You Can Count on This!
"You cannot afford to trust someone other than yourself to handle your finances without any oversight on your part. Just look at all the people who trusted Bernie Madoff. They didn't ask questions. If an investment sounds too good to be true, trust me, it is."
"I trust three medical websites. I subscribe to UptoDate (Utdol.com) for basic information and Cochrane Reviews (Cochrane.org) for peer-reviewed studies on big subjects. For medical updates, I use WebMD.com."
"My fingers are my trustiest makeup tools. I use them to line my eyes, smudge on shadow or pot rouge, blot lipstick, blend foundation, even curl my lashes. I'm not saying throw out your brushes, but there's nothing you can't do with your fingers, except maybe fill in brows."
"My most-trusted dinner party dish is mango couscous because you can eat it hot or at room temperature, and it takes five minutes to cook. I mix in garlic, ginger, and tomatoes; spices like cardamom; lime juice, parsley, and cilantro. Then I top it off with quarter-inch–diced mango."
"I trust fiction more than nonfiction. When you read really good fiction, the writers are telling you the truth. John Cheever, for instance. Everything I might need to know about what it means to live in a family, to be a human being, is in his novels. I can't think of any higher trust."
"The hairstyle I trust to look good on anyone is the bob, in all of its variations. It's fresh yet classic and works for every hair type and texture. The shape of a bob, whether A-line, one length, or layered, is also the most versatile haircut for styling. You can go from poker-straight '60s mod to wavy, Old Hollywood glam."
"The low-cost wine I trust without fail is Casa Lapostolle Cuvée Alexandre Merlot, Colchagua, Chile 2006. I put this $20 bottle in blind tastings with more expensive wines because it fools even the pickiest oenophiles, who love its rich, plummy smoothness."
"When it comes to burning fat, the trusty BOB stroller is an exercise-grade stroller that allows you to get an incredible workout with your child riding along. It's the reason my wife lost her pregnancy weight in a flash. It kept me in shape too."
"To say that I trust any airline to get me anywhere on time would be delusional. The real question is, which airline do I trust to recover better than others when they don't get me there on time? And that would be American. They have more flights, which means more options if I have to rebook a flight."
"If you buy nothing else organic, buy eggs, milk, chicken, and beef. I'm more likely to trust these foods to be organic because they're more closely inspected. I educate myself all the time. I want to know something about the farm that I'm buying my organic chickens from."
"I trust Target's website to have the looks and styles I want. You can find every size, style, shoe type (some styles up to a 12, and I wear an 11!)—most of it under $30. And Target.com is good for basics. Recently, I found a black pencil skirt to wear for TV appearances."
"The people I trust in sports are those who believe that sports are much more than a game: athletes like Venus Williams, who is working on gender equality issues with UNESCO, and programs like NFL Play 60 and the Women's Sports Foundation's GoGirlGo!, which uses sports to get young people active in this country."
"Neutrality used to be a virtue in the press. Television has changed that by elevating news anchors to stars who say things to get ratings. I trust the print press more. If you value objectivity, read a newsweekly and a variety of newspapers—for as long as they last."
