“Most of us are searching-consciously or unconsciously- for a degree of internal balance and harmony between ourselves and the outside world, and if we happen to become aware-like Stravinsky- of a volcano within us, we will compensate by urging restraint. By that same token, someone who bore a glacier within them might urge passionate abandon. The danger is, as Bergman points out, that a glacial personality in need of passionate abandon may read Stravinsky and apply restraint instead.”
Walter Murch, In the Blink of an Eye

“Once things have passed and become irretrievable, we tend to see them with a hazy, golden glow.”
Walter Murch, The Conversations: Walter Murch and the Art of Editing Film

“When I'm actually assembling a scene, I assemble it as a silent movie. Even if it's a dialog scene, I lip read what people are saying.”
Walter Murch
