I admire American ideas.
I used to have a lovely Chelsea loft - then I got divorced.
Most of the tasks we do are for humans. For example, a tax calculation is counting numbers so the government can pull money out from my wallet, but government consists of humans.
In my home state of Maine, we've seen out-of-state groups with anonymous donors spend millions of dollars to campaign against issues that don't fit their agenda.
I don't like to go out to parties or clubbing, and I kind of like my anonymity.
And help us, this and every day, to live more nearly as we pray.
It's nice to have a situation where you can make it fun.

That's where the future lies, in the youth of today.
In my wildest dreams, I never would have thought we'd come to the point where were talking about the re-election of a black president.

My biggest turn-on has to be brains, intelligence.
I am very, very diligent and extremely hard-working.

Re-writing is different from writing. Original writing is very difficult.
I don't know how to exist before 9 A.M. And without coffee, I'm not classified as a human. Actually, I could be regarded as a threat.
