Mothers subject their daughters to a level of scrutiny people usually reserve for themselves. A mother’s gaze is like a magnifying glass held between the sun’s rays and kindling. It concentrates the rays of imperfection on her daughter’s yearning for approval. The result can be a conflagration – whoosh.

I don’t like putting the female form behind glass or on a wall, further objectifying it as much as art does.
On the last day of my teaching career, I was sitting in my apartment, having a glass of wine, thinking I’m glad I did it, that I had been somehow useful, that I had learned something.
The analysis of concepts is for the understanding nothing more than what the magnifying glass is for sight.
I stopped and gazed on the little dull man who was being paid to be a teacher of teachers. I turned and walked to the door, slammed it closed with a bang, and broken glass crashed to the floor. There was uproar behind me in the class, which did not interest me at all.
The best advice I can give women at all levels is increase training. There are still areas where we have to break through that glass ceiling.
I think we’ve broken a lot of barriers and kind of shattered our glass ceiling that was there for women. There are so many great fighters, and we’ve proved a lot of people wrong. A lot of the times, our fights are the best fights on the card.
I like to describe my characters as though they were all trapped in a glass box.
At my lemonade stand I used to give the first glass away free and charge five dollars for the second glass. The refill contained the antidote.
As a screenwriter and a half-Jew, I tend to look at the glass half-empty.
My understanding of romance novels was that it was on the beach with a glass of rose.
I wake up every morning and I feel like I’m juggling glass balls. I live in Los Angeles, my business is run out of London, and most evenings I’m cuddled up in front of Skype, in my dressing gown, speaking with my studio in London. I travel a lot, my team travel a lot, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
In my new IFC comedy game show, ‘Bunk,’ we actually use our intern Patrick as a human timer – giving contestants the time it takes for him to wade through a bag of broken glass for a razor blade, to get gum out of his hair, to pick up every strand from a box of spaghetti I spill on the floor, etc, etc.
I don’t stuff myself at breakfast and prefer to have a glass of milk and fruit for breakfast. I prefer a home-made vegetarian lunch otherwise.
The way they were writing Christine as this older woman who got married, which she shouldn’t have. Obviously got divorced right away. Reached the glass ceiling in the police precinct. So there is a part of her that died because she knows she couldn’t go any farther.
Too much of our media, and not just sports media, but media, in general, is one where the people with the voices live in glass houses.
Glass really rewards risk. A lot of times with glass, you’re just waiting for the piece to cool down or for some temperature to adjust, and there’s split seconds where you’ve got a fraction of a second where you get to make a move a particular way, and you don’t get to repeat it if you do it wrong.
My father once said, ‘If you’re in the desert and you’re dying of thirst, are you going to drink a glass of blood or are you going to drink a glass of water?’ I think what he was trying to say, interesting coming from my blood father, is sometimes there are people in your family that can be toxic.
I got up and saw my face in the mirror and saw the horror. When they did the surgery on me, they took out 67 glass pieces. There were a lot of movies that I had lined up for myself during that time, and I had to let it go. I didn’t want people to know because, at that time, people were not that supportive.
I don’t go out. I don’t go to clubs. It’s not my thing. I sit at home with my glass of wine and watch hours of reality TV. I have a million shows on my TiVo.
I prefer to drink two glasses of water and then a nice hot cup of tea. My favourite tea is a mixture of Darjeeling tea. My breakfast consists of a glass of fresh orange juice and a slice of toast.
I need specifically love, affection, people to touch me all the time. Because otherwise, I don’t really – I don’t cope very well. On ‘Morgan,’ everything is shot from the other side of the glass, so I was alone in a soundproof room watching everybody but being completely separate from whatever was going on.
Call things by their right names – Glass of brandy and water! That is the current, but not the appropriate name; ask for a glass of liquid fire and distilled damnation.
My studio cube is an experiment in solar heating and design. The south wall is covered with glass planks that collect and distribute heat naturally to my work studio on the second level.
I’ve often said that all poetry is political. This is because real poems deal with a human response to reality and politics is part of reality, history in the making. Even if a poet writes about sitting in a glass house drinking tea, it reflects politics.
I promised to always bring up a glass of water to her before we go to bed, and she promised to never let me dress myself.
