QUOTA of QUOTES “I gravitate towards stories that are inspiring, evocative and give you the excitement and energy to get up and do something.”—Los Angeles-based director Manjari Makijany, whose film Spin was nominated for two awards at the 2022 Children’s and Family Emmy Awards. (IANS)









“I thought elected officials should be more proactive, should be there for the community all the time, they should be accessible. People should be your first priority. I’m a volunteer first and a politician second.”—Tony Singh, city councilor in Little Elm, Texas, on why he ran for office. (Fort Worth Star-Telegram)







“We’re in a difficult period economically. The company is going through a layoff process and I essentially made the decision to lay myself off in the interest of saving other jobs.”—Peter Bhatia, former top editor at the Detroit Free Press, who stepped down last month after a long and distinguished career in newspaper journalism. (Detroit Free Press)








“The funny part is that the concept of marriage and kids was something we discussed on our very first date. Usually that’s a red flag where people are like, ‘Okay, bye,’ but I think we stayed together because of that discussion.”— Aditya Madiraju, revealing that he and Amit Shah, whose traditional Hindu wedding went viral in 2019, are expecting a child through an egg donor and in vitro fertilization. (People magazine)
