  1. When I say something’s going to happen, it’s going to happen.
  2. When I say that basically writing is a hard hustle, I don’t mean that it is a bad life, if one can get away with it. It’s the miracle of miracles to make a living by the typer.
  3. When I say things that sound insane, like only the smartest million people should have the right to vote, well, I mean that.
  4. When I see a new artist I give myself a lot of time to reflect and decide whether it’s art or not.
  5. When I see a story, I ask: is this something I’d like to be in? Is this something I’d like to see? And if I’d like to see it, would I like to tell it?
  6. When I see my mom in the stands, it always pushes me to succeed.
  7. When I see someone like Richard Dawkins, I see my father. I grew up with that. I’m basically the child of Richard Dawkins.
  8. When I see something I like, that’s all that counts. What they use, how they get there, I never bother them.
  9. When I sent those scripts, that was the lowest point of my life. We’d just had our second son, and when I went to collect them from hospital, I went to the bank to try and get some money to buy some diapers, the screen showed I’ve got $26 left.
  10. When I sing for myself, I sing in a more free, athletic way. When I face an audience, there is always some fear that makes me put the brakes on a bit.
  11. When I sing, I think mostly about the music. But I know that, through singing, my body shows everything that I am. I am a very passionate man and I suffer a lot and have a lot of joy also. In my opinion, it is very important for me to find this stimulus and motivation for singing.
  12. When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me’.
  13. When I start writing songs and it turns into an overly belabored intellectual process, I just throw it out.
  14. When I started cooking the meal at home, after I had started cooking in restaurants, I usually would prepare bay scallops or lobster.
  15. When I started creating my work for publication, I just assumed that the focus would be on the work itself and that there wouldn’t be a lot of interest in who was creating the work.
  16. When I started dating I had this kind of Romeo and Juliet, fateful romantic idea about love which was almost that you were a victim and there was a lot of pain involved and that was how it should be.
  17. When I started, I was a theater actress, and there were roles that I couldn’t imagine not playing, like Rosalind in ‘As You Like It.’ I used to think I would die if I could play that. But then I started doing movies, and I had children, and I moved to Los Angeles. And now I kind of can’t remember what those roles would be.
  18. When I started, I’d hear other people saying, ‘God, she’s so bizarre-looking,’ because I didn’t look like the girl next door. But I was just normal. I was the girl next door. There were people in high fashion I could better relate to who were doing something more interesting and not talking this sort of rubbish.
  19. When I started in the theater, I’d do plays by Shakespeare or Ibsen or Chekhov, and they all created great women’s roles.
  20. When I started modeling, it was like, ‘Oh, she’s too dark,’ and I kind of looked at them like, ‘You’re too daft.’
  21. When I started my own business, my main reason for designing clothes was that I wanted to dress rock stars and the people who went to rock concerts. It didn’t go beyond that aspiration at that point.
  22. When I started out, at the CBC in Toronto, there was so little work. It was a different world from what it is now. Now we’re blessed with so much production in so many Canadian cities.
  23. When I started out, I tried out all my stuff on national television. There were no comedy clubs, but even if there were, I don’t think I would have gone to them. I used to do stuff in the bathroom, and then I’d drive down to NBC and do it on ‘The Golddiggers’ with Dean Martin.
  24. When I started out in the late ’80s, my act was pretty terrible, and for years, I kind of toiled in obscurity. I don’t believe in a hierarchy in comedy; I feel that a person deserves respect the first time they get onstage, and after that, they just have to be funny and get more consistent.
  25. When I started out, nobody gave me scripts, so I had to write.
  26. When I started publishing my work, one of the biggest surprises to me was the recurring question about my background and why I wasn’t doing more stories about Asian-Americans.

  31. When I started working for Rolling Stone, I became very interested in journalism and thought maybe that’s what I was doing, but it wasn’t true. What became important was to have a point of view.
  32. When I started working for Rolling Stone, I became very interested in journalism and thought maybe that’s what I was doing, but it wasn’t.
  33. When I started writing comics, ‘comics writer’ was the most obscure job in the world! If I wanted to be a celebrity, I would have become a moody English screen actor.
  34. When I step out onto the ice to compete ‘Romeo and Juliet,’ I don’t feel like a fighter. I feel very nervous, and it’s very difficult for me to get into the mindset for it.

  36. When I take a picture I take 10 percent of what I see.
  37. When I take action, I’m not going to fire a $2 million missile at a $10 empty tent and hit a camel in the butt. It’s going to be decisive.
  38. When I take my kid to school, all the parents stop and stare.
  39. When I talk about democratic socialist, I am talking about Medicare, a single payer health care system for the elderly. And in my view, we should expand that concept to all people. I believe that everybody in this country should be entitled to health care as a right.
  40. When I talk about democratic socialist, I’m not looking at Venezuela. I’m not looking at Cuba. I’m looking at countries like Denmark and Sweden.
  41. When I talk about sad things, I talk about sad things.
  42. When I talk, it shouldn’t just be black girls listening.
  43. When I talk to people in need, they tell me they want to hope; they are eager for opportunity; they are ready for better days. And I can tell you that every time their hopes are disappointed, all nations lose.
  44. When I talked to him on the phone yesterday. I called him George rather than Mr. Vice President. But, in public, it’s Mr. Vice President, because that is who he is.
  45. When I teach, I preach. I thump the Bible. I exhort my students morally. I talk to them about the dedicated life.
  46. When I think about atheist friends, including my father, they seem to me like people who have no ear for music, or who have never been in love.
  47. When I think about growing up, I feel most affected by two travels that I made working in cargo boats when I was 16 and 18. One of them crossed through the Mississippi and Baton Rouge and Mobile, Alabama, and another went all the way to Europe.
  48. When I think back to some of the most fun nights of my life, it was just me out dancing without a care in the world. It’s a release, an outlet.
  49. When I think of influential females in hip-hop, my mind goes to Foxy Brown, hands down.
  50. When I think of ‘Instagram models,’ I say you have to take baby steps. You cannot just walk straight onto the runway.

  53. When I told my parents, ‘I’m going to be an actor,’ they screamed and wept and freaked out.
  54. When I took over as president, I studied the Constitution, and the more I studied it, the more I realised that it does not prevent the president of India from giving the nation a vision. So when I went and presented this vision in Parliament and in legislative assemblies; everyone welcomed it, irrespective of party affiliations.
  55. When I took over the family business, it had already been a publicly traded company for 20 years. During one of the first annual meetings I attended, one shareholder stood up and advised me and everyone in attendance that I should resign.
  56. When I took the SAT, I didn’t get accepted into a single white school that I applied to. Now I’ve got honorary degrees from a lot of those schools that rejected me. Things are different now, but not that much different.
  57. When I tour, I stuff fridges full of organic food and stick to that.
  58. When I tour, it’s like, well, like a food tour as much as a comedy tour. I try to eat at all the weird places, the obscure barbecue joints, burger places. There are a few spots in L.A. that I’m obsessed with – one of them is the Taco Zone taco truck on Alvarado. There are secret off-menu items that are amazing.
  59. When I travel with my kids abroad, I am not myself, but I’m more a father who wants to protect them. Sometimes, I am even aggressive about certain things and get surprised seeing myself like that: for instance, when people want to take pictures of them. I am fine if they want to take my pictures, but they are not public property.
  60. When I turned 16 and got my license, the Chevy Blazer was passed down from my sister, so it was very much a starter car.
  61. When I use my strength in the service of my vision it makes no difference whether or not I am afraid.
  62. When I used to work in television, a tip was rather than looking down the barrel of the camera and imagine people watching, which is terrifying, imagine your most discerning friend observing you, and imagine you’re just talking to them.
  63. When I wake up, I expect things to be good. If they’re not, then I try to set about trying to make them as good as I can ’cause I know I’m gonna have to live that day anyway. So why not try to make the most of it if you can? Some days, they pan out a little better than others, but you still gotta always just try.
  64. When I walk around on the street and someone comes up to me, I have just as many full-grown men with large beards in Slipknot shirts saying he likes my band as much as I do girls with bright pink hair.

  66. When I was 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, I had so many people I looked up to and was so inspired by all these different people. It’s cool to be in that position.
  67. When I was 10 years old, I fled my homeland amid the bomb blasts of civil war in Sudan.
  68. When I was 11 my friend’s mom made a peanut butter sandwich. I ate the sandwich and was like, ‘I’m never eating anything else again.’ And I still eat peanut butter every day. I would put peanut butter on a steak.

  79. When I was 17 or 18 I wanted to become a wine expert, and my parents wouldn’t let me drink. So I was devastated. All I could do was read, and I read and I read. And I’d read something like, you know, ‘Subtle hints of cassis.’
  80. When I was 18, 19, I was presented as the ‘aw shucks’ Nebraska kid who’s coming up with a big serve, and then I flipped out a couple of times, and then I was ueber-brat, when I feel like there’s parts of both, but I don’t think I am either one, if that makes sense.
  81. When I was 18, I thought that, to be a romantic, you couldn’t live past 30.
  82. When I was 18, I went to the Soviet Union. I kept hearing that America was planning to bomb them – lots of bombs were going to come down on these people. I went there not knowing anything, except that I thought the whole thing was stupid and that I wanted to see who these people were that we were going to bomb.
  83. When I was 20, I wanted to be famous and win a Grammy and have people respect and love me.
  84. When I was 8, I thought I was Harrison Ford, Gene Wilder, Richard Pryor, Elvis, and Chuck Norris all at once.
  85. When I was 8 or 9, I started using bulletin board systems, which was the precursor to the Internet, where you’d dial into… a shared system and shared computers. I’ve had an email address since the late ’80s, when I was 8 or 9 years old, and then I got on the Internet in ’93 when it was first starting out.
  86. When I was 8 years old I became a mute and was a mute until I was 13, and I thought of my whole body as an ear, so I can go into a crowd and sit still and absorb all sound. That talent or ability has lasted and served me until today.
  87. When I was 8 years old, I saw ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ in Charlotte, North Carolina. I walked out of there and was so inspired. I loved the movie, and I knew I wanted to be that guy.

  92. When I was a child I had something called Perthes’ Disease which meant I was on crutches, so I was bullied at school and all that sort of stuff.

  94. When I was a child – in wartime, pre-television – books were my life.

  97. When I was a journalist at Wired, I convinced a doctor to implant an RFID tracking device in my arm.
  98. When I was a junior and an up-and-coming athlete, I don’t think I looked to anyone for inspiration. I was so busy trying to improve myself and learning these new events and learning about the decathlon in general that I didn’t really have time to focus on anyone else.
  99. When I was a kid, a policeman was someone you looked up to and respected.
  100. When I was a kid at four years old, that’s when I started amateur wrestling with my dad and family. And when that’s instilled in you, it never goes away.
  101. When I was a kid growing up, I used to watch ‘DuckTales.’
  102. When I was a kid, I loved Elvis, and Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. But I had no connection to Hollywood – and being a movie star was such a far-fetched idea, growing up in Hawaii.
  103. When I was a kid, I never thought much about football. I thought about following in my family’s footsteps and going into professional wrestling.

