I had developed a relationship with one of the anti-abortion sidewalk counselors who stood in front of my facility. We talked regularly through the fence and she had asked me to go have coffee with her one day. I was impressed with her persistence and, honestly, I thought I would really like her if I got to know her.
My mom is Irish. She is a poet and a humanitarian who believed in ensuring that people around her had a better life.
I consider myself a good person. And I think people perceive me to be, ‘Oh, she’s nice,’ but being a good person, knowing your strengths and working towards those strengths, and encouraging those around you to do the same, that’s a good person.
I have a lot of scars, man. My mother said that a man is not a man unless he has a scar on his face. And what she meant by a scar was some kind of battle that you had to go through, whether it was psychological or physical. To her, a scar was actually beautiful and not something that marred you.
I love my wife, she deserves anything and everything.
One of the key things for me about Madame Walker’s life is that she really does represent this first generation out of slavery when black people were reinventing themselves, and as a woman who was the first child in her family born free, she was trying to figure out a way, and she moved from Delta, Louisiana.
If one accepts the terms of the covenant and obeys God’s law, he or she receives the blessings associated with the covenant.

June Jordan, who died of cancer in 2002, was a brilliant, fierce, radical, and frequently furious poet. We were friends for thirty years. Not once in that time did she step back from what was transpiring politically and morally in the world. She spoke up, and led her students, whom she adored, to do the same.
Lot’s wife, of course, was told not to look back where all those people and their homes had been. But she did look back, and I love her for that, because it was so human.
I’ve met Oprah Winfrey twice, but I want to spend some quality time with her. I want to sit her down and talk at her for a minute about what she means to me and why she means that. Then I have some advice for her, too… I have an idea or two.
I have lexical-gustatory synesthesia. I can taste, and always have tasted, words. I remember when I was a kid and learning to read I mentioned to my mom that certain words I was learning tasted certain ways, thinking everyone was like that, and didn’t understand why she didn’t get what I was saying.
In order to become prosperous, a person must initially work very hard, so he or she has to sacrifice a lot of leisure time.
‘Seanan McGuire’ is my real name; if I’m being silly and third-person about it, she’s a frequently cranky, foul-mouthed Disney Princess on vacation in the real world, where she studies diseases, cuddles reptiles, watches lots of horror movies, and goes to as many corn fields as possible.
Hot Lips changed a lot in eleven years. Initially, Margaret Houlihan behaved as though a man were the only thing that could complete her life, and she didn’t see what richness her life contained. She gained a lot of self-esteem through the years, and she came to realize that what she did, what she offered, was valuable.
The Rose is without an explanation; She blooms, because She blooms.
Both the Beatles and The Rolling Stones broke on the music scene the summer I was in England. I can vividly remember hearing ‘She Loves You’ in August 1963.
Growing up in Alaska, they don’t really teach you to swim there. I learned to swim just a few summers ago with Olympic gold medalist Amanda Beard. She did great, and right after that I went to get scuba certified. I had fun with it. I didn’t really get scared, but some people thought that was a risk.
In the end, the women can be very rebellious, and very capable and all of that, but if she depends on a man economically, she has few possibilities.

My mom always plays Madonna in the car, so I was kind of familiar with what she was into in the ’80s.
If you ask a woman who she is, she’ll tell you who she serves and sometimes what she does. But that isn’t the whole story.

Every mother is like Moses. She does not enter the promised land. She prepares a world she will not see.
I don’t do credit cards ’cause my mama told me back in the day she never dated a man who tows a wallet. ‘Cause that mean he ain’t have enough money.
Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.
I think that any female who gets asked if she’s a feminist… it’s silly… it’s so interesting when people ask females if they’re a feminist. Of course every female wants to be equal!
I would love to do a Black Widow movie. That’s perfect, I would love to do that. That character is really interesting: she doesn’t have any superpowers; she just has extraordinary skills, and the world that she comes from, being this ex-K.G.B. assassin, I find that really fascinating, yeah.
When nature has work to be done, she creates a genius to do it.
A woman would rather visit her own grave than the place where she has been young and beautiful after she is aged and ugly.
‘Triumph over tragedy‘ – how pathetic! I think people are generally freaked out that I’m multifaceted. You don’t hear people saying, ‘Gwyneth Paltrow won an Oscar – and she’s blonde!’
My sister is a lesbian and I want her to have that same feeling. A civil partnership is not the same as marriage. She’s in a serious relationship with a girl I am obsessed with. I would love her to marry her girlfriend because I love her so much.
I always think about the idea that God never gives you more than you can handle, and just the idea that God would be looking at me and thinking, ‘Eh, I think she can handle more.’ And the angels thinking, ‘What are you doing? You’re a lunatic.’ And God being like, ‘No, no, trust me. She can handle this.’
I fell in love immediately with Daisy Ridley. She is just a superstar born.

