“But the world might guess it, and I will not bare my soul to their shallow prying eyes. My heart shall never be put under their microscope.”
"I once had a dream, or a vision, and I imagined that dream to be of importance to other people, so I wrote the manuscript and made the film. But it is not until the moment when my dream meets with your emotions and your minds that my shadows come to life. It is your recognition that brings them to life. It is you indifference that kills them. I hope that you will understand; that you when you leave the cinema will take with you an experience or a sudden thought—or maybe a question. The efforts of my friends and myself have then not been in vain…" — Ingmar Bergman
“I have no pity! I have no pity! The more the worms writhe, the more I yearn to crush out their entrails! It is a moral teething; and I grind with greater energy, in proportion to the increase of pain.”

“I was so used to thinking and imagining everything from books, and to picturing everything in the world to myself as I had devised it beforehand in my dreams”
R.I.P. Cary Grant
Born Archibald Alexander Leach
January 18, 1904 - November 29, 1986
"Cary was magical. He was touched by the gods in the sense that he was different from everyone else. When he walked into a room, you had to look at him. Men liked him as well as women, and that’s incredibly rare. Men found him nonthreatening. If a woman said, ‘I’m in love with Cary Grant,’ most men couldn’t blame her."
"Most celebrities are concerned with how they look and how people react to them. Cary reacted to other people. His success never went to his head. There are people who would walk into a room and say, ‘Here I am.’ Cary walked in and said, ‘There you are.’"
-Abigail Van Buren
"I remember his laughter. We always laughed a lot when we were together… He was like a great warm fireplace. He warmed you and made you feel super. He was what one would hope a movie star would be like."
"Dad used the expression ‘good stuff’ to declare happiness or, as one of his friends put it, he said it when pleased with the nature of things. He said it a lot. He had a happy way of life. His life was ‘good stuff.’"
