„At the first test I really started to go through a couple of names and I like the name Liz and Luscious Liz fits quite well, I think. It’s an attractive car, it’s quick and successful. But the main attribute naturally should be that she’s bloody quick.“
„People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.“
— Norman Vincent Peale American writer 1898 - 1993
Positive Thinking Every Day : An Inspiration for Each Day of the Year (1993), "April 13" Earlier variant: People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things.

You Can If You Think You Can (1987), p. 84
— Jane Austen, Mansfield Park
Said by Fanny Price in a 1999 adaptation of Mansfield Park. Actual quote: Dinner was soon followed by tea and coffee, a ten miles' drive home allowed no waste of hours; and from the time of their sitting down to table, it was a quick succession of busy nothings till the carriage came to the door, and Mrs. Norris, having fidgeted about, and obtained a few pheasants' eggs and a cream cheese from the housekeeper, and made abundance of civil speeches to Mrs. Rushworth, was ready to lead the way.

„People were dealing with CGI for the first time, so I think we were really unsure as to whether it would be a huge success or a big flop. … I thought the scripts were so good. It had a kind of domestic element which I'm not sure it ever had before. I think we were feeling quite confident about that. … In terms of whether it had a place in the world when it aired, I think everyone was quite unsure. I didn't know until it aired and people really seemed to like it.“
