I’m always thinking about creating. My future starts when I wake up every morning… Every day I find something creative to do with my life.
When I wake up, I expect things to be good. If they’re not, then I try to set about trying to make them as good as I can ’cause I know I’m gonna have to live that day anyway. So why not try to make the most of it if you can? Some days, they pan out a little better than others, but you still gotta always just try.
Brand is just a perception, and perception will match reality over time. Sometimes it will be ahead, other times it will be behind. But brand is simply a collective impression some have about a product.
Climate change knows no borders. It will not stop before the Pacific islands and the whole of the international community here has to shoulder a responsibility to bring about a sustainable development.

Financial freedom is available to those who learn about it and work for it.

Not only do I not know what’s going on, I wouldn’t know what to do about it if I did.
I do not love to be printed on every occasion, much less to be dunned and teased by foreigners about mathematical things or to be thought by our own people to be trifling away my time about them when I should be about the king’s business.
Think about what people are doing on Facebook today. They’re keeping up with their friends and family, but they’re also building an image and identity for themselves, which in a sense is their brand. They’re connecting with the audience that they want to connect to. It’s almost a disadvantage if you’re not on it now.
Allah says in the Qur’an not to despise one another. So the criterion in Islam is not color or social status. It’s who is most righteous. If I go to a mosque – and I’m a basketball player with money and prestige – if I go to a mosque and see an imam, I feel inferior. He’s better than me. It’s about knowledge.
Life is busy. There are daily concerns and obligations that have to be met, and to take time to think about how precious and special a human life is that you only get one, and that every wasted minute is lost. You can’t get it back.
Life is all about having a good time.
I believe that you are only in control of so much. So whatever you are not in control of you can’t worry about.
At its heart, engineering is about using science to find creative, practical solutions. It is a noble profession.
I love editing. It’s one of my favorite parts about filmmaking.
If I am a cup maker, I’m interested in making the best cup I possibly can. My effort goes into that cup, not what people think about it.
I do know one thing about me: I don’t measure myself by others’ expectations or let others define my worth.
If they’re not talking about you, you’re not doing something; you’re not doing anything. So if they’re talking about you, you may be doing something right. And when they talk bad about you, you just use it for motivation.
Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering – because you can’t take it in all at once.
If you always think about your dreams or goals, work steadfastly towards them and continue to challenge yourself, you will definitely be able to realise those dreams or goals.
Talking about dreams is like talking about movies, since the cinema uses the language of dreams; years can pass in a second, and you can hop from one place to another. It’s a language made of image. And in the real cinema, every object and every light means something, as in a dream.
I was reading the dictionary. I thought it was a poem about everything.
You can tell a lot about a person by their handwriting.
My father used to have an expression. He’d say, ‘Joey, a job is about a lot more than a paycheck. It’s about your dignity. It’s about respect. It’s about your place in your community.’
I think being stylish is about being you.
The world needs new leadership, but the new leadership is about working together.

I don’t care much about music. What I like is sounds.
The more I think about it, the more I realize there is nothing more artistic than to love others.
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.
You go through life wondering what is it all about but at the end of the day it’s all about family.
No one gossips about other people’s secret virtues.
As individuals, people are inherently good. I have a somewhat more pessimistic view of people in groups. And I remain extremely concerned when I see what’s happening in our country, which is in many ways the luckiest place in the world. We don’t seem to be excited about making our country a better place for our kids.
I learned no detail was too small. It was all about the details.
Lack of something to feel important about is almost the greatest tragedy a man may have.
I’m a very private person. I like staying home and doing my stuff. I hate people invading on my privacy. I hate talking about my private life.
A man’s character always takes its hue, more or less, from the form and color of things about him.
Money is just a consequence. I always say to my team, ‘Don’t worry too much about profitability. If you do your job well, the profitability will come.’

