Emma Thompson

Alan Freed
Nothing out of the ordinary ever occurs to me when I’m by myself. But you attract duels, ambushes, immortal enemies, obscure creatures such as the Ra’zac, long-lost family members, and mysterious acts of magic as if they were were starving weasels and you were a rabbit that wandered into their den.

James Avery
The Cold War’s end pushed disarmament down most leaders’ agendas. It’s a sophisticated issue, which I think is one reason why it is not so hands-on to many people. It’s not visceral. It’s not like a starving child.

I did a very stupid diet where you have three food groups, and you never eat them together. It’s so bloody tedious; I’m losing the will to live just describing it.

Ben Miller

One man starving puts a crimp in my evening.

In my research, I learned that the Boxers’ kung fu wasn’t all that formalized. The vast majority of them didn’t belong to some age-old martial arts tradition.

Mike Huckabee
It’s to the Capitol’s advantage to have us divided among ourselves. Another tool to cause misery in our district. A way to plant hatred between the starving workers [of the Seam] and those who can generally count on supper and thereby ensure we will never trust one another.
Suzanne Collins
In a safe Western world where we’re not being shot at and we’re not starving, the worst thing that happens to us most days is someone’s rude to us, or we accidentally insult someone.

I think that if I ever have kids, and they are upset, I won’t tell them that people are starving in China or anything like that because it wouldn’t change the fact that they were upset. And even if somebody else has it much worse, that doesn’t really change the fact that you have what you have.

to feed our starving, to clothe our
ragged, to do all good things,
knowing that we are more than
keepers of our brothers and sisters.
We are our brothers and sisters

We are so addicted, either to materialism or to transcending material reality, that we don’t see God right in front of us, in the beggar, the starving child, the brokenhearted woman; in our friend; in the cat; in the flea. We miss it, and in missing it, we allow the world to be destroyed.
Andrew Harvey

Angela Bassett
In a way women are fleshier because of estrogen. It’s hard for us to lose weight because when we get super skinny we don’t ovulate. Women in camps during the Holocaust didn’t menstruate and didn’t ovulate. They were starving; they were terrified. Why emulate that condition? It’s nonsensical to me.
Erica Jong

Louis Farrakhan
Always remember, everyone is hungry for praise and starving for honest appreciation.

Fannie Lou Hamer
Most single moms are very poor, uneducated, can’t get a job, and if it weren’t for government assistance, their kids would be starving to death and never have health care. And that’s the story that we’re not seeing, and it’s unfortunate that we glorify and glamorize the idea of out of children wedlock.
Mike Huckabee
Models should just be beautiful women who inspire others. They won’t be starving themselves because they are being accepted for themselves. Any thinner than today’s ideals would be impossible. Any thinner means dead.
Crystal Renn
In ‘The Hunger Games,’ in most people’s idea, in terms of rebellion or a civil-war situation, that would meet the criteria for a necessary war. These people are oppressed, their children are being taken off and put in gladiator games. They’re impoverished, they’re starving, they’re brutalized.

Nina Dobrev
My body started to shut down. I got really, really ill. When you’re starving yourself, you can’t concentrate. I was like a walking zombie, like the walking dead. I was just consumed with what I would eat, what I wouldn’t eat.

Caroline Knapp
Anorexia taught me to love life and to realise that starving yourself to death is a bloody waste of time. It’s awful and it hurts so many people around you. It’s a terribly selfish thing to do.

Raegan Butcher
By default I am the good parent. I’ve used my own personal experience. I came from a world where I was in need and starving for the good parent, so it’s like I’m bringing my own persona issues into that. I am the parent that I always wanted to have; that’s how I look at my role.

Our power knows no limits, yet we cannot find food for a starving child, or a home for a refugee. Our knowledge is without measure and we build the weapons that will destroy us.

Since we were kids, we grow up believing that astronauts are heroes – that to go up in a rocket is a heroic thing. These guys are bigger than movie stars.

Oh Lord, are there really people starving still?
Jackson Browne
We ran up to them and they gave us hugs, cookies and chocolate. Being so alone, a hug meant more than anybody could imagine because that replaced the human warmth that we were starving for.

