I want a man who's kind and understanding. Is that too much to ask of a millionaire?
Most people outside of America won't get it. It's the Easter bunny. It's another lie and I don't understand why we had to invent this character.
To understand this Christmas record you have to understand our ministry.
A friend gave me a CD of the 'Pathetique' Symphony as a Christmas present. I went home and I put on the CD expecting to listen to Tchaikovsky. But it started 'ta ta ta taaa.' It was too long for me. I didn't understand it at first but then I fell in love in love in love.
Christmas is taken very seriously in this household. I believe in Father Christmas and there's no way I'd do anything to undermine that belief.
I actually share her view and understand her frustration when any government attempts to ban secular symbols like Santa Claus or Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer or Christmas lights.
Santa is our culture's only mythic figure truly believed in by a large percentage of the population. It's a fact that most of the true believers are under eight years old and that's a pity.
A lovely thing about Christmas is that it's compulsory like a thunderstorm and we all go through it together.
He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.

The path of least resistance and least trouble is a mental rut already made. It requires troublesome work to undertake the alternation of old beliefs.
People don't understand that when I grew up I was never the most talented. I was never the biggest. I was never the fastest. I certainly was never the strongest. The only thing I had was my work ethic and that's been what has gotten me this far.
A work can become modern only if it is first postmodern. Postmodernism thus understood is not modernism at its end but in the nascent state and this state is constant.
The United States strongly condemns the illegal disclosure of classified information. It puts people's lives in danger threatens our national security and undermines our efforts to work with other countries to solve shared problems.
I'd like to believe that the people that have supported me in my work or identified with me in films the people that feel they know me they do and they don't have misconceptions - they understand. I believe that.
A man willing to work and unable to find work is perhaps the saddest sight that fortune's inequality exhibits under this sun.
