The institution of marriage works better when there's a spiritual connection. If you're marrying just for the sake of the woman, then you may lose interest in each other very soon. When we marry in the interest of the Holy Spirit with the intention of serving God and humanity, then it gives a much larger perspective.~A. R. Rahman

Marie Curie is my hero. Few people have accomplished something so rare - changing science.

And the prejudice against her as a woman.~Alan Alda


Time Woman Science

Alpha men are very turned on by the alpha woman, really high chemistry, really fun to work with, probably really fun to have affairs with, but there's not sustainable harmony in that lack of complement. There can only be one person in the driver's seat.~Alanis Morissette

Men are literally lying in bed with their wives when the marriage is essentially over, thinking, 'I've got to get the hell out of here', and have a fantasy woman in mind.

Marriage Time Woman

Five cats and a woman. That is all I need in life.~Alejandro Jodorowsky


Life Woman Cats

I believe in mysticism, with an interior goal, and you are your own temple and your own priest.

Religion is too old now; it's from another century, it's not for today.~Alejandro Jodorowsky


Woman Today Religion

Look at the shows that are really successful on Broadway. They're musicals. They're things that a woman will pick out the tickets for, or a man will buy the tickets with a woman in mind. It's a date. It's boyfriend-girlfriend, husband-wife. That's what the theater in New York has become.~Alec Baldwin


Woman Man Mind

No woman ever hates a man for being in love with her, but many a woman hate a man for being a friend to her.~Alexander Pope

Woman Feminism She

The notion that a contemporary woman must look mannish in order to be taken seriously as a seeker of power is frankly dismaying. This is America, not Saudi Arabia.~Anna Wintour


Woman Power America

Bananas are great, as I believe them to be the only known cure for existential dread. Also, Mother Teresa said that in India, a woman dying in the street will share her banana with anyone who needs it, whereas in America, people amass and hoard as many bananas as they can to sell for an exorbitant profit. So half of them go bad, anyway.~Anne Lamott


Mother Woman Great

To me idealized characters are so boring to play, especially having grown up in the classical theater. That's a great experience, but as a woman, especially, you've played a lot of idealized characters. So when you've got someone who has weaknesses as well as strengths, that's interesting.~Annette Bening


Experience Woman Great

I do not choose characters because I think, 'Wow, that woman is so strong.' I chose these characters with utmost conviction because I think they were realistic enough to exist, and I really liked the scripts.~Anushka Sharma

I have loved eight women in my life. I remember every woman's face.~Adam Ant

When virtue and modesty enlighten her charms, the lustre of a beautiful woman is brighter than the stars of heaven, and the influence of her power it is in vain to resist.~Akhenaton

Woman Day End

As a black woman, I feel like I have a unique experience that we don't often see in media portrayals of the South.~Angie Thomas

They always come back when they learn that not every woman's gonna treat them this good.~Angie Stone

I do not believe that I fell in love with a woman because I was abused.~Anne Heche


Love Woman Believe

Recently I read the stories I wrote in my early 20s, to put in a volume. And here is this brittle young woman, writing about marriage as, not the worst thing, but the most boring thing that could happen to a person. Now I think I was wrong. I like to be proven wrong.~Anne Enright


Marriage Woman Writing

It is a woman's nature to be constant - to love one and one only, blindly, tenderly, and for ever - bless them, dear creatures!~Anne Bronte


Love Nature Woman

After all those years as a woman hearing 'not thin enough, not pretty enough, not smart enough, not this enough, not that enough,' almost overnight I woke up one morning and thought, 'I'm enough.'~Anna Quindlen


Women Morning Woman

New York City has finally hired women to pick up the garbage, which makes sense to me, since, as I've discovered, a good bit of being a woman consists of picking up garbage.~Anna Quindlen


Women Good Woman

Here is the real domino theory - gay man to gay man, bisexual man to straight woman, addict mother to newborn baby, they all fall down and someday it will come to you.~Anna Quindlen

Friendship Woman Man

A woman is like an actress: she's always onstage.~Azzedine Alaia


Woman She Always

Vinyl is democratic, as surely as the iPod is fascist. Vinyl is representational: It has a face. Two faces, in fact, to represent the dualism of human nature. Vinyl occupies physical space honestly, proud as a fat woman dancing.~Adam Mansbach


