Jim Bishop
The future is an opaque mirror. Anyone who tries to look into it sees nothing but the dim outlines of an old and worried face.
4
Joseph Brodsky
I do not believe in political movements. I believe in personal movement, that movement of the soul when a man who looks at himself is so ashamed that he tries to make some sort of change - within himself, not on the outside.

Pearl S. Buck

6
Ken Burns

Ethan Embry
Everybody tries to be exactly the same. I think being an outsider is a good thing.