  106. When I was a kid, I used to send away for those ventriloquist kits on the back of comic books.
  107. When I was a kid, I’d practise Chopin on piano – and I love Chopin! He’s my dawg! Then I’d go out on the stoop and blast the radio. I’m from New York, the concrete jungle. Hip-hop influenced me from day one.
  108. When I was a kid, I’d wake up extraordinarily early every morning and turn on the television, scanning for episodes of ‘The Jetsons.’ For some reason, I loved the notion of a future where there would be flying cars, supercomputers, and most of all, robot maids to take care of the chores.
  109. When I was a kid, it was so important to listen only to bands nobody had ever heard of. I missed out on so much interesting music because of my need to listen to a psychobilly band that only two people knew about… Because I thought I was cool.
  110. When I was a kid, our family used to watch ‘Bonanza.’ I really liked having a Sunday night TV ritual.

  114. When I was a model, I started with an opinion, but was encouraged to lose it. It began as play-acting, but then I lost sight of myself a bit: so when I did the audition for ‘Popworld’ and they asked my opinion, I felt like crying with happiness.
  115. When I was a policy analyst at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, I became obsessed with end user license agreements.
  116. When I was a preteen, I got into singing, and became really obsessed with it. But then, of course, that didn’t work out.
  117. When I was a teenager, I did a lot of pull-ups and push-ups. Every night before bed, I’d do 150 – in sets of 30 or so. Looking back on it now, I’m not totally sure that’s the best way to improve as a climber. But it did make me a lot better at doing pull-ups and push-ups.
  118. When I was a teenager, I used to come to Selfridges, and it was very swanky and overwhelming, and I’d think, ‘Wow, this is amazing.’ I would never have imaged having my own area in the beauty hall! It’s incredible.
  119. When I was a teenager, I was an umpire for a competitive league for 8- to 9-year-olds. I was really bad at it because I didn’t know all the rules, and all these kids were better athletes than me. I made a bad call, and this dad snapped on me. Then he dumped his trash from his cooler, and I had to kick him out of the stands.
  120. When I was a teenager, I would have tried anything that an actress I liked was doing to get thin.
  121. When I was a teenager, the actors I was really into were Mickey Rourke and Sean Penn. I saw ‘Rumble Fish’ on my 16th birthday, and around the same time, it was ‘Falcon and the Snowman’ and ‘Bad Boys’ from Sean Penn.
  122. When I was a young person I went to the university and I learned a rational language, to think with the left side of the brain. But in the right side of the brain you have intuition and imagination. Words are not the truth; they indicate the way to go, but you need to go alone, in silence. Symbols have a language that kills the words.
  123. When I was a younger actor, I would try to keep it serious all day. But I have found, later on, that the lighter I am about things when I’m going to do a big scene that’s dramatic and takes a lot out of you, the better off I am when I come to it.
  124. When I was a younger guy doing comedy, it was a big struggle. Promoters canceled me out of clubs left and right when I called somebody a dummy or a yo-yo. Then they realized I was different.
  125. When I was a youngster I lived with different families. I nearly always felt closer to the man of the house. Maybe because I always dreamed of having a father of my own.
  126. When I was about ten years old, I gave my teacher an April Fool’s sandwich, which had a dead goldfish in it.
  127. When I was about to turn 50, I went into a kind of personal revision and observed my own priorities and what led those priorities in my life. And many things that, in a way, were profound.
  128. When I was an adolescent, I abandoned my country at 23 years to come to Paris to know Andre Breton, the ‘Pope of Surrealism.’ And for three years, I was there working with him being a surrealist.
  129. When I was at ‘SNL,’ I would constantly get in arguments, ‘Why aren’t we more political? We’re not going after Bush.’ Then look what happened – that Sarah Palin season, they were on fire. It was about something.
  130. When I was born here on one of the farms in Israel, my childhood, I never thought for one day that we will not be living together with Arabs.
  131. When I was born, the economy wasn’t in a great state; it was the Depression, and my father had to be quick to try and find work.
  132. When I was diagnosed, I believed my illness would be my great, lifelong weakness. Bipolar disorder was to be my impenetrable prison, and I would be locked up with it in a castle Princess Toadstool style. Thinking there was no way out, I let it consume me.
  133. When I was doing comedy in New York, before I was in movies, I was never known as the deadpan actress. I was just a comedienne.
  134. When I was eight, I told my best friend I got a Hilary Duff autograph, but I just signed it myself.
  135. When I was either 7 or 8 years old, I did a sketch every day of my teacher and what she wore. At the end of the year, I gave her the sketchbook. For me, the sketching of dresses was about fantasy and dreams.
  136. When I was first learning songs, I’d have a favorite song, and I’d take the chords and twist them around. I’d learn the chords and then play them backward. That was my first experimenting with writing a song.
  137. When I was first starting out as a kid, I tried to pad my resume with everything I had ever done – ice-skate, carry a tune. I can’t dance for my life, but I can learn, so I’ll tell people I can dance. I play the piano – I’m a really good pianist, actually.
  138. When I was five, I think, that’s when I started wanting to be an actress. I loved to play. I didn’t like the world around me because it was kind of grim, but I loved to play house. It was like you could make your own boundaries.
  139. When I was five I think, that’s when I started wanting to be an actress.
  140. When I was getting started, I was so busy just fighting my way through, and I was under contract at Warner Brothers. I did 40 hours of color television with the late Robert Taylor as a young cop.
  141. When I was given the opportunity to direct ‘Senna,’ I decided the film had to work for audiences who disliked sport or had never seen a Formula One race in their lives. It had to thrill and emotionally engage people who had never heard of Ayrton Senna.
  142. When I was going to Paris for Paris Fashion Week, I’d often walk down the street and go into all the different shops that we didn’t necessarily have in the U.K., and Maje was definitely one of the ones that stood out for me.
  143. When I was growing in the Callope project, we had an oval parkway. Pavement ran around this whole thing. We’d skate or ride bicycles. There were benches and trees out there. It was paradise to us. They finished building it the same year I was born.
  144. When I was growing up, I had lots of smart classmates that were girls, but none of us were really pushed into math or computers or anything like that. Girls took AP history and AP English and AP European history. And boys took calculus and physics.
  145. When I was growing up, I saw the Aaliyah shirts, the DMX shirts, or the collab shirts with DMX and Aaliyah when they had a single together. Those were the dope collage shirts with their faces all over it. They were doing cool things like that.
  146. When I was growing up, I used to watch ‘Power Rangers’ and ‘Ninja Turtles.’ It seemed like every movie had someone doing martial arts in it, so I would go around punching and kicking trees.
  147. When I was growing up, I wanted to adopt, because I was aware there were kids that didn’t have parents.
  148. When I was growing up, I wasn’t an extrovert. If anything, I was an introverted kid and a very average pupil at school. I was very quiet.
  149. When I was growing up, I went to an Irish-Christian missionary school.
  150. When I was growing up, my mother taught me and my sisters to celebrate each other – there was no room in our household for negativity. She taught us to embrace each other, and this was empowering for us. She also taught us the value of celebrating our differences.
  151. When I was growing up, my mother would always say, ‘It will go on your permanent record.’ There was no ‘permanent record.’ If there were a ‘permanent record,’ I’d never be able to be a lawyer. I was such a bum in elementary school and high school… There is a permanent record today, and it’s called the Internet.
  152. When I was growing up, my parents were almost involved in various volunteer things. My dad was head of Planned Parenthood. And it was very controversial to be involved with that.
  153. When I was growing up, there was nobody in my family – not even my mother – who I could look to and be like, ‘I know you’ve never said anything homophobic.’ So, you know, you worry about people in the business who you’ve heard talk that way. Some of my heroes coming up talk recklessly like that.
  154. When I was in college at UCLA, I took a playwriting course. I was all set to be a writer. But I had to take this acting class as a theater arts major. I had to do this scene in a one-act comedy. I just said this line, and then… this laugh happened. I thought, ‘Whoa. This is a really good feeling. What have I been missing?’
  155. When I was in college, I learned to really take care of my body and figured out what works best for me and what doesn’t work for me when it comes to my nutrition. That helped so much on the field because soccer is such a fitness-oriented game.
  156. When I was in college, I wanted to be involved in things that would change the world.
  157. When I was in high school, I fell under the spell of that crazy idea that if you’re interested in the arts, you can’t be interested in science.
  158. When I was in high school, I listened to a lot of death metal bands.
  159. When I was in high school I was 250 pounds.
  160. When I was in high school I was a really huge ‘SNL’ fan. I remember the cast around the time I started watching it – Will Ferrell, Ana Gasteyer, Molly Shannon, Cheri O’Teri, Tracy Morgan. I did research to find out how people got on the show. Their bios always said they came from an improv team, so I started taking classes.
  161. When I was in high school, my mom worked at Bed, Bath and Beyond, so I was always there.
  162. When I was in Holland, the idea was, all cultures are equal and all are to be preserved. My idea was, no, all humans are equal, but not all cultures are equal.
  163. When I was in lower school, I graduated from fourth grade, and the principal gave us a summer assignment to take a 30-minute reflection period every day. And, of course, there were no cell phones at the time. She said to just think. And that’s lost. It doesn’t exist anymore. Just imagine being on a couch and just thinking.
  164. When I was in my 40s, Microsoft was my primary activity.
  165. When I was in my early twenties, parts would be written for women in their fifties, and I would get them. And now I’m in my early thirties, and I’m like, ‘Why did that 24-year-old get that part?’ I was that 24-year-old once. I can’t be upset about it; it’s the way things are.
  166. When I was in school, sport was given utmost importance. I think it’s fantastic for character building, for team playing, and I think it’s a great profile for a nation. One in every six people on Earth is an Indian, and I look forward to the day when we can compete with the heavyweights of the sporting world and do well in the medal tally.
  167. When I was in the hospital they gave me apple juice every morning, even after I told them I didn’t like it. I had to get even. One morning, I poured the apple juice into the specimen tube. The nurse held it up and said, ‘It’s a little cloudy.’ I took the tube from her and said, ‘Let me run it through again,’ and drank it. The nurse fainted.
  168. When I was in theater I was forever trying to inhabit a space which puts yourself under the microscope as an actor and your personality and your take on life, but actually through another portal of a character.
  169. When I was into my 30s, I became increasingly depressed by rejection letters. I had had the feeling that by the time I was 30, I would be established. But I was not at all. By the time of ‘Lives of Girls and Women,’ I was into my 40s and I had become more thin-skinned.
  170. When I was involved in the initial creation of the Department of Homeland Security, we were given a clear twofold mission. The first part of the mission was to secure our borders. The second was to maintain the free and efficient flow of commerce and people.
  171. When I was kid, I remember playing ‘Vogue’ by Madonna over and over and over again. And ah, you know, something about the beat was really cool, and Madonna, visually, was on TV all the time and I thought she was just so beautiful.
  172. When I was little… I didn’t relate to princesses. I saw Maleficent, and I just thought she was so – she was so elegant.
  173. When I was little, I saw the play ‘Les Miserables’ on Broadway, I thought it was the most amazing thing I have ever seen.
  174. When I was little, I thought everyone in the world liked to read because it was so fun. But then I realised that was not exactly true. I want other kids to read and write more all over the world, because it helps them to understand things better.
  175. When I was little, I used to watch Disney movies all the time, and it drove me crazy that Cinderella’s tights wouldn’t gather at her ankle when her foot bent, so I kept trying to make sure that I didn’t get those little creases on my ankle because Cinderella didn’t have them.
  176. When I was little, my parents really only wanted me to be a scientist or a doctor; they had never even heard of law school. I think even these days if you were to tell your mother you want to be a fashion designer, or an artist or a writer, a lot of Asian parents would be alarmed because they don’t think that’s a secure career.
  177. When I was living in the projects, I had a mop stick for my horse. I wanted to be Gene Autry or Roy Rogers, so I would ride my mop through the projects.
  178. When I was on a major label I felt obliged to say yes to every interview, tour and whatever else. The label is always telling you, ‘This ain’t going to last,’ so I worked myself half to death. I learnt from that and I like to pace myself now.
  179. When I was on the ’70s Show,’ I had that and I had ‘Punk’d’ and I had my own production company. That pretty much sealed up all my time.
  180. When I was out promoting ‘Selma,’ I became aware of so many other films that ought to be getting distribution. And this is a problem I can do something about because of my experience.
  181. When I was planning LearnVest, everyone told me I had to talk to Ann Kaplan, one of the first female partners at Goldman Sachs. Within five minutes of our meeting, she totally got the idea – and by the time I left, she was a seed investor.
  182. When I was playing before I retired, I never really understood the appreciation and the respect that people gave me. People had treated me like a god or something, and that was very embarrassing.
  183. When I was producing on my own, I was doing it in order to – in a very patriarchal entertainment industry, let alone planet – very much hell-bent on trying to prove to myself, if nothing else, that I could do it as a woman.
  184. When I was really little, I wanted to be a wrestler so I could be like the girls I looked up to. My brother then told me that ‘You don’t want to be like your idols; you want to grow up and be better than them.’ To this day, that’s the best piece of advice I’ve ever gotten.
  185. When I was really little, I was on a Pop Warner squad. I did it for a year. My dad was a Pop Warner football coach. I did it because my best friend was also on this cheer squad, and of course I looked up to my sister who was a cheerleader, so I wanted to cheer.
  186. When I was really young, I was convinced I wanted to be a visual artist. I would paint and draw and make crafts.
  187. When I was really young, the women’s national team wasn’t on a grand media stage, so my role models were male basketball and male American football players.
  188. When I was saying, ‘White people go to hell,’ I never had trouble finding a publisher. But when I say, ‘Black and white unite and fight, destroy capitalism,’ then you suddenly become unreasonable.
  189. When I was seven years old, I fell in love with a series published by Bobbs-Merrill called ‘The Childhood of Famous Americans.’ In it, historical figures like Clara Barton, Nancy Hanks, Elias Howe, Patrick Henry, and dozens more came to life for me as children.
  190. When I was shopping around trying to get signed, I made it a point to say, ‘This is who I am.’ I dress the way I normally dress, and I just wanted to find a label that would accept me for that.
  191. When I was sixteen, I was an absolutely romantic guy. I fell in love every week. I mean, I was in love with everybody, but unfortunately, nobody was in love with me.
  192. When I was starting out in this business, that was the norm. You did it all. You looked around, and entertainers could dance, sing, play the piano, act, make you laugh.
  193. When I was starting out, William Goldman took me under his wing, and he’s still the person I show pages to.
  194. When I was starting, there were wool mills in the U.S. that could make you anything. The U.S. used to produce the most beautiful cotton denim in the world. Now all that is gone.
  195. When I was super young, I had an Atari and used to play ‘Space Invaders.’ Then I fell in love with ‘Mario Bros.,’ ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ and ‘Yoshi’ on Super Nintendo. I was quite a bit of a gamer as a kid when I think about it.
  196. When I was ten, I won the horseshoe-throwing contest at summer camp. I was also the Wiffle ball champion in my town.
  197. When I was under house arrest, it was the BBC that spoke to me – I listened.
  198. When I was very young, I started trying to sing like the great tenor Mario Lanza; my family used to play his records. We all learn best by imitating others.
  199. When I was with Andy Warhol, I thought, ‘God, his wig looks cheaper than mine!’
  200. When I was with the Labor Party, I’d get into trouble because the party bosses determined that some of what I wrote, or proposed to write about, wasn’t conducive to their policies or to electoral success.
  201. When I was working at Trio, I was pitched ‘Queer Eye for the Straight Guy’ and I knew, whoever gets this, this is a game changer. When I started at Bravo in 2005, it was a hit, and Season 1 of ‘Project Runway’ was in postproduction.
  202. When I was working, there was no digital. We actually worked; we used Polaroids.
  203. When I was working upon the ABC books, I wanted to show different ways that mainstream comics could viably have gone, that they didn’t have to follow ‘Watchmen’ and the other 1980s books down this relentlessly dark route. It was never my intention to start a trend for darkness. I’m not a particularly dark individual.
  204. When I was writing ‘Kitchen Confidential,’ I was in my 40s, I had never paid rent on time, I was 10 years behind on my taxes, I had never owned my own furniture or a car.
  205. When I was writing the Destiny’s Child songs, it was a big thing to be that young and taking control. And the label at the time didn’t know that we were going to be that successful, so they gave us all control. And I got used to it.
  206. When I was young, I admired clever people. Now that I am old, I admire kind people.
  207. When I was young, I could not imagine being old. My mother said, and the doctor confirmed, that I had an unusual amount of energy; and it followed me into young adulthood.
