Victoria Justice | teen quotes

Being a teen can be tough. Just try to surround yourself with really good friends that really have your back and also be a really good friend to those who really care about you. If you're not sure about certain things talk to your friends that you trust and your family.

Victoria Justice | trust quotes

I like to find the beauty in the ugly. When I'm in a thrift store I gravitate toward pieces I know I'll wear a ton and insane pieces that I'm sure most people would consider gross. But I find them inspiring. Our van is currently stocked with some of my random findings from this tour. Maybe I'll call my aesthetic 'van fashion.'

Victoria Legrand | beauty quotes

You show your vulnerability through relationships and those feelings are your soft spot. You need to have a soft spot.

Victoria Pratt | dating quotes

I approach my character with the question: What would an animal think? How would an animal respond? A lot of times it's quick action and no fear and sometimes it's irrational fear. You don't always know.

Victoria Principal | health quotes

Oprah is so bright and her intelligence is so piercing that I don't think anyone who spends a few minutes with her isn't struck by that.

Victoria Principal | intelligence quotes

Success doesn't mean that you are healthy success doesn't mean that you're happy success doesn't mean that you're rested. Success really doesn't mean that you look good or feel good or are good.

Most fathers don't see the war within the daughter her struggles with conflicting images of the idealized and flawed father her temptation both to retreat to Daddy's lap and protection and to push out of his embrace to that of beau and the world beyond home.

Victoria Secunda | home quotes

Vidal Sassoon | education quotes

I believe in the equality of man and I believe that religious duties consist in doing justice loving mercy and endeavoring to make our fellow-creatures happy.

Vidal Sassoon | equality quotes

I got a telegraph from my mother who said that my step-father had had a heart attack come home and earn a living. So I went back to England and the only thing I knew to earn any cash was through hairdressing.

Vidal Sassoon | home quotes

I came home after a year and although my profession was only hairdressing I knew I could change it.

Vidal Sassoon | intelligence quotes

Realizing our society as it is without theology dogmatically telling us how we should react to it and being humane toward that society that is all that we're sure of.

Vidal Sassoon | society quotes

I was all about my thoughts my work my inspiration. I was always in hair.

Vidal Sassoon | work quotes

Hairdressers are a wonderful breed. You work one-on-one with another human being and the object is to make them feel so much better and to look at themselves with a twinkle in their eye.

Vidal Sassoon | work quotes

Like most people I can be lazy so it's nice to have a goal or deadline or reason to work out. I feel better when I get to exercise or when I'm outdoors. I like to hike swim and run and I love to play soccer.

For the meaning of life differs from man to man from day to day and from hour to hour. What matters therefore is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person's life at a given moment.

Ville Valo | best quotes

Falling in love is the best way to kill your heart because then it's not yours anymore. It's laid in a coffin waiting to be cremated.

Ville Valo | best quotes

It's the same with visual arts you have some really cool wonderful striking images that make you think and then again you have wonderful striking images that just take you away from the existing world for a second. And I like the latter a bit more.

Ville Valo | cool quotes

I haven't been baptised. My dad's not in the church and is not a religious person. My mum is more spiritual - she does Thai-chi and goes to Stonehenge and things like that. I'm proud to be pagan. Finland is not really a religious country. I'm still looking for my god.

Ville Valo | dad quotes

I didn't have any role models really. My best friend was a dog. My mum and dad saved a dog from the gutter and that dog was my brother before Jesse was born. Sami was his name and he was my role model.

Ville Valo | dad quotes

In almost every interview someone asks what does HIM stand for. I can't even remember our latest lie about that. When Hanson was hot we said it means Hanson Is Murder. The name doesn't have a particular history. His Infernal Majesty was a totally different band. I think HIM derives from some death metal joke.

I like to listen to mellow stuff on the road like Travis as we are constantly surrounded by rock music on tour and so its nice listening to mellow stuff. Obviously back at home I listen to a lot more rock music.

Ville Valo | home quotes

Music for me is an emotional thing and it really does make me happy. It's not a tool for me to get fame or see my face in the papers or anything like that. It's about the fact that I really do enjoy it.

It's insecurity that is always chasing you and standing in the way of your dreams.

Vin Diesel | dreams quotes

If you're the type of person who has to fulfill your dreams you've gotta be resourceful to make sure you can do it. I came out to California when I was 21 thinking my New York credentials would take me all the way. I came back home a year later all dejected and a failure.

Vin Diesel | dreams quotes

When you go to the movies with your whole family it's a different experience. For some reason it's something that you're all doing together and you take away something special in that.

My gut feeling about sequels is that they should be premeditated: You should try to write a trilogy first or at least sketch out a trilogy if you have any faith in your film.

When you go to the movies with your whole family it's a different experience. For some reason it's something that you're all doing together and you take away something special in that.

Vin Diesel | family quotes

I was the oldest of the children in my family. I had to do a lot of diaper-changing and lunch-making. I was taking my little sister to ballet picking up my brother sort of being a super-nanny.

Vin Diesel | family quotes

You know when something feels so good but you're afraid to feel good about it? So you kinda hold back? Everyone says Congratulations you must be so happy. And you say something stupid like I'm just doing what little I can with what little I have.

You make movies for the people. If critics happen to like them too well that's a home run.

The thing that stood out above and beyond all the experiences was this relationship with the nine-month-old baby. On weekends I'd be thinking about going back to set on Monday just to see the baby.

Vin Diesel | relationship quotes

On banks I make no apology for attacking spivs and gamblers who did more harm to the British economy than Bob Crow could achieve in his wildest Trotskyite fantasies while paying themselves outrageous bonuses underwritten by the taxpayer. There is much public anger about banks and it is well deserved.

