Maybe apart from the World Cup, the Champions League is one of the most important trophies in the world of football.
I wish I had more hair on my head. Maybe if I sprinkled fertilizer on it, it would grow.
I didn’t think, ‘I’d really like to work in TV; maybe I could carve out a niche where I talk to people who are somehow involved in marginal or difficult lifestyles… ‘ It was something I gravitated to very naturally as a subject area, almost instinctively, and somehow turned into a TV career without meaning to.
Maybe the biggest award show of the largest entertainment importer in the world needs an economic incentive to embrace diversity. Indeed, maybe we should boycott the show and pressure advertisers to do the same. Or maybe the Academy should learn the lesson of history and change because it’s the right thing to do.
People will now go to films with subtitles, you know. They’re not afraid of them. It’s one of the upsides of text-messaging and e-mail. Maybe the only good thing to come of it.
Depression is something that doesn’t just go away. It’s just… there and you deal with it. It’s like… malaria or something. Maybe it won’t be cured, but you’ve got to take the medication you’re prescribed, and you stay out of situations that are going to trigger it.
Maybe I just look at things as a humanist: I like looking at people in a realistic way more than looking at them in a positive way.
Icon. What is an icon? When someone is iconic it means they have established a certain kind of legacy possibly, and I think it does come with time. It’s something in the arts, I feel. Maybe not, maybe it doesn’t have to be in the arts exactly. I’m not really sure. But I don’t think you are born an icon.
Influence is a very unpleasant subject and I deal with it in a maybe irresponsible way, which is to really ignore it. It would be a nightmare if we started to really think about it; it would tie our hands, it would tie everyone else‘s hands.
Maybe women get to a certain age and they no longer have a filter; they’re considered crazy people or something.
So when they have Mourinho and Benitez joining the Premiership they should say it’s good for us, maybe these guys have something new to give.
I think that maybe that’s my weakness, in that I don’t know how to do it, so I just do what I do and try to do it as passionately and as well as I can.
You know how you’re in elementary school and the teacher goes around the room and, like, ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ I said, ‘NBA player.’ And she’s like, ‘Well, OK. Maybe pick a real job.’ But I really believed it. I felt like I was meant to be here.
What we figured out was that in order to get everyone in the world to have basic access to the Internet, that’s a problem that’s probably billions of dollars. Or maybe low tens of billions. With the right innovation, that’s actually within the range of affordability.
At home, I am a private person, and I like keeping it that way. Maybe that is why I come out as being guarded about my personal life.
I’ve never lost perspective on who I am. Well, maybe briefly, but generally I’m pretty balanced.
I watched the ‘Food, Inc.’ documentary and was like, ‘This has opened my eyes to the meat industry – maybe I should go vegetarian.’ And my friend told me, ‘Sadie, you’re not gonna last a week.’ But I’m very competitive.
I don’t think too much about age. Maybe if you’re hurting, aching and arthritic, then you think about it a lot. But I don’t.
Your idea of that dish has evolved, and if you’re a cook, you can start thinking in different ways about it, maybe even a different way than I think about it.
We’re lousy at recognizing when our normal coping mechanisms aren’t working. Our response is usually to do it five times more, instead of thinking, maybe it’s time to try something new.
Maybe there is no actual place called hell. Maybe hell is just having to listen to our grandparents breathe through their noses when they’re eating sandwiches.
I know for myself, and maybe I’m weird or whatever, but the whole thing is about constantly redefining identity.
The thing that inspires me most is empathizing with people’s flaws and seeing how they deal with them. That sort of connection you feel with someone when you realize that maybe even the negative things that they’ve said or done are because of insecurities or injuries they’ve endured.
Now, performing is second nature and I love every second of it. It is a very emotional thing when I can’t play a song; maybe I’m hitting on something that I don’t want to deal with. All of it is so personal. It is like therapy.
Sometimes it’s easy to see the negative side of things or question why people bully you. You could think, ‘Maybe they’re right. Maybe I’m not worth it. Maybe I should just quit.’ But that’s when you should fight the hardest. Now I don’t mean fight physically, but mentally. Keep being you.
I’ve never had a bank account in Switzerland since 1984. Why would the Swiss do this to me? Maybe the Swiss are trying to divert attention from the Holocaust gold scandal.
The thing about all my food is that everything is a remembered flavor. Maybe it’s something I had as a child or maybe it’s something I had in Milan, but I want it to taste better than you ever thought.
When I went to university, I was a philosophy major, but because I’m not very bright I chose to study philosophy at a performing arts school, maybe because the philosophy program there wasn’t too rigorous or challenging.
I remember, I used to get off a bus, and if there was someone sitting in the station, I remember thinking maybe they were from Shin Bet and came for me.
I think my favorite movie is ‘Joe Versus the Volcano‘ – or maybe ‘Multiple Maniacs’ by John Waters.
In preseason camp, there are no friends. when newcomers arrive trying to take not only your job, but maybe your best friend‘s job, you work together to try to help each other. Everyone is an outsider until you’re given a uniform.
And maybe I’m a little smarter now than I was before for all the stupid things I’ve done.
Your ups and downs in sports, I think they are as normal as daily life: One day you wake up and feel great, the next day you wake up and feel maybe less great.
I do find comedy difficult. I don’t know why. Maybe I think about it too much. There’s a tremendous amount of pressure to be funny.
I don’t think I’ve ever felt that same kind of peace, the kind of serenity that I felt after acknowledging that maybe I was going to die of this TB.
I’ve never had a message for anyone in my entire life. Except maybe to give out my room number.
I don’t know – the idea of a specific wine paired with a specific piece of music seems a little far-fetched to me. But maybe I just need to be opened to it.
I’ve been lucky enough – well, maybe unlucky enough – to have had a lot of friends who have had their ups and downs. And for an actor, that’s good. Life experience in any regard is good. So I’ve seen a lot and I’ve had my own experiences.
I always start my campaigns early, and I run hard. Maybe it comes from the rough-and-tumble world of San Francisco politics, where it’s not even a contact sport – it’s a blood sport. This is how I am as a candidate. This is how I run campaigns.
Maybe I’m delusional but I’m usually funny. It’s not 100% but I have a pretty good batting average.
For me, in songwriting, I have a route I can take. Maybe there’s some forks, I can go this way, this way. But I know those roads. I still have the experience behind me.
We expect ‘Narcos’ will be an enormous success throughout everywhere in the world and maybe out-index in Latin America, given the Brazilian star and Brazilian director and heavy Latin American cast and that we shot the show entirely on location in Colombia.
I always knew I’d be in music in some sort of capacity. I didn’t know if I’d be successful at it, but I knew I’d be doing something in it. Maybe get a job in a record store. Maybe even play in a band. I never got into this to be a star.
