101341. But, you know, it really depends on the character. Age doesn’t really matter. – Alison Lohman

101464. My suggestion is that we should first work to ensure the Third World has clean drinking water and sanitation. – Bjorn Lomborg

101466. Think on a 50-year scale, which is a much more natural time-scale for global warming. The US is right now spending about 200 million dollars annually on research into renewable energy. – Bjorn Lomborg

101473. The second thing is, if you want to do something about global warming, you have to think much more long-term. There is something wrong with saying we should start using renewables now, while they are still incredibly expensive. – Bjorn Lomborg

101656. It took a long time to get that film made. I went in for it almost right after or like maybe six or seven months after I had my son and actually auditioned for the Regina King part and they just were like, ‘No, you’re just – you just don’t really seem the part.’ – Nia Long

101670. I know where I’m going to be, I’m not traveling here and there and everywhere. That didn’t necessarily prompt me to it but it definitely opened up my mind of saying okay, maybe this is a good time to do this. – Nia Long

101671. But that we didn’t have the level of experience in terms of working in the industry so you weren’t sure and you needed to see it and this is an industry that the more you work the better you get and that the more opportunities you have the better you get. – Nia Long

101874. Mumbai is home, so there’s no comparison. But then again, New York’s a lot like Mumbai, which is why I choose to live there. It’s fast, crowded (in a good way), the people are friendly and it’s full of color and race, like Mumbai. Unfortunately, the traffic’s also just as bad. – Lavrenti Lopes

101875. Prejudices and preferences exist and will continue to. When you learn how to market yourself, you become less of a victim. – Lavrenti Lopes

101876. The roles for South Asians may have increased by a decent number but there has been a negligible change in the quality of these roles. We still have to fight stereotypes. Fortunately, I’ve had the priviledge of working with people who look beyond the color of your skin. – Lavrenti Lopes

101877. As a child I wanted to be everything from a doctor, lawyer, flight attendant to an IT pro- fessional and could never make up my mind. I figured as an actor I’d get to play all these professions. – Lavrenti Lopes

101878. Everybody says we hated the Yankees. We didn’t hate the Yankees. We just hated the way they beat us. – Al Lopez

101879. The manager is by himself. He can’t mingle with his players. I enjoyed my players, but I could not socialize with them so I spent a lot of time alone in my hotel room. Those four walls kind of close in on you. – Al Lopez

101880. They say anything can happen in a short series. I just didn’t expect it to be that short. – Al Lopez

101881. Managing can be more discouraging than playing, especially when you’re losing because when you’re a player, there are at least individual goals you can shoot for. When you’re a manager all the worries of the team become your worries. – Al Lopez

101882. Do what you love to do and give it your very best. Whether it’s business or baseball, or the theater, or any field. If you don’t love what you’re doing and you can’t give it your best, get out of it. Life is too short. You’ll be an old man before you know it. – Al Lopez

101883. I usually stick out my hand and hope he puts the ball in it. Except the one time I went out to take Early Wynn out. I stuck out my hand and he hit me right in the stomach with the ball. – Al Lopez

101884. I’m delighted. I don’t know of anybody who had a statue built of them while they were living. It’s a great feeling. – Al Lopez

101885. We simply do not understand our place in the universe and have not the courage to admit it. – Barry Lopez

101890. It used to bother me being portrayed as this bitchy person, but now I feel that the public understands me better than some writer. There are people who know who I really am, and that’s good enough for me. – Jennifer Lopez

101891. It’s a shame to call somebody a ‘diva’ simply because they work harder than everybody else. – Jennifer Lopez

101892. J. Lo is also an homage to my fans. That’s what fans call me on the streets, and I like it. So giving the album this title is my way of telling them that this is for them, in appreciation of their support. – Jennifer Lopez

101893. My parents wanted me to be a lawyer. But I don’t think I would have been very happy. I’d be in front of the jury singing. – Jennifer Lopez

101894. People equate sexy with promiscuous. They think that because I’m shaped this way, I must be scandalous – like running around and bringing men into my hotel room. But it’s just the opposite. – Jennifer Lopez

