You can Google everyone now, you don’t have to peek through a window or wait till she leaves her house. You can look at her Instagram, she’s takes selfies, posting images of her body parts for everyone to see. She seeks followers and craves attention to define her self worth.

Putin has made life difficult for a lot of Russia’s richest men; they don’t like the sanctions; they don’t like the war with the West.

The first time I went over to [my director’s] house, he said to me, This is a very strange play. I was pleased that he reminded me of that. [He] understands the play [VENUS] intellectually and emotionally and the humor, the funny bone.

Repetition and ritual and their good results come in many forms: changing the oil filter, wiping noses, going to meetings, picking up around the house, washing dishes, checking the dipstick . . . such a round of chores is not a set of difficulties we hope to escape from so that we may do our practice, which will put us on the path.
