Francois de La Rochefoucauld
There is no friend like an old friend who has shared our morning days, no greeting like his welcome, no homage like his praise.

Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear.

Fraud is the homage that force pays to reason.

What happened in the late Fifties, early Sixties in French cinema was a fantastic revolution. I was in Italy, but completely in love with the nouvelle vague movement, and directors like Godard, Truffaut, Demy. 'The Dreamers' was a total homage to cinema and that love for it.
