Most reporters I've spoken with want very badly to understand what is happening to her, but the "why" is really very unimportant. That is just not the point of the show. The journey is how she will deal with this situation, and how it will change her life.caroline dhavernas
My whole life I have suffered from poverty and have faced many disappointments and pain, like a man is used to. That is why I want to make other people happy and want them to feel at home.jim jones

I've been nine stone for 20 years, I always eat what I want, it's not an issue for me. But it pisses me off - because if people did decide that I starved myself, it would have a direct consequence on what we advocate!trinny woodall

“We in the Handdara don’t want answers. It’s hard to avoid them, but we try to.” “Faxe, I don’t think I understand.” “Well, we come here to the Fastnesses mostly to learn what questions not to ask.” “But you’re the Answerers!” “You don’t see, Genry, why we perfected and practice Foretelling?” “No ” “To exhibit the perfect uselessness of knowing the answer to the wrong question.”ursula k. le guin

I don’t believe there are any free lunches. There is no easy ride to success. The journey is what it is and you have to accept that if you want to be a successful entrepreneur.
There isn't such a reasonable fellow in the world, to hear him talk. He never wants anything but what's right and fair; only when you come to settle what's right and fair, it’s everything he wants, and nothing that you want. And that’s his idea of a compromise.thomas hughes

I have seen men march to the wars, and then I have watched their homeward tread, And they brought back bodies of living men, But their eyes were cold and dead.

I want the Iranians to know that if I'm the president, we will attack Iran (if it attacks Israel). In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them.

Terrified people do not want to be free, they want to be protected. If you can keep the people in a state of terror, you won't have to take away their freedom they'll give it to you willingly.
