In your twenties you’re fiercely screaming who you are, but you have only half a notion of who you are. Then as you grow older, you whisper who you are, but people are closer to you, and they listen. By that time, you have half a notion, a quarter of a notion, of who you are. I think the tragedy is when you finally have all the people that you need surrounding you, and you have nothing left to say.
― Guillermo del Toro, Cabinet of Curiosities
My imagination functions much better when I don’t have to speak to people.
― Patricia Highsmith