  208. When I was young, I had no choice as to what I was eating.
  209. When I was young, I had to learn the fundamentals of basketball. You can have all the physical ability in the world, but you still have to know the fundamentals.
  210. When I was young I lost everything.
  211. When I was young, I observed that nine out of ten things I did were failures. So I did ten times more work.
  212. When I was young I thought that money was the most important thing in life; now that I am old I know that it is.
  213. When I was younger and did a stand-up gig, it would take me two weeks to recover. Sometimes I’d get so panicked that I would stutter.
  214. When I was younger, I behaved a bit strangely sometimes – lost my temper, did silly things – but little by little, I’ve gotten better. As a chef, I think you need to do a lot of work on yourself and your temperament.
  215. When I was younger I could remember anything, whether it happened or not.
  216. When I was younger, I felt very much like, ‘Oh, I have to be a certain way, I have to look a certain way.’ You really, really don’t. That’s the way women are treated differently than men. I mean, I’ve had actors argue with me about this.
  217. When I was younger, I just thought that my plans were probably going to be more exciting than my parents’ plans or the establishment. I sort of got by on being a little bit of a rebel.
  218. When I was younger, I talked to the adults around me that I respected most about how they got where they were, and none of them plotted a course they could have predicted, so it seemed a waste of time to plan too long-term. Since then, I’ve always gone on my instincts.
  219. When I was younger I used to get my best writing done at night, but now it has to be during the day. I usually finish work at half past seven, then go back to the house to open a bottle of wine, have dinner, and then read or watch television.
  220. When I was younger, I used to hate Germany. I hated the country, the people, the language, the culture, everything! But over the years I’ve grown to really appreciate the German people.
  221. When I was younger, I used to play mind games in which I’d try to finish tasks in minutes. My favorite was when I would shower, lay out my school clothes, then devour my dinner – in 15 minutes flat.
  222. When I was younger, I was terrified to express anger because it would often kick-start a horrible reaction in the men in my life. So I bit my tongue. I was left to painstakingly deal with the aftermath of my avoidance later in life, in therapy or through the lyrics of my songs.
  223. When I was younger, I wasn’t concentrating on good days. I was managing a career and trying to have a good year. It would always ‘lead’ to something, which never leads to anything except death, where everything leads to. And then as I got older, and then I had my kids and everything, I began to appreciate a great Wednesday.
  224. When I was younger, I would go to auditions to have the opportunity to audition, which would mean another chance to get up there and try out my stuff, or try out what I learned and see how it worked with an audience, because where are you gonna get an audience?
  225. When I was younger, I’d buy a vinyl album, take it home and live with it, and I think that attachment’s largely gone for the file-sharing generation.
  226. When I was younger, it was harder for me to find a black eyeliner that would actually show up on my skin. Being a dark-skinned woman, when you find something that actually shows up on your face, you love it even more.
  227. When I was younger, my mother and I, we’d have these crazy, crazy fights. Everyone would storm out mad, and the only way that I’d be able to express myself was to write her. We would write letters back and forth for days. When I’m writing, I feel uninterrupted. I write what I’m going through and how I see it.
  228. When I was younger, my mother tried to get me an agent because I was always singing and dancing, but whenever she took me to an audition, I would just shut down.
  229. When I was younger, my sister thought it was funny to pretend to punch me in the face because my mom was concerned about my teeth falling out. They were loose for a long time, and she knocked out my teeth.
  230. When I was younger, studying classical music, I really had to put in the time. Three hours a day is not even nice – you have to put in six.
  231. When I watch ‘Mad Men’ and I see the patronising attitudes to women that are so shocking for all of us to watch now, I feel that I’ve lived and see the same evolution in this regard around disability.
  232. When I watch my kids, and I see the primal level at which the sibling relationships are formed, then I completely understand what these unresolved adult sibling problems are based on. You know, ‘Mom liked you better’ and, ‘You got your own room and I didn’t.’
  233. When I went to acting school, the kids that got the best grades were the kids that could cry on cue. But it didn’t really translate into careers for any of them, because the external is the easy part.
  234. When I went to college, it became more of a hobby, and that’s when I think I got the realest music education. It wasn’t something that I had to do. It wasn’t an obligation.
  235. When I went to New York to try and make it, I never thought it wouldn’t happen.
  236. When I went to prep school in New York City, I had to ride the subway and learned how to do homework on the train. I can work and read through anything.
  237. When I went to university, I finally got exposed to European films, and they had a strong impact on me. I felt those films had a lot of things to say that weren’t getting expressed in the films I was used to seeing.
  238. When I won the Golden Gloves in 1960, that made me realize I had a chance. And when I won at the Olympics, that sealed it: I was the champ.
  239. When I worked on a magazine, I learned that there are many, many writers writing that can’t write at all; and they keep on writing all the cliches and bromides and 1890 plots, and poems about Spring and poems about Love, and poems they think are modern because they are done in slang or staccato style, or written with all the ‘i’s’ small.
  240. When I write, I can shake off all my cares.
  241. When I write, I like squeezing as many words as possible into each bar – I’ve listened to the Fugees and Lauryn Hill for as long as I can remember, so probably a big chunk of it subconsciously comes from that.
  242. When I write, I tend to twist my hair. Something for my small mind to do, I guess.
  243. When I write short fiction or novellas, I like to leave a hint of the fantastic, of the unreal. If you write a completely fantastic novel with ghosts and everything, the effect is less powerful than if you portray an absolutely realistic situation and, in the middle of this, you put a layer of fantasy, of mystery.
  244. When I write something, every word of it is meant. I can’t say it enough.
  245. When I write something, I want the best director to direct it. And that’s not going to be me. So when David Fincher comes along and wants to direct ‘The Social Network,’ when Bennett Miller comes along and wants to direct ‘Moneyball,’ or when Danny Boyle wants to direct ‘Jobs’? Hallelujah. I want them directing it.
  246. When I write, when I’m going hot, I don’t want to write more than four hours in a row. After that, you’re pushing it.
  247. When I wrote my first blog, I got one response. Now, I sometimes get as many as 400 responses for my posts.
  248. When I wrote ‘The Rozabal Line,’ I had no preconceived notions of what a commercial bestseller should be. I have always viewed ‘The Rozabal Line’ as my first love and probably my best work. The fact, however, is that it is my least read work.
  249. When I wrote ‘The West Wing,’ the juice behind it was that in popular culture, our leaders in government are generally portrayed as Machiavellian, or as idiots. I thought, well, how about writing about a group of hyper-competent people?
  250. When I’m a director, I look at myself the actor as a completely different person. It’s somebody else up there, an actor playing a role. I keep myself out of it.
  251. When I’m actually getting off the bus, I still have my gospel playing. That’s the way-to-the-game kind of music.
  252. When I’m around the kids I feel like I act the most grown-up just because you’re supposed to. And I say things, like every other day, that remind me of my own parents.
  253. When I’m asked about legacy, I say it’s too early to talk about legacy.
  254. When I’m at home, I enjoy going go-karting.
  255. When I’m back in New York – and this is a terrible thing to complain about – I eat a lot more really, really good food than perhaps I’d like to. So many of my friends are really good chefs. It’s kind of like being in the Mafia.
  256. When I’m by myself, I never play music. I have a lot of it, for a girl, but I don’t listen to it a lot. I hate picking music out; I’m not good at it.
  257. When I’m competing, I need to be strong.
  258. When I’m curious about something, I do it full on and take it as far as I go, but when I feel like I’ve really explored it, I’m OK with putting it aside and going on to something else.
  259. When I’m dancing with any woman, I immediately get rid of intimacy barriers. I just give her a big hug and crack on.
  260. When I’m dead and gone, people will know that the twenty-first century was started by Alexander McQueen.
  261. When I’m doing a book tour in the States, I’ll wake up in the room sometimes in an anonymous chain hotel, and I don’t know where I am right away. I’ll go to the window, and it doesn’t help there either, especially if you’re in an anonymous strip and it’s the usual Victoria’s Secret, Gap, Chili’s, Applebee’s.
  262. When I’m done with something, I’m done. I don’t go back and listen to and pine for my old albums, or the Lollapalooza days, or ‘Psalm 69’ selling millions of records. Maybe I’m really just getting old and mellow.
  263. When I’m home, I spend Sunday with my husband. If we’re not cooking, we travel around in our camper, stop at fast-food restaurants, and picnic. We love that stuff that will harden your arteries in a hurry.
  264. When I’m in Miami I like to go and watch basketball, the Miami Heat.
  265. When I’m in Paris, my favorite market is the Marche Raspail on the Left Bank.
  266. When I’m in the gym, I always try and pair a push and a pull motion. I’ll then follow that with a lot of shoulder stability work.
  267. When I’m inspired, I get excited because I can’t wait to see what I’ll come up with next.
  268. When I’m introduced at invited lectures at other universities, the students place a Bobo doll by the lectern. From time to time, I have been asked to autograph one. The Bobo doll has achieved stardom in psychological circles.
  269. When I’m later in the competition, I get antsy. I’m seeing everybody else go and achieve things. It’s like I’m just twiddling my thumbs.
  270. When I’m marketing a film, whether its mine or someone else’s, I work with a great deal of strategy and elbow grease until the job is done.
  271. When I’m nervous, I stutter, and I had to keep stopping and starting.
  272. When I’m not creating something, I get bored; I despair.
  273. When I’m not shooting, I like to spend time with friends and family.
  274. When I’m not the Tiger Mom, I’m a professor at Yale Law School, and if one thing is clear to me from years of teaching, it’s that there are many ways to produce fabulous kids. I have amazing students; some of them have strict parents, others have lenient parents, and many come from family situations that defy easy description.
  275. When I’m not working, I dress like a surfer. I look like I’m going to come into your house and clean your pool.
  276. When I’m not working, I get very down, but when I am working, I get very immersed in it.
  277. When I’m not working, I still love bright colors and patterns, but I choose pieces that are much more casual – I call it my lazy pinup look.
  278. When I’m not working, I would kill to have some sort of creative outlet other than, say, a coloring book. And when I’m working, I want to do all those things I was griping about – you know, make a turkey-and-cheese sandwich, put it in a zip-top bag, and stick it in a lunch box right now!
  279. When I’m off the road, my husband and I recharge our batteries. It’s a day of deep rest and connection with the spiritual, and that can be anything – going for a walk in nature, being in silence, burning incense.
  280. When I’m on stage, my interaction with the audience is something that really makes me come alive. It’s a feeling like no other. The energy of the crowd fuels something new inside.
  281. When I’m on stage the savage in me is released. It’s like going back to being a cave man. It takes me six hours to come down after a show.
  282. When I’m on the couch, I usually have the TV on and my MacBook Air nearby. And sometimes, when my ADD is really kicking in, I have my iPad too. And my iPhone. And a magazine that I haven’t gotten to. And a book under the pillow to my left.
  283. When I’m on the track, I like hearing the fans cheer me on.
  284. When I’m onstage, I’m acting.
  285. When I’m out there, you just have to react. That’s why you work on those throws. When you’re in the moment, you can’t think to yourself, ‘How do I get this to go 47 yards and be 2 yards inside the sideline?’
  286. When I’m putting a story together, I generally know the ending and a couple of the points halfway through, and I’ve got sort of an idea about the beginning, and although I do write the story one sentence at a time, when I’m thinking it up, I’m thinking it up all at once.
  287. When I’m ready to make a photograph, I think I quite obviously see in my minds eye something that is not literally there in the true meaning of the word. I’m interested in something which is built up from within, rather than just extracted from without.
  288. When I’m shooting a film, I don’t look at playback. I don’t go and do a scene and then hurry up and watch what I just did. I never look at it so I haven’t seen any of it.
  289. When I’m shooting, I don’t care who the star is. I have an actor playing a part, and I’m serving the script, not serving anyone’s career.
  290. When I’m singing, I connect the dots with notes.
  291. When I’m singing, it’s a mixture of my innocence in the projects, my mom and dad. It’s all the good and the bad, the laughs and the frowns that I went through and seen other people go through. Then you be trying to write it. Whatever’s coming out, you try and make it all cool.
  292. When I’m sitting at my drafting table in my studio, I could really be anywhere.
  293. When I’m stirring a saucepan, I don’t say to myself, ‘Now the chancellor is stirring a saucepan.’
  294. When I’m stuck for a closing to a lyric, I will drag out my last resort: overwhelming illogic.
  295. When I’m tired, I see industrial pictures. But I’ll see one every two months. If I see one every day, I’ll become an idiot.
  296. When I’m training in December, I have to eat like 6,000 calories a day to maintain my weight. It’s a bit tiring.
  297. When I’m traveling the world, I don’t ever look anymore at the geography – just enough to catch galleries and paintings.
  298. When I’m up there, and I know the show’s coming to a close, in my head I’m saying to myself, Oh man, you gotta get off and be a normal person again. That’s what I don’t like so much.
  299. When I’m wearing makeup, I choose between doing my eyes or mouth because I don’t want to look like a beauty pageant child.
  300. When I’m working, I’m insufferable because I get stuck with myself, and suddenly I become obsessive, thinking about how to make something better.
  301. When I’m working, I’m not so much disciplined as obsessive. I have this feeling that I need to clear everything away and get this down.
  302. When I’m working on something, I proceed as if no one else will ever read it.
  303. When I’m working on the scripts or working with the other actors or rehearsing with the director, and when the director is cutting the movie, and we’ve shot the scene, the director is not looking at the visual effects.
  304. When I’m writing, I write all day. Other days, I sit around thinking. Or I run around from one meeting to another, out in the world. It varies, and I like that.
  305. When I’m writing, I’m in an isolation chamber. I’m not one to think about that outside world stuff when I’m writing.
  306. When I’m writing, I’m thinking about how the songs are going to play live. Fifty bars of rap don’t translate onstage. No matter how potent the music, you lose the crowd. They want a hook; they want to sing your stuff back to you.
  307. When in doubt, don’t.
  308. When in doubt tell the truth.
  309. When introducing yourself to a new client, it is important to share:
  310. When is someone added to an advertiser’s video remarketing list?
  311. When ‘Ishaqzaade’ released, I was going through hell. It didn’t matter what I said or did, because I had lost my mother.
  312. When it all got taken away, I was becoming a young man. So I had to sacrifice to leave my family… Sleeping in my car, getting an apartment for a month and getting evicted the next month. Staying in the $25, $50 hotels.
  313. When it comes down to it, glam rock was all very amusing. At the time, it was funny, then a few years later it became sort of serious-looking and a bit foreboding.
  314. When it comes down to it, you’re playing football regardless of what offense you’re in.
  315. When it comes down to my brand, We the Best, we’re about the people and whoever is passionate and in love the way I’m in love when it comes down to the headphones I’m promoting.
  316. When it comes right down to it, developing a critical sensibility about parenting isn’t really about disapproval; it’s about honing your own sensibilities, figuring out how you want to parent.
  317. When it comes to advice, I always consult my father regarding everything, as he has seen the industry inside out, and he is the best person to guide me.
  318. When it comes to gossip, I have to readily admit men are as guilty as women.
  319. When it comes to human dignity, we cannot make compromises.
  320. When it comes to knowing what to say, to charm, I always had it.
  321. When it comes to matters of war and peace, we must not act rashly.
  322. When it comes to setting the market values, I let that stuff take care of itself. I know my value in this league, and I know the team appreciates me. I’m going to continue to make myself an indispensable part of this roster. When you do that, when your time comes up to get a contract, you usually get a contract extension.
  323. When it comes to social media, what is the “cocktail party” rule?
  324. When it comes to the New Year, I make it a point to catch my mum and dad awake before the clock strikes 12. Then, I celebrate the night with friends.
  325. When it comes to the population explosion, there are two questions on the table. One, is our population growth going to kill us all? And two, is there any ethical way to prevent that from happening?
  326. When it comes to work, I am focused. I work like a maniac.
  327. When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.
  328. When it’s wet, you’re much more tense on the steering wheel, you have to dance with the throttle and the brakes more. Each lap is a different scenario, so you’re really on the edge of your nerves. One mistake could cost you the entire race.
  329. When Jesus says you must leave your family to follow Him, he doesn’t necessarily mean physically. He means leave your dependence on them, make an emotional break with them.
  330. When Jews are sacrificed, you have to ask yourself who will be next.
  331. When knowledge is limited – it leads to folly… When knowledge exceeds a certain limit, it leads to exploitation.

