I can't lobby you, but my new partner, Jack, can lobby you.' -Jack Abramoff

I definitely want to do more movies, and I'm also a writer, so I have a few screenplays that I'm working on, one of them based off my one-woman show that I used to do in New York. Two of the screenplays I've written by myself, and then I'm also working on one with my writing partner, Tom Riley, who's in London. -Eliza Coupe

If I had a partner who asked when I was going to the gym or commented that I was eating too much or asked if I really needed an extra potato, that would make me feel awful. It would be terrible. -Penny Lancaster

To some extent, the idea that rock 'n roll used to have this sort of free antediluvian identity, frolicking in the 1950s with Elvis or something, is totally wrong. It's insane. Elvis' relationship with Colonel Parker, his manager, was one of the most possibly corrupt, certainly lucrative, and intense business partnerships ever in rock n' roll. -Ann Powers

When I make a movie, I don't break it down and analyze it.

There are many people in the world who feel that if only they had a bigger car, a nicer house, better vacations, a more understanding boss, or a more interesting partner, then their life would work. We all go through that one. Slowly we wear out most of our 'if onlies.' -Joko Beck

If the rights of civil partners are met differently in law to those of married couples, there is no discrimination in law, and if civil partnerships are seen as somehow 'second class' that is a social attitude which will change and cannot, in any case, be turned around by redefining the law of marriage. -John Sentamu

There is a difference between civil partnerships and marriage. That difference does not mean one is better than another. -John Sentamu

There's an amazing interaction with the audience that happens because they are very much another scene partner. -Tatiana Maslany

We've got to move beyond the idea that the public and private sectors are at odds. Government has to lay the groundwork for private equity to productively invest in things like education. It's a partnership, not a battle. -Sebastian Pinera

I've always told Will, 'You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and be okay.' Because at the end of the day, Will is his own man.

I think that old school style of 'I'm your parent and I'm greater than you' doesn't work. What I establish with my children is a partnership. -Jada Pinkett Smith

Nobody can predict the future. You just have to give your all to the relationship you're in and do your best to take care of your partner, communicate and give them every last drop of love you have. I think one of the most important things in a relationship is caring for your significant other through good times and bad. -Nick Cannon

Jealousy can even be good for love. One partner may feel secretly flattered when the other is mildly jealous. And catching someone flirting with your beloved can spark the kind of lust and romance that reignites a relationship. -Helen Fisher

Seventy percent of the fish we eat is black market, fished in violation of international laws. Our ignorance makes us unwilling partners in crime. Rogue economics is turning the global market into our worst nightmare. -Loretta Napoleoni

After 35, I felt like I'd been in these relationships; some were great, some weren't so great, but they weren't right partnerships. -Essence Atkins

You are preparing yourself for a scene, and the most important thing is to remain emotionally available and remain in the moment with your scene partner.

An ideal day for me is a combination of a fun-exciting creative moment with work partners, some laughs and games with my kids, a good surf session, and great conversation with friends around a meal. -Yves Behar

If you break up with your partner, go straight to the studio. You're going to make great music. -B.o.B

I believe that it's an author's job to cast his imagination into the far spaces. Your life should – and I think it's inescapable that it will – inform your work. I'm all for using anything that can make your art better, but your intuition should be an equal partner. -Brent Weeks

Saudi Arabia is one of India's most valued strategic partners. -Salman Khurshid

If I had a long-term partner, I don't think I'd be an actor. It'd be too much of a strain; you have to work too hard to balance that life with a family and a mortgage and all that stuff – it would be too much. -Rory McCann

I really think that you have to find a partner that compliments you and is somebody that pushes you and is better at some things than you are, so they can push you to improve yourself as a person. That's my take. -Ashton Kutcher

Women basically want the same thing – a good passionate story, a great fantasy – and for our partners to do the laundry and the washing up. -E. L. James

I think being raised by a single mother put me on the outside, and I would watch my mother's married friends and think, 'Why does she put him down in public?' or, 'Why is he so rude to her?'

I can tell you Kristen Hager is one of my all time favorite people to work with ever and one of the greatest scene partners, and I'm such a lucky guy. -Sam Huntington

In terms of television and movies, I've been really interested in seeing the partnership of comedy and beauty and heart. I think they can go together really well and really thoughtfully.

I'm very relaxed. I have a family, I have a partner of 20 years, I have a wonderful life; nothing could be better. -Elton John

Y'know, every relationship is different. There are good marriages, bad marriages, connected partners, unconnected partners. -Sandra Bullock

I believe that there is an important part of every human being that is defined in terms of their significant other: how we choose our partner, and how we behave when we are with them. And that is the part that interests me. How that part of the personality is forged doesn't just interest me, it fascinates me. -Angeles Mastretta

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it's possible. But creatively, it's more like painting: you can't just use the same colours in every painting.

The most important quality in a partner is a sense of humour. -Clare Balding

In the family, in interpersonal relationships, even in friendship, faith is tremendously important.

And you have to support and believe in your children. -Greg Graffin

I've seen straight, partnered women explain their decision to stay at home by noting that childcare would have taken too much out of their paycheck – as if this cost was just theirs to bear! -Jessica Valenti

I want a partner in crime and a Bonnie to my Clyde. I've just been so focused on my career. Women don't like being number two, so I've been glad to keep my distance so I could focus on me, get my life together and take care of my mom without disappointing the woman I love. -Shemar Moore

I always speak so highly of my mom because she's my partner in crime, and none of this would be possible without her love and support. Always have to make time for Mom. -Shemar Moore

It's not a failure if a marriage or partnership ends after a certain number of years. I think, in general, we expect too much of partners.

