I intend, before the endgame looms, to die sitting in a chair in my own garden with a glass of brandy in my hand and Thomas Tallis on the iPod. Oh, and since this is England, I had better add, 'If wet, in the library.' Who could say that this is bad? -Terry Pratchett

I'm so shy now I wear sunglasses everywhere I go. -Al Pacino

I hate flatscreens. I don't want to see anything in that much pixilation. I don't need to see the pimple on someone's face. I love the world through glass. The more old, dusty and tainted that glass is, the prettier and more impressionistic that is to me. I don't need to see everything perfectly. I don't like it. -Drew Barrymore

People are constantly asking Portia and me if we are going to have children. We thought about it. We love to be around children after they've been fed and bathed. But we ultimately decided that we don't want children of our own. There is far too much glass in our house. -Ellen DeGeneres

We are at a crossroads in the music business: with the rise of the internet, the world we live in has changed, and the past is not coming back. But I see the glass as half-full: the internet and social networking are new avenues for the next Bob Dylan to be born on. -Jon Bon Jovi

I'd crawl over broken glass for Elle MacPherson or Cindy Crawford. -Jon Bon Jovi

About 15 years ago I went though a period of a year or so when I just couldn't find anything good. My wife noticed I was having trouble reading menus. I bought some cheap reading glasses in a drug store. I got home and suddenly all these books that weren't good were good. -Richard Russo

I don't do what I do to try and break a glass ceiling. -Kathryn Bigelow

But you know, I'm the negative-Nancy, curmudgeon, glass-half-empty-with-a-leak-in-it guy – which is basically the fuel that fires me up anyway. Without that, we wouldn't have me. -Maynard James Keenan

I'm blind without my glasses. -Adam Ant

When people think about computer science, they imagine people with pocket protectors and thick glasses who code all night. -Marissa Mayer

The bird, the bee, the running child are all the same to the sliding glass door. -Demetri Martin

When things get really bad, just raise your glass and stamp your feet and do a little jig. That's about all you can do. -Leonard Cohen

If I even lose my glasses or make a mistake. I become really disappointed in myself. -Kenny G

I loved every second of Catholic church. I loved the sickly sweet rotting-pomegranate smells of the incense. I loved the overwrought altar, the birdbath of holy water, the votive candles; I loved that there was a poor box, the stations of the cross rendered in stained glass on the windows. -Anne Lamott

I can't think without my glasses. -Vivienne Westwood

It is fitting that yesteryear's swashbuckling newspaper reporter has turned into today's solemn young sobersides nursing a glass of watered white wine after a day of toiling over computer databases in a smoke-free, noise-free newsroom. -Russell Baker

My natural instinct after doing something shameful is not to rush into the street boasting about it but to put on dark glasses and head for the next county, hoping nobody notices I've been in the neighborhood. -Russell Baker

When I was a little kid, all I wanted to do was to escape what I thought was the country and get to a city. Probably film and television had influenced me so much, I really thought the key to happiness was living a very artificial life in a penthouse in New York with martini glasses. -Tom Ford

A city with one newspaper, or with a morning and an evening paper under one ownership, is like a man with one eye, and often the eye is glass. -A. J. Liebling

The glass is always half empty. And cracked. And I just cut my lip on it. And chipped a tooth. -Janeane Garofalo

When you do a really good play, the audience and the performers are looking into the same looking glass, the same microscope. And the specimen they are looking at is human life and that's why I do it, that's why I like it. -John Malkovich

In the summer I wear shorts with a bright top and ankle boots or just sandals. I'll add a nice scarf, maybe a hat, some cool sunglasses. It's all about the accessories. -Alessandra Ambrosio

I love sunglasses, I have all shapes and colors. -Alessandra Ambrosio

I did once shatter a chandelier. I was singing with my college choir in Wales. I was the soloist and I hit the high note and there was this massive bang and all this glass came down from the ceiling. I'd like that to be my party trick if I can perfect it. -Katherine Jenkins

He who lives by the crystal ball will eat shattered glass. -Ray Dalio

Running a start-up is like eating glass. You just start to like the taste of your own blood. -Sean Parker

I have a lot of glass in my house, and I remember saying as a joke once that I clean my stuff with Windex while my friends are over, but then I found myself actually doing that the other day. It's horrible. -Courteney Cox

My head looks like an uncooked ham with glasses. -Chris Ware

Growing up, I was a nerd. With actual taped eyeglasses. -Taye Diggs

Well, I was always a bit of a political junkie. Even as a kid I would read biographies of presidents and of civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King and Frederick Douglass and Booker T. Washington. -John Legend

I love to work. When I was a kid, I would invite my friends over to play, then I would take them over to a recycling plant and we would haul glass all day. They hated me for this, but I thought it was fun. -James Marsters

The best advice I can give women at all levels is increase training. There are still areas where we have to break through that glass ceiling. -Hilda Solis

The Lisa Loeb Eyewear line was created to satisfy all of those people who always stop me and ask me where I get my glasses because they want some just like mine! -Lisa Loeb

I've always been scared of advertising folk. I've met them at parties and I've been to their offices and I've always found them intimidatingly cool. At one company I visited, they held their meetings in a caravan that had somehow been installed in the place, a rather more exotic place to gather than the typical BBC glass box. -Evan Davis

People challenge my nerd cred all the time. I just show them the photo of me winning my middle-school science fair, wearing my Casio calculator watch and eyeglasses so big they look like they can see the future. -Aisha Tyler

I am very short-sighted, and if I don't like a situation I take my glasses off. -Jenny Eclair

I just get so fed up with seeing the same things written about me. If I see the words 'ice queen' attached to me, I feel like banging my head against the wall. There's this perception that I can only be in a film if I have a glass of champagne in my hand and a stately home in the background. -Kristin Scott Thomas

I took out a whole fireplace and put in broken glass and installed a burner underneath, so it looks like fire on ice. I did that in my bedroom suite. I'm pretty handy. -Cory Monteith

As architects we are often involved in the concrete-steel-and-glass aspect of it, but cities are social structures, and to be involved in imagining the future of cities and the type of relationships and the types of places that we're making is something that intrigues me very much. -Michael Arad

I remember when I was growing up, I always wore glasses and so if I was on-stage or just being able to move around playing sports, I was never really able to because I had glasses holding me back. Wearing contacts has just been very helpful. -Joe Jonas

I'd been a wedding singer through college, but after a few years of doing my best renditions of jazz standards to clinking glasses and the sound of forks on salad, I thought, 'Oh God, if this is all I do, I'll never be able to live with myself.' -Idina Menzel

I've always been a glass-half-full as opposed to a glass-half-empty, and the day that changes is the day I should leave. -John Key

I care very much what the fans think. I'm starting to loosen my grip on caring about what critics say, because I think that critics care about what fans think of them, too, so there's a little bit of a refraction there, through that glass. -Dan Harmon

I am very much a person who appreciates perennial things. Things like a Lacoste shirt, a Clarks desert boot, Persol sunglasses and Vans shoes that have been the same forever. There are certain things that once you find it, you like it and it's done. I like Italian clothing, like suits from Battistoni and I have a shirt by Piero Albertelli. -Roman Coppola

But nothing beats a Woody Allen film on a Sunday night, with a glass of wine and some leftovers. -Kate Fleetwood

I have this firm belief that I am who I am for a reason. If I change something, I'm cheating myself of whatever it is I'm supposed to learn from my body. You know, I'm legally blind. I'm 20/750, since I was in fifth grade. I wear glasses and contacts. But I won't even get LASIK. -Carrie Ann Inaba

One product that you can never go wrong with is sunglasses because they are easy to misplace. I always get a couple of pairs every year. -Jessica Szohr

Holiday? Is like, what? I'm a hyperactive girl, so it may be boring for me to be on the beach doing nothing. I just need to find a place for three weeks and work but sleep in the morning, maybe write a little bit, have a glass of red wine. That's my perfect holiday. -Melanie Laurent

I have a big problem when the sanctimonious, holier than thou congressmen and women go on national television for six hours and beat somebody up with a stick, and not because I'm 'Ms. Manners.' That's not what bothers me. People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. -Bernard Goldberg

I watched TV religiously when I was a kid, but nowadays – with the Internet – there's so many people writing about TV on the Internet, that everything's sort of under a magnifying glass. -Oscar Nunez

You know, this iPhone, as a matter of fact, the engine in here is made in America. And not only are the engines in here made in America, but engines are made in America and are exported. The glass on this phone is made in Kentucky. And so we've been working for years on doing more and more in the United States. -Tim Cook

I always hated high-school shows and high-school movies, because they were always about the cool kids. It was always about dating and sex, and all the popular kids, and the good-looking kids. And the nerds were super-nerdy cartoons, with tape on their glasses. I never saw 'my people' portrayed accurately. -Paul Feig

My wife and I really enjoy a glass of red wine. We're too old to drink cheap wine, and we don't. -Paul Henderson

Life is a glass of wine and having your feet washed – it's a biblical event, might I add. This is part of mankind's story. You are always looking for a moment to take a break. -Mick Fleetwood

I played football for Leeds United under-18s, but at 17 my eyes started to go and I had to wear glasses. The football had to go – there were no contact lenses in 1957. -Geoffrey Boycott

Because I am a horrible flincher, contact lenses are not an option. I'm always envious of contact-wearers. There are endless reasons to take off one's glasses during the day and, as I have grown older, what I don't see has become increasingly pronounced. -Sloane Crosley

Educational equality doesn't guarantee equality on the labor market. Even the most developed countries are not gender-equal. There are still glass ceilings and 'leaky pipelines' that prevent women from getting ahead in the workplace. -Michelle Bachelet

I'm constantly pitching one episode where we see life through Castle's eyes. I think Castle's just a little off as far as his perception goes. A very, very clever man, but I want to see the world as Castle sees it – kind of a rose-colored glasses, all the women find him irresistible, all the guys find him super cool and do whatever he says. -Nathan Fillion

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

My father and mother are both very smart people and I always felt I was a little short of the mark. So I would compensate with a character like Logan Cale. He's wearing glasses, he's in a wheelchair, he's a computer genius. He's very far away from who I am, but I really wanted to play roles where I'd be taken seriously. -Michael Weatherly

When I was a teenager, my dad used to call me 'Hollywood' because I wore sunglasses all the time, even at night. Cue song. -Michael Weatherly

We all know that much of what we hear in life is not really so. Canned laughter and 'sweetened' applause have been TV staples for decades, and all the slamming doors, breaking glass and squealing tires you hear in movies are sound effects. -Serge Schmemann

I'm afraid I am tidy, and I have to be because the office is open plan and my glass office door is literally always open. -James Dyson

I'm not a huge fan of 3-D, though. Honestly, I think that movies are an immersive experience and an audience experience. There's nothing like seeing a film with 500 people in a theater. And there's something about putting on 3-D glasses that makes it a very singular experience for me. Suddenly I'm not connected to the audience anymore. -Todd Phillips

Don't underestimate the cosmetic power of sunglasses. It's worth spending a bit of money on a quality pair. I usually go for Dior or Louis Vuitton. -Dita Von Teese

New York used to be so much more than just a place to shop. It was life on the street for the eccentrics; it was an eccentric city. It had many different tastes. Now it's just one – a really rich one – with big tall glass buildings. -Chris Noth

To me, the glass is always half full, never half empty. -Eddie Money

I came from Bill Blass, where it was a well-oiled machine and if I said I needed a fabric, it was done. Now, I have to budget everything. I have to take on the role not just as a designer but a business. But I'm a glass half-full kind of guy. -Prabal Gurung

My glasses are from Cutler & Gross. They're not prescription: I just love wearing them. I used to wear Ray-Ban a lot and then I realised that a lot of the things I've started going for are a little bit more refined. I liked the fact that I was supporting a British brand, somebody I could have a relationship with and people that I could talk to. -Tinie Tempah

I look most like myself… when I'm wearing my black, nerdy engineering glasses. -Junot Diaz

Frederick Douglass had to teach himself how to read before standing up to defeat slavery. -Juan Williams

I have a sliding glass door on my closet, and when I slide it one way I can see all my uniforms, and the other way is all my own clothes. -Elle Fanning

I have very poor eyesight, and I can't imagine a world without my glasses or contacts. -Ellen Hollman

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

My deceased patients have taught me over the years to believe in the glass half full, to make good use of the time we have, to be generous – that was their lesson for the Uber-mind, and it was free. 'Do that,' they said, 'and then perhaps death shall have no dominion.' -Abraham Verghese

When you visit a foreign city you are in it, but not of it, separated by a glass wall. Once, while a student, I was getting dressed in my ground-floor room when a family of Italians crossed the grass to watch, as if I were laid on for their amusement and instruction. -Simon Hoggart

When color TV arrived, it just sat there and you saw color. I've been to retail stores where there were no 3-D glasses at all and the 3-D images were all blurred. People were coming in and saying, 'I don't want to buy that.' There's a lot of marketing connected to introducing technologies and especially introducing new experiences. -Howard Stringer

Justice Rehnquist was friendly and unpretentious. He wore scuffed Hush Puppy shoes. That was my first lesson. Clothes do not make the man. The Justice sported long sideburns and Buddy Holly glasses long after they were fashionable. And he wore loud ties that I am confident were never fashionable. -John Roberts

I have long believed that celebrity, the way we worship and package and sell our pop stars, is what filled the need for gods that was once filled by the pictures in stained glass. Hollywood is post-Christian Venice – in other words, a pantheon of saints without the hassle and heartache of religion. -Rich Cohen

The instruments, glassware, and chemical reagents necessary for my project were the same as my 19th-century predecessors had. -Rita Levi-Montalcini

I'm not too fond of really cool design. I've got quite kitsch taste really, in things like tableware. I'm quite a sucker for 1930s pressed glass. -Kevin McCloud

The coming and going of the seasons give us more than the springtimes, summers, autumns, and winters of our lives. It reflects the coming and going of the circumstances of our lives like the glassy surface of a pond that shows our faces radiant with joy or contorted with pain. -Gary Zukav

I'm a real low profile guy. So a date night for me is kind of curled up at home and watching something… have a nice glass of wine, a nice meal and we're all set. -Vincent Piazza

I love my lecture tours. I get up onstage. I have my stack of books and a glass of water and a microphone. No podium, no distance between me and the audience, and I just talk to people and get all excited and tell a lot of jokes, and sing some songs, and read from my work and remind people how powerful they are and how beautiful they are. -Suzan-Lori Parks

I'm not a fan of 3D as an audience member. I'm too old for it. I don't like wearing the glasses over my glasses. -Ronald Meyer

