Some people help thousands of people directly, like Mar

Some people help thousands of people directly, like Marie Curie or Susan B. Anthony. Others help us by inspiring us, like Amelia Earhart. But you do have to help someone.
Brad Meltzer
Everybody knows now that Marie Lightfoot, the true crime writer, is dating Franklin DeWeese, the state attorney of Howard County, Florida. They know I’m a white woman; they know he’s a black man. That’s not news anymore.
Nancy Pickard
The ‘Daughter of the Regiment’ that I did in Boston was vintage Sarah Caldwell, which is to say it was brilliant. Before my career was over, I’m sure I sang the role of Marie at least a hundred times, often in productions that cost a fortune, but none touched hers.
Beverly Sills
Until feminists started wailing about the female’s passivity, submissiveness, and something called ‘victim status,’ I had no idea women were such doormats. My childhood was populated by Eleanor Roosevelt, Amelia Earhart, Pearl Buck, Marie Curie, Clare Boothe Luce, and the Duchess of Windsor.
Florence King
I was born in the Ottawa General Hospital right after the Gray Cup Football Game in 1939. Six months later, I was backpacked into the Quebec bush. I grew up in and out of the bush, in and out of Ottawa, Sault Ste. Marie and Toronto.
Margaret Atwood
I get along with Eva Marie really well, I think she’s really cool and I get to hang out with her a lot and she’s a lot of fun to be with.
Maryse Mizanin
To be honest, I’m no Marie Kondo at the best of times. I like living in comfortable clutter and have a peculiar kind of perception that enables me to ignore it. I call it Mess Blindness.
Susanna Reid
My great-grandmother was born in London, the daughter of a Brixton coachman, and became the most famous singer in Australia. Her name was Marie Carandini, Madame Carandini.
Christopher Lee
I love thinking of movie stars who could play the characters in the books I write. I think Charlize Theron would make a lovely Marie Antoinette.
Kathryn Lasky
What Marie Antoinette was to eighteenth-century France, Mary Pickford is to twentieth-century America.
Frank Crowninshield
I remember reading about the Marie Celeste when I was a kid and becoming obsessed with what happened.
Tana French
I am trying to Marie Condo the house starting with my books, although it’s really hard to part with them! But I really want to de-clutter and get rid of stuff I haven’t used for six months, whether it’s clothes, bags, or shoes.
Shabana Azmi
The ‘Donny and Marie’ show is incredible. It’s not a musical, but for sheer entertainment value and energy, it’s a real 10 out of 10.
Colm Wilkinson
On my mum Marie’s side, my nana was from the Republic of Ireland, and my granddad was from the north. Lots of families in Manchester have strong Irish connections, but it never occurred to me to play for anyone other than England.
Paul Scholes
Tyler Breeze! He is so amazing. He taught me so much about psychology when I was in NXT; he helped me so much with my matches with Eva Marie or Asuka.
At one of the live events somebody had a sign that said ‘If Eva Marie Is Here We Riot.’ I thought that was pretty cool.
Eva Marie
Funny enough, the first time I watched ‘Arrow’ was because Audrey Marie Anderson, who plays Lyla, was in my episodes of ‘The Walking Dead’ with me.
Juliana Harkavy
I’ll always be best known as Marie Osmond, but in my checking account and at home, I will gladly be Marie Craig.
Marie Osmond
Never in a million years would I want to live at Versailles with Marie Antoinette or anybody else. I hate to tell you this but I did not even like visiting Versailles. I found it just too ornate. It was like a complete diet of cotton candy, marzipan, and whipped cream.
Kathryn Lasky
Thousands do benefit from love, support and comfort in their final chapter: I watched my dad slip away without pain as Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen tracks played in a warm Marie Curie hospice, surrounded by doting nurses and his family.
Owen Jones
I mean I certainly tell the Maria Goeppert-Mayer story and I’m happy that life isn’t like that. I’m glad there were trailblazers like her and Marie Curie.
Donna Strickland
‘Marie Claire’ is one of those magazines that doesn’t feel as well known as it should be.
Joanna Coles
I’m not pretty. The truth is I didn’t think I could be a model at all. I was looking at some of the guys on the walls at Irene Marie and I thought to myself ‘Jesus Christ. I can’t do this. I don’t look anything like these guys’.
Channing Tatum
The concentration in my book on Marie Antoinette’s childhood and on her family influences. It is surprising how some books actually start with her arrival in France!
Antonia Fraser
I love Marie Osmond. Marie Osmond is really cool.
Jeannie Mai
Marie Cornelie Falcon, who lost her voice while performing – singing the line ‘Je suis pret’ – ‘I am ready.’ How much more tragic can you get?
