Giada De Laurentiis
A huge dollar bill is the most accurate way to teach children the real motto of the United States: In the Almighty Dollar We Trust...

It certainly is not ruling in our favor.
I was trained as journalist never to use the word 'I,' never to put my own opinion there. In fact, if you had a dollar or a euro for every time I use the word 'I,' you would be a poor person. But this is not true in general. I like the idea of being able to stand away and make a judgement.
Since the outbreak of war, there has been in our country a steady increase in the consumption of spirits, wine and beer. It is estimated that in dollar volume, the annual outlay is now practically double what it was before the war.

Somebody had recorded one of my songs.

William J. Clinton
My parents didn't know much science; in fact, they didn't know science at all.

I had one of the biggest libraries of any kid in school, built on books that cost 50 cents or a dollar.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
I, Joan Crawford, I believe in the dollar. Everything I earn, I spend.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
John F. Kennedy
Leonardo da Vinci