In all my years as an actor, I had never been me – I had always hidden behind my glasses, mustaches and funny voices. -Jon Pertwee

I went to Floridita on Wardour Street when I was 18. All I could afford was pumpkin soup and a glass of champagne, but it was worth it. -Karen Gillan

Every comic went through their Mitch Hedberg phase – the glasses, the hair in the face – and you knew immediately when they were doing it. -Anthony Jeselnik

Sunglasses are great, but I always feel a bit pretentious wearing sunglasses. I mean, I do love to wear them. -Daphne Guinness

People imagine I am always in a Bentley with pearls and diamonds and black glasses and Karl Lagerfeld next to me. -Ines de La Fressange

The thing that really struck me was how many firms that we think of as strictly civilian had ties to the Pentagon. Companies like Apple, Starbucks, Oakley the sunglasses manufacturer. Even Google, and a lot of big corporations like PepsiCo, Colgate-Palmolive, and Nestle, that you don't normally think of as defense contractors. -Nick Turse

I've often said that all poetry is political. This is because real poems deal with a human response to reality and politics is part of reality, history in the making. Even if a poet writes about sitting in a glass house drinking tea, it reflects politics. -Yehuda Amichai

I'm a Prada freak and I think they have great eyewear. Even though I don't need glasses, I use them as a fashion accessory. -Tony Vincent

Drama is drama, and it's really… if it's something small, you put a magnifying glass up to it; if it's something big, you use a wide lens. -Gore Verbinski

If you imagine yourself as a craftsman at ILM, you spend your days tumbling buses and animating shards of glass. You're doing a lot of visual effects work. -Gore Verbinski

There really isn't anything more refreshing then iced Coke out of the old-school glass bottles. -Mark Zupan

Many people believe that introversion is about being antisocial, and that's really a misperception. Because actually it's just that introverts are differently social. So they would prefer to have a glass of wine with a close friend as opposed to going to a loud party full of strangers. -Susan Cain

With so many forty- and fifty something mums and dads in Converse stalking the streets, I can see why there's a slew of books about the menopause and middle age, the most recent addition being David Bainbridge's plucky, glass-half-full meditation or, as he calls it, 'natural history.' -Rachel Johnson

It is wonderful to be in the country in a glass house, because no matter what happens out there, you're nice and safe, you know, cuddled in your little bed, and there it is, raging storms, snowing – wonderful. -Philip Johnson

Don't build a glass house if you're worried about saving money on heating. -Philip Johnson

I am the woman with the cool vintage glasses… I am the proud wife beside her husband… I am the writer who has written a new novel. -Ann Hood

You feel a certain way in a glass or concrete or limestone building. It has an effect on your skin – the same with plywood or veneer, or solid timber. Wood doesn't steal energy from your body the way glass and concrete steal heat. When it's hot, a wood house feels cooler than a concrete one, and when it's cold, the other way around. -Peter Zumthor

Remember to look at your glass half full and not half empty. A lot of my strength comes from God. God has given me a gift – the gift of life – and it's amazing that I live each day. -Mattie Stepanek

I used to draw stickmen with star glasses when I was at school. I didn't realise that would end up being me! The whole idea was that the glasses had mirrors, and if a youngster looked at me, they'd see themselves. Everybody is a star. -Bootsy Collins

As a screenwriter and a half-Jew, I tend to look at the glass half-empty. -John Francis Daley

I'm very good with sunglasses. There are things like… maybe headphones – either they're stolen or something – but sunglasses I tend to really hold on to. -Leigh Lezark

I buy 1920s iridescent Scottish glass. I love the way the sun hits it every morning. You touch something and you know. To me, people should buy something they love. Buy something you'd want to come downstairs and stroke. -Judith Miller

Sunglasses are a bit like watches for me – a real obsession. My favourites are Oakleys, Ray-Bans and Wileys, which are worn by the U.S. military. -Ross Kemp

The scar on my forehead is from running through a plate-glass panel when I was 15. I had 27 stitches, which took two hours. -Alan Hansen

I have quite a lot of plastic sunglasses. It's just a nice accessory, it adds a final thing, and it's my favorite way of figuring an outfit. -Marina and the Diamonds

The 'good' mother, with her fixed smile, her rigidity, her goody-goody outlook, her obsession with unnecessary hygiene, is in fact a fool. It is the 'bad' mother, unafraid of a joke and a glass of wine, richly self-expressive, scornful of suburban values, who is, in reality, good. -Rachel Cusk

The way a musical can make us feel is unlike anything else, in song and particularly in dance. I think people fly through plate-glass windows when they get shot because movies don't have dance scenes any more. This is what we do instead. -Joss Whedon

I am a man without a furnace. My windows are insulated by 19 sheets of glass which cost less than installing a heating system. -Amory Lovins

You know, anyone who wears glasses, in one sense or another, is a cyborg. -Evgeny Morozov

My studio cube is an experiment in solar heating and design. The south wall is covered with glass planks that collect and distribute heat naturally to my work studio on the second level. -Steven Holl

Every day is great for me. I dislike rose-coloured glasses. -Mark E. Smith

Apparently, I'm very good at firing a gun without blinking, which is unusual. That's why so many action characters have to wear sunglasses during shoot-out scenes. That's my party trick. -Kate Beckinsale

I drive a Prius. I always turn my faucets off. I never use plastic bottles anymore. I use glass bottles. I bring my own bags to the grocery store. And I try to use all natural shampoos and facial products. -Brooke D'Orsay

The first wine I drank, a Chateau Haut-Brion, I was 22, it was my first glass of wine, and I discovered voluptuousness. From there, I started tasting French wines, then Spanish wines, then Italian wines. -Carole Bouquet

When I was a teenager, I was fat. I was shy. I wore glasses. I had a big eyebrow and hair all over my body. They were years of torture. -Gloria Estefan

It matters whether women sit at the table. No one speaks up for you when you are standing outside with your nose pressed up against the glass. You cannot window-shop for power. -Gayle Tzemach Lemmon

The issue is not to ask your customers what they want today, but to try to imagine what the customer is going to want in a world where, for instance, their cellphone is in their glasses. -Jay S. Walker

I have an hourglass shape, and I think it's important to understand your body type and your personality type. Then make whatever is on trend and in fashion work for you. -Fiona Gubelmann

I maintain the importance of an absolute prohibition against torture, while acknowledging that even absolute prohibitions can sometimes be broken. If that is a contradiction, it is a contradiction that ethics has to embrace, or else it becomes like glass: hard, clear, but fatally inflexible. -Julian Baggini

When I was younger, I was insecure for about 10 years: I wore glasses, had a cow's lick, buck teeth and braces. I looked ridiculous. -Jack Whitehall

Just because we say networks are important doesn't mean that networks explain everything. We're just adding additional information. Networks don't work like a match – they work like a magnifying glass. -Nicholas A. Christakis

In an age where everything and everyone is linked through networks of glass and air, no one – no business, organization, government agency, country – is an island. We need to do right by all our stakeholders, and that's how you create value for shareholders. And one thing is for sure – no organization can succeed in a world that is failing. -Don Tapscott

It is a symbol of Irish art. The cracked looking-glass of a servant. -James Joyce

When I started on 'Saturday Night Live,' I had the choice of wearing contact lenses, which I had never worn before, or glasses, in order to be able to read the cue cards. -Tina Fey

I think people fetishize glasses in general. You could put glasses on a rotting pumpkin and people would think it was sexy. -Tina Fey

I've got to wear sunglasses everywhere, all the time, even if its indoors or at night time, to be recognized. That's part of my job. I cannot take off my sunglasses. For me, staying in the United States was so dark because I can't take them off. -Psy

I'm really proud of being part of that whole geek/chic, girl nerds, glasses are sexy and all of that because I think it's true. In America, I don't know about in other places, but there is this mythology about the way a woman is supposed to be and look and act and that's what makes them sexy. And I love being the alternative to that. -Kirsten Vangsness

I met Jack Nicholson when I was about 10 at a party of my uncle's, and it wasn't so much that I knew his films because I was small, but he wore sunglasses inside at night and I thought that must mean he was very important and was suitably star struck by his charismatic presence. -Emilia Fox

I like an occasional glass of wine, though I don't drink before a shoot or a show – blotchy skin is not a good idea, however good your make-up artist. -Jourdan Dunn

I think that we see Steve Jobs as the genius speaker in the mock black turtleneck with the round glasses, sort of beautifully delivering his new product, and I think that for people to understand that he started in a garage. -Joshua Michael Stern

People who live in glass houses… have to answer the door. -Karl Pilkington

There have been times in my life when I have felt like I can't go out without my makeup on. But now I just put on some dark glasses so people can't see if I look rough! -Keeley Hawes

I am lucky because my family are comfortably off. My father has his own glass business. -Rafael Nadal

I was a little fat pudgy kid with big thick glasses, and I was quiet and never said a word, you know – teachers loved me, straight-A student. -Morgan Fairchild

I grew up with low self-esteem. I didn't think I was very pretty. I had glasses, red hair and was generally quite a spod. -Mark Gatiss

I collect Hot Wheels. I collect glass. I collect coins. And I collect cards. -Nolan Gould

I do still get shocked every once in a while when I catch my reflection when I'm walking past a glass building, but it's in my mind about getting older and finding out what I'm going to look like as it unfolds – or as it folds, depending on where the marks and scars land. -Dave Matthews

Culturally, I have always been part of the proletariat. I lived side by side with the sons of glassblowers, fishermen and smugglers. The stories they told were shaper satires about the hypocrisy of authority and the middle classes, the two-facedness of teachers and lawyers and politicians. I was born politicized. -Dario Fo

It's kind of shocking to me, actually, that I've almost been stereotyped, in a way – physically – because, I didn't get good grades in school; I got in a lot of fights. I wear glasses because I don't want something tugging my eyeball, but I wouldn't consider myself a 'nerd.' I don't know what really makes someone a nerd. -Charlyne Yi

I can honestly say I love getting older. Then again, I never put my glasses on before looking in the mirror. -Cherie Lunghi

I wondered what would be the most humiliating way possible to be turned into a vampire – a story that a vampire would be embarrassed to share with their vampire buddies over a nice glass of Type O. -Molly Harper

I have two pairs of reading glasses. One pair is for reading fiction, the other for non-fiction. I've read the Bible twice wearing each pair, and it's the same. -Steven Wright

I don't know how to have a normal relationship because I try to act normal and love from a normal place and live a normal life, but there is sort of an abnormal magnifying glass, like telescope lens, on everything that happens. -Taylor Swift

I like writing books. I'd rather be at home with my wife. I can write, take a break, come out, have a glass of tea, give my wife a kiss, and go back in and write some more. It's not so bad. I am really lucky. -Gene Wilder

My father once said, 'If you're in the desert and you're dying of thirst, are you going to drink a glass of blood or are you going to drink a glass of water?' I think what he was trying to say, interesting coming from my blood father, is sometimes there are people in your family that can be toxic. -Nicolas Cage

Life is more than sunglasses and hit movies. Reality – that's the main event. -Sylvester Stallone

In Los Angeles, I drive a hybrid and live in a very simple home. Anything you do from carrying a canteen of water to starting a recycling program in your office makes a difference. Reusing what you already have has always been green – from clothes to boxes to glass jars from the supermarket. -Rachel Boston

The work that I've gotten in the hiatuses seems to indicate that I will have a little more work after 'Mad Men' than I did when I was scraping by while I was temping in New York, but who knows? People very easily could be like, 'Meh, we're done with that. We've got Jon Hamm. We're good without the weird one with glasses.' -Rich Sommer

I have a carbohydrate and protein-rich diet. For breakfast, I typically have two slices of bread with butter or jam, four to five eggs – boiled or fried – a few bananas and a glass of milk. -Vijender Singh

I can't switch time zones any more. London is one of my favourite places, but I'm always so zonked that I can't appreciate it. It's like a six-inch sheet of glass between me and Charing Cross Road. -Douglas Coupland

I never thought I was breaking a glass ceiling. I just had to do what I had to do, and it never occurred to me not to. -Marian Wright Edelman

The content of Saul Leiter's photographs arrives on a sort of delay: it takes a moment after the first glance to know what the picture is about. You don't so much see the image as let it dissolve into your consciousness, like a tablet in a glass of water. -Teju Cole

We all come to the point where it's time to get yourself straight, as a businesswoman, a mother, whatever you are in life. It's tough love but it's also being real with yourself. It's important to take those rose-coloured glasses off and see what's going on. -Kelly Rowland

I'm from L.A., so I'm used to seeing people in sunglasses and flip-flops. There's something so romantic about a man in a scarf and a knitted hat. -Meghan Markle

I've had laser eye surgery and I don't wear glasses any more, so people just go, 'You're not Damien Hirst.' I don't get recognized on the street. -Damien Hirst

There is an eternal humanity that crosses through all people, and it's more interesting often when it's about struggle – not people with champagne glasses. -Jacqueline Bisset

I enjoy a glass of wine, and I love my football. I suppose it's because I'm a real working-class. -Rod Stewart

If I need to cheer myself up, I will put on some fabulous '40s musical on video. But I'm very lucky; I seldom get depressed. Without question, I'm a 'glass half full' person. In fact, it's three-quarters full! -Joan Collins

You can't reinvent the wheel. I remember when we first started out at 'Late Night,' we were trying to hire directors, and this guy was like, 'I see you behind a glass desk.' I don't. And he's like, 'Yeah, the glass desk.' I go, 'I don't really see me as a glass desk guy.' -Jimmy Fallon

When I played the Sahara Hotel in Las Vegas on New Year's Eve, I got to bring Wiley, my 85-pound black lab. He's responsible for my favorite New Year's memory of all: At the end of the show, he ran onstage and then out across all the tables in the showroom, sending champagne glasses and gamblers flying. -Elayne Boosler

My clothes have always got a very strong dynamic rapport with the body – they are very body conscious, they help you to look glamorous, more hourglass, more woman. -Vivienne Westwood

The theater remains relevant because of 3D. It makes it an event. You go there, 400 people put on their glasses, and it's just fun. -Evan Goldberg

At some point in every person's life, you will need an assisted medical device – whether it's your glasses, your contacts, or as you age and you have a hip replacement or a knee replacement or a pacemaker. The prosthetic generation is all around us. -Aimee Mullins

A Hubble Space Telescope photograph of the universe evokes far more awe for creation than light streaming through a stained glass window in a cathedral. -Michael Shermer

I'm building a glass pyramid over the Egyptian escalator where my body will be mummified, so my customers can come and see me forever. -Mohamed Al-Fayed

