My goal has been to encourage jointness, to push people to think of affiliations rather than to operate as solo entrepreneurs.
Universities are not here to be mediums for the coercion of other people, they're here to be mediums for the free exchange of ideas.
Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can't lose.
We all need people who will give us feedback. That's how we improve.
I feel like life is much greater than a hero or a villain: there's good people that sometimes make mistakes.
So I won't say I'm lucky. I'm fortunate enough to find or attract very talented people. For some reason I found them, and they found me.
People say I design architectural icons. If I design a building and it becomes an icon, that's ok.
People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents.
There are new words now that excuse everybody. Give me the good old days of heroes and villains, the people you can bravo or hiss. There was a truth to them that all the slick credulity of today cannot touch.
The most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they can be great in whatever they want to do.
Life could be wonderful if people would leave you alone.
If there were no bad people, there would be no good lawyers.
Communism doesn't work because people like to own stuff.
We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves.
People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.
We try to be real nice and friendly to people, but sometimes they take advantage of that.
Nobody gets justice. People only get good luck or bad luck.
A lot of people, when a guy scores a lot of goals, think, 'He's a great player', because a goal is very important, but a great player is a player who can do everything on the field. He can do assists, encourage his colleagues, give them confidence to go forward. It is someone who, when a team does not do well, becomes one of the leaders.
I think people really marry far too much; it is such a lottery after all, and for a poor woman a very doubtful happiness.
When the 'godfather of punk' thing started floatin' around, it was, I was really, really embarrassed. I thought I should have a great, big rig and a cape and everything, and it was very embarrassing. And then after a while, you learn that if people call you anything, this is a great gift.
What some people would call antics, I would just call a good show.
I try to beat back the producers and engineers so they - there's not an excess of stuff used to squeeze my voice to make it artificial. There's a person in there, and people will listen; if they hear another person speak to them, they'll listen because it's lonely out here.
Successful people have a bigger fear of failure than people who've never done anything because if you haven't been successful, then you don't know how it feels to lose it all.
I treat people based on who they really are, not the name. Everyone has to be respectful and be a human being. No one's above... That's how I carry it with anybody.
I follow three rules: Do the right thing, do the best you can, and always show people you care.
I never want to be anywhere else than in the rehearsal room. I mean, it's so lame to say, but it makes me supremely happy to work with people and to talk and invent and laugh.
There's always gonna be setbacks; there's always gonna be knockdowns. There's always gonna be people telling you, 'Hey, you suck!'
If I have the honor of being confirmed by the Senate, I will make it my highest priority to restore the public's confidence in the FBI and to re-earn the faith and trust of the American people.
There are good leaders who actively guide and bad leaders who actively misguide. Hence, leadership is about persuasion, presentation and people skills.
People don't understand that when I grew up, I was never the most talented. I was never the biggest. I was never the fastest. I certainly was never the strongest. The only thing I had was my work ethic, and that's been what has gotten me this far.
The amount of meetings I've been in - people would be shocked. But that's how you gain experience, how you can gain knowledge, being in meetings and participating. You learn and grow.
I'm an actress and mom, and I probably don't have enough of an active spiritual life. And I don't know why people run around calling themselves by the names of religions when they don't actually practise them.
I was a left-handed dentist who made people cry.
Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.
A bookstore is one of the only pieces of evidence we have that people are still thinking.
Our music doesn't make many compromises, but we take it into a venue that's larger than people expect.
I have to remind myself constantly that people actually want to hear the music I've made; that's hard for me to digest. I think a live audience is the only tangible evidence you can have that your work is making an impact. It's really humbling.
Your smile will give you a positive countenance that will make people feel comfortable around you.
People never lie so much as after a hunt, during a war or before an election.
Sometimes people think drawing and painting is mucking about when actually it is a highly skilled activity.
My belief is that we were put into this world of wonders and beauty with a special ability to appreciate them, in some cases to have the fun of taking a hand in developing them, and also in being able to help other people instead of overreaching them and, through it all, to enjoy life - that is, to be happy.
