What motivated me? My mother. My mother was an immigrant woman, a peasant woman, struggled all her life, worked in the garment center.~Al Lewis


Mother Mom Life

I'm thankful for every moment.~Al Green


Thankful Moment Every

Airline travel is hours of boredom interrupted by moments of stark terror.~Al Boliska


Travel Moments Boredom

I love research so much that I do an enormous amount; it helps put off the moment of starting to write the story.~Alan Garner


Love Moment Research

I wouldn't say they're neglected, but everybody is going to grow old and we should be looking after the older generation more than we do at the moment.~Alan Hansen


Moment Generation Looking

When I look back at many of the moments of wonder, awe, or terror that I've got from science fiction, it's often been because I've been put in the head of one of the characters.~Alastair Reynolds


Science Moments Look

From about 5 years old on, I was very contemplative and started to become constantly filled with nostalgia for the present moment and the feeling that it's always fleeting.~Alex Ebert


Moment Present Feeling

It's not that I want to necessarily avoid my darker moments, but I don't capitalize them and put a crown on them and tote them around as the answer anymore.~Alex Ebert


Moments Want Crown

I don't feel that comfortable being on the runway with a G-string. I shoot G-strings with Victoria's Secret, but on the runway... It's really about the moment. I work with professionals. Professional people make everything look perfect, they make everything that you're wearing look great, if it's in a picture or on the runway.~Alessandra Ambrosio


Work Great Moment

The question of who is right and who is wrong has seemed to me always too small to be worth a moment's thought, while the question of what is right and what is wrong has seemed all-important.~Albert J. Nock


Small Moment Me

My mom would take me to restaurants, and the first thing I'd ask for would be a pen and a napkin, and I'd sketch shoes and shoes and shoes.~Alexander Wang


Mom Shoes Me

Mothers always find ways to fit in the work - but then when you're working, you feel that you should be spending time with your children and then when you're with your children, you're thinking about working.~Alice Hoffman


Mom Work Mothers

From the moment my dad died, from the moment I found out there was the possibility of his dying, there were many surprises - years after, minutes after. The moments I was okay were as surprising as the ones that I wasn't. Making it through the eulogy without losing it. And then the guilt I felt about it. Surprise!~Alysia Reiner


Dad Moment Losing

Anyone who wants to offer me as mushy, earthy, crunchy a role as they can, I will probably take it. In real life, I cry at a drop of a hat, and I'm a mom, and I'm pretty mushy! We all have so many colors as actors that we want to show.~Alysia Reiner


Mom Life Colors

I'm one of those girls that cries at the drop of a hat. I'm oversensitive, if anything. I'm a mom. I'm very earthy, crunchy granola. I compost.~Alysia Reiner

My dad's an architect and my mom owned a French bakery for twelve years.~Alison Lohman

Life Freedom Moment

The first time I ever heard professional actors delivering lines that I wrote was completely surreal and was just a gigantic moment in my life. It was just a little bit mind-blowing and completely strange to have something that had been on my computer being said out loud.~Andrea Seigel


Life Time Moment

Ultimately, criticism that 'The Real World' has devolved into a lesser enterprise comes from the viewers who came of age alongside it, not the teens of the moment that MTV has always existed for.~Andrea Seigel


Age World Moment

My mom was always pretty supportive. She saw me do plays and she'd always act out the parts I did. My aunt, who played a big part in my life, was a little bit more reserved, because if they don't see you on TV every week they think you must be starving.~Angela Bassett


Mom Life Week

This journey is not over. Our education initiatives have so much momentum, and we're committed to sharing even more stories from the Arctic when we return.~Ann Bancroft


Education Journey Momentum

Be ready for when your time comes, you will have that window of opportunity, so seize the moment and capitalise on it.~Anthony Anderson

Moment Parent Single

It was very punk rock for me to take a stab at working with Justin Bieber. I don't know how people portray that, or 'Climax,' for that matter. But for me, it was the most adventurous thing I could have done at that exact moment.~Ariel Rechtshaid

When I was 3, my mom sent in a video of me singing George Strait to 'America's Funniest Home Videos.'~Austin Mahone

There is a certain moment in the film when the son is in the nursing home and he goes to the television and turns it off because he sees himself in the image.~Atom Egoyan


Son Home Moment

It is about this very abstract sense of displacement that he feels the moment he turns off the television.~Atom Egoyan


