Guillermo del Toro on a Different Kind of Salvation
"I think there's a point in our life, when we're kids, when literature and magic and fantasy has as strong a presence in our soul as religion would have in later days. I think that it's a spiritual reality as strong as when people say 'I accept Jesus in my heart' -- well, at a certain age, I accepted monsters in my heart."
"I received Jesus into my heart and it was Godzilla."
"We live our lives sometimes believing we're immortal. And we're not. Our lives actually gain more sense when we believe in pain and when we believe in mortality."
- Guillermo del Toro, director of Pan's Labyrinth on NPR's Fresh Air
