The poet, the artist, the sleuth - whoever sharpens our perception tends to be antisocial; rarely "well-adjusted", he cannot go along with currents and trends. A strange bond often exists between antisocial types in their power to see environments as they really are. This need to interface, to confront environments with a certain antisocial power is manifest in the famous story "The Emperor's New Clothes". ~ Marshall McLuhan
Quentin Fore quotes by Marshall McLuhan
I'm not a Hollywood basher because enough good movies come out of the Hollywood system every year to justify its existence, without any apologies. ~ Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Tarantino
It wasn't a case of me sitting down and thinking, right then, what shall I do with my life? Airline pilot? Plumber? Guitar manufacturer? Writer ... yeah, writer. I've always loved writing, from a very early age
I guess I was writing my first stories when I was still in single digits. It progressed, and the love of writing grew in my mind and is still growing. Doing it full-time, there are different stresses and tensions, and the business side of it comes to the fore sometimes. But I still love it, and I'm always thankful that I can do what I do and make a living from it. ~ Tim Lebbon
Quentin Fore quotes by Tim Lebbon
What's this business about the 'little man in the canoe?' If it's big enough for a canoe, it's too big for me. ~ Quentin R. Bufogle
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin R. Bufogle
It is the characteristic excellence of the strong man that he can bring momentous issues to the fore and make a decision about them. The weak are always forced to decide between alternatives they have not chosen themselves. ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Quentin Fore quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
I don't wait for inspiration. I'm not, in fact, quite sure what inspiration is, but I'm sure that if it is going to turn up, my having started work is the precondition of its arrival. ~ Quentin Blake
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Blake
Bit by bit, I was becoming the almost acceptable face of homosexuality. ~ Quentin Crisp
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Crisp
...being around him wasn't good for Quentin. He could feel himself regressing in the direction of an adolescent tantrum - it was like trying to talk to his parents. He lost all perspective on who he was and how far he'd come. ~ Lev Grossman
Quentin Fore quotes by Lev Grossman
I don't feel as if I belong to an age group. ~ Quentin Blake
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Blake
That got some appreciative laughter, though he wasn't joking, and the bird didn't laugh. It didn't answer him either. Quentin couldn't read its face; like all birds, it had only one expression. ~ Lev Grossman
Quentin Fore quotes by Lev Grossman
Julia had been angry most of her life. She may have grown up in wealth and privilege but she'd had to fight to be heard and seen. To be validated. To be something other than a piece to be moved around her parents' Monopoly board. Rage had given her a voice against their manipulations and the guts to walk away. But it had also become ingrained.
There were times when she'd contemplated therapy for it. Right now, she was pleased she hadn't.
If anything could kill this cancer it would be the weight of Julia's wrath. ~ Amy Andrews
Quentin Fore quotes by Amy Andrews
The absolute nothingness of death is a blessing. Something to look forward to. ~ Quentin Crisp
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Crisp
You don't chatter half as much as you used to, Anne, nor use half as many big words. What has come over you?" Anne coloured and laughed a little, as she dropped her book and looked dreamily out of the window, where big fat red buds were bursting out on the creeper in response to the lure of the spring sunshine. "I don't know - I don't want to talk as much," she said, denting her chin thoughtfully with her fore-finger. "It's nicer to think dear, pretty thoughts and keep them in one's heart, like treasures. I don't like to have them laughed at or wondered over. And ~ L.M. Montgomery
