Now we sit through Shakespeare in order to recognize the quotations.
-- Orson Welles
Is this how we sit through church and listen to Scripture? To recognize the quotations?
Probably more than we'd like to admit.
"The truth isn't the truth until people believe you, and they can't believe you if they don't know what you're saying, and they can't know what you're saying if they don't listen to you, and they won't listen to you if you're not interesting, and you won't be interesting unless you say things imaginatively, originally, freshly."
-- Bill Bernbach
