‘If I should die,’ said I to myself, ‘I have left no immortal work behind me - nothing to make my friends proud of my memory - but I have lov’d the principle of beauty in all things, and if I had had time I would have made myself remember’d.’ - John Keats
“Like so many Americans, she was trying to construct a life that made sense from things she found in gift shops.” - Kurt Vonnegut

"My influences are long and huge. We keep Turner Classics on at my house all the time. So it’s like a 24-hour kind of I.V. of information and feelings. And, you know, if you are cooking breakfast and you look over and you can see something that somebody did, you know, sixty years ago, you think, "Man!" And hopefully, it just gets in you and you sort of can go into a film, maybe, sort of thinking about ideas or the films that you’ve seen. Days into it when the clock is ticking and the schedule is moving at a pace, hopefully you sort of become yourself and you’re just trying to film it right and uniquely and simply. That’s the sort of thing that I love about most films that you see on Turner Classic; just how muscular and strong and simple they are.” - Paul Thomas Anderson
