Barack Obama | anniversary quotes

We have an obligation and a responsibility to be investing in our students and our schools. We must make sure that people who have the grades the desire and the will but not the money can still get the best education possible.

Barack Obama | best quotes

But what we can do as flawed as we are is still see God in other people and do our best to help them find their own grace. That's what I strive to do that's what I pray to do every day.

Barack Obama | best quotes

I know my country has not perfected itself. At times we've struggled to keep the promise of liberty and equality for all of our people. We've made our share of mistakes and there are times when our actions around the world have not lived up to our best intentions.

Barack Obama | best quotes

In fact the best thing we could do on taxes for all Americans is to simplify the individual tax code. This will be a tough job but members of both parties have expressed an interest in doing this and I am prepared to join them.

Barack Obama | best quotes

We can choose a future where we export more products and outsource fewer jobs. After a decade that was defined by what we bought and borrowed we're getting back to basics and doing what America has always done best: We're making things again.

Barack Obama | best quotes

It's time to fundamentally change the way that we do business in Washington. To help build a new foundation for the 21st century we need to reform our government so that it is more efficient more transparent and more creative. That will demand new thinking and a new sense of responsibility for every dollar that is spent.

Barack Obama | business quotes

If you were successful somebody along the line gave you some help... Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you've got a business - you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen.

Barack Obama | business quotes

I miss Saturday morning rolling out of bed not shaving getting into my car with my girls driving to the supermarket squeezing the fruit getting my car washed taking walks.

Barack Obama | car quotes

It's time to fundamentally change the way that we do business in Washington.

Barack Obama | change quotes

Let me be absolutely clear. Israel is a strong friend of Israel's. It will be a strong friend of Israel's under a McCain administration. It will be a strong friend of Israel's under an Obama administration. So that policy is not going to change.

Barack Obama | change quotes

I don't care whether you're driving a hybrid or an SUV. If you're headed for a cliff you have to change direction. That's what the American people called for in November and that's what we intend to deliver.

Barack Obama | change quotes

Now we're in the midst of not just advocating for change not just calling for change - we're doing the grinding sometimes frustrating work of delivering change - inch by inch day by day.

Barack Obama | change quotes

Of course there is no question that Libya - and the world - will be better off with Gaddafi out of power. I along with many other world leaders have embraced that goal and will actively pursue it through non-military means. But broadening our military mission to include regime change would be a mistake.

Barack Obama | change quotes

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.

Barack Obama | change quotes

We have an obligation and a responsibility to be investing in our students and our schools. We must make sure that people who have the grades the desire and the will but not the money can still get the best education possible.

Barack Obama | education quotes

Cutting the deficit by gutting our investments in innovation and education is like lightening an overloaded airplane by removing its engine. It may make you feel like you're flying high at first but it won't take long before you feel the impact.

Barack Obama | education quotes

You can choose a future where more Americans have the chance to gain the skills they need to compete no matter how old they are or how much money they have. Education was the gateway to opportunity for me. It was the gateway for Michelle. And now more than ever it is the gateway to a middle-class life.

Barack Obama | education quotes

We can't get to the $4 trillion in savings that we need by just cutting the 12 percent of the budget that pays for things like medical research and education funding and food inspectors and the weather service. And we can't just do it by making seniors pay more for Medicare.

Barack Obama | education quotes

I know my country has not perfected itself. At times we've struggled to keep the promise of liberty and equality for all of our people. We've made our share of mistakes and there are times when our actions around the world have not lived up to our best intentions.

Barack Obama | equality quotes

With patient and firm determination I am going to press on for jobs. I'm going to press on for equality. I'm going to press on for the sake of our children. I'm going to press on for the sake of all those families who are struggling right now. I don't have time to feel sorry for myself. I don't have time to complain. I am going to press on.

Barack Obama | equality quotes

In America there's a failure to appreciate Europe's leading role in the world.

Barack Obama | failure quotes

The Bush Administration's failure to be consistently involved in helping Israel achieve peace with the Palestinians has been both wrong for our friendship with Israel as well as badly damaging to our standing in the Arab world.

Barack Obama | failure quotes

So while I will never minimize the costs involved in military action I am convinced that a failure to act in Libya would have carried a far greater price for America.

Barack Obama | failure quotes

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America's debt.

Barack Obama | failure quotes

My family frankly they weren't folks who went to church every week. My mother was one of the most spiritual people I knew but she didn't raise me in the church so I came to my Christian faith later in life and it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead.

Barack Obama | faith quotes

My parents shared not only an improbable love they shared an abiding faith in the possibilities of this nation. They would give me an African name Barack or blessed believing that in a tolerant America your name is no barrier to success.

Barack Obama | faith quotes

You know my faith is one that admits some doubt.

Barack Obama | faith quotes

What I think is fair to say is that coming out of the Republican camp there have been efforts to suggest that perhaps I'm not who I say I am when it comes to my faith - something which I find deeply offensive and that has been going on for a pretty long time.

Barack Obama | faith quotes

My family frankly they weren't folks who went to church every week. My mother was one of the most spiritual people I knew but she didn't raise me in the church so I came to my Christian faith later in life and it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead.

Barack Obama | family quotes

It was the labor movement that helped secure so much of what we take for granted today. The 40-hour work week the minimum wage family leave health insurance Social Security Medicare retirement plans. The cornerstones of the middle-class security all bear the union label.

Barack Obama | family quotes

I can make a firm pledge under my plan no family making less than $250 000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax not your payroll tax not your capital gains taxes not any of your taxes.

