Your look at the five biggest and most buzz-worthy stories of the morning.

1. Hillary Clinton's Most Revealing Quotes

Hillary Clinton sat down with ABC's Diane Sawyer for an exclusive, wide-ranging interview, coinciding with the release of her new memoir, "Hard Choices." In it, Clinton weighed in on everything from her 2016 timetable to Benghazi to her hobbies after life as President Obama's secretary of state.

One of her key quotes involved her loss in the 2008 presidential race.

"I think because I really didn't have a good strategy for my campaign. I didn't plan it the right way. ... As a candidate who was already so well known ... I don't think I ever said, 'Yes, you may have known me for eight years, but I don't take anything for granted. I have to earn your support."

2. Donald Sterling Says No Deal; Suit Is On

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has pulled his support from a deal to sell the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and will pursue his $1 billion federal lawsuit against the NBA, his attorney said Monday.

"We have been instructed to prosecute the lawsuit," said attorney Maxwell Blecher. He said co-owner Donald Sterling would not be signing off on the deal to sell.

3. Lori Petty on Discovering Jennifer Lawrence

After a long hiatus, Lori Petty, the star of 90s cult classics "Point Break," "A League of Their Own" and "Tank Girl" is back on the screen in the second season of "Orange Is the New Black."

When screen roles dried up, Petty, now 50, moved behind the camera, directing her feature debut "The Poker House" in 2008, and discovering none other than Jennifer Lawrence.

"I cast her in her first film," Petty told The Daily Beast. “Look, she deserves one hundred percent of her success, period. In addition to that, I think I passed along 25 years of experience of being an actress to her.”
