"I just wonder how many people fall by the wayside because they can’t push their point home, and therefore don’t quite get what they want. Nobody respects you later for having been a nice guy and given up. You gotta get it - you have to get it now, because you’re gonna wear what you got, basically."
Ridley Scott, 2003 commentary for Alien
"The truth is always an abyss. One must — as in a swimming pool — dare to dive from the quivering springboard of trivial everyday experience and sink into the depths, in order to later rise again — laughing and fighting for breath — to the now doubly illuminated surface of things."
