God used beautiful mathematics in creating the world.

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

I should like to suggest to you that the cause of all the economic troubles is that we have an economic system which tries to maintain an equality of value between two things, which it would be better to recognise from the beginning as of unequal value.

The methods of theoretical physics should be applicable to all those branches of thought in which the essential features are expressible with numbers.

The fundamental laws necessary for the mathematical treatment of a large part of physics and the whole of chemistry are thus completely known, and the difficulty lies only in the fact that application of these laws leads to equations that are too complex to be solved.

The shortage of buyers, which the world is suffering from, is readily understood, not as due to people not wishing to obtain possession of goods, but as people being unwilling to part with something which might earn a regular income in exchange for those goods.

There is in my opinion a great similarity between the problems provided by the mysterious behavior of the atom and those provided by the present economic paradoxes confronting the world.

I do not see how a man can work on the frontiers of physics and write poetry at the same time. They are in opposition.

It seems that if one is working from the point of view of getting beauty in one's equations, and if one has really a sound insight, one is on a sure line of progress.

I can enjoy anywhere, and I can leave it. Life is about moving on.

Brooklyn's good. Brooklyn's funky. Brooklyn's happening.

Every day, women move mountains. It is an insult to have an international women's day.

I belong nowhere and to no one.

I don't know what a supermodel is. If they call me that, I might have to punch them. It's just so vain and so unreal.

I love the truth. Tell the truth and live the truth, because we've seen enough lies and look what it's doing.

I've never been one to stay still. I was born a nomad, and I still am a nomad and always will be.

Personal style? I don't really believe in that. Whatever is comfortable.

Sometimes I wonder where I am from. I am either way ahead or I come from another world. I don't recognise this world.

Because women and girls are not valued equally as human beings, they are treated as less than such. Female genital mutilation is one example of this that has to be stopped.

Fashion is fun, ridiculously fun. But it's base and it's wrong. You're not doing anything good for the world. You're just saying, 'Buy it, buy it, buy it.'

Tags: Fun, Good, Saying

Female genital mutilation targets little girls, baby girls - fragile angels who are helpless, who cannot fight back. It's a crime against a child, a crime against humanity. It's abuse. It's absolutely criminal and we have to stop it.

I love life. I wish I could live another 500 years, truly. There is so much to do. I don't feel bitter or angry or disappointed. If anything, I am very grateful for where I come from. I have absolutely no regrets.

I still do find it very difficult in the West to connect to this politeness of smiling, not saying how you're thinking or not saying how you really feel.

If you can survive in the desert, you survive anywhere. I know more than anything life in desert. You can tell by looking at the dirt how long ago it rained, how hard it rained, how much water came through. You can by looking at a plant, a tree, from an animal's look. I can read the desert like I read my hand.
