Selling millions of albums is a sign you’ve infiltrated the culture.
I’m interested in seeing artists whom I respect who are very focused on the Black Lives Matter moment, bringing that into storytelling in a way that really amplifies the beauty and the humanity of people of color, and does it without having to wave a big sign that says, ‘This is what we’re doing.’
All businessmen – how do they communicate? God knows. Sign language, probably.
I did every odd job you could possibly imagine: Holding a sign in the rain for 14 hours straight, sweeping up cigarette butts, pouring coffee, running around – anything I could to be on a film set.

The first thing I look at is, ‘Is the entrepreneur going after really big problems, to the extent that it feels scary when they talk about it?’ You wonder if the idea is possible. I have seen that a lot of times, people go after small problems, and that’s a sign that they are not confident.

What are we empathizing to?’
Folks are always talking about 40 acres and a mule, but what we need is some psychoanalysis. Forget 40 acres in a mule: sign all of us up for some shrinks so we can get ourselves right by reflecting and truly learning ourselves.

And before our current legislature adjourns, we intend to become the first state of full and true choice by saying to every low and middle-income Hoosier family, if you think a non-government school is the right one for your child, you’re as entitled to that option as any wealthy family; here’s a voucher, go sign up.
I don’t know where horse riding could have taken me, and it’s something I can always go back to when I’ve retired from football, but the crossroads came in my life when Chelsea wanted to sign me and make me a professional footballer in 2013 when I was 20.

Everyone wants to be an arena act, and it’s making country music evolve. People are cutting things more for that arena environment.

I am disappointed that the President made the decision to have Ambassador Froman sign the TPP agreement in New Zealand.
I’m quite bullish. We’re coming up on year 15 of a flat stock market. Historically that’s a pretty good sign. So I’m not a hedge-fund manager but if I was I think I’d be feeling pretty good.
Prophets of doom have always taken risks in terms of ridicule and humiliation. If you stand on a street corner holding up a sign that reads ‘The End Is Near,’ passersby will laugh and heckle. People will say you’re like Chicken Little, running around telling people the sky is falling.

If a guy’s talking to you at a club and you’re having a long conversation, and then one of your friends comes up and he automatically devotes his attention to her, that’s always a sign to look for. They’re not always just doing it ’cause they’re being ‘friendly.’ They want to look for somebody new.
People may have thought that we changed a lot. I don’t think we came in with that intention. Certain things I can’t stomach. But I tried to be as collegial as possible.
