Kurosawa notes:

John Ford to Kurosawa:
-You love rain
Kurosawa to Ford:
- You really watched my films. 

Akira Kurosawa to an actress: 
-“Too sharp.  The sharper you play, the less power you got.” 

“Sensei does not have time for accidents.” - that’s from Chris Marker’s commentary in his documentary about Kurosawa. 

Kurosawa “When closing your eyes to evil, you will always be afraid.  Keeping them open you will understand that there is nothing to fear”. 

I wonder if the "closing eyes" insight came before or after Kurosawa's suicide attempt.
