"We are told with increasing vehemence, that this is a scientific age, that science is transforming the world, but is it not also a mechanized and impersonal age, an analytic and clinical one; an age in which under the hard gloss of affluence there can be detected the murmuring of the starved heart and the uneasy spirit?" – R.S. Thomas
"Everything got arranged in a way that our knowledge is incomplete so that we don’t blemish eternity and a hope remains. Because not knowing means hope. Not knowing also means sublimity, because knowledge is ordinary and cheap." – Andrei Tarkovsky
"When you do not know what you are doing and what you are doing is the best -- that is inspiration." - Robert Bresson
