Famous quotes containing the word robert:
“You cant build life the way you put blocks together, Toddy.... Did Knox teach you what makes the blood flow? Did he tell you how thoughts come and how they go, and why things are remembered and forgot?... What makes a thought start?... You dont know and youll never know or understand.... Look, look at yourself. Could you be a doctor, a healing man, with the things those eyes have seen? Theres a lot of knowledge in those eyes, but no understanding.”
—Philip MacDonald, and Robert Wise. Gray (Boris Karloff)
