[When I Attack A Role, Be It TV, Film Or Stage, The First Thing I Say Is, I Don't Want To Know Anything. If It's Good I Don't Want To Hear It; If It's Bad I Don't Want To Hear It. The Only Thing Either Thing Can Do Is Distract Me. I Like To Stay Focused.]

Gabriel Garcia Marquez Quotes

"Descubrí que no soy disciplinado por virtud, sino como reacción contra mi inteligencia; que parezco generoso por encubrir mi mezquindad, que me paso de prudente por mal pensado, que soy conciliador para no sucumbir a mis cóleras reprimidas, que sólo soy puntual para que no se sepa cual poco me importa el tiempo ajeno. Descubrí, en fin, que el amor no es un estado del alma sino un signo del zodiaco."

Quotes About Spiritual Healing

"Since the early 1920s a unique spiritual path has existed in Japan. This distinctly Japanese version of yoga is called Shin-shin-toitsu-do, and it combines seated meditation, moving meditation, breathing exercises, and other disciplines to help practitioners realize unification of mind and body. Besides yoga, it is a synthesis of methods, influenced by Japanese meditation, healing arts, and martial arts; along with Western psychology, medicine, and science. Shin-shin-toitsu-do is widely practiced throughout Japan, although it is almost unknown in other countries. Through its principles of mind and body coordination people have an opportunity to realize their full potential in everyday life.A remarkable man created this path, and he led an equally remarkable life. He was known in Japan as Nakamura Tempu Sensei, and this is his story." - Author: H. E. Davey

Quotes About Arbell

"Perfection of effort is not required, by the way. It is the consistency of attempting to work these tools that brings the progress. Its like anything else. If I want to tone muscle, lifting a ten-pound weight a few times every day will move me toward my goal much quicker than hoisting a fifty-pound barbell once a week. Yes, it really is true: "Slow and steady wins the race." Just try a little, every day. Youll see." - Author: Holly Mosier

Quotes About Theological God

"Faith is first of all not attachment to a body of doctrines but a process of responding in obedience and trust to Gods Word. God has given us the possibility of hearing the Word, since it was spoken in the humanity of Jesus, which we share, and since it continues to be spoken through the Holy Spirit, which dwells in us. So also theology is first of all not the study of doctrines, but a process of reflection on this response in faith. The classic definition of theology, "faith seeking understanding", remains always valid. Faith seeks to understand the one to whom it responds. It also, thereby, seeks to understand itself, and the implications of being so called and so gifted to respond. … Who, then, is qualified for theology? The theological task is implied by the very life of faith itself. Every Christian is therefore called to do theology in this sense. Every Christian must seek an understanding of his or her response to God and the implications of that response for the rest of life." - Author: Luke Timothy Johnson

Quotes About Change The World

"I never changed after that. I sought for nothing in the one great source of change which is humanity.

I was satisfied. I was filled to the brim. But I was dead. And I was changeless." - Author: Anne Rice

Quotes About Best Resolutions

"Sometimes we know the best thing to do, but fail to do it. New years resolutions are often like that. We make resolutions because we know it would be better for us to lose weight, or get fit, or spend more time with our children. The problem is that a resolution is generally easier to break than it is to keep." - Author: Peter Singer
