Anything can be changed. Anything can be fixed. Things that are broken can be fixed. And you don't have to be some billionaire or millionaire to do it. You just have to be a person with a vision and the passion to do it, and be willing to fight for it every day.
This creating? It's my passion.
Somewhere along the way I realized that I enjoyed making useless things a lot more than well-finished products.
From every little territory I've been, I've picked something up, things that I could use to better my game, to take with me, and the rest I left behind.
There was, when I came to New York in the 1970s, no more profound or moving experience than MoMA, an almost perfect piece of 20th Century modernist expression, existing in an extraordinary balance - modestly, functionally, elegantly - with the extraordinary art it held. This place changed my life. I was transformed by every visit.
For a while I feel like I can play against anyone in the world.
All I ever wanted to do was play cricket for England and be successful.
I think the best thing you can do with a 'Superman' game is to kind of explore the psychology of what it would be like to be a person who slowly begins to realize that he can't save everybody.
All of us... anyone that's been in Fleetwood Mac, as far as I've been aware, has been seemingly pretty well brought up by their parents: not goody two-shoes - God knows we weren't - but there was a level of civility that the lads in the band were aware of, what is over the brink of decency.
I am trained as a film-maker. There is nothing else I can do.
Roe v. Wade used raw judicial power to overturn the democratically passed laws in every state in the country and remove state restrictions on abortion.
I play a bit of golf, off a 12 handicap.
Part of my job is to be looked at and I do think we live in a world where you are judged on your looks. If you look at someone you previously liked and they look old and decrepit, I don't think it's that pleasant.
I played many matches and got experience very early. Did I lose some of my childhood? This is one of the things that I am more sensitive about and that touched me the most, because I am a family person. There are many moments that I haven't had the chance to enjoy with my family and also with my friends.
Hello, my name is Samin, and I'm an artisanal-bread hoarder.
When you find that person that's your person, you see all the good bits and the bad bits and love them completely anyway.
Of course, no one doubts McCain's personal tenacity, from braving torture to overcoming cancer. Yet plenty of nonpartisan observers doubt his credibility.
I was a science guy in school, numbers and science and formula: what made things work and how to bring them forward - not what happened.
I need a manager who will tell me to go out and play my own game and enjoy myself.
The great thing about writing jokes for President Obama is that he is not afraid to tell jokes that are actually funny - and not just funny for a politician.
I have never considered doing action films.
You always gonna feel me. That's my main thing. When I'm speaking in my music, you gotta feel me.
You learn about people when they do go through a little bit of adversity.
I do need to focus on playing my football and what's happening on the pitch rather than off it... I want to be myself and not think about it.
Apart from me, Tyson Fury, and Deontay Wilder, you can't sell out Wembley.
Our phones have created what I like to call SADD - Social Attention Deficit Disorder.
People should be good, established people; the filmmaking and acting experience should be heartening. So I chose films where I would get a good experience, not just great roles.
Diamonds are created through the pressures of earth and then have to go through a million dirty roads to get to the cutter who turns it into a beautiful massage. And that's like human beings. They go through a lot to be who they are in front of you.
To record an album is cathartic, or at least it was with 'Belus,' but to make music is more fulfilling than anything else, I think.
When we don't win, we have to draw conclusions and assess our mistakes. Things can always be improved.
I like eating. I like food.
Whenever you're on a reality show, you're the scum of the earth. You have no talent, you're a nothing, and you deserve nothing.
I became a professional boxer because I want the attention and interest to come back to boxing. I want people interested in boxing. That's very important to me.
I don't have any answers as to whether the Internet is a good or a bad thing, but it's certainly an important thing for the novel because novels are so much about communication, and when communication changes, the novel has to change.
Making sure that we interact with the fanbase in a way that feels right to us has been really important.
People that are not happy in their offline life tend to turn to trolling to fill the void. Oftentimes, the people saying racist things do not even necessarily believe in what they are saying. They are just looking for attention they do not get in real life. When you keep that in mind, it is easier to avoid indulging those people all together.
