Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
During my seven-year contract with RKO, there were seven different studio presidents, from David O. Selznick to Charles W. Koerner. You literally had to check the name on the door so as not to call the new boss by the former boss's name. ~ Ginger Rogers

It's fun to see how other artists adapt my work. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
If you look at pictures of David O. Selznick , he wasn't even attractive. There's no way to portray him in a way that is glamorous, but that's one of the things that's fascinating to me about him. ~ Karina Longworth
Selznick quotes by Karina Longworth
Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea," translated Florent. "By Jules Verne. This book I have not read in many years."

"We're reading it in French class," Joseph said. "It's hard to understand, but I found a line that Uncle Albert would love."

Florent opened to a dog-eared page where Joseph had underlined a sentence and written the translation in the margin. Florent read it out loud. "'Let me tell you, Professor, that you will not regret the time spent on board. You are going to travel in a a land of marvels. ~ Brian Selznick

The institutional leader is primarily an expert in the promotion and protection of values. ~ Philip Selznick
Selznick quotes by Philip Selznick
The machine was so intricate, so complicated, that he almost got dizzy looking at it. Even in its sad state of disrepair, it was beautiful. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick

Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick

Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
Amber starts off as sap from a tree," Joseph said in the dark. "And sometimes insects get caught in it, and over millions of years the amber turns into a gemstone, but it traps the insect inside."
"Oh."
"A photograph is sort of like that, don't you think? ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
I love being an illustrator because I get to read really great stories, work with amazing people, travel and see places I never would've seen. And I get to draw all the time. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
I had read the criticisms of me and my movies and they were discerning. They said that Crawford needs a new deal, and they asked if I was doomed to explore forever the emotional misfortunes of the super-sexed modern young woman. And so, to break away from the pattern, I wanted to do "The Gorgeous Hussy". Selznick laughed at me. 'You can't do a costume picture. You're too modern.' But I begged and begged and begged, and so they let me do it. I was totally miscast. ~ Joan Crawford
Selznick quotes by Joan Crawford
Even this vein of writing is so foreign to me that I am amazed. ~ David O. Selznick
Selznick quotes by David O. Selznick
Nowadays, the work of Alfred Hitchcock is admired all over the world. Young people who are just discovering his art through the current rerelease of Rear Window and Vertigo, or through North by Northwest, may assume his prestige has always been recognized, but this is far from being the case.

In the fifties and sixties, Hitchcock was at the height of his creativity and popularity. He was, of course, famous due to the publicity masterminded by producer David O. Selznick during the six or seven years of their collaboration on such films as Rebecca, Notorious, Spellbound, and The Paradine Case.

His fame had spread further throughout the world via the television series Alfred Hitchcock Presents in the mid-fifties. But American and European critics made him pay for his commercial success by reviewing his work with condescension, and by belittling each new film.
(...)
In examining his films, it was obvious that he had given more thought to the potential of his art than any of his colleagues. It occurred to me that if he would, for the first time, agree to respond seriously to a systematic questionnaire, the resulting document might modify the American critics' approach to Hitchcock.
That is what this book is all about. ~ Francois Truffaut
Selznick quotes by Francois Truffaut
There's a fantastic, thousand-page book by David Thomson about [David O. Selznick]. Again, it's not the best argument or the best advertisement for his story, because most people aren't going to read a thousand-page book. But I feel like the rise and fall and the work [Mayer] produced - not just the movies, but the memos, the volume of writing - he's just so passionate, and that's really exciting. ~ Karina Longworth
Selznick quotes by Karina Longworth
Leadership, pure and simple, is the assumption of responsibility for the pursuit of excellence in group life. ~ Philip Selznick
Selznick quotes by Philip Selznick
There are only two kinds of class: First class and no class. ~ David O. Selznick
Selznick quotes by David O. Selznick
I never ate of the grapes nor feared of the eruptions. ~ David O. Selznick
Selznick quotes by David O. Selznick

Selznick quotes by Vivien Leigh
Time is supposed to move forwards.'

