Sarah Knowles Bolton quotes

  • Make no mistake about it, you are dumb. You're a group of incredibly, well-educated dumb people. I was there. We all were there. You're barely functional.

  • If you don't have a vision for the future, then your future is threatened to be a repeat of the past.

  • Through all the relationship stuff I've gone through in the past few years, I know there are fundamental differences in how men and women view sex and how they view their futures.

  • The one word you should forget when you start a new project is the word 'I' - you need to replace that word 'I' with the idea of 'everybody else.

  • What part of our history's reinvented and under rug swept? What part of your memory is selective and tends to forget?
