The critic leaves at curtain fall To find, in starting to review it, He scarcely saw the play at all For starting to review it.
E. B. White

I saw Tequila Sunrise as a romantic picture with complex, bigger than life characters.
I saw a transvestite wearing a T-shirt that said 'Guess'.
When I took the habit, the Lord immediately showed me how He favours those who do violence to themselves in order to serve Him. No one saw what I endured... At the moment of my entrance into this new state I felt a joy so great that it has never failed me even to this day; and God converted the dryness of my soul into a very great tenderness.
Saint Teresa of Avila
I saw that my image was changing or fading. One of the reasons for taking a break from clubs was to be missed-not forgotten.
