Dick Van Dyke Quote
“We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone.”
Someone to Love (film, 1987). The film was released after his death, and it was Orson's final film appearance.
“Be a loner. That gives you time to wonder, to search for the truth. Have holy curiosity. Make your life worth living.”
Einstein and the Poet (1983)
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
Address to the annual meeting of the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, (30 March 1961)
