I love the stories of changelings and the thought that the Fey were these ancient, capricious creatures who were tricky and dangerous. I've always preferred the Brothers Grimm faery tales to the Disney fairy tales.
Nothing is as dangerous as an ignorant friend; a wise enemy is to be preferred.
Jean de La Fontaine
You get funky things in Goa, so I like shopping there. Paris and Milan are also my preferred shopping destinations.
It took me some years to clear my head of what Paris wanted me to admire about it, and to notice what I preferred instead. Not power-ridden monuments, but individual buildings which tell a quieter story: the artist's studio, or the Belle Epoque house built by a forgotten financier for a just-remembered courtesan.
The very existence of government at all, infers inequality. The citizen who is preferred to office becomes the superior to those who are not, so long as he is the repository of power, and the child inherits the wealth of the parent as a controlling law of society.
James F. Cooper
Growing up, I was the preferred hairstylist for all of my friends.
Mary J. Blige
I preferred sewing to bossing little children.
Dad and mom would have preferred that I be a doctor, a lawyer, a scientist, or a great humanitarian.
I accepted the interviews and encounters that had to be held with the media, but I would have preferred to work in peace.
I always assume that democracy is the only good form of government, quite frankly, and democracy is always to be preferred.
I would have preferred to be successful here with a piece that cost me a huge amount of money and effort... rather than sending to Bohemia some ordinary works.
I joined the army as a private. I was offered a rank at that time, but I refused. I preferred to remain a private. First of all, I wasn't taken by ranks, and before I knew it, they put me in the most sensitive positions anyway.
Republicans would have preferred the court overturn the health care bill, an act that would have underscored Obama's biggest liability - the perception among voters, including those who like and trust him, that he has been ineffective.
Christ preferred the poor; ever since I have been converted so have I.
John Nelson Darby
I love listening to songs that are from the heart and that touch the heart. So, love is the preferred theme for most of the songs that I sing.
I have no preferred team, but everyone wants to go No. 1 in the draft. Even the guy who gets picked last in the draft wants to go No. 1. But I just know that whoever picks me, I'm going to be excited to play for that team, and I can't wait to see myself in 'Madden' on that team.
Robert Griffin III
When I was a young boy, I preferred cats to dogs. From the age of seven or eight onwards I just felt more comfortable with cats. And I felt more comfortable with girls, I didn't really like hanging out with guys. When I was about ten or eleven, I was friendlier with the girls in my school than with the guys.
I preferred to study those subjects that were of interest to me.
I was kind of an outsider growing up, and I preferred reading to being with other kids. When I was about seven, I started to write my own books. I never thought of myself as wanting to be a writer - I just was one.
To me, emails are a little bit frustrating. I think that the telephone is much preferred because you get the sound of the voice and the interest and everything else you can't see in an email.
T. Boone Pickens
I stupidly ignored education completely. I found it dull and I preferred to cause chaos and have fun. I regret this massively now.
I much preferred Latin to Greek. I loved the language being such a pattern that you could not shift a word without the whole sentence falling to pieces.
I still like being in North of England and I keep a place there. But there are a lot of things about the Continent that are to be preferred. The social institutions work better, women have a better position in society and the food is another thing.
I have always preferred conflict of individuals over the battle of extreme ideologies.
Governments, whether right or left, have become commissioners-in-chief, nudging and cajoling networks into preferred business models without the slightest sensitivity or awareness of what the public wants or the TV industry is capable of.
The government would have preferred not to take a stand, but the constant presence of the Israeli-Arab conflict on our television screens made it an issue that could no longer be avoided.
Jean-Marie Le Pen
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
