Quote of the Day
We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.
George Bernard Shaw
There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.
Punk is musical freedom. It's saying, doing and playing what you want. In Webster's terms, 'nirvana' means freedom from pain, suffering and the external world, and that's pretty close to my definition of Punk Rock.
Life consists not in holding good cards but in playing those you hold well.
I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage. But when you start playing around with constitutions, just to prohibit somebody who cares about another person, it just seems to me that's not what America's about. Usually, our constitutions expand liberties, they don't contract them.
God is a comedian, playing to an audience too afraid to laugh.
Playing sick. That is so hard to do. It has to be a total mental challenge, as well as the physical challenge.
When I was playing before I retired, I never really understood the appreciation and the respect that people gave me. People had treated me like a god or something, and that was very embarrassing.
There is just no comparison between having a dinner date with a man and staying home playing canasta with the girls.
The writing process, the way I go about it is I do whatever the beat feels like, whatever the beat is telling me to do. Usually when the beat comes on, I think of a hook or the subject I want to rap about almost instantly. Within four, eight bars of it playing I'm just like, 'Oh, OK. This is what I wanna do'.
Writing free verse is like playing tennis with the net down.
When I die, just keep playing the records.
And I remember going to the record studio and there was a park across the street and I'd see all the children playing and I would cry because it would make me sad that I would have to work instead.
You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure about you. We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us.
We want everybody to act like adults, quit playing games, realize that it's not just my way or the highway.
Last night I stayed up late playing poker with Tarot cards. I got a full house and four people died.
These young guys are playing checkers. I'm out there playing chess.
If you don't know the blues... there's no point in picking up the guitar and playing rock and roll or any other form of popular music.
Thus so wretched is man that he would weary even without any cause for weariness... and so frivolous is he that, though full of a thousand reasons for weariness, the least thing, such as playing billiards or hitting a ball, is sufficient enough to amuse him.
I enjoy now doing what I do... playing golf, relaxing a little, enjoying life.
Life is not a matter of holding good cards, but of playing a poor hand well.
Robert Louis Stevenson
I like sports, and I enjoy playing basketball and lifting weights.
I am not a demon. I am a lizard, a shark, a heat-seeking panther. I want to be Bob Denver on acid playing the accordion.
I was like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.
Money was never a big motivation for me, except as a way to keep score. The real excitement is playing the game.
I like video games, but they are very violent. I want to create a video game in which you have to help all the characters who have died in the other games. 'Hey, man, what are you playing?' 'Super Busy Hospital. Could you leave me alone? I'm performing surgery! This guy got shot in the head, like, 27 times!'
So much of left-wing thought is a kind of playing with fire by people who don't even know that fire is hot.
The conscious mind may be compared to a fountain playing in the sun and falling back into the great subterranean pool of subconscious from which it rises.
I think the thing we see is that as people are using video games more, they tend to watch passive TV a bit less. And so using the PC for the Internet, playing video games, is starting to cut into the rather unbelievable amount of time people spend watching TV.
I've said that playing the blues is like having to be black twice. Stevie Ray Vaughan missed on both counts, but I never noticed.
B. B. King
