Monday's Quote - Moreau

“To me, life is going up until you are burned by flames. Life is an accomplishment and each moment has a meaning and you must use it. Life is given to you like a flat piece of land and everything has to be done. I hope that when I am finished, my piece of land will be a beautiful garden, so there is a lot of work.”

Jeanne Moreau, Oscar Werner and Henri Serre in Jules et Jim
Arguably the greatest cinema actress, and certainly both prolific in her own work as well as a muse to others, Moreau evidences her passion for life here as openly as she manages to slyly control its embers on screen.
