André Previn

The generosity, sensitivity, the nobility of her service to the children of the world and the mothers of the world will never be forgotten.”

Yes, we thought we were being clever New Yorkers - that the name was a joke no one else would really get, like we did. Not meta-get ...

Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

“I am quite scandalous, you see. I come packaged with unpredictable moments, brutal honesty, calamitous outbursts, the ghastly need for love, a fiendish lack of filter, the horrific need to question everything, nauseating affection, offensive kindness, indecent spirituality, obscene beauty, monstrous creativity, barbaric embellishments, contemptuous passion, sinful childhood traumas, unscrupulous hobbies, vexatious caring, abominable sensitivity, reprehensible humor, hideous sarcasm, displeasing feelings, unpalatable confidence, offensive compassion, villainous inspiration and a devilish wit. I am quite grotesque in my imperfectness and I am not ashamed to admit it.”

Herman van Veen, Bevor ich es vergesse - Die Autobiographie
