My love is political. My body is political. I talk even when I don’t speak.
If you make listening and observation your occupation you will gain much more than you can by talk.
Gender is not an easy conversation to have. It makes people uncomfortable, sometimes even irritable. Both men and women are resistant to talk about gender or are quick to dismiss the problems of gender. Because thinking of changing the status quo is always uncomfortable.
People talk about physical fitness, but mental health is equally important. I see people suffering, and their families feel a sense of shame about it, which doesn’t help. One needs support and understanding. I am now working on an initiative to create awareness about anxiety and depression and help people.
The pop-star thing bores me because it’s somebody programming someone else. Stand over here, sing that, no, sing it like this, talk like that, when they ask you this, don’t say that, say this, hold that, drive this, stay here, live there – you’re not even a human being. You’re a puppet.
It’s all right to agree or disagree on the balanced budget amendment. It’s all right to talk about how we’re going to appropriate.

The Muse should be a trusted destination for answers. A hand when you need one. Someone to talk you through tough decisions or situations. A starting point.
I’ve had people hate me for my appearance. I think it gets me a certain level of empathy with the audience. If I was white and handsome and privileged, I probably couldn’t talk about what I talk about because people wouldn’t believe that I have empathy or I could be evenhanded and objective. It’s strange.
If I could talk to my younger self, I would just say that the path to great things is filled with a lot of stumbles, suffering, and challenges along the way. But if you have the right attitude and know that hard times will pass – and you get up each time – you will reach your destination.

I never talk about my personal life. After these rumours, I definitely do not want to comment on anything.
In my own view, Hamas‘s frustration derives from a lack of legitimization by Israel and by much of the world. It is this frustration that leads them to such destructive desperation. That’s why we need to grant them status as a legitimate enemy – before we talk about an agreement or, alternatively, about a frontal war.
The six of us gathered at my house, and we walked to the polls. I’ll never forget it. Not a Negro was on the streets, and when we got to the courthouse, the clerk said he wanted to talk with us. When we got into his office, some 15 or 20 armed white men surged in behind us – men I had grown up with, had played with.
And ‘tis remarkable that they talk most who have the least to say.

Feminists don’t honor successful women. You never hear them talking about Margaret Thatcher. Take Condoleezza Rice. She’s a remarkable, successful woman. You don’t hear the feminists talk about her or Carly Fiorina or Jeanne Kirkpatrick.
Being a teen can be tough. Just try to surround yourself with really good friends that really have your back, and also be a really good friend to those who really care about you. If you’re not sure about certain things, talk to your friends that you trust and your family.
You can’t talk your way out of problems you behave yourself into.
In India, nobody really talks about works of art; they always talk about the appreciation of art. You buy this for 3,000 rupees, it’ll become 30,000 in two months.
Yes, women are stronger than us. They face more directly the problems that confront them, and for that reason they are much more spectacular to talk about. I don’t know why I am more interested in women, because I don’t go to any psychiatrists, and I don’t want to know why.
How do you deal with a criminal that will not listen to what you have to say and who continues his policy of violence? Some say you continue to talk and let him tire himself out. But nearly 40 years after the institution of apartheid, is there anyone who still believes that verbal persuasion will work?
I remember my first scene with Alan Rickman, and I was anxious because he is a slight ‘method‘ actor; as soon as he is in his cloak, he walks and talks like Snape – it is quite terrifying. But I really wanted to talk to him because ‘Robin Hood‘ was one of my favourite films.
It’s very hard to talk about Palestine to Jewish people – they see me as a betrayer.
I think the biggest misconception about me is people really don’t know who I really am. They see the party side of me, they see the crazy side of me. But I also have a laid-back side. You know, I’m chill, down to earth. If you want to grab a cup of coffee and just talk about life, I can do that.
I like to connect with fans, usually positive stuff. If there is negative stuff, you just look past it and talk to the people that appreciate you.

