I was reading a book... 'the history of glue' - I couldn't put it down.
Before the boat docked however he confessed because he was contemplating running for president he couldn't separate from his wife. I believed him when he told me he faced a difficult choice between pursuing personal happiness and his political destiny.
One of the greatest discoveries a man makes one of his great surprises is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn't do.
In the Pentagon Papers case the government asserted in the Supreme Court that the publication of the material was a threat to national security. It turned out it was not a threat to U.S. security. But even if it had been that doesn't mean that it couldn't be published.
My house was bugged. They couldn't find any information on me being a subversive because I happen to love America I just don't like some of the things the government is doing.
Look at our Lords disciples. One denied Him one doubted Him one betrayed Him. If our Lord couldn't have perfection how are you going to have it in city government?
I found the offer of a knighthood something that I couldn't possibly accept. I found it to be somehow squalid a knighthood. There's a relationship to government about knights.
Just in general any government throughout history hasn't really wanted its people to be educated because then they couldn't control them as easily.
After I set out to refute Christianity intellectually and couldn't I came to the conclusion the Bible was true and Jesus Christ was God's Son.
And as I grew older I then auditioned for the Royal Academy of Music in London and they said well no we won't accept you because we haven't a clue - you know - of the future of a so-called 'deaf' musician. And I just couldn't quite accept that.
I couldn't wait to look at someone who shared my genes. I thought my baby was going to provide a decoder key to my past. But then I looked at Pippa and realized no she's actually the key to my future.
Just you never know what the next day is going to bring. That goes for football goes for off the field and I gave up a long time ago trying to predict the future and trying to deal with things I couldn't deal with.
You know if I started worrying about what the critics think I'd never make another comedy. You couldn't pick a less funny group than critics - you couldn't find a more bitter group of people!
I just couldn't go back to Suddenly Susan after David Strickland's suicide. I didn't see how we could make the show light and funny any more.
When I was a kid I didn't feel like I fit in because - this is really silly and I probably shouldn't say it but I didn't think anything was funny. So I used to go home and literally cry to my mom and my step-dad at the time and I didn't think anything was funny. I couldn't laugh.
The surprising thing is that I was not funny in high school. I was always jealous of the funny kids because they always got the girls. I couldn't tell a joke to save my life.
I turned down 'Some Like It Hot.' See how smart I am? I felt I couldn't bring anything funny to it. The outfit was funny. I don't need to compete with the wardrobe.
At the end of the day it's got to be a good movie it's got to be a funny movie and it's got to make people think 'Hey I couldn't have spent my time any better.'
If I studied all my life I couldn't think up half the number of funny things passed in one session of congress.
I was asked to act when I couldn't act. I was asked to sing 'Funny Face' when I couldn't sing and dance with Fred Astaire when I couldn't dance - and do all kinds of things I wasn't prepared for. Then I tried like mad to cope with it.
I didn't like England. I couldn't take the look of the place or the style of friendship. I need more intimacy from people than is considered okay there and I felt that my personality and my enthusiasms weren't understood. I had to put a big lid on myself.
I've never let producers tell me what to do. Even when I was making television I always did what I wanted to do and if I couldn't I didn't do it. It was a freedom that these days young directors starting out don't have.
I couldn't relate to kid stuff. 'Jimmy doesn't like me!' Who cares? I was worried we didn't have gas money or food. Those were my concerns.
'The Food Network' was just starting in New York and I was getting lots of attention from Mesa Grill. They had no money so if you couldn't get there by subway you couldn't be on. It wasn't like TV was something I really wanted to do - but I knew it would be great publicity for my restaurants.
