I have said this many times that there seems to be enough room in the world for mediocre men but not for mediocre women and we really have to work very very hard.
I think women are really good at making friends and not good at networking. Men are good at networking and not necessarily making friends. That's a gross generalization but I think it holds in many ways.
A Code of Honor: Never approach a friend's girlfriend or wife with mischief as your goal. There are just too many women in the world to justify that sort of dishonorable behavior. Unless she's really attractive.
So many women just don't know how great they really are. They come to us all vogue outside and vague on the inside.
I can't understand why the front pages of newspapers can cover bird flu and swine flu and everybody is up in arms about that and we still haven't really woken up to the fact that so many women in sub-Saharan Africa - 60 percent of people in - infected with HIV are women.
I think women are concerned too much with their clothes. Men don't really care that much about women's clothes. If they like a girl chances are they'll like her clothes.
I don't get this whole super-skinny obsession. I really think women look more beautiful when they let their curves show.
Comedy can be especially in a writer's room really aggressive kind of a very male-dominated room and it would be hard for women. It's not a nurturing place. It's not like a lot of women are going to say I can't wait to live that lifestyle and be in a writer's room until 2 or 3 a.m.
I'm for women choosing whatever they want to do but they have to really know what they are doing.
I find very often that very ugly women have really handsome men and vice versa because they don't have any competition. Sometimes handsome men have avoided me.
I just like to have words that describe things correctly. Now to me 'black feminist' does not do that. I need a word that is organic that really comes out of the culture that really expresses the spirit that we see in black women. And it's just... womanish.
Really every woman is an example to me because as women we go through so much pain. We have to live this perfect life when we are messed up inside. We all go through trials and tribulations.
If you don't love yourself you can't love anybody else. And I think as women we really forget that.
Women rule the world. It's not really worth fighting because they know what they're doing. Ask Napoleon. Ask Adam. Ask Richard Burton or Richie Sambora. Many a man has crumbled.
Genteel women suppose that those things do not really exist about which it is impossible to talk in polite company.
The only people you can really share certain things with in secret are your girlfriends.
I don't want to put a pause on the rest of my life I'm really enjoying getting older and the wisdom that comes from that.
Clinton is a big personality who has led a big life and for some of the media conventional wisdom to boil it down to a view that 'all people are really interested in' are a few moments of madness in the Oval Office gets him the importance of the presidency and the significance of his life all wrong.
You know how people always talk about how vision is the key to entrepreneurship and perseverance and really seeing what other people don't see? We can actually redeem a fair amount of that folk wisdom.
I don't think I really have any wisdom. Stay out of trouble. Good luck. Stay away from women because they will burn you haha.
After I had the Caesarean I was told I had really strong stomach muscles and so would heal very quickly. And I did. I was up walking about within three hours. Six days after having her I was out shopping and shortly after that I made it to David Walliams' wedding.
My wedding was at home so I didn't really want to wear a veil in my house. Instead I wore a lot of diamond hair clips. They were brooches actually designed by Lorraine Schwartz.
It gave me a lot of pleasure and pride that 90 percent of the crew for 'Monsoon Wedding ' and most of my film are women. We get the work done you know much lesser play of ego... And I really believe in harmony I believe in working in a spirit of egolessness and that the film is bigger than all of us.
A big part of being in a wedding is the financial obligation and that's something that people don't really talk about but if you're asked to be in a wedding you're gonna have to fork over some cash.
