Tim Burton:
I have a problem when people say something's real or not real, or normal or abnormal. The meaning of those words for me is very personal and subjective. I've always been confused and never had a clearcut understanding of the meaning of those kinds of words.

Henry Ward Beecher said:

"A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves."
