Famous quotes containing the words films and/or silent:

    Science fiction films are not about science. They are about disaster, which is one of the oldest subjects of art.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

    But real action is in silent moments. The epochs of our life are not in the visible facts of our choice of a calling, our marriage, our acquisition of an office, and the like, but in a silent thought by the way-side as we walk; in a thought which revises our entire manner of life, and says,—”Thus hast thou done, but it were better thus.”
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
