I don’t have a normal job, so I really appreciate having friends who are writers and artists. It’s fun to have a group of people you can call in the middle of the day to go for a hike.
I got thrown out of school several weeks in my senior year being caught in the girls’ dorm. This was 1954, friends. The girls’ dorm was off limits. Even to girls, I think.
It’s a job – someone’s gotta kiss Jennifer Aniston. The reality is, Jennifer and I can do our job well because we truly are friends. But when the day’s over, she goes home to her boyfriend and I go home to a magazine.
Neither soldiers nor money can defend a king but only friends won by good deeds, merit, and honesty.
I’m certain that it was an incredible gift for me to not only be friends with some of the greatest blues people who’ve ever lived, but to learn how they played, how they sang, how they lived their lives, ran their marriages, and talked to their kids.
I sing both in my shower and in my car, mostly in my car, because I have this weird thing – whenever I’m singing to the radio – my friends kind of hate it – but I pick out the harmonies in my head, and I’m singing the harmonies to the tracks and I’m jamming it out.
It just doesn’t mean anything to me, the high-profile, big money side of things. I just want enough to live on, and to be able to get on with what I do, and hang around my friends.
William Holden and I weren’t just good friends. He was my very best friend. I feel his loss very much still.
I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success… such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything.
My friends are Peter Gabriel, Bruce Springsteen, and we’re singing about mortality, getting older. It’s an interesting time.
I have no trouble with y enemies. But my god damn friends… they are the ones that keep me walking the floors at night.
In life it wasn’t what you know, but who you know. I had people who were trying to buy teams and had they bought the teams, I would have gotten to coach because they wanted me to coach. But the people who have the teams hire their friends.
I was a tomboy and I didn’t have a bunch of brothers but I always wanted them and so I sort of adopted a few of my great friends to be my brother.
We played soccer a lot with our friends and at school. We weren’t on an official team or anything, but we’d definitely be up for it in gym or in after-school pickup games where we live.
So when I write characters and situations and relationships, I try to sort of utilize what I know about the world, limited as it is, and what I hear from my friends and see with my relatives.
I have a lot of friends who get up most mornings and go to jobs they absolutely hate. I don’t think that’s what life is about and I’m so fortunate that I actually love what I do.
I guess whatever maturity is there may be there because I’ve been keeping a journal forever. In high school my friends would make fun of me – you’re doing your man diary again. So I was always trying to translate experience into words.
My wife, my family, my friends – they’ve all taught me things about love and what that emotion really means. In a nutshell, loving someone is about giving, not receiving.
Men of sense often learn from their enemies. It is from their foes, not their friends, that cities learn the lesson of building high walls and ships of war.
Well, I had said to my friends, it’s going to be good, but I bet it’s going to be cheesy in a way. And I didn’t think that at all. It’s so good and was just so funny.
Our friends in the group Chicago, they just numbered theirs and we thought that was kind of neat but it made continuity from album to album and that was our way of doing it.
It is always safe to learn, even from our enemies; seldom safe to venture to instruct, even our friends.
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.
The Temple will not be completed until every living stone is there. And then what? The next thing will be that which our Masonic friends make so much of, and which we make so much of namely: the glorification of the temple.
It has been one of my difficulties, in arguing this question out of doors with friends or strangers, that I rarely find any intelligible agreement as to the object of the war.
If you lived in a provincial town like Torre Annunziata, where there was nothing to do in the evening but go to the movies with your friends, the cinema was a world of fantasy. I had always been in love with it.
Some Critics on the Hearth are not only good-natured, but have rather too high, or, if that is impossible, let us say too pronounced, an opinion of the abilities of their literary friends.
After September 11th, nations from across the globe offered their generous assistance to the people of New York. And whenever our friends around the world need our assistance, New York is there.
One of the hardest aspects of this protracted public persona is not knowing others as well as they feel they know me. It’s a rather clumsy feeling actually; to not know someone who acts as though you’re old friends.
It sounds cliche, but success is your friends, your family, what you do, and if you’re happy when you wake up.
It is always well to accept your own shortcomings with candor but to regard those of your friends with polite incredulity.
It was very hard for all of us. It’s still very hard. The anniversary of his death just passed, and every single one of his friends, still, after all these years… it’s unbelievable.
But sometimes in the midst of worry, anxiety and hard work, it has been pretty hard to bear all these false reports going about the country – to see my friends alienated and being made to believe things that were absolutely false.
Understand that friends come and go, but with a precious few you should hold on. The older you get, the more you need the people who knew you when you were young.
So, influenced by these advisors and this hope, I have at length allowed my friends to publish the work, as they had long besought me to do.
There is no glory in war, yet from the blackness of its history, there emerge vivid colours of human character and courage. Those who risked their lives to help their friends.
