Quotes:

Women have conquered the world. And with everything we go through, it's about time we had a female president.

I'm 50-50 on glamour stuff. I'd rather put on a pair of jeans and get on my Harley and act like a guy.

Looks alone won't get you that far. It may get you in the door, but that’s it.

I've always said that I worry about being with a man who doesn't flirt.

I don't believe in charmed lives. I think that tragedy is part of the lesson you learn to lift yourself up, to pick yourself up and to move on.
