Don’t ever criticize yourself. Don’t go around all day long thinking, ‘I’m unattractive, I’m slow, I’m not as smart as my brother.’ God wasn’t having a bad day when he made you… If you don’t love yourself in the right way, you can’t love your neighbour. You can’t be as good as you are supposed to be.
The theory seems to be that as long as a man is a failure he is one of God’s children, but that as soon as he succeeds he is taken over by the Devil.
H. L. Mencken

I am a rolling stone, never in one place for very long.
Snow and adolescence are the only problems that disappear if you ignore them long enough.
The long, forensic interview really matters.
I do believe in God. But you won’t find me visiting temples every now and then. I believe in self-realization. Peace of mind matters a lot to me. What’s the point in doing something just for the sake of it? I’d rather do something I like doing as long as I’m being true to myself.
The chief lesson I have learned in a long life is that the only way you can make a man trustworthy is to trust him; and the surest way to make him untrustworthy is to distrust him.

A soul is but the last bubble of a long fermentation in the world.
The only real power comes out of a long rifle.

We’ve come a long way from the days where there was state-enforced segregation. But we still have a way to go.

If you are poor, you are not likely to live long.
It’s not the tools that you have faith in – tools are just tools. They work, or they don’t work. It’s people you have faith in or not. Yeah, sure, I’m still optimistic I mean, I get pessimistic sometimes but not for long.

With women, I’ve got a long bamboo pole with a leather loop on the end. I slip the loop around their necks so they can’t get away or come too close. Like catching snakes.

Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.

I was working for a chef a long time ago who told me to not skip steps or be in a hurry. Success in a kitchen is more like a marathon and less like a sprint.

If our soldiers are not overburdened with money, it is not because they have a distaste for riches; if their lives are not unduly long, it is not because they are disinclined to longevity.

The lesson of history is that you do not get a sustained economic recovery as long as the financial system is in crisis.
I was 24 when I was embroiled in a high-profile lawsuit. This was 2014, long before, en masse and on social media, we said #MeToo and #TimesUp. At the time, I felt completely alone. Visceral, hateful online harassment from strangers left me paranoid and anxious for years afterward.

I learned a long time ago that reality was much weirder than anyone’s imagination.
Hunter S. Thompson
When my son was growing up, I was always guilty, no matter what I did. Make decisions and be happy with the decisions you’ve made. I tell myself, in the long run, it’s the love, the quality of relationships that you have with your family, your friends and giving back to the community that matters.

The world is like a reverse casino. In a casino, if you gamble long enough, you’re certainly going to lose. But in the real world, where the only thing you’re gambling is, say, your time or your embarrassment, then the more stuff you do, the more you give luck a chance to find you.
I always had long hair. When you lose it, you realise just how important it is to your identity.
