Movie Quote of the Day – Winter Passing, 2005 (dir. Adam Rapp)
Shelley: As a teacher, he was always preaching compositional velocity and boring your fingers into the keyboard as though fiction is some kind of sport. And now, getting a paragraph out of him is like pulling a piano out of a pond. Would he ever show you his stuff?
Reese Holdin: I had to buy every book he has written.
Shelley: Must have been an interesting childhood.
Reese Holdin: Yeah. Competing for attention with twin No.3 Underwood typewriters won’t do too much for your self-esteem.