I'm considering getting married again. I've not lost faith in that institution. I'm older; I'm smarter. I'm no longer searching for something to complete me… and therefore I'm now able to find someone to be a partner with. -Teri Polo

I have my own high standards for what I want in a partner and how I want to be treated. I bring a lot to the table. I'm not talking about material things but what I have to offer as a person – love and loyalty and all the things that make a good relationship. -Jennifer Lopez

Romance is important to me, and to have a romance with your husband takes a bit of doing. The key is to make sure your partner misses you. That means you have to take yourself away. -Tori Amos

I think you can write very good comedy without a partner, but what I love about it, working with a partner, is that you get to places you'd never get on your own.

The only thing Steve Jobs has ever asked me in all the years we've been together and have been partners, the only thing he has ever asked me is: 'Make it great.' -John Lasseter

The 'super' stands for this feature called supersymmetry, which, without getting into any details, predicts that for every known particle in the world, there should be a partner particle, the so-called supersymmetric partner. -Brian Greene

I don't really believe that you need to be married to someone to be their life partner. -Lindsey Vonn

I have to visualise my jokes, live my jokes, feel the audience because every audience is different. It's like having a different dancing partner every night. -Rita Rudner

Russia and China are very natural partners. We are neighbors with an immense common border. -Vladimir Putin

Above all, such sports as judo, in my view, teach people to relate to each other. They teach us to respect a partner, teach us to understand that an externally weak partner can not only put up worthy resistance, but, if you relax and take too much for granted, may even win. -Vladimir Putin

Without the Fender bass, there'd be no rock n' roll or no Motown. The electric guitar had been waiting 'round since 1939 for a nice partner to come along. It became an electric rhythm section, and that changed everything. -Quincy Jones

If we are happy within ourselves, we don't accept or demand that our partner should fulfill every need. We need to be comfortable with our own company. -Nathaniel Branden

When I used to perform weddings, the image I always had was the image of a triangle, in which there are two partners and then there is this third force, this third being, that emerges out of the interaction of these two. The third one is the one that is the shared awareness that lies behind the two of them. -Ram Dass

My favorite thing about being engaged is your partner knowing what you want. For us, we love going out to eat. -Waka Flocka Flame

I love being a mother. My children fill me up in many ways, and inspire me in many ways, but I need a partner in my life, and I think most people feel that way. -Madonna Ciccone

Conjoined twins simply may not need sex-romance partners as much as the rest of us do. Throughout time and space, they have described their condition as something like being attached to a soul mate. -Alice Dreger

All my life, I have judged my worth by how much I have been loved by a man. It's so with a lot of women, that their self-esteem is measured by how much they are loved by a man, their partner, their boyfriend or maybe their husband. In my case, it may be because I grew up without my father. -Katrina Kaif

Every one has her own love life. Every one has a dream to get a perfect life partner. But this is not so easy in real life. In fact, one doesn't love; it happens. -Katrina Kaif

Assume everything you put on the Internet can and will be seen not only by the person you're talking about, but your future romantic partners and bosses, too. -Mara Wilson

The foundation of a financial fresh start actually has nothing to do with money or specific financial dos and don'ts. The first, and most difficult, step is to absolve yourself and your spouse or partner of any guilt. -Suze Orman

On the economy, the U.S. cumulatively is our most important investor, most important trading partner, most important sort of tourists, and we have now a tie that will… a link that will be here for many, many years to come, and that is the big Philippine-American community in the United States – three million of them. -Gloria Macapagal Arroyo

I love to cook. I'd have a dinner party, and someone would be like, 'Can you do this at my house?' So my catering partner and I – we were both struggling actresses at the time – thought, instead of getting a waitressing job, let's do what we love. We always said if things pick up, our acting careers come first. -Meta Golding

Chickpeas are one of my favourite things to serve with chorizo or lamb meatballs; they also work brilliantly as the quiet partner in a vibrant alphonso mango salad. -Yotam Ottolenghi

I felt like if I wasn't sharing myself physically, I would actually get a chance to see the downfalls of my partner. I would be able to minimize my intake of being disappointed. -Jessica White

I say 'date potential.' The reason why is no matter who you date, anyway, five years from now, you're going to be different, and he's going to be different. The key is to really find somebody that you can grow with that you can change with, evolve with and that you can be partners with. -Hill Harper

There will always be crazy things that happen in our lives, but love is the central connector. If we commit to love and partnership, the other stuff doesn't matter. -Hill Harper

There's nothing wrong with wanting a partner and doing the things to have one. To protect ourselves, we have to say, 'I don't need one.' -Hill Harper

I will not reach my full potential as a man unless I find my partner. -Hill Harper

We all have different timetables in reaching and realizing that being in healthy partnership is better than being on our own. -Hill Harper

Part of the problem in today's world is that many men are taught that they have to 'make it' before they should even consider committed to a healthy partnership. -Hill Harper

We come from Second City where you're taught if you make your fellow stage partner look good, that makes you look good. -Ian Gomez

Part of the strength that Charlie and I have as a team is we've been able to keep our priorities straight through our entire partnership. We've been able to maintain a life outside of skating, and though we've given up a lot of things and we've been training really hard our entire lives, we've been able to maintain great social lives. -Meryl Davis

Social media teams tend to be decentralized – a motley mix of in-house experts, off-site consultants and international partners. The result: Confusion, rogue tweets, and off-message posts are almost inevitable. The worst gaffes live on in social media infamy. -Ryan Holmes

By allowing multiple partners to contribute, an open platform can nurture an entire ecosystem of developers and apps. Good products integrate and become great products. Users get a one-stop solution for social needs. -Ryan Holmes

The reality is that SXSW is packed with brilliant entrepreneurs, investors and partners. They're everywhere, zipping back and forth like thousands of atoms. Your chances of colliding with one actually improve just by standing still. -Ryan Holmes

Just as God's love to us believers, his children, is unalterably the same, whatever may be the manifestations of that love; and as his peace with us is the same, however much our peace may be disturbed; so it is also with regard to our being in fellowship or partnership with him: it remains unalterably the same so far as God is concerned. -George Muller

