People think we had a love-hate relationship. Well, I did not love him, nor did I hate him. We had mutual respect for each other, even as we both planned each other's murder.More Werner Herzog quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When you look at the paintings at Chauvet Cave, they're not primitive or like children's little scribbles, it bursts on the scene fully accomplished and when you look through the faces of cultural history, art history, it has never gotten any better.More Werner Herzog quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I've never left my culture. I've left my country, but I've not left my culture. In the same way, you shouldn't be worried why George Lucas is going to the outer galaxy to make a movie.

I go to Thailand or the Peruvian jungle, the Amazon, and I still make Bavarian films.More Werner Herzog quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

There's no evidence of culture, no symbolic depiction, no evidence of music, no evidence of sculptures, no evidence of religious beliefs.More Werner Herzog quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
