By the grace of God, my parents were fantastic. We were a very normal family, and we have had a very middle-class Indian upbringing.

In five years' time I'd like to be a mum. I want to settle down and have a family, definitely sooner rather than later. I'd like to have finished my second album too, maybe even my third. I'd like a sound that sticks around that other people are inspired by and that people know is me.~Adele


Family Time People

Police in China can do whatever they want; after 81 days in arbitrary detention you clearly realise that they don't have to obey their own laws.

Now I don't want to be Mr. Show Business anymore.~Alec Baldwin

Me and my family are straight. I am blessed. I am alive, man, and I am healthy, and that is the only thing that matters. Me and my family, everybody else, it really doesn't matter because why do you care about somebody talking negative about you if they don't know you?~Allen Iverson


Family Blessed Man

I have a lot of trouble understanding how people see me as a celebrity. I work 14 hours a day, and then I just want to talk to my family, see the people I love, pet my dog, and go to bed. I'm not looking to be best friends with or emulate a celebrity.~America Ferrera


Love Family Work

I'm happiest with my family around me.~Amy Winehouse

Yeah, I mean, climbing's always been a massive hobby of mine up until, kind of, recent times when I've had family, but no, it's been a driving passion in my life and, uh, I've always wanted to climb the Matterhorn.

Life Family Passion

We've never had nannies. We've had great grandparents, great support from family, and the kids have been on every set: they've seen me play Gollum, King Kong, Captain Haddock, the lot.

Family Change Myself

I have a family, loving aunts, and a good home. No, on the surface I seem to have everything except my one true friend. All I think about when I'm with friends is having a good time.

Family Time Home

I was raised in a solidly upper-middle class family who had really strong values and excess was not one of the things that my family put up with. And there's something wildy decadent about the young-star lifestyle, and I just don't really see the point.~Anne Hathaway

Family Home Good

I can't stress to you enough how much I can relate to teens being cyberbullied. Something that helps me is looking at old videos of me and my friends from middle school, or videos of my family. I love watching funny videos of my favorite people - it really cheers me up.~Ariana Grande


Love Funny Family

I assume the closest members of my family don't actually want to kill me, but the truth is that I have shamed and hurt them; they have to deal with the outrage that my public statements cause, and undoubtedly some members of my clan do want to kill me for that.~Ayaan Hirsi Ali


Family Truth Hurt

A girl child who is even a little bit educated is more conscious of family planning, health care and, in turn, her children's own education.~Azim Premji


Family Education Children

Family Best Myself

I guess in America we're so sold on this ideal of the perfect, well-adjusted family that is able to confront any conflict and, with true love and understanding, work things through. I'm sure they do exist, but I never knew any of them.~Alan Ball


Love Family Work

Many, including the Canadian and U.S. governments, try to provide family support while also maintaining a hard line about further fuelling terrorism and hostage-taking through ransom payments ...

Of course, my mom is my biggest and loudest cheerleader, and my family and friends are happy for me, but I'm still just Angie, not Angie-the-author-with-this-hyped-up-book. I appreciate that.~Angie Thomas


Mom Family Happy

Family Positive

The simple answer is I'd just be a guy trying to feed my family, like everybody else. The complicated answer is, I think I'd be in some sort of military or government world of some sort.~Antoine Fuqua


Family World Simple

The more anxious, isolated and time-deprived we are, the more likely we are to turn to paid personal services. To finance these extra services, we work longer hours. This leaves less time to spend with family, friends and neighbors; we become less likely to call on them for help, and they on us.~Arlie Russell Hochschild


Family Work Time

The surface of American life looks smooth, prosperous, peaceful. But underneath, fault-line shifts in family and work life have led us into what some have called 'advanced insecurity.'~Arlie Russell Hochschild

Family Happy Just

I love hanging out with friends and family.~Ashley Wagner


Love Family Friends

What I have found is that, in a family business structure, sometimes what is needed is a sense of discipline rather than creativity. You have to take everyone's ideas and make it work. When you are dealing with money, there is a limitation on how creative you can be.~Ashwin Sanghi


Family Work Business

I think that's the key for a good team, to work together like a family. It's something that I've learned over the years with the experience that I've gotten over 10 seasons.~Asdrubal Cabrera


Family Work Experience

I don't spend the whole off-season in Venezuela. I spend a couple of weeks in Cleveland, go to Florida, take my son to Disney World. But I still have my home, and my whole family lives in Venezuela.~Asdrubal Cabrera


Family Son Home

My family didn't film anything. But then you look deeper and realize, maybe there are photographs, there are things. It's also context: You give something a context, and suddenly it becomes really deep or meaningful footage.~Asif Kapadia


Family Deep Meaningful

That is the thankless position of the father in the family - the provider for all, and the enemy of all.~August Strindberg


Family Father Dad

For my parents' generation, the idea was not that marriage was about some kind of idealized, romantic love; it was a partnership. It's about creating family; it's about creating offspring. Indian culture is essentially much more of a 'we' culture. It's a communal culture where you do what's best for the community - you procreate.~Aasif Mandvi


Love Family Marriage

'Halal in the Family' will expose a broad audience to some of the realities of being Muslim in America. By using satire, we will encourage people to reconsider their assumptions about Muslims, while providing a balm to those experiencing anti-Muslim bias. I also hope those Uncles and Aunties out there will crack a smile!~Aasif Mandvi


Family Smile Hope

I could enjoy the life that I had by virtue of the educational attainment that my grandparents and parents had pursued. Education was always incredibly valued in our family.~Adam Braun


Life Family Education

Family Sister Money

How do you sustain yourself when all the old structures people looked to for support - religion, family, ethnic solidarity - are crumbling, or feel so false that you refuse to avail yourself of them? What comes next?~Adam Mansbach


