If I was on the air and was just kind of a plain-vanilla personality that took the safe road and the safe way trying to please all of the people all of the time, I’d been gone in two weeks.
If you’ve gone into a marriage and you haven’t been clear about how you’re going to handle money, how you want to raise kids, who is going to work or stay home or what have you, then you’ve set yourself up for failure.
Awareness without action is worthless.
There is nothing wrong with your marriage if you’re dealing with bills and kids and the broken garbage disposal and in-laws and work demands. That’s a normal marriage.
Sometimes you make the right decision, sometimes you make the decision right.
I just am not good at math.
My dad used to say, ‘You wouldn’t worry so much about what people thought about you if you knew how seldom they did.
I’m one of those that believes you can’t be one kind of a man and another kind of president.
I don’t substitute anybody else’s judgment for my own.
You’re only lonely if you’re not there for you.
The most you get is what you ask for.
I think you’re running into a lot of trouble if your idea of foreplay is, ‘Brace yourself honey, here I come!’
The problem is that for women, the average time is just over 14 minutes… men are left with about 12 minutes during which time they need to think of something to do!
I think I’ve got the best staff in television.
I grew up in athletics, where people keep score.
I do not believe, even remotely, that you have to have a partner in your life in order to be whole, in order to be complete, in order to be fulfilled. You just don’t have to.
You don’t need a rope to pinch a stranger’s butt.
When I was practicing psychology, I used to tell myself if I ever get to where I’m just doing this for the money or I’m just going through the motions, I’ll quit.
Sometimes you just got to give yourself what you wish someone else would give you.
You don’t need a pack of wild horses to learn how to make a sandwich.
It’s hard to see your own face without a mirror.
If your neighbor has a completely different view on abortion, gay marriage, stem cell research, all of those things, you still are both Americans. Neither one of you is necessarily more patriotic than the other. Neither loves their country any more than the other one does.
A lot of people do have tragic childhoods. But you know what? Get over it.
We all have a social mask, right? We put it on, we go out, put our best foot forward, our best image. But behind that social mask is a personal truth, what we really, really believe about who we are and what we’re capable of.
Life is a full-contact sport, and there’s a score up on the board.
Don’t wait until you’re in a crisis to come up with a crisis plan.
You have got to decide, look, this is who I am; this is my best way to present myself, and I’m going to ride that horse to the finish line. Not everybody will like it, but that’s OK.
I think every parent, every generation has wanted their children to do better and have a higher standard of living. But I think there’s too much guilt.
Do you realize that you can’t play the game of life with sweaty palms?
