, all your dogs
have barked when you rang the bell

talented and could do a very good job as secretary

music but I’m pretty quick at picking

If we think about emotion this way – as outside-in, not inside out – it is possible to understand how some people

than the rest of us.
Certainly not every good program
is object-oriented, and not every object-oriented program is good.
The United States
does not have a very good record in the Middle East

part of the world. In some cases US diplomacy
has been somewhat naive
Nobody tells young writers
it’s okay if you’re not very good, you’ll get better. So I just thought I’m not very good, so I should try to do every other thing besides
writing. That’s how I ended up being a hitchhiker, a world traveler
, and a mathematician
We, as women, often believe that we have to endear ourselves by acting modestly. But that leads personnel directors

When I was asked to make the film, I decided
that it was like taking
on a new career
at the age of sixty-eight. I’ve never acted before

Every good thing that has happened in your life happened because something changed
Nothing is more false and more indiscreet than always to want to choose what mortifies us in everything. By this rule a person would soon ruin
his health, his business, his reputation, his relations with his relatives and friends
, in fact every good work which Providence
If I have learned one thing in my 54 years, it is that it is very good for the character to engage
in sports which put your life in danger from time to time
. It breeds
a saneness in dealing with day to day
trivialities which probably cannot be got in any other way, and a habit of quick decisions
People will say you should quit running
if you’re a slow runner

you should stop reading.
In a society

people, getting them to fit
in. He wasn’t the guy that was going to sit there and motivate
you, intrinsically. That wasn’t what he was best at. So he hired
people that were good at that.
I did maths for a year at university
. I don’t think I was very good at it. And some people would say it shows.

that I made the right choice
when I decided to be an actor.
I think of myself as Mirren rather than Mironova, absolutely
. I am a Brit, really. I mean when I go to Russia and I do have, maybe it’s a romantic fantasy

As a fairly objective
judgment, I do think that my plays as they come out are better than most other things that are put on the same year. But that doesn’t make them very good necessarily.
Every good thing great and small needs defense
Ist es an und fu? r sich absurd
, das Nichtsein fu? r einUbel zu ? halten; da jedes Ubel wie jedes Gut das Dasein zur Voraussetzung hat, ja sogar das Bewusstsein. It is in and by itself absurd to regard non-existence as an evil; for every evil, like every good, presupposes existence, indeed even consciousness

I am very good at what I do. I am better at it than anybody else

I use to perform.
I’m a very good thinker, but I sometimes grab
the wrong word
. I say something I didn’t think through adequately. I mean, I don’t type my speeches

, you know. I wing it.
I just saw Memento
. It’s very, very good. I watch a lot of French
I think people want to stay home and run movies with their whole family
at home. It become a family hobby instead
of going out
to the theater, sad
to say. But I think it’s very good because it reaches millions
that would never see these movies.
One of the problems I have with many writers is their stories are all somewhat similar. They might be very good, but they’re always on the same turf

I guess my guitar parts are usually precise, but the execution of those parts is downright treacherous
, since I’m not very good on guitar.
I’m in a very good place now because I do theater, I do TV
and I make movies. I was a dancer, so I dance
a little bit. I was a musician, so I do a little bit of music. And I do all of this in four or five different languages
, and all over the world.
I’m not very good at playing piano
, so I usually hit chords
with my right hand. And those chords came, and I was just singing a little bit.
And in nineteen seventy
two I almost wasn’t, on the team, but I knew about it just before Olympic
Games for three months before this why this is was not very good for me. I’d been ready
to go, you know.
Our conflict is not likely
so soon as every good man would wish. The measure of iniquity
is not yet filled
; and unless we can return a little more to first principles
, and act a little more upon patriotic
ground, I do not know when it will.

That is a very good question. I don’t know the answer. But can you tell me the name of a classical Greek
There wasn’t very much time between wrapping Revolutionary
Road and starting
The Reader. It was about five and a half months, which, for me, isn’t that long. Some actors are very good at just going from one thing to another but I’ve always been a bit useless
at that. The preparation
time is important for me.
I did not read the Bible
today. I am not very good at being religious and don’t really feel too bad about not being too good. I do wish that I loved
God and His creatures
I’m leaving the screen
because I don’t think I am very good in the pictures and I have this beautiful dream that I’m elegant
on the stage.
Griffin Dunne and I were both terrified
that Martin Scorsese
didn’t think we were very good – and if he didn’t think we were very good, that was it. That was the end of the line. If Martin Scorsese thinks you stink
, you stink.
You’re not very nice
,” I say, grinning
. “You’re one to talk.” “Hey, I could be nice
if I tried.” “Hmm

