I have no way of knowing how people really feel but the vast majority of those I meet couldn't be nicer. Every once in a while someone barks at me. My New Year's resolution is not to bark back.
At one time I smoked but in 1959 I couldn't think of anything else to give up for Lent so I stopped - and I haven't had a cigarette since.
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.
I used to work in a fire hydrant factory. You couldn't park anywhere near the place.
If my kid couldn't draw I'd make sure that my kitchen magnets didn't work.
The trouble with women umpires is that I couldn't argue with one. I'd put my arms around her and give her a little kiss.
No I chose the name Jane Seymour because I was doing my first film 'Ode to Lovely War ' and one of the top agents in England spotted me dancing in the chorus. I was a singer and dancer in that movie with Maggie Smith um and he told me he couldn't sell me as Joyce Penelope Willomena Frankenburger.
The War on Drugs employs millions - politicians bureaucrats policemen and now the military - that probably couldn't find a place for their dubious talents in a free market unless they were to sell pencils from a tin cup on street corners.
It was my duty to shoot the enemy and I don't regret it. My regrets are for the people I couldn't save: Marines soldiers buddies. I'm not naive and I don't romanticize war. The worst moments of my life have come as a SEAL. But I can stand before God with a clear conscience about doing my job.
I couldn't be happier that President Bush has stood up for having served in the National Guard because I can finally put an end to all those who questioned my motives for enlisting in the Army Reserve at the height of the Vietnam War.
I guess if people couldn't profit from war I don't think there would be war.
When I saw corruption I was forced to find truth on my own. I couldn't swallow the hypocrisy.
If there were only one truth you couldn't paint a hundred canvases on the same theme.
Writing doesn't come real easy to me. I couldn't write a novel in a year. It wouldn't be readable. I don't let an editor even look at it until the second year because it would just scare them. I just have to trust that all these scraps and dead-ends will find a way.
You have to first be a writer and somebody who loves to write. If I couldn't travel I would still write.
Well I took a sabbatical. I walked away from shooting movies because I couldn't handle the travel. I'm a single parent. I had young kids and I found that keeping in touch with them from hotel rooms and airports wasn't working for me. So I stopped.
There's only one drummer. We all travel to his beat. Well I couldn't sing his song. Because for me it wasn't a truthful statement. Well Linda sang it and it was a monster for her.
You had to make a camera look like it's traveling at 300 mph but you couldn't make it actually travel at 300 mph so you had to slow everything down and build devices to do that. So you were constantly engineering.
The 'Night Train' has already been a crazy ride for me. We flew around making TV appearances and stadium announcements all over the country fueled by little more than coffee and adrenaline... so many fans jumped on board with us and I couldn't be more thankful.
I remember as a teen being able to eat more than my father. I was growing so fast and my body couldn't keep up.
I remember the first time I saw the 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' video. I will never forget that day. I just wanted to see Kurt Cobain's face. I had a feeling he was very cute. But I couldn't see his face. When I finally did see him he was even cuter than I imagined!
From a technical point of view there seemed to me to be absolutely no reason why - with the existing technology - we couldn't do very high quality audio because whereas the boom in digital graphics is ongoing the boom in digital audio has already happened.
My major was Fine Arts and Education thinking I would become an Art Teacher. I couldn't visualize myself as an art teacher thinking how it wouldn't work.
I didn't want to be the archetypal sponging brother-in-law so I didn't go into acting when I got to the States. I thought 'No I'll go to school and then I'll be an English teacher that'll be fun.' But I was horrible as a teacher. As hard as I tried I just couldn't inspire those kids to take an interest in Milton and Shakespeare and Donne.
