If you like small government you need to work hard at having a strong national defense that is not so militant.

I wasn’t going to be an actor. I was going to be a lawyer. I came from a family just above working class, just below middle class, a great family of wonderful values. The idea of me having a chance for a law degree was enticing. Enticing to me but also very enticing to my family.

A big part of financial freedom is having your heart and mind free from worry about the what-ifs of life.
I’m not interested in having an orchestra sound like itself. I want it to sound like the composer.
Art is not an investment. Art is something you buy because you are financially solvent enough to give yourself a pleasure of living with great works rather than having to just see them in museums. People who are buying art at the top of the market as an investment are foolish.
One of the roles of the Presidency is to lead a political party. Having a President in office is usually a huge advantage to a party because it gives the party a mouthpiece and an advocate at the highest level.
In motivating people, you’ve got to engage their minds and their hearts. I motivate people, I hope, by example – and perhaps by excitement, by having productive ideas to make others feel involved.

Nobody minds having what is too good for them.

Trance is a very emotional and uplifting form of dance music. It appeals to many people in this way having such a strong connection with emotions. It makes people happy and ready to party.

I remember years ago being on the set of ‘Dreamcatcher’ and not only did I have such great admiration for Morgan Freeman and was just thrilled to be around him, I was struck by the fact that he seemed to be having perhaps more fun than I was at his job. And I thought, ‘Well, that’s very promising.’
As long as you are doing things with a smile on your face, and you are having fun, then you are being unfiltered.
We have one planet in our solar system that’s habitable, and that’s the Earth, and space travel can transform things back here for the better.

Having been poor is no shame, but being ashamed of it, is.
An unexamined faith is not worth having, for fundamentalism and uncritical certitude entail the rejection of one of the great human gifts: that of free will, of the liberty to make up our own minds based on evidence and tradition and reason.

A successful competition for me is always going out there and putting 100 percent into whatever I’m doing. It’s not always winning. People, I think, mistake that it’s just winning. Sometimes it could be, but for me, it’s hitting the best sets I can, gaining confidence, and having a good time and having fun.
I was never that much a focus of interest that I became a ‘thing’ at an earlier point in my career. I’m aware of having become a ‘thing’ now, which doesn’t give me a lot of pleasure.
Giving is true having.
Even though you’re growing up, you should never stop having fun.
There’s happiness in having less.

Having read the histories of other countries, I saw that expansion was everything, and that the world’s surface being limited, the great object of present humanity should be to take as much of the world as it possibly could.

I tell students that the opportunities I had were a result of having a good educational background. Education is what allows you to stand out.
I envy people with dreams and passions, but I don’t think that way. I still don’t have a ‘bliss‘ to follow.

Creativity is the process of having original ideas that have value. It is a process; it’s not random.
If you can’t see it, you can’t be it. It’s just having those brilliant women break out and do something – then other girls can say, ‘I can do it, too!’

My mother-in-law has come round to our house at Christmas seven years running. This year we’re having a change. We’re going to let her in.

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
Imagine you’re 24 years old, earning what I earn and having all that I have. Wouldn’t you be the same as me?

Real success is not, like, materialistic. It’s being where you want to be when you want to be; just living your life how you feel; having an ultimate goal and being able to accomplish it.
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.
I feel naked without jewelry. If I’m having a bad hair day, I pick something from my huge collection of hats.
Having followed the wireless industry long enough, I can tell you that building and supporting an application for different platforms is as tough as climbing a straight wall of rock.
As any doctor can tell you, the most crucial step toward healing is having the right diagnosis. If the disease is precisely identified, a good resolution is far more likely. Conversely, a bad diagnosis usually means a bad outcome, no matter how skilled the physician.