  335. When life is good and we have no problems, we can almost let ourselves believe we have no need for God. But in my experience, sometimes the richest blessings come through pain and hard things.
  336. When life is too easy for us, we must beware or we may not be ready to meet the blows which sooner or later come to everyone, rich or poor.
  337. When life partner happens, I hope he is not a youth icon then because I doubt even I would be youthful then. Whether life partner is hot or not, that doesn’t matter. He has to be a nice man. He should be funny, responsible, and he should be sweet, and he should love me a lot.
  338. When Limbaugh entered the world of talk radio, the AM dial was essentially moribund. He turned it into a weapon for conservatism, and in the process, led the revolution that has ended in the disintegration of the old media monopoly.
  339. When locational information is collected, people should be given advance notice and a chance to opt out. Data should be erased as soon as its main purpose is met.
  340. When love beckons to you, follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
  341. When ‘Main Rahoon’ released, it became a hit with the youth.
  342. When man learns to understand and control his own behavior as well as he is learning to understand and control the behavior of crop plants and domestic animals, he may be justified in believing that he has become civilized.
  343. When man lives under government, he is fallen, his worth is gone, and his nature tarnished.
  344. When marrying, ask yourself this question: Do you believe that you will be able to converse well with this person into your old age? Everything else in marriage is transitory.

