„So I close in saying that I might have been given a bad break, but I've got an awful lot to live for.“
— Lou Gehrig American baseball player 1903 - 1941
Speech made on Lou Gehrig Appreciation Day at Yankee at Yankee Stadium (July 4, 1939)
„To believe something, one must imagine that it is more probable than not. Unless you show him what is probable or he realizes it himself, he may tell you that he believes and yet he will not believe.“
— Cyrano de Bergerac French novelist, dramatist, scientist and duelist 1619 - 1655
Context: O just ones, hear me! You cannot condemn this man, monkey or parrot for saying that the moon is the world he comes from. If he is a man, all men are free. Is he then not free to imagine what he wants, even if he does not come from the moon? Can you force him to have only your visions? Impossible! You may make him say that he believes that the moon is not a world, but still he will not believe it. To believe something, one must imagine that it is more probable than not. Unless you show him what is probable or he realizes it himself, he may tell you that he believes and yet he will not believe. Sun-being to the court

„There's a detachment that you need as a writer. And as a young man, I probably had more detachment than I have today.“
— Norman Mailer American novelist, journalist, essayist, playwright, film maker, actor and political candidate 1923 - 2007
Context: There's a detachment that you need as a writer. And as a young man, I probably had more detachment than I have today. So that part of me was just looking at the battlefield, and it was certainly full of horrors. There was a lieutenant with us and a driver and another enlisted man like myself. And I think they were shocked profoundly. I just thought — this is a cold and cruel thing to say, but it's the way a writer is — I thought, "Oh, this is good." Not that it was good that all these people are dead. But "Oh, it's so good for writing." There was a sense of, "This can be used."
„Screen credit is valuable only when it's given you. If you're in a position to give yourself credit, you don't need it.“
— Irving Thalberg American film producer 1899 - 1936
Quoted by Norman J. Zierold in The Moguls (New York: Coward-McCann, 1969). Also quoted as "Credit you give yourself is not worth having." Thalberg never took an onscreen credit in films he produced; MGM gave him a screen credit for The Good Earth (1937), released after his death.