Not trying to be arrogant, but if I walked down the street and a girl saw me, she might take a look back because maybe I’m good-looking, right?
My two interests are spirituality and politics. I would mesh them in some way; maybe try to figure out the politics of spirituality, or the spirituality of politics. Or maybe come up with this really crazy naive solution for the end of civilization.
A lot of times, I don’t want to listen to my stuff, because I’m thinking maybe I didn’t do my best.
I have many regrets, and I’m sure everyone does. The stupid things you do, you regret… if you have any sense, and if you don’t regret them, maybe you’re stupid.
How many crossroads are you allowed to have in life? I seem to have a lot of crossroads. I think maybe I crossed back across the same road too often.
I’ve really loved steampunk for a long time, ever since ‘Wild Wild West,’ and it’s always been a genre and an era that’s fascinated me. But so often it’s set in England, and that doesn’t really resonate with me, or maybe it just seems a little overdone.
I know LeBron will be owning a basketball team or maybe even a football team.
Technically, maybe I learned most of all from George Stevens, and among his movies I learned the most from ‘A Place in the Sun.’ It’s a lesson in moviemaking.
Cosmologists have attempted to account for the day-to-day laws you find in textbooks in terms of fundamental ‘superlaws,’ but the superlaws themselves must still be accepted as brute facts. So maybe the ultimate laws of nature will always be off-limits to science.
If you help a chicken out of an egg, most of the time that bird will die. If you help a moth out of a cocoon, it’ll die because they don’t go through that struggle and maturation. I can give you a fish for the day and you’ll eat a day, but if I teach you to fish, you’ll eat for a lifetime. Maybe even start a business.
I’ve been around a long time. Maybe the people like me.
My father was a politician. My grandfather was a politician too, maybe it’s an innate idea of representing people that we have in our family. I won’t go into politics. I think I can provide the voice for the voiceless through law.
Maybe the press in Spain do not like me because I do not give interviews.
I go shopping maybe three times a year in an intense way. I’m like a man. Can’t spend too much time in a shop.
It’s the first time it’s happened to me and maybe the last. It’s a strange sensation, not normal for me. I can’t remember scoring three goals, even when I was a kid.
You shouldn’t get too close to the truth, because then maybe you stop being funny.
If it’s a cocktail party, I generally make five or six different things, and I try to choose recipes that feel like a meal: a chicken thing, a fish or shrimp thing, maybe two vegetable things, and I think it’s fun to end the cocktail party with a sweet thing.
It had never occurred to me before that music and thinking are so much alike. In fact you could say music is another way of thinking, or maybe thinking is another kind of music.
We talk about feelings. And about sex. And about bodies, and their gratification, violation, repair, decoration, deferred, maybe permanently deferred, mortality. Feelings are a bodily thing, and respecting them is called, is, kindness.
When I used to play nightclubs, you had to play Top 40 or favorite oldies that maybe people could relate to.
I cut off my dreadlocks, but I couldn’t face throwing them away. They were so hard to grow, man. There’s a lot of work goes into those things. Some people keep a diary or a photo album to remind them of their past lives – well, I’ve got hair. Who knows? One day, maybe my grandchildren might want to see it.
I’m not quite that difficult, even though maybe I’m a little bit bossy. But you know, in order to get things done, you do have to be a little bit bossy sometimes or tell people what you really want. Otherwise, things just don’t get done, do they?
One of the criticisms I’ve faced over the years is that I’m not aggressive enough or assertive enough, or maybe somehow, because I’m empathetic, it means I’m weak. I totally rebel against that. I refuse to believe that you cannot be both compassionate and strong.
I’m not sure why I still think of myself as 28 – maybe that’s the point where you start growing up, and then you just feel the same for evermore.
I’m very comfortable with the nature of life and death, and that we come to an end. What’s most difficult to imagine is that those dreams and early yearnings and desires of childhood and adolescence will also disappear. But who knows? Maybe you become part of the eternal whatever.
Maybe if everybody in leadership was a woman, you might not get into the conflicts in the first place. But if you watch the women who have made it to the top, they haven‘t exactly been non-aggressive – including me.
I wanted to be a cool mom. It was hectic. I felt very isolated for a long time, but in the end, it was cool because it helped me and Ninja stick together. If we hadn’t, we would have maybe drifted.
We’re all caught up in circumstances, and we’re all good and evil. When you’re really hungry, for instance, you’ll do anything to survive. I think the most evil thing – well, maybe that’s too strong – but certainly a very evil thing is judgment, the sin of ignorance.
Maybe this world is another planet’s hell.
When you keep things responsible and manageable, you can make some interesting movies that you maybe couldn’t make otherwise.
Politicians of both parties told us that free trade with Asia and Latin America would spur economic growth, and maybe it did somewhere else. In our towns, though, factories continue shutting down or moving overseas.
Some people say that I have an attitude- Maybe I do. But I think that you have to. You have to believe in yourself when no one else does- that makes you a winner right there.
Maybe directors who are more interested in realism and naturalism come from cities, where they see things on their doorstep every day. But growing up as a kid in a very pretty but ever-so-slightly boring town, where not a great deal happened, encouraged me to be more escapist, more imaginative, and more of a daydreamer.
I believe in discipline, so I’m not the right person to cry about weakness and things like this, but maybe I’m not human.
America is not nearly done. We’re only in the beginning. Who knows who we will be? Who knows… what color we will be? It is all something that, maybe, our descendants – if they survive that long – will see.
Maybe I am a bit of a siren.
I’m not that good looking… nobody is that good looking. I have seen a lot of movie stars, and maybe four are amazing looking. The rest have a team of gay guys who make it happen.
Maybe I’m young, but I still have an old school feel to me.
I’m a football guy at heart; maybe I should have played football for a living instead, because I play a lot of football videogames; I’m really into them.
I need theatre for my equilibrium, because in theatre the actors don’t care so much about image, about celebrity – you are more independent. There is not the narcissism, maybe, that you find in cinema.
If you’re understood in maybe, I don’t know, 60% of your soul by your partner, that’s fantastic. Don’t expect that it’s going to be 100%. Of course you will be lonely.
I did a movie called ‘Quicksand No Escape’ with Donald Sutherland and Tim Matheson. I think I was maybe 5. I was really little. Yeah, it was fun. And actually, Felicity Huffman played my mom.
Maybe because I bat aggressively and go for big hits at times, people tend to remember my batting. But I have always done well as a stumper, too.
I think that technology is the best thing that ever happened to mankind. It’s an absurd notion that somehow, ‘My God, what are we going to do when driverless cars come along?’ It’s going to save lives on the road. And maybe, one day, we’ll all be working four days a week and not five or six days a week.
