If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one. -  Mother Teresa

We are all different people. It is up to us to make that difference work, otherwise everything fails. -  John Tinniswood

I think the biggest political force on the planet today is ‘threatened patriarchy’. This has intrigued me for a long time. In cinema, we are seeing the rise of some tropes: the worship of the dictatorial father figure, the omnipotent superhero or the extremely rich and violent man who will save society and the common man. All of these things are happening because men are vulnerable and threatened and are using the levers of power to push back. We are living amidst the last scream of the scared male. -  Dibakar Banerjee

Because they have been enjoying unquestioned privileges for the last 6000 to 7000 years. All the organized religions in the world have catered to them. Now, after the labour movement and the feminist movement, it’s time for the feudal male to feel afraid. Their thousand-year-old habits are being questioned by centuries-old movements. It’s new for them. -  Dibakar Banerjee

If you’re in a relationship, I strongly recommend that you LIVE TOGETHER before getting married! This is the same advice I’ve always given my sons, both of whom have had, or are in, a live-in relationship. It just seems logical to me that before two people get their families and the government involved in their equation, they first put their relationship to the ultimate test. -  Zeenat Aman

I always feel that if I say certain things, I might go to jail, or I will be fined, or my film will get stuck at the censors, or somebody will set fire to my house, or will shoot me, or will file a case against me. -  Dibakar Banerjee

You absolutely HAVE to become ok with not being liked. No matter how loving or kind you are, you will never people please your way into collective acceptance. You could be a whole ray of sunshine and people will hate you cuz they’re used to rain. Be ok with shining regardless. -  Karan Johar

It’s easy to be the best version of yourself for a few hours a day. But can you share a bathroom? Weather the storm of a bad mood? Agree on what to eat for dinner every night? Keep the fire alive in the bedroom? Work through the million tiny conflicts that inevitably arise between two people in close proximity? In short - are you actually compatible? -  Zeenat Aman

I’m aware that Indian society is a little uptight about “living in sin” but then again, society is uptight about so many things! Log kya kahenge? (What will people say?) -  Zeenat Aman

If girls adopt the live-in culture, marriage as an institution will become obsolete. Tell me honestly, would you marry your son to a girl whom you know to have been in a live-in relationship? -  Mumtaz Madhvani

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. I’ve never been one to comment on others' personal lives or tear down my colleagues, and I’m not going to start now. -  Zeenat Aman

What is the need to tie yourself down in this day and age? Why marry? For children? Arrey, go out there, find the man who appeals to you, and get his baby without physical intimacy. -  Mumtaz Madhvani

I don’t read anything written about me. That’s one of my coping mechanisms. -  Mariah Carey

Having a tool like social media does two things. Firstly, it makes you perform all the time. You become an actor in your own life. The second thing is, you start escaping your real life and keep running towards your virtual life because that gives instant gratification. I have seen videos of influencers waking up in the morning, brushing their teeth and getting ready. Their lives are just narratives, being dished out for their audiences to consume. -  Dibakar Banerjee

Some tortures are physical and some are mental. But the one that is both is dental. -  Ogden Nash

Parkinson's may not kill you but it will make you wish you hadn't been born. -  Jeremy Paxman

The wisdom of the wise and the experience of the ages are perpetuated by quotations. -  Benjamin Disraeli

The vigor of the soul is sophrosyne, the light of a soul free of disturbing passions. -  Demophilus

Sophrosyne controls our penchant for concupiscence. -  Plato


Hope is the only good god remaining among mankind;
The others have left and gone to Olympus.
Trust, a mighty god has gone, Sophrosyne has gone from men;
And the Graces, my friend, have abandoned the earth.
— Theognis of Megara (6th-century BCE)