Great things in business are never done by one person. They're done by a team of people.
Technology is nothing. What's important is that you have a faith in people, that they're basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they'll do wonderful things with them.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
No one's ever happy with their position in Hollywood. You hear that from people you'd never dream would complain.
When I was about four, people used to walk up to my mom and say I should be in commercials.
I'm not a wimpy kid at all. I don't care what other people think - I only care what I think about myself.
I love retweeting things and seeing how many fans are on other people's pages.
Liberty cannot be preserved without general knowledge among the people.
I love it when people doubt me. It makes me work harder to prove them wrong.
There may be people who have more talent than you, but there's no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do - and I believe that.
My best vacation is somewhere I could hide, somewhere warm and not a lot of people around.
People are not disturbed by things, but by the view they take of them.
The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best.
A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.
I want to rip out his heart and feed it to Lennox Lewis. I want to kill people. I want to rip their stomachs out and eat their children.
If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all.
Half the world is composed of people who have something to say and can't, and the other half who have nothing to say and keep on saying it.
I don't know a single collector or museum director who says: 'Oh, he's on a list, so I think I'll buy something of his.' The people who buy my art put a little more thought into it than that.
When I told the people of Northern Ireland that I was an atheist, a woman in the audience stood up and said, 'Yes, but is it the God of the Catholics or the God of the Protestants in whom you don't believe?
I found there was only one way to look thin: hang out with fat people.
When people ask me exactly how much time I spend in each country, I always tell them I have no idea.
I don't like going to the gym because I don't like being with people I don't know in that intense environment.
If people liked seeing me in loverboy roles, I don't intend to break that.
People's behaviour towards you changes when your films don't work. It's a painful period.
I've been fascinated by the Internet from the very start. In 2001, I had made a funny black-and-white film called 'How to Dance Properly,' a short video of me dancing to a Madonna song. I sent it to 17 of my friends on a Thursday, and by Monday, one million people a day were logging on to view it.
Let me think about the people who I care about the most, and how when they fail or disappoint me... I still love them, I still give them chances, and I still see the best in them. Let me extend that generosity to myself.
What better way to connect with people than by staring and talking straight at them? Don't blink - that's one less connection you could have made.
On street corners everywhere, people are looking at their cell phones, and it's easy to dismiss this as some sort of bad trend in human culture. But the truth is life is being lived there. When they smile - right, you've seen people stop - all of a sudden, life is being lived there, somewhere up in that weird, dense network.
If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.
Don't try to be young. Just open your mind. Stay interested in stuff. There are so many things I won't live long enough to find out about, but I'm still curious about them. You know people who are already saying, 'I'm going to be 30 - oh, what am I going to do?' Well, use that decade! Use them all!
I'm compulsively on time. It drives me insane when people are late.
The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any.
People refer to me as 'that 'Love Boat' man.'
When people say to me 'what do you think of rap music?' my answer is there's no such thing. There's rap and there's music.
I find great beauty in songs with a creative interpretation, but most people generally don't get that, and go for the simple songs, but I prefer something a bit more complicated, which is more meaningful to the creator.
Because I'm shy and a bit quiet, I think people assume I'm an elegant person.
Every terrorist regime in the world uses isolation to break people's spirits.
I'm a real big Marilyn Manson fan. I get a lot of my styles from him. Not even musically - living-wise, too. Marilyn Manson definitely shows me you shouldn't care what nobody say. I watched a bunch of his interviews, and he's not just an artist; he's one of the most intelligent people I ever saw in my life.
Without a union, the people are always cheated, and they are so innocent.
I am tough, but deep inside my toughness, I like to let people know I'm an old-fashioned mama's boy.
The thing I like about college football so much is you can affect these guys a lot more when they are 18-22, 23 years old in terms of people and having a chance to be more successful. They are still a value type development, where you have a chance to help them mature a bit and help them be a little more successful in life.