Some people say I have attitude – maybe I do… but I think you have to. You have to believe in yourself when no one else does – that makes you a winner right there.
I want to be remembered as a nice person who didn’t hurt people – except my ex-husbands, maybe.
I think maybe I was a shepherdess in a past life.
I guess there was a little bit of a slight rebellion, maybe a little bit of a renegade desire that made me realize at some point in my adolescence that I really liked pictures that told stories of things – genre paintings, historical paintings – the sort of derivatives we get in contemporary society.
I was always fascinated by engineering. Maybe it was an attempt maybe to get my father’s respect or interest, or maybe it was just a genetic love of technology, but I was always trying to build things.
You were not in control You had no visibility: maybe there was a car in front of you, maybe not.
The day I was born, I knew I was going to act! Okay, that can sound a bit exaggerated, but I knew I want to enter films when I started understanding the world of films and saw my father going on sets. Maybe when I was just a kid.
Trump does magic. Maybe it will be black magic sometime, but he’s an amazing phenomenon.
Maybe some people think that it’s all about the hype, about the fame, but it’s not. It’s all about being the best. It’s all about challenging myself everyday.
There should be a democracy of voices in literature. There are people who live with a kind of striving and with a certain kind of tenderness – it’s not an unusual thing – and maybe that’s not written about enough.
Since I travel so much, my perfect Sunday would start by waking up at home with my partner Inez. We’d have breakfast with our little girl Karmen, maybe in our garden.
Maybe someone will step up, but they don’t have anyone right now.
When I was 14 or 15, I was a really good volleyball player, so I thought, ‘Well, maybe I’ll just get a scholarship to an Ivy League school through volleyball.’ Then I quit when I decided to focus on theater.
I used to be a drummer in a band, and I really loved playing the drums, so I look forward to the right opportunity to do that at some point. Maybe even on TV. Every single live performance I’m doing on TV, I want it to be different and unique.
There are certain things in ‘Twilight‘… As much as I’m proud of that movie and I do like it, I feel like maybe I brought too much of myself to the character. I feel like I really know Bella now. But most readers feel like they know Bella because it’s a first-person narrative.
Maybe other people will try to limit me but I don’t limit myself.
Maybe this is just horrible bad, but I think I’ve had enough successes to where the journey is more important to me now. There’s no guarantee, no matter what. We get one run in life.
Maybe the biggest thing that I’ve learned musically is that anything is possible. Things can work when maybe they don’t seem like they can.
Maybe there is something specifically Scandinavian that comes out of the long, dark winters – you have to learn to laugh at misery, in a way.
As for memes, the word ‘meme‘ is a cliche, which is to say it’s already a meme. We all hear it all the time, and maybe we even have started to use it in ordinary speech. The man who invented it was Richard Dawkins, who was, not coincidentally, an evolutionary biologist. And he invented it as an analog for the gene.
Maybe the key aspect of imposing fear to the opposition is to make them understand that we have no fear.
Cooking is all about people. Food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together. No matter what culture, everywhere around the world, people get together to eat.
Maybe the preoccupation with technological progress has overshadowed our concern with human progress.
I feel like my style’s always been influenced by ‘less is more.’ The coolest styles are kind of simple and classic, like a white T-shirt and jeans. Maybe you have a cool belt and cool shoes, but everything else you keep simple.
Deep Purple is a damn good band and we’ve made a niche in rock ‘n’ roll history. Maybe not a huge one but enough to be very proud of.
I want them to come away with discovering the music inside them. And not thinking about themselves as jazz musicians, but thinking about themselves as good human beings, striving to be a great person and maybe they’ll become a great musician.
When you’re a chill, laid back guy, you maybe have more pent-up frustration, anger, bitterness, than maybe somebody a little wilder would have.
If you start doubting yourself like that, thinking, ‘Am I good enough?’ – maybe there is a reason you’re thinking that.
I am quite quiet: I don’t feel as though I have to express myself with words too often. Maybe I should do more.
There is no medicine maybe for everything, but there is a big medicine which is downforce in an F1 car.
Maybe one day there will finally be an education for electronic music.
Painting and sculpture are very archaic forms. It’s the only thing left in our industrial society where an individual alone can make something with not just his own hands, but brains, imagination, heart maybe.
The stories I’m interested in are challenging ones, and maybe that requires a little bit more of you. I love my job and I want to earn the right to do it every single day.
Songs for me are like a message in a bottle. You send them out to the world, and maybe the person who you feel that way about will hear about it someday.
I don’t think I ever thought of myself as Superman. But there were people who thought of me that way, and maybe I believed them a little.
You don’t quit because you happen to be behind. You want to see how you do. And who knows? Maybe somebody will stumble.
Mum put me in drama classes when I was about 14. I’d been going on about it for some time, so maybe it was a way to shut me up.
As a showrunner, you can never be a ‘maybe.’ When I do movies, there is a lot of, ‘Maybe’ and, ‘Let’s investigate that.’ But for TV, it has to be yes or no.
If you drive right, and your big is standing to the right, dish and keep going to their big – you grab an arm, maybe pull – so that they can’t contest. You only get called for it once in a while.
Kevin Systrom of Instagram used to work for us as a consultant in the early days of Mint. I knew him a long time ago. Maybe I could have gotten in there. But with photo sharing, I don’t know if there’s an obvious business model. I don’t think there’s a competitive, sustainable advantage.
I think one of the biggest mistakes that America has made – and maybe the world because this is, sort of, the core of communism and socialism – is that you can have perfect solutions to social problems like poverty, like crime. You’re not going to eliminate all crime. Maybe you’ll never eliminate all poverty.
I don’t know what else you could do that is more vulnerable – maybe dancing – than singing.
Maybe I’m the baddest chick on the planet, maybe I’m the baddest woman in the Octagon, but I’m definitely emotional.
At one point, I wanted to be a wildlife photographer. I also love to travel, so maybe I’d do travel writing.
I loved reading Grimm’s fairy tales and Hans Christian Andersen, and I loved to dream about other worlds and other lives. Maybe that has something to do with having an incomplete family, being an only child. All I know is I loved to pretend, and all that was in tandem with my wanting to be an actress.
They say I live a fast life. Maybe I just like a fast life. I wouldn’t give it up for anything in the world. It won’t last forever, either. But the memories will.
Maybe I was just born to argue with men.
I decide my future. I decide what I want to do. Nobody else. If I decide this will be my last year, maybe it is. If I decide it will be my last contract, I decide that. Nobody else. So I will decide when the moment is there.
Maybe we are all prospective migrants. The lines of national borders on maps are artificial constructs, as unnatural to us as they are to birds flying overhead. Our first impulse is to ignore them.
I like being myself. Maybe just slimmer, with a few less wrinkles.
