I'm still very connected to my family, to the world I grew up in. I understand what it means to be afraid that you can't pay a doctor's bill.

It was how I lived until I was well into my adult years.
I pay for homeowner's insurance, I pay for car insurance, I pay for health insurance.
I came to office promising major ethics reform to end the culture of self-dealing. And today, that ethics reform is a law. While I was at it, I got rid of a few things in the governor's office that I didn't believe our citizens should have to pay for. That luxury jet was over-the-top. I put it on eBay.

William Graham Sumner
I wanted to go to acting school, and I did a few modeling jobs to pay for acting school. I never aspired to be a model. I met lots of photographers, and I learned a lot about light - as a source of love and illumination, light as a gift of love. On film, that's a massive contribution.
When men are romantically interested in you, it's really simple. Just ignore everything they say and only pay attention to what they do.
I'm writing about real things. Real people. Real characters. You have to believe what I write about is true or you wouldn't pay any attention at all. Sometimes it's me, or a composite of me and other people. Sometimes it's not me at all.
Happiness is like a cat, If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you; it will never come. But if you pay not attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing against your legs and jumping into your lap.
It's hard to get movie studios to pay a lot of money for movies that don't have robots or explosions.
It's easy to be famous today. People pay a million dollars to be recognized, but nobody cares about them. They cared about me because I did things other men were afraid to do. That's why my fans identified with me. They were mostly working-class.
I just want to be able to keep my house and pay for my son's school tuition in Los Angeles.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz
