As a child growing up, there were no books in my parents` home, no suggestions were ever made how to even have a decent conversation, no guidance was provided in search of oneself. The only source of information that I would get from my father was the inappropriate photos of women. The first thing as a support that I received from my father was a guitar after he recognized my passion for music. Nowadays, I try to self educate myself by purchasing good books which I almost never read because I become lazy after glancing at a football game on TV.
Histories are to educate, so that we understand better for ourselves and for motivation.
Traveling - even to Los Angeles - it was big... When I went out there with my country accent, people would laugh at the way I talk. They`d be like, "Say `orange` again." I`d be like, "`Orange.` What?" Now, going around the world, it`s such a great experience, I feel so blessed, because I get to see the world. I get a broad perspective of the world, and we`ve got so much here in America - and in Africa, there are places with no clean water, places with no schools, no hospitals. That really took me by surprise - well, educated me a lot. I would say in the last six years I`ve been doing a lot of educating myself about what`s been going on in the world... Yeah, I just enjoy traveling, because that`s how I educate myself, and there`s nothing better than traveling to a place (to learn) about it.
You`re confronted with the quandary: do I grind things to a halt? Ideally you would, but I have better things to do than educate people.
I`ve been involved with the Creative Coalition since shortly after the founding by (actor) Ron Sliver and (actress) Susan Sarandon and (actor) Christopher Reeve. I love to really roll up my sleeves and get my hands dirty on any level when it comes to these sorts of issues, (i.e. gun control, freedom of speech) on a grass roots level or a clerical level. I love to educate myself and others and help raise awareness on important issues. I love to utilize my celebrity status in a responsible and constructive and substantive manner. I like to get my hands dirty rather than a photo op."
I`d like to help educate kids about the Major Leagues - what to anticipate, what to expect, what they`ll need to do to prepare themselves.
You should be able to voice your opinion and respect the voice of the other side. You should be willing to educate yourself and know what it is you`re dealing with.
There`s a perception that British pies suffer from mediocrity, and historically they have. We`re trying to re-educate people about what pie is.
We`re here to educate lawmakers on a poorly written bill that basically advocates for the fugitives and the person who house them.
I tell children from all over the country that it?s good to eat healthy and nothing to be ashamed about. They know me from the Subway commecials and can relate to what I?m saying. Here at the Little League World Series you have a great age group that I?m sure wants to stay healthy, but not all are sure how to do it. Ultimately they make the decision, but parents need to educate their children on what?s good and not good to eat.
There is a natural partnership between State and Commerce, and the American business community to work together to educate the United States about marketing overseas.
That`s the problem with the Campus Republicans. They want to win elections. We want to educate (the student body). The Republican Party wants to stay autonomous, so they don`t like conservative groups like ours coming in.
They don`t have the news media set up in Africa that we do in the United States, where televisions are so accessible and newspapers and magazines are able to educate people.
You have to give the press confrontations. When you give them confrontations, you get attention; when you get attention, you can educate.
Leibniz dedicated his life to efforts to educate people to understand that true happiness is found by locating their identity in benefitting mankind and their posterity.
This gives parents an option, ... It gives parents a choice in how they educate their children.
We need to basically educate Costa Ricans that they shouldn`t cut down the rain forest and should use shadow coffee, which is grown underneath the trees.
We take this seriously. The pro gambling culture is something we educate our players about extensively.
American studios give money to directors to educate them away from their creative fingerprint, even if that`s the reason they wanted them in the first place. I`ve avoided that fate by making movies here. You have to fight the urge to do a big action movie. You avoid `Batman.` The bigger it is, the worse it is.
I hope that when you leave here today you will have the knowledge of who you are and the challenges and power of what you can do to make a difference in the ultimate reality show, survival on earth. I want to motivate you to do the following: educate, advocate, and donate.
About his follow-up film to Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004) and the re-election of President George W. Bush, where Bush won 51% of the popular vote: "We want to get cameras rolling now and have it ready in two, three years. We want to document it. Fifty-one per cent of the American people lacked information (in this election), and we want to educate and enlighten them. They weren`t told the truth. We`re communicators and it`s up to us to start doing it now. The official mourning period is over today, and there is a silver lining: George W. Bush is prohibited by law from running (for presidency) again."
We have to change our behavior. We are the mother, the first teacher and we have to start our own revolution. We need to speak up and say we don`t like this music, we don`t want to wear these clothes, and we need to educate ourselves and stop letting the men get all that air time.

