How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A poem records emotions and moods that lie beyond normal language, that can only be patched together and hinted at metaphorically.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You are outside life, you are above life, you have miseries which the ordinary man does not know, you exceed the normal level, and it is for this that men refuse to forgive you, you poison their peace of mind, you undermine their stability. You have irrepressible pains whose essence is to be inadaptable to any known state, indescribable in words. You have repeated and shifting pains, incurable pains, pains beyond imagining, pains which are neither of the body nor of the soul, but which partake of both. And I share your suffering, and I ask you: who dares to ration our relief? We are not going to kill ourselves just yet. In the meantime, leave us the hell alone.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In a land which is fully settled, most men must accept their local environment or try to change it by political means; only the exceptionally gifted or adventurous can leave to seek his fortune elsewhere. In America, on the other hand, to move on and make a fresh start somewhere else is still the normal reaction to dissatisfaction and failure.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The obese is in a total delirium. For he is not only large, of a size opposed to normal morphology: he is larger than large. He no longer makes sense in some distinctive opposition, but in his excess, his redundancy.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Freedom is poetry, taking liberties with words, breaking the rules of normal speech, violating common sense. Freedom is violence.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nothing is poetical if plain daylight is not poetical; and no monster should amaze us if the normal man does not amaze.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The successful Accelerated Reader is able to read larger than normal blocks or bites of the printed page with each eye stop. He has accepted, without reservation, the philosophy that the most important benefit of reading is the gaining of information, ideas, mental picture and entertainment-not the fretting over words. He has come to the realization that words in and of themselves are for the most part insignificant.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every normal person, in fact, is only normal on the average. His ego approximates to that of the psychotic in some part or other and to a greater or lesser extent.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Accept failure as a normal part of living. View it as part of the process of exploring your world; make a note of its lessons and move on.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The perfect normal person is rare in our civilization.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Cant is always rather nauseating; but before we condemn political hypocrisy, let us remember that it is the tribute paid by men of leather to men of God, and that the acting of the part of someone better than oneself may actually commit one to a course of behavior perceptibly less evil than what would be normal and natural in an avowed cynic.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Normality highly values its normal man. It educates children to lose themselves and to become absurd, and thus to be normal. Normal men have killed perhaps 100, 000 of their fellow normal men in the last fifty years.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The kingdom of God could be realized simply by daring to live differently from the normal conventions. The kingdom of God in the teachings of Jesus was not an apocalyptic or heavenly projection of otherworldly desire. It was driven by a desire to think that there must be a better way to live together than the present state of affairs. And it called for a change of behavior in the present on the part of individuals invested in the vision.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
He is a man of thirty-five, but looks fifty. He is bald, has varicose veins and wears spectacles, or would wear them if his only pair were not chronically lost. If things are normal with him, he will be suffering from malnutrition, but if he has recently had a lucky streak, he will be suffering from a hangover. At present it is half past eleven in the morning, and according to his schedule he should have started work two hours ago; but even if he had made any serious effort to start he would have been frustrated by the almost continuous ringing of the telephone bell, the yells of the baby, the rattle of an electric drill out in the street, and the heavy boots of his creditors clumping up the stairs. The most recent interruption was the arrival of the second post, which brought him two circulars and an income tax demand printed in red. Needless to say this person is a writer.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Those who wish to pet and baby wild animals, love them. But those who respect their natures and wish to let them live normal lives, love them more.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is a pleasure to give advice, humiliating to need it, normal to ignore it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Young Allie: When I'm with Noah I feel like one person and when I'm with you I feel like a separate person.
Lon: Allie, it's normal not to forget your first love but I want you for myself. I don't want to convince my fiancée that she should be with me.
Young Allie: You don't need to convince me. I know you're the one I should be with.More [07/13/2005 12:07:00]
Bert: [addressing Glen] But I'll tell you something. They're a bunch of little freaks. And the more normal we try to make them, the more lonely and isolated they're gonna feel.More [08/23/2005 12:08:00]
Vlad: Sometimes it's nice not to be special. Sometimes it's nice to listen to what everyone else listens to. Just to be normal for once.More [08/23/2005 12:08:00]
Chopper: I'm just a bloody normal bloke. A normal bloke who likes a bit of torture.More [09/23/2005 12:09:00]
Lloyd Miller: [whispering] I don't want to interfere, but I think it would be... I think we have to work on...
Corky St. Clair: I can't hear you!
Lloyd Miller: [normal voice] I think we have to work on the music a little bit more. But I don't want to make trouble. So,
[whispering again]
Lloyd Miller: and I don't really want to do this in front of them...
Corky St. Clair: Well, where do you want to do it?
Lloyd Miller: [whispering] Well, I think we have to sit down and make a schedule that includes some music time, because I think Jane and I have to work...
Corky St. Clair: Why are you whispering? I'm right here, you know?
Lloyd Miller: [raising voice considerably] Oh I'm sorry, do you want me to talk louder? Because I think that that it would be...
Corky St. Clair: Well now it's too loud! You know, just talk like a normal person, OK?More [10/22/2005 12:10:00]
Doing love scenes is always awkward. I mean, it's just not a normal thing to go to work and lay in bed with your co-worker.More [11/06/2005 12:11:00]
Zukovsky: Can't you just say "hello" like a normal person?More [11/07/2005 12:11:00]
Sandra: No one speaks of pavilions anymore, and that saddens me.

