Mindy Kaling

We were probably the last people in the country to get a VCR and we didn’t have cable.

I was quite a shy child. I would get terribly nervous and throw up before my birthday party. And then I would be fine. I feel the same now. I get nervous, then it’s fine.

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.

Any time women come together with a collective intention, it’s a powerful thing.

Phylicia Rashad

As I approach my 88th birthday, it’s become apparent to me that my eyes and ears, among other appurtenances, aren’t quite what they used to be. The prospect of long flights to wherever in search of whatever are not quite as appealing.

Brittany Snow

The turning point was when I hit my 30th birthday. I thought, if really want to write, it’s time to start. I picked up the book How to Write a Novel in 90 Days. The author said to just write three pages a day, and I figured, I can do this. I never got past Page 3 of that book.

James Rollins

One I built when I was a kid, and it was a real miniature of Disneyland. I fell in love with the park when I went there with my parents on my 12th birthday.

Brit Marling

Mum loves me being famous! She is so excited and proud, as she had me so young and couldn’t support me, so I am living her dream, it’s sweeter for both of us. It’s her 40th birthday soon and I’m going to buy her 40 presents.

Jill Clayburgh

I’ll never forget my 24th birthday when my tooth got punched out. And for a second I was like, it would be really hilarious if I sold it on eBay. But I can’t, that’s just too creepy. I don’t think I can go there.

Evan Rachel Wood

The best way to remember your wife’s birthday is to remember it once.

Maureen O’Hara

Love the giver more than the gift.

Brigham Young

The Queen of Crafts herself, Martha Stewart, and I have the same birthday. I prefer to think it’s the glue-gun wielding, perfect-tart-producing Martha and not the copper pan-throwing, jail-going Martha. But I suppose if I am going to share a calendar square with some of Martha, I have to share it with all of Martha.

Sloane Crosley

Brilliantly lit from stem to stern, she looked like a sagging birthday cake.

I’m a summer baby, so I usually have my birthday as a good summer memory.

Like many women my age, I am 28 years old.

Mary Schmich

Katherine Jenkins

If you look over the years, the styles have changed – the clothes, the hair, the production, the approach to the songs. The icing to the cake has changed flavors. But if you really look at the cake itself, it’s really the same.

John Oates

Thirty was so strange for me. I’ve really had to come to terms with the fact that I am now a walking and talking adult.

I was fired at the pinnacle of my career, on my 39th birthday. And in the year that followed, I learned that there are many psychological phases of being ‘let go.’

The return of my birthday, if I remember it, fills me with thoughts which it seems to be the general care of humanity to escape.

Cat Deeley

Citizens, thank you for all your birthday wishes. I am 88 years old today and still lucky to live in the greatest city in the world.

Lucy took care of me on the set, and made sure that none of the crew cussed around me. She also had birthday parties for me and made sure that they were well attended.

Johnny Vegas

Let them eat cake.

Marie Antoinette

My brother got a .22 for his 12th birthday I got a .22. He got a hunting knife I got a hunting knife.

My son had his eighth birthday recently and we had a chance to borrow the film and show it to all of his friends that was at his birthday party and they loved it. I was a little nervous. I said they might not even like it, and say his daddy’s movie is wack, but they loved it.

Being a father at a later age is different from when I had my other two daughters when I was in my 20s and 30s. If you’re in your 60s and you’re with the kid every day, you’re dealing with the mind of a child, so it opens up that childishness in you again.

Martin Scorsese

As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.

Andrew Carnegie

I’d like to look like Madonna when I’m her age. I also look at athletes and love their bodies. I’ve always wanted to be muscly, not skinny. A lot of women yo-yo around, but I’m always aware if I’m getting a bit out of shape. I never look at the scales but I can just tell. It goes on my tum and bum.

Ellie Goulding

Each age tries to form its own conception of the past. Each age writes the history of the past anew with reference to the conditions uppermost in its own time.

Frederick Jackson Turner

I can’t wait to be that age and hanging out with a bunch of people hanging out all day playing golf and going to the beach, all my own age. We’d be laughing and having a good time and getting loopy on our prescription drugs. Driving golf carts around. I can’t wait.

Cameron Diaz

People quit on jobs. They quit on marriages. They quit on school. There’s an immediacy of this day and age that doesn’t lend itself to being committed to anything.

Emily Blunt

You get to a certain age where you prepare yourself for happiness. Sometimes you never remember to actually get happy.

John Mayer

It is a sobering thought that when Mozart was my age, he had been dead for two years.

Tom Lehrer

Middle age is when you’re sitting at home on a Saturday night and the telephone rings and you hope it isn’t for you.

Ogden Nash

Revenge is the naked idol of the worship of a semi-barbarous age.

Percy Bysshe Shelley

At my age it is unseemly to be pessimistic.

Naguib Mahfouz

Life would be infinitely happier if we could only be born at the age of eighty and gradually approach eighteen.

Mark Twain

Being gay and being a woman has one big thing in common, which is that we both become invisible after the age of 42. Who wants a gay 50-year-old? No one, let me tell you.

Rupert Everett

Losing both parents at a young age gave me a sense that you can’t really control life – so you’d better live it while it’s here. I stopped believing in a storybook existence a long time ago. All you can do is push in a direction and see what comes of it.

Jon Hamm

An artist must be a reactionary. He has to stand out against the tenor of the age and not go flopping along.

Andre Maurois

My wife and I, unlike many intellectuals, spent five years working on assembly lines. We came to fully understand the criticisms of the industrial age, in which you are an appendage of a machine that sets the pace.

Alvin Toffler

Our Age of Anxiety is, in great part, the result of trying to do today’s job with yesterday’s tools and yesterday’s concepts.

Marshall McLuhan

I first learned that there were black people living in some place called other than the United States in the western hemisphere when I was a very little boy, and my father told me that when he was a boy about my age, he wanted to be an Episcopal priest, because he so admired his priest, a black man from someplace called Haiti.

Henry Louis Gates

Do you remember when you were 10 or 11 years old and you really thought your folks were the best? They were completely omniscient and you took their word for everything. And then you got older and you went through this hideous age when suddenly they were the devil, they were bullies, and they didn’t know anything.

Chuck Palahniuk

I always wanted to be a designer. I read books on fashion from the age of 12.

Alexander McQueen

I feel we live in the kind of culture now where you have to be very smart to navigate the right way, and I just don’t have those smarts. I think with age and time it will change, but I can’t obsess about it.

Sienna Miller

I always looked really young for my age. And once I hit 23, 24 and 25, I was then allowed to play the cool 18-year-olds and stuff.

Ben Barnes

How young can you die of old age?

Steven Wright

Man arrives as a novice at each age of his life.

Nicolas Chamfort

I find that a man is as old as his work. If his work keeps him from moving forward, he will look forward with the work.

William Ernest Hocking

What goes on in Europe concerns us greatly because, if Europe comes apart, the E.U. comes apart, then you’re going to have enormous impact on America, that’s a very big trading partner of ours, and people own securities around the world in this day and age.

Michael Bloomberg

Nearly all the powerful people of this age are unbelievers, the best of them in doubt and misery, the most in plodding hesitation, doing as well as they can, what practical work lies at hand.

John Ruskin

The credit of advancing science has always been due to individuals and never to the age.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Young men soon give, and soon forget, affronts old age is slow in both.

Joseph Addison

If youth knew if age could.

Sigmund Freud

Middle age is the awkward period when Father Time starts catching up with Mother Nature.

Harold Coffin

Any young man who is unmarried at the age of twenty one is a menace to the community.

Brigham Young

Age appears to be best in four things old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.

Francis Bacon

Another principle is, the deepest affections of our hearts gather around some human form in which are incarnated the living thoughts and ideas of the passing age.

Matthew Simpson

‘Dallas’ hit a chord back in the late Seventies and Eighties because it was the age of greed: here you have this unapologetic character who is mean and nasty and ruthless and does it all with an evil grin. I think people related to JR back then because we all have someone we know exactly like him. Everyone in the world knows a JR.

Larry Hagman

Elizabeth Peyton, the artist known for tiny, dazzling portraits of radiant youth, is now painting tiny, dazzling portraits of radiant middle age.

Jerry Saltz

There is always some specific moment when we become aware that our youth is gone but, years after, we know it was much later.

Mignon McLaughlin

America doesn’t reward people of my age, either in day-to-day life or for their performances.

Meryl Streep

I did successfully kick tobacco at the age of 34. I smoked for like 20 years, from 14 to 34.

Larry Hagman

About the time I turned 50, I experienced the profound biological change that often accompanies women at that age. Also, I put two kids in college and lost both of my parents, so I’m no longer somebody’s daughter.

Jane Pauley

I never quite toed the line. I was a bit disruptive. All my early school reports from the age of 5 were ‘Daniel must learn not to distract others.’ And now, that’s what I do for a living.

Dan Stevens

The second album was emotionally exhausting and my life felt like it had become very serious at a very young age.

Delta Goodrem

A woman tells her doctor, ‘I’ve got a bad back.’ The doctor says, ‘It’s old age.’ The woman says, ‘I want a second opinion.’ The doctor says: ‘Okay – you’re ugly as well.’

Tommy Cooper

You are 27 or 28 right? It is very tough to live at that age. When nothing is sure. I have sympathy with you.

Haruki Murakami

Old age is fifteen years older than I am.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

I must be more sensible and realize that at my age, illusions are hardly permitted and they will always destroy me.

Paul Cezanne

I feel the 21st century is another new age. Not only can we collaborate again with nature, but we have to. It’s an emergency.

Bjork

Old age is just a record of one’s whole life.

Muhammad Ali

I happen to be interested in watching a face age. I like faces of women aging so it makes me personally quite sad. That’s a beautiful gift from God. If people don’t want to see that anymore then I won’t be in anymore movies.

Debra Winger

The tendency of old age to the body, say the physiologists, is to form bone. It is as rare as it is pleasant to meet with an old man whose opinions are not ossified.

Bob Wells

People say women shouldn’t have long hair over a certain age, but I’ve never done what everyone says.

Jane Seymour

American Idol transcends age, gender, ethnicity, everything.

Carrie Underwood

The history of my life must begin by the earliest circumstance which my memory can evoke it will therefore commence when I had attained the age of eight years and four months.

Giacomo Casanova

It is unthinkable for a Frenchman to arrive at middle age without having syphilis and the Cross of the Legion of Honor.

Andre Gide

It’s not the normal way to look at things but I experienced death at a really young age and because of that it’s been part of my mental landscape that death is really very possible.

Cate Blanchett

I don’t believe in happy endings, but I do believe in happy travels, because ultimately, you die at a very young age, or you live long enough to watch your friends die. It’s a mean thing, life.

George Clooney

Old age isn’t so bad when you consider the alternative.

Maurice Chevalier

Though the Jazz Age continued it became less and less an affair of youth. The sequel was like a children’s party taken over by the elders.

F. Scott Fitzgerald

What’s a man’s age? He must hurry more, that’s all Cram in a day, what his youth took a year to hold.

Robert Browning

My age and health will never allow me to realize the dream of art I’ve been pursuing all my life.

Paul Cezanne

I’d like to talk about free markets. Information in the computer age is the last genuine free market left on earth except those free markets where indigenous people are still surviving. And that’s basically becoming limited.

Russell Means

Growing old is no more than a bad habit which a busy person has no time to form.

Andre Maurois

We are approaching a new age of synthesis. Knowledge cannot be merely a degree or a skill… it demands a broader vision, capabilities in critical thinking and logical deduction without which we cannot have constructive progress.

Li Ka Shing

At this age, I should be leading a quiet life.

Aung San Suu Kyi

I think it’s pretty crazy to say you’ve been typecast at the age of 20 before you’ve even really started getting going.

Tom Felton

It’s only at this age that I can say the word ‘art’ without flinching.

Mira Nair

Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.

Samuel Ullman

Middle age is youth without levity, and age without decay.

Doris Day

Just call me a family man and an actor who digs his whole scene, side interests and all. Just say I feel mighty good at the ripe old age of 27.

Bobby Darin

I think the most exciting thing is that you expect people our age to know the music, but actually a lot of kids know the music, and if anything is left, we have left really good music, and that’s the important part, not the mop-tops or whatever.

Ringo Starr

In youth we learn in age we understand.

Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

We tend to think of age only in time, but I don’t think it has much to do with time at all there’s a whole load of other things. I’ve met 16-year-olds who are old and 90-year-olds who are young.

Roger Daltrey

Well, once you’ve resigned yourself to the fact that you are the more mature pop performer and you’re past the age you ever thought you would do it, you might as well do it as long as you can. As long as I can still lift a microphone, then I’ll do it, you know.

Jarvis Cocker

I want to be part of the resurgence of things that are tangible, beautiful and soulful, rather than just give in to the digital age. But when I talk to people about this they just say, ‘Yeah, I know what you mean,’ and stare at their mobiles.

Jack White

Part of the reason I sort of shot out like a cannon out of Michigan and left home at such an early age is because I had to feel independent.

Madonna Ciccone

I never took guitar lessons. I took classical piano lessons from the age of six when we lived in Holland.

Eddie Van Halen

The sanitary and mechanical age we are now entering makes up for the mercy it grants to our sense of smell by the ferocity with which it assails our sense of hearing.

Havelock Ellis

Age has been the perfect fire extinguisher for flaming youth.

Navjot Singh Sidhu

What I really tried to do with Helen was make her show this sad side of her. She was married off at 16, was so young and living in this castle that can’t leave because of how she looks, and married to a man she hates and three times her age.

Diane Kruger

There are only two things a child will share willingly communicable diseases and its mother’s age.

Benjamin Spock

I’m inspired by people who keep on rolling, no matter their age.

Jimmy Buffett

Old age is no place for sissies.

Bette Davis

I had used eclectic therapy and behavior therapy on myself at the age of 19 to get over my fear of public speaking and of approaching young women in public.

Albert Ellis

I’ve got volumes on how not to behave. I’ve got more information now than a guy should have at my age.

Charlie Sheen

One of the many things nobody ever tells you about middle age is that it’s such a nice change from being young.

