“Won’t you ever realize there are more important things in life than these schoolboy games?”
“Possibly…but you’re not one of them.”
–Colin (played by Jonathan Hole) to Julian Taylor (played by Vaughn Taylor)
The Chess Player episode of
Richard Diamond, Private Detective
screenplay by Ed Adamson
I’ve been working, from time to time, on a book of quotations for many years. I call it, “The Mind Boggles”, from one of my favorite quotations. I do source quotations a bit differently from a lot of people. In the case of a work of a fiction, I consider that the character said the line…not the author. As a bit of an author myself (in a minor way), I can tell you…my characters definitely say things that I would never say. These are all quotations that I’ve collected myself: I’ve read the book, seen the TV episode, and so on.
Hope you enjoy them!
