Lance Weller Quotes

"Oyster Tom said that they were not talking about people but about men. He agreed that most men remain accountable to themselves only, and that but poorly. He said that the proper chore of a man is to be chargeable for those and that dear to him and that this was something women understood and knew how to do without being told. It was a thing women looked for in their men, and this was why most women lived lives of bottomless sorrow."

Dean Norris Quotes

"The best thing I ever learned from my dad was he knew he wasnt the best of singers, but he always knew he was a great entertainer, and I always thought that was a good concept to bring along, that ultimately acting is an entertainment art and you have to be aware of the fact that you want people to be excited to be watching you."

Teresa Medeiros Quotes

The music swelled to a crescendo. Although Adrian kept her imprisoned against the muscular length of his body, he gave up all pretense of dancing.

She doesnt drive me to distraction with her endless questions, her incessant snooping, her harebrained schemes." His voice rose.

Kerry Washington Quotes

"I think as a whole America is dealing with the issue of homophobia. We got to be really honest about whether we believe in civil rights for all people or not. As Black people we need to remember the moment that we say its okay to disenfranchise one segment of society, were opening the door to move backward on ourselves."

Quotes About Certainty And Doubt

"Philosophy, though unable to tell us with certainty what is the true answer to the doubts which it raises, is able to suggest many possiblities which enlarge our thoughts and free them from the tyranny of custom.
