It's all about giving yourself a chance to win the opener, and then after that, you focus in on Week 2.
I love African American women, but I just don't like my skin complexion.
Some of us don't want to be a housewife. When you live alone, you can do anything you want to do anytime you want. I really like it.
I despise people who go to the gutter on either the right or the left and hurl rocks at those in the center.
I went to church with my grandparents sometimes and I loved it.
Give me Caviar Kaspia and give me a hamburger. I love the two extremes.
Enthusiasm is not the same as just being excited. One gets excited about going on a roller coaster. One becomes enthusiastic about creating and building a roller coaster.
My family was mostly unemployed working class.
Hyesan people have money, the most after those in Pyongyang, because it's near the border with China. Illegal smuggling businesses and Chinese trading companies operate there, so people can access outside products.
I rekindled a friendship I hadn't had in a long time, and I was reminded of all the parts of me that had left. I was like, 'Wow, I love to paint and to write and to be outside.'
No one who passively endures an injustice against himself has the material in him to struggle for the rights of others. The one who patiently forbears becomes an accessory to the injustice done to others. He who resists the injustice which he himself meets can open up the way to a higher right for others.
Love her with all your heart. Don't visit her village just to destroy it after. You're not a barbarian, are you? But go there and make it a city.
My contemporary art collection began with just needing to put things on the wall. I was looking around my Victorian house thinking, 'What would be the coolest is contemporary art - it will make me look young and interesting.' I'm more than 80 percent skeptical of the whole thing.
There has been so much underestimating of animal cognition that to perhaps overestimate it, as I probably do, is probably a healthy reaction.
I am a pet person. My dog actually lives in Georgia now. But I work with animal trainers and pets quite often. I also volunteer at different places like animal shelters. It's good to be around pets. They kind of put things into perspective. They're easygoing, loyal, and they seem to get it, even when humans don't.
Casey Affleck is a really good friend of mine. I know Casey a lot better than I know Ben, even though Ben and I have worked together a lot.
I travel a lot, so when I arrive in a city, I like to go to good local bookshops and make a selection based on how I'm feeling and what I'm thinking. The book I pick usually seems to have a definite karmic connection!
I met Gilda Radner, God bless her, when I was in grade 13, which doesn't exist anymore. The high school I went to went from 9 to 13.
I say there're no depressed words just depressed minds.
I like to take writing retreats within a day's drive of home. Less travel time means more time for writing, which is the name of the game here.
