Laurence Olivier said in an interview once that when he plays a tragedy he always aims for the funny parts and the other way around. Because in a comedy you look for what's serious. I think that's true. Sometimes things are really funny if you're absolutely earnest. If you're really serious it's hilarious.
Very often I don't make it through moments of recording because it is genuinely funny and absolutely ridiculous that a 60-year-old grown man is making these noises.
I have tried to know absolutely nothing about a great many things and I have succeeded fairly well.
Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.
Now do I think there has to be shared sacrifice among other nations in the world who want a stable and secure world? Absolutely there has to be. But I don't think that America can ever abdicate its leadership role in the world because of who we are and where we've come from. We are the symbol for the world for freedom and liberty.
Freedom is absolutely necessary for the progress in science and the liberal arts.
We think that forgiveness is weakness but it's absolutely not it takes a very strong person to forgive.
I had absolutely no idea how I had ballooned during my pregnancy. All I thought about was eating plenty of food to keep my baby healthy.
You have to find a balance with food in your life - you can't take out food. It can be absolutely terrifying.
Absolutely there is a connection between food and love. I always say when there's love in my heart or I'm feeling particularly good the food comes out that much better. And so I think Valentine's Day is a special day.
Fear comes from uncertainty. When we are absolutely certain whether of our worth or worthlessness we are almost impervious to fear.
I am the most well-adjusted human being I know. I started out this investigation as a very happy man with a great career. I've got the life people dream about: I am rich I am famous I've got a fabulous marriage to an absolutely spell-bindingly brilliant woman.
I'm thinking of a legacy that I can be proud of and wealth that my grandchildren can use to go to college. So world domination - in terms of providing for my family - is absolutely my goal.
The belief that there are other life forms in the universe is a matter of faith. There is not a single shred of evidence for any other life forms and in forty years of searching none has been discovered. There is absolutely no evidentiary reason to maintain this belief.
Therefore the church is not absolutely necessary as an object of faith not even for us today for then Abraham and the other prophets would not have given assent to those things which were revealed to them from God without any intervening help of the church.
So many of my friends are still trying to get record deals and I've had one for 10 years now where my only goal is to make the best music I can make. I've been very lucky. I have great faith that I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be and whatever happens is going to be absolutely right for me.
The improver of natural knowledge absolutely refuses to acknowledge authority as such. For him skepticism is the highest of duties blind faith the one unpardonable sin.
And obviously with hindsight now now knowing what went on in the company it would have been absolutely appropriate back then for us to have the chief executive of the company most senior person in the United Kingdom come and answer for the policy they were pursuing. And we ducked that and frankly that's a failure of Parliament.
I was quite able at the insignificant work I did in MI6 but absolutely dysfunctional in my domestic life. I had no experience of fatherhood. I had no example of marital bliss or the family unit.
I absolutely believe in the power of tithing and giving back. My own experience about all the blessings I've had in my life is that the more I give away the more that comes back. That is the way life works and that is the way energy works.
Find what's hot find what's just opened and then look for the worst review of the week. There is so much to learn from watching a restaurant getting absolutely panned and having a bad experience. Go and see it for yourself.
This is absolutely bizarre that we continue to subsidize highways beyond the gasoline tax airlines and we don't subsidize we don't want to subsidize a national rail system that has environmental impact.
It is absolutely imperative that we protect preserve and pass on this genetic heritage for man and every other living thing in as good a condition as we received it.
A lot of people criticize the primaries but I think they are absolutely essential to the education of the President of the United States.
