The people that run and rule our country are all raised to believe they are the centre of the universe and nothing matters more than their own fulfilment and happiness.
( Rose Winfold )

Riches and abundance come hypocritically clad in sheep’s clothing, pretending to be security against anxieties, and they become then the object of anxiety.
They secure a man against anxieties just about as well as the wolf that is put to tending the sheep. 

( Søren Kierkegaard )

I don’t think I ever look really horrible, but I am noticing a few lines here and there.
( Peter Andre )

In every age it has been the tyrant, the oppressor and the exploiter who has wrapped himself in the cloak of patriotism, or religion, or both, to deceive and overawe the people.
( Eugene V. Debs, 1855-1926 )

I’d quite like to be Lady Kate.
( Kate Moss )

Our Leaders and Public Servants should never forget that their salaries and perks come from the pockets of the poor.
As they claim their expenses, they should imagine that they are submitting them to a struggling young family barely able to afford payments on a house and a car.
( Rose Winfold )

I’ve been hung out to dry, and I know who’s to blame.
I’ve had no opportunity whatsoever to prove myself and instead they’ve just cast me aside like a fool.
( Cheryl Cole )

You consider war to be inevitable?
Very good.

Let everyone who advocates war be enrolled in a special regiment of advance guards, for the front of every storm, of every attack, to lead them all.
( Leo Tolstoy )

Truth always rests with the minority.
Because the minority is generally formed by those who really have an opinion, while the strength of a majority is illusory, formed by the gangs who have no opinion.

( Søren Kierkegaard )

We are not born hating other people because of the colour of their skin, creed or race.
We are taught to hate by bigots and racists.
And if we can learn to hate, we can be taught to love by the good people in the world.
It’s a choice we all can make.
Love comes more naturally to the heart than does hate.
( Rose Winfold )

I’ve never had cosmetic surgery, not yet.
I was born this way.
But maybe after I pop out a few Gaga babies I’ll be not born this way any more.
( Lady Gaga )

Our fighting men are controlled by men who have never done any fighting in their soft little lives. No wonder that combat is embarked on so casually, and with such disastrous results.
If British Prime Ministers had to send their own children to war, then we would live in peace for ever more.
( Dion Felsrow )

Money isn’t where my happiness comes from.
Money to me never mattered.
It still doesn’t.

( Mila Kunis )

I have no country to fight for.
My country is the Earth.

I am a citizen of the world.
( Eugene V. Debs, 1855-1926 )

‘HOE’ simply means Human On Earth.
We are all Hoes.
( Len Firswood )

It must be tough knowing your parents gave you a hyphen, sent you to be sodomised in the best boarding school in the land, seeing yourself as superior to the rest of the human race, only to realise you don’t have any real friends and almost everyone thinks you are an asshole.
( Rose Winfold )

I’ll never forget what it’s like to struggle for money.
When I was a young actress, I’d be in situations where I couldn’t pay my rent.
And because I know what it feels like, I’m very grateful I don’t have to experience it ever again.
( Julia Roberts )

One of the more repulsive parts of modern Conservative philosophy is the claim that poverty no longer exists in Britain.
( Dion Felsrow )

The truth is introduced, and with that it enters into the process of history.
But unfortunately this does not (as so many ludicrously assume) result in the purification of the idea, which never is purer than in its primitive form.
No, it results, with steadily increasing momentum, in garbling the truth, in making it dull, trite, in wearing it out, in introducing impure ingredients that originally were not present.
What happens is the very opposite of filtering, until at last, by the enthusiastic cooperation and mutual consent of a number of successive generations, the point is reached where the truth is entirely extinguished and its opposite embraced.

( Søren Kierkegaard )

I was so obese I’d lie in bed trying to tear bits off my body.
( Marcus Brigstocke )

David Cameron puts huge effort into keeping his temper.
In public he’s Dr Jekyll turning on the charm, in private he’s Mr Hyde, petulant and unpleasant.
He’s quick to dish out the abuse.

Then chucks his toys out the pram at the merest criticism.
Cameron’s wanted to be Prime Minister since he wore breeches.
I know because one of his former girlfriends told me.
The Old Etonian believes he was born to rule yet he can’t hack the pressure of high office.
( Kevin Maguire )

Of all the top movie stars I’ve worked with, there’s one I always get excited by. Anthony Hopkins.
What is it about him?
( Julia Roberts )

We are witnessing a transfer of wealth of unfathomable size.
It is a transfer of wealth from public hands, from the hands of government, collected from ordinary people in the form of taxes, into the hands of the wealthiest corporations and individuals in the world.
The very individuals and corporations that created the crisis.
( Len Firswood )

