In the world of language, or in other words in the world of art and liberal education, religion necessarily appears as mythology or as Bible.
Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
It's no secret that I've always had an interest in mythology. Whether it's Arthurian or ancient Greek or even Marvel universe. I've always connected with it on some level.

Well, the ones who don't survive may be just as brave, you know, just as courageous, wonderful people.
I never minded giving my opinions. They are just opinions, and I had studied music and I had strong feelings. I was happy for my opinions to join all the other opinions. But you have to be prepared for what comes back, especially if you don't agree with the dominant mythology.
You have one big mythology in your favor: Everyone believes that you Europeans are impeccable. But I know you are jerks.
I am inclined to think that the realm of mythology is where the Yeti rightly belongs.

I walk the streets, take the train, it's real simple. Some actors create their own mythology: 'Oh, I'm so famous I can't go places, because I created this mythology that I'm so famous I can't go places.'
Samuel L. Jackson
I think we have a great deal of mythology around writing. We believe that only a few people can really do it. I wrote a book called 'The Right to Write.' In it, I argued that all of us have the capacity to write. That it's as normal to write as it is to speak.
For Gore 2000, I was a formal campaign adviser: contrary to RNC mythology, my brief was not 'wardrobe,' but rather policy on women's issues, and messaging. I was also married to a Clinton speechwriter, and observed the message decision-making process from the perspective of a spouse.

I took physics, and lo and behold, there's a lot of physics in 'Lost.'

I also took some Folklore and Mythology classes, and I think that a lot of that influenced me.
A culture without mythology is not really a civilisation.
Vilayanur S. Ramachandran
