The lust for comfort, that stealthy thing that enters the house a guest, and then becomes a host, and then a master.
I try to live with the idea that karma is a very real thing. So I put out what I want to get back.
Everything is negotiable. Whether or not the negotiation is easy is another thing.
I think in the end, when you're famous, people like to narrow you down to a few personality traits. I think I've just become this ambitious, say-whatever's-on-her-mind, intimidating person. And that's part of my personality, but it's certainly not anywhere near the whole thing.
My mother says I didn't open my eyes for eight days after I was born, but when I did, the first thing I saw was an engagement ring. I was hooked.
You have good days, you have bad days. But the main thing is to grow mentally.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
I think that's the most important thing you can do to be a real person - is to be honest with yourself.
The way of the Creative works through change and transformation, so that each thing receives its true nature and destiny and comes into permanent accord with the Great Harmony: this is what furthers and what perseveres.
Everything is political. I will never be a politician or even think political. Me just deal with life and nature. That is the greatest thing to me.
Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.
C. S. Lewis
Nature's great masterpiece, an elephant; the only harmless great thing.
Don't ever, ever, believe anyone who tells you that you can just get by, by doing the easiest thing possible. Because there's always somebody behind you who really wants to do what you're doing. And they're going to work harder than you if you're not working hard.

One's family is the most important thing in life. I look at it this way: One of these days I'll be over in a hospital somewhere with four walls around me. And the only people who'll be with me will be my family.
There is probably a perverse pride in my administration... that we were going to do the right thing, even if short-term it was unpopular. And I think anybody who's occupied this office has to remember that success is determined by an intersection in policy and politics and that you can't be neglecting of marketing and P.R. and public opinion.

When you love someone, the best thing you can offer is your presence. How can you love if you are not there?
Thich Nhat Hanh
