Quote by Uma Thurman
I'm an actress and mom, and I probably don't have enough of an active spiritual life. And I don't know why people run around calling themselves by the names of religions when they don't actually practise them.
In this quote, the speaker, an actress and a mother, expresses her reflection on her own spirituality and questions the authenticity of others who claim religious affiliations without actively practicing their faith. She acknowledges a lack of an active spiritual life in her own experience and wonders about the sincerity behind those who identify with religious labels but fail to embody the teachings or rituals associated with it. Through this quote, she highlights the importance of genuine practice and challenges the notion of false religious identities.
Millions of couples out there practiced the art of sadomasochism every day, without even realizing it. They went to work, came back, complained about everything, insulted their wife or were insulted by her, felt wretched, but were, nonetheless, tightly bound to their own unhappiness, not realizing that all it would take was a single gesture, a final goodbye, to free them from that oppression.
