My family was Jehovah's Witnesses, which is a really tough religion. It kind of deterred me from religion for a long time. They still practice, but I don't. But I always remained spiritual, and had a belief that there is a God. I'm trying to find my way, you know? -Ja Rule

As we have sought through the centuries to define ourselves as human beings and as nations through the prisms of history and literature, no small part of that effort has drawn us to the subject of war.

People have been listening to Burning Spear for a long time now, and they know who I am and what I stand for. Yes, I do address many of the same ideas from album to album, adding only a little different flavor or coloring. Yes, the message has remained virtually the same because the issues haven't gone away yet. -Burning Spear

When I first read Anne Frank's 'Diary of a Young Girl,' I saw for the first time that a girl could be a writer and that it had something to do with survival and with ethics and fighting against evil. I admired her, though her diary remained terrifying and mysterious to me. She was a character in a real fairy tale – fairy tales are brutal. -Kate Bernheimer

My stepmother appeared when I was about 9. My brother was sent off to an institute in Scotland & my sister & I were sent to school. As my stepmother's ideas were then wholly Quaker, mixed with a naive & charming innocence & a little snobbery, it was one dotty epoch on top of another. I always remained terrified of my father. -Louis MacNeice

Although the Nasser revolution of 1952 was secular, the culture remained deeply religious – but it was a faith of moderation and tolerance. Women made up nearly half my class at university, and my senior academic adviser there was a woman. In Alexandria, my friends were Christians and Muslims. -Ahmed Zewail

People only watch my shows for me, and those shows have remained evergreen long after the guests are forgotten. -Barry Humphries

As late as 2007, Facebook was still trying to figure out what it wanted to be when it grew up. An advertising space seemed to be the obvious answer, but how that would tap into the massive value of the personal data uploaded to the company every day remained a puzzle. -Kurt Eichenwald

I returned to Vietnam in '94, and even then, all those decades later, walking around that place, I remained afraid. And, in some ways, rightly so. -Tim O'Brien

Emily Dickinson never developed. She remained loyal to her persona and to that same little metrical song that stood her in such good stead. She is a striking example of complexity within a simple package. Her rhymes are like bows on the package. -Billy Collins

I don't think I would have written a combat novel if I had just had peacetime military training. I think, in fact, I probably would have remained a poet and just written a short story every now and then. -Joe Haldeman

Of course the 19th century remained in blissful ignorance of post-modern irony, and the dime novels were made without end. -Clive Sinclair

I came to the destruction of volume by the use of the plane. This I accomplished by means of lines cutting the planes. But still, the plane remained too intact. So I came to making only lines and brought the colour within the lines. Now the only problem was to destroy these lines also through mutual oppositions. -Piet Mondrian

Politics remained archaically unchanged in 1999. America was economically strong but morally complacent. It was a year of evil in many ways – another great year for cartooning. -Michael Ramirez

Like John Major in her wake, Thatcher was convinced that she understood the Scots – yet couldn't understand why we remained so stubbornly resistant towards the notion of understanding her. -Charles Kennedy

Sir Isaac Newton gave the extraterrestrials their biggest shot in the arm when he embraced the infinite universe as the basis for his hugely influential system of physics. Even so, the aliens of the early modern period remained creatures of philosophy rather than science. -Matthew Stewart

I was born and have ever remained in the most humble walks of life. -Abraham Lincoln

The only thing that remained consistent over the years was my ability and enthusiasm to tell the story. -Herb Trimpe

I learned many things from Professor Brown, including his philosophy toward research, but there is one thing he said that I recall with particular clarity: 'Do research that will be in the textbooks.' It is not easy to do such work, but this has remained my motto. -Akira Suzuki

The problem of different sensitivities of distinct protein groups to lysosomal inhibitors has remained unsolved and may have served as an important trigger in the future quest for a non-lysosomal proteolytic system that may be involved in at least certain aspects of intracellular protein degradation. -Aaron Ciechanover

I marketed pens – on the phone. But the beauty of the gig was that you had to call these strangers and say, 'Hi, how ya doing?' You made up a name, like, 'Hey, it's Edward Quartermaine from California. You're eligible to receive this grandfather clock or a trip to Tahiti.' You promise them all these things if they buy a gross of pens. -Johnny Depp

Japan has consistently remained a friend of Indonesia since the end of World War II and has regarded cooperation with Indonesia as a top priority. -Shinzo Abe

