In retrospect, I have come to recognise just how astounding my mother was during our childhood.

It'll reveal itself, I guess.

Very Movie

There are movies where actors aren't characters but movie stars, being cool beyond belief throughout the whole movie. That is what it is.

- Christian Bale

Through Projects

We are probably the only artists in the world who have a 2,000-page book on a work of art that doesn't exist. But in this way, these projects reveal their identity through this whole process. When I'm starting, I only have the slightest idea of how the work of art will exist.

Play Mood

Actors are hard to photograph because they never want to reveal who they are. You don't know if you're getting a character from a Chekhov play or a Polanski film. It depends what mood they're in.

- Benjamin N. Cardozo

I Think Tries

I think shrinks are interesting to write about because you get to see what the character chooses to reveal, and what behaviors or stances the character tries out on the shrink that might not be part of the character's make-up outside of that room. It's an emotional test-kitchen.

- Jill Davis

Brought Reveals

- Elaine Pagels
