It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.
Well, I screwed it up real good, didn’t I?
The real meaning of enlightenment is to gaze with undimmed eyes on all darkness.
To be successful in real estate, you must always and consistently put your clients‘ best interests first. When you do, your personal needs will be realized beyond your greatest expectations.
Coming to Australia, it was just really magical for me. It just had the wow factor of a different sort of place and, more so, just being with a family that wanted to love me and to have me, because I knew back then, before coming to Australia, there was no way of getting back home or finding my real family.
I think badminton has a real legacy with more youngsters taking up the sport. Badminton has done really well in that regard compared to other sports.

Global warming is a real threat to our communities, to everybody, to everything.
To me, the Seventies were very inspirational and very influential… With my whole persona as Snoop Dogg, as a person, as a rapper. I just love the Seventies style, the way all the players dressed nice, you know, kept their hair looking good, drove sharp cars and they talked real slick.
I’m a real man. I can suffer.
I’m looking for the unexplainable connection and spark – real, true love.
If you listen to me, it’s real stories. It’s catchy and something you can relate to.
Pride makes us artificial and humility makes us real.

I would like to see real peace and a state of Israel living peacefully alongside a state of Palestine.
There is a real danger that computers will develop intelligence and take over. We urgently need to develop direct connections to the brain so that computers can add to human intelligence rather than be in opposition.
Real love is a permanently self-enlarging experience.
Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.
In every real man a child is hidden that wants to play.
In formal logic, a contradiction is the signal of defeat, but in the evolution of real knowledge it marks the first step in progress toward a victory.

Real courage is knowing what faces you and knowing how to face it.
I’ve had an unbelievable life. I’ve been very lucky. You do create your own luck too, you know? I never forget where I’m from. Whenever I pass a building site or see somebody digging a ditch, I always think, ‘That’s real work.’
If I receive a phone call from Real Madrid, I won’t answer.
Great ambition, the desire of real superiority, of leading and directing, seems to be altogether peculiar to man, and speech is the great instrument of ambition.
Pro wrestling is not fake; it’s sports entertainment. We go out there and we perform, and a lot of what we do out there is real, but we’re not going to insult anyone’s intelligence – there is a predetermined winner. It’s just the fans don’t know who it is, and that’s what makes it so intriguing.
There’s only one requirement of any of us, and that is to be courageous. Because courage, as you might know, defines all other human behavior. And, I believe – because I’ve done a little of this myself – pretending to be courageous is just as good as the real thing.
Real joy seems to me almost as unlike security or prosperity as it is unlike agony.

I went to boarding school in the country, so there’s no real differentiation between family and friends. I went there from when I was 8 until I was 17 – it was insane. If you earn my friendship, you are my family, and I’ll do anything for you.
I think I’ve got a real love thing going. I love people, I love life, and I love nature, and I can’t see why other people can’t be like that.
In real life, unlike in Shakespeare, the sweetness of the rose depends upon the name it bears. Things are not only what they are. They are, in very important respects, what they seem to be.
The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it, because it’s only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles, wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on.
Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world.

I think, at the end of the day, acting and activism are both about empathy. You’re trying to get people to see other people as real and human. And to care.

Listen, ‘real’ women are the reason the fashion industry exists.
People are apprehensive about finding ‘The Leftovers‘ funny because it’s such a dark circumstance, but I think, really, what the show is about is examining how different people deal with loss. There are elements of humour and levity and irony in that… just like in real life.
Even paranoids have real enemies.
There’s something to be said in favor of working in isolation in the real world.
Avoid popularity; it has many snares, and no real benefit.

Real freedom lies in wildness, not in civilization.
Virtual reality is a technology that could actually allow you to connect on a real human level, soul-to-soul, regardless of where you are in the world.
The real war will never get in the books.

Would a real man get caught eating a twinkie?

It’s time to get real, folks. Hope and change ain’t working. Hope and change is not a solution. Hope and change is not a job.
I think what it takes to succeed remains the same. You have to have a real love of your sport to carry you through all the bad times, you still want to go ski even when things aren’t working. You must have a commitment to work hard and to never give up.
We live in a disposable, ‘cast-off and throw-away’ society that has largely lost any real sense of permanence. Ours is a world of expiration dates, limited shelf life, and planned obsolescence. Nothing is absolute.
Coming up with ideas isn’t hard. The real challenge is finding the time to actually build something and then finding a home for it.
You create a world away from home and make new rooms for yourself. But when you arrive back home in your old rooms, the world you’ve made for yourself ceases to be real. Everything seems to crumble. Anyone who’s been sent away to boarding school can understand that.
I like kids’ work more than work by real artists any day.
I’ve been asked many times if I considered myself a narcissist, so I looked up the real meaning of the word, and I came to the conclusion that indeed I am one. I think of myself as better than other people, not every person, but many, unique and talented, and I aim to success.
A lot of artists think they want anger. But a real, strong, bitter anger occupies the mind, leaving no room for creativity.
In the realm of ideas everything depends on enthusiasm… in the real world all rests on perseverance.
The real cure for our environmental problems is to understand that our job is to salvage Mother Nature. We are facing a formidable enemy in this field. It is the hunters… and to convince them to leave their guns on the wall is going to be very difficult.

America did not invent human rights. In a very real sense human rights invented America.
If you have good songs and a real desire to make music, the next thing to do, instead of approach record companies, is to get yourself a really good manager because then it allows you to focus on your profession of being a musician. Then they can focus on the darker art of the record label and the music industry.
My interviewing style and my approach to things is that, yes, it’s okay to be sincere; it’s okay to be yourself; it’s okay to be real.