I have my misgivings about 3-D. I don't like the lack of blacks and whites, how it dulls the image, how the color gets corrupted. I don't necessarily like the experience of having heavy glasses in front of me. -Alfonso Cuaron

It's very important for the parents of young autistic children to encourage them to talk, or for those that don't talk, to give them a way of communicating, like a picture board, where they can point to a glass of milk, or a jacket if they're cold, or the bathroom. -Temple Grandin

I feel badly for those girls who have to be so waif thin, doing those catwalks all the time because, luckily, we're going into a different time – that's what they're saying, at least – in we're appreciating a curvier figure. But to be honest, I couldn't be like an hourglass if I tried. -Chrissy Teigen

Sometimes I take off my skully and wear glasses, so I've gotta brush and make sure my hairline is straight. -French Montana

I would say a lack of sleep is a cause for feeling not so beautiful. On those days, I try to drink lots of water and put on the biggest sunglasses I can find. -Kourtney Kardashian

Life is shining a light through a magnifying glass on me, looking for me to stumble. I think that's my biggest fear. -Lily Cole

Art used to be made in the name of faith. We made cathedrals, we made stained-glass windows, we made murals. -Julia Cameron

We always look at the 'Fortune 500,' and we say, men in power, but we don't look at the glass cellar as opposed to the glass ceiling and say, men also are the homeless, men are also the ones that are the garbage collectors. Men are also the ones dying in construction sites that aren't properly supervised for safety hazards. -Warren Farrell

I don't see the future as bright, language-wise. I see it as a glass half empty – and evaporating quickly. -Dick Cavett

My dad's an artist, and my grandfather paints – he's not a painter; my grandfather's a butcher – but he does a lot of crafts, stained glass, painting, that stuff. There is art in our family, and I was an art major in college along with being a theater major. -Brett Dalton

Other brands I like besides Versace… Tom Ford makes incredible suits. I love the glasses as well. I have a plethora of Tom Ford shades. Who else do I like? Dolce & Gabbana, Dior Homme. -Trey Songz

I don't really do glasses. It's a good look, but I'm not big on wearing clear glasses for fashion. And I don't wear too many shades because my fans love to see my eyes. -Trey Songz

My mum taught me a lot about fashion in terms of knowing what looks good on you and developing my own sense of style. Even when we were shooting the Sunglass Hut campaign, we went through racks of clothing together, and ultimately I decided on a short, more fitted peplum dress, while Mum opted for a sexy blazer and black leggings. -Georgia May Jagger

To me, wearing glasses is no pleasure, but once I conceded that I simply couldn't properly judge distance without them, I began to experiment. I tried glasses and found them uncomfortable. I switched to contact lenses, and they also bothered me. -Arnold Palmer

At its best, a live show is completely transcendent. The image I get is breaking through glass or shooting out into the free zone. -Alex Ebert

I'm so tired of this vision of fashion of a diva with a big ego, and you think of big dark glasses to be pretentious and keep far away from the people. -Carine Roitfeld

Karl Lagerfeld looks very tough because of the glasses, and he has all these rings and the leather gloves, and he's so smart. But he's a very nice person… when he comes into a room or studio, he is going to say hello to each person, and the same when he leaves. -Carine Roitfeld

Go outside! I mean, even leaves from a park are beautiful in a clear glass vase. I'd rather see that than fake anything any day. -Nate Berkus

I always had this New York fantasy of living in a glass high-rise. -Nate Berkus

Writers are outsiders. Even when we seem like insiders, we're outsiders. We have to be. Our noses pressed to the glass, we notice everything. We mull and interpret. We store away clues, details that may be useful to us later. -Dani Shapiro

I was raised in an observant Jewish household, so for me, Hebrew prayers – the sounds, the sunlight streaming in from the stained-glass windows of a synagogue – bring my father back to me as surely as if he were sitting next to me, my head pressed against his shoulder. -Dani Shapiro

The more success you get, you start to be harder on yourself or more afraid of the looking glass. You have to learn to build a thicker skin because people are paying more attention. -Idina Menzel

I wear glasses and suits, so I guess I am an indie artist. -Stevie Jackson

My mother felt we'd be earning a living during our entire adult lives, and therefore believed we should spend summers in learning activities. Consequently, I got to see a plate glass factory in Pittsburgh, a U.S. Steel plant, and how Heinz made ketchup. -Patricia A. Woertz

A poor self-image is the magnifying glass that can transform a trivial mistake or an imperfection into an overwhelming symbol of personal defeat. -David D. Burns

I am the first one to go to university in my family. I am the first writer as well. My dad is a retired policeman, and my mom works for a glass-processing company. She is health-and-safety manager, and my stepfather is a plumber. I have four half siblings, one from my mom's marriage and three from my dad's marriage, so we are kind of scattered. -Samantha Shannon

I have spent many hours on the beach collecting sea glass, and I almost always wonder, as I bend to pick up chunk of bottle green or a shard of meringue white, what the history of the glass was. Who used it? Was it a medicine bottle? A bit of a ship's lantern? Is that bubbled piece of glass with the charred bits inside it from a fire? -Anita Shreve

I was that kid with the glasses and the hungry expression who haunted every library book sale and used bookstore in town: the one who always has a book in one hand and is reaching for the next book with the other. There's one in every town. -Seanan McGuire

I love to go to the airports and just put on, like, dark glasses, so nobody can tell I'm staring at them, and just draw people. -Pete Docter

'In-between' is sort of – an animator does the key poses. He'll do extremes, you know, like a character reaching out for a glass of water and then another one of him drinking. And the in-betweener has to do all the drawings that goes between those two. You know it could be 12, 23 whatever in-betweens. -Pete Docter

In my new IFC comedy game show, 'Bunk,' we actually use our intern Patrick as a human timer – giving contestants the time it takes for him to wade through a bag of broken glass for a razor blade, to get gum out of his hair, to pick up every strand from a box of spaghetti I spill on the floor, etc, etc. -Kurt Braunohler

There are lots of things, including changing the kind of inner dialog, that can mitigate anxiety. And yes, there are people who have the glass half full and glass half empty, and I'm afraid the glass is going to break and I'll cut myself on the shards. -Scott Stossel

Don't keep excessive amounts of anything. Those glass vases that come from florists. Those ketchup packets that come with take-out food. A house with two adults probably doesn't need fifteen mismatched souvenir coffee cups. -Gretchen Rubin

A beach is not only a sweep of sand, but shells of sea creatures, the sea glass, the seaweed, the incongruous objects washed up by the ocean. -Henry Grunwald

It's hard to shape glass. It took me years of practice, and as a result, I've never gotten bored with it. It's difficult. Every time I come into the studio, I've got some sort of new challenge. And something that I would like to learn how to do better, and the material never disappoints me. -Jim McKelvey

Glass really rewards risk. A lot of times with glass, you're just waiting for the piece to cool down or for some temperature to adjust, and there's split seconds where you've got a fraction of a second where you get to make a move a particular way, and you don't get to repeat it if you do it wrong. -Jim McKelvey

My writing partner, Nicki, and I became obsessed with a monologist who performs unscripted shows equipped with nothing more than scribbled bullet points and a glass of water. We wrote him a fan letter and found ourselves sharing lunch and eventually a friendship. -Emma McLaughlin

It's commonly said that if slaughterhouses had clear glass walls, nobody would eat meat. I think people go out of their way to remain ignorant about how factory farm animals are treated. -Steve-O

It's so ironic – when you finally achieve recognition, you hide behind dark glasses. -Madhuri Dixit

I'm a green tea addict, though the occasional glass of red wine is nice, too. -Shilpa Shetty

If your insides are not well looked-after, then your outsides are going to suffer. It's like a glass that's not cleaned from the inside. Whatever you do to polish it from the outside, it's still going to look dirty. So that's the analogy. -Shilpa Shetty

It's funny, one of the reasons why I never wear my glasses any more is that, when I was younger, a guy once said that he liked me until he found out that I wear glasses. -Danielle Panabaker

I was always the biggest nerd in school: I had very few friends; I was always picked on; I used to wear really big glasses. I was the epitome of a nerd. -Danielle Panabaker

As far as a glass ceiling, I feel that all you can do is give it your absolute best with whatever gifts the universe has given you. And if you make it in some way that other people can recognize, that's fine. But even if you don't quote-unquote make it, you're fine if you've given it your whole heart and soul. -Alice Walker

I can't disguise myself with a wig and dark glasses – the wheelchair gives me away. -Stephen Hawking

There's as much revealed in the way a person lifts a glass as in what they say about some political issue. -Rosemary Mahoney

Always have something beautiful in sight, even if it's just a daisy in a jelly glass. -H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

If anyone looks back to the '70s, '80s with nostalgic rosy colored glasses and goes, 'Well, everything was awesome.' No, everything was not awesome! -John Oates

The term 'glass ceiling' was coined in 1984. More than 20 years later, the ceiling has barely cracked. There isn't a single country in the world that has as many female as male politicians. In business, the situation is even worse. Its highest echelon – the board – remains a chauvinist's dream. -Noreena Hertz

I'm happy in Lululemon, with a glass of red wine, watching HGTV. -Wendy Davis

Repetition creates pattern. If I have a hundred of these, a hundred of those, it doesn't make any difference what these and those are. If I can repeat anything, I have the possibility of a pattern from hickory nuts and chicken eggs, shards of glass, branches. It doesn't make any difference. -Dan Phillips

I come from a place where there's violence and inarticulacy. I worked in a pub from the age of 12 or 13. I used to see people smashing glasses over each other. I was never tough. I was scared of them. -Eddie Marsan

I used to do stop motion in my own garage and Claymation and all that stuff. That led to doing backgrounds and matte paintings. I started doing matte paintings professionally back before the computer, sort of painting on glass. -Robert Stromberg

Every so often, we all gaze into the abyss. It's a depressing fact of life that eventually the clock expires; eventually the sand in the hourglass runs out. It's the leaving behind of everything that matters to us that hurts the most. -Ben Shapiro

Did we not all grow up saying we had to have four glasses of whole milk a day for healthy bones? It's ridiculous. It's liquid cholesterol. -Steve Wynn

I have never met a successful person who talked about failing. The glass is always half full. I don't even like being around negative talkers. -Sir Mix-a-Lot

I do like silver. I love antiques. I collect Georgian glass at home. When you think about how fragile that it is and think about how long these things have lasted – some of it is 400 years old – I find the history of these things extraordinary. -Anthony Warlow

With learning lines, before I had Alfie, I'd put it off and think, 'Oh, I'll just have a glass of wine and then do it later,' but when you've finally got a child to bed and you know you've only got an hour, then you achieve so much. -Lesley Manville

The model I came up with in 1964 is just the invention of a rather strange sort of medium that looks the same in all directions and produces a kind of refraction that is a little bit more complicated than that of light in glass or water. -Peter Higgs

It is hard being a football loather, a football unfan. I sometimes feel as lonely as the sole survivor in the last reel of a Zombie film, as, one by one, old friends reveal themselves, with their glassy stares and outstretched arms, to have succumbed to the lure. -Craig Brown

What I envisioned back in the 1970s was this thing you would wear as 'glass' over your right eye, and you could see the world though that glass. The glass then reconfigures the things you see. -Steve Mann

There will be Apple Glass, and Google Glass, and RIM Glass. These companies are all working on glass. I think everyone is going to be making glass. I think we're also going to have a glass war instead of a smartphone war. -Steve Mann

I like to have glasses for day and night. -Brad Goreski

Putting on a new pair of glasses or sunglasses is a simple way to completely transform your look – just like a new hairstyle. -Brad Goreski

As Indian women, we are always balancing work, life, home, etc. It's important to know that while juggling rubber balls and glass balls, the former may bounce back when you miss, but the glass balls will crack if you let them fall. So prioritise, prioritise, prioritise. -Nita Ambani

Maybe a day will come when we may have to just put on a pair of glasses and see sports events. -Kapil Dev

I wore my same look for six years. My hat and glasses – people recognize me now. -Theophilus London

A secret talent or hobby… Hmm… I weirdly collect shot glasses. -Austin Mahone

Glamour invites us to live in a different world. It has to simultaneously be mysterious, a little bit distant – that's why, often in these glamour shots, the person is not looking at the audience, it's why sunglasses are glamorous – but also not so far above us that we can't identify with the person. -Virginia Postrel

'The Matrix' is a movie that is all about glamour. I could do a whole talk on 'The Matrix' and glamour. It was criticized for glamorizing violence, because, look – sunglasses and those long coats, and, of course, they could walk up walls and do all these kinds of things that are impossible in the real world. -Virginia Postrel

We've gone from a world in which Starbucks set a cutting-edge standard for mass-market design to a world in which Starbucks establishes the bare minimum. If your establishment can't come up with an original look, customers expect at least some sleek wood fixtures, nicely upholstered chairs, and faux-Murano glass pendant lights. -Virginia Postrel

From the days of biplanes and silk scarves, the aviator has been the archetype of masculine glamour. Aviators have personified national ideals, from French elan to Soviet party discipline. They've inspired lust and admiration. They've turned sunglasses and short, utilitarian leather jackets into fashion statements. -Virginia Postrel

A simple, well-proven surgery can restore sight to millions, and something even simpler, a pair of glasses, can make millions more see. -Thulasiraj Ravilla

The difference between the Parthenon and the World Trade Center, between a French wine glass and a German beer mug, between Bach and John Philip Sousa, between Sophocles and Shakespeare, between a bicycle and a horse, though explicable by historical moment, necessity, and destiny, is before all a difference of imagination. -Guy Davenport

Nutrition doesn't have to be complicated. It goes back to the lessons you learned as a kid. Start with a real breakfast; don't ever skip that. If you're waking up early for a run, make sure you drink at least a glass of water and put something healthy into your stomach before you go out the door. -Summer Sanders

I'm petrified of spiders. I hate them. I sleep with a glass of water beside my bed every night. I woke up once to take a sip of water and almost swallowed a dead one floating in the glass. -Kyle Schmid

I always have two pairs of glasses: geeky black Warby Parker frames and Wayfarer Ray Bans. Those are key! -Christa Miller

I hate wearin' sunglasses, to be honest with you. You don't need sunglasses in Ireland. -Tristan MacManus

If I had five minutes to live, I don't think I'd be bothered singing a song. I'd be dead, so it won't really matter. I'd have a glass of wine and a cigarette. -Loudon Wainwright III

Anything looks good if you've got the body of a Victoria's Secret model and the porelessly smooth skin-tone of a piece of glass. -Kate Reardon

