TOPIC: ECSTASY 

Ecstasy is not really part of the scene we can do on celluloid.
Orson Welles (1915–85), U.S. filmmaker, actor, producer. Interview in David Frost, The Americans, "Can a Martian Survive by Pretending to be a Leading American Actor?" (1970).

Life has always taken place in a tumult without apparent cohesion, but it only finds its grandeur and its reality in ecstasy and in ecstatic love.
Georges Bataille (1897–1962), French novelist, critic. "The Sacred Conspiracy," in Acéphale, no. 1 (Paris, 1 June 1936; repr. in Visions of Excess: Selected Writings 1927–1939, ed. by Allan Stoekl, 1985).

O my God, what must a soul be like when it is in this state! It longs to be all one tongue with which to praise the Lord. It utters a thousand pious follies, in a continuous endeavor to please Him who thus possesses it.
Saint Teresa of Avila (1515–82), Spanish nun, mystic. Life, ch. 16 (tr. by Cohen, 1957).
