It's interesting that I had such a close relationship with my grandfather. Because your parents always judge you: they say 'You shouldn't do this you shouldn't do that.' But with your grandparents you have a feeling that you can say anything or you can do anything and they will support you. That's why you have this kind of connection.
In our family mom and dad are Longhorns our first two kids are Aggies and we're hoping our last one is a Longhorn. It gives us family fun on Thanksgiving Day.
It's hard and sometimes it's scary. It still amazes my mother. I went home for Christmas one year and there were fans all over the front lawn hoping to see me.
Don't spend time beating on a wall hoping to transform it into a door.
This generation has given up on growth. They're just hoping for survival.
Educators are still spending way too much time trying to control what kids learn bending the content to their own purposes hoping beyond hope to change - by using technology - but not change too much.
It was so draining. Going to parties to rub elbows with so-and-so and act like it's no big deal when really all I was doing was hoping I'd have the success they had.
We are still keeping as much as we can to the one million commitment that we made hoping that at a certain point in time the headwinds represented by the strength of the yen will be a little bit less strong.
The families of many athletes - incensed at the sports leagues and hoping to make games safer overall - are increasingly making the brains of players who die prematurely and suspiciously available for study. Some athletes are even making the bequest themselves.
The only thing of value I have in this life is my ability to tell a story whether in print orating writing it down or having people acting it out. That's why I'm always hoping society never collapses because the first ones to go will be entertainers.
You know what I have noticed? And this is really sad. Flying first class is less scary than flying coach. They speak to you and they're so nice to you and they want to help you and they know you want a drink before the plane takes off. And they bring it to you without asking. If you're sitting in coach and hoping for a drink good luck.
The only real security is not in owning or possessing not in demanding or expecting not in hoping even. Security in a relationship lies neither in looking back to what it was nor forward to what it might be but living in the present and accepting it as it is now.
I've never written a movie I'm not in the movie business. I go out to L.A. and I'm like everyone else wandering around in a daze hoping I see movie stars. I write the novels that the movies are based on and that feels like enough of a job for me.
Why be boring? Have some fun. Rock shows should be like movies: I don't go to a movie hoping it'll change my life.
Our son is in school now. You know he's six-and-a-half and so a big chunk of the day is taken up by school. So I'm hoping that I'll be able to certainly take him to school in the morning maybe pick him up in the afternoon and come back to work.
I was up watching Meet Joe Black at four AM. I was hoping Brad Pitt would die and he was still alive at seven forty in the morning! I actually felt sorry for once for critics.
I am hoping this is my year to have children. I understand that I am possibly more European in my views of marriage. I am not going to say I'm not going to get married but it's not my priority.
Life is too short to spend hoping that the perfectly arched eyebrow or hottest new lip shade will mask an ugly heart.
For if there is a sin against life it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life.
I think by now I have made it fairly clear that I am not very happy with the word hope. I don't believe in people just hoping.
Nor dread nor hope attend a dying animal a man awaits his end dreading and hoping all.
You can't go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do.
I'm hoping someday that some kid black or white will hit more home runs than myself. Whoever it is I'd be pulling for him.
I was kind of secretly hoping one of my kids would go out and make a million bucks. So when they put me in a home at least I'll have a window with a view.
I am hoping that I can be known as a great writer and actor some day rather than a sex symbol.
