Being on TV in front of people is a lot different than sitting in a dark
room with a microphone

I still care about people but it would be so much easier not to care. I don’t want to get too close; I don’t like to touch things.
I could care less

When you’re younger, you go out and you’re convivial because you have to be. But once you don’t have to meet people anymore, what’s your motivation

People often say that I have a child’s eye

Sleep is over-rated. Have you ever noticed
how it’s always recommended to people anybody
with half a brain can see need to wake
When a leader in the Church inspires council
members with vision, he helps them focus on their real mission
so that they are ministering to people rather than merely administering programs.
I don’t play golf
or all those things people normally
do for business. I do parties. That’s where I bring people in, showcase
ideas and, in the end, do deals
And I like people. I like to know what you’re really up to. I’m a bit of a nosey
. Why do they do the things they do? Why are they prepared
to do the things they do to get what they want? When? Where? Who?
I want all people to be Indians
last and nothing else but Indians.
I don’t read like other people do – back and forth
, across the page. I tend to scan
a page at a time.
I think some people are under the impression that you can simply just shoot it on blue, and then it’s all done in post
. But no, you really need to understand the pipeline
, from beginning to end.
People with high blood

. If you change the life style, those conditions will leave.
One of the great ironies of the social media era is that some of the least social people in the world created it.
the good people around you. Don’t let them go.
People who have let go of themselves are so pure that the world cannot harm
I’m always on a red carpet
. . . the other day I thought, this ain’t bad. You can meet people on it.
I’ve been invited
to the White House
about five times. I think the greatest thing
would be if they actually invited everybody to the White House every night… they’d just take about 500 people a night. Everybody would just love this country because it’s so thrilling
to go there. It really is.
The older I get, the more I realize
I’m becoming people’s role models
and that’s freaky
to me. That’s not what you intend
to do when you set out to be a musician
, to be a little 14-year-old’s role model.
People ask me all the time, ‘What keeps you up at night?’ And I say, ‘Spicy
People ask me all the time, ‘What keeps you up at night?’ And I say, ‘Spicy Mexican food, weapons

The only way you’re going to save things in life
is through love, and that’s what we’re trying to do …. make people fall in love with Florida

sometimes…and most people are vaguely miserable most of the time. The trick
is to scrap
your way from the most-of-the-time to the some-of-the-time category
I like the sense of the road
passing my eyes. It’s always a fascinating
experience to come into a new city…the sense of the people changing
, the food changing, everything changing, the art.
16th century science and magic
. I thought it was strange that people were interested in the same kinds of things my research
was about. The more I thought about it, the more intriguing
and pretty soon I was writing a novel about a reluctant witch
and a 1500-year-old vampire
All Buddhas and ordinary people
are just one mind. This mind is beyond all measurements
, oppositions: this very being is it; as soon as you stir
your mind you turn away from it.
A story is the relationship that you develop between who you are, or who you potentially
are, and the infinite world.
I love people. I was born loving people.

I think when I finally
got it in my head that I was going to do the story, I wanted to avoid doing what I thought people wanted me to do.
Apologies do make a difference
. Believe it or not, research shows people often prefer them over money.
I think I prioritize
other people’s opinions
of me very highly
, which is not necessarily a good thing – it’s a thing that causes a lot of anxiety.
[…] evidence is now coming out showing
was colonized by Western people over 15,000 years ago.
Poverty makes people sub-human Excess of wealth makes people inhuman
There are tens, perhaps hundreds of millions of people living in poverty
who might readily
seek to enter a Western country if the opportunity is there.
Escape into the dream. Escape, a key thing charged against these drugs, that they are for escapists
. I think the people who make this charge hardly dare dream to what degree they are escapist.

Knowing that we can be loved exactly as we are gives us all the best opportunity
for growing into the healthiest of people.
Ordinary people are capable
of doing extraordinary things, and that’s what it’s all about. They must count.
People who don’t know me sometimes call me
Someone once said that many bad policies
are just good policies that have been carried
too far. For example, we have taken tolerance to such an extreme that we tolerate
into our country of millions of intolerant
people who hate millions of Americans who are already here.
The last thing Jews
need is to create tension with their best friends. And the last thing Christians
need is a renewal
of Christian hatred
toward Jesus’ people.
I’m 47, I have gray hair
, and yet people still come up to me on the street who are in their twenties
, who weren’t even born when ‘Singles
‘ was made… well, they were pretty tiny
, anyway… and they say
, ‘Oh, I love that movie.’ And I always say, ‘How OLD are you?’
I think my way
of being “funny” is just saying things that people think but have learned
not to say, whereas, I haven’t learned not to say them.
A lot of the kinship
that people notice is not coincidental. I was very impressionable
and trying to find my role models when I was twelve or thirteen
There’s some people who say big philanthropy is not such a good idea
that somehow you have enormous power and you’re not elected and that that may not be such a good idea to have people with enormous wealth to have so much influence.
People are just greedy
animals, after all.
The success of the dinner depends
as much upon the company as the cook. Discordant elements
– people invited alphabetically, or to pay off debts – are fatal.
I don’t actually like people. I’m a loner
and if I had my way I’d just walk
every day, never talk to anyone and then die.
he say that all we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history. I knew people who can’t even learn from what happened this morning. Hegel must have been taking the long view.
I don’t like show business

to work with people who know and trust you.
People have tried to put me in a box
my whole life
. I’m too tall. I’m too pretty. Too Miss USA. Wonder Woman
woman in the world. And all of that. It doesn’t matter because I’ve gone my own way and have tried to approach
my career from a gut level
, doing what I thought was right.
people out of a game is like learning to ride
a bicycle–once you get the hang
of it, it can be a lot of fun.
Entrepreneurs are visionaries
– they see things other people don’t see.
When the bad stuff
was really intense in my life, it was really what you would call writer’s block
. Your facility
is just not as good because you feel so bad. I’ve heard of people right on the verge
of suicide coming up with some of their best work
. I wish I could think of an example, other than Van Gogh
It’s not like you do ‘SNL
‘ and then get handed
movie roles. You work, you audition
for stuff and try to get it. I think, a lot of people, it’s the goal to be in movies or just to be working in general. But yeah
, some of us get lucky and get some movie roles, and it’s nice.

People say you’re flirting
with death but really you’re flirting with life.
I think people need something to believe in, because they don’t want to have control over their own lives. They’d rather be able to blame
it on an unknown being, or a greater
god, or a greater spirit of sorts. And I think it’s easier for them to blame it on that.
Actually, most people don’t think I have too much sense because I would rather be fairly
intelligent and act dumb instead of not having any sense at all and try to act smart.
Every year in my life, I trust fewer and fewer people.
The best results come when people believe in and feel strongly about the music they are playing. Just as composers
write for certain types
, performers are also looking for certain things.

. It’s really more of about being where I want to be with people I care about.
It’s important to try to get people to think about women’s wellness
We would like to get to a point in our society where people really are colorblind
and this message would not have to be told anymore. Unfortunately, we’re not there yet.
People have sort of a problem trying to see an end to a situation as being positive
] is about curbing state power to let people be and do what they want. Liberalism
is about using state power to make people do and be what liberals want. And that makes all the difference

and I was never really forced
to do much of anything, as a kid.
Empathy for the people you’re working with and being aware of their needs…that’s the “big kahuna” in managing people
How do we remember people when they donвЂ™t make reservations