William Feather

He who has not the spirit of this age, has all the misery of it.

Voltaire

Age is strictly a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.

Jack Benny

Maybe back in the day you didn’t need to be the greatest looking to be on TV and you didn’t need to speak the best, but in this day and age, I think you need to be the package. You need to look the part for your sponsors, you need to be able to speak the part for the media and to big CEOs.

Danica Patrick

I try to write lyrics so that they won’t age, which sort of leaves you with the big subjects like death and love and sex and violence.

Florence Welch

We live in an age where the artist is forgotten. He is a researcher. I see myself that way.

David Hockney

The ruling ideas of each age have ever been the ideas of its ruling class.

Karl Marx

Experience is a revelation in the light of which we renounce our errors of youth for those of age.

Ambrose Bierce

If you live to be one hundred, you’ve got it made. Very few people die past that age.

George Burns

When marrying, ask yourself this question: Do you believe that you will be able to converse well with this person into your old age? Everything else in marriage is transitory.

Friedrich Nietzsche

I cried on my 18th birthday. I thought 17 was such a nice age. You’re young enough to get away with things, but you’re old enough, too.

Liv Tyler

Old age is a tyrant, who forbids, under pain of death, the pleasures of youth.

Francois de La Rochefoucauld

Old age comes on suddenly, and not gradually as is thought.

Emily Dickinson

I have worked very hard on being aware of my childhood but moving forward and not letting it bring me down emotionally. That is a hard thing – especially when you have children of your own and you remember what happened to you at that age.

Samantha Morton

I don’t believe one grows older. I think that what happens early on in life is that at a certain age one stands still and stagnates.

T. S. Eliot

Old age adds to the respect due to virtue, but it takes nothing from the contempt inspired by vice it whitens only the hair.

Ira Gershwin

Study after study confirms that even when you control for variables like profession, education, hours worked, age, marital status, and children, men still are compensated substantially more – even in professions, like nursing, dominated by women. No wonder there’s a gender gap.

Dee Dee Myers

It seems as if an age of genius must be succeeded by an age of endeavour riot and extravagance by cleanliness and hard work.

Virginia Woolf

One keeps forgetting old age up to the very brink of the grave.

Sidonie Gabrielle Colette

The reason can only be this: heroic poetry depends on an heroic age, and an age is heroic because of what it is, not because of what it does.

Lascelles Abercrombie

Writers obviously have to bear witness to the harsh face of the age.

Alexander McCall Smith

By age seven, I used to comb my hair for performances, just pull my hair up into a bun. Granted, it wasn’t a very intricate hairstyle. Still, to be that responsible and disciplined at age seven is unusual.

Janet Jackson

We live in an age of instant knowledge. And there’s almost a sense of entitlement to that.

J. J. Abrams

It’s the golden age of French cinema again but it’s because Sarkozy had the guts to push through copyright law.

Harvey Weinstein

Rashness belongs to youth prudence to old age.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

Second to agriculture, humbug is the biggest industry of our age.

Alfred Nobel

I think women should start to embrace their age. What’s the alternative to getting older? You die. I can’t change the day I was born. But I can take care of my skin, my body, my mind, and try to live my life and be happy.

Olivia Munn

The wonderful thing about age is that your knees don’t work as well, you can’t run down steps quite as easily and obviously you can’t lift heavy weights. But your mind doesn’t feel any different.

Roger Moore

It’s ironic that at age 32, at probably the greatest moment of my career, with The Godfather having such an enormous success, I wasn’t even aware of it, because I was somewhere else under the deadline again.

Francis Ford Coppola

My habit would have been to veer towards the dark – to prove I was something edgy, or maybe to prove that I was cognisant of the dark side. Now, with age and confidence, I can say, yeah, that’s true, but I am cognisant of the fact that people can do things well. And can be more loving than you expect.

George Saunders

The young people have MTV and rock and roll. Why would they go to read poetry? Poetry belongs to the Stone Age. It awakens in us perceptions that go back to those times.

Robert Morgan

I shall not grow conservative with age.

Elizabeth Cady Stanton

I think you have to be a little bit strict. You can’t be friend and their parent in a lot of situations, especially in this day and age where it’s so dangerous for kids. So there’s a bit of sternness, I guess, in the way I raise my kids.

Tim McGraw

Not to expose your true feelings to an adult seems to be instinctive from the age of seven or eight onwards.

George Orwell

I would love a family. I’m at the age where the wish for a child gets stronger. But who knows.

Cameron Diaz

I wanted to do two things when I was growing up, about your age. I wanted to play in the NBA, and I wanted to be a businessman after my basketball career was over, and that is what I am doing now.

Magic Johnson

A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new when an age ends and when the soul of a nation long suppressed finds utterance.

Jawaharlal Nehru

Anyone who writes an autobiographical work at the age of 34 is, at best, presumptuous. It occurred to me that it was time to set the record straight.

Jessica Savitch

I wish I’d gotten sober at a younger age.

Janice Dickinson

Youth is a blunder Manhood a struggle, Old Age a regret.

Benjamin Disraeli

It has been claimed at times that our modern age of technology facilitates dictatorship.

Henry A. Wallace

I think it’s your mental attitude. So many of us start dreading age in high school and that’s a waste of a lovely life. ‘Oh… I’m 30, oh, I’m 40, oh, 50.’ Make the most of it.

Betty White

I never took guitar lessons. I took classical piano lessons from the age of six when we lived in Holland. And when we moved to America, it was just the typical thing except I was really good at it so was my brother.

Eddie Van Halen

All my early school reports from the age of 5 were ‘Daniel must learn not to distract others.’

Dan Stevens

Everybody past a certain age, regardless of how they look on the outside, pretty much constantly dreams of being able to escape from their lives.

Doug Coupland

I don’t want to fight aging I want to take good care of myself, but plastic surgery and all that? I’m not interested.

Christine Lahti

In the modern media age we are rarely surprised by what we see. Whether it’s on television or film or in the theatre, everything is so advertised, so trailed, that most entertainment is merely what you thought it was going to be like.

Rowan Atkinson

Ours is essentially a tragic age, so we refuse to take it tragically.

David Herbert Lawrence

Even in this day and age, if you’re not married, there are people who are like, ‘Awww! Don’t worry, it’ll happen for you someday.’

Kristen Wiig

We aren’t in an information age, we are in an entertainment age.

Tony Robbins

Save your money. You’re going to need twice as much money in your old age as you think.

Michael Caine

People tend to become more emotionally intelligent as they age and mature.

Daniel Goleman

Information is the oxygen of the modern age. It seeps through the walls topped by barbed wire, it wafts across the electrified borders.

Ronald Reagan

TV is sort of the only way to go for an actress my age to make a decent salary with independent films, you just can’t.

Jessica Lange

I have always felt that a woman has the right to treat the subject of her age with ambiguity until, perhaps, she passes into the realm of over ninety. Then it is better she be candid with herself and with the world.

Carl Sandburg

I love physical kinds of comedy and getting down and dirty and doing stunts. When I was growing up, I was always getting into fights with guys and usually punching out boys my age because I was a lot bigger and tougher. So I’m naturally accustomed to putting myself into the headspace of a girl who can take care of herself.

Cameron Diaz

My grandparents got married at a very young age, and a lot of what I think about marriage is based on their relationship. I watched them over the years and saw how they dealt with everything together, as a team.

Kyle Chandler

The Border Ballads, for instance, and the Robin Hood Ballads, clearly suppose a state of society which is nothing but a very circumscribed and not very important heroic age.

Lascelles Abercrombie

It’s not always possible to sit down and eat at home in this day and age of fast-paced living, but if you are going to eat out, do so as a family and support all the great local places in your areas. I’ll still eat at the same diner I did as a kid with my parents.

Michael Symon

You have to be desirable. And that’s why so many woman of my age or even younger are pushed to Botox and plastic surgery, all the things that people say, ‘Why do women do this?’ Where do you go in your 50s in your career?

Kim Cattrall

My inspiration was my mom. She’s a great cook, and she still cooks, and we still banter back and forth about cooking. Growing up in a mostly Portuguese community, food was important and the family table was extremely important. At a very young age I understood that.

Emeril Lagasse

Parenting is an impossible job at any age.

Harrison Ford

I was confirmed at my prep school at the age of 13.

Richard Dawkins

We pay when old for the excesses of youth.

J. B. Priestley

I wrote a screenplay for a ‘Sweet Valley High’ adaptation, and it’s really amazing to me how many women who are my age have responded to the idea and are excited about the movie.

Diablo Cody

Women would be disproportionately affected by the privatization of social security. It is one of the most important safety nets for American women in old age, or in times of disability, to insure financial income for their families.

Barbara Mikulski

It is not well to make great changes in old age.

Charles Spurgeon

We virtually never feel our age, but thinking that we should can lead to disaster.

Martha Beck

Alexander at the head of the world never tasted the true pleasure that boys of his own age have enjoyed at the head of a school.

Horace Walpole

Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.

Mark Twain

Publishing is in a kind of Jurassic age.

Paulo Coelho

With age, you get to a place where you don’t want to knock people out. You just want to give people a hug.

Vin Diesel

Age is just a number. It’s totally irrelevant unless, of course, you happen to be a bottle of wine.

Joan Collins

God employs several translators some pieces are translated by age, some by sickness, some by war, some by justice.

John Donne

You just never know when you’re living in a golden age.

Alexander Payne

I’ve never worried about age.

Jeanne Moreau

We all know now that people can look good for their age. It isn’t so extraordinary, I don’t know why people go on about it so much.

Francesca Annis

I grew up on a farm in a small town where you do or say one thing and everybody knows about it. You see it happen, there’s always the town gossip – ‘Oh did you hear about so and so, or did you hear what went on in this household?’ So I learned at a very young age just to keep my mouth shut.

Garrett Hedlund

We Jews have a special attachment to the Book. The study of page after page in tomes yellowing with age was obligatory.

Theodore Bikel

IQ is a commodity, data is a commodity. I’m far more interested in watching people interact at a restaurant with their smartphone. We can all read ‘Tech Crunch,’ ‘Ad Age.’ I would rather be living in the trenches. I would rather be going to Whole Foods in Columbus Circle to watch people shop with their smartphones.

Gary Vaynerchuk

Growing up on stage, I was introduced to makeup at a young age and I will never forget the first time I tried on a L’Oreal Paris iconic lipstick – it was instant glamour and I’ve been hooked ever since.

Lea Michele

Bashfulness is an ornament to youth, but a reproach to old age.

Aristotle

When you get to my age life seems little more than one long march to and from the lavatory.

A. C. Benson

I’d date someone younger or older age doesn’t matter to me. Or looks, really – it’s all about maturity.

Leona Lewis

Now is the age of anxiety.

W. H. Auden

I’m totally into new age and self-help books. I used to work in a bookstore and that’s the section they gave me, and I got way into it. I just loved the power of positive thinking, letting yourself go.

Jason Mraz

A final word: I am not knowledgeable about the internet. I do not have a computer. I guess that at 74 years of age, I don’t have the patience to learn.

David Wilkerson

Forty is the old age of youth, fifty is the youth of old age.

Hosea Ballou

I think you can’t really escape any kind of spiritual education as a child, whether it’s New Age or Judaism or Buddhism or whatever it is. You can’t escape it, even if you completely disagree with it, you still have it as a foundation that you base things off of.

Jack White

Why should 20-year-olds only be considered sexy? I think we get better with age.

Jenny McCarthy

There is a certain age at which a child looks at you in all earnestness and delivers a long, pleased speech in all the true inflections of spoken English, but with not one recognizable syllable.

Annie Dillard

I’ve been screaming at the top of my lungs at my family, ‘Work out! Work out! Old age is coming!’

Cher

I was born at the age of twelve on an MGM lot.

Judy Garland

One of my grandfathers, actually, having gone out there as a minister, decided he would better serve the people as a doctor. So at a very late age – at the age of 38 in fact – he changed course and decided to become a doctor.

Colin Firth

When I was at school, I was in choirs more than anything else, from a very young age, about 9 years old. And then I started taking drum lessons.

Ben Barnes

I avoid talking before the youth of the age as I would dancing before them: for if one’s tongue don’t move in the steps of the day, and thinks to please by its old graces, it is only an object of ridicule.

Horace Walpole

The face you have at age 25 is the face God gave you, but the face you have after 50 is the face you earned.

Cindy Crawford

Old age is not a disease – it is strength and survivorship, triumph over all kinds of vicissitudes and disappointments, trials and illnesses.

Maggie Kuhn

Religiosity turns out to be the best indicator of civic involvement: it’s more accurate than education, age, income, gender or race.

Jonathan Sacks

Age is how we determine how valuable you are.

Jane Elliot

Age carries all things away, even the mind.

Virgil

I would often find myself, at the age of 21, at midnight, running down a dark street on my own with 10 men chasing me. And the fact they had cameras in their hands made that legal.

Sienna Miller

The idea of regretting not doing this seemed insane to me. Sitting in the corner at a bar at age 60, saying: ‘I could’ve been Bond. Buy me a drink.’ That’s the saddest place I could be. At least now at 60 I can say: ‘I was Bond. Now buy me a drink.’

Daniel Craig

I prefer younger men. In some ways, they are much more open to a woman being stronger and independent then some of the men my age.

Kim Cattrall

Alas, after a certain age every man is responsible for his face.

Albert Camus

A comfortable old age is the reward of a well-spent youth. Instead of its bringing sad and melancholy prospects of decay, it would give us hopes of eternal youth in a better world.

Maurice Chevalier

To be told that one can be dependent on one’s parents until age 26 should strike a young person who wants to grow up as demeaning, not as something to celebrate.

Dennis Prager

A man does not die of love or his liver or even of old age he dies of being a man.

Miguel de Unamuno

I’m not as far along as Jack Nicklaus was at this age, but I’m trying.

Tiger Woods

I am 54 and age is slowly writing itself on my face.

Arthur Smith

The funniest racism is the racism between minorities. It’s something you don’t see dramatized, but almost every minority I know who’s my age, they have these funny stories about their parents stereotyping other minorities.

