Quote from: Gordon Shumway on January 19, 2013, 09:29:19 PMJust tonight:Wyatt Earp: Mac, you ever been in love?Mac: No, I've been a bartender all me life.-- My Darling Clementine (1946)
QuoteI recall one of my oldest ideas. The Czar is the leader and spiritual father of a hundred and fifty million men. An atrocious responsibility which is only apparent. Perhaps he is not responsible to God, but rather to a few human beings. If the poor of his empire are oppressed during his reign, if immense catastrophes result from that reign, who knows if the servant charged with shining his boots is not the real and sole person guilty? In the mysterious dispositions of the Profundity, who is really Czar, who is king, who can boast of being a mere servant?
QuoteLife is hard, then you die.

QuoteI don't think so. He makes women look very powerful and very beautiful. He said something I loved once: he kills more women in his movies because they scream better and they move better. Women know pain more genetically so they can express that better than a man.

Quote from: karlhenning on February 04, 2013, 03:16:51 AMAn excellent insight.
QuoteA work is finished when we can no longer improve it, though we know it to be inadequate and incomplete. We are so over taxed by it that we no longer have the power to add a single comma, however indispensable. What determines the degree to which a work is done is not a requirement of art or of truth, it is exhaustion and, even more, disgust.
