And it is, all in all, a pretty good show. There is a tendency, at least among journalists, to take Mr. Gibson as either a monster or a genius, a false choice that he frequently seems intent on encouraging. Is he a madman or a visionary? Should he be shunned or embraced? Censured or forgiven?
-A.O.Scott, N.Y.Times review of Apocalypto

His life was what it was. Because children grow up, we think a child's purpose is to grow up. But a child's purpose is to be a child.
-Tom Stoppard, Shipwreck (The Coast of Utopia, Part II)
