Quote of the Day
My coming to faith did not start with a leap but rather a series of staggers from what seemed like one safe place to another. Like lily pads, round and green, these places summoned and then held me up while I grew. Each prepared me for the next leaf on which I would land, and in this way I moved across the swamp of doubt and fear.
As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.
Solomon Ibn Gabirol
Misfortune had made Lily supple instead of hardening her, and a pliable substance is less easy to break than a stiff one.
My favorite way to cook trout is whole, bone-in, on the grill. The fish are stuffed with sliced lemons and herb sprigs, brushed with oil, and cooked over fairly hot coals until the skin is crisp and the flesh is moist and flaky. Go ahead and gild the lily by adding a sauce.
It may be that which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet,' but I should be loath to see a rose on a maiden's breast substituted by a flower, however beautiful and fragrant it might be, that is went by the name of the skunk lily.
If you can figure out where you fit into any particular story, you'll be okay. When you're not quite sure where you fit in, you try to be too many parts of the story. You gild the lily. I see it all the time.

By August 2008, we had left Voikovskaya and moved into a wooden dacha in the artists' colony of Sokol in north-west Moscow. The house was a haven amid the madness of the city: lily of the valley grew near our front gate, Virginia creeper decked the green picket fence.
If you do a smoky eye, chances are you will not want to do a strong lip as well. It's never good to gild the lily.
My daughter, Lily Caitlin, means the most to me in the world.
I have an old dog named Lily, and she's a black lab.

When I did small films like Lily and Buenos Vista, everyone thought my career would be ruined.
I love Beyonce. She's so fierce. I also love Lily Allen, and she was an influence on my music.
She seems to be having a pretty good time despite her worrying. That's Lily.
Growing up, I loved Morticia Addams and Lily Munster on one hand, and Jeannie from 'I Dream of Jeannie' on the other. Two completely different ends of the spectrum, kind of like me.
I don't understand why people make me want to make music that's a join-the-dots thing by numbers. I find it really difficult when people say, 'Aw, you should have made a really big hip hop record, that would have been really good for you' or, 'You should have made a song like Lily Allen, that would have been so great.'
I think Katy B encapsulates young London in a way I never could. She reps London harder than anyone song-wise since Lily Allen.
I was on a show called '12 Miles of Bad Road' with Lily Tomlin - it was an incredible HBO show. We shot 6 episodes, previewed it before the finale of 'The Sopranos;' it was written up as a 'Great New Show on HBO,' and then the whole thing was canned. Gone. Disappeared. That's when I realized anything can happen in this business.
The lily and the rose in her fair face striving for precedence.

My best friend is Lily Aldridge. Her daughter's my godchild.
I loved the late Gilda Radner. I love Carol Burnett and Lily Tomlin.
No, I won't ever write another 'Lily Bard.' I said everything I had to say about Lily.
The record company doesn't know what to do with me, because I'm not a Lily Allen, but I'm not really an indie artist, either. All the best artists have been in the middle.
Bat for Lashes
I have a music video I was in coming out for M83 for their song 'Claudia Lewis.' It's directed by Bryce Dallas Howard, and I play opposite Lily Collins. It's a pretty edgy intergalactic music video.
Then I became aware of the site as the traffic for it became higher. The most recent contact was this girl Lily. She wanted me to shoot her for the site and she actually showed up. There a lot of people who contact me to do a shoot for a website then you never hear from them.
