I'm making a poster of one of my favorite quotes from Almost Famous:
You'll meet them all again on their long journey to the middle.
The quote was spoken by the character of Lester Bangs, who was written by Cameron Crowe, BUT the character was based on the real-life Lester Bangs.
To whom would you attribute the quote in this situation? I can't find out if Cameron Crowe was actually quoting the real Lester Bangs in this case, or if Crowe just invented the quote for the character, so I'm stumped.
