Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence.
I'm bad on Valentine's Day but even worse on Christmas. I go shopping at nine o'clock on December 24th every year. Nobody else is there. I'm in Toys'R'Us all by myself. I get there five minutes before closing.
I don't want to die as long as I can work the minute I can not I want to go.
For every two minutes of glamour there are eight hours of hard work.

I had a 2-week courtship with a fellow student in the fiction workshop in Iowa and a 5-minute wedding in a lawyer's office above the coffee shop where we'd been having lunch that day. And so I sent a cable to my father saying 'By the time you get this Daddy I'll already be Mrs. Blaise!'
I hadn't been in Vegas 20 minutes when I got word that the bookmakers were offering three to one that Frank wouldn't show for my wedding.
With all the negativity going on in the world right now people need an escape. When you give them a hit record or a great record it allows them to escape for at least three to four minutes. They're not thinking bills or economy or immigration or war when you create that kind of ambiance.
Think of what happened after 9/11 the minute before there was any assessment there was glee in the administration because now we can invade Iraq and so the war drums beat.
Do not love leisure. Waste not a minute. Be bold. Realize the Truth here and now!
I just think that I'll never have plastic surgery if I'm not in front of the camera. If you make your living selling this thing which is the way you look then maybe you do it. But trust me the minute I'm directing or producing and not starring I would never even think of it.
The Minutemen were seen as more of an art thing than Black Flag although I didn't see them that way. It confused people when we put out Saccharine Trust too.

Any time I got in emotional turmoil I felt sick all the time like at any minute I would die.
You are not a beautiful unique snowflake... This is your life and it's ending one minute at a time.

My problem is that I like technology but I always have to ask myself 'Now wait a minute will I actually have any use for this?'
We're still in the first minutes of the first day of the Internet revolution.
And I found out the other part of it is that I found out and in my desire to life successfully that baseball fit very well into my life. It's been a great teacher trainer mentor and you'll see what I mean in the next few minutes that I have to speak.
One man has enthusiasm for 30 minutes another for 30 days but it is the man who has it for 30 years who makes a success of his life.
Most people give up just when they're about to achieve success. They quit on the one yard line. They give up at the last minute of the game one foot from a winning touchdown.
