The main three components are the blues, improvisation – which is some kind of element that people are trying to make it up – and swing, which means even though they’re making up music, they’re trying to make it up together. It feels great, like you’re having a great conversation with somebody.
You can teach somebody how to be a brain surgeon, but you cannot teach them how to walk on a stage and make people laugh.
I’ve got my own businesses I run every day and I like to think I’m a nurturer rather than a firer, but the reality is, if somebody continues not to succeed and do the right thing for the business they lose the job because they are affecting the livelihoods of others.
One thing that somebody told me is that leadership is a lonely role – some people can do it, and some people can’t.
Any artist, the work you do, if it’s a painting or if it’s a performance, you hope it translates to a common denominator with the people that they see something in their own life in there. Or they see something in somebody else’s life. That’s what’s fun about sharing art.
Things don’t turn up in this world until somebody turns them up.
When you say that you are a race man, it means that you embrace the entire black community regardless of the hue, whether somebody is very light and could pass for possibly white or someone is very dark.
It’s easy to work for somebody else; all you have to do is show up.
I wasn’t really too hyped on religion. I don’t really believe in a religion like that. I just believe that there is a God. There’s just somebody up there that listens to me, and they can show me better if I talk to them and build a relationship with them.
One reason you should not use web applications to do your computing is that you lose control. It’s just as bad as using a proprietary program. Do your own computing on your own computer with your copy of a freedom-respecting program. If you use a proprietary program or somebody else’s web server, you’re defenceless.
There is so much vulgarity in the everyday, that when somebody has the pretension to do something extraordinary for the community, then you have to suffer.
I will not have my life narrowed down. I will not bow down to somebody else’s whim or to someone else’s ignorance.
I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.
With DNA, you have to be able to tell which genes are turned on or off. Current DNA sequencing cannot do that. The next generation of DNA sequencing needs to be able to do this. If somebody invents this, then we can start to very precisely identify cures for diseases.
At the end of the day, somebody someday is going to say something about you. At least you can look back and say you lived the way you wanted to.
Don’t be afraid of missing opportunities. Behind every failure is an opportunity somebody wishes they had missed.
I feel like somebody who just is very understanding is my biggest thing – timing is a major issue for me – but also funny! Obviously I want someone really cute and fun and fresh for good Instagram pictures and that just makes me really happy.
We all have fundamental beliefs of one sort or another, and it is very threatening if somebody is saying they’re wrong.
Are you going to back down to somebody? If not, you’re giving yourself a chance.
I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.
I was the kind of Jew who’d be in a bar, somebody would say it’s Yom Kippur, and I’d go, ‘Really?’
I’m not a trend person. I don’t want to look to my right and see somebody in the same thing.
If somebody is gracious enough to give me a second chance, I won’t need a third.
Trust your gut. You know yourself, so don’t let somebody else tell you who you are.
Somebody said the key to life is to work hard, play hard, rest hard, and I’ve pretty much adopted that.
Oh, I don’t think Tom Sowell would tell anybody to join the administration. That’s not his style. But I think his attitude has always been if it had to be done he’d prefer me to do it than somebody else.
If somebody has a bad reputation on the internet or if they have a really good reputation on the internet, I don’t care. I want to meet said person and make up my mind for myself, and then go from there.
When I hear somebody say ‘Life is hard’, I am always tempted to ask ‘Compared to what?’
It’s better to use a curse word than to hurt somebody else, I find.
If I were running to be somebody, there are a lot of easier sombodies to be. After all, running against the incumbent governor of your own party in your home state is not the next logical step in a political life.
Every single thing you see on-screen came out of somebody’s creativity. It doesn’t exist. Nature didn’t deliver it to us. Everything had to be dreamed.
There’s only so much you can do, but if somebody doesn’t give you a chance there is nothing you can do.
There’s great power in deference. You ask somebody ‘what’ or ‘how’ questions. People love to be asked how to do something. They feel powerful, and from a deferential position, you’ve actually granted that power, and you’re the one that now actually has the upper hand in the conversation.
I just don’t think it’s very dignified to ask people to like you. You can just wind up being somebody’s ottoman.
Life is short, and, once somebody is gone, they’re gone.
It’s always nice to have somebody on your side.
God didn’t give up on me. I am somebody in God’s eyes… Let me be a prime example of how I’ve been through the storm and the rain, and I made it over.
