I think that people like Bloomberg, they’re complete thugs. No question about it. But on the other hand, it must be said that they are politically savvy. They don’t get into those positions of power - in the case of Bloomberg, both economic and political power - by being anybody’s fool.  (Being Like No Other Quotes) I’ve moved around so much my whole life, and I’ve gotten so used to being the Other in situations - the foreigner, the outsider. The first time I’ve ever felt like there was no separation between me and the other elements was in music.  (Being Like No Other Quotes) No doubt the ridiculous politicians are right to like politics. They have found careers in which success can be achieved by being ridiculous. Imagine Jimmy Carter or George W. Bush rising to the top of any other profession.  (Being Like No Other Quotes) I have no ego investment in being on the air. I don’t knock others for whom that kind of attention is like oxygen, but I don’t miss anything about it.  (Being Like No Other Quotes) Authors change publishers because it’s like being married for a long time and suddenly you want to go out and have a wild affair! No, not seriously, sometimes the deal is more interesting with a new publisher, and other times they have more enthusiasm for your books.  (Being Like No Other Quotes) I can think of no other experience quite like that of being 20 or so pages into a book and realizing that this is the real thing: a book that is going to offer the delicious promise of a riveting story, arresting language and characters that will haunt me for days.  (Being Like No Other Quotes) I don’t even pretend we can occupy the Lib Dem holier-than-thou, hands-entirely-clean-and-entirely-empty-type stance. No, we are getting our hands dirty, and inevitably and totally understandably we are being accused of being just like any other politicians  (Being Like No Other Quotes) For 24 hours a day, for 10 years, all I thought about was being in a band. That’s all I did. I had no other social life. I don’t want my life to be like that now. I’ve spent the past 10 years having a real life as well. But Spandau Ballet is such a difficult shadow to outrun  (Being Like No Other Quotes) People saw me as being heroic, but I was no more heroic than I was with other injuries I had, like the lacerated kidney I suffered during the 1990 World Series. It’s just that people haven’t known anyone with a lacerated kidney, but everyone can relate to someone with cancer  (Being Like No Other Quotes) I look at decisions like - it’s like an Indiana Jones movie. The guy comes to a rope ladder, and he’s being chased. There’s uncertainty on the other side, but he knows when he gets to the other side, he’s going to take his machete and cut the rope ladder behind him. He has no retreat  (Being Like No Other Quotes) Being as versatile as I am, I take offense to the notion that no serious musician would not be doing a late night talk show gig. One has to be open enough in other areas to be able to contribute to a show like this  (Being Like No Other Quotes) No man really knows about other human beings. The best he can do is to suppose that they are like himself  (Being Like No Other Quotes) Being a scientist is like being an explorer. You have this immense curiosity, this stubbornness, this resolute will that you will go forward no matter what other people say  (Being Like No Other Quotes) PRINT FREE GIANT POSTERS