Sandra: Funny Girl was hot, hot, hot that year. And I begged my father to take us to see it, but he couldn't get his hands on a single ticket. Instead, he took us to see a matinee of Any Wednesday with Sandy Dennis. He said, Let's go see a woman who's going to be doing the exact same thing for the next 20 years. But she did it best in Any Wednesday, you have to admit.

Sandra: Come back to the Five and Dime, Barbra Streisand, Barbra Streisand.

Sandra: [about Barbra Streisand] ... she went down the Stoney End. She never wanted to go down the Stoney End, but somebody forced her down the Stoney End. We miss you, Barbra. Come back to the Five and Dime, Barbra Streisand, Barbra Streisand.

Sandra: I can recall to this day the thrill of knowing someone in an all-American family was losing her grip. The thought of the family hovering together terrified really turned me on. It was as if I could go over and reassure them and tell them I would take care of everything.

Sandra: It was a portrait Normal Rockwell forgot to paint: someone's mother home again ^Å in oils.

Sandra: When I was a little girl, I used to go home for lunch every day, and I'd pretend that my mother was a waitress in a roadside cafe. I'll have a side order, ma'am. A side order consists of a white-meat tuna, a dollop of mayonnaise, some carrot strips and potato chips. And then I'd sit at the counter... and ignore her.

Sandra: My parents got divorced five years ago after 38 years of marriage. I thought, oh what perfect timing.

Sandra: [talking about her new mother-in-law] I remember the first time I met her. My dad came to pick up me and my brother at my mom's house. He pulled up in a Thunderbird, and I got in the back seat, and I said, Dad, why didn't you bring a bigger car? She said, Don't bitch. We could've brought the TransAm. Don't wear your seatbelt. Where I come from, people die - they burn up when they wear their seatbelt. Charmed.

Sandra: The last time I went anywhere with my parents before the divorce, we'd gone to Vegas 'cause I was doing the telethon with Jerry Lewis. And we'd just had dinner at the Stardust Hotel, one of the eight international restaurants -- I believe it was Aku Aku, the Polynesian. And my mother grabbed a handful of after-dinner mints, and she started choking on them. So me and my brother walked really far ahead in the casino. And my dad finally got her a glass of water, and she washed it all down. She went, Oh my God, there must have been dust on those mints.

Sandra: My father's a proctologist. My mother's an abstract artist. That's how I view the world.

Sandra: ...there was something really great about growing up in a liberal, intellectual, Jewish household with three sensitive older brothers. But there were times, I have to admit, that I really got caught up in the romance of being gentile, especially around Christmas time.