Family Religion Support

Mom Family Dog

I love cooking for myself and cooking for my family.~Al Roker


Love Family Myself

No one has got close enough to use or abuse me, and even if they did, I wouldn't get too emotional about it. The only thing I ever get emotional about is my family. I am kind to everyone but I trust no one. That keeps me from getting hurt.~Akshay Kumar


Family Trust I Am

Always think twice before you decide to do anything for a film. It may seem like a career-changing idea, but think of your family and your future before doing anything risky. Train properly, because looking strong and being strong are two different things.~Akshay Kumar


Family Future Strong

I savour the adulation and love I have been getting from my fans and the blessings of elders in my family.~Akshay Kumar


Love Family Blessings

Mother Family King

We have a host of English teachers in the family. My mum is an English teacher, and so are my dad, my aunt and my uncle. I have grown up with family writing competitions, and I can't remember a birthday or Christmas present that didn't include books.~Alexandra Adornetto


Family Birthday Teacher

One thing I would say is that I think in any environment that you work in, there's always going to be one or two people who you don't like. But there just wasn't that on 'Games Of Thrones'. I know it sounds cheesy and cliched, but it was like a big family.~Alfie Allen


Family Work People

When the Internet really first started to hit, people felt this would be the death blow: after suburbs and long commutes and television and the death of the family dinner, this would be the last straw that would totally break society.~Alex Steffen


Family Death Society

I definitely had a weird thing of being attracted to older men. Never my family friends, never my dad's friends.~Alia Shawkat

Family Myself End

My very first car was a grey Alfa Romeo Alfasud, which I got in 1987. But, in our family, all cars were for sale - so they might be there in the morning and were gone at night. In the mid-90s, I joined Porsche and the Carrera was the car, and the Carrera 4S was the one they gave me. As a wee boy from Dumfries, I couldn't believe it.~Allan McNish


Family Morning Car

I can still play this game at a high level; I've proven that. I want to be home. I want to be close to my family. I want to be close to my foundation and my business interests.~Alonzo Mourning

Life Family You

I'm pretty blessed when it comes to clear skin. I owe that to being Cape Verdian. My whole family has great skin. My grandfather is 80 but doesn't look a day over 50. And we all love the sun, too, so blessed is an understatement!~Amber Rose


Love Family Sun

Aaron Spelling always had his finger on the pulse of pop culture, he knew what the public wanted to see. He was one of the most loyal men in this business and believed in me at a time in my career when no one else would. My prayers are with his family.~Alyssa Milano

I grew up in a working-class family, so I guess you could say I write from what I know.~Andrea Arnold


Family You Know

I always had a larger view. I'm interested in real life - my family, my friends. I have tried never to define myself by my success, whatever that is. My happiness is way beyond roles and awards.~Amy Adams


Life Family Success

But I am Armenian and I understand what it is to lose a country and lose a family and have massacres and genocides and everything against my people.~Andrea Martin


Family I Am People

Those who say we should dismantle the role of Poet Laureate altogether, the trick they miss is that being called this thing, with the weight of tradition behind it, and with the association of the Royal family, does allow you to have conversations and to open doors, and wallets, for the good of poetry in a way that nothing else would allow.~Andrew Motion


Family Good Poetry

When I was young, I colored in the line drawings in vintage editions of the Oz books that had been handed down through generations in my family. This was a bad thing to do.~Andrew Rosenthal


Family Young Generations

I can still remember the first time I heard a Beatles song. It was the fall of 1964, my second year in an American school after my family moved back from overseas, and I was standing on the corner of 64th street and First Avenue with my friend Larry Campbell.~Andrew Rosenthal


Family Time School

I was on Oprah's show recently talking about the people who impacted me the most. One was a teacher and one was my soccer coach. I didn't even go into my family, who had the most influence.~Andrew Shue


Family Teacher Influence

Working long hours being single helps because your time is yours. Once you have a family your time isn't all yours anymore. Most of the Mac team, we were in our mid-20's, most of us were single, and we were able to essentially devote our lives to it.~Andy Hertzfeld

Girls' education is a human right. And along with its fundamental justice, it promises so much for the individual, for her family, for society, for all of us.~Ann Cotton


Family Education Justice

I have a really, really, really normal family. And by normal I mean we're all nuts on some level. I think you've gotta be a little nuts to pursue any kind of creative job. I was also a really good kid. I know that sounds really dull, but I didn't rebel in the traditional sense.~Anna Paquin


Family Good Job

As a little girl in Arizona, none of the women in my family had a cultural connection with Girl Scouts, but the opportunity resonated with my mother as a platform that would allow me to excel in school.~Anna Maria Chavez


Mother Family Women

My family had all kinds of complications in relationships. I would like to meet the person who did not. Since when is being absolutely perfect what being a human is? What do we gain from that?~Anthony Edwards


Family Perfect Human

I had this thing about hanging out in dark theaters. My family thought I grew out of a rock.~Anthony Edwards

Producing clean energy from non-recyclable waste is an important part of my future vision for family company Visy Australia.~Anthony Pratt

Until he lost all his money, my father was a successful north London Jewish businessman. He was unusual among his immediate family in that he was enormously cultured and had an incredible library.~Anthony Horowitz


Family Money Father

It was only after five years in the army, when I was having to do a very boring job in a very boring place, that I thought: 'Why not try writing a novel?' partly out of youthful arrogance and partly because there had been a long line of writers in my mother's family.~Antony Beevor


Mother Family Job

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

There can be hope only for a society which acts as one big family, not as many separate ones.~Anwar Sadat


Family Hope Society

I believe in family values, and I believe that we all ought to be able to have a family and marry if you want to. I don't think the government should be in that business of denying people the fundamental right to marry.~Antonio Villaraigosa

My kids and I are spending time together. And we're enjoying that. Family is important; I was gone a lot in the 20 years of public service.~Antonio Villaraigosa

