10 Quotes by Corazon Aquino

 

I would rather die a meaningful death than to live a meaningless life.

– Corazon Aquino


Faith is not simply a patience that passively suffers until the storm is past. Rather, it is a spirit that bears things – with resignations, yes, but above all, with blazing, serene hope.

– Corazon Aquino


I guess my religious faith sustained me more than anything else. Family is also very important. If I didn’t have children, it would have been too difficult. Even if you are strong, you still need people who would support you all the way.

– Corazon Aquino


Freedom of expression – in particular, freedom of the press – guarantees popular participation in the decisions and actions of government, and popular participation is the essence of our democracy.

You have spent many lives and much treasure to bring freedom to many lands that were reluctant to receive it. And here you have a people who won it by themselves and need only the help to preserve it.

– Corazon Aquino


You, the foreign media, have been the companion of my people in its long and painful journey to freedom.

Reconciliation should be accompanied by justice, otherwise it will not last. While we all hope for peace it shouldn’t be peace at any cost but peace based on principle, on justice.

– Corazon Aquino


I know my limitations, and I don’t like politics. I was only involved because of my husband.

– Corazon Aquino


It’s very simple, I just tell my sad story, and people weep.

I’m just a public-schoolboy. I’ve got a degree. I’m from a middle-class family in Devon. I’ve got no story.

Everyone asks me about being so worried or thinking about existence as if I’m the only person who can’t understand why a tree grows the way it does or why a person is in power when they’re not that great. These are questions everyone has.

– Chris Martin


I think that the fact that a relationship becomes public is a bit of a bummer. Because it can distract from the real reason why you’re together, which is that you just like each other.

– Chris Martin


You know, it’s possible for two humans to be in a relationship without there needing to be some public reason for that relationship.

– Chris Martin

I have heard show business characterized as a refuge for childlike persons in flight from all things harsh and real.

– Carroll O’Connor


One irreducible residual of 38 years in the business is the number of lasting, loving friendships I have made.

I have a new philosophy. I’m only going to dread one day at a time.

Christopher Dawson – 8 Quotes

 

8 Quotes by Christopher Dawson

 

And so, today, if the state can no longer appeal to the old moral principles that belong to the Christian tradition, it will be forced to create a new official faith and new moral principles which will be binding on its citizens.

– Christopher Dawson


You can give men food and leisure and amusements and good conditions of work, and still they will remain unsatisfied. You can deny them all these things, and they will not complain so long as they feel that they have something to die for.

– Christopher Dawson


The intercourse between the Mediterranean and the North or between the Atlantic and Central Europe was never purely economic or political it also meant the exchange of knowledge and ideas and the influence of social institutions and artistic and literary forms.

– Christopher Dawson


As soon as men decide that all means are permitted to fight an evil, then their good becomes indistinguishable from the evil that they set out to destroy.

– Christopher Dawson


Law describes the way things would work if men were angels.

– Christopher Dawson


Moreover, behind this vague tendency to treat religion as a side issue in modern life, there exists a strong body of opinion that is actively hostile to Christianity and that regards the destruction of positive religion as absolutely necessary to the advance of modern culture.

– Christopher Dawson


As I have pointed out, it is the Christian tradition that is the most fundamental element in Western culture. It lies at the base not only of Western religion, but also of Western morals and Western social idealism.

– Christopher Dawson


Every society rests in the last resort on the recognition of common principles and common ideals, and if it makes no moral or spiritual appeal to the loyalty of its members, it must inevitably fall to pieces.

– Christopher Dawson



Christopher Reeve – 9 Quotes

 

9 Quotes by Christopher Reeve

 

At first, dreams seem impossible, then improbable, and eventually inevitable.

– Christopher Reeve


So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.

– Christopher Reeve


Don’t give up. Don’t lose hope. Don’t sell out.

– Christopher Reeve


I have more awareness of other people and, I hope, more sensitivity to their needs. I also find that I’m more direct and outspoken.

– Christopher Reeve


What makes Superman a hero is not that he has power, but that he has the wisdom and the maturity to use the power wisely. From an acting point of view, that’s how I approached the part.

A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.

Carla Gugino – 8 Quotes

 

8 Quotes by Carla Gugino

 

For me, I never, never, from the moment I started acting, had a desire to be famous.

– Carla Gugino


When my friends have a health concern, they call me. I’ve always been a vitamin taker. I also take digestive enzymes and antioxidants, and supplements that help with the thyroid and adrenals for my time-zone changes.

