It is impossible to love and to be wise.
Anybody who thinks money will make you happy hasn’t got money.
I think its man’s nature to go to war and fight.
War is not civilized.
Don’t worry about the war. It’s all over but the shooting.
Religion brings to man an inner strength spiritual light and ineffable peace.
What is wonderful about great literature is that it transforms the man who reads it towards the condition of the man who wrote.
Peace hath higher tests of manhood than battle ever knew.
Funny is funny.
I have no idea what I’m going to say when I stand up to give a toast. But I do know that anything I say I find funny.
Some people say funny things but I say things funny.
Who picks your clothes – Stevie Wonder?
What’s different now is that while political leaders used to give talking points to talk radio now talk-radio hosts are giving talking points to political leaders. It’s all part of the suffocating spin cycle we’re in. In media politics and publishing the conventional wisdom is to play to this base.
I cannot sing dance or act what else would I be but a talk show host.
I don’t know what has happened to movies but lately every movie is at least 20 minutes too long. It used to be that if you were three hours long it was because it was epic – a movie about Gandhi something with very important subject matters.
I remember being a kid and sleeping over at my friend’s house and staying up late and watching ‘Nosferatu.’ Vampire movies are supposed to be secret and bad. They should be rated R.
If I do three movies in a year I don’t feel like acting ever again.
If you’re not a real chameleon of an actor and if you’re not one of those guys who can really shape-change themselves all the time one of the ways to keep pushing yourself and keep changing is to be in different kinds of movies.
It’s difficult to do a genre film well and it doesn’t matter if you’re talking vampire movies or ‘Dawn of the Dead’ or ‘The Thing’ or ‘Escape From New York.’ Those kind of movies they understand what the old-school B-movie is supposed to be they get the throwback of it.
Right now if you’re interested in being a dramatic actor they’re not making that many just regular dramas. Movies have to have some other thing going on.
I think that people want peace so much that one of these days government had better get out of their way and let them have it.
In the councils of government we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence whether sought or unsought by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.
I’d rather a young black actor read about success as opposed to how tough it was. I get these roles because I can act and that’s it. Hopefully that’s it.
I buy expensive suits. They just look cheap on me.
If you work at comedy too laboriously you can kill what’s funny in the joke.
People often ask me how I make things funny. I don’t make things funny.
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.