I used to have really bad skin, and when I was younger, I had a lazy eye. I had to wear a patch and pink-rimmed glasses. -Georgia Salpa

Everyone should wake up and have a fresh-squeezed orange every day. By having a fresh glass of orange juice with American oranges, you are supporting the local economy, you have all the vitamin C you need in a day, and you support the environment because you don't use any plastic from bottles or bags. -Jose Andres

My wife turns me onto shows. I do end up watching them. She has to drag me in there, and when she does, I enjoy it. 'Glee' was one of those things for the first year, especially – I got into that. I would sit down with a glass of wine and get into that. I even have a 'Glee' CD in my car. -Mark Pellegrino

I love a good steak with a great glass of red wine. But for the TV watching, laying around doing nothing kinds of days, nothing beats a pepperoni pizza and chocolate Haagen Daas. -Erin Daniels

I'm creative in my own life. I'm creative when I step out the door. I'm creative when I pick up a glass. Do you know what I mean? I'm one of those dreadful people who probably should have been born at the end of the 19th century and been in cafe society. That would have suited me fine. -Jaye Davidson

I used to wear Clark Kent glasses, ever since I was in college. I used to have those Army-issue glasses, and they used to be those black glasses Clark Kent used to wear. And I wore those for years. -Mark Valley

I wore glasses my whole life, but then I got Lasik eyeball surgery, and I fixed that. -Ryan Eggold

I have numerous clear glasses at home. I probably have thirty pairs. I think it started for acting. I have tons of clothes that just sit there. But if that one role comes up, I'm going to want that shirt. And I have glasses for that, too. -Ryan Eggold

People really give you a hard time when you wear fake glasses out to a bar. -Ryan Eggold

The way glass can be molded or blown or cut into any kind of shape made me think about how we as people – our characters or souls – can be shaped or changed by outside influences. -Lisa Kleypas

I pay attention to the sun. I've worn sunglasses while I play, for years, and apply sunscreen. No matter where I'm playing, there's a rain suit in my bag, too. -Louis Oosthuizen

Paradigms are like glasses. When you have incomplete paradigms about yourself or life in general, it's like wearing glasses with the wrong prescription. That lens affects how you see everything else. -Sean Covey

I'm not a crazy granola person. I like to wear beautiful clothes, and I like having a glass of wine, but it doesn't mean I don't work out every day and drink green juices. -Phoebe Tonkin

I don't really go out that much, if I'm honest. I'm quite a recluse. If I had my way, I'd probably be at home most of the time with a book and a cup of tea or glass of wine. -Amber Le Bon

I will say that I do gravitate more towards quirkier guys. I always date guys who wear glasses. -Jillian Rose Reed

I stumbled upon the 3×1 shop because it's a few doors up from the 'V' magazine offices on Mercer. The store is intense: They can take your measurements, and the sewers are right there behind glass making what amounts to a couture pair of jeans. -Derek Blasberg

The problem with relegating black history to one really short month, the shortest month, is not only are we telling the same stories over and over again – which are amazing, George Washington Carver is incredible, there's nobody like Frederick Douglass – but there are so many. -Karyn Parsons

My mother is teaching me Indian recipes. I'll go to the market, get everything fresh, have a glass of red wine, and just do it. I find it really therapeutic. -Sendhil Ramamurthy

I don't want to treat my little girl like she's made out of glass or wrap her in bubble wrap or anything! And I also don't want to be constantly correcting her or warning her. Or my least favorite, reprimanding her. -Constance Marie

I'm nostalgic for the future I knew as a kid. Back then, it was a lovely, bleepy, heavenly land populated by svelte men in white polo necks, who would lounge on big white sofas sipping blue wine from big glass globes, beside women like the ones on the covers of Hedkandi chill out compilations. -Peter Baynham

One of the things 'Minecraft' is most noted for is the freedom it gives the players to build and experiment with the tools. You start off with simple objects; axes, torches, helmets and swords. With a little time and experimentation, you move to switches, complex machines, mine carts, glass. -Rob Manuel

I didn't do so well in the academic world, so I think the only way I could express myself was through visual art – anything I could get my hands on, whether it was glassblowing, sculpture, painting, or photography. I always wanted to be a painter. Or a farmer. -Steven Klein

I like the fact that glass ceilings are breaking all over. -Nancy Gibbs

Enter politics, and you enter the glass house; there are no secrets and no places to hide. -Nancy Gibbs

I wear sunglasses because of the glare of the spotlights. I wear gloves because it is very cold in the U.K. -Vincent Tan

I ate no butcher's meat, lived chiefly on fruits, vegetables, and fish, and never drank a glass of spirits or wine until my wedding day. To this I attribute my continual good health, endurance, and an iron constitution. -John James Audubon

I like to go hiking. I like to go rappelling, swimming, biking. I go boogie-boarding. I collect Hot Wheels. I collect glass. I collect coins. And I collect cards. -Nolan Gould

In Japan, more than in any other country I've ever been in, one is not supposed to write about the people in the glass bubble; that is why they are in the glass bubble. -John Burnham Schwartz

In grade school, I was a complete geek. You know, there's always the kid who's too short, the one who wears glasses, the kid who's not athletic. Well, I was all three. -Julianne Moore

I didn't want to go to college – I was bored by junior high. So I was in church one day, staring at the stained glass windows and thinking about things, when suddenly I decided that if I could start selling cartoons to magazines, they'd let me quit high school. -Brad Holland

I'm afraid Eddie the Eagle was before my time. All I know is that his glasses were three times thicker than mine, but I can jump three times further than he did. -Simon Ammann

I see wrinkles and lines, and wear glasses to read, which I hate. But I am in a better place in my body than I used to be. -Bonnie Langford

Global warming will threaten our crops, so natural food will be scarce. Hourglass, curvy bodies will be the aspirational beauty standard, representing that those women have access to bounties of fulfilling yet healthy food, which means they are affluent. -Tyra Banks

I fell off a chair onto a broken water glass when I was 3 years old. -Buddy Lester

We've heard a lot in recent polemic about how to win the fight for the corner office. But pushing up against a glass ceiling is practically a luxury when you consider the millions of women who can feel the floor dropping beneath their feet. -Tina Brown

A Joan Crawford dress looks really good on an hourglass figure. -Trinny Woodall

The house I grew up in had large plate-glass windows, which birds frequently crashed into headfirst. My father helped me assemble a bird hospital, consisting of a few shoe boxes, some old rags, and tiny dishes for water and food. -Patti Davis

'Behind The Candelabra' is an HBO movie. It's the Liberace story. Michael Douglass and Matt Damon. I play a small part in it. I play a choreographer who introduces, brings Matt Damon to Las Vegas for the first time. -Scott Bakula

When I started in 1978, the greatest wine in Spain, Vega Sicilia, wasn't even imported to the United States. The alleged greatest Australian wine, Penfolds Grange, wasn't imported to the United States. There were no by-the-glass programs. Sommeliers were intimidating. -Robert M. Parker, Jr.

You should drink at least eight glasses of water a day in order to stay regular, lose weight, and detoxify. Our bodies are mostly made of water, and yet we lose two to three quarts of it every day through perspiration and other bodily functions. -Suzanne Somers

My interest in art must have started with my Catholic upbringing. Art was everywhere: churches with its paintings, sculptures, stained glass, textiles, and fine metalwork. -Cheech Marin

Days off are few and far between in the restaurant business. But on an hour off, I like to have a glass of wine with my wife. -Geoffrey Zakarian

For watching sports, I tend to drink Guinness; early evenings always begin well with a Grey Goose and tonic with plenty of lime; and on a cold winter's night, there's nothing quite like a glass of Black Maple Hill… an absolute peach of a bourbon. -Martin Bashir

No one realized that I needed eyeglasses until I was 12 years old. My parents were writers, so I was around the sounds of words and developed a vocabulary with my sense of hearing. I play guitar by ear. -Roger McGuinn

I'm a bit of a wine snob and like a glass of Chateaux Margaux '82 with a meal or to unwind. -Suzi Quatro

I've got more than 600 pairs of Ray-Ban sunglasses, from 1950s originals to newer models. I have them on the wall like opticians do so I can pick out a pair that goes with my outfit. I had around 30 pairs, then my husband Rainer started getting them for me as birthday and Christmas gifts. -Suzi Quatro

I'm not very much of a foodie; I like small amounts of delicious things, but I've never overeaten – I'd much rather have a glass of wine. -Felicity Kendal

In every era going back to Lincoln with Frederick Douglass, presidents talk to those that were leading at that time. -Al Sharpton

When you're 5 ft. 5 in., have a round Jewish face and wear glasses and refuse to wear contacts, you're going to get offered certain parts. People thought of me as the nerdy guy, even in non-nerdy parts like 'Parenthood.' I didn't feel the need to change anything I was doing – I embraced it. -Rick Moranis

I have forty-six cookbooks. I have sixty-eight takeout menus from four restaurants. I have one hundred and sixteen soy sauce packets. I have three hundred and eighty-two dishes, bowls, cups, saucers, mugs and glasses. I eat over the sink. I have five sinks, two with a view. -Rick Moranis

I'm getting to the end of my magnifying glasses now. One eye's gone completely. The other is gradually dimming. Dimming – that sounds very dramatic, doesn't it? I'm so lucky. I can still make a living – and the same kind of living. -Sue Townsend

I benefit from the Mr. Potato Head syndrome. Put a wig and a nose and glasses on me, and I disappear. -Phil Hartman

I'm very much a glass-half-full person. -Brian O'Driscoll

The early '20s were like the waist of an hourglass. Lots of things were hurtling toward it and squeezing through it and then hurtling out the other side. -Sarah Waters

The scariest stunt I've ever done was on 'Captain America.' We were doing some underwater sequence. I was in a submarine, and Chris Evans had to break the glass, and the water had to fill up quickly in the submarine. -Richard C. Armitage

I'm blind in my left eye. Contrary to what people say, it is not a glass eye, so I have to protect my eyes at all cost. -Stuart Scott

The fun of sitting around Pangong Lake with 40 guys around a fireplace, having a glass of wine… staying in one camp together… that's an experience. Waking up at 5 in the morning, watching the sun come up. You don't do these things in Bombay. -Gautam Singhania

I certainly came up in an era where women were really making strides and making a point to beat down doors and find their place and crash through the glass ceiling. -Gina Torres

I was the kind of reader in smudged pink harlequin glasses sitting on the cool, dusty floor of the Arrandale public library, standing at the edge of the playground, having broken a tooth in dodge ball, and lying under my covers with a flashlight. -Amy Bloom

I lost dozens of pairs of expensive glasses because I'd put them down and then not be able to find them again. -Bonnie Tyler

The first book I ever bought for myself was 'One Fish Two Fish' by Dr. Seuss. My favourite page shows two children carrying an enormous glass jar up some stairs in the dark. In the jar is a tusked beflippered creature floating in brine. -Mini Grey

I'm a humanist. I always believed, even with Cirque du Soliel, that this is my way to contribute to a better world. I believe I'm very privileged, but many people face the reality when they wake up in the morning of not having food or a glass of water. Life's been good to me, and I believe you have to feed the circle of life. -Guy Laliberte

I know a lot of people that had one cancer that are not alive today. I've had three. So my glass is much more than half full. -Hamilton Jordan

We're now able to 3D print in 200 different materials, from titanium to rubber, plastic, glass, ceramic, leathers, and even chocolate. -Peter Diamandis

You should have seen me at 14, with braces and glasses, gangly and doing ballet! -Margot Robbie

Let us think of Nature as a builder, making all that we see out of atoms of a limited number of kinds, just as the builder of a house constructs it out of so many different kinds of things: bricks, slates, planks, panes of glass, and so on. -William Henry Bragg

I do yoga every day, some sport, have a meal once a day, eat some fruit, and drink one glass of wine. And once a month I gather together my close friends. But my wife and I do not like conspicuous luxury. -Bidzina Ivanishvili

If someone paid me a million dollars to drink a glass of milk, I wouldn't do it; maybe that's because I don't need the money. -David H. Murdock

How could I share with you how I felt when two towers that I loved, two pieces of steel and glass and concrete fell down, when actually they took with them thousands of human lives? That is the actual tragedy. But those towers were almost human for me. I was in love with them, and that's why I married them with a tight rope. -Philippe Petit

At my core, the glass isn't half-empty – it's not even what I ordered in the first place. -Catherine Tate

When I'm with the wife, and we're having a romantic night, I occasionally think about a glass of red wine, but I'll order a sparkling water. I'd like the wine, but it wouldn't end with one glass, so I don't even go there. -Dave Gahan

My mother has had breast cancer twice. And my mother has always been this very positive human being: a glass-half-full type. Like, when she was in treatment and feeling really bad, she would always talk about some nurse that was particularly nice to her. -Susanne Bier

Even when I'm sitting up in this glass castle, I still got my street soldiers telling me what's happening. -Tracy Morgan

On the manufacturing side, surfing was a lot harder than sailing. You had to find guys who could shape, who could glass, and you're looking for good people among all these surfers, you know. Keeping the quality up was always a problem. -Hobart Alter

If you have only a glass of water, then one person can drink. If you have a bucket, a whole family can benefit. -Chen Guangbiao

Playing clubs is the ultimate – you see the faces; you hear the 'clicking' glasses – I love all that atmosphere and seeing people's mouths singing the words to the songs. -Vonda Shepard

Don't throw stones at your neighbors if your own windows are glass. -Benjamin Franklin

In its primary aspect, a painting has no more spiritual message than an exquisite fragment of Venetian glass. The channels by which all noble and imaginative work in painting should touch the soul are not those of the truths of lives. -Oscar Wilde

I discovered by working with actual glass models that the important thing is the play of reflections and not the effect of light and shadow, as in ordinary buildings. -Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

When one looks at Nature through the glass walls of the Farnsworth House, it takes on a deeper significance than when one stands outside. More of Nature is thus expressed – it becomes part of a greater whole. -Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Reading an audio book is a very odd experience because there are three people sitting out there while you're reading in this glass booth, and you can see their reactions. -Ruth Reichl

I've never opened a glass of champagne on any acquisition. Bankers do that. -Ivan Glasenberg

You can find me at three in the morning in my living room with a glass of wine and really bad '90s trip hop beats blaring from my headphones. -Jenny Lewis

William Lloyd Garrison was up there with Frederick Douglass being thrown off trains and going through what happened in the 1960s in 1840 in Boston. -Rand Paul

I'm really into lip cream. I have this one by Hourglass: it's an oil with this gold-tip applicator, and it's schmancy-schmancy. When you get to the point that your lips are cracking, the price is worth it. -Anna Kendrick