I never perceived being adopted as the glass being half-empty.
I love any type of cheese, preferably on a large board with a glass of Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
No phone, a movie, a glass of wine, and some salad. Perfect!
This celebration here tells me that this work is not hopeless. I thank you for this teaching with all my heart and lift my glass to human solidarity, to the ultimate victory of knowledge, peace, good-will and understanding.
The way I like to cook is to have music going, usually jazz, and something in my hand, usually a glass of wine.
The Glass Key is better than anything Hemingway ever wrote.
I think glass has so many different forms. Sometimes it comes off as something so breakable and fragile, but it’s amazingly strong. It starts as sand, and it takes on different lives, but it is breakable.
I make a concerted effort to go watch the sunset a few days a week, have a glass of wine, and take a moment to feel fortunate and grateful for the view and for my life.
I believe women still face a glass ceiling that must be shattered.
I have a glass of wine. Red. Generally when I’m cooking.
I’m an entrepreneur, so I’ve got to be ruthless about ‘me’ time if I want to have any left to myself! I make myself leave the office by 8 or 9 P.M. most nights, even if I do curl up with my laptop and a glass of wine at home to get through email.
I like the fact that glass ceilings are breaking all over.
Pirlo is a cool customer who does things in his own time. On the pitch, he just looks so relaxed, no matter what is going on around him. He is one of those greats who looks like he could run a midfield with a glass of red wine in one hand.
It is the cynicism that kills all the joy. I’m not that kind of a guy. I look at the glass half-full.
People have always painted me like a pessimist, like somebody who sees the glass half-empty. But I think the fact that I keep showing up and saying, ‘No, there must be a way for me to live in this world,’ that shows I’m an eternal optimist.
Drama is drama, and it’s really… if it’s something small, you put a magnifying glass up to it; if it’s something big, you use a wide lens.
I couldn’t think of anything worse than drinking a load of gunky-green stuff and sweating in a gym. I would rather sit in front of the TV and have a glass of wine.
I had no portrait, now, but am small, like the wren; and my hair is bold, like the chestnut bur; and my eyes, like the sherry in the glass, that the guest leaves.
You’re basically like glass: People see the candidates through you.
When I feel my blood sugar getting off, I drink a glass of kale juice. It’s so disgusting you don’t want to eat anything!
It is wonderful to be in the country in a glass house, because no matter what happens out there, you’re nice and safe, you know, cuddled in your little bed, and there it is, raging storms, snowing – wonderful.
I’m building a glass pyramid over the Egyptian escalator where my body will be mummified, so my customers can come and see me forever.
We did some soul-searching. Was the cable industry obsolete? Was it an opportune time to get out? Our conclusion was that if you rebuilt your system with this new fiber-optic coaxial hybrid – which we now call broadband – the glass was half full, not half empty. We could compete.
If the day’s writing has been particularly good or particularly bad, a glass of scotch will be involved.
It doesn’t bother me to talk about my private life, it doesn’t bother me to talk about anything. My life is like a glass of water, transparent.
The moonshot for Google Glass is to harmonize the physical and digital worlds. It is specifically to find a way to help people be naturally, elegantly situated, physical and digitally, at the same time.
Writers are outsiders. Even when we seem like insiders, we’re outsiders. We have to be. Our noses pressed to the glass, we notice everything. We mull and interpret. We store away clues, details that may be useful to us later.
Many girls aspire to a version of selfhood that puts a psychological glass ceiling on their potential to succeed. They suffer from what I call the Curse of the Good Girl: the pressure to be liked by everyone, generous to a fault, and flawless at everything you do.
I can’t pretend at how much I object to all of the plays that keep being brought back over and over again, the so-called classic plays. I mean how many times can we see ‘The Glass Menagerie?’
Most architects say: I want to use this type of glass, even if it’s too reflective or doesn’t let enough light in. However, the use of a certain type of glass might change the comfort level.
Somehow, I always imagine that Trump spends the evenings with his forehead pressed against the cold glass of an aquarium, talking telepathically to the tormented albino squid in which he has hidden his soul.
Go outside! I mean, even leaves from a park are beautiful in a clear glass vase. I’d rather see that than fake anything any day.
I went to Floridita on Wardour Street when I was 18. All I could afford was pumpkin soup and a glass of champagne, but it was worth it.
Americans always see China through the looking glass, and I think it’s about time – with technology and of the growing economic relationship between these two countries – I think it’s natural and better for all of us to have a better understanding of each other.
I have a punishing workout regimen. Every day I do 3 minutes on a treadmill, then I lie down, drink a glass of vodka and smoke a cigarette.
I love to work. When I was a kid, I would invite my friends over to play, then I would take them over to a recycling plant and we would haul glass all day. They hated me for this, but I thought it was fun.
We all drew on the comfort which is given out by the major works of Mozart, which is as real and material as the warmth given up by a glass of brandy.
There are real consequences when women speak out. It’s really dangerous, and it takes real courage. We are still speaking out against a white male majority. Forget the glass ceiling. We haven’t even broken the glass floor!
A city with one newspaper, or with a morning and an evening paper under one ownership, is like a man with one eye, and often the eye is glass.
How many people have a family grave in the backyard? I’m sure I’ll end up there, or I’ll shrink my head and put it in a glass box in the living room. I’ll get more tourists to Graceland that way.
I certainly came up in an era where women were really making strides and making a point to beat down doors and find their place and crash through the glass ceiling.
As it enters the ear, does it come in like broken glass or does it come in like honey?
I believe that women would crawl across broken glass to get a cool pair of shoes.
If someone paid me a million dollars to drink a glass of milk, I wouldn’t do it; maybe that’s because I don’t need the money.
Our house is made of glass… and our lives are made of glass; and there is nothing we can do to protect ourselves.
As New York careens toward the modernity of the twentieth century when Gibson girls were transforming themselves into working women, Clara Driscoll enters the male field of stained glass artistry and builds a lively, multi-national, multi-class women’s department within Tiffany Studios.
It’s a black Southern belief that blue glass keeps out bad spirits.
Life is shining a light through a magnifying glass on me, looking for me to stumble. I think that’s my biggest fear.
It was the corner sweet-shop in Australia that first piqued my interest in interior design. I went into this space with a mixture of apprehension and excitement as a child. It was filled, floor to ceiling, with the most incredible rounded glass bowls filled to the brim with bonbons, buttons, and sweets.
I lead a very regimented life. I take excruciating care of myself: I take a lot of vitamins, get enough sleep, don’t drink apart from a glass of wine occasionally.
A glass of whisky in Scotland in the thirties cost less than a cup of tea.
We’ve got a lot of players not playing domestic football week in, week out. What is it? Is it the crest on their chest that makes them raise their game? It must be. It’s playing for Wales. It’s powerful and everybody would walk on broken glass to get into this squad.
People are like stained – glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.
I have a big problem when the sanctimonious, holier than thou congressmen and women go on national television for six hours and beat somebody up with a stick, and not because I’m ‘Ms. Manners.’ That’s not what bothers me. People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
I like to be home on a Friday night. I don’t go out. I don’t go to clubs. It’s not my thing. I sit at home with my glass of wine and watch hours of reality TV.
Look I eat really well and I work out, but I also indulge when I want to. I don’t starve myself in an extremist way. You’re not taking away my coffee or my dairy or my glass of wine because I’d be devastated.
It has been common knowledge to informed collectors that many times the finest and rarest art glass is found unsigned.
I’ll tell you the truth: I had a double brandy before the game but, before, it used to be four bottles of whisky. Not any more. I was fine. I had a glass of wine after the game. But it was just a mouthful.
In the U.S., everything is big – it’s like looking through a magnifying glass.
There are lots of things, including changing the kind of inner dialog, that can mitigate anxiety. And yes, there are people who have the glass half full and glass half empty, and I’m afraid the glass is going to break and I’ll cut myself on the shards.
The ‘good’ mother, with her fixed smile, her rigidity, her goody-goody outlook, her obsession with unnecessary hygiene, is in fact a fool. It is the ‘bad’ mother, unafraid of a joke and a glass of wine, richly self-expressive, scornful of suburban values, who is, in reality, good.
The contention is if you don’t do it in the first quarter, if you don’t box out and control the glass in the first quarter, you are not going to do it in the fourth quarter and overtime.
