I like to talk about my obsession with french fries because I don't want people to think that 'Let's Move' is about complete utter deprivation. It's about moderation and real-life changes and ideas that really work for families.
Decide what you want decide what you are willing to exchange for it. Establish your priorities and go to work.
It's easier to change what you do than people think it is. If you don't change your field changes around you.
The women's movement hasn't changed my sex life. It wouldn't dare.
Despite the encouraging and wonderful gains and the changes for women which have occurred in my lifetime there is still room to advance and to promote correction of the remaining deficiencies and imbalances.
Young feminists have been sold a bill of goods about American feminism. The enormous changes in women over the past 40 years are constantly and falsely attributed to the organized women's movement of the late 1960s and '70s.
The women's movement completely changed attitudes all over the world in ways we'll never be able to count.
But the Wisdom of God which is His only-begotten Son being in all respects incapable of change or alteration and every good quality in Him being essential and such as cannot be changed and converted His glory is therefore declared to be pure and sincere.
Wisdom lies neither in fixity nor in change but in the dialectic between the two.
Your art kind of changes as you get older by nature of the fact that you're hopefully gaining wisdom and you're starting to watch things with a better overview.
Humility is the only true wisdom by which we prepare our minds for all the possible changes of life.
True wisdom is less presuming than folly. The wise man doubteth often and changeth his mind the fool is obstinate and doubteth not he knoweth all things but his own ignorance.
The Iraq war was fought by one-half of one percent of us. And unless we were part of that small group or had a relative who was we went about our lives as usual most of the time: no draft no new taxes no changes. Not so for the small group who fought the war and their families.
War continues to divide people to change them forever and I write about it both because I want people to understand the absolute futility of war the 'pity of war' as Wilfred Owen called it.
Ants are so much like human beings as to be an embarrassment. They farm fungi raise aphids as livestock launch armies into war use chemical sprays to alarm and confuse enemies capture slaves engage in child labour exchange information ceaselessly. They do everything but watch television.
Officials at the White House are saying that President Bush hasn't changed his schedule much since the war started. The main difference they say is that he's started watching the news and taping Sponge Bob.
When I can look life in the eyes grown calm and very coldly wise life will have given me the truth and taken in exchange - my youth.
In fact men will fight for a superstition quite as quickly as for a living truth - often more so since a superstition is so intangible you cannot get at it to refute it but truth is a point of view and so is changeable.
Let's say a Soviet exchange student back in the '70s would go back and tell the KGB about people and places and things that he'd seen and done and been involved with. This is not really espionage there's no betrayal of trust.
Citizens the priority now is to recover trust between the Egyptian - amongst the Egyptians and to have trust and confidence in our economy and international reputation and the fact that the change that we have embarked on will carry on and there's no going back to the old days.
But that citizen's perception was also at one with the truth in recognizing that the very brutality of the means by which the IRA were pursuing change was destructive of the trust upon which new possibilities would have to be based.
Some of their best songs don't have bridges and choruses. So that made me think I should trust my instincts. My songs were okay I figured. I didn't need to change anything.
People make suggestions on what to say all the time. I'll give you an example I don't read what's handed to me. People say 'Here here's your speech or here's an idea for a speech.' They're changed. Trust me.
Time travel may be achieved one day or it may not. But if it is it should not require any fundamental change in world-view at least for those who broadly share the world view I am presenting in this book.
