When all the girls were getting all made up and getting into all that girl stuff in junior high I was out playing softball or touch football with the guys. -Catherine Bell

Shows were very different then – even as the headliner we did a very short set by today's standards and sound systems were really primitive. But the girls made it all worthwhile! -Peter Asher

If I go into a club now, all the blonde girls leave my corner and all the black girls come into my corner. It's as if I'm racist towards white girls! -Boris Becker

Given that there was that era of girl group music and it's still very popular, but I think if you looked at the chart from that time you would see many more men on it. Because the industry, they were catering to young girls. I mean, that's what they thought their audience was. -Lesley Gore

One can make a case that says that since 85% of children being brought up in single family homes are being brought up by women that about 85% of elementary school teachers should be males to balance out the feminization that the boys and girls receive. -Warren Farrell

There are a lot of girls that will try to hook up with you, then try to have your kid because they figure they're going to get all this money from you. -Dustin Diamond

I grew up in conservative rural Kansas in the 1950s when it was expected that girls would not have a life outside the home, so educating them was a waste of time. -Sara Paretsky

There are eight girls in the house in which I am living, and practically all of them are good looking. You can realize that I am kept busy. -Franz Schubert

I just cash in on the fact that I'm good looking, and I've got a nice figure and girls like me. -Sid Vicious

I talk so much about sex that girls just want to meet me. -Joe Rogan

It was pretty extensive – we worked out 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, for 3 months, which I think is more than anybody in the Olympics. I thought well I don't need this, the girls need it, but it was a gift. -David Carradine

I get a little jealous of these actor boys. They walk into a club, and in two seconds flat there are swarms of girls who are wanting so badly to touch them or just say hello. That's not the case with me, or any other girl I know. -Claire Danes

There are plenty of beautiful girls who don't photograph well. -Lauren Hutton

In the end, I play a lot of friends and I really think it's about time that some ethnic girls get out there in the lead part. So we're developing something. -Rachel True

Fred Astaire was a more formal, trained dancer who loved waltzing and only danced with the girls. -Leslie Caron

It's an interesting time that way. It's hard to meet good girls down here. It seems like they're all after something and interested in their own lives. -Scott Speedman

I see it as more of a teenage activity than, you know, she's only 11, but you know, I think it's great that she knows so many girls who want to play music. And I see it more as a teen activity than I do as going into music. -Kim Gordon

When I did start writing books, I didn't realize it, but the girls that grew up watching the show became moms. -Lisa Whelchel

Every year I teach dozens of students at the University of Birmingham. Most of the students on the gender and sexuality courses are women. I guess this is because the boys don't think that gender applies to them: that it's a subject for girls. -Louise Brown

I don't know, Y'know, I always wanted to be one of those cheerleader girls and I never was that, and I was never sort of cute and perky, and I always thought it was fun to be cute and perky, and those, I don't know what those girls are doing now. -Katey Sagal

So I was determined to use my last two years in college doing something I thought I would enjoy, which was acting. And it was probably because there was girls over in the drama school too, you know? -James Earl Jones

The girls are a complete joy and I love their passion. They argue with me like mad and I love that too. -Bob Geldof

A large part of the present anxiety to improve the education of girls and women is also due to the conviction that the political disabilities of women will not be maintained. -Millicent Fawcett

Around 7 years old, we girls took dancing lessons, joined the Brownies, the Girl Scouts, the 4H Club. -Ruth Buzzi

I would say that the war correspondent gets more drinks, more girls, better pay, and greater freedom than the soldier, but at this stage of the game, having the freedom to choose his spot and being allowed to be a coward and not be executed for it is his torture. -Robert Capa

There's apparently soccer leagues that they've set up with young Indian girls. -Parminder Nagra

In London there was an article about all these girls bending it like Beckham, and in India there's this big wave of girls playing football. Wow! I can't believe a movie's done this! -Parminder Nagra

I've lost some friends. A lot of the girls. -Stacie Orrico

If you think about it now, it's kind of ridiculous. All these hot girls on Baywatch in tiny little red bathing suits running around saving lives. -Carmen Electra

I think that weddings have probably been crashed since the beginning of time. Cavemen crashed them. You go to meet girls. It makes sense. -Christopher Walken

I have three girls, and I say the same thing to them. I'm not involved in their careers because I've learned that it's important for them to stand on their own two feet. They'll feel better and prouder of themselves if they do. -Diana Ross

After I had been working as a cap maker for three years it began to dawn on me that we girls needed an organization. The men had organized already, and had gained some advantages, but the bosses had lost nothing, as they took it out on us. -Rose Schneiderman

Then came a big strike. About 100 girls went out. The result was a victory, which netted us – I mean the girls – $2 increase in our wages on the average. -Rose Schneiderman

Of course, we knew that this meant an attack on the union. The bosses intended gradually to get rid of us, employing in our place child labor and raw immigrant girls who would work for next to nothing. -Rose Schneiderman

There are a lot of homes for boys, but very few for girls, that is why I chose to do for girls. -Miriam Makeba

It's easy for women to say they don't understand and ask a man for help. As the saying goes, boys play with toys, and girls play with boys. -Tom Stewart

There's been a lot of speculation about every single girl I'm with and it actually does quite irritate me after a while, more so because it's a complete pain for the girls. -Prince William

I've got high standards when it comes to boys. As my dad says, all girls should! I'm from the South – Tennessee, to be exact – and down there, we're all about southern hospitality. I know that if I like a guy, he better be nice, and above all, my dad has to approve of him! -Miley Cyrus

I think it's fine for girls to ask boys out. I actually prefer it. -Zac Efron

I like outgoing girls with a lovely smile and beautiful eyes. -Corbin Bleu

I get nervous around girls for the first time. Once I'm in, I can take the reins and go. It's just the initial approach I'm really bad at. -Jensen Ackles

More men than women like 'Strangers With Candy'. Pretty girls don't like the show. They don't like to see an ugly lady. -Amy Sedaris

I don't get a whole lot out of the romance thing, but I realize girls do. So I'll go out of my way to make them feel romanced. -James Lafferty

I've got more junk in the trunk than most 5-foot-1 blonde girls, and I like it. -Kristen Bell

All girls hit that phase where they like the bad boy. I grew out of that really young and I have a wonderful guy in my life who's not a bad boy at all. I like the satiric, consistent nice guy. -Kristen Bell

Being a teenager is an amazing time and a hard time. It's when you make your best friends – I have girls who will never leave my heart and I still talk to. You get the best and the worst as a teen. You have the best friendships and the worst heartbreaks. -Sophia Bush

I like low-maintenance girls, but at the same time, classy. She needs to take care of herself. But also be a girl who isn't afraid to get sweaty and play basketball, so it's cool if she's a tomboy. -Chris Brown

I love attention. If I see a gang of girls? That makes me dance even more! -Chris Brown

My biggest problem in middle school was catty girls, cliques, and trying to figure out if I wanted to be a part of one of those, just figuring out who I was and all that. -Lindsey Shaw

I went to an all-girls pre school where everyone went off to Harvard or Yale, and I had zero interest in doing so. I think they thought I was on drugs. There was a neighboring all-boys school, so we'd get together and do dumb things. It was your typical Catholic-American upbringing. -Katherine Moennig

I didn't get along with Lindsay Lohan on 'Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen', but you have to consider that we were 16-year-old girls. I haven't seen Lindsay since then, but I imagine she's grown and become a different person. I know I have. -Megan Fox

Honestly, I like everything, boyish girls, girlish boys, the heavy and the skinny. -Angelina Jolie

I think when you're a bigger star you get many good scripts sent to you, and you have to choose which one you're going to gravitate toward, but I just try to gravitate toward the best-written one that's been thrown my way after a lot of girls have passed on it. -Amanda Peet

My first job in all honesty is going to continue to be mom-in-chief. Making sure that in this transition, which will be even more of a transition for the girls… that they are settled and that they know they will continue to be the center of our universe. -Michelle Obama

Exercise is really important to me – it's therapeutic. So if I'm ever feeling tense or stressed or like I'm about to have a meltdown, I'll put on my iPod and head to the gym or out on a bike ride along Lake Michigan with the girls. -Michelle Obama

Yes. Otherwise I could have done a lot of Hollywood movies. After Crouching Tiger I got a lot of offers, but I turned them down because they were all victim roles – poor girls sold to America to be a wife or whatever. I know I have the ability to go deeper, to take on more original roles than that. -Zhang Ziyi

Cheryl Cole and Katy Perry are two of the hottest girls in the world – and so normal and funny with it. If I was a few years older they are the kind of girls I'd like to date. I want a younger version of Cheryl and Katy – a mixture of the two would be hot. -Justin Bieber

My mom is going to kill me for talking about sleeping with people. But I don't want to put myself in the position where I'm in a monogamous relationship right now. I'm not dating just one person. 'Sex and the City' changed everything for me because those girls would sleep with so many people. -Lindsay Lohan

Some girls are just born with glitter in their veins. -Paris Hilton

I'm not the same person I was. I used to act dumb. It was an act. I am 26 years old, and that act is no longer cute. It is not who I am, nor do I want to be that person for the young girls who looked up to me. I know now that I can make a difference, that I have the power to do that. -Paris Hilton

I was hugely relieved to discover there was a purpose for girls with loud voices. -Betty Buckley

I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles. -Audrey Hepburn

I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and… I believe in miracles. -Audrey Hepburn

The Beliebers have done some pretty crazy stuff. Last week, the night before I was due to do a show in Germany, four girls went into a dumpster so they could sneak into the building. They climbed in and hid. When the guys working on the truck started getting the garbage they found them straight away. It was crazy. -Justin Bieber

By the time I was in high school, Roe v. Wade had passed, so that was also happening; girls were getting pregnant and getting abortions – and that happened in my school too. -Annette Bening

I remember riding my bike down the boardwalk with nowhere to go and looking at the girls. It was really innocent. -Mark Ruffalo

You don't have to listen to those mean girls. They're just there to make you upset and make you feel bad about yourself. And you know, inside, they feel bad about themselves too. But they don't wanna admit it to anybody. -Amanda Seyfried

I miss Saturday morning, rolling out of bed, not shaving, getting into my car with my girls, driving to the supermarket, squeezing the fruit, getting my car washed, taking walks. -Barack Obama

I truly don't know why the boys are getting all the votes – it could be because they are really amazing, and that's all there is to it. They're really, really good and every single boy deserves to be in the competition right now, and so do the two girls. -Pia Toscano

I would never describe Charlotte as a prude – maybe at the start, but that was in comparison to the other girls. She wasn't willing to do the stuff they were doing – and I mean, thank goodness! -Kristin Davis

I've always felt so different from how I look. I meet so many pretty girls who are like, 'Here I am! Don't you want me because I look good?' That concept is so weird to me. I want to know, 'What else do you have going on?' -Malin Akerman

When I was fourteen and first started going out, I always wanted to be the opposite of everyone else. So I would go to the club in a polo T-shirt and pants and sneakers and a hat on backward, just so I would not be dressed like other girls. -Rihanna

I haven't really decided to be an actor yet! I started doing plays when I was about 15 or 16. I only did it because my dad saw a bunch of pretty girls in a restaurant and he asked them where they came from and they said drama group. He said, 'Son, that is where you need to go.' -Robert Pattinson

Masses of girls identified with Bella in a really profound way, for want of a better word. The connection that I've seen people have – I've seen it physically. It's the characters they're flipping for. -Kristen Stewart

Girls are scary. Large groups of girls scare the crap out of me. -Kristen Stewart

I'm really proud of Twilight. I think it's a good movie. It was hard to do, and I think it turned out pretty good. But I don't take much credit for it. So when you show up at these places, and there's literally like a thousand girls and they're all screaming your name, you're like, why? You don't feel like you deserve it. -Kristen Stewart

Nothing's sacred anymore. Those girls and I got so close. They were painting me naked every day for months. It was kind of like going to a really bizarre sleepover. It's what you guys imagine we do: One naked girl and seven pairs of hands all over her. -Jennifer Lawrence

When Andrew went with the girls, we were talking all morning and he was saying, 'It's okay. Just remember we had such a good day. Our wedding was so perfect.' Because we're such a unit together. He made me feel very part of the day on April the 29th. -Sarah Ferguson

I came from a big family – two brothers and two sisters. So, there were always a ton of boys around and a ton of girls around. So, I grew up comfortable with both sexes. -Blake Lively

I like looking nice, but I always put comfort over fashion. I don't find thin girls attractive; be happy and healthy. I've never had a problem with the way I look. I'd rather have lunch with my friends than go to a gym. -Adele

I like pin-up girls. I'm more of a boy than a girl. I'm not a lesbian, though – not before a sambuca anyway. -Amy Winehouse

I like the dark, mysterious, maybe even gothic type girls. They have to have a good personality too! I'm very picky! -Shia LaBeouf

I am an example of what is possible when girls from the very beginning of their lives are loved and nurtured by people around them. I was surrounded by extraordinary women in my life who taught me about quiet strength and dignity. -Michelle Obama

I've not got a girlfriend at the moment. Somebody said, 'Do you worry girls are just giving you attention because of who you are?' I was like, 'I'm 17, it's wonderful.' -Daniel Radcliffe

It's not that I find it hard to meet girls – they do come up and chat me up from time to time. Sometimes I'm interested, I tend not to go for the prettier ones. I prefer the quirkier types. -Rupert Grint

I like me Italian girls; half Halle Berry, half Penelope Cruz sort of thing! -Tom Felton