My mom is big on moisturizer and water. She always reminds me to drink a lot of water and wear sunglasses because I always forget them when I go out, even though they are one of my favorite accessories. She always reminds me about wrinkles, and always did, so it's kind of been ingrained into me. -Brittany Snow

I was inspecting eyeglass lenses for a while. And I worked as a concession girl in a movie theater. And I was ironing before that. I always had some kind of a job. And then I started modeling. -Rene Russo

I'm never going to look like a Nordic model, so I play with what I've got. Instead of going gray, I dye my hair bright colors; I have bad vision, so I wear sparkly glasses. I embrace that I look like a crazy lady. -Jenji Kohan

Looking through the atmosphere is somewhat like looking through a piece of old, stained glass. The glass has defects in it, so the image is blurred from that. -Nancy Roman

The first thing I do is brush my teeth – we like to start the morning with fresh breath – and put on my pajamas and meander down to the kitchen for a glass of orange juice. No coffee. No caffeine. -Tamara Tunie

You think of 'Outlaw Josey Wales,' you immediately think of the old Indian guy, Sondra Locke, the old lady with the glasses, beautiful old actress. -Ben Mendelsohn

Illustrations can be a big window: a looking glass into the author's imagination. -Tony DiTerlizzi

My father worked in a scientific lab where he designed and built glass instruments. He was regarded as brilliant at his job and once constructed a human brain in glass just to show off his skills. -Christopher Fowler

I'm a big fan of a great glass of red wine and a delicious bowl of pasta made from scratch. -Zoe McLellan

I'm tall, fat, rather bald, red-faced, double-chinned, black-haired, have a deep voice, and wear glasses for reading. -C. S. Lewis

The Botanischer Garten in Berlin has one of Europe's finer winter trails, leading in careful order from glasshouses devoted to African-American and Australian desert species, through a fine collection of tropical plants, and on to the orchid house. -John Burnside

I make M-rated games for adults, you know, with guys wearing sunglasses at night and trench coats. -Warren Spector

Dude, I turn into a six-year-old when I come to Disneyland. It's amazing. My eyes glass over and my blood pressure goes down. I'm just like everybody else. I turn into a big kid when I come here. It's the happiest place on earth, right? -Warren Spector

Autobiography is awfully seductive; it's wonderful. Once I got into it, I realized I was following a tradition established by Frederick Douglass – the slave narrative – speaking in the first-person singular, talking about the first-person plural, always saying 'I,' meaning 'we.' -Maya Angelou

I had no portrait, now, but am small, like the wren; and my hair is bold, like the chestnut bur; and my eyes, like the sherry in the glass, that the guest leaves. -Emily Dickinson

I would wear the blue overalls of the fieldworker and often wore round, rimless glasses known as Mazzawati teaglasses. I had a car, and I wore a chauffeur's cap with my overalls. The pose of chauffeur was convenient because I could travel under the pretext of driving my master's car. -Nelson Mandela

I find that when I put too much makeup on, or I use a certain brand, my skin will break out. I tend to gravitate towards water-based foundations because my skin absorbs them a little better and it doesn't break out as much. I use Hourglass Mineral Veil. It's so amazing. -Grace Gealey

No matter where I'm going, I always have sunglasses, a book, and some gum in my carry-on. -Dylan Penn

The media are always on the lookout for possible sightings of D.B. Cooper, the man who parachuted from a plane with $200,000 in ransom money in November 1971. But the truth is, the mystery man wearing dark sunglasses almost certainly died during the jump, according to the FBI agents on the case at the time. -Ronald Kessler

My mother introduced me to more academic-minded writers, Cornel West and Skip Gates. In her library, I came across, when I was very young, Harold Cruse's 'The Crisis of the Negro Intellectual,' which is like a bible of Negro intellectuals from Frederick Douglass to Amiri Baraka. -Rashid Johnson

When the narrative itself starts knocking on the glassed-in box that was your prescription for how you were going to write this novel… you have to listen to it. -Jim Crace

We've got rings, glasses, we wear things for armor, for protection from the elements, to signal our status to other people. And we're going to co-opt a lot of those things, where wearables are going to end up being the interface between us in the world. -Astro Teller

Rather than thinking of ourselves as a computer, and trying to give you computer-like functionality, it's better to start from the understanding that this is a pair of glasses, and say, 'How smart can we make these glasses for you?' -Astro Teller

I got Elliott Smith's photography book as a gift before. The publisher of that book's logo were glasses, and those glasses came to my mind when I was thinking of having a tattoo. -Go Ah-sung

You see a virus very differently when it's caught and suspended on a slab of glass than when you're observing how it's ravaged a fellow human being. -Hanya Yanagihara

I do find the sight of small children eating very moving. Watch the way their tiny fingers clamp the cutlery. The exaggeratedly precise way they move cups or glasses to their lips. -John Niven

I am very fortunate. I am a glass-half-full eternal optimist type to the point of being a moron. But I would never presume to know how hard it goes for others. How, for some people, just getting though the day is an incredible effort that can hardly be borne. -John Niven

Fiction can either be a mirror reflecting you back to yourself or it can be a clean pane of glass looking on the outside. -Neel Mukherjee

I could probably die happy with a cheeseboard and a glass of French red wine – that's my idea of a perfect dinner. -Deirdre O'Kane

As an adult, I have often been deep in serious conversation with someone I've highly respected and seen them roll an eye as my mouth has mangled yet another magnificently conceived, clumsily articulated sentence. In my mind, the words are mellifluous as honey. In my mouth, they are shards of glass. -Kate Forsyth

As New York careens toward the modernity of the twentieth century when Gibson girls were transforming themselves into working women, Clara Driscoll enters the male field of stained glass artistry and builds a lively, multi-national, multi-class women's department within Tiffany Studios. -Susan Vreeland

For a century, everyone assumed that the iconic Tiffany lamps were conceived and designed by that American master of stained glass. Not so! It was a woman! -Susan Vreeland

I'm not really into EDM music; I really like when someone plays their instrument and stuff. But I saw Deadmau5 at a festival, and it was pretty tight, I have to admit. He's got the giant mouse head on and tubes coming out of the ceiling and giant mirror glass things. -Brittany Howard

Contacts would bother me. I'm just not that used to them. I think glasses are a great accessory. -Brittany Howard

I figured, 'Why not put goggle characteristics like peripheral protection and face fit into sunglasses?' -James Jannard

Making the leap from the best sunglasses company in the world to a world-class brand is a natural transition. -James Jannard

Anyone who wears glasses can be an Oakley consumer. -James Jannard

I come from a real working class background, and I didn't know anyone sophisticated – except I saw Edie Sedgewick once at the Art Museum in Philly. She had these black leotards and little black pumps and this big ermine cape and all these white dogs and black sunglasses and black eyes. She was classy! -Patti Smith

I had always been interested in race and racial justice, but mostly it was with my nose pressed up against the glass, looking at the South from a long way away. -Tom Brokaw

I was 16 before I met another passionate collector. One summer, I visited England; a new friend took me calling on his dotty, brilliant old aunt. She occupied a quaint house in Kent. Its walls were lined with glass-fronted cases full of what? Ancient shoe buckles. -Allan Gurganus

One of the best parts of a woman's body is that curve, and I go a little bit higher on all of my things to show off the best part of the hourglass. -Melissa McCarthy

When you do what I do, there are a lot of institutions that give you awards. I've gotten maybe 20 medals. They're glorious, and there's a spirit behind them. But sometimes they give you this dreadful modern glass thing. I wish everyone could afford a loving cup. -Michael Graves

It's not that diamonds are a girl's best friend, but it's your best friends who are your diamonds. It's your best friends who are supremely resilient, made under pressure and of astonishing value. They're everlasting; they can cut glass if they need to. -Gina Barreca

Do glassmakers not have the ability to knead their own agates, marbles and rock crystals? -Emile Galle

We have a very open culture at the company, where we foster a lot of interaction between not just me and people but between everyone else. It's an open floor plan. People have these desks where no one really has an office. I mean, I have a room where I meet with people. But it has all glass, so everyone can see into it and see what's going on. -Mark Zuckerberg

I wear sunglasses almost all the time outside – not because I think I'm really, really cool, but because of the rays. -Ronda Rousey

I don't go out. I don't go to clubs. It's not my thing. I sit at home with my glass of wine and watch hours of reality TV. I have a million shows on my TiVo. -Kaley Cuoco

I love the outdoor festival feeling. When I'm on stage, it's very gratifying to watch people on the lawns enjoying the music with a glass of wine. -Joshua Bell

I am pretty geeky, yes. I like odd sub-culture activities, I am often socially inept, I wore glasses in high school. But I am a modern geek. -Josh Zuckerman

I started to wear the sunglasses all the time at school, hiding behind them… I'd walk down the hallways, practically hugging the wall, dragging my head against it like I was crazy. -R. Kelly

On a Friday night in 1983, I was in a taxi in New York riding home from dinner with friends. A drunk driver ran a red light and hit the cab, and I was thrown toward the glass partition. I tried to duck, but my face hit the glass, and the impact fractured my cheekbone, my eye socket, my collarbone and several ribs. -Iman

I have fond memories from growing up in Switzerland and drinking a glass of warm milk with a spoonful of honey before bed. -Daniel Humm

I enjoy walking through Nolita and Chinatown, watching the people and the buildings, browsing through shops and stopping at little cafes for a cup of coffee or glass of wine. -Aslaug Magnusdottir

I'm more a 1950s hourglass shape. -Sarah Hay

History, whether sacred or profane, hides her teaching from those who study her through coloured glasses. She only reveals truth to those who look through the cold clear medium of passionless inquiry, who seek the Truth without determining first the masquerade in which alone they will receive it. -Sabine Baring-Gould

Every glass thermometer has subtle variations in the size and shape of the bulb at the bottom and the capillary tube inside, as well as variations in the width of gradations on the side. The compounded effect of these uncertainties is that each thermometer reads temperature slightly differently. -Sam Kean

I like to be home on a Friday night. I don't go out. I don't go to clubs. It's not my thing. I sit at home with my glass of wine and watch hours of reality TV. -Kaley Cuoco

I have that glass-half-empty syndrome, and it takes a great deal of effort to climb out of the hole of darkness that I choose to live in mentally. -Christian Slater

I'm a mirror glass for the Muslims as well as the Western world, which looks at me in a slightly different way, but they are looking in the same mirror. -Cat Stevens

The majority of astronauts have to change their eyeglasses while in space. They bring eyeglasses with them and typically change a few months into the mission. -Scott Kelly

I never really thought of myself as an Asian-American cartoonist, any more than I thought of myself as a cartoonist who wears glasses. -Adrian Tomine

Clearly, the Iranians are well aware that Teheran would be turned into a field of glass and sand if they ever stepped toward open war with Israel or Saudi Arabia. -Mike Barnicle

My kitchen in New York City is in the Richard Meier building on Perry Street, so it's ultra-modern: white, glass and transparent. It's 180 square feet, with an induction stove. Everything's hidden, so you don't see the microwave or the fridge. -Jean-Georges Vongerichten

In the morning, we sliced all the vegetables and layered everything up in a pot with a glass of Riesling. On the way to church, we dropped it off with the baker, who sealed the lid with a strip of dough and put it in his oven for a couple of hours. We picked it up at 12 o'clock and took it home to eat with mustard and salad. -Jean-Georges Vongerichten

Born with blue spectacles, you would think the world was blue and never be conscious of the existence of the distorting glass. -T. E. Hulme

I think the process is one of using the camera and sound in the way a detective uses a magnifying glass: to find the clues. They're discovery devices, not performance devices – you're watching things the way a cat does. You're not judging. You're there to witness something. -D. A. Pennebaker

I'm actually thinking about maybe, on a spacewalk, not wearing my glasses. I normally wear those both for reading and a little bit of a distance correction, but the distance vision seems like it's gotten a little bit better. So I might go without. -Scott Kelly

Oh Cup-bearer, set my glass afire with the light of wine! -Hafez

There's nothing better than a glass of wine, a girlfriend, and a long talk. -Karen Fairchild

I would be much less stressed out without social media. I am constantly afraid of getting hacked. It's like being afraid of stepping on glass. -Lily-Rose Depp

My late father Rev. James Thomas McGlowan was the inspiration behind 'Bamboozled.' My father admired Frederick Douglass' courage and his bravery in the face of adversity. -Angela McGlowan

When I speak to people I worked with when I was young, they constantly tell me they wish their students would work half as hard as I did. I was always one to get a lot more out of myself, seeing the glass as half-empty rather than half-full. -Milos Raonic

My mum, she has a very specific way of mixing bourgeois and hippie. She doesn't wear a lot of make-up, but she always has to wear glasses, and she has this huge collection of glasses. And no rules. -Mariacarla Boscono

On a really good day, if I'm really trying, in the morning I'll have a piece of toast, vitamins and nuts, or a bagel with a little cream cheese. Then at lunch time, I'll get me one of those Chinese chicken salads, a glass of juice, and a big glass of water. -Jo Marie Payton

I think we've broken a lot of barriers and kind of shattered our glass ceiling that was there for women. There are so many great fighters, and we've proved a lot of people wrong. A lot of the times, our fights are the best fights on the card. -Miesha Tate

People tend to associate fairies with princesses, but they couldn't be more different. Princesses have dynastic and domestic pressures, and they get parked on glass hills. Fairies don't have families. They don't clean or cook. They sip nectar from flowers and dance by the light of the moon. -Laura Amy Schlitz

Because of my grey hair and glasses, people think I'm Phil Donahue. -Jeff MacNelly

I'm hopeful that at the end of my life, someone like Frederick Douglass would look at my life and say, 'Well done: you've proven yourself to be worthy of the legacy we left you.' -Cory Booker

You can't learn to take a punch. Whether you have a glass chin or you don't, the only way of finding out is having it land. -Brin-Jonathan Butler

We never want to hear the customer say, 'You have nice sunglasses, but I can't find jeans in my size.' -Robert J. Fisher

I'm most comfortable with my computer. Yes, I have an iPhone, but I've reached that point now where to read e-mails on my phone, I need my reading glasses. I'm most comfortable with the big-screen computer. -George Takei

I knew just by reading this guy, Nathanael West, that he was probably one of those icky East Coast guys with glasses who got mad because when he came to L.A., all those starlets preferred producers or cowboys to him. -Eve Babitz

Spiders keep me awake at night. If I see one that's too big to get under a glass, there will be big problems. I'll spend the rest of the day feeling like I'm being terrorised by this missing spider. -Nicola Adams

