Daniel Day-Lewis
You don’t merely give over your creativity to making a film—you give over your life! In theatre, by contrast, you live these two rather strange lives simultaneously; you have no option but to confront the mould on last night’s washing-up.
Day-Lewis quotes
The thing about performance, even if it’s only an illusion, is that it is a celebration of the fact that we do contain within ourselves infinite possibilities.
[re: Abraham Lincoln] "Shall we stop this bleeding."

Day-Lewis Daniel quotes
[re: Abraham Lincoln] "For whatever reason, and I can't explain why - that moment at which one is drawn into the orbit, irrevocably, of a life. I felt the tug of that orbit. I didn't know why; I was quite alarmed by it..."
Day-Lewis Daniel
Being at the centre of a film is a burden one takes on with innocence—the first time. Thereafter, you take it on with trepidation.
