Well, I think a lot of people just want to be famous.

Dan Fogler

My goal is people associate November with COPD awareness month as much as they notice October with breast cancer and pink. That'd be a great thing if it happened. The fact that COPD kills more people than breast cancer and diabetes put together should raise some red flags.

Danica Patrick

I think it can be hard for any man to sometimes be upstaged by his wife. So when I'm home, I work very hard to be Todd's wife and Jade's mother. I have no problem going back to those traditional roles. I try to be Giada, the young girl that he met 20 years ago and fell in love with.

Giada De Laurentiis

Shania Twain

To act on the belief that we possess the knowledge and the power which enable us to shape the processes of society entirely to our liking, knowledge which in fact we do not possess, is likely to make us do much harm.

Friedrich August von Hayek

Good breeding is the result of good sense, some good nature, and a little self-denial for the sake of others.

Lord Chesterfield

Theodore Isaac Rubin

If there's ever an example that military power alone cannot be successful in Afghanistan, I think it was the Soviet experience.

Robert M. Gates

Isn't it amazing the way the future succeeds in creating an appropriate past?

John Leonard

Another parent's different approach raises the possibility that you've made a mistake with your child. We simply can't tolerate that because we fear that any mistake, no matter how minor, could have devastating consequences. So we proclaim the superiority of our own choices. We've lost sight of the fact that people have preferences.

Ayelet Waldman

To apologize is to lay the foundation for a future offense.

Ambrose Bierce
