"What is history but a fable agreed upon?" - Napoleon Bonaparte
"There's never been a golden age, nostalgia's for the lame. The best is always yet to come, it's that kind of game." - Stephen Duffy
"We know that under the revealed image there is another one which is more faithful to reality, and under this one there is yet another, and again another under this last one, down to the true image of what absolute, mysterious reality that nobody will ever see. Or perhaps, not until the decomposition of every image, every reality." - Michelangelo Antonioni
