“A rat race is for rats. We’re not rats. We’re human beings. Reject the insidious pressures in society that would blunt your critical faculties to all that is happening around you, that would caution silence in the face of injustice, lest you jeopardise your chances of self-promotion and self-advancement. This is how it starts and, before you know where you are, you’re a fully paid-up member of the rat pack. The price is too high. It entails the loss of your dignity and human spirit. Or as Christ puts it, ‘What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul?’” —JIMMY REID. UK labor leader.
“You write who you are and what you know. But you also cheat and you write what you want to be. It’s a little embarrassing, sometimes, to be the guy that made the movie, knowing that I’m not exactly what I want to be.” —Paul Thomas Anderson (via kindofiguess)
“It’s not like I changed on purpose. But…doing things here makes you more interested in life in general. I can point out things that my friends never saw.” —sometimes my notes have quotes that i think are just beautiful.
