It is better to have loved and lost than never to have lost at all.
I never drank except a couple sips of wine at Thanksgiving.
Pride slays thanksgiving but a humble mind is the soil out of which thanks naturally grow. A proud man is seldom a grateful man for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.
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.
'The war in Iraq - if Osama was a Christian - it's the Christmas present he never would have expected.
It is never too late to get into tennis! While I started playing at the age of 8 when my parents gave me a tennis racquet for Christmas tennis is a lifelong sport that can be enjoyed by people of almost any age. It's also something you never forget once you learn.
I never really did Christmas before. Christmas Day? I mean - what's that? What's it all about? I was always flying on Christmas Day.
I'd like to do a Christmas album. I've never done a Christmas album.
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.
My favorite toy growing up was Polly Pocket. But one gift that I wanted though never received for Christmas was a pair of trampoline moon shoes. You strap them to your feet and they have springs on them and you can just jump around!
We never really had any kind of a Christmas. This is one part where my memory fails me completely.
Actually my mother and Alfie came for three weeks' Christmas vacation and stayed for 21 years. I guess my mother never went back because she was lonely.
What I'm not saying is that all government spending is bad. It's not - far far from it but there is no free lunch as a former colleague of mine used to say. There is no public tooth fairy. Father Christmas does not work on the Treasury staff this year. You can never bail someone out of trouble without putting someone else into trouble.
There's never really been a real hood Christmas movie.
According to an ancient Sardinian legend the bodies of those who are born on Christmas Eve will never dissolve into dust but are preserved until the end of time.
He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.
When you're a chef you graze. You never get a chance to sit down and eat. They don't actually sit down and eat before you cook. So when I finish work the first thing I'll do and especially when I'm in New York I'll go for a run. And I'll run 10 or 15k on my - and I run to gain my appetite.
Actresses can get outrageously precious about the way they look. That's not what life's about. If you starve yourself to the point where your brain cells shrivel you will never do good work. And if you're overly conscious of your arms flapping in the wind how can you look the other actor in the eye to respond to them?
The outward work will never be puny if the inward work is great.
My wife whenever I'd go off to work and I'd be kind of anxious she'll say 'Remember have fun.' Oh I forgot thanks for the reminder. Because sometimes we do forget. We take it all too seriously and there's a lot of joy to be had wherever you are.
If you do what you love you'll never work a day in your life.
You should never have to say hello or goodbye. Even at work sometimes and I know this is very unpopular is that if I'm going to work every single day I don't think you should have to hug people hello every single day when you come to work. I saw you Monday!
I never work just to work. It's some combination of laziness and self-respect.
I was a senior in high school when I decided I wanted to work on ants as a career. I just fell in love with them and have never regretted it.
At 35 I'm definitely starting to feel more like a grown-up than I ever have. There's nothing in my life that is childish or whimsical. Having fun is fantastic and I never want to lose a sense of that - and also I think you have to have that to put into your work or else it's going to feel stiff.
To make our way we must have firm resolve persistence tenacity. We must gear ourselves to work hard all the way. We can never let up.
Whatever you do do it with all your might. Work at it early and late in season and out of season not leaving a stone unturned and never deferring for a single hour that which can be done just as well now.
An audience is always warming but it must never be necessary to your work.
People don't understand that when I grew up I was never the most talented. I was never the biggest. I was never the fastest. I certainly was never the strongest. The only thing I had was my work ethic and that's been what has gotten me this far.
Never follow somebody else's path it doesn't work the same way twice for anyone... the path follows you and rolls up behind you as you walk forcing the next person to find their own way.
Every reader finds himself. The writer's work is merely a kind of optical instrument that makes it possible for the reader to discern what without this book he would perhaps never have seen in himself.
Never despair but if you do work on in despair.
I never expect to see a perfect work from an imperfect man.
