But I'm pretty good with collaborative thinking. I work well with other people.
Every man should have laws of his own I should think commandments of his own for every man has a different set of circumstances wherein to work - or worry.
Letting go of things and not being afraid of being ridiculous or over the top - I think that's the main thing for me to work on.
I don't think I am evangelical in my work.
I like to talk about my obsession with french fries because I don't want people to think that 'Let's Move' is about complete utter deprivation. It's about moderation and real-life changes and ideas that really work for families.
When I was younger I probably didn't understand something basic about tact but I think it kept faint-hearted people at arm's distance and that's not such a bad thing because life is short and I know the kind of people I want to work with.
I work very hard but when God opens that door for you - when life opens that door for you I should say - I think it's important to be giving to return the love back.
You should never have to say hello or goodbye. Even at work sometimes and I know this is very unpopular is that if I'm going to work every single day I don't think you should have to hug people hello every single day when you come to work. I saw you Monday!
And I'm going to work as hard as I can... for cancer research and hopefully maybe we'll have some cures and some breakthroughs. I'd like to think I'm going to fight my brains out to be back here again next year for the Arthur Ashe recipient. I want to give it next year!
The strongest influences in my life and my work are always whomever I love. Whomever I love and am with most of the time or whomever I remember most vividly. I think that's true of everyone don't you?
I think life is full of challenges and problems. I don't believe that anyone is perfect. We all make mistakes. It's not a bed of roses and you have to work real hard at it.
The work on ants has profoundly affected the way I think about humans.
At 35 I'm definitely starting to feel more like a grown-up than I ever have. There's nothing in my life that is childish or whimsical. Having fun is fantastic and I never want to lose a sense of that - and also I think you have to have that to put into your work or else it's going to feel stiff.
A child from the time he can think should think about all he sees should suffer for all who cannot live with honesty should work so that all men can be honest and should be honest himself.
I think when you begin to think of yourself as having achieved something then there's nothing left for you to work towards. I want to believe that there is a mountain so high that I will spend my entire life striving to reach the top of it.
Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
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 think the one thing this picture shows that's new is the psychological disproportion of the kids' demands on the parents. Parents are often at fault but the kids have some work to do too.
Think of and look at your work as though it were done by your enemy. I you look at it to admire it you are lost.
How can people be so stupid? I marvel at that. See I think you have to work as being ignorant - and if you're gonna work at being ignorant why not work at being informed?
I think I should be active politically. Because I look upon myself as a politician. That's not a dirty work you know. Some people think that there are something wrong with politicians. Of course something wrong with some politicians.
I suppose I have a really loose interpretation of 'work ' because I think that just being alive is so much work at something you don't always want to do. The machinery is always going. Even when you sleep.
One is not idle because one is absorbed. There is both visible and invisible labor. To contemplate is to toil to think is to do. The crossed arms work the clasped hands act. The eyes upturned to Heaven are an act of creation.
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.
