I think all jocks have a sensitive side. It’s just will they show it to anybody? Will they let their guard down and stop being tough and the cool jock guy around their friends or just relax? I don’t know if it’s best to say opening up but just relax and really say what you’re actually thinking and not what you think people want to hear.
The athlete of today is not an athlete alone. He’s the center of a team – doctors scientists coaches agents and so on.
I work with really cool people and so far I haven’t been approached in any embarrassing manner when it comes to image.
In Britain by contrast we still think that class plays a part in determining a person’s life chances so we’re less inclined to celebrate success and less inclined to condemn failure. The upshot is that it’s much easier to be a failure in Britain than it is in America.
Everyone goes to the same exhibitions and the same parties stays in the same handful of hotels eats at the same no-star restaurants and has almost the same opinions. I adore the art world but this is copycat behavior in a sphere that prides itself on independent thinking.
As a young man even if I was going to see a play or a film by myself I didn’t feel like I was alone. There was something that was unfolding up there that brought me into it. And I recognised that. For those two hours it made me feel like I belonged to something really good.
Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
I like pens. My writing is so amazing there’s never a need to erase.
Cricket makes no sense to me. I find it beautiful to watch and I like that they break for tea. That is very cool but I don’t understand. My friends from The Clash tried to explain it years and years ago but I didn’t understand what they were talking about.
When the truth is that there would be no great Western music and certainly no decent choral repertoire without the Catholic faith.
I learned the truth at seventeen That love was meant for beauty queens And high school girls with clear skinned smiles Who married young and then retired.
In the modern world of business it is useless to be a creative original thinker unless you can also sell what you create.
Well for starters we have to do more to create demand for new technologies that can reduce our dependence on foreign oil and environmental degradation.
I’m a father. It isn’t just my life any more. I don’t want my kid finding bottles in the house or seeing his father completely smashed.
I used to look like a deer in headlights on the red carpet. You step out of the car and it’s bedlam. Everyone’s got crazy eyes.
Growing up with my family gave me some of my best memories. I’d like to have a family of my own – slip away for a bit and do nothing but spend those early years with my children.
A sculptor is a person who is interested in the shape of things a poet in words a musician by sounds.
Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards for they are subtle and quick to anger.
Dreams have only the pigmentation of fact.
I’ve just been growing right along. It’s painful but it’s a great pain and I like suffering for great results. It’s like going to the gym. It hurts really bad at first but after a couple of months and after that diet you’re looking so hot.
I have three dogs a cat fish. I’m a huge animal lover. They’re amazing.
If you continually diet you are putting your body in a quasi-famine situation. It slows your metabolism down and breaks the thermostat. Diets don’t work. They don’t help you understand why you’re eating more than your body wanted in the first place.
I think you create your own hipness.
As a gay Jewish white South African I belong to quite a lot of minority groups. You constantly have to question who you are what you are and whether you have the courage to be who you are.
You take the healthiest diet in the world if you gave those people vitamins they would be twice as healthy. So vitamins are valuable.
I think that Scottish people like Canadians are often misunderstood and what I like about my Scottish friends and relatives is how quickly it can go from love to anger. It’s a great dynamic.
