You don’t go to Notre Dame to learn something; you go to Notre Dame to be somebody.
You take somebody that cries their goddam eyes out over phoney stuff in the movies, and nine times out of ten they’re mean bastards at heart.
No matter who you are, you’re gonna feel alienated by somebody.
Somebody once said I had a face for radio and a voice for newspapers.
I feel like if you’re in a bad situation, and then you see somebody that’s even in a worse situation, you feel for that person.
Show me a person who has never made a mistake and I’ll show you somebody who has never achieved much.
People now know of the word intervention and think they understand what it means, but more often than not they go about intervening the wrong way. I see people staging things on their own. But discussing the nature of somebody’s condition over breakfast isn’t an intervention.
The terrorists that we are up against today do not rely upon cell phones and SAT phones and emails. They rely on couriers. You cannot intercept what a courier is telling somebody.
When the storms of life come, if they come to me personally, to my family or to the world, I want to be strong enough to stand and be a strength to somebody else, be shelter for somebody else.
Work hard for what you want because it won’t come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.
Everybody has to be somebody to somebody to be anybody.
At the end of the day, somebody someday is going to say something about you. At least you can look back and say you lived the way you wanted to.
You can tell on-stage when a joke’s starting to lose its pop. It doesn’t mean people don’t want to hear it anymore; it means I don’t want to do it anymore. Because I want to move on to something that has a knee-jerk reaction just like you get when you tell somebody a joke that they’ve never heard.
If anything, if you can get somebody interested in something and get them excited, that’s great. You should be praised for having opened the debate and having asked the right questions.
So much has been said and sung of beautiful young girls, why doesn’t somebody wake up to the beauty of old women.
One of the jobs of a manager is to instill confidence, pump confidence into your people. And when you’ve got somebody who’s raring to go and you can smell it and feel it, give ’em that shot.
It would be great to do a story and get somebody who is innocent out of jail. That’s a wonderful thing.
Something is worth what somebody will pay for it. Nothing else, nothing more, nothing less.
It’s better to use a curse word than to hurt somebody else, I find.
My father told me once not to expect anything from anybody so I wouldn’t be disappointed. If somebody was nice and did nice things for me, I should be overjoyed, but I shouldn’t go through life expecting it, which is very good advice.
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.
Me and my family are straight. I am blessed. I am alive, man, and I am healthy, and that is the only thing that matters. Me and my family, everybody else, it really doesn’t matter because why do you care about somebody talking negative about you if they don’t know you?
I’ve never been the type of guy to be somebody I’m not.
I advise everybody not to save: spend your money. Most people save all their lives and leave it to somebody else. Money is to be enjoyed.
All discarded lovers should be given a second chance, but with somebody else.
If you don’t know your own value, somebody will tell you your value, and it’ll be less than you’re worth.
You don’t have to be poor to need something or somebody.
The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in somebody else’s cloud. Somebody who may not look like you. May not call God the same name you call God – if they call God at all. I may not dance your dances or speak your language. But be a blessing to somebody. That’s what I think.
What nicer thing can you do for somebody than make them breakfast?
If somebody on this team actually gets to first base, I’ll stand there naked.
The worst thing to call somebody is crazy. It’s dismissive.
No matter how bad you think you have it, there’s always – always somebody who’s got it way, way worse.
It’s sad and upsetting when you see somebody crying hysterically, but at the same time it’s real funny.
What annoys people is the idea that somebody has everything, and they’re allowed to get away with anything. It’s the sense of entitlement that gets up people’s noses.
A film – especially when it’s a personal film – is going to hit somebody or it’s not. There’s nothing you can do about it.
That’s what a god is. Somebody who knows more than you do about whatever you’re dealing with.
I’m not somebody that’s trying to be somebody else. I’m being myself for the most part and people respect that.
I’d forget the piece just before I went out to do the concerto, the panic was too great. This was not anything that gave me pleasure. This was fulfilling somebody else’s dream.
There is none who cannot teach somebody something, and there is none so excellent but he is excelled.
They say somebody’s ‘street smart.’ I feel like, if I got intelligence, it’s just a country smart.
To convert somebody go and take them by the hand and guide them.
