"Reality is. Everything else is stories."
“I consider that filmmaking is a natural extension of writing if, when you sit down to do it, you think in images. So, I write with both, words and images.”
“Language is a virus.” – W.S. Burroughs
“Learning is finding out what you already now.
Doing is demonstrating that you know it.
Teaching is reminding others that they know it just as well as you.
We are all learners, doers, teachers.
Your only obligation in any lifetime is to be true to yourself.˝ – N. Ray
"Yes, for us in the Shakespeare Squadron, writing is just that:
not an escape from reality, but an attempt to change reality,
so the writer can escape the limits of reality.” – W.S. Burroughs
“Film is a battlefield. There’s love, hate, action, violence, death. In a word: emotions.” – S. Fuller
“Every day is a good day.” – Zen proverb