Before I got into stand-up, I used to be a hip-hop dancer in a crew, and my name was J. Smoove, and my partner was J. Groove. -J. B. Smoove

I guess it turns out choosing your life partner from a group of men trying to get their break in show business by sitting around shirtless in a swimming pool while cameras watch around the clock isn't the path to a soulmate after all. -Willie Geist

There's a huge dichotomy between people who grow up with alienation, which, for me, was invaluable, and people who grow up so completely privileged that it breeds this complacency and lack of desire to question or challenge or do anything significant. Those are the types of people who become partners at the corporate law firms. -Glenn Greenwald

I'm excited about my own network, BounceTV. It's the first African-American-owned broadcast network. It's myself, my partner Rob Hardy, and some other African-American businessmen, including Andrew Young and Martin Luther King III. -Will Packer

Of course I have the license to make up things, but I think a lot of what's written about China is misleading, and most Americans don't know much about China, in-depth, even though China is such a crucial business partner, rival, whatever. -Anchee Min

There is an interaction and action, reaction between two people. One should show honesty in a relationship. Be honest to your partner and tell him everything. How long can you do things with dishonesty and that's wrong. Don't get into a relationship if you can't be honest. -Randeep Hooda

The sacred, I shall say, is that which acts as your partner in the search for the highest and deepest things: the real, the true, the good, and the beautiful. The name I'd like to give to the kind of relationship that gives us a chance to find such things is a 'circle of meaning.' -Brendan Myers

Once you do embark upon the separation or divorce process, it is very important to remember three key things: Be kind, be reasonable, be brief. Remember that this person will no longer be your spouse, but he or she will continue to be your co-parent, family member, and perhaps business partner in certain assets or entities. -Laura Wasser

It has taken me a long time to work out the function of ex-boyfriends, at least for me: how they can help you work out what you want from life and from a partner by showing you what you don't. If a man is your ex, it's better all round if he was not Mr. Right. -Nicola Monaghan

CARE and our partner organizations have found that one of the most effective ways of stopping child marriage is to tap into a parent's love for their child. When parents learn about the consequences of child marriage, they're far less likely to push their children into it. -Helene D. Gayle

Transactive memory works best when you have a sense of how your partners' minds work – where they're strong, where they're weak, where their biases lie. I can judge that for people close to me. But it's harder with digital tools, particularly search engines. -Clive Thompson

We make no greater voluntary choice in this life than the selection of a marriage partner. This decision can bring eternal happiness and joy. To find sublime fulfillment in marriage, both partners need to be fully committed to the marriage. -James E. Faust

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

I remember someone telling me that when he saw the back of a woman's head, he knew that was the woman he was going marry. I laughed that away as silly talk. But I guess when a relationship has to happen, it happens seamlessly. Your partner just walks into your life. -Vidya Balan

I think if we want to find happiness by finding a life partner, then it's a little selfish. You should be complete within yourself, so that when you're in a relationship, you can give out happiness rather than expect it. -Shahid Kapoor

I do believe in soulmates and happy/successful marriages. No marriage can be happy 24×7 for 365 days. Both partners have to make the relationship work, is what I believe in. -Kajol

I firmly believe that success lies in the combination of both talent and business savvy, and that the magic comes through partnership between both. -Delphine Arnault

Finding good partners is the key to success in anything: in business, in marriage and, especially, in investing. -Robert Kiyosaki

A president from a partner nation should not make comments on Italian politics. -Anibal Cavaco Silva

What an unappealing responsibility that is to lumber any prospective lover with: the need to be a saviour, not simply an equal partner. -Mariella Frostrup

Too often we forget that an ideal partner is someone who enhances an already full existence. -Mariella Frostrup

In romance, we feel the need to zoom in and expound on our partner's foibles in intimate detail; in friendship, we tend to do the opposite, avoiding confrontation through fear, lethargy or both. -Mariella Frostrup

Placing 'amicable' and 'separation' together creates an oxymoron – we don't usually decide to end a partnership until the very sight of our soon-to-be ex fills us with disgust, misery, agony or a combination of all three. -Mariella Frostrup

Many new lovers and spouses struggle to reconcile themselves with their partners' relationship history, but it's an insecurity I left behind in my 20s. -Mariella Frostrup

We invest less in our friendships and expect more of friends than any other relationship. We spend days working out where to book for a romantic dinner, weeks wondering how to celebrate a partner or parent's birthday, and seconds forgetting a friend's important anniversary. -Mariella Frostrup

The more brutal it gets in the working world, the more appealing the prospect of having someone at home creating a sanctuary becomes. Increasingly couples, particularly with children, are making that tough choice, with one or other partner electing to embrace domestic duties while the other brings home the cash. -Mariella Frostrup

Any MP has to have a proper family life; they have to have support of their partner. -Margaret Moran

When you left the house today, you had the intention of putting clothes on and you did. You didn't try to put your pants on today. You simply put them on. The same has to hold for all of our intentions. We don't try to be more loving partners. We make the intention, and we act on it. -Patch Adams

As a director, you're a bit of a dictator. But I feel that you're a better director if you're open to other people's ideas. It means that it's tougher: you have to be in a choosing process; you have to put the ego aside. As long as everybody's aiming in the same direction… I'm open to my main partners in the film crew. -Denis Villeneuve

I've been standing at water coolers for the past thirty years talking to women about their love lives, and here's what I've learned: Eventually, most women I know want to be partnered. -Tracy McMillan

Is our desire for partnership just an evolutionary remainder, a Togetherness Delusion, where millions of women only think they need a relationship to be truly happy? Maybe. But you know what? That's fine with me. -Tracy McMillan

When a person partners with God in delivering a miracle to another person, they have done what they were supposed to do; God can then deliver the miracle to the other person. -Bruce Wilkinson

I am confident that partnering my Dollywood Company with a great company like Gaylord will create something truly special. -Dolly Parton

India is a country with huge potential, and it remains an attractive high priority market for PepsiCo. We believe we have only scratched the surface of long term growth opportunities that exist for PepsiCo and our partners. -Indra Nooyi

