Famous quotes containing the words stanley kubrick, stanley and/or kubrick:

    Suppose by chance you do get picked up. What have you done? You shot a horse; that isn’t first degree murder; in fact, it isn’t even murder; in fact, I don’t know what it is.

    For when we must resign our vital breath,
    Our Loves by Fate benighted,
    We by this friendship shall survive in death,
    Even in divorce united.
    Weak Love through fortune or distrust
    In time forgets to burn,
    But this pursues us to the Urn,
    And marries either’s Dust.
    —Thomas Stanley (1625–1678)

    Here you are, sir. Main level, please.
    —Stanley Kubrick (b. 1928)
