At the age of 16 I was already dreaming of having a baby because I felt myself to be an adult, but my mum forbid it. Right now, I feel like a teenager and I want to have fun for one or two more years before starting a family.
I think the biggest disease the world suffers from in this day and age is the disease of people feeling unloved. I know that I can give love for a minute, for half an hour, for a day, for a month, but I can give. I am very happy to do that, I want to do that.
Analogies, it is true, decide nothing, but they can make one feel more at home.
I certainly feel that an adult woman has a right to determine what happens to her life and body.
The distinction between children and adults, while probably useful for some purposes, is at bottom a specious one, I feel. There are only individual egos, crazy for love.
I have the true feeling of myself only when I am unbearably unhappy.
The biggest disease this day and age is that of people feeling unloved.
Be a good animal, true to your animal instincts.
People always tell me, 'Don't work so much', but I can't help it. I feel like all the things I've done are important to get to this adult stage and now I'm getting all these adult offers, so it's working.
In love, no one can harm anyone else; we are each of us responsible for our own feelings and cannot blame someone else for what we feel. It hurt when I lost each of the various men I fell in love with. Now, though, I am convinced that no one loses anyone, because no one owns anyone. That is the true experience of freedom: having the most important thing in the world without owning it.
Women are always true, even in the midst of their greatest falsities, because they are always influenced by some natural feeling.
True love cannot be measured or evaluated by any standard or conventional methods. Not by weight, percentage or any other yardstick. One knows they reached the limit and capacity of their love when they feel their heart overflowing with it.
My reason, it's true, controls my feelings, but whatever its authority, it doesn't rule them so much as tyrannize them.
My great religion is a belief in the blood, the flesh, as being wiser than the intellect. We can go wrong in our minds. But what our blood feels and believes and says, is always true. The intellect is only a bit and a bridle.
I'd like to do a story about the medieval ages where in every scene you'd sort of feel that you were in the 12th century. That would be great to get that feeling.
What is an adult? A child blown up by age.
There's no way I'm going to put this kid in the movies, because of the rejection. It's so hard as an adult, so why set her up to feel that bad as a child?
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Ours is an excessively conscious age. We know so much, we feel so little.
Here comes 40. I'm feeling my age and I've ordered the Ferrari. I'm going to get the whole mid-life crisis package.
I feel this is very important for us to have serene buildings because our civilization is chaotic as it is, you see; our whole machine age has brought about a chaos that has to be somehow counterbalanced, I think.
Every true man is a cause, a country, and an age; requires infinite spaces and numbers and time fully to accomplish his design.
So people think I'm lying about my age all the time? It's the records that are wrong. I've never told anyone how old I am. The minute they ask me, I say 'That's none of your business.' So that means I've never once lied about my age. Now that's true!
Real beauty is to be true to oneself. That's what makes me feel good.
He who is of a calm and happy nature will hardly feel the pressure of age, but to him who is of an opposite disposition youth and age are equally a burden.
