It is in literature that the concrete outlook of humanity receives its expression.
The Zionist movement gave political expression to our claim to the land of Israel. And in 1922, the League of Nations recognized the justice of this claim.
I’ve long been interested in looking at the culture of consumerism and also was interested in this connection between the American dream and the house, and the house being kind of the ultimate expression of self and success.
I do have my ducks in line if I want to do it, but I’d love to see the Republicans pick somebody that was going to win and take over this country and frankly, to use the expression, ‘Make America great again.’
I have an expression I use as I’ve gone around the world through my career: ‘You never tell another man or woman what’s in their interest. They know their interest better than you know their interest.’
I think it would be funny for people to read in obituaries of me that my major contribution to the arts was the popularization of the phrases ‘neutral facial expression’ and ‘screaming in agony.’
At the end of the day, makeup comes off whether you’re a man or a woman; why discriminate against men, when makeup is such an amazing form of artistic expression, just because society says it’s not ‘normal?’
When women are told that sexual harassment is ‘part of the job’ or when assistants of both sexes enable harassing behavior, they have bought into the culture that says such behavior is not just permissible, it is a desirable expression of power.
Freedom of expression, innovation, and choice drive our economy.
I think that literature is something that embraces a much larger experience than politics. It’s an expression of what is life, of what are all the dimensions of life. But politics is one among others.
Our lives are the only meaningful expression of what we believe and in Whom we believe. And the only real wealth, for any of us, lies in our faith.
I don’t think that people are disinterested or uninterested in politics. I think very often they are disengaged from the formal political process. To some extent they are suspicious or even despairing of formal politics as a means to give expression and effect to what they want.

Art is where we make a stand. If we don’t make it there, freedom of expression is lost for everyone – for artists, for journalists, and for everyday people.
If I were a carpenter, I’d find a way to empower using that skill. I’m using as much as God has given – my mind, my voice, my heart, my art forms. This is the highest form of expression on the planet from God, to me, to you.

Viewed narrowly, all life is universal hunger and an expression of energy associated with it.
My hypothesis is not so much that the court is the natural expression of popular justice, but rather that its historical function is to ensnare it, to control it and strangle it, by re-inscribing it within institutions which are typical of a state apparatus.
When you tell people you’re a playwright, their eyes sort of glaze over. But when you say you write the ‘Fantastic Four’ or ‘Spider-Man,’ they perk up. It’s a touchstone that has gained more credibility as artistic expression.
My attitude is always one of sensuality, aggressive enthusiasm and a kind of outrageousness in my expression.
