Hero Jewish

I've tried to be inclusive in my '2B' series. Over the course of three books, I wrote African-American characters, a paraplegic character, gay and lesbian characters, a bisexual, Jewish heroine, a multiracial hero, Korean and Chinese-American characters, and a multiracial supporting character.

- Ann Aguirre

Role Roles

- Cy Young

Two Plays

I did two or three plays every summer.

- Dabney Coleman

Stage Fright About

I didn't have traditional stage fright. If there was 500 people in the audience or three people in the audience, it didn't really make a difference. What made a difference was the conductor. Everything that I was scared about as a drummer was him. It was his face. It was whether or not he'd approve of my playing.

- Damien Chazelle

End Of The Day About

Homeland Got

Book Least

Political However

My social philosophy may be said to be enshrined in three words: liberty, equality and fraternity. Let no one, however, say that I have borrowed by philosophy from the French Revolution. I have not.

- B. R. Ambedkar

Thought Been

When you have a diagnosis of cancer, or any serious illness, your choices are basically to be passive and kind of accept whatever is offered you, or to be active and to learn about your disease, and understand your options, and be an active partner with your doctor.

- Bill Bryson

Either Silly Things

You cannot make money with a hockey team. You cannot make money with a hotel, either, and you cannot make money with a golf club. I have all three of them.

Jim Bakker spells his name with two k's because three would be too obvious.

Good Twilight

I did three of the original 'Twilight Zone' episodes, yes.

So, yes, I have a good 'Twilight Zone' alumni jacket.

Driven Times

I've driven in L.A. probably three times. I'm a slug in L.A.

Own Babies

- Bode Miller

Believe Our

I truly believe that when the history books are written, our age will be remembered for three things: the war on terror, the digital revolution, and what we did - or did not do - to put the fire out in Africa. History, like God, is watching what we do.

Brothers

I'm one of three brothers.

- Ikue Mori

Ice About

I'll get to the oval three hours beforehand and warm up for about 45 minutes off the ice. Then I'll stretch and get on the ice for 20 minutes. I'll cool down, then relax, close my eyes and think about what I need to do.

- Jack Reynor

Down Wagner

Peter Wagner, my son, just won the Bel-Air Junior Club Championship. Parred the last three holes. One-putts, up and down. Us Wagners don't hit greens. We chip and putt.
