If I can have honesty, it’s easier to overlook mistakes.
– Capt. James T. Kirk
Among other things, you’ll find that you’re not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior. You’re by no means alone on that score, you’ll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You’ll learn from them – if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It’s a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn’t education. It’s history. It’s poetry.
– J. D. Salinger
There’s an honesty to Clark, Kal-El – Kal-El’s the better way of saying it because he is both Superman and Clark – there’s an honesty to him which crosses over on both – I don’t like to use the word ‘identities,’ but I will because I can’t think of a better one. So, it is not that tough to make that swap and change.
– Henry Cavill
When the modern movement began, starting perhaps with the paintings of Manet and the poetry of Baudelaire and Rimbaud, what distinguished the modern movement was the enormous honesty that writers, painters and playwrights displayed about themselves. The bourgeois novel flinches from such notions.
– J. G. Ballard
