One of the turning points in the look of the Guardian is when we decided Logan Thackeray would be a Guardian as opposed to a Warrior. Logan’s own protective nature and the fact that the humans have been knocked back into defensive positions informed a lot of what the Guardian became.

Christopher Hitchens
I like to be loved by my children, and I quite like the ‘Guardian’ hating me. I like it when I read they want me to die painfully. Then I think I’ve really got under their skin. It’s like annoying a teacher. Once they’ve shown signs of weakness, you really can go for them.

Sarah Manguso
Working on an adaptation is not as satisfying, because it’s not your original work: you’re interpreting. With ‘L.A. Confidential,’ I loved the book.

Michael Buerk
The more films we make the more we get to deal with those pre-existing relationships. But when it comes to a movie like Ant-Man or Guardians or certainly Doctor Strange, it’s just bringing to life stuff that’s already been there in the comics and we finally get a chance to do it on the big screen.
Kevin Feige
As editor, I think we need to act more decisively on what kind of material appears on the ‘Guardian’. Those who argue that this is an affront to freedom of speech miss the point. That freedom counts for little if it is used to silence others.

William Irwin Thompson
There’s a moment in Sarah Manguso’s The Guardians when she writes, “I try not to make anything up, and I fail every time.” I get giddy when I come across lines like that – when the writer is not only making a meta-move, but one that troubles truth and fiction, the nature of genre itself.
Jill Talbot
So I feel now very much like a guardian. I’m standing in front of art. I’m standing in front of cinema. I’m standing in front of Black culture. I’m standing in front of the history of America, and I’m protecting it by making art, by protecting our art, and by promoting our art.
Jonathan Majors

Yes, I believe in guardian angels, because otherwise I must believe that life is a string of death-defying miracles – and I don’t believe in miracles.
Robert Breault
I started at ‘The Daily Telegraph’ as a daily news reporter. I moved then to ‘The Guardian,’ and then I moved to New York as the correspondent for ‘The Guardian,’ moved to ‘The Times of London.’ And really, it was the best job you could imagine. You could cover any story you wanted in America.
Joanna Coles
My mother has become my daughter and I’ve become her guardian.
Phillip Lim

Marcus Tullius Cicero
For myself it would be most irksome to be ruled by a bevy of Platonic Guardians, even if I knew how to choose them, which I assuredly do not.
Learned Hand
I read the ‘Guardian,’ because it’s a bit like having an argument with a mate. We mostly have the same sensibilities, but where we disagree, it’s infuriating.
Lennie James
The secret of the superiority of state over private education lies in the fact
that in the former the teacher is responsible to society … [T]he result
desired by the state is a wholly different one from that desired by parents,
guardians, and pupils.

Jeremy Taylor
If I was to be their real teacher and guardian, I must touch their hearts, I must share their joys and sorrows, I must help them to solve the problems that faced them, and I must take along the right channel the surging aspirations of their youth.
Mahatma Gandhi
In mauve sea-orchids as in her striking earlier book Guardians of the Secret, Lila Zemborain brings into relationship the viscera of the body and the spill of the universe in tense compositions that blur distinctions between lyric and prose poetry, between science and eros.
Forrest Gander
The E.U. cannot act as guardian of the post-Cold War status quo without risking a collapse of Europe’s current institutional infrastructure.
Ivan Krastev

Mason Cooley
My Guardian is the Planet of Silence. Soldier Of Death and Rebirth Sailor Saturn! – Hotaru as Sailor Saturn
Naoko Takeuchi
Skeptics squat by the road like guardians of truth, letting no one pass who doesn’t come up to scratch. They never realize that they can see only what their paradigm tells them to look for. If you judge a person only by how well he plays pool, Mozart won’t pass scrutiny, but the fault is in your lens.
Deepak Chopra
A degree of culture, and assuredly a very high one, is attained when man rises above superstitions and religious notions and fears, and, for instance, no longer believes in guardian angels or in original sin, and has also ceased to talk of the salvation of his soul.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Assuming, as you grow older, that you’re the guardian of the world’s wisdom, even if you haven’t necessarily lived enough to know what’s right and wrong.
Paulo Coelho
When I started at the ‘Guardian,’ though, I couldn’t think of anything we saw eye to eye on, except feminism, and even this would soon be arguable as ‘Guardian’ writers queued up to drool over Eminem.
Julie Burchill

Richelle Mead
I was sad Jon Ronson, who wrote in the Guardian and has made a TV show for Channel 4, took against me.
Jonathan King
The Almighty implanted in us these inextinguishable feelings for good and wise purposes. They are the guardians of His image in our heart. They distinguish us from the herd of common animals.
Thomas Paine
Necessity is a guardian in Nature.
Leonardo da Vinci
If the transmigration of a soul takes place into a rational being, it simply becomes the soul of that body. But if the soul migrates into a brute beast, it follows the body outside, as a guardian spirit follows a man. For there could never be a rational soul in an irrational being.
You have the gift of a brilliant internal guardian that stands ready to warn you of hazards and guide you through risky situations.
Gavin de Becker
That a guardian should require another guardian to take care of him is ridiculous indeed.
I usually like ‘The Guardian’ and its journalistic bent, but sometimes ‘The Independent.’ And if I’m being totally honest, some weekends I’ll have a ‘News of the Screws’ or a ‘Sunday Spurt.’ You need high and lowbrow.

Lauren Kate
Education is ‘the guardian genius of our democracy.’ Nothing really means more to our future, not our military defenses, not our missiles or our bombers, not our production economy, not even our democratic system of government. For all of these are worthless if we lack the brain power to support and sustain them.
Lyndon B. Johnson
It’s curious that throughout our history together, with no apparent effort, people have been able to think of the cat simultaneously as the guardian spirit of the hearth and home, and as the emblem of freedom, independence, and rootlessness.
Barbara Holland
Genius everywhere is one. In the Orient and in the Occident the deep thinkers are kin, the poets are cousins, the pioneers of the spirit are the messengers of peace and good will to the world. Their works are the open highways between nations, and they themselves are the ever living guardians and guides.
Ameen Rihani

Animals are not resources or property with whom we can do what we please, their lives matter very much, and they should be firmly entrenched in our moral community. Accepting the notion of ‘animal guardian’ to replace ‘pet owner’ will go a long way towards making the lives of our companions much better and richer.
Marc Bekoff
The people are the best guardians of their own rights and it is the duty of their executive to abstain from interfering in or thwarting the sacred exercise of the lawmaking functions of their government.
William Henry Harrison

Doreen Virtue