– Carla Gugino


I love doing serious movies for adults.

– Carla Gugino


I’m intrigued by films that have a singular vision behind them. A lot of studio movies have ten writers by the time they’re done. You have a movie testing 200 times, making adjustments according to various people’s opinions. It’s difficult to have an undistilled vision.

– Carla Gugino


It is odd there are many movies with many men. But generally movies have one woman, or maybe the older woman and the younger girl.

– Carla Gugino


Unfortunately, ‘chick flick’ has become a term to describe most movies that I don’t even like. They’re these movies that, yes, have women in them but they really don’t reflect who women are, and there’s something kind of silly or shallow or gossipy about them.

– Carla Gugino


One of the things I really love about TV is this symbiotic relationship you can get between the writers and the actors, and the characters start to come to life because you start to collaborate.

– Carla Gugino


When a sports movie really works, it gets you on all levels, because the stakes are high. It’s black and white. It’s win or lose.

11 Quotes by Craig Bruce

 

Nothing surpasses the beauty and elegance of a bad idea.

Yeah, computers are going to take over the programming business because they have become so fast recently that they can solve the Halting Problem in five seconds flat.

– Craig Bruce


It’s funny how most activists are pacifists.

– Craig Bruce


It’s funny how social activists usually protest against the only things that have a credible chance of achieving the activists’ goals.

– Craig Bruce


Fighting a war on terrorism is like fighting against crime. We can never hope to eradicate crime, so we shouldn’t bother fighting it.

– Craig Bruce


Geez, all that money we waste on space exploration just think how many bombs that would buy!

– Craig Bruce


Why are people unemployed? Because there is no work. Why is there no work? Because people are not buying products and services. Why are people not buying products and services? Because they have no money. Why do people have no money? Because they are unemployed.

– Craig Bruce


Never underestimate the power of a simple tool.

– Craig Bruce


It’s a bit odd that nobody seems to be using the correct technical term to describe organized Islamic terrorists. They are not a faction of a religion or a social movement. They are a cult. A suicide cult.

– Craig Bruce


Don’t trust anyone who has been in school for the past 24 consecutive years.

– Craig Bruce



Cynthia Nixon – 11 Quotes

 

11 Quotes by Cynthia Nixon

 

In a school where everyone is famous or rich or whatever, you have a culture, ‘What does your dad do?’ ‘What does your mom do?’

– Cynthia Nixon


I feel that between my experience and my mother’s, breast cancer is a little bit like someone who lives next door. I know what that person looks like and what their daily habits are.

– Cynthia Nixon


I love spicy food.

– Cynthia Nixon


The idea of making access to safe abortions harder and more expensive and more difficult, having to travel across state lines – that puts women’s health and lives in jeopardy, which is something I think no one wants.

– Cynthia Nixon


Women are half the population and they know how to take care of themselves, if they are only given access to health care.

– Cynthia Nixon


Women’s health needs to be front and center – it often isn’t, but it needs to be.

– Cynthia Nixon


I’ve always been wary of marriage.

– Cynthia Nixon


We’ve all seen the mom who devotes all her time and attention to her child and is so hungry for adult interaction that as soon as she’s around another adult, she’s not paying attention anymore.

– Cynthia Nixon


I always like to start my morning with a good amount of fruit. I really like pineapple, particularly because of the enzymes that it has. Sometimes I have oatmeal. But if I’m feeling like I really want to be watching my weight more, then I definitely do a protein, like an omelet, scrambled eggs or some smoked salmon.

– Cynthia Nixon


I just want my relationship to be more for myself rather than a public statement.

– Cynthia Nixon


While I don’t often use the word, the technically precise term for my orientation is bisexual. I believe bisexuality is not a choice, it is a fact. What I have ‘chosen’ is to be in a gay relationship.

– Cynthia Nixon



Cesar Chavez – 8 Quotes

 

8 Quotes by Cesar Chavez

 

Real education should consist of drawing the goodness and the best out of our own students. What better books can there be than the book of humanity?

– Cesar Chavez


If you really want to make a friend, go to someone’s house and eat with him… the people who give you their food give you their heart.

– Cesar Chavez


It is possible to become discouraged about the injustice we see everywhere. But God did not promise us that the world would be humane and just. He gives us the gift of life and allows us to choose the way we will use our limited time on earth. It is an awesome opportunity.

