I don't care if I get $50m to do a film.
No artiste wants to be boxed. We thrive on challenging roles, and they can come from anywhere. I consider myself blessed to be recognised as a pan-Indian actor. Yes, it means more hard work, prepping more for the roles, but I'm all for it.
Aditi Rao Hydari
To be satisfied with a little, is the greatest wisdom; and he that increaseth his riches, increaseth his cares; but a contented mind is a hidden treasure, and trouble findeth it not.

Alain de Botton
It's amazing being on tour with a group of 50, but when one person gets sick, it goes through the whole company. We take care of each other – we're well stocked on Mucinex. When everything stays healthy, it's a joyful experience for everyone.
He who molds the public sentiment… makes statutes and decisions possible or impossible to make.
Any show that's bringing in a young audience is doing a good thing, because that's the only way that theater will continue to grow. All the other audience members are going to be dead soon!
When I'm out and about, it's rare for me to be recognized. But for some reason, every now and then, someone will know who I am. It might be because my picture occasionally appeared in 'Weekly Jump.'
I'd rather be David Ladd's father than Alan Ladd any day.
But surely for everything you have to love you have to pay some price.
My mind is often half-sleeping, like in a daydream.
Never stir up litigation. A worse man can scarcely be found than one who does this.
I take what I see work. I'm a strict believer in the scientific principle of believing nothing, only taking the best evidence available at the present time, interpreting it as best you can, and leaving your mind open to the fact that new evidence will appear tomorrow.
In politics, you never know who's going to die, retire, or – in Illinois – get indicted.
And of all illumination which human reason can give, none is comparable to the discovery of what we are, our nature, our obligations, what happiness we are capable of, and what are the means of attaining it.
I did manage to secure a feature film for 2005, though, which I'm really chuffed about.
One individual doesn't really accept the pro-life position of the party, and the other… says he supports it and takes a position that is logically inconsistent.

Aja Naomi King
It feels good when guys reach out to be inspired – and you have shown people an example of how you can come back and be better than you were before when adversity strikes; and when the world predicts the opposite, you show them you not only can be successful but be great.
I don't think your personal life has anything to do with your professional life. They are separate things. Whatever is happening at home shouldn't be carried to work. Everyone has his/her own journey. Some revel in the fact that they derive that from personal contentment, and others draw it from extreme sorrow.
I knew I was happy when I was dancing.
I got into beards right in the middle of the hipster boom.
Let the people on both sides keep their self-possession, and just as other clouds have cleared away in due time, so will this, and this great nation shall continue to prosper as before.
The only mystery in life is why the kamikaze pilots wore helmets.
I've always had a career. I have been working hard since I was 15 years old. Being someone's 'girlfriend' was never what I wanted to be famous for. What makes you 'famous' isn't always what you want to be 'labeled' as or known for.
Tonight we send a message to our party that here in Illinois, there will be a new generation of Republican leaders and we will fight to provide a better tomorrow for future generations. We've made clear the status quo is no longer acceptable.
The evidence that things are changing fast can be seen in the dramatic increase in the influence of blogging. We should be collecting emails as we used to collect telephone numbers and using them to better communicate our message to key voters.
Money is just something to be circulated.
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
What if there was a library which held every book? Not every book on sale, or every important book, or even every book in English, but simply every book – a key part of our planet's cultural legacy.
I've taken a philosophical position on e-mail. Although I think it's a wonderful communication technology, and it has a lot of good uses, it is abused quite a lot.
The type of cartooning that I think is generally referred to as 'alternative' or 'underground' is usually – the distinction is usually in terms of whether it's made by one person, the entire thing is done by one hand or more of a production line process, which is how the comics that we grew up reading were made.
On a beautiful clear Sunday morning, myself and James Nesbitt jumped out of a plane together at 18,000 feet.
I'm not coming in as an advocate of sports gambling. I'm trying to be more of a realist to say it's going on in a massive way… and I think the right course would be therefore to legalize it and regulate it.
I can express all my views on the slavery question by quotations from Henry Clay.
I think the important thing is that I've never tried to be someone I'm not. People can read right through that.
When you look back at the former Ring of Honor world champions, whether it be Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, Samoa Joe, Nigel McGuiness, the list goes on and on. These are the guys that built the lineage and importance of the Ring of Honor world championship.
I have never believed in being part of any one group or camp.
My message, especially to young people is to have courage to think differently, courage to invent, to travel the unexplored path, courage to discover the impossible and to conquer the problems and succeed.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
I was raised Catholic, but my father's people were Methodist, so we went to both churches.
I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.
