I asked her for a piece of advice, and she reached into her mom’s purse and pulled out a whiteboard. “She has laryngitis,” her mom explained. “No talking for a week.”

"With all the good it’s brought, technology is destroying our communication skills— especially the ability to listen.

"She’s stubborn, which I love. Because I like a challenge.""When’s the first time you realized she was stubborn?""We’d just graduated from college, and we were looking for jobs. She had some offers, but she said she wasn’t going to accept anything less than $35,000. That was a lot of money back in 1996. So I kept telling her: ‘Don’t be greedy. You don’t have any experience yet. Start small and work up.’ But she wouldn’t budge. And of course, she ended up getting exactly what she wanted."
"I’ve been making music my whole life, but I have the hardest time selling myself. And selling yourself is necessary if you want to be a successful artist. I can play something amazing, and I can say: ‘That’s just how I like it.’ But then I always lose my confidence, and say: ‘But who am I? And why does it matter what I like?’"
"I’m an economic forecaster currently specializing in Canada.""So what’s up next for Canada?""I think domestic spending will continue to grow at a steady rate, the trade side is going to get better, and business will bounce back."

"I always loved doing musicals in school, so when I came back from Iraq, I decided I was going to be an actor. I’ve been in all sorts of TV shows over the last ten years. You know, the kind of roles where people say: ‘Hey! Weren’t you ‘that guy’ in ‘that show?’ I work as a police officer to pay the bills. All the other officers call me Officer Hollywood."

"I’m trying to stay calm while watching all my friends get accepted to Ivy League schools."
"Is she your only child?""I have an eight year old son.""How are you going to raise your daughter differently than your son?""I’m going to be there more.""Why weren’t you there more for your son?""I was really young, and he had autism. I blamed myself for it. I thought maybe it was a result of my lifestyle. I just didn’t know how to handle it so I ran away from it. So I wasn’t there for him when he was younger, and I didn’t pick him up every time he fell. He knows I’m his dad but he doesn’t feel close to me. And I don’t want that to happen again."
I walked through Times Square last night to observe the Super Bowl revelry. Stepped into the Marriott Marquis, and decided to ride one of their glass elevators to the top floor. As soon as the door opened, I saw this.

And even though I was rebelling against it, and I always saw it as a meaningless formality, I’ve been surprised. There’s a comfort in knowing that you’re sworn to someone else."
"I’m a Catholic priest." "What’s the most difficult part about being a priest?" "You sort of have to be all things to all people, and everyone expects you to fulfill their needs right away. It may sometimes seem like I’m not concerned with your problem. But I might just be tired. Or have the flu."
"I have trouble at school with things like maintenance and organization. Those are my weaknesses.""So what are your strengths?""Raw intelligence. Not sure how else to say it."
