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.
I intend to keep writing Christmas songs. There's still a lot more about Christmas that can be captured and feel like old-time Christmas. A lot of the traditions haven't been explained in song.
If you haven't got any charity in your heart you have the worst kind of heart trouble.
I can't understand why the front pages of newspapers can cover bird flu and swine flu and everybody is up in arms about that and we still haven't really woken up to the fact that so many women in sub-Saharan Africa - 60 percent of people in - infected with HIV are women.
I'd rather regret the things I've done than regret the things I haven't done.
My point was that the war was intrinsically wrong and as a result of our participation we haven't improved Australia's security but created a greater danger at home and abroad.
I think there's a tremendous split between people who've been through a war and people who haven't.
Confidence and superiority: It's the usual fundamentalist stuff: I've got the truth and you haven't.
If you wish in this world to advance your merits you're bound to enhance You must stir it and stump it and blow your own trumpet Or trust me you haven't a chance.
That's the hard part about sport: as men we haven't started to be in our prime but as athletes we are old people. I needed support. I lost trust and did stupid things.
I want to do more documentaries and travel to places I haven't been. That is where I think I can be fulfilled.
People think I'm crazy because I travel too much but I haven't been doing any of that lately because I got a little sick this year and I've tried to take care of it.
I always want to give my best and do the best I can. I know when I have sung my best and when I haven't. There can be stresses and hassles with time travel and press attention. I just have to adapt and find a way of dealing with it.
When I haven't been working I've tried to travel a lot.
My favorite time in the cycles of public life is the time when the Pope is dead and they haven't elected a new one. There's no one in the world who is infallible for those weeks. And you know I don't miss it.
Nobody sees a flower really it is so small. We haven't time and to see takes time - like to have a friend takes time.
I think people should be allowed to do anything they want. We haven't tried that for a while. Maybe this time it'll work.
To be honest I haven't seen a lot of the current crop of teen movies because there's only so much time and there's nothing that really drives me to do it.
Readers probably haven't heard much about it yet but they will. Quantum technology turns ordinary reality upside down.
Advertisers are not thinking radically enough - they look for technology to lead instead of trying the neuroscience approach and thinking about what parts of the brain haven't been activated before. These new experiences bring new capabilities to the brain.
I'm always interested in what you can do with technology that people haven't thought of doing yet.
Winning in Afghanistan is having a country that is stable enough to ensure that there is no safe haven for Al Qaida or for a militant Taliban that welcomes Al Qaida. That's really the measure of success for the United States.
I haven't strength of mind not to need a career.
You are talking to a man who can only play a plastic keyboard. Give me anything weighted and I've had it. I haven't got the strength in my fingers to push them down. So I don't get a lot of expression on the keyboard.