I was born in a poor family, a lower middle class family. My father was a clerk in the forest department. I was very bad at studies. I was not very good at sports, also.~Anupam Kher


Family Sports Father

In India, film sets are like a family atmosphere.~Anupam Kher

I refused to learn English for two years when we moved to London, hoping to send my family back home. It was tough, but at the same time, it has given me a sense of displacement that actually really suits the life that I'm living now.~Anya Taylor-Joy


Life Family Time

I think I just really understand what it is to feel like you don't fit in, within your society, within your world, within your family, within whatever. I've always felt like an odd duck so I really understood that.~Anya Taylor-Joy


Family World Society

My grandma's into music. My mom is a singer. Even my sister is a much better singer than I am. So you could say music runs in the family.~Arijit Singh


Mom Family Music

Physical attributes can make you appealing, but to keep the appeal going, one has to draw from within. You have to be a real person. Your fans and the people you associate with have to be able to see beyond your looks. You have to be a good friend, dutiful son and a good family man.~Arjun Rampal


Family Son Good

I think it is a combination of looks, aura, success, the energies that one gives out, the person you are and the person you feel like that makes you 'desirable.' When the outside world sees you as a man who is responsible for himself and his family, as a man who is fit and sensitive, it kind of ups your desirability.~Arjun Rampal


Family Success Man

The greatest job I ever had was working on my family farm. Each morning my father would come into my bedroom around 4:30 am and command me to get up and work the fields. I would spend the next two hours before school slopping pigs and cropping tobacco.~Armstrong Williams


Family Work Morning

So instead of watching TV, we read every night together as a family.~Arne Duncan


Family Together Night

Some twins feel like they need to compare themselves to each other, but we're not that way. That's because of my parents, though, and having six kids in the family.~Ashley Olsen

The principal contributor to loneliness in this country is television. What happens is that the family 'gets together' alone.~Ashley Montagu

I'm really blessed to have an amazing family.~Austin Seferian-Jenkins

It's one-of-a-kind, because some people would die to have the family I do.~Austin Seferian-Jenkins


Family People Die

During the periods in my marriage when I chose to stay home with my kids rather than work as an attorney, it caused me no end of anxiety. Despite the fact that I knew I was contributing to our family by caring for our children, I still felt that my worth was less because I wasn't earning.~Ayelet Waldman


Family Work Marriage

I'd like to do more family dramas.~Aaron Eckhart


Family Like More

When I was fourteen years old, our family drove all the way from Vancouver to Newfoundland and back. I've been all across the great land of Canada. I absolutely love the Maritimes, and I'm very excited to go back, particularly in the fall when it's one of the most beautiful places on Earth.~Aaron Douglas


Love Family Beautiful

I'm not from a political family and didn't grow up dreaming of being George Washington. I started working in 8th grade and have held every odd job possible - working in a gravel pit, weighing big wheelers, ticket sales, data base management - but I knew if I worked hard and got experience, I could apply that experience to my next endeavor.~Aaron Schock


Family Experience Job

We should make it so that young people pay their fair share for health care, and nothing more. And instead of Washington telling us what to buy, let's get back to letting every American choose the plan that's best for them and their family.~Aaron Schock


Family Best Health

I think as a child you know when it's time for your parents to split. You realise they love each other, but they're not in love with each other. And I think as a child it's much better for your parents to split than for them to stay and have dysfunction within the family.~Abbie Cornish


Love Family Time

I am quite a spendthrift but just being careful because my family was not rich, was not a rich family.~Abdullah Ahmad Badawi


Family I Am Rich

I have a really great family, and when I'm not filming, I go home and walk the dogs, take out the garbage, clean my room, all that stuff. My family and my friends keep me in line, and make sure I don't get crazy.~Abigail Breslin

I was born in Jerusalem in 1939 to a poor family that shared a rented four-room apartment with two additional families and their children.~Ada Yonath

What's so amazing about 'All in the Family' is sometimes an entire act was one camera shot. It was all about characters.~Adam Green

My favorite uncle died when I was eleven, and that was two months after 9/11, so that was a particularly difficult time with my family.~Adam Silvera


Family Time Favorite

We have very strong succession plans across all group companies. But we do not comment on it. The retirement age is 60 years, but it does not apply to family professionals who work in the business.~Adi Godrej


Family Work Business

What is important is family, friends, giving back to your community and finding meaning in life.~Adrian Grenier


Life Family Community

You never know when some small thing will lead to a big idea. Travel is very inspirational - but it's in the ordinary that I find my themes of love and work and family.~Adriana Trigiani


Inspirational Love Family

I come from hardworking, determined people on both sides of my family... the kind who live with a hard reality from which much strength comes.~Adriana Trigiani


Family Strength People

Like all my family and class, I considered it a sign of weakness to show affection; to have been caught kissing my mother would have been a disgrace, and to have shown affection for my father would have been a disaster.~Agnes Smedley


Mother Family Father

My family is mostly a chosen one. I've managed to invite some really amazing people into my life and they become family. Brothers, sisters, siblings, mentors, role models. And I like to live that way, where your family bleeds out into the larger community.~Adrian Grenier


Life Family Community

Food is so important - it sustains us, it provides a social focal point, and it is fun. I cannot unravel the difference between love in my family and the preparation of food because they are so closely woven.~Adriana Trigiani


Love Family Food

It has always felt like a failure that Bjorn and I couldn't keep our family together. You never get it back, but to this day I don't regret splitting up. The reason behind our separation is one of those things I definitely don't want to go into!~Agnetha Faltskog


Family Failure Day

Writing about what happened to my brother and to my family was awful. It was hard to look back at how much suffering there was and at how certain bad situations were made worse by our decisions.~Akhil Sharma


Family Decisions Brother

My family was very supportive of my acting. They didn't really have a choice because I got jobs acting before anyone could really say anything. It paid my way through college and helped my family out.~Ajay Naidu


