I absolutely cannot wait for autumn.
I have grown up in a great man’s shadow. All my life, I’ve been a symbol. A symbol is eternal, changeless… an abstraction. A human being is mortal and changeable, with desires and impulses, hopes and despairs. I’m tired of being a symbol, Chancellor. I long to be a human being! This longing I cannot suppress.
Queen Christina, 1933 | Rouben Mamoulian.
