Gordon B. Hinckley
Bath twice a day to be really clean, once a day to be passably clean, once a week to avoid being a public menace.

R. Lee Ermey

When I was a kid, politicians wanted to avoid talking about religion if they could. John F. Kennedy couldn't duck the issue, being Catholic and all. So how did he address it?

I loved doing all those costume dramas. I didn't think, 'Ooh I've got to avoid being typecast' - you can't ever be dictated to by what other people think. I just do things because I fancy the parts and the directors.
