Quote of the Day
I just got to feel that whoever I marry has some real regard for me.
Some of my foster families used to send me to the movies to get me out of the house and there I'd sit all day and way into the night. Up in front, there with the screen so big, a little kid all alone, and I loved it. I loved anything that moved up there and I didn't miss anything that happened and there was no popcorn either.
I used to get the feeling, and sometimes I still get it, that I was fooling somebody - I don't know who or what - maybe myself. I have feelings some days where there are scenes with a lot of responsibility, and I'll wish, 'Gee, if only I had been a cleaning woman.'

There is an innocence in admiration; it is found in those to whom it has never yet occurred that they, too, might be admired some day.
Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses.
It is only in adventure that some people succeed in knowing themselves - in finding themselves.
You may make some mistakes - but that doesn't make you a sinner. You've got the very nature of God on the inside of you.
Some are made modest by great praise, others insolent.
The gods had condemned Sisyphus to ceaselessly rolling a rock to the top of a mountain, whence the stone would fall back of its own weight. They had thought with some reason that there is no more dreadful punishment than futile and hopeless labor.
Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice.
Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it's really how it works.
Honestly, I'd love to be remembered as one of the best to ever pick up a mic, but if I'm doing my part to lessen some racial tension I feel good about what I'm doing.
I drank some boiling water because I wanted to whistle.
Anything important is never left to the vote of the people. We only get to vote on some man; we never get to vote on what he is to do.
Who are we? We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people.
Every word, facial expression, gesture, or action on the part of a parent gives the child some message about self-worth. It is sad that so many parents don't realize what messages they are sending.
Japan's very interesting. Some people think it copies things. I don't think that anymore. I think what they do is reinvent things.

Some day, following the example of the United States of America, there will be a United States of Europe.

Life is to be lived. If you have to support yourself, you had bloody well better find some way that is going to be interesting. And you don't do that by sitting around.