– Cesar Chavez


When we are really honest with ourselves we must admit our lives are all that really belong to us. So it is how we use our lives that determines the kind of men we are.

– Cesar Chavez


Who gets the risks? The risks are given to the consumer, the unsuspecting consumer and the poor work force. And who gets the benefits? The benefits are only for the corporations, for the money makers.

– Cesar Chavez


There is no substitute for hard work, 23 or 24 hours a day. And there is no substitute for patience and acceptance.

– Cesar Chavez


From the depth of need and despair, people can work together, can organize themselves to solve their own problems and fill their own needs with dignity and strength.

– Cesar Chavez


We draw our strength from the very despair in which we have been forced to live. We shall endure.

– Cesar Chavez



Charles Eastman – 9 Quotes

 

9 Quotes by Charles Eastman

 

That is, we believed, the supreme duty of the parent, who only was permitted to claim in some degree the priestly office and function, since it is his creative and protecting power which alone approaches the solemn function of Deity.

– Charles Eastman


The clan is nothing more than a larger family, with its patriarchal chief as the natural head, and the union of several clans by intermarriage and voluntary connection constitutes the tribe.

– Charles Eastman


Friendship is held to be the severest test of character.

– Charles Eastman


There was no religious ceremony connected with marriage among us, while on the other hand the relation between man and woman was regarded as in itself mysterious and holy.

– Charles Eastman


There were no temples or shrines among us save those of nature.

– Charles Eastman


In every religion there is an element of the supernatural, varying with the influence of pure reason over its devotees.

– Charles Eastman


More than this, even in those white men who professed religion we found much inconsistency of conduct. They spoke much of spiritual things, while seeking only the material.

– Charles Eastman


The American Indian was an individualist in religion as in war. He had neither a national army nor an organized church.

– Charles Eastman


The religion of the Indian is the last thing about him that the man of another race will ever understand.

Curtis Stone – 13 Quotes

 

13 Quotes by Curtis Stone

 

For ‘Around the World in 80 Plates’ we got to travel all over, having what was like a cross between a culinary competition and races. And in each country we had a chef Ambassador. We went to London, Barcelona, Bologna, Hong Kong, Thailand, Morocco… It was amazing.

– Curtis Stone


When I see my staff take a step back because I’ve lost my cool about something food-related, I say never apologise for your standards. If someone doesn’t meet them, then you should explain that and that you want it changed. I want my staff to be like that, too.

– Curtis Stone


I had the opportunity to go to law school, and my dad, who was an accountant, couldn’t believe I wanted to walk away from that and start cooking.

– Curtis Stone


Now that I’m a dad, I’m practicing what I call ‘one- handed cooking,’ because I’ve got something more important in my other arm. I’m whipping up lots of frittatas and omelets.

– Curtis Stone


These days I travel so much it’s hard to get into a routine. When I’m on the road, I tend to use hotel gyms. When I’m home in L.A., I like to hike and hit the surf. All in all, I try to keep a balanced diet and exercise routine, which has stood me in good stead to date.

– Curtis Stone


For me, food is all about balance. If you eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, and an appropriate amount of poultry, fish, and red meat that are sourced from good places, you’re doing well. It’s important to make sure that the meat you’re consuming is hormone-free.

– Curtis Stone


In my travels, I also noticed that kids in Thailand like spicy food, and kids in India love curry. I’m hoping to introduce my son, Hudson, to lots of veggies and spices when he’s young. I say that before he’s started on solid foods, so it could be easier in theory than practice!

– Curtis Stone


It is great to add some glamour to the food industry, like television shows have done for the food world and inspiring people to work in the industry. The flip side of that is unfortunately people think that after they get their qualifications, they get their invitation to compete on ‘Top Chef.’

– Curtis Stone


Keep it simple in the kitchen. If you use quality ingredients, you don’t need anything fancy to make food delicious: just a knife, a cutting board, and some good nonstick cookware, and you’re set.

– Curtis Stone


There are probably close to a million people in the hospitality industry here in the United States, and there are probably only a few hundred opportunities in the food media industry.

– Curtis Stone


I love coming home to Melbourne. The first thing I do is have a coffee. It’s just so much better here than anywhere else. It’s better than in Italy and I travel a lot. I crave it.