Maybe the bike is more dangerous, but the passion for the car for me is second to the bike.
My weaknesses… I wish I could come up with something. I’d probably have the same pause if you asked me what my strengths are. Maybe they’re the same thing.
I discovered that I act because I really love to act. I don’t act because maybe it will get me a magazine cover or that I can get on a talk show.
Maybe something that amuses the Americans is that they are so worried about age, and I’m not at all.
I think people should be allowed to do anything they want. We haven’t tried that for a while. Maybe this time it’ll work.
Gaga came to me, and I just could not find a soul. I come from church; maybe that has something to do with it. I like to get to the soul of a person. I just didn’t feel a soul.
In Rwanda that genocide happened because the international community and the Security Council refused to give, again, another 5000 troops which would have cost, I don’t know, maybe fifty, a hundred, million dollars.
Nothing is easy in cricket. Maybe when you watch it on TV, it looks easy. But it is not. You have to use your brain and time the ball.
I think we felt like we’d done so much as young kids that we didn’t know how to top ourselves. We were like, ‘Is this where it ends? Is this as good as it gets? Maybe we’re done. Throw in the towel.’
Almost everyone seems to worry about something, and yet, we rarely talk about worry as a problem. Maybe that is because worry is so integrated into the way we have come to live and be in the world that we don’t even notice it.
I don’t know if I’m more confident than ever before, because I definitely had confidence when I was starting out. Maybe I have less confidence now that I did then.
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.
People are always selling the idea that people with mental illness are suffering. I think madness can be an escape. If things are not so good, you maybe want to imagine something better.
The problem is there’s still a big kid inside me who likes to have fun. I am passionate about my cricket and I love my family, but I’m also a kid and maybe I need to grow up… And maybe I don’t.
At one point, people are going to have to realize that maybe I know what I’m doing.
People ask me if I would like my children to play tennis, and I’m, like, ‘Hmm. Maybe not.’ And that’s a bit strange.
What we reliably find is that people’s perseverance scores are actually higher than their passion scores, and I think it really does get to the fact that working hard is hard, but maybe finding your passion is even more difficult.
Maybe it was the home tutoring, or the late start to formal schooling, or an overly cautious and protective upbringing, but in any case, I never became a talkative person. As an adult, I am not always comfortable in social gatherings with small talk. I must have inherited my father’s gentle nature.
From an evolutionary standpoint, human consciousness has not been around very long. A little light just went on after four and a half billion years. How often does that happen? Maybe it is quite rare.
I enjoy construction and the process of building things, so maybe I’d be a developer of some kind – residential and commercial. Because I produce a lot of television now, I enjoy building things from the ground up, whether it’s a physical structure or a show, and seeing them and realizing them.
Peter Parker is probably the most relatable superhero – maybe ever – because he goes through something that basically everyone has to go through. Whether it’s puberty or talking to girls or doing homework, he does it in such a human way. That’s why he’s such a beloved character: because so many people can relate to him.
Look around at things that just aren’t getting done. Maybe there’s a project you could tackle. Maybe there’s an issue that always gets back-burnered for other priorities. Challenge yourself to take on those difficult assignments. They’re learning opportunities, and you have a chance to change something for the better.
Our schools should get five years to get back to where they were in 1963. If they’re still bad maybe we should declare educational bankruptcy, give the people their money and let them educate themselves and start their own schools.
I was striving to become an engineer, but something happened that made me think, ‘Maybe I can make games instead.’
When I was maybe 5 or 6 years old, the neighborhood girls would sit on the stoop and sing. I was known as the kid who had a good voice and no father.
I’ve learned to relax more. Everybody feels pressure in what they do, maybe mine is just a little different because there doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to accomplish what I want to.
People say, ‘Well you know the economy‘s bad, so China consumption will be low. No, totally different. You Americans love to spend tomorrow‘s money, and other people’s money maybe… We Chinese love to save money.
I had no fear ’cause it seemed everyone in the audience always applauded whatever I did. Course, maybe it was because I always seemed to know everyone in the audience.
Although Ronald Reagan was somebody I disagreed with on most ideological things, he was a friend of mine, and he was a very, very likable man. Ronald Reagan, for instance, was maybe more able to get the very rich to do the right thing sometimes.
I was always a giver by nature. I wanted to make sure the person next to me or maybe even the person I don’t know didn’t go without if I could help it. That’s always been in me.
My mom decided that she wanted to put the mirror ball trophy on the coffee table in the center of our living room. When people walk in, it’s kind of like, ‘Uh.’ It’s a little weird. Maybe we should put it in the corner or something.
To be one, to be united is a great thing. But to respect the right to be different is maybe even greater.
I am okay being friends with an ex. You don’t become enemies. Everybody has their own journey and they leave when the time is over. Maybe, they are only meant to be with you for that particular time.
All I can be is myself. I feel comfortable in my own skin, which I think is maybe what translates.
Maybe I’m a dreamer, but I think the ordinary guy has just as much right to say ‘This is a good song‘ as somebody who is in the music business.
I happen to be a pessimist, and maybe that’s a good thing because I don’t stop to smell the roses – which is not a good personal thing. I don’t stop and enjoy those moments… Always on to the next and never in the moment.
I don’t get off on romantic parts. But I often think if I had had my dental work done early on, well, maybe.
Maybe Christmas, the Grinch thought, doesn’t come from a store.
I wish my name was Brian because maybe sometimes people would misspell my name and call me Brain. That’s like a free compliment and you don’t even gotta be smart to notice it.
A line will take us hours maybe; Yet if it does not seem a moment’s thought, our stitching and unstitching has been naught.
When I’m out, maybe I’m looking at the fried chicken, but I know I need to order the grilled. But I’m still from the country. I love my fried food and my neck bones and all that, too.
When I’m feeling down on myself or not feeling good about who I am, or maybe something happened and I’m feeling depressed, I eat to fill that void. Afterwards I’ll beat myself up about it. I regret doing it, but I’ll turn around and do it again.
I’m not really conservative. I’m conservative on certain things. I believe in less government. I believe in fiscal responsibility and all those things that maybe Republicans used to believe in but don’t any more.
I was easygoing in terms of being adaptable in my social life. But maybe I suffered a personality change in the mid-’60s and became more dedicated to things involving work because it had become successful in some way.
I think I pose some problems for Georges that he maybe hasn’t seen in the past.
I went to NYU thinking I was going to make a ‘Die Hard‘ sequel, or maybe action and genre films for the studios, but I ended up falling in love with personal cinema.
I hope by the time I’m 30 to have a husband and maybe a baby.
As I’m getting older, I feel like maybe I need to grow up a bit.
It’s maybe a better thought to change the perception of an accent than to avoid it all together.
It take many a year, mon, and maybe some bloodshed must be, but righteousness someday prevail.