Nature Woman Space

When I originally came from 'Cheetah Girls,' I was making music that was real to me but not believable. I think there was a disconnect there. I am a grown woman, and I've been through a lot. The most important thing about my music is that we don't jump the gun and throw anything out there.~Adrienne Bailon


Music Woman I Am

A woman's desire is either terrifying, or it's ignored.~Alexander Chee

Lingerie is my next love after clothing; I think it is what is worn underneath that really inspires a woman to feel beautiful in her clothes - that inner, secret glamour.~Alice Temperley


Love Beautiful Woman

I think fashion can always date, but I think if a woman has elegance, she doesn't date.~Alice Temperley


Woman Fashion Think

When I ask my medical students to describe their image of a woman who elects to birth with a midwife rather than with an obstetrician, they generally describe a woman who wears long cotton skirts, braids her hair, eats only organic vegan food, does yoga, and maybe drives a VW microbus.~Alice Dreger


Food Woman Medical

I think that a woman that is elegant herself is somebody who can dress herself easily and effortlessly.~Alice Temperley


Woman Dress Think

I just find P.J. Harvey so mesmerising to watch because she remains unfathomable. She is the kind of woman who makes you rue the day you weren't born her. She always seems to be the cat that walks alone, and you don't feel you are supposed to know her.~Alison Moyet


Woman Day Alone

I have lost and put on big batches of weight in my life many, many times. But what concerns me is the idea of being an obese old woman, because I don't like the idea of being physically incapable in someone else's hands.~Alison Moyet


Life Woman Lost

Box office is one of the strongest tools we have toward preserving our ability to make our movies. We really can make a difference by purchasing a ticket each opening weekend to a movie made by a woman, even if you don't like the movie or the filmmaker and even if you don't see the film.~Allison Anders


Woman Make A Difference

The women I cast have to embody all sorts of contradictions... I have to find the right woman to speak to other women.~Allison Anders


Women Woman Speak

I walked into an international economics tutorial, and the professor said, 'I don't know how to teach a woman.' I said, 'It's the same as teaching a man.' I just sat down, and he had no choice but to start teaching. When I handed in my first paper, I think that shut him up.~Allison Schroeder


Woman Man Choice

I think you leave your imprint on every screenplay. I like to bring my experience as a woman to all my female characters that hopefully makes them a little more layered and complex.~Allison Schroeder


Experience Woman You

I've been rewritten on past projects and thought, 'That's not what she was - she was this really powerful woman, and there's nothing wrong with that.' I'm going to keep writing them, and hopefully people will start making them.~Allison Schroeder


Woman Past Writing

I think maybe the only time I think of being a woman... is being on the road and making sure my musicians are fed and they sleep. 'Are you OK? Do you need some water? Are you hungry? Can I get you a cookie?' I'm not sure all the men bandleaders do that.~Anat Cohen


Time Woman Water

I have terrible handwriting. I now say it's a learning disability... but a nun who was a very troubled woman hit me over the fingers with a ruler because my writing was so bad.~Andrew Greeley


Learning Woman Writing

Almost all the ideas we have about being a man or being a woman are so burdened with pain, anxiety, fear and self-doubt. For many of us, the confusion around this question is excruciating.~Andrew Cohen


Fear Woman Pain

I am already inherently full and complete as I am. Man doesn't need woman and woman doesn't need man in order to experience his or her inherent fullness.~Andrew Cohen


Experience Woman Man

I'm suspicious of any man or woman who approaches their own liberation with any kind of gender bias.~Andrew Cohen


Woman Man Gender

The excitement that you were feeling about a special, unique path for yourself as a woman is all part of your identification with and attachment to being female. And that's ultimately all ego.~Andrew Cohen


Woman Path Yourself

It's every woman's tragedy, that, after a certain age, she looks like a female impersonator. Mind you, we've known some lovely female impersonators, in our time.~Angela Carter


Time Age Woman

It is far easier for a woman to lead a blameless life than it is for a man; all she has to do is to avoid sexual intercourse like the plague.~Angela Carter


Life Woman Man

In the mythic schema of all relations between men and women, man proposes, and woman is disposed of.~Angela Carter


Women Woman Man

A woman should be like a single flower, not a whole bouquet.~Anna Held

Marriage Good Woman

Not only is it OK for a woman to write about a tough guy, but it might even help sell him.~Ann Maxwell