in this dark

I think I’m very good at adjusting
to anything and to any situation, and if you are good at being in the moment and adjusting, you can actually have a clear
vision of what to do with things or how to do things.
For every good reason there is to lie
, there is a better reason to tell the truth.
Accents. I’m very good with accents
. I’m exceedingly good.
So they left the subject
and played croquet
, which is a very good game for people who are annoyed
with one another, giving many opportunities for venting rancor
I was a writer. I just wasn’t a very good one. I was lucky enough to have a playwriting
teacher who told me that I’d be a better actor than I would a playwright
not being me
. I’m not very good at being me. That’s why I adore acting so much.
Very good. It was perfect.
I play Hopkins

Page is an excellent producer
. Led Zeppelin
I and II are classics
. As a player he’s very good in the studio
, but I’ve never seen him play well live. He’s sloppy
. He plays like he’s got a broken
hand and he’s two years old. If you put out a good album and play like a two year old, what’s the purpose?
People use ideas of non-duality as an escape
from reality. It is very easy to say there is no winning and losing
the fact that you didn’t do a very good job.
In the States, I think, the syllogism goes like this: ‘free markets solve
all problems. Free markets aren’t solving
global warming, QED global warming is not a problem’. It’s not a very good syllogism but it’s emotionally comforting
if you’re in that world.
We just finished shaking

Learn to say, вЂњI donвЂ™t know the answer.вЂќ It could be the beginning of a very good day
education is a very good decision
, not only good for the student, but also for our country. The United States was the first nation in history to recognize
that public education
for every citizen, regardless of class or station

to its future . . .
Behind every attractive

It is very good advice to believe only what an artist does, rather than what he says about his work.
Beach? It makes me feel very good … If it’s changing

To keep your actions and your plans
secret always has been a very good thing . .. Marcus Crassus said to one who asked him when he was going to move the army
: ‘Do you believe that you will be the only one not to hear the trumpet
Acting is a different discipline. On stage I’m free to say what I please. But the change is very good for ya.
Better to live a day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep
I’ve always liked to think I could do anything I wished
as well as – if not better than – a man. But I wasn’t very good at rally driving.
The safest genre is
the horror film
. But the most unsafe
– the most dangerous – is comedy. Because even if your horror film isn’t very good, you’ll get a few screams and you’re okay. With a comedy, if they don’t laugh, you’re dead.
I’ve started late, I was 19 years old. I’ve trained with Victor
Zilberman – he’s a Russian-Jewish

me represented Canada
in the Olympic games. There were a lot of very good wrestlers
there and they took me underneath
their wing when I was young.
Guys like John McEnroe, Bjorn Borg
and Stefan Edberg were also very good grass court
It’s how creativity
works. Especially in humans. For every good idea, ten thousand
idiotic ones must first be posed, sifted, tried out, and discarded
. A mind that’s afraid to toy
with the ridiculous will never come up with the brilliantly original.
For many years, I have kept in my office an ink drawing of two smiling
figures with their arms
around each other: Jesus Christ
and Gautama Buddha
, with the caption
: “Jesus and Buddha must be very good friends.” They are not the same, but they are friends, not enemies
, and they are not indifferent
to one another.
People know that I am a very good author. But they would rather read what I have to say about the next election
Love is the soul of every life of prayer and of every good work.
Sin is not just breaking
, it is putting yourself in the place of God as Savior
, Lord, and JudgeвЂ¦ There are two ways
to be your own Savior and Lord. One is by breaking all the moral laws and setting your own course, and one is by keeping all the moral laws and being very, very good.
If the critics
are right that I’ve made all my decisions based

It’s a very good idea that we have a third term Labour government led by Tony Blair

Every act of charity
, every thought of sympathy
, every action of help, every good deed, is taking so much of self-importance
away from our little selves and making us think of ourselves as the lowest
and the least, and, therefore, it is all good. Here we find that JnГўna, Bhakti
, and Karma – all come to one point.
1960, I was 20 years old, and I was leading
the U.S. Open. Now, I wasn’t leading by several strokes
, but I was leading the U.S. Open and playing with Ben Hogan, had a very good chance to win, nine holes
to go, I was leading. I was still leading with six holes to play.
God is the Creator
God, he doesn’t want to say, “Okay, creation was very good, but I’m scrapping it.” He wants

be on the other side of the door

God’s plan is not to abandon this world
, the world which he said was “very good.” Rather, he intends to remake it. And when he does he will raise