There are more obese people in the world than starving people. As China and India start to develop our eating habits – and not by accident but because agribusiness is going over there and imposing our habits on them – if the population doesn’t increase at all, we’ll have to raise twice as many animals as we do.
Jonathan Safran Foer
I was planning on being a starving artist.
Stephen Hillenburg
I started very young to model in Paris when I was 18, I remember like starving myself to fit into the clothes and it was an amazing experience but you know I did shows for Valentino, Chanel, so it was really prestigious.
Victoria Silvstedt
Man is more miserable, more restless and unsatisfied than ever before, simply because half his nature–the spiritual–is starving for true food, and the other half–the material–is fed with bad food.
Paul Brunton
We probably looked like starving orphan children. Hey! We were starving orphan children.
James Patterson
I love meat – I’m Cuban; I grew up eating meat, platanos, and arroz con pollo. I don’t believe in starving yourself, but sometimes I do cleanses and diets to prepare for a role.
Natalie Martinez
The plain fact is that we are starving people, not deliberately in the sense that we want them to die, but wilfully in the sense that we prefer their death to our own inconvenience.
Victor Gollancz
Farmers in America … are pretty large in general. Their farms are also large. But farmers in the rest of the world are quite skinny, and that’s because they’re starving.
Ellen Gustafson
Eating at regular intervals in small amounts and not starving yourself is the key to maintaining your figures.
Krystle D’Souza
But while they prate of economic laws, men and women are starving. We must lay hold of the fact that economic laws are not made by nature. They are made by human beings.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Hunger hurts, but starving works, when it costs too much to love.
Fiona Apple
Consider Ireland…. You have a starving population, an absentee aristocracy, and an alien Church, and in addition the weakest executive in the world. That is the Irish Question.
Benjamin Disraeli
When the end comes, dark and hungry I’ll be alone, love When the end comes, black and starving I’ll say good-bye, love.-from Golden Tongue: The Poems of Steven Slaughter
Maggie Stiefvater
In real life I’m bone dry and when I play I’m a mango and in sex I’m starving to be a dripping mango
Tori Amos
I don’t know how your theology works, but if Jesus has a choice between stained glass windows and feeding starving kids in Haiti, I have a feeling he’d choose the starving kids in Haiti.
Tony Campolo
The kingdom of heaven is comprised of the broken, the fatherless, the poor, the starving. Nothing that could create good ratings for NBC.
Jon Foreman
If you looked at my resume in the years leading up to Flickr, I worked in a dive shop in landlocked Arkansas; I was a starving artist. I just arrived at the thing I love to do accidentally.
Caterina Fake
Oh yes, after the war, and we were all starving – we had no proper food or anything – no proper shoes.
Ninette de Valois
A man doesn’t say I will starve myself to death to keep from starving, or that he’d spend all of his money to save money. Why should he be willing to die for the privilege of living?
Dalton Trumbo
I never again want to see the face of a starving child or hear the weeping of a mother who has lost her son to war. Peace, this is what my husband gave his life for, and I want the world to know that he did not die in vain. Peace, this is what will make me very happy.
Jehan Sadat
I am going to fight capitalism even if it kills me. It is wrong that people like you should be comfortable and well fed while all around you people are starving.
Sylvia Pankhurst
You don’t get the attention of gluttons by starving anorexics.
Paul McCulley
In our racist, sexist society, Christmas is the eight hours when we stop killing each other and gratuitous overeating is encouraged so that the starving and other people in the world can die!
Lloyd Kaufman
There’s always got to be room for what you might call benign corruption. Nobody blames a man who steals food to feed his starving children, but on the other hand, somebody who picks up a badge and takes an oath to serve and protect; we do expect a certain level of essential honesty.
Denzel Washington
The niceties of existence were not a matter of concern, yet everything around was closed down most of the time. If you lived in a middle-class community in Chicago, children and adults came daily to the door saying, ‘We are starving, how about a potato?’ I speak from poignant memory.
Paul Samuelson
I would be on the ‘anti-reality’ show. I can’t stand reality TV. I can tell you one that I absolutely would not be on, and that’s ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ If you ever see me on that show, just please understand my family is starving to death, and things are really bad in the Church household.
Eric Church
It’s unfair how the kids who are starving for attention tended to be so annoying that people had no inclination to give it to them.
Lauren Myracle
Grain that is used to feed animals that end up on our tables as turkeys and hams could have gone to feed starving people.