Woman Help Tough

Too many times, adults walk into situations, and people have already put them in a box: 'Oh, you write comedy.' Or, 'You're the development woman.' And it's not just our profession. It's hard to look at someone and say, 'What else is inside?'~Anne Sweeney


Woman People Walk

Last Friday night, I Twitted a photograph of myself that I intended to send as a direct message as part of a joke to a woman in Seattle. Once I realized I posted to Twitter I panicked, I took it down and said that I had been hacked. I then continued with that story, to stick to that story which was a hugely regrettable mistake.~Anthony Weiner


Myself Woman Night

I believe in the difference that a man or woman can make at the top of an organisation. Once you have a really good guy in place at the top, the next most important thing is continuity of management as opposed to a revolving door.~Anthony Pratt


Good Woman Management

Contessa, a.k.a. Baboushka, was a leader in the Russian mafia. Hardnosed, ruthless... very much her own woman. She's a martial artist, marksman, and good with guns and gadgets as any good pulp spy should be. She's supported by her constant companion Gyorgy Gyorgyov, an old friend of her family who was, in fact, her KGB handler and inventor.~Antony Johnston


Family Good Woman

When someone says 'comic book movies', what they inevitably mean is a summer superhero blockbuster, with heavily-muscled and tightly-gluted men (plus the occasional token woman) in tight-fitting costumes punching the living daylights out of one another for two hours.~Antony Johnston


Woman Summer Men

If, however, you have richer pursuits in mind and know that no woman should be judged by how she looks - that everything she brings to the party is more important than the size of her arse - then refuse to be sucked into the never ending whirligig of self-doubting, self-hating madness that is stop-start dieting and crazy new exercise regimes.~Arabella Weir


Woman Crazy Mind

The man of the house can destroy the pleasure of the household, but he cannot make it. That rests with the woman, and it is her greatest privilege.~Arthur Helps


Woman Greatest Man

Listen to the pregnant woman. Value her. She values the life growing inside her. Listen to the pregnant woman, and you cannot help but defend her right to abortion.~Ayelet Waldman


Life Woman Value

It seems to me if you want something badly enough, whether you're a man or a woman, you'll do whatever you have to do to get it.~Aaron Eckhart


Woman Man Me

I remember watching Margaret Cho with my grandmother on TV. She was my hero, not only because she was funny, but because she showed me that it's okay to be yourself, that it's okay to be a brash yellow girl and to be a strong and brave woman.~Awkwafina


Funny Woman Be Yourself

I think it's important for people to understand that as a woman, I can only rap about the parts I have.~Awkwafina


Woman People Important

Quite frankly, I think if a man or a woman likes their American job, wherever they were born, they should be able to keep that job. We need a clear path to citizenship for workers who are already here and a fair and efficient on-ramp for those who want to come here.~Aaron Schock


Woman Path Man

And the woman who could win the respect of man was often the woman who could knock him down with her bare fists and sit on him until he yelled for help.~Agnes Smedley


Respect Woman Man

I would love to play Wonder Woman on the big screen.~Adrianne Palicki


Love Woman Play

But I see no reason why a woman should not grow and develop in all those outlets which are suited to her nature, it matters not at all what they may be.~Agnes Smedley


Nature Woman May

The press has always written that I am a recluse and a mysterious woman, but I am more down-to-earth than they think.~Agnetha Faltskog


Woman I Am Think

Not just in modeling, but in society, there's so much pressure about what a woman should be, and, of course, it's just so unobtainable. You can never become that thing, because it's such a projection.~Agyness Deyn


Woman Society You

It is so inspiring when you come across a woman who is very strong and dedicated and is amazing at what they do. That's how I feel about Meryl Streep. You watch her, and you can't help but notice all of that about her. She's so influential.~Agyness Deyn


Woman Strong Amazing

The only way marriage can work is if a man respects the woman and she is a thinking woman and he wants to work on the marriage.~Al Goldstein


Work Marriage Woman

There is a cliche that men want their women to be ladies in public and hookers behind closed doors. I want my woman to be the sharper image robot so that she can be turned off.~Al Goldstein


Women Woman Men

I do not believe that defending traditional marriage between one man and one woman excludes anybody or usurps anybody's civil rights and denies anybody their civil rights.~Alan Autry


