"...I'll die broke in a downtown Los Angeles flop house and I won't be bitter. I'll have contributed maybe five - ten damned good pictures. They'll name a special academy award for me and you know something? All the wrong guys will get it and I'll be in Hell laughing my ass off." John Wilson
"I figure there's two ways to live in this world. One is you can crawl and kiss ass and write their happy endings. Sign their long term contracts and never take a chance on anything and never fly and never leave Hollywood and save all your God damned money, every cent of it - - And then when you're a healthy looking 50 you die of a stroke because whatever was wild in you has eaten away the muscles of your heart.
The other way is to let the chips fall where they may. Refuse to sign their contracts and tell off the guy who can cut your throat and flatter the little guy who's hanging by a thread that you hold." John Wilson