HubSpot’s offices occupy several floors of a 19th-century furniture factory that has been transformed into the cliche of what the home of a tech startup should look like: exposed beams, frosted glass, a big atrium, modern art hanging in the lobby.
I think the process is one of using the camera and sound in the way a detective uses a magnifying glass: to find the clues. They’re discovery devices, not performance devices – you’re watching things the way a cat does. You’re not judging. You’re there to witness something.
There are no barriers, and there is no glass ceiling when you put in the work.
I love champagne, but I don’t have champagne every night. If I go out, and I want to have a drink, I’ll have a glass of champagne.
I am an avid lover of taking photographs of the night sky. Whenever I can, I get myself off to Canada or to Scotland and set up around the lake and spend a few hours in the middle of the night with a flask of coffee, a little glass of whiskey and some snacks.
James Horner, James Newton Howard, John Williams, Hans Zimmer, Michael Giacchino, or Ramin Djawadi would all be a dream come true for a ‘Throne of Glass’ soundtrack.
The more success you get, you start to be harder on yourself or more afraid of the looking glass. You have to learn to build a thicker skin because people are paying more attention.
Sorrow can be alleviated by good sleep, a bath and a glass of wine.
My deceased patients have taught me over the years to believe in the glass half full, to make good use of the time we have, to be generous – that was their lesson for the Uber-mind, and it was free. ‘Do that,’ they said, ‘and then perhaps death shall have no dominion.’
As difficult as it can be to have your private life plastered all over the press and on social media every day, I guess the one plus side is that it is like a looking glass for other women to look in and relate to.
Fiction can either be a mirror reflecting you back to yourself or it can be a clean pane of glass looking on the outside.
Perhaps the best thing about biographies is that they enable us to slip the strictures of time and provide a bracing corrective to our tendency to see everything in the dark glass of our own era, with all its blind spots, motes, beams, and distortions.
I’ve always wanted to put a little solarium on the back of my house. You know. Glass.

It feels like I can wrap up the day with a glass of beer.
The first book I ever bought for myself was ‘One Fish Two Fish’ by Dr. Seuss. My favourite page shows two children carrying an enormous glass jar up some stairs in the dark. In the jar is a tusked beflippered creature floating in brine.
Vision I think is going to be an important input. Like, if you’re using Google Glass, it’s going to be able to look around and read all the text on signs and do background lookups on additional information and serve that. That will be pretty exciting.
I used to do stop motion in my own garage and Claymation and all that stuff. That led to doing backgrounds and matte paintings. I started doing matte paintings professionally back before the computer, sort of painting on glass.
A Hubble Space Telescope photograph of the universe evokes far more awe for creation than light streaming through a stained glass window in a cathedral.
I didn’t want to go to college – I was bored by junior high. So I was in church one day, staring at the stained glass windows and thinking about things, when suddenly I decided that if I could start selling cartoons to magazines, they’d let me quit high school.
Robin Leach is a guy who, when he has the time, goes quietly to his house in Connecticut and sits looking into the fire with a good glass of red wine in his hand. And when I wake up in the morning, I wink at myself because I like me – I know who I am.
As for me, I was a lonely kid, with few close friends until I was an adult – even when I might have been perceived as being on the inside, I felt like I was on the outside, kind of like viewing the world through a sheet of glass.
Even at the United Nations, where legend has it that the building was designed so that there could be no corner offices, the expanse of glass in individual offices is said to be a dead giveaway as to rank. Five windows are excellent, one window not so great.
Sunday morning, I wake up at, like, 6 or 6:30 to go to the gym. I drink a glass of water, and then, before I start my workout, I drink a cup of coffee.
I think we’ll see, not only with Glass, but the watch wearables, with the contact lens, that each of these things have their own best purpose, but it will take more on our part and society’s part to figure out what that is.
Just because there’s glass on the road don’t mean there’s been an accident.
I financed and made my own films from the start. My path has been autonomous and independent, so I don’t have any horror stories about glass ceilings and expectations and tense studio meetings.
I thought of calorie-counting as a budget: I was happy to skip bread at dinner so I could ‘spend’ on a glass of wine.
