What do I mean when I say I love Gale? I don’t know. I did kiss him last night, in a moment when my emotions were running so high. But I’m sure he doesn’t remember it. Does he? I hope not.

When I was born, the umbilical cord came wrapped around my neck, so when I came out, I wasn’t breathing.

With ‘Hostel II’ I thought I had a very, very strong female audience so I’m going to make a movie that’s going to appeal to them. The guys will love it, they’ll have their moments. But there’ll be a lot more male nudity in this one. I have a lot of sausage in this one!

Kids still like to laugh, kids still like the joy of learning. When you have a cool science experiment, I don’t care where you’re from.

I think we’re in this exciting moment of Internet streaming storytelling, and it’s anybody’s guess what that is or what it means. It can take on any form. That’s what’s so exciting about the time we’re in; these filmmakers are coming in and letting the story tell itself as it wants to be told.
Your peers when you’re a teenager will always be the keepers of your embarrassment and regret. It was one of life’s great injustices, that you can move on and be accomplished and happy, but the moment you see someone from high school you immediately become the person you were then, not the person you are now.
We have no future because our present is too volatile. We have only risk management. The spinning of the given moment’s scenarios. Pattern recognition.
For many years my acting came from a place of surmounting some enormous obstacle, confronting some stern and faceless judge who would condemn me to a pit of hell if I didn’t achieve the “zone,” if even for a moment. Not a particularly happy place to work from.
Malice, in its false witness, promotes its tale with so cunning a confusion, so mingles truths with falsehoods, surmises with certainties, causes of no moment with matters capital, that the accused can absolutely neither grant nor deny, plead innocen.
There is a God of awesome grace who meets his children in moments of darkness and difficulty. He is worth running to. He is worth waiting for. He brings rest when it seems like there is no rest to be found.

The person you call ‘President Obama” and I frankly refuse to call him that… at the moment, he is somebody who is kind of an ‘alleged usurper’ who is alleged to be someone who is occupying that office without constitutional warrant to do so.
Be present. I would encourage you with all my heart just to be present. Be present and open to the moment that is unfolding before you. Because, ultimately, your life is made up of moments. So don’t miss them by being lost in the past or anticipating the future.
There will be a moment of silence while our prints do the talking.
There is a Life Stream that flows to you, and this is a Stream of clarity, a Stream of wellness, a Stream of abundance – and in any moment, you are allowing it or not. What someone else does with the Stream, or not, does not have anything to do with how much of it will be left for you.
Smiling just to see the smile upon your face. These are the moments I thank God that I’m alive.

Everyday God gives us a moment in which it is possible to change everything that makes us unhappy.
You are like a candle. Imagine you are sending light out all around you. All your words, thoughts and actions are going in many directions.

For a writer, mail is not just a collection of bills and letters and offers to subscribe to Sports Illustrated.

Never for a moment allow your greatness to interfere with your goodness.
And yet, just for a moment, what almost frightening power had sounded in that cry from only a few hundred throats! Why was it that they could never shout like that about anything that mattered?

ItвЂ™s right to say that people fall in love. We donвЂ™t glide, slip, or stumble into it. Instead we tumble head first from the moment we decide to step off the edge of a cliff with someone and see whether weвЂ™ll fly together. Love might be irrational, but we make the choice to risk everything.
The greatest power you possess in life is your understanding that life gives you a fresh start any moment you choose.

We humans do not understand compassion. In each moment of our lives, we betray it. Aye, we know of its worth, yet in knowing we then attach to it a value, we guard the giving of it, believing it must be earned, TвЂ™lan Imass. Compassion is priceless in the truest sense of the wold. It must be given freely. In abundance.
We try to ‘self-medicate’ ourselves against boredom with mobile phones in any given moment of free time.
Meaning that if you live in the moment, so to speak, we play today, and tonight we’re done.

Well, they really didn’t have to worry, because the way power politics works, the World Court can’t do anything. Look, there’s one country in the world at the moment which has refused to accept World Court decision-that’s the United States. Is anybody going to do anything about it?

Our life has become so economic and practical in its orientation that, as you get older, the claims of the moment upon you are so great, you hardly know where the hell you are, or what it is you intended. You are always doing something that is required of you. Where is your bliss station? You have to try to find it.
I meditate. Like, I try. Not every day, but even if I’m not doing that meditation, the moments of my day have changed because I’m not on my phone so much. I’m intentionally not checking my phone every two seconds.
Romance makes a radiant sunrise out of every moment.
Suicide is unspeakable, and to speak it is somehow to bring it into a human, imaginable sphere, even if only in the moment of speaking. The need to tell is both a need to tell oneself and a need to be heard…. Telling and being heard are the first steps toward reconnection.

Evil is the moment when I lack the strength to be true to the Good that compels me.

There’s still such chaos in me. Still so little firmly outlined. Just like my face: a formless mass that only takes on shape through the expression of the moment. The searching for our selves is the most agonizing
Hope is willing to leave unanswered questions unanswered and unknown futures unknown. Hope makes you see God’s guiding hand not only in the gentle and pleasant moments but also in the shadows of disappointment and darkness.
I pray before everything. When I wake up, before I eat, before I perform, before I go to sleep, in the moments I need guidance.
You will begin to touch heaven, Jonathan, in the moment that you touch perfect speed. And that isnвЂ™t flying a thousand miles an hour, or a million, or flying at the speed of light. Because any number is a limit, and perfection doesnвЂ™t have limits. Perfect speed, my son, is being there.

I don’t really have a method or a technical process. I studied [Sanford] Meisner, and that’s the thing that really works for me.

