In 1983, I set up Caxton Corp. It's been an interesting and happy ride since.
I've never worked on anything that I haven't in some way enjoyed.
I was tweaked by the idea of Superman immediately.
I don't force myself to exercise; I find going to gyms really boring. I find it easier to go for a fast walk or a jog in Central Park. I wear sensible shoes because my ballet dancing left me with a bunion on one foot after all the pointe exercises.
I want to shoot some indies, some independent features that give me some space to play a little bit.
Everything in the world exists to end up in a book.
We typically sell a catheter lab to a hospital, and it sits there for the next 10 years, and we don't visit the cardiologist on a daily basis. Volcano have a disposable business. They are in the cath lab on a daily basis.
There are things in American culture that want to wipe the class distinction. Blue jeans. Ready-made clothes. Coca-Cola.
As a writer, I challenge myself not to tell the same story - to tackle different characters with different issues.
Palestine is our unforgettable historic home. The very name would be a force of marvelous potency for summoning our people together.
Being in Loyola College exposed me to other options and gave me confidence, apart from the freedom to bunk classes. I became a merchandiser and then a garment manufacturer, and interacting with foreign buyers and manufacturing foreign brands in India gave me a high.
People are surprised at how down-to-earth I am. I like to stay home on Friday nights and listen to 'The Art of Happiness' by the Dalai Lama.
There's no such thing as a foolproof system. That idea fails to take into account the creativity of fools.
What calmed me down finally was when my girlfriend got pregnant.
As for the forces, electromagnetism and gravity we experience in everyday life. But the weak and strong forces are beyond our ordinary experience. So in physics, lots of the basic building blocks take 20th- or perhaps 21st-century equipment to explore.
Lots of folks still do watch TV, but I think understanding the future of politics means understanding where folks' attention is being paid and delivering your message and your ideas in that space.
I try to avoid a specific image. I seek to play as many different women as I can to avoid having a label put on me.
On grass, it can be the small things that decide a match.
The writer has two kinds of faith: actual writing and sitting openly. Have faith in your personal effort or sweat. And faith in God, or whatever you want to call it. Then the voices will come. Faith is the big deal.
Anti-intellectualism has long been the anti-Semitism of the businessman.
When I finished my term, I thought about running for governor then but decided not to because, frankly, I didn't think I was ready. I wasn't comfortable that I was prepared to do the job.
Architecture begins when you place two bricks carefully together.
To some people heavy metal is Motorhead and to others it's Judas Priest.
I don't persuade to suicide.
I like characters who are changed, often for the better, by the dark nature of their experiences. I also can become engaged by a character for whom I wish to see justice done, one way or the other. In general, I require a book to have some sort of moral center.
It might be argued that genuine spontaneity is not really possible or desirable so long as printed scores of great works exist. All modern musicians are, for better or worse, prisoners of Gutenberg.
It is a different genre - a show about something other than doctors, lawyers and cops. Teachers are something completely different. I think it makes for very interesting television.
Other psychological theories say a good deal about compensation.
Certainly a decade and a half out in the real world, bashing my head against things, probably made me into a more textured writer. It gives you something to write about.