Mindy Kaling

At a young age winning is not the most important thing… the important thing is to develop creative and skilled players with good confidence.

Arsene Wenger

Middle age is when you’ve met so many people that every new person you meet reminds you of someone else.

Ogden Nash

What though youth gave love and roses, Age still leaves us friends and wine.

Thomas More

To own the dominant, or only, newspaper in a mid-sized American city was, for many decades, a kind of license to print money. In the Internet age, however, no one has figured out how to rescue the newspaper in the United States or abroad.

Eric Alterman

You never choose the way that you’re raised, it’s just the way that you were raised, but you do get to a certain age where you’re in a position to question the expectations of you and the way that you’ve been formed by your surroundings.

Mia Wasikowska

Forty is the old age of youth fifty the youth of old age.

Victor Hugo

I want to age with some dignity.

Pete Townshend

The older I grow the more I distrust the familiar doctrine that age brings wisdom.

H. L. Mencken

For students today, only 10 percent of children from working-class families graduate from college by the age of 24 as compared to 58 percent of upper-middle-class and wealthy families.

Patrick J. Kennedy

Age is not measured by years. Nature does not equally distribute energy. Some people are born old and tired while others are going strong at seventy.

Dorothy Thompson

In the 1970s and 1980s there was so little decent fiction for young people, but we’re now in a golden age that shows no sign of fading. Philip Pullman, J. K. Rowling, Lemony Snicket are only three of the best known among a good number of equals.

David Mitchell

Swing voters are more appropriately known as the ‘idiot voters’ because they have no set of philosophical principles. By the age of fourteen, you’re either a Conservative or a Liberal if you have an IQ above a toaster.

Ann Coulter

I got to experience soccer at the highest level at a young age I decided I wanted to be part of that for as long as possible.

Mia Hamm

I’m 20 years old. I like to party as much as anyone my age. Going clubbing is my way of relaxing or releasing a lot of stress. I don’t feel that I should have to justify that part of my life. I don’t know that I’m necessarily an addict.

Lindsay Lohan

My sister and I shared a bedroom our entire lives and I believe she discovered the Beatles when she was about 11 and I’m four years younger. So from the age of 7 until 17 we had nothing but Beatles paraphernalia in our room, even those little stuffed Beatles that went on stands that are dressed as the Sgt. Pepper band.

Christina Ricci

It looks good when you see someone kicking at the age of 51 with no double. It’s kinda cool for people to know that past 50 we can keep flexible.

Jean Claude Van Damme

They say eyes clear with age.

Philip Larkin

But the age of chivalry is gone. That of sophisters, economists, and calculators has succeeded and the glory of Europe is extinguished forever.

Edmund Burke

The divine right of husbands, like the divine right of kings, may, it is hoped, in this enlightened age, be contested without danger.

Mary Wollstonecraft

I never wanted to do TV. I just did what I was trained to do through the Special Forces, and I’ve been doing that from a very young age.

Bear Grylls

Confusion of goals and perfection of means seems, in my opinion, to characterize our age.

Albert Einstein

If children are not introduced to music at an early age, I believe something fundamental is actually being taken from them.

Luciano Pavarotti

He who is of calm and happy nature will hardly feel the pressure of age, but to him who is of an opposite disposition youth and age are equally a burden.

Plato

In Hollywood, you play a mom, and the next thing you know, you’re on ‘The Golden Girls.’ They age you so fast.

Gabrielle Union

Old age is like everything else. To make a success of it, you’ve got to start young.

Theodore Roosevelt

Old age is the most unexpected of all things that happen to a man.

Leon Trotsky

You live in a deranged age, more deranged that usual, because in spite of great scientific and technological advances, man has not the faintest idea of who he is or what he is doing.

Walker Percy

Young man, the secret of my success is that an early age I discovered that I was not God.

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

In this age of media and Internet access, we are much more talkative than ever before.

David Duchovny

I don’t mind my age.

Heather Mills

If you read back in the Bible, the letter of the apostle Paul to the church of Thessalonia, he said that in the latter days before the end of the age that the Earth would be caught up in what he called the birth pangs of a new order.

Pat Robertson

I am hoping for peaceful transition into a new age. Obama has already played a great role in initiating us into that vision. If he were to be harmed in any way, it would spawn the birth of a million Obamas.

Saul Williams

Photography suits the temper of this age – of active bodies and minds. It is a perfect medium for one whose mind is teeming with ideas, imagery, for a prolific worker who would be slowed down by painting or sculpting, for one who sees quickly and acts decisively, accurately.

Edward Weston

How incessant and great are the ills with which a prolonged old age is replete.

C. S. Lewis

I began to speak well at a very advanced age – 15, 16, 17 years old. It was psychological: the trauma of war, my family and growing up on my own. I was more or less a street kid.

Roberto Cavalli

Young women from a very young age are taught that life will be easier if you can just turn on the charming smile and say very little and be complacent and docile and sweet.

Amber Heard

Over the years Woodstock got glorified and romanticised and became the event that symbolised Utopia. It’s the last page of our collective memory of the age of innocence. Then things turned ugly and would never be the same again.

Ang Lee

Today more than ever we need creative minds to address the issues of the age. And one of the most urgent is this: How can humanity know so much, achieve so much, and still fail so many people so badly?

King Abdullah II

We live in an age where anonymity is growing in magnitude like a bomb going off.

Jock Sturges

Any role that big is going to be a challenge for any actor, but for an actor of a young age, it’s going to be even tougher.

Jeff Bridges

Famous Lion Quotes 2020 Collection

I did an interview once where I was asked who I found attractive and I went on about cartoons and Nala from ‘The Lion King’ – and it’s a bit weird but various of my ex-girlfriends actually did look like Nala.

Eddie Redmayne

Fake eyelashes can instantly give me a more dramatic look and also help to accentuate my eyes, which are a focal point to achieving the Lion Babe look.

Jillian Hervey

Several countries – among them Austria, Costa Rica, Denmark, Finland, India, Israel and Sweden – ban or severely restrict the use of wild animals in circuses. In Brazil, a movement to ban wild animals from circuses started after hungry lions managed to grab and devour a small boy.

Peter Singer

Men are like lions. We hunt.

Kevin Hart

When a lion doesn’t get its prey, it remains hungry. When the prey saves himself, he has not won, but has saved his life.

Uday Kotak

My time at Barnard was fun but stressful. I transferred there from the acting conservatory at NYU, and my Rolling Around On the Floor Pretending to Be a Lion classes didn’t translate into many academic credits.

Lauren Graham

The lion’s share of what I hear right now are people who, intentional or accidental, have avoided all jazz prior to 1960. And all the musicians who were successful in the ’60s spent their entire lives, prior to 1960, listening to all the musicians these people avoid.

Branford Marsalis

I think Clinton, after getting into office and into Washington, was shocked at being bludgeoned. So he spent time trying to be all things to all people – one way guaranteed not to be successful or respected in a lion’s den. You can’t just play around with all those big cats – you’ve got to take somebody on.

Maya Angelou

A lion’s work hours are only when he’s hungry; once he’s satisfied, the predator and prey live peacefully together.

Chuck Jones

An injured lion still wants to roar.

Randy Pausch

Vegetarians are cool. All I eat are vegetarians – except for the occasional mountain lion steak.

Ted Nugent

When I was a kid, I worked in the circus. It was a touring circus that was owned by a man named Terrell Jacobs. It was just one big tent, and he was a lion tamer. He didn’t have any kids, but the bit was that I would dress up as his son in an identical outfit.

Christopher Walken

Perhaps Western civilization is in a post-decline phase, or maybe the decline is just taking a really long time, like the Roman Empire’s did. The Romans had gladiators and Christian-hungry lions and that sort of thing. We have MTV.

Tom Shales

A lion is not a lion is not a lion. As individuals, as mates, as members of a society, they’re all very different.

Frans Lanting

Before I was an actor I was a break dancer, one of those street performers you see. I guess my introduction into the professional world of performing was a stint as back up dancer for Lionel Richie and I performed at the closing ceremony at the ’84 Olympics.

Cuba Gooding, Jr.

What we are effectively doing, I say this to the young people of America whom my colleagues represent, is leaving our children and grandchildren the tab for fighting a war, letting them pay for the lion’s share of it by simply adding it to the national debt.

John Spratt

It’s an incredibly difficult thing to bring a giraffe down. They can kill a lion with a single blow from their feet.

Joanna Lumley

I shot my first lion at the age of 14 when a pride threatened my father’s livestock while he was away on holiday.

Wilbur Smith

There is something about seeing rhinos and lions running free that excites you. It’s not that you feel afraid; it’s more like you’re liberated by seeing them.

Michael Douglas

I am impelled, not to squeak like a grateful and apologetic mouse, but to roar like a lion out of pride in my profession.

John Steinbeck

I loved the Scarecrow and the Tin Man and the Lion and you could kind of see the actors’ faces in them. It wasn’t an entirely new face sculpted around them. What made those characters so human and appealing to me was seeing those great actors underneath there. They weren’t lost behind a bunch of appliances.

Rich Moore

Natasha Lyonne is fantastic on Twitter. She posts hilarious pictures. I don’t even know where she finds some of them; it’ll be like a random picture of a chinchilla kissing a lion or Bill Murray and Jim Belushi out on a boat or something.

Uzo Aduba

I had to have help getting up these stairs because I’ve been tackled by so many lions and tigers. Really. I’m like an old football player.

Tippi Hedren

I thought I’d write a massive postmodern novel about Richard the Lionheart and Robin Hood, but it turns out they couldn’t have met because the first mention of Robin Hood appears 60 years after Richard died.

Justin Cartwright

From a very young age, music was very much in my house. I would sit with my mom, with the old LPs, listening to The Beatles and Carly Simon and Lionel Richie. The old LPs used to have the lyrics. From there, I would put on dance and music displays for my family, just to entertain them and make people laugh and smile.

Lara Pulver

I feel like my Lion Babe look is an embellishment of my everyday look – it’s definitely more extravagant and more artistic.

Jillian Hervey

The lions taught me photography. They taught me patience and the sense of beauty, a beauty that penetrates you.

Yann Arthus-Bertrand

The American Right has an amazing ability to lionize leaders whose lives are the precise antithesis of the political values that define their image.

Glenn Greenwald

A lioness has got a lot more power than the lion likes to think she has.

Jacki Weaver

If a lion could talk, we could not understand him.

Ludwig Wittgenstein

Well, you know, I played Mufasa in the workshop of The Lion King.

Keith David

There are no lazy veteran lion hunters.

Norman Ralph Augustine

I don’t know how many lions and leopards I’ve shot. I’ve shot two elephants, which was enough – never again. It’s a melancholy and moving thing to hunt an elephant. It’s like shooting an old man.

Wilbur Smith

I know, it’s weird that I’ve never done a musical. I turned down two of them. ‘The Lion King’ and ‘The Producers.’ I turned two of the biggest Broadway musicals down, am I a mess?

Mario Cantone

What I hope is that I don’t just become ‘Peter from ‘The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.’ I want to try and do something else to be a good actor and a respected actor.

William Moseley

That’s the thing about Lionsgate. They are fearless. No other studio would have made ‘Hunger Games’ the way they did. They’re being fearless in the way they make decisions, and it’s paying off for them.

Drew Goddard

The ‘Chronicles of Narnia’ have been favourites of mine since my childhood when I misread ‘Aslan’ as ‘Alsatian’ and was struck by the genius of naming a lion after a dog!

Chris Riddell

I got to know Elton John’s older music by learning to like his newer stuff. ‘The Lion King?’ That’s what I like.

Aaron Schock

I love watching the Serengeti, the way lions live. The only way the king lion loses his crown is by somebody physically defeating him.

Ray Lewis

I love soccer, love tennis… Roger Federer has been a favourite for a long, long time. The kind of consistency he has shown, 16 Grand Slam titles… The way he handles himself in pressure situations is admirable… He is so calm… In soccer, I’m a huge fan of Barcelona… I like watching Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and David Villa.

Virat Kohli

‘Argo,’ ‘Lincoln,’ and ‘Zero Dark Thirty,’ three films honored with Best Picture Oscar nominations, lionize their Washington-anchored protagonists as crafty, competent, and virtually incorruptible.

Ron Fournier

Once I climbed into a mountain lion’s cage and she bounded at me and put her paw on my face, but she kept her claws withdrawn.

Edward Hoagland

I’m a lioness. I have four cubs. I’m a mom. I want to take care of my kids and protect them.

Heidi Klum

Until you win a series, it’s difficult to place yourself in that elite group of great Lions players. It’s not enough to produce one-off performances or be nearly-men.

Brian O’Driscoll

The tabloids are like animals, with their own behavioural patterns. There’s no point in complaining about them, any more than complaining that lions might eat you.

David Mellor

People listen to music with cavemen ears: Is it a bird song or the call of a lion? The audience at a musical is dancing in their hearts.

Marsha Norman

I was in Australia in 1983 and did a stunt in a lion’s cage.

Tiny Tim

I first read ‘The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe’ when I was a kid. And I think it was read to me. Me and my sister both had a copy and loved the books.

Will Poulter

In first grade, I told my friends I had a third story in my house filled with jewels and lions.

Kendall Jenner

I spent a lot of my life – 20 years of it – in war, training army trackers and commanding a tracker unit, and then in the Game Department, tracking lions and elephants and poachers. So I’ve spent literally thousands of hours tracking people or animals, and training others to do it.

Allan Savory

My first day at MGM they decided to bring this lion out, male, and it was not the best time for him to see me. All of a sudden he thought I was in heat and this lion went into the dressing room, which was just a trailer on the sound stage, and went crazy.

Kim Novak

I like vampires, tuberculosis, anything to do with blood. Then I read a biography of Rasputin and found out he’d had this daughter who had become a famous lion tamer and been billed as the daughter of the mad monk who was able to hypnotize animals with her eyes. It gave me a vision.

Kathryn Harrison

On behalf of the entire Lionsgate team, it is a tremendous honor and deeply humbling to join the elite group of recipients previously honored with the Milestone Award.

