You’ve never seen me debate anybody. On anything. Ever. My investment of time, as an educator, in my judgment, is best served teaching people how to think about the world around them.

We must not be afraid to define our enemy. It is Islamic extremist terrorism. I did not say all of Islam. I said Islamic extremist terrorism.

When I walk around my neighborhood, the grocery store, or the farmers market, I don’t see Democrats or Republicans, Progressives or Conservatives.

When you’re young, you don’t have any experience – you’re charged up, but you’re out of control. And if you’re old and you’re not charged up, then all you have is memories.

Strangely enough, when the Sugababes’ ‘Freak Like Me’ went to number 1, which was built around my ‘Are ‘Friends’ Electric’ song, I had another song called ‘Rip’ go to number 1 in the Kerrang TV chart, so I was pulling new people in from very different areas of musical interest.

The most important decision I’ve made in business? The choices of people I have around me. When I first started I brought everybody with me, my homies from the neighborhood, criminals. I just said, ‘Come on everybody, we made it.’ Then I had to realize we didn’t make it. I made it.

The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy.
The only reward in a public life is public progress. You stand back and say, ‘What did I get out of it?’ You look around, and the place is better, and that’s it.

Ten percent of the big fish still remain. There are still some blue whales. There are still some krill in Antarctica. There are a few oysters in Chesapeake Bay.

