― Margaret Cho

“American TV news is much more sophisticated. I think that American TV networks, it looks like, they invest a lot into news.”

― Margarita Simonyan

“Sometimes it feels as if the artist hasn’t done the real work of engaging with the material. Film noir can’t just play off looks and attitudes. A thriller needs a dose of genuine suspense.

― Megan Amram

“Everyone who has a pair of eyes in this country understands the racial tensions and the issues we have are very serious and they’re not going away. Just because we had Barack Obama as our president and, on paper, everything looks equal, it’s very clearly not.”

― Megan Rapinoe

“Like a physically beautiful but otherwise rather dull person who trades on his or her looks, Southern California swings perpetually between a profound inferiority complex and an equally profound sense of entitlement.”

― Michelle Yeoh

“The key is that you never check the championship. You always carry it on.

― Mickie James

“If there is anyone who knows what a rigged system looks like, it’s Donald Trump, who was able to evade the draft during the height of the Vietnam War when the U.S. was losing on average 1,000 troops every month.

― Terry Rozier

“When I went around promoting ‘Crumb,’ there would be days I’d wake up in, like, Houston or Cleveland, and I’d step outside the hotel and get no idea where I was.

― Terry Zwigoff

― Tuppence Middleton

“From as far back as I can remember, I was always insecure about my looks, whether it was my flat chest, my skinny legs, or how to cope with my body as it changed. With hindsight, I can see I was different. I was given a body that worked for photographic modelling and a photogenic face.”

― Twiggy

― Twinkle Khanna

“The artist doesn’t really think about consequences – he or she does the work, stands back and looks at and thinks, ‘Hmm, that could have worked better like this.’ But as a person who needs to sell tickets to do the next work, one needs to analyze how it does or does not hit its mark.”

― Twyla Tharp

“I’ve been saying I really want to get a 1992 Jeep Sahara, and I’m going to paint it so it looks like the ‘Jurassic Park’ Jeep. I’ve actually seen a guy who did have a Jeep Sahara, and he did make it look like the ‘Jurassic Park’ Jeep. I gave him a thumbs up and said, ‘You’re awesome!’”

― Ty Simpkins

“I enjoy doing fashion shows and transforming myself into different looks for photo shoots.”
