Rod Serling Quote: “I find it very difficult to live through the censorship of profanity on television.”
Rod Serling Quote: “If in any quest for magic, in any search for sorcery, witchery, legerdemain, first check the human spirit.”
Rod Serling Quote: “I don’t enjoy any of the process of writing. I enjoy it when it goes on if it zings and it has great warmth and import and it’s successful.”
Rod Serling Quote: “I guess Requiem for a Heavyweight as old as it is was as honest a piece as I’ve ever done.”
Rod Serling Quote: “As long as they talk about you, you’re not really dead, as long as they speak your name, you continue. A legend doesn’t die, just because the man dies.”
Rod Serling Quote: “When I dig back through memory cells, I get one particularly distinctive feeling-and that’s one of warmth, comfort and well-being. For whatever else I may have had, or lost, or will find-I’ve still got a hometown. This, nobody’s gonna take away from me.”
Rod Serling Quote: “You gotta BELIEVE, Bolie!”
Rod Serling Quote: “Never make the mistake of assuming the audience is any less intelligent than you are.”
Rod Serling Quote: “Most screenplays, most motion pictures, owe much more to the screenplay. Ingmar Bergman has such an economy of language, so little language in his piece, it is so visual, his moods are introduced and buttressed by camera rather than by word or character. But again, that’s unique.”
Rod Serling Quote: “I find dictating in the mass media particularly good because you’re writing for voice anyway; you’re writing for people to say a line and, consequently, saying a line through a machine is quite a valid test for the validity of what you’re saying.”
Rod Serling Quote: “I was a Christmas present that was delivered unwrapped.”
Rod Serling Quote: “As he looked at his reflection in the dresser mirror, he felt that recurring surprise that the tall, attractive man staring back was he, and beyond that was the wonder that the image bore no real relationship to the man himself.”
Rod Serling Quote: “Infinitely more taboos, on television.”
Rod Serling Quote: “I’m afraid that if I started to ponder who I am and what I am, I might not like what I find.”
Rod Serling Quote: “I don’t feel, God dictated that I should write.”
Rod Serling Quote: “Do I want to start my own production company? No, I doubt it. I’m too old for that. I don’t want to start anything.”
Rod Serling Quote: “You can be a hunchback and a dwarf and what-all. If you write beautifully, you can write beautifully.”
Rod Serling Quote: “And what I further don’t understand is how little you appreciate the nature of your departure. Think of all the poor souls who go in violent accidents. These are the nonprecognition victim. We are not permitted to forewarn them. You, Mr. Bookman, fall into the category of natural causes.”
Rod Serling Quote: “Personally, my daughter’s wedding gave me a tremendous pleasure. And the wedding was a radiant event and I enjoyed it. I was afraid I’d cry. I’m given to crying at odd times, and I was very much afraid of the emotionalism of that moment, but I didn’t even come close to crying.”
Rod Serling Quote: “I’ve never really topped myself, because awards in themselves really don’t reflect major accomplishment. It’s kind of a strange, backslapping ritual that we go through in this town where you get awards for almost everything. For surviving the day you’re going to get awards.”
Rod Serling Quote: “Writers, like most human beings, are adaptable creatures. They can learn to accept subordination without growing fond of it. No writer can forever stand in the wings and watch other people take the curtain calls while his own contributions get lost in the shuffle.”
Rod Serling Quote: “I’m sufficiently independent to know that I can live well and comfortably all the rest of my life whether I’m rejected or not.”
Rod Serling Quote: “There are a lot I’m proud of, and a lot I wish the hell I’d never written.”
Rod Serling Quote: “If it sounds good as you say it, likely as not it’ll sound good when an actor’s saying it.”
Rod Serling Quote: “There are millions of ways to not be writing. You say you’re not in the mood, you’ll pick it up tomorrow.”
Rod Serling Quote: “The writer’s no different. When he’s rejected, that paper is rejected, in a sense, a sizeable fragment of the writer is rejected as well. It’s a piece of himself that’s being turned down.”
Rod Serling Quote: “The good agent probably is not the reader, he’s just the guy who can put together a deal.”