Despite the fact that he's been dead for over seventy years and his prose considered purple and overwrought by many, H.P. Lovecraft's work is still widely read and has remained influential for generations. -Ellen Datlow

It took me ten years to write a proper story. I floundered about trying to shape something, counting on the 'feeling' I had as I wrote, only to discover upon rereading my work that the feeling had disappeared, and what remained was an empty shell. -David Bergen

Much of my journey in Kazakhstan was about understanding the legacy of the Soviet times and finding out what remained of nomadic. -Tim Cope

Anyone who's promoting the exact diet that they were in previous years probably isn't keeping up with the latest science, though in general, the balance of evidence has remained remarkably consistent – centering one's diet around whole plant foods. -Michael Greger

For me, true beauty has nothing to do with wrinkles and everything to do with the fact that my maternal grandmother raised five children just after the war and remained a fighter throughout her life. True beauty is the slick of red lipstick my paternal grandmother would put on before going to church on Sunday. -Monica Bellucci

The early Rockefellers made their wealth from being in certain businesses and remained personally very wealthy. -Ratan Tata

Free speech has remained a quintessential American ideal, even as our society has moved from the ink quill to the touch screen. -Marvin Ammori

The ancient superficial idea of the uniform and progressive growth of the human personality has remained unaltered, and the erroneous belief has persisted that it is the duty of the adult to fashion the child according to the pattern required by society. -Maria Montessori

The – the early Rockefellers made their wealth from being in certain businesses and – and remained personally very wealthy. Tatas were different in the sense the future generations were not so wealthy. They – they were involved in the business, but most of the family wealth is put into trust, and the family did not, in fact, enjoy enormous wealth. -Ratan Tata

Considering all that's happened in my life, I feel like I'm a pretty levelheaded person that has remained happy and not let my shortcomings overtake the better part of me. I'm fulfilling the things I wanted to fulfill, and I'm still sane. -Leonardo DiCaprio

One of my great heroes, John Berger, he's in his 80s now. One of the reasons that he's remained young and all-around fantastic is his ongoing receptivity to new things. I think that's important. -Geoff Dyer

I've never turned to anybody for advice and counsel. Even when I was a very small child, I had to stand on my feet because of the circumstances of those times, and somehow, the circumstances have remained more or less the same. I have to take my own decisions. -Indira Gandhi

Throughout my career as a lawyer, teacher and labor leader, books have remained my constant companion – stuffed into a briefcase, overflowing on my bedside table, stacked on my desk at work. Books have carried me to distant worlds, opened new doors and made me feel empathy, compassion, anger, fear, joy, acceptance – and everything in between. -Randi Weingarten

I've met so many who have opened doors for me and remained in my life both personally and professionally. After a while, networking doesn't feel like 'networking.' It's both serendipitous and unpredictable, and something that just naturally becomes part of your work life and your personal life. -Narciso Rodriguez

As a 10-year veteran of the NFL, I had a unique perspective weekly to see the heartfelt commitment of the fan. Regardless of years of disappointing and winless seasons, the true fans remained die-hard in their loyalty to 'the Team.' -Burgess Owens

When Peyton went into the game and remained the starter, it was OK with me because our team was winning games. We won a championship. -Brock Osweiler

If the Latterday Saints had not abandoned plural marriage, they would have remained a fringe religion and would never have moved into mainstream American culture. Today, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints thrives. It is one of the fastest growing religions in the country and is the most successful American-born religion. -David Ebershoff

Not long ago, in response to a spell of insomnia, I learned some of the principles of meditation, to empty my mind piece by piece. It was like the old game of jacks – cautiously lifting each jack clear of its neighbor until only the empty background remained. -Thomas McGuane

My father is an amazing person. While he was a huge star, he never carried his stardom home and always remained simple and just our father at home. I have four siblings, and we were all very grounded. We lived a very simple life: would go in an auto rickshaw to school, played with normal boys. -Mahesh Babu

My mother's openness has remained inspiring to me. I strive to be a skeptic, in the best sense of that word: I question everything, and yet I'm open to everything. And I don't have immovable beliefs. My values shift and grow with my experiences – and as my context changes, so does what I believe. -Amy Tan

I grew up reading comics – mostly Marvel – Doctor Strange was my favourite comic book and has remained my favourite as an adult. It's the only comic book movie property I've ever gone after. I felt uniquely suited to it. -Scott Derrickson

