Before I even knew what that half of my family did, I was interested in performing. I remember being seven years old and up on a stage and loving it. I've always adored it. Not just acting, but the whole process of writing and directing movies, everything that has to do with that part of life. Maybe it's in my blood. ~ Jack Huston
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Jack Huston
Above all, I would like to be remembered as a man who was selfless, who strove and worried so that others could share the glory, and who built up a family of people who could hold their heads up high and say 'We're Liverpool'. ~ Bill Shankly
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Bill Shankly
The inherent prejudice in unnaturally-produced nationalism causes a form of cultural blindness, which prevents us from seeing the obvious ways we could co-exist in the world as a co-operative human family. ~ Bryant McGill
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Bryant McGill
Someone has to puncture the prevailing fiction that we're a "family" here, we "associates" and our "servant leaders," held together solely by our commitment to the "guests." After all, you'd need a lot stronger word than dysfunctional to describe a family where a few people get to eat at the table while the rest - the "associates" and all the dark-skinned seamstresses and factory workers worldwide who make the things we sell - lick up the drippings from the floor: psychotic would be closer to the mark. ~ Barbara Ehrenreich
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Barbara Ehrenreich
For sure, they don't teach you this in history class, but in colonial times, the person who got left in the stocks overnight was nothing less than fair game for everybody to nail. Men or women, anybody bent over had no way of knowing who was doing the ram job, and this was the real reason you never wanted to end up here unless you had a family member or a friend who'd stand with you the whole time. To protect you. To watch your ass, for real. ~ Chuck Palahniuk
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
If I love you, I will carry for you all your pain, I will assume for you all your debts (in every definition of the word), I will protect you from your own insecurity, I will protect upon you all sorts of good qualities that you have never actually cultivated in yourself and I will buy Christmas presents for your entire family. I will give you the sun and the rain, and if they are not available, I will give you a sun check and a rain check. I will give you all this and more, until I get so exhausted and depleted that the only way I can recover my energy is by becoming infatuated with someone else. ~ Elizabeth Gilbert
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
But, it didn't matter that my mother suspected and knew that I was a writer. It was expected of me to take care of my share of the responsibility of making our way in the world as a family. In those days, also, it was unheard of, by us certainly, that to get any help, even from members of our own family, let alone from the government, which would have been disgraceful. Thank God that that kind of folly in thinking is obsolete. There is a temptation to feel, 'Well, we all made it; why can't these other poor people make it?' And, of course, nothing is more than stupid than that attitude. I must confess that I find that attitude among many countrymen of my own who do find themselves taking undue pride in their own sense of ability - of being equal to any situation, and of seeing it through and improving it, and so on. And then, putting that against other people who don't have that, and thereby implying that the other people are lazy. Not taking into account the whole different structure and identity and a people who have survived for centuries under very harsh conditions and members of a very great culture, and I am talking about the Indians, to begin with, in the Valley - the San Joaquin Valley, in Fresno, in Tulare, and the mountains, and there are many tribes of them, of different kinds, and I am talking about, also, the Mestizos, the mixtures of Mexican, Spaniards with Indians, making the Mexican. And I am talking about any minority which is considered by anybody as bein ~ William Saroyan
Birkmeyer Family quotes by William Saroyan
I've always wanted to do a family movie. ~ Adam Sandler
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Adam Sandler
When doing family entertainment, you don't actually worry about kids. You know what you can't do. But in terms of sensibility and sophistication and wit and ambition, aim for your own taste level, and kids will - if they're interested in the subject matter - be glad that you did. ~ Nina Jacobson
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Nina Jacobson
Apparently, one in five people in the world are Chinese. And there are five people in my family, so it must be one of them. It's either my mum or my dad. Or my older brother, Colin. Or my younger brother, Ho-Chan-Chu. But I think it's Colin. ~ Tim Vine
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Tim Vine
Perhaps people felt there was nothing more they could do, you know? After all, how can someone be helped who doesn't see the need? A Christian counselor I saw for a while described such situations as, "a White Elephant everyone can see but no one wants to deal with; everyone hopes the problem will just go away on its own."

Just like with my mom.

