Not to say that you shouldn… (Ada Lovelace)

Not to say that you shouldn't strive for success, but don't forget why you're doing it. It's not just for adoration.

Adrian Grenier

First scenes are super-important to me. I'll spend months and months pacing and climbing the walls trying to come up with the first scene. I drive for hours on the freeway.

Aaron Sorkin

It's such a stupid thing to sign a band and then demand a hit right away to instantly recoup the money. The point is, you have to do it by building your own following, and that is not necessarily done by writing instant hits.

Al Jourgensen

Abbas Kiarostami

A person without a shadow should keep out of the sun, that is the only safe and rational plan.

Adelbert von Chamisso
