Films don't hold the answers I'm looking for... Would you not be so much more interested in finding out that Bigfoot existed than in watching a really good movie?
To die is one thing. How much worse to know that all the life that ever existed on this planet, and all it ever achieved, was to be obliterated?
U2 - that's a band that never should have existed. There's no life experience in any of their songs.
I didn't even know 'Vogue' existed when I was growing up.
My career is like an artichoke. People might think that the leaves are tasty and buttered up and delicious, and they don't even know that there's something magical hidden at the base of it. There's a whole other side of me that people didn't know existed.
The genius of a folk melody or story is not the feeling that it's original but quite the opposite - the feeling that it has existed all along.
I think that we're living in a time where there are trillion-dollar opportunities that never existed before.
Humans have existed only for the last 0.001 percent of cosmic time. All of which says that - unless the Homo sapiens brain is the one-and-only instance of cogitating machinery - nearly all the intelligence that's out there is beyond our level.

Leonardo da Vinci