Vince Cable | anger quotes

Now the main areas of higher education that still enjoy considerable financial support from government are subjects like engineering and science and the research ringfence which is the basic minimum to protect Britain's scientific competitiveness.

Vince Cable | education quotes

For wide swaths of training and education there are valuable spillovers which mean that the private sector needs support from the government. That is why I have been so determined to protect and grow apprenticeships and put higher education on a sustainable footing.

Vince Cable | education quotes

I am going to confront the old-fashioned negative thinking which says that all government needs to do to generate growth is cut worker and environmental protections cut taxes on the rich and stroke 'fat cats' until they purr with pleasure. I'm completely repudiating the idea that government has to get out of the way.

Vince Cable | environmental quotes

My time at Shell was a most valuable experience because it taught me to look at the world in a long-term way. Shell takes a 20-year view on events and plans for different scenarios. It makes you see the world as a kind of large matrix.

Vince Cable | experience quotes

I fear that the rising personal bankruptcies and repossessions are the first signs of bigger problems to come and personal debt - Gordon Brown's legacy to millions of Britain's families - will hang like a millstone around the neck of the British people for years to come.

Vince Cable | fear quotes

Small- and medium-sized businesses need access to a diverse range of finance options including non-bank lending. These new forms of finance are still small in scale today but they should over time bring additional choice and greater competition to the lending market.

Vince Cable | finance quotes

My late wife Olympia was Goan and I've been to India many times. I love the food there. We used to do our shopping in Southall where you can find cheap but wonderful fruit like mangoes vegetables and spices. I didn't do much of the cooking as Olympia did a lot - I was the under-chef and did some of the chopping.

Vince Cable | food quotes

The food in the House of Commons is fairly good. The cafe in Portcullis House is really very high quality and you also have a choice of eating in the more traditional restaurants the Churchill Room or the Members' Dining Room. I don't often eat in them though as I'm usually on the run.

Vince Cable | food quotes

When my job was attempting to predict future economic developments for the Shell oil company I was frequently reminded of an Arabic saying: 'Those who claim to foresee the future are lying even if by chance they are later proved right.'

Vince Cable | future quotes

I clearly believe a lot more than some of my coalition colleagues - Tories - in redistribution and using the tax system for that purpose. I also believe in the government having an active role in the economy which is having an industrial strategy. I'm not a believer in laissez-faire.

Vince Cable | government quotes

You can't win with some people. If you're not in government you're criticised for being not serious. If you are in government you're criticised for wanting power. That's the Labour party's line of attack and it's a bit ridiculous.

Vince Cable | government quotes

For wide swaths of training and education there are valuable spillovers which mean that the private sector needs support from the government. That is why I have been so determined to protect and grow apprenticeships and put higher education on a sustainable footing.

Vince Cable | government quotes

And humility in politics means accepting that one party doesn't have all the answers recognising that working in partnership is progress not treachery.

Vince Cable | politics quotes

My college Fitzwilliam was pretty good but unfashionable and I lived in digs so I was not part of the cloistered 'old college' environment which frankly was a bit intimidating. But I worked hard and settled in by exploring politics and girls.

Vince Cable | politics quotes

I think what is happening is I think first of all there is confidence in the U.K. economy. We're in a German rather than a Greek position in international financial markets which is very positive and keeps our debt service costs down and we're also beginning to see real evidence of rebalancing.

Vince Cable | positive quotes

Now the main areas of higher education that still enjoy considerable financial support from government are subjects like engineering and science and the research ringfence which is the basic minimum to protect Britain's scientific competitiveness.

Success is always temporary. When all is said and one the only thing you'll have left is your character.

Vince Gill | success quotes

The price of success is hard work dedication to the job at hand and the determination that whether we win or lose we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.

Vince Lombardi | best quotes

It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner.

Vince Neil | music quotes

I appreciate the 'Surreal Life.' I had a really positive experience on that show and with those people. I found some love in my heart for religion again and had the support of a new family of friends. I wouldn't have had the pleasure of meeting those people if we were not all placed in that fishbowl.

I have learned that acting is not about beauty.

Vincent Cassel | beauty quotes

Working with David Cronenberg or Darren Aronofsky or even Steven Soderbergh isn't really like a typical Hollywood movie. These are true artists and have a certain amount of freedom when they work and they're more like independent filmmakers making their way through big studios.

Vincent Cassel | freedom quotes

When you see violence in movies in general it's very quick and painless which isn't what it's like.

Vincent Cassel | movies quotes

I did direct two short movies. I learned many things and one of the things I learned was that I am not a director. It has to be visceral and it's not for me. I feel much more comfortable acting.

Vincent Cassel | movies quotes

Cinema is entertainment and people go to the movies because they want to feel good and forget about everything.

Cronenberg's a lot of fun and that a lot of people don't know watching his movies. He doesn't take himself seriously. He's still reinventing himself.

Acting is not a mystery. There's nothing that I know that other actors don't know. We all act we're all actors we all know the same thing. The only thing that separates us is experience.

Vincent D'Onofrio | experience quotes

When I was younger I used to pick things just to face the fear.

Quite honestly I never had a desire to be an actor. I tell people I did not choose acting acting chose me. I never grew up wanting to be an actor. I wanted to play football.

Vinny Guadagnino | mom quotes

I got a family house for everybody to live in - my mom my sisters and I. And I made sure that it has a separate apartment downstairs for myself. Family is more important than anything.

Vinny Guadagnino | mom quotes

My political science degree is always on the back-burner. I took my LSAT so even if I want to take the LSAT again I know what I'm getting into. I'll keep it on the back-burner. Who knows maybe with my popularity I can have a career in politics with a law degree. I think it'll work out either way.
