“Any movie that has that spirit and says things can be changed is worth making.”

Wim Wenders

“Let me tell you my dream. I was listening to music. My body became compressed into a column. At the top of the column grew anennae of science fiction design which threw lassos of blue electric lights in circles. In their centrifugal motion they captured other waves. The waves of the brain? Seeking to contact other vibrations? The radiations of my brain not only designed fever charts but they were neon-lighted and threw off sparks like electric short circuits."

Anais Nin 'Collages'

"How does a writer take the chaos of life and transform it into art? The raising of a voice is the red thread through chaos. The raising of a voice is the essense of freedom. It is where every writer, every person, must begin... In fact, the freedom that Henry Miller discovered in his voice can inspire women writers as well as men. It is the voice of the outsider, the renegade, the underground prophet — and isn't that, after all, what women still are?"

Erica Jong 'The Devil At Large'