My goal is just to be respected as a man when I walk down the street with my family. I don’t care what your job is, you’re not gonna talk down to me, you’re not gonna try to get a rise out of me. I’m a man first. And in establishing that, some interesting things have happened.
If women talk in ways expected of them or project a feminine demeanor, it’s seen as weak. But if they talk in ways associated with men or bosses, then they’re seen as too aggressive. Whatever they do violates one or the other expectation: either you’re not talking as you should as a woman or as boss.
People talk about tactics, but when you look at it, tactics are just players. You change things so that the team can get the most out of the skills they have to offer, but you don’t go any further than that.
If you’re a prosecutor, and you believe the defendant is guilty, you only talk about ultimate truth, but not intermediate truth. If you’re the defense attorney, you care deeply about intermediate truth, but you tend to neglect ultimate truth.
You have to know the forces that are against you and that are trying to break you down. We talk about the problems facing the black community: the decimation of the black family; the mass incarceration of the black man; we’re talking about the brutality against black people from the police. The educational system.
The best compliment we ever got about the show was from a Korean veteran who was unable to talk about his war experience with his wife until ‘M*A*S*H.’ While watching the show, he was able to lean over to his wife and say, ‘See, honey, that’s the way it was.’

Of course, I’m not allowed to talk about the script, but I can say it is a really good story.
There is a minimum requirement of morality, of moral compass, of decency, of moral empathy. And if you are incapable of meeting that minimum requirement, you can’t even talk to me about policy.

Part of the reason people don’t talk about their loneliness is that they feel they will be judged for it.
You can’t just walk away when somebody recognizes you. You have to take some time out and talk to them. It’s not a waste of time – I just love talking to people. And I don’t do this to sell records. The truth is, I do what I do because I love it.
When it comes to time management, I talk a lot more about energy management. I try to give people 100% of my energy even if I’m giving them very little of my time.
Stand-up comedy is not a man’s job. It’s an alpha job: To be the only person in a room with a microphone who’s allowed to talk.

I just want you to know that, when we talk about war, we’re really talking about peace.

At a dinner party one should eat wisely but not too well, and talk well but not too wisely.
I don’t Twitter or blog. I’m bad at small talk, and don’t have good ‘chat‘. Talk to me about publishing, and I can go on for hours.

I never talk openly about my political beliefs.
In Missouri, where I come from, we don’t talk about what we do – we just do it. If we talk about it, it’s seen as bragging.

I want people to get over my weight and the loss of it. It’s been years, and I am sure people can find better things to talk about.
There is no better way to manage than by walking around. Autocracy doesn’t work. Talk to people in their offices, find out what’s on their minds.
Listen, if you don’t talk big game, you never get anywhere. If you don’t think big, you don’t get big. Some people call it egotistical, some people call it high hopes, some people call it confidence. It’s all in how you want to dissect it.

In captivity, one loses every way of acting over little details which satisfy the essentials of life. Everything has to be asked for: permission to go to the toilet, permission to ask a guard something, permission to talk to another hostage – to brush your teeth, use toilet paper, everything is a negotiation.
If you do not wish a man to do a thing, you had better get him to talk about it; for the more men talk, the more likely they are to do nothing else.
We write for the same reason that we walk, talk, climb mountains or swim the oceans – because we can. We have some impulse within us that makes us want to explain ourselves to other human beings. That’s why we paint, that’s why we dare to love someone – because we have the impulse to explain who we are.
I’m a Muslim, but I think Jesus would have a drink with me. He would be cool. He would talk to me.
The worst mistake you can make with children is to talk to them in a condescending, patronising way and think that you can teach them something. You have to understand that it is you who will be learning from them. You have to get into their world and see things from their perspective.
The Republicans ought to be nowhere near trying to help Obama save his bacon. But they don’t think that’s what they’re doing, I’m convinced. You talk about trauma and the need for therapy, I really think that the Republicans have been genuinely psychologically traumatized by decades of media criticism.
If you go back a few hundred years, what we take for granted today would seem like magic – being able to talk to people over long distances, to transmit images, flying, accessing vast amounts of data like an oracle. These are all things that would have been considered magic a few hundred years ago.
No man would listen to you talk if he didn’t know it was his turn next.
Someone taught me this really lovely thing, which is when you’re panicking or thinking, ‘I can’t do this, I can’t do this,’ you just say, ‘Right. Hi, negative thoughts. Stop bothering me. If you just wait there, I’m going to do this job, then I’ll come back and talk to you later.’
The primary use of conversation is to satisfy the impulse to talk.
Patriarchy is like the elephant in the room that we don’t talk about, but how could it not affect the planet radically when it’s the superstructure of human society.
If I could talk to my younger self, I would tell her that you will grow into the woman you’ve always wanted to be. You will find love. You will be successful. You will be happy.
When I hear people talk about juggling, or the sacrifices they make for their children, I look at them like they’re crazy, because ‘sacrifice‘ infers that there was something better to do than being with your children.

