You can't get there by bus only by hard work and risk and by not quite knowing what you're doing. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover will be yourself.
Being a mother is quite tiring. There's not much time to do anything. You just rush around and it's hard work.
Yet consider now whether women are not quite past sense and reason when they want to rule over men.
I never expected to get the Tom Jones treatment and it amazes me that I do. Strangely it's women who throw their underwear at me when I'm performing live. My male fans tend to be quite shy. My female fans are wild. I never know what to do with all the lingerie that lands at my feet. Maybe I should open a shop.
People love talking about when they were young and heard Honky Tonk Women for the first time. It's quite a heavy load to carry on your shoulders the memories of so many people.
Women are frightening. If you get to 41 as a man you're quite battle-scarred.
I feel increasingly like age is very irrelevant. Quite often cynicism is confused with wisdom and my scorn is confused with a knowing which I don't have.
The wisdom of God's Word is quite clear on believers being unequally yoked. And marrying someone who is not a Christian - who is not a daily disciple of Christ - is being unequally yoked regardless of what their beliefs might be.
The only medicine for suffering crime and all other woes of mankind is wisdom. Teach a man to read and write and you have put into his hands the great keys of the wisdom box. But it is quite another thing to open the box.
It was quite a European war until 1917 when the Americans joined up. They don't have the same sense of the loss of innocence and the cataclysmic loss of life. A whole generation was wiped out.
Some artists shrink from self-awareness fearing that it will destroy their unique gifts and even their desire to create. The truth of the matter is quite opposite.
I cringe at backstory. Because it never quite explains or gets into some psychological thing that is never quite right and never quite the truth and who knows why someone is some way.
In fact men will fight for a superstition quite as quickly as for a living truth - often more so since a superstition is so intangible you cannot get at it to refute it but truth is a point of view and so is changeable.
I've been & am absurdly over-estimated. There are no supermen & I'm quite ordinary & will say so whatever the artistic results. In that point I'm one of the few people who tell the truth about myself.
And trust yes which is important but that is what I aim towards. Now that is difficult for some people and with that desire to get things as good as possible I would say that I'm probably regarded as quite prickly to work with.
It's not that I don't believe in miracles but I never quite trust that they're real.
What you say about this world I do not quite agree with I think it a very good world and only requires a person to be reasonable in his expectations and not to trust too much to others.
I think a film set is a quite controlled environment and you feel like you can trust them and it is going to be a safe place to work but I really don't think about it.
A lot of film directors are quite scared of actors. They are a bit of a nightmare sometimes but I like them. It looks like cunning but you try to get extra things from them all the time by stealth by making them feel confident so they trust you and you can push a bit.
You know the interesting thing about having traveled around the country as much as I have and I think it's sort of inadvertently what made me come out or at least begin doing things within the community and thinking more about that was that I get to travel quite a bit.
I got the travel bug when I was quite young. My parents took me and my sisters out of school and we travelled all over Europe. It was an eye-opening experience and although I love Norway I also enjoy visiting new countries. I don't get homesick.
I've been lucky to travel through quite a bit of Europe and Australia but I would love to do Asia and South America and South Africa.
I have a character failing. I am quite incapable of identifying with anything whole-heartedly. Whatever I am doing I am always planning to do something else. I would rather travel than arrive.
A travel book is about someone who goes somewhere travels on the ground sees something and spends quite a lot of time doing it and has a hard time and then comes back and writes about it. It's not about inventing.
