The fact that more people have been slaughtered in the name of religion than any other single reason. That, that my friends, that is true perversion!
All men are created equal. No matter how hard they try, they can never erase those words. That is what America is about.
If you are not personally free to be yourself in that most important of all human activities … the expression of love … then life itself loses its meaning.

There were no role models, there were no other people I knew who were dealing with the same issues that I was dealing with. I had no idea if this was a stage I was going through or not. But I go to the draft board in Brooklyn and I fill out the form and there was a question that said ‘Do you have homosexual tendencies?’ and I check yes. But where-ever I was on line I’d see people I went to high school with and I was afraid of anyone knowing this about me so I kept on falling back into line and falling back into line. If you said you had homosexual tendencies they sent you to a psychiatrist. He said ‘I see here you’ve checked the box?’ And I said ‘yup’. He said ‘So do you think you’d have a problem serving in the armed forces?’ I said well you know ‘So many men.’ And I was out of the service.
Let your mind wander in the pure and simple. Be one with the infinite. Let all things take their course.
I did not breeze in there thinking: Im going to nail this. My heart rate was not low when I was doing the Golden Globes. I wanted to do well. Its very bizarre to be in a room where everybody in your audience is famous. But also: its an awards show!
What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.
If you’re proactive, you don’t have to wait for circumstances or other people to create perspective expanding experiences. You can consciously create your own.
In a lot of ways it is easier to do things on a large scale. It is easier to build a skyscraper in Manhattan than it is to buy a bungalow in the Bronx. For one thing, it takes just as much time to close a big deal as it does to close a small deal. You will endure as much stress and aggravation; you will have all the same headaches and problems. It is easier to finance a big deal. Bankers would much rather lend money for a big project than for a small one. They are more comfortable investing money in a big prestigious building than they are a rundown house in a bad section of town. If you succeed with the big project, you stand to gain a lot more money.
