多年前，一个美国中年女人告诉我，自从她与男友分手后，她开始了绘画，以至于现在是专攻花卉写实的大拿了。 写作大体也一样吧。我从小喜欢写，多以抒情文体为主。现在到了mid thirty, 开始觉得人生是一眼望不到边际的暗沉和重重的负担，哪有20多岁时充满希望的劲头。 虽然希望可能是不切实际的，但却足以让人每天清晨从床上一跃而起。
For years, i haven’t seen any movie that is more of a “sum of wisdom” as the Godfather, a beautifully made film for its story, character and art of narratives. What I love the most, is the highest level of humanistic story telling techniques, interwoven with culture, history and visually stunning scenes.
: It seems in today’s world the power to absolve debt is greater than the power of forgiveness.
: [briefing the reporters
] The Pope – the Holy Father himself – has this very day blessed Michael Corleone; and you think you know better than the Pope?
: I spent my life protecting my son. I spent my life protecting my family!
: Let’s be reasonable here, Michael. I mean, that’s your big thing, isn’t it? Reason backed up by murder.
: [after learning of Zasa’s assassination
] Don’t ever give an order like that again. Not while I’m alive.
: Uncle Mike, it had to be done. You were too sick to make a decision. I got the go ahead from Neri and Connie.
: It was the right thing to do.
: It was not the right thing to do. I command this family, right or wrong. It was not what I wanted! Understand?
[Michael looks at Neri
[Michael looks at Connie for a long time
: You are my ‘ace in the hole,’ as we say in America. I have a stone in my shoe. You can remove it.
: Only one stone?
: [regarding Michael
] It’s dangerous. A famous man. You will have to take precautions.
: Tell me what to do. Then I will tell you my price.
: You like to gamble? Why don’t we go to Atlantic City? My town. I’ll show you how to gamble.
: Yeah, but I like to win. How will I know what numbers to pick?
: Do I look okay like a guy who’s gonna lose?
: [Giving instructions in a voiceover
] Neri; go to Rome. Light a candle for the archbishop.
: If someone is going around this city saying, “Fuck Michael Corleone,” what do we do with a piece of shit like that? He’s a fuckin’ dog.
: Yes, it’s true. If someone were to say such a thing, they would not be a friend. They would be a dog.
: You know, Michael; now that you’re so respectable, I think you’re more dangerous than ever. I liked you better when you were just a common Mafia hood.
Michael Corleone: [voiceover] My dear children: It is now better than several years since I moved to New York, and I haven’t seen you as much as I would like to. I hope you will come to the ceremony of papal honors given for my charitable work. The only wealth in this world is children; more than all the money, power on earth, you are my treasure.
: Your sins are terrible. It is just that you suffer. Your life could be redeemed, but I know you don’t believe that. You will not change.
: The richest man is the one with the most powerful friends.
: I swear on the lives of my children, give me one last chance to redeem myself and I will sin no more.
: Uncle Michael, listen – I know you’re into banks and Wall Street, but everyone knows you’re the final word, you’re like the Supreme Court. All I want to do is protect you from these guys and your lawyers can’t do that.
: It’s your favorite song, Michael, where you going?
: I’m just gonna go into the kitchen and listen to some Tony Bennett records.
: I’ve lost the lust for women, and now my mind is clear.
Just relax, and be yourself
周末在downtown闲逛， 发现了一个从未到过的南美餐厅，竟以小说百年孤独中的虚构小城Macondo命名，装修和菜单也引入了小说中的人物和情节。Columbian food was great, especially the signature dish with shrimps.
