Kindness I’ve discovered is everything in life.
I am not a perfect servant. I am a public servant doing my best against the odds. As I develop and serve be patient. God is not finished with me yet.
And I came back and it was great ‘cuz George had set up all these flowers all over the studio saying welcome home. So then we got it together again. I always felt it was better on the White one for me. We were more like a band you know.
Every year of my life I grow more convinced that it is wisest and best to fix our attention on the beautiful and the good and dwell as little as possible on the evil and the false.
People may take a job for more money but they often leave it for more recognition.
We learned in World War II that no single nation holds a monopoly on wisdom morality or right to power but that we must fight for the weak and promote democracy.
Quit while you’re ahead. All the best gamblers do.
The things we remember best are those better forgotten.
We are a Nation of peace and compassion yet these people have and will devote every fiber of their beings to the destruction of Americans and our Country.
A government is the only vessel that leaks from the top.
Selling out is doing something you don’t really want to do for money. That’s what selling out is.
A battle lost or won is easily described understood and appreciated but the moral growth of a great nation requires reflection as well as observation to appreciate it.
I have no idea how to get in touch with anyone anymore. Everyone it seems has a home phone a cell phone a regular e-mail account a Facebook account a Twitter account and a Web site. Some of them also have a Google Voice number. There are the sentimental few who still have fax machines.
I remember when I was a kid watching my mother jam herself into her girdle – a piece of equipment so rigid it could stand up on its own – and I remember her coming home from fancy parties and racing upstairs to extricate herself from its cruel iron grip.
I work at home in the country and days will go by when except for my husband and son and the occasional UPS man the only sentient creatures that see me are my chickens and turkeys.
Recently I have come to assume that any call to my landline is from a telemarketer or an automated call from Terminex letting me know that our regularly scheduled pest-extermination service will occur on its regular schedule. So I usually ignore my home phone.
The thing is I have a zillion apps and I’m always looking for the perfect arrangement for them so scrambling my home screen is part of that eternal quest.
When my son was born and after a day of lying-in I was told that I could leave the hospital and take him home I burst into tears. It wasn’t the emotion of the moment: it was shock and horror.
He is not a lover who does not love forever.
Love is all we have the only way that each can help the other.
In the end you make your reputation and you have your success based upon credibility and being able to provide people who are really hungry for information what they want.
Because death and illness are the most horrible things in life of course that’s where the most absurdly funny things are going to happen.
I think one of the basic tasks in life – one of the nice things we can do for each other – is to take things that are horrible and scary and make them acceptable and less frightening and if possible funny. It feels great to succeed at that.
I wish to assure you that there can never be any return to the state of armed conflict which existed before our commitment to peace and the democratic process of election under the Lancaster House agreement.
I wish the government and the Minister of Justice would address these legal and constitutional arguments but they refuse to. They want Canadians to go blindly into their brave new world but it is not wise for a society to move blindly in any direction.
I wish that there were more stringent laws to make guns sold anywhere that they’re legal harder to get.
I wish that every human life might be pure transparent freedom.
I wish people would turn off their computers go outside talk to people touch people lick people enjoy each other’s company and smell each other on the rump.
I wish I had coined the phrase ‘tyranny of choice’ but someone beat me to it. The counterintuitive truth is that have an abundance of options does not make you feel privileged and indulged too many options make you feel like all of them are wrong and that you are wrong if you choose any of them.
I wish I could just go tell all the young women I work with all these fabulous women ‘Believe in yourself and negotiate for yourself. Own your own success.’ I wish I could tell that to my daughter. But it’s not that simple.
I wish I could give you a lot of advice based on my experience of winning political debates. But I don’t have that experience. My only experience is at losing them.
I wish I could be as thin as Jessica Simpson. I think she looks gorgeous! I have had Jessica on my show several times and I can tell you that girl is genuine and funny with a great self-deprecating sense of humor.
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
I will not play tug o’ war. I’d rather play hug o’ war. Where everyone hugs instead of tugs Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug Where everyone kisses and everyone grins and everyone cuddles and everyone wins.
I will not attempt to deny the reasonableness and necessity of a party war but in carrying on that war all principles and rules of justice should not be departed from.
I will not attack your doctrines nor your creeds if they accord liberty to me. If they hold thought to be dangerous – if they aver that doubt is a crime then I attack them one and all because they enslave the minds of men.
I will continue to work as hard as I can to make this organization proud. Every time I step on the field I will give everything I have and I will leave everything I have on the field every single Sunday.
I went to the bank and asked to borrow a cup of money. They said ‘What for?’ I said ‘I’m going to buy some sugar.’
I went to college at the University of Kansas where I got a degree in political science.
I went to America and got into a band had success had hits in Australia.
I went to a football school which meant that I went to a university that served up education and was simultaneously operating a sports franchise.
I went to a fight the other night and a hockey game broke out.
I wear black skinny-fit jeans – I can’t get away from them. It’s funny because I wore baggy jeans for ages then one day my friend convinced me to try on a skinny pair and I thought they were great.
