Coldplay fans are the best in the world. If you like Coldplay then you’re obviously very intelligent and good looking and all-around brilliant.
Many times, the decisions we make affect and hurt your closest friends and family the most. I have a lot of regrets in that regard. But God has forgiven me, which I am very thankful for. It has enabled me to forgive myself and move forward one day at a time.
It’s great to be a blonde. With low expectations it’s very easy to surprise people.
Friendship is a very taxing and arduous form of leisure activity.
I feel very lucky to have grown up having interaction with adults who were making change but who were far from perfect beings. That feeling of not being paralyzed by your incredible inadequacy as a human being, which I feel every day, is a part of the legacy that I’ve gotten from so many of the adult elders.
Being alone is very difficult.
Am I a liberal or conservative? I’m neither. Like most Americans, I find politics very frustrating. Like most Americans, I’d like to hear from politicians the facts. That is what drives me.
I was an only child, and Mother was always right with me all my life. I used to get very angry at her when I was growing up-it’s a natural thing.
The dark side of social media is that, within seconds, anything can be blown out of proportion and taken out of context. And it’s very difficult not to get swept up in it all.
I wouldn’t trade anything for family time. To me, it is more important than everything else, and I have a very deep-rooted belief in it, which is influenced by my Jewish faith. That’s a very great source of who I am and what I believe in.
The very important thing you should have is patience.
The wish to acquire more is admittedly a very natural and common thing; and when men succeed in this they are always praised rather than condemned. But when they lack the ability to do so and yet want to acquire more at all costs, they deserve condemnation for their mistakes.
A lot of people would say ‘sexy’ is about the body. But to me, ‘sexy’ is a woman with confidence. I admire women who have very little fear.
Appearance is something absolute, but reality is not that way – everything is interdependent, not absolute. So that view is very helpful to maintain a peace of mind because the main destroyer of a peaceful mind is anger.
Everything that’s created comes out of silence. Your thoughts emerge from the nothingness of silence. Your words come out of this void. Your very essence emerged from emptiness. All creativity requires some stillness.
Doing nothing is very hard to do… you never know when you’re finished.
Who has fully realized that history is not contained in thick books but lives in our very blood?
A lady‘s imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.
The world is changing very fast. Big will not beat small anymore. It will be the fast beating the slow.
Since boredom advances and boredom is the root of all evil, no wonder, then, that the world goes backwards, that evil spreads. This can be traced back to the very beginning of the world. The gods were bored; therefore they created human beings.
I have very short hair. It’s the only cute haircut I think I’ve ever had.
I never had a policy; I have just tried to do my very best each and every day.
I wasn’t close to my father, but I wanted to be all my life. He had a funny sense of humor, and he laughed all the time – good and loud, like I do. He was a gay Irish gentleman and very good-looking. And he wanted to be close to me, too, but we never had much time together.
The only normal people are the ones you don’t know very well.
There is no better time than now, this very Christmas season, for all of us to rededicate ourselves to the principles taught by Jesus the Christ. It is the time to love the Lord, our God, with all our heart – and our neighbors as ourselves.
Loneliness is always there, it’s a phase that comes and goes and it is a very difficult phase.
The real cure for our environmental problems is to understand that our job is to salvage Mother Nature. We are facing a formidable enemy in this field. It is the hunters… and to convince them to leave their guns on the wall is going to be very difficult.
The internet could be a very positive step towards education, organisation and participation in a meaningful society.
Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.
At the end of the day, I just do my job. I love my art. But I genuinely want to change the world. I’m very generous, and I really want people to see that I am – that’s really it.
I am a very private person. No one ever knows anything about me as I don’t think it is necessary. I tell people as much as I want them to know about me.
I have been to hell and back. I had a very, very bad nervous breakdown.
Never forget: This very moment, we can change our lives. There never was a moment, and never will be, when we are without the power to alter our destiny. This second, we can turn the tables on Resistance. This second, we can sit down and do our work.
If an elderly but distinguished scientist says that something is possible, he is almost certainly right; but if he says that it is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
I’m a very private person. My life story isn’t for everybody.
Man learns through experience, and the spiritual path is full of different kinds of experiences. He will encounter many difficulties and obstacles, and they are the very experiences he needs to encourage and complete the cleansing process.
Learning to fly an airplane taught me a way of thinking, an approach to problem-solving that was applicable and effective. Pilots are very methodical and meticulous, and artists tend not to be.
It’s very hard to get together with your friends. You rarely see friends as a whole group.
I have a mole in my eye, which is a very specific thing.
It’s very true that you can be both selfless and selfish at the same time. What we tend towards, particularly in filmmaking, is this binary sort of, ‘This is a good guy, this is a bad guy.’ And I quite like the fact that life is a bit more complex than that.
