Someone once said that every form of government has one characteristic peculiar to it and if that characteristic is lost, the government will fall. In a monarchy, it is affection and respect for the royal family. If that is lost the monarch is lost. In a dictatorship, it is fear. If the people stop fearing the dictator he'll lose power. In a representative government such as ours, it is virtue. If virtue goes, the government fails. Are we choosing paths that are politically expedient and morally questionable? Are we in truth losing our virtue? . . . If so, we may be nearer the dustbin of history than we realize.

Ronald Reagan

You think that I want to run and hide, that I keep it all locked up inside, but I just want you to find me. I知 not lost, just undiscovered. You see the look that痴 on my face. You might think I知 out of place. I知 not running, I知 not hiding. But if you dig a little deeper, you will FIND ME.

James Morrison

Every writer has to make an emotional journey from artist sitting in attic to being part of a business. The writer of a film is like Tinkerbell. You are only there because people believe in you. The moment they don't, because you're a pain the arse, you've lost.

Goncourt