When you think about it, department stores are kind of like museums.
Vision 2030 is about a lot of big opportunities, so Aramco is one of them, Neom another opportunity.
Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.
Dishonesty is all about the small acts we can take and then think, ‘No, this not real cheating.’ So if you think that the main mechanism is rationalization, then what you come up with, and that’s what we find, is that we’re basically trying to balance feeling good about ourselves.
It’s about working hard, resting when you need to, leading a healthy life, and having a support structure around you. These factors help you improve.
When I was a kid, there was no collaboration; it’s you with a camera bossing your friends around. But as an adult, filmmaking is all about appreciating the talents of the people you surround yourself with and knowing you could never have made any of these films by yourself.
It is possible to become discouraged about the injustice we see everywhere. But God did not promise us that the world would be humane and just. He gives us the gift of life and allows us to choose the way we will use our limited time on earth. It is an awesome opportunity.
Trust is hard to come by. That’s why my circle is small and tight. I’m kind of funny about making new friends.
Cooking is all about people. Food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together. No matter what culture, everywhere around the world, people get together to eat.
I’m still learning, and that’s what life is about.
For me, success is a state of mind. I feel like success isn’t about conquering something; it’s being happy with who you are.
I’ve got nothing against plastic surgery at all. I know lots of people, young and old, who’ve had it. The point about good surgery is you can’t see it. The important thing is not to go crazy – and not to go to a bad surgeon.
It’s always great to engage with people. You never know who you can make an effect on. And I love interacting with the fans, hearing what they have to say and joking around with them. Anytime I can reach out online and give encouragement, motivate people, be a better citizen, that’s what it’s all about, man.
Personally, I’ve learned about perseverance: when you hear the word ‘No,’ and when you hear rejection, that it’s not always final. And that timing is everything, and you have to stay the course and just keep working hard and know that, when your time comes, that it will be sweet and that it will be the perfect time.
With genetic engineering, we will be able to increase the complexity of our DNA, and improve the human race. But it will be a slow process, because one will have to wait about 18 years to see the effect of changes to the genetic code.

Life is too short to worry about anything. You had better enjoy it because the next day promises nothing.

The only thing we know about the future is that it will be different.
If you haven’t got anything nice to say about anybody, come sit next to me.
The great thing about getting older is that you become more mellow. Things aren’t as black and white, and you become much more tolerant. You can see the good in things much more easily rather than getting enraged as you used to do when you were young.
Success isn’t about the end result, it’s about what you learn along the way.
For me, life is about being positive and hopeful, choosing to be joyful, choosing to be encouraging, choosing to be empowering.
It’s all about the experience and having a good time and connecting with the fans.
In human intercourse the tragedy begins, not when there is misunderstanding about words, but when silence is not understood.
Perfectionism is not the same thing as striving to be our best. Perfectionism is not about healthy achievement and growth; it’s a shield.
It’s always hard to deal with injuries mentally, but I like to think about it as a new beginning. I can’t change what happened, so the focus needs to go toward healing and coming back stronger than before.

Caring about others, running the risk of feeling, and leaving an impact on people, brings happiness.
On a motorcycle, you can’t really think about more than where you are. There’s a freedom that comes with that – from stress, worry, sweating the small stuff.
We’re taught Lord Acton’s axiom: all power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. I believed that when I started these books, but I don’t believe it’s always true any more. Power doesn’t always corrupt. Power can cleanse. What I believe is always true about power is that power always reveals.
One of the nice things about getting older is that you come to understand that you can integrate multiple aspects of your life together. When you’re young, you think everything has to be binary, as that’s exactly how you feel at that age.
I don’t think I’ve had love at first sight. But, I’ve definitely had moments where I’ve seen a person, and I’m like, ‘Wow, there is something different about you, and I really want to get to know you.’
My grades put me in about 5,000th place in all of South Korea. If I kept going down that path, I would’ve become a successful man with a regular job. However, I was positive I’d be number one in the country as a rapper. So I asked my mother whether she wanted to have a son who was a first-place rapper, or a 5,000th-place student.
Life’s short. Anything could happen, and it usually does, so there is no point in sitting around thinking about all the ifs, ands and buts.
Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It is already tomorrow in Australia.
That’s the funny thing about time. It is only in looking back that it’s easy to connect the dots. To see exactly why everything needed to happen the way that it did.
Some men play golf. I’ve got this crazy thing about maintaining our nation’s maritime heritage.
I can stand brute force, but brute reason is quite unbearable. There is something unfair about its use. It is hitting below the intellect.
I am about as detailed as a shadow.
Don’t lie about anything, ever. Lying leads to Hell.
Because you know what happens when you say ‘hello‘ or ‘good morning?’ You make a connection. And isn’t that what being human is all about?
I think electricity will create a new world. I feel like the world will change a lot with electricity, and I wonder how it will change, it’s scary, and it’s going to be fun. I think there are so many things to think about when it comes to electric cars.
Dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you.
Life is too short and too sweet to complain about the silly things.
Popeye was right about spinach: dark green, leafy vegetables are the healthiest food on the planet. As whole foods go, they offer the most nutrition per calorie.
When you’re challenged to the extreme, you learn so much about yourself. And when you’re willing to give that ultimate sacrifice, when you’re willing to tackle a job or a task or a mission head-on and give 100%, you can achieve amazing things because you’re almost fearless.
I am the type where I don’t worry about anything else but how to top what I did yesterday. My main goal is to top what I did before.

