Stanley Kubrick: Quotes (35 person items)

""I think the big mistake in schools is trying to teach children anything, and by using fear as the basic motivation.

"All you can do is either pose questions or make truthful observations about human behaviour. The only morality is not to be dishonest.” "I think that one of the problems with twentieth-century art is its "

"If man merely sat back and thought about his impending termination, and his terrifying insignificance and aloneness in the cosmos, he would surely go mad, or succumb to a numbing sense o"

"Bergman February 9, 1960 Dear Mr. Bergman, You have most certainly received enough acclaim and success throughout the world to make this note quite unnecessary. But for whatever it's worth, I should like to add my praise and gratitude as a fellow director for the unearthly and brilliant contribution you have made to the world by your films (I have never been in Sweden and have therefore never had the pleasure of seeing your theater work).

"The Burning Secret and Natural Child In 1956, after MGM turned down Harris and Kubrick's request to film Paths of Glory, they invited him to look through their other properties. Harris and Kubrick discovered Stefan Zweig's novel The Burning Secret, in which a young baron tries to seduce a young Jewish woman by first befriending her twelve-year-old son, who eventually becomes wise to the situation. Kubrick was very excited about this novel and hired novelist Calder Willingham to produce a screenp"