You can tell on-stage when a joke’s starting to lose its pop. It doesn’t mean people don’t want to hear it anymore; it means I don’t want to do it anymore. Because I want to move on to something that has a knee-jerk reaction just like you get when you tell somebody a joke that they’ve never heard.
It’s funny, sometimes life just comes down to bringing a little bit of light to somebody when you can.
I don’t think you ever stop giving. I really don’t. I think it’s an on-going process. And it’s not just about being able to write a check. It’s being able to touch somebody’s life.
We use a term called ‘empowerment through empathy.’ And ‘Me Too’ is so powerful, because somebody had said it to me – right? – and it changed the trajectory of my healing process once I heard that.
One morning, about four o’clock, I was driving my car just about as fast as I could. I thought, Why am I out this time of night? I was miserable, and it came to me: I’m falling in love with somebody I have no right to fall in love with.
I’m not the best person at putting words together. I can’t give you the melody. But I might inspire somebody.
You don’t have to use aggression to squash somebody. You have to use your brain.
Don’t believe everything you read in the press. If somebody starts with me, I try to mess them up, but I don’t look for trouble.
Even the finest actors will have great difficulty showing somebody’s loneliness. To put an actor on a chair and ask him to do nothing and yet tell the viewer everything about the character, it’s a difficult task.
I think of myself as somebody who, in a moment-to-moment way, I’m quite happy. But I think I am a bit doubtful and wary of true happiness, and, like a lot of my friends, there’s been a good degree of self-sabotage.
What nicer thing can you do for somebody than make them breakfast?
If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded.
I think marrying somebody who’s not a celebrity, it just takes a lot of the pressure off.
These things bring you to reality as to how fragile you are; at the same moment you are doing something that nobody else is able to do. The same moment that you are seen as the best, the fastest and somebody that cannot be touched, you are enormously fragile.
I knew I was going to be somebody.
My best background is, like, smash opponents. I all the time go forward. I all the time try to take down somebody. Make him give up. This is my style, you know. This is what I do all my life.
I saw Kuwait many times before the war. I remember it as a beautiful place, full of very nice people, and it’s a tragedy to see that somebody could set out to deliberately destroy a country the way the Iraqis have.
It’s a delight to trust somebody so completely.
I get criticized for being me. I’m enjoying life, and people see it as me not being serious. Not taking the game seriously. You shouldn’t hate somebody for being themselves, for enjoying themselves.
If your happiness depends on what somebody else does, I guess you do have a problem.
I’m an activist. I’m a proud activist. So I want to be someone who is pro-black and pro-Africa and still be somebody that has positive influence.
But I think it’s intoxicating when somebody is so unapologetically who they are.
I was so young when the Killers started. I was 21. I’m proud of those songs, but there’s no way I would write ‘Somebody Told Me,’ as I get older. Especially after having kids.
Sometimes, when democracy has to fight with autocracy, what can be done? We have to fight; somebody has to.
There may be another life, and if there is, the best way to prepare for it is by making somebody happy in this.
So I’ve seen life as one long learning process. And if I see – you know, if I fly on somebody else’s airline and find the experience is not a pleasant one, which it wasn’t in – 21 years ago, then I’d think, well, you know, maybe I can create the kind of airline that I’d like to fly on.
When I record somebody else’s song, I have to make it my own or it doesn’t feel right. I’ll say to myself, I wrote this and he doesn’t know it!
Nobody likes being broke. As somebody who’s had to live out of a 1982 Datsun, trust me. I know. I also understand that the first step to improve your situation is to fix the problem that landed you there in the first place.
I advise everybody not to save: spend your money. Most people save all their lives and leave it to somebody else. Money is to be enjoyed.
No matter who you are, you’re gonna feel alienated by somebody.
The thing that makes my generation The Greatest is our ability to hang out. We’re spectacular at it. If you take somebody from my generation and sit them on a couch and bring them food and plumbing, they’ll sit there and talk to you about anything you want until the day you die.
A writer is somebody for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.
Any image I have, it’s just what I do, but it comes off as being very pretentious. When you’re a bit in the public astigmatism, anything you do seems like you did it so somebody would see you do it, like showing up at the right parties.
