There are two kinds of teachers: the kind that fill you with so much quail shot that you can't move, and the kind that just gives you a little prod behind and you jump to the skies.

Robert Frost

I've been writing a lot of poetry recently. It helps me think and work things out.

Ed Westwick

Growing up going to Christian school and the concept that you're born a sinner and you don't really have a choice to change who you are has been hammered into my head and created the entire reason why I made art and made a band and made records called 'Antichrist Superstar.'

Marilyn Manson

I think it is an immutable law in business that words are words, explanations are explanations, promises are promises - but only performance is reality.

Harold S. Geneen

The cross is the centre of all this in every respect.

John Nelson Darby

The only people who live in a post-black world are four people who live in a little white house on Pennsylvania Avenue. The idea that America is post-racial or post-black because a man I admire, Barack Obama, is president of the United States, is a joke.

Angelina Jolie

You can't leave out half the world's experience and expect to address all the problems. Women communicate differently and process information differently, which leads them to resolve conflicts differently.

Dee Dee Myers

I pity the French Cinema because it has no money. I pity the American Cinema because it has no ideas.

Jean-Luc Godard

There is a single light of science, and to brighten it anywhere is to brighten it everywhere.
