I know that a man who shows me his wealth is like the beggar who shows me his poverty; they are both looking for alms from me, the rich man for the alms of my envy, the poor man for the alms of my guilt.
Everything negative - pressure, challenges - is all an opportunity for me to rise.
I love a man with a great sense of humor and who is intelligent - a man who has a great smile. He has to make me laugh. I like a man who is very ambitious and driven and who has a good heart and makes me feel safe. I like a man who is very strong and independent and confident - that is very sexy - but at the same time, he's very kind to people.
My sorrow, when she's here with me, thinks these dark days of autumn rain are beautiful as days can be; she loves the bare, the withered tree; she walks the sodden pasture lane.
The sky is an infinite movie to me. I never get tired of looking at what's happening up there.
K. D. Lang
I'm not a pretty princess, and I'm aware of that, so I like music that is really intense, really bold, and characters that in a way almost have a dark side and are kind of evil because, for me, that's when I feel my strongest and fiercest, when I'm not necessarily the good girl.
To me, the smell of fresh-made coffee is one of the greatest inventions.
A lot of the songs start with an image. I was sitting there playing the guitar and I pictured this old, dirty green car, with the window rolled down, in the hot, hot, hot Texas heat, and this beautiful woman I knew when I was a kid sitting behind the wheel, looking out at me.
My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.
There was one thing my daddy wouldn't tolerate in any shape, form or fashion, and that was being unkind or rude to somebody. That was just very important to my folks. And as it turns out, that was a legacy that he left me that money can't buy, is how to be able to treat people.
The definition of a beautiful woman is one who loves me.
When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'.
There is only one difference between a madman and me. The madman thinks he is sane. I know I am mad.
I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it's the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It's probably the most important thing in a person.
Babies don't need a vacation, but I still see them at the beach... it pisses me off! I'll go over to a little baby and say 'What are you doing here? You haven't worked a day in your life!'
I know not what others may choose but, as for me, give me liberty or give me death.
My diabetes is such a central part of my life... it did teach me discipline... it also taught me about moderation... I've trained myself to be super-vigilant... because I feel better when I am in control.
Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, 'What's in it for me?'
And the greatest lesson that mom ever taught me though was this one. She told me there would be times in your life when you have to choose between being loved and being respected. Now she said to always pick being respected.
The glow of one warm thought is to me worth more than money.
Maybe the bike is more dangerous, but the passion for the car for me is second to the bike.
Photography to me is catching a moment which is passing, and which is true.
My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength.
Nothing can stop me from loving my brother.
When you look at me, when you think of me, I am in paradise.
William Makepeace Thackeray
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Lord, grant that I might not so much seek to be loved as to love.
Francis of Assisi
