Ceremonies are important. But our gratitude has to be more than visits to the troops and once-a-year Memorial Day ceremonies. We honor the dead best by treating the living well.
I'm actually living my life with the material I choose to work with.
I suppose for me as an artist it wasn't always just about expressing my work I really wanted more than anything else to contribute in some way to the culture that I was living in. It just seemed like a challenge to move it a little bit towards the way I thought it might be interesting to go.
I am living proof that the American dream still exists. It is still alive and well. There is only one trick you have to be willing to roll up your sleeves and work very very hard.
In our work and in our living we must recognize that difference is a reason for celebration and growth rather than a reason for destruction.
Men for the sake of getting a living forget to live.
When did women whose looks are not their living start conducting themselves like the simpering inmates of an Ottoman empire seraglio?
Can I just say here how much I hate the word 'pamper'? While pretending to celebrate and indulge women it actually implies that their bodies are so revolting that even their 'me time' must be dedicated to turning them into living dolls if potential suitors are to be prevented from running screaming in horror.
When you see what some women marry you realize how they must hate to work for a living.
Capitalism has its weaknesses. But it is capitalism that ended the stranglehold of the hereditary aristocracies raised the standard of living for most of the world and enabled the emancipation of women.
When I wrote Living in the Light I wanted to share about how I live my own life and to encourage people to tap into their own inner wisdom.
The sublimity of wisdom is to do those things living which are to be desired when dying.
Tragedy is a tool for the living to gain wisdom not a guide by which to live.
You know the period of World War I and the Roaring Twenties were really just about the same as today. You worked and you made a living if you could and you tired to make the best of things. For an actor or a dancer it was no different then than today. It was a struggle.
Henry Kissinger is the greatest living war criminal in the world today with the blood of millions of people in Vietnam and Cambodia and Laos and Chile and East Timor on his hands. He will never appear in a court or be behind bars.
Television brought the brutality of war into the comfort of the living room. Vietnam was lost in the living rooms of America - not on the battlefields of Vietnam.
It is not only the living who are killed in war.
Dalton's records carefully preserved for a century were destroyed during the World War II bombing of Manchester. It is not only the living who are killed in war.
John Dalton's records carefully preserved for a century were destroyed during the World War II bombing of Manchester. It is not only the living who are killed in war.
Everything will line up perfectly when knowing and living the truth becomes more important than looking good.
Truth is the silliest thing under the sun. Try to get a living by the Truth and go to the Soup Societies. Heavens! Let any clergyman try to preach the Truth from its very stronghold the pulpit and they would ride him out of his church on his own pulpit bannister.
Without the way there is no going without the truth there is no knowing without the life there is no living.
In fact men will fight for a superstition quite as quickly as for a living truth - often more so since a superstition is so intangible you cannot get at it to refute it but truth is a point of view and so is changeable.
I just think that I'll never have plastic surgery if I'm not in front of the camera. If you make your living selling this thing which is the way you look then maybe you do it. But trust me the minute I'm directing or producing and not starring I would never even think of it.