The thing with food is that you can give 20 people the same recipe and the same ingredients, and somebody’s going to make it better than somebody else, and that’s the creativity of it. It’s like music. You could have a bunch of people playing the same piece, and somebody’s gonna play it better.
You can’t be satirical and not be offensive to somebody.
I have been considerably picky for somebody who’s not a movie star, and sometimes I get frustrated.
Everyone has people in their lives that are gay, lesbian or transgender or bisexual. They may not want to admit it, but I guarantee they know somebody.
If a star or studio chief or any other great movie personages find themselves sitting among a lot of nobodies, they get frightened – as if somebody was trying to demote them.
You hit somebody with your fist and not with your fingers spread.
Just as I wouldn’t expect a gynecologist to have a debate with somebody who believes in the Stork-theory of reproduction, I won’t do debates with Young Earth creationists.
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen, it said ‘Parking Fine.’
I have a sweet tooth. I love dessert, and if somebody makes me one, I’m going to have it.
Sometimes I just need somebody to tell me a bunch of ideas I don’t like, so that I can figure out what it is I actually want.
I think comedy is a good way to help people change their minds. I think that if you’re laughing and getting a message across, it’s a lot easier than when somebody is screaming in your face.
Everybody’s out to get something from somebody. ‘Gold diggers’ doesn’t just mean money, it can mean time, it can mean feelings. It can mean anything when you’re taking and not giving. When people don’t know how to reciprocate.
We relish news of our heroes, forgetting that we are extraordinary to somebody too.
If you don’t care about somebody, you don’t even bother to fight with them.
You cannot steal somebody’s intellectual property. Law and justice protect.
I feel like if you’re in a bad situation, and then you see somebody that’s even in a worse situation, you feel for that person.
One false word, one extra word, and somebody’s thinking about how they have to buy paper towels at the store. Brevity is very important. If you’re going to be longwinded, it should be for a purpose. Not just because you like your words.
I love to play games. Anything that is competitive. I love to play darts, shoot pool, any video game or board game, anything like that I am all about. For me is more about spending time with somebody, hanging out and enjoying yourself.
Show me a person who has never made a mistake and I’ll show you somebody who has never achieved much.
The term ‘perjury trap‘ means interviewing someone for no underlying crime and no other purpose except with the hope that the person forgets something, or another witness remembers things differently. Either way, somebody gets charged with perjury.
We all need somebody to talk to. It would be good if we talked… not just pitter-patter, but real talk. We shouldn’t be so afraid, because most people really like this contact; that you show you are vulnerable makes them free to be vulnerable.
My parents are always a great litmus test. Based on the amount of shrieks my mother gives when we’re out in public, her constant shock when somebody comes up and says something nice.
Respect goes a long way when you carry yourself a certain way and show manners when you first meet someone. If you do that, then it’s hard for somebody not to like you.
If you look at the developments in the international scene over the past many years, we haven’t been able to resolve many problems and many crises, because we have approached them from a zero-sum perspective. My gain has always been defined as somebody else’s loss, and through that, we never resolve problems.
Cold calling is about developing social skills and getting used to rejection. We are constantly selling something to somebody.
Somebody has to stand when other people are sitting. Somebody has to speak when other people are quiet.
I love people who have goals. Somebody who’s passionate about life and does their own thing.
Like people coming up to me like, ‘Nobody ever told you that you look like Lil Baby?’ But I’ll be like, nah. Or like, somebody told me that. I’ll never just say, it’s me.
When somebody says something stupid to me, I usually alleviate it with laughter and humour. I make light of it to educate people on why it’s inappropriate.
Somebody like a Piggy or a Kermit, there needs to be several versions and so there will be several of them.
Somebody like Bowie was so interesting because when you got him off stage, he was like a businessman. But on stage, he was just dazzling. It was like watching butterflies grow.
When I got religion, I found some work to do to benefit somebody.
A man can fail many times, but he isn’t a failure until he begins to blame somebody else.
Anytime in radio that you can reach somebody on an emotional level, you’re really connecting.
I try to approach reading in front of millions of people as I would reading in somebody’s living room.
Doo-wop is the true music to me, man. Doo-wop was what nurtured me and grew me into who I am, and I guess even when I was in school, the teacher probably thought I had ADD or something every day, because I’d be beating on the desks, singing like the Flamingos or the Spaniels or Clyde McPhatter or somebody.