The term ‘glass ceiling’ was coined in 1984. More than 20 years later, the ceiling has barely cracked. There isn’t a single country in the world that has as many female as male politicians. In business, the situation is even worse. Its highest echelon – the board – remains a chauvinist’s dream.
I kick off my metabolism with a glass of O.J. and a pretty big smoothie. I put in chia seeds, flax seeds, raw organic honey, fresh spinach, hemp seeds, avocado, matcha, spirulina, raw almond butter, almond milk, berries, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds.
From the time I started taking photographs, I started working with plastics. I’ve always treated plastic like it was marble or gemstone or fine glass. I’ve always gotten the most out of it. I love it!
As a child, I personally didn’t really get to know any Jews. I was eight years old when the Night of Broken Glass happened. And Ludwigshafen was purely a workers’ city, so we didn’t have a very big Jewish community. What I did know about the Jews, I heard from my mother. My mother was very much pro-Jewish.
As far as I’m concerned, the more power we push back to the patient, the individual, the American citizen, the more responsive the system is to her needs. ‘Obamacare,is responsive’ is like a hammer is responsive to a piece of glass.
As far as a glass ceiling, I feel that all you can do is give it your absolute best with whatever gifts the universe has given you. And if you make it in some way that other people can recognize, that’s fine. But even if you don’t quote-unquote make it, you’re fine if you’ve given it your whole heart and soul.
The first thing I do is brush my teeth – we like to start the morning with fresh breath – and put on my pajamas and meander down to the kitchen for a glass of orange juice. No coffee. No caffeine.
My wife and I really enjoy a glass of red wine. We’re too old to drink cheap wine, and we don’t.
When I went platinum, you know, I had no idea that it was going to go platinum and I would have been happy if it went double glass.
I know places you better speak low if you’ve been to college. Men will come across the room and cold-deck you if you hold your glass wrong.
The way glass can be molded or blown or cut into any kind of shape made me think about how we as people – our characters or souls – can be shaped or changed by outside influences.
Your glass will not do you half so much service as a serious reflection on your own minds.
One of the things ‘Minecraft’ is most noted for is the freedom it gives the players to build and experiment with the tools. You start off with simple objects; axes, torches, helmets and swords. With a little time and experimentation, you move to switches, complex machines, mine carts, glass.
The content of Saul Leiter’s photographs arrives on a sort of delay: it takes a moment after the first glance to know what the picture is about. You don’t so much see the image as let it dissolve into your consciousness, like a tablet in a glass of water.
After filming I like to go home and lie down with my daughter and have a glass of wine so I don’t really socialize with the other actors.
When things get really bad, just raise your glass and stamp your feet and do a little jig. That’s about all you can do.
When you won that title you should know now that you are representing a whole country or nation with your actions and you are now in a glass house or under a microscope and you better be ready to make your people proud.
Anytime I’ve been photographed with a glass of champagne in my hand, it’s really Red Bull.
At my dinner parties, I like to serve cheese after the main course because you still have red wine in the glass, and it goes very well with the cheese. And that is what they do in France, and I think they set a good example.
I love ‘Shattered Glass.’ It’s one of my favorite movies. I think it’s just brilliant.
I can’t switch time zones any more. London is one of my favourite places, but I’m always so zonked that I can’t appreciate it. It’s like a six-inch sheet of glass between me and Charing Cross Road.
We tell infertile couples all the time that are having trouble conceiving because of the woman not ovulating, ‘Just relax. Drink a glass of wine. And don’t be so tense and uptight because all that adrenaline can cause you not to ovulate.’
It’s very important for the parents of young autistic children to encourage them to talk, or for those that don’t talk, to give them a way of communicating, like a picture board, where they can point to a glass of milk, or a jacket if they’re cold, or the bathroom.
The first time I ever acted was in ‘The Glass Menagerie’ in high school, and my first line was, ‘I didn’t know Shakespeare had a sister.’
When I was asked to manage some issues in Europe for the government, I didn’t go to Parliament and just make a great speech and impress them. Instead, I will go down and discuss with those people about certain issues that we don’t agree, and over a glass of wine we talk about it and they say ‘okay, let’s forget it.’
