When we talk of freedom and opportunity for all nations the mocking paradoxes in our own society become so clear they can no longer be ignored.

Wendell Willkie | freedom quotes

Freedom is an indivisible word. If we want to enjoy it and fight for it we must be prepared to extend it to everyone whether they are rich or poor whether they agree with us or not no matter what their race or the color of their skin.

I think there have always been funny women from Carol Burnett to Joan Rivers. When the audience sees a woman they innately know she's worked twice as hard to get there she's had to prove that she can be the leader first and then be funny on top of it. She has to emit a confidence that she's in control.

Wendy Liebman | funny quotes

Wentworth Miller | home quotes

I'm kind of a dork. I don't have much game. I'm not particularly comfortable in bars or clubs. I much prefer being home playing Scrabble having dinner with a couple friends going to see a movie or losing a whole weekend to Season 14 of Law and Order or The Simpsons.

Wesley Morris | design quotes

There comes a point in your moviegoing life where you look at the screen and then you look at the world and you ask 'What is going on?' You want the movies to show you the chaos and mess and risk and failure that are normal for a lot of us. Generally the movies hide all of that.

Wesley Morris | failure quotes

In movies there are some things the French do that Americans are increasingly incapable of doing. One is honoring the complexities of youth. It's a quiet difficult undertaking requiring subtlety in a filmmaker and perception and patience from us.

Sidney Poitier became a star in part by helping black and white Americans negotiate their new relationship in the post-Civil Rights era.

Wesley Morris | relationship quotes

Standing beneath the white light of an Apple store is like standing on a Stanley Kubrick movie set. His '2001: A Space Odyssey' predicted Jobs and a future where technology was our friend. Kubrick of course didn't like what he saw. And occasionally I have my doubts.

Wesley Snipes | funny quotes

I like science fiction and physics things like that. Planets being sucked into black holes and the various vortexes that create possibility and what happens on the other side of the black hole. To me it's the microcosmic study of the macrocosmic universe in man and that's why I'm attracted to it.

Wesley Snipes | science quotes

I've come to the conclusion that beautiful women in the West aren't comfortable finding strength in their femininity. They want to do masculine-oriented things to establish their femininity. It's a contradiction.

I understood the importance in principle of public key cryptography but it's all moved much faster than I expected. I did not expect it to be a mainstay of advanced communications technology.

Whitfield Diffie | technology quotes

Every Christmas now for years I have found myself wondering about the point of the celebration. As the holiday has become more ecumenical and secular it has lost much of the magic that I remember so fondly from childhood.

Whitley Strieber | christmas quotes

The upheavals of adolescence silenced 'A Christmas Carol' for a few years. I became a firebrand atheist. Christmas - humbug! Too commercial! Then I became an agnostic. Christmas was a pro-forma affair basically a chore. Buy mother a book dad a new tie my brother and sister small gifts. Pretend thanks for the fountain pens and shirts I received.

Whitley Strieber | christmas quotes

I put the copy of 'A Christmas Carol' that my grandfather had first read to me 60 years ago on my desk and I began to write. The result for better or for worse is the 'Christmas Spirits.' I plan to read it to my grandson.

Whitley Strieber | christmas quotes

I think that we're in a really amazing time where there are really a lot of really fantastic female actresses and comedians. I imagine there's just a lot of opportunity for women to have powerful roles. Or it's just that there's more women writing TV. Women tend to maybe write strong women.

Whitney Cummings | amazing quotes

There was a time in L.A. when I drove to 7-Eleven to go grocery shopping and I locked my keys in my car which wasn't insured.

Whitney Cummings | car quotes

I'm the one who's dating the craft-service guy instead of the producer. Plus if a producer is going to date a hot young thing I'm probably not the first person on their list - the weird quirky funny girl.

Whitney Cummings | dating quotes

I feel like in a lot of shows where the woman is in charge the woman is this ball buster and the guy is sort of weak and spineless. And that's never been my experience in a relationship. I think it's much more interesting that the guy is the boss. And there are stakes.

Whitney Cummings | relationship quotes

I wanted to be a teacher. I love children so I wanted to deal with children. Then I wanted to be a veterinarian. But by the age of ten or eleven when I opened my mouth and said 'Oh God what's this?' I kind of knew teaching and being a veterinarian were gonna have to wait.

