If you think about it, composed salads are like nachos (I’ll explain). When you’re eating a plate of nachos, it’s always a bummer when you get to those naked, topping-less chips on the bottom of the pile. It’s the same with salads. No one wants to find a naked leaf on the end of their fork.
Claire Saffitz

Ewan McGregor
Character actors just pile up the credits because you work on a movie for, like, a few days. It’s not like I’m the lead in everything I do – far from it. I’m not spending three or four months on a picture; I’m spending three or four weeks. Sometimes three or four days.

Michael Graves
I do have the most adorable little Chihuahua mix. I adopted him about 3 1/2 years ago from Much Love pet adoption, and he has been the love of my life ever since.

I’m still a size 10, but it’s the toning that’s getting me down, and I think it can only get more difficult as I get older. Either one gets very thin and scrawny, or one puts on poundage; I’m definitely not going to pile on the pounds, so I can expect to end up scrawny.
Kate O’Mara
Matt Leinart’s L.A. duplex looks more like a Chuck E. Cheese safe house than a millionaire jock’s crash pad.

Stephen Rodrick
Before I start, I search the internet for hours looking for inspiration – I look at horror movies, special effects, everything. Then, I take a bunch of screenshots, and pile them together in Photoshop to create a story for myself. I plan it out in my head, but I don’t ever practice beforehand.
Hedgehogs need somewhere to hibernate through the winter, but also a place that they can lie out at during the day.

What a circus act we women perform every day of our lives. Look at us. We run a tightrope daily, balancing a pile of books on the head. Baby-carriage, parasol, kitchen chair, still under control.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh
In my library/study/barn, there is a Ping-Pong table on which I can pile working books and spread maps.
Antony Beevor
I am a big believer that orderliness begets wealth. A pile of bills and statements – whether paid or not – is a sign that someone is clueless about what’s coming in and going out.

Suze Orman
