Famous quotes containing the words cinema, david and/or lean:

    If an irreducible distinction between theatre and cinema does exist, it may be this: Theatre is confined to a logical or continuous use of space. Cinema ... has access to an alogical or discontinuous use of space.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

    Undoubtedly, in the most brilliant successes, the first rank is always sacrificed.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Never to walk from the station’s lamps and laurels
    Carrying my father’s lean old leather case
    Crumbling like the register at the hotel....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