I absolutely love the fact that they are looking out for me and it's not really even just Charles and Dave. Out on the road, I'm one of very few girls out here. There's a lot of pseudo big brothers who are keeping an eye out on me. -Hillary Scott

For young girls, whom I meet a lot when I travel around the country, it will be a big thing. It will really show them that there's no post in Denmark that a girl can't aspire to. -Helle Thorning-Schmidt

I met a lot of young girls modelling and they were like, 'Oh, I'm running around town and people are taking my picture', while I was saving receipts and learning how to be self-employed. -Christina Hendricks

I've never really been one of those girls who's scared of showing a bit of flesh. -Anna Paquin

I got bullied in high school. A lot of girls were so mean to me because their boyfriends wanted to hang out with me and my girls, so they pretty much bullied me to the point where I was crying at night. -Nicole Polizzi

I'm not one to run around with different girls. I like someone that makes me feel good and that I can make feel good. -David Arquette

Because I was the first super-elite, the press caught on and started calling me a supermodel. So in that sense, I guess I'm the first. But, in my opinion, there were girls that could have been called supermodels before that, if the term was in existence. -Carol Alt

These girls come; they last one season; they're completely used up and dried out and sent back home. That's not how to make a life. I want a girl to come in knowing full well what she's getting into and being able to deal and make decisions that will create a career. -Carol Alt

Usually, girls weren't encouraged to go to college and major in math and science. My high school calculus teacher, Ms. Paz Jensen, made math appealing and motivated me to continue studying it in college. -Ellen Ochoa

We just moved out of L.A. because I didn't want to be raising my girls in the city. They're in public school now and they're in a normal situation. We're sort of settling into that. It's just a choice. -Jennie Garth

I could have probably raised them in L.A. and they would have been great and had so many things at their fingertips and been exposed to so many things. But we travel a lot, so I don't think that moving out of town is sheltering the girls at all. Maybe protecting them a little bit more, trying to prolong their youth. -Jennie Garth

The Women's Sports Foundation holds a unique position in developing opportunities for girls and women of all abilities to be active whether recreationally or competitively, and I'm excited to help lead the organization to impact even more lives. It is an honor to continue to build the legacy created by Billie Jean King and all of our leaders. -Angela Ruggiero

Growing up, others girls wanted to dance and help their mums with the cooking. I liked to play soccer with the boys. Or I'd be off on my own, tilting mirrors towards the sun in order to burn armies of ants. That was my idea of fun. -Ali Larter

Young girls look to me as a role model and think I crash diet to keep slim. That's not true, I always eat properly. -Denise Van Outen

Having gone through so many of the personal things I've gone through, its about creating an (online) space for girls to be heard. I don't profess to have all the answers. But Ask Elizabeth is a space where girls are not alone. -Elizabeth Berkley

My mission is to give girls the tools to be able to blossom into their best selves. -Elizabeth Berkley

We're not excusing the ones who are mean, but I want girls to understand the psychology. It's not in everyone. But the bully needs to put this pain somewhere. -Elizabeth Berkley

'Showgirls' was a critical point in my life. I had my head handed to me. At 21 years old, I had to find my self-esteem again. It was a very hard time. -Elizabeth Berkley

I tell girls, 'If you're tall and feel too tall, the answer is to be taller.' -Elizabeth Berkley

Everyone just talks about the problems our teenage girls are facing and what they're dealing with. But there was, to me, a void in how they were being served or helped. I thought, 'Wow, I'd love to create something.' -Elizabeth Berkley

I needed to find my own worth and shake the image after having done 'Showgirls' at age 21. -Elizabeth Berkley

Ask Elizabeth is a community of voices, it's not me standing on a podium telling people how to run their lives, it's girls helping each other sharing their wisdom and advice and I create a space for them to do it. -Elizabeth Berkley

Six months ago, I traveled to India to see firsthand what the prime minister of that country calls a national shame. It is the systematic, widespread, shocking elimination of India's baby girls. Some 50,000 female fetuses are aborted every month in India. -Elizabeth Vargas

It's estimated that one million girls in India 'disappear' every year. -Elizabeth Vargas

So I don't really have much rivalry, or if there is any, I don't really know anything about it. Because, you know, I'm not around girls like that. The friends I have in the business, I'm always really happy for them. I think we're always happy for each other. That sounds crap, but it's true. -Emily Blunt

I'd never heard of colon cancer. Baseball wasn't even important to me. I have a wife and two girls. That's what was important. The doctors told me and all I could say was, 'When are we going to get this thing out?' -Eric Davis

To all the girls out there who think being funny is not sexy, you are wrong! -Chad Michael Murray

A guy friend and I went to California Pizza Kitchen, and a group of pretty girls came over to us and said, 'You guys are gay, right?' -Chad Michael Murray

If I'm teaching girls that do love to make cookies and do love fashion – that they can use math as a part of that – you think that's me saying, come on girls you belong in the kitchen, you belong shopping? Or, do you think it's me showing them how math is part of all their life, even the part they thought it had nothing to do with? -Danica McKellar

Teenage girls these days are more and more getting lured into thinking they should dumb themselves down, and that's going to attract the wrong kind of guy, and it's serious. It's serious business. -Danica McKellar

I want girls to feel the confidence you get from being smart. They get so many messages that tell them the most important thing is to be beautiful. -Danica McKellar

A lot of girls think they have to choose between being the smart geeky type or the beautiful bimbo. -Danica McKellar

I went to about one frat party a year. A year seemed to be enough time for me to forget how much I didn't like frat parties, and my friends would eventually convince me to go to one. Cheap beer, guys looking for a quick hook-up, and girls playing 'dumb' to get in on the hook-up. I just never got into it. -Danica McKellar

My advice for girls who are waiting for their Prince Charming is to be open for anything. Be open to new experiences, be open to the idea that it may take longer than you want, but if you're open to meeting new people and new adventures, then love will come along. -Lily Collins

There's no better feeling than making your little girls laugh. -Jerry O'Connell

When you have little girls, you're the coolest person in the world. I know at some point that's going to end; in their adolescence I'll become the opposite of that, especially if I'm parked outside a high school party. -Jerry O'Connell

The girls who like me aren't the ones I like. Or, if I do and they want to commit, I suddenly need tons of time with my friends. -Ethan Hawke

I think it's really hard for teenage girls in London to just gently… have a life. Everything has to be organised for kids in London – you can't just walk three roads to see a friend. -Carol Vorderman

Rap is hardcore street music but there are women out there who can hang with the best male rappers. What holds us back is that girls tend to rap in these high, squeaky voices. It's irritating. You've gotta rap from the diaphragm. -Cheryl James

There are thin girls with infertility issues, normal sized girls with infertility issues and overweight girls with infertility issues. Unless your doctor tells you your weight is affecting you in some way… once the doctor rules it out, that's really not it. -Giuliana Rancic

You think once you've shown what you can do, and your movies have been successful, that snap, you work. So to discover the difference between guys' roles and girls' roles made me plain mad. It's unjust. -Connie Nielsen

I'm making a movie about relationships, and I'm surrounded by guys scared of talking to girls. -Judd Apatow

Having been a cheerleader, I know all too well what these girls give up to join forces and compete. -Kelly Ripa

I've been known to make out with girls from time to time. Couple drinks involved, you know. It's fun. And who knows? Maybe it'll go further someday. I don't know. -Adam Lambert

I think that British girls have a very eclectic and unique style. -Nicole Richie

Nearly all of these Chinese girls that have had success have had coaching from foreign coaches. -Michael Chang

I've noticed that girls between like 20 and 30 seem to know 'Can't Hardly Wait.' I got the goth kids who know 'Buffy.' I got this wide spectrum of people who range from like 8 to 13 who seem to know 'Scooby-Doo.' Then I get the international people who seem to know 'Austin Powers' and 'The Italian Job.' -Seth Green

A working woman could save a few shillings a week, and then every five weeks she'd come in and we'd cut her hair. She could shampoo it under the shower, swing it and dry it off or just let it dry by itself. It changed the lives of many young girls who'd never had the opportunity to be styled like that before. -Vidal Sassoon

There were so many pretty girls coming into the salon as clients, and others working in the salon. And I thought, 'Hmm. This is rather nice.' -Vidal Sassoon

I should have been out there having a wild time like all the other girls my age, but I wasn't. I was going home every night to what was, initially, a very happy marriage. -Amanda Holden

The industry is quite chauvinistic generally. Expectations of women, girls, what they should look like, how they should be, what they should say, what they should wear, how their hair should be, what colour their skin should be. -Gemma Arterton

Especially with girls, people always want to put them in little brackets. -Gemma Arterton

I think my mom put it best. She said, 'Little girls soften their daddy's hearts.' -Paul Walker

I was definitely ahead of my friends. I was French-kissing girls way before anybody else was. -Paul Walker

I recognize that I have a unique position to be a role model to young girls because I am doing something that they consider glamorous, which is acting, and yet I took a time to really get my education and study mathematics, and I think math is the cat's meow. -Danica McKellar

Confidence is one of the sexiest things in guys and girls. -Danica McKellar

There is an epidemic right now of girls dumbing themselves down… in middle school because they think it makes them attractive. -Danica McKellar

I didn't think that college math was for me. I didn't think I'd be able to hack it. And that perception of math not being for girls, not being for girls who see themselves as socially well adjusted has got to change. -Danica McKellar

When girls are asking themselves 'Who am I?' for the first time and they hear all this bad PR about math, they think, 'Well, whoever I am, I'm not somebody who likes math.' -Danica McKellar

I had done quite a bit of research about math education when I spoke before Congress in 2000 about the importance of women in mathematics. The session of Congress was all about raising more scholarships for girls in college. I told them I felt that it's too late by college. -Danica McKellar

I want to help middle-school girls stay interested in math and be good at it, and see it as friendly and accessible and not this scary thing. Everyone else in society tells them it's not for them. It's for nerdy white guys with pocket protectors. -Danica McKellar

There are stereotypes that have been out there for a long time that tell girls that their main asset, the main thing that they are valued for, is their appearance and also that it's to the exclusion of anything else. -Danica McKellar

I've done a lot of surveys and interacted with a lot of students, and I was shocked to see that at 12 years old, girls are already talking about dumbing themselves down. -Danica McKellar

Little girls are taught to be dependent, incapable of valuing themselves in many aspects of their daily lives. -Josefina Vazquez Mota

When 'Desperate Housewives' ends, I think my girls will be about the kindergarten age. I will be so happy to be there for them through that huge transition. -Marcia Cross

I use as high SPF as I can get, and I live under a hat like a mushroom all the time. Someone said they're worried about their kids getting older and doing drugs, and I got this look of horror on my face and thought, 'What if my girls don't wear hats?' But at 13 months old, they could say 'hat.' -Marcia Cross

I like bringing the girls on set, but if I can't do that then the next day I feel I have to be uber-mum to make up for it. Then I'm exhausted and feel like I'm running in fumes. -Marcia Cross

Swedes are a really humble and shy people in many ways, but I think it's pretty much the same as in the U.S. Little girls want to take photographs with me at lunch. -Joel Kinnaman

I was totally picked on, but look at me now! I was definitely picked on by boys and girls. I was really lanky and skinny and the boys would say, 'Turn sideways and stick out your tongue, you look like a zipper.' -Krysten Ritter

I am in love with girls that are bad and naughty and badass, and a little selfish, but I like to watch from a respectful distance! -Dreama Walker

The Obama administration now has regulations that tells them that they can no longer promote marriage to these young girls. They can no longer promote marriage as a way of avoiding poverty and bad choices that they make in their life. They can no longer even teach abstinence education. They have to be neutral with respect to how people behave. -Rick Santorum

The problem is neutrality ends in poverty, neutrality ends in choices that hurt people's lives. This administration is deliberately telling organizations that are there to help young girls make good choices, not to tell them what the good choice is. That is absolutely unconscionable. -Rick Santorum

You do not want to get married at 22! Especially if you're famous, because girls are going to be throwing themselves at you. -Usain Bolt

I wish you could see some of the girls I have genuinely had crushes on in my life. They're not the girls you would assume. -Chris Evans

I like girls who are self-deprecating. I like girls who make fun of themselves. If you can't poke fun at yourself, what are you? I just want someone with a good soul. That's about it. The rest I'm really flexible on. -Chris Evans

I like girls who aren't so la-di-da. L.A. is so la-di-da. -Chris Evans

Some girls get swept up in the lifestyle – clubbing and partying with celebrities. You can't live your life like that, though. It's fake. -Gemma Ward

I would say I'm pretty much the exact same as the stereotypical American kid. I mean I'm really lazy, I play a lot of video games, I like girls. I like, you know, the violence and action type thing. -Callan McAuliffe

I play a lot of Playstation, and always trying to look pretty for the girls. -Freddy Adu

I think it's great that young girls have the WNBA to look up to now. -Candace Parker

Girls like to see girls dressed up like princesses occasionally. -Nelly Furtado

I have two sisters and a mother, obviously, so I grew up with a household of girls. Maybe I have a greater respect for women because of it. -Hayden Christensen

I get super bored playing bland, normal girls. -Drea De Matteo

Hong Kong girls have a genius sense of style. I came back to the States thinking no one here has any individuality. Or cute enough socks. -Camilla Belle

We're all doing different things and some of the girls are mums, so priorities have changed. But I would love to do something with the Spice Girls again. I know we would have an amazing time. -Emma Bunton

I pray every day for my little girls. It's hard out there for the younger generation. -Angie Harmon

I think it's very hard in this day and age to raise little girls with morals, ethics and values, and them knowing that they are precious creations and that they are important. -Angie Harmon

