Some suggestions for you :

Give it everything you've got. I've told you many times, ‘Can't do is like Don't Care.' Neither of them have a home.

I'm a serious aficionada of country music - Reba McEntire, Toby Keith, Montgomery Gentry. I've even written some songs. They haven't done anything of mine yet. But it's only a matter of time.

If someone shows you the first time who they are, believe them.

Because I was really white and because a cruel fairy stepmother, who was understandably jealous of my beauty, had turned me into a too-big Negro girl, with nappy black hair, broad feet and a space between her teeth that would hold a number-two pencil.

Yet it is only love which sets us free.

Be creative, but make sure that what you create is not a curse for mankind.

You are very kind and very intelligent and those elements are not always found together. Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt, Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, and my mother - yes, you belong in that category. Here, give me a kiss.

I think Clinton, after getting into office and into Washington, was shocked at being bludgeoned.

You can't just play around with all those big cats - you've got to take somebody on.

Scientists investigate that which already is.

Anything that works against you can also work for you once you understand the Principle of Reverse.

Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.

Preparation is rarely easy and never beautiful.
