I never told a joke in my life.

Been Had

Yeah, I mean, climbing's always been a massive hobby of mine up until, kind of, recent times when I've had family, but no, it's been a driving passion in my life and, uh, I've always wanted to climb the Matterhorn. It was the mountain that, sort of, inspired me to climb, as a youngster. So, it was great to be able to get to do it.

Years Been

- Angela Cartwright

Achievement Small

I'm so much more gratified by my life now that I have an expertise.

Some Other

I find that I've tried to become a better hockey player every year and not just hold on. At the same time, I've also made it a point to increase or grow in some other area of my life. If I were just playing hockey, I would probably be done with the sport.

Very Mostly

I was a teacher most of my life, which I loved. I had a very happy working life, and when I retired, I thought I must do something, and I've always read a lot of fiction - you learn so much from fiction. My sentimental education came mostly from fiction, I should say, so I thought I'd try.

- Anita Brookner

Private Certainly

Certainly my life will not ever be as private and discreet, and perhaps I should even use the word insulated, as it was before.

Life Experience

- Ann Aguirre

Myself Spent

I've spent my life supporting myself.

- Ann Beattie

I Think About

Like Profession

What I like to wear, I do myself. I don't know how that sounds, but it's the truth. My life is so mixed with my profession that I don't know where I begin or my work ends.

- Ann Demeulemeester

Passionate Issue

I'm passionate about people. I've spent my life in advocacy. People matter - whether or not we agree on the issue, people matter.

How I measure riches is by the friends I have and the loved ones I have and the people that I care about in my life, and that's where my values are and that's where my riches are.

- Ann Romney

Nature Tell

I have lived pain, and my life can tell: I only deepen the wound of the world when I neglect to give thanks the heavy perfume of wild roses in early July and the song of crickets on summer humid nights and the rivers that run and the stars that rise and the rain that falls and all the good things that a good God gives.

- Ann Voskamp


Whatever I'm writing comes organically out of my life.

- Ann Voskamp

Natural Posture

Gratitude's not a natural posture. The prince of darkness is ultimately a spoiled ingrate, and I've spent most of my life as kin to the fist-shaker.

- Ann Voskamp

Governor Come

When a governor asks you to come and serve... or a president, subsequently in my life - you do so.

- Ann Wagner

North Interacting

I got a part-time job as a cashier at Home Depot in North Miami Beach on April 1, 1985. I didn't expect to be in retail all my life, but retail was ingrained in me from my grandmother. I enjoyed interacting with people, and I got opportunities.

- Anna Faris

Play Actress

I play a character every day of my life, and I don't want to play a character as myself. They can judge me as an actress, not as a person. I'm not a spokeswoman for Anna.

- Anna Friel

Never Been

I've never been onstage in my life.

- Anna Friel