Barack Obama | family quotes

But let me perfectly clear because I know you'll hear the same old claims that rolling back these tax breaks means a massive tax increase on the American people: if your family earns less than $250 000 a year you will not see your taxes increased a single dime. I repeat: not one single dime.

Barack Obama | family quotes

I have Muslim members of my family. I have lived in Muslim countries.

Barack Obama | family quotes

On every front there are clear answers out there that can make this country stronger but we're going to break through the fear and the frustration people are feeling. Our job is to make sure that even as we make progress that we are also giving people a sense of hope and vision for the future.

Barack Obama | fear quotes

We can't get to the $4 trillion in savings that we need by just cutting the 12 percent of the budget that pays for things like medical research and education funding and food inspectors and the weather service. And we can't just do it by making seniors pay more for Medicare.

Barack Obama | food quotes

We the People recognize that we have responsibilities as well as rights that our destinies are bound together that a freedom which only asks what's in it for me a freedom without a commitment to others a freedom without love or charity or duty or patriotism is unworthy of our founding ideals and those who died in their defense.

Barack Obama | freedom quotes

For more than four decades the Libyan people have been ruled by a tyrant - Moammar Gaddafi. He has denied his people freedom exploited their wealth murdered opponents at home and abroad and terrorized innocent people around the world - including Americans who were killed by Libyan agents.

Barack Obama | freedom quotes

The Bush Administration's failure to be consistently involved in helping Israel achieve peace with the Palestinians has been both wrong for our friendship with Israel as well as badly damaging to our standing in the Arab world.

Barack Obama | friendship quotes

To avoid being mistaken for a sellout I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets.

Barack Obama | friendship quotes

On every front there are clear answers out there that can make this country stronger but we're going to break through the fear and the frustration people are feeling. Our job is to make sure that even as we make progress that we are also giving people a sense of hope and vision for the future.

Barack Obama | future quotes

The future rewards those who press on. I don't have time to feel sorry for myself. I don't have time to complain. I'm going to press on.

Barack Obama | future quotes

We can choose a future where we export more products and outsource fewer jobs. After a decade that was defined by what we bought and borrowed we're getting back to basics and doing what America has always done best: We're making things again.

Barack Obama | future quotes

As I've said there were patriots who supported this war and patriots who opposed it. And all of us are united in appreciation for our servicemen and women and our hopes for Iraqis' future.

Barack Obama | future quotes

You can choose a future where more Americans have the chance to gain the skills they need to compete no matter how old they are or how much money they have. Education was the gateway to opportunity for me. It was the gateway for Michelle. And now more than ever it is the gateway to a middle-class life.

Barack Obama | future quotes

Our combat mission is ending but our commitment to Iraq's future is not.

Barack Obama | future quotes

But what we can do as flawed as we are is still see God in other people and do our best to help them find their own grace. That's what I strive to do that's what I pray to do every day.

Barack Obama | god quotes

We worship an awesome God in the Blue States and we don't like federal agents poking around our libraries in the Red States. We coach Little League in the Blue States and have gay friends in the Red States.

Barack Obama | god quotes

And I will do everything that I can as long as I am President of the United States to remind the American people that we are one nation under God and we may call that God different names but we remain one nation.

Barack Obama | god quotes

If the critics are right that I've made all my decisions based on polls then I must not be very good at reading them.

Barack Obama | good quotes

A good compromise a good piece of legislation is like a good sentence or a good piece of music. Everybody can recognize it. They say 'Huh. It works. It makes sense.'

Barack Obama | good quotes

I think when you spread the wealth around it's good for everybody.

Barack Obama | good quotes

What I worry about would be that you essentially have two chambers the House and the Senate but you have simply majoritarian absolute power on either side. And that's just not what the founders intended.

Barack Obama | government quotes

It's time to fundamentally change the way that we do business in Washington. To help build a new foundation for the 21st century we need to reform our government so that it is more efficient more transparent and more creative. That will demand new thinking and a new sense of responsibility for every dollar that is spent.

Barack Obama | government quotes

If the people cannot trust their government to do the job for which it exists - to protect them and to promote their common welfare - all else is lost.

Barack Obama | government quotes

The Internet didn't get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet. The point is is that when we succeed we succeed because of our individual initiative but also because we do things together.

Barack Obama | government quotes

One of the great strengths of the United States is... we have a very large Christian population - we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values.

Barack Obama | great quotes

I cannot swallow whole the view of Lincoln as the Great Emancipator.

Barack Obama | great quotes

It was the labor movement that helped secure so much of what we take for granted today. The 40-hour work week the minimum wage family leave health insurance Social Security Medicare retirement plans. The cornerstones of the middle-class security all bear the union label.

Barack Obama | health quotes

After a century of striving after a year of debate after a historic vote health care reform is no longer an unmet promise. It is the law of the land.

Barack Obama | health quotes

And so our goal on health care is if we can get instead of health care costs going up 6 percent a year it's going up at the level of inflation maybe just slightly above inflation we've made huge progress. And by the way that is the single most important thing we could do in terms of reducing our deficit. That's why we did it.

Barack Obama | health quotes

But if you - if what - the reports are true what they're saying is is that as a consequence of us getting 30 million additional people health care at the margins that's going to increase our costs we knew that.

Barack Obama | health quotes

I want to reform the tax code so that it's simple fair and asks the wealthiest households to pay higher taxes on incomes over $250 000 - the same rate we had when Bill Clinton was president the same rate we had when our economy created nearly 23 million new jobs the biggest surplus in history and a lot of millionaires to boot.

Barack Obama | history quotes

We've persevered because of a belief we share with the Iraqi people - a belief that out of the ashes of war a new beginning could be born in this cradle of civilization. Through this remarkable chapter in the history of the United States and Iraq we have met our responsibility. Now it's time to turn the page.