Alexander Chee
Obviously I’ve had this fascination with aristocracy my whole life. Like, the kings and queens of 500 years ago… they’re like rock stars. If there was a ‘TMZ’ 500 years ago, it would be about, like, Henry VIII and Marie Antoinette and all those people.
During my time supporting Marie Curie, I’ve met so many people who have been helped by the charity.
Frankie Bridge
I’m Marie Lightfoot, or at least that’s the name my publisher puts on the covers of the books I write about true crime. In classic ‘true crime’ fashion, my latest one is titled ‘Anything to Be Together.’
Nancy Pickard
When you look at the light bulb above you, you remember Thomas Alva Edison. When the telephone bell rings, you remember Alexander Graham Bell. Marie Curie was the first woman to win the Nobel Prize. When you see the blue sky, you think of Sir C.V. Raman.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
I am vegetarian. I have a sweet tooth, so I try and avoid desserts. I binge maybe once a month. I eat every two hours, whether it is a Marie biscuit or just a slice of apple. As a result, my metabolism has improved, and this is a huge contributor to weight loss.
Vidya Balan
My performance outfits are very Marie Antoinette, sparkly corsets… and full skirts. And then we do another look that’s ’50s-inspired. Poufy skirts, big bows. Very fun, girlie and young, but otherwise, when I’m not in costume, I dress really normal.
Ariana Grande
Varese, Apollinaire, Ezra Pound, Leger, Gleizes, Severini, Villon, Duchamp, Duchamp-Villon, Marie Laurencin, Cocteau and many others were to me household names in the literal sense – names of familiar figures around the house.
Jacques Barzun
I remember seeing ‘The Bling Ring’ in cinemas and loved it – it was so cool. And ‘Marie Antoinette’ – I watched that when I was, like, nine or something. I thought it was the best thing ever.
Angourie Rice
I was born on September 30, 1939, in Rosheim, a small medieval city of Alsace in France. My father, Pierre Lehn, then a baker, was very interested in music, played the piano and the organ, and became, later, having given up the bakery, the organist of the city. My mother Marie kept the house and the shop.
Jean-Marie Lehn
My name is Constance Marie, and I am anti-princess.
Constance Marie
The doctors and nurses at the Biamba Marie Mutombo Hospital are saving lives every day and helping improve health care in the DRC which has been ravaged by more than a decade of war and disease.
Dikembe Mutombo
There were musicians that influenced me, but they weren’t all women. Teena Marie was a big influence because she wrote and produced her own music, which let me know that women could write and produce their own music, which was an empowering moment for me.
Queen Latifah
I have the high honor of being the only person who has been compared to Marie Antoinette, Darth Vader, and Cruella de Vil at once.
Louise Linton
At Christmas our house is like a Donnie and Marie Christmas Special.
Kevin Richardson
I played Simone, the French tutor for the daughter of a rich Manhattan couple, who goes to a costume ball as Marie Antoinette. While everyone else in ‘CSI’ races around in police gear, I had to wear a ballgown and bustle and two wigs. It was very heavy on the make-up side.
Louise Linton
Anne Marie Schubert is one of the most horrible district attorneys in the state of California. She represents Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions. It’s no wonder she continuously refuses to hold the police accountable for violence against people of color.
Shaun King
This might sound bad, but I really want to work with Eva Marie, just because it seems like that’s what people want.
I was 15 years old, taken out into a parking lot on the set of ‘Donny & Marie,’ and at the time I was 5-foot-5 and 103 pounds – like, nothing. I was told I was an embarrassment to my family and the show would be canceled if I didn’t lose 10 pounds.
Marie Osmond
One of the many pleasures of ‘Versailles’ is the way in which it seems to emanate not only from the vexed inner being of Marie Antoinette but from the interstices between what we imagine of her and what she was.
Stacey D’Erasmo
‘Lost in Translation’ was a year of my life, if not more, and then ‘Marie Antoinette’ was about three years of my life.
Brian Reitzell
Marie Curie is in a class all her own as the first female winner and still the only person to win the Nobel Prize in two different science categories. An astounding scientist.
Donna Strickland
I don’t know what to say about Jill Marie. The girls on ‘Girlfriends’ were all my babies.
Jenifer Lewis
If I had not played basketball and made the millions of dollars that I had made, I would never have been able to build a hospital in Congo. It started in 1997, and 10 years later I was able to unveil the Biamba Marie Mutombo Hospital, named after my mother, in my hometown outside of Kinshasa. It was such a blessing.
Dikembe Mutombo
My parents did give me a lot of books – biographies of Marie Curie – and I did read them, because I was interested.