People are so afraid to talk about real things, but they’re experiences that everyone goes through.
I cannot sing, dance or act; what else would I be but a talk show host.

My time is much too precious to be wasted on people who merely want to talk about being a high performance person and can’t or won’t take action!
My religious point of view is something I can’t talk about. It goes against my belief system to talk publicly about my own spiritual beliefs.
I am much less autistic now, compared to when I was young. I remember some behaviors like picking carpet fuzz and watching spinning plates for hours. I didn’t want to be touched. I couldn’t shut out background noise. I didn’t talk until I was about 4 years old. I screamed. I hummed. But as I grew up, I improved.
We in the Jewish Home party talk all the time about how Judea and Samaria are our homeland and they are part of Israel, so we are there to stay.
I want ‘Scars to Your Beautiful’ to reach different types of women. The girl I am talking about, it’s me, it’s you – it’s every girl who has struggled with feeling not good enough. I want to talk about all the different extremes that girls go through to feel beautiful.
In top-down processing, which is normally what we do in psychotherapy, we talk about our problems, our symptoms, or our relationships. And then the therapist often tries to get the client to feel what they’re feeling when they talk about those kinds of things.
I enjoy dating. I love first dates. I think they’re incredibly fascinating studies in human psychology. When you sit down across from someone on a first date and things are going alright, you talk objectives. We want to win each other over, so how do you win someone over? You have to put the best foot forward.
Don’t even try to talk to me when I’m watching the moon. That’s my moon, baby.
Girls talk to each other like men talk to each other. But girls have an eye for detail.
Social media enables us to talk about issues, shine a light on problems, and raise awareness of struggles that might have gone unnoticed. On the flipside, it also allows for a lot of noise and distractions. Sometimes it doesn’t create the best environment for a healthy discussion and can lead to trolling.
You never really learn much from hearing yourself talk.
It irritates me so much the way people talk about soaps because it is far more difficult working on a soap than it is on a big studio film.
Anybody I’m dating, I don’t want them to talk about my music. I don’t talk about my music to them.
Every college coach I talk to won’t say it on record, but everyone’s thinking, ‘Should I go to the league?’ Because you don’t have the same requirements. It’s different. The hours are different.
We all have something about ourselves that we’d change if we could in a perfect world, be it our body image, our financial status, our relationship, whatever. I wanted to talk about how nobody’s exempted from the realities of life and all those things.
There is a lot of talk now about metal detectors and gun control. Both are good things. But they are no more a solution than forks and spoons are a solution to world hunger.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with so many great directors. Different styles, as well, like Gus Van Sant. He just does the casting and the milieu and let’s you do your thing, quietly. Bertolucci, who can talk to you about your internal world in quite a creative way or just say, ‘Well, put your hand over here.’
The more we can get together and talk about various perspectives, feelings, beliefs, the better.
When you talk about the oil wealth you compare nations. There are some nations with less than five million people. Nigeria has 150 million people. I cannot say that all the money earned from oil since 1958, when the first drop of oil was exported from this country to date, that the money has been effectively used.
Our English language really says if you’re not a theist, the only alternative is to be an atheist. What I’m trying to do is develop a language that will enable us to talk about God beyond the, what I think, are sterile categories of theism and atheism.
People talk about the conscience, but it seems to me one must just bring it up to a certain point and leave it there. You can let your conscience alone if you’re nice to the second housemaid.
Children are extremely perceptive and absorb what goes on around them long before they can talk or even comprehend language. They are like finely tuned receivers that pick up much more than is merely said. They are receptive and attuned to every mood, feeling, and change that goes on in people around them.
Maybe it was the home tutoring, or the late start to formal schooling, or an overly cautious and protective upbringing, but in any case, I never became a talkative person. As an adult, I am not always comfortable in social gatherings with small talk. I must have inherited my father’s gentle nature.
Poetry is its own medium; it’s very different than writing prose. Poetry can talk in an imagistic sense, it has particular ways of catching an environment.
