tales

Happiness is like those palaces in fairy tales whose gates are guarded by dragons: we must fight in order to conquer it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The proverbial German phenomenon of the verb-at-the-end about which droll tales of absentminded professors who would begin a sentence, ramble on for an entire lecture, and then finish up by rattling off a string of verbs by which their audience, for whom the stack had long since lost its coherence, would be totally nonplussed, are told, is an excellent example of linguistic recursion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is not the first duty of the novelist to provide blueprints for insurrection, or uplifting tales of successful resistance for the benefit of the opposition. The naming of what is there is what is important.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Religions are the great fairy tales of conscience.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Educating a son I should allow him no fairy tales and only a very few novels. This is to prevent him from having 1. the sense of romantic solitude (if he is worth anything he will develop a proper and useful solitude) which identification with the hero gives. 2. cant ideas of right and wrong, absurd systems of honor and morality which never will he be able completely to get rid of, 3. the attainment of ideals, of a priori desires, of a priori emotions. He should amuse himself with fact only: he will then not learn that if the weak younger son do or do not the magical honorable thing he will win the princess with hair like flax.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Baxter: Leave these people alone. They mean you no harm.

It's a fairy tale about the guys who wrote fairy tales through the eyes of Terry Gilliam, ... This film was actually an excuse for Terry to create an entire world. He does this so well with wide-angle lenses. Terry's frames are so densely packed with information that you can't take it all in the first time.More [05/24/2006 12:05:00]

Narrator: Fairy tales tell, as their labels imply / Stories of magic, of creatures that fly / With giants and dragons and ogres and elves / And inanimate objects that speak for themselves / There's romance and danger and plotting of schemes / There's good guys and bad guys and some guys in-between / A fairy tale also reveals some sort of truth / The perils of choices we make in our youth./ But our story today is different in theme./ For our hero had no choice or so it would seem./ It starts with a fairy bestowing a spell./ This one's a baby named Ella of Frell.More [10/10/2007 12:10:00]
Grand Dame: I find your collection of folk tales quite brilliant, actually.
Jacob Grimm: Thank you.
Grand Dame: But I must say, I was terribly disturbed when I read your version of the Little Cinder Girl.
Jacob Grimm: Well, there are those who swear that Perrault's telling with its Fairy Godmother and um...

Traci Levine: Thank God. She's finally leaving.
Andrew: Can you believe Entertainment Weekly called her "the new sweetheart of American cinema?"
Traci Levine: That cunt? She made Julie take my table because she thought I hadn't bathed recently - like she should talk. Did you see the way she eats?
Andrew: Yeah. Did you check out her legs? Now I know why they call 'em calves.
Christian Markelli: I bet after sex, she smokes a ham.
[Lila appears]
Lila Montagne: Andrew, darling, a glass of that cuvée. And people, I do hope we're not speaking disparagingly about our clientele. Gossip is so ignoble, especially regarding those less fortunate.
Traci Levine: Less fortunate, that bitch?
Andrew: You know something. Come on, tell!
Lila Montagne: Please, no. I would never tell tales such as... well, with the frequency she does it, the poor child must think that binging and purging are aerobic exercises.
Christian Markelli: No way! She hardly looks bulimic!
Lila Montagne: Yes. Well, if I were a different sort, I'd suggest more of the purging and a little less of the binging.More [07/11/2008 12:07:00]
Uncle Remus:
There's other ways of learnin' 'bout the behind feet of a mule than gettin' kicked by him, sure as I'm named Remus. And just because these here tales is about critters like Br'er Rabbit an' Br'er Fox, that don't mean it can't happen to folks! So 'scuse me for sayin' so, but them who can't learn from a tale about critters, just ain't got the ears tuned for listenin'.

Title Card:
O Masters, O Noble Persons, O Brothers, know you that in the time of the Caliph Harun-Al-Rashid, there lived on the golden shore of Persia a man of adventure called Sinbad the Sailor. Strange and wondrous were the tales told of him and his voyages. But who, shall we surmise, gave him his immortality? Who, more than all other sons of Allah, spread glory to the name of Sinbad? Who else, O Brother, but -



Sinbad:
- Sinbad the Sailor! Know me, O Brothers, for the truth of my words, and by the ears of the Prophet, every word I have spoken is truth!

Larry "Bud" Melman:
Good evening. Certain NBC executives feel it would be a little unkind to present this show without just a word of friendly warning. We're about to unfold a show featuring David Letterman, a man of science who sought to create a show after his own image -- without reckoning upon God. It's one of the strangest tales ever told. I think it will thrill you. It may shock you. It might even horrify you. So, if any of you feel that you don't care to subject your nerves to such a strain, now's your chance to...well, we've warned you.

Narrator:
This is a strange story - a story unlike anything you have ever heard. It is a story of madness - of cruel and unforgettable death - fantastic, unreal and horrible! Through the ages, man has beheld the fear of death. From the moment life enters the human body until the last earthly flicker of his soul, fear holds him in its icy grip - the hopes, the future; yes, his very life. There have been many tales of fear - legends of Frankenstein, of Dracula, of monsters and werewolves. But in all history, no one person has seen or witnessed more of the many strange deaths of humans than a man we shall call - Doctor Terror!

Caretaker:
[voiceover] It's said that the West was built on legends. Tall tales that help us make sense of things too great or too terrifying to believe. This is the legend of the Ghost Rider.

