To be as good as our fathers we must be better imitation is not discipleship.
I put the copy of 'A Christmas Carol' that my grandfather had first read to me 60 years ago on my desk and I began to write. The result for better or for worse is the 'Christmas Spirits.' I plan to read it to my grandson.
If you want me to sing this Christmas song with the feeling and the meaning you better see if you can locate that check.
The security comes as an actor in knowing that you're not in control. If you try to control your career or how people perceive you you'll make yourself unhappy because life doesn't work like that. So much is luck. It's much better to let yourself off to think 'There's nothing I can do.'
It sometimes makes people feel better about themselves you know to put other people down or make fun of them or maybe make mockery of their work and that doesn't make me feel good at all.

Hairdressers are a wonderful breed. You work one-on-one with another human being and the object is to make them feel so much better and to look at themselves with a twinkle in their eye.
Musicians can run this state better than politicians. We won't get a lot done in the mornings but we'll work late and be honest.
But I work harder now because I have so much more exposure. And actually the harder you work as a writer the better you get at it. It's like anything else. It's a muscle you have to exercise. I write more now than ever.
The better a work is the more it attracts criticism it is like the fleas who rush to jump on white linens.

I love Sweden. The entire world should be like Sweden. They all like to drink and get naked and the women are hot. I can't think of a better nation on the planet.
It would be a much better country if women did not vote. That is simply a fact. In fact in every presidential election since 1950 - except Goldwater in '64 - the Republican would have won if only the men had voted.

If this world is going to be a better place for our grandchildren and great-grandchildren it will be women who make it so.

As a parent and a citizen I'll take a Bill Gates (or Warren Buffett) over Steve Jobs every time. If we must have billionaires better they should ignore Jobs's example and instead embrace the morality and wisdom of the great industrialist-philanthropist Andrew Carnegie.
Sometimes one likes foolish people for their folly better than wise people for their wisdom.