Barack Obama | history quotes

I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president - with the possible exceptions of Johnson FDR and Lincoln - just in terms of what we've gotten done in modern history. But you know but when it comes to the economy we've got a lot more work to do. And we're gonna keep on at it.

Barack Obama | history quotes

So long as I'm Commander-in-Chief we will sustain the strongest military the world has ever known. When you take off the uniform we will serve you as well as you've served us - because no one who fights for this country should have to fight for a job or a roof over their head or the care that they need when they come home.

Barack Obama | home quotes

For more than four decades the Libyan people have been ruled by a tyrant - Moammar Gaddafi. He has denied his people freedom exploited their wealth murdered opponents at home and abroad and terrorized innocent people around the world - including Americans who were killed by Libyan agents.

Barack Obama | home quotes

In the end that's what this election is about. Do we participate in a politics of cynicism or a politics of hope?

Barack Obama | hope quotes

On every front there are clear answers out there that can make this country stronger but we're going to break through the fear and the frustration people are feeling. Our job is to make sure that even as we make progress that we are also giving people a sense of hope and vision for the future.

Barack Obama | hope quotes

Where the stakes are the highest in the war on terror we cannot possibly succeed without extraordinary international cooperation. Effective international police actions require the highest degree of intelligence sharing planning and collaborative enforcement.

Barack Obama | intelligence quotes

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America's debt.

Barack Obama | leadership quotes

We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK. That's not leadership. That's not going to happen.

Barack Obama | leadership quotes

My family frankly they weren't folks who went to church every week. My mother was one of the most spiritual people I knew but she didn't raise me in the church so I came to my Christian faith later in life and it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead.

Barack Obama | life quotes

Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential.

Barack Obama | life quotes

We the People recognize that we have responsibilities as well as rights that our destinies are bound together that a freedom which only asks what's in it for me a freedom without a commitment to others a freedom without love or charity or duty or patriotism is unworthy of our founding ideals and those who died in their defense.

Barack Obama | love quotes

My parents shared not only an improbable love they shared an abiding faith in the possibilities of this nation. They would give me an African name Barack or blessed believing that in a tolerant America your name is no barrier to success.

Barack Obama | love quotes

I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage. But when you start playing around with constitutions just to prohibit somebody who cares about another person it just seems to me that's not what America's about. Usually our constitutions expand liberties they don't contract them.

Barack Obama | marriage quotes

I opposed the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996. It should be repealed and I will vote for its repeal on the Senate floor. I will also oppose any proposal to amend the U.S. Constitution to ban gays and lesbians from marrying.

Barack Obama | marriage quotes

What I believe is that marriage is between a man and a woman but what I also believe is that we have an obligation to make sure that gays and lesbians have the rights of citizenship that afford them visitations to hospitals that allow them to be to transfer property between partners to make certain that they're not discriminated on the job.

Barack Obama | marriage quotes

I think there are a whole host of things that are civil rights and then there are other things - such as traditional marriage - that I think express a community's concern and regard for a particular institution.

Barack Obama | marriage quotes

I don't think marriage is a civil right but I think that being able to transfer property is a civil right.

Barack Obama | marriage quotes

We can't get to the $4 trillion in savings that we need by just cutting the 12 percent of the budget that pays for things like medical research and education funding and food inspectors and the weather service. And we can't just do it by making seniors pay more for Medicare.

Barack Obama | medical quotes

We need somebody who's got the heart the empathy to recognize what it's like to be a young teenage mom the empathy to understand what it's like to be poor or African-American or gay or disabled or old - and that's the criterion by which I'll be selecting my judges.

Barack Obama | mom quotes

Money is not the only answer but it makes a difference.

Barack Obama | money quotes

I mean I do think at a certain point you've made enough money.

Barack Obama | money quotes

The Internet didn't get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet. The point is is that when we succeed we succeed because of our individual initiative but also because we do things together.

Barack Obama | money quotes

I know that campaigns can seem small and even silly. Trivial things become big distractions. Serious issues become sound bites. And the truth gets buried under an avalanche of money and advertising. If you're sick of hearing me approve this message believe me - so am I.

Barack Obama | money quotes

You can choose a future where more Americans have the chance to gain the skills they need to compete no matter how old they are or how much money they have. Education was the gateway to opportunity for me. It was the gateway for Michelle. And now more than ever it is the gateway to a middle-class life.

Barack Obama | money quotes

We have an obligation and a responsibility to be investing in our students and our schools. We must make sure that people who have the grades the desire and the will but not the money can still get the best education possible.

Barack Obama | money quotes

We need earmark reform and when I'm President I will go line by line to make sure that we are not spending money unwisely.

Barack Obama | money quotes

I miss Saturday morning rolling out of bed not shaving getting into my car with my girls driving to the supermarket squeezing the fruit getting my car washed taking walks.

Barack Obama | morning quotes

A good compromise a good piece of legislation is like a good sentence or a good piece of music. Everybody can recognize it. They say 'Huh. It works. It makes sense.'

Barack Obama | music quotes

When we think of the major threats to our national security the first to come to mind are nuclear proliferation rogue states and global terrorism. But another kind of threat lurks beyond our shores one from nature not humans - an avian flu pandemic.

Barack Obama | nature quotes

We the People recognize that we have responsibilities as well as rights that our destinies are bound together that a freedom which only asks what's in it for me a freedom without a commitment to others a freedom without love or charity or duty or patriotism is unworthy of our founding ideals and those who died in their defense.

Barack Obama | patriotism quotes

The Bush Administration's failure to be consistently involved in helping Israel achieve peace with the Palestinians has been both wrong for our friendship with Israel as well as badly damaging to our standing in the Arab world.