In my experience of the men of action I have met – whether from the Second World War or Iraq or Vietnam – they often had to do things that they would rather not reflect upon afterwards. This is perhaps one reason why the story of the Bielskis remained untold for so long. -Edward Zwick

The kings of Spain brought us the conquistadores and masters, whose footprints remained in the circular land grants assigned to those searching for gold in the sands of rivers, an abusive and shameful form of exploitation, traces of which can be noted from the air in many places around the country. -Fidel Castro

As a rule, Michael Balcon was at great pains to ensure Ealing remained very British. There was no point our trying to be MGM, and we didn't see a lot of American stars. -Douglas Slocombe

A few of Ellison's short stories from the 1940s and 1950s were widely anthologized over the years. After a while, it became generally known that he was at work on another novel. Though he remained aware ever afterward of the authority 'Invisible Man' gave to him, no second novel followed his brilliant debut in 1952. -Darryl Pinckney

The reason there is no noblesse oblige about Dubya is because he doesn't admit to himself or anyone else that he owes his entire life to being named George W. Bush. He didn't just get a head start by being his father's son – it remained the single most salient fact about him for most of his life. -Molly Ivins

I have always had this thing about moving around, and that has just remained, regardless of my physical changes. That feeling about it has never changed. -Merce Cunningham

A word about blue jeans, which, when I was growing up, were called dungarees, one of the more unfortunate marketing ideas of our time: Starting as a work garment for miners, the ubiquitous blue jeans became a staple of the counterculture starting when Brando wore them in 'On the Waterfront' and remained so through the anti-war protests of the '70s. -Roger Stone

'Seven Turns' was a tough album because we knew that the critics would use it to determine whether or not we should have remained broken up. -Dickey Betts

I became quite a diva, and intolerant, and people knew when I was not pleased. Some people were afraid of me, and other people just kind of blew me off. But I wasn't making any friends.

One day, I will tell my story… where I came from and where I am now and how I remained positive. -Nargis Fakhri

Without U.S. independence, North America would have remained a rural, non-industrial breadbasket. Blessed as it was with natural resources, agrarian North America would have supplied cotton and beef and lumber to industrial Britain. America would thus be more like Australia – a nice enough place to live, but no kind of world power. -Steve Bannon

I went to see England against Switzerland at Wembley with my dad and brother, too. That was in 2008, Fabio Capello's first game in charge. Jermaine Jenas scored, and we won 2-1. I remember the national anthem was incredible. I sang it with pride – always do. -Harry Kane

If you're making a salad of any kind, cut the herbs, stems and all, and toss them into your mixed greens salad, a Romaine salad, iceberg, Bibb – it just adds a special touch. -Alex Guarnaschelli

I turned pro as a 20-year-old, won a world title a year later, and remained a world champion ever since. -Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

I have a penchant for playing characters that have been victimized repeatedly and still stood their ground and still remained unembittered. -Drea De Matteo

There was such a realness about Elvis. He never really changed from that humble boy from Tupelo, Mississippi. He became this huge star, but he always remained that Southern boy. -Drake Milligan

When we acquired Secureworks, if we had taken it and made all the salespeople into Dell salespeople, we would have totally destroyed Secureworks. Instead, it remained Secureworks but with capital from Dell and access to Dell's customers. And now, it's a great business. -Michael Dell

My parents separated before I was born, but they remained friends, so I was close to both sides of my family, with siblings and cousins and godparents. I've had the same best friend since grade six. -Winnie Harlow

Nondiscrimination has been the law of the land for over three decades, yet, in some workplaces, the standard for treatment of pregnant women has remained in the dark ages. Some are fired or demoted, with no hesitation, when a modest accommodation would allow them to continue to work and support their families. -Valerie Jarrett

'Daddy used to be a Georgian,' Stalin's son, Vasily, once said. Actually, the dictator didn't truly become Russian; he remained Georgian culturally. Yet he embraced the imperial mission of the Russian people. -Simon Sebag Montefiore

I like songs to mean something as well as sound good, and Paul Simon is a maestro. While Art Garfunkel was a voice and moved on to other things Simon remained the genius lyricist and composer. -Tim Pigott-Smith

Prediction is a mug's game, but taking the side of water polluters has not been a winning political strategy for 50 years. Presidents Reagan, Bush I, and Bush II all undertook to weaken water regulations in the name of economic growth. They left office; the regulations remained. -Charles C. Mann