We have a very good head thing but we don’t make love.
I wasn’t taking so many drugs that it was messing up
my creative processes

I’ve always been a bit of a mix between art and technology
. I used to paint a lot, but I’m not very good with my hands. It has always been a fusion
between my computer gaming
interests and being exposed to the rich data of society that we live in.
I’m not a very good writer. I’m working at it.
We have, thank
God, a very good relationship with the German government. There were resentments, but they’ve been resolved

player and Angela
Merkel is the strongest government leader in the EU.
In my 10 years that I spent out in TV and film, I had my shares
and annoyances and disappointments

A kiss on the hand may feel very, very good, but a diamond and sapphire bracelet lasts
When you win a race

I think I would have a very, very good relationship with Vladimir Putin, and I think I would have a very, very good relationship with Russia.
There are very good Christians who are compassionate
and caring. And there are very bad Christians. You can say that about Islam
, about Hinduism
, about any faith. That is why I was saying that it was not the faith per se but the adherent. People will use their religion to justify virtually
When I wrestled in College, my team was very good.
I always have a very good relationship with galleries
, a lot of galleries and artists
, so I don’t want any conflict situations.
For the last 30 years our cinemas have been ruled
by science fiction
and horror. We’ve had some very good Fantasy films in that time period
, but for my tastes
I still haven’t seen fantasy done to absolute perfection. That is the hope I have in this project
You don’t want to be hard to look at. Plain very good, hard to look at bad. The plain shall inherit

I will say that is a quality I love about great directors, which is the ability to give you one word
that can inspire
you. I appreciate
a director with a very good vocabulary
. There are so many directors that I have worked with that can give you one word.
Would it not be better to have it understood that realism
, in so far as the word means reality to life, is always bad art — although it may possibly
be very good journalism
Most of the poems
I write go through forty versions
and then stay in a file
on my computer. I’m not very good at sending
stuff out or feeling that something is ready to send out and I never have been. Part of the problem is that as soon as a poem is finished, it stops being all that interesting to me.
Art and society was a lot more subject to sexism
50 years ago than it is now. Since that period, there have been plenty
of very good female painters
, 2006 Turner Prize
-winner Tomma Abts among them. How much history needs to pass before an artist is called ‘great’? That is the real question.
The only reason I would have liked to have gone to university is because I like cricket. Not a very good reason to want to go, but as good as any, I suppose.
In terms of the public positioning
of the company, Satya
‘s [Nadella] done a very good job. He sort of pivoted in a way that I don’t think would have been possible for me to do even if I’d seen it that way, to really talk about this mobile-first, cloud-first world.
I think we filmed a lot of the recording and it would be nice to do something with it but you know, videos
because we know how to make albums but I’m not very good at video editing
My mother married a very good man … and she is not at all keen
on my doing the same.
It felt like the first thing
, but when I first started out, I got a job adapting
a book by Russell Banks
called ‘Rule Of The Bone.’ I didn’t do a very good job. I didn’t really know what I was doing in general, let alone how to adapt
–and stoats–and foxes–and so on. They’re all right in a way–I’m very good friends with them–pass the time of day
when we meet, and all that–but they break out
sometimes, there’s no denying
it, and then–well, you can’t really trust them, and that’s the fact.
A bad boy
can be very good for a girl.
In the United States, there’s definitely some controversy
about birth control
in general, and I think we needed to split
and have people realize
that we actually agree as a country about contraceptives
. Over 93 percent of American women say they use contraceptives, and they feel very good about it.
What would you do if you knew that every good thing in your life depended

Every good mathematician is at least half a philosopher, and every good philosopher is at least half a mathematician.

Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I’ve been very good to broadway
I’m not very good at creating
worlds. I prefer
to write about the world as it is.
This soldiering thing sadly
deadens that very good thing, humanity
Look, again, I’m competing against professional politicians
, top of the line. I know Ben Carson
is still in, and he’s a terrific
guy and a talented guy. And so I’m competing against a lot of very good people.
As president, I could run the Trump organization
, great, great company
, and I could run the company – the country. I’d do a very good job, but I don’t want to do that.
In fact, we tend to think things have been getting much worse
. In fact, over the last 50 years, almost everything
in the world on a global scale
has got better. And the way that Hans [ Rosling] did this – it was very good.
I haven’t actually seen a Lady Gaga
tour, but I do think she’s very good.
I really think that I don’t mind people sleeping during my films, because I know that some very good films

or snoozing. It’s not to be taken badly
I know there are people who don’t like their audience or like the experience of being recognized or celebrated
, but my audience has been very good – they don’t bother
me and when they do contact
me it’s usually on the nicest
I wanted the influence. In the end I wasn’t very good at being a president. I looked out of the window
and thought that the man cutting

I’m a horror movie fan
to begin with, so to come back to the genre, I feel like horror has been very good to me.

