My cooking is so bad my kids thought Thanksgiving was to commemorate Pearl Harbor.
My mother died of metastatic colorectal cancer shortly before three P.M. on Christmas Day of 2008. I don't know the exact time of her death because none of us thought to look at a clock for a while after she stopped breathing.
I was at the vice president's Christmas party. I thought that his speech was spectacular and I knew that it was a very emotional and difficult thing for him to do but I admonished him for not waiting just one more stinking day.
Maybe Christmas the Grinch thought doesn't come from a store.
I suppose for me as an artist it wasn't always just about expressing my work I really wanted more than anything else to contribute in some way to the culture that I was living in. It just seemed like a challenge to move it a little bit towards the way I thought it might be interesting to go.
To me as long as we've known each other I've always thought Mick's most brilliant thing was that he could work in an area two foot square and give a very exciting performance.
I was all about my thoughts my work my inspiration. I was always in hair.
Work joyfully and peacefully knowing that right thoughts and right efforts inevitably bring about right results.
Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun's rays do not burn until brought to a focus.
I didn't want to set up a women's studies program. I thought women should learn to operate in a coeducational atmosphere because especially in national security and international affairs it's male-dominated.
I have to admit like so many women I always knew there was a chance. But like so many women I never thought it would be me. I never thought I'd hear those devastating words: 'You have breast cancer.'
We thought because we had power we had wisdom.
It may almost be a question whether such wisdom as many of us have in our mature years has not come from the dying out of the power of temptation rather than as the results of thought and resolution.
I acknowledge the privilege of being alive in a human body at this moment endowed with senses memories emotions thoughts and the space of mind in its wisdom aspect.
Pain makes man think. Thought makes man wise. Wisdom makes life endurable.
He who devotes sixteen hours a day to hard study may become at sixty as wise as he thought himself at twenty.
I've thought about it a hundred times. I even buy bridal magazines sometimes. I want David Tutera to do my wedding.
I'd been a wedding singer through college but after a few years of doing my best renditions of jazz standards to clinking glasses and the sound of forks on salad I thought 'Oh God if this is all I do I'll never be able to live with myself.'
On my wedding day. I didn't want a natural blushing-bride look - I had a full-on hairdo and red lips. I thought it would be disingenuous to do the whole virginal look so even though I had the white dress I had pink net underneath.
I thought I was attractive when I shot 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding.' Studio executives and movie reviewers let me know I had a confidence in my looks that was not shared by them.
Have you ever thought that war is a madhouse and that everyone in the war is a patient?
In the sex war thoughtlessness is the weapon of the male vindictiveness of the female.
I don't feel the need to direct. I tried to get other people to direct Dances but they wouldn't do it. They all thought it was too long. One director wanted to cut the Civil War sequence. Another thought the white woman was very cliched.
I shall proceed from the simple to the complex. But in war more than in any other subject we must begin by looking at the nature of the whole for here more than elsewhere the part and the whole must always be thought of together.