Jon Feltheimer

We have a lion, tiger, liger, which is the father is a lion and the mother is a tiger, black and spotted leopard, mountain lion, Asian leopard cats. Weve got a tremendous number of the exotic feline.

Tippi Hedren

I saw my first two Broadway shows when I was 4 years old, ‘The Lion King’ and ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ and after both of them I came home and reenacted the entirety of the shows on my living room table for my family and friends. I started doing that after every show I saw until I actually did my first youth production when I was 5.

Max Schneider

There is no comparison. The American landscape is so much more dangerous. They have real snakes, mountain lions, bears; we only have adders, and they’re more frightened of us than we are of them.

Jim Crace

Some people lose all respect for the lion unless he devours them instantly. There is no pleasing some people.

Will Cuppy

Whenever the lion fish in the fish tank in the captain’s ready room died it was always a sad moment.

Patrick Stewart

A truly strong person does not need the approval of others any more than a lion needs the approval of sheep.

Vernon Howard

The lion is, however, rarely heard – much more seldom seen.

John Hanning Speke

When General Allenby conquered Jerusalem during World War I, he was hailed in the American press as Richard the Lion-Hearted, who had at last won the Crusades and driven the pagans out of the Holy Land.

Noam Chomsky

I’ve eaten lion, leopard, crocodile, python. I don’t recommend lion. It tastes exactly like when a tomcat comes into your house and sprays. Snake and crocodile are great – a cross between lobster and chicken.

Wilbur Smith

Courage is poorly housed that dwells in numbers; the lion never counts the herd that are about him, nor weighs how many flocks he has to scatter.

Aaron Hill

I came back from university thinking I knew all about politics and racism, not knowing my dad had been one of the youngest-serving Labour councillors in the town and had refused to work in South Africa years ago because of the situation there. And he’s never mentioned it – you just find out. That’s a real man to me. A sleeping lion.

Johnny Vegas

Fear not, we are of the nature of the lion, and cannot descend to the destruction of mice and such small beasts.

Elizabeth I

I’ve always had the hair of Lionel Ritchie since I was a boy, but the mullet sadly is a hairpiece. My wife won’t let me rock that hairstyle.

Danny McBride

In boxing, it is about the obsession of getting the most from yourself: wanting to dominate the world like a hungry young lion.

Anthony Joshua

After World War II, scientific research in the U.S. was well supported. In the 1960s, when I came to America, the sky was the limit, and this conducive atmosphere enabled many of us to pursue esoteric research that resulted in America winning the lion’s share of Nobel Prizes.

Ahmed Zewail

I remember in the circus learning that the clown was the prince, the high prince. I always thought that the high prince was the lion or the magician, but the clown is the most important.

Roberto Benigni

The lion and the calf shall lie down together but the calf won’t get much sleep.

Woody Allen

I can’t see myself leaving the club I grew up supporting… it’s one of those things, the money’s great but I still get paid reasonably well from the Lions and at the end of the day I think job satisfaction is the No.1 priority and I just love it up here.

Jonathan Brown

You know, I am a Leo. Lion is a giant part of me.

Patrick Swayze

There is something really mysterious about lions. They could rip you apart if they wanted to, but at the same time they look so cuddly. Can you imagine what humans look like to animals? They must think we’re so weird.

Lee Ryan

An optimist is someone who gets treed by a lion but enjoys the scenery.

Walter Winchell

We had a lion that was living in somebody’s basement outside of Branson, Missouri.

Tippi Hedren

At twenty a man is a peacock, at thirty a lion, at forty a camel, at fifty a serpent, at sixty a dog, at seventy an ape, at eighty a nothing at all.

Baltasar Gracian

If you’re a girl, you’re always Daddy’s little girl. You’re vulnerable, no matter how worldly or sophisticated or strong you’d become along the way. My dad Lionel let me know how proud he was, even as he kept me from being too big for my britches.

Donna Brazile

The 2001 tour to Australia would have been a great highlight in my career if the Lions had won the series. That might sound strange because it was a great tour in many ways, but, for me, the more time goes by, the less of a career highlight it becomes, and just more of a frustration.

Brian O’Driscoll

My mum loves cats so I took her to see the lion cubs which at about a year old are actually quite big. She wasn’t scared at all and went straight over and kissed one on the mouth! She thought they were just like her pets at home.

Amanda Holden

What happens when you take a lion out of the safari and try to take him to your place of residence and make him a house pet? It ain’t going to happen. That’s the type of person that I am. I’m that lion.

Cam Newton

The real power of the Buddha was that he had so much love. He saw people trapped in their notions of small separate self, feeling guilty or proud of that self, and he offered revolutionary teachings that resounded like a lion’s roar, like a great rising tide, helping people to wake up and break free from the prison of ignorance.

Nhat Hanh

It’s not about being thin, it’s about being healthy. And when you are a child you like to eat all these unhealthy things like chocolate and sweets. Oh my God. I love strawberries dipped in chocolate and Lion bars and Toffee Crisps – and as you grow up, you have to learn that those things are only good in moderation or you will become very fat.

Dionne Bromfield

I was just so excited to have a child! I held him up like he was Simba in ‘The Lion King.’ I wanted to sing ‘The Circle of Life.’

Aaron Lazar

I would rather be the tail of a lion than the head of a mouse.

Daddy Yankee

I wish my teammates, coaches and the entire Lions organization all the best.

Barry Sanders

My first recording, a guy came down to Philadelphia and heard me play and he introduced me to Alfred Lion.

Jimmy Smith

It’s fun to just get out there and have a nice conversation when I’m running. To be honest, when I do longer runs, the trail that I like to run up in Malibu has mountain lions, so I always feel I want to run with someone else.

Flea

I’m not a very violent dude, and if something can be settled without any physicality, I’m always in favor of that. But if somebody comes near my kids, the atavistic crazy lion comes out.

Stephen Moyer

I learned to be a hot-air balloon pilot to take tourists over the Masai Mara Reserve in order to earn some money and finance the work I was doing with my wife, Anne. We were studying the life of a family of lions for more than two years. Taking pictures was a way to capture information we could not put in words.

Yann Arthus-Bertrand

I grew up in a small hotel with many rooms, so when I became aware of ‘The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe,’ I inspected all the wardrobes, sure one had to be a portal to another world. I was also a true believer in faeries, and perhaps still am.

Jo Beverley

I’m sure back in the Greek days or the Roman Empire days, when guys fought in arenas and were fighting lions, people were talking smack. Every era in history has someone talking smack. No way you can have talent and not proclaim your victory.

J. B. Smoove

When people talk about South Africa, it’s all about lions and elephants. But when we talk about India, we talk about tigers.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni

I have always liked lionesses. Female lions have always seemed like the best. They were really strong and took care of their babies and are beautiful.

Brooke Shields

I’ve always known what I’ve wanted, but I used to be shy about expressing that in regards to my career. So I’ve become a lioness. If something’s happening that I don’t necessarily feel comfortable about, I will speak my mind. Or if I want to do something, I go for it.

Tia Mowry

My number one inspiration was my mother. She worked two jobs and had breakfast and dinner prepared. I essentially called my mother, The Lion. She’s fierce and she’s proud. I’d like to think some of that rubbed off on me.

Christopher Judge

But if cattle and horses or lions had hands, or were able to draw with their hands and do the work that men can do, horses would draw the forms of the gods like horses, and cattle like cattle, and they would make their bodies such as they each had themselves.

Xenophanes

As far as a nuclear weapons-free zone, you know, when the lion lies down with the lamb, and you don’t need a new lamb every day to satisfy the lion, then we might have this kind of transformation in the Middle East.

Benjamin Netanyahu

In every advanced mammalian species that survives and thrives, a common anthropological characteristic is the fierce behavior of the adult female of the species when she senses a threat to her cubs. The lioness, the tigress and the mama bear are all examples.

Marianne Williamson

I have this huge lion tattoo embossed on my arm. I was a little worried as to how we would cover it up. But my makeup man covered the tattoo with makeup. It took close to two hours.

Sanjay Dutt

Shall we, who have laid the proud British lion at our feet, now be afraid of his whelps?

Patrick Henry

Eyeliner is a go-to for me, and gold has always been a color that I really like. It’s reminiscent of a lion; it’s a strong color.

Jillian Hervey

Don’t ask who’s influenced me. A lion is made up of the lambs he’s digested, and I’ve been reading all my life.

Giorgos Seferis

Didn’t Lionel Richie just make a country album? No one is giving him a hard time… and God bless him – I love Lionel and should be able to do what he wants to do, like Madonna should, too. Both are having success and I applaud them. If you don’t like it, don’t buy it. The ageism criticism is getting old.

Guy Oseary

I went with Lionel Hampton for three years. Out of that came a trip to Europe.

Quincy Jones

I am an employment hyena. I am happy to make a meal of what the lions leave behind.

Henry Rollins

Right now I’m looking at a liger out my bedroom window. He’s half lion and half tiger. And he’s absolutely beautiful. His name is Patrick.

Tippi Hedren

This first print run of the first edition of my first novel, ‘When The Lion Feeds.’ back in 1964, is so rare it can fetch several thousand pounds at auction. I always wanted to be an author, and I decided to write about what I knew.

Wilbur Smith

Pantelion and Televisa can reach my core fan base better than anyone, and with the distribution expertise and brand recognition of Lionsgate, I know we can build on the crossover audience that we began to reach with ‘Instructions.’

Eugenio Derbez

I grew a love for helpless, defenseless things. People would give me lions and jaguars. I had cheetahs, monkeys.

Dick Dale

The San Gabriel Mountains rise like a rampart at the edge of the city, safeguarding more than 500,000 acres of mature forests, mountain streams, dramatic waterfalls, and towering peaks that reach over 9,000 feet. These untamed places attract bighorn sheep, mountain lions, and other threatened or endangered species.

Frances Beinecke

Only in art will the lion lie down with the lamb, and the rose grow without thorn.

Martin Amis

At a certain point, even if the one alpha male is dominant, at a certain point there’s a younger lion that is stronger, and everyone knows it.

Josh Lucas

I went through quite a few establishments that maybe weren’t great for myself – security units, youth-offender places. I guess that was going to the lions’ den. Social services said, ‘You’ve got to go to some sort of school.’

King Krule

No other creatures of the savannah sleep as deeply or as soundly as lions, but after all, lions are the main reason for not sleeping soundly.

Elizabeth Marshall Thomas

In my movies, there has been little to do in the way of animal rights. I have never worked in a movie with animals. No horse-riding, no trained dogs, lions, bears. A few actors, but what could I do? We had to have them.

Casey Affleck

I grew up watching Pixar movies. And my favourite – if you don’t count ‘The Good Dinosaur’ – is the first Pixar movie my older brother showed me. That would be ‘Monsters, Inc.’ I also like Disney – ‘The Lion King’ is probably my all-time favourite movie.

Raymond Ochoa

After The Wizard Of Oz I was typecast as a lion, and there aren’t all that many parts for lions.

Bert Lahr

I think if you look back at the lead singers that left groups that didn’t make it, you’ll see that a lot of them were songwriters like Lionel Richie. I mean, they were able to control their own destiny.

Jeffrey Osborne

One time, I got to go play with lion cubs in Johannesburg. It was amazing. But it’s difficult when you’re on the road. We’re always playing tennis, and there’s a lot of pressure. So sometimes you don’t get to do the things you’d like to do, because the priority is tennis.

Milos Raonic

The reason advertising is governed by fear, after all, is that most agencies rely on just a few clients to bring in the lion’s share of their revenues.

James Surowiecki

Though every nation must do its part to address climate change, developed nations are responsible for the lion’s share of carbon pollution in the atmosphere, and they have an obligation to help developing nations transition to a sustainable future.

Frances Beinecke

When I was thinking about The Lion King, I said, we have to do what theater does best. What theater does best is to be abstract and not to do literal reality.

Julie Taymor

I would love to go into an animal’s dream – like a lion’s or a cat’s. I’m sure that’s pretty awesome.

Marion Cotillard

Do I believe in arbitration? I do. But not in arbitration between the lion and the lamb, in which the lamb is in the morning found inside the lion.

Samuel Gompers

To be honest, I’m in love with denim. It hasn’t been my go-to Lion Babe look, but it’s very much my ‘everyday Jillian look.’ I am in denim every single day.

Jillian Hervey

I’ve done the Kennedy Center many times. I’ve sang for Marian Anderson. I’ve sang for Marion Williams. I’ve sang for Lionel Hampton.

Aretha Franklin

To achieve the mood of a warrior is not a simple matter. It is a revolution. To regard the lion and the water rats and our fellow men as equals is a magnificent act of a warrior’s spirit. It takes power to do that.

Carlos Castaneda

I always have my journal with me. It was handmade by a guy at the San Telmo market in Buenos Aires. If you go there he can make you one. It’s leather and bronze and I’m able to replace the paper when it runs out. It has a lion on the cover that I say is there to protect my thoughts.

Blake Mycoskie

I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; I am afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion.

Alexander the Great

As far as heroes thorough the years, I’d say definitely Alabama and Randy Owen, Conway Twitty was a big influence of mine, George Strait, Lionel Richie.

Luke Bryan

I love Africa, and Ulusaba, our home in South Africa, is pretty special. It’s on a rocky hill overlooking the bush, and from your room, you can see lions stalking zebras by the waterhole.

Richard Branson

If cattle and horses, or lions, had hands, or were able to draw with their feet and produce the works which men do, horses would draw the forms of gods like horses, and cattle like cattle, and they would make the gods’ bodies the same shape as their own.

Xenophanes

I don’t mind going into a liberal lion’s den. That’s where you test yourself.

Charles Krauthammer

I am more afraid of an army of 100 sheep led by a lion than an army of 100 lions led by a sheep.

Charles Maurice de Talleyrand

Of course my uncle was a giant, but my dad, in particular, had the house filled with these great Dixieland jazz stars, really the best of them: Henry Red Allen, Willie ‘The Lion’ Smith, Buster Bailey, Cutty Cutshall, Tyree Glenn, Zutty Singleton. These are all big names in the Dixieland world.

