Pakistan's future viability, stability and security lie in empowering its people and building political institutions. My goal is to prove that the fundamental battle for the hearts and minds of a generation can be accomplished only under democracy.
I found that a whole series of people opposed me simply on the grounds that I was a woman. The clerics took to the mosque saying that Pakistan had thrown itself outside the Muslim world and the Muslim umar by voting for a woman, that a woman had usurped a man's place in the Islamic society.
My father was the Prime Minister of Pakistan. My grandfather had been in politics, too; however, my own inclination was for a job other than politics. I wanted to be a diplomat, perhaps do some journalism - certainly not politics.
Extremism can flourish only in an environment where basic governmental social responsibility for the welfare of the people is neglected. Political dictatorship and social hopelessness create the desperation that fuels religious extremism.
Military dictatorship is born from the power of the gun, and so it undermines the concept of the rule of law and gives birth to a culture of might, a culture of weapons, violence and intolerance.

I don't have any problem doing anything. The secret is I have no shame.
I think there's a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down.
I had to be physically and emotionally naked, show both my body and soul. I felt emotionally vulnerable and physically exposed, it was a hard choice to make but I was intrigued since the beginning. I think that...the things that scare you the most are the ones you gotta do.
I love that I'm alone all the time. I love sleeping next to no one. I really don't like solitude.
I was attracted to the positive outlook on women especially exploring relationships with different people and being confident and comfortable and strong. That was the kind of thing that was appealing to me, because that's what's real, and that's honest, and it's nothing to be ashamed of. That's what single women do.
I don't think it's something you can be prepared for. I'm just going with the flow.
Being single also sucks sometimes because you're single.
I felt so much when I was fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, I felt everything. I didn't understand [myself], I was so happy yet so angry and sad. That was the point when I realized that I needed to tell stories and make characters come alive and I needed to make people cry, and make people angry, and make people happy, and make them laugh.
I think the sexiest thing is a hat. It's very sexy!
I avoid social networks and I try to live a very normal, simple life. I love spending time and hang out with my friends any time I can. I like a very simple life.
Some people will like it [Fifty Shades of Grey] and some won't. I have other movies coming up, this is not what my whole life turns around.
I think people, especially the press, like to pick on children of famous people and I think that's f*cking awful. Things get made up. It's so, so sad. And there's absolutely nothing you can do about it as a 16-year-old. You're like, Why? What did I do?
There are some days when I can do my thing and be in the world and walk around, and it's fine. And then there are other days where it's totally not fine, and I want to crawl into a hole and die. And it's the most invasive and worst.
If it doesn't have sex scenes in it, I won't do it.
I still feel like I don't know what I'm doing. Like, I'm unsure of what my life will be like. I mean, I have such an obsession with making movies that I probably will always do that. But sometimes my life can feel so suffocating, and then it can feel so massive, like I don't have a handle on it at all, and I don't know where it's going or what I'm going to do. Right now, I'm known for making movies. And I wonder if that's it. I don't know. It doesn't feel like it to me.
I love doing improv. I love comedy. I have always felt this way, even when I was really young.
I've only been in long-term relationships. I've never really dated myself.
It depends on the story and the filmmaker. And it depends on the character, and the heart and soul of the person that I see on the page, and if it resonates with something that I think I can summon in myself.
When I did 'The Social Network,' David Fincher told me that I managed to make a thankless character pretty awesome. I thought that was really cool because I think he's really cool.
Sex scenes are always a little uncomfortable at first.
It seems like the world is so fast to move its interest to someone else. When I think about filmmakers and actresses that I have admired my whole life, I've admired their entire body of work. I have admired what they began with and what they're doing now. And now I feel like there's such a weird pressure to find the new face. I don't get it at all. I want to see women evolve. I want to see a body of work. I want to see all of it.
Stop the war! Admit that this is a war against an entire nation and stop it!

Könnte es sein, dass Russen einfach keine Freiheit brauchen? Dass andere Menschen sie brauchen, aber Russen nicht?
Heute spricht man nicht mehr von Helden. Aber für mich war Nawalny ein Held. Durch seinen Widerstand hat er früh der Welt klar gemacht, dass Putin ein rücksichtsloser Verbrecher im Amt ist. Man hätte viel früher seiner Warnung folgen müssen.
Karl Lauterbach - Februar 2024
Alexej Nawalny hat für ein demokratisches Russland gekämpft. Putin hat ihn dafür zu Tode gequält. Das ist ein neuer, erschütternder Beleg für den verbrecherischen Charakter dieses Regimes. Alexej wird über seinen Tod hinaus allen weiter Hoffnung geben, die für ein anderes Russland kämpfen.
Christian Lindner - Februar 2024
Was für ein mörderisches System. Nawalny war Putins Angstgegner. Er stand für ein Russland, in dem Meinungen frei und Wahlen fair sind.
Katrin Göring-Eckardt - Februar 2024

For a woman to be able to dominate and also be feminine and soft, that's a talent. And its not all about appearance. A woman who has a brain, who is street-smart and book-smart, that woman is very, very sexy to me.

The first time I got a chance to meet Michael was onstage at Madison Square Garden. There were tons of people on the stage, and I just remember losing my mind. Like, Oh my God, that's Michael Jackson right there. I was just over his right shoulder. And then when I finally got a chance to get on the stage with him, I was just shut down. He had the type of magic that you just bowed to. I just said, "I love you, and I know you've heard it a million and one times from fans all over the world, but you've meant so much to me as an entertainer, and I love you, and I've admired you all these years.