I usually have a song in my head. I’m thinking music, I’m thinking lyrics. Music helps me get to those moments. The moments between the moments.

lovers find each other.
The moment of finding is always a surprise,
like meeting an old friend never before known.

There are moments in history that people should be reminded of.
At times of writing I never think what I have said before. My aim is not to be consistent with my previous statements on a given question, but to be consistent with truth as it may present itself to me at a given moment. The result has been that I have grown from truth to truth.
Freedom of speech and thought matters, especially when it is speech and thought with which we disagree. The moment the majority decides to destroy people for engaging in thought it dislikes, thought crime becomes a reality.

I reach for Prim in the twilight, clamp my hand on her leg and pull myself over to her. Her voice remains steady as she croons to Buttercup. “It’s all right, baby, it’s all right. We’ll be OK down there.” My mother wraps her arms around us. I allow myself to feel young for a moment and rest my head on her shoulder.
Happiness must be shared. Selfishness it its enemy; to make another happy is to be happy one’s self. It is quiet, most easily won in moments of solitude and reflection. It comes from within.
I still enjoy acting. I love the moment in front of the camera, but it’s all the other moments that I don’t enjoy. The ‘business’ aspect of it, the gossip. I really dislike about 99% of what I do, but I like that 1% when I’m on camera.

Most of us experience a life full of wonderful moments and difficult moments. But for many of us, even when we are most joyful, there is fear behind our joy.
I don’t know if it was a defining moment. I knew it as soon as I could comprehend the possibility of having a career. I knew very young I wanted to be a movie star. As much as I grew into love of the craft. As soon as I could speak I was auditioning and going to classes every day. It was my life.
When you have a Dancing partner, there’s always gonna be a moment where the girl’s gonna cry, Ginger didn’t do that. But, most every other girl I’ve worked with have cried because they said “aah, I can’t do it” and I have to go “Yes, you can, Shut up!” and they do do it.
Time is of your own making;
Its clock ticks in your head.

Time too stops dead.
Its clock ticks in your head.
The moment you stop thought
Time too stops dead.
One day I was teaching my class and then I had to go to the White House right after, so literally, I took my dress to school. After my classes I went into the ladies room, changed into my outfit, got into the car, went to the White House. So there are real, you know, Superman moments!
People arenвЂ™t interested in the truth, Dafar. TheyвЂ™re interested in what keeps them safe. TheyвЂ™re interested in being looked after. TheyвЂ™re interested in a tale being spun… Mighty men have moments of great despair that common people do not want to know about.
A human being tends to believe that the mood of the moment, be it troubled or blithe, peaceful or stormy, is the true, native, and permanent tenor of his existence.
Talking, texting or tweeting on your phone is the worst in any social situation. I went to a lunch during Paris Fashion Week, and I managed to steal a few moments with Lee Radziwill – who I think is perhaps the classiest woman alive – and she said this is her biggest pet peeve too. So I’m in good company.
I suppose the things you remember about someone who has died are the funny moments. Those are the ones that stand out.

We always need to remember that behind almost every great moment in history, there are heroic people doing really boring and frustrating things for a prolonged period of time.
We concluded that tomorrow is a moment of truth for the world. Many nations have voiced a commitment to peace and security, and now they must demonstrate that commitment to peace and security in the only effective way: by supporting the immediate and unconditional disarmament of Saddam Hussein.
Every moment comes to you pregnant with divine purpose . . . . Once it leaves your hands and your power to do with it as you please, it plunges into eternity, to remain forever what you made it.

Bowing is a very serious practice. You should be prepared to bow, even in your last moment. even though it is impossible to get rid of our self-centered desires, we have to do it. Our true nature wants us to.

In every phenomenon the beginning remains always the most notable moment.
A business which exists to make one man or one family rich, and whose existence is of no moment when this is achieved, is not solidly founded.

Every movie I do, I always use things that have happened in my life. Funny moments, anything. If it just sticks out I’ll write it down and use that, too, because it has to come out of you. But no one can work when they’re depressed. I don’t think I’d physically be able to do it if I were depressed.
You are taken, shaken, by moments when the improbability of our lives comes over you like a fever. Everything is remarkable, people, living, events present themselves to you with the immediacy of players in some barbarous and splendid drama that it seems we are part of. You have been given new eyes.
I don’t think there’s ever been a moment in history where that, as an artistic message, has played very well, because people in their hearts know that’s terrible and a lie.
I think we’re the only jokeless show on television. I mean really, we have no setups and no punch lines. It’s not a joke show. There are funny lines and funny moments but again the comedy is born of the human experience and awkward pauses are a great part of what it is to be human.
Who cares if you’re enlightened forever? Can you just get it in this moment, now?
Envy is a mistake that just keeps on giving. Obviously we suffer a little when some misfortune befalls us, but envy requires us to suffer all good fortune that befalls everyone we know! What a bright prospect that is-downing another quart of pickle juice every time anyone around you has a happy moment!
Be methodical if you would succeed in business, or in anything. Have a work for every moment, and mind the moment’s work. Whatever your calling, master all its bearings and details, its principles, instruments and applications. Method is essential if you would get through your work easily and with economy of time.
Happiness of heart can never be measured out and bundled up, it’s intangible. We keep running after it, grasping for it, and the heat of our running so seldom brings it closer. But now and then there may be a moment. We look at something and know it is good and beautiful. Those moments are happiness.
I relate to happiness as an ecstatic moment – something you don’t create, you encounter.

Wear a towel instead of a coat, itвЂ™s very chic. Or your husbandвЂ™s boxer shorts with a belt, or something from your grandmother. ItвЂ™s all about do-it-yourself at the moment.
There is probably no moment more appalling than that in which the tongue comes suddenly upon the ragged edge of a space from which the old familiar filling has disappeared.
