People might say I’m difficult, but did you ever hear anyone describe a label as ‘difficult’? By nature, artists should challenge. When they call you difficult, it is a reflection of the imbalance of power.
Labels only confuse people. The smarter people recognize artists who transcend categories. But I always try to entertain. It’s in my nature; writers are born to entertain. If that means working ostensibly within a genre, fine.
I’m cursed with empathy. I’m also by nature way too opinionated.
Pity those who nature abuses; never those who abuse nature.
Only nature knows how to justly proportion to the fault the punishment it deserves.
The very winds whispered in soothing accents, and maternal Nature bade me weep no more.
Most of nature is inherently chaotic. It’s not rigidly determined in the old sense. It’s not rigidly predictable.
The idea is that there is a kind of memory in nature. Each kind of thing has a collective memory. So, take a squirrel living in New York now. That squirrel is being influenced by all past squirrels.
I admire people who are, by nature, kind and fair to others.
It often happens that when a person possesses a particular ability to an extraordinary degree, nature makes up for it by leaving him or her incompetent in every other department.
I think that some of our soldiers die in the battlefield and some come home to bad health and die prematurely, just by the nature of the kind of business they’re in.
Unfortunately, little attention was paid to how Arafat ruled. In fact, some saw the harsh and repressive nature of Arafat’s regime as actually bolstering the prospects for peace.
To understand why dictators have a problem with making peace – or at least a genuine peace – the link between the nature of a regime and its external behavior must be understood.
When a girl’s under 21, she’s protected by law. When she’s over 65, she’s protected by nature. Anywhere in between she’s fair game.
I eventually saw the satirical nature of caricaturing individuals.
I like going into nature and that’s where I’m happiest.