Moment Television Sense

My mom is the type of mom who wonders why I haven't used my psychology degree to become a successful clinical psychologist.~Autre Ne Veut


Mom Successful Psychology

My mother and my grandmother are pioneers of Mexican cuisine in this country, so I grew up in the kitchen. My mom, Zarela Martinez, was by far my biggest influence and inspiration - and toughest critic.~Aaron Sanchez


Mother Mom Grandmother

You have to find it in the moment, and that's one of the challenges of being an actor - especially a film actor - is that you have to maintain these heightened emotions for long periods of time. There's no trick to it. You just have to do.~Aaron Stanford


Time Moment Challenges

Because Mr. Mandela's early opponents invested so many resources into distorting the true nature of his advocacy, the singular historic moment millions now celebrate could have been tragically lost to guerrilla decontextualization.~Aberjhani


Nature Moment Celebrate

'Step Brothers' itself, when I did it, I don't know if I had any idea that it would become a defining moment in my career and life like it has, and I'm really happy that that's the one that ended up being that for me.~Adam Scott


Life Happy Moment

I was raised in a spirit of the importance of service to your fellow man. My mom is a senator back home in South Africa. My father is a very caring and generous individual.~Adhir Kalyan


Mom Home Father

As a reader, when the writer gets sentimental, you drift, because there's something fishy going on there. You recognize a moment that's largely about the writer and the writer's own need to believe in something that might not in fact exist. As a reader, you think, 'Where did the story go? Where did the person I'm reading about go?'~Adrian Nicole LeBlanc


Moment Believe Reading

The word majesty was now dropped; but, with the deepest respect and humility, I was addressed as the count. What could I do? I accepted the title, and from that moment I was known as Count Peter.~Adelbert von Chamisso


Respect Humility Moment

One time, my mom told us, 'No TV.' It was 3 P.M., and I was sneaking it in. She put her hand on the back of the TV to see if it was warm, and it was. So she pulled the cord out of the wall, opened the second-floor window, and just threw it out the window.~Akiva Schaffer


Mom Time Window

Nothing is better than the moment you have Michael Bolton dressed as Forrest Gump and you see it in action.~Akiva Schaffer

No matter where you are or where you grow up, you always go through the same awkward moments of being a teenager and growing up and trying to figure out who you are.~Aimee Teegarden


Growing Up Moments Trying

Don't worry about everything and really enjoy the moment.~Aimee Teegarden


Moment Enjoy Worry

I'm excited about becoming a transmedia storyteller. The idea that we can tell the 'Agent Mom' story online with MTV Comics and build a fan base that we can take over to Paramount to discuss turning that story it into a movie is just awesome.~Alaina Huffman


Mom Story Awesome

'Agent Mom' is a perfect opportunity for me to do what I love... develop characters, act and take incredible stories to my fans. So yes, I can absolutely see myself cast as 'Agent Mom.'~Alaina Huffman


Mom Love Myself

My mom told us that we should have good shoes, a good suit, and a watch, so I was running around at age 10 looking like a little old man. But somehow I grew to understand that a watch is a representation of myself, of my culture, taste, awareness and aesthetic.~Aldis Hodge

Americans often have trouble enjoying the present moment.~Alan Dundes

Mom Home School

Elephants are highly emotional. Whatever they are feeling, they let it out immediately, and the histrionics are over and forgotten in a moment, lasting no longer than the cloud formations that are constantly coming apart and re-forming overhead. There is no guile in pachyderms.~Alex Shoumatoff


Moment Cloud Feeling

Year after year, the Nobel Awards bring a moment of happiness not only to the recipients, not only to colleagues and friends of the recipients, but even to strangers.~Alfred Hershey

Moment People Husband

Both my mom and my dad have always included me in intelligent conversations about people, about characters, about how people work. My dad and my mom still read all scripts that I find interesting. I send them an e-mail, and I'm like, 'Okay, I have my eye on this,' or whatever.~Alicia Vikander


Mom Work Dad

I probably revisit in my work the moment at which I realised that dreams couldn't be reality.~Alice Lowe


Work Dreams Moment

But to sustain a marriage for 50 years, you have to get real a little bit and find someone who is understanding and who you can grow with. My mom always says, 'Marry the man who loves you a millimeter more.'~Ali Larter


Mom Marriage Man

I really believe that God puts things in front of you for a reason, even if you don't always appreciate it in the moment.~Amanda Borden


