"Eyes. Those damn eyes fucked me forever. We made love just looking at them."
"Behind every exquisite thing that existed, there was something tragic."
"The unfed mind devours itself."
"The mind is beautiful because of the paradox. It uses itself to understand itself."
"And strangest of all is it to hold my wife’s hand again, and to think that I have counted her, and that she has counted me, among the dead."
H. G. Wells, The War of the Worlds
"I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has to always be out of step with his time."
Orson Welles (May 6th, 1915 - October 10th, 1985)
"It’s only when you avert your face that we’ve got you. Behind closed eyes is where the real horror begins."
"The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting people. As you grow, your associates will change. Some of your friends will not want you to go on. They will want you to stay where they are. Friends that don’t help you climb will want you to crawl. Your friends will stretch your vision or choke your dream. Those that don’t increase you will eventually decrease you."
