My focus is always on the day. What I've done behind me I try to have respect for it and keep an eye on it and make sure it isn't abused and obviously be thoughtful about it because it's all real to me. I'm basically in every band I ever was in and the songs I still mean them all.
First and foremost I'm a feminist. And basically that stems from a strong belief that all people and creatures deserve equal opportunity rights and respect.
Basically fundamentalism is a modern phenomenon. In the same way that Hitler evoked a mythological religion of German purity and the glory of the past the Islamists use religion to evoke emotions and passions in people who have been oppressed for a long time in order to reach their purpose.
The basic assumption of the secular society is that modernity overcomes religion.
So basically my view is I don't want to support the exploitation of animals and within reason I will do what I can to avoid it but it's not like it's a religion for me. It's not like I consider I'm polluted if somehow some bit of milk or cheese or something passes my lips.
It's interesting now that basically a CG set is the same cost as a real set. So like if you're going to build a CG house in the suburbs it costs you $200 000. And if you were going to build it in a computer it'll cost you $200 000. It's the same... the relationship is exactly the same.
There are a few writers that one has a relationship with that means basically you do whatever they say. One is Caryl Churchill and the other is David Hare.
My parents had this relationship that was really terrifying. I mean the level of hatred that they had and the level of physical abuse - my mother would beat up my father basically - and I think I was drawn to images on television that were bright and reflective.
To pass from estrangement from God to be a son of God is the basic fact of conversion. That altered relationship with God gives you an altered relationship with yourself with your brother man with nature with the universe.
The basic discovery about any people is the discovery of the relationship between men and women.
The simplest and most basic meaning of the symbol of the Goddess is the acknowledgment of the legitimacy of female power as a beneficent and independent power.
I think it's child abuse to have someone in the public eye too young. Society basically values wealth and fame and power at the cost of well-being. In the case of a child it's at the cost of someone's natural development. It's already hard enough to develop.
A buoyant positive approach to the game is as basic as a sound swing.
President Obama has basically avoided or not done any attempt to intervene in any positive way in the housing market. I think in the financial crisis that's been a shame.
With everything that's thrown at you whether it be problems at home problems at work - whatever - basically if you remain positive you can see your way out of that.
On the show we are not trying to get people to eat their vegetables we are not trying to get people to become Democrats. We are basically trying to encourage people to get involved with public life so that politics isn't left to the wealthy and privileged.
I came into music because I thought the presentation of poetry wasn't vibrant enough. So I merged improvised poetry with basic rock chords.
You know I think I think the Palestinians are trying to get away without negotiating. They're trying to get a state to continue the conflict with Israel rather than to end it. They're trying to basically detour around peace negotiations by going to the U.N. and have the automatic majority in the U.N. General Assembly give them give them a state.
If in our daily life we can smile if we can be peaceful and happy not only we but everyone will profit from it. This is the most basic kind of peace work.
America is a Nation with a mission - and that mission comes from our most basic beliefs. We have no desire to dominate no ambitions of empire. Our aim is a democratic peace - a peace founded upon the dignity and rights of every man and woman.
The basic problem with my love relationships with women is that my standards are so high - and they apply equally to both of us. I seek full-blast mutual intensity fully fledged mutual acceptance full-blown mutual flourishing and fully felt peace and joy with each other. This requires a level of physical attraction personal adoration and moral admiration that is hard to find.
I've become sort of an accidental advocate for attachment parenting which is a style of parenting that... basically the way mammals parent and the way people have parented for pretty much all of human history except the last 200 years or so.
Is human nature basically good or evil? No economist can embark upon his profession without considering this question and yet they all seem to. And they all seem to think human nature is basically good or they wouldn't be surprised by the effects of deregulation.
Greed is a basic part of animal nature. Being against it is like being against breathing or eating. It means nothing.