Adidas is just right. They've been, like, a partner I couldn't be more thankful for. I really feel like they've helped increase my popularity. You know? It's tight to be able to attach to their brand and be able to add whatever I can offer to their brand. It's nice to know that they appreciate it. They are always showing love. -Big Sean

When two people in an intimate-couple relationship look at their interactions as opportunities to learn about themselves instead of change each other, they are infusing their relationship with the energy of spiritual partnership. -Gary Zukav

For me, the times in my life when I've been single have been more formative and crucial than I could have imagined. I can cope, function and be happy on my own. I'm highly capable. That doesn't mean I don't like being with a partner, or that I don't feel more rounded when I'm with someone. But the times on my own have been so good. -Lesley Manville

You need to set near-term milestones. Put the assumptions down on paper, and make it to your vision or ultimate product. Your team has to understand where they're going. Your partners need to understand where they're going. -Tony Fadell

My business partner and make-up artist Kim Jacob and I have employed every member of staff, decided where every desk in the office should go, tried every product on our faces. -Louise Nurding

Some women just skip having babies or adopt because they don't want to get fat or they haven't put in the time to find a partner. It's great to adopt, but a lot of adoptions are motivated by vanity and laziness. -Jaime Pressly

So many Hollywood actresses become successful and then just keep on going – they miss out on having a partner and a baby and end up lonely. -Jaime Pressly

Marriage, in its truest sense, is a partnership of equals, with neither exercising dominion over the other, but, rather, with each encouraging and assisting the other in whatever responsibilities and aspirations he or she might have. -Gordon B. Hinckley

Hollywood and fashion are symbiotic partners, especially during awards season. -Brad Goreski

Mukesh calls me his true life partner… I just enjoy being Mukesh's wife. -Nita Ambani

I want to be a man who is truthful and who won't let pride get in the way of my ripping myself open to my partner and saying, 'Here I am. This is me.' I feel there's something powerful when a man reaches a point in his life when he can be completely vulnerable. -Dwayne Johnson

Microsoft's an important partner for Dell, an important company in the industry. -Michael Dell

The United States is a key ally, a strategic partner, and a reliable friend of the Philippines. -Benigno Aquino III

I have long argued that, if China and the United States were interested in pursuing a strategic partnership, Africa is the best place to start, as neither enters the situation with past colonial baggage, and both possess interests that are quite complementary. -Thomas P.M. Barnett

An Obama administration truly looking to break with the molds of the past would stop treating Africa as an obligation and start treating it as globalization's next great opportunity, understanding that Chinese – along with Indians and Arab sovereign wealth funds – are natural partners in this process. -Thomas P.M. Barnett

I advocate for a totally new view of the role of the patient: patient as engaged partner, not passive recipient. -Dave deBronkart

I look forward to strengthening the U.S.-U.N. partnership and working closely with Secretary of State Kerry towards our shared goals of peace, development, and human rights. -Ban Ki-moon

We've had this program for a number of years now, called 10,000 Small Businesses, where Goldman Sachs has convened a group of partners to basically give business education to small business owners. -Lloyd Blankfein

From the outset, the Obama administration has recognized that building a robust skills infrastructure means building strong partnerships with community colleges. -Tom Perez

As a working mother, the last thing you need is to be hard on yourself. As a stay-at-home mother, the last thing you need is to be hard on yourself. As a twenty something with no job prospects or life partner in sight, the last thing you need is to be hard on yourself. -Karen Finerman

When I joined Time Inc., one of the things that was important to me was ensuring that our content is where consumers want to read it.

While U.K. is one of India's most important trade and investment partners, India has become one of the largest investors in the U.K. -Preneet Kaur

The Lord Jesus Christ is our partner, helper and advocate. -Joseph B. Wirthlin

It becomes dangerous for somebody who doesn't want their boss to know their sexual preference to use online networks to push for laws supporting gay marriage or same-sex partner rights if they can't do so with a pseudonym. -Rebecca MacKinnon

I've said before, the number one thing that we have to work on is protecting the gay community from sharia law. Now, in the United States, it's probably not a big issue right now, but my brother-in-law is gay, and his partner and I would like them to be able to travel any place in the world without them risking harm. -Foster Friess

A lot of my work is about developing relationships with corporate partners such as Jaguar and Diageo. -Ben Elliot

Intermarriage is not a calamity but an opportunity for both a Jewish and non-Jewish partner to learn. -Edgar Bronfman, Sr.

The hardest thing about working with your partner is that the work starts to become first. -Paul Dano

CoverGirl's Girls CAN movement is perfectly aligned with my passion for helping young women overcome life's challenges, and my commitment to highlighting girls' successes. I am thrilled to partner with CoverGirl to embark on this exciting journey to improve the lives of girls and women in the world. -Soledad O'Brien

Brand marketers don't believe that ad-tech companies view brands as true partners. Ad-tech companies think brand marketers are paying attention to the wrong things. And publishers, with a few important exceptions, feel taken advantage of by everyone. -John Battelle

When you have a writing partner and you're writing a comedy, your goal is to make each other laugh. -Lauren Miller

I have no problem selling ebooks for authors directly as an agent, but partnering with them is another matter. -Robert Gottlieb

'Empty Moves' is elegantly and coolly inventive. Two pairs of dancers shadow each other in slow, deliberate rearrangements and manipulations of legs and torsos, only occasionally switching partners or breaking free of the formal patterning. -Robert Gottlieb

The trouble with glossy magazines is that they tend to be stuffed with articles about handbag designers – the sort of women who, with their perfectly styled lives, immaculate houses, and adoring partners, make you want to become a hermit. -Kate Reardon

I am excited to partner with Aeropostale for my very own collection. It was a great experience to be able to work with them. Not only did I get to design an entire fashion line, but I got to do it at a great price point with quality clothes, both of which are very important to me. -Bethany Mota

