Jim Jarmusch Quotes

Quotes by Jim Jarmusch - (10 quotes)

Jim Jarmusch - From the Acceptance category:

A lot of poets, too, live on the margins of social acceptance; they certainly aren't in it for the money. William Blake - only his first book was legitimately published. (Jim Jarmusch)

Jim Jarmusch - From the Choices category:

Ghost Dog: In the words of the ancients, one should make his decision within the space of seven breaths. It is a matter of being determined and having the spirit to break through to the other side. (Jim Jarmusch)

Jim Jarmusch - From the Form category:

I think it comes from really liking literary forms. Poetry is very beautiful, but the space on the page can be as affecting as where the text is. Like when Miles Davis doesn't play; it has a poignancy to it. (Jim Jarmusch)

Jim Jarmusch - From the Language category:

A lot of innovation in language comes from poetry. (Jim Jarmusch)

Jim Jarmusch - From the Music category:

Music, to me, is the most beautiful form, and I love film because film is very related to music. It moves by you in its own rhythm... Imagine the world without music. Man, just hand me a gun, will you? (Jim Jarmusch)

Jim Jarmusch - From the Plagiarism category:

Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination... Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. (Jim Jarmusch)

Jim Jarmusch - From the Poetry category:

I think of poets as outlaw visionaries in a way. (Jim Jarmusch)

If anyone tells you there is only one way - their way - get as far away from them as possible, both physically and philosophically. (Jim Jarmusch)

Jim Jarmusch - From the Standards category:

It was a really interesting time in New York in the late '70s and early '80s, and the music scene was really, really interesting because you didn't have to be a virtuoso to make music. It was more about your desire to express things. (Jim Jarmusch)

Jim Jarmusch - From the Writing category:

Life has no plot; why must films or fiction? (Jim Jarmusch)