Billy Crystal

With each new day in Africa, a gazelle wakes up knowing he must outrun the fastest lion or perish. At the same time, a lion stirs and stretches, knowing he must outrun the fastest gazelle or starve. It’s no different for the human race. Whether you consider yourself a gazelle or a lion, you have to run faster than others to survive.

Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum

You may as well say, ‘That’s a valiant flea that dare eat his breakfast on the lip of a lion.

William Tecumseh Sherman

I remember watching Barry Sanders highlights as a kid, and the Lions always being a fun team. I, personally, really never had a real negative connotation with the team. And I didn’t really listen to those who did after I was drafted.

Ndamukong Suh

That was my one big Hollywood hit, but, in a way, it hurt my picture career. After that, I was typecast as a lion, and there just weren’t many parts for lions.

Bert Lahr

I was the shyest human ever invented, but I had a lion inside me that wouldn’t shut up!

Ingrid Bergman

I really enjoyed staying at an encampment at the top of a hill in the Samburu Reserve in Kenya. You reach it on a small plane; there is no electricity, no city noises and you sleep and shower under the Milky Way, with moths fluttering around a kerosene lamp, knowing that there are elephants and lions roaming free in the valley.

Cherie Lunghi

Cat: a pygmy lion who loves mice, hates dogs, and patronizes human beings.

Oliver Herford

When many work together for a goal, Great things may be accomplished. It is said a lion cub was killed By a single colony of ants.

Saskya Pandita

As my early drawings warned me, where humans go, lions and tidal waves follow.

Wally Lamb

I never thought much of the courage of a lion tamer. Inside the cage he is at least safe from people.

George Bernard Shaw

Justice Scalia was a lion of the law. Agree or disagree with him, all of his colleagues on the bench shared his wisdom and his humor. And like them, I miss him.

Neil Gorsuch

New York is really the place to be; to go to New York, you’re going to the center of the world, the lion’s den.

Zubin Mehta

I quit because I didn’t feel like the Detroit Lions had a chance to win. It just killed my enjoyment of the game.

Barry Sanders

Mushrooms provide a vast array of potential medicinal compounds. Many mushrooms – such as portobello, oyster, reishi and maitake – are well-known for these properties, but the lion’s mane mushroom, in particular, has drawn the attention of researchers for its notable nerve-regenerative properties.

Paul Stamets

The SEC got more than 100 rules to write under Dodd-Frank, the lion’s share of all the agencies. And we’ve moved, I think, with a tremendous sense of urgency. But it takes a long time to write rules and get them approved by a five-member commission.

Mary Schapiro

A lion runs the fastest when he is hungry.

Salman Khan

Only in art will the lion lie down with the lamb, and the rose grow without the thorn.

Martin Amis

Human beings are a social species. We like to hang together in groups, just like wildebeests, just like lions. Wildebeests don’t hang with lions because lions eat wildebeests. Human beings are like that. We do what that group does that we’re trying to identify with.

Dan Phillips

I am sometimes a fox and sometimes a lion. The whole secret of government lies in knowing when to be the one or the other.

Napoleon Bonaparte

The severity of punishments ought to be relative to the state of the nation itself. Stronger and more easily felt impressions have to be made on a people only just out of the savage state. A lightning strike is needed to stop a fierce lion who is provoked by a gunshot.

Cesare Beccaria

The Christians had a better chance against the lions than the American consumer has against the OPEC cartel.

Ed Markey

The one excellent thing that can be learned from a lion is that whatever a man intends doing should be done by him with a whole-hearted and strenuous effort.

Chanakya

There hasn’t been this much excitement since the Romans fed the Christians to the Lions.

Sid Waddell

If you could cross a lion and a monkey, that’s what I’d be, because monkeys are funny and lions are strong.

Marlon Wayans

I carry around this little lion named Leo, which I’ve had for as long as I can remember.

Shawn Mendes

You know you’re going to have a good day when your morning begins with breakfast in the same room as Carrie Tiffany, David Vann and Lionel Shriver.

Hannah Kent

Tyria’s a big world. We get a grand tour in ‘Ghosts of Ascalon.’ We’re in Divinity’s Reach, we’re in Lion’s Arch, we’re in Ebonhawke, we’re in the Dragon’s Land, we’re in Ascalon. We’re basically hitting a lot of the major human and charr locations.

Jeff Grubb

Those who are preparing for the coming of Christ should be sober, and watch unto prayer, for our adversary, the Devil, goeth about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour; whom we are to resist steadfast in the faith.

Ellen G. White

I’ve always loved history, from my youngest memories. My father enjoyed the great stories of history, like Hereward the Wake, Robin Hood, and Richard the Lionheart, and he shared them with me. I went on to do a degree in history, though I found it rather dry, because it was mostly about politics rather than dashing individuals!

Jo Beverley

I loved making ‘The Hunger Games’ – it was the happiest experience of my professional life. Lionsgate was supportive of me in a manner that few directors ever experience in a franchise: they empowered me to make the film I wanted to make and backed the movie in a way that requires no explanation beyond the remarkable results.

Gary Ross

Our logo for Lanvin is a mother and a daughter. I’ve always said, ‘It’s not a lion, and it’s not a horse. It’s a mother and a daughter.’ I find the logo very emotional.

Alber Elbaz

Neurotics complain of their illness, but they make the most of it, and when it comes to talking it away from them they will defend it like a lioness her young.

Sigmund Freud

There’s an expression in Persian, ‘to play with the lion’s tail.’ I wasn’t what Iranian society wanted me to be – a good girl. I played with the lion’s tail.

Golshifteh Farahani

Madison Square Garden, November 1984. I don’t recall taking too much fear into the ring. I knew I could fight. But I got a big shock. They put me in with this rough, tough veteran called Lionel Byarm. He tested me to the limit. But I fought my heart out and, in the end, I prevailed. The story of my life, in my very first fight.

Evander Holyfield

I was a creative player, but I got some bad injuries early on and I decided that if this was a jungle we were playing in then it’s better to be a lion than a lamb.

Johnny Giles

Anyone who thinks hunters are just ‘bloodthirsty morons’ hasn’t looked into hunting. If you wait through long, cold hours in the November woods with a bow in your hands hoping a buck will show, or if you spend days walking in the African bush trailing Cape buffalo while listening to lions roar, you’re sure to learn hunting isn’t about killing.

Donald Trump, Jr.

I had pro offers from the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers, who were pretty hard up for linemen in those days. If I had gone into professional football the name Jerry Ford might have been a household word today.

Gerald R. Ford

Yep, I’ll stay a Brisbane Lion, you’ve heard it first.

Jonathan Brown

I’ve eaten sheep’s eyes, the still hot meat from a zebra killed by a lion, and maggots which give you 70 calories to the ounce.

Bear Grylls

I’ve loved musicals ever since I saw ‘The Lion King’ on Broadway.

Mark Indelicato

An Englishman, being flattered, is a lamb; threatened, a lion.

George Chapman

I’m not good at being lionized, and when I’m in ‘Grateful Dead’-type situations, that happens.

Robert Hunter

Once again the mastermind was Lionel Curtis, and the earlier Round Table Groups and Institutes of International Affairs were used as nuclei for the new network.

Carroll Quigley

Teddy Kennedy rose to become a liberal lion by collaborating with Republicans.

Juan Williams

He that loves not his wife and children feeds a lioness at home, and broods a nest of sorrows.

Jeremy Taylor

I remember myself as an asthmatic child, having great difficulties at 7, 8 and 9 years old, falling totally in love with ‘Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle’ and dreaming of having his strength to leap into trees and throw mighty lions to the ground.

Gene Roddenberry

You go into the Lions camp with preconceived ideas about players and teams and then find guys are actually very different, and the beauty of the Lions is that all those characters are moulded into it. I find that exciting.

Brian O’Driscoll

I wanted to be a scientist. I did a thesis on lions. But I realised photography can show things writing can’t. Lions were my professor of photography.

Yann Arthus-Bertrand

It was a wonderful experience to play in the NFL, and I have no regrets. I truly will miss playing for the Lions. I consider the Lions’ players, coaches, staff, management and fans my family. I leave on good terms with everyone in the organization.

Barry Sanders

Even when I went to the Lion’s Head in the Village, where all you journalists would hang out, I was always peripheral. I was never really part of anything except the classroom. That’s where I belonged.

Frank McCourt

I used to love ‘The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe,’ and I can still remember listening to them before I would fall asleep. I can remember the first ten minutes of the book perfectly, but whether I knew the rest of it was slightly more dicey.

William Moseley

All species capable of grasping this fact manage better in the struggle for existence than those which rely upon their own strength alone: the wolf, which hunts in a pack, has a greater chance of survival than the lion, which hunts alone.

Christian Lous Lange

Seeing the actual ‘The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe’, I absolutely loved it. It became one of my favourite films. It was a real Christmas classic, and it was one of the most popular films ever in British history.

Will Poulter

The difference between great actors and the rest of us isn’t simply that they know how to make more out of less, but that, like lions at the watering hole, they will always take more than their share from the pool of available resources – extra air from the room, added knowledge from our faces.

John Burnham Schwartz

Don’t ask me who’s influenced me. A lion is made up of the lambs he’s digested, and I’ve been reading all my life.

Charles de Gaulle

Instead of being lionized and admired for her genius, instead of being able to earn a decent living as a writer, Andrea Dworkin was misrepresented and demonized.

Catharine MacKinnon

To say I have played through four World Cups, two Lions tours, 91 international games and a ridiculous number of injuries and other setbacks gives me an incredibly special feeling of fulfilment. I know myself well enough to know that I will never truly be satisfied.

Jonny Wilkinson

There has to be some limit to what lawyers can take from their clients. Otherwise, cagey attorneys end up with the lion’s share of the settlement and the victims end up with little more than scraps.

Dennis Hastert

For us in Russia, communism is a dead dog, while, for many people in the West, it is still a living lion.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Jerry Springer’ is just kind of the chubby, redneck version of throwing Christians to the lions.

Hal Sparks

Roused by the lash of his own stubborn tail our lion now will foreign foes assail.

John Dryden

Have you recently been through a challenge, disappointment, break up or disloyalty with somebody in your life? If so, it’s important after you’ve been hurt, to take some time to think like a lion tamer about your pain, so you can tame the possibility of more negativity coming back to bite you again!

Karen Salmansohn

When I was 15, I went on a cricket tour of Zimbabwe with my school. My defining memory of it was stroking a semi-tame lioness at a game reserve. I grew up on a farm, so I felt I had an affinity with animals, and when it put a paw out, I thought I’d connected with it. But its claws came out and nicked my leg. Then I did the most stupid thing: I ran.

Rupert Evans

A lion is called a ‘king of beasts’ obviously for a reason.

Jack Hanna

I have never been a social lion; I was misidentified as one because I have a very attractive second wife.

John Gutfreund

Working on a film, you don’t get time to develop rivalries, but the theatre is like a little village, and the differences between me, Lionel and Georgia grew.

Ron Moody

It’s better to be a lion for a day than a sheep all your life.

Elizabeth Kenny

I was once, I think, bitten on the nose by a lion cub.

Newt Gingrich

I’m a mother lion when it comes to protecting my children.

Joanna Cassidy

These are the animals that are the reason why you don’t see old animals in the wild. You don’t see sick animals in the wild. You don’t see lame animals in the wild, and its all because of the predator: the lion, the tiger, the leopard, all the cats.

Tippi Hedren

Dressed in the lion’s skin, the ass spread terror far and wide.

Jean de La Fontaine

When I first started Lion Babe, I wore a lot of denim to perform in because I had a limited closet. A lot of the time, I was in cutoff shorts – either dark or light denim – and then I would pair them with whatever top I had.

Jillian Hervey

I can’t ignore what I grew up listening to. My parents used to listen to Michael Jackson non-stop. They used to listen to Luther Vandross, Lionel Richie, Stevie Wonder.

Fleur East

It is better to have a lion at the head of an army of sheep, than a sheep at the head of an army of lions.

Daniel Defoe

One lion thinks it’s just hilarious to tackle us. He’s very funny about it… and we always know when it will happen.

Tippi Hedren

I’m for conservation, but it’s mostly a con. That’s the trouble. It’s sentimental. Buy an elephant a drink, a lion an acre.

Peter Beard

James Taylor may be an all-American boy but he isn’t Horatio Alger, and the lionizing of many rock stars by the rock press has as much to do with old fashioned rags-to-riches stories as does the straight culture’s deification of its idols.

Jon Landau

There’s more depth to Lionel. What I am finding so interesting about playing him is there’s all these different layers. I prefer playing Lionel because he’s a human being.

John Glover

Everything that I love is behind those gates. We have elephants, and giraffes, and crocodiles, and every kind of tigers and lions. And – and we have bus loads of kids, who don’t get to see those things. They come up sick children, and enjoy it.

Michael Jackson

People speak of the fear of the blank canvas as though it is a temporary hesitation, a trembling moment of self-doubt. For me it was more like being abducted from my bed by a clown, thrust into a circus arena with a wicker chair, and told to tame a pissed-off lion in front of an expectant crowd.

Hannah Kent

It was the nation and the race dwelling all round the globe that had the lion’s heart. I had the luck to be called upon to give the roar.

Winston Churchill

For the women in California, they’re just downtrodden because they’re so gorgeous here. Every hot cheerleader comes to California to make it. The men don’t want to get married, they’re lazy lions. Matthew McConaughey is their poster boy so they can procreate and live on the beach in the trailer and have kids and have money and be hedonistic.

Patti Stanger

‘The Lion’ all began with a picture of a faun carrying an umbrella and parcels in a snowy wood. This picture had been in my mind since I was about sixteen. Then one day, when I was about forty, I said to myself, ‘Let’s try to make a story about it.’

C. S. Lewis

Under the Dodd-Frank law, the SEC got the lion’s share of the rules to write, more than 100 rules, and we have done an extraordinary amount of that. Eighty percent have been either proposed or adopted. So, a lot, a lot accomplished but of course, more to do.

