I don't want anything from Cuba. I want them to be free and enjoy the things I enjoy.
I have found that my fan base is a bit above average when compared to the common horror fan.
Am I overjoyed when somebody says, 'Oh, we're going to do another Jane Austen?' No - because there's never anything in it for me.
I can go in front of an orchestra. I can go in front of an audience. But if you see me walking through an audience in the reception or through a lot of people, I'm still shy.
My first book deal was actually for a textbook - 'Judo and You' - that I wrote while teaching at Temple University. A scout for Kendall-Hunt came looking for someone to write the book, and even though it wasn't a course I was teaching there, I agreed to write it.
Growing up, there wasn't much emphasis on being nice or naughty. As a family, there wasn't much discipline. It was more relaxed at home, which I'm grateful for.
Actually, I don't think there's anyone that represents the artists, except the artists themselves.
I think a lot of what I've done is about people feeling as if they are part of the world but also not part of it at the same time. I don't know whether that's from being a gay kid, but I definitely think that resonates with me.
I decided he'd changed so much that a whole new book was required and that book actually I can say so was the first to say that the marriage was in trouble and the Prince didn't like at all and my book was being serialized in the Sunday Times over five weeks.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I think it's really important to remake things. If you never remake the classics, no one would know Shakespeare.
They're mostly done before we went into the studio, although I do like writing in the studio.
I like men in suits. Men in suits I think are so sexy. But I love men in suits who own their own businesses. That's even sexier... I just love a guy who has his own thing going on and believes in it.
Mere longevity is a good thing for those who watch Life from the side lines. For those who play the game, an hour may be a year, a single day's work an achievement for eternity.
The best part about poker is there's no down side.
Economies typically do not function well in hyperinflation. The real value of government debt might disappear, but the economy is likely to disappear with it.
Painting and music were the only things I worked at industriously and faithfully.
I think people could justify labeling me if they saw a pattern in what I do, but right now that's impossible.
I keep a very low profile in Switzerland. There are only about 2,000 people in the village I live in, so it's a quiet town.
The cars we drive say a lot about us.
We are so excited about life and about every song.
Anyone who hates children and animals can't be all bad.
I never get writer's block, but I do have days where I crawl under the duvet.
What I think is happening in China is that they are recognizing mobile infrastructure is actually a critical piece of national infrastructure.
My unrealized ambition is to tend my vines, produce wine, and work like an artisan. I dream of rediscovering the old traditions and customs of wine growing, not necessarily to deny the technology which we have today, but to harness it and work in harmony with nature.
'Last Man' is different from anything I've ever seen or done.
People have interpretations of what you're supposed to be like. If you're unattractive and overweight, you must have a great personality. If you're attractive, then you must not be the nicest person. People are always taken aback that I'm easygoing but not necessarily stupid.
I'm convinced that the infantry is the group in the army which gives more and gets less than anybody else.
True wealth is not of the pocket, but of the heart and of the mind.
New rumors that Saddam Hussein is planning to flee to a castle in Libya with 10 billion dollars. Now President Bush doesn't know whether to nuke him or give him a tax cut.