I want my girls to be strong and self-sufficient. -Angie Harmon

I'd like to date, but I'm not really in a position to meet girls. -Shaun White

Teenage girls like certain things I wear – or certainly did when that whole boho thing happened. -Sienna Miller

I went to an all-girls boarding school for most of my youth. -Sienna Miller

When I was 12 years old, I was hanging out with 23-year-olds. I was into cartoons and Pokemon, and they're all talking about girls. It was a strange way to grow up. -Shaun White

Some models are naturally very thin, but if they aren't naturally like that, then what these girls do to their health to fit in… To be a size zero or a two when you're tall is incredible to me. -Tatjana Patitz

My biggest pet peeve are just girls who go to sports bars who have no intention on caring what teams are playing, like they're looking for just a night out. That drives me more crazy than anything else. Like, don't pretend to be a sports fan. -Jerry Ferrara

I was always into very androgynous things. Guys, girls… I'm into androgyny in general. -Evan Rachel Wood

I was very against pink and purple when I was young, because they were girls' colors. But that was only because I didn't want people to write me off for what I can do. When I got into my 20s, I decided that was stupid. -Danica Patrick

I hope that I'm sexy in a different kind of way than I think that a lot of girls are right now. I think a lot of girls in the public eye, especially musical artists, are just kind of objectified a little bit and wearing super-skimpy outfits and leaving nothing to the imagination. -Emmy Rossum

I think it is important for girls to see movies where it is not all just about 'the boy' or it's simply being about 'the relationship' or 'Am I pretty enough?' or 'Am I cute enough?'. -Monique Coleman

Although they might not admit it, I think girls are very aware of the impact that they're having. But they never feel it themselves, and it's impossible to explain. It's like trying to tell a blind person what yellow is. -Alex Kapranos

The internet is like a gossipy girls' locker room after school, isn't it? -Alex Kapranos

I think I wasted a lot of my youth, falling for girls who were a couple of years older than me. -Eric Bana

The surprising thing is that I was not funny in high school. I was always jealous of the funny kids because they always got the girls. I couldn't tell a joke to save my life. -Seann William Scott

I go out with my friends as often as I can on the weekends, and I'm always drawn to girls with rhythm. -David Gallagher

If I get married, it's something you really have to work at. It's hard enough to work at having a relationship with best friends and girls that are in the business. -Selma Blair

I grew up in a military family. I was moved around from school to school, so people aren't always the most welcoming to new girls in school. -Olivia Munn

Guys are so easygoing and girls are a little harder to please, but that's okay. -Alexa Vega

Dancing is kind of my thing. I go out with my friends as often as I can on the weekends, and I'm always drawn to girls with rhythm. -David Gallagher

I don't think there's going to be a day when I don't think about food or my body, but I'm living with it, and I wish I could tell young girls to find their safe place and stay with it. -Demi Lovato

I feel like I'm held more accountable to stay healthy now because now I'm a role model to young girls to not have eating issues and to not say, 'Hey, it's OK to starve yourself' or 'It's OK to throw up after your meals' – that's not OK. -Demi Lovato

I have to tell you, my seven-year-old granddaughter said to my daughter, her mother, 'So what's the big deal about Grandma Maddy having been Secretary of State? Only girls are Secretaries of State.' Most of her lifetime, it's true. But at the time it really was a big deal. -Madeleine Albright

I love street style, seeing how girls wear pieces and how their pair accessories with their outfit. How they pair shoes with a bag and go to day to night and change things up. -Maria Sharapova

I like girls who like the countryside, put on walking boots and can bend with the wind a bit. If you're going to live with me, you need to be able to embrace the countryside and wet dogs. -Jay Kay

Our life is all about the choices we make, and when I was looking for a mate for life, I really was looking for someone who was a family man, somebody who would embrace my girls as much as they were going to embrace me. I guess I just wasn't finished having children yet. -Joan Lunden

I've had young women come to me and say that before they watched 'Voyager' it didn't really occur to them that they could be successful in a higher position in the field of science; girls going to MIT, girls pursuing astrophysics with a view to a career in NASA. -Kate Mulgrew

You're always gonna have your anorexics and you're always gonna have your bulimics. I'm hoping that young girls will look up to the girls that are the size 4, 6, and 8's, and know that super super skinny is not pretty – just ask any guy! -Jenny McCarthy

I was one of five very clever kids, the other kids were cleverer than I was and still are and are very achieving. The girls were always first at everything and I was always 101st! -Anthony Minghella

This is a good time to ask apologists for the Islamic regime, who degrades Islam? Who imposes stoning, forced marriage of underage girls and flogging for not wearing the veil? Do such practices represent Iran's ancient history and culture, its ethnic and religious diversity? Its centuries of sensual and subversive poetry? -Azar Nafisi

I don't think anyone will deny that girls are academically superior as a group. -Christina Hoff Sommers

In reality, American girls are among the most outspoken, ambitious, successful girls in the history of the human race. -Christina Hoff Sommers

Any child may go through periods during which they become less outspoken with their parents or teachers. But girls, like boys, live in many different worlds – they have their friends and their classroom and their parents – and within these different domains, they may have different levels of expressiveness. -Christina Hoff Sommers

Toy companies aren't interested in ideology, they want to sell toys. If they would sell a toy that both boys and girls would buy, it doubles profits. -Christina Hoff Sommers

A lot of kids are bullied because of their sexual identity or expression. It's often the effeminate boys and the masculine girls, the ones who violate gender norms and expectations, who get bullied. -Dan Savage

I have nothing against people having work done, it is when I hear tale of girls of 16 queuing up to get bigger breasts, that is when I despair. -Amanda Burton

The basic equation that mystified me as a young man was looking at guys who could actually get girls. I was always amazed, because they never seemed to care. I was like, 'How do they do that?' -Andy Richter

People think it must be wonderful being in movies or on television, but it can be very tough on a child. I had two friends in elementary school. That was it. There was a clique of girls that were brutal to me. They pulled some very mean stuff. My two friends got me through it. Without them, I would have been all alone. -Angela Cartwright

I've always loved when girls carry their wallets as a clutch instead of a bag. -Alexander Wang

I don't think that everything that's popular is necessarily right for every body and so I'd like for girls to be confident enough to make the right choice for themselves and to look unique. -Rachel Roy

I tell girls all the time that the men that have fallen in love with me, have all fallen during a man repeller stage… funny how life works out like that. -Rachel Roy

When I talk to young girls about clothes, I tell them to show a lot of brains. -Rachel Roy

Because my business life is so busy, my home is really my sanctuary. That is where I reflect and spend quality time with my girls. -Rachel Roy

At 13, when I was a runaway, I was taken in by the most amazing drag queens in Portland, Ore. We didn't always know where our next meal was coming from, but there was so much camaraderie and love. Not to mention, those girls could paint a face, and I learned how because of them. -Rose McGowan

It's been really fun to see with each album when I change to see the fans of the show emulate my style and with the first record a lot of the kids in the crowd were wearing neck ties like I was and now you'll see a lot of girls with pink hair. It's cool, it's actually really neat. -Avril Lavigne

I train my chefs completely different to anyone else. My young girls and guys, when they come to the kitchen, the first thing they get is a blindfold. They get blindfolded and they get sat down at the chef's table… Unless they can identify what they're tasting, they don't get to cook it. -Gordon Ramsay

My childhood was really comfortable and secure, but school was a nightmare. I was a lot taller than the other girls and they called me Gitte the giraffe. -Brigitte Nielsen

Vegas represents the idea of America I had as a kid. The big cars, the pretty girls; everything is possible in Vegas. -Joel Robuchon

I was always really inspired by watching the older girls competing, just seeing other Olympians do great things, and I just really wanted to be a part of that whole experience. And to be able to represent USA was always a goal of mine. -Aly Raisman

Before, I guess, mum and dad were everything, but now, in my case, I had two new girls and all of a sudden they're completely dependent on you and there's a third generation. It's a funny shift all of a sudden. You have the babies, you have yourself and then you have your parents. -Roger Federer

I don't want to be the flavor, the passing thing that the girls scream at. I think that it's more important for me, honestly, that the guy who gets dragged to the show, you know, looks at his wife and says, thank you, that was great and tells his buddies. -Michael Buble

For whatever reason, I didn't succumb to the stereotype that science wasn't for girls. I got encouragement from my parents. I never ran into a teacher or a counselor who told me that science was for boys. A lot of my friends did. -Sally Ride

It's well known that many girls have a tendency to dumb down when they're in middle school. -Sally Ride

I was very shy when I was younger. But I did have a terrible temperament. I would get angry very quickly, but the rest of the time I was this big goofball, playing the drums in a band and making out with girls. -Jeremy Renner

I'm very shy in real life; I can't really hit on girls. -Jeffrey Donovan

My mother had all these maxims – like, classy girls never chew gum, never read comic books, never get their ears pierced, never get their hair dyed. -Jennifer Tilly

I used to take my short stories to girls' homes and read them to them. Can you imagine the reaction reading a short story to a girl instead of pawing her? -Ray Bradbury

A typical practice consists of practicing every event for about an hour. A lot of people assume I have private coaching, but I work out with 13 other girls at the gym! -Shawn Johnson

It's been strange and weird watching the other girls at the U.S. Olympic trials just because I was training to be out there myself. -Shawn Johnson

I inherited my father's insatiable desire to meet all the beautiful girls in the world. -Anthony Kiedis

As we begin to leave Afghanistan, are we fooling ourselves about what we are leaving behind or what we have promised the people of Afghanistan? Especially the women and girls? -Greta Van Susteren

When I get up and work out, I'm working out just as much for my girls as I am for me, because I want them to see a mother who loves them dearly, who invests in them, but who also invests in herself. It's just as much about letting them know as young women that it is okay to put yourself a little higher on your priority list. -Michelle Obama

As the first Hispanic female governor in history, little girls often come up to me in the grocery store or the mall. They look and point, and when they get the courage, they ask 'Are you Susana?' and they run up and give me a hug. -Susana Martinez

My mother was one of seven girls whose parents went to bed hungry so their children wouldn't. My father lost his mother when he was nine. He left school and went to work for the next 70 years. They emigrated to America with little more than the hope of a better life. -Marco Rubio

I do think grand gestures are a hit and miss, especially for girls. -Carly Rae Jepsen

At 14 I discovered girls. At that time dancing was the only way you could put your arm around the girl. Dancing was courtship. -Gene Kelly

Ever since I was younger I wanted to be on stage, singing my songs in a glittering costume. And that happened and is still happening. I have to remember that this is what I wished for and be grateful because there are 500 other girls right behind me that are ready to snatch it up. -Katy Perry

I hope I've been able to show other young girls that as long as you work hard and you're committed to fight for your education, that anything's possible. -Susana Martinez

Some girls love to go to the airport and have 50 paparazzi on them. I go to the airport and have a mental breakdown. -Megan Fox

I think I'm a different kind of role model for young girls. -Megan Fox

Pretty girls have problems too. -Chris Rock

I've seen women who don't have great relationships with their dads, and it all comes down to this: You have to tell girls you love them every day. -Chris Rock

I was raised in a Baptist household, went to a Catholic church, lived in a Jewish neighborhood, and had the biggest crush on the Muslim girls from one neighborhood over. -Will Smith

That I survived the Holocaust and went on to love beautiful girls, to talk, to write, to have toast and tea and live my life – that is what is abnormal. -Elie Wiesel

I basically get stereotyped a lot in terms of being a girl and writing 'chick' music for teenage girls or something. I think, if anything, the press kind of, because of my gender and my age, tends to kind of relegate my work to this sort of special-interest group. It's part of the cultural dynamic, I guess. -Ani DiFranco

I am happy that the young girls have a lot more choices these days and an opportunity to feel better about themselves. -Mia Hamm

In my experience, it's all wonderful with girls until about 16. Around that time, boys kind of calm down and start focusing their testosterone. Girls get a little challenging, especially for fathers. -Tim Allen

I wanted to be like my friends. I hung out with girls who had blue eyes and blond hair and I thought, 'I want to look like them!' -Selena Gomez

In high school I definitely had a clique of friends. And what I loved about it was that we were healthy and good girls. -Tyra Banks

I am so tired of fear. And I don't want my girls to live in a country, in a world, based on fear. -Michelle Obama

There are so many little girls who follow me and look up to me. I'm their role model, so I have to make sure I'm always being professional and not putting any swear words out there – just really putting positive things out there on the Internet. -Jordyn Wieber

I love the way girls in London dress; it's so different to the American 'blow-dry and immaculate grooming' thing. -Rachel Weisz

I once told a journalist that girls call me 'Kitten,' but I couldn't have been more sarcastic, and no matter how many times I've said that it was a joke, it still doesn't go away. -Joaquin Phoenix

I just like being around people, especially nice people, and there are a lot of nice girls on tour. -Caroline Wozniacki

I care so passionately about improving the quality of life for women and girls, not just here in the United States, but internationally as well. I am a single mom and I raised a daughter who is now a young adult. -Valerie Jarrett

I was born in Corpus Christi, Texas, the youngest of four girls, including my oldest sister, Lisa, who has special needs. My mom was a special education teacher, and my dad worked on the Army base. We weren't wealthy, but we were determined to succeed. -Eva Longoria

I hope the fathers and mothers of little girls will look at them and say 'yes, women can.' -Dilma Rousseff

Men need to feel important. They feel better when they're with younger girls or unknown girls. -Lauren Bacall

