Ye Gods! but she is wondrous fair!
For me her constant flame appears;
The garland she hath culled, I wear

Ye Gods! but she is wondrous fair!
And I, so plain a man am I!

- Murphy's Romance (movie quote)


~ You sound just like all the other artists I have met. No one should expect perfection when they are first starting out. ... Take a look ... it's a special kind of rock called a geode. Hold it close to our eye and look inside. When you first become an artist you're like that rock. You're in a raw, natural state with hidden gems inside. YOu have to dig down deep ** and find the emeralds {tablet} tucked away inside you. And that's just the beginning. Once you've found your gems, you have to polish them. It takes a lot of hard work. Oh, and here's the tricky part look at the crack in the geode ... You see that big green crystal there? You could spend years polishing that and it wouldn't be much at all. The smaller crystals are much more valuable { good things come in small packages} and there may be some even deeper inside we can;t see which are even more precious ...
+ ~ What if I look inside myself and don't find any gems? What if I'm just a rock?? I'm going to try anyway! I'll write that story!!!

- Whisperer of the Heart (anime movie quote)

+ I'm stuck. Does it get any easier?
~ no. Yes. It gets easier ... The more you know who you are, and what you want, the less you ... let things upset you.
+ I just don't know what I'm supposed to be. U know? I tried being a writer, but ... I hate what I wrote. And I tried taking pictures, but they're so mediocre, you know. Every girl goes through a photography phase. You know ... like horses. You know ..? Take ..uh ...dumb pictures of your feet.
~ You'll figure that out. I'm not worried about you. Keep writing.
+ What about marriage. Does that get easier?
~ That's hard. We used to have a lot of fun. Lydia would come with me when I made movies. And we would laugh about it all. Now, she doesn't want to leave the kids and she doesn't ... need me to be there. The kids miss me, but they're fine. And it gets a whole lot more when you have kids.

- Lost In Translation (movie quote)