Rod Serling Quote: “If you need drugs to be a good writer, you are not a good writer.”
Rod Serling Quote: “You see, we can feed the stomach with concentrates, we can supply microfilm for reading, recreation, even movies of a sort, we can pump oxygen in, and waste material out, but there’s one thing we can’t simulate. That’s a very basic need. Man’s hunger for companionship. The barrier of loneliness, that’s one thing we haven’t licked yet.”
Rod Serling Quote: “It’s part of the business of really not caring about topping myself because I really don’t care what’s going to happen. I think just surviving is a major thing. I’d like to write something that my peers, my colleagues, my fellow writers would find a source of respect.”
Rod Serling Quote: “The tendency when you dictate is to overwrite, because you’re not counting pages, you don’t really know what the hell the page count is.”
Rod Serling Quote: “Not since the British raided Cologne had so many bombs landed in such a small space in such a short time.”
Rod Serling Quote: “Just drawing back and drawing in; becoming narcissistic.”
Rod Serling Quote: “Personally, my daughter’s wedding gave me a tremendous pleasure.”
Rod Serling Quote: “I choose to think of tv audience as nameless, formless, faceless people who are all like me. And anything that I write, if I like it, they’ll like it.”
Rod Serling Quote: “I miss the comraderie of live television – the fact that you were on the set, you worked closely with the director and the cast, that I miss. But, no, I’m happy, I’m happy doing film.”
Rod Serling Quote: “I think the essence of the argument has always been, first of all, the Guild doesn’t want writing on spec. And that’s been a major problem over the years. But obviously, to the young writer that’s unfair and it’s discriminatory, and it can be very hurtful to one’s career.”
Rod Serling Quote: “Beasley was a little man whose face looked like an X ray of an ulcer.”
Rod Serling Quote: “I don’t have any system. I dictate a lot, through a machine, and I also have a secretary. But I used to type just like everybody else.”
Rod Serling Quote: “All the Dachaus must remain standing. The Dachaus, the Belsens, the Buchenwalds, the Auschwitzes -all of them. They must remain standing because they are a monument to a moment in time when some men decided to turn the earth into a graveyard, into it they shoveled all of their reason, their logic, their knowledge, but worst of all their conscience. And the moment we forget this, the moment we cease to be haunted by its rememberance. Then we become the grave diggers.”
Rod Serling Quote: “All the Dachaus must remain standing.”
Rod Serling Quote: “And something inside the young man cracked. The small compartment in the back of his mind, where man closets his fears, ties them up, controls and commands them, broke open and they surged across brain and nerves and muscles – a nightmare flood in open rebellion.”
Rod Serling Quote: “I remember the first sale I made was a hundred and fifty dollars for a radio script, and, as poor as I was, I didn’t cash the check for three months. I kept showing it to people.”
Rod Serling Quote: “I only wanted to tell you that this was the wonderful time for you. Don’t let any of it go by without enjoying it. There won’t be any more merry-go-rounds. No more cotton candy. No more band concerts. I only wanted to tell you, Martin, that this is the wonderful time. Now! Here! That’s all. That’s all I wanted to tell you.”
Rod Serling Quote: “Over the long haul I’d say that most directors I’ve worked with have been pretty sensitive to the quality of the interpreted scenes.”
Rod Serling Quote: “I couldn’t direct because I’m too impatient and I couldn’t put together a package because I don’t understand money. I’d rather just do what I’m doing.”
Rod Serling Quote: “If you write beautifully, you write beautifully, that’s all.”
Rod Serling Quote: “I don’t know what my friends do. Generally they become producers. That way they can stop writing!”
Rod Serling Quote: “The major difference frequently is in time. The motion picture, for example, gives you considerably more freedom of expression than does the confined thirty-minute television show. But in essence, they’re not that dissimilar.”
Rod Serling Quote: “If the producer doesn’t like you, consequently he reads the script with a very negative view. But I wouldn’t preoccupy myself with that, I don’t give a damn. You can be a hunchback and a dwarf and whatall.”