God Moment Believe

A lot of professional dancers become professional when they turn 15 or 16 years old, when they're still children. So you've trained every single waking moment up until that point for a career that could maybe only last 10 years, maybe longer if your body holds up, if your injuries are kept at bay.~Amanda Schull


Children Moment Injuries

Every dancer has injuries, and your injury could happen that season that you were getting that one part that you've wanted to do your whole career. So you have to appreciate every single moment until it happens.~Amanda Schull


Moment Appreciate Injuries

The best gift we can have is living in the present moment and really enjoying it for what it is; and, not being in our heads and getting sidetracked.~Amy Smart

I still feel like a kid sometimes myself so hard to believe that I'm a mom. Now I'm an adult! It only took 38 years!~Ana Ortiz


Mom Myself Believe

I was really lucky. My gal pal was my mom.~Ana Ortiz


Mom Lucky Really

My dad and mom divorced when I was around ten, and I didn't live with him after that, though he was close by and we saw each other weekly. I wasn't really aware that he was a writer; I didn't start reading his writing until I was about fifteen. It occurred to me then that my dad was kind of special; he's still one of my favorite writers.~Andre Dubus III


Mom Dad Writing

I still remember 1997 when I made the movie 'Storm Riders;' that moment, a lot of American producers want to hire me to make movies in the States.~Andrew Lau

I still remember 2002. It's a very hard time for Hong Kong industry, no movies in Hong Kong, and also at this moment I start my new company, so many people said, 'You're crazy.'~Andrew Lau


Time Moment People

My mother was predominately a stay-at-home mom.~Andrew Rannells


Mother Mom Stay-At-Home

Whether it's a 16-year old girl, or a mom, or a guy, or anybody, as long as they come up and they're excited to meet me 'cause they've had some sort of relationship with something I've created, it's the coolest thing ever. It never gets old. It's awesome.~Andy Grammer


Mom Relationship Girl

I don't feel like I've hit my stride. So I wonder what the moment will be when I get to be who I want to be.~Anna Torv

Mom Friends Forest

I have never, for a single moment, been aware of pressure from anyone in television about how I dress, what my shape is or how I speak. I've always written my own scripts. I've always been the first to point out that I need to be fit. I need to look good.~Anne Robinson


Good Moment Dress

I'm a church boy. I got whuppin's. So I'm afraid at any moment my grandmother could just swing down from heaven with a switch.~Anthony Hamilton

Life Moments Human

Once you permit those who are convinced of their own superior rightness to censor and silence and suppress those who hold contrary opinions, just at that moment the citadel has been surrendered.~Archibald MacLeish

Being a mom's so empowering and incredible. I'm one of those people who believes that life brings things to you at a certain time for a certain reason, and if you just go with it, that's where the best moments come from.~Ashlee Simpson

There's moments where I want to break down and cry, but not give up.~Ashlee Simpson

My dad, when he was young, did Shakespeare in school, and my mom was a little bit of an artist, but everybody was pragmatic.~Ato Essandoh


Mom School Dad

It's just been my mom and I for, like, three years or so. I love being able to not have to feel like I have to share the whole everything with the world, which is why I'm not very good at the Snap Chat, and I need help with my social media. Because I... I kind of just like having just us.~Auli'i Cravalho


Mom Love Good

I've danced hula since I was 5. My mom danced hula as well. It's been in my family from far back and really connected me to my ancestors.~Auli'i Cravalho

I always like whatever I did most recently. It's the closest to who I am at the moment.~Ayumi Hamasaki


I Am Moment Most

My mom keeps me grounded and all that. She makes me do chores.~Auli'i Cravalho


Mom Me She

I credit my singing to my mom because she didn't give me a binky when I was a baby. I cried and screamed for the first six months - my mom would say four years of my life - and I developed wonderful lungs.~Auli'i Cravalho


Mom Life Baby

I love being a mom - I really do! I didn't realize how much I would love it!~Autumn Reeser


Mom Love Realize

My mom thought I might be good for voiceover. She thought I had a cute voice, so maybe I could do a cartoon or something. And while we were looking into that, we also thought I should get into theater acting, so I tried it and the first audition I went on, I booked it. And it kind of just snowballed from there.~Atticus Shaffer


Mom Good Cute

Just recently I was in Target with my mom shopping, and out of the blue, I see this father and his two daughters and he says, 'Can they get a picture with you?' And I'm thinking to myself, 'Am I the one millionth customer or something?'~Atticus Shaffer


