Francois Cluzet Quotes

"I think that in France, we really admire American films, we admire their drive, we admire the modernity and ellipsism in the film and the writing and the style of acting, and we look at them perhaps in a way to see what we can steal from them, too, to make our own films more modern."

Quotes About Making Days Better

"I used to wish I had an easier life," he mused. "Some families sail through years with nothing touching them. They have no tragedies. They go on about how lucky they are. Yet sometimes it seems to me theyre half alive. When something goes wrong for them, and it does for everyone sooner or later, their trauma is much worse. Theyve had nothing bad happen to them before. In the meantime, they think little problems, like losing a wallet, are big deals. They think its ruined their day. They have no idea what a hard days like. Its going to be incredibly tough for them when they find out."Hed also developed his own version of making the most of every minute. "Through Sam I found out how quickly things can change. Because of him Ive learned to appreciate each moment and try not to hold on to things. Lifes more exciting and intense that way. Its like the yogurt that goes off after three days. It tastes so much better than the stuff that lasts three weeks." - Author: Helen Brown

Quotes About Liesel And Max Friendship

"Dear friends, he began, there is no timetable for happiness; it moves, I think, according to rules of its own. When I was a boy I thought Id be happy tomorrow, as a young man I thought it would be next week; last month I thought it would be never. Today, I know it is now. Each of us, I suppose has at least one person who thinks that our manifest faults are worth ignoring; I have found mine, and am content. When we are far from home we think of home; I, who am happy today, think of those in Scotland for whom such happiness might seem elusive; may such powers as listen to what is said by people like me, in olive groves like this, grant to those who want a friendship a friend, attend to the needs of those who have little, hold the hand of those who are lonely, allow Scotland, our place, our country, to sing in the language of her choosing that song she has always wanted to sing, which is of brotherhood, which is of love." - Author: Alexander McCall Smith

Quotes About Melville

"Do you know why teachers use me? Because I speak in tongues. I write metaphors. Every one of my stories is a metaphor you can remember. The great religions are all metaphor. We appreciate things like Daniel and the lions den, and the Tower of Babel. People remember these metaphors because they are so vivid you cant get free of them and thats what kids like in school. They read about rocket ships and encounters in space, tales of dinosaurs. All my life Ive been running through the fields and picking up bright objects. I turn one over and say, Yeah, theres a story. And thats what kids like. Today, my stories are in a thousand anthologies. And Im in good company. The other writers are quite often dead people who wrote in metaphors: Edgar Allan Poe, Herman Melville, Washington Irving, Nathaniel Hawthorne. All these people wrote for children. They may have pretended not to, but they did." - Author: Ray Bradbury

Quotes About Best Friends And Hearts

"Now it is not everybody, even amongst our respected friends and esteemed acquaintance, whom we like to have near us, whom we like to watch us, to wait on us, to approach us with the proximity of a nurse to a patient. It is not every friend whose eye is a light in a sickroom, whose presence is there a solace." - Author: Charlotte Brontë