There was a darkness, a melancholy, that people had trouble accepting. Maybe now, it would work better.
People say, ‘Well, why don’t they get another job, why don’t they pick themselves up by their bootstraps?’ Well, the people that say that probably have the kind of jobs where they don’t work that hard, so maybe they could have another job.
Maybe one of the only things I do well: I cook like a maniac! I would be a chef if I weren’t an actor.
Maybe the nails are a little stubby and gnawed on, but I definitely do not have man hands.
I took three years off. I differentiated myself from the industry. Found my identity – sort of… I haven’t graduated yet. I’m not legitimately educated yet, but maybe one day.
In the fashion world, you have to make clothes to sell. You have to make clothes for the press. You have to make clothes for yourself. What I mean is, everything is an obligation. But a writer? A pure artist? Maybe he doesn’t make one lira – but he does what he wants.
I don’t like flirting, and when I love someone, I always give everything, maybe too much. And then you have to work at it all the time. I mean, the first months are always great, but afterwards it becomes hard work. It’s not as passionate and crazy.
In the ’80s, when I was watching Bond films in the cinemas, Roger Moore was the man. I’ll always have a soft spot for him. His Bond films were light-hearted and silly as well as action-packed. For me, this spoke volumes. It meant that, someday, maybe someone like me with a whacky sense of humour could be James Bond.
Sometimes you climb the mountain, and you fall and fail. Maybe there is a different path that will take you up. Sometimes a different mountain.
I don’t know what to do or where to turn in this taxation matter. Somewhere there must be a book that tells all about it, where I could go to straighten it out in my mind. But I don’t know where the book is, and maybe I couldn’t read it if I found it.
We need people who dream impossible things, who maybe fail, sometimes succeed, but in any case who have that ambition.
I don’t like talking unnecessarily, and my communication skills are zilch. I just can’t converse with people. Maybe it’s because of my stuttering or stammering, but I’m not confident of talking with people. I only talk to very close friends and family.
More than a half, maybe as much as two-thirds of my life as a writer is rewriting. I wouldn’t say I have a talent that’s special. It strikes me that I have an unusual kind of stamina.
I still feel 29. Maybe I should act my age more, but I just can’t.
People say maybe we have a soul and chimpanzees don’t. I feel that it’s quite possible that if we have souls, chimpanzees have souls as well.
For whatever reason, maybe it’s because of my story, but people associate Livestrong with exercise and physical fitness, health and lifestyle choices like that.
The failure of the United Nations – My failure is maybe, in retrospective, that I was not enough aggressive with the members of the Security Council.
We are in a position of financial and social power, and we could be agents of change in our society. Without pretension, I believe we could be a nice little gardener who takes care of the garden, and hopefully our neighbor will do the same. Then, maybe we’ll achieve a better world.
I do love a good dark guy. Maybe a beard – some sister scruff?
One of the biggest mistakes that founders can make is doing something that maybe seems like a great idea, and seems like a good use of time, but actually isn’t measurable, significant, incremental growth.
People say they are inventing electric cars. Well, where is the electricity coming from? Flowers? Maybe someday. But what is available now is oil and gas.
I don’t like the idea that in music, clothes, taste or anything, we are limited to a certain style, because we need to maintain an identity, maybe between some subculture group. Hopefully, all those walls break down, and music is just music.
To me, writing is remembering something funny that happened, or maybe something I said seven years ago.
I think I was afraid of being a mother for many reasons. I wanted to be a good mom, and I was fearful at one point of even working at the national level because I was afraid that I would disappoint a child or I wouldn’t be as ready for a big position as maybe I should have been when I came to Fox.
When I fight for a cause and I know it, I fight for it. I’m not scared to say something. I think some tennis player, maybe they’re a bit scared, whatever is the reason. Definitely, some athletes, they fight for big cause. They speak it loud. I think it’s great. It’s great for sport. It’s great for life.
My challenge when I came back was to face the young talent, dissect their games, and show them maybe that they needed to learn more about the game than just the money aspect.
I’ve never gotten to do romantic comedy like most of the girls. Maybe because I’m fit, people assume that I’m not funny?
I am pretty expressive with my emotions. I don’t think something and say something else. I don’t know if it’s something I should be proud of or to watch out for. Maybe I am not politically correct. I don’t know if that’s a crime.
When it all boils down, it’s about embracing each others’ stories and maybe even finding that synergy to collaborate for the common good.
I was always interested in maybe being in Formula E as I said many times when I was still racing in F1.
Maybe utopianism is my form of religion in a world without God.
Maybe there’s a perception of me as grumpy old bugger who suffers from depression. It’s a total misconception. I don’t think of myself as any grumpier than the next person. I’m not even grumpy first thing in the morning.
The short hair fits my personality more. I think maybe, with long hair, it was a role – I was playing dress-up a bit.
I’m probably an actor that tends to, instead of putting things on, think about it more in terms of taking away what’s not in the character, until I’m left with what is. If that makes sense. That’s probably a particularly American way of working, but maybe not. The end of any movie is a readjustment.
Maybe stories are just data with a soul.
Growing up near Scarsdale, I should have had at least one Jewish girlfriend. Maybe at some point it’ll happen.
Age isn’t a barrier to playing the bass, and I’ve definitely improved over the years, although maybe I’m not as flash as I once was. But looking back, I can’t imagine a life without a guitar.
I have the ability to get code done, but I’m impatient, and it’s scrappy as a result. Maybe that helped me with ‘Minecraft,’ as it came quickly. But, well, at some point, I’d like to actually become a good programmer.
I go to make art as who I am as a person. The fact that I am a woman comes into play maybe in the kinds of things I’m interested in or in the way I structure a canvas.
Monk‘s gone, and House is gone. Maybe I can pick up where they left off.
You have to sound sad first of all, then maybe later you can sound good.
If I had my career over again? Maybe I’d say to myself, speed it up a little.
I really think we should pass a law in every state, I don’t care whether it takes the independence away from an old person or not. You shouldn’t be driving a car if you’re over the age of 80. Maybe even less than that.
If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place.
I don’t have many Hollywood friends anyway; I thought with my ability I didn’t need to make those kind of relationships, but maybe I should have done. Might have made my life easier!
What I’ve said before, only half in joke, is that everybody in Ireland is famous. Or, maybe better, say everybody is familiar.
Maybe subconsciously I feel I was meant to work hard for a living.
Dedicating your life to something, dedicating time to something, ending up achieving it and maybe doing better than that. Me personally, that would be a Stanley Cup. That’s something I’ve dreamed of my whole life. I think that’s why every hockey player at this level plays.
I’ve always maintained that you can be sexy with your clothes on. Sexier maybe.
Maybe black and white is the best medium for landscapes, I don’t know.
