I have only one to add, but I love it. It's from the Logo special about BBM ("them" refers to the audience, to us):

"I hope it sticks to them. I hope it gets them thinking. I hope it presents more questions than answers."

Definitely, Heath, definitely.

I think there were interviews in GQ and VLife with Heath that I do not have access to.  I am hoping someone will check out their memorabilia collections and maybe find some more quotes to contribute...

"Heath, I swear..."

Bruce, how would you feel about us including aural and visual Heath quotes?  Actual videos or audio tapes?  Or would you prefer a separate thread for that?

I think adding audio and video is a great great idea!

(I'd need some help with that...)

{{{{Bruce}}}}  This is the best idea for a thread!!!!  What an absolutely wonderful archive of quotations this is becoming.  Reading all of these is just so interesting.  I can imagine this being a really valuable resource long into the future. 

I copied one from way back at the beginning of this thread that I loved. "It transcends a label. It's a story of two human beings that are in love; get over the fact that it's two men — that's the point.”

They're all just so great!

Thank you for all your work compiling these.
:)

Thanks everyone for all these.  Part of my grieving process would be to go out, buy a lovely blank book, stick my favorite pictures of Heath in it and handwrite all of these quotes down in it.

Lovely.

Hey True,
This is a great topic for a thread. Finally a compilation of Heath's thoughts on Brokeback all in one place.
I'm still sore 'bout that so-called "Special Edition DVD". It doesn't even have the original trailer for the film on there!

Regarding Batman:

HL: No, but I did do 3-D image scanning. I don’t know what they’re doing with it. This Bat truck turned up at my place in L.A.. It had these gadgets and cameras that zoom around you and up and down you. It instantly projects a three dimensional image of you. I’ve never used anything that high tech before in a film. I felt like I was in the truck from Knight Rider.

Ironically, this might be the key to finishing up "The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus".

"Monster's Ball" was the first time I felt like I had to do something about it; and what I had to do was essentially nothing. At the time, I just boiled it down, take off the shine, and destroy it a little bit.
