“I haven’t always acted or reacted in a way that made me proud, but I didn’t make that same mistake twice,
and I think that’s what I love about adversity is that it always reminds me of what’s really valuable in life.”
~ Sandra Bullock,
Actress, Producer, Entrepreneur,
Founder – Fortis Films & Philanthropist
“Waiting gives you better knowledge of your partner. When you’re not blinded by lust
or the counterfeit intimacy that can come with premarital sex,
you can see the person you’re dating for who they are.”
~ DeVon Franklin,
TV Producer, Author, Speaker & Spiritual Success Coach
“There are so many famous people now that are
not really gifted or talented at doing anything
other than getting made up, putting on tight dresses, acting badly, getting married.
I mean, what the hell? I don’t know where we are
going with this here in America. And we are setting a tone
for the world, because everyone looks at what we do.”
“There was a time when fame meant that you were either
someone who is really gifted in your field or you were making an impact,
or you are famous because you were a really horrible person, you know?
But now, you can become famous by eating a frog. It’s just not the same thing.”
~ Debbie Allen

“God is not afraid of our inquiries. The question we must ask ourselves is whether we are we afraid of His.
If questioning exposes truth, let us question. A faith that is threatened by doctrinal inquiries and evaluation of certain tenets is no faith at all.
A faith that blindly demands belief subjugates the very inquisitive soul that God gave us.
What is more, it disqualifies itself from being a faith and more accurately falls under the category of a cult.
True faith welcomes questions; false faiths discourage and prohibit them.”
~ Samuel Rodriguez,
Founder & President – National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, Evangelist, Pastor, Movie Producer, Civil Rights Activist, Television Personality & Author
“Never speak from a place of hate, jealousy, anger or insecurity.
Evaluate your words before you let them leave your lips.
Sometimes it’s best to be quiet.”