Sandra: [imitating a gentile mother at Christmas] Oh sure, your father may be going through a little bit of a mid-life crisis. But I worship that man, and I adore you kids. You both have been under so much pressure lately, what, with the cotillion coming up, Babe. Get some sleep. Grandma's coming over real early. We have some terrific presents to open. Sweet dreams. Love ya. And may all your Christmases be white.More [11/14/2005 12:11:00]
Sandra: It was a portrait Normal Rockwell forgot to paint: someone's mother home again ^Å in oils.More [11/14/2005 12:11:00]
I live a normal life, I take care of our baby, I cook, and I look forward to the weekend so I can spend some time with my husband. It's the kind of change we all secretly dream of, but which isn't always easy to deal with.More [12/16/2005 12:12:00]
Harry Burns: You take someone to the airport, its clearly the beginning of the relationship. That's why I have never taken anyone to the airport at the beginning of a relationship.
Sally Albright: Why?
Harry Burns: Because eventually things move on and you don't take someone to the airport and I never wanted anyone to say to me, How come you never take me to the airport anymore?
Sally Albright: Its amazing. You look like a normal person but actually you are the angel of death.More [01/08/2006 12:01:00]
There are parties and stuff, but I don't go to a lot of them. I just have to go because the sponsors are there, but not to have a crazy time. I'm a normal person. I like to stay at home, watch a little TV if I can.More [03/17/2006 12:03:00]
I don't do normal things due to the travel, and the biggest sacrifice is being away from my family, ... but I wouldn't change anything in my life.More [03/22/2006 12:03:00]
I felt like I was kind of back living a normal lifestyle, just with a regular job of going to the studio every day. That really was a break for me, actually.More [03/22/2006 12:03:00]
I don't live a very posh life. There are no drivers waiting or people doing everything for me. I pretty much live like a normal person. . . . It's not good to have a life without responsibilities, you know ?More [03/22/2006 12:03:00]
We actually might get a lot of letters and phone calls from normal society.More [04/06/2006 12:04:00]
I think that's what [O'Donn-ell's] character grapples with and what [my character] represents to him. So I think, if anything, we might be making fun of normalcy. So we might get a lot of letters and phone calls from the normal society.More [04/06/2006 12:04:00]

For once I just wanted to be an average, normal guy, which is really what I am. It's like, very vulnerable. I saw the film and I was so naked. I'm just completely there. It's like there's nothing to hide behind, no mask.More [05/26/2006 12:05:00]
Playing a character who's dealing not only with a superpower but having a normal relationship is easy to associate with, because I feel that everyone has been through it.More [06/13/2006 12:06:00]
The character I got to play in Smallville was sort of like a duel character, I think sci-fi stuff just magnifies normal situations; it puts normal people in extreme situations, which I always find interesting. I've been lucky to have characters like that.More [06/13/2006 12:06:00]
“A lot of people have gotten into comedy because of certain influences in their lives or events that were painful, and I really have wracked my brain to figure it out. I pretty much have had a normal childhood. Maybe it was too normal.”More [07/11/2006 12:07:00]

“I don't have this fantasy about marriage anymore. Everyone says it takes hard work. Well, it kind of does - and I'm much more pragmatic about romance than I used to be. (With Scott) I wanted to see him as a white knight and was crushed whenever anything normal happened. I wanted to be the princess. Now I'm much more willing to see myself as human and flawed, and accept someone -the whole picture. My life is definitely changing for the better. I couldn't be happier or feel more comfortable with the direction it's going in,”More [09/12/2006 12:09:00]

“Actors have always done well playing the bad guys in movies. Audiences enjoy bad guys because through these characters, normal people are able to experience, vicariously, what its like to be vicious, nasty, and amoral. Kindness is not rewarded very much as far as drama is concerned.”More [10/24/2006 12:10:00]
Anyway, after the delivery your body comes back down and over a period of two weeks builds your progesterone back to normal levels. With PPD, your levels are very, very low and build up very slowly.More [11/07/2006 12:11:00]
When I first was nominated, I never expected to win, for the normal reasons. First, the picture was not released. Second, the people in my category were all in pictures that had opened, everybody knew them, they all received critical acclaim for the pictures. So there was no way I was going to win.More [11/07/2006 12:11:00]
