Doubtless the most miserable of men, under the most oppressive government in the world, if allowed the ballot, would use it, if they could see any chance of thereby ameliorating their condition.
I'm not really well educated - other than an art survey course at the High School of Art and Design in New York when I was, like, 15. I don't know the history of art, but I got over intimidation from the art world when I realized that I was allowed to feel whatever I want and like whatever I want.
I love animals and feel very strongly that people should not be allowed to buy a pet if they are not able to look after it.
Not being allowed to use the Internet is kind of like not being allowed to use a telephone.

Helena Bonham Carter
Corporations are economic entities or structures, and yet they're allowed to fund political candidates, and when those candidates are elected, guess who gets in the door first? It's corporations.
My wife's income allowed me to do what I really loved. I realized that women's liberation is men's liberation, too.
I think I am a much better actor than I have allowed myself to be.
I always believed that I never wanted to be an actor. I only did it because I was allowed to do it and I had to do something.
Out of love for His Father and for us, He allowed Himself to suffer beyond the capacity of mortal man. He told us some of what that infinite sacrifice required of Him.

As a child, as a teenager, I was kind of not allowed to wear fashionable clothes.
I never took a grant or borrowed a penny from anybody. It was partially because I didn't really know how to do that, but secondly, my pride never would have allowed me to. In the beginning it was about doing it the right way, on the merits of the music.
I'd love to see the rushes but it's just not allowed because directors and also a lot of actors feel that if they see their work, and the director likes what they're doing, the actor might try to correct their mistakes.
Getting bored is not allowed.
When you write about sports, you're allowed to engage in mischief. Nothing is at stake.
The disaster at the Bay of Pigs intensified Kennedy's doubts about listening to advisers from the CIA, the Pentagon, or the State Department who had misled him or allowed him to accept lousy advice.

Any criticism of Thatcher throws a dangerously absurd light on the entire machinery of British politics. Thatcher's name must be protected, not because of all the wrong that she had done, but because the people around her allowed her to do it.
Steven Patrick Morrissey
Being a Jehovah's Witness, it was really a trip. We had to go from door to door, and we weren't allowed to associate with the other children. It was a lot of rules.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
