I sort of feel that climate change will be solved by science. I just feel instinctively that we will find a way of saving ourselves. But I am less confident that we won’t destroy ourselves in other ways.

Richard Eyre Science Quote

A place makes a deep impression on you when you’re young. It lives with you. It’s like your childhood. It fertilises the imagination.

Richard Eyre Imagination Quote

I believe there is a relationship between having an interest in the arts and the behaviour of society as a whole. Some politicians find it difficult that the arts is a weapon of happiness… Politics is often about deprivation rather than the opening up of ideas and nourishing creative endeavour.

I envy the happiness of others… I envy the sense of belonging… I seem always to be remaking myself.

The arts are weapons of understanding and weapons of happiness.
