If you’re truly in a band and you guys have been together for a long time, there’s a family bond that you have. In fact, I’ve talked about this with therapists, especially if you’re talking about a relationship, because when you’re with somebody, you’re going to your family, and she’s alone.

– Gary Allan

Georges Bataille – 3 Quotes

Graeme Le Saux – 5 Quotes

 

5 Quotes by Graeme Le Saux

Cigarettes and coffee: an alcoholic’s best friend!

– Gerard Way


Remember the first time you went to a show and saw your favorite band. You wore their shirt, and sang every word. You didn’t know anything about scene politics, haircuts, or what was cool. All you knew was that this music made you feel different from anyone you shared a locker with. Someone finally understood you. This is what music is about.

– Gerard Way


There was a moment in my life when I really wanted to kill myself. And there was one other moment when I was close to that. But even in my most jaded times, I had some hope.

Gary Locke – 5 Quotes

 

5 Quotes by Gary Locke

 

The U.S. tries to provide immigrants who grow up here with a world-class education and imbue them with the can-do attitude that has long defined American innovation.

– Gary Locke


My dad, of course, like a lot of Asian parents, wanted me to be an engineer or doctor and never could understand why I would want to be a lawyer. And then, when I first said I wanted to run for office, he thought that was absolutely insane.

Gary Neville – 4 Quotes

 

4 Quotes by Gary Neville

– Gary Neville


I developed a mechanism so that whatever mistakes I made, I would bounce straight back. Whatever was happening off the pitch, I could put it to one side and maintain my form. Call it mental resilience or a strong mind, but that is what we mean when we talk about experience in a football team.

It is one of my pet hates when I see players who have agents who do everything for them. They don’t know how to set up their own bank accounts, they don’t know what they are spending their money on and they can’t make their own decisions.

– Gwen Moore


It is essential that the women’s preventive coverage benefit, including contraception, be available to all women, regardless of what health plan they have or where they work – as Congress intended. Providing access to birth control just makes good sense.

– Gwen Moore


It is important for women to have a choice, to have an opportunity to plan their families, because if they don’t, the Republicans have said this is an ownership society. You are on your own, and they’re going to begrudge that child everything, from WIC to a Pell Grant to health insurance.

– Gwen Moore


When elected officials abandon our environment and ruin our natural resources, public health is endangered. I know the importance of providing a clean environment for our children I have attended more than one funeral for a child who has died from an asthma attack.

Gary Lineker – 4 Quotes

 

4 Quotes by Gary Lineker

– Gary Lineker


Football is a simple game. Twenty-two men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans always win.

– Gary Lineker


We have got too many kids around the house to have a romantic meal at home. But Danielle is a fantastic cook. She does a brilliant lasagne, great roasts and a great chilli dish. She knows the way to my heart.

– Gary Lineker