When you betray somebody else, you also betray yourself.
Although Ronald Reagan was somebody I disagreed with on most ideological things, he was a friend of mine, and he was a very, very likable man. Ronald Reagan, for instance, was maybe more able to get the very rich to do the right thing sometimes.
When you’re in shape, you don’t have to walk up to somebody and say, ‘Yo, I love myself.’ You look like you care for yourself.
I think, in general, this country makes a huge deal about nudity and not a big enough deal about violence. We’re allowed to cut people’s heads off on shows – but not allowed to show breasts or somebody breastfeeding or whatever. I think it’s a big deal in America especially. But I think to each is own.
There’s such a thing as good stress and bad stress. Bad stress is when somebody else stresses you out, and good stress is when you stress yourself out over something you want to accomplish, which makes you want to perfect it.
Somebody up there likes me. It ain’t like I’ve followed a well trodden trajectory.
There’s something about somebody’s first screenplay: it’s like their whole life experience has kind of been bottled into it. They bring so much richness to it. And not that they won’t do that for their next script, but there is something about their first experience and the time that it’s been floating in their head.
I don’t want any title. I just say what I say, and hopefully somebody gets it, man. I’m not perfect, and I’m just here and trying to make a dollar, and being real at the same time, you know?
I think everybody longs to be loved and longs to know that he or she is lovable. And, consequently, the greatest thing that we can do is to help somebody know that they’re loved and capable of loving.
What I’ve learned, traveling the country and doing book signings, Mama‘s biscuits – you know, somebody in Montana‘s got their version of Mama’s biscuits, somebody in California’s got their version – so it made me realize that we’re not as regionalized as we think we are.
I have a sweet tooth. I love dessert, and if somebody makes me one, I’m going to have it.
I look at Puff Daddy as somebody that gave me a chance to prove the whole world wrong. Cause when I used to think about rap, everybody would say, ‘Well, you talk too slow,’ or, ‘You rap too slow,’ when in reality, that was my uniqueness.
But I think it’s intoxicating when somebody is so unapologetically who they are.
In the Old Testament, it says that if you have the power to do something good, then you have to do it. You’re not to avoid helping somebody in their time of need.
I’m just an individual who doesn’t feel that I need to have somebody qualify my work in any particular way. I’m working for me.
With Ronald Reagan in the White House, somebody had to look out for those who were not so fortunate. That’s where I came in.
For more and more of us, home has really less to do with a piece of soil than, you could say, with a piece of soul. If somebody suddenly asks me, ‘Where’s your home?’ I think about my sweetheart or my closest friends or the songs that travel with me wherever I happen to be.
When somebody takes a child from their native culture, that is in itself an act of aggression.
I think of myself as somebody who, in a moment-to-moment way, I’m quite happy. But I think I am a bit doubtful and wary of true happiness, and, like a lot of my friends, there’s been a good degree of self-sabotage.
Distance is a bad excuse for not having a good relationship with somebody. It’s the determination to keep it going or let it fall by the wayside; that’s the real reason that the relationships continue.
I analyse in my own way, in very simple, no-jargon language. If somebody is talking in very complicated way, I never like that.
In their 20s, women try to be somebody they’re not and try to turn themselves into something different. Now I’m in my 30s; I’m very happy with who I am.
Somebody has to take responsibility for being a leader.
I want no epitaphs of profound history and all that type of thing. I contributed. I would hope they would say that, and I would hope somebody liked me.
I am not trying to change the world. I am just offering my gift that God gave me, and if somebody is moved by it, that’s beautiful.
I can’t stay mad very long. I get grumpy when I read a bad review. I say, ‘How could he say that about my music?’ Then I forget about it. If I got mad every time somebody wrote something negative about me, I’d be exploding all the time. I’d be burned out just from reading reviews.
In Afghanistan, you don’t understand yourself solely as an individual. You understand yourself as a son, a brother, a cousin to somebody, an uncle to somebody. You are part of something bigger than yourself.
As a producer, sitting on the other side of the desk, I have never once had an agent go out on a limb for his client and fight for him. I’ve never heard one say, ‘No, just a minute! This is the actor you should use.’ They will always say, ‘You don’t like him? I’ve got somebody else.’ They’re totally spineless.
