You use your life."
Author: John Fowles

The truth is ugly, but so is ignorance or denial of such atrocities and pain."
Author: M.B. Dallocchio

The minute it started people wanted three things: color, sound and depth. You want to recreate life."
Author: Martin Scorsese
17. "Well, you have adventures.

Author: Shiloh Fernandez

Author: Steph Bowe

There are many films to see, many friends to visit, many walks to take, many playlists to assemble and many favorite books to reread. Life's too short for anxious score-keeping. Also, my grandmother is illiterate, and she's one of the best people I know. Reading is a deep personal consolation for me, but other things console, too."
Author: Teju Cole

Author: Yuliya Snigir

Today's Quote

'The Golden Compass' became a bad experience because the studio didn't have faith in the strength of the ideas of the novel, which is ironic because it's one of the greatest fantasy novels ever written, if not the greatest, and they took the religion out of it and tried to turn it into a popcorn movie."
