Marlo Thomas quotes

I realize now that I was a feminist and the minute I heard the word I certainly knew it meant me, but at that time I don't think we had the label yet. But there's no doubt about it that I was born a feminist.

Living with these teenage boys allowed me to see how much their psyches were like their girl counterparts. They were more familiar to me than I would have thought.

My father said there were two kinds of people in the world: givers and takers. The takers may eat better, but the givers sleep better.

I think loss of loved ones is the hardest blow in life.

In that I found being able to talk to my family about my feelings, praying for strength and realizing that our lives have a deep purpose and the journey of our lives is to find out what that is and express it, was the only way I could have gotten through it.

I don't think homosexuality is a choice. Society forces you to think it's a choice, but in fact, it's in one's nature. The choice is whether one expresses one's nature truthfully or spends the rest of one's life lying about it.

When I was growing up, my mother was always a friend to my siblings and me (in addition to being all the other things a mom is), and I was always grateful for that because I knew she was someone I could talk to and joke with, and argue with and that nothing would ever harm that friendship.

My mother was a strong-willed and opinionated woman - a Sicilian! - and if she didn't like something, she'd let you know about it. So her undying support of her kids went a long way in proving to us that we were on the right path.

Never face facts; if you do you'll never get up in the morning.

Fame lost its appeal for me when I went into a public restroom and an autograph seeker handed me a pen and paper under the stall door.

I know George Burns was a very happy man.

In my work, there's a tremendous amount of rejection and waves of fertile and fallow times.

Losing my parents was probably the hardest and deepest blow from which I've had to recover.

Nothing is either all masculine or all feminine except having sex.

The Golden Girls certainly proved that there was a large audience for a show about older women.
