It's the same with visual arts you have some really cool wonderful striking images that make you think and then again you have wonderful striking images that just take you away from the existing world for a second. And I like the latter a bit more.
My problem was that I was blond. There were no heroes with blond hair. Robert Taylor and Henry Fonda they all had dark hair. The only one I found was Van Johnson who wasn't too cool. He was a nice homely American boy. So I created my own image. It worked.
A lot of people are obsessed with looking cool. They feel they have to look after their image.
We're always bombarded with images from magazines of what looks cool and sexy.
People see my photos and think I labor over my image and I'm this cool brooding artist. But I'm just having fun with it.
I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.
Walt put everything he knew about communication with images into the park so it was very familiar.
It's like there are all these languages available especially in terms of image. Why confine yourself to only English? There's all these languages and possibilities and concepts to speak or communicate with.
If we are to change our world view images have to change. The artist now has a very important job to do. He's not a little peripheral figure entertaining rich people he's really needed.
I have to struggle to change people's perceptions of me. I grew very frustrated with the perception that I'm this shy retiring inhibited aristocratic creature when I'm absolutely not like that at all. I think I'm much more outgoing and exuberant than my image.
I don't care what other people think as long as I am happy. The day I die or retire I have blown all my chances because I don't have the chance any more to change my image as an F1 driver.
Integrity is not a conditional word. It doesn't blow in the wind or change with the weather. It is your inner image of yourself and if you look in there and see a man who won't cheat then you know he never will.
The 'self-image' is the key to human personality and human behavior. Change the self image and you change the personality and the behavior.
Isn't life a series of images that change as they repeat themselves?
Relentless repetitive self talk is what changes our self-image.
Investors have few spare tires left. Think of the image of a car on a bumpy road to an uncertain destination that has already used up its spare tire. The cash reserves of people have been eaten up by the recent market volatility.
The image is where you have dinner at night who you're seeing. It's what car you drive and how you dress. People in the industry sell that and it creates a dream. There's nothing else.
A lot of the songs start with an image. I was sitting there playing the guitar and I pictured this old dirty green car with the window rolled down in the hot hot hot Texas heat and this beautiful woman I knew when I was a kid sitting behind the wheel looking out at me.
When I climb into my car I enter my destination into a GPS device whose spatial memory supplants my own. I have photographs to store the images I want to remember books to store knowledge and now thanks to Google I rarely have to remember anything more than the right set of search terms to access humankind's collective memory.
I take cabs if I need to get somewhere or I take car service. I don't drive I wouldn't mind riding a bike... People think that because you become an entertainer you gotta have this rock star thug image. I'm an artist man. I'm going to live like an artist.
The American Dream has run out of gas. The car has stopped. It no longer supplies the world with its images its dreams its fantasies. No more. It's over. It supplies the world with its nightmares now: the Kennedy assassination Watergate Vietnam.
I became a larger than life figure for one reason only. When you're quoted in the 'Wall Street Journal ' the 'New York Times ' constantly as the expert in the business people assume you're a lot bigger than you are. And then I had to run like hell to catch up with my own image.
I think everybody has their own way of looking at their lives as some kind of pilgrimage. Some people will see their role as a pilgrim in terms of setting up a fine family or establishing a business inheritance. Everyone's got their own definition.
Yeah I try to be the best example I can be for young girls just as far as my person goes - just to uphold a good image.
