Doing films in Latin America is like an act of faith. I mean, you really have to believe in what you're doing because if not, you feel like it's a waste of time because you might as well be doing something that at least pays you the rent.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:40]
Every decision that you make you have to be incredible congruent. It doesn't mean that you have to starve. If you need money, you do something that gives you money, that's normal.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:45]
I always wanted to act, but I never thought it would be my profession. I thought that I'd end up doing other things, but that in the meantime I'd do plays.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:50]
I was little there were times I wanted my parents to be normal. I wanted them to have a religion. I wanted them to have a job, like the parents of every other kid I went to school with.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:55]
In Latin America, you don't do things for the money because there is no money.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:59]
In Mexico you have death very close. That's true for all human beings because it's a part of life, but in Mexico, death can be found in many things.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:04]
In Mexico, theater is very underground, so if you're a theater actor it's very difficult to make a living. But it's also a very beautiful pathway to knowledge and to an open education.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:09]
Life certainly points it out to you - 'you can go this way or the other way.' You have to decide and it's a very strong decision because, would you sleep well knowing that you're living in the best place, but you're letting the place where you should live alone?More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:15]
You know, Motorcycle Diaries has no incredible stories, no sudden plot twists, it doesn't play that way. It's about recognizing that instance of change and embracing it.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:23]
A part of sexuality may go to research, and a much larger part must lead to aesthetic creation. The art of the future will, because of the very opportunities and materials it will have at its command, need an infinitely stronger formative impulse than it does now.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:41]
As experimentation becomes more complex, the need for the co-operation in it of technical elements from outside becomes greater and the modern laboratory tends increasingly to resemble the factory and to employ in its service increasing numbers of purely routine workers.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:57]
Hunger and sex still dominate the primitive mammalian side of human existence, but at the present time it looks as if humanity were within sight of their satisfaction. Permanent plenty, no longer a Utopian dream, awaits the arrival of permanent peace.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:06]
It is characteristic of science that the full explanations are often seized in their essence by the percipient scientist long in advance of any possible proof.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:12]
Marxists have some way of analyzing the development of affairs which enables them to judge far in advance of scientific thinkers what the trend of social and economic development is to be.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:21]
Naturalism aimed at giving the primitive wishes full play but failed because these wishes are too primitive, too infantile, too inconsistent with themselves to be satisfied even by the greatest license.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:26]
Political and social events must also be effective, but not in a very obvious fashion. But political confusion and prolonged peace undoubtedly affect creative thought but whether they respectively hinder or help it is not at all certain.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:31]
Religious suffering is at once the expression of real suffering and a protest against real suffering. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the sentiment of the heartless world, as it is the soul of soulless condition. It is the opium of the people.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:36]
Scientific corporations might well become almost independent states and be enabled to undertake their largest experiments without consulting the outside world - a world which would be less and less able to judge what the experiments were about.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:41]
The human mind evolved always in the company of the human body, and of the animal body before it was human. The intricate connections of mind and body must exceed our imagination, as from our point of view we are peculiarly prevented from observing them.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:47]
The present aristocracy of western culture, at the moment when it most clearly dominates the world, is being imitated rapidly and successfully in every eastern country.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:51]
The problem is essentially that of communications to an army in action. After a rapid advance communications become disorganized, and there is a temporary halting until they are again in working order.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:01]
The psychology of a complex mind must differ almost as much from that of a simple, mechanized mind as its psychology would from ours; because something that must underlie and perhaps be even greater than sex is involved.
More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:06]
The recognition of the art that informs all pure science need not mean the abandonment for it of all present art, rather it will mean the completion of the transformation of art that has already begun.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:17]
The relevance of Marxism to science is that it removes it from its imagined position of complete detachment and shows it as a part, but a critically important part, of economy and social development.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:27]
There are two futures, the future of desire and the future of fate, and man's reason has never learned to separate them.More John Bernal [10/14/2011 01:10:31]
