Most travel disasters turn into something else: a story of survival, a story of bravery, of heroism, sometimes villainy. You just don’t know when it starts where it’s going to go because they are unexpected events.
Turn off your email; turn off your phone; disconnect from the Internet; figure out a way to set limits so you can concentrate when you need to, and disengage when you need to. Technology is a good servant but a bad master.

Now, you lose something in your life, or you come into a conflict, and there’s gonna come a time that you’re gonna know: There was a reason for that. And at the end of your life, all the things you thought were periods, they turn out to be commas. There was never a full stop in any of it.
There are two different things: there’s grilling, and there’s barbecue. Grilling is when people say, ‘We’re going to turn up the heat, make it really hot and sear a steak, sear a burger, cook a chicken.’ Barbecue is going low and slow.
There’s no way in the world that just because women turn the number 40, they’re anything less than amazing. That’s crazy. If anything, you’re even more amazing!

Making a movie is a network of decisions that keep multiplying as you go. You leave a trail of decisions behind you, and that’s how you start to see the shape of what you’ve done. When you get far enough, you turn around and say, ‘Ha, that’s the movie.’ It’s only then that you find out if it’s going to work or not.
Some people think that you have to be the loudest voice in the room to make a difference. That is just not true. Often, the best thing we can do is turn down the volume. When the sound is quieter, you can actually hear what someone else is saying. And that can make a world of difference.
I have to say, when you make a movie, you really have no idea how it’s going to turn out as an actor. The important bit for an actor is the actual shooting of it because the minute the shoot ends, it’s got nothing to do with you anymore.
An idea can turn to dust or magic, depending on the talent that rubs against it.
I work from a deep sense of insecurity. I have the belief, and I can’t shake it, that there are endless reasons to turn the channel.

I’m working harder now than ever before. I couldn’t turn down the BBC job because I’ve never been offered the opportunity of killing three or four people on screen before!

I have to say that whatever decisions I make, I really do think that movie making is a director’s medium. They are the people that ultimately shape the film, and a director can take great material and turn it into garbage if they are not capable of making a good movie.
That’s life. Whichever way you turn, fate sticks out a foot to trip you.
People talk about ‘getting rid of the old image’, and I guess there’s some merit in that. But the truth is that people loved ‘The Wonder Years’ – I can’t turn my back on it.

Many hotels, I just sat there and – I call it the silent scream – I don’t know why, you just sit there, and tears will just come down, and you’ll just sit there for hours, man. There’s no place to turn, and when you do turn, who cares? You’re just a dumb professional wrestler.
There’s always ways of motivating yourself to higher levels. Write about it, dream about it. But after that, turn it into action. Don’t just dream.

When everyone turned away, the only person I could turn to was God within myself, and that is what I continue to rely on.
Life just doesn’t care about our aspirations, or sadness. It’s often random, and it’s often stupid and it’s often completely unexpected, and the closures and the epiphanies and revelations we end up receiving from life, begrudgingly, rarely turn out to be the ones we thought.
There are two rules I’ve always tried to live by: turn left, if you’re supposed to turn right; go through any door that you’re not supposed to enter. It’s the only way to fight your way through to any kind of authentic feeling in a world beset by fakery.
My father was the superintendent of the churches in the state of Montana. He was content in his beliefs. He befit the term ‘true Christian.’ He would turn the other cheek. He was truly a man of peace.
Modern science says: ‘The sun is the past, the earth is the present, the moon is the future.’ From an incandescent mass we have originated, and into a frozen mass we shall turn. Merciless is the law of nature, and rapidly and irresistibly we are drawn to our doom.
As a kid, I’d watch MTV and think how great it would be to have my own music videos on those shows. Now I turn on MTV and, along the bottom of the screen, it often reads, ‘Coming next… Pixie Lott.’ That’s so strange that I can’t even begin to make sense of it.
Our Congress should stay in session all summer – camp out in D.C., and turn off the AC. Put on their stuffiest powdered wigs and sweat it out, until they give in and put their John Hancocks (and their Nancy Pelosis and their John Boehners) on at least one meaningful law that no one wants to repeal.
We want to believe that we’re invulnerable, and that people who get tricked deserve it. Well, they don’t. And someday the arrogant types who mock the gullible are likely to get their turn to wear the dunce cap.

My ambition, a long time ago, was to be a film music writer. A compromise then was to be the guy who wrote songs for a band and played slide guitar. Then the singer didn’t turn up for an audition, and I was the only one who knew the words. That was it – bingo! Life took a different course.
I turn aside with a shudder of horror from this lamentable plague of functions which have no derivatives.

I turn to someone, I’m not sure, to God I think, but I never ask for anything. I would never pray to win a title; it makes no sense. I’ve never understood those who pray before a match. I simply give thanks for what I have received.
Sometimes, I have to make a point of saying to myself: ‘You know what Stace, if you don’t have a bath one day this week, it’s not going to do you any favours. If you don’t turn your phone off for the day today and say ‘no,’ you’re going to be impacted negatively.’
I think the most romantic thing you can do is just turn up. Turn up when it’s difficult for you. Travel halfway around the world or just up the road. Whatever it is, just be there.

He who exercises government by means of his virtue may be compared to the north polar star, which keeps its place and all the stars turn towards it.

One of the difficulties for me is that I’m naturally very skinny, so the problem that I have is trying to keep weight on, put weight on. I have to eat six, seven times a day, and I have to have a lot of carbohydrates to try and fatten me up so I have something to turn into muscle.
My evening really begins when I take a long, hot bath. I light a candle, and I turn on the news and try to catch up. It’s when I can breathe from the day to the night, and that means a lot to me.
I don’t have to be working every moment. Why turn something good into a hard job? It’s more special when it’s not a daily occurrence. It doesn’t cheapen it so much.

I guess when you turn off the main road, you have to be prepared to see some funny houses.
My parents being Bengali, we always had music in our house. My nani was a trained classical singer, who taught my mum, who, in turn, was my first teacher.

Ten percent of the big fish still remain. There are still some blue whales. There are still some krill in Antarctica. There are a few oysters in Chesapeake Bay.

There was a rule at Rangers, going back to the 1950s, that players needed to turn up for every training session dressed in a suit and tie. I was a teenager. You’d have been lucky to see me in a jacket even on a Sunday – it just wasn’t my style.
With drawing, I am acutely aware of creating something on a sheet of paper. It is a sensual act, which you cannot say about the act of writing. In fact, I often turn to drawing to recover from the writing.
I think that this television medium, or whatever we call it now, is a really great frontier to turn people onto music – to new music or old music. It’s a great platform where you’ve got people’s ears, and you can throw something at them. I like to use it to the fullest that I can.

I’ll always be playing shows. Even when I’m a crazy granny wearing weird old granny clothes and wandering around with dementia, I’ll still be playing. Whether anyone else will turn up is another question.

I wish I could read minds. It’s a dangerous superpower, so I’d wish for it to come with a switch where I could turn it off if I wanted to. You’d learn a lot about people, that’s for sure!
I survived turning 60, I was not thrilled to turn 61, I was less thrilled to turn 62, I didn’t much like being 63, I loathed being 64, and I will hate being 65. I don’t let on about such things in person; in person, I am cheerful and Pollyanna-ish. But the honest truth is that it’s sad to be over 60.
Time, which wears down and diminishes all things, augments and increases good deeds, because a good turn liberally offered to a reasonable man grows continually through noble thought and memory.
Right now it’s only a notion, but I think I can get the money to make it into a concept, and later turn it into an idea.

Any time you think you have the game conquered, the game will turn around and punch you right in the nose.

You start freaking out like a trapped animal.
