Well, especially now I come to realize – and then – I would do my schooling which was three hours with a tutor and right after that I would go to the recording studio and record, and I’d record for hours and hours until it’s time to go to sleep.
The idea that you’re not a writer until you’re published is a lie.
Students who are interested in learning about the environment should not be dissuaded from doing so, but only if they have proved their proficiency in other basic courses, such as U.S. history. Until then, we need to focus on producing well-educated citizens steeped in their country’s history and mindful of their civic responsibilities.
I started taking my fiance, Justin, to some red carpet events I would go to, and a bowtie is often something that was required. We came across a lot of stylish bowties. We liked playing dress up for these events and we thought it would be fun to start a line, but it was never...
Until the company believes in itself, AOL didn’t have its own space and identity in the marketplace. The opportunity is to get out from under the negative history and figure out the value AOL offers for consumers and for publishers and advertisers.
Nobody taught me to play bottleneck. I just saw it and taught myself. I got an old bottle and steamed the label off, put it on the wrong finger, I basically did everything wrong until I met some of the Blues legends early in my career who taught me another way. I didn’t have anyone...
Sometimes an active policy is best advanced by doing nothing until the right time – or never.
Up until now, I had ideas that I wanted to try but didn’t have the opportunity to do them.
Until you are happy with who you are, you will never be happy because of what you have.
My foray into young adult lit was by no means planned. I wrote the first ‘Alfred Kropp’ book as an adult novel, which everyone loved but no one would publish – until I changed my protagonist from a thirty-something P.I. into a 15-year-old kid. After that, it was off to the races, and I am...
Everything I write doesn’t appear to be biography until later. I often say that I’ve never written about anything I’ve experienced. Of course, that’s not true. But it doesn’t appear familiar to me at all. And maybe that’s because I have to be in a kind of coma in order to write. If it appeared...
Be fair with others, but then keep after them until they’re fair with you.
I go through periods where I don’t shop at all, and then I go crazy and buy everything in sight. I never know what to wear, and I’m at my worst before an audition. I pull everything out of the closet, throw it on my bed. I’ll get entirely dressed and then take it all...
Nothing is improbable until it moves into past tense.
For me, acting was always a way to explore emotions – to dip into the well and really try to reach rock bottom down there. That was the most exciting part of it. I hadn’t found anything that really allowed me to do that until I came upon acting.
My best male friend is my best friend until he crosses me. We’re all protective of the self.
I’m probably an actor that tends to, instead of putting things on, think about it more in terms of taking away what’s not in the character, until I’m left with what is. If that makes sense. That’s probably a particularly American way of working, but maybe not. The end of any movie is a readjustment.
It’s not easy to be my sons because we’re very high profile. We try so hard to give them a normal life. I’m very, very tight with them about money. I don’t give that money until they ask, ‘I need 100 yuan for my lunch card,’ and so on. So they never have extra money.
Almost a quarter of our planet is a single mountain range and we didn’t enter it until after Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin went to the moon. So we went to the moon, played golf up there, before we went to the largest feature on our own planet.
Crime cases tend to be fascinating until you figure out what happened.