100% of Net-a-porter customers have a man in their lives in some capacity, and 59% are married or living with a partner. -Natalie Massenet

Brands will increasingly handle their own e-commerce and rely less and less on local distribution partners. Why should they give away their profit margins? -Natalie Massenet

I eventually settled in Washington, where my partners and I have been fortunate to build a restaurant business that now employs thousands of Americans across the country. -Jose Andres

I never coast through a workout. This is been great for me physically, but it's also become a problem in two ways. One is that no matter how I'm feeling on a given day, I will absolutely kill myself in the gym, and it takes a huge amount of energy do that. I commit 110 percent. The other problem is that finding a workout partner is impossible. -Joseph Gatt

I know it sounds silly, but in auditions for film or TV, the words aren't as important – you need to get into the character and have the gist of the scene. But in theater, if you don't do it word for word, then you throw off your scene partner. -Morgan Saylor

What I look for in a project or partner is integrity and character; I love the concept of family entertainment and crosses over the generations, where you can sit kids with their grandparents and everyone has a good time. Those are the qualities that I want to bring to viewers. -Jodi Benson

There's a good argument to be made that companies that are private, where they're run by partnerships, where everybody has true stake in them and they're not playing with other people's money, that by default it's a safer system, because you really have skin in the game. You really own the company. -Andrew Ross Sorkin

For us, my wife and I and all of my partners believe that corporations have to be corporate citizens, and individuals who benefit from them, or who have built them, need to give back. -Mark Walter

I'm thrilled to partner with Gillette to help men understand what women want. If we're able to give them that information, and Gillette can give them the tools to get there, then we both win, and that's very exciting. -Hannah Simone

I think a lot of times we're so told in our world that marriage is everything, and having a partner is everything. If you look at our movies and things, it's all directed around that love, and if you don't have that love, how sad you are. -Brooke Elliott

My dad always said that 90 percent of marital problems could be solved by getting your blood sugar up, and he's right! So I would say pick a partner who's forgiving when you have low blood sugar and threaten to drive your car through your shared home. -Casey Wilson

I took a clown class at NYU – that's where I met June Diane Raphael, my writing partner and best friend. -Casey Wilson

Peter Kaplan was a partner, a mentor, and a friend. -Jared Kushner

The United States is already Mexico's largest trading partner. -Enrique Pena Nieto

For me, a dream partner is someone who is willing to learn and to put their trust in me. -Derek Hough

I was kind of reflecting on my life and certain experiences, and you know, when I'm teaching and coaching my partners on 'Dancing With the Stars,' I sort of use those stories and anecdotes to help them sort of overcome certain fears. -Derek Hough

I spent my entire childhood with my father. I started my first business at 16, and we became business partners. He's not just a mentor and somebody that I look up to, but he's also someone whom I took work ethic and determination and all of those qualities from. -Maksim Chmerkovskiy

What is a disloyal act? A person is disloyal if he treats you as a stranger when, in fact, he belongs to you as a friend or partner. Each of us is bound to some special others by the invisible fibers of loyalty. -Lewis B. Smedes

It was Barry Diller's idea to start 'The Daily Beast,' and he has turned out to be the best partner I've ever had. There's no one better to go into the jungle with. -Tina Brown

After doing some research with my agent, we found out Klipsch was an official Colts partner, and they were based in Indianapolis, which only added to my esteem for the company. I also have a passion for design and technology that developed while I was at Stanford and appreciate the quality of Klipsch's speakers and headphones. -Andrew Luck

My number one focus is and will always be football. I wanted to make sure that companies I partner with not only respect that, but also make sense and are quality products. I think Klipsch is synonymous with quality in the sound industry, so it was a natural partnership. -Andrew Luck

It's harder to score well in a slow round. The tendency is to overthink shots while you're waiting and become mentally exhausted. Instead, chat with your playing partners about anything but golf. Concentrate on each shot for no more than a minute. You'll stay fresh. -Rickie Fowler

Maybe there's some kind of modeling that can be tedious, like catalogue modeling, but there's a kind of modeling, with runways or working with Richard Avedon, that's not very far from acting. Besides the fact that you don't have a partner to react to, the body language is the same. -Isabella Rossellini

In 1972, Texaco Oil Company, in partnership with PetroEcuador, the state-run oil company of Ecuador, began to drill for oil in the jungles of the Ecuadorian Amazon. -Peter Coyote

My partner and I had our first son in 1996, and the office became the baby's room. Our second son was born in 2001, and the office became the kids' room. -Judy Gold

Most people know that there is this partnership between Yahoo and Microsoft on search. -Ross Levinsohn

There's love for your parents, your family, your spouse, your partner, your friends, but the nature of the connection you have with your child, there's nothing like it. It has its own character and it's so serious and so powerful, and so it's a prism through which I see everything. -Annette Bening

People should be allowed to marry, and gay marriage should be out there. If a man or a woman has a good partner and they love each other with their heart and soul, let them marry. I am very much for gay marriage. -Pierce Brosnan

Women are now very comfortable to have babies into their late 30s. You can be a father in your 50s. I'm not saying it's for everybody, and I think people have to get their own life secure before they take on the responsibility of a partner and children. -Michael Douglas

This is what we call smart power. Using every possible tool and partner to advance peace and security. Leaving no one on the sidelines. Showing respect even for one's enemies. Trying to understand, in so far as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view. Helping to define the problems, determine the solutions. -Hillary Clinton

The model of Coca-Cola is local, whether it's investing, partnering, sourcing, producing, or selling. We market and distribute locally; we pay taxes locally. And it works. -Muhtar Kent

Michelle Obama has gone from political skeptic to political partner to a woman with a White House agenda of her own, and an approval rating higher than the president's. -Jodi Kantor

My parents divorced when I was very, very young, but they maintained an incredibly amicable relationship. They were great partners, they were great parents, and they were great friends throughout my whole life until I was about 25, at which point they realized that they could relinquish; they could call it and move on. -Natalie Zea

