I couldn't wait for success so I went ahead without it.
I couldn't beat people with my strength I don't have a hard shot I'm not the quickest skater in the league. My eyes and my mind have to do most of the work.
I had spindly little ankles and growing up in Canada I couldn't skate. I was no good at any sports so was very much a pariah through those adolescent years.
Over the years I've enjoyed working for WFAN and MSG - two sports giants in the industry. There couldn't be a better fit due to the long-standing history both entities have had with NY sports.
My parents couldn't handle my energy so they enrolled me in every sport the school was offering. I didn't resent it because I loved sports and picked them up easily.
There couldn't be a society of people who didn't dream. They'd be dead in two weeks.
I suffered from post-natal depression after Rowan was born. I had a healthy beautiful baby girl and I couldn't look at her. I couldn't hold her smile at her. All I wanted was to disappear and die.
Goethe died in 1832. As you know Goethe was very active in science. In fact he did some very good scientific work in plant morphology and mineralogy. But he was quite bitter at the way in which many scientists refused to grant him a hearing because he was a poet and therefore they felt he couldn't be serious.
I think it's a terrible thing to write and not enjoy it. It's a sad thing. But of course a lot of people do work because they need to eat. And we all need to eat but that's not the only reason to work. You couldn't have paid me not to write.
When I was in Philadelphia during the Depression in 1930 or '31 I got a very sad job as a night watchman in a garage. The cars in the garage had been abandoned by their owners since they had lost their jobs and couldn't keep up the payments.
I tend to play strong characters and people just assume that I would want to play romantic comedies which I would love to do but there are other women that do it so great and they maybe couldn't do what I do play the kind of characters that I play.
The only thing I would unequivocally say is that I have never had any interest in romantic comedy I just couldn't do it. I think I'd be terrible.
Well being that at the house and being in the competition it was very hard to be with family. We couldn't have visitors out of respect for everyone else there. But being the American Idol the focus would have been on me.
It's a very complex scenario and certainly Dave was and is not the only person in Pearl Jam with personality flaws. Everybody in this band exhibits some form of neurotic behavior. And we couldn't find a balance a mutual respect for each other.
You couldn't pay me enough to be a law enforcement officer. Their job is a tough job. You have to solve people's problems you have to baby-sit people you have to always be doing this cat-and-mouse game with the bad guys. My respect for them is immense.
I'm not embarrassed about the novels I wrote when I was younger but I couldn't write them today because of my religion.
I almost got a psychology degree I almost got a philosophy degree. I kept changing it so they couldn't make me graduate. I studied anthropology and eastern religion epistomology and astronomy... I took every interesting course I could find for nine years.
I took religion much too seriously however and its overall effect was depressing. I would have really liked to discard it but somehow I couldn't.
I'm a believer. I don't go to church. I don't belong to any particular religion but I do believe in God. I couldn't write what I write about and be creative without a certain form of belief.
So I developed very early a massive inferiority complex and I've told the story often about how that inspired me later in life to get involved in other things because I couldn't out-do my brothers in sports and it's a very competitive relationship.
I hope I presented what I felt the woman seemed to be about but I couldn't give any reason as to why she remained in the relationship other than that their relationship was very special.
I couldn't have been happier with the relationship we had with Disney it couldn't have been easier.
I couldn't be in a relationship and behave like somebody else or pretend I felt something I didn't feel. And that includes saying things I thought might jeopardize the relationship.
I lived by the candlelight for two years because I couldn't afford power. It was nice and romantic at the time but if you can't afford power you're pretty broke. You endure it.