The tenets of Jeet Kune Do are simplicity, directness, and freedom, and it's meant to be a style that is efficient and non-telegraphic; you can't see it coming.
I would have only doubted myself if I was really attached to the result of what I was doing, but I was always doing it and will always do it for the love of making songs, and if you liked it you liked it, if you didn't, you didn't. It was always pure and always will be pure.
Age is not a problem. It becomes a problem when people try and make us think old.
Creativity is a game changer. That's true of society, in advertising and in life.
We need to make sure we're creating spaces to create new leaders and new types of leadership.
I have been involved with U.S. Soccer for 30 years, and I don't remember one senior woman in the organization that you would deal with on a daily basis in a position that was making decisions. That is a huge issue. How many times do you hear, 'There are no women around?' Well, they are fishing in the wrong pond.
Sometimes less is more when it comes to workout routines.
Unions continue to be important for raising the standard of living for working Americans, whether or not they happen to be in a union.
Peter O'Toole - I really loved that man. They sent me into the desert, and I lived there with him for 100 days. And there were no women! Can you believe it?
I travel very light. I never want to check a bag. My only standards are a few sets of clothes, my white sneakers, my blue backpack, and my laptop. I don't have any special things otherwise.
In the end, individual titles are achieved with the help of all your team-mates.
I want to write more and direct more, but only so I can keep practising my craft and be involved in the projects that really interest me.
'The Mindy Project' is really best when you're loose, and we improvise a lot, and that's what's best.
So many people in my business go through W.W.C.D? What Would Costas Do? There are many things that I do on the air that make me think, 'That's not filled with much gravitas right there.' That's part of my style.
Jane Fonda was at the top of my list of women to meet and the only time I felt nervous about interviewing someone. She is one of the most dynamic women I have ever had the honor of talking to.
I was always going to direct. I wasn't going to hand my characters over to anyone else.
My encouragement: delete the energy vampires from your life, clean out all complexity, build a team around you that frees you to fly, remove anything toxic, and cherish simplicity. Because that's where genius lives.
I have been personally victimized by organized disruption of a public lecture on a university campus - at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Michigan State University, and Rhode Island's Providence College, to name only a few.
As a company, whatever the business outlook is, you want to make sure you have new skill sets coming into the company.
Every time I do a film, I have to make sure that when someone looks at me, they can't recognise Disha. It has to be a character. I want to do strong roles.
Why would you watch an Oscar-nominated film unless you're mad enough to purposely experience feelings? Bleh. I'm not interested in catching those.
Will I support our president, whoever that might be? Absolutely. Did I vote for Donald Trump? Absolutely.

If any country deserves American support, Ukraine does.
I believe that all people aspire to be free.
Noise does not disturb me, as I think that it gives a quaint atmosphere to a picture that fully matches my vision of nature and the wild species I like to photograph.
I find inspiration for my works of art in my studio and in the squared circle from all sorts of places.
I think every woman should have the skills and confidence to be able to earn a living. A working woman is happy because she has goals beyond herself and her needs.
I think I'm sort of method in a sense, and I enjoy, you know, trying to find that reality in fake emotion.
We have contributed through Indian culture; so many international collections are Indian-inspired. Why we don't make an international impact? We have talent, but we have not leveraged it, not married commerce to design.
There are things about my mum that I only realised later, things that make me admire her.
Writing well about sports is as difficult as writing well about sex.
Going to Hartford turned out to be the luckiest thing that ever happened to me.
I'm very troubled when editors oblige their film critics to read the novel before they see the film. Reading the book right before you see the film will almost certainly ruin the film for you.
As an older generation, we need to give all our young people love and the possibility of realizing their dreams. For instance, if I get really political, the fact that some people can't go to college, can't even think about college, that's not American; that's not right.
You have setbacks in your life, and adversity. You can be discouraged about it or have courage to get through it and be better.
