Walter Murch Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Walter Murch from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

When I'm actually assembling a scene,
I assemble it as a silent movie.
Even if it's a dialog scene, I lip read what people are saying.
- Walter Murch

Film editing is now something almost everyone can do
at a simple level and enjoy it,
but to take it to a higher level requires the same
dedication and persistence that any art form does.
- Walter Murch

This applies to many film jobs, not just editing:
half the job is doing the job,
and the other half is finding ways to get along with
people and tuning yourself in to the delicacy of the situation.
- Walter Murch

I think every age has a medium that talks to it more
eloquently than the others.
In the 19th century it was symphonic music and the novel.
For various technical and artistic reasons,
film became that eloquent medium for the 20th century.
- Walter Murch

 

You can always make a film somehow.
You can beg, borrow, steal the equipment,
use credit cards, use your friends' goodwill,
wheedle your way into this or that situation.
The real problem is, how do you get people to see it once it is made?
- Walter Murch

Just stop it. Seriously.
Whatever it is. Just stop it.
If only for an hour, a day, a week.
Stop doing it long enough to get a glimpse
of what the change would actually look like.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

As we let our light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
- Marianne Williamson

NO ONE is really different;
each of us is actually a member of the human race.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

intending to leave, talking about leaving -
instead of actually getting up and leaving.
- Erica Jong

"Mother Teresa Prayer"
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
... Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you
of selfish, ulterior motives;
... Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some
false friends and some true enemies;
... Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
... Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
... Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
... Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
... Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
... Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
We can do no great things - only small things with great love.
- although commonly attributed to Mother Teresa,
who kept a copy of this prayer on
the wall of her Calcutta orphanage,
this prayer was actually written by Kent Keith.

Each of us holds a different image of God.
There are as many perspectives on
the nature of God as there are people.
However much any of us may choose to argue,
or to fight and kill, for our point of view,
the nature of God is an unanswerable question.
Perhaps there is a specific answer,
that we will never learn - in this lifetime.
Perhaps the nature of God is so complex and multifaceted
that each view of God describes an aspect of the complex whole.
Or perhaps the nature of God is actually defined by our beliefs.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

- Blaine Lee

I think one of the finest gifts I can give
my friends in the holiday season is to pause
with a long enough quality to actually SEE them.
My calm, unhurried presence communicates

and am contributing right now to another quality memory.
I value you and honor and take the time,
right this moment to pause long enough to truly notice you."
