„In films we see extremes, because it’s where you have turning points.“

As quoted in "Emotional Intelligence" by James Mottram, in The Sunday Herald (8 January 2006)
Kontekst: I think the characters I play go through tunnels, like in Three Colours : Blue, for example, where she’s lost everything... In The English Patient, she loses her best friend; this patient is dying in front of her – there’s no hope, so she’s going to start from the bottom. In films we see extremes, because it’s where you have turning points. Before I thought there was a common denominator between my films — as if all my characters were sisters – but I’m not so sure now.

„I think Donkey Punch is an extreme thriller or an extreme reality-based thriller. The whole point of the film is it's grounded in reality.“

Paul Robeson Fotografia

„Films make me into some cheap turn…You bet they'll never let me play a part in a film where a Negro is on top.“

—  Paul Robeson American singer and actor 1898 - 1976

As quoted in Paul Robeson : The Whole World in His Hands (1981) by Susan Robeson, p. 92

Friedrich Nietzsche Fotografia

„We cannot help but see Socrates as the turning-point, the vortex of world history.“

—  Friedrich Nietzsche, książka The Birth of Tragedy

Źródło: The Birth of Tragedy (1872), p. 73
Kontekst: We cannot help but see Socrates as the turning-point, the vortex of world history. For if we imagine that the whole incalculable store of energy used in that global tendency had been used not in the service of knowledge but in ways applied to the practical — selfish — goals of individuals and nations, universal wars of destruction and constant migrations of peoples would have enfeebled man's instinctive zest for life to the point where, suicide having become universal, the individual would perhaps feel a vestigial duty as a son to strangle his parents, or as a friend his friend, as the Fiji islanders do: a practical pessimism that could even produce a terrible ethic of genocide through pity, and which is, and always has been, present everywhere in the world where art has not in some form, particularly as religion and science, appeared as a remedy and means of prevention for this breath of pestilence.

Sun Tzu Fotografia

„Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness.“

—  Sun Tzu, książka Sztuka wojenna Sun Zi

Alternative translation: Subtle and insubstantial, the expert leaves no trace; divinely mysterious, he is inaudible. Thus he is master of his enemy's fate.
Alternative translation: O divine art of subtlety and secrecy! Through you we learn to be invisible, through you inaudible and hence we can hold the enemy's fate in our hands.
The Art of War, Chapter VI · Weaknesses and Strengths
Oryginał: (zh) 微乎微乎,至于无形;神乎神乎,至于无声;故能为敌之司命。
Kontekst: Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent's fate.

Jimmy Carter Fotografia

„We are at a turning point in our history.“

—  Jimmy Carter American politician, 39th president of the United States (in office from 1977 to 1981) 1924

Presidency (1977–1981), The Crisis of Confidence (1979)
Kontekst: We know the strength of America. We are strong. We can regain our unity. We can regain our confidence. We are the heirs of generations who survived threats much more powerful and awesome than those that challenge us now. Our fathers and mothers were strong men and women who shaped a new society during the Great Depression, who fought world wars, and who carved out a new charter of peace for the world.
We ourselves are the same Americans who just 10 years ago put a man on the Moon. We are the generation that dedicated our society to the pursuit of human rights and equality. And we are the generation that will win the war on the energy problem and in that process rebuild the unity and confidence of America.
We are at a turning point in our history. There are two paths to choose. One is a path I've warned about tonight, the path that leads to fragmentation and self- interest. Down that road lies a mistaken idea of freedom, the right to grasp for ourselves some advantage over others. That path would be one of constant conflict between narrow interests ending in chaos and immobility. It is a certain route to failure.
All the traditions of our past, all the lessons of our heritage, all the promises of our future point to another path, the path of common purpose and the restoration of American values. That path leads to true freedom for our Nation and ourselves. We can take the first steps down that path as we begin to solve our energy problem.
Energy will be the immediate test of our ability to unite this Nation, and it can also be the standard around which we rally. On the battlefield of energy we can win for our Nation a new confidence, and we can seize control again of our common destiny.