People in America and Hollywood are very good at pronouncing my name, to begin with. Socially
, they’re very adept
at listening to somebody’s name and repeating
it, cleverly in the first couple of sentences
so the name sticks
to begin with.
I saw a study the other day showing that some atypical anti-psychotic was at least as good as mood stabilizers in preventing suicide
. It’s a very good thing to decrease
suicide but we should care at least a little if I’m not killing myself
because I feel better or if I just can’t remember where I put the damn
I think in terms of educating a group of readers
, MFA programs
are very good. I just think the model of MFA programs in which a young poet
goes through the program, publishes a series
of books, gets teaching jobs, that’s a bit at risk.
I use Windows
; ’98 second edition
and it works very good for me. You know, I just started on the computer about 9 months ago and am fascinated with the possibilities
. I don’t know what I would do without it now.
It doesn’t matter if the truth is
right there out in front of your eyes. You will find a way, a mechanism, in order to keep your own system

in the – in Egypt
. So we became very good in that.
There is very good evidence indeed that one of the major reasons for this horror in Syria
was a drought
that lasted for about five or six years, which meant that huge
numbers of people in the end
had to leave the land.
Behind every good decathlete, there’s a good doctor.
The future belongs
to the competent

to the well meaning.
I think when I’m in love, I really am very good with calling
, little faxes, and visiting and I really put a lot of effort into it. I’m really not the one that’s not available
because of work and I’m very sad
when I actually leave.
I’ve never had an affair
with somebody who wasn’t at the same time a very good friend of mine, if you see what I mean.
I think all great actors – and I don’t classify
myself as one of them, incidentally – but I think all great actors listen well and I’ve learned that from a lot of the very good actors
I’ve worked – to really listen to what people say.
Every good that you do, every good that you say, every good thought you think, vibrates on and on and never ceases
. The evil remains only until it is overcome by good, but the good remains forever.
I have great respect
for Bernie Sanders, there was a moment where he opposed
Deal… I was frustrated with him, but he and I have a very good relationship… and I have great affection
for him, but I do think when he criticized
the Paris agreement, I didn’t think it was the right position.
But then acting is all about faking. We’re all very good at faking things that we have no competence
As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters
. I wish you
all very good lives.
I am very good at finding snow
when there’s very little snow. From a day in, day out perspective
, I’m fine. I see resorts
that are closed because they no longer have snow. It’s not my home resort
. There are signs
all over the place. I’m very passionate about climate
change, which is why I created Protect Our Winters
For ages, in my lunch
hours, I would just go round and choreograph fight scenes. For fun. So now I’m very good at being thrown

That was my way, and I also use the music after five years

Architecture is a language. When you are very good, you can be a poet
My mother really didn’t know a heck of a lot about business. She was a very good mother, that made sure we ate right and we had our cod liver

I love my hunting dog
. I loved my hunting dog – I’m not very good at hunting.
From early on there were two things that filled my life – music and storytelling
, both of them provoked
by my father. He was a jazz
pianist and also a very good storyteller

reader. He passed both those interests on to me.
If I get a script that’s set in the jungle
it goes to the bottom of the pile

What I didn’t know at the time [of my scholarship

on the conditions

And the truth is I’ve always taken very good care of my skin

It turns out we’re very good at not seeing things
Everybody that I’ve ever seen that enjoyed

Money is power. Every good man and woman ought to strive

My father and I have a very good relationship. We always got along. But I always scold
Eyes are the greatest tool in film. Mr. Capra taught me that. Sure it’s nice to say very good dialogue

down, moving with the feet… I became what`s known as a total dancer, using the entire body in order to express what you want

‘s social media
is becoming more
and more influential
; I think this is a very good thing. In China, social media
gives people an outlet
about themselves, to find out information from other people. Everyone is very focused on social media and this will be the same in the future.
I don’t know why femininity
should be associated
. Women should be free to express who they are without thinking, ‘I need to act like a man, or I need to tone it down to be successful.’ That’s a very good way
to keep women down.

