I try to find the core values that are so fundamental that they transcend ethnic identity. That doesn't mean I run from it. I embrace African-American culture and I love it and embrace it, but it is a part of a human identity. So I'm always trying to make a larger human statement.
I see things like they've never been seen before. Art is an accurate statement of the time in which it is made.
Wearing a bow tie is a statement. Almost an act of defiance.
The elder who is eliminating what time has done to the face, what life has done to the face, is making a statement for others to see: This is the way to be a good old person - it is to defeat this body that is doing things to you. Because you haven't changed. Your body's changing.
When you put gas in your car you are making a political statement, because you are supporting the empires that control and continue the destruction of some countries.

I've made this statement many times: If I would have to do it over again, I would have made known the forthcoming Tet Offensive.
Any seeming deception in a statement is costly, not only in the expense of the advertising but in the detrimental effect produced upon the customer, who believes she has been misled.
NPR fired me for telling the truth. The truth is that I worry when I am getting on an airplane and see people dressed in garb that identifies them first and foremost as Muslims. This is not a bigoted statement. It is a statement of my feelings, my fears after the terrorist attacks of 9/11 by radical Muslims.
I think it's sexy when someone makes a statement that says, 'This is who I am. This is what I think is sexy.'

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
