Quote of the Day

I think sometimes when children grow up, their parents grow up. Mine grew up with me. We coexist. I don't try to change them anymore, and I don't think they try to change me. We agree to disagree.
A transvestite spends her entire life trying to look as feminine as possible and I have clearly spent mine celebrating my masculinity.
A good friend of mine was Lucy Ball. Her mother and my mother were best friends.
I live my life like anybody else, and people choose to write about mine. And what they write I can't control - when they write lies at least - because the laws can't really protect you unless you can prove malicious intent. So I just choose not to read it.
I know it won't be eight medals again. If you want to compare me to that, that's your decision, not mine. I'm going out there to try to accomplish the things that I have in my mind and in my heart.
Mine is the first generation able to contemplate the possibility that we may live our entire lives without going to war or sending our children to war.
If you apply reason and logic to this career of mine, you're not going to get very far. You simply won't.
Mine is the horny hand of toil.
John Singer Sargent
I know that there are a lot of people out there with stories far worse than mine but you, too, can make it. To those of you who have, welcome to life. I celebrate you.
I used to do the beat box. A friend of mine, he was the rapper and after, we'd be doing a block party or something or a house party, and he's gettin' all the attention and I'd end up with a handful of spit, you know, from doing the beats.
You'd think a guy who has broken 35 bones in his body would have a high pain threshold, but mine is pretty low. I got hit in the shin with a golf ball once, and it almost brought tears to my eyes. I've had broken bones that didn't hurt as bad.
A friend of mine has a big farm in the desert, and she picks up feathers and roadkill for me, then makes it into clothes. I think it's cool to wear roadkill. If I died and somebody wanted to wear my teeth around their neck to VMAs, I'd feel honored.
I will give my life to whoever in need, to any dear friend of mine.
Public appearances are a headache. I hold mine down to a minimum.
But, at the moment, when I step on the pitch, when I have the ball I know it's mine. It's just a feeling.
Mine is just a simple old human story - of one person trying, with great rigor and discipline, to comprehend her personal relationship with divinity.
A well-tailored suit is important - and I don't like wearing belts with mine - it should be tailored to your body.
I don't think you can ever assess your work. I don't think Turgenev could assess his any more than I can assess mine, and his didn't have a social impact as much as great literary impact.
Rita Mae Brown
Everybody's got a job to do, and I do mine as best I can.
Mountaineering has always been a huge hobby of mine.
In order to be responsible, you need some discipline in your life. For a while I lost mine.
There couldn't be better parents than mine, loving yet strict. They disciplined with love. A child without discipline is, in away, a lost child. You cannot have freedom without discipline.
I have had lots of friends who've been affected by Aids and a very good friend of mine, Oscar Moore, died of Aids and I was with him in his last year quite a bit. And of course he was a man living in a very rich culture with a wealthy family who was able to afford health care.
I like consistency. If you've had a childhood like mine, you want some things you can rely on to stay the same.
Drink to me only with thine eyes, And I will pledge with mine; Or leave a kiss but in the cup And I'll not look for wine.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