The kind of poet who founds and reconstitutes values is somebody like Yeats or Whitman – these are public value-founders.
You just never know when somebody’s gonna die. It could happen at any moment so you’ve got to really treat everybody that way. Just really let everybody know how you feel about them.
You’ve got to love yourself first. You’ve got to be okay on your own before you can be okay with somebody else.
Maybe one of the most heartening findings from the psychology of pleasure is there’s more to looking good than your physical appearance. If you like somebody, they look better to you. This is why spouses in happy marriages tend to think that their husband or wife looks much better than anyone else thinks that they do.
You need somebody just to say, ‘Hey, I’m here for you. Do you need anything?’ If you can get somebody like that, you can make it, no question about it. You can make it.
Since the departure of good old-fashioned entertainers the re-emergence of somebody who wants to be an entertainer has unfortunately become a synonym for camp. I don’t think I’m camper than any other person who felt at home on stage, and felt more at home on stage than he did offstage.
Somebody’s upset with every movie.
It’s a delight to trust somebody so completely.
When everyone is somebody, then no one’s anybody.
I think Clinton, after getting into office and into Washington, was shocked at being bludgeoned. So he spent time trying to be all things to all people – one way guaranteed not to be successful or respected in a lion’s den. You can’t just play around with all those big cats – you’ve got to take somebody on.
Sometimes I just need somebody to tell me a bunch of ideas I don’t like, so that I can figure out what it is I actually want.
Coming up in this country, I’ve seen it so many times. When you see somebody rising you want to tear them down because you feel inadequate and you want to call it humble.
Sometimes it’s a form of love just to talk to somebody that you have nothing in common with and still be fascinated by their presence.
My father never was and isn’t a mean man. You know, he never was ruthless. And he succeeded in life without sticking it to anybody. And that’s a great example for a man, a strong man, a man’s man, to give to his children. You can succeed, you can be successful, without walking over somebody.
News is what somebody somewhere wants to suppress; all the rest is advertising.
You just never give up, no matter how hard the challenges are, and observe this world with a healthy dose of criticism and don’t just follow the herd like somebody else might do.
The Spirit works through community. Somebody will have a stupid, screwy idea. That’s okay. The point of having creeds and confessions and traditions is to keep us in touch with the obvious errors.
Every time I am looking into the depths of somebody’s brain, I’m thinking, ‘This is what makes a person who they are. That structure contains memories. Everything that they’ve ever experienced is right in there.’
I’m not saying I shouldn’t have to pay any taxes, but I shouldn’t have to pay as many as somebody that votes. I don’t vote because I don’t know anything about politics. And honestly, I can’t believe they’d let me. Isn’t that an important thing? They’ll just let me pick the president! I don’t gotta know anything!
When I love somebody, I cannot drop it out of my life. Love is not something like you open and you close, you know?
Listen, here’s the thing about an English degree – if you sat somebody down and asked them to make a list of the writers they admire over the last hundred years, see how many of them got a degree in English.
I’ve got my own businesses I run every day and I like to think I’m a nurturer rather than a firer, but the reality is, if somebody continues not to succeed and do the right thing for the business they lose the job because they are affecting the livelihoods of others.
If somebody thinks they’re a hedgehog, presumably you just give ’em a mirror and a few pictures of hedgehogs and tell them to sort it out for themselves.
It’s easy to sleep floating around – it’s very comfortable. But you have to be careful that you don’t float into somebody or something!
It started back in 2002, when there was hardly any reality television. ‘Survivor’ had just started. My hope and dream was that ‘The Bachelor‘ would last one or two nights on network TV, so I might meet somebody in the network and then I could get a real job.
Somebody may beat me, but they are going to have to bleed to do it.
You can lose when you outscore somebody in a game. And you can win when you’re outscored.
People have this perception of soul music of somebody shouting.
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.
Demons manifest themselves in people in different ways. For instance, out of nowhere, somebody can become very angry for no reason. That’s not just an emotion. That’s a demon.
Somebody hits me, I’m going to hit him back. Even if it does look like he hasn’t eaten in a while.
