Changing things from the top down works when things are stable.
I like writing a joke, and I like when a joke works, and I like other comics who tell jokes.
It's luck that one thing works out and one doesn't, it's sort of happenstance.
Art is very tricky because it's what you do for yourself. It's much harder for me to make those works than the monuments or the architecture.
Surely in a world of email, video conferencing and virtual assistants, isn't being expected to show up at the office extremely anachronistic? Yet to date it seems that where one works does matter. That creativity and innovation do feed off physical interactions between people.
I decided that I was going to be the Kennedy who makes her own name and finds her own job and works like a dog. My comeuppance was when Arnold got elected - I became the Kennedy who was married to the governor.
If some of our works are symphonies, then wrapped walkways was chamber music.
Given the trendlines of digital publishing, where more and more large platforms are profiting from, and controlling, the works of individuals, I can't stress enough: Put your taproot in the independent web. Use the platforms for free distribution (they're using you for free content, after all). And make sure you link back to your own domain.
Polling only works in a country without a depressed, frightened populace. Where the public trusts authorities enough to tell them the truth without fear of retribution.

I fell in love with Shakespeare when I was 12, and I read the whole works. Yes, I was precocious.
Neuroscience is exciting. Understanding how thoughts work, how connections are made, how the memory works, how we process information, how information is stored - it's all fascinating.
One person goes off and works in Houston the other person goes off to London and you're on the phone to each other and somebody is paying you to kiss somebody else. It's very bizarre being an actor.

I think every fantasy reader secretly believes they know how magic works.
I just say I'm an artist who works with pictures and words.
Hierarchy works well in a stable environment.
With a painter or a sculptor, one cannot begin to alter his works, but an architect has to put up with anything, because he makes utility objects - the building is there to be used, and times change.
If we ever find out how the brain works, with all its complexity, then we will be able to build a machine that has consciousness. And if that happens, that is a road to planetary disaster because everything we've thought about ourselves, since the Bronze Age, the Bible, all of that will be gone.
E. L. Doctorow

Leonardo da Vinci