Mom Myself Father

I've always been homeschooled, so doing it on set is kind of the same thing. My mom makes it very interactive - we'll get a book on chocolate and learn how to make it, or she will buy antique items. I love military history, the mechanics and strategy of it.~Atticus Shaffer


Mom Love History

If a woman is comfortable with herself, I think that's what radiates. I think the moment you start questioning your body and looks is when you get into trouble.~Alanna Ubach


Woman Moment Start

Everyone in my family is an artist. Both my parents are painters and my mom's an opera singer. I was never shown any other way to process life.~Aleksa Palladino

A writer stops writing the moment he or she puts the last full stop to their text, and at that point the book is in limbo and doesn't come to life until the reader picks it up and the reader flips the pages.~Alberto Manguel


Life Book Moment

Combining music, theater and comedy is a new and broader form of expression. In certain combinations you can make people laugh one moment, cry the next, and then be astounded by the beauty of the music.~Aleksey Igudesman


Music Beauty Moment

It is the prayer of my innermost being to realize my supreme identity in the liberated play of consciousness, the Vast Expanse. Now is the moment, Here is the place of Liberation.~Alex Grey


Moment Prayer Identity

If you film a scene in a wide shot, especially a disturbing, distressing moment, I do feel like that helps you feel as though you're the room with these people, instead of cutting it up and getting close - which you wouldn't be doing if you were actually in a room with these people.~Alex Karpovsky


Moment People Doing

My construction business represents 10 or 20 times what I'll ever invest in football. But from the moment I bought the Chargers, I would become forever known as the owner of that NFL franchise.~Alex Spanos


Business Football Moment

I was on the field praising quarterback Dan Fouts during a ceremony to retire his number. Boos began shaking the stadium. It was a moment of misery like I'd never experienced before. Afterward, dejection hung over me for days.~Alex Spanos

In the first moments, the members of the Presidium who were with me at the Secretariat were taken to the Party Central Committee under the control of Soviet forces.~Alexander Dubcek


Moments Me Control

The American story is a story of great moments and dreadful moments.~Alexis Denisof


Great American Moments

I just want to live each moment, but it's kind of hard to do that when you are asked to analyze yourself constantly. But it's also good in that you are forced to think about things that you don't ordinarily think about. I think it's strange.~Alexis Bledel


Good Moment Yourself

I was a big fan of Aaliyah's. Growing up, my mom was a big fan of her music. When I grew to have my own taste in music, I really loved 'One In A Million.' That was my jam.~Alexandra Shipp

I'm a just a mom when I walk down the street.~Alice Barrett

I do Pilates twice a week; I hike and I go to the gym. My days of being that hardcore-workout person are over. Don't get me wrong, I still want to be the hot mom!~Alicia Coppola

The situation in the region is flammable and may explode at any moment, because of the crucial events and because of the absence of justice in executing the international legitimacy resolutions, regarding the Israeli Arab cause and the oppression on Palestinians by Israelis.~Ali Abdullah Saleh

I had ridiculous amounts of energy. Mom's like, you're driving me crazy - do you want to try gymnastics? From the moment I started it, I loved it and it kind of was like storybook from there.~Alicia Sacramone


Mom Moment Crazy

This is the hardest job I've ever had, being a mom, but it's the most rewarding job I've ever had.~Ally Walker


Mom Job Most

My mother was a stay-at-home mom until I was about 11, when she got a job - and it was like a light came on inside her. It's not wrong to be passionate about your career. When you love what you do, you bring that stimulation back to your family.~Allison Pearson


Mother Mom Love

I want to stay true to who I am by trying to be in the moment.~Alyson Hannigan

Mom Reading Long

We have to keep an eye on the future with a sense of the past in every passing moment of the present.~Amanda Harlech


Future Past Moment

I think the reason I'm a writer is because first, I was a reader. I loved to read. I read a lot of adventure stories and mystery books, and I have wonderful memories of my mom reading picture books aloud to me. I learned that words are powerful.~Andrew Clements


Mom Adventure Memories

We are playing at home, with full stadiums and passionate fans. It will be very special moment for me.~Andriy Shevchenko


Home Moment Me

I remember, my mom, she's lived in Spain for about thirty years, and we were playing the Royal Albert Hall, and she was with some friends from New York. Morrissey came out with the sign 'The Queen is Dead,' and my mom's friends are like, 'Oh my God.' They took it literally.~Andy Rourke


