There are necessary evils. Money is an important thing in terms of representing freedom in our world. And now I have a daughter to think about. It's really the first time I've thought about the future and what it could be.
I think it's impossible to judge whether another person should come out. You just hope they will on their own time and their own terms.
Oh, God, I struggle with low self-esteem all the time! I think everyone does. I have so much wrong with me, it's unbelievable!
I think in metaphysical terms, I would call that increasing the speed of the vibration of life.
Let us learn to appreciate there will be times when the trees will be bare, and look forward to the time when we may pick the fruit.
I just came into my own sexuality at thirty. I don't think it's something you can deeply experience at 18 or any time before that.
I have no faith in human perfectability. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active - not more happy - nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago.
I think what drove me insane for a long time is feeling like I hadn't earned most of what I achieved because it came so fast.
It's good to experience Hollywood in short bursts, I guess. Little snippets. I don't think I can handle being here all the time, it's pretty nutty.
So people think I've been lying about my age all this time, It's the records that are wrong. I've never once told anyone how old I am.
I have a huge, active imagination, and I think I'm really scared of being alone; because if I'm left to my own devices, I'll just turn into a madwoman.
I would just never out anybody. I think everyone has to find it in their own way and their own time.
A lot of folks are still demanding more evidence before they actually consider Iraq a threat. For example, France wants more evidence. And you know I'm thinking, the last time France wanted more evidence they rolled right through Paris with the German flag.
Half the time I don't even think about it, I just throw something on because I'm so late or so busy.
Cancer victims who don't accept their fate, who don't learn to live with it, will only destroy what little time they have left.
Buddhism has had a major effect on who I am and how I think about the world. What I have learned is that I like all religions, but only parts of them.
It was good training to think spatially and to think in terms of story boarding and so on. So I was already a filmmaker but I hadn't realized it yet.
It's none of their business that you have to learn how to write. Let them think you were born that way.
Life holds one great but quite commonplace mystery. Though shared by each of us and known to all, seldom rates a second thought. That mystery, which most of us take for granted and never think twice about, is time.
It is impossible to begin to learn that which one thinks one already knows.
The real composer thinks about his work the whole time; he is not always conscious of this, but he is aware of it later when he suddenly knows what he will do.
For a long time I have compared cinema to music, I think cinema has a lot to do with the rhythm of music.
I think that everything is possible as long as you put your mind to it and you put the work and time into it. I think your mind really controls everything.
How did this or that change my music? The only time I have to think about it is when an interviewer asks me that.
I think it's a change that I did not intend at the time but it is clear that, from The Flower of My Secret on, there is a change in my films. A lot of the journalists have very generously attributed this to my growing maturity.
