Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.
My attitude to peace is rather based on the Burmese definition of peace - it really means removing all the negative factors that destroy peace in this world. So peace does not mean just putting an end to violence or to war, but to all other factors that threaten peace, such as discrimination, such as inequality, poverty.
Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple definitions; there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that's why it is so complicated.
People are pretty much alike. It's only that our differences are more susceptible to definition than our similarities.
Good character consists of recognizing the selfishness that inheres in each of us and trying to balance it against the altruism to which we should all aspire. It is a difficult balance to strike, but no definition of goodness can be complete without it.
There is no definition of beauty, but when you can see someone's spirit coming through, something unexplainable, that's beautiful to me.
My definition of a friend is somebody who adores you even though they know the things you're most ashamed of.
America is an empire. I hope you know that now. All empires, by definition, are bumbling, shambolic, bullying, bureaucratic affairs, as certain of the rightness of their cause in infancy, as they are corrupted by power in their dotage.
I guess I'm attracted to more archaic words because they can be imbued with more meaning, because their definition is elusive.
My parents wanted to light my artistic candle. But over time, the definition of 'the arts' began to stretch. And as I got older, they suddenly realized, Oh, my God, we're the parents of Iggy Pop.
