- A. N. Wilson

Graham Blue Sky

When you look at the light bulb above you, you remember Thomas Alva Edison. When the telephone bell rings, you remember Alexander Graham Bell. Marie Curie was the first woman to win the Nobel Prize. When you see the blue sky, you think of Sir C.V. Raman.

I Think Here

Quite frankly, I think if a man or a woman likes their American job, wherever they were born, they should be able to keep that job. We need a clear path to citizenship for workers who are already here and a fair and efficient on-ramp for those who want to come here.

- Adam Grant

Devote Eventually

'All-Star Wonder Woman' would get worked on in what is laughably referred to as my 'spare time.' I just ended up with less and less time to devote to it.

Humanity is the virtue of a woman, generosity that of a man.

I Think Other

I think women should be more independent. In society, we're portrayed as people who simply wear make-up and sit around. We need a Princess Charming - a woman who rescues her man and slays the dragon instead of the other way round.

Estee Lauder was my grandmother. She was an iconic and powerful woman, but to us, she was just Estee. She was the first person to teach me how important it is to be passionate and proud of what you do, and always talked about 'balance.'

- Aerin Lauder

Love Guarded

Married love between man and woman is bigger than oaths guarded by right of nature.

- Aeschylus

Streets Allow

Any woman can fool a man if she wants to and if he's in love with her.

Modeling About

Not just in modeling, but in society, there's so much pressure about what a woman should be, and, of course, it's just so unobtainable. You can never become that thing, because it's such a projection.

- Agyness Deyn

Religious Half

Although the Nasser revolution of 1952 was secular, the culture remained deeply religious - but it was a faith of moderation and tolerance. Women made up nearly half my class at university, and my senior academic adviser there was a woman. In Alexandria, my friends were Christians and Muslims.

I'm just an average woman with average concerns.

- Aja Naomi King

Love Another

I love the powerful woman who's complicated. There's no push to be one thing or another thing. It's all human. That's what you look for as an actor: characters written and portrayed in the most human way possible.

- Aja Naomi King

Think Always

I always think - when I get mad, and people say, 'Don't be the angry black woman' - it's like, well, why not? There's so much to be angry about.

Guns Fact

I've never cared for guns. In fact, when I did 'Scent of a Woman' I had to learn how to assemble one.

- Al Pacino

Got Weeks

It surprised me, the feeling I got when I won the Oscar for 'Scent of a Woman.' It was a new feeling. I'd never felt it. I don't see my Oscar much now. But when I first got it, there was a feeling for weeks afterward that I guess is akin to winning a gold medal in the Olympics.

- Al Pacino

Tide Against

Marie Curie is my hero. Few people have accomplished something so rare - changing science. And as hard as that is, she had to do it against the tide of the culture at the time - the prejudice against her as a foreigner, because she was born in Poland and worked in France. And the prejudice against her as a woman.

- Alan Alda

Strong Very

No man or woman of the humblest sort can really be strong, gentle and good, without the world being better for it, without somebody being helped and comforted by the very existence of that goodness.

More Like

Why can't a woman be more like a man?

- Alan Jay Lerner

Chapter By The Time

Everything you've ever read of mine is first-draft. This is one of the peculiarities of the comics field.

You can't go back and suddenly decide to make this character a woman, or have this one fall out of a window.

- Alan Moore

Religious Very

I grew up in Nacogdoches, Texas... raised by my grandmother. We were very poor and had no indoor plumbing. My grandmother was a very religious woman, though, and she gave me a lot of faith and inner strength.

- Alana Stewart

Legacy Behind

For all of her influence on popular culture, and the remarkable performances she left behind, perhaps Farrah Fawcett's greatest legacy was her raw, intimate, honest portrait of a woman fighting for her life - against cancer.

- Alana Stewart

Artist Been

I'm a liability to them - I'm a woman, I'm empowered, I'm an artist. I've had executives who can't come to my shows they're so scared of me. I've been a thorn in many people's sides just by existing.

- Alanis Morissette

Been Part

When someone says that I'm angry it's actually a compliment. I have not always been direct with my anger in my relationships, which is part of why I'd write about it in my songs because I had such fear around expressing anger as a woman.

- Alanis Morissette

Think I Think

If a woman is comfortable with herself, I think that's what radiates. I think the moment you start questioning your body and looks is when you get into trouble.

- Alanna Ubach

Her Persona

If you change a woman's look, you change her persona.

- Alber Elbaz

Designers Realised

I thought, 'It doesn't matter what that woman is wearing,' but then I realised actually it's our job as designers to make women smile; to bring them the chocolate without the calories.

Doing Feels

I'm not a plastic surgeon, and I cannot change the DNA of a person, but when I see a woman try on my clothes and she feels beautiful, I know I am doing my job.

- Alber Elbaz

Big Pretty

I was offered 'Pretty Woman.' I was offered 'Big' and 'Dead Poets Society.' But what was important to me in those years was to make movies, to make these Albert Brooks movies.

- Albert Brooks

Self-Esteem Known

Self-esteem is the greatest sickness known to man or woman because it's conditional.