A really strong woman accepts the war she went through and is ennobled by her scars.
Kitty Wells was the first and only Queen of Country Music, no matter what they call the rest of us. She was a great inspiration to me as well as every other female singer in the country music business. In addition to being a wonderful asset to country music, she was a wonderful woman.
Hear reason, or she’ll make you feel her.
For all my life, I’ve been trying to tell Madam’s story and really it’s a labor of love just to make sure people know about her and the empowerment she gave to other women.
My sister is an opera singer. I grew up going to her recitals. This whole time, I’m like, ‘She’s the singer. I’m just strumming along and yelling.’

I don’t care how hot a girl is – if she doesn’t like animals, it would be a major, major problem.
The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found.
I was with this girl the other night and from the way she was responding to my skillful caresses, you would have sworn that she was conscious from the top of her head to the tag on her toes.

The first time I saw my wife, Marjorie, I was doing stand-up in Memphis, and she was sitting in the front row. Afterward, I walked up and said, ‘Ma’am, I’m going to marry you one day.’ And 15 years later, I did.
I adore my mother, and I am probably a chef because of my mother. She was adventurous.
My favorite electric guitar would have to be my Duesenberg. I’ve named her ‘Dolores,’ and she sings like an operatic menace.
Queen Victoria was a woman of peerless common sense; her common sense, which is a rare gift at any time, amounted to genius. She had been brought up by her mother with the utmost simplicity, and she retained it to the end, and conducted her public and private life alike by that infallible guide.
A lot of people always question, ‘What else can she do, what else can she do?’ And I’m going to show you.
Nature has no principles. She makes no distinction between good and evil.
Lesley Gore‘s part-time field was pop singer, and in her brief but urgent prime, she was the Queen of Teen Angst. She endured heartbreak as a birthday girl betrayed by her beau in ‘It’s My Party,’ savored revenge in the sequel ‘Judy’s Turn to Cry’ and belted the proto-feminist anthem ‘You Don’t Own Me.’
Never guess a woman’s age. Never guess a woman’s weight. Never even talk about weight in front of a woman. And never, ever ask a woman when she’s due.

An entrepreneur assumes the risk and is dedicated and committed to the success of whatever he or she undertakes.

I love Katy Perry! She’s very charming.
She looked at me penetratingly. So I suppose you can figure out what happened next.
There would be more sense in insisting on man’s limitations because he cannot be a mother than on a woman’s because she can be.

Man weeps to think that he will die so soon; woman, that she was born so long ago.
I think Hillary Clinton could do whatever she puts her mind to. I really do. She’s incredibly dedicated to public service, she is smart as a whip, and she’s effective.
My sister and I cooked a lot together; my sister was a very healthy vegetarian. She was always a real good teacher for me about organics, recycling, composting -whenever you hear me talk about it, it’s usually because of my sister’s influence.
My grandmother told me a long time ago, ‘I don’t care if you’re sweeping a porch for a living.’ She said, ‘You need to do your best.’ So I’ve lived by that every single day.
She gave me a smile I could feel in my hip pocket.
My mom was born in Korea – Seoul, Korea, during the ’50s, ’51. She was abandoned; her and my uncle were abandoned. My grandfather was a Seabee and adopted my mom and my uncle, and brought them to Compton in the ’50s. That’s where she was raised.
There is no God, Nature sufficeth unto herself; in no wise hath she need of an author.
Doing voiceovers is so great because even though many people would think it’s just your voice, you really do use all your physicality. I’ve done everything from playing a butterfly to Alice in Wonderland when she’s 10 feet tall, so it allows you to be an actor and build new characters.
For when a woman is left too much alone, sooner or later she begins to think;- And no man knows what then she may discover.
Most of me was glad when my mother died. She was a handful, but not in a cute, festive way. More in a life-threatening way, that had caused me a long time ago to give up all hope of ever feeling good about having had her as a mother.
My mother-in-law thinks I’m more beautiful than all the other faces around. She keeps encouraging me to take up more work.
From my mom telling me ‘no’ to now telling everyone I’m the champion, and she’s so proud of me, and to prove to a lot of people – who didn’t believe in me, who didn’t think I was going to be here – that I’m here, and I did it. It’s been a roller coaster of emotions; it’s amazing.
If I was to pick a cartoon character I am most like, I would say Daisy Duck because she is very stubborn, she has a very feminine sense, and she knows what she likes.
Nobody has communicated with the public more than Lady Gaga. Ever. I trust the audience, and I’m very impressed. As far as they’re concerned, she’s part of their family. The only guy who ever did that was Bing Crosby, years ago.
Hermione uses all these big long tongue twister words. I don’t know what she’s going on about half the time!
I do not believe in abortion at will. I do not believe that if a woman just wants to have an abortion she should… I do believe if you have an abortion you are committing murder.
I look up to a strong woman; maybe that’s why I fell for Gaga. She works incredibly hard and is very strong and inspirational like Mom, with a great work ethic.
My half-sister was born without a cerebellum and is completely disabled. She is my biggest motivator and inspiration, because her situation makes me realize how special life is, and I always want to work twice as hard, enjoy life twice as much so that I can enjoy it for her as well.
Beauty is truth’s smile when she beholds her own face in a perfect mirror.
Wonder Woman is a fighter, better than most, but it’s what she fights for that is important. It’s her vision of a future of peace and acceptance that makes her the right ambassador for everyone.

