Ernest Hemingway // "We would be together and have our books and at night be warm in bed together with the windows open and the stars bright."
Jean-Luc Godard // "Every time that a young filmmaker asks me how to make a film I always tell them something that I have not yet managed to do myself…it's: 'Do you know how to tell your day?' Can you tell it as a memory or can you only tell it in a historical way, like the police would? For example: 'I got up this morning, I put on my underpants or my bra, then I had a coffee, then I took the tram, then I went to the bank, then I saw Jacob, then I came back, then I did this and that...' If this is how he tells his day, he must know that this is not a deep level. The day and the memory must engage you… I would like these stories to be made…so that we could see them rather than hear things about them…to have a real discussion…of interesting people. I have never managed to do this, we are all amateurs in that way."
Audrey Hepburn // "The greatest victory has been to be able to live with myself, to accept my shortcomings...I'm a long way from the human being I'd like to be. But I've decided I'm not so bad after all."
Georgia O’Keeffe // "I said to myself, 'I have things in my head that are not like what anyone has taught me…shapes and ideas so near to me…so natural to my way of being and thinking that it hasn't occurred to me to put them down.' I decided to start anew, to strip away what I had been taught."
Albert Camus // "A spirit of art and madness lurks incessantly beneath the balconies and behind the drapes. It cannot die, and it prevents all from being lost."
Charles Bukowski // "We are far too serious, we must learn to juggle our heavens and our hells…the game is playing us, we must play back."
Björk // "In my most natural state, I'll be introverted for say, six days in a row, and then on the seventh day I'll become very extroverted... Then I'll have to go back inside myself... It's something I can't really control. It's a bit like the ocean and the tides."
Hermann Hesse // "I live in my dreams...that's what you sense. Other people live in dreams, but not in their own. That's the difference."
Ernest Hemingway // "If a writer stops observing, he is finished. Experience is communicated by small details intimately observed."
William S. Burroughs // "If, after spending time with a person, you feel as though you've lost a quart of plasma, avoid that person in the future."
Yohji Yamamoto // "Creation is lifework, creation is how...you spend your life, you cannot divide life and the creation, it’s impossible. Shut your eyes, close your ears, don’t use your brain, use your heart, your soul."
Salvador Dali // "I enjoy tremendously every single moment of my life because death, all the time, is very close watching me and death might catch me. And every five minutes death don’t catch me, I enjoy tremendously."
