His answer to every problem, every setback, was “I will work harder!” – which he had adopted as his personal motto.
– George Orwell
You can tell if there’s magic in something. When you start it, you want to finish it and you want it to be perfect. If you’re not inspired, and you’re working hard to pull inspiration from somewhere and make a song something it’s not, then it’s very contrived, and I don’t like to write music that’s contrived.
You do certain things in your twenties that are just not appropriate in your thirties and certainly not appropriate in your forties. Eventually you even the scales, and it’s time to move on and become an adult and start working hard again and going to sleep a little bit earlier. Fortunately, I got a job to facilitate that transition.
– Jason Bateman
Getting recognized and doing shoots and signing on partnerships and signing on deals, that’s all great, and I’m so appreciative of that, but it’s more the reward that’s the most satisfying. I know the importance of working hard, and I appreciate pretty much everything that has come my way; I don’t take any of it for granted.
– Carli Lloyd
