How can you be so serious on a film where you are dodging explosions and running away with Sir Alec Guinness on this side and an eight-foot monkey on this side, and the eight-foot monkey is the one flying the spaceship?
In critical moments men sometimes see exactly what they wish to see.
– Spock, from The Tholian Web, stardate 5693.2
I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me – like food or water.
– Ray Charles (1930-2004)
People worry about their rent, their children, their home life. That’s basic. That’s how 80-90 percent, or God knows how many people live. I write stories about a submerged population, people who don’t always have someone to speak for them. I’m sort of a witness, and, besides, that’s the life I myself lived for a long time. I don’t see myself as a spokesman but as a witness to these lives. I’m a writer.
– Raymond Carver (1938 – 1988)
My music will go on forever. Maybe it’s a fool say that, but when me know facts me can say facts. My music will go on forever.