A witness in the sense that I am using the word is a man whose life and faith are so completely one that when the challenge comes to step out and testify for his faith he does so disregarding all risks accepting all consequences.

Whittaker Chambers | faith quotes

At issue in the Hiss Case was the question whether this sick society which we call Western civilization could in its extremity still cast up a man whose faith in it was so great that he would voluntarily abandon those things which men hold good including life to defend it.

At issue was the question whether this man's faith could prevail against a man whose equal faith it was that this society is sick beyond saving and that mercy itself pleads for its swift extinction and replacement by another.

Whoopi Goldberg | power quotes

It's being willing to walk away that gives you strength and power - if you're willing to accept the consequences of doing what you want to do.

Whoopi Goldberg | strength quotes

I think the idea that you know who your inner self is on a daily basis because... you know. What's good for you 25 years ago may not be good for you now. So to keep in touch with that I think that's the first ingredient for success. Because if you're a successful human being everything else is gravy I think.

The first novel I wrote was a monster - clocking in at 180 000 words - but it died a death a death it deserved. It was called 'The Gods First Make Mad.' It was a good title but it was the only good thing about the book. I didn't let that put me off.

Wilbur Smith | death quotes

I have been blessed in many ways and one of those is to have been born in Africa for me a great treasure house of stories. I have been researching it since my infancy reading about it talking to men and women who have spent their lives in this land living it as I have and loving it as I do. I write almost entirely from my own experience.

Wilbur Smith | experience quotes

I wanted to be a great white hunter a prospector for gold or a slave trader. But then when I was eight my parents sent me to a boarding school in South Africa. It was the equivalent of a British public school with cold showers beatings and rotten food. But what it also had was a library full of books.

Wilbur Smith | food quotes

I'm not a prophet I can only use historical reality to come to a view of the future and my view is that Africa will return to being African and not European. The advent of colonialism was foreign to the country itself but it will return to what it was before the Europeans arrived.

I think money is essential to happiness and right now I wouldn't want to be anyone other than Wilbur Smith - I've had a fantastic life rewarded far more heavily than I deserve. Maybe I'd like to be J. K. Rowling but I'll settle for second best.

Wilbur Smith | happiness quotes

I hate politics. I like to write about it but to get involved in it to try and make a lot of ignorant people do what you want them to do waste of time. Go and write a book. It's more important and it'll last longer.

Wilbur Smith | politics quotes

I'm not a good father and they're not children any more the eldest is in his fifties. My relationship with their mothers broke down and because of what the law was they went with their mothers and were imbued with their mothers' morality in life and they were not my people any more.

Wilbur Wright | morning quotes

Wilfrid Laurier | faith quotes

It is a sound principle of finance and a still sounder principle of government that those who have the duty of expending the revenue of a country should also be saddled with the responsibility of levying and providing it.

Wilfrid Laurier | finance quotes

Let them look to the past but let them also look to the future let them look to the land of their ancestors but let them look also to the land of their children.

One reason the human race has such a low opinion of itself is that it gets so much of its wisdom from writers.

Wilfrid Sheed | wisdom quotes

A knowledge of the forces that rule society of the causes that have produced its upheavals and of society's resources for promoting healthy progress has become of vital concern to our civilization.

Wilhelm Dilthey | knowledge quotes

The existence of inherent limits of experience in no way settles the question about the subordination of facts of the human world to our knowledge of matter.

Wilhelm Dilthey | knowledge quotes

Thus in accordance with the spirit of the Historical School knowledge of the principles of the human world falls within that world itself and the human sciences form an independent system.

Wilhelm Dilthey | knowledge quotes

To attempt this would be like seeing without eyes or directing the gaze of knowledge behind one's own eye. Modern science can acknowledge no other than this epistemological stand-point.

Wilhelm Dilthey | knowledge quotes

By the fulfillment of my legal and moral duty I think I have earned punishment just as little as the tens of thousands of dutiful German officials who have now been imprisoned only because they carried out their duties.

Wilhelm Keitel | strength quotes

Wilhelm Reich | knowledge quotes

Will Arnett | amazing quotes

Well yeah. At a certain point you've got to be really honest with yourself. Like 'Why am I doing this? What are my motivations?' Like if you get into it because you want to be famous?

Will Arnett | famous quotes