Don’t keep excessive amounts of anything. Those glass vases that come from florists. Those ketchup packets that come with take-out food. A house with two adults probably doesn’t need fifteen mismatched souvenir coffee cups.
I’ve never opened a glass of champagne on any acquisition. Bankers do that.
I loved every second of Catholic church. I loved the sickly sweet rotting-pomegranate smells of the incense. I loved the overwrought altar, the birdbath of holy water, the votive candles; I loved that there was a poor box, the stations of the cross rendered in stained glass on the windows.
Sometimes I feel my glass is a bit half empty and I am a bit Eeyore-ish.
Holiday? Is like, what? I’m a hyperactive girl, so it may be boring for me to be on the beach doing nothing. I just need to find a place for three weeks and work but sleep in the morning, maybe write a little bit, have a glass of red wine. That’s my perfect holiday.
For inspiration, we still demand the rhetorical high notes. Clinton has hit them before, in her speech in Beijing as first lady when she said, ‘Women’s rights are human rights,’ and in her 2008 concession speech, when she talked about the ’18 million cracks’ in the glass ceiling.
I’m creative in my own life. I’m creative when I step out the door. I’m creative when I pick up a glass. Do you know what I mean? I’m one of those dreadful people who probably should have been born at the end of the 19th century and been in cafe society. That would have suited me fine.
On a Friday night in 1983, I was in a taxi in New York riding home from dinner with friends. A drunk driver ran a red light and hit the cab, and I was thrown toward the glass partition. I tried to duck, but my face hit the glass, and the impact fractured my cheekbone, my eye socket, my collarbone and several ribs.
People are constantly asking Portia and me if we are going to have children. We thought about it. We love to be around children after they’ve been fed and bathed. But we ultimately decided that we don’t want children of our own. There is far too much glass in our house.
I feel like ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass.’
Spiders keep me awake at night. If I see one that’s too big to get under a glass, there will be big problems. I’ll spend the rest of the day feeling like I’m being terrorised by this missing spider.
We are at a crossroads in the music business: with the rise of the internet, the world we live in has changed, and the past is not coming back. But I see the glass as half-full: the internet and social networking are new avenues for the next Bob Dylan to be born on.
When I put my nose in a glass, it’s like tunnel vision. I move into another world, where everything around me is just gone, and every bit of mental energy is focused on that wine.
Ava DuVernay, Sheryl Crow, Diane von Furstenberg, Ashley Graham, Tracy Reese, Pat Benatar, Issa Rae, Betty White – they’ve all shattered glass ceilings, whether in music, fashion, or film.
And you have to remember that I came to America as an immigrant. You know, on a ship, through the Statue of Liberty. And I saw that skyline, not just as a representation of steel and concrete and glass, but as really the substance of the American Dream.
My wife turns me onto shows. I do end up watching them. She has to drag me in there, and when she does, I enjoy it. ‘Glee’ was one of those things for the first year, especially – I got into that. I would sit down with a glass of wine and get into that. I even have a ‘Glee’ CD in my car.
People think that I must be a very strange person. This is not correct. I have the heart of a small boy. It is in a glass jar on my desk.
I went to a party in Ibiza in 1984 in this house built into the side of a cliff with glass walls. It was the most dramatic thing I’d ever seen. There was a fountain that ran through the house and off the edge of the cliff. If you’ve ever seen the Peter Sellers film ‘The Party,’ it was the spitting image of that.
We used to move pianos in New York City, and one time, it was, like, eight guys on a piano that was made of glass. We were moving it for Alicia Keys.
I didn’t abandon everything at a moment’s notice – on the contrary. I returned to France from America, leaving the ‘Large Glass’ unfinished.
I saw a boy of the crew purchasing javelins of them with bits of platters and broken glass.
Google Glass is the wearable computer that responds to voice commands and displays information on a visual display.
The first thing I did was give up sweet tea because I drank so much. I’d start drinking at lunchtime and wouldn’t set it down until I went to bed. When you calculate how much empty calories and how much sugar I was consuming, it was staggering. So I haven’t had a glass of sweet tea in three years.
When we’re able to get stops, get the ball off the glass and run, you never know who’s going to get the ball. Everyone takes off, runs to their spots, and the ball just finds the open man.
The world is a looking glass and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face.
