Famous quotes containing the word aware:

    What we have found in this country, and maybe we’re more aware of it now, is one problem that we’ve had, even in the best of times, and that is the people who are sleeping on the grates, the homeless, you might say, by choice.
    I am my brother’s keeper, and he’s sleeping pretty rough these days.
    Derek, Archbishop Worlock (b. 1920)

    It is as easy to deceive oneself and not be aware of it, as it is hard to deceive others without their being aware of it.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    Celebrity is a mask that eats into the face. As soon as one is aware of being “somebody,” to be watched and listened to with extra interest, input ceases, and the performer goes blind and deaf in his overanimation. One can either see or be seen.
    John Updike (b. 1932)
