My grandpa always said there's no finer people. Their hearts are washed clean by both sea and sky. So they're braver than sailors and prouder than regular pilots. <...> The most precious thing to them isn't money or women, it's honor. <...> Haven't you any shame?! You need an American to come and save you? Your mothers would weep! And tell you to take a bath! Porco's come back to go one-on-one with Curtiss. For the honor of the seaplane pilots of the Adriatic! A man without honor or scruples is nothing! Fight fair!

Those who say an assistant director’s job doesn’t allow him any free time for writing are just cowards. Perhaps you can write only one page a day, but if you do it every day, at the end of the year you’ll have 365 pages of script. I began in this spirit, with a target of one page a day. There was nothing I could do about the nights I had to work till dawn, but when I had time to sleep, even after crawling into bed I would turn out two or three pages. Oddly enough, when I put my mind to writing, it came more easily than I had thought it would, and I wrote quite a few scripts.
When you're learning, what you want to do is study something. Study it hard by focusing intently. Then take a break or at least change your focus to something different for awhile. During this time of seeming relaxation, your brain's diffuse mode has a chance to work away in the background and help you out with your conceptual understanding. Your, your neural mortar in some sense has a chance to dry. If you don't do this, if instead, you learn by cramming, your knowledge base will look more like this, all in a jumble with everything confused, a poor foundation.
