„Study me as much as you like, you will never know me, for I differ a hundred ways from what you see me to be. Put yourself behind my eyes, and see me as I see myself, for I have chosen to dwell in a place you cannot see.“

—  Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi, Misattributed, Frequently quoted on social media, but was not written by Rumi in Persian.

„Being in darkness and confusion is interesting to me. But behind it you can rise out of that and see things the way the really are.“

—  David Lynch American filmmaker, television director, visual artist, musician and occasional actor 1946
Context: Being in darkness and confusion is interesting to me. But behind it you can rise out of that and see things the way the really are. That there is some sort of truth to the whole thing, if you could just get to that point where you could see it, and live it, and feel it... I think it is a long, long, way off. In the meantime there's suffering and darkness and confusion and absurdities, and it's people kind of going in circles. It's fantastic. It's like a strange carnival: it's a lot of fun, but it's a lot of pain. As quoted in Nightmares in Red, White and Blue: The Evolution of the American Horror Film (2004) by Joseph Maddrey, p. 160
