after all, it's not through the eyes that you feel beauty. it's how the heart hungers for something that makes it beautiful. - alfie (alfie, 1966) be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. - plato cinema owes practically nothing to the scientific mind. - andre bazin did you ever think about the number of things that had to happen for me to get to know you? but everything happened, and it got me here. what does that mean? - don draper (mad men) even then i knew what she was: a gifted, intense, ambitious girl, who was also a little bit stupid about things that had nothing to do with her art, and therefore did not concern her. - guy vanderhaeghe (going to russia) freedom is all too often self-deception among people. - franz kafka (a report to an academy) growing up is, after all, only the understanding that one's unique and incredible experience is what everyone shares. -doris lessing hearts are not had as a gift but hearts are earned by those that are not entirely beautiful. - william butler yeats (a prayer for my daughter) i don't believe that one should devote his life to morbid self-attention. i believe that one should become a person like other people. - travis (taxi driver, 1976) lose something every day. accept the fluster of lost door keys, the hour badly spent. the art of losing isn't hard to master. then practice losing farther, losing faster: places and names and where it was you meant to travel. none of these will bring disaster. -elizabeth bishop (one art) memory is always infinitely more beautiful than reality. - anonymous nothing is original. steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. if you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. and don't bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. in any case, always remember what jean-luc godard said: "it's not where you take things from - it's where you take them to." - jim jarmusch only culture, and only spirituality are capable of reconciling man with the inevitability of his departure into the higher realm. and they prepare him to cross this boundary in as elevated a state of mind and soul as possible. - nicolas berdyaev