It is actually unbelievable that somebody would be deprived of his livelihood for expressing an opinion that he’s entitled to.
Information helps you to see that you’re not alone. That there’s somebody in Mississippi and somebody in Tokyo who all have wept, who’ve all longed and lost, who’ve all been happy. So the library helps you to see, not only that you are not alone, but that you’re not really any different from everyone else.
If somebody asks me whether I’d rather sink the winning putt in the Ryder Cup or win a major, it’s the major every day. World championship or Ryder Cup? Win a world championship. At the end of the day you’re going to be remembered for what you achieve in an individual sport.
I’ve never felt like I needed to change. I’ve always thought, ‘If you want somebody different, pick somebody else.’ But sure, criticism can sometimes still get to me. Some things are so malicious, they knock the wind out of you.
It’s a waste of energy to think about what somebody else is doing and how they doing it. I’ma just do what I do.
Just being the seeker, somebody whose open to spiritual enlightenment, is in itself the important thing and it’s the reward for being a seeker in this world.
I have been considerably picky for somebody who’s not a movie star, and sometimes I get frustrated.
Somebody’s boring me. I think it’s me.
The main three components are the blues, improvisation – which is some kind of element that people are trying to make it up – and swing, which means even though they’re making up music, they’re trying to make it up together. It feels great, like you’re having a great conversation with somebody.
You can’t stay mad at somebody who makes you laugh.
So I’ve seen life as one long learning process. And if I see – you know, if I fly on somebody else’s airline and find the experience is not a pleasant one, which it wasn’t in – 21 years ago, then I’d think, well, you know, maybe I can create the kind of airline that I’d like to fly on.
The idea is to improve somebody’s day. That’s how I’ve always viewed my job. I’m a distraction therapist. I make people’s problems go away for just a little bit.
In my opinion, the only real asset one has is one’s reputation, right? I mean, any company and institution can go belly up at any time. But if you have a good reputation, you know, you can usually find somebody who can – who thinks they can use what you have to offer.
If Copenhagen were a person, that person would be generous, beautiful, elderly, but with a flair. A human being that has certain propensities for quarrelling, filled with imagination and with appetite for the new and with respect for the old – somebody who takes good care of things and of people.
I mean, if you’re being directed very precisely by somebody who has admiration and who’s really smart, it’s great. If you’re being told what to do by a nincompoop – and luckily that hasn’t happened very often – it can be very frustrating.
I change during the course of a day. I wake and I’m one person, and when I go to sleep I know for certain I’m somebody else.
Everybody’s out to get something from somebody. ‘Gold diggers’ doesn’t just mean money, it can mean time, it can mean feelings. It can mean anything when you’re taking and not giving. When people don’t know how to reciprocate.
The only use for an atomic bomb is to keep somebody else from using one.
A lot of times, I was about to get a role, but then somebody called. The father or mother would call and a starlet would get it. If somebody is with someone and the heroine is his muse or girlfriend, then she would get the role. All this has happened to me.
I don’t want to be somebody else.
I learned to see myself and my role as a capitalist… as somebody who’s trying to harness, for myself and for society, the power of greed and the power of the will to acquire into something that makes the world a better place. That’s the version of capitalism that we want.
I feel like somebody who just is very understanding is my biggest thing – timing is a major issue for me – but also funny! Obviously I want someone really cute and fun and fresh for good Instagram pictures and that just makes me really happy.
God didn’t give up on me. I am somebody in God’s eyes… Let me be a prime example of how I’ve been through the storm and the rain, and I made it over.
I feel like there’s a dignity in silence and I think if I retaliate to negativity with negativity then we’ve evened out. And I don’t need to even that out because if somebody’s being negative, I need to be the better person.
Love somebody. Just one person. And then spread that to two. And as many as you can. You’ll see the difference it makes.
I try to push and find something awkward. The gems to me are truly awkward situations, and you have to have somebody who’s willing to fail because those can’t be conceived. They never play if they’re thought about and discussed too much. You have to create them right at the moment and look for something honest.
It’s always marvelous to have somebody who, you know, you feel understands and wants to encourage.
Everyone romanticizes somebody.
I think I probably think about myself as an actor, which is the way most people do. I think I’m good, I don’t think I’m great. I think I would hire somebody else to play me in the movie about me.