My mom had a produce business in in Oxnard, and we used to take these long trips to talk to farmers and different distributors. She’d take us with her after picking us up from school, and she’d be blasting all this old soul music and R&B. I knew all those O’Jays songs before I knew Snoop or Dre or Tupac.
Literature is my Utopia. Here I am not disenfranchised. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet, gracious discourses of my book friends. They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness.
I’ll think I have a few wonderful friends and all of a sudden, ooh, here it comes. They do a lot of things. They talk about you to the press, to their friends, tell stories, and you know, it’s disappointing.
If you want to talk about something new, you have to make up a new kind of language.
It’s my mission to get the New Zealand accent into a Hollywood show. I’m proud of the way we talk, and I’m here to represent it. Kiwis are everywhere: they’re in every city of the world. I’ve checked. We have a voice… it’s a bit of a funny one at times, but it’s one that I want to promote.
I talk to Allah, I pray to him.
I was a studious child, heavily into academics. For the longest time, I wouldn’t talk.
The truth is, it’s easier for me to write than talk… to express the state I’m in at any time.
I want to do an intelligent talk show where you have room to breathe.
I feel respect is in your hands as an actor when portraying a character, particularly when it’s from the Indian subcontinent. I do make a conscious effort to do so and often talk to the directors especially about the heavy accent when it’s not needed.
There is this tremendous amount of arrogance and hubris, where somebody can look at something for five minutes and dismiss it. Whether you talk about gaming or 20th century classical music, you can’t do it in five minutes. You can’t listen to ‘The Rite of Spring‘ once and understand what Stravinsky was all about.
It was sort of that in-between area when people don’t talk about their personal lives. That’s the kind of life I think Kerry would be living now if it weren’t for the Lopez character sort of outing her.
Isn’t it strange that we talk least about the things we think about most?
We do not talk – we bludgeon one another with facts and theories gleaned from cursory readings of newspapers, magazines and digests.
I probably learned, being in ‘Taxi Driver‘ before I made my first film, I would come to the set every day just to watch how that film came about. It’s like a graduate course: it’s terrific. You talk to the cinematographer during the breaks. You ask the electrician why they are doing this.
When there is money, there is also greed. Everyone wants to talk to you when there is money. Only if you have the passion for it, you must become a philanthropist, else it’ll become a headache.
Look at guys like Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers. Those guys have great arms, but people talk about them more as a quarterbacks and the intellectual side of the game and how they really dissect defenses – and then the arm is something else that helps them with that.
It is easy to talk on religion, but difficult to practice it.
I love people that can talk and have personality.
It’s a sad day in this country when you can’t talk about law and order unless they want to call you a racist.
Religion is something we don’t talk about, and it is used by uneducated people as a weapon to divide us as opposed to connect with each other.
Any other illness and you have time off work, but there is a lot of stigma around mental illness. It’s frightening to talk about it. The people suffering don’t want sympathy.
When you talk about the SEC, you never get a chance to rest.
You never talk bad about your teammates, doesn’t matter if you like them or not.
You cannot talk about race without talking about privilege. And when people start talking about privilege, they get paralyzed by shame.
Talk to a man about himself and he will listen for hours.
The components of anxiety, stress, fear, and anger do not exist independently of you in the world. They simply do not exist in the physical world, even though we talk about them as if they do.
If the dead talk to you, you are a spiritualist; if God talks to you, you are a schizophrenic.
Don’t talk about what you have done or what you are going to do.
Most rock journalism is people who can’t write, interviewing people who can’t talk, for people who can’t read.
I don’t even know what a traditional producer is or does. I feel like the job is like being a coach, building good work habits and building trust. You want to get to a point where you can say anything and talk about anything. There needs to be a real connection.
If you’ve ever watched someone who is a mother talk on the phone, feed the dog, bounce the baby, it’s just astounding to see someone manage, more or less well, to do all those things. But on a computer, multitasking is really binary. The task is either in the foreground, or it’s not.
They say women talk too much. If you have worked in Congress you know that the filibuster was invented by men.
