My forms are not abstractions of things in the real world. They're also not symbols. I would say that my job is to invent these forms and to put them together in a way that keeps your interest, to give the forms a quirky identity so you can engage with them, so you realize there's an inner intelligence or logic.
My forms are geometric, but they don't interact in a geometric sense. They're just forms that exist everywhere, even if you don't see them.
My former wife made me a millionaire. I used to have three million dollars.
My former wife is a very eccentric woman, which is why I still love her.
My former wife is a truly wonderful person.
My former master taught me to accept birth and death. Then what have you come to me for? asked the master. To learn to accept what lies in between.
My former health minister, Kamran Bagheri Lankarani, is like a peach. I love to eat him.
My former coach, Simen Agdestein, used to be the best player in Norway.
My former bullies pay extra to come backstage and meet me after shows, and I pretend not to know them in front of their friends. It is the most divine pleasure to exact the revenge of the brutalized child that resides within.
My former assistant used to tell me I have a problem with cushions and she was totally right. The reason is because I'm constantly rearranging things in my house. And if I can't move a whole piece of furniture, the easiest thing to rearrange is cushions. I like to keep things fresh.
My formative years, until I was 12, was all shaped by Jamaican culture, by that economy, by the people in my family, who are agriculturalists, who were plantation workers, who harvested those crops and took them down to the boats run by the United Food Company, to load those ships at night, hence all the songs that I sing that come from that environment.
My formative years would be in South Central Los Angeles. It was a really volatile environment, but, I always say, when you're living in the hood, you don't live this life where you're crying every day, downtrodden every day.
My formative years were all about 'Star Wars' -- the first three, not the last crap, obviously. I understood 'Star Trek' but it was too caricatured for me.
My formal education as an extension to my college degree in journalism was the time that I spent working with the student newspaper. I would argue that my greatest education occurred by working for the student newspaper. It wasn't necessarily the classroom work that made my formal education special. It was the idea that I had the opportunity to practice it before I went into the real world.
My form is more on the lines of a Chinese porcelain-jar juggler. They learn it as a child. They learn, learn, learn, learn -- but not with a porcelain jar. Then, when they're ready to perform, they're taken to a museum, and they're given a porcelain jar for a lifetime to use. When they're done, it's returned to the museum.
My forgiving you doesn't make my heart hurt less. It takes awhile to heal.
My forehead is sometimes too high, but bangs could correct this.
My foregrounds are imaginary, my backgrounds real.
My forebears were fantastically wealthy Armenians who came to England from India in the 19th century and did what foreign types do -- they married into a penniless but well-bred local family.
