“What would an ocean be without a monster lurking in the dark? It would be like sleep without dreams.”
Werner Herzog

“Academia is the death of cinema. It is the very opposite of passion. Film is not the art of scholars, but of illiterates.”
Werner Herzog

“Do you not then hear this horrible scream all around you that people usually call silence.”
Werner Herzog
