Human subtlety will never devise an invention more beautiful, more simple or more direct than does nature because in her inventions nothing is lacking, and nothing is superfluous.
Leonardo da Vinci
What I find problematic is the suggestion that when, say, Madonna adopts an African child, she is saving Africa. It's not that simple. You have to do more than go there and adopt a child or show us pictures of children with flies in their eyes. That simplifies Africa.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
When I buy clothes, I like to buy them in outfits so I know they go together. I like a very simple, natural style. I never like to be the attention getter; I like to come under the radar and be cool about my look, very classic and stylish. I'm not into fads.

What I tell young couples that are getting married is: you're going to have quarrels, and on some things, you're just going to have to agree to disagree.

Nothing more completely baffles one who is full of trick and duplicity, than straightforward and simple integrity in another.
Charles Caleb Colton