At the end of the day, if you’re not spanking your child and instilling in them the ideas of selflessness, servitude, and wisdom, you’re probably looking at a future P. Diddy in the making (maybe even a Keith Olbermann – take your pick).
There is a fascination with the idea that one has ‘seen someone else do something’ before one can achieve it. Maybe that’s true in some cases, but clearly it is not a requirement. I knew what I wanted to do.
Maybe I’m a glutton for punishment, but I enjoy anything where you get to flex your acting muscles, you get to really go for it.
When you’re young, the temptation is maybe to think, ‘More is more.’ But a lot of the time less is more.
It’s inevitable now, because everyone is a superstar, even if they’re just an average player, and maybe that was part of the process set in motion when I signed that contract in 1994.
To me, the best love songs work on two – maybe three – different levels, where you’re talking about the person who you’re right opposite, and all the people like that.
A doctor can save maybe a few hundred lives in a lifetime. A researcher can save the whole world.
I can say that on the record ‘Transit of Venus,’ there’s maybe one or two songs that actually do come from my heart, but a lot of songs have been written just for radio and for fans, you know, to relate to.
Maybe I’m just a psycho, and the stage is a better place to go than either the loony bin or somewhere else.
Can anyone seriously imagine a society without stable families? Maybe we should raise all the kids in state orphanages.
Feelings such as loneliness, longing or love are sometimes hard to put into words; maybe that’s why we all love music, because it resonates with something we can’t share.
I think with certain artists you want to hear their album… and then there are other artists who I like where maybe it’s more about the single. I don’t think there is going to be one way that everything works.
With Fountains Of Wayne, I almost always start with lyrics – maybe not the entire lyric, but I almost always need a couplet or something, and then I work from there. With Ivy, it’s much more about the atmosphere and the vibe.
I think I have let ego get in the way sometimes – the pendulum swung pretty strongly. I was maybe a little overconfident at one point in my time, and then I went way the other way and thought I wasn’t capable of anything.
Working 24 hours a day isn’t enough anymore. You have to be willing to sacrifice everything to be successful, including your personal life, your family life, maybe more. If people think it’s any less, they’re wrong, and they will fail.
Acting never was about the money for me… Maybe in 10 years, I’ll be able to appreciate the fact that I am financially stable and independent and I don’t have to make bad choices. I can be very picky.
The whole idea of a stereotype is to simplify. Instead of going through the problem of all this great diversity – that it’s this or maybe that – you have just one large statement; it is this.
Maybe if I’d studied writing instead of anthropology, I’d be more sensible. You know – pick a genre, follow the rules, stay in the box – but let’s face it. Sensible people don’t major in anthropology.
I’m a middle child, so I have middle-child syndrome. With a middle child, you always have to take in everything and adjust and maybe compromise a little bit so you’re able to see both sides of an issue. I’m also a Leo – I love astrology – so that affected me, just being a lion.
We would never accept a prime minister saying, ‘Well, maybe I’ll intervene and use a trade issue as a link to an independent investigation into criminal activity.’
I’m open to making any kind of music, or maybe making no music ever again. That’s also an option, always. Who knows what’ll happen.
God bless IVF because it’s never too late to conceive any more. However, having said that, I have to point out that going through IVF is a gruelling procedure; maybe that’s why only a woman can go through it!
I saw ‘The Exorcist‘ at the cinema when I was quite young, maybe 14. When I went back home, my mum and dad weren’t in, so I had to wait for them on the main road. I were too scared to enter the house.
We build our legacy piece by piece, and maybe the whole world will remember you or maybe just a couple of people, but you do what you can to make sure you’re still around after you’re gone.
We Montanans take pride in our low crime rate and believe honest people can disagree without being disagreeable. Maybe extremist groups believe they can find a home in Montana because of our easygoing ways.
I think in a lot of romantic comedies it ends with a kiss, and I feel like in modern day relationships, and maybe just my own experience, it starts with a kiss and then all sort of falls apart and then comes together. You’re texting. You’re wondering what’s going on. There’s no definitions, there’s no labels.
We’re at maybe 1% of what is possible. Despite the faster change, we’re still moving slow relative to the opportunities we have. I think a lot of that is because of the negativity… Every story I read is Google vs someone else. That’s boring. We should be focusing on building the things that don’t exist.
Maybe climate change is a threat, and maybe climate change has been tarted up by climatologists trolling for research grant cash. It doesn’t matter.
A lot of the main characters in horror movies are outsiders as well, so that outsider syndrome reverberates within horror fans and geeky collectors. It’s kind of a rallying call that brings fans and collectors together who are a little socially retarded, maybe.
The only thing that might have annoyed some mathematicians was the presumption of assuming that maybe the axiom of choice could fail, and that we should look into contrary assumptions.
I think all of us certainly believed the statistics which said that probably 88% chance of mission success and maybe 96% chance of survival. And we were willing to take those odds.
There are many things that, if I have to relive, maybe I will do it another way. But I would not like to look back and think what I have not been able to.
I think social media is… really cool in the sense that I don’t think that a writer like me would’ve found a readership if maybe Instagram wasn’t there.
I did Broadway shows. And I started realizing that this is actually how I’m going to make my living. So maybe I should try to do television and film and make a better living and get an occasional residual check so I can pay a mortgage someday.
You know, maybe I was just born in the wrong time, but I love all things romantic. Puffy understands that. For my last birthday, he covered my hotel room floor with rose petals and had flowers and candles all over the room.
Robots will someday, or maybe, wake up. They may be really smart. They may be as creative, smart and capable as human beings, and fully conscious, and self discerning with free will.
The only people who distrust the cops are crooks. They’re not out there just harassing innocent people. Maybe sometimes they do. But there’s no inherent situation where cops are deliberately out there harassing people.
Sometimes I’ll watch a music video of a great performer like Beyonce and try to follow her choreography. Yeah, maybe I look ridiculous, but dancing gets your energy up a lot better than running on a treadmill or pedaling a stationary bike.
Being a big black man in China in the mainland, walking down the street, you have everyone looking at you, ‘Basketball?’ They don’t really see a lot of us around, maybe on TV, so they’re just looking.
A friend of mine jokes that I have a painstaking royalty complex. Like maybe I was a duke in a past life.
‘The L-Word’ was such a great show because of the amazing writing and characters, but maybe because it was such a new concept, people couldn’t pick up on it, but I think it was down to the dynamic characters and how well done it was.
I’ve been on social media for quite a long time, maybe because I’ve been sending out nutrition information.
My parents are very cool and wildly supportive – maybe almost too much. I want to tell them to chill out.
In sport, there is always room for improvement. Whenever I see my innings against the West Indies or Australia, I think, ‘Maybe, I could have done this better or should have changed that.’ See, cricket is a skill game, and one can always improve upon the impact one has on an innings.
