Ira Gershwin
“The way you wear your hat,
The way you sip your tea,
The mem'ry of all that --
No, no! They can't take that away from me!”
Ira Gershwin

Marilyn Monroe
“I'm not interested in money, I just want to be wonderful.”
Marilyn Monroe

Mary Renault
“One must live as if it would be forever, and as if one might die each moment. Always both at once.”
Mary Renault, The Persian Boy

W. Somerset Maugham
“Supposing there is no life everlasting. Think what it means if death is really the end of all things. They've given up all for nothing. They've been cheated. They're dupes."

Waddington reflected for a little while. "I wonder if it matters what they have aimed at is illusion. Their lives are in themselves beautiful. I have an idea that the only thing which makes it possible to regard this world we live in without disgust is the beauty which now and then men create out of the chaos. The pictures they paint, the music they compose, the books the write, and the lives they lead. Of all these the richest beauty is the beautiful life. That is the perfect work of art.”
W. Somerset Maugham, The Painted Veil

Victor Shklovsky
“Art exists that one may recover the sensation of life, it exists to make one feel things, to make the stone stoney .”