To a starving man, God can only appear in the form of bread.
Mahatma Gandhi
Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death.
Jerome Lawrence
Pritkin kissed like he did everything else, straightforward, accepting no prisoners and with an intensity that left me breathless. It was hot and hard and desperate, like he was starving for it, and I opened my mouth and took it, because, God.
Karen Chance
Men can starve from a lack of self-realization as much as they can from a lack of bread.
Richard Wright
When I went traveling, I was sleeping on the beach. Sometimes I was starving. I used to dream of eating a meat pie from the chippy.
Bez
Anger as soon as fed is dead- ‘Tis starving makes it fat.
Emily Dickinson
Even St. Teresa said, “I can pray better when I’m comfortable,” and she refused to wear her haircloth shirt or starve herself. I don’t think living in cellars and starving is better for an artist than it is for anybody else.
Katherine Anne Porter
We had to leave Norway and go where it was all happening, which was London. We loved it there, but it was hard. We had no money – we were literally starving. It started to get ugly.
Morten Harket
Images of burning Red Cross and UN buildings struck by US bombs contrasted with images of thousands of desperately poor Afghan women carrying sickly and starving children out of Afghanistan as they flee the might of the US military is tearing at international public confidence in our war against terrorism.
Cynthia McKinney
I’m dying to do a Sam Shepard play. ‘Curse of the Starving Class,’ ‘Buried Child,’ ‘True West,’ ‘Cowboy Mouth,’ ‘Fool for Love’ – I’ll do any of them.
Steve Kazee
People are overweight and starving at the same time. It’s a tragedy for both the individual and society.
Kimbal Musk
The world is starving for new ideas and great leaders who will champion those ideas.
Lisa Su
But I have been in some very beautiful churches, then I’ve looked outside and seen people starving to death.
Captain Beefheart
Recent research shows that many children without enough to eat wind up with diminished capacity to understand and learn (“cognitive impairment” ). Children don’t have to be starving for this to happen. Even mild undernourishment — the kind most common among poor people in America — can do it.
Carl Sagan
The reader feels as if he is in Chongjin, where starving people ate the bark off trees; or atop Mount Taesong with the elite of Pyongyang, whose existence is a mix of sadism and whimsy; or with the masses who are bombarded day and night with the propaganda of North Korea’s alternate reality.
Adam Johnson
When I was growing up, my parents told me, ‘Finish your dinner. People in China and India are starving.’ I tell my daughters, ‘Finish your homework. People in India and China are starving for your job.’
Thomas Friedman
I have seen children starving. I have seen the agony of mothers and wives. I hate war.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
If you followed the media you’d think that everybody in Africa was starving to death, and that’s not the case; so it’s important to engage with the other Africa.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
I don’t want to give people the wrong advice to follow their dreams no matter what, because it’s not fun to be a starving artist. But on the other hand, life is short, and if you are burning with a passion to do something, then do it. Work hard, study hard at it, and don’t give up.
Marjorie Liu
To be a working actor in England is a life. I think it’s harder in this country. Either you are a superstar or a starving actor.
Rebecca Eaton
When I moved from Boston to L.A., I floundered. I definitely did time at the Improv and the Comedy Store, making 20 bucks a night. I learned how to be a starving comic. I was an in-debt comic: I ate well on loan.
John Pinette
When you’re a failure in Hollywood, that’s like starving to death outside a banquet hall, with smells of filet mignon driving you crazy.
Marilyn Monroe
When we say, ‘We are starving,’ we have to remember that there are people who are literally starving. If everyone fed one person, one meal, we could make a huge difference.
Tina Knowles
He has more of a right to ask us why so many people are starving [than we do to ask Him].В  As much as we want God to explain himself to us, His creation, we are in no place to demand that He give an account to us.
Francis Chan
It’s amazing to come here. I’m so happy that UFC is finally here. We’ve been starving for it in Cleveland.
Stipe Miocic
The choice between starving and being eaten is an exotic one.
Francine du Plessix Gray
Reciting part of a sutra with the desire to benefit others is like reciting a recipe in the hope it will prevent people from starving.
Bassui Tokusho
My major problem with the world is a problem of scarcity in the midst of plenty … of people starving while there are unused resources … people having skills which are not being used.
Milton Friedman
I see the author as the person who has written; the writer, the one involved in the process of writing. And they’re not necessarily friends. The writer is the one I want to reinforce; the author would just feed on the reviews – so I’m in favour of starving him.
Edward St Aubyn
I run like an electric golf cart. Now I look at eating as a way to feed my body and keep me younger. It’s not about starving your body, but treating your body like a Ferrari. You don’t put in the crappiest gas you can find. You use supreme. In the long term, you’ll run clean.
Carol Alt
I’ve got beautiful reviews for all my books, and I’m very well thought of in the tiny circles that know me, but I’m really starving.
Leonard Cohen
It makes me so angry – there’s enough food in the world but people are starving. It’s all political.
Judith Light
In our racist, sexist society, Christmas is the 8 hours when we stop killing each other and gratutious over eating is encouraged so that the starving and other people in the world can die!
Lloyd Kaufman
Of course, with well-masticated food playing the role of social glue, it’s absolutely essential that everyone clear their plate. Sod the starving kiddies in Africa – it’s the overfed ones here we need to worry about.
Will Self
If it were not for the intellectual snobs who pay – in solid cash – the arts would perish with their starving practitioners. Let us thank heaven for hypocrisy.
Aldous Huxley
I grew up thinking I was going to change the world, but not because I was treated like a special snowflake. It’s a silly label. People are starving. We need to feed them. That’s the end of the conversation.
Rupi Kaur
You hurt her by starving yourself, you hurt her with your lies, and by fighting everybody who tries to help you. Emma can only sleep a couple of hours a night now. She’s haunted by nightmares of monsters that eat our whole family. They eat us slowly, she says, so we can feel their sharp teeth.
Laurie Halse Anderson
Taxi September along Jessore Road Oxcart skeletons drag charcoal load past watery fields thru rain flood ruts Dung cakes on treetrunks, plastic-roof huts Wet processions Families walk Stunted boys big heads don’t talk Look bony skulls & silent round eyes Starving black angels in human disguise.
Allen Ginsberg
America is an enormous frosted cupcake in the middle of millions of starving people.
Gloria Steinem
It’s unconscionable to breed with the number of children who are starving to death in impoverished countries.
Ashley Judd
The hunger of the spirit for eternity – as fierce as a starving man’s for bread – is much less a craving to go on living than a craving for redemption. Oh, and a protest against absurdity.
Storm Jameson
With a small fraction of the hundreds of billions of dollars spent on the Iraq war, the US and Australia could ensure every starving, sunken-eyed child on the planet could be well fed, have clean water and sanitation and a local school to go to.
Bob Brown
Most actors are starving. Most of us are walking around with a flashlight and tweezers looking for evidence. When you have someone that actually writes an acting role, it’s rare.
Dylan McDermott
Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death.
Rosalind Russell
The meager satisfaction that man can extract from reality leaves him starving.
Sigmund Freud
The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ has the nourishing power to heal starving spirits of the world.
Boyd K. Packer
Comedy comes from a place of hurt. Charlie Chaplin was starving and broke in London, and that’s where he got his character ‘the tramp’ from. It’s a bad situation that he transformed into comedic one.
Chris Tucker
And so I was doing that and starving and somebody said you should model and I ran when they told me how much money you could make and I did a television commercial the first job.
Sela Ward
Most women are starving to receive something from a man that they need to give to themselves.

