revealing quotes from intriguing sources

We live in a world right now [where] everything not provable, nonlogical, nonlinear, not supported by science or technology, is a childish concern. And we are destroying things that we find tangible... I'm eager to explore themes that lend themselves easily to metaphor. The fantastic is the only tool we have nowadays to explain spirituality to a generation that refuses to believe in dogma or religion. Superhero movies create that kind of mythology. Creature movies, horror movies, create at least a belief in something beyond."

- Guillermo del Toro, creator of the Hellboy movies, Pan's Labyrinth, and director of the upcoming Hobbit movie


Look at these pairing of quotes:

"Madonna is really good at reinventing herself. Perhaps what's adaptive in professional life and makes her so popular in her professional life is maladaptive in her personal life. She reinvents rather than reapplies herself to the commitment."

—psychologist Bethany Marshall, speculating on why Madonna seems to have a hard time making her relationships stick. Tabloids have recently opined that Madonna's marriage with film director Guy Ritchie is on the rocks. [abcnews.com, 7/8/08]

"Madonna always reinvents herself, and that's what I want to do. Whatever comes my way that sounds good, that's what I want to do. Whether it's designing clothes or photography or whatever."

—Miley Cyrus [sfgate.com, 7/4/08]

"[My dream same sex smooch is] Miley Cyrus! She's the lucky girl. It's cool to hear through the grapevine that Miley Cyrus has my song as her ring tone. Maybe [at the August Teen Choice Awards] we'll have another Britney-Madonna moment on stage. How hilarious would that be? Although I don't think it would help her career. However, it would definitely help mine!"

- Katy Perry, who sings the summer's song "I Kissed a Girl." Perry is a former Christian music artist who formerly went by the name Katy Hudson.
