By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
Quality is not an act, it is a habit.
Wherever you are - be all there.
Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds.
Know or listen to those who know.
If you've got a talent, protect it.
If you think you can do it, you can.
Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.
Always desire to learn something useful.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
I live in, literally, the same home when I was swiping my first bank card and wondering if I'd have to put back the Charmin. We still don't have a dishwasher. My mom has done all these gardens so now my house looks like the garden shack in the middle of Versailles.
I have this extraordinary life during the day, and then I get to come home to my sweet husband who loves to cook with me. I have a nice glass of wine, he has some scotch, we chat, we cook, and we hang out with the dog. I have an absolute dream life.
Good food and a warm kitchen are what makes a house a home. I always tried to make my home like my mother's, because Mom was magnificent at stretching a buck when it came to decorating and food. Like a true Italian, she valued beautification in every area of her life, and I try to do the same.
Praying privately in churches, I began to discover that heaven was my true home and also that it was here and now, woven into this life.
During the Second World War, evacuated to non-Jewish households, I encountered Christianity at home and in school.
I fantasize about having a manual job where I can come home at night, read a book and not feel responsible for what will happen the next day.
I came from a broken home, so my mom was a major influence in my life.
I want any excuse to come home. My dad is not a spring chicken any more. If anyone says, 'Go buy a postage stamp in London,' I'll go and do it.
I had to learn to dance for 'The Adjustment Bureau' and it was nearly impossible. I turned up with my knees knocking in my leotard and went home and cried my eyes out.
I hate formal stuff. I love looking like a doll and all that stuff and playing dress up, but when I'm home, sweat pants, t-shirt. When I'm in the studio, sweat pants, t-shirt.