I speak directly to the people, and I know that the people of California want to have better leadership. They want to have great leadership. They want to have somebody that will represent them. And it doesn’t matter if you’re a Democrat or a Republican, young or old.
Wearing your hair natural is a positive statement about who you are. It’s not a protest to somebody else. It’s affirming you.
For me, a fragrance is another way of leaving an impression on somebody.
When I show up to act in a movie for somebody else, I just want to be nice and helpful and do what they want because I know how difficult it is to make a movie. I don’t want to cause any problems. So you show up and do your job, and I think if a director understands that, you don’t make a lot of demands.
It makes me uncomfortable to talk about meanings and things. It’s better not to know so much about what things mean. Because the meaning, it’s a very personal thing, and the meaning for me is different than the meaning for somebody else.
I just showed up at the Comedy Store. You keep showing up, and you keep showing up, and eventually, somebody notices.
There’s probably as many rules of thumb to wrestling as anything in the world, and then there’s just as many exceptions to every one of those rules because somebody doesn’t fit that thumb.
Columbo was never comfortable if somebody considered him unique or smart.
People have tried to corner the market on being offended, corner the market on language and corner the market on opinion. Should I lose my job ’cause I offended somebody? No, of course not. Your life should never be affected by public opinion.
If somebody knows me, they know for sure I’m from Poland because I’m playing for my country every tournament, every match. I’m staying in my hometown and my home country because that is where I feel comfortable. I feel good there.
It’s very tempting, when somebody says they like this about you, to want to do that over and over.
I feel like there are only three ultimate things you can do while you’re here: do what you love, love somebody, and create a life.
I do what I do. You like it, great. You don’t, go listen to somebody else. I’m stickin’ with the people who stuck with me.
I like simplicity. I like using natural sources. I like images to look natural – as though somebody sitting in a room by a lamp is being lit by that lamp.
I don’t even know where to start in terms of people having such an issue about color, especially being dark. I just think on different levels it’s ignorance; it’s no belief, no confidence, it’s insecurity, so you want to inflict it on somebody else.
There’s so much more to life than that, though I think that acting is fascinating because you can forget your own sorrow as you act and become somebody else.
Perfect is not on the menu. Nobody is going to be your ideal candidate. You can’t dream somebody up out of nothing that’s going to be the perfect candidate, so you do have to pick between a series of bad choices.
People have heard my music, but all my famous songs were made famous by somebody else… But that was my goal.
I can’t always control my body the way I want to, and I can’t control when I feel good or when I don’t. I can control how clear my mind is. And I can control how willing I am to step up if somebody needs me.
I really want to love somebody. I do. I just don’t know if it’s possible forever and ever.
When you run a part of the relay and pass on the baton, there is no sense of unfinished business in your mind. There is just the sense of having done your part to the best of your ability. That is it. The hope is to pass on the baton to somebody who will run faster and run a better marathon.
You don’t have to be somebody different to be important. You’re important in your own right.
Mornin’ ladies, my goodness don’t you look happy. Must be cuttin’ somebody up pretty good.
When I hear somebody sigh, ‘Life is hard,’ I am always tempted to ask, ‘Compared to what?’
I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage. But when you start playing around with constitutions, just to prohibit somebody who cares about another person, it just seems to me that’s not what America’s about. Usually, our constitutions expand liberties, they don’t contract them.
With DNA, you have to be able to tell which genes are turned on or off. Current DNA sequencing cannot do that. The next generation of DNA sequencing needs to be able to do this. If somebody invents this, then we can start to very precisely identify cures for diseases.
Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
I was looking for the people who were making the music inside the cabinet. I would look in there and see if I could find somebody who was making all this wonderful music.
A lot of times when you keep it real with somebody, you can’t expect them to keep it real with you.
Employee of the month is a good example of how somebody can be both a winner and a loser at the same time.
Those newspapers of the nation which most loudly cried dictatorship against me would have been the first to justify the beginnings of dictatorship by somebody else.
Why can’t somebody give us a list of things that everybody thinks and nobody says, and another list of things that everybody says and nobody thinks?