Narrator:
There was a mean chapter in history when cats were condemned and persecuted, a dark age, when the world was filled with strange fears and superstitions. It was believed that evil traveled the land in human forms and thousands of innocent people were hanged or burnt at the stake for witchcraft or sorcery. They were condemned by the words of the ignorant, spreading through towns and villages, twisting and turning into fantastic and monsterous tales. These tales became known as legends, one of them held that anyone or anything who traveled by night was an evil spirit and to blame for any sickness in the community.

Narrator:
He wrote constantly: newspaper stories, poetry, plays, political diatribes, travel pieces, irreverent musings about religion, and a series of autobiographical sketches noted as much, he admitted, for the tall tales they spun as for the truth they told. And he wrote books, books read by millions, including the deceptively simple story of a backwards boy and a runaway slave that showed his people a whole new way to think about themselves.

Here they store what came before. Pain and suffering from days of yore. Before and after, tears and laughter. After comes before, before comes after. Past and future and then, hereafter.

Someday, your story will be here, too.

Cassander:
Alexander, if we must fight, do so with stealth. Use your numbers well; we should attack tonight when they least expect us.



Alexander:
I didn't cross Asia to steal this victory, Cassander.



Cassander:
No, you are too honorable for that, no doubt influenced from sleeping with tales of Troy under your pillow. But your father was no lover of Homer's.



Parmenion:
The lands west of the Euphrates, Alexander, and his daughter's hand in marriage! Since when has a Greek ever been given such honors?



Alexander:
These are not honors, Parmenion, they're bribes! Which the Greeks have accepted too long! You forget, Parmenion, that the man who murdered my father lies across the valley floor.



Parmenion:
Come, Alexander, we're not really sure if it was Persian gold behind the assassination. It is no matter! Your father taught you never to surrender your reason to your passion! I urge you, with all my experience, regroup! Fall back to the coast, raise a larger force!



Alexander:
I would, if I were Parmenion. But I am Alexander. And no more than earth has two suns will Asia bear two kings. These are my terms. And if Darius isn't a coward who hides behind his men then he'll come to me tomorrow. And *when* he bows down to Greece, Alexander will be merciful.

[after reading a letter sent by his mother]



Alexander:
It's a high ransom she charges for nine months lodging in the womb.



Hephaistion:
Bring her to Babylon, Alexander. It'll give her such joy.



Alexander:
Joy! I am the cracked mirror of her dreams... Stay with me tonight Hephaistion.



Hephaistion:
What bothers you?



Alexander:
I see in her everything I fear. Yet I have no idea what it is; this fear. She was always so sure I was born of Zeus. Why, Hephaistion?



Hephaistion:
I think there are things beyond our imagining. Like the lightening. Tales of strange conceptions. I don't doubt it.



Alexander:
What is being told me? What destiny do I have?



Hephaistion:
Well, if I'm Patroclus, I die first. Then you, Achilles. The generals are upset. They question your obsession with Darius. They say it was never meant for you to be king of Asia.



Alexander:
Naturally. They want only to return to their homes rich with gold, but I have seen the future, Hephaistion! I've seen it now a thousand times, on a thousand faces. These people want, need, change. Aristotle was wrong about them.



Hephaistion:
How so?



Alexander:
Look at those we've conquered. They leave their dead unburied, they smash their enemies skulls and drink them as dust, they mate in public! How can they think, or sing, or write when none can read? But as Alexander's army they could go where they never thought possible. They can soldier, or work in the cities. From the Alexandrias, from Egypt to the outer ocean. We could connect these lands, Hephaistion. And the people.



Hephaistion:
Some say these Alexandrias have become extensions of Alexander himself. They draw people into the cities so as to make slaves.



Alexander:
But we've freed them, Hephaistion, from the Persias, where everyone lived as slaves! To free the people of the world! Such would be beyond the glory of Achilles. Beyond Heracles! A feat to rival Prometheus, who was always a friend to man.



Hephaistion:
Remember the fates of these heroes. They suffered, greatly.



Alexander:
We all suffer. Your father, mine. They all came to the end of their time and in the end, when it's over, all that matters is what you've done.



Hephaistion:
You once said the fear of death drives all men. Are there no other forces? Is there not love in your life, Alexander? What would you do if you ever reached the end of the world? I wonder sometimes, if it's not your mother you run from, so many years, so many miles between you, what is it you fear?



Alexander:
Who knows these things? When I was a child my mother thought me divine; my father, weak. Which am I, Hephaistion? Weak or divine? All I know is I trust only you in this world. I've missed you. I need you. It is you I love, Hephaistion. No other.



Hephaistion:
You still hold you head cocked like that.



Alexander:
[laughing] I have to stop that.



Hephaistion:
No, like a dear listening in the wind you strike me still, Alexander. You have eyes like no other. I sound as stupid as a school boy, but you're everything I care for. And by the sweet breath of Aphrodite I'm so jealous of losing you to this world you want so badly.



Alexander:
You'll never lose me, Hephaistion. I'll be with you always. 'Til the end.

Philip:
I'm sure you remember Achilles and the tales of Troy.



Young Alexander:
He's my favorite.



Philip:
Why?



Young Alexander:
Because he loved Patroclus, and avenged his death. Because he lived without fear.



Philip:
Some say he was a hotheaded fool, who fought only for himself and not for Greece.



Young Alexander:
