All of us every single year we're a different person. I don't think we're the same person all our lives.
I have a musical called Goodbye and Good Luck based on a Grace Paley short story. I also have King Island Christmas and there are 20 different productions of it this year.
Brits and Americans have hundreds of different phrases for the same thing. Luckily it's usually a source of amusement rather than frustration. A flashlight by any other name is still a torch. My personal favourite is 'fairy lights ' which we boringly refer to as 'Christmas lights.'
Every man should have laws of his own I should think commandments of his own for every man has a different set of circumstances wherein to work - or worry.
I approach love differently now that I know it's hard for it to work out.
We are free but not to be evil not to be indifferent to human suffering not to profit from the people from the work created and sustained through their spirit of political association while refusing to contribute to the political state that we profit from.
It ain't easy to break out of a mold but if you do your work people will ultimately see what you're capable of. Too often people find it easier to make assumptions and stick with what they believe. They put you in a place and it makes their job easier. The good people constantly search for something different.
I work really hard at trying to see the big picture and not getting stuck in ego. I believe we're all put on this planet for a purpose and we all have a different purpose... When you connect with that love and that compassion that's when everything unfolds.
I like the challenge of trying different things and wondering whether it's going to work or whether I'm going to fall flat on my face.
Working hard and working smart sometimes can be two different things.
This world crisis came about without women having anything to do with it. If the women of the world had not been excluded from world affairs things today might have been different.
Why can't all different types of women be considered beautiful? Why can't we can't we all be considered possible love interests?
When the British came to Ibo land for instance at the beginning of the 20th century and defeated the men in pitched battles in different places and set up their administrations the men surrendered. And it was the women who led the first revolt.
To be outspoken or different at all is a problem for women.
Bias has to be taught. If you hear your parents downgrading women or people of different backgrounds why you are going to do that.
Women hear rhythm differently than men.
Friends are generally of the same sex for when men and women agree it is only in the conclusions their reasons are always different.
What's different now is that while political leaders used to give talking points to talk radio now talk-radio hosts are giving talking points to political leaders. It's all part of the suffocating spin cycle we're in. In media politics and publishing the conventional wisdom is to play to this base.
I'm actually reading 'World War Z' again! It's incredibly realistic and it's written as an oral history through interviews with different characters. Max Brooks wrote this book in so many different voices. There are about forty or so. It's incredible. When I finish 'World War Z' I'm going to go back and start again on the 'Game of Thrones' series.
No one has the right to ignite a war and lead an occupation and armies to conquer people invading them and make them suffer all kinds of torture murder expulsion displacement bombing and terrorism by different lethal prohibited weapons and then come and speak as the savior of the people or a defender of their rights.
We're fighting an enemy that is far different than any we have got before. It's a nontraditional kind of war and I think we need to step back recalibrate how we go about protecting our borders and protecting our people and resetting our position in the world.
You should be careful what you wish for as the reasons for war get confused. One person can be very clear in their motives but others can have different agendas.
What happened in America in the 1860s was a war of secession a war of independence no different in principle from what happened in America in the 1770s and 1780s.
You know the period of World War I and the Roaring Twenties were really just about the same as today. You worked and you made a living if you could and you tired to make the best of things. For an actor or a dancer it was no different then than today. It was a struggle.
