– Lindsay Lohan


I’m 20 years old. I like to party as much as anyone my age. Going clubbing is my way of relaxing or releasing a lot of stress. I don’t feel that I should have to justify that part of my life. I don’t know that I’m necessarily an addict.

– Lindsay Lohan


I’m not skinny for the wrong reasons. It’s not because I’m bulimic or anorexic or doing drugs. Compared to a lot of actresses my age, I’m actually overweight.

This is what I asked for, and in this day and age that’s what actually goes on.

– Leonardo DiCaprio


I have learned from my experiences in this industry that there is absolutely no way to control people’s opinions on your performance in your movie. You go out there, promote your film and hope people like the work you did.

– Leonardo DiCaprio


I just want to keep doing what I’m doing and hopefully people will watch my movies.

– Leonardo DiCaprio

Black leadership has to recognize that principles more than speech, character more than a claim, is greater in advancing the cause of our liberation than what has transpired thus far.

Ludwig Wittgenstein – 17 Quotes

 

17 Quotes by Ludwig Wittgenstein

 

Not every religion has to have St. Augustine’s attitude to sex. Why even in our culture marriages are celebrated in a church, everyone present knows what is going to happen that night, but that doesn’t prevent it being a religious ceremony.

– Ludwig Wittgenstein


The human body is the best picture of the human soul.

– Ludwig Wittgenstein


Death is not an event in life: we do not live to experience death. If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present.

Don’t get involved in partial problems, but always take flight to where there is a free view over the whole single great problem, even if this view is still not a clear one.

The logic of the world is prior to all truth and falsehood.

– Ludwig Wittgenstein


When one is frightened of the truth then it is never the whole truth that one has an inkling of.

Some people are willing to betray years of friendship just to get a little bit of the spotlight.

– Lauren Conrad


Everyone has that friend who’s every day, like, ‘I hate my nose, I hate my nose, I hate my nose.’ You either need to come to peace with it and be like, alright, I hate it, but it’s part of me – or change it. So I’m not against plastic surgery, I’m against plastic surgery when it doesn’t really need to be done.

– Lauren Conrad


The first series I wrote, ‘L.A. Candy,’ was always meant to be a three-book series, so when I started out it was all outlined that way and by the time I was done with the third book, I had become so involved and the process and the stories, I was a little bit sad to be done.

Lauryn Hill – 17 Quotes

 

17 Quotes by Lauryn Hill

 

When I was working, and when I was making substantial amounts of money, I always filed and paid my taxes. This only stopped, when it was necessary to withdraw from society, in order to guarantee the safety and well-being of myself and my family.

– Lauryn Hill


I do support artists standing by their beliefs and walking with integrity. We have to find a better way to commercially exploit music while giving artists their proper respect.

– Lauryn Hill


For the past several years, I have remained what others would consider underground. I did this in order to build a community of people, like-minded in their desire for freedom and the right to pursue their goals and lives without being manipulated and controlled by a media protected military industrial complex with a completely different agenda.

– Lauryn Hill


Everything we do should be a result of our gratitude for what God has done for us.

– Lauryn Hill


As musicians and artists, it’s important we have an environment – and I guess when I say environment, I really mean the industry, that really nurtures these gifts. Oftentimes, the machine can overlook the need to take care of the people who produce the sounds that have a lot to do with the health and well-being of society.

– Lauryn Hill


This life is a process of learning.

– Lauryn Hill


We can’t plan life. All we can do is be available for it.

– Lauryn Hill


Over-commercialization and its resulting restrictions and limitations can be very damaging and distorting to the inherent nature of the individual. I did not deliberately abandon my fans, nor did I deliberately abandon any responsibilities.

– Lauryn Hill


Since those who believe they need a hero/celebrity outnumber the actual heroes/celebrities, people feel safe and comfortably justified in numbers, committing egregious crimes in the name of the greater social ego. Ironically diminishing their own true hero-celebrity nature in the process.

– Lauryn Hill


Be honest, brutally honest. That is what’s going to maintain relationships.

– Lauryn Hill


Real religion is no religion at all.

– Lauryn Hill


People need to understand that the Lauryn Hill they were exposed to in the beginning was all that was allowed in that arena at the time. I had to step away for the sake of the machine. I was being way too compromised. I felt uncomfortable having to smile in someone’s face when I really didn’t like them or know them well enough to like.

– Lauryn Hill


Reality is easy. It’s deception that’s the hard work.

– Lauryn Hill