The Palestinian conflict is the glass ceiling of Israel's economy. -Tzipi Livni

What actually happened with 'Miracle' was that someone saw me in 'Jurassic Park' and said, 'We want someone with a white beard – how about him?' I've got a round face, white hair, a white beard. I can wear half-moon glasses and waddle a little, cope with a cane, raise my hat. -Richard Attenborough

For inspiration, we still demand the rhetorical high notes. Clinton has hit them before, in her speech in Beijing as first lady when she said, 'Women's rights are human rights,' and in her 2008 concession speech, when she talked about the '18 million cracks' in the glass ceiling. -Rebecca Traister

I like bold statements. I'm very nearsighted, and I'm terrible at the whole contacts thing. I figured, 'Why not get some glasses that are fun, that contrast with my skin tone and brighten things up.' -Cecile McLorin Salvant

Don't try to squeeze into a glass slipper. Instead, shatter the glass ceiling. -Priyanka Chopra

I pretty much only drink water, Tazo passion tea, or coffee with half and half, and it's an ongoing joke in the office that I never have less than three glasses of water and some form of tea or coffee in front of me. -Ivanka Trump

The worst bar fights I ever saw were in London. I saw a guy break a pint glass in another guy's face in a club in the Eighties. It was a gay club, too. -Liev Schreiber

I'm definitely a glass-is-always-half-full, not half-empty, kind of person. Which is why I love living in America. -Victoria Beckham

I think the sexiest thing about a woman is confidence, but confidence in a humble way, not in an arrogant way. Sense of humor is definitely important. And sunglasses always hide a multitude of sins. Sunglasses and a great pair of heels can turn most outfits around. -Victoria Beckham

If you meet your heroes, you're always going to be disappointed. Frederick Douglass was a great man, but would I want my daughter to marry him? Probably not. That doesn't mean that I don't think he's a great man. -James McBride

People think that I have this wonderful hourglass figure, but I owe that to designer Tadashi Shoji because he cuts for me really well. -Octavia Spencer

We all have hourglass figures; your sand just settles in different places. -Octavia Spencer

We always think that we're going to be young forever, and now when I wake up, I need to stretch, and I need to have my glass of water and be cognizant of what I'm doing with my body. -Octavia Spencer

We tell infertile couples all the time that are having trouble conceiving because of the woman not ovulating, 'Just relax. Drink a glass of wine. And don't be so tense and uptight because all that adrenaline can cause you not to ovulate.' -Phil Gingrey

I will say this: when you take any substance, especially in baseball, it's half mental and half physical. If you take this glass of water and you say, 'I'm going to be a better baseball player,' then you probably will be. -Alex Rodriguez

One of the ways a landfill engineer anywhere in the world earns bragging rights is if he can pour himself a glass of the leachate from his landfill and drink it. -Jeanne Marie Laskas

I financed and made my own films from the start. My path has been autonomous and independent, so I don't have any horror stories about glass ceilings and expectations and tense studio meetings. -Ava DuVernay

Food plays a large part in our weekend, but on a Friday evening, I'll make us something simple for tea. I might have a wee glass of wine. -Victoria Pendleton

I'm as strong and supple as a pane of thin glass. I've got too many ailments – left shoulder, left elbow and left wrist – in fact, the whole of the left arm. -Geoff Dyer

The message I like to convey to women and girls across the globe is that there is no glass ceiling. -Venus Williams

It was the corner sweet-shop in Australia that first piqued my interest in interior design. I went into this space with a mixture of apprehension and excitement as a child. It was filled, floor to ceiling, with the most incredible rounded glass bowls filled to the brim with bonbons, buttons, and sweets. -Anouska Hempel

I think there's still this huge glass ceiling for women owning sexuality. And especially young women. If you're an old lady like me, I can do anything now. -Marilyn Minter

When I was paralysed by polio at 13, I went into an isolation hospital and couldn't sit up, so I only took liquid food from spouted cups which the masked nurses would bring in and feed to me. I saw my parents only through glass; we couldn't touch. -Mary Berry

I was born in 1935, so I was quite young when the war started. I remember we were in Bath, and it was 1942. We went down into the cellar of our house, and when we came up, I remember seeing all the glass on the floor where all the windows had been shaken out by the bombs. -Mary Berry

At my dinner parties, I like to serve cheese after the main course because you still have red wine in the glass, and it goes very well with the cheese. And that is what they do in France, and I think they set a good example. -Mary Berry

I tend to be one who just speaks from my soul, and so what comes out sometimes is rather harsh. In that sense, I'm very much a part of the tradition of a Frederick Douglass or a Malcolm X who used hyperbolic language at times to bring attention to the state of emergency. -Cornel West

New synthetic substances – steel, concrete, glass – are actively superseding the traditional raw materials of construction. -Walter Gropius

As much as the glasses, it's the Englishness and the gangliness. The apparent lack of muscularity… they indicate I'm not a macho man. -Louis Theroux

For publicity purposes, everything gets simplified, and the fact that I wear glasses and am somewhat bookish makes me a geek. That's fine; there needs to be a shorthand, but there are important geek traits that I don't really share. -Louis Theroux

We need to quit arguing about whether the glass is half full or half empty – and instead acknowledge that there's not quite enough water to go around. -Kate Brown

Australians are crazy, man! Every night, I feel like I'm in a scene from Brad Pitt's 'World War Z'… the kids are going to figure out a way to from a zombie rave ladder over the plexiglass and come into the DJ booth and eat me alive… Not in a bad way at all. -Jillionaire

Carbon is the stuff of life, and it's the stuff of everything used by human society. All of our materials are made of carbon or of substances, such as steel or glass, which are produced through the utilization of carbon. -Robert Zubrin

When you seek out – or seek to avoid – your own reflection, the modern city becomes a hall of mirrors: car windows, reflective walls, and plate glass are everywhere, transmitting a cacophony of different versions of you – this one too short, that one too wide, another one with a sickly color you've never seen before. -Alexandra Kleeman

I usually don't throw around the word 'fabulous,' but how else to describe buildings decorated with mirrored water dragons, serpents tiled in colored glass, and hundreds – no, thousands, no, tens of thousands – of gold-leaf Buddhas? Luang Prabang has more than 47,000 residents, but its Buddha population must be ten times that. -David Ebershoff

I think in the last thirty years, the rich have gotten richer and the poor have gotten poorer. It is not something that you can see with rose-colored glasses. -Mira Nair

We moved in 8th grade, so 7th grade I was doing okay, and then 8th grade, everything fell apart. I had no fashion sense to speak of. We only had a couple of hair care products back then. We didn't have all these things to tame your hair. I had glasses; I had braces. I had it all. -Lauren Graham

For a time in high school, I had glasses, braces, and a cast. I like to call this look 'no date for homecoming.' -Lauren Graham

I had this moment in church, which I think really turned me off. I was 7 or 8 years old and I was sitting at church, and we happened to be playing with the sunlight that was coming down from the stained glass window, and the monsignor came down to the pew and grabbed us by our neck collars and said, 'I'll deal with you.' -Jeff Fisher

I remember, as a kid, thinking more about, you know, watching the world go by and being amazed by how both complex but consistent and elegant it was. You know, why, you know, when you put that cold glass of water on the table, it kind of warms up at a very predictable way. -Dean Kamen

They wouldn't take me in the navy because of my glass eye. So I joined the merchant navy, who allowed monocular crew if you worked in the kitchens. You're not wanted on deck or in the engine room with one eye, but you're good to fire up the ovens and cook hundreds of chops. -Peter Falk

I lose things. I am preoccupied. I am misty. Eyeglasses? I go through eyeglasses like tissue. -Peter Falk

The glass is always half full: I have no time for anything negative – and actually, I've bought crystals for all my team, so they all carry crystals as well. -Victoria Beckham

My glasses say a lot about me because I think me in a pair of sunglasses is an image that a lot of people would recognise. -Victoria Beckham

Mothers subject their daughters to a level of scrutiny people usually reserve for themselves. A mother's gaze is like a magnifying glass held between the sun's rays and kindling. It concentrates the rays of imperfection on her daughter's yearning for approval. The result can be a conflagration – whoosh. -Deborah Tannen

I've only seen one snake out in the wilderness, not behind glass, and I froze. I literally couldn't move. So to say I have a fear of snakes would be true. -Jeff Nichols

With fame comes opportunity, but in my opinion, it also includes responsibility – to advocate and share, to focus less on glass slippers and more on pushing through glass ceilings and, if I'm lucky enough, then to inspire. -Meghan Markle

I'm really big on day dates. If you go for a stroll, have a picnic or lunch with a glass of wine – it doesn't get better than that. -Meghan Markle

On the last day of my teaching career, I was sitting in my apartment, having a glass of wine, thinking I'm glad I did it, that I had been somehow useful, that I had learned something. -Frank McCourt

I get to see life through rose-colored glasses a lot of the time. -Usher

You have people who are so passionate and touched by my work, which is so humbling. But other times, it's a little overwhelming. If I'm just trying to go to the bodega and get some coconut water, I have to put on a hat and some glasses – those kind of things. -Samira Wiley

The people in L.A. do orient themselves to light. I used to call it 'Tan Fascist Culture.' Everyone there is tanned, wears dark sunglasses, looks like a movie star even when they're not. -James Turrell

Frederick Douglass had charged the air with rebellion and redemption, and these in turn had supported him in the heat of abolitionism. But the atmosphere changed to one of repression after the Civil Rights Act of 1875. -Darryl Pinckney

One of my clearest, happiest memories is of myself at fourteen, sitting up in bed, being handed a large glass of warm buttermilk by my mother because I had a sore throat, and she saying how envious she was that I was reading 'The Catcher in the Rye' for the first time. -David Shields

I like glasses so I can go out without my makeup. Just grab your coat and get your hat and go. -Elaine Stritch

When I was a kid, I would come home from school, and my mom would buy the industrial-size Famous Amos cookies or Chips Ahoy when I was lucky. And I would sit in front of the TV set with a glass of milk… and I would dump cookies in there, smash them with my spoon, and eat cookies and milk with a spoon watching 'The Dukes of Hazzard.' -Johnny Iuzzini

I have found that every family has a strange remedy for any situation – from 'Use Fantastic to get the scuff off your patent leather shoes!' to 'Soak an aspirin in a glass of water to get rid of a migraine.' -Nia Vardalos

I got my Equity card at 24 at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis, and they asked me to join the company. I was content and happy working in the company there for a long while until I really started to feel as if I hit a bit of a glass ceiling artistically. -John Carroll Lynch

I've caught myself watching MSNBC more and more, simply amazed at the nightly hate-fest against millions of Americans who don't see the world through the granny glasses of Keith Olbermann or any of the other radical liberals who host shows there. -Mike Gallagher

No phone, a movie, a glass of wine, and some salad. Perfect! -Kate Moss

I need specifically love, affection, people to touch me all the time. Because otherwise, I don't really – I don't cope very well. On 'Morgan,' everything is shot from the other side of the glass, so I was alone in a soundproof room watching everybody but being completely separate from whatever was going on. -Anya Taylor-Joy

After a pay per view, I know there is TV the next day. But after Raw, I like to eat bad. I can have some pizza, French fries, a burger, live it up, a glass of wine – red, of course. -Sasha Banks

Why are we tiptoeing on glass? You can ask me whatever you like; people usually do, and I try to be as honest as I can. -Karan Singh Grover

I'm a collector, so I've got all kinds of sunglasses. I'd say I've got about a buck ten, buck twenty. -Guy Fieri

I saw B.B. King in concert one time where he had this guy that would bring him out a glass of water and towel to wipe his forehead with. -Johnny Van Zant

I was a Versace perfume girl at Saks Fifth Avenue, and Rihanna actually came up to the counter and asked for something. And she wouldn't even take her sunglasses off! She was so mean to me. Not mean, but, like, guarded. I don't blame her, though. -Bebe Rexha

I like to start my day with a glass of coconut water, some protein powder, and a mix of things – goji berries, flax seeds, hemp seeds, even the flesh of a coconut or anything with a lot of fibre. I often add bananas, or eggs – fried or boiled – to my breakfast. -Nargis Fakhri

I always see the glass half full. I see the beauty in others, and I see the hope for tomorrow. If we don't have hope and faith, we have nothing. -Craig Sager

I know places you better speak low if you've been to college. Men will come across the room and cold-deck you if you hold your glass wrong. -Steve Prefontaine

It wasn't cool that I didn't comb my hair and had books and wore glasses. It was never cool be a nerd and tomboy, and these days, it really is. And I'm like, 'You guys have no idea what I went through.' How many times my mother yelled at me to comb my hair. -AJ Lee

There's definitely a list of things I'd like to do. But there's been a lot of things I hadn't even thought would have been possible to do that I'd been able to do, so I think I'll surprise myself and keep breaking that glass ceiling to see what's next. Hopefully people get surprised – that's my main goal. -AJ Lee

I'm obsessed with Jo Malone oils. I think they're so beautiful; they're exquisite. But it's not just the oils; I'm obsessed with their packaging. The beautiful glass bottles that you keep on the side of the bath – they're almost iconic. -Poppy Delevingne

I would rather eat broken glass and drink iodine than do the dishes. -Kevin Canty

If you grow up in show business, you look beyond the looking glass. So, all of the surface facades get broken. -RuPaul

My hair is normally really unkempt – I'll just use my sunglasses like a headband or throw on a felt cloche by Behida Dolic in windy weather. -Morena Baccarin

I wasn't interested in football. It made me different. I wore glasses, had bad hair, a funny name, you name it. -Rupert Friend

If Wikileaks didn't resolve that question for folks – at the end of the day, there are no secrets. We're living in a glass neighborhood, in a fishbowl, and technology, white hat hackers, the folks that are doing the right thing with hacking. -Gavin Newsom

When I was in grade school, my teachers decided I was just about the dumbest thing to come through the door in a long time. Whatever the lesson, whatever the subject, I would sit and listen to them with a lost, glassy-eyed expression on my face. -W. Bruce Cameron

I'm no longer in my 20s, and I think, by default, the rose-colored glasses are off. -Sasheer Zamata

I like throwing on shorts and a plaid button up with messy hair and last night's eyeliner and sunglasses and wandering the town. And if there's a guy I dig with his arm around me, too, that's pretty nice. -Jessica Parker Kennedy

I get naturally uncomfortable when I'm put under a magnifying glass. -The Weeknd

We brick-and-mortar ourselves away from nature. The outside world is behind glass, underneath a slab of concrete, running through PVC. Our steel and concrete are suitable enough until nature comes knocking. And when she wants to get in, nothing can stop her. -Kyle Hill

