More From Gary Ross
- "Most modern science fiction went to school on ‘Dune.’ Even ‘Harry Potter’ with its ‘boy protagonist who has not yet grown into his destiny’ shares a common theme. When I read it for the first time, I felt like I had learned another language, mastered a new culture, adopted a new religion."
- "I love all the old classic Disney movies. ‘Pinocchio.’ There are obviously tons of them that anybody growing up on that stuff takes with them their whole lives, and I’m an admirer of a lot of classic animation and fairy tales. I grew up on a book of Grimm’s fairy tales that I kind of wore out again and again. That’s all stuff that lingers with you."
- "Family entertainment is really very necessary in our culture. Look how profitable they are. It’s almost not discretionary. You need to take your family to the movies."

- "Nature is not human hearted."― Lao Tzu
- "That’s what noir feels like to me. It feels like some kind of recurring dream, with very strong archetypes operating. You know, the guilty girl being pursued, falling, all kinds of stuff that we see in our dreams all the time."― Brian De Palma
- "If I thought that any of this was pre ordained, then it takes away any kind of incentive to struggle, or to put up with things, to reach for those impossible dreams, all those dramatic things."― Gary Numan