I’d be so fascinated to talk to a psychologist or sociologist about the deep psychological impact of seeing oneself represented. I don’t think we’ve really touched the surface of what it does to the psyche of a people if the only image of you out there is negative. Or if it’s never out there.
Therefore, when we arrive in a place and talk to new people about a new image, it is very hard for them to visualize it. That’s where the drawings are very important, because at least we can show a projection of what we believe it will look like.
Growing up, around the dinner table my father and I didn’t talk sports. We talked business.
There is plenty of television. There are plenty of talk shows. There are plenty of comedians. But there is not plenty of worship of the true and living God.
Now I’ve even gotten to running out to the fan buses that pass by our house, so I can talk to the people. I think I’m trying to gather fans, frankly. They’re very, very nice people – they really understand. It’s fun talking to them.
I think we should all be more concerned about the environment and the effects of global warming. It will be pointless to talk about all the issues that divide us when it’s 300 degrees outside.
If we talk about the environment, for example, we have to talk about environmental racism – about the fact that kids in South Central Los Angeles have a third of the lung capacity of kids in Santa Monica.
Some of the cases which have come to light of employers being disciplined or sacked for simply trying to talk about their faith in the workplace I find quite extraordinary. The sanitisation will lead to people of faith excluding themselves from the public space and being excluded.
People talk about great motivators, but I think motivation has to come from within the individual first, because if you haven’t got that inner strength yourself, and belief and you want to do well, it doesn’t matter what anybody else says. You have to have that; it has to be inbuilt.
Women think that men don’t talk about their feelings with guys. We do talk to friends about relationships, but it’s succinct – 10 minutes, then we move on.
Well, now, and there’s – for every dollar the federal government spends, there’s real people on the other side, and so when we talk about reductions that are going to affect providers, that’s going to affect hospitals and doctors and others.
Guys want to talk about feelings, too, sometimes.
Every quarterback can throw a ball; every running back can run; every receiver is fast; but that mental toughness that you talk about translates into competitiveness.
Don’t talk to me about civility when you’re separating families at the border.
We talk about feelings. And about sex. And about bodies, and their gratification, violation, repair, decoration, deferred, maybe permanently deferred, mortality. Feelings are a bodily thing, and respecting them is called, is, kindness.
Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them.
When you see a person, do you just concentrate on their looks? It’s just a first impression. Then there’s someone who doesn’t catch your eye immediately, but you talk to them and they become the most beautiful thing in the world. The greatest actors aren’t what you would call beautiful sex symbols.
My old school in Liverpool is now a performing-arts school, and I kind of teach there – I use the word lightly – but I go there and talk to students.
Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven. I don’t think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without the talking about the other.
Talk to people in their own language. If you do it well, they’ll say, ‘God, he said exactly what I was thinking.’ And when they begin to respect you, they’ll follow you to the death.
If you talk bad about country music, it’s like saying bad things about my momma. Them’s fightin’ words.
Now more than ever we need to talk to each other, to listen to each other and understand how we see the world, and cinema is the best medium for doing this.
A lot of people ask why I don’t talk about my dad, and I want to, I just don’t have that many stories. When he moved out, he moved to a different state, so it was just my mom and I.
I think that Governor Romney needs to talk about the fact that what he tried to do in the state of Massachusetts was him seeing what could be best for his state, but maybe it didn’t work out as well.
I’m not a fan of small talk but if you want to get into the big questions of life – your deepest regret, your greatest joy – then we’re going to have a great chat.
It’s not something I’m embarrassed about. Depression is an issue that tends to be brushed under the carpet. My hope is that if people with a public profile are prepared to talk about it, then it might prompt other people to talk about it too.
The less you talk, the more you’re listened to.
The first cell phone model weighed over one kilo, and you could only talk for 20 minutes before the battery ran out. Which is just as well because you would not be able to hold it up for much longer.