Mom God Friends

I hope that through my work, artists will take some chances, break some rules, and make art that comes from inside of them. I would like to be remembered as a kind person, a great Mom, and a bit unruly - in a good way!~Angela Cartwright


Mom Work Art

I like people who are devoted to me: men who know I'm the most fabulous thing in the world, and they just look at me with adoration. That's how my dad looked at my mom, and that's how I expected to be looked at.~Angela Bowie


Mom Dad Men

As others have recently suggested, the term 'gamer' is no longer useful as an identity because games are for everyone. These days, even my mom spends an inordinate amount of time gaming on her iPad. So I'll take a cue from my younger self and say I don't care about being a 'gamer,' but I sure do love video games.~Anita Sarkeesian


Mom Love Time

People close to me called me 'Curry in a Hurry.' I was moving through life at 100 miles an hour trying to further my career and be a great mom and make everyone happy.~Ann Curry


Mom Life Happy

In Washington, I'll always support military families and help veterans make the transition home, not just as your congressman but as a proud Army mom.~Ann Callis


Mom Home Support

I'm not sure plays tell people anything. I think plays include an audience in an experience that is happening in that moment, and that's the specialness. What people take away has almost as much to do with what they bring as what we do.~Anna D. Shapiro


Experience Moment People

What we truly and earnestly aspire to be, that in some sense we are. The mere aspiration, by changing the frame of the mind, for the moment realizes itself.~Anna Jameson


Moment Mind Sense

There was definitely a moment, a time after 'The Hand That Rocks the Cradle', when I did get offered a lot of women in jeopardy-type roles. But I couldn't do it, physically, I just couldn't. But now I know what I know, I wonder if I should have played the whole fame game a little more.~Annabella Sciorra


Time Women Moment

I try to live the moment and not obey laws, rules, conventions, or norms; to react to a sensation, a feeling, or an emotion. You can't program emotion.~Anne Parillaud


Moment Rules Live

My mom always knew I was going to be an actor because I was a ham from the very beginning, so she would push me toward it, which is really unconventional for Indian families to do.~Aarti Mann


Mom Beginning Me

Sometimes when it comes to the iconic kind of moments, when I read the script for the first time, you get little goose bumps or something because it really is kind of exciting.~Aaron Ashmore


Time Moments You

I don't like the word 'experiment' in the context of art in general. It implies something immature, unfinished, something entertaining for a moment before it becomes irrelevant.~Abel Korzeniowski


Art Moment Context

You eat and sleep it all day long and play on the streets until mom calls you in. My story is no different than anybody else's.~Adam Oates


Mom Day Sleep

A little secret - I'm the child of a shrink. I am; my mom's a shrink, and my father's a lawyer. So believe me, I analyze and negotiate. That is a huge amount of the director's work, especially when you're working with people who - such a variety.~Adam Shankman


Mom Work Father

Startup stories are always smoother in the telling than they are in reality. A startup is not one, but a series of 'Aha!' moments, and some which seem like 'Aha!' moments but turn out not to be.~Anthony Goldbloom

I am fully aware of the critical moments we face as a country.~Antonis Samaras


I Am Moments Face

One Moment in Time because I think it describes me as a person and how I felt about being on the show.~Anwar Robinson

Do not for a moment suppose that you must make yourself better, or prepare your heart for a worthy reception of Christ, but come at once - come as you are.~Archibald Alexander

I remember my mom saying that after you have a baby you get really thin. So you gain all that weight and then you just lose it and keep losing it.~Arizona Muse


Mom Baby Losing

Many people experience Gethsemane moments.~Arthur Middleton

After school, my mom would pick me up and I would just go to visit my dad in the recording studio, and I would see him working with Mark Hamill or hear him doing the 'Transformers' or a 'G.I. Joe' or the 'Rugrats.'~Ashley Bell

I remember the feeling of a tweed Chanel jacket because my mom used to wear one to work.~Astrid Berges-Frisbey

I did a musical that I don't think anybody ever saw, called 'One Shining Moment,' and in that cast was Megan Mullally and Kevin Anderson.~Alan Ruck


Moment Think Did

Some of the most exciting moments in 'Star Wars' are when you're cutting between stories and you're building this momentum.~Alan Yang

I was the child who would leave school and take her clothes off the second I got into the house. I made my mom buy me lingerie when I was 5 years old. I was a sicko. My mother must have been mortified.~Alessandra Torresani