Barack Obama | peace quotes

In the end that's what this election is about. Do we participate in a politics of cynicism or a politics of hope?

Barack Obama | politics quotes

There is probably a perverse pride in my administration... that we were going to do the right thing even if short-term it was unpopular. And I think anybody who's occupied this office has to remember that success is determined by an intersection in policy and politics and that you can't be neglecting of marketing and P.R. and public opinion.

Barack Obama | politics quotes

Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time is because we're hardwired not to always think clearly when we're scared. And the country's scared.

Barack Obama | politics quotes

And we can see the positive impacts right here at Solyndra. Less than a year ago we were standing on what was an empty lot.But through the Recovery Act this company received a loan to expand its operations. This new factory is the result of those loans.

Barack Obama | positive quotes

Here at this site Solyndra expects to make enough solar panels each year to generate 500 megawatts of electricity. And over the lifetime of this expanded facility that could be like replacing as many as eight coal-fired power plants.

Barack Obama | power quotes

Tonight we gather to affirm the greatness of our nation - not because of the height of our skyscrapers or the power of our military or the size of our economy. Our pride is based on a very simple premise summed up in a declaration made over two hundred years ago.

Barack Obama | power quotes

What I worry about would be that you essentially have two chambers the House and the Senate but you have simply majoritarian absolute power on either side. And that's just not what the founders intended.

Barack Obama | power quotes

As a nuclear power - as the only nuclear power to have used a nuclear weapon - the United States has a moral responsibility to act.

Barack Obama | power quotes

Of course there is no question that Libya - and the world - will be better off with Gaddafi out of power. I along with many other world leaders have embraced that goal and will actively pursue it through non-military means. But broadening our military mission to include regime change would be a mistake.

Barack Obama | power quotes

It's not surprising then they get bitter they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

Barack Obama | religion quotes

It was not a religion that attacked us that September day. It was al-Qaeda. We will not sacrifice the liberties we cherish or hunker down behind walls of suspicion and mistrust.

Barack Obama | religion quotes

Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time is because we're hardwired not to always think clearly when we're scared. And the country's scared.

Barack Obama | science quotes

In December I agreed to extend the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans because it was the only way I could prevent a tax hike on middle-class Americans. But we cannot afford $1 trillion worth of tax cuts for every millionaire and billionaire in our society. We can't afford it. And I refuse to renew them again.

Barack Obama | society quotes

My parents shared not only an improbable love they shared an abiding faith in the possibilities of this nation. They would give me an African name Barack or blessed believing that in a tolerant America your name is no barrier to success.

Barack Obama | success quotes

There is probably a perverse pride in my administration... that we were going to do the right thing even if short-term it was unpopular. And I think anybody who's occupied this office has to remember that success is determined by an intersection in policy and politics and that you can't be neglecting of marketing and P.R. and public opinion.

Barack Obama | success quotes

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.

Barack Obama | time quotes

The future rewards those who press on. I don't have time to feel sorry for myself. I don't have time to complain. I'm going to press on.

Barack Obama | time quotes

With patient and firm determination I am going to press on for jobs. I'm going to press on for equality. I'm going to press on for the sake of our children. I'm going to press on for the sake of all those families who are struggling right now. I don't have time to feel sorry for myself. I don't have time to complain. I am going to press on.

Barack Obama | time quotes

Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time is because we're hardwired not to always think clearly when we're scared. And the country's scared.

Barack Obama | time quotes

Barack Obama | time quotes

We need to internalize this idea of excellence. Not many folks spend a lot of time trying to be excellent.

Barack Obama | time quotes

What I think is fair to say is that coming out of the Republican camp there have been efforts to suggest that perhaps I'm not who I say I am when it comes to my faith - something which I find deeply offensive and that has been going on for a pretty long time.

Barack Obama | time quotes

People of Berlin - people of the world - this is our moment. This is our time.

Barack Obama | time quotes

We've persevered because of a belief we share with the Iraqi people - a belief that out of the ashes of war a new beginning could be born in this cradle of civilization.

Barack Obama | time quotes

We all knew this. We all knew that it would take more time than any of us want to dig ourselves out of this hole created by this economic crisis.

Barack Obama | time quotes

It's time to fundamentally change the way that we do business in Washington. To help build a new foundation for the 21st century we need to reform our government so that it is more efficient more transparent and more creative. That will demand new thinking and a new sense of responsibility for every dollar that is spent.

Barack Obama | time quotes

If the people cannot trust their government to do the job for which it exists - to protect them and to promote their common welfare - all else is lost.

Barack Obama | trust quotes

I know that campaigns can seem small and even silly. Trivial things become big distractions. Serious issues become sound bites. And the truth gets buried under an avalanche of money and advertising. If you're sick of hearing me approve this message believe me - so am I.

Operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and the war on terrorism have reduced the pace of military transformation and have revealed our lack of preparation for defensive and stability operations. This Administration has overextended our military.

A new tower rises above the New York skyline al Qaeda is on the path to defeat and Osama bin Laden is dead.

Barack Obama | war quotes

No party has a monopoly on wisdom. No democracy works without compromise.

Barbara Ehrenreich | fear quotes

We who officially value freedom of speech above life itself seem to have nothing to talk about but the weather.

Bell Hooks | alone quotes

Death is with you all the time you get deeper in it as you move towards it but it's not unfamiliar to you. It's always been there so what becomes unfamiliar to you when you pass away from the moment is really life.

Bell Hooks | death quotes

What's really sad is that so many young women between the ages of 16 and 25 are ignorant and they already believe that women get the same pay as men. They don't even really understand that equality hasn't happened with the pay force.

Bell Hooks | fear quotes

I have been thinking about the notion of perfect love as being without fear and what that means for us in a world that's becoming increasingly xenophobic tortured by fundamentalism and nationalism.

Bell Hooks | time quotes

I'm such a girl for the living room. I really like to stay in my nest and not move. I travel in my mind and that that's a rigorous state of journeying for me. My body isn't that interested in moving from place to place.

Bell Hooks | travel quotes

Many spiritual teachers - in Buddhism in Islam - have talked about first-hand experience of the world as an important part of the path to wisdom to enlightenment.

Bell Hooks | wisdom quotes

No other group in America has so had their identity socialized out of existence as have black women... When black people are talked about the focus tends to be on black men and when women are talked about the focus tends to be on white women.

Bell Hooks | women quotes

I'm so disturbed when my women students behave as though they can only read women or black students behave as though they can only read blacks or white students behave as though they can only identify with a white writer.

Rumors about me? Calista Flockhart Pam Anderson and Matt Damon. That's who I'm dating.

Ben Affleck | dating quotes

I'm much more interested in what an actor has to say about something substantial and important than who they're dating or what clothes they're wearing or some other asinine insignificant aspect of their life.

Ben Affleck | dating quotes

Sure I suffered a lot. But it's not like the end of the world and it's not who I am. I lead quite a pleasant life and I'm able to divorce a perceived reality from my actual experience of life.

Ben Affleck | experience quotes

I find forgiveness to be really healthy.

Ben Affleck | forgiveness quotes

I grew up in a home environment where I wasn't getting esteem for anything I did.

Ben Affleck | home quotes

I'm not the type of guy who enjoys one-night stands. It leaves me feeling very empty and cynical. It's not even fun sexually. I need to feel something for the woman and entertain the vain hope that it may lead to a relationship.

Ben Affleck | hope quotes

I've finally learnt how to say 'No comment'. To appear in the tabloids is a real learning curve and a steep one at that. You had better learn quick or you get burnt.

Marriage hasn't been my thing. But gay people knock yourselves out!

Ben Affleck | mom quotes

My mother gets all mad at me if I stay in a hotel. I'm 31-years-old and I don't want to sleep on a sleeping bag down in the basement. It's humiliating.

Ben Affleck | mom quotes

A friend of my mom's was a casting director so really as kind of a lark I had a couple of acting jobs that had just enough exposure to give me the option to continue if I wanted to. I followed through with it.

Ben Affleck | mom quotes

But when I felt like I had something to prove? Then I got up early every morning and worked all day long. I didn't know if I had any more talent than anyone else directing but I knew I could work hard at it and so I did.

Ben Affleck | movies quotes

The one benefit of having done all kinds of movies as an actor is you learn the pros and cons of being tempted to do a really big movie because it costs a lot of money.

Ben Affleck | movies quotes

You're basically the sum of all the experiences you've ever had and they're sort of shaken up in you and reproduced in the things you create and that includes seeing movies.

Ben Affleck | movies quotes

Not that it entirely matters: There is a perception that all actors make their movies. A lot of people assume you're responsible. George Clooney told me actors get all of the blame and all the credit.

Ben Affleck | movies quotes

My movies are unadorned they're not particularly fancy I think they're kind of workmanlike in some ways focusing on the writing and the acting.

Ben Affleck | movies quotes

I've never held myself up particularly high when I had movies that worked and I never held myself all that low when I had failures.

Ben Affleck | movies quotes

My mum was raised Jewish my dad is very scientifically minded and my school was vaguely Christian. We sang hymns in school. I liked the hymns bit but apart from that I can take it or leave it. So I had lots of different influences when I was younger.

Ben Barnes | dad quotes

My dad is a doctor a professor of psychiatry and my mum is a psychotherapist.

Ben Barnes | dad quotes

I often talk with other actors about that time when you've just finished a job because I think you do take on the characteristics of some of the characters you play. Sometimes it can be a great thing and sometimes it's a bit haunting because you're not quite sure how to leave it on set. My dad talks about it as being 'de-personalised.'

Ben Barnes | dad quotes

I only remember the end of my dreams like waking up at a steering wheel or falling.

Ben Bernanke | success quotes

Ben Crenshaw | sad quotes

Ben Folds | alone quotes

I think I was lucky to come of age in a place and time - the American South in the 1960s and '70s - when the machine hadn't completely taken over life. The natural world was still the world and machines - TV telephone cars - were still more or less ancillary and computers were unheard of in everyday life.

Ben Fountain | computers quotes

Ben Harper | freedom quotes

It will make a weak man mighty. it will make a mighty man fall. It will fill your heart and hands or leave you with nothing at all. It's the eyes for the blind and legs for the lame. It is the love for hate and pride for shame. That's the power of the gospel.

Ben Harper | power quotes

Trouble is kids feel they have to shock their elders and each generation grows up into something harder to shock.

Ben Lindsey | teen quotes

I guess something that I've noticed from American acts who had success in touring is more of an explanation as to their music. Which is I think quite funny. I think British acts might like to leave more to the imagination - maybe a bit more obscure perhaps - a bit more shy.

Ben Lovett | imagination quotes

I don't think any other city in the world... the sun doesn't shine the same way anywhere as it does in New York. And then I guess everyone's very good at hanging out. Not in a crazy way but you're just constantly interacting and learning.

I was born left-handed but I was made to use my other hand. When I was writing 'Famished Road ' which was very long I got repetitive stress syndrome. My right wrist collapsed so I started using my left hand. The prose I wrote with my left hand came out denser so later on I had to change it.

