[1] Cath Clarke, "The Directors: Terence Davies", Timeout, undated quote, regarding his sexuality and religion, with some self-loathing: "I don't like being gay. It has ruined my life. I am celibate -- although I think I would have been celibate even if I was straight because I'm not good-looking -- why would anyone be interested in me? And nobody has been. Work was my substitute. It was also my substitute for religion, because up until the age of at 22, I was a very devout Catholic. I stopped believing. I think we just die and there isnít anything beyond us."

[2] Simon Hattenstone, "Bigmouth Strikes Again", The Guardian, 20 October 2006: "I know it's tiresome but it's nonetheless true, being gay has ruined my life, and I've been celibate in order to bear that. And it has been a burden for me. I poured everything into my work."