When you have the ability to affect other people and be somebody that somebody wants to emulate, care enough to help somebody else for their benefit, that's what makes you a good teammate, and that's what everybody's looking for.
I feel like if I live the Christian life, then the people should be able to see it in my everyday actions.
Having a chance to be someone other than yourself and to act out stuff that makes people look at you, like, wow, and that's why I love acting so much.
The point about manic depression or bipolar disorder, as it's now more commonly called, is that it's about mood swings. So, you have an elevated mood. When people think of manic depression, they only hear the word depression. They think one's a depressive. The point is, one's a manic-depressive.
What is it in people, or just in people like me, that would rather let a lie go by, would rather wish it away or minimize it, than point it out and cause the liar embarrassment?
Why do elites hate the poor? It's xenophobia. They don't know any poor people - except their off-the-books Brazilian nanny and illegal immigrant cleaning lady from Upper Revolta who don't speak English.
The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it, because it's only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles, wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on.
How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.
Judaism shouldn't be the jailhouse of ideas but a liberator of ideas; not a disintegrator of people but what brings people together.

The penalty of success is to be bored by people who used to snub you.
We probably wouldn't worry about what people think of us if we could know how seldom they do.
I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.
You probably wouldn't worry about what people think of you if you could know how seldom they do.
Sarcasm: the last refuge of modest and chaste-souled people when the privacy of their soul is coarsely and intrusively invaded.
If you look at Washington right now, we do not have a system that the Founding Fathers envisioned, where people go to Washington and be part of the servant class. Instead, we have a permanent political class that fashions itself the rulers of the people.
What people don't understand is joining a gang ain't bad, it's cool, it's fine. When you in the hood, joining a gang it's cool because all your friends are in the gang, all your family's in the gang. We're not just killing people every night, we're just hanging out, having a good time.
Goodness is something people take advantage of, and if you want to remain a good person for long, you should make sure that too many people don't take advantage of you because then you turn bitter.
My dream role would be a role that is entertaining and 'massy,' and it should be able to make people laugh and cry and make the audience scared of me and then make them fall in love with me again.
It's not easy to put a smile on people's faces.
When I was younger I would go to the airport with my friends and drive out 2 A.M., 3 A.M. in the morning and just hang out until sunrise watching planes fly in and fly out. Just sit there and dream about how, one day, that's going to be us in those flights. We're gonna be one of those people with places to go.
A lot of people think that because I'm from Malaysia, I'm driven by Malaysian sound, but actually, it's mostly just my melodies.
My idea of good company is the company of clever, well-informed people who have a great deal of conversation; that is what I call good company.
When you love and accept yourself, when you know who really cares about you, and when you learn from your mistakes, then you stop caring about what people who don't know you think.
I think the concept of polo that people had in the 1920s and the 1930s was much more accurate, when going to a polo match was seen as a great day out and great fun on a more popular level.
If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles.
When one tears away the veils and shows them naked, people's souls give off such a pungent smell of decay.
Most comedy is based on getting a laugh at somebody else's expense. And I find that that's just a form of bullying in a major way. So I want to be an example that you can be funny and be kind, and make people laugh without hurting somebody else's feelings.
Here are the values that I stand for: honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values.
Music is pretty intimate stuff and I can only work with very few people: Gonzalez being one, Mocky being another and, on a completely different level, Broken Social Scene. With Broken Social Scene it's not one-on-one, it's a one-on-12. It's very healthy, very comfortable, like a big pot luck supper among old friends.
The highest levels of performance come to people who are centered, intuitive, creative, and reflective - people who know to see a problem as an opportunity.
What I learned with tech companies is I gotta give people room to experiment, and also to make what might later on be a mistake. This is the attitude I want to build within San Francisco - give some time to the tech community.
I feel more comfortable in a place like Brighton - a town, with one centre, one bus station, one train station. And there are so many arty, creative people, and things are less rushed, less stressed.
