A year from now you're gonna weigh more or less than what you do right now.
Who's a boy gonna talk to if not his mother?
How can people be so stupid? I marvel at that. See I think you have to work as being ignorant - and if you're gonna work at being ignorant why not work at being informed?
It's hard to do it because you gotta look people in the eye and tell 'em they're irresponsible and lazy. And who's gonna wanna do that? Because that's what poverty is ladies and gentlemen. In this country you can succeed if you get educated and work hard. Period. Period.
People say you have to work on your resentments. Yeah no I'm gonna hang onto them and they're gonna fuel my attack.
Men don't know much about women. We do know when they're happy. We know when they're crying and we know when they're pissed off. We just don't know in what order these are gonna come at us.
A big part of being in a wedding is the financial obligation and that's something that people don't really talk about but if you're asked to be in a wedding you're gonna have to fork over some cash.
With acting you wanna see if you can get into trouble without knowing how you're gonna get out of it. It's like the exact opposite of war where you need an exit strategy. When you're acting you should get all the way into trouble with no exit strategy and have the cameras rolling.
The audience is the best judge of anything. They cannot be lied to. Truth brings them closer. A moment that lags - they're gonna cough.
I don't trust Santa Barbara as far as I can spit. I am afraid that if I went back there it's possible that I could be run through their system their judicial system and wind up in some county jail where I could be killed and I'm not gonna take that chance.
I just trust people and they sense everything's gonna be alright.
Every time I go and shave I assume there's someone else on the planet shaving. So I say 'I'm gonna go shave too.'
They've also asked me now to start on another series that we're gonna do after this Frontier Earth. But it's not science fiction it's more in the Mystery and Crime division and that's another area I'm very interested in.
Don't Cry Daddy is a pretty sad song. He got to the end of it and it was just real quiet and Elvis says I'm gonna cut that someday for my daddy. And by God he did. He lived up to his word.
I always think of the live show first where the song is gonna go in the show. That's why they aren't sad songs. When I play I want to make people happy not sad. It's such a pleasure for me to do what I do and I want other people to feel some form of that pleasure too.
If you don't respect me you're not gonna get that respect back.
That's the most important thing to me - that if I'm gonna spend however long it takes to make a movie give up 14 hours a day for however many weeks or months then it's very important for me to know that I'm working with people who I respect and enjoy and that we're going for something together.
I'm not gonna say that I hate it because I really respect Usher and I was influenced by him. But so many people compare me to him and I don't think it'll ever stop. I just want to be my own artist.
Don't ever know who you may meet or just because a person may not be dressed up all fancy don't mean they're not an important person. You just don't ever know who you're gonna meet in life. So that's why I look at everybody as equal. Can't just judge. I treat everybody with respect. Every man.
Unless we do things in this country to slow down our population slow down our birth control provide better water for people provide power for people we're gonna find out that the next wars are not going to be fought over diamonds gold and political things.
George Clooney's 'Ides of March' could be the most under-appreciated movie of the year. In 20 years they're gonna go back and say 'Oh that was American politics in that time period.' I follow politics I love it and that movie is so authentic.
You know the media and politicians are always gonna be in a bit of tension with one another and probably most of the time that's healthy and indeed even creative. But it's where - it's really when news organisations are used as kind of instruments of politics that it gets tricky.
There ain't no answer. There ain't gonna be any answer. There never has been an answer. That's the answer.
I thought we were gonna open up the world of poetry and music to all kinds of things and yet I can't really think of anyone who's done anything like it since.
