For me, the dumbest rule is that you can't chew gum in school. For some reason, chewing gum for me gets my brain going.
For me, the end of childhood came when the number of candles on my birthday cake no longer reflected my age, around 19 or 20. From then on, each candle came to represent an entire decade.
For me, the entire journey of Lost has been walking that fine line between discovering Sawyer's humanity and, yet, keeping his edge of anger and destructiveness. He's been through every situation possible, emotionally and physically. Sometimes, it's been scary to get in touch with his growth, especially his relationship with Juliet. I really thought the audience might reject the softer side of Sawyer we saw in that. As for what will happen with him and Kate, all I can say is they have a love that is undeniable, but maybe it must be denied.
For me, the ethical arguments that resonate strongest are the ones that oppose the death penalty.
For me, the excitement in architecture revolves around the idea and the phenomenon of the experience of that idea. Residences offer almost immediate gratification. You can shape space, light, and materials to a degree that you sometimes can't in larger projects.
For me, the existence of nonexistence of God is a nonissue.
For me, the experience of making the show is very much like being in a novel. I enjoy getting the new script. I make a cup of tea and I read it the same way I would read a book, with the same amount of joy.
For me, the facts in anything are always secondary. You don't lie convincingly with the truth. You lie convincingly with being a good liar.
For me, the fiction writer's job is to take the small, stupid process of learning to use an iPhone -- and suddenly you're the guy who's asking your daughter, When I go on Facebook, can it see me?
For me, the film has to be incredibly bad to make me want to pack up and leave.
For me, the filmmaking has to be about the dramaturgy.
For me, the first fact of human existence is the human body. But if you embrace the reality of the human body, you embrace mortality, and that is a very difficult thing for anything to do because the self-conscious mind cannot imagine non-existence. It's impossible to do.
For me, the first thing is to tell a good story.
For me, the focus are songs, which really get the audience moving.
For me, the food I like to make is the food I can enjoy all the time anytime. It's not too calculated or technical.
For me, the future isn't coming from the USA, like it was before.
For me, the future lives only here in my mind, as thoughts and images, just as the past does, and I love those thoughts and the world that it produces. I am entirely optimistic about the future.
For me, the game starts with starting pitching.
For me, the game would be to assume a very intelligent reader who can extrapolate a lot from a little. And that's become my definition of art; to get that pitch just right, where I can put a hint on page three, and the reader's ears go up a bit, as opposed to dropping it all on the first page.