That’s nice, to be compared to Joanna Lumley. She played my mother once in ‘Ella Enchanted.’ I was one of the ugly sisters, and she was the stepmother, so that was great. I’ll take that comparison, thank you.
My audience went, ‘Wait, why is she singing jazz? What’s going on?’ And then they went, ‘Oh, because she can. Because she loves it.’ And jazz, a music invented by the African-American community, is the greatest art form, I believe, to have ever come out of this country.
When I invite a woman to dinner, I expect her to look at my face. That’s the price she has to pay.
My mom has always been my support system. She taught me to never give up and to keep pursuing my passions no matter what.
Mother is far too clever to understand anything she does not like.
A woman is gentle, soft, delicate, and a man’s position is to protect her, help her up stairs, make sure she’s in the car safely first. Take good care of your woman, and the sky’s the limit!
I grew up believing my sister was from the planet Neptune and had been sent down to Earth to kill me. I believed this because my sister Emily convinced me of it when I was a toddler. I think she’d seen Invasion of the Body Snatchers and her imagination ran away with her. There’s a part of me that still believes it.
There was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools and she was bused to school every day. That little girl was me.
No matter how much you like your local school teacher, he or she is a government agent.
When a woman behaves like a man why doesn’t she behave like a nice man?
Our parents made a lot of sacrifices because dancing is not the cheapest sport. The dresses are expensive, so my mum learned to sew, and she started a catering company to pay for the lessons and the travel abroad for competitions.

My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.

Every single woman is beautifully unique, and the sexiest thing she can do is own her curves, embrace her differences, and stand tall in exactly who she is.

Whenever nature leaves a hole in a person’s mind, she generally plasters it over with a thick coat of self-conceit.
If the agency of the mother in forming the character of her children is, in truth, so considerable, as I think it – if she does so much toward making her son what she would wish him to be – how essential is it that she should be fitted for the beneficial performance of these important duties.
It was a perfect marriage. She didn’t want to and he couldn’t.
Intellectually I know that America is no better than any other country; emotionally I know she is better than every other country.
I do not know if she was virtuous, but she was ugly, and with a woman that is half the battle.
I don’t care what I look like; it’s how people think of me. And I do care how people think of me. I want people to say, ‘Oh, she’s nice,’ rather than, ‘Oh, she’s so pretty.’
Maybe the Burberry woman is undefinable! I think it’s less about what she looks like and more about an attitude.
I would say I’m self-taught, but Corinne Day made me less conscious of myself. I was 15, and she’d make me take off my top, and I’d cry. After five years, you get used to it, and you’re not self-conscious anymore.
I might run from her for a thousand years and she is still my baby child. Our love is so furious that we burn each other out.

If a girl have beef with me, she gon’ have beef with me forever.
I want to do different things. I don’t want to be stuck in the ‘sweet girl’ box. I don’t want to be stuck in the ‘Oh, she is so glamorous‘ box.
My last divorce was in ’68. What made it come to a head was a promise. See, I had promised her that the next year I wouldn’t work as much. But then I got in trouble with the IRS, and I had to continue working just as much to pay the government. So she said I lied, which is something I never did.
The way a woman carries herself and the way she dresses ought to promote the following types of words: modesty, discretion, wisdom, beauty, elegance and refinement, but not sensuality, luxury, extravagance.
Nature never makes any blunders, when she makes a fool she means it.
Many people think that discipline is the essence of parenting. But that isn’t parenting. Parenting is not telling your child what to do when he or she misbehaves. Parenting is providing the conditions in which a child can realize his or her full human potential.
Emily Osment has ‘osteo-old-woman-itis.’ She can’t lift weights or do physical activity but ride her bike and do yoga.
My mother is from another time – the funniest person to her is Lucille Ball; that’s what she loves. A lot of times she tells me she doesn’t know what I’m talking about. I know if I wasn’t her son and she was flipping through the TV and saw me, she would just keep going.
My mom worked at McDonald‘s, and she decided she wanted to make more money, so she got into the management program at McDonald’s. And that’s how you move up the chain. It’s not by demanding that minimum wage is raised; it’s by actually acquiring the skills. That’s the way that people get ahead in life.
Elizabeth Taylor is gorgeous, beautiful, and she still is today, I’m crazy about her.
A good wife always forgives her husband when she’s wrong.