Family College Choice

When you read Chekhov, everything has an even gray tone. When you read 'Family Life', everything has an even white tone. It is almost like when you paint on paper, and you can see the paper through the paint.~Akhil Sharma


Life Family White

'Family Life' is a blueprint of my life. It was horrible and physically gruesome in a way the book doesn't attempt to capture. It was emotionally very bleak.~Akhil Sharma


Life Family Book

If you cannot work on the marriage or the women is a moron, staying married and cheating makes the most sense because divorce is disruptive to the family life and your bank account.~Al Goldstein


Life Family Work

Saudi Arabia has stability. The social contract and the political contract between the king and the rulers and the royal family and the ruled people in Saudi Arabia is very strong and the bondage is so solid.~Al-Waleed bin Talal


Family Strong Political

I'm thankful God has given us the technology where we can see each other through Skype on the computer. It's not the same thing, but at least we can see each other. Imagine the time before when that wasn't available and people had to go defend our country. It's really hard. I go two weeks without seeing my family and I go crazy.~Albert Pujols


Family Time Technology

The fans know and the Cardinals know that I want to be a Cardinal for my whole career. I love this city. The way that this city has embraced me and my family.~Albert Pujols


Love Family Me

Even though I grew up in L.A., no one in my family was in the movie industry. I've always felt whatever the opposite of disillusioned is. I guess illusioned with movies and with people in movies and things like that. It's all exciting to me.~Alden Ehrenreich


Family People Me

In one way or another, everybody has this experience in their lives... the moment when you have to define your relationship to family and how your family's made you who you are, whether you've spent your life running from your family or deeply connected to your family.~Alex Kurtzman


Life Family Relationship

I am fascinated by the Royal Family because they are shrouded in mystique, and the Queen, and to a certain extent William, represent fabulous blank canvases. I find the Prince of Wales less fascinating because he spills the beans and we know too much about him.~Alison Jackson


Family I Am Queen

And partly, the worst thing you could do in my family was need something from someone. So physical strength represented an avenue of self-sufficiency to me.~Alison Bechdel


Family Strength Me

I heard there was a debate about fighting teammates, and if a fight should happen because the fans or promoter wants it, I will fight a teammate, but family is ridiculous.~Alistair Overeem


Family Fight Fighting

I've spent half my life on planes. I have a lot of love for New Zealand, though. That is where the really arty, whimsical side of the family resided - in Hobbitland.~Alice Englert


Life Love Family

I'm not a big chicken or meat eater, but sometimes I'll eat it if it's locally raised. The family dinner will be stir-fry, or we'll roll our own sushi with brown rice, spinach, salmon, sesame oil, sesame seeds, and seaweed. The kids love it!~Alysia Reiner


Love Family Dinner

My family made it through Hurricane Sandy. We have water, power, and a roof, but the survivor's guilt makes me want to hide. Sneak away from the brilliance of life. It shouts at me: 'Don't enjoy anything too much; people are suffering.' I feel childlike somehow.~Alysia Reiner


Life Family Power

Other people like Neil Young and Dennis Hopper, those are just really close knit family friends.~Amber Tamblyn

I think marriage and family keeps being written about because that's where we keep our reputations with ourselves - I mean, we can't quite slip the truths we reveal about ourselves at home.~Amity Gaige


Family Marriage Home

My family are my priority but I've always had a strong work ethic and I like to be busy.~Amanda Holden


Family Work Strong

I was born on an even keel. Family lore says I never cried, even at birth. I felt at ease on earth, in the right place. And like many children, I took comfort in life's regularity: Every few days it rained, the school bus came and went, and my parents were rooted in their union.~Amity Gaige


Life Family Children

'You have chickens?' That's what nearly everyone asks next, after they find out about our family pets. They just need to make sure they heard me correctly. Perhaps it's because I don't come across to most as a rural-loving farm girl.~Amy Robach


Family Girl Me

Many of my colleagues are not able to run their family budget. On the other hand, I look at some of the apparatchiks in research councils, and I have even less trust in their abilities. Good intentions have always paved the road to hell.~Andre Geim

I will always put family first. Every time I haven't, I have regretted it and apologised.~Andrew Forrest

The book begins and ends with the visits to give the impression of a tunnel into their ancestors and family history. I believe in going backwards into the past - I felt I was digging a tunnel back to the past.~Anita Desai

When I was very young, I used to share much of what I wrote with my family, but as I got older and more self-conscious, it became a much more private process.~Anita Desai

Everyone in my family is a risk taker in his or her own way.~Ann Bancroft

The results of this survey are shocking and should be a wake-up call to men and women that drinking and smoking too much not only gives you a bad headache in the morning but can affect your ability to start a family.~Ann Robinson

Everyone has the same kind of fears; everyone has the same big problems in the world, which is, like, fear of death and 'I hope horrible things don't happen to my family,' but they do. And I think people laugh at them as this great release.~Anthony Jeselnik

I have always made my own rules, in poetry as in life - though I have tried of late to cooperate more with my family. I do, however, believe that without order or pattern poetry is useless.~Anne Stevenson

I realized my family was funny, because nobody ever wanted to leave our house.~Anthony Anderson


Funny Family Nobody

Coming to New York is like a big hug, everyone is so welcoming. There's something about here, everyone makes you feel so at home. I miss my family of course, but I don't miss London that much. I was worried, but I feel really at home. Everyone says that who comes here from London, but I didn't believe them.~Archie Panjabi

Today, loss is something everybody feels. It could be the loss of a friend moving away. It could be your best friend moves to the other side of town or his family does. It's a loss.~Art Malik

I'm thankful to God for having a family that's been there for me. He's been there from the time I was a child to even now with my family helping with my little boy. It's worth more than words could ever describe. That's one of the ways I've been able to stay grounded is thanks to family and God.~Ashton Shepherd

