At any given moment, we each face a barrage of obligations, often disparate and distinct from what we thought would happen when we woke up.

Man looks in the abyss, there’s nothing staring back at him. At that moment, man finds his character. And that is what keeps him out of the abyss.

The memory of that scene for me is like a frame of film forever frozen at that moment: the red carpet, the green lawn, the white house, the leaden sky. The new president and his first lady.

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be the best, but when it takes over the joy in the moment, and the joy in the journey, then that’s where there’s an internal tension. And I have to surrender that.
I do what I love to do at the moment. If I wake up tomorrow and decide I want to dance, that’s what I’d do. Or design clothes. I think I’d throw myself into whatever I’m doing now. It’s not about abandoning what I was doing before, or giving up. It’s about knowing that if I die tomorrow, I lived the way I wanted to.
It’s one of those things, like in sports and other situations in life, you’re going to have some adversities and some challenges that are similar to the race. You go uphill one moment and then you go downhill, but that’s life too. You’ve got to be willing to sometimes take it slow but keep going.
I have gotten better at saying to myself, ‘Relax and just take this moment in. Appreciate it for what it is.’
That’s what I’m interested in: the space in between, the moment of imagining what is possible and yet not knowing what that is.
I kiss the soil as if I placed a kiss on the hands of a mother, for the homeland is our earthly mother. I consider it my duty to be with my compatriots in this sublime and difficult moment.

While overeating would be seen by some as an indulgence of self, it is in fact a profound rejection of self. It is a moment of self-betrayal and self-punishment, and anything but a commitment to one’s own well-being.

I’ve decided to pick my moment to retire very carefully – in about 200 years time.
This is your moment. You’re meant to be here.

Public hangings are teaching moments. Every company has to do it. A teaching moment is worth a thousand CEO speeches. CEOs can talk and blab each day about culture, but the employees all know who the jerks are. They could name the jerks for you. It’s just cultural. People just don’t want to do it.
I used to have a dog, and I was very close to my dog, and he passed away, so when I need to bring out a moment where I’m crying, I bring out that moment. His name was Rinkles. All of the boys in my family’s names are spelled with an ‘R,’ and he was a boy, so he was Rinkles with an ‘R,’ not a ‘W.’
No books ever go into my laboratory. The thing I am to do and the way are revealed to me the moment I am inspired to create something new. Without God to draw aside the curtain, I would be helpless. Only alone can I draw close enough to God to discover His secrets.
I’m just living in the moment, trying to win every game. That’s all I’m focused on.
Everyone wants to be safe. Well, I got news for you: You can’t be safe. Life’s not safe. Your work isn’t safe. When you leave the house, it isn’t safe. The air you breathe isn’t going to be safe, not for very long. That’s why you have to enjoy the moment.

I think everybody has a moment in their career where you have to test whether it was right or wrong. We’ve all been there.

I live in the moment, and I reflect later.
Every day I go to my study and sit at my desk and put the computer on. At that moment, I have to open the door. It’s a big, heavy door. You have to go into the Other Room. Metaphorically, of course. And you have to come back to this side of the room. And you have to shut the door.
The men I idolized built their bodies and became somebody – like Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger – and I thought, ‘That can be me.’ So I started working out. The funny thing is I didn’t realize back then that I was having a defining moment.

It is the quality of the moment, not the number of days, or events, or of actors, that imports.
What I’ve discovered is that in art, as in music, there’s a lot of truth-and then there’s a lie.

It’s the moment that the audience falls in love.

Our imagination just needs space. It’s all it needs, that moment where you just sort of stare into the distance where your brain gets to sort of somehow rise up.

In the military I could exercise the power of being automatically respected because of the medals on my chest, not because I had done anything right at the moment to earn that respect.

We have to keep an eye on the future with a sense of the past in every passing moment of the present.

Death is one moment, and life is so many of them.
I was 16 and got my boyfriend’s name tattooed on me. Don’t do it. ‘Cause it hurts. The moment you do it, the next month, the next year, you’ll be broken up – trust me – and cover-ups hurt. You can show your love in other ways. Ink is not it. Write it on a piece of paper and mail it to him.

In a death-and-rebirth sense.
I love the physicality of my job and how my mind and body are most happy when I’m expressing and moving. My face was always secondary to body alignment and the dynamism of making a moment come alive.

I find I’m not one of these composers that are, you know, walking along a beach or walking on the mountainside in County Donegal that’s, you know, ‘Oh, a melody.’ It’s more a matter of eventually taking that moment with me to the studio, and it begins to evolve.

Some bands blow it before they even play. The most important moment of any show is when a band walks out with the red amp lights glowing, the flashlight that shows each performer the way to his spot on the stage. It’s crucial not to blow it. It sets the tempo of the show; it affects everyone’s perception of the band.

I aimed at the Archduke. I do not remember what I thought at that moment.