As the label has developed over the years, more and more structure and tailored pieces have been added, and so, whilst the core values of the brand have remained, I feel it's important to try new things and add more layers and dimensions to a collection every season. -Matthew Williamson

My grandparents were deeply affected by war, and it was obvious that the men who fought were horribly affected, as were the women who remained at home. -Andrea Riseborough

Live Nation is one of the most unique, exciting companies in the world and has remained at the forefront of the live entertainment industry by continuing to innovate and bring live entertainment to more fans around the globe. -Peggy Johnson

Even before his detention, my father was fighting many cases. He remained in jail in Multan. He remained in jail in Bannu. But we were not allowed to go see him there. We always saw him in courts. So for me, the courts were a place where you dressed up to see your father. It had a very nice feeling to it. -Asma Jahangir

I love Baltimore. It is a city with a giant heart and has remained one of my favorite places to keep returning to on tour. It is unique and beautiful, and you can't mistake it for anywhere else in the world – Baltimore is one hundred percent Baltimore. -Kevin Morby

Although drag has a long cultural history in America, it remained largely underground till the late 1980s. -Jenna Wortham

After my mother and father separated when I was 5, my mother moved to Washington, D.C., and my father remained in North Carolina. Later, I moved to New York and would often drive down to D.C. to see her. We'd ride around together talking and listening to music. -Brian Tyree Henry

I went to church as a boy, and then I quite quickly stepped away from religion. But I remained fascinated by the need people have for religion. -Sebastian Lelio

I think sleep is probably the neglected stepsister in the health conversation today. I think we've done a good job regarding physical activity and diet, but sleep has remained out there in the cold, and that's surprising to me. -Matthew Walker

My parents and my brother and I left the Soviet Union in 1981. I was six, and Dima was sixteen, and that made all the difference. I became an American, whereas Dima remained essentially Russian. -Keith Gessen

The credit of my good upbringing goes to my mother, who's not only been a single parent to my brother and I, but she's also been 'our' manager for the longest time. Our father, on the other hand, remained elusive and away from the family for most part of our lives, which left a certain void but also made us creative and reflective. -Kubra Sait

By the early seventeenth century, a new consensus began to arise: the idea that man was born incompetent for society and remained so unless he was provided with 'education.' -Ivan Illich

The South Side loves me – I've got a song with Jermaine Dupri – and I've got songs on the East Coast and songs on the West Coast. Now, if I could just find me a rapper from up North. -Nate Dogg

When I was younger, I was living in that green room and accompanying them to all the different theaters that they worked at.

You can measure success by the number of friends who have remained loyal to you, and you to them. -Richard E. Grant

I feel basically good about my career because it's remained constant. What I do has never been especially in vogue or gotten high on the charts. At the same time, I haven't had to stop performing any of my music because it aged in style. -John Prine

Making 'Orphee' has been a true labour of love, one that has been a part of my life for six years, and yet the music always remained fresh – it was constantly in a state of flux and renewal. -Johann Johannsson

We're not really a state. We're a colony. Everything we've ever had – timber, coal – it's all been extracted out of our state. Our people have been here and have worked in those industries, and they remained poor, but the people outside of our state that are the ones that come and get the timber, get the coal, have become billionaires. -Richard Ojeda

If you look at the approach Theresa May has taken to Brexit so far, she has the instincts of a Brexiteer but the cautious pragmatism of a remainer, which is where I think the British people are. She brings incredible resilience, and we have to allow her to get on and negotiate this deal. -Jeremy Hunt

When I was sold from Real Madrid to Inter, I would have preferred to have remained in Spain. -Wesley Sneijder

What happened in Iraq and Syria was that the world remained silent as ISIS expanded. -Nadia Murad

Some people see Jermaine Dupri as a producer, and they don't really know what the songwriting skills are. -Jermaine Dupri

While awaiting deportation proceedings, my parents remained in detention near Boston, so I could visit them. They would have liked to fight deportation, but without a lawyer and an immigration system that rarely gives judges the discretion to allow families to stay together, they never had a chance. -Diane Guerrero

The few days that I shot with Jayalalithaaji, I got to observe her very closely. I was very impressed by her grace, beauty, and dignity. She came to the sets with her mother. So did I. She remained aloof on the sets and didn't speak much to anyone. -Hema Malini

Jermaine Dupri is a b-boy, and he's dope. -KRS-One

In the '50s, '60s, '70s, before television became easily accessible, even the most well-known writers were not recognised. The writers remained mostly an anonymous lot then. -Ruskin Bond
