Humphrey Bogart

i've always had a huge crush on Humphrey.  apparently he was related to princess diana.




Humphrey DeForest Bogart (December 25, 1899 – January 14, 1957 was an American actor.  He is widely regarded as a cultural icon.  The American Film Institute ranked Bogart as the greatest male star in the history of American cinema. After trying various jobs, Bogart began acting in 1921 and became a regular in Broadway productions in the 1920s and 1930s. When the stock market crash of 1929 reduced the demand for plays, Bogart turned to film. His first great success was as Duke Mantee in The Petrified Forest (1936), and this led to a period of typecasting as a gangster with films such as Angels with Dirty Faces (1938) and B-movies like The Return of Doctor X (1939). His breakthrough as a leading man came in 1941, with High Sierra and The Maltese Falcon. The next year, his performance in Casablanca raised him to the peak of his profession and, at the same time, cemented his trademark film persona, that of the hard-boiled cynic who ultimately shows his noble side. Other successes followed, including To Have and Have Not (1944); The Big Sleep (1946); Dark Passage (1947) and Key Largo (1948), with his wife Lauren Bacall; The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948); In a Lonely Place (1950); The African Queen (1951), for which he won his only Academy Award; Sabrina (1954); and The Caine Mutiny (1954). His last movie was The Harder They Fall (1956). During a film career of almost thirty years, he appeared in 75 feature films.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt


"Of course there's a such thing as love. Everything is made of love. But, I think that there's no such thing as is the love that other people tell you about, the love that you hear about from movies, or from songs, or from your friends or from your parents. You know, you can take what you want and leave the rest from those notions of love but there's no love except for the one that you feel for yourself and it's different for everyone."

"If you're going to put yourself above everybody else, you might end up alone."

"That's what life is: repetitive routines. It's a matter of finding the balance between deviating from those patterns and knowing when to repeat them."

"The most valiant thing you can do as an artist is inspire someone else to be creative."

The above quote is supposedly by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  i have a new crush.  i loved third rock from the sun.
