During the work, you have to be sure that you haven't left any holes, that you've captured everything, because afterwards it will be too late.
When I played Gollum in 'Lord of the Rings,' if I was climbing up the side of a mountain, which I physically did, you know, I was on every single occasion swimming through streams, all of that, that wasn't captured.

The God of the Hebrews is a God that human language, we're not even supposed to speak the holy name.

John Shelby Spong

Isidore Ducasse Lautreamont
There is this concept of politics as a dirty game. It's a difficult game, but it doesn't have to be dirty. I think this is what we need to bring to politics. I think politics around the world has very often been captured by big interests - 'lobbies' they call them in the States.
President Reagan was a leader at a time when the American people most needed leadership. He outlined a vision that captured the imagination of the free world, a vision that toppled the Communist empire and freed countless millions.