  346. When men are arrested without any legal basis and for political reasons, it’s merely a routine, everyday occurrence in Russia, and hardly anyone has any sympathy.
  347. When men sow the wind it is rational to expect that they will reap the whirlwind.
  348. When Mohamed Morsi was elected president of Egypt in 2012, many in the country, including me, were hopeful that he would become a democratic president for all Egyptians – not only for the Muslim Brotherhood.
  349. When more Americans prefer freebies to freedom, these great United States will become a fertile ground for tyranny.
  350. When more and more people are thrown out of work, unemployment results.
  351. When my boys were little, I’d throw so many toys at them, but they didn’t want to play with any. Then I’d give them a truck, and they would play for hours. I believe the same thing applies to a consumer – edit their choices, and they will be more intrigued.
  352. When my children were young, I was very cocky. I thought I could maintain total control.
  353. When my father died, I did not cry. When my cat died three days later, I cried a lot.
  354. When my father was born, it was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. When I was born, it was Lithuania. When I left, it was Hungary. It is difficult to say where I come from.
  355. When my first daughter was born, my husband held her in his hands and said, ‘My God, she’s so beautiful.’ I unwrapped the baby from her blankets. She was average size, with long thin fingers and a random assortment of toes. Her eyes were close set, and she had her father’s hooked nose. It looked better on him.
  356. When my first novel was published, I went in great excitement round bookshops in central London to see if they had stocked it.
  357. When my friends in college had crushes, I used to think something is wrong with them. I just chill out.
  358. When my friends talk about childhood, I’ve never heard of any cartoons or TV they remember. The only thing we share is Michael Jackson. That’s how far his music travelled – to a remote village on the other side of the world.
  359. When my kids wanted to give up on things, I wouldn’t let them, and those are lifelong lessons.
  360. When my kids were growing up, I wanted their teachers to teach them science, reading, math and history. I also wanted them to care about my kids. But I did not want my children’s public school teachers teaching them religion. That was my job as a parent and the job of our church, Sunday school, and youth group.
  361. When my mom turned 91, I wanted to use the time that we have left in our lives to get to know each other as adults.
  362. When my mother got home from work, she would take me to the movies. It was her way of getting out, and she would take me with her. I’d go home and act all the parts. It had a tremendous influence on my becoming an actor.
  363. When my mother had four girls, and she could tell her marriage was falling apart, she went back to college and got her degree in music and education.
  364. When my mother read ‘The Joy Luck Club’, she was always complaining to me how she had to tell her friends that, no, she was not the mother or any of the mothers in the book.
  365. When my parents were paying for my sport, it wasn’t just me out on the ice. Pretty much every dollar my mom made teaching went into my skating.
  366. When my record comes on, you know that’s a DJ Khaled record. That’s my formula, and the people love it.
  367. When my son was murdered, people asked me how I felt about God and what had happened to my son. I said, ‘No, you can’t go there. You have to understand that there is a devil, and he works 24/7. Whoever murdered our son was with the devil.’
  368. When nature has work to be done, she creates a genius to do it.
  369. When Nirvana became popular, you could very easily slip and get lost during that storm. I fortunately had really heavy anchors – old friends, family.
  370. When nobody read, dyslexia wasn’t a problem. When most people had to hunt, a minor genetic variation in your ability to focus attention was hardly a problem, and may even have been an advantage. When most people have to make it through high school, the same variation can become a genuinely life-altering disease.
  371. When one does away with oneself one does the most estimable thing possible: one thereby almost deserves to live.
  372. When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.
  373. When one door is closed, don’t you know, another is open.
  374. When one has a great deal to put into it a day has a hundred pockets.
  375. When one has finished building one’s house, one suddenly realizes that in the process one has learned something that one really needed to know in the worst way – before one began.
  376. When one has not had a good father, one must create one.
  377. When one has the feeling of dislike for evil, when one feels tranquil, one finds pleasure in listening to good teachings; when one has these feelings and appreciates them, one is free of fear.
  378. When one’s expectations are reduced to zero, one really appreciates everything one does have.
  379. When optimizing for the Display Network, a clear call–to–action (CTA) in the ad text is important in order to:
  380. When optimizing your campaign, you can get ideas for negative keyword and placement exclusions lists through which AdWords tool?
  381. When other little girls wanted to be ballet dancers I kind of wanted to be a vampire.
  382. When parents are confident that their children will live, they have fewer of them. They invest more in each child’s food, health and education.
  383. When Pat Robertson says there is no constitutional doctrine of separation of church and state, I say he is wrong.
  384. When Paul Allen and I started Microsoft over 30 years ago, we had big dreams about software. We had dreams about the impact it could have.
  385. When ‘Paul’s Boutique’ came out, I was one of the fans that didn’t get it.
  386. When people are bewildered they tend to become credulous.
  387. When people are desperate or wealthy, they turn to socialism; only when they have no other alternative do they embrace the free market. After all, lies about guaranteed security are far more seductive than lectures about personal responsibility.
  388. When people are laughing, they’re generally not killing one another.
  389. When people are taken out of their depths they lose their heads, no matter how charming a bluff they may put up.
  390. When people are told to ‘eat many small meals,’ what they may actually hear is ‘eat all the time,’ making them likely to respond with some degree of compulsive overeating. It’s no coincidence, I think, that obesity rates began rising rapidly in the 1980s more or less in tandem with this widespread endorsement of more frequent meals.
  391. When people ask me if I’m liberal or conservative, I say, ‘Yeah.’ I’m both of them. To be a liberal means to be open-minded and generous and open to new ideas. And to be conservative means to hold onto things that are important, things that shouldn’t be cast aside.
  392. When people ask me, ‘What do you do for fun?’ – it’s my family. That’s it.
  393. When people ask me who I’d want to have dinner with, dead or alive, I always say, ‘John Lennon.’ I just feel that he was an artist who was, in his own way, committed to wholeness and authenticity in a not dissimilar way that I am years later.
  394. When people ask where I studied to be an ambassador, I say my neighborhood and my school. I’ve tried to tell my kids that you don’t wait until you’re in high school or college to start dealing with problems of people being different. The younger you start, the better.
  395. When people come to a concert, they wanna hear the hits, the big radio songs, and they wanna hear them how they’re used to hearing them. I like playing them how they were recorded.
  396. When people discuss the 1960s and the great Civil Rights Era, they often speak in romantic terms as if there wasn’t immense work put in, and as if there wasn’t immense sacrifice that took place. But none of those battles were easily fought and won; there were sustained movements behind them.
  397. When people do not respect us we are sharply offended; yet in his private heart no man much respects himself.
  398. When people flirt with despair about the future, they are less likely to take the actions necessary to safeguard it, focusing instead on the short-term.
  399. When people get married because they think it’s a long-time love affair, they’ll be divorced very soon, because all love affairs end in disappointment. But marriage is a recognition of a spiritual identity.
  400. When people get taken over by the ego to such an extent, there is nothing else in their mind except the ego. They can no longer feel or sense their humanity – what they share with other human beings, or even with other life forms on the planet. They are so identified with concepts in their minds that other human beings become concepts as well.
  401. When people laugh at Mickey Mouse, it’s because he’s so human; and that is the secret of his popularity.
  402. When people say, ‘You run like a girl; you play like a girl,’ it’s not what it used to be. That shouldn’t be negative. You should be proud to play like a girl.
  403. When people search for your client’s watch repair business, they use very specific terms like “vintage watch repairs”. To show your ads for these searches, you’ll want to use:
  404. When people show me clothing that seems very, very feminine, it’s hard for me to embrace that, because it just doesn’t feel like me.
  405. When people speak to you about a preventive war, you tell them to go and fight it. After my experience, I have come to hate war.
  406. When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen.
  407. When people talked about protecting their privacy when I was growing up, they were talking about protecting it from the government. They talked about unreasonable searches and seizures, about keeping the government out of their bedrooms.
  408. When people tell me they are going to go scrapbooking, I say, ‘Why don’t you make it yourself.’ It’s like chocolate-chip cookies. People buy the cookie-dough roll and slice it, and then they lay it on a cookie sheet. That’s not making chocolate-chip cookies.
  409. When picking a keyword to focus on for a new piece of content, which metric should you prioritize?
  410. When planning a campaign, the first thing an advertiser thinks about should be:
  411. When poor people get involved in a long conflict, such as a strike or a civil rights drive, and the pressure increases each day, there is a deep need for spiritual advice. Without it, we see families crumble, leadership weaken, and hard workers grow tired.
  412. When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man’s concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.
  413. When preparing to submit a new data feed, you should:
  414. When punk really started to happen, it was a reaction against the disco craze of the time.
  415. When push comes to shove, baseball is one of my favorite things in the world.

  417. When referring to the critical rendering path in site performance, a critical resource is:
  418. When resetting a password in AdWords, what should a user keep in mind?
  419. When resources become skimpy, human beings don’t suddenly cooperate to conserve what’s left. They fight to the last scrap for possession of a diminishing resource.
  420. When restraint and courtesy are added to strength, the latter becomes irresistible.
  421. When reviewing her display campaign, Gina sees that her clickthrough rate is higher on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Which feature could help her be more efficient with her advertising during this time?
  422. When reviewing the Search terms report for one of your client’s campaigns, you notice several terms that aren’t relevant to what they’re advertising. How can you use this information when refining the campaign’s keywords?
  423. When reviewing your client’s Search Network campaign, you notice that the ads in one of the ad groups have a low average position. Which flexible bid strategy should you use to help improve the position of these ads?
  424. When searching for keywords, which tool would you NOT use:
  425. When sermons start where people live – their questions, struggles, and concerns – and then offer a timely and helpful word from the Scriptures, people are more interested in hearing what else the Scriptures have to say.
  426. When setting up a campaign, you can use Display Planner to get an idea of the budget and bids you should set based on your:
  427. When setting up a Search Network campaign for a client, you want to maximize the number of clicks her ads can get. Which bidding strategy should you use to achieve this goal?