Film is an editor’s medium. You can create very good raw material
and they can make it horrible

not so well and they can make it beautiful. You don’t really know.
I don’t remember if I’ve been asked seriously
to direct a picture. I understand that. I’m very good business
for people as an actor and perhaps
they’d rather I didn’t.
And if you look at the experience of Turkey
, for example
, where the modern Islamists
are in power and are doing fine – this is very good. Because democracy
is not possible in the Muslim
world without bringing in the Islamists or part of the Islamists who hate us now into these governments.
I’ve always been a very good heel
To think of the part one little woman can play in the life of a man, so that to renounce
her may be a very good imitation of heroism

The reality is sometimes markets don’t exist for very good reasons. It might be that there isn’t a deep customer
need. Or the economic model is just hard to pull off. Or maybe there is a regulatory barrier
I want to be a very good friend to Indonesia
, but there are some things which are non-negotiable. Border protection is just non-negotiable. Maintaining a strong security network
is just non-negotiable. I think the Indonesians understand that.
The attempt to live that way, the attempt to treat everybody – it fails
all the time – but the attempt to treat people as equals
is a good attempt. It’s a very good attempt. And there have been very few governments that have come anywhere near it in the past
. The Greeks
began to, the Romans
began to – they both failed
I think most newspapermen by definition have to be liberal
; if they’re not liberal, by definition of it, then they can hardly be good newspapermen. If they’re preordained dogmatists for a cause, then they can’t be very good journalists
Without the incarnation
isnвЂ™t even a very good story, and most sadly, it means nothing. “Be nice to one another” is not a message
that can give my life meaning, assure
me of love beyond brokenness
, and break open the dark doors of death with the key of hope.
I like Italy
. I was always at home there, it’s a marvelous
place to become invisible

you and nobody is interested in you and I find that very good for work.
It’s very good to know when you’re being lapped on the racetrack
, ’cause you’ve got to put your foot
down on the pedal
and get going.
In terms of Iran
and in terms of Saudi Arabia

I try not to read best-dressed lists or anything like that. For every good thing, there will often be a not-so-nice thing people would say.
I went home and took my wife and went to my Cosen Tho. Pepys’s and found them just sat down to dinner, which was very good; only the venison
pasty was palpable beef
, which was not handsome
I kept a diary
as a teenager
but I never would have shared it with anyone. Still, I think it’s very good practice to write things down.
I have a good friend who’s a very good printer
. And he does a certain amount of printing
for me. I do all the developing. If somebody’s going to goof
my film, I’d better do it. I don’t want to get that mad
at anybody else.
I was lucky enough to get a very good agent at the age of 15, and got my first film when I was 16, so it’s been rolling
on since then.
All I can do is present what I think is in the best interest of this country and how I can best serve this country and the president of the United States. And I feel very good about that opportunity I’ve had.

The secret of Big Macs

It as if you took a lot of very good food
and some dog excrement and blended
it all up so that you can’t possibly figure out what’s good or bad. It’s an intimate
mixture of rubbish and good ideas
, and it’s very hard to disentangle the two, because these are smart people
; they’re not stupid
Poetry and music are very good friends. Like mommies and daddies and strawberries
– they go together.
I like filming
in New York a lot myself, but London
is accommodating to me; the weather

You’re not going to tell me that you’re going to find a person who’s not a very good athlete

is going to be a great player. But anyone can play the game. That’s the nice thing about the game. You don’t really have to be a world-class
athlete to play the sport

aren’t being used

for my childhood, because it was full of gladness
and good humanity.

that people aren’t beyond it yet.

without losing business to a competitor

Should there be cameras everywhere in outdoor
streets? My personal view
is having cameras in inner cities
is a very good thing. In the case of London, petty crime

This is a donut. It is very sweet
, and very good. But if you’ve never tasted
a donut, you wouldn’t really know how sweet and how good a donut is… meditation is like that. Transcendental

” is actually a very good text
for yoga – the yoga of love, the yoga of action or karma

I want to become a very good writer.
People, and especially theologians
, should try to familiarize themselves with scientific ideas. Of course, science is technical
in many respects

with a bunch of guys who are a hell of a lot better.

food, especially if you’re used to spicy food
A lot of people describe me
as an electronic producer, but I actually wouldn’t have described myself that way until maybe three months ago when I felt I was getting some really good production
jobs with very good people. I would have always said, I’m a singer. I think the album brings the voice to the front, and makes that clear.
My dad played for a coal-mining team in eastern Ohio
; he was a very good pitcher

God gave me a very good hand to play over my 88 years. I have no regrets

. But then we want always to be able to enrich
the stories, or maybe change the stories with a fresh infusion

from it and make flatter.

drive to places

for me after 11 books to start writing this way.
The only thing I wouldn’t like to do is to play roles
as a musician. I’m not sure that I would be comfortable doing that, and I’m not sure I’d be very good at it. I think I would be better served, and would be a better partner, if I was in something outside of myself.

our own mess.
We begin every act of choice and avoidance
from pleasure, and it is to pleasure that we return using our experience of pleasure as the criterion of every good thing.