You make due with the time you have here. Hopefully when you pass on, somebody can look back and say, ‘Wow, they made a difference in some kind of way.’
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.
Everybody is responsible for their own actions. It’s easy to point the finger at somebody else, but a real man, a real woman, a real person knows when it’s time to take the blame and when to take responsibility for their own actions.
I don’t want flowers or candy or anything like that. I just want somebody to say, ‘Wow, you’ve done a great job.’
When I found out that there was eight Presidents before George Washington, I wanted to smack somebody.
You can always tell about somebody by the way they put their hands on an animal.
There is nobody so irritating as somebody with less intelligence and more sense than we have.
If you are ever on stage, and it feels as though the audience is not laughing at the right points or are not quite as engaged as you’d hope, you have to remember there is always somebody who might be falling in love with this world and having an epiphany. I was that person.
Somebody hits me, I’m going to hit him back. Even if it does look like he hasn’t eaten in a while.
We judge on the basis of what somebody looks like, skin color, whether we think they’re beautiful or not. That space on the Internet allows you to converse with somebody with none of those things involved.
Hold those things that tell your history and protect them. During slavery, who was able to read or write or keep anything? The ability to have somebody to tell your story to is so important. It says: ‘I was here. I may be sold tomorrow. But you know I was here.’
Slang is really coded talk. I can say a few things, in front of somebody, that only people who know what I’m saying are going to pick up on.
Whenever somebody comes up with a good idea, there’s somebody else who has never had a good idea in his life who stands up and says, Oh, you can’t do that.
When I hear somebody sigh, ‘Life is hard,’ I am always tempted to ask, ‘Compared to what?’
When somebody is making a movie about your life, that’s different. A show is a live performance. Things are going to go wrong. You are going to get away with things. A movie is indelible. A movie is through a microscope.
There’s something about somebody’s first screenplay: it’s like their whole life experience has kind of been bottled into it. They bring so much richness to it. And not that they won’t do that for their next script, but there is something about their first experience and the time that it’s been floating in their head.
Every time I am looking into the depths of somebody’s brain, I’m thinking, ‘This is what makes a person who they are. That structure contains memories. Everything that they’ve ever experienced is right in there.’
The terrorists that we are up against today do not rely upon cell phones and SAT phones and emails. They rely on couriers. You cannot intercept what a courier is telling somebody.
I don’t want to be somebody else.
Somebody’s gotta win and somebody’s gotta lose and I believe in letting the other guy lose.
News is what somebody somewhere wants to suppress; all the rest is advertising.
I always love somebody who makes me laugh, who’s fun to be with.
If somebody asks for my opinion, I tell them my opinion, whether it’s what they want to hear or not.
Film music should have the same relationship to the film drama that somebody’s piano playing in my living room has on the book I am reading.
If you’re playing somebody who is not you, then you can imagine that you are that person. You can feel like he feels, move like he moves, look like he looks – in your own mind.
The worst thing to call somebody is crazy. It’s dismissive.
I think what makes a good actor‘s director is somebody who understands what I’m doing and is respectful of it, but who also has a vision and is directing me toward their vision in a way that feels productive.
As somebody who happens to be gay, I particularly resent that minorities are being encouraged to be fragile and bitter.
I still have my first paycheck. It was just, I think, a dollar or two that I got when I started as a songwriter with BMI, and I had some songs there that I had through the company, and in the mail I got this big old check for, like, a dollar and a half or something. Somebody had recorded one of my songs.
Anytime somebody shares a personal story with me during autograph signings and someone comes up to me and shakes my hand and says thank you and I’m just like, wow. The fact that I can have an influence over somebody; it is heartwarming, it is the goal.
I tell the kids, somebody’s gotta win, somebody’s gotta lose. Just don’t fight about it. Just try to get better.
Never say ‘no’ to pie. No matter what, wherever you are, diet-wise or whatever, you know what? You can always have a small piece of pie, and I like pie. I don’t know anybody who doesn’t like pie. If somebody doesn’t like pie, I don’t trust them. I’ll bet you Vladimir Putin doesn’t like pie.
In some way, people believe that if you are permeable, if you are a good listener, you don’t have the quality of somebody with a firm attitude. This is what, fundamentally, I got from my mother.
Something is worth what somebody will pay for it. Nothing else, nothing more, nothing less.
