For one human being to love another; that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation.
– Rainer Maria Rilke
In a way, as an actor, you do all the preparation and then you want to forget it and just play the scene. As a director, you can’t forget it because somebody will remind you that you forgot something. But you can know your plan well enough that you still have a certain amount of freedom.
– Thomas Gibson
I’m not a fan of grilling meat, since that tends to dry it out, and I find grill marks leave a bitter taste. A good steak house will offer different options for preparation, and I would ask them to broil or pan-roast the steak and finish it with butter. It ends up a dark chocolate color and stays very juicy.

Da was a real fisherman. But it wasn’t the catch that mattered, it was the skill of the cast, the preparation of the flies. I often think my inability to prepare, my desire to get going, are a direct result of watching my father making all those painstaking preparations before he cast his line.
– Terry Wogan
Pilots, to a large degree, are like salesmen. They have to be confident to be good at their jobs. They have to practice relentlessly and plan out all the scenarios of the things that could happen when they’re out there. Nothing is more important than preparation. They are also mighty competitive, both as individuals and as squadrons.
– Simon Sinek
I think I have some ideas on coaching, but listen, coaches work harder than players. The hours they put in, the headaches that they have. That’s the one thing I’ve never liked about coaching. They have all the emotion, passion and preparation without actually getting to be able to dictate what happens.
– Tim Howard
You have to rely on your preparation. You got to really be passionate and try to prepare more than anyone else, and put yourself in a position to succeed, and when the moment comes you got to enjoy, relax, breathe and rely on your preparation so that you can perform and not be anxious or filled with doubt.
– Steve Nash
