I used to know Jennifer Love Hewitt. We lived in the same apartment building when I was about... jeez I guess it was when I was doing 'Christmas Vacation' so I was about 13 or 14.
I'm going to take the kids away over Christmas but I don't I've written 14 musicals now I don't want to rush into doing something just for the sake of doing it. I want to do it when I find a story.
The denominational world tries to pressure its members to focus on the birth of Christ but in doing so layers of guilt are imposed and competition gets complicated as one Christmas program tries to outdo the other.
Well the album 'Intuition' is out and just went platinum officially. So I think to have the music doing what it's doing right now man it's the ultimate. Nobody is really selling records out there but we are at a million records and we dropped it at Christmas so we are just trying to get that thing to like two million you know.
The whole point of me doing a Christmas record and what I centered it around was the song 'Christmas with You' from the point-of-view of the soldiers in Iraq.
One Christmas build-up tradition however has totally bypassed me - that of going up to town and 'doing a show.'
So we're considering doing a new Christmas album because there's been Christmas episodes since then and maybe finally do the version of 'The Most Offensive Song Ever' with lyrics intact.
I think of doing a series as very hard work. But then I've talked to coal miners and that's really hard work.
I don't think people understand that being poor means you have to work from dawn until dusk just to survive through the day. I think there's some notion that poor people lie about all day not doing anything.
It is not real work unless you would rather be doing something else.
Nothing is really work unless you would rather be doing something else.
You can't get there by bus only by hard work and risk and by not quite knowing what you're doing. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover will be yourself.
I think the importance of doing activist work is precisely because it allows you to give back and to consider yourself not as a single individual who may have achieved whatever but to be a part of an ongoing historical movement.
I don't mean to be arrogant and I really appreciate my fans but talking about what I am doing is not something I'm good at. I do what I do and that's it. I want to get back to my work and do more of it instead of talking about it.
The theater needs continual reminders that there is nothing more debasing than the work of those who do well what is not worth doing at all.
Don't ever ever believe anyone who tells you that you can just get by by doing the easiest thing possible. Because there's always somebody behind you who really wants to do what you're doing. And they're going to work harder than you if you're not working hard.
I'm one of these very focused people when it comes to day-to-day work and I'm trying not to think about what comes next so that I can stay very focused on what I'm doing now.
I never did anything worth doing by accident nor did any of my inventions come by accident they came by work.
The people who are doing the work are the moving force behind the Macintosh. My job is to create a space for them to clear out the rest of the organization and keep it at bay.
I don't pity any man who does hard work worth doing. I admire him. I pity the creature who does not work at whichever end of the social scale he may regard himself as being.
Before you start some work always ask yourself three questions - Why am I doing it What the results might be and Will I be successful. Only when you think deeply and find satisfactory answers to these questions go ahead.
Nothing is work unless you'd rather be doing something else.
I like American women. They do things sexually Russian girls never dream of doing - like showering.
I've always had the impression that real militants are like cleaning women doing a thankless daily but necessary job.
