I have a great family, I live an amazing life.
Children find themselves adrift not because the informational signposts are illegible, but because there is no one around to guide and accompany them.
For me, the first fact of human existence is the human body. But if you embrace the reality of the human body, you embrace mortality, and that is a very difficult thing for anything to do because the self-conscious mind cannot imagine non-existence. It's impossible to do.
Our skin colours may vary, but what's upstairs - there's certain things we've all got in common.
When I can find a story that explores something that I don't know what I think, I've got a play. If I knew the answer, I would write a speech or an essay.
I got different moods. Like, if I'm in a good mood, I listen to 'Up' by Thug. If I'm not in a good mood, I'll listen to 'King TROUP' - that's a real emotional one.
I treasure laughs more than anything; they've helped me in life the most.
Knowledge comes from the past, so it's safe. It is also out of date. It's the opposite of originality... Experience is the opposite of being creative.
Especially in the realm of bringing an opportunity to do something creative to people, as I said, who wouldn't ordinarily have that opportunity. I think that's very important.
I was a natural skater, but I also took private lessons to enhance my skills.
The thing that I loved about 'Feud,' we froze a moment in time for these families that had never occurred before. That's magic.
I don't just preach; I put my money where my mouth is!
Over emphatic negatives always suggest that what is being denied may be what is really being asserted.
My children and their happiness have always been my greatest concern.
The only art I have is a Polaroid from Peter Beard from his book. I shot with him four years ago, and he did a special Polaroid for me, so I consider it a piece of art.
I have a theory that self-made, first-generation actresses don't feel entitled to success.
I really wanted to write an adventure story, a murder-mystery that was set during the gold-rush years in New Zealand.
Being pregnant is the most natural thing our bodies can do. Our grandparents did it without all these books, and they came out okay.
About two months into the Whisky, I borrowed some money and rented a remote recording truck.
I don't really have a dream collaboration.
I like to keep my private stuff pretty vague.
We thought the church had withdrawn from interfering in Italian politics... but instead there is a terrible resurgence. These are ugly signs for freedom of expression.
As it turns out, what looks like science sometimes is not.
We've got to get things done. We've got an economy that is stabilized, but not moving ahead.
I really believe in the radical viewpoint. And I have always believed that one's politics and the character of his particular work are inseparable.
There are technologies you couldn't predict at all when I started.
There is an alternative to war. It has been with us forever.
I can remember when 'Pulp Fiction' came out. I was, like, 10 years old. But I remember the impact that it had.
I grew up in this town, my poetry was born between the hill and the river, it took its voice from the rain, and like the timber, it steeped itself in the forests.
