Hidden in plain sight
There are a few movies that I watch every year, and I never get sick of them. One of my favorites is The Third Man. During this year's viewing (earlier today) I was struck by the following quote, which I never thought about during my previous viewings:
In Italy, for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.” -Harry Lime (played by Orsen Wells)Cool quote, even if from a character who was a heartless killer.
