I am reminded of the importance of small kindnesses.
I am reminded of the old court jester who was supposed to entertain his king with interesting stories and antics. He looked at the king who was lolling on his throne, a drunken, filthy rascal, doffed his cap and bells, and said with a mock gesture of obeisance, O king, be loyal to the royal within you. And so I say to you young people today, remember your heritage, and be loyal to that royal lineage that you have as members of the church and kingdom of God on the earth.
I am reminded that no matter how hard you try, you can never be more than twelve years old with your parents. Parents earnestly try not to inflame, but their comments contain no scale and a strange focus. Discussing your private life with parents is like misguidedly looking at a zit in a car's rearview mirror and being convinced, in the absence of contrast or context, that you have developed combined heat rash and skin cancer.
I am repeatedly asked in interviews exactly 'what's wrong' with me, and I always give them the same answer; I don't identify the name of my condition in an interview unless it's relevant to the context of the story.
I am representing California, and all of California, definitely as a Mexicano, a Chicano, a Latino.
I am representing here -- the sound of silence. The cry of innocence. And, the face of invisibility. I represent millions of those children who are left behind, and that's why I have kept an empty chair here as a reminder.
I am representing my community, in a sense, especially given the fact that there are not as many Latino actors out there.
I am resigning because my secret leaves the governor's office vulnerable.
I am resigning my post in the parliament. I have done this because I think it is the right thing to do.
I am resilient like my mother and have the ability to face any kind of storm.
I am resolutely opposed to all innovation, all change, but I am determined to understand what's happening. Because I don't choose just to sit and let the juggernaut roll over me. Many people seem to think that if you talk about something recent, you're in favor of it. The exact opposite is true in my case. Anything I talk about is almost certainly something I'm resolutely against. And it seems to me the best way to oppose it is to understand it. And then you know where to turn off the buttons.
I am resolved to rise superior to every obstacle. With whom need I be afraid of measuring my strength? I will take Fate by the throat. It shall not overcome me. O how beautiful it is to be alive -- would that I could live a thousand times!
I am responsible for creating and overseeing the future products that make up Google Advertising.
I am responsible for managing more schoolteachers' and firemen's money than anybody in the world. That's an enormous responsibility.
I am responsible for me. I can kind of take care of what I need to do and should do what I like to do.
I am responsible for my brother's death. I feel the guilt of having survived. People say, 'You should be happy. You survived.' But I have this feeling that it is not right that I am alive.
I am responsible for my fate, I am the bringer of good unto myself, I am the bringer of evil. I am the Pure and Blessed One. We must reject all thoughts that assert to the contrary.
I am responsible for my life, my happiness, and my joy. I am responsible for my faults, which will destroy.
I am responsible for no one but myself.
