So, it is not that tough to make that swap and change. -Henry Cavill

Many churches are measuring the wrong things. We measure things like attendance and giving, but we should be looking at more fundamental things like anger, contempt, honesty, and the degree to which people are under the thumb of their lusts.

I think the most important thing for me in a relationship is honesty. -Zac Efron

To me, Ann Romney sounds like a better candidate than her husband. She put her MS into remission through horseback riding, alternative therapies, and a healthy diet. She knows how to pace herself.

My career is based on openness and honesty. -Kim Kardashian
