Letter to Marlon – Come on now Marlon, put up your dukes

I visualise the beautiful shots could be made with the camera on the front seat of the car showing the road (day and night) unwinding into the windshield, as Sal and Dean yak. I wanted you to play the part because Dean (as you know) is no dopey hotrodder but a real intelligent (in fact Jesuit) Irishman. You play Dean and I’ll play Sal (Warner Bros. mentioned I play Sal) and I’ll show you how Dean acts in real life, you couldn’t possibly imagine it without seeing a good imitation

    Birthday child 1 wrote,

    1) An understanding heart is everything in a teacher, and cannot be esteemed highly enough. One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feeling. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.
    2) Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol, morphine or idealism.
    3) Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to a better understanding of ourselves.

    Birthday child 2 wrote,

    1)A fanatic is a man who consciously over compensates a secret doubt.
    2)All gods are homemade, and it is we who pull their strings, and so, give them the power to pull ours.
    3)After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
