Fiona Apple | age quotes

I got a lot of problems but I'm really good at intuiting what I need to do to be happy with whatever I create. I know when to stop myself I know when to start I know when to leave something alone. I guess I just kind of indulge that completely and so I just take my time.

Everywhere I go I'm asked if I think the universities stifle writers. My opinion is that they don't stifle enough of them. There's many a best seller that could have been prevented by a good teacher.

Flannery O'Connor | best quotes

When a book leaves your hands it belongs to God. He may use it to save a few souls or to try a few others but I think that for the writer to worry is to take over God's business.

Florence King | marriage quotes

Now the only thing I miss about sex is the cigarette afterward. Next to the first one in the morning it's the best one of all. It tasted so good that even if I had been frigid I would have pretended otherwise just to be able to smoke it.

Florence King | morning quotes

The world is put back by the death of every one who has to sacrifice the development of his or her peculiar gifts to conventionality.

Florence Scovel Shinn | communication quotes

Every great work every big accomplishment has been brought into manifestation through holding to the vision and often just before the big achievement comes apparent failure and discouragement.

Florence Scovel Shinn | failure quotes

You will be a failure until you impress the subconscious with the conviction you are a success. This is done by making an affirmation which 'clicks.'

Florence Welch | age quotes

I've got some incredible fans actually - so loyal and they make me birthday cards and Christmas cards. I got this package of poems and artwork based around the songs. They've got this thing called 'Floetry' where they all have to put in artwork. They've set up their own competitions and stuff which is kind of amazing.

Florence Welch | amazing quotes

I saw 'The Artist.' It's really beautiful and it's all done to the letter with all the silent film techniques. The costumes were amazing and the dog is so good.

Florence Welch | amazing quotes

My siblings and I were friends with the boys who would become our stepbrothers - we grew up on the same street. I feel very special to have these amazing people in my life and if we hadn't all moved into this big house together I think I would have missed out on that because we would have drifted apart.

Florence Welch | death quotes

I've always been a bit of a decorator. I think if I wasn't a singer I'd probably be in stage setting or interior design or something. I like clutter and I'm quite visually greedy. I can't have things to be plain I have to have things looking interesting... maybe I'm just a frustrated interior designer stuck in a singing career.

Florence Welch | design quotes

Going to parties usually makes me feel depressed just because I have such social fear after meeting people.

Florence Welch | fear quotes

I'm completely in love with the world but also terrified of it. It creates some overwhelming feelings. Wanting to battle out that joy and fear is part of my music.

Florence Welch | fear quotes

I'd gone from being this art student messing about with music to this girl with a record deal magazine front covers and all this hype. In many ways it was everything I ever wanted but when it happened all I felt was total paralysing fear.

Florence Welch | fear quotes

It would be too frightening for me to consider myself a role model. But I like the idea of not being afraid of letting your imagination rule you to feel the freedom of expression to let creativity be your overwhelming drive rather than other things.

Florence Welch | freedom quotes

The aesthetic came along the way I think - just through experimenting and going on tour and trying stuff out on stage having fun with it and not taking it too seriously. If I had a ballgown at home I'd wear it onstage. If I found something in a charity shop I'd wear it. That's where it grew from - just wanting to play dress-up.

Florence Welch | home quotes

I'm a light sleeper. I've never been one of those people who can put their head down and suddenly everything disappears. Nighttime is the time I get most scared anxious or worried. In those darker moments before waking or sleeping is when I feel most I don't know I can turn on myself and my imagination can take me dark places.

Florence Welch | imagination quotes

It would be too frightening for me to consider myself a role model. But I like the idea of not being afraid of letting your imagination rule you to feel the freedom of expression to let creativity be your overwhelming drive rather than other things.

Florence Welch | imagination quotes

I've got quite a vivid imagination and I'm easily overwhelmed by sensations and things that are beautiful or scary. I don't think I've ever seen a ghost - I think I'm probably haunted by my own ghosts than real ones.

Florence Welch | imagination quotes

There's such an extreme feeling to be in love especially in quite an emotionally destructive relationship where you're both kind of really bad for each other but you love each other so much. Those extreme emotions I think can only be described with extreme imagery.

Florence Welch | relationship quotes

I've always been attracted to romantic secondhand clothes. But my style developed as I started going to these strange raves where everybody had these very definitive costumes.

Florenz Ziegfeld | humor quotes

Age puzzles me. I thought it was a quiet time. My seventies were interesting and fairly serene but my eighties are passionate. I grow more intense as I age.

Florida Scott-Maxwell | age quotes

The crucial task of old age is balance: keeping just well enough just brave enough just gay and interested and starkly honest enough to remain a sentient human being.

Florida Scott-Maxwell | age quotes

So sometimes the facts are good and sometimes the facts are bad the important thing from the point of view of a principle as broad and important as freedom of speech is that the courts articulate and set forth in a very protective way what those principles are.

Floyd Abrams | freedom quotes

It's not like learning how to hit a curve ball in baseball.

My kids are the future of the Mayweather family and of the Mayweather brand. I feel our family is stronger if we stay together.

Floyd Mayweather Jr | family quotes

Most people should be talking about how Floyd Mayweather is a great undefeated future Hall of Famer that's his own promoter and that works extremely hard to get to where he's at.

Floyd Mayweather Jr | positive quotes

Don't ever know who you may meet or just because a person may not be dressed up all fancy don't mean they're not an important person. You just don't ever know who you're gonna meet in life. So that's why I look at everybody as equal. Can't just judge. I treat everybody with respect. Every man.

I feel like everybody is against Floyd Mayweather. I don't get any respect.

Food is an important part of a balanced diet.

My desire to curtail undue freedom of speech extends only to such public areas as restaurants airports streets hotel lobbies parks and department stores. Verbal exchanges between consenting adults in private are as of little interest to me as they probably are to them.

Romantic love is mental illness. But it's a pleasurable one. It's a drug. It distorts reality and that's the point of it. It would be impossible to fall in love with someone that you really saw.

Being a woman is of special interest only to aspiring male transsexuals. To actual women it is simply a good excuse not to play football.

Fran Lebowitz | women quotes

The pro athlete is a sad tale. He signs a big contract and thinks he's set for life. I didn't think I was set for life and I don't now. As athletes we are important celebrities in demand and rich. Then we are out of the game and we are not important not celebrities not in demand and not rich.

I went to Sunday School and liked the stories about Christ and the Christmas star. They were beautiful. They made you warm and happy to think about. But I didn't believe them.

Frances Farmer | christmas quotes

I used to lie between cool clean sheets at night after I'd had a bath after I had washed my hair and scrubbed my knuckles and finger-nails and teeth. Then I could lie quite still in the dark with my face to the window with the trees in it and talk to God.

The Sunday School teacher talked too much in the way our grade school teacher used to when she told us about George Washington. Pleasant pretty stories but not true.

Frances O'Grady | education quotes

When I look at my daughter who's 24 she is much more confident than I ever was and her expectations are higher. But I worry that there is a backlash brewing against progress on equality.

Frances O'Grady | equality quotes

It is not natural or inevitable that half the world goes hungry that the freedom of markets trumps protection of the planet or that citizens' rights come second to those of corporations.

Frances O'Grady | freedom quotes

The TUC's new slogan 'a future that works' sets a profound challenge. Austerity and rapid deficit reduction is failing in its own terms but even at its best it is short-sighted muddle-through politics with no vision of a new economic model.

As long as the number one worry for people keeping them up at nights is whether they're going to have a job in the morning then they are less likely to resist unfair changes or unfair treatment or cuts in real pay at work.

Frances O'Grady | morning quotes

My impression is that most women public service workers have a long fuse. Precisely because they care so deeply about services more than anyone they still want to find a sensible and fair negotiated agreement. But their patience has run out.

Frances O'Grady | patience quotes

The TUC's new slogan 'a future that works' sets a profound challenge. Austerity and rapid deficit reduction is failing in its own terms but even at its best it is short-sighted muddle-through politics with no vision of a new economic model.

Frances O'Grady | politics quotes

I came from a family where joining a union was the expected thing to do. I've always believed that the relationship between an employer and an individual worker is fundamentally unequal.

Frances Wright | truth quotes

I can feel the 60S looming. In my profession I've just moved along with my age. By thinking in decades rather than whether someone's 42 or 47 you can give yourself a whole 10 years to turn yourself around in.

Francesca Annis | age quotes

Francesco Guicciardini | friendship quotes

When I first thought of the idea for 'Sweet Valley High ' I loved the idea of high school as microcosm of the real world. And what I really liked was how it moved things on from 'Sleeping Beauty'-esque romance novels where the girl had to wait for the hero. This would be girl-driven very different I decided - and indeed it is.

Francine Pascal | beauty quotes

I get some of my ideas from watching my three daughters but most of them come from my own memories of growing up.

I've done reasonably well over the last 10 years because I took the strategy of language and politics and applied it to the corporate world which has never been done before.

It was said Daredevil grew up in Hell's Kitchen an amazing name for a neighbourhood. But that opened a Pandora's box of all the crime stuff I wanted to do. I borrowed liberally from Will Eisner's 'The Spirit' and turned 'Daredevil' into a crime comic.

I'm a comic book artist. So I think to myself what do I like to draw? I like to draw hot chicks fast cars and cool guys in trench coats. So that's what I write about.

Frank Miller | cool quotes

I thought Daredevil was kind of cool because he couldn't do anything. I mean he's blind. It wasn't that he could fly. His major power was an impediment. So I was intrigued. When I took over he was kind of like Spider-Man-lite but I was able to project a lot of my Catholic imagery onto it. And I'd always wanted to do a crime comic.

Frank Miller | cool quotes

I'm a spoilt brat. I thought I was just going to walk in and make movies. But I'd been my own boss for so long that all of a sudden to be facing a roomful of people who were niggling over every little scene... I just thought I'd go back and draw my comics and have a happy life.

Someday we'll learn the whole story of why George W. Bush brushed off that intelligence briefing of Aug. 6 2001 'Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.' But surely a big distraction was the major speech he was readying for delivery on Aug. 9 his first prime-time address to the nation.

Our work on light bulbs wasn't an arbitrary mandate. We didn't just pick a standard out of the air or look for a catchy sounding standard like 25 by 2025 not based in science or feasibility.

I know the exploding cost of health care is at the root of our long-term fiscal challenges.

Fred Upton | health quotes

Fred Upton | health quotes

The national debate on health care once centered on improving access to quality care yet the effect of Obamacare will be the exact opposite resulting in the shameful degradation of care for the neediest individuals.

Fred Upton | health quotes

Obamacare is a seriously flawed law that makes health care coverage less affordable costs taxpayers more than advertised and fails to deliver on most of its other grand promises.

Fred Upton | health quotes

Giving governors more leeway in administering health care could represent a small positive development in the ongoing saga of Obamacare. Unfortunately instead of choosing flexibility President Obama and his left-leaning advisers always default to rigid 'Washington knows best' answers.

Computer games tend to be boys' games warlike games with more violence. We have not spent enough time thinking through how to encourage more girls to be involved in computing before coming to college so they can see a possible career in information technology.

Freeman A Hrabowski III | technology quotes

We have no reason to think that climate change is harmful if you look at the world as a whole. Most places in fact are better off being warmer than being colder. And historically the really bad times for the environment and for people have been the cold periods rather than the warm periods.

Freeman Dyson | science quotes

Unfortunately things are different in climate science because the arguments have become heavily politicised. To say that the dogmas are wrong has become politically incorrect.

A claim for equality of material position can be met only by a government with totalitarian powers.

Friedrich August von Hayek | equality quotes

Even the striving for equality by means of a directed economy can result only in an officially enforced inequality - an authoritarian determination of the status of each individual in the new hierarchical order.

Friedrich August von Hayek | equality quotes

Perhaps the fact that we have seen millions voting themselves into complete dependence on a tyrant has made our generation understand that to choose one's government is not necessarily to secure freedom.

Friedrich August von Hayek | freedom quotes

Freedom granted only when it is known beforehand that its effects will be beneficial is not freedom.

We must face the fact that the preservation of individual freedom is incompatible with a full satisfaction of our views of distributive justice.

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.

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 | power quotes

This means that to entrust to science - or to deliberate control according to scientific principles - more than scientific method can achieve may have deplorable effects.

Friedrich August von Hayek | science quotes

It seems to me that socialists today can preserve their position in academic economics merely by the pretense that the differences are entirely moral questions about which science cannot decide.

Friedrich August von Hayek | science quotes

If we wish to preserve a free society it is essential that we recognize that the desirability of a particular object is not sufficient justification for the use of coercion.

Friedrich August von Hayek | society quotes

It is rather a problem of how to secure the best use of resources known to any of the members of society for ends whose relative importance only those individuals know.

Friedrich August von Hayek | society quotes

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.

All history has been a history of class struggles between dominated classes at various stages of social development.

It is bad policy to regulate everything... where things may better regulate themselves and can be better promoted by private exertions but it is no less bad policy to let those things alone which can only be promoted by interfering social power.

Friedrich Nietzsche | art quotes

For art to exist for any sort of aesthetic activity to exist a certain physiological precondition is indispensable: intoxication.
