THEY SAID

NOW Magazine - Anniversary special - - Toronto Symphony Orchestra -

I wish I could trust the stu­dios, but in Hol­ly­wood there a lot of peo­ple in high places who should be sell­ing fruit. – Robert Ben­ton, direc­tor of Kramer Vs. Kramer When I was young and peo­ple did ex­press in­ter­est in my tal­ent, it ended up that they also wanted to sleep with me. – nov­el­ist Ti­mothy Find­ley on the curse of self-doubt The thing about writ­ing po­etry is that you go to a party and peo­ple learn that you’re a poet, they in­tro­duce you with­out fail to the most hor­ri­ble per­son at the party who is an­other poet. And you are trapped by this per­son for the rest of the night. So I de­cided I couldn’t be a poet any more. – poet-turned-screen­writer John Pa­trick Shan­ley, who wrote Moon­struck Any­way, you want me to level with you? Why should I level with you? I don’t even know you. Do you level with strangers? I don’t. – Tom Waits lev­els for no one
