"Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow."Gabrielle Union on William Shakespeare
"Deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance."Gabrielle Union on Oscar Wilde
"The word 'romance,' according to the dictionary, means excitement, adventure, and something extremely real. Romance should last a lifetime."Gabrielle Union on Billy Graham

"I think I'm drawn to more villain-type characters, because it's so cool to get to say all the things you want to say. In Hollywood, you get to this position where you have to bite your tongue so much. You take all your experiences of not being able to say what you really want to say, and channel that through your character."