I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage. But when you start playing around with constitutions, just to prohibit somebody who cares about another person, it just seems to me that’s not what America’s about. Usually, our constitutions expand liberties, they don’t contract them.
I believe Bitcoin is a very convenient way to shop and to transfer money to any account around the world. Governments should work around a framework for the currency instead of putting restrictions on it.
As people want to move money around the world, they’re going to be moving in and out of bitcoin quickly, but they’re still going to own it for some period of time… and the size of that working capital requirement will grow as the global economy grows.
We was living in squats in Battersea when we started with Motorhead. And we lived with the Hell’s Angels in this flat. They were always around.
I teach people that no matter what the situation is, no matter how chaotic, no matter how much drama is around you, you can heal by your presence if you just stay within your center.
Financially, I’ve lost money and made money, but I know my way around financially.
At some point in every person’s life, you will need an assisted medical device – whether it’s your glasses, your contacts, or as you age and you have a hip replacement or a knee replacement or a pacemaker. The prosthetic generation is all around us.
Find a way and make it happen: I’ve always been the type of person who couldn’t rest until I found a way to make something happen. If I couldn’t go around the rock, I’d find a way to go over it or under it or through it.
I was the guy who had been bouncing around the film industry for years, and I’d been lucky if five or 10 people would see my movies, so Captain Jack did a big flip for my career.
No matter what the circumstances, you always enjoy being around guys that you bond with, win, lose, whatever it may be.
To do your best work, you have to enjoy what you do and the people around you.
Love is all around us all the time. Love is the ethers that we swim in. Love is the amniotic fluid of the soul.
I like to walk around Central Park and take in the vibe, have a picnic if the weather is good, and people-watch.
Well being as there’s no other place around the place, I reckon this must be the place, I reckon.
I never did pal around with actresses. Their talk usually bored me to tears.
I’m very comfortable in my skin. Everyone has insecurities – I joke around about wishing I had more cheeks – but I’m happy with who I am. You have to make do with what you have. If you carry yourself right, you can make anything look good.
What’s the subject of life – to get rich? All of those fellows out there getting rich could be dancing around the real subject of life.
My encouragement: delete the energy vampires from your life, clean out all complexity, build a team around you that frees you to fly, remove anything toxic, and cherish simplicity. Because that’s where genius lives.
I am not someone who believes we should build a fence around our country but I do believe there ought to be some fairness with respect to the rules of this globalization.
In the NBA, there’s always a guy who is only around because he can jump. He doesn’t have a clue about the fundamentals. I learn more from the WNBA. They know how to dribble, how to pivot, how to use the shot fake.
I admit to wasting my life messing around with fast cars and motorcycles.
Using social media to hurt and destroy is callous, acted out by cowards hiding behind computers. My advice is to ignore negativity. Focus on the love around.
My childhood was great, honestly. I have all these incredible memories of my childhood. I was an only child. I always had all my cousins around. I had my grandparents around. I had my parents around. I had my uncles around – whatever.
Jesus did not spend a great deal of time discoursing about the trinity or original sin or the incarnation, which have preoccupied later Christians. He went around doing good and being compassionate.
In America the majority raises formidable barriers around the liberty of opinion; within these barriers an author may write what he pleases, but woe to him if he goes beyond them.
From the time that I was in high school, my life really revolved around live theater, so it almost feels genetic.
Although at the time I didn’t realize what was happening, I was unable to make a decision that might displease those around me. For years, whatever directive I may have issued ended with the phrase, ‘If it’s all right with you.’ If I thought I’d done anything to make someone unhappy, I’d agonize.
In order to be the best, you have to be around the best.
If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn’t need to lug around a camera.
When you look at the social cost of carbon – and there is a lot of ambiguity around that – what you also need to be doing is looking at the benefits of carbon and what that has on increased agriculture production.
With my mom and dad around, I became a child yet again.
Being on a film set, you are always around such fantastic people. And I feel like I’ve been lucky. I feel like I’ve worked with the best of the best.
I’m kind of mischievous with good friends around.
It takes a lot of time to be a genius, you have to sit around so much doing nothing, really doing nothing.
I think when you spread the wealth around it’s good for everybody.
People get excited around me and behave differently than they would normally. I don’t feel different from anyone else, except that I drive a racing car round in circles faster than somebody else.
I want to take all the pain that I feel and celebrate and turn it around.
Every investor around the world wants to invest in U.S. markets because they’re regulated and they’re licensed. They’re trustworthy; they have confidence. If you take that away, the global economy will take a hit like nothing else. We want to create that for Bitcoin.
Roads get wider and busier and less friendly to pedestrians. And all of the development based around cars, like big sprawling shopping malls. Everything seems to be designed for the benefit of the automobile and not the benefit of the human being.
I think Clinton, after getting into office and into Washington, was shocked at being bludgeoned. So he spent time trying to be all things to all people – one way guaranteed not to be successful or respected in a lion‘s den. You can’t just play around with all those big cats – you’ve got to take somebody on.
I want to be that Latin girl doing big things around the world.
We cannot afford to spend millions and millions over nuclear arms when there is poverty and unemployment all around us.
Through decentralized cryptography, Bitcoin eliminates the need for banking intermediaries, significantly lowering transaction costs, and could liberate poverty-stricken economies around the globe by providing access to capital to the one-third of humanity that is excluded from the financial world.
I distrust Great Men. They produce a desert of uniformity around them and often a pool of blood too, and I always feel a little man‘s pleasure when they come a cropper.
I am such a sap when it comes to love! I believe in love at first sight all the way. But that’s just the way it happened to me with my relationships. I love the idea of two people looking at each other and electricity flying around them; it’s so romantic, and it’s a great feeling.
When I read things like the foundations of capitalism are shattering, I’m like, maybe we need that. Maybe we need some time where we’re walking around with a donkey with pots clanging on the sides.
Who doesn’t want to fly around in a spaceship?
I’m not a birthday person. Maybe because I don’t like to build expectations around that one day. You never know how it’ll turn out to be.
I feel proud I was part of the old school and still around in the new school.
I love to go down to the schoolyard and watch all the little children jump up and down and run around yelling and screaming. They don’t know I’m only using blanks.
I hate myself in interviews. All of a sudden, you stop and you’re like, ‘Chris, how dare you?’ I don’t live in Darfur. I have both legs. But you can’t walk around all the time being like, ‘I’m so grateful I’m not in Darfur.’
Around the age of 14, I was very discouraged from a coach. It was my first youth club team while playing soccer. She told me at the time that I wasn’t good enough to play on the team, that I would never get into the game.
Set your heights more than what you see around you, see beyond.
You have to prove that you know what you’re doing. You have to have longevity. You have to stay around.
You have to get up and plant the seed and see if it grows, but you can’t just wait around, you have to water it and take care of it.
