He had no fucking right, none of us do. Besides, I think Terminator 2 is a pretty kick-ass movie. —Paul Thomas Anderson

You say yes to the sunlight and pure fantasies, so you have to say yes to the filth and the nausea. Everything is within you, gold and mud, happiness and pain, the laughter of childhood and the apprehension of death. —Hermann Hesse