I'd sneak out of the house to meet girls at 3:30 a.m. -Aidan Quinn

I do think girls in their twenties accept certain kinds of lesser treatment than they would at other times in their lives. -Lena Dunham

I don't have a model's body. But I'm not one of those crazy girls who thinks that they're fat. I'm okay with what I have. I can rock this body, you know? -Hayden Panettiere

In the past I'd always felt like 'the girl' in the show or the movie. On 'Friday Night Lights' there were a bunch of girls, and I was the woman. Initially there was a little struggle with my identity around that. But now there's a sense of ease. -Connie Britton

I wasn't like those girls who give birth and are back on the runway. It took me probably six months to gain 45 pounds and I would say it took me double that time to lose it. -Padma Lakshmi

People are thrown off by someone who looks feminine, but is also strong. It's not that pretty girls aren't smart, it's that women aren't strong. -Padma Lakshmi

I'm usually the character people love to hate, because I used to play bad girls all the time. -Sprague Grayden

Even when I wasn't overweight I was never one of those girls or women who wanted to look nice. I always thought it wasn't important. -Jo Brand

I like both athletic girls and girly girls. It depends on their personality. I like girls who can go out and play sports with me and throw the football around, but you don't want a girl who's too much tougher than you. I like brainy girls who can respond to what I'm saying. -Josh Hutcherson

My little girls are the most beautiful women in the world. I am a lucky, lucky man. I will spend every day making sure that they know this. -Russell Simmons

The plastic surgery issue is really looming because girls in the U.S. are getting it in their teens. -Camille Paglia

Now that virtually every career is an option for ambitious girls, it can no longer be considered regressive or reactionary to reintroduce discussion of marriage and motherhood to primary education. We certainly do not want to return to the simplistic duality of home economics classes for girls and wood shop for boys. -Camille Paglia

Little girls are cute and small only to adults. To one another they are not cute. They are life-sized. -Margaret Atwood

My grandfather had two boys, my uncle had three boys, my dad had me and my two brothers, each of my brothers have had two boys. Then something happened with the chromosomal experiment and suddenly I've got three girls. -Greg Kinnear

I don't really find girls to be any more dramatic or delicate than boys; I've known plenty of little boys who've had miserable breakdowns over things… in fact, I was one of them! -Harry Connick, Jr.

I've raised my girls in a sort of genderless fashion. I mean, I'll take them to get their nails done – I actually love doing that – but I also play ball with them. As a result, my girls are tough and athletic and game for everything. -Harry Connick, Jr.

I believe that the rights of women and girls is the unfinished business of the 21st century. -Hillary Clinton

Going out and playing football or baseball with the boys, when I was a tomboy, was a great way to learn about winning and losing, and most girls didn't have that experience. -Hillary Clinton

Margaret Thatcher was in my year, and our first-year college photograph shows us standing side by side in the back row. We were both grammar school girls on state scholarships. -Nina Bawden

A supermodel needed to be able to be on 'Sports Illustrated,' to be able to walk runways, to be able to do beauty ads, to be on covers. And the girls now can no longer be on covers and be in the ads because your actresses have taken over all the jobs. I don't know what happened, but we want our jobs back. -Kim Alexis

In Britain, girls seem to be either bright or attractive. In America, that's not the case. They're both. -John Cleese

I'm not good with catty girls. I'm too laid-back. -Vanessa Hudgens

I think I'm happy with who I am. I don't know if I learned that from other girls or just people in general. -Hilary Duff

It's not attractive when girls get superskinny. Guys don't like it. Girls don't like you as much. You lose some happiness when that's all you think about. -Hilary Duff

Modeling is a tough job, your co-workers are your rivals, it really puts a damper on your perspective of other girls. -Adriana Lima

I wanted to be a Priest at one point. I was pretty religious. I was an altar boy, and I was good at it. Then, I started meeting girls and I'm like 'You know, maybe I shouldn't be a Priest.' -Jimmy Fallon

I just try to go to work, and concentrate on coming home to my girls. -Bruce Willis

Boys are 30 percent more likely than girls to drop out of school. In Canada, five boys drop out for every three girls. Girls outperform boys now at every level, from elementary school to graduate school. -Philip Zimbardo

The funny thing is, the girls that I'm always up against for roles are pretty nice and cool, like Emma Watson. She's awesome. -Amanda Seyfried

You can go into neighborhoods in the United States where people dress a certain way because they don't want to be out of touch, where boys wear pants down to their knees, which nobody has compelled them to do but they pick up the cultural norms, or where girls are improperly dressed by my eyes, but that's what they see in the media. -Hillary Clinton

I am pretty honest about a lot of things that young girls question, like their body image. -Kim Kardashian

I get letters from little girls begging me to adopt them. -Kim Kardashian

I have friends who have daughters and there's times I think I'm glad I have boys instead of girls. -Liam Neeson

When you look around right now, Nashville is kind of going through another changing of guard; you're watching the Martina McBrides and the Faith Hills and all of them that have been the big stars for the last however many years, and the next generation is coming in: Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, those girls. -Callie Khouri

I've missed London so much for its fashion. No disrespect to the girls in Manchester, but some really do look like clones – there's a lot of hair extensions and fake tans. You're free to experiment down here. -Kaya Scodelario

Feminists bore me to death. I follow my instinct and if that supports young girls in any way, great. But I'd rather they saw it more as a lesson about following their own instincts rather than imitating somebody. -Bjork

A lot of these girls have a goal in life to find a rich guy. I can smell it from a mile away. They won't catch me! I know what they look like. They come with their little Kelly bag and their Rolex and the Louboutin shoes that are slightly too sexy. Shove off! Do you think I'm going to be the next sucker here? -Jean Pigozzi

I have to say, my celebrity is not a big factor in my life. Once in a while someone takes my picture. But I'm not exactly one of the four girls everyone's chasing at the moment. -Helen Hunt

I've always felt heroic about my life… As a child, I remember little girls in the playground moaning about how boys could do more than they could. I didn't think that was the case at all. My parents didn't treat me as a girl. -Vivienne Westwood

Today's girls are tomorrow's women – and leaders. -Isabel Allende

I wasn't one of those girls who always dreamed of being an actress. I went to a normal school and then these film auditioners turned up when I was nine. Then I just fell into this whirlwind. -Emma Watson

Well, in brief, I was discovered by a lady called Beth Boldt. She had also been a model. She used to take pictures of the girls she found, and she took a picture of me one day in my school uniform, and it all kind of started from there. -Naomi Campbell

Well, when I started modeling in the mid-'80s, the girls who did shows did shows, and the girls who did magazines did magazines. That's what was understood. -Naomi Campbell

I think it's cooler when girls have favorite pieces of clothing rather than an entirely new wardrobe every few months. -Cameron Russell

I go to castings and see several black and Asian girls, then I get to the show and look around there's just me and maybe one other coloured face. -Jourdan Dunn

Growing up in a house of five girls, I couldn't help but glance at a fashion magazine or two. -Karlie Kloss

Yeah, I try to be the best example I can be for young girls just as far as my person goes – just to uphold a good image. -Miranda Lambert

Right now it seems like the girls are drawing more attention to country music. -Miranda Lambert

You know, I had no trouble with the girls. -Rod Stewart

I got bored of not feeling affectionate towards girls. -Rod Stewart

I couldn't make it on the swimming team in high school. In fact, I got thrown off the swimming team and was forced to audition for the school play because they had at the audition about 35 girls show up and no boys, so my swimming coach suggested that I might be able to do the drama department more good than I was doing the swimming team. -Ron Perlman

Why have a model on the front of your magazine when you can have Kate Winslet, Cate Blanchett or Hilary Swank? Because those girls are intelligent and talented, people are interested. -Milla Jovovich

There is all this controversy that women and girls are too skinny or too overweight. I say to just do martial arts and everything will be okay. You will tone up your body and find a confidence you can't find just sitting around watching TV and hanging out with friends. -Milla Jovovich

We can no longer waste time and money. Every day, more than 2,000 girls in America, age 15-19, give birth – in the wealthiest, most educated nation in the world! Neither you nor I should accept this statistic. -Jane Fonda

The reality is sobering: in the United States one in three girls will become pregnant before age 20, totaling more than 750,000 girls per year. -Jane Fonda

I want to play a role of a 24-year-old woman, not 17-year-old girls. So I have picked a couple of films like 'Butter' to show that. And it's perfectly fine not to do anything for a year if I don't find the right thing. -Ashley Greene

I work with a charity called Donate My Dress. It's got chapters all over the country where you can donate special-occasion dresses. Prom is a big deal when you're 15 years old, and it enables girls who don't have the money to come in and choose something special. -Ashley Greene

Growing up my whole life, my mom was telling me how incredible and special I was and that I was going to change the world. I think it's important for girls to know that they can change the world, that they do have an impact. -Ashley Greene

I definitely think that females have a harder time. It's a lot harder to be a girl because you're always in your head. I've heard my brother go and take it out on the football as he says. Whereas girls would rather sit down and over think things. -Nikki Reed

I think so many young girls get caught up in the challenge of being with somebody who's dangerous, who's bad, who's enticing, who's all of those things, and you forget what it's like to enjoy simple love. -Nikki Reed

Junior high is so much worse than high school because at least in high school different is more accepted, celebrated actually: all the girls with blue hair and gothic Hello Kitty backpacks. -Nikki Reed

With girls, friendships are hard because you have to learn to get to a maturity level to love them but not want to be them. -Nikki Reed

From its inception by Michael Bennett, 'Dreamgirls' has always been an epic story with an ensemble cast. I didn't change that. The screen version remains, really, a group story. -Bill Condon

There were moments on the set when the depth of the cast of 'Dreamgirls' was almost overwhelming to me. -Bill Condon

I think one of the major differences between Wonder Woman and Jessica Jones is that Wonder Woman is iconic and much better known, so you get into a lot of ridiculous expectations, like what's her costume going to look like? Well, nobody knows who Jessica Jones is, except for fangirls and boys. -Melissa Rosenberg

So what 'Twilight' does is show how women/girls can drive box office and they can support a tent pole movie. They're an extremely passionate fan base. This coincided with the 13 year old boys starting to stay home and play video games and work on their home media stuff. They're no longer going to theaters in droves. -Melissa Rosenberg

I am involved with 'Write Girl,' which is such a great organization, because they go into inner city schools and work with underprivileged girls to pair them up with other writers. And it gets them learning to express themselves and become familiar with their own voice. They have a 100% success ratio getting those girls into college. -Melissa Rosenberg

I grew up in a community where it was not the exception to be a good girl. It was sort of expected. And all of my friends were good girls too, and my boyfriends were good boys. Everybody was pretty nice. And that affects how I write my characters. There aren't very many bad guys in my novels. -Stephenie Meyer

So many boys and girls talk the same way, listen to the same music, look the same. If I'm out, I'll notice the person who looks different before I notice the person who's, 'really hot.' -Jack Antonoff

Quite a lot of the girls I get photographed with are just friends and then, according to the papers, I have, like, 7,000 girlfriends. -Harry Styles

It's pretty strange because you have images of people in your head when you left, then you just think they're going to be the same when you come back, like time freezes. I have sisters and from the ages of 11 to 13 – it's a big change for girls. -Zayn Malik

Some girls like to say one thing and mean another. And me being who I am, I'm very straightforward. Everything is very black and white for me. I don't really like playing mind games. -Zayn Malik

In week one of the 'X Factor,' just to be a little bit quirky, I decided to say that I like girls who eat carrots. Ever since I've had lots and lots and lots of carrots. -Louis Tomlinson

You can see girls getting too excited and they start crying or worse. In a lot of these countries they don't get a lot of gigs to go to, so when they get to see their favorite artist they take full advantage of it. Obviously the excitement builds up too much for some on the night and they get a bit… crazy. -Niall Horan

Yeah, and I recently had my first Elvis moment. A gang of young girls was jumping all over me. It was kinda scary. And totally flattering. -Channing Tatum

I grew up in Florida, where if you weren't comfortable dancing, you weren't going to get any girls. -Channing Tatum

I had a go at changing history – maybe not all by myself – I fought at the battle of Normandy, I slogged through the Ardennes, and I celebrated the liberation of Paris on the streets with beautiful French girls throwing flowers at me. I said good-bye to my first true love and discovered what I really wanted to do with my life. -LeRoy Neiman

You know what makes me feel old? When I see girls who are 20-something, or the new crop of actresses, and think, Aren't we kind of the same age? -Jennifer Aniston

The media says that equality for women has arrived, but if you look around, you still don't see girls playing guitars and having success with it. -Joan Jett

I want to be singing to everybody, and I want everybody to think that I'm singing to them. Guys, girls and everyone in between. -Joan Jett

I can see how the young girls really get hurt when their moms are critical, or vice versa when they're overly critical of their moms. It can be so painful. -Tori Amos

Well, I love what you would call boys' music, you know, the prodigy, banging techno, music that girls generally don't like. -Chris Lowe

And I tell you, having girls has made me a much better man. I have friends who are fathers, but they only have boys, and they have the same attitude toward women they always had, you know? And I don't play that… My girls, you mess with them? I will bury you underground. -Mark Wahlberg

I'm the father of two boys and two girls, so I'm more an emotional wreck than a mushball. -Mark Wahlberg

In grammar school some of the girls had problems with me. My face was too light. My hair was too long. It was the black-consciousness period, and I felt really bad. -Whitney Houston

I want to hear an alternative viewpoint, and I don't want girls to be defanged and declawed and pretty and mute. -Shirley Manson

