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.
So when I was 13 I basically left home and never returned and lived at home again. I would come home for a week at Christmas and two weeks in the summer only.
Anyone's life truly lived consists of work sunshine exercise soap plenty of fresh air and a happy contented spirit.
For any of us in this room today let's start out by admitting we're lucky. We don't live in the world our mothers lived in our grandmothers lived in where career choices for women were so limited.
My mother lived in Holland and during World War II was incarcerated in a Japanese camp for three years.
During the Cold War we lived in coded times when it wasn't easy and there were shades of grey and ambiguity.
As to war I am and always was a great enemy at the same time a warrior the greater part of my life and were I young again should still be a warrior while ever this country should be invaded and I lived.
If anything we older people yearn for a peaceful world even more than young people do. We are the ones who lost friends or relatives in some war. We are the ones who have lived a lifetime of seeing and reading about human suffering.
We used to wonder where war lived what it was that made it so vile. And now we realize that we know where it lives... inside ourselves.
I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can only as one who has seen its brutality its futility its stupidity.
Everybody now admits that apartheid was wrong and all I did was tell the people who wanted to know where I come from how we lived in South Africa. I just told the world the truth. And if my truth then becomes political I can't do anything about that.
The truth is lived not taught.
The truth is I'm proud of the life I've lived so far and though I've made my share of mistakes I have no regrets.
But trust me if I lived in the '80s I would definitely be the one going to the record stores.
I tend not to trust people who live in very tidy houses. I know that on the surface there is nothing wrong with a person being well-ordered and disciplined. Nothing except that it leaves the impression of that person having lived in the confines of a stark institution which although he or she has long since left remains within.
Because I'm always away coming home to a clean house means a lot to me. Trust me I've lived with a lot of roommates and straight guys are just kids who don't pick up after themselves.
Modeling for me was not fulfilling. I didn't see the point - although I was able to travel a great deal. I lived in Italy Germany and Spain but I wasn't devoted to it.
I'm passionate and I travel the world not just as a tourist but to understand cultures... I've lived with Masai tribe... I travel the world and bring it back in the form of a research book that would become the starting point for the collection.
I'm thankful that I have lived long enough to become a legend and I hope I deserve it.
With success came an ever-growing burden of responsibility. I lived with a near-constant low-level anxiety that I would make a mistake that would not only threaten my career but also my brothers' - not to mention the livelihoods of many people who work with us or for us.
That man is a success who has lived well laughed often and loved much.
I lived in a town of 400 until I was like nine or ten. My dad coached all the sports - he was a gym teacher and health teacher for grades K-12.
On the surface we all act like we all love each other and we're free and easy and actually we're far more moralistic than any other society I've ever lived in.
Our lifetime may be the last that will be lived out in a technological society.
