Favourite Lines I Wrote Today:
Sam was sat ata table by himself with a phone to his ear writing down numbers on a yellow legal pad. ‘Charlie, I don’t need your emotions, I need figures and facts and numbers. If I wanted to waste my time hearing someone cry I’d’ve called my mother and reminded her that I’m not a doctor.
Lines I Wish I Had Written:
A fellow will remember a lot of things you wouldn’t think he’d remember. You take me. One day, back in 1896, I was crossing over to Jersey on the ferry, and as we pulled out, there was another ferry pulling in, and on it there was a girl waiting to get off. A white dress she had on. She was carrying a white parasol. I only saw her for one second. She didn’t see me at all, but I’ll bet a month hasn’t gone by since that I haven’t thought of that girl.
From Citizen Kane by Orson Welles.
