Quotable Quotes:

"Until a character becomes a personality it cannot be believed. Without personality, the character may do funny or interesting things, but unless people are able to identify themselves with the character, its actions will seem unreal. And without personality, a story cannot ring true to the audience."

"The important thing is to do good work, no matter what medium you do it in."

"When you realize how perfect everything is you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky. "

"Optimism is the madness of insisting that all is well when we are miserable."