Ben Okri | change quotes

One of the greatest gifts my father gave me - unintentionally - was witnessing the courage with which he bore adversity. We had a bit of a rollercoaster life with some really challenging financial periods. He was always unshaken completely tranquil the same ebullient laughing jovial man.

We need to understand that we are not each others' enemies in this country. And it is only the political class that derives its power by creating friction.

Benjamin Carson | wisdom quotes

Why are we talking about talking? Why negotiating about negotiating? It's very simple. If you want to get to peace put all your preconditions on the side sit down opposite a table not in a studio by the way.

Benjamin Netanyahu | peace quotes

You know I think I think the Palestinians are trying to get away without negotiating. They're trying to get a state to continue the conflict with Israel rather than to end it.

Benjamin Todd Jealous | marriage quotes

Racial profiling punishes innocent individuals for the past actions of those who look and sound like them.

It has no place in our national discourse and no place in our nation's police departments.

That's the difference between golf and many other sports. You go to some other sporting events they just leave you or give you the cold shoulder and move on.

Bernhard Langer | sports quotes

Well the first time I ran into the term religion people were asking whether you had any. You know some people had religion and some people didn't have religion.

Bernice Johnson Reagon | religion quotes

And I used to think that proof that I had religion was whether I knew how to sing all of the songs.

Bernie Sanders | health quotes

People don't trust private health insurance companies for all the right reasons.

Bernie Sanders | health quotes

If the goal of health-care reform is to provide comprehensive universal health care in a cost-effective way the only honest approach is a single-payer approach.

Bernie Sanders | health quotes

As a single-payer advocate I believe that at the end of the day if a state goes forward and passed an effective single-payer program it will demonstrate that you can provide quality health care to every man woman and child in a more cost-effective way.

Bernie Sanders | health quotes

Look if you have somebody who doesn't have health insurance who doesn't have a doctor or dentist and in order to deal with their cold or flu or dental problem they go to an emergency room - in general that visit will cost ten times more than walking into a community health center.

Bertrand Russell | courage quotes

The place of the father in the modern suburban family is a very small one particularly if he plays golf.

Bertrand Russell | dad quotes

The fundamental defect of fathers in our competitive society is that they want their children to be a credit to them.

Bertrand Russell | dad quotes

We are faced with the paradoxical fact that education has become one of the chief obstacles to intelligence and freedom of thought.

Bertrand Russell | education quotes

Bertrand Russell | funny quotes

The world is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.

Bertrand Russell | funny quotes

Bertrand Russell | happiness quotes

The secret to happiness is to face the fact that the world is horrible.

Bertrand Russell | happiness quotes

I've made an odd discovery. Every time I talk to a savant I feel quite sure that happiness is no longer a possibility. Yet when I talk with my gardener I'm convinced of the opposite.

Bertrand Russell | happiness quotes

Contempt for happiness is usually contempt for other people's happiness and is an elegant disguise for hatred of the human race.

Bertrand Russell | happiness quotes

If there were in the world today any large number of people who desired their own happiness more than they desired the unhappiness of others we could have a paradise in a few years.

Bertrand Russell | happiness quotes

If all our happiness is bound up entirely in our personal circumstances it is difficult not to demand of life more than it has to give.

Bertrand Russell | nature quotes

Patriotism is the willingness to kill and be killed for trivial reasons.

Bertrand Russell | patriotism quotes

The true spirit of delight the exaltation the sense of being more than Man which is the touchstone of the highest excellence is to be found in mathematics as surely as poetry.

Bertrand Russell | poetry quotes

Religions which condemn the pleasures of sense drive men to seek the pleasures of power. Throughout history power has been the vice of the ascetic.

Bertrand Russell | power quotes

The fundamental concept in social science is Power in the same sense in which Energy is the fundamental concept in physics.

Bertrand Russell | religion quotes

It is possible that mankind is on the threshold of a golden age but if so it will be necessary first to slay the dragon that guards the door and this dragon is religion.

Bertrand Russell | religion quotes

One should respect public opinion insofar as is necessary to avoid starvation and keep out of prison but anything that goes beyond this is voluntary submission to an unnecessary tyranny.

Bertrand Russell | respect quotes

Bertrand Russell | respect quotes

Against my will in the course of my travels the belief that everything worth knowing was known at Cambridge gradually wore off. In this respect my travels were very useful to me.

Bertrand Russell | society quotes

I believe in using words not fists. I believe in my outrage knowing people are living in boxes on the street. I believe in honesty. I believe in a good time. I believe in good food. I believe in sex.

Bertrand Russell | time quotes

A truer image of the world I think is obtained by picturing things as entering into the stream of time from an eternal world outside than from a view which regards time as the devouring tyrant of all that is.

Bertrand Russell | time quotes

In America everybody is of the opinion that he has no social superiors since all men are equal but he does not admit that he has no social inferiors for from the time of Jefferson onward the doctrine that all men are equal applies only upwards not downwards.

Bertrand Russell | women quotes

One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important.

Bertrand Russell | work quotes

A sense of duty is useful in work but offensive in personal relations. People wish to be liked not to be endured with patient resignation.

Bertrand Russell | work quotes

Work is of two kinds: first altering the position of matter at or near the earth's surface relative to other matter second telling other people to do so.

Bertrand Russell | work quotes

You may invite the entire 35th Division to your wedding if you want to. I guess it's going to be yours as well as mine. We might as well have the church full while we are at it.

Bess Truman | wedding quotes

I decided blacks should not have to experience the difficulties I had faced so I decided to open a flying school and teach other black women to fly.

