  • Not only is it harder to be a man, it is also harder to become one.

  • I come from a Greek household. My mother wouldn't let the FedEx man come in without eating.

    • Arianna Huffington,
    • in Reader's Digest ()
  • The journey toward self-discovery is life's greatest adventure.

    • Arianna Huffington,
    • in Marlo Thomas and Friends, The Right Words at the Right Time ()
  • ... corporate America corrupted the watchdogs that were supposed to be guarding the public interest by feeding them under the table.

  • ... having too much is never enough.

  • Both political parties have a richly vested interest in corporate corruption.

  • For a hot-shot CEO taking over a troubled company, mass firings are the ultimate quick fix, the accounting equivalent of crack: cheap, easy to score, instantly gratifying, and highly addictive.

  • We have created a democracy that links us all, and with it come not only opportunities but obligations. There are no gates or walls high enough. There are no bank accounts large enough to buy you and your family and your friends protection from the fear and hunger of those left behind or to isolate you from the consequences of growing social inequities. We are all in this boat together. And the fact that there isn't a hole at your end of the boat doesn't mean you are safe.

  • The crisis in America that we barely notice anymore is that we've become two nations — divided by poverty, opportunity, and race. It's like a neighbor's car alarm that we don't hear anymore because it rings so often.

  • The only tool we have to fix the problems of this country — the democratic process — is itself broken. Which is why nothing will fundamentally change until we solve the problem of money in politics.

  • ... we'll have to reclaim the word 'taxes.' Why has it become a synonym for 'evil'? I understand that no one likes to pay good money for nothing. But fire and police protection aren't nothing. ... Roads, bridges, airports, and mass transit systems aren't nothing. National parks, clean air, and clear water aren't nothing. A safe food supply, functioning schools with well-trained teachers, and well-equipped hospitals aren't vaporous apparitions either.

  • In theory we are all equal before the law. In practice, there are overwhelming privileges that come with winning the birth lottery.

  • The most effective means for restoring the integrity of our electoral process, and repairing the public's tattered faith in its elected representatives, is through the full public financing of political campigns. It's the mother of all reforms: the one reform that makes all other reforms possible. After all, he who pays the piper calls the tune. If someone's going to own the politicians, it might as well be the American people.

  • Any time we have projects that we haven't begun or completed, they drain energy.

    • Arianna Huffington,
    • in More ()
  • Fearlessness is the mother of reinvention.

    • Arianna Huffington,
    • in Reader's Digest ()
  • ... accept failure as part and parcel of life. It's not the opposite of success; it's an integral part of success.

    • Arianna Huffington,
    • in Katie Couric, The Best Advice I Ever Got ()
  • But fearlessness is not the absence of fear. It's the mastery of fear. It's all about getting up one more time than you fall down.

    • Arianna Huffington,
    • in Katie Couric, The Best Advice I Ever Got ()
  • As a little girl my greatest joy was to lose myself in a book — at first it was books with big pictures and few words and gradually books with many words and few or no pictures ... Today, many years later and millions of words later, I still get a positively physical pleasure from a beautifully carved sentence or a powerfully expressed idea.

    • Arianna Huffington
  • Our current obsession with creativity is the result of our continued striving for immortality in an era when most people no longer believe in an afterlife.