Working on the themes I was interested in, through the context of a particular family, was a very economical way of dealing with a lot of the issues I was concerned with.~Atom Egoyan


Family Working Way

When I was planning Family Viewing, the Ontario Film Development Corporation came into existence.~Atom Egoyan


Family Planning Existence

I think if you look at the themes that are presented in the film, some are inherently social, and I think that any film which deals with the family is dealing with the smallest social unit in our society - and in a sense it is a question of scope.~Atom Egoyan

Shortly after I was born he emigrated to Durban, where members of my mother's family had settled at the turn of the century, and the rest of the family followed soon thereafter.~Aaron Klug

I think there are two ways to depict a family. One is what it's really like, and one is what the audience would like it to be. Between you and me, I think the second one is what I would prefer.~Aaron Spelling


Family Me You

It was never the fame or fortune that drove me to act. It was something I love and enjoy doing it. A lot of people identify who they are by what they do and that's not me. It's what I do but not who I am. Who I am is a parent. I'm a family man.~Adam Baldwin

My earnestness at the injustices I witnessed when I was writing 'Random Family' may have been my gravest reportorial offense during the early years of reporting. When I discuss the book with students, they often ask me how I could 'stand by' in the face of so much suffering; the egregiousness wasn't my powerlessness but my surprise.~Adrian Nicole LeBlanc

When I was getting injured so much, I spoke to my family and my manager and said, 'I need my body to recover.' The first thing I thought was that I needed to stay upright. When I went back to Brazil to play, after a few months, my body was perfect.~Alexandre Pato

According to the U.N., more than 2.7 billion people will face severe water shortages by 2025. Many social scientists predict that the next big wars will be over water. Nevertheless, the average American family blissfully consumes 300 gallons a day, when you add in watering the lawn and washing dishes, clothes, and cars.~Alex Shoumatoff

It is heartrending to read the entries in many an old family Bible - the records of suffering, distress, and blasted hopes.~Alice Morse Earle


Family Suffering Bible

I guess, like most foreigners, when you're away, you see your own culture being even more strange. But where I come from and my roots mean a lot. I miss my family and my friends. Something I've realized as I've been traveling is that it's more about the actual people than the actual place.~Alicia Vikander


Family Culture Friends

My mother had a master's degree and had been a schoolteacher before she started having kids at 30. But my father's family were landowners, farmer-merchants. Moneymaking was extremely important, like one of those semi-rapacious families in Lillian Hellman, where they know the price of everything and the value of nothing.~Allan Gurganus


Mother Family Father

The luckiest person in the world is somebody who is born into a small, shabby-genteel town on a major railway connection with 24,000 souls and a bird sanctuary and whose grandfather owns a farm and whose father owns a business -whose family is mildly prosperous but not rich, which means you can leave the town.~Allan Gurganus

Family I Am Rest

Families can be the most detrimental things to have in your life. They are sometimes the most poisonous relationships that people have. Sometimes family is the thing that keeps you from ever achieving what you want to achieve, and yet people hold it and hold it and grab it and try to fix it and twist it and turn it.~Amy Sherman-Palladino

All I care is that my family, and my loved ones, understand me. Or that they understand me to a degree - I don't understand me very much. And I don't need the world to understand me. That is the most egocentric thing.~Andrea Corr

I come from a pretty humble family, and I try to be a humble guy.~Andrew Benintendi


Family Humble Try

The number of stressors has multiplied exponentially: traffic, money, success, work/life balance, the economy, the environment, parenting, family conflict, relationships, disease. As the nature of human life has become far more complicated, our ancient stress response hasn't been able to keep up.~Andrew J. Bernstein

Money is a huge issue for manic depressives. Sometimes the problem is not nearly on the same scale as it has been for me, but nonetheless, it's difficult to deal with. Many get themselves into debt that can take years to clear up, write bad cheques, shoplift and borrow huge amounts from family and friends.~Andy Behrman

Politics was sort of a way of life in our family.~Ann McLane Kuster


Life Family Politics

I was brought up with two sisters, so I do know about a three-way dynamic. It's a complex one, because it's easy for one to get left out and the others to gang up. In my family, we were all pretty up for it, but the dynamics would constantly change.~Anna Chancellor


Family Change Easy

Some people in my family achieved a lot, some people inherited a lot. But I turned my back on the whole thing.~Anna Chancellor

My last trip to New Orleans was for the fifth anniversary of Katrina, and I had the awesome opportunity to bring my family down. We all worked on a house together and met some of the families.~AnnaLynne McCord

I've been thinking about disowning some of my genes lately. I have a few healthy, happy, long-living optimists in my family tree - most of them fans of Christian Science founder Mary Baker Eddy, a major champion of positive thinking. But I've got plenty of ancestors who played out more tortured hands.~Ariel Gore

You know what, we're very skinny in our family.~Ashley Scott


Family You Know

When you're a guest star on a movie or a TV show, I always say it's like being invited to a family reunion, but it's not your family. So you don't belong - they're being nice to you, but you don't fit in completely; you don't know everybody's story. You don't have a history.~Ato Essandoh

My greatest success story has been my family.~Alex Spanos

I never took that stuff personally when people said I was too young, too inexperienced. I get politics. I get attack ads. But they said 'mobbed up family.' That we were criminals. That kills me.~Alexi Giannoulias

It destroys you when people say complete mistruths about your family.~Alexi Giannoulias

My grandfather was from outside of Moscow, and my grandmother, although some of her family were French, was from Odessa. They met as immigrants in New York in the early '20s. My mother's family came over from Ireland generations ago.~Alexis Denisof

I'm very close to my mother, but not a single other person in my family.~Alexis Stewart


Mother Family Single

Blues and jazz pulled me away from what was left of my family.~Alexis Korner


Family Me Jazz

That attitude that I wouldn't succeed didn't come from my family; it came from school and then the township we lived in. I wasn't going to settle for that, and my mother warned us not to settle for less, to make the most of our lives.~Alexis Wright