Back then it seemed women were almost expected to go a little loopy sometimes. After all we're the ones with raging hormones that get out of whack – by our periods, PMS or pregnancy and childbirth – and cause craziness and bizarre behavior. And because of those uncontrollable hormones, women are also more emotional and predisposed to depression. These are things my mom was actually told by her parents, her family, her husbands and friends... even her doctor. Eventually, she made herself believe that her erratic behavior stemmed from PMS, not mania or alcohol. ~ Chynna T. Laird
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Chynna T. Laird
The healing process kicks into gear with with the words "This is what you did to me." That statement is not gentle or polite; it's absolutely direct. In fact, I know that seeing it might feel like a punch in the stomach. I deliberately removed the distancing veil of "objectivity" from the words "This is what you did" by adding 'to me'. ~ Susan Forward
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Susan Forward
Cancer has shown me what family is. It showed me a love that I never knew really existed. ~ Michael Douglas
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Michael Douglas
There are very few solid family films. A lot of the writing is awful. ~ Chevy Chase
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Chevy Chase
We sought a tribal society, to be close to each other, not to sit behind a television with our families and not see our families, not just to watch the evening news and the inane comedies designed to pacify the multitudes, but rather to explore ourselves. ~ Frederick Lenz
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Frederick Lenz
We should all just face reality and stop taking our meals together. ~ Jonathan Tropper
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Jonathan Tropper
A woman's mission centered on home and family - vital spheres of ministry to be sure, but only a slice of the vast mission God originally cast by calling women to rule and subdue the earth. ~ Carolyn Custis James
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Carolyn Custis James
The worst part ever is discoursing about the abuse to anyone you trust in the family or friends and when they prefer not to believe in you, that feeling of being deserted by people you trusted and spoke to is even more painful than the whole trauma of the abuse and insult. ~ Patricia Dsouza
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Patricia Dsouza
Everybody ticks differently, but family is very important for me. ~ Curtis Joseph
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Curtis Joseph
The truth is that Islam itself was a barbaric reaction against that very humane complexity that is really a Christian character; that idea of balance in the deity, as of balance in the family, that makes that creed a sort of sanity, and that sanity the soul of civilisation. ~ G.K. Chesterton
Birkmeyer Family quotes by G.K. Chesterton
The radical feminists succeeded in undermining the traditional family and convincing women that professional accomplishments are the key to happiness. ~ Rick Santorum
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Rick Santorum
The reason Christians get married "before the church" is not to give a religious appearance to the ceremony but because Christians hold the marriage covenant in the context of the community of the body of Christ. Seeking the support and counsel of family is an extension of this. ~ Matt Chandler
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Matt Chandler
In the Latina/o culture, blessing is a big deal. Growing up, I was brought up to see the blessings that surrounded me and my family. As a child, after I'd said my prayers, my mom would send me to bed with a blessing for a good night's rest. Whenever I would leave my abuelita's (grandmother's) house, she would tell me, "Dios te bendiga, mijito" ("God bless you, my little one"). In my family and in many Latina/o households, the women are the vessels of God's blessing, and thus bestowers and distributors of this blessing to their families. To this day, even though I am grown and have two children of my own, whenever I travel somewhere distant or am undertaking a major project, my mother will sit me down, lay hands on me, and say a prayer of blessing. ~ Francisco J. Garcia Jr.
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Francisco J. Garcia Jr.
