For me, college wasn't a breeze. I had 8 o'clock classes, I worked from 3 to 11 at the Settlement House. On weekends, if Northwestern Bell needed me, I'd troubleshoot for them, and I had a steady girl. God!
My mother, Dorothy Watson, had met my father in a Greek class at Northwestern University.
God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers.
Since God had commanded it, it was necessary that I do it. Since God commanded it, even if I had a hundred fathers and mothers, even if I had been a King's daughter, I would have gone nevertheless.
A spirit is, like, your mother, my dad, who've made it. They can come around, but they come around in a loving way because they've already made it to God. Most people make it.
My mother used to tell me man gives the award, God gives the reward. I don't need another plaque.
The nature of God is a circle of which the center is everywhere and the circumference is nowhere.
God is one, greatest of gods and men, not like mortals in body or thought.
Necessity is the mother of taking chances.
In the mean time I worship God, laying every wrong action under an interdict which I endeavour to respect, and I loathe the wicked without doing them any injury.
I was not extremely patriotic about Mother Russia. I played their game, pretending. You have to deal with, you know, party people, KGB. Horrifying.
The universe is one of God's thoughts.
Einstein, stop telling God what to do!
I think it's better when you're natural, when you just do whatever you want, instead of doing classes where I see all these other people holding back because they've been trained with certain skills or techniques. I'm like, whatever.
A mother's life, you see, is one long succession of dramas, now soft and tender, now terrible. Not an hour but has its joys and fears.
You say a new era in art is preparing; you sensed it coming; continue your studies without weakening. God will do the rest.
Where no gods are, spectres rule.
I've looked on many women with lust. I've committed adultery in my heart many times. God knows I will do this and forgives me.
Fate is never too generous even to its favorites. Rarely do the gods grant a mortal more than one immortal deed.
It is the privilege of the gods to want nothing, and of godlike men to want little.
Patriotism is usually stronger than class hatred, and always stronger than internationalism.
As flies to wanton boys, are we to the gods; they kill us for their sport.
Never lose an opportunity to see anything that is beautiful. It is God's handwriting ~ a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, every fair sky, every fair flower.
I moved out at 18. I always studied classes and trained a lot, you know. I think nowadays is such a different time because there's so many channels promoting the celebrity aspect of things.
My life collapsed. People ran from me because suddenly it was 'Oh my God! It's over for her now!' (On her split with Tom Cruise).
