“The motion picture made in Hollywood, if it is to create art at all, must do so within such strangling limitations of subject and treatment that it is a blind wonder it ever achieves any distinction beyond the purely mechanical slickness of a glass and chromium bathroom.”
—Raymond Chandler (18881959)
“in the mind of man,
A motion and a spirit, that impels
All thinking things, all objects of all thought,
And rolls through all things.”
—William Wordsworth (17701850)
“It is terrible to destroy a persons picture of himself in the interests of truth or some other abstraction.”
—Doris Lessing (b. 1919)
