Film Quote (David Thomson)

“Art is not a recreation, a consolation, a pastime, a business…it is the stone on which your knife is sharpened.”

“The human tragedy is not our diligent wars, our arbitrary floods and earthquakes, our ordinary outrages of cruelty…It is that desire is sometimes obscured, and impeded.”

David Thomson, The Big Screen
