Are some women and children going to die? Yeah. But it's doing the right thing. You got money, you sit around talking about peace. People who don't have money need some help.
News is something that happens that matters to you, which is not most of what we watch on television.
When you step back and watch people, you realize that we use every single body part. Movement, dance - I find it genius because it's ultimate expression, really.

People tend not to use this word beauty because it's not intellectual - but there has to be an overlap between beauty and intellect.
When people are like each other they tend to like each other.
People of art should never get married and have children, because it's a selfish experience.
Television is like the invention of indoor plumbing. It didn't change people's habits. It just kept them inside the house.
