„This is the kind of film that makes you feel intensely alive while you're watching it, and sends you out into the streets afterwards eager to talk deeply and urgently, to the person you are with. Whoever that happens to be.“

— Roger Ebert American film critic, author, journalist, and TV presenter 1942 - 2013
Context: We are connected with some people and never meet others, but it could easily have happened otherwise. Looking back over a lifetime, we describe what happened as if it had a plan.

„An ardent affection for the human race makes enthusiastic characters eager to produce alteration in laws and governments prematurely.“

— Mary Wollstonecraft British writer and philosopher 1759 - 1797
Context: An ardent affection for the human race makes enthusiastic characters eager to produce alteration in laws and governments prematurely. To render them useful and permanent, they must be the growth of each particular soil, and the gradual fruit of the ripening understanding of the nation, matured by time, not forced by an unnatural fermentation.
