I tell the truth, and I expose myself as a weak, misguided, misdirected, dysfunctional human being I used to be.
I do listen to myself sometimes and think, 'Is my moral compass so easily swayed by the characters I play, or is it me growing as a human being?'
There are two insults no human being will endure: that he has no sense of humor, and that he has never known trouble.
Nobody on this earth has the right to tell anyone that their love for another human being is morally wrong.
No other human being, no woman, no poem or music, book or painting can replace alcohol in its power to give man the illusion of real creation.
The fact that the Prophet cared for every human being and tried his best to ensure their security in the hereafter must be the most telling of his compassionate and merciful characteristics.
It's extraordinary how self-obsessed human beings are. The things that people always go on about is, 'tell us about us', 'tell us about the first human being'. We are so self-obsessed with our own history. There is so much more out there than what connects to us.
It's hard to know exactly how people develop the characters they do. There could be people from humble beginnings that turn into jerks. Some characteristics are just part of that special soul of that human being.

I feel very lucky to have grown up having interaction with adults who were making change but who were far from perfect beings.

Marian Wright Edelman
I started a youth center in Houston. The kids would come in and want to learn to box; they wanted to tear up the world, beat up the world. And I'd try to show them they didn't need anger.

I go to this gym full of stunt men. There aren't any TVs or treadmills there. This is a spit-and-sawdust kind of place. It has a lot of great training aids - trampolines and bags and every weapon ever invented to do harm to a human being. If you want to know how to throw a knife, it's great.
