Movie Quote of the Day – Paris Is Burning, 1990 (dir. Jennie Livingston)

paris_is_burning

Dorian Corey: I always had hopes of being a big star. And then I looked–as you get older, you aim a little lower. And I just say, “Well, yeah, you still might make an impression.” Everybody wants to leave something behind them, some impression, some mark upon the world. Then you think, you’ve left a mark on the world if you just get through it, and a few people remember your name. Then you’ve left a mark. You don’t have to bend the whole world. I think it’s better to just enjoy it. Pay your dues, and enjoy it. If you shoot an arrow and it goes real high, hooray for you.
