Esquire "What I've Learned" Quotes

Now, Esquire magazine isn't one I read, but I came across these quotes the other day and love them. It is based on a series of questions asked by Esquire, sort of a "first thought when I say..." and their responses are great!

The stupidest argument to have with somebody is when you tell them what to like. How can somebody argue with you about what you like? "I want hot sauce." "Hot sauce? How can you like hot sauce?" Hey, it's my mouth.

Sometimes when you're trying too hard to follow a rule, you're doing yourself more harm.

There's a line in the film: "When the power of love takes over the love of power, that's when things will change." And it's true.

Julia Child
People are uncertain because they don't have the self-confidence to make decisions.
I'm awfully sorry for people who are taken in by all of today's dietary mumbo jumbo. They are not getting any enjoyment out of their food.
Moderation. Small helpings. Sample a little bit of everything. These are the secrets of happiness and good health. You need to enjoy the good things in life, but you need not overindulge.
If you're in a good profession, it's hard to get bored, because you're never finished — there will always be work you haven't yet done.
