Teaching is a very noble profession that shapes the character, caliber, and future of an individual. If the people remember me as a good teacher, that will be the biggest honour for me.
You learn different things through fiction. Historians are always making a plot about how certain things came to happen. Whereas a novelist looks at tiny little things and builds up a sort of map, like a painting, so that you see the shapes of things.
Geniuses come in many shapes and colors, and they often run in packs. If you can find one, it may lead you to others. Collaborate with geniuses. Send them your spells. Look carefully at theirs. What could you do together? Combination is creation.
If a group of people feels that it has been humiliated and that its honour has been trampled underfoot, it will want to express its identity and this expression of an identity will take different shapes and forms.
People often believe that character causes action, but when it comes to producing moral children, we need to remember that action also shapes character.
It has to be something people prioritize - it should be the number-one priority: representing all types of beauty, all types of shapes and sizes.
Everything shapes you to be the person you are today. Sometimes hard lessons pay off dividends.
Fashion doesn't look good only on models; it can look good on different people of different ages and different body shapes.
In high fashion, we're always accused of doing things that are not very relevant, not the real world. I know that it's important sometimes to do fantasy, but I felt like touching people and going back to different women and men, especially the idea of different ages and body shapes.
To me there's no difference between a book of stories and a novel - they're just slightly different shapes.
