Being a Christian has not and does not come naturally or easy for me. I take that to be a good thing because I am sure that to be a Christian requires training that lasts a lifetime.
I think it is a mistake to focus - as we most often do - only on the sacrifice of life that war requires. War also requires that we sacrifice our normal unwillingness to kill.
Cooking is an art, but all art requires knowing something about the techniques and materials. Using modernist techniques, you get more control, and that allows you to be more artistic, not less!
To create jobs, a modern economy requires modern investments.
But any perception of this application being speeded up requires me to take responsibility.
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
An increasingly multipolar world requires an entirely different kind of U.S. foreign policy: far from being unilateralist, it necessitates a complex form of power-sharing on both a global and regional basis.
In business, staying focused requires that you turn most opportunities down.
Living on a planet of fixed size requires compromise, and while we are the only party capable of negotiating, we are not the only party at the table. We've never claimed more, and we've never had less.
Jonathan Safran Foer
Being gay is not a terrible, tragic disease that requires prevention or treatment chosen for you by your parents.

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.
That said, ID does not qualify as science because it gives us nothing to test or measure. Science requires replicable tests involving measurable variables.
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.
As a writer, I have to go to a different place now. As a person... I want to step off whatever this stage is that I have been given. The argument has been made, the battle remains to be fought - and that requires a different set of skills.
Politics requires the sense of possibility. Dare I say it - the audacity of hope.
Yahoo is free, it's fast and it's Web-centric. AOL is slow, it costs money and requires proprietary software.

A stage play requires very different craft from a book, fiction or otherwise, and ditto from a screenplay.
The prosperity of a nation requires the protection of a senate. Hereafter a national senate may require the protection of a national army.
Thomas Francis Meagher
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.
Writing is very much an emotional process; it requires you to be very in touch with your feelings. That is the opposite of what you're taught as a medical doctor. We're supposed to be detached and logical. Maybe because I started off as a writer and then became a doctor, I'm able to integrate those two.
Congress requires states to draw single-member districts.
Thomas E. Mann
C. S. Lewis
John F. Kennedy