Mother Family Attitude

Even if some days I feel like I'm ready to fall apart, I am ultimately happier than I've ever been. My family gives me more joy than I thought possible, and my career fulfills me tremendously. All in all, I feel like am in the exact place I am supposed to be in, doing exactly what I am supposed to be doing.~Ali Landry


Family Joy I Am

But this is called show business, not show family.~Alice Barrett


Family Business Show

I eat very well. I cook for my family every night. We eat a variety of things, including chicken, fish, pork, lentils, all veggies, pastas, and salads. You name it, we eat it - except salmon, which I find disgusting. Sorry, salmon.~Alicia Coppola

When I was trying out for my first Olympics at 16, my family and coaches tried to regulate what I ate. But the stricter they got, the more I rebelled.~Alicia Sacramone

When the great history of trouble is written, my family will stand extremely high in the table of contents.~Allan Sherman

Don't commit to being a columnist unless you're willing to do it right. Report your behind off, so you have something original and useful to say. Say it in a way that will interest someone other than you, your family and your sources.~Allan Sloan

When I moved to London at age 16, tired of the shuffle around other people's houses and ready to live on my own, I met my English brother and sister, who instantly claimed me as family.~Allegra Huston

My family's a ruling family.~Aminatta Forna


Family Ruling

In 2012, I received a phone call from the family of Arsala Rahmani, the Afghan senator with whom I'd become friendly. That morning, a gunman had pulled up alongside Rahmani's vehicle, idling in a crowded intersection, and shot him point blank.~Anand Gopal


Family Morning Him

I watch so much TV, it's sad. I watch 'Happy Endings', '30 Rock', 'Parks and Rec', 'The Office', 'Eagleheart', 'Children's Hospital'. 'Modern Family' I guess I'm still kinda watching.~Anders Holm

My family life and my ideals, my commitment to the community and to other people - all people - has been improved. I think less about myself and more about my community today.~Andre Braugher


Life Family Myself

My mother was largely a housewife until she and my father were divorced. No one in the family read for pleasure - it was a very unintellectual household - but my mother did read to us when we were little, and that's how I started to read.~Andrea Barrett

Eating at home is fine, as I can easily work around the foods that don't agree with me and still eat heartily with the rest of my family. I don't force them to follow my diet.~Andrea McLean

We opened Panda Inn on June 8, 1973. The whole family - my parents, a brother and sister - all worked at the restaurant for free. We lived in a two-bedroom apartment in San Gabriel and didn't have any money.~Andrew Cherng

It is an honor to open in New York City and to have the opportunity to serve and share our family's version of American Chinese food and hospitality. New York City deeply influenced my passion for food and service, and it feels good to be back.~Andrew Cherng

I was born in Yangzhou, China, two years after World War II ended. I was 5 when my family escaped to Taiwan. Eight years later, we moved to Japan.~Andrew Cherng


Family War World

I think here in America the space programme was such an enticing thing to be going on, that the thought of a family being able to go into space and live up there was really kind of mind-bending at the time.~Angela Cartwright


Family Time Space

After my kids were born I found myself incorporating my photography into different art endeavors and from there it just blossomed. I have always had to have an outlet for my creativity and when my life became more about raising my family than the bright lights of show business exploring my photo art was a great outlet for me.~Angela Cartwright

Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on 'Two and Half Men' with whom I have worked and over the past ten years who have become an extension of my family.~Angus T. Jones

On the campaign, I've had the privilege of advocating for important issues that affect all women, like demanding equal pay for equal work, pushing to raise our minimum wage, and promoting the idea of paid family leave.~Ann Callis

After receiving strong encouragement from numerous people that I respect and admire, discussing with my family, and seriously considering it, I have decided not to run for the 12th Congressional District, a seat currently held by a man I admire very much, Representative Jerry Costello.~Ann Callis


Family Respect Strong

Both my mother's family and my father's family go back almost a hundred years in the district. I was born in the district, raised in the district, raised my family in the district. And so that's the way I see myself.~Ann Kirkpatrick


Mother Family Myself

The values transmitted through oral history are many - courage, selflessness, the ability to endure, and to do so with humor and grace. I got those values listening to my dad's stories about the Depression and how their family survived. It gave me courage that I, too, could survive hard times.~Ann Turner


Family History Courage

'Hard Hit,' a YA collection of poems, explores the country of grief and survival. Mark, a 16-year-old boy and skilled pitcher, must confront the coming death of his beloved father with the help of his friends, family, baseball, and an idiosyncratic belief in God. I used my own experience of my parents' deaths to inform this journey.~Ann Turner


Family Death Journey

Discovering your purpose doesn't have to be complicated. Look at what you do and why you do it. Is it to support your family? That's your purpose. Is it to make a difference in your customer's life? That's your purpose.~Anne F. Beiler


Life Family Support

Well, sometimes if I go out to dinner with my family, people will come up to me and put their hand across my plate for me to shake, sometimes when I have a bite of food in my mouth. I find this a bit disturbing.~Abdul Qadeer Khan

It's all about how can you take care of yourself when furthering your life's goals and ambitions, and purpose and whatever you choose - family, career - to maintain a really balanced, whole, healthy outlook.~Abigail Spencer

Growing up as a kid my father was British and a soccer player. His idol was a guy that passed the ball a lot, Stanley Matthews. Our family thought if you could be unselfish your teammates would always like you.~Adam Oates


Family Father Growing Up

I've always tried to fit what I do professionally into my family, rather than the other way around.~Adam West


Family Way Always

I really like being thrown into the works. Many actors, I have found, have this as a common trait. We had to, as children, adapt to various situations with either a military family or things like that.~Adelaide Clemens