101895. So I sat down with him and portrayed more the side of the character he needed to see. Which is what I do when I go in for an interview for a part I like. As much as you think you’re dealing with creative people, they see you for what your image is out there. – Jennifer Lopez

101896. If you kiss on the first date and it’s not right, then there will be no second date. Sometimes it’s better to hold out and not kiss for a long time. I am a strong believer in kissing being very intimate, and the minute you kiss, the floodgates open for everything else. – Jennifer Lopez

101897. There are certain people that are marked for death. I have my little list of those that treated me unfairly. – Jennifer Lopez

101898. People assume I’m out there having this great life, but money doesn’t erase the pain. When you’re young you barrel through life, making choices without thinking of repercussions.

101901. You get what you give. What you put into things is what you get out of them. – Jennifer Lopez

101902. You have to come in and be that character when you walk into the room. That’s what one of my first acting teachers taught me. You know, don’t go in there being Jennifer and then expect to flip and change, because they’re not going to have that imagination. – Jennifer Lopez

101903. You know, maybe I was just born in the wrong time, but I love all things romantic. Puffy understands that. For my last birthday, he covered my hotel room floor with rose petals and had flowers and candles all over the room. – Jennifer Lopez

101904. The bear is what we all wrestle with. Everybody has their bear in life. It’s about conquering that bear and letting him go. – Jennifer Lopez

101905. I can only speak for myself, and hope people hear my words and see me on television speaking for myself. And, hopefully, they’ll be able to make their own judgment. And at the end of the day, I just want my work to speak for itself. – Jennifer Lopez

101906. Puffy produced four of the tracks on the album. Those are the four songs that are collaborations between Puffy and me. And he gives me my space to work even when we work together, like with my producer and my vocal coach. – Jennifer Lopez

101907. If anyone can figure out how to balance my celebrity and my dual careers in music and film, it’s me. I don’t feel frightened; I feel challenged. – Jennifer Lopez

101909. And I love the idea of spending the whole day in bed with my lover. – Jennifer Lopez

101910. And I never ask what I’m doing the next day. I don’t want to know what I’m doing tomorrow. It’s much too overwhelming. So I just go day by day, without knowing. – Jennifer Lopez

101911. But from the time I was very little, it was something I would do all the time, just sing, dance and act. So it wasn’t something that was fake or contrived as I got older. – Jennifer Lopez

101912. I could serve coffee using my rear as a ledge. – Jennifer Lopez

101913. I don’t get anything for free. I pay for all my beauty treatments. – Jennifer Lopez

101914. I loved the last album, and it was one hundred percent me. But this is like me two years later, who understands a little bit more about music and understands a little bit more about making an album. I wrote a lot more. – Jennifer Lopez

101915. I’d be stupid not to take into consideration that there are certain things people will not consider me for because my name is Lopez. And I know I can do any kind of role. I don’t want anybody to say, Oh, she can’t pull this off. So those are barriers that you have to overcome. – Jennifer Lopez

101916. I was always a singer and a dancer, and I always wanted to be an actress. For me, it’s all just one thing. – Jennifer Lopez

101917. Beauty is only skin deep. I think what’s really important is finding a balance of mind, body and spirit. – Jennifer Lopez

101919. I feel I want to grow as an actress and be better. I want to progress as a singer and songwriter, and produce movies and everything. So there’ll be no time when I feel I’ve done it all. – Jennifer Lopez

101920. I just knew that was what I wanted to do. I was going to perform as a singer; I was going to perform as a dancer, and I was, you know, going to do movies and be an actress. I was going to do it or die trying. That’s what my life was. – Jennifer Lopez

101921. I judge people on how they smell, not how they look. – Jennifer Lopez

101937. The simpler I keep things, the better I play. – Nancy Lopez

101938. A competitor will find a way to win. Competitors take bad breaks and use them to drive themselves just that much harder. Quitters take bad breaks and use them as reasons to give up. It’s all a matter of pride. – Nancy Lopez

101939. Do your best, one shot at a time and then move on. Remember that golf is just a game. – Nancy Lopez
