When works of art are presented like rare butterflies on the walls, they're decontextualized. We admire their beauty, and I have nothing against that, per se. But there is more to art than that.
I understand the rules of Superman - not necessarily better than anyone else - but better than a normal filmmaker would. After doing 'Watchmen' and digging that deep into the why of superheroes, when Superman is presented to you, I felt like I was in a unique position to say 'I get this guy. I know what this is.'
God reigns when we take a liberal view, when a liberal view is presented to us.
Henry David Thoreau

The most creative people are motivated by the grandest of problems that are presented before them.
Neil deGrasse Tyson

Almost nothing is presented to you on a silver platter. You have to really work for it.
