I learned a long time ago that reality was much weirder than anyone's imagination.
Hunter S. Thompson
Everyone looks so much better when they smile.
It would be a much better country if women did not vote. That is simply a fact. In fact, in every presidential election since 1950 - except Goldwater in '64 - the Republican would have won, if only the men had voted.
My life comes down to three moments: the death of my father, meeting my husband, and the birth of my daughter. Everything I did previous to that just doesn't seem to add up to very much.
When there's so much left to do, why spend your time focusing on things you've already done, counting trophies or telling stories about the good old days?
Observe constantly that all things take place by change, and accustom thyself to consider that the nature of the Universe loves nothing so much as to change the things which are, and to make new things like them.
It's good to trust others but, not to do so is much better.
I think there's so much feeling among young girls where they feel like they have to be this perfect thing - and they don't. Perfect people don't exist. Sometimes people need to be told it.
You find out in life that people really like you funny. So what do you give 'em? Humor. And then if you show them the other side, they don't like you as much. I find, too, that I can hide behind the idiot's mask being funny, and you never see the sorrow or the pain.
On the broad spectrum of solitude, I lean toward the extreme end: I work alone, as well as live alone, so I can pass an entire day without uttering so much as a hello to another human being. Sometimes a day's conversation consists of only five words, uttered at the local Starbucks: 'Large coffee with milk, please.'
Searching is half the fun: life is much more manageable when thought of as a scavenger hunt as opposed to a surprise party.
The world is too much with us; late and soon, getting and spending, we lay waste our powers: Little we see in Nature that is ours.
It's not about how skinny you are or how much money or how many diamonds you have - that's the fluff that people sometimes look at as being the main thing. It's about understanding that the things that make you fabulous are all inside of you.
Kimora Lee Simmons
That honeymoon phase is so much fun in real life, when you meet and discover somebody new and fall in love and chase them. The pursuit. And that climactic final moment of ultimate togetherness.
I'm a minimalist. I don't really need much to enjoy a good holiday - just my family and the bare essentials.
In general, the art of government consists of taking as much money as possible from one class of citizens to give to another.
When Thomas Edison worked late into the night on the electric light, he had to do it by gas lamp or candle. I'm sure it made the work seem that much more urgent.
Your body is like a piece of dynamite. You can tap it with a pencil all day, but you'll never make it explode. You hit it once with a hammer: Bang! Get serious. Do 40 hard minutes, not an hour and half of nonsense. It's so much more rewarding.
I've grown over the years and I know how to adapt to situations, where I can go into a situation where there's a crowd of people and just take over. But pretty much I'm off to myself. And I'm totally committed to the game of football. That's why I've had so much success.
I learned hard lessons in life; I had to because I had so much happen: My mother died my sophomore year in high school. The next year, same day, my brother dropped dead. Two years after that, I got married because my girlfriend got pregnant. The year after my wedding, my father - who I had only recently met - died.
My girlfriend and I never let each other forget how much we love each other. It's all about reminding the other person how important and special she is to you.
I try to open up my heart as much as I can and keep a real keen eye out that I don't get sentimental. I think we're all afraid to reveal our hearts. It's not at all in fashion.
My mother never gave up one me. I messed up in school so much they were sending me home, but my mother sent me right back.
People are pretty much alike. It's only that our differences are more susceptible to definition than our similarities.
Governing a great nation is like cooking a small fish - too much handling will spoil it.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
