I never know what to get my father for his birthday. I gave him a hundred dollars and said, 'Buy yourself something that will make your life easier.' So he went out and bought a present for my mother.
View quotes by Rita Rudner

Thank goodness I was never sent to school; it would have rubbed off some of the originality.
View quotes by Beatrix Potter

'Six months before he died, my grand-father came to Australia to try to explain to me that he was dying. I was a young kid, very much into myself at the time. I was busking on the streets just to make enough money to pay my rent, There was this Japanese restaurant I'd always wanted to eat at but couldn't afford, so I suggested we go there.' It was an unfortunate choice. In Weans' weakened condition, the smell of the rice and soya sauce brought back memories of the Second World War. 'We couldn't have the talk he wanted to,' says Crowe. 'The day he died, I was in the kitchen of a flat in Woollarah, (an eastern suburb of Sydney). 'Suddenly a kookaburra bird flew in the window. It just looked at me. I knew my grandfather had died. I phoned home and my mother confirmed it. 'I insisted the bird was my grandfather's spirit, but my mom would have nothing of it.' One day last year, Crowe had a dream in which he was holding his mother and she was crying. He phoned home immediately. 'My mother said a woman who had worked closely with my grandfather had come to visit and, without prompting, had told her that on the day my grandfather died a bird had visited her as well. 'Learning this had reduced my mother to tears.' Crowe says he believes that 'with all this talk of angels, maybe they are just birds sent to us by those who have crossed over.'

'If you represent yourself as nurturer and provider, you can create a relationship. You need to keep them healthy. You run your hands over them and make sure they don't have ticks. You check around their ears. The cows love all of this, because you're completely relaxed with them.
View quotes by Russell Crowe

Sentimentality is the emotional promiscuity of those who have no sentiment.
View quotes by Norman Mailer

The power of a man, to take it universally, is his present means, to obtain some future apparent good; and is either original or instrumental. (Leviathan)
View quotes by Thomas Hobbes

I almost resent the whole fashion thing. Good God - never wearing the same thing twice and all of those things. It's a pain in the ass.
View quotes by Jennifer Aniston

Motherhood has a very humanizing effect. Everything gets reduced to essentials.
View quotes by Meryl Streep

I don't believe in the so-called Latino explosion when it comes to movies. Jennifer Lopez doesn't have an accent. She grew up in New York speaking English not Spanish. Her success is very important because she represents a different culture, but it doesn't help me. I grew up in Mexico, not the US, and the fact is that there just aren't any parts for Latin actresses. I have to persuade people that my accent won't be a problem, but an asset.
View quotes by Salma Hayek

I'm an actor who hates dialogue and the present day and reality.
View quotes by Christina Ricci

I put a drop of lavender essential oil on my pillow before I go to sleep.
View quotes by Melissa Joan Hart

The absent are always in the wrong.
View quotes by Philippe Nericault Destouches

"It is up to us to give ourselves recognition. If we wait for it to come from others, we feel resentful when it doesn't, and when it does, we may well reject it."
View quotes by Spencer Tracy

On what she sent to her director Brett Ratner: I sent him 'Porky's' on DVD because he once said he used to masturbate to that in high school, and I figured his copy was probably worn out.
View quotes by Tea Leoni

"I'm just getting away with presenting until someone realises that I'm cr*p."
View quotes by Ralf Little

For we, which now behold these present days, Have eyes to wonder, but lack tongues to praise (Sonnet 106)
View quotes by William Shakespeare

'never let anyone let make you feel inferior without your consent'
View quotes by Emily Dickinson

You are forgiven for your happiness and your successes only if you generously consent to share them.
View quotes by Albert Camus

Real generosity toward the future lies in giving all to the present.
View quotes by Albert Camus

If you worry about the future, and dwell on the past, you can't enjoy the present
View quotes by Emily Gibbons

View quotes by Miguel De Cervantes

An ambassador is an honest man sent to lie abroad for the good of the state
View quotes by Sir Henry Wotton

It is a great help for a man to be in love with himself. For an actor, however, it is absolutely essential
View quotes by Robert Morley

The world has reached such a degree of interdependence... that international cooperation has become essential... the only self-supporting region of the world is the whole world... Only one opinion and only one market cover the face of the earth.
View quotes by Salvador De Madariaga

I resent people who say writers write from experience. Writers don't write from experience, though many are hesitant to admit that they don't. I want to be clear about this. If you wrote from experience, you'd get maybe one book, maybe three poems. Writers write from empathy.
View quotes by Nikki Giovanni

Marriage isn't a word...it's a sentence!
View quotes by King Vidor

Any lore that widens people's horizons and presents food for thought is the beginning of philosophy

Besides the noble art of getting things done there is the art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.
View quotes by Lin Yutang

When asked to use the word 'horticulture' in a sentence: You can lead a whore to culture, but you can't make her think.
View quotes by Dorothy Parker
