On a day like today where the sun is nowhere to be found, this picture captures the kind of mood we're in. James Dean is truly one of the most original figures we have come to admire. He captured our attention in Rebel Without a Cause. His deep sense of self and ability to bring a dangerous carelessness in being the underdog/rebel give him that undefinable extra quality that continue to make him irresistible. Everything he did seemed honest and it's that truth to himself that we can't get enough of. Here are two of our favorite quotes:
Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.
Only the gentle are ever really strong.
