It's not just parliament that requires radical modernisation. It's our democratic processes.
If I do three interviews in a day, I can be exhausted, because the process of hearing everyone requires that I empty out myself. While I'm listening, my own judgments and prejudices certainly come up. But I know I won't get anything unless I get those things out of the way.
Anna Deavere Smith

Jonathan Safran Foer
Being gay is not a terrible, tragic disease that requires prevention or treatment chosen for you by your parents.
Bringing democratic control to the conduct of foreign policy requires a struggle merely to force the issue onto the public agenda.
I think a child requires initial years of a mother's attention, which is very important, and I did it without any thought in the world. That's what I wanted to do.
Enjoying fiction requires a shift in selfhood. You give up your own identity and try on the identities of other people, adopting their perspectives so as to share their experiences. This allows us to enjoy fictional events that would shock and sadden us in real life.
Since natural selection requires a function to select, an irreducibly complex biological system, if there is such a thing, would have to arise as an integrated unit for natural selection to have anything to act on.

It's hard to see yourself as a princess because it involves a huge leap of the imagination and sort of requires you to believe you can be that, which is a scary, weird thing.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
