Maxwell Maltz Quotes

"Skill in any performance whether it be in sports in playing the piano in conversation or in selling merchandise consists not in painfully and consciously thinking out each action as it is performed but in relaxing and letting the job do itself through you. Creative performance is spontaneous and ‘natural as opposed to self-conscious and studied."

Eric Lindros Quotes

"I had great representatives looking out for my best interests and safety. They just happened to be my parents."

Armin Van Buuren Quotes

Stephen Markley Quotes

"There was so little to learn from that conversation, and yet it struck me that the very existence of the conversation itself was the lesson; art has nothing to do with Lifes fickle intentions: write what you want. Draw what you want. Perform what you can. In the end, the unexpected twists -- the mutated cells, the choked arteries, the swerving vans -- will always tell the ending."

Rinko Kikuchi Quotes

"I love New York. Im taking English lessons there for the first time. I used to live in Tokyo, but I needed something new. Im really close to my family. I miss them all the time, but we Skype a lot."

Annie Caulfield Quotes

"It takes time to see the desert; you have to keep looking at it. When youve looked long neough, you realise the blank wastes of sand and rock are teemming with life. Just as you can keep looking at a person and suddenly realise that the way you see them has completely changed: from being a stranger, theyve gradually revealed themselves as someone with a wealth of complexities and surprising subtleties that youre growing to love."

LouAnne Johnson Quotes

"I know you kids are angry, because the world isnt fair. Well, get over it, because its never going to be fair. The white boys have all the money and all the power and thats the way it is. And they arent going to give it up - to you or to me. And you cant blame them for it because if you had it, you wouldnt give it to them, either. But fighting each other isnt going to fix anything. All its going to do is let everybody go on insisting that black and Hispanic kids are ignorant and violent. Thats perfect. Its easy. If youre ignorant and violent, people who dont like you can kick you out of school or put you in jail. And its you own fault."

Method Man Quotes

"Rap is a gimmick, but Im for the hip-hop, the culture."

Quotes About Front Liners

"It was Lorraine in her nightie and Mo in his cap. Theyd just settled their brains for a long winters nap in front of the television.