Even the pallid daughters of Albion forget for a moment their Pre-Raphaelite poses by burying themselves in the sonorous sortilege of the Antilles.~Alejo Carpentier

I'm the leading scorer in the cup, and that's lovely, but don't forget this is also a great moment for the whole squad, when the two things coincide you can't ask for more.~Alessandro Del Piero


Great Moment Forget

My father loved 'Godard and Truffaut.' He was more artsy. My mom loved the 'Bourne' trilogy; she likes big blockbusters. She loved that I did 'I Am Legend.' My passion for acting came with my passion for movies.~Alice Braga

I'm too young to have kids, but I really want to be a mom. I don't know if it's a Latin thing, but I love kids.~Alice Braga

My mom dressed me in silk to go to elementary school. In kindergarten, they sent me home because I couldn't do finger painting in my dress.~Allegra Versace


Mom Home School

I had really great parents who always gave me lots of opportunity for choice, but I didn't always realize how rare that was for a girl for them to say, 'You can be a mom or have a career or do both or do something we haven't thought of yet.'~Ally Condie


Mom Parents Great

As I have gotten older, I am more of an independent woman, and my mom and I have our own lives, but we are still best friends and can be there for each other.~Amanda Fuller


Mom Best Woman

Within months after reading the novel 'The Hunger Games,' I went from telling my mom that I could see myself as this character to actually getting the role. My mother reminds me that if I could manifest such an important role just because I wanted it so much, all of my dreams are possible.~Amandla Stenberg


Mother Mom Dreams

My mom reminds me that all things are possible.~Amandla Stenberg

I think our dad and our mom have always told us that in racing we're a team, and we work together, and that's how it's always been, and I think that's how it's always going to be.~Amber Cope


Mom Work Dad

I did some pretty bad things as a teenager. When I was 13, I took my friend's mom's car out for a joyride, and I actually managed to hit somebody else's car. No one was hurt, but needless to say, I didn't get behind the wheel again until I had my driver's license.~Amanda Righetti


Mom Car Hurt

I wasn't even going to do acting. I don't know how it even happened, to be honest. I was going to go into psychology or something like that. Or business. And then some moment of madness took over and I decided, 'Oh, I'm gonna go to London and try to be an actor.'~Amrita Acharia


Business Moment Acting

When you have a new baby, you can get really overwhelmed, since it's such a huge responsibility. You're thrilled to be a mom, but your sleep schedule is so thrown off and it can be scary if you don't have a good support system.~Amy Locane


Mom Good Sleep

When I was 19 years old, both of my parents died in the same year; my mom of cancer and my dad in a car accident. Through the next two or three years and a series of bad decisions - all my own, I might add - I ended up literally homeless, before that was even a word. I even slept occasionally under a pier on the Gulf Coast.~Andy Andrews


Mom Parents Dad

I entered KC College in 1975. When I came here for my interview, for my admission, every person I spoke to spoke to me in Sindhi. Be it Kundanani, Bhambani, Nichani, Kevalramani... and they also thought that Ambani was the same. For a moment, I thought that I got my admission at KC College because I have a 'ni' in my surname.~Anil Ambani

I think when you're a mom and an actor, it forces you to leave any actor neuroses behind and just concentrate on the work.~Anna Silk


Mom Work You

My dad is from India, my mom is from Russia. Fortunately, we moved a lot. I went to a lot of different schools and completely different cultures, so that's my background.~Annet Mahendru

I'm comfortable around girls because I grew up with two sisters and a single mom. I feel very lucky for all they have taught me. They tell me to be myself, have fun, and focus on eye expressions.~Anwar Hadid


Mom Myself Focus

I try not to think about anyone's expectations but rather focus on always doing my personal best. Modeling was never a thought in my mind growing up, but my mom felt it was important for me to be open to business opportunities and expand my horizons.~Anwar Hadid

Moment Feel Everything

I don't storyboard. I guess it dates back to my days in live television, where there was no possibility of storyboarding and everything was shot right on the spot - on the air, as we say - at the moment we were transmitting. I prefer to be open to what the actors do, how they interact to the given situation.~Arthur Penn

I want to buy my mom a house; I want my family to never have to worry about anything. And I just want to have an amazing career in music, because I love to do it.~Ashthon Jones

In all nations an exceptional man exists that compensates the deficiencies of the remainder. In those moments, when humanity is found collectively in a state of decadence, there always remain those exceptional beings as point of reference.~Augusto Roa Bastos
