A critic is, essentially, a fan with an IQ; a critic has to be a fan, because nothing other than love can sustain critical enthusiasm over the course of years.

(Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle Movie Critic)

Were I some sleeping Adam, to wake and find you resting at my rib, to share these things that God has done, to walk you through the garden, to counsel your timid steps, your bewildered eye, your heart so slow to love, so careful to love, so sheepish that I stepped up my aim and became a man.

(Donald Miller, in “Polaroids”)

I would rather have a prostate exam on live TV operated on by a guy with cold hands than have a Facebook page.

(George Clooney, Schauspieler)

Love is handing your heart to someone and taking the risk that they will hand it back because they don’t want it. That’s why it’s such a crushing ache on the inside. We gave away a part of ourselves and it wasn’t wanted.

Love is a giving away of power. When we love, we give the other person the power in the relationship. They can do what they choose. They can do what they like with our love. They can reject it, they can accept it, they can step toward us in gratitude and appreciation.

Love is a giving away. When we love, we put ourselves out there, we expose ourselves, we allow ourselves to be vulnerable.

(Rob Bell)

Never expect a thank-you, and never do things for a thank-you. That is very liberating.

(Lou Dobbs, Journalist)

When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.

(Eleanor Roosevelt)

Characters in films are just as fake as characters in videogames. Neither exists. Why, despite the pivotal position emotional attachment has in game design, does film do so much better than we do? Are they better writers, or is there another challenge unique to our medium?

(Randy Smith, Spieldesigner, in EDGE 201)
