Quote I was an overweight kid, and my father struggled with his weight, too. We would go for a ride on his motorcycle on Sunday morning to get doughnuts, to make pizza together, or go get ice cream. I quickly learned that food equalled love and attention.

I was just this...
Quote: Ashleigh Murray Good Morning I was just this little theater geek. I joined the drama program my freshman year. I read the morning announcements my sophomore year. I didn't have to eat in the cafeteria with everyone else because my drama teacher was cool. Everybody knew who I was, and that's all I ever wanted as a theater kid. Ashleigh Murray Good Morning
I think the worst...
Quote: James Rollins Good Morning I think the worst and most insidious procrastination for me is research. I will be looking for some bit of fact or figure to include in the novel, and before I know, I've wasted an entire morning delving into that subject matter without a word written. James Rollins Good Morning
A rebel. That was...
Quote: Judith Viorst Good Morning A rebel. That was me when I was younger. What was a rebel from New Jersey? A rebel was moving to the Village, not sleeping with top sheets, not eating a hot breakfast in the morning, not having 20 rolls of toilet paper and 10 boxes of Kleenex. Judith Viorst Good Morning
Probably the happiest period...
Quote: Eleanor Roosevelt Good Morning Probably the happiest period in life most frequently is in middle age, when the eager passions of youth are cooled, and the infirmities of age not yet begun; as we see that the shadows, which are at morning and evening so large, almost entirely disappear at midday. Eleanor Roosevelt Good Morning
In my barrio, jobs...
Quote: Greg Boyle Good Morning In my barrio, jobs work and money saves lives. When I have had the funds to place a gang member on a job site and pay his salary, I've seen him stop banging. When, on the rarest of occasions, an employer has offered a job to one of these youth, I've witnessed kids suddenly have a reason to get up in the morning. Greg Boyle Good Morning
I'm tired of Italian...
Quote: Richard Belzer Good Morning I'm tired of Italian gangsters. Not that I don't watch 'The Godfather' every morning when I get up and 'Goodfellas' when I go to sleep at night. But I've just always been fascinated by Russia as a country, by the Russian personality. And now Russia is literally a gangster nation. Richard Belzer Good Morning
Sydney in general is...
Quote: Baz Luhrmann Good Morning Sydney in general is eclectic. You can be on that brilliant blue ocean walk in the morning and then within 20 minutes you can be in a completely vast suburban sprawl or an Italian or Asian suburb, and it's that mix of people, it's that melting pot of people that give it its vital personality. Baz Luhrmann Good Morning
I don't know, but...
Quote: Marc Jacobs Good Morning I don't know, but I always loved that image of a girl putting toenail polish on a guy - her boyfriend, or something like that. Or a guy waking up in the morning and reaching over and putting on his girlfriend's shirt. Like Keith Richards putting on one of Anita Pallenberg's blouses, or Courtney Love putting nail polish on Kurt Cobain. Marc Jacobs Good Morning
I breakfast when I...
Quote: Joseph Pulitzer Good Morning I breakfast when I get up, lunch when I get the chance. If I never get it, I forget it. Sometimes I dine at seven, sometimes at midnight, sometimes not at all; and I never get to bed until four or five in the morning. Everything depends on the news; the hours make no difference to me. Joseph Pulitzer Good Morning
I think people have...
Quote: Iris Apfel Good Morning I think people have to sharpen their eyes and look. I always feel like a big sponge: I feel like I learn lots of things by osmosis, and I feel that I'm always absorbing. I mean, when people say, 'What is your inspiration?' I could throw up. I mean, I'm inspired by the fact I get up in the morning. And I'm still here. Iris Apfel Good Morning

