Quotes Diana Liked

David Thewlis
“I want that. I want that awful intense and serious unhappiness, cos then I might feel better, and then I might be happy.”
David Thewlis, The Late Hector Kipling

David Thewlis
“I feel like I'm in a film about a struggling artist who keeps getting up at all hours of the night to look at his big, blank empty canvas. And in a way I am. Except that i'm not struggling. I'm Hector Kipling. I might be getting up at all hours of the night to look at my big, blank, empty canvas, but I am not fucking struggling.”
David Thewlis, The Late Hector Kipling

David Thewlis
“I walk to Oxford Street and climb on the number 8. It's freezing and it starts to rain and it's the ugliest bus I've ever seen, rattling down the ugliest streets, in the ugliest city, in the ugliest country, in the ugliest of all possible worlds.”
David Thewlis, The Late Hector Kipling
