Globalization, as defined by rich people like us, is a very nice thing... you are talking about the Internet, you are talking about cell phones, you are talking about computers. This doesn't affect two-thirds of the people of the world.
It's going to seem idiotic to say this, but I think that at a given moment we all need a place to ourselves where we can refuge ourselves and cut ourselves off from the world.

I do not need the idea of God to explain the world I live in.
Movies are something people see all over the world because there is a certain need for it.
To be of use to the world is the only way to be happy.
The computer offers another kind of creativity. You cannot ignore the creativity that computer technology can bring. But you need to be able to move between those two different worlds.
Happiness in this world, when it comes, comes incidentally. Make it the object of pursuit, and it leads us a wild-goose chase, and is never attained. Follow some other object, and very possibly we may find that we have caught happiness without dreaming of it.
I'm so happy to be able to give kids the opportunity to learn about amazing world of dance and music that I've have been lucky enough to make such a big part of my own life.
Act happy, feel happy, be happy, without a reason in the world. Then you can love, and do what you will.

Our species needs, and deserves, a citizenry with minds wide awake and a basic understanding of how the world works.
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.
Man needs, for his happiness, not only the enjoyment of this or that, but hope and enterprise and change.
Everything you'll ever need to know is within you; the secrets of the universe are imprinted on the cells of your body.

I need more sex, OK? Before I die I wanna taste everyone in the world.
I'm very happy at home. I love to just hang out with my daughter, I love to work in my garden. I'm not a gaping hole of need.
We rarely find anyone who can say he has lived a happy life, and who, content with his life, can retire from the world like a satisfied guest.
I wanted to do another movie that could make us laugh and cry and feel good about the world. I wanted to do something else that could make us smile. This is a time when we need to smile more and Hollywood movies are supposed to do that for people in difficult times.
You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.
The world owes all its onward impulses to men ill at ease. The happy man inevitably confines himself within ancient limits.
You traverse the world in search of happiness, which is within the reach of every man. A contented mind confers it on all.
For happiness one needs security, but joy can spring like a flower even from the cliffs of despair.
The World Trade Center is a living symbol of man's dedication to world peace... a representation of man's belief in humanity, his need for individual dignity, his beliefs in the cooperation of men, and, through cooperation, his ability to find greatness.