Marriage Woman Man

I also like the whole idea of fairy tales and folk tales being a woman's domain, considered a lesser domain at the time they were told.~Alice Hoffman


Time Woman Fairy

I grew up with brothers. I love men. Of course it's hard to be a woman in a man's world.~Allison Janney


Love Woman Man

I'm currently shooting 'Ava's Possessions,' which is a really fun movie about a woman who gets possessed by a demon. I call it 'Memento' meets 'The Exorcist.'~Alysia Reiner


Woman Fun Shooting

For me, I am a really tall woman, and I am really tall in heels, and I feel bigger, and I like being bigger. I think I was a king in a past life.~Alysia Reiner


Life Woman Past

I don't like getting dressed up. It's hard because as a woman, as an actor, the whole world wants you to enjoy dressing up.~Andrea Riseborough


Woman World Enjoy

This is a career about images. It's celluloid; they last for ever. I'm a black woman from America. My people were slaves in America, and even though we're free on paper and in law, I'm not going to allow you to enslave me on film, in celluloid, for all to see.~Angela Bassett


Woman Law People

The hardest thing in my industry is longevity, getting your next job. It's hard to get the first job, but it's so much harder to get the sixth or seventh as a woman.~Anna Faris


Woman Job Industry

I think whenever people talk about the 'Anna Sui woman,' they're talking about someone that's probably kind of more downtown, and there's always like this ambiguity: Is she a good girl, or a bad girl?~Anna Sui


Good Woman Girl

At the point when I wanted to become a designer, I didn't think about, 'Oh, but I'm a woman,' just like didn't think about like, well, 'I'm Chinese' or that 'I'm in Michigan.' You know, none of those things were obstacles to me. I just had this idea that this is what I had to do.~Anna Sui


Woman Obstacles Me

My first real awareness of Chechnya came when I was a college student studying in Russia. I arrived in St. Petersburg about two months after Anna Politkovskaya was assassinated for her reports on Chechnya. I lived with an elderly woman and her grown children in an apartment that was not too far from the neighborhood military cadet school.~Anthony Marra


Children Woman School

I'm an absolute fan of Angela Bassett. I think she's a great, great actress. In the biopics, she is so moving. She's very rare. It's something that doesn't happen that much, to see an actress inventing a new way of showing 'woman' onscreen, and a new way of being beautiful.~Arnaud Desplechin


Beautiful Woman Great

I think a primal role of a man in a relationship is to protect his woman.~Armie Hammer


Relationship Woman Man

For me and my husband, one of my biggest peeves is that I can't stand for an old friend or a woman to walk in the room and just run up and speak to my husband, but they don't talk to me.~Ashton Shepherd


Woman Husband Walk

You'll see that the strong, the affirmative, the positive voice in any of the plays I've written is that of a woman. My men are, well, not quite worthless, but they are certainly weak, and that reflects the reality I grew up with and what I think has in a sense shaped me.~Athol Fugard


Positive Woman Strong

Each individual garment has its own customizations based on a collaboration between us and the designer. We say what we think our woman wants, and they say, 'This is what we think we can do with our production.'~Aslaug Magnusdottir


Woman Collaboration Think

Driven to design by what she refers to as the lack of glamour in the industry, Bar Or creates for the modern woman who is a fashion risk-taker, one who is confident and, perhaps, has a larger than life personality.~Aslaug Magnusdottir


Life Woman Personality

We want every woman to have something unique, a wardrobe she can really make her own.~Aslaug Magnusdottir


Woman Unique Want

The world around me has changed, and I have learned to adapt but not change. But I'm changing into the woman I am meant to be.~Aurora


Change Woman I Am

When we did Dynasty, it was the clothes. I think the clothes affected every woman around the world. I got so many letters, I think we made the designer a millionaire!~Aaron Spelling

The orthodox Jewish faith practically excludes woman from religious life.~Abraham Cahan


Life Woman Faith

There's no one on this earth taken less seriously in a leadership context than a young woman - everything is against you.~Abigail Disney


Leadership Woman Earth

'All-Star Wonder Woman' would get worked on in what is laughably referred to as my 'spare time.' I just ended up with less and less time to devote to it. Eventually, we all realized that it was taking forever, so we just all agreed to hold off on it 'til the time was right to do it properly. Well, I still have a contract; DC never tore it up.~Adam Hughes


