I think women have long been defined by their roles as procreators and wives, and we're expected to serve, take care of, say 'Yes,' and not ruffle any feathers. Women, in particular, are sometimes not allowed to consider who they are outside of the roles that they play.
I've learned a great deal about a certain type of filmmaking. But I have ambitions toward another type of filmmaking that I haven't been allowed to engage in yet.
As smartphones have allowed us to have our computers, emails, social media feeds, and a full surveillance system in our pockets at all times, stories of the law enforcement's unease with that have been popping up in the press. And of course, the ones that become viral videos aren't exactly flattering for law enforcement.
What I love about what I get to do is that I'm allowed to create the stories that I want to tell with minimal interference by some very big corporations like Microsoft and Sprint and EA and BioWare. The advantage that these tech companies have is that they understand the space organically, versus traditional media companies.
I went to college and I never allowed myself to think for an instant that I would have this chance to do this.
Mary Chapin Carpenter
If allowed to run free of the social system, capitalism will attempt to corrupt and undermine democracy, which is after all not a natural state.
John Ralston Saul
Technology has allowed people to make records really cheap. You can make a record on a laptop.
It's a good rule of thumb, it seems to me: if you're not allowed to see where something comes from, don't put it in your mouth.
Jonathan Safran Foer
We are already expected to be the goodie two shoes. I went through that during my junior high schools where I wasn't allowed to watch television. I wasn't allowed to listen to the radio.
I was allowed to ring the bell for five minutes until everyone was in assembly. It was the beginning of power.
Learning to see waste and systematically eliminate it has allowed lean companies such as Toyota to dominate entire industries. Lean thinking defines value as 'providing benefit to the customer'; anything else is waste.
It's ridiculous that people aren't allowed to love who they love, have families, and have the same life as straight people. It's infuriating.
I've made sure that in any situation and with any record label, I'm allowed to write my own music.
Justice is my being allowed to do whatever I like. Injustice is whatever prevents my doing so.
Once a word has been allowed to escape, it cannot be recalled.
I went to the Rudolf Steiner School in New York, and you're not allowed to watch TV.
My father has never once asked me a question, any question. There's a freedom that came from that. It allowed me to create my own way of thinking.
Every Israeli government since 1967, of left or right, has asserted that Jerusalem is Israel's capital and has allowed Israeli Jews to build there.
If you watch a lot of television, the pacing, the quick cutting is so frenetic, but it doesn't always make it funnier. What I'm noticing is that when things are allowed to unspool more slowly, younger crowds really like it. They really appreciate it.
The general interest of the masses might take the place of the insight of genius if it were allowed freedom of action.
I wasn't allowed to go to movies when I was kid; my father was a minister. 101 Dalmatians and King of Kings, that was the extent of it.
It really fascinates me what white people are allowed to write about.
Punk allowed women to stop looking feminine. Oh, the relief.
There are still courses in the United States that I am not allowed to play because of the color of my skin.
Pinochet and Barack Obama both have the same primary goal, and that's to be president and stay president as long as allowed.
Pristine vulnerability is just so boring to me. The performances that I love are ones like Gena Rowland's in 'A Woman Under the Influence,' where women are allowed to be messy and imperfect. It's that kind of woman that has always inspired me to seek roles that are a little out of the box. I just haven't always had the opportunity to do them.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.

The excellence of a gift lies in its appropriateness rather than in its value.
Charles Dudley Warner
