Quote of the Day
I don't like definitions, but if there is a definition of freedom, it would be when you have control over your reality to transform it, to change it, rather than having it imposed upon you. You can't really ask for more than.
In art, scandal is a false narrative, a smoke screen that camouflages rather than reveals. When we don't know what we're seeing, we overreact.
Although I adore the Italian High Renaissance, I'd rather look at Mannerism. The former is ordered, integrated, otherworldly, and grandiose; it leaves you feeling hungry for something flawed and of-the-flesh.
The giant white cube is now impeding rather than enhancing the rhythms of art. It preprograms a viewer's journey, shifts the emphasis from process to product, and lacks individuality and openness. It's not that art should be seen only in rutty bombed-out environments, but it should seem alive.
I would rather excel others in the knowledge of what is excellent than in the extent of my powers and dominion.
Alexander the Great
Patience is the most necessary quality for business, many a man would rather you heard his story than grant his request.
The motto should not be: Forgive one another; rather understand one another.
In five years' time I'd like to be a mum. I want to settle down and have a family, definitely sooner rather than later. I'd like to have finished my second album too, maybe even my third. I'd like a sound that sticks around that other people are inspired by and that people know is me.
Mourn for me rather as living than as dead.
I see my body as an instrument, rather than an ornament.
I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy.
I find it rather easy to portray a businessman. Being bland, rather cruel and incompetent comes naturally to me.
The only thing Martha and I have in common is that we both used to model. Martha Stewart is extremely talented. Her designs are picture perfect. Our philosophy is life is messy, and rather than being afraid of those messes we design products that work the way we live.
I'd rather wear jewels in my hair than anywhere else. The face should have the advantage of this brilliance.
I think its rather peculiar. It's not in keeping with our founding documents, our founding vision. But I'd guess you'd have to ask the Obama administration why they purged all this language from their platform. There sure is a lot of mention of government, so I guess I would put the onus on them to answer why they did all these purges of God.
As soon as someone tells me: 'You're rather sexy,' I wish I could disappear. If somebody says: 'You were voted the world's sexiest man,' I have no idea what that means. How do I respond? 'Thank you' is the best you can do. George Clooney is the world's sexiest man, anyway.
People don't like other poor people, and rather than blame the people that make you all poor, you blame each other.
In a drama of the highest order there is little food for censure or hatred; it teaches rather self-knowledge and self-respect.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Great discoveries and improvements invariably involve the cooperation of many minds. I may be given credit for having blazed the trail, but when I look at the subsequent developments I feel the credit is due to others rather than to myself.
Alexander Graham Bell
I would rather be with my kids than anybody else.
Louis C. K.

One can't paint New York as it is, but rather as it is felt.

It is only in appearance that time is a river. It is rather a vast landscape and it is the eye of the beholder that moves.
I can't look in the mirror and look at fake things. I just can't. I'd rather age.
