Bones’ Audio Log #1:
Chief Medical Officer’s log, supplemental. I should have been a farmer. Stayed in Mississippi and bought a nice plot of land, spent my days chasing chickens and sipping lemonade on the porch. Instead I’m about as far from Mississippi as you can get, chasing cures to alien diseases we never even knew existed and drinking stale Romulan ale. And not a porch in sight.

"It’s a funny thing coming home. Nothing changes. Everything looks the same, feels the same, even smells the same. You realize what’s changed, is you."

Eric Roth (via mylittlebookofquotes)

"The moment we cry in a film is not when things are sad but when they turn out to be more beautiful than we expected them to be."

Alain de Botton (via brightwalldarkroom)


"My father took me to see this film in 1950, when I was eight years old. And I’ve never forgotten it. I wouldn’t know how to begin to explain what this film has meant to me over the years. It’s about the joy and exuberance of film-making itself. It’s one of the true miracles of film history. What keeps nourishing me over the years is the spell the film casts, how it weaves the mystery of the obsession of creativity, of the creative drive. It all comes down to that wonderful exchange early in the film when Anton Walbrook confronts Moira Shearer at a cocktail party. ‘Why do you want to dance?’ he asks, and she answers, ‘Why do you want to live?’ The look on his face is extraordinary.’ Over the years, I’ve thought a lot about that exchange. It expresses so much about the burning need for art – the mystery of the passion to create. It’s not that you want to do it, it’s that you have to do it. You have no choice. You have to live it and it comes with a price. But what a time paying it."

—Martin Scorsese, on The Red Shoes (1948)

"A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge."

"When reading, we don’t fall in love with the characters’ appearance. We fall in love with their words, their thoughts, and their hearts. We fall in love with their souls."
