Actually, I take it as a compliment.
by Calista Flockhart

Actually, I take it as a compliment.
Diva is a derivative of divine.
That's quite a title to carry around.
- Calista Flockhart

I'm close with my parents.
I have a lot of acquaintances, but my very good close
friends are few I can count my very good friends on one hand.
And that's how I like it to be.
- Calista Flockhart

I like to hike with my dog, Webster.
It helps clear my mind.
- Calista Flockhart

I am definitely a dog person.
I feel like Webster and I are very much alike.
- Calista Flockhart

 

What I say now is that the way the world underestimates
me will be my greatest weapon.
People pat me on the head, and I go to myself,
oh, and aren't they going to be surprised.
- Calista Flockhart

I've had a couple of long relationships.
And I've had a couple of shorter relationships.
- Calista Flockhart

They can be a hit and then in three years,
gone.

It's a double-edged sword.
- Calista Flockhart

And when I first came out from New York,
I hadn't driven in a long time.
Now I'm like Joe Speedster.
- Calista Flockhart

I've been doing a lot of hiking, which I love.
- Calista Flockhart

I don't watch the show - only bits and pieces of all of them.
The only one I sat through was the pilot.
- Calista Flockhart

The only real indulgence was buying a house.
That was a pretty big step.
- Calista Flockhart

But I don't like to, tell people how old I am.
I like that to be a mystery.
- Calista Flockhart

I do wish my breasts were bigger.
Not big...
but less small.
- Calista Flockhart

I'm not going to change for anybody.

- Calista Flockhart

I don't particularly see her as a whiner.
One week she's tough, the next she's really weak.
I love that.
She's human.
- Calista Flockhart

But it kills me, this fascination with celebrities' personal lives.
- Calista Flockhart

It's so funny how my name has always been such a big deal.
When I was growing up, my family was always moving.
I had to meet new people all the time.
And they'd laugh.
- Calista Flockhart

Webster and I are very aloof.
The two of us go and sit there by ourselves.
I sit by myself in the corner with my book and the newspaper.
He kind of runs around a little bit,
and then he goes and sits on top of the picnic table.
He never plays with other little dogs.
- Calista Flockhart

So people think I'm lying about my age all the time?
It's the records that are wrong.
I've never told anyone how old I am.
The minute they ask me, I say 'That's none of your business.'
So that means I've never once lied about my age.
Now that's true!
- Calista Flockhart

Sometimes when you play a character,
you can feel it in your body.
And I felt like I had characteristics of my dog:
the way Webster moves,
the way he holds his head.
I kind of adapted it into this part unconsciously.
- Calista Flockhart

Well, I don't think I've ever consciously come up with tricks and tools to,
kind of, hide.
I do think I'm a bit more vigilant, in terms of safety issues and things.
And sometimes it is kind of nice to try to hold onto your anonymity.
- Calista Flockhart

I think that the character that I'm playing now is
so fundamentally different than Ally that I haven't
I haven't felt like I had to worry about it at all.
But I definitely wanted to make a different choice.
- Calista Flockhart

A lot of the tabloid stories are written so well,
they're very clever and very funny.
But you have to focus on what's really important and not read them -
don't dive into it and don't get caught up in it.
- Calista Flockhart

Just stop it. Seriously.
Whatever it is. Just stop it.
If only for an hour, a day, a week.
Stop doing it long enough to get a glimpse
of what the change would actually look like.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

As we let our light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence actually liberates others.
- Marianne Williamson

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
- Marianne Williamson

Feel Unity with Spirit and All Creation
All things share the same breath the
beast, the tree, the man... the air
shares its spirit with all the life it supports.
- Chief Seattle [actually written by screenwriter Ted Perry in 1972]

NO ONE is really different;
each of us is actually a member of the human race.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

who have convictions that are unpopular.
-Bono

I actually enjoy being out of my depth - I thrive on it.
- Bono

In a bad marriage, friends are the invisible glue.
If we have enough friends, we may go on for years,
intending to leave, talking about leaving -
instead of actually getting up and leaving.
- Erica Jong

"Mother Teresa Prayer"
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
... Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you
of selfish, ulterior motives;
... Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some
false friends and some true enemies;
... Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
... Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
... Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
... Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
... Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
... Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
We can do no great things - only small things with great love.
- although commonly attributed to Mother Teresa,
who kept a copy of this prayer on
the wall of her Calcutta orphanage,
this prayer was actually written by Kent Keith.

Each of us holds a different image of God.
There are as many perspectives on
the nature of God as there are people.
However much any of us may choose to argue,
or to fight and kill, for our point of view,
the nature of God is an unanswerable question.
Perhaps there is a specific answer,
that we will never learn - in this lifetime.
Perhaps the nature of God is so complex and multifaceted
that each view of God describes an aspect of the complex whole.
Or perhaps the nature of God is actually defined by our beliefs.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Every known fact in natural science was divined
by the presentiment of somebody,

My body actually looks like an old banana,
but it's fine.
- Mike Piazza

I think one of the finest gifts I can give
my friends in the holiday season is to pause
with a long enough quality to actually SEE them.
My calm, unhurried presence communicates
this gift of a message, "I see you. I recognize you.
I remember our times of together
and am contributing right now to another quality memory.
I value you and honor and take the time,
right this moment to pause long enough to truly notice you."
- Mary Anne Radmacher

- Anita Desai

I genuinely don't know how many albums I'm going to
