My mother was a professional sick person; she took a lot of pain pills. There are many people like that. It's just how they are used to getting attention. I always remember she's the daughter of alcoholics who'd leave her alone at Christmas time.
I think my securities far outweigh my insecurities. I am not nearly as afraid of myself and my imagination as I used to be.
If we are suffering illness, poverty, or misfortune, we think we shall be satisfied on the day it ceases. But there too, we know it is false; so soon as one has got used to not suffering one wants something else.

Marilyn vos Savant

Mary J. Blige
My father made me who I am. He gave me a basketball and told me to play with the ball, sleep with the ball, dream with the ball. Just don't take it to school. I used it as a pillow, and it never gave me a stiff neck.
My dad always used to tell me that if they challenge you to an after-school fight, tell them you won't wait-you can kick their ass right now.

My parents used to throw great New Year's Eve parties. They invited such an eclectic mix of showbiz people. All those cool people were always hanging out at our apartment.
I used to drink tons of caffeine. Now I make smoothies with frozen berries and Green Vibrance health powder.

Henry Louis Gates
If you stop and think about it, the form of propulsion used today hasn't changed in over a thousand years... since the invention of fireworks by the Chinese.
I was born in Paris, and it's a beautiful place, but London feels like home. I like the village feeling, I like running in the parks - even the food isn't as bad as it used to be.
C. S. Lewis
John F. Kennedy
