Our whole family assembles in Chicago at Christmas and usually in Aspen in the summer.
Brits and Americans have hundreds of different phrases for the same thing. Luckily it's usually a source of amusement rather than frustration. A flashlight by any other name is still a torch. My personal favourite is 'fairy lights ' which we boringly refer to as 'Christmas lights.'
My work always tried to unite the true with the beautiful but when I had to choose one or the other I usually chose the beautiful.
If something is irrational that means it won't work. It's usually unrealistic.
The reason a lot of people do not recognize opportunity is because it usually goes around wearing overalls looking like hard work.
Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work so most people don't recognize them.
When I am cast in a movie where I feel that the woman's part is more interesting I usually start thinking about Spencer Tracy and Fred Astaire. They seem to be the most clear actors when working with women.
Vanity can easily overtake wisdom. It usually overtakes common sense.
I am usually part of any disaster at a wedding if I'm a bridesmaid which I've been lucky enough to be several times.
I have a friend that is a WWII buff and we sat and talked a lot about stuff like the war and the reasons behind it and you now it's all in the uniform. Once you're in it it usually does all the work for you.
There's no doubt that usually a president's public image is enhanced by going to war. That never did appeal to me.
Of course it's the same old story. Truth usually is the same old story.
Sex is full of lies. The body tries to tell the truth. But it's usually too battered with rules to be heard and bound with pretenses so it can hardly move. We cripple ourselves with lies.
Trust your hunches. They're usually based on facts filed away just below the conscious level.
I usually just have one cat. It is difficult but I have my one cat that he'll travel with me if it's appropriate if I'm not going overseas.
I myself believe that there will one day be time travel because when we find that something isn't forbidden by the over-arching laws of physics we usually eventually find a technological way of doing it.
I like ice hockey but it's a frustrating game to watch. It's hard to keep your eyes on both the puck and the players and too much time passes between scoring in hockey. There are usually more fights than there are points.
I try to do the right thing at the right time. They may just be little things but usually they make the difference between winning and losing.
As time goes on we get closer to that American Dream of there being a pie cut up and shared. Usually greed and selfishness prevent that and there is always one bad apple in every barrel.
I think I am too old to be doing teen movies. I am just kind of annoyed because you have all these teen movies coming out with usually either Lindsay Lohan or Hilary Duff doing four of the exact teen movies over and over again.
Friendships in childhood are usually a matter of chance whereas in adolescence they are most often a matter of choice.
It is not easy to imagine how little interested a scientist usually is in the work of any other with the possible exception of the teacher who backs him or the student who honors him.
A self-taught man usually has a poor teacher and a worse student.
When I meet successful people I ask 100 questions as to what they attribute their success to. It is usually the same: persistence hard work and hiring good people.
