violent fear of failure.
If I had my career over again? Maybe I'd say to myself, speed it up a little.
If I had to work a 9 A.M. to 5 P.M. job in the public service, I'd freak out.
I felt that chess... is a science in the form of a game... I consider myself a scientist. I wanted to be treated like a scientist.
The actor's role in the community is quite unlike anyone else's. Businessmen, for example, don't take their clothes off or cry in front of strangers in the course of their work. Actors do.
The body says what words cannot.
I work for the Global Fund for Women, an organization that is actively supporting women's rights groups in 160 countries around the world.
I graduated a the top of my class in the '84 Olympic Games; I won a gold medal.
The most I ever ate? In one sitting? Maybe four big plates of fried chicken, biscuits, chitlins, gravy. Then dessert. Apple pie, sweet potato pie. My mother cooked that stuff, good Southern food, and when I was 300 pounds, I never missed a meal.
But by all this I am not deterred, for I have seen, I have heard, I have felt.
My inspiration is always what I think my fans want to listen to. I often write about social problems. If I'm not going through it or I haven't gone through it, I want to make sure it touches someone. That's what I base my music on.
Notorious B.I.G. was one of my favorites. I started getting into hip-hop around the Bad Boy era.
The temptations are great to simply retreat to the domain of private life and give up on our public problems.
I don't digitally manipulate my images, because I am interested in the spontaneous act of creating images without forethought. I know many artists start with an idea in mind, and then they put it on paper. I don't work that way.
