Sir Kenneth Branagh quotes
“It's quite hard for people to just accept that they're very contradictory.”

it to his wife, they become two halves of the same person.

“- Henry: I just wanted to ask how you knew.
- William Shakespeare: Knew what?
- Henry: Everything.
- William Shakespeare: My friend, I don't even know how to keep the slugs out of the Hollyhocks.”
“- Henry Wriothesley: We have only Johnson now.
- William Shakespeare: Who laughs at me because I speak no Greek and don't know whether Bohemia has a coast.

“Remember boy, when it comes to women, you're never too old for humiliation.”
“- Peter McGowan: Maybe that's everything in writing: a catchy title.
- Debra Salhany: So is that why you decided to call your first novel 'How to Kill Your Neighbor's Dog'?
- Peter McGowan: Oh, that isn't mere affectation. That's a practical guidebook full of juicy bits on suburban terrorism.”
“- Larry: You're lucky. You got Melanie. There are men who'd die for her.
- Peter McGowan: Yeah, die for her or have her kill you. Either way, you're dead.”
“I have lived long enough to know what I like. What I dislike, I cannot abide.”
“I have seen the fracture of the human soul. So many broken lives, so much pain and anger, giving way to the poison of deep grief, until one crime became many.”
- Tulio: Miguel, you're talking to a horse!

- Commander Bolton: Home.”

“- James Moon: So you're married too?
- Birkin: Sort of. She went off with another chap. Not for the first time. Can't say I blame her really. Her name is Vinny.

“It is important to know what words mean, but it is important to remember that a thousand years from now, no matter who holds the power, history will be written in those words.”