New technology is not good or evil in and of itself. It’s all about how people choose to use it.
It’s important to surround yourself with good people, interesting people, young people, young ideas. Go places, learn new stuff. Look at the world with wonder – don’t be tired about it.
Being a father has been, without a doubt, my greatest source of achievement, pride and inspiration. Fatherhood has taught me about unconditional love, reinforced the importance of giving back and taught me how to be a better person.
History is an account, mostly false, of events, mostly unimportant, which are brought about by rulers, mostly knaves, and soldiers, mostly fools.
The challenge of life, I have found, is to build a resume that doesn’t simply tell a story about what you want to be, but it’s a story about who you want to be.
Anyone who tries to make a distinction between education and entertainment doesn’t know the first thing about either.
Progressive art can assist people to learn not only about the objective forces at work in the society in which they live, but also about the intensely social character of their interior lives. Ultimately, it can propel people toward social emancipation.
Climbing Mount Everest was the biggest mistake I’ve ever made in my life. I wish I’d never gone. I suffered for years of PTSD and still suffer from what happened. I’m glad I wrote a book about it. But, you know, if I could go back and relive my life, I would never have climbed Everest.

If you feel good about who you are inside, it will radiate.
When one makes a Revolution, one cannot mark time; one must always go forward – or go back. He who now talks about the ‘freedom of the press‘ goes backward, and halts our headlong course towards Socialism.
If we are all in agreement on the decision – then I propose we postpone further discussion of this matter until our next meeting to give ourselves time to develop disagreement and perhaps gain some understanding of what the decision is all about.

If you think nobody cares about you, try missing a couple of payments.
The word theatre comes from the Greeks. It means the seeing place. It is the place people come to see the truth about life and the social situation.
The film is made in the editing room. The shooting of the film is about shopping, almost. It’s like going to get all the ingredients together, and you’ve got to make sure before you leave the store that you got all the ingredients. And then you take those ingredients and you can make a good cake – or not.
Evolution is all about looking forward.
I don’t like to commit myself about heaven and hell – you see, I have friends in both places.
Freedom in capitalist society always remains about the same as it was in ancient Greek republics: Freedom for slave owners.

People’s behavior makes sense if you think about it in terms of their goals, needs, and motives.

