I have nothing against turkey. We eat turkey for Thanksgiving in my house.
If you think Independence Day is America's defining holiday think again. Thanksgiving deserves that title hands-down.
I'm well-travelled so I can see places coming up. I went to St. Croix in the West Indies at Christmas and it had been hit by a really bad tornado. Values there have gone down but I guarantee they will be up again in eight years. So I'll get in now while it's cheap as chips.
So when I was 13 I basically left home and never returned and lived at home again. I would come home for a week at Christmas and two weeks in the summer only.
I was talking to one of my aunties at Christmas and she said she didn't think it was ever in my nature to go against the grain that I was always a good boy. I think she was right - I did always want to be good.
I think we felt the pressure more at first than this time around. But still you don't want to let anyone down. I never even met Patrick until we had a Christmas party at Ian McKellen's house on the first movie and then I didn't see him again until the premiere.
The father figure is something I love but also suffocate from and want to work against.
And I'm going to work as hard as I can... for cancer research and hopefully maybe we'll have some cures and some breakthroughs. I'd like to think I'm going to fight my brains out to be back here again next year for the Arthur Ashe recipient. I want to give it next year!
There are moments when you feel that the desire to work is fading and the only way to bring it back is to get away from it to put yourself in a state of frustration so you feel the need again.
The worst sin that can be committed against the artist is to take him at his word to see in his work a fulfillment instead of an horizon.
Begin - to begin is half the work let half still remain again begin this and thou wilt have finished.
Only the most unapologetic biblical fundamentalists for instance take every biblical injunction literally. If we all took all scripture at the same level of authority then we would be more open to slavery to the subjugation of women to wider use of stoning. Jesus himself spoke out frequently against divorce in the strongest of terms.
Men and women should stay apart till their hearts grow gentle towards one another again.
Women's liberation is just a lot of foolishness. It's men who are discriminated against. They can't bear children. And no one is likely to do anything about that.
My mother was very strong. Once she picked up a coconut and smashed it against my father's head. It taught me about women defending themselves and not collapsing in a heap.
Elections are won by men and women chiefly because most people vote against somebody rather than for somebody.
We are victims of evil customs. It is a crime against humanity that our women are shut up within the four walls of the houses as prisoners. There is no sanction anywhere for the deplorable condition in which our women have to live.
If we can return to a government that the Founders in their wisdom envisioned for us we can return to a government that will allow our economy to thrive again and our people to live in liberty.
To build a great company which is a CEO's job sometimes you have to stand up against conventional wisdom.
I wear my wedding ring. We talk about when we're going to get married again which we hope is going to take place some time in this incredibly hectic calendar year.
I have a crusade against fondant also shortening. There's no reason why wedding cakes can't taste good if you know what you're doing.
On the publicity tour of 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding ' I was asked over and over again if as the writer I felt it was a fair depiction of real life to have someone of my er below average looks hook up with hottie John Corbett.
When widows exclaim loudly against second marriages I would always lay a wager than the man If not the wedding day is absolutely fixed on.
The first thing I did when I sold my book was buy a new wedding ring for my wife and asked her to marry me all over again.
I am still profoundly troubled by the war in Nicaragua. The United States launched a covert war against another nation in violation of international law a war that was wrong and immoral.
Music is a weapon in the war against unhappiness.
The Sandinista government became consumed with fighting a war of survival. They were up against the biggest superpower in the world.
I'm actually reading 'World War Z' again! It's incredibly realistic and it's written as an oral history through interviews with different characters. Max Brooks wrote this book in so many different voices. There are about forty or so. It's incredible. When I finish 'World War Z' I'm going to go back and start again on the 'Game of Thrones' series.
I'm against all war.
I consider Bush's decision to call for a war against terrorism a serious mistake. He is elevating these criminals to the status of war enemies and one cannot lead a war against a network if the term war is to retain any definite meaning.
I want to wage war against illiteracy poverty unemployment unfair competition communitarianism delinquency.
The fight this war this fight against the remnants of terrorism will go on for some time.
I think there should be holy war against yoga classes.
