That’s why, to experience that, you know for a fact that a human being is capable of so much more, because to go to that place and to step outside yourself and observe yourself do...
I thought I’d be a journalist, and only pursued acting intermittently while studying. My very first interview as a journalist was with David Usher of Moist, and he called the magazine the next day to...
My earliest memories are of watching ‘Star Trek’ and ‘MASH’ while my parents barbecued chicken in the back yard. I was an American kid, through and through.
New York is a much more bourgeois city, more of a tourist attraction than a muscular metropolis. It’s lost moxie and a rough energy, while gaining grace and friendliness. I love both versions of the...
I even lived on campus to get the college experience. I had five roommates and I still keep in touch with them while I’m on the road.
There are two kinds of talent, man-made talent and God-given talent. With man-made talent you have to work very hard. With God-given talent, you just touch it up once in a while.
I get inspired when I look at Tom Lennon, who did ‘Reno 911!’ for six seasons while writing huge movies and directing and also doing other pilots; he did that FX pilot, the ‘Star Trek’...
I was very lucky that while I was a chess player in a country where chess was not a big deal, I happened to be in the one city where there was a sprouting chess...
The band feels loose in all the right ways, and it’s just so cool looking out and seeing all of these people that I haven’t seen in a while.
While Social Security faces some long-term challenges, the system is not in crisis.
While I accept that there are certain things about my private life that will always be of interest to the public, it would be better if you give the same amount of attention to issues...

I tried to keep both arts alive, but the camera won. I found that while the camera does not express the soul, perhaps a photograph can!
I’ve got an image of me at the bottom of my garden sitting under my silver birch tree reading, while everyone else had gone somewhere exotic.
While Argentina, Brazil, and Chile – what in textbooks used to be called the ABC countries – seem settled into democratic politics and free market economics, the Andean countries are in disarray.
But reason always cuts a poor figure beside sentiment; the one being essentially restricted, like everything that is positive, while the other is infinite.
You know, we humans are programmed to think that big changes on the Earth happened a long time ago, or will happen a long time in the future. What we don’t realize is that they...
I think my gap adds character. A while ago, on the street, a guy yelled, ‘You could stick a gold through your front teeth!’ Which meant I could put a £1 coin between them. But...
We had the guys from X Men 2 do the cameras. They had a 360 camera that would go from one car, up in the air and over to another car in a continuous shot...
While we face economic obstacles that challenge every decision made in Washington, decisions made merely for political gain must stop. It’s time to restore civility in Congress. It’s time for action where action is needed...
Some months ago, while I was preparing a new work, I told a young cinema executive my intention of including in a soundtrack two themes from Bach. But when he asked me which has been...
The Anti-Slavery public have generously responded to our appeal, and sent the means to enable us to fit them out well, to pay their passages, supply them with many useful articles and give the Missionaries...
If you are lucky, you have your moment. But it is never more than a moment. You have to enjoy it while it lasts.
My daughter is a preschooler but I have only known her for a while. She is adopted.
Listen once in a while. It’s amazing what you can hear.
‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ in 1987 was a huge international hit followed by several more, and while I appreciated how lucky I was, it catapulted me into a completely new world and simply took...
I think that the Western went away for a while because part of its function was that it used to be America’s action film.
For me, fielding is everything – it is a passion that comes from within. You can get a bad ball while you bat, and your bowling may not always be up there, but you are...
With movies, you get to be in a bubble while you’re creating it, and it’s not until it comes out that you see whether people like it or not.
I believe that you’re here on Earth for a short time, and while you’re here, you shouldn’t forget it.
What does it mean to be an American? While each of us may have our own specific answer to that question, we likely can agree on the basic principles of America: freedom, equal opportunity, and...
But so far, you know who’s been violating the nuclear nonproliferation pact day and night? Those who signed it. Iran, Iraq, Libya and Iran violates it while calling for Israel’s destruction and racing to develop...
While I believe that when you are in the glamour industry, you have to look your best, I also believe being skinny is not ‘hot and happening.’
There is only so much negotiating and maneuvering that can be done while the aircraft is under siege in mid-air. Therefore, the best way to put a stop to hijacking is by having high levels...
I don’t think that anybody should be ruling in or ruling out anything while we are conducting diplomacy.
While writing ‘Half of a Yellow Sun,’ I enjoyed playing with minor things: inventing a train station in a town that has none, placing towns closer to each other than they are, changing the chronology...
While there’s been much progress on terrorism, there’s still much work to do and it is very important that the countries work together in order to address this threat together.
I grew up dancing, and for a while in college, I was a gym rat. I finally realized… I’m going to create a little more balance in my life and make exercise something that I...
For the last 15 years that I have been performing, all I ever wanted to do was transcend poetry to the world. See, it wasn’t enough for me to write a book. It wasn’t enough...
Philanthropy is not about giving money but about solving problems. While well-meaning, the idea of writing a check and calling it ‘philanthropy’ is extremely short-sighted and unfortunately, extremely pervasive.
You go from Olympic wrestling into pro wrestling, and it’s a very difficult transition, but if you make it, you can earn a great living while at the same time giving amateur wrestling a lot...
I’ve written in every imaginable location; a repurposed closet, the kitchen table, the bleachers while my kids had basketball practice, the front seat of the car when they were at soccer. In airports. On trains....
I got into trouble a while ago for saying that I thought the internet led to increased literacy – people scolded me about the shocking grammar to be found online – but I was talking...
Israel is the agent and surrogate of the United States and as such is treated entirely differently from every other country in the region. How can anyone expect Iran to accept that it is right...
While my six-song EP is unlikely to set any sales records, it’s one of my biggest personal achievements – on par with starting my own company. On par with selling my own company.
President Obama wants to increase the size of government and raise taxes, while I support less government and more individual freedom.
I worked for Sam Peckinpah on quite a bit of action in his films, and he got excited once in a while.
While most of the music I write is instrumental, I love to use the human voice as another instrument.
For a long while, I was really against Twitter. I mean, who cares if I’m in an airport or had broccoli for dinner?
Turkey is widely envied while there are very serious troubles in the world economy.
Anyone I know who’s almost died has come out of it, at least for a while, looking at things differently.
