“I won’t take anyone’s interpretation away from anybody—not because I feel that certain interpretations are more provable than others, but because if you’re trying to “prove” a particular theory about the ending of a consciously ambiguous and at times tactically frustrating work of popular art, you’re watching it wrong. You’re trying to conquer and subdue a work that cannot be conquered or subdued, because it was never out to fool you or beat you or turn you into a bunch off engineers solving for “X.” The Sopranos was never about ending mysteries, it was about recognizing and exploring the mysteries of everyday life: the mysteries of personality, motivation, conditioning and free will, as expressed through behavior and conversation and action, and as translated into metaphor through fantasies and dreams.”—David Chase Offers Response to ‘Tony Soprano Didn’t Die’ Article

Now what’s really important to me are the words and the instructions of Laurent Blanc because Mourihno at Chelsea belongs to the past now. I was very happy over there, I was twice European champion, I won three titles in total, also I won individual awards but now this belongs to the past and I’m looking forward and I’m looking to the present.”—David Luiz, saying his experience at Chelsea and training under coach Jose Mourinho was a thing of the past following media reports of Mourihno saying he would not miss Luiz in the team.
