“ Automobiles have always been part of my life, and I'm sure they always will be. What is it about them that moves me?

“ If anyone thinks they'd rather be in a different part of history, they're probably not a very good student of history. Life sucked in the old days. People knew very little, and you were likely to die at a young age of some horrible disease. You'd probably have no teeth by now. It would be particularly awful if you were a woman. ”

- Maria Bello

“ I am just postmodern enough not to trust 'postmodern' as a description of our times, for it privileges the practices and intellectual formations of modernity. Calling this a postmodern age reproduces the modernist assumption that history must be policed by periods. ”

- Stanley Hauerwas

“ Coming up in the Bay Area and being African American in a city that has a history of complex issues of violent crime, interaction with the police is always intense.

- Ryan Coogler

“ If Beethoven had been killed in a plane crash at the age of 22, it would have changed the history of music and of aviation. ”
