Quotations in the News


"I voted for Marco only because I've been a longstanding supporter. It's unfortunate he didn't do his job fully in Washington this term. I do think he deserves another chance. He thought he was doing the right thing (by running for president). That's my only complaint against him. He's a good man." - Diane Martin-Johnson, 66, after voting for Marco Rubio, who won his Republican primary race in Florida to run for U.S. Senate in November.

"Hopefully our roofs stay on, and our houses don't float way or get blown away. It's like, 'Oh my God, are we going to get flattened or what?'" - Hawaii resident Mitzi Bettencourt as a rare hurricane hurtled toward the Big Island.

"Y'all gonna stop playing with me like I'm the villain out here, like I'm going crazy. When you get the warrant or whatever you need to do, you're going to walk right up in here and you're going to see nothing. You idiots." - R&B singer Chris Brown in an Instagram video before he was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after a woman called for help from a gathering at his home.
