rules at Studio Ghibli

"We thank Thee, Lord, for calling this man back in your bosom, removing him from the disasters of the world. Save us Lord. Save us from the plastic, save us from the radioactive slag, save us from the politic of power, save us from the multinationals, save us from the reason of state, save us from the parades and the uniforms and the military marches, save us from contempt for the weak, save us from the myth of efficiency and productivity, save us from the false moralism, save us from the lies of propaganda. Respect nature. Love life. Copulate carnally with respect for others. Fornicating isn’t a sin if done with love. Amen.”

Hayao Miyazaki on life


I’ve seen so many women in my family, so many mothers, that have lost children in the war in such absurd ways. I wonder how they do it. How do they keep living? How do they keep smiling? How do they put on their clothes on in the morning and survive? I don’t want to be (God forbid) in that situation. Nobody wants to be in that situation anymore. We just want to live a normal life.

I need to say we’ve had enough. I don’t know if will change anything, but at least I know I tried. I’m sharing this responsibility. I can’t do politics, so I’m doing politics in my own way.  -  Nadine Labaki