Mary Schapiro

Everybody in my band is a lion, and everyone’s mastered their own domain… And we have a platform, and we have built it painstakingly and punched ourselves in the face every way we could to get where we are.

Zac Brown

My father died when I was young, and my mother, Ruth, went to work in an office selling theater and movie parties. She put me through private school, Horace Mann, in Riverdale. She sent me to camp so that I would learn to compete. She was a lioness, and I was her cub.

Alan Furst

The Lion King always makes me cry, especially when Simba’s father gets trampled.

Vanessa Hudgens

The spirit of L.A. is untamed wilderness. It’s earthquakes and wildfires and oceans and mountain lions and fog. There’s great physical beauty.

Dan Gilroy

We are all vegetarians here, and except for a mountain lion that’s been hanging around and killed our dog, we don’t have a care in the world.

Dirk Benedict

330 Famous Friendship Quotes 2020 Collection [Part 1]

Your experiences will be yours alone. But truth and best friendship will rarely if ever disappoint you.

Anne Lamott

One of the most mawkish of human delusions is the notion that friendship should be eternal, or, at all events, life-long, and that any act which puts a term to it is somehow discreditable.

I would like to raise my glass to friendship between Russia and the United States.

Bradley Chicho

Business, you know, may bring you money, but friendship hardly ever does.

Jane Austen

I’m interested in female friendships and family relationships. So I don’t write the traditional romance, where you just have the hero and the heroine’s love story. I like intertwining relationships.

Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Plunderous is the palate I gift to you, openly I hug the universe of our friendship expanding its outer limit.

Bradley Chicho

Because most people are not sufficiently employed in themselves, they run about loose, hungering for employment, and satisfy themselves in various supererogatory occupations. The easiest of these occupations, which have all to do with making things already made, is the making of people: it is called the art of friendship.

Laura Riding

‘Mistresses’ is about the lives of four women, each going through different versions of infidelity. Their longtime friendship is what gets them through extremely challenging times.

‘Shake It Up’ definitely teaches kids about the importance of reaching for your dreams and setting high goals. It also teaches great lessons about friendship and family.

Zendaya

In our friendships we have to be wise that we choose godly people to be our friends. Somebody might say, well does that mean that you should never have a lost person as your friend? No, I wouldn’t say that. But you can’t have the same intimacy with a lost person that you can with a godly person in whom the Holy Spirit is living.

Charles Stanley

My aim is to create a happy society with genuine friendship. Friendship between Tibetan and Chinese peoples is very essential.

Ernie Banks

It is important to our friends to believe that we are unreservedly frank with them, and important to friendship that we are not.

Mignon McLaughlin

The solution as consumers is – perhaps surprisingly – to take adverts very, very seriously. We should ask ourselves what it is that we find lovely in them – the visions of friendship, togetherness, repose, or whatever. And then consider what would actually help us find these qualities in our lives.

Alain de Botton

And we want to develop our strategy to partnership and friendship with the United States, which is connected with a very rich history but what is very important for our future.

Muhammad Ali

Some of the choicest blessings of my life have been the close friendships I have experienced over the years. Often, these friendships have been forged in the fires of shared experience.

The two most misused words in the entire English vocabulary are love and friendship. A true friend would die for you, so when you start trying to count them on one hand, you don’t need any fingers.

Larry Flynt

Between men and women there is no friendship possible. There is passion, enmity, worship, love, but no friendship.

Oscar Wilde

I love ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ and ‘Extras’ and also ‘The Trip.’ That had all the nuances of friendship and finding things out about their lives without it being too much plot-driven.

Dolly Wells

Taft was Roosevelt’s handpicked successor. I didn’t know how deep the friendship was between the two men until I read their almost four hundred letters, stretching back the to early ’30s. It made me realize the heartbreak when they ruptured was much more than a political division.

Doris Kearns Goodwin

Always admit when you’re wrong. You’ll save thousands in therapy… and a few friendships too.

A quarrel between friends, when made up, adds a new tie to friendship.

Saint Francis de Sales

When the world is so complicated, the simple gift of friendship is within all of our hands.

Tina Fey

No doubt, the most important thing in my career was my time with Mr. Bergman, with whom I worked in so many films and also in so many stage productions, so it was a continuous working relationship and also a friendship, of course, that lasted for so many years.

Max von Sydow

Believe it or not, friendships are difficult to write in fiction. They can easily come across as forced, particularly if they involve too much explication and too many overt gestures of affection.

Steven Erikson

Accountability in friendship is the equivalent of love without strategy.

Anita Brookner

Let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit.

Khalil Gibran

I think all women have a friend who at some point dumped them or betrayed them or deeply disappointed them. And at the same time all women have a friend who they dumped or betrayed or hurt in some way. That’s universal in women’s friendships.

Lisa See

There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.

Thomas Aquinas

Generally, social networking sites can be hugely promising and beneficial in opening new friendships and vistas and knowledge of the world, but they are also fraught with peril, when young people are reckless or headless.

Richard Blumenthal

Why do you think so many actors are only half-developed people? It’s very easy when you’re a young actor to have these intense, explosive friendships for short periods of time, because you can control what’s shown of you. Then you go on to your next job and reinvent yourself again. I think it’s important to find something constant.

Damian Lewis

My friendships and relationships in the conservative world are not predicated on political correctness and enforced conformity of thought. They are based, instead, on mutual respect, honesty and understanding – concepts many modern liberals should consider revisiting.

Tammy Bruce

Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity.

Khalil Gibran

In politics shared hatreds are almost always the basis of friendships.

Niall Ferguson

I have friends in overalls whose friendship I would not swap for the favor of the kings of the world.

Martin Freeman

When Ted Williams was here, inducted into the Hall of Fame 37 years ago, he said he must have earned it, because he didn’t win it because of his friendship with the writers. I guess in that way, I’m proud to be in this company that way.

Eddie Murray

While I am grateful for the friendships and relationships that I have with my Republican colleagues, it would be naive to pretend that those friendships will change the way that major policies are enacted in Arizona.

Kyrsten Sinema

A friend is a beloved mystery; dearest always because he is not ourself, and has something in him which it is impossible for us to fathom. If it were not so, friendship would lose its chief zest.

Lucy Larcom

There has to be chemistry in a duet, but if you go beyond the point of friendship and attraction, you lose something.

Mencius

I’m really excited that ‘The Other Woman’ did so well at the box office, and I hope that will keep encouraging people to make movies about women, starring women, about female friendships. More. Please.

Show me a genuine case of platonic friendship, and I shall show you two old or homely faces.

Friendship improves happiness and abates misery, by the doubling of our joy and the dividing of our grief.

Rock n’ roll as a genre is different from pop and hip hop: it is about bands, and that for me suggests brotherhood, family, friendship and community.

Steven Van Zandt

The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love.

Hubert H. Humphrey

The language of friendship is not words but meanings.

J. Donald Walters

Friendship is a plant of slow growth and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.

Thomas Bailey Aldrich

My writing partner, Nicki, and I became obsessed with a monologist who performs unscripted shows equipped with nothing more than scribbled bullet points and a glass of water. We wrote him a fan letter and found ourselves sharing lunch and eventually a friendship.

Emma McLaughlin

I was interested about how relationships change as you get older. You are great friends in your 20s. In your 30s, you get married. Your 40s are all about your kids. In your 50s, you get divorced, and your friendships become primary again.

Hanya Yanagihara

My life isn’t focused on results. My life is really focused on the process of doing all the things I’m doing, from work to relationships to friendships to charitable work.

George Clooney

George Herbert

Friendship! Mysterious cement of the soul, Sweet’ner of life, and solder of society.

November 11, 1802, I arrived at Judge Patterson’s at Lisle. This respectable family treated me with every mark of distinction and friendship, and likewise all the people did the same. I really want for words to express my gratitude.

Deborah Sampson

I love the fact that so many of my readers are intelligent, exceptional, accomplished people with an open-minded love of diversity. But even more than that, I love it when my readers find lasting friendship with others of my readers – knowing that they met through their mutual affection for my books and characters makes me happy!

Suzanne Brockmann

My parents, and librarians along the way, taught me about the space between words; about the margins, where so many juicy moments of life and spirit and friendship could be found. In a library, you could find miracles and truth and you might find something that would make you laugh so hard that you get shushed, in the friendliest way.

Anne Lamott

Love, friendship and respect do not unite people as much as a common hatred for something.

Paloma Faith

Aristotle uses a mother’s love for her child as the prime example of love or friendship.

Mary Lincoln provided Elizabeth Keckley with opportunities for social and economic advancement she probably had never imagined during her years as a slave, while Elizabeth offered Mary the loyal, steadfast friendship she craved but had always found so elusive.

Jennifer Chiaverini

False friendship, like the ivy, decays and ruins the walls it embraces; but true friendship gives new life and animation to the object it supports.

Richard Burton

‘Safe Harbor’ is a state of mind… it’s the place – in reality or metaphor – to which one goes in times of trouble or worry. It can be a friendship, marriage, church, garden, beach, poem, prayer, or song.

Luanne Rice

I have a couple of best friends, and I don’t think I would live with them. It definitely… certain people can’t live together, and I think that it could potentially put a lot of strain on the relationship or friendship.

Alexandra Chando

One of the surest evidences of friendship that one individual can display to another is telling him gently of a fault. If any other can excel it, it is listening to such a disclosure with gratitude, and amending the error.

Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

The dupe of friendship, and the fool of love; have I not reason to hate and to despise myself? Indeed I do; and chiefly for not having hated and despised the world enough.

William Hazlitt

Robert Staughton Lynd

Bad faith likes discourse on friendship and loyalty.

Mason Cooley

When I turned about 14, I developed a friendship with this guy whose mom was the secretary to Ernest Angley, the faith healer, who’s very popular in the Midwest. He had a television show, and he was sort of like Liberace mixed with Jerry Falwell – very glitzy, very high-tech.

Marilyn Manson

If we are to judge of love by its consequences, it more nearly resembles hatred than friendship.

Francois de La Rochefoucauld

The part which American friendship played in helping us to win the freedom we enjoy in this part of Ireland has been gratefully recognized and acknowledged by our people.

Eamon de Valera

If you’re going through friendship issues, I would say, first of all take a step back. How important is the friendship to you? Sometimes, if someone’s not being a good friend to you and isn’t treating you the way you should be treated, then you kind of have to move on sometimes.

Victoria Justice

My book ‘Ali Pasha’ tells the true story of a young sailor Henry Friston, who, in the hell-fire of battle, forms an unusual friendship.

Hayao Miyazaki

The firmest of friendships have been formed in mutual adversity, as iron is most strongly united by the fiercest flame.

You can’t explain why people are friends and why those friendships last, but there certainly is magic in it. It’s just something that you treasure.

Jamie Farr

Francois Lelord

Friendship and money: oil and water.

Mario Puzo

Nothing so fortifies a friendship as a belief on the part of one friend that he is superior to the other.

Honore de Balzac

Li Keqiang

Working with people, the musical part is one thing but the personal part is totally different and just as critical. If the friendship is there and it’s a lasting friendship, then it will take care of itself.

John Mayall

It’s not too late to develop new friendships or reconnect with people.

Morrie Schwartz

Everybody understands friendship, and friendship is different than love – it’s a different kind of love. Friendship has more freedom, more latitude. You don’t expect your friend to be as you think your friend should be; you expect your friend just to love you as a friend.

Carole King

So I really did stop and change what I saw I was about, and really try to put that principle into play as the center of everything – my friendships, my marriage, my career, my family, my way of being in the world. And that changed everything for me.

Kathy Mattea

Look, I worked with American Republican presidents and Democratic presidents, all of them, and each of them has shown a deep and profound friendship to Israel, you know? I can’t remember anybody who was in that sense negative as far as Israel is concerned.

Elbert Hubbard

All lasting business is built on friendship.

Alfred A. Montapert

We have a saying in the Marine Corps and that is ‘no better friend, no worse enemy, than a U.S. Marine.’ We always hope for the first, friendship, but are certainly more than ready for the second.

John F. Kelly

With girls, friendships are hard because you have to learn to get to a maturity level to love them but not want to be them.

Nikki Reed

A youth, when at home, should be filial and, abroad, respectful to his elders. He should be earnest and truthful. He should overflow in love to all and cultivate the friendship of the good. When he has time and opportunity, after the performance of these things, he should employ them in polite studies.

Confucius

Networking is all about connecting with people. But then again, isn’t that what life is about? The more time you can find to get out of the office and build true friendships, the farther your startup will go. Entrepreneurs need to remember to spend as much time working on their business as they do in their business.

Jay Samit

I’ve got many close friends, but there’s an awful lot about friendship that is not demonstrative in my case.

Warren Christopher

The joys of friendship inert the heart and fizzy home bouncing jubilantly with laughter-buttered love.

Bradley Chicho

I think it is a good thing to have woman friends at every stage of life. We confide in each other, we support each other, we understand each other most of the time. Of course, sometimes we are competitive or angry or distant, too. But I do think it is important not to let the main friendships slip away in the sweep of the days.

Anne Roiphe

My last public performance for money was in 1967. For free, it was 1972, with the exception of two little one-shot, one-song things. But that’s just for friends, out of friendship for the people involved, and also because it was fun.

Tom Lehrer

Ours is a circle of friendships united by ideals.

Juliette Gordon Low

For me as a person, friendships are incredibly important to me, but in writing, they can distract me.

Aimee Bender

Stretching back nearly three decades, Brian Williams and I have forged an enduring friendship. It all began in 1986 at WCAU-TV in Philadelphia and has resulted in a set of noteworthy experiences, amazing successes, and a bunch of trips to NASCAR speedways.

Steve Capus

One look at an email can rob you of 15 minutes of focus. One call on your cell phone, one tweet, one instant message can destroy your schedule, forcing you to move meetings, or blow off really important things, like love, and friendship.

Jacqueline Leo

If we listened to our intellect, we’d never have a love affair. We’d never have a friendship. We’d never go into business, because we’d be cynical. Well, that’s nonsense. You’ve got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.