Family Children Military

My family background is Mexican, and I was born in Chicago. It's pretty much family tradition every time we get together for Christmas and major holidays to sing. Our family time is centered around the food and a little bit of performing for one another.~Ailyn Perez

I just always really wanted to swim. It was always a family thing: dad obviously swam, and my sister did, too. And mum used to come along to meets. They had to drag me out of the pool - so there was never any pressure on me to swim. It was just something I loved doing.~Aimee Willmott


Family Sister Dad

Young men keep telling me they don't 'have it all' either. And they may have a point. But if you define 'having it all' as the opportunity to have a successful career and a family, I'd say this. When a man tells his coworkers he's going to have a child, no one asks him how he'll manage or if he'll be coming back to work.~Anne-Marie Slaughter


Family Work Opportunity

A proper family diary with everyone's events and parties in it really helps organise the household.~Anthea Turner


Family Events Diary

If something was to happen to part of my family, I don't know what I'd do.~Aisha Hinds


Family Know Happen

I'm not entirely sure why I write about family, but I do know that it hasn't stopped interesting me. You meet and leave other people at different stages of your evolution, whereas family is made up of people who are constant links in your life, who know you over the course of time and have your complete curriculum vitae in their heads.~Antonya Nelson


Life Family Time

I grew up with parents who were English professors at Wichita State University, and we were more liberal-minded as a family than most of the people I hung out with in Wichita. During summers, we went off to Telluride, Colorado, where I've returned every summer since I was born.~Antonya Nelson


Family Parents Summer

Obsession with conventional ideas of 'success' can be harmful enough, but compound that stress with relationships, family, financial woes and health concerns, and you find yourself in a constant state of fight or flight. This causes people to be more reactionary, which further perpetuates the cycle of stress.~Ariel Garten

And that's where I'm finally at today - my life is about being with my family. This is what's important.~Aron Ralston

Both sides of my family had come from Ireland in the 19th century for the same reason: There was nothing to eat over there. Since then, I've tried to make up for the potato famine by making the potato the only vegetable that passes these lips.~Art Donovan

I had to do what I had to do to keep my family alive. Period.~Art Modell

As enjoyable as it is when you're just writing and getting feedback from family members, it's 10 times more enjoyable, or 100 times more enjoyable, when you actually start getting paid for it, and people start reading your books, and once in a while you get a good review.~Arthur Slade


Family Good Writing

I have had it with people who are threatening me and my kids and my family over simply commenting on the law and criminal procedure, and respecting juries. Because they do work hard. They work way harder than I do; and they work way harder than the rest of those people making those peanut gallery comments.~Ashleigh Banfield

Mostly, I just like to write music and spend time with my family and friends and jam.~Aubrey Peeples

The family is the single most important institution in Afghan culture. It is described in the country's constitution as the 'fundamental pillar of society'.~Asne Seierstad


Family Culture Society

If we can't understand the Afghan family, we can't understand Afghanistan.~Asne Seierstad


Family Understand Afghan

The book came after the fall of the Taliban, it says something about Afghan family life. Those kind of stories - what happens behind the scenes on a TV screen - are important.~Asne Seierstad

My dad was in a Beatles cover band. My mom wore Candies and belly buttons. The people in our family were very glamorous. They wore pearls like Jackie O.~Azita Ghanizada

In 1979, when I was toddler, the Russians invaded Afghanistan, and my whole family fled to Vienna, Virginia. Far from home, my parents were determined to raise my two sisters and me according to Afghan traditions.~Azita Ghanizada


Family Home Parents

In Afghan culture, you don't date - you marry. Even talking to boys before marriage brings great shame to your family.~Azita Ghanizada


Family Marriage Culture

For me, the toughest thing for kids to deal with is when the parents are fighting. It's not violence on them - it's the feeling of violence in the family.~Avi Arad


Family Parents Violence

My family and I reside on a non-working farm, although we have a couple of horses and the usual stuff like pigs, cows, and chickens. We really don't have an honest-to-goodness farm, more of a hobby farm.~Al Jardine

You take care of you and your family first. Then you go to your neighborhood, and then you spread it on out within the community.~Al Smith


Family Community Care

Aside from my family, I have two great loves in my life: acting and the fight for social justice.~Alan Rosenberg


Life Family Justice

I'm really connected to people, and my relationships with people are paramount, so I write about relationships, particularly strong female ones. In my family, there were six girls born in five years. We were best friends. And my parents raised all of us as first-class citizens.~Alane Ferguson


Family Best Parents

I was a very special child. I did stand-up comedy. I did it all. My family didn't understand. 'Aren't you tired?' I'm like, 'No.' I'm like an insomniac, I hardly sleep, I'm always on the move.~Alessandra Torresani


Family Sleep Child

Money is not everything. My ambition was football itself, not the money I'd make from it. If that brings me and my family a more comfortable lifestyle, then that's fine. But I don't spend my time between games and training sessions thinking about figures.~Alessandro Del Piero


Family Time Money

I come from a very la-ti-da East Coast intellectual family - or so they think.~Alexandra Wentworth


Family Intellectual Think

Familial betrayal is, to me, the most heartbreaking kind - because if you can't trust your family to love you and protect you, who can you really trust?~Alexandra Bracken


Love Family Trust

From the time I was in first grade or so, my dad collected 'Star Wars' toy figures from the 1970s and '80s, and we'd take weekend family trips to antique shops and to toy stores. My father collected a crazy amount of 'Star Wars' stuff over the years, and he and I traveled to many conventions.~Alexandra Bracken


Family Time Father

I was the first in my family to go to college, and I waitressed all the way through, using my earnings to pay for a bachelor's degree first and then a master's. I resented classmates who didn't have to work real jobs, the ones who had the luxury of taking unpaid internships that would eventually position them for high-paying careers.~Ali Liebegott


