„We five women were fortunate to have the choice, not just the opportunity but the choice, to play such rich, complex female characters.“

—  Frances McDormand American actress 1957
Context: It is impossible to maintain one's composure in this situation. What am I doing here? — especially considering the extraordinary group of women with whom I was nominated. We five women were fortunate to have the choice, not just the opportunity but the choice, to play such rich, complex female characters. And I congratulate producers like Working Title and Polygram for allowing directors to make autonomous casting decisions based on qualifications and not just market value. And I encourage writers and directors to keep these really interesting female roles coming — and while you're at it you can throw in a few for the men as well.

„I believe optimism is a choice. Cynicism isn't smarter, it's just safer.“

—  Jewel American singer-songwriter, guitarist, producer, actress, and poet 1974
Context: I kept getting typified as this Pollyanna neohippie. I think it's because I have a different definition of optimism. I've noticed a belief that somehow optimism lacks intelligence and that optimism stems from a lack of experience and naiveté. I don't believe that. I believe optimism is a choice. Cynicism isn't smarter, it's just safer. Interview https://www.rollingstone.com/music/features/jewel-19981224 with Neil Strauss in Rolling Stone (24 December 1998)
