― Nigel Hamilton

“Coconut oil mixed with olive oil is what I put on my body every day; I put rose hip oil on my face. If my hair feels dry, instead of going and buying something filled with chemicals, I put egg whites or avocados or mayonnaise in my hair. I leave it on there for an hour or two and I wash it out.”

― Nikki Reed

― Noam Chomsky

“The one thing my mother did make was what was known at the time as lox and onions and eggs. Now, no one makes it with lox; they make it with nova.

― Nora Ephron

“Back in the 1970s, Kodak tried to give $25m to a black civil rights organisation in Rochester, New York. The company’s shareholders rose up in arms: making this politically charged offering wasn’t the reason they had entrusted Kodak with their money. The donation was withdrawn.”

― Orville Wright

“If somebody wants to go to church because they like the ritual of it and want to sit in silence for a while one time a week, then that’s great. If someone wants to go because they believe that God them and Jesus rose after three days, then that’s great, too.”

“Princess Rose should indeed be a TV movie, assuming something doesn’t go wrong. I don’t know how good a movie it will be, because the way movie folk think is different from the way writers think, and I distrust what isn’t done my way. This is what I call a healthy paranoia.”

― Piers Anthony

“As soon as I get on the plane, I go straight to the bathroom and give myself a little minifacial. MV Organic Skincare does a rose oil spray that is absolutely gorgeous and amazing.”

― Robert Zoellick

“Lebanon was at one time known as a nation that rose above sectarian hatred; Beirut was known as the Paris of the Middle East.

It’s a theory.”

― Sherri Shepherd

“In me the tiger sniffs the rose.”

― Siegfried Sassoon

― Stacey D’Erasmo

“My fragrance is rose and amber, and I was just very specific. A lot of what I’ve done, at the stages I’ve done it, I’ve been a little naive, which brought with it a kind of charm. I did Stella a while ago. It’s now a bit of a classic.”

― Stella McCartney