Talk is cheap. Actions speak.
A lot of times, when people say hip-hop, they don’t know what they’re talking about. They just think of the rappers. When you talk about hip-hop, you’re talking about the whole culture and movement. You have to take the whole culture for what it is.
Talkers are usually more articulate than doers, since talk is their specialty.
When people talk about people who are optimistic about gold, they call them ‘gold bugs.’ A bug is an insect. I don’t call equity bugs ‘cockroaches.’ Do you understand? There is already a negative connotation with the expression of ‘gold bug.’
I love to talk about cooking and recipes, but I love as much talking about how food and cooking can change the world.

I would love to have a conversation with you when we’re working, and if I’m at a basketball game, I’ll probably talk to everyone there. That’s different. But on the outside world, if I don’t know you and you don’t know me, I probably cannot sit there and have a conversation.
I wanted to be a doctor that I might be able to work without having to talk because for years I had been giving myself out in words.

One has to grow up with good talk in order to form the habit of it.
We have to talk about liberating minds as well as liberating society.
People like to talk a lot about me, about how I have anxiety or social disorders. I’ll admit to anxiety, but it has nothing to do with media or being in front of a camera or being around people. It has to do with dealing with the sparring that I’m going to have or the workouts that I’m going to have from day to day.
I thought talking to human beings was just something that could make things complicated and unpleasant. So I didn’t talk much. I just watched people.
Prayer is when you talk to God. Meditation is when you’re listening. Playing the piano allows you to do both at the same time.
I don’t talk about money.
I don’t like to talk much with people who always agree with me. It is amusing to coquette with an echo for a little while, but one soon tires of it.
People who talk about revolution and class struggle without referring explicitly to everyday life, without understanding what is subversive about love and what is positive in the refusal of constraints, such people have a corpse in their mouth.

As an Indian, and now as a politician and a government minister, I’ve become rather concerned about the hype we’re hearing about our own country, all this talk about India becoming a world leader, even the next superpower.
Zidane transmits a very clear idea to the players. He doesn’t need to give a 20 minute motivational talk, he doesn’t need it. With his presence alone, he achieves what he wants – his personality is synonymous with success.
In plain Texas talk, it’s ‘do the right thing‘
I think it’s important to talk to my sisters when I have a big decision to make.
Self-pity, a dominant characteristic of sociopaths, is also the characteristic that differentiates heroic storytelling from psychological rumination. When you talk about your experiences to shed light, you may feel wrenching pain, grief, anger, or shame. Your audience may pity you, but not because you want them to.
It’s fun for me to go on other folks’ talk shows. When you’ve endured the ups and downs and tensions and pitfalls of hosting, being a guest is a piece of angel food.

Yes, we do need better representation, but I’m a big believer that we also need to talk about the Uluru Statement of the Heart. We need all of Australia to understand what it was, and is, and what that movement is about.
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 don’t think people are going to talk in the future. They’re going to communicate through eye contact, body language, emojis, signs.

