164303. I’ve been working on Barb for a while. I looked at her as a sort of every woman. She’s incredibly strong; she’s incredibly generous. She’s seemingly insane because she is in the situation of a polygamous relationship, but she had definite reasons to do it. – Jeanne Tripplehorn

164304. I’ve had the same friends for ten, fifteen years. – Jeanne Tripplehorn

164305. It was difficult every ten days having a new director. I’m a real collaborator and, as an actor, I want to be directed. It’s hard for me to shift gears. – Jeanne Tripplehorn

164307. Finally, after a lot of searching and digging, it was simply the love of family that gave me a road into the character.

164310. But we’re all so different, we’re different ages; we’re not vying for the same roles. There’s no competition, there’s really kind of a sisterhood, on and off the set, you know? – Jeanne Tripplehorn

164311. But on the other hand, I talked to a woman who was a working woman, and it was actually great for her, because she had her husband one week of the month and the other three weeks, while he was with his other wives, she got to pursue what she wanted to do. – Jeanne Tripplehorn

164312. But I don’t think that it’s a form of family that I would be comfortable in. I’ve found a way to this character and this family, but I still believe that a marriage is between two people and not seven or three. – Jeanne Tripplehorn

164325. No man thinks there is much ado about nothing when the ado is about himself. – Anthony Trollope

164336. It is hard to rescue a man from the slough of luxury and idleness combined. If anything can do it, it is a cradle filled annually. – Anthony Trollope

164381. I do not know whether there be, as a rule, more vocal expression of the sentiment of love between a man and a woman, than there is between two thrushes. They whistle and call to each other, guided by instinct rather than by reason. – Anthony Trollope

164386. You can’t be too old to be a writer, but you can definitely be too young! – Joanna Trollope

164387. I plot the first 5 or 6 chapters quite minutely, and also the end. So I know where I am going but not how I’m going to get there, which gives characters the chance to develop organically, as happens in real life as you get to know a person. – Joanna Trollope

164388. I don’t always set stories in villages, more often in towns. But always in smallish communities because the characters’ actions are more visible there, and the dramatic tension is heightened. – Joanna Trollope

164390. I’m a third done into a new book but sorry – I have a superstition about talking about it! – Joanna Trollope

164398. The end may justify the means as long as there is something that justifies the end. – Leon Trotsky

164404. Let a man find himself, in distinction from others, on top of two wheels with a chain – at least in a poor country like Russia – and his vanity begins to swell out like his tires. In America it takes an automobile to produce this effect. – Leon Trotsky
