Okay, then. What’s the smallest, most intimate gesture?

I once spent a night with somebody in a ruin of a building in a very faraway land. There was no heat. It was dilapidated—about as unromantic as you could imagine. But we lit a fire and had sleeping bags and wine and a shitty old portable DVD player. The battery died halfway through It’s a Wonderful Life. That didn’t really matter. It wasn’t about getting to the end.

"They set up a Skype call and Vallée was met with Leto staring back at him in a wig and dress applying lipstick. “He was hitting on me,” Vallée recalls. “I thought he was going to do this for five minutes, two minutes, and he just did it like until the end of the conversation, 25 minutes later. I hung up and said, ‘This guy’s crazy. He just showed me that he wants the part.’ When he arrived on the set, he got off the plane dressed as a woman, with high heels and everything. And at the end of the shoot, he left dressed as a woman…The guy is a rockstar. A natural rockstar.”"

“In Ireland we admire Daniel Day Lewis and respect Liam Neeson but somewhere inside us we love Colin, because we’re just waiting for him to f**k up you know. We’re just waiting for him to fall in the s**t and be like us.

“Talent and good looks help when you’re trying to make it in the entertainment industry, Colin has them in spades. Deep down he is such a great guy and it comes across on screen, he has that charisma that just comes across. The first time he was ever on screen he was a star. You see it.”

"She taught him that lovers should not separate from each other after making love without admiring each other, without being conquered as well as conquering, so that no feeling of satiation or desolation arises, nor the horrid feeling of misusing or having been misused."

"Nothing is harder, yet nothing is more necessary, than to speak of certain things whose existence is neither demonstrable nor probable. The very fact that serious and conscientious men and women treat them as existing things brings them a step closer to existence and to the possibility of being born."

"She started writing notes and keeping them under her pillow, and then she started writing them on her pillowcase, hoping they would help her have better dreams. And if she couldn’t sleep, she could just read them and be reminded of something so stunningly beautiful that her heart would swell and her bones would sigh and for just a second, the world would not seem like it was going to crush her."

"Flight from the world in dark times of impotence can always be justified, as long as reality is not ignored but constantly acknowledged as the thing that must be escaped"

"I don’t know when I have suffered more; and yet why did I suffer? And what did I suffer? I said, “I love life”; disillusion filled me: all belief fell off me. Hopelessness broke my bones."

"I don’t know about such things but I believe there’s very little that could be experienced in another realm that can’t be experienced here with enough focus, determination and patience. I’m sure there are people who are experiencing a veritable hell on the planet right now and there are those who are living in great peace and happiness and great joy that’s not necessarily dictated by their economic or monetary status or even by their health."

"A book is made from a tree. It is an assemblage of flat, flexible parts (still called ‘leaves’) imprinted with dark pigmented squiggles. One glance at it and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, the author is speaking, clearly and silently, inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another. Books break the shackles of time, proof that humans can work magic."