  431. When should you use manual tagging?
  432. When sitelinks are set at both the campaign and ad group level, which will be displayed?
  433. When solving problems, dig at the roots instead of just hacking at the leaves.
  434. When some people get angry, they turn into victims, but when I get angry, I turn to action.
  435. When somebody challenges you, fight back. Be brutal, be tough.
  436. When someone clicks your ad, the actual amount you’re charged will be:
  437. When someone goes to watch my film in the theatre, they won’t remember the last four articles they read about me. Instead, they will think about the last film I did.
  438. When someone is impatient and says, ‘I haven’t got all day,’ I always wonder, How can that be? How can you not have all day?
  439. When someone says that I’m angry it’s actually a compliment. I have not always been direct with my anger in my relationships, which is part of why I’d write about it in my songs because I had such fear around expressing anger as a woman.
  440. When someone says they don’t care it means they care very much.
  441. When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.
  442. When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor.
  443. When something possesses me, I go ahead and do it.
  444. When sorrows come, they come not single spies, but in battalions.
  445. When Southern people tell us they are no more responsible for the origin of slavery than we are, I acknowledge the fact. When it is said that the institution exists, and that it is very difficult to get rid of it in any satisfactory way, I can understand and appreciate the saying.
  446. When speaking of title tag character limit or length, spaces are not counted.
  447. When states like Alabama and Arizona passed some of the harshest immigration laws in history, my Attorney General took them on in court and we won.
  448. When strength is yoked with justice, where is a mightier pair than they?
  449. When taxidermy is done well it’s an amazing piece of art.
  450. When technology reaches that level of invisibility in our lives, that’s our ultimate goal. It vanishes into our lives. It says, ‘You don’t have to do the work; I’ll do the work.’
  451. When telemarketers call me now, I won’t get the blow-horn. I’m more polite than the average person.
  452. When the 14th Amendment, equal protection clause was enacted, the galleries in the Senate were segregated. Now we have integration.
  453. When the babies were very young, I found it difficult to write. I told myself each time that it would be different, I was used to it now, but with every child, for the first four months, I would accomplish nothing.
  454. When the best leader’s work is done the people say, ‘We did it ourselves.’
  455. When the children were little, I’d fly into L.A. for a specific work project, but then I’d leave again, and when I was home, I wouldn’t even read a script.
  456. When the Constitution was written, the founders had no way of anticipating the new technologies that would evolve in the coming centuries.
  457. When the culture of police departments is sometimes infused with bias or preconceived ideas against certain groups, there needs to be reform and retraining throughout. And unfortunately, we cannot rely on local departments to police themselves; we need intervention from the top.
  458. When the dog looks at you, the dog is not thinking what kind of a person you are. The dog is not judging you.
  459. When the economy goes sour, there are three different kinds of restaurants that do well: the smaller-scale neighborhood restaurants that don’t ask much of you; those that have banked enormous goodwill by offering great value during the boom; and those with proven records of excellence, a sure thing.
  460. When the gods wish to punish us they answer our prayers.
  461. When the going gets tough, America goes to the bar.
  462. When the government takes video of people in public places, the images should only be kept as long as they may reasonably be needed to investigate a crime. After a few days, if there has not been a report of a crime, they should be destroyed.
  463. When the gun lobby fights gun-control legislation, its logic is clear: it does not like laws that prevent people from owning or using guns.
  464. When the human race neglects its weaker members, when the family neglects its weakest one – it’s the first blow in a suicidal movement. I see the neglect in cities around the country, in poor white children in West Virginia and Virginia and Kentucky – in the big cities, too, for that matter.
  465. When the intensity of emotional conviction subsides, a man who is in the habit of reasoning will search for logical grounds in favour of the belief which he finds in himself.
  466. When the Internet really first started to hit, people felt this would be the death blow: after suburbs and long commutes and television and the death of the family dinner, this would be the last straw that would totally break society.
  467. When the kid goes to bed, you get a little bit of time for yourself and maybe your partner, so being delayed in that departure can be particularly frustrating.
  468. When the kids are laughing in the audience, I tear up, I’m so happy I did a nice thing.
  469. When the leaders choose to make themselves bidders at an auction of popularity, their talents, in the construction of the state, will be of no service. They will become flatterers instead of legislators; the instruments, not the guides, of the people.
  470. When the militias came to Wau, they would blast out ‘Thriller’ as they moved down the dirt streets.
  471. When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said ‘Let us pray.’ We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land.
  472. When the mood takes me, I like to be a man of action. I like to windsurf and ski, and most of all I love to ride horses. The wilder and faster the better!
  473. When the movie starts playing on TV and DVD, that’s when you really see what the movie is.
  474. When the Nobel Committee chose to honor me, the road I had chosen of my own free will became a less lonely path to follow.
  475. When the OutKast sound changed and I started producing my own records, I would mirror what I thought that character doing that music would look like. As the sound got a little wilder, freakier and funkier, so did the clothes. Then when the sound got more sophisticated, the clothes changed again.
  476. When the past no longer illuminates the future, the spirit walks in darkness.
  477. When the pastor’s up there, they do this thing called looping. They are literally riffing and spitting in the key of the organ. When looping, you’re in key, you’re in a rhythm, you’re in a pocket, and that’s where James Brown was pulling from, and so that’s where I’m pulling from. The only difference is I’m coming at it under hip-hop.
  478. When the PC was launched, people knew it was important.
  479. When the people become involved in their government, government becomes more accountable, and our society is stronger, more compassionate, and better prepared for the challenges of the future.

  481. When the president during the campaign said he was against nation building, I didn’t realize he meant our nation.
  482. When the Revolution triumphed in 1959, our island was a true Yankee colony. The United States had duped and disarmed our Liberation Army. One couldn’t speak of developed agriculture, but of immense plantations exploited on the base of manual and animal labour that in general used neither fertilizers nor machinery.
  483. When the shit hits the fan, and osama bin laden is found, when there is a snowball fight in hell, and animal control has to buy planes to catch the pigs in the sky, that’s when I might consider listening to whatever the hell it is you’re saying.
  484. When the solution is simple, God is answering.
  485. When the Soviet Union fell, optimistic scholars believed the world had shifted inexorably in the direction of free markets and liberal democracy. Instead, the West gradually embraced bigger government and weaker social bonds, creating a fragmented society in which the only thing we all belong to, as President Barack Obama puts it, is the state.
  486. When the storms of life come, if they come to me personally, to my family or to the world, I want to be strong enough to stand and be a strength to somebody else, be shelter for somebody else.

  492. When the water starts boiling it is foolish to turn off the heat.
  493. When the wedding march sounds the resolute approach, the clock no longer ticks, it tolls the hour. The figures in the aisle are no longer individuals, they symbolize the human race.
  494. When the white man governs himself, that is self-government; but when he governs himself and also governs another man, that is more than self-government – that is despotism.
  495. When there is a Palestinian state, it will absorb hundreds of thousands of refugees from Syria and Lebanon, because these states will simply expel all of these refugees.
  496. When there is a strong woman character in a story – that always grabs me.
  497. When there’s a good script, everybody circles.
  498. When there’s a status quo, usually what shakes everybody up is some sort of military confrontation, at which point we all come running and screaming to pick up the pieces.
  499. When there’s an adult person who’s scaring you, you grow up pretty quickly.
  500. When there’s so much left to do, why spend your time focusing on things you’ve already done, counting trophies or telling stories about the good old days?
  501. When there’s somebody racing side-by-side, when somebody’s right next to me and they’re pushing and we’re both tired, we’re both fatigued, I want to be able to beat them mentally.
  502. When they call the roll in the Senate, the Senators do not know whether to answer ‘Present’ or ‘Not guilty.’
  503. When things are a disappointment, try not to be so discouraged.
  504. When things cost so much, you appreciate it much more.
  505. When Thomas Edison worked late into the night on the electric light, he had to do it by gas lamp or candle. I’m sure it made the work seem that much more urgent.
  506. When those waiters ask me if I want some fresh ground pepper, I ask if they have any aged pepper.
  507. When truth is discovered by someone else, it loses something of its attractiveness.
  508. When tulip mania dies down, all that remains are pretty flowers. When bubbles burst, nothing is left but soapy residue. But the Internet revolution, for all its speculative excesses, really is changing the world.
  509. When two modules are grouped, what happens to their associated HTML?
  510. When Usenet was eclipsed by websites in the late 1990s, people from that world – many of them programmers – wanted to bring the freewheeling, amazing discussions of Usenet to the web. And thus, RSS was born.
  511. When using Chrome devtools, what should you limit the connectivity to?
  512. When using cost–per–acquisition (CPA) bidding, an advertiser bids using a maximum CPA and pays by:
  513. When virtue and modesty enlighten her charms, the lustre of a beautiful woman is brighter than the stars of heaven, and the influence of her power it is in vain to resist.
  514. When virtue is lost, benevolence appears, when benevolence is lost right conduct appears, when right conduct is lost, expedience appears. Expediency is the mere shadow of right and truth; it is the beginning of disorder.
  515. When we are born we cry that we are come to this great stage of fools.
  516. When we are in love we seem to ourselves quite different from what we were before.
  517. When we are looking for validation, that will never satisfy us. When we are looking for affection, for love, a little bit of that will be enough to be complete.
  518. When we are really honest with ourselves we must admit our lives are all that really belong to us. So it is how we use our lives that determines the kind of men we are.
  519. When we, as humans, articulate, our tongues tend to hit the back of the teeth.
  520. When we blindly adopt a religion, a political system, a literary dogma, we become automatons. We cease to grow.
  521. When we can get the incidence of HIV down enough to turn the trajectory of the pandemic, it will assume a momentum of its own in diminishing HIV.
  522. When we can’t bottle our tears up anymore, God catches every one in His bottle. God’s catching every falling tear because He won’t let us fall apart.
  523. When we choose to have an abortion, we must do so understanding the full ramifications of what we are doing. Anything less feels to me to be hypocritical, a selfish abnegation of reality and responsibility.
  524. When we create out of our experiences, as feminists of color, women of color, we have to develop those structures that will present and circulate our culture.
  525. When we deal with death, the pupils will always be fixed and dilated, which indicates that there is no longer brain activity or response.
  526. When we did ‘The Jewel In The Crown,’ we filmed in India first so the actors had an idea of what the heat was like, what it did to you – it slows you down; it’s weighty: the air that you breathe is full of humidity. You are aware of the fact that you’re not in a studio in Manchester.
  527. When we do the best that we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.
  528. When we dwell on the enormity of the Second World War and its victims, we try to absorb all those statistics of national and ethnic tragedy. But, as a result, there is a tendency to overlook the way the war changed even the survivors’ lives in ways impossible to predict.
  529. When we eat something at a restaurant, however simple it may look, there’s something in it that makes you think, ‘Well, I couldn’t quite do this from home.’
  530. When we finally came to start work on this, the joy was it was only Joel and I, we didn’t have to answer to anybody, and we didn’t have to submit a screen play or anything like that. We just wrote it and then made it.
  531. When we get a chance to take part in elections, I am ready to fight for leading positions, including in the presidential vote.
  532. When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe.
  533. When we get together and rehearse, which is always living with each other, we always talk about what would make it better, what would mean more, what would say more. So we’re always improving and growing.

  536. When we look at the situation in Ferguson, Missouri and the tragic death of Michael Brown, we are reminded of the importance of who we elect to our city councils, who sits on our local board of education committees, who we pick to represent us in Congress, in the Senate and more.
  537. When we make the show, we are always talking about how the show is really in between what we make and what the viewer thinks of it.
  538. When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways – either by losing hope and falling into self-destructive habits, or by using the challenge to find our inner strength. Thanks to the teachings of Buddha, I have been able to take this second way.
  539. When we moved to Europe when I was a teenager, I really did not want to go. I was happy in my school, with my friends, but looking back on it, it was the best experience I’ve ever had.

  542. When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained.
  543. When we say ‘less fortunate,’ we generally mean the poor rather than the disabled, who actually are less fortunate. In truth, the poor are generally ‘less fortunate’ only in terms of genetics. They are certainly not less fortunate in the amount of help they receive.
  544. When we say there’s a dearth of women directors, it’s not that there’s a lack of women who direct: it’s a lack of opportunities and access for women to direct and be supported in that.
  545. When we see a natural style, we are astonished and charmed; for we expected to see an author, and we find a person.
  546. When we see persons of worth, we should think of equaling them; when we see persons of a contrary character, we should turn inwards and examine ourselves.

  550. When we talk about chefs, we often talk about their love of food or their passion for it, but cooking is also about making a living; it’s a job.
  551. When we talk about communities, we seldom discuss the margins. But for every person nestled comfortably in the bosom of a community, there is someone else on the outskirts, feeling ambivalent. Ambiguous. Excluded. Unwilling or unable to come more fully into the fold.
  552. When we talk about mortality, we are talking about our children.
  553. When we talk about the healthcare crisis in America we’ve got to also be talking about the dental crisis and how to address it.

