From the time that I can remember I worked to make money - either baby-sitting or one year wrapping gifts at a department store at Christmas so I could have my own money.
Going to work for a large company is like getting on a train. Are you going sixty miles an hour or is the train going sixty miles an hour and you're just sitting still?
As a kid I grew to define what I didn't want my life to be like by sitting behind moaning women on the bus hearing them bang on about their aches and pains both real and imagined.
I am a poor student sitting at the feet of giants yearning for their wisdom and begging for lessons that might one day make me a complete artist so that if all goes well I may one day sit beside them.
I'm interested in trying to explore what I think is the truth at a given time in my life and part of the process of being honest is - in my mind - talking about the idea that you're watching a movie. You're sitting here watching a movie. And I like that. It appeals to me intellectually and also in a way I can't even explain.
I have the terrible feeling that because I am wearing a white beard and am sitting in the back of the theatre you expect me to tell you the truth about something. These are the cheap seats not Mount Sinai.
At its core 90 percent of my job is still sitting down in a room full of people and breaking stories... and that requires virtually no technology.
We moved into the back made it into a little 50s sitting room and started to sell the records. We had an immediate success. For one thing these Teddy Boys were thrilled to buy the records.
I remember one day sitting at the pool and suddenly the tears were streaming down my cheeks. Why was I so unhappy? I had success. I had security. But it wasn't enough. I was exploding inside.
I like to walk around my apartment naked. I like sitting around in the nude watching sports actually.
If I could have married my wife and been a sports writer for the past 30 years I wouldn't be sitting here - but I don't think I'd be sitting someplace where I was sorry to be sitting.
Bjorn was a different breed I threw my best material at him but he would never smile but that added to the charm when he played me and Mac. We were going nuts and losing our mind and he was sitting back like he was on a Sunday stroll.
I've covered a lot of ground geographically and emotionally and for years I lost my connection with my family. But the best comfort you can have whether you are on the phone or sitting there in the living room with them is with your parents and to me family has always meant protection. When you smile you get a smile back unconditionally.
I was so sad from losing two of my dogs and my mother. I had this vision of all these animals sitting behind bars. They had no control and were scared. That's why I got into fostering and adopting animals out.
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.
People say oh it's a shame you're not nostalgic about the '60s. Well actually it's quite good when you think of it. Wouldn't it be sad if I was sitting here wishing it back?
The first guy who came up with the concept of religion was sitting out under a tree. I'm sure of that.
There was a time when someone would get on a plane and request to move their seat just because the person sitting next to them was of a different ethnicity or religion or nationality. But I don't think my generation wants that. That's how it used to be.
Technology is such a broad kind of term it really applies to so many things from the electric light to running cars on oil. All of these different things can be called technology. I have kind of a love-hate relationship with it as I expect most people do. With the computer I spend so many hours sitting in front of a computer.
You don't repair that relationship by sitting down and talking about trust or making promises. Actually what rebuilds it is living it and doing things differently - and I think that is what is going to make the difference.
Over the last half century the television interview has given us some of TV's most heart-stopping and memorable moments. On the surface it is a simple format - two people sitting across from one another having a conversation. But underneath it is often a power struggle - a battle for the psychological advantage.
Bill Clinton sitting on Air Force One getting his hair cut while people around the country cooled their heels and waited for him became a metaphor for a populist president who had gotten drunk with the perks of his own power and was sort of you know not sensitive to what people wanted.
Regardless of Bill Clinton's politics or personal life he grew up in obscurity and was elected to the presidency - twice. Don't take that away from him because then you take it away from every other kid in America sitting out there in a school bus with a big dream.
It's like being at the kids' table at Thanksgiving - you can put your elbows on it you don't have to talk politics... no matter how old I get there's always a part of me that's sitting there.
