It's better to have loved and lost than to have to do forty pounds of laundry a week.
It is better to have loved and lost than never to have lost at all.
I loved 'White Christmas' for the music aspect. I was into musical theater.
One Christmas my father kept our tree up till March. He hated to see it go. I loved that.
I've always loved Christmas and that's not really gone away from me from being a child to now. It's always a magical time and I'm unashamed in my love for Christmas.
I am the woman I grew to be partly in spite of my mother and partly because of the extraordinary love of her best friends and my own best friends' mothers and from surrogates many of whom were not women at all but gay men. I have loved them my entire life even after their passing.
My favorite play in drama school was 'The Bacchae.' It's about a king who literally gets eaten alive by all the women in the play in a kind of orgy - it's related to the word 'bacchanal' - and I loved that idea of animalistic chaos and following our own desires.
I remember when the wave of Jennifer Lopez Salma Hayek and these beautiful Hispanic women came into light and I looked up to them and I loved them but I was like 'Where are Middle Eastern women?'
Women are made to be loved not understood.
I believe we have become paralyzed paralyzed by our desire to be loved. Now our founding fathers had the wisdom to know that social acceptance and popularity were fleeing and that this country's principles needed to be rooted in strengths greater than the passions and the emotions of the times.
I had seen people who had lost everything and everyone they loved to war famine and natural disasters.
I did a production of 'Journey's End ' an RC Sherriff play about World War I at the Edinburgh Festival. I was 18 and it was the first time that people I knew and loved and respected came up to me after the show and said 'You know you could really do this if you wanted to.'
People talk about 'getting rid of the old image' and I guess there's some merit in that. But the truth is that people loved 'The Wonder Years' - I can't turn my back on it.
For truth has such a face and such a mien as to be loved needs only to be seen.
For above all things Love means sweetness and truth and measure yea loyalty to the loved one and to your word. And because of this I dare not meddle with so high a matter.
The truth is cruel but it can be loved and it makes free those who have loved it.
I have always loved truth so passionately that I have often resorted to lying as a way of introducing it into the minds which were ignorant of its charms.
Human love has little regard for the truth. It makes the truth relative since nothing not even the truth must come between it and the beloved person.
I wish my parents hadn't made me feel that how I looked was linked to how much they loved me. But I do also see how hard it must be to see your child pile on the pounds and trust they'll find their own way back to a healthy weight.
To be trusted is a greater compliment than being loved.
I loved the travel but I didn't love the work. I mean come on modelling is only so stimulating!
Until 1914 I loved to travel I often went to Italy and once spent a few months in India. Since then I have almost entirely abandoned travelling and I have not been outside of Switzerland for over ten years.
Where does discontent start? You are warm enough but you shiver. You are fed yet hunger gnaws you. You have been loved but your yearning wanders in new fields. And to prod all these there's time the Bastard Time.
A pain stabbed my heart as it did every time I saw a girl I loved who was going the opposite direction in this too-big world.
I wanted to be a pilot. I loved flying and I loved all the technology and the equipment and the sense of adventure that came with it. I think that feeling still bleeds over into everything I do today.
I loved almost everything about being a teacher but I was an unusual teacher.
I went whole hog at the actor's lifestyle - really embraced it. I had by then known how much I loved acting already because I discovered acting from a teacher in the seminary - that's the first place I ever did it in the seminary.
I wasn't originally taking drama but the drama teacher asked me to audition for Bye Bye Birdie. I did and got the lead role. Initially I was kind of scared but once I did it I got bitten by the bug and loved it.
I was a mimic when I was a child. I mimicked the teacher and made friends that way actually. That was a very subversive activity because I was a goody-goody who never got in trouble. But if I went off in the corner and mimicked the teacher people loved it.
I thought well of course Kinsey absolutely adored teaching. He was a wonderful teacher. So these kids really inspired me. So that was a clue I hung onto. He loved young people he absolutely loved them. And he loved teaching them and trying to help them.
The thing I loved the most - and still love the most about teaching - is that you can connect with an individual or a group and see that individual or group exceed their limits.
I think loss of loved ones is the hardest blow in life.
With 'Believe' bringing really big success for me outside of the U.K. for the first time it meant I have been touring around the world and that led to a gap from the studio. I really feel like the gap has done me the world of good. Throughout that time I was able to collect songs that I really loved.
