The White Company offers its loyalists an altogether better, whiter world. The White people have edited out any colours that aren’t white, off-white, milk chocolate, grey, taupe or black.

You don’t want to inhibit cell division. You want to inhibit cell division in the cancer cells, and even that is not really where you want to do it.

People who cease to believe in God or goodness altogether still believe in the devil. I don’t know why. No, I do indeed know why. Evil is always possible. And goodness is eternally difficult.

Positive, healthy, loving relationships in your twenties… I don’t know if anyone would disagree with it: I think they’re the exception, not the norm.

Sometimes in international politics, the better part of wisdom is to defer dangers rather than try to eliminate them altogether instantly.

Kenichi Fukui
Before I was cast on ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,’ I had secretly quit Erika Jayne altogether.

Ninette de Valois
Nuclear proliferation – the proliferation of WMDs altogether – is one of the greatest dangers of our time.