Quentin Fore quotes by L.M. Montgomery
Quentin Sollys: the Once and Future King of Spiders. ~ Seanan McGuire
Quentin Fore quotes by Seanan McGuire
When I was on The View, Barbara Walters was asking me about the blood and stuff, and I said, 'Well, you know, that's a staple of Japanese cinema.' And then she came back, 'But this is America.' And I go, 'I don't make movies for America. I make movies for planet Earth.' ~ Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Tarantino
Evidence from mobile devices has provided critical help in solving crimes ranging from homicides to drug trafficking. ~ Del Quentin Wilber
Quentin Fore quotes by Del Quentin Wilber
Everything ungirt, artless, ardent, urgent about Louie was to the fore: all over herself she gave the impression of twisted stockings. ~ Elizabeth Bowen
Quentin Fore quotes by Elizabeth Bowen
Quentin Fore quotes by Patricia J Tackett
To me, torture would be watching sports on television. ~ Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Tarantino
I always knew I wanted to do a Western. And trying to think of what that would be, I always figured that if I did a Western, it would have a lot of the aesthetics of Spaghetti Westerns, because I really like them. ~ Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Tarantino
Then they'd [Nazi] make movies against England, you know, in the same way, to help, you know, feather their nest for what they - their aggressions. ~ Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Tarantino
This is a feeling that you had, Quentin, she said. Once, a very long time ago. A rare one. This is how you felt when you were eight years old, and you opened one of the Fillory books for the first time, and you felt awe and joy and hope and longing all at once. You felt them very strongly, Quentin. You dreamed of Fillory then, with a power and an innocence that not many people ever experience. That's where all this began for you. You wanted the world to be better than it was. ~ Lev Grossman
Quentin Fore quotes by Lev Grossman
( ... )the question of the Jews has come to the fore, but like other questions which lend themselves to prejudice, efforts will be made to hush it up as impolitic for open discussion. If, however, experience has taught us anything it is that questions thus suppressed will sooner or later break out in undesirable and unprofitable forms. ~ Henry Ford
Quentin Fore quotes by Henry Ford
Lead with solutions. Find the pain and offer a pain reliever. ~ Rob Fore
Quentin Fore quotes by Rob Fore
The world we live in is not purely visual. For me it's totally poly-sensorial so the tactile, sensual aspect of living in the work that I do is brought to the fore. ~ Ross Lovegrove
Quentin Fore quotes by Ross Lovegrove
Australian genre films were a lot of fun because they were legitimate genre movies. They were real genre films, and they dealt, in a way like the Italians did, with the excess of genre, and that has been an influence on me. ~ Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Tarantino
A movie doesn't have to do everything. A movie just has to do a couple of things. If it does those things well and gives you a cool night at the movies, an emotion, that's good enough. ~ Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Tarantino
I don't like to be on a set and wait three hours, just to make some lighting adjustments. I like to shoot. That's what I want to do. I'd rather shoot something dumb than wait. ~ Quentin Dupieux
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Dupieux
I squeezed my eyes shut so I wouldn't have to look at my arm trailing away like the streamer on a bike handle.

