Look, if you ask a child, 'Would you rather have a fulfilled mother or a stay-at-home Sylvia Plath,' they'll pick Sylvia Plath every time. But I think it's really important that children don't feel their parents' emotional lives depend on their success.
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 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.
I would rather be a beggar and single than a queen and married.
One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.
A season of suffering is a small assignment when compared to the reward. Rather than begrudge your problem, explore it. Ponder it. And most of all, use it. Use it to the glory of God.
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've had my heart broken, and it's not fun. But I'd rather have my heart broken than break someone else's heart.
Did Superman really want to save the world, or did he just feel like he had to? Would he much rather be a farmer? Maybe. Would he much rather be hanging out with his dad and his mom and his dog? Probably.
Most people would rather be certain they're miserable, than risk being happy.
I would rather die than do something which I know to be a sin, or to be against God's will.
Joan of Arc
I choose the likely man in preference to the rich man; I want a man without money rather than money without a man.
I've always thought Prince Charming in 'Cinderella' was the most boring role; I'd rather be the Wicked Witch.
I would rather be kept alive in the efficient if cold altruism of a large hospital than expire in a gush of warm sympathy in a small one.
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Support by United States rulers is rather in the nature of the support that the rope gives to a hanged man.
Give me the ready hand rather than the ready tongue.
I love my mom. My mom loves me. We don't have an easy relationship. I don't think we ever will, but I'd rather have a complicated, misunderstood relationship than have no relationship at all.
I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy.
I'd rather be onstage with a pig - a duet with Jennifer Lopez and me just ain't going to happen.
I have the libido of a 15-year-old boy. My sex drive is so high. I'd rather have sex with Brian all the time than leave the house. He doesn't mind.
My mother has always been unhappy with what I do. She would rather I do something nicer, like be a bricklayer.
We live in a dancing matrix of viruses; they dart, rather like bees, from organism to organism, from plant to insect to mammal to me and back again, and into the sea, tugging along pieces of this genome, strings of genes from that, transplanting grafts of DNA, passing around heredity as though at a great party.
For me, just being how old I am, I know I don't want to be a single mom. I really would rather make it a two-person job. But I've also come to terms with not being a mother at all. I'm actually really good with either direction that my life can take as being a valid experience.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
