Euclid alone has looked on Beauty bare. Let all who prate of Beauty hold their peace, And lay them prone upon the earth and cease To ponder on themselves, the while they stare At nothing.
Beauty can't amuse you, but brainwork - reading, writing, thinking - can.
Helen Gurley Brown
Whereas you have someone like Houdini, who works really, really hard to get really, really famous, and then has actual intellectual ideas that he puts into the culture that stay there.
I've got a feeling that music might not be the most interesting place to be in the world of things.
Fanatics do not have faith - they have belief. With faith you let go. You trust. Whereas with belief you cling.
I love Lady Antebellum and Miranda Lambert - they write from the heart. But it's hard to find a country music lover in L.A. None of my friends really listen to it, and they hate getting in the car with me because I just blast Taylor Swift.
I deliberately did not read anything about the Vietnam War because I felt the politics of the war eclipsed what happened to the veterans. The politics were irrelevant to what this memorial was.
Enjoy failure and learn from it. You can never learn from success.
As the time goes by, you change, your learn new things, your attitude is different. For the moment, I'm still enjoying ski racing so much that it would be difficult for me to think about ending my career.
I love the simplicity, the ingredients, the culture, the history and the seasonality of Italian cuisine. In Italy people do not travel. They cook the way grandma did, using fresh ingredients and what is available in season.
I have a weird sense of humour. My dad's the same. We love watching 'Monty Python' together.
I am looking forward to learning at the knee of Paul Ryan. He doesn't strike me as a politician. He strikes me as an economist.
It is said that only a fool learns from his own mistakes, a wise man from the mistakes of others.
A man who never made a mistake, never made anything worth a darn.
A mistake at least proves that somebody stopped talking long enough to DO something.
We don't make mistakes, we only have happy accidents.
MISTAKES are the stepping stones that lead to future accomplishments.
There is nothing wrong with making mistakes. Just don't respond with errors.
Make the mistakes of yesterday your lessons for today.
Things could be worse. Suppose your errors were counted and published every day, like those of a baseball player.
It speaks volumes for a person that when placed in quite different situations, they display the same spirit of moderation.
Even moderation ought not to be practiced to excess.
I am a horrible visual artist. I can't fix a car, sew, knit, cook, etc. Statistically, there is more I don't do than do.
Act as though you cannot fail but keep a humble spirit.
I remember the mentoring experiences of some teachers that I had, like a second term home room teacher in public school that really was very helpful to me.
Sanford I. Weill
It's always well to be the smartest thinker, but is won't get you very far unless you're the plainest talker.
Profits are an opinion, cash is a fact.
Revenue is vanity... margin is sanity... cash is king.
People of small caliber are always carping. They are bent on showing their own superiority, their knowledge or prowess or good breeding.
Van Wyck Brooks
Money can't buy health, happiness, or what it did last year.
Money talks and often just says, Good Bye.
Money will buy a bed but not sleep; books but not brains; food but not appetite; finery but not beauty; a house but not a home; medicine but not health; luxuries but not culture; amusements but not happiness; religion but not salvation; a passport to everywhere but heaven.
Whenever death may surprise us, let it be welcome if our battle cry has reached even one receptive ear and another hand reaches out to take up our arms.
Once upon a time only Washington's face was on our money, now Washington's hands are on it too.
Money doesn't always bring happiness. A man with ten million dollars is no happier than a man with nine million dollars.
Money can't buy happiness; it can, however, rent it.
If you're going to lend money make sure somebody else is around. If you're going to give money make sure nobody else is around.
Anyone can be great with money. With money, greatness is not a talent but an obligation. The trick is to be great without money.
Many people convince themselves if it is economically necessary, it's morally right. That's not always the case.
Mother-in-law: A woman who destroys her son-in-law's peace of mind by giving him a piece of hers.
A Freudian slip is when you say one thing but mean your mother.