Family Work College

At the end of the day, I only trust my family.~Ali Lohan


Family Trust Day

My family traveled a lot. For a while we even lived in a trailer and traveled from campground to campground. If we got to eat at the Cheesecake Factory, it was the highlight of our whole year! But I don't miss having to share a bathroom with seven people or having powdered milk with my cereal. It was so nasty.~Alice Greczyn


Family People Bathroom

I'm from a big family; I have four younger siblings. My parents are still happily married together. I grew up moving around a lot, and my family was certainly not affluent.~Alice Greczyn

I tell residents, if you gave me two patients with identical problems, and one of them had family at the bedside with a lot of laughter, plus photos and a quilt from home, and next door was another patient who was alone every time I came by - I'm going to be very nervous about the isolated patient's mental status.~Allan Hamilton


Family Time Home

I had family and friends back home. Just because I could potentially feel alone in Los Angeles, that didn't mean I was alone.~Alona Tal

I've always wanted to work in entertainment. My family moved to Orlando when I was 15 so I could make it.~Amanda Latona

As a fan of the books, I feel fortunate to be part of 'The Hunger Games' family. It was an amazing experience; I am proud of the film and my performance. I want to thank all of my fans and the entire 'Hunger Games' community for their support and loyalty.~Amandla Stenberg


Family Experience Loyalty

I come from a very musical family. My dad taught me to play guitar. I play violin and drums as well. Violin, I started in elementary school. Drums actually came when I was in a program called 'Rock Star,' which was really awesome. We were doing a song by the Ramones, so I thought, 'Why not play the drums?'~Amandla Stenberg


Family School Dad

These displays of affection mean a lot to our family and are a reminder of the heart that my people have. In this time of grief we ask for a little privacy and space to digest this news; our sister was our sun and we are broken by her departure.~Amaury Nolasco


Family Time Sister

In my position, I could be a debutante. But we only got to this position by being a politically active family.~Amy Carter


Family Active Position

I think we live in a world where the most important thing is daily life: sharing a space with your family, making meals, being with your people. It's not only the idea of privacy, it's the beauty of the moment, at a time in the world when everything goes really fast - too fast.~Ana Tijoux


Life Family Time

I have a significant other and a large, immediate family. No children, thank goodness. And I have a 13-year-old kitty.~Andrea Parker

For me, the moral difficulties lie in the continual pressure brought to bear on my friends and immediate family, pressure which is not directed against me personally but which at the same time is all around me.~Andrei Sakharov

Be fair in all your dealings, may it be in your family or in your business. At the end of it all, what matters is not how much money you make but how honest you are.~Andrew Gotianun

I certainly don't walk around my home or being with my family and just using profane language all the time, but on stage, it's a constant.~Andrew Dice Clay

As for suspense, I like to write books that draw you into the hero's plight from the opening pages, where people put their lives on the line for something - a belief, a family member, the truth.~Andrew Gross


Family Truth Hero

I've been lucky enough to play many different roles from darker characters to family orientated shows to comedy.~Andrew-Lee Potts

'Fall on Your Knees' is really a story about secrets and family, and the idea that there are some stories or truths that need to be expressed.~Ann-Marie MacDonald


Family Fall Secrets

I grew up in a family where the love of stories is very strong. And there's also a love of performance. I think one reason stories were so important in my family was that we moved around a lot.~Ann-Marie MacDonald

The best way for women to acquire knowledge is from conversation with a father, a brother, or a friend, in the way of family intercourse and easy conversation, and by such a course of reading as they may recommend.~Anna Letitia Barbauld

I like a quiet evening with family or friends over, great food and great discussion and a lot of laughter. That's really what I think fills my tank.~Anna Eshoo

What scares me? I kind of believe in ghosts. I believe they can wander around, so that scares me. But the stuff that really scares me are the catastrophic events like my husband or children or my family being harmed, or something like that.~Annabeth Gish

A large family and Democrats have a lot in common: teenagers and Democrats are always happy spending other people's money.~Anne Northup

I come from an interracial family: My father is from Nigeria, and so he is African-American, and my mother is American and white, so I rarely see skin color. It's never an issue for me.~Annie Ilonzeh

It's great to have a place of my own, but I still see my family often, as we are very close.~Anthony Howell

In the new series of 'Foyle's War,' London starts to get bombed, and the country falls under heavy attack. It affects people's sense of well-being, their sense of the future and their concerns for their family and friends.~Anthony Howell

I started doing some interviews with elderly people in the family because I knew they would pass away and we would lose the power of their story.~Anthony Shadid


Family Power People

I suppose I have become a sort of living monument in Portugal. But I come from a family with roots all over the world, so the idea of patriotism is not very strong in me. My country is the country of Chekhov, Beethoven, Velasquez - writers I like, painters and artists I admire.~Antonio Lobo Antunes


Family Strong Patriotism

I think our family motto is to always work hard, be humble, kind, and thoughtful about others around us.~Anwar Hadid


Family Work Motto

They're my best friends. We think of Gigi as the brains in the family - something most of the world doesn't know - and my favorite thing about Bella is that she's a free spirit who never lets anyone set limits for her. They can be really protective, but they've taught me not to let other people define what I'm capable of.~Anwar Hadid


Family Best Friends

My family is my foundation. My sisters are awesome; they probably taught me everything I ever need to know about girls.~Anwar Hadid

Just as men must give up economic control when their wives share the responsibility for the family's financial well-being, women must give up exclusive parental control when their husbands assume more responsibility for child care.~Augustus Y. Napier

I do get to have my normal childhood. I just love to get together with my friends and family and have a good time.~Austin O'Brien

The time away from the family is the hardest part of the job. I have a little apartment in D.C., and I have to tell you, I'm happy when I get to go home to Georgia. My wife and I are also talking about whether we can afford the apartment or not. If not, I guess I'd sleep in my office like a lot of my colleagues do.~Austin Scott
