I think every single imperfection adds to your beauty. I'd rather be imperfect than perfect.
Leadership consists not in degrees of technique but in traits of character; it requires moral rather than athletic or intellectual effort, and it imposes on both leader and follower alike the burdens of self-restraint.
Lewis H. Lapham
Drawing is rather like playing chess: your mind races ahead of the moves that you eventually make.
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
I try to be as honest about what I see and to speak rather than be silent, especially if it means I can save lives, or serve humanity.
I like looking nice, but I always put comfort over fashion. I don't find thin girls attractive; be happy and healthy. I've never had a problem with the way I look. I'd rather have lunch with my friends than go to a gym.
I would rather have been shot straight-up in cold blood-but to be set up? By people who you trusted? That's bad.
Having a positive mental attitude is asking how something can be done rather than saying it can't be done.
The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind.
I invite everyone to chose forgiveness rather than division, teamwork over personal ambition.
Defeat should never be a source of discouragement but rather a fresh stimulus.
Live one day at a time emphasizing ethics rather than rules.
The true delight is in the finding out rather than in the knowing.
If you love someone who is ruining his or her life because of faulty thinking, and you don't do anything about it because you are afraid of what others might think, it would seem that rather than being loving, you are in fact being heartless.
I'd rather regret the things I've done than regret the things I haven't done.
My attitude to peace is rather based on the Burmese definition of peace - it really means removing all the negative factors that destroy peace in this world. So peace does not mean just putting an end to violence or to war, but to all other factors that threaten peace, such as discrimination, such as inequality, poverty.
Aung San Suu Kyi
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
I've always thought Prince Charming in 'Cinderella' was the most boring role; I'd rather be the Wicked Witch.
My passion stems from seeking world peace and finding how we can live together creatively rather than violently.
They are always saying God loves us. If that's love I'd rather have a bit of kindness.
Public opinion polls are rather like children in a garden, digging things up all the time to see how they're growing.
J. B. Priestley
It is almost always the cover-up rather than the event that causes trouble.
Life is too short, and I'm Italian. I'd much rather eat pasta and drink wine than be a size 0.
The secret of happiness is this: let your interests be as wide as possible, and let your reactions to the things and persons that interest you be as far as possible friendly rather than hostile.
We should not say that one man's hour is worth another man's hour, but rather that one man during an hour is worth just as much as another man during an hour. Time is everything, man is nothing: he is at the most time's carcass.
When I'm ready to make a photograph, I think I quite obviously see in my minds eye something that is not literally there in the true meaning of the word. I'm interested in something which is built up from within, rather than just extracted from without.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