I drive way too fast to worry about cholesterol.
I’ve got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby.
Capitalism is against the things that we say we believe in – democracy, freedom of choice, fairness. It’s not about any of those things now. It’s about protecting the wealthy and legalizing greed.
Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.
I don’t have regrets, life is too short. You have to think about the positives and move forward.
We need to start identifying the triggers that aggravate mental health issues in our society – bullying, social media negativity and anxiety, gender based violence, substance abuse, stigma around issues such as maternal issues, etc., and we need to speak up about these more and get to the source of the problems.
The American Dream is a term that is often used but also often misunderstood. It isn’t really about becoming rich or famous. It is about things much simpler and more fundamental than that.
Never make predictions, especially about the future.
People with high blood pressure, diabetes – those are conditions brought about by life style. If you change the life style, those conditions will leave.
Really, every day is the perfect day to boss up. Every day that you wake up is a perfect day to boss up. It’s all about continuing to put one foot in front of the next. That’s what it’s about. Whatever you think you’re going through, just put one foot in front of the next.
To establish true self-esteem we must concentrate on our successes and forget about the failures and the negatives in our lives.
It makes no sense to worry about things you have no control over because there’s nothing you can do about them, and why worry about things you do control? The activity of worrying keeps you immobilized.
Nobody is bothered about an institution more than its alumni.
People don’t care about what someone says about you in a movie – or even what you say, right? They care about what you build. And if you can make something that makes people’s life better, then that’s something that’s really good.
We’re so engaged in doing things to achieve purposes of outer value that we forget the inner value, the rapture that is associated with being alive, is what it is all about.

There are a terrible lot of lies going about the world, and the worst of it is that half of them are true.
A person who sees a problem is a human being; a person who finds a solution is visionary; and the person who goes out and does something about it is an entrepreneur.
I don’t give a damn what people say about me. I like me the way I am, and who cares what other people say?
Fairy tales to me are never happy, sweet stories. They’re moral stories about overcoming the dark side and the bad.
What is Apple, after all? Apple is about people who think ‘outside the box,’ people who want to use computers to help them change the world, to help them create things that make a difference, and not just to get a job done.
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.
Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.
No man can put a chain about the ankle of his fellow man without at last finding the other end fastened about his own neck.
I try to keep in mind that it’s a long journey. It’s not a race. It’s about staying focused, continuing to do good work, make my family and community proud; that’s all I really want to do… and pay my bills.
Every kid goes through puberty, wondering what to do about girls and struggling with homework, and every adult has been through that.
We’re just enthusiastic about what we do.
History is a pack of lies about events that never happened told by people who weren’t there.
What an artist is trying to do for people is bring them closer to something, because of course art is about sharing. You wouldn’t be an artist unless you wanted to share an experience, a thought.

I don’t care about what nobody say or how nobody feel. I’m happy, I’m living my life, and that’s what it is.
The basic fact about human existence is not that it is a tragedy, but that it is a bore. It is not so much a war as an endless standing in line.
It’s not just about winning or losing, but to learn about teamwork, learn about sportsmanship, learn about discipline. The value of working together for a common goal. Have the emphasis on fundamentals, not just games.
Attitude and enthusiasm play a big part in my life. I get excited about the things that inspire me. I also believe in laughing and having a good time.
God’s plan for enlarging His kingdom is so simple – one person telling another about the Savior. Yet we’re busy and full of excuses. Just remember, someone’s eternal destiny is at stake. The joy you’ll have when you meet that person in heaven will far exceed any discomfort you felt in sharing the gospel.
Plastic surgery and breast implants are fine for people who want that, if it makes them feel better about who they are. But, it makes these people, actors especially, fantasy figures for a fantasy world. Acting is about being real being honest.
Learning another language is not only learning different words for the same things, but learning another way to think about things.
When I was a sophomore at USC, I was a socialist, pretty much to the left. But not when I left the university. I quickly got wise. I’d read about what had happened to Russia in 1917 when the Communists took over.
There is beauty in our roots. Sometimes we think our roots are shameful, and people tell you that you’re no good or your ancestors are no good or that you come from a neighborhood of no hope and terrible crime. But it’s about the beauty of those places, and I carry that with me.
Everybody is interested in success, but nobody cares about the process behind it.
There is a painful joke that Europeans often tell of their Gallic neighbors: God created France, the most beautiful country in the world with so much good in it, and ended up feeling guilty about it. He had to do something to make it fair. And so, he created the French people.
It is not so important to be serious as it is to be serious about the important things. The monkey wears an expression of seriousness which would do credit to any college student, but the monkey is serious because he itches.
There’s three things men always talk about – women, sports, and cars.
Memory… is the diary that we all carry about with us.
I think we all have different personalities… and even in relationships, we can be called psycho, and we can be called sweet, based on what the person feels about you.