I'm into the girls fancying me and stuff, mad for it. -Liam Gallagher

When I do stand-up shows at colleges, girls will talk to me after the show, and that always feels good. I like talking to them. -Adam Sandler

There are less than 1 per cent of anorexic girls, but there more than 30 per cent of girls in France – I don't know about England – that are much, much overweight. And it is much more dangerous and very bad for the health. -Karl Lagerfeld

The story with anorexic girls – nobody works with anorexic girls. That has nothing to do with fashion. -Karl Lagerfeld

All guys get into music because they love music and they also want to get the girls. -Quincy Jones

Bad boys do get the girls. -Tom Felton

I was never into the popular school or clique or anything. Then I started doing movies when I was in high school, so then I got popular. Then the girls paid attention to you who didn't before. -John Cusack

Texas women have an amazing sense of purpose when they lose it. They're the best girls in the world – they're loyal and fun, but when they get mad, they'll try to kill you. -John Cusack

It's something we, guys, have all done. Made tapes for girls, trying to impress them, to meet them on a shared plane of aesthetics. Read them someone else's poetry because they do poetry better than you could do it, because you're too awkward to do it. -John Cusack

My college, Fitzwilliam, was pretty good but unfashionable and I lived in digs so I was not part of the cloistered 'old college' environment, which frankly was a bit intimidating. But I worked hard and settled in by exploring politics and girls. -Vince Cable

I wouldn't say I'm a feminist, but I don't like girls pretending to be stupid because it's easier. -Amy Winehouse

I didn't try and do fashion pictures. I tried to do portraits of girls wearing dresses. -David Bailey

There's an unconscious bias in our society: girls are wonderful; boys are terrible. And to be a boy, or young man, growing up, having to listen to all this, it must be painful. -Doris Lessing

I think girls like vampires because they are mysterious and they really don't know what they are about. I think a lot of girls are attracted to that. -Josh Hutcherson

I still get a little nervous when talking to girls. Which is awful, and embarrassing, because I feel like I shouldn't. -Josh Hutcherson

I never thought that I would sell to young people, but now girls who are 14 and 15 buy my shoes. -Manolo Blahnik

It's like a woman's birthright to knit. It's primal. It's timeless. You don't need electricity to knit. You can do it with a candle, girls! -Tracey Ullman

You know when you're 14 and terrified to talk to a girl? I didn't suffer much from that. It seemed very natural to me to talk to girls. -Adam Levine

It's interesting that whenever I meet some of the other Bond girls, I always have something in common, and it is an interesting sorority. We all share about our Bonds. 'Did your Bond do that?' 'Yes mine did!' So it is quite funny conversations. We may as well be in high school. -Jane Seymour

I was one of I think three white girls in my school. So, I was very much an outsider. And plus I was Jewish and all of my friends were black and Baptist because they listen to the coolest music. We were all listening to Ray Charles and what was then called race music. -Janis Ian

At school I got teased because I was so thin and awkward-looking. But the girls on TV looked similar to me. I would say to my mum, 'The girls at school are teasing me, but I look like those girls on TV.' -Candice Swanepoel

It just kills me when these girls look at magazines and wish they could look like that. I try to tell them, 'Nobody looks like that. Everything's airbrushed.' -Cindy Margolis

There was a point when I was so sick of this physical perfection thing that I thought it would be good for all young girls to eat burgers and sweets as a rebellion but I don't think that anymore because it's not healthy. -Alicia Silverstone

In high school, it was all about popularity, being with the boyfriend and all the girls thinking he's cute. -Ashley Tisdale

Dinner is a great first date. Don't believe that stuff about girls not wanting to eat on a first date – sharing a romantic meal is so sexy. -Carmen Electra

All the roles are for boys. The girls' roles are either small or all the same. There's just nothing interesting. -Christina Ricci

I go off and make movies; I come home, and I'm a dad and I hang with my girls. -Clive Owen

I was at the birth of my two girls. -Clive Owen

As a young girl, there were the obvious messages about what girls could and couldn't achieve. And to compound the limitations I felt being leveled upon me, I realized at the age of nine, that I was gay. -Chely Wright

My sister Jennifer is an Emmy winning journalist and mother of three amazing girls. She brings an exceptional dedication to her job, her family, and her community, and has been a role model of mine for many, many years. I'm extremely proud of her. -Ron Livingston

A lot of my buddies also played golf, but when it came to going to the beach or on the boat and chasing girls, they usually went that way and I went to the golf course to practice. Sometimes they'd come from the beach at dark to pick me up at the course. -Mike Weir

I wish I was one of those cute pregnant girls who wear skinny jeans throughout their pregnancies. But I just gain weight. -Jennifer Garner

Raising three girls, I think it's important to teach them to support other women. -Martina McBride

I have girls who are concerned about how they look compared to models or what have you. It's my responsibility to teach them that beauty is more than superficial. -Martina McBride

I would inevitably get the girls who were interested in me because I was the guy from E.T. It was kind of tough. I can't deny ever capitalizing upon it but on the whole in my teens I was pretty virtuous. -Henry Thomas

Ever since Marilyn Monroe was transformed from one of the prettiest girls you could ever hope to see into an icon, everyone has been trying to repeat that icon. And now the entire industry is filled with, and by and large run by, wannabes. -Melissa Leo

At work, you want to stand out but not in extra-funky ways. At the core, it's about dressing for girls – who are most of my fans – and you want to dress up for them. You just want to feel like you're on top of your game. -John Legend

My first attempt at a kiss was in fifth grade, but it didn't go so well. Later, I used Boyz II Men and Jodeci songs to come on to girls. I had more success. -John Legend

I want people – especially young girls – to know that in life, nothing is going to be based on sex appeal. You've got to have something else to go with that. -Nicki Minaj

I want to show little girls that the possibilities are endless. That's my goal – to not only do it for myself, but to show them I can do whatever I put my mind to. -Nicki Minaj

I wanted to be a cheerleader, like my sister was – all the most popular and beautiful girls are cheerleaders and I wanted that, and it demolished this vision of myself. That's when I found the piano, when music saved me; that's when I first attempted to write my own songs. -Paula Cole

The comics I read as a kid were all about guys in tights. But here was a guy who wore a fedora. He fought crime like they did in Marvel and DC, but he did it in the real world. I had just turned 12 when I met the Spirit and it was a strange coincidence. At the same time I discovered girls I fell out of love with guys in tights. -Frank Miller

I am very old-fashioned about marriage. It is for life and I mean it. I always knew that when I met the right girl, the life I had before – being single, in a band, girls everywhere – would be over. -Gary Numan

I'm awkward around girls. -Jamie Bell

Growing up, my sisters were both into dancing, so I went to a lot of dance recitals, mostly because there were always pretty girls in leotards. -Jason Sudeikis

My mom really instilled in me that I'm beautiful and I can do anything, and I echo that now with my own girls. -Jennie Garth

Dancers are kept in a perpetual state of pre-puberty, and for young girls in particular, that type of pressure breeds insecurities. -Mia Wasikowska

I do believe that models should be older now. You tell girls to go and catwalk and be sexy, but some of these girls have never even experienced their first kiss, so they don't understand how to be like that. -Shanina Shaik

Sometimes I think opposable thumbs were invented so teenage girls could use text messaging. -Diane Lane

I was always drawn to tough girls. I liked that domineering thing. -Liev Schreiber

I feel like it's my responsibility to honestly cover a lot of subjects in part because I have two little girls and I really want them when they grow up to have a voice. -Carre Otis

Just as young people absorb all kinds of messages from the media, young girls learn what it means to be a woman by watching the older women in their lives. -Carre Otis

My goal is to be a household name, and when I do that, I want to help other girls become models, and maybe even launch a fashion line with my mom, like Beyonce did with her mother. My mom has such a good eye, and it's always been a dream of hers. -Chanel Iman

When Fashion Week ends, I miss the shows and the shot of adrenaline that comes with them. Each day is a new show, a new fitting, and you make new friends. Every season you get to know the other girls a little better. -Magdalena Frackowiak

A career high was when I did a cover for 'W Magazine's July issue with Steven Meisel. So few girls shoot with Meisel in their career, and a lot of people had told me I would never achieve that, so it was a dream come true. -Joan Smalls

A mistake a lot of girls make is that they work out but don't eat enough. If you're not eating enough, all the work outs are doing, it's not going to show. -Erin Heatherton

All girls know that they can be anything now. That transformation is to me one of the most satisfying things. -Ellen Johnson Sirleaf

Computer games tend to be boys' games, warlike games with more violence. We have not spent enough time thinking through how to encourage more girls to be involved in computing before coming to college so they can see a possible career in information technology. -Freeman A. Hrabowski III

I'm not into girls. -Adrianne Palicki

When I receive letters from girls that say, 'You give me confidence,' I think, 'Wow, this is amazing.' That's my goal: to let people know it's truly what's on the inside that counts. -Amber Riley

I never wanted to play a character that hated herself. I wanted people to know that those aren't the only roles for people like me, normal girls. -Amber Riley

There's this whole assumption that girls like bad boys, but I have to disagree; I think 'nice' will go a long way. -Brooke Burke

I was sent to ballet classes when I was a little girl. I wasn't very good, but it's that thing where little girls always try ballet, or whatever. -Cat Deeley

I love wearing flat shoes, but I am not one of those girls who walks around in sweat pants and sneakers. -Claudia Schiffer

It's very difficult today for girls to become supermodels. There is a lot more competition, a lot of countries in the East have opened up so there are many more models than there were in the Nineties. Now they have to compete with famous actresses but also with, say, reality stars to be on the magazine covers. -Claudia Schiffer

Sometimes when I flick through a magazine and see these thin models I'm left wondering what effect they can have on an insecure person. But I say to girls: forget what you see in the magazines, that is a world which has nothing to do with reality; think of it as a cartoon. -Elisabetta Canalis

I went to an all-girls' Christian convent school run by nuns. It was fun, but when I was 15, I said, 'Mum, that's it – I need to go where there are some boys.' -Freida Pinto

I'm so bored of all these girls who have written about 20 books by the time they're 25. -Gail Porter

I think a lot of girls look up to me because I'm a strong woman. -Kristin Cavallari

If anyone says, 'Let's have a girls' night out,' I will run in the opposite direction. -Kristin Scott Thomas

If you look at tennis, the girls have become much more attractive; they wear makeup. In my generation, you were a tennis player. It wasn't like you had to look a certain way. -Monica Seles

You don't have to put dresses in a movie to make girls like it. -Seth Rogen

I've had a lot of really influential people in my life, like my grandmother M. J., who have helped me along the way. But there are so many of us girls in my family, and even though they're all so open and honest, who I seek advice from depends on what aspect of life I'm dealing with. -Khloe Kardashian

I'm thrilled to continue my partnership with U by Kotex for Generation Know while helping to empower girls. I've always been a motivational resource for my younger sisters and hope I can positively impact and inspire other young girls too. -Khloe Kardashian

I don't get jealous of other girls, because I was… raised in a cloning lab to be the perfect woman for Hugh M. Hefner, so, other than the fact that my I.Q.'s probably a little higher than he would like, I have nothing to worry about. -Holly Madison

I moved on from the whole 'Playboy' thing five years ago and really never looked back. I'm not one of those girls who goes back to all the parties and things. -Holly Madison

I was the Playmate editor for 'Playboy' for two years. I produced two years' worth of centerfolds. I did everything on that, from picking the girls to designing the sets to picking the wardrobe, coming up with themes, assigning the photographer, down to editing the photos and approving the retouching. -Holly Madison

There are so many reality shows on now where they want you to be crazy, the girls are just going bananas; you know how they portray brown girls. They portray us in a different type of light. -NeNe Leakes

I'm definitely suspicious of girls. I've been suspicious of girls my whole life, though, so it's not anything new. -Vinny Guadagnino

I'm Italian and Spanish and Jewish. I'm 100 different things meshed into one. I think that shows girls that uniqueness is beautiful. They can look at me on a magazine cover and see me in a movie and say that they have someone they can relate to. -Lea Michele

I'm honored to be in a position to have young girls or performers look up to me. -Lea Michele

We did a 'Vanity Fair' spread for 'The Hunger Games,' and we were on set, and I saw a little head pop up from the tree. There were three teenage girls who snuck past security and made it into the forest. -Alexander Ludwig

Lately, I've been playing very fashion-forward, popular girls, which is great because it's led me to things like this Nintendo 3DS 'Style Savvy' campaign. It'd be fun to do something a bit dorkier – or quirkier! -Sarah Hyland

I wasn't trying to be a role model with 'The Dutchess,' but suddenly, seeing little girls in the audience with their moms made me think about what I do onstage a little bit more. I had to watch my mouth, because it can be filthy. It changed things for me. -Fergie

For every man that ever walked the Earth, except maybe the sociopaths, when it comes to talking to pretty girls… it's just stark terror. -Chuck Lorre

Look, every guy is nervous when they talk to girls, but I find that little bit of nervousness to be kind of fun. -James Maslow

I love dancing in general and making girls dance. My generation doesn't do it enough. -Jean Dujardin

I have a wide spectrum, a wide demographic. I have the young girls, I have the gay community, I have many regular theatergoers. I do feel a tremendous responsibility and pride to be a role model for some of these young people. -Idina Menzel

I was always bigger than the other girls. My sisters are very, very beautiful and very skinny, and I've always had a more muscular body. So I grew up with a different mentality. -Gina Carano

When I was training, I trained with my younger brother Brady. I would wrestle some of my friends, who I had grown up with, which showed me some moves, but it was never a full on match. When I went to competitions, there were other girls, so I always wrestled girls. -Jaimie Alexander

