We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
I would rather be an aware citizen, and if an opportunity were to arise where I would have to make a statement, I would happily do that.
Censors can make a case for zero tolerance in language. They can make the argument that since we don't allow our children to use that language in schools, we also shouldn't give them stories in which it is used.
Advertising is the modern substitute for argument; its function is to make the worse appear the better.
It's very hard to make arguments about the effects of cloning on family relations if family relations are in tatters.
In many respects, you can argue Dodd-Frank isn't even law. It's a license for unaccountable, un-elected officials to make law.
Some might argue humans are hard-wired to fight. I don't agree: we are conscious beings who have the capacity to make decisions.
Compensation needs to be predominately performance-driven. If CEO compensation was performance-driven, which I believe it was in IBM's case, nobody would ever argue. If the shareholders didn't make billions and billions of dollars, I wouldn't make millions of dollars.
My involvement in the political arena is to make sure there's a place for culture.
I believe Ronald Reagan can make this country what it once was... a large Arctic region covered with ice.
I love architecture, but I learned early on that architects just don't make a lot of money.
To make architecture with any real value is a massive challenge.
Architecture arouses sentiments in man. The architect's task therefore, is to make those sentiments more precise.
I wanted to make a movie about the arbitrary nature of love.
I make a distinction between manners and etiquette - manners as the principles, which are eternal and universal, etiquette as the particular rules which are arbitrary and different in different times, different situations, different cultures.
Yasser Arafat never wanted to make peace with Israel.
Arafat rejected the deal because, as a dictator who had directed all his energies toward strengthening the Palestinians hatred toward Israel, Arafat could not afford to make peace.
We should demand his blood not from the Arabs of Gaza but from ourselves. Let us make our reckoning today.
Saudi Arabia makes a billion dollars a day, okay? They make a billion dollars a day.