When I went to school - Pasadena Playhouse - we were taught that the obligation of the actor is twofold; to entertain - and to educate. We don`t educate. So I`ve taken that onto myself. Now, am I a good educator? I don`t know. If someone latches onto a concept of mine, then I`ve taught well; otherwise, I`ll have to rethink my stand on things. But, in a country where individualism is supreme and synonymous with being an American, it`s all vanished - it`s all gone now. You go to college, and you know what you learn in college? How to work for somebody else. I teach an acting class for teenagers in the summer - I have for the past fourteen years. I don`t encourage them to go to college: you want to be an actor? Be an actor. If you have to starve to do it, starve to do it. But if you`re not passionate about what you want to do, you won`t be good at it.
We are thrilled to have Rascal Flatts, currently the hottest group in country music, associated with our efforts to educate the public as to the special needs of our men and women in uniform, and their generosity in wearing the bands at their appearances and concerts has done a great deal to help us bring our message to their fans and friends about how to support our armed forces. In addition, their kindness in bringing a large number of bands along with them to distribute to the troops in the Persian Gulf is just another example of their enthusiastic support. Rascal Flatts is definitely a band for freedom.
Educate your children to self-control, to the habit of holding passion and prejudice and evil tendencies subject to an upright and reasoning will, and you have done much to abolish misery from their future and crimes from society.
When you look at the statistics for heart disease and diabetes in African-American women, it`s detected very late. We`re trying to reach out to a younger audience and educate them before they get to that stage.
Unfortunately, less than five percent of people diagnosed with cancer will be treated through enrollment in a clinical trial. Our organization is very supportive of the Coalition and its efforts to accelerate research. We believe that in recent years patients have received better treatment options in trials, and if we can educate people about clinical trials I am confident that we can increase enrollment in these high-priority colon cancer trials.
I played around with the flowers and the lighting, so that was a good way to educate myself.
Information can bring you choices and choices bring power - educate yourself about your options and choices. Never remain in the dark of ignorance.
I am looking forward to working within the community to help educate people about Hospice Circle of Love. We want the public to be aware of the important services we provide to those in need.
We need to educate boaters in waters that are shallow to watch for the signs. There are very few navigational aids in areas like that.
At Emerson we never use the term `lobby,` ... We use the term `educate.` Our management believes that if we can educate elected officials to the global challenges that American businesses face today ... that hopefully they will make better public policy decisions.
Search engines need to better educate marketers and provide greater transparency into their methods. If they say that a certain percentage of clicks are fraudulent or if they offer a refund to marketers on some clicks, the engines will best serve marketers and agencies by being more open about how they come to such conclusions.
The county needs to educate the public and come up with better recommendations for what types of trees should be planted.
My inspiration for Baker Tonys Pizza came from my desire to educate our children on the politics of the Iraq war in a light-hearted fashion.

I absolutely think it`s a good idea. Children - actually, all of us - have to learn to apply the technology in our lives, and the only way we can start to do that is to know where we`re at. I don`t know much about this specific project, but I think it`s logical to find out where students are standing in order to help educate them.
Sometimes you see kids addressing issues, whether it be suicide, or drugs affecting them or their family. Sometimes the poems are a cry for help - something they can`t express but they need to say. It`s feelings and emotions coming out. Not just a story to inform or educate, but true emotions. The other teens can really relate to that.
One of the first duties of the physician is to educate the masses not to take medicine.

In order to educate man to a new longing, everyday familiar objects must be shown to him with totally unexpected perspectives and in unexpected situations. New objects should be depicted from different sides in order to provide a complete impression of the object.

This national screening is celebrating its 15th year and HRA is hosting the event for this very reason -- to help bring these illnesses to the public`s attention and educate people about the necessity and power of screening,
We`ve tried to educate people over the years. If you`re not in a high-risk area, not in danger of flooding or intense winds, stay at home, hunker down, or go to a shelter. If you`re going to evacuate, go 10 or 20 miles, not hundreds.
He has consistently opposed war and violence. He has worked for peace and to educate in particular young people about non-violence and the power of non-violence.
We are all tattooed in our cradles with the beliefs of our tribe; the record may seem superficial, but it is indelible. You cannot educate a man wholly out of superstitious fears which were implanted in his imagination, no matter how utterly his reason may reject them.
This awareness instills a fierce desire to protect that heritage and - in doing so - to educate Americans in the meaning and importance of our pivotal documents.
