View quotes by Jennifer Lopez

A quality education has the power to transform societies in a single generation, provide children with the protection they need from the hazards of poverty, labor exploitation and disease, and given them the knowledge, skills, and confidence to reach their full potential.
View quotes by Audrey Hepburn

They say I was a bad Batman, that it was my fault, that I buried the franchise. But the truth is, it was a big project. I was pretty intimidated in that world. I did the best I could in the situation I was given.
View quotes by George Clooney

Imagination is a quality given a man to compensate him for what he is not, and a sense of humour was provided to console him for what he is.
View quotes by Oscar Wilde

Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.
View quotes by Martin Luther King

Speaking to an actor after he had given a poor performance:
My dear chap! Good isn't the word!
View quotes by W S Gilbert

The common goal of 22 million Afro-Americans is respect as human beings, the God-given right to be a human being. Our common goal is to obtain the human rights that America has been denying us. We can never get civil rights in America until our human rights are first restored. We will never be recognized as citizens there until we are first recognized as humans.
View quotes by Malcom X

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything.
View quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke

Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.
View quotes by Paul Boese

Even for learned men, love of fame is the last thing to be given up.
View quotes by Tacitus

Given the choice between a Republican and someone who acts like a Republican, people will vote for the real Republican all the time
View quotes by Harry S Truman

'Look neither Janet or me thought it was such a big deal. But when CBS and the FCC got so uptight, yeah, I lied about it and called it a wardrobe malfunction. I mean what else did you expect me to do? They could fine us big time for this which really sucks. I mean it's just a *@#?$% tit! Now I wish we'd shown both of 'em and really given them something to talk about!' (to reporter Sandy Baker re Janet Jackson's nipple slip at the Superbowl)
View quotes by Justin Timberlake

The cry of the Little Peoples goes up to God in vain, For the world is given over to the cruel sons of Cain.
View quotes by Richard Le Gallienne

In crossing a heath, suppose I pitched my foot against a stone, and were asked how the stone came to be there: I might possibly answer, that for any thing I know to the contrary, it had lain there for ever: nor would it perhaps be very easy to show the absurdity of this answer. But suppose I had found a watch upon the ground, and it should be inquired how the watch happened to be in that place; I should hardly think of the answer which I had before given, that for any thing I knew, the watch might have always been there. Yet why should not this answer serve for the watch, as well as for the stone? why is it not as admissable in the second case as in the first? For this reason, and for no other, viz., that when we come to inspect the watch, we perceive (what we could not discover in the stone) that its several parts are framed and put together for a purpose . . . This mechanism being observed . . . the inference, we think, is inevitable, that the watch must have had a maker; that there must have existed, at some time, and at some place of other, an artificer or artificers, who formed it for the purpose which we find it actually to answer; who comprehended its construction, and designed its use.
View quotes by William Paley

As soon as any man says of the affairs of the State 'What does it matter to me?' the State may be given up for lost.
View quotes by Jean Jacques Rousseau

I can honestly say to you, slaves of the press, that if I had as many love affairs as you have given me credit for, I would now be speaking to you from a jar at the Harvard Medical School.
View quotes by Frank Sinatra

You're only given a little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it.
View quotes by Robin Williams

Nothing inspires forgiveness quite like revenge.
View quotes by Scott Adams

Only one absolute certainty is possible to man, namely that at any given moment the feeling which he has exists.
View quotes by Thomas Huxley

Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit.
View quotes by Peter Ustinov

Pre-game pep talk before facing England: 'Look what these bastards have done to Wales. They've taken our coal, our water, our steel. They buy our houses and they only live in them for a fortnight every 12 months. What have they given us? Absolutely nothing. We've been exploited, raped, controlled and punished by the English - and that's who you are playing this afternoon'
View quotes by Phil Bennett

Addresses are given to us to conceal our whereabouts.
View quotes by Saki

Nothing we use or hear or touch can be expressed in words that equal what is given by the senses.
View quotes by Hannah Arendt

Forgiveness is the key to action and freedom.
View quotes by Hannah Arendt

Forgiveness is the remission of sins. For it is by this that what has been lost, and was found, is saved from being lost again.
View quotes by Saint Augustine

Americans, unhappily, have the most remarkable ability to alchemize all bitter truths into an innocuous but piquant confection and to transform their moral contradictions, or public discussion of such contradictions, into a proud decoration, such as are given for heroism on the battle field.
View quotes by James Baldwin

An idea is never given to you without you being given the power to make it reality. You must, nevertheless, suffer for it.
View quotes by Richard Bach

Given that external reality is a fiction, the writer's role is almost superfluous. He does not need to invent the fiction because it is already there.
View quotes by J G Ballard
