You can't beat death but you can beat death in life, sometimes. And the more often you learn to do it, the more light there will be. Your life is your life. Know it while you have it.
You can't beat a love triangle.
You can't beat a good doughnut. It has to be a jam one with light pastry and caster sugar on the outside. If I'm really tired, I have to hunt one down, because it gives me that sugar rush to keep me going.
You can't beat a Diane Von Fostenburg wrap dress; I always tend to go for the wrap dresses with a little more structure. I also love Prada shoes.
You can't beat The Beatles, you join 'em.
You can't beat Freddie Mercury. He was a mad man in the best sense possible.
You can't beat 2 guitars, bass, and drums.
You can't be, like, smashing guitars against Marshall stacks all the time. As a matter of fact, after a while, it just looks like posing -- it never really gets down to any message or any real expression.
You can't be young always. The day will come when everything will fall apart.
You can't be without passion. Passion means the possessiveness to be the best.
You can't be who you are going to be and who you used to be at the same time.
You can't be what you can't see. Expose yourself to more role models and diverse experience to broaden your perspectives and ideas.
You can't be what you can't see, so it's harder for women to say, I'm going to be a presidential candidate, so we need to go to women who would be good candidates and say, You would be a good candidate and I'll help you. It's not a passive question, it's not when will it happen, but an active question, when will we make it happen?
You can't be value free when it comes to marriage.
You can't be vain as an actor. In 'Ab Fab,' we were made up as old women with bald wigs and jowly necks, and we looked fantastic.
You can't be up the reader's ass, as many a writer I think is -- cute as hell, ingratiating as hell. But that's not loving the reader in the right way. That's toadying to the reader.
You can't be unhappy in the middle of a big, beautiful river.
You can't be two people in your brain, one rock dude and a dad -- there's something in the middle of them, and that's really what you are and that's going to make you the best dad -- not when you try to be one or the other.
You can't be trying to make a film that pleases all people, you know, so it's not a concern of mine.
