In reality, both religion and science are expressions of man's uncertainty. Perhaps the paradox is that certainty, whether it be in science or religion, is dangerous.
Celebrity has lost its value - all you have to do is go on a reality TV show for six weeks and everybody knows your name.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers
I think I'm a bit of a dreamer. I don't like the reality of life to impinge much on my life.