Maybe these kids are just too young and too dumb to know about the first 13. Maybe they can’t comprehend that the Braves have only won one World Series in those 13 years.
If I regret leaving City, I’d regret leaving Madrid, I would regret Arsenal, and I would regret maybe even Metz, where I started off. So I have no regrets in life; life is too short to start regretting things.
We’ve already been reincarnated about a million times, maybe. It doesn’t make sense any other way.
If I could choose any car in the world, I’d get a Lamborghini, but I think that’s a bit too much money. I’ll start off with maybe a V8 or something.
As film-makers, it is very important for us to find common ground between cultures, and maybe that’s less the case for politicians who benefit more from finding the conflicts and differences between us.
I want to be a superhero. Maybe I’ll be a bartending superhero who shakes martinis to save the world.
I guess maybe someone at ‘Dexter’ saw the ‘Mad Men‘ stuff and thought, ‘He can do this.’
Maybe I don’t have the most common kind of motor neuron disease, which usually kills in two or three years.
Look, my body fat percentage has maybe gone up a percent or two, but it’s not gone up that much at all. I would say a lot of it has been attributed to muscle. It’s a lot of muscle.
Some guys, first pitch of the at-bat gets called a strike – maybe it’s a ball off or below their knees, and it gets called a strike – and then the next two pitches, they swing at balls in the dirt, and all of a sudden, they’re yelling at the umpire about that first pitch. You just swung at two balls in the dirt, buddy.
I often get asked if I think I’m ever going to build something useful, and maybe someday I will.
Maybe we’ve been brainwashed by 130 years of Yankee history, but Southern identity now has more to do with food, accents, manners, music than the Confederate past. It’s something that’s open to both races, a variety of ethnic groups and people who move here.
Working with Pharrell was a dream… Collaborations like that are where you come up with sounds that maybe you wouldn’t have found otherwise.
I detest jokes – when somebody tells me one, I feel my IQ dropping; the brain cells start to disappear. But something is funny when the person delivering the line doesn’t know it’s funny or doesn’t treat it as a joke. Maybe it comes from a place of truth, or it’s a sort of rage against society.
When I was a kid, I thought I would be an entrepreneur and maybe at some point go into law school.
I think I got an Instamatic camera when I was 8 years old, and ever since then, I’ve liked to record things. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s just to kind of try to leave some kind of record behind.
Maybe life is random, but I doubt it.
I think that maybe if women and children were in charge we would get somewhere.
If they had rankings in baseball, maybe I would have been able to do the math and figure out my chances of being a professional baseball player versus a tennis player. But that was the decision-maker for me, I just thought I was better in tennis.
The last book I read was Noam Chomsky on anarchism; maybe I will become an anarchist.
There’s a time and place for everything, but as I get older, I like finding those human moments and really connecting. Maybe I’m not as cool as I once was.
There are occasionally eureka moments – off the top of my head, maybe Darth Vader’s theme, you know, the imperial march.
I think there is a dissonance between how much is expected of you as a young person, whether you are a man or a woman: you are supposed to go to university; you get a master’s degree, maybe two, particularly if you come from the middle class.
I know I’m more on television, and I’m more recognisable than maybe even the players because they run and train, but I just stand there, and my face does all these funny things that everyone can see all the time.
I have found life an enjoyable, enchanting, active, and sometime terrifying experience, and I’ve enjoyed it completely. A lament in one ear, maybe, but always a song in the other.
I don’t know about a lot of things. I read a lot, but a lot of it just passes through me. I don’t retain much. I am kind of dumb that way. Or maybe ‘I am a simple man,’ is a better way to say it.
I think recharging is important, absolutely. Every now and then, you need maybe a couple of weeks to just chill out and let your emotions balance themselves out a little bit.
I don’t dwell on success. Maybe that’s one reason I’m successful.
I’m just tired of the unethical people, the scumbags, all that. Maybe that’s how all businesses are run, but in MMA, I’ve been in the UFC, Legacy, and Bellator. The UFC was the best, and even they didn’t treat you that well.
I don’t think you should ever say, ‘This is the last time‘. Music isn’t like that. You’ll be sitting there not wishing to get onto a stage again for maybe two, three, four, five months, or maybe a year, then suddenly you’ll wake up and feel like you’ve got to do it again. It’s in the blood, and I never say never.
On films, you have the liberty of working out the details, the psychology, taking maybe more risks and takes than you can in television just because you can’t be figuring things out on the day.
‘Yes’ is the mother of all positive words, next to ‘love.’ Maybe ‘love’ is the father of all positive words.
Love at first sight is probably for stupid people, but maybe I’m just cynical.
I always feel like I have to keep going. You can sit back and say, ‘Maybe I can stop.’ But then you’re yesterday, and I love tomorrow.
Maybe I don’t take myself so seriously any more. And I don’t care how I’m judged. I’m past all that.
I don’t know, maybe I have a sixth sense or something.
I will direct one day. I need some more life experience before I feel like I can do something like that comfortably. It’d be a feature, it’d be something maybe that I had in writing as well.
The energy necessary to create a wormhole or to wrap time into nuts is incredible. It’s not for us. It’s maybe for our descendants who have mastered the energy of this technology. So if one day, somebody knocks on your door and claims to be your great great great great granddaughter, don’t slam the door.
Time travel and teleportation will have to wait. It may take centuries to master these technology. But within the coming decades, we will understand dark matter, perhaps test string theory, find planets which can harbor life, and maybe have Brain 2.0, i.e. our consciousness on a disk which will survive even after we die.
I did plays in college, and I have half of a play. But I’m kind of stuck. I keep revisiting it so maybe it will move somewhere. There’s something about plays where you can feel that sense of artifice at any moment.
At the very least we should be given a bit of credit and a little bit of space, and maybe the media should think we could help them discover why English teams do not win European competitions.
Usually when I start a new project there’s a fear of the unknown; maybe it’s a band I’ve never been in the studio with before. People are so different. It’s almost like you need to go through the process, discover and unlock what it is that makes that band that band. And a lot of times they don’t know it.
I’m not an optimist. I’m a realist. And my reality is that we live in a multifaceted, multicultural world. And maybe once we stop labeling ourselves, then maybe everyone else will.
When we were starting off as kids, just the idea of maybe going to do this as a living instead of getting what we thought was going to be a boring job, was exciting.
This is something you have to accept in football. Someone will say you are overpriced, but I did not think about it. Maybe I was overpriced, but I believe in my quality and want to get better. If you know what you can do for your team, it becomes no problem, and you don’t even think about it.
