Big flashy things have my name written all over them. Well… not yet, give me time and a crayon.
Polly: What’s happened to you, Doctor?
First Doctor: I’m not sure, my dear. Comes from an outside influence. Unless this old body of mine is wearing a bit thin.
Classic Who: The Tenth Planet
“A hero is also someone who, in their day to day interactions with the world, despite all the pain, uncertainty and doubt that can plague us, is resiliently and unashamedly themselves. If you can wake up every day and be emotionally open and honest regardless of what you get back from the world then you can be the hero of your own story. Each and every person who can say that despite life’s various buffetings that they are proud to be the person they are is a hero. Now I do have to mention the real heroes of The Trevor Project, the men and women volunteers, all of whom stand up day after day answering the calls of desperate teens whose circumstances have pushed them to the edge of the abyss. To take that call, and say yes, I will be the one who saves this life takes such courage and compassion. Hemingway’s definition of ‘grace under pressure’ seems fitting as the job they do is every bit as important, and every bit as delicate as a soldier defusing a bomb.” -Daniel Radcliffe
- J. K. Rowling: I said to Arthur, my American editor - we had an interesting conversation during the editing of seven - the moment when Harry takes Draco's wand, Arthur said, God, that's the moment when the ownership of the Elder wand is actually transferred? And I said, that's right. He said, shouldn't that be a bit more dramatic? And I said, no, not at all, the reverse. I said to Arthur, I think it really puts the elaborate, grandiose plans of Dumbledore and Voldemort in their place. That actually the history of the wizarding world hinged on two teenage boys wrestling with each other. They weren't even using magic. It became an ugly little corner tussle for the possession of wands. And I really liked that - that very human moment, as opposed to these two wizards who were twitching strings and manipulating and implanting information and husbanding information and guarding information, you know? Ultimately it just came down to that, a little scuffle and fistfight in the corner and pulling a wand away.
- Melissa Anelli: It says a lot about the world at large, I think, about conflict in the world, it's these little things -
- J. K. Rowing: And the difference one individual can make. Always, the difference one individual can make.
I love the geography and the desert. In the summer you can drive into the mountains to escape the heat—it drops 30 degrees. I love the excitement and colors of the strip and the people of Las Vegas. I can’t think of any lows.

“Do you remember the Shire, Mr. Frodo? It’ll be spring soon and the orchards will be in blossom, and the birds will be nesting in the hazel thicket. And the whistle in the summer barley in the Lower fields. And eating the first of the strawberries with cream. Do you remember the taste of strawberries?”
“I’ve always wanted to be a cowboy. I’m on my way. Maybe by the third or fourth album I’ll be Clint Eastwood.” - BF
“They’re nice guys. If we made a record with them it would probably uh, be about friendship; yeah, friendship and love. ‘Probably would never come out, because we’d just be too busy being friends.”