The farther a man follows the rainbow, the harder it is for him to get back to the life which he left starving like an old dog.
Jane Bowles
When I was a kid, my mother used to feed me mashed-potato sandwiches, brussel sprout sandwiches; my brain cells were starving from lack of food. I’ll eat anything. I’ll eat dirt.
Sylvester Stallone
I think it’s quite difficult to understand what kind of life a writer leads. They might be millionaires, or they might be starving people.
Kazuo Ishiguro
Paris is the only city in the world where starving to death is still considered an art.
Carlos Ruiz Zafon
It’s difficult to believe that people are still starving in this country because food isn’t available.
Ronald Reagan
In the end, I have a nice house and groovy cars, and so do my bandmates. It’s not like they’re starving.
John Densmore
People get numbed when they see picture after picture, year in and year out, of people starving.
Iman
we often observe that there is abundance of capital to be had at low rates of interest, while there are also large numbers of artisans starving for want of employment.
William Stanley Jevons
For me, I’m not in an industry where I’m starving.
Jessica Chastain
I didn’t really go the starving-artist route. I kind of went and did massive, commercial things.
Ashton Kutcher
Kids don’t seem to recognize when they’re hungry until they’re starving and in the emergency zone, so I’m like, “Who wants some apple slices and cheese?”
Julie Bowen
I do not believe in starving myself.
Urvashi Rautela
Most single moms are very poor, uneducated, can’t get a job. And if it weren’t for government assistance, their kids would be starving to death and never have health care. And that’s the story that we’re not seeing. And it’s unfortunate that we glorify and glamorize the idea of out of children wedlock.
Anna Holmes
Once over there [Balkans], I felt extremely patriotic. Here are these people, from 18-year-olds to military veterans, enduring real duress for the cause of peace. I don’t ever want to play for a regular audience again, only military folks who are starving for music.
Sheryl Crow
If pornography releases sexual tension, why don’t we send recipe books to the starving?
Andrea Dworkin
Now that judges embrace forcibly starving someone to death, Congress should use its appropriation power to starve the judicial budget.
Phyllis Schlafly
People who lean on logic and philosophy and rational exposition end by starving the best part of the mind.
William Butler Yeats
I’ve had dates at the nicest restaurants, but when you leave, you’re starving, and the best part of the date is having a slice of pizza and a couple of drinks on the way home. I think it’s important to be able to roll with the punches and enjoy every minute of it.
Meghan Markle
Given the ease with which health infuses life with meaning and purpose, it is shocking how swiftly illness steals away those certainties… Time unused and only endured still vanishes, as if time itself is starving, and each day is swallowed whole, leaving no crumbs, no memory, no trace at all.
Elisabeth Tova Bailey
Many people in the world today are not starving because there is an inherent inability to produce food, they are starving because they are caught in the middle of political fights and blockades that have been used as weapons.
Ralph Merkle
I run like an electric golf cart. Now I look at eating as a way to feed my body and keep me younger. It’s not about starving your body, but treating your body like a Ferrari. You don’t put in the crappiest gas you can find. You use supreme. In the long term, you’ll run clean

We need the church as urgently as a starving baby needs his mother’s milk.