I am hoping that by breaking barriers myself, I can inspire a whole new generation of people to think ‘you know what, maybe I can, not just run a country, maybe I could start a company, maybe I could do something in my own local community to make a positive change.’
I’m a radical environmentalist; I think the sooner we asphyxiate in our own filth, the better. The world will do better without us. Maybe some fuzzy animals will go with us, but there’ll be plenty of other animals, and they’ll be back.
Best thing that’s happened this year? Maybe Hostel. It was a great experience. I loved it.
I see myself maybe being, like, a movie producer or screenwriter or a novelist or a scientist or mathematician.
Can you say that in 20 years people would still use the iPhone? Maybe not. Maybe we’d have a new product or something more innovative. What I can say today is that, in 20 years, I’m quite convinced that people will still drink Dom Perignon.
If I give you the right conditions to work, and I put you in a beautiful place, where you feel a little bit better about yourself because you know your work is being used for something greater than producing a profit, maybe you will get more creative; maybe you will want to work more.
If a man is truly in love, the most beautiful woman in the world couldn’t take him away. Maybe for a few days, but not forever.
My husband gave me a necklace. It’s fake. I requested fake. Maybe I’m paranoid, but in this day and age, I don’t want something around my neck that’s worth more than my head.
I think I did a pretty good job – particularly when I was racing with Hakkinen. It was maybe the first time that I have been challenging with the big boys, and I really enjoyed it.
When I’m told absolutely no, it’s a definite maybe.
If I can help a kid feel more comfortable in their skin because they’re struggling with maybe the things I struggled with in high school, that’s great.
Maybe I was accepted to Harvard only because of my tennis skills, since I definitively had no great academic achievements. I was 17 and only thought about surfing and playing tennis. I had almost never left Rio de Janeiro and had never been to the United States.
What I did when I identified Mike Webster’s thing, I showed it to other doctors. We all agreed that this was something new, but we had to give it a name. This was not dementia pugilistica. Maybe we could have called it dementia footballitica!
I used to get the feeling, and sometimes I still get it, that sometimes I was fooling somebody; I don’t know who or what, maybe myself.
Being Mormon is a big part of who I am, and I try very hard to live the right way, but I don’t know that I’m an example. I hate to say, ‘Yes, look at me. I’m a good example of being Mormon.’ I want to be the best person I can be, so in that aspect, maybe I’m a good example.
Failure is easy to handle because once you fail, the options are very simple… like, ‘Try something different,’ or, ‘Maybe if you do the same thing, do it in a different way.’
A guy and a girl can be just friends, but at one point or another, they will fall for each other… maybe temporarily, maybe at the wrong time, maybe too late, or maybe forever.
My first ever job of doing additional writing for Hans was ‘Batman Begins‘, so that’s going back I don’t know, are we at 13 years now? I was his assistant for maybe ten years, a long journey.
Flawed Design’ is a song on the record and it explores why people feel a need to present themselves maybe not necessarily as what they actually are. It seems like in society, a lot of people want to be or try to be perfect.
I had good coaches and mentors. They helped me a lot, and I trusted them when they tapped on my shoulder to move to the next level. And maybe I’ve been smart enough to always say yes more than no when I’ve been proposed a new and challenging jobs.
I have a point to prove. Sometimes you have to repair things, and maybe I have a little bit that I need to repair.
I’d rather be a could-be if I cannot be an are; because a could-be is a maybe who is reaching for a star. I’d rather be a has-been than a might-have-been, by far; for a might have-been has never been, but a has was once an are.
When you have kids, you see life through different eyes. You feel love more deeply and are maybe a little more compassionate. It’s inevitable that that would make its way into your songwriting.
Maybe it’s naive to say, but it almost seems like, in the past, people tried to sell you something you would actually need, like a hammer or a broom or a toothbrush. But now there’s this notion that they can sell you anything. And all they have to do is convince you that you need it.
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.
It’s weird. You find a safe place in someone who you feel like maybe they can’t judge you because they don’t know you.
Just be what you are. And I try to be my best self and be what I am and knowing what I am and be satisfied with that. And if people don’t know it, maybe they’ll eventually know it.
I’m just kind of odd. There are dark forces in the world, and if you pay attention to what’s going on around you, you end up incorporating it into the storytelling. Maybe it’s some aspect of myself that’s coming through that people are seeing, that I am in fact a quiet psycho.
I think high self-esteem is overrated. A little low self-esteem is actually quite good. Maybe you’re not the best, so you should work a little harder.
My second wife Bonnie Owens and I worked together after we divorced for a period of maybe 20 years. And I managed to stay friends with another wife. And then there’s one that I don’t mess with. Everybody’s got one of those.
The impression sometimes created among the public is that scientists are working away in their labs, and maybe they’re not always thinking about the implications of their work. But we are.
At 19, you’re not really thinking about the habits you have. I wasn’t. Maybe your study habits? But not your life habits.
I have a wonderful psychiatrist that I see maybe once a year, because I don’t need it. It all comes out onstage.
I had a lot of conversations with my family, my close friends, with my pastor, with God, and kind of came to a revelation that maybe I should be honest with myself about who I am and let that person – this woman who has lived inside me for my entire life – finally have an opportunity to live.
When you go to college the first couple years, and you kind of get beat around, you kind of think about, ‘Maybe if I went to pro ball, it would be a little bit better.’ Now that I look back on it, I made the right choice.
The thing to do with mutual funds is to buy a couple of decent ones, set up an investment plan and then never, ever think about them again, except maybe once a quarter or so when you take a peek at your statements to make sure that you have not accidentally been buying the Fidelity Peace-in-the-Middle-East fund.
Maybe I’m an elitist, but I don’t feel like I am.
My father never wanted me to be a writer. He didn’t – he came to terms with it maybe two years before he died. He wanted me to be a weather girl because when I was growing up, there were very few Latinas on television, and in the early ’70s when you first started seeing Latinas on TV, they would be the weather girls.
The relentless pursuit of perfection has been my problem over the years. It’s maybe held me back.
It’s true that most American citizens think of themselves as living in a democratic country. But when was the last time that any Americans actually sat down and came to a collective decision? Maybe if they are ordering pizzas, but basically never.
I love reading interviews that we’ve done and seeing how we come across, and thinking, ‘Mmm, maybe we shouldn’t say that again.’
My dad was a theater actor, so he had an agent, and he brought me into his agency when I was maybe four years old. That was how I started. I started modeling, and it progressed from there.
I try to imagine how we would live if we didn’t know we were going to die. Would we live our lives differently? Less careful, maybe? Less scared? These are beautiful things to think about and build a song around.
Beauty lasts five minutes. Maybe longer if you have a good plastic surgeon.
I can be the nice family man at home, and then when I go to the gym, maybe sparring with someone, I switch into beast mode. It ain’t pretty.
