Quote 3 - 3 - 12

I think that all of us either lose touch with the child inside us or try and hold onto it because it so precious to us and it's such an extraordinary part of our lives.

Ben Kingsley

One of the greatest things drama can do, at it's best, is to redefine the words we use every day such as love, home, family, loyalty and envy. Tragedy need not be a downer.

Ben Kingsley

That hunger of the flesh, that longing for ease, that terror of incarceration, that insistence on tribal honour being obeyed: all of that exists, and it exists everywhere.

Ben Kingsley

Dialogue should simply be a sound among other sounds, just something that comes out of the mouths of people whose eyes tell the story in visual terms.

Alfred Hitchcock

Television has done much for psychiatry by spreading information about it, as well as contributing to the need for it.

Alfred Hitchcock

These are bagpipes. I understand the inventor of the bagpipes was inspired when he saw a man carrying an indignant, asthmatic pig under his arm. Unfortunately, the man-made sound never equalled the purity of the sound achieved by the pig.

Alfred Hitchcock

Always make the audience suffer as much as possible.

Good pairing here, Dan. Kingsley made me think and Hitchcock made me laugh, not a bad way to start the day.
This was, btw., the first day in a long time when the weather map did not show any warning, advisories or other dire predictions, no even over the ocean!