– Curtis Stone


You’ve got to set yourself up to be as healthy as you can. The thing we tend to do is when it gets to be a bit too hard, we actually opt out for the absolute worst option. For example, if you’re in a rush in a morning and you feel like you don’t have time to make breakfast, you skip it.

– Curtis Stone


Each season I find myself constantly inspired by ‘The Biggest Loser’ contestants. Their tenacity and willingness to learn new, healthy habits is tremendous and the results speak for themselves. I am honored to be part of such an inspiring program that helps inspire positive change in so many lives.

– Curtis Stone



Charles Horton Cooley – 9 Quotes

 

9 Quotes by Charles Horton Cooley

 

An artist cannot fail it is a success to be one.

– Charles Horton Cooley


Our individual lives cannot, generally, be works of art unless the social order is also.

– Charles Horton Cooley


Failure sometimes enlarges the spirit. You have to fall back upon humanity and God.

– Charles Horton Cooley


Every general increase of freedom is accompanied by some degeneracy, attributable to the same causes as the freedom.

– Charles Horton Cooley


Institutions – government, churches, industries, and the like – have properly no other function than to contribute to human freedom and in so far as they fail, on the whole, to perform this function, they are wrong and need reconstruction.

– Charles Horton Cooley


So far as discipline is concerned, freedom means not its absence but the use of higher and more rational forms as contrasted with those that are lower or less rational.

– Charles Horton Cooley


If we divine a discrepancy between a man’s words and his character, the whole impression of him becomes broken and painful he revolts the imagination by his lack of unity, and even the good in him is hardly accepted.

– Charles Horton Cooley


The imaginations which people have of one another are the solid facts of society.

– Charles Horton Cooley


To get away from one’s working environment is, in a sense, to get away from one’s self and this is often the chief advantage of travel and change.

– Charles Horton Cooley



Craig Ferguson – 14 Quotes

 

14 Quotes by Craig Ferguson

 

I think that clearly it has an influence, to be coming of age during the punk rock era, to come from a difficult and sporadically violent background, to have been in and out of such chaos, I think it actually helps. But I don’t know for sure.

– Craig Ferguson


It’s the beauty and curse of doing a daily show. Some days you’ve got nothing to talk about and other days Dick Cheney shoots his lawyer in the face and everyone is happy.

– Craig Ferguson


It’s like, it’s kind of like if you ever had a car and it was a bit of a clunker but you love it, that’s my show. It’s a bit of a clunker but I know where everything is and I like it.

– Craig Ferguson


It’s not that we fly by the seat of our pants. We’re not afraid of failure.

– Craig Ferguson


Why do people do things that they fear? It may be that the fear contains information. Something can be interesting if you get to the other side of that fear.

– Craig Ferguson


I don’t know now if I’m funny. I just keep talking and hope that I hit something that’s funny.

– Craig Ferguson


I’ve started looking at my own father a bit funny. He assures me, though, that I really am the son of a Scottish postman.

– Craig Ferguson


I am reasonably happy. I didn’t find Jesus or anything like that. Part of it is that I just feel that I could go home. I did not feel like that for a long time, but I could go back now.

– Craig Ferguson


I hope what I do has an art to it, and as an artist you have to try new things and keep yourself entertained.

– Craig Ferguson


I realized women and humor were linked very closely.

– Craig Ferguson


I dropped out of high school when I was 16, after I had a huge argument with my English teacher over the meaning of the word ‘existentialism.’

– Craig Ferguson


I think I’m just someone that just tries to get by. I’m kind of – if it was during the Second World War, I’d be a black marketeer, I think.

– Craig Ferguson


If Scotland and America go to war, I’m afraid I’ve already sworn in.

– Craig Ferguson


The wedding took place in Vermont, where they have legalized gay civil unions, and I married a woman.

– Craig Ferguson



Corey Feldman – 14 Quotes

 

14 Quotes by Corey Feldman

 

My acting career began at age three and my parents got me into it. I was in a McDonald’s commercial.

– Corey Feldman


Fatherhood is the most amazing thing that could ever have happened in my life.

– Corey Feldman


I’d say that animal rights and environmental issues have always been at the forefront of my mind.

– Corey Feldman


It was a great experience for a kid, because it was a bunch of kids playing on pirate ships and water slides, so looking back on it, it was the fondest experience of my childhood.

– Corey Feldman


I do believe that belief is the most powerful thing we have in this world. So, if we believe in something enough. And we have faith, we can make it a reality. That is basically the basis of my entire career and my entire life.