People with high levels...
Quote: Tom Rath Good Morning People with high levels of wellbeing have been careful to work out early in the morning and not to have heavy meals throughout the day because you kind of fall off a cliff in terms of your energy by 2 or 3:00 if you have a lunch with a lot of heavy foods. Tom Rath Good Morning
If you'd asked me...
Quote: Steve Harvey Good Morning If you'd asked me then if I saw how big 'The Morning Show' was going to be, I couldn't tell you. But I knew I could reach people not as a character but as , because although I tell jokes for a living, I've also lived, and I think I can relate to you more than you know. Steve Harvey Good Morning
I reached a point...
Quote: Dick Cheney Good Morning I reached a point towards the end on the old heart where I had trouble getting out of a chair. All I wanted to do was get out of bed in the morning and walk to my office and sit back down in the chair. Now I throw 50 pound bags of horse feed in the back of my pickup truck and I don't even think about it. I'm back doing those things. Dick Cheney Good Morning
Chronic malnutrition, or the...
Quote: Cat Cora Good Morning Chronic malnutrition, or the lack of proper nutrition over time directly contributes to three times as many child deaths as food scarcity. Yet surprisingly, you don't really hear about this hidden crisis through the morning news, Twitter or headlines of major newspapers. Cat Cora Good Morning
I won't speak for...
Quote: Bob Iger Good Morning I won't speak for the entertainment industry. I speak for Disney. I've seen people in the industry come to work every morning paranoid about what the other person or other company is doing. That means you're spending time and focus on somebody else's business instead of your own. Bob Iger Good Morning
I was raised in...
Quote: Stanley Hauerwas Good Morning I was raised in an evangelical Methodist church. Evangelical meant that though you had been baptized and made a member of the church on Sunday morning, you still had to be 'saved' on Sunday night. I wanted to be saved, but I did not think you should fake it. Stanley Hauerwas Good Morning
Along with Facebook, Microsoft,...
Quote: Franklin Foer Good Morning Along with Facebook, Microsoft, and Apple, these companies are in a race to become our 'personal assistant.' They want to wake us in the morning, have their artificial intelligence software guide us through our days, and never quite leave our sides. Franklin Foer Good Morning
I woke up on...
Quote: Cameron van der Burgh Good Morning I woke up on the plane this morning and was turning on my phone and I had to put my pin number in. That's when I realized that since the age of 10 I've been using 2012 as my pin number. But now that I've won gold in the 2012 Olympics, I've achieved that goal and, for the first time in 14 years, I'll have to change my pin. Cameron van der Burgh Good Morning
It's a lot harder...
Quote: Valentina Zelyaeva Good Morning It's a lot harder to stick to my regime when I'm travelling, so when I'm home, I make sure that when I wake up in the morning, I drink one litre of water with lemon to cleanse my body from the inside, and then I'll have a big jar of vegetable juice. Valentina Zelyaeva Good Morning
Most songs have meager...
Quote: Tom Waits Good Morning Most songs have meager beginnings. You wake up in the morning, you throw on your suspenders, and you subvocalize and just think. They seem to form like calcium. I can't think of a story right off the bat that was that interesting. I write things on the back of my hand, usually, and sing into a tape recorder. Tom Waits Good Morning

If you want to...
Quote: Antonio Brown Good Morning If you want to be the best, you can't take the path of least resistance. Every morning, you wake up, and your mind tells you it's too early, and your body tells you you're a little too sore, but you've got to look deep within yourself and know what you want and what you're striving for. Antonio Brown Good Morning
When I was younger...
Quote: Yuna Good Morning When I was younger I would go to the airport with my friends and drive out 2 A.M., 3 A.M. in the morning and just hang out until sunrise watching planes fly in and fly out. Just sit there and dream about how, one day, that's going to be us in those flights. We're gonna be one of those people with places to go. Yuna Good Morning

Quote: Jim Clyburn Good Morning Pharmaceutical companies are enjoying unprecedented profits and access with this Administration. Yet the Republicans' prescription drug plan for seniors has been a colossal failure, and over 43 million Americans wake up every morning without health insurance. Jim Clyburn Good Morning
One improvement I have...
Quote: Lincoln Steffens Good Morning One improvement I have learned from my childhood experience with my father: I do not threaten punishment in the morning. That was awful. Late into the night I would lie awake tossing and wondering what he was going to do to me. Usually he did nothing. A quiet, impressive 'talking to' was all I got. Lincoln Steffens Good Morning
The amazing thing about...
Quote: Glennon Doyle Melton Good Morning The amazing thing about love and attention and encouragement and grace and success and joy is that these things are infinite. We get a new supply every single morning, and so we can give it away all day. We never, ever have to monitor the supply of others or grab or hoard. Glennon Doyle Melton Good Morning
I like to be...
Quote: Jane Kaczmarek Good Morning I like to be with my children - not just quality time, but quantity time. I like to be there in the morning when they're waking up. I like to practice piano with them. I like to be there at supper. I need them as much as they need me. Working is not as important to me as being a mother is. Jane Kaczmarek Good Morning
I wake up every...
Quote: Paula Deen Good Morning I wake up every morning happy for where I am in life. It's not all about the cooking, but the fact that I can contribute by using my influence to help people all over the country. In the last two years, my partners and I have fed more than 10 million hungry people by bringing meat to food banks. Paula Deen Good Morning

Quote: P. J. O'Rourke Good Morning I think it's been hard for people to understand how Islam can be a good religion, and yet the Islamists are evil. Those of us who have had experience with Islam understand this, just as we understand the difference between snake handlers and people going to church on Sunday morning. P. J. O'Rourke Good Morning
Driving a motorcycle is...
Quote: Hugh Laurie Good Morning Driving a motorcycle is like flying. All your senses are alive. When I ride through Beverly Hills in the early morning, and all the sprinklers have turned off, the scents that wash over me are just heavenly. Being House is like flying, too. You're free of the gravity of what people think. Hugh Laurie Good Morning
Somebody said to me...
Quote: Ozzy Osbourne Good Morning Somebody said to me this morning, 'To what do you attribute your longevity?' I don't know. I mean, I couldn't have planned my life out better. By all accounts I should be dead! The abuse I put my body through: the drugs, the alcohol, the lifestyle I've lived the last 30 years! Ozzy Osbourne Good Morning
