"If I could have one prayer answered, I would pray for patience. I move so fast sometimes. I try to slow down."
"Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity."Debra Winger on Carl Jung
"Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come."Debra Winger on Robert H. Schuller
"Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success."Debra Winger on Napoleon Hill
"We could never learn to be brave and patient, if there were only joy in the world."Debra Winger on Helen Keller
"How poor are they that have not patience! What wound did ever heal but by degrees?"Debra Winger on William Shakespeare
"I happen to be interested in watching a face age. I like faces of women aging so it makes me personally quite sad. That's a beautiful gift from God. If people don't want to see that anymore then I won't be in anymore movies."
"Never say never, but the thought of electively cutting oneself is beyond my grasp, and I also object to it politically. Denying the lines on our faces makes a comment about age and wisdom I don't care to make."
"People pay to see movies with women looking beautiful, but I think there will be a place for me to play women looking my own age."
"There's a small club of women who are willing to age."
"I hope to find the roles that are age appropriate but not yearning to be younger, or parenting ad nauseam."
