If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered.
What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined - to strengthen each other - to be at one with each other in silent unspeakable memories.
The struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting.
Do not seek to bring things to pass in accordance with your wishes, but wish for them as they are, and you will find them.
I do not wish to treat friendships daintily, but with the roughest courage. When they are real, they are not glass threads or frost-work, but the solidest thing we know.
I photograph the things that I do not wish to paint, the things which already have an existence.
Of all things visible, the highest is the heaven of the fixed stars.
Don't forget that everything you deal with is only one thing and nothing else.
You're always in a different headspace when you make each record, so hopefully they're all different. You just pick up things that you wish you hadn't done on the first one.
I had some things I had to fix. It took me 14 years to do it. But it was never really fun back in the day to work with directors who were a lot older and were like authoritarian and talking to you like that.

I wish that I spoke more languages. I speak a couple languages, but not well enough to really dub myself. French is really the only one, and it's a difficult thing.

While all other things are uncertain, evanescent, and ephemeral, virtue alone is fixed with deep roots;it can neither be overthrown by any violence or moved from its place.
Memories are doing funny things to us.
There is no man, however wise, who has not at some period of his youth said things, or lived in a way the consciousness of which is so unpleasant to him in later life that he would gladly, if he could, expunge it from his memory.

The one thing that men and women have in common - they both like the company of men.
