“I think that throughout history, an error has been reaffirmed in relation to literature, cinema, and everything that emerges as a personal expression. And it was when we started talking about style as something independent in the process of doing. Perhaps it’s a misunderstanding that arose with the birth of religious and palatial architecture. The look of the films is something that can’t be determined a priori of the rest of its conception. Even for me it’s difficult to distinguish the difference between my films and others, just because of their look. I can say that I acknowledge that my films and many others from other directors don’t affirm reality, they rather question it. Question what we call natural. What seems to have arisen without the will of anyone in particular.”

“I had a knockoff Michael Kors bag that said MLK instead of MK. Jada told me that I shouldn’t have knockoff stuff. I told her that my philosophy is, Whatever the bag costs, I should be able to keep that amount of cash in the bag. If it’s a $300 purse, I have to put $300 in cash in that purse. I do not want a bag that is more expensive than the cash I have to put in it. Things are going good for me now, so I am graduating to your Fendis and your Guccis. But I better have the cash equivalent, or I’m not buying the purse. And if things start to go wrong, I’m going right back to my knockoffs. When you’re somebody like me, who’s been homeless, clothes are not that important. Clothes are not a roof over my head, food in my ­stomach, my family’s health—that’s what money is for. But fashion helps get more money. So, we ride.”

“It’s the job of the artist, to exploit connections. You see, I speak on behalf of the world of the artist without hesitation! People don’t realize that the part of the playwright is finding something for people to talk about. If you are writing about a historical episode, or two characters in ‘Hamlet,’ you have a structure for free.”
~ Tom Stoppard