Ray Bradbury

I said, wouldn’t it be nice, instead of having these women fight with each other over men, which seems to be more of a cliche, wouldn’t it be wonderful if they were the true comrades and it took these men much more time to infiltrate their friendships.

Jennifer Beals

Friendships that have stood the test of time and change are surely best.

Joseph Parry

It is impossible to preserve my friendship with people who are allegedly leaders when they are attacking their own people, shooting at them, using tanks and other forms of heavy weaponry.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Friendship can only exist between persons with similar interests and points of view. Man and woman by the conventions of society are born with different interests and different points of view.

August Strindberg

One’s life has value so long as one attributes value to the life of others, by means of love, friendship, indignation and compassion.

Simone de Beauvoir

It’s easier to write from my own life, and it’s also more fun. I always write about relationships, for instance, whether they’re romantic relationships, friendships, encounters… there’s always a lesson to be learned from them.

Jason Mraz

I suppose, the natural outgrowth about writing about two friends, it becomes about their friendship, and the complexities of it, and the way personality plays off each other, and what they each like to do, separately and together.

Alison McGhee

It was good for us, I suppose. Those kinds of times produce qualities in us that make us better for having had them. My parents were not getting along. My mother was quite intolerant of friendships that were being developed.

Fay Wray

My dad’s always been a famous actor, so I’ve grown up with that, and with the lifestyle. In a way, I think I thrive on the insecurity that comes with it. Not in my private life – I like to believe that my friendships and my relationships are strong.

Alice Eve

Ray Bradbury is, for many reasons, the most influential writer in my life. Throughout our long friendship, Ray supplied not only his terrific stories but a grand model of what a writer could be, should be, and yet rarely is: brilliant and charming and accessible, willing to tolerate and to teach, happy to inspire but also to be inspired.

Greg Bear

Friends need not agree in everything or go always together, or have no comparable other friendships of the same intimacy.

George Santayana

People feel that in this industry friendships are not for real, but that’s not true. Otherwise, what is the point of being friends?

Arjun Kapoor

I don’t think men are that attracted by glamour. I think women are attracted by glamour. I think men are attracted by a sense of friendship.

Joanna Lumley

Do not keep on with a mockery of friendship after the substance is gone – but part, while you can part friends. Bury the carcass of friendship: it is not worth embalming.

William Hazlitt

My films are always concerned with family, friendship, honor, and patriotism.

John Woo

True friendship can afford true knowledge. It does not depend on darkness and ignorance.

Henry David Thoreau

John D. Rockefeller said that he found friendships based on business to be far more long lasting and profitable than the reverse. I think there’s something to that. A company can end up being very Confucian, where the good of the individual is subjugated to the good of the whole.

Ben Horowitz

Get a hobby. Maintain your friendships. Hang out with other people.

Stacey Snider

People instantly assume you can’t have a platonic friendship with someone of the opposite sex. I think this may be specific to L.A. – or America.

Isabel Lucas

But, based on my friendship with Evie as young mothers, I started going on freedom rides in 1966.

June Jordan

I only understand friendship or scorched earth.

Roger Ailes

Friendship at first sight, like love at first sight, is said to be the only truth.

Herman Melville

My second husband believed I had such a fickle attitude to friendship that each Friday he would update the list of my ‘Top Ten’ friends in the manner of a Top Of The Pops chart countdown.

Julie Burchill

Love and friendship exclude each other.

Jean de la Bruyere

Around the time I graduated from high school, I decided better to underachieve and have friendship than to overachieve and be alone.

Evangeline Lilly

When a human being becomes a set of data on a website like Facebook, he or she is reduced. Everything shrinks. Individual character. Friendships. Language. Sensibility.

Zadie Smith

I am proud to represent these men and women who empower people in developing nations and promote the Peace Corps mission of peace and friendship. These volunteers are making major strides to improve the lives of people and communities around the world.

Kenny Marchant

In closing I wish to say that while I was sorely beset by a number of white riders in my racing days, I have also enjoyed the friendship of countless thousands of white men whom I class as among my closest friends.

Major Taylor

Great is the victory, but the friendship of all is greater.

Emil Zatopek

I don’t need to go onto Facebook and pretend to have friends I’ve never even met. To my mind, that kind of destroys the meaning of the word ‘friend.’ I take exception to that. Because I value and respect friendship.

Stefanie Powers

Lots of male friendships begin as a cheeky snog. Or a little undercurrent of flirtation.

Kate Winslet

Friendship is one of our most treasured relationships, but it isn’t codified and celebrated; it’s never going to give you a party.

Hanya Yanagihara

You don’t really see too many straight friendships between men and women on ‘Mad Men.’

Jay R. Ferguson

You can’t have friendships that aren’t based on realness.

Chelsea Handler

Never be afraid to meet to the hilt the demand of either work, or friendship – two of life’s major assets.

Eleanor Robson Belmont

There will never be a replacement for that ongoing physical contact. But I don’t think blogging is meant to replace the face-to-face of friendships and meetings. Blogging is a way to keep in touch with a larger group of people on an ongoing basis, in a more efficient way.

Indra Nooyi

Share your smile with the world. It’s a symbol of friendship and peace.

Christie Brinkley

What makes a woman beautiful is her loyalty to and her friendships with other women, and her honesty with men.

Vanessa Marcil

Few friendships would survive if each one knew what his friend says of him behind his back.

Blaise Pascal

It’s such a joy to be able to have friendships free from worry. It’s so lovely to live without fear.

Pattie Boyd

I guess I feel I’m masquerading as an adult when I don’t have the kind of friendships and routines that I thought you were supposed to have as an adult. It’s the ‘Friends’ lied to me! syndrome.

Anna Kendrick

As is natural with contiguous states having like institutions and like aims of advancement and development, the friendship of the United States and Mexico has been constantly maintained.

Chester A. Arthur

I’m a compulsive reader of fiction. I fell in love with novels when I was a teenager. My wife Marilyn and I… our initial friendship began because we are both readers. I’ve gone to sleep almost every night of my life after having read in a novel for 30 or 40 minutes. I’m a great reader of fiction and much less so of non-fiction.

Irvin D. Yalom

Friendship is two-sided. It isn’t a friend just because someone’s doing something nice for you. That’s a nice person. There’s friendship when you do for each other. It’s like marriage – it’s two-sided.

John Wooden

The beginning of a friendship, the fact that two people out of the thousands around them can meet and connect and become friends, seems like a kind of magic to me. But maintaining a friendship requires work. I don’t mean that as a bad thing. Good art requires work as well.

Charles de Lint

If a man does not make new acquaintances as he advances through life, he will soon find himself left alone. A man, sir, should keep his friendship in a constant repair.

Samuel Johnson

Acquaintances we meet, enjoy, and can easily leave behind; but friendship grows deep roots.

H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Plenty of friendships are sustainable through dinners and lunches, but will not stand a week away. So be careful with whom you go on holiday.

Julian Fellowes

But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine.

Thomas Jefferson

Friendship without self-interest is one of the rare and beautiful things of life.

James F. Byrnes

Some of the most lasting contacts and friendships that I have developed began by just grabbing a drink or breaking bread with a stranger at an industry event.

Jay Samit

What I cannot love, I overlook. Is that real friendship?

Anais Nin

The friendship we share grows amidst the craggy rock pond; reeds of water spray fireflies scented with bonfires.

Bradley Chicho

Friendship always benefits; love sometimes injures.

Seneca

I have walked away from friendships when I’ve realized that someone smiles to someone’s face and talks about them the minute they walk out of a room. I have no room in my life for that kind of negative energy anymore.

Sophia Bush

Books are a real solace, friendships are good but action is better than all.

John Burns

I think I’m close to lot of people in Bollywood, but I believe in evil eye, and I feel when I talk about friendships and relationships in public something somewhere goes wrong with it.

Arjun Rampal

You don’t have to dislike people you disagree with and it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to have bipartisan friendships in this place. Life’s too short to have it any other way.

Dave Obey

If there is such a thing as a good marriage, it is because it resembles friendship rather than love.

Michel de Montaigne

All who consult on doubtful matters, should be void of hatred, friendship, anger, and pity.

Sallust

Doing nothing would stress me out. So I am still pretty much active practicing judo with my friends, who are former judo athletes, to maintain our fitness as well as the friendships among us. In my spare time, I usually go jogging around the Gelora Bung Karno stadium or head to the gym.

Joe Taslim

No matter what message you are about to deliver somewhere, whether it is holding out a hand of friendship, or making clear that you disapprove of something, is the fact that the person sitting across the table is a human being, so the goal is to always establish common ground.

Madeleine Albright

All careers go up and down like friendships, like marriages, like anything else, and you can’t bat a thousand all the time.

Julie Andrews

Seth Green, he and I are trying to figure out how this all came about. Because we don’t remember what came first, the chicken or the egg, no pun intended. But I don’t remember what came first, ‘Robot Chicken’ or our friendship, because we’ve known each other for so long.

Katee Sackhoff

I come from the New York theatre world, and I have a lot of gay male friends, so this friendship of Will and Grace’s isn’t such a stretch.

Debra Messing

When actors are vying for the same kinds of roles, there’s bound to be a little rivalry. Deep friendships cannot be forged when you are competing with each other.

Juhi Chawla

I had more friends on my hockey team than I did on my soccer team. I might have been better at soccer, to be honest. But I think it was more the friendship, and my family was more of a hockey family than a soccer family, so when I had to make a decision, I tried hockey, and it turned out to be a good decision.

Carl Hagelin

Because I have sixty years of being a professional composer, conductor, musician, whatever, and you develop a lot of friendships and you get involved with a lot of sort of long-term commitments and obligations.

Gunther Schuller

In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.

Khalil Gibran

I came to Venice for the first time in 1968 and was lucky enough to make the acquaintanceship, and then the friendship, of two Venetians, Roberta and Franco, who remain my best friends here after almost 50 years.

Donna Leon

Eros will have naked bodies; Friendship naked personalities.

C. S. Lewis

If you are a single parent, make friends with others in similar situations and develop friendships with married couples. Counsel with your priesthood leaders. Let them know of your needs and wants. Single parenthood is understood by the Lord.

Ezra Taft Benson

America is stronger because of President Obama’s leadership, and I’m better because of his friendship.

Hillary Clinton

On one side, citizens have great respect for the United States; they have a great feeling of friendship. That is solid. But in the opposition and in the political arena I often find criticism of the closeness of relations with the United States. That is a reality.

Vicente Fox

I’d rather trust nine people and have the 10th one stab me in the back. I’d take that fall in order to have those nine friendships or working relationships instead of having none. That’s not living.

Margot Robbie

I do have a lot of time for people in my life, and friendship is a very important subject for me. I think I’m unusual among the writers I know in that respect.

Salman Rushdie

Friendship is the source of the greatest pleasures, and without friends even the most agreeable pursuits become tedious.

Thomas Aquinas

People are roasting each other at parties, at work events, around the fire. It’s so fun. People are busting each other’s chops, and it’s a sign of affection, truly. It’s a true test of love and friendship: can you make a man laugh at himself? So what makes a good burn? Go after targets you love and respect. And hit ’em hard.

Jeff Ross

I keep my friends as misers do their treasure, because, of all the things granted us by wisdom, none is greater or better than friendship.

Pietro Aretino

Sixth grade was a big time, in my childhood, of hoops and friendship, and coming up with funny things.

Adam Sandler

We have to rise above bad fortune. We have to be in the good and enjoy the good, study and work and adventure and friendship and community and love.

Joshua Prager

Perfect friendship is the friendship of men who are good, and alike in excellence; for these wish well alike to each other qua good, and they are good in themselves.

Aristotle

I think the way to keep a friendship is to respect that everybody is different.

Emma Bunton

Friendships, like marriages, are dependent on avoiding the unforgivable.

John D. MacDonald

A passion for politics stems usually from an insatiable need, either for power, or for friendship and adulation, or a combination of both.

Fawn M. Brodie

Friendship is a disinterested commerce between equals; love, an abject intercourse between tyrants and slaves.

Oliver Goldsmith

Friendship is the shadow of the evening, which increases with the setting sun of life.

Jean de La Fontaine

Life is to be fortified by many friendships. To love and to be loved is the greatest happiness of existence.

Sydney Smith

China has been committed to the independent foreign policy of peace and has developed friendship and cooperation with all countries on the basis of the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence.

Hu Jintao

Friendship is held to be the severest test of character. It is easy, we think, to be loyal to a family and clan, whose blood is in your own veins.

Charles Eastman

There is a lot that binds Germany to Turkey, and even if we have a difference of opinion on an individual matter, the breadth of our links, our friendship, our strategic ties, is great.

Angela Merkel

Came but for friendship, and took away love.

Thomas Moore

Never contract friendship with a man that is not better than thyself.

Confucius

Be true to yourself, help others, make each day your masterpiece, make friendship a fine art, drink deeply from good books – especially the Bible, build a shelter against a rainy day, give thanks for your blessings and pray for guidance every day.

John Wooden

People aren’t defined by their relationship. The whole point is being true to yourself and not losing yourself in relationships, whether romances or friendships.

Nina Dobrev

Whether it’s music, loss of something, loneliness or friendship – if that emotion is heightened in some way and painted to fit in between the covers of 32 pages, that can become a picture book.

Chris Raschka

The only things that are really permanent are love, family, friendship, and that is a lesson. At the end of the day, that’s really what it boils down to. The rest of it is just stuff.

Jared Kushner

I think it’s important to have closure in any relationship that ends – from a romantic relationship to a friendship. You should always have a sense of clarity at the end and know why it began and why it ended. You need that in your life to move cleanly into your next phase.

Jennifer Aniston

Jesus said, ‘Greater things of these you shall do…’ Become a peace builder, a bridge builder, not a destroyer, and the way you do that is through friendships and relationships, and through authentic character.

Ravi Zacharias

Stop using the word ‘bromance.’ Can we please kill that stupid term? We’re just friends. It’s called friendship!

