I do hang on to things. I was so happy my father saved his army jacket. I grew up wearing that all through high school.
High school was interesting, because I went from a public school middle school to an academy where the first year we were doing Latin, chemistry, biology. I mean, I was woefully unprepared for the type of study.
I grew up in Chicago, so I've always been a Bears fan. Dad used to take me to Bears games and Cubs games. My brother used to ride me over to Lake Forest College on his Honda Supersport and we'd watch the Bears practice. I remember those guys out there as monsters - they were the biggest things I've ever seen!
I did play two years of high school football and was very short and uncoordinated but the second year I was very tall and skinny and very uncoordinated.
As far as i am concerned, i am in the knowledge that death can never extinguish the torch which i have lit in Ghana and Africa. Long after i am dead and gone, the light will continue to burn and be borne aloft, giving light and guidance to all people
The best way of learning to be an independent sovereign state is to be an independent sovereign state.
I have never acknowledged the difference between serious music and light music. There is only good music and bad music.
When you're born with a tail, you learn to go through doors fast.
I joke that I learned the essentials of storytelling from Hanna-Barbera, but I pretty much did. That kind of television is what enamored me as a kid, and that's what really got me hooked. You could say that's where it all began.
I started doing some more specific research on Wales in that period because I like the idea of being authentic to the territory, and with that came the knowledge that there was this great rebellion that was happening with the Marcher barons and conflict with the king. A lot of it wasn't documented by the English.
I started playing ball when I was a kid. My dad was a pro ball player and he passed on his knowledge to me
If Quentin Tarantino is your writer-director then you're going to learn the words and your gonna learn why they're the words. You're gonna learn why they're the best words to say.
So no one should rely on television either for their knowledge of music or for news. There's just more going on. It's an adjunct to the written word, which I think is still the most important thing.
If you want to learn about an organization, try to change it.
Experience alone does not create knowledge.
You don't go to Berkeley to become an actor. In fact, I don't think you go to any school to become an actor. You've just sort of got to go out there and act.
I had great affection for Dana Carvey, and I think we all thought, "Dana's the guy. There's the comic genius."
I did learn that there's no point in eating too much Vitamin C because it comes out of your bladder.
Real artists find answers. The knowledge of the artisan is within the confines of his skills. For example, I know a lot about lenses, about the editing room. I know what the different buttons on the camera are for. I know more or less how to use a microphone. I know all that, but that's not real knowledge. Real knowledge is knowing how to live, why we live, things like that.
Ignorance is a poison and knowledge will nourish.
You got to have style, and learn to be original.
I grew up in them streets, like everyone else but instead of pushin' drugs, I pushed knowledge of self
Hip is to know, it's a form of intelligence. To be hip is to be update and relevant. Hop is a form of movement, you can't just observe a hop, you gotta hop up and do it. Hip and hop is more than music Hip is the Knowledge, hop is the Movement. Hip and Hop is Intelligent movement
Hip is the knowledge and Hop is the movement..
To me, that's the biggest problem with hip-hop today is the fact that everyone believes that all of hip-hop is rap music, and that, when you say "hip-hop," it's synonymous with rap. That when you say "hip-hop," you should be thinking about breakdancing, graffiti art, or MCing - which is the proper name for rap - DJing, beat-boxing, language, fashion, knowledge, trade. You should be thinking about a culture when you say, "hip-hop.".
Conservative feminism is such an artificial term that doesn't mean much to me. For me conservatism means accepting reality. I acknowledge that there are differences between men and women.
I think in most jobs, you get better as you get older. You gain experience, you gain knowledge.
I was terrible at school.
As actors, we're always asked to portray and react to these extreme circumstances, otherwise it's not interesting. They are agonizing things to think about.
Boarding school is a wicked thing.
The mind is reluctant to embrace deep change, and will play devious games to maintain the status quo.
I think the education I've had as an actor I would never have had at university.
There isn't a specific person in my mind that I'd want to play. Yet.
I am a creature of the sun. I don't ever mind being in the heat.
I say what's on my mind. I go after what I want.
I have no urge to go back to college.
The only way for you to keep your mind straight is to run from those who would confuse you.
Learn to say no, so your yes has some oomph.
I think the knowledge about how legislation really affects small businesses is extremely valuable. If you haven't run a small business, then you don't have this kind of knowledge about how a regulation passed or taxes increased affects your bottom line. If you recognize that every new regulation takes that much more time to comply with, requires that many more employees, then it really gives you that foundational basis to make those decisions.
Our vision is more obstructed by what we think we know than by our lack of knowledge.
