“I am a collection of oddities, a circus of neurons and electrons: my heart is the ringmaster, my soul is the trapeze artist, and the world is my audience. It sounds strange because it is, and it is, because I am strange.”
David Arnold, Mosquitoland

“Every great character, Iz, be it on page or screen, is multidimensional. The good guys aren't all good, the bad guys aren't all bad, and any character wholly one or the other shouldn't exist at all. Remember this when I describe the antics that follow, for though I am not a villain, I am not immune to villainy.”
David Arnold, Mosquitoland

“When you were born, you cried while the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries while you rejoice.”
David Arnold, Mosquitoland
