Sexuality is a big issue, but there are others – how much you commit to a relationship, to social obligation, to honesty and being honest with yourself.

The big thing for me is just continuing to be a beacon of hope. And showing people that nothing is impossible.

I fear those big words which make us so unhappy.
To many people, ‘biodiversity‘ is almost synonymous with the word ‘nature,’ and ‘nature’ brings to mind steamy forests and the big creatures that dwell there. Fair enough.

I’d like to congratulate myself, and thank myself, and give myself a big pat on the back.
My father, Oliver Hynes, was an educator. He was originally just a teacher, a very good one, but then he was promoted to be in charge of education for the entire area.

Big pay and little responsibility are circumstances seldom found together.

It’s always there.

A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them.
I have beautiful, beautiful clothes, designed by my bachelor boy son, Kenny. Kenny has a big following as it is, and even Lady Gaga has asked Kenny to design dresses for her.

My job as a DJ and a producer is just to have a big encyclopedia in my head.
I think the only way I could make something fun and big is if I don’t expect it to be.
I’m a big believer in picking your boss, not the job. Great people create great jobs.

People like me sound like a lot of big cannons.

I believe in believing. My coach John Kavanagh is a big atheist, and he is always trying to persuade people to his way of thinking, and I think, ‘What a waste of energy.’ If people want to believe in this god or that god, that’s fine by me; believe away. But I think we can be our own gods. I believe in myself.
