Quote of the Day
The government forces you to give your money to things you don't believe in, to have your money go to projects that might be inherently immoral.
Steven Spielberg seems to have wanted to be a director from 13. He put his dog in a certain position and made him eat at four o'clock. He liked to direct it. But, to me, directing is tedious. Especially if you're acting in it. And I'm inherently lazy.
We can grow crops less expensively because molecular manufacturing technology is inherently low cost.
When you consider the concept of vampirism, it is inherently part of a Western culture.
Most of nature is inherently chaotic. It's not rigidly determined in the old sense. It's not rigidly predictable.
I think that I always thought that if my uncle was on Broadway, then I must inherently have a good voice. I don't think that for a while I did. Eventually, out of sheer will of never wanting to get a job or go to college, I found my way into doing music full-time.
Abortion is inherently different from other medical procedures because no other procedure involves the purposeful termination of a potential life.
Whenever I go to work I wear a jacket and a tie, because I'm inherently quite lazy, and my books take so long to do, and my publishers don't bug me, so it's so easy to fool yourself into thinking you're working harder than you really are.
We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We'd have eaten ourselves alive long ago.
Our thoughts and our feelings, of course, are not wholly objective, they're inherently subjective. And that's the danger, and I think as long as we're aware of it and can push back against it, I don't think that these two views are necessarily incompatible.
The Semantic Web isn't inherently complex. The Semantic Web language, at its heart, is very, very simple. It's just about the relationships between things.
Tim Berners Lee
So 'The Last Airbender' 's philosophy and culture feels like a beautiful idea to me: That we inherently have connections to the elements and what they teach us, and to each other.
M. Night Shyamalan
I am absolutely and inherently self-destructive in that I am always making sure I'm doing what I want to do.
All human beings are inherently good, so when someone goes off the rails, there must be some mitigating factor - he was bullied, was a loner, had an abusive father, or a domineering mother, etc.

I think if you look at the themes that are presented in the film, some are inherently social, and I think that any film which deals with the family is dealing with the smallest social unit in our society - and in a sense it is a question of scope.

It's soothing to realize that my mind's processes are inherently uncontrollable.
The good news, to relieve all this gloom, is that a democracy is inherently self-correcting. Here, the people are sovereign. Inept political leaders can be replaced. Foolish policies can be changed. Disastrous mistakes can be reversed.
Theodore C. Sorensen
It is easy to romanticize poverty, to see poor people as inherently lacking agency and will. It is easy to strip them of human dignity, to reduce them to objects of pity.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Optimism is not inherently a superior way of viewing the world. Certainly doctors will say it might be better for one's physical health to be an optimist. But, morally speaking it may not be appropriate in certain circumstances.
The permanent campaign is inherently deceptive.
I'm an inherently happy person. It comes from the inside, which means you can achieve happiness under any circumstance.
