Re: favourite lines?

The movie "Beautiful Mai" by the late Chris Marker ends with a kind of a poem:

As long as there is misery
you are not happy.
As long as there is poverty
you are not rich.
As long as there are prisons
you are not free.

Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, "In this world, Elwood, you must be" - she always called me Elwood - "In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant." Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me.