I really like how the characters always has to go through some type of long journey that’s like a crazy struggle. And these anime shows give women power. She’s always the queen or somebody that you cannot beat – I love that.
To think that the new economy is over is like somebody in London in 1830 saying the entire industrial revolution is over because some textile manufacturers in Manchester went broke.
My father told me once not to expect anything from anybody so I wouldn’t be disappointed. If somebody was nice and did nice things for me, I should be overjoyed, but I shouldn’t go through life expecting it, which is very good advice.
With Ronald Reagan in the White House, somebody had to look out for those who were not so fortunate. That’s where I came in.
I’ve dealt with a lot of people with bad intentions. Just because somebody has a following does not mean that they are a good person or a good friend.
You hear about quality time a lot but I really think that quantity time with a person is really what strengthens a relationship. That’s when you really get to know somebody. You get to know their strengths and their weaknesses and that brings you closer. That’s what ‘Time Is Love’ is all about.
I think America right now is looking for somebody who appeals to every faction.
None of us got where we are solely by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps. We got here because somebody – a parent, a teacher, an Ivy League crony or a few nuns – bent down and helped us pick up our boots.
When somebody takes a child from their native culture, that is in itself an act of aggression.
Information helps you to see that you’re not alone. That there’s somebody in Mississippi and somebody in Tokyo who all have wept, who’ve all longed and lost, who’ve all been happy. So the library helps you to see, not only that you are not alone, but that you’re not really any different from everyone else.
Any committee is only as good as the most knowledgeable, determined and vigorous person on it. There must be somebody who provides the flame.
I’ve been compared to a lot of redheads. Here’s the thing though: you can look nothing like somebody, but if you both have red hair, all of a sudden people think you look exactly the same.
I’m somebody who can laugh even at myself. That happens now and again, when I’ve made a mess of really simple things.
Sometimes it’s a form of love just to talk to somebody that you have nothing in common with and still be fascinated by their presence.
You’re not going to scare me into being somebody I don’t want to be.
A film is made in somebody’s head – out of their determination to do it at all.
If you try to please everybody, somebody’s not going to like it.
Michael Jordan changed so much in basketball, he took his power to make a difference. It’s so much going on in music right now and somebody has to make a difference.
In my real life, I’m a Black Lives Matter social justice activist, and so it was incredibly interesting to me to play somebody coming from the totally opposite side, whose beliefs are as deeply entrenched – as deeply felt, and given as much gravity, as I give my beliefs.
I didn’t have to be somebody I wasn’t coming into the league. I had a great foundation from my family.
Nothing pleases me more than when somebody who was awe-inspired to be working with me realizes I’m just another schmuck that they’re bored of hanging out with on a set. I love that moment. I like it when that persistent illusion is smashed.
When I show up to act in a movie for somebody else, I just want to be nice and helpful and do what they want because I know how difficult it is to make a movie. I don’t want to cause any problems. So you show up and do your job, and I think if a director understands that, you don’t make a lot of demands.
A lot of beefs in the music industry are caused from miscommunication and just not really understanding what’s going on, having people in your ear saying this is what somebody did, or this is what somebody did to you.
One thing I think celebrities shy away from is exposing the reality that we’re all the same. Somebody’s not more important because they have a Bentley or a big house or a famous boyfriend or plastic surgery – we’re all the same.
If you don’t know your own value, somebody will tell you your value, and it’ll be less than you’re worth.
I’m just an individual who doesn’t feel that I need to have somebody qualify my work in any particular way. I’m working for me.
There’s such a thing as good stress and bad stress. Bad stress is when somebody else stresses you out, and good stress is when you stress yourself out over something you want to accomplish, which makes you want to perfect it.
If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.
If you hear somebody say something absolutely horrendous about their own life, in quite a flippant, offbeat kind of way, when you meet people clearly trying to be strong and brave, the ones who are really good at it are the ones who break my heart the most.
I understand now that the vulnerability I’ve always felt is the greatest strength a person can have. You can’t experience life without feeling life. What I’ve learned is that being vulnerable to somebody you love is not a weakness, it’s a strength.
In Afghanistan, you don’t understand yourself solely as an individual. You understand yourself as a son, a brother, a cousin to somebody, an uncle to somebody. You are part of something bigger than yourself.
