Quotes - June 2015

Alexei Muravsky

A boy comes to me with a spark of interest, I feed the spark and it becomes a flame. I feed the flame and it becomes a fire. I feed the fire and it becomes a roaring blaze.
— Cus D’Amato

 
Fears are nothing more than states of mind. One’s state of mind is subject to control and direction. Doctors, as everyone knows, are less subject to attack by disease than ordinary laymen for the reason that doctors do not fear disease. Doctors have been known to treat hundreds of people suffering from such contagious diseases as smallpox in a day, without becoming infected. Their immunity against the disease consisted largely, if not solely, in their absolute lack of fear.
— Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich

 
Women. What could you say? Who made ‘em? God must’ve been a fucking genius… Hair. They say the hair’s everything, you know. Have you ever buried your nose in a mountain of curls and just wanted to go to sleep forever? Or, lips. And when they touched yours were like that first swallow of wine after you just crossed the desert. Tits! Hoo-hah! Big ones, little ones. Nipples staring right out at ya, like secret searchlights. Mmm, Legs. I don’t care if they’re Greek columns, or second-hand Steinways, but what’s between them... passport to heaven. I need a drink. Yes, Mr Sims, there’s only two syllables in this whole wide world worth hearing. Pussy. Hah! Are you listenin’ to me son? I’m givin’ ya pearls here…

Mike Michaelson: Christof, let me ask you, why do you think that Truman has never come close to discovering the true nature of his world until now?

Christof: We accept the reality of the world with which we’re presented. It’s as simple as that.
— The Truman Show

 
Although the conspirators had not let their intentions leak out, the danger of an assassination attempt apparently did not remain entirely hidden. Caesar was warned by loyal supporters that he should provide himself with another bodyguard, but he refused. Only someone who was always afraid needed that. It was better to look death in the eye than live in constant fear of it. He was superior even to death. On the evening of 14 March he was a guest of Lepidus, and while Caesar was signing letters the conversation turned to the question of what was the most pleasant death. Caesar said it was one that came suddenly and unexpectedly.
— Christian Meier, Caesar

The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.
— Kevin Spacey (Verbal), The Usual Suspects

 
These canvases presented a challenge to Junior’s sensibility which he never quite managed to handle. “I am interested in beauty,” he once said, “and by and large I do not find beauty in modern art. I find instead a desire for self-expression.” It was the sort of indulgence he had never allowed himself…
— Peter Collier & David Horowitz, The Rockefellers: An American Dynasty

Memory can change the shape of a room; it can change the colour of a car. And memories can be distorted. They’re just an interpretation, they’re not a record, and they’re irrelevant if you have the facts.
— Guy Pearce (Leonard), Memento

 
According to the frugivory by-product hypothesis, the human penchant for drinking alcohol is not an adaption but rather a by-product of adaptive fondness for ripe fruit (Dudley, 2002; Singh, 1985). Alcohol not only has a distinct taste but it also has a unique odour and is often associated with the color and fragrance of ripe fruits… Utilizing the odour and taste of alcohol enables the animal to predict the caloric value of a food” (Singh, 1985, p. 273).
— Dr. David Buss, Evolutionary Psychology: The New Science of the Mind 4th Edition

Do not go gentle into that good night; Old age should burn and rave at close of day. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
— Michael Caine (Dr. Brand), Interstellar
