The previous thread I posted on what makes people change got me thinking about a saying - which I think is from a movie: "Nothing changes till you change it".

Then I started thinking about other favourite movie quotes - "Frankly, Scarlett, I don't give a damn" is definitely one of them, but also Sergeant Barnes in Platoon "There's the way we want the world to be, and there's the way it is".

What are yours? smile

You don't understand! I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I could've been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am.

On The Waterfront 1954.

Brilliant movie.
