Quotable Quotes:

"Adversity cause some men to break; others to break records."

"It gets late early out here."

"[on her commitment to choose only positive images] Challenges make you discover things about yourself that you never really knew. They're what make the instrument stretch -- what make you go beyond the norm. The choices of roles I made had to do with educating and entertaining. And as a result, I found myself working only every two or three years. (IMDB)"