I hear a lot of 'Top Model' girls say they are dismissed by clients because they recognize them, but it never happened to me. -Fatima Siad

My goal is to give young girls confidence in this world so they can be more like men in the decision-making process. -Jackee Harry

I think that girls are always expected to have opinions about each other, and maybe I don't have an opinion about some things, you know? -Robyn

You know my girls are so funny. You're out in the country and there are critters everywhere and they get a little like, 'Oh my God! Oh no, bugs!' and I had to say, 'Honey this is fine. This is their world and it's all part of being in the country.' I realized, 'Oh my God, my girls are really city girls.' -Anna Gunn

My best girlfriends are the girls I went to college with at UCLA. -Beth Behrs

Every dude in your high school wasn't striving to be the best poet because then he'd get all the girls, right? But you could imagine a society in which that were the case. -Chad Harbach

Acting can be an amazingly cathartic thing – especially for young girls. -Ellen Pompeo

I just worry about the girls who look up to me. I don't want them to think I starve myself or don't eat, and that to be like me that's what they have to do. -Ellen Pompeo

We're teaching young girls that this is what they should be focusing on: rich and famous girls who are rich and famous for nothing. -Ellen Pompeo

Ads featuring real women and real beauty are such a necessary component to offset the potentially dangerous programming out there for little girls. -Rashida Jones

There are so many of these young-adult movies with these cold guys who act like jerks to girls but are hiding soft sentiments. But in the real world most guys who act like jerks are jerks. Generally they are. I spent a lot of high school thinking that horrible guys must be very sensitive and interesting and it's not true. -Alice Englert

I went to a strict elementary school with nuns, and uniforms that I'm pretty sure were made out of sandpaper. It was an academic, sports-oriented place. I liked to read, and wanted to act, and didn't try out for volleyball. I was weird. The other girls would dip my hair in ink and stuff. -Zosia Mamet

I'll never have a best friend who is a man. It just doesn't work that way. So many times young girls will be like, 'I'm a guy's girl.' And I'm like, 'No, you're not. There's no way a man can understand you like a woman, and you're a guy's girl because you're threatened by other women.' I was like that. -Jemima Kirke

I work with a cause called the Somaly Mam Foundation, and that is my purpose in life, above anything else. Everything that I do, I'm thinking about girls. As strong as we are, we're also sensitive, and I feel like men take advantage of that. -Shay Mitchell

I didn't realize how many actresses have tons of extensions. Their hair is still pretty, but it blew my mind to find that out. I admire the girls who switch it up a lot like Rihanna. But I also love Gisele Bundchen because she found a style that works and never changes it. -Shay Mitchell

I feel like girls in general will always worry about the same things, and it's all appearance related. That will always be there. When you grow older, you grow more confident with who you are. -Lucy Hale

Faviana is a line that girls can feel super-glamorous in. A lot of their designs are kind of based off of what celebrities wear on the red carpet! -Ashley Benson

I am really looking forward to being a role model for girls. -Janel Parrish

In Dallas, life is a little slower. It's a little more day-to-day routine. It's just a simpler life. At the end of the day, I love Texas girls, and I kind of relate to them. -Josh Henderson

I'm recognizable in certain circles, like girls know me, couples know me. But not all straight men know me. -Patti Stanger

In L.A. summer's blistering heat, I've seen many girls wearing short skirts with Ugg boots. I like the boots, and the short skirts, but I've always wondered, don't their feet get hot? -Jackson Rathbone

I felt like people only knew me as a singer who dated pretty girls. -Adam Levine

I take mentoring very seriously and I am on the board of an organization called Girls Write Now, where we match teen girls and writing mentors because it changes their lives. -Tayari Jones

Every snapshot collector has obsessions. Some only collect photos of cars. Others like World War II, or babies, or old-timey girls in old-timey swimsuits. I happen to collect the weird stuff: photos that make the hair on the back of your neck stand up a little. The uncanny. -Ransom Riggs

I don't write poems. I don't give flowers to girls… yet. -Rico Rodriguez

I know that I'm an actor and I guess I could kind of put on an act, but it takes so much more time to be someone you are not. I feel so much better just being comfortable with myself and hopefully girls will accept that. -Brie Larson

My friend Jonathan had a great tree house. It was awesome. It was like a big fort up in this tall magnolia tree… That's where we would conduct our very important business, I'm sure, with all our bikes leaning up against a tree and no girls allowed, handling all sorts of important things you handle when you're seven or eight. -Eric Ladin

I am a marathon worker and marathon mother. I'll spend three or four days completely swallowed up by work. And if I make it home in time to say good night, I may have one good hour with the girls, maybe a brief family dinner or a family walk with the dog, and then it is back on the computer to prepare for tomorrow's shows. -Mika Brzezinski

I desperately miss my girls when I am working, and I often feel guilty, but also feel the journey I am on is for them too. When I am on my 16th hour of a day and can barely keep my eyes open, they drive me forward. -Mika Brzezinski

I consider my girls the greatest gift from God in life. And I also love the career that I have built, lost and rebuilt. But the highs and lows of my career would not have been as exciting or manageable to me if I didn't have children and a partner for life with whom to share it all. -Mika Brzezinski

I think human beings have a really broad spectrum of traits, and I almost feel implicated when we say, 'Men are like this, women are like this.' Nobody was telling me, 'Don't get dirty, don't play in the mud, girls don't do that.' -St. Vincent

I'm supportive of women, absolutely, and it's so gratifying to have girls come up and say, 'I'm really inspired by your guitar playing.' I mean no disrespect to the sisterhood, but musically I feel more drawn to things like Dirty Projectors, the National and Grizzly Bear. -St. Vincent

To me I'm just a regular person going to the mall with friends, and now I'm in Forever 21 and I see this random group of girls staring at me and taking pictures. But now I usually have my dad, who is a really tall and intimidating person with me, so he's kind of my bodyguard. -Rebecca Black

I was one of those little girls who practiced signing autographs since I was 5 years old. -Rebecca Black

There's this misconception that comedy and music go together. They don't. Comedians can't compete with rock stars; they're just not on the same level. Rock stars will always be cooler. They will always get more girls. -Michael Ian Black

We don't all have to take the same coordinates to get to the same destination. Being a young African American female artist, I want to open doors for young black girls. -Janelle Monae

I grew up with 'Jane Eyre,' reading it at school, and it's one of those, I think, for a lot of women, a lot of girls, it's the iconic story and so many girls relate to Jane Eyre and her character. -Sally Hawkins

When you have to do all the more crappy jobs before, you appreciate all the good work that comes out of that. There are many girls who immediately have a top model career, and there are lots of models who are doing things that aren't as exciting as doing big campaigns and beautiful magazines. -Saskia de Brauw

I love beating the men. When I beat 'em in the ratings, when I beat 'em in the salary, I always say, 'One more for the girls.' -Cristina Saralegui

When guys talk about sex, eyebrows don't get raised. It's different for girls. -Lauren Myracle

I see girls who haven't had a carbohydrate in three years. The second you go back to eating right, you're going to put that weight on. You eat one piece of bread and you are screwed, lady! -Ginnifer Goodwin

The interesting thing about 'True Blood' is that its appeal is not contained to teenage girls. I get stopped in the street and questioned by 70-year-old men whose wives and daughters are making Bloody Marys and throwing 'True Blood' parties. -Stephen Moyer

Sweden is still a very peaceful country to live in. I think that people in Britain have created this mythology about Sweden, that it's a perfect democratic society full of erotically charged girls. -Henning Mankell

As much as I'm drawn to writing about teenage girls, I like the idea of having the freedom to branch out and write about different ages, for different ages. -Ann Brashares

When I was about 13 I realised girls weren't going to kiss me because I was a gigantic, weird looking creature from the depths. I was like 6 ft. aged 11. -Chris O'Dowd

I feel like I'm good with girls. I understand them and am good at loving them. I've always felt like that's been natural for me. -Dylan O'Brien

I just really like fun, cool, interesting, quirky girls. And sometimes you find that in 6'2 model bodies and sometimes they're short and brunette. All shapes and sizes – it's really about the personality. That sounds cliche, but it's so freaking true! -Dylan O'Brien

For whatever reason, various outlets and individuals are committed to making the world think that young girls don't talk or care about feminism anymore, that it's totally over. But it's not. -J. Courtney Sullivan

You know, girls in general are scarier than Voldemort. -Matthew Lewis

A lot of children are interested in fairies, especially young girls, and Tinker Bell is the ueber-fairy. She's the pin-up girl of fairies. She's the ultimate fairy, but she's also got a mischievous spirit and she's very strong-willed. I think a lot of youngsters recognize themselves in Tinker Bell. -Michael Sheen

I enjoy eating and have no issues with eating. I am not going to be one of those girls who have to watch her weight. -Moon Bloodgood

Boys and boys' body image and clothes have become just as important an issue for boys as for girls. -Rosalind Wiseman

Nobody ever talks about the mean things that girls do to each other. -Rosalind Wiseman

See, at a certain point it becomes cool to be boy crazy. That happens in sixth grade, and it gives you so much social status, particularly in an all-girls school, if you can go up and talk to boys. -Rosalind Wiseman

I mean, I like nice girls, and I like people who are generous. -Thomas McDonell

I'm actually one of the few kids in my grade, especially girls, who didn't end up going to college, just because I already knew what I wanted to do. I had already been actively working in music before I graduated. -Alex Winston

My mother is an incredibly beautiful woman who has laughed at every single thing my father's ever said. At a young age, my brother and I understood that if you can make girls laugh, you can punch well above your weight class. -Seth Meyers

You never see girls running after engineers. -Anthony Mackie

Art-school girls are very nice. -Anthony Mackie

Black men don't like to be called 'boys,' but women accept being called 'girls.' -Marilyn Monroe

A man is more frank and sincere with his emotions than a woman. We girls, I'm afraid, have a tendency to hide our feelings. -Marilyn Monroe

There is just no comparison between having a dinner date with a man and staying home playing canasta with the girls. -Marilyn Monroe

I remember when I was in high school I didn't have a new dress for each special occasion. The girls would bring the fact to my attention, not always too delicately. The boys, however, never bothered with the subject. They were my friends, not because of the size of my wardrobe but because they liked me. -Marilyn Monroe

When you're a teenager, you want to meet a lot of girls – you want to get the most girls. You don't know anything about respect; you don't know anything about being faithful and loyal to your girlfriend. -Nas

While many applauded Oprah for opening her heart to young girls in South Africa, some criticized her for not investing in the youth of America. -Kitty Kelley

I used to think as I looked out on the Hollywood night, 'There must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me dreaming of being a movie star.' But I'm not going to worry about them. I'm dreaming the hardest. -Marilyn Monroe

When you're a soul singer, I'm singing a lot of songs about love and relationships that I think a lot of girls really relate to. For whatever reason, that seems to get 'em excited. The DJ, everyone always says the DJ gets all the chicks, but that's never been my experience. -Mayer Hawthorne

'Sex and the City' is about outsiders. Single girls as lepers, should have been married by now. It's the reason the whole thing took off. -Michael Patrick King

If I talk to a woman for more than five minutes I can tell you exactly whether she's an Aidan girl or a Mr. Big girl. Aidan girls are more interested in nurturing relationships and building a nest while Mr. Big girls are more about show and having fun. -Michael Patrick King

I put my friends and family first. I'm really just a normal thirteen-year-old girl who has a different hobby than most girls my age. Acting is kind of an extracurricular activity. -Natasha Calis

As a little girl growing up in Southside Jamaica Queens, if anyone would've told me I'd have my own perfume one day, and be able to inspire young black girls everywhere, to go into Macy's or Nordstrom's and see their face staring back at them – I wouldn't believe them. -Nicki Minaj

I've always been intrigued by color and by interesting hair. I was one of those weird little girls doing my own hair at the age of 9. I was, like, getting weird gels and new brushes and cornrow holders. I would tweak and perm at the age of 13. -Nicki Minaj

When I was younger I didn't have much financially, like we couldn't afford a lot of stuff and I remember seeing little girls' rooms on TV and they'd all be pink. I didn't have my own room, I shared with my brother, so I would have this daydream and imagine that one day I could have my own room and it would all be pink, like Cinderella's. -Nicki Minaj

I'm a role model now. I didn't know I was gonna have 13-year-old fans, so I've tried to change a few things here and there. But I also know that the girls don't want me to be Miley Cyrus, either. -Nicki Minaj

I was a very quiet, shy child. I grew up in a small town, Louisville, Kentucky, and there weren't too many Hawaiian-Filipino girls, so I stuck out like a sore thumb. I didn't look like everyone else and didn't feel I belonged… But these things only build character and make you stronger. It taught me to grow into the woman I was to become. -Nicole Scherzinger

I dated all these girls and ended up not liking them and thought to myself, 'What was it that all of them had in common?' They had too much time on their hands. Even though they were pretty, they lacked something. A woman could be less attractive but with ambition and drive, that's the most beautiful thing. -Wale

I did some pretty embarrassing modeling, like catalogs and QVC. I know there's probably a stereotype where all pretty girls think they're unattractive, but modeling is the worst thing for your self-esteem, because you're never pretty enough, you're never thin enough. -Whitney Cummings

I've spent so much of my youth trying to change people or change girls and then having it done to me and people wanting me to change. -Chris Messina

I hear a lot of girls say, 'I can be myself around you,' and I'm always thinking, 'Who are you when you're with somebody else?' -Craig Robinson