I must remind you that starving a child is violence. Neglecting school children is violence. Punishing a mother and her family is violence. Discrimination against a working man is violence. Ghetto housing is violence. Ignoring medical need is violence. Contempt for poverty is violence. ~ Coretta Scott King
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Coretta Scott King
To others in my family, the dog was something of a sacred object that had prolonged my father's life and helped to steady the rest of us. He was a fine dog, and after him, my father had no other dog. ~ Norman Maclean
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Norman Maclean
Productive collaborations between family and school, therefore, will demand that parents and teachers recognize the critical importance of each other's participation in the life of the child. This mutuality of knowledge, understanding, and empathy comes not only with a recognition of the child as the central purpose for the collaboration but also with a recognition of the need to maintain roles and relationships with children that are comprehensive, dynamic, and differentiated. ~ Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot
The few people who ask to have their photographs with me, I almost always say yes, except for a few circumstances, like when my family is around. ~ John Hodgman
Birkmeyer Family quotes by John Hodgman
If you are far away from your lover and family, if you have lost someone, if you feel a bit displaced in your own life: these stories are for you. ~ Audrey Niffenegger
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Audrey Niffenegger
When you're close to your family, you want to be close to them. ~ Carlos Beltran
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Carlos Beltran
The relationship moved fast, I was swept off my feet. He seemed so perfect, everything I had ever dreamt of. His family lovebombed me and used my son to hook me. From the start the unusual family ways triggered my intuition. My concerns were swept under and distractions filled the cracks. ~ Tracy Malone
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Tracy Malone
I discovered that there is Indian blood in my ancestry on my father's side - a fact that had not been talked about in my family. No wonder I've often been cast in exotic roles - Indian princesses, Russian revolutionaries, Algerians, Gypsies and Greeks. ~ Diana Quick
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Diana Quick
A family that knows how to play together has the tools to stay together. ~ Warren Farrell
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Warren Farrell
I also discovered that I was a poet. From the standpoint of one's family this is probably a regrettable discovery ... ~ Dorothy Cottrell
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Dorothy Cottrell
It is well known that the black race is the most oppressed and most exploited of the human family. It is well known that the spread of capitalism and the discovery of the New World had as an immediate result the rebirth of slavery which was, for centuries, a scourge for the Negroes and a bitter disgrace for mankind. What everyone does not perhaps know, is that after sixty-five years of so-called emancipation, American Negroes still endure atrocious moral and material sufferings, of which the most cruel and horrible is the custom of lynching. ~ Ho Chi Minh
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Ho Chi Minh
One time, I came off stage and a guy named Roman Decare, God rest his soul, he was a comic. 'Louie, if you do that family stuff, and you're a clean comic on stage, you'll become famous.' And, for some reason, a switch clicked, and I started doing the family stuff, and it became a giant part of my life. ~ Louie Anderson
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Louie Anderson
...A canonical leader is someone whose exemplary rule might have appeared to be for the alleviation of the pains and miseries of a particular group, but which in reality is for the advancement of humanism... ~ Janvier Chouteu-Chando
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
We're pieces on a chessboard and we make our moves when it's our turn. If we don't, our decisions are made for us. ~ A.P. Jensen
Birkmeyer Family quotes by A.P. Jensen
Contrary to what everyone thinks, in my family, we didn't talk about politics at home. ~ Marion Marechal-Le Pen
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Marion Marechal-Le Pen
The dog that I was given on The Hills for Christmas is with my best friend's family. ~ Heidi Montag
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Heidi Montag
My family believe you should never be flashy about anything. Maybe that handicapped me a little bit, that extreme humility. ~ Kelly Reilly
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Kelly Reilly
None of our lives were perfect, we all had faced bumps in the road, loss, and heartache. But together we made our own mismatched kind of family. ~ Elizabeth Dennis
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Elizabeth Dennis
For my 16th birthday, my family took me to L'Auberge de L'Ill, which was family-run but had three Michelin stars. It was a revelation. After that meal, I realised this is what I want to do. ~ Jean-Georges Vongerichten
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Jean-Georges Vongerichten
I came to architecture from building. Because my father was a builder, everybody was - and is - a builder in my family. ~ Renzo Piano
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Renzo Piano
The bond of brotherhood is we are sisters and brothers in love. ~ Lailah Gifty Akita
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
I'm sure everyone's got their back story. I don't come from a place of where I was tortured and needed to let something out. I came from a very happy home. I was a little out of control at times. But my family ... we all liked to be funny, we all liked to make each other laugh. ~ Adam Sandler
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Adam Sandler
I am for deporting all recent unattached illegals. I am for a local citizen panel to consider certification of those who have been here 25 years and have family and community and have been law-abiding and tax-paying. ~ Newt Gingrich
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Newt Gingrich
The family took all the seeds from the garden and then they buried Nokomis there, deeply, wrapped in her blanket with gifts and tobacco for the spirit world. They buried her simply. There was no stone, no grave house, nothing to mark where she lay except the exuberant and drying growth of her garden.
Nokomis had said:
I do not need a marker of my passage, for my creator knows where I am. I do not want anyone to cry. I lived a good life, my hair turned to snow, I saw my great grandchildren, I grew my garden. That is all. ~ Louise Erdrich
Birkmeyer Family quotes by Louise Erdrich