I did a disco for Bill Gates.
His dance style is surreal.
It’s a clap to the front, a clap to the back, and a shuffle.
( Sophie Ellis-Bextor )

Given that the families are in extreme poverty, should they be having children?
( Tory MP Claire Perry, November 2010 )

Some days you feel like you’re gorgeous and some days you feel like you’re a slag.
( Debbie Harry )

Lead from the back, and let others believe they are in front.
( Rose Winfold )

Anxiety can just as well express itself by muteness as by a scream. 
( Soren Kierkegaard )

I would never want to be the prettiest girl in the room.
( Kelly Osbourne )

Beggars are the sort of people you step on when you come out of the opera.
( Tory Sir George Young )

The pimply ratboy hoodies, with an I.Q of a dead chicken, who roam around in gangs terrorising ordinary folk, are cowards and bullies who don’t deserve to share the same air that decent people breathe.
They are an embarrassment to themselves, an embarrassment to our society and the sooner these ball-scratching idiots grow up the better it will be for all of us.
( Dion Felsrow )

Women should realise that what makes them beautiful is what sets them apart from everyone else.
( Aimee Mullins )

Being a good, decent person is cool.
Don’t be an asshole.
No one likes assholes.
( Len Firswood )

My family don’t watch a lot of what I do.
Films are a bit too arty-farty for them, certainly the ones I do.
( Samantha Morton )

Our world will remain a cruel, unsympathetic place as long as the wicked, the evil, the greedy, the selfish, and the nasty individuals are allowed the freedom to breathe air which could be used to blow up balloons.
( Rose Winfold )

Some people think that I take drugs because I look too happy.
And when I try and complement some people they don’t like it.
They think that I must want something from them.
But I don’t want anything from them.
Most have nothing to give, and what they do have isn’t worth a great deal.
No, they can keep what they have got and I will keep what I have.
( Marc Carver )

We have more degrees, but less sense.
More experts, but more problems.
More medicines, but less healthiness.
More computers, but less communication.
More concerned with quantity, but short on quality.
( Dion Felsrow )

Men are like hunters, they like the chase.
So you have to keep them guessing.

( Rihanna )

We have allowed reality television to make them an empty promise of overnight success.
Saturday night talent shows make ten-second celebrities of ordinary people.

( Lord Freud )

Don’t try too hard to be something you’re not.
( Daniel Radcliffe )

It is perfectly true, as philosophers say, that life must be understood backwards.
But they forget the other proposition, that it must be lived forwards.
And if one thinks over that proposition it becomes more and more evident that life can never really be understood in time because at no particular moment can I find the necessary resting-place from which to understand it.

( Soren Kierkegaard )

I think we’ve gotten a warped sense of beauty these days.
We look at someone and say, they’ve had great surgery rather than they are very beautiful.
I like the way people age and I think you do earn your face.

( Dana Delany )

Marriage hasn’t been important to me.
I believe we are with who we are supposed to be when we’re supposed to be with them.
If I try and lock something down, I miss out on all the possibilities of what it could be.
And you can’t just have a child because you think it’s something you’re supposed to do.
It’s not an absolute for me.

( Justin Timberlake )

Any actor who says their character is nothing like themselves – unless they’re playing Quasimodo – is probably telling a fib.
You bring yourself to it.
( David Essex )

Twitter is a social media you can use when you have nothing intelligent to say.
But you can just go ahead and say it anyway.
( Len Firswood )

I’m big in Russia, but no one’s quite sure why.
The theory I keep hearing is that apparently I look rather Russian.
Whatever the reason, I love going there.
( Sophie Ellis-Bextor )

I have yet to meet a fan who wants a kiss.
I probably scare them off before it gets that far.
( Stacey Solomon )

I am opposing a social order in which it is possible for one man who does absolutely nothing that is useful to amass a fortune of hundreds of millions of dollars, while millions of men and women who work all the days of their lives secure barely enough for a wretched existence.
( Eugene V. Debs, 1855-1926 )

I don’t know if acting helped me overcome my shyness, but you can’t afford to be shy in this business because you’re forever telling people to piss off.
( Jennifer Beals )

Being adopted gave me a bit more freedom in a way.
It gave me a licence to expect anything and not be predetermined, which proved great for me career-wise.
As I got older, I realised the differences between us – I knew that I was an artist, and although my parents were interested in the arts, they didn’t work in the arts.
The funny thing is, I look at myself now as I’m ageing and I see expressions of my (adoptive) mother’s, although I don’t look like her at all.
It’s kind of fascinating that, somehow or other, things just seem to etch in.
( Debbie Harry )

I think I would struggle to be anyone but me.
I’ll never ever change and that’s a promise.
( Stacey Solomon )
