If you take a guy like a Barack Obama, who's raised millions of dollars from the most donors in the history of this nation, it suggests that there's a deep and profound hunger for a new politics to come forth. And a guy like him has been able to mobilize that and to reach certain parts of the hip-hop generation. -Michael Eric Dyson

If you hunger for certain types of clothes, for which you have little use, put yourself on a diet.

When you're providing emergency aid, you're fighting hunger; you're filling stomachs. -Ertharin Cousin

The majority of small-holder farmers in Africa are women and, in urban areas, you're primarily looking at women-led households.

I find hunger more interesting than accomplishment. -Simon Van Booy

Digital intimacy ruins the appetite for the real thing. So, when kids are gaming or even when spouses are gaming, they lose their appetite for genuine intimacy.

In 1965, I went to what was called the worst Bihar famine in India, and I saw starvation, death, people dying of hunger, for the first time. It changed my life. I came back home, told my mother, 'I'd like to live and work in a village.' Mother went into a coma. -Bunker Roy

'In Praise of Slowness' chronicles the global trend towards deceleration that has come to be known as the Slow Movement. Don't worry, though: it is not a Luddite rant. I love speed. Going fast can be fun, liberating and productive. The problem is that our hunger for speed, for cramming more and more into less and less time, has gone too far. -Carl Honore

I believe that hunger for a 'lost dimension' of experience is a natural yearning in all of us, and it doesn't go away just because we ignore it. It is evidenced among other places in the millions of children and adults who obsessively read the 'Harry Potter' books. It is said that fiction is where someone gets to tell the truth. -Marianne Williamson

There's always a hunger, when you're young, to go from peak to peak and avoid the valleys. -Peter O'Toole

If being a werewolf is really a curse, you've got to treat it honorably. If werewolves are going to carry on, there has to be an incredibly powerful force.

'Borderlands' came out of nowhere to appease the gnawing hunger left behind with the dearth of quality dungeon crawlers on the market. -Rob Manuel

I think the reason teenage fiction is so popular with adults is that adults hunger for narrative just as badly as teenagers do. -Patrick Ness

How can you satisfy your hunger while your neighbor is spending the night hungry? -Sulaiman Abdul Aziz Al Rajhi

I have been in 'Star Wars' since I was 20. And they're not just doing some goofy sequel, like, to service the hunger of it.

It's hard to do, given the appetite and the angles from which everybody's coming at it. -Carrie Fisher

When we sit at the table, there is more going on than satisfying hunger. It is sad to think of those who eat simply to satisfy their hunger and who do not permit themselves to linger under the many spells offered by a good meal – the satisfaction of our hearts, our minds and our spirits. -Leo Buscaglia

What crime writers are doing connects deeper into a cultural hunger. Crime is important. When you open up a book that has a body that's dead, that matters. It matters more than a certain level of suburban angst; it really does. -S. J. Rozan

After the Olympics and being on such a high and then losing in the World Championships, I was distraught. But now, looking back on it, I think it was the biggest blessing.

The hunger has come back now because I want to be a double Olympic champion. I want to be a legend. -Jade Jones

When our economy is truly healthy, and everyone rises with the tide of prosperity, then issues such as the lack of affordable housing, homelessness, and hunger are greatly diminished. -David Ige

If I don't have the drive and determination to wake up every day and train with young, hungry fighters, if I don't want to do that, then I need to get out of the game, but as long as my body says I'm all right, and my hunger stays the same, I'm going to keep going. -Robbie Lawler

The most successful achievers in sports are people that are really driven and have that spirit of hunger. -Rei Kawakubo

There's always been a hunger in me not necessarily to be successful, but to be an icon. -Sam Smith
