My wife and I have so much fun when we travel and find anything... like stray cats and squirrels.
I'm glad that my films have been consistently faring well rather than one stray Friday!
It could be my downfall, but I don't think it is - Hollywood is run on perception, and if you stray off the path of what you want to do with your career, it's suicide.
With the Stray Cats at least, we really took the music somewhere else. First, we wrote our own songs. That's a real weak point in modern classics if you do rockabilly or blues.
I have always brought home stray animals - everything from squirrels to wild rabbits to foxes and turtles.
How I long to fall just a little bit, to dance out of the lines and stray from the light.
However far fiction writers stray from their own lives and experiences - and I stray pretty far from mine - I think, ultimately, that we may be writing what we need to write in some way, albeit unconsciously.
Reasoning at every step he treads, Man yet mistakes his way, Whilst meaner things, whom instinct leads, Are rarely known to stray.
Far from the madding crowd's ignoble strife Their sober wishes never learn'd to stray Along the cool sequester'd vale of life They kept the noiseless tenor of their way.
And the betrayers of language ...... n and the press gang And those who had lied for hire The perverts, the perverters of language, the perverts, who have set money-lust Before the pleasures of the senses howling, as of a hen-yard in a printing-house, the clatter of presses, the blowing of dry dust and stray paper, foetor, sweat, the stench of stale oranges.
I can't tell you how many people have asked me to show them Stray Cat Strut and that little diminished run on the C. I guess my brain is wired backwards. I don't know what possessed me to do that, but I did.
If it takes you 20 or 25 years to establish yourself in one field, you really ought to be careful not to stray too far.
And gates ajar -- yes, so they were;
You left them open and stray goats entered your garden.
Genius and stupidity never stray from their respective paths talent wanders to and fro, following every light.
Art thou in misery, brother Then I pray Be comforted. Thy grief shall pass away. Art thou elated Ah, be not too gay Temper thy joy this, too, shall pass away. Art thou in danger Still let reason sway, And cling to hope this, too, shall pass away. Tempted art thou In all thine anguish lay One truth to heart this, too, shall pass away. Do rays of loftier glory round thee play Kinglike art thou This, too, shall pass away Whateer thou art, wherer thy footsteps stray, Heed these wise words This, too, shall pass away.
Daily prayers can help us keep on the path that leads to eternal life. We are very unlikely to stray if we offer a humble, simple prayer at least each morning and evening to express thanks and to seek divine guidance.