I want people to talk to one another no matter what their difference of opinion might be.
I’ve met Oprah Winfrey twice, but I want to spend some quality time with her. I want to sit her down and talk at her for a minute about what she means to me and why she means that. Then I have some advice for her, too… I have an idea or two.
The Four Levels of Comedy: Make your friends laugh, Make strangers laugh, Get paid to make strangers laugh, and Make people talk like you because it’s so much fun.

If a lion could talk, we could not understand him.
We all need somebody to talk to. It would be good if we talked… not just pitter-patter, but real talk. We shouldn’t be so afraid, because most people really like this contact; that you show you are vulnerable makes them free to be vulnerable.
Your children can be around you all day, but if you don’t spend quality time with them and you don’t pay attention to them and talk to them and listen to them, it doesn’t matter that they’re just around you.
My early memories are full of football talk around the house, of Dad standing on the terraces at Ayresome Park, of the occasional precious new pair of boots.

There are two ways of talking. One is the easy way, where you talk lightly, and the other one is the considered way. The considered way is what I have put my name to.
I have so much to talk about. I have so much to share. There are so many different emotions going on inside of me right now.
It can be difficult for people to talk about it, because there still is that stigma around mental illness. But I would encourage people to do that, because they’ll be surprised once they do ‘come out’ how many other people have had similar experiences.
My feet are like something from another age – prehistoric and troll-like. I keep expecting them to talk, they have that much character.
Dutch is our first language. When you talk to older people, you speak Dutch. It’s more respectful. The local language, you talk with your friends. You don’t talk to your parents like that with the local slang.
I got invited to the White House, and I tried to sleep there overnight without permission. The Secret Service came to my house, and I had to talk to them. They legally couldn’t do anything because I didn’t do anything wrong, but they yelled at me like a principal.
I talk a lot about the men in my family because my mother died when I was little, and my grandmother died when my aunts were little, so we didn’t have those kinds of heads of household. But all the members of our household who were female were sort of living as equal and as wise as the male figures in our family.
Next time I see you, remind me not to talk to you.
When I first came out about my breast cancer, I didn’t want to talk about it, but I had to, because young women were getting it, and people weren’t understanding that.

War’s stupid. Nobody wins. You might as well talk first; you have to talk last anyway.
I’ve made an odd discovery. Every time I talk to a savant I feel quite sure that happiness is no longer a possibility. Yet when I talk with my gardener, I’m convinced of the opposite.
I’m a quasi-only child. With my brother and sister, I’ve more of a tendency to be semi-maternal. So, yes, I spent a lot of time talking to myself – I had this big dressing-up box and would just dress up as lots of characters and talk back to myself… Verging on schizophrenia, I suppose, if you analyse it carefully.
I don’t think I’d be a very good talk show host. I mean, I’m very talkative but I don’t know if I could do that all the time.
I think success is when the way you talk about who you want to be and what you want to do lines up with who you are and what you do. I guess, by that, I mean I think success is practicing what you preach.

I really like Kendrick Lamar. I’m still a Talib Kweli fan, Lupe Fiasco, Mos Def, Common Sense – people who say things that are relevant to everyday life. I don’t pay attention to artists that talk about throwing money away and the car that they drive.
Everywhere I go, everyone I talk with, everyone I think about – their salvation is what is on my mind. I love fellowship with Christians, but I can’t become preoccupied with the pleasure of fellowship when I know that sinners are sinking into hell.
My husband is an actor, and we don’t talk about acting at home.
I am a spiritual person. I’m a Catholic. I treat my patients, the dead patients, as live patients. I believe there is life after death. And I talk to my patients. I talk to them, not loudly but quietly in my heart when I look at them. Before I do an autopsy, I must have a visual contact with the face.
In my opinion, if we have not achieved peace, it is because people forget its most fundamental aspect. Before we talk about peace among nations, we must settle our peace with God.
When we talk about ‘smart transportation,’ it is more than moving cargo from A to B. Digitization within transport and logistics means seamless service to our customers, visibility in the supply chain, and driving a more efficient business.
