"There are many different kinds of writers, I like to use the analogy of architects and gardeners. [There are some writers who are architects, and they plan everything, they blueprint everything, and they know before the drive the first nail into the first board what the house is going to look like and where all the closets are going to be, where the plumbing is going to run, and everything is figured out on the blueprints before they actually begin any work whatsoever. And then there are gardeners who dig a little hole and drop a seed in and water it with their blood and see what comes up, and sort of shape it. They sort of know what seed they've planted — whether it's an oak or an elm, or a horror story or a science fiction story, but they don't how big it's going to be, or what shape it's going to take.]I am much more a gardener than an architect." ~George Raymond Richard Martin

“What is honor compared to a woman's love? What is duty against the feel of a newborn son in your arms . . . or the memory of a brother's smile? Wind and words. Wind and words. We are only human, and the gods have fashioned us for love. That is our great glory, and our great tragedy.” ~George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

“When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies but the pack survives.” ~George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

Quote of the Day

"I think we grow up as girls having to deal with a lot of oppressive beauty myths. And Anne is a girl who fails by all standards of what is acceptable and beautiful. She's not pretty. She's not rich. She has no parents. But through sheer exercise of will she makes the world understand how beautiful she is. It's her specialness, her ability to transform how people perceive her, that audiences, particularly girls, want to believe in." ~Megan Follows on her character, Anne Shirley

"Broadway made her, Hollywood immortalized her. She's something constant, something classy, the voice, the diction, born of another time, another place." ~Edward Seckerson on Julie Andrews

"Her outlook has been the key to coping with a fair share of trials throughout her lifetime. As anyone who has read her memoir knows, she was a latchkey kid, raised during the Blitz. Courage, determination, and a glass-half-full perspective saw her through. In recent years, that same resilience has helped her handle other slings and arrows, from the loss of her singing voice to the passing of her husband after over 40 years of marriage. But her sparkle remains undimmed." ~Emma Walton Hamilton on Julie Andrews

"Julie doesn't know she's Julie Andrews. There's not a hint of ego." ~Michael Nouri on working with Julie Andrews in Victor/Victoria Broadway.

(Julie Andrews (Sound of Music) is Julia Elizabeth Wells in real life.)

"[...] something else that struck me about Julie, then and now: a tremendous sense of gratitude. She knows she's talented, but she doesn't think of herself as especially remarkable; she believes that some of her career has been a matter of pure luck and some of it has been due to the fact that people simply like her. She gives the impression that she doesn't really have any idea why that might be the case." ~Robert Wagner, excerpt from his book 'I Loved Her in the Movies: Memories of Hollywood's Legendary Actresses.' (On Julie Andrews)



"Maria, these walls were not meant to shut out problems. You have to face them. You have to live the life you were born to live." ~Mother Abbess
