Great Quotes @ Brainy Quote

January 5, 2009

 

"To stimulate wildly weak and untrained minds is to play with mighty fires."
– W. E. B. Du Bois

"If my films make one more person miserable, I’ll feel I have done my job."
– Woody Allen

"My generation, faced as it grew with a choice between religious belief and existential despair, chose marijuana. Now we are in our Cabernet stage."
– Peggy Noonan

Both movies and books are often remembered by the perfect line.  It’s your job as a writer to create that perfect line.  However, sometimes your character needs to throw down dialogue that’s so eloquent, so brilliant it has already been uttered.  Brainy Quote is a free site that has gathered an impressive collection of quotes all dichotomized by either topic, author, or type (i.e. mathematician, model, coach etc.). 
 
I wrote a script a while back in which one of the main characters was obsessed with the game of baseball.  I remember combing through the Sports section at the local bookstore trying to find baseball-specific quotes he could relay.  That’s so 1998.  I love technology.
