The Wisdom of Daniel Day-Lewis


One of the great privileges of having grown up in a middle-class literary English household, but having gone to school in the front lines in Southeast London, was that I became half-street-urchin and half-good-boy at home. I knew that dichotomy was possible. ~ Daniel Day-Lewis

The Wisdom of Kim Gordon


Women make natural anarchists and revolutionaries because they've always been second-class citizens, kinda having had to claw their way up. I mean, who made up all the rules in the culture? Men - white male corporate society. So why wouldn't a woman want to rebel against that? ~ Kim Gordon

The Wisdom of Kevin James


I had many teachers that were great, positive role models and taught me to be a good person and stand up and be a good man. A lot of the principals they taught me still affect how I act sometimes and it's 30 years later. ~ Kevin James

The Wisdom of Dinesh D'Souza


Christianity is the fastest-growing religion in the world; Islam is the second. It's spreading in Asia, Africa, and South America. So the world is in a kind of religious revival, and the atheists are totally flummoxed. They thought they were winning, and now they see that they aren't. ~ Dinesh D'Souza

The Wisdom of Willem de Kooning


My interest in desperation lies only in that sometimes I find myself having become desperate. Very seldom do I start out that way. I can see of course that, in the abstract, thinking and all activity is rather desperate. ~ Willem de Kooning

The Wisdom of Caroline Thompson


I would be happy to be labeled as a writer of offbeat stories. I don't know how to do anything else. ~ Caroline Thompson
