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.
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.
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.
Men are like lions. We hunt.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A lion’s work hours are only when he’s hungry; once he’s satisfied, the predator and prey live peacefully together.
An injured lion still wants to roar.
Vegetarians are cool. All I eat are vegetarians – except for the occasional mountain lion steak.
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.
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.
A lion is not a lion is not a lion. As individuals, as mates, as members of a society, they’re all very different.
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.
It’s an incredibly difficult thing to bring a giraffe down. They can kill a lion with a single blow from their feet.
I shot my first lion at the age of 14 when a pride threatened my father’s livestock while he was away on holiday.
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.
I am impelled, not to squeak like a grateful and apologetic mouse, but to roar like a lion out of pride in my profession.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I feel like my Lion Babe look is an embellishment of my everyday look – it’s definitely more extravagant and more artistic.
The lions taught me photography. They taught me patience and the sense of beauty, a beauty that penetrates you.

Well, you know, I played Mufasa in the workshop of The Lion King.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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!
I got to know Elton John’s older music by learning to like his newer stuff. ‘The Lion King?’ That’s what I like.
I love watching the Serengeti, the way lions live. The only way the king lion loses his crown is by somebody physically defeating him.
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.
‘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.

I’m a lioness. I have four cubs. I’m a mom. I want to take care of my kids and protect them.
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.
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.
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.
I was in Australia in 1983 and did a stunt in a lion’s cage.
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.
In first grade, I told my friends I had a third story in my house filled with jewels and lions.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
Some people lose all respect for the lion unless he devours them instantly. There is no pleasing some people.
Whenever the lion fish in the fish tank in the captain’s ready room died it was always a sad moment.
A truly strong person does not need the approval of others any more than a lion needs the approval of sheep.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Fear not, we are of the nature of the lion, and cannot descend to the destruction of mice and such small beasts.
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.
In boxing, it is about the obsession of getting the most from yourself: wanting to dominate the world like a hungry young lion.
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.
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.
The lion and the calf shall lie down together but the calf won’t get much sleep.
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.
You know, I am a Leo. Lion is a giant part of me.
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.
An optimist is someone who gets treed by a lion but enjoys the scenery.
We had a lion that was living in somebody’s basement outside of Branson, Missouri.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.’
I would rather be the tail of a lion than the head of a mouse.
I wish my teammates, coaches and the entire Lions organization all the best.
My first recording, a guy came down to Philadelphia and heard me play and he introduced me to Alfred Lion.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Shall we, who have laid the proud British lion at our feet, now be afraid of his whelps?
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.
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.
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.
I went with Lionel Hampton for three years. Out of that came a trip to Europe.
I am an employment hyena. I am happy to make a meal of what the lions leave behind.
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.
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.
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.’
I grew a love for helpless, defenseless things. People would give me lions and jaguars. I had cheetahs, monkeys.
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.
Only in art will the lion lie down with the lamb, and the rose grow without thorn.
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.
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.’
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.
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.
After The Wizard Of Oz I was typecast as a lion, and there aren’t all that many parts for lions.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I don’t mind going into a liberal lion’s den. That’s where you test yourself.
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.
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.
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.
I was the shyest human ever invented, but I had a lion inside me that wouldn’t shut up!
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.
Cat: a pygmy lion who loves mice, hates dogs, and patronizes human beings.
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.
As my early drawings warned me, where humans go, lions and tidal waves follow.
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.
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.
I quit because I didn’t feel like the Detroit Lions had a chance to win. It just killed my enjoyment of the game.
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.
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.
A lion runs the fastest when he is hungry.
Only in art will the lion lie down with the lamb, and the rose grow without the thorn.
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.
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.
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.
The Christians had a better chance against the lions than the American consumer has against the OPEC cartel.
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.
There hasn’t been this much excitement since the Romans fed the Christians to the Lions.

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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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

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

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.
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

Have you recently been through a challenge, disappointment, break up or disloyalty with somebody in your life?

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

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.
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.
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.

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

‘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.
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.
