Naturally, obviously, nudity is a part of life.
I've been deeply influenced by Aristotle's idea that virtue is a habit, something you practice and get better at, rather than something that comes naturally. 'The control of the appetites by right reason,' is how he defined it.
It's not so much that I got that idea at some point, it came up naturally because of the improvisational nature of the story I was telling.
Minorities within nation-states frayed by global capitalism are naturally more resentful of hollowed-out but still heavily centralised systems of political and economic domination.
I find writing songs hard, because it does not come naturally to me. I never set out to be a songwriter or a singer.
One of the disadvantages of poetry over popular music is that if you write a pop song, it naturally gets into people's heads as they listen in the car. You don't have to memorize a Paul Simon song; it's just in your head, and you can sing along. With a poem, you have to will yourself to memorize it.
I'm not really a competitive person, and I'm not naturally comfortable in front of people.
I'm naturally a nice person. I'm not trying to have any problems with people. I'm done with the drama and trouble. I want a stress-free life.
I wasn't a naturally confident, extravert, outgoing person.
I was not naturally intellectual, but somebody whose interest had to be whetted, still the case sadly.
There are no tests similar to SATs to tell us how much undergraduates know. State legislators, who appropriate billions of dollars each year to higher education, are naturally interested in finding out what they are getting for their money.
I'm addicted to 'Lonely Planet' guides. Naturally, I'll buy one whenever I take a trip somewhere, but it goes beyond that: I've begun buying them for cities and countries I just hope to visit one day.
When you make a lot of money for a record company, they don't want you to evolve. Growing older, you naturally do.
A lifetime of low calories has come naturally to the longest-lived people in the world... in the Japanese archipelago of Okinawa.
S. Jay Olshansky
I am always plagued with 'I'm not skinny enough, I'm not in shape.' I am not naturally this super-svelte kind of girl. I'm okay with that in my personal life. But it is kind of hard at times. I feel inadequate, I suppose?
I had been playing since I was 2 years old, never remembering a life without music, always playing everything naturally and mostly by ear, and all the grownups wanted were more scales and drudgery out of me.
Lara St. John
I do try to let what is obviously unintended yet naturally good stay in.
My hair is naturally really thin and dead straight, with no movement.
As you get older, you have to fix your insides, because your face naturally gets a little crabby-looking, so if you're thinking mean thoughts, you look doubly mean when you get older. You can't hide it.
You don't have to work hard to bring emotions. It all just comes naturally, you're there living it.

I like doing comedy, I like doing drama. Naturally I like to do, I like doing dramas, I like conflict, and when I do a comedy, you know, I've found that, like, romantic comedy is the trickiest one, because often it's neither: it's not romantic and it's not funny. So, like, I like a comedy that's biting. It's biting humor or really quirky humor.
You've got to go down the road you naturally go down, and for me it was pop, folk country, just feel-good music. I suppose most of my songs are very up-tempo.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