None of us have pure thoughts; we all live in glass houses. -Mark Cuban

Normally, improving contrast sensitivity means using glasses or surgery to correct the eye. But we've found that action video games train the brain to process visual information more efficiently and improve vision. -Daphne Bavelier

I got, like, 120 pairs of glasses and 800 pairs of sneakers. -Von Miller

The crazy thing is I got all of these shoes, and probably 80 percent of them I've never worn before. I've worn all the glasses. I sleep in them, bend them up a little bit. Glasses are on all the time except when I'm at practice or at work. -Von Miller

Like steampunk, silkpunk is a blend of science fiction and fantasy. But while steampunk takes its inspiration from the chrome-brass-glass technology aesthetic of the Victorian era, silkpunk draws inspiration from East Asian antiquity. -Ken Liu

The one piece of advice I would give to all girlfriends – or guy friends, too, I guess – is that if you're going to have a fight in a Baja Fresh parking lot, make sure one of you has an available pair of sunglasses because whoever is crying is going to want to wear them. -Jessica St. Clair

People have always painted me like a pessimist, like somebody who sees the glass half-empty. But I think the fact that I keep showing up and saying, 'No, there must be a way for me to live in this world,' that shows I'm an eternal optimist. -John Grant

I think sometimes when you want attention, you can wear sunglasses, and people are like, 'Who is that?' -Kat Graham

I have the most dreadfully appalling eyesight. I'm really shortsighted and have been since I was about five. I was the speccy girl with the pink National Health glasses. That's my physical vulnerability, and I wish I could put it right, but I can't – even with surgery. -Sarah Alexander

If the day's writing has been particularly good or particularly bad, a glass of scotch will be involved. -Stephen J. Dubner

Fibers made on Earth, and thus made in the presence of gravity, have impurities and defects in the glass that adversely affect transmission speed and quality. -Dylan Taylor

My maternal grandmother, Annie Sparks, lived with our family during the while I was growing up. When I came home from school, after having made a detour to the kitchen to pour a glass of milk and fix a thick peanut butter sandwich on easy-to-tear white bread, I would go up to her sitting room. -Sue Hubbell

My unpredictability is what separates me. If you move in so many ways, your opponent is not focused on what he's doing. He's focusing in on what you're doing, and it freezes him. When they freeze and you hit, they shatter like glass. -Conor McGregor

Comic books and radio were my escape. I even remember 3-D comic books where you put on the red-and-green glasses and Mighty Mouse would punch you in the face. It was the literature of the day for kids my age who were too bored with listening to 'Peter and the Wolf' on the record player. -George A. Romero

There are real consequences when women speak out. It's really dangerous, and it takes real courage. We are still speaking out against a white male majority. Forget the glass ceiling. We haven't even broken the glass floor! -Alexandra Fuller

I'm an entrepreneur, so I've got to be ruthless about 'me' time if I want to have any left to myself! I make myself leave the office by 8 or 9 P.M. most nights, even if I do curl up with my laptop and a glass of wine at home to get through email. -Kathryn Minshew

I thought of calorie-counting as a budget: I was happy to skip bread at dinner so I could 'spend' on a glass of wine. -Heidi Roizen

When I feel my blood sugar getting off, I drink a glass of kale juice. It's so disgusting you don't want to eat anything! -Naomi Klein

The thought that you ought not to drink while pregnant came much, much later. In fact, I had my first child in 1982, and I was still told by nurses and so forth, 'Have a glass of wine with dinner. It'll help you relax.' -Diana Gabaldon

When I visited Moscow for the first time in 1998, I wandered into the historic Metropol Hotel as a curious tourist simply to ogle the giant painted glass ceiling that hangs over the grand restaurant off the lobby. It was the memory of that short visit that prompted me, some years later, to set 'A Gentleman in Moscow' in the hotel. -Amor Towles

People get out ahead of themselves in debt with spending on all of their desires. But if you learn to live pretty simply and well, well under your means, you feel incredibly, incredibly rich, and that frees you up and gives you the option to start something new, to leave the job you're not excited about, where there might be a glass ceiling on you. -Chris Sacca

I really do not like having media moderators. Lincoln and Douglass didn't have moderators. Let the candidates ask one another questions. -Ann Coulter

School is not a great place to have feminine features or a big nose, or to wear glasses or the wrong shoes. -Boy George

I was a young actor who was bald, but at that time, there was a thing on television that – there was a prototype or a stereotype of a principal who was bald and mean with glasses, or there was… the angry boss who was bald. -Jeffrey Tambor

You see kids walking to the bus, and they're watching product on their phones. I'm positive that my grandkids and their grandkids are going to put on a pair of glasses and watch something. -Jeffrey Tambor

I grew up hearing, 'You're pretty for a black girl,' 'You speak well for a black girl…' I was really bookish. I was reading all of the time. I had big glasses. -Jessica Williams

You're basically like glass: People see the candidates through you. -John Dickerson

Americans always see China through the looking glass, and I think it's about time – with technology and of the growing economic relationship between these two countries – I think it's natural and better for all of us to have a better understanding of each other. -Wong Kar-wai

At film festivals, I put on my sunglasses and go to sleep because I don't want to see my films again. -Wong Kar-wai

When that glass broke and 'Stone Cold' was making an entrance, and that roof blew off that building, that sends you higher than life or anything that I know of. It's an adrenaline rush you can't explain. -Stone Cold Steve Austin

I've done so many commencement speeches at colleges and law schools, and I tell young women that there are no glass ceilings because those were broken by a lot of women who came before us. You can be anyone you want to be. You can do anything you want to do. -Pam Bondi

You'll see in 'Carol' a lot of shots shot through windows, glass and awnings, with interruptions between where we are and where our object is. To me, I hope that that conjures the whole act of looking as a predicament, as something that is never easy and never completely attainable. -Todd Haynes

There is a glass ceiling for everybody until you find a way to get that connection that Cena has. -Dolph Ziggler

My mother wears glasses, and so do some of my friends. When they get new ones, the old glasses go in a drawer. -Erik Per Sullivan

I catch myself every once in a while doing that weird thing that I see famous people do, where they have sunglasses and hats on and grow out beards thinking that they're fooling people. Dude, you're not fooling anyone: you look just like you. -Sterling K. Brown

Who indeed, after pulling off the coloured glasses of prejudice and thrusting out of sight his pet projects, can help seeing the folly of these endeavours to protect men against themselves? A sad population of imbeciles would our schemers fill the world with, could their plans last. -Herbert Spencer

I do remember once going to Salzburg in Austria. Liverpool were playing a European game there, and they put me in a box behind glass. I hate being behind glass; I always want to feel part of the action. -John Motson

Sometimes people start with you. Especially in local places – 'Hey, go get your shine box.' So I go out earlier. I wear sunglasses and a cap… That's the downside of being successful. -Frank Vincent

I was skinny. I wore thick glasses. I had acne. -John Hickenlooper

When I need to decompress, I grab a glass of wine, some popcorn, and a great book. -Shira Goodman

I'm from a generation of women that shattered the glass ceiling. We didn't wait for doors to open. The lesson I learned is that you need to open some doors for yourself in pursuit of career advancement. -Denise Morrison

I feel strongly about the need for diversity, and with good reason. I'm from a generation of women that found it exhilarating to shatter the glass ceiling. We viewed obstacles as opportunities and earned our seat at the leadership table. -Denise Morrison

I have long been of the mindset that aviators are like leather jackets – when they're perfect, they give you 'instant cool.' They're the Alexa Chung of sunglasses. -Emily Weiss

A lot of people say, 'It takes a lot to beat him,' or whatever. I'm trying to show you in the most literal terms, my body is indestructible, whether its glass or fire or barbed wire. -Dean Ambrose

People do recognize me. I walk around with sunglasses, and I think I'm hidden, but they see me. -Natalia Dyer

Keep it simple. I usually have my hair up in a ballet bun and a great pair of sunglasses for when I'm on the go. On vacation, all you need is a sexy dress and great perfume, paired with a gorgeous red lip. -Lily Aldridge

I feel like kids are getting more and more used to communicating through a glass screen than they are face-to-face, and that worries me a little. -Mark Foster

We are very far from our potential, but you aren't going to see 500 stores; that wouldn't be consistent with the exclusivity of our brand. You also aren't going to see a Loro Piana perfume, glasses, or watches, because we are concentrating on our core business. -Pier Luigi Loro Piana

Many entrepreneurs embrace profit-making and charitable purposes. Companies such as shoes seller Toms and eyeglass firm Warby Parker sell products at a profit with a pledge to devote part of their earnings to the needy. The number of for-profit businesses with a built-in charitable dimension has proliferated. -Josh Hawley

Never wear a hat and sunglasses at the same time, because it looks like you're wearing a disguise. -Jamie Hince

Being on 'American Idol,' the blessings of glasses have rained from the sky. I really would like to start a Danny line or a Gokey line of eyeglasses. -Danny Gokey

I've always loved glasses. Always have. I've worn glasses since I was in the fifth grade. -Danny Gokey

I have a Baldwin in my L.A. apartment, a Steinway in my New York apartment, and a Kawai plexiglass grand piano in storage for shows. I still play for two or three hours every day. -Neil Sedaka

I collect hotel keys. I hope to make something out of them someday. It would be cool to make a bar at my house and, like, the bar is all the hotel keys: lay them down and put glass over them. Or maybe even a coffee table. -Frankie Ballard

I think, before Obama, there was a glass ceiling. That's a big change. As a president, I think he was the best. I felt like I could trust his judgment, and he'd take a measured, empathetic approach. I don't see there ever being another Barack Obama. -Jordan Peele

I was a technology reporter. And I think everybody who covers tech at some point or another feels like a little kid with their face pressed against the glass looking in at the candy shop and going, 'Wow, it looks so cool and so much fun.' -Daniel Lyons

HubSpot's offices occupy several floors of a 19th-century furniture factory that has been transformed into the cliche of what the home of a tech startup should look like: exposed beams, frosted glass, a big atrium, modern art hanging in the lobby. -Daniel Lyons

What sticks in my mind from seeing the Teletubbies is Tinky Winky's handbag and Tubby Custard. I always remember wanting to have a glass of Tubby Custard and some Tubby Toast in the morning. -Daniel Rigby

One of my ongoing projects is to expand third-eye technology whereby two people can watch two different things on a screen or type in two different languages on the same surface – all they have to do is wear a pair of hi-tech glass spectacles. -Pranav Mistry

For true augmented reality, the display would have to dynamically focus, which would require additional hardware on the glasses to read your eye. -Pranav Mistry

The tech rehearsal for Brits is so different. They have little glasses of wine and walk around saying, 'Lovely, darling, lovely.' -Gavin Creel

My dad was a mechanic, and I have great style memories of him. He wore, every single day: a blue chambray shirt, Levi's 501s, and Red Wing boots. And that certainly wasn't fashionable at the time; it was basically the opposite. And he wore these horn rim glasses that were very Sol Moscot. -Nick Wooster

I'm not conscious of being a revolutionary. This is my life, looking through my glasses at my little world, but this world seems to be full of people who understand it. -Alessandro Michele

I have a glass of hot water with honey and lime in it right after I wake up. I eat in small quantities every two hours and make it a point not to eat anything after 8 P.M. in the evening. -Krystle D'Souza

I don't stuff myself at breakfast and prefer to have a glass of milk and fruit for breakfast. I prefer a home-made vegetarian lunch otherwise. -Karishma Tanna

Being able to wear contacts, you don't have to worry about your glasses falling off or how you look during your beam routine. As soon as they're in, literally two minutes later, you forget that they're on. -Laurie Hernandez

I wanted to re-examine stories people think they know without the rose-colored glasses of Hollywood and let the audience decide for themselves if people like Wyatt Earp were sinners or victims of life circumstances. -Travis Fimmel

I batted with contact lenses in the IPL while playing for Delhi Daredevils. I wasn't picking the ball early. So I went back to the glasses. -Virender Sehwag

I like men with honest, frank eyes. And that's the reason I cannot talk anyone who has their sunglasses on. -Anushka Shetty

I have a glass of alkaline water first thing. I don't have the biggest appetite in the morning, which is kind of tough for me, but I always start with a green drink called Tonic Alchemy. It's a really amazing combination drink that has a lot of different superfoods and algae and Chinese herbs. -Jamie Anderson

I lead a very regimented life. I take excruciating care of myself: I take a lot of vitamins, get enough sleep, don't drink apart from a glass of wine occasionally. -Angela Lansbury

I worked from 8 A.M. to 12 A.M., and sometimes until 2 A.M. There were no shifts, just a few dozen people, and we all polished glass. I didn't enjoy it. -Zhou Qunfei

When you break glass ceilings, you're going to get minor scrapes by a shard or two from the glass. -Valerie Jarrett

What I do think is important is this idea of a 'privacy native' where you grow up in a world where the values of privacy are very different. So it's not that I'm against privacy but that the values around privacy are very different for me and for people who are younger than my parent's generation, for whom it's weird to live in a glass house. -Harper Reed

It was the Cosby family on the cover, but overlaid on that, it appeared to be a shattered glass. So it really wasn't just about the shattering of the Huxtables: it was really a shattering of the black family. And it was a question about that and where do we stand on that. -Linda Johnson Rice

People even describe the way I speak as sounding like gurgling with broken glass. Some people can't stand me; they hate my voice. -Richard Quest

My living room has an oak-wood floor, Persian carpets, floor-to-ceiling bookcases, a large ficus and large fern, a fireplace with a group of photographs and drawings over it, a glass-top coffee table with a bowl of dried pomegranates on it, and sofas and chairs covered in off-white linen. -Janet Malcolm

I was small growing up, and to make matters worse, I wore glasses, and my mother dressed me in attention-getting outfits. I was a target of bullies. -Joel Grey

I love my hourglass figure. -Ashley Graham

I love listening to audiobooks – I always lose my glasses, but if I have an audiobook, I don't need them. -Michaela Coel

'Research,' for me, is a big word that encompasses a lot of different activities, all of them based around curiosity. Research is traveling to places, or studying snowflakes with a magnifying glass, or excavating one's memories. Research is walking around Hamburg with a notebook. -Anthony Doerr

It is such a joy to join a legacy of amazing female playwrights who have managed to break through the glass ceiling and reinvigorate the Broadway stage by bringing a fresh and necessary perspective. -Lynn Nottage

There are places you go, and they say, 'Take off your dark glasses so we can see your beautiful blue eyes.' And you just want to… you just want to… I dunno, um… thump them. -Paul Newman