A lot of girls who turn into something remarkable start off as irrepressible, confident and a handful. -Francine Prose

Many people, many girls have tried to teach me the rules to football. And you would think that it would get in my head that way, but I just don't understand it. -John Hodgman

I am one of four girls and was inspired by my father to dream big. Some girls want to be doctors, but I wanted to run a company. -Denise Morrison

I thought to be feminine was to give in to straight culture, or the beauty standard, but in my heart I had a flair for fashion and style. They were passions I kept secret because I didn't understand I could love clothes and hair and makeup and still like girls. -Beth Ditto

I want to make the IKEA of clothes for fat girls and boys. Cheap, affordable, basic – but ethically made. Basics, you know? Like Spanx – I'm still confused as to why retailers haven't ripped them off yet and done it well. It's because they don't understand the basics behind it. I love Spanx. I'm wearing 'em right now! -Beth Ditto

So I go to my first book signing, and these two girls came up and gave me a piece of paper: '10 reasons you should date our dad. He climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. He's a lawyer.' He didn't know what was going on. He didn't even know me. They called him, and he came down and asked me out that day. Now I'm dating their dad! -Hoda Kotb

As a bookish child in Calcutta, I used to thrill to the adventures of bad girls whose pursuit of happiness swept them outside the bounds of social decency. Tess of the d'Urbervilles, Emma Bovary and Anna Karenina lived large in my imagination. The naughty girls of Hollywood films flirted and knew how to drive. -Bharati Mukherjee

I don't have one role that I want to play. I guess… I want to be a producer. I want to be an activist. I want to be proactive in bringing about work for men, women, boys, girls, everybody who is good at what they do and deserve a shot at it. -Octavia Spencer

In fact I was slightly badly behaved at school and got in trouble. I would get a bee in my bonnet about something I thought wasn't right, and I would ape about too, to make everybody laugh. That was my way through my girls' school, because I wasn't very academic. -Olivia Colman

I feel fortunate that I'm not a beauty. I'm not a classic beauty. I feel it is harder for girls who are like that. There are fewer parts. -Olivia Colman

I'm a pretty feminized geek, you know? I have that point of view, I grew up around a lot of girls, so I'm pretty sensitive to that. But I don't dare say 'I know how women think.' -Paul Feig

I'm a huge fan of good, procedural-type shows on television… there are a lot of roles for women. But there aren't a lot of great network television roles for girls that will let you start a character in one place and finish up with her in a totally different one. -Rachael Taylor

Obviously I like pretty girls, but I'm also looking for someone who can take control. I know guys complain about girls telling them what to do, but I think we all kind of enjoy it. -Damian McGinty

I never taught my girls to play golf; they all played softball. -Nancy Lopez

In Vermont, Governor Madeleine Kunin has given years of service to our state after becoming the state's first female governor in 1985. She is an inspiration to girls throughout Vermont and the country in allowing them to know that the opportunities they have are unlimited. -Bernie Sanders

I left school at 16 and my mother got me a job as a trainee wine taster. But one day I followed some girls into St Martin's art school and saw a voluptuous woman sitting on a stool being sketched. I decided to get myself fired. -Malcolm Mclaren

I mean, my girls are very sweet; I'm very proud of all of of them. -Alan Jackson

It's important not to ditch your mates when you're in a relationship. Lots of girls do it, but you need to remember they will always be there for you. -Rachel Bilson

I wasn't the brightest kid, not by a long shot. I was interested in football, in girls, in getting my work done with the least amount of effort. -Thomas J. Sargent

Ah, the bond between English boys and California girls. For those of us who aren't either, it's a bond that fascinates and mystifies. So much of the world's favorite music comes out of that relationship. -Rob Sheffield

Just as Bowie, Zeppelin, etc., became rock stars by remaking themselves in the image of the California girls, the Go-Gos became rock stars by pretending to be the Buzzcocks and the Sex Pistols. Jane Wiedlin always said her biggest influence was growing up in L.A. as a Bowie girl. -Rob Sheffield

Loving Duran Duran has been one of the constants of my life, but I have no idea what they would sound like if the women in my life stopped loving them. I guess I'll never know. I could claim that Duran Duran taught me everything I know about women, but that's not exactly accurate: I learned it from listening to girls talk about Duran Duran. -Rob Sheffield

As a doctor, when I was minister of health and would go somewhere, little girls would come up to me and say, 'I want to be like you one day, I want to be a doctor.' Now, they tell me, 'I want to be president just like you.' All of us can dream as big as we want. -Michelle Bachelet

There is no city or country in the world where women and girls live free of the fear of violence. No leader can claim: 'this is not happening in my backyard.' -Michelle Bachelet

As more and more women, men and young people raise their voices and become active in local government, and more local leaders take action for the safety of women and girls, change happens. -Michelle Bachelet

By including women in decision-making, city governments will be in a better position to fulfill their responsibility to ensure the safety of their residents, especially women and girls. -Michelle Bachelet

I wasn't a jock in school, and by the 10th grade, when I was in boarding school I was carrying water buckets for the girls' hockey team. I was the kid with long hair and glasses and acne trying to learn how to play guitar and piano in the music center. I was not an athlete past the age of 13 or 14 when they start throwing the ball really fast. -Michael Weatherly

I haven't experienced love at first sight yet. I've seen very, very beautiful girls and been awestruck but never love at first sight. I think confidence goes such a long way with women. A girl who is confident with who she is and she can really flaunt that is really sexy. -Tristan Wilds

When I was a kid, I liked Superman. When I got a little older, I liked Wolverine. And then I found girls. -Jeremy Sisto

There's something brave and touching about game girls of all ages keeping themselves smart in hard times – one thinks of those wonderful women during World War II drawing stocking seams in eyebrow pencil up the back of legs stained with gravy browning because nylons were so hard to get hold of. -Julie Burchill

I wanted to put all my family stories down for my girls, and I remember everything so vividly. I just wanted to put everything down while I still can remember it all. -Sissy Spacek

John Paul was the first modern pope to grow up in a secular culture: He attended public schools, danced with girls – indeed, as a teenager he had a crush on a beautiful Jewish girl who fled his hometown just ahead of the arrival of the Germans. -Carl Bernstein

A couple of girls I've signed autographs for have just cried or broken out into tears. -Chaske Spencer

There are some hot girls in Vancouver. -Chaske Spencer

I was obsessed with girls when I was 13 years old; I wasn't really into books. -Jamie Campbell Bower

I think that like most girls in high school, I just mirrored what was around me. -Lauren Conrad

I would like to be a positive force for young girls. -Leona Lewis

I like seeing girls throw down. -Mackenzie Foy

The advice I would give to girls from Eastern backgrounds who are interested in the arts is that it is always beneficial to get your academic studies out of the way before going into the competitive world of the arts. -Nadia Ali

Whenever I see young girls wearing way too much makeup… you're young, you don't need that much. -Sara Paxton

Yes, I adore the fact that girls like me. -Shayne Ward

I love getting dressed up. Being a pop star is the most brilliant job for that. A lot of girls love shopping, but they might see the most amazing outfit and think, 'When am I going to wear that?', so it's my duty to exploit the fact I do have events I can wear these things to. -Sophie Ellis-Bextor

I try not to wear anything I have to fidget with – there's nothing worse than wearing something and pulling down the hem and re-adjusting the top. My pet hate is when girls wear those strapless dresses and spend the whole night yanking them up. -Sophie Ellis-Bextor

When I was growing up, one or two girls were beautiful, but it was not an aspiration, right? -Susie Orbach

Boys are so much less mature than girls as it is. -Taylor Momsen

I hope girls read what I say in interviews – they should just be themselves. -Taylor Momsen

Kids can't look up to girls who are trying to be growner than they are. -Teyana Taylor

I'm one of the girls that you would love to have in your group of friends. -Tila Tequila

Guys don't like girls that throw themselves at them. That's something that I've learned. -Victoria Justice

So many girls only care about guys and looking good all the time. -Victoria Justice

When you think about the guys who started Twitter, and the Google guys, and the Facebook guys and the Napster guys, and the Microsoft guys, and the Dell guys and the Instagram guys, it's all guys. The girls, they're being left behind. -will.i.am

See, I don't really go after girls. Most of the girlfriends I've had have come after me. So it's really funny when girls get offended because I don't hit on them. -Kellan Lutz

When I meet gay fans out and about, they're so great to talk to – and I'm big on hugging, because I'm from the Midwest. They're just so energetic and loving. I'm proud to have those fans, and their support means a lot to me. I don't want just girls coming to my movies; I want guys to come, too! -Kellan Lutz

I've dated girls and I always wait for that one right time to kiss. I don't kiss on the first date, so I'll take a girl out to dinners, and we'll go bowling, and I make sure to charm them before I do it. -Kellan Lutz

A lot of girls in L.A. just stand in the corner wondering 'Who's gonna talk to me? Who am I gonna diss?' -Kellan Lutz

A lot of girls think they have flaws that really aren't flaws. I've never met a girl who was just so secure about everything. -Kellan Lutz

I'd love to pop back into 'Being Human' as Adam. I love the character so much. I've never really played a character like that. I'm always playing the geek, so to play a kid who is very energetic when he wants to be, and who is always trying to get the girls, was really cool. -Craig Roberts

My high school wasn't a big public school; it was tiny. There were 36 girls in my graduating class. We were a big group of girls that by the time senior year came along couldn't wait to get away from school fast enough but we loved each other. It's really fun to see the girls at reunions now. -Cecily von Ziegesar

The girls show more skin these days, but I think, generally, they behave the same way as when I was growing up. -Cecily von Ziegesar

When it comes to raising civilized kids there are no hard rules, but there are two things on which most parents agree: Boys are generally wilder than girls, and adolescents are wilder than kids of any other age. If you've got an adolescent boy, you're in the sweet spot for trouble. -Jeffrey Kluger

Sisters have ways of socializing brothers into the mysteries of girls. Brothers have ways of socializing sisters into the puzzle that is boys. -Jeffrey Kluger

I'm the oldest of three girls. My sisters say I can be bossy. -Gayle King

I get a lot of fan mail from girls. It's interesting because it's not just the U.S. – you get things from people all over the world. They send these postage stamps and you're like, 'Where do you live?' It's crazy. I'll get letters from the troops, too. -Jenna Ushkowitz

There were ten dancers – four guys and six girls – including me, on the Beyonce tour. Sometimes we would go out with her, to events. She was really normal – just like everybody else! -Heather Morris

Purple lipstick? Naw, that looks stupid on all girls! -ASAP Rocky

You ready? I have gold teeth, I have braids, I'm wearing Rick Owens moon boots, I have rips in my denim, a biker vest, I love artsy girls, my favourite artists are Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon. I'm obsessed with being different. -ASAP Rocky

I look at my little girl and I wonder what she's going to be and what she's going to do and what is it that leads girls certain directions in life. I think a lot of that goes back to what kind of father they had, and so it makes me want to be the best dad I can possibly be. -Jake Owen

I think it's so important for girls to love themselves and to treat their bodies respectfully. -Ariana Grande

I like styling girls that don't normally dress in vintage clothes and don't normally wear red lipstick; I like seeing those kind of girls restyled in a retro way. -Dita Von Teese

Anywhere in life, for girls there's pressure to keep your weight and to keep yourself feeling and looking good. -Kate Upton

If I can help and influence girls who are going through body-image issues then I think that's amazing. -Kate Upton

'Top Model' is pretty good, because it gives these girls an opportunity to chase their passion and possibly get a contract. -Erik Estrada

To be honest with you, I'm more of a girl's girl. I'm much more comfortable being around other girls. -Jamie Chung

My most embarrassing moment was when I was a student at Tufts University and decided to go 'streaking' with a group of girls in the middle of January. Somehow I lost them and ended up being chased by the campus police. -Meredith Vieira

It's not like I cleaned up with girls. I always looked young and I was very small; I hated being 'cute.' -Jamie Dornan

I went to New York for Fashion Week and girls showed up waiting to see me. It's funny because there's a group of girls who I actually recognize because they always show up. It's nice and I'm like, 'Hi girls! I recognize your faces!' It's just like a feel-good experience. -Katie Cassidy

I'm a huge karaoke fan. Oh my God. I'm one of those girls who don't give the mic away. It's a problem. I'm a closeted pop star. -Jenna Dewan

I wanted to do pretty much a purely boy story, yes. The girls are kind of the bad guys in 'Marble Season', although that wasn't my intention. It's also a world without adults. -Gilbert Hernandez

I don't get it when girls say 'I'm fine' but don't mean it. -Conor Maynard

I have a 6-year-old niece who doesn't look like the majority of girls on the covers of magazines. I hope that by the time she's 16, the world will have changed. -Prabal Gurung

I grew up like a lot of country boys and girls do – amongst the pine trees, dirt roads, farms, mules and people who were real. -Josh Turner

So the kind of boy I was, or that I was told to be, you were kind of this like half-gladiator, half-dude who, you know, was supposed to have as many girls as possible and work until your heart exploded, have no fear, you know. -Junot Diaz

The Beatles changed music forever. They took rock n' roll from a medium that was about cars and girls and gave it context, interesting chord changes and true musicianship. -Bob Spitz

My parents had five children in six years and one week, meaning that my mom was pregnant for most of the '60s and driving carpools for most of the '70s. When we were young, she dressed us alike so she could pick us out in crowds: identical skirts for the four girls with the color-coordinated pants for my brother. -Christine Pelosi

