Stanley Kubrick

Rest in Peace Stanley Kubrick 
“I think the big mistake in schools is trying to teach children anything, and by using fear as the basic motivation. Fear of getting failing grades, fear of not staying with your class, etc. Interest can produce learning on a scale compared to fear as a nuclear explosion to a firecracker.”


“When a man cannot choose, he ceases to be a man.”
“Art consists of reshaping life, but it does not create life nor cause life.”
“Among a great many other things that chess teaches you is to control the initial excitement you feel when you see something that looks good. It trains you to think before grabbing and to think just as objectively when you’re in trouble.”


“It’s crazy how you can get yourself in a mess sometimes and not even be able to think about it with any sense and yet not be able to think about anything else.”
“I never learned anything at all in school and didn’t read a book for pleasure until I was 19 years old.”