Time Woman Wonder Woman

If you're funny as a woman, people think it might be because someone else helped you.~Alice Lowe


Funny Woman People

I vividly remember watching women in films when I was nine or 10, picturing them being what I'd be like as an adult. I had these real female crushes on certain actresses. And I'd watch them, thinking, 'One day, I'll be that. One day I'll be a woman.'~Alicia Vikander


Women Woman Day

Really, I am entirely material driven. If a project appeals to me, I will try to find the right writer and director. And that may be someone I've worked with before, or it may not. It may be a woman, or it may not.~Alison Owen


Woman May I Am

With 'Suffragette,' I felt that a female writer would be good, and considering the subject matter, who would be better to write the script than Abi Morgan? She was the first choice, and she happens to be a woman.~Alison Owen

Work Woman Her

Of course, like any woman, I look in the mirror and think, 'Oh, wouldn't I look better with a bit of Botox?' But you've got to find comfort in your own skin. I've watched women stretch themselves year after year until their faces are no longer recognisable.~Amanda Donohoe


Women Woman Mirror

If you build a career on being a beautiful young woman, that's going to be a short career. I have to establish I can act. I don't want to have to visit the plastic surgeon every two years.~Amanda Donohoe

Woman Hair Fake

It was darn nigh impossible for women in rock in the '70s. There wasn't a mold if you were a woman and you were in the entertainment in the '70s. You were probably a disco diva or a folk singer, or simply ornamental. Radio would play only one woman per hour.~Ann Wilson


Women Woman Impossible

Why can't a woman be a little cooler in her emotions and a little quieter and more repressed without it being a huge thing? I've actually always quite enjoyed that, to tell you the truth.~Anna Torv


Woman Truth Emotions

Lives in previous centuries for women are largely a matter of class. It would have been fun to have been a rich, privileged woman in the 18th century, but no fun at all to be her maid.~Antonia Fraser


Women Woman Fun

A woman can beat any man; it's difficult to imagine another kind of sport where a woman can beat a man. That's why I like chess.~Alexandra Kosteniuk


Woman Man Chess

Aaliyah revolutionized what it was to be a young black woman in America. She made it OK to be a nerd and to be a tomboy. She made it OK to wear leather and chains. She was the first black girl with an ombre. She was so far ahead of everything and everyone. It was just who she was. She was an innovator, but she didn't even realize it.~Alexandra Shipp

Yeah, I'm a geek. I read sci-fi and I watch sci-fi films. I love my computer and I love to fix it. I'm a total nerd. I literally am a 12-year-old geeky boy trapped in a 32-year-old woman's body.~Amber Benson


Love Woman Body

Everyone thinks I have a coffee plantation in Sierra Leone, but I have a cashew crop project. I wrote about a woman who owns a coffee plantation!

Women Woman Man

A man who's never seen war is like a woman who's never given birth - soft in the head.~Andrei Platonov

So many heroes are driven by destiny. Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, they were all chosen and born to heroism. Even with Batman, it doesn't feel like Bruce could do anything else. His whole life was leading him to become the Dark Knight.~Andrew Kreisberg


Life Woman Destiny

It's truly an honor to get to write Superman and Batman and Wonder Woman and all those great people, but when you can take something that's not well thought of and make it something that people do think highly of, that's much more gratifying, I think.~Andrew Kreisberg


Woman Great People

I once witnessed more ardent emotions between men at an Elks' Rally in Pasadena than they could ever have felt for the type of woman available to an Elk.~Anita Loos

I'm not sure I have a role model per se, but I do deeply admire every woman who raises children and has to walk for water.~Anna D. Shapiro


Children Woman Water

The old, subjective, stagnant, indolent and wretched life for woman has gone. She has as many resources as men, as many activities beckon her on. As large possibilities swell and inspire her heart.~Anna Julia Cooper


Life Woman Heart

It is not the intelligent woman v. the ignorant woman; nor the white woman v. the black, the brown, and the red, it is not even the cause of woman v. man. Nay, tis woman's strongest vindication for speaking that the world needs to hear her voice.~Anna Julia Cooper

Woman Sea Gold

When I was in my 20s, I wanted to be tough. I discovered that I didn't want to be the woman I was raised to be - a good, traditional wife. When I went out in the world to find a husband, I found that husbands weren't ready to accept the kind of woman I was going to be.~Angeles Mastretta