I feel very blessed to have a partner in life who supports me, who is enthusiastic about what I want to do, who has been a great father, and who will be a fabulous grandfather. -Hillary Clinton

It's important to build trust if you're trying to deal with big things. Big issues require everybody to get outside their comfort zone, and people are more willing to do so if they believe that their partner is sincere in their efforts. And the only way you can do that is to engage them on a personal level. -Jeb Bush

I've always deplored bad heterosexual values that dictate the minute a marriage is over the former partners no longer speak to each other; only straights could be so cruel and inhuman as to reject totally the person with whom they've shared their life for 20 or 30 years. -Edmund White

'Let's Get Harry' was where I met Bob Singer and worked with him for the first time, and then 'Reasonable Doubts' was the second time, and there was a thing after that called 'Charlie Grace' that was the third time. I liked working with Bob. A nice man and a good partner. -Mark Harmon

Walla Walla is where I make wine, with Eric Dunham. He and I partnered up on a small project for me. We make pretty good cabernet and syrah. -Kyle MacLachlan

I think very few people do find a relationship where, every moment of every day, everything they do comes together. That's why, in a nutshell, everyone loved Barbara in 'The Good Life.' She was the perfect partner. It was a formula. She wasn't glamorous. She wasn't clever. But she was a good partner. That's too easy, too perfect. -Felicity Kendal

The problem men seem to have, and women, too, is that they have this very structured idea that we should find a partner and settle down and be, you know, faithful. And yet clearly this is really, really hard for anybody to do! -Felicity Kendal

When I first decided to launch a clothing line, I was pregnant with my daughter Spencer-Margaret, so I looked for a retailer with values that mirrored my own growing family concerns. Kmart is a family store where value-conscious moms shop, so my partnership with Kmart seemed like a natural fit. -Jaclyn Smith

All the time I was writing hit songs with my partner David Porter, I always had the yen to perform. Sure did. And when the opportunity came, I took it. The first album, 'Presenting Isaac Hayes,' didn't do so hot, but it was like a prelude for what was to come. -Isaac Hayes

My business partner Robert De Niro knows a lot about hotels; he opened the Greenwich Hotel in New York City. -Nobu Matsuhisa

In urban America, you do not so much meet a romantic partner as inherit the product of someone else's romantic crimes. -Lee Siegel

Kmart is incredibly supportive of the Hispanic community and is therefore an ideal partner for my exclusive collection. -Thalia

I have an American son and an American partner, so marriage might logistically make sense at one point. My partner is a stay-at-home father, so if he wants to be on my health plan, or tax wise, or maybe on paper we want to have our I's dotted and our T's crossed, but emotionally, neither of us really feels the need for it. -Evangeline Lilly

My partner doesn't read. He's not illiterate – he just chooses not to read – and I love reading. I'm obsessed with reading. -Evangeline Lilly

I'm a much healthier person through my relationship with my husband. I've become a more fulfilled person – it's a great partnership. -Cate Blanchett

I was in Boots buying contact lens solution, and my mobile went off. It was Jay-Z's partner at Roc Nation asking me what I was up to. He asked if I'd been to America, and I said, 'No.' Then he said, 'I'm putting you on a flight to New York tomorrow.' -Rita Ora

If a planet is setting in the West at the time of our birth, its angle strikes us in such a manner as to draw us to a certain type of marriage partner, and the planets under the earth, in the North, have an effect upon our condition in the latter part of life. -Max Heindel

The three short years I spent at Harvard, where I lived with excellent people, taught me not only that I must know how to choose my partners but also that choosing excellent partners is a skill you can learn. Obviously, when you spend time with the best, you learn how to choose among them. -Jorge Paulo Lemann

One of the things about a great team is that the whole exceeds the sum of its partners. -Tracy Hickman

I cannot fire Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys. I am not his employer. I do not have such authority. And even if I did, I would never fire Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys. I love Brian Wilson. We are partners. He's my cousin by birth and my brother in music. -Mike Love

Despite the strength of the feminist movement in the 1970s and beyond, a fable has persisted that educated women are rejected as marriage partners. -Karen DeCrow

As the future is never known with certainty, the evaluation of the prospective benefits requires the formation of expectations.

Mortensen

Fear of the unknown is a great creative partner. -Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

I do think taking the 20s to take the most chances you can is important, because you're not going to hurt anyone else during that time. And if you do have a partner, you need a couple years to rehearse that relationship. -Gail Sheehy

We were a very politically active family. My father was one of the first lawyers in South Africa to have a black partner, so I grew up very aware of the struggle going on. Coming from that background, it really gave me chills to have my music be a part of the election of the first black American president. -Trevor Rabin

When you have a diagnosis of cancer, or any serious illness, your choices are basically to be passive and kind of accept whatever is offered you, or to be active and to learn about your disease, and understand your options, and be an active partner with your doctor. That's the course I took with all three of my cancers. -Hamilton Jordan

People think getting a new partner is like getting a new car. -Orlando Bloom

I blame my work for a lot of things. I thank my work for a lot of things, too, but the trouble with being so passionately involved in work is that it becomes like a lover, like your partner, because it nourishes you. -Joel Edgerton

The peaceful and friendly relations between our two countries is a blessing not just to Asia, but to also the whole world. -Li Keqiang

China's reform and opening-up programme and Europe's integration process have both contributed significantly to global peace, development, and prosperity. China firmly supports the integration of Europe and regards the E.U. as a strategic partner that deserves our confidence. -Li Keqiang

Hire people who are smarter than you, and don't be afraid to work with them as partners. Make it clear that you plan to learn from them, not just the other way around. The right, smart, motivated people respond very well to that approach, particularly coming from a younger manager like I am. -Lynn Jurich

America has chosen Georgia as a junior partner. The United States believes that Saakashvili is creating a democratic Georgia, but these are merely facades. -Bidzina Ivanishvili