, objets, textiles
. I don’t have the talent for painting, but I have a very good sense of colour, a love of visual beauty

window onto the East River; I wouldn’t be able to afford
to have my mother with me this summer
. So television has been very good to me.

, but the two that I can’t do for some reason are the South African and Australian.
True, but if itвЂ™s good itвЂ™s going be so very, very good.

Alric looked up at the thief
with a scowl. вЂњI just want to say for the record that as far as royal
protectors go, youвЂ™re not very good.вЂќ вЂњItвЂ™s my first day,вЂќ Royce replied dryly. вЂњAnd already IвЂ™m trapped
in a timeless
prison. I shudder
to think what might have happened if you had a whole week

I know a lot of people who are very good at their craft who have learned – people behind the camera – who really have a lot to offer
because they know what they’re doing, they know what to do, they’ve made their mistakes.
The only difficulty
is that I’m playing to two audiences
, and it’s too bad the noise
detracts from the show, because it’s a great show
. I’ve seen my own self out there, and it’s a very good musical show. Sometimes the show gets lost in the hysteria
and sometimes it doesn’t.
I got a very good life. I sold plenty of records, I get recognized plenty, I can always have somebody call up and get me a fine table at a restaurant

I love to relax. It’s my favorite
thing in the world. I am very good at being like a grandma
and staying in and watching Game of Thrones
or a movie. I think I could do that every night.
It’s quite stressful

Rodriguez to idolize me coming up, that makes me feel very good.

I think a lot of that album [“Tonight
” ] is still very good . . . the songs, but I think I was indifferent to the arrangements

– they know very little except
how to grow (though they’re very good at that), and they howl
when you set limits
them is the work of politics. It’s about time we took it up again.
I try to make myself, and subsequently the audience, as uncomfortable
as possible, whether it’s completely desecrating a song they thought was one thing, or getting too drunk
to really do a very good job.
Very good cooks
who are employed as ‘chefs
‘ rarely refer
to themselves as ‘chefs.’ They refer to themselves as ‘cooks.’
I will say it’s great to be a woman because we’re very good at multitasking

to working on the weekends

Hubert Sumlin, as well, because Hubert’s a great man
, and again, you know, I don’t play the guitar very good, but when I’m playing this kind of music, I always have him in my mind. I wish I could play like Hubert.
Local television is a slightly different story
. It is under much more pressure in the same way that all local
businesses are, whether that’s a local newspaper
, local radio or local television. But I think television in the aggregate
is actually in very good shape.
I loved movies. They inspired
me more than anything
growing up and wanted to do for others what those movies have done for me. I do a lot of other creative stuff but am not very good at it.

The professional guts
a book through – in full knowledge that what he is doing is not very good. Not to work is to exhibit
a failure of nerve.
My whole view of music completely flipped
over on its head. I grew up
listening to punk rock
, SST. I liked people that were making music that weren’t necessarily very good at their instruments
, it was more about the ideas they had than how well they could play and sing.
I’ve never thought of myself as being particularly brave
– I used to be frightened
of the dark when I was small. And I’m not very good with dead rats
and things like that. But I face what has to be faced
and I hope as best as I’m able.

in status. What’s important is that pie grows.
There are a lot of good memories

, neither am I. (Kyrian) I really hate your sense of humor
My path was to be an actor and itвЂ™s been very good to me in life. ItвЂ™s broadened my horizons

I write music, and I want people to listen to it and care about it and have it make some difference in their lives. When I’m fortunate for that to happen, then of course I feel very, very good about it.
It is not my experience that we are here to fix the world, that we are here to change anything at all. I think we are here so the world can change us. And if part of that change is that the suffering of the world moves us compassion, to awareness
, to sympathy, to love
, that is a very good thing.
Not being well-versed in that arena
myself, it’s a little bit frightening
because I’m not very good in those situations with lots of people and lots of famous people
and cameras and all of that. It’s not my specialty.

and tennis is going to be something I’m probably not very good at.

that make films robustly travel across class, age, gender