'What if I don't like what happens?'

'Then...you change it. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
She walked to the rear door and took out a bobby pin from her pocket. Hugo watched as she fiddled with the pin inside the lock until it clicked and the door opened. "How did you learn to do that?" asked Hugo. "Books," answered Isabelle. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
I can draw pencil lines to show something is moving, but if I'm writing, I struggle with how to write it. The boy ran down the hallway? The boy ran quickly down the hallway? The boy ran down the marble hallway? I agonize over the words. So my editor works very hard. I'm lucky to have her. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
I majored in illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design, although I never had any intention of being an illustrator and didn't take any classes in illustration there. It was just that the illustration degree had no requirements. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
Maybe time is like that insect," Blink said, "trapped beneath the crystal of your watch. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
A friend suggested that I get a job at a children's book store so I could meet kids and read books, and that turned out to be the single best bit of advice I've ever gotten. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
I like the pages to turn. I like the bookness of the book. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
A lot of times, people complain about how books and stories change when they're translated to the screen. But I think sometimes people forget that a lot of changes have to be made because we're not in a book when we're watching a movie. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
I knew I had to break up with Ann Rosenberg after she chose a teal dress for the prom. I had never heard of teal. Also, I was gay. ~ Brian Selznick

Selznick quotes by Philip Selznick
I can feel that the world this day is different than all the days of our lives before. ~ David O. Selznick
Selznick quotes by David O. Selznick
Having an eye patch actually makes it easier to look through a camera - I don't have to close one eye like everyone else. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
The little religion that I have clung to-that what matters most is the continuity of life, and its improvement from one generation to another. ~ David O. Selznick
Selznick quotes by David O. Selznick
Standing on the roof at night, beside the golden ship
I look across the city and I dream a wild trip.
The waves are high, the wind is strong, the moon is white and full.
I smell the salt upon the sea, a strong magnetic pull.
I shout into the endless dark, awaiting the reply:
'Away! Away' It says: 'Away! Now spread your wings and fly. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
Maybe we are all cabinets of wonders. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
Did you ever notice that all machines are made for some reason?" he asked Isabelle. "They are built to make you laugh, like the mouse here, or to tell the time, like clocks, or to fill you with wonder like the automaton. Maybe that's why a broken machine always makes me a little sad, because it isn't able to do what it was made to do." Isabelle picked up the mouse, wound it again, and set it down. "Maybe it's the same with people," Hugo continued. "If you lose your purpose ... it's like you're broken. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
You either see it or you don't ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
I'm so depressed. Christmas is the worst of all. Holidays are terrible, worse than Sundays. I get melancholia. ~ David O. Selznick
Selznick quotes by David O. Selznick
My house had suddenly turned into a hospital ward. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
But there are other stories waiting to be told, and they will be lost one day, too. Whatever the case, it's all beneath your feet, right now. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
Then you know Prometheus was rescued in the end. His chains were broken, and he was finally set free." The old man squinted one of his eyes and added, "How about that? ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
I cannot permit you to disrupt the Paramount schedule. ~ David O. Selznick
Selznick quotes by David O. Selznick
Thank God for your mother. ~ David O. Selznick
Selznick quotes by David O. Selznick
I like to imagine that the world is one big machine. You know, machines never have any extra parts. They have the exact number and type of parts they need. So I figure if the entire world is a big machine, I have to be here for some reason. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
I think the most important thing you can do is to keep drawing no matter what. And to not be afraid of drawing whatever interests you. If there is something that you want to draw, to make, then I think you should pursue it and not let anybody tell you that you can't do it. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
It's all right; it's not so much fun any more. ~ David O. Selznick
Selznick quotes by David O. Selznick
Like a mermaid rising from an ocean of paper, the girl emerged across the room. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
