Quote of the Day
- Page 10
I would rather be a beggar and single than a queen and married.
Age should not have its face lifted, but it should rather teach the world to admire wrinkles as the etchings of experience and the firm line of character.
Don't let anything stand in the way of you claiming and manifesting the life that you choose rather than the life you have by default.
The big cop-out would be to accept popularity rather than opting to try to create potent work. It's so easy to do the popular thing, the expected thing, and that's where you start to cheat yourself - and your fans, in the end - because there's an inherent dishonesty in pandering and dishing up what everyone's expecting.
I've never seen the Osbournes, I've never seen Paris Hilton. I'd rather read than watch reality TV. I'd rather live life than watch somebody else living it.
Ideas are powerful because they allow us to see the world as it could be, rather than what it is.
The irrationality of a thing is no argument against its existence, rather a condition of it.
I would rather lose a good earring than be caught without make-up.
Defeat should never be a source of discouragement but rather a fresh stimulus.
In our work and in our living, we must recognize that difference is a reason for celebration and growth, rather than a reason for destruction.
Me, I'd prefer to have a good reputation rather than getting press for being scandalous, getting drunk in public, staying out late and so on.
I'd much rather be known as some curvy Kate than as some skinny stick.
Felicity, the companion of content, is rather found in our own breasts than in the enjoyment of external things; and I firmly believe it requires but a little philosophy to make a man happy in whatever state he is.
I do believe in God. But you won't find me visiting temples every now and then. I believe in self-realization. Peace of mind matters a lot to me. What's the point in doing something just for the sake of it? I'd rather do something I like doing as long as I'm being true to myself.
I have always regarded Mr. Bean as a timeless, ageless character, and I would rather he be remembered as a character mostly in his 30s and 40s.
If I could, I would not do anything else. I'd just be in the studio for my whole life. I would never go to parties, events, and red carpets. I would rather just be in the studio for the whole time. I don't even care. Nobody has to know what I look like. I just want to make music.

I wanted to be a serious actress rather than a pretty face.

Some guys travel with expensive Louis Vuitton luggage but it gets all scratched up under the plane. I'd rather not spend too much money on something that's just going to get messed up.
Man's mind is not a container to be filled but rather a fire to be kindled.
One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.
I would rather drudge out my life on a cotton plantation, till the grave opened to give me rest, than to live with an unprincipled master and a jealous mistress.
Harriet Ann Jacobs