– Corey Feldman


I literally was famous before I knew my own name.

– Corey Feldman


My discrepancy with children in the industry is that they are made famous before they know who they are as human beings.

– Corey Feldman


It’s funny I actually made poorer decisions when I sobered up then when I was screwed up.

– Corey Feldman


People always want to pin yesterday’s news on you, as opposed to asking you what you’re going to do for the future, what you’re doing today.

– Corey Feldman


Whereas I used to get depressed or neurotic or dwell on things, I see my son’s bright eyes and smile in the morning, and suddenly, I don’t feel like I’m depressed anymore. There’s nothing to be depressed about when you’ve got that.

– Corey Feldman


As a kid, I liked the ‘Halloween’ movies and ‘Nightmare On Elm Street’ and all that kind of stuff. But as an adult, I really don’t watch much horror, to be honest.

– Corey Feldman


I’m a big kid, I’m a kid at heart, so I still love the classic family films, such as the great Warner Bros film ‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’ – not the remake, but the original. It’s still one of the best movies, hands down, ever made, and of course that goes back to the ingenuity of the characters and the storyline.

– Corey Feldman


I’ve always kind of lived my life to be as much as possible a positive role model for children.

– Corey Feldman


If anything needs to get fixed in society, it’s people’s consumption of other people’s problems.

– Corey Feldman



Chinua Achebe – 14 Quotes

 

14 Quotes by Chinua Achebe

 

I don’t care about age very much.

– Chinua Achebe


Art is man’s constant effort to create for himself a different order of reality from that which is given to him.

– Chinua Achebe


The only thing we have learnt from experience is that we learn nothing from experience.

– Chinua Achebe


I tell my students, it’s not difficult to identify with somebody like yourself, somebody next door who looks like you. What’s more difficult is to identify with someone you don’t see, who’s very far away, who’s a different color, who eats a different kind of food. When you begin to do that then literature is really performing its wonders.

– Chinua Achebe


In fact, I thought that Christianity was very a good and a very valuable thing for us. But after a while, I began to feel that the story that I was told about this religion wasn’t perhaps completely whole, that something was left out.

– Chinua Achebe


The problem with leaderless uprisings taking over is that you don’t always know what you get at the other end. If you are not careful you could replace a bad government with one much worse!

– Chinua Achebe


Nigeria has had a complicated colonial history. My work has examined that part of our story extensively.

– Chinua Achebe


A functioning, robust democracy requires a healthy educated, participatory followership, and an educated, morally grounded leadership.

– Chinua Achebe


But I liked Yeats! That wild Irishman. I really loved his love of language, his flow. His chaotic ideas seemed to me just the right thing for a poet. Passion! He was always on the right side. He may be wrongheaded, but his heart was always on the right side. He wrote beautiful poetry.

– Chinua Achebe


I’ve had trouble now and again in Nigeria because I have spoken up about the mistreatment of factions in the country because of difference in religion. These are things we should put behind us.

When a tradition gathers enough strength to go on for centuries, you don’t just turn it off one day.

People say that if you find water rising up to your ankle, that’s the time to do something about it, not when it’s around your neck.

It is not a disgrace to fail. Failing is one of the greatest arts in the world.

The people of the Middle East share the desire for freedom. We have an opportunity – and an obligation – to help them turn this desire into reality.

– Condoleezza Rice


The U.S. has since the end of World War II had an answer – we stand for free peoples and free markets, we are willing to support and defend them – we will sustain a balance of power that favors freedom.

– Condoleezza Rice


The essence of America – that which really unites us – is not ethnicity, or nationality or religion – it is an idea – and what an idea it is: That you can come from humble circumstances and do great things.

– Condoleezza Rice


After all, when the world looks to America, they look to us because we are the most successful political and economic experiment in human history.

– Condoleezza Rice


We’ve been a country that’s been fortunate to be protected by two oceans, to not have serious attacks on our territory for most of our history. And we were unfortunately reminded in a very devastating way of our vulnerability.

– Condoleezza Rice


We know that there are unaccounted-for Scud and other ballistic missiles in Iraq. And part of the problem is that, since 1998, there has been no way to even get minimal information about those programs except through intelligence means.

I talked about the need for American leadership, I talked about the importance of the United States to a more peaceful world, a world that has been quite turbulent in recent years, and needs a strong American anchor.
