Mr. Buckley, whose hair is cut in a short, modestly spiky buzz, pauses and shoots an intense stare out the window. "There was a woman outside who was talking to someone, and I was trying to guess from her eyes what she sounded like," he said softly. "You can tell everything from the eyes."

The only way to really make it
is to put every bit of your being into the thing that only you can provide.
The only angle is the art that you choose, that only you can provide.
And to do that, you have to be quiet for a long time and find out what you bring forth.
You have to know what's in yourself
—all your eccentricities, all your banalities, the full flavor of your woe and your joy.
What does it look like? What does it feel like? What makes it different from everybody else's?
It's totally subjective.
You're just given the task of bringing it up.

I'd like to write and direct my own film.
It's all in my head.
Some people surrender their freedom willingly--but others are are forced to surrender it.
Imprisonment begins with birth.
Society, parents; they refuse to allow you to keep the freedom you are born with.
There are subtle ways to punish a person for daring to feel. You see that everyone around you has destroyed his true feeling nature.
You imitate what you see.
As long as there are people, they can remember words and combonations of words. Nothing else can survive a holocaust but poetry and songs.
No one can remember an entire novel.
No one can describe a film, a piece of sculpture, a painting,
but so long as there are human beings, songs and poetry can continue.
Let's see. I guess it's just a natural aging process. You know? Maybe it's not being as physically active but I think it's mainly it's just filling out. some people have that kind of build ... I would say if you perform alot and sweated alot and moved around you would probably keep trim. and i drink alot of beer. if you drink hard liquor when you're recording, pretty soon you're so out of it, you can't do anything, but beer gives you a little energy and you can keep going all night.. beer really puts on the pounds.
