Rushmore by Wes Anderson is one of my favourite movies. My favourite scene goes like this:
Max turns the page of his book. There is a photograph of Jacques Cousteau laughing uproariously. A little note is written in pencil in the margin next to it with an arrow pointing to the picture. Max frowns. He turns the book sideways to read it.
"When one person, for whatever reason, has a chance to lead an exceptional life, he has no right to keep it to himself."
Then you can hear the ocean in the background. Very charming and a very true quote that all creatives should live by.