Bessie Coleman | experience quotes

I decided blacks should not have to experience the difficulties I had faced so I decided to open a flying school and teach other black women to fly.

Bessie Coleman | women quotes

A discipline I have observed is an attitude of love and reverence to people.

Bessie Head | attitude quotes

Everything is just better in California - the wine the food fruits and vegetables the comforts of living. Even the instrumentalists are generous and curious. Everything is wonderful.

Beth Anderson | food quotes

My size has helped make me an amazing performer too. The cliche of the Funny Fat Friend: I absolutely was that character - I am that character... It's a complicated bag of tools I acquired and I've put them all to work onstage.

Beth Ditto | amazing quotes

A few years back when my style was 'punk grandma ' I picked up an amazing pair of sandals - orthopaedic ones with really thick soles. I've given them away to a friend now because these days my look is more '1980s substitute teacher gone wild.'

Beth Ditto | amazing quotes

I thought to be feminine was to give in to straight culture or the beauty standard but in my heart I had a flair for fashion and style. They were passions I kept secret because I didn't understand I could love clothes and hair and makeup and still like girls.

Beth Ditto | beauty quotes

Thanks to capitalism the importance placed on beauty has never been so manipulated. We are the guinea pigs force-fed ads that tell us how pathetic we are: that we will never be loved happy or valuable unless we have the body the face the hair even the personality that will apparently be ours if only we buy their products.

Beth Ditto | beauty quotes

I just like food too much and I don't want to change. I spent so much of childhood trying to change and I just got sick of it... I don't want to look like Britney Spears I just don't want to. She's hideous.

Beth Ditto | change quotes

Girls are taught to sing high and pretty like Antony not low and from the guts like Nina Simone. But we're slowly trying to change that. There are so many things we're not told growing up and it's our true feminist responsibility to take the truth to the people who need to hear it.

Beth Ditto | change quotes

For my group of friends is Lady Gaga eye-opening? No. She's a less dangerous version of what was so cool about pop culture in the '80s. Back then it was so gay and so punk in so many ways.

Beth Ditto | cool quotes

All this fashion stuff - who's cool now - is just a bigger version of the cool kids versus the nerds.

Beth Ditto | cool quotes

I think it's really cool that there are people like Adele on the cover of 'Vogue' and 'Rolling Stone ' and like I think it's really important that people are talking about your body because if they don't then you'll never be able to break that barrier.

Beth Ditto | cool quotes

My dad liked to boil a squirrel head and suck the brains out the nose. Smaller than a chicken bigger than a rat.

Beth Ditto | dad quotes

My mother told me Homer Ditto was not my father. Nope. Mom had had a fling with some other guy who was my dad. Some dude who didn't stick around too long who Mom was happy to get rid of. She chose Homer and Homer chose me so he lent me his name even though I didn't have his blood.

Beth Ditto | dad quotes

Do I ever think Gossip will be really massive in America? No I don't think it'll happen - and that's fine. It's kind of nice because I get to experience everything at once. I get to come home and it not be weird like in Paris or something. It is nice to be completely anonymous.

Beth Ditto | experience quotes

When you see a fantastic colour or cut in a magazine perched up on some famous so-and-so's head it's tempting to ask your stylist for the same but do not be fooled. The hair in those fancy photos can be very high maintenance.

Beth Ditto | famous quotes

I don't feel famous and I didn't want my autobiography to be like a Paris Hilton story.

Beth Ditto | famous quotes

You live in this shadow that you're going to burn in Hell until you're saved. And I still worry about it a little. I don't believe in Heaven but I do still fear Hell.

Beth Ditto | fear quotes

As with most phobias the fear of flying does make some sense but if ever there was a fear worth quashing then this is it. After all life is short and there's a great big world to explore out there.

Beth Ditto | fear quotes

I just like food too much and I don't want to change. I spent so much of childhood trying to change and I just got sick of it... I don't want to look like Britney Spears I just don't want to. She's hideous.

Beth Ditto | food quotes

Olympia was a town crawling with music. I was new to the whole punk scene. The culture shock continued Olympia had bagels! We didn't have bagels in Arkansas. You could order vegetarian food all over town! It was so crazy to me - a place with so many vegetarians the restaurants made special dishes for them?

Beth Ditto | food quotes

Here is my prescription to heal all wounds. Watch the film 'Funny Girl' at least five times eat at least 45 chocolate bars and hang out with all those friends you blew off to hang out with your ex. I truly believe that through a combination of Nutella old pals and Barbra Streisand we can achieve happiness and very probably world peace.

Beth Ditto | funny quotes

Beth Ditto | happiness quotes

When I am made fun of in the press I just remember those days when I'd come home to find that the water had been turned off because my mother couldn't afford the bill. Suddenly everything feels easier.

Beth Ditto | home quotes

Do I ever think Gossip will be really massive in America? No I don't think it'll happen - and that's fine. It's kind of nice because I get to experience everything at once. I get to come home and it not be weird like in Paris or something. It is nice to be completely anonymous.

Beth Ditto | home quotes

I'm constantly thinking about what I'll do next. I never count on music being a career of longevity. I mean longevity is key and I hope that it lasts but you just don't know because it's not in your hands you don't make the decision.

Beth Ditto | hope quotes

I have no control over what people think of me but I have 100% control of what I think of myself and that is so important. And not just about your body but so many ways of confidence. You're constantly learning how to be confident aren't you?

Beth Ditto | learning quotes

I was born to be married. I just feel comfortable there. I love the idea of being partnered for ever. I love my girlfriend we've been best friends since I was 18. There's not a thing we haven't been through except for marriage... We've had talks about what we would name our kids since we were in our 20s.