  559. When we turn to one another for counsel we reduce the number of our enemies.

  562. When we were discussing ‘Holby City, ‘I told the producers that I wanted the Art Malik character to be honourable, and my other requirement was that he be a Muslim, because we need Muslims on TV.
  563. When we were doing ‘The West Wing,’ the hardest thing about doing ‘The West Wing’ was being compared to yourself. You go out there and want every episode to be as good as your best episode. I wrote 88 episodes of ‘The West Wing,’ and when you do that, one of them is going to be your 88th best, so your 88th best better be pretty good.
  564. When we were growing up our parents somehow made it clear that being famous was good. And I mistakenly thought that if I was famous then everyone would love me.

  568. When we’re dealing with the people in our family – no matter how annoying or gross they may be, no matter how self-inflicted their suffering may appear, no matter how afflicted they are with ignorance, prejudice or nose hairs – we give from the deepest parts of ourselves.
  569. When we’re looking for compassion, we need someone who is deeply rooted, is able to bend and, most of all, embraces us for our strengths and struggles.

  579. When working on a period, it is the finer details that evoke imagery that helps in cinematic adaptations.
  580. When World AIDS Day was first observed in 1988, there was no truly effective treatment for what was almost always a deadly disease.

  585. When you are an actor, you have to stay inside this world, but when you are with the crew, on the outside, you are in the dirt, working through all the issues. It’s just a different way of working, and I think I preferred it.

  589. When you are authentic, you create a certain energy… people want to be around you because you are unique.
  590. When you are caught with a big shot, you don’t really feel it. It’s like being in a car crash, and maybe your arm has been ripped off… it is only when you look down at it that you realise it has happened.
  591. When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everybody will respect you.
  592. When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That’s relativity.

  601. When you are offended at any man’s fault, turn to yourself and study your own failings. Then you will forget your anger.

  603. When you are presenting yourself, confidence is very important.
  604. When you are right you cannot be too radical; when you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative.
  605. When you are shooting in a conventional way, you put nets around yourself. It’s very hard to fall and hit the ground. You can always manipulate things to make it not embarrassing. If the scene is a little bit bad, you can polish it or even take it out. You can hide your mistakes.
  606. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.
  607. When you are truly you and share who you are with the world and be confident in who you are, it doesn’t matter what size you are. It doesn’t matter what your different body parts look like.

  609. When you are winning a war almost everything that happens can be claimed to be right and wise.
  610. When you are young, you cannot imagine being disabled. You imagine you would conquer it somehow. As I’ve got older, I can imagine it; I can see how life narrows in. I feel compassion for my mother now.
  611. When you are younger, the camera is like a friend and you can go places and feel like you’re with someone, like you have a companion.
  612. When you are younger you get blamed for crimes you never committed and when you’re older you begin to get credit for virtues you never possessed. It evens itself out.
  613. When you aren’t doing too many films, people find other things to write about you.
  614. When you attack a problem as though it were solvable, even though you don’t know how to solve it, you will be shocked with what you come up with. It’s 100 times more worth it. It’s never 100 times harder.
  615. When you become president, they don’t give you a magic wand that you wave. You have to get legislation passed. You have to get agencies to run programs.

  617. When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable.
  618. When you believe in God, you’ve got to believe in the all-powerful God. He’s not just God, He’s the all-powerful God and He has total control over everyone’s life. The Devil, on the other hand, is a real character that’s trying his hardest to tear your life apart.
  619. When you build characters from the outside in, they become, oftentimes they become like ‘Saturday Night Live’ characters or they become like caricatures of the character.
  620. When you campaign and have to participate in so many debates just to the win the nomination of your party, you’ve had a lot of practice. You get to figure out as you go from one debate to another where you made your mistakes. By the time you get to the big debate you’re pretty polished.
  621. When you can score three goals without the most prolific scorer in the world, you know you have a lot of depth, and it gives you confidence.
  622. When you can whip any man in the world, you never know peace.
  623. When you can’t lend or trade – and you can’t invest with the leverage that juiced returns to support seven- and eight-figure bonuses – how exactly are you going to make money?

  626. When you cease to exist, then who will you blame?

  629. When you come into a house like Saint Laurent, or Chanel, or Lanvin, and you go into a place that existed before you were born and will exist after you die, it takes some time to get in, to get to people, and to get the energy of the place.

  633. When you dance and move around it creates a different reaction from the audience – they love it.
  634. When you dance together, there’s a fabulous interaction. It’s quite intimate. You’re touching your partner, leading them. Learning how to behave in that person’s proximity is a skill. I love it. I can’t imagine tiring of it.
  635. When you decide to follow a certain path, you should follow it to the end and not be diverted from it for personal reasons.
  636. When you decide to get involved in a military operation in a place like Syria, you’ve got to be prepared, as we learned from Iraq and Afghanistan, to become the government, and I’m not sure any country, either the United States or I don’t hear of anyone else, who’s willing to take on that responsibility.
  637. When you discriminate against anyone, you discriminate against everyone. It’s a display of terrible intolerance.
  638. When you do a film in a foreign language, you know there’s a cost in it, that you know, unfortunately, the audiences of foreign language films have not been cultivated. There’s a market, but the market has been reduced, unfortunately, and you know that when you’re making a foreign language film, you’re making a choice.
  639. When you do a play, you have all this time to rehearse and grow into the character. In television, even though you’re waiting and waiting and waiting, once you’re actually on set engaging in the scene with another actor, time is of the essence.
  640. When you do animation – well, straightforward animation, although it’s not straightforward – the voice for a character or something, they’re always singular experiences, really.
  641. When you do comedy, you can’t please the world, although I’d like to think that most of my audiences were on my side.
  642. When you do comedy, you get impervious to good and bad reviews.
  643. When you do movies, it’s you have a 3-month family and then everybody goes away and then joins another family, you know?
  644. When you do something with a lot of honesty, appetite and commitment, the input reflects in the output.
  645. When you don’t have much money, cooking can be incredibly reassuring. You feel like you’re doing meaningful work.

  647. When you doubt, abstain.
  648. When you encounter seemingly good advice that contradicts other seemingly good advice, ignore them both.
  649. When you enter a room, you have to kiss his ring. I don’t mind, but he has it in his back pocket.

  656. When you get in a job, the tendency is to say, ‘I’ve got to know it. I’ve got to give direction to others. I’m in this job because I’m better and smarter.’ I always took a different view, that the key was to identify the people who really knew and learn from them.
  657. When you get into the whole field of exploring, probably 90 percent of the kinds of organisms, plants, animals and especially microorganisms and tiny invertebrate animals are unknown. Then you realize that we live on a relatively unexplored plan.
  658. When you get into your car, shut the door and be there for just half a minute. Breathe, feel the energy inside your body, look around at the sky, the trees.

  659. When you get out of the Marine Corps, you feel like you can do anything.
  660. When you get to a place where you understand that love and belonging, your worthiness, is a birthright and not something you have to earn, anything is possible.

  664. When you give yourself, you receive more than you give.
  665. When you go back and look at American history, it’s not terribly different from Canadian history. If you weren’t self-reliant on the prairie, you wouldn’t survive.
  666. When you go into a bar, there are hundreds and hundreds of cameras in that bar – many of them installed by that bar. They might be checking something or taking a picture of you.

  669. When you go to the movie theater and the opening of this movie and you see the kids just cracking up with a character you are giving your voice to, you get goose bumps. It’s so beautiful.
  670. When you go to the Sistine Chapel with Sophia Loren, it can be quite some time before your thoughts turn to the ceiling.
  671. When you go to war as a boy, you have a great illusion of immortality. Other people get killed, not you… Then, when you are badly wounded the first time, you lose that illusion, and you know it can happen to you.

  674. When you have a dream, you’ve got to grab it and never let go.
  675. When you have a foreign invasion – in this case by the Indonesian army – writers, intellectuals, newspapers and magazines are the first targets of repression.
  676. When you have a fresh point of view that comes from the right side of the heart, it’s just so valuable. You can take it or not take it, but just that perspective can give you a lot of strength or make you reflect on a lot of things.
  677. When you have a laser focus, and you get distracted by what other people say, you can lose that laser focus.
  678. When you have a lot of money, there’s so many places you can go to manage your money. But when you don’t have money, mathematically you actually need a financial plan more. You can’t really afford to make mistakes. So why is this such a luxury product?
  679. When you have a sense of calling, whether it’s to be a musician, soloist, artist, in one of the technical fields, or a plumber, there is something deep and enriching when you realize it isn’t just a casual choice, it’s a divine calling. It’s not limited to vocational Christian service by any means.
  680. When you have an election campaign,it has to be simple and something everybody can relate to.
  681. When you have an injury, you are hindered a little bit.
  682. When you have beaten guys a few times, you don’t want them to think they know how you are going to play them. You have to try and find different ways of beating them. You have to do things they don’t expect sometimes, put something unpredictable into your game.

  688. When you have Khiladi Kumar on one side and Thalaiva on the other, you have to know your stuff well.
  689. When you have kids, you instantly feel that you do not want to do them wrong. Those dads that go off to Florida and start a new life, I couldn’t imagine that: seeing my kid once every Christmas, every three years. If I’m gone for six days it feels like too much.
  690. When you have kids, you see life through different eyes. You feel love more deeply and are maybe a little more compassionate. It’s inevitable that that would make its way into your songwriting.
  691. When you have no money in New York, you’re living in a shoebox, and it’s freezing. When you have no money in L.A., you’re living in a slightly larger shoebox, and you can go outside and feel okay about your life for a minute.

  695. When you have seen one ant, one bird, one tree, you have not seen them all.

  697. When you have something as unique and special as the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise, you want to create an experience for the fans that they can only feel and experience at Universal Parks.
  698. When you have something that is bothering you, and then you articulate, take the time to really express it and see it clearly, to recognize. To acknowledge that is already a liberating energy.
  699. When you have strict censorship of the internet, young students cannot receive a full education. Their view of the world is imbalanced. There can be no true discussion of the issues.
  700. When you have that window of opportunity called a crisis, move as quickly as you can, get as much done as you can. There’s a momentum for change that’s very compelling.
  701. When you have the facts on your side, argue the facts. When you have the law on your side, argue the law. When you have neither, holler.
  702. When you have to kill a man, it costs nothing to be polite.
  703. When you have vision it affects your attitude. Your attitude is optimistic rather than pessimistic.
  704. When you have your own identity as a singer, you don’t have competition.
  705. When you hear people demanding that the Ten Commandments be displayed in courtrooms and schoolrooms, always be sure to ask which set. It works every time.
  706. When you improvise, you work off the laughs from the audience, but when you step on stage to do standup, it’s silent.
  707. When you introduce competition into the public school system, most studies show that schools start to do better when they are competing for students.
  708. When you know a thing, to hold that you know it, and when you do not know a thing, to allow that you do not know it – this is knowledge.
  709. When you lack a certain vitality in the film business, there’s no hiding it. It’s like you’ve had your limb chopped off. How do you hide the fact that you’re missing an arm?
  710. When you listen to Ray Charles, there’s never any doubt whose voice that is.
  711. When you live in a city, as I do, where violence is really in the streets, and people die every day, there’s nothing funny about it.
  712. When you live in New York, one of two things happen – you either become a New Yorker, or you feel more like the place you came from.
  713. When you look at people who are successful, you will find that they aren’t the people who are motivated, but have consistency in their motivation.
  714. When you look at the government, when the government collects a buck, it’s not free. They have to spend resources, the IRS, audits, all this sort of crap, to collect the dollar. I’m not assuming any Laffer curve effect here at all. There are just transactions costs of collecting that money.
  715. When you look at the light bulb above you, you remember Thomas Alva Edison. When the telephone bell rings, you remember Alexander Graham Bell. Marie Curie was the first woman to win the Nobel Prize. When you see the blue sky, you think of Sir C.V. Raman.

