Famous quotes containing the words film and/or based:
“Is America a land of God where saints abide for ever? Where golden fields spread fair and broad, where flows the crystal river? Certainly not flush with saints, and a good thing, too, for the saints sent buzzing into mans ken now are but poor- mouthed ecclesiastical film stars and cliché-shouting publicity agents.
Their little knowledge bringing them nearer to their ignorance,
Ignorance bringing them nearer to death,
But nearness to death no nearer to God.”
—Sean OCasey (18841964)
“Tempered, gradual animation, the methodical restrain of sensations and energies, the equilibrium of sickness and health in each creaturethis is natures essence, its immutable law, this is what its based on and what it adheres to.”
—Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev (18181883)
