There are few things more fundamentally encouraging and stimulating than seeing someone else die.
Stanley Kubrick   Category:

What do you take me for? A fourteen karat sucker?

When a man cannot choose, he ceases to be a man.
Stanley Kubrick   Category:

You sit at the board and suddenly your heart leaps. Your hand trembles to pick up the piece and move it. But what chess teaches you is that you must sit there calmly and think about whether it's really a good idea and whether there are other, better ideas.
Stanley Kubrick   Category:

You're an idealist, and I pity you as I would the village idiot.