But he'd never seen anything like this before. And he'd never felt anything like it, either. The closest he could think of was when he and Blink were immersed in a book together. Sometimes a strange feeling would come over them as they'd race through the pages, and the words would dissolve, and they'd find themselves deep inside Oz, or Narnia, or the Andes, or Africa, where everything was real and vidid and alive.
Stories could do that, but this wasn't story. This was a house. And no matter how real a story seemed, you still couldn't eat the food, or pick up the plates, or warm yourself by the fire. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
He often took me to the studio where the movies were made and I remember it as if it were yesterday. I remember how the sun shone through all the windows. I thought it looked like a fairytale palace. One afternoon your husband appeared and shook my hand. And he told me something I never forgot. He crouched on one knee and whispered to me, "If you ever wanted to know where dreams come from when you're sleeping at night, you just have to look around you, that's where they are made. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
Maybe we're all cabinets of wonders. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
I won't do this movie because I don't believe the love story," she told Selznick. "The heroine is an intellectual woman, and an intellectual woman simply can't fall in love so deeply. ~ Ingrid Bergman
Selznick quotes by Ingrid Bergman
Since I spend such a long time making each book, I only choose books that I'm really interested in and that I really love. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
Time can play all sorts of tricks on you. In the blink of an eye, babies appear in carriages, coffins disappear into the ground, wars are won and lost, and children transform, like butterflies, into adults. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
For most of my career I illustrated books for other people. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
You can make up your own story when you look at a photo. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
Ben wished the world was organized by the Dewey decimal system. That way you'd be able to find whatever you were looking for. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
Sometimes, I have themes that interest me or that touch on larger issues but, really, I'm just trying to figure out the plot, or how the characters work. I'm trying to make the best story I possibly can. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
A lot of people who don't write for kids think it's easy, because they think kids aren't as smart as they are, or that you have to dumb down what you would normally write for kids. But I think you have to work harder when you write for kids, to make sure every word is right, that it's there for the right reason. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
I sit down and say, and I run all my friends and relatives and enemies one by one in this, without entertaining any angers or gratitudes or anything, and I say, like 'Japhy Ryder, equally empty, equally to be loved, equally a coming Buddha,' then I run on, say to 'David O. Selznick, equally empty, equally to be loved, equally a coming Buddha' though I don't use names like David O. Selznick, just people I know because when I say the words 'equally a coming Buddha' I want to be thinking of their eyes, like you take Morley, his blue eyes behind those glasses, when you think 'equally a coming Buddha' you think of those eyes and you really do suddenly see the true secret serenity and the truth of his coming Buddhahood. Then you think of your enemy's eyes. ~ Jack Kerouac
Selznick quotes by Jack Kerouac
If you've ever wondered where your dreams come from when you go to sleep at night, just look around. This is where they are made. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
I've always loved children's books - it's not that I didn't like them, I just didn't think I wanted to do that. But then I suddenly realized I did ... ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
They're stealing my ideas. They're imitating my shots. ~ David O. Selznick
Selznick quotes by David O. Selznick
The term "leadership" connotes critical experience rather than routine practice. This is suggested in the following comment by Barnard: The overvaluation of the apparatus of communication and administration is opposed to leadership and the development of leaders. It opposes leadership whose function is to promote appropriate adjustment of ends and means to new environmental conditions, because it opposes change either of status in general or of established procedures and habitual routine. This overvaluation also discourages the development of leaders by retarding the progress of the abler men and by putting an excessive premium on routine qualities.[6] {37} ~ Philip Selznick
Selznick quotes by Philip Selznick
There are only two classes - first class and no class. ~ David O. Selznick
Selznick quotes by David O. Selznick
Maybe that's why a broken machine always makes me a little sad, because it isn't able to do what it was meant to do ... Maybe it's the same with people," Hugo continued. "If you lose your purpose ... it's like your broken. ~ Brian Selznick
Selznick quotes by Brian Selznick
I've always loved the wild rumpus in 'Where the Wild Things Are' by Maurice Sendak, because the words disappear, the pictures take up the whole page, and we move forward in the story by turning the pages. ~ Brian Selznick
