"I've never had a movie that got great reviews. I've had movies that got different levels of good and bad reviews... but you can more or less count on plenty of bad reviews. "
- Wes Anderson
'Valor consists in the power of self recovery, so that a man cannot have his flank surned, cannot be out generalled, but put him where you will, he stands. This can only be by his preferring truth to his past apprehension of truth, and his alert acceptance of it from whatever quarter. "
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
"When you start writing something and you get that little glow- the second you start imagining the accolades- you've just at that moment had it. You cease to be in a channel. You've actually blown your concentration, and you don't know it yet. Someone once said to me that, in order to do great, great work, there are two things you don't ever want to receive: someone saying you can't do it, and accolades. You have to maintain a purity of perspective and motivation."
- Michael Mann

“Vanity is something that will only get in the way of doing your best work, and ultimately if you’re truly vain you care more about your work than how you look in your work. I actually consider myself a pretty vain guy when it comes to that.”
- Philip Seymour Hoffman
