J. R. R. Tolkien's handwritten letter discussing the motivation behind the Lord of the Rings.[x]

"I wrote The Lord of the Rings because I wished ‘to try my hand at a really long story that would hold the attention of readers, amuse them, delight them, and at times maybe excite them or deeply move them."
 ”her heart was so cold that she could hold ice in her mouth and it would never melt.” - deathless, catherynne m. valente

The Grand Budapest Hotel (2013, dir. Wes Anderson)

❝ I’m interested in humans. I think humans are so fascinating, and the fact that we’re like, beautiful, and violent, and vile, all in the same breath. That the mundane and the exalted can live very simultaneously; and I think I’m more interested now in not the romanticized version of what people are, but what people actually are. Thats the stuff that just like, totally gets me off. ❞
-Annie Clark (St. Vincent)
