I think that ultimately – as I say to most of the people who are acquiring art – I can tell you my reality of a piece, but ultimately what’s more important will be yours. I can tell you what a piece means to me, but just as valid if not more is what it means to you.
The valid research for the future is on the inner side, on the spiritual side.

If you think you aren’t valid for whatever reason, let my existence and the way the world embraces my existence tell you that you are valid. You deserve to look, live, and walk through the world however you see fit. That’s why I find it extremely important to be so out, so black, and so myself.

Are you trivialising the sisterhood if you dye your hair or have your eyebrows threaded? I’d say the answer to that is no. But equally, it’s a perfectly valid feminist thing to say there is a certain amount of attention on a woman’s appearance, and I don’t wish that to be the focus or a distraction.
The real issue that I have is the erasure people are trying to do with my very valid feelings in regard to how plus-size and fat people are treated in fashion. The way that people just kind of overlook us and pretend that, you know, we don’t have style, that we aren’t trendy or fashionable. It’s dehumanizing.
I did business the same way President Lee did, and from what I read in the papers, the same way President Ma has done. But I have been charged for misuse and misappropriation. People need to learn at the most basic level that valid charges have not been brought against me.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh
The living werewolves have genuine needs and desires, which, though they may oppose ours, are valid. Even if they want to eat humans, you can’t really call them evil, any more than mice can call cats evil, or chickens can call humans evil. It’s all just a matter of where you’re standing.
If merely ‘feeling good’ could decide, drunkenness would be the supremely valid human experience.

I enjoy the work I do in comedies. It’s a valid test of your creative abilities.
Neck-down comedy was no longer valid after the 1980s alternative comedy revolution. Everything became about the cerebral. And with that came positive things – it helped get rid of some of the sexism and homophobia – but it also meant a lot of physical comedy was lost.
As soon as you write about climate change, the first attempt to discredit you is, ‘Well, you wrote this on a computer,’ or, ‘You took a plane to this conference.’ So your opinion isn’t valid.

In any job, you can come under attack or have a door slammed in your face. You do want to listen to critics; you don’t want to be in a cocoon and never change. Get a second opinion from coworkers and friends. Know that criticism can be valid, but don’t take it personally.
Culturally even, you have shows like ‘Friends’ or ‘Sex in the City’ that are imbibed along with like fairy stories, which are all about The One. Then we feel like we’re looking for it, and if relationships end, what we’ve experienced isn’t valid.

You need to know that you cannot control your feelings, and you cannot control your feelings about your feelings, but, as best as you can, intellectually understand that your feelings are valid and they’re okay and don’t try to stifle them or feel shame about them.
I’m not as successful as Pixar or Dreamworks, and that is disappointing to me, because I think my films are as valid as a Pixar film. I think there’s an audience for my films. I know there’s a market for someone like Quentin Tarantino, who basically does adult cartoons in live action.
I’ve taken pains to acknowledge that ergonomic pain is real and that ergonomics is valid.

To most people in the U.K., indeed throughout Western Europe, space exploration is primarily perceived as ‘what NASA does’. This perception is – in many respects – a valid one. Superpower rivalry during the Cold War ramped up U.S. and Soviet space efforts to a scale that Western Europe had no motive to match.
I can make a valid argument that Bobby Heenan is pro wrestling’s great performer.
One problem with ideas, however valid, is that they are static and impersonal, whereas a person is active and dynamic.

You can get along very well in this world by simply coming up with a quantity of reasonably valid statements.
B. F. Skinner

I am often invited to speak at colleges, and whenever I do Q and A’s, a question that inevitably comes up is, ‘How do you put up with the blogosphere?’ It’s a valid question, and I don’t really know what answer to give. The truth is that I don’t know what to do.
I have a daughter, and it’s a very bad message to send to my daughter that to be valid or accepted or to have value, you have to look a certain way. It’s all about appearance, and not about education and not about contributing. I think we’ve completely lost our way.
See, to me, rock’n’roll doesn’t have any point. It’s just fun. It has a million different angles and they’re all valid. But I think rock might be a world issue.

If my daughter’s going to go out in the winter with summer clothes, I’m gonna question it. And at some point, I assume, if the conversation goes on long enough, if I can convince her, she will put on some warm clothes. And I think that sort of exchange is pretty valid.
Some song ideas absolutely require a kind of rigid discipline, and others require absolute chaotic abandon. The form is only valid if you know how to un-form it. I don’t mean to sound like an intellectual here!

There are many valid concerns about AI, from its impact on jobs to its uses in autonomous weapons systems and even to the potential risk of superintelligence.
I’m thin and white and blond, but I’m not an airbrushed, perfect thing. I have stretch marks all over. I have cellulite; I have acne. To me, it feels like you can’t really be what you can’t see, and so if you don’t see those things, then you don’t feel like you’re valid.
I have mixed feelings about those sorts of things. When I see it done by interesting young people, I think it’s very valid. But when established photographers, people in their forties, copy me and get a lot of money, well, I find that to be very stupid.
Manic depressive people often have incredible energy and a slightly skewed, but nonetheless valid, way of looking at things.

Laura Jane Grace
That young people don’t have valid thoughts about the world because they haven’t been alive long enough is sadly a very popular and, frankly, unoriginal sentiment. When I think about that time, I was just responding to the world around me.
