Famous quotes containing the words rate and/or crime:

    This is the essential distinction—even opposition—between the painting and the film: the painting is composed subjectively, the film objectively. However highly we rate the function of the scenario writer—in actual practice it is rated very low—we must recognize that the film is not transposed directly and freely from the mind by means of a docile medium like paint, but must be cut piece-meal out of the lumbering material of the actual visible world.
    Sir Herbert Read (1893–1968)

    The prisoner is not the one who has commited a crime, but the one who clings to his crime and lives it over and over.
    Henry Miller (1891–1980)