I just talk just to talk. I like to see what other people think. There’s some things somebody tweets me every day where I’m like, ‘Wow, I never thought of this issue that way.’ It starts great conversation with people who I would never get a chance to actually communicate with.
It was a big deal to me to play characters and feel things and connect to somebody in a fake world.
Every known fact in natural science was divined by the presentiment of somebody, before it was actually verified.
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.
I preach there are all kinds of truth, your truth and somebody else’s. But behind all of them there is only one truth and that is that there’s no truth.
The way I write my shows, every character is its own organic thing. No character has a life at all until I see it played by somebody.
The brain sure as hell doesn’t work by somebody programming in rules.
Look at the evidence and to be willing to question your own truths, and to be willing to scrutinize things that you hold dearly because that way, that transparency, that self-awareness, will protect you from ever becoming somebody that whose beliefs somehow make them have myopic vision about what could be.
Play fair. Don’t hit people. Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody.
The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.
I go to conventions all the time. I’m not one of those actors who’s public-shy, meaning I don’t mind when someone comes up. It doesn’t happen often in the real world because people don’t recognize me because I was in makeup, but when it does, I don’t usually mind it at all if somebody says something.
We must have zero tolerance for sexual harassment, even if the perpetrator is somebody we like and admire.
Diplomacy, n. is the art of letting somebody else have your way.
Coming up in this country, I’ve seen it so many times. When you see somebody rising you want to tear them down because you feel inadequate and you want to call it humble.
You just never know when somebody’s gonna die. It could happen at any moment so you’ve got to really treat everybody that way. Just really let everybody know how you feel about them.
I like simplicity. I like using natural sources. I like images to look natural – as though somebody sitting in a room by a lamp is being lit by that lamp.
The luckiest person in the world is somebody who is born into a small, shabby-genteel town on a major railway connection with 24,000 souls and a bird sanctuary and whose grandfather owns a farm and whose father owns a business -whose family is mildly prosperous but not rich, which means you can leave the town.
I yam who I yam; I’m not somebody, like, standard.
I’m always frustrated when somebody makes a movie out of a book and they leave the book behind, or the heart of it.
Everybody’s looking for love, and you want to love somebody and be loved in return.
I never want to be like somebody but be my own person, but follow along those lines like a Matt Millen, Michael Strahan. There’s so many players that have transitioned to being an anchor or a broadcaster, and it kind of just goes hand-in-hand.
What I’ve learned, traveling the country and doing book signings, Mama‘s biscuits – you know, somebody in Montana‘s got their version of Mama’s biscuits, somebody in California‘s got their version – so it made me realize that we’re not as regionalized as we think we are.
If somebody on this team actually gets to first base, I’ll stand there naked.
I don’t go by or change my attitude based on what people say. At the end of the day, they, too, are judging me from their perspective. I would rather be myself and let people accept me for what I am than be somebody who I am not, just because I want people’s approval.
We live in capitalism, and capitalism is defined by the production line, and the production line is defined by specificity. If you see yourself as an artist, which I do, then you can’t be limited by that. You can’t let somebody tell you, ‘Well, you can only draw this kind of picture or write that kind of book.’
Everybody is going to have a bad game. One game does not decide somebody’s season.
Philosophy is a performance sport – you have to play it with somebody back and forth.
You have to love your country like an adult loves somebody, not like a child loves its mommy. And right-wing Republicans tend to love America like a child loves its mommy, where everything Mommy does is okay. But adult love means you’re not in denial, and you want the loved one to be the best they can be.
I’m sure there’s somebody out there who doesn’t like Betty White because she’s short and has white hair.
Give what you have to somebody, it may be better than you think.
When you’re in shape, you don’t have to walk up to somebody and say, ‘Yo, I love myself.’ You look like you care for yourself.
Listen, here’s the thing about an English degree – if you sat somebody down and asked them to make a list of the writers they admire over the last hundred years, see how many of them got a degree in English.
If you laugh with somebody, then you know you share something.
A lot of times, somebody will say something and it will give you a good title. So you carry a pencil with you and jot that down. You don’t just write a song right quick, though. You fool around and work with it. You have to keep going over and over it and see if you can’t write a song that means something.
If somebody asks me whether I’d rather sink the winning putt in the Ryder Cup or win a major, it’s the major every day. World championship or Ryder Cup? Win a world championship. At the end of the day you’re going to be remembered for what you achieve in an individual sport.
