Gary Ross quotes :
Really, each era has its own false nostalgia. We all put a picket fence up around something. For my generation it was the '50s, and for other generations it will be something else. Change is scary for everyone, as is complexity, contradiction, and an uncertain future.Gary Ross
I don't understand people who dream in black and white. I just don't get it. My dreams have always been vivid color.Gary Ross
History is full of examples of people who clamp down after they began to enjoy too much freedom. Freedom can lead to instability, anarchy, and confusion. So there can be a moral counter-revolution.Gary Ross