My mother has always encouraged me to do what I love. When I started being interested in fashion, she was very supportive, bringing me to see exhibits and buying me books. And when I started my company, she was right there to help me!
I look up to my mom. She’s a beautiful woman.
Some people ask the secret of our long marriage. We take time to go to a restaurant two times a week. A little candlelight, dinner, soft music and dancing. She goes Tuesdays, I go Fridays.
What hasn’t Barbie been? I don’t think I can create an occupation that she has not done yet.
When Shanthi Ranganathan was the featured turn on ‘Hip Hop Saved My Life With Romesh Ranganathan,’ we learned she didn’t allow him to have a girlfriend until he’d finished university, and she learned – to her unfeigned horror – that he used to sneak girls into the house when she was out.
And she was fair as is the rose in May.
I do read P.D. James because she pays much more attention to character, to a particular atmosphere or setting. But most mystery writers, I think, are controlled by the plot.
I really like Nicki Minaj. I think she’s great.
There are so many young women coming up through the ranks. Adele is an amazing singer. Beyonce has great stage presence. She’s just a beautiful woman. I love how everyone has just taken charge of their lives and careers.
Nobody loves me but my mother, and she could be jivin’, too.
Why is she Mrs. C.J. Walker? It really was a matter of her trying to insist that people respect her, because during that time, white people would call any black woman ‘Sally.’ ‘Aunt Sally.’ So this was like… you can’t call me that.
In the land of my birth I cannot vote, whereas a young person of eighteen can vote. And why? Because he or she possesses that wonderful biological attribute – a white skin.
Today, I give my daughter what I really didn’t have as a kid: all the silly, dumb, extravagant, frilly, nonfunctional toys I can force on her. She probably wants an encyclopedia.
There is danger that we lose sight of what our friend is absolutely, while considering what she is to us alone.
It’s just a whole different thing, and it’s just that my life has been a blessing, and I thank god every day for the gifts that he has given me and for my daughter and to be able to watch her grow and be a part of her joys and her excitement and what she wants to do in life.
I felt ‘Gone with the Wind’ would last five years, and it’s lasted over 70 and into a new millennium. There is a special place in my heart for that film and Melanie. She was a remarkable character – a loving person – and because of that, she was a happy person. And Scarlett, of course, was not.
I’m lucky my wife is a strong woman. She’s one of the stronger people I’ve ever met. It’s hard for me to be away, but I know my home life is fine because my wife is there.
A woman, especially, if she have the misfortune of knowing anything, should conceal it as well as she can.
I feel like the moon is a very beautiful woman. She’s in control.
My daughter, when she was a week old, was diagnosed with congenital heart disease. For the past thirteen years, she’s had four major heart surgeries. She’s a candidate for – and must have – heart replacement surgery in order to have a long life.
Artemis women often have difficult childhoods. She’s the kid who seeks comfort in the woods, or animals, or books. If trapped in an authoritarian family, she blends in to get by – but keeps a fierce autonomy inside her head and heart, looking to the day she breaks free.
When I was 16, I was watching ‘101 Dalmatians,’ and my mom never let me bleach my hair, so I told her I was going to dye my hair like Cruella De Vil; she didn’t believe me. I came home with my hair like this, and she didn’t talk to me for, like, a week. It was really hilarious.
Acting is the most minor of gifts. After all, Shirley Temple could do it when she was four.
You know the AME Church has a history of empowering black people and having an international outlook. So it was the women of the church who began to give Sarah Breedlove an image of herself as something other than an illiterate washerwoman, and she wanted to make her life better, and her daughter’s life better.
My mother is a tall woman – as is everyone in my family. At her prime, she stood 5 feet 9 inches, which is quite unusual for a woman born in 1922.

Every time a woman leaves the workforce because she can’t find or afford childcare, or she can’t work out a flexible arrangement with her boss, or she has no paid maternity leave, her family’s income falls down a notch. Simultaneously, national productivity numbers decline.
‘Mandie and the Secret Tunnel’ – the book and now the movie – pits a very young woman against forces she cannot control and events she cannot possibly know about. She’s in way over her head, and you’re pulling for her from the opening scene.
And then she finally said yes. And we have been married, I want you to know, for 51 years.
Most of my teachers wanted to send me to the principal‘s office. But my fourth-grade teacher once put her arms around me and said, ‘You sure write well.’ And I’ve had good penmanship until this day. She was the only one who ever said anything nice to me. That’s the kind of motivation that students need.
To succeed with the opposite sex, tell her you’re impotent. She can’t wait to disprove it.
