I like to sing ballads the way Eddie Fisher does and the way Perry Como does. But the way I'm singing now is what makes the money.
May God bless and keep you always,
May your wishes all come true,
May you always do for others
And let others do for you.
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung,
May you stay forever young.
The only questions worth asking today are whether humans are going to have any emotions tomorrow, and what the quality of life will be if the answer is no.
So hard to find my way,
Now that I'm all on my own.
I saw you just the other day,
My how you have grown,
Cast my memory back there, Lord
Sometimes I'm overcome thinking 'bout
Making love in the green grass
Behind the stadium with you
My brown eyed girl
You my brown eyed girl.
Music should never be harmless.
In art and dream may you proceed with abandon. In life may you proceed with balance and stealth.
Sometimes I get bored riding down the beautiful streets of L.A. I know it sounds crazy, but I just want to go to New York and see people suffer.
Assumptions allow the best in life to pass you by.
I write down everything I want to remember. That way, instead of spending a lot of time trying to remember what it is I wrote down, I spend the time looking for the paper I wrote it down on.
Writing about music is like dancing about architecture; it's a really stupid thing to want to do.
I love his voice (Dave) and the song writing is scary; it's phenomenal. He's the most inspirational guy out there for me now.
I check myself every day just to make sure this is the same person.
Trust in your preparation.
You know, it's cigarettes that killed (Jerry) Garcia. Everyone thinks it's heroin, but it wasn't. It was cigarettes.
No matter how close to yours another's steps have grown, in the end there is one dance you'll do alone.
Political image is like mixing cement. When it's wet, you can move it around and shape it, but at some point it hardens and there's almost nothing you can do to reshape it.
Walter F Mondale
Not everybody has to sing the melody.
Never forget what you need to remember.
I would not have known at the time, for I was too young to realize that I was supposed to have a live-in father, just as I was too young to know that I needed a race. From an improbably short span it seems that my father fell under the same spell as my mother and her parents; and for the first six years of my life, even as that spell was broken and the worlds that they thought they'd left behind reclaimed each of them, I occupied the place where their dreams had been.
Barack Hussein Obama
This land is your land, this land is my land, from California to the New York Island. From the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream's waters. This land was made for you and me.
Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves; and under a just God, can not long retain it.
You tolerate me, you really tolerate me. [Accepting his Independent Spirit Award]