  718. When you look what is happening in this country with the debt, the deficit, the CBO coming out and saying once again we’re going to have a trillion dollar plus deficit in 2012, the fourth straight year, and unemployment may be going back up to 8.9 or maybe nine percent by the end of the year, these are serious situations that are going.
  719. When you loot or behave violently, you give grounds to those that try to justify illegal police abuse. You become the poster child for them to say, ‘See, we have no choice but to shoot and kill, or use a chokehold, because just look at the way they behave.’
  720. When you lose a parent at ten years old, the world seems like a much scarier place. It makes complete sense to me that I took survival courses when I was a teenager and started going to war zones as a reporter. I didn’t ever want to be taken advantage of, and I wanted to be able to take care of those around me.
  721. When you lose the ability to step up and hit the ball as hard and as far as you want, that also affects your ability to will the ball to go where you want it to go, if you know what I mean.
  722. When you lose, there is a whole bunch of room for negativity and I don’t feed into this stuff and I do not do any talking. I don’t run my mouth.
  723. When you lose things like football, which is the game I love – and this is the most important thing in my life – it really puts everything in perspective.
  724. When you love and accept yourself, when you know who really cares about you, and when you learn from your mistakes, then you stop caring about what people who don’t know you think.
  725. When you make a movie, you know you’re making a long-form thing, so the visuals are different than for a video where it has to be more obvious or in your face, I think, a little bit.

  742. When you read about the lives of other people, people of different circumstances or similar circumstances, you are part of their lives for that moment.

  747. When you run an entrepreneurial business, you have hurry sickness – you don’t look back, you advance and consolidate. But it is such fun.

  750. When you see me on TV against one of the other girls, they look 10 times better than me, and I’m OK with that. I make a conscious effort not to wear that much makeup and not have my hair so perfectly groomed. That’s just not me. I’m not going to be perfect.

  806. When you’re a Chicago artist, to play Lollapalooza, that’s not a normal thing. It’s artists on a path to a certain place that do that. Chief Keef did it; Kids These Days did it; Cool Kids did it. And I’m the next Cool-Kids-Chief, if you will.

  810. When you’re a pro athlete, life is very narcissistic – everything relates back to you and how you play. When you are getting out of pro sports, you suddenly have to get a little more mindful of what’s going on around you and how you affect the rest of the world.

  814. When you’re around kids you can be a little kid yourself and pretend that life is magic and you don’t have to be one of those sweaty people going to work every day.
  815. When you’re around the kids, you feel like you act the most grown up just because you’re supposed to lead. I say things, like every other parent, that reminds you of your own parents. One thing I do know about being a parent, you understand why your father was in a bad mood a lot.

  834. When you’re from an unknown place, I think it’s hard for you to believe it’s possible. You think you have to go to L.A. or New York to make it, but I don’t think that’s true. I’m glad to be an example that you can make it from where you are. All you need is talent and hard work.
  835. When you’re in your 30s and actively pursuing a career and a home life, a wife and children, you’re busy doing as opposed to busy thinking. As you get older, even as you don’t have as much time, I think you tend to think more and reflect more on what is happening in your own life.

  838. When you’re on stage singing, you’re naked. Your voice is something very intimate, and that’s why I’m scared every time before I perform. It doesn’t matter if I’m singing for a king or a queen or the Pope, it’s enough to be in front of anybody. I suffer, but I can’t do anything about it.
  839. When you’re on the road and moving city to city, when someone isn’t there at the end of the night, you feel empty.

  843. When you’re picking up and moving, it does create… well, I can sleep anywhere, which is really useful, it turns out, on movie sets.

  850. When you’re throwing the football the way you want to, you’re not thinking about it. You’re not thinking about your drop or your release point or the trajectory or where your feet are. It’s just coming off your hand exactly the way you want it to, fluid and confident.
  851. When you’re trying to sustain a high level of intensity and panic, sometimes it actually helps to have something happen that makes you really afraid because even if in real life it wouldn’t make you that scared, to take that little bit of fear and be melodramatic about it, I guess, and convince yourself that it’s worse, can be effective.
  852. When you’re with another actor who’s also been through five hours of prosthetic makeup, and you’re eating another person’s neck, and fake blood is being spurted out at you for two minutes, it’s incredibly fun, and you’re in character for that time.

  879. Whenever I read stories of people doing huge pranks on set, all I think is, ‘These people have too much time on their hands.’ Besides, I don’t want to make some poor assistant clean up someone’s trailer after I’ve filled it with, say, Cadbury eggs. See? I can’t even think of a good prank.
  880. Whenever I say I made a record in the garage, people just assume that I have, like, a Lear jet parked in there or something. But really there’s old luggage, a couple of bikes. It’s big enough to put one minivan in. That’s it. No dartboard. I’m so not macho.
  881. Whenever I see a mirror, I just look at myself, or when I see my own reflection, I quickly take a look; I won’t lie about that. But when I am in front of the camera, it’s just the character, not me.
  882. Whenever I see a tree that is climbable, it must be climbed. Sometimes when I’m on a run, I’ll just run up a tree, jump on a branch and swing off. My favorite tree, in Saratoga, gets me a good 75 feet up.
  883. Whenever I start to really think about what I’m playing, I may play it better musically, but the feeling isn’t there.
  884. Whenever I think about movies, I always look at that art process as having the best of a lot of worlds. Because if you watch a great film, you have a musical element to it, not just on the scoring, but in the way that the shots are edited – that has music and rhythm and time.

  889. Whenever I was with Kevin Pollak, I had to leave the room.

  924. Where I come from you’re not raised to think on your own. It’s not that you’re pushed to read the Bible. The Bible is read to you.

  929. Where is instruction in relationships, in the management of career, in the raising of children, in the pursuit of friendship, in the wise approach to anxiety and death? All this sort of stuff I craved to learn about when I was a student and down to this day.
  930. Where is love exchanged? Where is the love felt when a state administrator stuffs a welfare check into an outgoing mail?
  931. Where is the justice of political power if it executes the murderer and jails the plunderer, and then itself marches upon neighboring lands, killing thousands and pillaging the very hills?
  932. Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.

  936. Where love is, there God is also.
  937. Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.

  939. Where minds differ and opinions swerve there is scant a friend in that company.

  941. Where music leads, I follow.
  942. Where patience fails, force prevails.
  943. Where sense is wanting, everything is wanting.
  944. Where the press is free and every man able to read, all is safe.
  945. Where the senses fail us, reason must step in.
  946. Where the stakes are the highest, in the war on terror, we cannot possibly succeed without extraordinary international cooperation. Effective international police actions require the highest degree of intelligence sharing, planning and collaborative enforcement.
  947. Where there is a free government, and the people make their own laws by their representatives, I see no injustice in their obliging one another to take their own paper money.

  960. Where would I be without baseball? Who am I without baseball?
  961. Where would the memoir be without bipolar writers? I mean, that’s what – that whole oversharing thing is really a very clear symptom of bipolar disorder. And I’m not saying that every, you know, I’m not accusing every memoirist of being bipolar. But I think in a way it’s kind of a gift.

  965. Wherever a man turns he can find someone who needs him.
  966. Wherever I can get a fast track, I’ll try to because I can’t stand the airport experience. If you can afford priority boarding, then do it. Nobody wants an unpleasant experience before it starts.
  967. Wherever I go, as long as I get a hot vegetable dish, I am okay. If I am in Gujarat, I have Gujarati food. If it’s Shillong, it’s northeastern.
  968. Wherever I go in the world, people all know about Scotland Street and are always asking me about what’s going to happen to the characters next.
  969. Wherever I go meeting the public… spreading a message of human values, spreading a message of harmony, is the most important thing.
  970. Wherever I look, I see signs of the commandment to honor one’s parents and nowhere of a commandment that calls for the respect of a child.
  971. Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must – at that moment – become the center of the universe.
  972. Wherever the invitation of men or your own occasions lead you, speak the very truth, as your life and conscience teach it, and cheer the waiting, fainting hearts of men with new hope and new revelation.
  973. Wherever there is danger, there lurks opportunity; whenever there is opportunity, there lurks danger. The two are inseparable. They go together.
  974. Wherever we’ve gone around the world, we’ve found quite significant gaps: the holy texts, no matter which one you turn to, has ambiguity in it around slavery. That, we knew, was being used as justification by slavers all over the world.
  975. Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally. If you want to take responsibility for your life, you must choose one of those three options, and you must choose now. Then accept the consequences.

  979. Whether a president can truly improve, or damage, an economy remains an open question.
  980. Whether ‘Avatar’ is racist is a matter for debate. Regardless of where you come down on that question, it’s undeniable that the film – like alien apartheid flick ‘District 9’, released earlier this year – is emphatically a fantasy about race.
  981. Whether football’s here or not, I will be fine. I go out, I play to win.
  982. Whether if soul did not exist time would exist or not, is a question that may fairly be asked; for if there cannot be someone to count there cannot be anything that can be counted, so that evidently there cannot be number; for number is either what has been, or what can be, counted.
  983. Whether I’m at the office, at home, or on the road, I always have a stack of books I’m looking forward to reading.
  984. Whether I’m on or off the field, I know the importance of getting enough sleep and starting the day with a wholesome breakfast like oatmeal made with milk and fruit.
  985. Whether I’m on the road or at home, I get a great deal done on elliptical machines. I use my iPad to conquer my email inbox, listen to audio books, use my Voxer Walkie Talkie app, and read through documents.
  986. Whether I’m trying to or not, I have this inherent feeling that music is uplifting; it makes you feel victorious, and that makes you feel like you can take on the world.
  987. Whether it is the old lady’s fear, or the many ghostly traditions of this place, or the crucifix itself, I do not know, but I am not feeling nearly as easy in my mind as usual.
  988. Whether it is your height, your weight or your skin, someone is going to pick on something and make fun of it. My legs were just a more obvious target.
  989. Whether it’s a relationship or what you’re wearing, or how much you weigh and what you said when you didn’t mean it, like – it’s hard to be totally under the microscope.

  993. Whether it’s the best of times or the worst of times, it’s the only time we’ve got.
  994. Whether it’s the experiments on ‘MythBusters’ or my earlier work in special effects for movies, I’ve regularly had to do things that were never done before, from designing complex motion-control rigs to figuring out how to animate chocolate.
  995. Whether it’s ‘The West Wing’ or anything else, my first thought is always, ‘What’s a good story?’
  996. Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn’t anyone who doesn’t appreciate kindness and compassion.
  997. Whether or not you agree with Ayn Rand – and I have certain issues with some of her beliefs – the woman can tell a story. I mean, the novel as an art form is just in full florid bloom in ‘Atlas Shrugged.’ It’s an unbelievable story. The characters are so compelling, and what she’s saying is mind-expanding.
  998. Whether our forebears were strangers who crossed the Atlantic or the Pacific or the Rio Grande, we are here only because this country welcomed them in and taught them that to be an American is about something more than what we look like, or what our last names are, or how we worship.
  999. Whether slavery shall go into Nebraska, or other new territories, is not a matter of exclusive concern to the people who may go there. The whole nation is interested that the best use shall be made of these territories. We want them for the homes of free white people.
  1000. Whether the work that I do shall succeed or achieve critical acclaim is for the audience to decide.
