Quote by Eric Jerome Dickey
Once desire was turned on, combustion gave it a life of its own. Once it was turned on it became a raging wildfire, uncontrollable and uncontainable, the type of conflagration that had to be allowed to burn itself out.
This quote suggests that once desire is ignited, it takes on a fierce and powerful life of its own. Just like a wildfire, desire becomes uncontrollable and cannot be contained. It burns intensely and must be allowed to naturally run its course until it exhausts itself. The quote highlights the overwhelming nature of desire, emphasizing its unquenchable force and the necessity to let it run its course rather than trying to suppress or control it.
The vice I am talking of is Pride or Self-Conceit: and the virtue opposite to it, in Christian morals, is called Humility...According to Christian teachers, the essential vice, the utmost evil, is Pride. Unchastity, anger, greed, drunkenness, and all that, are mere flea bites in comparison: it was through Pride that the devil became the devil: Pride leads to every other vice: it is the complete anti-God state of mind.
I'm trying to figure myself out through my movies. Whether it's big stuff like what we're doing here, or little stuff like, 'Why aren't I happier?' With every film I feel like I'm apologising for something. I feel I'm most successful when I'm looking for something that embarrasses me about my character that I'd like to expose.
