What's your favourite quote?

One that keeps coming to mind at the moment is:

"History is made by first timers" by Bill Clinton of all people...

I like “You can’t change the cards you’re dealt – you have to play them.” I forget who said this

I think "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." Mahatma Ghandi, when I'm not thinking "this, too, shall pass"

I live "Find what you love to do, and then work out how to get someone to pay you to do it" My ex-husband used to say this.

And I know "Timing, is everything"

I say "When I want to watch a movie, I make one"


JasonMantis

How many have you made? I'll allow you to use the ones of your daughter cooking, etc...


Onaphobia

If I can include the ones I make with the kids, and the ones I worked on in California, and the ones I've worked on in New Zealand, and interviews, and behind the scenes stuff, and shorts, and things for Uni... no idea.
