It's impossible, I think, however much I'd become disillusioned politically or evolve into a post-political person, I don't think I'd ever change my view that socialism is the best political moment humans have ever come up with.
I do not say goodbye. I believe that's one of the bullshitiest words ever invented. It's not like you're given the choice to say bad-bye, or awful-bye, or couldn't-care-less-about-you-bye. Everytime you leave, it's supposed to be a good one.
Poetry is the mother-tongue of the human race.
Johann Georg Hamann
Outside, among your fellows, among strangers, you must perceive appearances, a hundred things you cannot do; but inside, the terrible freedom!
Ralph Waldo Emerson
A man must be willing to die for justice. Death is an inescapable reality and men die daily, but good deeds live forever.
A man might write such stuff for ever, if he would abandon his mind to it.
Anywhere I see suffering, that is where I want to be, doing what I can.
Princess of Wales Diana
I wear my heart on my sleeve.
It is a weakness that I lead from my heart, and not my head?
The greatest problem in the world today is intolerance. Everyone is so intolerant of each other.
I have a woman's instinct and it's always a good one.
Humor has always been important to me. If there is a shield of faith that you can keep up against difficulties, humor is the Teflon coating.
Look, I don't want to wax philosophic, but I will say that if you're alive you've got to flap your arms and legs, you've got to jump around a lot, for life is the very opposite of death, and therefore you must at very least think noisy and colorfully, or you're not alive.
The kindness and affection from the public have carried me through some of the most difficult periods, and always your love and affection have eased the journey.
Life is just a journey
I remember when I used to sit on hospital beds and hold people?s hands, people used to be shocked because they?d never seen this before. To me it was quite normal.
My first thoughts are that I should not let people down, that I should support them and love them.
There's nothing deeper than love. In fairy tales, the princesses kiss the frogs, and the frogs become princes. In real life,the princesses kiss princes, and the princes turn into frogs.
In order to be able to give a girlfriend the amount of time she deserves, you would need time, and I just can't give her that. So, rather than being selfish or stupid enough to go into a relationship, it's just been easier to be single.
I didn't have a lot of communication with Elvis. You had to go through a barricade to get to Elvis. It was people hanging on every word, and I felt very uncomfortable a lot of times.
The truth is, after Boys Don't Cry, I realized how few and far between the great roles are. I am beyond thankful for finding Million Dollar Baby.
A mans manners are a mirror in which he shows his portrait.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
This time, instead of moving oceans and healing planets, let's get our bills in order and pay down the debt so we control our own future.
When a Cabinet Minister who is sacked for telling lies is re-appointed, in the face of every constitutional convention, only for the same man to be sacked again from the same Cabinet for the same offence by the same Prime Minister no wonder the public are cynical about politics.
Anybody who thinks that getting a communication from a voter in your district is spam - that guy is pork. Roast pork unless he changes his point of view.
I had found English audiences highly satisfactory. They are the best listeners in the world. Perhaps the music-lovers of some of our larger cities equal the English, but I do not believe they can be surpassed in that respect.
John Philip Sousa
We are so reliant on power and technology for everything.
I hope to refine music, study it, try to find some area that I can unlock. I don't quite know how to explain it but it's there. These can't be the only notes in the world, there's got to be other notes some place, in some dimension, between the cracks on the piano keys.
I'm not looking for sympathy at all.
Hope, deceiving as it is, serves at least to lead us to the end of our lives by an agreeable route.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
The good thing about L.A. is that there's always someone more famous 100 yards away from me.
It is a matter of shame that in the morning the birds should be awake earlier than you.
I love sports, as all Bostonians seem to. I love books and movies, as all writers seem to.
Even the striving for equality by means of a directed economy can result only in an officially enforced inequality - an authoritarian determination of the status of each individual in the new hierarchical order.
Friedrich August von Hayek
My religion encompasses all religions. I believe in God, I believe in the universe. I believe you are god, I believe I am god; I believe the earth is god and the universe is god. We're all god.
Emigration, forced or chosen, across national frontiers or from village to metropolis, is the quintessential experience of our time.
The relationship between reader and characters is very difficult. It is even more peculiar than the relationship between the writer and his characters.
Guillermo Cabrera Infante
What is there that money will not do?
Playing and singing at the same time is pretty cool, but sometimes it's difficult to know when you can just really let go a bit because you've got to get back to bloody microphone and sing some stuff.
Success is a beast. And it actually puts the emphasis on the wrong thing. You get away with more instead of looking within.
Everywhere that freedom stirs, let tyrants fear.