No longer is a geek identifiable by a pale complexion, black-rimmed glasses, a bowling shirt that says 'Nerd World Order.' No, geeks are everywhere. And they're cool! -Faith Salie

Drink a lot of water, wear big sunglasses, and don't wear make-up on the flight. -Doutzen Kroes

Most of the time, I wear plain clothes or very simple, basic ones, and then I'll have a statement earring or sunglasses. -Jessica Jung

I went from fashion to glass in 1995, and I'm very interested in architecture. -John Rocha

It was somewhere in Ohio – Cedar Point or something like that – one of those thrill rides. A few cars up, someone's sunglasses had fallen off, and we were on one of those corkscrew parts, and I saw sunglasses and just instinctively grabbed them right out of the air. I was like, 'Oh, my reaction time is really good. This is going well.' -Hilary Knight

Abolition seemed a fantasy when Frederick Douglass called for all slaves to be released. -Clint Smith

In the future, an artist will be able to perform for the entire world in one date. For the fan, it will be a fully immersive experience – through a pair of glasses or whatever the device. -Troy Carter

Perhaps the best thing about biographies is that they enable us to slip the strictures of time and provide a bracing corrective to our tendency to see everything in the dark glass of our own era, with all its blind spots, motes, beams, and distortions. -Eric Metaxas

I like to describe my characters as though they were all trapped in a glass box. -Leila Slimani

There was every reason to honestly say that 3D was a gimmick. And it's largely true. And it's largely pretty bad. When you put a filter in front of the projector, and you put on your glasses and cut the light in half again, the movies are dim as hell, and they give you headaches and eye strain, and it's terrible. -Douglas Trumbull

I'm fearless when it comes to engineering and motors and gears and pulleys and glass and artwork. -Douglas Trumbull

Many girls aspire to a version of selfhood that puts a psychological glass ceiling on their potential to succeed. They suffer from what I call the Curse of the Good Girl: the pressure to be liked by everyone, generous to a fault, and flawless at everything you do. -Rachel Simmons

I remember doing a commercial one time where I stepped on a shard of glass, and I was hobbling around in swimwear. It was raining and in the commercial, when I saw it, I didn't look like I had a messed up foot. -Iskra Lawrence

My dream date would be a hike through the woods followed by an outdoor picnic followed by a glass of wine at sunset. Heaven! -Nina Agdal

I'm very much a glass-is-half-full guy. -Jimmi Simpson

I love being able to tell a story visually. It's something I love about making commercials, where you put a magnifying glass over the mundane and make it feel extraordinary. -Dan Trachtenberg

I believe that women would crawl across broken glass to get a cool pair of shoes. -Peter Marino

I don't think a young person ever really quite knows what's going on when their norm becomes going to the grocery store with sunglasses on at 11 years old. It's kind of weird, and I'll say it also went to my head the first little season, because that became normal for me. -Alyson Stoner

I worked with Jack Nitzsche for 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest,' and we'd booked a symphony orchestra. He dismissed them and came with a little man who poured water into glasses of different sizes to make a glass harmonica. And most of the music for the film was that – with some Indian flutes and some drums. -Milos Forman

When I go out, I kind of put a hat on and glasses, so I'm kind of just like a photographer going around taking pictures, and people hopefully don't recognize me. But sometimes they do, and then I'll do a photo for them, too. -Brooklyn Beckham

Innovation usually arises from somebody taking a product already in production and making it better: better glass, better aluminum, a better chip. Innovation always starts with a product. -Vaclav Smil

I think it's just that the fashion industry can only accept one thing at a time. It's like, 'OK, well, if we're going to add plus, then let's keep it hourglass and white.' -Philomena Kwao

You can't say you're inclusive when you only have one plus-size, hourglass white model. -Philomena Kwao

To be candid, I think, in retrospect, it was a mistake to work at AOL when I did. I think I had rose-colored glasses about the opportunity to reinvent AOL. -Brad Garlinghouse

I'm like a little Pollyanna. I look at the world with rose-colored glasses. -Sutton Foster

There are times where I'm just open to receive songs. I sit down, and a jam will just come out, all at once. It's like, 'Song. Done.' I can't really explain it. This isn't the best way of putting it, but sometimes I feel like I'm a magnifying glass for vibes. -Benji Hughes

Could we design an all-glass building with internal channels and networks for airflow and water circulation? Can we surpass the great modern tradition of discrete formal and functional partitions and generate an all-in-one building skin? -Neri Oxman

Because glass is at once structural and transparent, it is relatively easy to consider the integration of structural and environmental building performance within a single integrated skin. -Neri Oxman

In the United States alone, 450 billion square feet of glass facade is produced every year. What if we could take this chance to use the glass to harness solar energy and allow the architecture to respond to the light and heat of the sun, to create photosynthesis and generate solar energy? -Neri Oxman

Unlike a pressed or blown-glass part, which traditionally has smooth internal surface features, a printed part can have complex surface features on the inside as well as the outside. -Neri Oxman

I've broken through many walls and glass ceilings. -Bozoma Saint John

U.S. is a merit-based society… There is no glass ceiling if you have good performance track record and leadership skills. -Dinesh Paliwal

My family always ate dinner at the table, and we would chat about our day while eating. My parents like to have a few glasses of wine and linger after the meal is over, peeling oranges for dessert while talking. It's lovely. -Lisa Hanawalt

I never perceived being adopted as the glass being half-empty. -Kim Hawthorne

It's a black Southern belief that blue glass keeps out bad spirits. -Kevin Young

The problem of poor vision has gone unnoticed for too long – it's astounding that 700 years after glasses were first invented, there are still 2.5 billion people across the world without access to something as simple as eye screening or a pair of glasses. -Mark Walport

If you're going to be hosting any event or a performance or having dinner with people after a performance, it is work, but it's also social: food and a glass of wine would be involved often. -John Tiffany

Even though I wear glasses, I'm not just a mousy person who stays in my room – even though I do sometimes stay in my room and read. -Marley Dias

Fashion is very important to me. I dress androgynously – I absolutely despise dresses and skirts and tights – and I started wearing glasses in the third grade. -Marley Dias

There is a glass ceiling for the Indian startups. If I want to meet the PM, it won't be as easy as a foreign guy coming to India. I understand that dynamic, and we need to make sure government sees us as major contributors to society, which is not full there. -Bhavish Aggarwal

Stained glass is unique from the outside, but as a painting insider, I know that oil painting's all about light. And it's about the depiction of light, the way that it bounces off different types of skin, different landscapes. The mastery of that light is the obsession of most of my painter friends. -Kehinde Wiley

People claim to be progressive by celebrating curvy bodies – but the standards for those hourglass shapes are equally rigid. They mask that with body positivity – but what about unconventionally attractive bodies? -Barbie Ferreira

I like sunglasses, the bigger the better, but I lose about a pair a week. -Paul Wesley

The contention is if you don't do it in the first quarter, if you don't box out and control the glass in the first quarter, you are not going to do it in the fourth quarter and overtime. -Anne Donovan

I always try to manipulate the eye when I'm dressing myself or someone else. I don't have an hourglass figure, so I'm always trying to give the illusion that I have one; bringing the eye to the waistline by adding a belt or having a heavier print at the bottom or at the top helps define your shape. -Ashley Nell Tipton

Shot glasses make me think of youth and a mode of drinking and living that was never mine, even when I was the age for it. -Rumaan Alam

I will be a president that can share a glass of soju with the public after work. -Moon Jae-in

I've always had way too many pairs of sunglasses. It's been my accessory of choice. I keep the same jewelry, mostly the same kind of style, but my sunglasses always change. -Madelaine Petsch

I have been obsessed with sunglasses for a very, very long time, so it was a natural fit for me to partner with Prive Revaux on my own collection. -Madelaine Petsch

I've been obsessed with sunglasses since the beginning of time. -Madelaine Petsch

I'm a sunglasses aficionado if I do say so myself. -Madelaine Petsch

Sunglasses were my accessory of choice, and I always had an abundance of pairs. -Madelaine Petsch

I'm afraid of open bodies of water. I was in a glass-bottomed boat that broke a long time ago, so I've always been kind of freaked out. -Madelaine Petsch

I've always been somebody who would put together an outfit, and my go-to accessory would be a pair of sunglasses. -Madelaine Petsch

I kick off my metabolism with a glass of O.J. and a pretty big smoothie. I put in chia seeds, flax seeds, raw organic honey, fresh spinach, hemp seeds, avocado, matcha, spirulina, raw almond butter, almond milk, berries, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds. -Andreja Pejic

I like being photographed without glasses. I don't want to be pretentious. -Fantastic Negrito

I'm such a fan of the glass being half full. -Katy Mixon

I will get in my car and get a chocolate souffle at midnight, and a glass of wine, and remind myself that most of my troubles are just in my mind. -Jaleel White

People take toasting way too seriously – especially the clinking glasses part. There are always a few people who are seated too far away from each other to easily clink. -Matt Besser

Sunglasses are a migraine sufferer's best friend. -Cindy McCain

We have been very focused on eyeglasses in particular because it's a massive industry. -Neil Blumenthal

We've built a company that distributes a pair of eyeglasses to someone in need for every pair sold; that purchases carbon offsets; and that hosts mentoring programs at the office. -Neil Blumenthal

I believe that the concept of 'design' encompasses every aspect of customers's exposure to a brand, from the moment they hear about us to the first time they visit our store to the process of ordering and anticipating the arrival of their glasses. -Neil Blumenthal

What happens when kids don't have glasses – they get bored in class. They disengage and they may be disruptive. They may be misdiagnosed for A.D.D. or put in special needs classes. -Neil Blumenthal

If you think about what are glasses, they are the best example of form and function. -Neil Blumenthal

The rules of optical dispensing vary from state to state. Dispensing eyeglasses is not that complicated, and even if it were complicated, there should be uniform rules. -Neil Blumenthal

It never gets old watching someone receive their first pair of glasses and regain their vision and their life. -Neil Blumenthal

I previously worked as the director of VisionSpring, a non-profit dedicated to distributing glasses to people in need. -Neil Blumenthal

Exploring emerging technologies like new refraction technology will enable people to get prescriptions cheaper and more conveniently, which will, in turn, provide increased access to prescription glasses. -Neil Blumenthal

Emotion-enabled wearable glasses can help individuals who are visually impaired read the faces of others, and it can help individuals on the autism spectrum interpret emotion, something that they really struggle with. -Rana el Kaliouby

Gandhi said it; Frederick Douglass said it. A lot of people have probably said 'It's not Christ that I have a problem with, it's his people.' And that was my struggle: it's God's people. I felt disenfranchisement. I felt so much abuse from organized religion because I'm walking in a direction that a lot of them couldn't fathom and can't understand. -Lecrae

As for me, I was a lonely kid, with few close friends until I was an adult – even when I might have been perceived as being on the inside, I felt like I was on the outside, kind of like viewing the world through a sheet of glass. -Laura van den Berg

Even if we're just watching HGTV with a glass of wine, that's date night at my house. -Ayesha Curry

The precise effects of lensing depend on the mass of the lens, the structure of space-time, and the relative distance between us, the lens, and the distant object behind it.

I think glass has so many different forms. Sometimes it comes off as something so breakable and fragile, but it's amazingly strong. It starts as sand, and it takes on different lives, but it is breakable. -Goapele

One of the big things, especially if you're eating out frequently, is either splitting an entree with someone or ordering a protein-heavy appetizer for an entree, like a salmon or steak tartar. If I'm dying for a burger, I'll get the burger but have it with salad instead of fries and a glass of red wine instead of a beer. -Mary Helen Bowers

I drink a glass of water and half a lemon as soon as I wake up. I heard that it's supposed to balance your body's pH. Not sure if that's true, but to be honest, it really helps with bloating. -Sonoya Mizuno

I knew I needed to make a studio film – not for any financial reason, but because, as a filmmaker, and especially as a female filmmaker, you have to break through the glass ceiling. -Lexi Alexander

I was selling stuff probably since I could remember, like 6 or 7 years old. I was always out there helping my mom and dad sell watches, glasses, CDs, DVDs, stuff like that.

For me, a very chilled out day would be me on my couch or cooking, sitting with one or two friends watching TV or films over a glass of wine. -Ileana D'Cruz

My mum is a rock star, and I idolise her. She was born in a conservative Muslim family, where the girls were not educated much, and she was required to wear a burkha. She felt repressed but dreamt of driving her own car, walking around in jeans and wearing sunglasses, and she did. -Ileana D'Cruz

Arn Anderson – I loved 'The Enforcer' Arn. He cut the best promos. He always looked cool because he had that Polo with the rope chain, the rose-colored glasses, and that mean beard. -Big Show

Living in Florida, I keep the sun out of my face as much as possible with a nice sun hat, sunglasses, and a sundress I can wear for all occasions. -Linda Cardellini

I have sunglasses; that is very important when you're out traveling. -Sigrid

I don't know about England so much, but in Germany and some of these other countries, the pink was something that they liked. For those kids, the pink and black and the whole look with the sunglasses and the leather jacket was the right kind of hero they could get behind, and I think that really set me apart from everyone else. -Bret Hart

I've got a beautiful kitchen, which looks like a '60s version of space, with silver chrome, orange glass work surfaces, and brown leather, and it's entirely visual and has little function. I've hardly got any knives, and there's only one wooden spoon and one saucepan. But I think I've got a cheese grater, so that's good. -Noel Fielding

I've been asked about the glass ceiling a lot, and I don't think of myself as some kind of crusader going around smashing glass. I don't feel like I had to – and that is a very, very strong flag showing the people around me made it, so I didn't have to. -Jennifer Yuh Nelson

I have a big chin. Thick glasses. -Eddie the Eagle

When I want to make someone laugh in real life (as opposed to when I'm on stage where I tell one-liners), I tend to do prop comedy.

When it's the funeral scene of 'My Girl,' and Thomas is in the casket, and the young lady is screaming that he can't see without his glasses, you can absolutely, absolutely cry. Perfectly big, crazy tears all over your shirt, into the arms of others. -Charlamagne tha God

There are no barriers, and there is no glass ceiling when you put in the work. -Booker T

I have no problems with my eyes. It was because when I became big, I suddenly I found myself playing on stage with 200,000 people, and that is scary. I remember my manager told me just put on a pair of sunglasses, and that should mitigate the panic. So I tried it, and it worked. -DJ Snake

I've always been a glass-half-empty sort of person. -Jane Fallon

If I wear a hat and sunglasses, not as many people recognize me. -Emma Gonzalez