Buying only what you know can end in disaster. Just think about Enron's employees and business partners, the 'locals' who bought lots of its stock because they thought they were in the know. -Kenneth Fisher

My biggest mentor has been the Benchmark partnership. We have six partners and a flat structure, and everyone is paid the exact same paycheck. It's a team model versus an individual model. -Peter Fenton

We reviewed our process at Greylock and discovered that the best investments are non-obvious enough that they result in a mixed vote by our partnership. -David Sze

We've tried to build Sequoia Capital with an eye for the long term that we really look for in the companies we like to partner with. -Douglas Leone

Youku Tudou is a hybrid, like combining Netflix and YouTube. Like Netflix, with Youku, which launched in 2005, we syndicate a library of longform content and create original content. The Tudou model started with user-generated content but is increasingly becoming about partner-generated programming. -Victor Koo

I do wish to emphasize that in light of the Alibaba deal, Youku Tudou management will remain independent, and we will continue to be open to opportunities for cooperation with other strategic partners going forward. -Victor Koo

In the 1970s, I bought some cheap horses, then decided that if I was going to be in it, I was going to go big time. So in 2001, Bill Casner, a partner with me in Excel, and I bought a breeding farm, WinStar Farm, together. -Kenny Troutt

Venture capital is unscalable. Production equals the time each partner has. -Bill Gurley

Most firms are hierarchical in nature, with everyone getting different slices of the economic pie. The problem is those slices are negotiated every time a firm raises a new fund, so in between funds, which is most of the time, the partners are trying to outgun one another to make a stronger case for themselves. -Bill Gurley

After I met my partner, Mr. Protherow, we decided to start a banking project, and at the same time we started to think already about a business on a bigger scale. At the very beginning we thought more about gaining money, to have a normal life with our families, etc. -Vladimir Potanin

To create a big company, you need more partners, as it is hard to handle such a project alone. Such projects bring access to the expertise and management resources of the partners, and their connections above all. -Vladimir Potanin

We donate time, expertise, and resources to a wide array of charitable and nonprofit organizations around the world each year through partnership initiatives that make a real difference in our communities. -Joshua Bekenstein

The reason that the company decided to invest in Tesla was not to target a profit gain. We did it as a means to further a partnership between the companies. -Takeshi Uchiyamada

When somebody's calling you 'Mommy,' it's a wonderful thing. But also to have that responsibility and to know that you and your partner have this little thing that's totally relying on you – and it made me, I suppose, less selfish. Not that I was mega-selfish to start with, but it's lovely having that responsibility. It's scary. -Phyllis Logan

I'm very lucky to have a husband who cooks, for a start. It's a good partnership. I met him through a friend, and we just hit it off. -Lesley Nicol

If you go out eight times and play tennis eight times this week, yeah, it's the same rules, but it's a different game every time you're out on that court. You're working on a different part of your game every time you're out on that court; your partner's working on a different part of their game, and the act of being watched changes it. -Kevin Spacey

The paranormal bad boy is usually a fiercely loyal partner for the heroine. Once his sights are set on her, he doesn't notice other women, and he's utterly unconcerned with what anyone else thinks of his choice. -Jeaniene Frost

Even though many couples are choosing to marry later in life, our laws haven't been updated to address dating partner abuse. -Gabrielle Giffords

I have heard, 'Never go to bed angry,' and that makes sense. Unless you're always checking yourself, a grudge or something small can break apart a relationship, and you start to forget what is so amazing about your partner. -Diplo

I see a curator as a catalyst, generator and motivator – a sparring partner, accompanying the artist while they build a show, and a bridge builder, creating a bridge to the public. -Hans-Ulrich Obrist

I am stricken with the peculiar curse of being a 21st-century woman who makes more than the man she's living with – first with a husband for 13 years and now with a new partner. -Sandra Tsing Loh

In our youths, many of us suspected that being tied down to a partner and family might constrain us. But after 40, even that landscape starts to shift. Many singletons turn inward and start longing for the things so many of us longed to be free of in our 20s. -Sandra Tsing Loh

The partnership between the United States and Egypt is crucial to both countries, and it can't be predicated on political manipulation and threats of withholding aid. -Ahmed Zewail

It is an honor for me to take part in Canon's Project Imagin8ion, partnering with a brand that is empowering young filmmakers and is at the forefront of technology. -Bryce Dallas Howard

One of the challenges that Vancouver and cities across the country are facing is that we don't have a federal partner in terms of building for transit, not in the way we need. -Justin Trudeau

I used to build lofts in SoHo back when there was nothing there. I had a stoop on West Broadway between Prince and Spring. My partner and I would sit there, eat dinner, and watch the world go by. -Tim Daly

By the end of 1978, we had 11 partners and six franchisees, we were operating in 22 cities, and we had about 6,000 clients. We had left Electronic Accounting Systems and were doing our own processing on our own computers. -Tom Golisano

I would say history is a clear witness to many of the problems that have erupted when two partners from the same industry or same country have come together. -Sunil Mittal

I am convening the African Leaders Forum on Disability in partnership with Special Olympics so that a marginalized population long unrecognized does not remain in the shadows. I consider this a critical, moral and practical challenge. -Joyce Banda

To play a cop's wife – there's so much in that world, the wives or partners of anyone who is a first responder – it's not an easy job. It's not an easy way to live, to say goodbye to someone in the morning and not know what's going to happen throughout the day. -Amy Carlson

I went professional with my partner, Erin Boag, 11 years ago, and we had success competing round the world, but appearing on 'Strictly' has changed my life. -Anton du Beke

I don't mind how good or bad my partner is, as long as we have a lovely time. -Anton du Beke

I'm happy to dance with anyone, to be honest. I've had some great partners, who have all been talented. But not all of them at dancing. -Anton du Beke

