View quotes by Charlie Chaplin

God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant, and the cat. He has no real style. He just goes on trying other things.
View quotes by Pablo Picasso

Just don't give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong.

How to succeed in business without really trying (title of book)
View quotes by Shepherd Mead

We made a promise to ourselves at the beginning of the process that we weren't going to put any of our own politics, our own messages or our own themes into these movies.
