Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas.
The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival.
In a democracy the poor will have more power than the rich, because there are more of them, and the will of the majority is supreme.
I love the name of honor, more than I fear death.
Curiosity will conquer fear even more than bravery will.
My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world.
A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.
Things that I grew up with stay with me. You start a certain way, and then you spend your whole life trying to find a certain simplicity that you had. It's less about staying in childhood than keeping a certain spirit of seeing things in a different way.

People see me as cute, but I'm so much more than that.
I have no faith in human perfectability. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active - not more happy - nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago.
Edgar Allan Poe
It is our choices... that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
J. K. Rowling