Beth Ditto | marriage quotes

Aretha Franklin was a teenage mom a musician who came from an incredibly Christian background but there was a lot of love which is really inspiring in a feminist way.

Beth Ditto | mom quotes

When I moved out of my mom's house at 18 I was almost as sad to leave her sewing machine behind as anything else.

Beth Ditto | mom quotes

I was given baby doll toys myself and they proved a stark reminder that my life was expected to revolve around childbearing - just as my mom's had before me and her mom's had before her.

Beth Ditto | mom quotes

We all seek approval and our mother's seal is usually the most important. The nitty gritty is that we have to accept ourselves even if it is just to be ready for the next cut-down. Mom's blessing or not.

Beth Ditto | mom quotes

I was brought up by a single mom in a poor town in Arkansas and while some aspects of small-town life were really positive - like the fact that everyone there is really sweet and hospitable - there is also this close-minded mentality and that naturally made me want to rebel.

Beth Ditto | mom quotes

My mother told me Homer Ditto was not my father. Nope. Mom had had a fling with some other guy who was my dad. Some dude who didn't stick around too long who Mom was happy to get rid of. She chose Homer and Homer chose me so he lent me his name even though I didn't have his blood.

Beth Ditto | mom quotes

Get a Job' is about all the rich kids we knew when we were younger kids who never had jobs but always had money for partying or getting their hair done.

Beth Ditto | money quotes

I've had people ask me in interviews what it's like to have money but that's not how it is. I have a middle-class life. I have a room in London but not a house nor a BMW.

Beth Ditto | money quotes

For me the greatest revenge of all is having a happy adulthood waking up in my gorgeous turquoise bedroom in the morning beside a person who really inspires me. That's the best revenge a girl-loving girl from the Bible belt could possibly have. And importantly it's healthy.

Beth Ditto | morning quotes

Starting out really punk came from not knowing any better and listening to music like that not knowing how to play music - well still not knowing how to play music.

Beth Ditto | music quotes

I love sad songs. They say so much. I love country music but even the happy songs sound really sad.

Beth Ditto | music quotes

I'm constantly thinking about what I'll do next. I never count on music being a career of longevity. I mean longevity is key and I hope that it lasts but you just don't know because it's not in your hands you don't make the decision.

Beth Ditto | music quotes

It's really hard for me to sometimes put myself out there like 'Hey how do you feel about making music together?' because maybe I'm afraid of rejection or I don't want to put anybody out. It's the Southerner in me like 'I don't mean to bother you but do you mind making a song?'

Beth Ditto | music quotes

I've never had a very quiet voice. I tried in choir to make it smaller and it just didn't work out. And I listened to a lot of soul music when I was growing up on my own accord. But I was mostly into Mama Cass and Gladys Knight and they all had big voices too just different than mine.

Beth Ditto | music quotes

Olympia was a town crawling with music. I was new to the whole punk scene. The culture shock continued Olympia had bagels! We didn't have bagels in Arkansas. You could order vegetarian food all over town! It was so crazy to me - a place with so many vegetarians the restaurants made special dishes for them?

Beth Ditto | music quotes

Here is my prescription to heal all wounds. Watch the film 'Funny Girl' at least five times eat at least 45 chocolate bars and hang out with all those friends you blew off to hang out with your ex. I truly believe that through a combination of Nutella old pals and Barbra Streisand we can achieve happiness and very probably world peace.

Beth Ditto | peace quotes

I was brought up by a single mom in a poor town in Arkansas and while some aspects of small-town life were really positive - like the fact that everyone there is really sweet and hospitable - there is also this close-minded mentality and that naturally made me want to rebel.

Beth Ditto | positive quotes

Beth Ditto | sad quotes

A few years back when my style was 'punk grandma ' I picked up an amazing pair of sandals - orthopaedic ones with really thick soles. I've given them away to a friend now because these days my look is more '1980s substitute teacher gone wild.'

Beth Ditto | teacher quotes

When I was a teenager I would lock myself in the bathroom for hours bouffanting my hair like Patty Duke and trying to recreate Barbra Streisand's flawless eyeliner only to comb it all out and wash it all off before stepping out into the world a butchish bisexual teen.

Beth Ditto | teen quotes

As a kid I was always mad - just noticing the women at Thanksgiving running around the kitchen while the men were watching football. For one I don't want to cook and for two I hate football. I was stuck in the middle.

Beth Ditto | thanksgiving quotes

Reclaiming the word 'fat' was the most empowering step in my progress. I stopped using it for insult or degradation and instead replaced it with truth because the truth is that I am fat and that's ok. So now when someone calls me fat I agree whereas before I would get embarrassed and emotional.

Beth Ditto | truth quotes

Girls are taught to sing high and pretty like Antony not low and from the guts like Nina Simone. But we're slowly trying to change that. There are so many things we're not told growing up and it's our true feminist responsibility to take the truth to the people who need to hear it.

Beth Ditto | truth quotes

Beth Ditto | women quotes

I feel sorry... for people who've had skinny privilege and then have it taken away from them. I have had a lifetime to adjust to seeing how people treat women who aren't their idea of beautiful and therefore aren't their idea of useful and I had to find ways to become useful to myself.

Beth Ditto | women quotes

Beth Henley | food quotes

Some really good things kind of swing both ways and I like to see people that can swing really really really sad and horrible and terrible and really really really beautiful and funny.

I used to design for my body which was flat-chested with big hips. That's why my clothes were tight on top with full skirts.

Betsey Johnson | design quotes

I hate to say it but the truth is that the upscale line is where I get respect as a designer. The higher the price range the higher the respect level from the industry even though it's much easier to make a great $500 dress than a great $100 dress.
