"People think we had a love-hate relationship. Well, I did not love  him, nor did I hate him. We had mutual respect for each other, even as  we both planned each others murder."
- Herzog on Kinski
"His speech is clumsy, with a toadlike indolence, long winded, pedantic,  choppy. The words tumble from his mouth in sentence fragments, which he  holds back as much as possible, as if they were earning interest. It  takes forever and a day for him to push out a clump of hardened brain  snot. Then he writhes in painful ecstasy, as if he had sugar on his  rotten teeth. A very slow blab machine. An obsolete model with a  non-working switch — it can’t be turned off unless you cut off the  electric power altogether. So I’d have to smash him in the kisser. No,  I’d have to knock him unconscious. But even if he were unconscious he’d  keep talking. Even if his vocal cords were sliced through, he’d keep  talking like a ventriloquist. Even if his throat were cut and his head  were chopped off, speech balloons would still dangle from his mouth like  gases emitted by internal decay."