Blake Shelton

Peace and friendship with all mankind is our wisest policy, and I wish we may be permitted to pursue it.

Thomas Jefferson

There are no rules for friendship. It must be left to itself. We cannot force it any more than love.

William Hazlitt

The love that comes from friendship is the underlying facet of a happy life.

Chelsea Handler

A friendship founded on business is better than a business founded on friendship.

John D. Rockefeller

All those who offer an opinion on any doubtful point should first clear their minds of every sentiment of dislike, friendship, anger or pity.

Sallust

We must reach out our hand in friendship and dignity both to those who would befriend us and those who would be our enemy.

Arthur Ashe

Neatness begets order; but from order to taste there is the same difference as from taste to genius, or from love to friendship.

Johann Kaspar Lavater

Obviously, when you’re up against somebody you don’t like there’s extra motivation, but I don’t think any person going for an Olympic gold is going to put friendship first.

Katarina Johnson-Thompson

In the family, in interpersonal relationships, even in friendship, faith is tremendously important. If you have a partner who you believe is a good person, then it is your duty to have faith in them until the end, despite the fact that they might have done some bad things. And you have to support and believe in your children.

Greg Graffin

True friendship is like sound health; the value of it is seldom known until it is lost.

Charles Caleb Colton

I really think that technology has the greatest potential to accelerate happiness of most things in the world. The companies that will ultimately do well are the companies that chase happiness. If you find a way to help people find love, or health or friendship, the dollar will chase that.

Ashton Kutcher

Sweet is the scene where genial friendship plays the pleasing game of interchanging praise.

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

Friendship may, and often does, grow into love, but love never subsides into friendship.

Lord Byron

Love is like the wild rose-briar; Friendship like the holly-tree. The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms, but which will bloom most constantly?

Emily Bronte

While ‘The Help’ is in so many ways a celebration of these women’s friendships and what they overcome, it’s also very truthful and very painful, and it was intense for my mom to read that.

Bryce Dallas Howard

Love is flower like; Friendship is like a sheltering tree.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Both my mother and I have close groups of friends that include other writers, and these friendships are very important to us.

Meg Wolitzer

Those who insist on having hostilities with us, kill and destroy the option of friendship with us in the future, which is unfortunate because it is clear the future belongs to Iran and that enmities will be fruitless.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

The sacrifices of friendship were beautiful in her eyes as long as she was not asked to make them.

Hector Hugh Munro

Men and women can absolutely be friends, and that’s what we need to be. Part of the problem is that we aren’t friends enough. Our relationships are negotiations, and that is not friendship.

Hill Harper

To be capable of steady friendship or lasting love, are the two greatest proofs, not only of goodness of heart, but of strength of mind.

William Hazlitt

I didn’t like England. I couldn’t take the look of the place or the style of friendship. I need more intimacy from people than is considered okay there, and I felt that my personality and my enthusiasms weren’t understood. I had to put a big lid on myself.

Jane Campion

What I particularly like about Broadway is the camaraderie and the friendship of other people in other shows. Everybody knows you’re opening and cares about you. There’s a real village atmosphere.

Ian Mckellen

I don’t connect to a certain girliness or talking about girly things – I feel unauthentic and uncomfortable in that world – maybe I’m just more butch than I realize! I have, however, been fortunate to have a number of great girlfriends. You don’t meet as many girls as you do guys in my line of work, so I do cherish my friendships.

Elizabeth Reaser

I heard my mother talking badly of me to people who were talking badly of me in her salon. That’s probably the thing that I’m most sensitive of in all my friendships and my relationships. I just… I just can’t take that. I’m comfortable with enemies, but I can’t take it from friends.

Vincent Gallo

For prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God.

Saint Teresa of Avila

I think it’s very rare that you see girl friendships on television. It’s always cattiness and all that drama.

Lyndsy Fonseca

I enjoyed being involved in team sports and making close friendships.

Brian McBride

Friendship often ends in love; but love in friendship – never.

Charles Caleb Colton

To me, Green Arrow in the past, what people loved about Oliver Queen pre-New 52 was his relationships with other heroes. Like his friendship with Green Lantern, his animosity with Hawkman, his romance with Black Canary – these are all the things that sort of defined him.

Jeff Lemire

In those early years in New York when I was a stranger in a big city, it was the companionship and later friendship which I was offered in the Linnean Society that was the most important thing in my life.

Ernst Mayr

Friendship is an arrangement by which we undertake to exchange small favors for big ones.

Charles de Montesquieu

I love life in spite of all that mars it. I love friendship, jokes and laughter.

Tahar Ben Jelloun

The knot of intimacy at the center of ‘Ten Thousand Saints’ is the friendship between Teddy McNicholas and Jude Keffy-Horn.

Stacey D’Erasmo

Friendship is something that is cultivated.

Thalia

Many a friendship, long, loyal, and self-sacrificing, rested at first on no thicker a foundation than a kind word.

Frederick William Faber

I support any means to make real connections so long as that it does lead really quickly to real connections. It’s the long-term online friendships and relationships that start to get a little hairy.

Nev Schulman

Restoration of friendship with Russia, our biggest neighbor, is necessary for our peace and economy.

Bidzina Ivanishvili

Friendship is the complete explanation of what a Cheetah Girl is – if you have that true friendship, you can conquer anything you want.

Sabrina Bryan

Have you ever thought how humiliating and distressing it was to be placed upon a sphere? For friendship it is a boon never to be able to be further apart than the antipodes. But suppose that you are leaving together to go on and on; it is impossible. To go beyond a certain point is to return to where you began.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Wishing to be friends is quick work, but friendship is a slow ripening fruit.

Aristotle

Friendship needs no words – it is solitude delivered from the anguish of loneliness.

Dag Hammarskjold

I think in friendship, you want to be there for your friend, and sometimes you just don’t know what to do or the relationship you have with them is not clear enough for you to know what to do.

Marion Cotillard

Laughter is not at all a bad beginning for a friendship, and it is far the best ending for one.

Oscar Wilde

I loved my 17 years with R.E.M., but I’m ready to reflect, assess and move on to a different phase of my life. The four of us will continue our close friendship, and I look forward to hearing their future efforts as the world’s biggest R.E.M. fan.

Bill Berry

Dad needs to show an incredible amount of respect and humor and friendship toward his mate so the kids understand their parents are sexy, they’re fun, they do things together, they’re best friends. Kids learn by example. If I respect Mom, they’re going to respect Mom.

Tim Allen

Love is rarer than genius itself. And friendship is rarer than love.

Charles Peguy

However rare true love may be, it is less so than true friendship.

Francois de La Rochefoucauld

I think ‘Pretty Little Liars’ is going to be hugely popular for adults, for kids, for girls, for guys, you know, something for everyone to look at, and the stories are going to be great. There’s suspense every week. The friendship is really fun to watch. I think it’s going to have something for everybody.

Laura Leighton

This airline is grateful for his extensive contributions and we will miss his friendship and support. We extend our deepest sympathies to the Casey family on its personal loss.

Gerard Arpey

The essence of true friendship is to make allowance for another’s little lapses.

David Storey

There is some self-interest behind every friendship. There is no friendship without self-interests. This is a bitter truth.

Chanakya

From the Twitter responses we got with ‘Best Friends Forever’ and the small feedback we are getting as the show is meted out, I think people are seeing themselves in the show and enjoying seeing female friendship portrayed in the way it really is.

Lennon Parham

In friendship as well as love, ignorance very often contributes more to our happiness than knowledge.

Francois de La Rochefoucauld

I actually feel like I have developed friendships through Twitter, people that I’ve worked with I can kind of keep up with them. I’ve totally turned a corner. I get it. And Instagram.

Bryan Greenberg

It’s love. It’s two men – two strong, very virile men – finding that space in life where they can let go enough of their masculinity to feel the passion of love and respect and trust. Friendships are based on those things, and you seal it with a kiss.

Clarence Clemons

I found that jazz musicians, possibly more than their classical counterparts, wear long-standing friendships easily and gracefully.

Andre Previn

True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity, before it is entitled to the appellation.

George Washington

From an early age I didn’t buy into the value systems of working hard in a nine-to-five job. I thought creativity, friendship and loyalty and pushing the boundaries of what was acceptable was much more interesting.

Adam Clayton

The most important thing for me is to have real friendship between Egyptians and Americans.

Mohammed Morsi

Friendship is Love without his wings!

Lord Byron

Suspicion is the cancer of friendship.

Petrarch

People of noble character are afraid of keeping friendship with dishonorable people. But people of discreditable character consider friendship with the dishonorable as a blood relationship.

Thiruvalluvar

It may be a cold, clammy thing to say, but those that treat friendship the same as any other selfishness seem to get the most out of it.

E. W. Howe

A woman may very well form a friendship with a man, but for this to endure, it must be assisted by a little physical antipathy.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Happiness is determined by factors like your health, your family relationships and friendships, and above all by feeling that you are in control of how you spend your time.

Daniel Kahneman

One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.

Lucius Annaeus Seneca

One friend in a lifetime is much, two are many, three are hardly possible. Friendship needs a certain parallelism of life, a community of thought, a rivalry of aim.

Henry Adams

To want friendship is a great fault. Friendship ought to be a gratuitous joy, like the joys afforded by art or life.

Simone Weil

There is something in the unselfish and self-sacrificing love of a brute, which goes directly to the heart of him who has had frequent occasion to test the paltry friendship and gossamer fidelity of mere Man.

Edgar Allan Poe

The best relationships develop out of friendships.

Diane Keaton

If we would build on a sure foundation in friendship, we must love friends for their sake rather than for our own.

Charlotte Bronte

Be true to yourself. Make each day a masterpiece. Help others. Drink deeply from good books. Make friendship a fine art. Build a shelter against a rainy day.

John Wooden

I’m far from being reclusive. I have 30- or 40-year friendships that I prefer to meeting new people. I go to an occasional party, but just because I don’t go to a lot of events, and I’m not out in public all the time doesn’t mean I’m anti-social or a recluse.

Kirk Kerkorian

I’ve been on tour since I was 16, and I always do meet-and-greets before and after shows, so you kind of build these friendships with people. I have girls come up to me and tell me exactly what’s going on in their love lives.

Taylor Swift

It may be something to do with my having been to a girls’ school, but I’m far more comfortable making male friendships than female ones. My friends tend to be men and their significant others.

Joanne Harris

Here in the big city people spend their time thinking about work and about money; they don’t give some value to friendships and it can be depressing.

Adriana Lima

It is difficult to obtain the friendship of a cat. It is a philosophical animal… one that does not place its affections thoughtlessly.

Theophile Gautier

India-Seychelles relations have been characterized by close friendship, understanding and cooperation.

Pratibha Patil

I thought the more famous I became, the more friendships I would have, but the opposite was true.

Alanis Morissette

There is no greater feeling in business than building a product which impacts people’s lives in a profound way. When we look around at the thousands of people who have attended Summit gatherings, it makes us smile to see the new friendships, business partnerships and philanthropic initiatives that each event produces.

Elliott Bisnow

A man’s friendships are, like his will, invalidated by marriage – but they are also no less invalidated by the marriage of his friends.

Samuel Butler

I suppose, at 50, you value things in a different way. So you value connections, you value your friendships, you value your health, and you are much more aware of time passing.

Kenneth Branagh

Faith is salted and peppered through everything at Christmas. And I love at least one night by the Christmas tree to sing and feel the quiet holiness of that time that’s set apart to celebrate love, friendship, and God’s gift of the Christ child.

Amy Grant

When I was growing up, my mother was always a friend to my siblings and me (in addition to being all the other things a mom is), and I was always grateful for that because I knew she was someone I could talk to and joke with, and argue with and that nothing would ever harm that friendship.

Marlo Thomas

My first experiences of academic friendship made me smile in after years when I looked back on them. But my circle of acquaintances had gradually grown so large that it was only natural new friendships should grow out of it.

Georg Brandes

Workaholics typically have a lot of achievement with very little appreciation of what they have, whether it’s cars or friendships or otherwise. That is a shallow victory.

Christopher Moore

A friend is an emotional bond, just like friendship is a human experience.

The little trouble in the world that is not due to love is due to friendship.

Primarily, ‘Black Girl/White Girl’ is the story of two very different, yet somehow ‘fated’ girls; for Genna, her ‘friendship’ with Minette is the most haunting of her life, though it is one-sided and ends in tragedy.

Joyce Carol Oates

The problem is, and I’m just as guilty of this, a lot of people see their follower count increase and mistake that for friendships. It’s great to have followers, especially if you want to sell albums, promote shows, or promote your friends, but you still need to get outside and talk to other human beings.

Patton Oswalt

The second one, the joint Truth and Friendship Commission, which we started now with Indonesia, that is the one that has been criticized; its terms of reference call for providing amnesty for those who cooperate in telling the truth. It does not lead to prosecution.

Saint Basil

Meg Ryan is a beautiful and courageous woman. I grieve the loss of her companionship but I’ve not lost the friendship. We talk all the time and that was what our connection was about. She has a wonderful mind and we just like a chat.

Russell Crowe

We never saw Google+ Circles or Facebook Lists as reflective of the way our friendships play out.

Evan Spiegel

The arrogance that says analysing the relationship between reasons and causes is more important than writing a philosophy of shyness or sadness or friendship drives me nuts. I can’t accept that.

Alain de Botton

Most critics of gender division are women, and they’re worried about girls and the roles presented for them by gendered entertainments. They are quite right to be. Telling girls that the cars and the guns are beyond their domain of expertise, and that they should content themselves with clothes and friendships, is limiting.

Look at a football field. It looks like a big movie screen. This is theatre. Football combines the strategy of chess. It’s part ballet. It’s part battleground, part playground.

Steve Sabol

The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have.

What’s on my playlist when I’m fighting is not so much hip-hop. Sometimes, it’s something more inspirational. I get a chance to think about what I’m fighting for, like, my family. It takes me to that state because a lot of times, it’s a spiritual warfare for me.

Tyron Woodley

Silence is the last thing the world will ever hear from me.

Molly Ivins

Light tomorrow with today!
