Mental health needs a great deal of attention. It's the final taboo and it needs to be faced and dealt with.

A. N. Wilson
I have this image in my head of me in the house I grew up in, and hearing this incredible music on the television show, going over to it, and there's Jon Hendricks, Dave Lambert, and Annie Ross. It knocked me out of my socks, and I'm still in flight.
We're the most generous country in all of the world.

You see, God helps only people who work hard. That principle is very clear.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

I say it often, that I feel like I'm just living out the Story Mode in 'Smackdown vs. RAW' that I always used to play.
Doo-wop is the true music to me, man. Doo-wop was what nurtured me and grew me into who I am, and I guess even when I was in school, the teacher probably thought I had ADD or something every day, because I'd be beating on the desks, singing like the Flamingos or the Spaniels or Clyde McPhatter or somebody.
I don't think rock 'n' roll is necessarily a young man's game.
As you know, on live TV, sometimes you don't always say things perfectly.
I enjoy doing my work, and I don't want to deal with the other things. When you enjoy doing your work so much, why deal with where to show, how to show, what to do?

I never played sports or got into the whole guy camaraderie of, like, 'I love you, man! Seniors forever!'

The road to the sacred leads through the secular.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
I use Pureology Shampoo and Conditioner, and after shampooing, I'll put the conditioner on, go watch a movie, and wash it out later. When you have black girl hair, once we wash, we've gotta do the whole press and get in the edges and everything. That's a lot of heat to go back to straight on a daily basis.
Aja Naomi King
War is chaotic and when you start having a larger scale film and you have a lot of safety protocols and choreography, I would imagine it becomes more difficult.
No, I never thought about my image. It interests me that there are people who do, that they seem to be methodical about it.
Every James Brown cut makes a party get crazy. He's the god of all music. I always play different wild remixes of his songs because people start bugging out when they realise what I'm playing.
That's what real punk is about – doing it yourself and building a community where people share ideas and share creativity.
As far as Apple goes, it was a different company every few years from the time I joined in 1984.

A. J. Buckley
The only thing that was economic, I might say, about my music career, aside from the fact that I did everybody's tax returns in the band, was the decision I made to leave the music business on economic grounds.
The actor becomes an emotional athlete. The process is painful – my personal life suffers.
The American experience influenced my understanding of individuality, basic human rights, freedom of expression and the rights and responsibilities of citizens.
Poverty is not the simple result of bad geography, bad culture, bad history. It's the result of us: of the ways that people choose to organize their societies.

I'm so blessed to have such enlightened parents. It must have been very hard to watch their able-bodied son lock himself up in his old room for most of his 20s.
A. Scott Berg

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Obamacare is a private mandate that will drive billions to the insurance industry, much like the auto insurance mandate. Hardly socialism. In fact, it was a Republican plan to begin with.

There are many aspects to directing that have a romantic place in people's minds.
The idea of elegance and aristocratic indulgence of an ocean cruise was born out of the image of the rich men and women who ruled the British Empire slowly sailing to India and the Far East while sipping gin and tonic on deck – served by men in white jackets.
God primes the pump of obligation.
A. P. Martinich
The interests of the team must always outweigh the interests of any individual, including me.