My philosophy is to do the best you can for somebody. Help. It’s not just what do you for yourself. It’s how you treat people decently. The golden rule. There isn’t big anything better than the golden rule. It’s in every major religion in one language or another.
I just talk just to talk. I like to see what other people think. There’s some things somebody tweets me every day where I’m like, ‘Wow, I never thought of this issue that way.’ It starts great conversation with people who I would never get a chance to actually communicate with.
I think it takes a strong man to be in a relationship with a strong woman. A lot of people hear the word ‘diva‘ and think of it as a negative. I see it as a positive. I want somebody who knows what they want out of life and isn’t afraid to show it.
I’m not somebody who gets teared up or anything, but I still look up at the stars, and it gives me hope, and it gives me energy. I think one of the things that we have to think about it is, we are all a part of this universe.
When you forgive somebody, it doesn’t necessarily mean you want to invite them to your table.
I think the cinematography in ‘Mr. Robot‘ is some of the best I’ve ever seen, honestly. Not even as being part of the show but as somebody who enjoys cinema and movies in film and TV.
My attitudes have changed, but somebody would have to read all my books to find out how they have.
I’ve never been more in love with anyone nearly half my age than I am today. I’d get married in a minute if I weren’t still married to somebody else.
I think comedy is a good way to help people change their minds. I think that if you’re laughing and getting a message across, it’s a lot easier than when somebody is screaming in your face.
You show me anybody that’s great in anything they do, I’ll show you somebody that’s persevered, demonstrated that mental toughness to overcome some obstacles and adversity.
If somebody’s looking at pictures of naked people and you go, ‘Oh I don’t want to see that,’ you’re lying. Cause naked people are always interesting. Always. Whether they’re beautiful, or naked or 500 pounds.
The more time you spend with somebody, the more your relationship grows.
Just go up to somebody on the street and say ‘You’re it!’ and then run away.
The minute you start compromising for the sake of massaging somebody’s ego, that’s it, game over.
If you look at the developments in the international scene over the past many years, we haven’t been able to resolve many problems and many crises, because we have approached them from a zero-sum perspective. My gain has always been defined as somebody else’s loss, and through that, we never resolve problems.
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.
I know my role on this team, and I’m expected to prepare and to perform every week and play well. I relish that opportunity – to be somebody the guys can count on week in and week out, to play really well. That’s what really motivates me: to make my coaches proud, my teammates proud, and the fans proud.
As long as I keep it real, I learn something from everyone. And when you view yourself as a student and not as somebody who’s bigger, there is still learning that can be done every day, and that keeps you open-minded and more ready to learn about life and love.
When you’re around somebody like E-40, all you can do is watch and learn, and soak up game.
When you invest your time, you make a goal and a decision of something that you want to accomplish. Whether it’s make good grades in school, be a good athlete, be a good person, go down and do some community service and help somebody who’s in need, whatever it is you choose to do, you’re investing your time in that.
Somebody said to me, ‘But the Beatles were anti-materialistic.’ That’s a huge myth. John and I literally used to sit down and say, ‘Now, let’s write a swimming pool.’
One of the strategies for doing first-person is to make the narrator very knowing, so that the reader is with somebody who has a take on everything they observe.
Well, there’s not a day goes by when I don’t get up and say thank you to somebody.
We need somebody who’s got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what it’s like to be a young teenage mom, the empathy to understand what it’s like to be poor or African-American or gay or disabled or old – and that’s the criterion by which I’ll be selecting my judges.
Comedy is surprises, so if you’re intending to make somebody laugh and they don’t laugh, that’s funny.
If somebody can make a joke about you on TV, that’s so beautiful. You’ve affected pop culture to that degree.
This is a revolution, damnit! We’re going to have to offend somebody!
How you use your voice is really important, and it’s really driven by context more than anything else, and your tone of voice will immediately begin to impact somebody’s mood and immediately how their brain functions.
Somebody who has been in a very bad wreck is going to be very conscientious about not speeding through a yellow light… You just learn so many good lessons when you go through a failed marriage.
It’s a shame to call somebody a ‘diva’ simply because they work harder than everybody else.
You cannot be mad at somebody who makes you laugh… it’s as simple as that.