When you dance together, there's a fabulous interaction. It's quite intimate. You're touching your partner, leading them. Learning how to behave in that person's proximity is a skill. I love it. I can't imagine tiring of it. -Anton du Beke

I have a partner, Danny Strong; he's an incredible writer and, really, my backbone. So when we don't see eye to eye, it's painful. -Lee Daniels

My partner, Danny Strong, came to me with this idea of telling a story about my life and merging that with music and the hip-hop world. He wrote 'The Butler' and originally wanted to do 'Empire' also as a movie. -Lee Daniels

I'm a filmmaker. I'm always searching for the truth in everything I do. I demand it from my writing partner and my crew, actors, and so hopefully, we're making people think. -Lee Daniels

It's a bit of a cliche, but I think girls like to get flowers. I think books are quite romantic, too. If you can find an interesting book, that brings something out in your partner that can be very romantic. -Douglas Booth

Equality and prosperity shouldn't be seen as enemies of each other, but as partners. One reinforces the other. -Nicola Sturgeon

For my parents' generation, the idea was not that marriage was about some kind of idealized, romantic love; it was a partnership. It's about creating family; it's about creating offspring.

Everybody you work with has their own voice, and if you do your job well enough, even their closest friends or their partner of 40 years isn't going to recognise the fingerprints of a ghostwriter. -Michael Robotham

The public/private partnerships are taking various forms in India. It is individuals who are socially oriented are setting up schools. They're setting up colleges. They're setting up universities. They're setting up primary-education schools in the villages, particularly the villages their original families came from. -Azim Premji

One of our fundamental human needs is finding our partner that we hope we will stay with for the rest of our lives. You often find the same search in other genres. The mystery novel has a romance subplot. Literary novels often focus on that relationship but do not often end well. -Lauren Willig

I will work in partnership with the Government, all political parties, and civil society to safeguard and advance the future of all Singaporeans. -Tony Tan

Many of our traditional partners are positioning themselves as strong regional players… Shell is a global player. And as the global gas markets develop… we will be creating a global strategic partnership. -Alexey Miller

We met our partners in Europe, and they are signaling to us that supplies from traditional European gas production sources is falling, and falling substantially. Without new volumes of Russian gas, they simply cannot cope. -Alexey Miller

In many ways, a song-writing partnership is like a marriage.

Their goals, outlooks, and basic philosophies should be similar. -Richard Rodgers

We need to just study what other countries have done. There are examples of a strong partnership between the defence establishment and the private industry. -Baba Kalyani

I'm thrilled to be partnered up with SeaWorld. -Bindi Irwin

I hope that the United States would cooperate with the partners to reduce its debt. The debt is a problem. The debt is with you, but unfortunately, the debt is not only with you but with us and with the rest of the world because we all, one way or another, are dependent on the dollar. -Sergei Lavrov

Assertions that Russia has undermined efforts to strengthen partnerships on the European continent do not correspond to the facts. -Sergei Lavrov

Working with Will Smith was one of the highlights of my career. He is so talented and has a tremendous work ethic. We are still friends, and I reach out to him and his partner to pitch ideas.

I work during the days and have night classes on Wednesday and Thursday and live with my partner, who is in school during the days and works Wednesday through Saturday nights.

Samasource creates jobs in regions where more traditional forms of employment in low-income economies, such as manufacturing, are difficult to scale because of poor infrastructure. In a village in Rukka, India, for example, our small data entry partner employs over 60 people doing various types of Internet research for Samasource. -Leila Janah

One thing I have always promised is to be open and transparent and to treat employees and partners with respect and integrity. -Brian Krzanich

We have a great rapport together. -David Hallberg

It's one of the hardest things in the world to sustain a monogamous relationship for many years. People out there who have been with their partners for 30 years or more – I salute you.

The ballets you do make you into the final product you are. And I had extraordinary partners. -Patricia McBride

As a small business or startup, one of the factors you should always consider when looking at a potential partnership is the incremental potential reach.

I love science fiction. There are ways in which this community kept me and my partner alive through some very, very bad years, and I will always acknowledge that. -Nalo Hopkinson

Every FBI professional understands that thwarting the threats facing our nation means constantly striving to be more effective and more efficient. -James Comey

To accomplish its mission, the FBI relies heavily upon its law enforcement and intelligence partners around the nation and around the globe. By combining our resources and our collective expertise, we are able to investigate national security threats that cross both geographical and jurisdictional boundaries. -James Comey

When I started 'Hudson Hawk,' I realized I was dealing with a strong-willed producer, a strong-willed actor, and, at times, a strong-willed studio, and I was the junior partner in all of this – the guy who hadn't proven anything in terms of box-office success. -Michael Lehmann

Seven years ago, when I started free soloing long, hard routes in Yosemite – climbing without a rope, gear or a partner – I did it because it seemed like the purest, most elegant way to scale big walls. Climbing, especially soloing, felt like a grand adventure, but I never dreamed it could be a profession. -Alex Honnold

I like the simplicity of soloing. You've got no gear, no partner. You never climb better than when you free-solo. -Alex Honnold

To be clear, I normally climb with a rope and partner. Free-soloing makes up only a small percentage of my total climbing. But when I do solo, I manage the risk through careful preparation. I don't solo anything unless I'm sure I can do it. -Alex Honnold

It's like having a partner with you. -Albert Hammond, Jr.

I don't have a partner, so I take care of the mortgage by myself, and I was thinking, 'Oh God, I'm going to have to sell the house or find a new career.'

Studies show when people yell, they get themselves even angrier. Interesting factoid: If you and/or your partner's heartbeat becomes higher than 100 beats per minute during an argument, you will not be able to fully understand/process what the other is saying. -Karen Salmansohn

If your partner is angry with you, recognize that his anger is a misdirected plea for love. Your partner's simply upset because he feels something you said or did was a sign of not loving him enough. -Karen Salmansohn

I'm pretty professional. I'm very aware when I'm not playing well and what I need to improve. I'm pretty motivated to fix things.
