When you look at the fittest, leanest populations like Japan and Scandinavia, they don’t even go to the gym. The average person in Sydney takes 11,000 steps a day, and the average person in Houston does 4000. Guess who is going to be leaner, regardless of their diet?
Can I jump over two or three guys like I used to? No. Am I as fast as I used to be? No, but I still have the fundamentals and smarts. That’s what enables me to still be a dominant player.

Best thing for a government to do is to eliminate obstacles like filing registrations, getting licences, and so on… tedious steps slow everything down.

I think the problem people get into is they want to go into the gym and look at other people’s workouts, or they want to lift what other people are lifting. I started out really small. I actually did a lot of research, and I learned all about working out. So take gradual steps.
Hitting the road with Steps is going to be so much fun.
In Degas’s compositions with several dancers, their steps, postures and gestures often resemble the almost geometric, formal letters of an alphabet, whereas their bodies and heads are recalcitrant, sinuous and individual.

Any man who steps in the ring, I give them respect because we’re trying to feed our family and this is how we do it.

I remember in the spring of 1971, a hundred thousand people converged on the Pentagon in June of 1971. They threw blood; I guess it was goat’s blood or something, on the steps to the Pentagon. People were being accused of being murderers and baby killers. You just can’t imagine the civic outrage.
Since 9/11 we have somehow come to accept the ‘radicalization’ narrative, which basically holds that people become terrorists through a series of consecutive, traceable steps laid out for them by large international Islamic organizations. Reality is messier, and also smaller.

There are no mistakes. The events we bring upon ourselves, no matter how unpleasant, are necessary in order to learn what we need to learn; whatever steps we take, they’re necessary to reach the places we’ve chosen to go.
The problem is that once I start on a song and get a rough idea of where I might go with an arrangement, I try dozens, sometimes hundreds, of different things on a song. The bass, the backing guitars, the lead guitars, the keyboards. It’s a long process. It’s like 100 steps forward and 99 steps back.
Take ’39 Steps’. When I finished writing it, I counted the number of measures in the composition. I always do this because I am interested in the length of a song. So I counted this one a couple of times because 39 is an unusual number of measures for a song.
My travels led me to where I am today. Sometimes these steps have felt painful, difficult, but led me to greater happiness and opportunites.

Some people see life as many steps up and try to forget where they are coming from, you understand? A little step in life on a commercial or a material level is a good step, but a big step does not mean a strong step – you tend to lose your roots – and if you don’t be careful, you can fall.
Broadway is the same as Hollywood. Every few years we say we reached the mountaintop, then we take two steps back.

God can be realized through all paths. All religions are true. The important thing is to reach the roof. You can reach it by stone stairs or by wooden stairs or by bamboo steps or by a rope. You can also climb up by a bamboo pole.
We’ve got to make sure tech companies – all of them – aren’t taking steps that will place content beyond the reach of the courts.

Extraordinary measures were required and I realize that not all of these steps were popular.
When I did lose weight, by the way, I did it because my doctor recommended it. My secret isn’t a pill. I took individual steps to eat more healthily, cutting down on unhealthy snacking and the empty calories of alcohol.

It’s about keeping my eyes on the prize. That comes in steps. So for me to get where I really want, I have to take it one step at a time and I have to focus on the plate of food that’s in front of me. I can’t be looking down the road or at everyone else’s plate.

I think the new spirituality will be a spirituality that’s not based on a particular dogma. And that steps away from the old spiritual paradigm that we have created on this planet, which comes from a thought that there is such a thing as being better.
‘Boldface’ is a pilot term, a magic word to describe the procedures that could, in a crisis, save your life.

Running up a steep hill or up steps are fantastic ways of building explosive strength.
I’ve been playing football for a while, but Guardiola really made me a better player.

I’ve thought about bringing my children to retrace my own steps of the morning of September 11, 2001, but they’re too young for that. Maybe when they’re twenty.