- Albert Ellis

Flowers Smells

I actually use women's perfume - I have since I was a kid. It's called Anais Anais, from Rachael. It smells like a beautiful woman and a bouquet of flowers. I use that and Right Guard deodorant.

- Albert Hammond, Jr.

Need Like

I don't need to be married to Georgia O'Keeffe or Lillian Hellman, but I like being with a woman I can look up to.

College Wheelchair

As my friend said to me, when you have children, typically in a second marriage, when you're older and you get married again to a woman who would have children, you must always remember that you make sure the children attend a college where the commencement ceremonies are held in a facility with a wheelchair accessible ramp.

- Alec Baldwin

Date Tickets

Look at the shows that are really successful on Broadway. They're musicals. They're things that a woman will pick out the tickets for, or a man will buy the tickets with a woman in mind. It's a date. It's boyfriend-girlfriend, husband-wife. That's what the theater in New York has become.

- Alec Baldwin

Next Imagine

I can imagine myself on my death-bed, spent utterly with lust to touch the next world, like a boy asking for his first kiss from a woman.

- Aleister Crowley

Religious Despised

I believe in mysticism, with an interior goal, and you are your own temple and your own priest. I don't believe anymore in religions, because you see today there are religious wars, prejudice, false morals, and the woman is despised. Religion is too old now; it's from another century, it's not for today.

- Alejandro Jodorowsky

Cats Need

Five cats and a woman. That is all I need in life.

- Alejandro Jodorowsky

I Am Like

I am like a woman. I have a woman inside me.

Love Movie

- Alessandra Torresani

Beautiful Her

There's something so beautiful in a woman who loves her body and is confident.

- Alessia Cara

Been Before

I have been able to enjoy the strides that others have made before me. I don't want to scoff at the idea that there was sexism, but I don't wake up in the morning and think, 'I am a woman in tech.' I just go to work, and my work is in technology.

- Alexa Hirschfeld

Own Very

My fascination with women's clothes began very early. My mother was a very fashionable woman. She also made her own clothes. She had these fashion magazines, and I would draw the women in them. My middle school art teacher suggested that I have a fashion drawing show.

- Alexander Chee

Design Designers

Clothes and jewellery should be startling, individual. When you see a woman in my clothes, you want to know more about them. To me, that is what distinguishes good designers from bad designers.

- Alexander McQueen

Rest Give

When a woman gets dressed up to go out at night, she wants to give 50% away, and hold the rest back. If you're an open book, there's no allure.

- Alexander McQueen

Idea Plight

It's not my vision when I cover a woman's face with a chador. I got the idea from a 'National Geographic' photo. I'm just showing their plight in the world.

- Alexander McQueen

Love Ever

Best Still

Woman's at best a contradiction still.

Sad Soul

The saddest thing that befalls a soul is when it loses faith in God and woman.

- Alexander Smith

Falling Same Time

Man cannot degrade woman without himself falling into degradation; he cannot elevate her without at the same time elevating himself.

- Alexander Walker

Over It Extension

A woman's body never really belongs to herself. As an infant, my body was my mother's, a detachable extension of her own, a digestive passage clamped and unclamped from her body. My parents would watch over it, watch over what went into and out of it, and as I grew up, I would be expected to carry on their watching by myself.

- Alexandra Kleeman

Chess Imagine

A woman can beat any man; it's difficult to imagine another kind of sport where a woman can beat a man. That's why I like chess.

- Alexandra Kosteniuk

Young Chains

Aaliyah revolutionized what it was to be a young black woman in America. She made it OK to be a nerd and to be a tomboy. She made it OK to wear leather and chains. She was the first black girl with an ombre. She was so far ahead of everything and everyone. It was just who she was. She was an innovator, but she didn't even realize it.

- Alexandra Shipp

Always Almost

It is rare that one can see in a little boy the promise of a man, but one can almost always see in a little girl the threat of a woman.

- Alexandre Dumas

Most Fancied

Most of my friends are women - I quite fancied being a woman in a way.

- Alexei Sayle

Dress Performer

Yes, I am transgendered but I also am a cross-dresser - I dress as a woman. It's not that I just want to be seen as a female in our society, I'm also a drag queen and a performer - there are many levels there.

- Alexis Arquette

Grow She

In the long years liker they must grow; The man be more of woman, she of man.

- Ali Fazal

Love Want

I love true love, and I'm a woman who wants to be married for a lifetime. That traditional life is something that I want.

- Ali Larter

Medical Rather

When I ask my medical students to describe their image of a woman who elects to birth with a midwife rather than with an obstetrician, they generally describe a woman who wears long cotton skirts, braids her hair, eats only organic vegan food, does yoga, and maybe drives a VW microbus.

- Alice Dreger

Always Means

When a woman like that whom I've seen so much, All of a sudden drops out of touch; Is always busy and never can, Spare you a moment, it means a man.

- Alice Duer Miller

Beauty Examine

As we all know, there is inner beauty and outer beauty. If we examine inner beauty, to me there is nothing more beautiful than inner peace, in a man or a woman.

- Alice Greczyn
