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.