"I can't be stuck like this!" I wailed. Visions of having to gnaw it off like a jackal in a trap flooded my brain.

Quentin knelt before me and put his hands on my trembling shoulders.

"You're not going to be stuck," he said, his voice low and reassuring in my ears. "You are the most powerful thing on Earth short of a god. You can do absolutely anything. So believe me when I say you can certainly change your arm back to normal."

He held me firmly, the way you'd brace someone trying to pop a dislocated joint back into place. "Just relax and breathe," he said. "It'll happen as you will it."

I took his advice and focused on calming down. Focused on nothing. Focused on him.

I couldn't really feel my arm retracting. And I certainly didn't want to look at it happening. I just . . . remembered how I was supposed to be. I kept quiet, kept at it for what must have been a good ten minutes, until I could feel both of my hands firmly on Quentin's broad back.

"There you go," he said.

I opened my eyes. My arm was normal again. I was aware that we were sort of hugging.

I buried my face in his chest and blew my nose on his shirt. "I'm a human being," I muttered.

"I never said you weren't."

I raised my head. Quentin looked at me with a smile that was free of any smu ~ F.C. Yee
Quentin Fore quotes by F.C. Yee
Digital presentation is just television in public; we're all just getting together and watching TV without pointing the remote control at the screen. ~ Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Tarantino
Exhibitionists have no friends, no friends at all. ~ Quentin Crisp
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Crisp
There are a lot of bad screenplays so if you write a good screenplay people are going to respond to it. ~ Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Tarantino
Always be grateful for your blessings, especially your heritage. When we are blessed with goodly parents, we should be grateful. This is the debt each of us owes for our heritage. ~ Quentin L. Cook
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin L. Cook
You know, the art films would usually be more, I mean the exploitation movies would usually be more lurid, but not that much more. I mean, actually back in those days that was what foreign films had. They had sex, they were selling Laura Antonelli. ~ Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Tarantino
When you have known someone your whole life you don't need a lot of warm-up time to get into a big argument. All the fore-play has been done years ago, and so the battle sits in your memory like stove gas awaiting the match. A wrong word, a careless allusion, and the old fire is suddenly raging. ~ Roland Merullo
Quentin Fore quotes by Roland Merullo
It was a morning when all nature shouted Fore! The breeze, as it blew gently up from the valley, seemed to bring a message of hope and cheer, whispering of chip shots holed and brassies landing squarely on the meat. The fairway, as yet unscarred by the irons of a hundred dubs, smiled greenly up at the azure sky. ~ P.G. Wodehouse
Quentin Fore quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
If you want to make a movie, make it. Don't wait for a grant, don't wait for the perfect circumstances, just make it. ~ Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Tarantino
Sexual immorality and impure thoughts violate the standard established by the Savior. We were warned at the beginning of this dispensation that sexual immorality would be perhaps the greatest challenge. Such conduct will, without repentance, cause a spiritual drought and loss of commitment. ~ Quentin L. Cook
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin L. Cook
At this very moment we are breathing the same air that once was Marco Polo's last breath. And we're also breathing the same air that was Mozart's first breath as a baby.
you're also breathing air that's probably been queefed by Mata Hari, Cleopatra and Marilyn Monroe, which either way you look at it is pretty cool.
So, while we're breathing in the same molecules as Jesus, we're also breathing in the same air as Pontius Pilot, Attila the Hun and an inmate on Death Row in San Quentin State Prison. We are linked to every other life form that has ever been on this planet because we literally breathe the same air. ~ Karl Wiggins
Quentin Fore quotes by Karl Wiggins
Sex is the last refuge of the miserable ~ Quentin Crisp
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Crisp
The same light SHINES from the case. Pumpkin's expression goes to amazement. Honey Bunny across the room, can't see shit ~ Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Tarantino
I always write these movies that are far too big for any paying customer to sit down and watch from beginning to end, and so I always have this big novel that I have to adapt into a movie as I go. ~ Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Tarantino
There is a phase of melancholy - a phase that has sloughed all urgency - that seems to me always a revelation of that ancient, familiar thing, my true self. If there is anything in a person with which one may be in love, surely it can only ever be the self that such melancholy reveals. There are potent and austere traditions that teach us a true self that has no qualities, no atmosphere, and which thus could never be revealed by melancholia; some of these traditions maintain, in a tone that suggests resistance is folly, that there is no self at all. But such traditions are not native to my soul, and within my life they are new, though they are older than me in history. For me, the self revealed by melancholy is older and thus truer. ~ Quentin S. Crisp
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin S. Crisp
One thing I don't understand is that average American movie-goers cannot watch a movie for three hours, yet they'll watch a stupid, boring, horrific football game for four hours. Now, that is boredom at its most colossal. ~ Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Tarantino
Poppy Devine did not deserve cancer. Poppy was sweet and industrious and careful and measured and always, always did the right thing. If anyone deserved cancer it was Julia. Julia was loud and opinionated and disagreeable. Rude, some might even say. She went out with bad men, took unnecessary risks, pushed people to their limits, swore like a sailor and flipped the bird more than any female in the history of the world.
It should be her number coming up in the cancer lottery. ~ Amy Andrews
Quentin Fore quotes by Amy Andrews
Love is the extra effort we make in our dealings with those whom we do not like and once you understand that, you understand all. This idea that love overtakes you is nonsense. This is but a polite manifestation of sex. To love another you have to undertake some fragment of their destiny. ~ Quentin Crisp
Quentin Fore quotes by Quentin Crisp
The muse is fickle; ergo, when she knocks, ANSWER! It may take a while, but trust me, she WILL knock. In the meantime, keep your ear pressed firmly to the door. ~ Quentin R. Bufogle