I just really want to make - to be cliche about it, I want to make pretty music. Like Roy Orbison or Elvis, man. Those guys made beautiful, tender music.
The Egyptian was the reverse of a theorist or mere thinker. He wanted to perceive with his senses how the soul took its way from the dead body into higher realms - he wanted to have this constructed before him.
In expressing so completely his own type, Mr. Yeats presents us with the case for integrity. If we can express eventually our own scholastic mentality in verse, I believe that our art will lead us not towards, but away from, English art.
Around 2000, I was working on cartoons like 'PB&J Otter' and 'Doug.'
The fundamental interest - long-range strategic interest - of the state of Israel is that we will have the international bodies and primarily the United Nations recognize the two-state solution, so that there will never be any doubt as to the right of Israel to have its own Jewish independent state.
I started my own Pies Descalzos/Barefoot Foundation when I was 18. We provide education to vulnerable children in Colombia and other developing countries. I am an avid believer that education - and especially early childhood development - is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty.
We have the finest military personnel in the world.
I am a governor who left office with a smaller general fund budget than when we started.
And as we work together, we will build a better America! As we work together, we will bring the middle class to thrive again! As we work together, we will make sure that everybody has the ladder of opportunity to climb!
Computer vision and machine learning have really started to take off, but for most people, the whole idea of what is a computer seeing when it's looking at an image is relatively obscure.
A written constitution guides and directs the application of law in a way utterly unlike oral guidance. It reminds us that the certainty and consistency of legal application is essential.
After about 1940, scientists generally stopped looking for elements in nature. Instead, they had to create them by smashing smaller atoms together.
Winemakers have to adapt to what they're given by nature: the vines, the fruit, the soil and the weather.
One week before my 17th birthday, I had a blind date with June Rose, a television actress on network soap operas, a model, and a regular on the popular Dick Clark's Saturday night 'American Bandstand' show from New York. We were married five years later, one week after my graduation from Columbia.
I always figure, you come to a party, you gotta know somebody. And somebody leads to another person and leads to somebody else, somebody else. That's one of things that I really enjoy doing.
The greatest gift I've been given is being naive, because I don't know what I can't do. And when you don't know what you can't do, you think you can do everything.
I cannot read a single word of the Hindoos without being elevated.
The Blunt Amendment would have allowed any employer who provided health insurance, or any insurance company, the right to deny coverage for contraception or any other kind of procedure if the employer had a 'moral' objection to it.
Teenagers are some of the most passionate, dynamic and creative people I know. Yet, too often, this creative spark is left to flicker precariously and sometimes fade entirely.
I write every day, including weekends. For writers, there are no weekends. It's just that your family is around, looking mournful, wondering when you're going to pay attention to them.
I've had meetings where there were literally, like, 12 angry men in a room and me. And even when everyone shot me down, I somehow dug in one more time.
I strive to use references that may still make some kind of sense once our age has passed into history. That robs my writing of a certain connectedness to my time, but potentially might allow it to make sense to people who are not in this time.
In the heart of the desert and founded by the first Spanish Conquistadores, Las Vegas has become the entertainment capital of the world, with more than 30 million visitors a year.
I just don't want to give out interviews. I just hate them. Inevitably, I ended up hurting some people or leaving some names out or getting quoted out of context.
I understand fully that jobs are created by the private sector, having been all my life in the private sector, but I don't buy the argument that the state has no role to play.
I think Phil Dick was particularly interesting in that, first of all, he was a very modern man and a very modern thinker, but I don't know what demons drove him.
I strongly encourage listening to the radio to hear something you haven't heard before. It's a very healthy thing to do. It's strange: unless you reload your iPods every couple of weeks, you're listening to and recycling the same music all of the time. I'm serious. Listen to your radio station.
I'm not one of those critics that believes U.S. foreign policy is confused, or stupid, or misinformed, or well-intentioned but it goes awry. I think it's a brilliant policy filled with many brilliant, terrible, horrible victories.
Private sector labors unions continue to suffer losses in their membership while public sector and service unions grow.
