In between that time, I've done book narrating, you know, books on tape for Dove Audio.
I entered the University of Natal as a preliminary-year student in 1966 and stayed on to June 1972, when I was expelled from the university. I was then doing third-year medicine.
There's never been a better time to change the way you think. Replace every 'I can't' with 'How can I?' It might sound like semantics, but I promise it will bring whatever you want to accomplish much closer to becoming a reality.
My father-in-law saw me at a dance performance. The next day, I got a phone call, and the caller said, 'I'm Dhirubhai Ambani... may I talk to Nita?' I said, 'It's a wrong number' and put down the phone. Then he called again... and I said, 'If you're Dhirubhai Ambani, then I'm Elizabeth Taylor.'
If I start to become a star, I'll lose contact with the normal guys I play best.
Grades don't measure tenacity, courage, leadership, guts or whatever you want to call it. Teachers or any other persons in a position of authority should never tell anybody they will not succeed because they did not get all A's in school.
I've never really been very good at marriage. It's one of my failures. I've tried my best, but I do realise the common denominator is me; it's something I'm doing.
The worst thing you can think about when you're working is yourself.
I'd be lying if I didn't say there were days when I went back and said, 'I wish I'd done this. I should have done that. I handled this the wrong way.' But it's always in the motivation of getting better. I've never once looked in the mirror and said, 'Oh boy, can't do this one.'
Learning another language is not only learning different words for the same things, but learning another way to think about things.
And as I started reaching deeper I realized that most of the blues of that day was done by men. Women just didn't have the nerve.
New legislation has just been adopted by the International Labour Organization on the Worst Forms of Child Labor, such as bonded labour, prostitution and hazardous work.
I'm pretty awesome at making salad dressings.
I love Dodge. I've had a good relationship with these guys.
I do not hesitate one second to state clearly and unmistakably: I belong to the American resistance movement which fights against American imperialism, just as the resistance movement fought against Hitler.
I'm tired of hearing it said that democracy doesn't work. Of course it doesn't work. We are supposed to work it.
That's what I love about Chicago... It is the staccato aspect of the skyscrapers. But the ground is very loose, very relaxed. It makes Chicago far more pleasant than other cities.
I'm not the easiest person to live with. I'm kind of a slob.
A big part of financial freedom is having your heart and mind free from worry about the what-ifs of life.
The biggest public mistake I ever made was that I chose to do 'Criminal Minds' in the first place.
Comedy writing is the hardest, and yet there's so much that's relatable in it.
I don't mind a gut. In fact, I would prefer a guy to have a gut than be too built.
My favorite thing to wear from about first to third grade was a blue t-shirt with an iron-on monkey and the caption 'Here Comes Trouble.'
Neurologists say that our brains are programmed much more for stories than for abstract ideas. Tales with a little drama are remembered far longer than any slide crammed with analytics.
I acted for so many years and sat on a million sets and worked with a million different directors so that is to me some of the best training you can get.
I love my iPhone - I've actually gotten into games, and I find them really relaxing. Don't laugh at me, but I have 'Sally's Spa' - fantastic; 'Penguin Catapult' - it's great; and 'Word Solitaire' is my new favorite.
Frank and explicit - that is the right line to take when you wish to conceal your own mind and confuse the minds of others.
We have a foundation, the Soledad O'Brien Starfish Foundation. We send girls to and through college. We started-off saying we send girls to college, but to do so is not enough. Seeing them through college is the key.
I love comics. I like to do everything I used to do when I was 14-years-old.
