Big Been

A big part of the problem that we face today is that our children have been taught at schools that every idea is right, that no one should criticize others' positions, no matter how odious.

- Kerris Dorsey

Big Very

I feel like I've been very smart in the way that I carry myself and treat myself. I feel like my mom was a big part of that just because she's always let us make our own decisions, and we've known very much about the mistakes and the dangers already of whatever this Hollywood life may be.

- Evan Ross

Notes Big

Color is a big part of what I do. It's like music. There are only so many notes in the scale, but there are endless permutations; there's no limit to the number. Color on the walls or furniture can reflect back and distort the reality of the true colors of lipsticks and eye shadow.

- Evelyn Lauder

Big Unskilled

A big part of the anti-immigration narrative is the perception that the majority of immigrants are poor, uneducated, and unskilled.

- Fabrizio Moreira