Half of being smart is knowing what you are dumb about.
Don’t worry about being a star, worry about doing good work, and all that will come to you.
The good part about getting older is you stop trying to prove anything to anyone, including yourself. All you are in the pursuit of is collecting experiences – beautiful, fragile little soap bubbles that you store in your heart, and every once in a while you pull one out and gaze at the delicate pictures it shows you.
People gossip. People are insecure, so they talk about other people so that they won’t be talked about. They point out flaws in other people to make them feel good about themselves. I think at any age or any social class, that’s present.
Football is a game about feelings and intelligence.
Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
Leadership is about doing the right thing, even if it going against a vast number of naysayers and mediocre people.
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.
If my leg falls off, I’ll get a prosthetic. There’d be no deep sadness about. I’d just get on with it! It’s called life, and I love life. You have to be positive, and you have to crack on no matter what.
You hear a lot about God these days: God, the beneficent; God, the all-great; God, the Almighty; God, the most powerful; God, the giver of life; God, the creator of death. I mean, we’re hearing about God all the time, so we better learn how to deal with it. But if we know anything about God, God is arbitrary.
Whatever you go into, you have to go in there to be the best. There’s no formulas. It’s all about passion and honesty and hard work. It might look glamorous, but it takes a lot of hard work. The blessing with the arts is that you can do it forever.
We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.
You can’t know what you don’t know. You can’t know about things you have yet to discover.

Football is about sacrifice, dedication, a lot of work, and friendship off the pitch.
In the end it’s about the work, not an award you get for the work.
I feel there is something unexplored about woman that only a woman can explore.
We don’t know a millionth of one percent about anything.
All of the biggest technological inventions created by man – the airplane, the automobile, the computer – says little about his intelligence, but speaks volumes about his laziness.
I think the worst thing you can do about a situation is nothing.
I learned that life is filled with ups and downs and it’s just about how you react to them.
One way to feel good about yourself is to love yourself… to take care of yourself.
I think people generally are lost, as they keep thinking about what is going to happen and what they have done. They are not alive anymore. The art of listening is missing. In their head, they are doing something else.

The hardest thing about winning is to continue to win, and I think human instinct says ‘OK, I’ve done this before. I got it, let’s just keep doing what we’re doing.’
Fashion is about dreaming and making other people dream.
You may not be thinking about politics, but politics is thinking about you.
When you look good, you feel good. Confidence with what you’re wearing is very important. If you feel good, you will always perform your best without worrying about anything.
It is the characteristic excellence of the strong man that he can bring momentous issues to the fore and make a decision about them. The weak are always forced to decide between alternatives they have not chosen themselves.
That’s the good thing about being president, I can do whatever I want.
College isn’t in everyone’s hearts. I am living proof, though, that school doesn’t mess up your plans. It gives you more experiences to write about.
I never worry about being driven to drink; I just worry about being driven home.
Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it, for that determines our success or failure. The way you think about a fact may defeat you before you ever do anything about it. You are overcome by the fact because you think you are.
No matter what you do, people are always going to have something negative to say about it. You could spend your life constantly trying to seek people’s approval and validation, but there is always going to be someone that has something negative to say about what you’re doing.
Microsoft is not about greed. It’s about innovation and fairness.
Hands-on experience is the best way to learn about all the interdisciplinary aspects of robotics.
For me, honestly, it’s not about individual accomplishments, individual award. It’s about what I’ve got to do and how I can contribute to the team.
There have to be reasons that you get up in the morning and you want to live. Why do you want to live? What’s the point? What inspires you? What do you love about the future? If the future does not include being out there among the stars and being a multi-planet species, I find that incredibly depressing.
Spirituality is not a formula; it is not a test. It is a relationship. Spirituality is not about competency; it is about intimacy. Spirituality is not about perfection; it is about connection. The way of the spiritual life begins where we are now in the mess of our lives.
We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee.
Every word, facial expression, gesture, or action on the part of a parent gives the child some message about self-worth. It is sad that so many parents don’t realize what messages they are sending.

Sustainability is no longer about doing less harm. It’s about doing more good.
