  • How can you have lived for so long and still not get it? This self-obsession is a waste of living. It could be spent on... Surviving things. Appreciating nature. Nurturing kindness and friendship. And dancing! (Eve in Only Lovers Left Alive)
  • I didn't change things. I just, uh... He just... Cheered people up. Not bad, that. (Charlie Chaplin in Chaplin)
  • I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. (Agatha Christie)

  • It is as if my life were magically run by two electric currents: joyous positive and despairing negative - which ever is running at the moment dominates my life, floods it.
  • My passionate sense of social justice and social responsibility has always contrasted oddly with my pronounced lack of need for direct contact with other human beings and human communities. I am truly a 'lone traveler' and have never belonged to my country, my home, my friends, or even my immediate family, with my whole heart; in the face of all these ties, I have ne...
