Hey, our Founding Fathers wore long hair and powdered wigs – I don’t see anybody trying to look like them today, either… But we do look to them as role models.
I must tell you, to get started today must be very difficult ’cause whatever it takes today is very tough. They have to invest a million dollars in a video just to see if you have a hit record.
First of all, I think the situation today is different. We’re in a different place than we were in ’93, ’94.
I’m most in my element on tour, with a gig that day, like today. I’m on the road where I am supposed to be. I will be where I’m supposed to be at nighttime, on stage, in front of people, doing my thing.
For, quite literally, the whole world today is looking for us to take the lead in carrying out those obligations imposed on the American people as a whole by the beautiful, compassionate and courageous principle of noblesse oblige.
I never consciously said, ‘I want to be an actor.’ It sounds stupid, but it’s kind of like being a painter or something. You don’t say, ‘From today on I’m going to be a painter.’ It’s not something conscious – you’ve just been painting pictures all your life.
In today’s world, it is no longer unimaginable to think that business can operate – and even thrive – in an environmentally-friendly manner.
Today we are afraid of simple words like goodness and mercy and kindness. We don’t believe in the good old words because we don’t believe in good old values anymore. And that’s why the world is sick.
Today’s global landscape is increasingly interconnected. China and the Middle East play critical roles towards international peace and security.
The Pentagon today will not allow any of these people who work for the Pentagon, to talk to the media. They have gagged them from talking to members of Congress.
Our existing media system today is the direct result of government laws and subsidies that created it.
Even Catholic parishes today are not wanting for talent. But no serious singer or organist will get anywhere near the typical music program, at least if he wants to retain his self-respect.
In today’s world, new infections and diseases can spread across the country and even across the world in a matter of days, or even hours, making early detection critical.
It didn’t rain today, so I didn’t have to work. Why don’t you have to sit around and wait until it rains?
We are not at the same place we were in 1973. This country today is drifting, moving steadily towards the pro-life position because the data is with us.
The packaging has to really sell the product today, because kids can go out and buy a CD and then 10 kids can burn them. So you have to really be on your toes.
You had to pitch in and out. The zone didn’t belong to the hitters; it belonged to the pitchers. Today, if you pitch too far inside, the umpire would stop you right there. I don’t think it’s fair.
I’m trying to use the language of today to express a general existential crisis that I think the world and I are going through.
I was on the cover of a lot of newspapers. I was on the cover of USA Today for every single day for a month. I was on the masthead, so I tend to get recognized a lot, and in weird places. It’s always flattering, and it’s always odd. It’s always at the worst possible time.
That is the godawful thing about television today. Performers don’t have any place to hit and miss. You’re either in or you’re out; you don’t have a chance to become good at your craft. If you make three pictures in a row and they don’t go over, you’re out of the business.
Feminism is dated? Yes, for privileged women like my daughter and all of us here today, but not for most of our sisters in the rest of the world who are still forced into premature marriage, prostitution, forced labor – they have children that they don’t want or they cannot feed.
These are some of the things for which we believe the American people owe no little gratitude to the Dutch; and these are the things for which today, speaking in the name of the American people, we venture to express their heartfelt thanks.
I think the reaction to a World War II situation would be the same today as it was in 1942. Initially, people would question, but once patriotism got stirred up, the whole thing would gather momentum and we’d all pull together.
It was good because it helped me get where I’m at today, but then people stereotype and say we don’t want to use her because she’s known as the ‘Wonderbra girl’.
Whatever else may divide us, Europe is our common home; a common fate has linked us through the centuries, and it continues to link us today.
Today the traveller on the Nile enters a wonderland at whose gates rise the colossal pyramids of which he has had visions perhaps from earliest childhood.
Still today, I cannot cross the threshold of a teaching institution without physical symptoms, in my chest and my stomach, of discomfort or anxiety. And yet I have never left school.
I’m blown away by the graphical detail of today’s games. I can’t imagine that it’s going to get any better, but it’s just going to continually progress and soon we’ll be living in that world.
I’m asthmatic. I was a lot bigger back then, and I still get winded on stage today. But I’ve learned how to pace it now. I have musical breaks in there.
Today’s Communism can survive only if it abandons the myth of an infallible party, if it continues to think, and if it becomes democratic.
Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present.
Players today are concerned about the money, but the large dollars only go to those players who are the best.
The magnificent army that fought in Desert Storm is a great army, and it still is a magnificent army today. But it was one we designed for the Cold War, and the Cold War has been over for ten years now.
Unlike then, the mail stream of today has diminished by such things as e-mails and faxes and cell phones and text messages, largely electronic means of communication that replace mail.
Global warming is real. It is happening today. It is being charted by our satellites. It is being charted by our scientists. It is being charted by those of us in this body, and I think the real key is if we are ready to admit that fact and take the action to make the necessary conversion.
Today, currently, business owners can go out and find out if the person they are hiring is eligible to work here or if they are not. We need to think about how we are impacting workers.
I have no idea how to become successful in children’s tv programming today other than to say that whereever you find that rare animal being pursued, insert yourself into its environment; get in the door in any position and work from within.
Our libraries are valuable centers of education, learning and enrichment for people of all ages. In recent years, libraries have taken on an increasingly important role. today’s libraries are about much more than books.
The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.
In old movies, the cinematography is a thousand times better than anything today. Writing, a thousand times better.