I built a baseball field in the lower part of our property and I'm always working on that. I got a wheelbarrow, a pick and a shovel, and I started to build a baseball field during writers' strike. We have boys and girls come over and we have clinics in the spring. It's called The Strike because it's named for the writers' strike. -John C. McGinley

Guys are really easy to get along with. It's a lot better than being on the bus with eight girls. But the worst part is being the only girl, because there's some days where you just wanna watch a chick flick. -Hillary Scott

I've always got on with lads, more than I have with girls. -Agyness Deyn

I've had some crazy fan experiences, yeah. Crying girls, screaming girls, a lot of butt-grabbing. -Bronson Pelletier

Once I got over the fear of writing female characters, it actually came quite easily and I was really happy with it. I just thought about girls I knew really, really well and I'd just have conversations with them and tried to relay how they talk about certain things. -Eli Roth

I write songs about fat girls and about men who run off to Mexico. -Mika

We all get old, but I always say the skinny, pretty girls will be screwed. -Paloma Faith

I am inspired by show girls and Vegas. I was a cabaret performer, so that's where all that influence comes from. -Paloma Faith

I could never muster the courage to speak to girls in my college in Pune. Most of them were Parsis and spoke English. I came from a village and could barely converse in English. -Sharad Pawar

I've always noticed that girls cry way easier than guys do. -Michael Pena

I decided in '96 to dedicate my life to mostly promoting literacy and education for girls in rural Pakistan and Afghanistan. -Greg Mortenson

I made sure that instead of people making fun of me, like every comedian probably says, I made fun of myself first so they would get distracted and just laugh. I was pretty brutally picked on for a while growing up. It was always the really pretty girls, the hot girls and then there was me. So I had to do something to get any sort of attention. -Eliza Coupe

Girl Scouts is a girl-serving organization, so our members are girls. -Anna Maria Chavez

Research shows that girls look at leadership differently than boys. -Anna Maria Chavez

Girl Scouts is such an iconic organization that it's easy to overlook how daring an idea it was for founder Juliette Gordon Low to gather those first 18 girls in that troop in Savannah, Georgia. It was 1912, after all, and women wouldn't earn the right to vote for another eight years. -Anna Maria Chavez

Simply stated, girls want role models and mentors. -Anna Maria Chavez

At Girl Scouts, we are committed to raising awareness about the terrible effects of cyber bullying, and to teaching girls how to recognize the signs of bullying of any sort and extricate themselves or another from a bad situation before it spirals out of control and ends in tragedy. -Anna Maria Chavez

The way women today are treated in Saudi Arabia is a direct result of the education our children, boys and girls, receive at school. -Basmah bint Saud

Most people use Twitter to meet girls, and I use it to meet 'American Idol' contestants! -Chris Jericho

I don't go out, so I don't get attention from girls. They're not going to have posters of me on their walls. I just try to get on with my life. -Gareth Bale

Miami is just really fun whenever I go there. It's like this post-apocalyptic Barbie world: everything is pink, and there're palm trees everywhere. But then there are also all these people in crazy sunglasses, warehouses with sick parties where all the girls are covered in spikes and black leather. It's a very weird place. -Grimes

One Direction? The young girls will grow up and forget about 'em. -Jake Bugg

Not getting girls is the story of my life. I have always had a bit of a tough time with the ladies. I don't know whether it's that I don't have game or just don't feel comfortable in my own skin, but females pick up on that. -Josh Peck

When I was younger, I was one of the few girls in the neighborhood who could break dance. That's kind of my local, ghetto-celebrity claim to fame. -Joy Bryant

I was badly bullied when I was in the seventh grade – relentlessly, mercilessly – by a group of 12-year-old girls. And it left me with a determination that no matter what, I had to throw my shoulders back, stick out my chin, and project a sense that no one and nothing could hurt me. That turned out to be a life-changing mistake. -Megyn Kelly

It took me a while to accept that I'm not going to have the curves other girls get. -Shenae Grimes

I'm the youngest of five girls, and I don't know about you, but it's really hard to be heard when you have five women. I've always been this loud and over the top as a person because I just want to be heard. -Tamar Braxton

When I was a little girl at school, I really wanted to be Katie or Sarah or Sophie. When you're a little girl at school, you want to be like the other little girls. -Viva Bianca

Teenage girls read in packs. It's true today, and it was true when I was a teen growing up in a small town in northeast Oklahoma. -Ally Carter

It's very cool to be short, very cool. When I was in eighth grade, and the height I am now, I would just look at the cute little short girls and think, 'If only, if only.' -Alison McGhee

Every kid I meet who's a reader has got something like that, their fantasy world. And science fiction is the best, especially for girls because it's the one place where you can do the forbidden. -Dorothy Allison

I don't want to play stinking, beer-ridden clubs. It depresses me even thinking about that. I really hate it when you're finished with a show and you're in your dressing room with that stink of beer and sweaty girls. It brings back an ugly picture for me. I'd hate to have to do that again. -Steve Jones

My biggest advice for girls – and this is something that I wish I could have known when I was younger – is to have thick skin. It's something that you definitely develop when you get older, but when I first started, I was so obsessed with pleasing everybody. I wanted everybody to like me and to like my songs. -Kate Voegele

I never thought then I'd be doing what I'm doing now. At my high school, being on the girls soccer team was the cool thing to do, but that was definitely never going to happen for me, so I played music. Not because everyone thought it was awesome, but for the love of it. -Kate Voegele

I write simply because I hear voices of people in my head who won't give me peace until I convey their stories to the rest of the world. Seriously. They've always been with me. While other girls played with dolls, and my brothers with Hot Wheels, I was busy traveling through space or traipsing through graveyards with my imaginary playmates. -Sherrilyn Kenyon

Unless men are active allies, we'll never end violence against women and girls. -Eve Ensler

Whatever culture, whatever country, girls are taught to please others as opposed to pleasing themselves. -Eve Ensler

We need women who are at the head of a boardroom, like at the head of the White House, at the head of kind of major scientific enterprises so that little girls everywhere can then think, you know what? I can do that, I want to do that, I will do that. -Chelsea Clinton

Girls like Diana Spencer, armed with nothing more than a guinea-pig-rearing certificate, proud to say in that old Sloane way that she was 'as thick as two short planks,' became the exception as girls from Benenden and Downe House started to fast-track towards the City and law, consultancy, media and the arts. -Peter York

I think every parent knows that, like, boys and girls are different. And we just don't take that into account in schools on those things like required reading lists. 'Cause that was my experience, say, with my son, who had to read 'Little House on the Prairie' when he was in third grade. -Jon Scieszka

For the longest time, you couldn't even say boys and girls were different. It was taboo in the educational world. -Jon Scieszka

With 'Holes' I was troubled that there weren't very many female characters. I tried to put them in where I could. But the setting didn't lend itself to girls. -Louis Sachar

Babies did not attract me, and I was altogether without the maternal sense so highly developed in small and adolescent girls. -Rita Levi-Montalcini

It may be something to do with my having been to a girls' school, but I'm far more comfortable making male friendships than female ones. My friends tend to be men and their significant others. -Joanne Harris

I've nothing against kids reading anything they please, but I do have a problem with pink books for girls and black books for boys. -Joanne Harris

I am a sucker for romance and I love girls and that is a terrible combination, because romance has the ability to overwhelm your perspective. -Joshua Harris

When I was growing up I loved reading historical fiction, but too often it was about males; or, if it was about females, they were girls who were going to grow up to be famous like Betsy Ross, Clara Barton, or Harriet Tubman. No one ever wrote about plain, normal, everyday girls. -Kathryn Lasky

American high school culture was impenetrable to me, and very cliquey: you had the Hispanics, the African Americans, the surfer guys and the goths and the immigrants. The jocks and the surfers got the girls. By the time I'd got to grips with it, I'd graduated. -Khaled Hosseini

Both of my girls have very high self-esteem because they were both able to master certain things; I should think that's good for their confidence. -Amy Chua

I've grown up with girls that are like Precious. I've grown up with people that are like everyone that I read about in that book. And so years later, when I was given the role, I just felt a huge responsibility to show the reality of that situation and to show that we're not making it up. -Gabourey Sidibe

Adapting a Judy Blume book is something I really wanted to do, and you couldn't grow up in the '90s without knowing about 'Tiger Eyes' and reading it. It should've been assigned to all teenage girls. -Willa Holland

Most teachers are not trained in how boys and girls learn differently. -Michael Gurian

Classrooms keep getting set up more and more around the verbal and less around the kinesthetic and active. They are increasingly becoming environments that favour the girls' brain. -Michael Gurian

I'm never not going to be interested in young girls who are struggling in poor places. -Michelle Tea

During the Gulf War, I remember two little third grade girls saying to me – after I read them some poems by writers in Iraq – 'You know, we never thought about there being children in Iraq before.' And I thought, 'Well those poems did their job, because now they'll think about everything a little bit differently.' -Naomi Shihab Nye

I write for young girls of color, for girls who don't even exist yet, so that there is something there for them when they arrive. I can only change how they live, not how they think. -Ntozake Shange

My girls and I regularly go through their rooms to find clothes and toys to donate to charities. I firmly believe that children who have been given so much need to experience the joy that comes from giving. -Kimora Lee Simmons

I can't stand when girls come to me and say they want to be a model, but they can't tell me who the top three photographers are in the world. They can't tell me who the top five biggest models are or name three cosmetics companies. They can't even name the top fashion magazines! You have to get it together and know your stuff. -Kimora Lee Simmons

When I was growing up in the theater there were all these amazing girls telling me about the guy who broke their heart. And I was always wishing that it was me. -Diego Luna

I had been wanting to give guitar lessons to girls because I feel like women tend to use their voice as the starting point for a song and learn a few chords, and then it ends there because then they just use their voice to flesh out a song. -Marnie Stern

I always remember responding very emotionally to film. I had a lot of lonely time on my hands because I wasn't really the best-looking kid in my town and I sort of pined after girls. I had to sort of immerse myself in the arts because girls weren't particularly interested in me. -McG

There is a reason you keep hearing about the power of educating girls in the developing world. It's a reason so simple that you will probably view it with suspicion, as I once did. It's this: educating girls works. Really works. -Richard E. Robbins

I was busy with my family, my budding career as a TV writer, my antipathy for the Los Angeles Lakers, and my general reluctance to engage in anything that might force me to leave my comfort zone. But sometimes ideas won't let you go. For me, educating girls was like that. -Richard E. Robbins

Education does loads of things for girls that won't surprise you at all – it provides self-esteem, teaches important life skills, and offers the kinds of choices a good education can give anyone. -Richard E. Robbins

The truth is, I think country music… there's a lot of great people, and just being raised the way a lot of country boys and girls are, hopefully there's just a lot of respect. -Lee Brice

I was a roving guard on the Lowell Hebrew Community Center's girls' basketball team all through high school. My specialty was stealing the ball, but my only shot was a lay-up. -Elinor Lipman

If you're a guy, you should get girls flowers all the time. They never get old and you can never get them enough. I'm never disappointed when I get flowers. I always thought guys who don't buy women flowers are such fools. All it takes is one. A little goes a long way with flowers. -Alison Brie

I was part of the first generation of girls and women to be educated and go to grammar school even if we didn't have much money. Then that generation went, 'OK, great', and went into medicine or the police, and hit this wall of discrimination from older men who hadn't caught up. -Helen Mirren

I remember when I took the role on E.R., I thought, 'I haven't really been able to play a working class woman. I've played girls, I've played funny, but I haven't played a working class woman. That sounds like something I'd like to do.' -Linda Cardellini

I meet so many pretty girls who are like, 'Here I am! Don't you want me because I look good?' That concept is so weird to me. I want to know, 'What else do you have going on?' -Malin Akerman

Where I come from, out in the suburbs, I didn't know anyone who was a professional actor. And girls that looked like me? No girls like that were on TV. -Rebel Wilson

What they do in America in all those sitcoms is hire glamorous girls and they're never that funny… that's because they've never had to develop a personality because they're hot. -Rebel Wilson

When I was younger I did karate and martial arts, and I think it's really cool for girls to have those kinds of abilities. -Rebel Wilson

I've lived with boys and girls, and I find that boys are generally cleaner than girls. Generally! This is a big generalization! -Sam Claflin

I was sort of traumatized by girls in the third grade. Because there was a girl in my third grade class I had a crush on. I bought her a box of Valentine's Day chocolate. And I put it in her cubby with a note that said something like, 'I am deeply in love with you, Your Secret Admirer.' And I didn't sign my name. -Steve Carell

In the fourth grade, I learned how to fake walking into a door. You know, you hit it with your hand and snap your head back. The girls loved it. -Will Ferrell

The ideas I'm working with are ideas I'm committed to. I don't know how to soft-shoe them. I don't know how to make them more palpable. I just never knew how to be one of those girls. I wish I knew how to be that sometimes, but I don't know how to be that way. -Carrie Mae Weems

Every great culture has cared a lot, one way or another, about the fate of its girls. -Caitlin Flanagan

Pubescent girls, it seems, are manifestly more likely to exhibit extreme and bizarre psychological symptoms than are teenage boys. -Caitlin Flanagan

I've never really been the type to dress up like the other girls do. I'm more of a casual, relaxed kind of girl. More athletic. -Katherine Webb

I've gotten used to using individual lashes as well. A lot of girls will use strip eyelashes, but the glue comes out of each side and it gets messy. Individual lashes make your eyes look bigger and much more natural. -Katherine Webb

Since 1996, the Feminist Majority Foundation has been immersed in a campaign to support Afghan women and girls in their fight against the brutal oppression of the Taliban. -Eleanor Smeal
