God had brought me to my knees and made me acknowledge my own nothingness, and out of that knowledge I had been reborn. I was no longer the centre of my life and therefore I could see God in everything.
I was as alone as a person can be. I could not turn to a friend, for nobody wished to befriend me. I was toxic, and everyone knew it. To be near me was to be near hardship. Wise people stayed far away. I was alone, atop a mountain of rage. Why was I made to wear these awful scars?

I am, as I am; whether hideous, or handsome, depends upon who is made judge.

If God had wanted us to be concerned for the plight of the toads, he would have made them cute and furry.
I do what I do, and write what I write, without calculating what is worth what and so on. Fortunately, I am not a banker or an accountant. I feel that there is a time when a political statement needs to be made and I make it.

A career is like a house: it’s made of many bricks, and each brick has the same value, because without any one of them, the house would collapse.

Gratitude is a burden, and every burden is made to be shaken off.
God already knows what we’re made of, but perhaps He wants us to learn what we’re made of. I think we would all agree that we learn more from our tough times than from our easy times.
People’s dreams are made out of what they do all day. The same way a dog that runs after rabbits will dream of rabbits. It’s what you do that makes your soul, not the other way around.

Enjoying art is a personal matter. It’s made up by contemplation, silence, abstraction.
I made odd noises as a child. Just did weird things, like turn off light switches twice. I think my parents thought I had Tourette’s syndrome.
I wasn’t brought up with any religion at all. At school and in my early 20s, I read every religious text I could get my hands on – Buddhist scriptures, Hindu texts, the Qur’an, and the Bible. I wanted to feel like something made sense to me, that there was something sacred I could feel aligned with.
If I had permitted my failures, or what seemed to me at the time a lack of success, to discourage me I cannot see any way in which I would ever have made progress.
Science, my lad, is made up of mistakes, but they are mistakes which it is useful to make, because they lead little by little to the truth.

Financially, I’ve lost money and made money, but I know my way around financially.
The first time I made any money, I was 27. I went to Bergdorf’s looking like a proper guttersnipe and bought a pair of Louboutins. I’d wear them and an old ink-stained kimono and make my drawings and feel indomitable.

Like love, breakfast is best when made at home.
War is hugely profitable. It creates so much money because it’s so easy to spend money very fast. There are huge fortunes to be made. So there is always an encouragement to promote war and keep it going, to make sure that we identify people who are ‘others’ whom we can legitimately make war upon.
Money has never made man happy, nor will it, there is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more of it one has the more one wants.

Laws made by common consent must not be trampled on by individuals.
I am a most noteworthy sinner, but I have cried out to the Lord for grace and mercy, and they have covered me completely. I have found the sweetest consolation since I made it my whole purpose to enjoy His marvellous Presence.

I’ve had this terrible stomach problem for years, and that has made touring difficult. People would see me sitting in the corner by myself looking sick and gloomy.

There are still many causes worth sacrificing for, so much history yet to be made.
