I don't think it's too hippie to want to clean up the planet so you don't wind up dying of some kind of cancer when you're 45 years old. It enrages me that these big cancer-research organizations can't be bothered to man the front lines of environmental protest.

10 QUOTES WITH «IT'S»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word it's.
1
Dianna Agron
I think it's important to keep your personal life to yourself as much as you can. It protects your sanity and you need to have boundaries. And it helps that enchantment of watching an actor. If you know someone's favourite colour or what they like to do on a Sunday, you won't fall for the character as much.
2
Damon Albarn
The cartoon is a metaphor really for the fact that it's almost impossible in our celebrity obsessed culture to move around genres and sort of change you ideas, change your face, you know?
3
Jennifer Aniston
I think it's important to have closure in any relationship that ends - from a romantic relationship to a friendship. You should always have a sense of clarity at the end and know why it began and why it ended. You need that in your life to move cleanly into your next phase.
4
Tom Araya

5
Anne Archer
Communication is very important. And the arts do that, whether it's film or theater.

It's bad to be labeled just another singer-songwriter.

Tom Brokaw
