"I always felt that with an Antoine Doinel film, Truffaut was taking a vacation, that Francois could relax when making a Doinel film. All of the language came to him very easily.

"I think there's a time to work, and everyone has to kind of adjust. And then there's a time to relax, and be the mom or take the kids on vacation when you need to wind down.

Daryl Farmer's journey-into the heart of a land, of a time, into the very nature of memory and experience-is one I will never forget." - Jesse Lee Kercheval

"Your heart, my friend, is the size of a stadium. If you try to fill it with small things - a new car, a vacation, a promotion at work, a bigger home, a stock portfolio - a mournful echo will fill your life. But if you fill your stadium with all of humanity and search for ways to make their lives better each day, you will find yourself in the right place at the right time, doing the right thing in the right way." - Roy H Williams

But when you're working long hours, you don't get to spend time with your kids, you don't get a chance to take a vacation every now and then, you don't get a chance to make a big purchase (which helps the economy). There's something wrong with that. This isn't about wages, this about quality of life." - Nina Turner

"I did get tired of hearing that criticism years ago. That is not a compliment. Being labeled a "beach read" is a put-down.

"Before Community started up again for the season, we had the chance to go on a long family vacation where we drove for ten days down the coast.
