I don't think that people accept the fact that life doesn't make sense. I think it makes people terribly uncomfortable. It seems like religion and myth were invented against that, trying to make sense out of it.
During the Middle Ages they understood that words accompanied by imagery are much more memorable. By making the margins of a book colorful and beautiful, illuminations help make the text unforgettable. It's unfortunate that we've lost the art of illumination.
I think that the path that I took was normal in the American society where young women and men are not trained as to how to make the transition from being a girl to being a woman, from being a boy to being a man. And so I think that most young people in America live by trial and error, and not by parental instruction, community guidance.
Movies don't make people act a fool. People act a fool because they want to act a fool.

Honore de Balzac

John Kenneth Galbraith
The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too.

If we're so cruel to minorities, why do they keep coming here? Why aren't they sneaking across the Mexican border to make their way to the Taliban?
To be a leader, you have to make people want to follow you, and nobody wants to follow someone who doesn't know where he is going.
I know a lot of people who really aren't beautiful because their attitudes are very nasty... Whether I make the 50 most beautiful list or not, I'm always going to feel like I'm number one most beautiful to myself... I get that from my mom, and my daddy and my friends who raised me.
I always keep my guard up with guys and I guess that can get in the way sometimes. I can make them go through hell.
It takes a real man to make a true confession - a Chocolate Soldier will excuse or cloak his sin.
A man needs to look, not down, but up to standards set so much above his ordinary self as to make him feel that he is himself spiritually the underdog.
The 'American Idol' and 'X Factor' shows, they're great shows. But I think I need to make a show like that, directed straight to the hood, to the artists that don't get the attention, that don't have the money to make themselves representable.
I don't harp on the negative because if you do, then there's no progression. There's no forward movement. You got to always look on the bright side of things, and we are in control. Like, you have control over the choices you make.
Taraji P. Henson

I destroy my enemies when I make them my friends.
I have a feeling that I make a very good friend, and I'm a good mother, and a good sister, and a good citizen. I am involved in life itself - all of it. And I have a lot of energy and a lot of nerve.
Sometimes God will deliver you from the fire, and other times God will make you fireproof.
I don't see the point of doing an interview unless you're going to share the things you learn in life and the mistakes you make.

I think it actually is the right thing to do, and I'd like to think it's the nice thing to do.
We need to change the culture of this topic and make it OK to speak about mental health and suicide.
