Stellovsky (Tom Jansen) to Fyodor Dostoevsky (Michael Gambon): He is a magnet for misfortune. If he was happy do you think he could write? (The Gambler, directed by Károly Makk, 1997).
“You are all waiting – yes, waiting – for something to happen. Each one of you individually is hoping for a brighter future. We want you to learn the lesson that eternity is now, the future is now. There is neither past, nor present, nor future as separate periods of time: all is within the soul’s embrace now. It is your reaction to the now which makes your future. Never look to the future and anticipate this, that or the other. Live today, with God, and no future can hold for you any greater joy than is yours today. Many folk spend their days waiting for something to happen, for something to turn up. This is to live in fear, and today we would help you see the foolishness of this. Live today. Live and be at peace, and you have entered your kingdom of heaven.
"Certainly I was typed. But what is typing. It is a trademark, a means by which the public recognizes you. Actors work all their lives to achieve that. I got mine with just one picture. … My dear old Monster, I owe everything to him. He’s my best friend." - Boris Karloff.
