Welcome to the “The Meaning of Life”, which is the classic of Esquire, which stems from a decades of characteristic column, “What I’ve Learned”. We will push 100 men’s contemplation and introspection.
28 foreign men shared their life experience and lessons with ESQUIRE in the What I’ve Learned column. I hope their thinking will inspire you.
Ali (professional boxer)
After I won the gold medal from the Olympic Games, I walked into a restaurant that black people could not enter. I hung the gold medal around my neck and sat down to order, but they said they did not entertain the black people. I said, okay, I won’t eat anymore. They drove me out, I walked by the river and threw my gold medal into the river.
Tony Benneton (singer)
When the people who are in Mo Shoucheng told the creative people what to do, art can no longer be called art.
Dr. Dre (rapper)
Look at others to deconstruct my music, and talk about what he thinks I think when creating. It is very interesting, because they all think wrong.
Biden (the current Vice President of the United States)
I know this sounds aged, but my definition of power is to help others.
Roman Polish (director)
Sex is not a pastime, it is power, it is power, it can change the way you think about problems.
L.A. Reid (musician)
I will not pay attention to Justin Bieber to become a social media phenomenon.
Eshan Hawke (actor)
The biggest advantage of not going to college is that you don’t have to be taught what is right and what is wrong. Many young people’s thoughts are no longer free. I have never been to the Performing Arts School. I learned a lot from Kim Kyrui, Sini Delumeter, and Tanzer Washington. I have been studying.
Alexandro Gonzalez Innia Ritu (Director)
Time is just a concept, but when you are 50 years old, time is no longer a concept, but you can clearly feel what is passing, making you more and more concerned about the present.
Stin (band lead singer)
My job is to sing the song I wrote thirty years ago as a song just written in the afternoon.
Kaili Simon (Casino celebrities, chefs)
The first time I opened the restaurant was in the 1980s, and I set up a table in the kitchen, and many musicians came here for dinner. David Klosbi, Deborah Harry, some members of the Rolling Band came, when I thought I was cooking for my heroes.
Michael Fastand (actor)
The advantage of getting fame is that you can cooperate with the best people in the business field, which I can’t get in a small cost movie.
Ralph Vannes (actor)
I don’t like being isolated, but I like freedom alone. Sometimes being alone or lonely will make you face yourself. This is a self -mediation, which is important to take the initiative to reflect on yourself.
Peter Jackson (director)
Winning some awards, this will not make the next movie of me make easier.
George Clooney (actor)
Don’t stop looking for new troubles.
Francis Coppola (director, screenwriter)
It means good -this is my habit. If I go to cook, I will make a lot of dishes. But the less the art of movies, the better, and my desire is less.
Bailey (Ball King))
My dad once said, “Don’t think you are not a good player. You only need to work harder, you need to be prepared forever, and you need to respect your opponents. Only in this way can you become a great player.”
Tom Ford (fashion designer)
I don’t know what is futile. For me, futile is your narcissistic in the mirror. My life is constantly discovering imperfect and correction. I noticed what problems had the rear heels, toes, skirts, shirts, and pants of the shoes, and then I modified them.
Tom Watson (golf player)
My father taught me, you can only accept the best in the game. If you just happen to play a good ball with your toes, it is just lucky. But if you hit the ball on the front and play a good ball, this is what you should do.
David Beli (photographer)
I don’t like the term “artist” very much. I don’t know what it represents, maybe it is similar to “love”.
Jack Nixelson (actor)
I hate suggestions, unless I give others suggestions.
Enei Morrconne (Master Movie soundtrack)
“Music from composition to arrangement, to command, all from Enniomorricone.” This is a sentence I created. I hope people understand that composition, command band, arrangement, everything is in my control.
Jim Harrison (poet, prose, novelist, screenwriter)
The reason for the writer to go to Hollywood is to make money … If I can write a script within two months, and then it can get the income from my teaching for a year and a half. Why not?
Daniel Read Crifelv (film and television actor)
There is no need to pretend to be cool, this will only make people unhappy. When I was seventeen or eighteen years old, I wanted to make myself a mysterious person, but now I accept myself, just a person who is nervous and nervous.
I remember walking on the podium that the president is about to take care of, and bowed his head to see the crowd I saw the most in my life. I have seen photos of Washington in March, and the crowd walks from Lincoln Memorial Hall to another way. But look down from the Congress Building to the Lincoln Memorial Hall -the place where the crowd is just full. I will not forget that moment. Then you heard the cheers after the president completed his vow. I thought at that moment, like yesterday.
Sean Fan Ning (entrepreneur, investor)
Entrepreneurship is often driven by insecurity. You are solving the problem, but you are also running away from something.
Keis Richard (the main guitarist, one of the founders of The Rolling Stones band)
The most important weapon of rock is a sense of humor.
Bill Mach (talk show actor)
Those who claim that there is no difference between love and sex is called women.
Wes Anderson (director, screenwriter)
I sometimes watch the evaluation of others’ movies. I try not to do this, because I know that good evaluation will make me happy for a while, and bad evaluation will depression. But in the end, good and bad will become blurred.
Michael Kane (actor)
Yes, your fear will decrease with age -because with memory loss, you will forget what you are afraid of!
