BARBRA STREISAND, Barbara Walters interview, Sep. 13, 1985

Success is having ten honeydew melons and eating only the top half of each one.

BARBRA STREISAND, quoted in Little Giant Encyclopedia of Inspirational Quotes

For me, one of the most disturbing elements of the right wing's political agenda is that it believes that there is one correct spiritual and moral path for all people to follow.

I was on Nixon's Enemies List because I supported Gene McCarthy in 1968 and raised funds for Daniel Ellsberg in the Pentagon Papers trial. Then I did a concert for George McGovern. I campaigned for Bella Abzug from the back of a truck when she was elected to Congress. I was operating off my instincts, doing what I felt right as a citizen. I'm not a full-time activist. I've always been pro-choice, for the equality of women, for the protection of the environment. That's why I have a foundation to fortify my beliefs. That's how I give back. That's how I raise my voice. And whether the right-wing conservatives like it or not, I will keep on raising it.

BARBRA STREISAND, Life Magazine, May 22, 1964

Everyone has a right to love and be loved, and nobody on this earth has the right to tell anyone that their love for another human being is morally wrong.
